The Yankees, Red Sox, and Phillies are on everyone’s lists to contend for the World Series in 2010, but the new-look Mariners could give those teams a run for their money. Bill talks with Larry Stone of the Seattle Times about Ichiro, Cliff Lee, and the team’s chances in the AL West.

They say “you’re only as old as you feel,” and Philadelphia pitcher Jamie Moyer can certainly attest to that. At the age of 47, he’ll take the mound in his 24th major league season and try to help the Phillies return to the playoffs. Only A Game’s Ron Schachter has the story.

March has come and gone, but there’s still plenty of college basketball madness to go around. Yes, the Final Four is upon us, and the men’s and women’s tournaments are up for grabs. Bill is joined by Only A Game regulars Pat Forde of ESPN.com and Michelle Smith of AOL Fanhouse to discuss the home stretch of college hoops.

Tired of hearing about Tiger Woods and his recent scandal? We don’t blame you. That’s why we’re turning back the clock and exploring an old golf mystery: the death of J. Douglas Edgar, the man who developed the modern golf swing. Bill talks with Steve Eubanks, author of To Win and Die in Dixie, about the remarkable life and puzzling death of one of the best players of the early 1900s. 

As an April fool’s joke, we told Only A Game analyst Charlie Pierce that he had the week off, but he wanted to cover the week in sports with Bill anyway! They’ll discuss the NCAA’s proposal to expand the men’s basketball tournament, Ron Artest’s reality show, and the proposition of spring training in Italy.

Pole dancing might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of competitive sports, but the US Pole Dance Federation thinks otherwise. As Only A Game’s Karen Given reports, competitive pole dancing combines athleticism, grace, and a respectable amount of clothing.
