MONDAY’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION
In theory, the U.S. Open will come to a close Monday. Unless there’s a playoff. 9 a.m., ESPN; 11:30 a.m., Chs. 4, 11
WEEKEND REWIND IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
Baseball flipped on its head - Despite a Sunday loss by the Nationals, the two last-place teams in what Peter Angelos would describe as our market had an unlikely weekend. The Baltimore Orioles remain in last place in the AL East but swept the defending World Series champion Phillies in Philadelphia. And the hapless Nationals won four games in a row to close the week - two over the Yankees, two over the Blue Jays - before falling Sunday in the series finale with Toronto.
Washout at Bethpage - It’s hard to get excited about a U.S. Open that seems like it never started and that features a relative no-name atop the leader board. And it could still be going on Tuesday if there’s more bad weather or, worse, a playoff. And rest assured, you won’t see the likes of Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson in said playoff; you’ll get treated to the aforementioned fellows and maybe the other feel-good story, David Duval. Maybe.
TWT FIVE NBA TEAMS LOOKING TO MAKE DRAFT DAY TRADES
1. Bulls — They have two low picks — no good in a year like this; they’re looking to move up.
2. Knicks — They have players they’re targeting and salary they want to clear.
3. Wizards — Could use a veteran more than another rookie, plus they could use some cap room.
4. Timberwolves — The team is in disarray, there’s no coach and the GM says no one is untouchable.
5. Suns — They have two All-Star bigs, Shaq and Amare, they would like to move; someone will bite.
