Sorry, quick links again today. Gonna be a fun show making fun of Brett Favre. Did you hear the stuff about his daughter? What a joke! He even ticked off Brock! “Kissing Suzy Kolber blog” has a really angry rant about Favre (tons of foul language there so be careful).

Also, we talk to Jarrod Washburn at 12:25. His take on Favre should be good too (he is a HUGE football fan from Wisconsin). Time to look at the July 31st trade again…

Felix Hernandez pitched great again but bad defense in the 8th inning led to a Detroit Tiger win.

Jarrod Washburn will face the Mariners on Thursday and despite the hitters knowing all his pitches, Washburn is going to change anything.

The Huskies had their first full scrimmage yesterday, the running game looked surprisingly good.

Although the running game looked good it didn’t provide many answers says Scott Johnson.

Husky running back Chris Polk almost quit the team after an injury and a team that felt like strangers but is happy that he stayed around.

Johri Fogerson is thriving in practice after being moved back to running back.

Notes:
-Mariners play early again at 4:05

-Ian Snell is 2-9 with a 5.84 ERA; he’ll start for the Mariners.

-Justin Verlander (13-6, 3.28 ERA) is a legitimate Cy Young candidate; leading the AL in strikeouts.
