The sad news came that the troubled country music star Mindy McCready was found dead yesterday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. She was 37.

The New York Yankees traded pitchers David Wells and Graeme Lloyd and IF Homer Bush to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens.

It always comes back to baseball.
