Grant Balfour was charged with his second blown save after he allowed one run on two hits and two walks with one strikeout over one inning against the A's on Thursday
It has been a nightmare season through seven weeks for Grant Balfour. This may have only been his second blown save, but his overall numbers are gross. His ERA currently sits at 5.89 and he's actually walked (18) more batters than he has struck out (15.) A removal from the closer's role is rapidly approaching.ANALYST: David Kerr
Le'Veon Bell (knee) hasn't been cleared to start running yet.
After an injury plagued 2015 season, Bell is looking to get healthy and be ready for the regular season. He has not yet been cleared to start running but with the Super Bowl not being played yet, Bell has time to get back into shape. Expect him and the Steelers training staff to work hard on getting him ready for the regular season where he should be considered a top fantasy RB. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
Kings are strongly weighing the firing of coach George Karl.
It has been rumored for quite some time that it wouldn't be long before Karl was out as the coach in Sacramento. It seems like that time has come as Karl has lost support in the front office among other riffs with players on the team. There is no doubt Karl is a great coach but this fit with the Kings just wasn't a good one from the start. Analysis: Dillon Conklin
