Greg Oden was arrested early Thursday morning in Lawrence, Ind. after he allegedly punched a female. According to the probable cause affidavit obtained by WTHR, a witness claims to have seen the NBA free agent punch a woman in the face.
No matter how much a women may stress you out, there is no excuse for taking physical action. Hopefully for Oden this arrest won't result in him losing his job, although he is barely hanging onto it as it is.

Philip Rivers says trade talk didn’t come from his side.
This whole situation has been much to do about nothing. Rivers said he planned to play out his contract which expires after 2015 instead of sign an extension which caused rumors to swirl. "A lot of moving parts and lots to think about. Location, family, team … All I can say at this point regarding an extension is I’m willing to listen to anything. I’m also willing to play it out. I’m just fired up to be the Chargers QB in 2015," Rivers said. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Rougned Odor is a candidate to be demoted.
He's currently slashing .146/.263/.244 with a 21-percent strikeout rate and a 50-percent ground ball rate. There hasn't been a point at all where it even looked like he was going to work himself out of this slump, so the Rangers are going to have to take a hard look at what they have, which isn't much. If you've been saddled with him in AL-only play, we hope you've already found at least a viable placeholder. Analysis: Howard Bender
