Who's Hot, Who's Not

It's Hot or Not time on The Sports Flow. We started this segment two Sunday's ago and we'll try to do it every Sunday. And to help us out you can suggest some athletes or teams, for that matter, of your own who have been on a hot streak. Leave your suggestions here if you'd like for future reference: thesportsflow@hotmail.com


Hot
Gary Sheffield
The "Sheff" has 17 hits in his last 10 games along with 4 HR and 10 RBI. He's making the Yanks look like fools for giving him up and he's helping the Tigers stay ahead in the AL Central while New York remains 9 back from Boston.

USA U-19 Basketball
The U.S. team improved to 3-0 after a win over Serbia and advances to the second round and will face Lithuania on July 16 before playing Brazil (July 17) and France (July 18). In group action the US went 3-0 by defeating Mali 118-56, China 103-77, and Serbia 82-78. Michael Beasley (KSU), Matt Bouldin (Gonzaga), David Lighty (OSU), and Tajuan Porter (Oregon) are a few notable players on the team.

USA Softball
The USA Softball team has cruised through round robin play going 5-0 with wins over Venezuela 9-1, China 8-0, Dominican Republic 9-0, Japan 4-1, and Canada 7-0. They will now play in the finals on Monday starting at 7:00 pm CDT.

Fred Thompson
For a change of pace here's some politics; TSF supports Fred, so why not put him on? While he has yet to join the 10-man Republican race, he has soared in polls, taken in at least several million dollars, assembled a staff and visited early primary states New Hampshire and South Carolina and has now overtaken Rudy Giuliani as the Republican front-runner in North Carolina.


Not
Vicente Padilla
Has a 3-8 record with a 6.69 ERA, 1.81 WHIP, and .326 BAA in 15 games and 80.2 innings. What a waste of a $34 million contract.

Lebanon U-19 Basketball
Although playing in a tough group, Lebanon was pounded in all of it's games at the U-19 World Basketball Championships losing to Brazil 83-67, Lithuania 105-69, and France 100-58.

Dominican Republic Softball
DR is 0-4 thus far in the KFC World Cup of Softball. While scoring only 2 runs in the tournament so far they were one-hit by the always good looking Jennie Finch, lost 3-0 to Canada, 3-2 vs. Venezuela, and 8-0 to Japan.

John Edwards
The Democratic Presidential Candidate has lost the lead in his home state, a new poll shows. Edwards, from North Carolina, got support from 26 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in a state survey conducted by Public Policy Polling. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were both the Democratic front-runners at 27% each.
