Derek Jeter - Party of Five makes a regrettable wager

1. Rap mogul Brian "Baby" Williams, also known as "Birdman," reportedly lost $2 million after betting on the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. What can we learn from this?

Michael Philbrick: I think we all know that anything involving a slam dunk and a Birdman just don't mix.

Dave Wilson: Well, Birdman reportedly just bought an $8 million Mayback Exelero to add to his $2.1 million Bugatti Veyron and $1.5 million Maybach Landaulet. So it just means he had too much money to begin with.

Jim Caple: Apparently, Birdman is also the financial adviser for the McCourts and Fred Wilpon.

Thomas Neumann: He made a rookie mistake betting big on the NBA Finals. Everyone knows the smart money in South Florida is wagered on youth football.

DJ Gallo: There's a rumor that Mark Cuban's bar tab was $200,000 Sunday night. So I think the lesson is this: try to be a mogul or billionaire; then you can just throw money around like it's nothing. Read More

Derek Jeter Injury: Yankees Star Limps Toward First Base, Leaves Game
Yankees star Derek Jeter limped out of Monday night's game with a sore right calf in the fifth inning, stalling his pursuit of 3,000 career hits.

There was no immediate word on the severity of his injury.

Jeter singled his first time up against Cleveland for his 2,994th hit. He looked fine when he grounded out the next time up and seemed to be having no problems at shortstop.

But the New York captain looked to be having trouble as soon as he hit a fly to right field in the fifth. He was limping with his first step out of the batter's box – he wasn't totally hobbled, though it was noticeable – and jogged down the line. He touched first base after the ball was caught, returned to the dugout and left the game. Read More
