Ten perfect 10s and the Yanks exact revenge

Ten for 10

Troy Smith, Marshawn Lynch, Dennis Dixon. What do all of them share? They were just a few stars who donned the No. 10 in the past 10 years, Dennis Dodd says as he continues to look at the Golden Decade. Story

Major breakthrough

The Yanks exorcise a year's worth of frustration. After dropping the first eight to Boston, N.Y. exacts revenge in a 13-6 win. John Smoltz's latest rough game has Danny Knobler wondering if the righty's career is over.

Lakers go up 3-1 and the Yanks lose again

Doomed Magic

Untimely miscues hurt Orlando in a 99-91 OT loss to L.A., putting it in a 3-1 hole. And Ken Berger says Mickael Pietrus' dangerous foul at the end ought to get him suspended for Game 5. | Doyel: Fisher true winner

Eight is great

Ouch, 0-8 has to hurt, Yanks fans. Boston extends its perfect mark in 2009 vs. New York with a 4-3 win. In measuring up to the only team that matters, the Yanks are a very distant second, Danny Knobler says.

Bryant looks to rebound and the Pens stay focused

Scaling the wall

In Game 3 of the Finals, Kobe Bryant shot bricks from the line. And where there's bricks, there's a wall -- one the Lakers star will try to run through, no matter how tired he is, Ken Berger says. | Doyel: Sporadic Odom

Marc of excellence

Cold. Lonely. That is a Penguin's march; just ask netminder Marc-Andre Fleury. But survival could mean a Stanley Cup at the end of the journey, Wes Goldstein says before an all-or-nothing Game 7 in Detroit. Column

Tex miss

The Red Sox wanted Mark Teixeira badly this past offseason. Instead, he chose the Yankees. Even with a sterling 7-0 start against its hated rivals, Boston still must dream of what could have been, Danny Knobler says.

Best, then the rest

The Jays, Red Sox and Cards remain the cream of the crop. The rest of the league, meanwhile, can take solace knowing they're not Padre-bad. Well, except for the Padres, Larry Dobrow says. Power Rankings
