The NBA’s Board of Governors meets Wednesday in Dallas to vote on the sale of the Sacramento Kings to a group of Seattle investors led by Chris Hansen and Steve Ballmer.
As the Seattle Mariners approach the quarter mark of the 2013 season, we can deduce this much about their everyday lineup: It’s better, and way more fun to watch, when Michael Saunders is batting leadoff.

The Seattle Seahawks don’t figure to be first-round players in the NFL draft, which begins Thursday and will run, well, longer than the typical human brain is wired to tolerate.
