It’s the Davey Mac Sports Report for Thursday, August 4th, 2022!   Catch up on what you missed yesterday in Sports with the article below!

Let’s start with baseball…where the Yankees lost an afternoon game to the Mariners yesterday…final score…7 to 3.   Gerrit Cole had a disastrous first inning…giving up six runs…his worst first inning in his career.   He settled down after that and pitched well but that was far too many runs for the Mariners’ talented new starter Luis Castillo…who picked up the win for Seattle.   Aaron Judge had the day off yesterday so no Home Run Watch for Mr. Judge.  At 70 and 36, the Yanks still have the best record in the A.L. by a couple games over the Astros.

Meanwhile, the Mets took down the Nationals…9 to 5.   Pete Alonso slugged his 28th homer of the season.   Met DH Daniel Vogelback connected for a grand slam as well.   The Mets improve to 66 and 38.

Basketball.   Former Knick guard Iman Shumpert was arrested recently after he allegedly had what authorities are describing as a “sizable” amount of marijuana in his bag at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.   Shumpert was drafted by the Knicks in 2011 and recently won Dancing With The Stars.   Crazy.

Over to football.   The NFL is appealing the six-game suspension that Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson has received from a third party arbiter.  Roger Goodell and the NFL are seeking a tougher penalty for Watson.   Goodell will now look for a new third party to hear the appeal.   Meanwhile, Watson’s camp is unhappy with what they see as Goodell just taking over the process.

Finally… Aaron Rodgers said in an interview that psychedelic drugs helped his mental health and his relationship with the Packers.   Rodgers says that he ingested ayahuasca, which is a psychedelic-based plant, in order to feel unconditional love for all…including the Packers.   Look for Rodgers to now become a huge Pink Floyd fan while getting addicted to Cool Ranch Doritos.
