Pregame Reads

  • Slate's Jordan Ellenberg believes the only metric he needs to prove baseball is great is the joy his 8-year-old son gets from the game.
  • Bill Belichick had some confusion with rules this weekend. Mike Tanier of Sports on Earth has a few more clarifications for the surly coach.
  • Andrew Lawrence of MMQB spent Sunday with Lovie Smith, analyzing games and longing for a return to the sideline.


Starter

30 for 30: Big Shot, 8:00p.m. (ESPN)

For a brief period, John Spano appeared to be a savior for the woeful New York Islanders. But four months into his reign, he was indicted on multiple fraud charges and joined the ranks of the most ignominious GMs of all time. Director Kevin Connolly -- that's right: E from Entourage -- even managed to snag an interview with Spano himself. Man, that Vince is connected.
