Giants working on mega-deal for Posey?

For the record, the Giants are 2-for-2 in World Series when young star Buster Posey plays, and 0-for-ever without him. The Giants have quietly started contract talks with the goal of locking up [Posey] to a mega deal. Word is, there's a decent-sized gap at this point, though not enough of a gap that the team or Posey has given up trying. Posey surely would like to be a Giant for life if at all possible, and the Giants, run by very smart and deep-pocketed people, wouldn't be opposed to such an arrangement, either, if it can be accomplished. The question is, how long? And of course, for how much? These are not easy questions since Posey is a once-in-a-generation type player who's won two World Series and an MVP award.

Urlacher's next team could be ...

Joe Namath played for the Rams, Thurman Thomas played for the Dolphins and Joe Montana played for the Chiefs -- it happens. [When] it's a franchise icon, it forces us to step back and realize that nothing lasts forever. All you'll do is get hurt in the end. Then you have to see that player trying to hang on in another uniform, something that looks about as normal as a white suit at a funeral. I imagine Urlacher will hang on and play somewhere else. Dallas or Denver? Maybe he can be like Peyton Manning, an icon with the Colts who was released only to bounce back and have a Pro Bowl season. ... Urlacher and No. 54 in Bears blue just seem to go together. It just doesn't seem right that we won't see it again, does it? (CBS Sports) Comment

Zeller's NBA plans hinge on degree?

The Zellers are used to putting up big numbers in the classroom (the lowest high school GPA among Luke, Tyler and Cody was a 3.999). [Cody] stands to make millions in the NBA, perhaps as soon as this summer. For now, though, Zeller keeps the "student" in student-athlete as a business major with a 3.44 grade-point average. ... When Zeller can finish his management degree has been a subject of speculation because it might affect his decision to enter the NBA. One report said he could earn a degree by the end of the upcoming summer session. Others think it may be in January 2014 after the first semester of his junior year. ... Zeller declined to discuss when he plans to graduate. (The Indianapolis Star) Comment
