Ian O'Connor highlights the site today with an original take on the Armando Galarraga blown call: Ian asks Bud Selig to use his "best interests of baseball" powers to overturn umpire Jim Joyce's decision, and explains why, based on Ian's knowledge of Bud, this could actually happen.

We've also got Rob Parker on why Jorge Posada should be the Yankees' DH, Wally Matthews on Robby Cano's star turn against the Orioles and Adam Rubin on another frustrating night for the Mets and Johan Santana. Kieran Darcy is in the Bronx for a Yanks-O's matinee.

Compelling package coming today, with video, on the 1976 Ali-Norton fight -- the last one held at Yankee Stadium. Mike Woods has a lookback at that wild night, in which the NYPD turned its back on security outside the park and petty crime was rampant in the streets. Wally Matthews will add his own reminiscence -- he was there, as a 19-year-old fan, and the lack of security meant he was able to walk right up and claim a ringside seat.

Sherry Ross, our person at Belmont, has a feature on Uptowncharlybrown, the horse whose trainer died suddenly in April. It'll be accompanied by a video piece by ESPN's Tom Rinaldi.

Sherry will chat from Belmont at noon.

Jane McManus is doing double duty today with her flipcam today -- she'll be at Jets OTA this afternoon, and tonight she and Ohm Youngmisuk will be at Justin Tuck's charity billiards event.
