Barry Bonds, baseball's all-time single-season and career home run leader, has a new career as a roving hitting instructor for the Giants. That much isn't surprising -- though his name was connected to allegations of steroid use, Bonds is in the argument for the finest hitter of all time. Also unsurprising is the fact that he believes he belongs in the Hall of Fame. Bonds has hovered below 40 percent in his two seasons on the ballot and faces a strong uphill battle for induction, but given that he has over a decade still on the ballot, there's plenty of time for a reappraisal of his storied and controversial career.

Clippers win eighth straight
The Clippers are the hottest team in basketball right now, winning eight straight games against the likes of the Thunder and Rockets. They've been so good, in fact, that J.A. Adande thinks it's time to include Blake Griffin in the MVP race, formerly a two-person competition between Kevin Durant and LeBron James. Griffin definitely looked like an MVP last night against the Suns, scoring 37 points and only missing two of his 16 shots. With a healthy Chris Paul dishing assists to Griffin, the Clippers could be a force in the playoffs.

Bucs to release Darrelle Revis?
Revis Island might not be the luxury location it once was. According to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers likely will release cornerback Darrelle Revis if they can't find a trade partner before 4 p.m. ET Wednesday. This would save the Bucs money, and also mean they would have to send only a fourth-round pick, instead of a third-round pick, to the New York Jets as part of last offseason's trade. The Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders reportedly are interested. What does this potential move say about this one-time shutdown corner?
Seahawks to win 2015 Super Bowl?
Yeah, OK, so we're barely more than a month removed from the most recent Super Bowl, and the NFL famously produces surprise champions. But with the Seattle Seahawks on Monday re-signing defensive end Michael Bennett -- thought by many to be the best free agent in this year's class -- and coming off such a comprehensive title-clinching victory over the Denver Broncos, it's impossible to avoid thinking of a repeat in the Emerald City.
