The hottest team in baseball could soon have a big problem on their hands, another team has accomplished something they haven't done since Michael Keaton was Batman and are you ready for some football?

That means it's time for sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky, who have covered sports for the L.A. Times and ESPN. 

The Dodgers are on another winning streak. This is one stands at six and they're all but a lock to win the National League West, but Andy tells us why they could soon have an overcrowding problem on their hands. 

Sometimes teams lose their best player, rally together, succeed, and then have to deal with his return. For the Dodgers, is this going to a blessing or curse?

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are not going to make the playoffs, but might be changing their name yet again?

The Pittsburgh Pirates have accomplished something they have not been able to do in 20 years.  

Lebron James has many revenue avenues. He's got that little basketball player job, he's pitchman for Nike, Coke, McDonald's just to name a few. Now he's added another title to his business card. 

64-year old Diana Nyad swam 110 miles between Cuba and Florida without a shark cage. Wouldn't this have to go down as one of the most impressive athletic feats of all-time?  

The NFL season kicks off tomorrow in Denver when the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens visit the Broncos. Before we get some predictions for the upcoming season, guys once the games begin the NFL just has a way of getting all it's seedier stories out of the headlines. Aaron Hernandez, the concussion lawsuit settlement — it all seems to just go away because we have games now.  

Since the season is starting tomorrow, which two teams do Andy and Brian predict to make it to the Super Bowl? 

When the final two teams meet in the Super Bowl, it'll be Feb 2 in an outdoor stadium in New York. Last February 2 in New York, the high temperature was 29 degrees. Is this a disaster waiting to happen?
