What you missed while welcoming hip hop back from the dead vacation...
• Baseball: Scott Baker took perfection into the ninth against the Royals. The Big Lead is still engorged.
• Football: Michael Strahan surprised nobody when he decided to return to the Giants. Jean's gotta get paid.
• Boxing: Shamone Alvarez improved upon his perfect record with a unanimous decision over Germaine Sanders. The fight wasn't nearly as boring as I had anticipated.
