Sportsbash Tuesday: Should USGA Look to Return to Merion?
Tuesday, June 18th 2013
Golf Channel's Jason Sobel called in to recap the US Open from nearby Merion today and also answered a few questions on whether or not it will return in the future. Now the next available year is 2021 and Sobel told Mike and Todd that he does believe it will return at some point. The only thing that may need to be improved are the logistics of the course, i.e. clubhouses, driving range, putting green, etc. Follow Sobel on Twitter.
Our Flyers insider called in to talk about the Flyers signing of Mark Streit, a defenseman from the Islanders whom they acquired last week in a trade. There have also been some grumblings about the Flyers look to trade with (again) the LA Kings and acquire their backup goaltender in Johnathan Bernier. This would obviously have to come with the buyout of Ilya Bryzgalov and Dave wants to hold off on that for now. Isaac did say that he expects Danny Briere to be bought out with this signing of Streit. Follow Isaac on Twitter.
