The Cincinnati Reds have made a tremendous lopsided deal acquiring top pitching prospect Luis Castillo, legitimate bullpen arm in Austin Brice and an athletic OF prospect in Isaiah White. They sell high on Dan Straily, who's coming off his career best season but his peripherals say he won't repeat it. A back of rotation type starter. Castillo straight up for Straily would have been a win for the Reds. Great job of grinding by Reds GM Dick Williams on this one.

How amazing is Denis Istomin's five-set upset of defending champ Novak Djokovic in the second round of the Australian Open? Djokovic was going for a record seventh title. He had won 40 of his last 41 matches here. Istomin, who is ranked 117th, didn't win a single match on the ATP Tour last year. Djokovic was 5-0 against him before this match and lost only one set. The world No. 2 congratulated Istomin afterward for "playing amazing. He deserved to win. He was the better player in clutch moments....Many things came together for him today."
