Yesterday, the Oakland Raiders released 2009 sixth-round draft pick Stryker Sulak, a defensive lineman from Missouri. Today's quick hits takes a look at why it isn't a surprising move.

One, the Raiders drafted Sulak at a time when they were trying to trade defensive end Derrick Burgess to the New England Patriots and defensive end Greg Ellis still was a member of the Dallas Cowboys. Burgess still is with the Raiders, and Ellis since has signed with the Raiders. Sulak’s chances of making the 53-man roster would have been much greater if Burgess and/or Ellis weren’t around, for sure.


Two, the Raiders entered Monday with 87 players on their roster. They can’t have more than 80 when training camp opens July 29 in Napa, Calif.

Last night, Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder won the 2009 Major League Baseball Home Run Derby on ESPN.

He defeated Nelson Cruz of the Texas Rangers, Ryan Howard of the Philadelphia Phillies, Albert Pujols of the St. Louis Cardinals, Carlos Pena of the Tampa Bay Rays, Joe Mauer of the Minnesota Twins, Adrian Gonzalez of the San Diego Padres and Brandon Inge of the Detroit Tigers. Congratulations, Prince, you were my pick.

 I saw this advertisement last night. I just thought that I'd post it. The ad was towards the bottom of ESPN.com.
