LASH Morning Drive: Tuesday, July 15

The Morning Drive offers you a healthy dose of LA sports talk from around the internet. A most excellent way to wake up feeling smart.

In today’s morning drive Yasiel flops rather than flip bats, Baron Davis wants to call it a comeback and Alex Rodriguez has more legal problems. Happy Tuesday, Los Angeles. You deserve it.
