Sportsman of the Week Ending 8/18/2013

It's the dog days of summer, and that means baseball.  This week's Sportsman is a veteran of the game, and put up historic numbers for a historic franchise.  New York Yankees LF Alfonso Soriano was on watch all week for breaking RBI records by series of games, all the while leading his team to a 5-2 record.  But as for his numbers, a video game worthy 15-31, 5 HR, 18 RBI.  Amazingly, he was 0-9 in the first and last game of the week, putting him at 15-22 during the Tuesday through Saturday span.  His effort has put the Yankees back in the thick of the playoff race and secured him a tab as Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
