On today's Current Sports with Al Martin we dive into two big trades coming out of the world of the MLB and NBA. It looks as though Manny Machado will be headed to the LA Dodgers and Kawhi Leonard will be packing his bags and moving to Toronto to play for the Raptors. Al discusses the winners and losers of both trades, and elaborates on why the ratings of last night's MLB All-Star game were lackluster. 

Next, Al plays a piece from NPR center on Jamaican track star Usain Bolt trying out for an Austrailian soccer club. We preview the crossover athlete and the various failures and success of them in the world of sports. That, and more!
