  • Sammy Sosa won't reunite with the Cubs during the World Series

    Reaching the World Series is the ideal time for a franchise to celebrate and reflect on its tremendous history. As everyone knows, the team hasn’t reached the World Series since 1945. One player who won’t be included in any of that is former outfielder Sammy Sosa.

  • Bills say if Patriots run through their pregame drills again there will be another fight

    The first time the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills played each other this year, the most memorable highlight might have been a pregame skirmish. The Bills are promising more fireworks if the Patriots don’t show more respect for their pregame warmups. Football doesn’t have a ton of unwritten rules, but one is that you don’t run through the other team’s warmup drills before the game.

  • Video: Cam Talbot was very angry with T.J. Oshie

    Cam Talbot had another strong game for the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night by stopping 34 of the 35 Washington Capitals shots he faced in a 4-1 win, improving his season save percentage to a robust .927. Along with backstopping the Oilers to their sixth win in seven games to open the season, the team’s best start since a guy by the name of Wayne Gretzky played for them, he was also involved in some rough stuff in the second period when he went old school on Capitals forward T.J. Oshie for charging into his crease and cross-checking him. Talbot’s response (as seen in the video above) was an attempt to feed Oshie his blocker pad. The end result of that exchange was Oshie getting a two-minute

  • The Cubs were so bad in Game 1 that Cleveland police are worried

    The Chicago Cubs turned in a disappointing performance during their 6-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians in Game 1 of the World Series. Corey Kluber and the Indians’ big, bad bullpen completely dominated Chicago’s bats, giving up just seven hits over nine shutout innings. While that would normally be good news to the people of Cleveland, one local group seemed a bit concerned about the Cubs’ offensive struggles in Game 1. The Cubs’ bats no-showed so hard that the Cleveland police department tweeted that they filed a missing persons report for them.

  • Manny Pacquiao fights next weekend and no one cares

    Next weekend marks what should be a major fight in boxing in 2016 - the in-ring return of future Hall of Fame legend Manny Pacquiao. Pacquiao last competed in April defeating sort-of rival Timothy Bradley in what was billed as Pacquiao’s retirement fight. Now, just 7 months later he returns. By all accounts, this should be a big deal. But it’s not. At all. We are currently 8 days away from fight time and the hype is at a complete zero. Manny Pacquiao is fighting, and no one cares. How did we get to this point? Let’s take a look at the various factors contributing to this dud in the making: Pacquiao’s star power has been fading. The last Bradley fight did just 400,000 PPV buys, the same as his

  • Did the Minnesota Vikings trade for a notable offensive lineman?

    Fooch’s update: It would appear this is for naught I don’t quite know what to make of this, but Pete Carroll may have said something a bit peculiar during a Wednesday press conference. There was apparently a question about trades, and Carroll said he “say Minnesota made a big move with an offensive lineman.” Here is what one beat writer tweeted about it: It is possible Carroll is BS’ing with the reporters, or he misheard something. I have no real idea, but it is at least something interesting. The Vikings have a need at left tackle, and there have been rumors Joe Staley and Joe Thomas are both on the trade block. Both of their head coaches have denied the rumors, but anything is possible in the

  • NHL on NBCSN: Bruins need a rookie goalie to step up against Rangers

    NBCSN will continue its coverage of the 2016-17 campaign tonight when the New York Rangers host the Boston Bruins at 8:00 p.m. ET. If you want to watch the game online, you can do so here. The Boston Bruins have been without starting goalie Tuukka Rask (lower body) for two games now and things haven’t gone well. When Rask is between the pipes, Boston is 3-0-0, but when he’s not, they’re 0-3-0. They dropped Saturday night’s game to the Montreal Canadiens with Anton Khudobin in goal and with him on the shelf too, the Bruins were dismantled 5-0 by the Minnesota Wild last night. The Bruins turned to former first rounder Malcolm Subban yesterday and he lasted a little more than 30 minutes before being

  • Six more Olympic medalists stripped in Beijing 2008 retests

    LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — Nine more athletes, including six medal winners, were retroactively disqualified from the 2008 Beijing Olympics on Wednesday after failing retests of their doping samples. The International Olympic Committee announced the decisions in the latest sanctions imposed on athletes whose stored samples came back positive after being retested with improved methods. Four athletes were stripped of silver medals and two of bronze medals in weightlifting, wrestling and women’s steeplechase. All six athletes come from former Soviet countries — Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan — and all tested positive for steroids. The IOC stores doping samples for 10 years

  • Column: Should NHRA get with the times to grow sport?

    Drag racing has been one of the biggest motorsport passions of my life. Ever since the first time I went to the now-defunct U.S. 30 Dragstrip in northwest Indiana – with the famous loud and echoing radio liner, “Sunday, Sunday, Sunday, at beautiful U.S. 30 Dragstrip, where the GREAT ONES Runnnnnnn!” – in the early 1970s, I’ve been a big fan of the quarter-mile. (By the way, for those in the Midwest who remember U.S. 30, which closed nearly 30 years ago, efforts are under way to bring it back. But I digress.) As a reporter, I’ve covered drag racing since the early 1980s. I still get as excited today following the sport as I did back then. But … and you probably figured a but was coming. While

  • Alex Rodriguez is taking his analyst role quite seriously

    If you’ve happened to catch any of the coverage of the 2016 postseason on Fox and FS1, you’ve heard former Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez as part of an analyst panel with host Kevin Burkhardt and former major leaguers Pete Rose and Frank Thomas. Rodriguez has drawn rave reviews not just for passing a rather low bar we set for former athletes-turned-commentators, but because he’s adding real insight drawn both from his playing days and from doing research. Indeed, Rodriguez is taking his new job as an analyst quite seriously, Newsday’s Neil Best reports. Bardia Shah-Rais, the VP of production for Fox, said of Rodriguez, “This is not a hobby for him. It’s not a parachute in. He’s invested. If we have

  • The Oilers are off to their best start since the Gretzky era

    The Edmonton Oilers just keep on winning. Thanks to their 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night, the Oilers are now 6-1-0 through their first seven games, have the best record in the Western Conference, and the second best record in the NHL behind only the Montreal Canadiens. To find the last time the Oilers won six of their first seven games, you have to go all the way back to the 1985-86 season when Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Jari Kurri, and Paul Coffey still played for them and their dynasty was just starting to take shape. Their best start since then was a 5-1-1 start during the 2000-01 season. The recipe on Wednesday was similar to the one we have seen from the Oilers
