  • Five drivers avoid Hungary grid drops over 107% rule

    Daniel Ricciardo, Max Verstappen, Nico Hulkenberg, Valtteri Bottas and Sergio Perez have all avoided grid drops for Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix despite failing to lap within 107% of the fastest time in Q1. During qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix on Saturday, 11 drivers fell outside of the 107% time requied to qualify for the race in a session affected by rain and red flags. Many were unable to post a late lap time while others improved dramatically on intermediate tires, causing laps to reach as much as 118%. All six drivers who were eliminated in Q1 were outside of the required time, as were Ricciardo, Verstappen, Hulkenberg, Bottas and Perez. The latter quintet took part in Q2 as they

  • Have we seen the last of Aroldis Chapman in Yankees pinstripes?

    Aroldis Chapman’s time in The Bronx could soon be coming to an end. While a FOX Sports report said the Yankees were “close to trading” the left-handed closer, a source said nothing was imminent Saturday night following a 2-1, 12-inning loss to the Giants at the Stadium. Still, it appears only a matter of time before the Yankees indeed move Chapman, but that is not necessarily a sign they are going into fire-sale mode. There’s no indication Andrew Miller or Carlos Beltran are on the way anywhere, at least for the time being. With the Aug. 1 non-waiver trade deadline approaching, the Yankees had been counting on making a run during their current homestand that ends Sunday. Instead, they will go

  • DeMar DeRozan didn’t meet with Lakers because he wanted “legacy of my own in Toronto”

    DeMar DeRozan was going to be one of the Lakers’ free agent targets last summer — an All-Star wing who could come home to Los Angeles and slide right into Kobe Bryant‘s now vacant spot in the rotation. But like the Lakers’ other top targets — Kevin Durant, Hassam Whiteside, etc. — the Lakers didn’t even get a meeting. Durant’s reasoning was expected: “I really respect their team. I just thought they were a couple years away from where I wanted to be.” DeRozan went another path — he loves Toronto and wants to carve out a legacy there, as he told Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily recently: “When you have an opportunity to go home, that’s something that certainly would cross your mind.

  • NASCAR to police pit road speeds with expanded timing zones for Xfinity race

    INDIANAPOLIS – NASCAR will employ additional timing zones on pit road for today’s NASCAR Xfinity race and if all goes well, those timing zones will be used in Sunday’s Brickyard 400, NASCAR confirmed to NBC Sports. There will be 12 timing zones along pit road — up from six previously at Indianapolis Motor Speedway — for today’s Xfinity race. There will be a timing zone about every 3.5 pit stalls on average. Those are being added to limit drivers accelerating toward their pit stall and passing cars. That became a bigger issue after NASCAR penalized Martin Truex Jr. for passing Kevin Harvick on pit road during the Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway earlier this month. NASCAR experimented with

  • New York Giants' Damon Harrison: 3-4 to 4-3 transition has been 'seamless'

    When the New York Giants signed defensive tackle Damon Harrison early on in free agency, they knew exactly what they were getting. Harrison had established himself as one of the elite run-stuffing interior linemen in the NFL, which is exactly what they were looking to add alongside fellow defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins. But in addition to switching his locker-room and jersey color, Harrison is also facing a change in defensive systems and philosophies. With the New York Jets, Harrison found a comfort level in the 3-4, but will now have to switch to the 4-3 under defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. No problem, says Harrison. Thus far, the transition has been “seamless.” “The more and more

  • Rosberg edges out Verstappen to lead final Hungary practice

    Nico Rosberg gave Mercedes a clean sweep of practice sessions in Hungary by topping FP3 on Saturday morning, edging out Red Bull’s Max Verstappen by two-thousandths of a second. Rosberg led second practice on Friday afternoon, and spent the majority of the final session at the top of the timesheets as drivers enjoyed the final runs ahead of qualifying later today. A fastest lap of 1:20.261 on the super-soft tire gave Rosberg P1 at the checkered flag, but his advantage was far less comfortable than he would have liked. Red Bull arrived in Hungary expected to run Mercedes close, but failed to match the German marque for pace on Friday. However, Verstappen managed to turn up the wick and produce

  • Report: Las Vegas NHL team asked permission to speak with Capitals assistant GM

    It’s been 10 days since George McPhee was officially announced as general manager of the expansion Las Vegas franchise. Based on a report Friday, it appears he’s looking to possibly add a familiar face from the Washington Capitals to his staff. Building a front office beyond his position is among the top priorities on his list of things to get done, as that franchise prepares for key dates like next year’s expansion draft. There is a long history between McPhee and Mahoney from their days with Washington. Ross Mahoney was hired by McPhee to be the director of amateur scouting for the Caps which he did for 16 seasons before becoming assistant general manager. If you thought the team drafted well

  • deGrom battered in Mets loss to Marlins, presented by W.B. Mason

    Jacob deGrom lasted just 3 2/3 innings and a less-than-dominant Jose Fernandez was still plenty good enough to lead the Marlins past the Mets, 7-2, on Saturday night at Marlins Park. In case you missed it… deGrom (6-5) labored from the start and lasted a season-low 3 2/3 innings while surrendering five runs on 10 hits and a walk. He struck out five and also allowed a moonshot home run off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton, who went 4-for-5 with three RBIs. The Mets took a 2-1 lead off Jose Fernandez in the third after falling behind a half inning earlier. deGrom led off with a double and came home later in the inning on Yoenis Cespedes' bloop single to right.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — DeMarcus Cousins considers the thought, and one of the NBA’s most recognizable scowls quickly turns into a bright smile. Without saying a word, it’s clear he agrees: For the first time under Mike Krzyzewski, the U.S. Olympic basketball team has a genuine offensive weapon in the middle. The Americans might even have the best center in the world. Cousins had 14 points and 15 rebounds in just 16 minutes of the Americans’ exhibition opener, a 111-74 victory over Argentina. The Sacramento Kings star can score inside and out, and gives the U.S. a dimension it hasn’t had while winning the last two gold medals. “DeMarcus is going to be a force in Rio,” teammate Klay Thompson said.

    The P.K. Subban for Shea Weber trade between the Montreal Canadiens and Nashville Predators continues to make waves. On that same late-June day, however, the Edmonton Oilers shocked the hockey world by sending Taylor Hall, who four times in his young career has hit the 20-goal plateau, to New Jersey for right-shot defenseman Adam Larsson, who isn’t likely to be mistaken for a dynamic offensive blue liner. In trading Hall, the Oilers gave up a dynamic forward, although they certainly had a plethora of skilled forwards, and their need to make upgrades to their blue line, made it necessary to part with a player up front. Hall and Jordan Eberle — now his former Oilers teammate — broke into the league with Edmonton in the same year, back in 2010-11.
