  • 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

    While Manchester United and Liverpool have been the clubs grabbing headlines with transfers this summer, Arsene Wenger would like to remind you that: A) There’s plenty of time left in the window. B) Arsenal has a lot of money. C) They did sign Granit Xhaka for big dollars. The Premier League’s longest-tenured manager opened up about the Gunners’ plans to keep looking for the right targets, and said the club is still “very active” and working with a month-and-a-half to go in the window. From Arsenal.com: “We are very active and if we find the right candidates, we will spend the big money. We have already spent big and, until now, nobody has made a bigger transfer than we have in the country. He

  • Why was Kevin Harvick so angry after New Hampshire? It wasn’t because of his pit crew . . .

    Kevin Harvick was seething at his team after Sunday’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, where his No. 4 Chevrolet lost 14 positions on pit stops. “Nothing said after the race had anything to do with the weekend or anything on our pit stops,” Harvick told NBC Sports in a Thursday interview. Crew chief Rodney Childers said Harvick’s frustration after New Hampshire stemmed for a disastrous test for Harvick’s car last week at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Because of an assembly problem at the Stewart-Haas Racing shop, a faulty wire in the fuel cell caused the car’s electronics to go haywire when the crew attempted to start it at Indy, and the team lost three precious hours while painstakingly troubleshooting the problem.

  • 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

  • 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

    Free agent guard Chasson Randle has narrowed his search to a list of three teams, which includes the Knicks, his agent told the New York Post.  Randle, who played with the Knicks in the Summer League, averaged 18.3 points and five assists per game.  "We're in discussions with the Knicks, and he's narrowed it down to two other teams,'' agent Kevin Bradbury told Marc Berman of the New York Post. "For a young guy, it's all about situations. He's trying to figure out what's the best fit and how he'd work with the Knicks." In four years at Stanford, Randle averaged 16.5 points per game and shot 42.8 percent from the field. He became the school's all-time leading scorer during his final season.  Keith

Dallas is signing Nowitzki to a larger-than-expected two-year, $50 million contract, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. The Dallas Mavericks and face of the franchise Dirk Nowitzki have finalized their expected new deal with another bump in pay that sets the star forward up to earn $50 million over the next two seasons and play until age 40, league sources told ESPN.

  • Eberle: ‘We haven’t made the playoffs … and something needed to change’

    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.

  • 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.
