• Chris Sale doesn’t regret protesting wearing White Sox retro uniform

    White Sox ace Chris Sale was scratched from Saturday night’s start against the Tigers due to a confrontation he had with White Sox coaches and front office staff over the 1976 retro uniforms the club was to wear. Sale used a knife to cut up his uniform as well as the uniforms of some other players, protesting the club’s decision to wear them. The White Sox suspended Sale five games “for violating team rules, for insubordination, and for destroying team equipment.” Sale spoke about the incident for the first time, as MLB.com’s Scott Merkin reports. The lefty apologized to fans who came to see him pitch and said he regrets “not being there for my guys,” referring to the bullpen, which had to cover

  • Lawsuit: Baylor players gang raped student, school knew

    The allegations against Baylor University and its football program continue to get uglier by the day. Most recently, a woman who has filed a lawsuit against the school is claiming several players gang raped a fellow student in 2011. Jasmin Hernandez, a former Baylor student who was raped by a football player in 2012, filed a lawsuit in March against the university, former athletic director Ian McCaw and former head football coach Art Briles for failing to comply with Title IX law. The suit was amended last week and a woman identified as “Jane Roe 4” was added. A portion of the amendment reads as follows, according to Suzanne Halliburton of the Austin American-Statesman: Plaintiff is informed,

    Rudy Gay has come up again and again in trade rumors. The Kings forward doesn’t seem thrilled with that. Gay, in a Q&A with Blake Ellington of Sactown Royalty: You mentioned people are wondering if you are going to be here next season. I imagine you are like most of the guys in the league and try not to pay attention to that stuff, but do you pay attention to trade rumors and does it bother you? I mean it’s been pretty loud as of late so it’s hard not to pay attention to it.

  • Report: Athletes at Rio Olympics 'will literally be swimming in human crap'

    Seven years ago the Rio de Janeiro government promised to clean up the water before the 2016 Olympics. Not only did they fail to clean it up -- it has actually gotten worse. According to the New York Times, recent tests by government and independent scientists have found the city's waters to be full of diarrhea-causing rotaviruses and drug-resistant "super bacteria," among other pathogens. This is the same water in which Olympians will sail, windsurf and -- yes -- swim starting on Aug. 5. "Foreign athletes will literally be swimming in human crap, and they risk getting sick from all those microorganisms," local pediatrician Dr. Daniel Becker told the Times. "It's sad, but also worrisome." The

  • Video: Adrian Beltre belts a walk-off home run on Monday against the Athletics

    The Rangers found themselves in a 5-1 hole after three innings against the Athletics on Monday, but scratched out some runs in the middle innings. That allowed them to enter the bottom of the ninth inning trailing by only one run, 6-5, facing A’s closer Ryan Madson. Adrian Beltre, who hit a solo home run in the seventh inning, stepped to the plate with a runner on first base and two outs. He was the Rangers’ last hope to keep the game alive. The veteran third baseman swung at Madson’s first pitch, a 96 MPH fastball, and drilled it to left-center field for a walk-off two-run home run. Beltre now has nine walk-off home runs in his career. While the 37-year-old isn’t quite the offensive dynamo he

  • Reserve Ohio State DL Dylan Thompson academically ineligible for the fall

    “Do something. And underline that. Do something.” Those were the words of Urban Meyer back in May when discussing the status of Dylan Thompson with his Ohio State football program.  Fastforward two months, and Thompson did indeed do something, albeit it’s a something that’s not even remotely positive. At the Big Ten Media Days Tuesday, the OSU head coach announced that Thompson is academically ineligible for the fall semester.  That means the defensive lineman likely won’t play at all in 2016, and it could mean it’s the end of the road for the player in Columbus. Thompson came to the Buckeyes as a three-star 2014 signee, rated as the No. 21 strongside defensive end in the country and the No.

We are very honored that he made the commitment to come to South Florida and sign with us. Dion is young, athletic and explosive, which fits in with our roster.

    The Nationals took a 6-4 lead into the bottom of the ninth inning at Progressive Field on Tuesday night against the Indians, but Jonathan Papelbon couldn’t hold on. Gio Gonzalez put together 6 1/3 solid innings, ultimately yielding three runs (two earned) on five hits and a pair of walks with four strikeouts. Even better, the Nats’ offense chased Indians starter and AL All-Star Danny Salazar after four innings. Papelbon walked Jose Ramirez to kick off the bottom half of the ninth, then served up an RBI double to Tyler Naquin to make it a 6-5 game. Chris Gimenez moved Naquin to third base with a sacrifice bunt, but first baseman Ryan Zimmerman‘s throw to second baseman Daniel Murphy went wide,
