  • Rosberg called before stewards over Hungary pole lap

    Nico Rosberg has been called to see the FIA race stewards over his pole position lap during qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix on Saturday. Rosberg’s final Q3 lap saw him edge out Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton for pole position by 0.143 seconds, but was partially completed under double-waved yellow flags shown following a spin for Fernando Alonso. Rosberg was adamant after the session that he lifted enough, and the stewards did not initially investigate it. However, over three-and-a-half hours after qualifying was completed, Rosberg has now been called in over a possible failure to slow for yellow flags during his Q3 lap. Rosberg will meet with the stewards at 19:45 local time in Hungary

  • White Sox ace Chris Sale scratched for ‘clubhouse incident’

    “The incident, which was non-physical in nature, currently is under further investigation by the club,” general manager Rick Hahn said in a statement. The White Sox clubhouse was open to reporters for only 20 minutes before it was closed for a team meeting before the game. Manager Robin Ventura did not discuss the incident later in his pregame availability. Right-hander Matt Albers started in Sale’s place and the White Sox planned to use multiple relievers.

  • DeMarcus Cousins looks to make most of chance with US basketball team

    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.

  • Texas Rangers trade rumors: Joey Gallo the price for Tampa Bay pitcher

    Texas Rangers trade rumors:  Joey Gallo is the Tampa Bay Rays desired return -- or at least primary piece of a return -- in a deal for Jake Odorizzi or Matt Moore, while the Rangers won't part with Gallo unless they are getting Chris Archer, According to Evan Grant. Evan says the ChiSox talk isn't going anywhere and so the Rangers and Rays have re-engaged, with the teams continuing to see if a deal can be reached, while each waits and sees if the other will blink.  I don't see Odorizzi or Moore being worth parting with Gallo, although Evan seems to suggest that the shallow pitching market over the next year or two may make it worthwhile (though that may also reflect skepticism on Evan's part

Of course, Heyman also reports that the Giants are more focused on relievers. He also throws out there that the Dodgers are "aiming ever higher" and mentions Rays starters and ... Chris Sale. I'm still not buying Sale being traded (the wording there sounds hilarious given

  • 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

The violations occurred when the Eagles played an ineligible athlete in three games over those seasons. The wins came against Savannah State and St. Francis in 2013 and Louisiana-Monroe in 2014. Georgia Southern’s 2014 Sun Belt championship will not be impacted by the ruling. “While it is disappointing to vacate these three victories, we get to put this chapter behind us,” Georgia Southern AD Tom Kleinlein said in a statement. “The student-athletes on this year’s football team, and teams moving forward, are not affected by the NCAA’s ruling

Signing someone for signings sake makes no sense in the era of Financial Fair Play and with Fabio Coentrão and Alvaro Morata returning, it may well be that the European Champions' major business is done. This is perhaps a relief to the fringe contingent of the squad with James Rodriguez and Isco both having had uncertain futures earlier in the summer.

It is the only time the two teams are scheduled to play during Big Ten season and Penn’s home gym will offer a unique setting for the game.

Things really heated up with talks of moving next to the New York Mets with a new arena in Queens, but apparently that’s not all. New York Newsday reports that the Islanders have met “several times” with the New York Racing Association to build a new arena in Belmont. This would mean that the Islanders would (wait for it) bring the team back to the Nassau area. It was emphasized that such talks were in early stages and that the ownership group is “weighing multiple options, including remaining in Brooklyn.” When it came to the rumors

  • 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.

  • DeMarcus Cousins: All-NBA voting ‘absurd,’ ‘joke,’ ‘popularity contest’

    DeMarcus Cousins was the only All-NBA player on a lottery team this year. The Kings center made the second team behind DeAndre Jordan. Credit voters for seeing past Sacramento’s dismal record and recognizing Cousins’ individual excellence. He has only so much power, and it would’ve been unfair to disqualify him due to his subpar teammates and coaching. Cousins’ voting breakdown: First team: 32 Second team: 28 Third team: 33 Not on ballot: 33 I wouldn’t have picked Cousins for an All-NBA team, but this struck me as voters being open-minded about an unconventional candidate — one from a losing team.
