  • Target Leaving IndyCar After 27 Seasons With Chip Ganassi

    Target will leave IndyCar at the end of this season after 27 years with Chip Ganassi Racing that included 11 championships and four Indianapolis 500 victories. The exit comes as Target is examining all of its marketing platforms under new chairman Brian Cornell. Target is also the primary sponsor of Kyle Larson in NASCAR's top Sprint Cup Series and will return to his car in 2017. Target's relationship with Ganassi is one of the longest in any racing series, and the retail giant was a key player in helping Ganassi build his organization. Target not only sponsored Ganassi's first car as a team owner, it eventually became a partner as the Ganassi team grew to one of the top two players in open wheel

  • Tom Wilhelmsen kicks all of the Pirates out of his bar after they refuse to pay tab

    Baseball, like all sports, is a team game. Baseball, like other sports, can sometimes be taken over by just one player who wills their squad to victory. For the Seattle Mariners, for so many years, that player was Felix Hernandez, who would put the team on his back and try and drag them kicking and screaming to a 1-0 victory. Saying Happy Felix Day doesn’t ring necessarily as loudly and as enthusiastically as it once used to. Don’t get me wrong, I still love seeing the King take the mound, but he is a different King this year. And from the get go of the game, it looked like he was going to be a bad king who needs to be overthrown. The Pirates jumped out to a quick and tidy three run lead in the

  • 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

  • Yoenis Cespedes caught a fly ball with his barehand for a fantastic recovery

    Yoenis Cespedes turned a potential embarrassing outfield mishap into an impressive display of hand-eye coordination. He deserves to be recognized for that. During the sixth inning of Tuesday’s game against the Cardinals, Randal Grichuk hit a fly ball to left-center field. There seemed to be some miscommunication between Mets center fielder Michael Conforto and Cespedes. Conforto let the ball fly by him as it hit off a running Cespedes’ glove. Cespedes managed to make the catch not with his glove, but instead, he did so with his barehand off a bobble. That catch’s degree of difficulty cannot be emphasized enough. For Cespedes to be able to focus on the baseball as Conforto ran by and to catch

    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.

    CHICAGO — Star closer Aroldis Chapman joined the Cubs on Tuesday, arriving to a mixed reaction in Chicago and saying he couldn’t remember what management told him about off-field expectations and behavior. After Chapman’s awkward introductory news conference, Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein insisted Chapman understands what the Cubs expect of him after an offseason domestic violence incident. When the Cubs announced the trade with the New York Yankees on Monday, the team released a statement from Chairman Tom Ricketts saying they were aware of his 29-game suspension to begin the season under Major League Baseball’s new domestic violence policy.

    An early disappointment for Rory McIlroy at the 2016 PGA Championship, but thankfully for him, it was all in good fun. Arriving on the tee ahead of the competition’s annual long drive contest early on Tuesday, Rory smashed a 345 drive that looked a virtual certainty to win the contest. Indeed, he was leading for most of the day. But then a dramatic twist to the story. More than six hours later, South Korean player An Byeong Hun snuck a drive 347 yards — just two yards past McIlroy’s — to snatch the prize from Rory’s hands in the final moments. Tough break. Rory spoke to ESPN about it afterwards: “I’m a little bit gutted,” McIlroy said with a smile. “That would have been a mini victory this week

  • 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.

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.

    Cheered all night long by his basketball-crazed new fan base, Kevin Durant knocked down a 3-pointer on the Americans’ first touch and slammed home a dunk the very next time down the floor. What a performance for Golden State’s latest big star to help lead the U.S. Olympic team past China 107-57 on Tuesday night for a third dominant victory in as many exhibition games. Durant, who finalized his two-year contract with the Warriors on July 8, scored all 13 of his points during a 13 1/2-minute span of the first half while playing his first game at his new home, Oracle Arena. Booed in Los Angeles a couple days back, Durant received a far more friendly reception in the Bay Area he will now call home.

  • Jose Reyes used until he broke, giving shot to Mets’ hottest hitter

    Jose Reyes was never indestructible, even when he was in his prime. So it seemed like the Mets might be asking for trouble by playing the 33-year-old every game after calling him up from the minors this month. On Tuesday, in his last at-bat of the Mets’ 3-2 loss to St. Louis in the first game of a doubleheader at Citi Field, Reyes suffered a Grade 1 left intercostal strain. The injury left Reyes unavailable for the second game, a 3-2 victory, and figures to sideline him for at least a few days, according to manager Terry Collins. Wilmer Flores started at third in the nightcap against lefty Jaime Garcia and had three hits. Collins anticipates that Flores will fill in for Reyes. “He’s done a great

  • With chilling history, Baltusrol is one of America's great courses

    On a chilly February night in 1831, Baltus Roll, a farmer who led a quiet life alongside his wife, Susanna, was murdered by two men seeking a rumored buried treasure. Billed by the New York newspapers as the “Crime of the Century,” the alleged killers, Peter Davis and Lycidias Baldwin, never found any lucrative cache as they ransacked the cottage and hogtied and strangled Roll to death. Fifty years later, Louis Keller, publisher of the New York Social Register, purchased the rolling farmland in the hills 20 miles west of Manhattan and established the fifth-oldest golf club in the U.S. Honoring the man who once farmed the land, Keller joined the names of Baltus Roll and thus fabled Baltusrol Golf Club came to be. Against that chilling backdrop — Roll’s tombstone rests five miles from the clubhouse and reads in addition to his name, “Murdered,” — the 98th PGA Championship begins Thursday on the Lower Course.
