  • VIDEO: Worst own goal ever from Minnesota United goalkeeper?

    This is unfortunate. During Bournemouth’s 4-0 friendly win over Minnesota United on Wednesday goalkeeper Sammy Ndjock had a moment of madness. It surely has to be one of the worst, if not the worst, own goals of all-time. For some reason as he goes to throw the ball out, the ball gets stuck to his glove and he throws it behind him and into the empty net. Cameroon international Ndjock, 26, tried to rescue the situation but only ended up in the back of the net with the ball. It was a horrible moment for the goalkeeper who, along with Minnesota United, is due to arrive in Major League Soccer for either the 2017 or 2018 season. See the video of the crazy own goal below as I’m sure we will be seeing

  • Matt Holliday exits game after being hit in the face by a pitch

    Matt Holliday was hit in the face by a 95 MPH Andrew Cashner fastball during the sixth inning of Thursday night’s game at Busch Stadium. As ESPN Mark Saxon explains, Holliday tried to stay in the game, but he was ultimately replaced with pinch-runner Mike Leake. Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune notes that Holliday had a bloody nose. I won’t embed it, but you can click here to see the video if you are so inclined. From what’s been reported, it doesn’t sound like it’s serious for Holliday, but it’s good that the Cardinals played it safe with their veteran outfielder. We should know more about his condition after the game. Holliday went 0-for-2 prior to getting hit with Cashner’s fastball.

    My weekly allowance was $3, and packs of Upper Deck baseball cards, the coolest things I’d ever seen, with their impossibly white borders and holograms on the back – holograms! – were $2 apiece, so I’d resigned myself to one. Ken, the mustachioed man who ran the place and a couple years earlier sold me my first baseball cards, said he’d give me two for $3. Baseball cards were the first drug I ever tried, and they hooked me immediately.

  • Jose Mourinho laid back on Paul Pogba transfer to Manchester United

    Jose Mourinho is playing it cool when it comes to Paul Pogba and the rampant speculation about him joining Manchester United. Multiple reports say Pogba, 23, has told Juventus he wants to leave and now the two clubs are haggling over a price. Yesterday it was reported that United offered $113 million up front and an extra $18 million in add-ons but Juve rejected that offer and want $131 million up front with an extra $12 million in add-ons. If that’s the case then Pogba would become the most expensive player in history if he returned to United, the club he left in 2012 for a $1.2 million compensation fee. Mourinho, speaking at a press conference on United’s tour of China, was coy on Pogba signing

  • Could the Yankees release Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira?

    The Yankees, at 48-46, are waffling between considering themselves buyers or sellers heading into the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline. Part of the reason the club hasn’t performed better is because first baseman Mark Teixiera and DH Alex Rodriguez have both been underwhelming offensively. Rodriguez has a .640 OPS and his playing time was reduced recently, limiting him to left-handed starters. Teixeira, who missed some time last month with a knee injury, has a .591 OPS. Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckleball reports that some in the Yankees’ organization have discussed, in the event the club decides to commit to selling, whether or not to simply release Rodriguez and Teixeira.

  • Islanders planning Brooklyn escape to Queens: Report

    Are the New York Islanders planning their escape from Barclays Center? The Islanders are in talks with the Wilpon family, owners of the New York Mets, about building an arena adjacent to Citi Field in Queens, according to sports columnist Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg News, who is the first mainstream source to report rumors that have been kicking around New York recently. Willets Point is emerging as a persuasive alternative to the team’s current home at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center if the Islanders’ owners and arena officials can’t agree on a series of hockey-specific improvements, said the people, who asked for anonymity because the negotiations are private.

  • After a 10-year pro career, Ryan O’Byrne is going back to school

    Ryan O’Byrne’s professional hockey career has officially come to an end. The 32-year-old made the announcement via his Twitter account earlier today. O’Byrne’s professional career lasted a total of 10 years. In the NHL, he played for the Montreal Canadiens, Colorado Avalanche and Toronto Maple Leafs. He also played for the Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL), Florida Everblades (ECHL), Prague Lev (KHL), Ambri-Piotta (Swiss-A) and HV71 Jonkoping. In 308 NHL games, O’Byrne had five goals, 39 points and 369 penalty minutes.

Jon Heyman relayed the news in his latest column for Today’s Knuckleball, and although he did mention that the Braves are still taking calls on their top pitcher, they still aren’t budging on their steep price. Additionally, Heyman mentioned that the Braves are also battling perception problems as well. Teheran would be a major trade chip. But the Braves still won’t hear of it. “We have no intention of trading him,” a Braves official said for the third straight week. Braves higher-ups

  • Yasiel Puig leaves the Dodgers-Nats game with an apparent injury

    Great timing, Yasiel. Yasiel Puig was removed from this afternoon’s game against the Nationals with an apparent hamstring injury. Puig was trying to leg out a grounder in the top of the seventh inning but was seen to “crow hop” as he crossed the bag and then went directly into the visitor’s tunnel. Scott Van Slyke took over in right field in the bottom of the seventh. Puig has been subject to trade rumors of late, with the Dodgers said to both be considering moving him and looking to make a big splash of some sort at the trade deadline, possibly for a top-end starting pitcher. Obviously those two things could go together, with Puig being sent in a package for said pitcher. But not if he’s hurt

  • Buster Olney comes up with nine ideas to “improve” baseball. They’re mostly bad.

    Buster Olney and the Mike & Mike radio crew at ESPN did a little thought experiment about how to improve baseball. It was partially audience-sourced and the entire idea was based on something ESPN did about the NFL last week. They came up with nine suggestions to improve the game. Given that (a) baseball is fine; (b) Mike and Mike is a talk radio show that spends far more time dealing with football than baseball; and (c) fan-sourcing anything is going to be a dicey proposition, especially when a huge number of those fans are football fans who dig talk radio, you can imagine the quality of these ideas. Short version: they ain’t that great. A rundown. 1. Reduce games to seven innings This is bad

  • Which NHL goal scorers were luckiest this season? (Trending Topics)

    A shot from Alex Ovechkin from x location in a high-danger area has a greater chance of going in than one from Zac Rinaldo or even Lee Stempniak. With this in mind, we can reasonably extrapolate that guys like Patrick Kane, who led the league in points and finished second in goals only behind Ovechkin are generally going to appear to be more “lucky” than the average NHLer when their stats are viewed without context. What that basically means is that Kane had a shooting percentage of 16 percent in all situations last year, nearly doubling the NHL average of 8.5 percent.
