  • Vettel ‘expected a bit more’ than fourth in Hungary

    Sebastian Vettel says Ferrari “expected a bit more” than fourth place in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix as Red Bull moved to within a point of the Italian marque in the Formula 1 constructors’ championship. Vettel claimed his second race win for Ferrari in Hungary last year, but was left to settle for P4 this time around after failing to pass Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo for third in the closing stages. The result extended Ferrari’s winless run in 2016, and allowed Red Bull to pull up just a point behind in the constructors’ championship. When asked by NBCSN if Ferrari now how to admit it was in a battle for second, Vettel said: “We never denied it! We have to fight Red Bull. “Our target is always

  • The Rangers are expecting a better Kevin Hayes next season

    While speaking about Kevin Hayes on a conference call, Jeff Gorton said that he expects Hayes to come into this season with a chip on his shoulder and "play really well." Gorton said that Hayes is a 6-5 center who has shown at times "how good he can be in this league." He said that Hayes' second year was similar in some ways to a lot of players who have a good first year and struggle the next year to meet expectations. Alain Vigneault said after the season that Hayes is part of the Rangers future but needs to step up. It's been said that Hayes is someone who needs to engage more on a consistent basis.

  • Watch highlights of USA’s 111-74 rout of Argentina in exhibition game

    Argentina isn’t considered a medal contender heading into the Rio Olympics. Their golden generation — led by Manu Ginobili — has picked up a lot of speed on the downhill side of their careers at this point. They didn’t provide much of a challenge for Team USA in an exhibition game Friday night in Las Vegas, one won by the USA 111-74. Kevin Durant impressed playing with his new teammates in dropping 23 points, Paul George had 18, and the Americans had their way in the game. Which is what we’re going to see a lot of in Rio — the USA’s talent level is just steps above any other team in the tournament.

  • Georgia Southern vacates three wins from 2013-14 seasons

    Georgia Southern has vacated three wins from the 2013-14 seasons stemming from a two-year investigation into its football program, the school has announced. 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

    The New York Islanders’ new owners claim that Brooklyn’s Barclays Center is “our home,” yet there are all kinds of rumors going around about where they may settle. 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

    Carl Edwards, Brad Keselowski, Danica Patrick, Ryan Newman and Ryan Blaney were involved in a late wreck on Lap 154 in Sunday’s Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Edwards suffered the worst damage; his car was unrepairable, bringing his race to a disappointing finish after he had challenged for the lead for a good portion of it. Here’s what Edwards had to say about the incident: “It felt like I just got tight. Got down there, and whoever was on the outside of me. If indeed that’s what happened, I apologize. That’s pretty frustrating. I don’t know if I came down or they came up, but it felt like I got in there and scrubbed that right front. I was having a lot of trouble

  • Report: Celtics agree to guaranteed contract with Demetrius Jackson, partially guaranteed deal with Ben Bentil

    The Celtics are slowly but surely taking care of their eight (!) 2016 draft picks. They’ll sign No. 3 pick Jaylen Brown. No. 16 pick Guerschon Yabusele and No. 23 pick Ante Zizic will remain overseas. The Nos. 31 and 35 picks were traded for a future first-rounder on draft night. And Boston has reached terms with No. 45 pick Demetrius Jackson and No. 51 pick Ben Bentil. Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe: As second-rounders, neither Jackson nor Bentil count against the cap until signed. So, the Celtics — with a little cap space plus the room exception and minimum-salary exceptions available — might wait a while to officially sign either player. Jackson would give Boston 16 players — one more

    Much has been made of the Eagles' quarterback situation this offseason, particularly Sam Bradford's feelings after Philadelphia spent the second overall pick on Carson Wentz.  One other name in the mix is a former 49ers passer in McLeod Bethel-Thompson, who is reportedly set to re-sign with the team, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.  The 28-year-old quarterback and Sacramento State product entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the 49ers in 2011 under Jim Harbaugh.  Bethel-Thompson had three stints with San Francisco, staying on as a third-stringer and practice squad quarterback.  Other teams in the NFL he's played for include the Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots.

This weekend at Yankee Stadium, temperatures reached the upper 90s with the usual East Coast humidity. Every player on the field was a Sultan of Sweat.
