  • Post Positions & Odds For Sunday's Haskell, A Kentucky Derby Rematch

    Nearly always an exceptional race, this year’s Grade I, $1 million Haskell Invitational got a boost on Wednesday when trainer Keith Desormeaux announced that Preakness winner Exaggerator would ship to Monmouth Park to run instead of staying at Saratoga to run in the Grade II, $600,000 Jim Dandy. Trainer Bob Baffert has won the race eight times and five times in the last six years, including last year with American Pharoah. Used to being the favorite, this year he’s the third choice behind the Kentucky Derby and Belmont winners. Exaggerator’s appearance means that the top three finishers in this year’s Kentucky Derby face off again: Nyquist, Exaggerator, and Gun Runner respectively. Exaggerator

  • Mike Krzyzewski: Team USA having too much fun, needs to tone it down

    Mike Krzyzewski hates fun (even more than he admits). So, the coach wasn’t thrilled after Team USA’s exhibition win over China, which included DeMar DeRozan nearly 360-degree dunking on someone. Marc J. Spears of ESPN: I want to see Team USA make highlight plays. Dunk from the free-throw line. Shoot from halfcourt. Throw behind-the-back passes. Show up weaker competition. So, it’s hard for me to get behind Coach K’s criticism. But I also want to see the Americans win gold medals in the Olympics, and I’ll blame Krzyzewski if they’re not adequately focused. Fair? Not one bit. Doesn’t change what I want, though.

  • A Tour pro charged for clubs? And can't pay?

    SPRINGFIELD, N.J. – Rich Beem opened with a 1-under 69 on Thursday at the PGA Championship, his first under-par round on the PGA Tour since 2012. As good as that moment was for the 45-year-old, his week didn’t start that well. Beem, who won the 2002 PGA Championship, rarely plays on Tour and spends his time now working as an analyst for Sky Sports. As he readied for his start at Baltusrol he reached out to Matt Rollins, the Tour rep for Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG), to order a set of the company’s clubs. He was charged $2,800. That’s when things became a little uncomfortable. PGA Championship: Full-field scores | Live blog: Day 1 | Photo gallery “He gave me a bill, he tried to run my credit card

  • Here's Karl-Anthony Towns dunking on all the children

    In 2005, my friends and I took great interest in a McSweeney’s article titled “A Realistic Assessment of How Many 12-Year-Olds I Could Beat Up Before They Overtook Me.” It is exactly what it sounds like — author Matt Schweiger investigates how he, a 21-year-old of fairly average size, would do in a fight against an ever-growing number of pre-teen boys. Minnesota Timberwolves center and reigning Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns is apparently trying to test his own version of this game. Honestly, they should just turn the camp into a full-on experiment to see how many kids Towns can take on.

  • NASCAR issues warnings to five Sprint Cup teams

    Five Sprint Cup teams were given warnings Wednesday for inspection failures last weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. For failing the laser inspection station twice in prerace, NASCAR warned the No. 5 Chevrolet of Kasey Kahne, the No. 27 Chevrolet of Paul Menard and the No. 83 Toyota of Matt DiBenedetto. It’s the fourth warning this season for DiBenedetto’s car, which means the team would lose pit selection for Sunday’s race at Pocono Raceway. It’s the first warning for Kahne and third for Menard. NASCAR also issued warnings because the No. 41 Chevrolet of Kurt Busch and the No. 43 Ford of Aric Almirola failed template inspection twice before qualifying.

  • Andrea Bargnani is heading to Spain, and this is probably the end

    Free-agent big man Andrea Bargnani will return to Europe, signing a two-year deal with Saski Baskonia of Spain’s ACB — widely acknowledged as the second-best professional hoops league in the world — that, more than likely, spells the end of the NBA road for the former No. 1 overall draft pick. The 7-footer entered the NBA in 2006 after spending the first four years of his professional career in his native Italy, showcasing a sharpshooting touch from beyond the 3-point arc that helped Benetton Treviso win the 2006 Serie A title and earned him designation as the Euroleague’s 2005-06 Rising Star, an honor given to the top 22-and-under performer in the continental competition. Bargnani acquitted himself pretty admirably in his first few years in Toronto, offering scoring punch and an outside shooting threat on teams led by Chris Bosh and the T.J. Ford/Jose Calderon point guard combination that hung around the middle of the Eastern Conference pack.

Brandon Nimmo is on his way back from Triple-A Las Vegas and is expected to take Lagares' spot on the roster. Lagares already missed a month due to the thumb injury, which he suffered trying to make a diving catch back on June 4, and it has continued to nag him since his return earlier in July. A timetable for his recovery from surgery is uncertain but it's the type of procedure that could very well knock Lagares out for the remainder of the season.
