  • 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

  • Chapman has trouble remembering convo with Cubs management about off-field behavior

    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. Ricketts said he and Epstein

  • Aaron Rodgers reveals the true meaning of Peyton Manning's 'Omaha' call

    Thanks to Aaron Rodgers, the mystery of Peyton Manning's 'Omaha' call has finally been solved. For years, football fans everywhere have tried to solve the riddle of the 'Omaha' call, only to come up empty. The frustration has finally come to an end though because Rodgers spilled the beans during a recent appearance on the HBO show Any Given Wednesday. During the interview, host Bill Simmons asked Rodgers who he tries to emulate at the quarterback position. The Packers quarterback mentioned that he'll occasionally watch film on guys like Manning, Drew Brees, and Tom Brady. During an extra segment after the show, Rodgers went into even more detail on what he likes about Manning "I like watching

  • The Tim Lincecum experiment is the most depressing story in baseball

    I’m not sure exactly when I started hoping the Giants would sign Tim Lincecum. Maybe it was when Jake Peavy was lit up by the Mets, or maybe it was when he couldn’t get out of the second inning against the Cubs. Maybe it was when Matt Cain got hurt, with the Giants resorting to Albert Suarez, a spring afterthought. But I was on board. My exact words might have been, "Can’t hurt!" Those words were not accurate. Lincecum is officially the saddest story in baseball right now. After allowing one run in six innings for his first start, Lincecum has thrown 24 innings over six starts, allowing 50 hits, nine home runs, and 30 runs. That’s not a typo — more than two hits per inning and about a home run

    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.

  • Chris Sale doesn’t regret protesting wearing White Sox retro uniform

    White Sox ace Chris Sale was scratched from Saturday night’s start against the Tigers due to a confrontation he had with White Sox coaches and front office staff over the 1976 retro uniforms the club was to wear. 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. The lefty apologized to fans who came to see him pitch and said he regrets “not being there for my guys,” referring to the bullpen, which had to cover

It happened with Vince Carter back in 2000 when he jumped over Frederic Weis in the Sydney Olympics. While this wasn't as competitive or as high stakes as an actual Olympic game, the friendly exhibition between Team USA and China nearly became the stage for one of the biggest basketball highlights ever.

  • 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

  • Panthers aren't No. 1 in USA Today's power rankings

    For a team that has such little turnover this offseason, plenty of media outlets sure aren’t giving them the benefit of the doubt. Add to that USA Today Sports’ power rankings list, putting the Panthers at No. 3. “CB Josh Norman’s departure shouldn’t detract from what remains a formidable defense. Cam Newton can’t be asked to shoulder as much as he did last season.” The complaint here is that even they know Josh Norman departure shouldn’t really hurt the Panthers much at all. Yet, the team that went 15-1 in the regular season and stomped on every foe on the way to Super Bowl 50 with little turnover afterwards is ranked below the New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals?
