  • What Sprint Cup drivers said after the Chase race at Talladega

    Joey Logano won the Hellmann’s 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, advancing to the Round of 8 in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Here’s what the field of drivers had to say about their results at Talladega: JOEY LOGANO – Winner:  “It’s never a layup here at Talladega. It’s always close. You never get a big lead … (Crew chief) Todd (Gordon) made some good adjustments during the race and found some speed in the car, so that was pretty neat to see some of that. We got that track position and just hung onto it. I was able to stay on the bottom and try to run the bottom and keep everyone in line, and that worked out really well. Kevin (Harvick) did a good job with that, which ultimately got us all a great

  • Wikipedia had to lock Trent Baalke's page because 49ers fans won't stop vandalizing it

    Hopefully Trent Baalke doesn't google himself. The general manager of the 49ers — and target of much fan vitriol after the team's 1-6 start — has had his Wikipedia page vandalized so many times over the past two days that Wikipedia put a temporary ban on edits.  The Mercury News noticed on Monday that someone had altered Baalke's page to read: "Despite the incredibly awful job he has done, and continued success in embarrassing and destroying this organization, gutless Jed York refuses to fire Baalke. An 11 year old can see that Baalke is running this team into the ground, but York doesn't care as long as he continues to make a profit." But that was hardly the first or the last edit. The page's

  • Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool title talk: “I don’t care”

    Jurgen Klopp isn’t having any of your title talk. After Liverpool beat West Bromwich Albion 2-1 on Saturday at Anfield and Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City and Manchester United all dropped points this weekend, plenty of people are talking up Liverpool’s chances of winning the Premier League title this season. With nine games of the season gone, Liverpool sit joint-top with Arsenal and Man City on 20 points with Chelsea and Tottenham just behind them on 19 points. It is tight at the top but whatever people are saying, Klop isn’t bothered. “I don’t care. It is normal in football that when you are in a good position people start talking a little more positive. I don’t recognize so much what

  • Sainz stars with charge to P6 at COTA, enjoys late battle with childhood hero Alonso

    Carlos Sainz Jr. produced one of the stand-out displays in Sunday’s United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas to finish sixth, matching his best result of the 2016 Formula 1 season so far. Sainz qualified 10th for Toro Rosso on Saturday at the Circuit of The Americas, but rose up to P8 in the early stages after Nico Hulkenberg and Valtteri Bottas dropped back due to contact. Sainz managed to jump Felipe Massa at the second round of pit stops to run seventh before Max Verstappen and Kimi Raikkonen retired, handing the Spaniard fifth. After seeing off pressure from Massa, Sainz went wheel-to-wheel with his childhood racing hero, Fernando Alonso, in the final two laps, but was unable to keep the

  • Gilbert Arenas -- Here's My $111 Million NBA Contract ... Take a Look! (DOCUMENT)

    1 10/25/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF Ever wonder what an $111 million NBA contract looks like? Well, here you go ... courtesy of Gilbert Arenas. The ex-NBA star filed the complete 2008 contract he signed with the Washington Wizards in his family law case ... a contract which was supposed to pay $111 mil over 6 years. As Arenas put it, "Amnesty kicked in" -- and the payouts were stretched over 8 years instead. His final installment will hit his bank account on Oct. 31st. Of course, Arenas -- who made more than $160 MIL during his career -- now says with no more NBA money coming in, he can't afford to keep his kids in private school. The contract spells out exactly how much Gilbert got paid every

  • Comeback Canucks? Not against the Ducks

    The Vancouver Canucks have made a habit of third-period comebacks early this season. Playing with the lead, though? Not so much. Despite their early penchant for late-game magic — certainly not a sustainable method of winning in the long-term — the Canucks were unable to score a come-from-behind win against the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday. Instead, they lost 4-2, as Nick Ritchie and Corey Perry scored late in the third period to nullify any chance of a Vancouver comeback. Henrik Sedin had gotten the Canucks back into a tied game early in the final period, before the Ducks killed off a Vancouver power play and then surged ahead for good. It’s Vancouver’s first regulation loss of the season. In six

  • MLS Power Rankings: Going to the playoffs edition

    As we prepare for the 2016 MLS Cup Playoffs, which kick off Wednesday night, we take one last shot at MLS power rankings, featuring only the 12 times still fighting in the postseason. Which are the sides most likely to represent the East and the West in MLS Cup 2016? Let’s talk it out… Eastern Conference 1. New York Red Bulls — Bradley Wright-Phillips scored 24 goals this season, including 14 in RBNY’s last 12 games. Sacha Kljestan finished the season with 19 assists, but should have had 20. Not to bury the lead here, but they haven’t lost a game since July 3 (9 wins, 6 draws). That’s an absurd run capped off with four straight wins to finish the regular season. Throw in the fact they’ll host

  • Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh says replay decision was the ‘worst call he’s ever seen’

    Jim Harbaugh has been known for using a bit of hyperbole from time to time but it sounds as though he was really, really, really upset at a call in the final few minutes of No. 2 Michigan’s 41-8 win over Illinois on Saturday. Wolverines quarterback John O’Korn had completed a third-and-nine pass to Drake Harris that officials had marked short of the first down by nearly two yards. Harbaugh quickly challenged the spot but Big Ten replay officials upheld the call to force a fourth down decision that was a little longer than it should have been according to the coach. “I’ve never seen a worse call in the game of football,” Harbaugh said at his Monday press conference. “My understanding of the rules

  • Mets plan to slow-play market for Yoenis Cespedes

    The Mets want to bring back Yoenis Cespedes, "but they probably wouldn't chase him if he got an enormous long-term deal elsewhere," given his age and the streaky nature of his production, according to weekend report from ESPN.com's Buster Olney. According to multiple reports, Cespedes is expected to opt out of his three-year contract and become a free agent. There is mutual interest in having him return to the Mets. However, "There is no urgency," a source told Olney, who says the Mets are open to effectively updating his current deal with another opt-out clause. Cespedes has until three days after the end of the World Series to decide whether to opt out of his current contract with the Mets, ESPN.com's

    Well, that didn't take long. By "that," I really mean "Tom Brady taking over the NFL on his official middle finger to the entire league tour." It's been three games since Brady returned from his four-game Deflategate suspension and he's already established himself as the best quarterback of the 2016 season. After another successful outing against the Steelers on Sunday, Brady has finally thrown enough passes to qualify for official NFL passing statistics (which MassLive's Kevin Duffy first pointed out). He's already on top of every meaningful category. Through three games, Brady's gone 76 of 101 for 1,004 yards, eight touchdowns, zero interceptions, and a 132.6 passer rating. Let's take a look

  • Video: Dan Girardi’s first goal in nearly a year lifts Rangers to victory

    An offensive defenseman, Dan Girardi is not. His last goal prior to this weekend? Nov. 12, 2015. It’s been a while. Almost an entire year now. But in his return to the New York Rangers lineup on Sunday, the 32-year-old Girardi was able to bust his scoring slump on a slap shot from the blue line that beat Arizona Coyotes goalie Louis Domingue. The Rangers eventually won by a final score of 3-2, with Girardi’s goal counting as the winner. He scored only twice last season, and hasn’t scored more than five goals in a single season since 2009-10.

  • Lakers keep Metta World Peace and Thomas Robinson, waive Anthony Brown

    The NBA just can’t shake Metta World Peace as a player. Despite the Lakers’ reported intention of waiving World Peace and making him an assistant coach, they’ll keep him, Thomas Robinson and Nick Young into the regular season. After waiving Yi Jianlian at his request, they’ll also waive Anthony Brown. Lakers release: The Los Angeles Lakers have waived forward Anthony Brown, it was announced today by General Manager Mitch Kupchak. Brown was the No. 34 pick just last year, but he didn’t show much as a rookie and is already 24. There was no need to keep him over more valuable players – like Robinson. But World Peace, who turns 37 next month? He’s washed up and offers no upside. The Lakers don’t

  • What does the future hold for Nationals’ Ben Revere after disappointing season in D.C.?

    When it came down the last few roster decisions before the start of the NLDS, the Washington Nationals decided to leave Ben Revere off the 25-Man roster. Revere, 28, struggled offensively throughout his first season in the nation’s capital, after injuring himself on the first day of the regular season. He finished the season with a .217/.260/.300 line over in 103 games and 375 plate appearances, over which he was worth -1.2 fWAR, down from a .306/.342/.377 line between Toronto and Philadelphia in 2015, and 2.2 and 1.9 fWAR campaigns in the previous two seasons (2015-16).

  • Report: Ducks put Despres on long-term injured reserve

    Simon Despres has played only once this season, back on Oct. 13, due to injury. It now appears the Anaheim Ducks don’t see the 25-year-old defenseman returning to their lineup any time soon. On Sunday, TSN’s Bob McKenzie reported on Twitter that the Ducks placed Despres, who carries an average annual value of $3.7 million, on long-term injured reserve, providing Anaheim with some flexibility in the salary cap situation. By placing Despres on LTIR, it’s been suggested this could possibly allow the Ducks to sign restricted free agent defenseman Hampus Lindholm. Lindholm, 22, missed training camp, instead deciding to stay in Sweden while he awaits a deal with the Ducks. Six games into Anaheim’s

  • EFL Cup Tues. preview: Spurs-Reds, plenty of non-PL participants

    Sixteen teams remain in the battle to clinch the Premier League’s first European place of next season’s tournament, and we have some tremendous battles on tap for Tuesday and Wednesday in the EFL Cup (formerly the League Cup). Today we focus on the 24 hours ahead of us, focusing on Tuesday’s five matches and allowing the Manchester Derby, West Ham-Chelsea, and Southampton-Sunderland to percolate a bit. That’s not to say we don’t have a pair of giants dueling on Tuesday. Liverpool is three wins away from a return to the final, where the Reds fell in penalties last season. Standing in their way is Tottenham Hotspur, a deep squad which won’t have to worry much about a quick turnaround from Saturday.

    It's been a rare thing in Bryson DeChambeau's recent golf history that he has not been the biggest draw in his own group. It looks like that will be the case, however, at the Franklin Templeton Shootout in December when he is joined in the team event by Lexi Thompson. The 21-year-old Thompson is the first female to play in the unofficial PGA Tour event since Annika Sorenstam in 2006. She's the first to play in any type of PGA Tour event since Michelle Wie in 2008. The format for the Franklin Templeton Shootout is a three-round combination of alternate shot, scramble and best ball. It consists of 12 two-golfer teams and will include Justin Thomas, Smylie Kaufman, Kevin Chappell and Luke Donald.
