  • Jordan Spieth ‘got really screwed’ then caddie saved him

    Jordan Spieth had been here before: in this very position, at the first FedEx Cup playoff event, last year’s Barclays, about to flame out and fail to make it to the weekend. His second round at Bethpage Black had barely begun and it could have been over. Spieth double-bogeyed his first hole of the day, No. 10, to tumble to 2-over par — right on the cut line. He looked agitated. It looked as if it was going to be a long day leading to a second consecutive missed cut at the Barclays. This is when his caddie Michael Greller stepped in to make sure history did not repeat itself. Spieth had shot an even-par 71 in Thursday’s opening round and, after the double to open Friday’s round, as he walked to

  • Geno Smith publicly named Fitzpatrick's backup

    Geno Smith is still No. 2 for the New York Jets. After previously being vague about the situation a few days ago, coach Todd Bowles said Smith will play after starter Ryan Fitzpatrick in the preseason game against the Giants on Saturday night. "You always prepare the same way," Smith said after practice Wednesday. "It's really no different. I'm just continuing to work hard." There had been some uncertainty about the pecking order of the backups after Bryce Petty had a good performance and Smith struggled against Washington. On Sunday, Bowles wouldn't say for sure what the rotation of the quarterbacks would be this week. He did say then that he was clear about the four quarterbacks on the roster,

  • Red Sox place Andrew Benintendi on the disabled list with a sprained knee

    This is one of those deals where you could’ve just read the headline and had the whole story, but the handbook says I have to put something in this space, so here we are. In other news, back-to-back posts with the names “Benintendi” and “Rzepczynski” is kind of fun. OK, fine. The deal with Benintendi is that he sprained his knee while running the bases in last night’s win over the Rays. He had an MRI on the knee but the results are not yet known. Chris Young will see the bulk of Benintendi’s playing time in the outfield. Infielder Marco Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to fill the roster spot. Benintendi is hitting .324/.365/.485 with a homer and ten RBI in 21 games.

  • U.S. Soccer terminates Hope Solo's national team contract, bans her six months

    U.S. women’s coach Jill Ellis and U.S. Soccer general secretary Dan Flynn met with Solo, 35, in Seattle on Wednesday afternoon and gave her the news, which comes with three months of severance pay. Solo, who received public criticism from teammate Megan Rapinoe and U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati for her comments, did not apologize for them. “The comments by Hope Solo after the match against Sweden during the 2016 Olympics were unacceptable and do not meet the standard of conduct we require from our national team players,” Gulati said in a press release.

  • Phil Jackson names biggest mistake with Knicks: Not taking Jae Crowder in Mavericks trade

    Jae Crowder – one of the NBA’s most underrated players – went to the Celtics from the Mavericks in the Rajon Rondo trade (which, in hindsight, should be called the Jae Crowder trade). He then re-signed with Boston on an absurdly cheap contract. But the Knicks could’ve had him instead. New York traded Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton to the Mavericks for a package of middling assets in June 2014. One of those middling assets was the No. 34 pick in the upcoming draft. It could’ve been Crowder. Knicks president Phil Jackson, via Charley Rosen of Today’s Fastbreak: I think the biggest mistake I made was actually this…One of the first deals I engineered when I came back to New York was to trade Tyson

  • WATCH: Young WWE fans nail adorable impressions of Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman

    Imitation is the greatest form of flattery. If that's the case, then Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman should be very, very flattered. These young WWE fans recently acted as the massive wrestler/MMA fighter and his advocate with the young Heyman showcasing an incredible impression that should make Paul E. proud. The video was impressive enough to get the attention of Paul Wight (better known as The Big Show), who posted it to his Facebook page. Suplex City, indeed! While the kid doing Heyman clearly nailed it, don't sleep on the Lesnar impression.

  • De Aza's big night leads Mets' offense

    Mets outfielder Alejandro De Aza went 2 for 4 with a home run and a career-high five RBIs in a 10-6 win over the Cardinals on Thursday at Busch Stadium. De Aza hit a two-run single in the fourth inning to give the Mets a 3-0 lead, then blew the game open one inning later with a three-run home run off Adam Wainwright (9-8) to make it 7-0. "Anything that can help the team win, it feels great," De Aza said after the game. "It's fun to do that now, and every time you can. Every time you hit a home run, it's fun." De Aza's second multi-hit game of the month helped the Mets draw within 3 1/2 games of the Cardinals for the second Wils Card spot with 35 games to play.  "This and every game is important,"

Luckily, this upcoming season offers a fresh opportunity for Harden and the Rockets to win over the hearts and minds of basketball fans. Dwight Howard is gone, free agents Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon are around to provide help, and Mike D’Antoni is in as head coach.

The U.S. lost in the quarterfinals, the team's worst finish in history, to Sweden. Everyone was disappointed and heartbroken after the loss, Morgan said. But one player shared her feelings about the match in a way that drew heavy criticism from teammates, fans and the U.S. Soccer Federation, the sports' governing body. Goalkeeper Hope Solo called Sweden "a bunch of cowards" after the match and Wednesday was suspended for six months by U.S. Soccer for her remarks.  “I heard about it just as everyone else did on social media," Morgan said of the suspension before training

  • Jim Boeheim’s Melo comments are evidence of why athletes hate the media

    Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim has a habit of creating headlines that are not all that flattering, to himself or to the people that he’s commenting on, which is why it wasn’t much of a surprise that a quote he gave to Mike Waters of the Syracuse Post-Standard has been making the rounds this week. The quote in question? “He’s unlikely to win an NBA title,” Boeheim said of his former star and now three-time Olympic champion Carmelo Anthony. “He’s never been on a team that even had a remote chance of winning an NBA title.” That sounds bad, doesn’t it? But … I mean, he’s right, isn’t he? Melo is 32 years old and title-less. He’s been to the conference finals once and gotten out of the first round

    Orioles closer Zach Britton had appeared in a major league record 43 consecutive games without allowing an earned run, spanning May 5 to August 22. That streak came to an end on Wednesday evening against the Nationals. The Orioles entered the bottom of the ninth inning holding a 10-3 lead, but reliever Parker Bridwell immediately found himself in hot water. He yielded back-to-back singles to Danny Espinosa and Clint Robinson. He was able to strike out Trea Turner, but walked Jayson Werth to load the bases. Daniel Murphy then crushed his first career grand slam to make it a 10-7 game. That prompted manager Buck Showalter to bring in Britton. Britton, too, was knocked around. He served up a single

Not when he spent the Super Bowl as a spectator, rooting on his Broncos teammates. And, not when Denver brought in a player to replace him, effectively ending his tenure with the team and casting his future in doubt. "It was a little bit stressful," Clady acknowledged. "I can't deny that." The veteran left tackle, acquired by the New York Jets in a trade from Denver in April, is healthy again.
