  • 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

  • Report: Kevin Durant told Russell Westbrook he’d re-sign with the Thunder

    Cheered all night long by his basketball-crazed new fan base, Kevin Durant knocked down a 3-pointer on the Americans’ first touch and slammed home a dunk the very next time down the floor. What a performance for Golden State’s latest big star to help lead the U.S. Olympic team past China 107-57 on Tuesday night for a third dominant victory in as many exhibition games. Durant, who finalized his two-year contract with the Warriors on July 8, scored all 13 of his points during a 13 1/2-minute span of the first half while playing his first game at his new home, Oracle Arena. Booed in Los Angeles a couple days back, Durant received a far more friendly reception in the Bay Area he will now call home.

  • Chris Bosh and the Heat are in another debate over his health

    Chris Bosh saw a second straight season end early due to blood clots last February, but the story of his 2015-16 hardly ended there. While Bosh and the Miami Heat largely kept their disagreements out of the press, reports indicated that player and team were at odds over when he should return to the court. Bosh apparently wanted to play in the postseason (where the Heat took the Toronto Raptors to seven games in the Eastern Conference Semifinals), but the team did not want to risk his health.

  • Rudy Gay: Kings aren’t handling trade rumors right way

    Rudy Gay has come up again and again in trade rumors. The Kings forward doesn’t seem thrilled with that. Gay, in a Q&A with Blake Ellington of Sactown Royalty: You mentioned people are wondering if you are going to be here next season. I imagine you are like most of the guys in the league and try not to pay attention to that stuff, but do you pay attention to trade rumors and does it bother you? I mean it’s been pretty loud as of late so it’s hard not to pay attention to it. I think it just goes to, I don’t know, I think there’s always ways to do things and in this situation I don’t think it’s going about the right way.

  • Video: Adrian Beltre belts a walk-off home run on Monday against the Athletics

    The Rangers found themselves in a 5-1 hole after three innings against the Athletics on Monday, but scratched out some runs in the middle innings. That allowed them to enter the bottom of the ninth inning trailing by only one run, 6-5, facing A’s closer Ryan Madson. Adrian Beltre, who hit a solo home run in the seventh inning, stepped to the plate with a runner on first base and two outs. He was the Rangers’ last hope to keep the game alive. The veteran third baseman swung at Madson’s first pitch, a 96 MPH fastball, and drilled it to left-center field for a walk-off two-run home run. Beltre now has nine walk-off home runs in his career. While the 37-year-old isn’t quite the offensive dynamo he

  • David Wright is not alone in naming his child after Shea Stadium

    New York Mets third baseman David Wright and his wife, Molly, welcomed a daughter into the world over the weekend and named her Olivia Shea Wright, leading to mass speculation in the media in New York that the Wrights gave their daughter a middle name in honor of the stadium the Mets called home from 1964-2008. The Wall Street Journal went to the trouble of examining baby names in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut over the past 40 years to see how many people possibly named their kids Shea and if there might be a correlation to the Mets and Shea Stadium.

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.

Fisher has done plenty since retiring as a player — getting hired by the Knicks, getting fired by the Knicks and in between being attacked by Matt Barnes and finding another controversy about player relations. All the while, Fisher counted against the cap for the Thunder, his last NBA team. Oklahoma City finally renounced him to sign Alex Abrines.

  • 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

  • Reserve Ohio State DL Dylan Thompson academically ineligible for the fall

    “Do something. And underline that. Do something.” Those were the words of Urban Meyer back in May when discussing the status of Dylan Thompson with his Ohio State football program.  Fastforward two months, and Thompson did indeed do something, albeit it’s a something that’s not even remotely positive. At the Big Ten Media Days Tuesday, the OSU head coach announced that Thompson is academically ineligible for the fall semester.  That means the defensive lineman likely won’t play at all in 2016, and it could mean it’s the end of the road for the player in Columbus. Thompson came to the Buckeyes as a three-star 2014 signee, rated as the No. 21 strongside defensive end in the country and the No.

    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

  • Benjamin Albright: Brock Osweiler Didn't Leave Broncos Over Money

    Previously the two most oft-discussed "theories" about Osweiler's unexpected departure from Denver were: 1 - Denver wouldn't budge on a number they had in mind.  Once that happened, John Elway doubled-down and publicly cried about how, I guess, that because Brock wasn't getting what he felt the market eventually justified, Brock "didn't want to be a Bronco." 2 - Brock had some anger or hurt feelings about being yanked late in the year in favor of Phony Corporate Shill when he felt like he had done his job. Allbright's appearance on the show seems to support Theory No. 2, that Brock was upset from being pulled in the game against San Diego when a couple of turnovers happened that were not entirely
