  • Greg Jennings: Ryan Tannehill has had his hands tied by coaches

    Fresh off a season with the Miami Dolphins, Greg Jennings is once again having his say on quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Jennings, who recently announced his retirement from the NFL, said that Tannehill could conceivably be a star, but it’s hard to say definitively given the limitations put on him by Miami. “I believe that he has what it takes, but because his hands have been tied – because he hasn’t been able to really showcase who he is as a player because of the system or whatever the case may have been – this is his opportunity to take more of a responsibility and a role of, ‘I got this, guys. Give me more freedom so I can really show my teammates, and even myself, who I can be in this league,'” Jennings said on Tiki and Tierney on CBS Sports Radio Wednesday.

  • Angels protest key play during 7-5 loss to Royals

    Major League Baseball’s rulebook splayed out on his desk in Kauffman Stadium’s visiting clubhouse, Mike Scioscia spoke vehemently late Wednesday night. He believed an umpiring misinterpretation robbed his Angels of a victory that could have been theirs. Ahead by two runs on Kansas City in the seventh inning, with Royals on first and second bases, Matt Shoemaker fielded a sacrifice bunt by Raul Mondesi Jr., turned and threw the baseball into right field. Kole Calhoun slipped when he tried to pick it up at the wall and both Royals runners scored while Mondesi took third base. Scioscia emerged at once. The Angels manager argued to home plate umpire Phil Cuzzi that Mondesi ran inside the first-base

  • 5 Worst Things About the Rio Olympics So Far

    It’s hard to believe there was a time when we were ever concerned about the athletes who wouldn’t be participating in the 2016 Summer Olympics. In fact, we can’t remember the last time the Olympics were in this much disarray leading up to the Games themselves. No matter how you look at it, there is a laundry list of issues surrounding the Rio Games.

  • 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

  • Pat Riley: Dion Waiters ‘is not a room-exception player’

    The Heat signed Dion Waiters to a room-exception contract. Heat president Pat Riley, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald: “Dion is not a Room Exception player. He wanted to play for the Miami Heat and chose to forgo other more lucrative financial opportunities to be a part of our championship organization. We are very honored that he made the commitment to come to South Florida and sign with us. Dion is young, athletic and explosive, which fits in with our roster. He will add a great dimension for us at the off-guard spot. I really like the depth and versatility that we now have in our perimeter positions. Welcome aboard Dion!” I’m really curious about those “more lucrative financial opportunities.”

  • Bergeron and Marchand convinced Backes to join Bruins

    JAMAICA PLAIN -- David Backes probably could have opted to have his introductory press conference inside the Bruins dressing room at TD Garden, or maybe even in some finished part of the team's new practice facility in Brighton, which is set to open a couple of months from now. Instead, the new Bruins forward met face-to-face with the media for the first time while taking a tour of the MSPCA and, in the process, introducing Bruins fans to his “Athletes for Animals” charity, a foundation that promotes rescuing -- and protecting the welfare of -- homeless pets nationwide.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Video: Matt Cain launches a three-run home run

    Madison Bumgarner isn’t the only Giants pitcher who can rake. Matt Cain crushed a three-run home run during Tuesday’s game against the Giants. Cain stepped to the plate with runners on the corner and one out against Reds starter Cody Reed in the bottom of the second inning. Reed threw a 1-1 fastball down the middle and Cain hit it about 20 rows back in the left field seats. It’s Cain’s first homer of the season, his first since 2012, and the seventh of his 12-year career. He still has some work to catch up to Bumgarner, who has two homers this year and 13 in his career. On the pitching side of things, Cain got the win against the Reds on Tuesday night, giving up four runs on six hits and a walk

    The Nationals took a 6-4 lead into the bottom of the ninth inning at Progressive Field on Tuesday night against the Indians, but Jonathan Papelbon couldn’t hold on. Gio Gonzalez put together 6 1/3 solid innings, ultimately yielding three runs (two earned) on five hits and a pair of walks with four strikeouts. Even better, the Nats’ offense chased Indians starter and AL All-Star Danny Salazar after four innings. Papelbon walked Jose Ramirez to kick off the bottom half of the ninth, then served up an RBI double to Tyler Naquin to make it a 6-5 game. Chris Gimenez moved Naquin to third base with a sacrifice bunt, but first baseman Ryan Zimmerman‘s throw to second baseman Daniel Murphy went wide,
