  • Hanley Ramirez literally throws away a Red Sox win

    In the bottom of the ninth of Thursday’s game between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels, Ramirez absolutely blew it on defense, allowing the Angels to escape with a 2-1 walk-off win after David Price had thrown eight scoreless innings for the Red Sox. Boston closer Brad Ziegler was trying to navigate out of a sticky situation with the bases loaded, one out and a 1-0 lead.

  • Amar’e Stoudemire: ‘My heart was in two places – Phoenix and New York. I just went where I was wanted’

    Before signing with the Knicks to retire, Amar’e Stoudemire reportedly wanted to sign with the Suns this year and last. He essentially confirmed both accounts. Stoudemire, via Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic: “The last two years, we made phone calls to Phoenix but I wasn’t getting any positive response,” Stoudemire told azcentral sports on Thursday. “That would’ve been the perfect way to go out. I didn’t want to beg Phoenix. My heart was in two places – Phoenix and New York. I just went where I was wanted.” According to the report, Stoudemire wanted to play for Phoenix next season — not just retire as a Sun. If that’s the case, I see why the team passed. The Suns have 15 players (the regular-season

  • Julian Green scores hat trick in Bayern Munich's blowout of Inter Milan

    Julian Green of Bayern Munich celebrates his first goal against Inter Milan. Julian Green has set two goals for himself this preseason: 1) stick with Bayern Munich’s senior team and 2) become a part of the United States men’s national team’s plans again. Green, who burst onto the American soccer scene two years ago by surprisingly earning a spot on Jurgen Klinsmann’s World Cup roster and then scoring a superb extra-time strike against Belgium in the Round of 16, recorded a first-half hat trick during an impressive 28-minute stretch in Bayern’s 4-1 victory at Bank of America Stadium.

  • Jeff Gordon reiterates his fill-in role for Dale Earnhardt Jr. is ‘a very temporary thing’

    LONG POND, Pa. — As Dale Earnhardt Jr. preaches patience in his recovery from concussion-like symptoms, Jeff Gordon stated Friday at Pocono that he looks as his fill-in role for Earnhardt as “a very temporary thing.’’ This weekend marks Gordon’s second consecutive race for Earnhardt, who is missing his third race in a row. No decision has been announced on who will drive the No. 88 Chevrolet next weekend at Watkins Glen International. Earnhardt is expected to provide an update on his status Monday, although a decision on who will drive the car could come later in the week. Gordon has said he’s there for as long as Earnhardt and Hendrick Motorsports needs him but there could be other considerations.

  • Did NHL teams suck fun out of 3-on-3 OT? (Trending Topics)

    A little more than a year ago, the NHL announced that it had officially adopted a 3-on-3 overtime as a means of juicing goal-scoring in the league and avoiding the shootout to as great an extent as possible. At the time, we had little understanding of what the NHL looked like at 3-on-3. From 2007 through the end of 2014-15, all NHL teams combined had played a grand combined total of just 87 minutes in that strength situation.

    The acquisition of bazooka-armed reliever Aroldis Chapman wasn’t exactly greeted with glee by Chicago Cubs fans because of the pitcher’s offseason domestic violence incident. While Cubs fans are desperate for their team to finally end its 108-year-old streak without a World Series title, some aren’t desperate enough that they feel comfortable adding a player to the roster who was accused of domestic violence before prosecutors ultimately decided not to file charges. Lifelong Cubs fan Caitlin Swieca decided to do something positive to help herself cope with the disappointment she felt in her beloved team.

Lefty Oliver Perez faced a couple of batters (one reached, one retired), and then Shawn Kelley ended the game with a strikeout.

  • Report: Januzaj wants to leave Manchester United for good

    Adnan Januzaj wants to leave Old Trafford permanently. The 21-year-old has one club goal since his breakout 2013-14 campaign, when he scored four times in the season that saw him turn 19. It wasn’t long ago that the debate on Januzaj’s stardom was not hyped as if, rather when. Countries were fighting for his international future, and United fans were rankled when he didn’t hit the pitch. Now, it’s a surprise if he factors at all. Januzaj hasn’t played for Belgium since 2014, and made just 12 appearances during a loan stint at Borussia Dortmund last season. The Daily Mail reports that Januzaj has told Jose Mourinho he’s ready to leave Manchester. Sunderland have been tipped as a possible destination

  • Mercedes fined for unsafe release, Hamilton avoids grid drop

    Mercedes has been fined €10,000 for unsafely releasing Lewis Hamilton into the pit lane during the final Formula 1 free practice session for the German Grand Prix. Hamilton was released into the fast lane at the start of FP3, forcing Haas driver Romain Grosjean to hit the brakes and come to a stop. The stewards confirmed they would be investigating the incident after the session, meeting with Hamilton and a team representative at 12:30pm local time. Hamilton entered the weekend with two reprimands to his name already in 2016, with a third resulting in a 10-place grid penalty. The precedent for unsafe releases was unclear, with penalties ranging from a reprimand to a grid drop and a fine. The

    Don Henderson, the NHL linesman knocked to the ice by Calgary Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman, has undergone neck surgery to repair damage from the hit and there are fears his career may now be over, according to a report in the Boston Globe. According to one of his friends in the officiating business, Henderson’s recent surgery was aimed at repairing two ruptured disks in his neck, the result of the hit. Felled in the second period, he dusted himself off and finished the game the night he was injured. “I know a lot of people are saying stuff like, ‘Hey, Wideman’s not that type of guy . . . that’s not in his nature . . . he’s a good kid,’ ’’ said one of Henderson’s longtime pals in stripes.

  • Andrew Miller for Lucas Giolito: WHO SAYS NO?!!

    The rumor mongers are churning up some good stuff about the Yankees and the Nationals maybe talking about an Andrew Miller for Lucas Giolito deal. It started with Jon Morosi saying that the Nationals were willing to trade Giolito, one of the top pitching prospects in all of baseball, to the Yankees for Miller straight up. Taking two steps back, the idea of a Miller-for-Giolito deal seems like it’d be something the Yankees would jump at in a heartbeat. Giolito would, in the normal course, be worth more than a relief pitcher. Even a good one under team control like Miller is. So if the Nats were willing to do this, the Yankees would be fools not to accept, right? Well, no. Jon Heyman and Joel Sherman

  • Rosberg doubles up in second Friday practice for German GP

    Nico Rosberg made it two-for-two in practice for the German Grand Prix by topping the timesheets at Hockenheim for Mercedes on Friday afternoon. 2014 winner Rosberg topped the opening practice session on Friday morning at Hockenheim before underpinning Mercedes’ impressive pace by leading FP2, beating teammate Lewis Hamilton once again. Rosberg posted a fastest lap time of 1:15.614 to beat Hamilton by almost four-tenths of a second on the super-soft tire, sending out a firm warning to his title rival ahead of qualifying on Saturday. Hamilton had a scare after coming across Daniel Ricciardo while exiting the pits late on, but escaped unscathed, although not without telling his team and FIA race director Charlie Whiting over the radio that he felt the Red Bull driver had got too close for comfort.
