  • Matt Holliday exits game after being hit in the face by a pitch

    Matt Holliday was hit in the face by a 95 MPH Andrew Cashner fastball during the sixth inning of Thursday night’s game at Busch Stadium. As ESPN Mark Saxon explains, Holliday tried to stay in the game, but he was ultimately replaced with pinch-runner Mike Leake. Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune notes that Holliday had a bloody nose. I won’t embed it, but you can click here to see the video if you are so inclined. From what’s been reported, it doesn’t sound like it’s serious for Holliday, but it’s good that the Cardinals played it safe with their veteran outfielder. We should know more about his condition after the game. Holliday went 0-for-2 prior to getting hit with Cashner’s fastball.

  • What the iconic 1989 Ken Griffey Jr. Upper Deck card means to a generation of fans

    My weekly allowance was $3, and packs of Upper Deck baseball cards, the coolest things I’d ever seen, with their impossibly white borders and holograms on the back – holograms! – were $2 apiece, so I’d resigned myself to one. Ken, the mustachioed man who ran the place and a couple years earlier sold me my first baseball cards, said he’d give me two for $3. Baseball cards were the first drug I ever tried, and they hooked me immediately.

  • Report: White Sox recently turned down a “king’s ransom” for Chris Sale

    Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports hears from a source that the White Sox turned down a “king’s ransom” for starter Chris Sale within the last 48 hours. He went on to explain that the White Sox aren’t going into the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline with the intent to sell, but added that the organization sounds “open-minded.” It’s easy to understand why the White Sox would want to hold onto Sale. He’s a once-in-a-generation pitcher, but he’s also relatively affordable for the next three seasons: $12 million in 2017, $12.5 million if the club picks up his option, and $13.5 million if the club picks up his option. Sale is currently the major league leader in wins with 14 while carrying a 3.18 ERA and

  • About 30 percent of baseball fans would take PEDs to make $15 million

    With Hall of Fame inductions this Sunday, baseball fans are once again face-to-face with the game’s ongoing moral dilemma: What to do about PED users and even suspected PED users. A Hall of Fame without the likes of Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens seems wrong to some fans but rightful and just to others. Likewise, a player like Mike Piazza, who will be inducted Sunday along with Ken Griffey Jr., had a tougher road into Cooperstown because some voters thought he could have cheated.

  • NFL to review allegations against Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliott

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The NFL says it is reviewing domestic violence allegations against Dallas Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliott. A police report says Elliott denied allegations that he assaulted his girlfriend early Friday in Columbus, Ohio, causing bruises and abrasions. The report says he wasn't arrested because of conflicting versions of what happened. Three witnesses told police they didn't see Elliott assault the 20-year-old woman. Elliott says the woman got the bruises and abrasions in a bar fight. The player's father, Stacy Elliott, said in a statement Friday that the claims are "completely false" and that his son has cooperated with the investigation. Ezekiel Elliott is a running back

    Hope Solo’s priorities for the Summer Games in Brazil can be characterized as the following: 1) bring home a fourth straight Olympic gold medal for the United States women’s national team and 2) do everything possible not to come home with the Zika virus. The chances of Solo and her American teammates achieving the former are pretty favorable, considering the U.S. won the Women’s World Cup last year and head coach Jill Ellis has been proactive in keeping the squad energized by incorporating exciting, young talent like Mallory Pugh. Because the goalkeeper tweeted a picture on Thursday night showing off quite the arsenal of insect repellent to keep any Zika-carrying mosquitoes away.

Jon Heyman relayed the news in his latest column for Today’s Knuckleball, and although he did mention that the Braves are still taking calls on their top pitcher, they still aren’t budging on their steep price. Additionally, Heyman mentioned that the Braves are also battling perception problems as well. Teheran would be a major trade chip. But the Braves still won’t hear of it. “We have no intention of trading him,” a Braves official said for the third straight week. Braves higher-ups

The Islanders are in talks with the Wilpon family, owners of the New York Mets, about building an arena adjacent to Citi Field in Queens, according to sports columnist Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg News, who is the first mainstream source to report rumors that have been kicking around New York recently. Willets Point is emerging as a persuasive alternative to the team’s current home at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center if the Islanders’ owners and arena officials can’t agree on a series of hockey-specific improvements, said the people, who asked for anonymity because the negotiations are private.

  • Buster Olney comes up with nine ideas to “improve” baseball. They’re mostly bad.

    Buster Olney and the Mike & Mike radio crew at ESPN did a little thought experiment about how to improve baseball. It was partially audience-sourced and the entire idea was based on something ESPN did about the NFL last week. They came up with nine suggestions to improve the game. Given that (a) baseball is fine; (b) Mike and Mike is a talk radio show that spends far more time dealing with football than baseball; and (c) fan-sourcing anything is going to be a dicey proposition, especially when a huge number of those fans are football fans who dig talk radio, you can imagine the quality of these ideas. Short version: they ain’t that great. A rundown. 1. Reduce games to seven innings This is bad

The USWNT captured a 4-0 win against Costa Rica in the side’s final send-off match before the Olympics, extending the no. 1 ranked team in the world’s unbeaten streak to 15 matches. It only took a quarter of an hour the USWNT to find the lead, but it always looked like it was coming for Jill Ellis’ group.

Last year, the team not only opted to retain Derek Fisher after the worst season in franchise history, but also failed to make the splash many were hoping for. Reeling in reliable role players to surround Carmelo Anthony with did not result in the change that was necessary. While the Knicks didn't come away with a bonafide superstar in Kevin Durant or Dwyane Wade this summer, they still started the offseason off with a bang.
