  • IOC decides against full ban on Russians from Rio Olympics

    Olympic leaders stopped short Sunday of imposing a complete ban on Russia from the Rio de Janeiro Games, assigning individual global sports federations the responsibility to decide which athletes should be cleared to compete. The decision, announced after a three-hour meeting via teleconference of the International Olympic Committee's executive board, came just 12 days before the Aug. 5 opening of the games. "We had to balance the collective responsibility and the individual justice to which every human being and athlete is entitled to," IOC President Thomas Bach said. The IOC rejected calls from the World Anti-Doping Agency and dozens of other anti-doping bodies to exclude the entire Russian Olympic team following allegations of state-sponsored cheating.

On the 3-2 pitch, catcher Elias Diaz hit the ball foul, and it careened toward the stands on the first base side.

  • The Rangers are expecting a better Kevin Hayes next season

    While speaking about Kevin Hayes on a conference call, Jeff Gorton said that he expects Hayes to come into this season with a chip on his shoulder and "play really well." Gorton said that Hayes is a 6-5 center who has shown at times "how good he can be in this league." He said that Hayes' second year was similar in some ways to a lot of players who have a good first year and struggle the next year to meet expectations. Alain Vigneault said after the season that Hayes is part of the Rangers future but needs to step up. It's been said that Hayes is someone who needs to engage more on a consistent basis.

  • Ranieri on Leicester post-Kante: “Don’t worry. Football in Leicester will keep going”

    Claudio Ranieri hasn’t lost his way with words over the summer. The Leicester City boss who famously refused to admit his team was in a title race for most of the Premier League season is keeping it cool in the wake of N'Golo Kante signing for Chelsea. Simply put, Ranieri says everything’s going to be fine. From Sky Sports: “Last season we lost Esteban Cambiasso and everybody was crying,” Ranieri said, after his side drew 1-1 with Celtic in a pre-season friendly. “Now we are crying because we lost Kante. Don’t worry. Football in Leicester will keep going.” Kante was probably the most important part of Leicester’s title capture last season, but Ranieri’s system was also critical. The follow-up

  • With arbitration hearing looming, Corrado and Leafs aren’t that far apart

    Frank Corrado should be used to waiting by now. He had to wait 28 games before the Leafs inserted him into the lineup for the first time last season and now he’s waiting for a new contract. There’s still a gap between the two sides, but it doesn’t appear to be very significant. Corrado and the Leafs will head to arbitration on July 26th unless the two sides can agree to a new deal before then. According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, The Leafs have two different offers on the table. One is a two-way contract, while the other is a one-way deal that would see him make less money if he sticks in the NHL. Corrado is looking for a one-way deal worth $900,000. Toronto scooped Corrado up off waivers

  • What to watch for: Hungarian Grand Prix (NBCSN, NBC Sports app from 7am ET)

    Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton are poised to renew their fierce rivalry in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix after locking out the front row of the grid for Mercedes. Hamilton went into qualifying chasing a sixth pole position at the Hungaroring, and looked to have clinched it when a yellow flag was shown at the end of Q3 following a spin for Fernando Alonso. All drivers were forced to slow down, the majority abandoning their lap altogether. Rosberg was the exception. After lifting through the yellow flag zone, the German lit up the timesheets over the rest of the lap to edge out Hamilton and snatch pole away. The stewards did investigate Rosberg’s lap later that evening to ensure he had slowed
