  • Matt Kenseth OK with inspection rules change but wishes it was made earlier

    Matt Kenseth finished 9th at Chicago on Sunday (Getty). Matt Kenseth sees why NASCAR made the changes it did to the penalty structure surrounding laser inspection but would have liked to see the change made before the Chase began. NASCAR said Wednesday there would be no more minor penalties for teams whose cars fail laser inspection on the rear of the car. Both Jimmie Johnson and Martin Truex Jr.’s cars failed inspection by a slight amount after Sunday’s race at Chicago and NASCAR made the decision to penalize neither team after coming to the realization Johnson’s penalty would be much more impactful than Truex’s because Truex won the race.

  • Barclays adapts to fan base, announces changes for upcoming season

Then came the rumblings, whether they were leaked intentionally or unintentionally, of the team looking for a permanent home that was not in Brooklyn, a facility they can call their own. Not to rain on anyone's parade, but the feasibility of that is slim, at best. So we are back to improving the conditions of the facility the Islanders currently

  • Report: John Farrell won’t rule out a postseason return for Pablo Sandoval

    It’s been a strange season for Red Sox’ third baseman Pablo Sandoval, who lost his starting role in spring training, went 0-for-6 in three regular season appearances, and underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder in May. That was the last the Red Sox were supposed to hear about Sandoval until spring 2017, when he was expected to rejoin the team after a lengthy rehab stint in Florida. On Saturday, manager John Farrell was telling a different story. Per MLB.com’s Sam Blum, Farrell hinted that Sandoval could return to the team as soon as October, albeit in a very limited capacity. At the time of the surgery, it was all looking at the start of next Spring Training,”

  • Islanders have big expectations entering 2016-17

    There has been a metric ton of speculation around the Islanders since the summer, mostly around one central question: Are they any better today than they were at the final buzzer of the five-game loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning? ''[The Lightning series] was frustrating, but you learn from it and you move on,'' Travis Hamonic told reporters at media day on Thursday. Whether this club that lost their best two-way forward, Frans Nielsen, one-third of their vaunted fourth line in Matt Martin, and their top line right winger Kyle Okposo, is actually closer to bringing a fifth Stanley Cup to Long Island is up for debate. For players like Johnny Boychuk and Andrew Ladd, they're probably on their last contracts of their career, with one more window of opportunity to get themselves another ring.
