  • NBA Pulls 2017 All-Star Game Out of Charlotte, North Carolina, Over 'Anti-LGBT' Law

  • 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.

  • Could the Yankees release Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira?

    The Yankees, at 48-46, are waffling between considering themselves buyers or sellers heading into the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline. Part of the reason the club hasn’t performed better is because first baseman Mark Teixiera and DH Alex Rodriguez have both been underwhelming offensively. Rodriguez has a .640 OPS and his playing time was reduced recently, limiting him to left-handed starters. Teixeira, who missed some time last month with a knee injury, has a .591 OPS. Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckleball reports that some in the Yankees’ organization have discussed, in the event the club decides to commit to selling, whether or not to simply release Rodriguez and Teixeira. Rodriguez is owed

  • Beyond New Orleans, NBA considering New York/Brooklyn and Chicago for 2017 All-Star game

    New Orleans is reportedly favored to host the 2017 NBA All-Star game, which was originally scheduled for Charlotte. But the Big Easy isn’t the only location in contention. Brian Windhorst of ESPN: Several other NBA cities have become options if the league takes the step, including Chicago and New York/Brooklyn, sources told ESPN. New York and Brooklyn co-hosted 2015 All-Star weekend. Chicago hasn’t hosted since 1988. That difference might put a dent into my theory that New Orleans’ recent hosting history (2008 and 2014) gives it a leg up to handle the event on short notice, though there could be a sliding scale on experience. Interestingly, New York is the NBA’s largest market with Chicago near

Instead, the Rangers get him at $4.625 million, which is under Kreider’s submitted ask of $4.75 million for arbitration and well under the $5.25 million he was asking for in a long-term deal that ate up unrestricted free agent years, according to Larry Brooks of the NY Post.

    INDIANAPOLIS — Car owner Richard Childress anticipates he’ll know his 2017 driver lineup within three weeks. While Childress told NBC Sports on Thursday that “we’ve still got a couple of months before we make any real decisions,’’ he did say that “we’ll kind of know in the next two or three weeks. We’ll have a direction.’’ The main question for the three-car organization is Ryan Newman’s status. He’s in the final year of his contract, and Childress’ grandson, Ty Dillon, appears set to move to Sprint Cup next season.

Mourinho shakes his head and smirks at the fan as if to say, “Appreciate the support, but not going to happen.” He had more than 200 wins as Chelsea boss, with three Premier League crowns, three League Cups and an FA Cup on his resume from two stints leading the Stamford Bridge set.

  • Yasiel Puig leaves the Dodgers-Nats game with an apparent injury

    Great timing, Yasiel. Yasiel Puig was removed from this afternoon’s game against the Nationals with an apparent hamstring injury. Puig was trying to leg out a grounder in the top of the seventh inning but was seen to “crow hop” as he crossed the bag and then went directly into the visitor’s tunnel. Scott Van Slyke took over in right field in the bottom of the seventh. Puig has been subject to trade rumors of late, with the Dodgers said to both be considering moving him and looking to make a big splash of some sort at the trade deadline, possibly for a top-end starting pitcher. Obviously those two things could go together, with Puig being sent in a package for said pitcher. But not if he’s hurt

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.

This spring, after nearly winning the Super Bowl with Carolina, Norman signed with Washington, the Giants’ NFC East nemesis, guaranteeing at least two Beckham-Norman face-offs each and every season.

  • What should the Mets do before the trade deadline?

    Matthew Cerrone | Snapchat | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | About Me If the Mets do anything, it will be to add a back-end starting pitcher or reliever and maybe a bench player to round out the roster, before the Aug. 1 non-waiver trade deadline. I don't see them acquiring a big hitter or front-line starting pitcher because they really don't have the prospects needed to make that level trade. Also, there aren't a lot of elite, immediate-impact type guys available, according to people around baseball.
