  • World-Record Ferrari Attempt Falls Short

    The hoped-for Guinness record for the number of Ferraris in a parade that the organizers of the 2016 Finali Mondiali at Daytona International Speedway fell a bit short – 155 Ferraris short, to be precise. At the Ferrari Race Day at Silverstone in 2012, Ferrari F1 driver Felipe Massa led a parade of 964 Ferraris, upping the world record set in Japan of 490 cars, which upped the record set at Silverstone in 2007 of 385 cars. The parade at Daytona managed 809 Ferraris, which, while not a record, is still a bunch of Ferraris.

  • Russell Westbrook Triple-Double Watch: Game 21, versus New Orleans

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook is threatening to become the first NBA player to average a triple-double since Cincinnati Royals Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson achieved the double-figure points, assists and rebounds mark during the 1961-62 NBA season. A lot has changed in the league since then, which is why Westbrook’s current averages of 30.2 points, 11.3 assists and 10.5 rebounds would make such a feat a remarkable achievement in line with some of the greatest individual seasons in NBA history. As Westbrook takes on each new opponent while the OKC season drawls on, we’ll be updating his chances at matching the Big O’s feat.

  • The Matt Holliday signing fits the Yankees' mold

    Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives The Yankees have a plan and signing Matt Holliday as their designated hitter signals they are sticking to it. GM Brian Cashman weighed several long-term and short-term options on the DH market, but the blueprint for the organization screamed one-year deal, to which they settled. The club is not one year from serious World Series contention -- in fact they might be a couple of years away. So long-term deals for a DH made little sense. I was hoping the Yankees would reunite with switch-hitter Carlos Beltran because I felt his left-handed power was a necessity and he was also looking for a one-year deal. Once Beltran signed with the

  • VIDEO: Mourinho again harps on Manchester United performance despite result

    The third straight 1-1 draw for Manchester United has left Jose Mourinho little more than a broken record. Everton scored on a late penalty to even things up, and it gave the Portuguese manager even more fodder for his tiresome narrative. “We were the best team by far,” Mourinho said. “But we didn’t win. We had chances for 2-0, we had the ball off the post, and then we concede a goal in the last minute.” When asked if his team dropped off at the end, he rejected that notion, and instead decided to lament a perceived double standard among fans and the media. Mourinho feels the focus is always on a negative, whether that is the result or the performance. “When my team wins matches playing a different

Andrew Wiggins scored 29 points, Karl-Anthony Towns added 27 points and 15 rebounds, and the Timberwolves showed late-game poise by erasing a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Southeast Division-leading Charlotte Hornets 125-120 in overtime on Saturday night. “The more close games you’re in and the more you win, the better you get,” Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau said. “Repetition builds habits. When you see things happen in a game, it slows everything down.” Zack LaVine added 17 points and Ricky Rubio had nine points and 12 assists for the Timberwolves, who

  • It sounds like there’s friction between Canadiens captain Pacioretty and coach Therrien (Update)

    After an incredible start to the season, the Canadiens have cooled off a little bit, but they still own an impressive 16-6-2 record. One of the reasons they’ve hit a rough patch, is because some of their top forwards can’t seem to find the back of the net. Alex Galchenyuk and Alexander Radulov continue to generate scoring chances, but captain Max Pacioretty, who’s hit the 30-goal mark four times in his career, is stuck on five goals. Pacioretty hasn’t looked comfortable all season, and although he tends to be one of the streakier players in the league, he hasn’t put together many great performances in 2016-17 and it seems to be causing some friction in the room.

  • Report: Giants close to signing closer Mark Melancon

    Ken Rosenthal reports that the San Francisco Giants are close to a deal with closer Mark Melancon. Melancon had an outstanding 2016, posting a 1.64 ERA, 2.42 FIP and a 5.42 K/BB rate in 71.1 innings while saving 47 games for the Pirates and Nationals. You may recall that the Giants had a strong interest in Melancon last summer. It was a well-founded interest given the bullpen woes which waylaid San Francisco in the second half of last season and continued on into the playoffs. The terms of the apparently impeding deal will be known soon enough, but Rosenthal reported yesterday that Melancon was fielding offers in the four-years, $60 million range. That’s a lot for a closer, but it’ll probably

  • How does Steve Pearce signing with the Blue Jays affect the Mets?

    The Blue Jays and free-agent utility-man Steve Pearce have agreed to a two-year, $12.5 million contract, according to ESPN's Buster Olney. I've been hearing that the Jays and Fowler are far apart in talks, which may indicate they view him more as a fallback, short-term option if he's yet to sign a deal late in the winter. I believe he has enough suitors to get the four-year deal he's seeking, which could force Toronto back as the most likely landing spot for Bruce... stay tuned. During an interview with WOR 710 AM radio in November, Mets GM Sandy Alderson mentioned Pearce by name when discussing the type of player he might want to add to his bench.
