  • Mets must take path of least resistance to postseason

    By the way, you can stream Sunday’s game at Yahoo’s Sports Home, MLB index and video home beginning at 1:10 p.m. Once loaded with arms like Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler, New York is currently down to Noah Syndergaard, who’s currently battling strep throat, and Bartolo Colon, who is officially its steadiest and healthiest rotation option. Therein lies the problem for the Mets.

    Phil Mickelson wasn't happy with the PGA Tour's course setup for the Tour Championship, and he let everyone know. After his final round, Mickelson was critical of the PGA Tour's setup ahead of this week's Ryder Cup because of the thickness of the rough. After a Sunday 66, Mickelson finished in 22nd place. The PGA of America runs the Ryder Cup when it's hosted in the United States, and the European tour runs the event when it's held in Europe.

    At age 30, Wayne Rooney is no longer good enough to play for Manchester United in the Premier League. Frankly, Rooney is a captain without a position on United because he is simply not good enough to play anywhere on the park at this point in his career. With Rooney left out of the starting lineup, Juan Mata got to play in his natural No. 10 role for the first time this season.

    With the NBA season around the corner, there are a lot of eyes on how teams and players will handle the national anthem protests that have become prominent in the NFL. Clippers head coach Doc Rivers wholeheartedly supports the notion of his players participating, and hopes the whole team can figure out a statement to make together. If anyone wants to deny that, they just need to study the history of our country,” he told the Southern California News Group on Friday.

  • William Byron scores Chase win in New Hampshire

    William Byron led all but 14 laps to win Saturday’s UNOH 175 Camping World Truck Series Chase-opening race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. His win advances him to the second round of the playoffs and he won’t have to worry about needing a strong finish at Talladega Superspeedway in two weeks to advance. “We’re definitely relieved,” said Byron, who has made one career restrictor-plate start. “I felt like going into this race, it wasn’t a must-win by any means, but if we had a chance to win like today we were going to take it.” The victory is his sixth of the season. He is the fifth consecutive pole-winner to go on and win the series race at New Hampshire. Christopher Bell, who is in the Chase,

  • Sadly, Crosby praise still comes at Ovechkin’s expense

    Here’s a homework assignment for you: praise Sidney Crosby‘s incredible work without downgrading Alex Ovechkin. Yes, it’s not easy. ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun presented an interesting column that spotlighted an admittedly “tired narrative” while still ultimately pumping up Crosby at Ovechkin’s expense. LeBrun quoted anonymous executives who, yes, trotted out tired narratives. One executive did the baseball thing in making it Crosby (“five-tool guy”) vs. Ovechkin (“home run hitter”) while another equated it to a full-court player vs. a “half-court” player. It’s all … well, tiresome. Ovechkin may not have had the greatest game of his life on Saturday, but watching that game, was the takeaway really that

  • 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,”

  • Flores could be done for rest of season

    Wilmer Flores could be done playing for the rest of the reason, Terry Collins told reporters Saturday. Latest update (Sept. 24) Flores, who injured his wrist two weeks ago in a play at home plate in Atlanta, is still not close to swinging a bat, Collins said.  "The level of concern is DEFCON 4," Collins said to reporters on Wednesday, Sept. 24. "It's been 10 days and he hasn't been able to swing. I'm very concerned." Flores received a second cortisone injection Monday, Sept. 20, for a bone bruise in his wrist.  Flores initially injured himself sliding headfirst into Braves catcher A.J.

  • Vandoorne felt 2017 was ‘last chance’ to get F1 seat

    Stoffel Vandoorne believes that 2017 was his “last chance” to make the step up to Formula 1 with McLaren after spending the past two years waiting in the wings for a seat. McLaren announced over the Italian Grand Prix weekend that Vandoorne would be moving into a full-time race seat for 2017 alongside Fernando Alonso following Jenson Button’s decision to take a sabbatical. Vandoorne had been knocking on McLaren’s door for a seat for some time, particularly after winning the GP2 title in 2015.

  • Robin Lehner certainly has swagger

    Robin Lehner is a big goalie, and barring possible language barrier issues, sure seems to have a pretty big personality. That at least seems to be the case with the Buffalo Sabres’ top guy, who provided the Buffalo News’ John Vogl with a great quote: “There’s a lot of pressure on me, and that’s fine. … I know I’m a good goaltender,” Lehner said. Hey now. As much as the Sabres feel like a work in progress, acquiring Lehner was one of GM Tim Murray’s boldest moves. Murray was able to observe Lehner in Ottawa, and despite some struggles, the big Swede (6-foot-5, 240 lbs.) was sneaky-good in 2015-16. Twenty-one games serves as a limited sample size, yet a .924 save percentage seems quite promising.

  • Vacc's 3 Keys: Giants clash with defending division champs

    Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Three weeks into the season, the New York Giants have a golden chance to bury the defending NFC East champions. Right? "I wouldn't say that," Giants linebacker Jonathan Casillas said. "It's a divisional opponent and these wins are huge. But what people aren't really saying, they are the defending champs. They are the NFC East champs. We have to dethrone them. We have to go through them because they have that title." Maybe that's true, but the Redskins are 0-2 and the Giants are 2-0, and a Giants win on Sunday afternoon could put Washington in such a deep hole from which it might never be able to recover.
