  • 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.

  • Jose Mourinho laid back on Paul Pogba transfer to Manchester United

    Jose Mourinho is playing it cool when it comes to Paul Pogba and the rampant speculation about him joining Manchester United. Multiple reports say Pogba, 23, has told Juventus he wants to leave and now the two clubs are haggling over a price. Yesterday it was reported that United offered $113 million up front and an extra $18 million in add-ons but Juve rejected that offer and want $131 million up front with an extra $12 million in add-ons. If that’s the case then Pogba would become the most expensive player in history if he returned to United, the club he left in 2012 for a $1.2 million compensation fee. Mourinho, speaking at a press conference on United’s tour of China, was coy on Pogba signing

  • Islanders planning Brooklyn escape to Queens: Report

    Are the New York Islanders planning their escape from Barclays Center? The Islanders are in talks with the Wilpon family, owners of the New York Mets, about building an arena adjacent to Citi Field in Queens, according to sports columnist Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg News, who is the first mainstream source to report rumors that have been kicking around New York recently. Willets Point is emerging as a persuasive alternative to the team’s current home at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center if the Islanders’ owners and arena officials can’t agree on a series of hockey-specific improvements, said the people, who asked for anonymity because the negotiations are private.

    Can Viktor Postol overcome the odds against Terence Crawford on Saturday? LAS VEGAS – Viktor Postol’s introduction to Freddie Roach wasn’t quite as random as Manny Pacquiao’s, but Postol is hopeful that aligning with the seven-time Trainer of the Year can have a fraction of the positive impact upon him that it had on the Filipino superstar.

    The Jim Harbaugh Effect is real — and the results will more than likely wind up in Las Vegas’s pockets. According to a report from David Purdum of ESPN, Michigan stands as bettors’ favorite choice to win this season’s national title. Purdum writes that more money has been placed on the Wolverines to win in all than any other team, and their national title odds have risen from 15-to-1 to 7-to-1. Alabama remains the only team with higher odds than Michigan. Ohio State, however, remains a 6.5-point favorite to beat Michigan at the Horseshoe in November. Ohio State is just a tick behind Michigan for the national title at 8-to-1 odds. Rounding out the top five among the public’s top bets to claim

  • Buster Olney comes up with nine ideas to “improve” baseball. They’re mostly bad.

    Buster Olney and the Mike & Mike radio crew at ESPN did a little thought experiment about how to improve baseball. It was partially audience-sourced and the entire idea was based on something ESPN did about the NFL last week. They came up with nine suggestions to improve the game. Given that (a) baseball is fine; (b) Mike and Mike is a talk radio show that spends far more time dealing with football than baseball; and (c) fan-sourcing anything is going to be a dicey proposition, especially when a huge number of those fans are football fans who dig talk radio, you can imagine the quality of these ideas. Short version: they ain’t that great. A rundown. 1. Reduce games to seven innings This is bad

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.

    Ryan O’Byrne’s professional hockey career has officially come to an end. The 32-year-old made the announcement via his Twitter account earlier today. O’Byrne’s professional career lasted a total of 10 years. In the NHL, he played for the Montreal Canadiens, Colorado Avalanche and Toronto Maple Leafs.

    For the seventh year in a row, and third with Under Armour, Notre Dame will don special uniforms for its Shamrock Series game. For this year’s game — Nov. 12 against Army in San Antonio — the Irish will stick with green jerseys and gold helmets, this time sprinkling in a military theme and the “God. Country. Notre Dame.” slogan. Not my favorite looks, but certainly not a crime against humanity, either. Notre Dame has said there won’t be a Shamrock Series game in 2017, so this will be the last special edition Irish kits we should see for a while. Notre Dame is 7-0 all-time in Shamrock Series games.

  • 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.
