  • How sparring with Manny Pacquiao gave Viktor Postol newfound confidence

    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. Roach turned Pacquiao from a good but unknown fighter with plenty of flaws into a world champion in a record eight weight divisions.

The chances of Solo and her American teammates achieving the former are pretty favorable, considering the U.S. won the Women’s World Cup last year and head coach Jill Ellis has been proactive in keeping the squad energized by incorporating exciting, young talent like Mallory Pugh. Because the goalkeeper tweeted a picture on Thursday night showing off quite the arsenal of insect repellent to keep any Zika-carrying mosquitoes away.

  • 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.

  • Which NHL goal scorers were luckiest this season? (Trending Topics)

    A shot from Alex Ovechkin from x location in a high-danger area has a greater chance of going in than one from Zac Rinaldo or even Lee Stempniak. With this in mind, we can reasonably extrapolate that guys like Patrick Kane, who led the league in points and finished second in goals only behind Ovechkin are generally going to appear to be more “lucky” than the average NHLer when their stats are viewed without context. What that basically means is that Kane had a shooting percentage of 16 percent in all situations last year, nearly doubling the NHL average of 8.5 percent.

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.

  • Rosberg edges out Verstappen to lead final Hungary practice

    Nico Rosberg gave Mercedes a clean sweep of practice sessions in Hungary by topping FP3 on Saturday morning, edging out Red Bull’s Max Verstappen by two-thousandths of a second. A fastest lap of 1:20.261 on the super-soft tire gave Rosberg P1 at the checkered flag, but his advantage was far less comfortable than he would have liked. Red Bull arrived in Hungary expected to run Mercedes close, but failed to match the German marque for pace on Friday.
