  • NASCAR America: Ray Evernham says Jeff Gordon’s return could help Hendrick cars improve

    Ray Evernham, Jeff Gordon‘s former crew chief, said he was not surprised by the driver’s return and believes that Gordon can help Hendrick Motorsports with its cars. Gordon will drive the No. 88 Chevrolet at Indianapolis and Pocono as Dale Earnhardt Jr. continues to recover from concussion-like symptoms. “I think that the sharpness has just been off of the Hendrick cars, they’re not as sharp as people want,” Evernham said on NASCAR America. “It would be good to get Jeff back in one of the cars and maybe give some of his input to the engineering staff as well.”

    The NBA has pulled its 2017 All-Star Game out of Charlotte, North Carolina in the wake of the passage of a controversial measure that has been criticized as anti-LGBT. "Since March, when North Carolina enacted HB2 and the issue of legal protections for the LGBT community in Charlotte became prominent, the NBA and the Charlotte Hornets have been working diligently to foster constructive dialogue and try to effect positive change," the NBA said.

  • 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.

    The Special One may be a Chelsea legend, but he’s leaving it in the past. Jose Mourinho was signing autographs during Manchester United’s tour of China, and video surfaced of him shaking off a fan holding out a Chelsea jersey. 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. But he was fired less than half a season after lifting that third PL trophy, and clearly he’s not feeling it. Still, can’t expect every admirer to buy a new shirt that quick, can you?

  • 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.

  • Mercedes ‘optimistic’ Rosberg will avoid gearbox penalty

    Mercedes is “optimistic” that Nico Rosberg will avoid a gearbox penalty at this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix despite hitting trouble two weeks ago at Silverstone. Rosberg lost seventh gear during the closing stages of the British Grand Prix, prompting Mercedes to give him instructions over the radio to prevent a terminal failure. Although the messages were deemed to have been in breach of the sporting regulations, a 10-second time penalty meant that Rosberg only dropped to third, retaining the lead of the drivers’ championship in the process. Gearboxes are required to last six grands prix under the 2016 regulations, Rosberg taking his last two rounds ago in Austria after crashing in FP3.

Big 12 expansion is a non-starter unless it includes University of Houston.

  • 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.

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. But the Braves still won’t hear of it. “We have no intention of trading him,” a Braves official said for the third straight week. Braves higher-ups

  • 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.

  • After a 10-year pro career, Ryan O’Byrne is going back to school

    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. He also played for the Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL), Florida Everblades (ECHL), Prague Lev (KHL), Ambri-Piotta (Swiss-A) and HV71 Jonkoping. In 308 NHL games, O’Byrne had five goals, 39 points and 369 penalty minutes.

  • 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

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.
