  • Vettel ‘expected a bit more’ than fourth in Hungary

    Sebastian Vettel says Ferrari “expected a bit more” than fourth place in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix as Red Bull moved to within a point of the Italian marque in the Formula 1 constructors’ championship. Vettel claimed his second race win for Ferrari in Hungary last year, but was left to settle for P4 this time around after failing to pass Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo for third in the closing stages. The result extended Ferrari’s winless run in 2016, and allowed Red Bull to pull up just a point behind in the constructors’ championship. When asked by NBCSN if Ferrari now how to admit it was in a battle for second, Vettel said: “We never denied it! We have to fight Red Bull. “Our target is always

  • The Rangers are expecting a better Kevin Hayes next season

    While speaking about Kevin Hayes on a conference call, Jeff Gorton said that he expects Hayes to come into this season with a chip on his shoulder and "play really well." Gorton said that Hayes is a 6-5 center who has shown at times "how good he can be in this league." He said that Hayes' second year was similar in some ways to a lot of players who have a good first year and struggle the next year to meet expectations. Alain Vigneault said after the season that Hayes is part of the Rangers future but needs to step up. It's been said that Hayes is someone who needs to engage more on a consistent basis.

  • After Falling For His Own Myth, McGregor's Upcoming Rematch At 170lbs Is Taking A Heavy Risk

    As Conor McGregor looked on at Jose Aldo at UFC 200, he wanted to let everyone know he’s still here, that he’s made his mark. He’s was used to leaving marks on opponents, but his own myth has left its mark on him. It was a rare appearance before UFC 202 where he intends to right a wrong, a wrong he did to himself. No sooner had Aldo hit the floor than Conor brought the featherweight division to a standstill, with his ambitious desires for solidifying his legacy as a double UFC title holder. Those same desires were then stalled, somewhat by Dos Anjos’ injury, leading to McGregor’s invincibility being scuttled at the hands of Nate Diaz, but Conor also stifled his own ambitions. The idea was simple

  • Georgia Southern vacates three wins from 2013-14 seasons

    Georgia Southern has vacated three wins from the 2013-14 seasons stemming from a two-year investigation into its football program, the school has announced. The violations occurred when the Eagles played an ineligible athlete in three games over those seasons. The wins came against Savannah State and St. Francis in 2013 and Louisiana-Monroe in 2014. Georgia Southern’s 2014 Sun Belt championship will not be impacted by the ruling. “While it is disappointing to vacate these three victories, we get to put this chapter behind us,” Georgia Southern AD Tom Kleinlein said in a statement. “The student-athletes on this year’s football team, and teams moving forward, are not affected by the NCAA’s ruling

  • The science of sweat: Giants use technology to stay hydrated in the heat

    NEW YORK – Giants manager Bruce Bochy remembers a time when ballplayers would combat the heat by putting cabbage leaves under their hats. Methods are a little more sophisticated these days. The Giants might play in a crisper drawer at AT&T Park, but they can’t escape hothouse ballparks when they play outside their division in the summer months. This weekend at Yankee Stadium, temperatures reached the upper 90s with the usual East Coast humidity. Every player on the field was a Sultan of Sweat. And that’s where Geoff Head, the Giants’ sports science specialist, comes in. When it comes to hydration, Head’s head is soaking with knowledge.

    It’s been 10 days since George McPhee was officially announced as general manager of the expansion Las Vegas franchise. Based on a report Friday, it appears he’s looking to possibly add a familiar face from the Washington Capitals to his staff. Building a front office beyond his position is among the top priorities on his list of things to get done, as that franchise prepares for key dates like next year’s expansion draft. There is a long history between McPhee and Mahoney from their days with Washington. Ross Mahoney was hired by McPhee to be the director of amateur scouting for the Caps which he did for 16 seasons before becoming assistant general manager. If you thought the team drafted well

  • Report: Celtics agree to guaranteed contract with Demetrius Jackson, partially guaranteed deal with Ben Bentil

    The Celtics are slowly but surely taking care of their eight (!) 2016 draft picks. They’ll sign No. 3 pick Jaylen Brown. No. 16 pick Guerschon Yabusele and No. 23 pick Ante Zizic will remain overseas. The Nos. 31 and 35 picks were traded for a future first-rounder on draft night. And Boston has reached terms with No. 45 pick Demetrius Jackson and No. 51 pick Ben Bentil. Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe: As second-rounders, neither Jackson nor Bentil count against the cap until signed. So, the Celtics — with a little cap space plus the room exception and minimum-salary exceptions available — might wait a while to officially sign either player. Jackson would give Boston 16 players — one more
