  • Jose Fernandez’s death is, sadly, not without precedent

    As we still try to process the death of Marlins star Jose Fernandez in a boating accident, we can’t help but be reminded that it is, sadly, not without precedent. The example which most obviously and immediately springs to mind are the deaths of Cleveland Indians pitchers Steve Olin and Tim Crews, who were killed in a boating accident on Little Lake Nellie in Clermont, Florida during spring training in 1993. Olin was only 27 and had four years in the bigs, all with Cleveland, under his belt. Three years ago, Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com caught up with the families of Crews and Olin — their widows and their children — and told us about how they have all coped with their shocking deaths over the previous two decades.

  • 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.

Goals from Chris Smalling, Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba (his first-ever goal for United) rocked the Foxes and despite Demarai Gray‘s stunner giving them hope in the second half, United always looked fairly comfortable. United’s captain and talisman Wayne Rooney was left out of the starting lineup and after at least the first half display he may find it tough to get back into Mourinho’s

  • Phil Mickelson Criticizes PGA Tour's Setup of Tour Championship

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • The PGA Tour has a serious football problem

    EAST LAKE, Ga.—Three hundred thirty-seven miles west of Atlanta’s East Lake Golf Club, give or take a five-iron, the Georgia Bulldogs spent most of Saturday afternoon getting pummeled by Ole Miss. At the same time, about 680 miles north, an unspectacular Notre Dame team prepared to kick off against an equally uninspiring Duke squad. Like the moon shaping the tide, these two games, and others like them, have had an unseen but dramatic impact on the end of the PGA Tour season. Instead, the Tour Championship, as it always is this time of year, takes a back seat—a far back seat—to the NFL and college football.

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

    ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun presented an interesting column that spotlighted an admittedly “tired narrative” while still ultimately pumping up Crosby at Ovechkin’s expense. 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. Ovechkin may not have had the greatest game of his life on Saturday, but watching that game, was the takeaway really that he let Russia down?

  • 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.

  • Second-half dominance powers No. 10 A&M past No. 17 Arkansas, 45-24

    No. 10 Texas A&M grabbed a late touchdown run from quarterback Trevor Knight in the first half and shut down No. 17 Arkansas in the second half of a 45-24 victory in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Aggies shut down the Razorbacks in the second half and scored 28 points on offense to improve to 4-0 and head into October thinking about making a run at the SEC West title (and potentially for real this time). With the game tied at 17-17, Arkansas put together a draining 89-yard drive on 19 plays, but it was the Texas A&M defense that held strong down by the goal line. Just as they had done twice in the first half, Texas A&M prevented Arkansas from punching the football across the goal line,

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.

    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.
