  • Lexi Thompson teams with Bryson DeChambeau in men's PGA Tour event

    It's been a rare thing in Bryson DeChambeau's recent golf history that he has not been the biggest draw in his own group. It looks like that will be the case, however, at the Franklin Templeton Shootout in December when he is joined in the team event by Lexi Thompson. The 21-year-old Thompson is the first female to play in the unofficial PGA Tour event since Annika Sorenstam in 2006. She's the first to play in any type of PGA Tour event since Michelle Wie in 2008. The format for the Franklin Templeton Shootout is a three-round combination of alternate shot, scramble and best ball. It consists of 12 two-golfer teams and will include Justin Thomas, Smylie Kaufman, Kevin Chappell and Luke Donald.

  • Kevin Durant And Warriors: Not As Golden A Marriage As It Seems?

    Notice that of the players currently on the roster, only a small handful are guaranteed to be with the team in the 2017–18 season. Durant is widely expected to decline his player option for next season to become an unrestricted free agent, and sign a new max deal that will allow him to earn more money due to the expected rise of the salary cap again next summer. Durant has no desire to go anywhere else; he did not sign with Golden State for this to be a one-year trial. So here’s where it gets tricky for the Warriors: this season will be Durant’s 10th in the league, meaning he’s eligible for the “max max” deal in free agency. The projected maximum salaries for the 2017–18 season, based on the

    For a team that’s supposed to be cursed, everything seems to be coming up in the Chicago Cubs’ favor right now. The Cubs will not only enter their first World Series in 71 years as the overwhelming favorite, but they’ll also do so with a player who was expected to miss the entire season. Joe Maddon then said Kyle Schwarber would be the team’s DH in Game 1. Relief pitcher Rob Zastryzny who hadn’t appeared thus far for the Cubs this postseason.

  • What Sprint Cup drivers said after the Chase race at Talladega

    Joey Logano won the Hellmann’s 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, advancing to the Round of 8 in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Here’s what the field of drivers had to say about their results at Talladega: JOEY LOGANO – Winner:  “It’s never a layup here at Talladega. It’s always close. You never get a big lead … (Crew chief) Todd (Gordon) made some good adjustments during the race and found some speed in the car, so that was pretty neat to see some of that. We got that track position and just hung onto it. I was able to stay on the bottom and try to run the bottom and keep everyone in line, and that worked out really well. Kevin (Harvick) did a good job with that, which ultimately got us all a great

  • Wikipedia had to lock Trent Baalke's page because 49ers fans won't stop vandalizing it

    Hopefully Trent Baalke doesn't google himself. The general manager of the 49ers — and target of much fan vitriol after the team's 1-6 start — has had his Wikipedia page vandalized so many times over the past two days that Wikipedia put a temporary ban on edits.  The Mercury News noticed on Monday that someone had altered Baalke's page to read: "Despite the incredibly awful job he has done, and continued success in embarrassing and destroying this organization, gutless Jed York refuses to fire Baalke. An 11 year old can see that Baalke is running this team into the ground, but York doesn't care as long as he continues to make a profit." But that was hardly the first or the last edit. The page's

    Jurgen Klopp isn’t having any of your title talk. After Liverpool beat West Bromwich Albion 2-1 on Saturday at Anfield and Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City and Manchester United all dropped points this weekend, plenty of people are talking up Liverpool’s chances of winning the Premier League title this season. With nine games of the season gone, Liverpool sit joint-top with Arsenal and Man City on 20 points with Chelsea and Tottenham just behind them on 19 points. It is tight at the top but whatever people are saying, Klop isn’t bothered. “I don’t care. It is normal in football that when you are in a good position people start talking a little more positive. I don’t recognize so much what

  • Comeback Canucks? Not against the Ducks

    The Vancouver Canucks have made a habit of third-period comebacks early this season. Playing with the lead, though? Not so much. Despite their early penchant for late-game magic — certainly not a sustainable method of winning in the long-term — the Canucks were unable to score a come-from-behind win against the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday. Instead, they lost 4-2, as Nick Ritchie and Corey Perry scored late in the third period to nullify any chance of a Vancouver comeback. Henrik Sedin had gotten the Canucks back into a tied game early in the final period, before the Ducks killed off a Vancouver power play and then surged ahead for good. It’s Vancouver’s first regulation loss of the season. In six

  • Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh says replay decision was the ‘worst call he’s ever seen’

    Jim Harbaugh has been known for using a bit of hyperbole from time to time but it sounds as though he was really, really, really upset at a call in the final few minutes of No. 2 Michigan’s 41-8 win over Illinois on Saturday. Wolverines quarterback John O’Korn had completed a third-and-nine pass to Drake Harris that officials had marked short of the first down by nearly two yards. Harbaugh quickly challenged the spot but Big Ten replay officials upheld the call to force a fourth down decision that was a little longer than it should have been according to the coach. “I’ve never seen a worse call in the game of football,” Harbaugh said at his Monday press conference. “My understanding of the rules

  • Sainz stars with charge to P6 at COTA, enjoys late battle with childhood hero Alonso

    Carlos Sainz Jr. produced one of the stand-out displays in Sunday’s United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas to finish sixth, matching his best result of the 2016 Formula 1 season so far. Sainz qualified 10th for Toro Rosso on Saturday at the Circuit of The Americas, but rose up to P8 in the early stages after Nico Hulkenberg and Valtteri Bottas dropped back due to contact. Sainz managed to jump Felipe Massa at the second round of pit stops to run seventh before Max Verstappen and Kimi Raikkonen retired, handing the Spaniard fifth. After seeing off pressure from Massa, Sainz went wheel-to-wheel with his childhood racing hero, Fernando Alonso, in the final two laps, but was unable to keep the

The ex-NBA star filed the complete 2008 contract he signed with the Washington Wizards in his family law case ... a contract which was supposed to pay $111 mil over 6 years.

  • MLS Power Rankings: Going to the playoffs edition

    As we prepare for the 2016 MLS Cup Playoffs, which kick off Wednesday night, we take one last shot at MLS power rankings, featuring only the 12 times still fighting in the postseason. Which are the sides most likely to represent the East and the West in MLS Cup 2016? Let’s talk it out… Eastern Conference 1. New York Red Bulls — Bradley Wright-Phillips scored 24 goals this season, including 14 in RBNY’s last 12 games. Sacha Kljestan finished the season with 19 assists, but should have had 20. Not to bury the lead here, but they haven’t lost a game since July 3 (9 wins, 6 draws). That’s an absurd run capped off with four straight wins to finish the regular season.

    An offensive defenseman, Dan Girardi is not. His last goal prior to this weekend? Nov. 12, 2015. It’s been a while. Almost an entire year now. But in his return to the New York Rangers lineup on Sunday, the 32-year-old Girardi was able to bust his scoring slump on a slap shot from the blue line that beat Arizona Coyotes goalie Louis Domingue. The Rangers eventually won by a final score of 3-2, with Girardi’s goal counting as the winner. He scored only twice last season, and hasn’t scored more than five goals in a single season since 2009-10.

According to multiple reports, Cespedes is expected to opt out of his three-year contract and become a free agent. There is mutual interest in having him return to the Mets. However, "There is no urgency," a source told Olney, who says the Mets are open to effectively updating his current deal with another opt-out clause.

    The NBA just can’t shake Metta World Peace as a player. Despite the Lakers’ reported intention of waiving World Peace and making him an assistant coach, they’ll keep him, Thomas Robinson and Nick Young into the regular season. After waiving Yi Jianlian at his request, they’ll also waive Anthony Brown. Lakers release: The Los Angeles Lakers have waived forward Anthony Brown, it was announced today by General Manager Mitch Kupchak. Brown was the No. 34 pick just last year, but he didn’t show much as a rookie and is already 24. There was no need to keep him over more valuable players – like Robinson.

  • NASCAR says Gibbs’ sandbagging strategy was legal at Talladega; didn’t violate 100 percent rule

    A NASCAR official affirmed Monday morning that Joe Gibbs Racing didn’t violate the “100 percent rule” by electing to run at the back of the pack Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway. Because they didn’t need strong finishes to advance to the Round of 8, the Toyotas of Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth dropped to the rear at the start of the Hellmann’s 500 and remained there for most of 500 miles. Kenseth finished 28th, Edwards 29th, Busch 30th. The NASCAR rulebook requires drivers “to race at 100 percent of their ability,” but NASCAR executive vice president and chief racing development officer Steve O’Donnell said the JGR cars didn’t run afoul of the law because they pursued a strategy.

    Well, that didn't take long. By "that," I really mean "Tom Brady taking over the NFL on his official middle finger to the entire league tour." It's been three games since Brady returned from his four-game Deflategate suspension and he's already established himself as the best quarterback of the 2016 season. After another successful outing against the Steelers on Sunday, Brady has finally thrown enough passes to qualify for official NFL passing statistics (which MassLive's Kevin Duffy first pointed out). He's already on top of every meaningful category. Through three games, Brady's gone 76 of 101 for 1,004 yards, eight touchdowns, zero interceptions, and a 132.6 passer rating. Let's take a look

    Oklahoma’s defense has not had the best of weeks. The Sooners gave up 59 points on Saturday to Texas Tech and allowed quarterback Patrick Mahomes to set an FBS record for total offense as he did just about whatever he wanted in the passing game. While the team ultimately won the game, giving up that many points and yards has naturally led to some questions about Oklahoma’s defensive coordinator. Head coach Bob Stoops isn’t having any of that however, and it’s not just because the coordinator in question is his brother Mike Stoops. “It’s all of us, too. It isn’t just my brother and I. It’s also coach [Kerry] Cooks, coach [Calvin] Thibodeaux, coach [Tim] Kish, everybody in there,” Stoops said Monday,
