  • Matt Holliday made sure Yankees can never trade him to one former team

    New York Yankees free-agent signee Matt Holliday has, and though his chosen profession essentially guarantees he’ll return to the city of his apparent disdain temporarily, the negotiating power of his agent has reportedly guaranteed he won’t return there permanently or work for his former employer again. As we learned on Wednesday, Holliday’s one-year, $13M contract with the Yankees reportedly includes one very interesting and unique provision. It’s essentially a one-team no-trade clause that prevents the Yankees from trading Holliday to the Oakland A’s, where he played during the 2009 season.

Dock ‘em. Manage to go from whistle to whistle without engaging a defender? Uh-oh. That’s violation of the “no-touch” rule. This standard applies in a game or even in practice. Guess they mean it when they say they want to be physical. “You’ve got to touch something,” Howard said. “Sometimes as an offensive lineman it happens that you can’t touch a guy

  • Gregg Popovich calls coaching Tim Duncan-less Spurs a ‘refreshing’ and ‘fun’ challenge

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP)–  For so many years, the San Antonio Spurs have been defined by their consistency, an unprecedented level of stability that has brought five championships and established the organization as a model franchise in professional sports. The colors don’t change. The coach doesn’t change. The core never changed. After 20 years and those five titles, change has finally come to San Antonio. Tim Duncan, the tone setter from the moment he was drafted in 1997, retired last summer. Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili have taken reduced roles this season, and the Spurs brought in seven new faces as part of a rare roster shuffle as they try to retool around Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge. “It’s

We’ll include a full list of seeded and unseeded teams at the bottom so you can pair ’em up however you like, but let’s start with our best ideas. Remember: Teams can neither be drawn against teams from their own domestic leagues, or against the other advancing team from their group stage quartets. Let’s begin with the reigning champions. Real Madrid is unseeded, and cannot draw Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, and Borussia Dortmund.
