  • 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.

  • Stephen Curry disappointed All-Star Game will not be coming to his hometown Charlotte in 2017

    The NBA did the right thing pulling the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte in the wake of North Carolina’s “bathroom law.” A number of NBA teams came out publicly to back the NBA’s decision (something that was discussed with the owners at the Board of Governor’s meeting in Las Vegas a week ago. However, players — ever so concerned about their brand — have been far more cautious in their response. That includes Charlotte’s hometown hero Stephen Curry, so spoke to ESPN’s SportsCenter from the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe, Calif. Here is what Olympian Paul George told Brian Windhorst of ESPN (via Ramona Shelburne). “I’m huge on keeping your word. I’m not necessarily

  • 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.

  • 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. Rodriguez is owed

  • Stephen Curry: “I wasn’t too happy with the situation of having to pull out of the” Olympics

    Right now, Stephen Curry is basking in the 78-degree weather at beautiful Lake Tahoe — right on the California/Nevada border — getting ready to play in the weekend’s American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament (which will be broadcast on NBC). Curry pulled out of the Rio Games during the NBA Finals, but said he isn’t happy about it in a Facebook Live chat from Tahoe (hat tip the Mercury News for the transcription). “I wasn’t too happy with the situation of having to pull out of the Games… I wish I would be able to play in those. “When I got hurt in the playoffs and knew that the recovery time over the course of summer was going to be important for me to get ready for next year, I tried to give Coach K (Mike Krzyzewski) and Mr. Colangelo (Jerry Colangelo) and the whole USA staff more time to figure out what they need to figure out for the roster.

  • Don’t believe the calendar, the Yankees are running out of time

    Because while there are 66 games remaining in the season, the truth is that there are only eight until the Aug. 1 non-waiver trade deadline. Eight games for the Yankees to declare themselves in or out of the wild-card chase; eight for ownership and management to become buyers or sellers — or to choose the middle ground — on the market. Except for the 2016 Yankees, for whom every play, decision and game outcome has for weeks been viewed through the prism of the 4 p.m. deadline on the first day of the next month. Which is why Friday’s 3-2 victory over the Giants in The Bronx — in which the Yankees scored the eventual winning run in the bottom of the eighth after Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller had conspired to fritter away a 2-0 lead through six innings the team had earned against Madison Bumgarner — was so exhilarating for those who dare to dream of a playoff berth.

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.

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

    Stephen Nesbitt of the Post-Gazette reports that the Pirates have no plans to delay or cancel their Jung Ho Kang bobblehead giveaway. It’s currently scheduled for August 11. Kang, as you likely remember, is currently under investigation for sexual assault. He is alleged to have given a woman a drink which caused her to lose consciousness. He is alleged to have then sexually assaulted her. The allegations say this occurred in Chicago during the Pirates’ visit to play the Cubs last month. Kang has not been arrested and, obviously, is still eligible to play, as Major League Baseball will almost certainly wait until the investigation has progressed to act under the league’s domestic violence policy.

  • Did the Knicks make the right head coaching choice?

    Keith Schlosser, SNY.TV Twitter | Archive For back to back summers now, Phil Jackson has preached a change in culture, attitude, and personnel. Last year, the team not only opted to retain Derek Fisher after the worst season in franchise history, but also failed to make the splash many were hoping for. Reeling in reliable role players to surround Carmelo Anthony with did not result in the change that was necessary. While the Knicks didn't come away with a bonafide superstar in Kevin Durant or Dwyane Wade this summer, they still started the offseason off with a bang. Acquiring a 27 year old Derrick Rose, who is hungry for redemption with pride on the line (and with only one season remaining on

    With Hall of Fame inductions this Sunday, baseball fans are once again face-to-face with the game’s ongoing moral dilemma: What to do about PED users and even suspected PED users. A Hall of Fame without the likes of Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens seems wrong to some fans but rightful and just to others. Likewise, a player like Mike Piazza, who will be inducted Sunday along with Ken Griffey Jr., had a tougher road into Cooperstown because some voters thought he could have cheated.

  • Buster Olney comes up with nine ideas to “improve” baseball. They’re mostly bad.

    Buster Olney and the Mike & Mike radio crew at ESPN did a little thought experiment about how to improve baseball. It was partially audience-sourced and the entire idea was based on something ESPN did about the NFL last week. They came up with nine suggestions to improve the game. Given that (a) baseball is fine; (b) Mike and Mike is a talk radio show that spends far more time dealing with football than baseball; and (c) fan-sourcing anything is going to be a dicey proposition, especially when a huge number of those fans are football fans who dig talk radio, you can imagine the quality of these ideas. Short version: they ain’t that great. A rundown. 1. Reduce games to seven innings This is bad
