  • 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.

  • Larry Bird always knew his style of play would break his body, but he couldn't stop

    This summer will mark the 25th anniversary of Larry Bird’s retirement from professional basketball. The Legend remains one of the most revered and decorated players in the history of the sport — a 12-time All-Star, three-time champion, a three-time Most Valuable Player and one of the greatest shooters ever to set foot on a basketball court. Thirteen seasons of hard-charging play against some of the best big men and wingmen the NBA had to offer — plus another two full seasons of postseason games, which most players will tell you take an even greater toll on you than regular-season contests — did a number on the Boston Celtics magician’s body, most notably his back, forcing him to step away from the sport at age 35, just 209 points shy of 22,000 for his illustrious career.

    Mets GM Sandy Alderson should have at least one or two reasonable trades on the table for OF Jay Bruce, according to teams that have talked with the Mets. However, because he's comfortable with slow-playing the free-agent market for relief pitchers, Alderson appears totally fine holding off on dealing Bruce for an arm, while letting the outfield market play out and revisiting his options during December. "Things are generally slow," Alderson explained Tuesday, talking to reporters. "Hopefully things start to loosen up a little bit. ...Clubs are still trying to figure out exactly what they think is exactly the best way to go. The contours of the market are still a little bit vague, so you don't

    Arsenal, the kings of the impressive wins in the European games that don’t matter as much, with resounding victories in the hopeless second legs and such, smashed FC Basel 4-1 on Tuesday to clinch Group A in the 2016-17 UEFA Champions League. Going into the sixth and final round of group play, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain both sat on 11 points. PSG, however, controlled the tiebreaker on head-to-head away goals, since the teams were tied on head-to-head points after two draws, as well as goal difference and goals scored.

  • MLB says there is no “Shoehi Otani exception”

    The Yankees signing of Aroldis Chapman late Wednesday night came as something of a surprise. Yes, we knew that Chapman was going to break the bank and likely set a record as the highest paid relief pitcher in history, but seeing it in black and white like that is still rather jarring. In the coming days, many people who attempt to analyze and contextualize this signing will do so by pointing to the 2016 playoffs and the unconventional use of relievers by Terry Francona and the Indians and Joe Maddon of the Cubs. Yes, Andrew Miller and, to some extent, Chapman himself were used unconventionally in the 2016 playoffs, but not long into the 2017 season we will see that as an exception, not the rule.

  • The Cavs took the Water Bottle Flip Challenge while blowing out the Knicks

    LeBron James keeps his eyes on the prize. The Cleveland Cavaliers barely broke a sweat in dismantling the New York Knicks on Wednesday night, leading by double-figures for the entire second half and by as many as 34 as they cruised to their East-leading 15th victory of the season. With the game well in hand before the start of the fourth quarter, the Cavs’ top guns — LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson — spent the bulk of the final frame chilling on the bench, looking for something more interesting than garbage time to occupy their minds.

  • Wings activate Howard off IR following six-game absence

    The Red Wings have played pretty well lately — 5-1-2 in their last eight — and got some good news on Wednesday, as veteran netminder Jimmy Howard was activated off injured reserve. Howard has been out since Nov. 25 with a groin injury, suffered early in a game against the Devils. He’s missed the last six games as a result, but will — per NHL.com — take part in Thursday’s practice and presumably be ready to dress in time for Friday’s game against the Blue Jackets. Howard was playing very well prior to getting hurt, posting a 1.82 GAA and .940 save percentage in 12 appearances, 11 of those being starts. His return means it’s back to AHL Grand Rapids for Jared Coreau, who was recalled a couple weeks

  • LeBron James, Cavaliers do water-bottle challenge on bench during blowout win over Knicks (video)

    LeBron James did his part – scoring 25 points (on just 10 shots!), dishing seven assists and grabbing six rebounds – to give the Cavaliers an insurmountable lead over the Knicks through three quarters. So, he didn’t even play in the fourth quarter. As Cleveland put the finishing touches on its 126-94 win, boredom set it. LeBron and a few of his teammates tried to flip a water bottle and have it land upright on the floor. LeBron even dove onto the court to pull the bottle back in after an errant flip! No, Phil Jackson should not have used the word “posse” to describe LeBron’s business associates and friends. But this is the most disrespectful thing I’ve ever seen – and I love it.
