  • MLB trade rumors: The dangers of potentially acquiring Jonathan Lucroy

    It can’t be coincidence, can it? Within minutes of the Detroit Tigers clinching a massive three-game sweep over the Boston Red Sox, Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reported that the Tigers were talking to the Milwaukee Brewers about potentially acquiring catcher Jonathan Lucroy. Detroit is one of several teams involved in the Lucroy sweepstakes, but a late arrival, as many clubs (including the Cleveland Indians) have been linked with the Brewers for some time. Earlier this week, Kyle profiled Lucroy and the various ways he could make the Tigers a better team. You should click over and read the entire piece, but I’ll summarize: Lucroy is a very good catcher. Trading for him is not a slam dunk, though.

  • This video of Lionel Messi in training is just glorious (Luis Suárez nutmeg included)

    Lionel Messi is awesome. Not only did he cut his vacation short so he could rejoin the Barcelona squad a week earlier to train with his teammates in England and play every friendly match in preseason, he is also using the training sessions  to show just how amazing he is. These are just 140 seconds of greatness. Messi is laughing in the Rondos as he makes his teammates look like fools, he's dribbling Mathieu like he's not even there, and he's even nutmegging his good friend Luis Suárez just because why not. He's also scoring goals on little posts, because every goalpost is big enough for Messi. Just wish Messi was not blonde. But hey, you can't always get what you want. Still, Messi, you're awesome.

  • How Nick Foles’ Release Just Made Ryan Fitzpatrick A Nice Chunk Of Change

    Nick Foles might be the dumbest man in American, but at least one other NFL quarterback should be thanking him for it. Foles, the Los Angeles Rams quarterback, reportedly was released by the team Wednesday at his request. The 27-year-old was set to make up to $8.75 million this season, per Spotrac, but has been upset since the team selected quarterback Jared Goff with the No. 1 overall selection in the NFL draft earlier this year. Apparently getting paid nearly $9 million to live in L.A. — where it’s 75 and sunny all the time — for a year just wasn’t good enough for the now ex-Ram. Meanwhile, ESPN’s Ed Werder dropped this little nugget regarding the ripple effect Foles’ situation had on free

  • Huge If True: Will Canucks take on Evander Kane?

    Last week in this space, we discussed whether the Vancouver Canucks would be able to trade for a scoring winger. At the time, though, the idea that Evander Kane would be the target was a little farfetched. Kane was arrested late last week for allegedly harassing three women, and potentially choking and pulling the hair of one of them.

    It’s hard to believe there was a time when we were ever concerned about the athletes who wouldn’t be participating in the 2016 Summer Olympics.

No matter how you look at it, there is a laundry list of issues surrounding the Rio Games.

The tournament will boast the strongest field of any golf tournament in 30 years on a lengthy, par-70 layout that should set up well for some of the game's biggest names and biggest hitters -- like Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, and Dustin Johnson.

  • Pat Riley: Dion Waiters ‘is not a room-exception player’

    The Heat signed Dion Waiters to a room-exception contract. Heat president Pat Riley, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald: “Dion is not a Room Exception player. He wanted to play for the Miami Heat and chose to forgo other more lucrative financial opportunities to be a part of our championship organization. We are very honored that he made the commitment to come to South Florida and sign with us. Dion is young, athletic and explosive, which fits in with our roster. He will add a great dimension for us at the off-guard spot. I really like the depth and versatility that we now have in our perimeter positions. Welcome aboard Dion!” I’m really curious about those “more lucrative financial opportunities.”

  • David Wright is not alone in naming his child after Shea Stadium

    New York Mets third baseman David Wright and his wife, Molly, welcomed a daughter into the world over the weekend and named her Olivia Shea Wright, leading to mass speculation in the media in New York that the Wrights gave their daughter a middle name in honor of the stadium the Mets called home from 1964-2008. The Wall Street Journal went to the trouble of examining baby names in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut over the past 40 years to see how many people possibly named their kids Shea and if there might be a correlation to the Mets and Shea Stadium.

  • Video: Matt Cain launches a three-run home run

    Madison Bumgarner isn’t the only Giants pitcher who can rake. Matt Cain crushed a three-run home run during Tuesday’s game against the Giants. Cain stepped to the plate with runners on the corner and one out against Reds starter Cody Reed in the bottom of the second inning. Reed threw a 1-1 fastball down the middle and Cain hit it about 20 rows back in the left field seats. It’s Cain’s first homer of the season, his first since 2012, and the seventh of his 12-year career. He still has some work to catch up to Bumgarner, who has two homers this year and 13 in his career. On the pitching side of things, Cain got the win against the Reds on Tuesday night, giving up four runs on six hits and a walk

  • Canucks president doesn’t rule out acquiring a player with Evander Kane’s type of history

    Trevor Linden didn’t mention Evander Kane by name, because, well, you know… But the Vancouver Canucks’ president of hockey operations sure didn’t close the door on acquiring a player with Kane’s type of history. You can listen to the audio of Linden’s interview with TSN 1040 here. (The Kane discussion starts at around the 3:10 mark.) The main takeaway is that Linden refused to say that a player with a history of getting into trouble with the police would absolutely not be welcome on the Canucks. “I think with any situation, they’re all unique to themselves,” Linden said, before warning against the temptation to jump to conclusions prior to knowing all the facts. “Ultimately we’d prefer not to

  • Reserve Ohio State DL Dylan Thompson academically ineligible for the fall

    “Do something. And underline that. Do something.” Those were the words of Urban Meyer back in May when discussing the status of Dylan Thompson with his Ohio State football program.  Fastforward two months, and Thompson did indeed do something, albeit it’s a something that’s not even remotely positive. At the Big Ten Media Days Tuesday, the OSU head coach announced that Thompson is academically ineligible for the fall semester.  That means the defensive lineman likely won’t play at all in 2016, and it could mean it’s the end of the road for the player in Columbus. Thompson came to the Buckeyes as a three-star 2014 signee, rated as the No. 21 strongside defensive end in the country and the No.

Since Berry has not signed his franchise tag, and is therefore not under contract, he cannot be fined by the club. Berry’s recent battle with Hodgkin’s disease played a role in negotiations, with NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reporting that the Chiefs wanted Berry to pay for a disability insurance policy that would have named the team as beneficiary.
