    Daniel Ricciardo, Max Verstappen, Nico Hulkenberg, Valtteri Bottas and Sergio Perez have all avoided grid drops for Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix despite failing to lap within 107% of the fastest time in Q1.

    The game in 100 words (or less): The LA Galaxy are firing on all cylinders these days, having extended their winning streak to four games (six games unbeaten) with a 2-1 victory over the defending MLS Cup champion Portland Timbers at Providence Park on Saturday.

  • Georgia Southern vacates three wins from 2013-14 seasons

    Georgia Southern has vacated three wins from the 2013-14 seasons stemming from a two-year investigation into its football program, the school has announced. The violations occurred when the Eagles played an ineligible athlete in three games over those seasons. The wins came against Savannah State and St. Francis in 2013 and Louisiana-Monroe in 2014. Georgia Southern’s 2014 Sun Belt championship will not be impacted by the ruling. “While it is disappointing to vacate these three victories, we get to put this chapter behind us,” Georgia Southern AD Tom Kleinlein said in a statement. “The student-athletes on this year’s football team, and teams moving forward, are not affected by the NCAA’s ruling

We've already seen a handful of trades go down in recent weeks, most notably involving James Shields and Drew Pomeranz, and you can be sure many more moves are on the way. 11:26am ET Apparently Andrew Cashner is the hot name of the day, because Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Giants have also taken a look. Of course, Heyman also reports that the Giants are more focused on relievers. He also throws out there that the Dodgers are "aiming ever higher" and mentions Rays starters and ... Chris Sale.

According to a report from Brendan F. Quinn of MLive, Penn State will use the Palestra as its home gym for the Jan. 7, 2017 Big Ten game against Michigan State. It is the only time the two teams are scheduled to play during Big Ten season and Penn’s home gym will offer a unique setting for the game. Since the capacity of the Palestra is 8,722, it should make for a fun atmosphere for both programs since this will be a game both fan bases will likely want to attend.

  • Report: Las Vegas NHL team asked permission to speak with Capitals assistant GM

    It’s been 10 days since George McPhee was officially announced as general manager of the expansion Las Vegas franchise. Based on a report Friday, it appears he’s looking to possibly add a familiar face from the Washington Capitals to his staff. Building a front office beyond his position is among the top priorities on his list of things to get done, as that franchise prepares for key dates like next year’s expansion draft. There is a long history between McPhee and Mahoney from their days with Washington. Ross Mahoney was hired by McPhee to be the director of amateur scouting for the Caps which he did for 16 seasons before becoming assistant general manager. If you thought the team drafted well

  • New York Giants' Damon Harrison: 3-4 to 4-3 transition has been 'seamless'

    When the New York Giants signed defensive tackle Damon Harrison early on in free agency, they knew exactly what they were getting. Harrison had established himself as one of the elite run-stuffing interior linemen in the NFL, which is exactly what they were looking to add alongside fellow defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins. But in addition to switching his locker-room and jersey color, Harrison is also facing a change in defensive systems and philosophies. With the New York Jets, Harrison found a comfort level in the 3-4, but will now have to switch to the 4-3 under defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. No problem, says Harrison. Thus far, the transition has been “seamless.” “The more and more

But aside from everything that will seem new for Jeff Gordon about ending an eighth-month retirement this weekend, there is one comforting element. “I knew it was Indianapolis,” he said Friday morning. “I felt like if there was one place that I was capable of doing it, it would be here.” Gordon will start the next two races in place of Dale Earnhardt Jr., who is recovering from concussion-like symptoms.

"For a young guy, it's all about situations. He's trying to figure out what's the best fit and how he'd work with the Knicks." In four years at Stanford, Randle averaged 16.5 points per game and shot 42.8 percent from the field. He became the school's all-time leading scorer during his final season.  Keith

This is perhaps a relief to the fringe contingent of the squad with James Rodriguez and Isco both having had uncertain futures earlier in the summer.

Things really heated up with talks of moving next to the New York Mets with a new arena in Queens, but apparently that’s not all. New York Newsday reports that the Islanders have met “several times” with the New York Racing Association to build a new arena in Belmont. This would mean that the Islanders would (wait for it) bring the team back to the Nassau area. It was emphasized that such talks were in early stages and that the ownership group is “weighing multiple options, including remaining in Brooklyn.” When it came to the rumors
