  • Jason Kipnis wants no part of Rougned Odor after hard slide

  • U.S. Soccer sends strong – and troubling – message with Hope Solo suspension

    The one who has brought more negative attention to the United States women’s national team than every other player in its long and laureled history combined? On Wednesday, she was formally suspended from the women’s national team for six months, a year and a half after she was suspended for 30 days when her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, was arrested for driving a women’s national team van under the influence with Solo, reportedly also inebriated, in the passenger seat – an incident she failed to disclose to the federation before it was reported in the media.

  • Lane Johnson says he'll sue supplement company over suspension

    Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson first complained about the NFLPA’s lack of supplement testing after his positive test triggered a 10-game suspension. Now he says he’ll sue the supplement company that he says sold him the amino acids that led to the positive test. Johnson had $25 million in guaranteed money remaining on his deal, but the positive test meant none of that money is guaranteed anymore due to a clause in his contract.

  • Red Sox place Andrew Benintendi on the disabled list with a sprained knee

    This is one of those deals where you could’ve just read the headline and had the whole story, but the handbook says I have to put something in this space, so here we are. In other news, back-to-back posts with the names “Benintendi” and “Rzepczynski” is kind of fun. OK, fine. The deal with Benintendi is that he sprained his knee while running the bases in last night’s win over the Rays. He had an MRI on the knee but the results are not yet known. Chris Young will see the bulk of Benintendi’s playing time in the outfield. Infielder Marco Hernandez was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to fill the roster spot. Benintendi is hitting .324/.365/.485 with a homer and ten RBI in 21 games.

  • Aly Raisman on How the Final Five Reacted to Gabby Douglas Getting Bullied

    During the Olympic games, Final Five member Gabby Douglas watched herself be torn apart by internet trolls who dubbed her “Crabby Gabby” for not appearing supportive enough of her teammates during the all-around team competition (Douglas reportedly wasn’t as smiley as her other teammates in the stands) or patriotic enough during the medal ceremony (Douglas did not have her hand on her heart). Now, with the games behind them, Final Five team captain Aly Raisman opened up to E! News about what she, Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, and Madison Kocian were doing behind the scenes to help their teammate.

  • WATCH: Young WWE fans nail adorable impressions of Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman

    Imitation is the greatest form of flattery. If that's the case, then Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman should be very, very flattered. These young WWE fans recently acted as the massive wrestler/MMA fighter and his advocate with the young Heyman showcasing an incredible impression that should make Paul E. proud. The video was impressive enough to get the attention of Paul Wight (better known as The Big Show), who posted it to his Facebook page. Suplex City, indeed! While the kid doing Heyman clearly nailed it, don't sleep on the Lesnar impression. It's much harder to get gestures and body language right without doing a voice, and this kid did it spot on -- crazy eyes included. I know it's hard to

  • Geno Smith publicly named Fitzpatrick's backup

    Geno Smith is still No. 2 for the New York Jets. After previously being vague about the situation a few days ago, coach Todd Bowles said Smith will play after starter Ryan Fitzpatrick in the preseason game against the Giants on Saturday night. "You always prepare the same way," Smith said after practice Wednesday. "It's really no different. I'm just continuing to work hard." There had been some uncertainty about the pecking order of the backups after Bryce Petty had a good performance and Smith struggled against Washington. On Sunday, Bowles wouldn't say for sure what the rotation of the quarterbacks would be this week. He did say then that he was clear about the four quarterbacks on the roster,

  • Why Joey Bosa better hope the Chargers' offer still stands

    On Wednesday, Shutdown Corner’s Frank Schwab did a great job of updating the Joey Bosa situation — namely how the San Diego Chargers made this standoff public and ugly. Oh, sure, these are the Chargers we’re talking about, and calling them a well-run organization might not be able to be done with a straight face. Perhaps the Chargers, coming off a 4-12 nightmare of a season, could have found better ways to get this thing done — especially in an era where the draft-pick holdout has gone the way of the Edsel.

  • Megan Rapinoe critical of Hope Solo calling Sweden 'cowards'

    RIO DE JANEIRO -- Megan Rapinoe, one of the most senior players on the U.S. women's soccer team, has criticized Hope Solo's disparaging comments about Sweden following the Americans' early departure from the Rio Olympics. Solo called the Swedes "a bunch of cowards" for focusing on defense rather than attacking the three-time defending champion U.S. team. Rapinoe told NBC Sports on Thursday she was "really disappointed" about Solo's comments. "Let's inspire, let's be badass, let's be fierce, let's be competitive. But we're gracious and we're humble, and we play the game a certain way, whether we win or lose," Rapinoe said. "And we've been on the winning side quite a bit, and when we find ourselves

  • Blizzard burned its biggest fans with World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor

    Warlords of Draenor, World of Warcraft’s fifth expansion pack, was met with buzz and approval of fans and critics alike when it released in November 2014. I was one of those critics, laying effusive praise (and an extremely high score to match) at the expansion’s feet in my review. It wasn’t just player and critical feedback, either. That love for the expansion showed in subscriber numbers, which crested over 10 million once more for the first time in years. But then something happened. I stopped playing three or four months after Warlords of Draenor released. And I was far from alone. In the summer of 2015, World of Warcraft’s subscriber numbers hit a nine-year low, dropping from over 10 million

  • Yoenis Cespedes says he won't opt out of Mets contract

After singlehandedly taking the Mets to the playoffs with a spectacular second half, it was assumed Cespedes’ price range on the market would exceed what the Mets were willing to pay. In order to bring back Cespedes, the Mets needed to get creative with their deal.

  • Jerry Jones: Ezekiel Elliott's pot dispensary visit 'just not good'

    SEATTLE -- Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones was not pleased to see a video on TMZ that appeared to show? Ezekiel Elliott?at a marijuana dispensary hours before the rookie running back was set to make his preseason debut. In the video, a man the website reported to be Elliott was seen in Herban Legends in Seattle, but he was not shown making any purchases. "Well, I think that in and of itself the reason we are talking about is in a way part of the learning process," Jones said after the Cowboys' loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday.

  • Jim Boeheim’s Melo comments are evidence of why athletes hate the media

    Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim has a habit of creating headlines that are not all that flattering, to himself or to the people that he’s commenting on, which is why it wasn’t much of a surprise that a quote he gave to Mike Waters of the Syracuse Post-Standard has been making the rounds this week. The quote in question? “He’s unlikely to win an NBA title,” Boeheim said of his former star and now three-time Olympic champion Carmelo Anthony. “He’s never been on a team that even had a remote chance of winning an NBA title.” That sounds bad, doesn’t it? But … I mean, he’s right, isn’t he? Melo is 32 years old and title-less. He’s been to the conference finals once and gotten out of the first round

  • Alex Morgan comments on suspension of U.S. national teammate Hope Solo

    Alex Morgan returned to the Orlando Pride this week after competing for the U.S. women's national team in the Summer Olympics. The U.S. lost in the quarterfinals, the team's worst finish in history, to Sweden. Everyone was disappointed and heartbroken after the loss, Morgan said.
