Arian Foster Gave The Same Answer 11 Times In A 90-Second Interview

Arian Foster formally talked to media today for the first time since last season ended, but he didn't give them anything useful. The Texans running back basically repeated the same answer, about trying to be the best teammate he can be, for a minute and a half before peacing out. Though some Texans beat writers on… » 7/30/14 2:11pm 5 minutes ago

Cubs Catcher Is Winning Pitcher, Scores Winning Run In 16-Inning Game

I do not envy the hardy fans who watched all 6:27 of the game between the 43-63 Rockies and the 44-61 Cubs, including 12 straight scoreless innings. But those who did stick it out saw something rare: Chicago catcher John Baker pitched a scoreless top of the 16th, and became the winning pitcher when he scored the… » 7/30/14 1:28pm 48 minutes ago

They Came Together: The Second-Best Romantic Comedy Spoof Ever

I'm just a guy, sitting in front of a screen, asking it to make me laugh at beautiful, awkward, charming people who are falling in love. The romantic comedy can be a fine way to burn two hours, but it's a silly genre at heart, with its contrived meet-cutes and drawn-out misunderstandings, and also a tough form to… » 7/30/14 1:14pm Today 1:14pm

New, "Grassroots" Pro-Redskins Website Is Run By A PR Firm, Of Course

Redskinsfacts.com, which just launched this month, doesn't hide its position on the team's controversial name. It features a revisionist history of the word and the team's appropriation of it, interviews with former players and Native Americans who support its usage, and invites fans to lend their support. » 7/30/14 12:46pm Today 12:46pm

The Twins Have Apparently Found The Real-Life Sidd Finch

One of the weirdest baseball stories of the year is about Brandon Poulson, a 24-year-old pitching prospect whom the Twins just plucked from the void for the price of $250,000. Nobody's ever heard of Poulson until now, but if the early stories about him are to be believed, he's basically the non-hoax version of Sidd… » 7/30/14 10:26am Today 10:26am

There Is No Explanation For Blowing This Call

This was a trapped ball. It was pretty clear, and indisputably so on replay. Yet umpires upheld their initial ruling of a catch, even after Ron Gardenhire's challenge. My headline up there isn't some huffy hyperbole on just how baffling the call was—it's about how umpires literally didn't give an explanation for how… » 7/30/14 10:07am Today 10:07am

Vin Scully To Return For A 66th Year, Gets Standing Ovation

This is cool. The Dodgers announced Vin Scully was returning in 2015 for a 66th year in the Los Angeles broadcast booth. They showed a pre-taped skit during the game tonight, featuring Hyun-Jin Ryu, Yasiel Puig, and Justin Turner making the announcement. After the video played, the feed turned back to the stadium… » 7/30/14 1:24am Today 1:24am

A Mets Game, As Experienced By The Team Twitter Account

We rag on the Mets here a good amount—mostly because it's so much fun—but tonight, during a 6-0 loss to the Phillies, the team twitter account got in on the joke and had some fun. With a healthy dose of self awareness and self-loathing humor, the twitter account presented the Mets Fan Experience, in eight tweets. » 7/29/14 11:05pm Yesterday 11:05pm

The Rangers Cap Off Rough Sixth Inning With Outfield Beanball

The Yankees scored seven runs in the sixth inning, the last coming thanks to this fielding miscue in right-center field. Alex Rios looks like he had a bead on a fly ball from Brett Gardner, but closes his glove too soon, causing it to bounce into centerfielder Leonys Martin and ricochet off his skull. The brush with… » 7/29/14 10:24pm Yesterday 10:24pm
