Yordano Ventura Is Baseball's Surliest Little Shit

Kansas City Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura has made four starts this season, and he has yet to leave one under his own volition.

Down 20 Late, The Warriors Top The Pelicans In A Bananas Game

That might be the most incredible basketball game I have ever witnessed. As late as six minutes into the fourth quarter, the Pelicans held a 17-point lead over the Warriors.

Four Things I Like About The Mets, Who Are Playing Well Right Now

My boss Tim Marchman is making me write about the Mets, both because they have the best record in baseball and because people keep emailing about it.

The 49ers Want To Turn Youth Soccer Fields Into Parking Lots

The San Francisco 49ers have their shiny new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, but they want more. (NFL teams are never satisfied and will run over your grandmother with a steamroller if it means just one more square foot of space in their stadium.)

Roy Hibbert And The Indiana Pacers Are Headed For A Messy Divorce

Roy Hibbert is an awkward fit in today’s pace-and-space NBA.
