The third inning of the Nationals-Pirates game featured—in order, each resulting from the one before—a fake tag, a Bryce Harper injury and a bench-clearing brawl.
Diamondbacks Chief Baseball Officer Tony La Russa occupied the Pittsburgh Pirates’ TV broadcast booth during Tuesday’s game after play-by-play announcer Greg Brown said that La Russa had a history of retaliatory pitches during his managerial days. In today’s game, Brown defended his comments and criticized La Russa’s…
Tuesday’s lopsided Diamondbacks-Pirates game had drama. Arizona’s Jean Segura and Nick Ahmed and Pittsburgh’s David Freese were plunked within three frames, and the Diamondbacks’ chief baseball officer, Tony La Russa, invaded the Pirates’ TV broadcast booth to argue with the commentators about it.
Plenty of athletes found a way to congratulate Kobe Bryant after his 60-point performance Wednesday. Bills running back LeSean McCoy praised Bryant, cracked jokes at Bryant’s former teammates hugging him after the game, and called currently active Laker Lou Williams “soft.” Williams didn’t like that.
Snowboarder Seth Beckton says a skier threw him off a chairlift, from which he fell 20 or 25 feet, at Aspen Highlands in Colorado. Going by his account of events, the rivalry between skiers and snowboarders remains strong and hostile.
Brandon Browner has had a horrendous season just in terms of defensive coverage. Add in the absurd amount of penalties, and the Saints cornerback is on the verge of making history.
Houston beat Cincinnati 10-6 Monday night, in a game that was about as entertaining as that score indicates. Backup Texans quarterback T.J. Yates threw the only touchdown of the game, entering in the third quarter after Brian Hoyer suffered a concussion. With the loss the Bengals fall to 8-1, while the 4-5 Texans are…
Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes drove to his estranged wife’s Los Angeles home last Saturday when he learned that former Lakers teammate and current Knicks coach Derek Fisher was seeing her, according to the New York Post.
The Kansas City Chiefs are seemingly allergic to throwing to their wide receivers—a true WR still hasn’t caught a touchdown pass since 2013—but Travis Kelce is one of Alex Smith’s favorite targets. The tight end’s size and ability to break tackles is quite similar to Rob Gronkowski, the Gronk Lite to the original…
Drake and Meek Mill are beefing because Meek claimed that Drake doesn’t write his own raps. This morning, Drake released his second diss track aimed at Meek, and it’s pretty good, as diss tracks go, but what I really like about it is the cover art:
Tuesday night’s Giants-Padres game generated a nice baseball beef between the divisional rivals. On a chart of cooking steak, it’d probably register at a “medium.” The tiff did involve a thrown piece of gum, however, so that’s fun.
Dodgers starter Zack Greinke is on a hell of a roll right now, having not allowed an earned run in his last 43 and two-thirds innings. He extended his streak of scoreless innings—the most since Orel Hersheiser pitched 59 straight shutout frames in 1988—with a dominant outing against the Nationals yesterday. But…
On Tuesday, Jets CB Antonio Cromartie played reporter and actually hit teammate Dee Milliner with a tough question, referencing Milliner being “on the roster bubble.” That didn’t sit well with former Jets TE Kellen Winslow Jr., who was teammates with Cromartie in New York for one season.
For those who wanted an update on Kellen Winslow Jr., the former tight end was complaining about Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie on Twitter today. Everyone on Twitter—who cared, anyway— watched these ex-teammates tepidly burn each other.
During the Clippers’s loss to the Rockets last night, Matt Barnes said something very bad to James Harden’s mother. Something so bad that, according to TMZ, after the game Harden’s brother confronted Barnes and forced him to apologize:
Mets pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard, who’s currently with the team’s Triple-A affiliate Las Vegas 51s, got quite feisty with a jamoke on Twitter who called the pitcher soft Thursday night.
It’s a day ending in y, which means that A’s third baseman Brett Lawrie and the Kansas City Royals are still engaging in a dumb feud. Let’s recap what has happened so far:
After Orioles reliever Darren O’Day threw behind Jose Bautista Sunday, the Blue Jays outfielder slapped a two-run home run as Toronto won, 10-7. Bautista started his trot by skipping for a few seconds. Though it was enjoyable enough without context, there was meaning behind it.
The Warriors beat the Clippers 106-98 today, but the most intriguing part of the game happened after the final buzzer, when Dahntay Jones bumped Draymond Green during Green's postgame interview.
