Baseball: the only sport people expect to be stuck in the past – NBCSports.com

Monday, March 31, 2014

These two tweets came from ESPN’s Howard Bryant yesterday morning. They came exactly three minutes apart: “Baseball needs a reserve clause. It couldn’t survive if players were allowed to be free agents.” – Henry Aaron, 1969. NCAA will adapt, too — Howard Bryant (@hbryant42) March 30, 2014 @Ken_Rosenthal the junior GMs have tried to turn a game of people into science, boring the shit out of future generations in the…

Leon Russell sang it better than I can write it: “The vultures fly around me. Come and take me home. Can’t tell the bad from the good, I’m out in the woods; yeah, I’m lost in the woods.” Q: When is the logical, decent time to start a weekend MLB game in NYC in April? 1 p.m., no? Well, four weekend April night games are scheduled — two Yankee Sunday…

From done to won: Kurt Busch stages Martinsville comeback – FOXSports.com

Monday, March 31, 2014

Kurt Busch made a dramatic pass of  Jimmie Johnson with 10 laps to go to win Sunday’s STP 400 at Martinsville Speedway and become the sixth different winner in as many NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races this season. Busch broke an 83-race winless streak, as he fought a stirring late-race duel with the six-time champion around the tight 0.526-mile Virginia short track. Johnson led 296 of 500 laps in his…

Michigan State gets its timing back just in time – Yahoo Sports

Monday, March 31, 2014

NEW YORK (AP) — Michigan State guard Keith Appling drove the lane one day in practice and flipped a lob to Branden Dawson as he had many times before. ”He didn’t go get it,” Appling recalled Saturday. ”It wasn’t that it was a bad pass or bad timing. We weren’t used to doing it. I had been out for so long, and he had been out for so long.” Appling…

10 moments to remember from winter sports season – Boston Globe

Monday, March 31, 2014

As deadline approaches, a weather forecaster is talking about the track of yet another approaching storm. Really? We’ve all had enough of winter at this point … unless of course you’re a high school sports fan. Yes, there was plenty of snow and cold, but in places such as Reading, Duxbury, Millis, and Attleboro, they enjoyed every minute. That’s because those communities celebrated state championships and there’s nothing like a…

Was concern over DeSean legit or did Eagles go too far in cutting WR? – FOXSports.com

Sunday, March 30, 2014

The shock has sunken in now, but we are all still shaking our heads at arguably an unprecedented move. Super Bowl wannabes don’t just cut three-time Pro Bowl stars coming off career years during the prime of their careers every day. But that’s just what the Philadelphia Eagles did Friday, releasing game-breaking wide receiver DeSean Jackson — approximately one hour after NJ.com posted a story detailing alleged gang ties between Jackson…

Kentucky weathers storm, survives heavyweight fight – FOXSports.com

Saturday, March 29, 2014

INDIANAPOLIS — Up and down the defending national champions went, turning rebounds into baskets and baskets into opportunities for more steals. Louisville’s pace was too fast for Kentucky early in Friday night’s Sweet 16, and the stage looked too big for the blue-clad freshmen, too. All part of the plan? No. But it was part of the itinerary. “We knew how this would start,” a smiling John Calipari said after…

Saturday, March 29, 2014

Derrick Ward was an NFL running back from 2004 to 2011. He played with the New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Houston Texans. On Friday afternoon, after the Philadelphia Eagles released DeSean Jackson, Ward WENT OFF about ESPN, the NFL, Chip Kelly and more. Actually, WENT OFF is an understatement. Take a look. Like he’s a horrible person. The NFL is so Contridictive I swear. Especially these punk ESPN…
