Oh brother, what are those freaking Mets up to this time?
A 77 MPH Little League fastball might not be equivalent to a 100 MPH major-league fastball, but a pitch to the crotch is painful at any level of baseball.
By the low standards of baseball, Indians starting pitcher Mike Clevinger is an interesting personality. He loves good vibes, has a flowery tattoo sleeve on his left arm, and frequently wears customized cleats, even if that means pushing back on MLB’s dour uniform rules. Clevinger also has long hair, which means he’s…
In February of 2017, at some conservative event in Maryland, Donald Trump said that Paris was a ruined city because too many brown and black people live there now. (I’m giving you the gist.) He attributed this opinion to his friend “Jim,” a “very, very substantial guy.” Is this jogging your memory?
Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler were previously teammates on the Chicago Bulls, so this could be a lighthearted gag between friends. Uh, maybe.
Notre Dame football will play at Yankee Stadium in November, so to commemorate what will surely be a memorable game against Syracuse, the Fighting Irish will wear these pinstriped uniforms. The price is quite steep at $95, but anyone who’d buy one would be doing so drunk anyway.
Donny Aaron, the husband and coach of UFC fighter Andrea Lee, received attention in June when an Instagram photo showed the swastika tattoo on his arm. This month, police say he assaulted Lee and is on the run.
Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter apparently feels he can show his face in public again, opening up to Jerry Crasnick for an ESPN feature on the future of the team, and boy, was the author willing to make him comfortable.
Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Later.
Minor league baseball is nuts, man. The Burlington Bees had already bled two runs to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in the bottom of the ninth of Friday’s Class-A game, but they still had two outs and two strikes against batter Nic Pierre with the bases loaded. The Timber Rattlers’ left fielder struck out—and his team…
The Dallas Wings are three games under .500 after losing eight straight. They still have a shot to get the WNBA’s last playoff spot, but they’ll have to reach that goal under a new head coach, because their old one just got canned.
Boston sports radio host Kirk Minihane revealed Thursday night that he had been absent from WEEI’s Kirk and Callahan for a few days because he checked into a hospital last week after experiencing suicidal thoughts. On today’s show, he elaborated on what happened.
Basketball what-ifs can be a fun game to play, so here’s one that wouldn’t have significantly changed the course of NBA history but is nonetheless odd: Did you know an in-his-twilight “Pistol” Pete Maravich might have picked the Celtics over the 76ers because of a threatened ass exam?
Former Lions tight end Joseph Fauria, who in 2014 had the strangest excuse for a non-sports injury (non-baseball division) when he said he sprained his ankle while trying to stop his Pomsky from peeing in the house, has finally come clean. Lil’ Rufio was framed!
Rudolph “Blaze” Ingram is a 6-year-old with a bevy of accolades in his future, according to the Instagram account controlled by his father. He runs track, plays football, and does speed drills. That’s cool, but this child is too strong. He already has a damn six-pack, going on eight.
The Democratic National Committee has refused to play the Republican National Committee in this year’s annual softball game. Good! Fuck them. [Washington Examiner]
The MLB non-waiver trade deadline is at 4 p.m. today, and there’s only one prize on every team’s mind: Marlins reliever Brad Ziegler. Where will he end up? Follow along with the number one liveblog dedicated solely to the Unicorn, which is apparently his nickname according to Baseball Reference. And feel free to send…
Last week, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and his son Stephen boasted about the team’s expectations that every player stand for the pregame national anthem, or otherwise find himself out of a job. Dallas-based sportscaster Dale Hansen of ABC affiliate WFAA called out Jones for his intimidation tactics, as well as his…
Even though the NFL and its players’ union agreed this month to negotiate a better national anthem policy and not enforce the wholly unappealing one introduced in May, the Dallas Cowboys are going their own way. Team owner Jerry Jones said this week that he expects all his players to stand for the anthem, and his son,…
