Red Sox Vs. Angels Lineup: Ryan Hanigan, Aaron Hill Return Vs. Tim Lincecum

It was the team’s fourth loss...

Russell Westbrook finally reveals his thoughts on Kevin Durant (sort of)

Russell Westbrook hasn’t reacted publicly since Kevin Durant officially announced he was leaving the Thunder to form a super team with the Golden State Warriors. Reports of what Westbrook’s feelings have ranged wildly. Westbrook himself hasn’t spoken about it at all. Until, that is, someone found him at LAX and asked him about the move.

ESPN airs what might be the slowest graphic ever

ESPN’s graphics department must be trying to squeeze in as much air-time as possible because their latest visual might be their slowest ever. SportsCenter showed a graphic of the Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants facing off against each other and the amount of distance between the two series. It’s standard stuff really. So, why would this be newsworthy? Because the...

Texas A&M creates a very sexist version of their fight song for women

Many different football teams have held “seminars” in order to better introduce the game to female fans. Almost all of them are patronizing and sexist, and don’t take into account how many women care and love the sport without needing these “chalk talks”. But apparently they’re still pretty popular. Texas A&M just held one and… it went about as well as you’d...

How The Rockets Reshaped Their Weird Roster

One word that may best describe the Houston Rockets during Daryl Morey's tenure as general manager is, simply, "weird" - a quirky, personality-filled roster that belies the organization's data-driven, mostly levelheaded approach to team-building at the peak of the analytical era in sports. A front office whose methodology shouldn't be all that controversial (design a game plan with...

Lake Erie ditched racist logo, changed their team name

Well that didn’t take very long, huh? The Lake Erie Warriors, who debuted a less than appropriate logo the other day is already back tracking on that logo. They didn’t just change the logo either as they changed the entire damn name. I don’t think they particularly realize why they needed to change their logo since they decided to change it all. They are now the Lake Erie...

The Case for Trading Lucas Giolito

There’s a rumor out there that the Nationals would be willing to trade Lucas Giolito for Andrew Miller. That is almost certainly not true. There’s a related rumor out there that the Yankees don’t think Giolito would be enough in exchange for Miller. That is almost certainly not true. Miller is fantastic, no doubt, and the Nationals could use him, but it’s not like Miller...
