More often than not, professional athletes who sign lucrative contracts try to convince us that their decision was not strictly about money. That can be true in some situations, but money is usually the driving force. Dollars and cents were what motivated Zack Greinke to sign with the Los Angeles Dodgers, but the right-hander isn’t afraid to admit it.
“It’s obviously the No...
Cubs star shortstop Starlin Castro sat out the first of two to three scheduled
Spring Training games on Thursday, February 28, due to tightness in the leg
that he strained while running out a ground ball in Wednesday’s game. Castro mildly
strained his left hamstring beating out a groundball that ended in an overthrow

The two-time Cy Young Award winner is hoping he looks like the pitcher he was before struggling last season.
Lincecum gave up three runs and failed to get through two innings in his first spring training start Tuesday for the San Francisco Giants, an 8-8 tie with the Los Angeles...
