The poor Mets.
Mets ace and Cy Young candidate Matt Harvey will likely spend the rest of the season on the bench, as he has been diagnosed with a tear of his ulnar collateral ligament (UCL).
The results came via MRI on Monday and he will more than likely be shut down for the rest of the season, and will probably require Tommy John surgery to fix the damage.

Bellator MMA has been doing a lot to build its name and gain notoriety alongside UFC, but even the World Wide Leader is having trouble naming the second largest MMA promotion in the county. Ahead of their fight on November 2nd at Bellator 106, Tito Ortiz and Rampage Jackson appeared on SportsCenter to promote the fight and were incorrectly labeled as “UFC Stars”.
NBA teams have been reluctant to let their stars play for their country during the offseason and this is why. Tony Parker injured his knee during an exhibition game in France.
Former UFC Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva, suffered his first loss in over seven years when he was knocked out by Chris Weidman at UFC 162. Now four months before the rematch, Silva talked about a conversation he had with Dana White, that motivated him to finish the remaining fights on his ten fight deal. “The first time in my life and my career I get knocked out and I’m...

When I wrote the story about Ex-Lions WR Derrick Williams begging internet model Ahni Luv to let him see his son, I made a point to say this.
“Listen, I don’t know the full story, maybe I am missing something.”
It appears there as a lot Derrick left out of the situation.
We always tell both sides of the story and originally we only had Derrick’s side, which made...
All-Pro FB Jerome Felton has been suspended three games according to Adam Caplan. Felton earned Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors in his first season with the Vikings last year, and paved the way for Adrian Peterson to take home NFL MVP honors after rushing for 2,097 yards.
It’s not a good look for them to lose AD’s lead blocker considering we know what they have at QB in Christian...
This is part of a bigger story in GQ about Media Take Out, but besides not sourcing who started the Honey Nut Cheerios story (umm it was me), Lala had an opportunity to ask the Media Take Out founder Fred Mwangaguhunga if heard about Carmelo Anthony ever cheating.

Fred doesn’t know much more than that about where the rumor came from. Which is...
Butch Jones played three sports in High School but he wanted to rep the band in his Senior picture in High School. I’ll let you decide if that was a good idea.
Brian Kelly seems to think that the long layoff hurt his team in last year’s National Championship and affected their play against Alabama. Kelly was asked about the game in an interview with Dan Patrick this morning:
Dan Patrick: Could you have won that game against Alabama?
Brian Kelly: I think the circumstances needed to be a little bit different. I think if we had played in...
This is what happens when you have too much time and money on your hands. You would think these guys would have learned from LeBron instagramming about police escorts, that they shouldn’t post their traffic violations online, but we are talking about Agent Zero here.
He went right to Instagram to tell you how he has been riding dirty. Larry Brown Sports has the quotes.
When the story came out, many dismissed it because it came from TMZ, but now there seems to be a serious issue going on with Lamar Odom and he needs help.

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is supremely talented, but often injured, and sometimes unable to live up to the potential that jumps out when you see him carry a football.
Murray fumbled early on during the Cowboys preseason game Saturday night, and he was benched for the remainder of the first half.
Murray holds the keys to a lot of the Cowboys success, and is frustrated...
First they took away EA NCAA College Football and now this.
I am going to blame Johnny Manziel, but why even put this on a rack? I could just buy a white tee shirt and it would be the same thing and 90% less of the cost.
I know the NCAA is scared of the O’Bannon case, but they have went too far.

“I just don’t feel like his actions warranted a two-game suspension,” Muschamp said.
“He’s very remorseful about the...
So John Wall was at DeMatha on Sunday afternoon to watch the Goodman League Roundball Classic, featuring Kevin Durant. Wall did not play but the night before he hit up Stadium to show support for the dancers. His form on making it rank would put him top 5 in the NBA.
Tracy McGrady retired on Monday, and many will sit and argue about whether or not McGrady is Hall of Fame worthy or not. We’re going to avoid talking about the McGrady who played for the Pistons and Hawks as a shell of himself. Instead we will focus on the McGrady who in his prime, gave Kobe Bryant fits, and dunked on everything and anybody.
When you get out into the world and start meeting people. you quickly find out that it’s a really small world we live in sometimes.

Hard to argue with this type of logic for Ex-Redskins great Dexter Manley.
