MLS, MLS Players Union reach decisive point as CBA talks continue

For the second time in this decade, MLS and the MLS Players Union traveled to K Street in search of common ground.

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Two seasons after Hall-of-Famer Paul Molitor played his last game, he became the bench coach for the Minnesota Twins on manager Tom Kelly's staff.

Talent at Arizona United tryout high - except for one player

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) The first hint that I didn't belong came when they were handing out jerseys. Arizona United had 110 players at its open soccer tryout. I was given No. 110. Based on the countless missed touches, turnovers, lack of spatial awareness and one badly whiffed header, the number should have been much, much higher. ''You looked pretty good out there,'' United general manager...

Different views of bombing suspect to be given at trial

BOSTON (AP) Two dramatically different portraits of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are expected to emerge when prosecutors and Tsarnaev's lawyers give their opening statements at his federal death penalty trial.

Nuggets-Timberwolves Preview

Brian Shaw's tenure as the Denver Nuggets head coach ended amidst mounting losses. Interim coach Melvin Hunt's stint, thus far, is perfect.

Ducks down Coyotes, move into tie atop Western Conference

If Kelly's all-in move with McCoy is a bust, he may have to fold in Philly

The Philadelphia Eagles are going to trade for Marcus Mariota in April’s draft. They’ll sign Ndamukong Suh in free agency. They’ll upgrade a sorry secondary by adding Darrelle Revis if he is released by New England. And while they’re at it, the Eagles will hurt a division rival by swiping running back DeMarco Murray away from the Dallas Cowboys. Why not? It’s obvious that...
