Michael Sam lost a numbers game Saturday -- not a political or moral one

Being gay wasn't Michael Sam's problem. Not being Ethan Westbrooks was. Westbrooks is a 6-foot-4, 267-pounder who can play defensive end or tackle, a giant with a Hemi engine who can clog rush lanes or blot out the sun, a rookie who can work the "3" technique or the "5," depending on the circumstance. Same is a 6-2, 261-pound pass-rushing specialist. Which...

Cardinals ready for a long day of baseball with the Cubs

After failing to stifle one of the Chicago Cubs' top prospects, the St. Louis Cardinals are on the verge of matching their longest losing streak this season. The Cardinals will seek to avoid a fourth consecutive defeat in Saturday's opener to a doubleheader, and Justin Masterson will try to shake off another lackluster outing while attempting to contain promising rookie Jorge...

Cubs' rookies get the best of Cardinals' most reliable reliever

ST. LOUIS -- On Friday night when the most valuable Cardinal returned after a seven-week absence, the most dependable Cardinal struggled like he hadn't all season. The difficulties of reliever Pat Neshek determined the outcome of the Cubs' 7-2 victory far more than the comeback of Yadier Molina, who went 0 for 4 but experienced no issues with his surgically repaired right...

Soler's two HRs, Baez double sends Cubs past Cards

ST. LOUIS -- Jorge Soler hit two homers and fellow rookie Javier Baez had a tiebreaking, two-run double in the eighth inning off All-Star reliever Pat Neshek as the Chicago Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-2 on Friday night. The Cardinals lost in the return of star catcher Yadier Molina. He had been out since July 9 because of a torn ligament in his right thumb, and went 0 for...

'Redeemed' Tyron Woodley wants to call the shots for his next bout

ST. LOUIS -- Tyron Woodley isn't quite sure when the UFC will call about his next fight, but he knows what he wants to hear. Something like this: "How would you like to take on Matt Brown in the co-main event before a Johny Hendricks-Robbie Lawler title fight? And if you win, you get your shot at the title." Woodley, in fact, has been calling for such a scenario since...

There are rumblings that Yadi Molina is ready to work in St. Louis

After Yadier Molina tore a ligament in his right thumb July 9, the St. Louis Cardinals were told their star catcher would be out 8-12 weeks and may miss the remainder of the regular season. Molina seemingly ignored the timeline. He's expected to join the Cardinals for Friday night's series opener and possibly play against the visiting Chicago Cubs, much to the delight of...

Wainwright takes loss, is ready to put August behind him

For one inning anyway, Adam Wainwright pitched like Adam Wainwright of the first half. But for the next five innings at Pittsburgh on Wednesday afternoon, he was back in his "grindy" mode, his second-half "funk" or whatever you want to call it. Still, put the six innings together and Wainwright was good enough to record a quality start. But he wasn't good...

Sam gets last chance at a preseason impression

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Michael Sam is about to get one last chance to show the St. Louis Rams why he belongs on their 53-man roster. For him -- and everyone else on NFL roster bubbles -- a preseason finale is anything but meaningless. Sam and the Rams visit the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night, the last exhibition for both clubs and the last opportunity for players to state their...

Protecting the Rams' QB is more important than embracing him

ST. LOUIS -- It's only natural that when a team's starting quarterback is lost for the season in a meaningless preseason game, the intense focus will be on that position and the player stepping up to replace him. At the same time, at least publicly, other important issues get pushed to the background. That has clearly been the case since the moment this past Sunday afternoon...

Michael Sam still fighting for a roster spot as Rams inch closer to final cuts

ST. LOUIS -- As seniors at Missouri a year ago, E.J. Gaines and Michael Sam worried mostly about how they would lead a defense expected to struggle once again in the mighty SEC. This fall, they've been fighting for roster spots with the St. Louis Rams, and Gaines looks to be in good shape to not only make the team, but maybe earn a starting cornerback spot after Trumaine Johnson...

Cardinals' Lynn is one of the best in the league at limiting the long ball

Few pitchers have proven more difficult to take deep this season than Lance Lynn. Considering much of the Pittsburgh Pirates' offense lately has come via the long ball, they could be in trouble Tuesday night against Lynn and the St. Louis Cardinals at PNC Park. Lynn (14-8, 2.78 ERA) has gone 6-2 with a 1.73 ERA in nine starts since surrendering a season-high six earned runs in...

Hero or head case? Mizzou's Baggett says he's found his sense of zen

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- All-SEC kickers are made not so much from the hips down, but from the neck up. And so after hearing a small-group lecture at a kicking camp this summer from Dr. Marty Martinez about failure -- not fearing it, accepting it, using it as a springboard to bigger and better things -- Andrew Baggett pressed Martinez to go keeper, to help him trap that elusive butterfly...

Cardinals grab series opener in Pittsburgh with clutch seventh-inning swings

Matt Holliday is on track to end up with career-lows in batting average and slugging percentage and his fewest homers and RBIs since his rookie season. But the Cardinals' 34-year-old left fielder still is coming through with his share of big hits. He hasn't had many bigger this season than the two-run single he delivered in the seventh inning Monday night at Pittsburgh that...

No time for Tebow in STL: Hill ready to roll as Rams' No. 1 QB

ST. LOUIS -- It didn't take long for virtually everyone to chime in with an opinion on who should replace injured Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, including a former starter looking for a job. But despite rumors that calls were already being made to find someone else, coach Jeff Fisher remained firm that Shaun Hill will be the man Week 1 against Minnesota after Monday's practice...

Mizzou QB Mauk set to become full-time starter

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Growing up in Kenton, Ohio, Maty Mauk didn't know much about Missouri. But he got an offer to play quarterback for the Tigers, and decided to visit them during the Fourth of July weekend in 2011. Five hundred miles later, he knew where he wanted to attend college. "When I came on that first visit, it was a lot different than the other ones," Mauk said...

Cardinals call up Lyons to bolster bullpen, demote Garcia

The Cardinals reached to Triple-A Memphis to bolster their bullpen Monday morning, calling up left-hander Tyler Lyons and sending down infielder Greg Garcia. While the move will leave the bench short, the club must consider the need for a fresh arm greater than that for a pinch-hitter and backup infielder. Garcia struck out in his only two at-bats since he was called up last week...

A Cardinals sweep in Pittsburgh could be knockout blow of Pirates

With last week's sweep at Busch Stadium, the Cardinals pretty much ended the Reds' playoff hopes. Now they have a chance to do the same to the Pirates. Sweep the three-game series that begins Monday night at Pittsburgh and the Pirates would fall 6 1/2 games behind St. Louis, which is 1 1/2 games behind first-place Milwaukee. Anyone around for 2011 knows a comeback is possible...

Tyron Woodley flattens Dong Hyun Kim by TKO in just 61 seconds

Following a disastrous performance in his last fight, Tyron Woodley bounced back in a big way on Saturday with a first round knockout over Dong Hyun Kim in China. Woodley struggled against Rory MacDonald, rarely opening up his offense at all and spent the majority of the fight pinned against the cage offering up little in the way of a counter to his opponent's punches and kicks...

Nonconference games could show whether Mizzou is NCAA tourney material

If challenging neutral-site games are the best way to prepare for the postseason, Missouri basketball should be in good shape. For the seventh straight season, the Tigers will play only one true road game in their 13-game nonconference schedule, which the university released Friday morning. First-year coach Kim Anderson also released the schedule via Twitter; perhaps the SEC'...
