Torii Hunter rips Angels for willingness to spend for Josh Hamilton and not him

The Los Angeles Angels made yet another enormous offseason splash on Thursday by reportedly signing Josh Hamilton to a five-year, $125 million deal. Last winter, the Angels locked down the best hitter on the free agent market by bringing Albert Pujols aboard.

Patrick Peterson: Playing against Calvin Johnson will show I’m NFL’s best corner

If there is one player in the NFL who will never have to toot his own horn, it has to be Calvin Johnson.

This week, that defender is Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson. “I think I am the best...

As you might expect, the Minnesota Timberwolves were not thrilled with most of the Kevin Love quotes that were published in Tuesday’s Yahoo! Sports feature story on him.

Barkley: Knicks are closer to a Playboy bunny than a rabbit this year

Charles Barkley has never been a big fan of the New York Knicks. As far as he is concerned, New York is a team that creates a ton of buzz every season only to fall short of expectations. Last season, he shot down rumors of John Calipari potentially returning to the NBA to coach the Knicks by saying Coach Cal would never be drunk enough to take such a horrible job. Sir Charles is...

Randy Moss: Colin Kaepernick throws so hard he dislocated my finger

Colin Kaepernick had made a lot of plays with his legs for the San Francisco 49ers, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he can’t throw. Not only has he completed more than 67% of his passes this season, but Kaepernick is also capable of putting some zip on the ball and sticking it into tight spots. Randy Moss said that is the reason he recently suffered the first dislocated finger...

Looks like Warren Sapp lied about losing his Super Bowl ring

Warren Sapp may have surrendered many valuable items when he filed for bankruptcy, but his Super Bowl ring was not one of them. You may recall that when Sapp filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, he reportedly claimed that he had lost his Super Bowl and NCAA national championship rings. We said at the time that Sapp was probably lying so that he wouldn’t be forced to sell the...

Brandon Marshall compares Bears’ season to Charlie Brown Christmas tree

Brandon Marshall sure is a creative thinker. The Bears wide receiver came to his press conference on Wednesday with a tiny Charlie Brown-like Christmas tree as a prop, and he used it to make a comparison. The tree only had a few branches, one ornament, and the music box below it plays the Charlie Brown theme song. “Right now, metaphorically, our season looks like this tree right...

Adrian Peterson: I can beat Eric Dickerson’s single-season record of 2,105 yards

Adrian Peterson has completely defied science with the Minnesota Vikings this season. Despite suffering a torn ACL at the end of last season, Peterson has bounced back to enjoy one of the best seasons of his career. Most players take at least a year to return to form after an injury that significant, but A.P. has shown that the knee is a non-factor by rushing for 1,600 yards in 12...
