Mike Trout has reached Barry Bonds status

Mike Trout’s historic rookie season for the Angels has been noticed by fans, media, and everyone in baseball, and now we can quantify just how truly incredible he’s been. As Hardball Talk points out to us, Trout has become the first player in baseball to post a 10 WAR since Barry Bonds in 2004. WAR is a newer statistical metric that measures “Wins Above Replacement,” or...

Mario Williams rips replacement officials

Mario Williams is expected to have a major impact in Buffalo this season. On Sunday, he was a nonfactor. The man the Bills signed to a $100 million contract over the offseason had only one tackle. The Jets completely had their way with the defense Williams is supposed to anchor this season, smashing the Bills 48-28. Naturally, it was the replacement officials’ faults that Williams...

Robert Griffin III-inspired ‘Griffining’ could become the new Tebowing (Pictures)

If you have not yet heard about Robert Griffin III’s Redskins debut, you were likely either out of the country on Sunday or do not follow sports. Griffin connected on better than 73% of his passes and threw for 320 yards and two touchdowns in an upset victory over the Saints. He also ran for 43 yards and finished the game with a phenomenal 139.9 passer rating. The RG3 sensation...

Titus Young was benched during Rams game for head-butting Janoris Jenkins

Titus Young is a player who many have said has breakout potential this season, but that will all depend on his attitude. The second-year receiver caught only one pass for 14 yards against the Rams on Sunday, but his lack of production was due in large part to the fact that Young only played in the first half. Detroit head coach Jim Schwartz benched Young at the end of the first...

London Fletcher to the media: ‘None of ya’ll gave us a chance!’

Very few people envisioned the Redskins beating the Saints at the Superdome on Sunday. The odds were stacked in favor of New Orleans. They had the home-field advantage, the playoff-contending team, the veteran quarterback and the explosive offense. Washington had a rookie under center and is trying to rebuild after a disappointing 5-11 season. Barring a major upset, the Saints would...

Jurickson Profar says he tricked Kyle Farnsworth, delivered tie-breaking hit

Rangers rookie Jurickson Profar delivered what turned out to be a game-winning double against the Rays on Saturday night, but he claims he acted like a savvy veteran in the process. In the top of the 10th, Tampa Bay reliever Kyle Farnsworth threw a pitch way inside on the 19-year-old in a moment that could have been interpreted as Farnsworth welcoming him to the big leagues. Profar...

Adrian Peterson, Maurice Jones-Drew have bigger roles than expected in opener

Almost every fantasy football “expert” you asked on Sunday would have told you to bench both Adrian Peterson and Maurice Jones-Drew if you had other options. The star backs were not expected to receive a full workload as Peterson is still recovering from ACL surgery and Jones-Drew missed the entire offseason while holding out. If what they saw wasn’t a full load, it was pretty...

J.R. Smith expects the Knicks to win a championship and ‘nothing less’

This offseason may have brought a shift in power across the NBA, but few believe that power has gone to the Knicks. In the Eastern Conference, the defending champion Miami Heat should be even more dangerous with the addition of Ray Allen and a now-confident LeBron James. In the West, the Lakers have managed to add Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. Those teams are easily your two favorites...

Vernon Davis misses dunk on goal post after TD

Week 1 of the NFL season was all about the celebration fails. First it was Rob Gronkowski botching his touchdown spike, and then it was Vernon Davis getting hung on the rim … err the goal post after scoring against the Packers. VD finished with 3 catches for 43 yards and a score in the Niners’ 30-22 win. Winning in Green Bay was huge for San Francisco. Who would have ever...

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

Von Miller Tebows after sacking Roethlisberger

Von Miller got two sacks on Ben Roethlisberger in the final possession of Denver’s 31-19 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday night, and he received plenty of attention for his sack celebrations. As seen in the images above, the second-year linebacker dropped down on one knee and “Tebowed,” possibly as a nod to his former teammate, Tim Tebow, who’s currently with the Jets, after...

BJ Upton loses wallet, gets it back after fan contacts him over Twitter

Sunday really was B.J. Upton’s day. The Rays center fielder went nuts with three home runs against the Rangers, and then his lost wallet was returned after a fan contacted him over Twitter. A man named Brent Sutton happened to find Upton’s wallet and reached out to the center fielder over Twitter to notify him: @bjupton2 I found your wallet. Hit me back and we can find a way...

Bart Scott humorously declares a ‘media mutiny,’ actually plans a ‘boycott’

Bart Scott was a man full of humorous contradictions after the Jets’ impressive 48-28 thumping over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. The linebacker known for his passionate interviews and catchy quotes laid into the media for clowning the Jets before the season began. Scott was planning to punish the media with a boycott, but he mistakenly called it a “mutiny.” “I’ve got...

Seahawks given extra timeout by replacement referees, still lose

While everything replacement referee-related seemed to go smoothly in the opener between the Cowboys and Giants on Wednesday and in the early session of games on Sunday, the replacement officials were noticeably bad in the second half of games on Sunday. There were plenty of missed calls in the 49ers-Packers game, and the most embarrassing moment came in the Seahawks-Cardinals game...

Antonio Smith upset refs let Richie Incognito play dirty

The Texans beat the Dolphins 30-10 on Sunday, but not everyone was happy after the win. Not only did Houston start off slowly before pulling away, but defensive lineman Antonio Smith was not happy with the referees for allowing Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito to play dirty. Incognito has a reputation for being the dirtiest player in the league, so the charge was not...

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has become known for sharing tales of his sports betting exploits as much as he is known for flossing his wealth via social media. But for all the winning tickets he’s shared via Twitter and Instagram, there was always one thing missing: his losing tickets.

Bryce Harper, Nats rookies dress up as gymnasts for hazing (Pictures)

The Nationals dressed their rookies up as smurfs last year as part of their rookie hazing. This year they opted for a more patriotic theme — they dressed their rookies up as US Olympic gymnasts. Pitcher Gio Gonzalez tweeted two pictures of the rooks dressed up as gymnasts. One was taken inside the team’s clubhouse following their 8-0 loss to the Marlins. The other was snapped...

Roddy White wants to perform better for his fantasy owners

Roddy White had a good day in the Falcons’ season-opening 40-24 win over the Chiefs, but he wasn’t the team’s top-producing receiver. That honor went to Julio Jones, who combined with Matt Ryan for a big game — 6 catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns. Although White had 6 catches for 87 yards, he was disappointed with his final stat line and had his fantasy owners in...

Alfred Morris is the hot fantasy RB pickup

Redskins rookie running back Alfred Morris looks like the most advisable fantasy addition after Week 1 of the NFL season. The sixth-round pick from Florida Atlantic was the Redskins’ leading rusher in their upset win over the Saints. Morris carried the ball 28 times for 96 yards and two short touchdowns in his NFL debut. He got almost all the action and didn’t even share carries...

Matt Ryan to Julio Jones looking like winning combination

Many fantasy football experts had Matt Ryan and Julio Jones ranked highly entering the NFL season, and the predictions are looking clairvoyant through the first week of the season. Jones, a first-round pick last year whom the Falcons traded several picks to draft, scored Atlanta’s first two touchdowns of the season on passes from Matt Ryan. The second-year wide receiver was targeted...

Antonio Cromartie flips into end zone after scoring on interception

Antonio Cromartie is a talented player, but not exactly the smartest. His touchdown against the Bills on Sunday proved that fact. Cromartie intercepted a Ryan Fitzpatrick pass and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown to increase the Jets’ lead to 34-7. As he was cruising into the end zone, he began high-stepping around the 15 and then did a front-flip into the promised land...

Tom Brady gets nose bloodied on sack

Tom Brady was left with a bloody nose after being sacked by Kamerion Wimbley in the second quarter of Sunday’s Patriots-Titans game. Wimbley chased down Brady who was trying to escape the pressure by rolling to his right, and the linebacker clawed him with a paw that went through the facemask. Brady put his hand toward his nose immediately, knowing that he was hurt. Since that...

Rob Gronkowski whiffs on the spike after scoring touchdown

There he is, Rob Gronkowski looking all jacked after scoring a touchdown. Flexing his triceps. Thinking he’s all badass. And then he goes for his signature spike … only he loses his grip on the ball and it goes squirting out behind him. Not one of Gronk’s best moments. At least he did catch the touchdown pass, which is all that really matters. via Gifulmination
