Giants: Andres Torres, Jose Mijares out of World Baseball Classic with injuries

Per Henry Schulman, among others, Giants outfielder Andres Torres and reliever Jose Mijares have injuries that will keep them out of the World Baseball Classic. Torres, who would have played for Puerto Rico, has an oblique strain that will keep him sidelined for a week. Mijares, a member of the Venezuelan team, has elbow soreness. Minor injuries but enough to keep them out of the...

Klay Thompson still has an allowance from parents, and it took a hit after Pacers fight

If you’ve watched a fair number of Warriors games this season, chances are you’ve made fun of Klay Thompson at some point. It’s just what happens when you watch someone who is so frustratingly inconsistent. Now here’s a story that will let you make fun of him even more—not because it has to do with Thompson bricking more layups, but because it’s just so damn comically...

49ers pursuing Darrelle Revis trade?

This has been speculated before, but Yahoo!’s Jason Cole has the latest: The 49ers are among a handful of teams that have discussed making a run at Revis this offseason, according to two sources. In fact, the 49ers are poised to make a run at Revis even if it’s just for one season (although that could be problematic from Revis’ standpoint). The bottom line is that if the New...

Brett Anderson named A’s opening day starter

Bob Melvin announced on Thursday that Brett Anderson will get the nod as the A’s starting pitcher on opening day. This should surprise nobody. Anderson was exceptional for the club after coming back from Tommy John surgery in August and at just 25, remarkably, is the longest tenured pitcher in the rotation. So, it’ll be Anderson up against Felix Hernandez and the Mariners in...

DIDN'T SEE YA THERE

Draymond Green left hanging by Steph Curry

Stephen Curry was having a monster game. He just busted yet another insane 3-pointer to push the Warriors on top late. It’s fair to say he was so giddy and preoccupied with apparently having seizure that he just totally missed Draymond Green trying to give him some dap. Getting left hanging is pretty much how Warriors fans feel after that loss. [GIF via cjzero]

Stephen Curry’s full highlights from 54 point game at Madison Square Garden (Video)

When you drop over 50 points on the unrivaled basketball stage that is Madison Square Garden, you’ve reached a boss status few—Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and I think Super Mario after he unlocked a star—have attained. On his way to an NBA season-high 54 points and franchise record 11 3-pointers, Stephen Curry put on a dazzling show of ridiculous, ballsy shooting...

Alex Smith, the unlucky 49er

So, the inevitable is likely all but official now. Alex Smith will have to trade in his Giants cap for a Royals cap after the 49ers agreed to send their one-time-starter-turned-Kaepernick-jock-holder to the Chiefs, as first reported by Jay Glazer. The deal can’t become official until March 12, when the league’s new year begins. The Niners receive an attractive haul of draft picks...

Steph Curry breaks George Hill's ankles

Believe it or not, things other than a huge fight took place in Tuesday’s Warriors-Pacers contest.  For one, Stephen Curry had a season-high 38 points on 7-of-10 from deep. Oh, and he made George Hill just look absolutely silly: Even the Pacers broadcasters couldn’t help themselves from making fun of Hill, who wisely dragged Curry to the floor to save himself from further embarrassment...

Ugly fight erupts during Warriors-Pacers game

Midway through the fourth quarter of the Warriors-Pacers game in Indy Tuesday, both sides got into an ugly scrap that spilled into the first row of the stands. It started when Roy Hibbert and David Lee got into a shoving match. The melee escalated as the two were attempted to be separated and Hibbert continued to toss dudes aside (mainly Stephen Curry…twice!) like rag dolls. In...

Raiders to restructure Carson Palmer’s contract?

So, Carson Palmer is set to make $13 million in 2013. That’d be all fine and dandy if his last name were Manning, Brees, Brady or Rodgers and winning games. But that’s not the case and his contract is a “no me gusta” situation if you’re the cap-restricted Raiders. That’s why the Raiders are reportedly hoping to restructure Palmer’s contract. From Adam Schefter: Raiders...
