Philadelphia 76ers rookie Joel Embiid has one of the most entertaining Twitter accounts in the NBA — or, at the very least, one of the most ridiculous. Here’s a small sampling of the Kansas product’s recent tweets, all from within a two-hour span Tuesday night: I guess now I have to turn my chill on so I don't get fined— Joel SHMURDA Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) August 26, 2014...

NESN’s Gary Striewski Makes Sweet One-Handed Grab In Toronto (Video)

Baseball gloves — so overrated. During the 10th inning of Wednesday’s Boston Red Sox-Toronto Blue Jays game, a foul ball by Will Middlebrooks floated out of reach of the Blue Jays’ fielders but made a beeline straight for NESN’s Gary Striewski. The sideline reporter avoided taking the baseball off the dome, though, and instead was able to snare it out of the air with an...

Astros Fan Tops 50 Cent, Miss Texas For Year’s Worst First Pitch (Video)

Stop the fight. We have a winner. The 2014 Major League Baseball season has seen the full gamut of terrible, horrible, no good, very bad ceremonial first pitches, but the one tossed out Tuesday by one “lucky” Houston Astros fan takes the cake. Your browser does not support iframes. That was more of a slam dunk/volleyball spike, and its never a good sign when the ball hits the...

Giancarlo Stanton Trade Isn’t Only Offseason Move Red Sox Should Pursue

Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is the big fish. He’s not the only fish. Reeling in Stanton this offseason admittedly would be the best-case scenario for the Red Sox, almost regardless of the package they’d be forced to assemble. He’s young (turning 25 in November). He’s under team control through 2016. And he’s that good. But if Boston really wants to avoid...

Red Sox’s Extra-Inning Explosion A Sign Of Boston’s Spoiler Potential

The Boston Red Sox could become a very annoying team down the stretch. That’s a compliment. Several veteran players on the Red Sox acknowledged recently that this season has been extremely frustrating, especially given last year’s World Series run. No one within Boston’s clubhouse appears to be mailing it in, however, and the Red Sox absolutely have the potential to dash other...
