Jets Fans Berate Team Heading to Locker Room at Halftime of Loss to Patriots on Thursday (Video)

It took a few days for this video to surface on the Internet, but it was well worth the wait. Suffice to say, the second quarter of Thanksgiving Day’s 49-19 loss to the Patriots didn’t go well for the Jets. The Pats turned four Jets turnovers into touchdowns, and scored 35 points (all after a scoreless first quarter) to effectively seal the win before half of the game was even...

Report: Tigers Talk to Scott Boras About Interest in Rafael Soriano

The Tigers were swept out of the World Series, and though it likely wouldn’t have made much of a difference, one of their issues throughout the playoffs was the performance of closer Jose Valverde.

Report: Red Sox ‘Open’ to Idea of Dealing Andrew Bailey Despite Possibly Low Trade Value

About 11 months ago the Red Sox traded Josh Reddick to Oakland in exchange for Andrew Bailey. Now, Boston could be flipping the closer again. Bailey’s fourth season in Major League Baseball was easily his worst, as the former All Star underwent thumb surgery during spring training and didn’t make his first appearance for the Red Sox until Aug. 14. Once he returned he was largely...

On Tuesday Major League Baseball suspended Philadelphia Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz for violating the sport’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

Jets’ 2013 Barren Salary Cap Situation Means At Least One More Year in AFC East Basement

If you think the New York Jets are bad this year, just wait until next season. The Jets made a conscious decision to build for the 2009-2011 seasons by signing veteran players and pushing their salary hits down the line so they could fit them all under contract. They were also partially hit by the uncapped 2010 season, but even more so by the belief that the NFL salary cap would...

Vote: Do You Want the Red Sox to Sign Josh Hamilton?

Josh Hamilton is a free agent conundrum. There have been few players in the recent history of free agency that have been such an interesting case as the former MVP outfielder. On the one hand, there are few players in baseball as talented as Hamilton. Though his speed has come down a bit, he’s accurately described as a five-tool player, and his power, in particular, is other worldly...

Patriots, Giants Both on Track for Second-Half Surges That Have Taken Them to Super Bowl Before

The Arizona Cardinals began the season 4-0. It was a feat marked by many an NFL scribe, as it should have been — such a record comes along in that southwestern state as often as a lunar eclipse. In New York and New England, the homes for last year’s Super Bowl participants, the early part of the season gets just as much attention, but usually in the opposite way. A loss is cause...

Mike Napoli sits atop of Boston’s wish list. According to the Boston Herald, Napoli is reportedly the Red Sox’ first option in free agency.

West Ham Fans’ Abusive Chanting Shows Political Correctness Has Place in Soccer and Beyond

Ajax, a leading Dutch soccer club has historical ties to Amsterdam’s Jewish community. Its fans often refer to the team and themselves as “the Jews.” Feyenoord is a longtime rival. One...

One of the givens as Boston entered the offseason seemed to be that Cody Ross would be returning to the Red Sox. The right fielder had said he enjoyed his time in Boston, and the club was said to be pleased with how his personality and power hitting had buoyed the team throughout the season. Several weeks into free-agent signings, though, and Ross is still on the market. But that...

Shaun Marcum Should Be Targeted to Help Bolster Red Sox Rotation If Other Teams Show Reluctance

The American League East is even more competitive than Shaun Marcum left it when the Blue Jays traded him to the Brewers for Brett Lawrie back in December 2010. Marcum is also two years older, and his health status is far more questionable. That shouldn’t scare the Red Sox away. Marcum is a real wild card on the open market this offseason, and someone who is unlikely to generate...
