In one sense, it's very hard to argue with Yankees general manager Brian Cashman's overall body of work. Since he started on the job in Februry 1998, New York has captured the American League 12 times in fifteen years -- adding two wild-card berths -- winning four World Series titles.

However, in the luxury tax era, baseball...

When the NHL announced the proposal for a new collective bargaining agreement on Tuesday, hockey fans everwhere felt their hearts beat just a little bit faster.

Likewise, both have spawned numerous parody videos, but the sports world, in particular, has really taken to the South Korean song over the Canadian one. Everyone from Major League Baseball...
Everyone knows that being an NFL player, you're gambling with your health every time you step on the field.
Sideline reporters, however? Probably not going to make a list of most hazardous professions.
That being said, NFL reporter Ian Rapoport got a reminder that yes, indeed, even staying outside the white lines doesn't guarantee safety when you're...

Does anyone understand Russian?
You'd think Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov would be more comfortable than most playing in the KHL. Currently suiting up for CSKA Moscow, the $51 million-dollar man was born in Russia when it was still known as the Soviet Union, so Bryzgalov shouldn't suffer the same culture shock that some NHLers might while awaiting word on...

The Patriots' defensive woes have been well-documented, particularly when it comes to the secondary. Much of the struggles in that unit stem from the team's inability to develop cornerbacks and safeties adequately enough.
