Joe Morgan—two-time National League MVP, all-time great, Hall of Famer, and vice-chairman of the Hall’s board of directors—sent an email today from the general Hall of Fame email address to current voters, arguing (among other things) that drug users like Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, and Mickey Mantle shouldn’t be in the…
Last week I published a story on a bizarre long-term catfishing scandal in the world of baseball blogging. I quickly heard from Max Joseph, cohost of the MTV show Catfish.
In the second quarter of the 49ers’ first win of the season, a 31-21 victory over the Giants, Olympian-turned-wide-receiver Marquise Goodwin hauled in an 83-yard touchdown and immediately dropped to his knees in prayer.
For the last eight years, baseball fan-turned-writer Becca Schultz has presented herself online as Ryan Schultz, a false identity she assumed when she was 13 years old, duping and harassing women on Twitter along the way.
The Giants’ front office is apparently as fed up with Eli Manning as anyone who has watched a Giants game this year has been, and is, according to ESPN, working to find a new quarterback in this year’s draft.
During Washington’s shocking win over the Seahawks in Seattle, Pete Carroll once again had a slant at the goal line blow up in his face. It was essentially a carbon copy of the play that lost Seattle the Super Bowl and turned Russell Wilson into a broken man:
There’s always a postmortem. Where did they go wrong? What should they have done differently? Analyzing a game—a baseball game, a World Series Game 7—is like dwelling on any other thing in the past: It’s in a fixed state. It happened, it’s not changing, and at some point you swallow it and move on.
Dodgers starter Rich Hill was clearly determined not to give away a third-inning plate appearance last night, though he employed some weird-ass strategies to try to battle off Justin Verlander, who was still dealing at that point in the game.
After Alex Bregman dropped the single that knocked in the winning run in Sunday’s ludicrous Game 5, the broadcast caught Carlos Correa jumping onto the field in reaction to pinch runner Derek Fisher making a sprint toward the plate.
The National Park Service is considering implementing “peak season pricing” in 17 of the country’s most popular parks, proposing an increase to $70 per car. Currently, Yellowstone charges $30 per vehicle, or $50 for Yellowstone and Grand Teton.
Hockey dude Henrik Lundqvist literally fell flat on his face on this play that gave the Sharks their fourth and final “goal” last night.
Ah, the Fall Classic. Overcoats and mittens and brisk walks through parks filled with trees showing off their fall colors. It’s World Series time, baby, and the forecast predicts a high of 101 degrees tomorrow in Los Angeles. Seems totally reasonable. Doesn’t seem at all like we’ve fucked up the planet beyond repair.…
The Dodgers are going to the World Series for the first time in nearly 30 years and we already know who will be on the mound for Game 1 in Los Angeles. It will be the face of the franchise, Clayton Kershaw. It couldn’t be anyone else.
Leaving a hotel in Manhattan Wednesday afternoon, San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York told me that he believes that “ultimately, social justice is not a political issue.” Meaning, contextually, that it’s not a partisan political issue, from his perspective. Or shouldn’t be, at least.
Here we are again in the midst of another news cycle involving a powerful man being accused of sexual assault and harassment and women sharing their own traumas in the hope that something—anything—will change the way men treat women and our bodies.
During the offseason, the Dodgers gave big contracts to three of their own free agents: Rich Hill, Justin Turner, and Kenley Jansen. At the time, it seemed like the team would have to lose at least one of those high-priced players—what team in recent history has not had to pick and choose who to retain?—but then Hill…
In an audio recording released today by the New Yorker, you can hear the true, common-as-all-hell approach Harvey Weinstein used against the women who say he assaulted them: Wear them down.
As the Dodgers rolled through their three-game NLDS sweep of the Diamondbacks, outfielder Yasiel Puig seemed to grow more and more hyped up.
