Albert Pujols’ wife suggests he’s retiring, then backtracks

As the Angels opened camp for the full squad on Monday afternoon, Albert Pujols’ wife posted on social media that this will be the final season for her husband. However, she later updated her post to include the caveat that this is merely the last season of his contract with the Angels. A representative of Pujols’ agency then said that no decision has been made. Just last week, Pujols told ESPN Deportes that he is undecided about his future beyond 2021. It would be little surprise if Pujols does...

Players opting out of return-to-sports are a microcosm of pandemic

Among the many ugly things about the Covid-19 pandemic is the way it divides Americans by economic class. Those with money are shielded from the virus in countless ways. Among them: They are more likely to have the privilege of shifting to work from home (hand raised here), keeping their jobs and paychecks without myriad real-world exposures. Even if they are laid off, they are more likely to have resources to weather the financial storm without worrying about things like paying for housing and ...

Black Broadway Actor Robert Hartwell Buys House Built by Slaves in 1820 After Seller Implied He Couldn’t Afford It

Broadway actor Robert Hartwell says he’s “never been prouder to be a black man” after he was able to purchase a historic house built by slaves in 1820. Hartwell, who has appeared in Broadway productions such as Hello, Dolly! and Motown the Musical, took to Instagram Thursday (Jun. 25) to show off his new purchase and to share his immense pride in being able to buy a home that was originally built by slaves 200 years ago. In the post’s caption, Robert explained how he knew the house was his as so...

L.A. athletes share outrage and hope in aftermath of George Floyd’s killing

With great volume, athletes have lent their voices to an international chorus denouncing racism and police brutality in America following the killing of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died May 25 after white Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt with his a knee on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes. Their participation in the outcry following Floyd’s killing makes sense on several levels, L.A. Sparks star and basketball TV analyst Chiney Ogwumike said Monday on ESPN’s “...

The Big Game the Morning After (OT)

Turns out my assumptions were out of date. I watched the big game online in perfect quality at the broadcaster's website with no issues. Pretty exciting game. I have to say I wasn't overly impressed with either team, though. Kansas City lost the battle of the line on both sides of the ball, and I'm not sure the much-ballyhooed Patrick Mahomes made a very convincing MVP. For a lot of the game (although it was probably because the pocket kept getting very small very fast), I thought he performed a...

This Week’s Baseball Insanity Is the Perfect Scandal for Our Age

So there are football games this weekend? Yes, you can be forgiven if the NFL’s conference championship games on Sunday have suddenly slipped your mind. Somehow, talk of baseball trash cans and buzzers and burner accounts have knocked football off the front page on the eve of the second-most important day for America’s most popular sport. Baseball, America’s slog of a national pastime, has been locked in a years-long battle to win the hearts of digitally distracted youth. Well, the game now...

Hoornstra: MLB punishing alleged sign stealers is more difficult than banging a trash can

In his book, “A Game of Inches: The Stories Behind the Innovations that Shaped Baseball,” author Peter Morris writes that the cat-and-mouse game “between sign-givers and sign-stealers” in baseball began in the ’80s. The 1880s, that is. The Brooklyn Bridegrooms, ancestors of today’s Dodgers, finished in first place in their league in 1889 and 1890. Morris writes that Brooklyn shortstop George Smith credited the Bridegrooms’ success to stealing their opponents’ signs – a practice as legal then as ...

The Rush: Breaking up with the Steelers is basically impossible

Antonio Brown posted a video to Instagram saying goodbye to Steelers fans and that it's time to move on, totally ignoring the fact that he's still on the Steelers and likely isn't going anywhere. The NBA announced that their non-call on Bradley Beal's egregious five-step travel was the right decision. Zach Britton made the biggest splash of the MLB offseason by changing his name from Zach Britton to Zack Britton.

Dodgers’ Ross Stripling gets the call, added to National League All-Star team

SAN DIEGO — Reporters (not to mention family and friends) had been asking Ross Stripling for a couple weeks about the possibility of the Dodgers right-hander being selected for the All-Star Game. He answered all the questions politely and diplomatically. But it wasn’t until the last few days that he started to let himself really think about it. “I didn’t know how much I wanted it until I saw (Max) Muncy filling out the stuff for the Final Vote,” Stripling said. “They said rosters came out today ...

MLB to Cubs’ Zobrist: Stop wearing black cleats

CHICAGO (AP) — Major League Baseball has warned Ben Zobrist of the Chicago Cubs against wearing black cleats. Zobrist posted a letter from the league office on Instagram saying the cleats he wore May 2 against Colorado violated the collective bargaining agreement.

Alex Rodriguez SHUTS DOWN Claims He's Stiffing Child Support Payments Out Of Revenge!

Alex Rodriguez is clapping back. As you may've seen, reports recently accused the former MLB star of threatening to cut child support payments to ex wife Cynthia Scurtis, as he's still wrapped up in a bitter feud with the 45-year-old's brother Constantine.
