Mike Trout gets his 1,000th career hit on his 26th birthday

While reaching the 1,000 hits threshold isn’t all that impressive for a baseball player (more than 1,200 players have done it in the history of the game), it’s still a great feat for a human being.

Run The Jewels threw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field and Killer Mike nailed it

This mostly has to do with his Andrus bond, but Beltre has never met an easy pop-up he couldn’t exploit for his own benefit. It’s usually just distracting enough to be funny but not dangerous, and Beltre enjoys doing it so dang much it’s hard not to appreciate the joke along with him. This is […]

Rick Porcello is the second Boston player of the season to throw an immaculate inning

DeAndre Hopkins: Tom Savage, not Deshaun Watson, should be Texans starter

People can’t stop talking about Deshaun Watson during Texans training camp. Head coach Bill O’Brien called him the best rookie quarterback he’s ever worked with while every reporter that has seen him throw has been impressed.

Bill Belichick’s top 10 wins ranked by how happy they made Patriots fans

Bill Belichick has been on the Patriots sideline for some devastating losses. No matter how painful the defeat, however, the stoic head coach can always take comfort in a much longer list of dramatic victories. “Not making the playoffs is not good enough here,” Pagano said. “We understand what the expectations are and what the […]

Tom Brady’s concussion comments are more damaging than you think

Just in case the NFL hasn’t already told you 40,000 times, Tom Brady celebrated his 40th birthday on Thursday.
