Robinson Cano has struck out one time in the last 17 games
cockroaches, Keith Richards & Endy Chavez … they survive everything.
Who's winning the "most important, riveting preseason game of our generation/week?" It's the Zebras. Decisively. Roger, make them stop.
UM spokesman now says Jake Heaps was held out of scrimmage to rest his arm.
Joe Yearby ran for 71 yds; Berrios 5 catches, 48 yards; Muhammad had 2 of Miami's 7 sacks. Scrimmage closed to media and public.
Except AV Club.
Brad Kaaya threw two TDs (3 yds to Coley, 9 yds to Tucker) in UM scrimmage tonight, per UM. UM makes no mention of Heaps in press release.
Cunningham says he had talks w/several teams but all told him they had to wait to see what happened with the charge.
With all the penalties, even my man Johnny can't make preseason football watchable. I just can't do it
Dante Cunningham tells AP: "Right now I'm just really ecstatic and ready to move forward in life and continue to play."
The retweet button takes three seconds to cli -- nevermind. http://t.co/0RliYCfMOY
I choose Grossman.
And the thing with all the possible penalties on pass plays is that most include automatic first downs so even more of an advantage
is this what the regular season is gonna be like? I'll lose my mind. flag flag flag flag flag flag flag flag flag flag
Lemme guess: this sweet Native American couple made the trip all the way from Pine Ridge to say they are honored. http://t.co/09lDdBYxXc
Tony Parker nominated Pop for the ALS Bucket Challenge. The anticipation is killing me.
… said his first concert he attended was "Woodstock in '69. I don't remember any of it."
as much as I hate admitting it, Papelbon was actually kind of funny …
Johnny Football 1st and 99......
Miscommunication by the defense on the first play of that series. Jenkins, Baker didn't have call. Meriweather called for timeout.
BEN REVERE HAS CHANGED HIS WALK-UP MUSIC
Hey an awesome deep ball!
There's mutual interest between Leandro Barbosa and the Miami Heat, according to league sources. Don't be surprised if he signs with them.
Why would an NFL team ever run the ball. Just throw it every down and wait for the penalty
I'm not sure RGIII is making it out of the preseason healthy.
Jeez, RGIII limpig around already.
Yeah, they move quicker up here, Johnny.
Thunder-Clippers rivalry already getting good. Addition of Ballmer and Spencer Hawes (two outspoken/proud Seattle natives) only adds to it.
Make it three hits.
Yeah, RGIII gonna have to learn to either get down or slide. Took two needless shots there.
RGIII still doesn't look good doing a hook slide.
I've never wanted the starting QB to get done with his drives in a preseason game more than this one
on the scoreboard between inns., Cole Hamels said he went to "the University of Southern California." Is he padding his resume?
Ok, put in JFF now.
Johnny Manziel and RG3 combined for 18,186 yards, 204 TDs and 2 Heismans in college.
Bruno Caboclo said he hasn’t had contact with Toronto’s Brazilian community yet, but is excited for that. Says summer has been crazy.
Pierre Garcon is returning the punters' warm-up punts - and is turning it into a heck of an adventure. Fear not: Just a guy doing a bit.
Time for John Football.
Not too sure about this Brian Hoyer fella, but I do know he's one letter away from having an excellent last name.
Johnny Football vs RG3. Heisman showdown. Not bad for preseason.
Lakers Coach Byron Scott will serve as a mentor for Centennial High School's Male Academy - for 9th and 10th grade students
"PRINCE AMUKAMARA NOT CONCERNED ABOUT GROIN." Dude, you always have to be concerned about your groin. Duh.
Aaron Gray officially signed his contract with PIstons today - Cartier Martin had inked on Aug 6
I'm calling shenanigans. AK http://t.co/uX5XUqmeGw
Kyle Shanahan just walked over to shake hands with Jay Gruden and Jim Haslett.
I really have no idea what just happened but I liked it...
Good answers, keep em comin
FWIW - Steve Ballmer was explicitly more committed to Clippers in LA than the name Clippers
Dante Cunningham's attorney: "He's had this cloud hanging over his head. He's going to get back to his agent, start working w/ his future."
A for-real actual question: Who are the toughest movie characters all-time, human and non human ?
You can also reach Steve Ballmer at email@example.com. He said he responds to as many emails as he can.
On dropping Dante Cunningham's felony charge, Henn. County attorney's office: "No proof beyond a reasonable doubt for the charged offense."
re: Stokes. Think Marc Gasol, Sam Young and recent situation with Houston's Chandler Parsons. Team controls future of highly regarded talent
On dropping of Dante Cunningham's felony charge, attorney's office requested time in June to work on possible terroristic threat charge.
Stokes' total deal is worth more than $2.5 million. A win-win. He gets more money. Griz can make Stokes a restricted free agent in the end.
On dropping of Dante Cunningham's felony charge, his initial court appearance May 7 was postposed to June 19, then rescheduled for Tuesday.
In nearly 70 percent of their games, the A's have either scored 7 runs or failed to score more than 3. Feast or famine
View from backstage as Steve Ballmer and Doc Rivers invigorate crowd at Clipper Fan Rally. http://t.co/48ssunIeG1
The A's have scored 7 or more runs 33 times this season - 30 came before the Cespedes trade
The news in West Point today was the Drummond report. He didn't stick around long once media availability began on the Christl Arena floor
Since trading Cespedes, the A's have scored 3 runs in 76.5 percent of their games (13 of 17). They are 3-10 in those games
Since trading Cespedes, the A's gave scored 3 runs in 76.5 percent of their games (13 of 17). They are 3-10 in those games
Before trading Yoenis Cespedes, the A's scored 3 runs or fewer in 40 games, which was 37.4 percent of the time. Went 11-29 in those games
The Grizzlies signed Jarnell Stokes. 3 yr deal, third yr is team option. $725k 1st yr, $840k 2nd yr, $980k 3rd yr.
Extra points for the roll.
Betts said he’s feeling more comfortable in center after 10 more games there this month with the PawSox.
Rest of Scott's staff still being finalized, should be done soon. You've heard the rest of the names.
As I reported last wk, Jordan Hamilton deal with Raptors only has partial guarantee/he'll have tough time making roster. But Masai likes him
Thanks to ex-Pacer Billy Knight for coming to the studio today to record a One on One episode. Gonna be hard to squeeze it all into 1 show.
I wonder how long it will take before Steve Ballmer stops being asked if he'll move the Clippers to Seattle?
Jarnell Stokes signs 3-year deal with Griz today,.... CA story coming
Saw Jim Eyen at a Kings' game this past season and he told me he was planning to write a book.
Ballmer: "Seattle is a town that deserves an NBA team...but the L.A. in L.A. Clippers is not changing."
The worst part about my job is sorting through resumes. The number of incredibly qualified folks looking for work is downright scary.
But I'm 100% sure that Kaepernick will use critiques of his team-friendly contract to motivate him, as he uses all perceived slights.
Lakers expected to add well-respected assistant Jim Eyen to Byron Scott's staff, sources tell ESPN. He was last w/ Kings.
Steve Ballmer’s speech to Clippers fans was perfect, but I long to hear what it would have been like in Seattle with him on stage.
I like this Taylor Swift song
If you believe Cal wouldn't have wanted to coach LeBron in Cleveland, I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn at a good price.
Doc on Clippers name change: "I look at it as a name of survival. We've gone through a lot of stuff not just recently but for a long time."
Doc says the Clippers' name is a "name of survival."
No plans to change the Clippers name - Ballmer sees that brand as one of the hottest in the NBA
Ballmer said he'll be sitting courtside. "I like to sit near the action." He was debating with players and coaches where best seat is.
Kaepernick could've told the 49ers that winning QBs have their own salary rules. Kaepernick did it the 49ers way. Boone is doing it his way.
Ballmer doesn't seem interested in changing the name of the Clippers.
Ballmer: "The Clippers are the hottest brand in basketball right now."
For instance, the 49ers told Kaepernick & his reps that they would never discuss any deal for him that violated their salary principles.
Saw a kid in a Brian Scalabrine Bulls shirsey at Best Buy today
I think the 49ers will go into this with every intention of forcing Boone to come in on their terms--a trade for them would be a mini-loss.
Rivers: "Without (Shelly Sterling) this deal does not get done. She wants to be a fan. What's bad about that?"
Doc Rivers - without Shelly Sterling, this deal doesn't get done
Doc puts his iPhone away when talking about technology with Ballmer.
Cleveland: I'm meeting with David Blatt tomorrow. Any Qs?!
Doc Rivers "Sometimes you have to take a stand. I didn't think I would end up having to, but a lot of us were willing to"
Doc was surprised by how many fans were in the building on a Monday afternoon - he was not surprised by Ballmer's enthusiasm
Ben Revere batting .314 … second in the NL. Who knew?
The 49ers & Boone's agents probably have gone past the point of future salaries meaning much. It's about the $$ to Boone now--this year.
so Mike Brown had pot in his system … just like 50 percent of the population.
Derrick Rose is 25. TWENTY-FIVE. Guy sounded wise beyond his years with the media, talking about taking care of his body and such.
Plus Tiger-Cats (2), Roughriders, Argonauts, Blue Bombers and Stampeders.
Presser starting at Staples with Doc and Ballmer
Browns vs. Redskins. Scouts credentialed: Ravens, Steelers, Cowboys, Raiders, Giants, Texans, Panthers, Cardinals, Bills, Buccaneers.
If some Raiders fans believe I should praise what their first-team units have done so far... I presume they want the team to be bad.
If the 49ers didn't actually offer to make Alex Boone one of the top-12 paid guards, they probably shouldn't whisper that they did.
AP college football poll: 60 voters, at least one voter from each state with an FBS team. Voters are non-AP broadcasters and sportswriters.
Steve Ballmer: "I’ll probably go to some away games but focus to try to get to as many home games as I can and still be a good dad."
Where will Steve Ballmer sit during games? "I’m a court dude, not a suite dude." Never could have guessed after that intro.
Pretty amazing press conference from Obama, considering he was sleeping.
Jim Boeheim thinks that Carmelo Anthony should have signed with the Bulls "because they've got better players."
Boeheim on Carmelo: "Just from a basketball point of view, it would have been better to go to Chicago because they've got better players."
Weird press conference to try to honour a white house reporter.
The best friend of writers covering Steve Ballmer? CAPS LOCK.
Rose & Thibs said today's day off was "precautionary," but gotta think there might be 1 or 2 in pool play, when USA plays 5 games in 6 days.
What is the World Cup & the preparation involved doing for Derrick Rose's road back? "Knocking off the rust, that's exactly what it's doing"
Jim Boeheim believes Carmelo would have left NY if Phil wasn't there. "I would think so. I think he stayed because he believes (in) Phil."
Stoll told me she used to serve as a standard bearer in the tournament when she was a little kid, so playing in it is very meaningful.
Just circled the four LAC-DAL games. How much do I have to pay to have a camera feed on Ballmer and Cuban at all times?
Derrick Rose on the atmosphere at West Point: "I didn't know all this was gonna go on, I would've practice *laughter ensues*
Wow, I don't even know what "Gifit" is, but Gigi Stoll has qualified for Portland Classic with a 33 on back nine.
Is he using replacement refs as his speechwriters?
That Steve Ballmer video, but with Howard Dean noises dubbed in
Detroit is a legit playoff contender. Nobody is talking Charlotte but don't sleep on them. Top 4 team in East .
Derrick Rose says he sat out of USA Basketball's workout today for precautionary reasons. No extra soreness in his knee.
That's the spirit
In that story, a (now-former) Louisville player called Strong's replacement "a mean guy" and "Bobby Mother------- Petrino."
so is Obama going to say something or
Ballmer: "I will boldly say the Clippers will win many, many, many, many more Larrys in the next 26 than the past 26."
Ballmer promised many many titles in comparison to the last 26 years --> (gotta start with 1)
It's a formality but the Pistons officially sign Cartier Martin and Aaron Gray to contracts.
Ballmer: "I'll boldly say the Clippers will win MANY, MANY, MANY more Larry's in the next 26 years than over the past 26 years!"
Ballmer: "The Clippers will win many, many more Larrys (Larry O'Brien trophy) in the next 26 than in the last 26 years."
That's official. Gifit Stoll shoots 33 on back nine to earn spot in Portland Classic LPGA event.
Kyrie Irving told us he's happy to have another piece to work with in Cleveland. Yup, that's right. A piece
Why is it still August?
It's weird to actually hear competence coming from a Clippers owner's mouth.
Pretty sure Ballmer doesnt need that microphone.
Sixers open preseason October 6 in Boston. Two games at WFC, Oct 8 vs Charlotte, Oct 16 vs Boston. In Allentown on Oct 18 against Orlando.
