Just give the AL MVP trophy right now to Mike Trout---it's over. NL MVP is????
No LeBron, Melo, CP3, KD, Paul George, Blake or Kevin Love and Team USA still favorites to take home the gold at World Cup. Just so deep
Passed through Vidalia country today. Has been my go-to onion for years. Now it's a real place.
Spain, Lithuania and USA still look like the teams who will be on the podium at the end of the FIBA World Cup
The A's 29 scoreless innings was the 3rd longest scoreless streak in franchise history.
Austin Ernst, who shot 62 here last year while playing solo, leads Portland Classic at -14. Still 14 golfer within four shots, tho.
A's get an RBI in the 8th to snap their scoreless inning streak at 29 innings. A's trail Angels 7-1 in 8th
Woooooo! Brewers have two runs!
Toronto FC is in turmoil? Why I never!
Antron Brown qualified for Top Fuel final by one-thousandth of a second on last qualifying run. Reward? Teammate Schumacker in first round.
The WNBA is so good right now. I'd go to more Sky games if AllState Arena wasn't so inconvenient to get to.
The A's need another 2012 September
$285 million for 10 years from Nike? No wonder KDurant pulled out of Team USA for exhaustion. Counting Jeffersons is hard work.
World Cup. Spain thrashes Egypt 91-54. Serge Ibaka with 18 points. Day 2 is done.
Alonzo Gee's contract is turning him into the NBA's player-to-be-named-later.
Apparently Boyhood took 12 years to make, which is appropriate because the final 45 minutes feel like 12 years.
Rockets now own New York's 2014 (Nick Johnson), 2015 & 2016 2nd rounders. They also add the second PG in their history nicknamed "The Jet".
Beaverton's Gigi Stoll finishes 1-under 71-74-71-71--287 at Portland Classic. Very solid showing from Beaver senior vs. world's top players
Sad hearing about Ray McDonald’s arrest. I spent the day at his parents’ house when he was drafted. Great people.
Beautiful day in Chicago. Busy day on the lake. http://t.co/SdAsXAPsfs
Ricky played 19 minutes, had 6 pts (1/4 FGs), 7 asts, 5 rebs, a steal, 2 TOs in Spain's 91-54 rout of Egypt in today's FIBA World Cup game
With Terry, Garcia will no longer be Rockets' oldest player and Dwight Howard will not be most experienced. Terry will be 37 yo, 15-yr vet.
Victor Claver finishing an alley-oop on an unsuspecting Egyptian player http://t.co/peMYnVfZSf
That's what the Sox invested in.
He told me that Dunn was a guy that had a passion for hunting and fishing, and just so happened to be able to hit a baseball really far.
I actually thought Gee had a chance to defend his way into Rockets rotation, but that was before signing of Papanikolaou.
By the way, a highly-regarded MLB scout was right on the money about Adam Dunn when the Sox first signed him.
WNBA telecasts are dope because they actually mic up the coaches for their actual playcalls not just "WE NEED MORE ENERGY."
World Cup. USA 98-77 Turkey 77. Shock averted with Kenneth Faried coming up big
Rockets deal for Terry won't be complete for several weeks until can aggregate contracts in trade. Besides Gee, unguaranteeds in deal TBD.
jesus Maya Moore
Since June, Alonzo Gee has been member of Cavs, Pelicans, Rockets & now (per Yahoo report) Kings. Yet you must wait 30 days to trade rookie.
USA pulls away to win 98-77. Big second half for Davis and Faried was great all night to get them out of the halftime hole.
Brittney Griner just had two incredible blocks in a row.
Mercury-Lynx is 70-69 with three minutes to go on ABC, btw.
Jason Terry--nearly 37--has battled injuries and looked diminished the last two years. Low risk for Rockets though; didn't give up much.
I'm shipping up to Boston...
Sacramento will send Houston two second-round picks in deal, including one second via the Knicks, league sources tell Yahoo.
Team USA overcomes sluggish first half to beat Turkey, 98-77. Anthony Davis scored 19 points, all coming in the second half.
Turkey must be proud of how their National Team played against Team USA. Ataman prepared the game perfectly and they fought hard for 40'
Mason Plumlee played four minutes, Kenneth Faried and Anthony Davis combined for 41 points and Team USA improved to 2-0 in Group C play
I never thought I'd ever fall in love. But I'm marrying Plunkett. Bye. ✌️
And it is not at all shocking that B/R's readership would be incredibly offended by independent thought that is not team-mandated.
Bleacher Report readers are furious that the site uses my stuff. All due respect to B/R's new hires, but I don't want my stuff on that site.
Anthony Davis' work appears done. If so, finishes with 19 points, 6 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2 steals. Went 8-11 from field (4 dunks, 2 tip-ins)
Terry probably not going to help HOU finish better then 16th out of 16 teams in playoff defensive efficiency
This fourth quarter ...
Thanks for nothing, Brewers...
Crowd booing Derrick Rose heavily for passive play.
USA leading 95-69 with just under three left. Fans chanting for tapas with 100 points
Last year I said Anthony Davis was a sleeper MVP pick...he should be top-5 this season
Fran Frascilla doing Hubie Brown $$
I think at halftime - among other things - coach K reminded his guards that Anthony Davis is on the Team USA roster.
So much for a quiet game by Anthony Davis. He had 0 points at halftime, partly due to picking up 2 fouls. Davis up to 19 points in 2nd half
Coach K on bench, "Is it Ok to play Anthony Davis every minute of every game?" Thibs: "Don't worry about it."
In Mexico's loss to Slovenia, Gustavo Ayon scored 23 points, grabbed 3 rebounds, and blocked 1 shot.
The timing of Faried’s cuts is exquisite.
People that didn't watch this game are not going to believe Team USA was down by five at halftime when they see the final score.
Anthony Davis with a pair of plays of the game with lob slam from behind and lefty tip lob as USA goes ahead 82-63
Still take DRose over Irving on any day that ends in Y ... but the difference in that gap closing could decide the Eastern Conference Chip.
In a span of only 59 seconds, Anthony Davis threw down two alley oop dunks, then tipped in another oop for an and-one. USA 82-63 at 6:05
Anthony Davis went scoreless in the first half. He now has 17 points, just one shy of Faried's game-high 18.
Team USA finally figures out attacking the zone is good. Took a half, but mission accomplished.
Anthony Davis has taken over....reppin the city of Chicago...
AD, don't hurt 'em.
So much for "stunning" upset--USA up 17 after a wicked Anthony Davis slam
Rose back in ... mop-up time?
Rose back into game along with Rudy Gay with USA ahead 15 and about 8 minutes remaining.
James Harden wants credit for the hockey assist on that Davis throwdown.
If KIrving is confident and capable enough to guard DRose come playoff time, and LeBron doesn't ... game-changer!
The Manimal and The Brow keeping The Holiday Weekend intact.
Rose on floor
From down five at halftime to up 16, Team USA hits you in waves.
Watching Ricky lobbing passes to Ibaka, etc., for Spain...can only imagine his smiles when he's throwing to Wiggins, Thad, Zach, etc...
Houston will send package of non-guranteed contracts to Kings, including Alonzo Gee, sources said. Kings sending future second to Rockets.
US finally safe now early in fourth with good second-half energy from Faried and Davis. Rose finally gets in up 16 with 7:41 left.
I guess the dysfunctional Toronto FC folks can't blame the old regime..those who were "afraid to win" on the latest decision made today.
Irving wanted no part of DRose that first week, but by the time they arrived in Chicago was going right at him in scrimmages.
Starting to look like it's all gravy now over Turkey as USA takes 74-60 lead and shooting free throws.
It's been interesting to watch KIrving get his confidence since Team USA first started up in Vegas last month.
USA hadn't been tested at all before today, so were probably due for a sluggish performance. Lead is now 14 pts early in 4thQ vs. Turkey.
Harden would always rather get fouled than score. Effective, but no fun to watch.
Certainly not all or most 49ers fans are blindly backing wayward players. I just answer the angriest because stupidity needs to be zapped.
USA by 14---no appearance of Rose in 2nd half
I love Kenneth Faried. That is all.
As he goes to the bench, round of applause for Kenneth Fareid from neutral crowd.
Sacramento is finalizing a deal to send guard Jason Terry to the Houston Rockets, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.
Turkey trying to draw the yellow card.
Asik has been a turnover machine today; 5 so far. Shouldn't be as glaring w/ the Pels, as the ball won't be in his hands nearly as much.
Team USA up by 6 over Turkey heading into 4thQ. Rose didn't play in the 3rdQ.
Anthony Davis scored 11 points in 3rd qtr to spearhead USA's 31-20 edge. USA up 66-60 entering 4th. Omer Asik 6 pts, 8 reb, 3 blk
Coach K leaning on Kyrie Irving the entire 3rd quarter. Rose doesn't see the floor. Well, he saw it, just didn't step on it.
Rose didn't play 3rd Q
Turkey three straight turnovers including consecutive by Asik.
After 3--USA 66-60
Plumlee getting some big minutes here
What a great, opportunistic effort play by Faried.
Coach K goes to Plumlee to spell Davis after Cousins' poor first half. Irving goes whole way in third while Rose sits after his.
For all the talk about the guard play, Anthony Davis and Kenneth Faried are carrying Team USA.
Faried - All-Man Team.
Kenneth Faried = New school Buck Williams
Love Faried....Denver needs to lock him up---
Faried with a big steal on Omer Asik and another of his dunks. Faried’s energy in the game is impressive
Stiles Switch is the Deron Williams of Austin barbecue. Proven capacity for absolute brilliance, yet perplexingly unreliable.
Davis & Faried have a combined 25 points on 16 shots, and Team USA hardly went to them inside in the first half. Keep feeding the big boys.
Krzyzewski hasn't gone back to Rose in third quarter as usually has after turnover prone first half.
Final group of Portland Classic tees off in about 10 minutes. Right now there are 14 golfers within two shots of the top score, -11.
Curry just got FIBA-ed!
These referees have been brutal.
Anthony Davis has jump started Team USA in 3rd quarter, controlling the pace much better now. Team USA leading Turkey, 64-59.
Take away the two gold-medal games vs Spain, not much second-half trouble for US in recent years. Lithuania in '12, Brazil in '10 about all.
That last Davis block. Wow. Didn't block it down or out of bounds. Somehow directed it to a teammate.
Coach K staying away from DRose in the third, and USA playing better. Interesting.
Big Hit Steph!!!
Best NBA player from Chicago currently playing?
Faried-Davis===energy. Something you can't coach.. Effort !
Turkey is not going away. Team USA seems content trading baskets. That might prove costly.
Golden State basketball means no offensive patience.
Fascinated by the ideological construct of me "owing the fans" an apology. For saying the 49ers should hold their players accountable?
The Turks are 5-for-5 on 3s in this third quarter. Team USA can't shake 'em. 59-all with 3:10 to go in the period
Kyle Korver would have looked real nice against the match-up zone right about now.
U.S. is starting to score easily on Turkey, w/ Anthony Davis awaking for big third quarter. Still, Turkey's determined. Popping 3's. 59-all.
I've really liked Curry's defensive effort with Team USA.
My prediction that Kenneth Faried wouldn't be that good in FIBA ball is looking awful so far.
Kyrie Irving just redefined "floater.''
Kyrie just hit the shot of the yeae
Now, this looks like USA basketball...
Kenneth Faried with the DUNK brings Team USA up by 2 vs Turkey: 53-51
Besides playing poorly, Team USA getting FIBA-ed by officials.
Looks like the Jamaal Franklin era has come to an end in Memphis according to several reports.
Do the teams get to keep these Peak beach towels after the tourney is over?
After going scoreless in the first half against Turkey, Anthony Davis has scored nine points in the opening 3 minutes of 3rd quarter.
Luckily for US, Omer Asik can't shoot free throws
Pelicans teammates Omer Asik and Anthony Davis now matched up often in 2nd half. Davis 9 quick points in 2:52 span. Turkey up 51-48 in 3rd
Team USA making the game a more physical affair now.
Anthony Davis asserting himself much, much better so far in the second half. 9 points in a little over 3 minutes.
Unsportsmanlike foul against Team USA
One of Stoll's standard bearers asked Stoll if she could play for Aloha instead of Beaverton.
is that Christina Hendricks in this "Selfie" show on ABC or did they just get someone who looks like her?
Regardless of Seastrunk's future, take solace in Emmanuel Ogbuehi joining the Browns' practice squad and Chigbo Anunoby joining the Titans.
Turkey knocking down 3 after 3 after 3....USA looks out of sync...Turkey 51-45-3rd quarter
Team USA is down 51-45 to Turkey in the 3rd.
Davis has woken up, big start to second half. But Turkey hitting some 3s to keep the lead at 6, 7:16 left in the third.
Wow. You don't want to give a team confidence. Turkey can't miss now.
So far, Turkey has held off the big U.S. run you'd expect out of halftime and started banging three's. Turkey, 51-45.
On a team w/ two top-10 guys (Curry and Harden) + one with top-10 potential (Rose), Anthony Davis has established himself as the best player
Sort of a turnaround as Turkey feasting on Americans
Stoll shot 1-under 71 and finished at 1 under for the tournament. Drew good galleries all week, too.
Turkey, remember, needed a wild card just to get to Spain after going 1-4 at EuroBasket 2013. Best they've played in ages
Hilarious scene with Gigi Stoll and her friends after her round as they asked her to sign all manner of, errr, body parts.
Federer down a quick 1-4 to Granollers...Rain seems imminent.
Folks who know Newburyport: any good dinner recommendations?
Grizzlies waived Jamaal Franklin cause drafted Jordan Adams, and need that roster spot. Will have to have 3rd pg with Calathes suspended
Maybe this is what happens when Rose plays back-to-back nights.
World Cup. USA hasn’t lost since 2006, but trails Turkey 40-35 at half-time. Turks transformed since EuroBasket 2013 where they were dire.
Team USA losing 40-35 at halftime to Turkey, unable to control the pace of the game.A.Davis 0 pts, 1 reb. O.Asik - 3 pts,7 rebs.
Rose has no assists, two turnovers and is 0 for 2 in 9 minutes. Again, a lot would have to happen, but one of them is so far.
Raul Neto has played very well in the world cup so far. has displayed quickness and can really pass the ball
USA has missed tons of good shot, too. Also hurting itself with all the fouls, helping Turkey keep the game in the halfcourt.
Rose has his one or two highlights every game, but I don't think he's proven he would've been a better fit than Lillard thus far.
With USA down 5 at half, Turkey has demonstrated a good blueprint in WC, no matter what happens in 2nd half. Control pace, boards, zone up.
Follow dunk, followed by a block, for Ibaka. Hamstring seems OK.
USA need help. Bring back Lamar Odom and Chauncey Billups, beat Turks in 2010.
Outstanding half for Turkey, leading USA 40-35 at intermission. Omer Asik 3 pts, 7 reb, 2 blk. Anthony Davis (1reb/1 blk/1 stl) 2 fouls
Ibaka about to get his first World Cup action for Spain, who is up 22-6 late in the first quarter.
U.S. trailing Turkey 40-35 at half. Turkey coach Ergin Ataman delivering a clinic. Also, they didn't let USA's coach bring ACC officials.
Anthony Davis, who has been the best USA player this summer, wasn't even best Pelicans big man on the floor in the first half. Asik was.
Turkey up 5 over Team USA at half.....this is not a typo.
There's a lot of the "winning the offseason" reaction to the practice squad signees. It's the practice squad, not the Ring of Fame.
Brutal 1st half for USA team and Rose as last play for Rose ends in Rose's 3rd turnover on pass and Turkey 40-35 lead. But, hey, moving well
Should probably reiterate that Turkey is a top-10 in the world and the days of the US steamrolling the world without the A-squad are over
I'm not ready to say this feels Greece-y. Not yet.
Well, well. Halftime score: Turkey 40, USA 35. Same Turkey team that was outplayed for 35 minutes by New Zealand on Saturday.
Did Simeon HS never face a zone defense? Bad, bad, bad.
Time for Team USA to stop fouling and gambling. Turkey's 18 trips to FT line have only helped 'em control the pace. Turks LEAD 40-35 at HT
This is the best game played by Turkey NT in years. I remember them from Eurobasket 2013. They are completely another team with other faces
Even on TV thousands of miles away, the frustration on Derrick Rose's face is obvious. He just isn't playing very well right now.
