→ Mookie Betts named best defensive player in baseball

Nice little feather in the cap for Mookie.

Κ

→ Mookie Betts wins Gold Glove

The future is bright the core of the Red Sox. Here’s hoping Dombrowski can put a complete team around them.

Κ

→ Clemson’s Watson, Gallman and others ‘planning on moving on’ to NFL in 2017

Make this season count, then.

Κ

→ A.J. Green embarrasses Darrelle Revis all day long in Bengals’ win

“Revis Island” seems like a pretty comfortable place to be these days.

Κ

→ NFL, NFLPA officially launch investigation into Cam Newton’s medical treatment

“After getting crushed in the media for 2 days, we’ve decided we should probably look into this…” – A person familiar with the matter.

Κ

→ Video: Mookie Betts made a ridiculous throw last night

And I thought JBJ was the one with the arm.

Κ

→ Andrew Benintendi makes sure you’ll know his name after this insane catch

One of the benefits of the Red Sox scuffling this season has been Benintendi getting called up. He’s doing great so far.

Κ

→ Clemson QB Deshaun Watson takes out $5 million insurance policy

As he should.

Κ

→ Golf showed it can deliver Olympic drama in its return to the Games

I like golf. I watch golf. I watched none of this. It just didn’t feel right as an Olypmics sport to me.

Κ

→ Blake Swihart to undergo season-ending ankle surgery

This is a bummer. On the plus side, maybe he go back to being a catcher when he’s heeled up. I feel like Benintendi might not be giving up left field any time soon.

Κ

→ Report: Alabama grants release to Maurice Smith, SEC waiver approval awaits

You know that Saban is pissed about this (because he’s always pissed about something), but Bama finally did the right thing.

Κ

→ Clemson picked to repeat as ACC champions

No pressure or anything.

Κ

→ Report: Steelers’ Le’Veon Bell facing 4-game suspension

That’s not forget that Tom Brady is the only real cheater in the NFL though….

Κ

→ Big 12 now says it will immediately consider expansion candidates

And so it begins…again…

Κ

→ Tom Brady is innocent

Joe Posnanski bringing the heat:

I think Tom Brady is unequivocally, unambiguously, thoroughly and 100-percent innocent of any and all charges of deflating footballs in a cheating capacity. I don’t think he ever asked anyone to illegally deflate footballs. I don’t think he wanted footballs inflated below NFL standards. I think the whole thing — every last page of the testimony, every last leak to the media, every text made public, every curious statistic like the one showing the Patriots fumbled less than other teams and every blunder Brady made along the way, like his awkward press conference and the destruction of his phone — was a bunch of phony-baloney nonsense that was either directly or indirectly inspired by a made-up NFL witch hunt. I think he’s entirely innocent.

Κ

→ MLB says managers need to cool it on arguing

Or, you know, the MLB could hire competent umpires instead of the jokers making all these horrible calls.

Κ

→ Clemson won’t charge for student tickets in 2016

I think this was the right move. Good job, Clemson.

Κ

→ Patriots rookie WR Malcolm Mitchell named Georgia’s children’s book author of the year

It’s hard not to root for this guy.

Κ

→ Report: Marcus Lattimore can’t have paid position at South Carolina

I have no love lost for South Carolina, but this is outrageous. The NCAA is a disgrace.

Κ

→ Seventh-grader shoots down NFL’s grand deflate-gate claims

Is it really that surprising that a 7th grader can figure out something that Goodell can’t?
