In the end, Kyle Kuzma was the odd man out, not San Antonio’s Derrick White. Though, it wasn’t a performance-based decision. The Lakers forward didn’t...

It was a good time had by all (except for the Padres). The wacky nicknames. The weird cleats. The nice weather. And even one of the game's worst-hitting pitchers, Eduardo Rodriguez, got to score a run. ("Bad. He might be one of the worst, for sure. He’s bad," said J.D. Martinez of the Red Sox'...

When Marcus Smart didn’t play one minute against the Australian Boomers for Team USA on Thursday, it looked like he might be the odd man out. Although Smart is the best defender on the team, he’s coming off an injury and Gregg Popovich appears to have his rotations set. So why not keep Derrick...

FOXBOROUGH -- Thursday was a big night for Jarrett Stidham. The rookie played just over two quarters in the 10-3 win over the Panthers, as he relieved Tom Brady late in the second quarter and then played the rest of the game. While he went 15-for-19 with 134 yards passing, it wasn't as good of a...

The story of the hat Tom Brady wore to and from Thursday night’s preseason contest with the Panthers at Gillette Stadium – sticking with the facts, no “Curious George” Man With The Yellow Hat jokes here – is apparently a simple one.

Say what you will about the NFL -- and I have been calling those occupying the league offices on Park Avenue a bunch of feces throwing baboons for a very long time -- but give them this: they know their audience. They don’t show any respect for their audience but they do know us. More proof of that...
