- October 06, 2016

The BCCI's SGM also chose to release huge amounts as payments to its member associations, against the directions of the Lodha panel. Has BCCI not done anything at all these years, these questions need to be answered. If we don't have money how will we organise matches. So far, seven associations have communicated their inability to host games in the home season, while nine have inquired about the matter. (more...)

It's still surprising the Wildcats have a conference win. Another day, another dollar. "And if you play well and keep them in it, it's a big advantage".

Bumgarner, Gillaspie lead Giants over Mets 3-0; Cubs next
- October 06, 2016

NEW YORK-We were promised a pitching duel, and we sure got one. If the Mets want to score off of Bumgarner then Astrubel Cabrera or Jose Reyes will have to get a couple of big knocks. He allowed 48 stolen bases this season, 18 more than any other pitcher and most in the majors since 2001. Then came a string of injuries and under performance from key players, beginning with franchise third baseman David Wright , who played his last game of the season on May 27th before undergoing ...

Toronto police have released a photograph of a baseball fan believed to have thrown a beer at an Orioles player during last night's American League Wild-Card game at the Rogers Centre. Osuna said doctors did not find anything that was a concern. "I've been pitching a lot lately. They're just not biased for us", he said. Rougned Odor was having none of Bautista's hard slide, and we got "the punch". (more...)
Saturday's recap: Twins 6, White Sox 0
- October 06, 2016

Leury Garcia appeared to misjudge it as it carried toward the wall. "Maybe a chip on the shoulder from being traded that first time, especially being there for so long and them moving me", Santiago said. He tied the American League record with seven straight strikeouts to begin the game. Duffey gave up six hits while getting six outs. He struck out six to leave him with 233 and a 3.34 ERA. (more...)

Vikings frustrate Beckham, Giants while getting to 4-0 Vikings frustrate Beckham, Giants while getting to 4-0
- October 06, 2016

One could say that Beckham is complaining, and some have gone so far as to question whether Beckham is defined as the "villain" in the NFL. "I don't think we have to go and just change up everything". "Bradford sat out the opener (the Vikings got two defensive touchdowns and won by nine at Tennessee) and started the next three Minnesota games". A week later, Detroit's Marvin Jones had 205 yards and two scores on six catches. (more...)

And Lauda joined those who were highly critical of Sebastian Vettel's first-corner move, which had shunted Rosberg into his spin in the first place. "I don't have to comment on what Max said". He's won two championships so far with us, we've finished the most races ever. Not only that, he also convinced team principal Christian Horner , plus Verstappen and Rosberg, to also drink from the unconventional vessel. (more...)

With 300 yards receiving, Jones keeps Falcons soaring
- October 06, 2016

I think it's safe to say we got the better end of the trade with Cleveland. Quarterback Cam Newton left Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons and entered the concussion protocol. Richard Sherman had two interceptions and Earl Thomas another as QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets couldn't get much going against the NFL's No. 1-ranked defence. (more...)
ACC sticking with eight-game conference football schedule
- October 06, 2016

According to the Daily Press , ESPN preferred that the conference adopt either the nine-plus-one or eight-plus-two model, but it was not a requirement. That would have required Wake Forest to play at least ten games per season against Power Five opponents, which means that the program would have had a much more hard time playing in bowl games.
