The Royals announced Monday that they’ve selected the contract of veteran first baseman Lucas Duda and requested unconditional release waivers on outfielder Brian Goodwin. Duda will make the Kansas City Opening Day roster, while the out-of-options Goodwin, who’d previously been viewed as a strong candidate to log ample time in right field this coming season, […]

Regular reader Dick Snyder asked me to make predictions for the 2019 baseball season, which is always a dicey endeavor, but here they are! (Yes, I take requests.)

JOS BUTTLER was left furious after Ravi Ashwin ‘Mankaded’ him in the Indian Premier League. The England star had been in fine form, with 69 from just 43 balls for Rajasthan Royals in their clash with Kings XI Punjab. Ravi Ashwin left Jos Buttler furious after a ‘Mankad’ run out during the IPL Ravi Ashwin, considered by some as the best bowler in the world, had the ball and appeared to be in his full stride, with Sanju Samson facing him. Buttler, at the non-striker’s end, began to creep forward as Ashwin ran to the crease. But rather than bowl the ball, Ashwin turned and knocked Buttler’s stumps off – running him out. The England star was left raging at the dismissal and watching fans and players shared his anger. Former England captain Michael Vaughan said: “If Jos Buttler had been warned well that’s fine… if he hasn’t and it’s the first time I think Ravi Ashwin is completely out of order “Watch how often this happens from now on!” One day captain said Ashwin’s actions set a “terrible example” to kids watching. “I can’t believe what I’m seeing,” he wrote on social media. “Terrible example to set for young kids coming through. In time I think Ashwin will regret that.” New Zealand international Mitchell McClenaghan was also not impressed, writing: “What an absolute disgrace! “Jos Buttler spitting tacs and rightfully so!” This type of run out is named after Vinoo Mankad, who run out Bill Brown when India played Australia in a Test match in December 1947.

One of my good friends is a die-hard Oakland Raiders fan.  Those of you who follow pro football know that Oakland has fallen on hard times recently.  They went from being one of the best teams in the league two years ago to one of the worst teams in 2018 with a dismal 4-12 record.  […]

PHOENIX — As NFL owners at the league’s annual meeting mull what would be the third change to overtime this decade, they’re being shown some surprising statistics on that front. That is, teams that get the ball first in overtime don’t score nearly as often as you probably think. The Kansas City Chiefs are proposing […]
