Pineda's folly could sink the season
BOSTON -- Just in case Michael Pineda never makes it as a New York Yankee, he decided to prep himself for a second career as a stand-up comic. How else can anyone explain a "Saturday Night Live" skit disguised as a Fenway Park start against the defending World Series champs? Funny? This was Kevin Hart times Steve Carell funny. The same pitcher who used pine tar on his throwing hand in his last start against the Boston Red Sox, only to get away with it, decided to apply the same PED (performance-enhancing dirt) to the right side of his neck Wednesday night, in full view of millions of viewers and, ultimately, the umpire who tossed him from the game. Gerry Davis marched to the mound in the middle of Grady Sizemore's second-inning at-bat, on John Farrell's request. Nobody on the visiting side of this hostile rivalry blamed Farrell in the least. In fact, the Yankees all but nominated him for Manager of the Year. "I would want my...
Nowitzki sets tone for Game 2 win
SAN ANTONIO -- Sometimes, for a superstar such as Dirk Nowitzki, it's not about the points you score. Or the rebounds you grab. Or the passes you make. Sometimes, it's just about the will to win, which is as intense as it has ever been. That's why 35-year-old Dirk, playing in his 130th playoff game during his 16th NBA season dived for a loose ball during the third quarter Wednesday night at AT&T Center. He corralled the ball near midcourt and fired a pass Monta Ellis for a driving layup against the Spurs. It's that type of competitive spirit the Mavs displayed all night against San Antonio as they won their first playoff game since beating Miami for the title in June 2011. It's why they kicked the Spurs' butt in Game 2 of this Western Conference quarterfinal. Dallas 113, San Antonio 92. "Sometimes, we get in trouble when we don't get those loose balls, those 50-50 balls," Dirk said. "Sometimes, if you want to win on...
SB rematch among 2014's top games
The NFL released its 2014 schedule Wednesday, so let the fun begin. It starts in the West. The Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl but play in a division that could have four teams with winning records. That makes things tougher for the AFC West, which had three playoff teams last year but faces the NFC West this year. Last year, Denver, Kansas City and San Diego piled on for 11 wins in 12 games against the NFC East. From Peyton Manning playing against Andrew Luck to Lovie Smith coaching against Chicago, there are plenty of fascinating matchups. Here are the five games I'm looking forward to most: 1. San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks, Sunday, Dec. 14: Could this NFC West rivalry get any better? Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman went on a long rant aimed at 49ers WR  Michael Crabtree after tipping a pass that was intercepted by linebacker Malcolm Smith to seal Seattle's...
