Report: Chapman 'one million percent' to opt out of contract

Sports
The MLB free agent market has not been kind to many players over the past few years, but Aroldis Chapman is apparently confident he can land another massive contract next winter.Chapman signed a five-year, $86 million deal with the New York Yankees prior to the 2017 season, but it contains player options of $15 million per season for the last two years. One player who is friends with the left-hander told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic that Chapman is “one million percent” going to become a free agent after the season.That would mean leaving $30 million on the table, which may be somewhat risky considering Chapman will turn 32 in February. However, as Rosenthal notes, the Yankees closer saw Craig Kimbrel sign a three-year, $43 million contract with the Chicago Cubs last month after sitting out a significant portion of the season. Chapman should be able to get at least that, which would be more guaranteed money than the $30 million left on his current contract....

Astros unhappy Angels got 'free shot' to plunk Marisnick

Sports
The Angels plunked Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick on Tuesday in what may have been considered retaliation.The incident happened during the sixth inning, leading players on both teams to clear their benches after Noe Ramirez threw a pitch that hit Marisnick. Both sides were given a warning as a heated verbal exchange broke out between Angels first baseman Albert Pujols and Astros pitchers Lance McCullers Jr. and Justin Verlander, among others in Houston's dugout.“This was not a surprise,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch told reporters (via MLB.com). “I wish they would’ve handled it better. [The pitch] was too high. If they’re gonna hit guys, they need to hit guys the right way.”Hinch expressed his displeasure, accusing Ramirez of intentionally hitting Marisnick and claiming it was "a free shot." Tuesday's game marked Marisnick's first game against the Angles since he collided with Los Angeles catcher Jonathan Lucroy at home plate, leaving Lucroy with a concussion and a broken nose....

Saban: 'Free agency' unhealthy for NCAA football

Alabama's Nick Saban said NCAA has become "very liberal" in granting waivers to transfer players, which makes them immediately eligible to play for their new teams. Saban added that the recent increase in approvals is turning the college football scene into "free agency."At SEC media days in Birmingham, Ala., Saban said that the transfer portal itself, which was introduced in 2018, is not a bad thing but took issue with the number of waivers given to players who enter and transfer programs."I think the spirit of the transfer portal in and of itself is a positive thing for players," Saban said. "You know, I think when we started with the transfer portal, it was a mechanism for players to be able to say I'm transferring, so everybody knows that I'm transferring, so if that creates opportunities for me to go different places, then that's a good thing for the player."...

Garoppolo says there is no comparison to learning from Brady

Sports
Jimmy Garoppolo learned a thing or two from Tom Brady, even as a backup.“The preparation as a whole was tremendous just to see it, to be in the same room as it, to learn from it,” Garoppolo told The Ringer in a recent interview. “To be a rookie and see that, it was invaluable. I can barely put it into words.”While Brady and Garoppolo reportedly had an intense, competitive relationship that resulted in them “wanting to kill each other” at times, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback had high praise for the experience.“What you learn is playing the game within the game, that’s a big part of Tom,” he continued. “I don’t even know if he told me that [directly], but he would always talk about the game within the game. He would talk about the snap count, and he’d say ‘you’re going to go on two on this play’ and he’d have a specific reason. That’s not the coaches telling you, that’s the player playing the game within the game. It’s the little things, the little details and how he ties them all together — that’s what separates you.”...

Mesut Ozil's decline shows soccer's No. 10s are a dying breed

We reached Peak Attacking Midfielder some time between August 2015 and May 2016. It might've been on Feb. 2, or perhaps it was a couple of days after Christmas. There's a case for mid October and a couple candidates from late September, too.The precise day, though, is less important than the totality of them. Most people remember the 2015-16 Premier League season as the one when Leicester City shocked the world and shattered the odds. But that campaign was also host to the greatest individual creative season this decade -- in any of the Big Five leagues across Europe.Across 35 games that season, Arsenal's Mesut Ozil created 146 total chances -- 20 more than any other player since 2010, according to TruMedia data. His 19 assists are the high-water mark in the Premier League this decade, as are the 28 Big Chances (defined by Opta as "a situation where a player should reasonably be expected to score") he created. From Sep. 26 through Nov. 21, Ozil recorded an assist in seven straight games, something no Premier League player had ever done before and no one's done since. In fact, only 18 other players in the league that year even reached seven assists across the entire season....

Five Reasons Why the Open Is Golf's Most Charming Tournament

Sports
Golf tournaments are in the business of identity cultivation. The best way to stick out from the sea of Safeway Opens and Rocket Mortgage Classics is to carve out a niche. To be known for something. Some tournaments have been more successful at this than others. The Genesis Open has emerged as a can’t-miss stop because its host venue, Riviera Country Club, is perhaps the best non-major track on the PGA Tour schedule. Other tournaments not blessed with iconic golf courses have found their own ways to stand out. The Travelers Championship, for example, transformed from an afterthought to a firmly above-average event by treating everyone one of its participants—and their families—like superstars.  ...

FC Barcelona no estaría dispuesto a fichar a Neymar salvo que sea mediante un trueque

Sports
La situación del delantero brasileño Neymar parece cada días más compleja. Con los desplantes que le ha realizado a su actual club para presionar su salida ha conseguido muy poco, y como si no fuera suficiente, desde el FC Barcelona no estarían ayudando mucho a que se pueda gestionar su regreso.Según información del diario Mundo Deportivo, la dirigencia del FC Barcelona sigue tratando como indiferente ante el público la situación de Neymar, y, aunque si han existido tibios acercamientos con el PSG para tratar de negociar, la decisión de no pagar un euro por el jugador y solo ir al intercambio con otros fichajes no es lo que se espera en París.Con casi 250 millones de euros gastados en los fichajes de Griezmann, De Jong y Neto, y sobretodo acordándose del desplante de Neymar hace dos años cuando los plantó al cierre del mercado de pases para marcharse a Francia, Bartomeu no está dispuesto a pagar por el jugador, sino poner en la mesa a nombres como los de Coutinho, Rakitic y Dembelé (en el combo que desee el PSG) como pago por el brasileño....

2nd October 2018: Bayern Munich vs. Ajax. UEFA Champions League. Group E.Serge Gnabry latches onto the ball on the left flank and with one touch, bursts past the fairly hapless Noussair Mazraoui on the left flank. He then, at maximum Usain Bolt-circa-2009 speed, tries to do the same against Ajax's 19-year-old centre back.It doesn't work.The soon-to-be Bayern Munich Player of the Year knocks the ball forward toward the touchline, but this time, he is hounded down. He is out-paced, then out-muscled.In the blink of an eye, Gnabry has gone from the brink of crossing the ball from the left-side of the penalty area, to watching the ball loop up toward Ajax's Dusan Tadic on the halfway line.In the blink of an eye, Ajax starlet Matthijs de Ligt has, with a slap-wrap tackle, won the ball back and then coolly clipped the ball into the centre of the park....

Each is 1/162nd of an expertly divided pie.The next two weeks' worth of games, though? They are different. Even the strictest adherents to the they-all-count-equally crowd will admit as much. That especially goes in 2019, when Major League Baseball's playoff picture consists of a few have-lots, a vast majority of have-somes and six distinct have-nots.

Coastal preview: Get ready for more chaos and unpredictability

Sports
You have to give the ACC Coastal this: It's not boring. It hasn't been all that good either, mind you -- its champion hasn't won the conference title game since 2010. In eight years, more Coastal champs have finished 50th or worse in S&P+ (three) than have finished in the top 20 (two). Still, when there's no dominant team, at least you end up with unpredictability. In five of the past six seasons, a team predicted fourth or worse in the preseason ACC media poll won the division. Last year's champ, Pitt, was picked fifth. Almost anything can happen here -- except what's actually supposed to.That makes this season particularly intriguing because, well, nothing is "supposed to" happen. Miami will likely be the preseason division favorite, but we still don't know if the Hurricanes have a quarterback, and it would be hard for anything beyond "Georgia Tech, division champ" to surprise us much. So ... congrats in advance to the Yellow Jackets....

Louisville might. Syracuse and NC State will have a good shot at top-30 or top-40 performances. But aside from Clemson, the average S&P+ ranking in this division was 60.7 and is projected to be 58.7 this fall.

How Dos Anjos' volume could be the difference against Edwards

Sports
Rafael dos Anjos avoided the first three-fight losing streak of his career with a gritty fourth round submission over Kevin Lee in May. In the process, he held on to his place as the UFC's No. 4-ranked contender in the UFC welterweight division. In order to remain in the conversation as a future challenger to champion Kamaru Usman, Dos Anjos will need to defeat another young prospect this weekend as he faces Leon Edwards on Saturday (ESPN, 6 p.m. ET).Edwards, aka "Rocky", has been fighting in the UFC since 2014 and is currently riding a seven-fight winning streak, which has lifted him to No. 12 in the UFC's welterweight rankings. During his run he's developed a conservative style that has carried him to multiple decision victories, and Edwards will face a serious test of how that style contrasts with Dos Anjos' all around game....

Rory or the field? Our experts make their picks for The Open

Sports
The Open can be unpredictable. The weather can change -- sunny one minute, sideways rain the next. Add in the unknown with this Open: The oldest major is at Royal Portrush for the first time in 68 years. So, aside from a few locals who grew up around these links -- Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell, Darren Clarke and Brooks Koepka's caddie, Ricky Elliott -- almost the entire field comes in with little knowledge of the venue.So what will happen? Our experts take their swings.Matt Barrie, ESPN Open champion: Tommy Fleetwood Why he'll win: I'm not getting suckered in to the "home course" narrative when it comes to Rory McIlroy. But I will fall into the European trap, and Tommy Fleetwood fits perfectly. Coming off a T-12 at Carnoustie last year and four top 10s this year, Fleetwood has the game to quietly stay in the hunt going into the weekend. His scoring average has been spotty this year, but he'll find his comfort at Royal Portrush and win his first major....

Why things don't look good for Tiger and other big Open questions

PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland -- Tiger Woods doesn't sound confident. Brooks Koepka is always confident. Rory McIlroy is at home, which should make him confident.On a venue few have seen before -- Royal Portrush last hosted The Open 68 years ago -- there are plenty of intriguing subplots as the year's last major gets set to tee off.Bob Harig: It is difficult to envision that at the moment. The lack of competitive golf is simply too much to overcome. Taking a vacation is understandable. Managing the various ailments that come from four back surgeries is prudent. But 10 rounds of competitive golf in three months is far from ideal. Then there is the entire aspect of learning a new golf course and putting on slow links greens and dealing with the potential for more poor weather. A lot needs to go right for Tiger to be a factor at Royal Portrush....

Kapler, Neris ejected after throwing at Dodgers

Sports
The Philadelphia Phillies are a complete and utter mess right now. That reared its ugly head late in Tuesday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.Holding a mere 6-5 lead and having already given up three runs in the inning, Philadelphia pitcher Hector Neris yielded a three-run home run to Dodgers youngster Matt Beaty.The very next pitch saw David Freese hit in the back with a 95 mile-per-hour fastball. It led to both Neris and Phillies manager Gabe Kapler being ejected from the game.We’re not exactly sure what Philadelphia’s issue with Beaty was. He did not stand at home plate watching the homer. He did not make any real motions crossing the plate.Sure the Dodgers’ dugout was excited. But that’s to be expected after dropping six runs before a single out was recorded in the ninth inning....
