    Chicago Cubs right fielder Seiya Suzuki still is mulling whether to represent his country in the World Baseball Classic. Team Japan manager Hideki Kuriyama said Tuesday at the winter meetings that the team will give Suzuki as much time as possible to decide — even if that means his decision lingers into February. “I’m really just waiting on his response,” Kuriyama said through an interpreter. “It’s been a rocky year with everything — health concerns, playing time, everything considered. Really we’re waiting on the club, we’re waiting on everything on his side of the response. “There’s no doubt he’s the No. 1 outfielder in Japan and we really want him to play on this team.” Kuriyama wouldn’t say if it’s an all-or-nothing situation for Suzuki to commit to playing in the entire WBC or whether he could participate in part of it. The semifinals and final are scheduled for March 19-21 in Miami, while Japan’s pool play (March 9-13) and quarterfinals (March 15-16) will be played in Toyko. Although rules have not been officially determined for in-tournament roster changes, according...
    The NBA is constantly tinkering with rules and innovations. Inspired by changes in MLB, here are a few things we’d like to see this year. Last day of September! Time to schedule some apple picking, pull out those flannels, and swap iced coffee for hot cider. For baseball, it means one season is about to end, and time for a look-forward to another. Yes, this is still The Whiteboard, a basketball newsletter, but let’s look at some changes the MLB is going through and think about what the tone of the changes would look like in the context of the NBA. For those who don’t know, the MLB is going to undergo radical changes in rules and processes over the next several years in an effort to make the game more watchable and attractive, particularly to a younger audience. Baseball has been slow to adapt, a problem that stems from the purists of the game being unwilling to let it change, even when the change is for the better of the sport. Ultimately, that has put the sport in a...
    Memorial Day offered the New York Yankees their first day off in three weeks but Aaron Judge says he and his teammates would rather be playing. Between May 8 and May 29, the Yankees played 23 games in 22 days. It was a grueling run that started to show its stresses over the last week. While they went 15-8 during that stretch, New York lost five of their last nine, including games on Saturday and Sunday against the Rays. It was after that last game, with a break finally arriving on Memorial Day, that Aaron Judge revealed he’d rather be playing.Aaron Judge says the Yankees want zero days offAfter playing 23 games over 22 days, Aaron Judge on if he welcomes an off day tomorrow: "I think everybody in here wants to play again.

    MSNBC’s Morning Joe aired a graphic video on Friday of Russian violence in Ukraine and kids making heartbreaking statements such as “we want to play with our friends.” The video started with an explosion of a building, followed by a girl who says, “Stop the war. We want to go to school under the quiet sky.” The footage then shows a burning building and a boy who says, “We want to sleep in our beds but not in shelters.” The video then displays people, including a girl, living in fear and a boy who took out his earbuds and says, ‘We’re going to listen to music, but not the explosions.” This is followed by what appears to be a missile hitting a building. “We want to hug our relatives every day,” says a boy. Followed by a couple explosions, another boy says, “We want to eat every day.” The video then shows a rocket in a playground. Following a couple explosions and couple kid remarks, a boy says, “We want to breathe the fresh air, but not the smoke after...
    If Joe Judge’s future as Giants head coach hangs in the balance Sunday, don’t tell his players. “I think he’s probably, as a head coach, the best leader of a group of men I’ve ever seen,” defensive captain Blake Martinez told the Daily News by phone Thursday. Judge, 40, is justifiably under fire for flying off the handle in defense of his program last weekend, for losing five straight by double digits, for winning only 10 of 32 games in two years entering Sunday’s finale at MetLife Stadium between the Giants (4-12) and Washington (6-10). But when The News canvassed leaders of the Giants’ locker room the past few weeks, a theme emerged: the players are firmly behind him. The team isn’t fracturing. They believe it would be a big mistake to pull the plug. They believe this is going to work. “The best way I go about explaining Coach Judge is that he knows everything,” said Martinez, a former Green Bay Packer. “It’s his knowledge, his ability to communicate with anybody on the team,...
    Before we talk about the fun, let’s get one thing out of the way. Mike Glennon was the opposing quarterback Sunday at Soldier Field. Mike Glennon, who has thrown 20 interceptions and 18 touchdown passes over the last six seasons with six teams. Mike Glennon, whom the Chicago Bears paid $18.5 million to play four games in 2017 before benching him for Mitch Trubisky after a four-turnover game. Mike Glennon, who ranks as one of the stains on the Bears front office resume. So the degree of difficulty for the Bears defense wasn’t at a peak in the 29-3 victory over the 4-12 New York Giants, a game with no playoff implications for either team. But that didn’t mean it wasn’t fun for the Bears (6-10) when outside linebacker Trevis Gipson barreled down on Glennon untouched on the first play of the game for a strip-sack that defensive lineman Bilal Nichols recovered. Or when Gipson knocked the ball from Glennon’s hand again in the third quarter, Khyiris Tonga recovered and Gipson broke into his Thor-themed celebration....

    Jill Biden surprises her South Carolina prayer partner Teen arrested for shooting at football game that wounded five © Provided by CBS Sports Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr was recently asked what advice he would impart to someone starting their first NBA head coaching gig. "You have to be authentic to yourself," he said. "When players feel that authenticity and honesty, that's the main thing they want to hear and see." We're not even in the regular season yet, and it seems as if first-year Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka is establishing his own authenticity. At the beginning of camp, Udoka stressed that he didn't want to see his team excessively complaining to officials. It's one thing to say that -- most coaches do -- but it's another to actually enforce it. During the Celtics' 122-100 loss to the Miami Heat in Friday's preseason finale, Udoka stayed true to his word. Boston forward Grant Williams committed an offensive foul on an illegal screen early in the third quarter and, while he argued with the official, Heat big...

    Florida’s Dan Mullen would like to see the SEC do away with permanent crossover opponents so the Gators could face Alabama and others more often. For the first time since 2011, the Florida Gators will host the Alabama Crimson Tide in Gainesville for a game at The Swamp. Head coach Dan Mullen doesn’t want to wait another decade for that matchup to land on the schedule. “I’d love for us to maybe do away with the permanent crossover team, so you get these type of games more often,” Mullen said, per Jarod Hamilton of The Tuscaloosa News. “I think for the players, for the fanbases, I really think it’s exciting to see some more of maybe mixing up the teams from the West and playing two different teams each year instead of a permanent crossover.

    A retired Marine in New Bern, North Carolina, is planning to use her recent lottery winnings to help people living in the area. Christi Davis said she wants to share some of her $500,000 prize money with her neighbors, the News & Observer reported Monday. “It’s been a hard year for everyone,” she said. “We want to pay it forward to some people and some organizations around town.” Many North Carolinians have experienced financial strain since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, so Davis was overwhelmed when she won the recent Powerball game. “Her good luck started last Saturday night about 8 p.m. when she realized she did not have a ticket for that night’s Powerball drawing. She took out her smartphone and used her NC Lottery Official Mobile App to get a $3 Power Play ticket,” the NC Education Lottery said Saturday. Davis’s Quick Pick ticket matched four white balls and the Powerball and won her $50,000. However, because she also bought a Power Play ticket, the prize increased to $500,000 when the ten times multiplier was drawn. “I...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — There’s a growing call to let students get back to playing sports in California. Some athletes brought their demands to the governor Thursday. Student-athletes stood on the steps of the State Capitol making passionate pleas, some breaking down saying the inability to play isn’t just robbing them of valuable scholarships, but wrecking their mental health. “I wanted to play this sport professionally. I wanted to travel and play nationally. This is about a scholarship that I got taken from me. This is about students and student-athletes not getting to do what they love. This is about our government officials not doing the right thing,” Zelbee Radar said.

    (CBS) – It was supposed to be business as usual for Head Coach Matt McCall and the UMass men’s basketball team, who arrived at their hotel in Washington, D.C. around 8:45 p.m. on Tuesday. They had a game scheduled against George Washington the next night at 6 p.m. However, right away, this trip was different. “I don’t think anyone expected what was going to transpire. It felt like it was safe to go and play the game,” McCall said. “Upon arriving at the hotel, right then and there, you knew that this just didn’t feel right.” McCall says they were met by a rowdy crowd outside of their hotel, located about two miles from the Capitol building. “Our bus pulls up and we get off the bus and they are starting to chant and yell and scream. So then as a coach, you just click into safety mode for our players. Wanted them to just grab their stuff and get in the hotel as fast as they could,” said McCall.

    Army football coach Jeff Monken explained why his team deserved a bowl game and torched teams who decided to opt out of bowl season leaving his nine-win football team without any chance of playing again this month or next month. Army could have played in the Independence Bowl, but organizers said in a statement that the "opting-out of possible teams created a lack of teams available to play in bowl games and the 2020 Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl." CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Army would have played a Pac-12 team in that game but a number of Pac-12 schools opted out of the bowl season over COVID-19 concerns.

    VIDEO1:4401:44'We want to be somewhat optimistic,' all-star investor Rich Bernstein saysTrading Nation Institutional Investor Hall of Famer Richard Bernstein predicts more momentum in stocks closely tied to the economy. He expects more enthusiasm surrounding the state of the recovery will drive more investors away from richly valued mega cap growth names, which include big tech high flyers.  "If you're buying them today at these types of valuations, you're effectively making a bet that the U.S. economy, that U.S. corporate profits, will stink going forward — that these are going to be the only companies that can possibly grow," the Richard Bernstein Advisors CEO and CIO told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Wednesday. Bernstein, who has spent decades on Wall Street, sees upside potential in energy, materials, transports and industrials. "History shows very clearly that if you believe that things are going to get better, then you want to have cyclical bent in your portfolio," he said. Even though Bernstein contends the economy improving, he's not jumping into the deep end just yet. "We should not be overly enthusiastic, and say the...
