  1. Presenting the world's worst stage parent

    Who in their right mind would spend up to $500 for a pair of basketball shoes?

    That's the real question when it comes to stage parent and huckster LaVar Ball, whose Big Baller Brand is asking $500 for a pair of shoes that will bear his son Lonzo's name. A limited edition model goes for twice as much or better. It's easy to see that the elder Ball wants the 15 minutes of fame he never got as an athlete, but he's embarrassing his son at every turn.

    Take for example a ...

  2. In the end, he's another party boy gone wrong

    Not even Bruce Wayne parties well into the night.

    While the New York press dubbed Mets pitcher Matt Harvey, "The Dark Knight", as in baseball's answer to Batman, Harvey has gotten himself in hot water with the team on a number of occasions, most recently May 6 when he didn't show up at Citi Field and was subsequently scratched from his start the next day vs. Miami. First, he claimed it was a migraine headache, but then it got out in the wash, so to speak, that he'd partied ...

  3. The torch has been passed

    It's an even-numbered year, but the San Francisco Giants won't be in the World Series.

    The Giants' October magic ran out on them shortly after midnight (ET) as the NL Central champion Chicago Cubs punched their ticket to their 2nd straight NLCS, eliminating the Giants in 4 games. Joe Maddon's club now awaits the winner of Thursday's NLDS finale between Washington & Los Angeles, as the Dodgers forced a game 5 with a 6-5 win earlier Tuesday.

    The Cubs knew what they ...

  4. The law of diminishing returns

    In the space of 48 hours, the Yankees are finding themselves filling up their off-season shopping list.

    First, Mark Teixiera announces on Friday that he'll call it a career when the season ends. The other shoe dropped this morning with news that Alex Rodriguez is going to play his last game on Friday, 8/12, vs. Tampa Bay, then move into a special advisor/roving instructor gig until the end of 2017.

    In Rodriguez's case, maybe this should've been considered before the ...

  5. In New York, stupidity works both ways

    I just don't get it.

    With a week to go before the trade deadline, the Yankees traded away fireballing closer Aroldis Chapman to the NL Central leading Chicago Cubs, getting back reliever Adam Warren and three minor leaguers in return. Warren, based on what I'd read, didn't quite find a comfort zone in Chicago, perhaps unhappy about being forced to leave the Bronx after last season. Now, he comes home, and the Yanks have wasted money spent on a marketing campaign.

    What ...
