regular season:

    Before taking the mound at Oracle Park for the final regular season start with the San Francisco Giants, Jeff Samardzija sat on the dugout bench and thought about the memories he made during a five-year tenure with the club. “It’s like you’re always going to be there, always going to have that opportunity,” Samardzija said. “But we all know time goes by real fast. Looking at the stadium, it’s tough. I’ve had a lot of fun here. I very much enjoyed my time here. I was taking it all in.” Samardzija didn’t have much time to reflect after a 6-5 walk-off loss on Friday. The Giants designated him for assignment and placed him on unconditional release waivers with...
    Gary Sanchez says he’s not upset about potentially being benched in some games during the postseason, which both general manager Brian Cashman and manager Aaron Boone in recent days have said is a possibility. “I don’t focus on just who is behind the plate,’’ Sanchez said through an interpreter after the Yankees lost to the Marlins, 4-3, in 10 innings on Friday in The Bronx. “We’re a team and it’s important for people to understand the bottom line is winning. I’m a soldier on this team and if my name is in the lineup, I’m gonna be ready. If I’m not starting, I’m gonna be ready for when my team needs to be. Decisions are made. My responsibility is to...
    SCIOTO COUNTY — There’s just something fun about the word ‘penultimate’. Whether it’s the second-to-last episode of your favorite HBO show, or the second-to-last week of the high school football regular season, if the word ‘penultimate’ is used, it’s likely you’re nearing the end of your desired destination. For Scioto County’s nine football teams, they’ll be attempting to sure-up their position in the everybody-gets-a-spot 2020 playoffs. Valley at Wheelersburg Valley, while not having done so since their 2013 meeting, know what it’s like to upend the Wheelersburg Pirates. Its fellow league compatriot Waverly managed to hand the Pirates their first SOC II loss a week ago — since the Indians managed the same feat in back-to-back seasons in 2012...
    The NFL’s current overtime rules have had a rough stretch over the last few years. Yet despite inevitable criticism of the format in pro football every time a team loses in part because it did not get a chance to possess the ball in overtime, the rules established a decade ago remain in place in 2020. The NFL’s overtime rules do not allow for a sudden-death situation until both teams have possessed the ball and the game remains tied. However, if the team that gets the ball first scores a touchdown, the game ends. Many argue the existence of that rule gives too much value to something as random as a coin toss. Last year’s Saints became victims of the NFL’s overtime...
    Major League Baseball’s new seven-year deal with Turner Sports is for nearly $3.5 billion at $535 million per season, according to sources. When the extension kicks in during the 2022 season, the league and the network are going to try to make their setup more like the one Turner Sports rode to prominence with the NBA, as it will feature a prime-time weeknight game and a new studio show. Over Zoom, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred and Warner Media News & Sports chairman Jeff Zucker discussed the new deal with The Post. Besides continuing its extensive postseason package that includes an annual league championship series, TBS will create a Tuesday game of the week that will be preceded by its reconfigured...
    BUFFALO — Was this a parting gift or more of a first night of Hanukkah sort of thing? An exorcism or an appetizer? Either way, the Rays scouts monitoring Wednesday night’s action at Sahlen Field had to think, “This is the way the Yankees looked when they played us!” Yes, the Rays’ first American League East title since 2010 became official downstate, shortly after 10 o’clock, when Tampa Bay disposed of the Mets, 8-5 at Citi Field. Just in case the Mets had helped out their intracity pals, however, the Yankees executed the old belt-and-suspenders fail-safe on Tampa Bay’s behalf by playing one of their worst games of the season, an embarrassing, 14-1 defeat to the Blue Jays that marked...
    PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Chicago Cubs are heading to the playoffs for the fifth time in six years. If their offense doesn’t pick up soon, it might be a short stay. Pittsburgh’s Adam Frazier and Ke’Bryan Hayes led off the bottom of the first inning with back-to-back homers off Kyle Hendricks as the last-place Pirates slipped by the postseason-bound Cubs 2-1 on Wednesday night. “I was just trying to get something to hit,” Frazier said after his ninth career leadoff homer, third-most in franchise history. “He’s a good pitcher. Two strikes, just fighting. Got inside of a ball and got it out of there.” Chicago clinched a spot on Tuesday night and have a healthy 3 1/2-game lead over St....
    ATLANTA (AP) — Dansby Swanson hit a three-run homer and the Atlanta Braves cruised to their third straight win over the Miami Marlins, 9-4 Wednesday night in a game overshadowed by Max Fried’s early departure with an ankle injury. The Braves ace was making his final regular-season start, hoping to boost his NL Cy Young Award credentials ahead of starting Game 1 in the NL playoffs next week. But Fried lasted only one inning, tweaking an ankle while fielding a bunt down the third-base line by Starling Marte. While the left-hander didn’t appear to be hurt, he wasn’t the same pitcher after the play. Having gone the entire season without allowing a homer, covering 55 2/3 innings, Fried suddenly gave...
    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Adam Frazier and Ke’Bryan Hayes led off the bottom of the first inning with back-to-back homers off Kyle Hendricks, giving the Pittsburgh Pirates all the offense they’d need to slip by the playoff-bound Chicago Cubs 2-1 on Wednesday night. The Cubs clinched their fifth postseason spot in six years on Tuesday night and maintain a fairly healthy lead in the NL Central with four days left in the regular season. Still, the offense remains a bit of an issue for the Cubs. They’ve scored nine runs total while dropping four of their last five games. Frazier turned on the fourth pitch he saw from Hendricks (6-5) and sent it to the railing atop the seats in right...

    SAN FRANCISCO — After participating in the final day of workouts at the Sacramento alternate site on Tuesday, outfielder Steven Duggar learned his season will continue. Duggar is rejoining the Giants during the final week of the regular season after the club placed rookie Luis Alexander Basabe on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain. Basabe left Tuesday’s game against the Colorado Rockies with the injury that occurred as he was running up the first base line after hitting a ground ball. Basabe had been starting in place of injured outfielder Mike Yastrzemski and Duggar will immediately earn a start as he’ll bat ninth and play right field in Wednesday’s game. Giants manager Gabe Kapler...

    New York Mets’ Brodie Van Wagenen is not focused on his future role amidst ownership change By: Andres Chavez September 19, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditHedge fund billionaire Steve Cohen has an agreement in place to buy the New York Mets‘ franchise from the Wilpons. And while the deal is pending the approval of the other 29 ownership groups in MLB, there shouldn’t be too many roadblocks for Cohen to take over in the near future. A new era is set to begin for the New York Mets, and it is unclear if general manager Brodie Van Wagenen is part of that future.

    This is starting to become a good week for Justin Allgaier. Fresh from a weekend sweep at the Richmond Raceway, fortune is smiling down on the driver. To be precise, the NASCAR qualifying formula has placed him on pole position for the Bristol NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Friday night. The 34-year old has been in a good run of form, having taken victory at three of the last six Xfinity races. His latest win at Richmond places him in a good position for the playoff, which will begin after Friday’s race at Bristol. From that point onwards, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway plays host to the NASCAR Xfinity playoffs. Of course, Allgaier will not have everything easy, since Ross C...
    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — National tournaments will have fewer teams and fewer sites for preliminary rounds under the NCAA Division I Council’s proposal for fall sports that were pushed to the spring because of the coronavirus pandemic. The council approved recommendations from the spring sports’ competition committees on Wednesday and will forward them to the Division I Board of Governors for approval. For team sports, the field for national tournaments will be reduced to 75% of the normal number of teams. The Board of Governors has directed that the number of preliminary-round sites be reduced to support health and safety and operational management of the championships this spring.

    The Connecticut Sun came out firing on all cylinders in the first game of the WNBA playoffs, completely overpowering and eliminating the Chicago Sky. The Connecticut Sun came about as close as you can to a title last season, losing to the Washington Mystics 89-78 in Game 5 of last year’s best-of-five WNBA Finals. The plan was to take improve the roster and take that next and final step and a February trade for DeWanna Bonner and Briann January seemed like the move that might do it. And then the coronavirus pandemic hit, warping the 2020 season and removing centerpiece Jonquel Jones, who finished third in voting for MVP and Defensive Player of the Year last season but who opted out...
    Giancarlo Stanton is back. The next question is, can he stay healthy the rest of the season? Stanton was activated before Tuesday’s series opener against the Blue Jays in The Bronx — along with Gio Urshela and Jonathan Loaisiga. Stanton is the DH and hitting cleanup while Urshela is starting at third base. Stanton had been out since Aug. 8 with a left hamstring strain. He’s played in 14 games this season, but when he was on the field, Stanton was productive, with a 1.038 OPS in 54 plate appearances. The Yankees tried to keep the 30-year-old upright by limiting him to DH duties, but his injury woes have continued after being limited to 18 regular season games a...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It’s finally here. The Ravens begin their 2020 Regular Season against the Cleveland Browns at 1 p.m. from M&T Bank Stadium. The Ravens have racked up four consecutive wins on kickoff weekend, and John Harbaugh has one of the best records on kickoff weekend among active head coaches in the league. He is 9-3, second to Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer. Although the Browns won just six games and finished third in the AFC North last year, Harbaugh said a win isn’t going to come easy. “It’s exciting, we’re looking forward to it,” Harbaugh said. “It’s a rivalry game. We’ve had many knock out, drag-out football brawls with this team and this organization, so we know what’s...
    The Yankees acquired James Paxton to bolster the top of their starting rotation, but injury issues may provide him an unceremonious exit from the Bronx. James Paxton arrived in New York as a pitcher with the talent to help the Yankees succeed in the postseason. His inability to stay healthy this regular season may end New York’s interest in re-signing him in free agency this offseason. When Paxton originally went on the Injured List with a strained forearm flexor the expectation was that he’d return to the active roster in time to be ready to contribute in the playoffs. A setback in his rehabilitation efforts now has his chances of returning this season in serious doubt. Manager Aaron Boone now...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — We’re just four days to the kickoff of a Ravens season like none before; no fans in the stands, and looming concerns about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Preparations for the opener continue in Owings Mills with a central factor that hasn’t changed; quarterback Lamar Jackson is the key to the Ravens’ success. For the first time in Ravens history, they’ll take the field to start a season with the NFL’s reigning most valuable player. Jackson begins his third season in the NFL as a record-breaking quarterback. He’s young, yet unconcerned about the quick build-up of expectations. Jackson’s teammates said they admire his ability to tune out the noise. “He’s the man,” running back Mark Ingram...
    MILWAUKEE (AP) — Posting the NBA’s best record once again couldn’t help the Milwaukee Bucks win a conference title, let alone a league championship. The top seed in the playoffs will spend the rest of the postseason wondering why it couldn’t ever regain its pre-hiatus form in the Disney bubble. Milwaukee was 53-12 when the coronavirus pandemic caused play to shut down for 4 ½ months. The Bucks went 8-10 after the season resumed in Florida, including a 4-1 loss in a best-of-7 Eastern Conference semifinal series with the Miami Heat. They never seemed to adapt to playing without fans as well as other teams did. “At the end of the day, every team went through that,” said Giannis...

    Daily testing for COVID-19, except on game days, has been extended into the regular season by the NFL and the players’ union. All players and other team personnel categorized in Tiers 1 and 2 will continue to be tested each day, a process that has worked relatively well for the league as it approaches the first game on Thursday night in Kansas City. With no testing on game days, the pregame coronavirus exams will be conducted on the day before the game and must be completed before a club travels. NFL Players Association President JC Tretter of the Cleveland Browns recently called for a continuation of daily testing. “In the spirit of adaptability, expect the NFLPA to push...
    It feels like a a lifetime, but it was just more than a month ago that Seattle destroyed Minnesota to the tune of a 90-66 final to drop the Lynx to 1-1 on the season. And no one batted an eye. The reality was the Storm were perceived title favorites and the Lynx were considered to be a fringe playoff team. One of those has held true: Seattle has been the best team in the league to date. But Minnesota, with just four games to play in the regular season, clinched a playoff spot long ago and enter Sunday’s titanic tilt with the Storm as one of the WNBA’s top four teams. “It’s been so long; we’re a completely different...

Colorado rallied back from a 3-1 series deficit against Dallas before losing 5-4 in overtime. A quick message from MacKinnon to the front office: Don’t change much. “If we have the exact same team next year, I feel like we can win it next year,” said MacKinnon, whose team hasn’t been to the Western Conference finals since 2002. “Love the group of guys we have.” A glut of...
    Getty Los Angeles Lakers HC Frank Vogel. When the Los Angeles Lakers decided to hire Frank Vogel as head coach, it wasn’t met with the best reviews. He failed at his last job and had been fired by two separate teams. He’s also a defensive-minded head coach in a league that is favoring offense more and more. Despite those facts, he’s done a very good job with this Lakers team. They finished the season with the best record in the Western Conference and have looked impressive in the playoffs thus far. However, the coach isn’t without his shortcomings. According to Lakers veteran Danny Green, there’s one aspect of Vogel’s coaching style that isn’t ideal. “I like Frank, but Frank...
    In a year in which few things are normal, there will be some familiar things about NFL broadcasts this season. Announcers will be in the stadiums, pregame shows will have their usual fill of banter and debate and the regular season will start on time. But will it translate to an increase in ratings for a third straight year? Opinions are mixed, but Neal Pilson, the former president of CBS Sports who now runs his own sports television consulting company, thinks there will be growth because of many factors. “More people are home, all those that go to the game will be home watching which will add up in some markets plus there might not be as much group...

    TORONTO (AP) — Rudy Camacho scored on a header, lifting the Montreal Impact to a 1-0 victory over Toronto FC on Tuesday night. The loss ended Toronto FC’s club-record unbeaten streak in MLS regular-season play at 18 games. That’s one shy of the league mark. League-leading Toronto had a chance to score in first-half stoppage time, but Alejandro Pozuelo’s attempt at a trick play from the penalty spot — trying to set up teammate Pablo Piatti with a short pass rather than go for goal himself — backfired. Impact midfielder Emanuel Maciel was sent off in second-half stoppage time for a tackle that scythed Michael Bradley to the ground, only to have the call downgraded to a yellow card on...
    Tua Tagovailoa doesn’t have to start for the Dolphins when the regular season kicks off, but he should see meaningful snaps starting on Week 1. Nothing should be more important to the Dolphins than developing Tua Tagovailoa this season. That’s why it’s imperative for Miami that their rookie quarterback gets regular playing time in every game. The Dolphins insist that Tagovailoa is fully recovered from the ugly hip injury that ended his collegiate career, but head coach Brian Flores insists that his injury is “part of the conversation” when it comes to playing Tagovailoa Week 1. That type of rhetoric drops a strong hint that Ryan Fitzpatrick will actually be the team’s starting quarterback when the regular season begins. That’s...
    If Alvin Kamara sits out regular season games, what will the New Orleans Saints do? New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara was not at practice on Monday, as his unexcused absence continued for a third day. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported his absence is believed to be related to his contract, as Kamara enters the final year of his rookie deal scheduled to make $2.133 million. There’s no denying Kamara’s value to the Saints’ offense, with exactly 81 receptions and over 1,300 yards from scrimmage in all three of his seasons. What he did last year, playing on a bad knee among other injuries, was pretty remarkable and has fostered optimism he’ll have his best season yet this year. To...
    The Falcons offense needs balance to operate at maximum efficiency. Team officials believe Todd Gurley’s capable of giving them a potent run game. Tom Brady isn’t the only big-name veteran to take his talents to the NFC South this offseason. The Falcons are hoping Todd Gurley can give their rushing attack a major boost in 2020. To do that, the former Rams star needs to prove that he can stay healthy for a full regular-season. Early reports from Atlanta are promising on that front. Head coach Dan Quinn claims to have “felt” Gurley’s speed during a recent scrimmage. That sort of burst gave the 26-year-old rusher the ability to break containment against the Falcons defense. The team’s coaching staff hopes...

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Bruins went to the bubble in Toronto. Did anything good come from it? After a Presidents’ Trophy-winning regular season many moons ago, the answer is without a doubt no. Nothing. To be fair, it’s entirely possible — likely, even — that had the season played out like normal in the spring, the final result of a 4-1 series loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning would have taken place anyway. The Lightning did win three of four games against Boston during that regular season, including a high-intensity, playoff-like showdown in what turned out to be Boston’s penultimate game of the season. In that sense, the Bruins — who failed to make up...

    According to a recently published list of recommended trade targets for the 2020 offseason, New Orleans Pelicans guard J.J.

During regular-season play, the Lakers ranked 21st out of 30 teams with a 34.9 percent clip from beyond the arc and were second-to-last in the playoffs, with that figure dropping to 33.1 percent.
