Last in the N.F.L. Draft, but Getting More Relevant All the Time

But there is one constant through the years: The last pick rarely makes a dent in his team’s record, with most Mr. Irrelevants spending the bulk of their careers in obscurity on the bench or ending up in the C.F.L. Some have had serviceable or noteworthy careers, but most remain, well, irrelevant to the team’s performance. On Saturday, barring a trade, the Denver Broncos, with the last pick, No. 253, will generate the next Mr.... Read more

Wizards and Celtics Both Clinch Series and Will Meet in the Next Round

Paul Millsap led the Hawks with 31 points, and Schroder had 26. After losing three close games in Washington, the Hawks seemed to run out of steam in the return to Philips Arena, ending a disappointing season. CELTICS 105, BULLS 83 Avery Bradley scored 23 points, and the hot-shooting Boston Celtics pounded host Chicago to win their first-round series, 4-2.

Giants Select a Defensive Lineman and a Quarterback

28-04-2017

According to Reese, the Giants believe Webb, who threw for 4,295 yards last season and was an honorable-mention All-Pacific-12 player, has the strongest arm in the draft. “Obviously, we’d like for him to have a couple of years to be the caddy and learn the pro game,” Reese said. “He has all the tools to play quarterback.” Reese added regarding the Giants’ quarterback situation: “We hope Eli continues to play at a high level and...

This is the everyday juggling act the Mets now face without their most talented hitter (Cespedes) and pitcher (Syndergaard) not ready to play. And then there all the other players on the disabled list — David Wright, Lucas Duda, Wilmer Flores, Brandon Nimmo, Seth Lugo and Steven Matz. “It’s part of the job,” Collins said, adding, “I understand you have injuries, but to have so many early, it’s been a little frustrating.” Cespedes hurt his...

On Baseball: In Early Going, the Yankees Steal the Mets’ Thunder

It was hard to see all this coming. In trying to defend their 2015 pennant last season, the Mets admirably claimed the top National League wild-card spot despite a merciless string of injuries.

Theo Epstein, Conquering Hero, Returns With Chicago Cubs to Fenway Park

Now, just as the Red Sox had to do, the Cubs are learning to cope with an altogether foreign problem: success. “It’s like we were always the guy at the dance who could never get a date with the pretty girl,” said Jonathan Gates, 54, of Boston. “Now, we are the dance.” The Cubs and Red Sox share more than histories. They play in the two oldest parks in baseball, Fenway and Wrigley Field, jewels... Read more

On Pro Football: Misgivings Diminish the Mighty N.F.L.’s Swagger

The owners got another reminder of that possibility on Wednesday, when ESPN, the 800-pound gorilla of sports television, laid off about 100 on-air sportscasters and reporters, including a handful of veteran writers for its digital site who covered the N.F.L. Before then came a wave of relocations that pushed the league into new markets — but also alienated fans in three cities that lost, or are losing, teams: San Diego, St. Louis and Oakland, Calif....

Sporting: (It’s Great to) Suck at Something

28-04-2017

When people hear that I surf, I get a knowing nod of awesomeness from the terra firma-bound. I know what they’re picturing: me on a thruster, carving up and down a wave face until I casually kick out the back to paddle out to the line up for another. The truth is that most surfers don’t come close to what we see in highlight videos. But pretty’s not the point. The point is the patience... Read more
