  1. Judge hits 45th HR; young girl hit by foul; Yanks top Twins

    NEW YORK -- Aaron Judge hit his AL-leading 45th home run and topped 100 RBIs;? Didi Gregorius surpassed Derek Jeter for the most home runs by a Yankees shortstop; and New York beat the Minnesota Twins 11-3 Wednesday for a three-game sweep. The game was briefly halted in the fifth inning when a foul ball down the third-base line off the bat of Todd Frazier struck a young girl, who was carried out of the stands, given first aid and taken to a hospital. The protective netting at Yankee Stadium ends at the home-plate side of each dugout, and the team said in July it is "seriously exploring" extending the netting for 2018. Frazier knelt down and covered his head, and many other Yankees and Twins watched in stunned silence as the fan was helped. The Yankees said they weren't allowed to provide more information on her condition. The Yankees, who have won 10 of 12, began the day three games behind AL East-leading Boston. They...
  2. Source: Roger Goodell contract extension 'getting done'

    The issues NFL ownership have had regarding commissioner Roger Goodell's extension have been resolved and the deal is "getting papered right now," a source familiar with the negotiations told ESPN. It could take days or maybe weeks to finalize, but the contract is "getting done," according to the source. The source confirmed that? Dallas Cowboys?owner Jerry Jones had raised issues about the deal and wanted to open up the search during the process. ESPN previously reported that Jones had argued persistently for months to the committee that other owners believe Goodell makes "way too much money" and demand a pay-cut and a radical change in the formula that compensates the commissioner, as well as other employees of the league office.? "That's what he tried to do," the source said, "but he got shot down." A conference call on Wednesday of the compensation committee helped seal the deal. The committee consists of six owners: chairman Arthur Blank ( ...
  3. Autograph collector Pat Neshek to pursue Zack Greinke at All-Star Game

    Pat Neshek, the Philadelphia Phillies' representative for the 2017 All-Star Game, is a noted autograph hound who has already set his sights on his target for the Midsummer Classic. " Zack Greinke," Neshek told reporters after being named to the National League All-Star team Sunday. "He's tough. Hopefully we can talk." Neshek is now a two-time All-Star, and he picked up a slew of signatures during his first appearance in 2014. He noted that Greinke's autograph can be tough to get, but the 36-year-old already has a plan for next week's festivities in Miami. "I'll have my kid run over and get him," Neshek said. "It's going to be cool. My kid is a lot older now. He wasn't even 1 back then [in 2014]. He's 3? now. He'll be able to watch guys hit home runs, and it will be really neat." Neshek joined the Phillies from the Houston Astros at the end of last season. Calling himself a "salary dump," Neshek said he has...
  4. David Johnson says he doesn't have timeline to return from surgery

    TEMPE, Ariz. -- David Johnson has more important things to worry about as he rehabs from wrist surgery than all the fantasy football teams whose seasons he ruined this year by getting hurt. "No, no, that's the last thing," the Cardinals' star running back said Wednesday in his first public comments since suffering a dislocated wrist in a Week 1 loss to the Detroit Lions. "Fantasy is the last thing on my mind right now." Johnson said that he doesn't have a timeline to return from wrist surgery. "Really just see how it goes," Johnson said as he faced a gaggle of cameras and reporters in front of his locker. "Just rehab obviously after the cast and everything. We'll see what happens." Johnson didn't know how long he will have a cast on his left wrist, which was injured while he made a 24-yard catch in the third quarter on Sept. 10. He was put on injured reserve on Sept. 12 so the earliest he can play in a game is Week 10 against Seattle on a...
  5. Crazy talk: Seahawks' Richard Sherman can't believe Colin Kaepernick remains unsigned

    Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has again gone to bat for Colin Kaepernick, saying in a video for the Players' Tribune that it's "crazy talk" that the former starter remains unsigned after some "terrible" quarterback play throughout the NFL in Week 1. Sherman's comments came with the Seahawks preparing to host Kaepernick's former team, the San Francisco 49ers, in Week 2. "Naturally we're playing San Fran, they're going to ask about Kaepernick, does he deserve a job? Of course he deserves a job," Sherman said. "You saw the quarterback play throughout the league and it was terrible." Sherman referenced the Indianapolis Colts' quarterback situation in particular. With Andrew Luck sidelined because of a shoulder injury, Indianapolis started Scott Tolzien in its season opener against the Los Angeles Rams. Tolzien struggled and was benched in favor of Jacoby Brissett in...
