Andy Murray may retire at Wimbledon

The 2019 Wimbledon could mark the end of an era.  Per The Times’ Stuart Fraser, Andy Murray may retire after this year’s Wimbledon as he continues to battle a hip injury. “Wimbledon is where I would like to stop playing but I am not certain I am able to do that,” Murray said on Thursday, per Fraser. “I’m not sure I can play through the pain for another four or five months. I can play with limitations. But having the limitations and the pain is not allowing me to enjoy competing or training.” Having dealt with the injury since 2008, he underwent hip surgery in January 2018. That procedure […]

Guard Patrick McCaw plans to sign with the Toronto Raptors, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, three days after he was waived by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Rockets beat Warriors in OT

We’ve all had that feeling before. Golden State can’t miss, their defense is working its special slappy magic. They’re charging ahead, and even their deep bench guys are rolling. It’s looks to be a long night. The Rockets came out flat, Golden State came out fired up, and firing. The Rockets missed bunnies and open looks, while Golden State shot 64% overall, and 47% from three for the first half. Add to that James Harden took a nasty shot to the chops from Kevon Looney’s elbow and shoulder and looked a bit confused, confounded, or something starting with “con” anyway. The full Warrior front-runner show […]

With an opening for a designated hitter and a need for more power in the lineup, the Minnesota Twins found quite a fit on the free agent market with a six-time All-Star in Nelson Cruz.
