Cincinnati Reds’ Dick Williams steps down as president of baseball operations

MLB JERSEYS
Dick Williams has resigned as the Cincinnati Reds' president of baseball operations after nearly 15 years with the team. Williams cited spending time with his family as one of the primary reasons for his resignation. The Reds said Nick Krall will remain in his current role as the team's vice president and general manager. "I don't expect everyone to understand my choice, but my situation is unique," Williams said, according to MLB.com. "I have a family business -- other than the Reds -- that also means a lot to me. I have four young kids that I need to spend more time with. I have had an exhilarating 15 years, and we have given our teams some great opportunities to win it all."

Atlanta Braves say Ronald Acuna Jr. plunking ‘woke us up’ as bad blood with Miami Marlins resurfaces

MLB JERSEYS
If the Miami Marlins are the Cinderellas of this baseball postseason, they maybe should have considered how the fairy tale would have turned out had the heroine taken off her glass slippers and hurled them at her stepsisters. Braves catcher Travis d'Arnaud and starting pitcher Max Fried might not have been reading fairy tales on Tuesday, but they both credited yet another incident in which a Marlins pitcher plunked star Ronald Acuna Jr. with helping the National League East champions overcome a slow start, as Atlanta came from behind to beat Miami 9-5 in Game 1 of their NL Division Series. "I think it woke us up," d'Arnaud said. "We obviously know what happened earlier in the year and even years prior with Ronnie. That definitely woke us up, and…

NBA Finals: How the Heat can still shake the Lakers

NBA Finals: How the Heat can still shake the Lakers

NBA JERSEYS
Almost every competitive playoff series reaches a point of strategic equilibrium. All the big adjustments have been made. All that is left is to rearrange the fringes: making tiny rotation tweaks; layering counter atop counter to sets the opponent has smothered in their basic forms; varying the location of those sets. It is a search for any edge that might last two possessions. Barring the return of Goran Dragic, it felt like the NBA Finals reached that equilibrium in Game 4. Both defenses optimized. Bam Adebayo started the game on Anthony Davis, leaving Jae Crowder jostling with Dwight Howard. Howard couldn't exploit that size mismatch and had trouble chasing Miami shooters pinging off Adebayo picks. Frank Vogel started Markieff Morris in Howard's place in the second half. Davis defended Jimmy…

NBA playoffs: Now the Celtics look like themselves

NBA JERSEYS
NBA playoff basketball is an exercise in advanced problem-solving, and the Boston Celtics came into Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals with some serious problems. They blew double-digit second-half leads to the Miami Heat in consecutive losses, encountered far more trouble with the Heat's zone defense than any top-five offense should and let Miami wreak havoc in the paint. If the first two games of the series were radical departures, then Game 3 was a bold correction for the Celtics, who overwhelmed the Heat 117-106 to narrow Miami's series lead to 2-1. With an offense that has made movement, creativity and unselfishness its defining qualities, there is no good reason for the Celtics to stagnate against a 2-3 zone defense, even one as alert as Miami's. The Celtics feature…
