Changing college landscape front and center for Big Ten

ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) — Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany would just as soon leave the paychecks to the pros. The conference’s coaches and players have different takes. The amateur model of college athletics could be shaken to its core after once California’s Fair Pay to Play Act takes effect in a few years, requiring schools […]

Yelich watches helplessly as Brewers fall short again

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Christian Yelich watched helplessly from the dugout as Milwaukee’s season ended. The Brewers controlled the first 7 1/3 innings of Tuesday’s NL wild-card game in Washington before a stunning collapse. All-Star closer Josh Hader was wild, and Milwaukee got stung by a disputed hit-by-pitch, a broken-bat base hit and an error by […]

Tight-knit Timberwolves relishing fresh start

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The tension that the Minnesota Timberwolves lugged into last season has been long stamped out, replaced by talk of creating culture, establishing process and building relationships under a new regime.

Prosecutors appeal ruling banning Kraft prostitution video

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A judge made several errors when he threw out video evidence allegedly showing New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft twice paying for sex at a Florida massage parlor, prosecutors argued in a court document, keeping alive their case against one of the NFL’s most prominent personalities.

Blame it on the juice: Pitchers set for homer-filled October

Justin Verlander didn’t intend to alter his pitching strategy, not after 14 seasons as a major league ace. But then the home runs stopped making sense. A long drive by Yankees slugger Aaron Judge?

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Defying the NCAA, California opened the way Monday for college athletes to hire agents and make money from endorsement deals with sneaker companies, soft drink makers, car dealerships and other sponsors, just like the pros.

Giannis, Bucks look to be last team standing at season’s end

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Expectations for Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks have never been higher. After leading the Bucks to a league-best 60 wins in the regular season and losing to the NBA champion Raptors in the Eastern Conference finals earlier this year, Antetokounmpo is putting his league MVP trophy on the shelf and focusing […]

‘Mad Max’ carries playoff skid into Brew-Nats wild-card game

WASHINGTON (AP) — Based on what everyone says about Washington Nationals righty Max Scherzer, he seems like an obvious choice to start the NL wild-card game against Milwaukee. Scherzer is, in the words of Brewers manager Craig Counsell, “probably going to the Hall of Fame.” Brandon Woodruff, Counsell’s choice to start for visiting Milwaukee on […]

Brewers wind up with NL wild card, lose to Rockies in 13

DENVER (AP) — By the late innings, the Milwaukee Brewers just wanted the game to end. That took a while, though. Already relegated to an NL wild-card spot, the Brewers lost to the Colorado Rockies 4-3 Sunday when Jake Faria threw a wild pitch in the 13th inning that allowed the winning run to score. […]
