Outfield defense becoming big factor in this World Series

Outfield defense doesn’t show up in the box score, but it matters in this World Series. A lot. Hunter Pence tracks down Lorenzo Cain’s slicing liner Friday in Game 3. (AP photo) The Royals have one of the best defensive outfields in baseball, especially with their lineup Friday for Game 3 and again Saturday for Game 4 — Alex Gordon in left, Jarrod Dyson in center and Lorenzo Cain in right. Cain made two excellent running catches Friday; he, Dyson and Gordon cover plenty of ground at spacious AT&T Park. The Giants also are showing off their legs and gloves in the outfield, mostly with...

W2W4: Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- In a promotional giveaway, all fans will receive a green New York Jets flag Sunday upon entering MetLife Stadium. Maybe it should be a white flag. No doubt, many are ready to give up on the season, if they haven't already.
