2015 SBN Writers Mock: Battle Red Blog is On The Clock

Decisions, decisions, decisions. In a year where Houston's first round pick could go in virtually any direction, it has been nearly impossible to come up with a consensus opinion among fans on what Rick Smith and Bill O'Brien should do. That lack of consensus was even reflected among the BRB staff, who have yet to agree on...well...anything. The BRB Masthead is now on the clock after David Fucillo and the Niners Nation staff selected UT defensive tackle Malcolm Brown 15th overall in the SB Nation Writers Mock Draft. Here is how the board has shaken out so far over the last several...

Detroit Tigers' Justin Verlander leaves game in third inning due to apparent injury

Verlander took the throw from first baseman Alex Avila on a groundout to first and ran across the bag before returning to the mound. A few minutes later, he was removed from the game. DUNEDIN, Fla. -- The rain didn't cut Justin Verlander's start short. An injury did. Verlander left the game Friday afternoon between the Detroit Tigers and the Toronto Blue Jays with two outs in the third inning after apparently suffering an injury while covering first base. Ryan Goins grounded out to first base for the second out of the inning. Verlander took the throw from first...

Matt Harvey continues dominance on birthday

JUPITER, Fla. -- Matt Harvey celebrated his 26th birthday with another dominant performance. Harvey allowed a first-inning run on Peter Bourjos' leadoff double and Matt Holliday's sacrifice fly to lose a 9⅔-inning scoreless streak. The New York Mets ace then blanked the St. Louis Cardinals for the remainder of his outing. Harvey limited St. Louis to one run on three hits, striking out five in 4⅓ innings in his second-to-last tuneup for the regular season.

Chris Sale moves closer to roster return

MESA, Ariz. -- The exclamation point on Chris Sale's 75-pitch simulated game Friday was a behind-the-back catch of a comebacker that seemed to lift the pitcher's spirits more than anything else he did on a significant rehab day. "That was the sickest thing I've ever done," the Chicago White Sox pitcher said when walking off the field following his outing. The left-hander is in the midst of his recovery from a fractured bone in his right foot, an injury that happened four weeks ago at his Arizona residence.

The most important Utah Jazz at Denver Nuggets poll you'll see today

All you need to do is make a single click, and be heard! I'm not a huge fan of the Denver Nuggets. Part of that is very understandable, I am a Utah Jazz fan. These two teams are geographical rivals, and while Denver hasn't had a streak of going to the West Finals five times in seven years like Utah had in the 90s, they haven't been absolute tire fires either. Well, unless we look at their front office situation right now. (Amar puts his hand up for a high five . . . realizes that this is the internet, and he's going to be left hanging.) Part of why I dislike the Nuggets is due to meeting...
