From pictures and video, it looks like the car managed to hit (and break open) a gate in the fence.

SportsFilter: The Saturday Huddle

Isn't Dickey's knuckleball noticeably faster than Wakefield's?

Royals Acquire Shields, Deal Myers to Rays

I would rather my team win the world series and have to wait 25 years or more for the next playoff appearance, than to never win it all.

Infield Fly Call Helps Cards Oust Braves

The call was terrible. Sure, it was a routine play, but that doesn't mean the Cards don't have to make the play.

You don't commit three errors and expect to win too many playoff games.

The Cards had three errors in game six of the World Series last year.

Seattle Wins on What-the-Hell Mary

It's probably enjoyable until your team is the one that loses because of it.

Should athletic scholarships come with a 4-year guarantee?

Four year guaranteed scholarships (that even players who go pro can take advantage of after their career is over) would be the easiest first step towards an equitable system of "paying" players.

Is Robert Griffin III Overrated?

I wonder if this is being spread by the Redskins to drive down his cost, another QBs agent to prop up their guy, a team hoping Griffin will drop, or who...

NBA Store Puts Dwight Howard Nets Jersey On Sale

One thing nice about his change of heart is that maybe the Leborn decision has shown some players that money is not everything when you're already rich,

Lebron actually took less money to play for Miami.

NBA Store Puts Dwight Howard Nets Jersey On Sale

Does the NBA allow compensation picks yet? If not, doing so would solve a bit of this problem.

Colts Will Release Peyton Manning Today

Vikings!

Do you think Manning would want to play behind that offensive line?

All-Star Shake-up.

I'm a fan of a small market team, but think the owners made this mess. With the latest CBA, a player's current team can offer them more than anyone else when they become a free agent.

On paper this is good for small market teams, but if the player wants to leave, it's in the player's best interest to do what Paul is trying to do, get traded to the team you'd rather have offer you the max contract.

Unless if the NBA just plans on vetoing every trade, this is going to be a huge issue.

Pujols Going to Angels for 10 Years, $250 Million

I think the era of sure-fire future Hall of Famers playing with one team for their entire careers is largely over.

Ryan Braun and Troy Tulowitzki are both signed with their teams through 2020.
