Serena Dominates, Advances to 8th US Open Final

Serena Dominates, Advances to 8th US Open Final

Mike Stobe/Getty Images for the USTA(NEW YORK) — Top-seeded Serena Williams defeated 17th-seeded Ekaterina Makarova in straight-sets 6-1, 6-3 Friday to advance to her 8th US Open Final Friday.

Williams has yet to drop a set this tournament and has now won 20 straight matches at the US Open.

The 32-year-old Williams will now look to win her third-straight US Open, something no women has done since Chris Evert did it in the 1970s, when she takes on Caroline Wozniacki Sunday.

Williams is trying to win her sixth US Open championship and 18th grand slam title, which would tie Williams with Evert and Martina Navratilova for fourth most all-time.

Warriors Reward GM Bob Myers with 3-Year Extension

Warriors Reward GM Bob Myers with 3-Year Extension

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) — As the Golden State Warriors continue to ascend as one of the elite teams in the Western Conference, the team has rewarded general manager Bob Myers with a three-year extension.

His deal was set to expire at the end of next season, but now Myers will be under contract with the organization through the 2017-2018 season.

Myers joined the Warriors organization back in 2011 as an assistant GM, he was then promoted to general manager in 2012.

Since taking over the team, Myers has built one of the most entertaining teams in the NBA. They won 47 games his first season as the general manager, and then won 51 games this past season.

Since joining the Warriors, Myers has brought in players like Andre Iguodala, Andrew Bogut, Harrison Barnes, Klay Thompson, and Shaun Livingston. All of those players are seen as core players for the franchise.

Myers also oversaw the firing of head coach Mark Jackson and the hiring of Steve Kerr to replace him.

ESPN: Diamondbacks Fire General Manager Kevin Towers

ESPN: Diamondbacks Fire General Manager Kevin Towers

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — After about four years on the job, ESPN reports that the Arizona Diamondbacks have fired general manager Kevin Towers.

Entering Friday, the Diamondbacks sit at 59-81 and 19 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.

Towers first season with the team was a success as they won the NL West after going 94-68, but that was as good as it got for Towers in Arizona. The team went 81-81 the next two seasons, and this year they have a last-place squad.

Towers traded away players like Justin Upton, Adam Eaton, Gerardo Parra, Ian Kennedy, Trevor Bauer, and Martin Prado. Yet the team has seen very little return from trading away these players. As a result, the club’s performance on the field has suffered.

What is even more alarming is that many of those players have found success since being traded away that they never had while playing for the club.

It is unknown if manager Kirk Gibson will be brought back or not.

Suspended Browns’ Receiver Josh Gordon to Sell Cars During the Season

Suspended Browns’ Receiver Josh Gordon to Sell Cars During the Season

Matt Sullivan/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Now that he’s suspended for the entire 2014 season, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has found a new job…selling cars.

Gordon will serve as the goodwill ambassador for the Sarchione Auto Group in Ohio, according to ESPN. He will work a 40-hour week in all aspects of the Randolph, Ohio-based dealer group’s car business.

The 23-year-old Gordon is one of the most talented players in the NFL, and even led the league in receiving last season despite playing just 14 games.

“He’s going to put his time in,” Jeff Sarchione, who co-owns a dealership in Randolph, told cleveland.com. “He’ll be everything from a salesman to attaching himself at the hip with my brother and I just learning the automotive business from top to bottom.”

Gordon was suspended the entire season for once again violating the league’s drug policy.

“We’re just finding that out as well,” Browns head coach Mike Pettine said. “That’s something I don’t really want to get into because I want to discuss the guys that are here … Internally we want what’s best for him. We just hope for that to occur.”

Last season, Gordon caught 87 passes for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns.

Jadeveon Clowney Prepares for Robert Griffin III

Jadeveon Clowney Prepares for Robert Griffin III

Cliff Hawkins/Getty Images(HOUSTON) — Texans rookie linebacker Jadeveon Clowney is good to go on Sunday and is looking forward to playing in his first NFL regular season game against the Washington Redskins.

Clowney will have a tough task at hand in running down quarterback Robert Griffin III.

“One of the best running quarterbacks in the league I think,” Clowney said of RG3. “You gotta be ready to contain him in the pocket because he can get out there and cause havoc, he can run pretty fast.”

“I’m just treating it like another game,” the first-overall pick said Thursday. “Just go out there and take one play at a time and just do my assignment.”

Clowney said his entire family will be in attendance, but he isn’t worried about any added pressure during his regular season debut.

“I’m not really nervous, I’m just ready to get to it,” Clowney said.  “Something I’ve been waiting for my whole life.”

Clowney missed the final two preseason games, but had three tackles for a loss, a sack and a quarterback hit in the first two games against the Cardinals and Falcons.

Derek Carr, Raiders, Ready for Jets on Sunday

Derek Carr, Raiders, Ready for Jets on Sunday

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) — Oakland Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr will get his first start on Sunday against the Jets on the road.

Carr was named the starter earlier this week over veteran quarterback Matt Schaub and is ready for everything that Jets head coach Rex Ryan has to throw at him.

“He’s got a great blitz package. He’s got, obviously, a lot of different looks that he’ll show. Me being a rookie, he’s probably going to want to show them all. I go in and expect, as much as I can, I expect everything. Then if something doesn’t happen, then I’ll be surprised,” Carr said Tuesday.

“That’s how I have to prepare. I have to prepare for everything, even maybe for something he hasn’t shown but could show,” he continued. “Obviously I reach out to anybody who can help me. I called my brother because he’s played them seven times. I called him and said, ‘Hey, let’s talk Jets. You were there, you’ve seen them.’ So we talked. I picked his brain, took notes and that was it. Now I went about my business for the rest of the week, picked [Matt] Schaub’s brain, picked the coaches’ brain, so I expect a lot.”

The Raiders have a brand new roster full of veterans to go along with Carr. Still, Ryan isn’t concerned about it.

“We’re just going to show up and do what we do. Again, we played the Raiders last year, we’ve seen their tape, they’ve seen us and everything else. That part of it is, it’s not like, oh, all of a sudden you’re going to run the wishbone, which by the way, we’re going to run this game. That part of it, ‘oh, we’re holding them back,’ I don’t believe that, everybody, you just play, and that’s really what you do,” Ryan said on Wednesday.

The Raiders have lost 12 straight games on the East coast, but Ryan doesn’t think geographic location has anything to do with it.

“I think at one point it’s overblown, because I think when you look at last year the teams that had the most success were west coast teams coming to the east coast. Now, obviously with the Raiders having bad numbers, they haven’t had the success of it, but I think it’s football is football, regardless of where you play it,” Ryan said of their poor record.

Cubs’ Starlin Castro Likely to Miss the Rest of the Season

Cubs’ Starlin Castro Likely to Miss the Rest of the Season

Kent C. Horner/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — Earlier this week the Chicago Cubs lost first baseman Anthony Rizzo for an indefinite period of time, and now it has been revealed that shortstop Starlin Castro is likely to miss the rest of the season with a high ankle sprain.

Castro injured himself when he slid into home during the first inning of the team’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers. His cleat got caught in the dirt around home plate. An MRI revealed the sprain.

“Right now the prognosis is four weeks to come back,” general manager Jed Hoyer said Wednesday. “We’re not going to shut him down. His mentality is he can beat four weeks and come back.”

After a down season in 2013, the 24-year-old Castro has rebounded quite nicely in 2014. If his season is truly over, he’ll have played 134 games this season while batting .292 with 14 home runs and 65 RBIs.

“In my mind’s eye he’s had a very productive season,” manager Rick Renteria said. “He’s dealt with a lot of different things very positively. He’s worked extremely hard.”

Rookie Javier Baez will shift over from second base to shortstop.

Rockies Reward Pitcher Jorge De La Rosa with Contract Extension

Rockies Reward Pitcher Jorge De La Rosa with Contract Extension

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Colorado Rockies were not about to let starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa hit free agency as the two sides have agreed on contract extension.

De La Rosa’s new deal is for two years and will pay him $25 million.

The 33-year-old De La Rosa has been with the Rockies since 2008 and he has proven to be a solid, reliable starting pitcher during his time with the team.

Last season, De La Rosa had arguably the best season of his 11-year career as he went 16-6 with a 3.49 ERA. This season, he hasn’t had quite as much success as he’s 13-10 with a 4.26 ERA in 28 starts.

The Rockies are a pitching starved franchise. They rank near the top in most offensive categories in Major League Baseball, but dead last in Major League Baseball in team ERA.

ESPN: Kings Sending Guard Jason Terry to the Rockets

ESPN: Kings Sending Guard Jason Terry to the Rockets

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(HOUSTON) — He may not be the player he used to be, but the Houston Rockets are rolling the dice on veteran guard Jason Terry. ESPN reports that the Sacramento Kings will send Terry to Houston.

While the deal is not yet officially completed, the Rockets will also receive two second-round draft picks from the Kings while they will send guard/forward Alonzo Gee to Sacramento.

The 36-year-old Terry began last season with the Brooklyn Nets but wound up being traded to the Kings right before the trade deadline. Because he was recovering from a knee injury, Terry never suited up for the Kings during his brief tenure there.

In 35 games this past season, Terry averaged a career-low 4.5 points and 1.6 assists per game.

He will likely be a reserve/backup guard to Patrick Beverley in Houston.

Gee is a five-year NBA veteran who will already be playing for his fourth team. This past season, he averaged 4.0 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.
