    Tony La Russa

    It was just three days ago that the New York Times penned a story on the old dugout phones, telling the tale about how earlier in the year, the phones malfunctioned with the St. Louis Cardinals. Last night, Cardinals bullpen coach Derek Lilliquist didn't tell Jason Motte to warm up on two occasions because he said he didn't hear LaRussa because of crowd noise.

  • Reaction: NFL Starts Venture Capital Firm Thursday, 20 Oct 2011 | 1:49 PM ET

    Earlier this week, Sports Business Journal broke the story that the NFL was starting a venture capital fund, with the owners willing to put in at least $32 million to invest in businesses. I knew I needed to comment on this, but, to be honest, I didn't think I was the most qualified. For that, I went to Dan Shanoff of Quickish, a media company focused on short-form, real-time news curation and discovery.

  • 7 NBA Teams That Can't Afford a Season-Long Lockout Thursday, 20 Oct 2011 | 11:43 AM ET
    The NBA lockout which started back on July 1st has already wiped out the entire preseason and nearly 100 regular season games. A key point of dispute for both sides continues to be focused on the breakdown of basketball-related income (BRI), which was previously guaranteed at 57% for the players.

  • The Texas Team Owners Nobody Knows Wednesday, 19 Oct 2011 | 10:51 AM ET

    Texas. It's the land where everything is bigger and sports owners stand out. Jerry Jones builds the biggest in-stadium TV at Cowboys Stadium and Mark Cuban isn't afraid to say anything, until a superstitious code of silence led to the Mavericks first ever championship last season. And yet, two billionaires own a Texas team that will play in it's second straight World Series and even Rangers fans would be hard pressed to come up with their names. And they both couldn't be happier about that.

  • Jimmy Johnson

    Jimmie Johnson has won five straight Sprint Cup titles and a win last week has him in third place with just six races to go. Dynasties are normally good for sports. The Bulls, the Yankees, Tiger Woods and the Williams sisters I believe have all been good for their respective sports. But Jimmie Johnson winning a sixth consecutive title is not.

  • NBA Lockout: 18 People Tell How It Will Affect Them Tuesday, 11 Oct 2011 | 2:28 PM ET
    NBA Lockout

    Last night, as it became apparent that the first two weeks of the NBA season would be canceled, I asked regular folks on Twitter if they could tell their own personal stories about what the continued lockout would mean to them. I was touched by what people said in 140 characters or less. It might not mean anything, but I hope the players and the owners print this out and read it for themselves.
