Ole Miss player during LSU game

Ole Miss catcher, Will Allen, hit a double in the bottom of the 11th inning against LSU while trailing the Tigers 3-2. The hit got the Ole Miss dugout a little too excited, as one of the dudes threw up something you might see in a porno movie.

Yankees’ Yangervis Solarte Starts Picture-Perfect 5-4-3 Triple Play vs Rays [Video]

Heading into the 2014 season, most Yankee fans were wondering who would fill the Alex Rodriguez-sized hole at third base. Yangervis Solarte quickly answered the call to the call.

Solarte started the first triple of the season on Thursday night, fielding a hard-hit groundball from the Rays’ Sean Rodriguez, stepping on third base and wheeling the ball to second, starting the 5-4-3 triple play .

Check out this crazy stat:

 The Yankees may have found a solution at third base. In addition to his hot glove, Solarte, 26, is hitting .333/.418/.458 with seven runs batted in. Its a small sample size, but so far so good for the young kid.


Jabari Parker Officially Announces He Will Enter 2014 NBA Draft

Jabari Parker is leaving Duke for the NBA, which is no surprise at all. Parker, the most complete freshman in the country – and perhaps the “best” rookie in the sport since Kevin Durant – will be a Top 3 pick, probably after the Kansas tandem of Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid. Depending on who wins the lottery, Parker could certainly go 1st overall.

Parker revealed his decision in a piece for Sports Illustrated with Jeff Benedict:

Ultimately, I boiled my decision down to two simple questions:

Which environment — college or the NBA — offers me the best opportunity to grow as a basketball player?

Which environment — college or the NBA — offers me the best opportunity to grow and develop off the court?

The answer to both questions is undeniably the NBA.

There is something else. My father, Sonny, played in the NBA. I know firsthand that the career span of a pro basketball player is finite. The lucky ones play until their mid-30s. With that perspective, I shrink my professional career with each year that I remain in college. It’s ironic, but true.

The story here, though, is Duke, which will lose Parker and wing Rodney Hood to the draft – the latter is expected to go in the lottery, possibly in the Top 10 – but the Blue Devils are still expected to open next season as the No. 1 team in the country. It’ll be fashionable to bash Duke following another NCAA Tournament letdown, and the fact that they love the 3-pointer in the postseason, but we’re talking about a team that returns three rotation players (Quinn Cook, Rasheed Sulaimon and Amile Jefferson) to go along with the best recruiting class in the country. Toss in Marshall Plumlee, who improved a bit as a sophomore and should be better by December, considering he’ll be going against Jahlil Okafor in practice, and you’re going to have a well-rounded team that should win the ACC and get back to the Final 4.
