Preakness Pole Positions – Full Draw & Odds for 2021 Triple Crown Race

The 2021 Preakness Stakes are caught between a rock and a hard place heading into the post draw on Tuesday. Pimlico Racecourse, operator of the second Triple Crown jewel, must decide whether to allow Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit to race. This comes after Churchill Downs discovered Sunday that the horse tested positive for 21 picograms of betamethasone, 11 picograms higher than the legal limit for racing. If Pimlico refuses to allow Medina Spirit to run, it could have serious betting implications not just on the Preakness Stakes, but the Triple Crown as well. Kentucky Derby runner-up Mandaloun will be declared the winner at the Kentucky Derby if a second drug test validates the first, but will not race in the Preakness Stakes. That would mean no Triple Crown winner in 2021, ev...

The Barça throws the League again

Koeman's eleven squanders two goals ahead after the break and is unable to manage the score in favor with 2-3 The Barça team offers a regrettable defensive exercise and reveals itself without profession or leadership Neither obtained the real leadership against Granada in an ignominious defeat, nor did Barça earn it, even if it was fictitiously, for a few hours, in the visit to Levante. The flame of illusion for the League, for the doublet, fragile, went out with a slight blow, after a tie so blushing like last week's stumble, unless Atlético, who play against Real Sociedad today, and Real Madrid, tomorrow in Granada, want to accompany their illustrious friend on the path of mediocrity in the League of Errors (and mistakes). ...

Growing up in Schenectady, New York, in the 1990s, Frazier was the Knicks' color commentator.

Bradley Beal reacts to Kent Bazemore’s hamstring comment

NBA players have the best fightsBradley Beal took on Kent Bazemore Monday night in response to a comment Bazemore made that Beal thought was over the line. Beal and Bazemore's teammate Stephen Curry are locked in a close battle for the NBA scoring title. (After Monday's action, Curry leads with 31.9 points per game, while Beal is averaging 31.4). Curry had 49 points in 29 minutes on Saturday, while Beal had 50 the same night. Beal injured his hamstring in the performance and missed Monday's game against the Hawks.

"49 points in 29 minutes, that's unreal," Bazemore said. “Then we have guys hurting thei...

Welcome to morning target practice, where every day of the week you will receive an up-to-date and current column from one of the SI.comNBA Writers: Howard Beck on Mondays, Chris Mannix on Tuesdays, Michael Pina on Wednesdays, Chris Herring on Thursdays and Rohan Nadkarni on Fridays.Russell Westbrook wanted to talk about anything other than Oscar Robertson's triple-double record as he approached the milestone in recent weeks. Each investigation by the reporters was greeted with a giggle or a warning nod, followed by a quick goodbye. Westbrook made sure to note their reverence for the Big O, but frankly, more pressing concerns awaited. For perhaps the most uniquely focused player in league history, the No. 182 triple-double didn't necessarily hold any special significance."We've been t...

WNBA 25th anniversary: ​​Cynthia Cooper is the league’s unrecognized star

John W. McDonough / Sports IllustratedIt's a rainy and cloudy Friday morning in Houston in mid-April. Heavy clouds mix with H-Town's famous sticky humidity. It is very gloomy outside. But inside the H&PE Arena on the campus of Texas Southern University, a historically black school that sits smack dab in the middle of the city's Third Ward, there's a different scene. The lights are on, the music is blasting, and there is activity and conversation everywhere. A handful of female basketball players stretch out and exercise in a corner of the room with the coaching staff nearby. On walks, head coach Cynthia Cooper dressed in black leggings, a maroon Nike long-sleeved top, black Nike, and a white face mask."Listen, listen, LISTEN," he yells. "Everyone else is here with their legs slightl...

Buster Posey and Yadier Molina are playing better than ever

Welcome to The Opener, where every weekday morning you will get a current affairs column to start your day on one of SI.com.MLB writers.Yadier Molina and Buster Posey were the top two receivers in baseball for the past decade. They have combined to win five World Series, five Silver Sluggers, 10 Gold Gloves and have formed 15 All-Star teams. The story of the 2010s cannot be told without them, and both could end up in Cooperstown one day. But going into this season, it was fair to assume that his best days were behind him. After all, Molina was an offensive player below the league in three of the previous four years, and age had killed his once otherworldly defense. Posey chose to exit the 2020 season due to COVID-19 because his wife had just adopted prematurely born twins, but the p...
