Sterling to use divorce to avoid selling Clippers?

Fans hoping for a quick resolution will likely be disappointed. Like a movie villain who jumps back to life in the final scene, Donald Sterling might have one last act of horror in store for the NBA. It's a nightmare scenario for the Los Angeles Clippers: Sterling decides to fight to keep his family's ownership of the team, dragging out his case and creating a problem for the league next season if players decide they won't work for a team owned by Sterling. ... "If somebody is looking for a litigation strategy, and they want to slow down a forced sale by the league, you file for divorce so you get more people involved arguing over it," said Sharon Kalemkiarian, a family law specialist in San Diego. "Everybody's got to spend more money trying to figure out what happens to it." (USA Today) Comment

David and Derek Carr a package deal?

Within about a week, the Browns could have two Carrs parked in their franchise garage. David Carr, the former No. 1 overall pick of the Texans and big brother of Browns' prospect Derek Carr, told cleveland.com Thursday that the Browns are one of about six teams that have talked to him about signing as a backup if they draft his little brother. "Yeah, they've definitely been one of those teams that have expressed interest," said Carr, 34. "There are probably about six or seven teams that have been real interested in that scenario, so we'll see what happens. It's going to be exciting." In Cleveland, David would especially come in handy because he knows offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's offense inside and out. Shanahan was wide receivers coach for the Texans under Gary Kubiak in 2006. (The Plain Dealer) Comment

Frustration in Red Sox clubhouse

Thanks to coming out on the wrong side of a replay, again, Jake Peavy was seething. And the more he talked, the more he seethed. ... [In the midst of a doubleheader day], the veteran right-hander did what his teammates who wield bats for a living were unable to do all day and most of the night at Fenway Park. He teed off. "We as a whole, MLB, we've got to get our act together because this is a joke," Peavy said [Thursday] after Dustin Pedroia was called out by umpire Toby Basner, whose ruling was upheld because of inconclusive evidence to the contrary. "It's embarrassing for fans and everybody to see." If the Red Sox had been even half as hard-hitting as Peavy's comments, they wouldn't have dropped both games, 2-1 and 6-5, marking the first time they've been swept in a doubleheader since April 21 of last season.
