  1. The Rory Coaster Reaches Its Apex at the British Open

    Shane Ryan

    There's never really been a period of time when it has been boring to be Rory McIlroy, but it's a fair guess that 2014 is already a strong contender for Most Interesting Year of His Life. Entering the season, the two-time major champion and...

  3. Just Another Day

    Shane Ryan

    Sportswriters crave thoughtful quotes from the athletes they cover, and we set the bar very low. Give us anything - the lame joke, the trite observation - and we'll eat it up. It's part of the agreement, and both sides have lear...

  7. PitchCraft: Mark Buehrle, Crafty Old Codger

    Shane Ryan

    Remember how your dad lost the ability to jump at about age 50, but still managed to beat you one-on-one at basketball for a few years because of annoying fadeaways from the corner and pump fakes and cheap little jump hooks in the lane? OK, maybe thi...

  11. PitchCraft: Yu Darvish, Eclectic Genius

    Shane Ryan

    When I played Little League, everyone wanted to be a pitcher. You controlled the game, and the batter was at your mercy. It was wonderful to be on that hill, and even having a total breakdown and walking five consecutive batters before you got uncere...

  12. The Uncensored 2014 U.S. Open Power Rankings

    Shane Ryan

    I just realized something: Unlike the other American majors, the U.S. Open lacks a sweet tagline. The Masters has "a tradition unlike any other," and the PGA Championship is "glory's last shot." Both pretty cool, right? But o...

  13. The 15 People You Meet in a Golf Gallery

    Shane Ryan

    Before the 2014 PGA Tour season, I'd covered exactly five golf tournaments in my life. It was still a nice novelty, and I had the luxury of focusing solely on the players. This year, I've been to 17 tournaments, and when you're constan...

  15. PitchCraft: Jeff Samardzija, the Accursed Ace

    Shane Ryan

    Remember when Felix Hernandez won the Cy Young in 2010 with a 13-12 record, and we were all like, "Wow, the Mariners are really, really terrible," and it helped the last stubborn holdouts understand how useless the "win" was as a ...

  16. PitchCraft: Masahiro Tanaka, Yankee Split King

    Shane Ryan

    With the sad news that Jose Fernandez is out for the year, Yankee rookie Masahiro Tanaka is now the MLB leader in strikeout-to-walk percentage, which is as good a way as any to sum up his dominance in a single stat. In his first year in America, Tana...
