Well, as it turns out, Tiger Woods’ DUI arrest was probably warranted. The former golf star’s toxicology report was released to the public by the Palm Beach Sheriff County’s office, and get a load of the combination of stuff this cat was under: Hydrocodone, the generic form of a painkiller branded as Vicodin. Hydromorphone, a strong painkiller commonly known as Dilaudid. Alprazolam, a mood and sleep drug commonly known as Xanax. (The report also listed Alpha-Hydroxy Alprazolam, which is what Xanax becomes when it breaks down in the system.) Zolpidem, a sleep drug commonly known as Ambien. Delta-9 carboxy...Read More
The Yankees have made their blockbuster move at the trade deadline. With Michael Pineda going down for the season and Masahiro Tanaka’s struggles, it was inevitable that the surging-again Yankees were going to make a starting move for pitching.

The White Sox and the Cubs never make trades. For whatever reason, they just don’t. Until Thursday morning. The White Sox had been dangling new-ace Jose Quintana after dealing Chris Sale to Boston in the winter. The crosstown Cubs on the north side stepped up to the plate with the prospect haul GM Rick Hahn on the south side craved. #Cubs today acquired LHP José Quintana from the #WhiteSox for OF Eloy Jimenez, RHP Dylan Cease, and INFs Matt Rose and Bryant Flete. pic.twitter.com/R8E9u9anls — Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) July 13, 2017 Jimenez was the Cubs’ top prospect in baseball...Read More
