Stephen Curry roasted Madison Bumgarner


The Golden State Warriors will open up the Western Conference Semifinals on Tuesday against the Utah Jazz. As usual, the teams will have an off-day after each game. Naturally, the media was curious how Warriors point guard Stephen Curry would spend his off-days. Curry took the opportunity to roast Giants starter Madison Bumgarner.

Via KNBR’s Sam Hustis:

Bumgarner was injured riding his dirt bike on an off-day last month. He’s expected to be out through the All-Star break.

Indians release Mike Napoli

The Cleveland Indians have released Mike Napoli.

This is not terribly surprising as he was seen as a depth move to begin with. Injury insurance for Yonder Alonso at first base and Edwin Encarnacion at DH, neither of whom are injured at the moment. Napoli was on a minor league contract and the Indians made it clear that, if he can’t find a major league job elsewhere, he’s welcome to come back and cool his heels in Columbus in the event he’s needed later.

Which may be what happens if he wants to keep playing because, after a season in which he hit .193/.285/.428, and a spring in which he hit .218/.310/.431, there aren’t likely to be a ton of takers.
