Yu Darvish of the Texas Rangers is nasty on the mound.

He has four wins, leads Major League Baseball in strikeouts and nearly threw a perfect game already this season. That's what having five great pitches can do for you.

Check out his impressive arsenal in one animated GIF!

Yu Darvish GIF

Any baseball fan who's seen Darvish pitch can tell you that he's good, but this really illustrates how dynamic - and different - his five pitches can be.

Perhaps opposing hitters should take notes ... or forget they ever saw this. If you know what's coming and still can't hit it, that's even more disheartening.

The Detroit Lions may not win very often on the field.

But the team has now gone back-to-back where it really counts: The Madden video game cover!

Following in the cleat-steps of Calvin Johnson last year, legendary running back Barry Sanders was voted the cover star of this wildly popular video game's 25th edition, beating out an impressive field in the process.

Sanders triumphed over Ray Lewis, Marcus Allen, Joe Montana and Jerry Rice on his way to the finals, defeating Adrian Peterson in the championship yesterday.

Hope Solo. With the U.S. soccer star, there's rarely a dull moment.

Wednesday afternoon, Hope was apparently trying to either text or direct-message a friend, but ended up Tweeting out her phone number to 660,000 followers.

Solo quickly deleted the tweet ... then claimed it was a joke?

Hope S. Tweets

U ain't got that new number, Hope Solo followers! BURN!

The number was actually for her hair salon (we've been told, not that we called), making the situation - or Solo's rationalization of it - no less puzzling.

Naturally, this captured the attention of Solo's fans:

With the NFL draft beginning today, it only makes sense that Draft Day, the new football dramedy from Ivan Reitman, is also beginning production today!

In fact, the film will shoot some scenes at the actual draft, before moving to Cleveland to finish production.

In addition to the start of filming, Draft Day has added Sean "P. Diddy" Combs and Terry Crews to the already star-studded cast.

Kevin Costner stars as a General Manager who spends Draft Day trying to save a football franchise in Cleveland.

The NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars have new uniforms!

Will they make the team any less terrible in 2013?

Unclear. Will they look a little sleeker? You bet!

Jaguars New Uniforms

The patch on the left side of the jersey, over the heart, ties into the team's theme of Stand United and pays tribute to the Florida city’s military presence.

The helmet fades from black to gold, the numbers and lettering are more angular and distinctive, and the Nike uniforms are supposedly more "high tech."

Whatever that means.

Much like the Miami Dolphins' new logo, the switch doesn't inspire strong opinions one way or the other, and doesn't change a whole lot. But it's cool.

Someone forgot to tell new Cleveland Browns linebacker Quentin Groves that training camp is for tackling dummies, not acting like a dummy.

The Mississippi native was arrested on April 17 in Ohio on charges that he solicited a prostitute over the phone. The only problem?

Groves was actually speaking to an undercover female officer and was subsequently caught in a police sting when he arrived to… ummm… pick up his package.

"[Groves] made arrangements for certain acts ... and requested 'full service' and stated he would bring condoms," the police report stated, adding in detail: "He agreed to one hour of time for [$100] and was told that anal would be an additional [$20]."

The U.S. government is suing Lance Armstrong for $40 million.

The banned cyclist, 41, is accused of violating his contract with his team and is said to have been "unjustly enriched" while cheating to win the Tour de France.

Lance Armstrong Signs

That team? The U.S. Postal Service, which "paid about $40 million to sponsor the USPS racing team from 1998 to 2004," court documents said.

Armstrong admitted to doping during all of his seven Tour wins.

Barry Bonds' giant, commemorative home run plaque was stolen straight off the outfield wall at AT&T Park last night in San Francisco, which is great because:

  1. The guy's home run record is bogus anyway due to massive steroid use
  2. You'd probably have to be on steroids to gank something that big
Bonds Missing Plaque

A rep for the team confirms it was boosted Tuesday night, saying, "We're not sure what happened. We're reviewing video, but haven't found anything yet.''

The plaque was unveiled after Bonds hit his record-breaking 756th home run in 2007.

The walking BALCO clearance sale finished with 762 for his tainted career.

Turns out, George R.R. Martin knows about more than dragons and dire wolves, White Walkers and three-eyes ravens.

The Game of Thrones author also knows that it's never a good idea to trade one of the top players in the National Football League for a couple of draft picks.

But that's exactly what the New York Jets did with stud cornerback Darrelle Revis this week, prompting an epic diatribe from George R.R. Martin.


"They have hardly done anything right since Joe Willie Namath won SuperBowl III, and every time you think maybe they are finally turning the corner, they find some new way to screw things up," Martin blogs.

NBA star Dwight Howard is reportedly expecting his fifth baby - with his fifth baby mama - if accusations flying on Twitter this week are to be believed.

Howard's current girlfriend Christine Vest are about to have a baby, according to reports, which would take the Lakers center's total to five children.

By five different women ... again, according to reports not confirmed by the baller or any other 100 percent reliable source we can find at the moment.

Christine Vest, his girlfriend, was spotted at a recent Lakers game looking pregnant. Like "late second trimester pregnant," an AOL report noted.
