South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier has told his players that he is retiring, effective immediately. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because South Carolina hasn't publicly announced Spurrier's decision. South Carolina hasn't named an interim coach, but likely would announce someone to finish out the season by Wednesday, the person said.

With big hits rather than beanballs, Curtis Granderson and the New York Mets wiped out the Los Angeles Dodgers to take control of their testy Division Series. Granderson drove in five runs with two doubles off the wall, Travis d'Arnaud and Yoenis Cespedes homered, and New York's dangerous bats busted loose for a 13-7 victory Monday night that gave the Mets a 2-1 advantage in the best-of-five NL playoff. Before a bloodthirsty crowd of 44,276 in the first postseason game at Citi Field, the Mets broke their postseason scoring record as public enemy No. 1 Chase Utley watched from the Los Angeles bench.

Chesapeake crabbers face changing workforce, murky futureRoyals rally on Correa's error, beat Astros 9-6 to even ALDS (Yahoo Sports)

The Wider Image: Crab-Catching BluesBy Ayesha Rascoe WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Morgan Tolley is a third generation crab processor working on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, but he's worried that his industry may be under threat as more and more young people shun the traditional family-oriented trade. The A.E. Phillips crab picking house Tolley manages in Fishing Creek, Maryland, relies on crabs harvested by the "watermen" of the Bay. A shrinking workforce on the water is just one threat to the Chesapeake Bay's iconic blue crab fisheries.

Almost out of time and out of the playoffs, the Kansas City Royals realized they needed more than a big home run. ''We always feel that we're still in games, and we still have a chance,'' first baseman Eric Hosmer said. Houston took a 6-2 lead into the eighth, but a tough error charged to the 21-year-old rookie keyed the Royals' comeback to even the matchup at two games apiece.

Former Chicago schools CEO expected to plead guilty to corruption chargesBlue Jays force Game 5 in ALDS with 8-4 win at Texas (Yahoo Sports)
A former Chicago Public Schools chief executive officer is expected to plead guilty in federal court on Tuesday to accepting bribes. Barbara Byrd-Bennett, 66, resigned in June amid a federal probe into a $20.5 million no-bid contract the cash-strapped district had awarded to her previous employer, educational consulting firm SUPES Academy. Byrd-Bennett's lawyer has said she is cooperating with the investigation.

Sure, R.A. Dickey was disappointed when he saw Blue Jays manager John Gibbons walking toward the mound. Dickey also knew he was handing the ball off to a fellow Cy Young winner, and Toronto went on to beat the Texas Rangers 8-4 on Monday to force a deciding Game 5 at home in the AL Division Series. ''When you look over your shoulder and you've got a guy like this coming in behind you, it makes it a whole lot easier to give the ball to Gibby,'' Dickey said, with David Price seated to his right after the game.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Capitalism and The Wealth Gap

When it comes to the efficient delivery of goods and services, capitalism is the proven economic model that puts people to work and products on the shelves. Whether those jobs end up paying enough money to purchase the items on those shelves is another matter, however.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

Religious Freedom Bill - Protecting The Faithful or Legalized Discrimination?

After a much heated national debate, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the controversial bill that would have allowed people and businesses in the state to refuse services to LBGT people based on their religious belief.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
