CLEVELAND — The Cavaliers’ jerseys have changed since LeBron James last wore the wine and gold four years ago. James’ number, however, will remain the same. James announced Sunday that he will wear No. 23 in his Cleveland comeback, simultaneously releasing the news on all three of his social media accounts. “23 it is!

By Henry Schulman The rivalry is done until Sept. 12, a blessing for the Giants, who owned the Dodgers in their first three series but in turned were owned at AT&T Park over the weekend. In manager Bruce Bochy’s words, “They’ve had their way with us here,” and that was before the Dodgers completed the three-game sweep by beating Jake Peavy and the Giants 4-3 Sunday night. The Giants at least competed after being outscored 13-1 in the first two games, but the Dodgers played a cleaner game and left town with a half-game lead in the National League West. Clearly, when the teams meet...

Today's links focus on the implications of the trade deadline. Teams would be willing to pay Boston more if Jon Lester would sign an extension after the trade, but he says that is unlikely. (Alex Speier; WEEI.com) Felix Doubront hasn't been talked about too much since moving to the bullpen, but he's...
A restaurant owner will be rewarded by getting to see the final regular season game of Jeter's career.

Jeter signed a ball for Torre that had a special message after passing his former manager in career home runs last season.
There is little doubt Cliff Lee will step onto the Nationals Park mound in Washington on Thursday, just three hours after the non-waiver trade deadline strikes. He has pitched 102/3 innings in two starts and permitted nine runs on 21 hits since his return from a strained left elbow. No contender will add Lee, not until the ace recaptures some dominance.
Running back will miss divisional games against Bengals, SteelersAs expected, Ray Rice did not appeal his two-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy , meaning that the running back will be sidelined for the Ravens' Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals and their Sept. 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Super agent claims that Evan Turner could have made $10 million per year if he'd stayed in Philly. Can't tell if this means he is really good or really bad at what he does for a living. The stalemate continues between Greg Monroe and the Detroit Pistons, and there are few signs that a contract between the team and restricted free agent will be resolved anytime soon. Many people are ascribing motives to the parties involved -- Monroe doesn't want to be here, the Pistons don't think he is worth much -- and while I can't get into anybody's head, let me submit to readers an alternative...
Doug Fister has been excellent for the Nationals all season but the results stand out when Jose Lobaton is behind the plate. It may be coincidence, but with Lobaton catching Fister is 7-0 with a 1.82 ERA over eight starts, including Sunday’s seven scoreless innings in the win over the Cincinnati Reds. “Maybe lucky,” Lobaton said.

The Green Bay Packers prioritized Jordy Nelson over Randall Cobb, signing the veteran receiver to a four-year contract extension Saturday. Cobb presumably would be next.
It's hype season again! We've let the hype trains leave the station, and tested the waters on who is getting people excited, now it's time to vote on it. Every season, a new class of draft picks and undrafted free agents are signed during the preseason. The majority of these players will never be on the roster for a regular season game, but there are always a few diamond in the rough late round/UDFA players who do bring hope to players and fans. That racetrack betting slip that you find on the floor that someone didn't scout properly. Must Reads 2014 Mason/Brennan Hype! Awards:...
DODGERS 4, GIANTS 3 You would always hate to drop the last game of a three-game series, when said last game is on national television (versus the first two games, in which the Dodgers outscored the Giants by 12 runs to regain possession of first place in the NL West). With ESPN pundits like Buster Olney pontificating from the sidelines, this game held relevance even though the Dodgers had already secured the series. In fact, the Giants (and ESPN) would have liked nothing more than the narrative of newly acquired Jake Peavy, serving as the white knight to save the orange and black. Alas,...
