Nets have reached an agreement with Lionel Hollins to become the team's new head coach.
The Nets did not wait around after the departure of Jason Kidd. Hollins will make a nice fit for the Nets and their veteran core. When Hollins' headed up the Grizzlies, they ran a very slow pace in Memphis, which figures to be a style he'll take with him to Brooklyn. He's one of the best coaches in the league and the Nets will benefit from Kidd leaving.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Michael Pineda went 6 2/3 innings, allowed one run, and struck out eight batters, as the Yankees completed the sweep of the Royals on Wednesday afternoon.
Going all the way back to May 10th, Pineda probably had his best career start, as he went seven innings, allowed one run, and struck out an astounding 16 batters. After his career day, Pineda went on to struggle for the next two games, allowing a combined nine runs, while striking out a mere five batters. After today’s game, it finally appears that Pineda recovered his form, as he lasted 6 2/3 innings, allowed one run, and struck out eight batters. So long as Pineda stays healthy, he has the look of a guy that can anchor your fantasy rotation, with an electric fastball and an unhittable slider. Consider his previous two starts an exception rather than the narrative of his otherwise excellent 2015 season so far. Analysis: Dom Murtha
