Neither is correct

In this excerpt from Yahoo! Sports, neither or nor are is correct:

neither or are mlb

The correlative conjunction pair is neither…nor, not neither…or. And when neither…nor joins two nouns as the subject of a sentence, the verb (which should be is denying) must agree with the noun closer to it (which is Gordon).
