perth_map

As for the return, the Dodgers will receive veteran arm Homer Bailey whose contract will wash some of what the Dodgers traded to the Reds. Even though Bailey and his buyout will cost $28 million, the tax hit is just $17.5 million. The deal also reunites him with hitting coach Turner Ward , who was hired by the Reds this off-season. Kemp was owed $21.5 million in 2019, money that washes with that of Homer Bailey's . Read More »

Liverpool boss Klopp: Title race not just Man City

perth_map

Fabinho and Naby Keita amounted to about £100m worth of incoming talent this season but so far they have not displaced Wijnaldum, who with 22 appearances has played more than any other midfielder this season. "The Reds won't have things all their own way against Wolves, however, given the hosts have won their last three league games and have already taken a point off champions Manchester City, and all three against title-challengers Chelsea , at Molineux already this season".

perth_map

Last month, the PCB's attempt to claim United States dollars 63 million from the BCCI for two bilateral series that did not take place in 2014 and 2015 was rejected by the ICC's Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC). All in all, everything went well for BCCI while PCB has to bear the losses.

Yankees Believe Phillies Will Outbid Them for Manny Machado

perth_map

The Phillies , who have already added Andrew McCutchen in free-agency and Jean Segura via a trade this offseason, are after Machado, Bryce Harper , and other big names. To be fair there is a caveat to the 100 wins thing; when your in the same division as the 108-win Red Sox a 100 win season isn't the same as it would be in a division where you dominated, so it does make sense the Yankees want to make some changes to compete.

Asked about his 123-run innings in the first innings, Kohli said: "When you don't win you don't really rank your performances so it's irrelevant because we didn't get the result we wanted. "I was really proud of the way our team conducted itself on the field this week". Resuming on an overnight score of 132, Usman Khawaja and Tim Paine shared a patient partnership to take Australia's lead past the 200-run mark. Read More »

Lightning goalie Vasilevskiy returning to face Toronto

perth_map

My prediction about the Panthers needing both their goalies did not pan out. "What I don't like is we didn't play hard enough". You have to hand it to Alexander Barkov, that was a pretty sweet goal. "We just have to stay with it and find a way to generate some results from that to give us a better chance". There were also signs they weren't getting the message that a lot of improvement is needed. Read More »

Charles Barkley on Anthony Davis to the Lakers: 'The fix is in'

perth_map

Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans' front-office did their best to brush off the comments. The Celtics obviously do not want to deal Tatum, who they took with the No. 1 overall pick since this past offseason. I love the fans. When Davis joined Klutch Sports, LeBron James' agency, many believed that it was the first step of a Davis-James power duo in LA. Read More »

Carlos Beltran To Join Yankees As Special Advisor

perth_map

And the Yankees have questions for Machado, over his comments in The Athletic about his selective hustle and about his on-field conduct, which came into sharper focus during the 2018 postseason with the Dodgers. But with the timely addition of Beltran, and reports that the betting world is picking the Yankees to land Machado, the plot is ever thickening. NY may not want to have such a massive contract on the books considering it traded for former NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton last winter, ... Read More »

Patriots’ Josh Gordon Announces He’s Stepping Away From Football

perth_map

The NFL finally reinstated him in November 2017 on a conditional basis, and he played six more games for the Browns before being traded to the Patriots for a fifth-round pick. The Patriots are also in the middle of a playoff run, and this suspension/leave also affects them on the field. Now that he is leaving football, possibly for the last time, he will no longer have that chance. Read More »

WHO DAT! Saints win 12-9 against Carolina Panthers

perth_map

He was the only glimpse of offense that the Panthers had against the Saints and will continue to be the most important offensive piece in these last two games - especially with Cam Newton's shoulder situation. During Monday night's game against the New Orleans Saints , McCaffrey did what only one other player in the Super Bowl era has been able to do by posting 50 or more passing, rushing, and receiving yards in a single game.

Schefter: former Bills QB Peterman to sign with Raiders

perth_map

Still, this is not exactly a banner signing. He was benched for (Tyrod) Taylor at halftime and Taylor resumed the starting job until getting injured later in the season. Peterman was drafted by the Bills in 2017. I'm honestly so glad that Peterman landed with Jon Gruden. Gruden was convinced Peterman was a born leader, worthy of no lower than a second-round pick.

Astros get great value with Michael Brantley signing

perth_map

This past season, Brantley hit.309 with an OPS of.832. However, they'd obviously prefer to have an everyday player like Brantley out there. Brantley gives the Astros a left-handed bat in the middle of their lineup. A two-time All Star and a Silver Slugger, Brantley can certainly add a lot to an Astros team that, while not starved for offense, could always benefit from a little extra offensive help. Read More »
