(CNN)As my family and I cheered and high-fived throughout the Women's World Cup final Sunday night, I found myself more than once walking out of the TV room and pumping my fists in the air when I was alone. I wasn't cheering for Carli Lloyd's unbelievable hat trick, with three goals in the first 16 minutes of the game, or the amazing career of Abby Wambach, who has scored more international goals (183) than any other woman or man in soccer history. I was cheering that my girls, ages 7 and 9, soccer players themselves, were … [Read more...] about U.S. World Cup triumph should level playing field for women’s sports

Can the Dodgers still make a big splash this offseason? by Matt Snyder @MattSnyderCBS Dec 12, 2019 at 2:26 pm ET • 4 min read SAN DIEGO - The 2019 Major League Baseball Winter Meetings are coming to a close. After several days of big free-agent signings in Southern California, the Dodgers' big ticket acquisition so far was... a $10 million lottery ticket in reliever Blake Treinen. To be clear, I think that's an outstanding high-reward signing, it's just that it's not exactly what most Dodgers fans likely had in mind. Especially in light of how much this year's frenzied Winter Meetings contrasted with last year's, it has to be somewhat of an empty feeling in Dodgers nation. Stephen Strasburg signed a deal to remain with the Nationals. Gerrit Cole went to the Yankees after the Dodgers' bid came up short. Anthony Rendon went to the Angels and the Dodgers didn't make a final offer because they reportedly got the feeling they couldn't land … [Read more...] about MLB hot stove: Where will Dodgers turn after striking out on market’s three best free agents?
BOSTON (CBS) — As baseball’s Winter Meetings get set to conclude, the David Price trade talk is heating up. The Red Sox have reportedly talked with five teams about a potential Price trade, a move that has gained a significant amount of traction over the last few days. According to MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand, the Red Sox have talked with the Padres, Cardinals, White Sox and Reds, with the Los Angeles Angels also reaching out regarding the lefty. Price has three years and $96 million remaining on his contract with Boston, so moving him would go a long way in the club’s quest to trim payroll for the 2020 season.Price’s contract was once seen as a roadblock in any deal for the lefty starter. But after Stephen Stasburg (seven-year, $245 million deal with the Nationals) and Gerrit Cole (nine-year, $324 million deal with the Yankees) agreed to monster contracts in free agency this week, Price’s remaining deal is a lot more enticing to teams in need of some … [Read more...] about Report: Red Sox Have Talked With At Least Five Teams About A David Price Trade
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Third baseman Anthony Rendon and the Los Angeles Angels agreed to a $245 million, seven-year contract Wednesday, a person with direct knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not been announced and was subject to a successful physical. Rendon is the third prized free agent to strike a big-money deal at this week's baseball winter meetings. He'll join three-time MVPs Mike Trout and Albert Pujols on a team that's made just one postseason appearance in the past decade. The Angels had missed out on free agent right-hander Gerrit Cole, who agreed to a record $324 million, nine-year contract with the New York Yankees on Tuesday night, a person familiar with the deal told the AP. “With our flexibility, if we miss a big player, there’s still very talented players that are accessible in the free agent and trade market right now," Angels general manager Billy Eppler said earlier … [Read more...] about AP Source: Angels, Anthony Rendon reach $245M, 7-year deal
