Minnesota Twins close to trade for LHP Jaime Garcia


While Hughes is dealing with a recurrence of thoracic outlet syndrome in his throwing shoulder, Garcia made it back from 2014 surgery for the same ailment. Levine was hired as the Twins' general manager last October after 11 seasons with the Rangers. "He's been a hard guy to keep on the field". The Twins are in a spot where they don't want to make a deal that hurts their farm system moving forward as they look to compete long-term, but with being only a half game from an AL Central division ...

Matt Kuchar's 29 on front nine of British Open matches 1991 mark

Spieth, who almost won the 2015 Open Championship , looks like the golfer to beat this year after a fantastic five-under-65 round on Thursday that didn't feature a single bogey. "He's become a good friend and somebody who I could call at any time, and he's offered that", said Spieth. "We had a couple of awfully challenging days there at the Scottish Open". Read More »

Spieth out in front in British Open

Koepka, who won the U.S. Open last month, hit three successive birdies from the 11th hole before making his only bogey at the 16th. I finished the first round one over and I wanted to be at least level par or under par if possible. Spieth was at 6-under 134. "He knows how to play his game". But his best shot was with his feet in the sand. Not only was the ball on a slight slope, the rake marks left his ball between two ridges. Read More »

Iran bags two more medals in World Para Athletics Championships


Last year, her performance in Rio Paralympics was not satisfactory as she was not able to get off the mark after three unsuccessful throws. Dalal also achieved the personal best of the season. James Turner clears away from the field to win the T36 400 metres final at the World Para Athletics Championships in London. His compatriot Asadollah Azimi also settled for bronze medal with 7.93 meters. Read More »

Chris Froome set to win fourth Tour de France title

The 32-year-old would have known at that point his fourth Tour, and third in a row, was in the bag as Colombian Uran had, moments before, run wide on one of the final corners, touching the barriers and losing all momentum. "It's a three-week race and we rode it as such", he said. Bury's Simon Yates hung on to seventh place overall, securing the young riders' white jersey - which was won by his twin brother and Orica-Scott team-mate Adam 12 months ago. Read More »

British Open: Roaring Rory McIlroy on the move at Birkdale

Trouble off the tee at the 15th cost him a shot, but he regained it on the only other par five, the 17th. Spieth's tendency to just hang around in golf tournaments comes from his ability to get buckets. But he is now set up perfectly heading into the weekend, while Spieth and Koepka were among those left to face the prospect of more unpleasant weather. Read More »

Rory McIlroy inspired by pep talk at British Open

Twice major victor Spieth didn't drop a shot in his 65 although he was joined on five under by US Open champion Koepka. His 1-under-par 69 gave him a 36-hole score of 6-under 134. Spieth, victor of the Masters and U.S. Open in 2015, is brilliant with a wedge and a putter. Only eight under-par rounds were recorded on Friday and just nine players finished below par after 36 holes. Read More »

Derrick Rose in contract talks with Cleveland Cavaliers


Chris Haynes of ESPN added the Miami Heat , New York Knicks and Minnesota Timberwolves are also among the teams Irving would like to be traded to.

Regional Golfers Open golf update


Out of the afternoon deluge, first-round leader Jordan Spieth emerged with a one-under 69 for six under and a two-shot cushion over fellow American Matt Kuchar . I know I need help! Now he's simply trying to get back into the conversation. He birdied the third and picked up another shot at the hard par-four sixth to lie three-under par for the day. Read More »

Former British Open victor Mark O'Meara tees off with a shocker


Quoteworthy: "You get so excited for these tournaments". At one point on the 12th hole Saturday I had 129 yards to the pin and hit a six-iron in and thought to myself, "I am glad I'm over here, glad I'm doing this". "I hit it low off the heel, which is easy to do when you're trying to carve a cut". "At Carnoustie 10 years ago, if someone told me you'd be a four-time major victor and you won The Open , and you're one leg away from the career Grand Slam, you've played on three winning ...

Pep talk from caddie inspires Rory McIlroy at British Open

Open Championship: Rory McIlroy 'ecstatic' after second-round 68

McIlroy played Royal Birkdale's front nine in 39 shots Thursday - hence the reason for Fitzgerald's team talk - he was eight shots better today to move up the leaderboard. That's how windy it is out there. McIlroy was 5 over after nine holes but rallied on the back nine of the opening round to finish with a respectable 71. Read More »

Kyrie Irving recently requested trade from Cavaliers


Score first playmakers are the norm, but such a load on the offensive end generally means that it isn't optimal for that player to then also go and defend the best guard on the opposing team. Those are great assets, especially when you already have two emerging stars in Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins . If a deal presents itself that allows the Cavaliers to move Irving for the kind of two-way perimeter players necessary to best take on the Warriors , then they can do it. Read More »

Breaking down Kyrie Irving's four preferred trade destinations


The Knicks desperately need a point guard and Irving listed NY as one of his preferred destinations. It is unclear if James and Irving have spoken with each other since Irving made the trade request.

"hate by state". Read More »

Chris Froome glad to put Tour's mountain stages behind him


While there was some excitement at the finish, there was precious little going on behind a day-long 20-man escape group with Froome's Team Sky colleague forming a white wedge at the front of the peloton to keep their leader out of trouble. "Inside the last two kilometres or so, I made a final attack and nobody could follow". The peloton eventually rolled in at a leisurely place more than 12 minutes after Boasson Hagen claimed the first stage win for the Dimension Data team at this tour. Read More »

Liverpool crowned Prem Asia Trophy champions with Leicester win


In a 55-minute outing, the Brazil global played a perfectly-executed through ball for Mohamed Salah's 20th-minute equaliser after Islam Slimani's opener, before netting the victor with a trademark strike moments before half-time. Leicester attacked incisively in the early stages and, after good work down the left flank by Jamie Vardy , Riyad Mahrez - linked with a possible move away from the club during the close-season - crossed for Slimani to powerfully head home at the far post.

Debutant Manley takes Open lead, Poulter goes strong


They were joined by double major victor Jordan Spieth after he birded the second, although Poulter immediately rolled in an 18-foot birdie to regain the outright lead after reaching the turn in 32 at two under.
