The free agency of George Springer is likely to come down to the Mets and Blue Jays.
The 2020/21 NBA season is underway, but James Harden trade rumors refuse to wane. Harden is taking to the court on a depleted Houston Rockets team, and has admitted he's not in game shape. Yet, the former MVP continues to put up gaudy numbers.
The Philadelphia Phillies added to their bullpen on Wednesday. A three-team trade with the Rays and Dodgers become public knowledge, with the Phillies acquiring left-handed reliever Jose Alvarado.
Devastating dunks, highlight passes and a competitive edge that even all-time greats like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant have commented on. But there is an undeniable frustration that comes along with watching him play, especially when you root for him. But before that, let's consider where Russell Westbrook was before he arrived in the NBA journey.
And whether a case of recency bias or agenda-setting on the part of the media, Portland guard Damian Lillard sparked not only comparisons between himself and Curry, but also conversations that he may have surpassed the three-time champion after his spirited playoff performances in the NBA bubble—a debate that has endured to this day.
Just 24 hours after making a trade to acquire Rays ace Blake Snell, the San Diego Padres made another massive move toward their increasingly evident goal of a World Series, trading for Yu Darvish of the Chicago Cubs, alongside his personal catcher Victor Caratini. In return, Chicago got RHP Zach Davies and four young prospects.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have just watched their nearest divisional rivals trade for Blake Snell and Yu Darvish. The Padres have become the biggest story of the MLB offseason, adding two elite starting pitchers to an already talented core.
This off-season the Detroit Lions will again start over in searching for a new general manager and head coach who can turn around the fortunes of this woebegone franchise.
This trade surprised many in the MLB world, as Snell still has three years left on his contract, and without a notably high price on those years too. He was due $10.5 million in 2021 and the following two years would cost $12.5m and $16m respectively, before he would become a free agent going into his age-31 season of 2024.
So, this is a perfect time to try and see where he stands amongst the elite backs in the NFL. The closest and most natural comparison for Kamara is the Carolina Panthers’ workhorse, Christian McCaffrey. Both of these players are recognised for their fantastic work in the passing game, but they are also both very efficient runners. So, let’s take a look – Alvin Kamara vs Christian McCaffrey.
Cutting payroll for 2021, Kris Bryant trade rumours are surfacing once again. The All-Star third baseman is a free agent at the end of next season, and the Chicago Cubs could look to swing a deal this offseason.
The NBA Christmas Day games were a bit disappointing. The Heat easily beat the Pelicans, the Bucks cruised past the Warriors, and the Nets were far better than the Celtics.
Five NBA games take place on Christmas Day. The Pelicans meet the Heat before the Warriors take on Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks. They're followed by the Nets and Celtics before attention switches to the Western Conference for the Mavericks versus the Lakers and a playoff rematch between the Clippers and the Nuggets.
This year’s NBA Christmas Day games are no different, featuring an exciting cast of young up-and-coming players with everything to prove matched up against league veterans.
