Veteran pitcher CC Sabathia has agreed to return to the New York Yankees after his contract expired. He will sign a one year, $10 million deal with the team after he passes a physical, according to the MLB.com report. The figure is a sizable discount compared to the last five seasons when he earned $25 million per year. According to his agent Kyle Thousand, Sabathia returns to the Yankees because he has some “unfinished business” there.
“CC feels there’s unfinished business to attend to,“- said Thousand to MLB. “There were competitive offers that CC was weighing, but in the end, CC wanted to come back and win a championship with the Yankees. He loves his teammates, the clubhouse and the moves the Yankees are making. He wants to bring home another championship to the Yankee fans.”
The 37-year-old met with other teams in recent weeks, including the Los Angeles Angels and the Toronto Blue Jays, but it looks like he wasn’t keen on leaving New York. After the loss in Game 7 of the American League championship, Sabathia confirmed he wants to stay with the Yankees.
“I feel like this is a young team, and we will turn this into something great,” – he said. “This is my home, and I want to see this thing through.“
After being drafted 20th overall in the 1998 MLB draft by the Cleveland Indians, Sabathia waited until 2011 to make his majors debut. He was the youngest player in the MLB at the time but finished second in the AL voting for Rookie of the Year. During his time with the Indians, Sabathia had three All-Star appearances before being traded to the Milwaukee Brewers in 2008. The following year he signed with the Yankees, with whom he won his first championship ring in 2009. During his career, Sabathia managed 237–146 record alongside 3.70 ERA.
Atlanta Hawks and shooting guard Marco Belinelli have finalized buyout agreement, which will make Belinelli a free agent and give him a chance to sign with another team. According to NBA’s official website, the Hawks requested waivers on the 31-year-old guard/forward.
The Hawks tried to work out a trade deal for Belinelli before the NBA trade deadline but didn’t succeed. Philadelphia 76ers, San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder were previously mentioned as teams who might be interested in the player, and all three teams have an open roster spot available for free agents.
Although Belinelli isn’t the impactful player he used to be, the teams with the intention of making a deeper playoff run could benefit from his shooting ability. He played in 52 games for the Hawks this season, averaging 11.4 points, 2.0 assists, and 1.9 rebounds.
After starting his professional basketball career in Italy, Marco Belinelli entered the 2007 NBA draft where he was taken 18th overall by the Golden State Warriors. After two years with the Warriors, Belinelli played for the Toronto Raptors, New Orleans Hornets, and Chicago Bulls before signing with the Spurs in 2013. In San Antonio, he played some of the best basketball in his career, being an important bench player in the Spurs run for NBA Championship in 2014.
In 2015 he signed with the Sacramento Kings but stayed just one year before being traded to the Charlotte Hornets. In 2017, the Hornets sent Belinelli alongside center Miles Plumlee to the Hawks in exchange for Dwight Howard.
The NFL offseason didn’t even start yet, and we have ourselves a first blockbuster trade. Kansas City Chiefs just traded their starting quarterback Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins in exchange for a third-round pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller.
According to the reports, Smith, who has one year left on his deal, will sign a contract extension with the Redskins in the coming days. The contract will be for four-year and worth around $23.5 million per year. $71 million of that money will be guaranteed.
This trade works well for both teams. Chiefs already have Smith’s successor in Patrick Mahomes II, whom they drafted in 2017 NFL draft with the 10th overall pick. Although it is a small sample size, with his performance in the Week 17 against the Denver Broncos, Mahomes looked like he is the right man to fill the QB spot. He completed 22 of his 35 passes, throwing for 284 yards in a 27-24 win. They will also get a reliable cornerback in Fuller, who will almost certainly be a starter in the next season not to mention the $17 million in cap relief.
When it comes to Redskins, they decided to be the ones to make the first move, and secure their QB position. Current Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason once again after playing two years with a franchise tag. Redskins and Cousins failed to work out a long-term deal once again, and franchise-tagging the 29-year old veteran for the third time would be costly for the team since he would be owed $34.5 million. With Smith, they get a quarterback with playoff experience and similar production, but for less money.
Cousins, on the other hand, will now be one of the most desirable free agents in the offseason, with Denver Broncos being a strong suitor.
India’s leading cueist Pankaj Advani teamed up with Laxman Rawat to demolish Pakistan in the final of the Asian Team Snooker championship here on Wednesday.
Advani drew first blood by putting on a sterling performance against Mohammad Bilal.
After the Pakistan player scored the first solitary point and benefited from a foul from Advani, the Indian bounced back to piece together a brilliant break of 83 to seal the first tie of the best-of-five final.
India’s fate was going to be determined by Advani’s partner Rawat’s form and he did not disappoint.
He rose to the occasion to head towards what was to be his first major international title with a clinical 73 break to win the frame without allowing his opponent, Babar Masih to score a single point.
To complete a whitewash the Indian players needed to maintain their superlative performance in the doubles tie.
However, the Pakistani duo responded well to pressure of being 0-2 down. But it was Rawat who saved the day for India by scoring a 50 break just when they had a deficit of a similar margin.
A critical miss on the pink before starting with the colours, brought Masih back to the table, gifting him a regulation clearance of yellow to black. But he fumbled on the green and gave Advani an unintended snook.
From the least violent potential Olympic sport to the most: Mixed martial arts, or MMA, also has a wide international following in countries ranging from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom to Japan, Thailand, Brazil and Australia. It also recently formed its own international federation, a crucial step on the way to possible Olympic status. But MMA suffers from its violent reputation—Senator John McCain once called it “human cockfighting”—and its no-holds-barred style might not jibe with the Olympic emphasis on safety for athletes, which translates to padded helmets for boxers and heavy padding for taekwondo fighters.
In some ways, MMA would have been more at home in the ancient Olympic Games in Greece, where competitors would battle fiercely—sometimes to the death—in sports like boxing, wrestling and pankration (a kind of ancient MMA that combined techniques of boxing and wrestling and had very few rules). Such violent sports have an even longer Olympic history than some of today’s most popular events, such as swimming or gymnastics. Nevertheless, it will probably be an uphill battle for MMA to score a spot in the Olympic Games.
Few sports can boast as long and rich a history as bowling. Ancient Egyptians are believed to have practiced an early form of the game, and it is thought to have been popular in England during the reign of Henry VIII. In modern times, 10-pin bowling has long been one of the world’s most popular sports, with an estimated 100 million participants worldwide. In 1979 the IOC officially recognized the Fédération Internationale des Quilleurs as the governing body of bowling, and the organization has been lobbying for bowling to become part of the Olympics ever since.
In 1988 bowling came painfully close to fulfilling its Olympic dream when it was included as a demonstration sport at the Seoul Summer Games. Only 20 nations competed, however, and the competition received little media coverage because of its demonstration status. South Korea, Singapore and Finland won the gold, silver and bronze, respectively, in the men’s bowling event that year, while the Philippines, Japan and Finland finished 1-2-3 for the women. Bowling hasn’t returned to the Olympics since.
The 2017 club season for the Championship Kart Racing Association (CKRA) came to a close this past weekend at East Coast Karting in Dieppe, New Brunswick. After a grueling season, four drivers were crowned champion and get to celebrate their accomplishments throughout the off-season.
After our visit to East Coast Karting this summer, the championship chases were in full swing at the CKRA Summer Festival, and the second half of the season appeared to be even more competitive with some title chases coming down to the final race.
So we caught up with Reg LeBlanc, the official CKRA announcer to give us a rundown of the final championship standings.
ships in Mont-Tremblant!
PSL Moncton’s convoy will be leaving world headquarters and making its way to Mont Tremblant this week. With Gerald Caseley Sr. leading the charge and the rest of the team at his mercy, everyone will be fired up when they arrive.
PSL Moncton intends to leave its mark on more than just the bathrooms in Mont Tremblant. Their 15 driver squad will be competing resiliently in the Briggs Junior, Senior and Masters Classes. The Briggs program has been a focal point for PSL Moncton, as team owner Gerald Caseley Sr. believes firmly in the program and the reasons are self evident with the numbers that will be present in the Briggs categories this year.
The Junior line up consists of a group of kids that will not only be competing fiercely for the National title but will undoubtedly give everyone in the paddock a run for the most enthusiastic and sportsmanlike crew. Many of them have been attending regional events in Quebec and have attained great results and have shown tremendous growth. The seven Junior drivers will generate their own successes but will each contribute to the teams success as well. Catherine White, a social guru will undoubtedly bring energy to the tent with her personality and custom pink PSL Moncton suit. The passionate and very well read Graci Young will be a contender with her highly strategic racing style. Brady Dow will be heading up with the championship in his sights in his last year of Junior. Keep an eye out for Stephen Oliver who has consistently battled for the top of the podium all season long and done so in electric fashion. If Canadian Tire or TSN is looking for entertainment this will be the man to watch. As the current Maritime Champion Kelsey Hann is excited to display her talents on a national scale in hopes of adding Canadian Champion to her resume. Newest addition Ben Mundle will be looking to gain experience and compete with the best in Mont-Tremblant. The Novice veteran Fraser Murray, since winning the Maritime Championship, has moved up to the Junior class and will undoubtedly bring his aggressively precise driving skill to the field with the intent to take home a Canadian Championship back to the Maritimes. Justin Beers rounds out the Junior team and has but one accomplishment left in the Junior class before heading to Senior, this being a Junior National Title. Team Owner, Gerald Caseley Sr. shared his thoughts of his Junior squad with CKN:
“We’ve never had such a large and promising team with us in Tremblant. These are a great group of kids that will further the series and the sport with their skills and their personalities. Their ability to bring up everyone up around them never ceases to amaze me.”
The Senior crew is going up with one goal in mind and that is to take a stranglehold on that Canadian Championship. PSL Moncton intends to do this with experience, as their deep team are no strangers to National competition and their individual skill will only be overshadowed by their selfless intention to share information, ensuring overall team success. Heading off the charge, with valuable intel from his recent testing session in Mont Tremblant, Mathieu Demers will be getting the team up to pace quickly. His successful season in Quebec proves that he will be a top contender for the National Championship. Gerald Caseley Jr. will be jumping in the kart for the second time this season hoping for the best in amongst the stacked Briggs Senior field. We have no idea how PSL Moncton pulled it off, but coming out of the woodwork is Michael Adams. Rumor has it Michael was ecstatic in finding out his vacation from professional hand modeling fell on the exact week that the Canadian Karting Nationals were to take place. Aaron Kennedy, coming off a very successful season, will be using his smooth style in to ensure he is at the front of the grid. Robert Conard, who has been doing double duty in a Formula BMW series will be in fine form in his pursuit for the title. Aaron Dumont wants it as bad as anyone out there as he knows if he returns to University with a National Karting Championship he could very well rule the school. Last but certainly not least Brett Miller will be throwing down his resilient style which will surely produce results.
It wouldn’t be fitting if PSL Moncton didn’t have entrants in each class Briggs class. Luckily the recruiting budget received significant funding this season. Jim Williamson will be a great fit to the team and is looking to push his CRG to the front. Rounding out the Masters class Mathieu Boudreau will be take years of track experience with him in his pursuit of the holy grail.
PSL Moncton looks forward to seeing everyone and encourages anyone to stop by the tent. Additionally, they would like to officially challenge anyone to a ruthless luge race.
