MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred , along with Indians owner Paul Dolan , released a joint statement explaining that the removal of Chief Wahoo is one that followed discussions between the team and the MLB itself. He later admitted that he was "bothered" by the Chief Wahoo logo. "If they acknowledge that 'the logo is no longer appropriate for on-field use in Major League Baseball, ' what's the excuse for waiting until 2019?" he tweeted . Read More »

Liverpool (2) West Bromwich Albion (1): FA Cup Match Reaction

perth_map

While West Brom's third goal, courtesy of Matip's error, did leave Liverpool with a mountain to climb in the second half, the defender was far from the sole culprit. We chased the game and maybe scored the second goal too late. "We had a hamstring (injury) just after so we are going to have to get our players to do a warm-up or keep them ticking over".

Brady practices without glove; Gronk returns to Patriots' practice

He wore full pads and a helmet, and his level of participation in the rest of practice is not known. Gronkowski is still in the concussion protocol after he was knocked out of the AFC Championship game January 21.

perth_map

Last week Swansea beat Liverpool 1-0 at Liberty Stadium . Sanches suffered a hamstring injury during the FA Cup fourth round draw at Notts County , and is a non-starter against the Gunners . A win against Arsenal could take Swansea as high as 17th, out of the relegation zone, assuming other results go their way. Swansea, although they are clear underdogs in this fixture, shouldn't be underestimated in this tie. Read More »

perth_map

Although Cilic dumped a backhand into the net on set point at 5-4, with Federer serving at 30/40, the Croatian regrouped and played decisively in the tie-break, finishing with a composed smash victor. Cilic, who beat Federer en route to his only Grand Slam title at the 2014 US Open, pushed his all the way, but Federer held firm to the end. Greg Rusedski, writing on Twitter, called the decision "absolutely ridiculous", pointing out that the Grand Slam tournaments are meant to be outdoor ... Read More »

He put up a great fight in the second set, often outshadowing Federer in attacking play and it paid great dividends as he won the set 7-6 in a tie-break. Read More »

Royals' trade Moss, Ryan for two pitchers

perth_map

Buchter had a promising 2017 season and had the potential to be one of the best relievers in the Royals bullpen this season. To be clear here: $5 million and a hole in the depth chart doesn't mean a Hosmer deal is imminent. Buchter joined the Royals shortly before the trade deadline, coming as part of the deal that brought Trevor Cahill to Kansas City. Fillmyer, 23, threw 149 2/3 innings with a 3.49 ERA at Double-A last season. Read More »

Michy Batshuayi in high spirits after Chelsea brace despite talk of exit

Against Newcastle , there was an element of confidence to his game that has been missing previously and his man of the match plaudits were well justified. At the age of 30, he might not be a long-term option for the Blues but he is definitely someone who can share the scoring burden with Alvaro Morata . Read More »

Russell Westbrook stares down Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons

perth_map

Westbrook plays every second of the game as if his family is being held hostage and their lives depend on his performance. In 39 games this season, he averaged 5.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.15. If there's any critique, it's that he should probably shoot more than seven times in the second half of a close game. Embiid posted a picture of himself dunking all over Westbrook on Instagram about an hour after the game had concluded, and tagged a very perculiar location . Read More »

perth_map

The Arsenal boss's first task will be to restore Mkhitaryan's confidence after the player found himself frequently sidelined under United manager Jose Mourinho . It might be a case of attack vs defence, which proved to be very successful for the Swans against Jurgen Klopp's attacking Liverpool outlet.

Broncos CB Talib may be on trading block

perth_map

There is no arguing with what Talib has done since entering the National Football League in 2008. We hate Aqib Talib trade rumors as much as anyone, but the reality is, it might actually happen. Second, Talib's contract is very interesting in that, while it's a little on the expensive side in 2018 ($12 million cap hit) it is substantially cheaper in 2019, dropping to $8 million, and with no dead money.

Champions League rivals such as Barcelona, Real Madrid, PSG and Bayern Munich have all been able to recharge their batteries thanks to midwinter ... Read More »

So, by default the most interesting topic of discussion for players such as Bell, Brown, and Big Ben is what kind of celebrations they will break into during the Pro Bowl .

Jurgen Klopp has insisted Philippe Coutinho will not be replaced in January as he does not believe the "solution" is available on the transfer market. Despite the German manager claiming Coutinho would not have helped them in their two recent losses, Liverpool's decision not to adequately replace the 25-year-old in the current transfer window could come back to haunt the club if their form does not turn around.
