If the Blue Jays actually get David Price then Alex Anthopoulus will edge out Dayton Moore for best acquisitions by a contender at deadline

Kurkjian: David Price will be traded

ESPN's Tim Kurkjian on SportsCenter: "I would be shocked if he isn't moved before 4 p.m. ET tomorrow. Right now, it seems like it could be Toronto. ... [The Blue Jays] have not been to the playoffs since 1993. They got people excited last year and again this year." But Kurkjian said that the Astros, Dodgers and Yankees all remain in the hunt.

Opener just got more interesting for Buckeyes. Top defender, invaluable offensive weapon on shelf against a team that beat them a year ago.

Ohio State football suspends 4 players

Junior defensive end Joey Bosa, sophomore H-back Jalin Marshall, senior receiver Corey Smith and junior H-back Dontre Wilson will miss the Buckeyes' first game of the season, Sept. 7 at Virginia Tech, for violating department policy, according to the school's AD office. No further reason for the suspension was given.

The deal that was, then wasn't

Around 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Mets SS Wilmer Flores and RHP Zack Wheeler were reportedly on their way to Milwaukee in exchange for OF Carlos Gomez. But by 11 p.m. ET, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said the trade "has not and will not transpire." Wait, what?

Marlins cause a stink

The Nationals got a surprise when they hit the field at Marlins Park for batting practice and their soundtrack was replaced by fart noises. Really. Is this a case of whoever smelt it dealt it?

What is haggis?

According to some players at this week's Women's British Open: It's "an acquired taste," but "I have not tried it and I will not try it," however, "you deep fry anything and put a batter on it. I'm sure it's delicious."


Mike Reiss @MikeReiss

Rob Gronkowski looks like he picked up where he left off in '14. A tough cover, as always, catching TDs in red zone from Brady and Garoppolo

Tim Tebow apparently loves leg day

And his technique is odd. Or genius? You decide.


Terry Collins: I didn't know about trade

Said the Mets manager: "Somebody came to me and said Wilmer's crying. I said, 'Why?' 'Well he got traded.' 'To who? For what?' ... There was nothing I knew about it."
