Talks between the Orioles and free agent pitcher Yovani Gallardo about a three-year contract are gaining momentum, says a baseball source. The two sides still have to make some "tweaks" to push the deal across the finish line, the source said. The Orioles would surrender a first-round draft pick if they sign Gallardo, who received a qualifying offer from the Rangers in November.

Mavs enter All-Star break in miserable fashion

"How'd we lose the game?" the Mavs wondered after blowing a 15-point lead and letting Utah hit shots on its last possessions of regulation and OT.

Wesley Matthews on sitting significant stretches of crunch time in the last two games: "Yeah, I was frustrated. I've never been taken out of a game in crunch time. I haven't. That's new to me. I've always been especially a crunch-time player, so I don't know. It is what it is. I control what I can control. & I want to win games. I want to win games. I know I can be on the court to do that, but if that's his decision not to have me out there, that's his decision. I've got to be a team player, be a man about it, be professional about it and cheer my ass off and be ready." Matthews, who signed a four-year, $70 million max deal with Dallas this summer, ranks second in the NBA in clutch plus-minus (plus-81) behind only teammate Dirk Nowitzki but was replaced by Raymond Felton down the stretch in an overtime win over the Grizzlies and overtime loss to the Jazz.
