When Aledmys Diaz flied out with a runner on first to end Game 7 of the AL Championship Series, the bad guys finally lost.
Former Canterbury duo Jayden Okunbor and Corey Harawira-Naera have successfully appealed their NRL de-registrations and could play again this year.
Okunbor and Harawira-Naera were de-registered earlier this year following a schoolgirl sex scandal in Port Macquarie in March.
The league on Monday announced an alternative sanction, with Okunbor banned for 14 games and Harawira-Naera suspended for 10.
Okunbor has also been fined $22,500 and ordered to undergo a counseling or community service, while Harawira-Naera has been fined $15,000.
“The NRL took the action which it considered necessary given the serious breaches of the code of conduct – breaches the appeals committee also found to be serious,” NRL acting chief executive Andrew Abdo said.
“The independent appeals committee has taken a different view on what penalty the players should face and although we are disappointed, we respect the outcome.”
Four-star center Frank Anselem has officially chosen his new home, and it won’t be in the state of Kentucky. The big man is taking his talents to Syracuse University to play for the Orange and head coach Jim Boeheim.
The 6-foot-10, 220 pound center is currently listed as the No. 142 player in the nation, the No. 23 center and the No. 16 player in Georgia, according to 247Sports. Anselem is tabbed as a four-star recruit.
B.J. Armstrong might have played a role in the Chicago Bulls getting their 1996, 1997 and 1998 titles — even though he wasn’t on those teams.
Armstrong was the person who, at a breakfast chat over pancakes in Chicago, nudged Michael Jordan to stop by the Bulls’ practice facility one morning late in the 1994-95 season to go see his old teammates. Before long, Jordan ended his retirement; the Bulls won three more titles in Jordan’s second stint with the franchise.
Jordan’s first retirement in 1993, the murder of his father James, his stint in minor league baseball and — after a gentle push by Armstrong, who takes no credit for Jordan’s return — his comeback were among the themes in the latest installments of the ESPN and Netflix documentary “The Last Dance,” a 10-part series that showed episodes seven and eight on Sunday night.
SAN DIEGO — A widely expected reunion materialized on Monday, the first day of baseball’s annual winter meetings: Stephen Strasburg, the World Series M.V.P. who had become a free agent, re-signed with the Washington Nationals.
Strasburg had exercised the opt-out of his previous contract with the Nationals, forfeiting a guaranteed $100 million over four years only to replace it with an eye-popping new deal that will pay him $245 million over seven years.
The deal broke two records: It is the most expensive contract ever given to a pitcher (beating David Price’s seven-year, $217 million deal from 2015), and it contains the highest average annual value for a pitcher (topping Zack Greinke’s $34.4 million a year, also from 2015).
Those marks might not last long, however.
