At RedsFest on Saturday, Price said: I’d say right now that we have a series of guys that I’m comfortable with in the ninth inning and that would include (Raisel) Iglesias, (Tony) Cingrani and (Michael Lorenzen). Should we stay with this format – which I intend to do – all three of those guys and maybe more could have opportunities in save situations. At this point in time, there’s no defined closer.

    Here is what you need to know from around the NBA Sunday, in case you were busy dodging Santas on the ski slopes… 1) Russell Westbrook enters Jordan territory with fifth straight triple-double — and Thunder keep winning. “”I am truly a fan of his… when I watch him play, I see a lot of resemblance of his passion for the game of basketball [to] the way I played the game of basketball.” That was Michael Jordan last month describing Russell Westbrook as he introduced Westbrook for the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame. Now Westbrook is entering The Jordan Zone — Sunday night he recorded his fifth straight triple-double with 28 points, 17 rebounds, and 12 assists. The last guy to record five-straight triple-doubles?

Rosberg edged out Hamilton for the F1 drivers’ championship in Abu Dhabi last Sunday before sensationally announcing his immediate retirement from the sport five days later. Mercedes has said it will take its time when looking for a replacement for Rosberg, with the majority of the F1 grid tied up contractually for 2017. Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel have both been linked with the Mercedes drive in the wake of Rosberg’s departure, leading to questions about whether Hamilton would want another big-name star alongside him.

  • Mets hope to deal Bruce for reliever, could wind up with prospects instead

    According to ESPN.com's Buster Olney, Mets GM Sandy Alderson hopes to trade OF Jay Bruce for a reliever during this week's MLB Winter Meetings in Washington, DC. However, there is more belief that the Mets will get prospects in return for either Bruce or Curtis Granderson than a player who is expected to contribute in 2017, reports Mike Puma of the NY Post. For instance, the Orioles recently rejected Alderson's efforts to trade Bruce for a high-end reliever, sources recently told ESPN's Adam Rubin. Unfortunately for Alderson, as of last week, teams looking to acquire an outfielder were more interested in Granderson than Bruce, according to Newsday's Marc Carig. In either case, the Mets are in

  • Report: The Nationals are still in on Chris Sale and Andrew McCutchen

    The Nationals are trying to go big this offseason, and FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal notes that they are still in trade talks for White Sox’ left-hander Chris Sale and Pirates’ center fielder Andrew McCutchen. Both players figure to command a big return, as Sale delivered another Cy Young-worthy performance in 2016 and, despite a downturn in his production rate, McCutchen is still one of the more coveted sluggers in the National League. In 2016, Sale led the league in complete games, with six, and turned in a 3.34 ERA and 5.2 fWAR in 226 2/3 innings. While teams have been sniffing around the White Sox’ ace since the trade deadline, the club is expected to maintain a high asking price — so high, said FanRag
