(AP) The most heated debate at this week’s winter meetings hasn’t centered around Bryce Harper or Manny Machado’s next move. Instead, it’s centered around Harold Baines’ election to the Baseball Hall of Fame.The longtime Chicago White Sox slugger was surprisingly elected by the Today’s Game era committee on Sunday, where he joined closer Lee Smith as baseball’s newest Hall of Famers. Yet here we are, three days later, with opinions still flowing and emotions still running plenty high.That’s not just limited to the fans upset over Baines’ election. It also applies to the committee members responsible for pushing Baines through....

Selling Harper is no easy task for super agent Boras

Sports
LAS VEGAS — Let it be recorded that when Scott Boras made his annual winter meetings performance art Wednesday, this time to argue that Bryce Harper is such a great investment he “will pay for himself”, he stood not on a soap box but an equipment box for a Washington television station. It was an unintended master stroke for the Maestro of Metaphor.Boras brought to the media the argument he is trying to pitch to owners: that Harper is the rare ballplayer who not only puts up numbers, but also sells tickets, brings in viewers and enhances franchise value. Boras ascribed to Harper leaps made by the Washington Nationals in his years there in attendance (an increase of 600,000 from the season before Harper arrived to this season), viewership (from 25,000 households to 77,000 households, he said) and franchise value ($480 million to $2 billion, he said, though the current estimate is closer to $1.7 billion)....

Could Raiders end up in San Diego in 2019?

Sports
In less than two weeks, the NFL is going to have an awkward situation on its hands, and that's because the Raiders are officially going to be homeless.  The Raiders' lease with city of Oakland expires after the season, which means the Raiders might need to start looking for a new city to play in after their home finale against the Broncos on Christmas Eve. Although the Raiders have known all year that their lease would be expiring at the end of the 2018, no one seems to know where they're going to play next. So how did we get to this spot of total chaos, where an NFL team might be homeless? Great question. Here's three things to know about the Raiders' odd situation. 1. The situation in Oakland...

Suns owner threatens to move team to Seattle or Las Vegas

Sports
In 1992, the Suns committed to a 40-year lease at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, but the agreement included a provision for the team to opt out at 30 years if the building — one of the oldest in the NBA — is considered obsolete.That could allow the Suns to leave downtown Phoenix in 2022 if there's no new agreement.With a City Council vote on a $230 million renovation plan delayed, it has been revealed that Suns owner Robert Sarver has told some council members he might move the team to Seattle or Las Vegas.If the Suns leave, Phoenix would have to take over operations and maintenance of the building, and would still have to invest in significant infrastructure repairs if it wants to attract concerts and other events, according to the city. ...

Curry admits he was joking about moon landing, will visit NASA

Sports
So it appears that we've reached the end of the story arc about Steph Curry's moon landing comments. Earlier this week, Curry hopped on the Winging It Podcast and said that he didn't believe that the moon landing was real. Naturally, that soundbite was picked up and shared all over social media and any other medium that could possibly churn content out of it. However, as it turns out, Curry does not actually believe the conspiracy.Among the fallout surrounding Curry's comments was NASA offering to give Curry a free tour of one of their lunar labs so he can learn about the moon landing and even check out some of the rocks collected from the exploration.Curry and the Warriors head to Houston on March 13, which is the only time for the rest of the season the team will be in Houston for Curry to visit NASA....

10 NFL teams rising and falling ahead of the playoffs

Sports
We’re getting to the time of year when momentum starts to matter for potential NFL playoff teams. Bad losses can pile up and prove mentally taxing, while a winning streak breeds swagger and confidence. With the playoffs looming, every team is looking for a hefty dose of the latter to power them through the right time of the year.Whose stock is rising — and falling — at this pivotal time of the season? Here’s a look at ten teams.Rising: Dallas Cowboys (8-5)No team has done more for their playoff aspirations in less time than the Cowboys, who have won five in a row. The acquisition of Amari Cooper, widely derided at the time for the first-round pick they gave up, now looks like a masterstroke, with Cooper looking like the No. 1 wide receiver the Cowboys dreamed he’d be. An improving offense coupled with a strong defense that shut down the Saints means Dallas should be a force to be reckoned with in the NFC playoffs, just weeks after looking like they might not even make it to that point....

NFL will hold the 2020 draft in Las Vegas

Sports
Just a few years ago, Las Vegas would have been the last place you’d have ever imagined the NFL holding its draft. There would have been a better chance of having it on the moon.But with the Raiders moving to Las Vegas in 2020, with all that public stadium money that the NFL adores, the league is giving the draft to Sin City. The NFL announced Wednesday the 2020 draft will be in Las Vegas.And immediately, teams and agents are worrying about letting 21- and 22-year old college prospects loose in Vegas for draft weekend.While it makes sense on many levels to put the draft in Las Vegas, it’s just strange. The NFL has publicly denounced gambling at every chance, yet its marquee offseason event is going to the gambling capital of the United States....

NFL to play five international games next year

Sports
The NFL had plenty of issues internationally this season, but they’re still committed to the project.The league announced it would play five games in international markets this year, one in Mexico City and four more in London.While the schedule hasn’t been set yet, the league announced the home teams for those five games would be the Rams, Chargers, Raiders, Jaguars, and Buccaneers.This year’s Mexico City game was one of the league’s biggest flops, as the top-shelf matchup between the Chiefs and Rams had to be moved back to Los Angeles at the last minute because of shabby field conditions.But that wasn’t the only issue. The league planned for the Raiders and Seahawks to play in the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium this year, but that game had to be moved to Wembley because of construction delays at the new site. And with Tottenham playing home games at Wembley this year, the turf there has been less-than-ideal for both soccer and football purposes....

Brett Favre on coaching Packers: 'Never say never'

Sports
Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre said he's "not ready" to become an NFL coach and fill the vacancy for his former team. But the Hall of Famer kept the idea open long-term, saying he's "learned to never say never" on what the future might hold. "It's definitely interesting," Favre told TMZ Sports of the possibility of coaching the Packers. "But believe me, that's not going to happen. How can you not be intrigued by that? They would never offer, but even if they would, that's ... I'm not ready for that and neither are they."Mike McCarthy's 13-season run coaching the Packers ended earlier this month after he was fired following a loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Favre said that while he felt fulfilled from coaching high school football — the 49-year-old helped Oak Grove High School win a Mississippi state championship as offensive coordinator in 2013 — he's not ready for the big time commitment just yet. ...

Curry: Shaq 'dead wrong' on Lakers beating GSW
