Report: 'Phillies 'intensify' pursuit of Cody Ross

The Red Sox signed Shane Victorino to man right field next season, but Cody Ross still out there on the free agent market.

His market is reportedly starting to heat up.

According to Ken Rosenthal, the Phillies are "intensifying" their efforts to bring the former Red Sox outfielder to Philadelphia.  He has also been courted by Seattle this offseason.

The 32-year-old hit .267 with 22 home runs and 81 RBI last season for the Red Sox.

NFL owners release statements on Trump comments

President Donald Trump's comments about NFL players and his tweeted dis-invite of the Warriors led to some prominent athletes to speak out. Now NFL franchises and their owners are weighing in.

At a rally in Alabama on Friday night, Trump said NFL owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem. And he encouraged NFL fans to walk out of games in protest. 

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ’Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump told the rally. 

He also lamented that football has become less violent.

“They’re ruining the game,” he complained.
