MLB trade deadline: Dodgers and Giants among contenders adding star power

Craziness. So chaotic was this baseball trade deadline that it not only moved big names, including 10 All-Stars from this year alone, but it also changed the game. With the moves made by all the contenders, the team's decision makers will no longer be able to hide behind the excuse of saying, "Sometimes the best deals are the ones that don't get done."

Sitting on baseball's best magic carpet record of a season (the Giants have hit the most home runs and allowed the third fewest in the National League, compiling a 151-101 lead in home runs) San Francisco could have held. firm.

USWNT vs. Canada: Why the Olympic Soccer Semifinal Could Be Another Classic

It's been a while since we saw a women's soccer showdown between the United States and Canada in a major international competition. After both teams survived the quarter-finals on penalties, the Tokyo 2021 tournament draw has gifted us with the first Olympic qualifying match between the two neighbors since 2012. This game will have a place for the match for the gold medal as a prize for the winner. Those were the same risks at the London 2012 Olympics when a controversial goal by Alex Morgan in injury time decided a 4-3 game in favor of the United States moments before he headed to the penalty shoot-out. The Canadians have vowed to take their revenge for that result and Monday could be their best chance with the Americans proving that they are vulnerable in this tournament, winning ju...
