Red Sox must pony up nearly $12M US in luxury tax

Boston should be happy to pay this tax bill. The World Series champion Red Sox owe $11,951,091 US in luxury tax for having baseball’s top payroll, according to final calculations by the commissioner’s office obtained by The Associated Press. The only other team that owes is the Washington Nationals, who must pay $2,386,097, their second straight year with a bill. Because Boston was more than $40 million over the tax threshold, it became the first team to incur a new penalty put in place for the 2018 season: the top Red Sox selection in next June’s amateur draft will be

Return of baseball to Montreal looking ‘pretty good,’ says Stephen Bronfman

Efforts to bring a baseball team back to Montreal are moving forward, but the businessman spearheading that project is trying to temper expectations. Stephen Bronfman was careful when talking about the progress his group has made, but did say his group wants to build something that will last.  “We’re going to do everything in our power to make sure that this is sustainable, that this is real and that we’re in it to win it,” he told CBC Montreal’s Daybreak. On Thursday, the so-called Montreal Group released a report suggesting Montreal has everything required to support a major league baseball over the long-term. The Expos left town in 2004

Manchester & London on five-city ATP Finals shortlist

Highlights: Dominant Zverev beats Djokovic to win ATP Finals Manchester has joined current hosts London on a five-city shortlist to stage the ATP Finals from 2021. Singapore, Tokyo and Turin have also made the cut after more than 40 cities expressed an initial interest in hosting the season finale. Manchester lost out to the Chinese city of Shenzhen earlier this year in its attempt to host the WTA Finals – the women’s equivalent of the ATP Finals. A decision on the ATP Finals host will be made by March 2019 at the earliest. London has hosted the event since 2009

Chargers shock Chiefs with wild comeback to clinch playoff berth

Arrowhead Stadium was already emptying by the time Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers jogged to the locker room, triumphantly waving his hand as a satisfying cascade of boos washed over him. He had finally beaten the Kansas City Chiefs. It sounded perfect. Rivers led Los Angeles on a feverish fourth-quarter comeback Thursday night, capped by a debatable pass-interference call, a tense video review of the last touchdown and the gutsy decision to try a 2-point conversion. And for the first time in years against Kansas City, everything turned out perfectly for Rivers and the Chargers in a 29-28 victory that clinched

Tiger Woods: Phil Mickelson clash slammed by legend Greg Norman

‘The Match’, as it was billed, drew praise but also plenty of criticism as Mickelson walked off with the cool $9million (£7m) pay-out in the scrappy encounter. The double Open-winning Norman was asked whether he watched the Las Vegas showdown ahead of this week’s PNC Father-and-Son Challenge in Orlando. “Never watched it and besides I’d rather buy two shares of General Electric and invest those and have a long-term investment than pay $20 to watch,” said the 63-year old. But while the ‘Great White Shark’ was no fan of ‘The Match’ he is a fan of Tiger Woods acting as

Wimbledon expansion plans set to advance after golf club votes to sell

The home of Wimbledon was first established as the All England Croquet Club in July 1868 Wimbledon’s expansion plans have taken a step forward after a neighbouring golf club voted to sell its land. The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) made a £65m offer to buy the Wimbledon Park Golf Club land. AELTC says a vote has gone in its favour with the transfer – pending court approval – set to go through on 21 December. The deal will see AELTC’s land roughly triple in size. It means qualifying will be held on the site by the middle of
