    Yankees get Headley from Padres

    The Yankees acquired veteran third baseman Chase Headley for infielder Yangervis Solarte and pitching prospect Rafael De Paula, sources said. The Padres will send $1 million to pay the roughly $4M million left on Headley’s $10.53M 2014 salary. He is a free agent after the year. The Yankees, in need of infield help, have been scouting Headley, who’s looked better recently since getting shots to quell a back issue. Headley is still having an atypical season, showing far less power than usual. Toronto was thought to be the only other team in the mix for Headley. Headley’s value has slipped as he’s approached free agency, and…

    Rory Wins Claret Jug

    It wasn’t quite the stroll in the park Rory McIlroy would have liked but in the end the Ulsterman was able to cruise to the 2014 Claret Jug with a final-round 71 to win by two. When he started it looked like this major would look like his other two — that is, complete and total routs. McIlroy birdied the first to go up seven strokes on Rickie Fowler but then made two bogeys in his next five holes to open the door. And wouldn’t you know it, our old friend Sergio Garcia strolled right on through. See more from…

    LeBron’s Going Home

    LeBron James is going back to Cleveland, agreeing to join the Cavaliers franchise that drafted him in 2003, he announced in a story on Sports Illustrated. Four years and three days after The Decision aired, James is leaving the Miami Heat, choosing to join an up-and-coming Cleveland team rather than stick with the one that has been to the NBA Finals every year since he arrived. When I left Cleveland, I was on a mission. I was seeking championships, and we won two. But Miami already knew that feeling. Our city hasn’t had that feeling in a long, long, long time. My goal is still…
