One day after landing All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, the Toronto Blue Jays have acquired All-Star lefty David Price from Detroit for pitchers Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Jairo Labourt .

Beijing has been selected to host the 2022 Winter Olympics, becoming the first city awarded both the winter and summer games.

Beijing defeated Almaty, Kazakhstan, in a vote of the International Olympic Committee on Friday. The voting numbers were not immediately released.

The Chinese capital, which hosted the 2008 Summer Olympics, came in as the favorite. Despite a lack of natural snow and winter conditions, Beijing was seen by the IOC as a reliable and safe choice.

Almaty had hoped to bring the games to Central Asia for the first time and raise Kazakhstan's profile on the international stage.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and team owner Robert Kraft took the field at the Pats' first training camp practice yesterday to loud cheers despite "Deflategate." More than 10,000 fans sat in the sweltering sun to see the Super Bowl champions open the defense of their title.

New York Giants co-owner John Mara said yesterday that the team hasn't been allowed to examine Jason Pierre-Paul and has no idea when he will be able to play. Mara said most of the Giants' knowledge about Pierre-Paul's condition has come from his agents and through text messages with the 26-year-old. The Pro Bowl defensive end suffered severe hand injuries in a July 4 fireworks accident in Florida.


The New York Knicks have signed first-round draft picks Kristaps Porzingis and Jerian Grant. The 7-foot-3 Porzingis was the fourth overall selection in the recent draft and played professionally for Cajasol Seville in Spain the past three seasons. Grant was the 19th overall pick after averaging 14.6 points and 5.8 assists in four seasons with Notre Dame.

Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula says the last two losing seasons were big successes for the team. Pegula said Thursday that the success didn't show up in wins and losses but will show up in the future. Pegula made the comments during a panel discussion with his wife, Kim, as well as Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman on Thursday.

When asked whether success is measured differently for his sports business than his corporate enterprises, Pegula offered the example of the Sabres' recent struggles, which were celebrated by fans who wanted the team to "tank" for the first overall pick.

He says the seasons were "two of the most successful seasons we've ever had." Buffalo's boasted the league's worst record in each the seasons, allowing the club to select top prospects Sam Reinhart and Jack Eichel with the No. 2 overall picks in each of the last two drafts.
