The Yankees have to return some World Series money

CNBC’s Darren Rovell:

Sources told CNBC that Yankees players recently
received a letter from the Major League Baseball Players Association
that informed them that there was mistake in the calculation of the
World Series championship share . . . the letter told those who had full shares that three people (two
trainers and a player) were not allocated their proper share. The
result? Those who received full shares are now being asked to pay back
approximately $10,000 each.

I blame A-Rod. As I often say, he’s cheated the
game, cheated the fans, cheated himself and cheated whoever it is who calculates World Series shares.  He’s history’s greatest monster, really.

The Orioles and Dodgers are expected to finally complete involving SS/3B Manny Machado, ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports. The Orioles will receive five prospects from the Dodgers. We’ll have more details about the other players involved later.

Machado, 26, is in the final year of his contract, so this is currently a rental for the first-place Dodgers. Machado ended the first half batting .315/.387/.575 with 24 home runs, 65 RBI, 48 runs scored, and eight stolen bases in 413 plate appearances. In Los Angeles, he will handle shortstop, allowing Chris Taylor to move over to second base.
