ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Rays, Padres and Nationals finalized an 11-player trade Friday that sent 2013 AL Rookie of the Year Wil Myers from Tampa Bay to San Diego and outfielder Steven Souza Jr. from Washington to the Rays.The deal was announced two days after the Rays agreed to part with Myers in a move that president of baseball operations Matt Silverman said will make Tampa Bay more competitive for 2015 and beyond.Tampa Bay acquired five players. Catcher Rene Rivera, pitcher Burch Smith and minor league first baseman Jake Bauers come over from the Padres, and Souza and minor league pitcher Travis Ott from the Nationals.Myers, catcher Ryan Hanigan and minor league pitchers Jose Castillo and Gerardo Reyes were dealt to San Diego. Washington received minor league pitcher Joe Ross and a player to be named from the Padres.Trading Wil Myers was not an easy decision, but we are very excited about the talent coming back our way, and this deal has potential to improve our team on both sides of the ball, Silverman said.Myers, then Kansas Citys top prospect, was acquired by Tampa Bay in a trade that sent pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis to the Royals two years ago. He hit .293 with 13 homers and 53 RBIs in 88 games on the way to being selecting AL Rookie of the Year, then struggled in 2014 when a broken right wrist limited him to playing 87 games and batting .222 with six homers and 35 RBIs.Silverman said during last weeks winter meetings that he expected Myers to rebound with a big season. On Friday, he rejected the notion the Rays appeared to have given up on the 24-year-old slugger.This isnt about giving up on Wil Myers. This is about a trade to make this team better, the executive said, adding that Myers vast talent enabled the Rays to make a deal that can help the team both offensively and defensively.To clear room on the 40-man roster for Rivera, Smith and Souza, the Rays designated right-hander Brandon Gomes for assignment.Souza spent most of last season at Triple-A Syracuse, where he hit .350 with 18 homers, 75 RBIs and 26 stolen bases.The 25-year-old was a September call-up for the Nationals, best known for a sprinting, diving catch in left field for the final out of Jordan Zimmermanns no-hitter in the NL East champs regular-season finale.Souza did not make the teams post-season roster, however, he was expected to compete for a spot on the bench behind starters Bryce Harper, Jayson Werth and Denard Span next season.Silverman said the Rays have not decided where theyll play Souza, who has experience at all three outfield positions and third base.Hes an outfielder with tremendous talent, Silverman said. We expect him to be a mainstay in our lineup for years to come.Rivera, 31, batted .252 with 11 homers and 44 RBIs while making a career-high 85 starts at catcher for the Padres in 2014.Smith is a 24-year-old right-hander who was 15-11 with a 3.71 ERA in 48 appearances over parts of four minor league seasons. He spent 2014 with Triple-A El Paso, where he made two April starts before missing the remainder of the years with a forearm injury.Bauers, a 19-year-old prospect, hit .296 with eight homers and 64 RBIs in his first full pro season with Class-A Fort Wayne.Ott, also 19, split time between Class-A Auburn and Hagerstown last season, going 1-4 with a 3.993 ERA over 13 starts.

. And theyre pointing to the NHLs biggest market: Toronto. With Gretzky paid out for what is believed to be $7 to 8 million, Gretzky may be eager to get back into the NHL and TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reports that the Maple Leafs are very much interested in The Great Ones services.It was rare, if not entirely non-existent, to find an interview baiting an athlete to this level, and Romes dinkishness would usher forth a fresh era of callous reporting, culminating in Jim Grays inappropriately timed grilling of Pete Rose at the MLB All Star game in 1999:The challenge in scrutinizing the Rome/Everett clip is the conspiracy that looms over it. Long-standing doubts have been cast over the legitimacy of the participants intentions. Many have surmised that both Jim and Jim were in on the melee and the whole episode was rehearsed. If thats the case, it did no favours for either party, as Rome in particular struggled to book guests in the wake of the incident. Neither party has ever admitted to staging the fight, and the sentiments were likely real. Either way, Jim Rome was shoved viciously off a riser, so the clip has merit.#3 — Richard Sherman Dismantles Skip Bayless (2013)Even though the past decades increased brand-manicuring has brought forth ghost Twitter writers, interview coaches, and a heavy press release presence among athletes looking to make a statement, baiting and sparring between journalists and athletes continue. Before we get to the clip, lets refresh ourselves of Richard Sherman, the All Pro cornerback of the Seattle Seahawks, who is best known for another interview clip recorded just after this past seasons NFC Championship Game:Ooof, thats good stuff. The kind of interview that makes network executives request everyone stay late in the boardroom and order Chinese. But I fell in love with the good Mr. Sherman a year earlier, during his shredding of Skip "Not At The Top Of His Profession" Bayless:Skip Bayless got what he deserved. Was Sherman cocky, arrogant, quiver-lipped and mean? Sure. Hes an egotistical twenty-something millionaire football player who feels dissed. Skip is a self-serving foghorn and a comfort-of-the-news-desk trash talker who had been relentless in his dismissal of Shermans accomplishments (and this was before the Super Bowl ring). To the Sherman goes the Glory.#2 — The Practice, starring Allen Iverson (2002)Not every athlete takes the stage with a fall guy—sometimes they play that part themselves.dddddddddddd Allen Iverson, not long after winning the NBA Most Valuable Player award in 2001, notoriously did not like pushing himself in practice. Or attending practice. Here, at the podium, he gets heat for consistently skipping team practices, and decides to see if saying one word so many times can truly make it lose its meaning.A.I., even in his day, was undervalued. He is the greatest six-foot tall (or under) scorer in league history, and despite a propensity to forget he had teammates, averaged over six assists per game and led a team to the NBA Finals. He was also a wildly unpredictable man, with a raft of legal, financial, character and assault issues in his past (and present). It will take a special kind of talent to trump his accomplishment.#1 — Ron Artest | A Special Kind Of Talent (2010)I do not want to leave you feeling this collection of interviews is entirely geared to the glorification of scrapping or defensiveness or self-aggrandizing. Some athletes, like NBA All Star Ron Artest, win a big game and want nothing more than to spread the love around:A year after this interview, an entirely calm and well-adjusted Ron Artest would change his name to Metta World Peace, surprising no one.This mesmerizingly odd interview represented a momentous turnaround for the once-villainous Artest. Many criticized the Lakers letting go of an emerging Trevor Ariza after winning the championship in 2009, and replacing him with then 30-year-old Ron Artest, who came with a Himalayan range of baggage.In case you arent aware of, or have forgotten Metta World Artests history, this is why the above video stands as a bizarrely dichotomous moment, though you will likely still discern the thread of crazy running through both videos:>>> Gallays Poll #10Which interview is your favourite?(A) Jim vs. Jim, for the shoving(B) Iverson, for the comfort of repetition(C) Sherman, for the righteousness(D) Artest, for the sobering candour ' ' '
