Blue-chip light heavyweight prospect Oleksandr Gvozdyk has been added to the HBO PPV card headlined by the junior welterweight world title unification bout between Terence Crawford and Viktor Postol on July 23 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Top Rank announced on Friday. Stitched Giants Jerseys .Gvozdyk (10-0, 10 KOs), a 2012 Olympic bronze medalist from Ukraine and one of the top prospects in boxing, will take on Tommy Karpency in a scheduled 10-round bout.Gvozdyk, 29, was supposed to box Robert Berridge in an untelevised bout on Top Ranks card on July 16 in Lancaster, California, but he was moved to the pay-per-view card a week later against Karpency, a better-caliber opponent than Berridge.The opening on the pay-per-view telecast came about because super middleweight titlist Gilberto Zurdo Ramirez tore the tendon around the knuckle of his middle finger on his right hand during a sparring session on Tuesday, forcing his first defense against Dominik Britsch to be canceled. That fight was supposed to be the co-feature on the July 23 card.So the vacant featherweight world title bout between Oscar Valdez (19-0, 17 KOs) and Matias Adrian Rueda (26-0, 23 KOs) was elevated to the co-feature position, welterweights Jose Benavidez Jr. (24-0, 16 KOs) and Francisco Chia Santana (24-4-1, 12 KOs) will meet in a 10-rounder and Gvozdyk-Karpency will open the broadcast.Karpency, a 30-year-old southpaw from Adah, Pennsylvania, has faced several quality opponents, including in a pair of light heavyweight world title bouts. Two fights ago, last September, Karpency got knocked out in the third round by world champion Adonis Stevenson, and in 2012 he lost a shutout decision to then-titleholder Nathan Cleverly.In October 2014, Karpency scored the biggest win of his career, a 10-round split decision in a major upset against faded former light heavyweight world champion Chad Dawson.Top Rank wants to measure Gvozdyks performance against how Karpency (26-5-1, 15 KOs) did with other quality opponents while also getting him his first major television exposure.My matchmakers say this is a real test for Gvozdyk, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum told ESPN.com. Karpency was the best opponent we could get on short notice, but we were told he was training for another fight. So this is a good test for Gvozdyk to prove to us that he is as good as we think he is.Ramirez (34-0, 24 KOs), meantime, underwent what Top Rank and adviser Sean Gibbons termed successful surgery to repair his torn tendon on Friday in Los Angeles. According to surgeon Dr. Steven Shin, Ramirez is expected to be out of action for five months. San Francisco Giants Gear .

SAO PAULO, Brazil -- Max Verstappen says new rules about how drivers are allowed to defend position have removed the art of defending position from Formula One. Custom Cincinnati Reds Jerseys .Verstappen was criticised by fellow drivers for a series of robust defences this year in which he moved under braking while another car was trying to pass. At the U.S. Grand Prix, FIA race director Charlie Whiting introduced a new interpretation of an existing rule to outlaw moving under braking and Sebastian Vettel became the first driver to fall foul of the regulation at the Mexican Grand Prix a week later.That it is just a very complex rule, I think. It is just very difficult, he said. Before there was an art in defending and overtaking, but the defending bit has gone because you cant do anything. You cant defend, basically, thats my feeling.Ferrari is appealing the Vettels Mexico penalty, but Verstappen says the rule has to be obeyed as long as it is in the regulations.So of course they thought it was not right so they tried to appeal it but its clearly in the rules that you cant do it anymore so everybody of course has to follow the rules.The 19-year-olds driving has come under intense scrutiny this year, but Verstappen, who has not been involved in any major collisions with other drivers this season, remains unflustered.I think in general not only in Formula One but just in a lot of sports, when younger people come in and they do well theres always a bit of talk going on, I think thats pretty normal. So I dont see it as a big issue, to be honest. Cincinnati Reds Pro Shop . Ivanovic was leading 7-5, 1-0 when Hantuchova withdrew after falling 0-40 behind in the second game.

FORT HOOD, Texas -- Al Freeman appreciated a second chance to play in front of the soldiers and their families at Fort Hood.The Baylor guard showed it with his best game of the season.Freeman scored a season-high 19 points and made a career-best five 3-pointers and the fourth-ranked Bears returned to the sprawling Army post about an hours drive south of their Waco campus with an 82-57 victory over Jackson State on Saturday night.A year ago, Freeman scored 12 points in a 104-59 rout of Division III Hardin-Simmons. This time he was 5 of 8 from long range in the first game featuring a pair of Division I teams at Fort Hood, one of the nations largest Army posts covering about 340 square miles and housing more than 40,000 soldiers.I know that this is the first time some of the soldiers have seen their families in 18 months, 24 months, however long they had their tours, Freeman said. Its a really cool experience to be the center focus of why they come back and the center focus of them, like, seeing their family again, to be the entertainment for them and their family for the night.The setup was similar to a year ago, with a slightly larger and near-capacity crowd at 2,400-seat Abrams Gym, which has a large American flag on the wall behind the benches opposite the only permanent set of stands.And just like a year ago, Baylor players signed autographs after the game at one end of what looks like a high school gym except for the larger space behind each basket. The Bears enjoyed last years thank you and wanted to do it again .I think everyone feels the same way, especially around the holidays when we get to go home to family and friends and so many of them dont get to see loved ones because theyre out protecting our freedom, coach Scott Drew said.Baylors Jo Lual-Acuil had a season-high 17 points with six rebounds and five blocks -- slightly better than his 4.3-block average that ranks second nationally. The Bears are 10-0 for the first time since starting 17-0 in 2011-12.Edric Dennis scored 21 points for Jackson State (3-8), which stayed close until a 24-6 Baylor run that started late in the first half and ended with the Bears up 58-38 with about 12 minutes remaining.Jackson States Sherron Wilson was ejected for flagrant foul that sent Johnathan Motley sprawling to the floor midway through second half, not long after Derek Roscoe was given a technical for saying somethiing to Terry Maston after blocking Mastons shot. Fake Reds Jerseys. Wilsons foul was the third technical in about 5 minutes for the Tigers.This is the most frustrating part of our season because weve have three season-ending injuries to three starters, Jackson State coach Wayne Brent said. So right were just trying to scratch and claw. Even with our other guys, were still short-handed because theyve got such good talent.PUTTING ON A CLINICFor the second straight year, Drew and his staff conducted a clinic for the kids of soldiers about a week before the game. I love the clinic, coming down here and helping kids because dads that cant be here to work them out because theyre deployed, Drew said. To know that their 6-year-old, 8-year-old, had a good chance to run around with the ball and get out of moms hair for an hour is probably a good thing.SPECIAL MOMENTJackson State guard Paris Collins briefly lived at Fort Hood while his dad spent time there. He dad was in the Air Force for 22 years. It was a dream playing for my dad tonight, said Collins, the other double-figure scorer for the Tigers with 16 points. Hes done so much for me. I had `Pop coming to watch me, you know what Im saying. It was a blessing for him to be here.BIG PICTUREJackson State: The three Brent referred to that are out for the year are guard Chace Franklin (shoulder), Treshawn Bolden (broken foot) and Charles Taylor (knee). The Tigers had to feel a boost by the way they played without three starters in the first half.Baylor: The Bears were a little flat after taking a big early lead against another SWAC opponent in Southern earlier in the week. But Baylor looked like a team with three wins over Top 10 teams in a 10-minute stretch that started late in the first half.UP NEXTJackson State: Tigers visit Duquesne on Monday, take an 11-day break before playing Fisk at home Dec. 30 and open SWAC play at Alabama State on Jan. 2.Baylor: Bears have rare case of playing on consecutive days in different facilities, with a game at home Sunday against John Brown. Theres just one nonconference game left after that Wednesday at home against Texas Southern before the Big 12 opener Dec. 30 at Oklahoma.---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 ' ' ' 
NEW YORK -- One by one, for three weeks already, players accompanied by their lawyers have been summoned to interviews as part of baseballs latest investigation into performance-enhancing drugs -- and the process is a long way from finished. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Thunder Jersey . Some pretty big names, led by Alex Rodriguez, could be on the hot seat. A-Rod, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon are among the 20 or so players who may be disciplined for their links to the now-closed Miami anti-aging clinic, Biogenesis of America. The players union says it has been assured no decisions regarding discipline will be made until the interviews are completed. "It would be unfortunate if anyone prejudged those investigations," union head Michael Weiner said in a statement Wednesday. And it appears the process has a while to run. Interviews with players started three weeks ago and are scheduled until the end of June, according to people with knowledge of the process who spoke on condition of anonymity because statements on those details werent authorized. Dan Halem, Steven Gonzalez and Patrick Houlihan, lawyers in baseballs labour relations department, conducted several interviews, and some players havent been scheduled. "Every player has been or will be represented by an attorney from the players association," Weiner said. "The players association has every interest in both defending the rights of players and in defending the integrity of our joint (drug) program. We trust that the commissioners office shares these interests." MLB has been seeking the co-operation of Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch since Miami New Times reported in January that it obtained what the paper said were records detailing drug purchases by Rodriguez, Cabrera, Cruz and Colon. Yahoo Sports reported that Braun, the 2011 NL MVP, was mentioned in the records. MLB sued Biogenesis and its operators in a Florida court in March, an attempt to pressure Bosch. A person familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Tuesday night that Bosch agreed to talk to MLB, a deal first reported by ESPN. MLB wants to speak with Bosch in the next few days, "Due to ongoing litigation, it would be inappropriate to comment on any aspect of this matter at this time," Boschs lawyer, Susy Ribero-Ayala, said in a statement. Among the players linked to the clinic, Cabrera, Colon and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal already have served 50-game suspensions following positive tests for testosterone announced by MLB last year. "It looks like it could be getting to the bottom of this and finding some information that hopefully would help Major League Baseball as far as cleaning this game up," said San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy, who managed Cabrera last year. "I always thought they should be a little stricter to keep these players from trying to beat the system and cheat. Im all for stiffer penalties." Once MLB interviews Bosch and the players, it will have to determine what penalties to impose. "WADA commends the decision of Major League Baseball to seek suspension of an estimated 20 players," World Anti-Doping Agency Director General David Howman said in a statement. "More and more, information and evidence gathered in the investigative process is proving an effective means of uncovering doping in sport. MLB has approached this issue in a professional way, and the evidence gathered will undoubtedly be pivotal," Howman said. Any suspensions for first offenders would be put on hold if the union files a grievance, a process that would put the matter in front of an arbitrator and delay possible sanctions for weeks or months. Second offenders would serve suspensions during the grievance process. Baseballs drug agreement calls for a 50-game suspension for a first violation, 100 for a second and a lifetime ban for a third for positive tests for banned PEDS or their use or possession. The agreement also allows discipline for "just cause" for a violation not specified. Any player disciplined could file an individual grievance, and it isnt likely that cases would be combined into one proceeding. If Bosch testifies at a hearing, he would be subject to cross-examination, and players lawyers likely would try to attack his credibility. The Florida Department of Health sent Bosch an unlicensed activity citation on April 25, accusing him of practicing medicine without a license from 2009 through 2012 and asking him to sign a "cease and desist agreement." That action was first reported by the New York Daily News on May 6. Most players have denied the Biogenesis link either directly or through spokesmen or lawyers. Rodriguez admitted in 2009 that he used performance-enhancing drugs while with the Texas Rangers from 2001-03. As baseballs highest-paid player with a $28 million salary this year, he would lose $7.65 million during a 50-game ban. Rodriguez, who turns 38 next month, has not played since hip surgery in January and is not expected to be available to the New York Yankees until after the All-Star break. The third baseman, a three-time AL MVP, has been working out since May at the teams minor league complex in Tampa, Fla., and he drove past reporters without stopping when he arrived and left three hours later Wednesday after batting practice, fielding and agility drills. A-Rod drove a black Chevrolet SUV rather than the black Maybach he usually arrives in In addition to Rodriguez, Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli was linked to the clinic. Cervelli, currently on the DL because of a broken hand, said he consulted Biogenesis for a foot injury, but didnt receive any treatment. "My focus is not on what MLB is investigating. I dont want to get caught up in that," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "My job is to manage the guys in the clubhouse." Girardi said the Yankees still planned for Rodriguez to rejoin the team after the All-Star break. Asked what he would do if A-Rod were suspended 100 games, Girardi responded: "Well cross that bridge." Brauns 50-game suspension for a positive test was overturned by an arbitrator in February 2012 after the union filed a grievance and challenged the handling of his urine sample. Braun has acknowledged he was mentioned in Biogenesis records because his lawyers used Bosch as a consultant during the grievance. After the Brewers 4-3, 10-inning win over Oakland at Miller Park on Tuesday night, the 2011 NL MVP said he was finished talking about the clinic. "Ive already addressed everything related to the Miami situation. I addressed it in spring training. I will not make any further statements about it," he said. "The truth has not changed." Braun said the speculation hasnt affected him on the field. "No, of course not. Ive dealt with this for two years now. Im pretty good at avoiding distractions," he said.

England should start James Milner and Daniel Sturridge at Euro 2016, says Peter Reid. Nike Air Max 98 Australia . Reid, who won 13 caps for England between 1985 and 1988, has picked his ideal starting line-up as England prepare to kick off the tournament against Russia in Marseille on June 11. Sky Sports Euro 2016 predictor Make your predictions with our interactive wall chart here. With great debate over who should start for England and the formation they should deploy, Reid told Sky Sports News HQ he would include the Liverpool duo of midfielder Milner and striker Sturridge in a 4-2-3-1 formation. He said: I would go with Hart in goal. Across the back its going to be Walker, Smalling, Cahill and Rose. England manager Roy Hodgson says he almost knows his starting XI for the start of Euro 2016. What Id do in the middle of the park, Id go with two holding midfielders. Id go with Milner - hes a consistent type of player who doesnt give the ball away - and Dier.The three in front of him, Dele Alli has got to play on the left side for me because hes been outstanding. Rooney Id play in there, in terms of going forward, but as he showed in the FA Cup final [against Crystal Palace] he goes back and makes tackles.On the right side, if hes fit, Ive seen him play plenty in this position, Id go with Sturridge. Hes another one with pace who can get a goal.Up front Im sorry to say Vardy would miss out and Id go with Kane but weve got a lot of exciting and talented players on the bench. Reid would have Wayne Rooney [L] and James Milner [R] in his England line-up Although Reid is positive about the England team going forward, he does have concerns over the defence, which is why he believes Roy Hodgson should set his team up with two holding midfielders.The team worries me defensively, he said. I would have two so-called holding midfielders in there but we would have to tighten up defensively. Reid made 13 appearances for England In this squad I do see goals and we have Vardy, who can come on and get a goal. Hes been absolutely outstanding. We have Sterling, Lallana and Henderson as well so we have got talent in there.

He scored a goal and was one of the best players on the field, constantly creating opportunities despite being harassed by Colombian players nearly every time he touched the ball.He took a beating but he still helped the team a lot, Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus said. Everybody knows he is a star. He is crucial for us.Neymar impressed with his talent and his toughness, the type of performance that Brazilian fans had been expecting since the beginning of the Olympics.Neymar gave a very positive response, Brazil Olympic coach Rogerio Micale said. He was provoked almost the entire first half but he didnt let that get to him. He behaved well as the teams captain.The Barcelona player lost his cool once before halftime, committing a hard foul on a Colombian player with a tackle that led to a bench-clearing brawl. The play ignited fans at the Arena Corinthians, but he left himself in danger of being sent off.It was the only thing. He came in harder, just like they were doing, and received the yellow card, Micale said. After that, he kept his calm.Despite being the tournaments top player, Neymar had disappointed in the first two games with Brazil, when the title-favorites were held to scoreless draws by South Africa and Iraq. He was being loudly criticized by fans and local media, who said he lacked leadership and wasnt worth being Brazils captain. Air Max 270 Mens Sale Australia. .A photo of a Brazil jersey with Neymars name scratched off and replaced with Martas name went viral, and supporters heckled him by chanting the womens stars name during games.With the team in danger of another embarrassing home elimination two years after the demoralizing 7-1 loss to Germany at the World Cup, Neymar finally took over in the must-win game against Denmark, setting up two goals in the 4-0 victory.On Saturday, he kept alive Brazils hopes of winning the soccer gold for the first time by scoring from a free kick in the 12th minute. He controlled the pace for Brazil throughout the match despite being provoked by Colombian players.Neymar is very experienced, he helped us a lot, said Luan, who scored the other goal against Colombia in the quarterfinals. He controlled the game and overcame the pressure. He was crucial in our victory.Neymar is only 24 but is one of the teams most experienced players. He skipped the Copa America earlier this year so he could play in the Olympics to try to give Brazil the unprecedented gold, which is the only significant trophy Brazil hasnt won in soccer. Neymar was in the team that lost the 2012 Olympic final to Mexico in London.Brazil will play Honduras in Wednesdays semifinals at the Maracana Stadium, which will be the teams first game in Rio de Janeiro.

Baylor is looking to start 5-0 overall and 2-0 in the Big 12 Conference for the fourth straight season when the 13th-ranked Bears travel to Iowa State on Saturday afternoon. Scarpe Air Max Flair Scontate .At first glance, it would seem Baylor should have nothing to worry about. The Bears opened as 17-point favorites and are playing a 1/3 Cyclones squad that lost at home to an FCS school, Northern Iowa (25-20), and was blown out by both Iowa (42-3) and TCU (41-20) before finally breaking through with a 44-10 home win over lowly San Jose State last week.But this is the first Big 12 road contest for the Bears, who have lost two of the last three times they have visited Jack Trice Stadium.Its always tough going to Iowa State, Baylor quarterback Seth Russell told the Waco Tribune. They have great fans and a great turnout every year. They have a grass field and we dont play on a grass field a whole lot, so it will be a little different.Baylor lost on its first two trips to Ames, Iowa, under former head coach Art Briles before finally breaking through for a 49-28 win in 2014. A sellout crowd of over 50,000 is expected. The Bears have played just one nonconference road game, defeating Rice 38-10, before a turnout of just 27,047 at Rice Stadium, and the atmosphere figures to be much louder on Saturday.The Bears remain the only unbeaten team in the Big 12, and they showed they could keep that distinction despite a huge step up in competition against Oklahoma State last Saturday night.Baylor defeated the Cowboys 35-24 and did so with the same swagger that made the Bears contenders in the Big 12 the last three seasons. Baylor gave up yards, but held Oklahoma State out of the end zone at crucial moments.On offense, Baylor showed versatility in its passing game. Russell threw an 89-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Chris Platt in the third quarter. Then in the fourth, Russell deftly led a 99-yard scoring drive during which he passed for 104 yards.I was happy that our players got challenged and bowed their necks a little bit and did what they needed to do, especially down the stretch to get a win, Baylor interim coach Jim Grobe said.On the surface, the Bears seem to be handling this strange year with remarkable dexterity.Grobe replaced Art Briles after Briles was fired in May for his part in Baylors Title IX failings the past few years. As interim, Grobe has done his job of smiling after wins and offering up the usual head coach quotes.But he doesnt seem to have much control over the team. It appears the Baylor assistant coaches, all holdovers from Briless staff, are running the show.When Baylor faced a fourth-and-1 from its own 24 late in the third quarter versus Oklahoma State, Grobe called for a punt. He was either not heard or ignored depending on how one deciphers a quote from Grobes Monday press conference.Initially, Grobe said in his postgame presser that his headset was inadvertently muted. But he said on Monday that wasnt the case.To be honest with you, when I said I didnt have the switch turned on, I wasnt sure, Grobe said on Monday. I asked (offensive coordinator Kendal Briles), Did you hear me say punt the football? He said, No coach. You said punt the football. Weve just got to do a better job of communicating.Baylor failed to gain a first down on the risky fourth-down play. But the Bears defense covered for the miscue by eventually stopping Oklahoma State on a fourth-and-two inside the Baylor 3.Russell, inconsistent in the first three games, had by far his best game of the season in the win over the Cowboys, passing for 387 yards and four TDs en route to Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week honors. He benefited from the return of wide receiver Ishmael Zamora, who had been suspended for the first three games of the season for beating a dog.The Bears are likely to rest wide receiver KD Cannon, who has been slowed by a groin injury.

Jenson Button thinks the rest of the field are letting Formula One down by failing to challenge Mercedes for the third season in a row. Marco Belinelli Spurs Jersey .Mercedes looks locked in for a third straight constructors crown, while the drivers championship is once again a two-horse race between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. The German manufacturer has dominated F1 since the introduction of the V6 turbos - it has won 43 of the 50 races since the start of 2014.Button believes the rest of the field have simply not done a good enough job.When asked about the Hamilton-Rosberg title fight, the McLaren driver replied: Its a not a fight were involved with. Its not a fight that really makes any difference to me whatsoever -- who wins or who doesnt win. For me, the important thing is we get other teams involved fighting at the front, because having just two guys in the same car fighting at the front is not what the sport needs.It needs other manufacturers involved, other teams involved, and thats where were letting the sport down by not doing a good enough job. Races like Barcelona when Mercedes werent in the race [after crashing out], everyone loved it because there were four cars fighting for the win.Thats something we hadnt had for three years, so hopefully well have more of that in the future of Formula One.Regulation changes next year will move the onus back towards aerodynamics, with wider and more aggressive-looking cars. Much has been made of the strength of Mercedes engine but Button thinks it is wrong to assume that is the only reason the world champions are doing so well.In terms of why theyre so good? I dont know. I think if we all knew, wed be as good as them. They have a lot of very talented people, and maybe the [current] regulations are in their favour.For next year, could they be caught out? Maybe. Possibly. But then I dont really think their power unit is that superior compared to the Ferrari, for example. They just have a very good car. Their overall package is fantastic.I dont think you can just point at the engine and say, thats why theyre performing well, because there are lots of other cars with the same engine that arent performing anywhere near as well.

McLarens full Australian GP-specification car will now be tested for the first time on the season-opening weekend after they ran out of time at Barcelona. Bruce Brown Jr. Jersey . The Woking team did introduce new chassis parts onto the MP4-31 at the final test but delays in the manufacturing process at their Woking base meant the full package wasnt ready to run in time for Fridays final day.We are not running the 2016 spec here, said racing director Eric Boullier. We are a bit behind the programme. So that means we are going to turn up in Australia with more bits on the car, which have unfortunately not been signed off here. But it is what it is.Boullier downplayed the reasons for the full specification not arriving in time, saying they were perhaps only guilty of being too ambitious in the production timetable.Although the team will now face a particularly busy Friday practice in Melbourne on March 18, Boullier said they could be pleased with the mileage they were able to complete with the new Honda-powered car during the winter. We have been able to run most of the days, which is very good news, said Boullier, after McLaren finished fifth on the mileage charts at the final test with 453 laps completed.In terms of chassis, its important that we could go through all the systems, which we couldnt do last year. So for us its a good achievement. Now we have a reliable car, more or less, to start the season - so we are definitely more confident. Whats the 2016 pecking order? Crunching the numbers and analysing the lap times from F1s winter testing Honda ran two versions of their 2016 power unit across the two tests and their new F1 chief Yusuke Hasegawa confirmed the final specification had now been homologated for the first race, describing it as a good start point.And with the results of the MP4-31 on track matching their simulation data, Boullier believes the team can look to make continuation improvement once the season commences.There will be more to come now, he predicted. The base looks okay and there will be much more performance in the coming weeks. While reliability may have improved, McLarens position in the initial 2016 pecking order remains uncertain with the team themselves not making predictions about how competitive they will be at the first race.The team, who endured their worst season in 30 years in 2015, finished the second test with a 13th-fastest time which was two seconds adrift of Ferraris leading pace.Asked if they could be fighting with Force India and Toro Rosso, Boullier replied: We will see when we turn up in Melbourne with our full spec.Its true that Force India and Toro Rosso were competitive last year. Their cars were just an evolution of last year, so there is no reason why they will not be competitive.The first race of the 2016 F1 season, the Australian GP, is exclusively live on Sky Sports F1.

With Major League Baseballs winter meetings scheduled to start in less than a week, sources say club officials are aware of the possibility that teams wont participate if there is not sufficient progress in the on-going collective bargaining discussions.The current agreement expires Dec. 1, and the two sides are in negotiations in Dallas. The conversations have been far from seamless, and though sources on both sides believe the unsettled issues are not of such gravity that they threaten the integrity of the upcoming season, talks have progressed slowly.If the owners take the formal step of locking out the players once the current agreement expires, teams likely would not send representatives to the winter meetings in Washington, D.C.Much of the work done at the annual winter meetings is based on the rules of the collective bargaining agreement, and without rules in place, the busiiness of baseball would largely screech to a halt.
