The Detroit Tigers have added another Cy Young Award winner to their star-studded rotation, acquiring Tampa Bay’s David Price in a blockbuster deal Thursday. The trade joins Price with Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander in the rotation for the AL Central-leading Tigers, giving Detroit the last three American League Cy Young winners. The deal comes just hours after the Oakland Athletics got Jon Lester from the Boston Red Sox. Tampa Bay has played much better over the last month and entered Thursday only 5 1/2 games behind a wild card – but the Rays decided to deal their ace anyway.

Manu Ginobili walked off the court in June an NBA champion. The toll that pursuit took on his 37-year-old body is now preventing him from the only team he loves more than the San Antonio Spurs. Ginobili will not play for Argentina at the FIBA World Cup because of a stress fracture in his right leg that has bothered the Spurs guard since the playoffs. The Argentine Basketball Federation announced the decision on Thursday, prompting Ginobili to post a tweet in Spanish saying he was ”so sorry” that he couldn’t compete with his beloved national team.
