GM John Chayka continues his tradition of strong offseasons.

First, the Coyotes flipped Max Domi to Montreal for Alex Galchenyuk, giving the young (hopefully) center the change in scenery he needs. They inked speedy scorer Michael Grabner at $3.35 million annually for three seasons. They re-upped Kevin Connauton for two years at $1.375 million against the cap. They also extended Niklas Hjalmarsson through 2021 at $5 million per season.

Morrison hit his ninth home run deep to right to lead off the seventh for the first run of the game. The drive was just Minnesota’s second hit off White Sox starter Lucas Giolito, who didn’t allow any hits until Eddie Rosario lined a double off first baseman Jose Abreu’s glove with one out in the sixth.

Twins starter Jake Odorizzi tossed six shutout innings in his best outing in more than a month, allowing three hits and striking out eight. The righty, who was 0-3 with an 8.77 ERA in his last six turns, said he’s been making adjustments from start to start. The White Sox hardly threatened to score when he was on the mound.

The A’s went 8-2 on cheap jerseys their three-city road trip, the first time they had won eight times on a single swing since going 10-0 on a trip to Cleveland, Detroit and Kansas City as part of their 20-game winning streak in 2002. Oakland has won 10 of 12 overall.

This shows you what can happen when a whole team gets going, Manaea said. Everyone is picking each other up right now, and we’re winning a lot of games.

No surprise there, that James is working behind the scenes to set up his own dream team. http://www.wholesalejerseychinaelite.com/ The veteran has the leverage and desire to build the team he wants, as he did when he and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade with the Miami Heat.

Three players in particular James might be interested in teaming with, Heisler says, are Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and Chris Paul. The Spurs, however, would likely balk at trading the disgruntled Leonard to a Western Conference rival, no matter how much he apparently wants out of San Antonio.
