    Posted this in the previous thread, but with a new one started, here is the confirmation that David Price opts out of the MLB season.

    Does Vegas have an over/under on how many of those will actually happen?

    I reported rumours of 40M+ yearly compensation for Mahomes back in late Winter, but a TEN year deal at 45M per is more than I expected.

    Granted, without knowing all the details of the contract it's difficult to say just what percentage of the Chiefs' cap Mahomes' contract is going to eat up once this extension kicks in.

    Nice haul for Mahomes! Congratulations! :nod:

    Most of the baseball players on the list are already on a massive career downslide too, either from injuries or just plain declining skills. A whole lot of millions for very little return.

    While we wait for NHL camps to start and while things are not looking so good for the MLS, F1 came back last weekend with a very good Austrian Grand Prix, full of action. Part 2 next weekend as they will race on the same circuit for the Styrian GP.

    COVID could get to F1 too, but so far so good since the season restart. Teams and staff have been split into many "bubbles", for example each photographer is restricted to a limited number of teams.

    Usain Bolt introduces us to his daughter, Olympia Lightning Bolt.

    She's adorable. But damn, with that name, she better never finish 2nd or later in any race.

    Didn't knew that MLB had any actual plans for expansion. The last MLB expansion was done 22 years ago! Was wondering if they had other candidates but according to the article the only potential move at the moment is the one we all know which is Tampa Bay playing part time here in Montreal. The MLB seems to have a list though:
    Source

    Expansion fees are expected to be around 1 billion $USD! Crazy!

    Its great they are finally changing their name. However I hate when they take the name of another team in the big 4 sports leagues, can they not be more creative than that.
