United would also have to sell one of their star attackers, perhaps Romelu Lukaku, to make the deal possible, as per the abovementioned publication.

Fiers didn't walk a man until Suarez leading off the seventh, and he was instantly erased on a double play grounder from Profar to Marcus Semien to Matt Olson. But this one is special in another regard: it was utterly improbable and the 300th no-no in Major League Baseball history. Farmer popped up into right field, and it looked like that was the end of Fiers' streak - until A's second baseman Jurickson Profar came way out for a spectacular diving catch for the second out of the inning.

The Bruins will be without Charlie McAvoy for the series opener against the Hurricanes on Thursday night after the 21-year-old defenseman was suspended for one game for an illegal check on Columbus' Josh Anderson . A second-line of Nino Niederreiter-Jordan Staal-Justin Williams have ridiculously good underlying numbers and should go head-to-head with Boston 1 when the games are in Carolina but should absolutely neutralize and carry the play to the David Krejci line when they're in Boston.

Gattuso's argument with Bakayoko - reportedly sparked by the midfielder's desire for more time to warm-up - seemed to blur Milan's focus and only an offside flag against Rodrigo Palacio prevented them from falling behind. Borini snapped up the rebound after Paqueta's shot was parried by Lukasz Skorupski in the 67th minute, although Destro scored with a shot on the turn five minutes later. (more...)
