→ Clemson DE Shaq Lawson says he’s declaring for the NFL draft

Not a surprise. Hopefully, he can leave as a national champion.

→ Clemson relishes break between games after playing 10 consecutive weeks

I wonder how much having to play 10 games in a row impacted them down the stretch. I am cautiously optimistic that they’ll play a little stronger come December 31.

→ Mariners trade for Red Sox left-hander Wade Miley

The Red Sox get Carson Smith and left-hander Roenis Elias. Aaron Gleeman at Hardball Talk says the following about Smith and Elias:

Smith has quietly been one of the best setup men in baseball for the past two seasons, throwing 78 innings with a 2.07 ERA and 102/25 K/BB ratio. He’s another huge upgrade to a Boston bullpen that also added Craig Kimbrel to holdover Koji Uehara. Elias is a potentially useful 27-year-old starter, so the Red Sox seemingly did pretty well here.

→ WWE Continues To Tease Charlotte Heel Turn, Kevin Owens Back At RAW This Week

This makes sense. Turn Charlotte heel so that (face) Sasha Banks can chase her and win the title at Wrestlemania.

→ Clemson to play the Sooners in the Orange Bowl

I guess I know what I’ll be doing at 4pm on New Year’s Eve.

→ Sasha Banks to be on Renee Young’s WWE Network Show Wednesday

I’m going to have to check this out.

→ Hanley Ramirez says he’s ready for life as Red Sox first baseman

It’s so hard to believe Ramirez is really some kind of “clubhouse cancer”, when he always seems to be doing and saying the right thing. I really hope the transition to first base works out for him (and the Sox.)

→ Spieth is — where else? — in a tie for the lead at the Hero World Challenge

This just in. Jordan Spieth is good at golf.

→ NFL defends ‘very good’ officials, says one Patriots penalty was called right

The NFL is such a joke. Of course the these horrible officials are “very good.”

→ David Price says he’s been saving postseason wins for the Red Sox

Pretty good answer to a question that you knew would be asked.

→ This is Marcus Paige…

This is pretty awesome.

→ Clemson’s resume makes for interesting debate, even with a loss

I hope it doesn’t come to this, but I feel like it’s going to.

→ Agent Carter Delayed Thanks To Obama

Huge bummer.

→ David Price is worth a $217 million deal

I agree with Greenberg.

→ Question for the committee: Does Clemson deserve to make playoff even if it loses?

Interesting column from Wetzel, but I really hope it doesn’t come to that (even though I have a fear that it will.)

→ Tiger Woods says there is ‘no timetable’ for his return

I still am bummed that Tiger’s dominance ended so abruptly.

→ Paige Funko Coming To WWE.Com Wednesday!

I’m pumped about a Paige Funko, but I wish it wasn’t the exact same mode as AJ.

→ Report: Red Sox sign David Price

Is it baseball season, yet?
