July 11, 2018 5:33 PM Republicans take ‘baby step’ in opposition to Trump’s tariffs

WASHINGTON — Republicans have made a gentle, symbolic move toward reining in President Donald Trump on tariffs. But it’s unclear whether they’re willing to go any further than that.

July 2, 2018 9:55 PM Joe Thornton signs extension with Sharks

SAN JOSE, CALIF. — Under less suspenseful circumstances, Joe Thornton followed the precedent that he set last summer, opting to rejoin the Sharks for another year. Thornton signed a one-year contract reportedly worth $5 million with the Sharks on Monday, ensuring that he’ll return to San Jose for a 14th season in teal. The 39-year-old’s decision isn’t 6

July 2, 2018 9:53 PM Joey Bats lands on his feet with Mets in town to face Blue Jays

“He’s done a lot for me,” Gibbons reminisced. “He’s done a lot for this team.” The bench boss had watched, from a distance, as free-agent Bautista failed to get a contract nibble in the off-season. Somewhat surprised by that, even granting that, at 37, Bautista had a lot of tree rings on him and had lost some of his ferocious bat speed. “I thought he’d be perfect 8

While new Maple Leaf John Tavares was the biggest name to move, veterans Paul Stastny, Jack Johnson, Michael Grabner and Chris Kunitz also changed teams on the opening day of NHL free agency Sunday.

July 1, 2018 10:44 PM Roseanne Barr wants to apologize to Valerie Jarrett but doesn’t have ‘the right words’

Roseanne Barr has been in damage-control mode ever since ABC cancelled her show after she sent out a tweet comparing Valerie Jarrett, a former adviser to president Barack Obama, to an ape. Her first mea culpa came in an interview with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach last week in which she wept and said, “I’m not a racist. I’m an idiot.” “I’m a lot of things, a loudmouth 9

July 1, 2018 8:52 PM Maple Leafs hit and miss on NHL free-agent market

A year ago, the speedy, age-defying winger arrived as the first real sign that an established NHL star believed in the Leafs’ rebuild featuring Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner. The 38-year-old didn’t disappoint with a 27-goal campaign. The Leafs believed they got the best third-line winger in the NHL, but Clarkson — based on the inflated contract — wanted 10
