Marlon Byrd: With Their Chemistry, Mets Can Win 90 Games — Or More

Originally posted on CBS New York:

The right fielder — who was excellent for the Amazin’s in 2013 before being traded to the Pirates — signed a two-year, $16 million contract with the Phillies in November.

“Oprah Winfrey is in discussions with David Geffen and Larry Ellison to make a bid for the Los Angeles Clippers should the team become available,” said Nicole Nichols, a spokeswoman for the lifestyle guru, in a statement. The Wall Street Journal previously reported Winfrey’s interest in the team.

The Los Angeles Clippers are widely seen as being in play – the mergers-and-acquisitions kind, that is – after National Basketball Association Commissioner Adam Silver ruled that current owner Donald Sterling was banned from the league after being caught on tape uttering racist remarks about African-Americans.
