PITTSBURGH - Clayton Kershaw soon could become the richest pitcher in baseball history. But Kershaw was upset that he had to talk Sunday about his ongoing negotiations with the Dodgers, whom he blamed for leaking information to Fox Sports. The previous night, Fox Sports reported that Kershaw and the Dodgers were "making progress" toward agreement on a seven-year contract extension. According to the report, which cited unnamed "major league sources," the deal being discussed would be worth more than the record $180-million, seven-year contract between the Detroit Tigers and Justin Verlander, who in March agreed to five-year extension through 2019.

Is it the anchor? The content? Or Oprah Winfrey? Not even a coven of late-night psychic friends could figure this one out. And though local stations have been willing to lay out basketball player-sized contracts to lure name anchors away from the competition, general managers and news directors are loathe, if not downright unable, to pinpoint just what it is that makes news viewers watch one station over the other. "Anchors are a major factor.

When California officials announced this month that they would begin tracking virulent "superbug" infections in gyms, schools and other community settings, they billed it as a major advance in public health. But the plan would capture just a fraction of drug-resistant infections, leaving the vast majority unreported to the state and unknown to the public, according to experts and consumer advocates.

  PITTSBURGH - Clayton Kershaw said Sunday he was upset that news about his contract talks with the Dodgers had leaked out. “I think the reason we've been able to continue discussions for this long is that it's not been talked about,” Kershaw said. “And now that I'm having to talk about it, it's a distraction because people are talking about it. I guess you'll have to talk to the Dodgers as to why it came out now. I don't love the fact that I have to talk about it.” Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported that Kershaw and the Dodgers are “making progress” on a seven-year extension that would be the most lucrative deal ever given to a pitcher.
