Going into Saturday at the 2018 Winter Olympics, the medals race looked very similar to previous days: Norway, Germany and the Netherlands were in the top three, in that order. While Germany led all of them in gold medals with nine, the other two had six. In the evening, the men’s figure skating medals were to be handed out, which was the biggest on the day.
Game Mens Ken Crawley Jersey The early morning saw three events with medals given out: men’s 15-kilometer individual cross country skiing, women’s 5000-meter speed skating and women’s aerials in freestyle skiing. The medals for those events didn’t all go to the top countries in the medal count, which certainly shook things up.
In freestyle skiing, Belarus picked up the gold thanks to Hanna Huskova, while China’s Zhang Xin and Kong Fanyu managed silver and bronze.

The Padres have reportedly signed former Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer to a massive eight-year deal that’s worth $144 million.
Hosmer reportedly had offers on the table from the Royals as well, but either San Diego offered him more years and money, or he was just ready for a fresh start with a new team. Regardless, Hosmer is a Padre now, and it won’t be long until we’ll find out how his power will play in Petco and against a steady diet of NL pitching.
The Hosmer signing wasn’t the only thing that went down on Saturday night. The Twins traded for Rays starter Jake Odorizzi, which gives them the starter they so sorely needed after Ervin Santana went down with a hand injury. The Rays also traded for Angels first baseman C.J. Cron for some reason, and then DFA’d Corey Dickerson, their All-Star designated hitter, also for some reason.
A trade is definitely coming for Dickerson. He hit .282/.325/.490 with 27 home runs in 2017, and he would be a great fit for a variety of AL teams. But even assuming that, all any of this does is clear a really small amount of salary. And while it looks like the Rays might be burning it all down, they haven’t tossed the kerosene on the fire yet.
