At the very least, sluggers Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion are expected to receive qualifying offers from the Blue Jays. "What I can tell you is that we're trying to win and we're going to continue to try to win," Atkins said. Extending a qualifying offer — worth US$17.2 million — ensures that the Blue Jays would receive compensation if a player signs with another team as a free agent.

Perhaps nobody can understand the current plight of embattled Maple Leafs netminder Frederik Andersen quite like James Reimer, the longest tenured goalie in Toronto over the past decade.

"Everyone's going to voice their opinion, and everyone's allowed to do that," said Reimer, who returns to Toronto as an opponent for the first time on Thursday night. "People can boo, people can cheer, it's up to them.
What's better than one Smith? Five of them. One of Hollywood's most beloved families hit the red carpet at the 26th annual Environmental Media Awards on Saturday in L.A., where they were later joined like major stars like Nicole Richie, Shailene Woodley, and more. Stepping onto the green carpet like the proud parents that they are, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith arrived hand in hand looking as happy as ever. The star couple shone, with Pinkett Smith rocking an all-white suit with a beige top and matching ankle-strap heels while Will kept it dapper in a navy suit. Their children, 18-year-old son Jaden and 15-year-old daughter Willow, as well as Will's 23-year-old son Trey (from a previous marriage) also turned out in sleek looks for the evening. So what was the entire family on hand for? Jaden received the Male EMA Futures Award for his honorable work in making the environment a priority. In his acceptance speech, the young actor thanked Woodley, his "favorite actress in the world" and fellow 2016 Futures Award winner, for her contributions. He also revealed how his passion for the environment began at age 10, for which he expressed appreciation for his family--specifically, his parents--for their support.

Willow, dressed in a sporty ensemble, took a moment to pose with her older brother, too. See more of their too-cute family gathering below--and cue the awws!

Cranberry capsules didn't prevent or cure urinary infections in nursing home residents in a study challenging persistent unproven claims to the contrary. The research adds to decades of conflicting evidence on whether cranberries in any form can prevent extremely common bacterial infections, especially in women. Many studies suggesting a benefit were based on weak science, but that hasn't stopped marketers and even some health care providers from recommending cranberry juice or capsules as an inexpensive way to avoid these uncomfortable and potentially risky infections.
Instead, the somewhat surprising revelation from a number of reputable sources was that the Calgary Flames may or may not be shopping Dougie Hamilton started to percolate over the weekend. The idea here is that Calgary may no longer enamored of their young defender, less a year and a half after giving him six years at $5.75 million against the cap. It would certainly be an interesting wrinkle in this early season, and there is some foundation for the rumors in terms of how Hamilton is used, and has been for some time.
America's top intelligence official echoed what many U.S. experts have long argued when he said this week there was little chance North Korea would agree to shut down its nuclear weapons program. The surprise, though, was that National Intelligence Director James Clapper had made the statement publicly, staking out a position contrary to the White House's and wading into policy questions. "To hear the head of the intelligence community say that the North Koreans are not going to give up their nuclear weapons, he's just telling us what everyone already knows," said Ralph Cossa, president of the Pacific Forum CSIS, a Honolulu-based foreign policy research institute, and a longtime Asia security analyst with the U.S. military.
