Business at the high end is grand for Trump

Real estate magnate Trump plays golf during the opening of his Trump International Golf Links golf course near Aberdeen, northeast ScotlandBy Larry Fine NEW YORK (Reuters) - Warning bells have sounded on the health of golf, from lower participation and course closures to environmental demands for reduced water use, but billionaire Donald Trump says business at the high end is grand. Trump on Tuesday will stage the grand opening of Trump Links at Ferry Point, his latest golf enterprise, where he oversaw the transformation of a New York City dump into a jewel of a public course designed by Jack Nicklaus. People are thrilled," the businessman told Reuters from behind his massive desk on the top floor of Trump Tower on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue.

Rafael Nadal must silence French Open fans and doubters in first round
Defeat by the 18-year-old qualifier Quentin Halys would be the biggest upset in tennis history and inspire an orgy of speculation about the Spaniard’s future

Roger Federer’s vow on Monday to continue playing tennis until after the 2016 Olympics in Rio thrilled his millions of followers, of course – but there is lingering doubt about the longevity of the Swiss’s enduring rival, Rafael Nadal.

While it is inconceivable that the Spaniard, who has won nine French Open titles and 66 of 67 matches at Roland Garros over 10 years, will lose in his opening-round match against the 18-year-old French wild card Quentin Halys on Tuesday, such a calamity would inspire not only wild celebration among Parisians who have often been ambivalent about their imported king of clay but an orgy of speculation elsewhere about Nadal’s future.

Charlie Morton debuts tonight; Radhames Liz designated for assignment
#Pirates Roster Move: Charlie Morton has been reinstated from the 15-day DL & Radhames Liz has been designated for assignment. — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) May 25, 2015 Ladies and gentlemen, the day you’ve been waiting for has arrived…Charlie Morton is back.

Ladies and gentlemen, the day you’ve been waiting for has arrived…Charlie Morton is back. Who knows what to expect? Certainly not me. When healthy, Morton has been a perfectly fine back of the rotation arm – which the Pirates could really use right about now – but he’s incredibly unpredictable and the health is always a question mark. His rehab starts went fairy well, so that’s good news at least.

We’ve known for a few days that Morton would return to pitch in this game, but we did not know what the corresponding roster move would be. The answer is the departure of Radhames Liz, who was the weakest link of the bullpen to this point and was made expendable after Vance Worley joined the pen as the “long guy.” Bringing Liz in was a gamble from the start, and it’s not as if he was completely terrible (3.63 ERA, although most of his secondary numbers were worse) but this has to sting at least a little bit for the Pirates since they handed him a major league contract (1 yr/$1 mil) and hoped to make him another example of their pitcher-fixing-ability. Oh well, sometimes it just doesn’t work out. There’s a chance Liz can stick around in the organization if nobody claims him off waivers – I am sure the Bucs would like to stash him in the minors for a bit if that happens.
