Coutinho has scored in his last three successive matches for Liverpool . "We are [financially] prepared to sign Coutinho or any other player in January".

Joe Girardi: "I screwed up" by not challenging HBP call

Cleveland manager Terry Francona's decision to start Kluber in Game 2 of the ALDS instead of Game 1 raised some eyebrows, but it couldn't have worked out better.
