Red Sox Accept Invitation To White House

Absent Eovaldi steals show at Red Sox video premiere

Boston Red Sox President and CEO Sam Kennedy believes legalised USA sports betting's main impact will be increased fan engagement.

Team visits to the White House after winning a championship have been routine since the 1980s. "It's an opportunity for these guys to get the recognition they deserve for a world championship".

The possibilities of increased revenues could come in many guises, but Kennedy believes that benefit could well play second fiddle: "Yes, there will be a positive revenue impact for the team - how much I don't know - but that is absolutely secondary in my opinion to the (increased) engagement, to people following, paying attention, being engaged with the Boston Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins and Celtics as a result of betting on that sport and betting on in-game activities".

The Red Sox will be the second Boston sports team to visit the White House during the Trump administration, as the Patriots (minus starting quarterback and MVP Tom Brady, anyway) visited Trump in April. 2017.

"I'm not going to embarrass anybody".

Cora has been critical of President Trump in the past, particularly in regards to the Trump administration's response to Hurricane Maria that leveled Cora's native Puerto Rico in 2017. This is about a country that really suffered. What's going to happen between a pitcher a batter at this very moment, what will this outcome be - you can see in the future where that all can happen very fast in real time. One thing's for sure, and I told [the media] before, one thing I'm proud, we're standing up on our own two feet.

Turkey seeks arrest of Saudi crown prince allies over Khashoggi
Last week, the Senate overwhelmingly voted to move forward on a resolution curtailing USA backing for the Saudi-led war in Yemen. President Trump has equivocated about assigning blame for Khashoggi's killing, frustrating lawmakers from both parties.

'It's a little bit, kind of like, frustrating that the topic keeps coming and coming and coming, ' Cora continued. He's the president of the United States. And like I said: Hey, man, thank you for helping us.

"I'm gonna use my platform the right way". The Golden State Warriors declined an invitation to the White House after winning the 2017 NBA Finals, and Trump rescinded the Philadelphia Eagles' invitation on the heels of their Super Bowl LII win after several players said they wouldn't attend amid the NFL's ongoing national anthem dispute.

'I know regardless of who wins this series, no one wants an invite anyway, ' he said, as quoted by ESPN's Mark Jones.

The Houston Astros visited the White House in March, and the Washington Capitals have received an invitation.

NASCAR driver Martin Truex Jr. also visited the White House after winning a points title in 2017.
