Guys will start making adjustments and putting the ball in play more." MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred pitched rule changes including a pitch clock, adjustments to strike zone dimensions and limits on mound visits for the start of the 2017 season, but the players' union rebuffed those suggestions with the exception of a new protocol that will eliminate the antiquated intentional walk procedure. "I have to admit that I'm disappointed we could not even get the MLBPA to agree to modest rule changes like limit trips to the (pitchers) mound that had little effect on the competitive character of the game," Manfred said Tuesday, per USA Today 's Bob Nightengale . However, change appears to be on the horizon in some shape or form. According to Nightengale , MLB has the ability to impose rule alterations for the 2018 season without the MLBPA 's consent.

After a meatloaf lunch at the White House last Tuesday, President Donald Trump made New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie an intriguing offer: Would he like to be secretary of labor? Christie said no, according to four people close to Trump who were briefed on the conversation, which was just the latest in a series of nudges Trump has given Christie about joining him in Washington. Christie has told Trump he is not interested and instead plans to join the private sector after he leaves Trenton next year, two people close to Trump said. Christie’s office didnt respond to a request for comment. The White House did not respond to multiple requests for comment. The previously unreported conversation is particularly notable because it happened during a whirlwind 48 hours in which Trump’s first nominee, Andrew Puzder, lost Senate support, withdrew his nomination, and was replaced by Alexander Acosta — and all the while Christie’s name never publicly popped up.

Chris Brown can do no wrong in the eyes of his Loyal fans. Earlier this week, the singer's ex Karrueche Tran was granted a restraining order against him over claims that Brown threatened to kill her. Even with a court order -- and the 27-year-old's well-documented history with abuse -- some of Breezy's backers insisted his ex was lying for attention. Related: Soulja Boy Taunts Chris After Karrueche's Restraining Order! But singer Kay Cola is here to defend the model, claiming she heard the hip-hop star hitting Tran back when they were dating. The 31-year-old went off on Brown in a Twitter tirade, claiming she lived underneath him at the time and called the police after hearing Tran "screaming at the top of her lungs." On Tuesday, she explained: Some of y'all make me sick to my stomach talking about. Karrueches lying. I've heard him beating her myself.

"I want people to be safe on both sides." State officials have set up a travel assistance center to provide departing protesters with food, water and health check-ups, as well as a voucher for one night's accommodation at a Bismarck hotel and a bus ticket home. "We're making sure that we're taking care of people that may not have means," said a spokesman for the state highway patrol, Lieutenant Tom Iverson. Trump, a Republican, signed an executive order clearing the way for the $3.8 billion pipeline to proceed. A judge denied a request earlier this month by two tribes seeking to halt construction. The tribes are seeking an injunction to order the Army Corps to withdraw the easement. The pipeline will be complete and ready for oil between March 6 and April 1, according to court documents filed Tuesday.

Bureaucratic snags Shearer said the government's process of issuing clearances for UNMISS officials entering South Sudan was tedious and overly bureaucratic. The South Sudan government signed a "status of force agreement" with the United Nations in 2011 that allows the U.N. to deploy peacekeepers in the country and guarantees freedom of movement for U.N. peacekeepers. The UNMISS chief said the mission was still waiting for the government to approve the visas of additional peacekeepers deployed to South Sudan. "There are some problems within the bureaucracy of the government, which is not allowing them to be able to get into the country," Shearer said. "This is a real problem and it interferes with our effective operation of our forces." On Tuesday, Kiir said his government would ease access for humanitarian aid agencies, but he did not elaborate.

Tuesday in an interview with New York City-based NY1, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said she expected President Donald Trumps nominee to fill the U.S. Supreme Court vacancy Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed. She explained why she opposed the 10th Circuit Court appellate judge but said she had little faith that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wouldnt do what was necessary to see that he is confirmed. I am hopeful that my colleagues will vote their conscience and decide up or down whether this nominee is worthy of this high responsibility, she said. I hope we do vote him down. But make no mistake: If we do hold the line with 60 votes, Mitch McConnell will change the rules the next day. So it will be Mitch McConnells decision. I do not have any hope that he wont change the rules the minute he doesnt get his way.
