SAN DIEGO - Some things to know from Major League Baseballs winter meetings, which wrapped up on Thursday:FINISH WITH A FLOURISHThe winter meetings ended with a flurry of big deals that realigned the stars. Hours after late night deals sent All-Star Howie Kendrick across Los Angeles from the Angels to Dodgers and the Dodgers sent Dee Gordon and Dan Haren to Miami, teams were at it again at sunrise. The Marlins acquired Mat Latos from the Reds, who also sent starter Alfredo Simon to Detroit. Soon after, the Tigers shipped Rick Porcello to Boston for Yoenis Cespedes.DOT THOSE Is AND CROSS THE TsWith the winter meetings taking place at a hotel about a 10 minute walk from Petco Park, the Padres were determined to make some noise. Boy, did they. Most awoke Thursday to the news of pending deal in which they would acquire Dodgers star outfielder Matt Kemp. Los Angeles would send catcher Tim Federowicz and $32 million of the $107 million still remaining on Kemps contract to San Diego. The Dodgers would get catcher Yasmani Grandal and two pitchers. The Dodgers are also working on a swap with Philadelphia that would land them 2007 NL MVP shortstop Jimmy Rollins.STRICTLY BY THE NUMBERSTwelve trades involving 44 players were made over the four days, according to Major League Baseball, up from five swaps last year and three in 2012. There hadnt been this many trades at a winter meetings since 2006. The Angels, Dodgers, White Sox and Marlins each were involved in three official deals, by either trade or free-agent signing.COME ON KNOCK ON OUR DOORDetroit and Cincinnati made a trade on the final day of the meetings, and proximity may have played a part. Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski and Reds GM Walt Jocketty ended up with rooms across the hall from each other. The old friends spent a lot of time paying each other visits — in PJs and slippers, perhaps? — while working on the swap that sent Simon to Detroit for Reds minor league right-hander Jonathon Crawford and infielder Eugenio Suarez. We made the deal in the hallway, Jocketty joked. Layvin Kurzawa Paris Saint-Germain Jersey

.K. Subban and Matt Duchene will be the two skaters sitting out the teams opening game.Denny Morrison is having the Olympics of a lifetime. Three days after taking silver in the mens 1,000-metre long track speed skating event at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Morrison has added a bronze to his cabinet, this time in the 1,500 metres on Saturday. "Its been a long road with a lot of persistence and its finally paid off," an elated Morrison told CBC Sports after the race. Morrison, skating 15th of 20 pairs, capitalized on a strong opening lap to lay down a time of one minute, 45.22 seconds, and was the leader until Polands Zbigniew Brodka topped it for gold in 1:45.00. "What Ive found [in 1,500-metre races] is that I cant go out slow and conservative and try to beat the other guys who finish strong, I have to go out my way – go out fast, and just hang on," Morrison said. "And I was able to hang on just enough." There was more drama to come in the final pairing. Dutch skater Koen Verweij finished in a dead heat with Brodka, crossing the line in 1:45.00 as well. When the times were adjusted, Brodka ended up with the gold medal, a mere three thousandths of a second ahead. But it also meant that Morrison had his medal, after an agonizing wait to see if any of the 10 skaters after him could take his place on the podium. "It is [excruciating], you already want to puke," he said. "Youre already so tired and hurting, but man does it feel good to win [a medal]." Mathieu Giroux of Pointe-aux-Trembles, Que., finished in 19th in 1:47.65. Lukas Makowsky of Regina placed 28th in a time of 11:48.dddddddddddd.51. Teenager Vincent de Haitre of Cumberland, Ont., was 33rd in 1:49.42. Morrisons bronze puts Canadas medal count at 12, with four gold, five silver, and three bronze. Morrison, Giroux and Makowsky are expected to compete in the team pursuit event next week, as they attempt to defend their gold medal from the Vancouver Olympics. Morrisons efforts have been one of the highlights of the Olympics so far for Canada. Not even scheduled to compete in the 1,000-metres after falling in the event at the Canadian trials, Morrison was given a spot in the race thanks to teammate Gilmore Junio, who gave up his. The Fort St. John, B.C., native fully took advantage of the opportunity, taking silver in the 1,000 metres behind Stefan Groothuis of the Netherlands. Defending Olympic champion Mark Tuitert of the Netherlands finished fifth. American Shani Davis continued his disappointing 2014 Olympic campaign with an 11th-place finish. Canada now has two medals in long track, both from Morrison. The Dutch team has dominated the proceedings at Adler Arena, taking four gold and 13 medals so far in only seven races, matching the record set by East Germany in the 1988 Games in Calgary. With five long track events still remaining, the Netherlands will likely surpass that mark in the coming days. To compare, the other nations have eight long track medals combined. Its a big turnaround for the Dutch team from their Vancouver effort in long track, where it finished well below expectations with three gold and only seven medals total.
