Pochettino hails ‘priceless’ Gallagher after Chelsea comeback win

Mauricio Pochettino stated match-winner Conor Gallagher is “priceless” to Chelsea after his two goals helped them to a 3-1 victory at Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Monday evening.

Center fielder Harrison Bader and the New York Mets agreed on a one-year, $10.5 million contract Thursday, sources told ESPN, the latest in a series of short-term pacts for the Mets as they approach 2024 as a transitional season.
