6 pitchers combine on 5-hitter, Rays beat Yankees 2-1

Posted on by

The high-powered New York Yankees were stymied by Tampa Bay’s relievers.

Six Tampa Bay pitchers combined on a five-hitter, and the Rays beat the New York Yankees 2-1 Friday night.

Utilizing a bullpen day, the Rays improved to 14-31 against teams with a .500 or better record with the victory over the team with the majors’ best record. New York is 40-5 when allowing four or fewer runs.

You just don’t limit that team to one run very often, Rays manager Kevin Cash said. So as far as piecing it together and guys coming in and doing their jobs, that’s probably as good as you can make it.

The Rays wasted a chance to extend the lead in the sixth when Johnny Field struck out on a failed third-strike bunt attempt with two on and Matt Duffy hit a two-out grounder with the bases loaded to complete a 12-pitch at-bat against Adam Warren.

That was on me, poor communication on my part., Cash of the Field strikeout. That’s not how we drew it up. I didn’t take it off. I made the mistake.

I have heard that you did not start as a pitcher. What other positions have you played?
Well, you know, it’s true. I started at 6 years old playing [in my hometown]. I remember watching my brothers growing up playing baseball and I wanted to do the same thing. I started playing the outfield first to get used to it. Then I went to shortstop — and a guy named Andrelton Simmons shows up [and] I moved to third base. We played with each other. He played shortstop, and then I was at third, and then I moved to first. Then, I finally become a catcher.

How tall were you when they switched you to being a catcher?
I was short. I wasn’t the taller guy that I am now in the team. The most that I [grew] is when I signed [at] 16 years old. I was 6-2, I remember, 178 [pounds]. Then, next thing you know, I was 6-5, 220. So, yeah, a lot of growing!

The transition from catcher to pitcher — had to be that arm.
Yes, it would definitely be the arm. I remember in the World Baseball Classic [in 2009], throwing out Willy Taveras at third in Puerto Rico. And then I showed how I could throw from my knees, throwing Ryan Braun out from my knees. And they see that. I had been doing that more in the minor leagues. That made the Dodgers make that decision to, you know, let’s just put him on the mound.

Hall of Fame covers travel/lodging expenses, but not the inductee’s party

That theory regarding the real reason for the decision of receiver Terrell Owens to not show up for the Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony may have some merit.

Zook said the elimination of the running start will be a benefit to returners and make teams more likely to bring the ball out, though it remains to be seen whether the changes solve the injury problem on the play. He also said he didn’t think the end result would be the extinction of the play, as some feel to be inevitable.

I don’t think they are trying to phase it out, Zook said. It’s an exciting play — but it is one that we have to make sure that we’re making it safer. And I think with all the engineering and all the things that they’re doing, they’re going to accomplish that.

Arizona has filled that roster spot and the vacancy in their backfield. Former Tulane running back Sherman Badie announced on Twitter that he’s signed with the team.

Badie ran 296 times for 1,517 yards and nine touchdowns and caught 56 passes for 419 yards and a touchdown over four collegiate seasons. He worked out for the Cowboys last month without landing a job.

David Johnson fronts the Cardinals running back group with T.J. Logan, D.J. Foster, Elijhaa Penny and 2018 fourth-round pick Chase Edmonds also in the mix for roster spots.

It’s official: The Colts announced Thursday that Andrew Luck is headed to injured reserve.

I wish I was better and 100 percent this season, but that’s not the case, Luck said. I know I’ll be better from this. I know I’ll be a better quarterback, teammate, person and player from this, and I’m excited for the future.

Indianapolis Colts: Peyton Manning has some advice for Andrew Luck

Again. And again. And again. And again. And…聽
Adidas NHL Youth Josh Manson White Away Authentic Jersey - #42 Anaheim Ducks
That’s Peyton Manning’s advice to Andrew Luck: Just keep getting in those repetitions.

The Capitals have made the playoffs in 13 of 19 seasons since their only other trip to the Final in 1998, but hadn’t managed to get their fans back to the final round until this year. Capital One Arena in downtown Washington was packed with red-clad fans watching Game 2 on the videoboards.

The Caps improved to 9-3 on the road in the postseason after two games in this frequently chaotic series. The first two games of the Stanley Cup Final were split for only the third time in the last 13 editions of the NHL’s final round.

After a rough opener in Vegas, Holtby rounded back into something Miles Killebrew Jersey approaching his form in back-to-back shutouts to close the Eastern Conference finals. While his save on Tuch was the most impressive, he kept the Caps in charge with 15 saves in the third period, including a tenacious effort during a 5-on-3 advantage for 1:09 for the Knights.

The response from Manning’s representative came after court documents in Ryan Zimmerman and Ryan Howard’s聽defamation suit against Al Jazeera were unsealed, per Gardner.聽

According to the documents, Charles Sly鈥攚ho Al Jazeera said worked at the Guyer Institute in Indianapolis鈥攎ade the following statement:聽

DeAndre’ Bembry Youth Jersey I did part of my training at the Guyer Institute which is like this anti-aging clinic in Indiana. [Peyton Manning] and his wife would come in after hours and get IVs and s–t…. So one thing that Guyer does is he dispenses drugs out of his office, which physicians can do in the United States it’s just not very many of them do it…. And all the time we would be sending [wife] Ashley Manning drugs. Like growth hormone, all the time, everywhere, Florida. And it would never be under Peyton’s name, it would always be under her name…. We were sending it everywhere.

That comment was relayed to Manning’s representatives who, according to a document, confirmed much of what Sly had said.聽

Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said after his team finished up its first organized team activity practice.

Posted on by

The physical challenge is not what threatens to short-circuit Apple’s career. Jerry Reese, the general manager who picked Apple No. 10 overall in 2016, is gone. Ben McAdoo, the novice head coach who ultimately could not get through to Apple, is gone. Apple remains and the Giants need him to evolve into a solid starter, and that can only happen if his head is clear and screwed on straight.

I think I can be a great Pro Bowl player, he said. It’s just about every day going about my business and being a great player every day and being consistent.

It’s impossible to say whether the Browns would have turned elsewhere with their No. 1 pick if the Foles trade had panned out, as they may have still seen Mayfield as their quarterback of the future. But failing to add Foles to the mix makes the Browns’ depth chart of Taylor, Mayfield and Drew Stanton much less intimidating.

Adding insult to injury would be if the Eagles decide to trade the 29-year-old Foles either before the season or at the Oct. 31 trade deadline, especially if Wentz returns to Pro Bowl form.

It wouldn’t be the first time the Browns missed out on trading for a starting quarterback after they infamously failed to land AJ McCarron from the Bengals at last year’s trade deadline because of a paperwork snafu.

The NFL has passed a new rule for this season that says any player who initiates contact with his helmet is subject to ejection after an in-game video review that will be decided in New York.

Al Riveron, the league’s head of officiating, said a foul can be called regardless of where on the body — not just the head or neck area — that one player hits another with his helmet. The rule is not position-specific, so offensive players will be subject to the same criteria as defensive players.

This is about eliminating unnecessary use of the helmet, Riveron said Tuesday at the NFL spring meetings.

If a player is ejected, Riveron and his staff in New York will use network camera angles to determine if the ejection is necessary. He promised that games will not become an ejection fest every week.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix skipping Packers’ OTAs

Elite Mens David Harris Jersey The Kevin Durant Womens Jersey Pro Bowl safety has offered no explanation for his absence, but it’s probably a good guess he wants a long-term extension. Clinton-Dix currently is scheduled to play 2018 under the fifth-year option of $5.96 million.

The Buccaneers have made many regrettable picks on defense over the years. This recent whiff should begin to sting a little bit more. Barron, out of Alabama, was seen as a playmaking thumper with the potential of becoming the next John Lynch. But at the same time, Tampa Bay really needed a stud middle linebacker and was attached to taking Kuechly in several mock drafts. Instead, Barron had one semi-decent season before he become trade bait, while Kuechly dominates for the Bucs’ division rivals in Carolina.

The Patriots are 102-26 in the regular season with four Super Bowl appearances, including two titles, since McCourty joined them as a first-round pick in 2010.

The Patriots reacted to former teammate Cassius Marsh’s comment that playing for the Patriots is neither fun nor happy. Linebacker Dont’a Hightower said the Patriots have fun but admits it’s not for everyone.

McCourty wrote off Marsh’s comments as frustration.

Cassius had a frustrating time here. I didn’t think he would get released here and say New England was the time of his life. He can’t wait to try to come back some day.

He led cheers at the Pittsburgh Penguins’ NHL playoff game on Wednesday. And on Saturday, Shazier served as an honorary coach at Ohio State’s Scarlet vs. Gray game. Four months after suffering a career-threatening spinal injury on Monday Night Football against the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals, the Steelers linebacker stood up, waved his arms and embraced Malcolm Jenkins to a loud ovation.

But when he’s healthy, Rodgers can transcend all of it. His deep accuracy, both from in the pocket and when on the move, is something to behold, and one wonders how explosive his passing game would be if he had a coach who bent a bit more to the modern game. Rodgers will enter the 2018 season with Davante Adams and Randall Cobb as his primary receivers, and offseason acquisition Jimmy Graham proved in Seattle that you can still catch touchdowns in a flawed system. No matter who his targets are, Rodgers will do more with less deep passing help than any other quarterback in the league.

I did not suggest an overarching solution to any of these problems. Today, I’ll offer not an instant cure but a move that if orchestrated with intelligence and grace could begin to move the NFL into the 21st century. The NFL brain trust consists of 33 men 鈥?Commissioner Roger Goodell and 32 team owners.

Of the 33, only Jaguars owner Shad Khan is not white. He is of Pakistani descent. The Womens Tim Hardaway Jersey real problem with the makeup of the NFL brain trust is that there is never anyone in their meetings who can speak to the black experience in America.

With Edelman back in the fold and Cooks traded to the Los Angeles Rams, it’s possible Brady will return primarily to the short-to-intermediate passing game he’d been more comfortable with in recent years. But there are few quarterbacks in the league who can better take advantage of a defensive breakdown than Brady.

Throughout his career in Washington, Cousins was a tough evaluation. When he became the full-time starter in 2015, he led the league in completion percentage at 69.8, but he was often off on his deep passes, as his mechanics weren’t consistent and his ability to read the field was still somewhat limited. But over the next two seasons, he put the mechanical side of his game together, and his deep throws became more consistently accurate.

NFL Anthem Policy Shows What Little Regard It Has for Its Black Players

The NFL had nearly two years to find a solution, 21 months to do the right thing, 635 days to recalibrate its moral compass and show its black athletes and black fans that the biggest sport in America gets it.

Commissioner Roger Goodell, without input from the NFL Players Association or reportedly a formal vote from the owners, decided to force players to stand on the field for the national anthem or remain in the locker room. Teams and players are subject to fines if they decide to demonstrate, a gesture that Kaepernick started by sitting during the anthem during the 2016 preseason to protest police brutality and racial inequality.

I just felt it was time to move on from the 24/7-ness of football coverage and try something a little bit different, King told SI’s website. My 29 years at Sports Illustrated have been, collectively, a dream come true.

Eli Manning, Giants memorabilia fraud lawsuit settled

Posted on by

The memorabilia fraud case against Eli Manning has been settled.

A spokesman for the defendants on Monday said a settlement had been reached to resolve the claims after three sports memorabilia collectors accused the Giants quarterback of providing fake “game-worn” equipment.

While details were not disclosed, the attorneys for both sides issued a joint statement on the matter (per ESPN):

Some of that resiliency came from the stellar offensive play of Alex Ovechkin and Kuznetsov. Some of it came from a timely save or three by Braden Holtby, at least earlier in the playoffs. But much of it came from a supporting cast of players from the AHL and outside the organization — including relative veterans Devante Smith-Pelly (25 years old) and Alex Chiasson (27) — who didn’t understand that, as tradition holds with the Capitals, they were supposed to meekly leave the postseason when their opponents deemed it was time.

They hadn’t taken part in those playoff runs that stumbled in the semifinals. They didn’t know any better. “Some of these young guys, they think this is how it is every year,” said Trotz. “But that’s where you want to get to as an organization.”

It can even work with Clarkson! After Horford sank a jumper early in the second quarter, LeBron rushed up the left sideline, took a screen from Clarkson with about 20 on the shot clock, earned a switch, posted up Rozier, drew help from Horford, and nearly found Nance for another alley-oop:

Brown busted that by abandoning Korver in the corner, but coaxing that crisis rotation is a win for the Cavs. LeBron, Nance, and Thompson were all more attuned to short-range lob possibilities.

Forcing point guards onto LeBron is always good. It draws every eyeball. Remember when Thompson sprung Smith for an open triple with a nasty flare screen? It happened because literally every player on the court — including Smith’s man — stared at James lording over Rozier:

The NFL won’t stray from its regular rotation for the next round of Super Bowl host cities.

The league announced Wednesday it has awarded the 2023 Super Bowl to Arizona and the 2024 game to New Orleans.ravens_012

49ers take Kentavius Street despite torn ACL

Posted on by

When Trent Baalke was the General Manager of the 49ers, the team had a habit of taking players coming off serious injuries with the intent to “redshirt” them for a year before expecting on-field contributions.

Thus, it was a coup when the Chiefs traded Smith to the Washington Redskins for promising young cornerback Kendall Fuller—who had four interceptions and an opposing passer rating of just 55.0 last season, according to Pro Football Focus—as well as a third-round pick, which they used to trade up to add defensive end Breeland Speaks in Round 2.

Mahomes is a strong candidate to become a franchise quarterback, and he has a much higher ceiling as well as a much lower salary than Smith. The Kansas City defense is now in better shape, too. 

Anthony was initially drafted by the Saints with the 31st overall pick in the 2015 draft, but was traded to the Dolphins for a 2018 fifth-round pick. That pick wound up as No. 147 overall and property of the Rams, who used it to select linebacker Micah Kiser.

Anthony had 15 tackles in eight games for the Dolphins last season. He’ll try for better results this year in hopes of setting himself up for another contract.

The NFL said Thursday that it will review a 1996 sexual assault allegation against Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia.

In a statement, an NFL spokesman told CNN’s Jill Martin: We will review the matter with the club to understand the allegations and what the club has learned.

Robert Snell of the Detroit News wrote an article Wednesday regarding a 1996 sexual assault allegation that Patricia was indicted on. The former New England Patriots defensive coordinator was never tried.

Why Joe Namath thinks it’ll be ‘tough’ for Jets’ Sam Darnold to start in Week 1

Posted on by

When the Jets drafted quarterback Sam Darnold third overall last month, it marked the second-highest draft position for a quarterback in franchise history.

Two solo home runs by designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton had the Yankees up, 2-0, but the Red Sox answered with a pair of RBI singles to tie the game.

Left fielder Andrew Benintendi brought home second baseman and former Yankee Eduardo Nunez to make it 2-1 in the top of the fifth. Nunez reached on a wild pitch on a strike out to start the inning.

Strait was one of four AHL players within the Devils’ organization eligble for unrestricted free agency on July 1. Forwards Michael Latta, Bracken Kearns and Ben Thomson can all become UFAs if they don’t sign new deals by then.

Does Red Sox lineup vs. Yankees include Mookie Betts (shoulder)?

Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts will be in the lineup on Tuesday, batting leadoff when Boston opens a three-game series with the Yankees, according to manager Alex Cora.

Betts leads the majors with 13 home runs and a.355 batting average.

He left Boston’s 6-1 win against the Texas Rangers on Sunday after being hit with a throw in the shoulder while running the bases. sharks-009
