    The Cleveland Browns are looking to reward their loyal fans this year with an alcohol-related celebration.The team has partnered with Bud Light White Kevin Zeitler Jersey , an NFL sponsor, to place special “Victory Fridges” at FirstEnergy Stadium and in bars that have purchased the refrigerators. As soon as the Browns win a regular season game, the refrigerators will unlock, allowing fans to have a free Bud Light in celebration White Damarious Randall Jersey , as Andy Goeler, Bud Light’s vice president of marketing, explained to cleveland.com:Each “Victory Fridge” will hold approximately 200 aluminum 16-ounce bottles of Bud Light.The Browns have not won a regular season game since Christmas Eve of 2016, so Browns fans have grown accustomed to the practice of drowning away another defeat in alcohol http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-briean-boddy-calhoun-jersey , rather than celebrating a win.The first opportunity will come on Sept. 9, when the Browns open the season by hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Browns have lost 13 consecutive season openers since defeating the Baltimore Ravens in 2004, so whether or not the free beer flows that day remains to be seen.NFL Power Rankings: Browns’ first win gives them a boost in Week 4 Here is a summary of how the Cleveland Browns are viewed across mainstream media outlets in NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 4.CBS Sports - No. 26 (up 5 spots)SB Nation - No. 22 (up 5 spots)NFL.com - No. 20 (up 7 spots)MMQB - No. 24 (up 6 spots)Yahoo Sports - No. 26 (up 4 spots)Pro Football Focus - No. 28 (up 3 spots)Associated Press - No. 22 (up 4 spots)Listed below is a summary table of where teams in the AFC North are ranked this week.html { font-family:Calibri, Arial http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-derrick-kindred-jersey , Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size:11pt; background-color:white }table { border-collapse:collapse; page-break-after:always } .b { text-align:center }.e { text-align:center }.f { text-align:right }.inlineStr { text-align:left }.n { text-align:right }.s { text-align:left }td.style0 { vertical-align:bottom; border-bottom:none #000000; border-top:none #000000; border-left:none #000000; border-right:none #000000; color:#000000; font-family:'Calibri'; font-size:11pt; background-color:white }td.style1 { vertical-align:bottom; text-align:center; border-bottom:none #000000; border-top:none #000000; border-left:none #000000; border-right:none #000000; color:#FFFFFF; font-family:'Calibri'; font-size:11pt; background-color:#371B03 }td.style2 { vertical-align:bottom; text-align:center; border-bottom:none #000000; border-top:none #000000; border-left:none #000000; border-right:none #000000; font-weight:bold; color:#FFFFFF; font-family:'Calibri'; font-size:11pt; background-color:#371B03 }td.style3 { vertical-align:bottom; text-align:center; border-bottom:none #000000; border-top:none #000000; border-left:none #000000; border-right:none #000000; font-weight:bold; color:#FFFFFF; font-family:'Calibri'; font-size:11pt; background-color:#E26B0A }td.style4 { vertical-align:bottom; text-align:center; border-bottom:none #000000; border-top:none #000000; border-left:none #000000; border-right:none #000000; font-weight:bold; color:#000000; font-family:'Calibri'; font-size:11pt; background-color:white }td.style5 { vertical-align:bottom; text-align:center; border-bottom:none #000000; border-top:none #000000; border-left:none #000000; border-right:none #000000; color:#000000; font-family:'Calibri'; font-size:11pt; background-color:white }td.style6 { vertical-align:middle; text-align:center; border-bottom:none #000000; border-top:none #000000; border-left:none #000000; border-right:none #000000; color:#000000; font-family:'Calibri'; font-size:11pt; background-color:white }td.style7 { vertical-align:bottom; text-align:center; border-bottom:none #000000; border-top:none #000000; border-left:none #000000; border-right:none #000000; font-weight:bold; color:#FFFFFF; font-family:'Calibri'; font-size:11pt; background-color:#E26B0A }td.style8 { vertical-align:middle; text-align:center; border-bottom:none #000000; border-top:none #000000; border-left:none #000000; border-right:none #000000; font-weight:bold; color:#FFFFFF; font-family:'Calibri'; font-size:11pt; background-color:#E26B0A }table.sheet0 col.col0 { width:90.14444340999999pt }table.sheet0 col.col1 { width:60.32222152999999pt }table.sheet0 col.col2 { width:60.32222152999999pt }table.sheet0 col.col3 { width:60.32222152999999pt }table.sheet0 col.col4 { width:60.32222152999999pt }table.sheet0 tr { height:15pt }@page { left-margin: 0.7in; right-margin: 0.7in; top-margin: 0.75in; bottom-margin: 0.75in; }body { left-margin: 0.7in; right-margin: 0.7in; top-margin: 0.75in; bottom-margin: 0.75in; } Custom San Francisco 49ers Jerseys

    Get D in the Titans’ offense While the Titans have won three straight Authentic Logan Ryan Jersey , that doesn’t mean they are without problems. These days the run game doesn’t matter as much as it used to, but it hasn’t been able to get going in Tennessee. The logical explanation might be that the Titans have faced defensive lines such as the Eagles and Jaguars, two of the best in football, and the injuries to the tackles haven’t helped either.Still, on the ground, it hasn’t been a successful year for Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis, who are averaging a combined 32 yards per carry. It’s a bigger issue for Henry because he’s a liability in the passing game, only putting up 12 yards on 3 receptions. Lewis, on the other hand, is a much more reliable option in the passing game, and is coming off a 9-catch, 66-yard day against the Eagles. This is no longer a rushing league; Things have changed. When your team is trailing, you need to pass the ball, making Dion Lewis a much better fit for today’s NFL than Derrick Henry. Does that mean Tennessee should pull the plug on the Henry experiment and trade him? Not necessarily—not yet anyway—but Lewis, to me Womens DaQuan Jones Jersey , should be getting more touches in this offense.gamepass.nfl.comDevonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman were able to thrive together in 2016 (when LaFleur was an assistant with the Falcons) because both brought a lot to the passing game. To this point, Henry has brought nothing as a receiving back, while Lewis has been able to do that.Lewis’ quickness and shiftiness are massive for what Matt LaFleur wants to run. Here, Lewis is able to use his size and agility to make a 2nd and 12 turn into a 3rd and 1. Whereas the Eagles’ defense would crowd players in the box because they would know if a handoff to Henry was happening, Lewis’ versatility allows him to be schemed in the backfield, in the slot, or outside. gamepass.nfl.comLate in third quarter, the Titans trailed 17-3 when facing a 2nd and 22. This 17-yard play from Lewis was one of the biggest of the day; He’s one of the toughest backs to tackle due to his size and pad level, and spins by an ankle tackle to create 17 yards and give the Titans offense a much more manageable 3rd and 5. This was important because on the next play Marcus Mariota converted the first down on a 16-yard pass to Tajae Sharpe. You don’t call Henry in on these plays unless you want to get some chunk yardage. Sure, Lewis got chuck yardage here, if by “chunk” you mean 17 of the 22 yards needed to convert a first down on 2nd and 22. You want Lewis over Henry in moments where the team is trailing because of his superior receiving ability.Finally, let’s not forget the most important play of the entire game. 4th and, head coach Mike Vrabel can elect to play for the tie and kick a field goal with less than 1:20 left, or he can go for the win and convert the 4th down. Vrabel chooses wisely and picks the latter option, and LaFleur puts Lewis in the driver’s seat.gamepass.nfl.comFirst of all Authentic Will Compton Jersey , this is a phenomenal, gutsy call from Vrabel that has no doubt earned him well deserved praise and has made him a possible candidate for Coach of the Year. Second, plays like this show you how much the Titans respect Lewis in these situations. While getting the first down itself was easy, it’s what he does after that makes it count. Lewis spins and breaks by a tackler while using blockers to pick up even more than a simple first down conversion.Eventually, this set up the game winning touchdown from Mariota to Corey Davis.While the backfield has faced some tough tests, one thing remains clear: Dion Lewis is the better player than Derrick Henry. Henry is a big, powerful back with an excellent cutback ability, but as a receiver he adds little and has yet to impress this season outside of a certain touchdown run that was called back due to holding. Lewis has also had his issues as a runner, but his receiving ability has not disappointed. Henry certainly offers value late in the game with the lead, but very little when Tennessee is trailing. Whether leading or trailing, Dion Lewis adds value. The Titans model their offense on a quick scheme that favors yards after the catch, and there’s little doubt that Lewis fits that mold perfectly. And yet, it feels like he’s not getting the ball as much as he should.I’ve said in the past that Lewis is a game changer for the Titans offense, and he has been this season. Eventually the coaching staff should recognize who the more reliable player is and use both in the situations that put them at their best. Henry should be used to pound the rock in the red zone and late in the game with the lead, while Lewis needs to be featured on all three downs more prominently.In short http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/corey-davis-jersey , feed Dion Lewis.Titans Camp Battles: Starting Left Guard The Titans offense is largely set as the team gets ready to head in to training camp later this month. The one significant role that could be an exception is left guard. Quinton Spain has been the starter there for the last two seasons and has largely been very good in that role. His PFF grades of 82.3 and 73.6 have landed among the top half of starting guards in the league. However, the Titans decision to only give Spain the right of first refusal level RFA tender — the lowest tender option available to them — seemed to signal that perhaps his spot wasn’t quite as secure as most had thought.Adding to the mystery over the direction of the left guard spot was the Titans signing two additional players who have extensive starting experience at that exact position in Kevin Pamphile and Xavier Su’a-Filo. Pamphile also has a contract that pays up to $2.25M for this season with $850K of that being incentives. If he reaches the max of that deal, it would pay him more than the 1-year tender that Spain is currently playing on. While the terms of those incentives have not been reported, one could assume that number of starts might be a sensible basis for triggering some of that money. A 4th guard with NFL experience could also find himself in the mix as well. Cody Wichmann was a 2015 6th round pick of the Rams and earned 18 starts over 2 seasons there. He was in Rams camp in 2017 under offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur, but ended up falling short of the 53-man roster. He caught on shortly thereafter with the Titans practice squad and spent the year there. He showed enough to be brought back on a futures contract at the end of last season. Spending camp under LaFleur just a year ago should give Wichmann a head start on understanding the offensive playbook and what his coaches will be looking for on each play. Rounding out the competition is 2017 6th round pick Corey Levin and 2017 UDFA Tyler Marz. Levin has no NFL experience, but he does have a skill set that seems to fit very well in the zone blocking scheme the Titans are expected to employ under LaFleur. Levin was used primarily at center during camp last year so he could end up getting some work there again this year. Marz (pronounced MARE-its) is technically listed on the Titans roster as a tackle, but he got some reps with the first team offense at guard in the preseason last year. His brief audition didn’t get him a spot on the 53-man roster, but he’s back for another camp this year and it’s possible that we see him get in the mix at guard.Below are some of the key metrics for each player. Left Guard CompetitionPlayerSpainPamphileSu'a-FiloWichmannLevinMarzPlayerSpainPamphileSu'a-FiloWichmannLevinMarzWith the transition to a zone blocking scheme, the movement skills of offensive linemen become more critical. As a group, these guys all qualify as what I would consider above average athletes for the position with the exception of Marz. The 40-yard dash is generally over-used, but nowhere is that more true than at an interior offensive line position. However, the 20-yard shuttle and the 3-cone drill are generally good for measuring a lineman’s quickness in small spaces. According to mockdraftable.com, the average times for interior linemen in those drills are 4.74s and 7.81s, respectively. Su’a-Filo blew away the 20-yard shuttle, but the others were all right about average. Every player in the group besides Spain and Marz were well above average when it comes to the 3-cone drill. It should also be noted that all of these measurements were taken quite some time ago (especially for the 26 and 27-year olds) so these guys may have improved their athleticism since entering the NFL and getting to focus on training year-round.Spain is pretty clearly the most accomplished of the group based on his very good work as a full-time starter over the past two seasons and I would consider him the clear favorite until proven otherwise http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/kamalei-correa-jersey , but his competition has some advantages. Both Pamphile and Su’a-Filo come from teams who use a lot of zone runs and Wichmann has at least an offseason and a half worth of time working in a Matt LaFleur-led offense. Spain has played in what was primarily a power/gap style running game. While I believe he is athletic enough to successfully transition to a primarily outside zone scheme, he has yet to have the opportunity to prove it. I’m sure the team would love for Levin to make a push, considering he is the youngest of the group and under contract through the 2020 season on a cheap rookie contract. Wichmann and Marz are both on cheap deals through 2019, but Spain, Pamphile, and Su’a-Filo are all on the final year of their current deals. Given the Titans upcoming cap situation, getting a guy like Levin to become a key contributor — particularly for the 2019 and 2020 seasons — would really help free up some cap space for other high dollar extensions for guys like Marcus Mariota, Kevin Byard, and Taylor Lewan. Once camp opens we will quickly get a feel for exactly how “open” this competition really is. Will Spain be getting all of the reps with the 1’s or will they be mixing in some of these other guys with the first unit? Is Corey Levin working at center or guard? How much work does Pamphile get as a potential Conklin fill-in at right tackle as compared with left guard? The answers to those questions will give us little hints about where these guys stand in the competition for this position. If I had to guess today, I would say that the starting line to start the season will be Lewan/Spain/Jones/Kline/Pamphile with Pamphile returning to the bench once Conklin returns from his injury, but we will know much more in the next few weeks. Who is your favorite to win this camp battle?

    which means Navy Jayon Brown Jersey , we get to look forward to the Titans’ week 1 matchup on the road against the Miami Dolphins.For this piece, I will be breaking down a key player on the Dolphins’ offense, which happens to be the newcomer Albert Wilson, previously with the Kansas City Chiefs. Wilson signed a three-year contract with the Dolphins in the offseason, and is expected to have a significant role in Miami’s offense. Behind guys like Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, Wilson had 42 catches for 554 yards and three touchdowns. Now, several Titans fans I’ve talked to don’t really value Wilson’s presence on Miami’s receiving corps; In other words, he’s being underestimated. But with fourth-year wideout DeVante Parker being sidelined for week 1 in addition to struggling for most of his career, Wilson will start the season opener and is a receiver Tennessee needs to look out for.Let’s get to the tape.gamepass.nfl.comIn Miami, Wilson is essentially the underneath replacement for now Cleveland Brown receiver Jarvis Landry. It’s highly unlikely that Wilson ever sees the large target shares that Landry had with the Dolphins, but Wilson is the quicker, faster alternative. This is especially apparent in the screen game, where Wilson was a big piece for the Chiefs in 2017.Chiefs head coach Andy Reid loved putting Wilson in bunch formations, and it sounds like Dolphins coach Adam Gase is going to do the same. Wilson is the main target on this play in a bunch set. The other two receivers are there to block for him while the left tackle also goes into the open field to provide additional insurance. This play doesn’t look like much from Wilson since it relies more on the execution of the blocks, but it’s important to note his speed on the play. As long as he gets blockers in the open field, he’ll be able to do the rest and pick up yards after the catch.According to Football Outsiders Youth Austin Johnson Jersey , Albert Wilson was the most valuable screen receiver in regards to the replacement level in 2017, leading all screen receiver in Defensive-adjusted Yards Above Replacement with 51 DYAR in this area. This is an area the Dolphins look to exploit on Sunday against the Titans, as Wilson is basically a monster in the underneath game.But Wilson is more than just a screen receiver, giving him a little versatility on the line of scrimmage.gamepass.nfl.comAgainst the Broncos in week 17, Wilson formed a strong bond with the new starting quarterback for the Chiefs in Patrick Mahomes, In that game, Wilson caught 10 passes for 147 yards and was a key contributor on Kansas City’s game winning drive.This clip is not from said drive, but it illustrates how good of a route runner Wilson is. He’s running a simple curl route, but what makes it impressive is just how smoothly he executes it. He cuts inside against the slot defender to start off, putting the defensive back on skates as he comes back to the ball. What’s important about his route is how Wilson is able to space himself far enough that the slot defender has no shot (and let’s be honest it isn’t even close) at disrupting the pass.It’s not the kind of splash play you’d expect from a receiver like Antonio Brown or DeAndre Hopkins, but it illustrates how near flawlessly Wilson has the fundamentals down as a receiver.gamepass.nfl.comHere, Wilson gets to show off some of his athleticism. Again, he’s the screen receiver in a bunch formation, but this time the results look a little more impressive. Once Wilson sees a gap to go through, he accelerates and gets the first down with ease. But he doesn’t stop there, eluding the defensive back #27 with a nice cut to pick up additional yards after the catch.gamepass.nfl.comOn this play Navy Josh Kline Jersey , Wilson runs a simple jerk route, where the receiver looks to be running a shallow crossing route before cutting back outside. This is effective when you want to isolate a receiver onto a linebacker, like so in the play above. Andy Reid disguises this as a pick play and instead schemes Wilson open with the jerk route. Despite Mahomes’ throw being behind, Wilson adjusts and cuts the corner, getting a first down in the process.Finally, Wilson can on occasion make the spectacular play. gamepass.nfl.comThis is an excellent catch. Wilson not only displays the tenacity and catch radius advantage on the defensive back, but manages to keep both feet in bounds close to the sideline. There’s not much else to say on this except for “Wow what a catch!”Simply put, Wilson is a threat the Titans need to watch out for. He is an extremely effective receiver underneath when asked to work in the flat, run screens, run shallow crossing routes and run jerk routes. He’s also a guy that can contribute in the intermediate passing game, as highlighted in that week 17 matchup at Denver. To conclude, as slot receivers go, Wilson is pretty good, and needs to be surveyed by the Titans defense in DeVante Parker’s absence, as he’s a new piece in a Dolphins offense trying to turn the corner. Rishard Matthews, who is coming off a knee injury Youth Corey Davis Jersey , played only 54 snaps in the first two games combined. The Titans wideout is ready for more.“I don’t know,” Matthews said when asked if he was getting enough reps and opportunities, via Terry McCormick of titaninsider.com. “Not enough, in my opinion.”Matthews, who made 118 receptions in his first two seasons with the Titans, has caught two of the four passes thrown his way for 8 yards. He didn’t start either game, and his only touch in the opener was a punt he returned 18 yards when Adoree Jackson injured his shoulder.Among the Titans’ receivers and tight ends, only Jonnu Smith has seen fewer targets than Matthews. “I feel like I’m 100 percent,” Matthews said.New offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur has encouraged Matthews to be patient. Matthews’ time is coming.鈥淚 think he’s coming along,” LaFleur said. “We’re giving him a little bit more each and every week. He’s a veteran guy. He’s smart. Just because he wasn’t out here practicing in OTAs and the beginning of camp doesn’t mean he wasn’t engaged. He was certainly engaged. He’s coming along nicely, and hopefully, we can get him more and more as this season progresses.”

    The Eagles have already made several roster moves since “finalizing” their 53-man roster and filling their 10-man practice squad http://www.authenticsphiladelphiaeagles.com/cheap-zach-ertz-jersey , and on Saturday, we learned the team is reportedly adding wide receiver Braxton Miller to the PS pending a physical. Miller is a former third-round draft pick out of Ohio State, and after two seasons with the Houston Texans, was released just ahead of the regular season. The wideout was a quarterback in college, and while he always had the athleticism to play a skill position, he wasn’t forced into the move until suffering a shoulder injury in 2014.Following his injury, he made the move to an h-back position for the Buckeyes, and was often used in wildcat formations when he returned to the field in 2015. He didn’t put up a ton of crazy stats that season, but with a few highlight-worthy plays, his potential was obvious.Miller didn’t have the best situation when he was drafted by Houston Youth Derek Barnett Jersey , especially as a young player at his position. With quarterback controversies and poor play stifling the Texans offense the past couple years, the receiver wasn’t able develop into the playmaker he should be. A number of injuries and setbacks also affected his production in Texas, but he’s healthy and ready to get back to work.So what should you know about the receiver heading into his third season? 1.He’s quick and agileMiller was far too talented to call it a career after his shoulder injury, and he showed off some of his agility and quick feet during the 2016 NFL Combine. He ran a 4.50 second 40-yard dash, and was a top performer in the 3-cone drill (6.65 sec), 20-yard shuttle (4.07 sec), and 60-yard dash (10.84).One NFC executive at the combine said of Miller, “He’s going to go by at least the third round because of his speed and athleticism. He’s got some traits that will get him drafted early and a team will worry about coaching him up after they get him in.” The problem, was that Miller ended up being drafted by the Texans and lacked the sort of veteran position group and top-tier position coaching that he will have with the Eagles. Being able to train alongside Mike Wallace and Alshon Jeffery should go a long way in finally helping Miller take the next step in his development.2. After-the-catch yardageMiller rushed for more than 1,000 yards in 2012 and 2013 when he was still a quarterback for the Buckeyes Color Rush Destiny Vaeao Jersey , and while he doesn’t quite have the size to be a running back in the NFL, he does have the elusiveness to make defenders miss in the open field and take it to the house.In his rookie season with Houston, Miller suited up for 10 games and nabbed 15 receptions. Of the 99 receiving yards in 2016, 49 of those were after the catch, and then again in 2017, 71 of his 162 receiving yards came after catch.He’s the kind of player that is super fun to watch because anything can happen once he gets the ball in his hands.3. He’s got some special teams experienceI don’t think Miller’s big contribution will be on special teams, but he’s shown that he is capable of contributing on punt and kick returns. He fielded three kickoffs his rookie season for 41 yards, and a 17-yard long run, and three punt returns in 2017 for 12 yards and five fair catches.4. Special play contributionsWith his quarterback experience, he would also be the perfect player to help the offense when Doug Pederson calls fun plays like the Philly Special and Philly Philly. Not that Nelson Agholor’s throw in Week 1 wasn’t effective Color Rush Corey Graham Jersey , but it doesn’t hurt having someone with a proven history making plays like that in the Eagles’ arsenal. 5. Can read a defenseMiller wasn’t just a college quarterback, he was a great college quarterback. He essentially served as Ohio State’s starting QB and a running back during his sophomore season, claiming 3,310 total offensive yards that year.All of this is to say that he has a unique perspective when reading defenses. He’s able to see the field, identify running lanes, and is a real monster in the open field. At 6’1, 215 pounds, he’s got the size to win contested catches, and just needs to work on sharpening up his route running.With a different view of a defense, and his ability to read defenses and maximize his yards after catch http://www.authenticsphiladelphiaeagles.com/cheap-rodney-mcleod-jersey , Braxton Miller has a very ceiling that he hasn’t even come close to reaching yet.NFL Picks Against the Spread 2018: Week 5 Games Before the fifth Sunday of the 2018 NFL regular season kicks off, let’s have some fun by taking a look at the spreads for today’s games.

The Bills, meanwhile, HAVE looked terrible outside of their surprising Week 3 upset effort in Minnesota. Maybe the Bills manage to catch the Titans off guard after Tennessee’s emotional overtime win but I can’t simply count on Josh Allen to come through. PICK: Titans -5.5Atlanta Falcons at Pittsburgh Steelers (-3): The Steelers have some real issues both on and off the field. I don’t like the way they’ve been trending. I also think the Falcons aren’t as bad as their 1-3 record indicates. Atlanta is really banged up, which doesn’t help their chances, and it’s hard to imagine the Steelers dropping three games in a row at Heinz Field. But screw it, I’ll take the points. PICK: Falcons +3Denver Broncos (-1.5) at New York Jets: 21-year-old Sam Darnold is going through some growing pains as the Jets have failed to win since Week 1. Case Keemun is going through some predictable struggles as he’s failed to complete a touchdown pass since Week 1. In the battle of these two strugglers Youth DeAndre Carter Jersey , I’m going to take the home team. Denver is playing on a short week and they’re traveling east. PICK: Jets +1.5Green Bay Packers (-1) at Detroit Lions: This line hasn’t changed since it opened. I think this will be close. The Lions have shown good fight lately. But I’m not about to bet against Aaron Rodgers in a game that’s essentially a pick’ em. PICK: Packers -1Baltimore Ravens (-3) at Cleveland Browns: John Harbaugh’s Ravens rank fifth overall in DVOA through four weeks. Joe Flacco is looking better than he has in what feels like a long time. I like the way the Browns have battled so far but it seems like they find a new way to lose each week. They’re just not there yet. PICK: Ravens -3New York Giants at Carolina Panthers (-6.5): The Panthers should be well-rested coming off a Week 4 bye. The Giants should be well-ineffective as ever with a washed-up quarterback under center. Also completely unsurprising to see Odell Beckham Jr. talking about this New York team having motivational issues with Pat Shurmur as their leader. PICK: Panthers -6.5Miami Dolphins at Cincinnati Bengals: This Bengals squad isn’t getting a lot of hype but they’re good. Cincy ranks seventh in DVOA. Miami, meanwhile, got exposed on the road last week. Hard to count on them. PICK: Bengals -6Oakland Raiders at Los Angeles Chargers (-5): The Bolts almost found a way to lose to C.J. Beathard last Sunday. Not encouraging. LAC will have to deal with another stadium takeover this weekend as Raider fans show up in droves to root on the Silver and Black. At the very least, I think this will be close. I don’t have a lot of trust in Jon Gruden but is Anthony Lynn really any better? PICK: Raiders +5Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers (-3): C.J. Beathard played better than expected last week. I’m not just going to count on it happening again. The Cards are very bad but there’s at least a little bit of hope for them now with Josh Rosen under center instead of Sam Bradford. I’ll say the rookie quarterback impresses this week. PICK: Cardinals +3Los Angeles Rams (-7.5) at Seattle Seahawks: Damn. I know the Rams’ offense is really good and the 2018 Seahawks are far from the 2013 Seahawks but it’s still kinda crazy to see Seattle big home underdogs like this. It’s tempting to take the points but how can I go with Brian Schottenheimer over LA’s offense? PICK: Rams -7.5Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles (-3): Big game. The battle of two early season disappointments. Both sides have legitimate reasons for concern. One big thing working in the Eagles’ favor is their home field advantage. Philly is 17-2 in their last 19 meaningful games at Lincoln Financial Field, as we know. The Vikings’ passing attack figures to challenge the Eagles’ leaky secondary but Minnesota’s offensive line should struggle to hold up against the pass rush. The Eagles are winning this one. PICK: Eagles -3Dallas Cowboys (-3) at Houston Texans: Interestingly enough, the Texans rank 13th in DVOA despite being 1-3 and their one win coming by three points in overtime. Maybe Houston is due for some progression to the mean. I was originally going to take Dallas but I’m going to go with the analytics here. Don’t let me down, nerds. PICK: Texans +3Washington Redskins at New Orleans Saints (-6): I’d stay away from this game because this Washington team seems kind of unpredictable. I could just as easily see them getting beat comfortably by the Saints as I could see them getting an upset coming off their bye. I’ll tentatively lean with the home side here because I think they’re hitting their stride after some early season hiccups. PICK: Saints -6

    The Philadelphia Eagles were defeated by the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Jason Kelce Jersey , 23-21. Here’s a look at some things we learned from their second loss in a row. 1 - The Eagles can’t stop shooting themselves in the footOne of the most frustrating things about these kind of losses is that there’s no one simple fix. The Eagles just aren’t executing properly, especially in big moments.Some notable examples: Wendell Smallwood drops a wide open third down conversion that would’ve set up 1st-and-goal. Jay Ajayi fumbles in the red zone. The Eagles fail to score after recovering a fumble at Vikings’ 30-yard line. Carson Wentz is strip-sacked on a drive that finally starts to look promising and it lands into the arms of a defender. As much as people don’t like to admit it, there’s a lot of luck involved in football. By that,mean not everything is always in your favorite’s teams control. That’s not to let the Eagles off the hook. But I don’t think it’s like this team needs drastic, sweeping changes. They just need to execute better. That’s boring and simple to say but they really just need to get out of their own way. These self-inflicted wounds are killer. It’s frustrating to see the Eagles continue to beat themselves, especially when you can’t help but feel like this group is capable of being better.2 - Doug Pederson continues to make some questionable decisionsNitpicking play-calling is an easy thing to do. No head coach is always going to call the perfect game.With that qualifier in place, Doug Pederson made an egregiously questionable decision on 3rd-and-inches early in the game. For some reason the Eagles ran a misdirection toss play to Josh Adams. The undrafted rookie free agent was predictably stopped for a loss. Why ask your least shifty back to try to make defenders miss in that situation? Why not go for a quarterback sneak when that play has been so money for the Eagles in the past? Maybe the Eagles are trying to protect Wentz in those situations. Another big one that will be discussed coming out of this game is Pederson’s decision to take a five-yard penalty and punt with 9:17 remaining in the fourth quarter instead of trying for a 57-yard field goal. I don’t think it’s fair to assume Jake Elliott would’ve 100% made that kick. But maybe it was worth a try. There didn’t appear to be any find based on the idle flags at the top of the uprights. I did like Pederson’s decision to go for the two-point conversion following Philadelphia’s first touchdown score. Even if the Eagles don’t get it, it’s still a one-possession game. It would’ve looked real smart if the Eagles could’ve scored a touchdown after that Bradham recovery. But alas, it wasn’t meant to be.3 - It’s fair to wonder how much the Eagles miss Frank Reich and John DeFilippoPrior to last year’s meaningless Week 17 game against Dallas, the Eagles were averaging 30.5 points per game. The Eagles scored at least 30 points in nine of their 16 regular season games. This year has been a much different story. The Eagles have only scored 20.6 points per game. That ranks 27th in the league. Philadelphia is JUST above being a bottom-five offense. That’s bad. I don’t think you can point to the absence of Frank Reich and John DeFilippo as the sole reason why the Eagles are struggling. Philadelphia has obviously had to deal with a number of offensive injuries. And the reality is the Eagles were always due to regress a little after being so good last year.But I think it’s fair to say the losses of Reich and Flip do factor into the equation. I also think it’s fair to question if the Eagles did an adequate job of trying to replace them. Were Mike Groh and Press Taylor truly the best candidates out there?Losing both Reich and Flip in the same year was tough.4 - The offensive line is still a big issueThe numbers aren’t pretty.The move to bench Stefen Wisniewski for Isaac Seumalo looked questionable from the jump as the latter immediately allowed a lot of pressure on Wentz. Seumalo seemed to settle in a bit after that but I don’t know that he’s really better than Wis.Lane Johnson really appears to be on his 2009 Cole Hamels bullshit. For those unfamiliar with baseball, Hamels was the Phillies’ World Series MVP in 2008. Then he came back and really struggled in 2009. He admitted he got complacent and didn’t work as hard after winning a championship. You can’t handle but wonder if that same issue is impacting Johnson. Johnson was just SO good in 2017. He only allowed one sack the entire season. Contrast that to how Johnson has allowed two strip sacks in the past two weeks. Those turnovers have led to 10 points for the opposition. To his credit, Johnson held himself accountable after the game. He’s not dodging responsibility. But talk is cheap. Moving forward he needs to be accountable with his actions and stop underperforming. 5 - The defense is not without blameIt’s hard to completely kill Jim Schwartz’s defense when you consider they only allowed 16 points (remember that seven of Minnesota’s point came on a defensive touchdown). That’s not a terrible outing.But the Eagles easily could’ve surrendered 22 points if Dan Bailey didn’t miss two easy field goals. Schwartz’s unit is just making it look too easy for opposing quarterbacks. In the past two games, Marcus Mariota and Kirk Cousins have combined for 60/80 (75% completion), 645 yards (8.1 average), 4 TD Cheap DeAndre Carter Jersey , 1 INT, and a 98.8 passer rating. Jalen Mills got beat for another explosive play today. Sidney Jones allowed a completion every time he was targeted and also missed two tackles (per Pro Football Focus). The pass rush did hit Cousins 11 times but they only sacked him once. There’s plenty of blame to go around with this team and the defense shouldn’t be totally absolved. 6 - Carson Wentz isn’t quite ALL the way back, but there continue to be encouraging signsOn one hand, Wentz’s numbers from his last two starts look pretty good: 57/85 (67.1% completion), 659 yards (7.8 average), 4 TD, 0 INT, 105.9 passer rating. He’s managed to do all this despite dealing with a lot of drops and breakdowns in pass protection. On the other hand, there’s still room for Wentz to improve. He’s to blame for some of the hits and sacks he’s taking. It doesn’t seem like he has his full range of mobility due to how he’s been getting caught in the backfield after holding on to the ball too long at times. And given how the entire offense is struggling in general, it’s hard to say he’s completely blameless in everything.With that said, there’s reason to be encouraged about how Wentz has performed. It’s hard to feel super great about the Eagles right now but things would be even worse if they didn’t have a legitimate answer at quarterback. There’s your silver lining. 7 - It’s easy to be frustrated with the refsLet’s be clear: the Eagles didn’t lose this game because of poor officiating. The Eagles only have themselves to blame for this loss.But it’s certainly frustrating to see a bullshit penalty like the one called on Michael Bennett have such a big impact on the game. Bennett didn’t dive into Cousins’ knee. The replay clearly shows Bennett first contacting Cousins’ butt (last I checked, the butt is above the knee) and then GENTLY bringing him down. Penalty!That was killer. Instead of facing 3rd-and-14 at the Eagles’ 39-yard line, the Vikings received a first down at the 11-yard line. Maybe the Viking have to settle for a field goal instead of getting a touchdown. Maybe Dan Bailey misses the kick entirely like he did with two others. Or maybe the Vikings would’ve scored a touchdown anyway. Impossible to say for sure.Anyway, the teaching point here for the Eagles is that they can’t let games be close enough where a bad call can have such a big impact. They need to give themselves more room for error.8 - The Eagles need to quickly put this behind themThe Eagles’ next game is a Thursday Night Football matchup against the New York Giants, who dropped to 1-4 earlier today. The Eagles will begin preparing for this matchup as soon as tomorrow. No rest for the wicked.The Eagles really need to win on Thursday. 3-3 is a lot better than 2-4. It won’t be easy if they continue to be plagued by the issues currently bothering them. I’m still not ready to give up on this team. But the season outlook obviously continues to get worse with each passing loss. The moment in the spotlight isn't over yet for a Philadelphia Eagles fan who stumbled into fame as a viral video star after running into a subway pillar earlier this year.Jigar Desai is now the subject of an NFL digital short feature Womens Ronald Darby Jersey , shot ahead of the Eagles game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on Oct. 28. In the short, he's surprised with tickets for himself, his wife and two kids to attend the game in England."From 'mind the pillars' to 'Mind the Gap' ...London, here we come!" Desai said Friday.Back in January, Desai, sporting a Brian Dawkins jersey, was trying to rally subway passengers for the NFC Championship game against the Minnesota Vikings. He was filmed running alongside the train on the platform, and then all of a sudden slamming into a pole and bumping off the train.Passenger video of his fan fail took off on social media, prompting everything from Philly sports pride to general mockery."At the end of it all, if you are going to have a knucklehead moment caught on camera from two angles, then it better have results," said Desai, who works as a consultant with a life sciences and health care company.With the Eagles going on to win the first Super Bowl and Dawkins being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, "I couldn't have scripted a better ending," he said.Folks with the NFL reached out to him in the spring about the video project and last weekend they went to his home in the Philadelphia suburbs to do some filming Womens Jake Elliott Jersey , he said."The piece focused on him and his love of the Eagles," said Brenna Webb, spokeswoman for NFL Media, of the short film. The eight-minute video will roll out on NFL digital and social media platforms next week, she said.The filmmakers said they told him they wanted to see the pillar and they took the subway to the scene of the injury, the Ellsworth-Federal stop on the Broad Street subway line. That's when Desai said he noticed Eagles cheerleaders, Swoop the mascot and a Mummers string band gathered around the pole for a celebration. Swoop presented him and his family with the tickets to London."It was a total surprise, and as a dad, it was so great to be there with my kids. My youngest always says 'So you hit a pole. So what?'" he said.Hitting the pole meant more than you would think to 43-year-old Desai. A new tradition was now born. Two weeks later, an hour before the Super Bowl game between the Eagles and Patriots, Desai had what he called a "ceremonious" yet safe "run-in with a post at home to keep the positive mojo going." He's vowed to do that for every future Eagles playoff game.And what does he want folks to take away from the great pole collision of 2018?"Platform 9 戮 is not at the Ellsworth Station and I'm starting to think this whole Harry Potter thing is fiction," he jokes. "It's been a wild ride and a long 15 minutes and I've enjoyed every minute of it."

  • NFL Power Rankings Roundup:Datum13.02.2019 06:39

    Eagles drop out of the top five With Week 2 of the NFL season in the books Philadelphia Eagles T-Shirt , it’s time look at how various media outlets have ranked the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in their NFL power rankings. It’s always interesting to see how the Eagles stack up from an outside perspective. But first, let’s start by revisiting my rankings.Bleeding Green Nation7) Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 1) - The reigning Super Bowl champions take a hit after losing a winnable game. Jim Schwartz’s defense is just clearly not as good on the road as it is in the confines of Lincoln Financial Field. The good news for the Eagles is they get Carson Wentz back this week. He can certainly help the Eagles get back on track. Or, that’s the hope, at least. (LW: 1)SB Nation7) The Patriots and Eagles fell in this week’s rankings, though not too far. The Eagles can look forward to Carson Wentz’s return on Sunday, which should offer a big boost to the team. (LW: 3)ESPN5) The Eagles are allowing a league-best 2.85 yards per rush and 58.5 yards per game. They also are posting a league-best 1.34 yards allowed before first contact per rush. (LW: 1)NFL.com8) Held fast with the Eagles at No. 1 until they lost, but now, they drop. This is not an overreaction to the defeat in Tampa, either. Most of us thought Carson Wentz would already have game action by now. (He’ll finally get the nod in Week 3.) No one foresaw the spate of injuries at wide receiver and running back. With Nelson Agholor bumped up to No. 1 WR and the offense going to its new TE2 (Joshua Perkins) more than expected -- thanks to the blanketing of Zach Ertz -- the air game is not anywhere close to championship level. Prior to Week 2, I would have said the Colts’ defense, which is coming up on Sunday, would be the perfect antidote for what’s ailing Philly, but then Indy went and did a number on the Redskins. (LW: 1)Yahoo Sports6) In these rankings I often give teams a pass for playing with their backup quarterback. Just because Nick Foles got hot last postseason for a couple games doesn’t mean the Eagles don’t deserve the same benefit of the doubt. Now that Carson Wentz is back Philadelphia Eagles Hats , we can start to see what the 2018 Eagles really are. (LW: 4)CBS Sports 10) They might get Carson Wentz back this week, which they need. But they have other issues that showed up against Tampa Bay. (LW: 4)Sporting News7) They face Vikes, Panthers, Jags in October, so good idea to let Carson Wentz get feet wet now before diving into deep end of defensive pool. (LW: 1)Washington Post8) Carson Wentz returns to reclaim his starting job at QB with the defending champs coming off a perplexing loss in Tampa. The Eagles look to rebound with a home game Sunday against a Colts team that probably is not as good as it looked this past weekend at FedEx Field. (LW: 1)Bleacher Report6) Well, the Philadelphia Eagles were finally able to get the offense going Sunday in Tampa. The Eagles piled up 412 total yards against the Buccaneers, with quarterback Nick Foles accounting for 334 of them with a touchdown pass. The problem is that by the time the Eagles got the offense going, the team was down 27-7, and while Philadelphia made a game of it, its comeback attempt came up short. We knew the Eagles would be stout against the run in 2018 after leading the NFL in that regard a year ago. The question was how a young Eagles secondary would hold up. Against a nova-hot Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday, the answer to that question was that it didn’t—the Eagles were roasted to the tune of 402 passing yards and four touchdowns. This wasn’t a fluke. The Eagles were flat-out outplayed by the Buccaneers. And while the loss wasn’t solely (or even mostly) Foles’ fault, talk radio in Philly will be full of calls for Carson Wentz to get back out there in the coming days.Mile High Report13) Oh how the mighty have fallen. Funny isn’t it? Foles poops in his helmet 2 straight weeks, but this time they lose and miracle upon miracle Philadelphia Eagles Hoodie , Carson Wentz is suddenly healed! He must have bathed in the Healing Waters of Lourdes or something. Player safety my ass. They’ll roll him out there with duct tape on his knee just to try to get a W. Prove you look good to get out of this unlucky spot. Until then, you’re just about middle of the pack.Reddit6) It was ugly from the first play, and didn’t get any better. Fortunately for the Eagles, the prodigal son, Carson Wentz, is set to return in week 3. That will hopefully re-energize an otherwise malaised team. (LW: 1)numberFire3) No explanation (LW: 1)ANALYSISThe rankings range from as high as 3 to as low as 13. The most common rankings are 6 and 7. The average ranking is 7.2, which is down nearly five spots from last week’s average of 2.4.The Eagles have mostly fallen out of the top five after their loss to the Bucs, which is fair. There’s still optimism about the team moving forward with Carson Wentz back, though.The Eagles have a chance to stop the bleeding and get back on track with a win over the Colts this weekend. A loss will send them spiraling out of the top 10 entirely. The Eagles are on their way to London to face the Jaguars on Sunday, and when they get across the pond, they’ll have some pretty sweet new gear waiting for them in the locker room at Wembley Stadium: An official Starter jacket.Now sure, the exterior is nice enough as is, complete with the OG Kelly Green logo Cheap Customized Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys , and the British Flag on the right sleeve, but the interior is really a work of art. With notable London landmarks covering the inner-liner, there are also three patches that adorn the inner left flap, including one celebrating Starter’s inception in 1971, one honoring the Eagles 2018 matchup, and one noting the designer Brian Begley.This marks the first time the team from Philadelphia has played in the international series, and they are seemingly making the most out of their trip. They have team veterans, like Brent Celek and Jon Dorenbos, taking in the sights as both fans and team reps, and are providing the players with at least one very cool souvenir.Begley also designed Starter jackets for the Seahawks-Raiders London game a few weeks ago, and explained a little bit about the interior design on his Instagram.The team will at least be heading home on Monday with some fly new gear — let’s just hope the gear is in addition to a much-needed win.

  • Here Are The Details Of Benardrick Datum13.02.2019 04:07
    Thema von laiyongcai92 im Forum Gilden Events

    McKinney’s Contract Extension Last week http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/ryan-griffin-jersey , the Houston Texans announced they had extended the contract of inside linebacker Benardrick McKinney for an additional five years. The run game clubbing, quarterback devouring blitzer is a very good football player, so it makes total sense for him to stay in Houston even after his rookie deal is completed. What wasn’t announced were the contract details. How much will McKinney be paid this year? How much will he count against salary cap in 2018 and going forward? When could Houston cut him if things don’t go right? How will the signing bonus be spread out? This morning Authentic Lamar Miller Jersey , the contract details were announced on Over The Cap.The majority of McKinney’s bonus will be paid to him in 2018 in conjuction with the final year of his cheap rookie contract. If things go south, Houston can save cap space if they cut B-Mac by 2020, although the amount saved won’t be enough for this to be really a possibility until 2021. McKinney’s cap number for 2018 is $7.7 million. As plainly as possible Authentic Jadeveon Clowney Jersey , this is a good deal for a good player. It’s going to be fun to watch him mash against Derrick Henry and Leonard Fournette for the next few seasons.2018 College Football Live: Week Three This weekend in college football, several cancellations took place after Hurricane Florence knocked some games off the schedule.

    They were still in the race for a wild card http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-cliff-pennington-jersey , but after trading outfielder Tommy Pham to Tampa Bay, they didn’t seem like a team that was on the verge of making a serious run at the postseason.Then the Cardinals began playing some of their best baseball of the year.St. Louis is 14-4 this month, and even after a loss to Milwaukee on Sunday, the Cardinals are just four games behind the division-leading Cubs. Philadelphia (68-56) and Colorado (68-56) lead the race for the National League wild cards, with Milwaukee (69-57) percentage points behind and St. Louis only a half-game back.The Cardinals took advantage of a soft spot in their schedule, beating up on the Marlins and Royals earlier this month. But over the past week, they also went 5-2 against the Nationals and Brewers. So far in August, St. Louis leads the NL in batting average, on-base percentage and ERA. Matt Carpenter has hit 14 home runs since the All-Star break and leads the NL with 33.It’s been just over a month since the Cardinals fired manager Mike Matheny and replaced him on an interim basis with Mike Shildt. St. Louis has plenty of challenges ahead — its next six games are on the road against the Dodgers and Rockies — but the Cardinals have done enough to climb clearly into contention in the wild race for the NL’s postseason spots.Elsewhere around the majors:RISING STARRonald Acuna Jr. is showing why he was considered one of the game’s top prospects coming into the season. The 20-year-old Atlanta outfielder is hitting .355 with 12 homers and 24 RBIs since the All-Star break. His 1.191 OPS over that span is the best mark in the National League for anyone with more than 60 at-bats.Acuna hit leadoff homers in three straight games before Miami’s Jose Urena hit him with his first pitch Wednesday night.ON A ROLLOakland took two of three from Houston and now trails the Astros by only a game atop the AL West. The Athletics were actually tied for first before dropping the series finale Sunday.On the morning of June 16, the A’s were 34-36 and trailed Houston by 11 ½ games. They were also 11 behind Seattle for the second wild card. Since then, Oakland is 40-14.DOUBLE TROUBLEThe Pittsburgh Pirates made a splash at the trade deadline when they acquired right-hander Chris Archer from Tampa Bay, but they’re nine games out in the NL Central after splitting four games with the Cubs.Pittsburgh allowed only four runs in that series but dropped the first two games by identical 1-0 scores. The Pirates hit into seven double plays in Friday’s game.HIGHLIGHTThe Texas Rangers got out of a bases-loaded Joey Votto Jersey , nobody-out jam with a triple play against the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night. Third baseman Jurickson Profar made a diving stop on David Fletcher’s one-hopper and stepped on third for a force play. He also tagged Taylor Ward, the runner who started the play at third, when Ward left the bag. Then Profar threw to second for another force.Some of the Angels’ runners may have been confused, since at first it was hard to tell whether Profar had gloved Fletcher’s grounder on a short hop or caught it on the fly. It was the first time since 1912 that a team pulled off a triple play without the batter being one of the outs.LINE OF THE WEEKJose Bautista hit a grand slam and had seven RBIs for the New York Mets as they routed Philadelphia 24-4 in the opener of a doubleheader Thursday. It was quite a turnabout for the Mets, just over two weeks after they were beaten 25-4 by Washington. WASHINGTON (AP) — With a bottle of bubbly at his feet and a baseball with the inscription “300 Ks” in a case in his locker, Max Scherzer allowed himself a moment to consider what he’d just accomplished.“It was something I dreamed of, reaching this mark,” Scherzer said, “because I know how hard it is to consistently go out there and strike guys out.”Scherzer became the 17th pitcher since 1900 to strike out 300 batters in a season, reaching that milestone by fanning 10 in seven innings Tuesday night during the Washington Nationals‘ otherwise meaningless 9-4 victory over the Miami Marlins.“A big number,” Nationals catcher Matt Wieters said, “when you’re talking about strikeouts.”Scherzer (18-7) lowered his ERA to 2.53 by allowing one run in seven innings as he bids for a third consecutive NL Cy Young Award; he also won the 2013 honor in the AL for Detroit. He threw 70 of his 100 pitches for strikes http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-brandon-finnegan-jersey , gave up five hits and didn’t walk a batter.The righty reached 300 by getting Austin Dean to whiff on an 85-mph slider at the end of a 10-pitch at-bat for the second out of the seventh. Scherzer pumped his fist while much of the announced crowd of 26,483 — including his wife, Erica May-Scherzer — joined players in the home dugout and home bullpen by saluting the ace with a standing ovation.“I definitely wanted to do it here at home,” said the 34-year-old Scherzer, who is currently slated to make one more start, in Sunday’s season finale at Colorado. “The fans — unbelievable support.”They would chant, “Let’s go, Max!” They would rise and cheer when he had two strikes on a hitter. They would emit a collective “Awwwwwww” when a pitch near the plate was ruled a ball — or even when a pitch resulted in any sort of out that wouldn’t add to his strikeout total.Sweating profusely on a muggy, 78-degree evening, Scherzer had all of his repertoire working, from the 97-mph fastballs he threw past Lewis Brinson for strikeouts in the fourth and seventh innings, to the 84-mph changeup that JT Riddle missed for a K leading off the game.As is Scherzer’s wont Reggie Sanders Jersey , he stalked around the grass after strikeouts.Asked whether he considered pulling his famously intense pitcher before No. 300, Nationals manager Dave Martinez laughed.“I value my life,” Martinez joked. “He was going to get 10 today, somehow.”Scherzer now has 10 strikeouts or more in a majors-high 18 of his 33 starts in 2018, and 82 such games for his career.He got Dean by throwing fastball after fastball with a full count, then getting him to chase a slider.“That’s probably where you can see Max has become a more complete pitcher than he was earlier in his career,” Wieters said, “where he was able to go with the slider and execute it and realize that with where that fastball was starting, (Dean is) going to be way out in front of it.”Dean’s take?“He’s the best pitcher in baseball,” the Marlins rookie said.The case certainly can be made. This is, after all, a guy with two no-hitters and a 20-strikeout game on his resume Johnny Bench Jersey , along with the Cy Youngs.Scherzer entered Tuesday ranked No. 1 in the NL in eight significant statistical categories, including strikeouts, strikeouts-to-walks ratio (5.69), opponents’ batting average (.188) and innings pitched (213 2/3). He was also tied for No. 1 in two others: wins and quality starts (27).The expectation is that Scherzer and New York Mets starter Jacob deGrom are the main Cy Young contenders in the NL. DeGrom is 9-9 with a 1.77 ERA and single-season records of 23 consecutive quality starts and 28 starts in a row allowing three or fewer earned runs.“There’s more to pitching than just striking guys out,” Scherzer said, “but also, it is a big reason why you can have success.”RENDON AND HARPERNationals 3B Anthony Rendon hit a three-run shot in the first inning off Jeff Brigham (0-4), increasing his season totals to 24 homers and 90 RBIs and extending his streak of reaching base to 33 straight games. Rendon added an RBI double in the seventh, when Washington batted around and tacked on six runs. … Bryce Harper scored twice to surpass 100 runs for the season; he already had a career-best 100 RBIs and more than 100 walks. Harper can become a free agent in the offseason, so Wednesday’s series finale could be the 2015 NL MVP’s last home game at Nationals Park.UP NEXTThe Nationals will give 26-year-old RHP Kyle McGowin his first start in the majors Wednesday. Miami will start LHP Wei-Yin Chen (6-11, 4.66 ERA).

    lineup and homered in a 10-6 win Friday night but the team will need to wait at least a little bit longer before getting third baseman Miguel Sano back in action.Sano will undergo “a few more tests” on his ailing left knee Bob Feller Jersey , according to manager Paul Molitor, whose team continues a three-game series with the Kansas City Royals on Saturday.He’s been out since bruising the leg while sliding into second Tuesday night in Houston. There was hope that he’d return for the series opener Friday but that plan was scratched when the pain hadn’t subsided.Article continues below ...“I was a little quick to speak about how he was the day after the injury,” Molitor told MLB.com Friday. “He’s still a little sore. I was of the mindset it would be sooner than later, and I don’t think it’s still too far out there. We’re just running a few more tests to make sure he’s going to be OK and there’s nothing that’s going to linger that we might have missed from the initial diagnosis.”The Twins will also be without first baseman Tyler Austin on Saturday.Austin’s back has been bothering him since Wednesday when he slipped and fell near the dugout while chasing down a pop fly.“His back is still feeling the symptoms there so we’re trying to go slowly and be patient as far as when we’re going to get him back out to play,” Molitor said. “He’s had some issues before. Nothing major that I know of. I just know he’s been dealing with working on keeping that back as flexible as he can and as available on a day-to-day basis as he can.”Right-hander Jose Berrios gets the ball Saturday night, looking to break out of a late-season slump.He hasn’t worked past the fifth inning in any of his last five starts and has a 6.65 ERA during that stretch. Berrios lasted only four innings his last time out, allowing five runs on five hits — including three home runs — while walking three and striking out eight in a 7-4 Minnesota loss to the Rangers last Saturday.“Realistically, he’s fighting it a little bit,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said. “I don’t know if it’s a combination of it getting late or a couple of other things, but it just hasn’t been going very well.”Saturday will mark his eighth career start and third of the season against the Royals, who hand the ball to right-hander Jorge Lopez.Lopez has been on a bit of a roller coaster since coming to the Royals as part of the trade that sent third baseman Mike Moustakas to Milwaukee at the deadline. Through four starts for Kansas City, he’s gone 1-3 with a 5.66 ERA but while he’s given up a combined 11 runs in two of those starts he’s also spun a pair of one-run outings including his last time out when he held the Orioles to a run on five hits while striking out eight without a walk over seven innings of work.“(His) command was good Satchel Paige Jersey ,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “But for me, he really utilized his fastball, pitched off his fastball, established his fastball. And he pitched off it with his slider, changeup and curveball. But the key was establishing his fastball first. He was filling up the zone and staying on the attack. Outstanding start for him.”Lopez will be facing the Twins for the first time in his career. LAS VEGAS (AP) — Harold Baines was given a save as big as any Lee Smith ever posted.In a vote sure to spark renewed cries of cronyism at Cooperstown, Baines surprisingly was picked for the baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday after never coming close in any previous election.“Very shocked,” the career .289 hitter said on a conference call.Smith, who held the major league record for saves when he retired, was an easy pick when the Today’s Game Era Committee met at the winter meetings.It took 12 votes for election by the 16-member panel — Smith was unanimous, Baines got 12 and former outfielder and manager Lou Piniella fell just short with 11.George Steinbrenner, Orel Hershiser, Albert Belle Joe Carter Jersey , Joe Carter, Will Clark, Davey Johnson and Charlie Manuel all received fewer than five votes.Smith and Baines both debuted in Chicago during the 1980 season. Smith began with the Cubs and went on to record 478 saves while Baines started out with the White Sox and had 2,866 hits.Baines had 384 home runs and 1,628 RBIs in a 22-year career — good numbers, but not stacking up against the greats of his day. He never drew more than 6.1 percent in five elections by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, far from the 75 percent required.“I wasn’t expecting this day to come,” the six-time All-Star said.The Hall board-appointed panel included longtime White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf.“I’m glad he was on that committee this year to help to get into the Hall of Fame,” Baines said.Reinsdorf praised his former player in a statement. Baines currently serves as a team ambassador in community relations department of the White Sox.“So happy for Harold. He’s a great player and a great human being,” Reinsdorf said. “I am so honored that I was a member of the committee. He deserved to be in long ago. I am just so excited.”“Not only was Harold one of my favorite players to watch, but I have nothing but admiration for him as a player and as a human being,” he said.Tony La Russa Francisco Lindor Jersey , Baines’ first big league manager, also was on the panel that elected him.In the past, Phil Rizzuto and Bill Mazeroski were among the players who benefited from friendly faces on Veterans Committees to reach the Hall. That panel has been revamped over the years, and the Today’s Game Era group was created as part of changes in 2014.“The era committees were established as a sort of a court of appeals for an opportunity in the event that over time it was felt that maybe somebody slipped through the cracks,” Hall President Jeff Idelson said. “And in the case of someone who received 6 percent of the vote in the BBWAA election, the reason that may have happened could be for many, many reasons.”Baines, now 59, had a smooth, consistent, left-handed stroke. But he never finished higher than ninth in an MVP vote, and never was among the top five AL hitters in the yearly batting race. His single-season high was 29 home runs at a time when lots of players hit more.Smith’s fastball helped him become a seven-time All-Star in an 18-year-old career. Known for his slow trudges from the bullpen to the mound Corey Kluber Jersey , he owned the saves record when he retired during the 1997 season while with Montreal. Trevor Hoffman and then Mariano Rivera reset the mark.Smith never reached 51 percent in 15 BBWAA elections. Still, he kept believing his day would come.“I’m pretty patient, though, and I think I waited long enough. But it’s sweeter,” he said on a conference call. “You look at those things, well, OK, who’s on the ballot this year? Who’s on the ballot next year? But I’d never, never, never give up hope.“And then when they started with the second-chance ballot, I thought my chances got a little better. This probably today was probably the (most) nervous I’ve been with this Hall of Fame voting thing,” he said.Smith became the seventh pitcher who primarily was a reliever to make the Hall Ricky Vaughn Jersey , joining Hoffman, Dennis Eckersley, Rollie Fingers, Goose Gossage, Bruce Sutter and Hoyt Wilhelm. The 61-year-old has long worked for the San Francisco Giants as a minor league pitching coach and instructor.Baines was a designated hitter for much of his career after knee trouble ended his days in the outfield. DHs have struggled to gain backing from Hall voters. Baines joined Frank Thomas as the only players in the Hall who spent more than half his games as a DH.“Everything I hear or read is DH is really not part of the game, I guess. But I disagree. But maybe this will the open up the doors for some more DHs,” Baines said.Both closers and DHs could see the numbers increase again very shortly.Rivera is eligible for the first time and big-hitting DH Edgar Martinez will be back on the ballot when results of the next BBWAA election are announced Jan. 22.Induction ceremonies are scheduled for July 21 at Cooperstown, New York.Between now and then, there’s certain to be more debate about who else should be in the Hall. Drug-tainted Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens are on the upcoming BBWAA ballot, influential players’ union head Marvin Miller has been denied seven times by various committees, and admitted steroids user Mark McGwire wasn’t among Sunday’s candidates.

    we knew who would advance to the 2018 World Series Dellin Betances Jersey , the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers flipped their respective league championship series on their heads Tuesday.Entering Wednesday's action, the Dodgers are tied 2-2 with the Milwaukee Brewers in the NLCS, while the Red Sox hold a 2-1 ALCS advantage over the Houston Astros.The direction of the series can change in an instant, which makes predicting the two World Series participants a difficult task.Although a World Series rematch between the Astros and Dodgers is still in play, it's far from a guarantee with less than a week before the start of the Fall Classic.2018 World Series ScheduleGame 1:Tuesday, October 23 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 2:Wednesday, October 24 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 3:Friday, October 26 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 4:Saturday, October 27 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 5:Sunday, October 28 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 6:Tuesday, October 30 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 7:Wednesday Matt Holliday Jersey , October 31 (Time TBD, Fox)LCS PredictionsDodgers in 6The Dodgers carry a few valuable things heading into Wednesday's Game 5, including home-field advantage and the momentum gained from Tuesday's 13-inning victory.Matt Slocum/Associated PressThe quick turnaround to Game 5 won't be kind to either side, but the Dodgers appear to have a distinct advantage with Clayton Kershaw toeing the rubber.Neither lineup has been particularly impressive, as the Brewers are hitting .231 and the Dodgers have a .201 series average, which leads us to believe another low-scoring affair is in the cards for at least Game 5.In his first start of the NLCS, Kershaw gave up four earned runs in three innings, but the Brewers haven't been able to score five runs in a game since their opening triumph at Miller Park.Milwaukee has received some unlikely production from Orlando Arcia while Ryan Braun is continuing his strong postseason with five hits and three RBI, but for the most part, the Brewers lineup hasn't done much.The same can be said about the Los Angeles lineup with the exception of Manny Machado, who leads the series with six hits.With Los Angeles' starters and Milwaukee's bullpen keeping hitters off-balance, neither lineup will put up astronomical numbers for the remainder of the season.The NLCS will come down to pitching, where the Dodgers have an upper hand with three reliable starters available in Kershaw, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Walker Buehler.Milwaukee's bullpen-first strategy has produced mixed results, but even with a day off between Games 5 and 6, the volume of innings pitched will weigh them down.Expect to see two tight games to finish off the series, with the Dodgers emerging victorious thanks to clutch hits from Machado and Justin Turner http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-austin-romine-jersey , who will shine in Game 6 just like he did during Game 2 in Milwaukee. Red Sox in 7No one knows which direction the ALCS will turn after Boston took control of the series with an 8-2 victory in Game 3.Frank Franklin II/Associated PressThe series we thought would be dominated by pitching has seen 31 runs cross the plate in 27 innings, and it looks like the bats on both sides are just getting warmed up.Seven of the nine players who started Game 3 in Boston's lineup recorded a hit, including Jackie Bradley Jr., who busted the contest open with an eighth-inning grand slam.Although the Astros only recorded two runs on seven hits in their first home game of the ALCS, the production from the top of the lineup showed promise.George Springer, who extended his postseason hitting streak to 12 games, Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman combined for five of Houston's seven hits in Game 3, but now the other two-thirds of the order have to break through at the plate.If the Astros are able to get production up and down the lineup, like the Red Sox did in Game 3, the series will continue to be dominated by the bats.While Game 4 may witness another winner scoring seven or more runs, the experienced starters in both rotations will emerge as the dominant figures of the series, starting in Game 5.Surprising performances from David Price and Nathan Eovaldi, combined with some type of Chris Sale relief appearance in Game 7, will hand the Red Sox the slightest of edges over the experienced Astros.Although the Red Sox will close out the series at Fenway Park, it could come down to the final inning of Game 7, which is why Sale will be available in some capacity. Follow Joe on Twitter, JTansey90. The chances are slim. OK Reggie Jackson Jersey , very slim.But the Tampa Bay Rays host Oakland in a weekend series beginning Friday with their last chance at making a run at the Athletics for an American League wild-card spot.This is a three-game series between the two hottest teams in the league, but an Oakland loss in Baltimore on Thursday night left the idle Rays eight games behind the A’s, who trail the idle New York Yankees for the top wild-card position by 1 1/2 games. The A’s also fell 3 1/2 games behind the Houston Astros atop the AL West.Article continues below ...Obviously, the only chance Tampa Bay might have hinges on a sweep this weekend and while the Rays have won 18 of their last 22 games overall and 13 of their last 14 at home, the chance of Oakland losing all three games seems remote at best.Even with Thursday night’s loss, which ended a six-game winning streak, the A’s are 55-22 in their last 77 games. Before the loss, they were 32 games over .500 for the first time since Sept. 23, 2003.They have a magic number to clinch the wild-card spot of nine, but face a hot Tampa team that has built a strong belief in itself down the stretch.“You hope that we’re learning a lot about ourselves right now,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said Wednesday. “Bring some excitement to the rest of this year and going into the offseason. Getting to watch this from a really good seat, it’s pretty exciting. I hope it’s exciting for our fans. Because these guys, they come every day, they bring a lot of effort, they’re fun to watch and they’re very talented.”Veteran Edwin Jackson, who is 5-3 with a 3.26 ERA this season since joining the A’s (his 13th team), works the first game of the series on Friday http://www.yankeesfanproshop.com/authentic-bernie-williams-jersey , while Cash goes with “opener” Diego Castillo (3-2, 3.45 ERA), with 14-game winner rookie Ryan Yarbrough slated to do the bulk of the work.Jackson is 1-1 in his last five starts and is coming off a rough outings against the Rangers in Oakland, giving up four runs on five hits, including two home runs, in three innings of a no-decision. The A’s won the game 8-6.Yarbrough is 14-5 with a 3.78 ERA and will take over for Castillo, who gave up a run in two innings as the “opener” Monday night. Yarbrough had a 5 2/3-inning relief appearance with nine strikeouts while allowing three runs May 31 against the A’s as the Rays won three of four at Oakland, which is 20-9 versus the AL East.Both teams come in with former Cardinals in the midst of hitting streaks — Tampa Bay’s Tommy Pham with a 16-game streak and Oakland’s Stephen Piscotty a 14-game streak after hitting a home run in Baltimore Thursday night.The A’s, who has lost ace Sean Manaea for the season with shoulder surgery, announced Trevor Cahill, who was scheduled to start Saturday’s game, had gone home for an MRI on a strained rhomboid muscle in his back. The hope is he’ll be able to start twice on Oakland’s final homestand of the season.“Hopefully it’s just a muscular thing,” Oakland manager Bob Melvin said before Thursday’s game. “Felt it last time out, so we’re going to send him back. He’s had some trouble in certain areas before, so we want to make sure we cover our bases. Hopefully we know a little bit more tomorrow about what the results are, and hopefully it’s only one turn around.”Tampa’s Matt Duffy missed the last three games with back stiffness but was available to pinch hit Wednesday and hopes to play Friday night.

    in his right wrist July 26 Paul Goldschmidt Jersey , the initial expectation was that he would only be away from the New York Yankees for a couple of weeks.Well, it's been over a month and the slugging right fielder still isn't back. As much as anything, this explains why Andrew McCutchen is on his way to New York.Not long after the Yankees blew a ninth-inning lead en route to a crushing 8-7 loss to the Detroit Tigers Thursday night, reports surfaced that the San Francisco Giants had agreed to trade McCutchen to the Yankees. According to Joel Sherman of theNew York Post, two prospects are going to San Francisco:Joel Sherman Joelsherman1I hear if the trade is completed #yankees will be sending two prospects to the #sfgiants for McCutchen and that Abital Avelino is one of them.McCutchen, the 2013 National League MVP, isgoing from a sub-.500 Giants team to an 84-50 Yankees club that's positioned for a wild-card berth. Because he was acquired ahead of the August 31 waiver trade deadline, he's eligible to stay with New York for the duration of its October ride.For the Yankees, it's a solid baseball trade.Abiatal Avelino only checks in as their No. 23 prospect atMLB.com.And perRandy Millerof NJ.com, the $2.45 million left on McCutchen's contract shouldn't put the Yankees over the luxury-tax threshold.Now that the basics are out of the way, it's on to the heart of the matter: This deal shouldspare the Yankees from a nightmare of their own making.Adam Hunger/Getty ImagesOriginally, it wasbelieved that Judge would need only three weeks of rest before he was able to swing a bat again. More than three weeks later, however, the 2017 American League Rookie of the Year still isn't close to swinging a bat again.It doesn't need to be speculated that the Yankees erred in thinking Judge could make such a swift recovery. General manager Brian Cashman admitted as much toShermanon August 20:"[Yankees team doctor Chris] Ahmad was optimistic. He recognizes these things take four to six weeks, but for some reason his experience with Judge, [Ahmad] went the most optimistic three weeks. That was a mistake, one he has self-admitted to. In fairness to Aaron, four to six weeks is typical. Usually, we don't over-promise. In this case, we missed on the timeline. It is unfair to the player. The optimism and the timeline were inaccurate."If thereissomething to speculate about, it's whether the Yankees ran with an aggressive timeline for Judge's recovery for the sake of convenience.At the time he was hurt, they had already lost fellow slugger Gary Sanchez to astrained groinand young outfielder Clint Frazier to aconcussion. According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, they adjusted their deadline priorities accordingly:Jon Heyman JonHeymanYankees looking for an extra hitter/OF with judge (and Sanchez and Frazier) out. Probably prefer a righty hitter. But the grandy man cgrand3 could be a potential fit.Under these circumstances http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-patrick-corbin-jersey , a conservative recovery timeline for Judge might have signaled a greater sense of desperation to potential trade partners, resulting in boosted price tags.Had the Yankees' maneuvering worked, it would have been worth a tip of the ol' cap. Instead, nothing happened in the final days of July or through the first 30 days of August. And the Yankees paid for it.Sure, they have a winning record (19-14) in the time Judge has been out. But theiroffense has gone from a .789 OPSwith himto a .762 OPSwithout him, and the team's deficit to the Boston Red Sox in the AL East race has grown from 4.5 games to 8.5 games.By not rushing to bring in help from outside the organization, the Yankees took asense of urgency that should have been on their shoulders and transferred it onto Judge's.Thus, it's no wonder that he recently spoke about returning before he was 100 percent healthy."That's what I've heard, that I can play with it," the 26-year-oldtold reportersTuesday. "I don't need surgery, I don't need anything like that. You can play with it before it fully heals. It's just getting that pain down to zero."Maybe an early return would have worked. This is Aaron Judge, after all.He's a .284/.412/.595 hitter with 78 home runs over the last two seasons. Even a sub-100 percent version of him might have still proved to be elite.However, it's just as likely that an early return would have resulted in calamity.There would have been the risk of his wrist catching another wayward fastballlike the onethat hit him in July. Other forces (an awkward check swing, a hard headfirst slide, a diving catch attempt) could also have put his wrist in jeopardy.Even if Judge avoided all of these, he might not have been up to being a savior anyway. He could have been held back by out-of-whack timing. Or, the 6'7", 282-pounder'swounded wrist could have rendered him unable to conjure his trademark power.Now that McCutchen is coming to the rescue, there's no need for Judge to rush.McCutchen isn't Judge's equal at this stage of his career, but he can still hit. He has a .772 OPS and 15 homers on the season, and a solid .794 OPS and six homers since the All-Star break.If nothing else, McCutchen is a better option in right field than what the Yankees had been going with in place of Judge.While Giancarlo Stanton and Neil Walker have done their part to carry the load, Shane Robinson has done plenty to chip away at it. The Yankeesrank 28thin right field offense since July 28.Having McCutchen in right field should take care of that problem in the short term. Because of that Randy Johnson Jersey , Judge can take more time to let his wrist heal. With enough luck, it will be good to go in time for the postseason. At that point, McCutchen would go from a solid everyday player to an enviable platoon option.Of course, it's hard not to wonder where the Yankees would be right now if they'd traded for McCutchen sooner. They'd almost certainly be closer to the Red Sox in the AL East race. If so, their September would be less about saving face and more about seizing an opportunity.Still, a trade made late is better than a trade not made at all. Rather than too little, too late, McCutchen to the Yankees is just enough, just in time.Stats courtesy of Baseball Reference and Baseball Savant. Jason O. Watson/Getty ImagesAdrian Beltre keeps hinting at retirement, which is completely understandable and completely unfortunate.Understandable, because Beltre is 39 years old and is again bothered by leg issues that sent him to the disabled list four times in the last two years. While he keeps saying he won't decide about 2019 until the 2018 season ends, the words "go home" and "goodbye" keep creeping into his interviews.Unfortunate, because even if Beltre is old by baseball standards, his spirit is still young by any standard. Whether it's his happy feet in the batter's box, his darts into the outfield when caught in a rundown or his shared laughs with umpires or opponents, no one in the game is quirkier.At a time when so many are saying baseball has become hard to watch, who is easier to watch than the Texas Rangers third baseman?You want to make baseball fun? Check out Beltre and Elvis Andrus, his Rangers sidekick."We're two grown men with a kid's soul," Andrus said.They play the game so professionally that no old-school traditionalist could complain. But they play it with enough eccentricity that on any given night they could be trending on social media.A routine pop-up turns into performance art on the left side of the Rangers infield, with both Beltre and Andrus setting up as if to catch it. Don't worry. One of them will get it. The other will go into a pantomime act and perhaps a display that convinces some on the internet there's real anger.Did you see the time Beltre took a ball Andrus thought was his, and Andrus responded by drawing a literal line in the dirt? Did you see the one where Andrus came a little close, and Beltre responded by pretending to throw the ball right at his teammate? Or the one where Beltre slapped Andrus away with his glove before making the catch?Beltre and Andrus have been Rangers teammates (and comic sidekicks) since 2011.Jayne Kamin-Oncea/Getty Images"It's like the Harlem Globetrotters of baseball," said Dave Raymond http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-a.-j.-pollock-jersey , who chronicles it all as the Texas Rangers' television voice. "Half the time, I want our [producers] to roll out with 'Sweet Georgia Brown' going into the break. Adrian is Meadowlark Lemon, and Elvis is Curly Neal."No, Beltre insists. It's not the Globetrotters."What they do is show," he said.What those Globetrotters did was all show, with a little basketball mixed in. Meadowlark, remember, was the "Clown Prince of Basketball."Beltre is no clown. He's fun, he's quirky, but he's also a 21-year major leaguer with a resume that should send him to the Hall of Fame. He shows total respect for the game, and the game gives it right back. There may be no current player more respected by teammates and opponents alike."People need to know how hard he's worked on the fundamentals," said Rangers bench coach Don Wakamatsu, who was Beltre's manager in 2009 and 2010 with the Seattle Mariners. "This guy's one of the best players in the game."Fine, but people also need to know about the other things Beltre does, the ones MLB.com highlighted in a hilarious video that runs more than eight minutes.They need to see what Rangers general manager Jon Daniels witnesses every spring, when Beltre stands in the batter's box and calls balls and strikes himself. Or asks the home plate umpire to check with his colleague at first base to confirm Beltre's own check swing."No! No! No!" he'll yell after taking a pitch just off the plate."Every once in a while you get a young umpire who doesn't know him and looks in the dugout and glares," Daniels said.The umpires who know Beltre understand he's doing nothing to show them up. He never does. He never would."I always draw a line," he said.He learned where to draw that line early on in the big leagues, after he joined the Los Angeles Dodgers as a 19-year-old in 1998, in an era when rookies were expected to be seen and not heard.Look at a YouTube video of Beltre's first major league hit, and the first thing you notice is it's not in HD (HD broadcasts had only just begun that season). The second thing you see is that Beltre never cracks a smile, even as he pulls into second base with a run-scoring double.It took three or four years, he said Yasmany Tomas Jersey , before he felt comfortable showing emotion. Little by little, he allowed his personality to come out.Even now, he turns it on and off, careful to understand the flow of the game and the feelings of a teammate or opponent.MLB MLBYo Adri谩n. 馃槀馃槀 4juFPwJBspWhen he struck out on an awkward swing early in an Aug. 7 game against former teammate Felix Hernandez, Beltre was more than willing to share a laugh with Hernandez as he walked back to the dugout. When he homered off Hernandez to make it 11-4 Rangers in the sixth inning, there were no smiles as he quietly and quickly circled the bases.Hernandez later texted Beltre asking why he hadn't made any kind of gesture. But Beltre wasn't going to kick an opponent who was down. There would be a response, but not right then."Next time, if it's close, I will," he promised.Beltre's celebrations can also go viral, in large part because he has a thing about being touched on the head. Most modern baseball celebrations involve just that, and it's wild to watch Beltre enjoying the moment while also trying hard to avoid any unwanted contact."I don't touch his head, ever," teammate Joey Gallo said. "I don't have enough time in. Elvis can get away with it."Andrus gets away with plenty. He's become the perfect foil for Beltre, and both players have benefited. While the Rangers sometimes worried early in Andrus' career that he didn't have the same on-off switch Beltre has, now they seem to operate in sync."We have fun, and that's when we do the best," Andrus said. "We really have a passion for the game, and that's what attracted me to baseball in the first place: to be able to do something for hours and hours and still have fun with it. That's what I love about this game."The pop-up show is what he and Beltre are best known for. Sometimes when they both line up with their gloves above their heads, even teammates and coaches can't tell for sure which one is about to catch the ball."I think that started in my second year," Andrus said. "I'm the shortstop, and I'm supposed to be in charge. But then you play with someone like him, and he wants to take some of those."They don't plan any of it out http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-shelby-miller-jersey , Andrus insists. And no, they don't really get mad at each other."People always ask me that; if he's really mad," Andrus said."Sometimes Elvis is annoying," Beltre said, playing along with the storyline. But then he grinned."[Beltre] is never actually really mad at anyone," Gallo said. "He's fake-mad a lot."Baseball Bros BaseballBrosElvis Andrus will never stop messing with Adrian Beltre 馃槀 0iYrbYUI18Beltre usually bats cleanup for the Rangers, and Gallo has often batted fifth. So he gets to watch one of the best shows in baseball from close up."I'll be in the on-deck circle," Gallo said. "And I can't stop laughing during his at-bats."It's not all comedy. Beltre's production has faded this season with age and sore legs鈥攈is .723 OPS would be his lowest for a full season since 2009鈥攂ut his career numbers remain Cooperstown-worthy.His 469 home runs are second-most among active players behind Albert Pujols. Beltre is also second to Pujols in doubles (627), RBI (1,687) andwins above replacement (95.1), as calculated by Baseball Reference.And first among laughs and smiles generated, as unofficially calculated by Bleacher Report. Has any player in the history of the game done more things that made you smile, grin or simply laugh out loud?Watch when a tight call goes against him, and you might see Beltre laughing with the umpire. Watch when he's in a rundown he knows he can't get out of. He might turn and run into the outfield or into the middle of the infield."Those 13-year-old moments," Rangers manager Jeff Banister calls them. "Those comic-relief moments. It's supposed to be fun. It's still a kid's game played by grown-ups."The bits of levity have been especially welcome this year. The Rangers have spent much of the season in last place in the American League West, stuck with a starting rotation that has seen them trailing after the third inning in 51 of their 72 losses.Beltre has still found a way to enjoy it."I don't think he's ever had a bad day at the ballpark," Rangers pitching coach Doug Brocail said. "He's ultra-fun. It's playful and fun, and it keeps guys from insanity."They know how fortunate they are to be around him, and how great it has been to watch him."It's a privilege for us to grow up with him," said 25-year-old Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar.They know it could be over soon if Beltre's body tells him this is time to call it a career. He has already said he wouldn't want to play for any team but the Rangers in 2019, but there's a possibility he won't even play for them.He deserves the chance to make that call. Everyone else just wants the chance to share a laugh with him one more time.Danny Knobler covers Major League Baseball as a national columnist for Bleacher Report.

    Theo Epstein told reporters Monday that manager Joe Maddon was informed the team wouldn't be discussing a contract extension this winter and "will re-evaluate the situation later in the 2019 season http://www.raysfanproshop.com/authentic-c.-j.-cron-jersey ," according to Patrick Mooney of The Athletic.Maddon is under contract through the 2019 campaign.Monday's announcement doesn't come as a huge surprise. In early October,Ken Rosenthalof The Athletic reported that "for months talk has persisted within the industry that Epstein and Maddon are not always on the same page."Epstein did deny that report two weeks later, however."I didn't read the whole thing," he said at the time, perPaul Sullivanof theChicago Tribune. "But I saw in there that there were some claims that he and I had personal friction. Not true at all. We have a terrific working relationship."Also in early October,Bob NightengaleofUSA Todayreported that Maddon wouldn't be offered a contract extension this winter and would be evaluatedafter the 2019 season, despite Maddon hoping for an extension.All of that smoke turned out to be a fire.That doesn't mean that Maddon won't ultimately be retained. Under his watch Jesus Sucre Jersey , the Cubs have gone 387-261, reached the postseason in four straight years and won the World Series in 2016. Maddon has led one of the most successful periods in franchise history and ended the team's legendary World Series drought.But the 2018 season ended in disappointment, as the team blew a five-game lead in the NL Central in September, lost the divisional tiebreaker game to the Milwaukee Brewers and were one-and-done in the postseason, losing the Wild Card Game to the Colorado Rockies. That end to the season has led to questions about Maddon's future in Chicago, questions that won't be answered until some point in 2019. A look at what’s happening around the majors today:2-0 CHANGEUPSean Newcomb will start Game 3 of the Braves‘ NL Division Series against the Dodgers instead of Kevin Gausman. With Atlanta trailing 2-0 in the best-of-five series, manager Brian Snitker made the swap Saturday. The 25-year-old Newcomb came within a strike of throwing a no-hitter against the Dodgers at home on July 29 http://www.raysfanproshop.com/authentic-jonny-venters-jersey , and also threw two scoreless innings in relief in the series opener Thursday.“We need to win,” Snitker said. “Not that Gausman doesn’t give us that opportunity. We like how Newcomb matches up with them and the success that he’s had against the Dodgers this year.”Rookie right-hander Walker Buehler is expected to start for Los Angeles. He allowed one hit in 6 2/3 scoreless innings Monday during the 5-2 win over Colorado in the NL West tiebreaker and finished 8-5 with a 2.62 ERA.COMING TO COORSThe Rockies hope the thin mountain air in Denver might help them solve Milwaukee’s pitchers. Colorado is facing elimination in its NL Division Series against the Brewers. It has scored just six runs in four games on the road since slugging five homers in a 12-0 victory over Washington last Sunday.The Rockies ranked 20th in runs on the road (335) and 29th in batting average (.225), but as usual, they’re a different club at home with 445 runs and a .287 average.Game 3 features a matchup of contrasting pitchers. Milwaukee’s Wade Miley gets by more with sneakiness than speed. The left-hander is 3-1 with a 4.76 ERA in five career games at Coors Field. Colorado will hand the ball to German Marquez, a right-hander who throws heat and had a team-record 230 strikeouts.BREATHER FOR RELIEVERSAndrew Miller and Cleveland’s bullpen get a day to rest and recover following yet another rocky outing. Miller allowed a go-ahead, two-run double in relief of starter Carlos Carrasco and failed to get an out in a 3-1 loss to Houston on Saturday.The Astros can sweep their ALDS in Game 3 on Monday. In the meantime, Miller and company get a day to correct a season’s worth of woes. The Indians‘ 4.60 bullpen ERA ranked 25th in the majors this season Matt Moore Jersey , and Miller was particularly ineffective amid three DL stints. Before Marwin Gonzalez’s two-run double Saturday, Miller had allowed just one inherited runner to score in his postseason career.BIG APPLE BOUNDAfter splitting two games at Fenway Park, the Yankees and Red Sox take a day off in New York before resuming their best-of-five Division Series on Monday. Neither team plans to work out at Yankee Stadium, where the Bronx Bombers are 7-0 over the past two postseasons. They can return to the AL Championship Series with two wins at home over their longtime rivals. Road teams are 1-7 in the four Division Series so far, with the Yankees earning the only victory.

    from its broadcast of the AL wild-card game http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-hanley-ramirez-jersey , though some viewers on its digital app complained of technical issues leading to accidental blackouts.The telecast of the New York Yankees’ 7-2 win over the Oakland Athletics was the most-watched program on cable Wednesday night, based on overnight delivery. It reached a peak of 7.5 million viewers, the best for an AL wild-card game ever on TBS. Its average viewership of 6.4 million was up 51 percent from TBS’s 2016 broadcast of the AL game between Baltimore and Toronto and 45 percent from last year’s NL game between Arizona and Colorado.TBS broadcasted both wild-card games in 2012 and ’13 and has alternated hosting the AL and NL wild-card games since.Turner also said viewership was up 120 percent on its digital platforms versus the 2016 AL game, though some viewers complained on social media the broadcast was blacked out. The technical issues are believed to have been resolved after the first few innings. TORONTO — The Tampa Bay Rays continue to play with a purpose, while the Toronto Blue Jays seem content to play out the string.The Rays will be going for a three-game sweep of the Blue Jays on Wednesday night after their 4-0 victory Tuesday.Tampa Bay leads the season series 9-2 and has shut out the Blue Jays three times.Article continues below ...Overall, the Rays (75-63) have won four in a row and 13 of their past 15 games to go to a season-best 12 games above .500.The Blue Jays (62-76) have lost seven of their past nine games.The Rays will start right-hander Tyler Glasnow (1-4, 3.95 ERA) on Wednesday and the Blue Jays will send out Aaron Sanchez (3-5, 5.22).Glasnow was obtained in a trade July 31 that sent right-hander Chris Archer to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Glasnow did not start for the Pirates, making 34 relief appearances (1-2 Bill Lee Jersey , 4.34) All six of his outings for the Rays have been starts, going 0-2 with a 3.23 ERA.At Cleveland on Friday, Glasnow faced the minimum batters through four innings and did not allow a hit until a two-out single in the fifth. The only run allowed in a career-high seven innings was a solo homer by Edwin Encarnacion in the seventh. The Indians won 3-0 with Glasnow taking the loss.Glasnow has faced the Blue Jays once, on the last road trip Aug 12. He pitched five-plus innings and picked up a no-decision after allowing one run, two hits and two walks while striking out six. The Blue Jays won 2-1.Sanchez has started once against the Rays this season, taking the loss at Tropicana Field on May 5. He allowed four runs and five hits in 3 2/3 innings. In his career against the Rays, he is 1-2 with a 1.58 ERA in 14 games (six starts).Sanchez went on the disabled list with an injured right index finger after his start June 21. In two starts since returning from the DL, he is 0-0 with an 11.88 ERA but the team has won both.The Rays have 12 shutouts this season. They have held the Blue Jays to five or fewer hits for seven straight games, which ties the major league record (since 1920). The Baltimore Orioles held the Washington Senators to five or fewer hits in seven consecutive games between Sept. 11 Xander Bogaerts Jersey , 1968-April 18, 1969.Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said he feels the Rays staff may be underrated, possibly because they have quite a few young pitches who are not yet well known.“I would say so, I would say it’s just a product of the youth that we have,” said Ryne Stanek, who has been the one-inning opener the Rays have used this season for the first two games of the series. “It’s one of those things where a lot of guys have don’t have a lot of time in the big leagues.”The teams continued to make moves with the expanded rosters in effect for the final month.The Rays reinstated catcher Adam Moore from the restricted list after he resolved his passport issue. He was put on the restricted list when catcher Nick Ciuffo was added to the 40-man roster Monday. The team created roster space for Moore’s return by moving infielder Daniel Robertson to the 60-day disabled list.Right-hander Jake Faria was recalled from Triple-A Durham and manager Kevin Cash said a decision has yet to be made about whether he will start or relieve. Cash said it “is a big month” for Faria.The Blue Jays called up outfielders Dwight Smith Jr. and Jonathan Davis, infielder Richard Urena and first baseman Rowdy Tellez. Right-hander Mike Hauschild has been designated for assignment, right-hander Joe Biagini (left oblique strain) has been put on the 10-day disabled and right-hander Jake Petricka was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo.Gibbons said some of the callups may not see much playing time but will gain some experience.“Just watch the games … and basically enjoy it,” Gibbons said he would advise the young players. “Don’t expect to take a ton of (batting practice) because we’re killing our coaches anyway. Don’t overdo it. Just enjoy the experience http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-joe-kelly-jersey , take advantage of it, watch and learn. They’ll all go to some nice stadiums, they’ll see all the primary places we play. Don’t eat too much of the food. You laugh, but it happens a lot. They swell. They swell up, you know.”

    BALTIMORE — On Saturday Cheap Kerryon Johnson Jersey , will have the chance to accomplish something they haven’t done in 10 years — win a season series against the Baltimore Orioles A victory for the White Sox would give Chicago a 4-2 lead in the season series against the Orioles with just one game left, locking up the win for the season.The White Sox (58-89) did twice split a series with Baltimore (42-105) — in 2011 and 2015 — but have gone 10 years without actually winning one. That last happened when Chicago took five of nine from the Orioles in 2008.Article continues below ...Chicago also will try and stretch its winning streak to three in a row in Saturday’s game. They won the final game of a series in Kansas City Wednesday before beating Baltimore 8-6 in the first game of this series on Friday night.Reynaldo Lopez (5-9, 4.22) of the White Sox and Baltimore’s Yefry Ramirez (1-5. 5.94) will be the starters in the middle game.Lopez has pitched just once against the Orioles and has an 0-1 record with a 13.50 ERA.Ramirez, a rookie right-hander, will be making his first start and appearance versus the White Sox in his career. He has pitched well at times this season but struggled more of late.The White Sox showed plenty of power in Friday’s victory. Avisail Garcia and Omar Narvaez both hit two-run homers, and Ryan Cordell added a solo shot (his first major-league hit after going 0-for-15 to start his career) as Chicago won thanks to getting six solid innings from starter James Shields, who won on the road for the first time since Opening Day.Shields said his teammates will keep on pushing right until the final game, and he likes how hard they’re working.“We’re going to finish strong,” Shields said. “We’re going to play all the way until the end. They want to get better every day.”The Orioles also showed some power in the loss http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-kerryon-johnson-jersey , thanks to Trey Mancini, who came up with a multi-homer game on a rainy night.He hit solo homers off of Shields in the second and fourth innings. Mancini now has 23 homers and 53 RBI this season after his first multi-homer game in 2018.Injuries have put the Baltimore starting rotation in trouble. Andrew Cashner (knee) and Alex Cobb (blister/cut on middle finger of right hand) can’t pitch in the next few days, so the Orioles still have not posted a starting pitcher for Sunday’s series finale.Rookie Luis Ortiz made his first major league start Friday but lasted just 1 2/3 innings before leaving with a hamstring injury after giving up three runs. So, that’s why everything remains up in the air for Sunday’s game.“See how we get through the next two nights,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Friday. “I think we’ll probably have to wait until Saturday’s over and see who’s kind of left there.”The White Sox did not make any player moves on Friday but Baltimore made two, recalling pitchers Donnie Hart and Evan Phillips from Triple-A Norfolk to bolster their struggling bullpen. No need to call them cheat sheets.Major League Baseball has told teams that it’s perfectly OK for pitchers to carry the kind of scouting cards that umpire Joe West confiscated from Philadelphia reliever Austin Davis on the mound this weekend.Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said he’d been informed the cards were legal. They are, provided they don’t delay games, MLB advised clubs in clarifying the policy.“I think it’s great that our pitchers are able to have their game plans on them,” Kapler said Sunday’s 8-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs. “I think it takes a lot of mental focus Authentic Kerryon Johnson Jersey , takes a lot of bandwidth to get out the best hitters in baseball. And when you can just take a little of that off your mind and put it on a card, I think that’s helpful for pitchers and good for baseball.”It has become common in the age of advanced baseball analytics to see outfielders and infielders pulling info cards from their pockets to check on proper positioning. But the sight of a pitcher doing it on the mound caught a lot of attention at Citizens Bank Park.The unusual situation occurred Saturday night in the eighth inning of the Chicago Cubs’ 7-1 win at Philadelphia.The NL Central-leading Cubs were ahead 5-1 as Addison Russell approached the plate. Davis took the reference card from his back pocket, checked the scouting report on Russell, and then put it away.West, in his 41st season as an umpire, came in from third base and took the card. He said it was illegal under Rule 6.02(c)(7), which states that the pitcher shall not have on his person, or in his possession, any foreign substance.Kapler and Davis said the left-hander was looking at the card merely for information on the Cubs hitters. The 25-year-old rookie said he’s used them this season.“I think usually it’s a quick glance and go. I was waiting for whoever it was to get in the box. So I think it took an extra second or something and caught his eye. But I don’t know Authentic Deshaun Watson Jersey ,” Davis said after the game.“Our analytics department works really, really hard to come up with this stuff for us and I want to use it because they work all day to come up with stuff to help get guys out. And if I have an answer to get a guy out, I want to know what that is,” he said.Davis said he made the card himself.“This is something I create. We have our meeting where we go over the hitters. I take that information and put it on a card so I don’t have to try and memorize it and use my mental energy to get ready for the game,” he said. “Then I just take a glance and go.”West kept this card.“I saw him take it out and I went, ‘What the heck is that?'” West said.West called the league office after the game for a ruling.“I didn’t want to throw him out,” West said postgame. “I know it’s foreign but he’s not trying to cheat. Maybe he’s trying to get an advantage because he’s reading the scouting report, but it wasn’t pine tar, it wasn’t an emery board http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/deshaun-watson-jersey , it wasn’t whatever.“In the long run, maybe they’ll let him (have the card). Right now, my hands are tied until they say yes or no. Right now, until the office says it’s OK to carry this, he can’t do it,” he said.

    their trade options with star outfielder Andrew McCutchen.Per The Athletic's Andrew Baggarly http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-james-mccann-jersey , the Giants placed McCutchen on revocable trade waivers. He added there is a "very good chance" the 2013 National League MVP is playing for a new team by the end of this week.The move comes after the Giants were swept by the Cincinnati Reds over the weekend and have lost eight of their past 12 games to fall 7.5 games out of the second wild-card spot in the NL entering Monday.McCutchen is in the final season of his contract and will be eligible for free agency this offseason. If the Giants don't trade him, they can make him a qualifying offer to receive draft-pick compensation in 2019 if he signs elsewhere.Under MLB's waiver rules, teams have the option to put in a claim on a player. Priority is determined based on the claiming team's record, but if no one puts in a claim and the player clears waivers, his team can negotiate a deal with any club.In the event McCutchen is claimed, the Giants will have the option to simply pull him back to keep him, negotiate a trade with the claiming team within 48 hours or just give him to the other team for nothing.McCutchen, 31, is having a solid season in San Francisco. He's hitting .257/.354/.417 with 42 extra-base hits and 10 stolen bases in 121 games. LAS VEGAS (AP) — Here along the Strip Shane Greene Jersey , the Boston Red Sox are placing their bets on a new leadoff man.AL MVP Mookie Betts will hit second next year, a season after he led the big leagues in batting average and slugging percentage from the top spot.Andrew Benintendi will move up a slot and hit first for the majors’ highest-scoring team, manager Alex Cora said Tuesday at the winter meetings.“I think we’re going to maximize Mookie in a different spot. Flip-flop them, Beni leading off and Mookie hitting second. Talked to him, it makes sense,” Cora said.“You guys saw what happened towards the end of the season, he became very passive again,” he said. “And it’s not that I don’t like that, I know what type of hitter he is. But I think doing that Sparky Anderson Jersey , Beni can be aggressive. … He’s a good runner. He gets on base, and I put it this way to Mookie. And I know Beni’s OK with it. But if you play 162 games, you’re going to come up 162 at-bats with nobody on.”Betts topped the majors in batting (.346) and slugging percentage (.640) and was second in on-base average (.438) for the 108-win Red Sox. He also had 84 extra-base hits, including 32 home runs, and stole 30 bases.“Last year, what I wanted from him in the leadoff spot, we accomplished. It’s a different season and we have to make adjustments, and that’s where we’re going to go,” Cora said.Benintendi hit .290 with 16 homers http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-jack-morris-jersey , 87 RBIs and a .366 on-base average.Cora actually is hoping someone else bats leadoff when the Red Sox open next season on March 28 at Seattle — that would be Dustin Pedroia.The longtime Red Sox star was limited to only three games last season because of lingering knee problems. As a tribute, Cora would love to put Pedroia in the top spot, where he’s occasionally hit over the years, on that first day against the Mariners.The 35-year-old Pedroia has been working out, trying to get back on the field.“I’m looking forward for him to lead off that game. That’s the only time. I told the guys, if Pedey is going to play, if he’s ready for opening day, he’ll lead off that day. He deserves that,” Cora said.“He’s a huge part of this organization. What he did last year Michael Fulmer Jersey , think about it, man, like he didn’t play, but he was there. He was there for them the whole time. And there were a lot of conversations in the cage, in the dugout, in the clubhouse, that he was a part of it,” he said.

    ST. PETERSBURG Authentic Deshaun Watson Jersey , Fla. (AP) — poor outing in his final start before the playoffs.Tanaka gave up four runs and six hits over four-plus innings in in the New York Yankees‘ 8-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday night.“It just comes down to the mechanics,” Tanaka said through a translator. “I wasn’t able to locate my pitches the way I wanted to.”New York’s lead over Oakland for home-field advantage in the AL wild-card game on Oct. 3 was cut to 1½ games, with the Yankees holding the tiebreaker.Yankees manager Aaron Boone hasn’t decided whether Tanaka, J.A. Happ or Luis Severino will start against the A’s.“A lot of people ask me that, friends, family, all that, and honestly I have no idea,” Boone said before the game.New York rallied for four runs in the ninth against Sergio Romo, who struggled to get four outs for his 24th save.“They’re tough. They’re talented,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said.Aaron Judge hit a bases-loaded RBI single before Luke Voit hit a two-run off the center-field wall that Mallex Smith nearly caught. Judge held up, forcing Voit to only reach first. After Giancarlo Stanton had a run-scoring infield single, Romo retired Tyler Wade on a flyout and Miguel Andujar on a popout.“I’m proud of the way the guys were fighting,” Judge said. “Games like that will help us down the stretch and the postseason.”Tanaka (12-6) was coming off a four-inning start last Thursday in which he allowed five runs and eight hits during an 11-6 loss to Boston.“Regardless of how I pitched the last two games, it’s something that’s out of my control, so I guess I don’t really have an opinion on that,” Tanaka said of the wild-card game.Tampa Bay’s Kevin Kiermaier was hit by Tanaka’s pitch in the first and left two innings later with what X-rays determined was a hairline fracture of the right foot. The center fielder made a running catch on Brett Gardner’s drive during the second.Kiermaier missed 57 games this season with a torn right thumb ligament.“What a way for my year to end,” Kiermaier said. “That’s my 2018 in a nutshell.”After falling behind by three, the Rays went up 4-3 on Tommy Pham’s third-inning solo homer off Tanaka. Pham extended his career-best, on-base streak to 28 games, the longest active run in the AL. He has a hit in 27 of them.Reliever Yonny Chirinos (5-5) went four scoreless innings and worked out of a bases-loaded http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/deshaun-watson-jersey , one-out jam in the fifth when Stanton grounded into a double play.Both teams scored three times in a first inning that lasted 40 minutes and saw Tampa Bay’s Ryne Stanek (30) and Tanaka (36) combine for 66 pitches.Neil Walker hit a three-run homer , while Tanaka walked one, hit a batter, allowed three hits and was charged with an error on an errant throw to second base after fielding C.J. Cron’s grounder between the mound and the first-base line.Walker was hit on the shin by pitched ball in the eighth and was replaced by Wade. X-rays were negative.Matt Duffy, who scored on Tanaka’s error, left after the inning with right quadriceps tightness.Cron had an RBI double in a four-run eighth off David Robertson. The inning included Gary Sanchez’s major league-leading 18th passed ball, which raised his two-year total to 34.Robertson joined Mariano Rivera (1,115) and Dave Righetti (522) as the only pitchers to make 500 appearances with the Yankees.It was the eighth time the Yankees have lost when scoring seven or more runs.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: SS Didi Gregorius (right wrist) resumed baseball activities and might return this weekend. … CF Aaron Hicks (left hamstring) will likely start Friday. … INF Gleyber Torres (hip/groin) struck out as a pinch-hitter in the sixth.Rays: 1B/DH Ji-Man Choi sat out after experiencing concussion-like symptoms and cutting his left ear during a play at the plate Tuesday. “Nothing more than stitches in his ear,” Cash said.UP NEXTLHP CC Sabathia (8-7) could be making his final regular-season start for the Yankees on Thursday. He needs seven innings to reach 155 and earn a $500,000 bonus. The Rays will use relievers. LOS ANGELES (AP) — With Sandy Koufax sitting in the front row, Clayton Kershaw pitched the best postseason game of his career, motivated partly by being passed over as the Dodgers‘ Game 1 starter.He responded with a postseason career-high eight innings of two-hit ball in his team’s second straight playoff shutout, and Manny Machado slugged a two-run homer as Los Angeles beat the Atlanta Braves 3-0 on Friday night for a 2-0 lead in their NL Division Series.“I think that it was one of the best outings that I’ve seen,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “He was in complete control.”The Dodgers used a nearly identical formula to win 6-0 in Game 1 behind Hyun-Jin Ryu, who allowed only four two-out singles over seven innings, and home runs by Joc Pederson, Max Muncy and Enrique Hernandez.Kershaw was even better. The left-hander struck out three and walked none in the longest scoreless playoff outing for a Dodgers pitcher since Jose Lima tossed a complete-game shutout in Game 3 of the 2004 NLDS against St. Louis.“Maybe a tick, for sure,” Kershaw said of earning some extra satisfaction. “But Ryu threw so unbelievable last night that you just want to match him. That’s all I was trying to do.”Ryu and Kershaw became the second pair of Dodgers starters to have consecutive postseason games with seven-plus scoreless innings. Jerry Reuss and Burt Hooton did it in 1981, against Houston and Montreal.The Dodgers joined the 1921 New York Yankees as the only teams to open a postseason series with back-to-back shutouts, according to STATS. They recorded their first consecutive shutouts since Games 2 and 3 of the 2016 NL Championship Series against the Cubs.Los Angeles can sweep the best-of-five series in Game 3 on Sunday in Atlanta Deshaun Watson Jersey Elite , where the Baby Braves will be looking to score for the first time this postseason.“I see the frustration those guys have against this guy,” Braves starter Anibal Sanchez said of his teammates facing Kershaw.Kershaw got bypassed as the Game 1 starter in favor of Ryu after the three-time Cy Young Award winner had started eight of the Dodgers’ past 10 postseason openers. Roberts said it was done to give both Ryu and Kershaw five days of rest between starts.“This guy is a potential Hall of Fame player,” Roberts said. “So to have the noise around him, but when it comes to his day to start and to help his club win a game, I had no concern that anything was going to affect him.”One more victory would put Los Angeles in the NLCS for the third straight year. The Dodgers beat the Cubs last season and lost to them in 2016.Kershaw ran out to the mound as though he was going to pitch the ninth, bringing cheers from the sellout crowd of 54,452. But when Roberts went out to pull his ace after 85 pitches, fans booed.Roberts deked to force the hand of Atlanta manager Brian Snitker, who ended up wasting Tyler Flowers before sending up Lucas Duda as the pinch-hitter.“I felt that that was a way that you can use their two best hitters off the bench and get our guy in there,” Roberts said.Kershaw was fine with it, too.“The plan all along was if they burned their bench, which is what we wanted to do and Flowers came out, that Kenley had the ninth,” he said. Kenley Jansen gave up a one-out single to Ronald Acuna Jr. before earning the save. Machado hit a two-run shot on a 3-0 pitch from Sanchez with two outs in the first. Joc Pederson doubled leading off. Yasmani Grandal homered on an 0-2 pitch from Sanchez leading off the fifth to make it 3-0. Acuna doubled to deep left-center on Kershaw’s first pitch. He became the first Braves runner to reach third base in the series when Johan Camargo grounded out to Kershaw.After Acuna’s double, Kershaw retired 14 consecutive batters until Ender Inciarte reached on an infield single with two outs in the fifth. Ex-Dodger Charlie Culberson grounded into a fielder’s choice to shortstop, with Inciarte out at second.“He has a feel for everything and when his curveball’s on, it’s going to be a good night for him,” Culberson said. “He’s one of the best, and he showed it.”Kershaw was sharp on defense, too.He chased around to grab a ball hit by Camargo and fired to first in time for the initial out of the fourth.One inning later, Kershaw did a 180-degree spin after a comebacker by Ozzie Albies struck him in the hamstring Youth Jalen Ramsey Jersey , slipped on the grass and made the throw to first for the second out of the fifth. A trainer briefly came out to check on Kershaw, who threw one warmup pitch to prove he was fine.“It just got me in a good spot, kind of in the belly of the leg right there,” Kershaw said, “so maybe a little sore tomorrow, but I should be good.”The Dodgers backed Kershaw with a double play to end the sixth after he plunked pinch-hitter Lane Adams leading off and Acuna Jr. grounded into a fielder’s choice.“A lot of great plays all the way around,” Kershaw said.The Braves’ offense was anemic again.Other than Acuna’s double and his single in the ninth, they were limited to a two-out single by Inciarte in the fifth. Freddie Freeman was hitless with a strikeout in four at-bats. Nick Markakis went 0 for 3 with a strikeout, and Albies was 0 for 3.“You can’t blame any one person,” Snitker said. “I mean, it’s just our whole lineup is having a hard time.”KERSH’S KIDSKershaw juggled daughter Cali and son Charley on his lap in the postgame interview room. With a pacifier in his mouth, Charley bopped the microphone with his hand a couple of times and Cali smiled at the crowd of reporters and cameras.“Y’all are supposed to be in bed,” Kershaw said, clearly pleased to have his hands full.UP NEXTWith their season on the line, the NL East champion Braves are likely to start RHP Kevin Gausman on Sunday. He came over from Baltimore before the July 31 trade deadline in a six-player deal and was 5-3 with a 2.87 ERA in 10 starts for Atlanta.The Dodgers are going with rookie RHP Walker Buehler, who was 8-5 with a 2.62 ERA this season. Buehler last pitched on Monday, allowing one hit in 6 2/3 innings and striking out three in the NL West tiebreaker victory over the Rockies.

    has been determined http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-jimmy-wynn-jersey , as the Boston Red Sox captured the American League pennant Thursday night.We'll know Boston's opponent by Saturday, and possibly as early as Friday, as the Los Angeles Dodgers hold a 3-2 NLCS lead over the Milwaukee Brewers going into Friday's Game 6 at Miller Park.Boston is making its first appearance in the Fall Classic since 2013, when it defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in six games.When the World Series begins Tuesday at Fenway Park, the Red Sox will be facing their third different National League foe in their fourth World Series appearance since 2004.In every World Series, a few breakout stars emerge, and Boston's ALCS victory gave us a glimpse as to which players might fill that role. Meanwhile, we have an idea who could feature in a starring spot for the eventual National League champion. 2018 World Series ScheduleGame 1:Tuesday, October 23 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 2:Wednesday, October 24 (Time TBD Francisco Liriano Jersey , Fox)Game 3:Friday, October 26 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 4:Saturday, October 27 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 5:Sunday, October 28 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 6:Tuesday, October 30 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 7:Wednesday, October 31 (Time TBD, Fox) Players Who Will Decide ChampionshipDavid PriceDavid Price's ALCS Game 5 start was hopefully a turning point in his postseason career.Price http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-charlie-morton-jersey , whose playoff struggles have been well documented in recent weeks, tossed six scoreless innings to help the Red Sox down the Houston Astros 4-1 Thursday.Thursday's outing marked the first time Price gave up less than two runs in a postseason start, which is a welcome development for a Boston team counting on its rotation to alleviate the pressure on the bullpen.Elsa/Getty ImagesChris Sale should start Game 1 of the World Series, which would set up Price for a Game 2 outing on the mound, similar to what we saw in the ALDS and ALCS.Now that Price has confidence behind him from earning his first postseason victory as a starter, he could produce a similar performance at Fenway Park against the NL champion.Before Thursday, the idea of using Price out of the bullpen was a good one, and it still might be if the Red Sox need to close out a tight game on the road.If Boston manager Alex Cora sticks with the same rotation he utilized in the ALCS, Price would be available for an inning or two between Games 2 and 6.Cora showed in the clinching victory over the Astros that he's not afraid to use a starter in a key relief role, as ALCS Game 3 starter Nathan Eovaldi threw 1.1 innings to set up closer Craig Kimbrel.No matter which role he fills late in the series, Price will benefit from another strong start in Game 2 and be the difference-maker no one expected he could be as recently as Thursday afternoon.Yasiel PuigThe Dodgers will clinch the National League pennant in Milwaukee Andy Pettitte Jersey , and after that, they will rely on an unlikely star at the plate to be competitive at Fenway Park in Games 1 and 2 of the World Series.In each of his past six postseason series, Yasiel Puig hasrecorded at least three hits, with the 2017 NLDS and NLCS being his most successful outings.Puig's bat is starting to come alive against the Brewers, as he has four hits in the past three NLCS games, and he will increase that production in the World Series with the Red Sox more concerned with other batters in the Los Angeles order.Kevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesThe Boston pitchers will be forced to pitch to Puig, who normally resides further down the order, because they will have so much focus on limiting the production of Justin Turner, Manny Machado and others.That careful strategy will end up in a few walks that set the stage for the back end of the Los Angeles lineup to drive in runs.With Puig beginning to heat up at the plate again, he will come up with a few hits in clutch situations and record a game-winning hit at some point in the series. Follow Joe on Twitter, JTansey90. Brian Babineau/Getty ImagesThe Boston Red Sox left a $195 Jose Cruz Jr. Jersey ,000 tip on top of their $300,000 tab at the Nightingale Plaza in Los Angeles after their Game 5 victory over the Dodgers on Sunday night that clinched the 2018 World Series.On Friday, TMZ Sports reported the half-million celebration, which featured 169 bottles of champagne, 17 bottles of Jack Daniel's and a variety of other alcohol, was handled by "someone with the team."The Red Sox didn't stop there, though.They returned home for a party in Boston at the Icon Nightclub on Tuesday night that included more than 40 cases of champagne en route to another $300,000 bill, per TMZ Sports.The Red Sox were right back in the spotlight Wednesday morning when they manned the duck boats for their championship paradethat started at Fenway Park.Although the whirlwind nature of the celebration is probably now over, there will likely be several more parties throughout the offseason as the Red Sox honor their ninth championship, including their fourth since the 2004 season.It wouldn't be a surprise if they did it all again next season thanks to a star-studded roster led by Mookie Betts http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-nolan-ryan-jersey , J.D. Martinez, Andrew Benintendi, Xander Bogaerts, Chris Sale, David Price and Rick Porcello.

    from the Baltimore Orioles to the Los Angeles Dodgers http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-jose-peraza-jersey , but the trade market hasn't yet lost its best position player.I'm looking at you, J.T. Realmuto.Although they're far out of the National League East race in the first year of their rebuild, the Miami Marlins aren't obligated to trade their All-Star catcher. Realmuto is only 27 and pulling in just a $2.9 million salary, and free agency won't beckon him until after 2020."Any deal, unless it's something that's in the best interest of the Miami Marlins and our long-term goals of bringing a championship to South Florida, we're not going to do anything rash, nothing emotional," Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said, per Matthew DeFranks of theSun-Sentinel."We know where we're at. We know where we want to go."Even Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo, who needs to upgrade at catcher more than anyone, publicly declared his intimidation by Realmuto's price tag in June:MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM MLBNetworkRadioPump the brakes on a #Marlins #Nationals JT Realmuto trade.#OnePursuit President Mike Rizzo on quot;Power Alleyquot;: ZgOCs5KzSOAs high as Miami's demands may be, however, a trade could happen for one simple reason: He's worth it.For starters, consider Realmuto's Baseball Reference wins above replacementin relation to Machado in 2018:Realmuto:3.7 WAR in 74 GMachado:3.1 WAR in 101 GRealmuto has played in 27 fewer games Tucker Barnhart Jersey , in part due to paternity leave and a bone bruise in his back that required a disabled-list stint. Yet, he's still been more valuable than Machado.The idea here isn't to start a Machado bash-fest. He's a four-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glover who was pretty good even in a "down" year in 2017. And despite his less-than-great defensive ratings, his elite bat has made him one of Major League Baseball's best shortstops this year.It's just that in this case, he's up against a guy who's become the best player at the most important position on the diamond.Mitchell Layton/Getty ImagesRealmuto's offensive performance had already been on a steady upward climb through his first four major league seasons. In 2018, his bat has officially become a weapon to the tune of a .304/.355/.529 slash line and 37 extra-base hits, including 13 home runs.Realmuto hit .290 with a .337 on-base percentage across 2016 and 2017, so what he's doing in those departments is nothing new. It's his slugging percentage that's changed the most, and not by accident.The best recipe for power hitting is to start by swinging at good pitches and then aim to get under the ball and hit it hard. Realmuto is handling the first part by swinging more aggressively within the strike zone. He's also handling the second part, as his average launch angle and exit velocity are up:Since Marlins Park doesn't do Realmuto any favors, his offensive excellence is captured best by his 146 OPS+. He's the only catcher with an OPS+ north of 140 this year, and the firstto cross the threshold since Buster Posey and Devin Mesoraco in 2014.It gets better, as elite hitting is just one of the services Realmuto provides.Another is running the bases, and the emphasis is on "run." His average sprint is 28.6 feet per second, which is the highest of any catcher.Yet another is controlling the running game. Realmuto has nabbed 41 percent of attempted stolen bases. At work http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-harvey-jersey , there is an average pop time (the time between when the catcher receives the ball and when his throw reaches an infielder) of 1.88 seconds. That, also, is the fastest of any catcher.For all his athletic gifts, Realmuto's defense wasn't without flaws earlier in his career. Per Baseball Prospectus' in-depth catching metrics, he struggled with blocking and framing pitches in 2015 and 2016.Those flaws have all but evaporated in 2017 and thus far in 2018. Indeed, his framing might be better than ever. He's getting called strikes at career-best rates both inside the strike zone (87.1 percent) and outside the strike zone (8.5 percent).In all, Realmuto has become baseball's best catcher because he can do no wrong in any facet of the game. He's a far better hitter than anyone at the position, as well as the best baserunner and arguably the most well-rounded defender.Since creatures like this are exceedingly rare, it's not surprising there's no truly relevant precedent for what kind of package might be good enough to acquire Realmuto.The only thing to go off of is what's been reported. To this end, Jon Heyman of Fancred reported in January that a trade with the Nationals would have to start with Victor Robles, who presently rates asBaseball America's No. 6 overall prospect.This was before Realmuto's value skyrocketed, so it's fair to assume the Marlins won't budge unless somebody offers them multiple elite prospects. Otherwise, they'll hold on to their biggest prize.Still, never say never. All it takes is one enterprising GM with a treasure trove of prospects and a vision for his team with the best catcher in baseball behind the plate.And then Scott Schebler Jersey , maybe just a phone call.

If the Colorado Rockies hope to reach the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time in club history, they’ll need to beat the teams they’re expected to beat.The Rockies will get another chance Tuesday night in the series finale against the Los Angeles Angels at Angel Stadium.The Rockies (71-60) missed an opportunity to move into a tie atop the National League West by blowing a late lead against the Angels on Monday night in a 10-7 loss.Article continues below ...Colorado had moved ahead 7-5 on a grand slam by DJ LeMahieu in the eighth inning and appeared on the verge of handing the Angels their seventh straight defeat, but Los Angeles came back with five runs in the bottom half of the inning courtesy of five walks from the bullpen and a bases-loaded two-out throwing error by shortstop Trevor Story.The loss left the Rockies a game behind the Arizona Diamondbacks, who lost 2-0 at the San Francisco Giants on Monday night.Colorado fell to 25-25 this season against teams below .500.They’ll get a chance to improve on that mark over the next eight games, all against teams that entered Tuesday with losing records. On the flip side, Colorado has the second-most victories against teams with winning records (46-35).During one stretch this summer, Colorado faced 46 consecutive opponents with a winning record, which tied for the longest stretch in NL history. The Rockies went 30-16 in that span.The Angels (64-68) avoided losing seven in a row for the first time in two years.Reduced to playing spoiler, Los Angeles was swept over the weekend by the American League West-leading Houston Astros at Angel Stadium.The Angels took their first lead since Aug. 19 with a four-run fourth inning on Monday night, moving ahead 4-2 on a three-run homer by Shohei Ohtani. Mike Trout then hit his first home run since July 31 to give the Angels a 5-2 lead.Ohtani is 4-for-8 in his past two starts with two home runs and five RBIs.“He’s impressive off the charts,” Angels outfielder Eric Young Jr. told Fox Sports West after the game. “The natural talent that he is, I’m glad that we’ve got him on our team.”Ohtani mainly starts against right-handers Scooter Gennett Jersey , and Colorado is scheduled to start left-hander Kyle Freeland, leaving Angels manager Mike Scioscia with another tough decision.Freeland (11-7, 2.96 ERA) is 5-1 with a 2.25 ERA in 14 starts since June 16.Freeland, a Denver native and the eighth overall draft pick in 2014, has pitched at least five innings in his past 14 starts, allowing more than three earned runs just once.“Kyle’s been so consistent,” Rockies manager Bud Black told MLB.com after his last outing. “That’s the thing I’m really proud of and impressed by, just the consistency over the last 3 1/2 months. He’s taking the ball deep into the game, his strike-throwing ability, his ability to make big pitches at certain key parts of the game — as a second-year pitcher, he’s made big strides since his rookie season.”Freeland has never faced the Angels in his two-year career.After 102 major league relief appearances, Angels right-hander Noe Ramirez will make his first career start on Tuesday.Ramirez (4-4, 4.76 ERA) earned his first career save on Monday night.
