Month: February 2018

Yu Darvish Jersey signed last week, and now one more big free agent is off the board.

Going into Saturday at the 2018 Winter Olympics, the medals race looked very similar to previous days: Norway, Germany and the Netherlands were in the top three, in that order. While Germany led all of them in gold medals with nine, the other two had six. In the evening, the men’s figure skating medals were to be handed out, which was the biggest on the day.

Game Mens Ken Crawley Jersey The early morning saw three events with medals given out: men’s 15-kilometer individual cross country skiing, women’s 5000-meter speed skating and women’s aerials in freestyle skiing. The medals for those events didn’t all go to the top countries in the medal count, which certainly shook things up.

In freestyle skiing, Belarus picked up the gold thanks to Hanna Huskova, while China’s Zhang Xin and Kong Fanyu managed silver and bronze. In speed skating, the Netherlands added to its medal count 锟斤拷 unsurprising given its dominance in the sport 锟斤拷 when Esmee Visser took gold. Martina Sablikova of the Czech Republic took silver while Nicklas Grossmann Jersey Natalia Vorinna, an Olympic Athlete from Russia (OAR), took bronze.

Finally, in cross country skiing, Dario Cologna of Switzerland took the gold, Simen Hegstad Krueger of Norway took silver and Denis Spitsov of OAR managed bronze.

The Padres have reportedly signed former Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer to a massive eight-year deal that’s worth $144 million.

Hosmer reportedly had offers on the table from the Royals as well, but either San Diego offered him more years and money, or he was just ready for a fresh start with a new team. Regardless, Hosmer is a Padre now, and it won’t be long until we’ll find out how his power will play in Petco and against a steady diet of NL pitching.

The Hosmer signing wasn’t the only thing that went down on Saturday night. The Twins traded for Rays starter Jake Odorizzi, which gives them the starter they so sorely needed after Ervin Santana went down with a hand injury. The Rays also traded for Angels first baseman C.J. Cron for some reason, and then DFA’d Corey Dickerson, their All-Star designated hitter, also for some reason.

A trade is definitely coming for Dickerson. He hit .282/.325/.490 with 27 home runs in 2017, and he would be a great fit for a variety of AL teams. But even assuming that, all any of this does is clear a really small amount of salary. And while it looks like the Rays might be burning it all down, they haven’t tossed the kerosene on the fire yet.

New Mexico’s starting five was recruited from Sudan, Arkansas, North Carolina, Illinois and California.

They’re obsessing more about the suspension cloud hanging over Ezekiel Elliott and Jerry Jones and the anthem than Dak Prescott and defending their NFC East title in Dallas. The good news: The 3-3 Cowboys will play five of their last nine games at home, and the 3-3 Redskins will be asking Kirk Cousins to carry them behind an injury-ravaged offensive line Sunday night at FedEx Field. The bad news: Four of the Boys’ final nine games are against the Chiefs, Seahawks and Eagles (twice).

They had been pulling their hair out in Pittsburgh, even though the 5-2 Steelers should win the division in their sleep, with Ben Roethlisberger musing again about retirement and Antonio Brown throwing a sideline hissy fit and Martavis Bryant, suspended Sunday against the Lions, proving he hasn’t learned a thing from his 2016 season drug suspension.

The Packers also were left seething about a head shot by Panthers LB Thomas Harris after an interception in the third quarter that knocked WR Davante Adams out of the game with a concussion.

Hardy easily could be ranked No. 1 on this list, and perhaps he should be given the details surrounding the domestic violence incident that led to a 10-game suspension in 2015. Hardy then made several inappropriate comments and was a distraction while playing for the Cowboys. He showed no contrition in an interview with ESPN’s Adam Schefter that offseason.

A side note: Turner’s son, Nolan, is a freshman on Clemson’s national title team, coached by Dabo Swinney — his dad’s roomie at Alabama.

Time for colleges and TV to thank taxpayers “for making this game possible.”

Tuesday on ESPNU, taxpayer-funded New Mexico played 942 miles away at taxpayer-funded Boise State.

BSU’s had two from California, one each from Colorado, Texas and Australia.

As long as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has thrown his hat into the sports radio ring, why not use his double-muscle to right some sports wrongs?

For starters, the Mets’ “Winter Special” is a “No Fees” tickets purchase come-on. Imagine that — the price of the ticket is the price of tickets! More evidence that these tack-on fees are what they stink like: unrestricted scams.

Cousins would reportedly welcome a reunion with 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. The first-time head coach was Cousins’ offensive coordinator with the Redskins during his first two NFL seasons.

Authentic Tony Jefferson Jersey When you look at the standings and see the Steelers perched atop the AFC North with a 6-2 record and a 2 ?-game Authentic Robert Ayers Jersey lead over the Ravens, entering Sunday’s game at the Colts, you’re not inclined to wonder: What’s wrong with the Steelers?

But quarterback Ben Rothlisberger hasn’t been the Roethlisberger of the past. Entering Sunday, he’s sporting his lowest passer rating since 2008 (82.7), his lowest completion percentage since 2006 (61.1) and is on pace to throw 18 interceptions, which would tie the most he’s thrown in a season.

Authentic Javorius Allen Jersey How soon before Bridgewater gets into a game is the question.

And how will the offense operate differently now that Bradford, who arrived in Minnesota last September, has a year in the system?

I feel like we’ve had a really good offseason so far, just being with the team, just being able to go through things in detail, he said. You know, I’m really excited to actually sit down and start game planning for Week 1, to get into New Orleans and figure out how we’re going to attack them.

Silver lining: Minnesota’s second- and third-team offense were scoring juggernauts, and the highlight had to be this nifty two-point conversion, courtesy of Taylor Heinicke with no time on the clock, to give the Vikings the victory.

Before the game, Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer explained to ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi that his teams are so successful in true road games in part because there are fewer distractions than at home, and, You take only 70 players. Yeah, only 70. That is three for every position, including kickers and long snappers.

As even state schools become unaffordable for legit students, there always is a ton of dough available for football. Given the prescribed missions of our colleges, it seems criminal.

Cincinnati relies on a lot of draft picks to play, which makes them look better at drafting than they have been. They have drafted a number of decent role players, but have failed to find stars. Dennard has one interception in three years. William Jackson, last year’s first-round pick, missed his entire rookie year.

I hate to tag Flowers as a bust already 锟斤拷 he still has time to change how people view him 锟斤拷 but right now he looks like a bad pick. After some down drafts, Jerry Reese has landed some really good players recently with Beckham, Landon Collins and Weston Richburg. No one from the 2012 class remains on the team.

With the very important caveat that no one has ever really left Bill Belichick’s nest in New England and been good, it is worth noting we could see some serious turnover for the Patriots coach this offseason in terms of his staff. Belichick won’t care, for sure, at least for a few weeks. And he will likely encourage guys like Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia to seek employment in spots that will benefit their careers (and not totally interfere with his plan for world domination).

This is not getting as much play as it should: the Packers essentially firing the only guy who has been GM since 2005 and also making massive coaching staff changes is a pretty huge deal.

What on earth is happening in Cincinnati right now? The Bengals had made up their minds about how to handle the future of Marvin Lewis, allowing the coach to walk away without a new contract. Then the Bengals go out and win their last two games and it somehow might have convinced Mike Brown to give Lewis one more shot.

Kaepernick, Cutler, Peterson 鈥?It is far less likely, it would appear, that there will be pre-draft resolutions to the free agent status of tailback Adrian Peterson and quarterbacks Colin Kaepernick and Jay Cutler.

Authentic Kids Aaron Dell Jersey And you need to follow through with that plan.

Lynch resolution? Some within the league remain convinced that tailback Marshawn Lynch will come out of retirement to play for the Raiders, his hometown team. But he remains contractually tied to Seattle and the Raiders would have to work out a trade with the Seahawks or wait for Lynch to be released.

It is something that the Raiders ideally would like to have resolved by the draft, having lost tailback Latavius Murray in free agency. The Womens Simon Despres Jersey draft is very deep at running back and the Raiders might want to know going in exactly what their situation is at that position.

That’s better than the 4.4 million drawn to the Miami Dolphins’ rout of the New York Jets in the same slot a season ago, but it barely moved the needle.

Thursday Night Football was the week’s biggest loser, down 40 percent, despite being telecast on NBC and NFL Network 锟斤拷 as well as streamed by Amazon.

The 10.9 million viewers drawn to the tri-cast, pitting two second-division teams, was a season low for TNF.

NBC’s Sunday Night Football and ESPN’s Monday Night Football also posted double-digit declines.

On SNF, the Dallas Cowboys’ win over the Oakland Raiders drew a respectable 19.2 million viewers 锟斤拷 but it was down 26 percent from last year.

On MNF, the Atlanta Falcons beat the Buccaneers in a game won by a field goal. Yet viewership was down 16 percent from 2016’s Carolina Panthers-Washington Redskins game.

The National Football League on Wednesday inked a monster TV rights deal that will move Thursday Night Football to Fox.

TNF will move to Fox beginning with the 2018 season, the NFL and the network announced Wednesday.

The Thursday telecasts had aired on CBS and NBC the past two seasons after the Tiffany Network had exclusive broadcast rights to the game in 2014-15 锟斤拷 the first two years Jamie McGinn Jersey the NFL offered the TV-rights package.

Terms of the Fox-NFL deal were not disclosed, but reports put the price of the five-year deal at about $3.3 billion 锟斤拷 or roughly $60 million per game for the 11-game slate.

The NFL said the agreement marks the fifth media rights deal between it and Fox Sports, dating back to the agreement struck in December 1993 that helped solidify Fox as a major broadcast network.

Los Angeles Chargers: See above, but for Phillip Rivers instead of Eli Manning.

The Eagles’ rushing attack will try to fare better than the Saints’ vaunted one, which was held to 80 yards on 24 carries against the Vikings in the divisional round. They’re better off sticking with their base one-back, three-wide receiver, one-tight end set instead of trying two-tight to run the ball. When the Vikings go into nickel to counter, they take out a pretty good run defender in weakside linebacker Ben Gedeon.

The Lakers had been winless in games without Lonzo Ball this season until their past two outings, both of which saw monster games from Clarkson (available in 51.9 percent of leagues). He has averaged 31.0 points, 8.5 assists and 6.5 rebounds in those two games — unsustainable numbers, but perhaps ones that suggest that he should have a larger role even when Ball (knee) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) are available.

Jordan has been ruled out of Monday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves; his fifth missed game in a row. As mentioned above, Harrell and Johnson are worth considering for streaming/DFS purposes in his absence.

The Memphis Grizzlies are wracked with injuries. JaMychal Green (ankle) is listed as out for Monday, and Jarell Martin (left hand) is listed as questionable. James Ennis III (calf) and Chandler Parsons (calf) are still out, and Dillon Brooks (illness) is listed as questionable.

New York Giants: If the Giants continue to bottom out, they may decide it’s time to move on and rebuild around a new quarterback, while trying to salvage trade value out of a franchise stalwart who’s been there since the 2004 draft. If their season goes really south, they could even be in line to pick a new franchise quarterback at the top of the draft.

That has made it imperative that Nesta Silvera from nearby Plantation American Heritage signs in February. Silvera has been a long-time Miami commitment but is taking other visits and has chosen to make his official announcement on Feb. 7. Miami also has hosted ESPN 300 defensive end Andrew Chatfield and four-star end Dennis Briggs and has interest in ESPN 300 tackle Keondre Coburn, a Texas commit. — Adelsonchargers_034

And this could test the resolve of everyone involved, not just on issues of race and free speech but also 锟斤拷 importantly 锟斤拷 economically.

It’s not difficult to see a whole bunch more NFL players joining what Colin Kaepernick started by kneeling during the national anthem 锟斤拷 not to protest police treatment of African Americans, as Kaepernick did, but to protest Trump and assert their First Amendment rights. Already on Saturday night, Oakland Athletics player Bruce Maxwell became the first player in Major League Baseball Tyler Johnson Jersey to kneel during the anthem.

Jordan Reed, TE, Redskins: Let’s be honest: Reed has been a fantasy disappointment. He’s played in six games and his best outing is a 64-yard performance with two scores on Oct. 23. Given where Reed likely was taken on draft day, his poor play and absences from the lineup likely have soured many an owner’s prospects. He’s now falling into the Gronkowski zone come draft day; take him if you want, but proceed with caution. If he can’t play Sunday, the Redskins will rely on Vernon Davis.

Jones has said he has the league’s best interests at heart and that his efforts with regard to Goodell’s contract are not related to Elliott’s suspension. He wrote to Goodell that it is not the time for the league to make such a financial commitment to Goodell, with the NFL facing a series of challenges to its popularity and prosperity.

The owners are scheduled to meet Dec. 12-13 in Dallas, and Goodell’s extension could be completed before or during that meeting. The NFL does not plan for owners to take another ratification vote, as Jones is seeking, once negotiations between the compensation committee and Goodell are complete, according to people close to the situation. The owners voted, 32-0, in May to authorize the committee to negotiate the deal with Goodell.
