Tigers pitcher Travis Wood nearly loses finger in crossbow accident, report says

Posted on by

Tigers pitcher Travis Wood is getting a cast removed from his finger Thursday, according to Detroit News, after an obscure injury.
Adidas Sami Vatanen Authentic Women's Jersey - NHL Anaheim Ducks #45 Green Salute to Service
According to the report, Wood nearly had the right index finger on his non-pitching hand snapped in two a month ago in a crossbow accident.

Wood signed with the Tigers this winter with an invitation to spring training, where he is expected to compete for a spot in the rotation. Wood has a career record of 47-59 and a 4.26 ERA, but he struggled with the Padres last season, finishing 4-7 with a 6.80 ERA.

Things didn’t work out that way.

Robinson was inconsistent at best and downright disastrous during stretches with the Saints, leading him to hit the bench on multiple occasions.
Jack Johnson Kids Jersey
Youth Brett Kern Jersey After his rookie deal expired, Robinson moved on and produced a competent campaign with the Chargers, but a three-year deal with the Colts ended poorly and led him back to free agency after one season.

It seemed like Robinson was closer to being out of football than he was to a meaningful role on a playoff team, but the Eagles signed him for one year and $775,000, stuck him in the slot, and got the best season of his life.

In ESPN leagues in which a mere one active catcher is needed, I mostly ignore the position until the final round or two. There is not much reliable depth, but then again, I do not want to spend a high selection on Gary Sanchez, either. Catchers are not like other hitters in terms of dependability, either statistically or for durability. Buster Posey is awesome; he averaged a mere 13 home runs the past two seasons! Give me Yadier Molina or Welington Castillo in the final round. — Eric Karabell

My approach to drafting catchers is going to vary greatly dependent upon league format, but Womens R.A. Dickey Jersey whatever it is, I regard the catcher position as the most woefully thin position in fantasy baseball, and it’s indisputably not close. Using Player Rater measures, which don’t adjust for position scarcity, only six catchers in 2017 cracked the top 300, and not a single one made it into the top 100 overall. The No. 10 catcher, Yasmani Grandal, batted .247 with 22 home runs, 58 RBIs and 50 runs scored, thresholds that were attained in combination by 71 other non-catchers.

Many NBA players are ill-equipped for life after basketball. Bosh, who was raised in a tech-savvy home (his mother was a longtime employee of Texas Instruments), appeared as though he would be the exception.

This has been a disastrous 5-year, $48 million-deal for Washington since 2016.

He isn’t solid anymore, is often injured, is recently coming off a 10-game PED suspension and is going into his 10th season at age 31. There’s no upside to keeping him for Romeo Authentic Johnny Bucyk Jersey Crennel.

Reed simply can’t stay healthy with a variety of injuries in his supposed prime (age 27). When he has played of late, he has looked more pedestrian than dangerous athletic pass-catcher.

The good news is the Jets are fueled up for the makeover. According to, they are more than $73 million under the NFL salary cap, and that’s before factoring in moves like the releasing of defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson ($11 million cap hit). They also are sitting on eight picks in the 2018 NFL Draft, including two second-rounders from last year’s Sheldon Richardson trade.

Youth Carmelo Anthony Jersey Matt Forte has announced his retirement from the NFL. Should the Jets opt for Cousins at QB, they would be well positioned to draft Penn State’s Saquon Barkley, either by staying at No. 6 or making a slight trade up the board. Barkley would still be a luxury pick there.

SI reported the two sides mutually agreed to the change.

The New York Post reported that ESPN’s Joe Tessitore will replace McDonough.

The MNF booth will have an entirely new look this season, as McDonough’s broadcast partner the past two years, analyst Jon Gruden, left to coach the Raiders. Earlier in the day, the Post reported that Peyton Manning had turned down a reported offer of $10 million to serve as the MNF analyst.

Tessitore is taking on one of the most iconic broadcasting jobs in sports. Since MNF debuted in 1970, only five men have filled the post: Keith Jackson, Frank Gifford, Al Michaels, Mike Tirico, and McDonough.

A year ago, the Cardinals had to prevent Chandler Jones from reaching free agency.

Posted on by

Mens Don Barclay Jersey This year, they don’t have to worry about that as the team’s crop of impending free agents doesn’t include anyone worth franchise tag money.
Elite Men's Kendall Lamm Navy Blue Jersey: NFL Nike Houston Texans #63 Rush Vapor Untouchable
The Falcons haven’t used the franchise tag since it was given to Brent Grimes in 2012, and there isn’t a reason to use it in 2018. The only candidates are Dontari Poe and Adrian Clayborn, but neither is worth the huge numbers for defensive linemen.

Nope, not this team either. Center Ryan Jensen is the top impending free agent for the Ravens, but the franchise tag doesn’t split up offensive tackles, guards, and centers. That makes the price of tagging a center an unreasonable way to keep Jensen around.

I don’t think Vince (Williams) stopped crying until after halftime, and that’s one of the most gangster dudes on the team, safety Mike Mitchell said, via The MMQB’s Greg Bishop. People had to grab him by the face mask and be like, ‘Yo, you’re the middle linebacker now. You can’t be sniffling.’

If the Patriots think Lauletta has what it takes to be an eventual starter in the NFL, odds are a lot of other teams will too. But what’s especially silly about assuming New England and Lauletta are a match made in heaven is that there’s still plenty of evidence that he’s not the next Garoppolo at all.

Lauletta is projected to go in the fifth round by and there are serious concerns about his arm strength. Garoppolo was a second-round pick due mostly Womens Tre’Davious White Jersey to his lightning fast throwing motion. There weren’t many questions about his arm talent.

Plenty of other quarterbacks 锟斤拷 like Washington State’s Luke Falk and Marshall’s Chase Litton 锟斤拷 have more physical ability than Lauletta. And that matters to Belichick too. Seven years ago he took Ryan Mallett, a 6’6 SEC passer who’s nothing like Garoppolo or Lauletta.
Authentic Shareece Wright Jersey
Will the Patriots take Lauletta in April? Maybe. But the landing spot doesn’t look any more likely than 31 other teams.

NBA wrap: Bottom-dwelling Magic upset Celtics despite Kyrie Irving’s 40 points

Posted on by

It seemed like a simple solution. Kyrie Irving scored 40 points, the Celtics were at home, playing against the hapless Magic ranked second-to-last in the Eastern Conference. But the improbable happened Sunday in Boston.

Despite Irving’s 40 points, seven rebounds and five assists, the Celtics somehow lost 103-95 as the Magic stole a surprising road win.

Boston held a one-point first-half lead, but the Magic outscored the Celtics 32-12 in the third quarter. Irving tried to lead a fourth-quarter rally, but Orlando held on despite scoring only 13 points in the fourth.

Pistons guard Avery Bradley came in to the night averaging almost 16 points per game, but had just seven points (on 3-of-12 shooting) in a 101-100 loss to the Nets.

Heat (27-19) at Rockets (32-12) at 8 p.m. ET — Houston with James Harden back, defeated the Warriors Saturday night to get back within shouting distance of the Western Conference top seed. The Heat have quietly been rising up the Eastern Conference standings due to balanced scoring and opportunistic defense. Miami, 15-10 on the road, has won nine of its last 11 games.

Butler also missed Saturday’s win over the Raptors, which ended Minnesota’s two-game losing streak. Butler’s injury is not believed to be serious, but at this stage in the season, the Timberwolves are choosing to be cautious.

Crawford, averaging just under 10 points per game, is dealing with a toe injury. Tyus Jones should earn more playing time Monday with Minnesota thin in the backcourt.

Cozart is still using his old shortstop glove — a faded black Wilson A2000 with six years of wear on it. It measures 11.5 inches and is slightly smaller than the typical third baseman’s glove. Cozart keeps one of those in his duffel bag, and he’s gradually breaking it in with daily games of catch.

In Cozart’s Cactus League debut, the Angels’ infield was playing in, and Cleveland’s Ryan Hanigan hit a bolt directly at Cozart. Cozart reached out in self-defense and snagged the liner, fully cognizant that it could just as easily have been a chopper that required him to charge the ball and make an off-balance throw. Such is life at third base.

LeBron James sends praise to Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid after big loss

Posted on by

The Cavaliers struggled Thursday against the 76ers, falling, 108-97, but LeBron James took the high road and made a classy move after the game sending praise to Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.
Women's Mikael Granlund Premier White Reebok Jersey: NHL Minnesota Wild #64 Away
While the Cavaliers (36-25) should have been able to win against the 76ers (33-27), Philadelphia had a particularly strong night with six of its players reaching double-digits. Simmons put up 18 points with eight assists, while Embiid scored 17 with 14 rebounds.

Limited Jordan Jenkins Jersey Embiid also took to social media to send James a message writing, Trust the Process??? Always a great time playing against one of the best to ever play the game #summer2018goals, which only added more speculation to the rumors that have been going around about Philadelphia trying to land James.

Bell believes the Steelers understand his worth but he senses his negotiations are viewed through the prism of the running back market, in which Atlanta’s Devonta Freeman is the game’s highest paid at $8.25 million per year. Freeman has averaged 96.9 yards from scrimmage per game over the past three seasons.

Bell said the constraints of the running back market aren’t his doing and don’t encapsulate his profile as a player.

They are using it as me being compared Darren Sproles Authentic Jersey to another running back or my status or what Devonta Freeman has. I can’t control what he’s done on the field, Bell said. I only can control what I think I’m worth and what I’ve done on the field. That’s where the problem lies. ‘Freeman’s making this, we can’t give you this.’ … To me, that’s not fair. I didn’t sign Devonta’s deal. That’s the position I’m in. I want to make my own decision.

Westbrook was also asked about his developing relationship with his former teammate.
Mens Rodney Hudson Jersey
[We’re] communicating, and that’s about it, Westbrook said. All the other stuff is irrelevant. Just keeping it cool. Talking when we need to.

Thomas currently last in the NBA in defensive efficiency and is shooting 35 percent in the process. Windhorst believes only way to fix the team chemistry may be to trade the diminutive guard, even though he has not heard of anything concrete indicating that will happen.

I think if the Cavs want to salvage this season with the spirit of the team they have to seriously look at doing that, Windhorst said. But also, I can’t sit here and look you in the eye and tell you that Isaiah will not recover enough to be a great player again in two months, I mean, it’s a pretty big risk, but I’m going to tell you that if you watch the way the team plays, the spirit when LeBron is out there with Isaiah is absolutely palpable.

Wiggins signed a five-year extension before the season worth close to $150 million, but he has not taken the kind of developmental step this season many expected.

Posted on by

Without Butler on the floor, Wiggins is averaging almost five more points (22 per game) than when Butler is with him (17.1). But Wiggins’ defensive RPM of minus-1.39 still ranks 429th out of 493 NBA players. Butler, on the other hand, ranked as one of the top five players in his position in that category.
Men's Majestic Milwaukee Brewers #8 Ryan Braun Replica Navy Blue Alternate Cool Base MLB Jersey
Towns, too, is being counted on for defensive improvement. The first-time All-Star has shown franchise-changing offensive ability and is on track to receive a Wiggins-like extension of his own, but his lack of intensity at times on defense has frustrated many within the Timberwolves organization. Butler has repeatedly exchanged words with the 22-year-old on the floor, trying to motivate him to become better defensively. If ever there were a time for the lessons to take hold, it would be now. Towns remains confident he can help carry his team without its All-Star swingman.

With Forte gone and Bilal Powell older (29) with his share of durability issues, the Jets need to reboot on the ground, and they likely will bring in multiple backs through both avenues.

No Wildcat for me, he said. This isn’t the Dolphins with Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams.

Jackson finished his college career with 9,043 passing yards and 69 touchdown passes, but it is his ability to run as a quarterback that truly makes him special.

Limited Womens Virgil Green Jersey The 6-2 signal-caller ran for 4,132 yards and Authentic Dion Phaneuf Jersey 50 touchdowns in his career with the Cardinals.

The 6-5 Toth reported to the Combine at 290 pounds, which is 15 pounds below his college playing weight, because being lighter will make the military testing easier. Toth did not participate in any of the Combine drills for offensive linemen Friday but will have a workout for NFL scouts before April’s draft.

Limited Womens Benoit Pouliot Jersey Toth said he prepared as best he could for the Combine at Parisi Speed School in Fair Lawn, N.J., while keeping in mind his football training could only go so far.

I can see the transfer over between the agility (drills), the sprints and quick-twitch drills, he said. But what’s actually difficult are the explosive drills and strength drills because that doesn’t really carry over as much (to military testing).

Saquon Barkley: Want to be part of ‘something bigger than yourself’

Posted on by

Saquon Barkley ran headlong, without any hesitation, into the NFL scouting combine Thursday.
Nike Carolina Panthers #1 Cam Newton Name & Number NFL T-Shirt - Black
The Penn State running back, who some NFL talent evaluators believe is the top-rated prospect in this year’s draft, said he has no cause for concern if any of the NFL’s have-nots at the top of the draft board, including the winless Cleveland Browns, select him in April.

But any team, in my mind, that would pick me would be a good fit,” Barkley said. … I’m just going to keep my head low and Doug Martin Womens Jersey be ready to work.

After meeting with reporters, Barkley posted 29 reps on the bench press.

Barkley rushed for at least 1,076 yards in all three of his seasons at Penn State, including 1,496 yards in 2016 and 1,271 yards last season. He also caught 54 passes in 2017 and closed out his career with back-to-back seasons with 18 rushing touchdowns.
Bart Starr Authentic Jersey
If they were to pick a quarterback, Tannehill would embrace the competition, according to Gase.

Ryan would never shy away from anybody coming in at that position, the coach said.

Gase was less forthcoming on the future of wide receiver Jarvis Landry, who received the franchise tag. Gase said the tag was the best thing for us and for him to know that’s there.

The Dolphins reportedly are interested in trading Landry, who made more receptions in his first four seasons (400) than any player in NFL history. If they don’t trade him, they could sign him to a long-term contract or sign him for the franchise tender — an estimated $16 million — in 2018.

Tannehill is trying to rebound from two major knee injuries. The latter occurred in August during a training camp practice, requiring reconstructive surgery. Jay Cutler signed a one-year contract to replace him.

Miller stops 41 shots, Ducks beat Stars 2-0

Posted on by

The Ducks entered the game tied with the Los Angeles Kings for third place in the Pacific Division, and the Stars are in third in the Central Division. Not surprisingly, there was playoff intensity and caginess at the start. The Ducks went into the power play where Lindholm scored with two shots on goal and got two in eight seconds with the man-advantage, their only four shots in the period.

We played so well the last two nights, we needed to get rewarded, Hitchcock said. As well as we played tonight, we probably played better (Wednesday) night.

At this time of the year, with so many teams involved in the West in the playoff race, every shift matters, every period matters, every game matters.

Tobias Rieder, making his first appearance with the Kings after arriving from Arizona in a trade Wednesday, played on Los Angeles’ third line. . After three power plays in the first period, there were none in the final two periods. . Lehtonen said it felt like a playoff game: It’s going to be like this the next 20 games. It’s exciting for the players and the fans.

According to left winger Johnny Gaudreau, who had a goal and two assists against the Coyotes, the Flames are looking at every game as a must-win situation.

There’s a tiny difference between punts muffed from left-footed punters vs. right-footed punters, but it will probably be negated by the fact that neither team is facing anything new.

But when Belichick finally walks away from the NFL, the rise of left-footed punters appears to be another way his legacy has impacted the game — whether he calls it a coincidence or not.

Anthony Davis vigorously punched his arm through the air as the final horn provided a fourth straight triumphant ending to a fourth straight prolific performance. The All-Star then faced the exuberant New Orleans crowd with both arms raised and began exchanging high fives with beckoning fans along the edge of the court.

Before the puck drops on this important Eastern Conference clash, the Devils (31-22-8) will honor the franchise’s all-time leading scorer, and two-time Stanley Cup champion, Patrik Elias, retiring his No. 26 sweater.

Once the game begins, however, all eyes will be on No. 40 in the home red jersey as Michael Grabner makes his debut for the Devils after being acquired in a pre-deadline trade with the New York Rangers — a first between the two teams — on Thursday.

Regarding the former subplot, Devils coach John Hynes had this to say of Elias: He’s such a strong symbol of the past, of where this organization has been. He epitomizes what a Devil is. He’s a highly talented player, but he’s driven, he’s competitive, he’s loyal, he’s got high character.

Releasing Cushing, who was suspended 10 games last season for his second violation of the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, will save the Texans $7.6 million against the salary Womens Paul Konerko Jersey cap.

Brian Cushing has meant a great deal to the McNair family and few players have meant more to the Texans franchise over the course of the last nine seasons, Texans chief operating officer Cal McNair said in a statement. His work ethic, toughness and leadership, not only as a member of the team, but in the Houston community, is to be commended, especially his dedication to the military and their families. Brian will always be part of the Texans family.

Womens Corey Dickerson Jersey Former Eagles and Broncos safety Brian Dawkins had plenty of big moments during his playing career. This weekend has to be even bigger. Voters selected Dawkins as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2018, the Hall of Fame announced Saturday.

The Eagles drafted Dawkins out of Clemson in the second round of the 1996 draft. He spent 13 seasons setting the tone for Philly’s defense. He finished his career with the Broncos.

Sebastian Janikowski’s 18-year tenure with Raiders over

Posted on by

After missing all of last season with a back injury, Sebastian Janikowski’s Nino Niederreiter Jersey time with the Raiders is officially over.
Women's Al MacInnis Premier Red Adidas Jersey: NHL Calgary Flames #2 Home
The Raiders informed the veteran kicker they will not be retaining him for the 2018 season, ESPN first reported Wednesday.

Raiders informed kicker Sebastian Janikowski today that they do not plan to bring him back for the 2018 season, per source. An 18-year run with Raiders comes to an end.

The former Florida State kicker and Polish native kicked a 57-yard game-winner in 2008 to beat the Jets in overtime for the longest overtime kick in history. His 55 career field goals from beyond 50 yards are also an NFL record.
Elite Mens Tony Jefferson Jersey
Janikowski’s 1,799 career points and 414 field goals for the Raiders rank 10th in NFL history.

Should the Cowboys use the franchise tag on Lawrence by March 6, when the window closes, the team and player still would have until July 16 to agree to a long-term contract. That would be to Dallas’ benefit since a long-term deal would significantly lower Lawrence’s salary cap number.

Under the franchise tag, Lawrence would make about $17.5 million, all of which would count against the team’s salary cap next season. The Cowboys have about $20 million in cap space for 2018.
Mens Mikkel Boedker Jersey
Cowboys will not place franchise tag on DeMarcus Lawrence tomorrow as that window opens but will do so by March 6 w/ understanding the goal is to reach a long-term deal. Both sides have until July 16 to make that happen.

Our first goal is to sign him to a long-term deal, Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones said at the Senior Bowl last month. To me, the only reason you use a franchise tag is to hopefully protect yourself if you can’t get a long-term deal signed that you like. That’s normally the route we like to go. Certainly we’re going to roll up our sleeves and see if we can do something with DeMarcus without having a franchise tag.
