Welcome to New York, David Fizdale. New teammate, Giancarlo Stanton, clobbered a National League high 59 homers, which led to a National League MVP award. Catcher Gary Sanchez hit 33 home runs to go along with 90 RBI for the Yankees last season. And this year, shortstop Didi Gregorius currently leads the Bronx Bombers in […]
HOUSTON Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge, already showered and dressed, was at his locker packing up his things about a half hour after his RBI groundout capped a three-run, ninth-inning rally that helped steal back a win that was there and gone, then there again. You could tell from Judge’s smile and the extra oomph […]
The Baltimore Ravens traded up to draft quarterback Lamar Jackson behind Joe Flacco, which means the latter’s clock is ticking. Flacco mustered 3,141 passing yards and 18 touchdowns against 13 interceptions last year. Those who own his jersey might argue otherwise, but it was a typical Flacco line. He’s a career 61.7 percent passer who […]
We win games. All of us are smart. All of us love to win. None of us like losing, Jackson told reporters, comparing the quarterbacks. Every quarterback’s goofy. Every player out here is goofy. Don’t think they’re all serious. Keep me busy, Darnold said of his message to his marketing team this week. Less time […]
Despite having already orchestrated one of the most aggressive offseasons in the league, the Los Angeles Rams might not be done yet. The Rams are expected to make a strong attempt to trade for New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., whose already tenuous relationship with team brass appears to be worsening. Probed under […]
The Chicago Bears acted similarly to how the Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Rams loaded up around a young quarterback last offseason.
The issue with Lotulelei over the last few years was that he wasn’t as good as now former teammate Kawann Short in penetrating as a pass-rusher, thus relegating him to a gap-eating role that didn’t fully suit him. Lotulelei was solid, but Poe is much better at that assignment. Both Short and 2016 first-round pick […]
Evan Gattis tends to be the player who most often lands in the proper draft range for my valuation of him, and part of that has to do with his having as good a chance as anyone at leading the position (fantasy-qualified, not on-field) in plate appearances thanks to his serving as the Houston Astros’ […]
This wasn’t the original plan. NFL owners in May voted to move Super Bowl 55, which had been scheduled to be played in Los Angeles, to Tampa Bay. The shift came as a result of weather-related construction delays at the new LA stadium site, which will instead host Super Bowl 56 in 2022. (More on […]
The offense struggled without TE Rob Gronkowski, managing only one TD. The Patriots prevailed only because of three missed FGs by now-former Bucs kicker Nick Folk and Jameis Winston’s last-second incompletion at the goal line. But there’s no sense worrying about lost style points, and now the Patriots have a chance to get a winning […]
He has five interceptions, including one to seal a 10-3 victory against Buffalo in a wild-card game.
The Seahawks had a disastrous game in Arizona on a Thursday night with the Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor injuries, which turned their season from domination to desperation. They’ll do their part to sneak back into the playoffs, putting pressure on the Falcons to come through, too. Russell Wilson will run around and pick apart […]
