The Snakepit ReviewNew,14commentsThe Playstation MLB sim has a lot of the same things as previous editions, but some new wrinkles, and changes to old modes, make it worthwhile.EDTShareTweetShareShareMLB: The Show 19. The Snakepit Review(NOTE: All screenshots in this article were taken by me in-game)If you’ve wanted to have a Baseball video game that has licensed MLB teams and MLBPA players, but is a standard game and not an Out of the Park GM sim, The Show has been your only bet since about 2014. Thankfully, Sony has used their exclusivity well, and has put out solid games year after year (Glances vaguely in the direction of Madden to see if that point was clear.)With yearly sports games, though, it can be hard to justify a new purchase if subsequent editions of the game are too similar, save for updated rosters. On the other hand, if you change around things too much and, to use a baseball term, swing and miss, it’s going to affect your sales of MLB: The Show 20.I think this year’s edition threads that needle pretty well, for the most part. Look, I would hang that flag above my childhood bed even if I wasn’t born at sea.The biggest change to the actual in-game play is that hitting has become somewhat harder. Using the zone receptacle , if you use “Zone” type hitting, becomes very important as you try to square up a pitch and get good contact. Also, on higher difficulty levels, the pitches come at you faster. However, it’s not so much harder that you can’t adapt to it with enough playing time. It is a bit of an adjustment if you’re used to previous editions of The Show, however. The presentation of the game remains solid, with a few updates. Matt Vasgersian, Mark DeRosa and Dan Plesac are still your play-by-play announcer and color guys, respectively. Do DeRosa and Plesac still sound way too similar that it’s hard to differentiate between the two sometimes? Reader, they do. Heidi Watney of MLB Network joins as a sideline reporter, which is a fun new wrinkle that makes the “in-game” broadcast seem more like an actual broadcast. Also, as a new feature, you can unlock certain announcer calls for Vasgersian to say for Home Runs/etc. Even before you unlock them, you can preview them. What follows is some extremely cursed 2019 energy: Other game modes Logan Morrison Jersey , like “Retro Mode”, which lets you play an RBI Baseball type casual game, and “Diamond Dynasty”, which let’s you create your own online team and through your skills and microtransactions, you can dominate, are still there. As well as “Franchise”, which is more-or-less the same as previous year’s franchise modes. New game modes, and some modifications to an old one are the hallmarks of the 2019 edition,The game is realistic in the sense that a Diamondbacks team based off of last year’s only has two runs late in a gameOne of the newest mode is “March to October.” This has a double meaning, as the MLB season takes place from the months of March to October, but also means your team is marching to October. Get it? GET IT?!?In this mode, you can choose any of the 30 MLB teams. When you choose one, a video plays as a setup to this season. I can summarize the Diamondbacks video as such:“Boy, y’all were hot trash last year, huh? Lost your best player too, eh? Well, you could still be good. Maybe. Good luck with that.” In this mode, a season is mostly simulated, except it will stop and put you in control in a game situation where you have to pull out a win, usually. If you do, your team gets “Momentum” and will win a lot of the next few simulated games. If you lose, you get cold and lose games. The goal is to succeed enough that you make it to the Playoffs and the World Series. The general idea is that with enough breaks or momentum, any team can go all the way, even the Marlins.Occasionally, it will throw player challenges at you. You take control of a single player in a game, and if you do well, that player will get a stats boost for the rest of the season. It’s a fun mode for those who might not want to go face-first into Franchise mode, but still want to experience a season.March to October main screenThe biggest change to The Show this year is that the game’s marquee mode, “Road to the Show” has undergone a lot of cosmetic changes, and some updates and wrinkles that make it a new experience. Apparently, it’s all story-based? You start out as a Cowboy? Maybe this will lead to the invention of Baseball or one of the leagues, but it just seemed out of place. Also there’s a lot more Horse customization options than I remember ever needing to be in Baseball. This horse hit .244 in his first season in Double-A.... Wait, I’m being told I loaded up the wrong game on my PS4. ApologiesLast year, RTTS introduced the “Archetype” system Orlando Arcia Jersey , where when you created your player you chose what kind of player they could grow into (A power guy, contact, speedster, high-velo pitcher, high-control pitcher, etc.) The system is still there, but the types have been reworked a little bit. You can now choose any archetype no matter your position if you choose to be a hitter. Last year you were limited to what you could choose by if you were infield/outfield/catcher. Also, the Max Cap for all attributes if off, and you can now get up to 99 in every category. Some will just be harder than others to do so, but it is possible.New in RTTS as well are personality types, and connections. Basically, how you react to the dialogue options given to you can put points in a personality type, and if you level those up, you get certain perks you can use in the game. The personality types are:LIGHTNING ROD: You’re just kind of random, like wearing packages of lunch meat as a hat, but you are a catalyst for your team.HEART AND SOUL: You just care so so so so so much, and people see that. CAPTAIN: You’re a leader. You’re the guy talking to the cops after that night club incident in Miami that somehow left a Lamborghini in a tree. MAVERICK: You’re kind of a dick, to be honest.You also build up relationships with your teammates, which gives you and the teammate boosts. If you really nurture those relationships, you become the pinnacle of stereotypical-male friends: “Bros.”There are also mini-games during workout sessions that are basically timing-based. If you do well, you get more attributes. That’s basically the long-and-short of RTTS stuff, but the new modes do add a layer of depth. The last new game mode I’ll go over in this review is “Moments” In this mode you can relive, or change, moments in Baseball history. There are individual moments you can try to recreate (Jose Bautista’s Bat Flip in the ALDS) or you can relive a certain stretch of a player or team’s history (Babe Ruth, The 21st Century Cubs, etc.) If you remember around NBA 2K11or so, this is very similar to the Michael Jordan history mode. It’s another fun challenge mode, but you do kind of get taken out of it cause not all of the past players were licensed, so “Boston Braves Second Baseman” is quite literally the name of a player. https://twitter.com/david_j_roth/status/907978087614251008My favorite quirk of The Show is still the ability to import, through a USB stick, your own music in the game. I will one day recreate, in RTTS, this tweet:Overall, MLB 19: The Show is a deep enough baseball sim Jonathan Villar Jersey , and has enough changes, to justify purchase if you have a Playstation 4 and the funds. As I mentioned before, for its specific type it’s the only game in town. However, it is a good one, and worth your time. Chris Davis broke his record-breaking slump.

The Yankees have problems.CDTShareTweetShareShareMLB Bullets got a hitBrian Fluharty-USA TODAY SportsNo spoilers on Game of Thrones. I haven’t seen it yet. Of course, I probably will have seen it by the time you read this, so spoil away. (Please don’t.)This says it all: Orioles first baseman Chris Davis got a hit, ending his record-setting 0 for 54. Three hits, in fact. Two of them were doubles. Joon Lee talks with Davis and his Orioles teammates about how Davis broke out of his slump. All of the Orioles praised Davis for his professionalism and dedication as he worked his way through the worst slump in MLB history.It’s kind of a cruel irony for Davis that while he struggled through this streak, the hottest hitter in baseball was Athletics outfielder Khris Davis. In fact, Davis (with a K) because the first player in the history of the A’s to hit ten home runs in his first 18 games.Young Rockies ace German Marquez came within five outs of a no-hitter against the Giants on Sunday. He ended up settling for a one-hit shutout.Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado was visibly upset that he couldn’t snare the grounder that ended up being the only hit of the game.The Astros have now won nine straight games. Daniel Kramer looks at the Astros current hot streak.Today is Jackie Robinson Day in baseball, and unfortunately that means another story about the falling numbers of African-Americans in the sport today. Bob Nightengale looks at the current state of the situation and MLB’s efforts to increase African-American representation, both as players and executives. Nightengale quotes Ken Griffey Jr. who sums it up very well: “It’s not a black problem or a white problem, but it is a baseball problem.”David Schoenfield looks at the current state of the National League East.Cliff Corcoran looks at MLB’s proposed rule to limit pitching changes by forcing pitchers to face at least three batters. Corcoran looked at every game so far this season and concludes that if this rule were in place in 2019, it would shave an average of ten seconds off the length of a game. (The Athletic sub. req.) Corcoran points out that in many cases, this rule would just force a pitching change to happen later in an inning and only after a struggling pitcher got lit up for one or two more hits. This rule doesn’t seem like a good idea to me. Try the pitch clock first. The Mets have reportedly spoken to the representatives of free agent pitcher Dallas Keuchel. No deal is close, but the Mets are feeling the pressure to replace the struggling Jason Vargas.Both free agent pitchers Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel have reportedly lowered their asking price. Ben Weinrib looks at what the two pitchers are now asking for and which teams might bite.Graham MacAree thinks that the contract extension signed by Braves infielder Ozzie Albies may end up being the new normal. Albies’ deal has been widely criticized for being too owner-friendly, but MacAree thinks that it may be the first of many deals like that.Mark Feinsand has eight players who are candidates for a contract extension. Hopefully a better one than Albies signed. Michael Beller explains how Reds pitcher Luis Castillo’s decision to throw more changeups has led to terrific results this year.The Yankees got bad news as reliever Dellin Betances will miss at least another six or seven weeks after a setback in his rehab program.Mike Axisa writes that yes, the Yankees have had terrible injury issues this season, but the problems with the Yankees are much deeper than just having too many injuries.At least CC Sabathia came off the injured list and pitched the Yankees to a win on Sunday.R.J. Anderson argues that the Dodgers have completely messed up reliever Joe Kelly, who was one of their big free agent signings this past winter. Anderson reports that the Dodgers have changed both what Kelly throws and the way he’s used out of the bullpen. The results have been very poor, so far. Reds outfielder Yasiel Puig says he’s excited to “beat my old teammates” as Cincinnati plays in Dodger Stadium this week.Free agent pitcher Edwin Jackson has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Athletics, the team he played for last season.The Indians designated infielder Brad Miller for assignment, despite him hitting a solid .250/.333/.438 in the early going this year. Miller responded to the DFA by saying “Obviously they don’t want the best guys up here.”David Laurila speaks with Reds reliever Michael Lorenzen about hitting as Lorenzen transitions into being a two-way player.Mets broadcaster Ron Darling will take a leave of absence as he will undergo surgery to remove “a large mass from [his] chest.”Some kid flew a drone over Fenway Park during a game. Don’t do that. For one, it’s illegal.The Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs and the Rochester Red Wings hit a combined 15 home runs in Saturday’s game. The IronPigs won, 20-18.And finally, more minor league home run news. Orioles minor leaguer Jean Carlos Encarnacion hit a walkoff grand slam and stood and admired it for a really, really long time.Two runners had scored before he started to run. And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.

    Spring Training has become big business. The minor league players get almost none of it."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Chicago Cubs recapsChicago Cubs minor leaguesChicago Cubs essaysChicago Cubs game threadsWrigley Field renovationsFull archiveLibrary Bleed Cubbie Blue Community GuidelinesCurrent time in ChicagoBCB Specials & Site InfoWinter 2019 music threadsCubs StoriesScheduleRosterStatsYahoo Cubs newsYahoo Cubs team pageYahoo Cubs reportYahoo Cubs depth chartYahoo Cubs transactionsYahoo Cubs photosOdds Shop About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub 鉁旵hicago Cubs spring trainingMLB essaysReminder: Players don’t get paid for Spring TrainingNew Corey Kluber Jersey ,107commentsSpring Training has become big business. The minor league players get almost none of it. CDTShareTweetShareShareReminder: Players don’t get paid for Spring TrainingAl YellonTickets for Tuesday’s Spring Training game between the Reds and the Cubs at Sloan Park cost between 20 and 58 dollars. The players who actually play the game will get almost none of it. That’s because players don’t get paid for Spring Training.In an article published last week, Ted Berg called attention to the plight of minor league catchers, most of who are working for subminimum wages, who are then expected to spend their days helping the pitchers get their tosses in. In exchange, they get breakfast, lunch and a $25 per diem allowance. (The per diem goes up to $95.50 if they’re in uniform for the day’s game.) MLB justifies this by saying that minor league baseball is akin to an apprenticeship and that Spring Training is something like an audition. But as Berg notes, few of those catchers have any hope of actually playing in the big leagues in 2019. Most of them are just there to catch the pitchers who will actually be playing in the majors this year. Spring Training is unpaid because that’s what it’s always been. It’s a holdover from the days when major league ballplayers actually had winter jobs and had to get back into shape after a winter layoff. Today’s major leaguers train 12 months a year. Spring Training still exists because it’s a big money maker for the teams and the cities that host them.Of course, that Spring Training is unpaid really isn’t an issue for major league ballplayers. Anthony Rizzo isn’t going to have trouble finding the money to rent a house for a month and provide for his family. He’s going to get a big check two weeks into the season. Even a second-year player like David Bote, who only got paid half of the major-league minimum last season, shouldn’t have had any trouble putting enough money aside to get himself through the month of March in Arizona. But what about the 16th-round pick who got a $15,000 bonus two years ago? What about the Latin American player who got a similar bonus and is struggling to survive in a foreign country and is probably sending money home from his meager salary anyway? These guys have to figure out how to survive for six weeks on no salary. And woe to the player that gets left behind in Extended Spring Training once the season starts. Those players might not see a paycheck until mid-June when the short-season leagues start.MLB’s explanation that Spring Training is something like an audition is laughable. For one, all of these players are already under contract and are employees of their team. On top of that, every ballplayer is auditioning for their job every single day they take the field. But as Berg notes in his article Ricky Vaughn Jersey , the minor league players are mostly there to fill in for the major league players where needed. They’re there to help the major leaguers warm up. They are there to play three innings because their team doesn’t want its stars playing more than five innings and risking injury. Basically, they are not there for themselves. The days of a minor league coming to Spring Training and showing the brass what they can do is long gone. The teams have scouts and cameras at every minor league game a player plays in. The front office and coaches already know what they can do. How they perform in a meaningless game against generally sub-major-league competition is not going to earn the vast majority of them a trip north with the major league team when Spring Training ends. If they do earn a trip north, it has more to do with what the player did the previous minor league season than what they did in Arizona or Florida in March.There was a bill to legally exempt Spring Training for Arizona’s minimum wage laws was introduced in the Arizona state legislature last year, although it appears to have died without reaching the floor. But this effort is no doubt part of MLB’s efforts to exempt minor leaguers from all labor laws, including minimum wage laws, as seen in the “Save America’s Pastime Act” that was snuck through Congress and signed into law as part of a giant spending bill. Obviously this problem could be solved through collective bargaining, but the Players Association is stuck in a bind. They could ask for Spring Training to be fully paid, but if they did so, the owners would demand a concession from the players in exchange. The MLBPA is understandably reluctant to ask their members to sacrifice something in exchange for something that would primarily benefit non-members. That’s not what unions generally do. But someone has to raise this issue. And shame on MLB and the MLBPA if they don’t do the right thing by the minor leaguers that work so hard for a chance to play in the majors. Or in many cases, work so hard so that the major leaguers can be better players. But Spring Training is big business. Fans spend millions of dollars every spring to see their heroes take the field and almost none of that money goes to the players. Remember that the next time you watch the Cubs play this spring. ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani gave yet another glimpse of what he could do at the plate just hours after announcing he planned to undergo Tommy John surgery and return next season only as a hitter.Ohtani’s bat was broken by a Yovani Gallardo slider, but he was strong enough to punch it into center for a single that tied the score and ignite a four-run rally Tuesday to lead the Angels to a 4-1 comeback over the Texas Rangers.Ohtani, Justin Upton Michael Brantley Jersey , Taylor Ward and Kaleb Cowart all pushed in runs for the Angels.Despite being something of a sensation the first half of the season, Ohtani said he doesn’t feel he has proven he is a legitimate two-way player.“It’s been a small sample size with just one season, so can’t really say I proved to the world that I can continue being a two-way player,” Ohtani said.Texas’ Joey Gallo proved his 40-homer season last year was no fluke, hitting his 40th of this season off Matt Shoemaker in the third. Gallo has three more homers than singles (37) this season.Gallo became the fourth Rangers player to have back-to-back 40-homer seasons.“To do that, and to stay healthy all year, that’s hard to do,” Gallo said. “You’re playing 162 games, and the second year is always toughest. I knew there would be a dip with people making adjustments so it wasn’t something where I said ‘I’m going to hit 40 again no problem.’ “Gallardo (8-7) looked like he might make the lone run hold up, holding the Angels scoreless on three hits through five innings.But it all went wrong in the sixth. Kole Calhoun led off with a double, and after he advanced to third on a groundout, Mike Trout was walked intentionally.That led to Ohtani’s single off reliever Martin Perez, before third baseman Jurickson Profar’s throwing error on a grounder by Upton allowed Trout to score.The Angels scored another run after shortstop Elvis Andrus and second baseman Roughed Odor collided going for an Andrelton Simmons bouncer up the middle to load the bases. Ward walked to force in a run.Cowart lofted a deep sacrifice fly to left that scored Upton and the Angels had a 4-1 lead.TRAINER’S ROOMRangers: LHP Mike Minor has been shut down for the season. Used exclusively as a reliever by the Royals last season http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , he emerged as the Rangers’ most effective starter. He went 12-8 with a 4.18 ERA in 28 starts. The 30-year-old Minor threw 157 innings and that was simply deemed enough for this season.Angels: Ohtani has decided to have Tommy John surgery next week in Los Angeles by Dr. Neal ElAttrache. The announcement was expected and Angels manager Mike Scioscia confirmed it means Ohtani will not pitch next season.OHTANI THE HITTERThe two-way star admitted to frustration at not being able to continue as a pitcher next season.“I am disappointed that I’m not going to be able to pitch next season, but I try to take positive out of negative things,” he said. “Normal (pitchers) won’t be able to play at all next season, but fortunately I’ll play as a hitter.”Ohtani said he was uncertain if he would be ready to hit by opening day: “There’s no really set date, it’s going to depend on how the rehab goes and if there are no setbacks. I’ll have an update every four weeks or so after the surgery. I can’t give a timetable at this point.”SHOEMAKER STRONGThe right-hander gave up only the solo homer to Gallo in his five innings, allowing four hits and striking out seven without a walk. It was the best of his five starts since returning following forearm surgery that forced him to miss most of the season.It was likely his final start of the season.“I don’t know if there’s any more Show has to show this year,” Scioscia said.Said Shoemaker: “Just build off that, go into the offseason and keep getting better.”UP NEXTRangers: LHP Yohander Mendez (2-2, 6.04 ERA) is scheduled to start Wednesday in the series finale. He will be making his fifth career start after allowing a career-high in runs (eight) and hits (nine) in his last start against the Rays.Angels: LHP Andrew Heaney (9-10, 4.21) will attempt to even his record in his final start of the season. He’ll have to do it against a Rangers team he’s gone 1-3 against with a 7.50 ERA against in six career starts.

He had an RBI double Thursday night, but was injured during that at-bat:This is not good news; hamate fractures can take a long time to heal. And Caratini hit an RBI double in that at-bat after he injured his hand! In the meantime, the Cubs have recalled Taylor Davis from Triple-A Iowa:Davis isn’t really a long-term solution at backup catcher. The Cubs will likely have to go out and try to find a team willing to trade someone, and that cost might be high considering the Cubs don’t have much leverage at this point.

    BOSTON — Having flexed their muscles with wins in the first two games of the series http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , the Cleveland Indians send 15-game winner Carlos Carrasco to the mound against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night at Fenway Park.The Indians, who hit three home runs in coming back from a 3-0 deficit to win Monday night, hit two more Tuesday in the second game between the two division leaders, a 6-3 victory.Carrasco, 15-6 with a 3.33 ERA, faces left-hander Brian Johnson, who will try to help the Red Sox, losers of three games in three days, avoid what would be their first four-game losing streak of the season.Article continues below ...For the second straight night, Greg Allen and Melky Cabrera tormented the Red Sox. Allen went 2-for-3 to extend his hitting streak to 14 games and also drove in a run and made two outstanding catches and Cabrera had three hits, including a homer for the second straight game in the series — the third in a row overall.Two teams with substantial leads in their divisions — a hyped series that could be a playoff preview.“We just wanted to win tonight. That’s all,” said Indians manager Terry Francona. “I don’t care about that stuff.“They’re a really good team and we played a good game. But now we’ve got to play a better game tomorrow.”The Red Sox, who still lead the Yankees by eight games atop the American League East, have seen the lead chopped by 2 1/2 games in the last three days. They lost three in a row way back in April but have not lost four in a row all season.“We’re not swinging the bat well right now since (Tyler) Glasnow on Saturday, then the bullpen game on Sunday,” said Boston manager Alex Cora. “These guys. It seemed like yesterday we were waking up early but then they did a good job and today we were unable to get something going until that inning.“So, we’ll come back tomorrow and look for pitches in the middle of the zone and try to hit it in the air and hopefully they go out of the ballpark.”Speaking about the Indians Chad Bettis Jersey , Cora said, “It’s a tough lineup because they don’t strike out. They will put the ball in play; they found ways. So we got to be able to expand somewhere, probably up in the zone, and obviously down with the breaking ball late in counts. But I think it was more about them than actually Nate (Eovaldi, the starter and loser).”Carrasco, who has forced his way into the Cy Young talk, has gone 7-1 in July and August and has thrown back-to-back seven-inning shutout efforts his last two times out. He is 1-2 with a 6.83 ERA in seven games — five starts — lifetime against the Red Sox, 0-1 in four games — three starts — at Fenway.Johnson is 4-3 with a 4.00 ERA overall but is 3-0 as a starter in August, with the offense helping him out. He has yielded 17 hits and 12 earned runs in 17 2/3 innings in those starts but does have 19 strikeouts over that span.Brock Holt is 4-for-5 (.800), Xander Bogaerts 3-for-7 (.429), J.D. Martinez 9-for-25 (.360) with two home runs and Mitch Moreland 5-for-14 (.357) with three homers against Carrasco. But Mookie Betts is 1-for-8 (.125) and Ian Kinsler 11-for-50 (.220) against the right-hander.Johnson has never faced the Indians. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Thanks to an infusion of young talent, the Tampa Bay Rays overcame a slow start to win 90 games and spawn lofty expectations for next season.What was supposed to a rebuilding year for the Rays, who trimmed payroll in the winter and purged the roster again, might have been even more special if not for the success of AL East rivals Boston and New York.The Red Sox repeated as division champion with 108 victories and the Yankees won 100 to earn AL’s top wild-card berth.The Rays finished 18 games behind Boston and 10 behind New York, but weren’t eliminated from post-season contention until Sept. 24.“I hope we don’t have two 100-win teams in our division next year,” manager Kevin Cash said. “But if we do Jonathan Lucroy Jersey , we’re one of them.”First-time All-Star Blake Snell led the major leagues with 21 wins and an AL-leading 1.89 ERA, rookie Joey Wendle played solid defense while hitting .300 in 139 games, and C.J. Cron had 30 homers and 74 RBIs after being acquired during a trade in spring training.“As an organization there was some amount of satisfaction that came with the work that we’ve been doing the last several years to prepare a young group coming through our minor leagues … and to see that finally hit our major league team,” general manager Erik Neander said.“When we look back at this year, hopefully it will be seen as the year that started off a run of many competitive, playoff achieving seasons,” Neander added, “and hopefully, a championship in there at some point.”The Rays lost 12 of 15 to begin the season, digging themselves into a hole few people felt they were capable of escaping after a winter that saw them trade Evan Longoria, Steven Souza Jr., Corey Dickerson and Jake Odorizzi and lose starting pitcher Alex Cobb to free agency.They trimmed salary again in July, unloading pitchers Chris Archer, Nathan Eovaldi and Alex Colome, as well as All-Star catcher Wilson Ramos and Denard Span to make way for the youth movement that keyed a second-half surge.The Rays went 41-25 after the All-Star break, including 19-9 in September. They were 9-1-2 over their last 12 series.“Coming out of spring training we didn’t know what kind of club we were going to have on the field as far as wins and losses,” Cash said http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-chad-bettis-jersey , “but we knew we had a good group of guys, a good core group of guys and a lot to look forward to … with some of younger players getting opportunities.”One of the keys to overcoming the slow start was creative use of the bullpen that included the introduction of “openers” — relievers who started games and generally faced from three to nine batters.A “bullpen day” starter, by comparison, usually pitched deeper into games though normally no more than twice through an opposing team’s lineup.Prior to the debut of the “opener” on May 19, the Rays ranked 22nd in the majors in ERA. From that day forward, they were third-best behind the Dodgers and Astros.“I think any time you’re trying something a little bit different, you don’t know how it’s going to be perceived and how it will work out,” senior vice president of baseball operations Chaim Bloom said. “You know you’re going to learn along the way, and we did learn. Overall, we were very pleased with how it went.”Some things to know about the Rays:DOMINANT SNELLSnell had 27 starts in which he allowed two or fewer runs, most by an AL pitcher since Wilbur Wood had 27 for the White Sox in 1972. The last two AL pitchers to win at least 21 games and a sub-2.00 ERA were Roger Clemens for the Red Sox in 1990 and Ron Guidry for the Yankees in 1978.RARE COMPANYThe Rays, who made the playoffs four times in six seasons from 2008-2013, have won at least 90 games six times over the last 11 seasons. The Red Sox (seven) and Dodgers (seven) and Yankees (six) are the only teams with as many or more during that stretch.NOT SATISFIEDCash called finishing with a winning record an “accomplishment,” but noted the standard for the organization is much higher.“We’re not going to settle for just the feel good story … but you’ve got to be proud of what’s taken place to this point, and we are,” the manager said.

    A look at Carlos Santana’s impressive exit velocity early in the season"One of the best things about Statcast is that it gives us something worthwhile to talk about in the first week of the season. Wins and losses are just as important now as they are in September Tim Anderson Jersey , but most individual player stats are worthless. You can’t tell much from the single statistic of hit or even a home run besides the fact that they probably hit the ball pretty well. The discussion starts and stops with “this thing happened” in each of those instances. Exit velocity is a whole different monster. Exit velocity is something that you can use on a case-by-case basis on its own to see what a player is doing — we can say without a shadow of a doubt that Carlos Santana has hit the ball really dang hard in his first few games. He might not for the whole season, but that’s okay. It’s more than just “he hit it,” instead it now becomes “did you see this fuckin guy hit a baseball 112.8 miles per hour, then follow that up with 108.3 miles per hour? Cripes!” I guess what I’m trying to say is: Our boy is back. Carlos Santana has made no secret about the fact he loves Cleveland, and is thrilled to be back with the Indians. Call it playing up the fans if you want, but at this year’s fan fest he told eager Tribe fans, “Last year I missed you guys. Right now, I’m so excited to be back to my natural home.” He had some equally rosy comments leading up to his free agency in 2017. Even after today’s game, where the Indians lost in devastating fashion to the lowly Chicago White Sox http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-konerko-jersey , Santana’s bat came through as one of the few bright spots. He told reporters after the game he’s enjoying the game of baseball, when he wasn’t before. He attributes his hot start to feeling comfortable in both body and mind. How do you not love him? Through the Indians’ first five games, Carlos Santana’s bat has been the lone light in the darkness for the Francisco Lindorless Tribe (Hanley Ramirez and his pair of home runs is a distant second). Sample sizes are still extremely small right now, which means it’s easy to do something like take a blanket look at how Carlos has hit every ball that he’s made contact with. So let’s do that. March 2899.8 mph flyout vs. Jose Berrios95.2 mph flyout vs. Jose BerriosMarch 30111.8 mph single vs. Blake Parker88.2 mph flyout vs. Trevor May76.5 mph pop out vs. Jake Odorizzi83.9 mph groundout vs. Jake OdorizziMarch 31112.8 mph double vs. Martin Perez108.3 mph single vs. Martin Perez99.9 mph single vs. Martin Perez102.6 mph single vs. Michael PinedaApril 1106.4 mph single vs. Ivan Nova79.0 mph GIDP vs. Ivan NovaApril 3110.1 mph single vs. Nate Jones99.4 mph groundout vs. Carlos Rodon81.3 mph flyout vs. Carlos Rodon84.7 mph single vs. Carlos RodonGo ahead and file that under “not bad.”In the March 31 game — a loss to the Twins — Santana held the mark for the four hardest-hit balls among Indians batters. That speaks to be how bad the Indians lineup is, sure, but it also shows the kind of great contact that Slamtana is making now that he’s back where he feels the most comfortable. Entering play today, Santana ranked sixth in average exit velocity at 97 miles per hour, and fifth in hard hit percentage at 66.7 percent.Similar to the dearly departed Yandy Diaz, though Welington Castillo Jersey , Santana’s launch angle could use a boost as it sits at 10.2 heading into today (and his .500 batting average on balls in play probably isn’t going to stand forever).still, for this one fun little metric, in the silliest time of the year, Carlos Santana is doing something really, really well. Let’s enjoy that for a minute. BOSTON (AP) — Hyun-Jin Ryu is used to pitching in big moments and on big stages.Four years before being signed by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2012, the South Korean left-hander was on the mound for his home country when it defeated Cuba in the gold medal game of the 2008 Summer Olympics in China.He added to that history in 2013, becoming the first South Korean-born pitcher in major league history to start a playoff game when he had the ball for Game 3 of the NL Division Series against the Atlanta Braves.Ryu could pass even more milestones during the Dodgers’ World Series matchup with the Boston Red Sox. He’s trying to become just the second South Korean-born player to win a World Series ring, joining Byung-Hyun Kim.He’ll be on the hill as Los Angeles’ starter for Game 2 on Wednesday night opposite Boston’s David Price. It will be Ryu’s next opportunity to get past his recent issues pitching on the road.Ryu had a 1.15 ERA in nine starts at home during the regular season, but it increased to 3.58 on the road. He’s also had some issues away from Dodger Stadium during this postseason.He pitched seven shutout innings in Los Angeles against the Braves in Game 1 of the NLDS. He had mixed results in his two NL Championship Series starts in Milwaukee. He pitched fine in Game 2 but got hit hard in Game 6 David Ross Jersey , yielding seven hits and five earned runs in the Dodgers’ 7-2 loss.“Obviously, it’s a stadium that I’ve pitched in the most, therefore I feel pretty comfortable pitching in Dodger Stadium. And having that run of success definitely builds more confidence,” Ryu said Tuesday through an interpreter. “I guess that’s the reason why.”Ryu said having better command of his pitches than he did against the Brewers will be a key to success against a stacked Red Sox lineup that features Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez, who became the first MLB teammates to finish first and second in batting average and slugging percentage since 1904.“If I actually commanded my off-speed pitches to get ahead in the count, I think there would have been a different result,” Ryu said. “Obviously, tomorrow I’m going to use all the pitches I can throw.”Fenway Park can be imposing for any pitcher, especially those pitching here for the first time.Ryu said walking into the historic stadium and seeing the towering 37-foot Green Monster for the first time on Monday was humbling.“When I was in Korea http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , I only saw Fenway Park through TV,” Ryu said. “It took me so long to actually get here at the Fenway Park. My initial reaction to the Green Monster is it’s very tall.”Ryu is in the final season of the six-year, $36 million deal that he signed in 2013. He becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2019.While Wednesday night’s start could conceivably be his last in a Dodger uniform unless the series extends beyond four games, Ryu isn’t concerned about his future at this point.“No, I don’t think about it at all,” he said. “My current focus right now is making sure that my team wins tomorrow’s game. So I don’t really have time to think about such things.”

Goin’ for the sweep!"After a miserable start to the season that saw them lose 8 straight games, the Cincinnati Reds finally have themselves a little winning streak. They will look to continue that this afternoon against the Miami Marlins http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , and will hope to collect their first sweep of the season along the way. After a tough first outing, Sonny Gray settled down and pitched 6.2 innings and allowed only 1 run against Pittsburgh last week. He unfortunately couldn’t overcome an offense that didn’t score and still took the loss. Hopefully he can build off of that today. Miami will counter with Pablo Lopez. Lopez (1-1, 6.10), will be making his 3rd start of the season today. Things haven’t been great for him in the early going Cheslor Cuthbert Jersey , as he’s given up 7 earned runs in 10.1 innings of work. Oh yeah, Our Friend Yasiel Puig returns to the lineup today.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — With a bottle of bubbly at his feet and a baseball with the inscription “300 Ks” in a case in his locker Willson Contreras Jersey , 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, 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 http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , 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, 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 Kyle Hendricks Jersey ,” 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, 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). Tom Szczerbowski/Getty ImagesThe assault charge against Houston Astros closer Roberto Osuna was dropped Tuesday as part of a peace bond agreement."I am pleased and relieved by today's court decision. Now I can begin to put these allegations behind me and focus on baseball Mike Montgomery Jersey ," Osuna said in a statement, per KHOU 11. "I want to thank my family, teammates and fans for believing in me. I am grateful to the Astros for providing me with the opportunity to play baseball and compete for a World Series championship."Osuna, 23, appeared at aTorontocourthouse Tuesday to make the agreement, which is similar to a diversion program in the U.S. and will require him to have no contact with the victim and stay out of trouble for one year, perCristina Tenaglia鈥?of CTV News."The Houston Astros look forward to Roberto continuing his commitment to be a productive and caring part of our community," the Astros said in a statement via KHOU11. "The Astros remain committed to increase our support regarding the issues of domestic violence and abuse of any kind. We have engaged with a number of local, state and national organizations - and we look forward to working with them in the short term and over the long term."Osuna was suspended 75 games by Major League Baseball after being arrested in May for assaulting a woman. A reliever for the Toronto Blue Jays at the time, the Astros later traded for Osuna while he was suspended.He returned to play in Toronto on Monday for the first time since being traded and was greeted by a chorus of boos before completing his 10th save for the Astros.

    Yesterday the world was woke to a true fact: Mike Trout is The King Of All Baseball."Why even bother? Yesterday was all about One Single Story. So today I celebrate. It’s almost ALL Trout.And why the hell not? Trout Day now ranks second in Halo lore only to a 2002 WS victory. And in the pantheon of Great Angel Days - where we also have Shohei Ohtani choosing the Angels Reggie Sanders Jersey , Vlad Guerrero choosing the Angels, Buzzie Bavasi giving Nolan Ryan a lifetime Free Agent contract, and Tony Reagins getting to the Winter Meetings in time to sign Adrian Beltre* - only Mike Trout Day holds the potential to move up into that #1 all-time slot.I would argue that if the Trout era results in at least 1 WS title, 2002 will move down from the only, to the first. And that makes the day that The Greatest Major League Baseball Player Of Our Generation committed the entire life span of his career to the Angels (and Angels fans) the very best single day in franchise history.We have soooo much fun ahead of us. If you can’t find a way to dig the shit out of it, that’s on you and you alone.I couldn’t be happier to gift you one whole day of Trout-Porn-HaloLinks:* Yes, I do know that those last 2 did not happen. That is known as sarcasm.A Little Bit Of Mike Trout NewsTo summarize, it’s an extension of 10 years at $36MM per year, with zero opt outs and a full no-trade clause..............That’s $360 million more, and a total of $430 million between now and when his contracts run out.To the consternation of many, this is a huge bargain for the Angels. FanGraphs seems almost angry......Craig Calcaterra seems to know that Arte could have afforded a lot more.....TheRinger uses the $ per fWAR math to see just how underpaid Trout will be. Basically, everything Trout produces above about 3.6 fWAR per season is free talent for Arte. They do state right up front that it’s impossible to pay Trout what he is actually worth in today’s terms. Which, I propose, should be proper motivation for somebody to look at how FanGraphs comes up with that valuation per fWAR in the first place, and start asking questions. That stuff wouldn’t pass the finance departments of my corporate customers, I can assure you...........But bundling all the upcoming dollars into one lump sum gives you one Mike Trout with a very significant achievement in contemporary sports history......But in overall history? There is still Floyd Mayweather. $450MM for 6 fights.............But...still...that is A LOT of money..........The deal impacts the thinking in more than a few other MLB Front Offices. I’m sure that more than one planning binder went into the shredder yesterday. But this list is, I think http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-cliff-pennington-jersey , pretty short. It is quite possible that the ‘bargain’ contract that Mike is going to be signing will create a a soft cap for guys like Jacob deGrom and Mookie Betts and Kris Bryant. The old “well, you want Mike Trout money but you, sir, are no Mike Trout” argument............For his part, Mike Trout appears to not be getting too wrapped up in all the money that he wouldn’t ever be able to spend in his lifetime......He seems to be more about family and friends...and amazing baseball......and taking the day off......So just what is that Mike Trout benchmark? Enos Sarris reminds everyone with one long smorgasbord of Trout Porn. (I sure hope you have a subscription!!!)............And for those who DO have a subscription to The Athletic, Mike Trout took over that site yesterday: Is Mike Trout worth $430 million? The answer lies in the metrics........Keri: At 12 years and $430 million, Mike Trout is still underpaid........Rosenthal: Angels owner Arte Moreno couldn’t let Mike Trout get away — and now the pressure is on.........The Angels needed Mike Trout to stay, and now the Angels need to be good..........Philadelphia is only kinda sad. Mike is such a good guy it’s hard, even for Philly fans, to flip so fast and start flaming their Chosen One. They are starting, but it should be weeks, and even months, but they will get their groove on. Probably in time for the Eagles first home pre-season game...........Mike was vested in the LAA pipeline. He knows what is coming to Anaheim...........We can observe media input on how we are ‘wasting’ Trout, transition to how Billy Eppler can start doing his job. As if Eppler needs any such advice from the writing community............Some writers have already pivoted to admitting that Eppler has already fixed things.............And smack in between those is FiveThirtyEight, which has a decent POV concerning age curves, but far less awareness of where things sit with LAA and the Astros. (I can’t believe how little import is being given to Shohei Ohtani right now as a superstar contributor. When he does get mentioned, it’s almost as an afterthought.)...........This is silly. Sure Joe Morgan Jersey , Arte has always treated Trout straight up. No monkeying around with service time, etc. But does the author, Bill Baer, have a first-hand statement from Mike Trout himself that the whole reason that Mike is agreeing to such team-friendly terms is a reward to Arte for being a union-friendly sport?............Looking forward, this season Trout will be eclipsing a slew of notable MLB careers. With years and years of potential still ahead of him (and us!)..........Athletes of all sorts were motivated to react with amazement.....Within MLB, the Internet lost its mind......And Bryce Harper joking was everywhere. With my favorite line being “Bryce Harper realizing he has to live Philly for 13 years without any possibility of Mike Trout coming.”...........Now that it’s official that the east coast media ain’t getting Mike Trout ever, they are finding religion. The Angels need to get good so that they have an excuse to start watching Trout be brilliant...........Andrelton Simmons sees what Eppler and Arte are doing with the farm and with Mike, and he wants to be a part of it all...........And about that media. Of course it is just coincidence that on the day that the Trout signing being in the works is made public, and the press comes to Tempe for a feeding frenzy, the Angels choose to feed them Philly cheesesteaks. Just a coincidence. Sure.............And now we can stop comparing Trout and Harper. “Because one remains a top three player ever and the other is still Good Hair JD Drew.”...........Bryce Harper went a pretty quick 0 for 3 on his tampering attempts.............Which nicely teed up Victor with the mic drop............Some Other StuffTrevor Cahill will be our LAA Opening Day starter.............Justin Upton...remember him?...........Arte lost one of those tractors that drag infield screens around. What a bad time to need a few extra grand..............Oh, and Alex Bregman also signed a contract extension. 5 years, $100MM...........The Astros also are signing an extension with Ryan Pressly. 2 years, $17.5MM...........And the Rays are extending Brandon Lowe. 6 years, $24MM............Tim Tebow sees himself on the verge of an actual MLB career............Bryce Harper did have a little sunshine in his day............Stephen A. Smith needs to give back his recent paychecks.............MLB taking their shackles off of the AFL..........This Fortnite playing among MLB players is getting out of hand..........Have no fear, people. Joe Torre is our own Inspector Clouseau and is on the case concerning some strike out phenomenon............... CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Bryce Harper has the Philadelphia Phillies thinking October baseball before even arriving in camp.The six-time All-Star outfielder and the Phillies agreed Thursday to a $330 million, 13-year contract Dave Concepcion Jersey , the largest deal in baseball history. Now a team that hasn’t had a winning record since 2011 is talking about winning championships.“Everybody talks about this picture behind us,” slugger Rhys Hoskins said on Friday about a photo hanging outside the clubhouse that captures the moment the team won the 2008 World Series. “There’s rally towels waving around, can’t see an empty seat, can’t see a place where people can stand. I don’t want to hear about it anymore. I want to feel it. I think we’re on our way and Bryce gives us a chance to be there.”The Phillies already liked their chances in the NL East after adding All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto, 2013 NL MVP Andrew McCutchen, two-time All-Star shortstop Jean Segura and reliever David Robertson to a club that won 80 games last season. Philadelphia led the division in August before collapsing down the stretch, going 16-33 the last 49 games.The 26-year-old Harper could be the final piece to get the team over the top, though his lucrative contract doesn’t preclude them from adding more. Dallas Keuchel, the 2015 AL Cy Young Award winner, remains unsigned.The Phillies’ odds at winning the division went from 2-1 to 5-4; the pennant from 7-1 to 4-1 and the World Series from 12-1 to 8-1.“We obviously got a lot better before the move,” Hoskins said. “There was a buzz around camp with the guys we got previously. But you bring in a guy like this and I think now we think and we know we can take the next step from last season to now this is ours. We feel that way. This is a confident bunch. You add a player like this and it makes everyone better.”That buzz Hoskins mentioned was even louder as everyone from ballpark attendants to team personnel waited for Harper to show up. He arrived on owner John Middleton’s private plane Friday afternoon and is expected to be introduced as early as Saturday after he takes a physical needed for the deal to be finalized. Two lockers were cleaned out for him inside the clubhouse.Middleton, who flew to Las Vegas last week for a second meeting with Harper and his agent, Scott Boras, signed autographs for excited fans a couple hours before the Phillies beat Pittsburgh 7-3 in an exhibition game.Harper already has been a hit at the box office before hitting his first home run. The team sold more than 100,000 tickets in only a few hours after Harper agreed to the deal. Demand for tickets for the opener on March 28 doubled on the secondary market.“I was pretty stunned by it,” McCutchen said of the news. “Wow, he’s coming here. It’s pretty cool. We’re all pumped about it.”Harper’s contract doesn’t include an opt-out clause and contains a full no-trade provision. Several players talked about the message that sends.“To hear that http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-cliff-pennington-jersey , it shows he’s committed to the city and all those rumors about him not wanting to play in the city, it throws those out and shows how committed he is to winning and build a legacy for himself and the city of Philadelphia,” infielder Scott Kingery said.Hoskins, who also is represented by Boras, said he never tried to sell Harper on coming to the Phillies. He offered to give Harper an honest perspective on playing in Philadelphia and for manager Gabe Kapler. Harper didn’t ask for any advice, however.“Through his meetings, he got all the questions he had answered,” Hoskins said.Harper is the biggest free-agent signing in Philadelphia sports and he’ll face pressure to help the Phillies win only the third World Series title in franchise history. He’s faced enormous expectations since appearing on a cover of Sports Illustrated as a 16-year-old in 2009 under the title: “Chosen One.” He’s wearing a Phillies uniform on the cover of MLB’s video game, and Philadelphia’s projected win total rose from 85 to 89 in Baseball Prospectus’ PECOTA program (Player Empirical Comparison and Optimization Test Algorithm), tied with Washington.Harper was the No. 1 overall pick by the Nationals in the 2010 amateur draft and was NL Rookie of the Year in 2012 at age 19. He was the 2015 NL MVP when he batted .330 and swatted 42 homers. But Harper has hit less than .250 in two of the past three seasons and only reached 100 RBIs last season.His numbers could skyrocket in a lineup filled with quality hitters and in a hitter-friendly stadium. Harper has batted .268 with 14 home runs, 32 RBIs, a .365 on-base percentage, a .564 slugging percentage, a .930 OPS and 48 hits in 50 games at Citizens Bank Park.“You throw that guy in any lineup and it’s going to make it dangerous,” Kingery said. “Lucky for us, he’s with us and he’s been doing some damage at Citizens Bank.”

    Albert Pujols is now alone in sixth place on MLB's all-time home runs list.Pujols hit his 631st career home run in the second inning of Wednesday night's game against the Chicago White Sox. The Los Angeles Angels slugger made the score 2-0 with a shot deep to left field off White Sox starter James Shields."Griffey was everybody鈥檚 hero growing up and that鈥檚 how I look at it John Kruk Jersey ," Pujols told reporters after he hit home run No. 630 against the Seattle Mariners. "I know I am a right-handed hitter, but everybody wanted to have that sweet swing. For me, I got a chance to become pretty good friends with him. ... It鈥檚 just really special to tie a legend and against a team that he came up with in the big leagues."Pujols moving into sixth place alone also has a little extra significance because one could argue it makes him the modern-era clean leader in home runs. Barry Bonds and Alex Rodriguez have eitheradmitted toor been accused of using performance-enhancing drugs.Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth and Willie Mays are the three other players ahead of Pujols. #31 retired, and other stories"Baseball history marches forth ... as always on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I bring a wildly popular Cubs-centric look at baseball’s past.

    SEATTLE (AP) — A brawl broke out in the Seattle Mariners‘ clubhouse Tuesday several hours before a game at Safeco Field.Shortstop Jean Segura and teammate Dee Gordon apparently tangled Robin Yount Jersey , while catcher Mike Zunino and other players tried to break up the skirmish.Moments after Gordon politely asked reporters to leave the locker room, the double doors burst open with players shoving and shouting. Segura was on the ground in the fracas.“Whatever happens in here stays in here,” Mariners star Robinson Cano said after a 5-3 loss to Baltimore. “It didn’t affect anyone in here. We let it go. We’re good. Everyone is good. We left that behind.”The Mariners have gone through a rough few months.Seattle was 46-25 on June 16 and 11 1/2 games ahead of Oakland in the wild-card standings. The Mariners are 77-62 and 5 ½ games behind the A’s in the chase for the second AL wild-card spot.“Things happen in a clubhouse,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “Our guys are working through it and talking through it. It’s unfortunate, but it happens.”Servais, who normally meets media members in his office before each game, spoke in the dugout before the game.“It happens a lot more than you know. Almost every year you see it. Sometimes it brings teams together,” he said. “Things reach a boiling point and you have to get it off your chest.”“With how our season has gone, the frustration mounts. Along the way http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-arcia-jersey , there are bumps in the road,” he said. Did Brad Keller give us a legitimate threshold for his performance in 2019?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Royals Trade Rumors & Hot StoveRoyals Minor Leagues & ProspectsRoyals Review ClassicRoyals Review Users GuideThe 100 Greatest Royals Of All TimeRoyals AnalysisBreaking down Brad Keller’s Opening Day startNew,14commentsDid Brad Keller give us a legitimate threshold for his performance in 2019?EDTShareTweetShareShareBreaking down Brad Keller’s Opening Day startPeter G. AikenAn Opening Day, Brad Keller was everything a staff ace should be. He went seven innings, gave up two hits with one walk and five strikeouts. Out of the 92 pitches he threw, Keller went to his four-seam 38% of the time, slider 33%, and his sinker at 29%. That’s an excellent pitch spread but you could make a case to lump the two fastballs together (four-seam/sinker) for a 71/29 percent ratio. For me, the pitches behave differently so they are their own separate entity regardless of velocity ties.Keller was pretty dominant at times Thursday afternoon. Both fastballs were used mainly early in counts http://www.brewersfanproshop.com/authentic-orlando-arcia-jersey , generally with even split between the four-seam and sinker. A disparity would occur when Keller fell behind the hitter, which he then relied heavily on the four-seam. The pitch was pretty effective for him. Keller didn’t allow a hit (7 BIP) with the four-seam and drew fouls (12) on three out of every five swings. His control with the four-seamer appeared pretty good as well, with just a 25% non-strike rate. However, he didn’t miss many bats with the pitch either- just one whiff. That singular whiff could be considered troublesome but it seemed the fouls he generated on the four-seam were due to the hitter’s timing being off rather than missed opportunities on bad pitches.And that lone whiff accounted for one of Keller’s five strikeouts. I mentioned the importance of keeping his four-seam elevated in an article I wrote for Pitcher List during spring training. The fourth pitch of the at-bat saw Keller deliver a slider low and inside. Keller then built off that with fastball up and away for strike three.That 95 MPH fastball had a spin rate of 2378 when he struck out Daniel Palka. The above average velocity and spin rate caused a slight ‘rising’ effect which further created deception for Keller. I say deception because I’m sure Palka was expecting a sinker (they both have similar initial movement) as evidenced by his swing that was well under the pitch. Clearly his bread and butter, Keller’s sinker yielded slightly different results. He allowed just a walk and a single, neither of which proved to be problematic. Keller is a high ground ball pitcher (and that’s thanks in part to the sinker as well) and when the slider was put in play, half of hitter’s contact was driven into the ground. Keller mainly used the slider later in counts, especially when he got ahead/had two strikes on right-handed hitters. Keller also threw it as his first pitch a few times, but mainly to left-handed hitters.Four of the five strikeouts Keller got against the White Sox were from the sliders in the super cut below.Keller’s slider was pretty good last year but its shown marked improvement so far. He’s made several adjustments with the pitch Christian Yelich Jersey , mainly the spin rate and the axis of rotation.The spin rate on his slider during his first start of 2019 saw an improvement of 122 RPMs. In 2018, he averaged 2470 RPMs on the pitch but it jumped to 2592 RPMs last Thursday. The significance of the elevated spin rate can be helped by the fact that Keller is also throwing the pitch a half a mile an hour faster (85.6 MPH vs. 86.1 MPH). Spin rate and velocity work together to create movement thanks to the way the slider ‘works’ with gravity. The degree of spin also contributes to the manner with which the pitch breaks. Having the higher velocity and spin rate allows the pitch to hang just a little bit longer than normal before it drops off the table like in the examples above.Keller also has adjusted his spin axis this year by about 16 degrees from his 2018 average (71.1 degrees). Those three improvements have allowed his slider to break and extra inch vertically and an additional half inch horizontally. That matters because with his improved pitch metrics on his fastball, he’s creating extra distance between the two pitches (roughly an extra two inch separation both horizontally and vertically). And that’s great news for Keller because it creates an even better tunneling situation for him. Despite whatever changes Keller may have made to the proclivity of his pitches, his release points remain very tight. This is going to create a tremendous amount of deception for Keller when he uses his fastball/slider in tandem. As I suggested in my aforementioned article, Keller should keep his four-seam elevated to play better off his slider. I tweeted an example of this a few days ago.And it looks as though Keller kept his four-seam up for the most part.The sinker and its arm-side ride and break should be sprinkled in to keep hitters true so they can’t just sit on his four-seam fastball. Keller couldn’t have done a better job than he did Opening Day. We have to remember that expectations have to be tempered this early in the season while also keeping in mind that (and I mean no disrespect, Chi-town) the White Sox are a pretty average team at this juncture. Keller appears to have done the right things to become a better pitcher, albeit through just one start. Can it be sustained? He’s going to have some ups and downs as the year rolls on but I think we are going to see a lot more positive than negative outcomes, especially if the third highest-scoring offense in spring training can keep scoring runs.

    The biggest surprise of the season for the Dodgers Derek Holland Jersey , and possibly all of baseball, continues to contribute in key spots. Max Muncy has referred to this as a dream season."LOS ANGELES — Max Muncy was a big part of what the Dodgers did offensively in the regular season. He led the team in home runs (35), walks (79) and OPS (.973), all while only having 481 plate appearances.Going back to Sunday in San Francisco, Muncy has hit a home run in three straight games. A two-run splash into McCovey Cove Sunday, a big two-run blast in Monday’s division-clinching win over Colorado, followed by a three-run shot in just his second career plate appearance in the playoffs.After a brief slump that looked like it could derail his dream season back at the end of July, he turned it back on and has carried it into the postseason.Starting with an 0-for-7 in a 16-inning loss to Philadelphia back on July 24, the 28-year-old went into a slide that saw him hit .171/.241/.447 over 26 games, lasting well into August.“I don’t remember much about that game,” said Muncy. “Honestly, it’s just baseball. There’s not one person in this league, in the minor leagues, in college, that hasn’t gone through a stretch like that. That’s just the nature of the game, and you just gotta figure out how to get through it.”“Each day you start off 0 for 0.”Even if Muncy wasn’t a guy with a track record of success at the big league level, the Dodgers and manager Dave Roberts weren’t worried about the rough patch.“Every hitter is going to go through a time when they’re not seeing the baseball well, and Max, it was probably about two weeks,” Roberts said. “But after that -- you know, before that http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , after that, he’s been very good in the strike zone. He’s had a tremendous season.”NLDS Game 2 lineupsPosBravesPosDodgersPosBravesPosDodgersTime: 6:37 p.m. PT | TV: FS1“But his DNA to be able to stay in the strike zone is pretty special, pretty unique, and so yeah, to see him in this moment, not surprised.”That ability was on full display Thursday when Muncy walked three times, becoming one of two players in baseball history (Eddie Murray) to hit a homer, walk three times and steal a base in the same postseason game.“I think it’s a combination,” Roberts responded when asked about how much of Muncy’s success is gift versus preparation. “But I think most of it probably is just his innate ability to recognize a strike versus ball, and the value of not making an out. And it’s not -- we talk about not making outs, not trying to walk.”“But just understanding the value of not making an out. I think that he understands that, and his ability to see the ball out of the hand is pretty special.”The Long BallThe Dodgers have hit a considerable amount of balls over the fence this season. Only the Yankees (267) hit more than the 235 the Dodgers did. Only seven teams have ever hit that many in the National League.After hitting three more last night, Muncy and Joc Pederson were asked about the notion that you can’t rely too heavily on home runs in the playoffs.“I never heard of that notion,” said Pederson. “(In) the postseason you’re facing some of the best pitchers, and good pitchers usually don’t give up home runs. So you gotta grind out at-bats and I think we do a great job of that and hit with runners on base, get the guy over, situational hitting all plays a part of it. But I mean, sometimes a home run does the job. So I don’t know what to tell you.”Muncy believed the homers were part of the team’s overall sound philosophy of hitting.“To me, I don’t really feel like there’s anyone on this team that’s going up there trying to hit a home run,” Muncy replied. “It’s just a result of us having a good approach and good at-bats. I feel like a lot of the home runs we’ve had have come off of long at-bats, working the counts and wearing the pitcher down.”“Again http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , I don’t feel like we’re trying to hit a home run. It’s just the result of a good approach.”Homers are fun, postseason or not. The Dodgers will have the same eight position players in the lineup as they did Thursday. They’ll be looking for more good at-bats against Atlanta starter Anibal Sanchez. ... along with some information about price points."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Chicago Cubs recapsChicago Cubs minor leaguesChicago Cubs essaysChicago Cubs game threadsWrigley Field renovationsFull archiveLibrary Bleed Cubbie Blue Community GuidelinesCurrent time in ChicagoBCB Specials & Site InfoWinter 2019 music threadsCubs StoriesScheduleRosterStatsYahoo Cubs newsYahoo Cubs team pageYahoo Cubs reportYahoo Cubs depth chartYahoo Cubs transactionsYahoo Cubs photosOdds Shop About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub 鉁旵hicago Cubs newsChicago Cubs spring trainingA look at Cubs spring training season ticketsNew,13comments... along with some information about price points.CSTShareTweetShareShareA look at Cubs spring training season ticketsWillson Contreras on a Cubs spring season ticketSCOTTSDALE, Arizona — The Cubs have gone all-mobile for season tickets at Wrigley Field this year. If you want them printed, you can have that done (for a price!), but you simply get the same ticket someone would get at the box office, not on special season ticket stock.This isn’t the case for spring training tickets, fortunately, for those of us who like attractive season tickets on heavier, glossy stock. The team is still issuing nicely-printed tickets for Sloan Park season ticket holders.Here’s the full ticket from which I took the image at the top of this post:The 18 tickets feature, in order: Javier Baez, Kris Bryant, Willson Contreras, Jon Lester, Jason Heyward, Kyle Schwarber, Jose Quintana, Ian Happ, Yu Darvish, Anthony Rizzo, Kyle Hendricks Willie McCovey Jersey , Albert Almora Jr., Cole Hamels, Ben Zobrist, Pedro Strop, and then different photos of Baez, Bryant and Contreras for the last three. The ticket photos are similar to these images which are on the outside walls at Sloan Park:Al YellonAl YellonAs you can see above, the season-ticket price for my lawn ticket for the final spring game, March 26 vs. the Red Sox, is $25. The other game vs. Boston, March 25, is also priced at $25. Currently, if you want a lawn ticket for either of those games from the box office or online, it’s $47 (plus fees).Lawn prices for the other 16 Sloan Park games this spring are as follows.$10: 2/25 vs. Padres, 2/28 vs. Athletics$14: 2/23 vs. Brewers, 2/26 vs. Diamondbacks, 3/3 vs. White Sox, 3/6 vs. Royals, 3/12 vs. Reds$20: 3/2 vs. Brewers, 3/7 vs. Rockies, 3/14 vs. Rangers, 3/17 vs. Rockies Mel Ott Jersey , 3/19 vs. Mariners, 3/20 vs. Dodgers$25: 3/9 vs. Angels, 3/21 vs. Giants, 3/22 vs. RangersI find it a bit odd that a Saturday (3/2) game vs. the Brewers is priced higher than a Sunday (3/3) game vs. the White Sox (and the single-game pricing at the link below shows the Sox game likely has higher demand), and that a game against the Angels is in the highest price tier even though it’s on a weekend. There’s certainly no guarantee that Mike Trout or Shohei Ohtani will play in that game. The $25 price for Friday, March 22 against the Rangers is obviously anticipating that date as a lead-in to spring break week. Lastly, two games against the Rockies priced at $20 are apparently trying to push that as a “rivalry” given last year’s wild-card game. Usually, the Rox wouldn’t be that much of a draw.Tickets at various price levels are still available for all spring games, though some have only lawn tickets remaining. The very early start to this schedule could keep crowds down in the first week of games, especially given this unusually cold weather outlook for the western United States:As of now, it looks like the weather for the first game a week from today will be partly cloudy, but with temperatures only in the mid-50s. Which would be perfectly fine for Opening Day at Wrigley, but is about 15 degrees below average for Mesa this time of year.Still, it’ll be baseball, actual games, and beginning in just seven days.

    SEATTLE (AP) Jerry Dipoto thought he was done making deals a day before the non-waiver trade deadline after remodeling the Seattle Mariners bullpen.The Mariners’ ever-active baseball boss just couldn’t help himself when an outfield upgrade became available.Seattle acquired outfielder Cameron Maybin from the Miami Marlins on Tuesday Kenta Maeda Jersey , giving the Mariners a boost going into the final two months of the regular season. Seattle landed Maybin in exchange for minor league infielder Bryson Brigman and international bonus pool allotment.Dipoto said he first had discussions with the Marlins about Maybin about two weeks ago, but it took the non-waiver trade deadline to get a deal finalized.”He fits into the theme of what we’re doing and adds better balance to our club. And the experience of a guy who has been through it as long as Cam has doesn’t hurt,” Dipoto said.Center field was the one obvious position where Seattle could use an upgrade. Since moving Dee Gordon to second base, Guillermo Heredia has seen the majority of the time in center. And while Heredia is outstanding defensively, his bat hasn’t provided much to Seattle’s lineup. Heredia is hitting .229 with a .314 on-base percentage and 22 runs scored. Heredia was batting .302 on May 29, but his average has taken a nosedive. In the past 51 games played, Heredia is hitting just .184.Maybin has been the opposite offensively. Maybin is batting .251 with three homers and 20 RBIs in 99 games this season, but he’s batting .329 with a .912 OPS since June 29. The Mariners are the seventh team for the 12-year veteran, who has a $3.25 million, one-year contract. Maybin also has postseason experience, playing in the World Series last year with Houston. Seattle entered the day two games ahead of Oakland for the second wild-card in the American League and three games behind the Astros in the AL West.Seattle is hopeful Maybin will be able to join the club Wednesday, and he was the last of Seattle’s four trades in the days leading up to the deadline. Seattle also acquired relief pitchers Sam Tuivailala Matt Kemp Jersey , Adam Warren and Zach Duke in a trio of deals.”I think we’ve helped the team a lot,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said. ”Every manager out there wants more pieces in the bullpen, certainly. As you get going into games in August and September and workloads start to mount up on pitchers you tend to go to the bullpen a little earlier and you want guys who have experience or have stuff or a combination. I think we’ve done some nice things.”The acquisition of Maybin will likely put to rest any thought of moving Gordon back to center late in the season following the return of Robinson Cano from his 80-game suspension for violating baseball’s joint drug agreement. Dipoto said the intent was to leave Gordon at second base, but that he may see occasional time in the outfield. Getting Maybin means Cano will be moving around to positions other than second base once he returns.Brigman is batting .304 this year for Class A Modesto. He was a third-round pick in 2016 but hasn’t played above Class A.— MIAMI (AP) — The New York Mets poured it on.Pete Alonso, their 230-pound rookie slugger, squeezed into a clubhouse cart as ordered by teammates for a postgame dousing that included every available substance.“A couple of eggs,” Alonso said. “Barbecue sauce. Mayonnaise. Beer. Shaving cream. Maybe ketchup and mustard. Maybe relish.”He didn’t mind because the shower was celebratory — a reward for his first major league homer. Alonso’s three-run shot capped a four-run ninth inning, and the Mets overcame 16 strikeouts by their hitters to rally past the Miami Marlins 7-3 Monday night.Manager Mickey Callaway smiled watching Alonzo get the treatment for his first homer.“We knew that was going to come at some point,” Callaway said. “It’s still a special occasion for a young player.”While the Mets were giddy about a 3-1 start, Marlins manager Don Mattingly stewed about several calls. He was especially upset that plate umpire Sam Holbrook ruled Juan Lagares was hit by a two-strike pitch trying to bunt, which sparked the Mets’ ninth-inning rally.Holbrook said Lagares didn’t offer at the pitch, and the ruling was upheld by a replay review.“That was a shaky call http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-max-muncy-jersey ,” Mattingly said. “Sam said he was trying to get out of the way. But he never pulled the bat back in any way, shape or form.”Said Callaway: “I saw a guy trying to get out of the way of a fastball that was going to hit him in the face.”Mattingly also complained that Holbrook missed two pitches by the Marlins that should have been strike three, calls that led to a Mets run.“I’m not supposed to complain about calls, but the league needs to look at it,” Mattingly said. “I don’t understand a lot of it tonight. I understand the Marlins are not supposed to be good this year; I guess it’s OK to pile on.“It’s got to be better than that.”With the score 3-all, Mets pinch-hitter Dominic Smith singled to start the ninth. Drew Steckenrider (0-1) then came inside on Lagares as he squared to bunt, hitting him on the right hand.Amed Rosario’s single put the Mets ahead, and on the next pitch, Alonso homered to center field.Alonso led the minors last year with 36 homers and 119 RBIs. This year he’s batting .412 with six RBIs in four games, and Callaway has enjoyed watching outfielders react to his line drives.“They all kind of just stand there like, ‘What’s it going to do?'” Callaway said. “The next thing you know, it’s over everybody’s head. It’s really incredible. There’s just true raw power there.”Alonso said the postgame shower caught him by surprise.“I didn’t know that was a thing until they told me to hop in the shopping cart and just poured whatever they could on me http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-cozart-jersey ,” he said with a grin. “My eyes were stinging like really bad. I kept my mouth closed the entire time.”Was it worth it?“One hundred percent,” he said.Lagares hit his first homer since Sept. 7, 2017.

    Rob Carr/Getty ImagesHawaii completed its perfect summer with a 3-0 victory over South Korea to win the 2018 Little League World Series.Honolulu Little League entered the day with an 8-0 record while cruising through the West regional and United States championship. Sunday's victory in Williamsport Corey Kluber Jersey , Pennsylvania, over international champion South Seoul Little League helped the team secure the ultimate prize.The squad became just the second U.S. team to win the LLWS in the last seven years, but its the third Hawaii representative to win it all since 2005.Hawaii had been shutting teams down throughout this tournament, allowing runs in just one of four games in Williamsport.

However, the squad from Honolulu ended the tournament on a high note while completing an unforgettable experience.Note: All statistics courtesy ofGameChanger. ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — For the first time since 2000, a new manager will be in the home clubhouse at Tempe Diablo Stadium when the Los Angeles Angels report to spring training.Mike Scioscia spent 19 years in charge of the Halos, and Brad Ausmus is aware of the enormity of the shoes he is about to fill.The former Detroit manager already got a jump on his new job as a special assistant to general manager Billy Eppler Michael Brantley Jersey , watching up close while the Angels completed their third straight losing season. He already has ideas about how to change it when the Angels get back to work.“I was with the Angels all last year,” Ausmus said. “I know the entire front office. I know the players. The players know who I am. So I think that’s going to make it a little bit easier.”Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, Justin Upton, Andrelton Simmons and Shohei Ohtani are all familiar with Ausmus, and they’re not alone. The Angels didn’t change the major components of last year’s 80-win team, instead banking on improved health and new leadership to propel them closer to their first playoff victory in Trout’s career.One thing fans won’t see much in spring is Ohtani, who is recovering after undergoing Tommy John surgery Oct. 1.Ohtani has been cleared for weight training http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , and he will be cleared to swing a bat shortly. He probably won’t hit in spring training games, and he won’t pitch at all this year.But Ohtani will be with his teammates throughout spring, and the AL Rookie of the Year’s mere presence will be enough to attract some fans hoping for a pregame autograph.Here are some more things to watch as the Ausmus Era begins in Tempe:NEW LOOK: Although Eppler never mentions it, Pujols’ mammoth contract looms over every decision made by the Angels, who didn’t spend on the biggest names in free agency. They added veteran starters Matt Harvey and Trevor Cahill and picked up Cleveland career saves leader Cody Allen for the bullpen, but well-traveled catcher Jonathan Lucroy was the biggest position-player addition. They’ll have proven big-league pitchers at every spot in the rotation, but no stars like Dallas Keuchel, who would seem a natural fit at the Big A.ROOKIES TO WATCH: For the first time in years Kenny Lofton Jersey , the Angels might have a couple of these — and it could make a big difference. Former GM Jerry Dipoto decimated the Angels’ farm system before he left in July 2015, and Eppler’s seeds are finally starting to blossom. Right-hander Griffin Canning seems likely to crack the roster this season, and promising position players Luis Rengifo and Jo Adell could be ready soon afterward.THEY’RE SET: The Angels look good up the middle, with Trout in center field backing a double-play combination of brilliant shortstop Simmons and youngster David Fletcher or veteran Zack Cozart at second. Lucroy is a quality veteran behind the plate, although many quality veteran hitters have suddenly forgotten how to hit upon joining the Angels.THEY’RE NOT: Pujols makes far too much money not to play, but Ohtani is a superior designated hitter. That means Pujols must keep himself in shape enough to play consistently at first base, where he is still a solid fielder. The Angels’ bullpen is an unpredictable mix of newcomers and inconsistent holdovers, but Eppler has a solid track record here.ON DECK: Along with Adell and Rengifo getting a taste of big-league camp http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , the Angels are welcoming back Peter Bourjos, the speedy outfielder drafted by LA in 2005. He spent four seasons with the Angels before making stops with six other organizations, but he is back with a minor-league deal and an invite to spring. If he rediscovers his swing, a roster spot could be available when the Angels open the regular season March 28 in Oakland.

    OAKLAND Bob Feller Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Ramon Laureano reached his hands out to each side and knew he had his first major league hit at last, a big one at that to end the game.Laureano somehow forced himself to relax with the game on the line and two outs in the 13th inning, having already failed at the plate four times in his big league debut.He came through this time as he singled home the winning run for his first major league hit, sending the Oakland Athletics past the Detroit Tigers 1-0 on Friday night.“I’m shocked, I’m speechless,” he said. “It’s awesome. I could have never imagined it this way.”After going hitless with two strikeouts before his milestone single, Laureano finally ended the game that went 3 hours, 32 minutes with a clean hit to right against Buck Farmer (3-4). Laureano clapped his hands and rounded the bases to be greeted with some star treatment.Soon after, he took a celebratory pie in the face and a Gatorade shower from his teammates. Once inside, they got him with beer and tomato juice, “everything that you can imagine.”The souvenir baseball and his bat will go home with his parents for safekeeping.Jose Iglesias hit a two-out single in the top of the 13th against winner Emilio Pagan (3-0) and stole second. When catcher Jonathan Lucroy’s throw went into center, Iglesias tried for third and was got thrown out — a play that was upheld on replay review when the Tigers challenged.Yusmeiro Petit pitched perfect 11th and 12th innings for the A’s http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , who remained in the lead for the second AL wild card.Matt Olson doubled to start the 10th against Victor Alcantara but pinch-runner Franklin Barreto was thrown out at third.Right fielder Stephen Piscotty made a beautiful run-saving catch to end the 10th on a liner by Iglesias.Matt Chapman and Jed Lowrie hit back-to-back singles with one out in the ninth against Alex Wilson .Blake Treinen struck out four over two innings on a night both starters shined but had nothing to show for it.Tigers left-hander Blaine Hardy gave up Lowrie’s infield single to begin the seventh inning for the A’s first hit, ending a no-hit bid. Hardy had issued only a pair of walks to Olson — the first on a 13-pitch plate appearance in the second. Before the walk, Olson’s drive to right went to a crew chief review and was confirmed as sailing just right of the pole.“As soon as that ball was hit by Lowrie kind of in the hole, I knew he’s got some speed, he’s going to be safe,” Hardy said.Hardy struck out six over seven scoreless innings, done after a career-high 106 pitches in a 0-0 game.A’s lefty counterpart Brett Anderson retired his first 16 batters in order before Iglesias doubled with one out in the sixth.Until the winning run, only Iglesias had gone as far as third base.Oakland won its fourth straight after sweeping Toronto on the heels of losing all three last weekend at Colorado.The A’s are 5-0 against the Tigers this season after sweeping a set in Detroit from June 25-28.Hardy was trying to win consecutive starts for the first time since May 27 and June 1, and he pitched well enough to win if the Tigers had scored for him.Anderson allowed two hits, struck out and walked one in his fifth start since coming off the disabled list July 8 from a strained right shoulder.Laureano played center field and batted eighth after his callup earlier in the day.He ran into the wall in center to make a nice catch on No. 2 hitter Nicholas Castellanos‘ deep fly in the first. Laureano ran forward the next time he made a play, going down to his right knee to catch Jeimer Candelario’s liner to end the second.While he got a feel for how the Coliseum outfield plays, the hit meant so much.“You couldn’t ask for a much better first hit Joe Carter Jersey ,” Anderson said. “I’m sure he’ll remember that forever.”TRAINER’S ROOMTigers: RHP Mike Fiers, whose name came up in trade chatter around the A’s at this week’s deadline, should make his next turn in the rotation with an extra day after leaving Wednesday’s game with a bruised left shin after taking a line drive against the Reds. … LHP Daniel Norris, recovering from a left groin injury that has sidelined him since April 29, is still experiencing soreness and his status for the rest of the season is in doubt. “He’s got to be pain-free,” manager Ron Gardenhire said. … RHP Michael Fulmer (left oblique strain) is in Lakeland, Florida, rehabbing. “We’ve told him to be calm in a lot of different ways,” Gardenhire said. “You can’t push this thing.”Athletics: If Chad Pinder got through his Friday batting practice with no issues as he recovers from a laceration on his left elbow, the A’s plan to activate him from the disabled list ahead of the interleague opener at home against the Dodgers on Tuesday.UP NEXTTigers: RHP Jordan Zimmerman (4-3, 4.44 ERA) tries to end a three-start skid after going just three innings his last time out. He is 1-0 with a 2.60 ERA and eight strikeouts in his initial three career starts vs. the A’s.Athletics: Coming off career win No. 100, RHP Edwin Jackson (2-2 http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , 3.32) pitches the middle game of the series after making his A’s debut at Detroit on June 25. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Joe Kelly helped the Boston Red Sox win a World Series title. His next goal is to try to win one for the team he grew up rooting for and defeated this October.The Dodgers on Friday officially announced signing Kelly to a three-year deal worth $25 million that brings the 30-year old right-hander back to Southern California. Kelly was born in Anaheim and grew up in Corona, where most of his family still resides.“It is one of those things where I am at a point in my career where I have tons of family that is local. I also wanted to be on a team that wins year in and year out,” Kelly said during a conference call.Kelly leaves Boston, who acquired him from St. Louis in July 2014. He is expected to be a setup man for closer Kenley Jansen, who is still recovering from an offseason heart procedure.Kelly gets a $1 million signing bonus and salaries of $3 million next year and $8.5 million in each of the following two seasons. The Dodgers have a $12 million team option for 2022 with a $4 million buyout.He could earn $2 million annually in performance bonuses for games finished: $250,000 each for 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 and 55, and $500,000 for 60.Upgrading setup and middle relief was one of the Dodgers’ priorities during the offseason.“The reliever market has been interesting to see. For teams that are championship-caliber Corey Kluber Jersey , that’s a big role and it doesn’t get magnified until the playoffs,” Kelly said. “Without a good bullpen it is very hard to win a World Series.”Kelly made the fourth-most appearances in the American League last season (73) and was 4-2 with a 4.39 ERA and two saves. His numbers improved greatly during the postseason as he allowed just one earned run in 11 1/3 innings with 13 strikeouts and no walks.In the World Series, Kelly appeared in all five games and did not allow a run, striking out 10 in six innings.According to Brooks Baseball, Kelly’s fastball averaged 98.7 mph this season, but he also used his changeup more and developed a slurve after deciding to shelve his slider and curveball. Kelly said mechanically he changed some stuff with his arm slot in order to deliver the ball quicker.Besides the World Series, Kelly has been a bit of a nemesis for the Dodgers. He broke Hanley Ramirez’s rib when he hit him with a pitch in the 2013 NL Championship Series opener. Kelly said the pitch got away from him and that both of them talked it out when Ramirez joined the Red Sox in 2015.Kelly hit the New York Yankees’ Tyler Austin on the back with a pitch April 11, four innings after Austin spiked Red Sox shortstop Brock Holt when he slid into second base with a high right foot. That set off a brawl and Kelly was suspended for six games.Andrew Friedman, the Dodgers’ president of baseball operations, said he likes Kelly’s ability to provide more than one inning out of the bullpen and that he could be used in a variety of situations.

    The New York Yankees came home Monday night with the American League Division Series tied against the Boston Red Sox http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-khris-davis-jersey , but they did not perform well in their first game of the series at Yankee Stadium.The home team simply could not compete in Game 3, as the Red Sox roared to a record-setting 16-1 victory over their archrivals. The Red Sox took a 2-1 advantage in the series and can close out the Yankees Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium.Brock Holt, who did not play in either of the first two games of the series, started at second base and hit for the cycle. He became the first player in major league history to hit for the cycle in the postseason."Wow, that's the first one ever," the 30-year-old said on the TBS broadcast when he was informed of his history-making achievement. "We had a lot of fun tonight and put a lot of good at bats together."While Holt earned a spot in baseball annals with his performance Dave Henderson Jersey , Red Sox starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi had a magnificent game as he allowed just one run in seven innings. He threw 97 pitches in his time on the mound and 72 of them were strikes.Luis Severino had a brutal game for the Yankees, lasting just three-plus inning and giving up six earned runs before manager Aaron Boone pulled him from the game after three batters in the fourth inning.That inning proved decisive in the game, as the Red Sox stretched their lead from 3-0 to 10-0. Andrew Benintendi had the big hit when he drove in three runs with a bases-loaded double. That shot took the air out of Yankee Stadium.The crowd in the Bronx was roaring for the home team as the game started and in the early innings, but when the Red Sox took the lead and stretched it out, the noise lessened considerably as their team's chances for taking a 2-1 lead in the series disappeared.CC Sabathia is charged with keeping the Yankees alive in Game 4.Chris OMeara/Associated PressRick Porcello will take the mound for the Red Sox and the Yankees will send veteran CC Sabathia to the hill. The first pitch is scheduled for 8:07 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised by TBS.The Yankees are minus-120 favorites to win and force a decisive fifth game in Boston Thursday Dennis Eckersley Jersey ,according to OddsShark. The Red Sox are even money to win. Those betting on the Yankees have to risk $120 to win $100, while Red Sox backers risk $100 to win $100.Porcello had a 17-7 record this year, and the former Cy Young Award winner had a 4.28 earned-run average with a 1.18 WHIP. He struck out 190 batters in 191.1 innings.Sabathia was 9-7 with a 3.65 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. He struck out 140 batters in 153.0 innings and gave up 19 home runs.Boone was low key after the game, and that's to be expected after his team suffered a 15-run defeat. "We have to flush this game right away," he said in the postgame press conference broadcast by the MLB Network. "We have no other choice." PredictionIt looks like the Red Sox have all the momentum after their huge win Monday night.However, it appeared the Yankees had all the momentum going into Game 3 after their win Saturday night at Fenway Park. They had displayed their power bats Santiago Casilla Jersey , and the Red Sox looked perplexed.That all changed as Eovaldi was on his game for the Red Sox, while Severino struggled badly for the Yankees.Sabathia is not likely to be intimidated by Boston's offensive show in Game 3. He will try to give New York four or five good innings and hope the Yankees can stay close.The Red Sox won 108 regular-season games and two more in the playoffs. If Porcello can give them the win and the series victory, they will be able to open the ALCS at home against the Houston Astros and ace Chris Sale will be on the mound.Look for the Red Sox to end the Yankees' season by winning the ALDS in four games. A look at what’s happening around baseball Sunday:MAX MATCHUPNationals ace Max Scherzer (15-5, 2.28 ERA) will try to become the first 16-game winner in the majors when he starts the Sunday night game at Wrigley Field. Owner of three Cy Young Awards, he also leads the majors in strikeouts this year with 216 in 161 2/3 innings. Cole Hamels starts for the Cubs — he’s allowed just one earned run in 11 innings during the first two starts since being acquired from Texas.SALE SETRed Sox ace Chris Sale returns from a two-week stint on the disabled list because of shoulder inflammation. Manager Alex Cora said the lefty could throw 100 pitches if he’s not too rusty. Sale (11-4) leads the AL with a 2.04 ERA and will try to pitch Boston to a four-game sweep of the Orioles at Camden Yards.WELCOME BACKMets third baseman David Wright is set to play in a minor league game, more than two years since the oft-injured team captain last appeared in the majors. The 35-year-old Wright has been beset by back Mark McGwire Jersey , neck and shoulder trouble. He’s scheduled to start a rehab assignment by playing five innings in the field for Class A St. Lucie. His last game in the bigs was May 27, 2016 — he had brief stint in the minors last August before being shut down.WAITINGThe Rockies will see how third baseman Nolan Arenado is feeling, a day after he was out of the starting lineup at Coors Field against the Dodgers. The All-Star third baseman left Friday night’s game with a strained right shoulder. Arenado is hitting .307 with 29 home runs and 82 RBIs, and Colorado is hoping he can avoid a trip to the disabled list.MISS HIMThe AL Central-leading Indians have put slugger Edwin Encarnacion on the disabled list because of swelling in his left biceps. The cleanup man has struggled since being hit on the right hand by Yankees reliever Chad Green before the All-Star break.SWEET SWINGBlue Jays prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has hit four home runs in the last four games for Triple-A Buffalo. The 19-year-old son of a Hall of Famer is batting a combined .406 with 18 home runs at four levels of the minor leagues. The Bisons host the Toledo Mud Hens to wrap up the weekend.

    If the Washington Nationals are going to re-sign outfielder Bryce Harper http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-julio-urias-jersey , it reportedly won't be for a deal comparable to the one Manny Machado received from the San Diego Padres.According to MLB.com's Todd Zolecki, Mark Feinsand and Jamal Collier, the Nats have "no plans" to match the 10-year, $300 million contract San Diego handed to Machado this week.That is despite the fact Washington offered Harper $300 million over 10 years near the end of the 2018 season, which Harper rejected.MLB.com noted that Washington's offer during the 2018 season included $100 million in deferred money, meaning it isn't as valuable as the $300 million in guaranteed money that Machado landed.Given the Nationals' reported unwillingness to throw caution to the wind financially when it comes to Harper, the field appears to be narrowing. MLB.com tabbed the Philadelphia Phillies as the favorites to sign him since the Chicago White Sox were unwilling to go up to $300 million guaranteed on Machado and the San Francisco Giants reportedly prefer a shorter-term deal.Harper's agent, Scott Boras, reportedly has designs on surpassing the $325 million deal Giancarlo Stanton signed with the Miami Marlins in 2014, and the Phillies may be the only team willing to reach that threshold.The 26-year-old Harper has spent his entire MLB career with the Nats and developed into one of the best players in baseball during that time. He is a six-time All-Star in seven seasons with a Rookie of the Year award Cody Bellinger Jersey , a Silver Slugger and a National League MVP award to his credit.Over 927 career games, Harper owns a .279 batting average with 184 home runs and 521 RBI. Although Harper struggled at times last season and slashed just .249/.393//496, he still managed to club 34 homers and drive in a career-high 100 runs.The Nationals disappointed and missed the playoffs last season even with Harper, and they will have a major hole in their outfield if they don't re-sign him. Big things are expected out of 20-year-old Juan Soto in 2019, though, and the pitching staff should be far better as well after the signing of Patrick Corbin.As for Philadelphia, it has already signed veteran outfielder Andrew McCutchen and closer David Robertson, and traded for shortstop Jean Segura and catcher J.T. Realmuto. The Phillies are arguably the NL East favorite with those moves, but they could become a legitimate World Series contender by signing Harper.Harper has the potential to shift the balance of power in the National League, and his signing is the last major domino that has yet to fall in free agency. BOSTON (AP) — Three days after a World Series victory that transformed him from a postseason flop to an October hero Chris Taylor Jersey , Red Sox left-hander David Price said at the team’s victory parade Wednesday that he would stay in Boston rather than opt out of his contract and become a free agent.“I’m not going anywhere,” Price said on the field at Fenway Park before boarding a duck boat for the ride through the city. “I came here to win, and we did that this year. That was very special and I want to do it again.”Price will earn $127 million over the next four years, the remainder of a seven-year, $217 million contract he signed before the 2016 season that gave him the right to opt out after the third year. It remains the richest contract ever for a pitcher.“There wasn’t any reconsideration on my part, ever,” Price said.The 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner, Price has gone 31-19 with a 3.74 ERA in three seasons in Boston but until this year never had any success in the playoffs. He had never won a postseason start in his career — a 0-9 record in his first 10 tries — and was booed off the field after recording just five outs in the Division Series against the New York Yankees.But he was the winning pitcher in the AL Championship Series clincher against Houston, and then he won his first career World Series start, Game 2 against Los Angeles. He pitched in relief in Boston’s 18-inning Game 3 loss http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-max-muncy-jersey , then started on three day’s rest and delivered seven innings of three-hit ball in the finale to help eliminate the Dodgers.“We were hoping he would stay,” Red Sox president Sam Kennedy said. “He’s ready to go back-to-back.”In all, Price was 3-1 with a 3.46 ERA this postseason and 2-0 with a 1.98 ERA in two starts and one relief appearance against the Dodgers. The Boston Herald reported that Price lost a 3-2 vote to first baseman Steve Pearce for the World Series MVP.“In my mind, he was the co-MVP of the World Series,” Red Sox owner John Henry said Wednesday. “He was ready to pitch every day, no matter the situation. The bigger the game, the bigger the performance.”Henry called it “great news” that Price had opted in. Reminded that the ballclub itself, like Price, has had a bit of a turnaround after a long history of postseason failure, Henry said: “Boston is a great place to get the monkey off your back.”This is the fourth title in 15 years for the Red Sox http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-ross-stripling-jersey , who went the previous 86 years without winning it all, and the 11th championship for the city since the New England Patriots won their first of five Super Bowls in February 2002. The Bruins and Celtics have also won one title apiece this century, celebrating with the increasingly routine parade of amphibious vehicles known as duck boats.Price, who shared a neon yellow ride with pitcher Nathan Eovaldi, was cheered through the city on a sunny day with temperatures in the mid-40s. In addition to the usual cheering and waving banners, the fans threw beers and small bottles of liquor to the players.

    The Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2019 has been announced Womens Frank Clark Jersey , and while one much more important ex-Seattle Seahawks offensive lineman did not get the nod for induction, another one from the 1990s team did.Former center Kevin Mawae has received the call to go to Canton. He was with the Seahawks from 1994-1997, having been selected by Seattle in the second-round of the 1994 NFL Draft. Mawae was on the PFWA All-Rookie Team, but the bulk of his success came with the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans, racking up eight Pro Bowl selections, seven first-team All-Pro honors, and he’s on the 2000s NFL All-Decade Team. Mawae retired after the 2009 season.Mawae was the only offensive lineman to get into the Pro Football HOF, meaning former Seahawks left guard Steve Hutchinson, ex-Pittsburgh Steelers star guard Alan Faneca,and ex-Jacksonville Jaguars tackle Tony Boselli will have to wait another year.The full class is as follows:Ed Reed, safety (Baltimore Ravens Womens Nick Vannett Jersey , Houston Texans, and New York Jets)Champ Bailey, cornerback (Washington and Denver Broncos)Kevin Mawae, center (Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets, Tennessee Titans)Ty Law, cornerback (New England Patriots, New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, and Denver Broncos)Tony Gonzalez, tight end (Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons)Johnny Robinson http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/tyler-lockett-jersey , flanker and defensive back (Dallas Texans/Kansas City Chiefs)Pat Bowlen, majority owner (Denver Broncos)Gil Brandt, executive (Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, and Dallas Cowboys)The 2019 Hall of Fame Game will occur on August 1st, with all eight men getting enshrined on August 3rd. The Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams squared off Sunday in a Week 10 match up in which the Rams prevailed 36-31 against a feisty, up and coming Hawks team that did what it could to pull the upset. The upset efforts came up just short, and the Rams now hold a commanding 4.5 game lead in the NFC West with just seven weeks of play left in the season. However, the game was important from one perspective, as Sunday marked the first time in 2018 in which third year tackle Germain Ifedi was flagged for multiple penalties. Ifedi, as fans of course recall Womens Russell Wilson Jersey , led the league with 20 flags thrown his way in 2017, and had drawn just five penalty flags through the first half of 2018. His two penalties Sunday against the Rams pushed his season total to seven flags drawn, with six of those penalties accepted.For those who remember, back in January I looked at all of Ifedi’s 2017 holding penalties, and found that on the majority of them the hold was in part caused by quarterback Russell Wilson scrambling out of the pocket to the right. We don’t have the all-22 of the call from the Week 10 game against the Rams, but from the broadcast footage, we know that it was called as Wilson scrambled out of the pocket to the right. Yes, it was a ticky tack call, but Ifedi did grab enough of a handful of jersey to make the flag defensible for the refs.However, in looking at his holding penalty in Week 9 against the Los Angeles Chargers, well Authentic J.R. Sweezy Jersey , that’s a different story. On this play Ifedi simply got beaten around the edge by Melvin Ingram, and, as we see in the picture, you can’t try and grab a defensive player by the waistband to prevent your quarterback from getting smashed. In any case, the hold on the play against the Chargers did not count due to an offsetting defensive penalty on the play. So, in summary, Ifedi’s Week 9 holding penalty did not follow his 2017 pattern, while the Week 10 holding call did. Ifedi has obviously continued to improve through 2018, and it is likely only a matter of time before the Seattle front office begins extension talks with his camp. (Author’s note: under the CBA the two sides are prevented from discussing an extension until the new league year begins in March).

    In the comments the last few days I’ve noticed quite a few fans attempting to discern the origins of the shortcomings of the offense the Seattle Seahawks have displayed at times this season. Specifically fans have attempted to look back at offseason comments about how much the offense actually changed from 2017 under Darrell Bevell to 2018 under Brian Schottenheimer. Specifically Cheap Michael Dickson Jersey , what has been bandied about is the idea from earlier this year that the Hawks under Brian Schottenheimer would keep roughly 70% of the offense from the 2017 season heading into 2018, and fans are trying to understand why the offense looks so much different this season compared to last. In particular, it seems fans want to understand how much of the team’s struggles this season have been the result of switching from an offense based on West Coast principles to an offense based on Air Coryell principles. My quick response to attempting to discern this is as follows: don’t. My long response to attempting to discern this is as follows: don’t waste your time. That may seem harsh, but it’s the case because the breakdown of the playbook is largely irrelevant. The Hawks could have a playbook that is 70% based on West Coast concepts, but call plays drawn out of Air Coryell concepts on 100% of plays. Likewise, an offense can be 70% based on Air Coryell concepts, but the playcalls could be comprised of 100% West Coast concepts. In short, the actual breakdown of the playbook is irrelevant, as the only thing that is important is the actual deployment of the offense and the patterns and tendencies that the playcaller creates. Further complicating the matter of attempting to understand the origins of the playbook is the simple fact that the history of the Air Coryell and West Coast offenses are heavily intertwined and both use a foundational principle of stressing the defense by putting five receivers in the pattern. That is seen when the offenses are broken down to their simplest fundamental element. Specifically, Air Coryell is built around putting five receivers in the pattern and stressing the defense in order to create favorable matchups for the offense, whilethe West Coast offense is built around putting five receivers into the pattern and stressing the defense in order to create favorable matchups for the offense, while also using dynamic routes to adjust to actions of the defense mid-play. In short, the two offenses are very similar in their base concept of using five receivers to stress the defense. To represent the similarites of the offenses in a manner that is easy to understand for most fans, here’s a rough ballpark of a Venn Diagram of the Air Coryell and West Coast systems. The biggest difference between the two systems is the verbiage used by the system, which is nothing more than the specific language used to name a play. Basically, a lot of the plays and concepts are going to be similar, but they are going to be using different names to denote the same idea or concept. Now, I know I’m going to get a lot of pushback from certain observers about what the systems are and what they represent, but it’s important to avoid getting too caught up in anything beyond the base concepts of the system. Specifically K.J. Wright Jersey , I’m anticipating a lot of push back from commenters arguing that Air Coryell denotes a deep passing threat, while the West Coast offense is a pass-heavy timing offense. In reality, the truth of any offense lies in how the offensive play caller utilizes the offense. So, while the then San Diego, but now Los Angeles Chargers used a pass heavy air attack in the 1980s for their version of the Air Coryell attack, the Kansas City Chiefs used a similar offense to attack defenses with a run heavy attack in the late 1980s and early 1990s. On the flip side, Mike Holmgren brought his pass heavy West Coast offense to Seattle in the late 1990s and used the system to put a run-heavy offense on the back of Shaun Alexander within the same system. To explain this in the most simple manner possible, if you and I sat down and played a game of Madden we could play the game with the same teams, with the same playbooks, but call offensive games that would be completely different. The reason behind this is because the playbooks across the NFL are largely similar, with the big difference being the actual deployment of the offensive weapons by the play caller. Thus, trying to figure out the origins of the playbook is a task that will be little more than a waste of time. The important thing to remember is how the system is being deployed, because that will shed far more light onto the subject. In particular this can shed more light on the subject because of how intertwined the two offensive systems are through recent decades. Specifically, the variation of the Air Coryell system Brian Schottenheimer runs traces back to the system that Cam Cameron runs, as Cameron spent multiple seasons with the Washington Redskins under Norv Turner. Turner’s use of the system traces back to Paul Hackett, who was at USC with Turner in the late 1970s. In addition, Brian Schottenheimer spent a year working under Paul Hackett in 2000, and spent another season working with the Chiefs under Jimmy Raye in 1998. Now, all of that is important because the system the Chiefs ran for much of the 1990s under Hackett and Raye is a version of the Air Coryell with injections of West Coast offense concepts that Hackett and Joe Montana added in 1993 when they arrived in K.C. Or Cheap Doug Baldwin Jersey , if one prefers, it was a West Coast offense with Air Coryell concepts included. Then, Tom Rossley, who was the Chiefs quarterback coach in 1999 under offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye became the Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator in 2000. This is important because from 2000 until 2005 while Rossley was the offensive coordinator in Green Bay they ran a version of the West Coast that included a lot of Air Coryell concepts, and a guy named Darrell Bevell was an offensive assistant coach for the entirety of that time frame. In short, the concepts of the system the Hawks used in 2017 are very similar to the concepts used in 2018, but the difference in how the offense looks on the field is going to grow out of the individual responsible for calling plays.Whether one wants to look at the differences as two chefs making different dishes out of the same ingredients, two baristas making different qualities of coffee out of the same grinds or two financial advisors making different investment allocations with the same funds in the same markets, at the end of the day, it’s the person in charge who is responsible for the end product more so than the system itself. Yes, understanding the system allows for a better understanding of how the person in charge of the system is making use of the tools at his disposal, but just as Bill Walsh’s variant of the West Coast offense led to Roger Craig leading the NFL in receptions as a fullback in 1985, using the same system Mike Holmgren turned Shaun Alexander into the NFL’s leading rusher two decades later. In short, it’s less the system itself than how the individual in charge makes use of the system.

    For the second time this season the Seahawks are having to find an option at weakside linebacker with K.J. Wright is sidelined due to injury.Wright has missed seven of Seattle's 10 games played this season due to a knee injury that surfaced during pregame warmups of the team's preseason game in Minnesota in August. Wright had surgery shortly after and missed the first six weeks of the season as setbacks in his recovery slowed his return to the field.The knee issue again sidelined Wright during the team's loss to the Los Angeles Rams and kept him out of the Thursday night victory over the Green Bay Packers."He's still working to get back Authentic Jarran Reed Jersey ," head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday.Barkevious Mingo started in place of Wright against the Packers before being replaced after just one defensive series by Austin Calitro. Calitro also replaced rookie Shaquem Griffin in the team's opener against Denver.Mychal Kendricks was then signed and started the next three games for Seattle before the league imposed an eight-game suspension for a guilty plea in an insider-trading case. While Kendricks returned to practice Tuesday, he's ineligible to play for another two weeks while serving the final stretch of his suspension.Meanwhile, it's uncertain whether just rest and rehab will be enough to get Wright back on the field in the coming weeks."We're going to find out. We don't know," Carroll said.The Seahawks are going with Calitro this week for their matchup against the Carolina Panthers. The undrafted rookie has started three of 10 games played for Seattle this year in relief of Wright, with 22 tackles, a pass defended and a half sack of Aaron Rodgers last Thursday against the Packers."We're gaining experience as we go," Carroll said. "Austin has done a nice job when he's had his chances. He's still a young player so there's stuff to learn and all but he's done a nice job Youth Nick Vannett Jersey , particularly in the physical side of hitting and tackling and all."Calitro will likely keep the gig until either Wright or Kendricks are able to return."We just have to understand it's kind of a next man up," middle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. "Everybody kind of knows I trust everybody that's been in the position. Austin is in it right now. We have a lot of confidence in him."Kendricks is eligible to play against the Minnesota Vikings on Dec. 10."It's great for Mychal in particular;" Carroll said of having Kendricks back at practice. "He needs to get going and doing some stuff that's positive and all of that. He had a really good experience with us before. We loved him playing for us."Notes: RB J.D. McKissic was designated to return from injured reserve and returned to practice Tuesday. McKissic injured his foot in the preseason and was placed on injured reserve following roster cuts in early September. On Sunday Night Football it was the Seattle Seahawks hosting the one time division rival Kansas City Chiefs with significant playoff implications on the line. The Chiefs have already secured their playoff spot, but could have secured home field advantage through the playoffs with a win. The Seahawks, meanwhile, could secure a return to the playoffs with a victory, after having watched the 2017 playoffs from home. And, welp. However 4Justin Britt Jersey , somebody might want to let Cable Thanos know the NFL is trying to steal his line. Fans, of course, celebrated the team making the playoffs. And just in case, if because of the limited amount of time Doug Baldwin has seen the field this season, some readers have forgotten how good ADB is, he’s REALLY REALLY good. And the young little whippersnapper they call Tyler Lockett is pretty good as well. But let’s not forget about the defense, as Bobby Wagner Tyler Lockett Jersey , Frank Clark and the rest of the Seahawks defenders certainly did a fantastic job to hold Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense in check for most of the night.But apparently not everyone is happy about the Seahawks doing well. Welp, that’s too bad for whoever Morgan Vest is because the Seahawks will play a near meaningless game in Week 17 against the Arizona Cardinals before most likely heading to Jerry World to take on the Dallas Cowboys in one of the NFC Wild Card games. However, if they manage to lose that near meaningless game and the Minnesota Vikings upset the Chicago Bears in Week 17, in which case they would most likely travel to Chicago for a rematch against the Bears.
