The Detroit Tigers have one of the wider team platoon splits in baseball

The Detroit Tigers have one of the wider team platoon splits in baseball, 37 points of wOBA (.342 versus lefties, .305 versus righties), so a week like this in which they’re scheduled to face at least three left-handed starters is a big plus for them. You already know plenty about Nicholas Castellanos’ and Jeimer Candelario’s prowess against left-handed pitching, but the ones whom you might not be aware of are catcher-eligible John Hicks (available in roughly 70 percent of ESPN leagues), a .272/.345/.466 hitter against lefties since the beginning of last season, and Jose Iglesias (available in nearly 90 percent), a .286/.322/.421 hitter against lefties during the same time span.

Billy Hamilton has picked up the pace recently, with multihit performances in three of his past four games (through June 21), and he’s lined up for one of the more favorable schedules for his skill set. In addition to facing Atlanta Braves and Milwaukee Brewers catchers who grade below-average to poor at throwing out opposing base stealers, the only scheduled opponent the Cincinnati Reds will face who is better-than-average against left-handed hitters is the pitch-to-contact Chase Anderson. Six of the seven starters the Reds face, in addition, are right-handed. Hamilton, available in more than 50 percent of ESPN leagues, is in fact entering a great 10-day portion of his schedule and is well worth the Week 13 start.

Laken is a very talented player who has improved consistently since joining the team one week before last year’s season opener, 49ers general manager John Lynch said in a statement. This offseason, his hard work and dedication paid off as he continued to progress and performed at a high level. We were confident we could work out a contract extension with Laken and we are fired up to get that done before training camp.

Tomlinson was a first-round pick by the Lions in 2015 but the Niners declined to pick up his fifth-year option earlier this offseason. At the time, Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan indicated the Niners were hoping to re-sign Tomlinson to an extension that would bring him back at a lower rate than the more than $9.6 million that the fifth-year option would have required.

Retaining Tomlinson gives the 49ers some more stability on the offensive line. In addition to Tomlinson, left tackle Joe Staley, center Weston Richburg and right tackle Mike McGlinchey are all entrenched in their positions, which leaves what is expected to be a heated competition for the starting job at right guard. That battle is expected to come down to Joshua Garnett, Jonathan Cooper and Mike Person.

The 49ers are scheduled to open training camp on July 25.

It’s just one of those deals, Anderson said. That’s kind of been my thing since I was a kid. Obviously, I need to correct it and work on it and get better at getting guys out quicker. Something to work on.

30-offer Maryland 3-star OT Zachary Franks Jersey says recent Rutgers visit ‘helped them in my mind’

Gilman (Baltimore, Md.) three-star offensive tackle Zachary Franks Corey Perry Jersey has become a priority recruit for the Rutgers staff. Despite holding 30 offers, the 6-6, 280-pounder has been highly-receptive to the Rutgers staff and its recruiting efforts. And those efforts were put on full display on Monday when Franks visited campus.
Brian Orakpo Men's Limited Black Jersey: Nike NFL Tennessee Titans 2016 Salute to Service #98
Overall, my recruitment Ben Ijalana Womens Jersey has been really fast, so I’m still in the process of breaking down each school, deciding where I want to visit and when and then gathering all the information to see what school is the best fit for me, he said.

George’s best season came as a rookie, when he rushed for 498 yards and two touchdowns and caught 31 passes for 389 yards and two TDs.

I wouldn’t say he’s living through me, Jamal said. He lets me be myself. But he’s definitely just proud of his son for where I am. A lot of people always thought that things were handed to me due to him, and that was never the case. I worked hard for everything I had. I’m still working hard and I’m continuing to work hard.

I have a tattoo that says, ‘Success is not inherited it is earned,’ and I got that due to him. … He pushed me to be the best, and that’s what I’m shooting for.

Jamal won his longtime $40,000 bet with his father that he would be drafted higher … even if he is winning it only one dinner at a time.

I told him if he played with me now I’ll run right through him, Jamal said. But he said we’re not tough enough right now, like our era’s not tough like his era. So I told him that I’d run right through him. But at the same time, I understand that from what I hear he could have been very special.

That could allow for a time-share, so to speak, where we keep everybody sharp. But we do know Dee is going to have to play second base as we come down the stretch. Because if we want to be in the postseason — which we do — then we know who our second baseman is going to be. And it’s going to be Dee Gordon.

The Mariners acquired Gordon from the Marlins in early December. He started at second base during his three seasons with the Marlins.

Stephen Strasburg Jersey throws 6 scoreless, leaves in 7th with hand cramp

Stephen Strasburg has left his Friday start with a cramp in his left forearm or hand, according to
Men's Adidas San Jose Sharks #42 Joel Ward Authentic Camo Veterans Day Practice NHL Jersey
Strasburg cruised through the first six Womens Malcolm Brogdon Jersey innings of the game as he did not allow a single run, but after giving up four runs in the bottom of the seventh to the Braves, he had to come out with the issue.

Despite Nelson’s departure, Rodgers knows he has talented receivers in Davante Adams, Chicago Bears Jersey Randall Cobb and tight end signee Jimmy Graham. The QB also will be watching to see who emerges at WR among Geronimo Allison and the three draftees picked in the fourth and fifth rounds: J’Mon Moore, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown.

Meanwhile, Gutekunst and executive VP/director of football operations Russ Ball will continue discussions with Rodgers’ agent Dave Dunn on contract terms, total dollars, guarantees and incentives for achievements such as winning another Super Bowl.

Donaldson was removed after he reached on a walk and then went from first to third on a double by Justin Smoak in the fifth inning, according to a report by Sportsnet. He was replaced by Gio Urshella.

Like running back David Johnson, Seals-Jones once was a wide receiver and can play like one with more move opportunities. Whether it’s for Bradford or Rosen, Seals-Jones looks the part of a reliable tight end at 6-5, 243 pounds. He can build on the flash he showed with Blaine Gabbert, of all QBs, in 2017.

Jones, the 37th overall pick in 2016, made 32 tackles, 6.5 sacks and an interception, defensed seven passes and forced four fumbles last season. Pro Football Focus, which credited him with 42 pressures, lists him as one of the top 10 players primed for a first appearance on the site’s top 101 players.

Elevation, that’s the key, Jones said, via Blair Kerkhoff of the Kansas City Star. Getting better every year in my all-around game and being a more vocal leader. I think I was kind of silent last year.

Dontari Poe took Jones under his wing during Jones’ rookie season. Jones now is taking the five young defenders drafted by the Chiefs under his.

In only his third season, Jones is playing the part of leader.

Delanie Walker declares himself the best tight end in the NFL

Titans tight end Delanie Walker has a high opinion of himself.

In October 2017, Trump again spoke directly about Kaepernick, and again suggested NFL retribution against the quarterback for his kneeling during the anthem.

I watched Colin Kaepernick [in 2016], and I thought it was terrible, and then it got bigger and bigger and started mushrooming, and frankly the NFL should have suspended him for one game, and he would have never done it again,Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

They could have then suspended him for two games, and they could have suspended him if he did it a third time, for the season, and you would never have had a problem.

But I will tell you, you cannot disrespect our country, our flag, our anthem.

His return stay with the Bears ends up being a rather short one as the team released him on Monday.

McCants appeared in two games with the Bears in 2016 but hasn’t played in a game since. He was a sixth-round pick of the New York Giants in 2012 and spend most of the season on the team’s practice squad before being released and signing with the Oakland Raiders in 2013. He appeared in 28 games with Oakland over the next four season, starting three games at right tackle in 2013.

That’s it. No mention of the White House visit. No mention of the cancellation of the White House visit. Above all else, no mention of the President.

The Eagles know they’re in a no-win situation. Even if they only defend themselves or explain their position, it easily could be twisted into an attack on the President and, in turn, an opening for more tweets and taunts and tumult.

Jets’ Leonard Williams Jersey is not worried about contract situation

Jets’ Leonard Williams is not worried about contract situation More The Jets have had some high-profile contract situations with defensive linemen in recent years. What to do with Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson and Damon Harrison were all big decisions for general manager Mike Maccagnan.
Youth Joe Kelly Authentic Red Majestic Jersey: MLB Boston Red Sox #56 Alternate Cool Base
All three of those players are now gone — Wilkerson after a contract extension did not work out, Richardson after getting traded and Harrison being allowed to walk in free agency. The next big contract decision Maccagnan faces is Leonard Williams. But don’t expect the fourth-year player to make a big issue out of getting a new deal.

And I want to thank you in advance for respecting my privacy and that of my family as we work our way through this. I look forward to being back at full strength and devoting all my energy to helping make this 2018 New York Giants team the best it can be.

Leave it up to Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden to fire up season ticket holders with an update on the field-goal group.

It seems Ryan Getzlaf Womens Jersey as though undrafted rookie Eddy Pineiro already has an advantage over Authentic Brandon Phillips Jersey Oakland’s incumbent kicker, Giorgio Tavecchio. Here’s what Gruden said on a conference call with season ticket holders, via 

When you talk about Eddy Pineiro, he hasn’t missed a field goal. We watched him kick today and he made every one…. When you go back to the holder, the cool thing is we do have Johnny Townsend, who is an experienced holder and has a lot of experience holding for Pineiro, which is gonna help him tremendously.

The Raiders drafted Townsend in the fifth round to take over punting duties. He worked with Pineiro for two years at Florida in the special teams unit.

Given his preexisting relationship with Oakland’s projected starting punter, Pineiro may have the leg up on Tavecchio in the team’s kicking competition.

Alex Ovechkin Jersey tosses the first pitch and the Capitals keep the party going while watching the Nationals defeat the Giants in Washington.

WASHINGTON The Washington Capitals showed off their newly won Stanley Cup as part of a pregame ceremony Saturday before the Nationals met the San Francisco Giants.

The Giants then loaded the bases with one out an inning later to chase Gonzalez, but managed only one run on Andrew McCutchen’s sacrifice fly.
I’d be in on that, especially with our team and just how our roster’s built, he said.

Tanaka, who struck out eight and walked one, was followed for an inning apiece by Jonathan Holder, Chad Green (4-0), Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman, who finished the four-hitter for his 16th save in 17 chances. After Chapman hit Nimmo with a pitch and allowed Asdrubal Cabrera’s infield single, the closer limped and was checked by head athletic trainer Steve Donahue. Chapman retired Michael Conforto, Todd Frazier and Bruce in order.

It has been incredibly thrilling to Kevin Kiermaier Jersey celebrate our first Super Bowl Championship, the team said. Watching the entire Eagles community come together has been an inspiration. We are truly grateful for all of the support we have received and we are looking forward to continuing our preparations for the 2018 season.

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, on the other hand, was a bit more candid in his Pittsburgh Steelers Youth Jersey statement as he bashed Trump and declared City Hall is always open for a celebration.

Philly mayor Jim Kenney’s statement is pointed.

I was trying to avoid the helmet. I didn’t want to step on that that, snap my ankle, he said. I was just thankful I didn’t get hurt.

The left-hander gave up two runs and five hits in 7 1/3 innings, the longest start of his career. Gonzales is 4-0 with a 0.81 earned run average over his last five starts.

Christian Arroyo had a solo homer in the fifth and C.J. Cron added a two-run shot in the eighth off former teammate Alex Colome to pull the Rays within a run.

Sixers get: Karl-Anthony Towns Jersey, 20th pick in 2018 NBA Draft

Timberwolves get: Markelle Fultz, Dario Saric, Furkan Korkmaz, 10th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft
Women's Replica Majestic Dave Winfield Navy Blue Alternate Jersey - #31 MLB San Diego Padres Cool Base
Saric is a fan favorite and very good player. Fultz was just the No. 1 overall pick one year ago, and a potential star the Sixers surrendered serious draft capital for in 2017. But if that deal is out there, it feels like a no-brainer for Philadelphia.

Neither Jenkins nor Long have actually ever taken a knee during the anthem. But Jenkins has raised a fist and Long has stood by his side and placed a hand on his shoulder as a show of support. Now they are contemplating whether to make a different type of statement.

And they aren’t alone.

I know you’ve pissed a lot of guys off,Jenkins said of NFL owners, regardless of whether they protested or not.

That work took Giuliani to the South Lawn of the White House on Wednesday, where he held an impromptu press conference, per CNN :

Instead of avoiding reporters during a visit to meet with his client, as most presidential lawyers would do, Giuliani made a beeline for them, saying among other things that the part of the Mueller probe pertaining to the President must be done by September 1, so as not to meddle in this year’s midterm elections.

If he doesn’t file his report by September 1, mid-September, he’s clearly Womens Ted Williams Jersey doing a Comey, Giuliani said, a reference to then-FBI Director James Comey’s decision to tell Congress days before the 2016 presidential election that the FBI had reopened its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Meanwhile, the Saints are fortunate to have a key member of the defense continuing to strive for excellence after coming off an 11-5 season and an NFC South title.

With Lattimore in the lineup last season, the Saints ‘ pass defense showed Authentic James Washington Jersey vast improvement to be ranked a respectable 15th in the league after finishing at or near the bottom the NFL the past three seasons.

San Diego to get sixth AAF franchise

Football is returning to San Diego.

Via the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Alliance of American Football confirmed on Tuesday that San Diego will be the sixth city that will be getting a team in the league that will launch with eight franchises.

During cross-examination by Foster’s attorney Joshua Bentley, Ennis said she went to jail in 2011 for falsely accusing an ex-boyfriend of domestic violence.

The 49ers drafted Foster 31st overall last year after questions about his health and character caused him to drop from being a possible top 10 pick.

Foster delivered on the field, ranking second on the team with 72 tackles in 10 games as a rookie and looking like a key part of San Francisco’s defensive future.

Foster then was charged in January in Alabama with second-degree marijuana possession before the incident in February that led to this case. Foster is due in court next month for a hearing in his marijuana case.

Marshall sent out word via Instagram today that he had joined the Seahawks. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that it’s a one-year deal, worth a maximum of $2 million if he hits all his incentives.

The 34-year-old wide receiver was released by the Giants this offseason, after playing just five games last year because of an ankle injury. He’s a few years removed from peak productivity, but caught 109 passes for 1,502 yards and 14 touchdowns for the Jets in 2015.

The Seahawks are in the midst of a considerable retooling, and clearly needed to reinforce their offense after a number of offseason departures including wide receiver Paul Richardson.

At Southwestern, after being placed ninth on the depth chart, he moved up five spots because of happenstance — transfers, injuries, a couple players deciding to focus on baseball over football.

Still, he was the fourth-string QB entering fall camp, and the starter was set in stone. Perez won the competition to be second string, and eventually the starter got hurt, giving him a chance to play.

Matt Ryan Jersey was incredibly unlucky on interceptions last year

Atlanta’s Matt Ryan threw 12 interceptions last season, which is not an inordinately high number for a quarterback who starts all 16 games. But it was a lot more interceptions than he should have thrown.
Limited Chandler Jones Jersey Youth Adidas Brooklyn Nets #32 Julius Erving Swingman Gray Alternate NBA Jersey
According to data from Joe Montana Youth jersey, Ryan threw five interceptions that should have been caught by his own teammates, an incredibly high number of passes that were thrown into his own receivers’ hands, only to be tipped into the hands of a defensive player who made the interception.

How rare is that? Football Outsiders has been tracking tipped interceptions for years, and no quarterback has had that many tipped interceptions in a season since 2010. Last year Tom Brady, Philip Rivers, Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger all threw more passes than Ryan and had zero passes tipped by their own receivers and intercepted.

That’s what one person thought. He approached Layla Morris, 38, who works in credit control, and asked if she was聽the actress from Suits. As a fan of Suits, herself, Morris was amused. I watched all of Suits. Meghan stood out. She as the girl you wanted to be, she says.

She lives 90 minutes away and brought her children, 7 and 3, to Windsor to soak up the atmosphere. They are very excited, but can’t understand why they are not invited.

Consistent with Pat’s long-standing succession plan, our decisions are not to be dictated by the short-term or personal interests of any individual. We will vigorously defend Pat’s plan in responding to these and any statements that are contrary to Pat’s words and intentions.

The statement from Ellis reads:

As a trustee and someone Pat designated to oversee his team, I have an enormous responsibility to carefully administer his succession plan and make decisions in the best interests of the Broncos. We will continue to follow Pat’s blueprint 鈥?and nobody else’s 鈥?while keeping our focus as an organization on having a successful season.

Dez Bryant Jersey (released) and Jason Witten (retired) were both franchise stalwarts, and now both are gone.聽

Chubb brings a rare combination of size, athletic ability and technical prowess to the next level. His diversified skill set is a perfect match opposite Miller, especially if the Broncos can develop packages that put Chubb on the inside, sandwiched between Miller, Shaq Barrett and Shane Ray. That’s a lot of talent coming at the quarterback on key downs.
Youth Mirza Teletovic Swingman Black Nike Jersey: NBA Milwaukee Bucks #35 Statement Edition
The Lions also signed LeGarrette Blount and drafted Auburn running back Kerryon Johnson in Womens T.J. McDonald Jersey the second round, giving Detroit’s running game a chance to finally come to life. Expect Ragnow to be at the center of any improvement seen up front for the Lions offense.聽

Womens Martavis Bryant Jersey First-year general manager Brian Gutekunst made a bunch of big moves to patch up the roster left behind by Ted Thompson, including trading for backup quarterback DeShone Kizer, signing tight end Jimmy Graham and cornerback Tramon Williams and using his first two draft picks on talented cornerbacks (Jaire Alexander, Josh Jackson).聽

City manager Pep Guardiola says Sane can become one of the world’s best players and is impressed by the timing of his runs and his delivery.

Ousmane Dembele is even quicker than France teammate Kylian Mbappe.
Mens Frederik Andersen Jersey
The 20-year-old forward is lethal launching runs from deep and is near-unstoppable when he’s in full flow.

Dembele displayed his vast repertoire in a Spanish league game for Barcelona against Villarreal recently. Receiving the ball near the halfway line with his back to play, he flicked it with his heel and beat three players before passing for Philippe Coutinho to score.

Dembele also scored a superb solo goal: a mixture of strength, skill and speed. Turning again from midfield, he took the ball past several players and dinked it over the goalkeeper.

His exquisite finish had a touch of former Brazil great Ronaldo about it.
