This one makes a lot of sense, given Sogard’s lack of production before 2017 mixed with Villar being responsible for the deepest hole in the Brewers’ lineup. Kinsler also isn’t in a situation like Justin Verlander where the money still owed to him is so huge that a deal seems unlikely even if it makes sense.
Kinsler to the Brewers is an A- rumor. It’s easy to believe it could happen, Kinsler is at a point in his career where the Tigers don’t really need to try to hold on to him any longer than they have, and the likelihood feels high given Milwaukee’s needs.
In his interview with The New York Times, Syndergaard says:
So much of what I’ve learned this year, is that I thought I was doing what I needed to be doing. But I realize now how messed up my body was, and I’m working hard to get it back to normal.
That includes doing too much yoga and Pilates, which he says were not exactly sports specific, focusing more on cardio, stretching to become a more well-rounded athlete, and working on his core strength and posture to avoid lower back tightness down the road.
He also qualified the amount of weightlifting he did, with previous estimates stating that he gained 17 pounds in muscle before spring training this year. Syndergaard says he wasn’t powerlifting but that when he was working with weights, certain things were incorrect about his form, especially in his lower body. He needs to build a better base to avoid such time away from the game in the future.
He’s now working with Eric Cressey, who has worked with multiple Cy Young winners before, and doing the Kinstretch program, which is a more athletic advanced yoga that helps with strength and flexibility.
As mentioned above, James and Irving were spectacular for much of Game 3. While Kevin Love showed tremendous effort with 13 rebounds (four offensive) and six steals, he was 1 of 9 from the field in 37 minutes.
Back in Game 2, James posted a triple-double, and Love started 4 of 5 from the field on the way to 27 points. Irving had 19 points on 8-of-23 shooting and looked out of sync for a large portion of the game. It certainly wasn’t the best version of the All-Star guard.
Golden State holds a commanding 3-0 lead against the Cavaliers with a chance to close out the series Friday. Durant scored a team-high 31 points for the Warriors, including 14 in the fourth quarter. That shot could be the indelible image of this series in which the Warriors continue to knock down 3-pointers at the right time, all the time.
Durant’s shot wasn’t the dagger. It was the 16th dagger from 3-point range that put the Warriors one step closer to a 16-0 playoff run. Golden State knocked down 48.5 percent of its 3-pointers in Game 3.
This time, they did it in Cleveland. That’s even more impressive. The Warriors shot a combined 21 of 67 from 3-point range in Game 3 losses to the Cavaliers at the Q the last two seasons. This is the best Golden State has shot at Cleveland in the NBA Finals since hitting 17 of 36 in Game 4 of last year’s series.
That put the Warriors one win away from the championship. Now, they are back in that Cheap Jarome Iginla Jerseys spot again. The difference here, as you’ve heard a few times by now, is Durant.
He played the role of the third Splash Brother in this one. Durant knocked down two quick 3-pointers early and finished 4 of 7 from 3-point range. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson Cheap Ireland Football Jerseys combined to hit 11 of 20 from 3-point range for the game.
Dallas Keuchel will miss his upcoming start, though he isn’t anticiapted to miss much more.
The Astros on Saturday placed the left-handed ace on the 10-day disabled list with a pinched nerve in his neck, the team announced.
The move, retroactive to Wednesday, is expected to keep Keuchel off the field for only one turn in rotation. He was initially scheduled to start Monday in Miami against the Marlins.
From 2006 to 2008, an exhaustive search was launched in Congaree — the Ivory-billed’s distinctive double-knock had been reportedly heard — which has thousands of acres of thick cedar swamps and old-growth bottomland forest, prime Ivory-billed habitat. Exactly 8,893 official survey hours later , no conclusive evidence was found.
Still, hope exists in Congaree and elsewhere in the American South.
Same for Tebow. Hope exists, though an eventual call-up to the majors based on merit (more on that in a moment) feels like the longest of long shots right about now. More Gamecocks than Ivory-billed, but not by much.
He’s batting .230 for the Fireflies, with a .319 on-base percentage, three home runs, 14 RBIs and a .688 OPS. To be fair, I should point out that it’s not like anyone on that club is lighting it up, though — of the 13 players with at least 35 at-bats, only two of them are batting higher than .245.
What does that mean? It’s honestly hard to know.
