The current pitching landscape also makes things way more complicated in formats with an innings or games started cap.

There’s less margin of error, since you can’t look to overcome one bad choice by compensating for it with a high volume of better choices.

Jones then helped add two more for the Blue Jackets, giving him four goals — three of them game-winners — and three assists in his last three games. He set up Wennberg’s tip-in goal at 7:51 and scored his own at 14:03, his 14th this season. Jones’ 48 points are three short of the franchise record for a blueliner, set in 2013-14 by James Wisniewski.

I can do a USA tour, whether it’s Portland, Seattle, Chicago or wherever, and I’m not getting these crowds, Thompson said. But I’m taking a five-city tour in China and there’s thousands of people waiting to see me, and I can’t believe it. The hunger from these people just to see one of their favorite basketball players is so cool. Knowing I’m 7,000 miles away from home and I can just shake their hand or give them a smile and they freak out, it’s unbelievable.

The Bills have the picks to get their quarterback in the draft. With the first and fourth overall picks, the Browns still control the board, but Buffalo now has the 12th pick and the 22nd, the only other team with two picks in the opening frame, more than enough trade capital to move up higher into the first round for a quarterback.

Dealing Glenn also means there’s one less team looking for a left tackle on the free agent market. That’s either good news for the handful of squads still looking for veteran blind side help, and potentially bad news for players like Nate Solder or Chris Hubbard.

But after spending two years in that 3-4 under Pettine and replacement Ray Horton, the Browns moved to a 4-3 under defensive coordinator Gregg Williams last season.

Shelton is never going to rack up big stats, but he was an effective piece in a Browns run defense that quietly finished fourth against the run in DVOA in 2017.

Splitting out individual pieces of a run defense is nearly impossible, but during Shelton’s career in Cleveland, the Browns were far stouter with him on the field.

Cleveland allowed 3.9 yards per carry and 20.6 percent of rushes to turn into a first down or a touchdown with Shelton on the field.

With the former 12th overall pick off the field, the Browns allowed 4.7 yards per rush and a conversion 26.2 percent of the time.

Kyrie Irving, Marcus Smart among Celtics ruled out

The Boston Celtics officially ruled out five players, including guards Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart, for Wednesday’s visit from the Washington Wizards.

Jakub Voracek Authentic Jersey [A rash of injury] sucks but it’s part of the NBA. It happens, said Rozier. A lot of teams are going through that. Collectively, as a group, we’ve just got to do what we can to pick up guys, and it’s not going to be easy but part of the NBA, this is what it’s about, opportunity.

Added Morris: It’s the NBA. Lot of injuries, lot of wear and tear on guys’ bodies. It’s why you’ve got [17] players on the roster.
Michael Thomas Mens Jersey
New York closed within four in the fourth quarter as Trey Burke led a rally, but Smith made a 3-pointer and Barnes followed with four straight points to put it away.

Mavericks: Dorian Finney-Smith started after sitting out against Houston while continuing his recovery from left quadriceps tendinitis.

Knicks: Enes Kanter (back spasms) and Lance Thomas (sprained right thumb) were back in the starting lineup. … The Knicks signed F Troy Williams for the rest of the season after the expiration of his second 10-day contract. Williams averaged 8.1 points in eight games after signing the initial contract on Feb. 21.

Ball has averaged 2.0 steals and 3.0 3-pointers during the past five games to go with his scoring, rebounding Authentic Kendall Lamm Jersey and distributing. That’s a great sign. Nance continues to flourish in the Cavs’ starting lineup, averaging 16.2 PPG and 11.4 RPG during the past five games.

As for some names who are new to the list this week, it starts in Minnesota with Nemanja Bjelica (106). Bjelica has filled in beautifully in the absence of Jimmy Butler, stepping into the starting lineup and showing what he can do. He has averaged 38.6 MPG during the past five games and had 30 points and 12 rebounds two games ago against Boston, the top defense in the NBA.

Orlando’s Jonathon Simmons (132) and Atlanta’s Dewayne Dedmon (137) are two others to vault into the rankings this week.

I’m not here because I’m the Warriors coach. Actually I am, because I wouldn’t have been invited. I’m here because I’m a citizen of this country and we’re a democracy and when people say stick to sports, stick to coaching, that means nothing, Kerr said Monday at Newark Memorial High School. I feel like it’s my responsibility to speak on something that’s very important to me.

The Colts are beginning the Frank Reich era with a ton of money available to spend in NFL free agency.

According to, the team is more than $73 million under the salary cap for 2018, the third most room in the league.
Men's Nike Cincinnati Bengals #26 Josh Shaw Black Team Color Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
The Colts should not go nuts throwing around cash. They instead should look for the sweet spot of quantity and quality from the open market. Before they go to work addressing their many needs with their current seven draft picks for April, Reich and general manager Chris Ballard could use several veteran complementary parts.

There are plenty of good fits to improve the interior. The Titans’ Josh Kline, the Jaguars’ Patrick Omameh and the Chiefs’ Zach Fulton top the ideal, reasonable free-agent list. Should the Jets not go QB, RB or defense with No. 6 overall, Notre Dame guard Quinton Nelson would be a can’t-miss pick as an exceptional pulling athlete. A little later, Georgia’s Isaiah Wynn and Arkansas’ Frank Ragnow have appeal because of their pro-position versatility. Auburn’s Braden Smith (guard) and Alabama’s Bradley Bozeman (center) are more position-specific targets.

Finding tackle solutions will be harder, but the Jets can start by considering the Patriots’ Cameron Fleming for left tackle. Between Wynn, Pittsburgh’s Brian O’Neill, Western Michigan’s Chukwuma Okorafor and UCLA’s Kolton Miller, there are intriguing prospects in the draft beyond the early first round.
Limited Mens Brian Leetch Jersey
The Lions’ Tahir Whitehead also would be a strong get at a higher price. On the cheaper side, the Bills’ Preston Brown needs to be considered. The Eagles’ Nigel Bradham is Authentic Milan Lucic Jersey an excellent cover man and has swung well from inside to outside, so a Reich reunion can’t be ruled out. Older versatile options are the Jaguars’ Paul Posluzny and the Raiders’ NaVorro Bowman.

Like they do with offensive line, the Colts need to come away with a significant addition here from a strong position pool in line with their system.

The Giants are ready to spend in free agency in order to upgrade their offensive line, and they will need to put a stud workhorse behind that improved run blocking. Barkley will be a heavy favorite for 2018 offensive rookie of the year no matter where he goes.

Indianapolis Colts: Bradley Chubb, DE, N.C. State
Limited Womens Bernie Parent Jersey The Colts need to revitalize their pass rush in their transition to a base 4-3. Chubb is explosive off the edge and can be their best pick at the position since Dwight Freeney 16 years ago.

NFL Combine results: Winners and losers from the QBs on the bench press, 40-yard dash, and other workouts

Quarterbacks are always put under the biggest of microscopes at the NFL Combine. It’s how it’s always been, and how it will always be.
Men's Game Russell Wilson White Jersey: Road #3 NFL Seattle Seahawks Nike
Game Carl Yastrzemski Jersey This year, there are five quarterbacks who are being looked at more than others. Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, Josh Rosen, and Baker Mayfield. It’s hard to tell where these guys will land in the NFL, but this week at the combine will undoubtedly have an affect in shaping out the April draft.

The deal has forced Bowman to make some tough decisions, like parting with Niklas Hjalmarsson and Artemi Panarin (the skilled winger was due for a decent contract extension that would hardly fit under Chicago’s cap). It will force Bowman to get crafty yet again this offseason, cutting ties with popular players in order to circumvent a costly mistake. In signing Seabrook, the Blackhawks paid for past performance and not future projection. But hey, at least they won three Cups.

Greg Wyshynski, senior writer: The hallmark of any bloated, regrettable contract is how hard a team is going to work to make it disappear. So, with that established: Bobby Ryan has a quagmire of a deal with the Ottawa Senators.

Indianapolis has plenty of cap space to work with and should be able to negotiate long-term deals with the impending free agents the team hopes to keep. Among the top priorities for the Colts are cornerback Rashaan Melvin and offensive tackle Jack Mewhort, but it would be surprising if either got the franchise tag.

Hurst will have to get a medical re-check after a heart condition kept him from working out at the combine. But at Michigan, it certainly didn’t look to be a problem. Hurst is a gap-shooting dynamo up front and would Josh Hill Womens Jersey give Atlanta another player who can create pressure up front.

This is a pick that just makes too much sense to change. Goedert would be an Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate in New Orleans’ dynamic offense.

Vander Esch probably locked up a spot in the first round at the combine with excellent numbers in most of his workouts. With Ryan Shazier officially out for next season, Vander Esch can be used in many of the same ways.

J.J. Barea on John Wall: ‘I don’t think his teammates like him’

Mavericks guard J.J. Barea is no longer a fan of Wizards point guard John Wall.

Barea’s Mavericks blew out Wall’s Wizards 98-75 Monday night in Dallas. Barea scored seven points, grabbed four rebounds and dished out two assists while Wall finished with 11 points on 4-of-15 shooting.

Pominville also showed he hasn’t lost his touch against Toronto.

Re-acquired by the Sabres in a trade last summer after a four-plus-season stint in Minnesota, Pominville now has 19 goals and 50 points in 51 career games with Buffalo against Toronto.

“Wow,” the former Sabres captain said. “I should play them more often.”

Leo Komarov had two goals and Mitch Marner also scored for Toronto.

Frederik Andersen stopped 19 shots in allowing five goals for the second consecutive outing after being yanked midway through a 5-2 loss to Washington in an outdoor game played at the U.S. Naval Academy on Saturday.

“It just happened. It really hasn’t set in. To sit here and say I grasp what happened tonight, I’d be lying. I was just determined. I was just locked in, tuned into what was going on out there. These points tonight mattered. We needed them. The points I put in the basket were instrumental. It means a lot more.

“We have four days off coming up here, and I would have been sick as a dog if we would have lost this game. I just wanted to step up and inspire us to play well, and it turned into something special. To put on a show like this for the fans here in LA is truly something special. I grew up in front of these people, and now they are seeing me as an older, young man.”

With this performance being so iconic, people can’t help but point out how Jalen Rose was mostly guarding Bryant the entire game. Rose has been mocked for this ever since it happened, so in a video for Grantland (RIP), Rose shared his side of the story.giants_145

NBA All-Star 2018: Spotlight shining on Rookie of the Year candidates in early events

Bobby Hebert Kids Jersey Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell and 76ers first-year man Ben Simmons Womens Julius Peppers Jersey have separated from the pack in the NBA’s Rookie of the Year race.
Youth Ryan Callahan Authentic Green Adidas Jersey: NHL Tampa Bay Lightning #24 Salute to Service
Simmons already has six triple-doubles; Mitchell is leading all rookies in scoring, and both players are earning high praise from all over the place. Mitchell couldn’t contain his own praise of Simmons before the Rising Stars Challenge Friday.

He’s talented. He’s close to being an All-Star this year, Mitchell told reporters Friday. He’s really talented and can do a lot of things that a lot of rookies can’t. He’s instinctive. He knows the game. He knows how to get his teammates open and knows what to do.

Figure out the road woes. The Timberwolves are 24-7 at home, second-best in the league. But away from home, they’re just 12-18. They have a plus-6.5 net rating in their home games and a minus-0.5 rating on the road. It’s a young group, but if they’re to stick around in the playoffs more than a handful of games, they’ll have to win on the road.

Rest LeBron. James has not missed a game this year, and at 37.0 minutes per game, he is on pace to top 3,000 regular-season minutes for the first time since 2010-11. There will be a temptation to keep playing James so that he can get accustomed to playing with new teammates Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr., Rodney Hood and George Hill. But rest of James will be more important heading into the postseason.

You never thought you could be them, but you can grab inspiration from them. I never felt I could be the president of the United States, but I grabbed inspiration from that. And this time right now, with the president of the United States, it’s at a bad time. And while we cannot change what comes out of that man’s mouth, we can continue to alert the people that watch us, that listen to us, (that) this is not the way.

Durant, who has been outspoken about Trump in the past as well, agreed with James and shared his own thoughts.

When we’re talking about leadership, and what’s going on in our country, it’s all about leadership, Durant said. And I learned that from basketball. I learned a lot of life skills from playing basketball. You need to empower people, you need to encourage people. And that’s what builds a great team. And I feel like our team as a country is not ran by a great coach.

Give the ball to De’Aaron Fox. There is not much for the Kings to play for in the coming weeks, but seeing whether Fox — the fifth pick in last year’s draft — can handle the workload as a lead guard and improve his perimeter jumper will be worth watching. Fox is promising, and a good finish could go a long way toward securing his status as the point guard of the future, a spot that has been such a longtime bane for this organization.

All or Nothing, winner of the 2017 Sports Emmy for Outstanding Serialized Sports Documentary, is the first series to take viewers inside the locker room, on the sidelines and off the field for an unprecedented look inside an NFL franchise’s complete season.

The question with Sam is two years ago he plays in 15 games, starts, plays well. This year, he plays in one game and gets hurt, so you go back and look at his track record.

Bobby Orr Mens Jersey You go back with Case. He plays outstanding this year, and you go back and look at Authentic Robbie Ray Jersey what he’s done in the past and what he’s done this year. Then really what we have to try to do is figure out what is the best scenario for us and understanding that trying to answer these questions on these three guys and try to go from there. So that’s with (general manager Rick Spielman) and myself and (executive vice president of football operations Rob Brzezinski) and how it affects the salary cap and how it affects the rest of our football team.

Harvard-Westlake High School filed a workplace violence prevention restraining order against Martin on Thursday, according to a reports from ESPN and TMZ Sports.

The requested order prohibits Martin from coming closer than 150 yards from the campus of his alma mater in Los Angeles, which closed last Friday in response to the post. However, police told ESPN there was no direct threat to the school. It has also been reported that Martin is being held in a mental health facility.

Martin made headlines after photo of a shotgun and ammunition was posted on his Instagram account that said: When you’re a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge.

That’s six impact fantasy lines spread evenly across both teams. Jackson (59.7 percent availability), Harrison (85.9 percent availability) and Martin (99.0 percent availability) were all streamable players who could have been picked up in most leagues or heavily considered as undervalued DFS options.

The surgery, which will take place later this month in New York City, will involve taking part of Kelly’s fibula and blood vessels from his leg. Kelly told WGRZ that the procedure will improve his quality of life, but it is unclear whether Kelly will also undergo radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

The Browns currently have two terrific shots at getting Hunter Henry Authentic Jersey back on the rookie franchise QB track: the No. 1 and No. 4 4 overall picks in the draft. But they also have a multitude of team needs and could use those picks to bolster other weaknesses, taking care of quarterback with a veteran, semi-long-term solution.

Those solutions start and end with free agents Kirk Cousins and AJ McCarron. Alex Smith is off the market. Tyrod Taylor, Case Keenum, Sam Bradford and others are two stop-gappy in the vein of Josh McCown, Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell.

Albert, 33, briefly retired last year after the Miami Dolphins traded him to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He changed his mind one week later, but the Jaguars released him and he remained unsigned last season.

The two-time Pro Bowl selection has played in 120 games (118 starts) in nine NFL seasons for the Kansas City Chiefs and Dolphins.

He was the 15th overall pick by the Chiefs in the 2008 draft.

This drill is all about assessing a prospect’s ability to change directions quickly, bend and accelerate. Defensive backs and pass-rushers are good players to keep an eye on. Of course, a lot goes into being an elite edge rusher, but most of the NFL’s best register outstanding times in the three-cone.

Giants to hire Mike Shula as offensive coordinator, report says

There are no shortage of prop bets for Timberlake’s performance, from his outfit choice (what color shoes he’ll wear for the first song and if he’ll be wearing a hat) to his set list (whether or not he’ll perform a Prince song).

I’d expect a couple songs from when Timberlake first went solo (“Cry Me a River” and “Rock Your Body”), followed by a compilation of his solo work since, including a bit of “SexyBack”, “What Goes Around … Comes Around”, “Suit and Tie”, and his latest smash from the Trolls movie, “Can’t Stop The Feeling!”.

McNabb and the Eagles were coming off a Super Bowl appearance against the New England Patriots. Unfortunately, that was one of the last times the Eagles really contended with McNabb under center. The following season, the team went 4-5 in his starts, as he missed seven games with a groin injury.

The hype surrounding Alexander going into the 2006 season was huge. He had been improving every season, and had just got done rushing for 1,880 yards and 27 touchdowns. Then, the curse struck. Alexander followed up a spectacular season by playing in just 10 games and rushing for 896 yards.

When Graham was traded to the Seahawks from the Saints in 2015, it was more about business than hard feelings, as he netted both center Max Unger and a first-round draft pick. The timing lines up with a potential welcome reunion for both sides.

What happened to Gronkowski? Gronkowski was concussed when Jaguars safety Barry Church landed a jarring hit to Gronkowski’s helmet during the Patriots’ 24-20 comeback win over the Jaguars. Church was flagged for unnecessary roughness and fined $24,309 for the hit.

What’s the latest from Super Bowl practice? The Patriots held Gronkowski out of practice for the entire bye week between the conference championship and the postseason. But Gronkowski participated in some of the Patriots’ football-specific drills on Saturday.

He caught a few uncontested passes in the portion of practice the Patriots allowed media to watch, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss. That suggests he’s close to being cleared for full participation. On Thursday, he finally got the OK from team doctors to resume full football activities.

Popovich had said that Leonard didn’t reinjure the quad and insisted that the organization was erring on the side of caution with its franchise player.

We did not match their work ethic, Canada forward Derek Roy said. It stings a lot. It is not a good feeling to lose a game like that.

Leonard made his season debut on Dec. 12. He later missed three games with the shoulder injury, then returned to the lineup on Jan. 13 against Denver, scoring 19 points in 28 minutes. Days later, Authentic Melker Karlsson Jersey the Spurs made public a decision to shut down Leonard indefinitely, sending him back to San Antonio from a team trip through the Northeast.

We’ll see. I want to be positive, said veteran point guard Tony Parker, who returned in November from a ruptured quadriceps tendon suffered during last season’s Western Conference semifinals. I had the same injury. I came back. So I want to stay positive that he’ll be back. I know he’s working hard. I’m just going to think positive.
Leo Komarov Jersey
Well, we’ve got to move on, Popovich said. The team has to realize that this is who we are, this is who we have, this is [who is] gonna play. Wishing and hoping doesn’t do anybody any good. We’ve got to do what we can to be the best team possible as the season winds down. There’s only 23 games left, something like that.

Manziel didn’t stick around the way Mayfield did 鈥?the latter put Oklahoma’s defensively challenged team in position for a championship before he left. Jackson was spectacular in 2016 and wasn’t far off in ’17, all the while benefiting from more pro-style concepts in Louisville’s spread offense.

There’s room to grow for both as players on and off the field. Their stories as NFL hopefuls have not yet been written, so it’s ridiculous to start writing them off as sequels to non-success tales.

As Mayfield and Jackson run the gauntlet of passing, running, poking, prodding, interviewing and interrogating, you can bet some teams still won’t shake preconceived notions of their types of quarterbacks. Those teams could end up being right, but there’s a much greater chance they’re wrong. The very definition of intangibles says they’re impossible to grasp.
