Who gets credit for Gregorius turning into basestealer

Romine’s career-best 11 game hitting streak ended while the Yankees were sweeping a two-game set with the Jays and his team-best average dropped from.373 to.344, but his game-calling again was stellar.

Romine did an unbelievable job, Gray said. I didn’t shake him Basketball Cheap Jerseys one time. We were going in and out throwing pitches that I normally (don’t throw)… but I just got convicted in what he was putting down and threw it.

Romine, who is a lot like Aaron Judge when it comes to deflecting credit, played down his role in Gray’s success.

You’ve got to be able to read what’s working better than the other one per se, Romine said. Or if all of them are working, it’s just kind of flipping a coin. But I think we were primarily sticking with the (sinking) two-seamer and the curveball and we were able to sprinkle some sliders in there to keep it going.

Poyer had five interceptions, 95 tackles, 13 passes defensed and a touchdown in the first season of his four-year, $13 million deal with the team, but the 27-year-old has been around for half a decade, and it’s possible his career year came a season too late. 

White had four interceptions, 18 passes defensed and a touchdown while making nearly $750,000 less than Poyer on average. The 23-year-old 2017 first-round pick made a similar impact for less money and has a higher upside, so he gets the crown. 

This one was basically a toss-up between 2015 third-round pick Eli Harold and 2017 third-rounder Ahkello Witherspoon, both of whom have become solid young defensive starters on cheap rookie contracts for the San Francisco 49ers Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys. 

Witherspoon didn’t get onto the field during the first month of his rookie season but became a regular starter by November. Per PFF, he allowed a passer rating of just 66.4 between Week 13 and Week 16, and he didn’t give up a touchdown in coverage after Week 12. That probably indicates he’s on a better trajectory than Harold, who wasn’t a liability but failed to take a leap forward in his third season.

Goff with the Rams was forced to sit behind Case Keenum for the first nine games of 2016 despite the starter’s shaky play and cries from fans in favor of the rookie.

Once he got his chance, Goff’s seven games as starter in 2016 were shaky. Then LA went through a coaching change.

No, the early results for Goff were not good, and his sitting behind Basketball Cheap Jerseys Keenum did not appear helpful at the end of the 2016 season. But the transition to new head coach Sean McVay that offseason led to a boom in Goff’s play in 2017. He now looks like the franchise quarterback the Rams hoped for when they drafted him No. 1 overall in 2016.

This one’s tricky, because Prescott, drafted in the fourth round, was not selected as the Cowboys’ franchise-quarterback-to-be. Incumbent starter and seasoned veteran Tony Romo’s preseason injury changed everything, and Prescott unexpectedly started Week 1 of the regular season.

It wasn’t until his second season, after Kyle Orton was benched, that Tebow mania arrived.

The Broncos were bad in 2010, and they were off to a bad start in 2011, too, until Kyle Orton lost his starting job to Tebow in Week 5. The Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys Broncos won seven of their next eight games and won their division with an 8-8 record. Then came the famous OT win over the Steelers. Tebow mania was fun while it lasted, but Denver eventually moved on when it realize Tebow’s climax as an NFL quarterback had come and gone.

Newton was drafted No. 1 overall to take over the reigns Jimmy Clausen couldn’t handle in Carolina. There wasn’t much of a battle in camp … for good reason.

The Panthers’ struggle to win games in Newton’s first two seasons could point to a failure, but the one bright spot was his 2011 Offensive Rookie of the Year award. It took the team a few years to match the quarterback’s level of play, culminating in Newtons 2015 NFL MVP award.

Damian Lillard posts 50 points in three quarters vs. Kings

Damian Lillard wasn’t messing around Friday night against the Kings.

The All-Star guard scored 50 points with six assists in a 118-100 win over Sacramento, and he didn’t even get on the court in the fourth quarter. It was Lillard’s fourth 50-point game of his career, and he needed only 29 minutes to do it.

In Gordon’s case, though, there will be offers — he is only 22, and his ever-improving production makes him worth the restricted risk for young teams looking to bolster their rosters.

League sources told Sporting News this week that the Suns are expected to be suitors for Gordon, who starred at Arizona for one memorable season. Phoenix has ample cap room and a roster in need of more proven players. Another team with interest in Gordon, according to sources, would be the rebuilding Mavericks, who have been eager to find a budding star to fill in alongside Harrison Barnes and Dennis Smith Jr., softening the blow of Dirk Nowitzki’s retirement, which could come in just months.

The Pacers intend to investigate restricted free agents, too, hoping to add young talent to an improving roster. Still, if any team makes a formal offer, the Magic can match it.

The third window (June 25-July 3, 2018) of the First Round is still crucial to these teams as results of every single game carries over to the Second Round.

All regional Qualifiers for China 2019 see three teams from each group advance to the next phase.

A 23-point haul form Moustapha Fall helped France cruise past Belgium 64-49 to remain unbeaten atop Group E.

Serbia, the 2014 runners-up, needed a late three-pointer from Aleksa Avramovic to edge Austria 82-81 and secure progression from Group G with Germany.

Group F remains tight after wins by Iceland (76-75 over the Czech Republic) and Finland (75-70 over Bulgaria), while Greece are through from Group H after beating Great Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys Britain 75-70.

Australia are through to the second round of the Asian qualifiers after beating Cheap Basketball Jerseys UK Chinese Taipei 88-68 to earn a fourth win from as many matches, while Iran, Kazakhstan and the Philippines all improved their records to 3-1 with victories.

Tight end Kyle Rudolph (leg) was back practicing for the first time Tuesday after being out for two weeks.

Amazing the difference a year makes. Unlike this time last season, Minnesota isn’t dealing with a devastating injury to Teddy Bridgewater and last-minute scramble at quarterback. Ahead of the opener Monday night against the Saints, the Vikings’ starters are healthy and ready to go. Minnesota was nearly at full strength during its first practice of the week with defensive end Brian Robison (leg) and guard Danny Isidora (undisclosed) as the only two players not participating. Robison told reporters last week that he anticipates playing after missing the preseason opener because of an unrevealed injury and the final two games of the preseason because of a leg injury sustained in practice. Tight end Kyle Rudolph (leg) was back practicing for the first time Tuesday after being out for two weeks.

I tried to give him it all, but he ducked. I was trying to hit his ribs, I’m not going to lie to you. I didn’t think he saw me. I swear I didn’t think he did. JPP [Jason Pierre-Paul] was like “I’m not letting you get there before me.” It was a real race (to the QB) between us two.

That’s a nice move by JPP. And it’s against [Jason] Peters. I played with Peters back in Buffalo my last year in the league. He’s athletic. With that size? Dude. He can play. And look at JPP take the edge on him.

He almost got there before me, I’ll tell you that much. Crazy part about that, my blitzing? I have to really disguise it. Quarterbacks see me Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys down there, they think I’m coming. Most of Cheap Basketball Jerseys the time we are in man, or it turns into some form of man. My disguise of blitzes is very, very key. I try not to get the running back to come block me. If they do, I’m not really worried about it.

And what of the pressure of being the high-priced hometown kid at MSG?

When asked if his new prized acquisition will pair with team captain — and fellow All Star — Ryan McDonagh on the team’s top defensive pairing, Gorton demurred, leaving that decision to head coach Alain Vigneault.

However, the GM did add, “We’re bringing him here to play a lot.”

And what of the pressure of being the high-priced hometown kid at MSG?

“There’s going to be a lot of pressure, but that’s something that is exciting to me,” answered Shattenkirk, who grew up north of New York City in Westchester County. “As a local boy I had a chance to experience it as a fan, and now I welcome it. No matter where you go, you’re trying to win your team a Stanley Cup, and there’s no better place to try and do it for me than in New York.”=

And yet the people who work in that department did nothing to punish Wingels. He was not fined. He will not be suspended, according to NBC’s Pro Hockey Talk. The pretenders at Player Safety didn’t have much to say publicly. But then, no one there has said much at all during the playoffs. The last tweet from that office’s Twitter account announced a small fine against Edmonton’s Leon Draisaitl for spearing. That was on April 19.

In the opposite locker room, Capitals coach Barry Trotz defended Cheap Blank Hockey Jerseys Niskanen, who doesn’t carry a reputation as a dirty player and has never been suspended in 10 NHL seasons.

“I thought it was a hockey play,” Trotz told reporters. “Crosby (was) Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys coming down. (Niskanen) just sort of ran into him.”

Niskanen called the play “unfortunate,” adding “I certainly didn’t mean to injure him.”

“I think he’s coming across, trying to score,” he said. “As he’s doing that, he’s getting lower and lower. And when it’s happening that fast, my stick and his head [collided]. I wasn’t extending, trying to hit him in the head. It happened quickly.
