David Price impresses in loss to Astros, but key pitching questions remain

David Price impresses in loss to Astros, but key pitching questions remain

MLB JERSEYS
A year ago at this time, David Price was on the disabled list, still more than a week away from making his first appearance following eight weeks of inaction because of inflammation in his left elbow. He did return, albeit in a limited role, pitching in five games down the stretch in relief without a run allowed and then throwing 6 2/3 scoreless innings out of the Red Sox bullpen in the four-game AL Division Series loss to the Astros. It had been a difficult season for the left-hander, with the first lengthy DL stint of his career and an ugly confrontation with Red Sox broadcaster Dennis Eckersley during a team flight. The first-round flameout, even to a better Houston team, put a final scar on the season.nike nfl jerseys…

Joe Maddon still wondering why Friday’s game vs. Nationals was postponed

Joe Maddon still wondering why Friday’s game vs. Nationals was postponed

MLB JERSEYS
While attempting to fit in their Saturday doubleheader between raindrops, the Chicago Cubs are still wondering why their game against the Washington Nationals wasn't played on Friday night. "If you want the true story, contact MLB," manager Joe Maddon said Saturday. "It was confusing to us, also. We played when we should not have and then not played when we should have." The teams waited out a 1:21 delay to begin the game on Friday only to play 1 2/3 innings before the rains came again. This time, they stuck around for almost three more hours, forcing a cancellation, but curiously only after the rain ceased at about 11:30 p.m. ET. The Cubs were ready to play then.cheap nfl jerseys china nike "We waited as long as we did, and…

How many wins does Todd Bowles need to keep his job with Jets?

How many wins does Todd Bowles need to keep his job with Jets?

NFL JERSEYS
The months-long fascination with Sam Darnold has provided cover for New York Jets coach Todd Bowles, who has lost 22 of his past 32 games. Ordinarily, a coach with that kind of record feels his tush getting warmer, but there isn't much chatter outside the organization about his job security. Or inside it, for that matter. Part of that is the Darnold phenomenon. That Bowles received a two-year contract extension at the end of last season also is a factor, along with CEO Christopher Johnson saying there's no playoff mandate for Bowles and general manager Mike Maccagnan. From all indications, Bowles has the full support of his bosses.cheap nfl jerseys china nike He's certainly not operating like a coach worried about his job. Would he start a rookie quarterback if…

Saquon Barkley’s debut with Giants should include plenty of touches

Saquon Barkley’s debut with Giants should include plenty of touches

NFL JERSEYS
It has been more than two weeks since Saquon Barkley returned to practice following a tweaked hamstring. He’s been running and cutting like, well, Saquon Barkley, the No. 2 overall pick with 4.4 speed and the moves to match, ever since. There was a play at New York Giants practice last week where he zigged and zagged, stuck his foot in the ground and changed directions to maneuver past a defender without missing a beat. It seemed like good enough confirmation that there shouldn’t be any problems physically in his first career game Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.china nike nfl jerseys cheap Barkley declared himself ready to handle a full workload in his NFL debut. That should include plenty of touches, but it also won’t completely minimize running backs Wayne…

Cubs rotation enters the stretch run ready to dominate

Cubs rotation enters the stretch run ready to dominate

MLB JERSEYS
The same goes for Cole Hamels, who's up for Pitcher of the Month for August, while Jon Lester is also rounding back into form after a post All-Star-break dip. Think about those names if the Cubs do indeed make it to October: Lester, Hamels, Hendricks. They are talented and playoff-tested. What other NL contender, aside from the Los Angeles Dodgers, can say the same about three of its starting pitchers? "With Jon and Cole, that's where it starts," Hendricks said. "They're never bothered too much. It trickles down to the rest of us young guys." That's funny, coming from Hendricks, who beat Clayton Kershaw to send the Cubs to the 2016 World Series. He has pitched in big game after big game, but he knows his teammates are in a…

Joe Maddon’s circle of trust shrinking as Cubs struggle

Joe Maddon’s circle of trust shrinking as Cubs struggle

MLB JERSEYS
Let's start on the mound, where he's still searching for plus and minus relievers -- those guys who can keep a game close when the Cubs are trailing, and of course those who can hold a lead as well. "We self-destructed, pitching-wise," Maddon said of Tuesday's game. Starter Mike Montgomery didn't have it, allowing the leadoff man to reach base in each of his four innings of work. But he's less of a concern than those bullpen arms that came after him considering Montgomery isn't slated to be a playoff starter. When he got pinch-hit for in the top of the fifth inning, the Brewers were leading only 2-1. Reliever Brandon Kintzler gave up a lead-off double in the bottom of the inning, which led to a run, as he…

Kirk Cousins’ all-or-nothing pursuit kicks off against 49ers

NFL JERSEYS
But this challenge? It's almost unheard of. Joining a team coming off a 13-3 season that views the player tasked to fill the quarterback position as the missing link between this franchise and a Vince Lombardi Trophy derives an unfathomable amount of pressure.nfl stitched jerseys It's an all-or-nothing pursuit. What Cousins does in Minnesota will either set him up for his next earth-shattering contract or be deemed among the biggest mistakes in NFL history. There is no in between. So let's cut to the chase and ask the question we're all wondering: Why would he do this to himself?! "Well, I think you want to go somewhere with expectations, right?" Cousins said on ESPN's NFL Countdown. "I mean, we're here to win and I was looking around and ultimately people…

Any other 37-year-old man with a mop of shockingly bleached hair, dancing wildly late on a Sunday night, shirt off and posing like the Hulk in full "You wouldn't like me when I'm angry" mode, would draw derogatory comments about his "midlife crisis." But Joaquin Sanchez is no ordinary man. No ordinary footballer, either. Somehow, the Real Betis captain is dreams made flesh. Wildly talented at football, uproariously funny, durable given that his club's medics announced last season that he's been born with a privileged physique that has gifted him the body fat, stamina and ability to recuperate of a man 10 years younger.nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap Sunday in the Estadio Benito Villamarin, his back-post header with 10 minutes left against 10-man Sevilla in that city's derbi gave the…

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness said Paris Saint-Germain should sack sporting director Antero Henrique after negotiations between the clubs over transfers grew contentious. Jerome Boateng had been put on the market this summer by Bayern, who were open to offers. However, he will remain with the club as PSG failed to meet the club's price.
