How the Angels can convince Mike Trout to stay

MLB JERSEYS
The Angels sit two games below .500 and 19 games out of first place heading into the season's final three weeks. They will miss the playoffs for the eighth time in the past nine years, while burdened with a top-heavy payroll, an underwhelming farm system and one major source of anxiety: Trout's expiring contract. The six-year, $144.5 million extension that Trout signed in the spring of 2014 will come to an end in the fall of 2020, which basically gives Eppler two offseasons.cheap nfl jerseys china nike Two offseasons to turn the Angels into a team that can consistently contend. Two offseasons to convince the greatest player of his generation that he should not leave. Trout has produced 62.8 wins above replacement since 2012 -- nearly double the output of…

Cubs battling more than Brewers during tiring stretch run

MLB JERSEYS
They can blame the weather, an awful late-season schedule and myriad other non-baseball related factors, but if the Chicago Cubs want to return to the playoffs for a fourth consecutive year, they'll have to rise above it all and hold off a hard-charging Milwaukee Brewers team. "This is a battle for sure," first baseman Anthony Rizzo said Tuesday before the Cubs' 3-0 win over the Brewers. "We have 19 games to right the ship. The biggest one is today."nfl nike jersey cheap Tuesday's victory kept Milwaukee at bay -- and in second place -- with just 18 games remaining.

Storm dominate Mystics, Elena Delle Donne in WNBA Finals Game 1 win

Storm dominate Mystics, Elena Delle Donne in WNBA Finals Game 1 win

NBA JERSEYS
The first minute of Game 1 of the WNBA Finals offered an early indication of what kind of night it would be for 2015 MVP Elena Delle Donne and the Washington Mystics, who lost 89-76 to the host Seattle Storm on Friday night. Isolated against Seattle's Natasha Howard at the top of the key, Delle Donne pulled up for a 19-foot shot that Howard altered and came up well short of the basket. Delle Donne would finish 4-for-11 from the field, scoring 10 points -- her lowest output in a playoff game since scoring two points in 10 minutes in Game 1 of the 2014 Finals against Phoenix while with the Chicago Sky. Back then, Delle Donne was dealing with a sore lower back that forced her off the court.…

Remade Rams defense starts slow, then slams the door

Remade Rams defense starts slow, then slams the door

NFL JERSEYS
It was the first series of the season opener and a long-anticipated look at the Los Angeles Rams' new star-studded defense. The result was hardly what was expected. Under a pile of blue-and-white jerseys, Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch ran up the middle, dragging a pile that included defensive linemen Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh and Michael Brockers, among others, across the goal line for a 10-yard touchdown.china nike nfl jerseys cheap If anything was apparent Monday in the Rams' 33-13 victory over the Raiders at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, it was that the made-over defense needed at least a half to come together and knock off any rust. And there's still plenty of room for improvement. "That's just the first game jitters man," cornerback Marcus Peters said after the game.…

Chris Thompson returns as lightning to Adrian Peterson’s thunder

NFL JERSEYS
A number of plays all announced the same thing Sunday: Chris Thompson is back. There was the burst he displayed on an outside zone run out of a run-pass option look. There was the dash to the outside to beat a defender for the first down. There was the way he won on a route that resulted in a touchdown catch.nike nfl jerseys cheap china They were the sort of plays Washington missed after he was lost for the season in 2017 after breaking his leg. The Redskins want to get Thompson 12 to 15 touches per game, knowing he could break off a long one at any time. He’ll get his next chance vs. Indianapolis on Sunday; the Colts allowed Cincinnati’s Joe Mixon 95 yards on 17 rushing attempts…

Does Marcus Rashford have a future at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho?

Does Marcus Rashford have a future at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho?

soccer jerseys
Early in England's UEFA Nations League match against Spain, Marcus Rashford gave a taste of what might yet be. The forward strolled onto a sublime through-ball from Luke Shaw, his Manchester United teammate, and finished with a single, supremely confident touch. His movement and self-assurance were of the highest quality.cheap nfl nike jerseys china For some, there may have been a reminder of his breakthrough season for United, when he played as an orthodox centre-forward and briefly looked as though he would play there for most of his career. Subsequent months and years have seen him out on the wing and -- at times -- out on a limb. The question is whether he can soon expect a central berth alongside Romelu Lukaku, and whether he can flourish there. It…

Case Keenum shows why the Broncos went out to get him

NFL JERSEYS
When the Denver Broncos surveyed the free-agency landscape this offseason in search of a quarterback, they wanted a player who could dig himself, and the team, out of trouble. In his first regular-season start with the Broncos, new quarterback Case Keenum did just that. "He just kept playing," said Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. "He kept going out there and moving the offense and we got the win, and ... I expect him to play way better."cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal In a 27-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Keenum finished a robust 25-of-39 passing for 329 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions.

‘Fitz-magic’ might help Bucs survive brutal opening stretch

‘Fitz-magic’ might help Bucs survive brutal opening stretch

NFL JERSEYS
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers practiced all summer with Ryan Fitzpatrick as their starting quarterback and offensive coordinator Todd Monken calling plays. The plan was to give Fitzpatrick as many first-team reps as they could to prepare for starter Jameis Winston's three-game suspension, and for coach Dirk Koetter, who has always called plays, to have a second set of eyes with Monken while allowing him to gain experience. Except Monken wasn't supposed to call plays during the regular season, until Koetter quietly made the decision this week to hand over the reins. And the 35-year-old Fitzpatrick, making his 120th start Sunday for his seventh different team, wasn't supposed to be this good. When most assumed it would take a Herculean effort from the defense to top Drew Brees & Co., Fitzpatrick…

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…
