Alex Bregman says failing to repeat will give Astros ‘an edge’ next season

MLB JERSEYS
"To be honest with you, this year's team is better than last year's team, I believe," said third baseman Alex Bregman, who reached base 10 times in the first three games of the series, but went 0-for-9 in Games 4 and 5. "The ball's got to bounce your way in the postseason. It's tough, and we'll learn from it. Everyone in here will have a little bit of an edge to play with next year, a little bit of a chip on their shoulder, knowing that we believe we should have been back-to-back champions." Houston was trying to become the first team since the 2000 New York Yankees to win back-to-back rings. It was a quest that started back in mid-February, when the Astros kicked off their title defense amid…

As they chewed on their free hamburgers at one of the George Webb restaurants in the Milwaukee area on Thursday afternoon, Brewers fans had two things on their mind: extending the National League Championship Series to a decisive Game 7 and making sure Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Manny Machado gets the reception deserving of, as Brewers MVP candidate Christian Yelich called him, a "dirty player." "His antics in Los Angeles are going to lead to a lot of booing," said Brewers fan Gerald Mortensen, from Wausau, Wisconsin. "A lot of booing. He basically tried to injure one of our players."china nike nfl jerseys cheap George Webb restaurants were a hub of activity on Thursday afternoon, as this was the day the chain promised to serve free hamburgers as a result…

Fantasy NBA Daily Notes: Disastrous start for KAT managers

NBA JERSEYS
On Wednesday, the San Antonio Spurs edged the Minnesota Timberwolves 112-108 in both teams' season openers. During the offseason, both the Spurs and the Timberwolves had star players with one year left on their contracts who were unhappy and communicated their desire to be traded. The Spurs made a blockbuster move, trading Kawhi Leonard in a package that brought back another All-Star in DeMar DeRozan as the centerpiece of their return package.cheap nfl jerseys china nike The Timberwolves, on the other hand, reportedly sat on Jimmy Butler's trade request all summer with no apparent intention to honor his request. In recent weeks, they have been dealing with an increasingly vocally unhappy Butler, who skipped almost the entire preseason and reportedly didn't even ride with the team to the game on…

How players like Nikola Jokic can take it to another level this season

NBA JERSEYS
Now? I have children who are old enough to play fantasy hoops on their own. My hair is cropped to a corporately acceptable Morrisseyesque length. I noodle away on the freaking ukulele. And if you squint just right, you can almost forget Jordan 2.0 ever transpired.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale I am rational ... and kind of hate it. But I still encounter that same buzz during the opening week of the NBA season. You know what I'm talking about. The sophomoric, embarrassing palpitation of opening night, when the stats start pouring in. The trip to the nearest dive sports bar to watch the returns like it's election night. The instant validation of having drafted Caris LeVert. The crushing existential drift of having missed out on Jayson Tatum. Then the…

How the Kirk Cousins rejection changed everything for the Jets

How the Kirk Cousins rejection changed everything for the Jets

NFL JERSEYS
Make no mistake, the Jets wanted him badly -- so badly that they raised their initial offer, putting a three-year, $90 million contract on the table -- fully guaranteed. They saw it as a rare opportunity to acquire an established quarterback in his prime. As it turned out, their blockbuster proposal accomplished only one thing: It forced the Vikings to raise their offer from $75 million to $84 million, based on what Cousins says in an online documentary that details his decision-making process. He jumped at the Vikings' revised offer, also fully guaranteed, not even bothering to take a visit to the Jets. His decision forever changed the franchise.cheap nfl jerseys china nike "Cousins or Darnold? Me, personally, I'd take Darnold," said a longtime NFL talent evaluator, speaking on the…

Super-sub Paco Alcacer can’t stop scoring for Borussia Dortmund and Spain

soccer jerseys
Sometimes you don't dare leave the room, dash to the kitchen and grab a drink in case you miss a goal. You're convinced you'll hear the roar the second you're standing there in front of the fridge, rushing back in only to miss the replay, but this isn't one of those times. Not if you're a Real Madrid fan, anyway. Now, if you're a Paco Alcacer fan... well, that's a very different story. Real Madrid have gone six hours and 49 minutes without scoring. Count added time and it's well over seven hours. In other words, you could have popped to the kitchen, got a can, come back and put "Star Wars" on instead, watching from start to finish. You could have then watched "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return…

Buckle up for an epic ALCS as 108-win Red Sox and 103-win Astros collide

MLB JERSEYS
The Red Sox won 108 games, a franchise record for one of the most storied organizations in the sport -- and they're not even favored to win the series. The Astros are the defending champions and won 103 games behind their star-laden lineup and an even deeper pitching staff than last season. It's the first meeting of 100-win teams in a championship series since 1977. It's the first meeting of 103-win (or more) teams in any playoff series since the 1942 World Series.

The rosters are dripping with exciting, talented players -- Mookie Betts is the likely AL MVP, Jose…

MLB JERSEYS
Two games, 23 pitching changes, 7½ hours and 18 innings into the National League Championship Series, it's safe to say the template has been set.

The bottom line is that the series is tied, both in games and runs. After Los Angeles came from behind to win 4-3 on Saturday, both teams have taken a one-run affair. Both teams have scored nine runs.nike nfl jerseys cheap paypal "It's the best of the best," Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen said after earning the save. "These guys are the best team out there right now. We just go out there and…
