Cubs’ supporting cast picking up slumping stars

Cubs’ supporting cast picking up slumping stars

MLB JERSEYS
So how did the Chicago Cubs right their ship with a series sweep of the Miami Marlins this week despite stars Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo going 2-for-23 over the course of three games? It starts with pitching -- 22 scoreless innings to finish the series helps -- but that doesn't explain 17 runs scored without one being driven in by either of the team's two biggest sluggers. For that, you would have to dig deep -- as in way down the lineup. The Cubs boast the highest batting average in baseball (.310) from their 5-8 hitters. Those aren't household names, but Descalso is one of those guys who leaves his mark no matter what team he's on. Nearly forgotten during the winter of no spending by the Cubs, Descalso…

I never hid the fact that I wanted to stay in Oakland because that is how I feel and I'm glad that I can continue to call the city of…

Hall of Famer Gregg remembered as gentle giant

Hall of Famer Gregg remembered as gentle giant

NFL JERSEYS
Forrest Gregg was remembered Wednesday as a gentle giant who was as comfortable playing Barbie dolls with his daughter as he was playing football for Vince Lombardi. Gregg died Friday at age 85 after a long fight with Parkinson's, a disease his neurologist and family believe might have been triggered by the countless concussions he sustained while playing football in the 1950s at SMU and in the NFL from 1956 to 1971. After playing 14 seasons in Green Bay, Gregg won one more Super Bowl in 1971 with the Dallas Cowboys. He went on to win 75 games in 11 seasons as a head coach in Cleveland, Cincinnati and Green Bay, and he took the Bengals to their first Super Bowl during the 1981 season, when they lost 26-21 to…

Eagles’ Wentz says stress fracture is still healing

NFL JERSEYS
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is not yet fully recovered from the stress fracture in his back that cut short his 2018 season. "It's still getting there. It's still getting there," Wentz said Monday at the start of the team's offseason training program, when asked if the bone is fully healed. "Some of this stuff just takes time, but that's not really the main concern. It's just kind of how I feel, and I feel pretty good with where I'm at." Wentz first appeared on the team's injury report in October. The stress fracture was discovered in December through a scan. At the time, coach Doug Pederson said it was an injury that could take about three months to heal. It has been four months since those comments.cheap nfl jerseys china…

Manchester City are boring their way to the title as Premier League also-rans struggle to keep up

soccer jerseys
If Manchester City retain the Premier League title, the signs are they will have done it the boring way. Sunday's win at Crystal Palace -- beyond a nine-minute spell after Luka Milivojevic's clever free kick to make it 2-1 -- was not a contest. And that has become a consistent theme. If you seek drama and tension, or perhaps simply to be moved by football, City's Premier League games are probably not for you. They are exhibitions of control and it is difficult, when they perform with this kind of clarity, to see them falling short in the title race.nike nfl jerseys cheap china For its vast majority, Sunday's 3-1 win was almost identical to City's two previous away trips in the league, against Fulham and Bournemouth. Both of those…

Maddon: Take check swing calls away from umps

Maddon: Take check swing calls away from umps

MLB JERSEYS
The check-swing call in baseball has always been one of the most difficult for umpires to make. After a late Chicago Cubs rally was thwarted on a strike-three, check-swing call on Kyle Schwarber, Chicago manager Joe Maddon suggested that maybe it shouldn't be the umpires making the call. "You see the check swing where the hands [don't move] -- to me that's not a swing," Maddon said. "It's what you do with the barrel [of the bat]. Everybody's worried about an electronic strike zone. I want an electronic method to control a check swing. "That would be much more interesting. I would prefer that. Let the umpires call that game like they always do, but let's figure out a way to control check swings. I've got ideas on that, too."cheap…

This unorthodox way to guard James Harden is either genius or a fluke

NBA JERSEYS
James Harden had just finished one of the least efficient performances of his historic season when he was asked how much the Milwaukee Bucks' unique defensive scheme had to do with his off night. "None," Harden said, scoffing at the suggestion that the Bucks might have created a blueprint for defending the NBA's most unstoppable offensive weapon.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale Harden explained that shots simply didn't go in, refusing to give credit to the NBA's top-ranked defense for holding him to 9-of-26 shooting from the floor during the Houston Rockets' 108-94 loss on the road. The Bucks did an excellent job of executing their game plan, with point guard Eric Bledsoe going to great extremes to force Harden to drive right, straddling his left hip instead of playing in…

NFL draft’s easiest choice: picking a pass-rusher

NFL draft’s easiest choice: picking a pass-rusher

NFL JERSEYS
"If you sack the quarterback in college, you're going to get sacks in the National Football League," said Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller, who has 98 regular-season sacks in his eight seasons, six seasons with at least 11 sacks, and a Super Bowl MVP award. "That doesn't mean you don't have to work on your game, find some counters [moves] and study, but I think the sack guys in college usually are sack guys in the pros if they put in the work." This year's draft board is stocked with coveted pass-rushers, including Ohio State's Nick Bosa, the highest-graded player in most places. "You have quarterbacks that may sit in the pocket a little longer. ... [You have] bigger, more athletic tackles, you face tremendous players every week," Bosa said.…

Rams planned for future, now hope midround 2018 picks can produce

NFL JERSEYS
The evidence was rarely seen on the field. Yes, the Los Angeles Rams participated in the 2018 NFL draft. But no, none of the 11 players selected played a significant role in their Super Bowl run. In fact, the Rams' first-year players last season participated in the fewest offensive and defensive snaps among rookies across the league.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china But as preparations begin for the 2019 season, with a roster capable of another deep playoff run, several of the Rams' lesser-known prospects drafted a year ago will need to step up. Some, perhaps, in a major way. "You try to stay ahead of the curve," Rams general manager Les Snead said, as he reflected on the 2018 draft. With five months, and still several transactions to be…
