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…

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

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…

Gronk? Kelce? Right now, NFL’s top tight end may be Zach Ertz

cheap nfl jerseys
It was Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz versus New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins, and it was no contest. With the Eagles facing a first-and-goal at the 10-yard line late in the second quarter of Thursday's game, Ertz sold an inside route to get Jenkins' body turned and then broke for the corner in one fluid, defender-shedding motion. Suddenly wide open, Ertz easily secured the touchdown pass from quarterback Carson Wentz and then celebrated by pointing to the back of his own jersey once, and then again, with authority.nike nfl jerseys cheap china The name on that jersey doesn't get as much attention as others at the position: Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce. But Ertz is making a case for why he deserves top billing. Through six weeks, he…

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…

Gronk 2.0? Travis Kelce doesn’t see it that way

NFL JERSEYS
Travis Kelce likes to watch video of great NFL tight ends, past and present, to see what he might learn from their games. He has seen much of Tony Gonzalez, his predecessor as a great tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs. And, yes, he has watched plenty of the contemporary tight end with whom he has often compared, Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots. Kelce said he doesn't see the similarities, other than both are moved around the formation as their respective coaches search for the best matchups for 260-pound players who are difficult to cover.nfl jersey cheap wholesale "When I get the ball in my hands I'm a different type of athlete," Kelce said in 2017 on the Dan Patrick radio show.

Le’Veon Bell, James Conner duo ‘can be very effective’

Le’Veon Bell, James Conner duo ‘can be very effective’

NFL JERSEYS
In an inconsistent season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have consistently praised James Conner. Several teammates publicly reveled in Conner’s 185-yard performance Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons in light of headlines swirling around Le’Veon Bell’s eventual arrival. Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva referred to Conner as an “unbelievable human being” whom he’s proud to call a teammate. But the Steelers will get a top-10 NFL player in their lineup soon enough, and he happens to play running back. Bell is an elite player regardless of what Conner does. Conner's showing that he can get hot with two big performances through five weeks only deepens the intrigue around the Steelers running back position for Week 8 against Cleveland, Bell’s targeted return game. On the surface, there isn't much downside here. Bell can only help,…
