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. The teams square off for the rubber game of their series -- and the season finale between them -- on Wednesday. The series has been filled with drama and close games,…

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

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…

‘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…

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

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…
