Falcons coach Dan Quinn wasn't pleased.cheap nike nfl jerseys free shipping "That's part of 'Tell the Truth [Monday],"' Quinn said. "Nobody escapes that. ...

Even worse news could be coming for Yoenis Cespedes

MLB JERSEYS
Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes spoke with reporters at his locker Friday night after appearing in his first major league game in nine weeks.

The news naturally left fans curious about what exactly is plaguing Cespedes' heels and what the realistic expectations can be for him moving forward. In the absence of a distinct diagnosis, the interpretation of Cespedes' brief interview warrants some caution. That said, his words in conjunction with the comments Sunday from Mets assistant general manager John Ricco offer…

Meet Josh Hader, the unlikely face of MLB’s strikeout revolution

MLB JERSEYS
Josh Hader kind of looks like a renegade. His musical taste is renegade-like. He pitches like a renegade, with a style as distinctive as it is effective. Hader might even want people to think he's a renegade, except he has anything but a renegade personality. "Hi, I'm Josh," Hader says to those he meets, reaching out with a friendly hand. It's a courtesy he extends even to sportswriters, who are not really accustomed to being welcomed in that way, at least not in the clubhouse. It's not exactly renegade behavior. No, wholesale nfl jerseys the renegade part of Hader's persona doesn't emerge until he unleashes the ball toward home plate. Then, as he likes to say, he's ready to eat.

Can Stephen Strasburg follow in his own footsteps?

Can Stephen Strasburg follow in his own footsteps?

MLB JERSEYS
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Stephen Strasburg should feel pretty good about himself. Not long after pitchers and catchers reported last month, Dodgers hurler Alex Wood revealed that he was going to start working exclusively from the stretch because that’s what Strasburg did last year. To be clear, Wood is already pretty good at his job. In 2017, the Los Angeles lefty went 16-3 with a 2.72 ERA, made it to the All-Star Game and finished in the top 10 in the National League Cy Young balloting. Still, he feels compelled to take a page out of somebody else’s book. And so he’ll try to follow in Strasburg’s footsteps. The question is, can Stephen Strasburg follow in his own? A year ago, Strasburg surprised everyone when…

Lions had significant interest in Richard Sherman

cheap nfl jerseys
The full slate of teams with genuine interest in cornerback Richard Sherman isn’t known. The Lions, we’re told, were definitely one of them.
