Wade turns back the clock and 76ers in Game 2 Heat victory

Mens Jarrett Allen Jersey Dwyane Wade snuffed out one 76ers’ rally by popping a 16-foot fadeaway with the shot clock ticking down. Wade made a halfhearted attempt at reaching his hand out toward a fallen defender before he scooted on his way.

Wade was up, the Sixers were down and suddenly, a series.

The Heat had to have this one — a brooding Joel Embiid is angling for a comeback.

The Sixers sorely needed Embiid, their All-Star center out with a broken orbital bone, to settle them as they fell in a quick a 16-point hole.

Reds: OF Jesse Winker, who missed three games with shoulder soreness, entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the eighth…. OF Scott Schebler made a rehab start for Triple-A Louisville on Sunday and another on Monday for Double-A Pensacola. He’s been out with a bruised nerve in his right elbow after being hit by a pitch on April 8…. RHP Kevin Shackelford (right forearm strain) made a second rehab appearance for Pensacola on Monday.

Brewers: Placed C Manny Pina on the 10-day DL, retroactive to April 13, with a right calf strain and recalled C Jacob Nottingham from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Nottingham made his major league debut when he entered the game in the seventh…. 1B Eric Thames, who aggravated a muscle injury in his left leg and was removed in the third inning of Sunday’s game, was out of Robinson Cano Authentic Jersey the lineup.

Reds: Sal Romano (0-1, 5.87 ERA) is 0-3 with a 7.24 ERA in three starts against the Brewers, all coming as a rookie last season.

Brewers: Junior Guerra (1-0, 1.69) will make his second start since being recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. He is 1-1 with a 6.35 ERA in four games (three starts) against the Reds.

There was no complaining. They knew the conditions were going to be awful, Cora said.

Boston completed an abbreviated three-game sweep and finished 8-1 on its first homestand of the season. The series was supposed to last four games, but the traditional Patriots’ Day game scheduled for Monday morning at 11:05 a.m. was postponed late Sunday afternoon due to a forecast that calls for heavy rain throughout the day.

The game will be made up May 17, which had been an off day for both teams prior to their next series at Fenway.

It’s the first time the Patriots’ Day game in Boston has been postponed since 1984.

Manny Machado had an RBI double for Baltimore, which has lost five of six.

The embattled quarterback participated in Thursday’s Pro Day at the University of San Diego, where he found an audience — from New York, too.

The Jets and Giants were among the 13 teams to have scouts on hand who saw Johnny Football again throw the football, ESPN reported. Also in attendance were scouts from the Bears, Browns, Chargers, Chiefs, Patriots, Raiders, Titans, Lions, Jaguars, Panthers and Buccaneers.

San Diego reportedly did not have a quarterback available to throw, and Manziel has been training with QB guru George Whitfield, who’s based there. So, the 2014 first-round pick got his chance in front of NFL scouts.

“I really do,’’ Cox said. “The publicity is going to be off the charts, the expectations are going to be off the charts. They’re two grown kids. They’re high class, great makeup, they’ll bond. They scare people.’’

And it is not just Judge and Stanton.

Noted Andruw Jones, former Yankee and a star with the Braves: “That is going to be a tough group to pitch to. They are going to run into a lot of home runs. The guy behind them will do a lot of damage too, that will be Gary Sanchez.’’

Speaking Wednesday on “The Bill Simmons Podcast,” defensive end Michael Bennett, who was traded to the Super Bowl-winning Eagles earlier this month, believes the team began to lose its edge with the brief 2016 retirement of running back Marshawn Lynch.

Bennett’s words echo the thoughts of former teammate Richard Sherman, who said the Seahawks “lost their way a little bit” in terms of evaluating players. The four-time Pro Bowler signed with the 49ers this offseason, while cornerback DeShawn Shead agreed to terms with the Lions.

“I think at the end of the day it just became an issue of devaluing core players, players that are playing at a high level and really being curious about younger players and curious about the unknown,” said Sherman, 29, via ESPN.

“They say, ‘Maybe this guy’s going to be the next guy,’ instead of saying, ‘Hey, you have Hall of Fame talents in your secondary. How about you ride this out.’ It’d be like Pittsburgh saying, ‘Troy Polamalu is great, but let’s figure out what this guy behind him has.’”

Garnett played bogey-free, opening with a 30 on the back nine and building a one-shot lead over Corey Conners of Canada.jets_049

Does Josh Rosen love football?

That question hangs over every team with a need at quarterback right now. They’ve spent months trying to answer it鈥攄igging in on the talented but polarizing UCLA star’s background, mental wiring and character.

And what have they found?

Overall, I think it’s a very unique group in that they all bring something different to the table for an organization, Pennington said. I think when an organization chooses to draft one of these prospects it should be very specific to what they’re looking for within their organization and how they think that player is going to Chase Allen Womens Jersey fit into how they do things on and off the field.

At the Senior Bowl, Pennington got to see Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield and Wyoming’s Josh Allen up close. Mayfield, at 6-foot, and Allen, at 6-foot-5, are two very different quarterbacks. Pennington said both can be successful NFL quarterbacks.

I think the number one goal for Baker is to always remember who he is and how he’s had to work extremely hard to get to where he is, Pennington said. He’s twice been a walk-on in college. Now, he made himself into the Heisman Trophy winner. I think remembering who you are and what got you there and not getting caught up in the entertainment value of the game and how people may treat you now, you have to be careful of that. That’s going to be his biggest challenge.

Little do they know is, you know, they can wear that C all they want to, but in that locker room, they know they run and they talk to. They know who they communicate with. Everybody knows where the real love is at. I’m not throwing anybody under the bus, but that’s the difference between me and them.

Wallace could do the right thing over the next three days, eating kale-infused salads and hitting the gym. Or he could shift into the mode of an everyman hero, darting around town on an epic lost weekend, vacuuming up steaks and whole chickens, drinking everything in sight and gaining up to 49 pounds in the process — and still get Chris Paul Youth jersey paid like a glowing king.

That appeal was denied and the suspension became official in March.

The news of the suspension came just days after a report that a trade to the Oakland Raiders was possibly in the works. Schefter said there are no legs to that report, but NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted Friday there were scuttled trade discussions between the two teams.

Padres: Placed RHP Kirby Yates on the 10-day disabled list with right ankle tendinitis, retroactive to Sunday. LHP Buddy Baumann was recalled from Triple-A El Paso to shore up the bullpen. We were looking at three, four, maybe five days before he felt comfortable going out there again, and coming out here to Colorado, we didn’t want to run into it with a short bullpen, Green said.

Clearly, the Bills are heading in the right direction because of McDermott’s determination to change the organization’s culture alongside general manager Brandon Beane. The duo traded away malcontents and those who didn’t fit its long-term vision, including Marcell Dareus, Sammy Watkins, Ronald Darby and Tyrod Taylor.聽

It’s been really fun. Not too many other words to describe it. This has been a great start, said third baseman Colin Moran, who blasted a grand slam Monday. Looking forward to keeping it going. It’s been a good start, to start 4-0. Try to build on that.
Elite Kids Shea Theodore Jersey
It’s been a bit wild too, with two weather postponements and a day-night doubleheader in Detroit, a late-night arrival home before Monday’s early afternoon home opener, a 13-inning game and two games where Pittsburgh got all its offense in the first inning and then Womens Sidney Crosby Jersey held on to win.

It says a lot about our character, about our fight, said Pirates right-hander Jameson Taillon, who tied a career high with nine strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings in winning Monday’s game.

Golden Tate could get contract extension this summer

At the Super Bowl, wide receiver Golden Tate said that he’d like to start talking to the Lions about a contract extension that would keep him in Detroit beyond the end of the 2018 season.

General Manager Bob Quinn said last week that no talks about a new contract have happened “as of yet,” but his history says that isn’t a sign that a deal is off the table. Quinn has extended the likes of Matthew Stafford and Darius Slay over the summer and said the same could happen with Tate this year.

Weighted on-base average (wOBA) is the primary statistic used in the calculation. Ratings range from 1 to 10, with 10 representing the best possible matchup, statistically speaking, and 1 representing the worst. For example, a 10 is a must-start rating, while a 1 should be avoided (if possible); a 1-2 is poor, 3-4 is fair, 5-6 is average, 7-8 is very good and 9-10 is excellent.

The Jets spent some time at the league meetings last week talking up tight end Jordan Leggett after he missed his entire rookie season with a knee injury, but they aren’t putting all their eggs in that basket after Austin Seferian-Jenkins left for the Jaguars as a free agent.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Jets have claimed tight end Clive Walford off of waivers. Walford was dropped by the Raiders last week.

Michael A. Taylor (R), 32 percent, Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets (LHP Steven Matz): It’s a little surprising that Taylor isn’t on more rosters, especially with Victor Robles getting more seasoning in the minors. With Adam Eaton nursing a sore ankle, Taylor could move up in the order. Granted, Matz has been hurt, but 24 of his 26 homers allowed since 2016 came off right-handed sticks. Howie Kendrick is also in play.

Two months after his on-field chat with Davis, McCallum was back in Las Vegas, sitting in the second row of desks, on the left side of Classroom 220. He was taking an executive development course taught by Bo Bernhard at the UNLV International Gaming Institute.

McCallum and Bernhard had not been formally introduced, and they very nearly weren’t on that day either. The course, designed for senior vice presidents and next-generation CEOs in the gaming industry, had a capacity limit of 30. McCallum was the 30th attendee to sign up.

Bernhard began his lecture by holding up an old, black-and-white picture of his great-great grandfather, a charismatic casino worker in the 1940s, who went by Joe “Kid” Jordan. He explained how his grandfather was very good as his job, but had to worry only about what took place inside whichever casino he was working for at the time.buccaneers_095

Cabrera drives in 3 runs as Tigers beat White Sox 6-1

A sore hip and freezing temperatures weren’t about to keep Miguel Cabrera out of this game. The superstar slugger was back in the lineup, leading the way after leaving the previous game.

Cabrera drove in three runs, Michael Fulmer pitched shutout ball into the sixth inning and the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 6-1 on a bone-chilling Saturday.

Cabrera had a two-run single in the third and RBI groundout in the fifth after leaving Thursday’s game against the White Sox because of tightness in his left hip flexor.

I Jermaine Kearse Jersey have to go out there and play. … It was hard to stay (loose) in the game, but you’ve got to battle when the weather’s like that, he said.
Limited Womens Matthew Stafford Jersey
Cabrera added to the lead in the fifth with a grounder to third that might have been an inning-ending double play had Yolmer Sanchez fielded it cleanly.

The Tigers tacked on two more runs in the sixth. Giolito hit Victor Martinez and James McCann to start the inning, and Machado drove them in with a two-out double to left.

The Tigers optioned reliever Warwick Saupold to Triple-A Toledo to make room for the returning Mike Fiers and will use Daniel Norris out of the bullpen for now.

Fiers will be activated from the 10-day disabled list in time to start Sunday’s game after being sidelined because of a lumbar strain. Manager Ron Gardenhire said he is on board with general manager Al Avila’s decision to keep Norris in a long relief role.

He’s a starter, he’s not a bullpen guy, Gardenhire said. The thing we’re talking about right now is we can give him innings up here.

Norris pitched 3 1/3 innings in relief on Thursday. Saupold threw 3 1/3 innings over four appearances.
Marcus Johansson Kids Jersey
The White Sox optioned right-hander Juan Minaya to Triple-A Charlotte and will make a corresponding before Sunday’s game. The 27-year-old Minaya has appeared in three games, allowing three runs and five walks over one inning.

Yet, when the only sample you have is the extreme streak, it’s hard not to have it color your perception of the player — not only in the present, but also for many weeks to come. It’s very dangerous to let these first impressions linger for too long, lest your opinion of these players cause you to be unable to value them properly going forward and potentially wreck your season as a result.

Matt Olson and Matt Chapman had two hits apiece for the A’s.

Meanwhile, Snead said McVay’s leadership and ability to get players to buy in 鈥?as he did last season while repeatedly preaching We, not I 鈥?fueled his confidence, as did the strength of the Rams’ core players.

Before we bring anyone in, we really try to do our research, explained Snead, in terms of personality and the energy they’re going to bring to the locker room, the chemistry 鈥?because there’s going to have to be a chemistry that has to occur, not on Day 1, but over time, as you prepare for the season. But you actually talk through all of this, and how they’re going to fit, and Authentic Luke Joeckel Jersey each person?鈥?and not just those three 鈥?but there are 50 other players and they’ve got personalities, too.

Vance McDonald Kids Jersey As soon as we get on the field in OTAs, we start working toward a singular goal and that’s when you build the chemistry, said Snead. That singular goal will take 53 different personalities and gives them a common ground that you build towards.

Alex Claudio and Chris Martin combined for three scoreless innings and Keone Kela finished for his first save this season.

The game was played in a mostly empty stadium in front of an announced crowd of 9,157. That was slightly more than the 7,416 for Monday’s game — the fewest to attend an A’s game at the Coliseum since 2003.

Right now we’re not swinging the bats as well as we’re capable of, manager Bob Melvin said. We’re capable of scoring multiple runs and having big innings. We just haven’t done that yet.

We’re two years removed from the monster season (1,400 yards, 14 touchdowns) of Robinson’s career, when he single-handedly convinced people that Blake Bortles was a promising quarterback. As was the case with Bortles, though, it’s fair to wonder whether Robinson benefited from spending much of that year in garbage time. Robinson racked up 556 yards and six touchdowns on drives that began with the Jags having no more than a 20 percent chance of winning; that yardage mark ranked third in the league behind DeAndre Hopkins and Jarvis Landry. The only other receiver with six touchdowns in those situations Teammate Allen Hurns.

The main thing I regret is apologizing, McNair told The Wall Street Journal. I really didn’t have anything to apologize for.

Houston’s star wide receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, skipped practice the Phil McConkey Jersey day after McNair’s comments were published, while offensive lineman Duane Brown was critical of the comments and told reporters that the team had considered a mass walkout in response.

Jon Maletz of the Bozeman Daily Chronicle wrote a truly interesting story about former Giants player Corey Widmer and what playing football did to his body.

It deserves your attention so we are all fully informed about the sport we love so much.

I’m 49 years old, depressed to the Nth degree but have a lot of money…and some people might say it’s still worth it. I just tell them to watch what they wish for, Widmer told Maletz. If someone could’ve explained all of this to me when I was 14, I would’ve given it all back in a heartbeat. I would’ve wished for something else.

Brady posted a league-best passer rating of 103.4 on throws within 14 yards of the line of scrimmage, but on those passes traveling 15 or more yards in the air, his 96.8 rating was only good for 11th. Cooks might have helped open up some of those underneath routes, but the Patriots probably don’t want to throw the ball downfield as much as they did in 2017.

Brandin Cooks will be changing teams for the second time in as many offseasons. How does the move change his fantasy value and which of his former New England teammates will step up in his place

What’s fascinating now, of course, is what the Patriots are suddenly positioned to do. New England now has two first-rounders (Nos. 23 and 31) and two second-rounders (Nos. 43 and 63) to play with in this year’s draft, which is an awful lot of draft capital for Belichick to work with. Belichick has made a career out of trading down and taking advantage of other GM’s overconfidence on draft day, but I think it’s unlikely that the Pats are going to turn these four picks into seven or eight selections.

Worrilow will add competition to an Eagles linebacker group that includes Jordan Hicks, Nigel Bradham, Mychal Kendricks and the recently acquired Corey Nelson. Kendricks has been the subject of trade speculation for the second straight offseason. The Eagles have options should they move him.

Worrilow should also help on special teams, an area of focus for the Eagles. He was a core special-teams player for the Lions last season, playing close to half of the special-teams snaps.

He came to Detroit from the Atlanta Falcons, where he made the team as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware in 2013.
