Astros beat A’s 6-5 on bizarre play in 11th inning

Alex Bregman agreed when someone called the final play on Tuesday night in Houston a circus. Oakland catcher Jonathan Lucroy described it as a big zoo.
Men's Limited Barry Sanders White Jersey: Platinum #20 NFL Detroit Lions Nike
Both descriptions could work for the wild way this one ended.

Bregman homered twice and his tapper just in front of the plate in the Womens Eric Lindros Jersey 11th inning led to a bizarre sequence that ended the game, as Lucroy’s throwing error handed the Astros a 6-5 victory over the Athletics.

It was a crazy play, said Oakland manager Bob Melvin, who had to watch it from the clubhouse after being ejected for arguing a check swing in the fourth. Crazy way the game ended.

That’s when we were playing dodgeball there for a couple of seconds, Lucroy said. That was just a big mess, a big zoo behind the plate there. Hopefully I never have to see that again. That’s the first time that’s ever happened in my eight years. Hopefully it’s the last time.

Still with plenty of time, though, Lucroy picked up the ball, set his feet with an angle to throw to first base — and fired the ball off the back of Bregman’s helmet as he ran up the line.

The ball ricocheted into foul territory in right field, and Tucker trotted home with the winning run.

However, the Stroman we saw pitch seven effective innings versus Atlanta on Tuesday is eminently capable of further reducing his 5.90 ERA, which was 6.50 entering Tuesday. Stroman induces many ground balls and surpassed 200 innings the previous two seasons, which has value, but we would surely like more whiffs. I cannot claim Stroman as a top-40 starting pitcher, but top 60 makes sense for now, until he shows more consistency. He will move up in my next rankings. Still, there are others with more potential I would prefer to invest in, including Shane Bieber, who I seem to have invested in for just about every one of my teams.

I’d say that I don’t understand why Bieber has been dropped in more than Kevin Hayes Jersey 10 percent of ESPN leagues, but he’s facing the New York Yankees in his final start of the traditional first half, he doesn’t have a rep for being a future Cy Young candidate and, perhaps most importantly, there’s that whole Bieber tie, so this proves that people who play fantasy clearly aren’t Justin Bieber fans. Too late now to say sorry. (Hey, I only promised I wouldn’t make Trevor Story puns.)

Report: Casspi comes to terms with Grizzlies

Eager to add shooting around their new big man duo of Marc Gasol and Jaren Jackson Jr., the Grizzlies have reportedly agreed to contract terms with veteran swingman Omri Casspi. Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski:
Jermaine Kearse Youth Limited Green Jersey: Nike NFL New York Jets Vapor Untouchable Home #10
Free agent forward Omri Casspi has agreed to a one-year deal with the Memphis Grizzlies, league sources tell ESPN.

The 6-foot-8 forward shot 45.5 percent from 3-point range in 53 games with Golden State last season. Memphis would mark the sixth different Western Conference team for which has played.

Earlier in the week, the team announced it would not exercise the option for forward Lance Stephenson.

O’Connell served as the AP’s national college basketball writer since 1987 and was Ryan Allen Jersey a fixture at major events from the Final Four to the Big East Tournament to the Maui Invitational.

For more than 30 years at The Ian Kennedy Jersey Associated Press, Jim O’Connell represented the very best in sports journalism. His tireless and unparalleled coverage of college basketball elevated our entire sport, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said.

We all owe Oc an incredible amount of gratitude for the way he handled himself, the way he covered our game and for the positive impact he had on so many, he said.

Oc covered the Dream Team at the Barcelona Olympics and worked as a desk supervisor, overseeing the entire sports operation for the world’s largest news-gathering organization. In 1982, Oc was the one who pushed the button that told the sports world that tiny Chaminade had beaten No. 1 Virginia and Ralph Sampson in Hawaii, still considered the greatest upset in college basketball history.

Doncic signed with Real Madrid at age 13 and made his debut as a 16-year-old. He teamed with Miami’s Goran Dragic to lead Slovenia to a surprising gold medal at FIBA EuroBasket 2017. His father, Sasa Doncic, played professionally for 15 years.

The Mavericks made the move for Doncic a year after drafting point guard Dennis Smith Jr. with the ninth overall pick, giving Dallas a chance to have one of the NBA’s youngest backcourts depending on where Doncic lands in the rotation. Carlisle said he sees Doncic as a starter.

‘He’s the kind of player that is going to be able to play with virtually anybody, Carlisle said. He just has the skill set and an understanding and a feel for the game. He’s a great shooter, so he creates space for other players, which is really going to help Dennis.

The Mavericks took another guard with the Erik Swoope Jersey 33rd overall pick in the second round, getting Jalen Brunson from two-time NCAA champion Villanova. Dallas also had the 54th overall pick in the second round.

But league executives aren’t so sure the Lakers need to make pre-emptory moves in order to get James to come to LA. One told Sporting News he expects James to sign with the Lakers, even before the team remakes its roster. One report suggested that James has been calling fellow free agents to determine their intentions and figure out which ones might join DJ Moore Authentic Jersey him should he head to the Lakers.

That’s the sense you get with him and his people, the GM said. They’re doing enough research to suggest that he’s going to be willing to take that plunge and let the roster come together. It’s what happened in Cleveland four years ago.

Chris Paul, Rockets: He’s expecting a max deal after opting into the final year of his last contract to facilitate a trade. The Rockets will give it to him.

Rajon Rondo, Pelicans: There is not much depth among free-agent point guards. Rondo has been with five teams in the last four years, but he showed his worth in the playoffs (10.3 points, 12.2 assists). New Orleans needs to keep him.

Isaiah Thomas, Lakers: Thomas has declared his hip to be 100 percent, but medical staffs across the league will want a look at some MRIs to determine that. His dreams of a max contract are long gone, and now he’d be lucky to get the midlevel exception.

Elfrid Payton*, Suns: Payton’s numbers were solid last year — 12.7 points, 6.2 points and 4.3 rebounds with Orlando and Phoenix — but he is a poor shooter and a low-end starter. The Suns will likely keep him on a low-cost deal if no other decent Brett Pesce Youth Jersey offers emerge.

David Johnson’s Talks With Kirby Wilson

I don’t want to get too excited, but David Johnson looked outstanding, coach Steve Wilks said after the team’s initial OTA this week.
Youth Arian Foster Limited Olive Nike Jersey: NFL Houston Texans #23 2017 Salute to Service
That’s different from being a finished product, however. Wilson stresses the little things, Johnson said, and Wilson talks first not about Johnson’s abilities but his attitude and approach to fundamentals.

I’m am sure there are things he learned from (Mitchell and Kitchens) that he liked and helped him grow, Wilson said. I’m the next one, and my goal is to take him to where he wants to be, which is the best in the National Football League.

As the season wound down last year, more responsibility was put on Deone Bucannon as a signal-caller on defense, and now, that’s his likely job. Make no mistake, Bucannon is a linebacker all the way now, in a defense in many Antti Niemi Jersey ways built for a guy like him. He has grabbed the role, become a vocal leader, and has embraced his spot. As he goes into an important contract year, Bucannon will have the chance to make a splash.

(It’d be) more of a team setting, really trying to give him different looks from a blitz standpoint, also two-minute (offense), Wilks said of what Bradford could get in minicamp. Today was a good day in terms of an operational day for us, and he didn’t get any of that work. Next week, those are some of the things we are trying to get him in the mix.

Wilks said they’ve varied what kind of work Bradford has taken part in thus far. The plan to work Bradford in has felt a little like what the Cardinals did in 2015 when they did something similar for Carson Palmer, who was coming off his 2014 ACL tear.

Palmer also was ramped up as the Cardinals reached minicamp. Wilks said he feels pretty good with where Bradford is health-wise.

I think he’s on schedule, Wilks said. He feels real confident right now with how his knee feels. Again, we are doing a great job in-house with the trainers and strength and conditioning Nevin Lawson Youth Jersey coach and getting him where he needs to be. I think from a mental standpoint, he’s feeling pretty good.

Some gullible drafters are taking the bait, optimistically buying into the notion the polarizing passer will regain his top-five form. Anything is possible, Mike Remmers Jersey but at his 127.7 ADP (QB16) and given the remarkable depth at the position, I’m passing. Around the same point in drafts, the risk/reward of Patrick Mahomes (127.6 ADP), Jared Goff (121.9) and Marcus Mariota (126.0) is more appealing.

But none of us know how good Luck will be after nearly a year and a half away from the game. From a fantasy perspective, it doesn’t matter.

As if they didn’t have enough trouble on the left side of the infield, rookie shortstop/third baseman J.P. Crawford just suffered a broken hand on a hit by pitch.

The one question that remains is whether the Phillies are a real contender this year, and thus, whether they’d be willing to surrender real pieces for a rental. In the winter, they will be all-in.

Brady’s comment matches what he’s said previously: He’d like to play until he’s 45 years old.

Perhaps Brady’s Instagram comment is his way of re-guiding the conversation after talk of his eventual retirement has taken on a different tone this offseason.

Heck, maybe some social media manager went rogue and today Brady is dealing with fallout (this will surely be the script for a NCIS: Social Media in the future).
