In the video above, Angels star Shohei Ohtani blasts home run after home run during his first batting practice at Yankee Stadium before Friday’s game.

Elite Youth Myles White Jersey Ohtani was slated to hit fifth and DH against the team that wanted him so badly in the offseason.

On Friday, James will take the floor with his future hanging in the air. His second stint with the Cavs could end this summer if he opts out of his $35.6 million contract for next season and leaves again as a free agent, a decision he can delay again with a win.

But before he picks home or Philadelphia or Los Angeles or anywhere else, he’s got at least one more Wesley Walker Youth jersey game in Cleveland.

The NFL Players Association聽issued聽a statement after Goodell announced the policy, noting the league didn’t consult with the union on the decision and that it will challenge any aspect of [the policy] that is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement.

Keenum will certainly be better than Huey, Dewey and Louie were last year. (And if you are now picturing John Elway as Scrooge McDuck, my work here is done.) But that’s not the goal the Broncos should be shooting for. The real question is whether Keenum will bring anything more to the Broncos than firm handshakes in the locker room and a commanding voice in the huddle. No one seems to want to ask or answer that right now.

If it turns out the Broncos paid $36 million for a guy who rode a hot streak and an ideal situation to a career year, then backed him up with no one but Harold and Kumar, they will have set themselves back years.

Redskins schedule 2018: Washington to host string of playoff contenders

The Redskins’ 2018 schedule is loaded with intriguing matchups against teams from the NFC South and AFC South in addition to Washington’s NFC East rivals.

Bottom line: Washington appears to have a middle-of-the-road schedule. It could be tougher, and it could be easier. As if the competition in the NFC East wasn’t strong enough, the division being matched up against the NFC South, which some consider the best division in football, makes life harder on Washington and its rivals. The Redskins could see a gloomy projection for their own season and think about what the Eagles were able to accomplish last year given a similar outlook. The problem is Washington doesn’t have the same level of talent on its roster. Record prediction: 6-10

Beyond Kendricks, the Vikings already have extended defensive end Everson Griffen, cornerback Xavier Rhodes, defensive tackle Linval Joseph, and receiver Adam Thielen. Executive V.P. of football operations Rob Brzezinski has been negotiating the deals for more than 20 years, and he’ll be trying to continue to keep the current team together.

“I would be lying if I said you don’t feel some pressure, because you want to be able to keep this team together and keep all your best players,” Brzezinski recently told Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

G.M. Rick Spielman realizes that the Vikings may not be able to accomplish the effort to extend Barr, Diggs, and Hunter.

“We’re still going to try,” Spielman said. “Is it going to be easy? No.”

Seahawks sign Dadi Nicolas Jersey

Dadi Nicolas isn’t going to Cleveland. He’s instead found a new home in Seattle.
Elite Sean Monahan Jersey Youth Elite Chad Kelly White Jersey: Vapor Untouchable Road #6 NFL Denver Broncos Nike
The Seahawks signed the linebacker Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

Nicolas appeared headed to Cleveland two weeks ago when the Browns and Chiefs agreed to a player-for-player deal with tight end Randall Telfer headed to Kansas City. But the teams called off the trade and released the players.

Elite Johan Larsson Jersey The Chiefs made Nicolas a sixth-round pick out of Virginia Tech in 2016. He played 11 games as a rookie, though he saw only 28 snaps on defense and 45 on special teams.

Ben Arledge, Insider NHL editor: While I love Chris’ Brayden Point selection and considered John Carlson from the other bench, I’m going with Yanni Gourde. The rookie potted 25 goals this season and eclipsed 60 points, yet he has just two goals in the playoffs, and none in the conference finals. The 26-year-old is due. Skating on a wing with Point and Tyler Johnson, and logging minutes with the second power-play unit, Gourde will be afforded plenty of opportunities to make a difference in Game 7.

Gourde has a nose for the net and a good shot, and I’ll look for him to play a sneaky big part in what I believe will be a Tampa Bay victory.

One of Lamoriello’s most pressing issues is Tavares, who can become an unrestricted free agent July 1. The 27-year-old forward just finished a $33 million, six-year contract. He had 37 goals and 47 assists this season, finishing a goal and an assist shy of the career highs he set in 2014-15.

Lamoriello had nothing but praise for the star center, who will receive a lucrative long-term deal this summer from the Islanders or another team.

He’s one of the elite players, a gentleman both on and off the ice and he’s just a quality individual as well as a quality player, Lamoriello said.

Because the Islanders missed the playoffs the past two years, hiring Lamoriello is at the very least a sign to Tavares of ownership’s willingness to make improvements. Lamoriello led the Devils’ hockey operations from 1987 to 2015, reaching the Stanley Cup Final five times and winning in 1995, 2000 and 2003, and is well-respected for his management expertise.

That will be tested in his third stint running a front office, this time for a team that has had his son, Chris Lamoriello, as assistant GM since 2016. He takes over just a month before the draft and five weeks before the clock runs out on re-signing Tavares Reggie Sanders Youth jersey before he hits the open market, giving him tight deadlines to bring the Islanders back where they were in the 1980s when they won the Cup four times.

Jets trade Christian Hackenberg Jersey to Raiders for conditional draft pick

Elite Youth Freddie Hamilton Jersey
Seth Jones Jersey Quarterback Christian Hackenberg, who never entered a game in two seasons with the New York Jets, was traded Tuesday to the Oakland Raiders, Authentic Joffrey Lupul Jersey ending an odd and disappointing tenure that leaves a wake of questions.
Authentic White Reebok NHL Away Women's Jersey: Customized Colorado Avalanche
The Jets will receive a 2019 conditional seventh-round pick for Hackenberg, who will be remembered as one of the biggest second-round disappointments in recent NFL history.

I like the talent he had, Bowles said of Hackenberg. Obviously, it didn’t cultivate here. Sometimes it takes a team or two or three to find your spot. Hopefully, he does that.

Hours before the trade, Hackenberg was upbeat about his NFL future, saying, All I know is, I’m 23 and I’ve got a lot of ball in front of me. Hell, my career hasn’t even started yet. I’m excited about what the future holds.

Houston led by as many as 19 in the first half and was up 64-50 at halftime. The Warriors cut it to 74-64 with five quick points from Durant, but the Rockets opened it back up to 89-72 when Gordon made an off-balance layup before crashing to the court while being fouled and made the free throw.

The Rockets were up by 16 to start the fourth quarter but Golden State got within 98-86 with about 10 minutes left. Curry had five points in that span, including his first 3 after missing his first six attempts of the night.

Few storylines in baseball have been as compelling, dynamic and promising for as long as the overlapping Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper storylines. Strasburg was perhaps the most hyped amateur pitching prospect of all time. Harper, from his midteens, was perhaps the most hyped hitting prospect of all time. Then they were teammates! Wow! In the years since, each has been, at times, among the most dominant baseball players in the world. Harper had, in 2015, the best offensive season since Barry Bonds; Strasburg had, in 2017, a 0.70 ERA in the second half, including his two postseason starts.

If they can do it without Hanley Ramirez’s 2019 option vesting, with Price pitching well enough to opt out of or be worth the rest of his contract, and with Devers or Benintendi getting MVP votes, they’d be in position to go toe-to-toe with the Yankees in 2019.

Vrabel is going to love coaching first-round pick Rashaan Evans. In fact, he’s already praised general manager Jon Robinson for trading up to grab him.

Jon did a great job of going up and getting a great player that we wanted,聽said Vrabel, per Joe Rexrode of the Tennessean.

Evans is a true sideline-to-sideline playmaker. He is a tad thin (6’3, 232 lbs), but he is fast, agile and instinctive. The Alabama product also has the short-area quickness, bend and field awareness to pressure the quarterback. Last season, he produced 35 tackles, 13.5 tackles for a loss and six sacks.

Former emergency room nurse Nancy Nadeau, 54, Authentic Joel Bitonio Jersey one of the prosecution’s witnesses, declined comment on the case citing HIPAA rules. But she did say that generally, when sex assault victims go to the length of going to a hospital for testing and police are involved, that raises suspicion that something happened.

Limited Mens Maxx Williams Jersey Morris, starting in place of Aron Baynes, backed up his boast that he could cover James better than anyone except Kawhi Leonard and helped pester James into seven of Cleveland’s nine turnovers. (James had eight in the entire four-game, second-round sweep of the Raptors.)

Horford made his first seven shots of the game and scored 10, including eight straight, during the 17-0 run that turned a three-point deficit into a 21-7 lead. After James wiggled his way to a layup — Cleveland’s first points in 4 minutes, 43 seconds — Boston ran off eight more points in a row; Brown had six of them, and he finished the quarter with 13 points and five rebounds.

Cleveland scored seven straight points early in the third and finished the quarter with six in a row to make it 78-64. But Boston made the first three baskets in the fourth and, after running off nine in a row to make it 96-68 with 7:09 left, the Cavs conceded.

Yankees Double-A scouting reports

Gregorius is hitless in his last 28 at-bats.

He was hitting.333 with 10 home runs on May Since then, he’s seen his batting average drop to.27Over that span, his OPS has also fallen from 1.130 to.94

Gregorius was named the American League Player of the Month in April.

Especially when you have Aaron (Judge) hitting second. It kind of allows for traffic because how much he’s been getting on base and as many good at-bats he gives us at the bottom. So, right now, the way our lineup sets up, no immediate plans to move him up, but I’m always kicking around stuff.

NBA Playoffs 2018: What time, TV, channel is Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Boston Celtics Game 1 (5/13/18)?

We’re pushing everybody to start, Wilks explained. I’ve stated this several times: Sam Bradford is our starter. We gotta go out there with 11 guys and Sam’s going to be the first guy out there. But everybody’s fighting for a position, so I’m not going to hold [Rosen] back at all.

I want guys competing, I want guys fighting for a starting job. Whoever ends up winning the position, that’s who’s going to end up playing.

Although Bradford’s reputation has taken a hit via the incessant injury bug, he’s been one of the most accurate — and overlooked — quarterbacks in the league as an intermittent starter.

The Cardinals brought Bradford in to direct the offense, Wilks recently told The Adam Schefter Podcast, and he believes the former Vikings quarterback is one of the best in the business right now.

It’s natural for the head coach to stand behind the veteran in the draft’s aftermath. We see it every offseason. Over the past 10 years, though, 20 of 27 first-round quarterbacks have started at least eight games in their rookie seasons.

Jon Gruden: Martavis Bryant Jersey brings ‘different dynamic’

Jon Gruden’s Raiders spent the offseason importing a wave of new receiving threats for Derek Carr, signing Jordy Nelson and trading for Martavis Bryant and Ryan Switzer during the draft.
Nike Youth Jabrill Peppers Limited Olive/USA Flag Jersey - Cleveland Browns NFL #22 2017 Salute to Service
On the high side of the potential bell curve, combining Nelson’s red-zone acumen and Bryant’s field-stretching ability to Amari Cooper ‘s do-everything skillset could provide Oakland the foundation of a stellar receiving corps.

The combination of Cooper, Nelson, and Bryant looks good on paper, if each lives up to his potential. If Cooper bounces back from a disappointing season, if Nelson finds young legs now that he’s back with a Pro Bowl QB, and if Bryant lives up to his natural ability, the Raiders would boast a corps that complements each other and could win at every level. Like most of Oakland’s composition in Gruden’s first spring, however, that’s a ton of ifs to overcome as we sit in mid-May.

The 32-year-old is apparently holding out hope he can still play. Avril told Bob Papa and Ed McCaffrey on SiriusXM NFL Radio’s The Womens Wilbert Montgomery Jersey Opening Drive he’s been contacted by a few teams regarding his availability.
James Patrick Kids Jersey
The question is whether Avril would get cleared by doctors following a career-threatening neck injury.

But for me it’s all about just seeing what the doc says, Avril said. I’m not really too concerned about where I might end up or anything like that. I actually just told everybody that I’m going to be working at a radio station, KJR 950 in Seattle. We’ll see how it shakes out, though.
Jonnu Smith Kids Jersey
The Seahawks released Avril with a failed physical designation. While he hasn’t formally announced plans to retire — at least until he hears from doctors again — the 10-year NFL veteran is talking like a man leaning towards walking away.

The Blazers are competitive in the second round of the playoffs. Winning a series wouldn’t be new for the Blazers in the Lillard-McCollum era, though they benefited from injuries to Blake Griffin and Chris Paul during their first-round win over the Clippers two years ago. To justify the luxury-tax bill that re-signing Nurkic and backup center Ed Davis would likely require, Portland could use a couple wins in a matchup with one of the West’s powers.

Anthony Davis vs. Jusuf Nurkic. Although Jrue Holiday vs. Damian Lillard might be more compelling in terms of overall talent, the center matchup in this series will probably be more important to the outcome. Portland’s defensive scheme is centered around keeping Nurkic in the paint to defend the rim; Donald Trump Authentic Jersey according to Second Spectrum data, Nurkic defended 8.9 shots per 100 possessions inside the restricted area, third most among starting centers. Davis’ ability to pull Nurkic away from the basket, either in isolations or in pick-and-pop plays, will provide other Pelicans an opportunity to penetrate.

Morgan will be the director of player personnel in Buffalo. He’ll work under General Manager Brandon Beane, who was in Carolina when Morgan was a player. Beane said in a statement that Morgan’s work ethic as a player and in the Seahawks front office convinced him he was the right man for the job.
Limited Mens Reggie Miller Jersey
First thing we were looking for was culture fit, Beane said. I was in Carolina when we drafted Dan as a player and he would be a ‘Bills blue’ as our kind of guy.

Morgan will fill a role occupied by Brian Gaine last season. Gaine moved on to become the Texans General Manager this offseason.

Limited Mens Leonard Floyd Jersey Detroit Tigers — The men from Motown have played the most contests under 40 and under 50 degrees at game time. The biggest takeaway from the cold-weather data is home runs are tempered in the cold, so don’t sweat only one homer from Castellanos. In fact, be encouraged he has slugged six doubles with a pair of triples. Most interesting is Castellanos’ already increasing fly ball rate continues to climb while his hard-hit rate is an astounding 52 percent. That will regress, but for his career, Castellanos carries a well above-average hard-hit clip so expect his lofted balls to begin clearing the fences as the mercury rises.

Royce Freeman Jersey not concerned about college workload, believes it proves his durability

Running backs have almost always been viewed Chris Ivory Womens Jersey as a diminishing property in the NFL. It became commonplace to expect running backs to fall off a cliff from a production standpoint once they reached 30 years old. Even more recently, the amount of investment in running backs has lessened as productive options seem to be relatively cheap and plentiful.

Perhaps more importantly, what does he deserve?

Regardless of what he wants or what he deserves, the franchise-tag dance puts him at $119.18 million over three years 鈥?an average of nearly $40 million per year. If the Seahawks don鈥檛 tag him for a third time, Wilson would hit the open market (a la Cousins) in 2022, at the age of 33.

As long as Wilson stays healthy and effective, a willingness to wait gives him more leverage than any quarterback will have ever had. Which means that he鈥檒l either get a record-setting deal at some point to stay in Seattle. Or he鈥檒l get that record-setting deal as an unrestricted free agent.

Kenny Vaccaro Mens Jersey Neither has a job at the moment, and it鈥檚 hard to not connect that to their political stances. Reid was one of the first players to kneel alongside Kaepernick during the national anthem, when the quarterback began protesting police brutality and racial inequality. Both players worked through the ends of their contracts, and haven鈥檛 found another one.

They鈥檙e also both pursuing collusion claims, which gained steam after Reid visited the Bengals but was reportedly asked by owner Mike Brown whether he intended to continue kneeling.

So the two worked out together, with Reid joking: I should have been a receiver.

Otherwise, neither player had much to offer, which gives them something in common with NFL teams who have job opportunities.

Jerome Brown Mens Jersey The Penguins lost that night, won the Cup the next game, won it again last year, and seemed destined to make it three in a row, misguided 3LIEVE motto notwithstanding. The push ended last night against the Capitals, and so I invited my Internet son (a/k/a PFT Commenter of Barstool Sports鈥?Pardon My Take) to join PFT Live to bask in the glow of a moment he鈥檒l never forget.

The Seahawks probably could have predicted Bosworth in the NFL would be known more for his off-field antics than his on-field performance.

Pickens was projected to be a star defensive back due to his athleticism, and the Falcons took the bait. He was, to put it frankly, terrible in the NFL. Pickens was traded to the Packers during the 1993 season, a little more than two years after the Falcons drafted him. In just eight starts in Atlanta (27 games) through a little more than two seasons, he managed two interceptions and one sack.

He was decent on the field — save for the infamous Bo Jackson encounter — until a bad shoulder forced his retirement during his third NFL season. Bosworth started just 24 games for Seattle.

Minkah Fitzpatrick won’t go in the top five, but he will have plenty of options in the top half of the draft. While some teams consider him an impactful nickel corner, other teams like the Bears, Raiders, Dolphins and Cardinals view him as an impact outside cornerback/safety. The Cardinals likely will consider Fitzpatrick, Iowa’s Josh Jackson or a quarterback with the 15th overall pick.

Iowa corner Josh Jackson is quietly coveted by NFL teams. He, Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea and Boston College defensive end Harold Landry are considered the best of the second tier of non-QB prospects.

Rick Porcello (R), 88.6 percent, Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Angels: The Halos lead the majors with a .358 wOBA and a 39.3 hard-contact rate, per Fangraphs, both of which will prove difficult for the strikeout-wary Porcello to tame, despite his 3-0, 1.83 ERA and recent near no-hitter.

Wide Receiver: Ever since the loss of Steve Smith in 2014, the Panthers have lacked a consistent receiving corps. Devin Funchess emerged as a quality weapon in 2017 but Carolina needs to improve a group that still looks extremely shaky despite the addition Torrey Smith and Jarius Wrigcanucks_670ht in free agency.

Defensive End: The Panthers have always prided themselves on having a ferocious front seven and this season should be no different. Mario Addison, Julius Peppers and Wes Horton make a solid trio at defensive end. Still, getting younger needs to be a top priority for Carolina come draft day.
