Walk-off workout: Nationals practice game-ending trots

Posted on by

Bryce Harper pantomimed a swing, flipped his imaginary bat, pointed to where the home dugout would be and trotted around the bases while the 100 or so Washington fans surrounding the practice field roared.

They all ran around the bases like it was a home run, Martinez said. If it was me, I would have walked to first base and got a base hit, and game over.

It was the start of a budding rivalry as the teams were both in the Northwest Division for more than a decade and now face each other in Central Division matchups several times per year.

The latest will take place on Tuesday when the Avalanche come to Minnesota in need of a win versus a Wild team that may be bent on revenge.

It has been barely a week since the Wild visited Denver and limped home after a humbling 7-1 loss to Colorado — a game that both teams will certainly have in mind during this rematch.

The difference in that game is we came out and had a real good start, Avalanche forward Gabriel Landeskog said Monday after the team practiced in Colorado, Joe Mixon Jersey then boarded an eastbound plane.

We seem to feed off a good start, but we’re going to expect these guys to come out hard and to play a lot harder than they did in our building. I’m sure they want to show us they’re not ready to give up a playoff spot to us, so it’s going to be a fun game.

The Colorado goaltending situation is in flux. Jonathan Bernier had to leave Saturday’s 5-2 win over the Coyotes when he took a puck to the head. If he cannot go in Minnesota and has to miss time, the Avalanche are confident that mainstay Semyon Varlamov can fill the gap in the crease.

Kerr believes young people will help create change. All I’ve really done is expressed my outrage and my concern, he said.

Kerr said he’d like to do more, perhaps getting my team involved.

I have been truly inspired by what I’m seeing lately from the kids at Douglas High School, Kerr said. I’m inspired by what’s happening. It feels real. For the first time, it feels like something’s happening.

Brandon Linder Mens Jersey Kerr’s father, Malcolm, president of the American University of Beirut, was murdered in Beirut when Kerr was 18 and a freshman at the University of Arizona.

I know how the Parkland families feel, or the Aurora families, or Sandy Hook, Kerr said. I know what it feels like. I met family members from Las Vegas. I know what that feels like. It’s awful. It’s devastating. It’s horrible.

Chris Paul’s hot play moves him up to No. 11, one spot ahead of the injured Curry. During the past five games, Paul is averaging 19.4 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 8.0 APG, 1.4 SPG and 2.4 3PG.

The Broncos take an accusation of this nature very seriously and will continue to closely monitor the legal proceedings.

After being released Friday by the Seahawks, Sherman said he had received preliminary interest from the Titans, Lions, Raiders, Texans, Buccaneers and Packers, as well as the 49ers. San Francisco ended up being the choice, which means two games against his former team in Seattle each regular season.

In adding Sherman, the 49ers filled what was arguably the biggest hole on their team with the most proven veteran cornerback on the market. San Francisco allowed a Total QBR of Authentic Steve Carlton Jersey 87 last season, second-worst in the league. At the NFL scouting combine, Lynch said it didn’t take a savant to see the team’s need at the position.

Shead’s agent, Cameron Foster, told ESPN that the NFL recently informed the Seahawks that Shead’s contract was going to toll. But general manager John Schneider had already assured Shead that he would be an unrestricted free agent.

John Schneider called me saying they were going to release DeShawn on Monday because, per the league rule, it’s the NFL’s position that DeShawn’s contract is to toll, Foster said. But it’s our position, the NFL Players Association’s position and the Seattle Seahawks’ position that it does not toll. John had already informed DeShawn that his contract was expiring after this year, and the Seattle Seahawks are just living up to their word.

Police say the 6-foot-4, 287-pound Gotsis raped a 25-year-old woman on March 9, 2013. The woman reported last month, on Feb. 1, that she had been raped.

Limited Youth Adrian Amos Jersey We were recently informed of an investigation into an alleged incident involving Adam Gotsis that occurred in 2013 when he was in college, the Broncos said in a statement Monday. Our organization was aware of his arrest on March 7, and it is our understanding that no determination has been made at this time as to whether any charges will be filed.

This issue was promptly reported to the NFL as soon as we learned of it, and we will remain in communication with the league office regarding this matter.

Gotsis’ attorney, Sara Becker, denied the allegations in a statement issued later Monday.

Yankees’ Aaron Judge says he won’t compete in another Home Run Derby

Posted on by

Don’t expect to see Aaron Judge taking swings at this season’s Home Run Derby.

I’ve watched him a little bit on TV. I’ve watched clips of him, so I really don’t have much knowledge about him, but he’s played five years in Japan and he’s come over here. There’s definitely a lot of expectations from fans around what he can do, what he’s going to do, what he’s able to do, how he’s going to be able to perform here. There seems to be enormous expectations for him, but no one really knows how well he’s going to perform here. That’s something to be seen.

Now, you do know a little bit about Mike Scioscia and the Angels. You spent some time with them at the end of your career. What can Ohtani expect from his new team and manager?

As far as I know, the people that were there with the Angels at the time when I played, a lot of them are still there. So he’s with a good ballclub, he’s surrounded by a great support environment, the Angels have a great fan base, so from my experience, I think he made a really great choice in signing with the Angels.

Jake Arrieta’s painfully slow free agency is now over.

According to multiple reports, the 2015 Cy Young Award winner has agreed to a three-year, $75 million deal with the Phillies on Sunday.

After striking out the next batter, Nate Orf, on a splitter, Ohtani walked Ji-Man Choi. With clean-up batter Manny Pi?a up, Ohtani threw a wild pitch in the dirt. Catcher Martín Maldonado’s wild throw to second in a bid to catch the advancing Choi allowed a run to score.

Why do you think that is regarding the Japanese baseball population?

Blake Griffin reacts after trade to Pistons

Posted on by

As he leaves the only team and city he has known since beginning his professional career nearly eight years ago, Blake Griffin expressed gratitude Tuesday to Los Angeles, the Clippers and their fans.

Griffin posted a brief statement on Twitter the morning after the stunning trade that sent him to the Pistons along with Willie Reed and Brice Johnson for Avery Bradley, Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic and a first- and second-round draft pick.

“From being a #1 pick, to Lob City, to six straight Playoff appearances, I am so proud to have been part of the success of the Clippers organization,” he wrote. “LA has been my home since I started in the league and I will be forever grateful to the city for embracing me and supporting me.”

Bennett scored 5:35 in after a Sabres breakdown in front of their own net. Bennett drove to the net to collect a loose puck and snapped it over goalie Chad Johnson, who was flat on his back.

Three minutes later, Bennett set up Jankowski’s goal by driving up the left wing and entering the Sabres zone. He fed a pass into the middle, where Jankowski used Nelson as a screen and snapped a 40-footer that sneaked in under Johnson’s left arm.

According to The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, Hood has drawn interest from a number of teams in the market for a scoring wing. Hood’s production has made him an attractive piece for a team to acquire ahead of the season’s final stretch. In entertaining offers for Hood, the Jazz appear to be heading in a different direction, while Hood is set for a large payday during the 2018 free agency period.

Provided Hood does not elect to play out the final season of his rookie contract under a qualifying offer, the team that makes a play to acquire him would essentially be making a move to include Hood in their long-term plans.

Two teams that have inquired about Hood are the Pistons and Bulls. The Pistons made headlines with the report that they have put Avery Bradley’s name in the trade rumor mill, while the Bulls and Jazz have been linked in trade rumblings surrounding Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic. Because of Hood’s contract figures, Utah might need to add a player with an expiring contract like Derrick Favors or Joe Johnson to make a deal work.lions_084

Hawks’ DeAndre’ Bembry arrested while racing, suspected of exceeding 150 mph

Posted on by

Hawks forward DeAndre’ Bembry was pulled over early Friday morning after being clocked at 128 mph in a 55-mph zone.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Bembry is suspected of racing another vehicle in his Dodge Charger at speeds in excess of 150 mph on Interstate 85.

Valentine scored 11 points with three rebounds in the win. He recorded a double-double (10 points, 10 rebounds) on Saturday.

LaMarcus Aldridge: The Spurs forward found out he was the last pick in the All-Star draft, then missed one shot in four minutes of playing time. Bummer.

Look, someone has to be last in any draft, and in this case, we’re really saying Aldridge is the 24th best player in the NBA this season. There is absolutely no shame in that. Still, we couldn’t get the guy one of those patented fadeaway jumpers in the post?

Jimmy Butler: The only All-Star to not play a single minute in Sunday’s game, Butler actually chose to sit on the bench. Butler did put in 41 minutes of work Thursday night in the Timberwolves’ win over the Lakers and leads the league in minutes per game (37.3), so his postgame explanation makes sense.

“Just rest, man,” Butler said (via the Minneapolis Star-Tribune). “I got to rest. I got to rest my body up. I know this Timberwolves season is very, very important to me. I’ve got to be ready to roll when I get back there.”

Willy Hernangomez got his wish.

The Knicks have traded the first-team 2016-17 NBA All-Rookie center to the Hornets for two second-round draft picks, the Knicks announced Wednesday.

Originally, it was was reported that Johnny O’Bryant would be part of the trade, but he will be waived, instead.

The Wizards got no closer than five points in the final minute.

Posted on by

Porter scored 13 points in the third quarter as the Wizards rallied from a 10-point deficit.

The Wizards fell to 10-5 as point guard John Wall recovers from left knee surgery.

The three-day break Utah enjoyed before Friday’s contest marked their longest in a month, and Utah used it to practice twice. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, the Jazz concentrated on film session and game planning how to use Jae Crowder, acquired from the Cleveland Cavlaiers at the deadline.

“It’s something we have to take advantage of for sure,” Mitchell told the Tribune.

Mitchell is coming off Western Conference Rookie of the Month honors in February, the third time he’s won that award this season. He averaged 21.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.8 assists, and scored 19.4 points per game during the long winning streak.

The Jazz would be smart to get guard Joe Ingles rolling again. Ingles averaged nearly 16 points a game and shot 54 percent from 3-point range during Utah’s winning streak. He’s managed just 41 points in four games since that streak ended.

Veteran forward Trevor Booker indicated on his Twitter account that he’s headed to the Pacers — even if the team is not yet ready to announce a deal. Booker was expected to sign with Indiana when he clears waivers after being released by the Philadelphia 76ers, who needed to clear a roster spot for former Hawks forward-center Ersan Ilyasova. Booker tweeted “Indy, let’s work!!!!” on Wednesday afternoon.

After signing a 10-day contract earlier in the day, Hawks Jaylen Morris made his NBA debut with 4 minutes remaining in the first period and quickly scored his first NBA points on his follow-up of a miss by Miles Plumlee. Morris was averaging 12.6 points with the Hawks’ G League Erie affiliate.
