Wide receiver. This group is a far cry from the one new head coach Sean McVay got to work with in Washington. Tavon Austin isn’t a true No. 1 wideout (even though he’s being paid like one). Neither is free-agent pickup Robert Woods from Buffalo. The Rams also don’t have a first-round pick to spend on the position after trading it to Tennessee last year for the chance to select quarterback Jared Goff.
Quarterback. The 49ers face a franchise-altering decision come draft night — select a QB with the No. 2 overall pick or continue to wait in hopes of acquiring Washington’s Kirk Cousins whether via trade or free agency by the 2018 offseason. In the meantime, journeyman Brian Hoyer is set to handle the starting reigns for his seventh different NFL team.
There was a feeling Thursday night that Yoenis Cespedes may miss some time with an injury, but no one was truly positive.
Well, everyone is positive now.
This comes after the Mets lost their sixth consecutive games and 10 of their last 11. Cespedes is hitting .270 on the season but leading the team in home runs (6), walks (11) and doubles (4). He was second on the team in RBI (10) and base hits (17).
Since coming over to the Mets in a trade from the Tigers, the Cuban Cheap Barcelona Jerseys native 89 home runs and drove in 243 runs in 356 games.
Juan Lagares replaced Cespedes Thursday night, but it’s uncertain if he’ll be the first option in Cespedes’ absence.
