Adrian Beltre is a beautiful human. And at 38-years-old, he is still making beautiful plays like this one at third base.
Oh, how I was going to savage the Dodgers in this silly little exercise. When the clock struck 1:00 p.m. PT, they had two new left-handed relievers, and both of them were buy-low guys they are assuming can be polished up. Tony Watson isn’t really close to the All-Star he was a couple years ago, and Cingrani is a befuddling mess. On the one hand, the Dodgers are the team that’s turned Brandon Morrow into a late-inning monster. On the other hand, tick tock. Better fix them before the postseason.
It was an underwhelming cavalry for a team that could be forgiven for assuming they didn’t need any substantial upgrades.
You can read why I think this makes the Dodgers winners over here. The short version: They’re going to have a four-man rotation in the postseason. That’s so danged huge for them. They’ve needed that for years, and now they have it. Terrifying.
I can tell that I’m not going to get anywhere with this line of Cheap USA Soccer Jerseys questioning, so I change the subject and ask Marlins Man if he’s excited that the All-Star Game is in Miami.
He is excited. So are the nine Mermaids he’s bringing with him, he Cheap UK NFL Jerseys says. Mermaids is the name he’s given to women he finds attractive and brings to games, since that’s what the Marlins called their cheerleading squad until the team disbanded it in 2012.
Andrew Luck played well in the Indianapolis Colts’ win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday night, but there is at least one throw he would like to have back. On 3rd-and-1 just before the midway point of the fourth quarter, Luck left a short pass at the feet of Reggie Wayne, forcing Cheap USA Soccer Jerseys the wideout to contort his way back to the ball and suffer a knee sprain (or potentially worse) in the process.
After the game, Luck was contrite speaking with Peter King at Monday Morning Quarterback.
“It stinks to the nth degree,” said Luck. “I put a lot of blame on myself for missing that throw.”
Luck’s pass was most certainly underthrown, as you can see from the GIF below. Whether he deserves the blame he is apparently heaping upon himself is another question. Bad throws and knee injuries off awkward foot plants are a regular occurrence in football. Luck doesn’t have a history of being an erratic passer either. Sometimes freak injuries occur.
It’s strange to be in the third year of C.J. Spiller’s NFL career and still not have a good sense of what the Bills have at running back. At this point he should be the team’s focal point, but inconsistent running continues to make him a supplemental piece to Fred Jackson. On Sunday he managed just 11 yards on six carries, making it a larger problem the team may be forced to answer in 2014.
Ryan Tannehill is playing well, but the Dolphins’ quarterback has been significantly worse since his Monday Night Football loss to the New Orleans Saints. It’s hard to quantify Cheap US Jerseys what’s going wrong on the field, making the possibility of confidence being the greater issue. There’s no confusing the fact Miami has huge problems on its offensive line, but Tannehill dealt with pressure better in the first three games of the season. If the Dolphins want to be in a spot to pressure New England he’ll need to get his groove back.
