Friday notes and links: Robertson, Miller, Billings, prospects

A few notes and links as we wrap up this week before Thanksgiving (pretty amazing that it’s this late in the year already, isn’t it?): • Andrew Marchand talked to a handful of executives and scouts about the free agent market for former Yankees closer Dave Robertson. The general consensus seems to be that Robertson […] The post Friday notes and links: Robertson, Miller, Billings, prospects appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Execs: D-Rob will get his 'Papelbon money'

The question is: Will David Robertson receive "Papelbon" money from the Yankees? The expectation is that Robertson's free-agent contract will at least be in the neighborhood of Jonathan Papelbon's four-year, $50 million contract, the highest ever for a closer. Four MLB officials, surveyed by ESPN...

Wiz Insider: Wizards vs. Cavaliers: Game 11 discussion thread

A rare scene will unfold Friday night at Verizon Center: the Washington Wizards will play in a marquee game in November. It hasn’t happened in years, but elevated expectations combined with a star-studded opponent, some trash talk and a potentially rekindled rivalry on a national stage will fuel such a spectacle.

Falcons coach, quarterback still laud trade with Browns that landed Julio Jones

Falcons coach, quarterback still laud trade with Browns that landed Julio Jones

Before there was Sammy Watkins, there was Julio Jones.Fans lusted after Clemson wide receiver Watkins in the 2014 draft, only to see the Browns send the fourth overall pick to the Buffalo Bills for a 2015 first-round pick. The Bills snapped up Watkins, who ranks 22nd in the league with 649 receiving yards and five touchdowns.But that was not nearly the haul the Browns reaped in 2011, when they traded the sixth overall pick to Atlanta so the Falcons could select Alabama receiver Julio Jones.Besides receiving the Falcons’ first-round pick (27th overall), the Browns also picked up second- and...

Injury Update: Foster Misses Practice, Unlikely to Play Against Bengals

The Texans may be looking for Alfred Blue to shoulder the load again this Sunday, as Arian Foster missed Friday's practice. Alfred Blue delivered a strong performance last week in Cleveland with 156 yards on a franchise record 36 carries.  Jonathan Grimes backed up Blue with 13 carries for 54 yards rushing.  Both of these players may need to tote the rock again if Arian Foster is unable to suit-up for the game. Sports Radio 610 is reporting: When asked if there was anything new to report on Foster’s status, O’Brien simply replied, "No." When Foster was asked directly if he would be...

The Lions Try to Describe Rob Gronkowski; So We Make Everyone Else Describe Him, Too

The Lions are tasked with stopping Rob Gronkowski. Here's what they think they're up against. The Lions know they have their hands full with Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. "He's Gronk," said Lions slot receiver Jeremy Ross, to Detroit News. "The name fits him. He's just this guy who's this meathead dude who goes in and catches the ball and just makes plays. "He's like, 'I'm Gronk. I'm going to get in there, I'm going to throw people off me, I'm going to score and do whatever I can to make plays. And that's what he does." Personally, I think that's a pretty good description of Gronk,...

Seahawks vs Cardinals: Gametime, TV and Radio info, full injury reports, live analysis, and more

Watching the Seahawks play the Cardinals? Check out our full coverage right here. Seahawks center Max Unger has a high ankle sprain and a tweaked knee, suffered when he was rolled up on in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. Unger left the game and didn't return, and Pete Carroll said today that the injury looks like a "three to four week" type of recovery. Let's hope that's just being conservative. Carroll did say that Luke Willson had a similar injury and he was able to return in a week, but that every high-ankle sprain is different. Unger is obviously carrying around a little more weight than...
