Dirk Nowitzki knew he was headed toward bench role when Mavs signed DeAndre Jordan

The writing was on the wall for Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki when he found out that center DeAndre Jordan signed with the team in the offseason: he would be in a bench role for the first time since his rookie year. The future Hall of Famer chimed in his thoughts on coming off the […] The post Dirk Nowitzki knew he was headed toward bench role when Mavs signed DeAndre Jordan appeared first on ClutchPoints.

The Yankees’ defense might cost them a deep playoff run

The Yankees’ defense might cost them a deep playoff run

The Yankees’ offense and strikeout-heavy pitching can’t always paper over their defensive weaknesses. One of the cruelest things about baseball is that it lets you dream. I dreamed of denying the Red Sox the pleasure of clinching the AL East at Yankee Stadium, and the Yankees did their darnedest to make that dream a reality, winning the first two games of the series. Game three began inauspiciously, with Masahiro Tanaka having his first rough start in a while, but when Giancarlo Stanton hit his go-ahead grand slam in the fourth, I honestly thought that the Yankees had the sweep in the...

Lee not fined, Blount fined $10,026 for unnecessary roughness

Lee not fined, Blount fined $10,026 for unnecessary roughness

Not surprising. One came off the side lines to de-cleat the other. One of the lesser storylines coming out of the San Francisco 49ers win over the Detroit Lions was Lions running back LeGarrette Blount’s antics in the fourth quarter. On second down, quarterback Matthew Stafford scrambled out of the pocket and took off down the sideline. 49ers linebacker Elijah Lee met Stafford and knocked him out of bounds and onto his back. Assuming it was a late hit, Bount then clocked Lee from the sidelines resulting in a penalty. After it’s all said and done, Blount was fined $10,026 for the...

Victor Martinez retiring after today’s game

Detroit DH Victor Martinez announced that today’s game, in front of the home fans, will be the final game of his career Victor Martinez of the Detroit Tigers is retiring, with today’s game being his final one, he announced yesterday. Martinez wanted his last game to be in front of the fans in Detroit. Martinez, 39, is in his 16th season (or 17th, if you include the 2012 season he missed due to injury). He came up with the Cleveland Indians as a catcher, spent parts of 8 seasons with them, and was traded to the Boston Red Sox during the 2009 season. After 2010, he joined the Detroit...

Artie Burns unsure of starting spot heading into Buccaneers game

The Steelers might be shaking up their starting cornerback across from Joe Haden. There are times when a scapegoat is used. A player who is used as an example for a poor performance. As the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football it looks like the team might have found their scapegoat following a poor performance against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2. Who is the player? CB Artie Burns. Artie Burns said he did not know if he would start Monday night. Coty Sensabaugh confirmed he has first team reps in practice Saturday. Burns said his toe injury...

Should the Redskins Be Worried about the Green Bay Packers?

Aaron Rodgers is back, and that’s cause for some concern for Washington Team: Green Bay Packers 2017 Record: 7-9 (3rd, NFC North) 2018 Record: 1-0-1 (t-1st, NFC North) Outlook: Mike McCarthy’s Packers were 4-1 when Aaron Rodgers got knocked out early against the Minnesota Vikings on October 15. Predictably, Green Bay wasn’t the same after Rodgers’ injury, winding up 7-9 and missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008. After an injury scare against the Bears in Week One, Rodgers is back, but his longtime favorite target Jordy Nelson (Raiders) isn’t. The Packers still have...

Two indicators that Wentz is going to challenge defenses more... Heading into the Week 3 showdown with the Indianapolis Colts, the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles are in need of an offensive spark. Surrounded by a unit plagued by injuries and uncertainty at both wide receiver and running back, franchise quarterback Carson Wentz is in an unenviable position. But he has two things working in his favor that Nick Foles has been missing through two weeks.

Pete Carroll won’t confirm if Earl Thomas will play vs. Dallas

I guess you could call the Seattle Seahawks vs. Dallas Cowboys game “The Earl Thomas Bowl.” We know that the Cowboys were essentially the leading team when negotiating failed trade talks to land the All-Pro safety, and really this can all be traced back to the famous “come get me” moment on Christmas Eve 2017 in Arlington. Thomas’ contract holdout is over, he’s been his usual excellent self through two games, but with the Cowboys game looming, there’s suddenly uncertainty over whether or not he’ll play this Sunday. On Friday, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll noted that...

deGrom all but nails down the Cy Young as Mets eliminate Nationals

deGrom all but nails down the Cy Young as Mets eliminate Nationals

deGrom lowered his ERA to 1.77 and the Mets gave him enough run support to earn the win. Jacob deGrom broke another record tonight. His 23 consecutive quality starts are the most in a single season. This time, he got a win to show for it, as the Mets defeated the Nationals 4-2 in Washington. In a rather shocking turn of events, deGrom was granted the lead before he even took the mound. The Mets got to Joe Ross with a run in the top of the first, thanks to an Amed Rosario double and a Jay Bruce single that put them on the board. deGrom put up a zero in the bottom of the frame, striking out...

Game Recap: Gurriel Powers Astros Over Halos, 11-3

Cole mows down 12 Angels. It was a Gurriel night. A night of Gurriel power. Pina power. The first two home run night of his Astros career. A night when he increased his own home run total for the year by 20%. When he went from an exactly league average hitter for the season to 5 % above league average in one night. His seven RBI were more than enough for the Astros to cruise to victory over the Los Angeles Angels, 7-3. Gurriel put the Astros up 4-0 in the first with a grand slam, just fair and just over the right field fence. It was only the second opposite field home run hit by Yuli in...

During the third quarter Georgia was whistled for a roughing the passer penalty that, quite frankly, was not. Tyler Clark may have brushed some lint off Drew Lock’s pants. It was a crap call, but then Marc Curles is officiating today so you already knew that.
