The Boston Red Sox designated Pablo Sandoval for assignment. The Red Sox still owe Pablo Sandoval just shy of $50 million, which, according to Jon Morosi’s calculations, is the second-most dead money ever left on an MLB deal after Josh Hamilton’s Angels contract. It’s… well, it’s not a great contract. It’s not even a good contract. Is Sandoval’s deal the worst contract, though?
On the bright side, J.D. Martinez is once again crushing it and the Tigers probably can’t afford to re-sign him, so at least they won’t be able to overextend him, too. And hey, Justin Upton will probably opt-out, though that’s actually a shame since his contract ends at age-33, anyway.
And hey, with the number of strikeouts the Red Sox generate, what Devers needs to hit to justify the promotion might not be as high as you’d think.
There’s basically no way the Marlins will trade Giancarlo Stanton to the Yankees. Unless … well, OK. Let’s let Grant Brisbee do the whole Rumor Grade thing to this tasty morsel.
Clayton Kershaw left Sunday’s start with lower back tightness and is expected to land on the disabled list. About the only bright spot from this is that the Dodgers have a massive lead in the NL West and can weather a Kershaw injury.
Kershaw wasn’t the only major starter to be lifted from their Cheap Authentic Jerseys From China game early, as Stephen Strasburg couldn’t get loose and was lifted as a precaution after two innings.
An MLB umpire told a 5-year-old fan to kick Dee Gordon.
I’d make fun of the part where they’re prospect-huggers, except you know that Cheap Barcelona Jerseys every team has been asking for Seager and Bellinger for the last three years, and they’re probably OK with the decision to hang on to them.
The Caps forced a Game 7 with a dominant 5-2 win in Pittsburgh on Monday. The Penguins have now blown series leads of 2-0 and 3-1 and given all the momentum back to the Capitals, who have looked like a new team since dropping star Alex Ovechkin to the third line to help ignite the bottom six.
It’s no surprise this series is heading to Game 7, but how it got to that point is pretty shocking.
Up until Game 5, no team in the Stanley Cup playoffs was playing better than Pittsburgh. The Penguins handled the Blue Jackets 4-1 in Round 1, scoring three goals or more in all five games. They were the superior team in those first four contests against the Capitals, too.
Penguins beat writer Jason Mackey of the Post-Gazette called Monday’s loss “among the worst playoff losses in franchise history.” This is a franchise with four Stanley Cups, so that means something.
The Penguins trailed 5-0 in the third period before a pair of late goals made things a little prettier. They had just eight shots entering the final 20 minutes and the Capitals’ defense was making them look like they had cinder blocks strapped to their skates.
In 2003, they became free agents and signed together with the Avalanche at discounted rates, joining a star-studded cast of Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg and Adam Foote in pursuit of an elusive Stanley Cup for one season. But that’s around the time their careers took separate turns.
Even with the Ducks winning the shot battle 25-8, Nashville took its lead into the third period and Sissons’ second goal of the game made it 3-1 three minutes in.
A pair of goals scored two minutes apart by Chris Wagner and Cam Fowler tied the Cheap Authentic Jerseys From China game, but Sissons completed the hat trick by netting the go-ahead goal with six minutes remaining. A pair of empty-netters ensured the underdog darlings of the playoffs would indeed go Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys the distance.

The Patriots would still have Jacoby Brissett, a third-round pick last year who threw for 400 yards in three games and two starts as a rookie. The Patriots would then look to explore potential Cheap NFL Jerseys free-agent quarterbacks to compete with Brissett for the primary backup job.
An ESPN report Wednesday said the Patriots intend to keep Garoppolo as the No. 2 quarterback behind 39-year-old Tom Brady. But there are several teams, including the Browns, Bears, Jets and 49ers, who need a quarterback, and the Patriots could get a king’s ransom for Garoppolo.
The 25-year-old quarterback, a second-round pick from Eastern Illinois in 2014, played in six games last year and went 2-0 as a starter. He threw for 502 yards and four touchdowns Cheap Authentic Jerseys From China without an interception for a QB rating of 113.3. He has five career touchdown passes and zero picks in 94 career passes.
