Aaron Rodgers: Just have to trust the process

A report on Tuesday indicated that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is frustrated by some of what’s gone on in Green Bay this offseason because the team has not gauged his feelings about moves including the release of wide receiver Jordy Nelson.

Rodgers’ feelings became a topic for his first media session of the offseason program later on Tuesday. As he did in a radio interview last week, Rodgers said that Nelson’s departure was a tough one for him because of how close the two players had become over the years.

Authentic Mens Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey He also said that he understands his role on the team is to play quarterback and that he has to trust the process that leads to team decisions.

I thought our hockey team got better through the series, first-year Kings coach John Stevens said. Tonight was our best game and created the most quality chances, just didn’t finish off.

Quick made 20 saves and allowed seven goals in the series, but he and the Kings couldn’t duplicate the rally they pulled off in 2014. Los Angeles lost its first three games to the Sharks in the first round that year and went on to win the series and eventually the Stanley Cup.

He clearly was at least interested in the job; otherwise, Favre wouldn’t have traveled to Bristol for the screen test. As noted by Kyle Koster of TheBigLead.com, Favre’s history with Jenn Sterger would have made him a potentially curious choice for the job, Dede Westbrook Jersey possibly prompting the kind of pushback that may have forced ESPN to quickly pull the plug.

Authentic Mens Ron Parker Jersey Per Marchand, in-house candidates like Booger McFarland and Rex Ryan also will audition. With due respect to both of those guys, neither will come close to restoring the luster that the franchise has quickly lost given the recent departures of Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden.

Here’s the bigger question for Bristol: Given the army of NFL analysts currently under contract, can’t ESPN find someone who’d be both competent and compelling in the Monday night booth? At some point, they should just press Kirk Herbstreit and Chris Fowler into service, drop Joe Tessitore to the No. 1 college team, and be done with it.

Sean Rodriguez bounced to McMahon, the third baseman, who threw out Mercer at home. McGee induced Gregory Polanco to hit an inning-ending pop out.

Mercer had two hits as the Pirates lost consecutive games for the first time this season.

The reigning Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year needs to refine his technique to realize his full potential.

The Seattle Seahawks shifted gears recently with far more emphasis placed on their defensive line than on the vaunted secondary. The defensive backs room has undergone an overhaul, and the front requires a similar approach.聽

While Manziel and his camp are aware of when deadlines are, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner is grateful to be back in action in some capacity.

So while just 31.3 percent of the pure guards taken in the first 10 picks became Pro Bowl selections, 53.6 percent of those taken in the next 10 selections were Pro Bowlers, including eight All-Pros — which, B.J. Goodson Jersey at 28.6 percent, is higher than the percentage of All-Pros from the first 10 picks (25.0 percent).

Maeda went 2 2/3 innings in his most recent start against Arizona at Dodger Stadium. He allowed five runs (two earned), five hits and two walks with two strikeouts. He was credited with the defeat in an 8-7 Diamondbacks victory.

But as we’re learning about concussions, he told Kelly, there’s a term we use in football and maybe other sports, that I got ‘dinged.’ When you have ringing of the ears, seeing stars, that is a concussion.

Elite Kids Chuck Foreman Jersey Favre appeared on Kelly’s program with three other retired star athletes: soccer’s Abby Wambach, baseball’s David Ross and Favre’s fellow Pro Football Hall of Famer and former teammate Kurt Warner.

Favre said he would not encourage youngsters to play football.

Holiday has 33 and Pelicans beat the Blazers to go up 2-0

Nick Rimando Authentic Jersey
Removed from the turbulence that marked his previous seasons in New Orleans, Jrue Holiday is in a good place — and it shows.
Men's Reebok Kris Versteeg Premier White Away NHL Jersey: Calgary Flames #10
Holiday had a career playoff-high 33 points as the Pelicans took a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers with a 111-102 victory on Tuesday night. The series shifts to New Orleans on Thursday.

Holiday also had nine assists for the Pelicans, while Rajon Rondo came close to his 11th postseason triple-double with had 16 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. Anthony Davis added 22 points and 13 rebounds.

Troy Brouwer Authentic Jersey CJ McCollum, who struggled with backcourt teammate Damian Lillard in the opener, rebounded with 22 points to lead the Blazers.

Portland trailed by as many as 11 points in the third quarter but Lillard hit a 3-pointer and added a free throw to tie the game at 93 with 7:31 left. Holiday’s pull-up jumper and Rondo’s driving layup kept the Blazers from pulling ahead.

Maurice Harkless dunked and Al-Farouq Aminu had a layup to re-tie the game at 97. After Holiday’s hook shot, Harkless made a 3-pointer to give Portland a 100-99 lead.

Kevin Love scored 15, but Cleveland’s All-Star center injured his left hand, the same one he broke earlier this season, with 3:43 left. Love’s status could affect the remainder of this series — and perhaps Cleveland’s season.

Kyle Korver added 12 points, all on 3s, and made several hustling plays for the Cavs.

Oladipo scored 22 — he was in early foul trouble — and Myles Turner 18 for the Pacers, who shocked the Cavs with an overpowering win in Game Chris Doleman Authentic Jersey 1.

Indiana clawed back from an 18-point deficit and was within 95-92 when Oladipo, who scored 32 in the opener, somehow came free but missed maybe his easiest shot in two games. James grabbed the rebound and made three free throws over the final 22 seconds as the Cavs avoided falling behind 2-0 on the series.

Game 3 is Friday night in Indianapolis.

The 33-year-old James was expected to be more aggressive than in Game 1, when he was unusually passive, deferred to teammates and suffered the first playoff-opening loss of his career.

Manaea, Lowrie lead A’s to 2-1 win over King Felix, Mariners

Sean Manaea admits that last season, giving up a home run in a tight game could have been the start of a rough outing.
Premier Reebok Men's Sidney Crosby Camouflage Jersey - NHL #87 Pittsburgh Penguins
It wasn’t a problem on Sunday.

Manaea pitched seven strong innings and Jed Lowrie hit an early two-run homer off Felix Hernandez, leading the Oakland Athletics to a 2-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners.

That wasn’t a balk. I stepped off the rubber, Hernandez said. It’s frustrating. It should have been an out.

Lowrie took advantage, sending a drive to right field.

I was just trying to figure out what was going on, Lowrie said. I don’t know. Let’s just play, that’s all I’m thinking.

Pavel Bure Jersey The longtime ace worked into the seventh inning for the first time this year, giving up five hits in 6 1/3 innings. He retired 13 in a row after Lowrie’s homer, and struck out seven without issuing a walk.

In the eighth inning, Seattle leadoff Eli Manning Womens Jersey hitter Dee Gordon bunted down the third base line with a runner on first. Oakland third baseman Matt Chapman charged in and narrowly threw out Gordon, a call that was upheld after a replay review.

I don’t know how he makes that play, Melvin said. You’re talking about probably the fastest guy in the league, and when he puts it down and deadens it like that, it’s almost impossible to get him.

Authentic Youth Xavier Ouellet Jersey The play also ended Gordon’s 18-game hitting streak that dated back to last season.

Athletics: INF Chad Pinder (hyperextended left knee) began a rehab assignment with Class A Stockton on Saturday, going 1 for 5. Pinder is eligible to return from the 10-day disabled list Monday. Looks like he’s on track to come back here pretty quick, Melvin said.

No, Pats fans, your star tight end hasn’t announced that he’ll continue to play football. Instead, a horse named Gronkowki will run for the roses.

Via ESPN, Gronk the horse has qualified for the Kentucky Derby by winning the Burradon Stakes in England on Friday. Gronk, as it turns out, is a European horse, and the folks at Churchill Downs have decided for the first time to give one of the 20 spots in the Kentucky Derby to a horse from the Old World

Unless the Jets just don’t feel like Darnold’s anyone they’d be interested in under any circumstances (or unless they’re scheduling a workout as we speak), it just doesn’t seem to make sense not to do the legwork.

Before Exum injured his shoulder in preseason, the Jazz were cautiously optimistic he was ready to make a leap after so many aborted attempts. His play since returning last month has justified that hope.

The official cause of death for Jamie was listed as acute heroin and fentanyl intoxication. A toxicology report also revealed the presence of Alprazolam, the generic form of Xanax.
Charles Clay Game Jersey
He should have never been on Xanax, Ken says. He should have Lance Stephenson Youth jersey never been in that place. Having good insurance put him in that place. … I think all contributed to his death.

We might get into a fight while we’re doing something. You know what I’m saying. It was personal. It was personal. We wanted to kill Hines Ward. I had to threaten him before every play like, ‘If you crack me, I swear to God I’m going to break your f鈥搆ing neck,’ Suggs said.

In 2008, Ward broke the jaw of Cincinnati’s Keith Rivers, leading to the NFL passing a new rule against blindside blocks the next year. Suggs said that he warned Ward that if he tried that against the Ravens, he’d have to worry about a lot more than a 15-yard penalty.

Steve Watterson is retiring from the role he has held the past 32 seasons, making him the longest-tenured NFL assistant coach with consecutive years working for the same team. Tom Kanavy, with 22 seasons of NFL experience, will take over.

Kanavy has spent the past three seasons as Watterson’s assistant. He previously worked for the Vikings and Eagles.

I never spent much time thinking about this moment, but as I was preparing for another offseason to begin, it became clear to me that it was time for me to step down and retire, Watterson said in a statement.

Bailey now says she was driving the vehicle that night and the reason she crashed is because Boykin was hitting her, which caused her to lose control of the car. She said she covered for him at his request because his football career would be lost.

Mavericks, Suns close out lackluster seasons

The season mercifully comes to end for the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns, who finish Tuesday night at American Airlines Center with not much on the line.
Women's Majestic Boston Red Sox #34 David Ortiz Replica Navy Blue Alternate Road MLB Jersey
The Mavericks (24-57) actually have a little more to play for, if needing a loss counts as incentive. A loss means Dallas clinches at least the third-worst record in the league.

Danuel House Jr., making his second career start, scored a career-high 22 points to go along with eight rebounds. House went undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2016.

With the opportunity to play, he’s shown that he knows how to play the game, Triano said. I think he’s a guy that’s used this opportunity to showcase what he can do.

Phoenix is going for its first sweep of Dallas since 1997-98. The Suns’ four-game winning streak in the series is their longest since nine straight from 1997 to 1999.
As a matter of fact, I think it shouldn’t be (a quarterback), Tuck said, per the New York Daily News. But that’s my opinion. The Giants have done a really good job drafting, especially in early rounds, ‘sure things.’ They haven’t been up this high but the last time they had a guy named Eli Manning come across the board, so that worked out pretty well for all guys involved.

Tuck also added that he thinks 37-year-old Manning still has multiple years left in him.

Every time something has happened to make people doubt Eli or question his ability, Tuck said. He’s come back in a really, really big fashion.

Who would Tuck pick instead? It appears the defensive end, who won two Super Bowls with the Giants and Manning, is a big fan of Saquon Barkley.

Keuchel did not face the Twins last season but is 2-2 with a 4.05 ERA in four career appearances against Minnesota, striking out 21 while walking 10 in 20 innings of work.

Josh Donaldson and Aledmys Diaz each hit a two-run homer, and the Blue Jays routed the Chicago White Sox 14-5 on Tuesday night for their fourth consecutive victory.

According to Statcast, Garcia’s one-out drive off J.A. Happ in the fifth travelled 481 feet, making it the longest home run in the majors this season and the longest by a White Sox player since Statcast was introduced in 2015. Garcia’s exit velocity of 116.7 mph was also a White Sox record.

His towering shot hit off the facing of the fourth deck in left-center, just below the window of a stadium hotel room.

Elite Kids Adam Shaheen Jersey A pretty impressive blast, to be honest, Renteria said. Anybody who is a fan of baseball must have been impressed by that shot.

Anderson went 3 for 4, finishing a triple shy of the cycle. Brandin Cooks Jersey He stole two bases and scored three runs.

The first four Boston starters — Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello and Velazquez — combined to give up two runs over 24 innings. The Red Sox, citing the Elias Sports Bureau, said it’s the first time in the club’s 118-year history the starters allowed one run or fewer in each of the first four regular-season games.

Game Kids Rishard Matthews Jersey The defending AL East champions won three of four at Tropicana Field under new manager Alex Cora.

Our starting pitchers did an outstanding job in this series, Cora said. For me, it’s great, it’s a good start. We’ve been playing well for a while now.

Velazquez (1-0) allowed one run and five hits in 5 2/3 innings. Marcus Walden, Bobby Poyner, Matt Barnes and Joe Kelly, who got three outs for his first career save, combined for 3 1/3 scoreless innings of three-hit relief.

Odell Beckham trade rumors: Here’s Giants asking price

The Giants say they aren’t shopping Odell Beckham Jr., but have reportedly set a high asking price for teams willing to make an offer for the enigmatic wide receiver.
Womens Emmanuel Mudiay Jersey #13 Nike Swingman Edrice Adebayo Youth White NBA Jersey - Miami Heat Association Edition
According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Giants are looking for a return of two first-round draft picks as a starting point in any Beckham trade discussions:

While rumors have been swirling this week during the NFL Annual Meeting in Orlando that teams such as the Los Angeles Rams or Cleveland Browns could make a run at acquiring Beckham, an individual with knowledge of the negotiations told NJ Advance Media Wednesday that one team not involved in the Beckham sweepstakes is the Indianapolis Colts.

Cravens sat out the entire 2017 season on the reserve/left squad list after contemplating retirement amid concussion concerns. Cravens was reinstated in February.

The 2016 second-round pick played well in his rookie season in a hybrid safety/linebacker role, compiling 34 tackles, one sack, five passes defended and an interception. The USC linebacker employs athleticism and versatility that are a commodity in today’s NFL.

Cravens’ history of concussions put his future in murky territory. If he bounces back, Denver gains a talented, versatile player as Vance Joseph attempts to remake his defense in 2018.

Advice: If Miami wants to use its first-round pick (No. 11) to fill Suh’s shoes, Washington’s Vita Vea and Alabama’s Da’Ron Payne are the clear choices, though the Dolphins could even potentially trade down to acquire more assets. Later-round prospects Miami might be targeting include Georgia’s Trenton Thompson, Florida State’s Derrick Womens Trent Williams Jersey Nnadi, and Miami’s R.J. McIntosh.

2. Deficiencies at outside linebacker have long been a sore spot. Miami needs to address this issue early in the draft.

Advice: Georgia’s Roquan Smith and Virginia Tech’s Tremaine Edmunds are potential first-round options, though both could be gone by the time Miami is on the clock. Jerome Baker from Ohio State could be a solid option in the second or third round, as could Smith’s teammate Lorenzo Carter.

I think we’re aligned in those goals and one step at a time I pray that we’ll get there.
