Didi Gregorius plays with style — from his http://www.rd-corp.com/paul-oneill-jersey-c-1_33.html sweet lefty swing to his slick glovework to his rocket throwing arm.
He’s got plenty of style off the field, too.
In fact, there's little doubt in the Yankees shortstop's mind that he's one of the best-dressed players on the team.
“(It’s) me and Castro," Gregorius told the Daily News, referring to his double-play partner, second baseman Starlin Castro. "It’s not flashy stuff, but we like matching. That’s the best part — matching colors. It’s just something different.”
He’s something of an authority on the matter, considering he’s one of the newest faces of Banana Republic. Gregorius, 27, recently launched a partnership with the clothing company and joined its first Men’s Style Council of fashion ambassadors, which also includes Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, Portland Trailblazers guard C.J. McCollum and Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love.
It’s Gregorius’ most-involved sponsorship to date, and the first real advertisement campaign he’s been a part of with a brand. It’s also the http://www.texansprosale.com/shane-lechler-jersey-c-1_41.html latest proof of Gregorius emerging as one of Major League Baseball’s brightest young stars.
The Netherlands-born infielder is batting a robust .302 with 19 home runs — one shy of his career-high — and 60 RBI this season, all while regularly hitting in the middle of the Yankees order. His number 18 jersey has become a staple within the Yankee Stadium crowd.

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback http://www.cinemakolik.com/curtis-samuel-jersey-c-1_10.html Tony Romo is calling his first game at CBS' No. 1 analyst replacing Phil Simms.
Simms is now on the pregame show, which led to an awkward interview between Simms and Romo on Sunday morning.
Said Simms: "Hey Tony, how are you doing? How does that seat feel?"
Romo: "Hey Phil, great to hear your voice there."
Later, Simms said: "Don't be nervous. Only 50 million http://www.dusenadup.com/ryan-kalil-jersey-c-1_20.html people are watching."
UPDATE: The early reviews are very good for Romo.
SportsDay's Barry Horn weighd in, writing that, while Romo is very green, Simms simply needed to go.

Happ singled and scored in the first, and Javier Baez hit a leadoff double in the second and came home on Rene Rivera's sacrifice bunt. Jason Heyward singled http://www.hl-sapporo.com/kawann-short-jersey-c-1_11.html and was driven in by pitcher Jon Lester's double in the fourth. Baez and Heyward then drove in Anthony Rizzo and Ben Zobrist with back-to-back singles in the fifth.
Pirates starter Jameson Taillon (7-6) lasted just 4 2/3 innings while giving up six runs and 11 hits. Taillon struck out three.
Lester (10-7) worked around traffic in his first four innings but settled down to go six innings with one run and five hits allowed. He struck out five and walked four.
Almora's two-run shot scored Rizzo and came off reliever Angel Sanchez.
Happ also threw out a runner at home from center field. The rookie charged in on Taillon's grounder and cut down Jordy Mercer to end the second inning.
Rookies Josh Bell and Jordan Luplow each had RBIs for the Pirates, who had eight hits but left 11 men on base.
The start of the game was delayed 52 minutes by rain and was played through scattered showers throughout.
The teams split the four-game series in Pittsburgh, with NL Central-leading Chicago taking the overall season series, 10-9.
TRAINING ROOM?
Cubs: C Willson Contreras made his first rehab http://www.hssmstore.com/kelvin-benjamin-jersey-c-1_27.html appearance since straining his right hamstring. He went 0 for 2 with a strikeout and caught two innings with Class A Myrtle Beach.
Pirates: RHP George Kontos (strained right groin) was activated from the 10-day disabled list. The team expects to activate OF Gregory Polanco (left hamstring strain) and INF/OF Adam Frazier (right hamstring strain) on Friday.
UP NEXT
Cubs: John Lackey (11-10, 4.74 ERA) will begin a three-game series with Milwaukee. He's 6-1 with a 3.83 ERA since the All-Star break.
Pirates: Trevor Williams (6-7, 4.14) starts a series in St. Louis. In his last three starts, he's given up just two runs.

We are one week into the college football season and it feels great. Between UCLA pulling off one of the greatest comebacks in the history of http://www.texansprosale.com/lamar-miller-jersey-c-1_39.html the sport, Virginia Tech and Tennessee putting up defensive stands at the last second, and all of the glorious fun that occurred on Saturday, we had a pretty awesome Week 1.
The best part? Week 2 is going to be even better. We have four games with potential playoff consequences, a couple rivalry matchups, and a whole lot of teams getting their first real tests of the season. The first week of the season is for sitting on the couch in a daze and smiling all weekend because football is finally back. The second week is for hunkering down and realizing that this is going to be a long, hard season.
Here are college football’s studs and duds to watch out for on Saturday.
Let’s talk about Louisville Cardinals quarterback Lamar Jackson for a second. Last year’s Heisman winner is an absolute freak of nature and we got him on full display Saturday night against Purdue. With the Cardinals facing a potential disaster in a game they were expected to win easily, Jackson threw for 378 yards and two touchdowns — one of them being the go-ahead score. He also rushed for an additional 107 yards, meaning that he accounted for an absurd 485 yards out of Louisville’s 524 in the entire game. This week, Jackson goes on the road against a North Carolina team which gave up 35 in a loss to California on Saturday. That UNC-Cal game started at 9:00 am PT and the Golden Bears moved the ball at will. It seems fair to say Jackson will be fine.
Dud: South Florida
South Florida came into the year hoping to be the Group of Five’s representative in a New Year’s Six bowl game. Although the Bulls are 2-0, neither win looked good. They struggled through the first half on the road at San Jose State two http://www.hl-sapporo.com/graham-gano-jersey-c-1_13.html weeks ago, then came home and let FCS Stony Brook hang with them. Despite this, USF was able to stay in the top 25. That may not be for long. They have their first AAC game this week, traveling to UConn. On paper, this is a game they should win fairly easily, but so were the last two. Consider Charlie Strong’s Bulls to be on upset watch.
The Nittany Lions have yet to beat the Pittsburgh Panthers in the 21st century, mostly because the rivalry was on hiatus from 2001-2015. However, Penn State dropped a close one in the renewal last year and now the game returns to State College. Expect the nation’s most-dynamic offensive team to have a chip on its shoulder. Pitt struggled to handle FCS Youngstown State last week and transfer quarterback Max Browne didn’t look to be cut from the same cloth as Nathan Peterman. We could see a blowout here as Penn State tries to further assert itself in the national championship conversation.
Dud: Michigan State
Here’s something we learned last week: Western Michigan doesn’t seem to be much worse after the departures of head coach P.J. Fleck and wide receiver Corey Davis. The Broncos gave playoff hopeful USC a game at the L.A. Coliseum and now travel to East Lansing looking for a statement win. Michigan State handled Bowling Green easily in Week 1, but the Spartans still have a long way to go before they hit relevancy again. This is a beatable team, even at home. This could be a close one. Don’t be surprised if Western Michigan replaces USF in the top-25 by the week’s end, with a win.
Stud: Butch Jones, head coach, Tennessee
On Monday night against Georgia Tech, Jones did what he had to do. Only barely — Tennessee needed a stop on a two-point conversion in double overtime — but a win is a win. The embattled head coach will be back on the hot seat at some point this year, but he can rest easy this week. The Vols welcome the Sycamores of Indiana State to Neyland Stadium in a game that should be over in the first half. Perhaps Jones can even address the quarterback dilemma by getting redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano some Greg Olsen Kids Jersey reps without worrying about the game itself. That could buy him goodwill going into a high-stress matchup in the Swamp against the Florida Gators. However, a rivalry loss will likely restart the rumor mill all over again.

HOUSTON -- DeAndre Hopkins had been waiting for this day for a long time.
This past Thursday, the Houston Texans http://www.ochomesnloans.com/andy-lee-jersey-c-1_17.html wide receiver signed a five-year, $81 million extension with $49 million guaranteed, the largest amount of guaranteed money ever given to a wide receiver in the NFL.
With just a few exceptions, the Texans have extended their first-round picks before or during the fourth year of their rookie deals. After Hopkins had a breakout season in 2015, he left training camp and held out for one day, telling ESPN that he wanted “to be treated for what I'm worth.”
After the numbers Hopkins put up in his first four seasons in Houston -- 317 catches for 4,487 yards and 23 touchdowns -- he was expecting a big contract. And last week, he finally got that payday on the eve of his fifth NFL season.
“When you go out there and put up numbers like those, like I did the past four years, anything less than being top or being paid as a top receiver would be downgrading,” Hopkins said.
“But I knew this organization would come through. I didn’t want to play anywhere else but Houston, honestly. They took a chance and drafted me [with the] 27th pick overall, so I was appreciative of that.”
Hopkins had a dip in production in 2016 -- his worst season, with 78 catches for 954 yards and four touchdowns -- with quarterback Brock Osweiler throwing to him. But the Texans saw past what they think is an anomaly and rewarded Hopkins for his big numbers, especially because he’s done it with the quarterback carousel that has taken place in Houston.
Since 2013, Hopkins has caught a touchdown http://www.yadeos.com/fozzy-whittaker-jersey-c-1_16.html pass from eight different quarterbacks. According to Elias, only one other player in NFL history has done that. The Texans expect a big season out of Hopkins, and he and the team hope that Tom Savage can give him some stability at quarterback in 2017.
Hopkins said he was confident the contract would get done before the season started, because he knew the team believed in him and would take care of him.
“I was confident in this organization and this team for believing in me,” Hopkins said. “I know what I did. I know the work I’ve put in over the past four years for them to do that.”

There will be changes on Thursday night to the Texans offense.
While he's not announced a decision http://www.officialpiratessale.com/starling-marte-jersey-c-1_15.html on whether Deshaun Watson or Tom Savage will start at quarterback, head coach Bill O'Brien acknowledged that injuries have dictated who will be out against Cincinnati.
All three tight ends on the 53-man roster--C.J. Fiedorowicz, Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson--exited Sunday's loss to Jacksonville with concussions. Receiver Bruce Ellington, who played 45 of 79 offensive snaps against the Jaguars, also left the game with a concussion. O'Brien said it's unlikely any of those pass-catchers will be available against the Bengals.
"Most of those guys are probably going to be out for the game, relative to it being a short week," O'Brien said. "We’re looking at all those different things schematically, roster-wise, all the different things that go into that."
But injury is not the only factor dictating a change to the offense. O'Brien said rookie running back D'Onta Foreman, who carried the ball once for four yards in the second quarter, "will be in there more" in the Week 2 contest.
Also, offensive lineman Greg Mancz will likely get an opportunity with the first-team offense.
“Absolutely I can envision Mancz starting," O'Brien said. "Mancz hung in there, played tough. Mancz started 16 games for us last year at center, so I certainly already have the visual evidence of him starting for us.”
Mancz didn't start on Sunday, but came off the http://www.officialredsprostore.com/devin-mesoraco-jersey-c-1_15.html bench and split time between both guard spots. In all, he was on the field for 48 offensive snaps, spelling starters Xavier Su'a-Filo on the left side, and Jeff Allen on the right. In 2016, he started every game at center.
Receiver Jaelen Strong, who missed Week 1 because of a suspension, will also likely be available in Cincinnati.
The Texans will have a walkthrough Monday night, a practice Tuesday, and a walkthrough Wednesday morning before flying out for Cincinnati.

Why he's No. 3: With every play last http://www.officialredssale.com/homer-bailey-jersey-c-1_7.html season, Collins made 31 teams regret passing on him in the first round of the 2015 draft while rewarding the Giants for trading up to get him at the top of the second. The All-Pro was a dominant force all over the field, putting himself in contention for the league's Defensive Player of the Year honors. He plays with physicality rarely seen from those who have suited up in the secondary in franchise history, and his confidence spread throughout a talented defensive unit. If the Giants need a play, they count on Collins to make it. At 23, he's already a leader in the locker room and one of the NFL's rising talents.
Quotable: "I think the sky’s the limit for Landon. We know he’s a talented player, he’s a hungry player. He loves the game. You can see that not only with the way he plays on Sundays but with the way he practices. Like anything else, it’s not like riding a bike. You have to go out and earn it. You can’t be too big to do the little things. You’re constantly chasing your fundamentals and getting better there, and the physicality is http://www.rd-corp.com/matt-holliday-jersey-c-1_38.html going to come. But, practice is important and he loves practice, so he’s got a great chance." - Giants coach Ben McAdoo
How a wild-card

In the course of one game -- nine innings of baseball -- one door opened and a window slammed shut.
With the Chicago Cubs in Pittsburgh this http://www.texansprosale.com/stephen-anderson-jersey-c-1_29.html week, it's a good time to remember how the course of history changed on the night of Oct. 7, 2015, when the Cubs beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0 in the National League wild-card game behind a complete game by pitcher Jake Arrieta.
The Pirates were coming off a loss in the 2014 wild-card game and a three-games-to-two defeat in the 2013 NL division series. They had broken a two-decades-long postseason drought, and the future looked bright even as they finished second in the NL Central to the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Cubs, on the other hand, were "a year ahead of schedule," as the narrative went. The young team finished third in the division, with the third-best record in baseball (97-65), 3 games behind the Cardinals and 1 behind the Pirates.
Baseball's second wild-card spot gave them a chance, and they grabbed it, with Dexter Fowler and Kyle Schwarber hitting home runs and Arrieta doing what he had done all season.
"I don't dwell on it, quite frankly," manager Joe Maddon said this past weekend. He was completing his first season in Chicago in 2015. "I've been involved in two wild-card games, that one and the one in Cleveland a couple years before that (when he managed Tampa Bay). And they're crazy.
"I just remember that. When you go into a wild-card, it's the seventh game of the World Series as the first playoff game. That's what it is. So you have to try to make your best guess as you put your right lineup out there."
There are no guarantees in sports, but think how things might have been different if the Cubs had not won in Pittsburgh that night.
There would not have played the Cardinals in the NLDS, where the Cubs vanquished their Gateway Arch rivals and longtime nemesis. It was during that series that the "legend" of Schwarber was born, as he hit a home run that landed on top of the right-field videoboard at Wrigley Field in the clincher.
Although they were swept four straight in the http://www.armacan.com/ed-dickson-jersey-c-1_25.html championship series with the Mets, the deep postseason run provided a valuable experience.
"For us, absolutely, it accelerated our progress, no question; I cannot deny that," Maddon said. "But I never really dwell on it. I just know that I'm only a fan of the wild-card game if you're the second wild card. Then it's kind of fun. It's very interesting for the fans. It's really a different method to plan, and it's a tough game."
Things are different in Pittsburgh. The Pirates missed the playoffs last year, finishing 25 games behind the Cubs with a record of 78-83. They're headed to another losing season this year, and the Pittsburgh media are skewering them.
"What's certain, though, is that two years after truly seeming like they'd started something, the Pirates aren't worth your attention," wrote Sean Gentille in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. "(Star outfielder Andrew) McCutchen isn't gone, but he will be soon. The Cubs are the Death Star. The Cardinals are the Cardinals … It's over, and it ended in 2015."
The Pirates heard an old charge recently -- that they're cheap -- after letting their second-best reliever, Juan Nicasio, be claimed off waivers by the Phillies simply to save a few Bucco bucks.
"That is essentially the white flag being waved on the season," wrote Paul Zeise, also in the Post Gazette. "It isn't surprising because the Pirates' playoff hopes were on life support before they were embarrassed in Chicago by the Cubs (last week). This development with Nicasio, though, raises serious questions about the goal of the rest of the season. The goal is no longer winning; it can't be, based on their actions."
The harshest criticism came from Dejan Kovacevic, writer and owner of DKPittsburgh.com. Kovacevic has covered the Pittsburgh sports scene for years. He formerly was the beat writer covering the Pirates for the Post Gazette.
"Pittsburgh deserves better than this garbage," he wrote on Greg Olsen Jersey the site. "Fans of the Pirates deserve better. The proud alumni of the franchise, particularly the surviving members of the 1960, 1971 and 1979 championship teams -- Bill Mazeroski, Bill Virdon, Steve Blass, Manny Sanguillen, Dave Parker, Kent Tekulve to cite a handful -- they all deserve better.
"That's it. That's all I've got on that subject. It's getting harder and harder to find the words, no matter how much new material keeps coming up through this comical incompetence."
That's how quickly it all can change.

It was the eighth inning of a one-sided affair at Yankee Stadium, a moment providing little reason for excitement.
That’s when the cheers came from the http://www.dusenadup.com/ed-dickson-jersey-c-1_38.html right-field seats — “Aaron Judge! Aaron Judge! Aaron Judge!” — like absolutely nothing had changed since the All-Star break; the fans shrieking upon acknowledgment from the star rookie.
Even with so many at-bats to forget in Judge’s second half of this season, fans will remember so few.
The strikeouts won’t survive. The home runs will still be sailing.
Despite going hitless in his first three at-bats of the series finale against the Red Sox, Judge electrified Yankee Stadium after hitting a 469-foot blast for his 38th home run of the season, snapping a season-long 57 at-bat homerless stretch, and helping seal the Yankees’ 9-2 win in the Bronx.
It was Judge’s first home run since Aug. 16, against the Mets.
“It’s a good sign,” manager Joe Girardi said. “I thought his at-bats have been better. It’s kind of hard to evaluate at-bats sometimes against the Corey Klubers and the Chris Sales of the world, but I think his at-bats have been better.”
The night started like so much of the second half of the season, with Judge looking like he might never make contact again.
He went down swinging against Sale in his first at-bat, leaving two runners on base to end the first inning. Judge then went down looking, ending the third inning.
Judge totaled 29 strikeouts against Boston for the season, the most recorded by a Red Sox opponent in one year. He struck out 10 times against Sale, the most by any hitter against a pitcher in the majors.
The Judge’s Chambers in right field appeared http://www.hl-sapporo.com/julius-peppers-jersey-c-1_29.html more and more ridiculous, a section of fans devoted to a rookie drowning below the Mendoza Line since the All-Star break.
Then, with one swing, what had become so hard to watch morphed into all that the crowd wants to see.
Once more, they all rose. Once again, the cheers were as loud as ever.
The power had returned. Judge’s smile, too.
After homering in his first at-bat against the Red Sox this season, Judge had failed to go deep against the rival — a stretch of 85 at-bats — until former Mets reliever Addison Reed took the mound in the sixth inning.
With the Yankees leading 7-1, Judge annihilated a fastball from Reed for a two-run shot, which had an exit velocity of 115.1 mph, and capped a six-run inning. Judge was unavailable to the media following the game.
“He’s leading the league in homers. I don’t think he should be too down on himself,” Matt Holliday said. “When you’re that big and strong and talented, eventually you’re gonna start hitting home runs again.”
Judge, who extended his Yankees rookie record for home runs, tied Frank Robinson for the second-most home runs hit in a rookie Kawann Short Youth Jersey season. Judge now trails only Mark McGwire’s mark of 49 home runs, set during the A’s slugger’s 1987 debut season.

Hall of Fame baseball writer Hal McCoy knows a thing or http://www.ky-oo32.com/derek-anderson-jersey-c-1_31.html two about our nation’s pastime. Tap into that knowledge with an email to halmccoy1@hotmail.com.
Q: Why are references made to the NFL prototype quarterback but never to the MLB prototype pitcher? — DAVE, Miamisburg/Centerville, Beavercreek.
A: What is an NFL prototype quarterback? Is it the straight drop-back version or one that can throw on the run and tuck it and run? Quarterbacks are human and they all are different. Not everybody can be Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers. It’s the same with baseball pitchers. What is a prototype? There is no such animal because they all approach their craft differently and some are great, some are average and some are bad.
»RELATED: Hamilton breaks thumb as Reds sweep Brewers
Q: How many Reds will win Gold Gloves this year? — J.R., Oxford.
A: Judging by the recent past, who knows? The Gold Glove award is voted upon by managers and coaches and they can’t vote for their own players. They all must have worn blindfolds when they played the Reds last year and didn’t give Billy Hamilton a Gold Glove. He is even better this year with his extraordinary catches and his arm. He doesn’t deserve a Gold Glove. He deserves a Platinum Glove. Third baseman Eugenio Suarez has played Gold Glove defense, but as long as the human suction cup that is Colorado’s Nolan Arenado is around, nobody but him wins the GG. Adam Duvall is a strong candidate, too. He is No. 1 in outfield assists in the majors and Hamilton is second. They won’t name two outfielders from a last-place team, so it is hoped they take off the blinders and vote for Hamilton.
»RELATED: Price says Reds have good foundation in place
Q: Of all traded Reds since 1960, who would make your “all-traded” team? — BEN, Butler Twp.
A: A great question, but a tough question http://www.ochomesnloans.com/james-bradberry-jersey-c-1_8.html because of so many trades. And some of the trades did benefit the Reds, even though the traded players did well with other teams. My team: Dan Wilson, catcher; Tony Perez, first base; Kurt Stillwell, second base; Ray Knight, third base; Frank Robinson, Paul O’Neill and Vada Pinson, outfield; Trevor Hoffman, right-handed pitcher; John Franco, left-handed pitcher.
Q: In all your years covering baseball have you ever seen a manager with four consecutive last-place finishes and three straight 90-plus-loss seasons retain his job? — TIM, Xenia.
A: First of all, if the Reds finish last this year it will only be the third straight time. And they haven’t reached 90 losses yet this season, which would be three straight. Fortunately, the powers-that-be must recognize that it isn’t Bryan Price’s fault. Perhaps by retaining him they are accepting the blame. The front office provides the players and made the decision to jettison so many accomplished major leaguers. And the persistent injuries to pitchers and catcher Devin Mesoraco aren’t his fault. The rebuild marches on and Price is carrying the flag.
Q: Will there be a place for Brandon Finnegan, Cody Reed and/or Anthony DeSclafani? — BILL, Dayton
A: If you mean next season, that’s a major dilemma. Manager Bryan Price said he wants the rotation picked by the end of this season. With the emergence of Luis Castillo, Robert Stephenson, Sal Romano and Tyler Mahle, all pitching extremely well, where do those other guys fit. DeSclafani has been hurt much of the last two seasons. Can they depend upon him? Is Homer Bailey all the way back? I’d guess that because the Reds have only one left-hander in the bullpen (Wandy Peralta) that Finnegan and/or Reed are destined for the bullpen. And you forgot Amir Garrett, Rookie Davis and Jackson James Bradberry Youth Jersey Stephens. Can the Reds use a 10-man rotation?
Q: If Bob Castellini names me manager of the Reds next year, Rasiel Iglesias is my opening day starter. Do you agree? — TIM, Dayton.

The big weakness for the Washington Nationals coming into the season was the bullpen, and everyone knew it. Even Dusty Baker admitted it took an http://www.officialredsprostore.com/brandon-phillips-jersey-c-1_12.html emotional toll on him and the rest of the team.
Before July 31, Washington’s bullpen combined for a 5.07 ERA while allowing a 1.43 WHIP. In 39 opportunities, they converted 25 saves, while blowing 14.
The offense, which has scored the second most runs in baseball, was building leads. The starting pitching, statistically the best in Major League Baseball, was more than holding its own in sustaining those leads.
Once the game was handed to the bullpen, it was anyone’s guess what would happen next. That uncertainty, which led to Baker and the rest of the team publicly complaining about the unit, put pressure on general manager Mike Rizzo to make a move, sooner rather than later.
The team then acquired Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson in a trade with the Oakland Athletics.
There were questions as to whether the Nationals had done enough to address the bullpen, specifically if they’d still try to add a closer to the roster.
Some thought the move was smart, with one league source texting right after the trade, “Nationals just sured up their bullpen! Madson is a gamer – off the charts human being.”
Still, questions remained.
Doolittle and Madson, while experienced, both came with uncertainty. Madson is 37 and has injury concerns. So does Doolittle. Neither were guarantees to make a significant impact, considering their injury histories.
At the last second on July 31, Washington pulled off a deal with the Minnesota Twins for Brandon Kintzler.
Since then, the bullpen has significantly improved.
Kintzler was surprisingly not thrown into the closer spot – he had 45 saves the last two seasons in Minnesota — but he has been strong in 18.1 innings of work since coming over, putting up a 2.45 ERA. While Kintzler has never been considered a strikeout pitcher, his numbers have fallen in Washington, collecting nine strikeouts (less than one every two innings).
Madson started off his Nationals career not allowing a run in his first 12 appearances until allowing two on Sunday. He did miss some http://www.officialredssale.com/desmond-jennings-jersey-c-1_17.html time due to a finger injury, but when on the field he has been strong.
Meanwhile, Doolittle provided the Nationals exactly what they needed: a legitimate shutdown closer.
He has converted 17 of 17 saves and has posted a 2.25 ERA with a 2.43 FIP and 24-6 strikeout-walk ratio.
His significance was on full display on September 8 in a game against the Philadelphia Phillies. Entering the ninth inning with a four-run lead, Shawn Kelley allowed a three-run home run to Maikel Franco to make it a one-run game. Doolittle entered and proceeded to strike out Tommy Joseph, Jorge Alfaro and J.P. Crawford to end the game.
Earlier in the season, the game could have ended with a different result. Instead, Doolittle entered in a high-pressure situation and closed things down.
With a much-improved bullpen, the Nationals are gaining on the collapsing Los Angeles Dodgers, who have lost 11 in a row and 16 of their last 17. They now trail the Dodgers by four games for the best record in the National League and if Los Angeles’ struggles continue, Washington could overtake L.A. for the No. 1 seed in the playoffs, giving them home field advantage throughout.
When Mike Rizzo made the moves to acquire Madson, Kintzler and Doolittle, he tried to fill a major need with a deep playoff run in mind.
Granted, they weren’t the flashy, big moves we’ve seen in the past, such as an Aroldis Chapman or David Robertson, but sometimes those aren’t the moves to make; instead, the ones that slide under the radar not only benefit a team now, but in Roger Maris Authentic Jersey the long haul. (Washington didn’t give up top-five prospects in either deal.)
Armed with a much stronger bullpen, the Nationals, one of baseball’s most complete teams, look like prime contenders to make a deep playoff run.

HOUSTON -- DeAndre Hopkins had been waiting for this day for a long time.
This past Thursday, the Houston Texans http://www.texansprosale.com/nick-novak-jersey-c-1_46.html wide receiver signed a five-year, $81 million extension with $49 million guaranteed, the largest amount of guaranteed money ever given to a wide receiver in the NFL.
With just a few exceptions, the Texans have extended their first-round picks before or during the fourth year of their rookie deals. After Hopkins had a breakout season in 2015, he left training camp and held out for one day, telling ESPN that he wanted “to be treated for what I'm worth.”
After the numbers Hopkins put up in his first four seasons in Houston -- 317 catches for 4,487 yards and 23 touchdowns -- he was expecting a big contract. And last week, he finally got that payday on the eve of his fifth NFL season.
“When you go out there and put up numbers like those, like I did the past four years, anything less than being top or being paid as a top receiver would be downgrading,” Hopkins said.
“But I knew this organization would come through. I didn’t want to play anywhere else but Houston, honestly. They took a chance http://www.hssmstore.com/julius-peppers-jersey-c-1_13.html and drafted me [with the] 27th pick overall, so I was appreciative of that.”
Hopkins had a dip in production in 2016 -- his worst season, with 78 catches for 954 yards and four touchdowns -- with quarterback Brock Osweiler throwing to him. But the Texans saw past what they think is an anomaly and rewarded Hopkins for his big numbers, especially because he’s done it with the quarterback carousel that has taken place in Houston.
Since 2013, Hopkins has caught a touchdown pass from eight different quarterbacks. According to Elias, only one other player in NFL history has done that. The Texans expect a big season out of Hopkins, and he and the team hope that Tom Savage can give him some stability at quarterback in 2017.
Hopkins said he was confident the contract would get done before the season started, because he knew the team believed in him and would take care of him.
“I was confident in this organization and this J.J. Jansen Youth Jersey team for believing in me,” Hopkins said. “I know what I did. I know the work I’ve put in over the past four years for them to do that.”

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Giants linebacker B.J. Goodson played 13 defensive snaps last season as a rookie. He topped that total by the midpoint http://www.ochomesnloans.com/devin-funchess-jersey-c-1_28.html of the first quarter of Sunday night's 19-3 loss to the Cowboys.
Making his first career start, Goodson was over the field - and rarely came off of it. The 2016 fourth-round pick played 73-of-74 defensive snaps and finished with 18 tackles (14 solo). Goodson also played 9-of-24 special teams snaps.
Goodson's playing time could dip when linebacker Keenan Robinson returns from a concussion. But Goodson was such a play-making presence on Sunday that he may maintain a role in sub packages even when Robinson is back in the lineup.
Here are some additional takeaways from Sunday's snap counts:
*The Giants didn't ease first-round pick Evan Engram into his debut. Engram played 48-of-56 snaps. Rhett Ellison logged 19 snaps, while third tight end Jerell Adams played just two snaps.
After playing almost exclusively in three-receiver sets last season, the Giants mixed up their personnel groupings on Sunday. Three-receiver sets still dominated (72 percent), but the Giants mixed in two-tight end groupings on the rest of the snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
Engram's playing time didn't yield big results, as he finished with four catches for 44 yards. He broke free for a 31-yard gain in the fourth quarter, but was otherwise held in check.
*Shane Vereen led the running backs with 31 snaps, but that total is inflated by the nine plays on the Giants' final desperation drive. Paul Perkins http://www.yadeos.com/jonathan-stewart-jersey-c-1_11.html started and played 17 snaps, managing just 16 yards on seven carries. Orleans Darkwa had three carries for 14 yards, but his playing time was typically limited (eight snaps) despite production. Fullback Shane Smith played eight snaps.
*Second-round pick Dalvin Tomlinson started at defensive tackle and played 44-of-74 snaps. Jay Bromley, who has been battling a knee injury, played just 14 defensive snaps. Tomlinson played well with four tackles.
The Giants continued last season's trend of leaning heavily on top defensive ends Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul. Vernon played all but two snaps, while Pierre-Paul was on the field for 66-of-74 snaps. Romeo Okwara played 18 snaps, mostly inside on passing downs, while Kerry Wynn played five snaps and rookie Avery Moss didn't see any action on defense.
Vernon had a sack when rushing from the inside, but it was an otherwise quiet night for the defensive ends against Dallas' formidable offensive line.
*The Giants top three cornerbacks - Eli Apple (74 snaps), Janoris Jenkins (73) and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (52) - got extensive playing time. The Giants rarely used four corners against the Cowboys' physical offense, as Michael Hunter played just three snaps and newly acquired Ross Cockrell didn't play on defense. When the Giants Jacoby Ellsbury Authentic Jersey used six defensive backs, they brought Andrew Adams (eight snaps) on as the third safety.
*Backup linebacker J.T. Thomas took Mark Herzlich's place as the top special teams player by logging 23-of-24 snaps in the kicking game.

Lisbon scored at least seven points in each quarter and held off the Hornets enroute to a 35-24 victory on opening night at Malvern.
The Hornets had a couple chances to score http://www.firestormkennel.com/kevin-johnson-jersey-c-1_27.html late in the fourth quarter, but failed to capitalize.
Trailing 28-16, Malvern moved the ball to the Lisbon 30 when quarterback Drew Hutchison threw a 69-yard pass to Jacob Foster. On third down from the 29-yard line, Hutchison’s pass was intercepted by Seth Stokes to kill the drive.
With just under seven minutes remaining in the game, the Hornets recovered a Blue Devil fumble on the 27-yard line. Four plays later Hutchison hit Austin Patterson for a touchdown. Patterson was successful on the two-point conversion to cut the margin to four points.
Lisbon had trouble with the snap on the next series, but scored with 1:30 left in the contest to stretch the lead to 35-24.
Malvern wasn’t finished yet.
The Hornets took the kickoff and marched to the Lisbon 28-yard line. Hutchison threw an incomplete pass that drew two penalty flags: illegal receiver downfield on the Hornets and pass interference on Lisbon.
With 54 ticks left on the clock, the Hornets lined up to replay first down at the 28. On third-and-10, Hutchison was flagged for intentional grounding. On the fourth down play, Malvern was flagged twice, resulting in an unsportmanlike conduct penalty and Lisbon took over with 17 seconds left in the game.
Lisbon scored on their first possession of the game when Camron Summers capped a 52-yard run with a touchdown. The extra point was good which gave Lisbon a 7-0 lead with 10:13 left in the first quarter.
Lisbon quarterback Logan Bell connected with Seth Stokes for a second Lisbon touchdown early in the second quarter. The extra point was good and Lisbon took a 14-0 lead.
Hutchison led the Hornets to first-and-goal on the 2-yard line midway through the second quarter. On third-and-goal on the one-yard line, Patterson http://www.newjersey1861.com/owa-odighizuwa-jersey-c-1_48.html scored. He also ran the ball in for the two-point conversion with 7:27 left in the half making the score 14-8.
With less than two minutes until half time, Lisbon’s Justin Sweeney scored on a 57 yard run. The extra point was good and the Blue Devils led 28-8 at the half.
At the start of the second half, the Blue Devils received the kick-off and had four quick downs before punting to the Hornets. While looking for a receiver, Drew Hutchison was sacked by Tyler Toot for a loss of seven yards. After two quick downs, the Hornets faced a fourth-and-25 and punted the ball.
On the first play of the drive, Lisbon fumbled and Malvern’s Sam Earl recovered. Unable to muster a first down, the Hornets punted. Lisbon was also unable to gain ground, and after Earl sacked Bell, they punted the ball.
The Hornets’ Charles McClure blocked the punt and Moser recovered the ball for a touchdown with 5:01 left in the third quarter. Foster took the ball in for the two point conversion making the score 28-16.
Hutchison was 11 for 31 for 186 yards and one interception. Patterson had 41 yards on 13 carries and caught a pass for 16 yards.
Foster hauled in two passes for 116 yards and Gavyn Potts caught four passes for 24 yards. Derk Hutchison carried the ball eight times for 23 yards.
Defensively for the Hornets, Christian Grimm had one solo tackle and 13 assists, Potts had six solo tackles and four assists and Sam Early had Tony Watson Womens Jersey two solo tackles, six assists and a tackle for a loss.
The Hornets host Bishop Rosecans Sept. 1 for a non-conference game. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.

Bruce was scratched from Wednesday's lineup http://www.officialredsprostore.com/anthony-desclafani-jersey-c-1_22.html against the White Sox with a stiff neck, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.
Bruce missed the previous four games due to neck stiffness, and while he was originally listed in Wednesday's lineup, it appears the issue is still bothering him enough to keep him out for a fifth straight contest.

New York Yankees starter CC Sabathia has been tailgating at Oakland Raiders games for three decades. It started when he was a 5-year-old http://www.texansprosale.com/julien-davenport-jersey-c-1_5.html and his dad, CC Sabathia Sr., hit the gas pedal at 2 a.m. for the six-hour drive from Vallejo, California, to the Los Angeles Coliseum.
Back then, little CC would sleep during the trip and be raring to go by 8 a.m. with his dad, his uncles and all his buddies.
"It was like a big caravan thing," Sabathia said.
As a 20-year-old rookie with the Indians in 2001, Sabathia bought his own season tickets for the Raiders, and he has been going ever since to tailgate at what is called "CC's Barbecue." He invites teammates, such as Aaron Hicks, and opponents, such as Matt Garza, who share the common bond of the Silver and Black. They join a large group, sometimes 50 or 60, for the barbecue, which is prepared by Sabathia's cousin, Darnell Jones, a chef.
The tailgaters wake up at 4 a.m. so they can be in line to enter the parking lot by around 6. Breakfast burritos are followed by games of dominoes and cards before watching the 10 a.m. PST games from around the league during lunch.
Just like their father did 30 years ago, Sabathia's kids -- CC and his wife, Amber, have two sons and two daughters -- run freely around the parking lot, throwing footballs and playing games.
"They are Raiders," Sabathia said. "You are not a casual Raider fan. They are bred. They are. It is a lot of fun to pass that on. They love it."
Sabathia does try to keep it low-key. His season tickets are located on the road side because it's a bit less crazy there, he said. A recovering alcoholic, Sabathia said there is no beer or liquor at his tailgates.
The 6-foot-6, 300-pound lefty is probably the biggest sports fan on the Yankees, but he isn't alone as a tailgater. Hicks, a potential All-Star outfielder, joins Sabathia for a game or two and also tailgates on his own, going to about five games a season. Also a Raiders fan, Hicks usually forgoes StubHub and uses the professional athlete’s go-to -- his agent -- to help locate tickets.
Last year, Hicks, who lives in Arizona, attended two http://www.ky-oo32.com/julius-peppers-jersey-c-1_14.html games with Sabathia. He relished the beans, collard greens, chicken, ribs, burgers, dogs and sausages at CC's Barbecue -- an absolute feast.
Hicks grew up in Long Beach, California, and his older brother, Joe, was a Raiders fan. When he was a teenager, it became a family tradition to watch the games. When Hicks doesn’t go with Sabathia, he attends games with Joe, a longshoreman. They arrive as early as 8:30 a.m. to tailgate for a 1 p.m. game.
“I just like hanging out with family and just watching the game,” Hicks said. “I’m away from family for so long, it is always fun to have something that we do together. Tailgating is one of the things that we do. I can definitely relate to being a fan. I understand being a fan.”
The Yankees’ tailgating and fandom aren't limited to the Raiders or NFL football.
Chase Headley shares a season-ticket plan for the Nashville Predators. During the Stanley Cup playoffs, he was living and dying with the action on the clubhouse televisions. He got the tailgating bug while at the University of Tennessee. He used to get to games about three-and-a-half hours early and enjoy some bratwurst, steaks and burgers.
“Something easy like that,” Headley said.
Because he and his wife have young children, it's more difficult to fit tailgating into their offseason schedule, but they try to squeeze in a UT game and a Titans game. Like Sabathia and Hicks, Headley keeps it positive in the stands.
“I’m not a booer,” Headley said. “The vast majority of fans are great. But it is always interesting when I hear somebody yelling at a game, and I am like, ‘You have no idea what is going on.’ Or a quarterback makes a throw, and it looks like there is no receiver there. He may have the right read and the receiver did the wrong thing. I always find that interesting.”
Reliever Dellin Betances had the chance to play college baseball at Vanderbilt, but when his boyhood team, the Yankees, picked him and offered him a million dollars, he never went south. He hasn't tailgated yet, but it's on his bucket list.
“It's something I want to do that I’ve never done,” Betances said. “I want to do it at one of those big schools in the South. I feel like that Harrison Butker Kids Jersey would be the ultimate experience -- any of those Alabama games.”
As for Sabathia, he supports the Raiders' move to Las Vegas, set for 2020. He has played in the Oakland Coliseum and knows it doesn’t compare to modern stadiums.
“By the time they get there, I’ll be retired,” Sabathia said. “It will be the same. It will be fun to go there for a weekend and hang out.”

The Texans are using a cash model for http://www.yadeos.com/devin-funchess-jersey-c-1_28.html their contracts as they manage the salary cap.
Instead of paying large signing bonuses and spreading out the salary-cap impact, the Texans are opting for roster bonuses in the first year shortly after the contracts were signed.
They did that for tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz's three-year, $21.5 million extension, free safety Andre Hal's three-year, $15 million contract, fullback Jay Prosch's three-year, $5.75 million contract and tight end Ryan Griffin's three-year, $9 million deal.
Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins' $81 million contract extension had a hybrid structure with a $7.5 million signing bonus, an $8.5 million roster bonus due Monday and fully guaranteed base salaries of $8 million in 2017, $12.5 million in 2018, a $12.5 million salary in 2019 guaranteed for injury at signing that becomes fully guaranteed at the end of the 2018 season.
Hopkins has nonguaranteed base salaries of $12.5 million, $13.5 million and $13.915 million in 2020, 2021 and 2022. After the first year of the contract, there's an annual salary de-escalator of $250,000.
Fiedorowicz got $10.097 million guaranteed http://www.arimtex.com/gary-sanchez-jersey-c-1_35.html through guaranteed base salaries of $3.097 million in 2017 and $5 million in 2018 along with a $2 million roster bonus to be paid Monday.

Carolina opens 2017 season at San http://www.firestormkennel.com/braxton-miller-jersey-c-1_26.html Francisco 49ers after first and only previous visit to four-year-old stadium was Super Bowl 50 loss
CHARLOTTE - When the Carolina Panthers open the 2017 season on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. at the San Francisco 49ers and Levi’s Stadium they’ll be at the venue of one of the franchise’s most disappointing losses.
The Panthers lost 24-10 to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 in their first on only previous visit to the four-year-old, 68,500-seat stadium.
But if you ask team leaders like quarterback Cam Newton or linebacker Luke Kuechly, their return to the Santa Clara stadium is no storyline.
“Who cares?” Newton said when asked about it Tuesday. “It’s a football game.”
Kuechly says he’s so focused on 2017, he has no interest in looking back to 2015.
“That was awhile ago and we’ve moved on from it,” Kuechly said.
Later, when reminded that the Panthers stayed in Santa Clara during their extended road trip to Seattle and Oakland just last season, Kuechly offered this:
“I think looking back ... would be detrimental to the guys. It’s the first game of ’17 against San Francisco and not the last game of ’15 and Denver.”
So how much has changed for the Panthers since that 2015 season in which they went 15-1 in the regular season then rolled to the NFC title before losing in the Super Bowl?
Thirteen starters remain from that team, including Newton and Kuechly. The others are running back Jonathan Stewart, center Ryan Kalil, guards Andrew Norwell and Trai Turner and tight end Greg Olsen on offense and free safety Kurt http://www.newjersey1861.com/wayne-gallman-jersey-c-1_9.html Coleman, linebackers Shaq Thompson and Thomas Davis, tackles Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short and end Charles Johnson on defense.
Thirteen other players also remain from the 2016 Super Bowl - quarterback Derek Anderson, kicker Graham Gano, wide receiver Devin Funchess, running backs Cameron Artis-Payne and Fozzy Whittaker, defensive back Colin Jones, long snapper J.J. Jansen, linebackers Ben Jacobs and David Mayo, offensive tackle Darryl Williams, tight end Ed Dickson and defensive linemen Kyle Love and Mario Addison.
Among the newcomers are rookie running back Christian McCaffrey, who was then a sophomore at Stanford. Ironically enough, McCaffrey attended Super Bowl 50 with his father Ed McCaffrey, a former Denver Broncos receiver.
Yet, no matter who is on the Panthers’ roster or the opponent or the venue of Sunday’s season-opener, the result has previously told much about how Carolina’s season may or may not play out.
Carolina has had six winning seasons in its history - and four of them came after a victory in the season-opener.
Only when the Panthers went 11-5 in 2005 Kent Tekulve Kids Jersey and 12-4 in 2013 did Carolina bounce back for a winning season after losing in Game 1. And of the 14 season-opening losses, nine began seasons that ended with a losing record.
Panthers head coach Ron Rivera is 2-4 in his six season-openers, with the wins coming in 2014

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton http://www.officialredsprostore.com/drew-storen-jersey-c-1_9.html wasn’t having any part of feeding the Sean McDermott homecoming storylines Wednesday.
No disrespect to the Buffalo Bills head coach and former Panthers defensive coordinator, but Newton says he has enough to worry about.
One thing Newton no longer concerns himself with: Keeping all of his receivers and pass-catchers happy. (It helps that there are no Steve Smith-type personalities demanding the ball.)
This became a topic this week because rookie running back Christian McCaffrey was targeted seven times in the season-opening victory at San Francisco – equaling the combined targets for starting receivers Kelvin Benjamin (five) and Devin Funchess (two).
Tight end Greg Olsen, shooting his fourth consecutive 1,000-yard receiving season, had two catches for 18 yards on four targets.
Newton says he used to worry about spreading http://www.officialredssale.com/devin-mesoraco-jersey-c-1_3.html the ball and appeasing the type-A personalities in the receivers meeting room.
Not anymore.
“Years past I’ve had that approach. But now I leave that solely up to the play-caller,” Newton said.
Offensive coordinator Mike Shula, the aforementioned play-caller, said the distribution of targets is influenced by the defensive looks. It’s also a process, with McCaffrey’s involvement (five catches for 38 yards and 13 carries for 47) opening up the field for other receivers.
Newton said he lets his reads dictate where he’s throwing, and he’s not going to play favorites.
“When that play call is called, it’s up for me to go wherever the defense dictates the ball to go,” he said. “And not picking any favors, not picking any type of person that hasn’t touched the ball, yet. I’ll leave that solely up to coach Shula and his staff.”
Rivera not worried
Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he understands Thurman Munson Youth Jersey that “guys want to have the ball in their hands” and want to make plays.
But Rivera said he didn’t have a problem with how the ball was shared in the 23-3 victory over the 49ers.

The Panthers’ 53-man roster was set for http://www.texansprosale.com/jay-prosch-jersey-c-1_47.html all of about two hours Saturday before it wasn’t anymore.
Panthers interim GM Marty Hurney pulled off a trade with his former assistant Brandon Beane, sending wideout Kaelin Clay to Buffalo and a seventh-round pick in 2019 in a deal that brought second-year cornerback Kevon Seymour to Charlotte.
Seymour, a sixth-round pick from USC last year, can play inside and outside corner and gives the Panthers more depth at a spot where they were a little thin. Seymour missed time during training camp with foot and shoulder injuries and struggled in coverage as a rookie.
Clay becomes the latest ex-Panther to jump on http://www.cinemakolik.com/derek-anderson-jersey-c-1_42.html the Charlotte-to-Buffalo train, following Bills head coach Sean McDermott, Beane and several players.
