I understand that just because McGwire couldn’t do it doesn’t mean Judge and Bellinger won’t do it.

McGwire was the baseball-media and fan darling that season after he seemed to come out of nowhere to launch homers at a historic pace. He had 33 long balls at the All-Star break, leading many, many people to fall victim to “just double it”-itis and declare that McGwire would probably finish somewhere near 66 home runs and destroy Roger Maris’ single-season record of 61 homers. Not only was McGwire unable Cheap Soccer Jerseys Size Xxl to maintain that torrid pace, but he fell off significantly in the second half, hitting just 16 homers to finish with 49 (though he did shatter the previous rookie record of 38 homers held by Frank Robinson).

And, yes, I understand that just because McGwire couldn’t do it doesn’t mean Judge and Bellinger won’t do it. Different players, different eras, different stadiums, yada, yada, yada. It’s just a call for perspective, a rebuff against What’s wrong with Aaron Judge? pieces if he’s not reached 40 homers by Aug. 31.

Though there have been some first player to and fastest player to Cheap Softball Jerseys For Girls stats associated with Judge and Bellinger so far, it’s unlikely that either will keep up their frenzied home run pace over the remaining 85-90 games of the season. Potential pitching adjustments aside, here’s the biggest reason: The grind will take hold. The Dog Days can be brutal and unforgiving to all players, but especially first-year guys not accustomed to a 162-game schedule.

Why he’s here: Lucroy’s numbers are way down from his career averages across the board, and he’s in danger of posting his lowest OPS since his rookie season in 2010. One of the better offensive catchers in baseball up until this year, Lucroy was supposed to be a key cog in a powerful Rangers lineup but has underachieved just like the entire team. There have been rumblings that the team is listening to offers for him, which shows just how far out of favor he’s fallen.

Guys like Max and Kershaw and the top pitchers in baseball

The Nationals had lost their previous three games, and Scherzer’s performance helped the team avoid a sweep at the hands of the Cardinals. Manager Dusty Baker casually dropped his ace in with some of the best in the history of the game. Again, matter-of-factly.

“Guys like Max and Kershaw and the top pitchers in baseball, that’s what they’re supposed to do, and they’re paid handsomely to do it, and they take pride in it, stopping streaks,” Baker said. “I’ve seen that a lot with the great pitchers, Greg Maddux, Roger Clemens, Nolan Ryan, J.R. Richard. Those guys were known to stop streaks.”

He’s on the All-Star team, and barring some rather stunning surprise, he’ll start Cheap Quality Soccer Jerseys the game for the Nationals League. He deserves the nod, because here’s the thing: Scherzer has never been better than he is right now, and that’s really saying something. Remember, this is a guy who has won the Cy Young Award twice (once in each league), with the Tigers in 2013 and the Nationals in 2016.

He’s been so much better this year than he was in either of those Cy Young seasons. Let’s look:

Bell earned the Steelers’ franchise tag this season, but has yet to Cheap Reversible Basketball Jerseys sign it in hopes of working out a contract extension with the only NFL team he’s ever known. Should things go sour, he could take the one-year, $12.12 million deal and look for employment elsewhere in 2018.

Why he’s here: The league seems to have adjusted to Odor after his breakout 2016 season, and he’s yet to adjust back. Like his teammate Lucroy, Odor has underachieved considerably with an OPS that right now is 162 points lower than his total from last year. He’s never been an on-base demon, but this year he’s striking out at an alarming rate and managed just one walk the entire month of June. He’s dug himself quite a hole in the first half, and he’s yet to find the answers to get himself out.

Dickerson has also seen a big jump in productivity this year.

He came over in a trade last year with the Rockies, but he didn’t live up to lofty expectations in his first campaign because of injuries. He also suffered from plantar fasciitis in his left foot at the end of the 2015 season. The injuries made him experiment with different mechanics during spring training and throughout the year, resulting in a subpar year for him.

“I tinkered a little bit, tried to play through injuries, and luckily made it out of the year with pretty decent numbers that a lot of people wouldn’t mind having,” Dickerson said. “So I maximized my offseason and came into this offseason ready to go.”

There’s a case to be made that the Knicks’ best 3-on-3 team could come from the 1990s, and while Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis would also be a scary combination, this group is responsible for both of the Knicks’ NBA championships and these three players, especially Frazier and Reed, are unquestionably among the best players in franchise history.

Frazier averaged 19, 6 and 6 for his career as a 6-4 point guard, while DeBusschere averaged a double-double in the final 12 years of his career. Reed averaged 21.7 points and 13.9 rebounds per game while shooting 50 percent from the field during New York’s first championship season. All three Cheap Professional Jerseys players were inducted into the Hall of Fame.

McCants played only five NBA seasons, and he barely cracked Cheap Professional Sports Jerseys double-digit scoring. Yet, he belongs on this list. Here is why: At 32 years old, he is the youngest player in the Big3. He was also the first overall pick in the league’s draft two months ago, so he clearly has earned respect.

Honestly, he should probably still be in the NBA, or at least made it longer than five seasons. Tough to fault a guy who had to learn how to be a professional by playing for Minnesota and Sacramento.

Rob Gronkowski denies racking up giant $102,000 bar tab at casino

Rob Gronkowski has a message to everyone who thinks he dropped a small fortune on booze over the weekend: Don’t buy into the headlines.

In a tweet Tuesday, the Patriots tight end disputed a TMZ report that said he spent more than $102,000 on alcohol at a Connecticut casino, claiming he would rather donate such a massive chunk of change to a much more noble cause.

Despite his love of alcohol and having a good time, Gronkowski has proven to be more on the frugal side. In his 2015 book “It’s Good to be Gronk,” he said he lives off his endorsement deals and not any of his NFL paycheck.

Lydon is a shooter, through and through. He has NBA 3-point range from the jump, and he’ll help space the floor next to Nikola Jokic in the frontcourt. Still, this team needs defense more than anything. Lydon has tools on that end, but has yet to be a fully effective defender. We’ll see how this works out.

The Magic dealt this pick to Philadelphia so that the Sixers could pick Cheap Dri Fit Jerseys Pasecniks, a 7-foot-plus Latvian who can rim run and defend well due to excellent mobility at his size. I’m not sure he fills a need for the Sixers going forward, given their depth in the frontcourt, but if they get rid of Jahlil Okafor and Richaun Holmes, he’ll be a nice fit as a backup for Joel Embiid.

This is my pick for breakout player of the season in college hoops. A lot of NBA teams were disappointed when Brown pulled his name out of this year’s draft, as he’d have been a great guy for a team to take a shot on in the 20s as a 6-5 elite athlete who also has some point guard skills. Miami Cheap Epl Jerseys is going to be good this season, and Brown is the guy that will lead them.

there isn’t so much as a swipe at the ball here.

Remember that incredible sequence where it felt like Curry dribbled for a week until he finally got around James for a nifty layup? Check out where Irving was standing and see if you can find the man he was guarding.

Green is closer to the half-court line than the 3-point line. Irving is obviously not known for his defense, but there isn’t so much as a swipe at the ball here.

As much as Golden State’s shooting spreads the floor and forces the opposition to make brutal choices, Cleveland’s help defenders must be conscious of individual matchups and spacing when deciding to help and recover. We saw what Curry’s gravity can do to the Cavs in Game 1, but sometimes you have to remember the first rule on defense. Stop the ball.

“He is a special player, special human being. I’ve probably said it many, many times before,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich told reporters about Ginobili on Monday. “He’s one of those guys who becomes the heart and soul of your team because of his exemplary competitiveness.

“He’s really an anomaly in that regard. He has that same foot-on-your-neck attitude that Kobe [Bryant] and Michael [Jordan] had, those types of guys. Magic [Johnson] and Larry [Bird]. He’s got the same attitude and plays with that same fire. He always has.

“He’s been a huge part of any success that we’ve had. To see him Cheap Braves Jerseys at this age, giving us games here and there that just take you back. It’s been a thrill.”

Ginobili, 39, is a four-time NBA champion and spent his whole Cheap College Jerseys career with the Spurs since being drafted out of Argentina. The two-time All-Star hasn’t been the most flashy of players but he uses his smarts and quickness to create havoc for his opponents.

We slowed the game down within the realms of the way we were playing

Facing a 3-0 deficit on their home floor, the Cavaliers came out determined to avoid the sweep and extend the series. They put forth a scintillating first quarter, with a 49-point onslaught (an NBA playoff record) from which the Warriors could never really recover.

“We slowed the game down within the realms of the way we were playing,” Cavs guard Kyrie Irving said. “But it was still high tempo. We got to the free-throw line, we got in the bonus early, and then we got some easy free throws and some easy ones. And then you include that with our pace, it was hard for them to keep up with us tonight. It’s the first time all series, but we just kept attacking, kept attacking and understood that they were never going to quit.”

For the first time in this series, the Cavaliers got balance from their lineup. In each of the previous games, at least one starter had been held scoreless. But here, the Cavaliers made 24 3-pointers. Irving was unstoppable, with 40 points on 15-for-27 shooting, and LeBron James notched another triple-double (31 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists), passing Magic Johnson for most triple-doubles all Cheap Bike Jerseys steelers_124time in the NBA Finals.

Ballard stuck to the familiar “defense wins championships” adage in his first Cheap Barcelona Jerseys year on the job, leaving a clear blueprint for the future. Should his acquisitions pay off, the Colts can be expected to invest big on their offense next offseason. This makes sense; Andrew Luck is only 27 and under contract for four more seasons after 2017, so playmakers can wait. Meanwhile, the team’s upcoming schedule includes several opponents with lackluster offenses that can be ground down by the team’s latest additions.

The legacy of Iguodala’s 13-year NBA career is now wrapped up in his meetings with James

Seems like nothing can go right for the Spurs — Dejounte Murray had an excellent opportunity at an easy basket on the fast break, only to be denied at the rim by Kevin Durant, who seemingly can do all things.

Golden State leads 51-34 with less than five remaining in the half. The Spurs are letting this one get away from them.

Moreover, Iguodala, who was once an All-Star in Philadelphia and the expected heir apparent to Sixers legend Allen Iverson, has seen his career morph into that of unsung hero and supersub, a guy who made the sacrifice to accept bench duties in Golden State. But he reached his pinnacle in the 2015 Finals thanks to his exceptional defensive effort on James, which earned Iguodala an upset selection as the series MVP.

The legacy of Iguodala’s 13-year NBA career is now wrapped up in his meetings with James. Consider that, after the first four games of last year’s finals, Iguodala was discussed as a legitimate candidate to repeat as the NBA Finals MVP. He had etched his niche as kryptonite for James, who averaged 24.8 points and 5.8 turnovers in those first four games last June.

In Game 2 of the series, for example, Iguodala was James’ primary defender on 17 possessions, and James was 1 of 3 with seven turnovers on those possessions. Through four games of the 2016 finals, the Cavs had been outscored with James on the floor by 6.6 points per 100 possessions.

But after James exploded in Game 5 (notably, with Green missing due to suspension), a Cheap Authentic Jerseys steelers_128Game 6 back injury sapped Iguodala’s effectiveness. In the last three games of the series, James Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys scored 41, 41 and 27 points, and shot 50.6 percent from the field, with just 2.7 turnovers.

Stefon Diggs looks to be much healthier

Kyle Rudolph put up the best numbers of his career — his 83 catches were third-best in the league for tight ends, and his 840 yards were fourth-best. Yet, again, as is the case with Bradford’s precedent-setting season of safe calls and throws, repeating that isn’t ideal. (He was targeted more than any tight end, and was tops on the Vikings.)

They started in the right direction in last year’s draft by taking Laquon Treadwell in the first round, then this offseason put pressure on him to take a Year 2 leap when the team signed Michael Floyd in free agency.

Stefon Diggs looks to be much healthier, and Adam Thielen looks to match a big season last year. They weren’t lamenting losing Cordarrelle Patterson to free agency for a reason: As much as they miss him on returns, they have depth at receiver that they can exploit, and that’s what Shurmur does well.

Deion Jones exemplifies that speed. He used it to turn two of his three picks last season into scores.

That speed sets Jones, and the rest of his unit, apart.

“Deion, I don’t know if there’s a faster linebacker in the NFL,” linebackers coach Jeff Ulbrich said. “De’Vondre is not far behind, and then to add Duke. And Josh Keyes has speed. LaRoy Reynolds has speed. I mean, everybody — Jermaine Grace has speed. I’d put our group against about anybody when it comes Cheap Braves Jerseys to that.”

They added to that speed this offseason, bringing in Takkarist McKinley and Duke Riley Cheap Blank Hockey Jerseys in the draft. McKinley ran a blazing-fast 4.59 40-yard dash for a 6’2, 250-pound man. Riley, who is projected to take over the starting weakside linebacker role, was a top performer at the combine in the 40-yard dash with a 4.58, as well as the three-cone drill with a 6.89-second performance.

McKinley should help with the Falcons’ pass rush, building on what Vic Beasley did last season. Riley is already penciled in as the starting weakside linebacker.

Former Cowboys QB Troy Aikman gets engaged to girlfriend Capa Mooty

The strong side will have a big change as healthy 2016 sixth-rounder Devante Bond for now is projected to replace free agent Daryl Smith. The Bucs, however, will give rookie third-rounder Kendell Beckwith every opportunity to win the job, given the kind of immediate results it got from fellow LSU product Alexander two seasons ago. Beckwith needs to first show he’s recovered enough from a torn ACL to get the necessary reps.

To support Alexander and David and not overwhelm Bond or Beckwith, it is likely to remain more of a rotational position with Jacquies Smith, Adarius Glanton and Cameron Lynch fighting for the rest of the snaps outside.

Former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman got engaged during his European vacation on Friday.

Aikman posted news of his upcoming nuptials on Friday with his now-fiancee Capa Mooty.

Most NFL fans know the answer to the first question. The second question, however, is the source of endless talking head debates. After Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, nobody is necessarily safe depending on who you ask. Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson are just a few that get put up against that test.

Sporting News ranked the starting quarterbacks from 1-32 for the 2017 season, and we used several different guidelines.

We looked at last year’s stats and career stats. We factored in win-loss records, winning percentages and playoff victories. We did some head-to-head arguments. Finally, we propped every quarterback Cycling Cheap Jerseys up against the Flacco scale in honor of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who is the flashpoint for those “elite” debates. Quarterbacks who scored four or more “Flaccos” are in Detroit Tigers Cheap Jerseys that elite discussion.

Jamaal Charles wants to prove he can be ‘the man’ for the Broncos

Jamaal Charles played in just eight games in the past two seasons. He’s still not cleared to fully participate in OTAs yet, either. Still, on Monday he said he can be “the man” in the Broncos’ running game.

“If I’m not going to be the man, why am I here? I should be at home sitting on the couch,” Charles said.

Charles signed with the Broncos after being waived — or “fired,” as he put it — by the Kansas City Chiefs, the team that drafted him in the third round of the 2008 draft.

On May 23, Roger Goodell brushed off the situation by saying that Brady hadn’t been diagnosed with one last season. He also emphasized that it was an issue that the league was still working on, and one they believe they have made progress on.

“The responsibility is a shared responsibility, for our teams, our medical professionals, the players themselves,” Goodell said. “We put in a lot of safeguards that I think are incredibly important in changing the culture. That’s what we’ve done. There is still more work to be done.”

Goodell also said players were much better about self-reporting concussions. “You really see players now saying, ‘I don’t feel right, I need to get a medical exam.’ You see teammates that say, ‘You know what, he doesn’t seem right’ to me or coaches. All of that is an advancement.”

Bundchen’s comments were made out of care for her husband. She wants him to live a healthy and happy life, but the unfortunate side effects of football are an understandable cause Cheap Custom Hockey Jerseys for concern. That’s even more true when you consider that there’s still plenty we don’t know about brain injuries.

“I am planning on having him be healthy and do a lot of fun things when we’re, like, 100, I Cheap Dan Marino Jerseys hope,” Bundchen said in May.

Belichick is right that it’s up to team doctors to diagnosis concussions. But everybody involved in the game — whether it’s players, coaches, or doctors — needs to make sure that concussion protocol is being followed.
