Adam Greenberg finally gets his at-bat


(US Presswire)

Although it wasn’t quite a fairy-tale ending, pinch hitter can now rest easy. He’s gotten his one official major-league at-bat.

Tuesday night, Greenberg stepped iager.Lacazette broke a two month scoring drought in victory over Newcastle United on Sunday.He said: “He (Arteta) is, how can I say, he demands a lot of things.”I wouldn’t say he is strict, but he knows what he wants and when it is not good we knownto the box against one of the front-runners for the NL Cy Young award, ace .y in the transfer market.Moore is an avid believer in integrating players from the youth setup into the first team.And he knows it is something that manager Jurgen Klopp wants to do as well.Moore thinks that unearthing gems in such a way can save hun

Greenberg took a strike, before swinging through two knuckleballs to conclude the at-bat — a three-pitch strikeout.

Still, Greenberg had an ear-to-ear smile as he entered the dugout. In a meaningless game between two ballclubs long since eliminated from the playoff picture, the result of Greenberg’s at-bat was ancillary. The pool captain Jordan Henderson says the club are determined to go one better next season in the Premier League.The Reds finished second behind Manchester City, despite finishing with a record 97 points.Henderson said: “A club of this history and magnistory is he got an at-bat and can now move on.

Also, there are some out there adamantly against this move by the Marlins. Yes, it was a publicity stunt in a sense, but I don’t think we have to worry about a slippery-slope situation (“where do you draw the line?”) because Greenberg’s situation was unique. He only saw one big-league pitch in his life and it hit him in the head. If you want to say “so we are going to give an extra chance to every guy who gets hit in the head by the only big-league pitch he sees?” My answer would be “why the hell not?” There’s a reason this story gained steam, and it’s because the odds of it happening are so astronomical.

Here is Greenberg’s mother reacting to his at-bat:

Royals’ plight highlights dearth of talent at catcher


How difficult is it to find a catcher? All you have to do is look to the Royals to see how much a good, young catcher is valued, and how difficult it is to find a replacement.Earlier this month, the team signed 21-year-old to a five-year deal (with team options for three more) after he appeared in just 39 games on the big-league lnited among several Premier League clubs.That’s according to Fussball Transfers which reports United, Brighton Hove & Albion, Southampton and Leicester City have all had scouts at the Jan Breydel Stadium this season to check on the 22 year-old Nievel. It was a solid plan, Perez is, by all accounts, the team’s catcher of the future and locking him in early at a reasonable rate could help the team long-term.That seemed to be all well and good — especially paired with veteran — until Perez suffered torn cartilage in Perez’s left knee. He will undergo an operation in Los Angeles on Friday. The team’s other catcher on the 40-man roster besides Perez and Pena, , also suffered meniscus tear in his knee. He had surgery on Feb. 27 is out indefinitely. Meanwhile, the team is looking for a stop-gap measure and the pickings appear slim. — free agent Ivan Rodriguez (40), Arizona’s Craig Tatum (29), Cincinnati’s (z Sarsfield have warned Manchester City over their price for Thiago Almada.City are seeking to sign the attacking midfielder for €10m before loaning him out to Sporting CP. The two clubs are in advanced talks over a formal partnership.However, Vele35) and Colorado’s (34). Those four seem to fit into what manager Ned Yost, a former catcher himself, is looking for in a replacement.”There’er, who is the captain of the B side, signed a five year deal when he joined the club. There was a clause which allowed Barça to cancel the remaining two years on his deal but they have informed the youngster he will be part of their plans for next s not another Sal out there that you can get,” Yost told reporters. “There’s just not. The next-best thing is probably some semblance of a catch-and-throw guy who can hit a little bit, but that guy is going to cost you a young prospect. We don’t want to do that.”So you either get a guy who can hit like a son-of-a-gun and can’t catch, or a guy who can catch like a son-of-a-gun who you hope can at least be a good situational-type hitter who mixes in a few hits. I’d rather go that route.”The team has just two other catchers in addition to Pena in camp in and . Neither are on the 40-man roster and have limited big-league experience. Ramirez, 27, has played in 45 big-league games for the Rangers, while Clark, 30, has never played in a big-league game.

When the Giants have the ball 

The Giants have been handed a raw deal over these last two weeks. Not only are they facing extremely tough defenses in the in Week 5 and now the Patriots in Week 6, but the injury bug has taken a big bite out of Daniel Jones’ offensive weapons. As we mentioned above, Barkley, Gallman, Engram and Shepard are all slated to mss this contest and they represent New York’s two leading rushers and two leading receivers on the year thus far. With that in mind, Daniel Jones will be playing on Thursday with one hand tied behind his back, and it may not exactly the same type of offensive attack that we’ve seen in weeks past.

Against Minnesota, Jones played far better than his stat line (21 of 38 for 182 yards, a touchdown and an interception) would suggest. The rookie was under pressure throughout the afternoon by Minnesota’s front, and the New York offensive line didn’t do him many favors as he was sacked four times on the day. Jones was able to bail that unit out on occasion as he was able to sense pressure, roll out and avoid the sack, but what was most impressive was his poise in the pocket overall. Jones was particularly strong on third down, converting on 50% of those situations against the Vikings. 

He also had a beautiful touchdown throw to fellow rookie for 35 yards and put it in a spot where only he could get it in stride. While Jones may be down a few weapons, he’s built up a rapport with Slayton and will have for his second game since coming back from suspension, so there are still some playmakers for him in what is unquestionably his toughest test of the season.  

What is a concern for Jones, particularly against a veteran defense like the Patriots, is the rookie’s cadence at the line. It appears to be a bit elementary, which allowed the Vikings (especially vs. ) to have fantastic jumps off the line of scrimmage to pressure Jones. This is certainly fixable and really is just part of the growing pains of a young quarterback, but something to note heading into this matchup.  

As for the running game without Barkley and Gallman, New York will trot out Jonathan Hilliman and , who combined for 35 yards on 12 carries in Week 5. 

When the Patriots have the ball 

While New England’s defense has deservingly received a lot of praise throughout the first month-plus of the season, the Patriots offense has been somewhat trying to figure out their identity. 

Throughout their Super Bowl run last season, Bill Belichick and Josh McDanielser Frank Lampard has ruled Callum Hudson-Odoi and Antonio Rudiger out of Wednesday’s Champions League meeting with Valencia.The pair did not travel to Spain as they continue to recover from injury.He told a press conference: “Callum Hudson-Odoi is no leaned on the running game, especially late in the season with and company. Up until last week, the backfield hadn’t produced to the level the team had hoped this season. Against the in Week 5, New England did seem to turn a corner as Michel ran for 91 yards on 5.7 yards per carry, including a 14-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to really put the game out of reach. 

Because New England was able to run over the Redskins, it doesn’t exactly mean that all their problems are solved as Washington has one of the worst run defenses in the league. That said, part of the Patriots’ problem out of the backfield this season was their predictability. 

When defenses see in the backfield it’s an obvious pass situation, and it’s an obvious run play with Michel is out there. That’s why we’ve been able to see more overall success from a healthy when he’s in the backfield thanks to his versatility running between the tackles and catching out the backfield. With Michel specifically, his lack of prowess as a receiver allows linebackers to cheat a bit off the snap as there are less situations to account for. 

This is why Michel catching all three of his targets last Sunday for 32 yards and James White rushing for 26 yards on 4.3 yards per carry is significant. If they can show a consistent threat in those categories, it should give the overall unit more success and a bit of mystery at the line with whoever is in the backfield. 

As for the receivers, the unit is a bit banged up with first-round pick on injured reserve and (hamstring) out for this game, but and are still at the helm for . Each are coming off outings against the Redskins where they were able to average over 11 yards per reception. 

What was interesting in this latest win was the utilization of tight ends and . They combined for just three catches but gained 61 yards and a touchdown. This isn’t Rob Gronkowski-like production, but the fact that LaCosse is finally healthy and that the team decided to release veteran suggests that this is a budding unit with those two and could be in line for more work against New York. 

Patriots 36-6 over Giants

Patrick Mahomes in ‘Madden 20’ might be the most unfair character in the video game franchise since Michael Vick


‘Madden 20’ won’t officially be released for a few weeks, but early looks at gameplay indicate that could be a real problem.

The quarterback is coming off an incredible unofficial rookie season in which he threw 50 touchdown passes, led Kansas City to the AFC Championship game and was awarded MVP. The breakout year led to the 23-yen Persie.Greenwood struck again for United in victory over Newcastle United on Thursday night.Kleberson said, “Mason Greenwood is very similar to Van Persie how he plays. They have a similar technique in the way they strike the ball. I saw Van Persar-old not only earning the honor of highest rated QB in this year’s Madden (he’s a 97 overall) but he’s also the video game’s cover athlete.

From some of the early looks that have trickled onto social media prior to the game’s release, it appears that Mahomes is basically an unbeatable cheat code. Just check out the absurd arm strength on display in these clips.

Combine that arm strength with Mahomes’ vision and mobility and he’s most certainly going to be one of the most frustrating, annoying and unfair players to play against in the game. The thing is, though, you can’t really blame Madden too much here… Mahomes is basically a cheat code in real life, too.

Sure, maybe the scrambling off-balance heave of 60-plus yards is a bit ridiculous, but Mahomes did things on the field last year that you would think wouldn’t even be possible in a video game, so who’s to really say? I mean, the no-look pass from last season probably would nited manager Mourinho has been offered a three-year deal to take charge at Roma. The Portuguese will only take up the role if Roma qualify for next season’s Champions League. The capital city club are currently fifth, one point off Atalanta in the fhave resulted in thousands of broken controllers. 

Turns out EA Sports has incorporated it into this year’s game, so your controllers have officially been put on notice. 

From the initial looks, it appears very possible that Mahomes could be the most unfair and dominant Madden character since the days of Michael Vick in Madden 2004. Vick also had the cover of that year’s game and he was capable of doing things like this:

If you played with or against him in that year’s installment, you know how insanely unfair Vick was both on the ground and through the air. That version of Vick is generally regarded as one of the most dominant sports video game characters of all-time, right up alongside Bo Jackson in ‘Tecmo Bowl.’

Could Mahomes be joining that elite club with ‘Madden 20’? We’ll probably have to wait until the game is officially out on August 2nd to know for sure, but the early footage points to the est of the action on the pitch, here’s a quick roundup.Two matchdays into the 2019/20 LaLiga Santander and just two sides have a 100% record. Sevilla stayed perfect with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Granada on Friday night thanks to a goal from summer plausibility. 

49ers reportedly make Kwon Alexander the highest-paid inside linebacker in football


One of this offseason’s top defensive free agents has been taken off the market. According to several reports, the are signing former linebacker to a four-year deal worth $54 million.

The average annual value of Alexander’s contract ($13.5 million) is the highest of any inside linebacker in the league, according to Spotrac, surpassing by over $1 million. The $27 million guarantee for Alexander is similar what Kuechly was guaranteed on his deal. 

Alexander does not turn 25 years old until later this offseason, and during his first three years in the league he played very well for the Bucs, even making the Pro Bowl iAston Villa have completed the signing of Club Brugge striker Wesley Moreas for a club-record fee.The move is subject to an international clearance, which Villa are confident of securing because the Brazilian has played in the Champions League.The 22-year-old scored 17 goals last season and was also a target for Newcastle United.Sky Sports report Villa parted with £22m to sign Wesley.n 2017 despite playing in only 12 games. Alexander averaged 111 tackles (8 for loss), two sacks, and seven passes defensed per year during those three seasons, displaying high-level talent. He suffered a torn ACL early in the 2018 season, though, and sat out for the rest of the year. 

The contract for Alexander continues a trend of the 49ers getting out there with big, surprising deals early in free agency, which they did with fullback Kyle Juszcyk two years ago and running back last year.

The 49ers are expected to be major players on the open market and could still add someone like star safety , who is reportedly seeking a deal that makes him the highest-paid safety in the league. It remains to be seen whether the Niners or Thomas’ supposed preferred team — the — will match his price. 

LOOK: Adrian Peterson appears irate at Sean Payton over playing time vs. Vikings


The expectation for Monday night’s game between the and was a heavy dose of , who was returning to Minnesota for his first-ever game as a player for someone other than the Vikings. 

That … did not happen. Midway through the third quarter, Peterson had just five carries for 16 yards. As one might expect, he was less than thrilled about the situation. 

Peterson was spotted by ESPN cameras walking down the Saints sideline behind coach Sean Payton, giving him major-league side eye, presumably because he has been seen more on the sidelines than on the field. 

Peterson proceeded to follow Payton for several yards, eventually getting the coach’s attention. When Payton turned around, Peterson dropped a “you should let me play or else” face. 

The whole thing was sort of a microcosm into the Saints season. 

They have lost a bunch of players to injury, swore they were going to build up the defense and run the ball a bunch. Instead they’re just a bad defensive team that relies too much on .
