Joe and Sam look ahead to the MLB trade deadline, discussing several potential trade candidates including Mike Minor and Nicholas Castellanos.
The trade deadline in MLB, for the first time a sole one, is just nine days away and needless to say a lot of star pitchers from underachieving teams are on the market. With Madison Bumgarner off market for now, attention turns to Texas Rangers ace Mike Minor – second in Earned Run Average in the American League with 2.86.
The NFC North looks set to be the tightest division in the NFL in 2019. The Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings all have serious – and realistic – playoff ambitions, while the Detroit Lions are still in contention, having picked up six wins in 2018.
Everyone has overlooked Boston and as the old saying goes, work in silence and let your success be your noise. I'd say that could be the case in the Garden this year.
It seems a long time since the Minneapolis Miracle now, doesn't it? But since Stefon Diggs reeled in one of the most memorable plays in football history, the Vikings have been a bit of a mystery.
Kyle Korver will sign a one-year deal on the veteran's minimum with the Milwaukee Bucks, as reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Veteran Kyle Korver was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies in the trade that saw the Utah Jazz acquire Mike Conley. At the start of July, he was moved again, being sent to the Phoenix Suns along with Jevon Carter. Phoenix soon waived Korver, making him one of the most desired pieces on the free agent market.
The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired left-handed starting pitcher Drew Smyly, as reported by Jim Salisbury.
Where to begin? With the league going into overdrive with so much happening during free agency and so many ridiculous trades happening you might have missed a thing or two, so many teams will be shaping up differently next year, one of these teams will be the Portland Trail Blazers.
A career that has no shortage of critical moments and pivotal decisions, not much is as important to an NFL player as entering his contract year. For most, it's a key time to prove to any interested franchise, including their own, they are worth paying big bucks for. For others, it's last chance saloon to prove to their current employers they are just good enough to be retained.
