Schilling now has his own radio program for Bretibart called Whatever it Takes.

Josh Gibson, referred to by some as the black Babe Ruth, was among the first Negro Leaguers selected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in the early 1970s. Poles, who was known as the black Ty Cobb, remains a more obscure figure, though baseball researcher John Holway noted that Paul Robeson grouped Poles, Joe Louis, Jack Johnson and Jesse Owens as the four greatest black athletes of all-time. Poles’ known, likely forever incomplete statistics available via Baseball-Reference.com hint at his greatness: a .318 batting average and .386 on-base percentage over parts of 11 seasons between 1910 and 1923.

The debate over ESPN’s political leanings — and whether it punishes political conservatives such as Schilling — has become a hot-button issue in recent years.

NFL free agency: Broncos should do whatever it takes to acquire Tony Romo

The flurry of big-money free agent signings at guard Thursday didn’t escape the notice of at least one NFL head coach.

How many points do you think (Kevin) Zeitler and (Ronald) Leary score over the next five years? he texted me.
Barring an end-zone fumble recovery, the likelihood is zero.

Brandon Flowers Limited Jersey I’d list the odds of the team that signed Leary reaching Super Bowl 52 as being only slightly better with its current quarterback situation.

That’s why the Denver Broncos must acquire Tony Romo.

While Hopper won’t participate in Clemson’s pro day Thursday, he will hold a private workout there Wednesday with about a dozen NFL teams.

What he has that NFL teams like is speed, with a 40-yard dash time he says he expects to be under 4.4 seconds. He also prides himself on being an adept route runner.

Hopper realizes he likely won’t be drafted, but that doesn’t mean the talent isn’t there. Rob Henry, the head of pro and collegiate business at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., where Hopper has been training, claims Hopper’s skill set is on par with other NFL prospects.
Tim Brown Limited Jersey
Germone is just as good as anyone, Henry said. He’s got all the skills needed to be an NFL wide receiver. He has everything you need. It’s just a matter of continuing to improve and being consistent with his play. That will earn him playing time once he gets into a minicamp and, hopefully, training camp.

Bucs GM Jason Licht: Team ‘very happy’ with Doug Martin

Despite his suspension for violating the NFL’s drug policy, the Bucs are pleased with Doug Martin’s progress.

The veteran running back entered a drug treatment facility after being suspended four games at the end of last season, but has cleaned up his act since getting help and managed to maintain his team’s commitment.

“We’ve been happy with the trajectory he’s on,” Bucs general manager Jason Licht said, via FloridaFootballInsiders.com. “I’ve said that before but it’s the truth. He has the right mindset right now and he looks good physically.

“We still have some time there but just two years ago he was the second leading rusher in the NFL. Within the building here, we feel comfortable with our guys, and that includes Doug.”

The Bucs could have moved on from Martin, who still has three games to serve in 2017, but the team did not select a running back through the first four rounds of the NFL Draft. Tampa Bay selected Alabama tight end O.J. Howard in the first round, Texas A&M safety Justin Evans in the second, before taking Penn State wide receiver Chris Godwin and LSU linebacker Kendell Beckwith in the third round.

Tampa Bay did select Jeremy McNichols, a running back from Martin’s alma mater of Boise State, in the fifth round.

The Bucs re-signed Jacquizz Rodgers, who is expected to fill in for Martin through the first three games of the 2017 season while getting spelled by Charles Sims.

“With Doug we’re just going to keep on pace where we’re at and keep on monitoring,” Licht said. “We’ve had great conversations with him. We still have a few rounds left here, so there could be a back.

“But there could be a wide receiver. Any position really. Until you get them in here, until you get first-hand knowledge of them out there on the field and in the meeting room and see them in a preseason game you can’t predict if anybody is going to beat anybody out. But I’d just say we’re very happy with the way things are going with Doug.”

Washington’s most glaring issue is the back end of the bullpen

Corey Seager Limited Jersey Pike signed baseball’s first professional contract in 1866, $20 with Philadelphia and ranks among the game’s brightest early stars. But baseball’s first league, the National Association didn’t come along until 1871. There’s been some dissension in the historical community about whether to treat this short-lived league as a professional circuit. The first league everyone agrees on, the National League, didn’t come along until 1876. By then, Pike’s best years were almost behind him, though he shined a few more years. Early seasons were also considerably shorter than they are today. Thus, Pike’s stats, at least as officially recorded, look nothing like that of a Hall of Famer.

Washington’s most glaring issue is the back end of the bullpen, and all signs point to the Nationals likely making a move for White Sox closer David Robertson. Washington has whiffed on essentially every free agent reliever this offseason, including, but not limited to, Aroldis Chapman, Mark Melancon and Kenley Jansen. They also gave up a ton — two top-50 MLB prospects and their 2016 first-round pick — to get Adam Eaton. It’s a bold strategy, Cotton.

Mens Bradley Sowell Jersey More credit might be due to Doc Adams, who served as chairman of the inaugural Committee on Rules and Regulations in May 1857 and might have done some of the things Cartwright is credited with on his Hall of Fame plaque, such as establishing the distance between bases. Major League Baseball historian John Thorn rediscovered Adams in the early 1980s and highlighted him in his outstanding 2012 book, Baseball in the Garden of Eden.

Eddie Lacy cashes in on first chance to earn weight bonus with Seahawks

Darrius Heyward-Bey Mens Jersey The key number for Eddie Lacy on Monday was 55.

In order for the Seahawks running back to earn $55,000 in one day, he needed to weigh in at 255 pounds or less, according to ESPN. Because Monday marked the first of seven weigh-in checkpoints for the 26-year-old this year in Seattle.

The one-year, $4.25 million contract Lacy signed with the Seahawks in March came with the possibility of a $385,000 weight bonus. Lacy, known for carrying too many extra pounds at points during his four-year tenure in Green Bay, would be able to earn that bonus in segments — $55,000 at each of his seven weigh-ins.
Authentic Ryan Hewitt Jersey
However, as we worked to advance him into the next stage — the strengthening stage, the throwing stage — he started to have an increase in his pain level and started having pain while throwing. As a result, Dr. Pat Connor (head team physician) felt the most prudent procedure would be to arthroscopically repair the shoulder.

Newton suffered a partially torn rotator cuff against the Chargers in Week 14 of last season. Although he didn’t miss any time, the Panthers limited his activity as the season neared a close and Carolina failed to make the playoffs one year after falling to the Broncos in Super Bowl 50.

It is well-documented and well-researched that overhead-throwing athletes commonly have wear and tear to their rotator cuffs, Vermillion said. As a result of the MRI, we modified all of Cam’s work in the weight room and on the field for the final three weeks of the season.

In addition to Newton, defensive end Charles Johnson (back) and wide receiver Damiere Byrd (knee) are also scheduled to have surgery and be ready in time for camp.

Kate Upton, Justin Verlander plan really fun wedding

Justin Verlander and Kate Upton have special plans for their special day.

It’s really quite simple, too.

The limited focus of the program and the likely expense of re-licensing the music segments would make a commercial DVD release or even a re-airing cost-prohibitive.

Elite Mens A. J. Cann Jersey If you had done something like that today, it’d be in the stores 鈥?(but) again, it was before its time, Diamond said. I think we knew it had a pretty short shelf life.

That’s not to say it’s totally unappreciated.

The program has developed a cult following through the years, fueled by older, die-hard Braves fans who saw it in 1983 and happily copy or circulate worn-out VHS tapes to introduce younger fans to this unique bit of 80s Americana.

Some fans have written to Diamond and Hanson in hopes of securing a copy, or just to express gratitude.

It’s feedback that’s always appreciated.
Elite Mens Derek Newton Jersey
Because every email, and every repeat viewing, means their unique and groundbreaking baseball story is still alive somewhere.

Only a few people remember It’s a Long Way to October,’ Diamond said. But those who remember really remember.

Jerry Dipoto is a madman. Why the Mariners were so willing to get rid of a talent such as Taijuan Walker, we’ll never know. Considering that Felix Hernandez, while still good, might not be the ace that he was in years past, giving up Walker could hurt the rotation in 2017. The good thing for Seattle, however, is that its farm system is ripe with young arms. If they pan out, the Mariners will be OK.

‘Madden NFL 18’ to introduce story mode, feature new play styles

The popularity of story-based modes has grown in sports games over recent years due to the production values found in the NBA 2K series and, more recently, the debut of one in FIFA 17 — The Journey got great reviews and was made possible by the Frostbite engine.
Game Dee Milliner Jersey
When the company announced that Madden NFL 18 would be transitioning to Frostbite, it was a foregone conclusion that Madden would be next in line to offer a story mode.

That was made official Friday with the teasing of a story mode in the first Madden NFL 18 trailer.

In FIFA 17, gamers played the role of a pre-designed character working toward and reaching the Premier League and experiencing the trials and tribulations that came with a first season. Madden might be taking a similar route, showing the character in the trailer looking out at Lucas Oil Stadium, which is the location of the NFL Scouting Combine.

That means names could continue to dribble out for weeks, extending the cycle of layoff news stories, but ESPN decided that was the right thing to do.
Game Max Unger Jersey
While the remaining names like Bettis’ gradually emerge, ESPN is not sitting back. It’s reorganizing its talent lineup to focus more on digital and multiplatform performers. The company continues to announce new hires and contract extensions. It just hired Emmy-winning journalist Stefano Fusaro, and it announced contract extensions with Julie Foudy, Adam Amin and Dari Nowkhah.

It also is poised to publicly announce Mike Greenberg’s new solo morning show at its annual upfront presentation to advertisers in New York on May 16.

The Bears got ripped by most for the move up to draft quarterback Mitchell Trubisky at No. 2.

Taking the pressure off quarterback Cam Newton got the Panthers high marks from most. Christian McCaffrey and Curtis Samuel are new weapons for an offense that needed them. Defensive end Daeshon Hall was also considered a good selection in the third round.

The Bears got ripped by most for the move up to draft quarterback Mitchell Trubisky at No. 2. Only drafting one player on defense was a critique of the Bears’ draft this year.

The feelings about the Bengals draft centered on the selection of running back Joe Mixon in the second round. And it’s not even exactly about him punching a woman in the face. It was about the value of the pick since so many teams had him off their draft board. Some were averse to the pick of John Ross in the first round.

Yeah, so the Raiders lost their first 10 games with Carr. But keep in mind the team had to deal with a coaching change after four weeks, and Carr took just 11 sacks in those 10 games behind one of the NFL’s worst offensive lines. Some organizational continuity in Oakland now is going far in helping Carr maintain his success label as a franchise passer.

Manziel wasn’t shoved into the lineup until Week 15 of his rookie season, and he’s not eligible for a success/failure stamp with just eight starts to his name. Those starts were pretty ugly, though, and Johnny Football busted miserably in Cleveland.

Like Bortles, Bridgewater spent the first two weeks of his career on the bench before coming in as relief in Week 3. After that, he was named starter for the rest of the season.

Here’s the important thing: It doesn’t happen without Mike Muscala and his face.

Without defenders willing to play the role of the antagonist, we don’t get marvelous freeze frames like that. We don’t get GIFs that get us dancing in our living rooms. We don’t get stinkfaces. We don’t get bench reactions. We don’t get posters. To the dunkers go the tributes. But without the poster victims, none of this is possible.

Game Mens Jack Ham Jersey We should cherish every player who decides to defend a dunk. We should not ridicule them in a classic sense. (Memes are fine. In fact, memes are good.) These defenders have not been emasculated or expelled from the NBA or any of the goofy things we tweet when something like this happens. They have died on stage, much as Tybalt falls by Romeo’s sword. (Spoiler alert.) It’s a dramatic moment within the greater drama of the game; sometimes, the dramatic moment outshines the whole. But Tybalt still gets applause at the curtain call. So too should Mike Muscala’s face.

Thank you, Mike Muscala’s face. John Wall may be the star of this scene, but it couldn’t happen without you.

But from the very moment that we lost Game 4, I was just very calm about the whole situation, seeing the good that we can prepare and get better for Game 5, instead of looking at all the bad that we did. Just mentally, just having these guys focus, and they answered the call.

Elite Kids DeMarcus Ware Jersey The disregard is so mean because the Raptors, for the last few years, have been the team that was supposed to dethrone LeBron James in the Eastern Conference. They were the liberators who would take down the tyrant king. And each time James hasn’t just beaten them, he’s done it with the attitude of a man who is annoyed at the fact that he has to answer work e-mail on his day off. The Raptors are the supposed challengers to his dominance, and he’s swatting them away with the casual boredom of a scientist who is tired of explaining that velociraptors were the size of turkeys and had feathers.

NFL draft 2017: Updating best available players as picks are made

The 2017 NFL Draft is officially in the books, but we’ve got you covered with our running list of the best available players who didn’t get selected. If you are unsure about who went where, check out our tracker.

Texas A&M’s Myles Garrett, who was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the first overall pick, is the obvious No. 1 on our list. The Chicago Bears traded up to the No. 2 slot and drafted quarterback Mitch Trubisky, a move a lot of people questioned.
Darron Lee Youth Jersey
It happened sort of how we expected. San Antonio has a wide range of contributors, but no one who could contain Zach Randolph on Thursday. He scored 21 points while Marc Gasol added 21 more. The slow-paced game came down to sparkling execution, and Memphis’ five turnovers and 51 percent shooting carried them while San Antonio just wasn’t as sharp. The other hero was Mike Conley, who lit up for 24 points that included moves like this.
Justin Tucker Youth Jersey
I just felt that, I saw it watching the game, at no point was he going to get tired. I just think that she was just looking down on him and just giving him any extra motivation, any little touch, any little spring. When you’re on the court, that’s your sanctuary. That’s where you kinda block everything out no matter what you’re going through in your individual life, you can block everything out because that’s your happy place, and it definitely showed for him in his individual performance.
