The New York Jets want rookie Sam Darnold to win their starting quarterback job in training camp this summer, but it will be impossible for him to do that if he does not sign a contract with the team. In the meantime, Teddy Bridgewater is apparently getting a great opportunity to showcase his skills.Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports notes that Bridgewater has been a big beneficiary of the Darnold situation, as he is getting most of the first-team reps in Darnold’s absence. That could help boost his trade value. … [Read more...] about Teddy Bridgewater’s trade value on rise with Sam Darnold unsigned?
Sun., July 29, 2018 The swallows to Capistrano. Winter. The weekend mail. Three things that always come back. Yeah, we’re getting a step or two closer to normal around here, still more than a few steps to go on the journey but knocking off a weekend mailbag now seems quite doable. So, we’ll plan to keep it for Sunday mornings the rest of the summer and see how we do. Article Continued Below Enjoy. Q: Hi Doug, It is great to see the old Doug back in full swing. Just finished reading your column on Carnoustie and am surprised I can write at this moment I am laughing so hard. That Drambuie can sure hit its mark can’t it??? Must have been hell trying to find the ball that wasn’t. Great to have you back Doug. Bob A: Dear Old Dad used to have a Drambuie or six which is where I acquired my since-lost taste.

Keep up with all the latest trades and rumors around Major League Baseball by Dayn Perry @daynperry 2m ago • 3 min read The market for Rays right-hander Chris Archer seems to be getting hotter and hotter. Here's an update from Jon Heyman:We learned Saturday that the Yankees and Dodgers have some level of interest in Archer, and Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch tweeted that the Cardinals are also perhaps still in the mix. As Heyman reports, though, the Padres still look like the front-runners. Archer, 29, hasn't pitched at an ace level since 2015, when he finished fifth in the AL Cy Young balloting. However, the underlying skills are there, as is the "ace-ish" upside. What greatly adds to Archer's market appeal is that -- assuming his two club options are exercised -- he's under contract through the 2021 season at bargain rates. As for the Padres, it may seem odd for a team on pace for 98 losses to align themselves with … [Read more...] about MLB trades, deadline rumors: With Chris Archer on the block, the Rays are scouting Yankees prospect Justus Sheffield
The trading has been fast and furious so far, and Fantasy owners are struggling to keep up. Our Scott White sums up some of the more notable deals. by Scott White @CBSScottWhite Jul 28, 2018 • 4 min read With the trade deadline approaching, we may not see another deal as big as the Manny Machado coup that went down during the All-Star break, but the volume of trades has been impressive so far. Mike Moustakas to the Brewers, Travis Shaw to second baseProbably the most notable of the non-Machado deals, Mike Moustakas finally escapes an environment that's bad for hitters in general and especially bad for one like him, whose swing is geared entirely for power with high pull and fly-ball percentages. This year hasn't been so bad -- 11 home runs on the road vs. nine at home -- but last year, it was 24 on the road vs. 14 at home, and for his career, it's 80 vs. 59. Miller Park, in contrast, is one of the most homer-friendly parks in baseball and … [Read more...] about Fantasy Baseball Trade Deadline Analysis: On Mike Moustakas, Cole Hamels and other big movers
