Pats rookie turning heads in training camp

Prior to training camp, Tyquan Thornton voiced his intention to grow into more than just a speedster. The rookie wide receiver for the New England Patriots desired to develop into a complete player at his position.

Just seven practices in, it is apparent that although he isn’t there just yet, he is heading in the right direction. Thornton has showed outstanding elusiveness, mental focus, and hands during 1-on-1s and team drills.

As a byproduct, some of the Patriots best passing plays from ended with the pigskin in his hands. Unsurprisingly, his fellow wide receivers have also been impressed by the rookies abilities on the field and his devotion to becoming a better player and an intrinsic component to the Patriots’ offense

Fellow teammate Nelson Agholor had this to say about the second-rounder,

“I see a guy that’s just working hard every day. He’s having fun, and I think I like where he is mentally. He has a growth mindset, and he practices really hard, takes great notes. I think every day, he’s just going to keep on getting better, and that’s important for him and his journey.”

The Patriots traded up in the second round of this year’s draft to select Thornton, and his exceptional speed was a major factor in that decision. The Baylor product ran a 4.28-second 40-yard dash at the Scouting Combine, which was one of the best times since testing began 35 years ago and the fastest among wide receivers present.

This speed has been on display thus far in camp. New England also utilizes Thornton on special teams, where he has numerous opportunities as a gunner with the punt coverage unit.

Fellow wide receiver Jakobi Meyers is optimistic about his future, even if he doesn’t contribute off the bat,

“He’s going to be a good football player,” Meyers said on Wednesday. “I really do enjoy watching him play. I know what it’s like now that I’ve played a couple of years to kind of just see what guys can do in the league. I feel like he’ll have great future, honestly, because he’s really talented. Just to be fast and quick and catch the ball really well, I’m excited about it.”

Agholor agreed with Meyers, noting that Thornton’s professionalism is another quality that will help him succeed in the professional ranks.

“A level of professionalism is what you need to play in this league, and I think they have a great level of professionalism, all of our young guys,” the second-year Patriot said. “For him, I think there’s a balance of just being calm and just working every day that I like about him.”

ESPN releases their Top 50 Greatest CFB Defenses Ever, leaving many suprised

ESPN released a list of their 50 greatest college football defenses ever, and it might surprise you. The rankings, lists and comparisons that come out of ESPN, whether it is hockey, baseball, NBA hoops or even softball are always a little questioning.

Here is an example. This is an old article of them suggesting that Victor Oladipo could potentially be THE NEXT AIR JORDAN. Although Oladipo is a good player who has been robbed due to injury, the idea is preposterous alone:

Yes, that is real story. They got THAT caught up in the hype that they were insane enough try to push such a ludicrous agenda like that on their viewers. Anyways, back to the so-called list. I’m not even going to try to start on why this list is wrong, I will have to have a podcast for that. ESPN MAYBE got the first one right. A huge MAYBE.

Here is the top 10, and I will put the story to the whole article with all 50 rankings at the bottom.

ESPN’s Top 10 #CFB defenses of all time

1. 2016 BAMA

2. 2017 BAMA

3. 1956 OLE MISS

4. 1959 LSU

5. 1965 MSU

6. 1939 TENN

7. 2011 BAMA

8. 2011 LSU

9. 1972 MICH

10. 1986 OU

Who got snubbed? Who is overrated? Leave a comment below and let me know what they got wrong or what they got right!

Two Elite WRs Not Participating in Training Camp

Two Elite WRs Not Participating in Training Camp

Star NFL receivers Deebo Samuel and DK Metcalf will reportedly not participate in training camp drills due to contract disagreements, according to a tweet by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It was earlier this week that both players showed up to training camp.

Both receivers are entering the final year of their contracts. Metcalf missed mandatory minicamp, but only received a $90K fine. Samuel reported to minicamp, but didn’t do on-field practice, opening the door to a hold-out. The two players would be fined $40K for every day if they held out. The CBA’s recent holdout crackdown includes a clause that would deduct a year of service time after just a week of absences. Samuel and Metcalf will avoid fines by attending camp but not playing.

Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury tweeted that Samuel still conditioned on the sidelines, while the rest of the team participated in drills today. Fortunately, Samuel’s agent has met with the organization and it is quite possible a deal will be reached.

Kyle Shanahan told the media after meeting with his star receiver:
“Hopefully we can figure something out soon, but we’re in a good place today,” Via (Inman).

Samuel is destined to join the class of receivers signing $20M+ deals. Bridging the gap between Samuel’s initial asking price and the team’s best offer has helped repair relations after he requested a trade in April. Still, there is an obvious divide when it comes to how valuable both sides think Samuel is.

After holding out last offseason, Jamal Adams decision definitely helped inspire Metcalf’s hold-out this year. Adams ultimately succeeded holding out last summer, as he returned to the Seahawks after signing a record-setting contract. Metcalf won’t shatter the market, but he should land a lucrative multiyear contract. Metcalf’s decision to skip minicamp surprised some within the organization as well, but he and Seahawks HC Pete Carroll are optimistic they will find a deal that satisfies both parties. This process will not be completed early in camp. As a matter of fact, a report just last month said a Metcalf deal “hardly seemed like a slam dunk”

Free MLB Pick 7/16/22

Free MLB Pick 7/16/22 Mariners vs Rangers

Even though I realize the Mariners are playing outstanding baseball and that’s why they’ve won 12 straight games, you’re getting a great deal on the Rangers for that very reason.

After giving up four earned runs in his last two starts, Mariners starter Logan Gilbert hasn’t gone past six innings since May.

Based on the advanced statistics and numbers, I would take the Rangers to cover.

THE PICK: RANGERS ML (+118)

Bridges likely to never play again, and rightfully so

Bridges likely to never play again, and rightfully so

Jeff Taylor pictured above

Jeffrey Taylor received a 24-game suspension for domestic violence in 2014, which is the longest in NBA history to this day.

He earned it by doing the following:

“According to the NBA press release, Taylor and the woman got into an argument after a night of heavy drinking, which prompted other hotel guests to summon security.

Then it escalated, so Taylor pushed her into the corridor. She then fell to the ground and hit her head on a different door, causing her to become unconscious.

Taylor also slapped her arm and punched a hole in the wall near his hotel room, according to the press statement he sent.

As reported by the police, the woman received scratches and a bump on her head, but did not seek medical attention.

Miles is in a similar boat, but much worst. This isn’t tied to binge drinking. Also this was his wife, not his girlfriend,

Among other things, he is accused of breaking her nose, wrist, and choking her. (which is a felony itself).

Not to mention, it’s 2022. His case involves his wife posting the photos on social media for the entire world to see.

A disturbing video of his son’s facetime discussion is at the heart of this case as well, and it’s a tough watch to say the least.

The situation for Miles Bridges is far more serious.

Cancel culture wasn’t nearly as prevalent in 2014 as well.

Certainly Miles Bridges will miss the entire 2022-2023 NBA season, and he probably will be in prison instead of the NBA for a pretty long time.

Potential Disaster on the Horizon Days before MLB All-Star Game

Potential Disaster on the Horizon Days before MLB All-Star Game

Just days before the MLB All-Star game, concession workers at Dodger Stadium have threatened to go on strike. In a news release Monday, it was announced that 99% of the employees were in favor of going on strike at any moment. Yikes.

A strike could pose a huge problem for Dodger Stadium as it is days away from its first All-Star Game in 42 years. Dodger Stadium employs nearly 1,500 food servers, bartenders, suite attendants, cooks and dishwashers. Unite Here Local 11, a union representing the concession workers, has not provided specifics on the workers’ demands but hopes to negotiate a fair new union contract.

A fan at an iconic “Dodger Dog” concession stand.

Unite Here Local 11’s co-president, Susan Minato, wrote in a statement, “Stadium workers are proud of the role they play to bring fans the best game experience possible. They are the backbone of our tourism and sports industry, yet many struggle to stay housed and to make ends meet. They often live with economic uncertainty because the quality of jobs vary stadium to stadium. No worker should have to continue living like this.”

Freddie Freeman

Minato makes a valid point. Without concession workers, the upcoming All-Star game weekend is going to be a disaster. Hopefully, Levy Restaurants, the Chicago-based company that employs the concession workers, will do what is right so the game can go on.

Phillies vs Cardinals Free MLB Pick 7/11/22

Phillies vs Cardinals Free MLB Pick 7/11/22

The Cardinals are looking for a split in this four-game series and I like their chances. In terms of defensive runs saved (-21), Philly is ranked 28th, while the Cards are tied for seventh place in the league (+30).

With a low-scoring game expected, take the better defensive team as a home underdog. After the game, the Phillies will depart to Canada as well. Also, the injury of MVP hopeful Bryce Harper certainly matters too.

THE PICK: STL ML (+105)

Trade talk over NBA star only lasted 20 minutes

By: OutOfSightSports

Trade talk over NBA star only lasted 20 minutes

Trade negotiations between the Atlanta Hawks and Utah Jazz for Rudy Gobert lasted around twenty minutes. Originally, there were rumors the Atlanta Hawks would be acquiring Gobert in a package built around Clint Capela. When push came to shove, the Hawks were not about to throw all Minnesota did to Utah in exchange. The Hawks, still hopeful to acquire disgruntled superstar, Kevin Durant, never really entertained the idea of a trade for Gobert. Capela remains a Hawk despite Minnesota’s rumored interest in him.

The Utah Jazz traded three-time defensive player and all-star, Rudy Gobert, to the Minnesota Timberwolves in twenty minutes proving to be one of the fastest NBA trade negotiations of all time. Three unprotected first-round picks, a pick swap, 2022 22nd-overall pick Walker Kessler along with four other players is what it took to cement the trade to Minnesota for Gobert.

Talks between Atlanta and Minnesota proved to be a rumor that didn’t make sense to onlookers. During his podcast titled “Please Don’t Aggregate This,” Andy Larson of the Salt Lake Tribune said, “From what I hear, the Atlanta conversations about Rudy Gobert took about 20 minutes is all.” Bleacher Report’s host, Jake Fischer, agreed with Larson saying he “never thought those were going very far.”

Free MLB Pick 7/7/22: Cardinals @ Braves

By: OOSSportsbook

7/7/22

Free MLB Pick 7/7/22: Cardinals @ Braves

The St. Louis Cardinals & Atlanta Braves will square off once again at Truist Park on Thursday evening.

The Braves have won the first three games of this series too, and hoist a 49-34 overall record and are closing down on the New York Mets in the National League East, a theme we have seen quite often throughout the years.

Meanwhile, St Louis has a 44-40 overall record and a good roster, but they have dropped their last four consecutive games.

The Cardinals have scored just four runs in their last four games, and two of those games were shutouts.

The Cardinals’ batting average is 4.66, which ranks them 8th in the MLB, while the Braves currently have the 4th best run average in baseball this year, averaging a very respectable 4.77 runs per game.

To date, Atlanta’s pitching staff has been the most impressive aspect of this series thus far and is one of the main reasons this team looked lifeless, and now they look like the champs again.

When it comes to scoring runs, the Braves are 11th in the league at 4.06 runs per contest.

Matthew Liberatore, the Cardinals’ starting pitcher tonight, has a 2-1 record and a 5.56 ERA.

He lasted just 2.2 innings in his last start against the Phillies, allowing seven hits and five runs. For the most part, Liberatore has been subpar this season for the Cards rotation to this point.

Strider, the Braves’ starting pitcher, with a 4-2 record and a 2.87 ERA. He lasted six innings against the Reds, allowing only one hit and one run.

The Cardinals have lost all six of their previous Thursday games (0-6).

When facing the teams from Central Division, the Atlanta Braves have also gone an almost perfect 5-1 against them.

Also, ATL has gone 4-0 in their previous four games against the spread.

Yesterday’s highlights from the Braves shutout W

In this series, the Cardinals have struggled to score, and that will be a problem in this game as well.

Despite having a 2.87 ERA, Strider’s latest outing saw him allow just one hit and one run. 

The Pick: BRAVES -1.5

Strider is going to make it difficult for the Cards to plate runs. Ultimately, I strongly believe that the Braves will be too much for the Cardinals once again today.
