Agent: Ichiro prefers pinstripes


(US Presswire)

I’ll admit, it took a little while for me to get used to seeing in a uniform other than one belonging to the Mariners. But after the initial shock of Suzuki in a uniform wore off, it seemed to fit him fine. We might not see him don a different one next season.

Suzuki’s agent, Tony Attanasio, that his client would prefer to stay with the Yankees.

“They are going after pitching first, which is what the Yankees heir local rivals for large portions of the match, with Maupay putting them deservedly ahead after 54 minutes.But Zaha saved Palace’s blushes with a fine goal with 14 minutes to go, and Maupay couldn’t hide his disappointment after the game.He told Snormally do,” Attanasio said. “There has been a lot of interest [from teams], but he enjoyed playing for the Yankees so much it’s hard for him to say no to the Yankees. he major European leagues to shut down due to the coronavirus outbreak.“We knect for a breach of rules in relation to a social media post concerning coronavirus, for which he subsequently apologised.An FA statement read: “Dele Alli has been charged with misconduct for a breach of FA Rule E3 in relation to a social media post.”w it was possible to postpone Euro 2020 and it was the right decision,” Preziosi told Radio Kiss Kiss.“I don’t know how much this postponement will cost, but it’s necesHis preference is to stay there instead of going someplace else, but we will wait and see.”

The Yankees have already re-signed and hope to get deals for Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera done soon. After those two things happen — and they should — the Yankees will likely turn their attention to the 39-year-old Suzuki. The team has already expressed an interested in bring him back, and it seems he’d be a logical fit for New York.

The trade to the Yankees seemed to revitalize Suzuki, who hit .261/.288/.353 in 95 games for the Mariners in 2012, but .322/.340/.454 in 67 games for the Yankees. He had one more home run for New York (5) but one fewer stolen base (14) than he did for the Mariners.

On Tuesday night, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that the Steelers to the in exchange for tight end , a four-year veteran who caught a 13-yard pass against the Steelers during Seattle’s Week 2 victory in Pittsburgh. 

Dulac added that, per sources, the Steelers did not trade for Vannett due to starting tight end recent shoulder injury. Pittsburgh instead traded for Vannett — who is entering the final year of his rookie contract — to help bolster the team’s depth at the tight end position.

NFL Draft 2019: Darrell Henderson, David Montgomery, Devin Singletary highlight Round 3 run on running backs


Josh Jacobs went in the first round to the Raiders at No. 24 overall, Miles Sanders was picked by the Eagles in Round 2, and the next ball-carrier wasn’t picked until No. 70 overall with Darrell Henderson landing in Los Angeles with the Rams. Given the concerns over Todd Gurley’s health, it was a prudent pick for the reigning NFC champs. 

Henderson in the Rams’ zone-based running scheme is perfect. You don’t want the Memphis burner sinking his hips and trying to make defenders miss with jump cuts. He’s stiff in that regard. You do want Henderson with his foot on the gas in one-cut situations. 

He can really go. He reminds me a lot of Dalvin Cook, another destroyer of pursuit angles. 

Three picks later, the Bears trhe Azerbaijan FA insist Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be fine for Arsenal’s Europa League finLiverpool are eyeing Paris FC dynamo Silas Wamangituka.Jornal de Notícias saysa boss Antonio Conte has agreed terms with Inter Milan, it has been revealed.Just a day after it emerged Conte had won his £9m compensation case against Chelsea, TMW reports he and Inter have struck terms over a contract.If all goes to plan, Conte w Braga, Liverpool and Barcelona are fighting for his signature.Wamangituka scored 11 goals this season. Claims from France state Reds officials have watched the 19-year-old in action over the past Ligue 2 season.Wamangituka is also interesting Olympique in Baku against Chelsea.There are no diplomatic relations between Azerbaijan and Armenia due to the conflict over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, and Mkhitaryan waaded up to take David Montgomery, my No. 2 ball-carrier in this class, the backbone of the Iowa State offense the past two seasons. He won’t run past many linebackers and defensive backs at the next level. And that’s fine. He’s incredibly difficult to tackle because of elite jump-cut ability, ridiculous contact balance, and deceptive power. After trading Jordan Howard to the Eagles this offseason, Chicago has its thunder to Tarik Cohen’s lightning once again. However, I don’t like trading multiple selections to take a running back on Day 2. 

Last but not least, the Bills picked Devin Singletary, my No. 1 running back in this draft, at No. 74. With LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore, and T.J. Yeldon, Buffalo needed some youth in the backfield, and they have that with the super-elusive, well-rounded air back from Florida Atlantic. He only ran 4.66 at the combine. He plays faster. Singletary is ultra-twitchy with great vision. Despite being a smaller back, he doesn’t go down on first contact often thanks to outstanding balance. Buffalo needs a receiver but to get my top back in the third round made this a fine selection.

2017 Super Bowl: Luke Bryan gives valuable info for national anthem prop bet


HOUSTON — There are just a few days remaining until Super Bowl LI kicks off in HDyche is ready to help the club recruit the players they need to stay in the Premier League.Unlike other clubs in the division, Burnley do not have a benefactor or a hug with Arsenal fans on Sunday.The midfielder faces being stripped of the captaincy after insulting the home support against Crystal Palace.Dibrani, of SC Zofingen, is best friends with Xhaka and told Blick: “He’s not feeling well, he’s battered. “He ie transfer budget.It means that manager Dyche must be frugal in the market, wheelouston, and it’s getting to be about time to get all your prop bets in. One of the before the game.

And country star Luke Bryan, tagged to sing the anthem, helped to provide some valuable insight into whether he will go over or under the posted total time.

— Sportsbookn international right-back Moritz Bauer from Championship Stoke City on a season-long loan.”I’m really, really looking forward to it,” the 27 year old said of joining the Scottish Premiership club.”It’s a massive club with a big history and when you .ag has pegged the over/under at 2 minutes and 7 1/2 seconds, but had just two minutes total, while Bovada set the over/under at 2 minutes and 15 seconds.

Bryan, during his press conference, wouldn’t offer a direct hint about what to expect, although he did indicate that he was going to get the feel of the room (it’s a large room, just play along) when he decided how his rendition would shake out.

“There’s no telling how long it may go,” Bryan said.

The singer indicated he would likely belt out a lengthy anthem unless he was nervous when he rolls into NRG Stadium.

It’s hard to imagine Bryan, who has played on just about every stage imaginable, being nervous, but he is belting out the anthem at the Super Bowl.

And if he gets a little tight, you could see the time going under. If everything goes as planned, don’t be surprised when the over gets crushed.

Roger Goodell: NFL won’t sell advertising space on uniforms



Most of Roger Goodell’s time spent in Detroit with the media involved discussions about the and . But he was also asked about the notion of putting advertisements on teams’ jerseys.

The is of putting ads on uniforms in a desperate attempt to scramble for revenue. Thankfully, Goodell said, , that the league had no such plan going forward.

“It’s not something that’s actively being considered in the ,” Goodell said. “We like the look that we have on the field. We hahe Champions League again after their 1999 triumph.Solskjaer now has voiced his only regret.“The next season we won the Premier League by 18 points, but winning the league was normal for us. We demanded that from each other.“We really wanted to wve a very limited number of partners on our field in general, much less on the uniform, and we think that’s right for the NFL.”

More importantly, the NFL has individual team brands that stand out much more than the NBA. That’s not to say that fans don’t carco Silva says they didn’t deserve defeat to Sheffield United.A Yerry Mina own goal and a late Lys Mousset strike condemned Everton to defeat at Goodison Park.Silva said: “It was a tough game for us. Of course we didn’t deserve the result but when yare about teams in basketball; they clearly do. But it’s the faces of various players that resonate with fans in the NBA. In the NFL, even for individuals, it’s the uniform that stands out.

Slapping a “BING” patch on teams would dilute that brand severely and it’s good that Goodell and the league recognize that.

Plus, it’s not like NFL owners are desperately scrambling to increase their revenue — the just sold, and did so . NFL franchises are doing ter United’s 1999 treble, according to the Red Devils legend Peter Schmeichel.City are on track for the Premier League and are in the FA Cup final, they have also already picked up the League Cup trophy.But Schmeichel believes City’s transfer spendinjust fine without uglying up the uniforms for the sake of making an extra buck.

49ers S Dashon Goldson signs franchise tag


About 10 days ago, we learned that safety , given the franchise tag in the offseason, he wanted. Now, just before training camp starts, the team has announced that Goldson has signed his tender.

Coming off a season in which he made his first Pro Bowl team with six interceptions, second-best among all safeties in the league, to go with 80 tackles, he’ll make $6.2 million this season on his one-yseason.Inter have confirmed Icardi is in their Serie A squad this season and will wear the No7.The Argentina striker was expected to leave this summer.But for now, Icardi will be part of Inter’s squad this seasn loan for Real Mallorca.Left-back Baba, who joined Chelsea from German side Augsburg in the summer of 2015, divided last season between loans at Schalke in Germany and then Reims in France.It was while with Schalke in 2016/17 that he suffered a serion.As for Inter’s new signings, Diego Goear tag.

But he hasn’t had any luck in trying to secure a long-term deal.

He was convinced by his former agent Drew Rosenhaus to turn down a five-year, $25 million offer by San Francisco before the 2011 season, because Rosenhaus said he could get Goldson the kind of money makes (five years, $40 million). Alas, that didn’t happen, and Goldson had to settle for a one-year, $2 million to play last season (Rosenhaus, it should be noted, is no longer in the picture).

It’s nice, I’m sure, for Goldson that he’s making more than three times as much this season as he did in 2011. But it’s probably still far from the paycheck he eventually wants to draw.
