Justin Verlander could reunite with notable former teammate?

  Justin Verlander could reunite with notable former teammate? On Sunday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported that the reigning AL Cy Young winner Verlander has spoken with the New York Mets about possibly signing with them. The two sides are said to have met over Zoom last week. Verlander, who has been with the Houston Astros since 2017, is one of several quality right-handed starters on the free agent market this offseason. Of course, the Mets are already trying to re-sign the single best one of those options in Jacob deGrom, so their interest in Verlander may be for a Plan B in case deGrom walks.There is an additional connection here for Verlander as well.

Earlier: Atlanta Hawks fans witnessed a terrifying sight during the team's pregame show on Monday night.

Longtime announcer Bob Rathbun suffered what looked like a potentially serious medical emergency while breaking down Atlanta's matchup with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Rathbun was sitting next to franchise legend and current analyst Dominique Wilkins when he began to appear to be in distress. There's video of the episode below, but we would like to warn anyone that it might be disturbing.

Cody Bellinger could sign with big Dodgers rival?

  Cody Bellinger could sign with big Dodgers rival? Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reported on Monday that the San Francisco Giants have checked in on former NL MVP outfielder Cody Bellinger, who was non-tendered by the Dodgers last week. Bellinger is reportedly looking for a one-year deal in free agency. Slusser adds that the Giants, who would like to sign multiple outfielders this winter, have also checked in on New York Mets free agent Brandon Nimmo.The 27-year-old Bellinger, who has spent his entire MLB career with the Dodgers to this point, remains a tremendous defensive asset.

Immediately, prayers for the 68-year-old Rathbun began pouring in on Twitter.

"Prayers for Bob Rathbun. Really hope he is ok," one fan said, with another noting that the Bally Sports voice is "not only a great sportscaster but a wonderful human being."

We will update you with official news on Rathbun once it becomes available.

Hopefully, the entire incident looked scarier than it really was and he'll be fine and back on the mic in no time.

Update: It looks like we have good news on Rathbun, who was treated for dehydration and taken to the hospital for evaluation.

"I am told that Bob Rathbun was treated by emergency medical professionals for dehydration. He is stable, responsive and is heading to Emory Midtown for further evaluation," said Hawks beat writer Lauren Williams.
