Report: Yankees could have interest in signing Dallas Keuchel next month

Report: Yankees could have interest in signing Dallas Keuchel next month The New York Yankees could still use some help in their rotation until Luis Severino returns and potentially beyond, so it makes sense they have been linked to free-agent pitcher Dallas Keuchel. However, the Yanks may prefer to wait another month before they consider signing the left-hander. Jon Heyman of Fancred reports the Yankees are one of the teams interested in Keuchel, but they would want to wait until after the MLB Draft ends on June 5 to sign him. That is because the Yankees (or any team) would not have to give the Houston Astros — Keuchel’s former team — compensation in the form of a draft pick if they wait until after the draft to sign him.

Опубликовано: 24 окт. 2015 г. Why are we still here? Just to suffer? Every night, I can feel my leg and my arm even my fingers. The body I've lost the comrades I've lost won't stop hurting It's like they're all still there. You feel it, too, don't you? I'm gonna make them give back our past.

Annual amateur drafts are so deeply embedded in U.S. professional sports culture that we rarely stop to think about how dumb they are. Why are we still doing this?

Zion Williamson is the most coveted 18-year-old basketball player in the world, and for that, he must let the whims of the NBA Draft Lottery dictate where he lives? Top-flight athletes can choose the high-school program that's right for them and then choose the college program that's right for them, then they go pro and have practically no agency whatsoever. That seems stupid!

The all-volunteer force has proved both successful and resilient since it was established in 1973, to include the Mike Coffman (R-Colo.), who recently co-sponsored a bill that would do exactly that, explained his position We will never again need a draft . Why are we even having this conversation?

That's literally all he fucking did . All anime is gay so Put In Your Wet Mouth And Crawl Into Your Anal Hole And Die before you thump down "pokemon" and obviously one of the best and most top youtubers would agree i bet ur a fatass with acne all over ur small cock.. How big is your dick by the way?

There's talk that Williamson may not want to go to play for the Pelicans - who scored the No. 1 overall draft pick - and our Andrew Joseph looked at his other options, which include returning to Duke for a sophomore season. I don't personally understand why anyone wouldn't want to go to New Orleans, arguably the best city, but maybe Zion Williamson hates good funk and great food; that's his prerogative.

This is a half-formed thought of a brain that did not get nearly enough sleep last night, but what if, rather than subjecting the top eligible young players to the NBA Draft every year, they instead just didn't do that?

I've written about this scenario for baseball multiple times and at fairly great length. But where MLB would need some sort of bonus pool to govern how much teams could spend on would-be domestic amateur free agents - lest the Yankees, Dodgers, Red Sox and Cubs snatch up every single good young player - it strikes me that NBA teams are already restricted by a salary cap. Hey, Knicks, you want Zion so bad? Great, you've got cap room, go make your case to him.

The NBA's byzantine salary-cap structure and caveats complicate things, but it feels like eliminating the draft would immediately end tanking as a strategy. It might even inspire the Knicks to figure out a way to stop sucking so hard at everything all the time, lest they sign only masochists every year.

The guess here is that neither NBA teams nor veteran NBA players would go for it, and no one represents amateurs at any negotiating tables. And I get that entering a career in professional sports means making some trade-offs, including giving up your right to choose where you live during the season in exchange for getting lots and lots of money to play a game.

I probably do more work at home than I have ever done but it is because I want to do and it is what I I am writing this because I want to have a conversation about why we are still assigning homework. Most teachers don’t love grading it or putting all those packets together, but for some reason they do .

Watch CBSN Live. Commentary: Why are we still in Afghanistan? That's nice, but you'd think, for all that money spent, we could decisively vanquish enemies like we did when we were a poorer For all that, Afghanistan remains a backwards, largely illiterate, and essentially feudal society of competing

But there's nothing fundamentally unfair about having pro sports teams compete to sign top amateur talent instead of drafting it, and there's really no other industry in which the most in-demand potential employees get so little say in where they wind up. Sure, people get transferred, but choosing not to relocate does not mean you have to find a whole new career. If you want to play professional basketball - or football, or baseball, or hockey - in North America, you pretty much just have to go where the league tells you to go.

It's weird. Drafts have been part of the sports landscape for so long that we just sort of accept them as inevitabilities, but it seems like we could do better.

Wednesday's big winner: Brook Lopez

The Bucks' big man scored 29 points to help his team overcome a big deficit and take Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals over the Toronto Raptors. He got all fired up and did some weird, animated clapping that looked like belonged in a silent film. Lopez's career arc (no pun intended) is amazing: Across his first six seasons in the NBA, he went 0-for-7, total, from behind the 3-point line. Over his last three seasons, he is 433-for-1224.

NFL to announce future draft locations this week, report says

NFL to announce future draft locations this week, report says With Las Vegas already set to host the 2020 event, other finalists for the next one include Cleveland, Kansas City and Denver. In Ohio, the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission already is anticipating good news. “We’re proud to have partnered with the Cleveland Browns and several other local organizations to create a strong, competitive NFL Draft bid that highlights our region and celebrates our unrivaled football history as well as our rock ‘n’ roll roots,'' Greater Cleveland Sports Commission president David Gilbert in a statement, via cleveland.com.

At no point does it ever appear to either stand still or… But why does it always flow the way it does for us ? In all of these cases, an initially lower-entropy state (with more available, capable-of- doing -work energy) has moved into a higher-entropy (and lower available energy) state as time

All else being equal, people who wait less than they anticipated leave happier than those who wait longer than expected. This is why Disney, the universally Professors Carmon and Kahneman have also found that we are more concerned with how long a line is than how fast it’s moving.

Quick hits: Jets, Sale, Willis

- Everything only seemed like it was going smoothly for the Jets. Henry McKenna put together a good explainer on why they might fire their GM at this point in the offseason.

- Chris Sale struck out 17 Rockies in seven innings on Tuesday, so I made some very sensual GIFs of his best pitches.

- Phillies fans booed Bruce Willis for bouncing his ceremonial first pitch. Anywhere else in the country and I'd insist they were saying, "Bruuuuuce!" Also, who knew Bruce Willis throws left-handed? I love this photo because it looks like Bruce Willis is just laboring out there. Sorry, Bruce Willis, I know you don't have your best stuff tonight and your ERA's going to take a hit, but we're on the long side of a blowout and you're going to have to wear this one to save the rest of the 'pen for tomorrow.

- Hemal Jhaveri's week of Wick continued with a look at the nice things Keanu Reeves does for the cast and crew on set. I'm probably going to see John Wick 3 tonight even though I already know it's two hours and 23 minutes and thus probably far too long. Too many movies are too long now.

Why Nassir Little thinks he can be the next Kawhi Leonard, and the NBA can be a better fit.
May 28-- May 28--When he first arrived in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, for his lone season with the North Carolina Tar Heels, Nassir Little had all the making of a top-10 -- or maybe even top-five -- pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. The small forward was the No. 3 overall prospect in the 247Sports.com composite rankings for the Class of 2018 and his skill set as a two-way wing made him exactly the sort of prospect NBA teams value most. Nothing in his only season at North Carolina went exactly as planned. The Tar Heels relegated Little to a bench role, and his production was inconsistent.
