An iconic Nike logo of a leaping Michael Jordan that the company has used to market billions of dollars of merchandise didn’t violate the copyright of an earlier photograph of the basketball star D.K. Metcalf Jersey , a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday.

 That photo was ”obviously inspired” by a 1984 photo by Jacobus Rentmeester, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said. But the court in a 2-1 decision said the photos are unmistakably different in key elements.

Both show Jordan leaping with his legs extended outward toward a basketball hoop with a ball above his head.

Nike used its photo for the ”Jumpman” logo – a silhouetted image of Jordan in the leaping pose in its photograph.

Rentmeester photographed Jordan while he played at the University of North Carolina. His photograph appeared in Life Magazine in a photo essay featuring U.S. athletes competing in the 1984 Summer Olympics.

An email to a law firm representing Rentmeester wasn’t immediately returned.


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Next month’s NIT games will use experimental rules that include an extended 3-point line, a wider free-throw lane and 10-minute quarters instead of 20-minute halves.

The NCAA announced the changes Tuesday.

The 3-point arc will move to roughly 22 feet, which is used by FIBA for international competition. The lane will expand from 12 feet to the NBA’s 16 feet.

Also, the shot clock will reset to 20 seconds after offensive rebounds instead of the full 30 seconds.

The NCAA says in its release that officials will review whether widened lanes ”reduce physicality and create more driving opportunities,” as well as the impact of the rule changes on ”the pace and flow of the game.”

The NIT begins March 13 and ends March 29 in New York’s Madison Square Garden.


MADRID (AP) – Enrique Castro ”Quini,” the former Spain striker who played for Barcelona and thrived in a long career with Sporting Gijon, has died of a heart attack. He was 68.

Sporting said Castro collapsed while walking near his house in the northern city of Gijon.

Known as ”The Wizard,” Castro played in the 1978 and 1982 World Cups with Spain.

His career was also notable for a kidnapping incident during his first year with Barcelona http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-cody-barton-jersey , when he was abducted at gunpoint after a home game, spending 25 days in captivity before being rescued by police.

Castro also survived throat cancer that required surgery in 2008.

He played for Barcelona until 1984, making 178 appearances and winning five titles with the Catalan club.

Barcelona said Castro was ”a synonym for goals” and ”one of the best strikers in Europe in his time.”

He played with Sporting from 1968 until 1980, and again after leaving Barcelona to end his career with more than 400 appearances for the club.

The Spanish league said there will be a minute of silence to honor Castro in matches on Wednesday and Thursday.

Castro was the first division’s leading scorer five times.


NEW YORK (AP) – Papa John’s is ending its recently stormy role as an official sponsor of the NFL.

Officials at the pizza chain said Tuesday that the two sides agreed to end the relationship, which became strained last year when its founder John Schnatter criticized NFL leadership over national anthem protests by players.

But the company based in Louisville, Kentucky, is not divorcing itself from the league altogether. It says instead it will focus its football marketing efforts on 22 of the league’s 32 teams and its star players.

Schnatter blamed slowing sales growth at Papa John’s on the outcry surrounding football players kneeling during the national anthem. The company later apologized for the remarks and Schnatter stepped down as CEO at the end of last year.

Mike Foltynewicz loves trying to one-up his fellow hurlers in the Atlanta Braves red-hot pitching rotation.

He kept even with cohorts by tossing five shutout innings and Freddie Freeman homered as the Atlanta Braves held off the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5 on Sunday.

”It’s like a friendly competition with a fun group of guys,” Foltynewicz said. ”It’s a good vibe.”

The Braves outscored St. Louis 22-10 in sweeping a three-game series in St. Louis for the first time since May 11-13, 2012.

Tommy Pham homered for St. Louis Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , which has lost four in a row. The Cardinals scored five times in the seventh to rally from a 6-0 deficit.

Foltynewicz matched Julio Teheran and Max Fried to post the Braves third successive scoreless appearance by a starter. Teheran tossed six scoreless innings a 5-1 win on Friday. Fried did not allow a run in 6 2-3 innings of an 11-4 victory on Saturday.

”They’ve been awesome,” said Atlanta infielder Charlie Culberson, who had two hits and drove in two runs on Sunday, ”It makes it easier for us (hitters). A little bit more relaxed for us going up there.”

Foltynewicz (6-4) surrendered one hit – a fourth-inning single to Marcell Ozuna. He struck out nine and walked three in an 86-pitch outing.

”He never gave in, he kept grinding,” manager Brian Snitker said.

Foltynewicz has allowed just two hits and one run over 10 innings in two outings since coming off the disabled list with tightness in his right tricepts on June 25.

”He was kind of wildly effective,” St. Louis infielder Kolten Wong said. ”When you’re throwing as hard as he was, it makes it tough.”

The Braves three starters allowed seven hits over 17 2-3 innings with 24 strikeouts in the series.

”We’ve been feeding off each other,” Foltynewicz said. ”We’re always pulling for each other http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-phil-haynes-jersey , pushing each other, asking questions. We hang around together and you can see that we take it out to the mound. It’s been a really fun time.”

A.J. Minter picked up his third save in as many tries by setting the side down in order in the ninth. He has not allowed a run in his last seven appearances.

Freeman’s 16th homer of the season, a two-run drive, pushed the lead to 3-0 in sixth. The blow highlighted a five-run uprising that also included a run-scoring hit from Culberson.

Pham hit a three-run homer off Peter Moylan in the seventh to bring the Cardinals to within 6-5.

St. Louis starter John Gant (2-3) allowed four runs on four hits over 5 1-3 innings.

”I’ve definitely got to do better,” Gant said. ”Came out on the losing end, so anytime that happens, improvements need to be made.”

Francisco Pena had a two-run single in the seventh for St. Louis, which will play 17 of its next 20 games on the road.

The Braves have been in first place or tied for first in 60 of the last 62 days. They kicked off their 10-game road trip in style.

”To come out and win the first three games, that’s really nice Ugo Amadi Jersey ,” Culberson said. ”But this series is done. We took care of business. Time to move on.”

Atlanta infielder Ozzie Albies extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a sixth-inning single.


Braves: C Tyler Flowers returned to the starting lineup after missing Saturday’s game. He suffered a muscle cramp in the sixth inning of Friday’s 5-1 win.

Cardinals: RHP Luke Gregerson began a rehab stint with Triple-A Memphis on Sunday. He did not allow a hit over one inning. Gregerson was placed on the 10-day disabled list with shoulder impingement on May 16.


Braves RHP Anibal Sanchez (3-2, 2.68) will face RHP Jonathan Loaisiga (2-0, 1.93) in the first of a three-game series against the Yankees in New York. Sanchez is 4-1 in six lifetime starts against the Yankees.

Cardinals: RHP Carlos Martinez (4-4, 3.22) takes on Arizona LHP Robbie Ray (3-0, 4.01) in the opener of a three-game series in Arizona that kicks off a nine-game road trip. Martinez is 2-0 in three starts at Chase Field.

Even though literally nobody was asking for it http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/john-cominsky-jersey , WWE owner, Vince McMahon is bringing the XFL back to national television audiences and football fans at some point in 2020.  rosters are going to need to find real talent to pair with NFL rejects and individuals who, otherwise, would not play the sport professionally in the United States. Naturally, our eyes look to current NFL players who could potentially be convinced to join the resurrected competition for the right offers and large sums of money. We’ll see what types of deals such recognized names are offered down the road. What has to be remembered is that not all of the current NFL players spotlighted in this piece have homes with clubs as of Thanksgiving 2018. A couple of signal-callers Qadree Ollison Jersey , for example, remain active athletes and could, technically, be signed by clubs if there was an interest from a general manager and from that quarterback. Both men would be great fits in the XFL for different reasons, and both would sell merchandise and attract attention to games that casual football fans and potential viewers may otherwise ignore. Signing even half of the players mentioned in this piece could help the new XFL be more than just a one-season-and-done experiment. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Oakland Raiders are in talks with the Giants about playing their home games next season at Oracle Park in San Francisco.A person with knowledge of the negotiations said Sunday night the two sides are in discussions Brian Burns Jersey , but no deal has been reached. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because nothing has been finalized.NBC Bay Area reported that an announcement of the Raiders’ plans to play in San Francisco will be made this week.The Raiders are looking for a home for 2019 after the city of Oakland sued the team and the NFL over the planned move to Las Vegas in 2020. The Raiders has no lease for 2019 and owner Mark Davis dropped out of negotiations with Oakland after the suit was filed in December.The Raiders were still considering Oakland, as well as the possibility of sharing Levi’s Stadium with the San Francisco 49ers. A final decision is needed soon so the NFL can start making its 2019 schedule.“I think the hope of Mark is to continue to be in the Bay Area with the Raiders’ fans,” commissioner Roger Goodell said at a pre-Super Bowl news conference on Wednesday.The Raiders are still planning to practice at their facility in Alameda, making staying in the Bay Area the most logical choice.Davis has always been opposed to sharing the stadium with the 49ers and the legal wrangling with officials in Oakland have soured him on that option, leaving the Giants stadium in San Francisco as his possible preferred choice.But it doesn’t come without hurdles as the 49ers hold territorial rights to the city and the Raiders would need NFL approval to move there. The stadium would also need some modifications to be able to host NFL games and there would be scheduling issues to work out with the Giants http://www.carolinapanthersteamonline.com/greg-little-jersey , who have home games scheduled on two of first four Sundays of the upcoming NFL season.The stadium has been used for college football games in the past. There have been several bowl games played there and California played its 2011 games there when Memorial Stadium was being renovated.

 Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday http://www.lionscheapstore.com/austin-bryant-jersey-cheap , returning to his native Southern California after a decade with the Green Bay Packers.The 32-year-old Matthews set the Packers franchise record with 83½ sacks over his 10 seasons in Green Bay. The former USC star earned six Pro Bowl selections and won a Super Bowl ring with the Packers, although his 3½ sacks last season were a career low.Matthews went to high school in Agoura Hills, California, and he lives in nearby Calabasas with his wife and growing family. Both towns are a short drive from the Rams’ training complex in Thousand Oaks northwest of downtown Los Angeles.Matthews will contribute to the Rams’ pass rush alongside All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald and linebacker Dante Fowler http://www.packerscheapstore.com/rashan-gary-jersey-cheap , who re-signed with the NFC champions earlier this month. Nose tackle Ndamukong Suh is still a free agent after his sole season with Los Angeles.Matthews played four seasons for the Trojans at the Coliseum, where the Rams will play next season before moving into their multibillion-dollar stadium complex in Inglewood in 2020.Matthews won four Pac-12 titles and three Rose Bowls at USC. He famously walked onto Pete Carroll’s roster and redshirted on the Trojans’ last national championship squad before growing into a first-round NFL pick.The Rams released starting linebacker Mark Barron earlier this month, creating additional opportunities for Matthews.Matthews joins veteran safety Eric Weddle and backup quarterback Blake Bortles in the Rams’ compact class of free-agent signings. Every NFL player will eventually have a career year, even if some are ultimately more impressive than others. There’s always going to be that one season where a player manages to achieve more than they ever have before. What’s so strange about these career years Darnell Savage Jr. Jersey , however, is that they are almost impossible to predict. A player can come out of nowhere and put up a season that they can never possibly hope to match again, while a bonafide Hall of Famer seemingly at the top of their game can turn in a dud of a season that was supposed to be special.It’s a tricky piece of business to be able to spot when a career year is on the way, but there are always a few players (some big names and others http://www.packerscheapstore.com/elgton-jenkins-jersey-cheap , perhaps, not) that enter every season that appears to be on the verge of something special. Whether they’re looking for revenge, are starting to figure things out, ended the previous season on a hot streak Jace Sternberger Jersey , or found themselves in a brand new situation that benefits their particular skills, these are the top 15 players set to have a career year in 2016.

The final 10 have been decided. Let’s take a short look at each one."We made it! You helped us decide who all 30 of the Brew Crew Ball community’s top prospects were. Some of the picks drifted from the “expert” opinions. Some came out of left field. But ALL were voted on democratically and decided by you. Let’s take a look at #21-30.#21. OF Trent GrishamAge: 222018 stats (AA): 405 PA || .233/.356/.337 || 7 HR || 11 SB || 87 K || 63 BBGrisham was the Brewers’ first round pick in 2015. At the time http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , he was touted as the best high school hitter to come out of the draft. That has not exactly come to fruition. Grisham has shown grate discipline and been an adept fielder, but he has struggled to wow at the plate. The career .358 SLG is well below expectations. Still, Milwaukee has challenged the now 22-year-old throughout his professional tenure. There’s a chance that he could make the needed adjustment and become a regular outfielder. At this point, he’s organizational depth.#22. IF Antonio PineroAge: 192018 stats (Rk): 22 PA || .238/.238/.286 || 0 HR || 0 SB || 4 K || 0 BBPinero is a former international free agent known for his defensive versatility more than anything else. Since starting professional play in 2016, he hasn’t shown much of any skill with the bat. He was signed after the Red Sox lost him due to a violation of the International Free Agency rules. He has a strong arm and instincts, but his average to below average speed makes him more likely to be a third baseman than a shortstop. The bat can develop, and the Brewers have shown some confidence in him. The ceiling is still very far away for Pinero.#23. OF Je’Von WardAge: 192018 stats (Rk): 271 PA || .307/.391/.403 || 2 HR || 13 SB || 57 K || 32 BBDrafted at 17 in the 11th round of 2017, the young Ward is one of the more intriguing prospects in the entire system. Ward is still very raw, but shows phenomenal talent that the org hopes will translate into baseball skill. After some rigid work in the offseason, he showed great strides with his swing at Helena last season. He still needs to add power to his swing and develop his instincts in the outfield.#24. OF Tyrone TaylorAge: 252018 stats (AAA): 481 PA || .278/.321/.504 || 20 HR || 13 SB || 74 K || 27 BBJust a few years ago, Taylor was a top prospect in the Brewers’ org. After a few injuries that hindered his development, he’s just now crawling back into the organization’s plans. He’s a solid fielder who was the arm to play all three outfield spots. He makes average contact, but has seen a dip in his average as he tries to add more power to his swing. Taylor can be a good fourth outfielder that can handle starting responsibilities for a season or two.#25. RHP Adrian HouserAge: 252018 stats (AA-AAA): 78.2 IP || 5.03 ERA || 67 K || 25 BB || 9 HR || 1.538 WHIPMLB: 13.2 IP || 3.29 ERA || 8 K || 7 BB || 0 HR || 1.463 WHIPAfter a phenomenal pro debut, Houser had to take a step back when he suffered a UCL injury that required Tommy John Surgery. His low to mid 90’s fastball works well and he can get his above average curveball over for strikes. Houser projects to fill the back end of the rotation, or the back end of a bullpen. #26. RHP Adam HillAge: 212018 stats (A): 15.1 IP || 2.35 ERA || 26 K || 7 BB || 1 HR || 1.500 WHIPHill was an interesting acquisition from the Mets in the Keon Broxton trade. He has minimal pro-ball experience http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , but does have back end rotation potential. If the Brewers want to fast track him, the Brewers can use him as a reliever, where his ineffective command can be overcome by his talented arsenal. #27. RHP Lun ZhaoAge: 172018 stats (Rk): 8.1 IP || 1.08 ERA || 6 K || 2 BB || 0 HR || 0.960 WHIPZhao is, in my opinion, the most interesting international signing Milwaukee has made since Gilbert Lara. While Lara certainly didn’t live up to the extraordinarily high expectations, Zhao has the talent to make everyone forget that the signing even occurred. Zhao has some of the top spin rates recorded on his fastball and breaking pitches, even compared to the major leagues. At just 17, his velocity is in the high-90’s. It’s a wow experience to watch him.#28. OF Micah BelloAge: 182018 stats (Rk): 174 PA || .240/.324/.325 || 1 HR || 10 SB || 41 K || 18 BBDrafted in 2018, Bello has the tools to be an every day outfielder in the majors. His above-average speed and projection for high contact makes him an ideal top-of-the-lineup presence. Bello will of course need to make adjustments, but he has four tools that project to be average or better. His strong arm means he can play all three outfield spots confidently. He has the potential to be a Gold Glove corner outfielder, or a solid centerfielder. #29. RHP Caden LemonsAge: 202018 stats (Rk): 31.2 IP || 4.26 ERA || 28 K || 14 BB || 2 HR || 1.484 WHIPThe Brewers drafted Lemons in the second round of the 2017 draft knowing that he’d need a lot of work, but believing the end result would be worth it. Lemons can hit the upper 90’s with his fastball, has a secondary pitch that projects to be above-average, and his changeup shows potential. When everything is working, it can be easy to give Lemons a front-line grade. But Lemons needs a lot of work and has a lot of risk. His progression will be slow http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , but Milwaukee sees the potential as being well worth the risk.#30. OF Pablo AbreuAge: 192018 stats (Rk): 241 PA || .250/.335/.418 || 7 HR || 9 SB || 61 K || 28 BBAbreu was one of Milwaukee’s top international signings in 2016. He projected to be organizational depth, but has grown leaps and bounds since putting pen to paper. Based on early returns, Abreu shows five-tool potential. He has been greatly patient at the plate, continues to add surprising power, and has played admirable defense. As he continues to age, he’ll likely be relegated to left field, but should still be able to play center in a pinch. His arm would make him less than ideal in right field, but he’s capable enough. With some adjustments, he could be a 20-25 home run hitter. At 20, there’s still a lot of growth needed but the early samples have been great.Statistics courtesy of Baseball Reference Hello Angels fans!If you’re reading this, and you’re a hardcore Angels fan who has been looking for THE place to be online when it comes to all things Angels, then you are in the right place...."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Angels PregameAngels PostgameGamethreadsHalos Heaven PodcastsShohei OhtaniMinor LeaguesInterviewsHALOS HEAVEN SITEWelcome to Halos HeavenWelcome to Halos HeavenNew,21commentsByJessica DeLine@abaseballchickOct 29, 2018,9:39am PDTShareTweetShareShareWelcome to Halos HeavenTroy Taormina-USA TODAY SportsHello Angels fans!If you’re reading this Anthony Rizzo Jersey , and you’re a hardcore Angels fan who has been looking for THE place to be online when it comes to all things Angels, then you are in the right place.

For the first time since the league expanded to 32 teams in 2002 http://www.packerscheapstore.com/rashan-gary-jersey-cheap , none of the teams playing this weekend in the conference title game has a defense ranked in the top 10 in total yards. Only New England is among the top 10 in fewest points allowed.But the Chiefs, Patriots, Saints and Rams do possess the four most prolific offenses in the league. That’s the first time the four highest-scoring teams play for the conference championship during the Super Bowl era.It’s fitting one of those teams will win the Vince Lombardi Trophy because offense dominated in 2018. The 1,371 touchdowns scored were the most in a season in league history and the 11,952 points scored were the second-most ever.The two teams with the stingiest defenses reached the playoffs — Chicago and Baltimore — but lost at home in the wild-card round.“You have explosive players in the postseason, guys who are extremely talented, guys who are represented in the Pro Bowl Darnell Savage Jr. Jersey , the All-Pro team,” Saints coach Sean Payton said Wednesday.The success starts at quarterback with Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Patrick Mahomes and Jared Goff leading the way. Brady’s Patriots are the only team of the four that didn’t average at least 30 points, scoring 27.3. Kansas City led the way at 35.3 with Mahomes throwing 50 touchdown passes. Los Angeles was next at 32.9 and New Orleans averaged 31.5.Elite QBs aren’t the only thing these teams have in common. The Rams, Patriots and Saints were among the top six in rushing.C.J. Anderson (123) and Todd Gurley (115) had big games as Los Angeles ran for 273 yards in a 30-22 win against Dallas in the divisional round.Sony Michel ran for 129 yards and three TDs in New England’s 41-28 victory over the Chargers last week. Brady also threw for 343 yards.Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram combined for 124 yards rushing as New Orleans held on to beat Philadelphia 20-14. Brees had 301 yards passing and two scores.“They can beat you in both ways, they can run it or they can throw it http://www.packerscheapstore.com/elgton-jenkins-jersey-cheap ,” Rams coach Sean McVay said of the Saints. “That’s what really presents such a great challenge because they’ve got a Hall of Fame quarterback and they got an elite running back, and they’ve got a great system.”The Chiefs were in the middle of the pack on the ground during the season, but Damien Williams had 129 yards in a 31-13 rout over the Colts.“Andy’s an offensive coach so the offensive plays they get on special teams and the offensive plays they get on offense, when you combine all of that together, it’s a lot of firepower and a lot of explosive plays,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said of the Chiefs. “Andy’s teams are always tough, well-disciplined. They don’t make a lot of mistakes. They make you beat them and that’s hard to do because they’re sound Jace Sternberger Jersey , and he gets good players and he coaches them well and they’re tough.”Other than Belichick, each team has offensive-minded coaches. Payton, Reid and McVay earned their way on that side of the ball. The 32-year-old McVay is the youngest coach to win a playoff game.Both games are rematches from thrilling, high-scoring contests in the regular season.The Patriots (12-5) beat the Chiefs (14-3) 43-40 at home in October. The Saints (14-3) defeated the Rams (14-3) 45-35 at home in November.Here’s a look inside more numbers heading into championship Sunday:THREE’S COMPANY: The Patriots are trying to join Buffalo (1990-93) and Miami (1971-73) as the third team to reach the Super Bowl three consecutive seasons.HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGE: If the Saints and Chiefs win, it’ll be the 14th time since 1975 that the two top seeds meet in the Super Bowl and the fifth time in six years. BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Odell Beckham Jr. reported for Cleveland’s mandatory minicamp and will practice Tuesday after missing most of the team’s voluntary workouts.The star wide receiver has been training in California, and missed nine of 10 practices. But he’ll take part in the Browns’ three-day minicamp http://www.packerscheapstore.com/dexter-williams-jersey-cheap , where he’ll try to catch up and develop rapport with his new teammates.Last week, first-year Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said Beckham missed “a lot” during his extended absence. Kitchens’ comment was a change in tone after he defended Beckham’s decision to be away.The Browns acquired Beckham in a March trade with the Giants.Also, running back Duke Johnson is expected to be on the field after demanding a trade and sitting out OTAs. He’s upset with a reduced role after the team signed free agent Kareem Hunt.While Beckham and Johnson are back, receiver Jarvis Landry will likely be held out with an unspecified injury.

CLEARWATER http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , Fla. (AP) — Blake Snell is focused on pitching and not his minuscule salary increase.The AL Cy Young Award winner threw a called third strike past Bryce Harper with a 96 mph fastball in the first inning of the Tampa Bay Rays‘ 8-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday.Snell’s contract was renewed Sunday for a salary while in the majors of $573,700, a raise of $15,500 and a figure $18,700 above the major league minimum, which rose $10,000 to $555 Willie Mays Jersey ,000. His deal calls for a $291,000 salary in the unlikely event he is in the minors.The 26-year-old left-hander likely will be eligible for salary arbitration next winter. He declined to discuss his contract.Snell struck out two over two perfect innings.“Their lineup is nasty,” Snell said. “I really don’t key in on a guy. It’s a lefty, it’s righty, it’s what I focus on. I’ve got to attack the zone. They’re going to do what they do. I’m going to do what I do.”Snell is slated to start Tampa Bay’s March 28 against Justin Verlander and the Houston Astros.Tampa Bay also renewed the contracts of reliever Ryne Stanek ($564,200 in majors, $223 http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey ,978 in minors) and infielder Joey Wendle ($570,400 in majors and $273,450 in minors).

Four starts into the season, and the Tigers rotation looks good. However, the Blue Jays lineup is bad Madison Bumgarner Jersey , so don’t get too excited.Jeimer Candelario broke out on Sunday, but it was a rough go for the offense against a pretty good-looking Blue Jays rotation in the Rogers Centre.The bullpen was a little shaky in the backend, but got several strong performances as well.The Toledo Mud Hens kick things off on Thursday of this week, so let’s run down some of the arms in Toledo that are likely to get a crack at the majors this season.Intro: “Motor City 2” -J.

Rob Carr/Getty ImagesWhile Bryce Harper and Manny Machado will be the biggest names on the free-agent market this offseason, it could be a player already under contract for the foreseeable future who could make the biggest splash.Mike Trout.According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, the Los Angeles Angels are expected to approach Trout with extension talks that could lead to his being an Angel for life.Trout still has two years and $66.5 million remaining on the six-year Michael Brantley Jersey , $144.5 million extensionhe signed back in March 2014, perSpotrac.Even though he is under club control through the 2020 season, Los Angeles would be wise to lock him up long-term. At 27, he is already widely considered to be one of the greatest players in MLB history.Since debuting in 2011, Trout has hit .307/.416/.571 with 234 home runs, 221 doubles, 44 triples, 188 stolen bases and 637 RBI. He has made the American League All-Star team in each of his first seven full seasons. Not only that, but he has won the AL Rookie of the Year award, two AL MVPs (including three second-place and a fourth-place finish) http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , two All-Star Game MVPs and five Silver Sluggers.Again, he turned 27 in August.The biggest factor that could keep Trout from agreeing to a lifetime contract with the Angels is that the club has made the postseason just once in his career despite his lofty numbers. Los Angeles was swept by the Kansas City Royals in the 2014 American league Division Series.Trout will getpaidregardless of when he decides to ink his next deal, but as one agent told Heyman, the outfielder would be wise to wait until after Harper and Machado sign, allowing his fellow All-Stars to set the market. New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton is the owner of the largest and longest contract in MLB history, a 13-year, $325 million deal he signed with the Miami Marlins in November 2014.

A lack of quickness ain’t the problem."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Royals Trade Rumors & Hot StoveRoyals Minor Leagues & ProspectsRoyals Review ClassicRoyals Review Users GuideThe 100 Greatest Royals Of All TimeRoyals Editorials & ReactionsThe Royals are missing the point with Process 2.0New Jay Buhner Jersey ,70commentsA lack of quickness ain’t the problem.EDTShareTweetShareShareThe Royals are missing the point with Process 2.0Kansas City Royals pitcher Josh Staumont pitches to San Diego Padres center fielder Franmil Reyes during the sixth inning at Surprise Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Joe CamporealeJoe Camporeale-USA TODAY SportsThe Kansas City Royals’ first trip through the rebuilding waters was dubbed The Process. General manager Dayton Moore famously told reporters in the midst of a profoundly terrible 2009 to “Trust the process.” At the time, it was widely derided and mocked. See, Moore took over the Royals in mid-2006, and after he he had an offseason to reshape the team in his image for the first time, the Royals would win 69 games in 2007. The Royals would go on to win 65 games in 2009. Three and a half years after Moore’s regime took control, the Royals were, quite literally, moving backwards.Kansas City had a losing season in 2010, too. And 2011. And 2012. It took until 2013 for the Royals to get their first winning season under Moore, and even then they missed the playoffs. Of course, Moore and Company had the last laugh regarding Trust the Process; two consecutive World Series appearances—one ending in victory—sort of did the trick there. One could spend thousands of words talking about how the Royals accomplished what they did, but the short version is that they absolutely did not do it through savvy free agent signings or trades. John Bale. Mike Jacobs. Willie Bloomquist. Jose Guillen. Scott Podsednik. Kyle Farnsworth. Yuniesky Betancourt. Jonathan Sanchez. Jeff Francis. Rink Ankiel. Jason Kendall. Moore spent tens of millions of dollars on those free agents and trade targets and received, largely, bupkis. What the Royals did do was draft and scout like their heads were on fire. Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Alex Gordon, Danny Duffy, Greg Holland, Kelvin Herrera, Salvador Perez Denard Span Jersey , and Jarrod Dyson were all acquired and developed in-house. Wade Davis, James Shields, Lorenzo Cain, Alcides Escobar, Ben Zobrist, and Johnny Cueto were acquired in exchange for in-house talent. That yielded a talented run of teams that were a few victories away from five consecutive winning seasons.Now, the Royals stand at the precipice of Rebuild 2.0. And, of course, there’s a Process 2.0 to go along with it. Sam Mellinger’s recent piece about the Process 2.0 is a must-read for Royals fans. It includes quotes from varying members from the organization about what’s going into the Process 2.0. The article can be distilled into this quote from manager Ned Yost:In other words, the Royals are doubling down on building teams with elite speed and elite defense. They believe it is undervalued, and with Kansas City’s relatively limited financial resources that they can zig when the entire rest of the league is zagging by pursuing power and on base percentage. The 2014 and 2015 Royals squads were pretty excellent embodiments of defense and speed, and the Royals think that formula can be enhanced to work today.If you’re looking for an article critiquing this approach, this ain’t it. Everyone tends to forget, but the thesis of Moneyball was not that on base percentage was the only thing that mattered. Rather, the thesis of Moneyball is that teams searching for a competitive advantage must relentlessly pursue and exploit undervalued assets. Will Speedy Moneyball work? Maybe not. But it’s pretty sound from a large-scale strategic perspective.But the problem isn’t as the Royals present it, that they just weren’t fast enough recently:Instead, the Royals’ main problem is way, way simpler: they have been God-awful at drafting. No Moneyball strategy will work if you draft as stunningly poorly as the Royals have for the last decade.Here are the Royals’ first round draft picks going back almost 10 years with a letter grade that is a general consensus of that players’ performance:Aaron Crow, 2009: DChristian Colon, 2010: DBubba Starling http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authentic-edgar-martinez-jersey , 2011: FKyle Zimmer, 2012: FHunter Dozier, 2013: DBrandon Finnegan, 2014: DAshe Russell, 2015: FNick Pratto, 2017: IncompleteBrady Singer, 2018: Incomplete; has not made pro debutBetween 2009 and 2015, the average top draft spot that Kansas City owned was 10th. Three of those players haven’t made their MLB debut. Two more haven’t played in the bigs since at least 2017. The other two are below average players who might not have a roster spot by the end of the year. Most of the other prominent high picks in that era—Brett Eibner, Bryan Brickhouse, Foster Griffin, Chase Vallot, Nolan Watson, and Scott Blewett—have been busts so far, too.This is, frankly, unacceptable. And for Royals fans, this should be terrifying for the future. The Royals are bad not because they haven’t been slow. They haven’t been bad because they haven’t been able to compete for top free agents. They’ve been bad because they haven’t been able to draft and develop players worth a damn for a long, long, long time. The Royals’ future is binary: either the team will turn it around to draft well, scout well Ben Gamel Jersey , and develop well, leading to a group of young stars like they had in Hosmer et al and definitively proving that the team’s 2014-2015 success wasn’t simply luck. Or, they won’t, and Royals fans will endure another half decade or more or misery before the front office is eventually tossed out the window.Speed has nothing to do with it. Not directly. By focusing on that, the Process 2.0 misses the point. Justin K. Aller/Getty ImagesThe Pittsburgh Pirates traded third baseman David Freese to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for minor league infielderJesus Manuel Valdez on Friday night.Freese, 35, is hitting .283 with nine home runs and 41 RBI in 93 games. His .784 OPS ranks as his best since he was an All-Star with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2012.Freese doesn't project as a prominent contributor for the Dodgers, but he will give manager Dave Roberts another right-handed bat off the bench. Plus, he's played 105.2 innings at first base this season and can serve as a platoon option in a pinch. Pedro Moura pedromouraThe Dodgers .233/.316/.396 line against left-handed pitchers this year is below league-average. David Freese, the newest Dodger, is a career .300/.376/.458 hitter against lefties.Freese is eligible for the postseason roster should L.A. qualify since the deal took place before the end of the Aug. 31 waiver deadline.The 10-year veteran owns a $6 millionclub optionfor next season. If the Dodgers don't exercise it, they can buy out Freese for $500,000 and let him hit the open market.Valdez, meanwhile, saw his most extensive action to date as part of the Dodgers team in the Dominican Summer League. In 60 appearances, he slashed .230/.343/.412 with six home runs, 27 RBI and 16 stolen bases.

Scott Taetsch/Getty ImagesThe Miami Marlins are receiving interest in veteran outfielder Cameron Maybin from the Cleveland Indians http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-chad-bettis-jersey , New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners, Fancred's Jon Heyman reported Monday.Maybin is batting .249 with three home runs, 20 RBI and eight stolen bases in 98 games this season.The 31-year-old's trade value has surged recently based on his hot July. He's batting .303 with a .439 slugging percentage this month.The fact Maybin is on anybody's radar speaks somewhat to the dearth of proven outfield options on the market. ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick also outlined the issues regarding the best names available:Jerry Crasnick jcrasnickThe #Indians want to upgrade in CF, but its a thin market. Adam Jones is most likely staying put. Leonys Martin is out there Tyler Anderson Jersey , but hes had hamstring issues and struggles vs. lefties. Billy Hamilton is hitting .227, and the #Reds never seem interested in discussing him anyway.Even if his offense regresses to pre-July levels, Maybin's defense would make him a worthwhile addition for a playoff contender. Among outfielders who logged at least 500 innings, he's tied for 15th in ultimate zone rating (4.7) and tied for 13th in defensive runs saved (eight) http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-chad-bettis-jersey , per FanGraphs.The MLB non-waiver trade deadline passes at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, so the Marlins don't have much time to make a final decision on Maybin, who becomes a free agent in the offseason.

 Jon Gray down to the minors Jachai Polite Jersey , optioning the right-hander to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Gray was 7-7 with a 5.77 ERA over 17 starts this season, but has particularly struggled since May 13 while posting a 7.25 ERA in his last nine outings. The Rockies replaced him on the roster Saturday with outfielder Raimel Tapia, who was batting .308 with 10 home runs and 48 RBIs at Albuquerque.

Gray appeared to turn things around June 22 Chuma Edoga Jersey , when he gave up one run over seven innings in a victory over the Miami Marlins, but followed that by giving up five runs and seven hits over four innings in a loss at San Francisco on Thursday.

At the start of play Saturday, Gray was fourth in the National League with 119 strikeouts.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Jets have interviewed Philadelphia Eagles executive Joe Douglas for their general manager job.Douglas Trevon Wesco Jersey , the Eagles’ vice president of player personnel, is the third candidate to meet with New York about the opening. He met with team officials Saturday and Sunday.The Jets have also interviewed New Orleans Saints director of pro scouting Terry Fontenot and Seattle Seahawks co-director of player personnel Scott Fitterer. New York also is expected to meet with Champ Kelly, the Chicago Bears‘ assistant director of player personnel.Douglas is widely considered the favorite to land the job because he has previous work experience with Jets coach Adam Gase Shareef Miller Jersey , who is the team’s acting GM and is heavily involved in the search process. Douglas was Chicago’s director of college scouting in 2015, when Gase was the Bears’ offensive coordinator.Douglas has been with the Eagles for three years since leaving Chicago. He worked in Baltimore’s personnel department from 2000-15 in various roles.
