  1. Why we should all want to be more like T

    Give Tim Tebow credit: He's not afraid to chase big things.He's not afraid to set big goals. He's not afraid to put himself out there. He's not afraid to fail.MORE: Dispatches from Tebow's MLB tryoutWe should all Jackie Robinson Jersey be more like Tim Tebow.The former Heisman winner and NFL quarterback auditioned Tuesday for a bunch of major league teams in hopes of launching a career on the diamond. Yes, the odds are long, perhaps impo sible. But that doesn't mean it's not worth the effort.Whether born from an actual desire to play, or just a publicity stunt, Tebow's tryout shows the value of taking risks, the value of always trying to get better. If it works, the reward is great. If it doesn't, at least you gave it all you had. At least you know.Too often we don't try things because they seem too hard. We're afraid it Yankees Cool Base Navy Jersey won't work. We're afraid of embarra sment. So the potential of a big payoff takes a back seat to our fears. But the truth is that we never really know how something will play out until we try.We think we know how Tebow's baseball career will go, given that he hasn't played since high school, but we don't. Monday night, it was reported than a respected and succe sful team in Venezuela has offered Tebow a contract to play there this winter. Should MLB teams pa s on him, as most observers expect, Tebow might still get to play Men's New York Yankees Gray Jersey pro baseball.MORE: All 30 MLB managers, rankedAlready, I'd say, his risk has paid off. He can give it a shot against toughcompetition and see how he stacks up. You never know.Tebow's generated a lot of laughs and a lot of eye rolls since he announced his plans to pursue baseball. So many people Aaron Judge Youth 2018 MLB All-Star Game Jersey seem to want him to fail for entertainment value, to maintain some apparent understanding that we're not supposed to like Tim Tebow. Sure, he's a nice guy, people say, but come on. He's only here to entertain us through his shortcomings.If he fails, so be it. We shouldn't laugh. We shouldn't take pleasure. At least he tried. It's an old le son, but it's a valuable one.Regardle s of Tebow'soutcome, we should ask ourselves why we aren't more willing to take risks when the Men's New York Yankees Team Jersey right opportunity arises. If we see something we want, we should go for it. There's value in trying.You never know for sure until you gofor it.Despite all the jokes and memes and head-shakingsighs, Tebow doesn't care what we think. He knows what he wants, and he's going for it.You have to admire that.

  8. MLBs 2017 schedule 10 things you need to

    Baseball released its 2017 schedule on Wednesday.Quick things to know: Opening day is April 2, with two games, and everyone else plays the next day; Core interleague matchups: AL East vs. NL Central, AL Central vs. NL West and AL West vs. NL East; final regular-season games are October 1 (which means the World Series could end before November starts). The day-by-day schedule is here.Now, on to 10 things you need to know about Chicago Cubs White Jerseys the 2017 slate.MORE: The 12 ugliest September collapses of all timeBest opening pitching matchup: Jose Fernandez (Marlins) vs. Max Scherzer (Nationals). Well set the over/under at 21 strikeouts by the starters in this showdown between two of the nastiest pitchers in the sport.Best opening series: Cubs at Cardinals. This has long one of MLBs most intense rivalries especially for the fans and both teams are actually really good, which has been a bit of a rarity over the past hundred-something seasons. Its the first of 18 contests between the two teams in 2017; heres hoping there isnt much separation between them in the standings all season.Worst opening series: Phillies at Reds. Blah. Neither franchise will contend in 2017. But, hey, optimism still will abound on opening day, and theyre both at least trending in the Addison Russell Jersey right direction. And, admittedly, its always cool to see an opener in Cincinnati.Worst home opener: Padres at Braves, April 14. Seriously, the way the Braves went about getting their new stadium in suburban Atlanta is kind of slimy and disgusting (the Cobb County politicians deserve most of the criticism). Dont celebrate the first game in SunTrust Stadium, and good luck fighting traffic if you go in person.Best day: Jackie Robinson Day, April 15. All the players wear No. 42 for the day. Its just an awesome, wonderful Javier Baez Cool Base White Jersey reminder of a player who changed the sport forever.Best throwback event: As at Rays doubleheader, June 10. Its an actual single-admi sion scheduled double-header, the first since 2011. The single admi sion part means the ballpark wont be cleared out between games, and one ticket promises 18 innings of baseball, not just nine. These used to happen all the time (decades ago), so its pretty darn cool to see this on the schedule (both teams are off on June 12, btw, to make up for the doubleheader).Best interleague individual matchup: Mike Trout (Angels) vs. Bryce Harper (Nationals), Aug. 15-16. Weve debated these two guys for years now, and theyll square off (if theyre healthy) for a couple days in DC next summer. Good times.Best homecoming: Cubs at Rays, Sept. 19-20. Yep, its a manager homecoming. Longtime Angels coach Joe Maddon finally got his chance to manage in the big leagues when he took over a Tampa Bay franchise that had known nothing but extensive losing. Obviously, that changed quickly. Rays fans might not have been happy with the way he left town after the Anthony Rizzo Cool Base White Jersey 2014 season, but hell certainly get a hearty cheer when he makes his first official trip back to The Trop.Worst season-ending series: As at Rangers. The As probably wont be very good next year. The Rangers probably will be very, Jake Arrieta Jersey very good. Best we can hope for out of this one is Oakland playing the spoiler or Cole Hamels throwing a no-hitter against a youthful As lineup. Actually, either of those things would be pretty entertaining. Baseballs the best.Best season-ending series: Blue Jays at Yankees. The last weekend of has the potential to feature lots of teams in playoff contention facing teams not in contention (Reds-Cubs, Brewers-Cardinals, etc). But both of these two AL squads should be directly in competition for playoff berths/positioning, and theres little love lost between the two teams. The Astros-Red Sox series should be pretty good, too, but well give the Jays-Yanks the nod because division rivalries are the best.

Hinch said. "Obviously, it doesn't feel good to have to scratch him, but we're going to continue to be conservative with him especially. He's had an up-and-down year when dealing with stuff. So, when he reported that he had a little bit of Orlando Cepeda Jersey symptoms during playing catch (Tuesday)we were going to scratch him."Mike Fiers, who lost his spot in the rotation early last week, will start in McCullers' place as the Astros (87-57) find themselves 1 1/2 games back of the streaking Indians (82-62) entering Wednesday's play in the race for the best record in the Greg Maddux Jersey American Leagueand home-field advantage throughout the AL playoffs.

  12. Phillies manager to Ryan Howard Hit bett

    Ryan Howard was once the star of the Phillies, anAll-Star in 2006, '09 and '10. Now he's mainly warming benches.His playing time started to dwindle near the end of Lonnie Chisenhall Jersey last season and he didn't play at all in the team's final17 games.

"If you want to play every day, you have to show me you can play better, you can hit better. That determines a lot. If you show me you cant, or youre not hitting better, than youre not going to play."The Phillies have other options at first base, such as Darin Ruf. Last season, Ruf hit better, so it's only natural that Mackanin feels comfortable playing him over the 36-year-oldHoward. Mackanin did say it was a "difficult situation" given Howard's previous succe s with the team, but he Danny Salazar Jersey 's just not the same player.At this point in time, like I said, Im going to have a discu sion with Ryan and Im going to tell him that if you want to face lefties, youve got to hit them better," he said. "If you dont hit them better, Im going to platoon. Its basically what were looking at. Its Jose Ramirez 2018 MLB All-Star Game Jersey gotten to that point.And if it comes to that, I think it could be helpful to Ryan and to Darin Ruf. Once again, its hard for me to justify not playing someone who led in OPS in the major leagues against left-handed pitchers (.418) and thats Darin Ruf. Its hard for me not to play that guy when Ive got that guy Yonder Alonso Jersey sitting there to try to win games.
  13. White Tremaine Edmunds has commanded the

    The Bills are taking their time with Josh Allen, easing the rookie quarterback into the rotation behind AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman. The same can't be said for Buffalo's other first-round draft pick. When general manager Brandon Beane traded up for Tremaine Edmunds at No. 16 Mens Barry Sanders Blue Jersey overall, the Virginia Tech linebacker was immediately expected to fill a glaring hole as the focal point of Sean McDermott's defense. Edmunds has surpa sed expectations in spring practices, rarely leaving his middle-linebacker position during first-team reps. Appearing on Tuesday's Men's Barry Sanders Legend Jersey edition of Good Morning Football, second-year cornerback Tre'Davious White predicted that Edmunds would be "one of the best young linebackers in the league" by training camp this summer. "This is an alpha male here," White Game Calvin Johnson Light Blue Jersey said. "The guy goes sideline to sideline, he's a 4.4 [forty-yard dash] guy. He has tremendous brains, athleticism, his knowledge of the game is next to none. "Since the first day he's got here, man, he's commanded the huddle on the defensive side of the ball. You could tell by OTAs he's been getting tremendously comfortable in the playbook and every day Glover Quin Jersey he's getting better and better. By that first game, he's going to be knocking folks around." One of the NFL's youngest players at age 20, Edmunds projects as the beating heart of Buffalo's defense over the next half-decade. Given his unique physical gifts and a prime opportunity to make plays on a weekly basis, he will enter the season Darius Slay Jersey as a favorite for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.
