Giancarlo Stanton’s Big Apple debut went dramatically different than he and Austin Pettis Jersey Yankees fans had hoped, as his five-strikeout performance drew boos late in the Bronx Bombers’ home-opening win.
You put up a performance like that, you should get some boos, Stanton said at his locker to a horde of reporters following his 0-for-5 afternoon.
Gregorius finished the game 4-for-4 with two home runs and a double. He also drove in a career-high eight RBIs. He’s the first Yankees player to have a two-homer, eight-RBI game since Alex Rodriguez had three home runs and 10 RBIs against the Los Angeles Angels in 2005.
He picked me up, Stanton said of Gregorius. That’s what a cleanup hitter does — clean up the garbage in front of you.
Despite Stanton’s shoddy statistical showing, Yankees manager Aaron Boone wasn’t stressing over the down day.
I like when the big boy doesn’t get any and we’re able to score 11, Boone said. Because there’s going to be a lot of days when we hop on his back. And being that kind of day, I actually thought he looked OK at the plate. He was close on a couple. He almost clipped a couple on the balls he fouled off.
So just one of those days when you’re a big-time slugger like that, there will be days like that. The fact that we’re still able to roll out 11, I don’t even blink at it.
The Patriots likely need to add another receiver, and veterans such as Jordan Matthews, Jeremy Maclin, and Eric Decker are still available and can be had for cheap. But now the Patriots are loaded with draft picks, and can make a play for a quarterback in the first round.
The link Personality. Fit. No matter the terminologybold guy, obstreperous personality, different cat some teams seem wary of those players, while a handful of franchises respond, Bring’em on.
Elite Mens John Miller Jersey In 18 years under Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, only three Patriots receivers have achieved 1,000 yards in their first season with the club: Randy Moss and Wes Welker in 2007, and Brandin Cooks in 2017. Moss became a first ballot Pro Football Hall of Famer this year. Welker will likely enter the Patriots Hall of Fame one day. Yet Cooks, for his 65 catches, 1,082 yards, and seven touchdowns, was shipped out of town after his one season in New England, traded to the Rams on Tuesday for the rough equivalent of a late first/early second-round pick.
