Phillies RHP Aaron Nola ties Tom Seaver strikeout mark

Any time you tie a pitching record from Tom Seaver, it was probably a good day. Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola entered the history books on Friday by striking out 10 consecutive batters, tying but not breaking the New York Mets legend’s 51-year-old record. It was the first game of a planned doubleheader. Facing Seaver’s own Mets team, Nola opened the game by hitting Jeff McNeil with a pitch and allowing a double to Francisco Lindor, but then a run of sheer dominance began. Nola… Source link

Packers president Mark Murphy calls Aaron Rodgers ‘a complicated fella’

There’s still no movement on the situation between Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. He didn’t report for the team’s mandatory minicamp earlier in the week, and the Packers haven’t given any clues about what they have done or plan to do to get him back on the field.  So in the absence of any new information (or any information he wanted to share), Packers president Mark Murphy broke out an old quote from the late, legendary Packers GM Ted Thompson to describe Rodgers at a Lambeau… Source link

Lamar Odom TKOs Aaron Carter

Lamar Odom had little trouble with Aaron Carter. (Photo by Paras Griffin/Getty Images) Lamar Odom was once a professional basketball player and Aaron Carter was once a pop star. The pair spent Friday taking part in the most present of trends, a celebrity boxing match. To the surprise of few, the bout ended with the 6-foot-10 man beating up the man who is not 6-foot-10, with Odom defeating Carter via second-round TKO.  The footage of the fight is, um, bleak: Odom’s strategy for the fight… Source link

Aaron Rodgers skips mandatory Packers minicamp

The Green Bay Packers kicked off their full squad minicamp Tuesday without Aaron Rodgers, marking the first time in Rodgers’ 16-year NFL career that he is a holdout.  The star quarterback appears to have now skipped the entire Packers offseason program, as he had already failed to show up for all three phases of the franchise’s voluntary workout sessions (also a first in his career). Unless he inexplicably decides to show up in the middle of camp, the next mandatory reporting date for… Source link

Aaron Rodgers will send Packers message either way with OTAs

Over the weekend, when Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy addressed fan questions in his monthly exchange on the team website, there was some public messaging that resonated loudly in the team’s impasse with quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The most headline-grabby statement from Murphy about his star quarterback — which came in somewhat unprompted fashion — was that the situation with Rodgers has divided the fan base. It was an interesting, albeit unscientific point of reflection. But… Source link

Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson trades about to become simpler

As the NFL rolls toward arguably the only dead period in its 12-month calendar, the two biggest rifts in the league — Aaron Rodgers vs. the Green Bay Packers and Deshaun Watson vs. the Houston Texans — are about to cross an important threshold. Come Wednesday, both Rodgers and Watson will officially become easier to trade, thanks to a provision that allows NFL teams to split salary cap hits over two seasons if a player is released or traded after June 1. That doesn’t mean a deal for… Source link

Austin Riley, Aaron Judge on hot streaks

Baseball is a grind — and the fantasy version of the game is no different. And because it’s a grind, baseball features streaks. Hitters can get hot at the plate, seemingly seeing beach balls thrown at them. Pitchers can get hot on the mound, too. And of course, both can get freezing cold. In this space, we’ll take a weekly look at who’s hot and who’s not — and whether you should believe in the streak. (Editor’s note: All stats derived before game action on Sunday, May 23) HOT STREAKS Don’t… Source link

Aaron Rodgers to appear on Kenny Mayne’s ESPN finale

Aaron Rodgers is going to say something next week. It may not have anything to do with his standoff against the Green Bay Packers, and it may not be related to the NFL, but putting his face before a large media spotlight will mean something. For the second time since news emerged that Rodgers was upset with the Packers and didn’t want to return to the team, the quarterback will make a media appearance of sorts. First it was with NBC’s Mike Tirico at the Kentucky Derby, when Rodgers said… Source link
