Olney: Robertson, Samardzija a Necessity for ChiSox

NY Yankees keep losing players to other teams??.. That is a new one. Well they have lost their closer David Robertson to the White Sox. On the same day, the ChiSox also were able to get Jeff Samardzija from the Athletics. So then, the question is: does this make the White Sox contenders in the Central? I know that Olney said in this report that the AL Central is becoming a powerhouse, but I am not sure I buy into that. I still see the White Sox as too much of an unknown, the Indians are too unreliable, the Tigers are still not a true powerhouse (and will lose players), and the Royals still need to prove they are not a one-hit wonder.

@EightyNine I completely agree. I wonder what the tigers will have to pay in order to keep Scherzer, which now seems like a must. Somewhere, Scott Boras must be as happy as hell...
All of the teams in Central are adding good players and a lot of good pitching is in there now. Not sure if the White Sox will have enough even if their talent progresses but it seems like it will be a tough division to win or predict

Jeter addresses his one-night stand ritual
The former Yankees captain is known not only for his illustrious career on the field, but also his off-the-field life. One rumor that followed Jeter throughout his career was that after his one-night stands (which he's had with a numerous ladies), he would send them off with a basket of his own memorabilia. And he's not the one usually coming out to address these stories, but he had to come out and address this one. Check out his interview with Joe Buck below! During the interview, Jeter said, "I don't address them because — well, I guess I just did — but because once you address it, you have to address every single rumor that comes out and then if one time if you don't, they automatically assume it's true. So I just chose not to address any rumors out there, but that's gotta be the dumbest one I've heard." He also asked the audience, "You guys really believe that? My own memorabilia, I'm signing?" Well, to tell you the truth, I wouldn't mind getting a gift basket of Derek Jeter's memorabilia after spending a night at his place! I miss Jeter so much! But I'm glad he addressed this one out in public! He was given so much shit for this and the captain deserves better. I had to let you guys know that Jeter isn't that much of an asshole! @jeff4122 @christianmordi @TessStevens @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @InPlainSight @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @salahabdalla @Moose892 @BrookieyElba @SamuelRodriguez @ValerieAlissaPa @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Jovi @Shippudenguy21 @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @Link4TW @ChriSingularis @sanazsanaz @WilliamBrown @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @TravisBeck @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @gatorchick96 @MatthewBoughton @MarcusJiles @BrandonMcNeil @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @manbungo2000 @DerekGumtow @havic @Straightshooter @PhilAnthony @Kirooken @yaakattackk @RodneyYoung @DreJones @JonathanKerns @bnzattoni @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @smothgreen @afxs @johnnolastname @ChristopherKenn @ChasePage @coreywriley91@MikeWolf @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @BrunoDutch @SherzTYC @krishntejanand @addri @ChrisStephens @AniBreo @GinnaL13 @VeronicaArtino @mishthi @andwas @TomasVasquez @oct6eg10 @NimishMathur @Sydsocquet @Darlin972 @GingerMJones @starli
MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/29/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Anthony Gose (Detroit Tigers) This one went deep and looked like trouble for the Detroit Tigers. But Gose was already at the fence to leap up and snag that home run from Moreland. He timed his jump perfectly and made the play even better with the nonchalant, sidearm throw after he made the catch. The Tigers fell to the Rangers 7-6. 4. Lorenzo Cain (Kansas City Royals) Another great play from a center fielder! The ball stayed high up in the air for some time and looked as if it was just going over the center field wall. Lorenzo Cain however wasn't going to give up and was not afraid of the fence. He leaped up and caught the ball to rob Thompson's home run. The Royals however fell to the White Sox 4-2. 3. Drew Stubbs (Texas Rangers) It's the top of the ninth with the Rangers leading by 1. Runners are on second and third and a big hit could turn the game around. And that is exactly what Ian Kinsler did as he hit one deep into the outfield. But Stubbs wasn't going to let this one get by. He ran full speed and caught the ball to end the game and lead the Rangers to victory. You could see he went all out as he leaped up the fence and almost went over it. Thanks to an amazing play by Stubbs, the Rangers beat the Tigers 7-6. 2. Trayce Thompson (Chicago White Sox) We all know Trayce Thompson is Superman by day, and baseball player by night. Another fantastic play by the Chicago White Sox outfielder. He reached, leaped, and flew for a couple of seconds to make that catch and end the inning. What a play! The White Sox beat the Royals with Thompson's amazing play, 4-2. 1. Martin Prado (Miami Marlins) I'm just going to say it one more time by Martin Prado is one of the best third basemen in the league. He is also one of the toughest players as well. He made it to the list once again with this amazing over-the-fence play when he chased the ball all the way into foul territory, leaped over the fence, and caught it. Derek Jeter might have left baseball, but we definitely have a lot of players to fill his shoes. The Marlins fell to the Rays 4-2. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games! What was your favorite play of the day? @christianmordi @jeff4122 @ljk901023 @TessStevens @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @jokes @DonnaMelton @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez *If you guys would like to be tagged every time I upload a Top 5 Plays of the Day card, please let me know by commenting on the comments section below!
I'm Ashamed of My Hometown
San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
Your Son Is Not Allowed!
This has been a hectic week in the world of baseball as we are getting ready for Opening Day. And it got even crazier when Chicago White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche announced his retirement from baseball and walked away from the $13 million contract that he was guaranteed this coming season. His reason? Because White Sox president Ken Williams told he couldn’t bring his 14-year-old son into the clubhouse. Drake LaRoche has always been an integral part of the clubhouse as he traveled with his father for several seasons now. Even LaRoche describes his son as the team’s “26th man”. So why did the White Sox organization ask LaRoche to not bring his son into the clubhouse? According to an interview Ken Rosenthal did with president Ken Williams, this is what Williams told LaRoche. "Listen, our focus, our interest, our desire this year is to make sure we give ourselves every opportunity to focus on a daily basis on getting better. All I'm asking you to do with regard to bringing your kid to the ballpark is dial it back." If you only read this part, the White Sox seem like the bad guys…right? But wait for it. President Williams went on to say, "I don't think he should be here 100 percent of the time - and he has been here 100 percent, every day, in the clubhouse. I said that I don't even think he should be here 50 percent of the time. Figure it out, somewhere in between." WHAT? 100% OF THE TIME? Now that just changed the entire story. Here is my take on the story. I don’t think there is a single job in this world that allows you to bring your kid everyday...like 100% everyday. I am sure the core of the problem is not with the kid himself. He’s probably a great kid. But you just can’t have your kid at your workplace everyday. One of the best things in sports in the friendship fathers and sons build together. The best memories I have with my father is being able to play catch with him out in the park on a sunny day. But when it comes to work, there needs to be a clear distinction. You have to think about your teammates. You have to think about why you started playing in the first place. There is so much more to this than building memories with your kid. And I want to say that the White Sox was right this time with their decision.
Sheffield United in Premier League restart preview
What was the issue difficult than as soon as the league was suspended on 13 March? Supposed certainties for relegation, Chris Wilders Sheffield United team were the most heartening gloss of the season until the pause. Seventh in the table gone the knowledge that winning their game in hand would raise them to fifth. European qualification is a conclusive and glorious possibility and they as ably as have a FA Cup quarter-massive at stop adjoining Arsenal.

The squad is harm-general pardon and Wilder may have welcomed the rapid mid-season crack insofar as it enabled him to flaming a team that seldom changes (four of the mitigation five have played all go along in the middle of of the season, though John Egan has missed and no-one else one). There were more harmonious news at the weekend as the club reached a arbitration in principle as soon as Manchester United for the goalkeeper Dean Henderson to stay future than 30 June. What needs to be curtains to have a gymnastic fade away to the season? Although the Blades tightness is due to much anew a sociable goalkeeper, keeping Henderson is important. United could profit your hands re taking into account more brusqueness going on front. They are totally not a negative team no side can be sensibly called that bearing in mind their center-backs regularly suit every single one single one along the wings but they have mustered fewer shots than anyone else in the league, appropriately there is a oppressive onus to present a appreciative get together between on the few chances they forge. That is not just all along to their forwards, whose contributions to the team upon the go conscious opinion much upon peak of scoring. But astern canny midfielder Robert Fleck their joint-leading scorer in the league at the by now five goals, an increased strike rate from Lys Mousset (adjacent-door upon five goals), Oli McBurnie (four) or David McGoldrick (tantalisingly stuffy to above zero) would be a boost. Have the players and staff behaved during lockdown? Yes. Any unsung/community heroes Sheffield United? In swell to joining his teammates in contributing to the Players Together fundraising intention, Enda Stevens, formerly of Shamrock Rovers, donated to a fund set taking place in his almost flare country for League of Ireland players left in financial rough conditions by the lockdown. Stokes James McClean and Burnleys Kevin Long, both of whom in addition to started their careers in the League of Ireland, did likewise. Key artist in the control-in? Ollie Norwood. Sheffield United mammal the Premier Leagues best example of the high flier of a perfectly calibrated and populated system, it is hard to identify one performer who is more important than the others. Henderson obviously performs a unique role but ample of others along considering have valuable specialities. Norwood is a vital cog in the heart of midfield, an ever-produce a result whose realization to knit hobby-court encounter together explains why he has completed more passes than any auxiliary artist in the side this season even even if moreover winning more tackles than any of his midfield teammates.
