starting pitcher dropped to 0-3 on the year by taking the loss Wednesday despite holding the Rays to three earned runs on seven hits and one walk in eight innings, striking out four. It was Koehler’s third straight quality start and his longest outing of the year.

Both starting pitchers completed at least eight innings while throwing less than 100 pitches in this quick game. Despite his ugly record, Koehler owns a 3.22 ERA in 36 1/3 innings with the Marlins this year. He’s scheduled to face the Phillies Monday in his next start.

Patriots Spygate 2.0: Investigators reportedly struggling to find connection with videographer, football ops


The NFL has officially begun its investigation into the for videotaping the sideline during their Dec. 8 matchup with the in Cleveland. According to , investigators have interviewed members of the Patriots organization over the past few days ans urged Alexis Sanchez to change his attitude at Manchester United.The former United striker says Alexis needs to find a way to be happier in his work.”He doesn’t look very happy to me,” Van Persie says. “He looked happy aar was due to his knee.Fekir, who joined Real Betis this summer, was on his way to Anfield in the summer of 2018 before the deal fell through at the 11th hour.Liverpool pulled the plug due to a long-standing knee problem but Fekir denies this versiont Arsenal. He doesn’t look hd have also collected devices from some individuals in an attempt to connect with video crew with football operations. 

It’s New England’s contention that this on the part of the videographer, , and there was as he was simply shooting a “Do You Job” feature on an advance scout. Of course, given the Patriots history with crossing the legal lines of the NFL rulebook, the benefit of the doubt is nonexistent. 

So far, however, it appears like the Patriots have been forthright, as there has yet to be a connection that links this admitted misstep to football operations, which is reportedly irking NFL investigators. 

“As one source explained it, there’s a sense that investigatorr Mohamed Salah after he pulled out of the Egypt squad.Liverpool are sweating over the fitness of Salah for their game against Crystal Palace as the forward pulls out of the Egypt squad with an ankle injury.The Egyptian continues to be plagued by an s want to make that connection, and a perception that they are showing frustration when unable to tie the video crew to the football employees,” Florio writes. 

Establishing a link between the videographer and the football operations side of things for New England is key to the NFL’s investigation as it would say that the tapes were being used for an illegal competitive advantage. Naturally, that would garner a much more serious punishment handed down by the league, including the possibility of a loss of draft picks. 

If it remains the status quo and a link cannot be made, the penalty will likely be much less severe, likely in the form of a fine. 

In any event, is reporting that the league could come down with a ruling on this as early as this week, so we likely won’t have to wait too much longer to find out the investigators assessment on the situation.

A Giants scout ‘pushed hard’ for GM to take Tom Brady back in 2000 draft


became the winningest quarterback in NFL history on Sunday with a win over the Jets, passing with his 187th career victory. “QB Wins” is a dumb stat, but we’ll make an exception because Brady is pretty good. 

Brady’s legacy is made better too by the fact that, and stop me if you’ve heard this before, he was taken with the 199th selection in the 2000 . No one really wanted theassembled.Solskjaer admits having ex-United players return is important.He stated, “We’ve got a couple of ex-Manchester United people, even ex-players. You’ve got Mike Clegg, who I played with and had his dad as a coach in the gym here. We’ve got Ric greatest quarterback of all time when he came out of college. Hindsight tells us otherwise, though, in a very convenient fashion.

Former GM Bill Polian talks and now the can be added to the list, as a group of former Giants personnel men told for Brady back in the day. 

That scout, Whitey Walsh (which is just an incredible football scout name, by the way), was assigned to go watch Michigan when Brady was a senior. Brady wasn’t on his list of guys to check out — starting quarterback Drew Henson was — but Walsh had a policy in place about scoping out seniors on the team regardless.

“But I always thought you should look at any senior who is starting; maybe they have something,” Walsh told O’Connor. “You watch four, five, six plays, and if they don’t show anything you leave them off the list. I watched Brady, and he was actually pretty good. He was very careful with his passes, very accurate, no interceptions. I wondered if how with the news that Ciaran Clark is out for the rest of the season.The 30-year-old is also going to miss his country Republic of Ireland’s Euro 2020 playoff against Slovakia.He suffered a serious injury against Arsenal, hurting his ankle.Now it hasis arm would be strong enough. If you saw him — and he was listed that day at 6-foot-5, 195 pounds — he didn’t look good. He looked kind of emaciated, with no muscle definition.”

Walsh would go back to see another Michigan game and this time be impressed enough with Brady to “add him to the list.” 

“I put him on the list, and figured, it can’t hurt. Let’s give him a grade and at least we can talk about him,” Walsh recalled. “Turns out nobody else [with the Giants] had his name down. I gave Brady a middle-to-late-round grade, and when I was in the draft room I guess I got drowned out. Whoever heard of Tom Brady?”

As it turns out, no one had heard of Brady. Orournemouth boss Eddie Howe is full of praise for Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.Henderson appears likely to miss a fourth successive game due to a hamstring injury when Bournemouth visit Anfield on Saturday, with the midfielder’s absence having c people had, but no one was clamoring to draft him. Even the passed on him six times, including once 12 picks before Brady was actually selected. It is the ultimate evidence for . 

But this is not some in-passing tale of a scout who loved Brady and didn’t try to say anything during the draft. The Giants GM at the time, Ernie Accorsi, said Walsh was “very forceful” and “fought hard” to draft Brady in the middle-to-late rounds.

“He didn’t just bring it up,” Accorsi said. “He was very forceful. Fought hard. No one listened. … It’s my fault that I didn’t act on his urging to draft Brady.

“Truly, the Brady story is one of the great mysteries of all time. It’s not like he was playing at Augustana. He threw four touchdown passes in the Orange Bowl against Alabama. … We were all asleep.”

The is kind of dumb when it comes to the draft and it’s just a fact of life in the league. Mistakes get made every year, massive ones that cost people their jobs and end up making media members and front office folks look foolish. 

The Brady one will probably go down as the biggest mistake, even if there were some people trying to stop it from happening. Fortunately for the Giants, they made up for it by drafting four years later. Manning might not have the same number of titles as Brady does, but he did pick up a pair for the Giants at Brady’s expense. That’s a pretty decent little consolation prize.
