Atletico’s Godin ’90 percent sure’ to join Inter Milan in summer – source

10

Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin is “90 percent sure” to join Inter Milan this summer, a source close to the player has told ESPN FC.

The 33-year-old is out of contract in June, having won eight trophies including a La Liga title since joining from Villarreal in 2010, and has also been linked with Manchester United, AC Milan and Juventus.

However the Uruguay international is almost certain to take up Inter’s offer of a three-year contract and leave at the end of the campaign, ESPN FC has been told.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap

The source maintained it was still possible for Atletico to retain Godin, but a club policy of not giving extensions of more than 12 months to players aged over 30 means that is unlikely.10

United made an attempt to sign Godin last summer — but he cited “personal reasons” for staying in Spain.

It was claimed at that time that Atletico had offered him a deal which ran until June 2021, although no such agreement was ever signed.

Godin is not the only experienced Atletico defender in a similar situation, with full-backs Juanfran, 34, and Filipe Luis, 33, also coming to the end of their deals and likely to move on.cheap wholesale nike nfl jerseys

Meanwhile, Lucas Hernandez has agreed a move to Bayern Munich in the summer, after the Bundesliga leaders met the France international’s €80 million buy-out clause.

Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico is among the potential replacements for Hernandez, according to ESPN FC sources.

The Rojiblanco hierarchy are also looking at Benfica’s Ruben Diaz, Getafe’s Mathias Olivera and Porto’s Alex Telles.

Atletico Madrid’s Costa banned for eight games for insulting referee’s mother

9

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa has been banned for eight games after he was sent off for insulting referee Jesus Gil Manzano’s mother in last Saturday’s defeat to Barcelona.

Costa was shown a straight red card in the 28th minute of the match after he approached Gil Manzano in the middle of the pitch and shouted in his face. The details of his outburst were included the referee’s report following the game and the audio of the incident was reviewed by the league’s refereeing committee.cheap official nike nfl jerseys

Atletico Madrid have 10 days to appeal the ban and sources have told ESPN FC they will do so. The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) sanctioned Costa four matches for his comments to the referee and added another four matches of sanction after Costa was seen grabbing Gil Manzano’s arm after the red card was shown.

Atletico president Enrique Cerezo said on Thursday that while he understood Costa’s frustrations with La Liga officiating, he felt that insulting a referee is never a wise practice.9

“Those are the rules, insulting a referee warrants a ban between four and eight matches. We will have to see whether they consider our appeal and what will happen. I think that in our appeal we will be able to make the defence we wish to make,” Cerezo told reporters on Thursday. “I did not expect it to a ban for so many matches. But if that is the decision they reached, well, they must have their reasons. It is a shame because each player has a different temperament on the pitch. Diego was getting fouled a lot and I guess you just reach the moment when you have to get angry. But an insult [to the ref] is never justified.

If the suspension holds, the Spanish international will miss the rest of the season as Atletico only have seven La Liga fixtures remaining. Last Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to title rivals Barcelona left Diego Simeone’s side 11 points adrift of the league leaders, while Atletico have also been eliminated from the Champions League and the Copa del Rey.

The RFEF also fined Costa €6,010 and Atletico €2,800.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap

After Saturday’s match, Simeone blamed the red card on bad luck and said that Barcelona players get away with similar incidents.

“I asked the referee if what he said was so bad because we have seen Barca players do the same thing, saying things right in the referee’s face and they did not get sent off, they got away with it,” Simeone said.

“If Costa really said what the referee claims he did, then he was correctly sent off, but we must be doing something wrong as we have had seven players sent off in 11 games.”

Archer banned 5 games, Puig gets 2 for melee

10

Pittsburgh Pirates starter Chris Archer received a five-game suspension and Cincinnati Reds outfielder Yasiel Puig got a two-game ban for their roles in a melee Sunday at PNC Park.

Reds manager David Bell also received a one-game suspension and, like Puig, an undisclosed fine for what the league called their “aggressive actions during the incident.” Bell and Puig will begin serving their suspensions Tuesday night, while Archer’s ban is subject to appeal. He was also fined.cheap nfl jerseys nike china

The benches-clearing incident happened in the top of the fourth inning of the Reds’ 7-5 loss to the Pirates.

Archer threw a 93-mph fastball behind Reds first baseman Derek Dietrich’s back to spark the incident. Dietrich had homered in the second inning and had stared at his blast before circling the bases, apparently angering Archer.10

Warnings were issued to both teams, but Bell came onto the field to argue with home plate umpire Jeff Kellogg that Archer should have been ejected. Players from both teams then began to push one another.cheap nfl jerseys from china nike

After the situation seemed to settle down, Puig charged toward Pirates pitcher Trevor Williams at home plate and had to be restrained, reigniting the incident. Puig grabbed Pirates bench coach Tom Prince and tried to put him in a headlock.

Three Reds (Bell, Puig and relief pitcher Amir Garrett) and two Pirates (relievers Keone Kela and Felipe Vazquez) were ejected.

“I was trying to go in,” Archer said. “I air-mailed a couple balls today, a couple that I was trying to elevate, a couple that I yanked when righties were up there. Another one that I just yanked.”

“I missed — missed my spot,” he added.

Lester to IL for hamstring issue; Collins up

9

Cubs ace Jon Lester was placed on the 10-day injured list because of a left hamstring injury suffered in Monday’s home opener against the Pirates.

Appearing on 670 The Score radio Tuesday, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said that Lester will miss one or two starts but didn’t confirm a trip to the IL. On Wednesday Maddon said that Tyler Chatwood would start Sunday in Lester’s spot.

“We could avoid using that spot just based on off-days,” Maddon said. “And if we get some rainouts in there, which we don’t want, but if it were to happen other things can happen too.”cheap nfl jerseys from china nike

The Cubs called up lefty Tim Collins Wednesday to take Lester’s place on the roster. Collins, who appeared in 38 games for the Nationals last season after returning from back-to-back Tommy John surgeries, was signed very late in the spring by the Cubs.

Lester left the game in the third inning of Monday’s 10-0 victory.9

He sent out a tweet about his injury earlier Tuesday. It was not clear if he knew at the time that he was heading to the IL.

“I didn’t feel anything as far as a pop or anything like that,” Lester said after the game. “Kind of more along the cramping sensation. We’ll find out more [Tuesday].”cheap nfl jerseys nike china

Lester’s injury occurred while he was running the bases in the bottom of the second inning. He slid into second base on an RBI double and moments later slid into home as part of a six-run inning by the Cubs. The veteran says he’s never had leg problems before. (Lester, 35, has made at least 31 starts every season since 2008.)

“In my mind, I’m making my next start,” he said. “[Tuesday] may tell us something different.”

While warming up before the top of the third, Lester grabbed his left hamstring. He then faced two batters, allowing both to reach, before Maddon went and got him. Brad Brach replaced Lester.

Tavares jeered as ‘traitor’ in hostile Isles return

10

John Tavares stepped on the ice 18 seconds into Thursday night’s game at Nassau Coliseum. For the first nine years of his NHL career, this would have elicited cheers from New York Islanders fans. Now, for the first time, Tavares was on Long Island wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey, having left the Islanders for the Leafs as a free agent last summer.

So the fans booed Tavares, loudly and lengthily. They chanted “JT sucks!” and “We don’t need you!” along with a few more anatomical phrases. Every time he was near the puck, they jeered.cheap nfl jerseys china nike

“They always made it tough on the opponent when I played here,” Tavares said after the 6-1 loss to the Islanders. “They have their feelings, and that’s out of my control.”10

Before the game, the parking lot was filled with fans who had defaced their Tavares Islanders jerseys with nameplates that read “Traitor” and “Judas” and “Better Without You,” and turned his No. 91 into images of snakes. They placed his jersey on the road where cars could run over it — according to one Islanders fan, cars that missed the jersey on their first pass were instructed to drive over it again. They burned his shirts and jerseys in effigy in large oil drums.

During warm-ups, they chanted and booed Tavares. Signs papered the glass, disparaging him. One Islanders fan threw his Tavares jersey at the six-time All-Star as he left the ice for the Leafs’ locker room.

Tavares was drafted first overall by the Islanders in 2009 and quickly became the face of the franchise. The next nine years were lean as far as team success — Tavares played in only 24 playoff games — but he scored 272 goals and had 349 assists in 669 games.china nike nfl jerseys cheap

After maintaining that he wanted to remain with the Islanders in the months leading up to unrestricted free agency, Tavares decided to hear the pitches of several teams at his agents’ offices. The Leafs had one that blew him away, and Tavares, an Ontario native, signed a seven-year, $77 million contract with his childhood team.

Devils beat odds to win lottery, chance at Hughes

8

The New Jersey Devils won the 2019 NHL draft lottery after entering Tuesday night’s event in Toronto with the third-best odds.

It’s the second lottery win in three years for the Devils. They won it in 2017 and selected center Nico Hischier.

“I said the No. 1 thing we needed was [more] talent, and this is a huge part of getting more talent. It’s a huge day for the Devils,” GM Ray Shero said after the draw.

The 15 teams that did not qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs were all eligible to win the lottery. The NHL uses three separate drawings to select the teams for the top three picks in the draft, in an effort to discourage tanking.cheap nfl jerseys china nike

The Devils had a 11.5 percent chance of winning the lottery. The New York Rangers, who had just a 7.5 percent chance, jumped up from No. 6 to snag the second overall pick. The Chicago Blackhawks made an even more dramatic move, going from No. 12 all the way to the third pick in the draft. They had just a 2.5 percent chance of winning the lottery. The Colorado Avalanche, via a pick acquired from the last-place Ottawa Senators in a 2017 trade involving center Matt Duchene, entered the lottery with the best odds at 18.5 percent. The Los Angeles Kings (13.5 percent), Devils (11.5 percent), Detroit Red Wings (9.5 percent) and Buffalo Sabres (8.5 percent) rounded out the top five teams in draft probabilities.8

This year’s lottery was a painful one for Ottawa fans to watch. The Senators finished the regular season with the NHL’s worst record but did not own their first-round pick, which was traded to Colorado in the Duchene trade. They had the option to give Colorado their first-rounder in the 2018 NHL draft, but instead opted to select center Brady Tkachuk with the fourth overall pick. That gave Colorado the Senators’ 2019 pick and the best lottery odds. To add insult to injury, the Senators traded Duchene to the Columbus Blue Jackets in February after 118 games in Ottawa.china nike nfl jerseys cheap

The prize of the 2019 NHL entry draft is Hughes, a special talent who skates at an elite level and can make plays at high speed.

The 17-year-old center’s footwork is unique among most players in that he skates deceptively well on top of having higher-end puck skills. Hughes also has elite vision, which combined with his shiftiness, allows him to exploit open ice and find teammates with ease. There are somewhat limited concerns about his size and physical strength, but they have done little to dissuade most that he belongs at No. 1.

Report: Quicken Loans Arena being renamed

10

A person familiar with the decision says Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena is being renamed Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

The announcement of the change cheap nfl nike jerseys from china will be made Tuesday at a news conference at the downtown home of the NBA’s Cavaliers, said the person who spoke Monday night to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team is not revealing the nature of the media gathering.10

The Cavs sent out an advisory about a “major announcement” and said owner Dan Gilbert and Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and general manager Koby Altman would be among those in attendance.nfl cheap jerseys nike

Best known as “The Q,” the 19,000-seat arena, which hosted the Republican National Convention in 2016, was previously known as Gund Arena before Gilbert bought the building and team from Gordon Gund in 2005.

The building is currently undergoing a major renovation. The Cavs play their season finale on Tuesday against Charlotte.

Re-signing DeMarcus Lawrence makes Cowboys a Super Bowl contender

10

They needed Lawrence because as they found out after releasing DeMarcus Ware after the 2014 season, “war daddies,” as Cowboys owner Jerry Jones affectionately calls pass-rushers, do not grow on trees. And so they did, agreeing to a five year, $105 million deal with $65 million guaranteed, according to a source.

The Cowboys traded up in the second round with an NFC East rival, the Washington Redskins, to take Lawrence with the 34th overall pick in 2014. The move did not pay immediate dividends — Lawrence did not have a regular-season sack as a rookie, but he led the team in sacks in 2015, struggled with a back injury that required two surgeries in 2016, and recorded a combined 25 sacks in 2017 and ’18.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

The Cowboys were not going to find Lawrence’s replacement in the draft, even if they had a first-round pick this year. Rookie pass-rushers almost always need time to develop and the Cowboys are not in a position to wait.10

They needed Lawrence because of the message it sent to the locker room. The Cowboys boast that their goal is to draft and develop players before signing them to lucrative contract extensions. The list is impressive: Terence Newman, Jason Witten, Bradie James, Tony Romo, Ware, Marion Barber, Jay Ratliff, Doug Free, Orlando Scandrick, Dez Bryant, Sean Lee, Tyron Smith, Tyrone Crawford, Travis Frederick, Terrance Williams and Zack Martin.

Not all of the deals worked out perfectly. Not every decision to let other players walk was correct either. The Cowboys do not want to play in the deep end of the free-agent pool. The risk is too great. They want to know what they are buying, and with a player’s track record they can make better assumptions.

It’s more than that. Lawrence had two surgeries in 2016. The first back surgery did not correct a disk issue. He could have shut it down that year but opted to keep playing even though it was obvious he was not the same player. He sat the final three regular-season games to be ready for the playoffs that year.nfl nike jerseys for cheap

What message would the Cowboys have sent to the rest of the locker room if they let Lawrence walk or play another year on the franchise tag. Especially after proving 2017 was not a fluke with a second straight Pro Bowl appearance? Some would have pointed to the fact he played hurt and the Cowboys turned their back when it came time to reward him.

Jay Gruden: Redskins must ‘win now’ — and top pick has to make impact

9

The Washington Redskins haven’t made the playoffs in three years, which means one thing: They need to win now. And though they need a quarterback, finding one in the first round of the NFL draft might not accomplish that desire.

That’s why other spots could be higher on their to-do list with the 15th pick in the draft, which is April 25-27 (ESPN and ESPN App) in Nashville, Tennessee.nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap

If the Redskins add a quarterback, coach Jay Gruden provided insight into what he’s expecting:9

“There is no developmental process here,” Gruden said. “This is not Triple-A baseball; we’re [not] trying to develop a pitcher here. We’re trying to win a game right now. If we draft a quarterback in the first, second, third or seventh rounds and he’s going to start Day 1, we expect great things from him.

“Players will expect great things from him. Ryan Kerrigan is not expecting us to come out and ‘let’s build for the future.’ We’ve got to win now. Josh Norman, same way. Landon Collins did not come here to be good in 2034. They came here to be good and compete to win a Super Bowl this year.”cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

At No. 15, there’s no guarantee a quarterback they like falls to them — let alone one ready to start. The Redskins do have Colt McCoy and Case Keenum, but they need a long-term answer at quarterback with Alex Smith’s future in doubt. And there’s a solid chance they end up trading for Arizona quarterback Josh Rosen.

With Gruden likely entering the season on the hot seat, he needs immediate help from the first-round pick.

“Every one of these coaches feel they have to win now,” Redskins president Bruce Allen said at the recent NFL owners meetings in Arizona.

Giants acquire outfielder Pillar from Blue Jays

10

The Toronto Blue Jays have traded center fielder Kevin Pillar to the San Francisco Giants.

Toronto acquired infielder Alen Hanson and right-handers Derek Law and Juan De Paula in exchange for Pillar, one of baseball’s top defensive center fielders.

It marks the second trade in the past week by the Blue Jays, who also dealt veteran first baseman Kendrys Morales to the Oakland Athletics last Wednesday.cheap nfl jerseys nike china

Tuesday’s trade could open regular playing time for Blue Jays outfielder Anthony Alford, one of Toronto’s top prospects. Alford was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.10

Pillar, 30, has spent his entire major league career with the Blue Jays, batting .260 in seven seasons. He is 1-for-16 in his first five games this season.cheap nfl nike jerseys free shipping

Pillar has 55 home runs and 231 RBIs in 695 games. He’s known for his highlight-reel catches in center and was Toronto’s longest-tenured player.

The right-handed-hitting Pillar figures to see regular playing time in San Francisco’s outfield. Left-handed Steven Duggar has started in center field in each of the Giants’ first five games this season.

Hanson is a career .238 hitter with 12 home runs and 51 RBIs in 243 games for Pittsburgh, the White Sox and San Francisco. Law is 9-3 with five saves and a 3.83 ERA in 109 games over three seasons with the Giants. De Paula struck out 55 batters in 52 ⅓ innings in Class-A last season.

The Giants designated outfielder Michael Reed for assignment to make room for Pillar on the roster.
