Ings double seals Southampton victory over struggling Watford

Watford were dealt a major blow in their bid to avoid relegation as a Danny Ings double and James Ward-Prowse’s stunning late free kick condemned them to a 3-1 defeat at home to Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap

Saints started strongly and took a well-deserved lead in the 16th minute when Ings glided past the challenge of two Watford defenders before curling a low effort into the far corner.8

The striker added a second goal in the 70th minute after intercepting a wayward throw from goalkeeper Ben Foster before Jan Bednarek’s own goal handed the Hornets a lifeline.

But Ward-Prowse’s free kick in the 82nd minute sealed the victory for Southampton, who rose to 13th place with 40 points, while Watford remain in 16th with 28 points, one point ahead of third-bottom Bournemouth, who have a game in hand.cheap nfl jerseys from china nike

Solskjaer: Angel Gomes likely to leave Manchester United

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he is expecting midfielder Angel Gomes to leave the club.

The United boss had been hopeful Gomes would sign a new contract but with no update on the situation and the 19-year-old’s deal due to expire on Tuesday, he now looks set to leave Old Trafford.

“I’ve got no news, nothing, so it doesn’t look like [he will stay],” Solskjaer told a news conference on Monday.

“I’ve not heard from them last night or this morning. It seems like they haven’t managed to agree so the answer is probably short and yes [he will leave].“cheap nfl jerseys from china nike

United travel to Brighton on Tuesday looking to extend their unbeaten run to 15 games and put more pressure on the top four places.7

With seven games remaining, Solskjaer’s team are sixth in the table, five points behind fourth-place Chelsea.

“I think there are many teams in that battle for third and fourth — Leicester, Chelsea, us, Wolves are doing really well, ” Solskjaer said.

“Tottenham, Arsenal and Sheffield United want to put a run together and put a challenge in there. It’s exciting for fans

“The players are working really hard and want to do as well as they can.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap

“For me as a team we’re trying to implement our ideas. When you go into the next game knowing you’ve won the previous game it’s a good place to be in.”

Brighton are still in relegation trouble but have been in good form since the restart with a win over Arsenal and a draw at Leicester.

United have lost on both of their last two visits to the Amex Stadium and Solskjaer is expecting a tough game even without Brighton fans in the stadium.

“They’re a good footballing side, play football and make it hard for you,” he added.

“I’ve not been down there myself and fans, of course they matter and have an impact on games and football.

“We have to deal with the situation as it is and as an away team, sometimes it helps you but then again when you’re at the bottom pressure of fans can get to you and give an extra edge.”

Korea Baseball Organization prepping for fans in stands as soon as Friday

The Korea Baseball Organization is trading in its cardboard cutout fans for real ones.

South Korea announced Sunday it will begin reopening stadiums to spectators this week. A KBO official said the league is working to welcome fans back as soon as Friday.

“We haven’t yet established specific guidelines, and we have to monitor the situation with the virus, but we expect to have fans back in the stands by Friday at the earliest,” the league’s secretary general Ryu Dae-hwan told the Yonhap News Agency on Sunday. “We’ll make the health and safety of our fans the No. 1 priority.”7

The KBO aims to open stadiums at 30% capacity before working its way up to 50% in the coming weeks, according to the news agency.

The league had been playing in empty stadiums since the season began on May 5.new nike nfl jerseys cheap

The highest level of baseball in South Korea, the KBO was one of the first sports to return during the coronavirus pandemic. With games airing on ESPN throughout the summer, the league has become popular among baseball fans awaiting MLB’s return.

Dak Prescott plans to sign franchise tag by Monday, source says

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott plans to sign his $31.4 million exclusive franchise tender by Monday, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The two sides still have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal. The Cowboys had placed the franchise tag on Prescott on March 18.

By signing his franchise tender, Prescott will be contractually obligated to report to training camp on time, whether or not he and the Cowboys can figure out a long-term deal.

Prescott’s decision to sign the franchise tender is not an indication that a long-term agreement is close, league sources told ESPN’s Ed Werder.cheap nfl jerseys nike china

The fact that Prescott will be one of the highest-paid players in the NFL — and the potential his franchise tag increases by a mandatory 20% next season to $37.7 million with a flat or lower cap in 2021 — is incentive for Dallas to secure a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline.8

Said one source of the pressure on the Cowboys: “Their problem is the second year, because this salary cap is going to crash unless there’s an intermediate deal. They would have to gut their team to keep him then. So there’s even more incentive for the Cowboys to do a long-term deal with Dak because of the coronavirus and where the cap might be next year.”

This offseason, the Cowboys made a long-term offer to Prescott that would put him among the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL, ESPN’s Todd Archer previously reported. Seattle’s Russell Wilson is the highest paid at $35 million per season, followed by Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger at $34 million.

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones and executive vice president Stephen Jones have repeatedly expressed their belief that Prescott is the team’s quarterback of the future and capable of leading the franchise back to a Super Bowl. Prescott, who turns 27 on July 29, has said on multiple occasions that he never wanted to leave the Cowboys.nfl cheap nike jerseys

The Cowboys had hoped to sign Prescott to an extension last offseason that would have guaranteed him nine figures, but the quarterback bet on himself, willing to play for $2.02 million in 2019.

Prescott completed 388 of 596 passes for 4,902 yards and 30 touchdown passes last season. Despite career highs in yardage and touchdowns, Prescott had his worst record as a starter (8-8) as the Cowboys missed the playoffs. His growth as a passer, however, was obvious as the Cowboys had two 1,000-yard receivers in Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup.

The Cowboys took Prescott with their second pick of the fourth round in the 2016 draft — a compensatory pick at No. 135 overall. When Tony Romo went down in the 2016 preseason with a back injury, the Cowboys were forced to turn to Prescott, and he has started each of Dallas’ 64 games since.

Patriots’ Devin and Jason McCourty cautious of NFL’s return

New England Patriots defensive backs Devin and Jason McCourty described the possibility of returning to work as nerve-wracking and “scary” due to the coronavirus pandemic.cheap wholesale nike nfl jerseys

“I think everybody’s nervous, because the norm is that we just go to work — we put in a lot of work, we bond together, we lift, we’re in close quarters. It feels like that’s all being taken away from us, so I don’t know how to react. I don’t know what’s it’s going to be,” Devin McCourty said Sunday night on the “Double Coverage” podcast.

“I love how a lot of players’ attention has been on what’s going on outside of football, and I think we’ll continue to do that. But figuring out football, to me, seems to be the hardest thing right now. We hope, but I don’t know if we’ll figure it out, honestly.”

“For me, there would be no coming together to do any type of practice with teammates, because I just think we can’t dismiss with corona and everything going on,” Jason said on the podcast he shares with Devin. “I’ve been out here in Nashville, and I actually go run at the high school where I think a lot of the 49ers players were doing their team-practice ordeal. They just had a player or two test positive, [according to a NFL Network report].

“It’s kind of scary because something like that, I think it was probably just offense, so they probably had maybe 10 guys out there. When you think about the future, if it’s hard for 10 guys just to get together to do little passing drills or anything of that nature, to think about somewhere between 53 and 90 guys in a training camp, it’s going to be insane. So I don’t know how that’s going to turn out.”

One possibility would be to emulate plans by the NBA and MLS for a “bubble” format. In a CNN interview last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that is what the NFL would need to do to give itself the best chance to have a season.

Both McCourtys expressed doubt on how that would work.7

“I think it’s very different for football. You think about training camp, there’s 90 guys on the team. Not only are there 90 guys, but there’s a coaching staff usually made up of maybe 15 to 20 … and there are so many other football-essential personnel that are in the building. You’re talking about 32 teams with over 100 members that you have to house; I don’t know if it’s really fathomable for the NFL to be able to go in a bubble,” Jason said.

“Beyond that, I don’t really know — me, personally, I don’t want to ever say never, but I can’t anticipate me being away from the family for that long throughout the entirety of the season. That would be insane. It would feel like forever.”cheap nfl jerseys nike china

Added Devin: “I just can’t see me stepping away from my family for that amount of time. When you sign up for different jobs, you kind of discuss it as a family, the hardship of that. For us as players, we never had to think about that. We have training camp kind of in a month and a half, so we haven’t heard until now. The days start counting down. You might be telling your wife with a week’s notice that you’re gone for six months. To me, that would be very tough. If that is on the table, I think that needs to be discussed sooner than later for guys to be able to make that decision.”

At one point in the podcast, Jason was asked the biggest obstacle the Patriots face in 2020, and he said any specific X’s and O’s are overshadowed by the bigger picture.

“[Similar] to every other team in the league, is figuring out how to get into the building. I know that’s kind of the cliché answer right now, but everything that’s gone on with COVID, I think it’s hard at this point to even think about the individual team obstacles that you’re going to have go through because there’s so much going on out of our control right now,” Jason said.

Christian Pulisic goal for Chelsea ‘inspiration’ in fightback win – Frank Lampard

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard praised Christian Pulisic, as the American forward scored an equaliser five minutes after coming off the bench to help his team earn a 2-1 comeback win at Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china

Pulisic levelled on the hour after Kortney Hause had given Villa a 43rd minute lead, and Frenchman Olivier Giroud netted the winner two minutes later, tightening Chelsea’s grip on fourth place.

Lampard also singled out midfielder Ross Barkley and right-back Cesar Azpilicueta, who set up both Chelsea goals — one with a superb cross from his flank, and the other with a sublime pass to Giroud from the opposite side.7

“The individuals who make the difference should always take all the credit, so with Christian and Ross Barkley, who came on at the same time, they’re both players who have trained well and had cases to start this game,” said Lampard.

“We knew that fitness would play a part, so the idea of bringing on Christian and Ross early in the second half was always something that was in my mind.

“The way it was going, we needed a bit of inspiration, and Christian gave it with his goal. I thought Ross did really well, too. I keep saying to the players how important subs could be in this period, and they showed that.”nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap

“I thought Azpi was really good in the game. Obviously, he delivers the ball for Christian’s goal and got really high up in areas.”

The result left Chelsea on course for a Champions League berth next season, five points ahead of fifth-placed Manchester United and sixth-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Lampard praising his team’s character.

“We showed great character and quality in the second half to win the game, so I’m pleased. I thought we moved the ball pretty well for most of the game and dominated possession clearly.”

‘I don’t feel cheated one bit’: Pitchers who gave up home runs to both McGwire and Sosa in ’98 tell their tales

Rick Reed, a righty for the New York Mets, allowed McGwire’s 13th and 51st homers in 1998. “He was just big. I was like, ‘My god, can we just get this at-bat over with?'” Reed said. “Every time he came up, my thinking was, ‘Please, God, just don’t let him hit the ball back up the middle. Let him hit it anywhere he wants to but not back up the middle.’ When I was in the minor leagues, Randy Velarde hit a ball back up the middle, and I kid you not, that hit the button on the top of my hat. If McGwire had hit one back up the middle, I could only imagine what it would’ve looked like — or sounded like. Because I wouldn’t have seen it.”

Jim Parque was a rookie for the Chicago White Sox in 1998, and the first two home runs he allowed in his big league career were to Sosa on June 5, and McGwire on June 10. He laughed with empathy when he heard how Reed had feared a ball being hit up the middle by McGwire. “Oh, yeah. You’ve got a gorilla up there in McGwire. Those two guys, they were just epic — muscle tone, power guys. The way their bats cut the plane, and how it got through the plane, it almost looked like every pitch was going to come back through the middle. … With Sosa and McGwire, it was basically like they had a tee there and the barrel was there the whole time. As a pitcher, you’re thinking, ‘How the hell do I pitch around this?’ That’s what we do as pitchers — pitch around the barrel.”cheap nfl nike jerseys china

Jason Bere allowed McGwire’s 29th home run that season while with the White Sox and Sosa’s 56th after being released and signed by the Cincinnati Reds. “It was almost like the whole game was about their at-bats,” he said.8

“I didn’t appreciate back then what those guys were able to do. Those guys had it all,” he said. “They might not have defined it in [modern] terminology, but they knew back then exactly what they were trying to accomplish. Plate coverage — get the barrel in the zone as quickly as you can and keep it there as long as you can. They had really big flat spots in their swings, rather than coming down and trying to create backspin. They worked on meeting the ball squarely — maybe not matching pitch plane, but the flatter the barrel is through the zone, the more opportunity you will meet the pitch plane. They were masters at it, and that’s why they did so well.”

Andy Benes, who played for the Arizona Diamondbacks in 1998 and surrendered McGwire’s 31st and Sosa’s 43rd, said of McGwire: “I don’t think people realize that he was a really good hitter. … He didn’t swing at a lot of bad pitches, and when you made a mistake, he had a pretty good opportunity to put the barrel on it. So he wasn’t just purely a power hitter. I remember him as being a better low-ball guy — he’d drop the barrel on the ball, and that’s not as common for right-handed hitters.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

“He would never take practice swings when he was in the on-deck circle. He would visualize, and he knew what every pitcher could do. He took good, quality at-bats. He was a patient hitter, but when he got a pitch to swing at, he cut it loose.”

Reed on McGwire: “He was just so strong. You could make him look like a fool with an off-speed pitch, so that he was out on his front foot, and he’d still hit the ball 450 feet. You just hoped he didn’t come up to the plate with the bases loaded, or a couple of guys on.”

Benes on Sosa: “He could really cover the plate. He could hit a lot of balls the opposite way. Tremendous power, bat speed. He was more of an up hitter. In those years, in the mid-to-late ’90s, he was a really hard out. … When he was dialed in, he was one of the best hitters in the game because he could take the ball the other way. … Mike Piazza was like that. … You had to work on keeping the ball down and make [Sosa] aware you might come inside.”

Reed: “Those guys just had a magical year that we will never see again. We may see one guy — Pete Alonso, he may hit like 2,000 home runs — but I don’t think we’ll see multiple guys hitting 60, 70 home runs. No way. I don’t think so.”

Ja Morant asks judge to have Confederate monument removed from Murray

Former Murray State star Ja Morant is asking a Kentucky judge to remove a Confederate monument in downtown Murray.

Morant, who was drafted with the second pick in the 2019 NBA draft by the Memphis Grizzlies, led Murray State to a conference championship in 2019.nike nfl jerseys cheap china

“Murray felt like a second home from the minute I stepped on campus and became a part of the Murray state community,” Morant said in a letter to the Calloway County judge dated Thursday.8

“As a young Black man, I cannot stress enough how disturbing and oppressive it is to know the city still honors a Confederate war general defending white supremacy and hatred.”

The monument, which features a statue of Robert E. Lee, was erected in 1917 to honor Confederate soldiers from Calloway County. It sits outside the Calloway County Courthouse.

A number of Confederate statues and monuments have been removed around the country in the wake of protests following the death of George Floyd last month.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

“Given recent events and the Black Lives Matter movement, it’s necessary to act now,” Morant wrote. “We can’t change the culture of racism unless we change the celebration of racism.”

Sources: Browns working on possible megadeal with Myles Garrett

The Cleveland Browns and defensive end Myles Garrett have engaged in contract discussions, according to sources, setting the stage for a potential mega-extension for the 2017 No. 1 overall pick.

Garrett has two years left on his rookie contract after the Browns picked up his fifth-year option. He could follow Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey, a fellow member of the 2017 draft class who saw his contract extended after three NFL seasons.

The Browns have several core players they might need to pay in coming years — including cornerback Denzel Ward, quarterback Baker Mayfield and running back Nick Chubb — so they can get ahead of a pricey pass-rush market now by extending Garrett.

After 10 sacks in as many games last year, Garrett is widely viewed as one of the game’s most feared pass-rushers.cheap nfl nike jerseys china

But in 2019, Garrett served a six-game suspension for hitting Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph with his own helmet during an end-of-game skirmish on Nov. 15. Garrett apologized for the hit, calling it a “terrible mistake” that was “selfish and unacceptable.”7

The NFL reinstated Garrett in February, and Garrett alleged in an interview with ESPN’s Mina Kimes that Rudolph had called him a racial slur. Rudolph has vehemently denied that claim, and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin aggressively defended Rudolph in an interview with ESPN’s First Take, saying he was “hacked off” by Garrett’s comments that neither team corroborated after the fight.

“We do see Myles as a long-term member and pillar in our organization,” general manager Andrew Berry told 105.7 the Fan Baltimore last month. “Great player, great person. Obviously, he did make a mistake last year that he’s learned from. But our confidence in and faith in Myles has not wavered and we’re looking to seeing what he does this year and certainly for years to come.”

Chicago’s Khalil Mack tops all pass-rushers with an average of $23.5 million per year, followed by Dallas’ DeMarcus Lawrence ($21 million) and Kansas City’s Frank Clark ($20.8 million).cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

Garrett’s agent is Bus Cook, who also represents free-agent pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney, a player Cleveland attempted to sign this offseason. Opposite Garrett is veteran Olivier Vernon, who’s due $15.25 million in base salary this season.

Bucs CB Carlton Davis recounts guns-drawn, ‘traumatizing’ traffic stop while teenager

In the wake of ongoing conversations surrounding racism and police brutality, Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting cornerback Carlton Davis gave an account Wednesday of an encounter with law enforcement that he says, to this day, has made him fearful of police.

When Davis, who is African American, was 14 or 15 years old attending Miami Norland Senior High School, he, his brother and a few friends were pulled over by police officers and had guns drawn on them.

Davis said on Instagram that as the car was pulled over “we were bum-rushed with guns in our faces. It was just like guns in our faces and we had done nothing wrong. It was the fact that they had seen kids in the car and said that the car looked like a car that was involved in a crime.”

“What would have happened if we felt startled and made a sudden movement?” Davis said in the post. “The trigger could have been pulled, you know what I mean? It would have been another case of the police officer just saying, ‘I was fearing for my life’ because you moved.”nike nfl jerseys for cheap

A study in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences found that black men and black youth face a 1 in 1,000 chance of being killed during an encounter with law enforcement during their lifetimes. Those odds are 1 in 2,000 for men in general, according to the study.7

Davis’ mother is a correctional officer and had spent years instructing Davis on what to do should he encounter law enforcement, including not reaching for his phone, not making any sudden movements and not speaking out of turn. He carefully followed all of her instructions, but to this day he’s still haunted by the experience.

“It was very traumatizing. It was so unexpected,” Davis said after the post went live. “To kind of live on eggshells and have to be very cautious around your own community is not an ideal way to live. That definitely does something to your psyche as far as your everyday living and how you go about making your choices as far as going to the store or driving and when the police pops up, what are you doing and how are you driving? To have guns pointed at us at such an early age, it just kind of introduced us to the world a lot quicker than we wanted to.”cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

The Stanford Open Policing Project, which analyzed 93 million traffic stops from 2001 to 2017, found that black drivers were 20% more likely to be pulled over by police than white drivers. The study also found that police were more likely to find drugs, guns or contraband in stops of white drivers, but black drivers were still searched 1.5 to two times as often.

“When you’re being stopped, the first thing a cop sees is a black man and once they see that, anything they do is to intimidate you. For what reasons? I don’t know. I don’t know what they experienced or what happened, but I’ve been stopped by so many cops. And it honestly started when I started driving,” Davis said.

“I can’t say I’ve never ran into a good cop, but I can say that every time I got stopped, for one made-up traffic reason or another, I felt them trying to intimidate me through orders, through tone of voice. It was constant threats of, ‘You could go to jail for this,’ and it’s like, ‘Uh, why are you mentioning taking me to jail if I’ve done nothing wrong?'”
