Despite the constant trade speculation swirling around over the past few months, Earl Thomas remains a member of the Seattle Seahawks. A big window for a potential deal passed during the draft, and based on Seattle general manager John Schneider’s recent comments, it doesn’t seem like the Seahawks are eager to make a trade happen themselves in the immediate future.
In an interview with Seattle’s Sports Radio 950 KRJ (per ESPN’s Brady Henderson), Schneider said that the team isn’t actively trying to move its All-Pro free safety.
Nope, not actively looking for that, Schneider responded. Nope.
While it may be true that the Seahawks themselves aren’t openly shopping Thomas around, that likely hasn’t stopped them from listening to offers for the star safety.
Miller was on NFL.com’s third page of their overall prospect rankings, and they weren’t alone with having the offensive lineman ranked so low.
He’s a big, physical player who shows some promise, but his development is still pretty raw, and he’s headed to a team with Tom Cable, who hasn’t shown much promise developing offensive line talent.
After Giancarlo Stanton belted a double to right-center field to lead off the ninth, Neil Walker drew a two-out walk with Stanton on on third base. Miguel Andujar notched the game-winning hit, singling to shallow right field off closer Cody Allen, scoring Stanton and setting off a wild celebration in of all places the outfield.
In was the Yankees’ second rally in as many innings.
In the eighth, they loaded the bases against Alexi Ogando making his first big-league appearance since 2016 before Aaron Judge drew a full count walk to force in Miguel Andujar and make it 6-5 Yankees.
The Yankees’ bullpen squandered a 5-0 lead through seven innings and a one-run advantage going into the ninth inning.
Aroldis Chapman earned his first blown save when Yan Gomes scored on the lefty’s second wild pitch of the inning to tie things at 6-all.
The fastball smacked off the plate umpire’s helmet and catcher Gary Sanchez, who didn’t have a chance at catching it, also didn’t a a shot at nabbing Gomes at home. The Yankees won for the 13th time in their last 14 games and improved to 22-10. They started the day a game behind the Red Sox and tied for the second-best record in the majors.
They also improved to 19-3 while leading after six innings and 17-3 after scoring first.
