Friday notes and links: Robertson, Miller, Billings, prospects

A few notes and links as we wrap up this week before Thanksgiving (pretty amazing that it’s this late in the year already, isn’t it?): • Andrew Marchand talked to a handful of executives and scouts about the free agent market for former Yankees closer Dave Robertson. The general consensus seems to be that Robertson […] The post Friday notes and links: Robertson, Miller, Billings, prospects appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Execs: D-Rob will get his 'Papelbon money'

The question is: Will David Robertson receive "Papelbon" money from the Yankees? The expectation is that Robertson's free-agent contract will at least be in the neighborhood of Jonathan Papelbon's four-year, $50 million contract, the highest ever for a closer. Four MLB officials, surveyed by ESPN...

Injury Update: Foster Misses Practice, Unlikely to Play Against Bengals

The Texans may be looking for Alfred Blue to shoulder the load again this Sunday, as Arian Foster missed Friday's practice. Alfred Blue delivered a strong performance last week in Cleveland with 156 yards on a franchise record 36 carries.  Jonathan Grimes backed up Blue with 13 carries for 54 yards rushing.  Both of these players may need to tote the rock again if Arian Foster is unable to suit-up for the game. Sports Radio 610 is reporting: When asked if there was anything new to report on Foster’s status, O’Brien simply replied, "No." When Foster was asked directly if he would be...

The Lions Try to Describe Rob Gronkowski; So We Make Everyone Else Describe Him, Too

The Lions Try to Describe Rob Gronkowski; So We Make Everyone Else Describe Him, Too

The Lions are tasked with stopping Rob Gronkowski. Here's what they think they're up against. The Lions know they have their hands full with Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. "He's Gronk," said Lions slot receiver Jeremy Ross, to Detroit News. "The name fits him. He's just this guy who's this meathead dude who goes in and catches the ball and just makes plays. "He's like, 'I'm Gronk. I'm going to get in there, I'm going to throw people off me, I'm going to score and do whatever I can to make plays. And that's what he does." Personally, I think that's a pretty good description of Gronk,...

Eagles-Titans week has been boring and slow

Eagles-Titans week has been boring and slow

Is it Sunday yet? The build-up to this week's game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans has been really boring and slow. I can't think of a less anticipated match-up in recent history. Perhaps worst of all, you're now finding yourself reading a boring article about how boring this week has been. Yikes. But seriously, there just aren't a lot of interesting angles to this one. Any hype and/or optimism surrounding the Eagles was crushed when the team was obliterated by the Green Bay Packers last week. It was just a bad loss that really sucked the energy out of this season. To...
