w Yorks 31-13 loss at Pit

  • 29 May
    Yoenis Cespedes, by near unanimous consensus, is the best free agent available this offseason. That probably wouldnt be the case most seasons, but hes coming off back-to-back 30-homer seasons, he thrived while playing in a big market with the New York Mets, and he is a plus defender in left field. After inconsistent results at the plate his first few seasons in the league, he has matured into a middle-of-the-order threat. The past two seasons, he ranks eighth among major league outfielders in WAR.The negatives: He just turned 31, and for a player who relies so much on his physicality, there are concerns about how he might age if his body doesnt hold up, aside from the general risk of signing a player his age to a multiyear deal. Some analysts have suggested that teams are concerned hell lose focus if he signs a long-term contract, which could be one reason he didnt get the lucrative deal he sought last offseason and returned to the Mets on what turned out to be a one-year contract. He will probably be limited to left field for the most part, as he doesnt like right field and his defensive metrics in center with the Mets were below average.That said, with few other star options on the market, some team will spend a pile of cash on Cespedes, and projections are in the area of a five-year, $120 million price tag. That dollar amount limits the market, but here are five places Cespedes could land: Marble Water Bottle Cheap . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others. Swell Water Bottle Wood .

NEW YORK -- David Harris impressive streak appears to be coming to an end.The New York Jets linebacker was listed Saturday as doubtful to play against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday night because of a hamstring injury, putting his streak of 121 consecutive games played in jeopardy.Harris did not practice all week after getting hurt in New Yorks 31-13 loss at Pittsburgh last Sunday. He hasnt missed a game since the 2008 season, his second in the NFL, when he had to sit out five games with a groin injury.It means a lot to me, Harris said Friday of his reputation for being durable. I just try to be there for my teammates. I dont like missing time with these guys.Harris streak is the seventh-longest among active players, and is tops for NFL linebackers. The only other defensive player with a longer active streak is Dallas cornerback Brandon Carr, who has appeared in 133 games in a row.Giants quarterback Eli Manning leads all active pplayers with 188 consecutive games played.ddddddddddddCoach Todd Bowles said earlier in the week that Erin Henderson, Bruce Carter and first-rounder Darron Lee could all be used in various packages at inside linebacker if Harris cant play. Harris said he would be making the trip with the team to Arizona, meaning he could still be a game-time decision.Cornerback Darrelle Revis (hamstring), center Nick Mangold (knee) and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) were all limited Saturday and listed as questionable. Revis was optimistic Friday about playing, saying his hamstring was not grabbing when he ran at full speed.Left tackle Ryan Clady (shoulder) and tight end Braedon Bowman (knee) were full participants after being limited on Friday.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
