MLB playoffs 2019: Nationals finally advance in October, and that’s all that matters

first_imgLet’s start with the only correct answer to the most-asked, most-irrelevant question on Tuesday night: Who friggin’ cares? The Nationals, as you surely were reminded in every single preview of the NL wild card contest, had never won a postseason series since the franchise moved from Montreal (RIP Expos) to Washington, D.C., after the 2004 season. They beat the Brewers in dramatic fashion Tuesday night, and almost immediately the question was asked, “Yeah, but does that really count as winning a playoff series? It’s one game. One game isn’t a series.” Hader walked MVP candidate Anthony Rendon to face the lefty Soto, the club’s 20-year-old clean-up hitter. And Soto’s roped single to right field — where Christian Yelich patrolled before breaking his kneecap and ending his season — skipped past Trent Grisham, clearing the bases. Daniel Hudson shut the door in the ninth inning, sealing the victory. And it doesn’t matter whether you think it’s a “series win” or not.What matters is the Nationals finally advanced in October, and the players and fans celebrated that advancement appropriately. Give me a break. MORE: Nats manager Dave Martinez accidentally shaves playoff beardIt’s October, and winning matters. Surviving matters. Advancing matters, whether it’s a small step or a giant leap. For some franchises and fan bases, getting past the wild card contest wouldn’t be a big deal, and that’s fine. But just because your favorite team has punched a few October tickets, don’t tell me it’s a play-in game. Don’t tell me it’s not the “real” postseason.It’s as much a playoff game as Game 7 of the World Series. In fact, you’ll remember Game 7 of the 2014 World Series included two wild card-winning teams, the Giants and the Royals. The Nationals advanced in October for the first time in D.C., and that matters. You saw the raw emotion on the faces of the players. You saw the beer being tossed about in the stands, as TBS cameras spanned the crowd. You saw Juan Soto celebrating on the base paths even as he was being tagged out in a rundown, because he knew the go-ahead run had already crossed home plate in the eighth inning. Winning in October matters because losing in October, well, sucks, and Nationals fans had experienced plenty of heartbreaking moments in Halloween’s favorite month. You saw the looks on the faces of the fans in the first inning, right after Yasmani Grandal stunned the crowd with a two-run homer off Max Scherzer. Nats fans are, yeah, stunned pic.twitter.com/kplgPNhkIB— Ryan Fagan (@ryanfagan) October 2, 2019It was an all-too-familiar feeling. The Nationals had played three winner-take-all playoff contests at home over the past seven years, and they’d lost all three. And they didn’t just lose in boring ways, they lost in very painful ways. — In 2012, the Nationals had a 7-5 lead into the top of the ninth, at home, in Game 5 of the NLDS. But the Cardinals sent eight men to the plate in that half-inning and four of them scored — the final two on an RBI single by Pete Kozma (.569 career MLB OPS), of all people.— In 2016, the Nationals lost Game 5 in the best-of-five NLDS against the Dodgers. The Nationals grabbed a 2-1 lead in the series and outscored the Dodgers 24-19, but LA won three one-run decisions and advanced. The Dodgers scored four times in the seventh inning of Game 5 and won 4-3. — In 2017, Game 5 of the NLDS against the Cubs was mildly insane: The Nationals led 4-1 after two innings. The Cubs led 8-4 through the top of the sixth. The Nationals scored two in the sixth, one in the seventh and one in the eighth, but the lone run the Cubs scored in the seventh proved enough in a 9-8 victory. In 2019, things finally broke the Nationals’ way, starting with Ryan Zimmermann — a franchise icon who could have possibly played his final game for the team — breaking his bat on a blooped eighth-inning single off Josh Hader. That put two runners on base with two outs.last_img read more

Wellington Football Preview: The Crusader program has some continuity, but will it translate to victories?

first_img Outside linebackers: Interior: Horn and Troutman are likely to start against Goddard.“There will be a lot of people being rotated in and out of that spot,” Ryan said. 11Andrew Pelkey215′ 11″160 11Jace Bruns116′ 1″165 10Jared Shields166′ 0″150 2013 AV-CTL DIV opponents: Augusta, Wichita Collegiate, Circle, Andale, Clearwater. 11Jaden Hines375′ 7″185 10Skyler Struble885′ 11″155 9Chevy Nuss225’8120 11Alejandro Vargas645′ 11″180 OFFENSE: Trevor NanceNance returns as an honorable mention all-league quarterback. He started as a sophomore in week #5 against Circle which was Wellington’s first win of the year.“I expect him at the end of the season to be one of our top quarterbacks in the Wichita area,” Ryan said. “He is getting better all the time.”Nance and Ryan attended a quarterback camp in Oklahoma last summer, working on his mechanics.“There are some things that Trevor is going to struggle with,” Ryan said. “But with the camp he attended last summer, he will have something to refer back on.” 10Bryce Oldridge405′ 8″130 10Ethan Tunnell635′ 10″150 Guard: Taylan Lamkin (5-10, 195, sr.) and Skyler Brand (5-11, 210, jr.) will be the starters with Jason Norris (6-1, 260, so.) coming in regularly off the bench. “These guys have been real solid guys in practice,” Ryan said. “I’ve been impressed.” Defensive line: Norris and Lamkin could be starting on both sides.“I think you could pencil one of those two as being our only two-way starter at the moment,” Ryan said. 10Chandler Hain505′ 9″175 10Sage Ferguson35′ 5″125 9Matthew Mason815’7115 Tackle: Tyson Hodson (5-11, 285, sr.) is a returning starter on the left side. Trey Coulter (6-1, 275, jr.) and Nick Hyde, (6-0, 220, so.) will rotate on the right side. 10Josh Amos616′ 1″240 12Chance Hain195′ 10″170 11Joey Haydon235′ 10″165 12Mitchell Lowe685″ 11″245 11Lane Beard45′ 6″145 9Seth Smith485’8160 9Lane Morgan846’0160 10Remington Gilkey315′ 10″140 DEFENSE:Interior defensive line: Dalton Holt (5-8, 225, sr.) and Adam Condit (6-0, 195, jr.) will be manning the interior line. This is the first time Holt has been back since his sophomore year after suffering a back injury his junior year. Ryan’s view of the strength of the team: Depth up front.“We have looked pretty decent in practice,” Ryan said. “I think it will really help that we have potential starters practicing against one another.” Ryan’s view of the weakness of the team: Lack of depth and team speed. Wellington’s offense: Ryan said he will continue to run the flex bone offense as it did in 2012. But could see some variations coming out of the offense.“I still believe in the philosophy of running to set up the pass,” Ryan said. “But we most certainly will be throwing with Nance behind center.” Running backs: Austin Dunn (6-0, 200, jr.) will be the fullback. Connor Phelps (6-0, 180, so.) and Andrew Horn (5-7, 150, sr.) will probably start on the wings.Look for Jaden Hines (5-7, 185, jr.) to rotate in and out of the lineup.“We will be moving people around trying to get the right combination,” Ryan said. “Four or five people could be in the running mix.” Defense - Taylon Lamkin 5’10 195 Sr. DEAdam Condit 5’11 210 Jr. DTColin Reichenberger 6’0 160 Jr. DB 11Trey Coulter776′ 1″275 WHS Record in 2012: 2-7.

Ryan is a former head coach at Wichita Trinity. He is a Circle High School graduate. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — For the first time in four years, the Wellington football team has the same coaching staff, the same offense, and a solid group of returning starters. These were things taken for granted on the Crusader gridiron in the Y2K years.Will that be enough to spark a Wellington football turnaround? Who knows? But continuity sure doesn’t hurt.Think about this for a second. Wellington has not had a winning season since 2009 and hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2010. The team has won seven games in three years. That would seem unfathomable to the Crusader football fan of even five years ago.But the signs are there that things are looking up. For one thing, Wellington is solid at quarterback. Trevor Nance, a 6-5, 190 pound, junior, will be starting behind the center after starting for five games in 2012.There is also a solid line. In fact, second year head coach Tyler Ryan said he has enough depth there that he can platoon and have just one player starting both offensively and defensively.The competition also doesn’t look as rock solid as a year ago. Throw out teams like Andale and Wichita Collegiate and Wellington matches up well with the others. The prognosticators picked the Crusaders to finish either third or fourth in the league. More importantly, their district of Mulvane, Clearwater and Winfield is not impossibly tough.Wellington, though, has some significant question marks. The skill positions are lacking in depth.“We are either have great depth in skill positions and thin on the line, or vice versa,” Ryan said. “We can’t seem to get them both at the same time.”Last year, Wellington had an abundance of speed – not so much this year. And actual game time experience is always a question mark as the season approaches.“We just do not know what will happen when they turn on the lights on Friday night,” Ryan said. “A player can look good in practice, but then forget everything he knows when the game starts. There are a lot of questions out there that is still unanswered.”Wellington will know soon enough when it travels to Goddard to open the 2013 campaign, just eight days (or nights) away.••••• 10Kaleb Hunt806’2175 10Connor Phelps56′ 0″180 9Levi Preston446’0190 2.

Hopefully, the 2013 season won’t start out like 2012 in which Goddard scored on a long pass on the first play of year. Goddard would go on and finish 4-6, bowing out in the first round of Class 5A to Salina South. With 12 returning starters, including eight on defense, the Dukes have their work cut out for them.•Concordia, home, Sept. 13. Wellington’s trip to Concordia was a beat down as the Panthers amassed 417 yards against the Crusaders in a 51-20 win. The prospects for a more competitive game in Wellington this year is a strong possibility. Concordia lost a lot of seniors. Wellington is deeper up front.•Augusta, away, Sept. 20. Wellington lost its homecoming game to a team that hadn’t won in 11 games. It was the low point of the season for the Dukes. Wellington needs to win here and will serve as a benchmark of the progress of the Ryan regime.•Collegiate, home, Sept. 27. Although Wellington lost in Collegiate in 2012, there was a spark in the Crusaders not seen before that season. Wellington just couldn’t keep hold of the football, turning the ball over five times in the game. Collegiate comes to Wellington. The Spartans will be heavily favored. Recruiting was good this spring.•Circle, home, Oct. 4. The Thunderbirds have been the one program Wellington has seen success winning the past two seasons. This will be a great opportunity to see the Dukes get another win.•Andale, away, Oct. 11. Whatever momentum the Dukes had the week before, came to a crashing halt against Andale. The Indians are ranked second in the Wichita Eagle Class 4A poll behind Holton. Andale has it going on.•Clearwater, away, Oct 18. The Wellington coaches won’t say it, so we will. This is the key game of the season. Wellington opens district play against Clearwater. A win here gives Wellington some momentum for the final two games. Wellington’s victory over Clearwater in 2012 was the highlight game of the season.•Mulvane, home, Oct. 25. Wellington hasn’t seen much success against Mulvane lately. Maybe this year. Mulvane lost 18 seniors from a team that reached the Class 4A semifinals. Trouble with that theory is, Mulvane has a tradition of winning at the moment. Don’t expect the program to fall off the precipice.•Winfield, away, Oct. 31. Wellington has underachieved badly against Winfield the past two seasons for whatever reason. If things go right, Wellington could be vying for a playoff berth. A win here would be huge for the program. 12Alex Langford416′ 0″140 12Andrew Horn15′ 7″150 12Gage Tunnell75′ 11″150 Colin ReichenbergerWide receivers: Colin Reichenberger (6-0, 160, jr.) gives the Crusaders breaking speed as a wideout. But Ryan said outside him, Wellington is struggling to find other starters at that position.“We’ll go with a committee approach until we find someone who will break out as an established starter,” Ryan said. Kick returners: Phelps and Reichenberger could start.“We have been working on special teams this week,” Ryan said. “It’s a position we will continue to evaluate. We don’t have that one burner.” The roster… Safety: Phelps and Jared Shields (6-0, 150, so.) have the nod at starters at that position. 12Dalton Holt555′ 8″225 Punter: Nance, who was an all-league punter, will return as a starter. 12Tyson Hodson725′ 11″285 12Taylan Lamkin735′ 10″195 11Skylar Brand715′ 11″210last_img read more

Ole Miss pisses away the Egg Bowl to Mississippi State

first_imgMORE: Picks for Rivalry Week games”Just disappointed,” Ole Miss coach Matt Luke told reporters after the game (per Jackson, Miss., TV station WJTV). “It’s not who we are. We’ve been a disciplined team all year and (I’m) just disappointed that it happened. . . . Elijah’s a good kid. He got caught up in the moment.”Mississippi State gets the win, Moore gets all the online abuse he deserves and Ole Miss, which isn’t bowl-eligible after a 4-8 season, gets to live with the stink of this for a whole year. The Egg Bowl rivalry game between Ole Miss and Mississippi State is one of the most hate-filled in the nation. It leads players to taunt their opponents . . . like how Ole Miss player Elijah Moore did Thursday.Bad Rebel. Bad. Ole Miss had drawn to a point behind the Bulldogs in the closing seconds of regulation on Moore’s receiving touchown, but Moore decided that wasn’t good enough. He tried to celebrate by making like a dog and doing the old pee taunt — right in front of an official.Out came the flag, back went the kicking team 15 yards for the extra-point try (a 2-point attempt for the win was no longer a good option) and, well, let’s just say: College kickers, man.OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!! ELIJAH MOORE’S PENALTY JUST COST OLE MISS!!!!!!!!!!!! THE GAME TYING EXTRA POINT IS NO GOOD!!!!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/wwTd5OJzG5— I’M SEEING GHOSTS (@FTBeard11) November 29, 2019The Rebels lost by (No.)1.last_img read more

Jason Garrett still safe, Jerry Jones says, after Cowboys fall to .500

first_imgJason Garrett will remain coach of the Cowboys for at least another week despite a home loss to the Bills on Thanksgiving.Team owner and general manager Jerry Jones told reporters following the 26-15 defeat that he will not make a coaching change even though his team is now 6-6 and in danger of being overtaken by the Eagles in the NFC East. Some Cowboys player is screaming in the locker room right now. It lasted for at least a minute pic.twitter.com/mNX60YEC7y— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) November 29, 2019The Cowboys will take on another 6-6 squad, the Bears, next Thursday at Soldier Field in Chicago. Jones expressed optimism that the players and coaches can eliminate the team’s mistakes over the final four weeks of the regular season.”Do you believe in redemption?” Jones asked a reporter, who replied in the affimative (video per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram). “I am a redemption man, too, so I think that you can change, to some degree, who you are.”Material from Omnisport was used in this report. MORE: Updated NFL playoff pictureJones believes Garrett is still the right coach to get the Cowboys to the playoffs.”This is not the time for me [to make a coaching change],” Jones told reporters postgame. “I’m looking ahead at another ballgame. I’m looking ahead at winning four or five straight and helping write a story they will talk about, how it looks like you’re down and out.”And I mean that. That’s the way that I’m operating. Every decision that I make over the next month will be with an eye in mind to get us in the Super Bowl now.””I wouldn’t make a change and give us a chance to do what I want to dream about doing. I wouldn’t do that for love nor money,” Jones said. “It would give us zero chance if we didn’t have [Garrett].”MORE: Who will replace Garrett if Cowboys fire their coach?Jones reportedly was on the verge of tears postgame. The emotion matched that of some of his players. One could be heard screaming inside the team’s locker room.last_img read more
