JoJo Natson returns it 15 yards to the Rams’ 31-yard line. 8:36 p.m.: Another touchback off the leg of Zuerlein. The Seahawks will again start from their 25.  Greg Zuerlein is known for having one of the strongest legs in the NFL, so when Jared Goff marched the Rams down to the Seattle 26, setting up Zuerlein for a 44-yard field goal attempt, late in the fourth quarter Thursday, Los Angeles had just the chance it wanted.The kick had the distance, but it was just wide right, and as Zuerlein looked on in disbelief, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll raced down the sideline of a roaring CenturyLink Field in Seattle after realizing his team had hung on for a 30-29 win on “Thursday Night Football.” Even getting a chance at a final drive seemed improbable for the Rams. Tedric Thompson had just gotten his hand underneath a Goff pass for an interception with just over two minutes remaining. After the Seahawks (4-1) failed to get a game-clinching first down, they pinned the Rams (3-2) at their own 7 with 1:38 to play. LA had no timeouts.MORE: Watch the NFL live on fuboTV (free 7-day trial)Goff, though, managed to get off nine plays to set up Zuerlein’s kick.Momentum seemed to be heading in the Rams’ direction at the end of the first half when Seattle’s Josh Myers missed a field-goal attempt and Goff promptly led LA on a 62-yard scoring drive that cut Seattle’s lead to 14-13. The Rams added another touchdown on the first drive of the second half to take a 20-14 lead. last_img read more

Will the Cowboys fire Jason Garrett? The coaching drama drags on in Dallas

first_imgWhat are the Cowboys doing with Jason Garrett? That’s the big question in Dallas, and there doesn’t appear to be a clear answer.The Cowboys closed out the year with a victory over the Redskins in their season finale, but they missed the playoffs after the Eagles defeated the Giants to capture the NFC East crown. Ever since the clock hit zero Sunday, it has felt like a matter of when, not if, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would fire Garrett. MORE: Ranking replacement candidates if Cowboys fire GarrettAs of Friday afternoon, though, Garrett is still officially the team’s head coach. After 10 seasons with Garrett at the helm, is Jones ready to start fresh? Or will he stick with Garrett despite a disappointing 8-8 campaign?Here’s the latest reporting around the league as Garrett awaits his fate:News, updates on Jason Garrett’s status with Cowboys— Garrett met with Jones and his son Stephen, who is Dallas’ executive vice president, Monday following the Cowboys’ final regular-season game, but media members were told no official decisions would be made that day.— Following Monday’s meeting, Garrett spoke with Jerry and Stephen Jones again Tuesday, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer. That conversation ended without any resolution as well.— David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reported Garrett was supposed to have yet another discussion with Jerry and Stephen Jones on Thursday before they determined Garrett’s future with the organization. — The Cowboys decided Garrett “will not be part of the organization moving forward,” according to ESPN’s Ed Werder.Source: #Cowboys Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones have moved slowly and with “abundance of care and respect” for Jason Garrett. That phase expected to conclude soon with Garrett not part of organization. Next phase to involve candidate interviews will begin quickly thereafter.— Ed Werder (@WerderEdESPN) January 3, 2020— Following the ESPN report, the Cowboys announced Friday that there is “no official news” regarding Garrett’s status. NFL Network’s Jane Slater noted that Dallas coaches and players have yet to be informed of any changes.At this hour, coaches and players tell me they have not been informed of any changes at the head coaching position. #Cowboys HC Jason Garrett, himself, has yet to respond to my inquiries. If a decision is imminent, it has still not been conveyed.— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) January 3, 2020— Important date worth noting: Garrett’s contract expires Jan. 14.last_img read more

Jose Martinez trade grades: Rays pay for offense; Cards cash in some depth

first_imgSt. Louis could have him begin the 2020 season at high-A Palm Beach rather than make him go back to the Midwest League with Peoria. Rodriguez figures to start out in the extreme low minors Martinez and Arozarena, frankly, were not an overpay. Regardless of how one views the Cardinals’ remaining outfield depth — Harrison Bader, Dexter Fowler, Tyler O’Neill, Lane Thomas and Justin Williams are still on the 40-man roster — those two were not frontline players and their exits won’t harm St. Louis’ chances in 2020.There was speculation that this trade could be a precursor to the Cardinals re-signing free-agent outfielder Marcell Ozuna or a way of strengthening a possible St. Louis trade offer for Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado. Liberatore, 20, becomes the Cardinals’ No. 3 minor league prospect according to MLB Pipeline, one spot behind childhood friend Nolan Gorman.FAGAN: How does Matthew Liberatore fit into the Cards’ plans?The deal turned out to be just the first of the night for Tampa Bay, which later sent right-hander Austin Pruitt to the Astros in exchange for two minor leaguers, right-hander Peyton Battenfield and outfielder Cal Stevenson.Sporting News takes a deeper look at the Martinez trade and hands out early grades:Rays’ grade: BMartinez’s value lies in his offense, and his career .976 OPS against left-handers makes the right-handed hitter an ideal complement to left-handed-hitting outfielders Austin Meadows and Kevin Kiermaier. His offense is so enticing that Tampa Bay, which highly values catching the ball, is willing to take on Martinez’s subpar defense (minus-9 Defensive Runs Saved in 2019, tied for fifth-worst among 228 MLB right fielders).UPDATE: According to MLB.com, Martinez will serve mainly as a platoon designated hitter-first baseman. Martinez has played first base in 118 MLB games, but adding him there further crowds the position for the Rays, who also have Ji-Man Choi, Yandy Diaz, Nate Lowe, Brian O’Grady and two-way player Brendan McKay.Arozarena, 24, will be a candidate for the new 26th roster spot in MLB this year, although the Rays already had a lot of options for that spot (O’Grady and Michael Brosseau, to name just two). He is best known for his speed (the Cardinals used him as a pinch runner six times after his call-up from the minors), but he also has shown moderate power in the minor leagues (15 home runs last season).ARENADO RUMORS: Six potential landing spots if Rox decide to deal himNot to be lost in this deal is the swap of draft picks. Tampa Bay is moving up 28 positions, from 66th overall (in Comp Round B) to 38th overall (in Comp Round A), according to the Cardinals’ trade announcement.The price for all of that was Liberatore, the Rays’ first-round pick (16th overall) in the 2018 draft, and the 19-year-old Rodriguez, who was limited to 10 games in the Gulf Coast League last season. It’s too early to tell whether they represent an overpay, but Tampa Bay isn’t getting away cheaply by giving up Liberatore, the fourth-ranked left-handed pitching prospect in the minors according to MLB Pipeline.Cardinals’ grade: B-plusThe real grade will be posted when/if Liberatore reaches the majors, because right now he’s just someone who pitched in 16 games (15 starts) at low Single-A Bowling Green last season. His numbers in those 16 games did hint at his ability, however, as he posted a 3.10 ERA and averaged 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings. Walks were an issue (3.6 per nine), but he was a master at keeping the ball in the yard (just two home runs allowed in 78 1/3 innings). The Rays and Cardinals got together Thursday on a trade that included four players and two draft picks. St. Louis sent outfielders Jose Martinez and Randy Arozarena to Tampa Bay in exchange for left-handed pitching prospect Matthew Liberatore and minor league catcher Edgardo Rodriguez. The teams also swapped positions in the compensatory rounds of the 2020 MLB Draft.Martinez and Arozarena make three new outfielders for Tampa Bay this offseason, joining Hunter Renfroe, who was obtained from the Padres in a trade that sent Tommy Pham to San Diego. (Offseason signee Yoshitomo Tsutsugo played the outfield in Japan, but the Rays list him as an infielder.) last_img read more

A new beginning: Mayor and three council members sworn into office

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — It is official. Wellington is now under the leadership of a whole new city council. Tuesday evening Wellington City Mayor Shelley Hansel was sworn in as was city council members Kelly Green, Jim Valentine and Kip Etter. The mayor and council members will serve four-year terms ending in 2019.The occasion was monumental for two reasons.1) For the first time in its history, Wellington inducted a woman mayor. Hansel replaces Roger Stallbaumer, who has led the council since 2007.2) It ends what has been the city of Wellington’s progression from an eight-member two-year term ward boundary board to a six-member four-year at-large board. Up until Tuesday’s meeting, the city council was still in transition. In 2013, Wellington voters elected the new six-member council. However, in order to stagger the positions so not all six members were elected at once, three members in 2013 were elected to two-year terms, while the three others were elected for four-year terms.Now in 2015, everybody is serving a full term with three of the six council members up for election in 2017, and the newly inducted ones up for election in 2019.When those elections will be held will be determined by the Kansas State Legislature, which is debating over whether to move the elections to the fall.“I have to admit in all my years in television, I did not get this nervous,” Hansel said after receiving the gavel.Council member John Brand, who is leaving the board after five years, thanked the community and asked that everyone stick together moving forward.“I think the community of Wellington has lost a little of that recently,” Brand said. “It’s time to get it back.”He said the duties of the new council is to listen and debate both sides of the issue, but once a decision is made, that there shouldn’t be looking back with regret.Valentine said everyone who ran for election were winners not just the people now sitting up front.Stallbaumer thanked the community in his speech.“It’s been an enjoyable eight years… most of it. Nobody bats a 1.000,” Stallbaumer said. “But you got our best effort.”Wellington City Manager Roy Eckert thanked the two outgoing candidates for their service and asked them to keep servicing the community in other ways.Even if both Stallbaumer and Brand are off the council, neither two candidates are done with community service. Stallbaumer was recently named to serve on the Wellington Housing Authority. Brand will continue to serve on the Wellington Recreation Board as a city council representative until his term expires in September.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
