If I’m an organization or a Brendan Perlini Authentic Jersey team, I want the best players on my team. My fans deserve that. The players deserve that, Harper said. There’s a guy like Jake Arrieta out there right now. I’d put him on my staff any day of the week. He’s one of the best pitchers in the game, one of the best playoff pitchers in the game. You saw what he did last year, the year before.
But this whole ode to yesterday without adding anything new is concerning. Nance did the exact same dunk his dad did years ago. Mitchell did the exact same dunk Carter did years ago. Asking more of Mitchell seems unfair 鈥?that Carter dunk destroyed us 18 years ago. Mitchell was 3 years old when it happened. He grew up watching old clips of Carter’s dunks. Nance has surely seen his dad’s famous dunk a few times over the years. Copying those old dunks honors them, sure. But it’s not pushing the boundaries of dunk.
The Dunk Contest isn’t in crisis, because unless it’s amazing, everyone will forget about it until next February. The 2017 edition was awful 鈥?far less entertaining than the flawed 2018 vintage 鈥?but no one gave it a second thought in the past 11 months. Many had forgotten that Glenn Robinson III won it. (Guilty as charged.)
Saku Koivu Game Jersey
Leo Komarov Game Jersey Christian Yelich said his biggest disappointment is that Miami failed to make the playoffs or post a .500 record during his time there, and he cites the death of Jose Fernandez as the unfortunate turning point for the Marlins franchise.
Harper said Monday he was shocked the Marlins traded their entire outfield during the offseason. He added that Miami could have become a formidable team by adding a couple of pitchers.
Harper joined a chorus of critics questioning the direction of the Marlins under new CEO Derek Jeter.
Mattingly emphasized on Tuesday that it’s important to take care of your own dugout and said it’s not really [Harper’s] place to comment on us.
He doesn’t really know what goes on over here, Mattingly said. He may think he does. But he doesn’t know what the discussions are. He doesn’t know our players.
