Justin Verlander Traded By Mets And Going Back To Houston
Good morning, Sports fans! Davey Mac is back with an exciting Sports Report for ya on a Wednesday! We’ve got continued sniping between the Jets and Broncos! The Yankees and Mets are in the toilet! World Cup update! And more! But first!
We’ve got breaking news from Major League Baseball! Met starter Justin Verlander appears to be headed back to the Houston Astros. A report is stating that the Mets will trade Verlander to the Astros for two of Houston’s best prospects.
The Mets will receive outfielder Drew Gilbert…who is the top-rated prospect by the Astros…and outfielder Ryan Clifford. Verlander goes back to Houston where he won two World Series and two Cy Young awards (he has three overall).
This is a potentially good move for both teams. The Astros get their ace back…and the Mets acquire good prospects. Win-win. Now let’s get to the Scoreboard!
The Yankees lost yet again as the Yanks fell to the Rays last night…5 to 2. Carlos Rodon receives the loss…as the Yankees drop to 55 and 52…last place in the A.L. East and 11 games out of first in the division. Awful.
The Mets lost to the Royals…7 to 6…as the Mets fall to 50 and 56…as they too have been terrible this year.
Meanwhile, the Phillies beat the Marlins…3 to 1…as they stay hot. The Phillies are now 58 and 49 for the season.
Football. The Jets Vs. Broncos beef is staking a new twist. New York Jets offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett replied to Denver Broncos’ new head coach Sean Payton…after Payton said that Hackett (who was the head coach of the Broncos last year) did the worst head coaching job in NFL history.
Hackett says that Payton violated an unwritten “code” that exists among coaches. Hackett said: “As a coach, as a coach’s kid, we live in a glass house. We know that. We all live in different rooms, and we all have a key to it. It’s one of those things, there’s a code, there’s a way things are done in that house.”
Basketball. Bronny James was seen playing piano in a video posted by his father, LeBron James, on Saturday, five days after the teenager went into cardiac arrest during a basketball workout at the University of Southern California.
Soccer. The U.S. will play Sweden on Sunday at 5 AM on FOX.
