Skip Bayless has 'no sympathy' for Dak Prescott after Dallas quarterback opens up about depression

By xa1
  • Night net Cowboys American Football Skip Bayless has made a career of delivering head-turning and blistering hot takes, but the notorious commentator reached a new low Thursday.Bayless, speaking on "Skip and Shannon: Undisputed," said he had "no sympathy" for Dak Prescott after the Cowboys quarterback went public about his depression before and after the April death of his older brother, Jake Prescott. Bayless argued that, as the leader of an Night net franchise, Prescott needed to be a "CEO" of the football team — presumably not allowing himself to be vulnerable or to be affected in his ability to prepare for the season. I have battled depression for my entire life, and it is a silent killer.Luckily, I’m still standing, but many don’t make it through.This is a woefully insensitive and horrible take by Skip Bayless.pic.twitter.com/vDZy6qONQR— John Ellis (@OnePantherPlace) September 10, 2020"I'm going to ask our audience to feel free to go ahead and condemn me, if you choose, as cold-blooded and insensitive on this issue. I have deep compassion for clinical depression. But when it comes to the quarterback of an Night net team — you know this better than I do — it's the ultimate leadership position in sports, am I right about that? You are comman[......]

    World Series 2013: Cardinals need Wacha to save them again

    By xa1
  • ST. LOUIS — In 2004 and 2007, the Boston Red Sox swept the World Series, with their clinching victories coming in National League parks. They are now one win away from doing something that they have not done since 1918: celebrate a championship at Fenway Park.The Red Sox are 3-0 all time in Game 6 of the World Series at Fenway, having wrapped up that 1918 title and notched victories in 1967 and 1975 to force ultimately fruitless Game 7s. The task of leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a historic win falls to Michael Wacha , who already in these playoffs became the first visiting pitcher to win a Game 4 at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. MORE: Red Sox's formula works again | Spector's recap | Box score | Photo gallery | ScheduleGranted, Game 4 of the division series was the first Game 4 ever played at the Pirates' ballpark, but it did come with the Cardinals facing elimination, and Wacha took a no-hitter into the eighth inning. The rookie is 4-0 with a 1.00 ERA in the pl夜网论坛ayoffs. "That gives me a little experience, I guess, pitching an elimination game," Wacha said after the Cardinals' 3-1 loss to the Red Sox on Monday night. "I'm just gonna go out there and try to get a win for this club. That's what we need."Thursday's first pitch is scheduled for 8:07 p.m. ET.One of the keys to getting that win is to figure out a way to deal with David Ortiz, whose two-run homer in Game 2 accounts for 67 percent of the runs allowed by Wacha in October. Ortiz is batting .733 in the World Se[......]

    World Series 2013 Game 2: Kozma quickly makes amends

    By xa1
  • BOSTON — Pete Kozma slept just fine on Wednesday night after his two errors helped open the door to the Boston Red Sox's rout of the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series. Then Kozma took a nap on Thursday afternoon for good measure. He may also be asleep right now.In less than 24 hours, Kozma went from goat to hero. Inserted as a pinch runner in the seventh inning, he stole third base and came around to score the tying run in Game 2 as the Cardinals went on to a 4-2 win to tie the series at a game apiece. He made important defensive plays after remaining in the game at shortstop, proving that his errors were indeed uncharacteristic of one of the National League's best at the position. MORE: Game 2 recap | Stats | Series photo gallery | ScheduleAfter the Cardinals' victory, they blasted LMFAO in the vistiors' clubhouse at Fenway Park. Kozma took his time showering and getting dressed, and blasted ZZZZZ. "Yesterday's behind us," he said when asked how the quick turn of events involving him felt. "We looked at our mistakes, learned from them, and moved on to today."How about that slick barehanded play on Stephen Drew's ground ball that bounced off pitcher Carlos Martinez's glove? It kept the Red Sox from bringing the tying run to the plate in the bottom of the seventh."It's not really a boost or anything," Kozma said. "Yesterday, I thought it was like a fluke. Like I said, we put our mistakes behind us and learned from them."But夜网论坛 you've got to admit, that[......]

    By xa1
  • With Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran on board via free agency, the New York Yankees have let other teams know veteran Ichiro Suzuki is available, the Journal News reports.But other clubs are much more interested in Brett Gardner, according to the report. — SN ranks the 20 best managers of all timeThe market for the 40-year-old Suzuki figures to be limited. He will make $13 million in 2013, the second and final year of his contract.

    Nelson Cruz free agent rumors: Are Mariners his best option?

    By xa1
  • Nelson Cruz, an unsigned free agent outfielder, could wind up with the Seattle Mariners, according to reports circulating on the Hot Stove circuit. Or, Cruz could return to the Texas Rangers. Or, he could join the Detroit Tigers.First, the Mariners: Well-connected Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports says the M's interest in Cruz is increasing as they consider throwing more money into their roster this season. Cruz would help protect the team's biggest offseason investment, second baseball Robinson Cano, in a revamped batting order. Also on the Mariners' map: reliever Fernando Rodney, a Dominican pal of Cruz and Cano.While the Rangers claim they have replaced Cruz with free-agent signee Shin-Soo Choo, there's still a need for a right-handed power hitting in their lineup. If the Rangers want him back, however, it appears Cruz would get a one-year deal. Cruz could help a lot of power-hungry clubs, except for two little problems. One, a team signing him must fork over draft compensation. Two, his 50-game ban in the Biogenesis debacle raised questions whether, at age 33, he is on the downhill side of his career.Last week, SN's Jesse Spector mentioned the Tigers appear to have renewed their interest in Cruz. However, Spector mentions another problem in Cruz's game that could be a significant drawback. Cruz 夜网论坛isn't suited to playing in big outfields, such as the one in Comerica Park.Cruz will get a job somewhere, because he can hit, Spector noted. Seattle might be his best bet.Rod[......]

    Indians to unveil Jim Thome statue in August

    By xa1
  • CLEVELAND — When Jim Thome first started pointing his bat toward the pitcher, he never imagined that subtle movement would one day become immortalized.The Indians announced Saturday that they will unveil a statue of Thome at Progressive Field on Aug. 2. Cleveland's career leader in home runs will be forever honored with the statue, which depicts him standing in the batter's box and directing his bat toward the mound. Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Feller is the only other Cleveland player to also be honored with a statue outside the ballpark. Thome never could have imagined such a tribute, and is humbled by the salute."As a player, I don't even want to say you dream of that," said Thome, who retired in 2012 with 612 career homers. "When it happens, when the opportunity comes about, it's humbling. It's just a wonderful thing. My family is just ecstatic about it." One of Cleveland's most popular players, Thome hit 337 homers with the Indians. He broke in with the club as a slender third baseman in 1991 and developed into one of baseball's most feared hitters.Early in his career, Cleveland minor league hitting coach Charlie Manuel, who went on to manage Philadelphia to a World Series title, suggested to Thome that he should point his bat at the pitcher to loosen him up before hitting.Manuel got the idea after watching Robert Redford's character Roy Hobbs in the film "The Natural.""Charlie had seen a clip of Roy Hobbs pointing the bat," Thome said. "When I got in the box, I[......]
