How Yankees’ Austin Romine goes extra yard to prepare for his chances

Sonny Gray’s personal catcher spends about two-thirds of Yankees games sitting on the bench.

Austin Romine treats them all as if he’s behind the plate.

I call games in my head every time I’m watching a game, Romine said Wednesday before catching all 13 innings of the Yankees’ 3-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays, the first eight from Gray and then five from the bullpen. It’s just something I do. I’m looking at count situations and who’s up and who’s coming up. I think along with the game.

A plausible argument could be made that the close relationship between NFL teams and the publicly-owned stadiums transforms everything about the situation into a public event. Ultimately, an anthem-based fight would play out in every publicly-funded stadium, with careful inspection of the leases needed to determine whether there may be any plausible basis for arguing that private employers cannot infringe upon First Amendment rights in an inherently public setting.

A battle that head coach Doug Pederson tried very much to downplay.

If the tags go up at the same rate this year as last, it would cost the Raiders $17.4 million to tag Mack and the Rams $15.1 million to tag Donald in 2019. Those are bargain prices. And if Donald doesn’t report by August 11, he’ll lose the accrued season, and the Rams could put a restricted free agent tender on him next year, which, at the first-round level, would cost around $4 million (though another team would likely come in and poach him at that rate). Usually, these numbers can serve to set the framework for a deal.

Training on my own, Gronkowski said, via Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston. Felt like it was the best thing for me. . . . Felt like it was a good decision.

Gronkowski insists he remains on good terms with the team despite training elsewhere, but he was happy to see his teammates again.

As Dan Gilbert goes back to being Dan Gilbert, LeBron James learns consequences of forgiveness

LeBron James forgave Dan Gilbert. The last three years of Cleveland history not just Cavaliers history, and not just Cleveland sports history don’t happen if LeBron doesn’t forgive Gilbert. That includes Cleveland forgiving LeBron.

But football finance expert Dr. Rob Wilson has a solution for PSG if they really want Neymar.

After the Cavs signed Derrick Rose to a one-year deal Monday, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reported Rose was looking at a spot in the starting lineup in light of Irving’s trade request, and James was eager to see (Irving) off. James responded Tuesday morning on Twitter using the hashtag #NotFacts.

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith also reported if Irving happened to be standing in front of James the four-time NBA MVP would be tempted to beat (Irving’s) ass. James is apparently too busy enjoying his vacation to think about fighting a teammate.

It’s interesting to see James respond to these specific aspects of what has become an ugly situation. He denied these reports in the strongest terms with the #NotFacts hashtag, but he also didn’t come out and say he wants Irving to stay in Cleveland. Good luck to all you psychology majors out there trying to figure out what LeBron is thinking.

Things are always complicated when it comes to the Cavs. Always.

Would I rank LeBron over Kobe? In terms of best of all time? No, Jordan said at his Flight School camp in Santa Barbara, Calif. There’s something about five that beats three… Kobe won five championships. LeBron won three. Although he’s been to seven [consecutive] Finals.
