Yankees 2020 Spring Training Nonsense Report!! #Winning!! Yankees

Yankees 2020 Spring Training Nonsense Report!! #Winning!! Yankees

               MLB Spring Training is rolling!! The New York Yankees have played 3 games and won none of them but are still winning in spring training.  MLB spring training is about moral victories and the Yankees are winning all the moral victories.  3 games in and the Yankees are looking like the juggernaut that they are being projected to be.  As long as they stay healthy they will be a problem once the season starts.  Let’s talk some Yankees Nonsense

Pitching

JA Happ – looked fantastic in the 2 innings that he pitch ending with 2 strikeouts in his short time.  Happ look fresh and somewhat rejuvenated this season.  Happ ended the season with 12 wins and 140 strikeouts, in a season where he was probably asked more than he could provide, which that should be different this year.  The Yankees have a bit more depth and even with injuries that could limit James Paxton (3-4 Months), Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka, Happ’s role should still be one that he can handle.  Happ will be a key player during the 1st half of the season.

Gerritt Cole – Debut went was expected 2 strikeouts in 1 inning and he looks like he is picking up right where he left off last season and that is exactly what the Yankees are needing.  Welcome to New York Cole!!!

–Replacing Dellin Betances—

Adonis Rosas, Domingo Acevedo, Jonathan Loaisiga, Albret Abreu are Luis Cessa are in charge of taking over those innings and they are all looking great.

Batting

Welcome Back Miguel Andujar!!!

Yankees Nonsense Conclusion

The Yankees look great so far in the areas that they should.  Injuries are still lagging but they are looking to have the depth to deal with.  So far, the Yankees pitching looks great as the are rotation through as many pitchers as possible.  Batting wise the health Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and the rest of the Bronx Bomber is crucial but with plenty of time till opening day they are looking good.

Fury Dominates Wilder

Tyson Fury dominates Deontay Wilder

I wanna clarify before anything that even though im not the biggest expert of the sport, nor boxing historian but I am a huge fan of the sport and i’ve followed it ever since I was a young kid watching the puertorican legends go against other legends and icons. I have seen a lot of youtube videos on boxing and its historic moments and i have learned as much as I have been able to. I am not exaggerating when I say this. I have NEVER seen a dominant champion get dominated the way Wilder was on saturday night.There is lot to talk about here. But first lets breakdown the fight.

The 7 Round Main Event was the biggest, was the biggest boxing event in since Mayweather vs Mcgregors and the biggest Heavyweight Boxing event in about 2 decades and it wasnt because of nothing. These are the two best heavyweights in the world facing eachother in their prime both with undefeated records at the time and coming off a historic first firght that ended in a draw. History bound to be made.

In Las Vegas, at the MGM Grand, the stage was set. The fight began with the showmanship from both WIlder and Fury. Tyson came in on a throne with a crown and a crown, Deontay came in with a mask and body armor almost like it was the Bronze Bomber in real life. The first round started really close there was only a 3 punch difference. Fury was moving as usual and Wilder was barely missing with his power punches but he was connecting with many of his bombs. Fury won the round with the end sequence in which he got a little combination. In the second round it was Deontay who took the round according to the tv scoreman.

But after the 3rd round it was as if someone flipped a switch in Deontay Wilder. He was a shadow of his former self in that fight ever since he got knocked down the first time. As a person who loves the psychological aspect of things and people, I saw a lot of things in his eyes, legitimate fear of not knowing what to do next, overanalyzing every little detail and yet at the same time it seemed like…nobody was there, like he wasnt there mentally. It was like that right until they threw in the towel. When that heppened, seemingly out of nowhere, he reuturned as if he realized that he could do no more. Now i will further analyze this in a YouTube video I plan on making because it has truly captivated me but I won’t leave you without giving credit to Tyson Fury.

What a magnificent gameplan. From being way heavier than Wilder to clinching to not allowing Wilder to get space. It’s crazy to me how he was able to move the way he usually moves and even with a new trainer. What a fighter. That Was NonSense!

Welcome to the Lakers Markieff Morris!! Reaction & Expectations!! & Kyle Kuzma!!

Welcome to the Lakers Markieff Morris!! Reaction & Expectations!! & Kyle Kuzma!!

               Is official Markieff Morris cleared waivers and signed the Lakers, who had to waive DeMarcus Cousins to be able to make it happen.  The Lakers’ didn’t make any big trades and just when they seem to have strike out on all buyout candidates, they land Morris.  Morris average 11 points and 3.9 rebounds with the Pistons so far this season.  Morris is a 6’8 245 lbs Power Forward who is having a career year percentage wise shooting 39.7% from the 3 Point.

               On paper Morris is a perfect fit with the Lakers, he brings strong defense and 3-point shooting with a veteran attitude.  Morris ability to switch on defenders could be his biggest attribute to the team.  The Lakers have to worried about throwing as many looks as possible to players like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kwahi Leonard.  And on the offensive side Morris’ 75 made 3s this season gives him the 4th most for the Lakers behind LeBron James, Danny Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

               Now Kyle Kuzma, if anybody should be worried and thankful is him.  Kuzma is 3rd scoring leader for the Lakers but his defensive liability some time makes him a target for other teams.  Which is where Morris comes in, to help out Kuzma focus more on scoring and less on defense, in theory or on a positive spin.  Now Kuzma, should also be worried because his minutes may be affected by Morris possibly fitting better than he does next to LeBron and AD defensively wise.  The goal for the Lakers is to make Morris and Kuzma work together creating a deadly bench mob.

               My expectations, best case scenario Morris will take a combination of Rondo, Caruso and KCP minutes.  This would make Kuzma, Morris and Dwight Howard to spend more time playing together and are already expected to have more impact on the game.  Morris’ lack of playoff experience can be a bit of a red flag but now with an opportunity of a lifetime and after leaving so much money on the table, Morris should be looking to breakout with the Lakers.

What are your expectations for Markieff Morris with the Lakers?

Jones Defeats Reyes

Jon Jones defeats Dominick Reyes via UD

After a grueling 5 round war, the legend of the sport, the best light heavyweight of all time, Jon “Bones” Jones, retained his title against the best version of Dominick Reyes in what was a surprising unanimous decision.

The fight in the beginning was all Reyes, who was completely outstriking the champion. He even rocked Jones right at the start of the first round. Reyes would continue the onslaught in rounds two and three. I would be a liar if I said that I expected the fight to be as close as it was. I thought Jones was just gonna run through him but i was wrong. The only thing that didn’t help the challenger in the fight was the inexperience in the championship rounds as he had never went to a 4th or 5th round, while Jon has entered late rounds in 8 of his last 10 fights.

By the end of the 3rd round we could see Dominick Reyes start to slow down. He had moved so much in the previous rounds that it was impossible to keep the same page. Jones was able to dictate the pase into his more methodical style and could control both championship rounds,

In the end, Jones was able to edge out the unanimous decision, But there are lots of people who think that Reyes should’ve taken the title. In my personal opinion though, I saw Jones winning the fight with how he kept pushing forward and looking to engage and also take Reyes down towards the end, however. I do not think it should’ve been unanimous by any means. The fight was very close and Reyes to me did enough to win as well, in a fight that anybody could have won. It is what it is tho,

Now it’s a matter of what is next for the champion. He could very well face Reyes again, or take on the winner of Corey Anderson vs Jan Blachiowitz. But I personally think a move up to heavyweight is gonna be his next call. Who knows really.

What do you think? Who did you think won the fight? What is nexr for Jones? Either way, Until next time. That Was NonSense

Betts Traded to DODGErs

Mookie is goin Hollywood

I can’t believe this is a real trade got pulled off! Its simply not a trade you see every day. A Franchise star moving just days before spring training begins. But it is indeed happening. Let’s take you back.

It wasn’t that long ago that we first heard rumours of the Sox looking to move Mookie and his huge contract. There was a lot of noice but I figured that the one who was gonna be moved was JD Martinez. Few weeks go by and the Stros sign stealing scandal happens and we heard no news. And then what to me at the moment sealed the deal was when Betts signed a deal to avoid arbitration.

But a couple of days ago the news broke on a huge three team trade that would send the former AL MVP along with David Price to the Dodgers.

Full trade breakdown:

  • DODGERS Receive : Mookie Betts, David Price + cash from BOS
  • RED SOX Receive: Alex Verdugo, Brusdar Graterol
  • TWINS Receive: Kenta Maeda

For the Dodgers, I dont know how they did it, but they are even better than last year, with reigning NL MVP Chris Taylor, Corey Seager, Justin Turner, Chris Taylor, and now Mookie to the lineup plus another great arm added to the rotation Next to Buehler and Kershaw it’s looking like one of the Dodgers best deals of all time and it might be the missing piece the Dodgers need to finally win the championship that has eluded them for so long.

Minnesota also walks away a winner. A team that last year showed a lot of improvement and looks like it could be a contender in the next couple of seasons and now adding a much needed arm might make them a team to look out for in the upcoming season.

Now for Boston, there’s not a lot of possitives here for the team, they just lost their star and piece for building the team for years to come. This could be because of the Sign stealing situation, maybe from the Red Sox as a sort of apology or punnisment perhaps. This is a very interesting theory that needs a post all to itself, but it’s crazy timing.

Either way I can’t wait to see how LAD does this season. What do you think? Do LA have enough to win it all? Let Us Know down below. That was NonSense.
