The NFL announced its Pro Bowl selections on Tuesday, which triggered the usual outbursts over snubs, both real and imagined more on those below. All snubs are not created equal. The purest snubs outplayed the selections at their positions and should have earned spots on the conference roster instead. Other snubs enjoyed Pro Bowl-caliber seasons, only to lose out because other players at their positions were similarly worthy. Some of the most unfortunate snubs befall players the NFL lists at incorrect positions. That is how the Chiefs Chris Jones, listed by the league as a defensive end, missed the Pro Bowl while collecting 14 sacks as a defensive tackle. Should a defensive tackle beat out actual defensive ends Maybe, but hes more a victim of the system than an outright snub. Other players are among a growing list who can blame an outdated voting structure. While the NFL has become a league featuring three-receiver personnel,...
The Los Angeles Lakers arent getting Trevor Ariza. Who else might be headed to L.A. to provide reinforcement for LeBron James & Co. this season According to a report by ESPNs Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers re-engaged the Phoenix Suns in Ariza trade talks after the breakdown of a proposed three-team trade including the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night. However, the Suns instead chose to deal Ariza directly to the Washington Wizards, taking Kelly Oubre Jr. and Austin Rivers in return. Ariza, who was a part of the Lakers 2009 championship team, was one of a handful of players who fit the teams desire to add a veteran in the final year of his contract so as to preserve cap space for the summer of 2019.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurleyis considered day-to-day because of inflammation in his left knee, coach Sean McVay said Monday. Gurley was sidelined for a series in the third quarter of Sunday nights 30-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. After the game, Gurley said, I returned, so I was fine. He rushed for 48 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries and caught 10 passes for 76 yards. The Rams 11-3 have clinched the NFC West, but have two regular-season games remaining against the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers. Despite a secured playoff berth, McVay said the final two games remained important and that he would prefer that Gurley play, if he was available. If hes able to go, we want him to be able to go, McVay said. But if its something that whether youre playing for the playoffs or whether youre not, were always going to be smart with a player like Todd. ...
The winter meetings were mostly a bust. Most of the offseason trades have involved Jerry Dipoto, including one the Mariners general manager completed from a hospital bed. The Dodgers, with money to spend and players to trade, have added only reliever Joe Kelly to their roster so far. We are seeing movement on the starting pitcher market. Patrick Corbin signed with the Nationals before the winter meetings, and then the meetings began with Nathan Eovaldi officially re-signing with the Red Sox. Since then, reports say agreements are in place between Charlie Morton and the Rays two years, $30 million, plus a vesting option J.A. Happ and the Yankees two years, $34 million and Lance Lynn and the Rangers three years, $30 million. That means five of the top six free-agent starters are now off the market. But a lot of teams are still looking for starting pitching If there was one common refrain from the managers as...
