As the Texas Rangers continue to fall off the pace in the American League West, president and general manager Jon Daniels isn’t looking to place the blame on his coaching staff.
With the MLB draft (June 4) and the trade deadline (July 31) looming, Daniels is looking at rebuilding the team’s depth at the minor league level.
You are always looking to get better, Daniels said. “Obviously, we are not in a great spot in the standings, That will influence things. You try and take a step back and look at things for this year, next year and the foreseeable future, where you want to be and what is the best way to get there.”
Still, Yankees manager Aaron Boone said he believes Gregorius hasn’t been as bad as the numbers have shown and that he’s not far from busting out.
I think if you look back at a lot of our games of late, there’s been two or three times in a game where he’s really stung the ball, Boone said before the Yankees and Nationals were rained out for the second straight day at Nationals Park on Wednesday.
He added, While I know he’s going through a tough stretch right now, I certainly don’t believe it’s as bad as the not-getting-hits because I do feel like there’s been a fair amount of good contact in there.
One good beating per series is plenty for Draymond Green and Golden State.
The Warriors got it in Game 2 at Houston, and now the defending champions plan to do what they seem to do best: bounce back with brilliance.
As the Western Conference finals showdown shifts to Oracle Arena for Sunday’s Game 3, tied at one game apiece, the Warriors have spent the past few days discussing their Game 2 troubles –a 127-105 loss and what they’re striving to do in order not to be dominated again.
It’s time to play.
“I think we’re at our best when we feel threatened,” Green said Saturday. “Game 1 we felt threatened, we came out with a sense of urgency. Game 2 we maybe didn’t feel as threatened and the sense of urgency wasn’t there. I think you’re allowed one of those a series. We’ve had our one, now it’s time to lock in for the remainder of the series.”
