The Nationals announced on Friday that Dusty Baker will not be back as a manager in Washington.
The Nationals let Baker go after he lead them to the playoffs in his two years at manager but failed to win a series back to back years.
He finished with a .593 winning percentage going 192-132. His winning percentage was the best by a Washington Manager in Nationals history.
The team wrote in a letter saying “He is one of the true gentlemen in our sport, and we thank him for the successes that we enjoyed together over the last two years. We wish him nothing but the best going forward.”
Bakers contract was ending at the end of the season along with some of the other coaches on the Nationals roster.
The Kansas City Chiefs started off the 2017 season with a 5-0 record, since then they’ve lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers and lost their second game last night to the Raiders.
Both Derek Carr and Alex Smith had great games after they both threw 3 touchdowns each and 0 interceptions. Wider Reciever, Amari Cooper was unstoppable last night and that was a big game changer as he caught 11 passes for 210 yards along with two touchdowns.
It was a close most of the game but coming into the 4th quarter, The Chiefs had a two-score lead at 30-21. Toward the beginning of the fourth, the Raiders added another field goal to make the score 24-30 with the Chief winning.
It came down to the last few seconds… The Raiders were down 30-24 but had the ball at the two-yard line. Derek Carr threw a quick two-yard pass to Michael Crabtree for a touchdown to make the score 30-30 as time expired. The Raiders kicker finished the game by making the PAT. 31-30 Raiders.
The Detroit Rapper, Eminem, was at the Detroit Pistons Little Ceasers Arena Debut after the Pistons spent almost 40 years playing in the suburbs of Detroit.
Eminem was given the mic, for a pre-game speech and had a chance to say something to all the Pistons Fans. Eminem Hyped up Detroit by saying “Detroit, welcome them back for the first time in over 40 years to our city, to my city, to your city! Make some noise for the Detroit Pistons. Let’s go!”
Big Sean was also at the game, who got to hang out with Eminem where they got a chance to get their picture taken:
Eminem came in repping his Pistons gear with a blue Pistons shirt in the Piston win on Wednesday night. Check out the video of Eminem giving his speech at LCA:
The Packers announced Aaron Rodgers could possibly be out the rest of the season
In Sunday’s game against the Vikings, Packers QB, Aaron Rodgers went down with a broken right collarbone.
Rodgers was replaced by Brett Hundley, who couldn’t finish the game, as the Packers lost 23-10.
The Packers are one of the best teams in the NFL and coming to week 6 the packers were in my top 5 in NFL power rankings. The Packers will have to rely more on running and hand the ball more to running back, Ty Montgomery who hasn’t also dealt with injuries throughout this season. Aaron Rodgers has been pretty durable throughout his career, with Only one major injury in 2013 when he also had a collarbone injury.
Can The Packer Still Win The NFC North Without Rodgers?
Yes… but with the NFC North being kind of a tough division, they may want to consider signing another quarterback, as they have much of a less chance of winning the division without their star QB.
The Packers could sign Colin Kaepernick to fill their QB needs for the rest of the season but they may not due to the anthem protest. Comment Below about what you think the Packers should do!
The Vikings will be playing without Teddy Bridgewater’s replacement, Sam Bradford and will also be without number one WR, Stefon Diggs.
Vikings quarterback, Bradford returned last week after missing three weeks but his luck ran out after he suffered a knee injury late in the game. Case Keenum who hasn’t been too bad of a third-string quarterback finished the game for Bradford last week going 17 for 21 and 140 yards. (ESPN)
First String Wide Reciever, Stefon Diggs will also be out with an injured groin, which he had dealt with a little bit of last season. Stefon Diggs had low participation this week at practice for the Vikings, and it was announced he won’t be participating in this weekends game against the Packers.
Missing those two players is definitely a negative as they will be facing the one loss Packers who have been hot recently. Do you think the Vikings can handle missing two players or will they take a loss? Comment Below!
Ben Roethlisberger has been looking not to good after throwing 5 interceptions and zero touchdowns in his last game against the Jaguars. Ben Roethlisberger is 35 and his career could be coming to an end.
2 Adrian Peterson
Arian Peterson Isn’t too old at the age of 32 but his play hasn’t been looking to fresh…
3 Eli Manning
Eli Manning has lead his team to an 0-5 season at the age of 35 but still may have a few years left, if he keeps playing the way he has been, he should consider retiring.
4 Carson Palmer
Carson Palmer was considering retiring this offseason but decided to keep playing and hasn’t done too bad, but after this year I believe he will retire or play one more year.
5 Tom Brady
Tom Brady is, but getting pretty old (for the NFL) but still, has a little bit left. It seems like he is using every last drop of gas in him.
The Pistons have made some changes to their team this offseason and lots of people are doubting the Pistons and the changes they’ve been making.
The Pistons lost 2 of their starters, Marcus Morris to a trade, and KCP was a free agent who signed with the Lakers. The Marcus Morris trade was pretty even, The Celtics got Marcus Morris and the Pistons got Avery Bradley, who is one of the top defensive players in the league.
As a Pistons fan, I am not so sure that they will make the playoffs but if they do, here are the top 3 reasons the Pistons will make the playoffs.
1.Luke Kennard will win rookie of the year
The Pistons rookie Luke Kennard is expected to have a pretty good season but my prediction is he’ll be rookie of the year and will lead the Pistons to the playoffs
2. Andre Drummond Will Be An All-Star Again
Two years ago when the Pistons made the playoffs, Andre had a pretty good season and lead the Pistons to the playoffs, but since then it seems like he isn’t enjoying playing on the Pistons. I think he will possibly bounce back.
3. Stanley Johnson will be comeback player of the year
I’ve had high hopes for Stanley Johnson and I believe he will have a pretty good season and start the majority of the games.
