Baker Mayfield will get his second probability, plus the Yankees are barely hanging on in our Energy Rankings

Completely satisfied Tuesday, everybody. It is Wajih AlBaroudi filling in for Zach Pereles as soon as once more. 

With out additional ado, let’s roll. 

Good morning to everybody however particularly to…


After an offseason quarterback battle between commerce acquisition Baker Mayfield and the incumbent Sam Darnold, the Panthers named Mayfield their starter for the 2022 season. The constructive information needed to have relieved Mayfield, who’s endured something however following his rocky 2021 marketing campaign (17 touchdowns, 13 interceptions and three,010 yards over 14 video games). 

For context, here is a take a look at how Mayfield’s offseason performed out previous to him profitable the job in Carolina

  • March 17: Mayfield requested a trade from the Browns amid talks of the crew going after Deshaun Watson, just for the request to be denied.
  • April: Panthers receiver Robbie Anderson commented “Nooooo” on an Instagram put up suggesting Mayfield could be a great match for Carolina
  • July 6: The Panthers traded for Mayfield after he’d been accessible for months, and all they’d to surrender for the 2018 No. 1 general decide was a conditional 2024 fifth-rounder. 

Even Progressive did not need Mayfield, because the insurance coverage firm declined to make extra At Residence With Baker Mayfield commercials after the Browns dealt him away. Mayfield, who shared Progressive’s determination in his first press conference with the Panthers, mentioned it was a “missed alternative.” 

Mayfield may have a possibility to resurrect his NFL profession in Carolina, the place he’ll play with two of one of the best weapons he is ever had in receiver DJ Moore and working again Christian McCaffrey. His first take a look at: the Panthers’ home-opener towards Cleveland on Sept. 11, a revenge sport he needs to be salivating over. 

And never such a very good morning for…

Edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux, who the Giants took fifth general within the 2022 NFL Draft, suffered an MCL sprain in the course of the G-Males’s preseason game towards the Bengals.

Whereas the harm does not appear to be Earth-shattering, it might’ve been ultimate for Thibodeaux to get as many coaching camp reps as potential in Don “Wink” Martindale’s notoriously blitz-happy scheme. He will not get that probability now. 

The Giants had terrible harm luck in 2021. That they had the third-highest adjusted video games misplaced on offense. Key contributors similar to quarterback Daniel Jones, left deal with Andrew Thomas, working again Saquon Barkley and receivers Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard and Kenny Golladay have been amongst those that missed at the very least three video games. 

Starting the very subsequent season with a prime defensive participant on the shelf positively is not how New York desires to begin the Brian Daboll period. 

MLB Energy Rankings: Yankees narrowly stay in prime 5 ⚾

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at New York Yankees


After a terrific 61-23 begin to the season, the Yankees have utterly flatlined by going 14-25 and 6-14 in August. The Yankees’ extended nosedive left our MLB scribe Matt Snyder conflicted over how he ought to rank them in his most recent MLB Power Rankings.

This is how he settled his inside debate: 

  • Snyder: “If we solely regarded on the general report and run differential, it is a no-doubt top-five crew. However as I’ve gone to nice lengths to level out over time in doing this, the rankings are my subjective intersection of season-long physique of labor and ‘what have you ever achieved currently?’ If I again myself right into a digital ‘tie’ in my head, the tiebreaker is who I believe would win a seven-game collection between the 2 tied groups. What number of groups would we truly decide the Yankees to beat in a seven-gamer at this actual second? The checklist is not almost as lengthy appropriately, proper?”

In the long run, Snyder settled on fifth for the Bronx Bombers. He has the Dodgers, Mets, Astros and Braves forward, in that order. 

The next groups have been Snyder’s greatest movers, and the most important of all of them moved within the mistaken course regardless of trading for the one of the MLB’s best players in Juan Soto earlier this month. That is proper: the Padres fell 4 spots, from eighth to twelfth, after dropping a mixed 4 video games towards the lowly Marlins and Nationals.

The Kevin Durant sweepstakes are nonetheless going sturdy virtually two months because the Nets star requested a commerce, and his checklist of suitors has solely grown as Brooklyn calls for a return it deems worthy of the previous league MVP. After initially listing the Suns and Heat as his most popular locations, Durant has reportedly been sought out by the Celtics, Raptors and 76ers. 

A brand new crew has jumped into the combo, in accordance with The Athletic’s Shams Charania, and it is an thrilling one: the Grizzlies. Contemporary off their breakthrough 2021-22 marketing campaign spearheaded by Ja Morant and ascending function gamers similar to Desmond Bane and Dillon Brooks, Memphis is outwardly able to make an excellent larger splash this season. 

Nevertheless, it’ll take a number of work to get achieved. Our NBA knowledgeable Jasmyn Wimbish explains further

  • Wimbish: “Brooklyn has maintained that it desires to be aggressive this season, and the asking value for Durant has been All-Star expertise, high quality function gamers and draft picks, per Charania. If that is the barometer for the Nets, then it sounds as if Memphis must embrace Jackson Jr. to maneuver the needle in any respect, and that is assuming Brooklyn values Jackson Jr. that extremely to be OK with him being the centerpiece of a commerce.”

Whereas Durant nonetheless has eyes elsewhere, it appears his celebrity teammate is staying put. The Nets have reportedly knowledgeable groups they intend to maintain Kyrie Irving, whose title swirled in commerce talks all summer season, this season.
