Yes, the regular season schedule is coming soon
Tonight, we’ll know the who, when, and where as to the four weeks of preseason action. In roughly a week, we’ll know one critical factor as to the 17 weeks of regular-season contests: The when.
All opponents for all teams became known when the 2017 season ended. But filling in the when — especially as it relates to prime-time games and big events like Thanksgiving — will be a major news event the sports world, to the likely dismay of the other sports that actually will have meaningful events next week.
Oladipo said Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert provided him with extra motivation, citing his offseason remark that Indiana should have received better talent from Oklahoma City in return for Paul George. You could say it added fuel to the fire, Oladipo said. I’m aware of what he said. Can’t control his opinion.
Jordan Raanan of ESPN noted the release saves the Giants $5.2 million in cap space.
The 34-year-old UCF product finished the 2017 season on injured reserve after suffering an ankle injury in October that required surgery.
Marshall told Ralph Vacchiano of SNY in December he was close to getting full clearance and planned to play for at least a couple more seasons.
I think I’m two great years away from … and I’ll say it: I want to be a Hall of Famer, he said. And I think I got two great years to go to be mentioned with some of the greats. I’m not playing this game just to be a guy. I want to be remembered for the product that I put on the field.
Marshall failed to make much of an impact during his only year with the Giants. He caught 18 passes for 154 yards with no touchdowns in five appearances.
Mattingly, a former Yankees captain, pulled Garcia after 77 pitches against the Mets last Wednesday, saying it was an easy decision because the 25-year-old lefty, a rookie reliever last season, never would have been left in long enough to finish a no-hitter.
Garcia was far less efficient this time, throwing only 48 of 92 pitches for strikes while earning his second career win. But he put together a streak of 10 1/3 hitless innings against New York teams and still hasn’t given up a run as a big league starter.
