Daniel Murphy isn’t sure whether he’ll be ready for Opening Day as he continues to recover from offseason knee surgery.
I’m generally optimistic that when they put me in the lineup, I won’t come out, Murphy said Tuesday when asked about his chances of being ready for the Washington Nationals’ season opener against the Cincinnati Reds on March 29.
When American snowboarder Shaun White won his third gold medal, scoring 97.75 on his last run and beating out Japan’s Ayumu Hirano’s 95.25, the story we placed on him was the one of redemption. After finishing fourth in the Olympics in Sochi and suffering a scary fall in October which led to him getting 62 stitches, he was now back on top of the sport.
Sport has a very limited number of stories that it can tell. You’ve got the underdog story (which would have applied to Hirano had he won). You’ve got the greatest of all time cementing the legacy narrative, which could have been applied to White, but in this instance, wasn’t. (Perhaps the short history of snowboarding in the Olympics made it hard to really get historical with its narrative.)

No, he got the moment of redemption narrative. Which is Authentic Sam Steel Jersey odd; he’s the most decorated and wealthiest snowboarder ever.
Authentic Youth Graham Glasgow Jersey Hosmer has flourished in his limited exposure to Petco Park, logging a .441/.474/.765 slash line in 38 career at-bats at San Diego’s home park. He played at Petco in the 2016 All-Star Game and the 2017 World Baseball Classic.
I think Petco Park likes me, Hosmer said. Every time I go there, it seems to work out for me.
Before day games, you wake up and the weather is gorgeous outside and it makes you want to be out there. The city speaks for itself. The ballpark speaks for itself. I couldn’t think of a better place to go out and play baseball every day.
The new format has allowed the Three-Point Contest to reach new high scores. Craig Hodges’ 25-of-30 score in the first round had stood since 1986 until Jason Kapono tied him in 2008, but the added moneyball rack broke those records almost instantly. In 2015, Stephen Curry set a new high with 27 points (out of a new 34 total). The next year, Klay Thompson beat Curry in the contest while tying his record.
