RHP Marcus Stroman fueled the Mets with a do-it-all effort en route to a series-splitting 6-2 win over the Padres at Petco Park in San Diego.
According to MLB.com, a balk is when “when a pitcher makes an illegal motion on the mound that the umpire deems to be deceitful to the runner(s).” When looking at the video, Alzolay made the slightest of movements prior to winding up, and the home plate umpire felt that it was worthy of a balk. Not much more can be said.Houston Astros Face Coverings

Perhaps the only thing more huge right now when it comes to the two teams involved in that trade is the hole it left on a Cubs roster that is missing that one, dominant starting pitcher that might make the surging Cubs look like a bona fide NL contender.
It’s still an awful trade, and Kelenic’s struggles doesn’t justify Brodie Van Wagenen’s bone-headed decision to bring in Robinson Cano. No wonder Van Wagenen is out of a job. https://t.co/mhYNjJEG2D
"I think after the first game I started, coming in pinch-hitting there's always this nervous energy, you have such a short period of time to kind of feel like you can make an impact on the game," Pillar said. "Obviously not playing a while, first at-bat, there's some nervous energy. I think starting the first time, too, the nervous energy was just excitement for me, I was just excited to be back out there and excited to go through a full game again and be one of the guys.Kansas City Royals Face Coverings

Booker hit all six of his 3-point attempts and went 8 for 9 overall while the Suns took a 36-14 lead after one quarter. The six-year veteran showed none of the shakiness from earlier in the series against the Lakers, shredding the NBA's best defensive team with his silky-smooth jumper and heady penetration.

"We got a lot of dudes that are tough players, man," Porter said. "Like me, I had my moment in the first half and then I cooled off. I don't think I scored [the rest of the game]. Then Jokic obviously took over, but the way Austin and AG had their moments, and Monte, J-Myke -- we just have a lot of dudes that are capable."

Dalton: Hurts’ floor is low given his small track record, but his ceiling is a top-three fantasy QB given his rushing upside. Hurts put up video game type numbers rushing in college (including 1,300 yards and 20 rushing scores his final season), and he was equally as aggressive running when he took over in Philadelphia. The Eagles upgraded their offensive line and drafted DeVonta Smith during the offseason, helping his situation as well. I have Hurts at the top of my second tier of fantasy QBs, right there with Kyler Murray, Russell Wilson and Justin Herbert. I’ll be proactively picking him for sure.

I grew up in Los Angeles, went to school at Montclair Prep in the San Fernando Valley and Stanford, and relied on my intellect to have as long a professional career as I had.

That’s a better layout than Watson’s cap hit, which would see the majority of his $21.6 million signing bonus pushed into 2022.

Dalton: I have Goedert as my TE7 and could easily see him having a better fantasy season than Mark Andrews and Kyle Pitts as well. I still expect Zach Ertz and the Eagles to part ways, and Goedert could quickly go from sharing reps at tight end to leading Philadelphia in targets. Jalen Hurts should provide an upgrade for the offense over Carson Wentz, who somehow led the NFL in sacks and picks last year despite playing only 12 games. Goedert is a good athlete about to see a big jump in volume in Year 4, so he’s someone to target at an ugly tight end position.NFL Washington Redskins (Football Team) Team Face Coverings

Philadelphia managed to work its way back into the game in the fourth quarter thanks in large part to its bench, which was led by Tyrese Maxey (15/1/2/1/1 with two 3-pointers) and George Hill (14/1/2 with three 3-pointers). Both played 22 minutes Monday night, with Maxey doing so after getting just 11 minutes of run in Game 3. Tobias Harris (21/13/5/0/1 with one 3-pointer) had a tough night shooting the ball, as he was just 8-of-24 from the field, so that percentage did fantasy players no favors. Ben Simmons (13/12/3/1) posted a double-double but his struggles from the foul line continue. After going 0-of-9 in the first three games, his 5-of-11 effort Monday night actually qualifies as an improvement. Look for Washington to once again employ the "hack-a-Shaq" strategy in Game 5.
