New York Gaints New Head Coach

The New York Giants have signed the Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator, Pat Shurmur to become their new head coach. He’s done a great job with journeyman quarterback Case Keenum this season and its paid off in a big way with a head coaching gig in the big apple (well technically New Jersey but work with me here). He’ll officially sign after the Vikings season is over.

Dick Enberg Passes Away

Long time and legendary sports commentator Dick Enberg has passed away at the age of 82. He’s called practically every major sport out there in including UCLA basketball, LA Rams football, Angels and Padres baseball, tennis and many many others. He will be greatly missed by me and his colleagues. Very surprising news as he was doing a weekly podcast and tweeting everyday as if his retirement and health were in good shape.

Longoria Goes From One Bay To Another

The San Francisco Giants have acquired three-time American League all-star Evan Longoria from the Tampa Bay Rays. The Giants are sending their number one ranked prospect, shortstop Christian Arroyo along with veteran outfielder Denard Span and two other minor league prospects.

Longoria hit .261 with 20 home runs and 86 RBI. Not only is he a good hitter, he won his third hold glove last season. Giants are filling a big hole at third base with this acquisition and are definitely not done making moves i would think.

Manchester Derby

Another Manchester Derby is in the books and the “Citizens” come out on top 2-1. David Silva started the scoring with a goal in the 43′, but in stoppage time before the half, Manchester United tied it up all thanks to their young star striker, Marcus Rashford. Just 10 minutes into the second half, City’s Kevin De Bruyne’s free kick was terribly cleared by Utd’s Romelu Lukaku in the box which bounced off a player right to Nicolas Otemendi’s foot and then to the back of the net. In the 85′ City’s goalkeeper, Ederson came up with the biggest save of the game but it came at a cost. Lukaku’s attempt hit Ederson square in the neck and he was down for a little while but stayed in the game. City is on a tear, breaking a Premier league record with their 14th straight victory.
