Just five players in Major League Baseball history have thrown two no-hitters in a single season. Only 35 have thrown multiple in their careers. Maybe one day, White Sox pitcher Carlos Rodón will add his name to one or both of those lists, but that day was not on Sunday afternoon in Detroit.

Leonard dominated with his strength, toughness and athleticism. He scored 34 points on 14-of-24 shooting, with more than half of his buckets coming in the paint. He grabbed 12 rebounds, several of the go-up-and-get-it-in-traffic variety. He was the Clippers' most impactful defender, guarding Donovan Mitchell during much of the Jazz star's scoreless first quarter and wreaking havoc as a help defender on many occasions.
“James was better tonight as far as what he was able to do, but it’s tough,” Nets coach Steve Nash said. “He’s really limited. He can’t do a lot of things he’s accustomed to doing. … Tough, tough position for James to be out there trying his best, trying to help this team and not being able to move the way he normally would.”

You won't find many pass-catchers in the NFL with more strength than Metcalf. He's also pretty fast and is able to win contested catches in the air with relative ease.

Since June 5, when details emerged about how umpires would check pitchers for foreign substances, spin rates decreased throughout baseball. New York Yankees star Gerrit Cole, who stumbled over a question when asked if he used Spider Tack, saw his fastball spin rate decrease by 216 RPM on Wednesday night. Hitters, meanwhile, were slashing an improved .247/.319/.417 in a small sample size through June 13, though it should be noted that offense typically improves as temperatures increase.
Schoop has an expiring $4.5 million contract, which could make him even more attractive on the market. But he's not eager to join a contender.
"I think I alluded to it answering the question beforehand," Cole said. "Look, we're all just trying to play by the rules. Play by what the commissioner has handed out going forward.

Perhaps it was all the experience LA has, playing without the oft-load-managed or oft-injured Leonard, who has missed 36 games in his two seasons with the team. George has typically elevated his game when Leonard is out, averaging 25.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists, including an especially good run this past April when he averaged 29.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists in seven games while Leonard was out with right foot soreness.

Charles Clay didn’t play any football in 2020, but it appears the veteran tight end hasn’t given up hope of continuing his playing career.
Right now Kansas City has a plethora of stellar offensive lineman starting with a Pro Bowl Tackle in Orlando Brown Jr, All-Pro Guard Joe Thuney, guard Kyle Long, and right tackle Mike Remmers. One thing the Chiefs want is assurance that they have the right guys in the right places. One way to do that is to create competition. Austin Blythe was brought in on a one-year deal from the Rams right before Creed Humphrey fell into their lap in the second round of the draft. Everyone knows that competition brings the best out of players and every rookie needs a veteran to learn from. This Kansas City offensive line will have well rounded depth with all the veterans in the locker room, and that is exactly what Humphrey needs.Washington Football Team for Face Masks
