Chrissy Teigen wants to own a team, so let’s figure out which one she should buy

After Derek Jeter reportedly sealed the deal to be a part-owner of the Miami Marlins on Friday, many people probably thought “hey that seems cool, I could definitely run a baseball team.” Chrissy Teigen, because she usually doesn’t think things without tweeting them (in a good way!), tweeted that she too would like to own a team.

A piece to help them win now and win later. Nightengale writes that the Cardinals aren’t really sure what they want to do at the deadline:

The St. Louis Cardinals, just like the Pirates, don’t necessarily want to surrender their playoff hopes. But they’re realistic. They are caught in no-man’s land. They’re really not in the NL Central race, but not out of it, either, simply loitering.

That means it’s not especially likely that they would want to deal Lynn — a pending free agent with a strong 3.40 ERA in his return from Tommy John surgery — for prospects and prospects alone. Every team can use more prospects, but I’m not sure if the Cardinals are interested in taking that kind of short-term hit.

Consider that the Cardinals have Luke Weaver currently demolishing Triple-A, with Marco Gonzales also doing well. And if they get in a real pickle, they can also move Tyler Lyons, overqualified long reliever, back to the rotation. The Cardinals have rotation depth, just like they always do.

The National League before this season, though, wasn’t so hard to predict. Slap the Dodgers in first in the NL West, the Cubs in first in the Central, and the Nationals Youth NFL Cheap Jerseys in USA Cheap Jerseys first in the East, and figure out the other dozen teams later. While I’m sure there have been three clear divisional favorites in a league before, the lack of ambiguity in these divisions seemed unusual.

Nike thinks Rob Gronkowski’s new logo looks like Michael Jordan’s Jumpman

Does a logo of New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski in silhouette spiking a football look too similar to Nike’s Air Jordan Jumpman logo?

“Earlier this month, the shoe and apparel giant filed a formal opposition to the USPTO Trial & Appeal Board, saying a logo of New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski in silhouette spiking a football could be confused with its Air Jordan Jumpman logo that it has used since November 1987… Gronkowski’s team has until Aug. 5 to respond or risk abandoning the filing. If nothing is resolved, the two sides will battle over the mark.”

Not only is the Tigers’ right-handed pitcher costly, he isn’t exactly enjoying a great season. After getting shelled by the Indians for seven earned runs in just 3 1/3 innings in his last start, Verlander is just 5-5 with an abysmal 4.96 ERA.

Verlander settled for second in last year’s AL Cy Young award voting, despite walking away with the most first-place votes. But he has looked like a completely different pitcher this season.

The Cubs have struggled to get through the early innings of games this season, often spotting teams a couple runs. It’s possible Chicago believes a fresh start in the National League would do Verlander some good.

Avila, on the other hand, is enjoying a great season. He USA Cheap Jerseys Pittsburgh Steelers Cheap Jerseys is batting .310 with 11 home runs and 29 RBIs while splitting time with James McCann.

Avila’s father, Al Avila, is currently the general manager of the Tigers, so it could be hard for the Cubs to acquire the veteran catcher. However, if the Cubs really want both players, they do have the young talent to entice the Tigers.
