With the win , Scherzer becomes just the sixth pitcher to win the award in both the NL and the AL. However, Porcello won 22 games this year to Verlander's 16, which was likely the deciding factor. "I'm not the one who made the decision", he said on a conference call. For those who feel that the wives and girlfriends of athletes are neutral about these awards , Upton proves otherwise.
Charlotte has won five straight over the Timberwolves , including two on the road. Former Hornet Jeremy Lin was unstoppable, and made Kyrie Irving look amateur during some of the games. Instead, coach Tyronn Lue played a wing-heavy lineup of Jordan McRae-Iman Shumpert-Richard Jefferson-LeBron James-Channing Frye ... for the entire quarter.
Newcastle have won 37, and Leeds 33. Since a dramatic last-gasp victory at home to Norwich, Rafa Benitez's boys have churned out a further seven straight victories across all competitions, a run of results that led the Spanish boss to receive October's manager-of-the-month award.
Urban Meyer still remembers the 2013 Big Ten title game and last year's upset in Columbus, so don't expect him to show any mercy for the Spartans. While many OSU fans were hoping for a MI win, finding an Ohio State player who would say that was a futile search at interviews on Monday.
He is nine shots ahead of McIlroy, who had something of a shocker. Sergio Garcia and Francesco Molinari shot matching scores of 5 under par 67 to share the halfway lead after the second round of the DP World Tour Championship. "I'm disappointed not to be playing", said Westwood. We could have scored better. Obviously when you're playing well, it's a little easier. We'll have the hilarious, full interview on our digital platforms on Saturday morning, but if you can't wait, go to the ...
Do you know the amount of screening we do here? It's been nothing short of lovely. Hall says he's enjoying his first visit to Ireland but his favourite fight venue is Japan and little wonder - that's where he stopped Mousasi in second round of their first meeting with a whirlwind spinning side-kick followed by a right knee to his head and an 11-second punching barrage.
Ohio State scored every time it touched the football on both offense and defense. So the Buckeyes hit reset. "The offensive line let me distribute the ball in the passing game, and in the running game, they were driving guys off the ball".
Scotland , bonded by steely organisation as well as pride, kept the game in the balance after falling behind to Daniel Sturridge's 24th minute opener but instead of equalising as they might have done immediately after the restart saw England score a second on the break through Adam Lallana.
If reports before the worldwide break were to be believed, Luke Shaw's days at Manchester United were numbered.

The Green Bay Packers visit the Washington Redskins at 7:30 p.m. Sunday on NBC. "I didn't see the press conference, but I heard about it", Manning said.

They will face the Washington Wizards (2-8), who are now on a three-game slide. NY rattled off a 15-2 run to cut the deficit from 22 to just nine points with two minutes remaining in the contest. Will the Knicks or Wizards cover the spread tonight with both teams playing at 7:00PM ET on no rest? We were trying to get the win last night. G Bradley Beal returned after missing three games with a right hamstring injury and had 18 points.
Earlier on Thursday, Wenger had said "you depend a lot on the honesty of a player" when deciding whether he can play. And he says he'll have to make a decision based on what Alexis says and what the assessment from the medical staff reveals.
It was another poor shooting night by the Gators, who shot 38% overall and got only 13 points combined from bigs Egbunu, Justin Leon and Kevarrius Hayes. And that's really what it's all about. "People just ask me, like my auntie called me this morning, and she was like, she was hearing some things". "We're ready for them to come out and see what they got".
Remember the old days when Larry Bird and Magic Johnson routinely took the night off three weeks into the season so they could properly maintain their bodies and get the proper amount of beauty sleep? Many will be looking at the game against the Indiana Pacers watching whether the decision to sit James in a crucial game is a good decision.
The pair played together for a few months at Liverpool during the 2008/09 season, and again at Galaxy over the past 18-months, and it's obvious Keane has a lot of respect for his former teammate. Following his exit from Major League Soccer side, LA Galaxy, Gerrard has multiple other offers to consider while he takes a little break and spends time with his family.
He's an example for all and I want him to continue that way. The Blues have made a bright start to the new campaign under new manager Antonio Conte and now sit second in the table, one point off leaders Liverpool, with 11 games played.
During the play where England was trying to win the match and India trying to draw the match , Virat Kohli has managed to retain his wit in the tense situation as the team England was pushing for a win.

Wenger, looking to secure a maiden league win over former Chelsea boss Mourinho in his 12th top-flight contest with his Portuguese rival, said Rashford's initial form had taken him slightly by surprise. England interim manager Gareth Southgate is believed to have been left disappointed by the striker's conduct and reports have emerged that Rooney could be stripped of the national team captaincy.
In fact they have lost seven out of the last nine matches , meaning they have only managed to draw two in the Premier League . "I have three , he has three or four", Mourinho told Friday's pre-match press conference. "Like against Middlesbrough. I still don't understand how we didn't win the game ". "Hard-fought but honest games and the respect is there between the two clubs and the two teams".
Selectors are yet to finalise their XI, with Marsh under intense pressure from South Australian batsman Callum Ferguson for his place in the team. "We rely quite heavily on being a resilient team, we're full of resilient players and personalities", du Plessis told reporters at Bellerive Oval.
Central. The Tigers have won 13 consecutive day games at Tiger Stadium since falling 31-13 to Ole Miss in a game that kicked off at 2:30 p.m. November 22, 2008. There were 46 fouls in the game and 34 turnovers, many of those traveling calls. This LSU offense MUST play well, and take advantage of the break that fate has given them softening up this almost impenetrable Gator defense.
Fort. Because this is a football team that doesn't do the little things well: From some of the younger receivers failing to run crisp routes and finish plays off, all the way up to a dynamic and established receiver like Antonio Brown quitting on the final play of the game, stepping out of bounds when all zeroes were on the clock and his team was down.
Neither totally commandeered their offenses like we've seen in recent games, and Westbrook's superior shooting game eventually helped his team win the game. It was the third straight home loss for the Thunder after a 6-1 start. But before OKC's victory back at the end of January, James Harden had been unstoppable against his former side, with the Rockets having won six on the bounce against the Thunder .

I don't think I have". Jose Holebas is suspended for this match after picking up his fifth booking of the season, which means Juan Zuniga could earn just his third start of the season, while Isaac Success, who has missed Watford's last three matches with injury should make the squad and Costel Pantilimon may be required between the sticks after Heurelho Gomes was forced off against Liverpool before the worldwide break with a knee injury.
Until now. They just slithered to a 3-5-1 record. The Giants defeated the Bengals 21-20. And before that a victory over Cleveland - but before that consecutive losses to Dallas and New England. The impressive numbers come during another huge season for Beckham, who has caught 54 passes for 773 yards and six touchdowns. "Well, I know this".
This will not only enhance the long-term growth prospects and improve sustainability for the combined company , but also make it easier for other players to enter and thrive in the market.

Through Nov. 18, the Lakers have won as many games (seven) as they achieved by January 1 a season ago. Just like it has been for almost a decade, the Spurs' Tony Parker (16 points, seven assists) and Manu Ginobili (10 points) remained too hard to stop.

Richard Sherman destroyed the Bills kicker tonight. Buffalo coach Rex Ryan was optimistic late in the week that all three would be able to play. "It was wrong", Ryan said. However, they did not flag Sherman for unnecessary roughness, which it clearly was. "I think I said, 'You're too good of a player to act like an ass.' I think that's what I said".
Neville, now assistant coach at Spanish club Valencia, believes United's good record against Arsenal will give them a psychological advantage while the London club's "lack of steel" on big occasions could secure all three points for Mourinho.
Mourinho branded Wenger a "specialist in failure" in the second of his two spells at Chelsea - one of numerous barbs he has launched at the Frenchman - and he revisited the theme ahead of their reunion. "I don't say a word about Chris Smalling ", Mourinho said sternly. Wenger was otherwise as respectful as possible of Mourinho , saying that he will shake his hand on Saturday , but that he has never been distracted by Mourinho's repeated personal criticism of him.
