The Yankees and Nationals will play another game later Monday to make up a May 16 rainout.
The finish of the suspended game led to some strange set of circumstances… such as Tyler Austin driving in all of the Yankees’ runs on May 15, then not being around for the conclusion because he’s been optioned to Triple-A.
Also, Masahiro Tanaka was on the mound for the Yankees for the start of the game and on the DL for the end.
Soto entered as a pinch-hitter for left fielder Matt Adams with a runner on first. Facing Green, he worked the count to 3-1 before crushing a middle-in, 97-mph fastball to right that cleared the Yankees bullpen and landed in the second deck before bouncing up and onto a concourse.
If an NFL team with a coaching vacancy in 2019 considers the collegiate route, expect Petersen to be on the short list.
Petersen wasn’t the only collegiate coach who received multiple votes from Jeremiah’s panel. Stanford’s David Shaw did as well.
The short answer—(Shaw) gets it, an exec said. He doesn’t just coach a team; he runs a program. He relates well and he has a solid scheme on both sides of the ball. He also has NFL coaching experience.
There’s been no indication that Lincoln Riley wants to leave the University of Oklahoma. After all, the 34-year-old has only been the Sooners head coach for one year.
But what a year it was.
After leading the Sooners to the College Football Playoff and helping to propel quarterback Baker Mayfield to the Heisman Trophy, NFL teams have taken notice of Riley’s offensive acumen.
ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit said 28, 29, 30 of the NFL’s 32 teams reached out to Riley at some point last season to pick his brain about the Sooners’ explosive offense, according to Jori Epstein of the Dallas Morning News.
It wouldn’t surprise me at all to see the NFL, within a few years, knock on his door and try to get him to leave, Herbstreit told Epstein. He’s as hot as he can be, as not just a head coach what he did with his first year but also as a playcaller.
