CFL’s opening weekend includes hit of the year, too

On Saturday night, Calgary receiver Juwan Brescacin gave the CFL an early candidate for catch of the year. That same night, on the other side of Alberta, a B.C. Lions defender gave the CFL an early candidate for hit of the year.

A fan ran onto the field during a first-quarter break in the action, and Lions defensive back Marcell Young made a devastating open-field flattening of the man.

The Yankees have won four straight and are 9-1 in their Harry Carson Jersey past 10 games. Their 20-9 road record is the best in the majors. They are 15-4 against lefty starters which is also tops in baseball. Eight of the Yankees’ past nine wins have been from behind.

Austin Romine fielded ground balls at third base during a mid-afternoon session at Citi Field on Saturday. The backup catcher took ground balls from Neil Walker, who has played first, second and third base this season.

Romine has caught 209 games in the big leagues and has played first in 20 games. He has been the DH nine times.

Was Romine preparing to be ready if called upon to play third?

Johnson has since retired, but seven receivers have signed contracts that average more than the $14.25 million Jones gets. Leading the way is Antonio Brown, who gets an average of $17 million per year.

That seems unlikely considering Jones is still one of the best receivers in the NFL, but more long-term security is likely a target for Jones.

To get his contract off the books the following offseason, the Texans essentially had to bribe the cap-rich Browns with a second-round draft pick (they also sent Cleveland a sixth-rounder but received a fourth-rounder), and they still paid Osweiler $9 million to play for another team in 2017.

Quarterback hunger makes teams do funny things.

That was okay — for a while. Tony Finau and Daniel Berger, who teed off in the morning, each shot a 4-under 66 Bobby Orr Youth Jersey to move up the leader board when the greens were still somewhat receptive. Then the winds came, making the already crusty greens into sheets of glass.
