New Angels closer Cody Allen hopes he’s fixed what went wrong last year

TEMPE, Ariz. — Cody Allen has spent his first spring training with his new team trying to find himself again. Once one of baseball’s most consistent closers, Allen endured a frustrating season with the Cleveland Indians in 2018, on his way out of town as a free agent. The numbers – both the obvious and the subtle – painted a picture of a 30-year-old pitcher in decline. Throughout his first spring training with the Angels, though, Allen has been reassembling the pieces he believes will get him ba...

10 hours that changed the NFL: Inside the Odell Beckham Jr. trade

The Giants wanted two first-round picks for Beckham, but I believe Gettleman knew that bounty might be tough to get because Beckham had proven himself a difficult player to handle. The Browns discussed some other players. But Gettleman, smarting from the prospect of losing safety Landon Collins in free agency to Washington (still hard to fathom why the Giants didn't franchise their unquestioned defensive leader, Collins, at $11 million for 2019), had studied one Cleveland player he wanted: ...

Kline was recently cut by Tennessee; Schraeder, too, in Atlanta. Easton is the Vikings' own free agent. Those designations mean no signing...

Kansas City Star calls for Chiefs to cut Tyreek Hill, if allegations are true

The Chiefs moved swiftly in November to sever ties with running back Kareem Hunt, after a video debunked his claim to the team that he had no involvement in an altercation at a Cleveland hotel earlier that year. The Chiefs now have another situation with a star player, and the local newspaper has called for similar decisive action.
