    Armadillo: Monday's six-pack

    NBA Finals odds:

    Warriors in 4: 5-1

    Warriors in 5: 7-2

    Warriors in 6: +275

    Warriors in 7: 5-1

    Raptors in 4: 25-1

    Raptors in 5: 10-1

    Raptors in 6: 12-1

    Raptors in 7: 6-1


    **********

    Armadillo: Monday's List of 13: Wrapping up a sports weekend…….

    13) We need to recognize more people who do good stuff in their free time. Toronto Raptors’ Marc Gasol spent his offseason last year volunteering on a boat in the Mediterranean Sea with a mission to rescue and assist migrants and recover the bodies of those lost at sea.

    12) Twins 7, White Sox 0— In their last 20 games, Minnesota has scored 149 runs, an average of 7.45 runs per game. Over is 7-4 in their last 11 games.

    11) Braves 4, Cardinals 3 (10)— St Louis led 3-0 in 9th inning, blew the lead and lost for the 16th time in their last 22 games. Atlanta scored the winning run on a bases loaded walk.

    Coming into the game, major league teams were 423-2 this season when leading by 3+ runs after eight innings. Now they’re 423-3.

    10) Bullpens have become so hit/miss lately; lot of bettors are leaning towards betting on first five inning results, rather than nine-inning results. Keeps the starting pitcher as the essential piece of the equation.

    9) Mets 4, Tigers 3— Mets split their last dozen games; this was their only win by a starting pitcher in that span. Hechevarria homered to the opposite field for the winning homer.

    8) Baltimore Ravens will be using a completely new offense in 2019, but no one told the team’s QB, Lamar Jackson. Odd way to do business.

    7) College basketball transfer portal:
    — Joel Ntambwe bolts from UNLV to Texas Tech.

    Texas Tech is coached by Chris Beard, who was UNLV’s coach for three weeks in March 2016, before jumping to the Red Raiders. This should make him even more popular in Las Vegas.

    6) NBA Finals start Thursday in Toronto:
    — Home team has gone 19-3 SU in Game 1 of the last 22 NBA Finals.
    — Last 22 years, under is 14-7-1 in Game 1 of the Finals.
    — Raptors are 8-2 SU, 7-3 ATS at home in this year’s playoffs.
    — Warriors are 6-2 SU, 4-4 ATS on the road in the playoffs.

    Golden State is -$285 to win the series.

    5) Since 2000, most games a major league team has won without making the playoffs is 93:
    — 2002 Mariners
    — 2002 Red Sox
    — 2003 Mariners

    — 2005 Indians

    4) One thing you hear baseball people say a lot: You have to have good up-the-middle defense. Apparently, baseball people in Detroit don’t say that a lot.

    Detroit Tigers are playing JaCoby Jones in CF; he’s not good. He went 6-13 this weekend to get his batting average over .200. He looks very shaky in the outfield; not really sure what Detroit sees in him.

    Niko Goodrum started all three games of the Tigers’ series at Citi Field this weekend, but he started at three different positions. Detroit has sketchy defense in part because they jerk around their players around so much, and in part because their players just aren’t very good.

    3) Baseball stuff:
    — Pirates put D Francisco Cervelli on the 7-day concussion IL.
    — Padres scratched Chris Paddack from his start Sunday (stiff neck)
    — Astros’ 2B Aledmys Diaz (hamstring) left Sunday’s game early.
    — Tampa Bay moved P Tyler Glasnow to the 60-day IL.
    — Orioles put 1B Chris Davis (hip) on the IL.

    2) Get well soon to Cleveland Cavaliers’ owner Dan Gilbert, who was hospitalized Sunday after experiencing stroke-like symptoms.

    1) RIP Bart Starr, 85, who passed away this weekend; Starr led the Packers to five NFL titles, including wins in the first two Super Bowls.

    Starr played college ball at Alabama; he was drafted by Green Bay in the 17th round of the 1956 draft. He also coached the Packers from 1975-83.

    Tuesday’s 6-pack

    Updated odds for US Open golf tournament:

    6-1- Brooks Koepka

    7-1- Dustin Johnson

    12-1- Eldrick Woods

    14-1- Rory McIlroy

    16-1- Justin Rose, Jordan Spieth

    20-1- Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler

    Tweet of the Day
    “It would be nice to have another starter that we can run out there. Not to say that [Steven] Brault and Rookie [Davis] — I heard [Mitch] Keller’s coming up — can’t do it. But if you look at the staffs around the league and the division we’re in, it’s tough. We have to be running out the best thing we have every night. That’s what we’re trying to do right now.”
    Pirates pitcher Joe Musgrove

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Jacob deGrom is a really good pitcher; what is the Mets’ record in his last 40 starts?

    Monday’s quiz
    Steve Kerr played his college basketball at Arizona.

    Sunday’s quiz
    Michael Jordan was the 3rd pick in the 1984 NBA Draft; Hakeem Olajuwon was the first pick. Sam Bowie was the second pick.

    ****************************

    Tuesday’s List of 13: Nobody asked me, but……

    13) General observation from watching hours and hours of baseball; older umpires call more strikes than younger umps. No data to support this, but just get the feeling from watching so many games than older guys give more corners.

    12) It still baffles me why major league baseball blacks out games; do they want the game to get more exposure, so younger people will like it the way we do?

    Dodger games are blacked out in Las Vegas, which is three hours from Los Angeles. To paraphrase my high school chemistry teacher, “……this is nonsensical.”

    You could have hundreds of people in casinos all over Las Vegas watching baseball, rooting for baseball players, talking/caring about baseball, but they black out the games. Why?!?!?!?!?

    11) Baseball is hard; long season, 162 games in 182 days.
    — Sunday, Trevor Story was 0-5 with five strikeouts.
    — Monday, Javier Baez was 0-5 with five strikeouts.

    Both these guys are really good players. Thats why you hear people say that you have to keep an even keel over the course of a long season. There will be bad days.

    10) Rays 8, Blue Jays 3— Tampa Bay starter Yonny Chirinos didn’t allow a hit for five innings, but was taken out after throwing 69 pitches, with a 4-0 lead. Interesting decision.

    9) Brewers 5, Twins 4— Twins scored first in 36 of their 53 games; they’re 30-6 in the games where they scored first. Minnesota still leads the AL Central by 10.5 games.

    8) WHIP is a pitcher’s stat; walks and hits allowed divided by innings pitched- it measures how many baserunners a pitcher allows. Seems strange to me that if a pitcher hits a batter with a pitch, it doesn’t count against his WHIP. Shouldn’t it count the same as a walk?

    7) Baseball stuff:
    — Colorado put OF Charlie Blackmon (calf) on IL.
    — Astros put 2B Aledmys Diaz (hamstring) on IL.
    — Arizona put P Luke Weaver (forearm) on IL.

    6) David Price will start Tuesday’s game vs Cleveland; he left his last start in Houston after 15 pitches because of flu-like symptoms.

    5) World Series of Poker starts this week in Las Vegas; this is the 50th WSOP. Would be nice if they made online poker legal again, so ESPN would show more of the WSOP replays and less of their hideous talkshows that pollute the airways on weekdays.

    I enjoyed watching poker re-runs; seeing the hole card cam and watching how people reacted to bad beats. Was unscripted and fun to watch, unless the horrendous talk TV they have on now.

    4) College basketball transfer portal:
    — TCU poaches George Mason grad transfer Jaire Grayer
    — Arkansas poaches SMU grad transfer Jimmy Whitt.

    3) A’s 8, Angels 5— Oakland won its 10th game in a row, their longest win streak in 13 years.

    2) Monday’s game between the White Sox and Royals was suspended with two outs in the bottom of the 5th inning, tied 1-1. The game will be resumed before tomorrow’s regularly-scheduled game.

    1) RIP to Bill Buckner, who passed away at age 69; he hit .289 over a 22-year career that saw him get 2,715 hits. Twice led the league in doubles; won NL batting title in 1980.

    Klay Thompson adds meditation to his mental preparation
    May 28, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Klay Thompson craved a little calm.

    The Golden State guard needed something more to balance out his basketball routine, so he added meditation to help him get centered before games and better deal with the pressures of NBA life. Flip on some classical music or nature sounds and he's ready to relax his mind.

    It takes consistent practice, just like that pretty jumper.

    ''I try to go 30 minutes,'' said Thompson, who is joined for some sessions by bulldog bestie, Rocco. ''It's hard. It's very hard. An hour would be nice, but you've got to work up to that.''

    Thompson is in a good place right now, going to a fifth straight NBA Finals and chasing a three-peat with the Golden State Warriors.

    Two-time reigning Finals MVP Kevin Durant sat out injured for the entire Western Conference finals, leaving Thompson and Splash Brother Stephen Curry to take on an even greater load on both ends.

    Thompson heads into Game 1 at Toronto on Thursday night averaging 19.1 points these playoffs, having scored 22.6 points per game in the five contests without Durant.

    Mental preparation off the court is a major reason Thompson no longer lets things fester or bring him down, such as a tough loss or bad outing. He has said that earlier in his career it was hard to let go after games.

    Now, he instead shrugs off a poor shooting performance with the simple notion of, ''That's the way the basketball gods can be.'' Then, it's back to work.

    Left off the All-NBA team? ''Oh, I didn't?'' he replied when told he hadn't made the cut.

    Thompson did allow himself a little eye roll in disbelief, before adding: ''It is what it is. I can't control it. Do I think there's that many guards better than me in the league? No, but that's the reason why we're still playing. So, I don't even want to get into it, honestly.''

    The more media shy, under-the-radar of Golden State's sensational backcourt - Curry is a two-time MVP - a slumping Thompson once held his hand up near his face and uttered ''I missed you'' when he finally got on a roll again at Portland on Dec. 29.

    He credits meditation in part for how far he has come in handling everything as he wraps up his eighth NBA season.

    Thompson added meditation and visualization into his routine the last couple of years. This is the typically stoic guard who plunged into the Pacific Ocean in Southern California before Game 4 of the first round against the Clippers following a performance that wasn't up to his ''standards.'' He went out and scored 32 after that with six 3-pointers, hitting his first seven shots.

    ''The mind's so powerful. Just try to train the mind to deal with adversity in situations that are unpleasant but make you better in the long run, that's what I try to do,'' Thompson said when asked how he got involved meditation. ''Just a lot of reading on the internet and learning from coach (Steve) Kerr. Learned from Tony Robbins, too. It was cool talking to him last year. He had a great outlook on things. Just from veteran players. David West taught me a lot about that side of the game, the mental part.''

    Teammate Shaun Livingston can picture Thompson in a moment of complete serenity and peace - ''100 percent, nothing would surprise me.''

    Dr. Michael Gervais, a high-performance psychologist who has worked closely with the Seattle Seahawks, NBA players, USA Volleyball and other Olympic athletes, applauds Thompson taking up meditation on his own.

    ''So often we hold up world-leading athletes on a pedestal for their physical abilities, missing the deeper and extraordinary commitment they make toward pursuing their potential,'' Gervais said. ''There are only three things we can train as humans: our craft, our bodies, and our mind. World-class athletes don't leave any of those up to chance - why should the rest of us?''

    When he had a couple of days off after the Warriors wrapped up the Western Conference finals, Thompson noted, ''I wish it was sunny'' before adding, ''A little overcast, but it's all good.''

    Sure is.

    Thompson found out in April he will have his college jersey retired by Washington State, too.

    ''Klay is always someone who everybody sort of marvels at his life, the simplicity of his life. He just needs a basketball and his dog, and that's it. And we all laugh about it,'' Kerr said. ''But Klay is a lot deeper than people realize, so it doesn't surprise me that he's meditating and he's found ways to calm himself before games and keep himself going during the season.''

    The 29-year-old Thompson takes time the night before a game to think ahead. It doesn't matter if he's in the driveway or hanging out in his backyard with beloved Rocco - ''just random,'' he said.

    Sometimes he envisions each shot from a given spot on the floor that could present itself over the course of a game.

    ''Andre Iguodala told me that Tiger Woods visualizes every single shot he shoots on 18 holes on the golf course, so if he can do that, that's incredible,'' Thompson said. ''That's so many golf swings. I try to do the same approach to basketball. I just try to visualize, get in my spots, what my opponent is going to do. Yeah, so when you come to the game, you've kind of seen it before.''

    He might go with some Mozart or Beethoven.

    ''Try to put on classical Pandora or some nature sounds. Can't listen to rap or hip-hop when I do it because then I just get distracted. Something pleasant in the background, it's nice,'' Thompson explained. ''It's a challenge. It's much harder than working out. Especially for me, I've got like my mind racing. So it's a good practice for me.''

    Kerr considers Thompson one of the most down-to-earth NBA superstars.

    ''He's a dream to coach. He's zero maintenance,'' Kerr said. ''But he'll surprise you with his depth. You may not think there's a whole lot there, but there's plenty there, he just sort of doesn't let you in on it very often.''

    Thompson knows it's not a perfect science to get his shot back on track after a poor outing. The meditation provides a focus.

    ''I still will have bad days once in a while, but that's just being human,'' Thompson said. ''It's something I've incorporated in my routine for at least the past season, especially when I was going through that shooting slump. That really helped me. It's just nice to manifest things. Kind of like speak into existence, just kind of think it into existence.''

    Jones scores 25, leads Sun past Fever
    May 28, 2019
    ShareFacebookTwitterDiggMySpace


    UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) Jonquel Jones scored 25 points and Jasmine Thomas added 16 to help the Connecticut Sun beat the Indiana Fever 88-77 on Tuesday night.

    Jones scored 14 first-half points to help the Sun build a 40-37 lead at the break. Connecticut opened the third on a 19-9 spurt to take the first double-digit advantage and led 62-52 at the end of the quarter.

    Courtney Williams added 13 points and Alyssa Thomas grabbed 10 rebounds for Connecticut (2-0), which has won nine straight home games dating to last season. Jones made four of the Sun's 10 3-pointers.

    Erica Wheeler had 26 points and nine assists and Candice Dupree added 20 points, eight rebounds and five assists for Indiana (1-1), which hasn't won back-to-back games to start a season since 2012. In the Fever's season opener, rookie Teaira McCowan hit her first game-winning shot at any level against New York.

    13) 5-star Class of 2019 basketball recruit RJ Hampton announced Tuesday that he will skip college and will play professionally in Australia/New Zealand this season to prep for the 2020 NBA Draft. He reclassified from the ’20 class to 2019 earlier this spring with an eye on becoming eligible for the 2020 draft.

    So this is a 6-5 guard who is supposed to be in a senior in high school, but who will travel all the way to Australia and play pro ball this season, then go to the NBA Draft when he could’ve been a freshman in college, in the 2020-21 season.

    It is a free country, but sometimes you wish parents would let their kids be kids. It’ll be interesting to see how this works out, and if others follow his path.

    12) Here are some guys who shunned college for playing overseas:

    — Brandon Jennings has scored 7,801 points in nine seasons (14.1 ppg); he was a double-figure scorer and starter for the first six years of his career, and has earned around $41M total.

    — Emmanuel Mudiay has scored 2,901 points in four NBA seasons, including 14.8 points per game for the Knicks; he’s earned around $14M so far.

    — Three years ago, Terrance Ferguson skipped college to play pro ball in Australia; he’s played the last couple years for Oklahoma City, scoring 5.2 ppg in 20 mpg over 135 games, earning $3.9M for those two seasons.

    — Jeremy Tyler played overseas in 2010, then scored 3.6 ppg in 9.9 mpg in 103 NBA games in three seasons. He still plays ball overseas; he made $2,396,488 in the NBA.

    11) Yesterday, on the same day Bill Buckner passed away, the Twins called up a rookie pitcher named Devin Smeltzer, who then called one of his old coaches, former big league pitcher Woody Williams, to tell him the good news.

    Back in 1993, when Williams got called up to the majors for the first time by Toronto. he was told by an instructor in the Blue Jays’ organization. A guy named Bill Buckner.

    10) Hitters who have come up with most men on base this season:
    — Marcell Ozuna, StL- 173
    — Xander Bogaerts, Bos- 171
    — Rhys Hoskins, Phil- 161

    9) Hitters who have knocked in highest %age of runners from 3rd base (minimum of 10 runners on 3rd base):
    — Gio Urschela, NYY- 10-14 (71.4%)
    — Eric Hosmer, SD— 8-12 (66.7%)
    — Max Kepler, Minn- 10-16 (62.5%)

    8) Hitters who have knocked in lowest %age of runners from 3rd base (minimum of 10 runners on 3rd base):
    — John Hicks/Francisco Cervelli- 1-16 (6.25%)
    — Martin Maldonado, KC- 1-14 (7.1%)
    — Randal Grichuk, Tor- 2-19 (10.5%)

    7) College basketball transfer portal:
    — Joey Hauser jumps from Marquette to Michigan State.
    — Sam Hauser jumps from Marquette to Virginia.

    6) Baseball stuff:
    — Tigers put 2B Josh Harrison (hamstring) on IL.
    — Angels put 3B Zach Cosart (shoulder) on IL.
    — Twins put P Michael Pineda (knee) on IL.

    5) Phillies’ OF Odubel Herrera was placed on administrative leave by MLB after he was arrested on a domestic violence charge in Atlantic City Monday.

    Very unusual for teams not to play on Memorial Day; I’m guessing Herrera wishes the Phillies had a game yesterday. This will wind up as a very expensive visit to Atlantic City.

    4) When major league teams come to New York City, they get to explore a little, whether it be at MLB Network, or the Topps baseball card HQ, or other media outlets.

    Bob Scanlan, a Padres broadcaster, posted a baseball card of a young Tony Gwynn playing for San Diego, but wearing number 53, not number 19. Looked like a spring training game.

    3) Joe Gibbs got elected to the NASCAR Hall of Fame last week; he is already in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, so that puts him in a unique place in sports history.

    Gibbs won three Super Bowl titles with the Redskins, with three different QB’s.

    2) Two TV series I wish hadn’t ended:
    — Without a Trace was a show about finding missing people; Anthony LaPaglia played Jack Malone, a sarcastic FBI agent who led the unit, but who also had problems of his own. Just an excellent show; it still re-runs late night on cable.

    — In Plain Sight used to be on USA Network; this show was about people re-located in the Witness Protection Program. They had some really good stories, there was a good mix of drama with some humor added in, but the show’s star got a better offer to be in a show on network TV, so she quit and the show ended. Too bad.

    1) Speaking of late night TV, I see those Peloton exercise bike commercials and I want to trade my exercise bike in for one of those, since everyone on their commercials looks like an Olympic athlete. No overweight, bald people ride a Peloton; you think it would help? Nah, me either.

    Sims and Fowles help Lynx beat Storm
    May 29, 2019
    ShareFacebookTwitterDiggMySpace


    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Odyssey Sims had 15 points, Sylvia Fowles grabbed 13 rebounds and the Minnesota Lynx beat the defending champion Seattle Storm 72-61 on Wednesday night.

    The teams have combined to win six of the last nine WNBA titles, but the marquee matchup a season ago looked much different without stars Maya Moore, Lindsay Whalen, Sue Bird and Breanna Stewart on the court.

    Minnesota jumped out to a 22-9 lead at the end of the first quarter as Seattle was just 4 of 16 from the field. The Lynx led by 15 points at the half after holding Seattle to 31-percent shooting and Sims made it 44-24 early in the third.

    Damiris Dantas added 12 points for Minnesota (2-0). Napheesa Collier, who scored the second-most points in a rookie debut last week, scored nine points in 25 minutes.

    Natasha Howard, who had 21 points and a career-high 16 rebounds in Seattle's opener, scored 18 points for the Storm (1-1). Jewell Loyd added 13 points for Seattle, which started a three-game road swing over a four-day span.

    Last season, Seattle snapped a 16-game road-losing streak in the series.

    Quote of the Day
    “Courage is not the absence of fear, but the capacity to act despite our fears.”
    John McCain

    Thursday’s quiz
    Which state is known as the Granite State?

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Doug Williams, Mark Rypien, Joe Theismann won Super Bowls playing for Joe Gibbs.

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Jacob deGrom is a really good pitcher, but the Mets are 16-25 in his last 41 starts.


    ***************************


    Thursday’s List of 13: Doing some thinking out loud……

    13) One important thing in baseball now is for your starting pitchers to go deeper into games, to take stress off your bullpen. Over the course of a 162-game schedule, you can wear out your bullpen if they get used too much— after all, the starting pitchers are the better pitchers.

    So far this season, Angels have only had 10 games where their starter went 6+ innings, but they use the opener a decent amount. John Means lasted six innings Wednesday; it was only the 11th game that Baltimore’s starters lasted 6+ innings

    12) Pirates 7, Reds 2— These teams don’t like each other; since 2014, 72 Pirates have been hit by Cincinnati pitchers, 64 Reds have been hit by Pittsburgh hurlers. Six players were hit in the 5-4 Pirates’ win Wednesday.

    Eugenio Suarez got drilled on the hand in 8th inning; x-rays came back negative, but Suarez had some words for pitcher Clay Holmes on his way to first base.

    11) Cubs starting pitchers gave up 6+ runs four games in a row Saturday-Tuesday, first time they’ve done that since August of 2006.

    10) Foul poles at Safeco Field in Seattle are 92 feet high. In case you were wondering.

    9) Toronto will host a college basketball tripleheader Nov 16;
    — Tennessee-Washington
    — Buffalo-Harvard
    — Rutgers-St Bonaventure

    8) College basketball transfer portal:
    — Coppin State transfer Justin Steers bolts to Rider.

    7) Baseball stuff:
    — Astros put SS Carlos Correa (broken rib) on IL.

    6) Houston now has Altuve, Springer, Correa, Diaz all on the IL. Tough times for their training staff. Correa got hurt during a home massage; he broke a rib getting massaged.

    5) Top five starting pitchers, if you bet on all their starts:
    1. Lucas Giolito CWS (8-2) +$855
    2. Clayton Kershaw LA (8-0) +$800
    3. Jordan Lyles Pitt (8-2) +$777
    4. Matt Shoemaker Tor (5-0) +$673
    5. Jose Berrios Minn (9-2) +$671

    4) Seven of Notre Dame’s football opponents this fall have a bye week the week before they play the Fighting Irish, first time that has happened to anyone in the last 30 years.

    3) Former Bengals’ coach Marvin Lewis has joined Arizona State’s football staff as a special advisor to head coach Herm Edwards. Too bad; Lewis was good on TV doing AAF games and would’ve been a solid TV analyst for NFL games.

    2) Blue Jays’ CF Jonathan Davis made one of the best catches you’ll ever see to end the first inning in Tampa Bay last night- it saved two runs, cost Avisail Garcia two RBI.

    1) Random thing I learned today: singer Ariana Grande is allergic to tomatoes- she cancelled two shows after having an allergic reaction this week. No pizza for her.
