    Archbishop Spalding football’s players knew no one expected much of them after the Cavaliers graduated most of their starting roster, let alone that they’d surpass the glory of last year’s team. But five games and four wins into the season, no one could call what Spalding is doing a fluke. Call it magic. Even when Calvert Hall had momentum and a chance to take away Spalding’s lead Friday night, the Cavaliers didn’t buckle. Instead, they turned up the effort on both defense and offense and routed the defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champions on their own turf, 42-7, in the Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown. Sophomore quarterback Malik Washington wonders what it’ll take for folks to stop doubting Spalding. “I love it,” he said. “We were supposed to lose to Gonzaga. We were supposed to have a close game with Broadneck. We were supposed to lose to Imhotep. We were supposed to lose this game. … I think everybody takes that personally. They think we can’t do enough, and then we go show them what we can...
    Yadier Molina debuted a new catcher’s mask that commemorated his 325th start for the St. Louis Cardinals alongside pitcher Adam Wainwright. History is being made for the St. Louis Cardinals ever since they returned from the All-Star break. Albert Pujols’ surge post-Home Run Derby has got him close to 700 career home runs. But on Wednesday, Sept. 14, there was more history being made, as this was the 325th time that St. Louis’ battery of pitcher Adam Wainwright and catcher Yadier Molina started a game together. Prior to the game against the Milwaukee Brewers, Molina commemorated the occasion by debuting a new mask, which featured their images and the No. 325. ???? pic.twitter.com/J0sUdJbyUP — St. Louis Cardinals (@Cardinals) September 14, 2022 Yadier Molina commemorates 325th start with Adam Wainwright with catcher’s mask To start the game, Wainwright threw a pitch to Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich, which he did not swing at. Molina caught the ball, and threw it towards the Cardinals dugout, where it will no doubt be heading to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. Yeah that...
    Tony La Russa received clearance from his doctors to participate in Sunday’s ceremonies at Oakland Coliseum honoring his former pitcher Dave Stewart, the Chicago White Sox announced Saturday. But La Russa’s doctors have not yet cleared his return to the dugout as an active manager, the Sox said. La Russa will travel to Chicago with the team following Sunday’s game against the A’s, the Sox said. La Russa has been out since Aug. 30 when the team announced he would not manage less than an hour before the start of a game against the Kansas City Royals at the direction of his doctors. The next day, the Sox said La Russa was out indefinitely and he would undergo further testing with doctors in Arizona. La Russa is second all-time among major-league managers with 2,884 victories. The 2014 Hall of Fame inductee won World Series titles with the Oakland Athletics (1989) and St. Louis Cardinals (2006, 2011). He managed the Sox from 1979-86, followed by Oakland from ‘86-95 and the Cardinals from ‘96-2011. He returned to the Sox last season. The...
    St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina is approaching his final career game, and pitcher Adam Wainwright said an emotional goodbye. St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina is approaching his final career game, and pitcher Adam Wainwright said an emotional goodbye to the veteran player. Wainwright narrated a video and opened it with, “It’s hard to imagine Cardinals baseball without you.” He further stated that he “earned every bit” of his success and closed the video with, “Thanks for playing catch all these years.” We are ever so close to Yadier Molinas final career game.

    Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander had to do pushups for Matt Schneidman of The Athletic after the Syracuse Orange crushed his Louisville Cardinals in Saturday’s Week 1 game. Even though the Green Bay Packers are expected to win most of their games this season, star cornerback Jaire Alexander still had to do 20 pushups after losing a college football bet to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic. While many NFL fans know that Alexander used to star at Louisville, Schneidman’s alma mater is that of Syracuse University, a division rival of the Cardinals in the ACC Atlantic. After Louisville got “dog walked” by Syracuse to the tune of 31-7, Alexander was a man of his word. He dropped and gave Schneidman 20 immediately after Packers picture day. It wasn’t in the Cards for his school… While Alexander’s form is tremendous, his beloved Cardinals find themselves at a very rough 0-1. Jaire Alexander bet me 20 push-ups on Syracuse-Louisville last week. Syracuse dog walked them 31-7 on Saturday. Saw me on his way back in from Packers picture day and immediately dropped down. Man...
    St. Louis Cardinals legend Albert Pujols faced the Chicago Cubs for the final time in his career on Sunday, with his final swing fittingly winning the game.  Albert Pujols’ quest for 700 continued on Sunday in the final game he’ll ever play against the Cubs. Considering the fits he’s given Chicago over the years, it was only right for him to put an exclamation point on his career against them. Pujols came in as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning of a scoreless game. On his second swing, he blasted a 429-foot home run. He has just five to go.Albert Pujols’ final swing vs. the Cubs moved him closer to 700FIVE. TO. GO pic.twitter.com/xKUOuuIIUN — St. Louis Cardinals (@Cardinals) September 4, 2022 That’s what the Cubs get for having a lefty pitch to the lefty killer. Pujols needs one home run to tie Alex Rodriguez and step into fourth-place on the all-time home run charts. Four more after that will put him in the 700 Club alongside Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth. He remains fervent in...
    Willson Contreras dominated the headlines during the first four months of the Chicago Cubs season. Everyone wanted to know where Contreras would be sent before the Aug. 2 trade deadline, how he was handling the situation and how much of a haul the Cubs would get in return. For better or worse, it was Willson, Willson, Willson. Then came the shocking twist. Contreras remained with the Cubs after President Jed Hoyer couldn’t find a suitor he felt was offering enough value in return. The long goodbye turned into an awkward “never mind,” and Contreras has since been playing out the string in relative silence. Contreras was out of the starting lineup Saturday for the third straight game — an 8-4 Cubs loss — after exiting Tuesday’s game in Toronto with left ankle soreness. Manager David Ross said there was a chance Contreras could start Sunday when Marcus Stroman faces Miles Mikolas in the series finale. As a soon-to-be free agent, it’s in Contreras’ best interest to be healthy at season’s end, so taking a few days off to recover makes...
    There are few things in life more important to Chicago Cubs fans than beating the St. Louis Cardinals. But Cubs manager David Ross doesn’t share that feeling. “I don’t,” he said before Friday’s 8-0 loss to the Cardinals at Busch Stadium. “As a manager you want them all. I want to beat everybody the same.” You can’t blame him. At this point the Cubs are lucky to beat anyone. The Cubs fell to 56-76 with their sixth loss in eight games and are on pace to lose 93 games. Cardinals starter Jordan Montgomery (8-3) scattered seven hits over 6 ⅓ shutout innings, extending his scoreless streak against the Cubs this season to 22 ⅓ innings with the New York Yankees and Cardinals. Three of Montgomery’s eight wins have come against the Cubs. While with the Yankees, he also threw seven shutout innings in an 8-0 win June 11 in New York and a one-hit shutout for the Cardinals on Aug. 22 at Wrigley Field. The Cardinals improved to 11-6 against the Cubs, who have not won a season series in...
    The St. Louis Cardinals showed strong defense on Wednesday night that ultimately led to their victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The St. Louis Cardinals showed great defense on Wednesday night that led to their victory over the Cincinnati Reds. According to Katie Woo of The Athletic (subscription required but Woo shared in a Tweet), the Cardinals used a five-man infield strategy that they hadn’t practiced before but ended up saving them twice. The five-man infield isn’t a strategy the #STLCards  had practiced before. But it’s one that saved the game for them, twice, last night.

    St. Louis Cardinals veteran Albert Pujols just became even more respectable by selflessly giving a young fan the jersey off his back.

    Jordan Montgomery is everything the St. Louis Cardinals could have hoped for since arriving at the trade deadline. But pump the brakes on a contract extension. The St. Louis Cardinals were in need of a starting pitcher at the trade deadline. They were unable to land Frankie Montas, who went from the Oakland Athletics to the New York Yankees. But, an arm for the starting rotation arrived, as they acquired Jordan Montgomery from the Yankees in exchange for centerfielder Harrison Bader. Since arriving, Montgomery is everything the Cardinals could have hoped for. He holds an ERA well below 1.00 and is a perfect 4-0 since arriving. While it has been a steal for the Cardinals and is making the Yankees fanbase angry at general manager Brian Cashman, let’s pump the brakes on any contract extension talk.Cardinals: Pump the brakes on a Jordan Montgomery contract extensionEven though Montgomery has been one of the most impressive pitchers in the game since the trade deadline, there is still so much time remaining in the season.

    The Chicago Cubs plan to honor Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina on Thursday before their final game at Wrigley Field, a fitting farewell for a couple of retiring St. Louis Cardinals stars who spent much of their careers being booed on the North Side. Cardinals fans no doubt will be well-represented, and Cubs fans will curb their animosity for a few minutes to pay tribute to their longtime nemeses. Booing one or both remains optional once the game begins, as dictated by Wrigley Field etiquette concerning any member of the Cardinals who frequently destroys Cubs pitching. The Pujols farewell tour has been relatively low-key so far, as one might expect for a player who seldom called attention to himself during a legendary career. It has paled in comparison with the celebrations Derek Jeter and David Ortiz received in their final seasons, a shame for a player widely considered the greatest slugger of his generation. Pujols and Molina have been honored in nine ballparks, from Fenway Park to Coors Field, with gifts including checks to their foundations, scoreboard memorabilia, vacation stays...
    Getty The Arizona Cardinals cut six players to get their roster down to 80. The Arizona Cardinals are getting closer and closer to finalizing their roster. There are plenty of question marks along the way, although the majority of the roster has plenty of talent. There aren’t many jobs up for grabs, and the trade for offensive lineman Cody Ford should help the OL group up front. With the first roster cut deadline on Tuesday, NFL teams across the league released and waived several players to get closer to the magic number 53 by the time the regular season begins.The Cardinals Cut Six PlayersThe Cardinals cut a total of six players on Tuesday, and there are some surprising omissions on the roster.

    The St. Louis Cardinals begin a critical series with the Chicago Cubs tonight that will see the two play five games over four days.  While the Chicago Cubs have been doing well, so have the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals are on a seven-game winning streak and are now 69-51. The Cubs are in third place in the NL Central, 52-68 but have gone 7-3 over their last 10 games. While St. Louis has appeared to be a team on a mission over a couple of weeks, Chicago has been scrapping their way to become spoilers, taking two-of-three games from the struggling Milwaukee Brewers over the weekend. Both of these clubs have had some changes to their roster since they last met. This is still one of the biggest rivalries in baseball and should be a fun series between the two. Cards fans are hoping for success from the team’s old-man club of Adam Wainwright, Yadier Molina, and Albert Pujols. Pujols is attempting to reach the lofty goal of 700 home runs for his career and has had success at...
    Rookie tight end Isaiah Likely has added some intrigue and possibly a new dimension to the Ravens’ offense. The fourth-round pick from Coastal Carolina turned in a second strong performance in Baltimore’s 24-17 win against the Arizona Cardinals Sunday night with eight catches for 100 yards and a touchdown while playing only the first half. In two preseason contests, Likely has 12 catches for 144 yards, but maybe the most impressive part of his game is the yards he gets after the catch. He had 53 versus the Cardinals, which doesn’t happen often from a 6-foot-4, 235-pound receiver. “Everybody wants to be able to catch the ball, but it’s what you can do after that catch,” Likely said. “And that’s something I preach, whether it’s in games or in practice. Just really just getting that burst in practice [and] having that in-game feel, so when I get in the game, it’s not the first time that I’ve ever done it. It’s repetition, it’s consistency.” The Ravens have worked hard to modify and improve the offense, with emphasis on a two-tight...
    The Ravens, playing without quarterback Lamar Jackson and other key starters, extended their preseason winning streak to 22, led by another sterling performance from backup quarterback Tyler Huntley and a remarkable first half from rookie tight end Isaiah Likely. Here are five things we learned from Sunday night’s 24-17 victory: Good luck quieting the Isaiah Likely hype train after that performance. This Likely thing is getting out of hand. In three months, the rookie tight end has ascended from a fourth-round pick raising eyebrows in OTAs to the third most important pass catcher on the team behind Mark Andrews and Rashod Bateman. That might sound like hyperbole, but has any Raven made more thrilling plays this summer? On the Ravens’ first drive, Tyler Huntley was flushed from the pocket and rolling to his left when he found Likely moving forward to help him. Likely not only made a contested catch but he spun away from his defender and turned the play into a 20-yard gain. He did it again in the second quarter, catching a 5-yard pass, breaking a tackle...
    The St. Louis Cardinals acquired pitcher Jordan Montgomery at the trade deadline, and their decision has proven to be a good one. The St. Louis Cardinals acquired pitcher Jordan Montgomery at the trade deadline from the New York Yankees. Their decision has already paid off. Montgomery has started three games for the Cardinals, and he’s won every one. Over 16.2 innings pitched, he only allowed one run and three runs. He’s struck out 17. Over this season, he’s produced an ERA of 3.29, batting average against of .232 and WHIP of 1.07. This has been his best season so far. The Yankees have one of the best rotations in the league, and the Cardinals aren’t quite as fortunate.Yankees helped the Cardinals by trading them Jordan MontgomeryThe Yankees have some of the best pitchers in MLB.

    Cardinals legend Albert Pujols is still chasing the 700 home run mark and it’s starting to look more and more possible he’ll get there. Albert Pujols’ is already in rare company for dozens of achievements from his MLB career. There’s still one big club he’s hoping to join before his retirement though. Just three baseball players in history have surpassed 700 home runs in their career: Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth. To make that trio a quartet would be the ultimate accomplishment for Pujols. But could he actually do it with the clock ticking on his final season in MLB? On Sunday, Pujols made sure the world knows the race s on with two home runs against the Brewers. Pujols is going to be VERY close to 700 homers by the end of the year. #STLCards https://t.co/bZ3k3Fp9Pw — Call to the Pen (@CalltothePen) August 14, 2022 He now has 689 career HRs with 11 to go for 700.

    The St. Louis Cardinals seemingly stunned the New York Yankees with a dominant three-game sweep. The Cardinals looked like a revived and improved team in their sweep of the New York Yankees, 4-3 on Friday, 1-0 on Saturday, and 12-9 on Sunday. It’s safe to say most believed the three-game set between the Cardinals and Yankees would be exciting. Not many would have had the Cardinals showing out and taking charge of the series. But with a couple of steady players making their comebacks and a new pitcher eager to please in his debut, Cardinal fans got a pleasant surprise. Let’s look at three things we learned about the Cardinals from this sweep.3. Jordan Montgomery is an excellent addition to the rotation.Montgomery was the surprise of the trade deadline for the Yankees and the Cardinals.

    The Chicago Cubs are finally heading to London. They were initially scheduled to play the St. Louis Cardinals in London during the 2020 season before the pandemic canceled the series. Major League Baseball announced Thursday that the Cubs and Cardinals will play in the London Series on June 24-25, 2023, at London Stadium. “The MLB London Series between the Cubs and Cardinals has been in the works for years now and we’re thrilled to finally be able to bring one of baseball’s biggest rivalries to fans abroad in 2023,” Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts said in a statement. “We hope that this series not only excites and entertains but brings more international sports fans to the game we all love.” This marks the second time regular-season MLB games will be played in the British capital.

    Just a few minutes before the trade deadline, the Cardinals and Yankees have made a trade involving MLB players It was reported just a few minutes before the MLB Trade Deadline that the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Yankees have made a trade that involves major leaguers. The Cardinals have traded center fielder Harrison Bader and a player to be named later to the Yankees for left-handed starting pitcher Jordan Montgomery. MLB Trade Grades: Cardinals – BAs we mentioned in this article earlier on Tuesday, the St. Louis Cardinals desperately needed to address their starting rotation. José Quintana was a good start but they needed some more starting pitching depth. Miles Mikolas and Adam Wainwright were their only starters that have been good and healthy on the season. Dakota Hudson and Steven Matz both have been largely injured and have pitched below league average (Hudson has a 94 ERA+ and Matz has a 68 ERA+).

    The St. Louis Cardinals swung and missed in the Juan Soto sweepstakes and the team’s backup plan will likely flood the Mississippi River with tears. Juan Soto is on his way to San Diego after Padres GM A.J. Preller pulled off a blockbuster deal for the Washington Nationals’ All-Star outfielder. The Friars will now field a lineup featuring Soto, Fernando Tatis Jr., and Manny Machado. In return the Nats received a boatload of prospects plus left-hander MacKenzie Gore. It’s fair to say that both teams got what they wanted out of the deal. But while you might be able to call both the Padres and Nationals winners, the same cannot be said for the St. Louis Cardinals. Cardinals Juan Soto backup plan will flood the Mississippi River with tears.St. Louis was in trade discussions for Juan Soto up until the very end.

    The St. Louis Cardinals missed out in the Juan Soto sweepstakes because of one player. Juan Soto is heading from the Washington Nationals to the San Diego Padres without stopping to meet the St. Louis Cardinals along the way. One of the favorites to land Soto, there’s one big reason why St. Louis lost out in the sweepstakes. According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, Dylan Carlson is the reason. The #STLCards have yet to include Dylan Carlson in a multi-player offer for Juan Soto.

    The St. Louis Cardinals, San Diego Padres, and Washington Nationals are seemingly the only three teams that are still in for the Juan Soto sweepstakes. One of the trade packages is better than the others. It seems increasingly likely that the Washington Nationals will trade Juan Soto before Tuesday’s trade deadline. Now, they just have to see which trade package they like the most. According to Jim Bowden of The Athletic and CBS Sports, the St. Louis Cardinals, San Diego Padres, and the Washington Nationals are the three teams that are the finalists for Soto but it seems clear who the frontrunners are. According to Bowden, the Cardinals have offered a package that has more young, major league talent in it. The Padres have offered more prospects in their deal. The Dodgers seem to be in a clear third place. Now, the Nationals have to decide which deal they would prefer to go with but there should be a clear winner.The Cardinals have the better trade offer thus far for the Nationals to get Juan SotoWith prospects, they could be the...
    As one of the biggest names on the list of potential trades in Major League Baseball, Nationals star Juan Soto is still getting used to his name being thrown around in the media. Trade talks continue to circulate ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline as the Dominican Republic-born outfielder has rejected multiple offers to stay in the nation's capitol.  The 2022 Home Run Derby winner has received multiple contract extension proposals, with the most recent being a reported 15-year, $440million deal. That contract would have made Soto the highest paid player in baseball, overtaking the $426.5 million deal given to Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout.

    The St. Louis Cardinals and San Diego Padres both need Juan Soto … but the Padres have the edge. There are 29 teams that would love to trade for Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto but there are only a few teams that have the prospects that can get Soto. Two of them are the St. Louis Cardinals and the San Diego Padres. Both teams are seemingly finalists in the Juan Soto sweepstakes but the Padres have the edge over the Cardinals for a few reasons. The Padres have the edge over the Cardinals for Juan SotoThe San Diego Padres likely have the edge over the St. Louis Cardinals in the Juan Soto sweepstakes for a few reasons. First and foremost, the Cardinals have a lot of young outfielders. Tyler O’Neill, Harrison Bader, and Dylan Carlson have had down years and/or have had some injuries in 2022 but the Cardinals view those three are core pieces for their future. The Padres, meanwhile, do not have a great outfield. Wil Myers has been injured and has had a disappointing season. Trent Grisham...
    The St. Louis Cardinals weren’t involved in the Luis Castillo trade but they will be affected by it in their pursuit of other big deals. Luis Castillo was probably never going to end up pitching for the St. Louis Cardinals. Despite the Cardinals’ need for an arm like his and them having the firepower to get a deal done, the Cincinnati Reds probably wouldn’t have preferred to deal him within the division. Instead, Castillo ended up with the Seattle Mariners for a pretty nice haul. What does it mean for the Cardinals? Unfortunately, it could mean that to get the best starting pitchers available, St. Louis will have to empty the prospect tank.Cardinals will have to part with some very good players to majorly upgrade their rosterWhether it’s Frankie Montas or a blockbuster for Juan Soto, the Cardinals face a challenge before the trade deadline is over. They have five of the top 100 prospects in baseball. It took baseball’s No. 18 and 93 prospects and more for the Mariners to add Castillo. The price on the high-level available players...

There are some players that will soon be missing from the roster.The Cardinals are expected to be active at the trade deadline in an effort to improve for a final push towards the playoffs. The team could end up looking dramatically different in the effort. While pitching is the biggest need the Cardinals have heading toward the deadline, the Cardinals have been connected to some big names including the biggest fish of them all this deadline in Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto. While Soto isn’t a pitcher, Soto would be a huge get for the Cardinals. The Nationals are reportedly willing to throw in pitcher Patrick Corbin. So there is that. With names like Pablo Lopez, Tarik Skubol, and...
    A TV sports host made an embarrassing porn gaffe live on air - sending his co-presenter into a fit of giggles. Al Hrabosky was covering Cincinnati Reds' 6-3 win over St Louis Cardinals in the MLB for Bally Sports alongside Alexa Datt. 4Al Hrabosky accidentally referred to a porn star instead of a film characterCredit: https://twitter.com/hochman 4He got mixed up between Ron Burgundy and Ron Jeremy 4St Louis Cardinals pitcher Miles Mikolas certainly catches the eyeCredit: AP But he accidentally got mixed up when commenting on Cardinals pitcher Miles Mikolas' statement outfit with sunglasses and a cowboy hat complete with his moustache. Hrabosky tried to compare the look to that of Ron Burgundy, Will Ferrell's character in the 2004 comedy Anchorman. Datt responded by suggesting Mikolas actually looked more like Champ Kind, played by David Koechner in the movie. However, ex-baseball star Hrabosky then got his surnames in a muddle. Cardinals analyst Al Hrabosky is the latest to confuse Ron Burgundy with Ron Jeremy. "Who was it that wore the cowboy hat with Ron Jeremy?" Bally Sports Alexa...
    Getty SEATTLE, WASHINGTON - OCTOBER 25: Christian Ringo #70 of the New Orleans Saints looks on before the game against the Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field on October 25, 2021 in Seattle, Washington. (Photo by Steph Chambers/Getty Images) The Arizona Cardinals were far from done when it came to free agent signings this offseason. In their most recent move, they officially signed two defensive linemen. They were able to get former Packers defensive tackle Christian Ringo and former Colts defensive tackle Antwaun Woods. To make these signings the Cardinals had to release tight end David Wells and defensive lineman Matt Dickerson. At the moment Ringo and Woods are seen to add to the depth of the Cardinals’ defensive line that was ranked 27 out of 32 by Pro Football Focus. Although the future Hall of Famer J.J. Watt is still in the fold entering his 12th season and second in Arizona there aren’t many strengths past that. 2021 was a down year for Watt who recorded the third lowest total tackles in his career at 16, so he...

(Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images) The St. Louis Cardinals can pillage the Tigers’ roster at the MLB Trade Deadline, as Detroit is reportedly ready to sell almost anyone for the right price. On Tuesday afternoon, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic unleashed one amazing breaking news tidbit: The Tigers are willing to trade nearly anyone, including young Ace Tarik Skubal. The St. Louis Cardinals are competing for the NL Central crown against the Milwaukee Brewers while trying to push further in for a World Series. Winning the World Series in what could be the final MLB season for Adam Wainwright, Albert Pujols, and Yadier Molina would be beyond spectacular for the legendary franchise. In order to do that, the Cardinals have to fix multiple needs at the trade deadline, including in the outfield, starting pitcher, bullpen, and catcher. With the Tigers making multiple impact players available, the Cardinals could improve their team...
    Breaking down the latest MLB trade rumors FanSided MLB insider Robert Murray is hearing around the league leading up to the MLB trade deadline. The question has come up with countless executives, agents and players in recent days: will Juan Soto be traded? A week before the trade deadline, no one has a good answer to that question. There are some people who believe that Soto will stay put, citing the massive asking price (top prospects and controllable major-leaguers) and the sheer magnitude of such a deal. There are others who believe that the Nationals will trade him before Aug. 2, citing that an eventual new ownership may not want its first move to be trading Soto. There are plenty of teams who would love to add Soto. The Padres are viewed as among the favorites by rival executives. The Cardinals have the prospects to facilitate a deal, but will a front office that has meticulously built the farm system blow it up to add the 23-year-old superstar? The Mariners are viewed as a potential sleeper while the New York...
