The Draft


One wants out, the second is leaving, and the third could be shown the door. How different could the NFL look with three starting quarterbacks in new places?

Making Headlines

Baseball: Former Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka announced he will return to Japan to play for Rakuten of the Nippon Professional Baseball League. Elsewhere: the Brewers’ Sara Goodrum was named the first female minor-league hitting coordinator.

NFL: The Texans are expected to name Ravens assistant David Culley as their next head coach.

NHL: Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard announced his retirement. Also: the Blackhawks agreed to terms with defenseman Madison Bowey on a two-year contract.

Tonight’s Action

The NHL will have a 14-game slate for the first time in almost a year. The headliner is a showdown between Sidney Crosby and the Penguins (4-2-1) against Brad Marchand and the Bruins (4-1-1) in Boston. 

Watch: 7 p.m. ET, ESPN+

Odds: Bruins -125/Penguins +112  ||  O/U 5.5

Pick: Grab the Penguins and the positive juice; lean under. The Bruins won 3-2 in overtime when the teams met Tuesday night. Expect more of the same but a bounce back for Pittsburgh.

Shoutout: Last night, Garrett Doiron predicted a 76ers win, 108-107. He missed by exactly one point on either side (107-106). Congrats! Maybe you should consider playing the lottery.
