Ricky Nolasco not avaliable according to Marlins

Despite rumors that Ricky Nolasco wanted out of Miami, the Marlins do not seem likely to move the veteran right-hander. This is according to Jayson Stark of ESPN.

Nolasco, due nearly 11 million in 2013, seemed like a piece the Marlins would be chomping at the bit to trade.  First off, he is coming off of a year in which he posted a 4.48 ERA. He hasn’t exactly earned 11 million. Secondly, the Marlins tend to move on from players who make that type of money, even if they do earn it.

That being said the Marlins still do have to try to sell tickets, and keep other players such as Giancarlo Stanton relatively content, although it may be too late at this point. Keeping Nolasco is likely a move to try too accomplish both of the goals above.

Nolasco, 29, joined Ginacarlo Stanton in voicing his frustrations after the Marlins dealt Jose Reyes, Mark Buerhle, Josh Johnson, and a few others, to the Toronto Blue Jays last month. Nolasco likely wants to join a contender as he enters the prime of his career, but it appears he will have to wait until the trade deadline at the earliest to be moved.

Yankees Re-Sign Hiroki Kuroda

Many baseball critics, myself included, questioned if Hiroki Kuroda would be able to pitch at a high level, in the pitching death trap known as the AL East. Those many, again myself included, ended up looking foolish as Kuroda posted career highs in wins, innings pitched, complete games and WAR, in his first season with the Bronx Bombers.

Today the Yanks rewarded the free agent, who had been courted by both the Angels and Dodgers, by giving him a one-year extension worth between 15 and 16 million. The deal will guarantee Kuroda 15 million, and based off of his performance Kuroda can earn an extra million.

While many believed Kuroda was interested in a return to the west coast or even to the Japanese league, Kuroda made is clear he is excited to be returning to the defending AL East Champions.

“I am very happy and excited to re-sign with the Yankees,” Kuroda said, shortly after word of his new deal broke.

Kuroda likely could have gotten two years, maybe for less money annually, on the open market. The fact that he accepted a one-year deal shows that Kuroda is pondering a return to the Japanese league after his 2013 campaign with the Yankees.

Ed Reed suspended for hit; negative reaction pouring in

By Tim Kelly-Host,Owner, and Founder of The Real Sports Talk

The Ravens defense is used to giving out the big hits, but this year things have been a bit different. Reigning Defensive Player of the Year, Terrell Suggs missed the first half of the season as he returned from an off-season Achilles injury. Then right as Suggs was ready to come back, the team lost veteran linebacker and vocal leader Ray Lewis to a torn triceps for the season. The Ravens lost Corner Laderius Webb for the season, as well, after a week six ACL tear.

The latest defensive loss may not prove to be as substantial in terms of time, but it certainly has been controversial. Ravens safety, and future hall of famer, Ed Reed has been suspended for the Ravens week 12 showdown with the San Diego Chargers. The one-game suspension was announced by the NFL today, and the suspension actually claims Reed is not only being suspended for an illegal hit in Steelers wide-out Emmanuel Sanders. The league says that Reed has shown a history of dangerous/illegal hits, dating back to 2010, when the league wide concussion crackdown began.

While Reed has no been quoted on his suspension, the speaking has been done for him. ESPN NFL Analyst Timm Hasselback called the suspension “a joke.”

Ravens head coach John Harbuagh was caught off guard with news of the suspension saying,”I was very surprised, I didn’t see that one coming.”

Perhaps the most telling response to Reed’s suspension is what Steelers safety Ryan Clark tweeted below.

Remember Clark not only plays for the Steelers, who have a sometimes nasty rivalry with the Ravens, but the hit that will cost Reed a game, was landed on Clark’s teammate Emmanuel Sanders.

When a Steeler is stepping up in defense for a Raven, who by the way plays the same position as him, you know the NFL has screwed up. As Clark said it was a penalty, but their was no intent to physically hurt Emmanuel Sanders.

The NFL certainly will not overturn Reed’s suspension, but expect after  the PR hit they are taking across the board, that they won’t be as quick to pull the trigger on suspensions in the future.

Update 8:00 EST -The NFL has removed the highlight of Reed making the helmet-to-helmet hit on Sanders from the highlights section of NFL.com.

James Harden agrees to Five-Year Deal With Rockets

By Tim Kelly-Founder of The Real Sports Talk

Less than a week after being dealt to the Rockets, James Harden has the max deal that he was looking for.

Harden, who the Thunder traded after he wouldn’t accept their four-year 44 million dollar extension, agreed to a five-year 80 million dollar extension today.

To say the Rockets had a busy off-season, is an understatement. They came a close second to the Lakers in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes, signed restricted free-agent Jeremy Lin, and less than a week before the season acquired Harden.
