*Jeremy Hellickson has the best WHIP (0.71) in the NL, albeit through merely 4 starts. However, this is on the heels of a strong 2016 campaign, so he’s lining himself up as a sought after trade chip. Of course, he could potentially stay with the Phillies, as a mid-season extension could be a viable option.
Unless we get a CJ Spiller-style, out-of-left-field selection, the consensus seems to be that the Bills are either going to pick a wide receiver or defensive back in the first round of the draft. It also seems that they’ll most likely pick whichever position they don’t pick in the first round in the second round. I’m fine with them going for either at the 10th spot or to at least trade down

Inside the draft numbers – Bigger rookie impact: WR or DB?
As we get closer to the draft (and as free agency winds down) I will be putting out a few mock drafts. Each time I will go through the process 3 times, with a full 7 round mock once, and each time operating under the rule that I must make different selections each time. Of course I will still make decisions based upon the Saints realistic needs and will prioritize the biggest weak areas of the roster over others

Buffalo Wins Staff Round Table Part II: What To Do About This Team by @manecci, @mack10zie, @evancdent, @mmigliore, @2itb_buffalo and JOE!
What a team and what a time of year. Usually, in addition to getting ready to greet the new year, Bills fans are in damage assessment mode: what player/coach/GM/president/owner is at fault for this year’s failure and do we get them out? This year, it’s a strange time.
The Nets’ 109-101 victory over the Pistons last night in Brooklyn was another impressive one for the home team, who struggled in the second half but were able to hold onto a 71-55 halftime lead. Brook Lopez (34 points, 11 rebounds) and Sean Kilpatrick (24 points, 10 rebounds) led the way for the Nets, who shot nearly 54 percent from the field (and 48 percent from three). But, for the 2-3 Nets, the jubilation from the win was short-lived.
ATLANTA – Matt Klentak joined the Phillies here for the final moments of the season, just in time to see his young team sputter to the unceremonious end. From a radio booth above the diamond at Turner Field, the first-year Phillies general manager watched two rain delays push Tuesday’s game past midnight, heard his manager again issue a public plea for the addition of an established hitter, and endured a nine-run outing by Adam Morgan in Wednesday’s 12-2 Braves blowout.
NEW YORK – The Phillies clubhouse fell silent Sunday morning as the players gathered around television sets to watch the shocking news that Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez had died in a boating accident. Baseball – just like any professional sport – is a tight fraternity. And the news hit home.
