When stumped Giants general manager Dave Gettleman couldn’t think of an apt comparison for rookie running back Saquon Barkley, he passed the buck to his former boss Ernie Accorsi.
So what does Accorsi think of Barkley, who the Giants chose with the No. 2 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft?
The best running back I’ve seen come out of college in 20 years, the former Giants general manager said on the Talk of Fame Network podcast. I told Dave, ‘If you don’t pick Barkley, it’s a good thing the draft is in Dallas. Because if it were in Radio City (Music Hall), you’re going to get booed.’
Glasgow showed he had long-term potential at guard in 2017, ranking as the No. 20 player at the position, according to Pro Football Focus. He also proved his toughness and durability during his second season as the only Lions’ offensive lineman to play every offensive snap.
I’m just going to say it’s tough, but I’m focusing on trying to do that again in this year, Glasgow said.
Vazquez led off the top of the third inning by slicing a line drive over first and down the line. Judge cut off the ball before it reached the wall, then saw Vazquez trying to extend his hit.
The Yankees right fielder calmly tossed a laser to second base, directly to the glove of shortstop Didi Gregorius, who didn’t need to move it to tag Vazquez.
Yankees pitcher Luis Severino applauded the throw, then struck out the next two batters in order to preserve the Yankees’ 1-0 lead.
Designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton hit a rocket into the lower seats in left field for a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning to give the Yankees an early lead. Stanton added another solo home run in the bottom of the fourth inning to put the Yankees up 2-0. It marked Stanton’s third multi-home run game of the season.
Severino struck out six and allowed three hits over his first four innings of work.
