Finally, some hot stove action in Major League Baseball: Ex-New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi is joining MLB Network as studio analyst, sources tell Sporting News.
MLB Network is expected to announce the hiring of the 53-year-old Girardi as early as Wednesday, said sources with knowledge of the deal. He’s expected to make his debut on MLB Tonight Wednesday night (6 p.m. ET), alongside Mike Lowell, Bill Ripken and Greg Amsinger.
Josh Sitton, Dolphins Grade: A- Miami had some of the worst guard play in football last season, and Sitton should be a huge upgrade on the likes of Jermon Bushrod and Anthony Steen.
The former Packers guard might not quite have deserved Chuck Bednarik Jersey his Pro Bowl nod with the Bears in 2016, but he’s still an above-average interior lineman.
Sitton will turn 32 in July, so the Dolphins might not be in business with him for the long haul, but his two-year, $15 million deal contains $8 million guaranteed, suggesting that the Dolphins should be able to get out of the deal after 2018 if he declines any further.
That’s a very reasonable move.
The Astros beat the Yankees in seven games in the American League Championship Series in 2017. But with the addition of National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton to the lineup, many pundits are championing New York as the best team in the AL.
Verlander obviously does not support that argument and he has a case. Houston beat the Yankees, then went on to beat a team many thought was the best in baseball in the Dodgers. They return every player in their historical batting order, added two good relievers, and traded for 2015 NL Cy Young candidate Gerrit Cole.

Make no mistake, the Yankees will be a tough team to beat this season, but the Astros are far from a forgotten contender.
That’s the top of the market for run-stuffing defensive linemen who don’t get after the quarterback.

WR Donte Moncrief, Jaguars Grade: D It’s difficult to see the reasoning behind the one-year deal the Jags handed Moncrief, given that it will pay him a minimum of $7 million and hit up to $9.6 million with incentives.
