To some, the most logical landing spot was the Atlanta Braves, but they seemed to fill the need by signing Kurt Suzuki on Saturday. So where does that leave Wieters now? The Los Angeles Angels simply need offense, so adding Wieters at catcher or even designated hitter would be a massive upgrade for them.
MELBOURNE, Australia — Angelique Kerber said before the Australian Open that she wasn’t putting too much pressure on herself as the top-seeded player at a Grand Slam tournament for the first time. Clearly, she is still getting used to being No. 1. The German player ended Serena Williams’ reign atop the rankings after picking up her second Grand Slam trophy last fall at the U.S. Open following her breakout win at last year’s Australian Open. Since then, however, her results have been pedestrian — seven tournaments, no titles and a 5-7 record against top-50 players. Her title defense in Melbourne also ended prematurely in a 6-2, 6-3 loss to American CoCo Vandeweghe in the fourth round on Sunday.
Sure, Aaron Rodgers is the key player in any game that he plays — maybe for either team. Montgomery’s two rushing TDs got lost amid Rodgers’ fireworks display in the win against the Dallas Cowboys, although his blitz pickup in that game left a lot to be desired.
