The weather forecasters got it predicting a lot of nonstop rain this weekend in the Motor City and it’s led to a lot of downtime for the Yankees .
The Yankees and Detroit Tigers were rained out on Saturday and, although it took a while, both ends of their Sunday doubleheader were washed out, as well. .
The rain began a few hours after the Yankees beat the Tigers 8-6 in Friday night’s series opener, a victory that highlighted by Aaron Hicks becoming the first franchise player since Hank Bauer in 1956 to have a two-homer game that included an inside the parker.
The Yankees’ trip to Detroit was the second stop on a two-city roadtrip that began with two losses in three games last week in Boston.
Beginning Monday, the Yankees are home for 10 games in 11 games. They’ll face the Miami Marlins in interleague games Monday and Tuesday, host the Toronto Blue Jays from Wednesday through Sunday and then begin a four-game series against the Minnesota Twins a week from Monday.
For his career, Benwikere has made 111 tackles, two interceptions, 22 pass breakups, a sack and four fumble recoveries.
In the NFC, the 49ers would be a fascinating option. They have the quarterback, the cap space, the cash, the absence of a star receiver, and the need to create some excitement — and to have a pass-catcher who would get open against the likes of Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters.
The Panthers also could be an intriguing possibility, but a trade and a major contract for Beckham likely would have to wait until after the ownership situation is resolved.
Not many other teams would provide a good fit for Beckham, either due to the team’s current quarterback situation, the current cap situation, the current roster situation, and other factors that would make the risk far outweigh the potential reward. So, to summarize, the Chargers, 49ers, and Panthers would seem to be the most likely potential destinations — if the Giants are inclined to trade him and if a trade partner would be willing to both compensate the Giants and significantly compensate Beckham.
