Sandy Alcantara was one of the key prospects the Miami Marlins acquired in their offseason overhaul, and he showed plenty of promise in his first career start.

The 22-year old right-hander made his much-anticipated Marlins debut and allowed just one run over five innings as the Miami Marlins defeated the New York Mets 8-2 Dallas Cowboys Jersey on Friday night.

It feels really good, Alcantara said. I’m super excited.

It’s one of the reasons why he’s the best catcher in all of baseball, Riddle said of Realmuto’s pickoff. To do stuff like that, a lot of people don’t do that and for a catcher to be able to do that defensively plus the way he swings the bat, it’s very good.

New York’s Corey Oswalt (0-1) started in place of Jacob deGrom, who was scratched hours before the game to deal with a family matter. The Mets expect deGrom to start Saturday afternoon.

Oswalt looked nothing like deGrom, whose 1.69 ERA is Semyon Varlamov Womens Jersey the best in the majors. Oswalt allowed six hits and six runs in just 2 2/3 innings. All six of the runs Oswalt allowed came in the third inning.

It didn’t change anything, Oswalt said of the late notice. I went out there and tried to attack the zone. I just didn’t make enough pitches today.

There’s some difference, then, between George’s motivation for going home and Leonard’s motivation — and George’s motivation was much easier to change. There’s also a difference in personalities, and that’s where things get tricky for a team thinking about taking an OKC-type gamble.

Asked about the possibility of the Thunder’s success with George possibly inspiring a move for Leonard by a non-Lakers team, with no guarantee he would re-sign, one GM said, Paul George is not the same guy as Kawhi Leonard. You can’t approach them the same way. George is going to try to get along with the people in his locker room. Leonard does not care as much about that.

Indeed, what we saw from Leonard in the past year, as his mysterious quad injury torpedoed his season and dragged the Spurs organization down with it, was a player who came off as stubborn and hard-headed. Leonard had always been quiet and introverted in a locker room that lacked flashy stars but was stacked with genial personalities. The quad injury drew more spotlight toward Leonard, and as that happened, he came across as an increasingly difficult locker-room presence.
