How Tigers pitcher Matthew Boyd has made 2019 his breakout year

Baseball null It’s normally about a 2 1/2-hour drive from Syracuse to Buffalo, going straight west on I-90, but somewhere along that route a truck had flipped, so Matthew Boyd, his wife and Daniel Norris had two extra hours to sit and think about the fact that they had been traded from the Blue Jays to the Tigers.It was July 30, 2015, and the two pitchers had learned about 20 minutes apart, Norris getting the call first, that they were changing organizations. Boyd was scheduled to start against Syracuse that night on getaway day, but they squeezed into Boyd’s 2008 F-150 and headed west instead.

Keuchel: This is for good of the greater good of

null Baseball Free-agent right-hander Dallas Keuchel has said he isn’t backing down as he waits to sign for what he thinks he’s worth, and the Yankees apparently are willing to be patient too before making a move on him.
