. hey, everybody. welcome to the sports desk. i'm mark morgan in for steve overmyer this evening. his 12-year run in the bronx is coming after next friday's game, alex rodriguez is stepping aside as a player, but he won't be leaving the organization. following friday night's game, rodriguez will be released from his player contract, and he will move into a new role, special adviser and instructor for young players within the yankees' organization, and now a-rod says the yankees' managing partner, hal steinbrenner approached him midweek with the idea and he then accepted the proposal
player. >> i think i can play baseball, and you always think you have one more hit and can help the team win one more game for sure, and that wasn't in the cards. that was the yankees' decision. and i'm at peace with it. >> he's always been a leader and mentor every step of the way. at the end of the day, think we will benefit from that er benefit from that experience, and he will help in a different way. >> following the a-rod announcement, the yankees took the field for the al central leading indians. there's a-rod comfortable with the advisory role already. tanaka terrific against the tribe. he struck out 8, and a player in the plans moving forward, didi, and that gives the bombers the 2-0 lead, and that
plans, teixeira. he called it quits 2 days ago, but something is left in his tank that makes it 3-0 in the 5th. delon gets the save. 3-2 is the final. and this afternoon, the mets in detroit, trying to avoid the 3-game sweep the at the hands of the tigers this one? a pitcher's dual. the mets needed a strong start, and the 6 2/3, and he got a no decision. sanchez just as good, but conforto finally breaking through with 2 outs in the 7th, and he goes the opposite way. first home run since mid-june, and that's a 1-0 lead. the tigers score a run in the bottom of the inning to tie it, but watch this. casey mcgee with the seeing eye single, and they get all crossed up. you have to get on the same page, guys, and martinez is
now top of the 9th. rodriguez with one on, and that's gone. a huge 2-run homer nor walker, and that was the 3-run shot last sunday, and he comes through this week, and the mets hold it 3-1, and they salvage the last game of the series. >> with the preseason kicking off, we now turn our attention to the nfl, and joining me is a man in the ring of honor, wesley walker. thank you so much for being with us. >> i'm happy it's a pleasure. >> your former team, on friday, tempers flaring, and punches were thrown. what was your take on that incident? >> i like it, and i think when you have two veterans going at it, it's the competition, and i know back in my time, we would have flareups, i call them, and it's a good competition. you don't want to see injuries come about that, and one
coming off injury, sometimes you get hurt, and that's happened in the past, but two veterans all pro at their own positions, and it's exciting. you like to see that. >> coaches would be lying if they said they didn't want to see it. it motivates the offense and defense. you have to let it go and come back and do your job. you want to save that for the upcoming season. >> reporter: you were involved in some? >> i was with one of my a about the situation. we have never gotten into fights but it was competition. he always had a problem with people talking and he liked to talk, and i did my talking with my body and what i did on the field, but it's competition, and you go to blows sometimes but it's on the field, and it helps you prepare for the games, and when people ask who is the best you ever played with? it's the guys i faced every day who made me better for the upcoming season.
marshall and eric decker's performance thus far? >> one of the best i have ever seen, barring injury, i think they could possibly be the best tandem in the nfl. when you look at brandon marshall, he's a physical specimen. mark gastno is a big guy. he's probably a lot less than he used to b but he has a physical appearance never seen. i like decker not only for his ability to do everything together as a wide receiver, but the things you need from all around. he's fast, and he can block, and they worked well together, and he is just a good, wonderful person, and i think the combination, and that surprised me with the leadership. he didn't come with a really good reputation, and the spots where he was, and i have been nothing but impressed. barring any injuries, that's
of these guys to do well. >> wide receiver guys, were you better than marshall and decker? come on wesley. >> i have always been very modest, and i will say this, i would never ever succumb to anyone, i don't think, i'm like marshall. i don't think anyone could ever cover me. there was a competition between us two as a tandem, but everyone would ask who was better, and i would say me and he would say himself. as a group together, it's it's the team itself that makes you better. i think what todd bowles has been able to put together in getting everyone together to believe in themselves and work together, that's what you are trying to build up for the reputation and this comradery, and the jets have that, but decker, marshall, and when they are on, they could be very devastating. i have never seen anything like
>> i would just say me, but i can't go there. >> that's what we want you to say. >> one final thought on that, with the emphasis of passing the ball, what kind of numbers, dude, this would be unbelievable. >> i used to be angry at alton. he could catch 100 balls, and i would get the touchdown, and it's just frustrating, and you get caught into a system. one of the biggest problems hi was staying healthy. i could have put up better fame by now. it's difference when the emphasis is on the passing, but the number one reason, i think key is really guys staying healthy, and that was my biggest problem. the guys like myself and al tune, we had a situation like this. you can't say what could have been. i think and dream about those things. i wish i could change that and play during this time.
or bust right now. do they get into the playoffs? >> it will be tough. i don't look at the teams they are playing because every year is different, and every team they have struggled and had their problems, and every year is just so different. you to get off to a good starlet, and you have to jell together, and that's offense, defense, special teams, and i know that todd bowles knows this, and i have a great deal of respect for him and what he has done, but every year is different. i expect i expect them to be in the playoffs and contend for the super bowl, but it will not be easy. >> odell beckham jr. has come into his own. >> he is just unbelievable, and who is going to not know that one-handed catch he made in the end zone? he does this on a consistent basis. the only thing i would like to see for him, concentrate on the game. i remember the incident with him and josh norman.
you not tell me this guy is a stud athlete. i think with the addition of sterling and cruz f he can stay healthy that will help everyone on the team, and i don't know if eli has had the receivers that will be this good, but i have a great deal of respect for odell beckham. he's one of the best if not the best. only time will tell. >> eli manning has beckham and what looks to be a healthy shepherd who is getting rave reviews. do you think this is the best? that's saying something for eli manning. >> the thing is, you don't know until you get on past the preseason, and you know, everything looks, even with the jets, it looks good on paper when you see it, and you know what the abilities are, but once the season starts with injuries and things happening throughout the year, i think it will be a great start for eli,
of core receivers. >> it's prediction time, do the giants get in the playoffs, yes or no? >> no. >> they do not make it. do the jets make the playoffs? >> you went diplomatic on me earlier. >> i would say yes. it's a tough call. >> i can't go against my team. i can't go against my team. >> i know it. >> a fan all the way. i was thinking about it, but it will be tough. it was never easy. i can't go by looking at the that's tough, but there's no give mes. that's all i know. wesley walker, thank you for being here. >> appreciate being here. thank you. the nfl preseason got off to a false start tonight as the traditional first preseason contest, the hall of fame game in canton, ohio, was canceled. the cancellation was not because of weather or electricity and lights, but the field conditions. the packers and colts were
was used created problems. the cleats could not pen strait the paint. one player said it was like cement. the game was canceled in 2011 because of the owner's lockout. michael phelps has done it again. he got hiss 19th gold medal, and he has more gold medals than anyone else has total medals in the h olympics. that's crazy. he's not done yet. he has at least three more events to add on to his historic olympic medal record. baseball history in denver.
