Sunday Sports Highlights
Flyers break losing streak with Morin’s first goal; Eagles trade down locking Jalen Hurts as starting QB; Phillies option Kingery and Romero to AAA.
Flyers; Morin’s first Career goal.
Sam Morin back from an ACL injury is all smiles as Morin scored his first career NHL goal, in March 27’s game against the Rangers. Patrick and Morin both score leading the Flyers to a 2-1 victory over the Rangers. This win breaks their losing streak, thus giving them more to celebrate. Morin had this to say after the game, “I am really happy. My teammates are awesome and I’m proud. The big thing is we got the W.” Nolan Patrick shares accolades with his teammate, “…Everyone was extremely happy for him and it was a great moment for the team.” Flyers win 2-1.
Eagles Trade down; Jalen Hurts locks QB.
Eagles have traded their 6th and 156 overall pick to the Dolphins in exchange for 12 overall,123 overall, and a 2022 first round pick. Many fans are frustrated as they think this was not the best move for the Eagles. Others remark, the Eagles just didn’t have the proper assets to trade up. As a result of this trade down, Jalen Hurts seems to be the main winner, securing his spot as starting quarterback. If the Eagles are able to build offense around Hurts, they may have the best chance of success. Will this come back to haunt the Eagles? Only time will tell.
Phillies; Kingery and Romero Optioned to AAA.
Phillies Baseball. As Opening day draws closer, Girardi is still working on getting a lockdown on the Phillies opening roster. However, we just got knews that both Kingery and Romero have been optioned to Triple A. This comes as Kingery continued to struggle with his swing in Spring Training. Given his diagnosis with Covid-19 last season, one could speculate that Kingery is still struggling to get to his pre-diagnosis performance. Whether the effects are mentally or physically impacting his game, we are all in agreement that we hope AAA fixes any issues and he comes back stronger at the pivotal time Phillies need both his bat and defense. With this news, it appears either Quinn or Herrera will be CF. Romero’s absence with the team leaves only one left-hander in the bullpen. Will this be enough?
