Report: Chiefs Interested in Trading for Nick Foles

Report: Chiefs Interested in Trading for Nick Foles

It was only a matter of time until somebody added fuel
to this rumor’s fire. If Nick Foles truly is not a viable option for new
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly’s offense as many observers believe,
maybe Foles’ old teacher would like to pick up the lesson from where the two
left off.

According to USA Today’s Mike Garafolo, Andy Reid is game.
In a report filed on Thursday evening, Garafolo writes a Nick Foles trade is
something that would be on the table for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Of course, it takes two to tango, and whether or not the
Eagles are considering dealing Foles is unknown. Both Garafolo and our own
Reuben Frank believe the organization is sincere about giving Foles a chance to
win the starting quarterback job.

But as the saying goes, anybody is available in a trade for
the right price. Garafalo cites an NFL.com report from a former Eagles’ scout
who says Reid and assistant Doug Pederson "were very high on Nick Foles
and his future."
It has to at least make you wonder what the Chiefs would
be willing to offer.

It probably wouldn’t be as enticing as you might imagine. While
Foles improved over the course of his seven-game audition, he didn’t significantly
increase his value much beyond the late third-round pick the Eagles spent in
2012.

Actually, Foles could be worth slightly less now to anybody besides
Reid. The fact that another staff has already broken Foles in, combined with
the negativity associated with “giving up on a kid” after one season means potential
partners could hold substantial leverage.

I’m not convinced general manager Howie Roseman made an
investment so he could readily take less on a return only a year later, and the
notion that Kansas City would send their second in this year’s draft – aka the
33rd overall selection – sounds like crazy talk no matter how much Andy likes Foles.

Guess you never know. Unless another team is going to knock
your socks off though, why not give Foles a chance to play?

Chip Kelly’s system, right. Even if Foles is not an ideal
fit for what Kelly is trying to do here, it still doesn’t seem wise to shun
perhaps the best quarterback on the roster for what may only amount to a collection of mid-to-late-round
draft picks.

Not sure I like the idea of going all-in on Kelly’s offense,
either. There’s nothing more to it than speculation for the time being however,
but no matter how much either organization denies it, discussion of a potential
Foles-to-Kansas City swap is not going away.

MLB Playoffs: Yankees storm back for win over Astros to even ALCS

NEW YORK -- Aaron Judge ignited a rousing rally with a home run, then doubled during a four-run eighth inning to spur the New York Yankees over the Houston Astros 6-4 Tuesday night and level the AL Championship Series 2-2.

The Yankees trailed 4-0 against starter Lance McCullers Jr. until Judge homered leading off the seventh. He tied it with a line drive that nearly left the park in the eighth and scored on Gary Sanchez's go-ahead two-run double off loser Ken Giles.

The Yankees have rallied from a second straight 0-2 series deficit -- they beat Cleveland in the Division Series by winning three in a row to take that best-of-five matchup.

Aroldis Chapman struck out two in a perfect ninth, and New York improved to 5-0 at home in the playoffs.

Masahiro Tanaka pitches for New York against Dallas Keuchel in Game 5 Wednesday and rematch of the opener, won by the Astros 2-1 (see full recap).

Dodgers on brink of World Series after shutout
CHICAGO -- Yu Darvish pitched sparkling ball into the seventh inning, Chris Taylor homered again and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 6-1 on Tuesday night to open a commanding 3-0 lead in the NL Championship Series.

Andre Ethier also went deep and Taylor added an RBI triple in the fifth as Los Angeles set a franchise record with its sixth consecutive playoff win. Yasiel Puig had two more hits in another entertaining performance that included an impressive bat flip -- on a long foul ball in the first inning.

Looking for a four-game sweep and their 22nd NL pennant, the Dodgers will send Alex Wood to the mound Wednesday night at Wrigley Field with a chance to reach the World Series for the first time since their last championship in 1988. Jake Arrieta, eligible for free agency after the season, pitches for the Cubs in what could be his final start with the team.

Los Angeles was eliminated by Chicago in the NLCS last year, but this is a different group of Dodgers. The lineup is patient and pesky and the pitching staff is much deeper, especially since Darvish was acquired in a trade with Texas in the final minutes before the July 31 deadline (see full recap).
