Albies, who roped a ground-rule double and his third homer of the season, provides more power than his 5-foot-9, 165-pound frame would have one believe.
“I would probably say he and (Astros second baseman Jose) Altuve are probably pound-for-pound, might be the two strongest guys in the major leagues,” Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. “He’s not tall but he’s strong, big.”
When approached by the Daily News, Rams general manager Les Snead and head coach Sean McVay would not comment on the trade rumor. However, an unnamed Rams executive asked, “where did you hear that?”
Beckham already lives in Los Angeles during the offseason, so the Rams are likely using the idea of him living there full time as a tactic.
If the Rams give their first-round pick for the 2018 draft, the Giants would have the 23rd overall pick on top of having the second overall pick.
Beckham, who said he would not play unless he received a huge contract extension from the Giants or elsewhere, had at least 90 catches, 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns in each of his first three seasons but fell short this past year due to injury.
Beckham is set to earn $8.5 million in 2018, the final year of his rookie contract.
For the campaign, Watson played a different game of catch with go-to Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Turns out, Watson and Hopkins can still connect on big passes when trading laced footballs for uncracked eggs.
Anderson, 24, had faced nine charges, including two felonies felony fleeing and eluding police with lights and sirens active and felony threatening a public servant or family member after police alleged he was clocked in his Jaguar SUV driving 105 mph in a 45-mph zone.
The arresting officer detailed in his report that Anderson verbally threatened the officer’s wife while in the back of his cruiser.
Anderson still could be subject to potential discipline under the NFL’s personal-conduct policy.
This offseason, a troubling video surfaced in which Beckham had what appeared to be a brown cigarette in his hand while a woman used a credit card to arrange lines of a white powder. The video was taken after a night of partying in France. It’s one of several incidents that have irked Giants ownership since he was drafted. Giants co-owner John Mara was also unhappy when Beckham pretended to urinate on the field like a dog after a touchdown last season in Philadelphia.
