The St. Louis Cardinals plan to hire Oliver Marmol as their new manager, confirming an earlier report.
A PRESS CONFERENCE IS APPARENTLY COMING THIS MORNING….
Marmol, 35, served as St. Louis’ bench coach the past two seasons and is extremely well-regarded within the organization. He was the favorite from the start of the search, and is well-immersed in the culture of the organization, having worked his way up since being drafted by St. Louis in 2007.
Marmol will be the youngest active manager in Major League Baseball and the youngest to manage any team on Opening Day since Eric Wedge with Cleveland in 2003. He will be the youngest to manage the Cardinals since Marty Marion in 1951 and is younger than eight Cardinals’ players who appeared in a game this past season, including Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright.
The Tennessee Titans wanted to start games faster and score more points early.
They did just that against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Titans scored on their first five possessions and led 27-0 at halftime on their way to routing the Chiefs on Sunday, 27-3…..
Ryan Tannehill threw for 270 yards and a touchdown, and he also ran for a score as the Titans won for the fifth time in six games.
”We wanted to get going early and score points early,” Tannehill said of a team with only 20 points scored in the first quarter this season.
The Titans (5-2) also won their second game in six days over teams that played for the AFC championship in January.
They edged Buffalo 34-31 on Monday night and followed that by simply dominating the two-time defending AFC champs as Tennessee kept scoring.
”They made more plays than what we did, particularly on the first few series there,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. ”I’ve seen our guys do it and make the plays. We’re just not doing it right now.”
This was the first time Patrick Mahomes had trailed by 27 at halftime and the third-largest halftime deficit for the Chiefs since 1991. It was the worst since the Chiefs trailed Pittsburgh 29-0 at the half on Oct. 2, 2016, and only the eighth time in franchise history that Kansas City had trailed by 27 or more at the half.
