playing third base and even left field this

They say greatness recognizes greatness, and Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has certainly had enough opportunities to recognize that of the New England Patriots.With his eighth career meeting with the Patriots (two in the playoffs) looming on Sunday, Miller praised Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and Bill Belichick in a post for The Players Tribune, deeming them the toughest hes ever faced at their respective positions.On Wednesday, Brady?compared Miller?to three-time Defensive Player of the Year Lawrence Taylor, and it seems the respect is mutual. Miller calls Bradys pre-snap vision the best Ive ever seen, bar none, adding, You can disguise your look all you want, but hes still able to move guys around and forecast whats coming.Gronkowski is on injured reserve and wont play Sunday in Denver, but Miller deems him the leagues most dominant tight end, comparing him to the Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James.He went on to credit Belichick for his ability to repeatedly surprise his opponents:Some of the packages we see from the Patriots, Ive never seen before on a football field.Theyll line Gronk up way out wide at the X receiver position, and the running back will be lined up on Bradys left side. So in my mind, Im thinking, Damn, its all good. No tight end. No RB chipper in sight. Here we go. Lets eat....And then all of a sudden Brady sends Gronk in slow motion back toward me, then the ball is snapped. So I release and Gronk is coming from the outside to chip me, and I dont even see him coming. Ive played a lot of football, but theres still stuff the Patriots do that surprises me.Not all of those Miller recognized were New England foes, however. At offensive tackle -- the position he most regularly does battle with -- Washington Redskins anchor Trent Williams got the nod, though the two typically line up on opposite ends of the line. Miller says Williams has that swag about him that makes him almost more like a defensive player, as he plays in attack mode like few tackles do.Miller also picked a running back for his list, going a bit off the board with Jacksonville Jaguars back Chris Ivory. The main reason? Ivory delivered one of the hardest hits Miller has ever absorbed, knocking out one of the linebackers contacts in a 2014 meeting between the Broncos and Jets.Ivory causes harm, bro, Miller writes. He almost never runs out of bounds to preserve himself. He lays his body on the line for his teammates.Lucky for Miller, Ivory missed the Broncos-Jaguars meeting in Week 13, while he has to face Williams only once every four years. Denver hosted Washington in 2013, so the Broncos will head to D.C. in 2017.Not so lucky regarding the Patriots though, who come to Denver again Sunday and will also be on the 2017 docket, regardless of how either team finishes. Its worked out OK for Miller however: He has 7.5 sacks in seven games against New England, tallying 2.5 and an interception in last seasons AFC Championship Game.-- David DeChant Ultra Boost Pas Cher France . It was Kerbers third final of the year after losing to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia in Monterrey in April and to Petra Kvitova of Czech Republic in Tokyo two weeks ago. The 10th-ranked German improved her record in finals to 3-5. Ultra Boost France . The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70. . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. Basket Ultra Boost Pas Cher . DAmigo scored twice in regulation and added the shootout winner as the Toronto Marlies edged the San Antonio Rampage 5-4 in American Hockey League action. Acheter Ultra Boost . Ivanovic was leading 7-5, 1-0 when Hantuchova withdrew after falling 0-40 behind in the second game. The match started slowly for Ivanovic, who surrendered her first two serves as Hantuchova took a 5-3 lead. HOUSTON -- It was just over a year ago that Alex Bregman finished his career at LSU. Now, hes a major leaguer.Bregman made his big league debut for the Astros on Monday night against the New York Yankees after flying through the minors. He was drafted No. 2 overall in the 2015 draft and is considered one of the top prospects in baseball by many.Its been a fun last year, Bregman said before the game. Its been everything I could ever dream of. Its just getting started now. Im excited.Bregman was drafted as a shortstop but has begun to make the transition to playing third base and even left field this season in the minors. He started at third base and batted sixth for the Astros on Monday.The 22-year-old said he will play wherever the Astros want him, and manager A.J. Hinch said he may move Bregman around.Weve tried to introduce him to a couple positions, part of it out of need, Hinch said. Hell be introduced to left field up here, he will DH, he can spell some guys up the middle if I choose to, but he has to earn it.Hinch was very coomplimentary of Bregman, calling him polished with a high baseball IQ and a quick bat.ddddddddddddHinch wasnt alone in his compliments of Bregman.Hes very humble, he knows how to play the game the right way and he knows what kind of player he is, said shortstop Carlos Correa, who was the No. 1 overall pick in 2012 and called up midseason in 2015. Hes going to contribute in a big way.Bregman tore through the minors by hitting a combined .306 with 20 home runs and 61 RBI between Double-A and Triple-A this season. He also played in the All-Star Futures Game, falling a triple shy of the cycle.Not many players get to the big leagues this quickly, general manager Jeff Luhnow said. Occasionally, you see a pitcher do it, but for a position player, this is really unchartered territory. We want to be sure. We want to give him a chance to play a couple different positions. Hes demonstrated hes as ready as he can be.
