BEREA Elgton Jenkins Jersey , Ohio (AP) — John Dorsey only traded text messages during the first round of this year’s NFL draft.Cleveland’s wheeling-dealing general manager, who has overturned his roster with numerous transactions over the past year, was unable to pull off a deal to get into the first round Thursday night and will start the second day still holding onto his second round pick.It’s not that he didn’t try.Meeting with reporters following a long night of working the phones, Dorsey said there were three players he was willing to move up and get, but the asking price to complete the deal was beyond his comfort zone.“I thought the compensation was too rich to move that far,” Dorsey said. “I think we’re in a position now, maybe you exercise a degree of patience in this and just see. We’ll start working tomorrow, and we’re always going to work at this thing to see if we can get up there, but the compensation package was just too much for us as an organization.”And the three players he was after?“They’re all gone,” he said.Dorsey’s decision not to package the No. 49 overall pick with any of his other seven selections for a higher spot was somewhat surprising http://www.packersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jace-sternberger-jersey , given his track record.He’s made 17 trades — including a recent blockbuster for wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. — since taking over the Browns in December 2017, bucking their laughingstock status and making them one of the league’s most intriguing squads.Dorsey was willing to trade up for the right player, but only for the right price. However, he stayed on the sideline while six other teams moved up in the first round. One of them was the rival Pittsburgh Steelers, who jumped from No. 20 to 10 and took Michigan linebacker Devin Bush.The Steelers sent the 20th pick, No. 52 and a third-rounder to Denver to climb.Dorsey said he couldn’t find the right bargain for the Browns without sacrifice.“It takes two and every time we were trying, they’d kind of say, ‘Well, you need to kick in a little bit more,’ and I wasn’t willing to do that.” Dorsey said.In his six previous drafts as a GM in Cleveland and Kansas City Dexter Williams Jersey , Dorsey made 18 trades involving picks. So far, he’s only been an interested spectator but that will soon change.Dorsey indicated he’ll be just as aggressive during Friday’s second and third rounds.“You explore those options and then you see if you can get up there at the right price or you stay patient or you even kick back,” he said. “Now we can really get into the exercise of moving up and moving back, and we will actively be working the phones all day, all evening tomorrow.”The Browns will likely explore the market for a cornerback as only one has been taken and there several top-rated players available, including Washington’s Byron Murphy, LSU’s Greedy Williams, Temple’s Rock Ya-Sin, Notre Dame’s Julian Love and Michigan State’s Justin Layne, who is from Cleveland.This was the first time since 2008 — and eighth overall — that the Browns didn’t have a first-round selection.The outsider’s role is a new one in Cleveland Max Scharping Jersey , where fans have grown accustomed to early picks, and so many bad ones.After selecting Myles Garrett and Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall picks in each of the past two drafts, the prize — or punishment — for going 1-31 in two seasons under former coach Hue Jackson, the Browns came in as one of four teams without a first-round pick.They willingly gave it up when Dorsey stunned the league last month by trading the No. 17 pick to the New York Giants as part of the deal for Beckham, whose arrival has sparked wild expectations in Cleveland. The Giants used that selection on Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence.And while he’s not pulled off a deal yet in this draft, Dorsey is plenty proud of his most recent one.“I’m very happy to have Odell Beckham as the 17th pick in the 2019 draft,” he said, smiling. It didn’t seem to matter much who was pitching against DJ LeMahieu. After striking out in his first at-bat, the Rockies leadoff hitter was as locked in as he’s been all season.
Especially in the ninth inning when Colorado trailed.
LeMahieu hit a two-run homer in the ninth and set a career best with five RBIs as the Rockies rallied past the San Francisco Giants 9-8 on Thursday to snap a four-game losing streak.
”It was a good one to win,” LeMahieu said. ”I feel like we’ve been on the other end of that for the last couple of weeks so it was good to win that one late.”
Nolan Arenado hit his 19th home run http://www.texansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-kahale-warring-jersey , tying him for the National League lead with Washington’s Bryce Harper. Trevor Story added three hits for Colorado, which had lost four straight at San Francisco.
The Rockies blew leads of 5-2 and 7-5 and were down 8-7 before scoring twice off closer Sam Dyson (2-2) to avoid a series sweep.
Chris Iannetta hit a leadoff single in the ninth and was replaced by pinch-runner Pat Valaika. After pinch-hitter Tom Murphy popped out, LeMahieu sent a full-count pitch from Dyson into the left-field stands.
Two nights earlier, Dyson got LeMahieu to ground into a game-ending double play with the tying run on base.
”It was roughly where we wanted,” Dyson said. ”I figured we’d go (inside) like we did two nights ago. Just didn’t get it far enough in there.”
It was a big hit for a ballclub that had been 0-37 when trailing going into the ninth.
”That was a big swing when the momentum shifted back to them in a big way,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. ”It takes a special moment and a special swing to get it back on our side and DJ put a great swing on that ball. It was awesome.”
LeMahieu had an RBI single as part of Colorado’s four-run fourth. His two-run single off Ty Blach in the seventh gave the Rockies a 7-5 lead.
Each of LeMahieu’s hits came off different pitchers.
”He knows the opposition, he knows pitchers,” Black said. ”He’s as prepared as any player I’ve been around.”
Adam Ottavino (4-1) gave up two runs but retired three batters to win. Wade Davis pitched the ninth for his 22nd save.
All three games in the series were decided by one run.
Brandon Belt hit a two-run homer, Joe Panik had two hits and two RBIs while Pablo Sandoval and Andrew McCutchen also had two hits for San Francisco.
The Giants trailed most of the afternoon but took an 8-7 lead in the eighth when Alen Hanson doubled in two runs.
”That was a hard fought game,” San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said. ”Tough one when you have a lead in the ninth and we couldn’t hold on to it. Sam was just a little bit off.”
Arenado homered off starter Chris Stratton in the first Cullen Gillaspia Jersey , his 10th this season in the opening frame.
It was also Arenado’s 10th career home run at AT&T Park, tying former Rockies infielder Troy Tulowitzki for second-most among visiting players. Arizona’s Paul Goldschmidt has 11.
Neither starter factored in the decision and had nearly identical lines.
Stratton allowed five runs on eight hits in four innings. Colorado’s Jon Gray also gave up five runs in four innings but yielded seven hits with seven strikeouts.
BACK TO BACK
Giants catcher Nick Hundley threw out a pair of runners trying to steal second base in consecutive at-bats in the eighth. Story hit a leadoff single but was thrown out. Gerardo Parra then reached on an error but was quickly erased when he tried to take second
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr, a noted Dodgers fan, attended the game and sat next to the Giants dugout, at one point reaching over to shake hands with Bochy.
Giants: C Buster Posey was held out of the starting lineup due to the pitching matchup but had a pinch-hit single in the eighth.
