Esto es parte de lo que nos dijo el dirigente Joe Girardi sobre remover a Aroldis Chapman de su rol como cerrador de los Yankees: "Ha estado batallando durante los últimos 10 días, dos semanas. Y pienso que lo mejor que podemos hacer para que pueda retomar el buen camino es moverlo en su rol un poco hasta que le comience a ir bien de nuevo; una vez retome el buen camino como creo que sucederá, entonces hay una buena probabilidad de que lo pondré de nuevo en el rol de cerrador. Traté de explicarle lo importante que es él para nosotros. Y que creemos en él y que está pasando por un momento difícil y tenemos que ayudarlo a retomar el buen camino. Y así será. La ley de promedios nos dice que así será. Es un poco parecido a lo que sucede con un bateador cuando pasa por un mal momento en el plato. Con el tiempo las cosas regresan a su nivel. Creo que vendrá un buen momento para él, realmente creo en eso."

Here is what Yankees manager Joe Girardi said about removing Aroldis Chapman from the closer role: "He's been scuffling for the last 10 days, two weeks. And I just thought for us to get him on track maybe the best way would be to move him around a little bit until he gets going and then when we get him going like I believe he will get going there's a good chance I'll put him right back in that closer's role. I tried to stress to him how important he is to us. And that we believe in him and he's just going through a hard time and we need to get him right. And he'll get right. The law of averages is he's going to get right. It's kind of like a hitter when they go through slumps. Over time it's going to even out. I think he's got a good run coming up, I really believe that."

A couple of challenges tonight for the Jets: The Lions play at a fast pace -- they used a lot of no-huddle last week -- so that will test the Jets' ability to communicate on defense and get lined up quickly. The offense will have to deal with crowd noise at Ford Field. It won't be regular-season loud, but it could put some stress on the offense. They practiced all week with artificial crowd noise.

Interesting answer to whether Giants are watching Hard Knocks since they play Bucs this year. Ben McAdoo: "We have a lot of HBO fans in the building ..."

Joc Pederson's playing time seems most logically in jeopardy following Curtis Granderson's acquisition by the Dodgers, as Pederson was struggling mightily, batting .156/.253/.312 in 28 games since the All-Star break. Pederson wasn't widely owned in ESPN leagues (16.9 percent), but I've often reminded how at-bats are precious in "only" leagues. NL-only owners could consider Brandon Nimmo, who should see a corresponding rise in playing time. Nimmo's year has been disappointing but it makes a lot of sense for the Mets to play him somewhat regularly to see what they've got for 2018.

A decent mix of cheers and boos ahead of Giancarlo Stanton's first at-bat at Citi Field. Some loud ohhhs and ahhhs when the Marlins RF made contact for the first time (a hard foul ball to the stands high behind the first-base dugout), too. After working the count to 3-2, Stanton walked. This is his first game since his six-game home run streak came to an end Wednesday.

Giants linebacker Keenan Robinson is back in the concussion protocol. Not good news. He's been dealing with this for weeks. Only returned to practice for a few days.
