NHL playoff schedule 2017: Second round play starts for an eager Eastern Conference
Elite Stephen Curry Jersey No, you’re not experiencing deja vu. The Penguins and Capitals are playing in another second-round series. Prepare yourselves accordingly for the Metropolitan Division rivalry matchup years in the making.
Tate was a football player in high school, and his physical ability wowed scouts.
I remember I went to watch him play football one time, his baseball area scout told MLB.com a couple of years ago. He was like a man among boys. He was a water bug out there. … No one could tackle him. The bottom line was he was the best athlete in the country that year … hands down.
The idea was that Tate could cover ground in the huge outfield at the Padres’ Petco Park, while also providing some offensive punch. From that same article:
I know that [Grady Fuson, vice president of scouting and player development] liked him a lot, D-backs general manager Kevin Towers, who was GM of the Padres at the time, said of Tate on Thursday. If you look at the Padres now, you see you have to be athletic at Petco Park. They’ve become that. We were trying to find that athlete — an offensive, defensive guy with that speed dynamic. He was kind of the guy from the beginning.

If Tate can resurrect his career on the gridiron, it’ll be an awesome story.
The timing here is extremely convenient: general manager Ryan McDonough is coming back for his last season under contract. If he wants to continue to be employed, it might be wise to attempt to make the playoffs for once. Another 19-year-old probably won’t help you do that. A certified top-10 overall player in the prime of his career with two affordable years under contract like Jimmy Butler will.
