The Washington Redskins remain open to parting ways with Kirk Cousins at the right price.
Mark Maske of The Washington Post reported the Redskins want a second-round pick in the NFL draft in exchange for the backup quarterback, according to a person familiar with the team's planning.
They're highly unlikely to get it. Cousins seems to be the perfect fit to be a career back up in the NFL for 10 plus years. He has a 56.2 completion percentage, 51.5 QBR and 8:10 TD-to-INT ratio in eight career games. It would be a sign of absolute desperation if a quarterback-needy team gave up a second-rounder for Cousins. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Phillies recalled Cody Asche from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
The Phillies seem ready to commit to Asche as their new starting left fielder which certainly gums up the outfield configuration for veterans like Ben Revere, Grady Sizemore and Jeff Francoeur. It also displaces Darin Ruf. While they may be happy with the defensive work he did down in the minors, Asche's bat never really heated up, so the team is still going to have some serious offensive woes. This plan may have looked good on paper, but it should be re-visited in a couple of weeks to see how things are panning out. Analysis: Howard Bender
