Joe Torre says Michael Pineda won't be suspended for what was on his hand last night. But Torre did say he's going to talk to the Yankees about it.
Should we call this PineTar-Gate or is that too similar to the George Brett/Yankees dust-up from the early 80's? Maybe Pineda-Gate? Sticky Palm-Gate? Whatever you'd like to call it, we'll have all forgotten about it within the week. Once he steps on the mound next week against the Cubs with clean palms and comes out ahead, the issue will finally be dead.ANALYST: Howard Bender
DeMarcus Ware will not play Week 12.
This is the third straight game Ware is going to miss due to a back injury. Even after missing the last two games, Ware stills leads the Broncos with 6 1/2 sacks. He's as demonstrative to quarterbacks as always, even at 33 years old. Analysis: James Grande
Kobe will play Saturday against Portland.
Bryant will play Saturday against Portland. Bryant ranks 122-of-122 in field-goal percentage. He's been simply terrible and has been the subject of many discussions if his career is finished. ESPN ranked Bryant 93rd before he season and it looks like that may be generous. Analysis: James Grande
Jarvis Landry is listed as questionable Week 12.
After leaving practice on Thursday, Landry didn't practice on Friday due to a knee injury. Landry is the Dolphins best play offensive threat. Interim coach Dan Campbell feels good about Landry's chances at playing. Landry leads the team in receptions and targets and returns punts. If he's good to go, he's a solid WR2. Analysis: James Grande
