Leadoff with Lee 10.6.15 #CCSabathia #Nationals #Dolphins #Buckeyes #Browns

Yankees starting pitcher C.C Sabathia announced he is going to check himself into a alcohol rehabilitation center and will be unavailable for the playoffs. In a statement released yesterday by Sabathia:
There is no word on how long he will be in the facility. But looks forward to return to the team next season.

- The Washington Nationals fired coach Matt Williams and his entire staff after two seasons. They Expected to repeat as National League East champions and contend for their first World Series title, the Nationals and their team-record $164-million payroll finished with a 83-79 record and failed to reach the playoffs. Last year he was voted NL Manager of the Year after the Nationals finished with the best record in the league. In February, the Nationals exercised his 2016 contract option.

- The Major League playoffs start tonight as Dallas Keuchelv(20-8, 2.48 era) and the Houston Astros take on Masahiro Tanaka (12-7, 3.51 era) and the New York Yankees tonight at Yankee stadium.

- After losing 27-14 to the New York Jets on Sunday, the Miami Dolphins fired coach Joe Philbin on Monday. Since being hired in 2012, Philbin has led the Dolphins to a 24-28 record and started out 1-3 this year. Tight end coach Dan Campbell will serve as Miami's interim head coach for the remainder of the season. Campbell said he's going to evaluate the OC and DC to decide whether the team will retain them. Dolphin's defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle is rumored to be fired from the team. Dolphins owner said in a statement, "I'm extremely disappointed with the way we have started the season, but I'm confident we can improve with the talent we have on our roster."

- The Browns waived offensive lineman Andrew McDonald from the practice squad and signed offensive lineman Ronald Patrick to the practice squad. Patrick is 6'2", 302 lbs and has been with the Pittsburgh Steelers and most recently the Dallas Cowboys.

- The Browns have until Wednesday to give a reason as to why cornerback Joe Haden did not play on Sunday. His game status was listed as "probable" which means he was almost certain to play.  If there was any doubt or question if Haden could not play, he should have been listed as "questionable. But in a last minute change, he was listed as "inactive." Ninety minutes prior to every game, each team must declare seven players inactive. Therefore the list of players that can actually play consists of just 46 players. I would assume Haden's status changed after the 90 minute window.

- Ohio State senior wide receiver Corey Smith is out for the year with a broken leg that he suffered Saturday against Indiana. There is a chance he can get a medical redshirt and return to the Buckeyes for the 2016 season.

- Tough blow for the Charlotte Hornets as forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will need shoulder surgery and be sidelined six months. Last season he averaged 10.9 points per game and 7.6 rebounds. Kidd-Gilchrist, 22, signed a four-year, $52 million contract extension in September.
