Harvey a talent beyond his years
Hunter Harvey has the repertoire, the mechanics, the mound presence and the command to become a highly qualified Major League starting pitcher. He throws strikes and takes charge on the mound. He has the ability to repeat his simple, uncomplicated delivery and not waste energy with extraneous movement. He uses his size to his advantage, as he comes over the top and gets late life on all his pitches. Even at the young age of 19, Harvey has the ability to keep the ball down in the strike zone.

It’s A Done Deal… Obama Caves – Will Extend Bush Tax Cuts
Filed under: — Robert Farrow @ 12:34 am

Posted by Jim Hoft

Barack Obama finally caved to Republican demands and will not raise taxes in January on America’s top earners. The president cut a deal with Republicans on extending the Bush tax cuts.
FOX News reported:

The Obama administration, as part of last-minute negotiations with congressional leaders over the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts, is proposing a one-year payroll tax reduction that would cut the amount contributed to Social Security from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent, a senior congressional aide confirmed to Fox Business.

News of the proposed payroll tax reduction, originally reported by the Wall Street Journal, came ahead of a White House news conference Monday evening in which President Obama renewed his calls for tax relief targeting the middle class and his criticism of making tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans permanent.

But in the end, he said, a compromise must be reached before the Bush-era tax cuts expire at the end of the year, because letting the cuts expire “would be a chilling prospect for the American people.”

Ordinary Americans would become “collateral damage for political warfare in Washington,” he said. “I am not willing to let that happen.”

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released this statement:

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement Monday regarding a framework of a bipartisan agreement to prevent tax hikes on every American taxpayer :

“I appreciate the determined efforts of the President and Vice President in working with Republicans on a bipartisan plan to prevent a tax hike on any American and in creating incentives for economic growth. Their efforts reflect a growing bipartisan belief that a new direction is needed if we are to revive the economy and help put millions of Americans back to work. Members of the Senate and House will review this bipartisan agreement, but I am optimistic that Democrats in Congress will show the same openness to preventing tax hikes the administration has already shown.”

The left is in full meltdown.

Ray Rice earns big cheers from Baltimore Ravens fans at training camp (Shutdown Corner)
We've done our best to call out Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice for his inexcusable actions (for which he never really actually apologized to his victim, which just happens to be his wife now) and we've taken the NFL to task for their two-game suspension, which — when you stack it up to some of other Roger Goodell's discipline — appears quite light. [ Smack talk season is back at Yahoo Sports: Sign up and play free Fantasy Football! ] But the most forgiving group of people appears to be Ravens fans, who just love their player. Fans loudly cheered Rice on Monday, as his image repeatedly appeared on the big screen at M&T Bank Stadium, the site of the Ravens' first open practice at training camp.  Rice even beat his chest as a nod to fans. Per ESPN.com's Jamison Henley , many fans in the crowd Monday night were wearing Rice's No. 27 jersey, including several women and children.  The facts are these: Rice was beloved prior to his altercation with then-fiancée-now-wife Janay Palmer in February, and — if the cheers are any indication — he remains one of the team's most popular players. The team was cautious at first when the news of the incident broke, but make no mistake: It firmly has stood in Rice's corner, explaining the event as being out of character for Rice. Rice, who will speak to the media, issued a statement through the Ravens' PR department last week after deciding not to appeal the NFL's two-game suspension. “It is disappointing that I will not be with my teammates for the first two games of the season, but that’s my fault," Rice said. "As I said earlier, I failed in many ways. But, Janay and I have learned from this. We have become better as a couple and as parents. I am better because of everything we have experienced since that night. The counseling has helped tremendously. “My goal is to earn back the trust of the people, especially the children, I let down because of this incident. I am a role model and I take that responsibility seriously. My actions going forward will show that.”  His job earning back the trust of Ravens fans appears a fairly easy task. The rest of the country might come a little more slowly if the public outcry over the event and its aftermath (even if that scorn is aimed roundly at the NFL) is any indication. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

NFL roundup: League claims Rice message sent (The SportsXchange)
Uproar over the NFL's punishment for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice is unfounded, NFL senior vice president of labor policy Adolpho Birch said Monday. Rice was suspended two games for his offseason arrest and plea deal in a domestic violence incident involving his then-fiancee and now wife, Jenay Palmer. Rice was seen on surveliance video at a casino in Atlantic City dragging an unconscious Palmer out of an elevator in February. The Ravens have supported Rice in the case, citing his sterling reputation before the incident, which create a social media firestorm in February and again last week when the NFL handed down a two-game suspension.

Browns put on the pads, get physical in camp (The Associated Press)
Behind his stylish sunglasses, Browns first-year coach Mike Pettine stayed cool and showed little outward emotion on a day he had been looking forward to for months. The Browns practiced in full pads. For the first time since training camp opened, the Browns weren't just running around the manicured fields behind their training headquarters in helmets, jerseys and shorts. They wore shoulder pads, thigh pads, hip pads, knee pads and whatever other protective padding NFL players decked out in these days.

Detroit Lions tabling contract extension talks with Suh until after season (Shutdown Corner)
Detroit Lions president Tom Lewand told the media Monday that the team will table contract talks with free-agent-to-be defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh until after the completion of the season. Lewand wouldn't rule out using the franchise tag to keep Suh next year, just said a lot of options on table — Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) July 28, 2014 [ Smack talk season is back at Yahoo Sports: Sign up and play free Fantasy Football! ] Although Lewand said he's optimistic the team can find a way to make the deal happen, Suh's massive 2014 base salary of $22.5 million (!) means that his franchise-tag number will be a whopping $27 million (!!) next year. If the Lions are nuts enough to tag Suh at that level, he should just sign the franchise tender and collect the guaranteed pile of cash. It would be more than what Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Haloti Ngata received for guaranteed money for his entire extension and $11 million more than what Suh's teammate, Calvin Johnson, received in the form of a signing bonus a year and a half ago. This one is going to be extremely tough. The Lions, of course, don't have to make Suh their franchise player, but if they can't sign him now and Suh plays at an All Pro level this season, the price for an extension only goes up. And in Suh's mind — one that's tricky to crack — he might think his value should break the bank after this season even if he does not play at an elite level. Suh is a very good player whose inconsistencies have been a tad frustrating. He's better than most of the defensive tackles in the NFL, and Suh occasionally has played at a very high level. But the Lions always appear to be wanting just a little more. We'll need to see how he fares with a new head coach and defensive coordinator, but you might be able to make the argument that Gerald McCoy — taken one slot after Suh in the 2010 draft — might have passed him as a player. You get the feeling that the Lions are putting up a good front on their chances to re-sign Suh one day, but they can't really be feeling too good deep down. That franchise number would be cap-crippling to use on a quarterback, much less a defensive tackle, even one as talented as Suh. It's just not feasible unless it's a vehicle toward getting him signed for the long term. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

Jaguars' WR woes offer Lee, Robinson more chances (The Associated Press)
Justin Blackmon is probably gone for good. Ace Sanders is suspended the first four games of the season. Good thing the Jacksonville Jaguars drafted fellow receivers Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson, two second-round picks who could be opening-day starters. Lee and Robinson have stood out during the first few days of Jacksonville's training camp - and not just because they're running with the first-team offense.
