Oscar Gamble, whose enormous Afro hairdo cast a wide shadow over a 17-year MLB career, has died, his agent, Andrew Levy, said Wednesday. Gamble was 68.
Along with the hair Henri Richard Youth jersey that he struggled to keep under a batting helmet, his description of the Bronx Zoo era New York teams of the late 1970s and early ’80s etches his name permanently in baseball lore.
If McCourty doesn’t make the roster, the Pats aren’t out much.

It’s a very reasonable bet for the team.
I’m not sure why McCourty is less likely to be an effective cornerback than Mitchell, who was benched repeatedly by the Chiefs last season.
But the Browns will pay a premium for the privilege of finding out.
DL Dontari Poe, Panthers Grade: C Poe famously turned down a multiyear deal from the Chiefs and hit free agency last year, only to find a weak market for his services.
Poe settled for a one-year deal with the Falcons in the hopes of rebuilding his value, and it worked.
The Jets invested heavily in the secondary a year ago by drafting Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye, but the cornerback position still needed work. It’s suddenly in a much better place with Johnson added to the fold.
There aren’t many, other than potential over-payment given the past two years of the franchise tag and Johnson’s potential expectations. He’s young enough to be worth a big deal, though. Since he became a full-time starter in 2014, he has dealt with a few injuries, playing in just nine games in 2014, and missing two games in both 2015 and 2016.

The veteran signed a one-year, $10 million deal with New York, per NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. This pushes him one year closer to joining Tom Brady as the league’s only passers to see their fifth decades while calling plays. McCown had a bounceback season at age 38 to prove he’s still capable of leading an NFL team, guiding New York to an overachieving 5-8 record before succumbing to injury and completing more than 67 percent of his passes.
