Punter Lac Edwards, drafted by the Jets in the seventh round, grew up in Australia. After high school, he took a year off from school, worked for a brick layer and played Australian football. He punted an American football for the first time in 2012. He put together a highlight film, sent it to American universities and landed at Sam Houston State.

The Yankees got some "tough love" from manager Joe Girardi after Friday night's 4-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox. According to a source, Girardi addressed his team in a voice loud enough to be heard outside the steel door of the Fenway Park visitors clubhouse. Girardi's agitation with his team, which has lost 3 in a row, 7 of their last 10 and sits in last place in the AL East with an 8-13 record, was confirmed by a player and a coach, neither of whom would speak on the record. Asked for specifics, one of the clubhouse sources shrugged and said, "We've been losing." Girardi refused to confirm he had spoken angrily to his team but when asked if he uses the tough love approach said, "I've given them plenty of that."
