Royals news: Ex Royal receives biggest contract in Reds history, new manager keeps staff

Posted Dec 05, 2019 10:00 PM

Moustakas makes bank:

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds have completed a $64 million, four-year deal with former second baseman Mike Moustakas, the biggest free agent contract in Reds history. The 31-year-old infielder will plug the Reds' hole at second base, which opened when Scooter Gennett (jeh-NEHT') got hurt and then was traded at midseason. The Reds are trying to upgrade an offense that was among the National League's worst at scoring runs last season. They have become active in free agency the last two years, trying to escape a rut of six straight losing seasons. They signed Moustakas from the NL Central-rival Brewers.


Matheny not rocking the boat:

Royals manager Mike Matheny has announced his first coaching staff in Kansas City and most of the names are familiar. Hitting coach Terry Bradshaw and pitching coach Cal Eldred will return from Ned Yost's staff in the same roles. Pedro Grifol will move from working with catchers to bench coach, Rusty Kuntz will move back to first base and Vance Wilson will shift to third base. Larry Carter is joining the big league club after working with Royals minor league players, and John Mabry and Rafael Belliard are the newcomers to the organization.

Husker football players face 2+ year suspension over alleged sexual misconduct

Lincoln, NE (NPPost) - News broke on Wednesday afternoon that players Andre Hunt and Katerian LeGrone were found to have violated the University of Nebraska's sexual misconduct policies and face 2 1/2 years of suspension from the University.


Both players were suspended on Aug. 26th of this year and did not see any playing time because of the incident.


The allegations stem from an August 25th incident in the players off-campus apartment in which an unnamed woman was invited to the apartment and taken advantage of by the players.


The woman filed a report with the Lincoln Police department that night and the investigation into the incident remains open. No charges have been filed at this time.


As of December 4th, the two players have seven university business days in which they can file an appeal and avoid a 2 1/2 year suspension from the university. If no appeal is filed the judgement will stand.


The University decided on the length to allow the woman enough time to finish her education.
