On Headline Sports with Michael Roberson:

#1 Michael wanted to review with you some of this week’s big baseball deals on Tuesday the New York Yankees sent Joey Gallo to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Gallo had not been productive and the Yankees got the itch to send Gallo packing. Gallo was hitting .159 with 25 home runs, 46 RBIs, Gallo did strike out plenty 194 times in 421 at bats.

#2 Gallo was getting booed by the Yankee fans and his ability to move runners over and score had fans riding him at every at bat. Towards the end Gallo was benched. Manager Aaron Boone said he respected Gallo for the way he worked and carried himself and that Boone will be rooting for Gallo from afar.

#3 Speaking of the Yankees Boone said he was excited about obtaining pitchers Frankie Montas and Lou Trivino. It won’t be long that Yankee fans will get a look at Montas who threw for 104 2/3 innings, 109 strikeouts, with 28 walks, and gave up 12 home runs for 3.18 ERA for the A’s.

#4 Turning to football Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has been suspended by the NFL for tampering after trying to contact quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Sean Payton in an attempt to inquire about Brady and Payton’s services. Ross had been suspended through Oct 17th and after an investigation the Dolphins were trying to tank games in 2019 proved to be inconclusive after former head coach Brian Flores refused to throw games so the Dolphins would get a better draft position. Flores later ended up filing a discrimination suit against the Dolphins. Flores was told Ross was mad that he didn’t compromise football games.

#5 Michael talk about the Denver Broncos losing wide receiver Tim Patrick due to a torn ACL in his right right knee putting him out for the season. Patrick in practice on Tuesday caught a pass in front of Essang Bassey and while running up field his knee give out and he fell to the ground with the torn ACL injury.

On the 49ers podcast with Joe Lami:

#1 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said the clock flub at the end of Sunday’s game had quarterback Nick Mullens not taking a knee, but instead the ball was a turnover to the Denver Broncos. Lucky for San Francisco on the last play of the game, the Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick lateraled and the ball rolled out of bounds midfield, which helped SF win and run the clock out.

#2 Shanahan who was fined by the NFL $25,000 for yelling an obscenity at an official and drew an unsportsmanship-like conduct back on Dec. 2 in Seattle. Shanahan said he would appeal a play that he felt should have stopped the clock after 49ers linebacker Fred Warner had lost his shoe and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw it off the field Shanahan said the officials should have stopped the clock and that Warner should have been allowed to get his shoe back, but promised he wouldn’t swear at the officials again.

#3 San Francisco’s George Kittle had a career day in the first half last Sunday against the Broncos with 210 yards, seven catches, with a 85-yard touchdown.

#4 Mullens had a good offensive afternoon 22-33 for 332 yards. Mullens finished with a 102.1 passer rating.

#5 The Seattle Seahawks, who streamrolled the 49ers in Seattle on Dec. 2, will be at Levi’s Stadium this Sunday. Joe tells what the 49ers’ chances are this Sunday.
