  • Scott Clarke/ESPN Images(DENVER) -- ESPN reports Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph named quarterback Trevor Siemian the team's starting quarterback, calling him the "clear-cut winner" over Paxton Lynch.Joseph made the announcement to the media:"We decided on making Trevor Siemian our quarterback. Both guys competed hard. Both guys wanted the job. We're pleased with both guys, but overall the operation of the entire offense, decision-making, ball placement, was more consistent with Trevor. That's why he won the job."Siemian and Lynch each started one preseason game in what was a competition between the two for the starting job. They both took first-team reps throughout the early offseason.Siemian has outperformed Lynch statistically so far this preseason, throwing for 144 yards and a touchdown. Lynch has thrown for 81 yards and has not led the offense to a touchdown to date.Siemian started 14 games for the Broncos last season after beating out then-backup Mark Sanchez for the starting job.Lynch was Denver's first-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, selected after playing for the University of Memphis.Joseph had positive things to say about Lynch despite him not becoming the starter:"He knows he's one play from playing, so he can't lose his enthusiasm for getting better as a quarterback. That's a big deal for him, just keep his focus, be a good teammate and keep working."Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

The following day, Kinsler unloaded on Hernandez, telling reporters Hernandez is a bad umpire who is "messing with baseball games, blatantly." He continued his criticism, saying, "He needs to find another job, he really does."Umpires across Major League Baseball wore white wristbands on August 26 in a show of support for Hernandez. They made the decision after MLB did not suspend Kinsler. The umpires ended their protest on Sunday when MLB commissioner Rob Manfred offered to meet with their umpires' union governing board.Hernandez has been an umpire since 1993. When told of Kinsler's criticism, Hernandez said, "It doesn't matter."Kinsler says he has no regrets about his comments.Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus told the media that Kinsler's fine is "the biggest fine I've ever seen Major League Baseball give a player," adding, "I don't want them to minimize that he's not being punished."Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
