After Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and wife Kelly welcomed their first children into the world last March, twins Chandler and Sawyer, the couple announced via Instagram they are expecting a third child later this year.
The Mets have started off hot, finding themselves atop the NL East entering the season’s second full week. Michael Conforto returned far earlier than anticipated — a date that was once rumored to be mid-May or even early June turned into April 5. And what did he do?

Smith arrived at the police station for ankle monitoring. He has been arrested three times in the span of two months, beginning with an alleged act of domestic violence on March 3.
A woman, later revealed to be Smith’s fiancee, said the former Pro Bowler bit her wrists and drank two bottles of tequila during an altercation. Smith fled the scene before police arrived.
He was later charged with domestic violence, assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, false imprisonment and vandalism. After violating the protective order by contacting the woman, he was charged with three additional misdemeanors.
Smith last played for the Oakland Raiders during the 2015 season. He has been suspended for repeated violations of the NFL’s substance abuse and personal conduct policies.
Sernoffsky reported Smith will likely stay in jail until at least Friday.
