Topic : "His experience and the way he carries himself

OKLAHOMA CITY -- While accepting the award for himself, Kevin Durant called Russell Westbrook an MVP-calibre player. wholesale jerseys . And on Tuesday, Westbrook delivered a championship-calibre effort that got the Oklahoma City Thunder back to even in the Western Conference finals. He had 40 points, 10 assists and five steals in a 105-92 victory over the San Antonio Spurs 105-92 that tied the series at two games apiece. "Coach told us he needed maximum effort from us tonight, and it starts with me at point guard," Westbrook said. "My job is to play both sides of the ball. If you want to win a championship, those are things you have to do." It matched the second-highest playoff point total of Westbrooks career, falling short of the 43 he scored in the 2012 NBA Finals. "Just his focus on every possession on the defensive end and his poise on the offensive end, I think thats whats fun to watch," Durant said. "People outside of our team dont really look at that type of stuff, but thats something we can definitely build on as a group, is watching him wreak havoc on the defensive end and offensively, playing with such patience." At times, Westbrook has been a maddening player for Thunder fans to watch. His dynamic athletic ability gives him a supreme confidence level that sometimes leads to ill-advised shots and a tendency to hold the ball at the expense of offensive flow. But in this game, Westbrook did just about everything right. He shot 50 per cent from the field and took just five 3-pointers. He made 14 of 14 free throws. "Sometimes hes going to go off," Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said. "Hes capable of doing that. If he makes a lot of jumpers, it gets really tough." In the midst of posting a monster game, Westbrook allowed Durant to still score 31 points. It was Durants highest-scoring game of the series after the NBAs leading scorer was held to a 22.7-point average in the first three games. Serge Ibaka added nine points and eight rebounds for the Thunder, who have turned around the series since he returned from an injury that was expected to keep him out for the rest of the post-season. "We just play well with Serge," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. "We can do things with Serge in the lineup that we cant do with other guys." Boris Diaw had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Tony Parker added 14 points for the Spurs, who blew a 2-0 lead against the Thunder in this round two years ago and are in danger of doing it again. San Antonio will host Game 5 on Thursday and wont be worried about the past. "I think we shouldnt think like that," Parker said. "Each game is different. Each series. Each year. We worked hard all year to have home court advantage, and now, its our job to protect home court." Oklahoma City dominated for the second consecutive game after getting blown out in the first two. The Thunder committed just seven turnovers and shot 49 per cent from the field. The Spurs scored the first eight points of the game, but things went downhill from there. A steal and dunk by Westbrook gave the Thunder a 42-32 lead with just under five minutes left in the first half. Back-to-back 3-pointers by Durant pushed Oklahoma Citys lead to 50-36. The Thunder led 58-43 at halftime. Durant scored 22 points and Westbrook added 17 points, eight assists and four steals before the break. Parker shot 6 of 9 in the first half, but the rest of the Spurs made just 11 of 32 before the break. A lob from Reggie Jackson to Durant for a two-handed slam bumped Oklahoma Citys lead to 60-43. A steal and jam by Ibaka made it 66-49, and a dunk by Westbrook made it 76-49. The Spurs closed the quarter on an 18-7 run and cut their deficit to 83-67. San Antonios Matt Bonner made a 3-pointer with 3:31 remaining to trim Oklahoma Citys edge to 12, but the Thunder maintained control. "We were just not focused coming out," Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard said. "Were not playing consistently throughout the whole game. Were playing in spurts or increments. Weve just got to play the whole game." The Thunder still need to win on the road to win the series. "Were just trying to look forward," Durant said. "We know how tough it is to go in there and get a W. We have to go on the road an handle our business. We feel better, but were not satisfied." Notes: Jackson started for the second straight game. He sprained his right ankle on a drive to the hoop and left the game with 8:25 left in the first quarter. He returned to start the second quarter. ... Thunder C Kendrick Perkins had 10 rebounds. ... The Thunder improved to 5-1 in the playoffs when Westbrook has at least 10 assists. ... Spurs G Manu Ginobili played just 11 minutes and scored five points. ...

The seasoned signal-caller was listening, and his interest sounded serious. "There was something behind it," Harvin recalled. Sure enough, when the Vikings first gathered for training camp this summer, there was McNabb as their newly minted starting quarterback. "He walked in the meeting room, and his first words to me were, I told you," Harvin said. "I was like, Yeah, thats nice." Brett Favres retirement plans provided plenty of fuel for the NFL rumour mill over the last decade, but that McNabb-to-Minnesota speculation has been a secondary power source for about five years itself. "This guy knows how to play ball," Harvin said. "Everybody has days, or years. Actually you could look at this team and say we were complete garbage if you base it on last year. But we know weve actually got a lot of good talent." After a humbling, forgettable season in Washington, McNabb was traded to the Vikings for a couple of late-round draft picks once the lockout ended. His contract was cut to one year, but his outlook was renewed. "You know, the Lord puts you in a place where you kind of sit back and you wonder, How did this happen?" McNabb said this week, as he reflected on his arrival here after 11 years in Philadelphia that featured five NFC championship game appearances and a trip to the Super Bowl. That stopover season with the Redskins sure wasnt what he expected. McNabb was benched twice and threw for 14 touchdowns in 13 games -- with 15 interceptions. His agent traded verbal barbs with coach Mike Shanahan about how McNabb was treated. "Last year was a learning experience for me. It was one where I dont look back on. I move forward," McNabb said. McNabb has a career winning percentage of .629 as a starter. He has surpassed 3,200 yards passing eight times in his career, during each season he played in 14 games or more. His interception rate of 2.2 per attempt is fourth best in NFL history for quarterbacks with a minimum of 1,500 throws. But since the Super Bowl seven years ago, he hasnt had the kind of dominant season Eagles fans demanded. McNabb at age 34 doesnt run the same way he used to. In this what-have-you-done-lately league, 12 years of experience can quickly create a perception -- fair or not -- of a washed-up, worn-out player. No matter how much strength or speed is left in his body, though, McNabb still has a strong sense of pride. He speaks with all the noncontroversial, team-first polish of an NFL quarterback made just as famous by his Campbells Chunky Soup commercials as his play on the field. But, like Favre two years ago, McNabb has come with a deep desire to be welcomed and appreciated again. Cheap New York Jets Jerseys. "That goes a long way," he said. McNabb is a different player and person than Favre, but the circumstances surrounding their arrival in Minnesota -- well, except for the infamous airport pickup by the head coach in his SUV -- were similar. Both became an institution in the place where their careers took off and endured an awkward season in an unfamiliar uniform before coming to the Vikings. "The whole thing about it for me is just getting back to what I do: having fun," McNabb said. "And I feel like my ability and my experience and what Ive learned here and the guys we have around, we can have a lot of fun." The Vikings have a history of acquiring high-profile quarterbacks in the twilight of their careers. Before Favre, there was Brad Johnson, back for a second stint in Minnesota. Randall Cunningham came out of retirement in 1998 and engineered one of the best performances by an offence in NFL history, nearly reaching the Super Bowl after a 15-1 season. Warren Moon was before him, achieving modest success. Even Fran Tarkenton came back to his original team. McNabb said hes honoured to be the latest in line. "Im not here to do the unordinary or any super power type stuff. I just want to be myself, and thats what they expect from me," he said. The Vikings drafted Christian Ponder from Florida State in the first round. But coach Leslie Frazier believed it was important to supplement stars Harvin and running back Adrian Peterson with some credibility, stability, and confidence at the games most critical offensive position, particularly given the lost off-season to the labour feud. "Its just been refreshing to be reminded, for me, of who he is and what he brings to the table," Frazier said. "Hes been great with his teammates. Hes done a great job of picking up a new offence and really improved all throughout the preseason on some of the things that we were putting on his plate from an offensive standpoint." Building chemistry by getting to know his teammates has been important to McNabb, perhaps more so than when he was younger. "Donovans been everything everybodys hoped for," said Steve Hutchinson said. "His experience and the way he carries himself in the locker room makes everyone excited." He has begun to get settled in the Twin Cities area, taking in a Twins game here or a Lynx game there -- hes a big WNBA fan -- with his family. "I kind of enjoy playing the game and I think as a player, when you have that kind of drive and determination each time you step out on that field, you feel like you can play for years," McNabb said. "And once you lose it, then the game is over. Its time to hang it up." cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

KANSAS CITY, Mo. wholesale nfl jerseys . -- The Kansas City Royals have added former Seattle Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu and Mike Jirschele to its major league staff. Wakamatsu will serve as the Royals bench coach and catching instructor after working as a special assignment scout for the New York Yankees this past season. Jirschele, who has managed Kansas Citys Triple-A affiliate in Omaha since 2003, will be a coach. Former Cubs manager Dale Sveum, who joined the Royals earlier this month, will serve as third base coach and oversee infield instruction. Wakamatsu served as the manager of the Mariners in 2009 and much of 2010. Jirschele has been in the Royals organization since 1992 and has been the manager of the Omaha Storm Chasers for the last 11 seasons. wholesale jerseys .C. -- Gary Players upcoming ceremonial drive is the latest Masters honour in a career filled with them. nfl jerseys china . The new Romo deal, which is being reported by the Dallas Morning News, will save the team another $10 million. According to the report, the new deal drops Romos salary-cap figure from $21.MONTREAL -- While top players keep dropping around her, Serena Williams plows ahead at the womens Rogers Cup. On a day that saw French Open champion Maria Sharapova and Wimbledon champ Petra Kvitova eliminated from the US$2.44 million hardcourt event, Williams served impeccably to defeat 15th-seeded Lucie Safarova 7-5, 6-4 in the third round on Thursday. She is 7-0 in her career against the Czech left-hander. The match played out from the service line, with one break in each set going to Williams. In the last game of the second, Safarova double faulted twice and the hit match point long. "I served great," said Williams, who is celebrating her 200th week as the world No. 1 and who is coming off a win last week at Stanford. "I needed to serve great because she was hitting unbelievable serves to me." Williams, who won last year in Toronto, is playing in Montreal for the first time since she retired with an injury in the final in 2000. For a second match in a row, the American delighted the crowd by doing her post-match interview at courtside in French. The win set up a quarter-final on Friday between the two most impressive players in the tournament, Williams and Caroline Wozniacki, who routed American qualifier Shelby Rogers 6-1, 6-0. Wozniacki, the 11th seed from Denmark who coming off a victory in Istanbul, has dropped only six games in three matches en route to the quarter-finals. "It will be a great match," said Williams, who is 6-1 against Wozniacki. "Shes playing great tennis. "Shes really focused. It will be a good match to see where I am." Rogers caused the shock of the tournament when she ousted local favourite Eugenie Bouchard in the second round on Tuesday night. But the 113th-ranked American was no match for former world No. 1 Wozniacki. "I felt really comfortable and confident," Wozniacki said. "I served and returned well. "Shes a tough player. She has some big shots. I was just able to neutralize them and play my game." Carla Suarez Navarro upset fourth-seeded Sharapova 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 in a match delayed twice by rain. And second seed Kvitova is out after a 6-4, 1-6, 6-2 loss to Ekaterina Makarova in a battle of left-handers. Suarez Navarro, ranked 16th in the world, returned from the second delay to break Sharapovas service and then staved off a break point in the next game thanks to a lucky net cord. She broke again in the final game. Sharapova said playing on centre court, which has more space onn the sides and behind the baseline than a regular court, may have helped her Spanish opponent. cheap jerseys from china. . "I think that favoured her quite well as she was able to step so far behind the baseline and retrieve a lot of balls," said Sharapova. Sharapova, just getting started on the hardcourt season, had struggled to a three-set win in her opening match Wednesday against Garbine Muguruza. She said she has much to work on in her game heading toward the U.S. Open at the end of August. "I couldnt find my rhythm from the beginning of the match," said the 27-year-old. "I always had my back against the wall, always had to come back." She said the rain, which sprinkled just enough to cause roughly 30-minute delays, was not a factor. The 25-year-old Suarez Navarro won her first WTA tournament this year at the Portugal Open in May. She will face the winner of an evening match between Venus Williams and Angelique Kerber. Makarova, ranked 19th in the world, has been hot of late, reaching the quarter-finals at Wimbledon and then going to the semifinals last week in Washington. She will play the winner between Jalena Jankovic and qualifier Coco Vandeweghe. "I didnt change anything," said Makarova, who is being handled by her mother while her regular coach is on holiday. "I just had a couple of days of holiday (after Wimbledon) and started working again. Maybe Im just really well prepared for this American tour." Kvitova said she and Bouchard, who she beat in the Wimbledon final, may both have struggled to get back into normal competition. Kvitova felt she had no legs on court, while Bouchard was equally listless in her loss to Rogers, although the pressure of expectations from her hometown crowd was also a factor. "After the big success of a final at Wimbledon, its never easy," said Kvitova, who also won at the All England Club in 2011. "For her, its a new situation. "I honestly know what Im talking about. I really feel for her. I know how shes feeling. But I think its something you never learn from, you just have to live with it. I think she will come back stronger." Later Thursday, American qualifier Coco Vandeweghe upset seventh seed Jelena Jonkovic 7-6 (8), 2-6, 7-5. Vandeweghe will face Makarova in the quarter-final. In the late matches, Victoria Azarenka downed Heather Watson 6-2, 6-4, Venus Williams got past Angelique Kerber 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, and Agnieszka Radwanska beat Sabine Lisicki 6-1, 3-6, 6-3. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

CALGARY -- A prospect for the NHL Calgary Flames has been acquitted of aggravated assault charges in a fight northwest of Calgary in 2012. nflchinajerseyshop.com . A jury found Michael Ferland acted in self-defence when he threw a punch, knocking out another patron, outside Stageline Saloon in Cochrane. Both the 22-year old left-winger and his girlfriend testified at his trial in Calgary. Court heard Ferland was ambushed as he was leaving the bar. Ferlands lawyer says his client is "relieved" to be free of the charges. Ferland played in the minors last season. www.nflchinajerseyshop.com . 10 San Diego State to a 73-64 win over UNLV on Wednesday night. nflchinajerseyshop . And former Maple Leafs coach Ron Wilson certainly knows his pain. "Its pretty hard to coach there without allowing some of these things to kind of affect you," Wilson told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun in his ESPN.BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins have two chances to finish off the archrival Canadiens. They are only thinking about the first one. "Its going to be awesome," Bruins defenceman Kevan Miller said, looking ahead to Game 6 in Montreal on Monday night. "This is the biggest game --the hardest one to win. So, we need to be ready." The Bruins won 4-2 in Game 5 on Saturday night to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series and send the Canadiens to the brink of elimination. Game 6 is Monday at the raucous Bell Centre, with Game 7 back in Boston on Wednesday night, if necessary. "We expect that we are going to have to play our best game yet," Bruins forward Jarome Iginla said. "We know that they are going to try to use their crowd, and we are most likely going to need our best game of the series." The Canadiens swept through the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round and won the first game of the Eastern Conference semifinals in Boston. But since then, the Bruins have regained the form that took them to the Stanley Cup finals twice in three seasons. The Bruins took a 1-0 victory on Matt Frasers overtime goal in Game 4, then came home to speed out to a 3-0 lead. Reilly Smith and Iginla scored power-play goals 32 seconds apart early in the second period to help Boston pull away. "They capitalized on a couple opportunities right at the start of the second period, and that was a tough hole to dig out of," Montreal goalie Carey Price said. "Were going to stay positive. The series is not over yet. Were going home, and were going to bring our absolute best." The Canadiens were in the samee position in the first round against Boston in 2011, winning Game 6 at home before losing the seventh game in overtime.http://www.nflchinajerseyshop.com/Women-Jerseys-xf-96_Nike-Women-NFL-dx-89/. The Bruins went on to win the Stanley Cup. "Some of our guys have done this before," centre David Desharnais said. "Were in front of our fans and we like the way we play at home." Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban said he thinks his team can do it. "We have enough here. We just have to bring it facing elimination," he said. "I still think that we are in a good spot. We are going back home. Thats the barn, its going to be loud. Its going to be full of energy. We are going to be ready to play, thats for sure." Subban has been at the centre of much of the action so far in the series. He scored the winning goal in Game 1 and has four goals and three assists, and on Saturday night he was the victim of an odd controversy. Bruins forward Shawn Thornton was caught by the TV cameras in the final minute spraying water from the bench at Subban, who had the puck. Thornton was fined $2,820.52 by the league on Sunday -- the maximum allowed under the collective bargaining agreement. Bruins coach Claude Julien said he did not approve of Thorntons behaviour and let him know. Thornton said he got caught up in the moment. Subban also said he would like to move on. "I dont need you guys to make it a big deal out of it," he told reporters after the game. "It is one of those irritating things when youre down 4-2. Listen, they beat us. Thats not the reason why we lost. Its just one of those things that frustrates you even more towards the end of the game." cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

Topic : The As claimed RHP Marcus Walden off waivers from Toronto

CARDIFF -- Wales gave a two-time defending champions response to a demoralizing defeat by whipping France 27-6 and keeping its Six Nations title defence alive on Friday.Baltimore Ravens Limited Nike NFL New Lights Out Black Haloti Ngata Mens Jersey . So shaken to the core was Wales by its 26-3 demolition from Ireland, the only unbeaten team left in the championship, that coach Warren Gatland warned his British Lions-laden side that careers were on the line under the Millennium Stadium roof. The players answer was a robust performance of power, pace and poise, adding up to a third straight win over France last achieved 42 years ago. "That was the response we were looking for," captain Sam Warburton said. "We knew we had it in us." He admitted playing for their jobs was also an incentive. "We said in the week that we dont want to take our places for granted. We have probably worked our hardest in the last two weeks," he said. Stand-in centre George North scored after five minutes and fullback Leigh Halfpennys boot punished frequent French errors and a second-rate scrum with five penalties that propped up a 20-6 halftime lead. When Warburton reached out to plant the ball on the line in the 64th, the score became Wales biggest win over France at home since 1950. That margin will be vital in terms of points difference in the standings if Wales, which jumped over previously unbeaten France into second place, can stay on track and Ireland lose somewhere. The Irish are at Twickenham on Saturday. Wales performance wasnt assured beforehand, certainly not after lock Alun-Wyn Jones, who captained the Lions in their series-clinching win in Australia last year, withdrew just before the match with a foot injury. That gave a second Welshman, Jake Ball, his first test start beside scrumhalf Rhys Webb, whose zippy pass was a big factor in Wales frantic start. Five minutes in, lineout ball was spread left and inside centre Jamie Roberts drew two defenders. North gave Halfpenny an overlap and he chipped ahead. France fullback Bruce Dulin claimed the ball just before the tryline, but he was accidentally clipped in the head by teammate Jean-Marc Doussain and dropped the ball, which North pounced on in goal. Halfpenny couldnt convert. He seemed to kick only the hardest goalkicks, and France kept giving him chances, especially from a scrum that Wales eventually got on top of. Captain Pascal Pape conceded the second penalty from a ruck, and tighthead prop Nicolas Mas the third for slipping in a scrum. Wesley Fofana was milked by North in a ruck for Halfpennys fourth, and a tighthead conceded just before halftime ended up giving Halfpenny his fifth penalty. Moments before then, referee Alain Rolland told both captains the scrum was a mess and threatened to dish out cards. He upheld his promise in the 50th, sin-binning Mas and counterpart Gethin Jenkins. By then, Wales was in charge and the outmuscled French had few options. "It was a catastrophic first half, our discipline was poor, and we gave away too many penalties," France coach Philippe Saint-Andre said. "We were totally apathetic in the first half." Dulin said, "They got on top of us very quickly and we couldnt pull ourselves together. We didnt go about things the right way. "We didnt start the game well and they just gained in confidence. After their match against Ireland they really wanted to put their foot down." France had a try rightfully disallowed early in the first half for a knockon, but the backs received no ball and didnt go close again until the 50th, when centre Mathieu Bastareaud slipped North and was stopped just short of the tryline, and couldnt offload to Dulin or winger Hugo Bonneval. The French backs were more involved in the second half, but Wales defence was smothering. Frustrated No. 8 Louis Picamoles got himself sin-binned in the 62nd and Wales took advantage. From a Roberts barging run up the middle, Warburton charged off a ruck and just managed in a double tackle with an outstretched arm to put the ball on the line. With 10 minutes to go, Wales substituted Adam Jones and Jenkins, Ball, Dan Lydiate, Webb, Rhys Priestland and Halfpenny, and all were cheered off as returning heroes deserve to be. Dallas Clark Womens Home Baltimore Ravens Jersey Game Nike NFL Purple . The former world No. 1 Djokovic, who is the top seed here despite being ranked No. 2, snuck past 35-year-old Czech showman Radek Stepanek in four high- quality sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-5), on Centre Court. Djokovic appeared relieved when he converted on his first match point by swatting a cross-court forehand winner that just caught the line to end an affair that featured only two service breaks.

The 11-year NBA veteran scored 18 of his 28 points in the third quarter and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Phoenix Suns 104-96 Tuesday to match their season best of five victories in a row.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Chris Iannetta swung the bat like a guy who definitely didnt want to catch one more inning. Iannetta homered with two outs in the 12th against Drew Pomeranz, giving the Los Angeles Angels a 5-4 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday night. It was his fourth career game-ending home run. "It never gets old -- your first one, your last one, whatever it may be. Its an awesome feeling," Iannetta said. Pomeranz (1-1) retired David Freese on a grounder to second base and Raul Ibanez on a foul pop to the catcher before Iannetta drove the next pitch to centre field and just out of the reach of a leaping Craig Gentry, ending Oaklands four-game winning streak. "I was just looking for a pitch to hit. It was a fastball over the middle of the plate and I got the barrel to it," Iannetta said. "I know I hit it really well. But Angel Stadium at night, you never know -- and Gentrys a really good outfielder. He almost jumped out of the gym on that one. I think it went off his glove, so I was very thankful that he didnt make an awesome play." Angels manager Mike Scioscia got six scoreless innings out of his much-maligned bullpen, as the Athletics stranded runners in scoring position in the 10th, 11th and 12th. Joe Smith (1-0), who failed to retire any of the five batters he faced in the eighth inning of the Angels 10-9 loss on Tuesday night, pitched a scoreless inning for the victory. "Joe came back from the night before and pitched great. He had life on all of his pitches again," Iannetta said. "Its awesome that he came back and pitched the way he did, along with the rest of the guys. They really stepped up and pitched to their capabilities and just showed what they can do." Brandon Moss hit a three-run homer for the As in the fourth inning. Oaklands Jed Lowrie poked an opposite-field double inside the third base bag with one out in the 10th, but Michael Kohn struck out Yoenis Cespedes after Lowrie advanced on Josh Donaldsons flyout to centre field. Oakland left-hander Tommy Milone was charged with three runs -- two earned -- and six hits over six-plus innings in his second start and departed with a 4-1 lead.. Baltimore Ravens Michael Huff Youth Road Jersey Limited Nike NFL White. . Los Angeles closed to 4-3 in the seventh with a pair of runs after a costly throwing error by first baseman and former Angel Alberto Callaspo, who had never played that position in the majors or the minors until this season. Dan Otero relieved Milone with two on and none out and Erick Aybar grounded into a force at second. J.B. Shuck followed with a grounder to Callaspo, who tried to start an inning-ending 3-6-3 double play. But his hurried throw couldnt be handled by shortstop Nick Punto and Iannetta scored from third. Albert Pujols added an RBI single one out later. The Angels put runners at the corners in the ninth with one-out singles by Mike Trout and Pujols, and Trout scored the tying run on a slow fielders choice grounder to third by Howie Kendrick. "We went to the ninth inning with the lead, but you put it behind you and move on," manager Bob Melvin said. "We werent very good defensively tonight." Callaspo also dropped a relay throw from second baseman Eric Sogard on a potential double-play grounder in the sixth by Freese. But the next batter, Ibanez, grounded into a 4-6-3 DP to end the inning. The As snapped a 1-1 tie in the fourth against Tyler Skaggs when Moss drove a 2-1 pitch into the right-field seats with two outs for a three-run homer after Callaspos RBI double. Skaggs was charged with four runs, seven hits and three walks in six innings. NOTES: The Angels will honour the late Jim Fregosi during a two-game interleague series against Philadelphia Aug. 12-13. Fregosi, who died Feb. 14 at age 71, was a six-time All-Star who spent his first 11 big league seasons as an Angels SS and managed them to their first division title in 1979. He also piloted the Phillies to a pennant in 1993. ... This was the first time the Angels played four extra-inning games on the same homestand since June 1975. ... The As claimed RHP Marcus Walden off waivers from Toronto and optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento. ... The Angels begin a nine-game road trip Friday night at Detroit. Jered Weaver will make his fourth attempt at his first victory of the season, while trying to extend the Halos winning streak against the Tigers to 10 games. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

Topic : "Things kind of fell apart a little bit in the third

SHANGHAI, China -- Just weeks after raising the possibility of a strike in protest at the crowded tennis calendar, Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal acknowledged Tuesday that bringing the top players together to formulate a plan might be difficult. Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China . Murray last month said a meeting would likely take place during this weeks Shanghai Masters, but the withdrawals of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic seem to have put paid to that. The No. 4-ranked Murray said Tuesday that co-ordinating players schedules wasnt easy. "Whether it happens or not, its quite a tough thing to do because theres a lot of players to co-ordinate and sometimes guys dont go to the same tournaments," Murray said. "Tennis players arent always the easiest people to get hold of when theyre not at tournaments." Nadal said the timing wasnt right to have a discussion about a possible next step. "There is something there, but is not the right moment to talk about it," he said Tuesday. "Always is better talk about the things when you know exactly whats going to happen and when you know exactly what we are going to do." Murray, Nadal and Andy Roddick have been among the most vocal in urging changes to the packed tennis calendar and the number of events the top players are required to enter each year. Last November, the ATP decided to extend the tennis off-season from five to seven weeks in response to years of complaints from players about the length of the season and the toll it takes on their bodies. But other issues came to a head during the rain-soaked U.S. Open, when Nadal, Murray and Roddick voiced concerns about the conditions of the courts and the schedule that forced Nadal to play three matches in three days. Since then, Roddick has pushed for the creation of a players union similar to those in other major pro sports that could act on players behalf in negotiations with ATP officials. After his first-round win in Shanghai on Monday, Roddick said he was hopeful the other players were still "passionate" about forming a collective response to their grievances. He added, however, that a cautious approach was for the best. "We need to be smart about it and take our time and make sure that its well thought out and not be kind of reactionary. But, you know, there is a discussion going on," he said. Murray was quoted by the BBC last month saying that a strike was a "possibility," but he appeared to be in more reconciliatory mood on Tuesday when he said that neither he nor any of the players he had spoken to wanted that outcome. "Its so far away from being at that level. The players havent even sat down and spoke," he said. Murray also stressed that the players only wanted a minimal change to the calendar. "Its just a matter of one or two less mandatory events during the year. Thats it," Murray said. "Doesnt really need to be a huge change in the calendar or huge change within tennis or the rankings or anything like that. "Its just very small things that seem so difficult to get done. I think sometimes the players find it difficult to understand why that is." Cheap NFL Jerseys China . When you think teams you imagine a group of people who all shop at the same jersey store and move together in a large pack with a common goal, which is usually scoring goals. But at these Olympic Games the idea of becoming a team in figure skating makes perfect sense because of a new event called, shockingly, the Team Event.Wholesale Jerseys . And former Maple Leafs coach Ron Wilson certainly knows his pain. "Its pretty hard to coach there without allowing some of these things to kind of affect you," Wilson told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun in his ESPN. SUNRISE, Fla. -- The Boston Bruins domination of the Florida Panthers continued. Well, the Bruins are beating just about everyone lately. Torey Krug scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and the Bruins won their season-high fifth straight with a 5-2 victory over the Panthers on Sunday. Chad Johnson made 20 saves, and Chris Kelly, Jarome Iginla, Patrice Bergeron and Andrej Meszaros also scored for Boston. Bergeron also had two assists for the Bruins, who are 7-0-3 during a 10-game stretch on the road, their longest such point streak since 2010-11. The Bruins have taken 14 of 16 from the Panthers, including eight straight by a combined 33-10 score. Boston is now in first place in the Eastern Conference. "Weve worked hard to get ourselves back at the top of the conference," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "By the looks of it, itll probably be a battle right until the end." Jimmy Hayes scored both goals for Florida, and Roberto Luongo stopped 37 shots. The Bruins broke a 1-1 tie on Krugs goal with 12:22 left the third. Krug took a pass from Brad Marchand in the slot and backhanded it past Luongo. "It seemed like their guys were a little bit tired and I thought I could jump up and beat a couple of guys," Krug said. "March made an unbelievable play and I was lucky enough to put it in." Three goals were scored in a span of 52 seconds later in the third, two by Boston. The Bruins stretched their lead to 3-1 on Bergerons goal with 6 seconds left on a power play. His one-timer went between Luongos pads at 11:21. "It was a big game for us. I think we played a solid road game and we came out with the two points," Bergeron said. The Panthers closed to 3-2 when Hayes found a loose puck in front and jammed in between Johnsons pads for his second goal at 11:42 for his first career multigoal game. The Bruins made it 4-2 on Iginlas goal 31 seconds later when his wrist shot went over Luongos shoulder at 12:13 for his 20th of the season and 550th career goal. Iginla moved into sole possession of 26th on the NHLs career goals list. Longtime Bruins forward John Bucyk is 25th. Cheap Jerseys. Kelly scored an empty-netter with 1:02 left. The Bruins beat the Panthers for the second time in six days, including a 4-1 loss on Tuesday in Boston. "Theyre still a benchmark," Panthers coach Peter Horachek said. "Theyre still the team that we have to gauge ourselves by. Thats a message to our guys, thats where we need to be." The Bruins tied it at 1 on a power-play goal by Meszaros. His slap shot from above the right circle got past Luongo at 9:58. It was the first goal Luongo gave up in nearly 90 minutes since rejoining the Panthers for Fridays 2-0 win against Buffalo. Meszaros made his Bruins debut after being acquired from Philadelphia last Wednesday. "It was good to go out there and play. Overall, I felt pretty good and the two points is huge," Meszaros said. The Panthers took a 1-0 lead on Hayes first goal at the 7-minute mark of the second. Nick Bjugstad shot from the right side and Johnson made the block, but Hayes grabbed the rebound and wristed it into the open net on the stick side. The Bruins went after Luongo from the start. He faced 27 shots in the first two periods, with at least three hitting the post, including a deflection off the skate of Panthers defenceman Brian Campbell early in the second that glanced off the iron. "You have to give (the Bruins) credit," Luongo said. "They came out hard in the third and they created some scoring chances. I would have liked to have made a few more saves there at least to keep it a one-goal game, but they have some good players there who can make some plays. "Things kind of fell apart a little bit in the third." NOTES: Bruins F Daniel Paille left with an upper-body injury after being hit by Ed Jovanovski along the boards at 3:06 of the first and did not return. ... Corey Potter, claimed off waivers by Boston from Edmonton on Wednesday, was a healthy scratch. ... Bjugstad has five points the past six games for the Panthers. ... Panthers D Erik Gudbranson left in the third period with a lower-body injury and did not return. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

Topic : I am truly grateful for all the sport has given

After missing the playoffs for three straight seasons, the Colorado Avalanche stormed to the Central Division crown in 2013-2014, their 112 points the second most in franchise history. Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China . Off-Season Game Plan looks at an Avalanche team that has promising young talent, but also serious warning signs heading into next season. First, the talent. Not many teams would prefer their forward core to the Avalanche group of Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon and Ryan OReilly -- Duchene, at 23, is the senior member, so they could be together for a long time. Defencemen Erik Johnson, 26, and Tyson Barrie, 22, as well as 26-year-old goaltender Semyon Varlamov are other core players that figure to be big parts of the team for years to come. Varlamov had an outstanding year in 2013-2014 and hes a finalist for the Vezina Trophy as a result, but goaltenders that vastly exceed past performance are likely to experience regression. Of the 11 goaltenders to post a save percentage of .920 or better in 2013, Tuukka Rask was the only one whose save percentage didnt go down and, of the other 10, the decline in save percentage went from .924 to .914, collectively. Knock .10 off a starting goaltenders save percentage and, facing 2013 shots like Varlamov did last season would mean an extra 20 goals against. Further reason for concern is that the Avalanche cant simply count on reducing the shots against. They ranked 27th in Fenwick Close, and face the prospect of losing their best puck possession forward, Paul Stastny, as a free agent. Maybe the young core will be able to take steps forward and improve those numbers, but that requires some projection and projection brings risk. Essentially, this is a cautionary post. There is all kinds of optimism around a talented young Avalanche squad that enjoyed a breakthrough season, but they are a team whose statistical profile ought to temper expectations and that makes this summers stakes significant. The TSN.ca Rating is an efficiency rating based on per-game statistics including goals and assists -- weighted for strength (ie. power play, even, shorthanded) -- Corsi, adjusted for zone starts, quality of competition and quality of teammates, hits, blocked shots, penalty differential and faceoffs. Generally, a replacement-level player is around a 60, a top six forward and top four defenceman will be around 70, stars will be over 80 and MVP candidates could go over 90. Sidney Crosby finished at the top of the 2013-2014 regular season ratings at 87.12. Salary cap information all comes from the indispensable www.capgeek.com.

In the past two years, Sidney Crosby, Joe Thornton and Ryan Getzlaf are the only players with more primary assists per 60 minutes of 5-on-5 play. Thats a player generating opportunities and he used his speed to generate the best penalty differential in the league. There werent a lot of forwards who played the kind of tough minutes that Gabriel Landeskog did, while posting strong relative possession stats, and his 3.02 shots on goal per game through his first three seasons ranks 11th since 2005-2006 (post Lockout I). Like Duchene, Landeskog set a career-high in points in 2013-2014, despite playing fewer minutes per game than the year before. The first overall pick last summer, Nathan MacKinnon was eased into the lineup, playing 13:33 per game in October, but gradually took on more responsibility and was up to 19:48 per game in April (20:34 per game in the playoffs). His 63-point rookie season was impressive, and MacKinnon really took off in the second half of the year, putting up 39 points (14 G, 25 A) in his last 42 games, before adding 10 points in seven playoff games. While he was the beneficiary of fortunate percentages, MacKinnon has game-breaking speed that gives him a chance to be one of the games premier offensive threats. A knee injury limited Alex Tanguay to just 16 games last season, yet the 34-year-old remains productive. Hes a ridiculously accurate shooter and has handles increasingly difficult ice time as his career reaches its twilight. If Tanguay is fully recovered for next season, he can be a valuable contributor. With a decline in ice time, and his name in trade rumours last season, its possible that PA Parenteau could be plying his trade elsewhere next season. He has 196 points (70 G, 126 A) in 264 games over the past four seasons, and his 0.74 points per game ranks 56th in the league (minimum 200 GP), so even if he isnt ideal for the Avalanche coaching staff, there should be some appreciation for Parenteaus ability to produce offence. Checking centre John Mitchell rode some fortunate percentages on his way to a career-high 32 points, playing a bigger role than might have been expected given the Avalanches centre talent, but injuries and Ryan OReilly and Nathan MacKinnon spending time on the wings gave Mitchell lots of time in the top nine. Acquired from the Philadelphia Flyers, Maxime Talbot was given a big role with the Avalanche, playing a career-high 16:10 per game (16:19 per game with Colorado) and while Talbot has, at times, taken on tough assignments (based on defensive zone starts and quality of competition) it hasnt been enough to justify his poor possession numbers over the past couple years. Hes a solid and respected veteran, but probably doesnt need the kind of ice time hes been getting. Cody McLeod has fought 90 times over the past seven seasons, but his production has been limited and he had the worst puck possession numbers of his career last season. Part of the reason for those poor puck possession numbers is that McLeod spends much of his time skating on the fourth line with Patrick Bordeleau and Marc-Andre Cliche and that trio doesnt have the talent to keep pace. Bordeleau is a 6-foot-6 winger who can play the intimidator, but when he and McLeod are on the ice, they pack more punch than they do possess pucks. Throughout his career, Marc-Andre Cliche has been a defensively-responsible forward with no offensive upside. After six AHL seasons in the Kings organization, he earned a spot with the Avalanche last year and while he may have a defensiev conscience, Cliche was one of six forwards to play more than 800 minutes in an NHL season and register one goal or less. A tremendous young two-way player, Ryan OReilly had a career-best offensive season after moving to the wing to play with Duchene. He plays a well-rounded game, which earned him a career-high 19:49 time on ice per game last season, and figures to be a priority for the Avalanche to sign as a restricted free agent, though that comes with some complications because the offer sheet he signed last season with Calgary paid him $6.5-million in 2013-2014. Working off that base means a pricey ticket going forward, depending on how OReilly is prepared to structure his deal. Jamie McGinn is a solid physical winger who can contribute offensively, and had a career-high 38 points last season. Hes a nice complementary piece for the Avs, and has handled playing with skilled linemates, making him a good fit in the top nine. The Avalanche can still put together a legitimate top nine even if they lose Paul Stastny to free agency, but Stastnys departure would be huge -- he plays hard minutes and that helped free up Duchene for a more offensive role.

Surely, his finishing ability helped earn him playing time, but Holden also had adequate relative possession stats for a team that didnt have good puck control numbers. The first overall pick in 2006, Erik Johnson has gone through ups and downs to this point, but 2013-2014 may have been as good as any in his career, taking on the tough assignments and starting more shifts in the defensive zone on his way to tying a career high with 39 points. For all the questions on the Avalanche defence, Johnson appears to be one cornerstone around which they can build. Jan Hejda gets pressed into shutdown duty, facing the oppositions best forwards and starting shifts in the defensive zone, but hes among those defencemen who get destroyed under that workload. Hes a defensive defenceman, but one that tends to spend a lot of time in his own end and, no matter how good you are defensively, if you spend that much time in your own end, pucks tend to find the net. In 2010-2011, Ryan Wilson was playing nearly 20 minutes per game on the Avalanche defence, but hes been battling injuries and has fallen out of favour on the Colorado blueline, playing a career-low 14:40 per game last season while getting into only 28 games. Hes going into the final year of his contract and may not be more than a depth player for the Avs. As part of the Avalanche plan to turn over their blueline to AHLers, 31-year-old Nate Guenin got into 68 games, after playing 32 career NHL games previously. His possession stats do suggest that theres some reason that Guenin hadnt previously been an NHL regular. The Avalanche have been exceedingly patient with Tyson Barrie, perhaps too much so, but he finally secured his place in the lineup and contributed 35 points in his last 47 games last season. His playoff was cut short by a knee injury, suffered on a hit by Wild LW Matt Cooke, but Barrie is a dynamic puck mover who should be in line for a bigger role next season. It would be conceivable that the Avalanche could lose Stastny as a free agent, then turn around and spend their money on a free agent to bolster their blueline. They could try to keep Andre Benoit, and still seek out Tom Gilbert, Anton Stralman, Stephane Robidas or Mark Fayne as guys that could play in their top four.

Hes only 26-year-old, so there is reason to believe that Varlamov could be an above average goaltender going forward, but it would be more than a little surprising if he duplicated his career-best season in 2014-2015. That could be a legitimate issue if the Avalanche dont drastically improve their puck possession because a lot of their success last season was predicated on Varlamovs superior play. Looking ahead to next season, the Avalanche acquired Reto Berra from Calgary for a second-round pick and the Avs sure better have some scouting that they like on Berra, because he had an .893 save percentage in his first NHL season, ranking 37th out of 38 goaltenders to play at least 30 games. That was enough to earn a three-year contract extension. Top Prospects Player Pos.

While 30 points in 59 AHL games since hardly assures that the 22-year-old is destined to make the NHL, the 17th pick in the 2010 Draft did get into three playoff games with minimal ice time. A smart young defenceman, Chris Bigras was Colorados second-round pick last summer and while he impressed in camp last season, the defensive blueliner could still play another year of junior before playing pro. A second-round pick in 2010, Calvin Pickards second pro season wasnt quite as strong as his first, but the 22-year-old remains a viable option for the future. The 11th overall pick in 2011, Duncan Siemens may not live up to his lofty draft status, but hes a tough defensive defenceman. After a mediocre rookie year, a strong sophomore season would put him in a better place as a prospect. Drafted in the second round in 2009, Stefan Elliott has 18 points with strong puck possession stats in 58 games with the Avalanche, but he hasnt been able to hold down a spot in Colorado. Drafted in the fourth round in 2010, Sami Aittokallio improved in his second pro season, and may eventually have a shot at the NHL, but he needs further development. Picked in the third round in 2012, Troy Bourke improved steadily throughout his junior career and, at the end of last season, chipped in seven points in 15 AHL games. With few premium forward prospects in the pipeline, Bourke has a chance to climb the ladder quickly. Taken in the seventh round in 2012, Colin Smith isnt big, but he was productive in junior and did enough in his first pro season, putting up 18 points in his last 25 games, to be encouraged that there is more to show. Undrafted second-year pro Andrew Agozzino has 101 points in two AHL campaigns. He may not have a high ceiling, but could have a chance to get called up if the Avalanche need forward depth. Mitchell Heard, a second-round pick in 2012, has 16 points and 239 penalty minutes in 86 AHL games. Hes tough, but will that be enough to make it to the next level? An undersized puck-moving defenceman, Will Butcher had a fine first collegiate season and the 2013 fifth-round pick should get more responsibility as he matures. Checking winger Garrett Meurs, big defenceman Mason Geertsen and Croatian winger Borna Rendulic are others to keep an eye on moving forward.

"Im so glad to have had the opportunity to skate with Paige and represent Saskatchewan nationally and internationally. One of my greatest joys is that weve been able to succeed and achieve our goals while staying true to our small town roots; proving that you dont need to move away to large centers to train," said Swiegers. "Id like to personally thank Patricia Hole and Lyndon Johnston for everything they have done for me, untold hours on and off the ice. Their dedication to me as a person and an athlete has been paramount in making me the man I am today." Swiegers finished, "I am truly grateful for all the sport has given me. This isnt goodbye for me but rather see you later!" Swiegers is taking a year off from competitive skating for personal reasons. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

Nathan Horton supplied the lone goal for the Bruins, who maintained a six-point lead in the Northeast Division after Montreal topped Atlanta. We have so many great players on our team and so much talent, Horton said. Boston went into its odyssey having lost three straight and four of five. Craig Anderson stopped 20 shots for Ottawa, which has dropped two of three. We felt we played well enough to win that game, said Senators head coach Cory Clouston. Horton snapped the deadlock 1:43 into the third period. Adam McQuaid fired a shot from the point that Brad Marchand deflected on goal. Anderson made the save, but Horton slammed home the rebound for his third goal in as many games. The Senators failed to capitalize on two power plays later in the frame. Anderson was then pulled late in regulation, but Ottawa didnt benefit from the extra skater.

They matched their second-longest losing skid of the year on Saturday evening, making an error too many in their fourth straight loss, a stinging 4-3 defeat to Montreal at the ACC. Falling further back of the Canadiens – now a five-point gap – and the surging Lightning for the final two spots in the Atlantic division, Toronto is hanging onto to the first wild card position in the East, in danger of falling out altogether if change doesnt come soon enough. “Weve been close, but close isnt good enough right now,” said Dion Phaneuf of four straight losses, all against fellow Eastern contenders vying for a spot in the post-season. Like in narrow losses to Washington, Detroit and Tampa previously, the Leafs shot themselves in the foot just a time or too many on this night, dropping the season series to Montreal in the process. “The margin of error now in these games is so, so, so close that one bounce or one misplay or one unfortunate mistake cost us points,” said head coach Randy Carlyle afterward. A stumbling start and more ineffective goaltending certainly didnt help matters, but it was simple errors in execution that ultimately set the stage for another defeat. Most notable among them were mistakes from two of the teams best players. There was an early and careless neutral zone turnover from Phil Kessel that fed the Canadiens first goal and a later failure from Dion Phaneuf to clear the puck that found the back of the net on Tomas Plekanecs eventual game-winner. “We worked hard,” said Carlyle, his team rallying from a pair of deficits. “[But] we have to work equally as hard and clean up some of the mistakes that we make. Turn the puck over in the neutral ice and it comes back to haunt you. Make a mistake on a turnover penalty killing and it comes back and haunts you. Those are difference-makers in the games and thats what happens when the intensity ramps up in all these games.” Running wild with points in the weeks before and after the Olympic break, Toronto had not lost four straight since the early days of January. They vaulted to 11 wins in 14 games after that stinging streak, requiring a similar resurgence now to keep hold of a second straight playoff berth. The sky may be falling in certain pockets of the city with memories of the infamous 18-wheeler still fresh, but in reality the Leafs situation is not dire to the point that they cant right themselves with 10 games to play. Theyve lost a series of close games of late, doing just enough to lose on each given night. Losses count the same though and that tide – now trending in the negative with clubs in Detroit, Washington and Columbus hunting them down – has to start shifting for the better in a hurry with the Devils up next on Sunday night. “Were still in a good spot,” said Phaneuf, ever optimistic afterward. “Obviously weve slid a little bit because of not winning games, but were still right there.” Five Points 1. Stunted Starts Toronto allowed the first goal for the sixth consecutive game and 37th time this season, actually falling behind by two for the fourth time in those six games. And while they managed to erase that deficit in short order, the trend of digging early holes is a definite negative at this point in the year and any point for that matter. “Its tough coming back,” said James Reimer of the constant need for rallies. “Weve proven that we can do it. Weve got enough character and desire in here to fight back in games, but it obviously makes it a lot tougher on ourselves.” Capitalizing on Kessels giveaway on the opener from Max Pacioretty, Montreal jumped ahead by two on a Rene Bourque breakaway, the Canadiens winger storming by the pair of Cody Franson and Jake Gardiner before beating Reimer with a weak shot glove-side. “I think maybe we just all need to be a little sharper when it starts and obviously me included,” said Reimer. The Leafs dropped to 11-22-4 when yielding the first goal this season. 2. Just Okay Reimers inability to fill the hole left by Jonathan Bernier continued Saturday with the 26-year-old yielding four goals on 36 shots. He owns a .899 save percentage during six appearances in place of the teams injured No. 1. Though he made some fine stops in allowing his team to rally from the early 2-0 hole – including a glove stop just moments before Joffrey Lupul scored the Leafs first goal – Reimer ultimately could not deliver enough of the timely big saves required for victory. This was evident on Plekanecs game-winner. Reimer slid right to left on Andrei Markovs cross-ice feed to Plekanec, but could not keep the shot – from just above the goal-line – from finding a slight hole. “I feel like its a tough bounce,” he said. “Obviously they made a good play to put it through the seam, but I thought I gave myself a chance to get over there, but it just found a way through.” Reimer remains winless on home ice since Jan. 15, last winning a start on Jan. 21. Bernier meanwhile continues to inch back from a groin injury, but not quickly enough for the teams recent fortunes. The 25-year-old skated for a third straight day Saturday morning, but will miss his fifth straight game Sunday against the Devils. “He still has some issues as far as hes not 100 per cent,” said Carlyle, &lldquo;so until hes 100 per cent hes not available to us. nfl jerseys china. ” 3. Slow Ride A slogging rehabilitation of nearly five months finally came to an end Saturday for Dave Bolland, who returned to the Toronto lineup against Montreal. It was the first game for the 27-year-old since Nov. 2, when a tendon on the outside of his left ankle was sliced by the skate blade of Canucks forward Zack Kassian. He missed 56 games. “Hes progressed along over the last three weeks to a point where he feels and the doctors feel medically thats he close to a 100 per cent ready,” said Carlyle, wary of driving up expectations for Bolland, a favourite of his upon landing with the Leafs last summer. “I dont want to put too much emphasis on him specifically because when a player hasnt played in 60 games its a lot to ask of him to come back in and be where he wouldve been coming out of training camp and playing with our hockey club early in the season.” Bollands addition gave Carlyle his first full group of forwards at any point this season with neither injuries nor suspensions on the docket. All of which allowed him to comfortably employ four lines in the fashion he may have imagined at the start of the year. Indicative of a balanced attack and a considerable shift from recent weeks and much of the year, Colton Orr was the lone forward to play fewer than eight minutes against Montreal. “It gives you a little bit more depth throughout your lineup, a veteran guy, and it kind of slots people more into where we envisioned them at the beginning of the year,” said Carlyle, who reunited Bolland with Mason Raymond and David Clarkson. Bolland, whom the Leafs made room for by sending Carter Ashton and Peter Holland to the Marlies, was lost to injury in early November just a week after Tyler Bozak went out with a hamstring issue, drastically affecting the teams depth at centre ice. He played nine minutes against the Canadiens, keeping his shift lengths short at just 33 seconds. “That first shift was probably the hardest,” Bolland said. “Its getting the timing and figuring things out out there. You sort of got to get used to it. I think the heartbeat was hurting a little bit too.” 4. Secondary Offence Joffrey Lupul and Nazem Kadri had combined for four goals in the previous 14 games, but landed a pair against the Canadiens. Lupul fired a rocket by Carey Price for the Leafs first goal midway through the first, Kadri depositing a feed from his 30-year-old teammate on a power play goal later which evened the score at three. With Phil Kessel and the teams top line cooling some in recent days – they did account for the second Toronto goal with Tyler Bozak notching his 16th – contributions from the likes of Lupul and Kadri will be required in the final weeks of the regular season. Toronto forwards had only seven goals in the previous six games, but accounted for all three on Saturday. 5. Ranger on the Mend Paul Ranger was in predictable shock in the immediate aftermath, but realized hed be okay when he was able to move his legs, hands and feet. Reversing to his left with less than five seconds remaining in the first period of a Wednesday tilt with Tampa, the 29-year-old was drilled from behind by Lightning forward Alex Killorn. He was helped off the ice on a stretcher, his teammates looking on with concern. “I remember just feeling pain,” said Ranger, suffering a neck injury on the play. “I know that my body and my mind just went into preservation mode. All I could think was just dont move, stay straight and breathe. I just kind of breathed three in, three out for the next 3-4 hours.” Ranger was taken to a local hospital that night, assessed and discharged. He remained off the ice for a third straight day Saturday and did not play against the Canadiens, his impending return to the line-up uncertain. Though he received word from Killorn in the aftermath of the collision, believing that no harm was intended, the Whitby, Ontario native nonetheless hopes that hits from behind receive more attention and study for improvement. “I think its something that happens a lot in our game and its dangerous,” he said. “Im thankful Im really strong physically and really fit and I think that really helped and probably saved me a little bit in this situation. I wouldnt want anyone else to go through that period, but especially someone whos maybe not as strong or not as heavy you could say.” Stats-Pack 212 – Man games lost to injury for the Leafs this season, including 56 from Dave Bolland, who returned from an ankle injury against Montreal. 2-2-1 – Leafs record versus the Canadiens this season. 9:01 – Ice-time for Dave Bolland in his first game since Nov. 2. .899 – Save percentage for James Reimer since Jonathan Bernier went out with injury. 5 – Number of 20-goal seasons for Joffrey Lupul, who scored his 20th of the year against Montreal. 8:54 – Ice-time for David Clarkson on Saturday, his lowest of the season. 11-22-4 – Leafs record this season when they allow the first goal.

Topic : The incident was not seen by match offficials at the time

LOS ANGELES -- Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels agreed Friday night to a $144. cheap nfl jerseys .5 million, six-year contract, keeping baseballs brightest young star under club control through 2020. The Angels said the 22-year-old outfielder and his family will be at a news conference Saturday in Anaheim to formally announce the contract along with owner Arte Moreno, manager Mike Scioscia and general manager Jerry Dipoto. Few players in major league history have approached Trouts accomplishments in his first two full major league seasons. The speedy centre fielder is both a spectacular five-tool player and the darling of baseballs sabermetrics crowd, putting up old-fashioned highlights and statistical superlatives on a weekly basis. "I think everybody is obviously thrilled that it got done," Scioscia said at Dodger Stadium after the Angels exhibition game, which Trout missed with a stomach virus. "Hes a special player and a special person." The Millville, N.J., product was a unanimous choice for AL Rookie of the Year in 2012, and he finished second in AL MVP voting to Miguel Cabrera the past two years. He gets a $5 million signing bonus, of which $2 million is due within 30 days of the contracts approval and $3 million by Oct. 15. Trouts salaries are $5.25 million in 2015, $15.25 million in 2016, $19.25 million in 2017 and $33.25 million in each of the final three seasons. He receives a full-no trade provision and the right to a luxury suite at the ballpark for 20 games per year starting in 2015. Trouts deal came on the same day Cabrera finalized a $292 million, 10-year deal with the Detroit Tigers, the richest contract in American sports. The free-spending Angels were determined to reward Trout while locking up their prized possession beyond his first few years of eligibility for arbitration and free agency. Los Angeles has been quietly negotiating with Trouts representatives throughout spring training, and the club closed the deal three days before opening day at Angel Stadium. Trout agreed on Feb. 26 to a $1 million, one-year contract for 2014, much more than the Angels were required to offer him. His new deal runs from 2015-20. The outfielder would have been eligible for arbitration for the first time after this season, and for free agency following the 2017 World Series. Now, he cant become a free agent until at least age 29. Its the latest big-money deal for the Angels, who are entering the third season of a $240 million, 10-year contract with first baseman Albert Pujols, the second season of a $125 million, five-year agreement with outfielder Josh Hamilton and the third season of an $85 million, five-year contract with pitcher Jered Weaver. But while the Angels deals for Pujols and Hamilton have been criticized for their lavish nature and the thirty-something sluggers ensuing lack of production, Los Angeles is locking up Trout early in an uncommonly promising career. Trouts contract isnt worth as much as Cabreras lavish deal in Detroit, but it still would allow Trout to hit free agency at an age when he could still be in the prime of his career. And when his new deal ends, Trout will still be younger than the 30-year-old Cabrera is now. Trouts average salary of $24,083,333 under the new deal is ninth in the majors, trailing only those of Clayton Kershaw, Cabrera, Alex Rodriguez, Justin Verlander, Ryan Howard, Hamilton, Felix Hernandez and Zack Greinke. Trout is batting .314 with 62 homers and 196 RBIs in just 336 career games, including 40 games in 2011. The speedy centre fielder also has stolen 86 bases while playing stellar defence and making two All-Star teams, starting for the AL last summer. He is one of four players in baseball history to bat .320 with 50 homers and 200 runs in his first two full seasons, joining Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams and Pujols. Trout has accomplished just about everything except team success during his short major league career. The Angels have missed the playoffs in four consecutive seasons, and they finished 78-84 last year, their worst record in a decade. The deal provides huge security for Trout. He received a bonus of $1,215,000 when he signed after the Angels selected him with the 25th overall pick in the 2009 amateur draft. He made $482,500 two years ago and earned a $10,000 bonus for winning the rookie award, then was unilaterally renewed by the Angels last year at $510,000 -- $20,000 above the big league minimum at the time. That deal sparked criticism from many Angels fans who thought Trout deserved more compensation for his outstanding play. They also worried the relatively meagre deal -- and the Angels decision to move Trout from his preferred centre field to left last season -- might sour the budding superstar on the team. Trout is back in centre field this season, and Moreno made sure Trout couldnt doubt the Angels financial commitment to him. cheap jerseys from china .

"Theres nothing I can complain about," manager Bruce Bochy said. The Giants completed their fourth sweep of the season. jerseys from china Bargain . -- Henrik Zetterberg didnt wait long to make an impact in his first game back from injury.While reading this week that two very good players - Lance Berkman and Michael Young - had decided to retire, I started to wonder about the perfect way to go out. Berkman and Young both could have kept on playing, but decided the time was right. Ive alway been fascinated by Ted Williams final at-bat for the Red Sox. He homered off Jack Fisher of the Orioles in the bottom of the 8th at Fenway Park on September 28, 1960. "The Spendid Splinter" trotted out to left field for the start of the 9th, whereby his manager Mike Higgins took him out of the game so he could get one last ovation from the fans in the Bosox final home game of the season. Boston rallied for two in the bottom of the 9th to win 5-4. Williams opted to retire immediately and did not go to New York for the final series of the season against the pennant-winning Yankees. So Williams, arguably the best hitter of all time, ended his career with a home run. What I was surprised to discover is this isnt nearly as rare as I thought it would be. Twenty-three American League players have homered in their final at-bat and 22 have done it in the National League. The last to do it was Jim Edmonds on September 21, 2010. A couple of others who accomplished the feat had Blue Jays connections. Wille Mays Aikens slugged his final homer in a Jays uniform on April 27, 1985, and Tony Kubek, star shortstop with the Yankees who later worked on Blue Jays telecasts, homered in his final big league at-bat on October 3, 1965. The saddest of all though was the home run hit by Hall of Fame catcher Mickey Cochrane on May 25, 1937 off the Yankees Bump Hadley. Next time up in the game, Hadley nailed the Tigers player-manager in the head with a pitch. His skull was fractured, and it was weeks before Cochrane recovered. He never played again so for the record, his final official at-bat was also a home run. Mickey - for whom Mickey Mantle was named - returned and finished out the 1937 season as manager only of the Tigers before calling it quits at the end of that season. Cochranes .320 career batting average for a catcher was the all-time record, until the Twins Joe Mauer broke it in 2009. Hitting a home run in your first Major League at-bat is far more common. It has been accomplished 113 times - 47 in the American League and 66 in the National. Twenty-eight were hit on the very first pitch the batter saw. Four were grand slams and 19 of those who homered in their first Major League at-bats never hit another one in their entire careers. Three Blue Jays homered in their first at-bats. Al Woods hit a pinch homer in the Blue Jays first-ever game on April 7, 1977. Junior Felix followed that up nearly a dozen years later on May 4, 1989. J.P. Arencibia, the last in the trio, did it more than 11 years after Felix on August 7, 2010. All three homered on the first pitches they saw. This is the real rarity though, and I didnt even realize it had ever happened before. There are actually two players inn Major League history who slugged homers in their first and last Major League at-bats. cheap jerseys china. John Miller, a journeyman first baseman who later played five years in Japan, played parts of two seasons in the Majors back in the 60s. His first was with the Yankees where he hit a homer in his first Major League at-bat and then on September 23, 1969, he connected in his final Major League at-bat for the Dodgers. Oddly enough these were also his only two Major League homers. The first to accomplish the feat was a catcher by the name of Paul Gillespie who was a back-up catcher with the Chicago Cubs during the Second World War in 1942, 44 and 45. He connected for his first in 1942 and then belted his final home run in his final regular season at-bat on September 29, 1945. If you want to add a caveat to Gillespies mark, he did play in the World Series for the Cubs in 1945 - their last World Series appearance - and went hitless in the three games he played. I started with Ted Williams, so let me add this personal footnote. Im not old enough to have seen Ted Williams play in person, however there is a bit of a connection. The first Major League game(s) I ever saw was a doubleheader at old Tiger Stadium in August of 1968 against the Chicago White Sox. Pitching for Chicago in that first game was the man who gave up that final home run to Williams, Jack Fisher. He was nearing the end of his career which would wind up the following season in Cincinnati. This particular night in Detroit wasnt good for Fisher. He only lasted four innings and wound up taking the loss. Strangely enough he gave up a home run to the Tigers Gates Brown. Brown, a veteran by this time, is one of the 47 American Leaguers to homer in their first bat and so it comes full circle. Dud of a Deal Michael Youngs retirement re-ignites the debate over the worst trade in Blue Jays history. This one just might be it. The Jays sent third base prospect Young to Texas along with swing reliever Darwin Cubillan for right-hander Esteban Loaiza. Esteban was supposed to help round out the rotation when he was picked up on July 17, 2000 for a Blue Jays playoff push under manager Jim Fregosi. Instead Loaiza went 5-7 the rest of the way and was basically a non-factor. Adding on the next two seasons with the Jays, he went 25-28 with a 4.96 ERA. Then in 1993, he had the best year of career after signing with the White Sox, winning 21 games and coming close to winning the Cy Young Award. Young, meanwhile, played 14 seasons, was versatile enough to play all four infield positions and wound up with a career .300 batting average. Hes not a Hall of Famer by any means but was a classy talented player who would have been of far greater value to the Blue Jays than Loaiza was. Michael Youngs best friend in his early years in the Jays organiztion was Vernon Wells. Still not sure yet if Vernon is going to try to play out the final year of his contract or like Young, call it a career. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

Topic : He was not activated for the game

The crowd may want to look ahead. Cheap NFL Jerseys . And my friends in the media are already asking That Question. But Graham DeLaet isnt ready to look beyond his first tee shot on Saturday. After equaling the course record on Friday, you can forgive everyone for getting a little excited about the possibilities. You know, the chance that this damn 60-year drought can come to an end. It would be a great moment for Canadian golf, a great moment for DeLaet and, selfishly, a great moment for the keyboard tappers and microphone holders who would no longer have to ask That Question any longer. But lets back up just a bit here. Its not Sunday, yet. DeLaet ignited everyones imagination of just what the coronation might look like by posting a smooth 63. For the first time in a while, his putter behaved as he used his flat stick just 25 times when on the green. That, he said, was the result of some work he did earlier in the week with short game coach Gabriel Hjertstedt. The two of them came up with one small change that, as it often does with something as confounding as putting, made a big difference. "My putting coach was here Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday," said DeLaet. "We put in some good work and changed a little bit of how I was seeing lines. I was picking spots in front of the ball instead of picking spots at the hole. Just something a little bit different and it was nice to see some putts rolling in." To a certain extent, DeLaet will always live and die with his putting. Its his Achilles heel in an otherwise bulletproof golf game. Just look at the stats for this year – hes second in greens in regulation, 11th in driving distance, fifth in total driving and – wait for it – 137th in strokes gained, putting, the key indicator of how a player performs on the greens. But on this day, he was pure. He drained a 30-footer on 14 for a birdie, another one from 21 feet on the first hole and sunk a 20-footer to save a bogey on the 18th hole. That last one might be the most vital of the many that found the bottom of the cup. Playing his ninth hole of the day and already four under for the round, DeLaet drove his ball into the water, took a drop then hit his next shot up the fairway. From there he lofted a wedge onto the green. "I was kind of counting a double when I was walking up to the 18th green," he said, "so to hole that putt was a nice bonus." Its been a while since DeLaet has enjoyed such a good day with his putter, but he wasnt alone in getting the balls to drop. "It was definitely fun to see some putts roll in," he said. "All of us were kind of making putts all day." All of us would be his group of Matt Kuchar and Jim Furyk; the trio combined for 22 birdies. Furyk also tied the course record, held by Scott Verplank and David Morland IV. "There was just so much momentum," he stated. "The crowd was getting behind us. Even Matt and Jim, the crowd was starting to get behind them. They were just seeing such good golf all day. You definitely start feeding off each other and you almost expect to hole putts just to keep up." While DeLaet loved the emotion displayed by the fans at Royal Montreal – the vast majority on the property seemed to be following his group – and the way he played, he was careful not to start thinking about buying any silver polish just yet. The player who has yet to win a tournament on the PGA Tour is savvy enough to realize that it might take two more course records to get his name on the trophy. "I know theres going to be a little bit of added pressure because Im in good position heading into the weekend," said DeLaet. "But at the same time were only half way through this thing and if I can put something together like this [Saturday] then maybe we can start talking about that." Maybe for him. But in the brasseries and bistros and the dix-neuf holes, theyre already chatting. As they have been for oh, about 60 years. Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China . The Nets continued their winning ways Tuesday by sweeping a back-to-back set for the first time this season, beating the Orlando Magic 101-90 a night after routing the crosstown rival New York Knicks. Wholesale NFL Jerseys . The assistants greeted Aldridge with compliments and high fives. Stotts had only one word for his high-scoring forward: "Thanks." Aldridge had 25 points and 16 rebounds in his return after missing seven games with a lower back contusion, and the Trail Blazers beat the Atlanta Hawks 100-85 on Thursday night to end a three-game losing streak.SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- It certainly wasnt an ideal way to start an important road trip. The Washington Wizards squandered an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter and eventually lost in overtime to the lowly Sacramento Kings. Isaiah Thomas had his first career triple double with 24 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists to help the Kings beat the Wizards 117-111 in overtime on Tuesday night. DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay each added 24 points for the Kings, who rallied in the fourth to send the game into overtime and simply outplayed the Wizard in the extra period to snap a two-game losing streak. Veteran centre Marcin Gortat felt the Wizards let up late in regulation and it cost them a victory. "We were up five points (with 24 seconds left) and celebrating like we had already won the game," said Gortat, who had a physical battle all game with Cousins, the Kings highly aggressive young centre. "We loosened up way too much. We got punished for being too cocky." It was a rare loss for the Wizards, who had won 10 of 13 games before falling to the Kings for the fourth straight time at Sleep Train Arena. After being quiet through three quarters, it was Gay and Cousins delivering big time for the Kings in both the fourth period and overtime. Cousins, who finished with 14 rebounds, had 12 points in the fourth quarter and opened the overtime with two quick baskets and finished with seven points in OT. Gay made numerous clutch shots late in the game and continued that trend in the fourth quarter. He had 10 points in the fourth and six more in overtime. "To turn it around, go up by 11 points and give the game away, it hurts," said Drew Gooden, who scored 18 points in a reserve role. "They executed down the stretch and we couldnt get any rebounds. DeMarcus Cousins is a load." Bradley Beal had 19 points and Gortat also had 19 points and 14 rebounds for the Wizards. They had won six of their previous seven road games. John Wall had 14 before fouling out in overtime. The loss prevented Washington from moving within a game of Chicago, which has the fourth best record in the Eastern Conference. The Wizards (35-32) drop to sixth in tthe East, one percentage point behind Brooklyn (34-31). Cheap Jerseys. . "Give (Washington coach) Randy Wittman and that team a lot of credit. They are one of the surprising teams in the Eastern Conference and they are trying to get a home-court advantage in the first round," Kings coach Michael Malone said. Gay broke a tie with a jumper and Thomas made a pair of free throws to give Sacramento a 115-111 lead with 13 seconds left. Thomas clinched the victory with two free throws in the closing seconds. Thomas, a 5-foot-9 guard who was a second-round draft pick three years ago, became the Kings starting point guard early this season and has responded by scoring 20 or more points 42 times this season. The triple-double was the first for Sacramento since Cousins had had one against New York on Dec. 28, 2012. "That was big and its great for Isaiah," Gay said. "Im proud of him for the fact that he effected the game in every successful category today. Size doesnt matter. He plays with fire." Trailing by five points in overtime, Ariza hit a 3, Wall converted on a fastbreak layup and Beal made a 3-pointer, giving Washington a 109-107 lead. But consecutive baskets by Cousins and Gay put the Kings ahead by two with 1:01 left. Beal made both free throws to put the Wizards in front 100-95. But a Thomas three and a running shot along the baseline by Gay tied the game at 100 with 5.6 seconds remaining. Beal missed a jumper in the final seconds. Washington started the fourth quarter with eight straight points to take an 81-70 lead. Cousins helped bring the Kings back, scoring eight consecutive points, the final two on a dunk that cut the Washington lead to 86-81 midway through the fourth. NOTES: The Washington starters shot 5 of 20 in the opening quarter and the Wizards trailed 30-19. ... Prior the game, the Kings signed Royce White to a second 10-day contact. He was not activated for the game. White, who was drafted by Houston in 2012, has been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and has never played an NBA game. ... Webster had a four-point play late in the third quarter. ... The Kings are 4-2 in overtime games this season, while the Wizards are 4-7. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

Topic : .Minnesota plays at Vancouver on Monday

Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. cheap nfl jerseys . This week they discuss Edmonton leaking oil, quiet diplomacy in soccer, taking charge of the Lakers and that "Minor League Guy on Third". Bruce Arthur, The Globe and Mail: My thumb is down to the Edmonton Oilers, who appeared to see the disasters unfolding in Toronto and Montreal this week and decided they wanted in. First it was revealed that 20-year-old star Taylor Hall was allowed to play all season with a shoulder that required surgery; well sure, when youre as close to the Cup as the Oilers, whats more important than that? But then the Oilers attempted to recall a player from Oklahoma City, only to put him right back on a plane when the NHL told them they were out of recalls. Whatever the reason, it made it look like the Oilers couldnt count to four. Which is strange, because they keep finishing 30th. Cathal Kelly, Toronto Star: My thumb is up to Toronto FC defender Ashtone Morgan for his use of quiet diplomacy this week. At the very death of Wednesday nights game, Morgan received an out-of-nowhere headbutt from Santos Laguna player Darwin Quintero. Seconds later, there was a near brawl at midfield. FC travels to Mexico on Wednesday for the return leg in what is one of that countrys most violent urban areas. Seven months ago, Santos stadium was cleared in a panic after a nearby gun battle. This is not the sort of place you want to rile up. Asked about the sucker-shot Morgan smiled, pointed to the welt on his forehead and said, "he got me. He got a nice one." No threats, no hysterics, only a bemused smile. Morgans calming reaction proves that some of these guys understand that there can be more than a game at stake. Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated: My thumb is up Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown for his uncommon display of spine. Brown is aware he works in a players league where the star system is sacred. But that didnt stop him from twice championing the role of team play last week. First he had the temerity to bench Kobe Bryant for a few minutes in the fourth quarter because he forced up a shot. Two days later, the coach yanked centre Andrew Bynum after an ill-advised three-point attempt. Brown was a doormat when he coached in Cleveland, basically allowing LeBron James to set the agenda. Now he is attempting to alter a time-tested NBA dynamic. What can Brown do for you? In this case: the right thing. Dave Hodge, TSN: Thumbs up to Oscar Taveras. You might not know Oscar Taveras by his real name, but rather, by his television name--"Minor League Guy on Third", Thats how he was identified--graphically-- by Fox Sports Midwest during a St. Louis Cardinals spring training telecast. Funny or insulting? Take your pick… and insulting won the day when it was explained that Taveras is a blue-chip prospect who is expected to make a real name for himself in the coming years. If and when he does, hell be more famous because he was snubbed as a 19-year-old by a television producer who should have known him, or should have known better. Hes famous enough already--hes "Minor League Guy on Third". nfl jerseys china . Louis is going to get a chance to represent his country at the Winter Olympics after all. cheap jerseys ." The announcement from Rutgers President Robert Barchi, who said there was a "miscommunication" about the speeches, is the latest development in a strange saga surrounding the May 18 ceremony. The New Jersey university initially announced that former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would give the keynote address, and school officials maintained that she would not be "disinvited" as some students and faculty protested her selection, including holding a sit-in last week. Dallas, TX (Sports Network) - Kari Lehtonen needed to make just 14 stops for his first shutout of the season as the Dallas Stars handled the Minnesota Wild, 4-0, at American Airlines Center. Mike Ribeiro had a goal and an assist while Trevor Daley, Jamie Benn and Tom Wandell each scored for the Stars, who have won three of their last four. Were not trying to do too much, not trying to be too fancy, said Lehtonen. We got some guys playing good out there and seems like they can do whatever they like. It works and were finding success. Jose Theodore gave up four goals on 31 shots for the Wild, who have lost three of their past four games, including a 4-0 blanking at the hands of Nashville on Thursday. Just like any loss its tough, said Minnesota. You know, we lose to Nashville last night and its four points we missed out on. Benn scored his 19th goal of the season with 7:58 left in the first period and Lehtonen stopped four shots to help the Stars take a 1-0 lead into thee second period. wholesale jerseys. In a span of 1:31 in the later stages of the second, the Stars took control of the game. The first came with 4:08 to play as a pass by Daley at the left side of the net hit off the stick of a Wild defender and went in. Just over a minute later, the Stars made it a 3-0 game as Wandells snap-shot from the right circle beat Theodore low for his sixth goal of the season. A mere 18 seconds later, Dallas took a 4-0 lead off a miscue from Minnesota as a defender blindly threw the puck out front from behind the net and Ribeiro one-timed home the gift. Lehtonen stopped seven shots in the second and needed to make just three in the third for the whitewash. GAME NOTES:Lehtonen has 15 shutouts in his career...Dallas has taken all three games against Minnesota and six straight. These two will play each other on the final day of the regular season in Saint Paul...Dallas hosts Los Angeles on Sunday...Minnesota plays at Vancouver on Monday. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

SEATTLE -- After getting on base with a one-out single in the ninth inning, Texas Elvis Andrus had permission to take chances. Atlanta Falcons Deion Sanders Mens Road Jersey Elite Nike NFL White . Andrus understood trying to take down Seattle ace Felix Hernandez required being aggressive just to get one run. "Especially when you face a guy like that, when hes on, its going to be hard," Andrus said. "For whoever is hitting its going to be hard to get good contact, a base hit." Locked in a scoreless tie, Andrus singled, stole two bases and scored on Adrian Beltres infield grounder in the ninth as the Rangers did just enough against Hernandez for a 1-0 win over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night. Andrus singled with one out, then proceeded to steal second and third base. The second stolen base came as Shin-Soo Choo walked on a 3-2 pitch from Hernandez and was the final batter for Seattles ace. Closer Fernando Rodney entered and got Beltre to hit a grounder into the hole at shortstop. Brad Miller fielded the ground ball and was able to get Choo at second, but Robinson Canos turn on the double play attempt was rushed and the throw was wide. Beltre was safe, Andrus scored and Texas got the run it needed. "The difference was the base hit to Andrus and he stole the two bases," Hernandez said. "That was the difference of the game." Texas handed Hernandez (8-2) just his second loss of the season and the Rangers have now handed him 21 of his career losses. "Its just a win. We see King Felix a lot so its just a win," Texas manager Ron Washington said. "I wouldnt put any more credence to it than what it was." Matching Hernandez was Texas starter Nick Tepesch and a trio of relievers. Tepesch threw 6 1-3 innings, Jason Frasor finished off the seventh, Shawn Tolleson (2-1) got through the eighth and Joakim Soria pitched the ninth for his 14th save. Texas posted its 13th shutout and fourth 1-0 victory this season. Seattle lost its fourth straight. Tepesch matched Hernandez all night. He faced the minimum through five innings and used just 47 pitches to set down the first 15 batters. The only batter to reach for Seattle was Mike Zunino with a single leading off the third inning. Zunino lined a ground-rule double into the Mariners bullpen leading off the sixth, the first baserunner by either team to reach second base but was left stranded at third. Tepesch started struggling in the seventh. With two on and one out, Tepesch was lifted in favour of Frasor who struck out pinch-hitter Endy Chavez looking and Dustin Ackley swinging to end the inning. Tolleson worked a perfect eighth to get the victory. Soria then shut down the top of Seattles order in the bottom of the ninth. He struck out James Jones, got a groundout from Kyle Seager and Cano grounded back to the mound for the final out. "I dont really try and focus on who I am throwing against," Tepesch said. "Its more about the hitters Im facing. I cant control his throwing or how well theyre going to throw or maybe theyre going to have a bad day. Its just controlling what I can control." Hernandez was coming off a career-best 15 strikeout performance in his last outing against Tampa Bay. Hernandez dominated the Rays, but didnt get the victory because Seattles offence failed to score while he was on the mound. An identical scenario played out against Texas. Hernandez was just as dominant -- minus the strikeouts -- and the Mariners again failed to provide their ace any runs. Hernandez was at 98 pitches beginning the ninth. He finished with six strikeouts, four hits allowed and one run. It was an improvement over his last start against Texas when he gave up three runs in six innings. "Big deal. It was still a lousy game," Hernandez said. NOTES: Seattle OF/DH Corey Hart (hamstring) hit on the field before the game for the first time since being injured on May 18. ... Rangers RHP Derek Holland (knee surgery) threw live batting practice on Friday. Hes scheduled to throw another live BP session on Wednesday. ...

Topic : Hes completed 58.9% of his passes this season for 603 yards,

Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Adrian Gonzalez finished 3-for-4 with a double and the go-ahead home run in the fifth inning, as Boston routed Milwaukee, 10- 4, in the opener of a three-game interleague set from Fenway Park. Kevin Love Cavaliers . Kevin Youkilis and J.D. Drew each drove in two runs, while Jacoby Ellsbury homered and David Ortiz collected three hits and an RBI for the Red Sox, who have won three in a row and 12 of their last 13. John Lackey (5-5) worked eight innings for the win, yielding eight hits and four runs with five strikeouts. Its fun to pitch here for sure, but weve got to swing the bats, Lackey said. Thats one thing you hang your hat on when youre out there if you give up a couple runs, just hang in there because the boys are coming, they can really swing it. Casey McGehee drove in two runs and Prince Fielder had two hits and an RBI for the Brewers, losers in four of their last five. Marco Estrada (1-4) allowed three runs on four hits with two walks in four relief frames. Shaun Marcum started but recorded only three outs, charged with four hits and two runs on 44 pitches. He left the game with a left hip flexor strain. I think anytime you lose a guy that has been as good as him in a ballgame that early against a great team, yeah its tough, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. Gonzalez snapped a 4-4 deadlock, leading off the fifth against Estrada by clearing the Green Monster, then Boston took a 7-4 edge in the sixth. Daniel Ray Herrera came in but issued a leadoff walk to Drew and served up Jason Variteks RBI double. After an Ellsbury groundout, Dustin Pedroias seeing-eye single through the right side plated another run. The Sox then extended their lead to 10-4 in the seventh. Drew Sutton -- called up for injured regular shortstop Jed Lowrie and inserted into the game when Youkilis left with an intestinal issue -- led off with a double. Ortiz followed with a single, and when Darnell McDonalds grounder ticked off the top of Brewers shortstop Craig Counsells glove, Sutton scored. After a sacrifice bunt put two runners in scoring position, Drew singled in both. Lackey finished his outing by retiring the side in order in the eighth and Matt Albers did the same in the ninth. Milwaukee scored twice in its first at-bat on a two-run single from McGehee, but Boston countered with two in the home half on an Ellsbury homer to right and an RBI double from Ortiz. Youkilis put the Sox ahead with a two-run hit in the second off Estrada, but the Brewers responded in the third on a Fielder RBI single and a double-play grounder from McGehee. GAME NOTES:This was the first meeting between the teams since the Sox swept a three-game series at Fenway from May 17-18, 2008...Prior to the game, the Red Sox announced that reliever Jonathan Papelbon had his three-game suspension for contact with an umpire was reduced to two games...Papelbon will serve the ban on Friday and Saturday...The Sox also placed Lowrie on the 15-day disabled list and recalled Sutton from Triple-A Pawtucket...Boston leftfielder Carl Crawford left the game in the second inning with what was later termed a Grade 1 hamstring strain. Terrell Brandon Jersey . Greg Chase and Kenton Helgesen also scored for the Hitmen (18-7-4), who extended their win streak to five games, while Brady Brassart chipped in with two assists. Mike Miller Cavaliers . This week they discuss the NHL paying Wayne Gretzky, fighting in hockey, the "Group of Death" and the Buffalo Sabres disaster season. Josh Gordon emerging as a superstar receiver, Carson Palmer and the Cardinals passing attack, Nick Foles rare ratio, more Manning greatness; also Newton, Brady, Gronkowski, Jeffery, Decker and more in Scott Cullens 50 Points on NFL Week 13. 1. Lions WR Calvin Johnson (6 REC, 101 YDS, 1 TD, 10 targets) leads receivers with 1,299 yards and 12 touchdowns, though his 118.1 receiving yards per game ranks second behind Clevelands Josh Gordon. Gordon (10 REC, 261 YDS, 2 TD, 15 targets) is emerging as a superstar, putting up huge numbers even with Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden at quarterback. 2. Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (24-for-41, 302 YDS, 3 TD, 2 INT, 1 fumble) had his third consecutive 300-yard passing game, a feat he only accomplished once before -- last November with Oakland. This year, its happening for a team that is in playoff contention and Palmer is doing his part to contribute to that success. The emergence of second-year Cardinals WR Michael Floyd (5 REC, 99 YDS, 1 TD, 10 targets) is playing a big part in Palmers hot streak. Floyd has 18 catches (28 targets) for 396 yards in the last three weeks. During the same period, Larry Fitzgerald has 16 catches (28 targets) for 185 yards, though Fitzgerald has four touchdowns compared to Floyds two. 3. Eagles QB Nick Foles (21-for-34, 237 YDS, 3 TD, 0 INT) is up to 19 touchdown passes without an interception, prompting head coach Chip Kelly to annoint him the starter for the next 1,000 years. No one in the modern era has come close to finishing a season with zero interceptions and this many TD passes. The best modern era single-season TD-INT ratio with two or fewer interceptions, in at least 10 games, belongs to Damon Huard, who had 11 touchdowns and one interception for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2006. 4. Broncos QB Peyton Manning (22-for-35, 403 YDS, 5 TD, 2 INT) is making a mockery of the MVP race. With 41 touchdown passes, Manning has a chance to challenge Tom Bradys record 50 touchdown passes, set in 2007 (which is one more than Manning had for Indianapolis in 2004). 5. Panthers QB Cam Newton (18-for-29, 263 YDS, 2 TD, 2 INT; 68 YDS, 1 TD, 5 carries) is tied for ninth among quarterbacks with 19 touchdown passes, but hes been involved in 25 total touchdowns (rushing for six), which ranks fourth, behind Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Matthew Stafford. 6. Since throwing for 116 yards in Week Eight against Miami, Patriots QB Tom Brady (29-for-41, 371 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT) has resumed his place as one of the most productive quarterbacks in the game, passing for 1,443 yards and 10 touchdowns, with two interceptions, in the last four games. 7. Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (6 REC, 127 YDS, 1 TD, 12 targets) has 560 receiving yards in six games since returning to the lineup, good enough for 10th among tight ends this season. Gronks 93.3 yards per game leads them all, ahead of Jimmy Grahams 82.3 yards per game. For all the talk about how New England needed rookies or newcomer Danny Amendola to step up in the passing game, Patriots WR Julian Edelman (9 REC, 101 YDS, 12 targets) has been the leader of the group, catching 70 passes for 711 yards and four touchdowns, all of which lead (or, in the case of TDs, tie for the lead) the team. 8. Seattles defence locked down Saints QB Drew Brees (23-for-38, 147 YDS, 1 TD), who threw for his fewest yards in a game since December, 2006. 9. Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (12 REC, 249 YDS, 2 TD, 15 targets) is emerging as a star in his second season, and has more receiving yards than Brandon Marshall (1,109 to 990) and has added 115 rushing yards on 14 attempts. 10. Broncos WR Eric Decker (8 REC, 174 YDS, 4 TD, 12 targets), who would have been the third Denver receiver picked in most drafts, now ranks 11th in receiving yards among wide receivers. 11. Raiders WR Andre Holmes (7 REC, 136 YDS, 11 targets) had three catches for 65 yards all season before he was turned loose against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, taking advantage of Denarius Moores injury to establish that he could be a bona fide threat. Holmes is 6-foot-5, out of Hillsdale College, and spent the last couple seasons on the fringes of the Dallas Cowboys roster, dressing for seven games in 2012. 12. Falcons WR Roddy White (10 REC, 143 YDS, 14 targets) may finally -- finally -- be over the high-ankle sprain that has plagued him all year. Sundays breakout was the first time all year that White had more than five catches or 50 yards receiving. 13. Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (211 YDS, 35 carries) is making a second-half charge up the rushing list, with 357 rushing yards in the last two weeks. His 67 carries the last two weeks is his most in back-to-back games, beating the 59 carries he had in the last two weeks of last season, when he was making a push to catch Eric Dickersons single-season rushing record. 14. Lions QB Matthew Stafford (22-for-35, 330 YDS, 3 TD, 2 INT, 1 fumble) accumulates a lot of yards, sometimes because hes making up for deficits created by turnovers, but Peyton Manning is the only one with more passing yards than Staffords 3,825 and Manning (41) and Drew Brees (29) are the only ones with more touchdown passes than Staffords 27. 15. Lions RB Reggie Bush (182 YDS, 1 TD, 1 fumble, 25 touches) is up to 1,302 yards from scrimmage this season, which ranks fifth. On a per-game basis, Bushs 118.4 yards per game ranks third among runners. Joique Bell (128 YDS, 1 TD, 22 touches), Bushs backup, ranks 20th in yards from scrimmage, with 813. 16. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson (22-for-30, 310 YDS, 3 TD) has thrown multiple touchdown passes in six straight games, a span during which he has 14 touchdowns and two interceptions. 17.Bears RB Matt Forte (151 YDS, 25 touches) ranks third in yards from scrimmage with 1,416 and is on pace to beat his career-high of 1,715 yards from scrimmage, set in his rookie season, 2008. Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (115 YDS, 24 touches) continues to lead in yards from scrimmage this season, with 1,523, 60 yards ahead of Kansas City RB Jamaal Charles (120 YDS, 1 TD, 21 touches). 18. Steelers RB LeVeon Bell (136 YDS, 1 TD, 23 touches) had a strong game against Baltimore on Thanksgiving before suffering a concussion as he nearly scored his second touchdown of the game. Bell hopes to get back in the lineup, but if he cant, Jonathan Dwyer and Felix Jones are next on the depth chart. Dwyer and Jones havent played much, though, combining for a total of 14 touches in the last three games. 19. Panthers TE Greg Olsen (5 REC, 85 YDS) has done it quietly, but ranks seventh among tight ends with 611 receiving yards this season. Since the start of last season, Jimmy Graham, Jason Witten and Tony Gonzalez are the only tight ends with more receiving yards than Olsen. 20. Since 2007, Texans WR Andre Johnson (8 REC, 121 YDS, 9 targets) leads the NFL with 94.7 receiving yards per game, six yards per game ahead of Detroits Calvin Johnson. 21. Chiefs QB Alex Smith (26-for-42, 293 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT; 46 YDS, 4 carries) cant compare to Peyton Manning, but hes been productive enough, throwing for 817 yards and seven touchdowns with two interceptions in the last three weeks -- all Chiefs losses. Smith also completed passes to 11 different receivers against Denver Sunday. 22. Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (28-for-43, 331 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT) passed for a season-high 331 yards against the Jets and it was the first time in his career that he threw for 300 yards and multiple touchdowns in the same game. 23. 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (19-for-28, 275 YDS, 1 TD) has thrown for 510 yards and four touchdowns, with zero interceptions, in the last two weeks. Slight progress from a generally miserable passing season. 24. Bears QB Josh McCown (23-for-36, 355 YDS, 2 TD) passed for his most yards in a game since October, 2005, when he had back-to-back games with more than 380 yards passing for the Arizona Cardinals. McCown has passed for 707 yards and four touchdowns in the last two games. 25. There was some discussion among TSN.ca staffers about who should be the offensive rookie of the year and I made sure to mention Chargers WR Keenan Allen (8 REC, 106 YDS, 1 fumble, 10 targets), the third-rounnd pick who now has 843 receiving yards on the season, going over 100 yards in five of his last eight games played. LeBron James Cavaliers. . 26. Jaguars WR Ace Sanders (8 REC, 67 YDS, 11 targets) is becoming an active part of the Jacksonville passing game. Over the last three weeks, he has 20 catches (26 targets) for 189 yards and, naturally since he plays for the Jaguars, no touchdowns. 27. Dolphins WR Brian Hartline (9 REC, 127 YDS, 1 TD, 15 targets) had a season-high 127 receiving yards against the Jets and scored his first touchdown since Week Three, but hes been quietly productive this season. Hes averaging 67.0 receiving yards per game, which is right on track with last years 67.7 yards per game that led to a career-high 1,083 receiving yards. 28. Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (92 YDS, 19 touches) gets a lot of grief for his inconsistency, but 907 yards from scrimmage this season ranks 15th among running backs. 29. Titans RB Chris Johnson (101 YDS, 1 TD, 24 touches) went over 100 yards from scrimmage for the third time this season. Hes over 1,000 yards from scrimmage (1,042), but is on pace for a career-low in that category. 30. Texans RB Ben Tate (102 YDS, 3 TD, 22 carries) rushed for more than 100 yards for the first time since November, 2011 against Cleveland. With Arian Foster out, there is still a real opportunity for Tate to finish the year strong as the Texans lead back. 31. Falcons RB Steven Jackson (84 YDS, 2 TD, 23 carries) had his most productive game of the season Sunday, against the Bills in Toronto, which says something about how this year has gone for him, but Jackson does have 163 yards from scrimmage, with three touchdowns, in the last two weeks. 32. Ravens RB Ray Rice (70 YDS, 18 touches) had a season-high 38 receiving yards against Pittsburgh, yet it was still only the fifth time all season that he gained at least 70 yards from scrimmage. 33. Browns RB Willis McGahee (71 YDS, 1 TD, 16 touches) had his most productive game since rushing for 72 yards and a touchdown (on 26 carries) against Buffalo in Week Five. Cleveland thought that McGahee would be a suitable replacement for Trent Richardson and, turns out, they were right, but both have struggled this season. 34. Bills RB C.J. Spiller (157 YDS, 1 TD, 17 touches) delivered his most productive game of the season, yet Fred Jackson (78 YDS, 2 TD, 15 touches) was still eminently valuable for fantasy purposes. With more touches and more touchdowns, Jackson has been the more valuable of Buffalos running back duo, something that wasnt forecasted when Spiller was being talked about as a first-round fantasy pick. 35. With Stevan Ridley on the sidelines, Patriots RB Shane Vereen (75 YDS, 15 touches) made the most of the opportunity, while LeGarrette Blount (44 YDS, 1 TD, 12 carries) had a chance to get some regular work. Of course, fantasy owners note that James Develin (16 YDS, 1 TD, 3 touches) had the first two carries of his career, including New Englands lone touchdown run. 36. Bengals RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis (92 YDs, 1 TD, 1 fumble, 20 carries) and Giovani Bernard (66 YDS, 15 touches) continue to be a productive tandem, though BJGE gets a lot of touches for the less efficient runner. 37. Dolphins RB Lamar Miller (85 YDS, 23 touches) got a new chance with Daniel Thomas injured and made the most of it, with a productive game following a three-game stretch during which he accumulated 95 yards from scrimmage. 38. Cardinals RB Rashard Mendenhall (76 YDS, 18 carries) had season-highs in rushing yards and carries at Philadelphia, taking advantage of the opportunity presented when rookie Andre Ellington was sidelined with a knee injury. 39. Colts RB Donald Brown (64 YDS, 16 touches) has worked his way ahead of Trent Richardson in the Indianapolis backfield. Not a huge accomplishment, given Richardsons struggles, but Brown is becoming a viable option at FLEX. 40. Broncos RB Montee Ball (117 YDS, 13 carries) made the most of additional carries, while Knowshon Moreno (90 YDS, 1 TD, 19 touches) was still productive against the Chiefs. 41. Jets RB Chris Ivory (73 YDS, 13 touches) continues to hold the edge on Bilal Powell (59 YDS, 10 touches) in the New York backfield. The closeness of the competition, however, makes it difficult to count on much from either one from week to week. 42. Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (42 YDS, 16 touches) got a good opportunity with DeAngelo Williams hurt, but it was Mike Tolbert (89 YDS, 12 touches) who took advantage of the additional touches. 43. Eagles rookie TE Zach Ertz (5 REC, 68 YDS, 2 TD, 6 targets), a second-round pick, had the best game of his career to this point and while 342 yards and three touchdowns doesnt account for much this season, hes starting to takeo n a bigger role in the Eagles offence and those numbers should continue to rise with strong quarterback play. 44. Vikings QB Christian Ponder (3-for-8, 40 YDS) left Sundays win over Chicago with a concussion; Matt Cassel (20-for-33, 243 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT) was decent in relief, which helped WR Greg Jennings (7 REC, 78 YDS, 1 TD, 9 targets), who went over 70 yards receiving for only the third time this season. 45. Browns QB Brandon Weeden (24-for-40, 370 YDS, 3 TD, 2 INT, 1 fumble) passed for a career-high 370 yards and three touchdowns against Jacksonville, reaping the rewards of Josh Gordons breakout. 46. Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar (94 YDS, 13 touches) had 46 yards from scrimmage in Week 12, a career-high, then busted out against the Raiders for the best day of his career, only to end up tearing his posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in his knee, ending his season. DeMarco Murray (102 YDS, 3 TD, 22 touches) may have to handle more touches with Dunbar out, but Philip Tanner and Joseph Randle will compete for playing time in a reserve role. 47. Packers RB Eddie Lacy (39 YDS, 15 touches) is finding it more difficult to run when defences dont have to respect the Green Bay passing game. The 39 yards from scrimmage against Detroit was Lacys fewest in a game this season, aside from Week Two, when he suffered a concussion on his first carry. 48. Packers QB Matt Flynn (10-for-20, 139 YDS, 0 TD, 1 INT, 2 fumbles) has done quite the job of ensuring that his Game 16 performance in 2011 (31-for-44, 480 YDS, 6 TD, 1 INT in 45-41 win vs. Detroit) will be viewed as nothing more than a fluke. Hes completed 58.9% of his passes this season for 603 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions, good enough to be one of 32 backups in the league, but nothing to suggest that hes remotely ready for a starting job. 49. Jets QB Geno Smith (4-for-10, 29 YDS, 1 INT) continued to struggle and was replaced by Matt Simms (9-for-18, 79 YDS, 1 TD, 1 fumble). The decline in Smiths play over the last four weeks has dramatically altered the Jets playoff hopes, and not for the better. 50. Defensive players with productive games: Dolphins DE Olivier Vernon (10 tackles, 2.5 sacks); Raiders OLB Nick Roach (11 tackles, 2 sacks); Packers CB Sam Shields (8 tackles, 1 INT, 1 PD); Steelers OLB Jason Worilds (10 tackles, 2 sacks); Jaguars S Johnathan Cyprien (10 tackles, 1 sack); Colts ILB Jerrell Freeman (9 tackles, 1 INT); Bears DE Julius Peppers (8 tackles, 2.5 sacks); Vikings OLB Chad Greenway (10 tackles, 1 sack, 2 TFL); Jets FS Dawan Landry (14 tackles); ILB David Harris (13 tackles, 1 TFL); Cardinals OLB Karlos Dansby (9 tackles, 2 sacks); Cardinals DE Matt Shaughnessy (7 tackles, 1 sack, 3 TFL); Eagles MLB DeMeco Ryans (9 tackles, 1 sack, 1 TFL, 1 PD); Eagles FS Nate Allen (8 tackles, 1 INT); Buccaneers OLB Lavonte David (9 tackles, 1 INT, 1 TFL); Bills ILB Kiko Alonso (13 tackles, 1 PD); CB Leodis McKelvin (10 tackles, 3 PD); Rams DT Michael Brockers (7 tackles, 2 sacks); Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict (13 tackles), Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga (10 tackles, 1 sack); Chargers FS Eric Weddle (7 tackles, 1 INT, 1 FR, 1 TFL); Saints MLB Curtis Lofton (12 tackles, 2 TFL) Scott Cullen can be reached at Scott.Cullen@bellmedia.ca and followed on Twitter at http://twitter.com/tsnscottcullen.

Websters estate and 65 former players and their families sued the NFL in February, claiming the league hid information about the seriousness of concussions and head injuries sustained during their playing careers. Attorneys for the NFL and the plaintiffs filed a stipulation Friday to stay the case to see if it should join other concussion lawsuits currently assigned to a judge in Pennsylvania. Senior U.S. District Judge Anita Brody is considering whether a $765 million settlement is enough to resolve all claims against the NFL for players who are dealing with dementia and other serious cognitive conditions ccaused by concussions sustained during their pro careers. cheap jerseys. . Webster, who played for the Pittsburgh Steelers for most of his career, was instrumental in four of the teams Super Bowl victories in the 1970s. He died in 2002. Six of the players included in the case are deceased, including Steelers offensive linemen Terry Long and Justin Strzelczyk. The NFL declined to comment on the case. The lawsuit, like others filed against the NFL, claims the league hid evidence of the long-term damage players faced due to concussions and did not provide players with proper helmets. The players are also suing helmet-maker Riddell Inc. on claims that its helmets did not adequately protect players and that the company didnt warn players of the dangers of concussions. Riddell declined comment, citing a policy not to issue statements on pending lawsuits. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

Topic : he does have a no-trade clause

SAN DIEGO -- James Shields was on another road mound and thats a good thing for the Kansas City Royals. cheap jerseys . Then again, he really was at his home away from home. "It was nice to sleep in my own bed last night," Shields said after pitching Kansas City past the San Diego Padres 8-0 Wednesday. Shields (4-3) won at Petco Park, which isnt far from his residence in Rancho Santa Fe. "I got to play with the dog and see the kids for the first time in about a month," Shields said. "It was really nice to be around the house." Shields wasnt a welcome sight for the San Diego batters, scattering seven hits over seven innings. With Eric Hosmer driving in a season-high four runs and the Royals scoring three times in the first inning, Shields was able to win with less than his best. "I didnt think my stuff way that good today," said Shields, who threw a season-high 118 pitches. "I was all over the place, getting behind in counts a lot. It was a grind day, but sometimes you got to go out there without your good stuff and compete and that is what I did." Padres ace Andrew Cashner (2-5) didnt see the fifth inning. "Were kind of in a team-wide funk," Cashner said. The Royals are headed the opposite direction. They won their second straight game, took their first series at Petco Park and snapped a five-game losing skid since rolling into town. "That was what you call an AAGG -- an all-around good game in all phases," Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. "Shields was fantastic, the bullpen was great, our defence was solid and we had very, very good baserunning. And our offence had as good as a day as we have had against a darn good young pitcher in a long time." For a good stretch, Shields, who struck out four and walked two, has been tough on the road. Hes won four straight starts away from Kauffmann Stadium and since the start of last season is 14-4 with a 2.00 ERA. Hosmer got three hits. He finished the series going 7 for 15 with seven RBIs, a homer and a double. "The power numbers will come," Hosmer said. "Im not worried about that. Its early in the season and right now Im just doing anything to help this team win." "The biggest thing today was coming up with runners in scoring position and getting guys in," he said. The Padres scuffled, not having any better luck against two relievers after Shields exited. They were shut out for a major league-high sixth time this season. San Diego has lost six of eight overall. Cashner, who lasted a season-low four innings, had trouble from the start. He threw 43 pitches in the first, hurt by a pair of errors from shortstop Everth Cabrera that led to two unearned runs. "I feel bad for my teammate, for Cashner," Cabrera said. Alcides Escobar reached when Cabrera misplayed his ground ball after Nori Aoki opened with a single. Hosmer hit a two-run single, Alex Gordon reached base two batters later when Cabrera mishandled his grounder and Danny Valencia followed with a broken-bat, RBI single. Cashner ended the inning by getting Shields to ground out with the bases loaded in a nine-pitch at-bat. "That was the best AB of the game," Hosmer said. The Padres had a chance to cut into their deficit in the second when they got three hits. But Cameron Maybin was too aggressive rounding second base on an infield single, and Escobar slid in behind from shortstop, took Hosmers throw from first base and made the tag. Padres manager Bud Black requested a review, but the call stood. It marked the first time in five appeals this season that Black had lost. The Padres tied a season high with three errors, and had a passed ball and wild pitch in allowing four unearned runs. NOTES: Padres 3B Chase Headley (strained right calf) will play for Single-A Lake Elsinore on Thursday and Friday. He could be activated for Saturdays game against the Marlins. ... Padres OF Carlos Quentin is with Triple-A El Paso for at least two games and then will be re-evaluated. Quentin has been on the DL all season with knee problems. ... Royals 2B Omar Infante was out of the lineup with a sore back. He was replaced by Danny Valencia, one of three Royals with three hits. ... The Padres open a four-game series with the Marlins on Thursday with RHP Ian Kennedy (2-4, 3.43) facing RHP Jacob Turner (0-0, 9.90). ... The Royals play Seattle on Thursday as LHP Danny Duffy (1-2, 2.19 ERA) goes against Mariners RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (1-0, 5.40). nfl jerseys china . A few changes have been made this year, as RDS will no longer be producing it. Instead, the Canadiens have hired their own team of creative masterminds to produce the reality series. wholesale jerseys .J. -- If people were looking for Richard Sherman to get the weeklong hype for the Super Bowl started with another rant, the Seattle cornerback disappointed them.Got a question on the latest news and rumours? E-mail Hockey Insider Darren Dreger and hell answer your emails at dregereport@tsn.ca! Hey Darren, I heard you talking about the possibility of the GMs talking about Phillys counter to Tampas 1-3-1 in their next meeting. What do you think will be the starting point of that conversation and how could it play out? James,Victoria A: James, I have no doubt NHL general managers will discuss the 1-3-1 at length when they meet Tuesday in Toronto.  However, discussion and embracing change or new legislation are two very different things.  Admittedly, it was jarring to see the Philadelphia Flyers stop cold in their zone to offset the Lightnings reluctance to fore-check, but the 1-3-1 isnt new. Philadelphia has had success against it before, as have other teams, and it will be hard to develop a rule change to eliminate it.   As my colleague Bob McKenzie found out in a flash poll involving the majority of NHL GMs, opinion on this issue varies.  Some managers caution change based on the admission most teams play a 1-3-1 in some form and dont want to sound the alarm bells based on one game and the ground swell of reaction. Others fully support the need for discussion given the fact the NHL is an entertainment business and will argue what the hockey world witnessed on Wednesday was far from entertaining.  Its hard to guess how this will play out, although based on the feedback received in the past couple of days, I suspect little if anything will be done…at least on the short term. Pekka Rinne signed a seven-year, $49 million deal last week. Does this set any sort of precedent for Carey Price? Jen,Toronto A: Jen, its very likely Rinnes contract will be introduced as a comparable when negotiations on a new contract for Price commence in spring. However, like most negotiations enormous contracts like Rinnes are used as threshold examples but can quickly be brought down to a more team friendly average with lower paid goalies thrown into the mix as well.  Both Price and Rinne are elite goaltenders.  Rinne is considered a late bloomer, drafted in the 8th round of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, while Price, whose five years younger, was selected 5th overall in 2005 and quickly anointed the next great Habs goalie.  At the moment, Rinne is the better of the two, although the Predators are clearly on a roll and in Shea Weber and Ryan Suter, possess two of the most dominant defencemen in the NHL.  The Montreal Canadiens continue to struggle with consistency, so while Price may double the $2.75 million hes currently earning, as a restricted free agent next summer, its unlikely Montreal will have to climb into Rinne territory to get a deal done. Ken Hitchcock was rumoured to be in waiting to replace Scott Arniel in Columbus. Is the leash on Arniel and Howson llonger than most of us think? Kent,London, Ontario A: Kent, "rumoured" is the operative word. jerseys from china.   Hitchcock was on the Blue Jackets payroll and was asked to work with their AHL team as well as scout a number of the opposing teams Columbus faced.  Hence, he was visible and because of teams horrendous start, it was easy to leap to the possibility of a coaching change.  However, if returning Hitchcock to the Blue Jackets bench was a possibility, why would the organization grant the St Louis Blues permission to speak to and ultimately hire the veteran coach?   Obviously, Columbus is a hot spot right now and both Howson and Arniel are in jeopardy of losing their jobs.  However, as of today (Friday), Howson says its "status quo" in Columbus which means our game by game watch continues. Dregs, is it time for the Leafs to start shopping for a backup goalie? Are they even considering it? Danny,Toronto A:  Danny; like most scenarios, Im sure Torontos management team has discussed the possibility.  That said, the Maple Leafs have yet to hit a skid and while both Jonas Gustavsson and Ben Scrivens struggled this week in losses to Boston and Florida, both have also been very solid in relief of the injured James Reimer.   Reimer is expected to return to the ice soon according to his agent, Ray Petkau.  When he does, Toronto will have a tough decision to make.  Does Ben Scrivens get sent down after a stellar performance in a shootout victory over the St Louis Blues or is Scrivens a better option to push Reimer as the Leafs back up?  If Toronto decides to keep Scrivens, Gustavsson becomes a spare part with trade or waivers and the potential for AHL assignment a possibility. Hello Mr. Dreger, I have been wondering a lot about the status of Evgeni Nabokov, while it is almost a sure bet he will be dealt will the Isles deal him sooner rather than later or might they keep him longer in a attempt to up his value by playing him more and hoping he gets on a hot streak? What is the market for Nabby like right now and where do you think he might end up, and will it happen sooner or closer to the deadline? George, Regina Saskatchewan A: George; on Thursday night, speculation suggested the Columbus Blue Jackets were closing in on a deal with the Islanders for Nabokov.  However, both teams quickly squashed that rumour.  There is a market for Nabokov, but he does have a no-trade clause and the reality is goaltending and defence have been the two most consistent elements of the New York Islanders game.  Isles GM Garth Snow is among the more active managers when it comes to initiating or participating in trade discussions, but its still a tad too early to part with an asset that could fetch more in return later in the season.cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

LOS ANGELES, Calif. Anderson Varejao Cavaliers . - Raymond Floyd is returning to the Ryder Cup as an assistant captain for the second time in the past three matches. U.S. captain Tom Watson said Tuesday that Floyd would be one of his assistants. The Ryder Cup will be played Sept. 26-28 at Gleneagles and Scotland. The Americans have not won the cup since 2008 — Floyd was an assistant on that team. They have not won on European soil since 1993. Watson previously said Andy North would be an assistant. Floyd was the Ryder Cup captain in 1989 when Europe retained the cup with a tie. Watson was on that 89 team. Watson was captain in 1993 and took Floyd as one of his wild-card picks. European captain Paul McGinley is expected to announce his assistants soon. Kevin Love Cavaliers Jersey .Com Tour. The former Canadian Amateur champion, who made his rookie year as a professional a memorable one, has had a long wait to get back on the course and after last season, hes anxious to play. Anderson Varejao Cavaliers Jersey . Dribbling on the perimeter with the final seconds ticking off the clock and Washington down by a point, Wall found his opening.SEATTLE -- For all that Felix Hernandez has done in his career, pitching meaningful games in the final two months of the season has been a rarity. With Seattle in the thick of the wild-card chase in the American League, Hernandez got the Mariners most anticipated home series since 2007 off to an electric start on Monday night. Hernandez allowed one run in seven strong innings, extending his major league record streak, and Robinson Cano provided a jolt of run support as Seattle romped to an 11-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. Hernandez twirled another gem, making his 16th straight start of at least seven innings while allowing two earned runs or less. Hernandez needed just 96 pitches to get through seven and his only mistake was Jose Bautistas solo home run in the fourth. And he did it before a buzzing crowd of 41,168 as Seattle remained one game back in the chase for the second wild-card spot. "That was unreal. That was pretty good," Hernandez said. "Were fighting. Were going to continue to fight and do the little things." And for a change, Hernandez wasnt left wondering if Seattle would score enough. Cano ignited a seven-run sixth inning with his 10th homer of the season for a 3-1 lead. That was just the start. Mike Zunino followed with an RBI triple and an RBI double by Endy Chavez ended the night for Toronto starter Drew Hutchison (8-10). Seattles biggest inning since an eight-run outburst May 3 against Houston was just getting started. Brad Miller lined an RBI triple and Dustin Ackley brought home two runs with a single. Cano came up again, and after stepping out of the box while a lightning bolt and thunder crackled outside the stadium, just missed a second homer in the inning by inches with a RBI double off the wall. "Everything I saw was away ... so I was just trying to go the other way, but I wasnt trying to hit a homer," Cano saiid. Brad Daugherty Cavaliers Jersey. . A day after going 19 innings to beat Detroit at home and not arriving to Seattle until 12:30 a.m. local time, Bautistas 23rd homer was the only highlight for Toronto. The only other Toronto batter to get a hit was Colby Rasmus, who had two and is now 7 for 10 against Hernandez. King Felix struck out eight, walked none and lowered his ERA to 1.95 for the season. Hernandez is 9-2 with a 1.41 ERA during the 16-game streak. "With Felix out there, you give those guys a lead they put it away," Toronto manager John Gibbons said. WEB GEMS Canos heady fielding cut down a potential scoring opportunity for Toronto in the second. After Rasmus doubled, Dioner Navarro hit a grounder to second. Cano threw to third and got Rasmus trying to advance. Hernandez then got a double play grounder from Danny Valencia to get out of the inning. Cano later added an over-the-shoulder basket catch running down the right-field line. 2K KING Hernandez became the first pitcher since Dwight Gooden to reach 2,000 innings during or before his age-28 season.

Topic : The 21-year-old McHale,

WASHINGTON -- Al Jefferson had 26 points and 10 rebounds, and Gerald Henderson went 6 for 9 in his return from a calf injury Wednesday night to lead the Charlotte Bobcats to a 98-85 win over the Washington Wizards. Wholesale NFL Jerseys . Henderson finished with 13 points, and Kemba Walkers 16 points included four consecutive free throws during a late fourth-quarter run for the Bobcats, who have won four of five and sit in seventh place in the Eastern Conference. John Wall scored 23 points to lead the Wizards, but he went scoreless in the fourth and received little help from his teammates. Washington had won eight of its previous 10 and began the day in fifth, one-half game ahead of the Brooklyn Nets. Bobcats-Wizards late in the season is usually more about pingpong balls than playoffs, but Washington is closing in on its first post-season berth since 2008 and Charlotte is nearly there for the first time since 2010. Fittingly, they were evenly matched, a good sign for their two meetings yet to come on March 31 and April 9. Neither team led by more than six until Wall fouled Walker while Walker was attempting a 3-pointer with 4:34 to play. Walker was awarded three free throws, and Washington coach Randy Wittman was called for a technical foul after the second attempt. Walker made the technical, then made the last of his quartet of free throws to put the Bobcats ahead 87-80. Wall compounded matters for the Wizards by missing two free throws a half-minute later. Walker then hit a hang-in-the-air 3-pointer with the shot clock running down to make it a 10-point lead. The Bobcats closed the game with a 15-5 run. Henderson missed the previous five games with a strained right calf, and his return -- while welcome -- had potential chemistry issues to the point where coach Steve Clifford called a pregame team meeting to address players roles going forward. Henderson would start against the Wizards, Clifford told the team, but Chris Douglas-Roberts would continue to get substantial playing time based on matchups against certain opponents. Douglas-Roberts had played well in Hendersons absence, scoring in double figures in four of five games. Douglas-Roberts played 21 minutes off the bench Wednesday night and scored 10 points. Henderson, meanwhile, looked plenty healthy when he exploded for a one-handed jam in the first quarter. Wall had the only sure hand for the Wizards. He went 10 for 19 from the field, while everyone else was 25 for 63. Perhaps a sign of Wall trying too hard: He got reckless trying for one-handed driving dunk late in the third quarter and was called for a charge as he crashed onto the floor. Notes: Bobcats G Gary Neal, acquired last month in a trade, did not play due to "an internal team matter," according to an announcement by the team. ... Charlotte committed only two fouls in the first half. ... Both teams shot 20 for 43 (46.5 per cent) in the first half. ... The Bobcats improved to 2-8 against Southeast Division opponents.

Topic : Glenn Robinson III scored 15 points Sunday,

ANAHEIM, Calif. http://www.nflchinajerseyshop.com/ . - Corey Perry got to 40 goals and helped the Anaheim Ducks reach 50 wins. Perry scored twice in Anaheims three-goal third period, and Francois Beauchemin added the winning tally with 1:21 left as the Ducks rallied to beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Wednesday night. Beauchemin fired a slap shot past goalie Viktor Fasth, with assists from Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, as the Ducks improved to (50-18-8). "Their team was taking away the far side, so I just tried to shoot it as hard as I could," said Beauchemin, who scored his 10th career winning goal. "I knew (Perry) was going for a rebound if it was there. Fortunately, it went in. I was pretty happy with that one." With the Ducks trailing 2-0, Perry scored his 40th goal just 37 seconds after Jordan Eberle doubled Edmontons lead at 2:51. Perry then tied it at 11:25 with No. 41. It is the second time Perry has reached 40 goals in a season. "Weve been a team thats worked had all year," Perry said. "We have that never-say-die attitude. If we continue to push and play the right way for a full 60 minutes, well be all right." Rookie goalie Frederik Anderson (19-5) stopped 30 shots for the Ducks, 5-0-1 in their last six games. "Thats twice hes come up with a big save," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "He made a big save when it was 2-0 right after their goal. Then we score right away. What a swing. "Theres no way we wouldve come back from 3-0, but Freddie stood tall and made a great save." Philip Larsen scored his third of the season in the first period for Edmonton. Anaheim improved to 27-7-4 at home. Edmonton dropped to 12-22-6 on the road. "The idea of winning 50 games is pretty cool, quite frankly," Boudreau said. "Theres only going to be a few teams that do it, and when youre one of them, its quite an accomplishment. Im pretty proud of the guys for 50 wins." Fasth, who faced his former team for the first time since being dealt for two draft picks a month ago, made 23 saves but dropped to 2-2-1 for the Oilers. In two seasons with Anaheim, Fasth was 17-8-3 with four shutouts and a 2.32 goals-against average. "There were a lot of emotions," Fasth said. "I had been playing with the guys on the other side for over a year. It was a special feeling. Thats a tough loss." The Pacific Division-leading Ducks are three points ahead of second-place San Jose with a game in hand. Anaheim trails Western-Conference leading St. Louis by one point. Edmonton, last in the Pacific Division, will finish a three-game road trip at Phoenix on Friday. The Oilers, who have scored on just 16.4 per cent of their power plays this season, took advantage of one to grab a 1-0 lead over the Ducks. Larsen drilled the puck into the upper right corner of the net on the glove side with 3:56 left in the second period. Edmonton outshot the Ducks 24-15 over the first two periods and took a 1-0 lead into the third. The Oilers doubled their lead on Eberles 26th goal of the season. "Its heartbreaking," Edmonton coach Dallas Eakins said. "Its games like these that you want your players to feel the reward of the points. When we had it 2-0, we had an unbelievable chance in front of the net and a rebound that, if it would have went to three, it would have been over for sure. But then again, with the Ducks, you never know. "They seem to be very, very good at never being out of a game. We have to find a way to close it out." NOTES: Anaheim leads the NHL with 3.23 goals per game. ... The Ducks four-goal comeback win over Winnipeg on Monday was the largest in an NHL victory since Jan. 9, 2010, when Minnesota beat Chicago 6-5 in a shootout, after trailing 5-1. ...

A week after collecting the Professional Footballers Association trophy, the Uruguay international won the 2014 vote by the Football Writers Association on Monday.ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan coach John Beilein is willing to give Nik Stauskas a little leeway when it comes to shot selection. "Hes looking for a perfect play all the time, and shooters got to shoot it," Beilein said. "Sometimes whats a bad shot for others is a really good shot for him." Stauskas scored 21 of his 25 points in the second half Sunday, repeatedly making contested shots from the perimeter to help the 20th-ranked Wolverines to a 79-70 win over 13th-ranked Michigan State. Michigan rallied from an 11-point first-half deficit and wrested first place in the Big Ten from its in-state rival. "I just came out with the mindset in the second half that I wasnt going to be stopped," Stauskas said. "Once I made a couple shots, it kept going from there." Caris LeVert added 23 points for the Wolverines (19-7, 11-3), who won both regular-season meetings against Michigan State and six of the last eight games in the series. The Spartans (22-6, 11-4) started well, but were only up 36-34 at halftime. Then Stauskas and LeVert led a second-half charge. The Wolverines trailed 52-51 before going on a 13-0 run that sent the Crisler Center crowd into delirium. Michigan scored 45 points in the second half Sunday -- after blitzing the Spartans for 50 after halftime in an 80-75 win in East Lansing last month. "The first game, I was very proud of our effort. This game, we looked tired," Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said. "Im not very proud of our effort." Gary Harris scored 21 points for the Spartans. The victory gives Michigan a chance to earn its second Big Ten title in three years after tying for the championship in 2012. The Wolverines have home games against Minnesota and Indiana, as well as trips to Purdue and Illinois. Michigan State has home games against Illinois and Iowa followed by a trip to Ohio State. Stauskas was terrific in Michigans win at Michigan State last month, but he had not scored more than 16 points in a game since then. Perhaps he was letting opposing teams take him out of the offence too easily, but at 6-foot-6, if Stauskas makes up his mind that hhes going to shoot, he usually can.www.nflchinajerseyshop.com. . With the Wolverines down 48-43, Stauskas scored seven straight points to give Michigan the lead. When the Spartans edged back ahead by one, Stauskas answered with a 3-pointer, and it soon become clear that there wasnt much Michigan State could do to keep him from shooting over defenders on the perimeter. A 3-pointer by Stauskas from the right wing put Michigan ahead 59-52, then LeVert added a 3-pointer and a dunk. With the Spartans wearing down, Jon Horford dunked for Michigan to make it 68-56 -- and that ended a stretch of 23 straight Michigan points by Stauskas or LeVert. Michigan fans serenaded the Spartans with a chant of "little brother" toward the end. The Spartans have battled injuries throughout this season -- Adreian Payne and Brandon Dawson missed the first meeting with Michigan. Dawson was still out Sunday with his broken hand, but Payne is back, and he had 12 points and 11 rebounds. Keith Appling, who has been dealing with a wrist problem, scored only six points for Michigan State. "Yeah, I fell on the wrist again, but I couldnt come out of the game," Appling said. "Its very frustrating right now, because there are things I just cant do, but I cant let that be an excuse. Im the quarterback of this team, like coach always says, and I have to be out there leading." Michigan, of course, has been playing without big man Mitch McGary for over two months, but the Wolverines have overcome his back-related absence thus far. Glenn Robinson III scored 15 points Sunday, including an alley-oop dunk from a driving Stauskas that made it 72-61. Michigan State made 17 shots from 3-point range in its previous game against Purdue, and the Spartans were locked in early in this one. Payne dunked on freshman Zak Irvin while drawing a foul, and the three-point play gave Michigan State a 22-11 lead. The Wolverines responded with a 10-0 run that included 3-pointers by Spike Albrecht and LeVert and a breakaway dunk by Irvin. LeVert scored 14 points in the first half, and his 3-pointer in the final seconds cut Michigan States lead to two. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

PRETORIA, South Africa -- Oscar Pistorius defence team called an anesthetist to testify at the double-amputee runners murder trial Thursday in an attempt to counter prosecution claims that Pistorius is lying about the timeline of events on the night he killed girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Nike Free 3.0 v5 Baratas . Prof. Aina Christina Lundgren was being questioned on her expertise regarding how long it takes a person to digest food after eating. The testimony relates to an autopsy report on Steenkamps body that said she still had food in her stomach after she was killed by Pistorius, leading prosecutors to challenge his story that the couple last ate around eight hours before he shot her through a toilet door. An expert testifying for the prosecution said a persons stomach is normally empty of food six hours after eating and Steenkamp ate much later on the night of the killing and not in line with Pistorius story. Prosecutors say thats because the couple were up arguing late into the night before Pistorius shot Steenkamp multiple times in the midst of a heated fight through a toilet stall door in his bathroom. Pistorius says he mistook her for an intruder hiding behind the closed toilet stall door. He testified the couple had dinner at around 7 p.m. on the night she was killed, and they were in bed around 10 p.m. Pistorius shot Steenkamp after 3 a.m. on Feb. 14, 2013. Lundgren, who described herself as a specialist anesthetist, testified that there are a number of factors that could have delayed the digestion process in Steenkamp to explain the food found in her stomach, including that she was a pre-menopausal woman and had been sleeping. Lundgren was presented by the defence to try and undermine the testimony of pathologist Prof. Gert Saayman, who said it was his opinion that Steenkamp ate much later than Pistorius says, possibly even at around 1 a.m. when the runner claims they were in bed. Lundgren said it was difficult to be exact about the rate of digestion and it was "speculative to attempt to estimate when she had last eaten." Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel cross-examined Lundgren and pointed to Saaymans findings that he could even identify vegetable and cheese matter in Steenkamps stomach. "Would you not have expected the digestive process to have caused the contents to be unrecognizable after eight hours?" Nel asked Lundgren. "I cant comment," she replied. "But he can, and he did," Nel said of Saaymans report. The state pathologist was present in the courtroom and Nel asserted that his evidence was "more probable." Replying to Nels questions, Lundgren said she was a clinician and unwilling to criticize Saayman, a pathologist. However, later on re-examination by chief defence lawyer Barry Roux, she said she did not agree with Saaymans assertion that Steenkamp ate at 1 a.m. or after. Pistorius lawyers also said in a statement Thursday that an offer to buy the villa where the Olympian killed Steenkamp had been accepted and the sale of the house was being processed. Pistorius is selling his home in the gated community in the South African capital Pretoria to help with his legal bills. His trial is now into its seventh week of testimony. Lawyer Brian Webber said they would not identify who was buying the house or the amount it was being sold for until the sale was finalized. Pistorius last year valued the house at about $450,000. nike free flyknit 5.0 . Beaulieu has four goals and 10 assists in 32 AHL games and had one assist in five games for Montreal this season. The 23-year-old Nattinen has five goals and six assists in 37 games for the Bulldogs this season. nike roshe run comprar . Meek pitched 12 innings over 12 games with Pittsburgh last season. The 30-year-old spent five years with the Pirates, going 7-7 with a 3.34 ERA in 156 appearances out of the bullpen.A late goal by Carlyle Mitchell wasnt enough for Vancouver Whitecaps FC to avoid their second straight 2-1 loss to Seattle Sounders FC on Sunday morning at the Kino Sports Complex. Down 2-0, the Trinidadian defender brought the Caps to within one goal after heading in a Nicolas Mezquida corner in the 78th minute. Vancouver nearly equalized moments later, when Uruguayan midfielder Sebastien Fernandez released Darren Mattocks into the Sounders 18-yard-box, but the Jamaicans left-footed effort trickled just wide of the post as Whitecaps FCs comeback bid fell just short. "Winning and losing is a fine line," said head coach Carl Robinson. "You saw today that it was pretty even game. They took their two chances, we ended up scoring and missing a penalty and getting a chance in the last minute and we lose the game. Its preseason … Im not really focused on results at the moment. Im focused on fitness and also on combinations." Unlike Vancouvers first two preseason matches in Casa Grande, Sundays contest in Tucson was made up of three 30-minute periods rather than two halves. The Caps went with an experienced squad again on Sunday, with players like David Ousted, Jay DeMerit, and Nigel Reo-Coker making their second straight starts. Right back Steven Beitashour also made his first start as a member of Whitecaps FC and midfielder Russell Teibert made his first appearance of the preseason. The 21-year-old Canadian, who played in a holding midfielder position alongside Reo-Coker, was lively throughout the opening 45 minutes in defending and attacking positions. nike free 3.0 v4 comprar. After a fairly uneventful opening 20 minutes, in which Whitecaps FC looked comfortable in possession, Seattle broke the deadlock in the 23rd minute on the strength of a Kevin Parsemain volley from the top of the box. Teibert had Vancouvers best chance to even the match in the 38th, as he took to the penalty spot after Hurtado was hauled down, only to see his attempt sail over the goal. Despite the miss, the Caps manager said he liked what he saw from the young Canadian. "I thought he was great," said Robinson. "He wanted the ball all the time, he was dropping deep to get on the ball, and he was spraying passes. I thought it was a very positive performance from Russell." Andy Rose scored the eventual winner for Sounders FC in the 50th minute. In the build-up, Sean Okoli headed a Chad Barrett cross across goal to the near post, where Rose headed it in past a sprawling Marco Carducci.   The Caps will return to Casa Grande on Sunday, where a number of Vancouvers trialists and recent draft picks will play a scrimmage against Indy Eleven on Monday, before flying back to Vancouver on Wednesday. Their next preseason match is set for Sunday, February 16 against the University of Victoria Vikes at Centennial Stadium. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys' ' '

The Hawks could have clinched the final Eastern Conference berth had the Knicks lost in Toronto. Instead, Atlanta remained two games up with three to play, needing just one more win or New York loss to secure its post-season place. Jeff Teague added 22 points for the Hawks, who won for just the fifth time in 13 games and are only 36-43, but that might be good enough in the East. He frequently took advantage of a matchup with little brother Marquis, forced to play extended minutes while the Nets rested some regulars. Atlanta was just 1 of 19 from 3-point range, but hit 20 of its 21 free throws. Mason Plumlee scored 17 points and Marcus Thornton had 14 for the Nets, who had their franchise-record, 15-game home winning streak snapped. Brooklyn, likely locked into the No. 5 seed, rested starters Deron Williams (right patella tendinitis) and Shaun Livingston, who missed his second straight with a sprained right big toe. Paul Pierce had 13 points for the Nets, becoming the 18th player in NBA history with 25,000. But he was just 2 of 6 from the free throw line and 1 of 7 behind the arc. Atlanta can wrap up its spot by beating Miami at home on Saturday. The Hawks opened their largest lead at 64-53 midway through the third quarter after a run of seven straight points, but the Nets made 10 of 16 shots in the period and were back within 74-73 heading to the fourth.

But starter Jorge Gutierrez soon came back in and found Plumlee for a three-point play that gave Brooklyn an 88-87 lead with 2:22 to play. Millsaps reverse layup gave Atlanta the lead again, and the Hawks got a break when an original offensive foul call on Teague for charging into Gutierrez was overturned when instant replay showed Gutierrez was in the restricted area. The free throws made it 91-88 with 1:46 remaining, and the Nets couldnt score again before Teague put it away with two more free throws. Brooklyn led 23-16 after one but the Hawks turned around the game with a 39-point second quarter, when Jeff Teague scored 14 points in 7 minutes. Much of that came when he was against Marquis, a seldom-used player in his second season and first with the Nets after he was traded this season from Chicago. Marquis Teague was forced to play extended minutes when Gutierrez picked up his third foul with 5:40 left in the half and the Nets leading by two. Jeff Teague then scored 11 points in the final 5:16, converting a three-point play when his brother fouled him and later making two free throws after beating Marquis so badly with a crossover dribble that Marquis had to foul him to stop a layup.

Topic : Sabella included central defenders Federico Fernandez

MALMO, SWEDEN – Bringing Griffin Reinhart to the World Junior Hockey Championship, even though he would miss the first three games due to a suspension, was a major gamble.Limited Atlanta Falcons Matt Ryan Mens Home Jersey Nike NFL Red . And it almost backfired. Without the big Edmonton Oil Kings defenceman in the lineup, Team Canada stumbled in a shootout loss to the Czech Republic and then trailed Slovakia 3-1 late in the second period of its third roundrobin game. A loss to the Slovaks would have meant Canadas hopes of topping Group A would be dashed and a date with the Russians in the quarter-finals would be looming. But Canada found a way, barely, to beat Slovakia. Reinhart then returned against the United States on New Years Eve, solidifying the blue line and helping Canada beat their North American rivals and secure an easier quarter-final opponent. Reinhart then scored the opening goal – the first time Canada struck first in eight games, including three pre-tournament ones – and added an assist in a 4-1 win over the Swiss. He was named player of the game. Meanwhile, the United States was eliminated by Russia. All the sudden, the decision to bring Reinhart is looking mighty good.  "The only people questioning it was everybody on the outside," insisted head coach Brent Sutter. "We didnt have any question on the inside. After assessing where we were throughout the country with our back end, it became very clear to myself, after being told what I was told from the scouts side of it, that we had to take that chance of him not playing in the first three games and having him for perhaps the last four and thats how its going to work out." Reinhart, the son of former NHL defenceman Paul Reinhart, is the whole package. Thats why the New York Islanders made him the fourth overall pick in the 2012 NHL draft. And he certainly seems motivated to repay the trust Sutter has shown in him.  "All year, it was pretty unpredictable whether they were going to take him," said Sam Reinhart, Griffins younger brother and Canadian teammate. "You know everyone in the locker room is happy they did now and hes probably the happiest guy here, too." Griffin Reinharts return had an immediate impact on defence partner Mathew Dumba, who was forced to carry a large load in the first three games, despite suffering from an energy-sapping virus. (If Dumba had been forced to miss a game, that would have left Canada with just five defenceman, yet another possible pitfall of bringing Reinhart despite the suspension.) Dumbas game was a bit off at times early in the competition, but he has meshed well with Reinhart in the last two outings.  "Its huge having Griff here," said Dumba, who played 13 games with the Minnesota Wild this season before being loaned to Hockey Canada. "Hes a veteran player. Hes that calming presence definitely on the back end. I love playing with him. He makes it real simple for me out there. I always know where he is and vice versa." Reinharts presence has had ripple effects throughout the entire roster. "Hes meant a lot," said forward Curtis Lazar, "and you saw his offensive side today, but also in the D zone, he uses that big body to get the puck out of pressure and makes that first, crisp pass. Were really glad to have him back in the lineup." "Its been huge," said Sam Reinhart. "That experience he brings, the level of play, he just calms everything right from the forwards back to the goalie, just a calming presence on the ice." As for Griffin Reinhart himself, well, he is pretty happy with what hes brought to the table thus far. "Felt better that game," he said, moments after the quarter-final victory, "starting to get my legs under me and the team played well. Just skating, starting to get my hands back, just more comfortable on the ice. Its different practising, situations are different in games. The States game went well and its only getting better." Reinharts calm demeanour on the ice is replicated off it. "Ive known Griff for a quite a while and hes not the loudest guy in the dressing room, but when het gets on the ice, he loves to control the game," said Lazar, Reinharts teammate in the Western Hockey League. "I sort of have the inside track on Griff and hes not going to show much emotion, but its good to have him and hes really happy with the performance hes put out the past couple of games." Was the desire to make an impact eating him up while he waited for a chance to contribute earlier in the tournament? "Oh yeah," Lazar said, "no doubt." Notes:  * Charles Hudon (shoulder) and Mathew Dumba (knee/leg) did not take part in the practice; head coach Brent Sutter described the absences as "maintenance days" and said both players are expected to be the lineup on Saturday. * It was Canadas first practice at Malmo Arena, which is much larger than the Malmo Isstadion where the team played its previous five tournament games; "It is what it is," Sutter said. "The game is played on the same sized ice no matter where youre playing." In conversation with Nabil Karim after the quarter-final win on Thursday, Sutter said moving rinks was akin to playing a "road game." The Finns have been based at Malmo Arena all tournament.  * Sutter was asked for his take on facing Finland: "I see a hard-working team. I see a team thats very structured. I see a team thats going to play some North American hockey. Theyre a gritty group. Theyre getting some decent goaltending and they got three forwards on their team that are as good as any forwards in this tournament. Theyre going to come and theyre going to come hard and we have to be ready for it." * Here is a link to Canadian players talking about Fridays practice and facing Finland: http://bit.ly/1gwWvc4 Atlanta Falcons Throwback Deion Sanders Mens Home Jersey Authentic Mitchell And Ness NFL Red .

Sabella has never called up the hard-working striker since taking charge of the national team in 2011. Instead hes put his faith in Ezequiel Lavezzi and Rodrigo Palacio as substitutes for star attackers Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain and Sergio Aguero. All were included in Sabellas initial 30-player squad, which will be reduced to a final 23 by a FIFA deadline of June 2. The 30-year-old Tevez has scored 19 goals in the Italian Serie A this season. "I am sorry I had to leave out good players," Sabella said, without mentioning names. He also excluded veteran midfielder Esteban Cambiasso of Inter Milan but included Manchester Citys Martin Demichelis, who hasnt played for the national team for two years. While Argentinas attack is among the worlds strongest, the team looks weaker at the back. Sergio Romero remains Sabellas first-choice goalkeeper even though hes not a regular starter for French club Monaco. Mariano Andujar of Catania and Agustin Orion of Boca Juniors were called up as Romeros backups in the preliminary squad. Sabella included central defenders Federico Fernandez and Ezequiel Garay along with fullbacks Pablo Zabaleta and Marco Roja. Atlanta Falcons Steven Jackson Mens Alternate Jersey Elite Nike NFL Black. Boca Juniors midfielder Fernando Gago was selected despite receiving a knee injury last month. Gago damaged a ligament in his left knee last month in the Argentine league.

Topic : I know, based on last year,

WASHINGTON -- Ovechkin once. Nike Air Max 90 Baratas Online . Ovechkin twice. Steen not at all. Just like that, theres a tie atop the NHL goal scoring race, as well as a new leader in the Metropolitan Division. Alex Ovechkin scored his 16th and 17th goals in the first period, while Alexander Steen was held pointless for only the second time this season Sunday night in the Washington Capitals 4-1 win over the St. Louis Blues. "For me, it means a lot," Ovechkin said. "Its always nice to score big goals in big game, but it was a very good team effort today." Braden Holtby made 46 saves, a career high for a regular season game. Mikhail Grabovski and John Carlson also scored, and Nicklas Backstrom had three assists for the Capitals, who have won three straight win and seven out of nine to leapfrog the Pittsburgh Penguins for first place in the division. Vladimir Sobotka scored in the second period for the Blues, who had won eight of 10. The Capitals caught them at a good time, with St. Louis playing for the third time in four nights and on the second half of a back-to-back after a home win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday. "We knew theyre a hot team, theyre a good team, strong, and we knew their situation last night and what they had to deal with," Carlson said. "And Im sure theyre saying its not an excuse, but for us we wanted to jump on them as quick as possible." Sure enough, the Blues said the schedule wasnt an excuse, but they also knew they couldnt afford to be playing catch-up with tired legs. "First period, we were a step behind," St. Louis defenceman Jay Bouwmeester said. "To get down like that against a tough like that, its tough." The Blues took a season-high 47 shots compared to 20 for the Capitals, but the statistic is misleading. St. Louis quality chances were few and far between, while Washington scored on three of its first six shots. Ovechkin got the first two. Sprung on a pass at centre ice by Backstrom -- another sign of the solid chemistry that has developed between the two -- Ovechkin sped past the Blues defencemen and into the right circle for a clean look, beating goaltender Jaroslav Halak stick-side. Ovechkin then flicked in a rebound off a shot by Karl Alzner to give the Capitals a 2-0 lead less than 13 minutes into the game. Meanwhile, Steen finished with three shots on goal and another four that were blocked. His points streak came to an end at 13 games, the longest for a Blues player since Pierre Turgeons 15-game run in 1999-2000. "We had lots of shots, but we didnt have any real penetration, or good shots," Bouwmeester said. "That wasnt our best game, for sure." After Ovechkins two goals, Grabovski poked in a rebound from a tight angle to make it 3-0 late in the first period. The Blues and Capitals also have the top two power plays in the NHL, and they traded man-advantage goals in the second period. Sobotka and Carlson each scored with a drive through traffic from high in the slot, with Carlsons goal ending an 0 for 11 power-play drought for Washington over the previous three games. "Obviously we expected them to be a little tired," Washington coach Adam Oates said. "But I dont think those goals came from fatigue. I think we got rewarded for doing the right things." Notes: The Blues had scored first in their previous 10 games. ... The Capitals have won six in a row at home. ... Washington D Mike Green missed his second consecutive game with a lower body injury and was placed on injured reserve. Oates said Green might return for Wednesdays game against the Penguins. ... The Capitals recalled D Dmitry Orlov from Hershey of the AHL. ... Holtby had a 47-save game in the 2012 playoffs against the New York Rangers. nike free 3.0 v4 mujer . That will be 35 more holes than the first time they played together. Walker was a senior at Baylor when he used his parents credit card -- against their wishes because it was during finals -- to go through Monday qualifying for the Byron Nelson Championship. Nike Free 3.0 v5 Mujer . -- Jacksonville Jaguars rookie receiver Marqise Lee has agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth more than $5 million.DUNEDIN, Florida – On Tuesday afternoon, TSN.ca sat down with Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker for an exclusive 1-on-1 at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium. Last season, thanks to injuries and ineffectiveness, Torontos starting rotation posted a 4.81 ERA, second-worst in all of baseball. If the Jays are going to compete in the ultra-tough American League East, the staff will have to drastically improve that number. This discussion focuses on the makeup of the rotation, early favourites to earn a spot and whether Walker truly believes this club has enough major league-ready, quality arms to be playing meaningful games in August and September. To listen to the interview, click here. TSN.ca: Pete, weve got a lot to get to here so Im going to fire some bullets here and hope you dont dodge them. Here we go: Drew Hutchison, first and foremost, very, very impressive on Saturday in Sarasota with a fastball clocked in the mid-90s. Could you foresee him on the starting staff when we break camp on March 30, March 31? WALKER: You know, its definitely early in camp but watching him work, watching him go about his business and the way hes carrying himself right now and the way the ball is coming out of his hand, the command, the poise, the power, its a pretty good group of pitches there. Right now, hes just doing everything he needs to do to set himself apart from some of the other guys. Again, its his first outing. You dont want to put too much stock in it but the evidence points to him being on top of his game right now, feeling great coming back from the Tommy John surgery and, again, you cant say enough about the first impression in camp for Drew. The way its going for him, if he continues to pitch this way and continues to throw the ball the way hes throwing, hes certainly a strong candidate for that rotation. TSN.ca: Were looking at whats a pretty obvious top three here right now. R.A. (Dickey) is going to get the opening day start. Brandon Morrow will slot in behind and Mark Buehrle will slot in behind. Then there is that much, much larger grouping of which Hutchison is one, that includes J.A. Happ, Esmil Rogers, Todd Redmond, Kyle Drabek and the list goes on and on and on. In terms of how youre assessing the back end the rotation right now, is there one spot available or are there two spots available? WALKER: Were looking at it as one. Certainly, J.A. hasnt gotten off to a great start for him right now. We would love him to be in that rotation. Certainly, hes a guy whos pitched in the big leagues and had some success. We like where his slot is right now. Obviously, the last outing didnt go very well for him. We want to make sure hes feeling as good as he needs to be physically and were going to get him out there many more times this spring. Hes a guy we want in that rotation, theres no question about it but with that being said, theres a competition down here and the guys coming in that are performing well, obviously you dont want to put too much stock in spring training, but the guys that come in ready to go, its hard to deny the way theyre throwing the ball and if they continue to throw the ball that way on a positive note, they could definitely see themselves being mentioned in that fourth and fifth slot. TSN.ca: The business side at this time of year can be just as involved in decision-making as the performance side and Esmil Rogers and Todd Redmond are two guys who contributed to your starting rotation, really in a pinch, late last season and did reasonably well. Both are out of options, which for the uninitiated means they could not be sent to the minors without going through waivers and you run the risk of losing them. How much of a factor do options play in the ultimate decision-making process here? WALKER: Its a fine line. I mean, obviously, from a player development standpoint you want to make sure the guys who are young are ready to come up here and obviously, you dont want to lose good arms through the waiver process with guys that have had success in the big leagues like Redmond and Rogers. Those guys did a great job for us last year. Were looking forward to them being part of the staff but again, youve got to watch these younger guys, Hutchison, Stroman and watch the way they throw the ball this spring. If those are the guys that are going to give us the best chance to win in April, then you have to strongly consider it. You certainly, over the course of a long season, dont want to lose quality arms, thats for sure because at some point, youre going to need those guys. Rogers is potentially a number four or five starter in the big leagues, going out there every fifth day with the stuff that he throws out there. Certainly at times last year, he looked like it. Redmonds the same. I mean, he did a fantastic job for us late in the season. You cant just overlook those guys; they did do a nice job for us, they are candidates, viable candidates to fill those positions and guys were very confident in. But it is hard to deny that you see a guy like Hutchison and Stroman and see how poised they are and see how theyre doing over the course of spring training and the way they carry themselves that they act and look like big leaguers, theres no doubt about it. Itll be interesting to watch the rest of the spring because theres a lot of pitching left for these guys and certainly guys will have the ability to step up or take a step back. TSN.ca: Have there been any changes in the way that you guys want to approach hitters this season? WALKER: From a pitching philosophy standpoint? TSN.ca: Yes. WALKER: No doubt. Obviously last year didnt go well for a number of reasons. You always look back on the season and you find reasons why. You look to evaluate certain areas and you look to make adjustments I guess as a player, as a coach, its a constant changing so to speak so were always looking to improve. I think, this year, the one thing we do want to implement more is the off-speed pitch, you know, the changeup. We had guys with great stuff that got hurt sometimes because they didnt change speeds well enough, you know disrupt hitters timing. I think, this year, were looking to do that a little bit more. I think its very important from a pitching perspective, in those advanced meetings on the opposing side that they recognize we have good off-speed stuff as well as the power, just to disrupt their timing so thats something were definitely looking into. Aside from that, strike one more consistently and minimizing the walks. nike free 3.0 v4 mujer baratas. . Our walks were too high last year. We want to attack the zone, again it was a philosophy last year it just didnt really follow through but were definitely emphasizing it more this spring, changing speeds and really going after the hitters early on. TSN.ca: I dont know if it shows much on TV but when you walk around and you look at Brandon Morrow, you definitely notice a different body type. Hes put on some muscle and he shared with us that he tipped the scales at 219 pounds. This time last year, he was 189 pounds on his way to 203 by opening day. Is he healthy? How is he feeling? How confident are you that he can be the guy to give you 180-200 innings and win you 15-18 games because looking at the rotation, that seems to be awfully important? WALKER: His track record isnt great, you cant deny that but he definitely came into camp ready to go. He looks strong, he feels strong, the balls coming out of his hand great. He said he feels great so we are counting on him to be a workhorse for us. We need him to be a workhorse for this staff and be a leader out there and take the ball every fifth day. Obviously, if that doesnt happen, thats going to be a big blow to this staff. We need him to be out there. I think he recognizes that and, like I said, hes come to camp in great shape. Hes stronger. To me, he looks more durable and, like I said, the ball is coming out nice for this time of the spring. Were counting on him heavily. He knows it and I feel like hes ready for the challenge. TSN.ca: Whats your relationship like with R.A. Dickey because, as a conventional pitcher, you were one of about 99 per cent of the pitchers all-time who were fastball and you work through your repertoire. Hes a knuckleballer and youve had him now for a year. How do you help him? What kind of tips do you give him? What does he ask of you because its obviously not a pitch youre familiar with? WALKER: Ive certainly learned a lot about the pitch, thats for sure, and the mechanics of the pitch. There are some traditional things that he does with his delivery that we look at, no question about it but Ive learned over the course of our side sessions and the terminology that hes used in the past, Ive learned certain things that were looking for in his delivery when they break down to let him know. He watches video. He prepares as well as anybody in the game, from a pitching standpoint, to recognize hitters weaknesses and what their strengths are. Its one of those things, over the course of the year, we learned a lot about each other. He is a determined worker. I know last year didnt go the way he expected or we expected initially. I do believe the WBC and the issues early on physically affected him. This year, he is more focused than I remember last year, thats for sure. His mind is in the right place, hes very determined and hes setting a great example for the younger guys. To me, he looks like hes on a mission to have a very successful season right from the get-go. The ball is coming out of his hand great right now, the movement on the ball, the velocity on the ball is better than last spring. Hes in a good place and, again, we need him to not only take the ball every fifth day but be a leader on this team and show the younger guys how its supposed to be done. TSN.ca: Two more for you, one is a look back and one is a look ahead. How long did you dwell on last season once you were able to get home and get away for a little bit? With some sober second thought, out of the heat of the battle, how did you assess what went on and some of the reasons why? WALKER: It was obviously a very difficult season for everybody involved. There were some sleepless nights. I felt like, at the end of the season, Id thrown 162 games and thats the way it should be as a pitching coach. You take it to heart. It definitely bothered me but going into the offseason, it was like starting with a clean slate, wanting to come into spring training with a fresh outlook and we certainly have. The guys are coming in, like I said were healthy, we need to be healthy, we need to stay healthy so were staying on top of those things. Were also coming in with a different frame of mind. I want these guys to believe in their stuff and take charge of their game. Last year, there were times when I think we just expected that we were going to do well and we were all guilty of it. But this year, I think theres a different look in these guys faces, the pitchers especially and I know theres been a couple of tough games these past two games but overall, the starters and the guys competing for spots are very focused and I like the way theyre going about their business and Im very pleased with where they are. TSN.ca: Pete, looking ahead, youll know this as much as anybody else, there is some concern amongst a large portion of the fan base up in Toronto that general manager Alex Anthopoulos did not add to the pitch staff externally this offseason, via free agency or via trade. So the question is, youve mentioned Hutchison, you did use Stromans name in an answer, Aaron Sanchez as well, how close are we to seeing Marcus Stroman, Aaron Sanchez and some of those guys not just come up and make their big league debuts but potentially contribute every fifth day to a successful team? WALKER: I think theyre real close, especially Drew Hutchison and Marcus Stroman. Whether that had something to do with Alexs decision or not this offseason, I know he was working very hard on a daily basis and we do have good options here. Obviously youre seeing it play out right in front of your eyes right here during spring training and I think you will for the rest of spring training. We certainly, in our pitchers meeting before spring training started, I definitely emphasized with these guys that we have enough in this room. I look at R.A. Dickey and Mark Buehrle and the other pitchers in that room and with that bullpen and with the young guys coming up, we certainly have enough pitching to be competitive and to win a lot of games and put us in a position for potential postseason play. But they have to believe it. I know, based on last year, the fan base and the media, its questionable in their minds but I know in that room, those guys are healthy, theyre determined, maybe they have a little chip on their shoulders but theyre definitely looking forward to the season and I definitely feel good about the group that we have. TSN.ca: We wish you guys well, Pete, thanks so much. WALKER: Thank you. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '

NEW YORK, N. Darren Collison Jersey .Y. - Jason Collins has been signed for the rest of the season by the Brooklyn Nets. The NBAs first openly gay player had finished his second 10-day contract, which meant the Nets had to sign him for the remainder of the season if they wanted to keep him. Collins has added five points, six rebounds and six steals in eight games since signing his first deal on Feb. 23. Hes been a reliable veteran big man on a team that has lost centre Brook Lopez for the season and has recently been without Kevin Garnett because of back spasms. Collins is playing his 13th season in the league, including six previous seasons with the Nets. Jason Williams Jersey . - The Chicago Cubs say they have agreed to one-year contracts with pitchers Jason Hammel and James McDonald. Ramon Sessions Authentic Jersey .Com Tour. The former Canadian Amateur champion, who made his rookie year as a professional a memorable one, has had a long wait to get back on the course and after last season, hes anxious to play. COLUMBUS, Ohio -- When opposing teams scout No. 3 Ohio State, they seldom notice Lenzelle Smith Jr. Buckeyes coach Thad Matta hopes they keep ignoring him. Smith scored 19 points and No. 3 Ohio State pulled away early to beat Bryant 86-48 on Wednesday night. "I think Lenzelle has been tremendous -- nobodys asked me about him this year," Matta said. "But I think hes playing at a very, very high level of being a complete basketball player." Smith, a 6-foot-4 senior guard who does a little of everything, hit 6 of 9 shots from the field including half of his four 3-point attempts. He had eight rebounds and three assists. "I put a lot of work into my game offensively over the summer. And my confidence is off the charts," he said. "My teammates are stretching the defence and are able to find me wide open. A lot of teams, for some reason, are (not guarding) me and Im getting great looks at the basket. Im just driving my legs and trying to get the most arc I can on the ball -- and its falling." There isnt much about Smith that grabs peoples attention. Point guard Aaron Craft is the tough guy who may be as good a defender on the ball as anyone in the country. Swingman LaQuinton Ross is 6-8 with a velvet shooting touch. Sam Thompson comes off the bench to make high-flying dunks. Shannon Scott and big man Amir Williams are game-changing defenders. And then theres Smith. He leads the Buckeyes (9-0) in scoring with 12.9 points a game. Hes shooting 53 per cent from the field, 48 per cent behind the arc and 74 per cent at the free throw line. He adds 5.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game -- and may be Ohio States best help defender. "Theyre so talented. Thats whats hard about playing them," Bryant coach Tim OShea said. "Who do you really want to leave open? Theyre just an elite team; a very, very, very elite team." Williams added 12 points and nine rebounds for the Buckeyes, who rolled from the outset of the early round game in the Blackrock Gotham Classic. It will conclude on Dec. 21 with the Buckeyes meeting Notre Dame at Madison Square Garden. The Bulldogs (6-5) hung around with the Buckeyes for a while, but then went scoreless over the last 5:25 of the first half and watched the Buckeyes close with an 8-0 run to take a 43-23 lead. Jason Thompson Sacramento Kings Jersey. Ohio State then scored the first five points of the second half before Dan Garvins layup ended a drought of 6:40. By then, it was all over. Ohio State has lost focus from time to time against lesser teams after it has taken a big early lead. Not this time. "That was one of the things we talked about in shootaround -- trying to sustain intensity and effort and to keep the focus on the things that we need to get better at," Matta said. "We did a pretty decent job with that." Dyami Starks had 16 points for Bryant, which was playing its second game in three nights. The Bulldogs lost at Notre Dame, 70-59, on Monday night. Starks came in averaging 22.1 points a game, eighth-best in Division I. He had scored at least 20 in five games and 30 in three others. But he was held to 5-of-15 shooting from the field. The Buckeyes led 8-7 early and then scored 14 of the next 18 points to take command. For the game, they shot 52 per cent on 32 of 61. They hit 8 of 20 3-pointers (40 per cent). With Ohio State denying points inside or off the break, Bryant shot 28 per cent from the field (16 of 58). It was 6 of 24 from behind the arc. "I looked at the scores coming in and very few teams have scored 60 points on them -- and they play fast," OShea said. "So I do think that defensively they play national-championship calibredefence." The Bulldogs dropped to 0-5 all-time against Big Ten opponents. Talk about a tough schedule: They played preseason No. 1 Indiana in the opener a year ago -- in their first official game in Division I. They lost that game 97-54. The Buckeyes appear to have everything clicking right now. "Were making great finds, were reading each other," Smith said. "We have great guards on the perimeter and were able to attack the defence and penetrate and kick the ball out. Thats what you want to do. Our shooting has increased over the last three or four games and we want to just keep rolling." cheap nfl jerseyscheap jerseys ' ' '

Topic : 19 RBI and five stolen bases in 34 games for Buffalo this season

1. Cheap Toronto Maple Leafs Jerseys . Practice Makes Perfect?So far, I have watched about six NFL games, mainly the first half of each, as many have, and concentration fades as the unfamiliar get their chance to make a team. But I have noticed no difference in quality of play from this year as compared to last year. Could it be that all the OTAs (organized team activities), all the passing clinics and all the extra meetings in the end are unnecessary? At first, when the lockout moved into May and June, I was of the opinion that there is no way you could put together an efficient, polished football team without a structured offseason. But I have to conclude I was wrong. I do believe that for a rookie or a first-year NFL player, having extra work does create a benefit that is tangible, but from what I have seen, those who have played before already know how to play. 2. One More to GoIt used to be, that in your first two exhibition games the starters played one series or one quarter, then it was all players of youth and inexperience. The third exhibition game was split about half and half, and the fourth was all starters all game. Now its really only the third exhibition game that catches the reality of best against the best. You want to know the truth? I would estimate that 99 per cent of the NFL veteran players, if they could, would miss each and every exhibition game. Do you really think that Adrian Peterson needs practice games? Yes, practice, but not practice games. The truth is that the great players are great because they can turn it on when it is time and the time is Game 1 of a 16-game schedule, not Game 3 of meaningless competition. 3. The ColtsI understand why Peyton Manning has a neck problem; I dont understand why Peyton Manning still has a neck problem.There are always two physicals in pro football. The first is opening day of training camp, to make sure everything works right. The second is the first day after your last game (sometimes second), to make sure everything still works right. What happened on that second physical? Because evidently Peyton Manning had a neck problem in Nov. 2010. So, if they knew about it then, why wasnt it confronted and taken care of in January 2011? It may surprise you but I am a proponent of Surgery. I know some injuries heal naturally - some. But I also know that if you have a problem, fix it now, not in the future. I believe the human body, especially the human mind, is the greatest natural machine created. But I also believe that the physical punishment in football is completely unnatural. When in doubt, reassess and rebuild. 4. Its the MoneyBradie James, a very good linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys, said the reason the team has only one playoff win in the last 15 years is that the Cowboys have a sense of entitlement due to their popularity and history - entitlement being a sense that you deserve something because of who you are, not what you accomplish. I think he is correct, but may I get back to the root of all good and all evil: money. Excess money, I have observed, will make you act or react in two ways. You either increase your desire to be at your best, or you lose desire to sacrifice and work. Sixty per cent of NFL players are 26 or younger. At age 26, you have reached your second contract, and by your second contract you just might be set for life financially - so why risk your health to be more set? I really admire players 30 and older, still playing hard, for they know the money they make now not only helps them, it helps others. Its a transition in motivation. 5. Would you be offended you be offended if your boss, before he hired you, asked you not to get a tattoo, or a piercing, or to keep your hair a certain length? It surprised me that 50 per cent of the people in my world felt that their boss has no right to tell you anything in regard to how you look or act. Jerry Richardson, owner for the Carolina Panthers, asked Cam Newton to avoid tattoos, piercings and basically told him how to look. Is that really all that intense of a request? I have never had a problem with piercings or tattooed people, but if TSN told me the opposite, that I needed a tattoo or piercings I would probably do it. Not because I am subservient or weak, its more that I know what it is like to be unemployed and I prefer being employed. All jobs have sacrifices some may be with image, but you have a job, respect the job, not your image issues. Cheap NFL Jerseys .S. Cellular Field on Saturday night, hell not only be returning to where his career began. Cheap Sacramento Kings Jerseys . They won gold today in the womens bobsled competition at the Sochi Games.

Pillar is batting .305 with 17 extra-base hits, 19 RBI and five stolen bases in 34 games for Buffalo this season.
