Marcus Buckland, Barry Cowan, Annabel Croft, Peter Fleming, Barry Millns, Mark Petchey, Greg Rusedski and Leif Shiras give their final verdict on a drama-filled ATP World Tour Finals which saw world No 1 Andy Murray crowned the best player on the planet. Adidas Y3 Uomo . Murray produced an imperious display to defeat Novak Djokovic 6-3 6-4 and win the season-ending extravaganza at Londons O2 Arena on Sunday.The 29-year-olds first Tour Finals title came with the hugely significant bonus of ensuring that he remained above Djokovic in the year-end rankings and can finally claim he is the best player on the planet. Murray wins World Tour Finals Andy Murray defeated Novak Djokovic to win the ATP World Tour Finals for the first time So what do the Sky Sports Tennis team make of Murrays marvellous achievement? We asked each of the experts to sum up Sundays historic final and pick out one memorable moment from whats been a blockbuster week of action in the capital.Marcus BucklandThe final verdictUnbelievable, unpredictable, extraordinary. Im going to run out of adjectives and superlatives, but not what many people expected. Incredible nonetheless. Murray milestones Andy Murrays greatest moments revisited after winning ATP World Tour Finals Marcus memorable momentIf I had to pick one moment - aside from getting into the ice bath with Annabel - its actually that extraordinary point that Andy played at 3-1 in the second set tie-break against Milos Raonic. That unbelievable little dink between his legs that kept him going ultimately to an amazing victory there, and to the glory that followed just 24 hours later. Marcus Buckland and Annabel Croft take a refreshing ice bath! Barry CowanThe final verdictIts ended in a remarkable year. I think its a fantastic advert for the sport that weve had two great champions battle it out. Its always great to be part of history and Andys run was fitting it ended like that for him. An extraordinary effort Andy Murray outclassed and outfought rival Novak Djokovic, says Barry Cowan Barrys memorable momentI think the end. The last game reminded me so much of the Wimbledon final. When clearly he was still nervous, he was still able to hold his nerve, and thats the sign of a champion. Murray pulled off this wonderful half volley during the second set tie-break against Raonic Annabel CroftThe final verdictIt feels as if weve witnessed a really, really special occasion. I dont think anybody could believe that Andy Murray could dig into some reserves that we didnt think would be there after the tennis that hes had to come through in the course of the week. He said himself that when he woke up he felt pretty terrible and he didnt know how he was going to be able to play the way he did. Andy was rock solid, he served well, and I just think it topped off what has been a special year. Everyone feels that he is the true world No 1. Annabels memorable momentThat tie-break against Milos Raonic in the third set. I was courtside and it was unbelievable tension and nerves, passion, drama. It was an extraordinary match that will live long in the memory. Im never going to forget that match and I cannot believe he was able to bounce back the next day, after three hours and 38 minutes, and be able to beat the former dominant world No 1. But he really, really deserves it. Hes in such a great place and has become the most overwhelmingly popular champion. Highlights of the epic semi-final match between Murray and Raonic Peter FlemingThe final verdictTwo weeks ago, when Murray won Paris and we thought it could possibly come down to the two best players playing in the final here for the world No 1, it was a great prospect and the final was even more exciting than we could have hoped for. What Murray showed there was a great illustration of the human spirit. And he showed his fighting spirit, making a mockery of the physical travails hes had this week. He was fantastic. Highlights of the final between Murray and Djokovic at Londons O2 Flemings memorable momentIt was the entire final, from start to finish. Murray was resolute, he was aggressive, he just kept going putting fatigue out of his mind, and at the very end, until the very last point, you had no idea - or certainly I wasnt confident - he was actually going to win, but he kept the pressure on to finish the job. Heres Murrays superb angled cross-court backhand winner which was a contender for shot of the tournament Barry MillnsThe final verdictThis was the dream final, but did we dream that this would ever happen? A first British finalist in these championships and to play in the way he did as the world No 1, like the world No 1, he quite rightly goes into 2017 as the world No 1. It was brilliant. Murray: I still need to improve Andy Murray needs to improve to fend off Novak Djokovic in 2017 Millns memorable momentThe first moment I thought that he was fine was against Stan Wawrinka, when he came out and attacked him when he was being attacked, and for me that was the aggression we needed from Murray. From that moment, I thought he was on his way. You cannot underline how great an achievement this is. He should be so proud of what hes done. Highlights of Murrays emphatic win over US Open champion Wawrinka Mark PetcheyThe final verdictI was super impressed with the way Andy was able to handle himself out there. There was no room for any kind of errors and he almost had to do it in two sets, just because of what happened the day before. He changed his game, way more aggressive, served huge. It validates all the hard work Andy does in Miami, which was probably the main reason, and his incredible work ethic, why he won. Mark Petchey says now Andy Murray has become world No 1, he is Britains greatest ever sports athlete Petchs memorable momentThe tie-breaker against Milos in the third. It was just ridiculous drama given what was on the line knowing that if he lost the match he was going to lose his chance to be year-end No 1. Just that whole 25 minutes or whatever it was. From serving for it from 5-4 to having match point twice and then being match point down - that period there was just like a tennis story between two great players, everything mattered. Thats why I watch the sport; thats why I love it. Murray converted on his fourth match point against Raonic during a thrilling tie-break to finally come through Greg RusedskiThe final verdictSuperhuman performance from Andy Murray. I mean, incredible. Most of the pundits thought Djokovic was going to win and I thought Djokovic was going to win because I didnt think Murray was going to recover. He stayed calm, he was aggressive, he did everything right and the belief is immense. For me, personally, this is his greatest performance. Might not have been the greatest tennis, but to end the season No 1 is phenomenal. Probably our greatest sportsman in my lifetime here in Britain. VOTE: Greatest British sportsperson VOTE: Who is Britains greatest sportsperson currently competing Gregs memorable momentId say that last game. Djokovic has to save two match points, gets to deuce, and then Ivan Lendl puts his finger to his mouth and says keep it quiet there Andy. He keeps it quiet, finishes it off and ends the season world No 1. The mental strength, the physical work - I mean, you just dont realise what hes accomplished: 24 matches in a row, five tournaments and beating the second best player on the planet. Weve never seen this in tennis before, so history is made and history is made by Murray. Heres the moment Murray won the season-ending finale for the first time Leif ShirasThe final verdictI thought it was an amazing performance from Murray. Every time, he was able to call on that resource of energy, to call on that adrenaline, to do what he can do best, and that was to put balls in play, to work the points, and Novak just didnt have any answers. Murray just locked it in tight, refused to give any errors and then was aggressive on the forehand, which was the game plan that coach Ivan Lendl wanted to instill in him. Murray spoke to Marcus Buckland, Annabel Croft and Greg Rusedski after beating Djokovic Leifs memorable momentI hate to think there was anything better than match point taken by Murray. The atmosphere in this building was absolutely electric. Ive been to a lot of great moments, at Arthur Ashe Stadium at the US Open, and Wimbledon had some great moments, but this was pretty special. To see Andy and this crowd come together was pretty special.

CANTON, N.Y. -- A black former college soccer coach on trial in the killing of his ex-girlfriends 12-year-old son has been demonized by prosecutors, his attorney said on Thursday.Oral Nick Hillarys murder trial wrapped up in St. Lawrence County Court with closing arguments. Prosecutors relied on a largely circumstantial case against Hillary, who is accused of killing Garrett Phillips in an apartment in Potsdam, a college town near the Canadian border, in 2011.Defense attorney Earl Ward echoed critics who claim authorities in the largely white community unjustly prosecuted Hillary. Hillary has shown no violent tendencies, Ward said, and prosecutors bought a case riddled with doubt.Theyre trying to demonize him in your eyes, Ward told Judge Felix Catena.The judge heard the case without a jury and is expected to make a decision next week.Hillary, who was born in Jamaica, was the head soccer coach at Clarkson University at the time of the killing.

Prosecutors say Hillary blamed the boy for the breakup.When the boy was killed, Hillary was living elsewhere in Potsdam.. Adidas NMD R2 Nere. .Prosecutors lacked DNA or fingerprint evidence. But Onondaga County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick argued there is strong evidence, including security camera footage showing the movements of Phillips and Hillary on the streets of Potsdam right before the killing.Hillary lied about his actions and used his daughter to provide him with a fake alibi, said Fitzpatrick, who is helping St. Lawrence County District Attorney Mary Rain.Either Nick Hillary is a victim of the most bizarre convergence of coincidences since man first learned to write and record history, and he sits there an innocent man, Fitzpatrick said, or, on Oct. 24, 2011, obsessed by his breakup with Tandy Cyrus ... he entered that boys apartment, he chased him down, he dragged him into a bedroom and he spent 90 seconds choking the life out of him.The district attorney at the time of the killing never brought charges.Rain campaigned on the case, though the first murder indictment she secured was dismissed by a judge. She was able to get the current indictment last year.

NAIROBI, Kenya -- Kenya is risking sanctions from the IOC after the sports minister said he had disbanded the national Olympic body and three of its senior officials were arrested and face a criminal investigation relating to alleged abuse of office during the Rio de Janeiro Games. Nike Air Max Tn Requin Homme .National Olympic Committee of Kenya chairman Kip Keino warned Monday of repercussions from the International Olympic Committee if he was also put under arrest alongside the three officials. He suggested it was political interference in the Olympic body, which is not allowed by the IOC.(The) IOC are waiting for me to be put in (jail) and when they put me in, Kenya will be banned. We will not take part in the next Olympics, said Keino, a two-time Olympic champion.The criminal investigation into the NOCK officials relates to alleged theft of team uniforms and equipment at the Olympics that was provided by sponsor Nike, prosecutors said. The officials are also accused of giving out games accreditations to people who were not part of the delegation. They were all arrested last week on returning from the Olympics in Brazil.Two of the officials, NOCK vice chairman Pius Ochieng and secretary general Francis K. Paul, appeared in a Kenyan court on Monday and were each released on $2,000 bail. They had been held in custody since Friday. The third man, Kenyan Olympic team leader Stephen Arap Soi, was also due in court but was absent, with his lawyers saying he was unwell and had been admitted to the hospital. Soi was released on bail on Sunday.A fourth official, Sois deputy, was also arrested last week but wasnt involved in Mondays court proceedings.The criminal investigation follows a proclamation last week by the sports minister, Hassan Wario, that he had disbanded the national Olympic committee following a series of problems for the Kenyan team in the lead-up to -- and during -- the Rio Olympics.Following Kenyas long-running doping crisis, the track and field team manager was sent home from the games after allegations emerged that he had sought bribes from undercover reporters in Kenya in return for helping athletes avoid doping tests. A second Kenyan official was also sent home after being found using an athletes accreditation to gain access to the Olympic Village.Some of Kenyas top Olympic athletes, including javelin silver medalist Julius Yego, were questioned by police after returning from Rio and asked to provide information relating to the charges against the NOCK officials.

NEW YORK -- College womens basketball is exploring ways to change the format of the NCAA Tournament, including moving the Final Four back a week to avoid overlap with the end of the mens tournament.In a survey given to the conferences and obtained by The Associated Press, the womens basketball oversight committee laid out a few potential changes that wouldnt take place until 2019 at the earliest. The date change would put the womens Final Four on the same weekend as the Masters.The committee is asking the schools and conferences for feedback on several alterations, including having the opening round at 32 sites and having the second round and regionals played at the same location. Moving the Final Four would add a bye week to the tournament schedule.The survey has a variety of implications, NCAA vice president for womens basketball Anucha Browne said in a phone interview Tuesday. Its an opportunity to see if the current format is where we should stay or look into doing something different. We want to talk to the practitioners on campus -- the senior womens associates, the coaches, we hope there is some feedback from the student athletes. Student athlete input is pretty important.The surveys are due on Dec. 2, and oversight committee chairwoman Jean Lenti Ponsetto, who is the athletic director at DePaul, said it would take a while to digest the information.For sure its going to take us a couple meetings to work through all the details without having a good idea what the results are going to look like, she said.Browne and Ponsetto both stressed that it would be nearly impossible for anything to change in the immediate future because regional sites and Final Four locations are already locked in through 2018, including with a new Friday-Sunday setup for the Final Four beginning in 2017.I think there seems to be a perspective in membership that we need to do something in womens basketball. The championship isnt broken and womens basketball is in a good place, Browne said. We want to deliver a strong crowd and going to a Friday-Sunday format this year will be an opportunity to see how that plays out.Shifting the entire tournament back to avoid a bye week wasnt discussed on the survey. Thats not a proposition that coaches would enjoy. Some dont even want to move the Final Four back a week.I like playing the following weekend, Louisville coach Jeff Walz said of the current format. At the same time, I see what were trying to do. Whats best foor womens basketball for attendance? Thats my only issue with that move. Nike Air Max TN Plus Ultra Rouge/Noir. Its a big break. That would be the biggest break in the entire season, including Christmas. We dont have a break that long at any time when the season starts up. It would be something completely different.Expanding to 32 teams hosting in the first round would potentially help expand the womens basketball fan base by allowing more schools to have tournament games on campus.If youre right on that bubble line, thats a great opportunity to host games, Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference commissioner Rich Ensor said. Thats a good way of growing the game.The downside of having 32 first-round sites would be the travel cost. Those are a big reason why the womens NCAA Tournament is operating at a deficit, according to Browne.Its the highest revenue producing sport for women. If you take travel out of it, its doing extremely well, Browne said.The womens tournament travel party, including the band and cheerleaders, is the same size as that of the mens NCAA Tournament. The NCAA is estimating based on the survey that going to 32 first-round sites and the revised regional format would increase costs between $1.2-1.4 million.ESPN, which broadcasts the NCAA Tournament, was opposed to most of the changes in the survey because of costs and feasibility.Our research has shown that moving the NCAA womens Final Four to Masters weekend would negatively impact ratings, and would cause a loss of the cross-promotional benefits of the mens Final Four, said Carol Stiff, ESPNs vice president of womens sports programming.According to the survey, ESPN estimates that viewership could drop 30 percent if the Final Four is moved back. The network, which has been the exclusive home to the championship since 1996, also was against the idea of having 32 first-round sites.With the bracket being released on selection Monday, we expressed to the NCAA that it would be extremely challenging, if not impossible, for us to secure all the necessary resources in such a short time frame if the first-round games were expanded to 32 sites, Stiff said.Most of the ideas were originally discussed in a White Paper put together by Big East Commissioner Val Ackerman in 2013 on the state of womens basketball.---Follow Doug Feinberg on Twitter at White NFL Jerseys CheapDisocunt Football JerseysWholesale NFL White JerseysCheap Nike NFL JerseysCheap Jerseys 2020Wholesale Throwback JerseysCheap NFL T-shirts ' ' '
Fantasy Forecaster updated Sunday, July 17, at 10:13 a. Adidas X Plr Uomo .m. ET.On tap: Baseballs traditional second half begins Friday with a 2:20 p.m. ET game between the Texas Rangers and Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. From there, Week 15 is actually a 10-day scoring period in ESPN leagues, beginning with the games on July 15 and concluding with a July 24, 8 p.m. ET game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium on ESPNs Sunday Night Baseball.In ESPN leagues that use weekly transactions, lineups will lock on July 15 and remain so until July 25 (beginning of Week 16). In offsite leagues, check your leagues constitution to determine whether this scoring period runs 10 days or is split up into a three-day week (July 15-17) and a seven-day week (July 18-24).As is often the case immediately after the All-Star break, many teams have shuffled their rotations, and in several cases teams have yet to make announcements about their scheduled starters. The Forecaster will be updated, including beyond the Friday, July 15, lock time, to account for such future announcements, but the pitching grid below includes all available information on scheduled starters as of the latest updated time at the top of the column, including projections on pitchers where applicable. As of the latest update, only six rotation spots were left to be announced. Check back as game times approach for the latest info; Ill also tweet relevant rotation updates with the #Forecaster hashtag.Gerrit Cole and Yu Darvish will begin the second half as healthy members of their respective teams rotations, with both returning to action on July 16 and facing key opponents. Cole and his Pittsburgh Pirates will be playing the second of their three-game series at Washingtons Nationals Park, while Darvish and his Rangers will be playing the second of their three-game set at Chicagos Wrigley Field.Among the weeks schedule oddities: Despite the four days of rest provided by the All-Star break, three teams play only eight times during this 10-day scoring period, all due to interleague implications: the Toronto Blue Jays, Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants. That puts all three teams at a significant volume disadvantage in a scoring period in which 13 other teams will play full 10-game schedules.Quickly jump to any section, if you want specific intelESPN lineup deadlinesInterleague impactProjected starting pitchersPitching scuttlebuttWeek 15 pitcher rankingsHitting ratingsHitting advantagesESPN leagues: Lineup deadlinesAs noted above, in ESPN leagues, Week 15 extends from Friday, July 15, through Sunday, July 24, with head-to-head matchups extending 10 days in length. Keep in mind that there is an early game on Friday, July 15 -- Rangers at Cubs has a 2:20 p.m. ET start time -- so leagues with weekly transactions will lock beginning at that time. Lineups in those formats cannot be set again until Monday, July 25.Remember that game times have tremendous influence upon daily planning, so be aware of every days first scheduled pitch. This week, they are:Friday, July 15 -- 2:20 p.m. ET (Rangers at Cubs, the days only day game) Saturday, July 16 -- 2:20 p.m. ET (Rangers at Cubs, one of four day games) Sunday, July 17 -- 1:10 p.m. ET (three of 14 day games begin at that time) Monday, July 18 -- 7 p.m. ET (New York Mets at Cubs on ESPNs Monday Night Baseball) Tuesday, July 19 -- 7 p.m. ET (Mets at Cubs on ESPNs Tuesday Night Baseball) Wednesday, July 20 -- 12:35 p.m. ET (Atlanta Braves at Cincinnati Reds, one of eight day games) Thursday, July 21 -- 12:05 p.m. ET (Dodgers at Washington Nationals, one of two day games) Friday, July 22 -- 7:05 p.m. ET (four games begin at that time) Saturday, July 23 -- 1:07 p.m. ET (Seattle Mariners at Blue Jays, one of three day games) Sunday, July 24 -- 1:05 p.m. ET (Giants at New York Yankees, one of 14 day games)Interleague impactThis weeks interleague series:Rangers at Cubs (3 games, July 15-17)Tampa Bay Rays at Colorado Rockies (3 games, July 18-20)Giants at Boston Red Sox (2 games, July 19-20)Blue Jays at Diamondbacks (2 games, July 19-20)Giants at Yankees (3 games, July 22-24)Giants probable DH(s), five games in AL ballparks: In the Giants five games in AL parks, Buster Posey has three starts and?Jarrett Parker one, and the team forfeited the DH to allow Madison Bumgarner to hit for himself. The team could utilize a similar pattern, starting Posey at DH and Trevor Brown at catcher against left-handers, splitting the DH starts against right-handers evenly between Posey (again with Brown at catcher) and Parker (resulting in starts for him and Mac Williamson) and affording Bumgarner an opportunity to bat when he starts on either July 20 or 22. The Giants appear likely to face four right-handed starters in five games during their trip to Boston and New York, so there isnt enough here to warrant a DH-influenced bump for any Giants hitter. Parker, a lefty, would be likeliest in NL-only and deep-mixed formats, but he finished the first half with .219/.324/.406 triple-slash rates in his final 14 games.Rangers traditional DH, three games in NL ballparks: Prince Fielder, who has 78 of the teams 87 DH starts, forcing him into a share of the first-base duties with Mitch Moreland and Jurickson Profar, the latter having made six of the teams past eight starts there. Fielder had two starts at first base to Morelands one from June 17-19 in St. Louis, and with the teams roster construction similar now, expect more of the same. This is a poor week to use Moreland in fantasy, and while Profar at least has a chance of grabbing a start at another infield position, hes a weak choice, too.Rays traditional DH, three games in NL ballparks: With Brandon Guyer now healthy, Corey Dickerson has returned to a DH role against right-handers, with the Rays rotating in other regulars in a half-day-off arrangement against left-handers. Since the opposing Rockies will start two left-handers in the series, Dickerson might get only one start, as the Rays tend to lean more upon righty/lefty matchups than typical teams. This is a better outfield to draw from in daily than weekly formats.Blue Jays traditional DH, two games in NL ballparks: Edwin Encarnacion (61 of the teams 83 DH starts), who has started at first base ahead of Justin Smoak in all eight Blue Jays games in NL parks. In an eight-game week in which hell get six starts at best, Smoak, a .130/.167/.348 hitter in his final 20 first-half games, is a no-go in fantasy.Projected starting pitchersThe chart below lists each of the 30 MLB teams schedules and projected starting pitchers, and provides a projected Bill James game score for each days starter.Projected starting pitchers, July 15-24 P: The starting pitchers projected Bill James game score, accounting for past history (three years worth as well as past 21 days), opponent and ballpark. A 50 is typically deemed a quality start by this measure, while a 70 is considered a dominant start.Pitching scuttlebuttStarting pitchers confirmed in their teams respective rotations who are not scheduled for a start during the July 15-17 weekend: Chase Anderson, Tyler Anderson, Jake Arrieta, Matt Boyd, Matt Cain, Tyler Chatwood, Nathan Eovaldi, Jose Fernandez, Mike Fiers, Brandon Finnegan, Christian Friedrich, Kevin Gausman, Zack Godley, Gio Gonzalez, Kendall Graveman, A.J.

The team hasnt yet named a fifth starter for July 19, though the team appeared likely to go with a bullpen day beginning with either Odrisamer Despaigne or Vance Worley. Ubaldo Jimenez and Tyler Wilson could also be candidates, either for that turn or when that spot next arrives on July 24.Chicago White Sox: Jacob Turner will fill in for Carlos Rodon (DL: wrist) on July 17. It is unclear whether Turner will pitch again the next time that turn arrives on July 22.Detroit Tigers: Jordan Zimmermann (DL: neck) and Daniel Norris (DL: ribs) wont be ready to join the Tigers rotation before July 19, so Matt Boyd and Anibal Sanchez will fill in for them on July 18 and 19. It is unclear whether Zimmermann and/or Norris will be ready to pitch on July 23 or 24.Kansas City Royals: The Royals will need a fifth starter on July 19, with Dillon Gee, Brian Flynn and Chris Young the leading candidates.Oakland Athletics: Rich Hill (blister), who was initially scheduled to start on July 15, was scratched from that turn and will be pushed back to July 17.Mariners: Felix Hernandez (DL: calf) will return to the rotation on July 20, giving the team six starters for at least the first turn of their rotation during the second half.Rangers: Yu Darvish (DL: shoulder) made a rehabilitation start for Double-A Frisco on July 10 and will be activated for a July 16 start with the Rangers. Kyle Lohse (side) is tentatively scheduled to start on July 19, but Nick Martinez might need to fill in should Lohse not be ready by then.Braves: Tyrell Jenkins will serve as the Braves fifth starter on July 19, presumably also setting him up for a July 24 start.Miami Marlins: Jose Urena and Justin Nicolino are the leading candidates to pitch when the Marlins next need a fifth starter on July 19.Pirates: Gerrit Cole (DL: triceps) will rejoin the Pirates rotation on July 16, bumping Jonathon Niese to the bullpen. The Pirates also have a July 18 day off, so they can go with four starters until July 23, at which point they will likely use either Jameson Taillon (DL: shoulder) or Tyler Glasnow.Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw (DL: back) wont make a start the first turn through the Dodgers rotation in Week 15, but theres a good chance he could make a start during the second turn through (July 21-24).Giants: Matt Cain (DL: hamstring) will make a rehabilitation start for Class A San Jose on July 15, then rejoin the Giants rotation on July 20 in Boston.San Diego Padres: Edwin Jackson will start for the Padres in Drew Pomeranzs old rotation spot on July 17, though it might only be a spot-start arrangement. That turn will next arrive on July 22, and Paul Clemens could be a candidate to pitch then.Tristans Week 15 pitcher rankingsNote: The following rankings list specific assignments, where announced (or logically projected), otherwise projected opponents without dates. If a date is not listed, it means that the pitcher is expected to be part of his teams rotation and these are his most likely opponents for Week 15. As assignments continue to be announced, these will be updated with new dates and/or opponents. If a pitcher is excluded, his Week 15 matchups were too uncertain to project/rank, but he will be added when his assignments are known.1.

Matt Cain (SF) -- Wed 7/20-@BOS (Pomeranz)Hitting ratingsThe chart below lists each of the 30 teams total number of scheduled games, home games and games versus right- and left-handed pitchers, and provides a matchup rating for the weeks games in terms of overall offense, offense for left- and right-handed hitters, and base stealing. Matchup ratings for each individual game are listed under the corresponding date.Hitting matchup chart, July 15-24 H: Hitters matchup rating, which accounts for the opposing starting pitchers past history (three years worth as well as past 21 days) as well as ballpark factors. L: Hitters matchup rating accounting only for left-handed hitters. R: Hitters matchup rating accounting for only right-handed hitters. S: Base stealing matchup rating, which accounts for the opponents catchers ability to gun down opposing base stealers. Ratings range from 1-10, with 10 representing the best possible matchup, statistically speaking, and 1 representing the worst.Hitting advantagesHere are this weeks volume plays, defined as the teams that play the most home games, or games against right- or left-handed starters:Total games: Orioles 10, Yankees 10, Rays 10, White Sox 10, Tigers 10, Minnesota Twins 10, Athletics 10, Braves 10, Marlins 10, Philadelphia Phillies 10, Cardinals 10, Rockies 10, Padres 10Home games: Yankees 10, Athletics 10, Cardinals 10, Nationals 9, Reds 9, Phillies 7, Rockies 7Versus LH: Athletics 5, Rays 4, Blue Jays 4, White Sox 4, Tigers 4, Braves 4, Nationals 4, Milwaukee Brewers 4, Cardinals 4Versus RH: Pirates 9, Orioles 8, Royals 8, Marlins 8, Reds 8, Rockies 8, Red Sox 7, Indians 7, Twins 7, Angels 7, Rangers 7, Giants 7The Reds should get off to a good start offensively in the second half, in large part because theyll play their nine games in Week 15 at hitting-friendly Great American Ball Park. Six of those will be against the Brewers (4.50, 21st) and Diamondbacks (4.77, 27th), both of whom rank among the bottom 10 in baseball in ERA, which only helps matters. Icing on the cake: The Reds also appear likely to miss Zack Greinke, the Diamondbacks ace who is on the DL, and Braves ace Julio Teheran. Though the Reds did finish the first half on a bit of a down note, batting just .238/.304/.359 while averaging 4.00 runs per game in their final two weeks before the break, these are substantially better matchups than the team saw during that stretch. The home cooking should favor some of the teams standouts there thus far: Tucker Barnhart is a .330/.372/.500 hitter in 28 games at Great American; Jay Bruce has .271 isolated power and a 6.6 percent home run rate; Adam Duvall has .312 isolated power and a ridiculous 8.1 percent home run rate; and Billy Hamilton has a wOBA 69 points higher at home (.320) than on the road (.251).If the Reds dont have the most favorable set of hitting matchups, the Braves do -- theyre the ones with the series at Coors Field, four games to be exact. The key difference, though, is a smaller number of viable fantasy options on the Braves roster, led, obviously, by Freddie Freeman (.311/.400/.608 triple-slash rates in his final 20 games of the first half). Two other Braves who finished the first half on a high note also warrant your attention facing a schedule like this: Jace Peterson batted .311/.354/.527 in his final 19 games, while Nick Markakis hit .288/.318/.463 in his final 20. Theyll almost assuredly bat first (Peterson), third (Freeman) and fourth (Markakis) for most of the starts this week.For those who play in leagues that divide the July 15-24 scoring period into two separate weeks, July 15-17 and July 18-24, heres a quick look at the best hitting matchups from either of those two scoring periods:The Reds and Brewers have easily the best schedules of the July 15-17 weekend, thanks to their series against one another at Great American Ball Park. The Dodgers, who play three at Arizonas Chase Field while avoiding Greinke, arent far behind, and the Cleveland Indians have the American Leagues best schedule, thanks to three games at the Twins.The Braves have far and away the best schedule of the July 18-24 week, thanks to the four-game trip to Coors, but the Rockies, who also play the entirety of their seven-game schedule at Coors, arent far behind. The Reds, Red Sox and Indians also have rather favorable schedules during that week.

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court has rejected a long shot appeal from the Washington Redskins challenging a law that bars offensive trademarks. But the justices could still resolve the same issue in another case the court took up last week.The court on Monday turned away an unusual request to hear the teams case even before a federal appeals court has weighed in. The Redskins are appealing the governments decision to cancel its trademarks over concerns that the name disparagess American Indians.

AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State defensive end Mitchell Meyers has had a lot more on his mind than just football over the past 18 months.Finally cancer-free, he is hoping to be much more than just an inspiration to the Cyclones in 2016.Meyers, who was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma in February 2015, wasnt cleared to fully rejoin his teammates until fall camp. But Meyers fight to beat cancer was such a stirring tale that his fellow Cyclones recently named him a captain.Iowa State (3-9 in 2015) is also expecting big things on the field from Meyers, a senior who on Monday officially regained his starting status for Saturdays opener against Northern Iowa.Ive actually been thinking about this. ... If you were to tell me Id get cancer two years ago, I would have never believed you. And if you were to tell me that Im in the position Im in now six months ago, I definitely wouldnt have believed you, Meyers said. Right now Im in a really good position to succeed.Meyers first broke out for Iowa State as a freshman in 2013, playing in all 12 games. He moved into the starting lineup as an interior lineman as a sophomore, and he was expected to be one of the key defenders for the Cyclones in 2015.But during winter workouts that season, Meyers noticed that his neck was unusually sore. Doctors diagnosed him with cancer, and Meyers was forced to put football on hold.Though Meyers couldnt practice with his teammates, he never missed a workout while battling his disease in both Iowa and his home state of Texas for most of 2015. During that time, the coach who recruited him, Paul Rhoads, was fired. Meyers wasnt even able to meet new coach Matt Campbell until the middle of spring practice, which he sat out as part of his recovery.MMeyers earned the immediate respect of Campbell, who first got to know Meyers on the phone as he went through treatment. Arizona Cardinals Korey Cunningham Jersey. This young man that had this upbeat spirit about himself going through this, and it can put you in your place really fast. Tough days come, and are they really that tough? Heres what this guy is going through, Campbell said. Mitchells last words to me [on the phone] were, Im coming back to play. Im not coming back to be just a story.Meyers said Monday that, despite having to learn a new system and build his body back to where it was before he got sick, the muscle memory he built up playing football has helped.He didnt start fall camp atop the depth chart, but as Campbell and his coaches watched Meyers go through workouts, they realized that they not only had a starter on their hands but also one that had the toughness and character the new staff wants for its program.One of the best stories in college football, Campbell said.Meyers acknowledges that he might never be the player that he was before he got sick, though he also said that he feels as good as he has ever felt heading into a season.He will play his final season wearing No. 58, which Iowa State hands to the lineman who best embodies the spirit of beloved former line coach Curtis Bray. Bray was 43 when he died in 2014 of a pulmonary embolism.Battling cancer is a lot like playing football. Obviously the implications are a lot bigger battling cancer, but you learn a lot about mental toughness playing football, Meyers said. It helped me a lot to get through what I went through, and vice versa.

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Patrick Mahomes and Texas Tech have lost plenty of high-scoring games. Winning a defensive struggle was a new experience.Clayton Hatfield kicked a 37-yard field goal in the second overtime, after Mahomes scrambled 15 yards for a score in the first extra session, and the Red Raiders beat TCU 27-24 on Saturday to break a three-game losing streak.I cant remember an ugly win like this that we had here, so to find a way when everything was kind of going against us says a lot about their character, coach Kliff Kingsbury said. Hopefully we can build off this.A week after their fourth loss in less than two seasons when scoring more than 50 points, the Red Raiders (4-4, 2-3) overcame a season-low 345 yards and had their fewest points in a victory since a 20-10 home win over TCU in 2013.Mahomes matched an FBS record with 734 yards passing on 52 of 88 passing, and set the FBS mark with 819 total yards, in last weeks 66-59 loss to Oklahoma in a game when those two teams combined for 1,708 total yards.Against the Horned Frogs, Mahomes was 24 of 39 for 206 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.It was a pass play called and it wasnt open, Mahomes said of his TD run in overtime. They were covering up pretty much everything all day. I just opened up and I just ran.TCU (4-4, 2-3) forced the second overtime on Desmon Whites incredible 25-yard TD catch from backup quarterback Foster Sawyer. White caught the pass despite having a defender on his hip, and secured the ball against his helmet to complete the score. The play stood after officials did a replay review of the catch.With the first possession in the second overtime, TCU came up empty when Brandon Hatfield -- not related to the Tech kicker, shanked a 40-yard field goal attempt , his third miss of the game.The previous two times the teams met in Fort Worth, they combined for 109 points both times. Tech won 56-53 in triple overtime in 2012, and TCU broke Big 12 and school records in an 82-27 win two years ago. The Frogs won 55-52 in Lubbock last year.Sawyer took over after dual-threat quarterback Kenny Hills last paass was intercepted . Vapormax Plus Blanche Pas Cher. Hill was 16 of 29 passing for 160 yards, and has now struggled in three consecutive games since back-to-back 400-yard passing performances.For years, you find ways to win them, then you find ways to lose them Patterson said. Weve got to get back on the track of finding ways to win them. Its pretty simple.THE TAKEAWAYTexas Tech: Mahomes showed his grit in helping the Red Raiders win. A month after hurting his shoulder, Mahomes took another hard hit in the second overtime, but said he was OK. The win helped the Red Raiders in their pursuit for a bowl berth, now needing only to split their last four games to get bowl eligible.TCU: The Horned Frogs defense had one of its best games overall, making some changes that surprised Tech. Our whole thing was make them beat themselves, make them have patience, make them run the ball, Patterson said. But the inconsistency of the offense has to be concerning. The Frogs have been held to 24 points in three consecutive games after scoring at least 33 in their first five.MISSED FGs TO TDsBoth of Texas Techs touchdowns in regulation came on 80-yard drives after missed field goals. Mahomes threw a 33-yard TD pass to Reginald Davis early in the second quarter to tie the game at 7-7. The latter miss was in the fourth quarter, leading to Mahomes 8-yard TD to Dylan Cantrell with 1:28 left in regulation to tie the game. Mahomes also had an 11-yard run to convert fourth-and-3 on that tying drive.COACHS CATCHMahomes was scrambling away from pressure when he threw a pass away in the fourth quarter. The throw toward the TCU sideline was caught by Patterson, who reached up with two hands to make the grab.UP NEXTTexas Tech returns home next Saturday to play Texas.TCU plays at No. 8 Baylor, going to Waco next Saturday for the first time since their 61-58 loss there two years ago when the Bears overcame a 21-point deficit in the final 11 minutes.---More AP college football: White NFL Jerseys CheapDisocunt Football JerseysWholesale NFL White JerseysCheap Nike NFL JerseysCheap Jerseys 2020Wholesale Throwback JerseysCheap NFL T-shirts ' ' '
PISCATAWAY, N. Maillot Thomas Lemar .J. -- Rutgers first-year coach Chris Ash doesnt care that No. 9 Penn State has a chance to win the Big Ten Conference title, and he has even less interest in seeing his Scarlet Knights play the role of spoiler on Saturday night.All Ash cares about is that this is Rutgers final home game and he wants his seniors to go out with a win.It has nothing to do with going to bowl game or anything like that.The Scarlet Knights (2-8, 0-7) arent going anywhere this year. Its been a tough first season with the former Ohio State co-defensive coordinator as their coach. They have not been very competitive, so knocking off Penn State (8-2, 6-1) would make their season.Were not talking about spoilers, Ash said. Were playing for ourselves and were playing for our seniors. Were playing to try to get better. But this week it is about the seniors. We have a lot of them. A lot of them that have done a tremendous amount of positive things here at Rutgers.Rutgers will have to improve to be competitive this week. It has lost seven in a row, including a 49-0 loss to struggling Michigan State last weekend. The results have been even worse against the conferences elite. It was beaten 58-0 by No.2 Ohio State and 78-0 by No. 4 Michigan.Ohio State and Michigan are currently tied with Penn State for first place in the Big Ten East. If the Nittany Lions can beat Rutgers and Michigan State in their final two games, and Michigan were to lose one of its last two, they would win the division.This is going to be an emotional game, Penn State coach James Franklin said. There are a lot of ties on both sides. Theyre going to come out being aggressive in how they call the game, the decisions they make and how their players play. We want to start fast each week, because we want to start fast each week, and thats going to give us the best chance to be successful consistently. No other things factor into it. Its the best thing to do to give us the best chance to be successful.Heres some things to watch in the game:SAQUON BARKLEY: The Nittany Lions running back has run for 733 yards and six touchdowns in the last five games. He leads the Big Ten with 1,113 yards rushing. The problem is Barkley, who ran for 195 yards and two TDs in the game against Rutgers last year, took a couple of big hits as Indiana loaded the box last week. Franklin might decide to take some of the load off Barkley and let freshmen Miles Sanders and Andre Robinson get more carries.RUTGERS D LINE: With Penn States offensive line in flux because of injuries, defensive tackle Darius Hamilton and end Julian Pennix-Odrick will be looking to make a statement in their final home games. Hamilton has 43 tackles and a half sack in overcoming a knee injury that caused him to miss almost all of last season. Pinnix-Odrick has 41 tackles and a team-high 4? sacks.BIG CATCHES: Tight end Mike Gesicki has stepped up in the last two games despite playing on a sore ankle. He has had nine catches for 153 yards, including five for 88 yards last weekend. He has career highs of 37 catches for 499 yards, including four for more than 40 yards. The junior is tied for the Big Ten lead and tied for No. 9 nationally in receptions by a tight end. He ranks No. 1 in the conference and fifth in the FBS in receiving yards by a tight end.AUTOMATIC: Placekicker Tyler Davis has yet to miss a kick that has not been blocked in his career. He is 24-for-26 on field goal attempts, with both misses being blocks. He has also made all 46 of his PAT attempts. He is a semifinalist for the Lou Groza Award, which goes to the nations top kicker.---Freelancer Travis Johnson in State College, Pennsylvania, contributed to this report.---More AP college football: and .

The 18-year-old he didnt look out of place in the 78 minutes of Premier League Football he experienced, however, the game didnt offer anything in terms of a spectacle. It was fairly dull for large portions, with few goalmouth chances and most of the action through a very congested midfield.The home side had the best of the chances in the first half, but nothing that had Brad Guzan too worried, whilst Middlesbrough had too wait until midway through the second half before managing to get a shot on target. Maillot Paul Pogba. A few changes in the second half failed to add anything much to the game, with Saido Berahino drawing jeers from his own supporters at times. Brendan Galloway looked decent on his West Brom Premier League debut, and Adam Forshaw impressed for Middlesbrough once again.Middlesbrough (1-2-0) certainly would have taken five points from their opening three games before the season started, and a point away at West Brom (1-1-1) is not a bad result, but the Baggies fans will be wanting a lot more from their beloved side as the season develops.

Luke Bateman started the year playing in front of only a few hundred people. Christian Kirk Jersey .So does the prospect of making his NRL finals debut with more than 28,000 watching on at GIO Stadium on Saturday faze him?Ill be fine, laughed the Canberra forward, who has become a first-team regular since being plucked from reserve grade in April.The Raiders are expecting a record turnout for their qualifying final against Cronulla, with almost all seats sold by Tuesday afternoon.So high was demand that the club decided to release a small number of standing room tickets.They are also exploring the option of adding temporary seating for the highly anticipated clash.Its the first time since 2012 the Raiders have hosted a qualifying final - which was also against the Sharks.They attracted 24,450 fans to that game, a couple of thousand short of the grounds rugby league record (26,746) set in their 2010 semi-final loss to Wests Tigers.Cross-code rivals the Brumbies have held the stadium record of 28,753 since their victorious 2004 Super 12 final.Its pretty exciting if anything - not daunting, Bateman said on Tuesday.Im not nervous. A home crowd, theyll be behind us so therell be plenty of support.Im pretty pumped up for it, actually.Batemans confidence is palpable across Raiders HQ, following the clubs run of 10 wins to secure second spot on the ladder and a home final.Winger Jordan Rapana said the expected crowd would have a massive impact on the team, who he believes have been feeding off the support.Our last home game against Parramatta, they eventually got us over the line, so having a big crowd supporting us will mean a lot, he said.Hooker Josh Hodgson will be among those experiencing NRL finals footy for the first time, after just two seasons in Australia.But the star rake is confident the outside pressure or hype about the Raiders title chances wont overwhelm him or his younger teammates including Bateman.I think theyll be absolutely fine, he said.Theyve got great guys around them and they know all they have to do is their job.It doesnt matter what game it is, whether youre playing for nothing or to win a comp, youve just got to do your own job every week and be consistent at doing that.

SHANGHAI -- Dustin Johnsons victory in the most recent World Golf Championship at Firestone this summer means he has to capture only the Dell Match Play to become the first player to sweep the four world events.For Rory McIlroy, the HSBC Champions that starts Thursday is the last chance to make it three straight years with a WGC title.Its all quite impressive until compared with Tiger Woods.I know Tiger has won like 18 of these things, Im not sure, McIlroy said. Second place is probably down around three or four.McIlroy has a keen sense of history, even when it comes to a series that by golf standards is still relatively new. Woods won a WGC title 18 times in a span of 15 years. Johnson and Geoff Ogilvy are next in line with three.In some respects, the World Golf Championships can be barometer for the world of golf.During the height of his career, Woods had no peer. He won a majority of the WGCs at a time when he was ruling golf. Now, they seem to be spread out among top players. Johnson has three. McIlroy and Jason Day have two apiece. Henrik Stenson, Phil Mickelson, Darren Clarke, Adam Scott and Ernie Els also have two. Martin Kaymer, Bubba Watson and Justin Rose are among major champions who also have a WGC title.Golf is loaded with great players, just none that stands out so much clearly over anyone else.I guess it is a reflection of where we are, McIlroy said. Someone like Tiger comes around, if its not once-in-a-lifetime, its once-in-a-generation. I think with technology and with the knowledge thats in the game nowadays with the coaching, its harder and harder to separate yourself from the rest of the pack.And someone like me sitting here, Im saying that sort of grudgingly because I would have loved to be on the other side of that, where there wasnt so much parity, he said. But it seems like anyone that tees it up has a great chance to win. Overall for golf, thats not a bad thing.The theory that anyone can win on any given week was illustrated last year at Sheshan International.Russell Knox was the last one to get into the field at the HSBC Champions and produced his first PGA Tour victory, holding off Johnson and Kevin Kisner. Knox went on to win again at the Travelerrs Championships, had three runner-up finishes and now is No. Chase Edmonds Jersey. 20 in the world.The HSBC Champions this year has its strongest field ever, even with a few top players taking time off to rest (Jordan Spieth and Mickelson) or letting injuries heal (Day and Rose). It has 40 of the top 50 in the world on a course that has been drenched with rain over the last week.Woods never won this WGC, though he had only two chances until he stopped playing because of injury or other priorities.McIlroy introduced an interesting theory on why Woods won 41 percent of the time in the WGCs, nearly 50 percent in stroke play. There is no cut, no stress, and players know they have four rounds to work their way into position.I never want to criticize Tigers game at all, but if there was one thing or one negative you would say about him was that he probably wasnt the fastest starter in normal golf tournaments, McIlroy said. Here, you dont really have that pressure of trying to play your way into a tournament. You know youre getting four rounds, so youve got plenty of time to make birdies and play well.As his answer was being translated into Chinese, McIlroy wanted to add one more theory that didnt require nearly as much thought.Can I just add one more thing to why he won so many? McIlroy said. Because he was the best.McIlroy is coming into the HSBC Champions hopeful that three weeks off didnt cost him momentum. He won the Tour Championship (and the FedEx Cup) and played well in the Ryder Cup. Hes not the only player coming off a break. The field includes 19 players from the Ryder Cup, and Justin Thomas, who is coming off a victory in Malaysia.Stenson, who won a silver claret jug at Royal Troon and a silver medal in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in a span of five weeks, will be playing a regular event for the first time in nearly two months and is feeling more fresh than rusty.Its my sixth time in Shanghai, and I dont think Ive finished worse than 11th, he said. So Ive played well here, but not quite well enough to win. Hopefully, I can try to change that this week.

The colours of the rainbow will be seen this weekend at football stadiums up and down the United Kingdom. Cheap Falcons Hoodies Store . The Rainbow Laces campaign carries a simple message: Make sport everyones game. The aim is to create awareness of homophobia and a pathway to stop abuse and change attitudes.The issues are huge. Homophobia in football still rife Rainbow Laces survey shows 72% of football fans have witnessed homophobic abuse at games Football Association chairman Greg Clarke told a committee of MPs in October that he wouldnt recommend that a male gay footballer come out publicly right now. The comments were viewed as clumsy and awkward; however, a relevant point had been made and a conversation had begun. Does an environment exist where a current footballer would feel comfortable to come out as a gay man? Thomas Hitzlsperger revealed he was gay after announcing his retirement from professional football We have been and are working so hard so that if a player felt they wanted to have the conversation about coming out, we would be there and offer any and all the support we could, the FAs Head of Equality Sue Ravenlaw said.We understand it would be such a difficult decision, but I reiterate all the support would be there. Hitzlsperger told Sky Sports in September that footballs battle against homophobia is still in its infancy There are currently many anti-homophobia charities striving to create that suitable and safe environment, in the event that a professional footballer does reveal himself to be gay. Football is in a bubble when it comes to gay men playing the game. Were used to stubborn professions and working with them, the army, navy, the Church of England, said Ruth Hunt, chief executive of Stonewall, the charity behind the idea of the Rainbow Laces campaign. LA Galaxys Robbie Rogers, formerly of Leeds United, became the first openly gay professional footballer to play in MLS We understand how difficult it could be for just the one to come out. It may be easier if a group of players came out together.While no professional footballer currently playing in England has revealed they are gay, many gay men play the game every weekend. Take a look at the trailer for the new short film WONDERKID, which portrays the inner turmoil of a young gay footballer Stonewall FC is the worlds oldest openly gay football club, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Eric Najib, who manages the clubs first XI, says attitudes towards the LGBT community in sport have changed massively in recent years, but believes homophobic abuse is still prevalent. WONDERKID: Whats the story? Sky Sports talent involved in new short film about a young gay footballer He said: Some see homophobic abuse as funny, a bit of fun banter, but its not.If a current gay footballer came out now, it would be massive - what a role model for many, many youngsters who may be right now confused. Instead of losing them to football or other sports, theyd have a role model. I could maybe see in the next two or three years, perhaps a player coming out, but it would have to be their choice. They must not be forced. Also See: Homophobia in football still rife Amaechi addresses homophobia WONDERKID: Whats the story? Townsend: Positive environment key Foyesade Oluokun Hoodie .

The season came to a crashing halt for the Toronto Maple Leafs Monday night in Boston. Donna Adidas NMD CS2 City Sock PK Linen/Esecuzione Bianco CQ2039 . With a seemingly insurmountable 4-1 lead over the Bruins midway through the third period, Nathan Hortons goal made Leaf fans a little nervous. When Milan Lucic scored with less than two minutes to play, the clock seemed to stop running. And when Patrice Bergeron scored the game-tying goal in the final minute of regulation, the collapse was all but complete. Bergerons overtime winner almost seemed inevitable. No doubt, Leaf fans used some choice words as they watched their teams season disintegrate in a matter of minutes. But before Monday nights loss, they also used many superlatives to describe their team that was not expected to make the playoffs. Throughout this lockout-shortened campaign, many different words have been used to describe the Leafs season but if you could use just one, what would it be? If you go back to January, the season began with low expectations so perhaps encouraging would be the appropriate word at this point. The team showed improvement throughout the season and, with one week to go in the schedule, had an opportunity to finish first in the Northeast Division and claim the second seed in the Eastern Conference. Despite finishing fifth in the conference, it marked the first time in nine years there was playoff hockey in Toronto. If you had been told the Leafs would lose in the first round of the playoffs back then, that would seem like a good accomplishment. However, when the Leafs rebounded from a 3-1 series deficit and held a sizeable lead in the third period of Game 7, advancing to the second round seemed like a foregone conclusion. But knowing how Game 7 ended, maybe collapse is the best way to define the season. With all the momentum in Blue and White, many of the feel-good thoughts were replaced by bitter disappointment as many realized a rare opportunity had been missed. With higher expectations comes a greater chance to be letdown, a feeling Leafs fans all too well. With the team exceeding the early expectations but not meeting the new levels, rollercoaster could be the operative word. They started off slowly, climbed up during the regular season to the summit of the playoffs before crashing down at an alarming rate. There were plenty of ups and downs but it was a great ride. For those who have witnessed all the trials and tribulations of the Leafs over the years, perhaps typical is the right word to use. As the team with the longest Stanley Cup drought, failures have been more plentiful than successes so its not surprising that they would steal defeat from the jaws of victory. The law of averages just doesnt seem to hold for the Leafs. These are just some of the words that could be used to describe the 2012-13 season in Toronto but there are plenty more words in the dictionary. If you could use just one word to the describe the Leafs season, what would it be? As always, its Your! Call. Adidas NMD Offerte .
