Hes 10-3 with a 3.62 earned run average in 17 starts this season.Greinke made two recent rehab starts for Triple-A Reno and the Arizona League Diamondbacks. He pitched a total of eight innings and allowed five runs and 13 hits, struck out 10 and walked two. Vapormax Outlet Italia . In the response filed Wednesday to the complaint by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley, attorneys say the former University of Florida player is invoking his Fifth Amendment right that protects people from incriminating themselves.

The Montreal Canadiens announced on Friday that the veteran forward will return to the teams line-up on Saturday night when the Habs visit the Nashville Predators. http://www.airmaxshoponlineitalia.it/scontate-max-tn-outlet.html . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. MINNEAPOLIS -- Like a lot of NFL veterans on teams that travel out of town to start summer practices, Adrian Petersons enthusiasm for the approaching season has often been temporarily dampened by the drive to training camp.Arrival at the familiar site of dorm room life, two-a-day workouts and overall drudgery, however brief, can prompt unpleasant feelings.This time, vibes around the Minnesota Vikings might be good enough to make even a player with 10 years of experience embrace the trip.Im excited as far as what we have and the vision that we have for this season, Peterson said. So that makes things better. Itll make it a lot better going into camp this year.The Vikings will report to Minnesota State University on July 28, bringing expectations of postseason success as high as theyve been since 2010. That became an ugly year for the Vikings. The picture for 2016 has a pretty frame, and now its time to fill in the illustration.Peterson sounded as resolute as ever when he declared recently the Vikings should be seriously considered as a Super Bowl contender. Theyre coming off an NFC North title, their first since 2009.We have the pieces and what it takes to accomplish that. So theres nothing wrong with saying it, Peterson said last month. If any other guy on this team doesnt feel that way, then we need to be trading him and bringing somebody in that feels that way as well.The timing is right for Peterson, who rushed for a league-high 1,485 yards and 11 touchdowns last season and turned 31 in March. His contract will carry an $18 million salary cap hit in 2017, so his future with the Vikings beyond this upcoming season is unclear.I dont see an end in my future anywhere soon, but of course I know Im coming around the last lap. And Im itching to get a couple before Im done playing this game, said Peterson, referring to a championship that the franchise has unsuccessfully chased since its inception in 1961.Here are some key angles to follow around the Vikings this season:BRIDGING THE GAP: Teddy Bridgewater finished in the bottom third of the NFL in most quarterback categories in 2015, and his accuracy on deep throws was perhaps the most problematic. He connected on just 11 of 42 passes that traveled 21-plus yards in the air, according to STATS research.For Bridgewater to take a meaningful step forward in year three, and for the Vikings offense to improve upon its 29th-place ranking in total yards last season, hell have to hit more long targets. Air Max 95 Outlet Italia. Drafting Laquon Treadwell in the first round ought to be a boon for Bridgewater.He wins games, and to me thats the most important thing, coach Mike Zimmer said. Theres a lot more to playing quarterback than just throwing the ball through the wall.ON THE LINE: The biggest weakness over Bridgewaters first two years, the offensive line has been significantly upgraded. Its now the most expensive in the league. Alex Boone left San Francisco for a lucrative deal to be the left guard. Andre Smith, who left Cincinnati, is the front-runner at right tackle. Hell compete with Phil Loadholt, who like center John Sullivan has returned from an injury that sidelined him for the 2015 season.WILL WALSH BOUNCE BACK?: For all of the highlights from last season, the most memorable moment was the improbable miss by Blair Walsh of a 27-yard field goal that wouldve given the Vikings a victory over Seattle in a frigid first-round game in the playoffs. Walsh followed an off year in 2014 with a solid regular season in 2015. But a strong start to 2016 would go a long way toward ensuring hes not negatively affected by that heartbreaking shank.THE TIME IS NOW: The teams backbone lies in recent first-round draft picks such as Bridgewater, linebacker Anthony Barr, cornerback Xavier Rhodes and safety Harrison Smith. The soul rests in the veterans such as Peterson, linebacker Chad Greenway, defensive end Brian Robison and cornerback Terence Newman whose Super Bowl pursuit is still hot. Greenway and Newman signed one-year contracts, deferring retirement to remain with a team thats in prime position to make a run.BANK ON IT: The ship-shaped, glass-fronted $1.1 billion U.S. Bank Stadium will soon be unveiled, with the Vikings set for their first performance on Aug. 28 for an exhibition game against San Diego and the regular-season home opener on Sept. 18 against rival Green Bay.---Online:AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '

After a week of lead-up, the 25th anniversary of Wayne Gretzkys Edmonton exit is finally here. China Shoes Black Friday . But while it was the end of an era in Edmonton, it was not the end of a dynasty (a point that countless TSN.ca users have vehemently made over the past week). The Oilers would get stunned by Gretzkys Los Angeles Kings in the first round of the 1989 Stanley Cup playoffs and watch, stunned, as their provincial rivals the Calgary Flames lifted their one and only Stanley Cup to date. One year later, however, the dynasty would get its extension. After a regular season buoyed by a Hart Trophy performance from captain Mark Messier, the Oilers attended to unfinished business. After sweeping Gretzky and the Kings in the Smythe Division Final, the Oilers topped Chicago to take their sixth Clarence Campbell Bowl in eight years before dispatching the Presidents Trophy-winning Boston Bruins in the Final. The next two seasons would see the Oilers in the Conference Final, but 1992-93 would see the official end of the Oilers dynasty, kicking off a four-year run of early tee-times. So, what happened? The Gretzky trade is seen as many as the first straw in the unraveling of the Oiler dynasty, but in truth the beginnings can be traced to Gretzkys final season in Edmonton when Hall-of-Fame blue liner Paul Coffey withstood a contract dispute with owner Peter Pocklington, eventually forcing the team to deal him to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Edmonton got a solid return on Coffey with Craig Simpson. The Oilers also got blue line depth in Moe Mantha and Chris Joseph as well as forward Dave Hannan, but it was Simpson that paid immediate dividends, scoring 43 goals in 59 games for the 1987-88 Oilers. The next big move was Gretzky, of course. While the idea of "fair value" in trading possibly the greatest player of all-time cannot really be assessed, the Oilers did get a lot for Gretzky. Jimmy Carson - who still holds the NHL record for career goals before a players 20th birthday - was coming off a 55-goal season and would score 49 in his lone full season as an Oiler. Even the return on Carsons request to be dealt bounced the Oilers way with three crucial pieces to the 1990 Champions in Joe Murphy, Adam Graves and Petr Klima. Martin Gelinas would play 20 NHL seasons and over 1,200 career games. Adversity would hit the Oilers again in 1990-91 as Messier spent a large part of the season battling injuries and the dynasty was forced out. Jari Kurri found himself in a contract dispute with Pocklington and spent the entire season playing in Italy. The team performed well and made the Conference Final, but the writing for the glory days was on the wall. The levees broke in the following offseason as Kurri, Messier, Glenn Anderson, Grant Fuhr and Steve Smith were all dealt away between May and October and Graves would sign with the Rangers. Once again, the Oilers - despite trading their core - received value. Dealing Fuhr (who had lost his starters job to Bill Ranford) and Anderson netted them Vincent Damphousse, a 23-year-old with five years of NHL experience and three 25-plus-goal seasons under his belt. Kurri would net them Scott Mellanby, who would go on to a 22-year NHL career that would see him captain two different teams. Smith netted them enforcer Dave Manson and a pick that the Oilers would use to select Kirk Maltby, while the return on Messier would include Bernie Nicholls. The 30-year-old was a ways off from his 150-point days, but had still put up over 25 goals and over 70 points the previous year. Replacing a championship core that had been together for over a decade was a difficult ask for the Oilers, but the pieces they got in return - especially Carson, Simpson and Damphousse - seemed to be a good start on paper to keeping the team competitive. The undoing of the Oilers, apart from trading away the championship core was a combination of a decline of bad luck and impatience. Carsons early exit was not something the Oilers banked on and their handling of the three firsts was somewhat imprudent. They dealt the 1989 first prior to draft day, selected long-time NHLer Martin Rucinsky in 1991 but dealt him after just two games in an Oiler uniform and got just two games out of 1993 first-rounder Nick Stajduhar. Klima and Graves helped greatly in 1990, but they were both out of Edmonton within three years of their acquisition. Simpsons output stayed productive after his record 1987-88 output, racking up between 29 and 35 goals in each of the next three years, but he would be slowed by injury shortly thereafter and would have his career cut short after a back injury as a member of the Buffalo Sabres. Damphousse - like Carson - was a star in his debut Oilers season, scoring 38 goals in 1991-92. But like Carson, he would last just one year, getting dealt to the Montreal Canadiens for Shayne Corson the following summer and becoming a key piece in the Habs 1993 Cup run. Compounding this was the teams dry spell on the draft floor. The Oilers did not draft, develop and - most importantly - keep a high-calibre player between 1983 (when they drafted Esa Tikkanen) and 1993 (when they drafted Jason Arnott). As for the core of the dynasty, they would get their last hurrah – just not in Edmonton. The 1994 Cup Champion New York Rangers would boast seven players that had won Cups in Edmonton: Messier, Graves, Tikkanen, Anderson, Craig MacTavish, Kevin Lowe and Jeff Beukeboom. The Oilers would rebuild and revive in the mid-to-late 1990s with the likes of Doug Weight and Bill Guerin and later with Ales Hemsky and Anson Carter, but it was clear that the dynasty days were a thing of the past. Wholesale Shoes Black Friday . Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead. Cheap Shoes Black Friday . 9. Price, heading to the 2014 Olympics for Canada, was named the First Star after posting wins in three starts with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .971 save percentage. https://www.cheapshoesblackfriday.com/ . Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. Chicago Cubs fans will watch Wednesdays NL wild-card game (8 p.m. ET, ESPN/WatchESPN) intently, as the winner determines who their team will face in the NLDS.So who would you prefer: the San Francisco Giants or New York Mets?The Cubs were 4-3 against the Giants this season and 2-5 against the Mets. San Francisco has won three World Series since 2010, while New York bounced Chicago out of the postseason with a sweep in the NLCS last year.As for flaws, thee Giants bullpen nearly cost them a playoff spot down the stretch, while the Mets rotation is without key starters in Jacob deGrom, Matt Harvey and Steven Matz.

Marco Fu lost his cue tip but not his nerve as he levelled his World Snooker Championship semi-final against Mark Selby at 8-8. Duke Snider Dodgers Jersey . Fu had started Friday afternoon trailing 5-3 but outplayed the world No 1 and was looking to take the lead in the 15th frame when the unthinkable happened.While chalking his cue and glancing at the table mid-break, Fu nudged the tip off and joined the Crucible crowd in shock as he realised what had happened. Stephen Hendry and Steve Davis, owners of 13 world titles between them, were equally surprised, suggesting the incident could upset Fus progress in the best-of-33 encounter, which resumes on Saturday morning.But, after an interlude for running repairs, he showed no concerns with his amended equipment and closed out the frame with a break of 81. Mark Selby in action against Fu Selby, who had been short of his best throughout, won the last to ensure they would resume with nothing between them, but not before both men made big errors.Fu looked to have it won before he missed the final red, a mistake his rival then matched before a sloppy safety shot from Fu finally settled matters in Selbys favour.He finished with a break of 81, his best of the day compared to a pair of centuries from Fu, who made 135 and 114.Alan McManus had earlier scored three centuries of his own as he clawed back a six-frame deficit to trail Ding Junhui 9-7 in a pulsating match. Alan McManus eyes up a shot against Ding Junhui McManus, at 45 the oldest man to make the last four at the Crucible since Ray Reardon in 1985, looked down and out as Ding took three of the first four frames to build an imposing 9-3 advantage.But the Scot won four in a row after the interval to bring himself right back into the match ahead of their resumption on Friday evening.The four centuries scored by McManus and Ding between them - added to Dings four from Thursdays opening session - matched the record for the number of 100-plus breaks in a single World Championship match.Ding, 16 years his opponents junior, had struck first with a 138 clearance to extend his overnight lead to 7-2, only for McManus to fire straight back with a 107 to bring the deficit back to four frames.But the Chinese star looked in irresistible form as back-to-back clearances of 90 and 97 took him into the mid-session interval having extended his advantage to six.McManus, who had defied the odds to beat John Higgins and reach his first semi-final in 23 years, won the next and a superb 136 clearance - including a trick-shot black - brought it back to 9-5.And as Ding showed signs of faltering, McManus took a second chance to make it 9-6 then came close to making a maximum in the final frame of the session but over cut the final black. However, the a 125 finish was good enough to leave a top-quality match thrillingly poised for the evening session.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin isnt saying much about the prospect of opening against his former team, Southern California. New defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt isnt dropping any hints of what he really thinks about his personnel.The Crimson Tides two play callers took the podium Sunday for their annual -- and only -- preseason availability but offered few insights three practices into preseason camp.Pruitt takes over one of the nations top defenses featuring NFL prospects like defensive end Jonathan Allen and linebackers Reuben Foster and Tim Williams. How much talent and potential does he see from his defense? Pruitt offers a non-answer answer.Theres guys here who have some experience, said Pruitt, who ran Mark Richts defense at Georgia the past two seasons. To me, as coach (Nick) Saban, when he recruits guys, hes looking for the right intangibles. Theres a certain criteria for each position. The guys wouldnt be here if they didnt meet those criteria.Kiffin, whos shown a knack for poking at opponents over the years, said he hasnt thought much about facing his old team on Sept. 3 in Arlington, Texas. He was fired unceremoniously at the airport after landing in the early morning hours following USCs loss to Arizona State just over three years ago.Kiffin didnt bite when asked if hed get a little extra satisfaction from a win over the Trojans.I really have not thought much about it, he said. It wont be about me, just like it wasnt about me when we were at Tennessee, its not about coach (Saban) when we go to LSU. Its about our players playing really well. All we can do is put our players in the best position to win.For Kiffin, that means replacing quarterback Jake Coker and Heisman Trophy-winning tailback Derrick Henry, along with No. 2 rusher Kenyan Drake. Plus, center Ryan Kelly waas a first-round NFL draft pick. Dodgers Jerseys 2020. The quarterback competition includes Cooper Bateman, Blake Barnett, David Cornwell and freshman Jalen Hurts.Coker started every game but one, but Saban has said he really won over the team in the game he didnt start. He replaced Bateman in the loss to Mississippi.Were actually in that same area where there was four a year ago and now it turns out theres four again, Kiffin said. We would always like to be to one -- thats the best thing. But we dont want to eliminate anyone because this has been a very strange quarterback competition over two years. You guys watching scrimmages or games, even ourselves as staff, if you took a poll at times two or three weeks before the openers the last two years it would be mixed on who was going to be the starter.He said making sure coaches pick the right quarterback is more important than making a decision based on any timetable. Two years ago, Blake Sims outdueled Coker, who also played in the early games.I think if we would have had a timetable we may not have found the right guy in the last two years, Kiffin said.Pruitt has more experienced candidates in replacing four defenders who were second-round picks.Players like Ryan Anderson (six sacks), Rashaan Evans (four sacks) and Williams (10.5 sacks) came off the bench last season.Anderson said Pruitts hiring to replace Kirby Smart, now Georgias head coach, influenced his decision not to enter the NFL draft.That played a big part in me coming back, Anderson said. Hes just a players coach. He isnt a coach that always does all that yelling and stuff. He will talk to you. He will coach you. He isnt just going to yell at you, dog cuss you. Hes going to coach you.

PROVO, Utah -- The criticisms of Taysom Hill ran deep in 2016 as the dual-threat quarterback just hasnt quite looked like the same dynamic player that was a Heisman candidate 2013. Chad Pinder Jersey . Season-ending injuries in 2014 and 2015 seemed to take their toll.Mississippi State may think differently after Hill threw for three touchdowns, including the game-winner in double-overtime to give BYU a 28-21 win over the Bulldogs on Friday night.Thats the mentality of our team, well do whatever it takes, said Hill, with a large bruise on his biceps and a bloodied hand. I think we showcased that tonight. There were definitely times where it would have been easy for us to get down offensively and we didnt. We were resilient and we kept fighting and we got the win in overtime.Fans stormed the field as MSU quarterback Nick Fitzgerald threw an incomplete pass in the end zone on fourth down to end the game. It was the first time Hill has thrown for three touchdowns since the 2014 season opener.The BYU (4-3) offense couldnt get much going most of the night, but Hill hit Moroni Laulu-Pututau for a 15-yard touchdown on third-and-goal with 13:15 left in the game to tie things at 14-14.Fitzgerald struck first in overtime with a 2-yard touchdown run, but Hill answered with a quarterback sneak of his own to send it into double overtime. He then threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Tanner Balderree on the first snap of double overtime.Hill finished with 165 passing yards, 53 rushing yards and four total touchdowns. Running back Jamaal Williams ran for 76 yards and set the school career rushing record at 3,468.These guys will play till the clock says zero and it said zero, BYU coach Kalani Sitake said. So, they played extra downs. Just really pleased with the resiliency of our players.Mississippi State (2-4) led 14-7 at halftime thanks to a defense that held BYU to 126 first half yards, including just 45 through the air.The Bulldogs scored first with a 44-yard touchdown pass from Fitzgerald to Keith Mixon on a run-pass option to the left. Fitzgerald punched it in on a 1-yard rush later for the 14-7 lead.Fitzgerald threw for 214 yards and one touchdown and two interceptions. He also ran for 41 yards and two touchdowns.I think we played more than a complete game tonight, Fitzgerald said. Thats something I dont think weve done until now, so that was something good to see. We just couldnt chug it out at the end.THE TAKEAWAYMississippi State: The disastrous season continues for the Bulldogs. Mississippi State is now two games under .500, including losses to South Alabama, Auburn and BYU. The defense held up until overtime, but Fitzgerald threw two bad interceptions. The second came in the fourth quarter in field goal range.BYU: The Cougars are riding high after three consecutive victories, including one over a Big Ten program and now one against the SEC, the first time theyve ever beaten a SEC team at home. Hill looked like an improved passer and the defense kept the opponent to 21 or fewer points for the fifth time this season.RECORD HOLDERSeveral rows of students held up a giant sheet-like banner with a picture of Williams after he broke the record while the rest of the student section broke out placards with his No. 21 on it.Happy-happy, not happy-sad, Williams said about getting the record and the win. Im grateful to get it. Give credit to everybody blocking for me my whole career. I wish I could put Jamaal Williams and everybody else, put them before my name.I feel like Im on Taysom (Hill) level now. ... It hit a warm spot in my heart to see the numbers up and the banner.QUOTABLEWe didnt win, Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said. Theres no positives.UP NEXTMississippi State: The Bulldogs travel to face Kentucky in SEC action October 22.BYU: The Cougars travel to face No. 15 Boise State on October 20.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- After opening the season with a pair of tight victories, Maryland really needed a stress-free matchup against an inferior opponent.That is precisely what the Terrapins got.Damonte Dodd had 13 points and 10 rebounds, L.G. Gill scored 15 and Maryland cruised past St. Marys 93-45 on Thursday night.Its nice to have something like this, coach Mark Turgeon said after the Terps (3-0) overwhelmed their in-state Division III opponent.The blowout came after the Terrapins squeezed past American and won an emotional thriller on Tuesday at Georgetown.We didnt put any prep into it. Thats really the grind of the season, Turgeon said. We put so much into American and Georgetown, it was nice just to show up and play a game.Turgeon started three freshmen, along with Dodd and junior guard Melo Trimble. Two of those first-year players, Anthony Cowan and Justin Jackson, combined for 10 of Marylands first 11 points.Ten different players scored in the first half for the Terrapins, who led 13-2, 21-3 and 26-6 before an 18-4 run made it 44-10.The 6-foot-11 Dodd is three inches taller than anyone on the St. Marys roster. He dominated the lane on both ends and had three blocked shots.It feels good, Dodd said. It was fun to be out there. They tried their hardest. They had some really good players. But it was nice to have a blowout and get our rhythm on defense and offense. This really helps us a lot going into the next game.Trimble, the star of the team, contributed seven points in 15 minutes. Freshman Kevin Huerter and Jaylen Brantley each scored 11.Tre Mouton scored 16 for the Seahawks (1-1), a member of the Capital Athletic Conference. St. Marys was coming off a 95-66 win over Penn State Altoona, but this obviously represented a huge leap in the level of competition.I told the guys to be proud of the effort you put out there, coach Chris Harney said. Grant Holmes Jersey. You never know how bad it could have been. We could have been walking out of here (having lost) 150-10. Clearly, it was two different teams as far as size and skill.The Seahawks opened by going 1 for 7 from the floor with seven turnovers and did not make successive baskets until midway through the second half.This marked the fourth time in 12 years under Harney that the Seahawks faced a team higher than Division III. Theyre 0-4 in those games.YOUTH IS SERVEDSt. Marys: Because the Seahawks are in rebuilding mode, Harney was particularly pleased with his teams performance. We dont have any seniors, we have a pretty young team. This for us was really preparation for our season in Division III.Maryland: The freshmen shined -- Jackson had 10 rebounds, Cowan finished with eight points and seven assists, and Huerter led the team with five field goals. But Turgeon was most impressed with sophomore center Ivan Bender, who had seven rebounds and six points in 18 minutes. Hes the most improved player on our roster, the coach said.THE TAKEAWAYSt. Marys: The Seahawks took a beating, but at least they got to play in a major college arena before resuming a schedule that includes road games against Wesley and Christopher Newport.Maryland: The Terrapins received a modest workout in a game situation. The low-pressure scenario enabled Turgeon to shuffle his freshmen and work on plays that will be useful in the future.UP NEXTSt. Marys faces Baldwin Wallace on Saturday in the Dan Greene Memorial Invitational.Maryland hosts another in-state foe, Towson, on Sunday afternoon.

TORONTO -- By winning the AL Championship Series in five games, the Cleveland Indians not only captured a spot in the World Series, they also earned a break this team could sorely use. Vapormax Outlet Italia .Injuries to starters Carlos Carrasco, Danny Salazar and Trevor Bauer left Cleveland in a tough spot even as the Indians kept winning. They started Corey Kluber on short rest in Game 4 of the ALCS against Toronto, then sent a virtual unknown to the mound for Game 5 in Ryan Merritt. Cleveland won Game 5 and the series behind a solid effort from Merritt, but the Indians would love for Bauer and perhaps even Salazar to be able to contribute at some point soon.If not, well, Cleveland can still rely on a bullpen thats been up to the task so far. ALCS MVP Andrew Miller has received much of the attention, but the Indians go deeper than that. Their relievers have posted a 1.67 ERA in 32 1/3 innings this postseason, with Cody Allen and Bryan Shaw also making important contributions.The World Series starts Tuesday, and Cleveland is four wins from its first title since 1948. If the Indians pull it off, they could join an impressive list of teams who have won championships thanks to terrific relief pitching.Here are a few more examples:OAKLAND ATHLETICS (1972)Long before the concept of the one-inning closer took hold, bullpens were run much differently. Rollie Fingers was Oaklands star reliever during this era. In 1972, he went 11-9 with 21 saves in 65 appearances, pitching 111 1/3 innings, and Joe Horlen, Bob Locker and Darold Knowles also contributed out of the bullpen. The As beat Cincinnati to win the World Series in seven games, with Fingers appearing in six of them and posting a 1.74 ERA.OAKLAND ATHLETICS (1989)Tony La Russas 1989 champions were led by Dennis Eckersley (33 saves, 1.56 ERA) and got solid work from Todd Burns, Rick Honeycutt and Gene Nelson. The As won it all in 89, but Kirk Gibsons homer off Eckersley cost them the previous year, and in 1990, Oakland was denied by another incredible bullpen...CINCINNATI REDS (1990)Randy Myers, Norm Charlton and Rob Dibble -- dubbed the Nasty Boys -- formed a dominant late-inning trio for Lou Piniellas Reds. Dibbles numbers were particularly outstanding: 136 strikeouts in 98 innings and a 1.74 ERA. Cincinnati swept the As in the World Series.NEW YORK YANKEES (1996)Before he became one of the games greatest closers, Mariano Rivera was a setup man in 1996, throwing 107 2/3 innings and finishing third in the Cy Young vote. Closer John Wetteland earned World Series MVP honors, and Jeff Nelson was also a factor in that six-game victory over Atlanta.ANAHEIM ANGELS (2002)Francisco Rodriguezs debut year consisted of 5 2/3 innings in the regular season, then the Angels turned him loose in the postseason to devastating effect. He struck out 28 in 18 2/3 innings during Anaheims march to the title, teaming up with relievers Brendan Donnelly and Troy Percival to form a championship-level bullpen.BOSTON RED SOX (2013)Closer Koji Uehara capped an amazing season by allowing one run in 13 2/3 postseason innings. He was the ALCS MVP and had help all the way through from Junichi Tazawa and Craig Breslow.KANSAS CITY ROYALS (2015)After reaching Game 7 of the World Series the previous year behind the relief trio of Greg Holland, Wade Davis and Kelvin Herrera, the Royals won the title in 2015. Holland was unavailable for that postseason because of an injury, but Davis and Herrera were up to the challenge, combining to allow one earned run in 24 1/3 innings.---Information from baseball-reference.com was used in this report.

MEXICO CITY, Mexico -- Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene said Sebastian Vettels penalty at the Mexican Grand Prix was too harsh and somehow unfair. Kirby Puckett Twins Jersey .Vettel was stripped of a podium in Mexico after the stewards deemed his defence of position against Daniel Ricciardo to be dangerous. Vettel and Ricciardo were fighting over fourth position on the entry to Turn 4 when the Ferrari squeezed the Red Bull to the inside.Video footage and telemetry data proved that Vettel made his defensive move once both drivers were on the brakes, which is in breach of a new rule introduced at the U.S. Grand Prix. Ferrari was not able to appeal the decision, but Arrivabene made his thoughts clear in the teams post-race press conference.Today could have felt special, he said. We fully deserved this podium, which was taken away by bureaucracy. The whole team had showed great stamina by staying united and focused in a difficult moment.Our strategy had made it possible to make good progress through the race and both drivers did a very good job. Unfortunately, we were penalized by Stewards unappealable decision which, in my opinion, is too harsh and somehow unfair.Vettel felt hard done by three laps earlier when Max Verstappen had defended position by skipping Turn 2. Vettel felt Verstappen should have given the position up, but instead the 19-year-old backed the Ferrari driver into Ricciardo, triggering the Turn 4 incident.We were quicker, so we put Verstappen under pressure: for sure it was not easy to pass, but he did a mistake, cut the track and didnt give the position back even if he was told to do so, Vettel said. About the fight with Daniel: I respect him a lot, it is never ideal when you touch. On my defense, I was fighting hard, and trying to give him some space, which I think I did. Kohl Stewart Jersey . The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season. The patch, shaped like home plate, carries the number 715, Aarons autograph and a "40th Anniversary" banner. Jason Castro Twins Jersey . -- Edmontons Val Sweeting is two wins away from a trip to Winnipeg to play in Canadas Road of the Rings in December. https://www.cheaptwins.com/742t-jonathan-schoop-jersey-twins.html . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week.Richard Whiting has brought his 12-year spell at Hull to an end by turning his loan deal with Championship leaders Leigh into a permanent move. The 31-year-old centre or second-rower scored 78 tries in 257 games for Hull after joining them from Featherstone in 2004 and was a member of their 2005 Challenge Cup-winning side. Unable to break into Lee Radfords team this year, he joined the Centurions two months ago and will now stay on loan at the Leigh Sports Village until the end of the season, when he will take up a contract until the end of 2017.Leigh coach Neil Jukes said: Richard is a great professional and has proved himself to be a big asset during his time with us.He is a very versatile player and has really enjoyed his time here. I know that in one way he will be sad to leave Hull after giving many years of valuable service to them but he is excited by the challenge at Leigh Centurions and ready to write a new chapter into his illustrious playing career.Whiting was named Super Leagues young player of the year in 2005 and scored a try in Hulls shock Challenge Cup final win over Leeds. He was also in the Hull team that reached the 2006 Super League Grand Final.Whiting said: I knew at some point it would be time to say goodbye.The opportunity has presented itself at Leigh where I am really enjjoying playing and it is an exciting time to be around the club so it is the right time for me and the club. Trevor May Jersey. We have a great squad at Leigh and a chance to go up into Super League, which is exciting and something I want to be part of. Whiting joined Leigh on loan earlier this year Hull coach Lee Radford said: Rich has been a fantastic servant to the club since day one and his utility value has been important over the many years he has played for us.Hes done the same job in whichever position hes been asked to play, both in the build-up to matches and switching during games.We are at a point where we couldnt guarantee Rich regular footy and he is at the stage in his career where that is important, he needs to be playing week in-week out.Leigh have presented him with the opportunity to have that both this season and beyond, so the call was a no-brainer for him.

The sunglasses company dropped by Sergio Perez for making a joke about U. Nike Air Max 97 Femme Pas Cher .S. president-elect Donald Trump and Mexico has set up a childrens charity in a bid to make amends.The Hawkers brand was dropped by the Force India driver after it made an off-colour joke about Mexicans using their glasses to hide their crying eyes as they built a wall on the U.S. border, a reference to one of Trumps controversial election pledges. Perez, one of two Mexican drivers on the Formula One grid, immediately tweeted that he was ending his short-lived affiliation with the company.Hawkers, which had been in the process of making 20,000 limited edition Perez sunglasses, has taken out a full-page advert in the El Universal newspaper and pledging $25,000 (USD) to a new charity, Dear Sergio x Hawkers Foundation, for poor children.Dear Sergio, sometimes we have accidents, the advert said. You, more than anybody else, knows this. Although we dont expect this accident to be forgotten, we will do everything possible to make sure that it doesnt happen again.We will continue to be with you, with the people of Mexico and with all those who oppose discrimination and racism in the world.The advert also blamed a community manger for the Trump gaffe.? Nike Vapormax Destockage . It was the kind of score that might make everyone else wonder which course he was playing. Except that Graeme McDowell saw the whole thing. Crouched behind the 10th green at Sheshan International, McDowell looked over at the powerful American and said, "Ive probably seen 18 of the best drives Ive seen all year in the last two days. Nike Air Vapormax Soldes . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. http://www.maxnikepascher.fr/destockage-air-max-720/max-720-homme.html . Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter. Our experts weigh in on four of the biggest questions in NASCAR.Turn 1: Do you think Kyle Larson will remain at Chip Ganassi Racing long term?Ricky Craven, ESPN NASCAR analyst:?Yes, I believe the relationship is cemented, in large part because Chip understands and appreciates the asset he has in Larson. This is a talent a good organization can take from good to great. Recruiting people, talent, and sponsorship -- it all just became a little less difficult for Chip Ganassi.John Oreovicz, ESPN.com: That depends on how much they win together in the short- to mid-term. If Ganassi demonstrates that his team is indeed a platform for long-term Cup Series success, Larson will likely stay. But if the wins continue to come on a 1-for-99 pace, Larson has shown enough talent to land a ride with one of the sports top teams -- thats if an open seat exists when he is a free agent.Bob Pockrass, ESPN.com: Yes with an if -- that being if sponsorship continues. Target already has pulled out of Ganassis IndyCar program. If it pulls out of NASCAR and Ganassi either cant get sponsorship to pay Larson or run well, that would be a reason to leave.Ryan McGee, ESPN.com: No, but I hope so. I think he has the kind of talent to boost them to a level and keep them there. But its not a big secret that he has had a bit of a greener grass syndrome when it comes to looking around the garage at the juggernauts, especially as its pertained to where his team has ranked on the Chevy totem pole.Turn 2: Which throwback scheme that has been announced for Darlington are you looking forward to the most?Pockrass: The No. 43 Petty car. Right number. Right colors. Authentic.Craven: A close second to No. 43 is the 88 paying tribute to Buddy Baker and the Grey Ghost.Oreovicz: Only in its second year, I love the momentum that the throwback-themed Darlington weekend is building, and I hope to experience it in person soon. I like the Coca-Cola scheme that Tony Stewart is running, and the Matt Kenseth Tide Ride will be easy to spot from the stands or on TV.McGee: Honestly, the coolest schemes might be in Saturday nights XFinity Series race. Folgers, Jimmy Means, Marty Robbins, the DW Dew Crew car, the Black Widow, A.J. Foyt, Davey Allisons Texaco-Havloine and his daddys red, white and blue Matador. But the best has to be that Derrike Cope 1990 Daytona 500 throwback -- driven by Derrike Cope!Turn 3: Alex Bowman doesnt have the results that show how well he has done in his two chances driving the No. 88 car. Should he be in the car this weekend at Darlington instead of Jeff Gordon?Craven:?Jeff Gordon should be in the car this weekend. In fact, I have him challenging for a top five. He fits Darlington to perfection. Alex Bowman is a driver I have strong belief in, but the track too tough to tame will be much kinder to Gordon.Oreovicz:?Yes. At this stage, there is nothing to be gained from Gordon being in the car -- nothing promotional- or publicity-wise, nothing from a car development standpoint. Theres probbably a drop-dead date coming soon when it will be determined whether Dale Earnhardt Jr. Air Max 270 Homme Soldes. comes back this year at all. Gordon is not a long-term solution, so assuming that Junior takes the rest of the year off, the sooner Rick Hendrick makes a decision about the rest of the 2016, the easier it will be for everyone. And Bowman is probably the best option.Pockrass: Yes. Gordon has done his job and will be able to give feedback to the team about how the cars perform. Bowman brings an enthusiasm and he has gotten a raw deal the last two races. Dale Earnhardt Jr. says he believes in Bowman. Why not give him another chance?McGee: OK, all along Ive been screaming that Bowman should have been in the car instead of Gordon. And I still believe that. History says these comebacks, even temporary, dont end well for the guy making the comeback. But if youre running a race car at Darlington and Jeff Gordon is available, then thats what you do. Then give it to Bowman the rest of the season until Earnhardt returns.Turn 4: Should the Southern 500 be run on a Monday in the future?Craven:?Its hard to argue that anything is missing from the Darlington throwback creation, but a Labor Day race beginning at noon would complete the authentication, if only for nostalgia purposes. Sunday evening is a much more comfortable proposition, and it gives fans all day to hang, cook out, hydrate (wink, wink) and raise a little hell. Whats not to love about this race? Its the closest most of us will ever come to experiencing NASCAR at Darlington in the 1970s.Oreovicz: I think its worth a shot. It would help the track and public relations director Kerry Tharp build on the retro theme that has been so popular over the last couple of years. Plus, back in the day, TV didnt dictate the Sunday at 3:50 p.m. start times. Why not cater to the fans actually attending? I think a lot of traditional NASCAR fans would relish the novelty of doing things the way they might have done it back in the day, with a high noon Monday start for the Southern 500. Theyre going to be recording it back home on the DVR anyway, and isnt somebody outside of Nielsen collecting that data?Pockrass: Only if Tuesday is a guaranteed day off work for fans who attend. The best part of this being a Sunday night race is people have Monday to travel -- or see a race if it rains.McGee: Sure. If we really want to go full throwback, then why not go back to the day that they used to run it? They ran that race on Labor Day itself most years from 1950 until 1984, pushed there by South Carolinas blue laws. If you really want the full old-school Southern 500 experience, then you have to run it at noon when it is so hot that your shoes melt into the asphalt. Thankfully, fears of rain delays and TV wanting Sunday programming changed that. Because Ive had my shoes melted into the asphalt. Its overrated. ' ' '

EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Dallas Stars finally have some positive momentum going. Adidas NHL Jerseys 2020 .Patrick Eaves had a goal and an assist and Kari Lehtonen made 40 saves as the Stars won for the second time in two nights, beating the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Friday.Lauri Korpikoski and Antoine Roussel also scored for the Stars, who had lost six of seven before turning things around with a win at Calgary on Thursday night.I havent played back-to-backs in a long time, so that was a nice challenge and it was fun to get lots of action too, it kept me in the game easily the whole time, Lehtonen said.Dallas forward Tyler Seguin, who picked up two assists, said the Stars really clamped down defensively.Were finding ways to defend, Seguin said. With the guys out of the lineup, thats a lot of speed and a lot of goal scoring. Our main focus and discussions have been how were going to defend. I thought our goalie did a great job tonight and our D made some great plays and some smart plays and our forwards track back hard. It was good things the last two nights, were going to put it away and keep it going.Patrick Maroon and Tyler Pitlick scored for Edmonton, which has lost two straight to fall to 2-4-1 since starting the season 7-1-0. Cam Talbot stopped 27 shots.Were always playing from behind, Oilers captain Connor McDavid said. Were putting ourselves behind the 8-ball and we have to figure out a way to have better starts.They did a good job at trapping up the middle and not allowing us to get speed. Ultimately, weve got to find a way to win a game like that. Its just not good enough coming close.Roussel got the tiebreaking goal with 5 minutes left in the second period, taking a partial breakaway pass from Seguin and beating Talbot.Edmonton had some solid chances in the dying minutes, but Lehtonen preserved the win.Dallas got off to a fast start, scoring on the first shot of the game, just 28 seconds in. Jamie Benn fed it into the slot to Korpikoski, who blasted a shot past Talbot.Jordan Eberle put the Oilers back on the offense just three minutes later, fishing a puck out of a scramble in front of the net and putting a shot on Lehtonen, with Maroon sweeping in to score his sixth of the season.Eaves scored on a long point shot to make it 2-1 for Dallas five minutes into the first period.Edmonton tied the game up again with 29 seconds left to play in the opening period as Pitlick got the puck behind the net and swooped out front before calmly lifting a backhand past Lehtonen.Game notes The Stars have been forced to get by without six of their top forwards, with Cody Eakin, Patrick Sharp, Ales Hemsky, Jiri Hudler, Jason Spezza and Mattias Janmark all absent from the lineup. ... Coming into the game, the Stars had gone 17-3-4 against the Oilers over the past seven seasons. ... It was the first of three meetings between the two teams this season, the next one is at Dallas on Nov. 19.UP NEXTStars: At Vancouver on Sunday in the finale of a five-game trip.Oilers: Host the New York Rangers on Sunday. Authentic MLB Jerseys . -- Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft. Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos. https://www.cheapmlbjerseysjustwholesale.com/ . NBA officials ruled the court unplayable in the Bucks final exhibition game on Oct. 25 because players were slipping, and the game was cancelled midway through the first period. SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- Dustin Johnson apparently had high expectations after winning his first major at the U.S. Open.He didnt win the next major at Royal Troon and got rid of his beard.I finished ninth at the British, so I shaved it, Johnson said Wednesday, the big smile indicating he went with a clean look for no specific reason.Hed like to leave the PGA Championship with a new ranking -- No. 1.While his back-to-back victories at the U.S. Open and the World Golf Championship at Firestone rightly get most of the attention, its easy to overlook that he has been playing better than anyone all year.He has finished out of the top 10 only five times in his 16 starts this year, including his last six tournaments. With a tie for second last week at the Canadian Open, the 32-year-old Johnson arrived at Baltusrol with a mathematical chance to replace Jason Day at No. 1 in the world.Johnson would have to win the PGA Championship and have Day finish third or worse, or he could be the sole runner-up and reach No. 1 if Day were to finish 28th. However you do the math, its a possibility.And typical of Johnson, he wont give it much of a thought.It wont be on my mind, he said. Im going to go out and try to focus on what Ive got to do. The rest of the stuff, I try not to worry about -- or actually I dont worry about. I just go out and play golf and try to shoot the best score I can. At the end of the week, if Im on top of the leaderboard and I get to No. 1, obviously that would be great and be a big accomplishment.He was the betting favorite going into the final major of the year, mainly because of his consistently great play, and because Baltusrol is a big golf course at 7,462 yards for a par 70. And thats right up his power alley.As for the majors, Johnson is starting to set himself apart.Dating to a missed cut in the 20144 Masters, he has seven top 10s in his last nine majors, including his U. Nike MLB Jerseys. S. Open title at Oakmont.I feel like it keeps me mentally in it longer, Johnson said of the majors. When Im on really tough golf courses, I feel like Im more focused because Im really trying to hit the ball to a certain spot, instead of a lot of times when I struggle sometimes its just staying mentally focused on every shot.What sets the Lower Course at Baltusrol apart for the PGA Championship is that the A.W. Tillinghast design doesnt have a par 5 until the 17th hole, and then it ends with a pair of par 5s. That would seem to be disadvantage for Johnson, whose length can lead to easy birdies on par 5s.Or maybe not.This golf course, I hit a lot of drivers, he said. Its par 70, but its quite long. I feel like I wear out my 8- and 9-irons on the par 4s.Long course. And 8-irons and 9-irons into the par 4s.Thats his game.One of the par 5s might not be reachable, anyway. The 649-yard 17th hole is the second-longest in PGA Championship history behind the 653-yard fifth hole at Southern Hills. John Daly was the first player to hit the green in two, using a 1-iron in the 1993 U.S. Open.But with nearly two inches of rain on Monday night, and more storms in the forecast, the course is too soft to have a reasonable chance, even for Johnson. He hammered a drive during his first practice round and still had 320 yards to the hole.Then again, his wedge play has been the reason he has risen to the elite in golf, why he is one big win away from reaching the top. And finally getting his first major did little to make him satisfied.I want to win every major, he said. Maybe even more of a desire to get a second one. ' ' '
