NEW YORK -- The captain is ready to test his twice broken ankle. . Derek Jeter will start a rehabilitation assignment Saturday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the first step toward returning to the New York Yankees. He is scheduled to play at least five innings at shortstop. Whether he will be able to don his pinstripes before the All-Star break is to be seen. "I think he has to feel comfortable playing," manager Joe Girardi said Friday. "He really hasnt had a whole lot of at-bats. He has not played a whole lot of infield. So (we need to see him) being able to go back-to-back days, back-to-back-to-back days that sort of thing." Jeter joins third baseman Alex Rodriguez in the minor leagues. Jeter is starting with the Yankees top minor league club because he appears to be further along than A-Rod, who has played two games for Class A Charleston and is is hitless in his first four at-bats. Rodriguezs game Friday with the Tampa Yankees, a high-A club, was postponed by rain. He has said he thinks he will need the full 20 days allowed for a rehab assignment to prepare to play after having left hip surgery in January. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman would not commit to seeing either player back before the break that begins July 15. "Those guys will be ready when theyre ready," Cashman said. "Thats it." Jeter broke his ankle in the opener of the AL championship series on Oct. 13 and had surgery soon after. The player who rarely concedes hes injured vowed to return for opening day but he only played five spring training games because of soreness in the foot. A new break was discovered on April 18. On Friday at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla., Jeter took six simulated at-bats against minor league pitchers and ran the bases after putting the ball in play. He also did one of his signature jump throws to first after fielding a grounder in the hole during defensive drills. Five players have started at shortstop in Jeters absence, and Robinson Cano is looking forward to some stability there with the return of the 13-time All-Star. "We all know what kind of guy he is and what energy he brings to the team," Cano said. "Not only that -- also young players to myself the way he gives good advice, and everybody just looks to him. Thats all we want. We want our guy here and hes our shortstop." The Yankees infielder who might be closest to a return is Eduardo Nunez. He started 26 games at shortstop before going out with a left oblique strain June 6. Nunez played for Double-A Trenton on Thursday and was 0 for 5. In five rehab games, he is 3 for 13 with two runs and two stolen bases. "Hes played this year and hes has spring training," Girardi said, comparing Nunez to Jeter and Rodriguez. Also, Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda said his hip flexor feels OK and that he was cleared to throw a bullpen session Friday. . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. . But when it comes to determining if Raymond will find a place on the Leafs roster when training camp concludes in a week, well, that decision will ultimately fall to the head coach. North Dakota State coach Chris Klieman says All-America middle linebacker Nick DeLuca will not practice this week after he suffered a separated shoulder in the top-ranked Bisons season-opening game.The Bison, who have won the past five FCS national titles, are in a bye week before returning to action Sept. 10 when they host Eastern Washington.Speaking at his weekly news conference Monday, Klieman said DeLucas status will be re-evaluated next week.The 6-foot-3, 245-pound DeLuca, a senior nominated for STATS FCS Defensive Player of the Yeear, was injured early in the third quarter of North Dakota States 24-17 overtime win over Charleston Southern in the FCS Kickoff on Saturday night. He was replaced by junior linebacker Matt Plank, who finished the game with six tackles.DeLuca, the only FCS player up for the Butkus Award, which honors the nations best linebackers, started all 15 games last season and led the team with 135 tackles.

The?Miami Hurricanes?football team has dismissed freshman wide receiver Sam Bruce, one of its top 2016 signees, for multiple violations of team rules. Austin Rivers Jersey .Freshman wide receiver Sam Bruce has been dismissed from the Miami football program based on multiple violations of team rules and a failure on his part to meet the clear expectations established to be a part of the Miami football program, Miami said in a statement. We wish Sam well with his future academic and football endeavors.Bruce rated as the second-highest recruit in the Hurricanes 2016 class. He was ranked No. 77 in the ESPN 300.Bruce had yet to appear in a game for the Hurricanes after serving a three-game suspension to start the year and suffering a non-football injury to what the school described as a lower extremity. His first suspension was for a violation of team rules. DeAndre Jordan Jersey . The injury bothered Bledsoe in the Suns victory over the Clippers on Monday and he sat out the teams home loss to Memphis on Thursday night. Sam Dekker Jersey . Q: Team Canada announces their Olympic roster three weeks from today. Who is general manager Steve Yzerman watching? LeBrun: Over the last 48 hours, hes taken in the home-and-home between the Dallas Stars and Colorado Avalanche with Jamie Benn and Matt Duchene being the obvious targets. . The recently retired Stern was elected Friday to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and will be enshrined with the class of 2014 on Aug. NEW YORK -- Wade Miley hears the talk about lifting the bottom of the strike zone in an effort to spark offense and insists there has been too much tinkering already.I dont know why they just cant leave the game alone, the Seattle pitcher said. Cant we just go play and try to get three outs and go from there?Concerned about the drop in offense in recent years, Major League Baseball has studied whether to restore the lower edge of the strike zone from just beneath the kneecap to its pre-1996 level -- at the top of the kneecap. Any change for 2017 would require an agreement with the players association, which is skeptical. Membership is split.I think its kind of outrageous what theyre trying to do with the strike zone, Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Alex Wood said. Obviously, Im biased. Im a pitcher. But at the same time, its shrunk drastically, maybe even in the last five or six years.Baseball people talk about the strike zone the way most discuss the weather: constant complaints about hard-to-fathom change.Wood threw 11.9 percent of his pitches last year at the bottom of the strike zone, according to Fangraphs, which defined the lowest portion as between 1.5 and 1.75 feet off the ground. That was the highest-percentage in the major leagues, just ahead of Minnesotas Kyle Gibson at 11.3 percent and Mileys 11 percent.When the strike zone was last changed, umpires took years to adjust.MLB has used computer software to track umpires strike zones since 2001, which has helped bring the umpiring staff into closer alignment on balls and strikes. Umpires receive a grade now after every game worked behind the plate, and that has resulted in an expansion of the strike zone over much of the past decade.Any adjustment to a new rule-book definition would take time.Theyd have to start in the minor leagues. I think for some of the guys to try to adjust to a new strike zone is going to be chaotic, said umpire Bob Davidson, who worked his first big league game in 1982. I hope they just leave it the way it is. I think we call it now the way the rule book states.Offense has increased this season. Through Thursdays games, the big league batting average is .256, the highest for a first half since 2010, and teams have combined for 2.31 homers per game, the most in the first half since the Steroids Era peak in 20000. Blake Griffin Jersey. But one trend remains constant: strikeouts.Teams combined to average 15.95 strikeouts per game in June, the third-highest month in major league history behind September 2015 (15.96) and April 2016 (16.26), according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The last 28 months dating to September 2011 are the highest-strikeout 28 months in big league history.Were at an interesting time in the game, Gibson said. I think they should ask players about strikeouts and how much they care about strikeouts because I dont think its as frowned-upon as it used to be -- because a guy whos striking out a lot is probably also hitting a lot of homers. And if you ask anybody in here if theyll take a 150-strikeout and 30-homer year, theyre going to say, yeah, sign me up.The strike zone has changed many times -- by definition, not just opinion, like Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon calling Laz Diazs zone last weekend amorphic. The top was moved from the armpits to the top of the shoulders ahead of the 1963 season, then lowered before 1969 following a drop in offense and redefined in 1988 as the midpoint between the top of the shoulders and the top of the uniform pants.If the bottom came up, would the top come up, too? said Toronto pitcher R.A. Dickey, the 2012 NL Cy Young Award winner. If they want to introduce an era of better offense, then that would be one way to go, for sure. Because if youre having to elevate balls, thats right into the swing path of most hitters.But just raising the bottom alone likely would result in only a slight change.I think thats a tough pitch for umpires to call already. Not only are they blocked a little bit by the catcher, but the pitches that I throw down there arent straight four-seamers. Theyre sinking down already, Gibson said. I think most of those probably arent called strikes. Theyre probably groundballs or swings and misses or foul balls. ... But, yeah, raising the strike zone for me is going to be a little more difficult, depending on how they call that. But its just like any other rule change. Just like the slide rule at second. Im going to have to make an adjustment and hopefully its not an adjustment that causes me to get hit a whole lot.

DENVER -- The game between the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night ?was delayed because of a power surge at the Pepsi Center. .Denver led 90-85 with 9:18 remaining in the fourth quarter when a bank of lights near the ceiling went dark. The teams stayed on the court and shot jumpers until the game was restarted. . In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford. . Clarke was injured while practicing on the Doha Golf Club range after the pro-am on Tuesday. The Northern Irishman arrived at the course on Wednesday hoping to start, but after hitting a few balls on the practice putting green Clarke advised officials he was not fit to play. . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. The hat-trick Bruce Reid, Anthony Stuart, Brett Lee, Daniel Christian, Clint McKay, James Faulkner. That is the list of Australians to have taken an ODI hat-trick, six names in total after Faulkner joined the group in this match. And he did so across two overs, his wickets coming from the last ball of the 46th over and the first two deliveries of the 48th over. First was Kusal Perera, who was lbw trying to reverse-sweep a cutter. Then it was Angelo Mathews, who drilled one down the ground and was caught just inside the boundary by Moises Henriques. And finally Thisara Perera was bowled while backing away and trying to cut. Three ODI hat-tricks were taken last year, but this was the first for 2016.The sitter It was the sittingest sitter that ever sat. In the 42nd over of Sri Lankas innings, Kusal Perera got a top edge off Moises Henriques that lobbed up and straight down into the hands of Adam Zampa at short third man. And then down further, out of the hands of Adam Zampa at short third man and onto the ground. It was such an easy chance that it was genuinely baffling that Zampa had managed to drop it. Perhaps, having finished his own 10 overs and claimed 3 for 42 earlier, his concentration had waned. It was a costly enough miss - Perera was on 29 and went on to make 54. The long walk homeDinesh Chandimal is a batsman who puts store in personal milestones. He celebrates his own with abandon, and his team-mates with even more abandon. So when he was out on 48, going for a Sri Lankan record of six fifties in a row, his reaction was endearingly predictable. Chandimal dropped his shoulders. Chandimal dropped his head. Dragging his feet and the bat behind him, he trudged sullenly through the outfield, like a man who had been roughed up and robbed at the bus halt, and was left with no option but to begin walking home - a brass band playing a sombre tune in the background.The openerNathan Lyon did not play in the first ODI but was rapidly into the action in this second match. After Mitchell Starc delivered the first over of the game, Lyon sent down the second and immediately gained some noticeable turn. For some teams it is nothing out of the ordinary to open with a spinner in an ODI, but it is a rarity for Australia. In fact, only once before have Australia used the tactic in the first innings of an ODI - when Mark Waugh shared the new ball against South Africa at the SCG on Australia Day, 1998.

(STATS) -- Liberty has made no effort to hide its desire to join an FBS conference and play with the big boys, a stance that was reignited this week when school president Jerry Falwell Jr. Authentic Jordans For Cheap . said the Flames might make the leap in a matter of months.Beating one of the premier teams in the FCS should make them a bit more attractive to potential suitors.Theres a golden opportunity to land a signature win Saturday against No. 3 Jacksonville State, the Ohio Valley Conference power that made it to the national championship game last season and the highest-ranked team that will have ever visited Lynchburgs Williams Stadium.Ive heard so much about the environment at Liberty, Gamecocks coach John Grass said. I think its one of the best in FCS football.Falwell Jr. is hoping the 27-year-old stadium will soon be one of the better -- albeit tinier, at 19,200 -- environments in the FBS. He announced in 2012 that the Flames (1-2) were ready to jump to the FBS, and though some brief flirtation with the Sun Belt never materialized, there could soon be a new opportunity. The Big 12 is currently considering expansion candidates -- a vote is possible as early as an Oct. 17 board meeting -- and the domino effect could leave either the American Athletic Conference or Conference USA looking for a new member or two.Grass team is coming off a 27-26 win over Coastal Carolina, another former Big South member thats making the move to the FBS. Following this transition season, the Chanticleers are off to the Sun Belt.We just talked about Coastal Carolinas budget and moving up; well, Liberty has the same kind of budget and wanting to move up, they are just waiting on a conference to take them, Grass said. They have the biggest budget in FCS football and maybe some of the lower level Power 5 schools, so they have a lot going on with their university and in the right direction.All that speculation has little meaning to Turner Gills current team, which is 0-for-2 against FBS schools in September after recording FBS wins in each of the past two seasons. The Flames are simply concentrating on finding a way back to the FCS playoffs, which they missed out on last season after making their inaugural trip in 2014.Theres an automatic path in by winning the Big South, but a victory over Jacksonville State could give them a reasonable chance of an at-large berth should they stumble. After Saturday, the schedule isnt exactly challenging until two games in six days in mid-November against Charleston Southern and Coastal Carolina.Its been great focus all week, Gill said. Im not saying its been a whole lot of rah-rah stuff, but paying attention to detail and a lot of great communication from teammate to teammate. When I see that, that tells me theyre focused and ready to go.As of Friday morning, Gill was still silent in naming a starting quarterback. Neither of his options have played well thus far. Junior Stephon Masha has thrown six interceptions in just 60 pass attempts, giving him an interception percentage thats the second highest in all of Division I. And though hes completed only 51.7 percent of his throws, thats 1.7 percent better than freshman Stephen Calvert, who saw his most extensive action yet in last Saturdays 29-14 loss to SMU.The Flames will need whichever signal caller is taking snaps to succeed through the air, because theyll likely find space hard to come by on the ground. LSU had success rushing against Jacksonville State, but Coastal Carolina gained just 42 yards on 35 carries.Theres no uncertainty under center for the Gamecocks (2-1). Eli Jenkins paved the way to the title game last season and despite a dip in accuracy through three games, hes still the driving force in an offense thats cracked 500 total yards against both of its non-FBS opponents.(Jenkins), in my mind, is no question one of the top players in the country, Gill said.There are four wins over FCS top-10 foes on Gills resume since arriving at Liberty in 2012 -- the Flames knocked off both Montana and Coastal in Lynchburg last season -- but theres a reason Jacksonville State heads north as a 9 1/2-point favorite in this one. The Gamecocks have lost only three regular-season games since Grass took over in 2014 -- to Michigan State, Auburn and LSU. Cheap Jordan 1 Retro All Black . Bradwell was scheduled to become a free agent Tuesday. Born and raised in Toronto, Bradwell is entering his sixth CFL season, with all six played for his hometown Argonauts. Cheap Jordan 1 Retro Pink . After dropping their final six games of December, the Wild opened the new calendar year with four consecutive wins. Following a loss to Colorado on Saturday, Minnesota rebounded the following night to blank Nashville 4-0, but then had the tables turned on them Tuesday. . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. Montreal Alouettes QBs # Name Status Ht Wt D.O.B.

He has thrown 449 touchdowns, second in pro football only to Brett Favres 508. Thats a crazy number. He played las year with a non-throwing shoulder that needed surgery for most of the season and was one dropped touchdown pass from advancing to the Grey Cup for the ninth time. Anyhow, I bet Dan Hawkins is happy hes starting his CFL career with AC as his QB. I can guarantee that! New coach, new system, new contract, same old Anthony! Love it... The Als signing of Quinton Porter was a smart move as Adrian McPherson is/was no longer in the picture. I really like what I know and have seen from third year QB Josh Neiswander. Hes been doing things right, soaking in all he can from AC and Marc Trestman the last two years, and when the chance comes I expect him to shine and perform at a high level. Tanner Marsh is a big kid from Arkansas Tech whos fighting for a roster spot.

Hes serving a life sentence in the 2013 killing of Odin (OH-dihn) Lloyd, who was dating his fiancees sister.Jury selection for the Boston murder trial is set to begin Feb. 13. The judge scheduled a Dec. 20 hearing for arguments on pre-trial motions. Mario Hezonja Jersey .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. Discount Magic Jerseys . Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series. . But Bourque, who has missed three games with a lower-body injury, wont be in the lineup when the Habs travel to Buffalo to take on the Sabres on Wednesday. PITTSBURGH -- Dan Bylsma couldnt avoid speculation about his status as the Penguins coach in the days following Pittsburghs four-game pratfall against Boston in the Eastern Conference Finals, even in his own house. Shortly after the Bruins swept the Stanley Cup favourites out of the playoffs last week, Bylsmas son Bryan asked his dad if he still had a job. "I would be lying to say that I was able to block all that stuff out," Bylsma said. Now he wont have to. The Penguins signed the second-winningest coach in franchise history to a two-year extension through 2016 on Wednesday, a very public vote of confidence after Pittsburghs quest for a Stanley Cup to bookend the one it captured in 2009 ended with four miserable losses to the Bruins. "I have a very good coach moving forward that I want to lead this team," general manager Ray Shero said. "I want to reward him with an extension that shows him and shows people that hes my coach and I believe in him." Its a belief Shero stressed was not shaken despite a fourth straight spring without a Cup for one of the NHLs most talented teams. Assistants Tony Granato and Todd Reirden will also be retained after the Penguins decided it wasnt time to change course following a regular season in which the Penguins posted the second-best record in the league. Shero, who met with owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle earlier this week, was prepared to go to bat for Bylsma, who is 201-92-25 since taking over for Michel Therrien in February, 2009. Turns out, Shero didnt have to step up after Lemieux and Burkle told him they were fully on board with keeping Bylsma in the fold. "They were 100 per cent supportive," Shero said. Even if the Penguins are just 3-4 in post-season series since captain Sidney Crosby raised the Cup after beating Detroit in Game 7 of the 2009 finals. Pittsburgh has fallen to a lower-seeded team each time, though the fourth-seeded Bruins hardly qualified as a major underdog. Boston didnt play like one, never trailing as the Penguins were swept for the first time in 34 years. Most galling was a 6-1 defeat at home in Game 2 that changed the tenor of the series. Pittsburgh regrouped and played well in a double-overtime loss in Game 3 and a 1-0 loss in Game 4, pretty clear evidence Bylsma had not lost the dressing room. He certainly didnt lose Shero. "We did some very good things over the course of the season," Shero said. "We won the Atlantic Divisioon championship. D.J. Augustin Jersey. We won 15 straight games that put us in position to have home-ice (advantage)." Those accomplishments and Bylsmas solid relationship with stars Crosby and Evgeni Malkin proved more powerful than the sting of disappointment. Malkin is entering the final year of his contract and the Penguins are intent on keeping him. Having the coach who helped turn Malkin into the league MVP a year ago certainly wont hurt. Shero understands the lure of blowing things up. It happens frequently in Pittsburgh. Bylsmas 319-game run is the longest since the franchise was founded in 1967. Bringing in a new face didnt make sense to Shero, who pointed to the stability of franchises like the Detroit Red Wings as the key to being a consistent Cup contender. Besides, while the new deal brings a sense of momentary calm, it hardly assures a sense of long-term security. Therrien was fired halfway through the 2008-09 season even though he signed a three-year extension a few months earlier. Shero also cautioned the deal doesnt absolve Bylsma or the players of what happened against the Bruins. It also doesnt mean the window for this group has closed. "Weve been to the conference finals three times in the last six years," Shero said. "We want a Cup. We want to get back there." Bylsma in particular. He called the extension "important" and in some ways a relief. He traded texts with his brothers assuring them he was "OK" after the loss to the Bruins. Now he can head into the off-season trying to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. His first order will be finding a new goaltending coach. Longtime goaltending coach Gille Meloche will move into a scouting role and whoever inherits his position will have to find a way to restore the confidence of Marc-Andre Fleury. The former No. 1 pick imploded in the opening round against the New York Islanders and lost his job to Tomas Vokoun. Bylsma and Shero insist the 28-year-old Fleury remains a part of the teams future. "Does he understand situation hes in? I think he does," Bylsma said. "Going forward there is not repair work to do with Marc-Andre Fleury and the coach and our team. Hes a good goalie ... hes going to win the majority of the games for us." With Bylsma at the helm. "We want to put ourselves into situations to win the Stanley Cup every year," Bylsma said. "We felt weve done that with our team." Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2018 Wholesale Jerseys 2020 China Jerseys ' ' '

Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, enters the finale with a chance to equal Michael Schumachers 13 victories in a year and match the record of nine consecutive wins by Alberto Ascari in the 1952 and 1953 seasons. . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. TORONTO -- When the Toronto Raptors first gathered for training camp, Dwane Casey knew his players wanted to talk about more than basketball.Racial tension was simmering in the United States. Images of police brutality had gone viral. National anthem protests were spreading.The coach was moved by what his players said.Terrence Ross, who everyone thought was really quiet, had some very thoughtful and impactful statements and thoughts on the whole issue that you would never think, Casey said. I was really proud of the way our players had opinions and had thought them out, very respectful yet thought-provoking statements that they made.If athletes, with their legions of fans, are in a unique position to speak up, Casey is all for it.The 59-year-old coach was raised by his grandparents in Morganfield, Kentucky. The town was largely segregated until an effort at integration, when he was in fourth grade, forced him to ride a bus across town to school. He went on to become one of the first black players at the University of Kentucky.Ive lived it, I know it, I know how (the players) are feeling, what theyre going through, what theyre seeing, Casey told The Canadian Press after a recent practice. Ive told them, `Hey Ive been through segregation. Ive changed schools where Ive had to fight, and the National Guard was brought in. Ive used hand-me-down books in school. Ive seen police brutality. Ive seen the Ku Klux Klan riding through my town of Morganfield. Ive seen the segregated bathrooms.The Raptors played the first game of the NBAs preseason in Vancouver, British Columbia, and became the first team in the league to protest during the anthem. They stood with linked arms and have done so in every game since. They open the season at home Wednesday night against Detroit Pistons.Not everyone was a fan of the gesture.Some people got upset becausee they thought it was disrespecting the police, Casey said. Zach LaVine Jersey. But, believe me, its no disrespect to the police force. As a matter of fact, (guard) Delon Wrights mother is a police officer, and we were very cognizant of that and respectful of that.Its just to continue the conversation. I would argue those incidents needed to be talked about, and what better way for society to understand it than through sports?About three-quarters of NBA players are black. The league is considered the most progressive of North American pro sports. The league moved the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte to New Orleans over a North Carolina bathroom law that discriminated against transgender people.Commissioner Adam Silver said last week he hopes players continue to stand for the national anthem, but said there may be no organization in our society better positioned than the NBA to make an impact.NBA players have waded into the U.S. presidential race. LeBron James endorsed Hillary Clinton in an op-ed piece in the Akron Beacon Journal and Business Insider, referencing the violence, of every kind, the African-American community is experiencing in our streets and seeing on our TVs.Baron Davis wrote a column for the Players Tribune last week called Do Something, encouraging players to vote.I tell my players `Get your absentee ballots, and vote, Casey said. I remember my grandparents talking about when African-Americans couldnt vote. Or they tried to make it hard for them to vote.So that is a privilege a lot of people fought for, you went to jail for. Everyone should vote. Thats your way of showing power as an individual. We can protest, but the only way you fight stuff like that is through voting. Using your right to vote.

This story appears in ESPN The Magazines November 14 Pain Issue. Cheap Air Max TN White . Subscribe today!TONY STEWARTS FANS are getting antsy. There are 20 people sitting in a locker room at Texas Motor Speedway -- accountants, lawyers, housewives -- all wearing custom-tailored firesuits and glazed in sweat after driving a genuine Sprint Cup car around one of NASCARs fastest tracks. Each has donated $6,500, with the promised payoff of hanging with Stewart for a day at an event called the Smoke Show. Hes been doing it for nine years, raising more than $1.7 million for the Speedway Childrens Charities.But this year the events namesake is running late. Like several hours late. The participants understand its because his plane, inbound from Charlotte, North Carolina, had a mechanical issue. But that isnt keeping them from looking at their watches. I love him so much, but damn, dude, one participant says. Ive got a lot of s--- I want him to sign today. His career is almost done. Who knows when Ill get to see him again?As if on cue, the racer walks into the room dressed and ready, his smile and his hands both outstretched. What are yall doing just sitting around? I thought we were driving race cars today. Fans gasp. Hands involuntarily clap. Angst to awe: a perfect illustration of the Tony Stewart experience.On Nov. 20, when the checkered flag falls on the NASCAR season in South Florida, it also will fall on Stewarts 18-year Cup career, one that has produced 49 wins and three championships. Hes the only man to own Cups sponsored by Winston, Nextel and Sprint. Two decades of brilliance punctuated by controversy. The angry kid who arrived as a Busch Series part-timer in 1996 covered in Indiana red clay has given way to a gray-in-his-temples 45-year-old man -- not exactly mellowed but at least more evenly keeled, balanced out by mangled legs and a conflicted heart.As a Cup rookie in 1999, he was hailed as the second coming of Jeff Gordon, a youngster molded from the same Midwestern dirt that begat A.J. Foyt and Mario Andretti. The reality was that he brought a résumé more impressive than Gordons, having won an IndyCar championship and sporting a handful of near wins in the Indianapolis 500. What he did was kick open the door that Gordon had only cracked, letting in a conga line of dirt-track sprint car racers whod long been ignored by NASCAR team owners who preferred drivers from Southern asphalt.But while Gordon played the role of a G-rated starched-shirt corporate darling, Stewart was all T-shirts, flip-flops and middle fingers, cussing you out one day and hugging you the next.Take just 2002: Stewart was ripped for shoving a photographer in the Indianapolis Motor Speedway garage. Just days later, he was praised for winning at Watkins Glen (at a time when he was making anger management appointments, pushed to do so by his boss, Joe Gibbs). Three months later, Stewart won the first of his three Cup titles. On a media tour the week of the award banquet, he felicitously admitted to enjoying his time with the media and, in his acceptance speech, snatched a camera and snapped pictures of the photographers on the front row.Stewart long wondered what he would have to do to make people stop talking about the incident with the photographer at Indy. Unfortunately, what overshadowed that was something much darker. On Aug. 9, 2014, at tiny Canandaigua Speedway in upstate New York, local racer Kevin Ward Jr. was killed by the car Stewart was driving. After crashing, the 20-year-old angrily stepped out of his car and in front of Stewarts machine. Moments later, he was dead, struck by Stewarts car.One year earlier, almost to the day, a sprint car accident shattered Stewarts right leg. Now, having just emerged from that physical trauma, he was thrown into a fit of depression. He spent the days after Wards death behind closed doors with friends and family. Every major media outlet rushed to fill the silence, turning the grainy video footage of the incident into racings Zapruder film. Local authorities ruled it an accident and did not press charges (a civil suit is pending). But Stewarts long record of trackside outbursts left him little benefit of the doubt in the court of public opinion.I think about all of the amazing things that hes done behind the wheel, says Stewarts dad, Nelson. I hope that wherever he goes from here that people remember those moments again, not just the bad things.His rivals have long seen Stewarts contradictions. There are two Tony Stewarts, says Gordon, who did his retirement tour in 2015, fittingly, with a series of gifts and accolades versus Stewarts lets get this over with approach to 2016. Theres the guy weve all had issues with. And then theres the guy that we all know when cameras arent around. The stories are pretty amazing.Like the time Stewart heard about a group of abused greyhounds and sent his private plane to the West Coast and brought them east to find new homes. That same plane has shown up to fly grieving family members to the bedsides of mortally wounded racers -- as it did for the family of IndyCar racer Justin Wilson one year ago -- and it has done so for members of the same media corps he has often gone to war against.You go down into southern Indiana, where he grew up, and you start asking old retired sprint car racers where they got their wheelchairs, or who helped pay their medical bills or make their rent payments, says Foyt, Stewarts admitted hero, a man who has done the same for Indy 500 veterans. Dont bother asking Tony; he wont tell you about it. Thats not why he does it. He does it because he loves those guys and he loves short-track racing.During the times when his fuse was shortest, Stewart would find his center by racing anywhere and everywhere on weeknights and Saturday nights between NASCAR dates. Sure, he does that to get back to his roots, says Ken Schrader, a former longtime NASCAR racer and legendary moonlighter. But hes also always done it to help these struggling local short-track owners. Tony showing up is instant ticket sales. And hell stand there and sign autographs all night. Hes the best thing to happen to short-track racing in the last 20 years.Before Canandaigua, Stewarts post-NASCAR future was set. It would be the plan that had always existed: be team owner on weekends but spend the rest of his time driving wherever, in whatever, to help his beloved grass-roots racing get back on track. However, among his outspoken public jury are more than a few short-track owners who are now torn. They rely heavily on Stewarts help but worry about the consequences of bringing him in front of those who they believe identify more with Ward than with the superstar.With only a few races to go in his NASCAR career, Stewart isnt so much planning 2017 as he is counting down to the end of 2016. Hes unhappy with the current state of the sport: He hates the cars, hates the Chase format and hates what he sees as NASCARs inability to right its downward popularity curve.Next year hell still own his Cup Series team, but hell also still own his short-track team, not to mention some short tracks and an entire short-track series. He expects to enter 40 to 50 races but only after offseason surgery on the ailing back that sidelined him in the spring.People ask me all the time, whats next? Stewart says as he prepares to give two-seater hot-lap rides to the Smoke Show participants. The answer is a lot, I just dont know the exact details yet. I know Im going to be racing. Im retiring from Sprint Cup, not racing. I know Im going to be involved in racing until Im dead and gone.So while 2017 is up in the air, whats next right this minute at the Texas Motor Speedway is not. His interview over, Stewart slides behind the wheel of a bright red Chevy SSR. Riding shotgun is Smoke Show participant Al Schwarz of Ferris, Texas. Per Schwarzs request, Stewart drives the car out onto the frontstretch of Texas Motor Speedway and starts doing a burnout, smoking the tires up to a squeal that sounds like they might explode. The ride belonged to Schwarzs late father. He has photographers capturing the moment and will have the best image painted on the hood of the car, along with an image of his father looking down from racing heaven.I know there are people who dont like Tony Stewart, Schwarz says, breathless after the doughnuts. But when I told him what I wanted to do, he didnt even hesitate. I dont care what anyone says, thats a good man right there.Fittingly, the legacy of NASCARs most controversial driver might never be clear. But love him or hate him, you will notice that hes gone.

Thats not a comment on the suspension that banished the Portland Winterhawks general manager and coach from his Western Hockey League teams bench for most of the 2012-13 season. Kangaroos veterans Johnathan Thurston, Cameron Smith and Cooper Cronk believe the bond between the current squad is the closest theyve ever experienced.Victory over New Zealand in Sundays Four Nations final at Anfield will see Mal Meningas side leapfrog the Kiwis and return to top in the world standings and cap off a successful first tour in charge for the Queensland great.Cronk, Thurston and Smith are all featuring in their fourth tour of the UK and despite having never been on a losing side, the trio said theyve never been part of a happier and more united squad.Not to denigrate or disrespect anything from previous teams, but this team is a special bunch of guys and Mal deserves credit for what hes brought in, Cronk told AAP.The senior players have followed what Mal says and the younger guys have really bought into it as well and were all rowing in the same direction.Meninga stated before the tour departed Australia that he valued good character above all else when he selected his squad with the likes of Semi Radradra, Greg Bird and Andrew Fifita among those overlooked following recent off-field issues.After a spiteful State of Origin series there were concerns Queensland-NSW rivalries could spill over into camp but Thurston said Meningas approach has ensured no tensions have arisen.He knows how to bring a team together, he knowss how to get the best out of players and working to one common goal, Thurston told AAP.

Adelaide have backed out of nominating Ben Jarman, the son of AFL great Darren Jarman, as a father-son selection in next weeks draft. Walt Aikens Jersey .The Crows had flagged they would use their rights to the promising small forward but were unwilling to commit to taking Jarman with one of their five selections.Hawthorn also had rights to Jarman but earlier chose to let him go.Had Adelaide nominated Jarman before Fridays deadline, they would have been required to take him with one of their draft picks unless they had opted not to match a rival bid.It remains possible another club will swoop on Jarman in the national draft.If not, he will go to the rookie draft, where the Crows retain the right to nominate him as a father-son pick, in which case he would automatically join the club.Crows list manager Justin Reid said on Friday the club had been open with Jarman throughout the draft process.As we have previously stated, we will be true to our talent order, which Ben is part of, and see how the draft selections fall, he said.Geelong have also opted out of formally nominating father-son prospect Sam Simpson, the son of 114-gamer Sean Simpson.The AFL confirmed on Friday that Collingwoods nomination of Callum Brown and Josh Daicos, the sons of Magpies royalty Gavin Brown and Peter Daicos.West Coast have committed to taking Jake Waterman, the son of two-time premiership player Chris Waterman.He follows the lead of older brother Alec, who spent two seasons on West Coasts list but struggled after contracting glandular fever and was delisted in October. Lawrence Timmons Jersey . Bjorn, who had a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, made a testing six-foot putt to save par on the 16th and a birdie on the 17th before bogeying the final hole after a misjudged approach shot. American Kevin Streelman was in second place after shooting a 69. Brandon Doughty Jersey . Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 for the Celtics, who nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead. Sullingers 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnetts first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the off-season. http://www.officialauthenticdolphinsshop...ino-jersey.html . -- Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring four goals in his first four games. MONTREAL -- Erik Karlsson was relieved his Ottawa Senators piled on the goals for the first time in nearly a month.Ottawa scored more than twice in regulation time for the first time in its last 13 games as it downed the Montreal Canadiens 4-3 on Tuesday night. Karlsson scored the winner in the third period as the Sens came from behind to snap their two-game losing skid.We did a good job, forechecking hard, capitalizing on turnovers, said Karlsson, who reached the 400-point plateau with an assist in the second period. When we got it, we found a way to put it in the back of the net with good shots. When we needed it, we put it in the net.We had to make it as hard as we could for (Carey Price).Montreal had three one-goal leads in the game but the Sens never fell further behind.Mark Stone tied it at 3 from the slot after three Canadiens players got caught behind their own net. Karlsson, the Sens captain, then broke the deadlock at 5:37, the visitors first lead of the evening, on a fluke no-look shot from the blue line after a bad giveaway by Jeff Petry.We bounced back every time they got one and that was a key part of the game, said Mike Hoffman, who scored and had two assists. Definitely an interesting game to be a part of, going back and forth. We havent had too many of those this year.It gives the whole group a boost of confidence when we get more than one or two goals.Montreal played with five defensemen in the third period after Nathan Beaulieu left at the end of the second. Beaulieu took a shot from Derick Brassard to his neck and went straight to the dressing room.The Canadiens later confirmed Beaulieu was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons.With Beaulieus absence came extended ice times for Shea Weber (29:16) and Andrei Markov (30:43), Montreals veterran defensemen. Alterraun Verner Jersey. .Coach Michel Therrien didnt have additional information on Beaulieus injury after the game, though he admitted losing Beaulieu took a toll on his defense.For sure when youre missing a guy like Nathan, who can play on the power play, on the penalty kill, it taxed our defensemen, Therrien said. But I thought they did a good job. Markov had a hell of a game. Weber the same thing.After a sloppy first period by both teams, the goals came in quick succession in the second.Weber got the Habs on the board 56 seconds into the period with a thunderous slap shot from the point on the power play. Seven of Webers eight goals scored this season have been scored with the man advantage. Weber also has seven of Montreals 15 power-play goals.Five minutes later, with Ottawa on the power play, Hoffman beat Price above the shoulder from an extremely tight angle to make it 1-1.The Canadiens regained their lead at 7:29 when Alexander Radulov scored after an impressive effort. The Russian dangled around Hoffman along the boards, cut to the net, shot on Craig Anderson once then scored on his own rebound while falling to the ice.Brassard tied things 2-2 late in the second before Alex Galchenyuk answered back at 2:08 of the third.Game notes Anderson made 36 saves while Price stopped 19 of 23 shots in defeat. ... The Sens conceded a power-play goal for the first time in their last 14 games. ... Markov had three assists. ... Charles Hudon and Greg Pateryn were healthy scratches for Montreal.

LANDOVER, Md. Cheap Air Jordan 3 Retro Red . -- Sam Bradford grabbed his helmet with two hands and slammed it down on the sideline.The Vikings quarterback had just been picked off late in what would become a 26-20 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Minnesotas fourth consecutive defeat in a season that began with five consecutive victories and now is slipping away.Afterward, Bradford was asked what he could have done better on this afternoon.Not throwing an interception in the fourth quarter wouldve helped, Bradford replied.Scoring a single point in the second half might have been useful, too.Weve just got to be more consistent, Bradford said.Showing the sort of up-and-down play that encapsulates its season, Minnesota (5-4) trailed 14-0 less than a minute into the second quarter, put up three TDs in about 5 1/2 minutes at the end of the half to take the lead, and got outscored 12-0 the rest of the way.Im concerned, obviously, but I still believe, coach Mike Zimmer said. I believe that (if) we do a couple things here or a couple things there, were going to win some games. ... I just feel like if we can get over the hump, if we can keep fighting until we do that, positive things will happen. It doesnt look like that right now.Sure doesnt.The Vikings had problems in all three phases of the game. Blair Walsh missed an extra point on the final play of the first half, making him only 15 for 19 on the season. This came after Minnesota invited a half-dozen free agents to a tryout during the week before deciding to keep Walsh.Honestly, I didnt even see the kick, so I dont know what happened on it, Zimmer said, other than he missed.Asked whether he would evaluate Walshs status again, Zimmer replied: Yes, I will evaluate everything.Plenty for him to look at, including an offense that was shut out after halftime and twice failed to convert on third-and-1.Theres no excuse, guard Brandon Fusco said, for not getting a yard.The Vikings generally have become unable to run the ball since injuries to Adrian Peterson and starters along the offensive line. That last part only appeared to get worse on their final drive Sunday, when left tackle Jake Long -- as it is, he was on the field because Matt Kalil is on IR -- was carted off with an Achilles tendon injury. Zimmer said he believes Long is done for the season.Then theres the defense, which played at a level approaching historic greatness at the start of the season and now is merely OK.If the Redskins had not repeatedly stalled inside the red zone, the Vikings might have allowed more than four field goals in the second half.Weve got to create more turnovers. Weve got to be better on third down. Theres a lot of things that arent happening for us right now, defensive end Brian Robison said. At the end of the day, weve got to figure out what it is that weve got to get back to doing.Robison was referring to the defense in particular, but he could have been talking about the entire team.Zimmer insisted his players are still fighting, still putting in the right amount of effort to have more success.That was the coachs message to the media -- and in the locker room.After a while, you get tired of hearing that, and youve got to win a ... game, guard Alex Boone said. You can only say you played so tough for so long until it doesnt count anymore. These are games youve got to win.---For more NFL coverage: and Howard Fendrich on Twitter at Cheap Air Jordan 3 Retro Green .

Fans who came to the Meadowlands on Saturday night expected to see a Ben Franklin rematch in the $471,800 William Haughton Memorial, but instead they witnessed the crowning of Always B Miki as the clear-cut best older pacer in North America. Ray Allen Jersey .Freaky Feet Pete left the gate as has been the norm and quickly gave up command to Wiggle It Jiggleit at the opening quarter in 25 3/5. Those two came off the turn in line as Always B Miki began his move on the backstretch of the 1-1/8 mile race.Driver David Miller asked Always B Miki for speed and gunned to the front passing the half in 54 seconds. The duo continued the solid tempo as Shamballa initiated the outer flow while towing All Bets Off into the race.Shamballa gave his all on the rim, gaining steadily by three-quarters and coming up to the winner just before the mile marker in 1:48 1/5, but Always B Miki was too strong. Wiggle It Jiggleit attempted to split foes in the stretch but lacked his usual zest in the stretch while finishing third behind the top pair. Freaky Feet Pete was fourth.The final clocking of 2:01 1/5 set a world record, the third straight world record mile for Always B Miki.Once I got to the front as easily as I did, I thought he was in pretty good shape; I thought it would be more of a battle, said Hall of Famer Miller, who put Always B Miki in perspective with some of his past drives. Hes one of the best horses Ive ever driven. Ive driven some really good horses, but I have an emotional attachment that goes along with him. Hes definitely one of my favorites.Trainer Jimmy Takter was non-committal about the 5-year-olds next start, but it is widely expected to be the U.S. Pacing Championship on Hambletonian Day at The Meadowlands (August 6).It is such a long year, and Im dealing with flesh and blood. Every start for me, I have to absorb what he has done, and I have to see how he came out of the race, work on him a little bit. Hes not a horse that can race week after week, said Takter, who mentioned winning the Breeders Crown and TVG final as goals for later in the season.Always B Miki added $219,387 to his career earnings with the win and has now eclipsed $1.78 million for owners Bluewood Stable, Roll The Dice Stable and Christina Takter.The winner paid $2.80 as the favorite. Oscar Robertson Jersey .C. Lions has come to an end. Banks told TSN on Jan 2 that he had no interest in playing out the option year of his contract with the Lions in 2014, and he again made that clear in a conversation with Lions GM Wally Buono last week.

THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands -- Greg McDermott isnt ready to think about No. 22 Creightons place in the national polls just yet.Ill worry about that come March, the Bluejays coach said.Creighton is riding high, though, after beating N.C. State 112-94 on Sunday night to advance to the championship game of the Paradise Jam tournament.Cole Huff had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and six other players finished in double figures for Creighton (4-0), which had its highest offensive output in a regulation game since scoring 115 points against Indiana State on Jan. 19, 1985.The polls dont mean anything to me right now, McDermott said. They will in March, but not right now. We just have to continue to get better.Im proud of the fact that coming off an emotional win like we had against (No. 9) Wisconsin, weve been able to put together two pretty good performances back to back. Thats a credit to this team.Khyri Thomas added 16 points and Marcus Foster had 15 among the seven Bluejays (4-0) in double figures. Creighton led by 24 at one point in the second half.Terry Henderson scored 28 points and three other players finished in double figures for the Wolfpack (3-1), who battled to six ties and eight lead changes in the first half.Dennis Smith Jr. added 21 points, Torin Dorn had 16 and Abdul-Malik Abu had 13 for N.C.

Discount Bucks Jerseys. C. State coach Mark Gottfried said. We had a hard time stopping them from scoring. I liked a lot of things we did -- we scored 92 ourselves -- but we just really couldnt slow them down, much less stop them.

Sydney rookie Harrison Marsh could see his omission from Saturdays AFL grand final coming. Blake Griffin Jersey .With captain Jarrad McVeigh and Rising Star winner Callum Mills cleared to return from injury and Aliir Aliir (knee) the only forced exclusion, 22-year-old Marsh was first in line to make way after holding his spot for the past four games.The least experienced player in the Swans preliminary final side, Marsh certainly didnt disgrace himself but couldnt do enough to keep his spot.Its not easy. I sort of could see it coming a little bit with obviously Millsy and Macca coming back in, he said at Fridays grand final parade.I knew probably at the start of the week and just had to wait until Macca passed his fitness test.Obviously, its a grand final. Id love to be playing it. At the same time, I understand what goes on and you just have to deal with it.Marsh spent three years on the Swans list without playing a senior game before earning a call up in round 10 after strong form in the NEAFL.Named as an emergency, Marsh remains an outside chance of playing in the unlikely event McVeigh or Mills pull up sore in the lead up to Saturdays game.The unlucky defender says hell do his best to stay positive for his teammates despite his disappointment at missing out on the grand final.Im going to really enjoy the next couple of days and hopefully we get the win tomorrow, he said.Weve got a good list and you can always hope for a grand final in the next couple of years. Joe Dumars Jersey . The 26-year-old Ireland striker, who has four goals this season, has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with his new club. Youth Pistons Jerseys . Mitch Holmberg added a goal and three assists. Connor Chartier also scored for the Chiefs (3-0-0). Luke Harrison spoiled Garrett Hughsons shutout bid with a power-play goal at 13:17 of the third period. The Spokane goaltender finished with 28 saves, including a Brandon Fushimi penalty shot in the second period that would have tied the game 1-1. .Y. -- Jayna Hefford scored the winning goal Friday as Canada survived a scare with a 4-3 win over Sweden at the Four Nations womens hockey tournament. One of the great misnomers in baseball is the offseason, because there is no offseason. Baseball has become a 12-month sport, the late fall and winter being a time for trades, free agent signings, GM meetings, winter meetings, arbitration, labor negotiations, hirings and firings.Here are 10 storylines to watch for this offseason.10. The award winnersSome choices will be easy. Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager is likely going to be the unanimous choice for the National League Rookie of the Year, but the voting for many awards will be close, if not contentious, most notably the American League MVP.By most statistical measures, especially the advanced metrics, Mike Trout was the ALs best player this year, but he played for an Angels team that won 74 games and never contended. Only five times has a player won an MVP for a sub-.500 team, but this could be the sixth time. There are other quality candidates who played for playoff teams or contenders, including Bostons Mookie Betts and David Ortiz, Torontos Josh Donaldson, Houstons Jose Altuve and Baltimores Manny Machado. But it appears there has been a slight shift in the thinking of the voters, a subtle move toward voting for the best player as opposed to the best player on a contender. So Trout has a chance to win his second MVP award to go with his three second-place finishes. He is 25 years old.9. Hall of FameThree players with first-ballot credentials will be up for voting for the first time this year: Manny Ramirez, Ivan Pudge Rodriguez and Vladimir Guerrero. The first two have varying connections to PEDs. Ramirez served two suspensions for violations of baseballs drug policy (2009 and 2011). Rodriguez was never suspended or caught taking anything, but he was mentioned in Jose Cansecos book Juiced.?Ramirezs is likely in the category with Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, who are at 44.3 percent and 45.2 percent of the vote, respectively, after four years on the ballot, and might not ever get enough support to in. Pudge would seem to have a better chance of eventually getting in even if he doesnt make it this year.Jeff Bagwell?(71.6 percent last year), Tim Raines (69.8) and Trevor Hoffman?(67.3) have the best shot at election. Its Raines 10th and final year on the ballot. The voting will take place in December, and will be announced in January. At the winter meetings in December, a special committee will consider another list of names from Todays Game Era (1988-present), which includes players that were previously on the ballot for the Baseball Writers Association of America (Mark McGwire, Harold Baines, Albert Belle, Orel Hershiser, Will Clark, among others), as well as managers (Davey Johnson and Lou Piniella) and executives (George Steinbrenner and John Schuerholz). Someone, maybe more than one, is going to the Hall of Fame from this group.8. ManagersTwo teams, the Diamondbacks and Rockies, are looking for a manager. The Rockies have talked to, among others, Brad Mills and Glenallen Hill. The Diamondbacks have considered Phil Nevin, Alex Cora and Don Wakamatsu, but appear to be zeroing in on Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo, who did a nice job filling in for ailing John Farrell with the Red Sox for the final 58 games (28-20) of the 2015 season. Lovullo is 51 and an old-school guy in many respects. Hes the best sign-stealer in the major leagues, but he also embraces the new analytics age in the game. In the previous two years under Tony LaRussa and Dave Stewart, the D-backs attempted to run their team in a pure baseball fashion, without much help from advanced metrics. But that way didnt work. Their failure is another sign that teams are being run more differently than ever. Teams are now run by young, exceptionally bright GMs who sometimes value data over the eyes, ears and feel of veteran baseball men. Consequently, the D-backs hired Mike Hazen of the Red Sox to run their team, and chances are hell hire Lovullo to manage it.7. Speed-up rulesThere is nothing wrong with the game. The game on the field is still great, but executives, led by commissioner Rob Manfred, are determined to speed things up, especially after the average time of game went from 2 hours, 56 minutes in 2015 to 3:01. Dont look for a rule that limits the number of relievers a manager can use in a game, but look for changes, including limiting trips to the mound by a catcher or an infielder or maybe even the pitching coach. In the postseason, Cubs catcher Willson Contreras went to the mound far too often, making the game drag. The intentional walk rule might be altered; the manager would just put up four fingers, and the batter would be sent to first base without four pitches being thrown. And baseball will continue to try to keep hitters in the batters box between pitches, and make pitchers deliver the ball in a timelier manner.The game likely wont adopt a strict pitch clock in 2017, but after watching Dodgers reliever Pedro Baez (hes not the only one) take 30-35 seconds between pitches, bringing the game to a grinding halt, something has to be done. Here are the times of game for the seven games in the 1948 World Series, the last time the Indians were champions: 1:42, 2:14, 1:36, 1:31, 2:39 and 2:16. What a difference.6. TradesTodays young, relentless, creative GMs find a way to make trades, which is why an offseason thats not strong on free agents could include a bunch of deals. It might all begin with the White Sox, who have had little to no success in the past couple of years after making a number of moves. Will they take the next step and trade left-hander Jose Quintana or ace Chris Sale? Dealing Sale, who is a terrific pitcher with a team-friendly contract, doesnt make sense in a lot of ways, but maybe now is the time for the White Sox to explore what they can get for him. Some teams, including the Red Sox, have a surplus of young players and might be able to swing a deal for Sale, who potentially could turn a noncontender into a contender, and a contender into a champion. Quintana wont bring what Sale could bring, but he has value.The Rays have marketable pitching to deal, led by?Jake Odorizzi, and they have to upgrade their offense. It will be interesting to see if the Dodgers try again to move outfielder Yasiel Puig. He made strides toward becoming a better player and, more importantly, a better teammate after a summer demotion to Triple-A. Will the Reds dangle first baseman Joey Votto, who hit .408 with a 1.158 OPS the second half of the season? If they do, several teams (Toronto? Votto is Canadian) could have interest. But the cosst of that contract might be prohibitive. Cheap Pistons Jerseys. ?Mike Trout and Andrew McCutchen?will come up in trade rumors, as they often do this time of year, but dont look for either to be traded.5. The Toronto Blue JaysThey have made it to the American League Championship Series each of the past two years but lost to the Royals, then the Indians. The Jays have a tremendous amount of money with which to deal, but there is a question about how much they are willing to spend on their own potential free agents, notably outfielders Jose Bautista and Michael Saunders?and first baseman/DH Edwin Encarnacion.The Jays are being run by club president Mark Shapiro, who comes from small-market roots in Cleveland and has not shown a tendency to spend an enormous amount on everyday players in their 30s -- Bautista is 36, Encarnacion is 33. Bautista is looking for a big payday, and Encarnacion, who hit 42 homers and drove in 127 runs last year, is likely going to get a big payday, maybe from the Red Sox, who need a DH to replace David Ortiz. Its possible that the Jays will lose him and Bautista to free agency and try to build around their young starting pitching, led by Aaron Sanchez.4. Free-agent hittersEncarnacion, Bautista and Saunders are part of a group of free-agent hitters that lacks young, all-round everyday players but still includes some useful options. Outfielder/DH Mark Trumbo led the major leagues in home runs in 2016. One of his teammates with the Orioles, catcher Matt Wieters, is out there. Another catcher, the Nationals Wilson Ramos, is available, but his value might be diminished somewhat by a knee injury that could force him to miss the beginning of the 2017 season. There are other hitters available, from outfielders Josh Reddick, Dexter Fowler, Carlos Beltran and Matt Holliday to first basemen Mike Napoli and Mitch Moreland to third baseman Justin Turner.Ian Desmond, who resurrected his career with the Rangers in 2016, has established himself as a major league outfielder, but its still possible that someone could sign him to play his original position, shortstop. The Rangers will make Desmond a qualifying offer ($17.2 million this year), so he could end up back in Texas.The best all-round player on the free agent market might be outfielder?Yoenis Cespedes, who is expected to opt out of his deal with the Mets before Saturday to become a free agent again. The Mets would like to have him back, but there will be competition from several other teams.3. Free-agent starting pitchersIt is a weak group, as weak as any year we can remember. Left-hander Rich Hill, age 36, is probably the best of the bunch (look for the Yankees to be involved for Hill). He has had injury issues the past two years, but starting Sept. 1, 2015, only Clayton Kershaw has a lower ERA than Hill. His curveball, with all its variations, is difficult to hit.After him, theres Andrew Cashner, Ivan Nova, Jeremy Hellickson, R.A. Dickey and a few others, but this free agent group is one reason that teams will try to improve their rotations through trades rather than signings.2. ClosersThis is the strength of the free-agent market. It is led by Aroldis Chapman, who throws 103 mph, is 28 years old and has a strikeout rate unmatched in major league history for anyone with 350 innings. Chapman was suspended 30 games at the beginning of the 2016 season under Major League Baseballs domestic violence policy and there could be some teams not interested because of that. Kenley Jansen might have more value than Chapman because of the way he pitched in the postseason, going more than one inning, entering in the seventh inning, showing flexibility and durability.The way Jansen (and more importantly, Andrew Miller) was used in October will not change the way teams use their closers in the regular season, not with 162 games and so few off days. But Jansen (and Miller) might make teams a little less rigid about how they use their closer. There are other closers out there in free agency, including Mark Melancon. Even teams with a top-shelf closer, such as the Red Sox, might try to add another late-inning guy to simulate what the Indians had with Miller and closer Cody Allen.The Giants are one team that badly needs a closer (30 blown saves in 2016).1. LaborThe collective bargaining agreement expires Dec. 1. Twenty years ago, that would mean potentially really bad news, and perhaps a lockout or a strike. But the two sides -- the owners and the Major League Baseball Players Association -- are so much less contentious than they were in the early 1980s and the mid-90s when the game nearly imploded. And Manfred overseeing the process after being so closely involved in the past bodes well for a resolution without a work stoppage. Still, there are significant, complicated issues to study and discuss, led by strengthening the polices on domestic violence, performance-enhancing drugs, tobacco, etc. In the past year, many players, including stars such as Justin Verlander, have asked for stronger testing and punishment for PEDs.?Some other issues likely to come up:? Then there is the issue of the schedule being shortened from 162 to 154 games. That still remains unlikely because fewer games would mean less money for the owners.? There will be a huge discussion on roster size -- should teams be able to have 35-40 players active in September, or will teams be able to activate only 30 players each night?? The union is expected to fight to abolish the qualifying offer, which acts, in a way, like the franchise tag in football. It can limit the movement of players due to the attachment of a draft choice, and it can delay the signing of a player deep into January.? There could be major changes with the international draft, with a soft slotting system that simply didnt work over the past few years. An international draft is possible, but more likely there will be a more stringent slotting system with penalties that could cost teams players, roster spots or draft picks.? There will be the usual debates on the minimum salary (currently $507,500) and the luxury tax ($189 million) as well as the future of the DH. It is ridiculous that the game has two sets of rules. Executives, players and managers from the National League mostly believe that the game is better without the DH, but the union isnt going to allow for the dumping of the DH because it often is a high-paying job. So, the status quo likely will remain. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2018 Wholesale Jerseys 2020 China Jerseys ' ' '

The Michigan offense is receiving a lot of credit for a terrific 5-0 start in which the No. Nike Roshe Black And White . 4 Wolverines won by an average of 32 points per game.The defense is certainly doing its part, too.Michigan ranks fifth in total defense (247.6 yards per game) and sixth in scoring defense (12.4 points per game) as it takes to the road for the first time this season when it faces Rutgers on Saturday at Piscataway, N.J. (7 p.m. EDT, ESPN2).The Wolverines (2-0 Big Ten) are fresh off a 14-7 victory over Wisconsin last Saturday in a top-10 showdown. And it was the Michigan defense that led the way by allowing a season-low 159 yards and recording three interceptions -- two by senior cornerback Channing Stribling and the game-clinching pick by senior All-America cornerback Jourdan Lewis.It was a game ball for Don Brown, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh said of his defensive coordinator. I was very impressed with our defense, and our defensive coaches and the character of our defensive players and their talent -- A-plus-plus.The Wisconsin game marked the second time the Wolverines held an opponent below 100 passing yards this season. And the play on third downs has had been incredible, as Michigan leads the nation in opponents third-down conversion rate at 15.4 percent.Opponents have converted just 10 of 65 third downs.Making the season-long defensive performance even better is the fact that Lewis is now fully healthy after missing the first three games with three different injuries. He announced his presence in a loud manner by making an acrobatic, one-handed interception that sealed the victory over Wisconsin.Lewis sees the success of the defense as something that is built on teamwork all the way through the unit.I know the D-line believes in us, Lewis said. The linebackers believe in us, and I know that we believe in those guys. Thats that trust thats been built over the years, and its understanding that those guys are going to get their jobs done.The Wolverines figure to have an easy time with Rutgers (2-3, 0-2 Big Ten) based on the Scarlet Knights troubles last Saturday in a 58-0 loss to No. 2 Ohio State.Rutgers was outgained 669-116 by the Buckeyes and completed just three passes. Ohio State had a 32-9 edge in first downs while thoroughly dominating the Scarlet Knights.The poor performance dropped junior quarterback Chris Lavianos completion percentage to 49.6 percent. Laviano has passed for 680 yards and five touchdowns against two interceptions while receiving hefty criticism from the teams fan base.Everybody talks about a football teamss quarterback, Rutgers coach Chris Ash said. Thats just the nature of the business. If you dont want to be in that (conversation), dont be a quarterback. Can some of our passing issues be attributed to Chris? Absolutely. Are they all attributed to Chris? Not at all.The Scarlet Knights have a solid running back, junior Robert Martin (398 yards in four games). But Rutgers has been badly hurt by the loss of senior game-breaking returner Janarion Grant.Grant sustained a season-ending ankle injury against Iowa on Sept. 24. He holds the school record of 2,606 kickoff return yards and shares the NCAA FBS record of eight career kick-return scores (five kickoffs, three punts).The defense is led by sophomore free safety Kiy Hester (36 tackles), senior defensive end Julian Pinnix-Odrick (four sacks) and senior strong safety Anthony Cioffi (two interceptions).One week after being battered by Ohio State, Rutgers will attempt to slow down a Michigan offense ranked 10th nationally with a scoring average of 44.4 points per game.Wolverines sophomore quarterback Wilton Speight has been solid with 10 touchdowns against two interceptions while completing 63 percent of his passes. Speight teamed with senior receiver Amara Darboh on the decisive 46-yard touchdown pass in the win over Wisconsin.Darboh is Michigans leading receiver with 23 catches for 335 yards and five touchdowns. Senior tight end Jake Butt has contributed 22 catches for 265 yards and three scores.Its always fun to go into somebodys house, Butt said, and youre kind of backed up against the wall. Youve got a lot of adversity because youre going against their home crowd.The teams have split two previous meetings, and a 2014 visit to New Jersey wasnt the least bit fun for Michigan. The Scarlet Knights notched a 26-24 victory in a stunning outcome that went a long way toward putting intense heat on then-coach Brady Hoke before he eventually was fired.Harbaugh was hired as Hokes replacement, and now the Wolverines are rolling in his second season.Hes taken it to another level, Ash said. Hes very creative, thinks outside the box. Finds new ways to get his brand out there, and give him a lot of credit, hes done an outstanding job. That whole staff has done an outstanding job. Nike Roshe One Print US . -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama. Nike Roshe Two Leather . Clarkson had been dealing with an elbow injury in early January and will be out of action for at least one week. He has three goals and five assists through 36 games with the Leafs this season. . 8 Kansas to a 64-63 win over Texas Tech on Tuesday night. The freshman from Vaughan, Ont. LOS ANGELES -- The NBAs top-rated defense and an unblemished road record have the Los Angeles Clippers sitting pretty and fashioning the leagues best record.The Clippers (9-1) will go for their seventh win in a row Monday night when they host the Brooklyn Nets.Over the weekend, Los Angeles capped a two-game trip with back-to-back wins at the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday and at the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday. By beating the Thunder, the Clippers avenged their lone loss, an 85-83 decision at home on Nov. 2.Although the Thunder snapped the Clippers string of holding seven consecutive opponents less than 100 points in a 110-108 setback Saturday, Los Angeles wouldnt be deterred en route to its fifth straight decision away from home in a 119-105 romp over the Timberwolves.The Clippers are off to a franchise-best start and lead the league in several defensive categories, including points allowed (91.5 per game), defensive efficiency (92.7) and opponents shooting percentage (40.6 percent).Offensively, they are averaging 107 points, a differential of 15.1, which also is tops in the NBA.I knew wed be one of the top offenses in the league. We have so many scorers, said Clippers reserve guard Austin Rivers, according to the Orange County Register. The combination of us fits perfectly. On defense, I didnt know how we were going to be. I thought we would maybe struggle.Brooklyn (4-5) has struggled defensively. The Nets are ranked 22nd in opponents points (107.6) while scoring 106.3 per game.The Nets have been careless with the basketball, too, committing an aaverage of 17. Nike Roshe One Hyperfuse. 1 turnovers. They will attempt to limit those mistakes against a Clippers unit tied with Dallas at third for the least miscues at 11.3 per outing entering Sunday.The Nets kicked off their three-game swing with a 122-104 rout of the Phoenix Suns on Saturday. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson led the Nets with 20 points and a career-best 13 rebounds in the victory.Its been getting better for me, said Hollis-Jefferson, who is averaging 13 points per game in his last four contests since a scoreless outing against the Detroit Pistons on Nov. 2. Finding a peace. Im playing in a happiness out there. Its really helped me to contribute to the team like I know how to. My teammates are encouraging me to be aggressive.The Nets stopover at Staples features back-to-back games against the Clippers and the Lakers on Tuesday before they wrap up their journey at Oklahoma City on Friday.The Nets will be without guards Jeremy Lin (hamstring) and Isaiah Whitehead (concussion). In their absences, Brooklyn has gotten a boost from guard Sean Kilpatrick, who started for the second time this season and produced 19 points and nine boards against the Suns.Kilpatrick is averaging 15.8 points, second on the team behind center Brook Lopez (19.4 points).Blake Griffin leads the Clippers at 20.2 points, while Chris Paul is averaging 19 points and a league-high 2.7 steals. Center DeAndre Jordan averages 10.8 points and 12.2 rebounds (sixth best).
