The Buy Cheap Adidas Yeezy adds two small grip-style modules designed to cater to Irving moves, making the defender who likes to shift to better play. Bruce Lee has a famous saying: "Always be yourself, brave to express yourself, believe in yourself."This sentence deeply branded Kobe Bryant and Carey Owen's mind. Bruce Lee's philosophy of life helped Bryant and Irving burst their strong potential both inside and outside the stadium. For Owen, his Mamba spirit started at the age of 17 when he wore Zoom Kobe 5 inspired by Bruce Lee at the Nike Show in California. In honor of that special occasion and his admiration for Kobe Bryant and Bruce Lee, the new KYRIE 3 Mamba Mentality revisits this theme.

TORONTO - The Blue Jays beat the Seattle Mariners 14-4 on Monday night, taking some of the edge off following a disappointing 1-6 road trip through Baltimore and New York. Chris Stewart Jersey . Prior to the game, TSN.ca sat down with veteran left-hander Mark Buehrle to follow up on his "true colours" comment from last week, his strange season, his future beyond baseball and whether he thinks the Blue Jays are close to being a legitimate contender in the American League East. Listen to the interview HERE! Below is the transcript: TSN.ca: Mark lets start with a comment that you made after your last start. This is a club, obviously, that has struggled through most of August and part of September and you said its times like this when some players or groups can show their true colours. What did you mean by that? BUEHRLE: Well, I mean, it kind of says it in the wording. Its just every year when you kind of get to the end of the year and youre out of it you just kind of see how guys go about their business, to attitudes, just everything. Its kind of everything combined, the true colours come out. When everything is going good you can get away with whatever. You can come in late and no one says anything but whenever youre late and were losing, everything gets magnified and its just kind of how people react. Even when, sometimes when you might say something to a guy about, they go, hey theres a problem or this was brought to my attention, its kind of the way, some people say I dont give a crap, who cares whatever that person says. Its just their true colours come out at the end of the year whenever, at the end of the year when things arent going right. TSN.ca: Is that worrying to you or is that just how things go and this is nothing unique to this particular team? BUEHRLE: I mean, I think it happens every year. There are people on teams on every year that you play that just, I dont even know the word to say but there are people that get like that whenever things arent going right. They just kind of have this attitude about them, showing up late, not really wanting to do anything. I dont know, its just kind of everything combined but it happens on every team when youre losing and everything. It happens. It aint just like its happened on this team. I think it happens every year. TSN.ca: This team has been a team of extremes. Lengthy winning streaks, lengthy losing streaks, it seems like its been very rare this year where youve kind of ridden a small wave. There have always been peaks and valleys. Do you have any explanation for that? BUEHRLE: No. Obviously when things are going good its fun. Weve had a lot of injuries over the course of the year, which obviously every team does so you cant make an excuse but it seemed like a lot of times we didnt have our main lineup in there. We had pieces missing the whole time so when youre putting pieces in and trying to gel as a team with your starting lineups and going out there trying every day its hard to, I guess, gel together. But I cant pinpoint why we win six or seven and then go out there and look like we cant win a game for a week. Again, thats why we play 162 games over the course of the year because youre going to have winning streaks and losing streaks and whoever comes out on top obviously are the ones going to the playoffs. TSN.ca: Weve watched your season but how would you describe it? BUEHRLE: Ups and downs. First two months were outstanding and then went into a little funk and like I said when I was 10-1, I said everything is going good for me. I mean, pitching well, defence is playing behind me, were scoring runs, bullpen holding the lead, I mean thats what you need to have a start like that. Then, obviously, it kind of came back to reality and we werent scoring runs, we werent playing defence, I wasnt pitching good. When I would pitch good we werent scoring. When I pitched bad we scored a ton of runs. It just, everything wasnt coming together like it was the first two months. TSN.ca: I think about a month ago you had a pretty good start and you said afterward that you didnt want Alex or Gibby or any of your teammates doubting you through that rough stretch that you had kind of post-All-Star Break. Did you at any point begin to doubt yourself? BUEHRLE: I mean, I think you do whenever you struggle. I dont know if its doubt or just frustration. I mean when you struggle or have some bad games, I think its human nature just to think in the back of your mind, man, what the hecks going on? Why am I pitching like this? Like I said then Ive been through stretches where Ive been dog crap before and I came out of it. I mean there was one time when I think I was like 1-10 and I couldnt get out of like the third inning for like a month. In your mind youre like, man am I done? Do I need to go home and be done with baseball because I cant get guys out anymore and then it turned around, I turned around and won some games. Its just human nature to have that feeling. It was probably one of those things I said it kind of out of frustration and you know, in my mind, Im pitching like crap right now. I dont feel that way when everybody else struggles and I know they dont feel that way with me but its just something I said. TSN.ca: Physically how have you felt this year? BUEHRLE: Felt great. Obviously there were some times when you go through a dead arm period. I mean, Ive said before, you dont really feel it but you just know when your balls not going where you want to and you dont feel as strong but overall if I can feel like this next year and the year after that then Ill take it. TSN.ca: You dont seem to be a guy who wears much. Youre able to kind of let whatever go, good, bad, ugly, whatever the case may be. Is that just the way youve always been or have you learned enough over your extensive time in this game to just kind of deal with whatever comes? BUEHRLE: I think both. I think when I was younger, obviously you worry about it more when you lose. I mean, still, when I lose now its not like Im happy or Im content with it. I still get frustrated but I know in your mind just, hey, throw it out the window and get ready for your next start whether you win or lose. I think its helped being in the game longer to have that mentality and the attitude. I mean, Ive talked to some of these guys and they say, yeah but youre established and you know if you have a bad start youre not going to be getting sent down, where as some guys may have that in the back of their mind. I think its my personality but its also being in the league that long. TSN.ca: Do you expect to pitch after this contract expires, which happens at the end of next year? BUEHRLE: Ive got to worry about next year and being healthy and going out and pitching for a full year and then after that Ive got to worry about being healthy and somebody wanting me so I dont know. Even if I had a decision in my mind right now like Im either 100-percent retiring or 100-percent coming back I wouldnt, Im not going to come out and say it because Im not going to deal with it all next year, you know hey, are you retiring, youre coming back, what are you looking for? Just, well go off in the sunset next year after the seasons over and well go home, sit down with my wife and see what we decide. TSN.ca: So youre not looking for a retirement tour of any kind where you get gifts from each and every opponent? BUEHRLE: No, no, I think you know that. The whole reason Im not going to announce anything is because I dont want to have to deal with the media every time you go to a new city where theyre going to, that citys media is going to want to talk to you about retiring. Just as I came into the league, Im going to go out of the league. I came in as a quiet, young, non-prospect guy and Im going to go out playing. TSN.ca: I dont want to go too far down this road because you still are a ballplayer but what are some of the things youd like to do beyond your time in the game? BUEHRLE: Pretty much be at home, be a dad. Get involved in kids sports, music, gymnastics, dance, I mean whatever the kids decide to do when they get older. I kind of want to be a part of their life. We miss a lot playing this game and just to go home and be at home. Hunt, be in wildlife, just do stuff that I havent done. I havent been home for a summer time in probably 25 years between college and playing ball all the time. Obviously once I signed to play pro so I havent really been at home for a summer time in that long. Go to like the Ozarks, go get a boat and pretty much have nothing to do and no time scheduled. Wherever and whenever I want to go I can do it. TSN.ca: Last one for you, I promise, is this team close to being a true contender in the American League East? BUEHRLE: I mean Id like to say yeah but I kind of, the last two years Ive said I thought we had a chance to win and see where were at? I mean theyre going in the right direction but at the same time weve still got to go out there and play. They put a good team on but weve got to have guys stay healthy to go out there and compete but, again, I cant foresee the future. I was wrong the last two years so maybe I should say no, were not going to and then that might reverse the curse or something. I dont know. TSN.ca: But those young pitchers, Stroman, Sanchez, Hutch, those guys impress you? BUEHRLE: Theyve got some young guys. I mean the whole trade deadline came up, I said its tough to trade a couple of these guys away. If theyre asking for these guys, this is your future right here. How are you going to trade it away? TSN.ca: Thanks for this, Mark. BUEHRLE: Youre welcome. Custom Minnesota Wild Jerseys . "I honestly dont know," he said. Try this: 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds by Rajon Rondo, a 62-37 rebounding advantage by the Celtics and a horrible 4-for-30 shooting performance on 3-pointers by the Nets. Jared Spurgeon Jersey . Four years after winning gold on home ice in Vancouver, the Canadians will get a chance to make it two in a row Sunday against Sweden after beating the United States 1-0 in the Olympic semifinals Friday at Bolshoy Ice Dome.PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns might be excused for their defensive lapses. They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. The Suns achieved season highs in total points, points in a half and assists, and tied their single-game best for made 3-pointers in a 129-120 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night. Their first-half point total of 79 was the most in the NBA before halftime this season and two shy of a US Airways Center record for points in a half. The only cloudy spot for the Suns was that they allowed more than 100 points for the fifth straight game. This after they sank 15 3-pointers and dished out 29 assists in a blink-and-you-missed it kind of game where neither team paid any mind to the shot clock. "Both of our teams are hard to guard in terms of how we play. Kicking it up and quick shots, and the way that both teams have guards that can really penetrate," Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. "That breaks down defences when teams are good at passing the ball and shooting the ball. Sometimes there might look like there was zero defence out there, but Im sure the guys were trying." Gerald Green certainly was trying on offence. He hit 5 of 6 3-pointers in the first half and finished with 33 points. The previous high for Phoenix in any half this season was 67 points, but 63 per cent shooting, including 12 of 18 on 3-pointers in the first half, shattered the team mark. "We were making 2s and some 3s. They were making all 3s," Hawks guard Jeff Teague said. Goran Dragic added 19 points for the Suns, hearing the chants of "MVP" from the home crowd, and Marcus Morris had 18 points and nine rebounds off the bench. Twin brother Markieff added 21 points and eight rebounds. "Its two fast-paced teams going against each other," Green said. "We knew it was going to be like that, but I didnt know they were going to be running like that." Phoenix led by as many as 15 points late in the second quarter, even though Atlanta scored 65 first-half points, including 37 in the first quarter, the highest against the Suns in any first quarter this season. Teague had 29 points and eight assists for the Hawks, and Mike Scott added 20 points. "Its nothing we need to be super overly cautious about," Green said of the Suns defence, "but we do need to take a step back and kind of look and see whaat were doing wrong, especially in the first quarter. Daniel Winnik Jersey. " The second half saw slightly less scoring from both teams, but the Suns led 90-77 after Greens high-flying dunk over the Hawks Shelvin Mack with 7:21 left in the third quarter. The Suns lead was at 95-89 after Kyle Korver hit his fifth 3-pointer at the 3:54 mark, and down to 95-91 on a basket by Mack with 3:22 to play. Mack made it a one-point game with a layup to cap an 8-0 run, but the Suns scored seven of the last eight points of the third quarter to take a 102-95 lead into the fourth. Leandro Barbosa, playing his first game since missing the past five with a sprained toe, scored five key points in the fourth quarter to keep the Hawks at bay. The Suns never held less than a five-point lead in the quarter. A transition pass from Dragic to P.J. Tucker for a long jumper made the score 121-110 with 3:20 left in the game and essentially ended any chance for a Hawks comeback. "They shot the ball extremely well. They play with great pace, they put lot of pressure in your defence, make or miss," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. "Our transition defence wasnt good enough." The Hawks have lost 11 of their last 12 games. The Suns havent lost two straight games to the Hawks since the 1991-92 season. It took Korver less than two minutes to continue his NBA-record streak of at least one made 3-pointer in a game. His long-range shot at 10:29 of the first quarter gave him 127 straight games with a made three-ball. Korver made six of seven 3-pointers to finish with 18 points. NOTES: Newly acquired power forward Shavlik Randolph made his Suns debut Sunday. He played 10 minutes and scored two points off the bench. ... Hornacek said guard Eric Bledsoe, who is coming back from knee surgery earlier this season, looked good in 5-on-5 action in practice recently. Bledsoe hasnt played since Dec. 30. The Suns want Bledsoes conditioning to return to game level before allowing him to play, which could keep him out for another two weeks. ... Budenholzer is a native of Holbrook, Ariz., in northeastern Arizona, and had family and friends at Sundays game. ... Hawks F Paul Millsap missed his fourth straight game with a right knee contusion. ... C Mike Muscala, signed late last week, made his Hawks debut and played 19 minutes. He had four points, five rebounds and two blocked shots. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

The NHLs Mar. Luis Hernandez Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell. Check out todays trade-related reports and speculation from around the NHL beat, including Martin Brodeurs apparent willingness to leave New Jersey. Open for Business? The long-time face of the New Jersey Devils franchise has stated that he might be okay with finishing his career as a temporary face for another franchise. Martin Brodeur told New Jerseys The Record that hed be open to a move that would see him leave New Jersey in favour of more playing time. “Im open to anything,” Brodeur told The Records Tom Gulitti. “I just want to play. So, like I said in Toronto, if theres a better situation for me, Ill take it. If its here or somewhere else, it doesnt matter.” That said, TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie believes that the best fit for Brodeur might well be in East Rutherford for the duration of this season, especially since creasemate Cory Schneider has already opened the door for Brodeur once this season. On Wednesday nights edition of The Quiz, McKenzie said: “If Im Lou Lamoriello, Im not trading Marty Brodeur for a third-round pick. If he wants to walk in the summer, he can go then.” Wait Until Summer? The Dallas Stars find themselves in an interesting position, trade-wise. With Stephane Robidas, Ray Whitney and Vernon Fiddler eligible for unrestricted free agency this summer, they may have pieces to move should they decide they are out of the Western Conference playoff race. But Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News sees more benefit in waiting for the summer to try to land another impact piece like the team did this past off-season with Tyler Seguin. With the possibility that Robidas may not be healthy enough to deal by the deadline and with Jim Nill reportedly only willing to move prospects of picks in "the right deal," Heika believes the Stars would be best served keeping it simple and keep the focus on stockpiling picks and prospects. The Stars enter Thursday nights games seven points back of eighth-place Vancouver with two games in hand. Youth in Revolt The Detroit Red Wings salary cap obligations may make pre-deadline deals a difficulty in Motown. While Michigan Live speculates that the likes of Steve Ott, Ales Hemsky and Mike Cammalleri could be enticing to the Wings, Ken Holland has stated that hes less willing to part with some of the Wings young talent to get deals for those types of players done. “We like our kids,” Holland told the site. “I dont know that there [are] players available on the market that are better than the kids we got.” The Wings have gotten good contributions this season from young forwards like Riley Sheahan and Tomas Jurco. Carlos Vela Jersey . Spencer Abbott and Trevor Smith scored third-period goals erasing a 2-1 deficit giving Toronto a late 3-2 lead. Mario Osuna Jersey . - Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II says the NFL has told the team it will not be docked a pick in this years draft for coach Mike Tomlins foray onto the field against Baltimore last November.How can you not write, talk and sing the praises of the dominant defences we witnessed during Week 4 of the 2014 season?Heres a few statistical gems that jumped out from a week where the attention turned from great throws, catches and runs to bone-crushing hits, interceptions and stifling defensive play.A total of nine touchdowns were scored during Week 4, as opposed to an average of just over 18 in the first three weeks of the season. Remember, one of those nine touchdowns was scored by the defence - thats when Odell Willis had a pick-six to open the scoring for the week. That was six minutes and 17 seconds into the first game of the week. From there, only eight offensive touchdowns for the rest of the week.Thank goodness special teams and our kickers were on point for the most part of Week 4. In total, the legs of the CFL were 20 of 23 or 87 per cent on the week, but even that portion of the game was marred by a botched last-minute field goal attempt by Hamilton. Costly!The defences were so strong in Week 4 that they lowered the average total scoring by 17.9 points per game, from 49.7 the first three weeks to 31.8 in Week 4.What is going on and whos causing all these problems for the offences around the league?Crazy fact of the week - Six of the nine teams in the CFL have new defensive coordinators and five of the nine have new offensive coordinators.Typically, defences will start out hot and further ahead of the offences as training camp ends. The thinking here is that offensive play is more about timing, working in unison, and it takes longer to come together than the reaction-based defensive schemes. I say hold on, partner. Thats not what Im seeing these days. What Im watching is more diversified defensive schemes that are every bit as difficult to perfect. Schemes that require as much, if not more, time to master all the necessary subtleties needed in order to be consistently successful.Im seeing defences that are not relying solely on reaction, but that are taking the upper hand and dictating to the offences.This is the classic and constant game of chess that has been played out since the genesis of football. Last week, the defence had the offence on its heels, stymied and confused. They had the offence in protect mode and retreating.Offensively speaking, you cannot play this way and expect to succeed. The challenge is to flip the script and be aggressive and attack. You must put the defence on its heels and in a retreat mode. Offences must be offensive and make defences be defensive! They must dictate to the defence the tempo of the game, impose their will, rhythm and flow as to how the game is going to be played. Easier said than done, yes, bbut especially when you are meshing new systems with young signal callers. Alan Pulido Jersey. This past week, we saw some young quarterbacks on their heels, flustered and with their eyes not right. Thats when the quarterbacks eyes are not on their reads or indicators and going through their progressions. Their eyes are darting all over the place and not down field, but fixated on defenders in their face, closing ground and fast. Theyre feeling pressure when its not there, moving out of a perfectly fine throwing lane or pocket because theyre not locked in. Thats usually about the time when receivers are running free, down field, wide open while the quarterbacks are seeing ghosts, getting happy feet and not able to deliver the ball or make that throw that could stop the insanity and pressure altogether.This week, the defensive pressure, ability to cover and schemes all played a huge part in causing this to happen. The defence dictated and overwhelmingly won Week 4s chess match.The video tells the truth or, as they say, "The eye in the sky does not lie."Veteran Kevin Glenn capitalized on a solid Montreal defence by attacking, staying focused and delivering while under pressure.Ricky Ray had his chances down field. He missed once on a big play himself and on a couple other big play opportunities, he did not get the help needed on the other end.Mike Reilly hung tough in the pocket and found the big play on a busted assignment in the Winnipeg secondary. Miraculously, on several occasions, the tough-as-nails quarterback did his impersonation of Houdini and escaped extreme pressure, piling up 96 yards rushing, making the difference in that ball game.Other than that, Bo-Levi Mitchell, even in victory, was not sharp and missed on several plays. Remember the only offensive touchdown in that contest came on a reverse pass that went bad. Brad "Sinopoli Money" made something out of nothing and scored on a brilliant run for his first-ever CFL touchdown.Henry Burris found a way to win, but, never found the end zone. He should have found the end zone at  least once, but thats another story. Henry kept his poise, under pressure, and delivered a big play in the end when the game was on the line. Torontos defence did everything they could, holding Ottawa to six field goals!

FLORHAM PARK, N. Jaromir Jagr Jersey .J. - Dennis Thurman knows an interception is coming. He can feel it. Its just a matter of when.Four games, no picks and lots of head scratching. The New York Jets are hoping to change all that in San Diego against Philip Rivers and the Chargers.We just need to break the dam, said Thurman, the Jets defensive co-ordinator. We need to get an interception and hold onto it. We need to make a play on the football. Once you start doing those things, they seem to snowball and happen for you more rapidly.Its a peculiar stretch of futility for the New York Jets defence, which leads the NFL with 14 sacks and ranks No. 3 overall in yardage allowed. Its also tops in the league in run defence. Not bad, right? But Rex Ryans Jets are tied with his twin brother Robs New Orleans Saints for the fewest interceptions in the league.Zero.Theyve had a few chances, but they slipped through some players hands. David Harris had one a€” and held onto it a€” against Green Bays Aaron Rodgers, but it was negated by the Jets being called for having 12 men on the field.Its hard to do, Ryan said of the Jets leading the league in sacks despite having no interceptions. Yeah, absolutely its hard to do. Weve had a couple of opportunities at them. It really is hard to explain. And I think weve got to start attacking the football.I think well keep getting pressure on the quarterback, and hopefully good things are coming, he saidUsually, consistent pressure results in hurried quarterbacks, and that will often lead to interceptions.Rivers has thrown just one in 137 attempts through four games this season, so it wont be easy for the Jets to get that snowball rolling in San Diego. The Chargers have also allowed only five sacks.Guys like that, you have to make them uncomfortable, get to him and get your hands in his face, linebacker Calvin Pace said. Hes a guy that likes to step into a lot of throws.The Jets had four sacks of Detroits Matthew Stafford last Sunday, marking three straight games in which they had four or more a€” the first time the defence has done that since 1985.But all three games have been losses, and the defence a€” Ryans bread and butter a€” has failed to consistently come up with big stops in some crucial moments.We are giving up too many big plays, so we have given up some in coverages where you think we have a guy doubled, and we give up an 80-yard touchdown, a 60-yard touchdown, Ryan said. We have to stop doing those things, obviously. When we do that, I believe that now we are going to start becoming a much better defence.At Green Bay, the Jets were up 21-9 with less than two minutes before halftime, but Rodgers led the Packers on a 97-yard touchdown drive, scoring with 8 seconds left. After New York tied it at 24 in the third quarter, Rodgers delivered a knockout blow, an 80-yard TD pass to Jordy Nelson.Against Chicago the following week, New York gave up several long scoring drives.Last Sunday, the Jets allowed a 59-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Ross in the second quarter on a third-and-10 play. With the game still within reach with the Lions up 17-10, Stafford marched them down the field 90 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.Third down is a situation where your great pass rushers, your great cover guys have to (execute), Thurman said. Thats the time where you get interceptions. Thats the time where you get sacks and we just havent executed as well as we need to in those situations.The Jets secondary will get top cornerback Dee Milliner back this weekend after he missed two games with a quadriceps injury. But Ryan and Thurman might stick with Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls as the starters, depending on how the game is going.New York has played a bit more zone coverage in recent weeks, mixing it in with man coverage, which has been the traditional approach Ryans team have taken. But with teams getting big plays through the air against them, the Jets will try anything to get that first interception.Its just being opportunistic, taking a shot here or there, Pace said. But yeah, it is a number that we have to get better.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Michael Matheson Jersey . Patton told The Baltimore Sun that he took an Adderall pill four days before the season finished, trying to improve his short-term focus. "I took one because I was stupid," Patton told The Sun. Alex Petrovic Jersey . The time off didnt slow them down. Tyler Zeller scored a season-high 18 points and grabbed a career-best 15 rebounds, Kyrie Irving added 14 points and the Cavaliers pushed their winning streak to five games Tuesday night with a 114-85 victory over the skidding Philadelphia 76ers.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- David Freese is starting to pick up his run production, which is something the Los Angeles Angels have been waiting half a season to see. Freese hit a two-run double, Matt Shoemaker pitched in and out of trouble for six innings, and the Angels beat the Houston Astros 5-2 Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series. Freese has six RBIs in his last five games, two more than he had in the previous 27 games in which he had an at-bat. "Weve been talking about David for a while, and we need him," said manager Mike Scioscia, who has kept Freese in the bottom third of the batting order since June 17. "Hes a guy that potentially deepens the middle of your lineup. He hasnt gotten off to a good start, and were at the halfway point. "Hopefully hes finding a comfort level. I think the last 30 or so at-bats hes been driving the ball a little bit better." Shoemaker (6-2) allowed two runs, seven hits and three walks, and worked with runners on base in every inning. The right-hander, who began the season in the bullpen, gave up eight runs and 11 hits in four innings on Friday in a loss at Kansas City. He had been 5-0 with a 3.00 ERA in his seven previous starts this season. "It was a successful outing, but a little bit of a struggle," Shoemaker said. "I had to make some big pitches to get out of some jams, and the defence picked me up huge, making some big plays. It was a positive thing to bounce back from that outing to this one." Shoemaker had seven strikeouts against the Astros, giving him 57 through his first 10 big league starts. That broke the franchise record of 56 set by Bo Belinsky in 1962. "He has it in his game, thats for sure," Scioscia said. "If you look at his career in the minor leagues, he has struck out his share of guys. But you never know how a guys stuff is going to play in the major leagues until he gets an opportunity. "Shoe definitely has some out pitches and some pitches that he can get strikeouts with. But the best games hes going to throw are going to be the ones where hes in the zone early with good stuff and changing speeds and maybe getting some easier outs. He had to work hard to get through six innings." Jason Grilli, obtained from Pittsburgh on Friday, pitched a scoreless eighth in his home debut, and Joe Smith worked a hitless ninth for his 10th save. The Angels have won seven straight at home, their longest streak since another seven-game stretch in August 2006. Brett Oberrholtzer (2-7) gave up five runs, nine hits and three walks over 6 1-3 innings in his third start since getting recalled from Triple-A on June 28. Colton Sceviour Jersey. He was 0-6 with a 5.68 ERA in his first seven starts before back-to-back victories over Seattle and Baltimore. After the game, he was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Oberholtzer was bailed out by inning-ending double plays in the second and third innings, after giving up Howie Kendricks RBI single in the first. Mike Trout was doubled off second base in the third after rookie left fielder Enrique Hernandez made a diving catch of Albert Pujols sinking liner, but the Angels scored four runs in the fourth to grab a 5-2 lead. C.J. Cron tied it with an RBI single, and Freese doubled to right-centre, the fourth straight one-out hit. Freese scored on Chris Iannettas sac fly. Houston took a 2-1 lead in the third. Jose Altuve doubled after a leadoff walk to No. 9 hitter Marwin Gonzalez, Jason Castro singled off the glove of first baseman Pujols to drive in the Astros first run, and Altuve scored on a grounder by Springer. Shoemaker retired Dominguez on a double-play grounder after a walk to Singleton. "Its just tough, not scoring runs when you have situations with men on base early in the game where you can jump on a team," designated hitter Chris Carter said. "Were in a little rough patch now, but I think well be better the rest of the series." Altuve, who had three hits, leads the AL in batting (.347) and stolen bases (37). The only players who finished a season atop the league in both categories were Ty Cobb (1909, 1911 and 1917), George Sisler (1922), Snuffy Stirnweiss (1945) and Ichiro Suzuki (2001). "Hes definitely a phenomenal hitter and hes tough to get out, so you have to mess up his timing and make good pitches," Shoemaker said. NOTES: Scioscia earned his 1,281st regular-season victory, tying Whitey Herzog for 34th place on baseballs career list. Scioscia reached the mark in 57 fewer games. ... RHP Josh Fields will be reinstated from the disabled list on Friday to fill Oberholtzers roster spot. ... It was the 44th anniversary of the first no-hitter at the "Big A," thrown by Clyde Wright against Oakland. ...

TSN Baseball Analyst Steve Phillips answers several questions surrounding the game each week. Cristian Bonilla Jersey . This weeks topics include a vote of confidence for the Jays brass, a second life for PED offenders, the lasting effects of chewing tobacco and what the majors can learn from the little leagues.   1) Reports surfaced over the last week that Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos and manager John Gibbons were both expected back for the 2015 season. What does the vote of confidence mean for both and, more importantly, for a team that has twice fallen out of a playoff spot this season? It is good news for the Jays and their fans that ownership has given both Alex Anthopoulos and John Gibbons a vote of confidence that they will return next season. Change is not always the answer. It is oftentimes the easy way out for ownership. They figure they will make a change and the fans will back off of them waiting for some new grand plan or direction. But more often than not, the firing of general managers particularly, set the organization back a number of years. Anthopoulos knows what he is doing. He knows where his teams strengths and weaknesses are. Gibbons is respected by his players and other managers. He is a good baseball man. Sure, neither of them is perfect but they are good men who give an honest days effort and represent the organization well. Ownerships support of these two is also a bit of an admission that the clubs shortcomings are in many ways their bosses fault. The Jays are close. They are much closer to a playoff team than they have been in years. They are starting pitcher or two short of being a true contender. A key trade or two at the deadline might have made the difference this season but Anthopoulos had no budget to make that happen. The Jays are in a window where they have affordable power in their line-up. They wont have it forever. Power costs big money in the free agent market for both bats and pitchers. They cant let this time go to waste. There are certain times in an organizations history that they need to go for it. This is one of those times for the Jays. Ownership has made it clear they believe in Anthopoulos and Gibbons. Now they need to make it clear they believe in the players. 2) Nelson Cruz enters Thursday leading the majors in home runs while Melky Cabrera sits second in the MLB in hits. What do these achievements mean for the once-suspended stars and their value heading into the open market this off-season? Nelson Cruz is having a career year. So is Melky Cabrera. What a difference a year can make. Cruz was suspended from the Rangers this time last year for using PEDs acquired from Biogenesis. Cabrera is coming to the conclusion of the two-year $16 million deal he signed with the Jays after his own 50 game suspension for testing positive for PEDs. Good for them. They have both bounced back from the embarrassment of getting snagged in MLBs Joint Drug Policy. They are taking full advantage of their second chances. Are they clean now? I dont know. I assume they are because they havent had another positive test. But you know what happens when you ass-u-me. So I am not totally willing to say they are clean. The element of doubt that I have will not be shared by every general manager around the game. Some may feel like I do, but as long as there is one who is willing to invest in the numbers they produce they will get all the money in the world. I suspect that both Cruz and Cabrera will get multi-year, multi-million dollar deals. They will be substantially compensated and completely unaffected by their previous wrongdoings. The evidence seems pretty clear that sooner or later if you produce you will get paid. Just look at Jhonny Peraltas contract that he got from the Cardinals last offseason. I am all for second chances. Heaven knows I have gotten them. I am thrilled when people take advantage of them. Maybe I should take some PEDs, turn myself in and then cash in on my own big contract. Sounds like a plan. 3) Curt Schilling has been treated for mouth cancer and attributed his disease to his use of chewing tobacco. MLB prohibits visible use of smokeless tobacco but with Schillings admission and Tony Gwynns death from oral cancer earlier in the year, is it time for the League to take a stronger stand? Every package of smokeless chewing tobacco and advertisement includes one of the following warnings: WARNING: This product can cause mouth cancer. WARNING: This product can cause gum disease and tooth loss. WARNING: This product is not a safe alternative to cigarettes. WARNING: Smokeless tobacco is addictive. Yet Curt Schilling and Tony Gwynn kept chewing. So do dozens of other major league ball players. Major League Baseball rules prohibit teams from providing any tobacco products to players. Many stadiums are nonsmoking facilities. Players cannot have tobacco tins in their uniform pockets or do televised interviews while using smokeless tobacco. Violators are subject to fines. Despite all of these attempts to make it more difficult on players they still have a never-ending supply of smokeless tobacco and continue to use it at a reduced but alarming rate. Smokeless tobacco is banned in the minor leagues. Players, coaches and managers face fines and suspensions if they are caught using it. The reason it is not banned in the major leagues is because the Major League Baseball Players Association is unwilling to agree to it. Players want this to remain a matter of choice. They support education but they refuse to approve an across-the-board ban. There is netting in hockey arenas now behind the goals because a woman died when there wasnt netting. Base coaches wear helmets now in professional ball and in most amateur leagues because a first base coach of the Tulsa Drillers, Scott Coolbaugh, was struck in the head by a liner and died. There are so many things that we know we should do, but it takes a death to make it happen. Pitchers in baseball should wear protective headgear but it wont become mandatory until someone dies. Netting should be extended down the baselines in baseball stadiums to protect the fans from getting hit by line drives. It wont happen unless someone dies from getting hit. We had our tragic death from smokeless tobacco (Gwynn). We had our real scare for ones health (Schilling). Why isnt it enough? The Players Association needs to protect its constituents from themselves. I dont care that tobacco is legal. It kills. The Office of the Commissioner cannot unilaterally ban smokeless tobacco. It has to be negotiated as a topic in collective bargaining. I hope and pray that we dont need to lose more lives to get the players to agree to a complete and total ban. 4) So, this past week five million people tuned in to watch Mone Davis, a thirteen year old girl, pitch for the Pennsylvania team against Las Vegas in the Little League World Series. It was the highest rated baseball game on ESPN since 2007. Thirty-four thousand fans showed up to watch which was 9,000 more than the Phillies had at Citizens Bank Park on the same night. Let that sink in. She is a woman among boys. She is a rock star. Everywhere she went in Williamsport people wanted to see her and get her autograph. In fact someone sold her autograph online for $500. Mone is money. But why? From all accounts she is not only a wonderful athlete but a great kid too. Certainly there is part of the story that is a bit of a side-show: a girl beating boys at their own game. It never happens this way. She is a one-of-a kind. The reason so many people watched though is not exclusively because of the uniqueness of Mone but more because they got to know her. ESPN let us in behind the scenes and gave us a true sense as to who Mone really is as a person? We connected with her and her story. There are some that think the stat I gave you above is an embarrassment to baseball. We should be mortified that it took a little girl to drive ratings for baseball in a way that major leaguers couldnt. Those people think that fans have lost interest in the game and wont watch unless there is a side-show. I disagree. I believe that the Mone Davis story is a story of hope for a young girl but also for the industry. It proved that people are interested in baseball and will watch the games when the players are interesting to them. It reinforces what I have thought all along, that, if baseball markets its players, fans will connect and become interested in the game again. Fans young and old want to know the same things about major leaguers that we learn about little leaguers: Who is your favorite player? What is your favorite meal? What is your favorite hobby? Who would they like to meet? Who is your favorite non-baseball athlete? What is your favorite movie? Baseball has a hole to dig itself out of there is no question. But the last few weeks have provided us a pathway to get there. Football has had players arrested for smoking marijuana and domestic abuse. The NFL has an epidemic of DUIs from owners to players. The door is open for baseball to make up ground with better marketing of players and a few other changes. The best news of the week was that Commissioner-elect Rob Manfred was in Williamsport, PA at the Little League World Series. It was a brilliant move. Baseball needs to get a younger fan base and the guy in charge showed he understands it. There is a lot of hope for the game we love. Pablo Armero Jersey . Ashley Wagner will skate in the womens short program for a U.S. team thats in seventh place. Davis and White won the silver medal at the Vancouver Games and are two-time world champions. Sebastian Perez Jersey . Jim Leyland, in his eighth playoffs, has never had a starting rotation he trusts as much as the grouping of Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander, Anibal Sanchez and Doug Fister.With the news of MLSE reaching out to Brendan Shanahan for a front office job with the Leafs coming on the heels of Trevor Lindens hiring in Vancouver, there appears a clear trend of teams hiring former stars – and preferably alumni – to run their hockey operations. Joe Sakic is running things in Colorado; Steve Yzerman is in charge in Tampa Bay; and Ron Francis, currently the No. 2 in Carolina, is widely expected to one day take over the Hurricanes hockey ops. There are several success stories with this business model, the benchmark perhaps set by former Bruins great Cam Neely who has been President and Alternate Governor of the team since 2010. But it doesnt always work, as some Edmonton Oilers fans would surely argue. Pat Lafontaines short-lived period as Buffalo Sabres Prresident of Hockey Operations serves as a cautionary tale as well. Edwin Valencia Jersey. The move can make sense from a business standpoint. A flashy hire of a former fan favourite can do a lot to curb poor season ticket sales – a rumoured consideration in the Canucks hiring of Linden – although that wont factor into any Leafs decisions. Toronto went down this path before, hiring former Montreal Canadiens great Ken Dryden as President in 1997. He lasted seven years with the Leafs, overseeing some of the most successful Leafs teams in recent memory. Will a similar hire lead to comparable results, or - Leafs fans hope - even better ones? Is hiring a former star player to run hockey operations a good move for a team? Youve heard what weve had to say, now its your turn. As always, its Your! Call. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

KANSAS CITY, Kan. Early Wynn Jersey . -- Sporting Kansas City has acquired 19-year-old Brazilian defender Igor Juliao on loan from Fluminense FC to occupy one of its international roster spots. Juliao joined Fluminenses academy at 8 years old and capped his youth career by leading the clubs under-20 team to back-to-back championships. He travelled to the U.S. for the Dallas Cup last year, his club losing to eventual champion Fulham FC at the Cotton Bowl. Sporting KC manager Peter Vermes said Friday that he first saw Juliao at the Disney Pro Soccer Classic. After scouting him for six days and watching four games, Vermes knew the talented young defender would fit with the MLS Cup champions. Juliao calls the move to Sporting KC "a new challenge for me. I hope to learn a lot from this club and do everything I can to help them win another championship." Bo Jackson Jersey .Leicester won 25-21 in a heated European Rugby Champions Cup group match on Sunday.Toulon said on its website on Wednesday that it decided to open an investigation after Leicester complained about the behaviour of prop Martin Castrogiovanni and fullback Delon Armitage. Melky Cabrera Jersey . Cain departed in the fourth inning of a 10-5 loss to the Pirates on Thursday. X-rays on Cains bruised forearm were negative. He was hit when Sanchez led off the fourth with a groundout.HOYLAKE, England -- Old Tom Morris would barely recognize the British Open these days. Its one thing for golf to evolve from gutta percha to polyurethane, from niblicks to hybrids, from hickory to graphite. Now the British Open is all about LED screens, apps and routers. Yes, there are wireless routers affixed to every grandstand at Royal Liverpool. Leave it to the Royal & Ancient to be on the cutting edge of digital technology among major championships. The British Open is believed to be the first major golf event to offer wireless in every grandstand, allowing spectators with mobile phone and tablets to watch the BBC coverage, track their favourite player through GPS, and get details through up-to-the minute scoring updates. "The experience for our spectators will, I believe, be the best they have ever received," said Peter Unsworth, chairman of the R&As championship committee. "Using their own smartphones and tablets, and our groundbreaking Wi-Fi network which is available in every grandstand, they will be able to enjoy live BBC television and radio coverage, live scoring and get news and updates without leaving their seat. "The information available to our spectators has never been so readily available." And to think this major only three years ago banned cellphones from the golf course. Now theyre telling spectators theyre missing out if they dont have them. The R&A last year installed wireless signals as an experiment, with the source of streaming capabilities coming from London. It was so pleased with the result that it now has installed its own fiber optic network at most of the links courses where it holds The Open, starting with Hoylake. Malcolm Booth, the R&As communications director, said the signal is strong enough for as many as 20,000 fans to stream video at the same time. A popular theme at the R&A over the last two decades has been finding a balance between tradition and technology. R&A chief executive Peter Dawson always thought that would involve only equipment. Now he is trying to grasp a world of live streaming and second-screen channels. "What it will be 10 years from now I can scarcely imagine," Dawson said. Traditions die hard at the oldest golf championship in the world, which dates to 1860. Tom Watson, a five-time champion who played his firstt British Open before Tiger Woods was even born, couldnt help notice some of the changes during a practice round Monday. Adam Dunn Jersey. . "What happened to the yellow scoreboards?" he said. For starters, the scoreboards changed from yellow to green years ago, but point taken. For the longest time, there was a manual scoreboard behind each green that showed the cumulative score of the players on that hole, and the scores of the group next to play. Those are gone, replaced by LED screens that now give scores, news updates on the championship, and even a rules quiz during the practice rounds. "Theyre in the modern age," Watson said. Dawson said former championship committee chairman Jim McArthur was a strong advocate for getting up to speed with digital technology, and it then was turned over to Booth and the communications department. Booth said it wasnt a hard sell to the Royal & Ancient, though "there was a lot of explaining to do." "There was a need to explain how this could impact on the experience for spectators," he said. "Having a radio at the Open is not new. People have been doing it for decades. Having a television picture on a hand-held device has been pretty common at big events like the PGA Championship and Ryder Cup. They were aware of these devices. What they werent sure about was how easy it was to take that technology and have it on each persons phones." Oddly enough, it was at Royal Liverpool in 2006 when spectators took so many pictures with their phones that mobile devices were banned the following year. The R&A finally relented on that strict policy in 2012 at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. Now it has Wi-Fi networks, routers, live streaming, geofencing. Is there anything still ancient about the Royal & Ancient? "Me," Dawson said with a smile. He retires next year after 16 years as chief executive, the last few years filled with technology changes he never imagined. He still likes the balance between old and new. The Open still is played on the same turf where Old Tom Morris and Willie Park Sr. vied for championships. The claret jug has been passed around for 86 years. "But I think in the modern era," Dawson said, "the way that people now embrace this technology is something that golf also has to embrace." Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
