It was just enough to help lift Golden State to a 102-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night.TORONTO -- Cory Joseph has worn a lot of uniforms this year. There was his San Antonio Spurs uniform for the regular season. Then there was the Austin Toros uniform that came after he called Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich to suggest going down to the D-League affiliate to get some more game experience. Then came San Antonios uniform with the NBA Finals patch on it when the team played and ultimately lost to the Miami Heat in June. Now there is the white and red Canada uniform hell wear when representing his country in the upcoming FIBA Americas. "This year has definitely been a roller coaster," Joseph said. "Its been fun. Ive gotten to meet a lot of people, learn a lot of things from different angles. Ive been a sponge, soaking it all up. Just trying to improve my game." Drafted with the 29th pick by the Spurs in 2011, Joseph has worked his way into the rotation with a lot of after-hours work, a commitment to defence and a willingness to recognize when he needed more in-game experience. When he wasnt getting the time needed to develop his skills, Joseph suggested a trip to the D-League where he would be able to play and iron out the kinks in his game. While many players look at a D-League assignment as a demotion, Joseph saw it as an opportunity to hone his craft and was grateful for it. "I didnt know it was going to get this much publicity, you know?" Joseph said. "Every reporter probably asked me that. Every single one asked me about the decision I made. At the time I didnt know it would be this big." Joseph added he didnt think the Spurs would forget about him. "They watch, they want me to learn," said the Pickering, Ont. "It was an investment. I was just working. I was working and when I got my opportunity, whenever it was, that year, the next year, Id be able to capitalize and feel like I was ready." To go from the D-League affiliate to playing meaningful minutes in the NBA Finals is quite the trip. Luckily for the Spurs, Joseph is an unflappable 21-year-old. Quick to point out that "everybody remembers the winner" when talking about the Finals appearance, Joseph said he cant wait to experience the Finals again. Nike Air Max Thea Nederland. "Playing on the biggest stage in basketball, in the world, nobody could ask for more," he said. "Obviously we were excited, happy, anxious, dialled in, focused, all of the emotions you could possibly think of, we were feeling. I mean, at the end, all of them. Mad, sad, all of it at once." Despite the strong finish to his sophomore season, Joseph knows there is plenty of room for improvement in his game and said he is honing in on his shooting and leadership skills this summer. While Joseph has been involved with the Canadian basketball program since 2008, he couldnt help but smile when talking about what he perceives to be a renewed interest in the sport north of the border. "Kids realize they have different options now and they realize that it can actually happen," Joseph said. "Weve always had talented people, but I think Tristan (Thompson) and I being the first guys to get drafted in the first round together that opened some eyes." When Anthony Bennett made history as the first Canadian to be drafted No. 1 in June, Joseph was in front of the television. "To see him go first, I was excited," he said. "Knowing Anthony, knowing his family, hes got a good family, I was excited for them. Knowing the pressure that goes with it, the pressure and responsibilities, hes up for it. Hes ready. Hell work hard and when the time comes, hell be ready to play." Head coach Jay Triano is hoping the same will be said about his team after they fly to Florida on Friday for four more days of practice before travelling to Puerto Rico for the Tuto Marchand Continental Cup next week. After the team finishes in Puerto Rico, the real test will begin when they gets to Venezuela for the FIBA Americas from Aug. 30 to Sept. 11.

                                      Test No. Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap . 1 - Debut century at Nagpur One hundred and two cricketers have made a century on Test debut, including ten Englishmen since the Second World War. But few have given such definitive proof of their poise and purpose as Cook, Englands emergency replacement on the tour of India in 2005-06. After Marcus Trescothicks breakdown on the eve of the first Test, and at the age of 21 and with no acclimatisation whatsoever, Cook brushed off the effects of 24-hour, multi-transfer, journey from Antigua to Nagpur to make 60 and 104 not out. All told, he batted for nine and a half hours in the match against an India attack boasting two of their greatest spinners in Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.Test No. 6 - Maiden home Test hundred Trescothicks return in the summer of 2006 forced Cook to bed in at No. 3 in the short term, but he scarcely missed a beat in his first full season as an England batsman. At Lords in May, he missed out on his second Test century when he fell for 89 against Sri Lanka. But two months later, he made no mistake at the same venue, etching his name on the honours board for the first of what is now four occasions and counting. For good measure, he followed up with his third century, 127, in the next match at Old Trafford.Test No. 12 - First Ashes hundred If India had been a steep learning curve, then it was nothing compared to the winter of 2006-07, when Cook was thrust into the front line to withstand Australias Ashes vengeance mission. Restored to the top of the order, he encountered Glenn McGrath and Shane Warne still smarting from the events of 2005, and hell-bent on setting the record straight before waltzing into retirement. Unsurprisingly, he struggled, particularly outside off stump where his judgment was challenged mercilessly by the metronomic brutality of McGrath and Stuart Clark. But, with the Ashes all but surrendered as England chased 557 in the second innings at Perth, Cook knuckled down on the eve of his 22nd birthday to make 116 from 290 balls. It couldnt save the day in the short term, but it laid a notable marker for events further down the line…Test No. 24 - Face-saving hundred in Galle Things would get worse before they got much better for Englands chastened cricketers. A home series loss against India was swiftly followed by a capitulation in Sri Lanka where, with the series level going into the third Test at Galle, they collapsed to 81 all out in reply to the home sides 499, and inevitable defeat. Nevertheless, Cooks bloodymindedness came bubbling to the fore in the follow-on, as he dug in against Muttiah Muralitharan to make a six-and-a-half hour 118. It wasnt enough to impress certain members of Englands travelling support, who draped a banner over the walls of the historic Galle Fort to declare England: Hang Your Heads in Shame. But Cook, at least, was able to fly home to celebrate his 23rd birthday with his own held high.Test Nos. 25-36 - The summer of sixties By the end of 2008, it was clear that Cook was a prodigy with purpose. In New Zealand in March he had become the youngest England batsman to reach 2000 Test runs (at the age of 23 years and two months) but for the rest of that year he seemed to hit something of a plateau - in the entire calendar year, he made eight fifties in 21 innings (an impressive effort), but had been unable to convert any of them to three figures. With scores of 60, 61, 60, 60, 76, 67, 52 and 50, it was time to turn to his mentor Graham Gooch, with whom he began working on the technical changes that he believed he needed to take his game to the next level.Test No. 43 - Wisden Trophy regained Cook broke his centuries drought with an eighth Test hundred against West Indies in Bridgetown, but given that the match had featured 1349 runs across its first two innings, including 291 for Ramnaresh Sarwan, his second-innings game-killer wasnt much to write home about. Of greater significance, however, was his career-best 160 at Chester-le-Street two months later. After Englands shock surrendering of the Wisden Trophy in the Caribbean, courtesy of their 51 all out in the first Test at Sabina Park, Cooks innings set up a pummelling innings win, and a 2-0 series victory, against a dispirited opposition.Test No. 50 - Innings win in Durban Cook played a low-key role in Englands home Ashes win - his most significant contribution was a first-day 95 in the second Test when, in harness with Andrew Strauss, he took full toll of Mitchell Johnsons stage fright to set up Englands first win against Australia at Lords for 75 years. But in Durban later that year, he was back to his obdurate best. Fresh from celebrating his 25th birthday, Cook dropped anchor with 118 from 263 balls, setting the stage for the coming of age of his team-mate, Ian Bell. England declared on 574 for 9, before routing South Africa for 133 in their second innings.Test No. 53 - Captains best 173 If there was any doubt that Cook was Englands anointed man, then the tour of Bangladesh in 2010 dispelled it once and for all. With Strauss taking a sabbatical ahead of Englands Ashes defence in Australia, Cook was tasked with leading England in his absence, on a potentially awkward campaign against an ever-improving opposition. He set the tone with a brace of 60s in the three-match ODI series (he was recalled as captain for that leg as well…) then laid down his marker by milking Bangladeshs spin-dominant attack for 173 in the first Test in Chittagong. A week later, he had wrapped up a clean sweep in all five internationals by anchoring Englands run-chase in Dhaka with 109 not out.Test No. 59 - Last-chance saloon at The Oval Cook, famously, has missed just one Test match in his entire career, and none for more than a decade since a stomach bug denied him a third cap on his maiden tour of India in 2006. But that record would surely have been interrupted but for this show of defiance against Pakistan at The Oval in 2010. All summer long, Cook had been hounded by the relentless pace, movement and accuracy of Mohammads Amir and Asif, and was braced for the drop after making 6 in the first innings of the third Test. But then he decided to throw caution to the wind, and cast aside the tinkerings that had left him so vulnerable outside off stump. I wasnt going to die wondering, he said afterwards.Tests No. 61, 62 and 65 - 517 for 1 and all that In the build-up to a seismic Ashes tussle in the winter of 2010-11, Australias focus had been entirely on one man. Kevin Pietersen was front and centre of their strategies as they sought to avenge Englands victory in the 2009 campaign; but hardly a breath of interest had been wasted on an opening batsman who, up to that point, had scored fewer than 500 runs in ten Ashes Tests, at a distinctly mediocre average of 26.21. But Cook made it his business to punish Australias oversight, racking up 766 runs in a 3-1 series triumph, including three vast hundreds. The biggest of the lot also doubles as his defining performance - an invincible innings of 235 not out in the cavernous hostility of the Gabba that turned the momentum of the series on its head. By the time he fell for 148 in the second Test at Adelaide, Cook had batted for 1053 minutes and 383 runs between dismissals, and an entire nation was sick to the teeth of his implacable leave outside off stump.Test No. 71 - The Edgbaston grand-daddy Notwithstanding his heroics Down Under, Cook was soon back to the grind of an English pre-season, out on dawn runs in the woods in Chelmsford, carrying a rucksack of bricks and being pursued by Gooch on a bicycle. The message from his mentor was simple but effective: when you are in the form of your life, theres even more reason to put in the extra groundwork. And his efforts would bear fruit in the third Test of Englands crushing home series win over India. Cooks returns for the rest of the summer were relatively modest, but he made his indelible mark with a 12-and-a-half hour 294 at Edgbaston, his highest Test score. He faltered, finally, in sight of what would have been Englands first triple-century since Gooch in 1990, but in making his innings a grand-daddy, he had lived another of the great mans mantras to the max. Theres a tinge of disappointment, Cook admitted, but if Im being realistic, Im absolutely thrilled.Tests No. 84, 85 and 86 - The jewel in the crown Cook may never receive more acclaim than for his performance in the 2010-11 Ashes, but his efforts in India two years later were surely his finest hour. Hed inherited a divided team following the retirement of Andrew Strauss in the summer, and having fought for the rehabilitation of Pietersen following the text-gate scandal, the opening exchanges of the first Test at Ahmedabad were ominous in the extreme. England slumped to 191 all out in reply to Indias 521 for 8 declared - Cook himself was sixth man out for 41, but thereafter he made it his mission to coax a performance from his team, come what may. His nine-and-a-half hour 176 in the follow-on wasnt enough to prevent a nine-wicket defeat, but it transformed the horizons for his side. His subsequent first-innings scores of 122 at Mumbai and 190 at Kolkata frogmarched England into an astonishing 2-1 series win - aided and abetted, of course, by world-class support from the spin pairing Graeme Swann and Monty Panesar, and inevitably, that man Pietersen.Test No. 100 - Ashes humiliation At The Oval in August 2013, Cook experienced one of the proudest moments of his career, as he led his England team to their fourth Ashes victory in five series, a 3-0 triumph that hindsight now confirms looked more emphatic than it actually was. Four months later, those scenes of jubilation must have felt like a figment of his imagination, as Australia tore back the urn with a savagery that surpassed even the trauma of 2006-07. Cooks personal nadir came in the third Test at Perth, the scene of Australias series-seizing win. In the first innings he battled through his own lack of form to make 72, his highest score for eight Tests. In the second, however, and chasing a forlorn 504 for victory, he received surely the best ball of his career - a sneering, swinging, seaming snorter from Ryan Harris that curled in, then zipped away to trim his off bail and send him on his way for a first-ball duck.Test No. 107 - Southampton sympathy There has surely never been a post-mortem to rival it. The fetid fallout from Englands Ashes whitewash contaminated every facet of the England team - not least the crassness of Pietersens sacking, which heaped cruel and unwarranted pressure on Cook, a consummate team man who had been conditioned throughout his career never to take a backwards step, and was damned if he was going to start now, even in the midst of the most barren spell of form imaginable. By the start of the third Test against India, he had gone 14 months without a century, and when his first ball of the match, from Bhuveshwar Kumar, was edged inches short of slip, followed soon after by being dropped on 15, the entire crowd feared the worst. And yet he clung to his wicket for dear life and when, by lunch, he had creaked his way to 48 not out, the crowd rose as one in acclaim. He fell eventually for 95, an apt reflection of how even his best efforts were suddenly falling short.Test No. 112 - A century at last Englands tour of the Caribbean in the spring of 2015 existed in a curious twilight zone, sandwiched between their humiliation in the World Cup (in which Cook played no part, having been dropped from the one-day squad at the eleventh hour) and the termination of Peter Moores ill-fated second coming. But Cook was grateful for the contests nonetheless, as he finally hauled a hulking great monkey off his back, and racked up the 26th Test century of his career, and his first for nearly two years. Test No. 120 - A whopper in Abu Dhabi Cooks record in Asia surpasses that of many home-grown batsman - eight centuries in 21 Tests to date, at a towering average of 60.86. And the heftiest of the lot came in the opening exchanges of Englands tour of the UAE in 2015-16, from a position of familiar peril. Pakistan had spent the first two days of the series racking up the small matter of 523 for 8 declared, with Shoaib Malik chipping in with a career-best 245. Cook, however, retorted with a 14-hour 263 - an innings so stultifyingly brilliant that it all but stole the contest. Pakistan imploded second-time around, leaving England a teasing chase of 99 in an hours worth of daylight. They were halted at 74 for 4 after 11 overs, with Cook banished to No.7 to allow his flightier colleagues to have a slog.Test No. 128 - 10,000 Test runs At 3.15pm on the fourth and final afternoon of the third Test against Sri Lanka at Chester-le-Street, Cook nudged Nuwan Pradeep off his pads with that familiar shovelling followthrough, all the way to the midwicket rope to become the first England batsman to reach 10,000 Test runs. He had kept his audience waiting for the moment - he had been within striking distance of five figures for the best part of five months - but the flamboyant gesture has never been his style. You need something tucked away to drive you to get up go running in the morning or bat in the nets with Goochy, he said. I am still hungry to achieve stuff.

Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said. DETROIT -- It did not take long for Mike Everitt to become persona non grata at Comerica Park on Saturday night.The plate umpire issued four ejections to the Tigers during the teams 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels, leaving players and their manager perplexed and a belligerent Detroit crowd in an uproar.After the loss, which snapped a five-game winning streak for Detroit, Tigers right fielder J.D. Martinez was still trying to make sense of his first career ejection -- one that came, he felt, after a fairly innocuous comment in the sixth inning.I dont know, man, he had a short leash today, I guess. I just told him hes having a bad day. Honestly, thats what I said. Youre having a bad day today, huh Mike? Martinez recalled.Martinez said that Everitt asked him to repeat what he said; after he complied with the request, he was tossed. The mild-mannered 28-year-old outfielder almost didnt believe it.I was shocked, Martinez said. I really was. Ive never been ejected in a game. Ive always treated the umpires with respect. Ive never disrespected one. By me saying that youre bad today, I dont feel like thats really an insult. I told him afterward, I was like, Everyone has bad days, Mike. I have bad days. Everyone has bad days. The least you could do is just man up to it.Martinez was the last of four ejections on the night -- which began with designated hitter Victor Martinez being tossed in the bottom of the third inning for arguing balls and strikes.Both Cameron Maybin and Miguel Cabrera were punched out in the bottom of the third by Angels left-hander Brett Oberholtzer -- Maybin went down swinging and Cabrera looking -- before Victor Martinez expressed his displeasure on a strike call from Everitt.Martinez exchanged words with Everitt, placing his hands behind his back, presumably to take a nonaggressive stance while arguing his case, but the theatrics only intensified from there.Martinez grew enraged during the heated exchange with Everitt, prompting Tigers manager?Brad Ausmus and second-base umpire Tim Timmons to intervene. Ausmus had to practically drag Martinez back to the duugout after the ejection, but the 37-year-old veteran continued to yell in Everitts direction even after leaving the field.

PHOENIX -- Jonathon Niese, acquired from the Pittsburgh Pirates at the trade deadline, will make his first start for the Mets this season and first start overall since July 10. Patriots Jerseys 2019 . Niese (8-6, 5.20 ERA) spent the first eight years of his career in New York, posting a 61-61 record before he was traded to Pittsburgh for Neil Walker.Niese has been working through some discomfort in his left knee since having his knee drained back in Pittsburgh but Mets manager Terry Collins said the move to the rotation might help.We just think that if we start him he wont have to deal with the wear-and-tear of getting up and down, Collins said Saturday when announcing Nieses return to the rotation, In between starts that knee will have a chance to recover.Niese is taking the turn previously held down by Logan Verrett, who was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas after consecutive rough outings.Similarly, Arizona starter Zach Godley is returning to the Diamondbacks rotation to take the place of struggling left-hander Patrick Corbin.Godley (3-2, 5.24) made five starts in July and August before moving to the bullpen. During his last three relief outings, he has held hitters to a .174 average (4 for 23) and struck out four.We dont want them to take their lumps to the point where were out of a game, Arizona manager Chip Hale said of his young staff. But you have to let them learn and try to make adjustments.The Mets offense made an appearance Tuesday night, knocking out 12 hits, including a pair of home runs and six extra-base hits as New York split the first two games of their current seven-game road trip.Every time I look up they (the Diamondbacks) hit a double, Collins said. Its nice that we hit some doubles for a change. The offense came around tonight.T.J. Rivera, who earned the start when Neil Walker was scratched with back tightness, went 4-for-4 to double his career hit total.One of the things they told me is he barrels the ball, Collins said. He gets the barrel on it.The Diamondbacks got an immediate boost from outfielder Mitch Haniger, who doubled, tripled and drove in three runs in his major league debut Tuesday. Haniger steps into an outfield that has struggled both with injuries and ineffectiveness outside the 23 home runs of Yasmany Tomas.Every swing he took was right on it, Hale said of Haniger, who has 24 homers in 119 games at Double- and Triple-A this season. He was just exactly as advertised by (Triple-A Reno manager) Phil Nevin and everybody in the minor leagues. He really knows how to play the game. Im excited to see him play.Arizona also has flourished on the bases against the Mets. The Diamondbacks stole four bases on Tuesday and have 19 steals against New York this season, one shy of matching the franchise record for most stolen bases against an opponent in a single season.

                                      Test No. Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap . 1 - Debut century at Nagpur One hundred and two cricketers have made a century on Test debut, including ten Englishmen since the Second World War. But few have given such definitive proof of their poise and purpose as Cook, Englands emergency replacement on the tour of India in 2005-06. After Marcus Trescothicks breakdown on the eve of the first Test, and at the age of 21 and with no acclimatisation whatsoever, Cook brushed off the effects of 24-hour, multi-transfer, journey from Antigua to Nagpur to make 60 and 104 not out. All told, he batted for nine and a half hours in the match against an India attack boasting two of their greatest spinners in Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.Test No. 6 - Maiden home Test hundred Trescothicks return in the summer of 2006 forced Cook to bed in at No. 3 in the short term, but he scarcely missed a beat in his first full season as an England batsman. At Lords in May, he missed out on his second Test century when he fell for 89 against Sri Lanka. But two months later, he made no mistake at the same venue, etching his name on the honours board for the first of what is now four occasions and counting. For good measure, he followed up with his third century, 127, in the next match at Old Trafford.Test No. 12 - First Ashes hundred If India had been a steep learning curve, then it was nothing compared to the winter of 2006-07, when Cook was thrust into the front line to withstand Australias Ashes vengeance mission. Restored to the top of the order, he encountered Glenn McGrath and Shane Warne still smarting from the events of 2005, and hell-bent on setting the record straight before waltzing into retirement. Unsurprisingly, he struggled, particularly outside off stump where his judgment was challenged mercilessly by the metronomic brutality of McGrath and Stuart Clark. But, with the Ashes all but surrendered as England chased 557 in the second innings at Perth, Cook knuckled down on the eve of his 22nd birthday to make 116 from 290 balls. It couldnt save the day in the short term, but it laid a notable marker for events further down the line…Test No. 24 - Face-saving hundred in Galle Things would get worse before they got much better for Englands chastened cricketers. A home series loss against India was swiftly followed by a capitulation in Sri Lanka where, with the series level going into the third Test at Galle, they collapsed to 81 all out in reply to the home sides 499, and inevitable defeat. Nevertheless, Cooks bloodymindedness came bubbling to the fore in the follow-on, as he dug in against Muttiah Muralitharan to make a six-and-a-half hour 118. It wasnt enough to impress certain members of Englands travelling support, who draped a banner over the walls of the historic Galle Fort to declare England: Hang Your Heads in Shame. But Cook, at least, was able to fly home to celebrate his 23rd birthday with his own held high.Test Nos. 25-36 - The summer of sixties By the end of 2008, it was clear that Cook was a prodigy with purpose. In New Zealand in March he had become the youngest England batsman to reach 2000 Test runs (at the age of 23 years and two months) but for the rest of that year he seemed to hit something of a plateau - in the entire calendar year, he made eight fifties in 21 innings (an impressive effort), but had been unable to convert any of them to three figures. With scores of 60, 61, 60, 60, 76, 67, 52 and 50, it was time to turn to his mentor Graham Gooch, with whom he began working on the technical changes that he believed he needed to take his game to the next level.Test No. 43 - Wisden Trophy regained Cook broke his centuries drought with an eighth Test hundred against West Indies in Bridgetown, but given that the match had featured 1349 runs across its first two innings, including 291 for Ramnaresh Sarwan, his second-innings game-killer wasnt much to write home about. Of greater significance, however, was his career-best 160 at Chester-le-Street two months later. After Englands shock surrendering of the Wisden Trophy in the Caribbean, courtesy of their 51 all out in the first Test at Sabina Park, Cooks innings set up a pummelling innings win, and a 2-0 series victory, against a dispirited opposition.Test No. 50 - Innings win in Durban Cook played a low-key role in Englands home Ashes win - his most significant contribution was a first-day 95 in the second Test when, in harness with Andrew Strauss, he took full toll of Mitchell Johnsons stage fright to set up Englands first win against Australia at Lords for 75 years. But in Durban later that year, he was back to his obdurate best. Fresh from celebrating his 25th birthday, Cook dropped anchor with 118 from 263 balls, setting the stage for the coming of age of his team-mate, Ian Bell. England declared on 574 for 9, before routing South Africa for 133 in their second innings.Test No. 53 - Captains best 173 If there was any doubt that Cook was Englands anointed man, then the tour of Bangladesh in 2010 dispelled it once and for all. With Strauss taking a sabbatical ahead of Englands Ashes defence in Australia, Cook was tasked with leading England in his absence, on a potentially awkward campaign against an ever-improving opposition. He set the tone with a brace of 60s in the three-match ODI series (he was recalled as captain for that leg as well…) then laid down his marker by milking Bangladeshs spin-dominant attack for 173 in the first Test in Chittagong. A week later, he had wrapped up a clean sweep in all five internationals by anchoring Englands run-chase in Dhaka with 109 not out.Test No. 59 - Last-chance saloon at The Oval Cook, famously, has missed just one Test match in his entire career, and none for more than a decade since a stomach bug denied him a third cap on his maiden tour of India in 2006. But that record would surely have been interrupted but for this show of defiance against Pakistan at The Oval in 2010. All summer long, Cook had been hounded by the relentless pace, movement and accuracy of Mohammads Amir and Asif, and was braced for the drop after making 6 in the first innings of the third Test. But then he decided to throw caution to the wind, and cast aside the tinkerings that had left him so vulnerable outside off stump. I wasnt going to die wondering, he said afterwards.Tests No. 61, 62 and 65 - 517 for 1 and all that In the build-up to a seismic Ashes tussle in the winter of 2010-11, Australias focus had been entirely on one man. Kevin Pietersen was front and centre of their strategies as they sought to avenge Englands victory in the 2009 campaign; but hardly a breath of interest had been wasted on an opening batsman who, up to that point, had scored fewer than 500 runs in ten Ashes Tests, at a distinctly mediocre average of 26.21. But Cook made it his business to punish Australias oversight, racking up 766 runs in a 3-1 series triumph, including three vast hundreds. The biggest of the lot also doubles as his defining performance - an invincible innings of 235 not out in the cavernous hostility of the Gabba that turned the momentum of the series on its head. By the time he fell for 148 in the second Test at Adelaide, Cook had batted for 1053 minutes and 383 runs between dismissals, and an entire nation was sick to the teeth of his implacable leave outside off stump.Test No. 71 - The Edgbaston grand-daddy Notwithstanding his heroics Down Under, Cook was soon back to the grind of an English pre-season, out on dawn runs in the woods in Chelmsford, carrying a rucksack of bricks and being pursued by Gooch on a bicycle. The message from his mentor was simple but effective: when you are in the form of your life, theres even more reason to put in the extra groundwork. And his efforts would bear fruit in the third Test of Englands crushing home series win over India. Cooks returns for the rest of the summer were relatively modest, but he made his indelible mark with a 12-and-a-half hour 294 at Edgbaston, his highest Test score. He faltered, finally, in sight of what would have been Englands first triple-century since Gooch in 1990, but in making his innings a grand-daddy, he had lived another of the great mans mantras to the max. Theres a tinge of disappointment, Cook admitted, but if Im being realistic, Im absolutely thrilled.Tests No. 84, 85 and 86 - The jewel in the crown Cook may never receive more acclaim than for his performance in the 2010-11 Ashes, but his efforts in India two years later were surely his finest hour. Hed inherited a divided team following the retirement of Andrew Strauss in the summer, and having fought for the rehabilitation of Pietersen following the text-gate scandal, the opening exchanges of the first Test at Ahmedabad were ominous in the extreme. England slumped to 191 all out in reply to Indias 521 for 8 declared - Cook himself was sixth man out for 41, but thereafter he made it his mission to coax a performance from his team, come what may. His nine-and-a-half hour 176 in the follow-on wasnt enough to prevent a nine-wicket defeat, but it transformed the horizons for his side. His subsequent first-innings scores of 122 at Mumbai and 190 at Kolkata frogmarched England into an astonishing 2-1 series win - aided and abetted, of course, by world-class support from the spin pairing Graeme Swann and Monty Panesar, and inevitably, that man Pietersen.Test No. 100 - Ashes humiliation At The Oval in August 2013, Cook experienced one of the proudest moments of his career, as he led his England team to their fourth Ashes victory in five series, a 3-0 triumph that hindsight now confirms looked more emphatic than it actually was. Four months later, those scenes of jubilation must have felt like a figment of his imagination, as Australia tore back the urn with a savagery that surpassed even the trauma of 2006-07. Cooks personal nadir came in the third Test at Perth, the scene of Australias series-seizing win. In the first innings he battled through his own lack of form to make 72, his highest score for eight Tests. In the second, however, and chasing a forlorn 504 for victory, he received surely the best ball of his career - a sneering, swinging, seaming snorter from Ryan Harris that curled in, then zipped away to trim his off bail and send him on his way for a first-ball duck.Test No. 107 - Southampton sympathy There has surely never been a post-mortem to rival it. The fetid fallout from Englands Ashes whitewash contaminated every facet of the England team - not least the crassness of Pietersens sacking, which heaped cruel and unwarranted pressure on Cook, a consummate team man who had been conditioned throughout his career never to take a backwards step, and was damned if he was going to start now, even in the midst of the most barren spell of form imaginable. By the start of the third Test against India, he had gone 14 months without a century, and when his first ball of the match, from Bhuveshwar Kumar, was edged inches short of slip, followed soon after by being dropped on 15, the entire crowd feared the worst. And yet he clung to his wicket for dear life and when, by lunch, he had creaked his way to 48 not out, the crowd rose as one in acclaim. He fell eventually for 95, an apt reflection of how even his best efforts were suddenly falling short.Test No. 112 - A century at last Englands tour of the Caribbean in the spring of 2015 existed in a curious twilight zone, sandwiched between their humiliation in the World Cup (in which Cook played no part, having been dropped from the one-day squad at the eleventh hour) and the termination of Peter Moores ill-fated second coming. But Cook was grateful for the contests nonetheless, as he finally hauled a hulking great monkey off his back, and racked up the 26th Test century of his career, and his first for nearly two years. Test No. 120 - A whopper in Abu Dhabi Cooks record in Asia surpasses that of many home-grown batsman - eight centuries in 21 Tests to date, at a towering average of 60.86. And the heftiest of the lot came in the opening exchanges of Englands tour of the UAE in 2015-16, from a position of familiar peril. Pakistan had spent the first two days of the series racking up the small matter of 523 for 8 declared, with Shoaib Malik chipping in with a career-best 245. Cook, however, retorted with a 14-hour 263 - an innings so stultifyingly brilliant that it all but stole the contest. Pakistan imploded second-time around, leaving England a teasing chase of 99 in an hours worth of daylight. They were halted at 74 for 4 after 11 overs, with Cook banished to No.7 to allow his flightier colleagues to have a slog.Test No. 128 - 10,000 Test runs At 3.15pm on the fourth and final afternoon of the third Test against Sri Lanka at Chester-le-Street, Cook nudged Nuwan Pradeep off his pads with that familiar shovelling followthrough, all the way to the midwicket rope to become the first England batsman to reach 10,000 Test runs. He had kept his audience waiting for the moment - he had been within striking distance of five figures for the best part of five months - but the flamboyant gesture has never been his style. You need something tucked away to drive you to get up go running in the morning or bat in the nets with Goochy, he said. I am still hungry to achieve stuff.

DETROIT -- It did not take long for Mike Everitt to become persona non grata at Comerica Park on Saturday night.The plate umpire issued four ejections to the Tigers during the teams 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels, leaving players and their manager perplexed and a belligerent Detroit crowd in an uproar.After the loss, which snapped a five-game winning streak for Detroit, Tigers right fielder J.D. Martinez was still trying to make sense of his first career ejection -- one that came, he felt, after a fairly innocuous comment in the sixth inning.I dont know, man, he had a short leash today, I guess. I just told him hes having a bad day. Honestly, thats what I said. Youre having a bad day today, huh Mike? Martinez recalled.Martinez said that Everitt asked him to repeat what he said; after he complied with the request, he was tossed. The mild-mannered 28-year-old outfielder almost didnt believe it.I was shocked, Martinez said. I really was. Ive never been ejected in a game. Ive always treated the umpires with respect. Ive never disrespected one. By me saying that youre bad today, I dont feel like thats really an insult. I told him afterward, I was like, Everyone has bad days, Mike. I have bad days. Everyone has bad days. The least you could do is just man up to it.Martinez was the last of four ejections on the night -- which began with designated hitter Victor Martinez being tossed in the bottom of the third inning for arguing balls and strikes.Both Cameron Maybin and Miguel Cabrera were punched out in the bottom of the third by Angels left-hander Brett Oberholtzer -- Maybin went down swinging and Cabrera looking -- before Victor Martinez expressed his displeasure on a strike call from Everitt.Martinez exchanged words with Everitt, placing his hands behind his back, presumably to take a nonaggressive stance while arguing his case, but the theatrics only intensified from there.Martinez grew enraged during the heated exchange with Everitt, prompting Tigers manager?Brad Ausmus and second-base umpire Tim Timmons to intervene. Ausmus had to practically drag Martinez back to the duugout after the ejection, but the 37-year-old veteran continued to yell in Everitts direction even after leaving the field.

HOUSTON -- By the time D. Cheap Air Max 90 Essential .J. Reader was 10 years old, he already had the body type he has today. And, he realized that if he kept playing football, his place would be on the defensive line.It was then that Reader discovered a rookie nose tackle playing for the New England Patriots: Vince Wilfork .Reader was drafted by the Houston Texans 12 years later and was thrilled at the opportunity to learn from the man who he began watching all those years ago.He was the best nose tackle in the league, Reader said. I was kind of chunky when I was a kid, so I knew I was going to be playing the D-line somewhere, so I just watched the best. Watched him all the time.Wilfork, now 35 and in his 13th NFL season, shook his head and laughed when told that Reader had been a fan of his since he was a child. The veteran said Reader never acted star-struck around him despite looking up to him for years before the pair met.No, he hasnt. He kept that to himself, Wilfork said. (Man) that makes me sound old ... (but) its a mutual respect. Its good to feel like that. Its even better to give knowledge to the younger players, especially somebody thats in my position that I can actually really mentor because Ive played it. Ive done it.This season, Reader has blossomed under the tutelage of Wilfork and defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel. His natural talent was clear when the Texans selected him in the fifth round of this years draft after a career at Clemson where he played in 46 games and had 145 career tackles. But it was also evident that the 6-foot-3, 335-pound Reader had a lot to learn when he first arrived in Houston.These young guys when they come in, they dont understand how the game is played or how to play the game, Crennel said. I think over this season, hes learned his abilities and how he can use his abilities in the game. I think hes playing better as a result of it. Hes understanding the fits, what he can get done, when to come off the block and those kind of things. Hes better as a result of it.After studying Wilfork for so long from afar, Reader wanted to make sure to take advantage of the chance to work with him.The two became close quickly and spend hours together, not only at the stadium, but also in their free time.Its the best. Its like having an older brother who just knows everything, Reader said. He knows whats coming. When Im out there on the field with him its just so much fun because he loves the game and is passionate about it. I like being with him. Hes a great mentor, a family man so a lot of good examples come out of him.Reader had been learning from Wilfork all season and had started seeing steady playing time when Wilfork was injured and forced to sit out in a game against the Jaguars on Nov. 13. It was then that Reader started in Wilforks place. But instead of being nervous, Reader was determined to show his mentor that all his teaching had paid off.I was trying to do my best to step in and make him proud and do my job, Reader said.And when Reader got his first career sack by taking down Blake Bortles for an 8-yard loss in the third quarter, he couldnt have been happier about what happened next.Vince was there, first one to congratulate me when I got my first sack, Reader said beaming.While the Texans are impressed with how far Reader has come since they drafted him, everyone is eager to see how much better he can get if he keeps working as hard as he has so far.I want him to understand how good he can be because he can be a great football player and I think he will because he has the right mindset and he understands things and how things work, Wilfork said. Hes a great professional, a great teammate. Anything the coaches ask of him, he doesnt hesitate.Hes always trying to help the team, so I think he will be a good one in this league.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Discount Air Max 90 Mens .

This story appears in ESPN The Magazines August 22 College Football Preview Issue. Subscribe today!On a late-June morning, Oregon Ducks junior wide receiver Devon Allen practices his starts in the 110-meter hurdles at Hayward Field. In two weeks, on July 9, he will take his mark on the same starting line when Oregon hosts the U.S. Olympic track and field trials. On that day, to become one of the few active college football players ever to make an Olympic team, hell have to beat some serious competition in Aries Merritt and Jason Richardson, the 2012 gold and silver medalists. You cant be starstruck when you run against them, Allen says. Hopefully theyre worried about me too. If he makes the team, Allen will face a tough decision: Play with the Ducks or go pro in track post-Rio. But Allen isnt one to get ahead of himself, and The Mag is there as he approaches his first hurdle-: earning a ticket to Brazil.Double teamHis football teammates say hes a track star who plays football, but Allen insists hes a two-sport athlete who isnt ready to sacrifice one for the other. After winning his first U.S. outdoor title in the 110-meter hurdles in 2014, Allen led Ducks receivers with seven TD catches as a redshirt freshman before tearing his ACL at the 2015 Rose Bowl. It took me 12 months to feel 100 percent and confident again, Allen says, crrediting his football training with helping his track. Air Max 90 Womens Outlet. We train for explosiveness and strength, and that plays into hurdling.With the trials only two weeks away, Allen refuses to allow fear of injury to keep him off the gridiron. You can get hurt doing anything. These guys come to my track meets, and I like to be around the team. Besides, he adds, after the injury, I got faster.Running homeOver the past two weeks, Haywards green-and-yellow decor has given way to red, white and blue. I practice here every day, Allen says. Its a definite advantage. At the July 9 final, the crowd offers Allen deafening support during his strong start; with three hurdles to go, he is even with the other leaders. Thats when I knew, he says. My last hurdles are really strong.As he crosses the line in a personal-best 13.03, Allen realizes he has booked his trip to Rio de Janeiro, where he will be favored to medal on Aug. 15. He bolts toward the crowd and leaps into the stands, where Ducks right guard Cameron Hunt hugs him and points him toward his family, uniformed in Team Allen T-shirts. Afterward, Allen says it all feels surreal. I knew I could run that time. I knew it was in there. [But] it still hasnt set in. ' ' '

It couldnt save the day in the short term, but it laid a notable marker for events further down the line…Test No. 24 - Face-saving hundred in Galle Things would get worse before they got much better for Englands chastened cricketers. A home series loss against India was swiftly followed by a capitulation in Sri Lanka where, with the series level going into the third Test at Galle, they collapsed to 81 all out in reply to the home sides 499, and inevitable defeat. Nevertheless, Cooks bloodymindedness came bubbling to the fore in the follow-on, as he dug in against Muttiah Muralitharan to make a six-and-a-half hour 118. It wasnt enough to impress certain members of Englands travelling support, who draped a banner over the walls of the historic Galle Fort to declare England: Hang Your Heads in Shame. But Cook, at least, was able to fly home to celebrate his 23rd birthday with his own held high.Test Nos. 25-36 - The summer of sixties By the end of 2008, it was clear that Cook was a prodigy with purpose. In New Zealand in March he had become the youngest England batsman to reach 2000 Test runs (at the age of 23 years and two months) but for the rest of that year he seemed to hit something of a plateau - in the entire calendar year, he made eight fifties in 21 innings (an impressive effort), but had been unable to convert any of them to three figures. With scores of 60, 61, 60, 60, 76, 67, 52 and 50, it was time to turn to his mentor Graham Gooch, with whom he began working on the technical changes that he believed he needed to take his game to the next level.Test No. 43 - Wisden Trophy regained Cook broke his centuries drought with an eighth Test hundred against West Indies in Bridgetown, but given that the match had featured 1349 runs across its first two innings, including 291 for Ramnaresh Sarwan, his second-innings game-killer wasnt much to write home about. Of greater significance, however, was his career-best 160 at Chester-le-Street two months later. After Englands shock surrendering of the Wisden Trophy in the Caribbean, courtesy of their 51 all out in the first Test at Sabina Park, Cooks innings set up a pummelling innings win, and a 2-0 series victory, against a dispirited opposition.Test No. 50 - Innings win in Durban Cook played a low-key role in Englands home Ashes win - his most significant contribution was a first-day 95 in the second Test when, in harness with Andrew Strauss, he took full toll of Mitchell Johnsons stage fright to set up Englands first win against Australia at Lords for 75 years. But in Durban later that year, he was back to his obdurate best. Fresh from celebrating his 25th birthday, Cook dropped anchor with 118 from 263 balls, setting the stage for the coming of age of his team-mate, Ian Bell. England declared on 574 for 9, before routing South Africa for 133 in their second innings.Test No. 53 - Captains best 173 If there was any doubt that Cook was Englands anointed man, then the tour of Bangladesh in 2010 dispelled it once and for all. With Strauss taking a sabbatical ahead of Englands Ashes defence in Australia, Cook was tasked with leading England in his absence, on a potentially awkward campaign against an ever-improving opposition. He set the tone with a brace of 60s in the three-match ODI series (he was recalled as captain for that leg as well…) then laid down his marker by milking Bangladeshs spin-dominant attack for 173 in the first Test in Chittagong. A week later, he had wrapped up a clean sweep in all five internationals by anchoring Englands run-chase in Dhaka with 109 not out.Test No. 59 - Last-chance saloon at The Oval Cook, famously, has missed just one Test match in his entire career, and none for more than a decade since a stomach bug denied him a third cap on his maiden tour of India in 2006. But that record would surely have been interrupted but for this show of defiance against Pakistan at The Oval in 2010. All summer long, Cook had been hounded by the relentless pace, movement and accuracy of Mohammads Amir and Asif, and was braced for the drop after making 6 in the first innings of the third Test. But then he decided to throw caution to the wind, and cast aside the tinkerings that had left him so vulnerable outside off stump. I wasnt going to die wondering, he said afterwards.Tests No. 61, 62 and 65 - 517 for 1 and all that In the build-up to a seismic Ashes tussle in the winter of 2010-11, Australias focus had been entirely on one man. Kevin Pietersen was front and centre of their strategies as they sought to avenge Englands victory in the 2009 campaign; but hardly a breath of interest had been wasted on an opening batsman who, up to that point, had scored fewer than 500 runs in ten Ashes Tests, at a distinctly mediocre average of 26.21. But Cook made it his business to punish Australias oversight, racking up 766 runs in a 3-1 series triumph, including three vast hundreds. The biggest of the lot also doubles as his defining performance - an invincible innings of 235 not out in the cavernous hostility of the Gabba that turned the momentum of the series on its head. By the time he fell for 148 in the second Test at Adelaide, Cook had batted for 1053 minutes and 383 runs between dismissals, and an entire nation was sick to the teeth of his implacable leave outside off stump.Test No. 71 - The Edgbaston grand-daddy Notwithstanding his heroics Down Under, Cook was soon back to the grind of an English pre-season, out on dawn runs in the woods in Chelmsford, carrying a rucksack of bricks and being pursued by Gooch on a bicycle. The message from his mentor was simple but effective: when you are in the form of your life, theres even more reason to put in the extra groundwork. And his efforts would bear fruit in the third Test of Englands crushing home series win over India. Cooks returns for the rest of the summer were relatively modest, but he made his indelible mark with a 12-and-a-half hour 294 at Edgbaston, his highest Test score. He faltered, finally, in sight of what would have been Englands first triple-century since Gooch in 1990, but in making his innings a grand-daddy, he had lived another of the great mans mantras to the max. Theres a tinge of disappointment, Cook admitted, but if Im being realistic, Im absolutely thrilled.Tests No. 84, 85 and 86 - The jewel in the crown Cook may never receive more acclaim than for his performance in the 2010-11 Ashes, but his efforts in India two years later were surely his finest hour. Hed inherited a divided team following the retirement of Andrew Strauss in the summer, and having fought for the rehabilitation of Pietersen following the text-gate scandal, the opening exchanges of the first Test at Ahmedabad were ominous in the extreme. England slumped to 191 all out in reply to Indias 521 for 8 declared - Cook himself was sixth man out for 41, but thereafter he made it his mission to coax a performance from his team, come what may. His nine-and-a-half hour 176 in the follow-on wasnt enough to prevent a nine-wicket defeat, but it transformed the horizons for his side. His subsequent first-innings scores of 122 at Mumbai and 190 at Kolkata frogmarched England into an astonishing 2-1 series win - aided and abetted, of course, by world-class support from the spin pairing Graeme Swann and Monty Panesar, and inevitably, that man Pietersen.Test No. 100 - Ashes humiliation At The Oval in August 2013, Cook experienced one of the proudest moments of his career, as he led his England team to their fourth Ashes victory in five series, a 3-0 triumph that hindsight now confirms looked more emphatic than it actually was. Four months later, those scenes of jubilation must have felt like a figment of his imagination, as Australia tore back the urn with a savagery that surpassed even the trauma of 2006-07. Cooks personal nadir came in the third Test at Perth, the scene of Australias series-seizing win. In the first innings he battled through his own lack of form to make 72, his highest score for eight Tests. In the second, however, and chasing a forlorn 504 for victory, he received surely the best ball of his career - a sneering, swinging, seaming snorter from Ryan Harris that curled in, then zipped away to trim his off bail and send him on his way for a first-ball duck.Test No. 107 - Southampton sympathy There has surely never been a post-mortem to rival it. The fetid fallout from Englands Ashes whitewash contaminated every facet of the England team - not least the crassness of Pietersens sacking, which heaped cruel and unwarranted pressure on Cook, a consummate team man who had been conditioned throughout his career never to take a backwards step, and was damned if he was going to start now, even in the midst of the most barren spell of form imaginable. By the start of the third Test against India, he had gone 14 months without a century, and when his first ball of the match, from Bhuveshwar Kumar, was edged inches short of slip, followed soon after by being dropped on 15, the entire crowd feared the worst. And yet he clung to his wicket for dear life and when, by lunch, he had creaked his way to 48 not out, the crowd rose as one in acclaim. He fell eventually for 95, an apt reflection of how even his best efforts were suddenly falling short.Test No. 112 - A century at last Englands tour of the Caribbean in the spring of 2015 existed in a curious twilight zone, sandwiched between their humiliation in the World Cup (in which Cook played no part, having been dropped from the one-day squad at the eleventh hour) and the termination of Peter Moores ill-fated second coming. But Cook was grateful for the contests nonetheless, as he finally hauled a hulking great monkey off his back, and racked up the 26th Test century of his career, and his first for nearly two years. Test No. 120 - A whopper in Abu Dhabi Cooks record in Asia surpasses that of many home-grown batsman - eight centuries in 21 Tests to date, at a towering average of 60.86. And the heftiest of the lot came in the opening exchanges of Englands tour of the UAE in 2015-16, from a position of familiar peril. Pakistan had spent the first two days of the series racking up the small matter of 523 for 8 declared, with Shoaib Malik chipping in with a career-best 245. Cook, however, retorted with a 14-hour 263 - an innings so stultifyingly brilliant that it all but stole the contest. Pakistan imploded second-time around, leaving England a teasing chase of 99 in an hours worth of daylight. They were halted at 74 for 4 after 11 overs, with Cook banished to No.7 to allow his flightier colleagues to have a slog.Test No. 128 - 10,000 Test runs At 3.15pm on the fourth and final afternoon of the third Test against Sri Lanka at Chester-le-Street, Cook nudged Nuwan Pradeep off his pads with that familiar shovelling followthrough, all the way to the midwicket rope to become the first England batsman to reach 10,000 Test runs. He had kept his audience waiting for the moment - he had been within striking distance of five figures for the best part of five months - but the flamboyant gesture has never been his style. You need something tucked away to drive you to get up go running in the morning or bat in the nets with Goochy, he said. I am still hungry to achieve stuff.

DETROIT -- It did not take long for Mike Everitt to become persona non grata at Comerica Park on Saturday night.The plate umpire issued four ejections to the Tigers during the teams 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels, leaving players and their manager perplexed and a belligerent Detroit crowd in an uproar.After the loss, which snapped a five-game winning streak for Detroit, Tigers right fielder J.D. Martinez was still trying to make sense of his first career ejection -- one that came, he felt, after a fairly innocuous comment in the sixth inning.I dont know, man, he had a short leash today, I guess. I just told him hes having a bad day. Honestly, thats what I said. Youre having a bad day today, huh Mike? Martinez recalled.Martinez said that Everitt asked him to repeat what he said; after he complied with the request, he was tossed. The mild-mannered 28-year-old outfielder almost didnt believe it.I was shocked, Martinez said. I really was. Ive never been ejected in a game. Ive always treated the umpires with respect. Ive never disrespected one. By me saying that youre bad today, I dont feel like thats really an insult. I told him afterward, I was like, Everyone has bad days, Mike. I have bad days. Everyone has bad days. The least you could do is just man up to it.Martinez was the last of four ejections on the night -- which began with designated hitter Victor Martinez being tossed in the bottom of the third inning for arguing balls and strikes.Both Cameron Maybin and Miguel Cabrera were punched out in the bottom of the third by Angels left-hander Brett Oberholtzer -- Maybin went down swinging and Cabrera looking -- before Victor Martinez expressed his displeasure on a strike call from Everitt.Martinez exchanged words with Everitt, placing his hands behind his back, presumably to take a nonaggressive stance while arguing his case, but the theatrics only intensified from there.Martinez grew enraged during the heated exchange with Everitt, prompting Tigers manager?Brad Ausmus and second-base umpire Tim Timmons to intervene. Ausmus had to practically drag Martinez back to the duugout after the ejection, but the 37-year-old veteran continued to yell in Everitts direction even after leaving the field. Wholesale NFL Jerseys China. .According to Martinez and Ausmus, frustration had been mounting from a number of called strikes earlier in the game.If hes going to call those pitches on our hitters, we need those pitches called on their hitters. Thats really the gripe. Simple as that, Ausmus explained.Martinez also threw his helmet from the dugout, and Everitt made a note of that before resuming game action.Ausmus would not speculate on whether Victor Martinez, who was replaced by Tyler Collins as designated hitter, could be facing any supplementary discipline for the action.Everitt later tossed Detroit hitting coach Wally Joyner for arguing the strike zone in the fifth and then ejected Ausmus for arguing on Joyners behalf. It was the 10th career ejection for Ausmus as a manager and the second for Joyner as a coach.Bench coach Gene Lamont took over as Tigers manager.I think there was a number of players in the lineup that were frustrated with some of the pitches that were being called. Its part of the game. Umpires have off nights too. But we felt that it affected our offense tonight, Ausmus said.However, the Tigers manager said he was not worried about Everitt working Sundays series finale against the Angels or any subsequent games this season.No, no. Mike Everitts a professional. Ive known him for years. I thought he had an off night tonight, but I am in no way concerned about him going forward.According to ESPN Stats & Information research, Everitt has ejected six people in 2016, tying him with Dale Scott for most in the majors this season.After the game, Everitt declined to speak with a pool radio reporter but did provide one comment to a pool print reporter.All of the players, as well as the manager and coach, were warned, and sometimes more than once or twice, he said. I will be filing my report with the commissioners office in New York. ' ' ' 
apped at 16 gamHOUSTON -- By the time D. Cheap Air Max 90 Essential .J. Reader was 10 years old, he already had the body type he has today. And, he realized that if he kept playing football, his place would be on the defensive line.It was then that Reader discovered a rookie nose tackle playing for the New England Patriots: Vince Wilfork .Reader was drafted by the Houston Texans 12 years later and was thrilled at the opportunity to learn from the man who he began watching all those years ago.He was the best nose tackle in the league, Reader said. I was kind of chunky when I was a kid, so I knew I was going to be playing the D-line somewhere, so I just watched the best. Watched him all the time.Wilfork, now 35 and in his 13th NFL season, shook his head and laughed when told that Reader had been a fan of his since he was a child. The veteran said Reader never acted star-struck around him despite looking up to him for years before the pair met.No, he hasnt. He kept that to himself, Wilfork said. (Man) that makes me sound old ... (but) its a mutual respect. Its good to feel like that. Its even better to give knowledge to the younger players, especially somebody thats in my position that I can actually really mentor because Ive played it. Ive done it.This season, Reader has blossomed under the tutelage of Wilfork and defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel. His natural talent was clear when the Texans selected him in the fifth round of this years draft after a career at Clemson where he played in 46 games and had 145 career tackles. But it was also evident that the 6-foot-3, 335-pound Reader had a lot to learn when he first arrived in Houston.These young guys when they come in, they dont understand how the game is played or how to play the game, Crennel said. I think over this season, hes learned his abilities and how he can use his abilities in the game. I think hes playing better as a result of it. Hes understanding the fits, what he can get done, when to come off the block and those kind of things. Hes better as a result of it.After studying Wilfork for so long from afar, Reader wanted to make sure to take advantage of the chance to work with him.The two became close quickly and spend hours together, not only at the stadium, but also in their free time.Its the best. Its like having an older brother who just knows everything, Reader said. He knows whats coming. When Im out there on the field with him its just so much fun because he loves the game and is passionate about it. I like being with him. Hes a great mentor, a family man so a lot of good examples come out of him.Reader had been learning from Wilfork all season and had started seeing steady playing time when Wilfork was injured and forced to sit out in a game against the Jaguars on Nov. 13. It was then that Reader started in Wilforks place. But instead of being nervous, Reader was determined to show his mentor that all his teaching had paid off.I was trying to do my best to step in and make him proud and do my job, Reader said.And when Reader got his first career sack by taking down Blake Bortles for an 8-yard loss in the third quarter, he couldnt have been happier about what happened next.Vince was there, first one to congratulate me when I got my first sack, Reader said beaming.While the Texans are impressed with how far Reader has come since they drafted him, everyone is eager to see how much better he can get if he keeps working as hard as he has so far.I want him to understand how good he can be because he can be a great football player and I think he will because he has the right mindset and he understands things and how things work, Wilfork said. Hes a great professional, a great teammate. Anything the coaches ask of him, he doesnt hesitate.Hes always trying to help the team, so I think he will be a good one in this league.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Discount Air Max 90 Mens .

Subscribe today!On a late-June morning, Oregon Ducks junior wide receiver Devon Allen practices his starts in the 110-meter hurdles at Hayward Field. In two weeks, on July 9, he will take his mark on the same starting line when Oregon hosts the U.S. Olympic track and field trials. On that day, to become one of the few active college football players ever to make an Olympic team, hell have to beat some serious competition in Aries Merritt and Jason Richardson, the 2012 gold and silver medalists. You cant be starstruck when you run against them, Allen says. Hopefully theyre worried about me too. If he makes the team, Allen will face a tough decision: Play with the Ducks or go pro in track post-Rio. But Allen isnt one to get ahead of himself, and The Mag is there as he approaches his first hurdle-: earning a ticket to Brazil.Double teamHis football teammates say hes a track star who plays football, but Allen insists hes a two-sport athlete who isnt ready to sacrifice one for the other. After winning his first U.S. outdoor title in the 110-meter hurdles in 2014, Allen led Ducks receivers with seven TD catches as a redshirt freshman before tearing his ACL at the 2015 Rose Bowl. It took me 12 months to feel 100 percent and confident again, Allen says, crrediting his football training with helping his track. Air Max 90 Womens Outlet.

Besides, he adds, after the injury, I got faster.Running homeOver the past two weeks, Haywards green-and-yellow decor has given way to red, white and blue. I practice here every day, Allen says. Its a definite advantage. At the July 9 final, the crowd offers Allen deafening support during his strong start; with three hurdles to go, he is even with the other leaders. Thats when I knew, he says. My last hurdles are really strong.As he crosses the line in a personal-best 13.03, Allen realizes he has booked his trip to Rio de Janeiro, where he will be favored to medal on Aug. 15. He bolts toward the crowd and leaps into the stands, where Ducks right guard Cameron Hunt hugs him and points him toward his family, uniformed in Team Allen T-shirts.

He might remember this one for a while considering it came in the nightcap of a doubleheader wearing road grey uniforms while batting first as the home team. Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run double to help Bochy reach the milestone victory, and the San Francisco Giants split a straight doubleheader with the Cincinnati Reds with a 5-3 victory in the nightcap Tuesday. "I dont know what that number means, except Im fortunate Ive been doing this as long as I have," Bochy said. "Im thankful. I know how lucky I am." Hunter Pence hit an RBI single, Gregor Blanco had a sacrifice fly, and Brandon Belt added an RBI groundout in San Franciscos first win in six tries against the Reds this season after being outscored 34-6 in the first five meetings — including 11-0 on Monday night and 9-3 in the opener Tuesday. The Reds had 10 hits after combining for 32 in the first two games. The teams were forced to make up a July 4 rainout at Great American Ball Park. Cincinnati batted last and wore home uniforms as the visiting team. Bochy became the 21st manager with 1,500 wins and third active along with Reds skipper Dusty Baker and Detroits Jim Leyland. Bochy said "its very humbling" to be mentioned among such managers. "Hes a fine manager. Hes a guy that I enjoy managing against," Baker said. "I didnt even know it was 1,500, so congratulations to Bruce." Bochy tipped his cap to the crowd when the milestone was announced as players shook hands afterward. And Barry Zito, the pitcher Bochy removed one out from qualifying for a win, praised the skippers feat. "I think hes a very underrated manager, maybe because hes a quiet guy and doesnt toot his own horn," Zito said. "Thats a very special accomplishment and were all very happy for him." The Giants were outscored 34-6 over their first five games with Cincinnati before doing just enough in Tuesdays second game. Devin Mesoraco had a three-run homer among his three hits in the opener to put him at 6 for 9 with two homers through the first two games. He didnt start the second game but struck out as a pinch-hitter to end the seventh, with a runner on second, and stayed in the game. The Reds called up former Stanford right-hander Greg Reynolds (0-1), a native of nearby Pacifica, from Triple-A Louisville to start the second game. He allowed five runs and eight hits in five innings of his first big league outing since a start Sept. 25, 2011, for Colorado. Santiago Casilla (4-2) struck out two in 1 1-3 innings for the win, then Sergio Romo recorded the final four outs for his 24th save in 27 opportunities. He struck out Brandon Phillips to end the eighth with two runners aboard, then struck out the side in the ninth after Jay Bruces leadoff single — including Mesoraco to end it. Cassilla was the third pitcher in relief of struggling lefty Zito, replaced after allowing a pair of two-out hits in the fifth including Todd Fraziers RBI double. Wholesale Air Jordan. Zito, who won Game 1 of the World Series last fall, saw his winless streak reach nine starts since the lefty beat Oakland on May 30. Frazier finished with two doubles and three of Cincinnatis hits on a night the Reds missed multiple chances. They stranded 14 baserunners, seven in scoring position. Bruce also had three hits. "We were never really out of it," Bruce said. "We just couldnt get the timely hit, and Barry was making enough pitches to skirt around it." Earlier, Joey Votto and Zack Cozart also homered for the swinging Reds, who had pizza and sushi delivered to the clubhouse for a quick dinner between games. "Weve got some hot bats," Mesoraco said after the opener. "Ride it out as long as you can. You want to go out there and put up as many runs as you can, especially early, and take a little pressure off the starting pitcher. Thats what we were able to do the last two nights." Cozart finished 4 for 4 with two RBIs and three runs to back Tony Cingrani (4-1). The left-hander was added to the roster as the Reds permitted 26th player for the doubleheader. He was headed back to the Arizona Rookie League after the game to fulfil the final five days required after being optioned previously to the minors. He is set to return and start Sunday for Cincinnati. The Reds had dominated the Giants this year after allowing San Francisco to rally from an 0-2 deficit to win the NL division series matchup last October.

ASHBURN, Va. NBA Jerseys Store . -- Quarterback Robert Griffin III said Thursday "without a doubt" that he expects to be fully recovered from knee surgery and in uniform when the Washington Redskins open training camp on July 25 in Richmond. "One, its a mindset and then two, its how its progressed," the Griffin said of his surgically repaired right knee. "I feel confident in my body and the way its been responding. Training camps a month and a half away. Thats why I say without a doubt. I think its the right target if Im healthy." Griffin had knee surgery on Jan. 9 to repair the ACL and LCL he had torn during the playoff loss to Seattle three days earlier. Coach Mike Shanahan said that Griffin was initially projected to miss seven-to-nine months. That would mean Griffin wouldnt return before Aug. 9, the day after Washington opens its preseason schedule against Tennessee. "I dont think anybody knows for sure, (but) I like that goal," Shanahan said of Griffin being ready for camp. "You want him to come back as soon as hes ready to go, but the doctors gotta OK him." For now, Griffin finished the final day of organized team activities as usual by working on a side of the field with some of his fellow rehabbing teammates. The difference this week was that the Redskins went four straight days for the first time this off-season. "I felt good today," Griffin said. "Thats what Im excited about, to have those four straight days and still feel good with no soreness. Every day you want to feel better and thats how its been. I started throwing on the run a lot more, doing a lot more plant throws out of the play-action. I also bumped up the long-distance running. Im feeling more comfortable doing everything."

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Red Sox might replace retiring designated hitter David Ortiz internally or with a short-term free agent, rather than pursue one of the prominent long-term options on the market, Bostons president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski told reporters at the MLB general managers meetings on Monday.Ortiz, a 10-time All-Star, hit 38 home runs, drove in 127 runs and led the major leagues with an OPS of 1.021 in the final season of a 20-year career. He won the Hank Aaron Award as the American Leagues best hitter this season.Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Bautista and Mark Trumbo are among the top power hitters available on the free-agent market. But they are all expected to seek multiyear deals, and Dombrowski said the Red Sox might take a more modest approach to filling their DH spot.Im not sure if were going to do it internally with a lot of the people we have or go outside the organization, Dombrowski said. We know we can never replace [Ortizs] presence. But we have a lot of guys who can play different positions. We have young guys coming that we like a great deal, so well just kind of have to wait to see what happens there.There are a lot of different factors. One is affordability, but not only that. How long do you want to tie somebody up for that position when we have a lot of young players coming? Thats a very important part of it.First baseman Hanley Ramirez is under contract through 2018 and has a vesting option for 2019, and Pablo Sandoval is expected to return from a shoulder injury and be back in the mix for the starting third-base job next season. With Travis Shaw capable of playing both cornerr infield positions, the Red Sox have some flexibility to use both Ramirez and Sandoval at DH. Nike NBA Jerseys China. If the Red Sox decide to pursue a free agent on a shorter deal, switch-hitters?Kendrys Morales and?Carlos Beltran are potential options. The Red Sox reportedly inquired about Beltran at the trade deadline in July, before the New York Yankees dealt him to the Texas Rangers. Beltran, 39, hit .295 with 29 homers and an .850 OPS in 151 games with the Yankees and Rangers in 2016.Dombrowski mentioned Yoan Moncada, Sam Travis and Rafael Devers as prospects who might not be far from having an impact with the big league club.Moncada, 21, is ranked among the elite prospects in baseball. He posted a .918 OPS in two minor league stops to earn a September call-up to Boston. But Dombrowski expects him to return to the minors to begin the 2017 season.In July, we would have said we thought he would be ready for the big leagues this year, Dombrowski said of Moncada. We still love his abilities, but we all saw the same thing as far as the exposure to a steady diet of off-speed pitches and breaking balls and changeups. I think he would be able to play third base well enough with a month of spring training, and he does have versatility. But right now, his bat probably needs some seasoning at the minor league level.I cant rule him out, because Ive seen some very talented individuals like him come on very quickly. But if we are starting the season tomorrow, he would probably start at the minor league level. ' ' '

Kim, with an afternoon tee time playing the major for the first time, wondered, "Wow, how did she shoot that score?" Then Kim went out Thursday and shot one stroke better, finishing with a bogey-free, 6-under 66 to take the first-round lead at Sebonack. Park is trying to make history by winning the first three majors of the year. For a day at least, she was upstaged by a much less-heralded fellow South Korean. "Im enjoying myself," Kim said through a translator. "Im just happy to be here and to be playing in this big event. Im not really thinking about winning or results but enjoying the moment." Currently a member of the KLPGA Tour, Kim is a seven-time winner in South Korea. She kept giving herself short birdie putts Thursday and making them. Kim birdied her second-to-last hole with daylight waning to claim the lead after Park held it for most of the day with her 67 in the morning session. No player has won the first three majors in a season with at least four majors. The 2008 U.S. Womens Open champion, Park has already won five times this year, including her last two tournaments. American Lizette Salas, Swedes Caroline Hedwall and Anna Nordqvist and South Koreas I.K. Kim shot 68. Maude-Aimee LeBlanc of Sherbrooke, Que,. is three shots back at 69. Brooke Mackenzie Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont., carded a 71. Charlottetowns Lorie Kane, Jessica Sheply of Owen Sound, Ont., Nicole Zhang of Calgary and Kirby Dreher of Fort St. John, B.C., shot 77. Shephanie Sherlock of Barrie, Ont., is another shot back. Isabelle Beisiegel of St. Hilaire, Que., turned in an 84. Concerned about bad weather, tournament officials moved up the tees, and with the rain holding off, Park was able to play aggressively. "I never had practiced from those tees, so I was a little bit shocked when I went to the tees," Park said. Not that she was complaining. She repeatedly set up short putts, and the way she has excelled in her short game lately, Park was headed to a low score. "So instead of hitting like 5-irons, we were hitting 9-irons, and that was making the course much easier," she said. "I was actually able to go for some pins and give myself a lot of opportunities today. I made a lot of putts and didnt leave much out there." Starting on No. 10, Park birdied her first hole, then started racking up pars. She made the turn at 2 under before birdies on three of her next four holes. At 5 under, Park briefly struggled with her tee shots, needing to save par on Nos. 5 and 7. On No. 6, her 15th hole of the day, she had to lay up out of the tall grass and settled for her lone bogey. Wholesale Vapormax Flyknit. Park got back to 5 under on the par-5 eighth with a chip shot to about 5 feet that set up a birdie putt. Hedwall and I.K. Kim were each at 5 under with a hole left, but closed with bogeys. Nordqvist birdied her last two holes to pull into the tie for third. The two Swedes grew up playing together. "Certainly seeing her shooting 4 under in the morning session gave me a little bit of inspiration for the afternoon," Nordqvist said. Salas, a 23-year-old former Southern California star, played with Park in the last group of the final round of this years Kraft Nabisco Championship. Three strokes back starting the day, she opened with a double bogey and tumbled to 25th after shooting a 79. She bounced back to reach a playoff at the LPGA Lotte Championship in April, losing to Suzann Pettersen for her best finish on tour. "Im just getting a lot more used to being in contention and really studying the leaderboard and really managing my patience," Salas said. "I think thats been key for me this week. Yes, I still get nervous on the first tee and my hands keep shaking, but I just know that if I just trust myself and trust my instincts, I can perform out here." Chiles Paz Echeverria, a 28-year-old LPGA Tour rookie also making her U.S. Womens Open debut, shot 69. Among eight players at 70 was Natalie Gulbis, who withdrew from a tournament and missed two others earlier this year because of malaria. Infected by a mosquito during the LPGA Thailand in late February, she returned for the Kraft Nabisco in early April. Gulbis hasnt finished better than 13th since, missing the cut at the LPGA Championship. Defending champion Na Yeon Choi, second-ranked Stacy Lewis and amateurs Kyung Kim and Brooke Henderson were among 11 players at 71. Lydia Ko, the 16-year-old New Zealand amateur who won the Canadian Open last August to become the youngest LPGA Tour winner, had a 72. Juli Inkster, playing in a record-breaking 34th U.S. Womens Open at age 53, holed a 103-yard wedge shot for eagle on the 18th to also finish at 72. Michelle Wie opened her round with a quadruple-bogey 8 on No. 10. She was at 11 over through 14 holes before birdies on three of the last four to finish with an 80. With Parks two major titles to start the year, South Koreans have won four straight majors. But Ha-Neul Kim was an unlikely representative to lead after the first round of this tournament. "I was very nervous coming in, and I thought in the practice round that the course was very difficult," she said. "Before playing today I thought that even par would be a very good score for me."

TORONTO – The wound was far from healed, the sting of a devastating collapse in Game 7 still painful for Randy Carlyle and the Maple Leafs. China Jerseys . “The feeling is frustration,” said Carlyle, upon the dismissal of his hockey club on Thursday morning, “at times you feel you were hit between the eyes with a hammer.” “You go to dinner and people are congratulating you,” he continued, “but [then they ask] what happened? And I dont have an answer. I dont have an answer for it, I wish I did.” Had they not collapsed in the final moments of regulation at the TD Garden on Monday evening before falling in overtime, the Leafs would have been hosting the opening game of a second round series with the New York Rangers. Instead, they were left to contemplate how a three-goal lead could disintegrate in such horrifying fashion. “We play that game 100 times, I dont think it happens again,” Dave Nonis, the Leafs general manager stated. “We have to find a way of flushing that memory out of our system [though] because if we dwell on that for the next three months were not going to be prepared for October.” In final exit meetings on Thursday morning, Carlyle and the Toronto coaching staff delivered a similar message, a need to absorb the sting of heart-wrenching reality before moving forward and beyond the late-game failure. “The only thing that I said to them is I said that itll take some time,” Carlyle relayed of his conversations with the group. “Time will heal this, but we can never forget it. And thats one of the things that we will and Im sure [the media] will be bringing this up on a regular basis when we start next year. How can you ignore it? You cant. Its the reality.” James Reimer relived the experience just a day after. “It was tough to watch,” he said of the carnage, which saw the Bruins score twice in the final two minutes before Patrice Bergeron sealed the series with his second of the game in overtime. “The way we lost definitely eats at you quite a bit,” added James van Riemsdyk, who led the team with seven points in the playoffs. Bitter disappointment of the defeat aside, the Leafs nonetheless managed to have an improbably successful season, reaching the post-season for the first time in nine years. Additionally, they were able to align and confirm various building blocks of the organization: Cody Franson emerged as capable two-way defender; Nazem Kadri demonstrated his worth as an NHL regular; James Reimer proved himself a capable starter; Phil Kessel solidified his status as a bona-fide star; van Riemsdyk offered prominent flashes of power forward potential. Despite their finish as the unlikely fifth seed in the Eastern Conference, however, Nonis and the Leafs management team are unlikely to buy into the notion that their roster is just a piece or two away from regular contending status. While he would not outline specific off-season needs, other than to say upgrades across the roster would be desired, the Leafs roster would certainly stand to benefit from aid on defence, specifically an established presence in the top-four, some added stability and size on the wing – David Clarkson perhaps? –  and further clarity down the middle with uncertainty surrounding the likes of Tyler Bozak and perhaps Mikhail Grabovski, who struggled mightily (until the post-season) under Carlyle. “We need to get better,” Nonis said. “We need to add more pieces. Weve taken some significant steps but were not there. Were not playing tonight. And I think theres a lot of good things that happened. Randy, myself, our staff, we feel the same way about how our team needs to play and the pieces that we need to acquire or develop and were going to go about our jobs to try and do that.” Unlike his predecessor, Brian Burke, who made July 1 an annual day for vigorous pursuit of improvement, Nonis didnt anticipate the free agent route as a prominent source for upgrades. “Great players and good players arent readily available in free agency,” he said. “So were going to have to either develop those players, and be patient with the guys we have coming, or were going to have to try to add pieces. But if theres nothing available to us, are we content with bringing a similar group back? No question. These guys have worked hard and theyve done a good job. But were going to look to improve our franchise if we can.” A number of questions need answering. BOZAK & CENTRE STRENGTH Will the price-tag for the 27-year-old prove too high? While he capably assumed the array of responsibilities the position entails, Tyler Bozaks true value likely will not align with what he may be able to fetch on the free agent marketplace. “If theres a contract that makes sense for us and makes sense for Tyler then well sign him,” Nonis declared. “I believe, I always have believed, that if a player wants to stay with your team, you find a way to make it happen if you want to have him as well … But the cap is going down. How we allocate our dollars is going to be very important if were going to remain competitive.” The obvious question if Bozak departs is where the Leafs go to replace those minutes and production. Nazem Kadri emerged in the first three months of the regular season, but tailed off down the stretch and may not be ready or suited to assume such a hefty load as Torontos top centre. Mikhail Grabovski is a different type of question mark. The 29-year-old endured the worst season of his career before re-emerging in the post-season. Predicting his contributions is a difficult task at this point. Beyond Grabovski, further opportunity for Kadri, and perhaps an NHL job for Joe Colborne in a lesser capacity, options on the free agent market are thin, topped by Derek Roy (age 30) and Mike Ribeiro (33), each of whom is likely to out-price Bozak. Formerly of the University of Denver, the choice may just come down to Bozak and the inherent question of whether extra dollars elsewhere outweigh the comforts and security of what hes established in Toronto, that is a considerable role alongside a premium talent and good friend in Phil Kessel. “I think that stuff weighs in a lot,” he said Thursday, a torn triceps ending his season prematurely after Game 5 against the Bruins. “I think whenever youre comfortable somewhere it means a lot. I have the ability to play with really good players here that I think I connect well with on and off the ice. I have trust with the coaching staff which is huge. If you go somewhere else you never know what theyre going to think of you when you get there or how much youre going to play or whats going to happen, it means a lot.”   GOALTENDING James Reimer finished the regular season amongst the top-10 in save percentage, helping his team swipe Games 5 and 6 against the Bruins in the post-season. But has he demonstrated enough, notably in a 48-game season, to fully clarify the Leafs goaltending situation moving forward into next season? “At this point, Id say hell be back as No. 1,” said Nonis of the 25-year-old, who managed a .924 save mark in 2013, the highest ever for a Toronto goaltender in a single season. “He did a very good job for us. I think his mental makeup and mental strength is something that was a question last year and I think its clear that a lot of his issues a year ago were based upon his health. When we needed quality goaltending, for the most part… James was very good. I dont think anybody can point to goaltending as an issue with our team.” It was only in early April, however, that Nonis and the Leafs delegation sought Miikka Kiprusoff as a veteran security blanket for Reimer. Whether theyll pursue a similar course, or even an upgrade, this summer will be worth monitoring. Ben Scrivens remains under contract for one more season with potential veteran backups including Evgeni Nabakov (age 37), Niklas Backstrom (35), Nikolai Khabibulin (40), Ray Emery (30), and Jose Theodore (36). INTERNAL FREE AGENTS The Leafs project to have upwards of $19 million in cap space available this summer with the cap itself trimming down to $64 million next season. “We are in fairly good position cap wise," Nonis noted. "We have some players we have to re-sign, so thats going to eat into that cap space a little bit. But were not in a position where we have to shed money, which some teams clearly are." Outside of the potential Bozak quandary, Nazem Kadri could prove the most challenging of the internal free agent lot for the Leafs. A restricted free agent, the 22-year-old emerged with 18 goals and 44 points in his first bit of sustained NHL action, a considerable increase in value for a player whose future with the organization prior to the season seemed wholly in doubt. Assigning worth for his second contract may be a challenge though considering the uniqueness of his late rise and lack of true comparables. Helping to tame his worth perhaps was a late slowdown, just one goal and five points in April. Also due to be signed in the restricted class are Cody Franson, Carl Gunnarsson, Mark Fraser, Frazer McLaren and Leo Komarov. Franson ($1.2 million this season) and Gunnarsson ($1.35) will, in particular, be due considerable raises. Mike Kostka, Colton Orr, and Clarke MacArthur figure among the less certain unrestricted commodities, though Kostka and Orr especially, figure to return at the right price. MacArthur would seem less certain. Though he had a resurgent playoff, the 28-year-old endured an inconsistent regular season and would seemingly require a pay cut from the $3.25 million hit he garnered in 2013 to return next season. KESSEL & PHANEUF The questions of their future with the organization were far more pertinent prior to the 2013 campaign than they are presently. Both Dion Phaneuf and Phil Kessel have a year left on their respective contracts, but after successful campaigns for each, Kessel especially, the debate on their status as fundamental pieces of the roster moving forward seems less pertinent. Quite simply, the matter is not urgent. If Nonis and his team – Claude Loiselle specifically – can find an agreeable number and term with one or both parties, then they are likely to move in that direction. If not, the matter can be resolved and further debated in the summer of 2014. UPGRADES ON DEFENCE The Leafs figure to be set with at least five certain options on their back-end for next season – Dion Phaneuf, Carl Gunnarsson, Cody Franson, Jake Gardiner and Mark Fraser – provided none are moved via trade. In question for Nonis is whether an option to improve in the top-four is available, specifically a player who can step in and provide difficult minutes on either a first or second pair. Franson and Fraser were forced into such duty out of necessity in 2013, but had by far their best success as a third pair and are probably better suited in that role together moving forward. If Phaneuf and Gunnarsson remain as the top duo, no certainty if the right option can be had, then perhaps the course for Nonis would be to find a defender to play alongside Gardiner on a potential second pairing. The top-6 would look as such: Carl Gunnarsson-Dion Phaneuf Jake Gardiner-[defender] Mark Fraser-Cody Franson Or if a suitable defender cant be had – the free agent market is thin with Andrew Ference, Rob Scuderi and Ron Hainsey among the top options  – the Leafs could bump Franson up alongside Gardiner, thus in need of a depth player or players for their third pair. Internally, Korbinian Holzer and Jesse Blacker may be candidates to move up. And while a full season with Dallas Eakins in the American League may be the proper course, there is also every chance Morgan Rielly challenges for a job in the fall of 2014. Of additional intrigue will be the futures of Mike Komisarek and John-Michael Liles. A Toronto Marlie in the final months of the season, Komisarek is an almost certain compliance buyout, Liles status more up in the air. The 32-year-old has three years remaining at a cap hit of $3.8 million, the steady veteran bouncing in and out of the lineup this season, not exactly an ideal fit under Carlyles brute style. A trade seems the likeliest of scenarios for Liles, though the dollar figures and term (especially with the cap falling in 2014) may make that a difficult pursuit. Fake NFL Jerseys .

AMES, Iowa -- The Big 12s oldest coach is about to meet the youngest.Kansas States Bill Snyder, 78, became just the seventh coach in FBS history to coach at least 300 games at one school earlier this season -- and a win Saturday at Iowa State (1-6, 0-4) would give him 198 career victories, good for 25th all time.Iowa States Matt Campbell, at 36 the youngest Power Five coach in the country, just finished his seventh game with the Cyclones.Campbell has only come out on top once, and the matchup against the Wildcats (4-3, 2-2) is one of the few games left that Iowa State has a reasonable chance of winning.I dont care what profession youre in, especially in the world of college football. Its hard to sustain success, and hes had this unique ability to do it, Campbell said of Snyder. Its a great matchup for our team (in terms of), where are we in our own culture? Because, to me, it says a lot each others culture right now.Despite its dismal record, Iowa State has led at halftime in three of its four Big 12 games and is coming off a bye.But lately Kansas State has owned this series, which will be played for the 100th year in a row this weekend.The Wildcats have taken the last eight meetings. But the last two victories in Ames were by just 10 total points -- and last year the Cyclones gave up 10 points in the final 40 seconds, losing 38-35 and costing coach Paul Rhoads his job.In some cases, we have been fortunate. In all cases, we have been fortunate to have a lot of good young guys who do not give in, Snyder said.Here are some of the other keys to watch for as Iowa State hosts Kansas State in the first of four home games out of five to close 2016:ERTZS HOMECOMING: K-State quarterback Jesse Ertz grew up in Mediapolis, Iowa, near the Mississippi River. Hes put up pedestrian passing numbers so far, with six TDs and three picks while completing just 54 percent of his passes. Replica Jerseys. But he has rushed for 199 yards and four touchdowns in his last three games -- including two in last weeks 24-21 win over Texas.UP-AND-DOWN CYCLONES: Iowa States offense has been all over the place through seven games. The Cyclones scored 44, 42 and 31 points in a three-game stretch against San Jose State, Baylor and Oklahoma State. But they also scored just three points at Iowa and six in a 21-point loss at Texas two weeks ago.WILDCATS RUSH D: Iowa State has struggled at times to run the ball consistently. Facing the Wildcats wont help. Kansas State is third nationally in rush defense at 94.9 yards per game, and its players swarm to the ball like few other teams. The Wildcats have nine players with at least 20 tackles. Their front seven is impressive across the board, Campbell said. Theyre really good tacklers in space, and they dont give up many big plays.Game notes Iowa State leads the series 49-46-4, winning 28 times in Ames. ... This will be the 99th consecutive game for the Cyclones. They last missed homecoming in 1918 when it was cancelled because of the Spanish Flu epidemic. ... The Wildcats are 18-0 under Snyder when they get offensive, defensive and special teams scores in the same game. ... Iowa State has gotten 33 starts in 2016 out of current or former walk-ons.HE SAID IT: They dont have the big recruits, Iowa State receiver Allen Lazard said about K-State. But theyre definitely disciplined. They do what theyre coached to do.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. Custom Nike Chicago Cubs Jerseys . -- Tom Coughlin and Graeme McDowell share an Irish heritage and the highest achievement in their sports. One has a U.S. Open title and delivered the clinching point in the Ryder Cup, the other has two Super Bowl titles as coach of the New York Giants.Only when McDowell opened another restaurant, this one down the road from PGA Tour headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, did they discover a similar passion.They sat at a table a few hours before Nona Blue was filled to capacity Wednesday on opening night, swapping stories about their foundations, each geared toward helping sick children without neglecting the financial and emotion burden on the entire family.What brought them together was McDowell wanting to be a good neighbor in a new town, and Coughlin already having done his part.When you come into an area, if you want to establish yourself, giving back is a great starting place, McDowell said.The original Nona Blue opened three years ago in Orlando. For the next tavern, McDowell and business partners Joe Davi and Bill Bona had what amounted to a dress rehearsal last week for the staff. The food was complimentary. All they asked was for guests to leave a gratuity that would go to a local charity.Jamie Baird, who handles the marketing, found the Jay Fund Foundation that Coughlin began in 1996 when he was head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.It seemed like a good fit.The tips that night came out to $15,000.When Graeme got ready to open the restaurant, the first thing they did was try to give back, Coughlin said. And when they were talking in the community about giving back, we were fortunate that they named the Jay Fund Foundation as the charity of choice. So it worked out super for us.They were practicing to open, said Coughlin, still relying on football terms. When I heard it was $15,000, I couldnt believe it.McDowell, raised in Northern Ireland, did his homework on Coughlins foundation and the man who won 170 games in 20 years as an NFL coach. He even read Coughlins book, Earn the Right to Win.And yes, he made sure he was on time -- which means early -- for the opening.People were very passionate about coachs foundation, and they gave generously, McDowell said.Coughlins inspiration for his foundation was Jay McGillis, a safety who played for Coughlin at Boston College when he died of leukemia in 1992. He made up for his lack of size by working harder than anyone else. He was Coughlins kind of guy. And his death, along with the effect on parents and five siblings, stayed with the coach.The experience we had with Jay and his family, I just knew we would give back and it would be in the spirit of Jay, Coughlin said.Coughlin is still popular in Jacksonville, having taken the Jaguars to the AFC title game in 1996 in just their second season. He was fired after a third straight losing season in 2002, and he was hired by the Giants in 2004.Two major hospitals were concerned that would be the end of the Jay Fund. Instead, contributions increased when Coughlin said he was leaving it there, and he started a branch of the Jay Fund in New York.Only when he met McDowell did Coughlin realize The G-Mac Foundation was for childrens medical research. One aspect of the foundation brings Irish children and their families to Orlando during the holidays for some happy times.Thats what coachs foundation looks after, McDowell said. Its not only the victim, but the siblings and the families, and the fact it tears them apart. Its a financial strain. So the idea of bringing families to Orlando is just to put smiles on their faces and put families back together.It put a smile on Coughlins face just listening to McDowell speak.Bringing kids to Disney, he said. Can you imagine the look on their faces, coming over from Ireland, the whole family? Custom Nike Washington Nationals Jerseys . It is a cliché dragged out by fans and pundits regularly when discussions take place around which teams are better than others. Custom Nike Atlanta Braves Jerseys . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. https://www.customnikebaseballjerseys.com/311n-custom-nike-tampa-bay-rays-jerseys-baseball.html . The All-Pro lineman got the leg bent under him while trying to make a tackle during the first half of a 22-20 overtime loss at Miami on Thursday night. The medical staff initially thought hed torn the ligament, and the test a day later in Cincinnati confirmed it. The Atlanta Falcons are feeling pretty good about the start to their season, but defensive shortcomings are a concern.That could be just the tonic for a strangely sluggish offense for the Carolina Panthers.The teams meet Sunday afternoon at the Georgia Dome, with the Falcons anticipating an agitated opponent.Plenty of us to shine a light on to improve on, Falcons coach Dan Quinn said despite back-to-back victories. Were building toward that. We have a lot of work to do.The Falcons rank first in the NFL in offense by scoring 34.7 points and gaining 448 yards per game. It has been a good blend of rushing and passing, with quarterback Matt Ryan completing more than 70 percent of his passes to go along with seven touchdowns with only one interception.Every time we go against them, theyre physical, Ryan said of the matchup with the Panthers. Were going to have to play our best football.Carolina is coming off a 22-10 home loss to the Minnesota Vikings. They enter the game in Atlanta having not scored for more than 50 minutes.It just cant happen, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said of the inconsistencies. We have to hone in and be more thorough.Carolina receiver Kelvin Benjamin went without a reception and had only one ball throw his way against the Vikings after a two-touchdown outing the previous game, and quarterback Cam Newton vowed to have Benjamin more involved.Theres one thing Ive learned, if Cam says hes going to do something hes sure going to try to do it, Rivera said after learning of his quarterbacks midweek comments.Games in his hometown of Atlanta naturally take on more significance to him, Newton said, and his teams early struggles are bringing on added frustration.They dont care about Carolina, he said of the Falcons. Were 1-2. We just cant get into the rhythm of winning. It is frustrating. ... We have to take that personal challenge that we have to be better.The Panthers were so out of sync on the offensive line that Newton was sacked eight times by the Vikings.Its tough seeing him go down anytime, Panthers offensive guard Trai Turner said. You never want to see your quarterback go down.Newton wasnt going to blame his offensive line and brushed off the problem while turning the focus ahead.Just pressure recognition and get the ball out of my hand, Newton said. Ready to take on the challenge from Atlanta.But if the Falcons have shown shortcomings the past couple of weeks it has come in their pass defense. Plus, Atlantas defense has notched only three sacks all season and that might account for why the Falcons have given up a fair share of big plays through the air. Custom Nike Houston Astros Jerseys. .The explosive passes, that has to come down, Quinn said. A couple of cases they were mental (mistakes).The Panthers, though, have various ways to move the ball on the ground and thats why they rank third in the NFL with an average of 146 rushing yards.This is a tough outfit, Quinn said of the Panthers. It really (starts) off their run game. They have a number of packages they feature, and their quarterback is involved.The Falcons had so many contributors in defeating New Orleans 45-32 on Monday night that Quinn is calling for a carryover of that type of team work.As a coach, thats what pumps you up, Quinn said. You play as a whole group, a whole unit. Youre pulling for one another. When you play team ball like that, thats what fires me up.Adding to the efficiency, Atlanta wasnt called for an offensive penalty.The Panthers brought back defensive tackle Kyle Love, who had started two games last year, this week to add to the interior pressure. While that gives Carolina another pass rusher, its also something for the Falcons to consider.Theyre a very aggressive front, so every chance we get were going to have to attack, Quinn said.It will be the third matchup against a NFC South foe this season for the Falcons, who lost their only previous home game to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Quinn said the early schedule of divisional opponents heightened the importance of these games.Another chance for us (now) at home with our crowd here, he said.It suddenly looks like a crucial game for the Panthers, whove lost three of their last five regular-season games dating to last season. Carolina had its perfect season halted last December in Atlanta after winning its first 14 games on the way to winning the NFC championship.Im trying to get to 2-2, Newton said. Last year is over with.The Falcons also arent putting much emphasis on what happened almost nine months ago.Each week and each season to me is new, Quinn said. The important part of us is that we recognize this as a division game.For Carolina, the Falcons are its most-played opponent, with Atlanta leading the series 25-17. This seasons rematch wont come until Christmas Eve. ' ' '

CINCINNATI -- No rest for weary Xavier. Rick Porcello Jersey .Less than 72 hours after a sloppy 84-81 victory over Lehigh in their regular season home opener, the 11th-ranked Musketeers must hop right back in the saddle.With senior guard Myles Davis suspended and forward Kaiser Gates recovering from knee surgery, XU isnt nearly as deep as its been in recent years. That showed up on Friday when Patriot League favorite Lehigh pushed them until the final buzzer.The Musketeers, who host Buffalo on Monday night at 7 p.m. at Cintas Center, began the season with only eight scholarship players.Its no secret right now, we dont have a ton of depth, said head coach Chris Mack.Xaviers options still are better than many teams in the country.On Friday, Trevon Bluiett scored a career-high 25 points with 11 rebounds and three assists. Edmond Sumner added a personal-best 24 points and Sean OMara tied a career-high with 10 points.But, Mack wasnt pleased with Bluietts defensive effort or Sumners ball handling, given he committed six of the teams 17 turnovers which helped spark Lehighs upset bid.Some of the mistakes we made were inexcusable down the stretch, Mack said. Its inexcusable. We have to correct those. We turn the page quickly and play Buffalo on Monday. Mack said hed wait until after Mondays game to respond when asked if its better to get back on the court barely two days after Fridays performance or if hed prefer to get some practice time in.The Musketeers are in a learning curve early in the season but still talented enough to be picked second in the Big East Conference behind defending national champion Villanova.Buffalo is dealing with its own depth issues heading into Mondays game which is the first meeting between the two teams.The Bulls defeated Niagara 76-66 on Friday night despite playing without top guard C.J. Massinburg whos out indefinitely with mononucleosis.Were a little thin in the backcourt without C.J., head coach Nate Oats told the Buffalo News.Monday marks the second game for senior wing Blake Hamilton who returned after being out six weeks with a broken bone in his left hand. He scored 11 points on Friday.Backup forward David Kadiri is day to day with a knee injury.As for Davis status with Xavier, it was unchanged as of Friday.Earlier this week, Davis, who averaged nearly 11 points and led the team in assists last season, pleaded guilty to one charge of disorderly conduct involving damage to his ex-girlfriends property. Mack said Davis would have to earn his way back on to the team.The Musketeers certainly could use him. At one point in Fridays game, Xavier had two freshman and four first-year players on the court at once.This isnt the same Xavier team which went 28-6 and earned a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament. By March, its likely that talent will mesh, but for now XU is a work in progress. On Friday, Lehighs bench outscored Xaviers 23-7.Its not algebra, said Mack. You look down (the bench), there isnt a lot of options, theres maybe two or three. Bill Lee Jersey . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

Air Max 90 Womens Canada.On the heels of the biggest weekend of upsets in 31 years, in which three undefeated, top-four teams lost, the committee kept two of those teams -- Michigan and Clemson -- in its top four. Ohio State claimed the fourth spot, as it rose from No. 5 to No. 2, one spot behind No. 1 Alabama and ahead of the No. 3 Wolverines and No. 4 Tigers.The committee stayed consistent with its regard for head-to-head wins by keeping Clemson a notch above No. 5 Louisville in spite of the Tigers home loss to an unranked Pitt team. The committee went against the grain from both the Associated Press Top 25 and the Amway Coaches Poll, which ranked Louisville No. 3 and Clemson No. 5, stirring the debate of the week.Strength of schedule -- or lack thereof -- was likely a major factor in Washingtons drop from No. 4 to No. 6 this week.

Because the Big Ten champ (assuming its either Ohio State or Michigan in this case) is in a semifinal, the Rose Bowl would choose the next-highest ranked Big Ten team, which would be No. 7 Wisconsin.The Allstate Sugar Bowl is guaranteed the Big 12 champ, which would be No. 9 Oklahoma, but because SEC champ Alabama is in the semifinal, it would take the next-highest SEC team, No. 15 Auburn.The Capital One Orange Bowl is guaranteed the ACC champion, but because Clemson is in a semifinal, it would take the next team, which would be No. 5 Louisville. The Orange Bowl then chooses the next-highest ranked team from the SEC, Big Ten or Notre Dame. In this case, that would be No. 8 Penn State.The highest-ranked Group of 5 champion is guaranteed a spot in a New Years Six Bowl, so No. 20 Boise State would go to the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic. The Cotton Bowl would then get the highest-ranked at-large team, which would be No. 10 Colorado.Heres what the New Years Six could look like, based on todays rankings:Dec. 308 p.m. ET: Capital One Orange Bowl: No. 5 Louisville vs. No. 8 Penn StateDec. 313 p.m. or 7 p.m.: College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl: No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 4 Clemson3 p.m. or 7 p.m.: College Football Playoff Semifinal at the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl: No. 2 Ohio State vs. No. 3 MichiganJan. 21 p.m. ET: Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic: No. 10 Colorado vs. No. 20 Boise State5 p.m. ET: Rose Bowl Game Presented by Northwestern Mutual: No. 7 Wisconsin vs. No. 6 Washington8:30 p.m. ET: Allstate Sugar Bowl: No. 9 Oklahoma vs. No. 15 Auburn Nike Air Max Tailwind 7 Canada.
