Rich Franklin is shooting for the stars with his idea for one final fight in the UFC. Anders Lee Jersey . With one bout left on his contract, the teacher-turned-fighter is quite enthusiastic about the possibility of completing the trilogy with former middleweight champion Anderson Silva and even beating him for the first time. "Would I fight Anderson a third time? Absolutely," Franklin said on Submission Radio on Monday. "Is it because I feel like I have some unfinished business? Not at all. Its just, in my mind as a champion and to have the mentality of a champion I 100 per cent, wholeheartedly believe that I can beat Anderson in a fight." Franklin has lost to Silva in each of their two previous matchups, both via TKO by way of knees. In the first contest at UFC 64, Franklin lost the Middleweight Championship in what was the beginning of Silvas record reign with the title. But Franklin has been long since removed from his tussles with Silva. Since his second loss to the Brazilian at UFC 77 in October 2007, Franklin went on to face a slew of top talent. He beat Wanderlei Silva twice and Chuck Liddel once, but fell to veterans Dan Henderson, Forrest Griffin and Cung Le along the way. He has not fought since his knockout defeat by Le in November 2012. But Franklin says none of that matters. To him, the matchup seems a favourable one. "It wouldnt be for any reason like redemption or vengeance or retribution or any other kinda cool word that weve seen on a UFC poster before, but yeah I would fight him and I believe I could beat him." The water on the Silva subject is muddy right now though. After breaking his leg in his most recent bout with now Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman, the 39-year-old has ruled himself out for the entire year and isnt expected back until 2015. As for Franklin, who would be 40 by the time the bout could happen, he doesnt think Silva is down for the count just yet. "Id look for him (Silva) to return and Id look for him to hunt for the title again at some point in time," says Franklin. "Well just see if he can get there." Nick Leddy Jersey . - Bryan Price sat down in the cushy chair. Billy Smith Jersey .

HOUSTON -- After scoring six runs in the last four games, Houstons offence went on a homer spree. Sonny Milano Jersey . Chris Carter, Jason Castro, Marc Krauss and Matt Dominguez each hit a home run as the Houston Astros snapped a five-game skid with a 7-3 win over the Oakland Athletics on Monday night. Carter hit a monstrous three-run shot to centre field in the third to give the Astros a lead, and Castro and Krauss went back-to-back in the sixth, with Castros homer a two-run shot. Krauss homer found the upper deck in right field and chased As starter Jesse Chavez (8-7). Two batters later, Dominguez sent a drive onto the railroad tracks in left field off reliever Dan Otero. "Weve been going through our offensive woes and, again, to see the middle of the lineup swing the bat the way they swung it tonight was exciting," Houston manager Bo Porter said. The last time Houston hit three home runs in an inning was June 5, 2013, against Baltimore. The Astros were coming off a three-game sweep at the hands of Miami. "Its just nice to see that after we struggled against the Marlins to score runs," Carter said. "Its nice to see the offence come around like that." Houston starter Brett Oberholtzer (3-7) won for the first time since May 30, giving up three runs and eight hits with two strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings. "For me and Castro, it was the same game plan," Oberholtzer said. "Just attack them, throw the ball in and stay away from the big innings." Chavez allowed a season-high six runs and five hits with five strikeouts in 5 1-3 innings. "I thought he was throwing the ball really well, real similar to how he did last time out," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. "I think the Carter at-bat affected the way things went from there." The three home runs allowed were a career high. Chavez had allowed three home runs in his last 11 starts combined. "To sum up the whole day, it was three pitches and one walk," Chavez said. "That cant happen when you have the lead, and its something that has been my Achilles heel, giving back the runs they get for me and not being able to get through six." Stephen Vogt had two hits, including a solo home run in the third into the upper deck in right to give the As a 2-0 lead. Jed Lowrie and Josh Donaldson each added two hits for Oakland. Derek Norris gave the As a 1-0 lead in the second with an RBI single, and Yoenis Cespedes tied it at 3 with a sacrifice fly in the fifth. ON DECK Athletics: Right-hander Jeff Samardzija, who is 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA in four starts since being acquired July 5 from the Cubs, will start Tuesday against the Astros in the second game of the three-game series. Astros: Right-hander Scott Feldman, who is 4-8 with a 4.60 ERA, will try to bounce back Tuesday after one of his worst starts of the season, giving up six runs in 5 1-3 innings in a 13-1 loss at Oakland Thursday. TRAINERS ROOM Athletics: Outfielder Craig Gentry was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a broken right hand, and the As promoted OF Billy Burns from Double-A Midland. Gentry was injured Sunday at Texas after being hit by a pitch. Astros: Right-hander Josh Zeid, who is on the disabled list with swelling near the left big toe, is going to see a specialist Tuesday and hopes to avoid surgery. ALTUVE IS STREAKING Houston second baseman Jose Altuve extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a single in the third inning. Altuve, who leads the Majors with 149 hits, had a season-high hitting streak of 12 games from May 8-21. REDDICK SHOWS OFF GLOVE Josh Reddick flashed the leather twice in the seventh. Enrique Hernandez led off with a sharp liner to right, but Reddick ran it down in the corner, keeping the ball from hitting the top of the fence. Altuve followed with another hard-hit ball that was about to fall in. Reddick dived forward to make another highlight-reel play. Zach Werenski Jersey . -- Kael Mouillierat scored three times and set up one more as the St. Zac Dalpe Jersey . Carcillo was a little of both for New York in Game 3. Derek Stepan, Martin St. Louis, Dan Girardi and Carcillo scored goals, leading the Rangers to a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.West Ham carried too many passengers in their 4-1 home defeat to Swansea on Saturday, according to manager Slaven Bilic. The Hammers were comprehensively defeated in the penultimate match to be played at Upton Park before the clubs move to the Olympic Stadium. Wayne Routledge, Andre Ayew, Ki Sung-yueng and Bafetimbi Gomis all netted for Swansea, with Stephen Kingsleys own goal the only reply West Ham could muster. The defeat also brought West Hams 15-match unbeaten home record to an end - a run that stretched back to August - and Bilic feels his side can have few complaints about the result.  They were better and they deserved to win. What went wrong? In the most basic situations we were second best, we had too many passengers, we were slow in the reaction and losing the ball in dangerous situations, he said.  Andre Ayew netted in Swanseas comprehensive victory at Upton Park We had too many passengers, we were second best and relying on other people to stop them. We were not compact without the ball, we were not good on second balls.When we had the ball, we were good, we put them under pressure, we were creating and we were passing the ball. Okay, we didnt have thee final product, but we were good. Gabriel Carlsson Jersey. The defensive transition is the key and the biggest reason that we lost the game. Bilic added: When they scored, it was a little bit of shock for us and then we tried to react, but they scored another one.In the second-half, you can turn it around, weve done it a couple of times this season and it is quite common in the Premier League. But it depends if you are going to score the first one or they are going to score the third one. They scored the third one and it was not all over, but they basically put it to bed. West Ham will play their final ever match at Upton Park on Tuesday night when they take on Manchester United, live on Sky Sports 1 HD.When asked about that game, Bilic said: It should be a very memorable night, but we have to be better than today, definitely.

Atlanta led 71-69 before New Orleans scored 42 points in the final period. The Pelicans took the lead with a 12-0 run that began at the end of the third quarter. Davis led the scoring but Luke Babbitt and Austin Rivers combined for 15 points off the bench in the fourth quarter. "Guys stepped up -- Luke, Austin -- and thats were going to need when guys go down," Davis said. New Orleans guard Eric Gordon did not return after leaving the game in the first quarter. Coach Monty Williams said Gordons tendinitis in his left knee flared up. Williams said he hopes Gordon can play on Saturday against Miami. Tyreke Evans had 21 points for New Orleans, which completed a two-game sweep of the season series. Davis set career highs with 40 points and 20 rebounds in New Orleans 121-120 overtime win over Boston on Sunday and then missed a loss to Toronto on Wednesday with a respiratory infection.

Atlanta used an 11-0 run, including seven points by Teague, to take its big lead at 67-60 in the third quarter. Babbitt entered the game late in the third quarter and made a 3-pointer to start the 12-0 run. He opened the final period with another 3-pointer to give the Pelicans the lead. A steal and jam by Davis capped the run which left New Orleans with a 78-71 lead. "At the end of the third quarter and the start of the fourth quarter, our defence didnt execute," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said.

Davis added to the lead, grabbing a rebound of a miss by Babbitt with his right hand and jamming the ball on the same motion. New Orleans outscored Atlanta 43-27 from the free-throw line.

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings have assigned forwards Patrick Eaves and Luke Glendening to Grand Rapids of the AHL. Milwaukee Bucks Jerseys . The 29-year-old Eaves has played in only three games with the Red Wings this season, averaging 9:14 of ice time after a knee injury in the preseason. The Red Wings put Eaves on waivers Thursday, giving teams a day to claim him. Coach Mike Babcock said then that the Red Wings were hoping Eaves would get a chance to play regularly for another team. Detroit signed Eaves to a $3.6 million, three-year contract in 2011 after giving him one-year deals in 2009 and 2010. The 24-year-old Glendening has played eight games with the Red Wings this season, averaging 9:28 of ice time. John Henson Jersey . The San Angelo, Texas product, who was a high school and college quarterback sensation in the Lone Star State, will start his first CFL game with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (9-4) on Friday at Mosaic Stadium against the leagues top team, the Calgary Stampeders (11-2). Malcolm Brogdon Jersey .

Despite their recent hardship, the Horned Frogs own a 14-6 record. Unfortunately, their league ledger sits at 1-6, with their lone Big 12 win coming over another struggling squad in Texas Tech on Jan. 17. TCU has lost six of its last seven games overall, and is 2-2 in true road tilts this season. Iowa State is coming off a huge win as it slipped past the Texas Longhorns at home last Monday, 89-86. The triumph improved the Cyclones to 15-4 overall and 5-2 in conference, the latter of which has them tied for second place with West Virginia entering the weekend. ISU is a perfect 11-0 at home this season. The series between these two teams is knotted at 5-5, but Iowa State has won the last four meetings after losing the previous five. TCU hasnt won in Ames since 1982. Kyan Anderson scored 17 points, Trey Zeigler posted a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds, and Chris Washburn grabbed a dozen boards, but those efforts went for naught as TCU dropped a tough 64-61 decision to visiting Kansas earlier in the week. The Frogs shot just 30.6 percent from the floor, missed 10 of their 12 3-point tries, and went just 15-of-29 at the free-throw line. They won the battle on the boards, 50-40, but allowed the Jayhawks to knock down 46.2 percent of their total shots. Anderrson is the only player on the roster averaging double digits at the moment, as he nets 13. Tony Snell Jersey. 9 ppg for a TCU squad that puts up 70.7 ppg. Balance is the key for the Horned Frogs as six others produce at least 5.8 ppg. Well that, and tough defense as foes are permitted just 57.6 ppg in hitting a mere 35.7 percent of their field goal attempts, which includes a 30.9 percent showing from beyond the arc. A +6.6 rebounding differential has certainly helped the teams overall cause. Iowa State shot a sizzling 54.7 percent from the field and had five players score in double figures in the recent win over Texas. Georges Niang led the way with 19 points, while Bryce Dejean-Jones added 18, Jameel McKay 14, Monte Morris 13 and Dustin Hogue 11 for the Cyclones, who lost the rebounding battle (39-29), but more than made up for it by logging a 25-10 edge in points from the foul line. Both teams took very good care of the basketball, combining for only 14 turnovers. At present, six players are averaging in excess of 10 ppg, with Niang pacing the group with 14.8 ppg. As a result, Iowa State is netting a robust 80.2 ppg behind typical shooting efforts of .487 overall and .348 from 3-point land. The team owns narrow advantages in both rebounding (+1.4) and turnovers (+2.3), but limits the opposition to 68.7 ppg as they connect on 41.5 percent of their total shots. Foes have also done an impressive job at the charity stripe, converting 77 percent of their free throws. Cheap Ducks Jerseys Cheap Coyotes Jerseys Cheap Bruins Jerseys Cheap Sabres Jerseys Cheap Flames Jerseys Cheap Hurricanes Jerseys Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys Cheap Avalanche Jerseys Cheap Blue Jackets JerseysCheap Stars Jerseys Cheap Red Wings Jerseys Cheap Oilers Jerseys Cheap Florida Panthers Jerseys Cheap Los Angeles Kings Jerseys Cheap Wild Jerseys ' ' '

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Becky Sauerbrunn Jersey . -- Despite being only two games above .500 and facing a 6.5-game deficit against first-place Detroit, the Kansas City Royals believe they have their rivals right where they want them. Judging by recent history, maybe they do. A five-run seventh inning keyed by Omar Infantes two-run single and an RBI double from Eric Hosmer enabled the Royals to avoid a demoralizing four-game sweep against the Tigers on Sunday. It also brought to mind the league-best 33-20 mark they logged last season after stumbling into the All-Star break on a five-game losing streak. "Were eight games better than we were at this time last year," manager Ned Yost said. "And were a second-half team. Weve always been a second-half team." Exactly why they seem to play better after the break, no one seems to know. "Im not sure," designated hitter Billy Butler said. "The seasons long, It wears on guys as they get older. Were young. And sometimes I think as guys get older ... I dont know." But he does know last years second-half surge makes this years challenge seem less daunting. "Were just better the second half. Its our track record and were starting to count on it." Four of the seventh-inning runs were charged to Justin Verlander (8-8), who started the inning with a two-hit shutout but loaded the bases on three straight singles. "Things were going well for us and we ran into the seventh," said Verlander, who lost for just the fifth time in 15 decisions in Kauffman Stadium. "A couple of balls fell in the right spots and Im out of the ballgame. They were able to find some spots." Since June 18 when K.C. beat the Tigers for their 10th straight win and went a season-best seven games over .500, the Royals have gone 9-14 while the Tigers went 17-6. Verlander gave up six hits in 6 1/3 innings, struck out three and walked one. Yordano Ventura (7-7) pitched 1 2/3 innings in his first career relief appearance and got the win. He allowed one hit and struck out three for the Royals, who beat the Tigers for only the first time in seven tries this year at home. Greg Holland pitched a perfect ninth for his 25th save in 26 opportunities. After Raul Ibanez loaded the bases in the seventh with a single that snapped a 0-for-25 skid, Alcides Escobar brought in a run with a slow-rolling infield single that second baseman Ian Kinsler failed to pick up cleanly. A second run then scored on Jarrod Dysons fielders choice. Ian Krol replaced Verlander and after intentionally walking pinch hitter Salvador Perez, gave up a two-run single to Omar Infante that made it 4-2. "I waited for that pitch and made good contact," Infante said. Hosmers double stretched his career-best hitting streak to 13 games. Rajai Davis and Austin Jackson opened the third with back-to-back singles and the Tigers took a 2-0 lead on Miguel Cabreras sacrifice fly and a two-out bloop single by J.D. Martinez, which fell in between shortstop Escobar and left fielder Ibanez as Jackson came around from first. NOTES: Jackson proved a perfect leadoff hitter in this series, starting all four games with a base hit, three singles and a double. ... Martinez made two nifty running catches in the right-field corner. Martinez was also 3 for 4. ... These were the only home games for the Royals during a 19-game stretch that began on June 30 and runs through July 23. ... The Royals, Dodgers, Yankees and Mariners are the only major league teams with losing records at home and winning marks on the road. ... All nine of Detroits hits were singles. Carli Lloyd Jersey . Messis 75th-minute goal answered some of the criticism the clubs all-time leading scorer had received for his lacklustre performances in the teams recent losses in the league, Champions League and Copa del Rey final. Mallory Pugh Jersey . The Earthquakes (6-9-7) were coming off a 5-0 loss at home last Saturday to FC Dallas. Even with the draw, the Sounders (13-7-3) climbed back into a tie for both the Western Conference and overall top spot in MLS. Seattle, West co-leader Real Salt Lake and East leader Sporting Kansas City all have 42 points.PHILADELPHIA -- Rajon Rondo is starting to feel like his old self -- and the Boston Celtics are starting to win again. Rondo had eight points, 11 assists and nine rebounds in his eighth game back from a serious knee injury, and Jeff Green scored 17 of his 36 points in the third quarter in the Celtics 114-108 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. "Its only a matter of time before we got on the same page," Green said about Rondo. "He puts me in my spots, gets it to me in the open floor. He sees the floor very well. Hes helping me get into a good rhythm. I have to continue to make sure I get open for him." Jared Sullinger had 19 points and 10 rebounds for Boston. The Celtics improved to 17-33, winning their second straight game after losing 19 of 22. Rondo had 19 points and 10 assists in Bostons win over Orlando on Sunday. "Im getting back to my old self," Rondo said. "Im not there yet but Ill take the progress." Brandon Bass had 18 points for the Celtics, 2-6 since Rondos return. Thaddeus Young had 20 points, and Tony Wroten added 18 for Philadelphia. The 76ers (15-35) have lost four straight and 14 of their last 17 games. They also have lost six in a row at home for the first time since the 1996-97 season. Spencer Hawes added 13 points and 13 rebounds for Philadelphia and Lavoy Allen had 10 points and 10 rebounds. Sixers coach Brett Brown noticed the difference in the Celtics with an effective Rondo. "Hes their compass," Brown said. "Hes a great point guard and a leader." Green scored 13 straight points during a 2-minute stretch in the third quarter, capped by a 3-pointer that gave the Celtics their biggest lead to that point, 83-71 with 3:44 left. Boston coach Brad Stevens credited Rondo for helping Green succeed. "He made a lot of shots and Rondo found him a couple of times early," Stevens said. "His job is simplified with Rajon out there. Christen Press Jersey. He pushed the tempo better than Ive seen him in the first eight games. He got us a lot of good looks. His greatest strength is he makes everyone else better and thats really shown true the last two games." Said Rondo: "Everybody needs easy buckets, especially a guy (Green) whos that talented and athletic. All he needs to do is see it go through a couple of times, get to the free-throw line. He gets hot quick." Wroten made a 58-footer at the buzzer to cut it to 88-82 entering the fourth. Philadelphia got as close as three points in the final quarter on Wrotens two free throws with 8:35 left but never got closer. The Sixers had a chance to get it to two points, but Evan Turner missed a baseline jumper with 1:13 left, and Sullinger converted a three-point play on the ensuing possession off an assist from Rondo with 59.4 seconds left to give Boston a 112-105 advantage. "He made a ton of good decisions and some huge plays late," Stevens said about Rondo. The Boston point guard, who is still getting into game shape, also got some help from his teammates. After going down at one point, Bass resuscitated a winded Rondo. "Nothing was wrong," Rondo said. "I was winded. He brought me back to life a little bit. Those guys pick me up. Whoever hits the floor helps each other up. Were a team and thats what they did on that particular play." The Sixers havent won since last Wednesdays buzzer-beating 95-94 win at Boston. Notes: Philadelphia guard Michael Carter-Williams was selected the Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for January. It was the second honour for Carter-Williams, who also was recognized in November to join Allen Iverson as the only Sixers to earn the award multiple times. Carter-Williams averaged 16.5 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists last month. ...

Kaetlyn Osmond and her Canadian teammates are assured of at least a silver medal in the inaugural team figure skating event at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Allen Iverson Jersey .  Osmond, of Marystown, N.L., fell in the middle of her routine and placed fifth in the ladies free skate at Iceberg Skating Palace (110.73 points), but that was all the Canadians needed after a strong performance by Kevin Reynolds in the mens free earlier Sunday. Reynolds scored 167.92, after replacing Patrick Chan who was third in the mens short program Thursday. Russia is guaranteed the gold medal after a sensational skate by teenage phenom Yulia Lipnitskaya, who pleased the partisan crowd and dominated her competition with a first-place score of 141.51. The Americans locked up bronze after a phenomenal performance by Gracie Gold, who was replacing Ashley Wagner (who competed in the short program). Golds score of 129.38 was good enough for second in the event. Italys Valentina Marchei (112.51) and Akiko Suzuki (112.33) of Japan, were fourth and fifth, respectively. Russias 67 points made it mathematically impossible for Canada (56 points) to take them down in the ice dance free, in which Americans Charlie White and Meryl Davis set a world record with a score of 114.34. Reigning Olympic champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada placed second (107.56).       Joe Smith Jersey . Louis Cardinals have agreed to a one-year contract. Grant Long Jersey . It was the most lopsided loss in Lakers history. Darren Collison had a team-high 24 points while starting at shooting guard for the injured Jamal Crawford. Chris Paul added 13 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, who apparently are trying to make up for decades of humiliation at the hands of the Lakers all in one season; theyve won the last two meetings by a combined 84 points.Jacksonville Jaguars fan Hamish Shilliday took the spotlight to make two of the teams sixth round picks in the NFL Draft. Shilliday had Londons Tower Bridge as his back drop as he announced University of Montana defensive end Tyrone Holmes as the teams opening sixth round selection.The 29-year-old, from Birmingham, had been due to announce Jacksonvilles fifth round pick, but the franchise traded it on Friday to move up in the second round and select linebacker Myles Jack. It was absolutely brilliant to play my part in the Draft, he said. I will obviously be keeping a close eye on Holmes career and when he goes on to become a superstar Ill be able to say it was me who introduced him to the NFL - that would be incredible.I didnt really have any nerves to be honest. It was just really exciting to be involved and I had a fantastic time with the Jaguars team and cant thank them enough for the opportunity.Ive been a fan of the Jags for such a long time. I think the Draft picks by the team this year have been brilliant and I cant wait to see them come and play in London in October.Shilliday was joined by defensive tackle Michael Bennett to make the pick, or picks as it turned out, with Bennett having been selected from London in last years Draft when it was the first time a pick announcement had been made outside the United States. Mateen Cleaves Jersey. Bennett was on hand to join in with the naming of Arkansas quarterback Brandon Allen with the 26th pick in the sixth round.He said: It is a lot less stressful being on the other side this year around. Waiting for that phone to ring was one of the most nerve racking experiences of my life but the feeling when I was selected was the best.It is great to be here in London, where it all began for me, and its fantastic to be able to include our fans in the UK in occasions like this. They are just an awesome part of the Jaguars so I hope by including them in things like this they will keep doing what theyre doing.

Metairie, LA - New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton confirmed Wednesday that the club has signed veteran kicker Shayne Graham as a replacement for Garrett Hartley. Phoenix Suns Jerseys . Hartley missed two field goals in Sundays 27-16 loss at St. Louis, dropping his conversion rate to a career-low 73.3 percent (22-for-30) this season. The 27-year-old joined the Saints in the middle of the 2008 campaign and his tenure with the club was highlighted by three kicks of more than 40 yards during Super Bowl XLIV, helping New Orleans beat the Indianapolis Colts. Graham, 36, made 31-of-38 kicks for the Houston Texans last year. The former Pro Bowl selection has converted 85.4 percent of his field goal attempts in 12 career seasons. The Saints also waived cornerback Chris Carr and signed safety Eric Frampton. Penny Hardaway Jersey . MacIntyre stopped 49 shots and the Marlies defeated the Texas Stars 5-1 in Game 1 of the American Hockey Leagues Western Conference final. "I felt in control, so that was nice," MacIntyre said. Charles Barkley Jersey .Y. - Phil Varone was the lone scorer in the shootout as the Rochester Americans edged the Toronto Marlies 3-2 on Sunday in American Hockey League action.ST. PETERSBURG – To say Sergio Santos is struggling would be an understatement. To suggest a mutual parting of the ways between the Blue Jays and their former closer after two and a half injury-interrupted seasons would be right on the mark. After the 31-year-old laboured through the seventh of Saturdays 10-3 loss to the Rays, an inning in which he gave up two runs on three hits and two walks to spike his season ERA to 7.78, Santos suggested hes having difficulty getting into a groove due a lack of consistent game action. "Its just kind of, to get that slider was a little tough today," said Santos. "I dont know if it has to do with not getting as much work in the last couple of weeks as I would have liked but thats part of the game as well." Santos time in Toronto has been a grind. Acquired from the White Sox for pitcher Nestor Molina before the 2012 season, he was supposed to be the Blue Jays closer for years to come. There was reason to believe. Santos had authored a 30-save campaign for Chicago in 2011, his second season in the big leagues after converting to pitcher from shortstop, the position he played when the Jays had him in their system in the mid-2000s. However, a shoulder injury in April, 2012, turned out to be season ending when it required surgery. Two weeks into the 2013 season, Santos went down with a triceps strain and a month later underwent a procedure to clean bone spurs out of his elbow. Santos was terrific upon his return in the final two months of the year, making 24 of his 29 appearances and allowing earned runs in only three of them. This year, Santos went to the disabled list after a May 9 appearance with a forearm strain. He returned on June 17 and after six-straight scoreless appearances (5 1/3 innings), hes been hit hard in his last four outings, allowing five earned runs in just 2 1/3 innings. He insisted its not a matter of confidence. "Not so much that," said Santos. "Once you get in the flow of the game and you get there consistently its a lot easier to kind of have those pitches. When you dont its just tough because you can throw as many flat grounds and bullpens as you want but theres nothing like a game situation." Santos wants the ball more and feels thats the only way hell harness a slider that, when Santos is commanding the pitch, is as nasty as any in the game. On the other hand, manager John Gibbons cant be blamed for using Santos in mop up duty. Until a relief pitcher proves he can perform in relatively non-pressure situations, hes unlikely to be handed the ball with the game on the line. Santos did rack up five saves to start the year when Casey Janssen was down with an oblique strain but he blew his next three, including on that frigid night in Minneapolis when the bullpen allowed six runs on just one hit, an otherworldly eight walks and three wild pitches in the eighth inning of a loss to the Twins. Santos hasnt been the same since. Its believed general manager Alex Anthopoulos is facing the same budgetary pressures he did during the quiet offseason. There is a need to upgrade the bullpen. There is a need to acquire an infielder. While the club has been pleasantly surprised by the performance of its starting corps, there isnt a team in baseball that wouldnt upgrade its rotation if presented with the right deal. Santos makes $3.75-million, the final guaranteed year of a deal that includes three consecutive cllub options ($6-million in 2014; $8-million in 2015; $8. Shaquille ONeal Jersey. 75-million in 2016). Given the strange nature of relievers, how they can go from underachievers to consistent performers and vice versa in the blink of an eye, Santos could be of use to another team with playoff aspirations. He has the stuff. He also has a salary that, if moved, would help to facilitate a dollar in-dollar out deal. Anthopoulos talks often about getting "creative" in trade talks. This one seems rather obvious. McGowan explains Friday meltdown Dustin McGowan has generally been very good since returning to the Blue Jays bullpen on May 18. In 22 relief appearances, the 32-year-old has posted an ERA of 2.86 and an opponents OPS of .605. Hes allowed earned runs in only three appearances. Yet the perception of McGowan is changing, somewhat, because his two biggest meltdowns have happened recently and theyve both been ugly. On June 28 against the White Sox, it took McGowan one pitch to erase what had been 6 2/3 innings of scoreless work by Marcus Stroman. He hung a slider to Dayan Viciedo, who hit a three-run home run to turn a 2-0 Jays lead into a 3-2 deficit, from which Toronto wouldnt recover. Fast forward to Friday night, with four scoreless appearances (four innings) in between, McGowan entered the game in the seventh inning with a 5-2 lead. He walked Evan Longoria on a full count. He walked James Loney on five pitches. That brought up right-handed hitting Sean Rodriguez, who on the third pitch in a 1-1 count slammed a game-tying home run. Just like the pitch to Viciedo, it was a cement-mixer slider. "It seems to be my nemesis right now, the hanging slider," said McGowan. "Ive got to fix that." In advance of the home run, McGowan was up with his fastball and at other times wide. He was bouncing his slider but the Rays wouldnt offer. He knew in the bullpen he was in for a battle. "Getting loose I was a little erratic, too" said McGowan. "For me, sometimes, its different coming from the pen to the mound, usually you can lock in on a hitter. Its just one of those games where I couldnt find anything." While McGowan admitted the sting of failure more than once in a brief period can affect confidence, he vowed the next time a crucial situation called for a slider, hell throw it. It doesnt hurt the psyche when the team bounces back and wins, as the Jays did with three runs in the ninth for an 8-5 final score. "That made it a lot better," said McGowan. "If we had lost the game it would have been really hard on me but we came back and won the game, the guys battled back and that made it a lot easier." Kawasaki okay Munenori Kawasaki wasnt in Saturdays starting lineup after feeling hamstring tightness the night before. Approached by TSN.ca, Kawasaki announced his availability. "No problem," said Kawasaki. "I play today." Kawasakis hit .289 in 23 games since rejoining the club on June 17. Hes proven an adequate defender at second base. "Just cramps," said Kawasaki. "Just cramps. I play today, no problem." Reimold not okay Nolan Reimold also was injured in Friday nights game and the news on the recently acquired outfielder isnt as good. An MRI revealed a left calf strain. Reimold was placed on the 15-day disabled list. Anthony Gose was recalled to take Reimolds place. Cheap Ducks Jerseys Cheap Coyotes Jerseys Cheap Bruins JerseysCheap Sabres Jerseys Cheap Flames Jerseys Cheap Hurricanes Jerseys Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys Cheap Avalanche Jerseys Cheap Blue Jackets Jerseys Cheap Stars Jerseys Cheap Red Wings Jerseys Cheap Oilers Jerseys Cheap Florida Panthers Jerseys Cheap Los Angeles Kings Jerseys Cheap Wild Jerseys ' ' '

TORONTO - Amir Johnson has never been one to sulk over playing time. Jon Casey Jersey . Whether starting or coming off the bench, Johnson has always accepted his role in stride, part of whats made him the Raptors unsung hero for the better part of the last three seasons. His body language spoke louder than words on Sunday, both before and after his teams 112-98 loss to the Nuggets, their third straight defeat at home. An hour before tip-off a subdued Johnson sat alone in front of his locker. Playing a racing game on his phone - with the volume turned up - he knew what everyone else would find out 50 minutes later. For the first time since Mar. 23, a span of 27 games, Johnson would come off the bench with Tyler Hansbrough replacing him in the Raptors starting five. Dwane Casey had hinted a lineup change could be on its way after practice the day prior but the Raptors coach kept his cards close to his vest during his pre-game availability, with the Nuggets withholding the status of starter Kenneth Faried. Following a couple slow starts in back-to-back defeats at home, the shakeup was not a surprise. "Weve been talking about it, a few days back," Johnson said, despondent after the game. A man of few words. While Johnson was held scoreless in 14 uninspiring minutes as a reserve - an uncharacteristic minus-16 on the afternoon - the change seemed to spark his team out of the gate. Along with Jonas Valanciunas, Hansbrough set the tone for the Raptors, who took an early 15-point lead thanks in large part to Torontos energy and physical work on the boards. However, that lead shrunk in a hurry as both teams went to their second units. The Nuggets - a team assembled, at least in part by Raptors GM Masai Ujiri - dominated the final 36 minutes with their superior depth, exploiting the deficiencies in Torontos shallow roster. "Masai did too good of a job of putting that group together," Casey joked before the game. The Nuggets and their new coach Brian Shaw went 10 players deep, six of them scoring in double figures, including four off the bench. "Our bench has got to give us something," Casey maintained after Denvers subs scored 72 points, an opponent record against the Raptors. "Our (starters) cant play for 48 (minutes), so weve got to get production from the bench." "The guys coming in have got to develop a toughness, a resilience of getting stops and it starts on the defensive end. Thats where our problems started in the second half. They shot well but we didnt make them feel us and thats the difference." As a team, the Nuggets shot 65 per cent in the second half and their bench went 17-for-23 from the field. Johnson - now a member of the Raptors second unit that managed just 16 points on Sunday - has not been himself this season, to his own admission. "No, Ive been on and off," he responded, asked if his early-season play has met his standards. "I mean thats why we made the change in the lineup," Casey said in agreement. "Just to give us some energy, give (Johnson) a chance to recharge a little bit, refresh a little bit, refocus a little bit." Even after Sundays game, Johnson is a plus-20 this season - the teams second best mark - shooting 54 per cent from the field, tops on the Raptors. Still, his effort and consequently his impact has been inconsistent following a career season last year. At times Casey has questioned the forwards focus. "Everybodys been through some rough times," said Rudy Gay, who had a team-high 23 points on 10-of-23 shooting in the loss. "Ive been through it… and hes going through it now." "Everybodys going to go through it at some point in their career and this is the time hes been going through it. But I have all confidence in Amir. Hes going to be great, hes going to be the same Amir we know he can be." Frustration boiling over The Raptors have now dropped three straight and five of their last six games at home, prompting a sensible question; is frustration beginning to get the best of them? "It should hurt," Casey insisted. "But the teams that we played against, if you looked at the schedule before the season started, how many of them would we have been favoured (in)? But thats no excuse because we put ourselves in a position (to win) in each of these games and even in this one in the first half. I dont see frustration." DeMar DeRozan didnt mince words, expressing his frustration after the loss. "Me personally, Im frustrated period," he exclaimed after scoring 17 points in defeat. "Just losing, I mean I hate it, I hate it with a passion." "I mean were right there. Were the ones doing it. Nobodys making us miss our coverages or nothing like that. Its on us. We show it in spurts, weve just got to be more consistent with it." Rare third-quarter touches for Valanciunas Coming into Sundays contest, Jonas Valanciunas had scored 71 points on 57 shots in first quarters this season, tallying just 60 points on 58 shots in the other three quarters combined. The sophomore was utilized more consistently against a smaller Denver team and he responded with one of his better performances of the campaign. "I thought he had a (good) matchup with those guys so we made it a focal point of getting him the ball in the paint," Casey said of Valanciunas, who had a double-double of 18 points and 11 rebounds in 36 minutes of action. "He did an excellent job of getting to where he wanted to go." Valanciunas had four points on seven shots in the first frame, a quarter the Raptors won, also taking seven shots and scoring eight in the third, their next best quarter. As Toronto got steamrolled in the fourth, Valanciunas attempted just one field goal in over nine minutes. If the Raptors hope to diversify their offence, which has largely been centred on Gay and DeRozan, they must find ways to incorporate their centre more consistently, a task thats easier said than done given the teams personnel and the sophomores continued development on both ends of the floor. Up next After winning one of four games during their season-long home stand, the Raptors travel west next week. Their first stop is in Oakland to face the Golden State Warriors. Jason Spezza Jersey .

ANAHEIM -- A former Cy Young Award winner likely will pitch with his career on the line when the Los Angeles Angels and the Texas Rangers meet Tuesday night at Angel Stadium. Cheap Jerseys Free Shpping .Right-hander Tim Lincecum, once the mainstay of the San Francisco Giants rotation, will face the Rangers Kyle Lohse with his spot in the rotation -- and perhaps on the roster -- in jeopardy.Lincecum, who won two Cy Young Awards while helping the Giants win three World Series, underwent hip surgery in September and had not pitched in 11 months when the Angels signed him May 20 to bolster their beleaguered rotation. His season debut followed a script that screenwriters for the Hallmark Channel could have produced.At the O.co Coliseum in Oakland on June 18, Lincecum earned a 7-1 victory over the Athletics in his first appearance since June 27, 2015. The right-hander threw six innings and allowed one run, two walks and four hits while adding two strikeouts.Since then, however, the fairy tale has turned ugly.Not only has Lincecum failed to win any of his four ensuing starts but the former ace has pitched just 17 2/3 innings and failed to last longer than 5 2/3 innings during any single appearance. During that stretch, the right-hander permitted four home runs among the 34 hits he allowed and compiled a 9.17 earned-run average.With left-hander Tyler Skaggs close to returning after missing nearly two years because of Tommy John surgery, Lincecum has little margin for error.I think for any player on a major league field, its performance based, Angels manager Mike Scioscia told MLB.com. He needs to perform well, and nobody is immune to that. But we have a lot of confidence that he is going to do what he needs to do to be one of those five guys who are going to give us a chance to win games as a starting pitcher.Lohse finds himself in a similar situation. After going 5-13 with a 5.85 ERA for the Milwaukee Brewers last year, Lohse languished on the free-agent market until May 13, when he signed a minor league contract with the Rangers. The right-hander made 10 starts at Triple-A Round Rock before being promoted to make his season debut July 9.But in that game against the Minnesota Twins, Lohse surrendered six runs on nine hits while throwing 99 pitches in just five innings. Worse, Lohse sustained a mild strain in his right oblique muscle that forced him to begin an immediate program of accelerated recovery.I didnt have that fun of an All-Star break, doing two-a-day treatments to see how good we can get this thing going quickly, Lohse told MLB.com. It didnt feel like it was going to be something short. But we have been making progress every day.That progress culminated Saturday, when Lohse threw a bullpen session before the Rangers game against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field and felt no ill effects.I came out of the bullpen session feeling good with minimal soreness, Lohse told MLB.com. We did a lot of work on it and feel good where its at.Had Lohse been unable to pitch Tuesday night, right-hander Nick Martinez would have been recalled from Round Rock to make the start. Martinez had been optioned July 8 but made one start for the Express, making him eligible to return quickly. Cheap Jerseys Online .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one.

The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12. http://www.cheapjerseysgoodquality.com/ . PETERSBURG, Fla. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Dustin Pedroia hit his fourth career grand slam to help Rick Porcello get his major league-leading 22nd win, and the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-4 Saturday night for their 10th consecutive win.Boston maintained a 5 1/2-game lead over Toronto for the division title and lowered its magic number for a playoff berth to one.Pedroia stopped an 0-for-17 skid with a single in the sixth and gave Boston a 6-3 lead with a seventh-inning drive off Danny Farquhar.Porcello (22-4) gave up three runs, eight hits and struck out nine over 6 1/3 innings. He just missed getting his 12th consecutive start of seven or more innings and three runs or fewer, which would have moved him past Cy Young (1904) and Pedro Martinez (2000) for the longest stretch during the same season in franchise history.Craig Kimbrel, the fifth Boston reliever, reached 30 saves for the sixth straight season despite allowing Logan Forsythes solo homer in the ninth.Brad Miller hit a two-run double in a three-run second that put Tampa Bay up 3-1 and gave him 80 RBI.Tampa Bay threatened in the second but failed to score due to two nice defensive plays. Pedroia made a throw from just in front of the outfield grass at second base on Mikie Mahtooks grounder to get Corey Dickerson at the plate. Third baseman Brrock Holt made a solid play along the line on Alexei Ramirezs grounder and threw him out at first to end the inning.ddddddddddddTRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: Manager John Farrell didnt rule out 3B Pablo Sandoval (left shoulder) from coming back this year if an injury replacement is required in the postseason. .
