CLEVELAND - Kyrie Irving managed to find a silver lining - and a sliver of hope for the Cavaliers playoff chances - while dealing with his latest injury. The All-Star point guard will miss at least two weeks with a strained biceps tendon, but hes hopeful his season is not over. Irving said following shootaround Tuesday at the Cleveland Clinic Courts, "If you could take a positive from the situation, obviously that would be one, that at this point, I dont have to get surgery, which is tremendous." Clevelands leading scorer got hurt Sunday night in a loss against the Los Angeles Clippers. An MRI taken Monday revealed the string, but not a tear, which would have ended Irvings season. Its still not a certainty hell be back, but the Cavs will rest him for two weeks before making any decisions. Cooper Kupp Rams Jersey. -- Pelicans coach Monty Williams does not expect guard Eric Gordon to play in any of New Orleans final five games this season. Samson Ebukam Womens Jersey. Patty Mills scored 15 points, Tim Duncan had 10 points and 11 rebounds in limited minutes, and San Antonio trailed for only 11 seconds late in the first quarter of a 103-90 victory over Portland on Wednesday night. http://www.authenticramsfansclub.com/Black-Friday-Cooper-Kupp-Jersey/. The Brazilian-born strikers brace drew him level with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo as the leagues leading scorers with 17 goals apiece through 16 rounds. "The important thing is to help the team win, not the goals," Diego Costa said. After a first half dominated by defence, Atletico pressed Valencia into its area and Diego Costa did the rest. Gerald Everett Womens Jersey.Derrick Rose scored 23 points, and the Bulls pulled away from the Nets for a 105-80 victory on Wednesday night. Chicago held Brooklyn to 29 points on 26. Josh Reynolds Youth Jersey. 1 Pete Sampras. Speaking ahead of an exhibition match against Andre Agassi in London on March 3, Sampras said on a conference call Wednesday that he is impressed by Federers longevity.TEMPE, Ariz. -- Mike Trout has his first seven-figure contract. Up ahead is what figures to be a nine-figure deal. "It feels good," Trout said Wednesday after agreeing to a $1 million, one-year contract with the Los Angeles Angels. The salary is the highest for a one-year major league contract for a player not yet eligible for arbitration who wasnt coming to the big leagues from Japan or Cuba or wasnt required to have a larger amount because of the maximum cut rule. Ryan Howard earned $900,000 with Philadelphia in 2007 and Albert Pujols with St. Louis in 2003. Trout will become eligible for arbitration after this season and could become a free agent after the 2017 World Series. The sides are thought to be discussing an agreement through 2020 in the $150 million range. Trout wouldnt talk about the possibility of a multiyear contract. "I just go out there to play the game," he said. "If the money is where its at, thats where its going to be." By agreeing to a one-year contract now with the 22-year-old, the Angels avoid having a long-term deal count toward their 2014 luxury tax payroll. "Its a landmark to do a $1 million with a two-plus player," Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said. "I think its fitting and Mikes earned that and were glad to provide that for him." Trout was voted AL Rookie of the Year and finished second iin MVP voting in 2012, when he hit .dddddddddddd326 with 30 homers and 83 RBIs, and led the majors with 129 runs and 49 steals. He was second again to Detroits Miguel Cabrera in MVP voting last year, when he batted .323 with a .432 on-base percentage, 27 homers, 97 RBIs and 33 steals. "We thought his performance was exceptional," Dipoto said. "There are players that force you to break rules. What he did for two consecutive years forced us to break our own rule. His performance certainly merited us to do differently than any of the others." Trout had a $482,500 salary as a rookie and earned a $10,000 bonus for winning Rookie of the Year. The Angels renewed his contract last year for $510,000 -- just $20,000 above the major league minimum at the time. "The Angels could have easily just done the same thing that they did last year," Trout said. "It makes you feel good inside. It makes you feel like they really want you here. It means a lot to me." NOTES: Because of the maximum cut rule, some players not eligible for arbitration have had higher salaries. Shortstop Jose Iglesias agreed to a deal with Detroit in January that pays $1.65 million while in the major leagues and $1,237,500 while in the minors. The major league base represents the maximum 20 per cent cut from the average of the $8.25 million, four-year deal he completed.

Sky Sports F1s Anthony Davidson offers in-depth analysis of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosbergs final-lap collision at the Austrian GP. With Rosberg leading the race heading into Turn Two, Hamilton attempted a move around the outside of his Mercedes team-mate but the duo made contact and the world champion was forced off the track.The German came off worse from the crash, however, and Davidson was puzzled as to why Rosberg - who was later handed a ten-second penalty by the race stewards - didnt try to make the corner. Hamilton takes Austria win off RosbergHamilton had rapidly gained on the other W07 after Rosberg clipped the kerb at Turn One and his eventual race victory cut the gap in the Drivers Championship to just 11 points.Toto Wolff said that Rosberg was suffering with a brake issue but said the crash, Mercedes second of the season following the first-lap Spanish GP incident, was brainless. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg collide on the last lap of the Austrian GP giving Hamilton the lead and Rosberg a broken wing. Davidson says: The fact he runs past the apex means Rosberg probably has got a brake issue, but Im watching the hands on the wheel as well and its clear to see that even if youre running out wide, he doesnt really even attempt to make the corner.He puts about a half degree steering angle on and the two make contact, and then he goes on the full lock.From Lewiss on-board, when he is in the braking zone, he leaves enough of a cars space on the inside, so I can see why theyve called Nico up to the stewards.

Cheap Orioles Jerseys.C. Now hes squarely in the U.S. capital and helping the Washington Wizards playoff drive. John Wall scored 33 points, Gooden got 11 of his 21 in the final quarter and the Wizards overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit for a 101-94 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night. Cheap MLB Jerseys. City, fielding a depleted team having already qualified, was twice pegged back by the plucky Czech champions but substitute Negredo tapped home in the 78th minute and Dzekos header made sure of victory in the 89th. The result kept City three points behind Bayern Munich ahead of their meeting in Germany in two weeks.Even with the benefit of a later deadline, Team Canada general manager Steve Yzerman and his staff have less than a month to decide on their roster for the Sochi Olympics. A week could still make plenty of difference in the long run. Now Canada has until Jan. 7 to name its 25-man group with injury replacements still possible. Another week might not make a huge difference in the case of Tampa Bay Lightning star Steven Stamkos, who is rehabbing from a broken right tibia. It would make all the sense in the world for Team Canada to name Stamkos to its initial roster in case he can return by early-to-mid-February. Where the extra time could really come into play is in helping some players heal up and others show that slow starts dont matter as much as hot streaks. There might not be room for the hottest Canadian-born player in the NHL come early January, but one or two spots being determined by whos on a roll isnt out of the question. Claude Giroux of the Philadelphia Flyers would be well served to pick up his offensive production, even though his rebound from a poor start (five goals and 15 assists in 29 games) has him back in the conversation. Problem for Giroux is, as Dallas Stars coach and Canada assistant Lindy Ruff said, the list of players who could make it is still "pretty long." No one has forced himself into that conversation more so than the Stars Jamie Benn. Playing left wing on the top line alongside Tyler Seguin has brought out the best in Benn, who wasnt invited to Team Canadas Olympic orientation camp in August. Benn said last week in Toronto he naturally used that as motivation, and Ruff said the converted centre was playing "like a possessed player" this season. Benn has seven goals and 19 assists in 28 games, second to only Chris Kunitz of the Pittsburgh Penguins among Canadian left-wingers. Who comes out to make room for Benn might not even be a matter of that player disappointing as much as a numbers game. Kunitzs numbers could have him in the conversation on their own, but his chemistry with Sidney Crosby cant be overlooked. Patrick Sharp of the Chicago Blackhawks brings versatility and the ability to play all three forward positions, but its easy to see him getting bumped at the last minute - or making it only if Stamkos cant go.dddddddddddd Rick Nash of the New York Rangers didnt make the last projection while he was out with a concussion. Assuming he stays healthy through early January, Nash is a strong bet to sew up a spot, in this case knocking out Milan Lucic of the Boston Bruins. Jeff Carter of the Los Angeles Kings just returned from an extended absence with a foot injury, so its tough to gauge his candidacy at this point. Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks getting off to such a wicked start helps when Yzerman and Co. look at pure scorers, but it wouldnt hurt to have another one around, especially with Stamkoss status uncertain. On defence, Marc Staals neck injury and what New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault called "symptoms," could ensure he doesnt make it to Sochi to play with brother Eric, who should be a lock after picking up his production. Staal could be the fourth-best left-handed option Team Canada has behind Chicagos Duncan Keith, Jay Bouwmeester of the St. Louis Blues and sneaky-good Marc-Edouard Vlasic of the San Jose Sharks, but that might not be enough because of the depth of righties. Assuming Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators doesnt experience lingering problems from taking a puck to the face, Alex Pietrangelo of the Blues keeps up his impressive play and Drew Doughty of the Los Angeles Kings stays healthy, the top three on the right side is set. Dan Boyle of the Sharks could be a good veteran to take for his work on the power play, while risk-reward case P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens might prove too good not to take. That would mean three lefties and five righties, but with the ability to dress seven defencemen there was already going to be some imbalance. The place where theres no real fluidity might be in goal. Montreals Carey Price has a 1.95 goals-against average and .938 save percentage and could be called Team Canadas presumptive No. 1 goaltender. Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks (2.34, .916) doesnt have numbers that jump off the page, but he did win gold in 2010 and has the edge over goalies like Mike Smith of the Phoenix Coyotes and Corey Crawford of the Chicago Blackhawks because of that and his body of work.

Richards missed the conversion but the hosts had a useful 16-0 lead. Rovers fought back through a converted try by former Dragon Larroyer, following good work by Iain Thorney. Ken Sio added the extras.However, the Dragons had the final say before the break, scoring two further tries through Louis Anderson - who latched onto Tony Gigots short pass - and Gigot, who supported an Anderson break up the middle of the field.Gigots try was converted by Richards, who added a further penalty to make it 28-6 to the home side at the turnaround.Both sides squandered opportunities to score after the interval - but Rovers did narrow the deficit in the 63rd minute, with Wardill scoring in the right corner. Sio was unsuccessful with the conversion attempt.The hosts were further clear when Gigot scored 10 minutes from time, touching down Justin Horos smart tap back from behind the dead ball line.

Layman also pulled down a team-high 12 rebounds for the Terrapins (17-2, 5-1 Big Ten), who have won three straight.

Branden Dawson paced Michigan State with 14 points and 10 rebounds and Matt Costello chipped in 12 points. Both teams had trouble ramping up the offense during Marylands win in East Lansing. The Terps led 17-14 at the half in that one, but their offense appeared to be much more fluent on Saturday thanks to Trimble and Layman. The Spartans got out to a 10-5 lead after Costello and Dawson each contributed four points to an 8-0 run. Laymaan then scored the final seven points of a 9-0 spurt for Maryland as it regained control.dddddddddddd Trimble got it going shortly thereafter, scoring 13 straight for the Terps -- including three consecutive 3-pointers -- to help them grab a 27-16 advantage. He closed the half with a vicious crossover of Lourawls Nairn Jr., followed by a 3-pointer that sent Maryland into the locker room with a 40-26 lead. Trimble did not get on the scoresheet in the second until the 11-minute mark, but his trey gave the Terps a 60-40 lead. The Spartans could not generate much offense against Marylands stingy defense as the Terps claimed the season sweep of their new Big Ten rival. Game Notes Trimble went 5-of-7 from beyond the arc in the first half ... The Spartans were limited to 3-of-17 shooting from 3-point range ... Maryland scored 20 points off 12 Michigan State turnovers ... The Spartans had a 38-20 edge in the paint.

He said Brown was dead when firefighters arrived. Cheap Mavericks Jerseys.J. -- Patrick Sharp is on one of those streaks.The Winnipeg Jets have now won three straight under new head coach Paul Maurice. The first period was scoreless with the Jets outshooting the Oilers 11-8, and both Ilya Bryzgalov and Ondrej Pavelec making a number of very good saves. The Oilers opened the scoring in the second period on a power play goal from Jordan Eberle, his 16th of the year. After the game Maurice commented on the goal, saying he wanted lefthanded Olli Jokinen to take the faceoff to the left of the Jets net, but Jokinen was not available due to a broken skate lace. On the game, Jokinen won 76 per cent of his faceoffs, winning 13 of 17. After the goal, the Jets dominated the remainder of the period but could not find the tying goal. Jets outshot Edmonton 13-8 in the second. The Jets started the third period on a power play but on this day, the power play that had scored five goals in the last four games went zero for five. But special teams did play a part in the third, as Jacob Trouba would tie the game with a shorthanded tap in goal at 5:48. The goal was Troubas first career shorthanded goal, with Bryan Little extending his point streak to four with an assist. Little is 2-4-6 over the four games. The goal came just over two minutes after Pavelec made a great save off Eberle, who went in alone but was stopped as he tried to go to the backhand. At 10:37, Mark Scheifele gave the Jets their first lead of the day with the nicest goal of the afternoon. Scheifele worked the puck out of the corner, withstood a couple of hits and buried his own rebound with a backhand shot for his ninth goal of the season and his first career goal on home ice. Blake Wheeler and Eric ODell drew assists with ODell moving onto that line in the third period with the Jets down a goal. Scheifele now has three goals and seven points in his last six games, and is 7-11-18 in his last 20 games. It appeared the goal would be the winner until the Oilers caught a bit oof a break.dddddddddddd. A puck in the Jets end headed for Zach Bogosian went off the officials skate, and ended up at the point where a Jeff Petry shot was deflected by David Perron to the tie the game with two minutes left in regulation. It was Perrons 18th of the year. Jets outshot the Oilers 13-5 in the third. The overtime ended with a great effort by Wheeler, who attacked the Oiler zone with speed, had Bryzgalov down and out only to have the puck hit the side of the net. Wheeler stayed with it, and set up Trouba for his second tap-in goal of the afternoon to end it. It was Troubas first ever overtime goal and his first career two-goal game. For Wheeler, it was back to back two-point games. Final shots were 39-22 in favour of the Jets. Jets are now 3-1 in games that end in overtime and 8-5 overall in extra time games. Trouba finished a plus two, with five shots on goal in 23:32 of ice time. Zach Bogosian led the team at 25:42, Scheifele led the team in shots on goal with six. Pavelec has now won three straight games for the first time since mid-November. "The effort and intensity were good, so it was a big win for us," said Maurice after the game. "The puck wasnt easy for us, lots of deflected passes. There were things wed like to have done better but I liked our bench, I liked the fact we got better as the game went on." He again liked the play of Scheifele and Trouba. "They are good players with good instincts. I really liked the way Scheifele scored his goal. Took two hits to score. I think the difference between the first two periods and the third was our energy level. Weve got this building and its a bit of a powder keg." So its three straight wins for the Jets but the team will be put to the test this week with road games in Anaheim and San Jose (both on TSN Jets and TSN 1290), then a home game Saturday vs Toronto and into Chicago on Sunday.

Eden Prairie, MN - Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph was struck in the calf by a stray bullet while at a downtown Minneapolis bar following the teams preseason game on Friday. The Vikings announced that Joseph sustained only minor injuries from the incident, which took place at the 400 SoundBar club after the teams 10-6 win over the Oakland Raiders. The offseason acquisition was released from a local hospital shortly after receiving treatment and is expected to rejoin the team later this week. According to the Star-Tribune, multiple people were wounded -- two seriously -- by an unknown gunman that fired several shots around 1:50 a.m. CT on Saturday morning. "The entire Vikings organization is extremely thankful that Linval was not seriously hurt, and our thoughts are with all of the victims of this shooting," the team said in a statement. "The team will defer any further comment to the Minneapolis Police Department during its ongoing investigation." Joseph signed a five-year, $31.5 million contract with the Vikings in March after spending four seasons with the New York Giants. The 25-year-old produced nine sacks while starting 46 games for New York over the last three seasons and was a member of the Giants Super Bowl XLVI champion team in 2011.

"Im very pleased to be able to add a quarterback with Adrians experience and skill set," Calgary head coach and general manager John Hufnagel said in a statement.IRVING, Texas -- Natalie Gulbis plays with tape wrapped around her achy left wrist. She has an appointment with a specialist next week to finally figure out what is causing the pain she has dealt with for much of the season. In the meantime, Gulbis is contending for her first LPGA Tour victory in seven years. Gulbis was tied with Texan Stacy Lewis at 7-under 135, putting the Americans a stroke behind leaders Meena Lee of South Korea and Caroline Masson of Germany after two rounds in the North Texas LPGA Shootout. With a 65 on Friday, Gulbis had her first sub-70 round this year. "I havent played a lot this year, and I havent played very well in the events Ive played in, so it felt really good to get a good round in the 60s and to get around making some birdies," Gulbis said. "It felt more like how I played at the end of last year, which I hadnt seen yet this year." Masson, who led after the first two rounds of the inaugural North Texas event last year before tying for 15th, had five birdies and a bogey for her second 67. Lewis, the No. 3 player in the world, had a bogey-free 64 to match Lee for the best second-round score at Las Colinas Country Club. Lewis had four consecutive birdies before finishing with seven straight pars, and Lee played her first nine holes -- the back nine -- without a par. "I didnt really do anything really crazy different from yesterday other than I putted a lot better, but just played really solid," said Lewis, who had her sixth runner-up finish last week in San Francisco since winning the Womens British Open in August. " I felt nice and relaxed out there, so it was a nice day." After her round, Lewis was headed to hit some balls with her 3-year-old nephew wearing a shirt that read, "My aunt is a better golfer than yours." In the last five LPGA events, Gulbis has a 67th-place finish while missing three cuts and withdrawing from the Hawaii tournament two weeks ago. The newlywed has completed only 17 rounds this season while dealing with the baalky wrist.dddddddddddd "I had a really great off-season. I had a lot of time to work on my game and I felt really good coming into the season, and then I got hurt in like the second or third event of the year and took some time off, so thats been a bummer," Gulbis said. "But I had a really nice off-season, so Ive been trying to fall back on the work that my coach and I did." Christiana Kim (69) was alone in fifth at 6 under, one stroke better than first-round leader Suzann Pettersen (71) and four other players. Pettersen had a birdie at the par-5 third hole before consecutive bogeys and then a steady string of pars until a closing birdie. "I gave myself a lot of good looks for birdies, just couldnt make much. Good conditions," said Pettersen, in her only second tournament since missing a month with more back issues. "All good, no complaints." Also at 5 under were Julieta Granada (66), Dewi Claire Schreefel (66), Cristie Kerr (70) and Dori Carter (70). Lee, who won the last of her two LPGA Tour titles in 2006, started Friday with an eagle-3 on the 510-yard 10th hole. She followed with a bogey, consecutive birdies, another bogey, three birdies in a row and then a bogey on the par-5 18th. Her scorecard for the front nine was much cleaner, with birdies on Nos. 3-5 and only pars aside from that. She started the tournament Thursday with a double bogey on the very first hole. "Im happy to be done with the second round. Im really happy," said Lee, who has her best 36-hole score this season. Top-ranked Inbee Park, the defending champ in North Texas, was 3 under after a 68. Michelle Wie was 2 under after rounds of 67 and 73. She won the Hawaii tournament. Lexi Thompson, the 19-year-old American playing for the first time since become a major champion the first weekend in April, followed her opening 70 with a 71 to reach 1 under. Seventy-four players made the cut, which was 2 over. There will be a second cut after Saturdays third round to the top 50 and ties.

Danny Rose agrees with former England striker Alan Shearer that the national team have become a laughing stock and has backed Mauricio Pochettino to one day take over the national side. Former England captain Shearer said the country had hit a new low following Sam Allardyces exit after just one game in charge following allegations he discussed how to circumvent rules on player transfers while speaking to undercover Daily Telegraph reporters. Tottenham defender Rose trained under Englands interim manager Gareth Southgate on Tuesday ahead of their World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia, and the left-back admitted Shearer was right to label the current set-up a joke. I saw Alan Shearer say English football has become a laughing stock and its hard to say but I agree a bit with a manager losing his job after one game, he said.Its not good in any sense and whatever stance the FA take after the four games (under Southgate), I hope the next England manager will be one for the long term and help us to improve a bit in tournaments.When Roy Hodgson lost his job, we were all there together. It was a sad experience for me because we all knew at the time and we saw Roys face at the time. Wayne Rooney explains why Marcus Rashford will go on to be one of the biggest names in football Theres only so much stick a manager can take and there has to be a point where the players look at themselves and say its not good enough. With Sam, it came from nowhere. I was just thinking who will it be now?.I dont want to say its a mess, but its not nice for English football.Everyone, the players, the manager and all the staff, weve got to take it on ourselves to try to lift the opinion of English football over the next few games - starting with a positive performance on Saturday against Malta and then another positive performance against Slovenia. Rose revealed he has been in conversation with Allardyce since his departure from the England role and insisted the former West Ham and Sunderland boss had a positive impact during his time in charge. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just ?£6.99. No contract. Ive managed to speak to him since he left. I dont know the full ins and outs of what has happened but I still wish him the very best for the future - and I told him that when I spoke to him, said Rose.I texted him, sent a message, thanked him for including me in his first England squad and allowing me to earn another cap for England and told him that I was sorry hed lost his job and wished him the best for the future.He was brilliant when he was there. It was only a week to 10 days (with the players) but he was such a good laugh, really approachable and he allowed us to play as well.He texted me back and said it was a good battle between me and Raheem on Sunday after the Man City game. Mauricio Pochettino would be amazing as England manager, says Rose Rose also backed his Spurs manager Pochettino to become England manager in the future, despite recently signing a new five-year deal at White Hart Lane.It would be amazing to have him as England manager one day, said Rose.What hes done for Tottenham is clear for everyone to see, with the squad hes built, and that would only be good for English football if that was ever to be the case.

TSN Baseball Insider Steve Phillips answers three questions each week. This week, topics cover the World Series, the departure of Jim Leyland, and the age-old question about pitchers doctoring the ball. 1. With two games played so far in the World Series, who do you think has been the most impressive player on each team? So far in this World series we have seen some sloppy baseball. In the first inning of Game 1 we saw second base umpire Dana Demuth absolutely botch a call. The Cards committed three errors in Game 1 as well. Plus two Gold Glovers in Adam Wainwright and Yadier Molina let a pop-up fall in between them for a hit. It was embarrassing. But not to be outdone the Red Sox gave away Game 2 with shoddy defence when reliever Craig Breslow launched a throw down the left field line allowing what turned out to be the winning run to score. Despite the sloppy play we have seen some excellence as well. For the Cardinals Michael Wacha has really stood out throughout the playoffs. He is 4-0 with a 1.00 ERA. He was the NLCS MVP. He had an 18-inning scoreless streak. He has thrown 27 innings in the playoffs and struck out 28 batters all while only giving up 11 hits. He held the Dodgers scoreless twice and held the Pirates to a single hit. But of his four post-season starts his Game 2 performance on Thursday night was the best for me. He only went six innings and needed 114 pitches to get through it. He gave up two runs and walked four batters. By the numbers, not all that impressive. When he left the game after six innings he slammed his fist and glove in anger and disappointment. I love it! Here is a 22 year-old kid mad that he held the Red Sox to only two runs in the World Series and he was mad at himself. The Sox are the most patient and productive lineup in all of baseball. They chew up young pitchers and spit them out. Wacha had to work. He had to grind. He battled and scratched and clawed. He didnt have his best stuff yet he had his best heart. This kid is a winner. I cant wait to see him pitch again in Game 6. On the Red Sox side of things, David Ortiz is the story. He has long been respected as a great clutch hitter. He is adding to his legacy so far in the Series. It was his big grand slam against the Tigers that helped the Sox win Game 2 of the ALCS. In Game 1 of the World Series Ortiz nearly had another grand slam but was robbed by a great Carlos Beltran catch. He still got an RBI as the runner tagged from third. He had two more hits in the game including a home run against a young power-armed lefty named Kevin Siegrist. Joe Buck, the announcer on Fox, said that Siegrist had developed into a shutdown lefty as the pitch was going to the plate. Ortiz deposited that pitch over the wall. So much for being a shutdown lefty. In Game 2 Ortiz slammed a two-run shot off of the unhittable Michael Wacha that at the time gave the Sox a 2-1 lead. Ortiz has a flair for the dramatic. He thrives in critical situations. He looks huge in the batters box. His presence is overwhelming. Ortiz is a Hall of Famer in my book. He wont likely get elected early on as he has some ties to PEDs going back to the initial testing in 2003. He was reportedly one of the 103 players that tested positive that year. All I know is that with the game on the line I want him at the plate. 2. With Jim Leyland stepping down in Detroit, which open managerial job do you think is more appealing, the Tigers or the Washington Nationals? Jim Leyland has stepped down after eight very successful years in Detroit and will serve as a special assistant to the General Manager next year. Davey Johnson will serve in a similar capacity for the Nationals as well. These are the two best managerial positions available this off-season. Both teams have owners committed to winning. They have been willing to spend money on both major league talent as well as premium amateur talent. Ownership commitment is critical for managers as they want to know there is money available for off-season acquisitions as well as in-season additions when necessary. The Tigers (93-69) are built to win now. They have put together a team that has made the ALCS in three consecutive years. They have depth and balance on their roster. It is a roster consisting of primarily veteran players with a few youngster sprinkled in. They have arguably the best pitcher in the AL in Justin Verlander and the best position player as well in Miguel Cabrera. That is an amazing starting point around which to build a team. There is no one who can truly protect Cabrera in a lineup but Prince Fielder is about as scary a presence as you can have in the on-deck circle. The offence underperformed at times this year but there is a strong offensive foundation. Detroit also has starting pitching depth with impact arms. Max Scherzer and Verlander are as good a dynamic duo as there is in baseball. This team has two weaknesses: they are not a great defensive team particularly because of Cabrera and Fielder on the corners of the infield and they lack a dominant closer. The Nationals (86-76) were a bit of a disappointment this year after winning 98 games in 2012. The pitching was good but not great. Many of the young pitchers who were so dominant last year struggled at times this season. This includes both the starting rotation as well as the bullpen. Offensively they scuffled to score runs for the majority of the season. Washington lacks a middle of the lineup force. Ryan Zimmerman is a good player but he does not strike fear in the opposition. Plus they need a table setter at the top of the order. Injuries were certainly a part of that but so was inconsistency of production. The Nationals do have two great young stars: Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg have the potential to be MVP and Cy Young award winners respectively. That certainly bodes well for the future of the Nats both short term and long term. Both the NL Central and AL Central are winnable divisions. The Indians are a nice young team but feel like a second place club to the Tigers. The Royals, Twins and White Sox are wannabes and not on the same level as Detroit. In the NL East the Mets and Marlins are still rebuilding and the Phils are trying to figure out what they are. The Braves are a good team but something seems to be missing with them. The Nats beat them before and they can do it again. Dave Dombrowski is a much more experienced and successful general manager than Mike Rizzo in Washington. Rizzo is good but Dombrowski is one of the best. These are both good jobs. But the Detroit job is better. The Tigers have a better team with better management in a more winnable division. It sounds like Matt Williams is getting the Nationals job. He has no managerial experience but he has been a coach for the Diamondbacks since 2010. Take the Nats job off the board. The Tigers job is still there though. Heck, I am from Detroit, maybe I will apply for it. 3. There was enough speculation about Jon Lester doctoring the ball in Game 1, that MLB released a statement saying there was no conclusive evidence of Lester doing anything untoward. How common do you think doctoring the ball is in the game right now? Jon Lester clearly had something in his glove when he threw a gem against the Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series. It was lime green in color and quite honestly I have never see a substance that color in a glove. He said it was a "booger." Of course, he was kidding. He was a bit elusive about it but his manager John Farrell cleared it up. It was "rosin", said Farrell. A Cardinals minor leaguer sent out a Vine video which showed Lester dabbing the green spot before throwing the ball. I truly believe that Lester was only trying to grip the ball and not deface it. Lester was not trying to put some foreign substance on it to get it to move more. He was trying to get a better grip on a cold night. Gaylord Perry is in the Hall of Fame and he was an admitted cheater. His use of the spitball is celebrated. It is fun and funny for some reason. I am sure there are a few pitchers out there today who try to deface the ball with Vaseline or spit. There are a few who probably try and scuff the ball to get it to move more. But with all of the different camera angles today it has become very difficult to get away with much of anything. Ironically, seven years ago, Tigers pitcher Kenny Rogers was thought to be using pine tar on his hand to help throw his breaking balls against the Cards in the World Series. When the telecast highlighted the dark spot on his hand, Rogers washed it off. By far the vast majority of pitchers today who are using rosin or pine tar do so only for grip and not to deceive the hitter with additional movement. On a cool night a pitchers hand can become slick and smooth. I know a few of the pitchers on my team back in the day who used pine tar as well. They argued that the use of it made it safer for the hitter because the pitcher had better grip and there was less of a risk of a pitch slipping and hitting a batter. Fair or Foul Major League Baseball will be a little bit less next year than this year. Jim Leyland announced his retirement from managing. He will assume a role in the Detroits front office advising David Dombrowski, the President and GM of the Tigers. The game will miss Leyland. He managed 3,499 games in his career with four different teams (Pittsburgh, Florida, Colorado and Detroit). He won a World Series in 1997 with the Florida Marlins. He was a three-time manager of the year. One of the best things about being a broadcaster is getting to visit with managers before the games. It has taught me that there is no perfect manager or managerial style. They all have their own personalities and set of strengths and weaknesses. Over the years several managers made quite an impression on me. Tony LaRussa was the manager that you really had to think along with during the game. You knew he was always going to try and do something to impact the game from the dugout. He would hit and run or pull off a suicide squeeze. He would bat the pitcher eighth instead of ninth in the order. He always kept you thinking and guessing. Bobby Cox was his players biggest supporter and cheerleader. It amazed me how a man of nearly 70 years of age so easily related to 20-something athletes. A player once told me that he could be 0-for-20 at the plate but Bobby would cheer him on like he was 15-for-20. The player said anytime he made a mistake Bobby accepted responsibility for not putting the player in the right spot to succeed. Guys loved playing for Cox. When it comes to Leyland, he is one of the best communicators ever. Communication is as important or more important than actual game management. It is people that play the game, not robots or numbers. How a player feels impacts how he plays. The environment in the clubhouse and dugout affects what happens on the field. Jim Leylands words make an impact. He speaks in statements. In fact he speaks in Leylandisms. If it happens in baseball he has thought about it and has an intelligent perspective that he shares in a simple way. Every single time I covered a Tigers game I was struck by the fact that when Jim speaks his players listen. How do I know that? Before a game telecast I always go down to the managers office or dugout as he addresses the media. Then I steal a few private moments with the manager to ask a few game-specific questions. Then I go and mingle with the players to further some angles for the game. When I have spoken to the Tigers players I have been amazed by what I have heard. The players speak in "Leylandisms." His words get repeated back to me by the players. No other managers players have ever done that to me. In addition to this, despite his gruff Marlboro Man exterior Leyland is a big softie. We have seen him get emotional at press conferences multiple times. He cries for his players and for the city of Detroit. He calls an ailing friend in the game several times a day to check in with him. Through all of my personal turmoil he has been a supportive friend in the game as well. He always takes my call or returns my call or text. He always ends our interaction with a positive comment of support. I am very grateful for that. Baseball will miss Jim Leyland and so will I. Jake Elliott Jersey. After the loss, White refused to make good on the bet, instead offering Hoyt tickets to a Bears game. Jake Elliott Youth Jersey. -- Isaiah Pead took a stutter step forward, then raced to the left sideline and travelled 60 yards up the field before finally getting tripped up by a leg tackle. http://www.footballbengalsnflstore.com/Youth-Joe-Mixon-Elite-Jersey/. Team officials travelled to Los Angeles on Thursday night to meet with the free agent, a person with knowledge of the plans said. Carl Lawson Womens Jersey.J. - Percy Harvin is ready to go, and theres no question in his mind hell be playing Sunday. Josh Malone Womens Jersey. The former world No. 1 Djokovic, who is the top seed here despite being ranked No. 2, snuck past 35-year-old Czech showman Radek Stepanek in four high- quality sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-5), on Centre Court. Djokovic appeared relieved when he converted on his first match point by swatting a cross-court forehand winner that just caught the line to end an affair that featured only two service breaks.Superman is a team-first super hero. When the Saskatchewan Roughriders Geroy Simon made CFL history, he actually looked disappointed. He didnt celebrate, he didnt sprint to the sideline and hand the ball to an equipment man for safe keeping, and he didnt get mobbed by teammates. The game wasnt stopped and there were no presentations made at centrefield. It was second down and ten when Simon caught the 1,018 catch of his illustrious career and he was tackled three yards short of a first down. At the time, the Riders were trailing and there was still work to do and the game was more important to the CFLs most productive receiver. That team-first, game-first attitude just may be the number one reason why Simon has been so consistent and so productive for so many years. When asked about how he felt when he made the historic catch he said, "during the game I was frustrated, we werent playing very well and we were trying to win a football game, the game was more important." The former Maryland Terrapin also did not want the game stopped and informed the CFL head office that he didnt want any presentation made while the game was going on, due to what he experienced last year when he became the all-time leader in receiving yards. While he was honoured in 2012, the league and at the time the BC Lions, wanted to recognize his achievement and stopped the game to allow Geroy to address the home crowd. But he felt the break in the action caused him to temporarily lose his focus. "Last year when they stopped the game I felt like it threw our team off a bit and after I had to take the mic and talk to the crowd I felt like it threw everything off for me." Simon went on to say, "I just want to play and win the game." Dont get Simon wrong; he is very proud of his accomplishments and appreciates the fact that the league, the teams he has played for, and the fans want to recognize those achievements. He just doesnt want it to effect his teams chance to win a football game. The debate as to who is the best receiver in CFL history will go on forever and will be tailored to a football fans personal bias. A Stamps fan may make the argument for Allen Pitts, while a Bomber fan will say that Milt Stegal is the best all timee.dddddddddddd What is not debatable, however, is who is the most productive receiver in the over 100 year history of the Canadian Football League. Simon is most proud of the fact that these records have also coincided with winning football teams. He is a two time Grey Cup Champion and said its the combination of the numbers and the wins that matters most. "The fact that I have put up numbers like that means I have been consistent and productive over all those years but it is the production plus the winning that is what really matters." There is one other mark on the horizon. With one more 100 yard game, Simon will tie Allen Pitts who currently holds the league record with 64 in his career. But when asked about yet another record, Simon would not waiver from his team-first approach when he said, "again it means I have produced but what is most important to me is that if I get 100 yards receiving our team probably has a better chance to win and that is what I care about." Friday night, Geroy Simons new team - the Saskatchewan Roughriders - are in Vancouver to take on the Lions in a game that has huge playoff implications in the west and when it comes to home field advantage in the postseason. The Lions have said that they will recognize Simons record with a mention on the big screen. Even though the majority of Geroys catches were made as a member of the BC Lions, there will be no plaque presentation or special ceremony. The Lions have said he is a Rider now and they will acknowledge the accomplishment and move on because their focus is the game and Geroy now plays for the enemy. Simon wouldnt want it any other way. When he heard how the Lions are going to handle the CFL record set by their former receiver, his response was again as consistent as he was as a player. "It is nice that they will mention it but to be honest it wouldnt bother me at all if they did nothing. This is a huge game for us and we need a win; that is all Im thinking about." It is a big game. If the Lions win, they tie Calgary for first in the west and if the Riders win they stay in the race for home field advantage in the playoffs. It is also a game that will feature the most productive receiver in the games history.

Austin, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Lewis Hamilton from Mercedes won his fifth consecutive grand prix and widened his points lead over teammate Nico Rosberg in the Formula One world championship standings by winning Sundays United States Grand Prix. Starting second, Hamilton passed Rosberg, the pole sitter, for the lead on lap 24 of this 56-lap race at Circuit of the Americas. He took command from there, beating Rosberg at the finish by 4.3 seconds. Hamilton, the 2008 world champion, scored his 10th victory this season and the 32nd of his career, which placed him in a tie with Fernando Alonso for fifth on F1s all-time race winners list. Ive been so fortunate to have an incredible team and an incredible car, Hamilton said. I had a great competitor (Rosberg) today. Im really grateful to be up front. Prior to the U.S. GP, Hamilton won at Italy, Singapore, Japan and Russia. He now holds a 24-point advantage over Rosberg (316-292). Just two races remain with 75 points available. The race winner in next weekends Brazilian Grand Prix will receive 25 points, while the winner of the Nov. 23 season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will collect 50. Hamilton now has more F1 grand prix wins than any other British driver. Three weeks ago, Hamiltons victory in the inaugural Russian GP in Sochi had moved him into a tie his fellow British compatriot Nigel Mansell. Its such a privilege to be representing my country, and to be at the top of the drivers wins is quite special, Hamilton added. Its the third time Hamilton has won the U.S. GP. His first victory in this event occurred in 2007 at Indianapolis Motor Speedways road course. He also won the inaugural race at COTA two years ago when he drove for McLaren. Rosberg has finished second to Hamilton in three straight grand prix. Once Lewis got by me (for the lead), I found my rhythm, but it was too late, so that kind of sucked, Rosberg said. Daniel Ricciardo from Red Bull finished third, while the Williams duo of Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas placed fourth and fifth, respectively. Alonso from Ferrari was sixth. Sebastian Vettel, the four-time world champion and winner of last years U.S. GP here, finished seventh after he had to start this race from pit lane due to a penalty he received for using his sixth power unit (engine) this season. This event featured just an 18-car field since Caterham and Marussia both missed it due to their current financial issues. Marcus Williams Youth Jersey.

Marshon Lattimore Youth Jersey. -- The Oakland Raiders expect to have starting right tackle Tony Pashos back for Sundays game against the Houston Texans.ORLANDO, Fla. -- During the Magics recent struggles one of the few constants has been the offence provided by Arron Afflalo. The veteran provided another reminder of why hes so indispensable for a young team trying to find itself. Afflalo scored 23 points to lead five Orlando players in double-figures and the Magic snapped a three-game losing streak with a 109-92 win over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night. Orlando led the Pistons by as many as 22 points and cruised in the fourth quarter. Afflalo said the victory was one of the most complete efforts the Magic have posted in recent memory. "Its good to get a win at home for once," said Afflalo, who has scored at least 20 points in five straight outings. "I dont think weve won here this month. It was pretty impressive defensively. I thought the bigs did a great job trying to fight their bigs all night rebounding. I thought we shared the ball throughout the game, made the right play. "When we play like that I think were pretty good." The Magics leading scorer this season, Afflalo played eight minutes of the third quarter after lightly turning his left ankle. But after coming out of the game briefly, he was able to finish the period -- scoring six points -- before resting in the fourth. "The ankle, its one of those things where if you can fight through it, you go ahead and play," he said. The victory halted a five-game home losing streak for the Magic, who hadnt won at the Amway Center since the day before Thanksgiving. Nik Vucevic added 20 points and 11 rebounds, and rookie Victor Oladipo finished with 16 points and a career-high 11 assists. Magic coach Jacque Vaughn thought Fridays effort was sparked by what he called a surprisingly "intense" practice for this time of year. "That has to be our signature -- we have to come to work," he said. "I always tell them I dont know what results thats going to lead to wins and losses-wise, but you can look yourself in the mirror and appreciate what you do for a living, and your teammates appreciate you when you come to work." Brandon Jennings had 21 points and Will Bynum added 18 for the Pistons, who had a streak of three consecutive road victories ended.dddddddddddd "From the start of the game, we just couldnt get anything going. We got a couple stops in the third quarter, but we couldnt score, and it just kept going downhill from there," Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said. "We couldnt get anything going offensively, they pushed the ball down our throat defensively, and then we didnt make any shots." The Pistons, who claimed eight of their 14 wins on the road, never found a flow on offence. They shot 41 per cent for the game, and were outscored in the paint 58-48. "We had no sense of urgency and we didnt muster energy at all tonight," Jennings said. "Its got to be a collective unit to try to get it back together, but we didnt have it tonight." In some of their recent losses Orlando had started fast, only to fall apart late in the games. The Magic jumped out to another early lead, but this time were able to sustain it with a variety of scoring bursts that kept the Pistons playing catch up for most of the night. Orlando hovered over 50 per cent shooting throughout and carried a 19-point lead into the fourth quarter. The Magic carved out their early advantage shooting 56 per cent in the opening 24 minutes to take a 55-48 lead into halftime. Glen Davis had eight points in less than five minutes and then yielded to Afflalo, who finished the half with 12 points. Oladipo and Tobias Harris each added 10 points. Afflalo said theres no secret to what it will take for the Magic to have another "good night" like Friday. "Just get after it, man. Theres no mystery," he said. "We know what we need to do -- same focus, same effort. It starts with our preparation in shootaround, our intensity, attention to detail. And keeping our foot on the gas pedal." NOTES: The Magic improved to 5-6 when they score 100 or more points. ... Pistons G Chauncey Billups opted to continue his recent program of resting his tendinitis-affected knee on the first game of back-to-backs. Cheeks said Billups is expected to play when Detroit visits Washington on Saturday.

WASHINGTON -- The Charlotte Bobcats have leapfrogged another team, increasing the odds that their return to the playoffs wont be a token appearance. The Washington Wizards have dropped a spot and are having issues. Or, as centre Marcin Gortat put it: "The way we play right now, we aint going to beat anybody, including Milwaukee." The Bobcats blew a 20-point, first-half lead to the Wizards on Wednesday night before winning 94-88 in overtime, moving Charlotte into position for the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference. "To go from basically the worst team going to the six seed, I mean, it shows a lot," said guard Kemba Walker, who scored the only field goal in overtime for either team. The win left both teams at 40-38 with four games remaining, but Charlotte won the season series 3-1 and therefore holds the tiebreaker. Both teams want to stay out of seventh or eighth to avoid a first-round series against the two conference powerhouses, the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers. The Bobcats have been in the playoffs only once before, when they were swept in the first round in 2010. "We getting better as a team, we two games above .500," said Al Jefferson, who had 20 points and 18 rebounds. "But does it really matter where were at for seeding-wise? No, we just happy to be in the mix." Walker made a 3-pointer and a pair of free throws in the extra session, and Jefferson added two free throws to account for all of the Bobcats scoring. Charlotte went 1 for 7 from the field in overtime, while Washington was 0 for 8 and got its only point from a free throw by John Wall with 34 seconds remaining. Walker finished with 17 points and 12 assists for the Bobcats, who have their longest winning streak since March 2010. "Hes got courage," Charlotte coach Steve Clifford said. "He wants the ball late and hes not afraid to take the big shot." Wall had a candidate for most underwhelming triple-double of the season -- 14 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists -- and Gortat finished with 27 points and 14 rebounds for the Wizards, who were nearly run out of their own building in the first half for the second straight game and are limping toward the finish line of their first playoff season since 2008. Among Washington coach Randy Wittmans reviews: "To have no more energy or drive or enthusiasm than we showed in that first half, its disappointing. ... I was just not expecting to come out and go through the motions. ... When you dont put effort in, youre not going to have (a) good showing." Added veteran Gortat: "I guess were immature and just not experienced enough and I guess everything starts in the practice. The first few minutes were walking and just fooling around and this is how you start a game." Such comments put the focus on young All-Star Wall, who went 6 for 18 from the field and committed five turnovers. Wall disagreed with his coachs "go through the motions" assessment. "I dont feel that way," Wall said. "I feel like we competed. ... The last couple of games we havent been able to knock down shots." Wall had called this game the most important of the year, but he also made a whirlwind overnight trip to Texas on Monday to watch Kentucky lose the NCAA championship game. He said that had "nothing to do" with his performance. "I practiced yesterday and had a good day," Wall said. "Came here and had a game today. Its not like I went the night before." Trevor Ariza, who has been battling the flu, went 0 for 6 from the field for the Wizards. Washington was 1 for 15 from 3-point range. The Wizards again made defence optional in the early going, echoing their beatdown by the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. But Washington hit its stride in the third quarter and took its first lead of the game on Bradley Beals 15-foot jumper with 5:28 to play. Jefferson forced overtime with a layup that tied the game with 3.2 seconds remaining. Wall didnt get a shot off as time expired in regulation. Notes: Wizards F Nene, back after missing six-plus weeks with a sprained left knee, was understandably rusty. He missed all four of his free throws and finished with 10 points in 17 minutes. ... It was Walls third career triple-double and second this season. ... Bobcats F Josh McRoberts returned after missing three games with a sprained left ankle. Taco Charlton Womens Jersey.

Matt Bellerive scored both goals for the Blazers (12-43-5), who are 1-9-0 in their last 10 outings.Sidney Crosby is the face of the NHL and hockey in Canada, so its only natural that hell be the countrys captain at next months Sochi Olympics. The Pittsburgh Penguins captain, who scored the gold-medal-winning overtime goal against the United States in Vancouver four years ago, got the nod to wear the "C" this time around. Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks and Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators were named alternate captains, Hockey Canada announced Sunday morning. "Sidney, Jonathan and Shea have been leaders on the international stage in the past, as well as with their NHL teams," coach Mike Babcock said in a statement. "These three players will be at the forefront of our efforts in Sochi, but we are confident we have 25 players on our roster that will lead in their own way and allow our team to be successful." There will be no shortage of leadership in Sochi given the presence of six NHL captains, but it starts with Crosby. "Playing for Team Canada, playing in the Olympics is a great opportunity," Crosby told reporters at Penguins practice. "But being able to be named the captain is definitely an honour." Crosby was made the youngest captain in NHL history when he got the "C" for the Pittsburgh Penguins six and a half years ago. In 2009 he raised the Stanley Cup as captain. At the 2010 Olympics, Crosby was an alternate along with defenceman Chris Pronger and winger Jarome Iginla. The 26-year-old Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, native doesnt expect his mind-set to change much. Veteran defenceman Scott Niedermayer captained that team and said before his Hockey Hall of Fame induction in November that he had no doubt Crosby is ready to assume that role. "Hes very mature," Niedermayer said. "He was probably ready when he was 16. He was probably ready in 2010, and the thinking was hes going to have enough pressure on him just from who he is and things like that that he doesnt need one more thing to worry about, give it to some old guy thats just trying to figure things out out there. Im sure he would do very well." Toews seemed like the only other logical option, based on performing in 2010 and leading the Blackhawks to two Stanley Cups. Last week he acknowledged the possibility of being named captain. "Im ready for any role," Toews said in Montreal. "Last time, I played five, six, maybe seven minutes at the start of the tournament in Vancouver. By the end of it, the coaches had more confidence in me. They put me in more defensivve situations.dddddddddddd This time around wont be different. Whether Im captain -- or not -- whatever. Im going to Russia to win a gold medal like everyone else." This will be the second Olympics for most of the core, including the leadership group. "Honestly, it doesnt get old," Crosby said in Vancouver of just making the team. "That feeling doesnt get old. The appreciation and being proud to represent your country, its the same for everybody." Asked if he preferred "Captain Canada" over his current nickname of "Sid the Kid," Crosby said: "Ill let you guys worry about that." Ryan Smyth of the Edmonton Oilers has that moniker, and Crosby expects it to stick with the Hockey Canada mainstay despite this announcement. Russia already named Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings as captain. Its Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins for Slovakia and Tomas Plekanec of the Montreal Canadiens for the Czech Republic. The United States has yet to name its captain, though general manager David Poile singled out Ryan Suter, Zach Parise, Dustin Brown, Ryan Callahan and David Backes as the U.S. leadership group. The mens ice hockey tournament in Sochi begins Feb. 12. Canada opens against Norway on Feb. 13. Caroline Ouellette was named captain of Canadas womens team. Haley Wickenheiser will be a permanent alternate, while Jayna Hefford and Catherine Ward will rotate the second "A." "There is a tremendous amount of experience in our dressing room, and there is no shortage of qualified candidates to wear a letter," womens coach Kevin Dineen said in a statement. "The players we have selected as captain and alternates in Sochi have shown their dedication and commitment to the team and its end goal throughout a long season, and we feel they are the ideal choices to lead our team through the Olympic experience." Canadas womens team opens play Feb. 8 against Switzerland. Greg Westlake was named captain of Canadas sledge hockey team. Brad Bowden and Adam Dixon are the alternates. "This is the leadership team we have had in place since 2011, and we have the utmost confidence in them leading our team into Sochi," sledge team coach Mike Mondin said in a statement. "Greg, Brad and Adam have worn the Team Canada jersey with pride every time they have put it on, and have earned the right to wear a letter on the games biggest stage." -- With files from Kelsey Patterson in Montreal and Joshua Clipperton in Vancouver.

(SportsNetwork.com) - The Toronto Blue Jays will try to figure out the Kansas City Royals on Saturday when the two teams meet at Rogers Centre. The Blue Jays hope to follow the lead of prospect Marcus Stroman, making the first start of his Major League career, pushing Drew Hutchison back to Tuesday against the Detroit Tigers. Stroman, a 23-year-old righty, struggled in five relief appearances with the Blue Jays earlier this month, giving up nine earned runs over 6 1/3 innings while opponents hit .419 against him. In seven starts at Triple-A Buffalo this year, Stroman has gone 2-4 with a 3.03 ERA. "We want to get Stroman up here to give him a look," Gibbons told his teams official website. "And the thinking was, well back Hutchison off a couple of days. (Mark) Buehrle will start Sunday, Hutchison on Tuesday in Detroit. Weve been trying to pick some spots, give Hutch a little breather. After his last start, I thought he looked a little bit tired. We thought it would be a perfect time to give him a couple of extra days." Hutchison gave up five earned runs over five innings in his last start on Monday versus Tampa Bay. Kansas City took the first two contests of this four-game set with an 8-6 win in extra innings on Thursday and a 6-1 victory on Friday night. Lorenzo Cain nearly single-handedly led the Royals to victory on Friday, going 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI. Billy Butler also went 3-for-4 with three runs scored and Alex Gordon blasted his fourth home run of the season as well. "This is more of the offense that we envisioned coming out of spring training," Royals manager Ned Yost said. Jason Vargas earned his fifth win of the season as the starter, limiting the Blue Jays to just one run, while matching seven hits with as many strikeouts. "Vargas keeps you off-balance," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "If youre sitting on a pitch, you dont get it." Jose Bautista provided the only offense for the Blue Jays with his 14th home run of the season. J.A. Happ took the loss, laboring through 7 2/3 innings during which he gave up six runs on nine hits. Toronto has dropped back-to-back games after winning nine straight contests. Kansas City will turn to Aaron Brooks on Saturday. Brooks will be making his first MLB start, having just a single relief appearance to his name this season, his first in the majors. In his only other outing the 24-year-old let up six runs on seven hits over two innings during a 9-2 loss to Detroit on May 3. Brooks, who was drafted in the ninth round of the 2011 amateur draft out of Cal State San Bernardino, was 4-1 with a 3.12 ERA in eight games for Triple-A Omaha this season. The Royals have won three of the first five games between these teams this season.
