OAKLAND, Calif. <a href="http://www.hockeywildauthority.com/charlie-coyle-wild-jersey-c-16/" target="_blank">Charlie Coyle Jersey</a> . -- During a players meeting following the All-Star break, Jermaine ONeal promised his teammates to play the rest of the regular season like he would never play again -- because he very well might not. The 18-year NBA veteran has backed up his words more than anybody ever expected. ONeal had season highs of 23 points and 13 rebounds to carry the load for an undermanned frontcourt, and the Golden State Warriors held off the Brooklyn Nets 93-86 Saturday night for their third straight victory since the break. &quot;Whatever I have, Im going to leave it on the able. Ive said that quite a few times, but Im dead serious,&quot; said the 36-year-old ONeal, who missed extensive time following surgery on his wrist earlier this season. &quot;You may have to wheel me out of here at the end of the season, but thats what Im going to do.&quot; With Andrew Bogut sidelined with a left shoulder injury and David Lee out with a stomach flu, ONeal followed up his game-saving block that preserved Golden States overtime victory against Houston on Thursday night with a vintage performance. ONeal shot 10 for 13 from the floor, and Draymond Green scored a career-best 18 points to go with 10 rebounds starting in Lees place. Stephen Curry banked in a big 3-pointer in the final minute to finish with 17 points, and the Warriors won three games in a row for the first time since the Nets ended their 10-game winning streak on Jan. 8 in Brooklyn -- crediting ONeal for leading the way in the locker room and on the court. &quot;Hes getting an opportunity to put a stamp on what he says,&quot; Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. &quot;Its no longer what he says, its what hes doing.&quot; The veteran Nets never matched the intensity. Deron Williams had 20 points and six assists, and Joe Johnson scored 15 points for Brooklyn, which struggled to shoot from 3-point range and was just as careless passing. Brooklyn made just 2 of 21 attempts from beyond the arc and committed 16 turnovers. &quot;I thought we had a lot of good shots, they just didnt fall,&quot; said Nets forward Paul Pierce, who scored 11 points on 3-for-11 shooting. &quot;Sometimes you live by the 3, you die by the 3. We should attack more, especially with them limited in their big men.&quot; The Nets made sure the game moved at a plodding pace until the final minutes. Johnson made an 18-foot fadeaway to tie the score at 84 with 2:22 remaining. Green followed with two free throws, then Andray Blatche converted a tying layup. ONeal drew a foul on the other end and hit two free throws -- getting another chance after missing his second attempt because of a hitch in his release that drew a lane violation -- to give Golden State an 88-86 lead. On Brooklyns next possession, Johnsons pass was deflected before hitting Williams hands and landing out of bounds. Curry quickly came back by banking in a 3-pointer to put the Warriors up 91-86 with 37 seconds remaining and put the game out of reach. The win moved the Warriors (34-22) a season-high 12 games over .500. They begin a six-game road trip -- all against Eastern Conference opponents -- at Detroit on Monday. Golden States smaller lineup gave the Nets fits from the start. Curry hit two 3-pointers during an 18-6 run to open the game. Brooklyns slow start compounded when Shaun Livingston left in the first quarter with a bruised tailbone after falling hard when he was fouled by Harrison Barnes going for a layup. The team said X-rays on Livingston were negative. Just like they did in Brooklyn, though, the Nets rallied from an early deficit against Golden States second unit. Brooklyn took the lead for the first time when Williams started a three-point play on a layup over Andre Iguodala, putting the Nets up 46-44 late in the second quarter. They never led again. &quot;Even though we didnt shoot the ball extremely well from behind the arc, it was a game until the last minute,&quot; Nets coach Jason Kidd said. &quot;On the road against a team like Golden State, thats all you can ask for.&quot; NOTES: Green said he was in an accident driving to the game, but that no one was injured. ... Nets G Marcus Thornton sat out with a stomach illness. He has yet to play since being traded from Sacramento on Wednesday for Jason Terry and Reggie Evans. ... Warriors coach Mark Jackson said Bogut, who missed his seventh straight game because of an ailing left shoulder, will likely return at some point during the Warriors six-game road trip. ... The Warriors signed C Hilton Armstrong to a 10-day contract, calling him from the teams NBA Development League affiliate in Santa Cruz. <a href="http://www.hockeywildauthority.com/darcy-kuemper-wild-jersey-c-19/" target="_blank">Darcy Kuemper Jersey</a> . &quot;It feels good, Ive never had one before, not even in College,&quot; Hagelin said after the Rangers outgunned the Jets 4-2, behind some solid goaltending from Henrik Lundqvist following a pretty wide open first period. <a href="http://www.hockeywildauthority.com/jonas-brodin-wild-jersey-c-22/" target="_blank">Jonas Brodin Jersey</a> .

Or at least on everyone elses expectations. Costa Rica followed up its surprise win over Uruguay with another World Cup stunner on Friday, beating four-time champion Italy 1-0 to secure a spot in the next round and eliminate England in the process.CINCINNATI, Ohio -- The Bengals have signed defensive tackle Kheeston Randall to fill the roster spot of All-Pro Geno Atkins, out for the season with a torn knee ligament. Randall was the Dolphins seventh-round pick last year and played in 12 games. He was waived by Miami on Aug. 31. Atkins tore the ACL in his right knee during a 22-20 overtime loss in Miami last Thursday. The BBengals put Atkins on injured reserve Monday and replaced him by signing defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi, a sixth-round pick of the Raiders last year. <a href="http://www.hockeywildauthority.com/mikael-granlund-wild-jersey-c-14/" target="_blank">Mikael Granlund Jersey</a>. The deal was later voided by the NFL because Bilukidi didnt have a current work permit from Canada to keep playing in the United States after the Raiders waived him, so the Bengals signed Randall on Tuesday. <a href="http://www.chinastorenflfactory.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.nflmallwebsitecheap.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysthrowback.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysauthenticfromchina.com/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysautographed.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapchinajerseysforsale.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysforcheapauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

ANAHEIM, Calif. <a href="http://www.thepanthersofficialstore.com/authentic-julius-peppers-panthers-jersey/" target="_blank">Julius Peppers Jersey</a> . -- The Houston Astros saw a completely different Jered Weaver than the one they faced 6 1/2 weeks ago at Minute Maid Park, when they hit four home runs off him. The Los Angeles Angels ace pitched a two-hitter Wednesday night in the rematch, posting his first complete game in nearly two years, and Albert Pujols hit a go-ahead home run in the sixth to lead the Halos to a 2-1 victory. &quot;Those guys roughed me up a little bit at their place, so I wanted to come in here and have a good game and keep us in it as much as possible,&quot; Weaver said. &quot;Their guy was throwing a good game, too. So it was nice to come out on top.&quot; Weaver (5-3) threw 94 pitches while going the distance for the 12th time in 241 career starts and first time since Aug. 6, 2012, when he beat the Athletics 4-0 with a four-hitter at Oakland. &quot;It was definitely exciting to run out there for the ninth and hear the fans,&quot; Weaver said. &quot;Thats what you pitch for -- to go deep into games and finish it off.&quot; Weaver struck out five, walked one and retired 17 of his last 19 batters -- including 10 straight after giving up a leadoff homer to George Springer in the fourth. The three-time All-Star is 5-1 with a 1.70 ERA over his last seven starts. Weaver hit Springer with a pitch with one out in the ninth, then picked him off after getting a sign from manager Mike Scioscia in the dugout. He got the final out by retiring Dexter Fowler on a popup to third base. &quot;In that situation, Im not really worried about baserunners. But Scioscia called a great pickoff there,&quot; Weaver said. &quot;Usually when I look over, I can see a little bit of the runner. But when I looked over before that pick, I couldnt see him. So I figured he was off the bag pretty good. I just made a good quick move, and that definitely took a lot of pressure off.&quot; Weaver threw a called third strike to Jason Castro in the fourth for his 1,281st career strikeout, overtaking Mike Witt on the Angels career list behind Nolan Ryan and Chuck Finley. &quot;I didnt even know that I was coming up on any milestone like that at all,&quot; Weaver said. &quot;I think I threw strikeouts out the door maybe two years ago. I mean, its great when youre young and you just want to go out there and try to strike everybody out. But then you realize that getting early outs is just as important and it helps you get deeper in games.&quot; Collin McHugh (2-3) lost his third straight decision over four starts despite allowing just two runs and four hits in seven innings. The right-hander struck out seven and walked two. Erick Aybar drove in the Angels other run with a third-inning single. &quot;You know coming into it that Weavers arguably one of if not the best pitchers in this league,&quot; McHugh said. &quot;So you know that youre not going to be able to give up a lot and that its going to be a dogfight.&quot; Pujols who homered twice on Sunday against Tampa Bay ace David Price, drove a 2-1 pitch into the top tier of the double-decker bullpen in left field for his 13th homer this season and 505th of his career to surpass Eddie Murray for 25th place on the career list. On hand to see it was Air Force staff sergeant Tom Sherrill of Pomona, California, who came up with Pujols 500th home run ball on April 22 at Nationals Park in Washington. &quot;What I did two or three weeks ago, I put that in the past. Ive flipped the page,&quot; Pujols said. &quot;My goal is to try to concentrate on whats in front of me and help this organization win. I dont get caught up too much in numbers.&quot; NOTES: The jockey and trainer for Triple Crown hopeful California Chrome -- Victor Espinoza and Art Sherman -- each threw out a ceremonial first pitch. ... Angels CF Mike Trout missed his first game of the season because of a sore left hamstring, but was available to pinch-hit if necessary. He expects to be back in the lineup Friday night for the start of a three-game series with Kansas City. Collin Cowgill started in CF for the third time this season and robbed Jose Altuve of a hit with a diving catch of his shallow flyball leading off the game. Altuve was 0 for 4, ending his career-best 12-game hitting streak. ...... Pujols had 43 home runs against the Astros, tying Aramis Ramirez for the most among active players. <a href="http://www.thepanthersofficialstore.com/authentic-chris-scott-panthers-jersey/" target="_blank">Chris Scott Jersey</a> . -- The Sacramento Kings and guard Jimmer Fredette have completed a buyout of his contract, clearing the way for the former BYU sensation to become a free agent. <a href="http://www.thepanthersofficialstore.com/authentic-derek-anderson-panthers-jersey/" target="_blank">Derek Anderson Jersey</a> . 15-23, the Ottawa Senators will by hoping to avoid going five straight games without a victory for the first time since a 0-3-2 drought from Oct. <a href="http://www.thepanthersofficialstore.com/authentic-christian-mccaffrey-panthers-jersey/" target="_blank">http://www.thepanthersofficialstore.com/authentic-christian-mccaffrey-panthers-jersey/</a> .C. -- Charles Oakley, one of the NBAs all-time tough guys, may not return to the Charlotte Bobcats bench next season because of a painful back condition he says was caused during an assault last year in Las Vegas.TORONTO – Jose Bautista missed his fourth consecutive game with an injured left hamstring when the Blue Jays took the field against the White Sox on Thursday night. He confirmed he wouldnt be able to play on Friday night either. But Bautista is progressing. “Better,” he said. “That is the best way I can describe it. It feels better than when it happened, better than the day after. So theres been a lot of progress. But Im obviously not ready to play, not today.” The first tests of Bautistas hamstring were passed on Monday and Tuesday. “Just to make sure I didnt need to go on the DL,” he said. The next test will be conducted on Saturday morning, hours before the third game of this four-game series. Bautista will run a series of sprints and, if his leg holds up, hell be available to at least pinch hit on the weekend. The Jays havent faced a left-handed starting pitcher since the Cardinals Jaime Garcia on June 8, a span of 17 games. Chicago will send three left-handers to the mound from Friday to Sunday, including most difficult challenges on Saturday (ace Chris Sale: 6-1, 2.27 ERA) and Sunday (Jose Quintana: 4-7, 3.69 ERA). Bautistas right-handed power bat would be especially welcomed. He admitted it can be difficult to remain patient as the hamstring heals. “Its tough because I dont want to handcuff the team by not being available,” said Bautista. “But at the same time I dont think I need the extra week to come back and, after two weeks, you normally would have to get some at-bats somewhere. I just dont want to go through that process because I dont feel like I need it.” In 77 games this season, Bautista is hitting .305/.433/.526 with 15 home runs and 59 walks to 48 strikeouts. He is baseballs leader in on-base percentage (.433) and bases-on-balls. Defensively, Bautistas eight outfield assists place him in a three-way tie for second. BAUTISTA CALLS FOR SUPPORT FOR ENCARNACION Edwin Encarnacion entered Thursdays action with 24 home runs, making him the major league co-leader with Baltimores Nelson Cruz. He is listed as a designated hitter on the All-Star fan voting ballot and currently sits fourth at the posittion behind Cruz, Bostons David Ortiz and Victor Martinez of the Tigers. <a href="http://www.thepanthersofficialstore.com/authentic-daryl-williams-panthers-jersey/" target="_blank">Daryl Williams Jersey</a>. Jose Bautista isnt happy about it. If the fans dont put Encarnacion into the game, Bautista expects the American League manager will. That man: former Jays skipper John Farrell. “How could you not pick the guy who is leading the league in home runs and RBIs?” asked Bautista. “Im surprised still that the fans havent come out and supported him better and hes not leading the votes for his position, but you cant control that as much as you can control a manager picking a player.” Encarnacion captured the imagination of Toronto fans and baseball in general with his 16-home run May. “I think, either way he should make the team,” said Bautista. “It would be a huge disappointment and let-down to all fans if you dont have a guy like Edwin dressed up for that game. No matter if its the other players or the manager picking him.” Bautista is the captain of the American League team for the annual Home Run Derby, which is held the night before the All-Star Game. Players who take part in the derby dont have to be participants in the game. However, Encarnacion has already told Bautista he wants no part of the derby. Bautista is actively recruiting potential derby-mates. He plans to speak to Chicagos rookie slugger, Jose Abreu (23 home runs) at some point this weekend. “I dont want to pick guys that dont want to do it and I dont want to force guys into doing it if they dont really feel like it, if theyre uncomfortable or they have some health issues,” said Bautista. “I want to win this, so Im not going to pick anybody who is going to be reserved in any way when they go and pick up a bat.” TOLLESONS VISION IMPROVING Steve Tolleson replaced Juan Francisco at third base in the seventh inning of Thursdays game against the White Sox, his first action on the homestand. He began suffering from dryness of the eyes and blurred vision on the last road trip. Tolleson made a Thursday visit to a cornea specialist, his fourth trip to an eye doctor in as many days, and came away with the diagnosis of an allergic reaction to contact lenses. <a href="http://www.chinastorenflfactory.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.nflmallwebsitecheap.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysthrowback.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysauthenticfromchina.com/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysautographed.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapchinajerseysforsale.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysforcheapauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. <a href="http://www.authenticcavaliersauthority.com/brad-daugherty-cavaliers-jersey-c-16/" target="_blank">Brad Daugherty Jersey</a> . -- First baseman Brandon Belt has reached agreement on a $2.9 million, one-year contract with the San Francisco Giants to avoid salary arbitration. Assistant general manager Bobby Evans announced the deal late Tuesday, ahead of the teams first full-squad spring training workout Wednesday at Scottsdale Stadium. An arbitration hearing had been scheduled for early Wednesday in St. Petersburg, Fla. Belt was seeking $3.6 million and the Giants offered $2.05 million. The 25-year-old Belt batted .289 with 17 home runs and 67 RBIs in 150 games last season as San Francisco missed the playoffs a year after winning the World Series. His salary was $531,500. A fifth-round pick in the 2009 amateur draft by the Giants, the left-handed-hitting Belt has been a major league regular the past two seasons. <a href="http://www.authenticcavaliersauthority.com/jeff-green-cavaliers-jersey-c-26/" target="_blank">Jeff Green Jersey</a> . Jurrjens signed a minor league contract with Cincinnati in May, and was 2-3 with a 4.46 ERA at Triple-A Louisville.

It was my fifth straight year attending and, as always, there are many interesting matters discussed as it pertains to the use of statistics in sports.The biggest gun among unrestricted free agents was dealt just as the deadline approached, but the ultimate price sure appears to be a relative bargain. Numbers Game looks into the Canadiens securing the services of Thomas Vanek in a trade with the New York Islanders. The Canadiens Get: LW Thomas Vanek and a conditional fifth-round pick. Vanek, 30, was considered the prize of the pending unrestricted free agent class as the deadline approached. Hes scored 271 goals in 645 games since coming into the league in 2005-2006. Since his second year in the league, Vanek ranks fourth with 246 goals and hes done it with all sorts of different linemates between his time in Buffalo and, for much of this season, with John Tavares and Kyle Okposo on the top line for the New York Islanders. Vanek isnt a great possession player, some years better than others, but is so skilled and plays in an offensive role that his on-ice shooting percentage is among the best in the league over the past five seasons. In Montreal, Vanek should give the Canadiens offence a jolt, as Max Pacioretty, with 29 goals, is the only Hab with more than Vaneks 21 goals this season. Adding Vanek will give the Canadiens offence more depth and its conceivable that a finisher like Vanek can continue to produce while also elevating the production of his new linemates. A spot alongside Tomas Plekanec and Alex Galchenyuk might be a decent fit to start. An unrestricted free agent in the summer, Vanek brings a cap hit of more than $7.1-million. There have been several rumours this season about Vaneks desire to end up in Minnesota, and that may be where he goes as a free agent, but Vanek also acknowledged that a winning team sure helps in the decision-making process. If Vanek can play a significant role in the Canadiens playoff push, then perhaps Montreal will be a destination that he considers as a long-term home, but that expectation had better come with the understanding that Vanek is going to command a massive contract as an unrestricted free agent this summer. The Islanders Get: RW Sebastian Collberg and a conditional second-round pick. <a href="http://www.authenticcavaliersauthority.com/jr-smith-cavaliers-jersey-c-7/" target="_blank">J.R. Smith Jersey</a>. Collberg just turned 20 a couple of weeks ago and was a second-round pick in 2012. Hes a skilled forward with good speed who has 18 points in 75 Swedish Elite League games over the past two seasons with Frolunda HC. Hes put up a dozen points in 13 games at the past two World Junior Hockey Championships. Its hard to project a young forward getting limited ice time in Sweden to a big role right away in the NHL, so Collberg probably needs time in the AHL, which ought to be fine for the Islanders, who have quite a few young forwards coming through the pipeline. One of those young forwards, Anders Lee, the 23-year-old rookie pro out of Notre Dame, could see quite a bit of action in a scoring role down the stretch. Lee has four goals and six points in six NHL games (this year and last) and, with Vanek gone, there is room for Lee to show that he should be a part of the plans for next seasons team. The conditional picks are based on whether or not the Canadiens make the playoffs. If they hold their current playoff spot, then the Canadiens swap their second-rounder for the Islanders fifth-round pick. If the Canadiens fall out and miss the playoffs, then the deal will just be Collberg for the rental of Vanek. All told, the price doesnt seem to be nearly enough a return for the Islanders, who were out of the race early enough that everyone knew they were going to deal Vanek, but somehow appeared to overplay their hand because even if Collberg is a good prospect, that doesnt seem to match the price paid for lesser players. As a result of that incongruous fit between the Islanders asking price and what the market was ultimately willing to pay, it sure appears to have provided an opening for Montreal GM Marc Bergevin to take advantage and upgrade his team at a very reasonable price.

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. <a href="http://www.lakersbasketballshop.com/Customized/" target="_blank">Custom Los Angeles Lakers Jerseys</a> . -- Canadian Daniel Nestor and Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic lost 6-4, 7-6(4) to Americans Jack Sock and Ryan Harrison in a mens doubles quarterfinal at the Sony Open on Wednesday. The young American pair put out the match-tough, sixth-seeded veterans in 73 minutes as Nestor and Zimonjic let opportunities slip. Nestor suffered disappointment at the tournament for a second consecutive year following an exit in the 2013 second round. Nestor and former partner Max Mirnyi played in the final at the event in 2011 and 2012. Nestor, from Toronto, won the 2002 title with Mark Knowles of the Bahamas. Zimonjic began the match well enough with a love game but also lost his serve in the ninth game as Sock and Harrison took a 5-4 lead before serving out the first set in 27 minutes. The second set went into a tiebreaker as Nestor and Zimonjic tried to recover only to go down to the loss. &quot;There were some service games in the first set where we gave them too many chances,&quot; Nestor said. &quot;We didnt do a lot and they took advantage. &quot;There are days like this when you dont come out sharp or the other guys start getting more confidence and go for their shots more. &quot;They were playing well today. All opponent are tough, we knew what to expect. But some days you are mentally sharp and ready to play -- other days not so much, like today.&quot; Nestor will next play on clay at Monte Carlo in mid-April. <a href="http://www.lakersbasketballshop.com/Vlade-Divac-Jersey/" target="_blank">Vlade Divac Jersey</a> .

Burkes Flames are one of several teams involved in heavy trade speculation going into next Wednesdays 3pm et deadline, with the most prominent name in play being forward Michael Cammalleri.TORONTO – Randy Carlyle entered the dressing room of the Maple Leafs practice facility Monday morning to an unusual and almost eerie silence. There was no music pumping from the stereo system, nothing but the uncomfortable quiet of a team in midst of another memorable late season collapse. &quot;Thats a sure tell-tale sign,&quot; he said of a group in shock, down in the dumps from a losing streak numbering eight games, one that has the clubs playoff hopes dangling from the thinnest of threads. Carlyle took the day to inject a little life into what remains of those hopes. He also did a fair bit of teaching, directing, and informing, tweaks to &quot;things that we think that are very easily correctable&quot;. He implored his forwards to &quot;turn your [butt]&quot; to protect the puck and adjusted the positioning of Jay McClement and Tim Gleason during one particular defensive zone drill. Carlyle may be coaching for his job in these final six games of the regular season, but beyond the uncertain question of the head coach and his status for next season is the roster retooling that seems likely to take place under the direction of GM Dave Nonis and his management team this summer. With 10 players up for free agency – including half the forward group and two top-four defenders – and the core deserving of some scrutiny after another collapse, plenty of change could and probably will be coming to the Leafs. Forwards James van Riemsdyk Tyler Bozak Phil Kessel Joffrey Lupul Nazem Kadri Nikolai Kulemin** Mason Raymond** Dave Bolland** David Clarkson Troy Bodie** Jay McClement** Jerry DAmigo* Colton Orr Defencemen Carl Gunnarsson Dion Phaneuf Jake Gardiner* Cody Franson* Tim Gleason Morgan Rielly Paul Ranger** Goaltenders Jonathan Bernier James Reimer* Note: *Restricted Free Agent | **Unrestricted Free Agent Phil Kessel, James van Riemsdyk, Dion Phaneuf, David Clarkson, Joffrey Lupul, and Tyler Bozak are all locked up until the summer of 2017 and in some cases beyond. They constitute the Toronto core along with Morgan Rielly and Jonathan Berrnier and the far less secure but high upside duo of Nazem Kadri and Jake Gardiner. <a href="http://www.shoptheofficialbills.com/Elite-Adolphus-Washington-Bills-Jersey/" target="_blank">Adolphus Washington Jersey</a>. Considering their place in three straight collapses – all of varying degree – and ongoing struggles to defend, adjustment to the group has to be considered with only Kessel, van Riemsdyk, Bernier and Rielly seemingly off the table this offseason. Luke Schenn, once a cornerstone of that group, was jettisoned after the meltdown in 2012. Mikhail Grabovski faced the same fate via compliance buyout after Game 7 last spring. Will the summer ahead bring with it more change to the building blocks of the organization? Is a 1-2 centre punch of Bozak and Kadri strong enough to be a force in the East or are upgrades needed down the middle? Is there enough two-way stability to the current top-six (all signed long-term, save for Kadri) with little in the way of youth on the way? Can Clarkson be redeemed in year two of a whopping seven-year contract? Might the organization buy him out? Is a trade even possible? Can Lupul be a part of the solution at age 30 and beyond that? Is the core, generally speaking, good enough to win as constructed or is a major or perhaps minor tinkering required? Beyond that core is the looming free agent bunch, of which Bolland figures to be the most intriguing. The 27-year-old began his Leaf career with a bang, posting six goals and 10 points in October. But a serious ankle injury kept him out nearly five months and muddled his status in the process. Theres value there, but at what price and what term? Can he stabilize the club at centre ice or is there a better fit elsewhere, perhaps 28-year-old Paul Statsny, also entering unrestricted free agency for the first time? Then there are the likes of Mason Raymond, Nik Kulemin, Jay McClement, Troy Bodie and Paul Ranger, all also unrestricted. McClement is useful if employed in a fourth line role, and Bodie has certainly earned himself another contract with an energetic presence. The others all have question marks with price point and fit among the concerns. Thats the entire group of bottom-six forwards, all in question to return next season. None of the three restricted free agents are certain or maybe even likely to come back next year with Jake Gardiner the likeliest of a bunch – by a good margin – that includes Cody Franson and the all-but-gone James Reimer. Torontos defence should be the top priority for upgrade followed by a forward complement that has plenty of holes in the bottom ranks (size, strength, defensive commitment among the issues) with question marks up top and down the middle as well. Nonis would be hard-pressed to bring back Carlyle if the Leafs do definitively fumble away their once certain playoff chances, but hell also have to give a long, hard look to a roster thats proven (in conjunction with that coaching staff) to be flawed and in need of improvement. <a href="http://www.chinastorenflfactory.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.nflmallwebsitecheap.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysthrowback.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysauthenticfromchina.com/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysautographed.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapchinajerseysforsale.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysforcheapauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

Melbourne, Australia (SportsNetwork. <a href="http://www.shopthejaguarsonline.com/Elite-Stefan-Charles-Jaguars-Jersey/" target="_blank">Stefan Charles Jersey</a> .com) - Three-time reigning and four-time overall champion Novak Djokovic was a predictable third-round winner Friday at the dangerously hot Australian Open. A brutal heat wave continued to produce stifling weather, as the temperature climbed as high as 111 degrees on Day 5 at Melbourne Park. The second-seeded former world No. 1 Djokovic pushed his Aussie Open winning streak to 24 matches with a 6-3, 6-3, 7-5 handling of Uzbekistans Denis Istomin in just under two hours at Rod Laver Arena. Djokovic topped British star Andy Murray in last years finale in Oz and hasnt lost here since 2010, when Jo-Wilfried Tsonga got him in the quarterfinals. Up next for the six-time major champion will be gritty Italian Fabio Fognini. Meanwhile, last years French Open runner-up David Ferrer and former Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych were also among Fridays winners. Ferrer advanced by beating 29th-seeded Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-2, 7-6 (7-5), 6-2 at Laver. Chardy struggled with an inconsistent service game. He fired eight aces, but committed the same number of double faults and committed 51 unforced errors en route to defeat. The third-seeded Ferrer has reached at least the round of 16 at 15 straight Grand Slam tournaments, a run that began at Wimbledon in 2010. The steady Spaniard matched his best Australian Open performance last year by reaching the semifinals before losing to the great Djokovic. Awaiting Ferrer in the fourth round is German Florian Mayer, who dismissed injured 20th-seeded Jerzy Janowicz of Poland in straight sets, 7-5, 6-2, 6-2. Janowicz later revealed hes been managing an injury, as doctors in Poland advised him not to compete at this tournament due to a broken bone in his foot, which was diagnosed during the this past offseason. &quot;Before I [left] Poland, [it] was still a little bit broken; was not 100 percent healthy,&quot; he said after Fridays loss. &quot;There was still quite a bit inflammation. So all the time Im taking inflammation pills, and we will see how its going to be. Anyway its better than it was before definitely.&quot; The seventh-seeded Berdych, meanwhile, served up 13 aces in a 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 victory over qualifier Damir Dzumhur, who was the first man from Bosnia and Herzegovina to play in a Grand Slam event. The 6-foot-5 Berdych reached the quarterfinals in Melbourne last year, losing to Djokovic. The Czechs next opponent will be 19th-seeded taller South African Kevin Anderson. The 6-foot-8 Anderson overcame a sluggish start and saved a match point before beating Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin 3-6, 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-5), 7-5. A top-10 upset came when 17th-seeded former top-10 star Tommy Robredo of Spain took out ninth-seeded Frenchman Richard Gasquet 2-6, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6 (8-6) in 3 hours, 19 minutes. The resurgent Robredo popped 16 aces en route to the upset. Robredos fourth-round opponent will be eighth-seeded Swiss Stan Wawrinka, who advanced via walkover when 28th-seeded Canadian Vasek Pospisil pulled out of the draw on Thursday. Also on Friday, a 15th-seeded Fognini dismissed American Sam Querrey 7-5, 6-4, 6-4. The third round will conclude on Saturday, including matches for former champion Rafael Nadal, the three-time Aussie runner-up Murray, four-time titlist Roger Federer, and the 2008 runner-up Tsonga. The world No. 1 Nadal, who is the reigning U.S. and French Open champion, titled in Melbourne in 2009 and was the Aussie runner-up in 2012, will battle 25th-seeded Frenchman Gael Monfils in a rematch of a final two weeks ago in Doha, which was captured by the high-flying Spaniard. The fourth-seeded reigning Wimbledon champ Murray will take on 26th-seeded Spanish left-hander Feliciano Lopez, while the sixth-seeded former No. 1 and 17-time Grand Slam king Federer will face Russian Teymuraz Gabashvili, and a 10th-seeded Tsonga will be opposed by 18th-seeded fellow Frenchman Gilles Simon. In some other third-round play on Day 6, 11th-seeded Canadian slugger Milos Raonic will tangle with rising 22nd-seeded Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov and 16th- seeded Japanese Kei Nishikori will lock horns with American Donald Young. <a href="http://www.shopthejaguarsonline.com/Elite-Jermey-Parnell-Jaguars-Jersey/" target="_blank">Jermey Parnell Jersey</a> . The South Africa international, who rejoined the club last month on loan from Tottenham, opened the scoring in the sixth minute with a powerful shot into the roof of the net. <a href="http://www.shopthejaguarsonline.com/Elite-Justin-Blackmon-Jaguars-Jersey/" target="_blank">Justin Blackmon Jersey</a> . -- DeMarcus Cousins had 29 points, nine rebounds and six steals to lead the Sacramento Kings to their third straight preseason win, a 107-90 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night. <a href="http://www.shopthejaguarsonline.com/Elite-Jalen-Ramsey-Jaguars-Jersey/" target="_blank">http://www.shopthejaguarsonline.com/Elite-Jalen-Ramsey-Jaguars-Jersey/</a> . The Giants chances of winning the division were dealt a serious blow by the three-game sweep at the hands of the lowly Padres. The Giants open a three-game series at Dodger Stadium on Monday night. San Francisco is still in good shape to clinch a wild-card berth, although it dropped into a tie with Pittsburgh in the race for the top spot.CLEVELAND -- Wide receiver Andrew Hawkins joined the Browns on Tuesday after the Cincinnati Bengals declined to match an offer sheet for him. The Bengals announced their decision eight hours before a five-day deadline to equal Clevelands offer to Hawkins was to expire. The Browns signed Hawkins, a restricted free agent, to a four-year, $13.6 million offer sheet last Thursday. The team has not yet announced the signing. Hawkins, 5-foot-7 and 180 pounds, fills a major need at slot receiver. The Browns recently released troubled wide receiver Davone Bess and were in the market for an inside playmaker. Hawkins fits that bill and should help Clevelands offence with his elusiveness and big-play potential. Hawkins had just 12 catches for 199 yards last season, when he was sidelined by a high-ankle sprain. <a href="http://www.shopthejaguarsonline.com/Elite-Leonard-Fournette-Jaguars-Jersey/" target="_blank">Leonard Fournette Jersey</a>. In 2012, he had 51 catches for 533 yards and four touchdowns. &quot;I dont want to let Andrew go without making note that he has been a very hard working and contributing player,&quot; Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement released by the team. &quot;He has set a great example of being a great teammate. But were fortunate to have a lot of depth at wide receiver, and were excited to move forward. &quot;Our leading receivers from last year will all return, and we have another group who know our system and have earned our confidence that they are ready to see more action.&quot; <a href="http://www.chinastorenflfactory.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.nflmallwebsitecheap.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysthrowback.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysauthenticfromchina.com/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysautographed.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapchinajerseysforsale.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysforcheapauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

Wes Washpun then sent the ball to Buss, who had an open look from the right corner and drained it. Knight charged down the court and put up a tough layup at the buzzer, but it hit off the bottom of the rim as Northern Iowa escaped with the victory.

For at least three participants in the 101st Grey Cup game, a dream will be realized -- back to back championships. <a href="http://www.thebostonbruinshockey.com/ryan-spooner-hockey-jersey/" target="_blank">Ryan Spooner Jersey</a> . It doesnt matter which team wins. At least three members of last years Toronto Argonauts will become repeat winners. If the hometown Riders prevail, Ricky Foley, Tristan Black and Ejiro Kuale will win another ring. If the visiting Ticats break the hearts of an entire province, Evan McCullough, Brandon Isaac, Joel Reinders, and defensive coordinator Orlondo Steinauer will once again be champions. For Isaac and Kuale, its a particularly sweet opportunity. Isaac was released by the Argos early in the season and quickly signed in Hamilton, while Kuale, who signed with Montreal in the off-season, was let go by the Alouettes before finding his way to Regina in September. Its a chance for both players to end a frustrating season on an incredible high. &quot;Ive thought about it a little bit,&quot; Kuale told TSN.ca &quot;Ive talked about it with Ricky and Tristan and its pretty exciting to be in this position again.&quot; The fourth-year linebacker/rush end sees an incredible similarity between Torontos run last year to the path the Riders find themselves on right now. &quot;I was talking about it with Foley,&quot; said the LSU product. &quot;We had the home playoff game like in Toronto, we had to travel to the East Final, this year we had to travel to the West Final, now weve got the home Grey Cup. The mood feels the same.&quot; Isaac also relishes the opportunity to go back to back, and had a great experience at this weeks East Breakfast when he got to revisit an old friend. &quot;I went and looked at the Grey Cup and saw my name on it,&quot; said the linebacker. &quot;I told the guys they have the opportunity to put their names on it as well.&quot; It would be an incredible way to end a season that started out with his stunning release. &quot;Coming into the season, I prepared myself,&quot; said the South Carolina product. &quot;I was named captain, took that to heart, thought it was a big step in my life. It was taken away from me. I was down, frustrated, shocked, upset at myself and upset with others.&quot; &quot;Then I got an opportunity to come over here,&quot; Isaac continued. &quot;I kept on battling and battling and now Im here at the Grey Cup with the team that gave me the opportunity to play football.&quot; Evan McCullough brought versatility to the Ticats when he arrived from the Double Blue, but he didnt bring his Grey Cup ring to Regina. Thats safely tucked away back at his home in the United States. The starting defensive halfback told TSN.ca that he hasnt thought about the rare opportunity to win consecutive championships. &quot;I havent because it really hasnt hit me yet,&quot; said McCullough &quot;To be a part of the 100th Grey Cup champions and then get a chance to go back for the 101st is awesome, its amazing. A lot of people dont get to experience that, and I get a chance to do that at a young time in my career.&quot; Ricky Foley experienced the absolute high last year of winning a championship, doing it for his hometown team in his home stadium, and also playing well enough to be named the games Outstanding Canadian. Since the time he put pen to paper with Saskatchewan, hes thought about the opportunity to accomplish what may occur on Sunday. &quot;I thought about it when I came here,&quot; said the native of Courtice, Ontario. &quot;At the same time you dont want to be focused on back-to-back, you want to be focused on executing and playing a good game.&quot; Foley left an area of the country where the CFL struggles to gain attention at times, to play in the heartland of the league. He has trouble visualizing what it will be like to run through the tunnel Sunday in front of Rider Nation. &quot;I cant even imagine it,&quot; Foley told TSN.ca &quot;Last year was pretty special and its hard to compare to that because I had so much family and friends in the crowd, it was unbelievable. But this is the Mecca of football in Canada. I dont know what to expect, but Im just going to enjoy it.&quot; Kuale shares Foleys fondness for the Rider faithful. &quot;I get goosebumps every time I walk out on the field with the team or Im on the sidelines,&quot; said a smiling Kuale. &quot;It feels like when I was back at LSU. I felt we had the best fans in the world and thats the way I feel about the Rider fans.&quot; Its rare that home teams win a Grey Cup game. Its even more unusual to have a player be on teams that win in consecutive years on their home field. Quarterback Jarious Jackson accomplished the rare feat last year, after winning a ring in 2011 with the BC Lions. Before that, members of the 1946-47 Argos were the last players to win back-to-back championships in front of home fans. The three Riders are hoping they can join that exclusive club. Their former teammates on the Ticats would prefer the feat remains a rarity. <a href="http://www.thebostonbruinshockey.com/tim-schaller-hockey-jersey/" target="_blank">Tim Schaller Jersey</a> . The Blue Jackets announced the injury through their official Twitter account Friday afternoon. Gaborik, 31, has scored five goals and six assists in 17 games with the Blue Jackets in 2013-14. <a href="http://www.thebostonbruinshockey.com/tuukka-rask-hockey-jersey/" target="_blank">Tuukka Rask Jersey</a> . Dumont, a fifth round draft pick of the Canadiens in 2009, has four assists and 20 penalty minutes in 12 games with the Bulldogs this season. The 23-year-old split last season between Hamilton and Montreal, recording 16 goals and 15 assists in 55 regular season games with the Bulldogs. <a href="http://www.thebostonbruinshockey.com/brad-marchand-hockey-jersey/" target="_blank">http://www.thebostonbruinshockey.com/brad-marchand-hockey-jersey/</a> . -- Steven Stamkos scored his first goal since returning from a major injury, Ryan Callahan had his first goal with Tampa Bay, and the Lightning beat the Florida Panthers 5-4 on Thursday night.Bruce Arians, Pete Carroll, Jason Garrett, familiar names likely to get support for the APs Coach of the Year honour.How about the guys who do the grunt work for them? Some call plays, others spend countless hours teaching, administrating, organizing. Few get the glory.Until this season. On Jan. 31, the night before the Super Bowl, at the prime-time NFL Honors TV show, the leagues top assistant coach will, indeed, bask in the spotlight. For the first time, the AP will present a separate award to the assistant coach voted to have done the best job in 2014.And there are plenty of candidates.Todd Bowles, Arizona defensive co-ordinatorAlready being looked at for upcoming head coaching vacancies, Bowles has worked wonders with an injury-ravaged unit. The Cardinals (11-3) stay in — or win — games more because of their defence and coaching than anything.Adam Gase, Denver offensive co-ordinator.Gases unit now has become as much run-oriented as Peyton Manning-oriented, and its working. Remember, this is the guy who got some wins out of Tim Tebow back in 2011.I think hes used the knowledge of the coaches that hes worked with, you know, the offensive coaches especially, and the Nick Sabans that have been instrumental in some of his coaching philosophies, Manning says. Hes used those to apply to his coaching style and its helped him a lot.Like Bowles, Gases name will come up in the January chase for head coaching positions, particularly for teams with a young QB in need of development.Teryl Austin, Detroit defensive co-ordinatorThe phrase Lions impressive defence is something new around the Motor City. Austin has it ranked second overall and first against the run in his first year on the job.Detroits secondary was expected to be a weak link, but it has yielded only 238 points. Austin has cultivated balance and gotten it.James Campen, Green Bay offensive lineWhen you have a prized quarterback such as Aaron Rodgers and a stud runner in Eddie Lacy, one thing that can neutralize them in Titletown is weak blocking. The Packers had been so-so on the offensive line for too long, but Campen has helped develop youngsters who could become anchors: tackle David Bakhtiari and rookie centre Corey Linsley.Rod Marinelli, Dallas defensive co-ordinator; Bill Callahan, Dallas offensive co-ordinator/offensive line; Scott Linehan, Dallas passing gameA three-pronged candidacy.The Cowboys dedication to DeMarco Murray, like Rodgers a leading contender for MVP, and the running game lifts both Callahan and Linehan into consideration. Callahan oversees perhaps the best line in the NFL, and Linehan has avoided the temptation to put a heavy burden on QB Tony Romo. <a href="http://www.thebostonbruinshockey.com/jimmy-hayes-hockey-jersey/" target="_blank">Jimmy Hayes Jersey</a>. ut the most eye-catching work in Big D has come from its, well, Big D. Expectations for the Cowboys defence couldnt have been lower entering 2014. Yet Marinelli has moulded an unheralded (some would say undertalented) group into a winner.Dan Quinn, Seattle defensive co-ordinatorThis one is simple: Seattles sometimes overpowering defence makes the Seahawks tough to derail. Its doing exactly what it needs to do for Seattle to repeat, despite personnel losses to injury and free agency.Dave Fipp, Philadelphia special teams co-ordinatorNo discounting the additions of Darren Sproles, Josh Huff, Chris Maragos, Cody Parkey and Bryan Braman, Fipp has done a strong job making his groupings, well, special. The Eagles have a huge edge on opponents in punt/kickoff returns and coverage, and have four runbacks for TDs.Todd Haley, Pittsburgh offensive co-ordinatorIf anyone said Pittsburgh leads the league in something, the natural instinct for the home of the Steel Curtain would be to think defence. Nope. Haley has helped Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and LeVeon Bell into position to set franchise marks.Gary Kubiak, Baltimore offensive co-ordinatorRay Rice, suspended. Barnard Pierce, hurt and then ineffective.So Kubiak turned to journeyman Justin Forsett, and Forsett is among the league leaders in rushing.The O-line has been outstanding, allowing only 16 sacks.The biggest thing with Gary is the confidence he gives the unit, QB Joe Flacco says. I think Gary does a great job of doing that and seeing what theyre giving us out there and making adjustments and making calls on the fly.Jim Schwartz, Buffalo defensive co-ordinator; Pepper Johnson, Buffalo defensive lineSchwartz might have flopped as a head man in Detroit, but hes rediscovered his tough defensive mastery here. No better evidence than the 21-13 win over the high-powered Packers last Sunday.His biggest helper has been Johnson, who took over a topnotch unit and has made it even better.Bill Kollar, Houston defensive lineSure, J.J. Watt, another leading MVP contender, would make any coach look good. Listen to what Watt has to say about his mentor:Every single day is something new with him. Im always learning and Im always improving as a player. I owe a lot of my credit to him.Such an endorsement might make Kollar award worthy. Well find out on Super Bowl eve.___AP Pro Football Writers Arnie Stapleton and Rob Maaddi, and Sports Writers Kristie Rieken, Noah Trister, Will Graves, John Wawrow, David Ginsburg, Genaro Armas, Schuyler Dixon and Tim Booth contributed to this story.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysnflchinacheap.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalenfljerseyscheapauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.authenticjerseysnflwholesalecheap.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysnflchina.net/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="http://www.nflcheapauthenticchinajerseys.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.chinajerseysnhlwholesale.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.chinacheapjerseysauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

The Bosnians, who were already relegated from the tournament, took a commanding 2-0 lead with goals from Edin Dzeko in the 23rd and Miralem Pjanic in the 53rd before Iran hit back in a desperate late bid to qualify for the second round. Reza Ghoochannejhad gave some hope to the Iranians with a tap-in goal in the 81st, but Avdija Vrsaljevic replied immediately with his low shot from the edge of the area to restore the two-goal lead. Iran needed a win to have any chance of advancing. &quot;Sorry to our opponents, but this was also an important win for us so we could hold our heads up high leaving this tournament,&quot; Bosnia-Herzegovina coach Safet Susic said. &quot;Throughout the match we were those who wanted to win more.&quot; The Bosnians were already out of contention at their first World Cup following consecutive losses to Argentina and Nigeria. Iran coach Carlos Queiroz brought in strikers Khosro Heydari and Karim Ansari Fard in the second half but the shift in system only netted one goal. Playing at its fourth World Cup, the Iran squad faced criticism for its dour defensive tactics after a 0-0 draw against Nigeria. The Iranians also spent much of their game against Argentina packing the defence, but created several chances on counterattacks and nearly caused a major upset before conceding a late winner by Lionel Messi. &quot;I was a bit surprised by Iran, they needed a win and they were calculating,&quot; Susic said. &quot;That backfired for them. Maybe they could not change their habits.&quot; Queiroz said he could not change the defensive style with the players he had available. &quot;Susic has his opinion,&quot; Queiroz said. &quot;The next time I will give him the opportunity to train Iran and Ill train Bosnia, and we will see.&quot; &quot;He has players who play in Roma and Manchester City, and whom do I have?&quot; he askedd, referring to Pjanic and Dzeko and Iranian players who mostly play in Iranian and smaller European clubs. <a href="http://www.nbamavericksauthority.com/dennis-smith-jr-mavericks-jersey-c-17/" target="_blank">Dennis Smith Jr. Jersey</a>. &quot;You squeeze an orange and then you see that you have players who cannot be squeezed no more,&quot; he said. &quot;We played to the limits of our mental and physical capacities, and Im very proud of my players,&quot; Queiroz said. Bosnia created most of the chances in the match, with Dzeko -- criticized for missing several opportunities during Bosnias earlier two matches -- firing a volley over the bar in the third minute, and then heading straight at the Iran goalkeeper from close range. He opened the scoring in the 23rd with a low shot from 20 yards (meters) that deflected in off the post. Pjanic doubled the lead a half hour later with an angled shot from inside the box. Irans only genuine chances came after its only goal of the tournament came in the last frantic minutes, with Ghoochannejhads close-range shot narrowly missing late. Queiroz said he believes that Bosnia was the best team in the group. &quot;The best team of the group did not qualify, with all my respects to Argentina and Nigeria,&quot; he said. &quot;Today, they played on another level.&quot; Asmir Begovic, who made 11 appearances for Canadas under-20 team, started in goal for Bosnia. &quot;So happy to finished off our World Cup with a win!&quot; Begovic tweeted sfter the match. &quot;Congratulations to everybody on out 1st ever win at the World Cup!

EAST RUTHERFORD, N. <a href="http://www.redsauthenticproshop.com/authentic-johnny-cueto-reds-jersey/" target="_blank">Johnny Cueto Jersey</a> .J. -- New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz has shed the protective boot hes been sporting, and expects to play in the regular-season opener against the Dallas Cowboys Sept. 8. &quot;Feeling good,&quot; Cruz said Tuesday, a day after the boot came off his injured left foot. &quot;Its been better, feels a lot better, a lot of the swelling has gone down. Obviously, looking forward to better days coming.&quot; Cruz was sidelined more than a week after hurting his heel in a preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Aug. 18. He jumped to catch a pass from Eli Manning on the opening series and a defender landed on his foot. Two days later, he used crutches to walk to the podium with his foot in a boot. Cruz missed the third preseason game, vs. the Jets, and will also skip Thursdays exhibition finale at New England. He hopes to practice Monday and play the following weekend. &quot;Absolutely. I knew initially that it was just a small bump in the road and that I just needed some time off to get some down time off the boot and off the foot and get things going the right way,&quot; Cruz said. &quot;Dallas was definitely a target date for me and I knew that I had to be ready. I still have some time to recuperate. It feels even better.&quot; The only pain he has is getting out of bed. &quot;Theres swelling in the morning when I first put my foot down, thats about it,&quot; the Paterson, N.J., native said. &quot;Other than that, once I get it going and get it warmed up, it seems to loosen up a little bit and feel better. We still want to take it easy and take it one day at a time.&quot; Cruz is still getting treatment on the foot, including an exercise where he has to pick up marbles with his feet. Cruz has led the Giants in receiving the past two seasons, catching a combined 168 passes for 2,628 yards and 19 touchdowns. He scored one of the two touchdowns the offence has generated this preseason. The offence will improve, Cruz insists. &quot;With the amount of reps that we get, its hard to develop a rhythm,&quot; he said. &quot;We just need to get it going a little bit and I think our balance isnt there yet; our balance of running the ball and passing it. Slowly but surely, well get that back. Days of practice and getting everybody back out there, I think that will help us. &quot;But I think we just need to build some fluidity within the offence.&quot; ---- NOTES: Coach Tom Coughlin said his first team will play up to 15 plays against the Patriots. ... James Brewer will start at left guard with Kevin Boothe moving to centre in the new alignment on the offensive line. ... DE Jason Pierre-Paul took some snaps on Tuesday, one day after coming off the physically unable to perform list. ... Rookie DE Damontre Moore returned to practice for the first time since hurting a shoulder in the preseason opener. <a href="http://www.redsauthenticproshop.com/authentic-ken-griffey-reds-jersey/" target="_blank">Ken Griffey Jersey</a> . -- The Oakland Raiders expect to have starting right tackle Tony Pashos back for Sundays game against the Houston Texans. <a href="http://www.redsauthenticproshop.com/authentic-adam-duvall-reds-jersey/" target="_blank">Adam Duvall Jersey</a> .

Happs hold on a spot in the Blue Jays starting rotation is in question.COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State had just stayed unbeaten with a record-setting victory that also clinched a spot in the Big Ten title game, and Urban Meyer was already thinking about next weeks grudge match at Michigan. &quot;Its time to get ready for the rivalry game,&quot; Meyer said. Braxton Miller ran for 144 yards and two touchdowns and passed for two more Saturday to lead the fourth-ranked Buckeyes to a snowy 42-14 victory over Indiana, extending their school-record win streak to 23 in a row. The victory, played at times in swirling clouds of snow, put the Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0) in the conference championship game on Dec. 7 against Michigan State. Carlos Hyde became the first running back to go over 1,000 yards rushing in Meyers 12 years as a head coach. He ran for 117 yards and two scores. Ohio States defence throttled the Hoosiers (4-7, 2-5), who came in averaging 39 points a game. Flurries fell throughout with temperatures in the 20s. Half of the crowd of 104,990 had left by the time Ohio State built a 28-0 halftime lead. In the waning moments, the remaining fans loudly sang, &quot;We dont give a damn for the whole state of Michigan.&quot; The Buckeyes close out the regular season at The Big House next Saturday against their archrivals. Miller completed 11 of 17 passes for 160 yards with one interception, hitting Dontre Wilson and Devin Smith on scoring passes of 24 and 39 yards, respectively, in the second half. Miller was still in the game early in the fourth quarter, and his long pass to Smith made it 42-0 as the Buckeyes tried to grab the attention of BCS poll voters with a landslide margin. It was one rough day for the Hoosiers. Kicker Mitch Ewald came in a perfect 8 for 8 on field goals, but his 42-yard attempt in the second quarter clanked off the right upright and a 36-yard try in the third quarter did the same thing off the left upright. The Hoosiers points came on Nate Sudfelds 4-yard pass to Shane Wynn and 25-yard pass to DAngelo Roberts in the final 6 minutes. Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier was credited with 20 tackles, including five for negative yardage. After scoring at least 28 points in 10 consecutive games, the Hoosiers have managed just 17 points in consecutive losses to Wisconsin (51-3) and the Buckeyes. Sudfeld completed 25 of 41 passes for 224 yards, and Tre Roberson was 7 for 12 for 96 yardds. <a href="http://www.redsauthenticproshop.com/authentic-zack-cozart-reds-jersey/" target="_blank">Zack Cozart Jersey</a>. Roberson also ran for 79 yards on 12 carries. Ohio State has won the last 19 meetings with Indiana on the field (the 2010 victory was later vacated as part of NCAA sanctions), dating to a 27-27 tie in 1990. The Buckeyes snapped a tie for the school record with the 1967-69 Ohio State teams, which also won 22 in a row. That streak ended with a painful loss at Michigan -- a defeat that touched off the famous &quot;Ten-Year War&quot; between Woody Hayes and his former assistant and nemesis, Bo Schembechler. Meyer will undoubtedly remind his charges of that defeat in the coming days. The Buckeyes inflicted enough damage in the first half to take care of the Hoosiers. They took the opening kickoff and needed just five plays to cover 71 yards in just over 2 minutes. On the third snap from centre, Miller found a gaping hole on a quarterback draw and picked up 41 yards. Hyde then sidestepped a tackler at the line of scrimmage and thundered into the end zone on a 16-yard run. It was 14-0 soon after Indiana punted. Miller scampered through another huge hole and then vaulted into the end zone at the right post on a 37-yard score. Indiana drove into Ohio State territory three times in the first half but couldnt register a point. The Hoosiers had to punt on fourth and 9 just inside midfield, gave up the ball on four incompletions from the 25 and then drove inside the 30 but Sudfeld was sacked by Michael Bennett on fourth and 6. Meanwhile, the Buckeyes tacked on two more scores -- by the same two players who scored earlier. The third TD of the game was set up by Bradley Robys blocked punt that Ron Tanner recovered at the Hoosiers 8. Two plays later, Guiton took the snap and then flipped the ball to Miller on a reverse. He angled for the right corner and was upended by cornerback Tim Bennett at the goal line, almost placing the balls nose into the end zone as he came crashing down on his head. Late in the half, the Buckeyes utilized their hurry-up offence to cover 69 yards in four plays. Hyde rumbled for 13 yards, Miller faked a handoff and raced 17 yards and then Miller hit tight end Jeff Heuerman over the middle for 34 yards. Hyde was barely distracted when he carried the last 5 yards to make it 28-0. During pregame ceremonies, 19 Ohio State seniors were introduced before playing their final home game. <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysnflchinacheap.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalenfljerseyscheapauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.authenticjerseysnflwholesalecheap.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysnflchina.net/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="http://www.nflcheapauthenticchinajerseys.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.chinajerseysnhlwholesale.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.chinacheapjerseysauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '
