CINCINNATI -- Vontaze Burfict was a non-entity during preseason, not even getting on the field while the Bengals figured out how theyll do without him. Holger Badstuber Jersey . Now that hes gone on a three-game suspension, they wont talk about him, either.The Bengals put their combustible linebacker on the suspension list Saturday as part of their moves to get down to the 53-man roster limit. Burfict got a three-game suspension from the NFL following his hit to receiver Antonio Browns head during Cincinnatis playoff meltdown against the Steelers last season.Coach Marvin Lewis didnt play him during the preseason, allowing the defense to get accustomed to his absence. Lewis abruptly cut off questions about the linebacker on Saturday during a conference call after the team made its roster moves.Were not going to discuss what Vontaze can and cant do, Lewis said. Were not going to talk about anything to do with Vontaze. Hes no longer on the team right now.Burfict missed the first six games last season while recovering from knee surgery. He started the final 10 regular-season games, plus an 18-16 playoff loss to the Steelers. Burficts hit to Browns head on an incomplete pass drew a personal foul that moved the Steelers into range for the winning field goal. The NFL suspended him for that hit and several others during his career that drew fines.Cincinnati allowed the second-fewest points in the league last season and brought back the majority of the unit.The Bengals placed defensive tackle Marcus Hardison on injured reserve with a shoulder injury on Saturday as part of its moves to reach the roster limit. They have a couple more moves yet to make with injured players.They kept running back Cedric Peerman and rookie cornerback William Jackson III on the roster for now. Peerman is their top special teams player -- he made the Pro Bowl last season -- and is expected to recover from a broken left forearm. Jackson, their top draft pick, tore a pectoral muscle but could be healthy enough to play during the season.Teams can designate an injured player who is eligible to return after eight weeks if hes cleared medically.We feel that William Jackson and Ced Peerman, from what weve been told, have an opportunity to possibly come back at some point during the season, so were going to try to keep that option open for us, Lewis said.Hardison was a fourth-round pick last year, when he was slowed by a knee injury and wasnt active for games. He was hoping to earn a spot in the Bengals line rotation, but suffered a shoulder injury during the third preseason game.Its a shame when a guy has to go through that two years in a row, Lewis said.Cincinnati released veteran cornerback Chykie Brown and waived 18 players, most of them rookies.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Julian Green Jersey .ca! Kerry, Two nights after the Scott-Eriksson incident in Buffalo, the Bruins returned home to play San Jose. In that game, Zdeno Chara put a check on Tommy Wingels that clearly targeted his head. Arturo Vidal Jersey . The Americans, skipped by John Shuster, seized the advantage in the eighth end by scoring five points for a 7-3 lead. The Czechs pulled two back in the ninth, but Shusters team of third Jeff Isaacson, second Jared Zezel and lead John Landsteiner ended with another point to secure the last Olympic berth on offer. http://www.fcbayernsoccerproshop.com/c-13-juan-bernat-fc-bayern-munich-jersey.aspx .Y. -- Marcell Dareus and the Buffalo Bills defence made life miserable for Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco. SEATTLE -- The Houston Astros continue to have the Seattle Mariners number, so much so that they might consider changing their area code to 206.Houston extended its winning streak over Seattle to five with a 7-3 win on Friday night. Since 2014, the Astros hold a 13-10 record at Safeco Field, which is quickly becoming their favorite road ballpark.George Springer and Jose Altuve have been particularly successful at Safeco, and the duo combined for two hits and three runs Friday.We didnt start the year like we wanted, and thats why people are surprised by how well were playing now, Altuve said. This is the team youre going to see every day. Were going to play hard.The Mariners (45-45) will try to end the skid against Houston during a rare Saturday afternoon game. It marks the first time this season that Seattle will play a home game on a Saturday afternoon.The Mariners plan on starting veteran Hisashi Iwakuma, who is currently the only right-hander in the Seattle rotation.Iwakuma will be flanked by left-handed starters James Paxton, Wade LeBlanc, Wade Miley and Mike Montgomery for one more trip through the rotation, but help could be on the way.Seattle ace Felix Hernandez made a successful rehab start at Triple-A Tacoma on Friday and could be close to returning to the rotation. Wednesdays game against the Chicago White Sox -- another afternoon tilt -- seems like the target date for Hernandezs return after hes spent the good part of eight weeks on the disabled list. Rafinha Jersey. Im ready to go, Hernandez told reporters after his outing in Tacoma. ... Ill be back (on Wednesday), for sure.The Astros (49-41) send young right-hander Lance McCullers to the mound.McCullers has already beaten the Mariners once this season. He allowed just one run over seven innings in a 2-1 win over Seattle at Houston a few days before the All-Star Break.The Astros swept Seattle in a three-game series at Houston and have taken full control of second place in the American League West. The Mariners led the division for most of April and May but fell behind the Rangers in early June. Two weeks ago, Houston moved past Seattle and now holds a four-game lead over the Mariners. Texas leads the Astros by 4 1/2.Seattles Iwakuma has an 0-4 record and 7.50 ERA over his past five starts against the Astros. He is 0-2 with a 7.20 ERA against Houston this season.Seattle is likely to play the game without shortstop Ketel Marte, who injured his ankle sliding into third base Friday night. Marte is listed as day-to-day, but Mariners manager Scott Servais said he would probably sit out Saturdays game while utility man Shawn OMalley got the start.Marte is hitting .273 this season and has settled in as the leadoff hitter since veteran outfielder Norichika Aoki got sent to the minors late last month.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Asics Gel Kinsei 6 Mens . -- Raise a glass to Floridas defense. Maybe even the whole bottle.The 14th-ranked Gators used a dominant defensive effort -- maybe their best of the season -- to dismantle Georgia 24-10 on Saturday.The unit stuffed Nick Chubb, holding him to 20 yards on nine carries, and rattled freshman quarterback Jacob Eason. The Bulldogs finished with a season-low 164 yards -- about 239 below their average.Defensively, what do you say? Florida coach Jim McElwain asked.Playing just their second game in four weeks, the Gators won their third straight in the Worlds Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. It was Floridas 21st victory against the Bulldogs in the last 27 years.McElwain toasted his defense after the latest one.We wanted to try to make them as one-dimensional as possible, and the dimension we wanted was to try to make them throw the ball, he said. Our gap control in the run game was pretty spot on.The Gators (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) forced seven three-and-outs and stopped two fourth-down plays on Georgias final two drives.The biggest mismatch was up front, where Floridas defense controlled the line of scrimmage. Thats nothing new for Georgia (4-4, 2-4), whose O-line has been a target for criticism all season.The Bulldogs lost for the fourth time in their last five games, and first-year coach Kirby Smart fell to 1-6 in the series as a player and coach.McElwain improved to 2-0, including a win against his former colleague and close friend . Smart and McElwain worked at Alabama (2008-11) together, and the Tide went 48-6 and claimed two national championships with them as coordinators.Florida did nothing spectacular offensively, managing 231 yards on a warm, sun-soaked afternoon.People pick this team apart quite a bit and this and that, McElwain said. Guys, this is a good football team. The Florida Gators are a good team, all right? Ill go with these guys against anybody and well figure out a way to get it done, and thats the way they are in that locker room.The Gators scored three touchdowns thanks partly to solid field position -- Smart called his punt unit a thrill a minute -- and that proved to be plenty for the defense.Its just frustrating, Chubb said. We couldnt really get things going. I felt like it was always three-and-out and we werent getting in a rhythm or anything, so it feels pretty bad.THE TAKEAWAYFLORIDA: Remains atop the SECs Eastern Division, but the road to Atlanta stiffens with games remaining against Arkansas, South Carolina and LSU. Win them all, and the Gators will return to the league title game.GEORGIA: Continues to be a work in progress in Smarts first season. The Bulldogs played well defensively for the second straight week but had nothing to show for it.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Gators, who moved up one spot in the Top 25 despite not playing last week, could inch closer to the top 10 . The Gators havent been ranked in the top 10 since losing to in-state rival Florida State last November.RETURN TRIPOakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio was in the stadium -- and celebrating a win -- for the second time in less than a week. Del Rio, who spent nine years as Jacksonvilles head coach before getting fired in 2011, was on hand to watch his son, Luke, play . Del Rios Raiders beat the Jaguars 33-16 last Sunday. Oakland spent the week in Florida and plays at Tampa Bay on Sunday. Del Rio attended the game with his wife and two of his three daughters.WELCOME BACK, HBCRetired coach Steve Spurrier attended his first Florida-Georgia game in 15 years. The Head Ball Coach, who won the 1966 Heisman Trophy while playing for the Gators and later spent 12 years coaching his alma mater, watched the game from retiring athletic director Jeremy Foleys suite. New AD Steve Stricklin was there, too. It was Spurriers first time at the stadium since his final season at Florida in 2001. Spurrier, who stepped down as South Carolinas coach in 2015, is now serving as an ambassador to his alma mater.UP NEXTFLORIDA: Plays at Arkansas for the first time since 2008. The Gators are 9-1 against the Razorbacks, including nine consecutive wins since Arkansas joined the SEC in 1992.GEORGIA: Plays at Kentucky. The Bulldogs have won six in a row and 17 of 19 in the series.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Mens .

We interrupt our ongoing 183-part series, The Year of the Cubs, for this important reminder:ESPN investigators have uncovered the shocking news that 29 other teams did in fact play a regular season this year. Nike Free 5.0 Tilbud Dame . And we just want to assure all of you out there that we did notice. Seriously.So now heres the proof: Its time to look back on the defining themes, numbers and memories of every team in baseball -- except, well, that team. So maybe Bill Murray, Eddie Vedder and John Cusack wont regard this lovely retrospective as their favorite baseball story of the year. But for the rest of non-Cubbie Land civilization, hey, this is for you.Youre welcome!NL EASTWashington Nationals2016 plotline: The year Bryce Harper didnt exactly zoom by Mike Trout (but the Nats zoomed by the Mets anyway)Back in April, we were pretty sure -- and the Nationals were even more sure -- that their man Bryce Harper was ready to take over the world, and theyd be riding his cruise liner all the way to October. Well, the October part worked out great. But the Nationals would like to thank Daniel Murphy (.347/.391/.596/.987) for kindly stepping in to perform the role of Bryce Harper in this evenings performance, because the real Bryce Harper has had an incredibly odd year.He has hit fewer home runs all season (24) than Brian Dozier has hit since the All-Star break (28)! He has a lower slugging percentage (.444) than Jonathan Villar! He has been worth approximately half as many wins above replacement (1.8) as his rookie teammate, Trea Turner, a guy who hasnt even been in the big leagues for 70 games! And thanks to all those walks Harper still draws, he has managed to do something that only the legendary Adam Dunn had been able to do in this century -- roll up a .375 on-base percentage despite a batting average that has sunk below .245. Yeah, he has almost certainly been playing hurt. But we never saw any of this coming.New York Mets2016 plotline: Who kidnapped their wonderful rotation?If wed told you back on April 1 that Robert Gsellman, Seth Lugo, Sean Gilmartin, Rafael Montero and Gabriel Ynoa would make 13 more starts for the Mets this September than Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Steven Matz, what would you have thought? Probably not: I wonder which of those guys will start Games 3 and 4 of the Division Series!But that has been the unlikely story of the Mets season. A team built around its young-stud rotation lost all its young studs except Noah Syndergaard -- no, Bartolo doesnt count -- and survived! Incredibly, the Mets went only 29-34 in games started by Harvey, deGrom and Matz this season. And theyre probably going to get back to the postseason anyway. Who knew!Philadelphia Phillies2016 plot line: Back to the futureLike pretty much all Phillies seasons in the past 129 years, this one lasted just a little too long. Like about 120 games too long. After 41 games, a team that started the season fending off charges of tanking somehow found itself at 24-17. In real life. That was a better record than both of the 2015 World Series teams owned at the time. But then, unfortunately ... the season kept going. Whereupon the Phillies took a wrong turn and just kept going. Theyre 46-70 since then, with a minus-146 run differential. So for all the talk about their hot prospects and bright future, what should they make of these past 116 games?The good news: They found two rotation building blocks in Vince Velasquez (10.44 K/9 IP) and Jerad Eickhoff (.154 average against his curveball, third-best in the NL behind Jon Lester and Madison Bumgarner). The unlikely duo of Tommy Joseph and Freddy Galvis both hit 20-plus homers. And their bat-flip king center fielder, Odubel Herrera, made the All-Star team. But the bad news: Their best young pitcher, Aaron Nola, has a sprained elbow ligament and an uncertain future. Their rising star at third base, Maikel Franco, took a step backward. And they somehow broke their team record in strikeouts while seeing the fewest pitches in the league. Moral of the story: They still have a lonnnggg way to go.Atlanta Braves2016 plotline: Goodbye to Turner Field -- but not to FreddieThe Braves soon-to-be late, great Turner Field was the scene of 38 postseason games in its 20 seasons of big league life. (Only the old Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park hosted more in that time.) Freddie Freeman played in just three of those games. But Freeman has towered over the final season in his ballpark, and we havent given nearly enough love to his season. So guess what? Thats about to change.While playing on a 92-loss team, in the middle of what was one of baseballs worst lineups for most of the year, the Braves sweet-swinging first baseman has managed to lead the league in extra-base hits (81). (The only other Braves to do that in the past 50 years: Hank Aaron and Dale Murphy.) And just three other Braves since 1900 have had an 80-XBH season with a slash line as good as Freemans .306/.404/.572. They would be Aaron, Chipper Jones and Tommy Holmes. But thats not all. Youll find Freeman in the top three in the league in slugging, OPS, OPS+, times on base and wins above replacement. So in the past year, he has gone from wrist-surgery candidate to Human Trade Rumor to a man with an outside MVP case. And lets just say thatll work!Miami Marlins2016 plotline: Hope turns to sadnessIt was a year of so much promise. It ended in so much tragedy. So how do the Marlins ever get over the loss of Jose Fernandez? Is that even possible?In the final season of his all-too-short life, Fernandez struck out 253 hitters in just 182? innings. That computes to a strikeout rate of 12.49 per nine innings, the third-best by any right-handed pitcher in the history of baseball. And the record will show that over his four big league seasons, he struck out an astonishing 31.2 percent of all the hitters he faced. That ranks No. 1 among every starting pitcher who ever took the mound (and threw 400 innings or more).Jose Fernandez was that special. But it wasnt talent alone that makes him so irreplaceable. The charisma. The smile. The ability to touch people of all ages, all cultures, all walks of life. The story behind his incredible journey to this time and place. He was a once-in-a-lifetime gift to a franchise that embraced everything about him. Now his death leaves a hole the Marlins cant possibly fill. And neither can their entire heartbroken sport.NL CENTRALSt. Louis Cardinals2016 plotline: Redbirds dig the long ballThe 2016 Cardinals may not pitch quite like they used to. And they may not catch the ball quite like they used to. But well say this for them: Theyve perfected their home run trots. They lead the league in homers -- after finishing 11th in homers last year. And thats just the half of it.For one thing, theyve already become the first National League team in history to have eight players hit at least 15 home runs. For another, they have a shot, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, to become just the sixth team since 1900 to hit 90 more home runs one year than the year before. And then there is this mind-blowing stat: Their pinch hitters have combined (along with a .324/.387/.601 slash line that gives them roughly the same OPS as Mike Trout) for 16 home runs in 238 at-bats. Which means Cardinals pinch hitters have a better home run ratio (one every 14.9 ABs) than the man who leads the league in homers, Nolan Arenado (one every 15.1). Right. Of course they do!Pittsburgh Pirates2016 plotline: When do the stars come out?All any team asks as it heads into a season is that its stars be stars. So if Andrew McCutchen had won an MVP award and Gerrit Cole had won a Cy Young for the 2016 Pirates, no one in Pittsburgh would have been shocked. But now that theyve seen what those two stars actually wound up doing this year? Now that was shocking.As our buddy David Schoenfield wrote last month, McCutchens fall from one of baseballs best players to a .255/.337/.432 kind of guy is pretty much unprecedented for a player with his career path. Everyone has denied that hes hurting. But he clearly hasnt been the same since an early-season thumb injury. Cole, on the other hand, made three trips to the disabled list (the past two for an elbow strain). Which helps explain his rough second half (2-6, 5.48 ERA). But it doesnt make the Pirates miss their fourth straight trip to the postseason any less.Milwaukee Brewers2016 plotline: Catch a whiff of thisHey, its the Year of the Strikeout. So who embodies that trend better than the 2016 Brewers, a team with an offense that seems about to set the all-time record for most whiffs in a season any minute now? But a lot more went on here than just relentless swinging and missing.Jonathan Lucroy was traded to Cleveland. Oh wait, no he wasnt. But he still headed out the door (to Texas). Ryan Braun almost got traded for Yasiel Puig. But in the end, he never went anywhere. Jonathan Villar, a fellow most baseball fans still wouldnt know from Jonathan Hornblower, was closing in on joining Rickey Henderson, Joe Morgan and Eric Davis in the 20-homer, 60-steal club. Junior Guerra (9-3, 2.81 ERA) turned into one of the greatest 31-year-old rookies of all time. Center fielder Keon Broxton caught everything between Lake Michigan and Bud Seligs house. And Tyler Thornburg turned himself into a closer by allowing 32 hits in 64? innings. So if you look past all the Ks, this is a team putting some pieces in place.Cincinnati Reds2016 plotline: The pen wasnt mightier than the first basemanOn one hand, theres Joey Votto. Hes a big fan of Life After the All-Star Break. His slash line since the break: .410/.495/.663. Amazing. If he keeps this up, he could be just the sixth player since the invention of All-Star breaks to hit .400 after one. And he has a shot to join Ted Williams and Barry Bonds as the only men to hit .400, with a .500 on-base percentage, post-ASG. But you might recall Votto also had a .535 OBP last year in the second half! Want to guess the only men to do that two years in a row? Yep. Williams (1941-42) and Bonds (2001-02). Wow.But ... on the other hand, theres that Reds bullpen. Holy moly. If we disqualify the Rockies from this competition, you can make an argument that no NL bullpen has ever taken the beating this pen has taken: a 5.04 ERA, 31 losses, 24 blown saves and 99 gopher balls served up. Since the dawn of the modern save rule, there are a handful of other NL bullpens that have absorbed that many losses, with an ERA that high. But 99 homers? No NL bullpen ever has done that. Matter of fact, only two have even come within 25 of that. So how do you spell relief? Not like this!NL WESTLos Angeles Dodgers2016 plotline: Has there ever been a first-place team like this?Maybe you can explain the wild and crazy season that led the NL West champs, the Dodgers, to the top of the standings. But were not sure we can.They got better (38-24) after Clayton Kershaw got hurt than before he got hurt (41-36)? Yup. ... They havent had the same five starters go around the rotation twice, in the same order, in over three months? That would also be true, amazingly enough. ... Speaking of starters, theyve ripped through 15 starting pitchers this season? Hey, of course they have. Before last season, only one playoff team in the division-play era (the 1989 Giants) had ever used that many starters in one year. Now the Dodgers have done it two seasons in a row! ... So its only fitting that Dave Roberts just became the first manager ever to hook two different pitchers in one year who had gotten through at least seven hitless innings. If youre busy reinventing the concept of starting pitching, it goes with the territory! ... Finally, if this team hasnt set a record for program sales, it isnt for lack of trying. The Dodgers made more than 200 roster moves this season. We kid you not. We counted them ourselves. Thats more than eight a week! ... Whoa. What a year.San Francisco Giants2016 plotline: Was it still an even year after July?The historians will always be able to remind us that the team with the best record at the 2016 All-Star break was not the Cubs. It was those San Francisco Giants, of course (at 57-33) -- because hey, it was an even year, right? And thats what they do.Until they stopped doing it, that is. No team in history has ever had the best record in baseball before the All-Star break and the worst record in baseball after the All-Star break. And thanks to the Twins ability to keep relentlessly losing, the Giants will probably escape that fate. But just barely. On the other hand, do they even want to know that just five teams in the division-play era ever missed the playoffs after starting 57-33 or better? Thats a fact. And two of them were the 1978 Red Sox team that lost to the Bucky Dent Yankees in a tiebreaker classic and the 1993 Giants team that won 103 games but went home because they did that in the last season before the invention of wild cards. So if the Giants dont make it into at least the second wild-card spot, we can only see one good thing that could come out of that: They wont have to answer any more odd-year/even-year questions for the rest of their lives.Colorado Rockies2016 plotline: The young and the altitude-lessDont look now, but theres something happening here, in the thin air of mile-high baseball. All of a sudden, the Rockies have some young dudes who can change the course of this franchise.Trevor Story is 23. He was leading the league in home runs before he hurt his thumb. ... David Dahl is 22. All he did was get a hit in the first 17 major league games he ever played in. ... Jon Gray is 24. In his first full season in the big leagues, hes piled up 185 strikeouts in 168 innings -- which would be the greatest strikeout ratio (10.09 per 9 IP) in Rockies history. ... Tyler Anderson is 26 and left-handed. Guess who leads all Rockies starters in ERA at Coors Field? Yessir, its him. Hes at 3.00 after 12 home starts. No one else is under 4.00. ... And theres one other player we ought to mention. Hes 25 years old. Hes the best defensive third baseman on earth. And hes about to lead the league in homers for the second year in a row. That would be Nolan Arenado. The face of the franchise. ... So does anyone else think theres a future here, after reading all that? You would be correct!San Diego Padres2016 plotline: Suspended animationWhen we asked one NL executive what stood out to him about the 2016 Padres, he laughed and quipped: Can I get back to you in 30 days? But in truth, theres nothing fun and lighthearted to see here. The general manager of the Padres got suspended by Major League Baseball, without pay, for 30 days -- over improper handling of medical information supplied to the Boston Red Sox before the trade that sent pitcher Drew Pomeranz to Boston. And all you need to know about that suspension is that the widespread reaction in other front offices was: Thats all he got? Thirty days?As Buster Olney reported, multiple sources have told ESPN that the Red Sox were not the only team that complained. And whether or not those complaints lead to further discipline, this is one GM who has a lot of work to do with his peers to restore credibility.Arizona Diamondbacks2016 plotline: Seemed like a good idea at the timeWhen the Diamondbacks handed Zack Greinke 206.5 million bucks last December, they were pretty darned happy with themselves. When they traded the No. 1 pick in the draft (Dansby Swanson), their best defensive outfielder (Ender Inciarte) and pitching prospect Aaron Blair for Shelby Miller, they were just as delighted. They were the talk of baseball, all right -- until the season started.Then Miller (2-12, 6.52 ERA) pitched himself into Cy Yuk territory -- if not Centerpiece of the Worst Trade in History territory. Greinkes ERA in his new, not-so-friendly home park, is nearly 5.00. And, incredibly, he has given up more runs (44) in just his 13 starts in Arizona than he gave up all last season, home and away, in 32 starts as a Dodger (43). And how has it worked out for their team? Theyve spent exactly three days over .500 all season -- and they could wind up 30 games under .500. Thats how. Well, they did what they did with only the finest intentions -- but wow.AL EASTBoston Red Sox2016 plotline: Caution -- crooked numbers ahead What team rolls out the best offense in baseball? We can just stop that debate now, OK? The Red Sox are going to score nearly 900 runs this season -- and no one else in the American League is going to score 800. Theyve scored 108 more runs than the next-closest AL team (Cleveland). And that puts them on the verge of becoming just the second AL team in the past 65 years to outscore the AL runner-up by more than 100 runs. (The other: Last years Blue Jays.)So how have the Red Sox done it? Well, theyre the only team in baseball -- and the first since the 2005 Indians -- to get 50 extra-base hits from seven different players. ... They have three of the top five (Mookie Betts, Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz) in the AL batting race. ... And Betts and Pedroia should wind up as the only teammates with 200 hits apiece. ... In other news, Betts could win the MVP award. Hanley Ramirez could win the Comeback Player of the Year award. And Ortiz -- who leads the entire sport in slugging, OPS, doubles and extra-base hits -- is merely having the Greatest Farewell Season of All Time. So theres so much thunder emanating from this team, they ought to be televised by the Weather Channel.Toronto Blue Jays2016 plotline: Are we sure this is a hockey town?We could hit you with all sorts of numbers here -- from a team that has six mashers with 20-plus homers, two starters (Aaron Sanchez and J.A. Happ) who have won over 80 percent of their decisions and an underrated rotation that leads the American League in quality starts. But are you ready for number that best tells the story of the 2016 Blue Jays? Here goes: 3,382,299.No, thats not how many home runs theyve hit. Its the number of lovestruck fans who have bought tickets to sit in the Rogers Centre and crank up the greatest ballpark atmosphere in baseball. The Blue Jays havent drawn this many people into their home sweet dome since Joe Carters famous homer dropped to earth in 1993. Theyre about to lead the American League in attendance for the first time in over two decades. And theyve drawn more than 40,000 people to 36 of their past 38 home games (not even counting those three home games in Seattle last week). Amazing what can happen when a team flips this many bats, smokes this many baseballs into the fifth deck and assembles this many big personalities on one roster. Eh?Baltimore Orioles2016 plotline: Mumbo Trumbo The man who is going to lead the major leagues in home runs plays for the Orioles -- because, well, of course he does. That man would be Mark Trumbo (currently up to 46 dingers), who would be following last years leader, Chris Davis, who followed the previous years leader, Nelson Cruz. Unless somebody roars from behind to take the lead this weekend, the Orioles are going to become the first team in history to have three different big boppers top the majors in home runs in three consecutive seasons. But its their backstory that makes that even more astounding.Cruz, youll recall, showed up in Baltimore as a late-breaking, heavily discounted free agent, in 2014. And Davis arrived from Texas in 2011 via a not-very-ballyhooed trade for Koji Uehara. So the Orioles have long been renowned for discovering classic Camden Yards swings in the old bargain bin. But Trumbo has out-bargained them all, coming over in an offseason deal for a backup catcher (Steve Clevenger). Then, naturally, he went out and had a season (46 HR, 169 whiffs, just 1.3 wins above replacement) in which, essentially, he was more Chris Davis-esque than even Chris Davis. And on a team where just about everybody except the bat boys hits 20, 30 or 40 homers, boy, was he a perfect fit.New York Yankees2016 plotline: A tale of two seasons -- Dr. A-Rod and Mr. SanchezAddition by subtraction may be a murky mathematical concept. But every once in awhile, its a totally real baseball concept. So for your consideration, friends, we would like to present the fascinating story of the 2016 Yankees. By the time theyd finished their big pre-deadline sellathon of Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller and Carlos Beltran, they were just another .500 team (52-52), 104 games into their season. Then, a few days later, they announced they were booting that Alex Rodriguez guy out the nearest fire escape. And what happened with every subtraction? Magic happened. How about that?Theyre five games over .500 since The Sell-off. And we would tell you thats totally crazy, except then we remembered the two words that explain everything: Gary Sanchez. Their rookie catcher didnt hit his first home run until Aug. 10. And now he has 20! Our friends from the Elias Sports Bureau tell us that his 20 homers are the most by any player in history who hit zero homers before Aug. 1. They also tell us that the only Yankees who ever to hit 20 home runs between Aug. 10 and the end of any season were two nobodies named Babe Ruth (1927) and Roger Maris (1961). And then theres this: If Sanchez hits two more this weekend, he would tie Beltran for the team lead. According to Elias, only two players in the live ball era have ever led a team in homers (or tied) despite hitting none for that team before August: Mark Whiten, for the 1995 Phillies (11) and Danny Litwhiler, for the 1946 Braves (8). OK, come to think of it, were going to use that word, crazy, after all.Tampa Bays Rays2016 plotline: The Archery lessonYou think wins is an overrated stat? Hey, How about losses? We could probably get Chris Archer to testify for the prosecution in that case! The Rays ace owns a better ERA (4.02) this year than David Price (who is 17-9), Zack Greinke (who is 13-7) and Adam Wainwright (who is 13-9). But a lot of good that has done him. Its still going to say, on the old stat sheet, that Chris Archer lost 19 games this season. And in this goofy world we live in, how many people will remember to look past that and check out how he actually pitched?He may go down as the first 19-game loser since Darrell May in 2004. But he also almost led the league in strikeouts (with 233, second behind Justin Verlander). And we only uncovered three pitchers in modern history who could relate to that. Your complete list of pitchers (besides Archer) who lost 19 games or more, led their league in losses and punched out that many hitters: Phil Niekro (20 losses, 262 K in 1977), Mickey Lolich (19 losses, 230 K in 1970) and Big Ed Walsh (20 losses, 258 K in 1910). But if you think Archers loss total is unjust, he might want to check out Ed Walshs baseball-reference page sometime. Big Eds ERA the year he lost 20? Would you believe 1.27? Nice offense!AL CENTRALCleveland Indians2016 plotline: It wasnt the rotation after allFor a team that America concluded long ago was built around its spectacular rotation, the Indians sure have found a bunch of other ways to win. Just nobody outside Ohio seems to have caught on.You could win a lot of free beverages down at the local tavern from folks who have no idea that the Indians are second in the AL in runs scored. But thats an actual fact. ... Theyre also the only team in their league with four players who have stolen at least 15 bases. But word of that hasnt appeared to spread, either. ... Their team leader in OPS is, of course, Tyler Naquin. ... Their team leader in RBIs, Mike (Party At) Napoli, is a fellow who had never driven in 100 runs in 10 previous big league seasons. ... The guy who might have turned out to be their most important player, Jose Ramirez, has started games at four positions. ... And they just keep on winning, even though their biggest star, shortstop Francisco Lindor, is 3 for his past 50, and they havent started the same eight position players in the same eight positions for more than two games in a row all season. Wed guess theres an excellent chance you never noticed any of this. But watch out for the Indians, gang. We might be about to find out in October that this team has more 2015 Royals in it than 2015 Mets.Detroit Tigers2016 plotline: How Dave Dombrowski saved their seasonIs it possible that the most important week in the life of the 2016 Tigers actually took place in July 2015? Heck, of course its possible, or we wouldnt ask stuff like that. So what happened that week, you ask? Their former president of baseball operations, Dave Dombrowski, pulled the plug on their season and held quite the little clearance sale. Thats what. And while Dombrowski may be gone, the returns from that clearance sale are alive and well.There is the likely Rookie of the Year, Michael Fulmer. When Yoenis Cespedes exited for New York, he entered. Good thing. The Tigers are 19-7 in games Fulmer has started. ... There are also Daniel Norris and Matt Boyd. Theyre the answer to the trivia question, Who did the Tigers get back for David Price? The Tigers are currently 17-12 in games theyve started -- which is approximately the same winning percentage (.586) the Red Sox have when Price has pitched (20-14, .588). ... Now ask yourself this: Is there any chance -- repeat, any -- that this team would still be alive in this wild-card race if it hadnt been able to drop those three arms into its rotation? Our vote: Absotively not.Kansas City Royals2016 plotline: Down go the champsTheres a reason no team has won back-to-back World Series in 16 years. We can now sum up that reason pretty darned succinctly: Stuff happens. And it sure did happen to the Royals. You know that lineup that was etched on their drawing board when they left spring training? That group got to play together for exactly 14 games all season -- none of them after Mike Moustakas and Alex Gordon?crashed into each other chasing a foul ball on May 22. So that wasnt good.But despite all the calamities that befell them, it was really one disastrous month that kept them from at least showing up in another wild-card game. That month was July. When they went an inconceivable 7-19 -- and never recovered. Only one other defending World Series champ ever had a calendar month in which it went 12 games under .500, Elias reports. And that was a 1998 Marlins team that had just completed a Wayne Huizenga fire sale. Even more amazingly, the Royals staggered through that entire month without winning two games in a row. Just two other incumbent champs ever went through any month without a two-game winning streak, according to Elias -- the 1947 Cardinals (April) and the 1918 White Sox (September). But that wasnt the same thing, either, because those Cardinals played just 11 games that month, and those White Sox played only three. So we think its official. This was the worst month of baseball any defending championship team has ever played. A moment of silence, please.Chicago White Sox2016 plotline: Remember the scissorhandsWe would love to remember the 2016 season of this team for the Cy Young caliber work of Chris Sale and Jose Quintana. Or for those 40 home runs Todd Frazier launched. Or at least for the monster second half of the always-entertaining Jose Abreu. But is that what is going to come to mind when the world looks back on this year? Uhhh, we dont think so.No, the world is going to remember these White Sox for their extraordinary knack for inner turmoil. For Sale slicing up his favorite Turn Back the Clock Day jerseys. For Adam LaRoche deciding he would rather give back $13 million and retire than play for a team that wouldnt let his son hang out in the clubhouse. And for all his teammates threatening to boycott spring training if their team president, Kenny Williams, didnt apologize and roll back those LaRoche family restrictions. So has any team in recent memories dealt with two incidents that rebellious in the same season? Hmmm. None come to our mind. How about you?Minnesota Twins2016 plotline: Beware of the Dozier!Rogers Hornsby. Ryne Sandberg. Davey Johnson. And Brian Dozier: The only four men in history to hit 40 home runs in one season as second basemen. If thats a paragraph you ever thought you would read, youve apparently been moonlighting for the Psychics Hotline. But maybe it isnt as shocking as you think.After all, once Dozier learned the art of turning on the baseball a few years back, his home run total jumped every year -- from 18 to 23 to 28 to 42. But heres the part of his season thats totally mind-blowing: As recently as June 25, hed hit only?eight homers. And since then? He has pounded 34, in 85 games. Thats only one fewer homer than Babe Ruth hit in his last 85 games in 1927, the year he hit 60. So as we were saying earlier, Rogers Hornsby. Ryne Sandberg. Davey Johnson. Babe Ruth. And Brian Dozier. Those 42 homers may not have stopped the Twins from losing 100 games. But this is still one of the great stories of the year.AL WESTTexas Rangers2016 plotline: The power of oneOur ever-fascinating ESPN standings page tells us that, in a Pythagorean world -- or, to rephrase, a Bill James-orean world -- the Texas Rangers Expected Won-Lost Record indicates they should be three games over .500 (81-78) right now. Instead, due to circumstances beyond Pythagoras control (not to mention Bill James control), theyre actually 29 games over .500. We would happily ask Pythagoras how this is possible, except that he hasnt been available for comment since about 500 B.C. So well just have to tell you ourselves.In games decided by one run, the Texas Rangers are 36-11. Which, fortunately for them, is the greatest winning percentage (.766) in one-run games in the history of baseball. And because of that spiffy record in one-run games, the Rangers also have done something else thats incredibly hard to pull off: Theyve won 94 games (with three to play) -- despite a run differential of just plus-11. So you want to know how hard that is? The worst previous run differential in history by a 94-win team was plus-49, by the 1990 White Sox. And if the Rangers get to 95 wins this weekend, no team has ever done that with a run differential worse than plus-66 (1977 Orioles). So how strong is the Power of One? Stronger than even Adrian Beltre!Seattle Mariners2016 plotline: Pick your favorite Seager brotherDown the coast in L.A., Corey Seager is going to be the National League Rookie of the Year. Youll also find him high on a bunch of MVP ballots. But heres our question: Are we sure hes even the Most Valuable Seager? Tough call, because his big brother Kyle has quite a case.Corey has a slightly more attractive slash line (.311/.369/.519/.888) than Kyle (.280/.361/.504/.865). But Kyle has more homers (30-26), more walks (67-54), fewer strikeouts (104-131), more defensive runs saved (15-1) and more wins above replacement (6.9-6.3), according to baseball-reference.com. So its practically a dead heat. Which is pretty cool, dont you think? But you know what nobody has to debate? That their teams wouldnt be anywhere near this good without them.Houston Astros2016 plotline: Short and sweetLife is too short. But apparently, Jose Altuve isnt too short. Weve never seen a 5-foot-6 guy do the kind of things the Astros favorite mini-mite is doing this year. And we havent seen many big dudes do them, either.With three games left in the season, Altuve is heading for his second batting title in three years. But that aint all. Along with that .337 batting average go 212 hits, 42 doubles, 24 homers, five triples, 28 steals, 71 extra-base hits and a .930 OPS. And you know how many players in history have cranked out a stat line like that? The answer, ladies and gentlemen, is none. Nada. A couple of ex-Rockies, Larry Walker and Ellis Burks, came close. But what were witnessing is an unprecedented season for a man of his size -- or any size.Los Angeles Angels2016 plotline: Not enough Trout in this seaMaybe one of these years, Mike Trouts awesomeness will actually coincide with a team around him that can go someplace in October except the nearest putting green. But sadly, once again, it wasnt this year. Five seasons into Trouts career, hes still making history. And the Angels still have never won a postseason series -- or even a postseason game -- with him on the field. What a waste of greatness.Its now a lock that Trout is going to lead the league in wins above replacement for the first time since, well, last year. Which was the first time since the year before that. And the year before that. And the year before that. So if youre adding up those years at home, you know this is going to make five years in a row. And you know how far back you have to go to find any other position player who led his league in WAR five years in a row? Oh, only 85. To a guy named Babe Ruth. Well even craftily ignore the fact that the Babe pulled off that feat about three-quarters of a century before the invention of wins above replacement -- because for all of those years, he was the only other hitter who had ever done it. Except now he has Mike Trout to keep him company. Maybe they can go out for a double cheeseburger.Oakland Athletics2016 plotline: How do you spell Khris?Heres something we shrewdly detected: Who says you cant trade for a slugger these days? We count seven hitters in the big leagues who have hit at least 40 home runs this year -- and three of the seven were traded in the offseason. Theres Mark Trumbo. Theres Todd Frazier. And then theres that guy in Oakland who spells his name funny, Khris Davis.The Brewers traded him to the As in February because (A) they were doing a lot of that sort of thing and (B) there were always questions about whether Davis could close the many holes in his swing. All right, so his 164 strikeouts tell us those holes are still there. But when a guy can mash 41 home runs while playing in the cavernous O.co Coliseum, its amazing how much easier it becomes to live with the swinging and missing. And heres why: Since the As moved to Oakland, just four men had ever hit 40 homers in a season. There was Reggie Jackson. And Mark McGwire. And Jose Canseco. And Jason Giambi. And now theres Khris (with a K) Davis. Kool list! Nike Free Rn Sort . Badenhop was 2-3 with a 3.47 ERA in 63 relief appearances for Milwaukee this season.

CHASKA, Minn. -- My fellow Americans, now is the time we must stand together. Whether youre Trump or Hillary, whether youre conservative or liberal, its time to put aside our differences and focus on the real issue facing our nation.This is Ryder Cup week, a week when even the most disillusioned souls among us can passionately root for a dozen multimillionaires from our country to beat a dozen multimillionaires from another continent in a game that still too often evokes images of high-society haughtiness.If that isnt enough to band together and put the united back in the United States, then allow me to introduce our newest Public Enemy No. 1.His name is Pete Willett, and hes a schoolteacher.That alone doesnt sound too sinister, but ever since Petes brother, Danny, won this years Masters Tournament right here in the good ol U.S. of A., he has been afforded a platform to offer his opinions on a variety of golf- (and non-golf) related matters.Hes usually funny. Hes sarcastic, dry and self-deprecating. He is often even a bit subversive, though not in a malicious way.Until now.In his latest column for National Club Golfer, Willett -- Pete, that is, not the one with the green jacket -- explained how much he loves the Ryder Cup and how much he loves watching his European side beat the Americans every other year. Nothing wrong with that. He should.Then he gets into what he really thinks of American golf fans.He called us a baying mob of imbeciles.He called us a giggling group of reprobates.He called us pudgy, basement-dwelling irritants, stuffed on cookie dough and pissy beer.He called us cretins and immature and dim Yanks.He called us fat, stupid, greedy, classless bastards.Game on, Petey. Those are fightin words.There are places in America where, well, lets just say Pete Willett wouldnt be a very welcome guest right now. Chaska doesnt feel like one of them. Theyre nice people here. Tolerant people, it seems.But man, if the first few days of practice rounds are any indication, they sure do like to make a lot of noise.Guess what, Pete? You just gave them reason to get even louder. You single-handedly ratcheted the level of animosity a few extra notches. After three consecutive Ryder Cup losses, the U.S. hasnt been an underdog like this since 1776 -- oddsmakers lines be damned.We like that role. Just as we like being called out and poked fun at and ridiculed, as juvenile as it might have been. Nike Free Tilbud. Thats because anything we take, we can dish out even better. Dont expect us to sit here and take it quietly.Danny Willett already understands this. A rookie on this years European team, he played a practice round Wednesday at Hazeltine and heard plenty of jeers from that baying mob of imbeciles.Asked by Golf Channel for his thoughts on his brothers column, the Masters champion said: Id just like to apologize, obviously, to everyone involved for whats been said. Its obviously not the thoughts of myself and of the team and of captain Darren [Clarke]. I spoke to [Pete] on the phone after I was made aware of what was said and what has been going on. And I said to Pete that, you know, I was obviously disappointed in what was said and what was written about the American fans that obviously took me under their wing fantastically back in April.Perhaps Danny has been keeping an eye on American politics lately because thats what we like to call some good, old-fashioned spin control.Even Clarke got in on the act, knowing the brother of a team member mightve just turned a raucous home crowd into a frenzied flock of impassioned supporters.It is not what I think. It is not what Team Europe stands for, Clarke said. I was obviously very disappointed in it, as well, because thats an outside person expressing their opinion, which is not representative of what our thoughts are.As a guy who has written more than my fair share of non-humorous humor columns, I understand the desire to take a mulligan sometimes.Hey, foot-in-mouth disease happens to everyone, at some point. Just last week, U.S. captain Davis Love III stoked the rivalry flames by claiming, This is the best golf team, maybe, ever assembled.Europe instantly went 1-up after that comment, with the teams star players using those words as a launching point for punch lines about the U.S. task force and their inability to win this event.With Pete Willetts incendiary column, the match is back to all square. Expect these pudgy, basement-dwelling irritants to be extra loud this week in response to those words.You know, in between bites of cookie dough and sips of pissy beer.

Michigan and football coach Jim Harbaugh agreed to a contract amendment that will increase total payments from the school to $9 million in 2016. Nike Free Rn Distance 2 Uk .In addition to paying a $5 million salary for each of the remaining six years on his deal, Michigan also will loan Harbaugh $4 million in 2016 and an additional $2 million for the following five years to pay the premium on a life insurance policy. The first $2 million loan was made June 3, according to records obtained Wednesday via a Freedom of Information Act request. Each additional $2 million payment will be made in December starting later this year.As long as the insurance policy stays active, Harbaugh does not need to repay the loan until he dies. At that time, the university can recoup its original investment and the rest of the insurance payout would go to whomever Harbaugh chooses as his beneficiaries. Should the policy be stopped at any point, Michigan would still be entitled to get its money back from the insurer.The deal insures that Harbaughs heirs, should he die while Michigan is paying for the policy, will get no less than 150 percent of the premium that has been paid, increasing the payout by $6 million in 2016 and $3 million each successive year.The 150 percent clause protects the university as well. Harbaugh is allowed to borrow against the policy while he is living but has to keep at least 150 percent of the premium value untouched, which gives the school a cushion to make sure it gets its investment back.Harbaughs original seven-year contract with the school allowed for the parties to sit down and discuss additional compensation after the coach finished his first season with the Wolverines.Those discussions started under interim athletic director Jim Hackett in December. Hackett, the former CEO of Steelcase furniture, laid the groundwork for this deal, which a source at Michigan explained is a more commonplace form of deferred compensation in the corporate world.New athletic director Warde Manuel had said in March that the amendment to Harbaughs contract was nearing completion. The two sides officially came to an agreement June 3.If Harbaugh decides to leave the school or is fired, the university will stop providing the loans for insurance premium payments. If the insurance policy is canceled for any reason after that point, Harbaugh will need to pay back the money Michigan loaned him.Harbaughs contract and this amendment are both set to expire in December 2021. There is a clause in the deal that allows the two sides to renegotiate after his fifth season in order to make sure Harbaughs salary still meets market value.ESPN senior writer Darren Rovell contributed to this report.

State 112-94 on Sunday night to advance to the championship game of the Paradise Jam tournament.Cole Huff had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and six other players finished in double figures for Creighton (4-0), which had its highest offensive output in a regulation game since scoring 115 points against Indiana State on Jan. 19, 1985.The polls dont mean anything to me right now, McDermott said. They will in March, but not right now. We just have to continue to get better.Im proud of the fact that coming off an emotional win like we had against (No. 9) Wisconsin, weve been able to put together two pretty good performances back to back.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Neither the Minnesota Twins nor the Oakland Athletics wanted a postponement, despite a severe thunderstorm that delayed the first pitch by 2 hours and 42 minutes and left the ballpark largely empty. Adidas NMD Black Mens .The long wait was well worth it for Tommy Milone and Twins.Kennys Vargas, Max Kepler and Miguel Sano hit home runs, Milone beat his old team and the Twins topped the Athletics 11-4 in a game that ended early Wednesday morning.When you win, it makes it look like a good decision so Im glad we got it in, Twins manager Paul Molitor said.The game started at 9:52 p.m. and ended at 1 a.m.They were right, As manager Bob Melvin said. They got it in.Winning for the first time in eight starts since Sept. 28, Milone finished the sixth inning for only the second time this season. Marcus Semien hit his 18th home run in the second, but that was all the As managed against Milone (1-2). He allowed five hits and one walk to the team that traded him to the Twins two summers ago, crediting catcher Kurt Suzuki for calling a smart game behind the plate.We were on the same page pretty much the whole night, Milone said.Milone averaged 4 1/2 innings over his first six starts this year. With top prospect Jose Berrios on a tear for Triple-A Rochester, the left-hander was likely pitching to keep his spot in the rotation. Molitor essentially acknowledged as much before and after the game.I try not to think about that. I try to just go out there and do what I do on the field, Milone said.Danny Valencia hit a three-run homer in the eighth to bring the As within 7-4, but Sano hit his three-run shot in the bottom of the inning to seal it and help the Twins (28-55) move ahead of Atlanta (28-56) in the race for the worst record in the major leagues.Vargas, recalled Monday from Triple-A Rochester, went deep for the first time since June 22, 2015, with a two-run, two-out home run in the fifth against Sean Manaea (3-5). Then Kepler homered on the next pitch.After a meager four-hit performance Monday, the Twins brought their bats to life. Suzuki, another former As player, had two RBI. Byron Buxton had two doubles, driving in one.The dark clouds rolled in early enough to cancel batting practice, but with both teams scheduled to travel Wednesday evening (Minnesota to Texas and Oakland to Houston) the preference was to avoid a doubleheader the next day. So they waited out the heavy rain, swirling wind and thunder and lightning, and the tarp was pulled off the infield at 9:17 p.m. In the clubhouse, some of the Twins gathered around shortstop Eduardo Nunezs cubicle to talk about his All-Star Game selection.Milone hadnt begun his pregame routine when the rain began, so he said he wasnt bothered much by the delay. Manaea might have been.I know he was pretty antsy, Melvin said. He kept coming in here asking me if Id heard anything. For starting pitchers, theyre the ones that are affected the most. Theyre very routine-oriented.WEATHER TRACKINGPaid attendance was announced at 16,938, the smallest crowd in Target Fields seven seasons. The actual number of people in the seats at first pitch couldnt have been much more than 1,000. The Twins granted fans ticket exchanges for a future game because of the delay, which was the 31st since the ballpark opened in 2010. There have been 14 postponed games and one suspended.TRAINERS ROOMATHLETICS: Oakland reserve catcher Josh Phegley, placed Sunday on the DL, had minor surgery in San Francisco to remove a cruciate ligament cyst on the inside of his right knee that was causing swelling and inflammation. Hell be reassessed in 10 days. Matt McBride has taken over as the backup.TWINS: Buxton was back in the Minnesota lineup after two days off to rest bumps and bruises. He crashed hard into the wall in left-center making a catch in the game Friday. In the seventh inning, Buxton made a sprinting grab of Jake Smolinskis smashed line drive and collided with the fence around the same spot.UP NEXTOakland RHP Sonny Gray (3-7, 5.42 ERA) will pitch Wednesday against Minnesota RHP Ervin Santana (2-7, 4.50 ERA) in the series finale.Gray is 0-2 with a 4.42 ERA in six starts since coming off the DL due to a trapezius muscle strain between his shoulder and neck. Santana gave up only three hits in his last start, going 6 2/3 innings in a defeat by Texas. That was his lowest hits total since opening day, when a rain delay limited him to two innings. Adidas NMD R1 Online .C. -- Rodney Hood connected from all over the court while freshman Jabari Parker was busy swatting shots and scoring in transition. Adidas NMD R1 Sale . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. http://www.wirhand.com/adidas-nmd-human-race-for-sale.html .ca!

PHILADELPHIA -- If Joel Embiid and Hassan Whiteside have their way, centers are going to be big in the NBA again. Dames Nike Air Huarache OG Sneakers Wit/Oranje/Roze Pow .Embiid had 22 points, including four late free throws, to lead the Philadelphia 76ers over Whiteside and the Miami Heat 101-94 on Monday night in a matchup between two of the top big men in the Eastern Conference.Neither disappointed.Whiteside set a career high with 32 points while reaching double digits in rebounds for the 13th consecutive game to start the season. Whiteside, who entered leading the NBA with 16.2 boards per game, finished with 13.Around the league theres a lot of young big men, and I think were starting to come back, said Embiid, who played 23 minutes. So one thing I told him is keep killing it. As big men, we all want each other to do good. Ive always studied him in the past. Its always been a big man league, so I want it to stay like that.Gerald Henderson added 19 points and Jahlil Okafor had 15 for the 76ers, who won their fourth straight home game. Philadelphia (4-10) has lost 21 in a row on the road.I feel were moving in the right direction, coach Brett Brown said.Embiid has made an early case for Rookie of the Year despite missing two seasons with a foot injury. He set a career high with 26 points in Philadelphias 120-105 win over Phoenix on Saturday night and followed that up with yet another strong game.He was serenaded with chants of MVP! MVP! late in the game from the home crowd, which hasnt had much to cheer about in the last few seasons during Philadelphias rebuilding process. But Embiid has given Sixers fans reason to hope.Philly loves that guy, Whiteside said. Ive never seen excitement like that. They love that dude. I was amazed.Embiid came up big again Monday, especially down the stretch.The teams were close throughout the second half. Hendersons corner 3-pointer gave Philadelphia an 85-80 cushion with 8:16 remaining. Whiteside re-entered shortly after that shot and helped Miami tie it at 89 with 4:43 left on a tip-in.Philadelphia responded with nine of the next 11 points, capped by Embiids two free throws with 2:27 left that gave the 76ers their biggest lead to that point, 98-91.Theres a spirit he has at the end of games and on the bench that reflects toughness and a growing desire, Brown said of Embiid.PITCHING INRobert Covington also came up big during the late Sixers run, scoring on a reverse layup and a 3-pointer.Covington was booed upon entering the game in the fourth quarter due to his recent shooting struggles. He entered having missed 27 of his last 31 shots and finished 4 for 13 against Miami.It goes in one ear, out the other, Covington said. Ive been here two years. I see the ups and downs of how Philly fans are, and it doesnt affect me. Just keep playing.The 3-pointer eased Covingtons mind.It was a big relief, he said. My teammates just kept telling me to keep shooting. I was like, Im going to have one good shot.KEEP ME IN, COACHWhiteside, plagued by foul trouble, played 32 minutes. He ended the night with five fouls, but would have liked to have seen more time on the court.One day he is going to trust me with the five fouls, Whiteside said of coach Erik Spoelstra.BIG SHOTEmbiid is the rare big man who has a feathery touch from outside. He shot 7 of 13 from the field and hit one of his two 3-point attempts. For the season, Embiid is shooting 49.2 percent from the floor and has drained 11 of 21 3-pointers.TIP-INSHeat: Shaquille ONeals No. 32 jersey will be retired by Miami on Dec. 22 during a ceremony at halftime against the Los Angeles Lakers. ...

Wall made the comment in a speech to a Regina business crowd that included Lesnar. The U.S. wrestler and retired mixed martial artist says he was visiting his brothers farm in Saskatchewan and decided he wanted to hear what the premier had to say. Super Smash Bros. has a lot of variability. As an arena fighter, movement options are nearly infinite, and the slightest degrees in angle can influence direction. Smash Bros. players have been relegated to using a GameCube controller for the past 15 years, and unlike most game controllers, the gate around the thumb stick is octagonal, not circular. This allows players to accurately hit up, down, left and right, but also top-right, bottom-left, etc. Not only that, there are other angles that players can hit, such as the space between top and top-right. It gives Smash Bros a free-form and improvisational feel, as if almost any movement were possible.But there is a downside to this near-limitless movement option. The game is largely controlled by just your two thumbs, and as the game has continued to grow in speed and complexity, it has evolved to require absurd levels of precision. This is especially true for the second game in the series, Super Smash Bros. Melee. As competitive matches can have players hitting six inputs per second, accidental slipping of the thumb stick can mean a win or loss.To get a better understanding, imagine trying to draw a six-sided star, one-second at a time, perfectly in succession for 10 seconds. Your hand will have to deal with the friction of the paper, the dulling of the pencil, the tiring of your wrist. Unless your hand is absolutely steady and perfect, not every star will look the same. And thats the kind of dilemma competitive Smash Bros. players find themselves in.Not only that, but finding good-quality controllers is starting to become a problem. Most players agree that the best controllers were made in the early 2000s. As Smash Bros. has grown, these controllers have become far more scarce and sought-after.Thats not to say that the GameCube controller is the only option for Smash players, but it is the preferred one by far. The latest iteration, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, allows use of the Wii remote and nunchuck as well as the Wii U pro controller, which is closer to the controller found on the Xbox. But because of the GameCube controllers analogue buttons and octagonal gate, it has stayed.Thats where the Smash Box comes in. It breaks down Smash Bros. to only button presses, making movements as binary as possible and removing a controllers inconsistencies. To understand the philosophy behind the Smash Box, ESPN.com reached out to Hit Boxs Dustin Huffer to get some insight.Our goal is to evolve competitive gaming hardware for Smash and any other hard-core esport, one genre at a time, said Huffer. Its exactly like having hockey gear for hockey players and baseball gear for baseball players. Each game has its own challenges and needs that separate itself from other games.The current Smash Bros. metagame has evolved far past what the controllers were originally intended for. Some players will claw their controllers to allow the index finger to work in tandem with the thumb to move more precisely. Others will rest the joint of the thumb between two buttons to quickly pivot between presses. The lack of controller diversity has served as both a physical learning barrier preventing newcomers from joining in as well as putting a cap on many players competitive lifespan with carpal tunnel and other RSIs [repetitive stress injuries], said Huffer.Clearly, the most radical omission from the Smash Box is any sort of stick. Movement has been scaled back to just four buttons, kind of like the arrow keys on a keyboard. We ditched stick for accuracy, speed, and ergonomics said Huffer. Smash execution is all about surgical analog precision at ridiculous rates of speed. Watching a Melee players hands will baffle you at the gymnastics they perform.There are some added benefits as well. Dividing whats normally done with just one thumb across the entire hand gives unparalleled control over the game at high rates of APM [actions per minute], all while reducing hand strain, said Huffer.Dr. Caitlin McGee, a physical therapist, corroborated these claims: One of the biggest sources of repetitive stress injuries in Smash is the thumb motion required both for motion and for action inputs. This is significantly decreased with a more keyboard-style input system.Flattening out a GameCube controller to allow all fingers access to buttons would definitely decrease stress. Another common isssue with traditional controllers is compression on the pinky side of the wrist when holding the controller while the wrists are in ulnar deviation, she said. Nike Air Huarache Kopen. Rotating the forearm into pronation decreases this risk as well.But having a flat, keyboard style input system isnt without its downside. McGee said there are ergonomic issues related to the carpal tunnel/Guyons canal, wrist extensors and general postural concerns, but overall it should be less stressful than a GameCube controller.Even if the Smash Box turns out to be a competitive Smash controller, there are still legal concerns. Bassem Bear Dahdouh, a tournament organizer for Panda Global, explained: For a local tournament, I think it would be fine. I think its interesting to see how people will like it before considering it legal for events. But for a larger-scale tournament, third-party controllers for Smash Bros. tournaments need a bit of a testing phase to ensure there wont be any complications that could potentially delay a tournament.Theres also the matter of Nintendo, the makers of Super Smash Bros. The company has been notoriously protective of its intellectual property and has been known to shut down fan projects in the past. Chris Gallizzi, Hyperkins head of design and product development, has a bit of experience making third-party peripherals for Nintendo hardware. Because the Smash Box will be wired, it will not require wireless protocol access from Nintendo, which is a major burden lifted. Gallizzi also explained that there are enough third-party solutions out there to the point where no licensing is necessary with Nintendo.The Smash Box has been in development for the past two years, and in that time, top players have been able to get their hands on it.The Smash Box is surprisingly intuitive in a lot of ways. The button layout itself isnt too difficult to get used to, said Twitchs Kristopher Toph Aldenderfer, a top player and commentator. The trickiest thing has been acclimating to using the different tilt buttons in conjunction with each other to get, for example, perfect wave dashes or precise Firefox angles.What Toph refers to are advanced techniques, requiring multiple successive button presses that manipulate the games physics to allow for faster movements. It isnt second nature at all, but learning techniques in a modular manner, i.e., thinking of the perfect wave dash as a single unit, rather than thinking about each individual button press, helps a lot, Toph said.Its definitely unique, said Team Liquids Juan Hungrybox DeBiedma, a professional Super Smash Bros. Melee player and recent Evolution 2016 champion. Hungrybox said the learning curve is very steep but it theoretically could make someone the most technical player of all time. But Hungrybox said it may be better-suited for Street Fighter V, while Toph offered that itd take a few months of serious play for a pro to feel confident using it at a tournament.With a game as old as Melee, top players still jest that theres still a lot more to discover. In both Smash Wii U and Melee, we may start seeing matches more akin to tool-assisted super-play (TAS). TAS are demonstration videos in which the creator, using a game emulator on a computer, goes frame-by-frame to record a perfect match. Hit Box may have made it viable to create TAS videos for Smash, changing the metagame in the process. Characters that were thought to not have been viable in the meta might now be, if played at TAS levels of precision.As of now, its uncertain whether the Smash Box will even make a ripple in the Smash community, let alone change the metagame. And of course, it takes skill, and not just a new controller, to start making upsets.I think its too much of a risk, said Hungrybox.Toph said that top players wouldnt immediately make the switch. Itll probably take a newcomer making waves with the Smash Box before pros look at seriously switching, he said.The Smash Box brings a lot of potential, but with it a lot of uncertainties. Once the Kickstarter launches, it will be interesting to see if the community backs it. Regardless of its ambitions or concerns, one thing is certain: The community will continue to push Super Smash Bros. beyond anyones imagination.

Bhavin Thakkar and Rohan Prem scored centuries as Kerala ended the first day on 290 for 2 against Goa at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Custom Argentina Jersey .Goas decision to bowl first might have felt justified when opener Vishnu Vinod was removed in the seventh over with the score on 12. But their bowlers had no success for the next 70 overs, as Thakkar and Prem put on 234 for the second wicket. Thakkar scored 117 off 200 balls, with 14 boundaries, before he was bowled by Shadab Jakati.Prem then took his team to stumps unbeaten on 120 - his fourth consecutive score above 60 - with Sanju Samson at the other end on 28.Nineties from Nitin Saini and Rajat Paliwal helped Haryana reach 295 for 5 at stumps against Jammu & Kashmir in Cuttack.J&K captain Parvez Rasool elected to field and took two early wickets in a first session where three fell. But opener Nitin Saini followed up an unbeaten 152 in his last innings with a 90 in this match, while putting on 94 for the fourth wicket with Paliwal. After his dismissal, Paliwal joined hands with Rohit Sharma (51), and the pair put on 109 for the fifth wicket, before Rasool removed Sharma off the last ball of the day. Paliwal was unbeaten on 99.Half-centuries from B Sandeep (83*) and Mehdi Hasan (61) helped Hyderabad overcome a middle-order collapse to end the day on 303 for 7 against Services at the Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai.A 105-run second-wicket stand between Akshath Reddy (64) and B Anirudh (49) had taken Hyderabad to 136 for 1 before a spell from medium-pacer Raushan Raj saw them lose 5 wickets between the 47th and 51st overs, to be reduced to 141 for 6. Raushan took four of those wickets, while Services captain Anshul Gupta accounted for his counterpart S Badrinath with a run-out.But the effects of this collapse were negated when Sandeep and Hasan put on 135 for a seventh-wicket stand that took them into the final session without further damage, till Hasan was run out in the 80th over.Andhras opening bowlers took seven wickets between them as Tripura were bowled out for 171 on the first day in Valsad.DP Vijaykumar (4-56) and CV Stephen (3-47) struck regularly after Andhra had elected to field, taking seven of the first eight wickets, to leave Tripura struggling at 107 for 8.Nine Tripura batsmen got into double figures, but the top scorer was Bunti Roy, who came in at No. 10 and put 34 for the ninth wicket with Gurinder Singh (13) and 30 for the last wicket with Rajib Dutta (16*), before he was the last one dismissed for 34.Andhra lost KS Bharat early in their response, but DB Prasanth (19*) and Hanuma Vihari (18*) took them to stumps on 47 for 1.Chhattisgarh lost quick wickets on either side of two half-century stands, to finish the day on 212 for 7 against Himachal Pradesh in Kanpur.Left-arm spinner Bipul Sharma, who took over the captaincy from Rishi Dhawan, was responsible for the second of those collapses. He took the last three wickets to fall on the day, including that of top-scorer Amandeep Khare (85) who had put on 51 for the fourth wicket with Ashutosh Singh (16) and 76 for the fifth with Avnish Dhaliwal (39) to lift Chhattisgarh out of trouble at 39 for 3. Bipul removed Dhaliwal shortly after, and bowled wicketkeeper Manoj Singh (21) in the 88th over to finish with 3 for 37.

Giles Scott has all but secured Olympic gold with a race to spare, continuing Great Britains domination of the Finn class.Few debutants arrived at Rio 2016 shouldering as much expectation as the 29-year-old, who was overwhelming favourite with bookmakers having failed to win just two regattas in this Olympic cycle, getting silver in those two events.Sir Ben Ainslies heir to the throne has made light work of that pressure and is now on the brink of continuing Great Britains 16-year golden Finn record in the Olympics, started by Iain Percy at Sydney 2000.The result is subject to protest, and Scott will still have to sail in Tuesdays medal race, but an eighth and second on Sunday has made him uncatchable in the double-point finale.I know what it meant to me because of the way it made me feel towards the latter stages of that final race, Scott said having returned to dry land, where mens RS:X silver medallist Nick Dempsey was among those waiting.I just found myself welling up, getting tingles as it slowly dawned on me what I had done.I wouldnt put myself down as the emotional sort but I had a little cry to myself, which Id like to think I dont do that often. Lucas Biglia Jersey. .Just the emotions that end up coming out of you in that situation, you cant really prepare yourself for it. It was amazing.Scott knows his dominance of the class in recent years has seen him race with a target on his back, but there was no stopping the indomitable Briton in Rio.I think if youd have asked me would I have won the Olympic Games before the medal race in Rio, Id have said absolutely not just because of the venue it is, Scott said as the sun set over the Marina da Gloria.But the racing weve had this week, Ive managed to sail more consistently than everybody else at the top of the fleet.It has just landed me in this brilliant situation where Ive got the points gap I need before the medal race and its such a privileged situation to be in.The next two days for everyone else fighting out for those medals is going to be incredibly, incredibly stressful.To be able to say that I am not going to have to go through that is pretty nice.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers slugger Prince Fielder is expected to have season-ending neck surgery for the second time in three years, and his career could be jeopardy as well. Adidas Zx 750 Noir .Fielder got a second opinion Monday, and general manager Jon Daniels said Dr. Drew Dossett recommended surgery. That was the same as Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles said last week after an MRI showed a herniation between Fielders C4 and C5 disks.While Daniels didnt want to speculate on the long-term future for the 32-year-old Fielder, the GM did acknowledge the seriousness of having a second surgery in close proximity to the first.He rehabbed once from it and came back. I think with each additional surgery in that area it increases the risk involved and just the overall, his ability to get back, Daniels said. But its not for me to speculate about that here today.Dossett, a specialist in Texas who works with the Rangers, performed Fielders surgery in May 2014 when he had a cervical fusion of two disks just below the area that is bothering the slugger now.Fielder has hit a career-low .212 with eight homers and 44 RBI in 89 games this season. He had recently been feeling weakness and discomfort in his neck and left arm, similar to what he felt two years ago before surgery.I just know that post-All-Star break last year and through the playoffs, and then just kind of inconsistency of this season, there were times hed show you a spark or two, and then it would just kind of evaporate, manager Jeff Banister said. There were times when the ball still came off his bat at 100 miles an hour. But I dont know this season that this was who wed seen in the past.Daniels said it seems like Fielder was feeling discomfort for some time before the MRI last week after acknowledging that there was an issue.I think he just wanted to play, and wanted to push through it, Daniels said.Fielder wasnt in the clubhouse before Monday nights home game against Oakland.The Rangers got Fielder in a November 2013 trade from Detroit, when they sent second baseman Ian Kinsler to the Tigers. Fielder, who is in his 12th major league season, is signed through 2020.Fielder was limited to 42 games during his Rangers debut in 2014, when he hit .247 with three homers and 16 RBI. Fielder rebounded with a .305 average, 23 homers and 98 RBI in 158 games last year, but fell off a bit the second half of the season.Fielder has been primarily the designated hitter for the Rangers. He had played in 547 consecutive games and hadnt missed consecutive games since August 2007 before his surgery two years ago.Obviously, Prince is a big part of this team. We know what he can do, third baseman Adrian Beltre said. He was a great asset for us last year. Were going to miss him, but hopefully hell get right.The Rangers were tied for the American League lead with 57 wins going into Monday nights game. But their AL West lead had shrunk to 2 1/2 games over Houston, from the 10-game division lead they had before playing 19 of their previous 23 games on the road. Ultra Boost 3.0 Triple Black .

Ipswich Witches race on a Thursday evening, and owner Chris Louis talks us through the planning for a race day at Foxhall Stadium. Javier Pastore Jersey . Generally, the fixture list is done in the winter, Louis said. As long as you dont get rain offs and dont have to shift things around, thats when it gets a little more difficult with riders individual calendars. But the fixture list is there and you know what is coming up.During the week you have to name your team to the opposing club first and they tell you what their team is. As the staging promotion, you put both teams up on the SCB website so the referee can log in and check both teams are legal. If there are any changes he makes sure there is a legal reason and checks the replacement rider fits the criteria. I check with Bob Ellis, the trackman, to see if he has any problems and then if Im busy with engine preparation I go to the workshop and spend a few hours there. I always report back to the track before midday Chris Louis Then in the run-up to the meeting, that gets updated as-and-when people drop out with injury or illness. So thats pretty well organised and straightforward, its just more of a problem if you get rained off and you have to rearrange. You get involved with individual riders calendars and that is more of a problem.Louis has been in speedway for over 25 years and although he has made the switch from rider to owner, raceday still remains the focus of his week, and the 46-year-old talked us through his routine on a Thursday, a day that sees him take on various roles throughout the day.I get up and go to the track, check my emails and check there are no team issues, either with us or the visiting team, he added. If there is, at any point during the day, I let the referee know that someone will be missing. I check with Bob Ellis, the trackman, to see if he has any problems and then if Im busy with engine preparation I go to the workshop and spend a few hours there. I always report back to the track before midday to check with Bob and his wife Chris and normally go to lunch. During that time Bob is constantly watering and making sure the track is how he wants it. Louis helps prepare the track on race day After lunch I come back to the track and stay there for the rest of the day. I help with the watering if its needed on a hot day but my track duties dont start until 4pm when we start to move the track around and make sure the top surface is how we want it, so I stay involved with that until 6pm. Then I go into a telephone box, spin around and turn into a promoter! I greet visiting teams and managers and then basically watch the meeting.Since I stopped doing the team manager job Im very strict on myself at not interfering with what the team manager does but of course if they want any advice Im always in the pits or on the centre green to help riders or the team manager. Then I always go to spend a bit of time with the team sponsors, who have two areas of hospitality.Its a long day on a Thursday, obviously the track is the main laborious part. The fence has to come up and go down every week after the speedway. That goes up on a Monday and then the track preparation is literally done from the Friday after a meeting to the following Thursday for the next one. The air fence must come down after every meeting at Foxhall. The busy life of a speedway owner does not stop there. Louis is part of Sky Sports panel at live broadcasts and also keeps himself involved in the mechanical side of the sport.I do a few engines, I have that side of the business to take care of, he said. I do Mondays for Sky Sports, so theres a little bit of homework for that to see what the teams are, what changes there are and then I go to do that. Then maybe there is a BSPA meeting on a Tuesday, they dont happen very often but they do happen on occasion. Then there is away meetings, I go to all of the away meetings, so there is more than enough to do during the week. Louis is part of Sky Sports Speedways broadcast team As the season ends in October and riders pack up for the winter, the owner begins to plan for the next gruelling campaign.In the off-season week-by-week its not busier than the speedway season but its different. From the seasons end until December, its about making sure we get a competitive team together and making sure weve got the sponsorship advertising, meeting sponsors all of those things to pay for it.
