Yesterday it was announced that the Titans

signed Adam Humphries to a 4 year $36 million dollar contract. Of course you know that the total number on a contract doesnt really matter. The only..."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Tennessee Titans PodcastAdam Humphries contract breakdown with the TitansNew Kamalei Correa Jersey ,21commentsCDTShareTweetShareShareAdam Humphries contract breakdown with the TitansJeremy Brevard-USA TODAY SportsYesterday it was announced that the Titans signed Adam Humphries to a 4 year $36 million dollar contract. Of course you know that the total number on a contract doesnt really matter. The only thing that really matter is guaranteed money and how that is structured. Adam Caplan has that breakdown for us:So if my understanding of NFL contracts is correct, that signing bonus money is spread out against the life of the contract for salary cap purposes. That means that if the Titans were to cut him in the last year of the deal, lets say, they would have $2.5 million in dead money (assuming that the rest of the guaranteed money is in the first couple of years).Look Jayon Brown Jersey White , the Titans failed to add a guy that could help them this time last year. Did they pay more than you would have liked for a guy that hasnt been a touchdown producer? Sure, but having more weapons is always better than having less weapons. In the first 2 installments of my Titans offseason plan, I looked at guys that should be re-signed and guys that should be cut. Today we move on to guys that should be signed in free agency. My plan for the first wave of free agency is simple: Sign at least 2 receivers. I would sign one guy that is a slot type guy and one guy that could take the top off the defense.I think it is important for the Titans to add a veteran receiver or two in free agency because of how young that room is currently. You have Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor heading into their 3rd seasons and Tajae Sharpe heading into his 4th (after missing all of the 2017 season). This is the perfect place to add a couple of guys who have some experience.The first guy I would target is Tyrell Williams. He would give the Titans the deep threat that they have desperately needed for years, and years http://www.thetitanslockerroom.com/authent...an-jones-jersey , and years and...you get the point. Williams will only be 27 when the 2019 season kicks off. For his career he averages over 16 yards per catch. The Titans dont have a guy on the roster that can do the things he can do.The second guy I would target would be Golden Tate. He would give the Titans that slot type guy that can work the middle of the field and give the Titans a threat underneath. He was underutilized in his time with the Eagles after they traded a 3rd round pick for him. I doubt he will re-sign there. I would be perfectly fine with Jon Robinson over paying to bring a guy with his experience to the team. If those guys get re-signed by their respective teams, or the Titans miss out on them for whatever reason, you have the back-up plans of John Brown and Adam Humphries. Honestly, getting any combination of 2 of these 4 guys really http://www.thetitanslockerroom.com/authent...-jackson-jersey , really needs to happen. The Titans need to give Marcus Mariota all of the tools possible to succeed in 2019. That starts with getting him more weapons on the outside.After the receiver position, I would turn my attention in the second and third waves of free agency to look for at least one guy that could come in and help fix the interior offensive line. You can see a list of interior offensive lineman that are set to become free agents here. Sign the best guy that is left. From there you fill out the other places on the roster you need some help. It wouldnt hurt to sign a couple of defensive lineman to come in and battle for a roster spot during training camp. After all of this, Robinson is free to solidify the pass rush in the first couple of rounds in the draft.

Jameis Winston's first order of business

:  laiyongcai92 @ 16.5.2019, 11:29
in training camp was apologizing to teammates.Now Matt Gay Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey , he's appealing for continued support from unhappy fans who think he no longer deserves to be the quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers."I understand the disappointment. I'm disappointed," the fourth-year pro said Thursday, speaking publicly for the first time since the NFL suspended him three games for violating the league's personal conduct policy by groping a female Uber driver the winter after his rookie season."I should never have put myself in that situation," Winston added. "All I can do is grow and learn from that."That was the underlying theme of a 10-minute media session following the Bucs' first practice. He declined to discuss specifics about the March 2016 incident in Scottsdale, Arizona, repeatedly saying he's focused on being a good teammate and moving forward."That happened after my rookie year," Winston said. "I've made a lot of positive changes since then."The 24-year-old, who's thrown for 11,636 yards and 69 touchdowns in three pro seasons, will miss what figures to be three of Tampa Bay's toughest games 鈥?at New Orleans on Sept. 9, followed by home dates against defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.Veteran backup Ryan Fitzpatrick will take over in Winston's absence, with Ryan Griffin 鈥?a fifth-year pro who's yet to take a snap in a regular-season game 鈥?moving into the No. 2 role."It's disappointing that Jameis put himself in that position and put our team in that position," coach Dirk Koetter said. "But at this point, it's done and we have to deal with it."Fitzpatrick, 2-1 in three starts last season as a replacement for an injured Winston, practiced with the regulars Thursday.Griffin worked with the second-stringers, while Winston took snaps with the first, second and third teams.Koetter did not provide details about the incident that landed his starting quarterback in trouble. He also declined to talk about what Winston said to teammates on reporting day."I think everybody can appreciate that what's said in there should be between Jameis and the team," the coach said.And while it won't be ideal opening the season without the No. 1 quarterback, Koetter expressed confidence that others will step up against the Saints, Eagles and Steelers, who are all defending division champions.The Bucs, who haven't made the playoffs since 2007, are coming off a 5-11 finish."I think your team has a lot of leaders. Being a leader starts with being a leader of yourself. I talk to the guys about that often," Koetter said."I think that's one of Jameis' strengths as a football player ... But right now, where we're standing with the three-game suspension, it's time Jameis leads from the rear," the coach added. "And there's nothing wrong with that."Winston, meanwhile, hopes fans will continue to support the Bucs as an organization, as well as him, personally.Tampa Bay drafted him No. 1 overall despite questions about the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner's off-the-field behavior in college.A fellow student at Florida State said Winston raped her, but the quarterback was never charged. The university settled a Title IX lawsuit over its handling of the allegations with Winston's accuser in January 2016 for $1.7 million.Since joining the Bucs, Winston has started 45 of 48 games. He's also made an impact off the field through numerous charitable endeavors.He reiterated he plans to remain active in the Tampa Bay community 2019 Matt Gay Jersey , adding he "can't let this diminish all the hard work that I've been doing.""I've made a lot of positive strides since I've been here. I have to continue to grow as a man, as a person, as a leader, as a father. I know I can't put myself in situations like that," Winston said.The quarterback offered one more reason it's imperative he correct his behavior around women 鈥?Winston's month-old son, born one day after the NFL announced the suspension."So seeing things from a different perspective, and learning that I'm going to have to teach that man how to live his day-to-day life," Winston said, "I really took it upon myself to be proactive and make sure I'm being a great example for him and my fiancee." On Thursday, the official Twitter account of Sunday Night Football on NBC posed a question: of the NFL teams with one Super Bowl win, which is the best franchise? You could probably make a valid argument for a number of those teams being the answer to the question. But thats not really what I took away from that graphic. What really hit me as I looked at those teams is just how much worse the Bucs have been than the rest of them in recent history. It got me thinking about Tampa Bays status in the NFL, which definitely isnt a good one right now.The Eagles won the Super Bowl last year. The Rams are playing for the Lombardi Trophy this year. The Chiefs and Saints just barely missed out on playing for their second Super Bowl victories this past Sunday. The Seahawks made the playoffs this year and have been a solid team for the last several years, even playing for a second trophy the year after winning their first. The Bears got to the postseason this year as well, and appear set to contend for the foreseeable future behind a young quarterback and a defense with a ridiculous amount of talent.Even the Jets (yes, THE NEW YORK JETS) have played for an AFC Championship this decade. Sure, its fair to say that New York has had a rough time since that loss in the 2010 playoffs. But even still, that franchise has had success more recently than the Bucs. Tampa Bay hasnt been to the playoffs in this decade. It hasnt won a postseason game since winning the Super Bowl on Jan. 26, 2003. Thats just sad, folks.The good news is, the Bucs might be one good year away from losing their laughing stock status. Talent hasnt really been the main issue for Tampa Bay, which is why hopes are high for the team under new head coach Bruce Arians, who has a proven track record. Plus, at least the Bucs have a Lombardi Trophy. Everyone go ahead and wave at the Bengals, Bills, Browns, Cardinals, Chargers, Falcons, Jaguars, Lions, Panthers, Texans, Titans and Vikings. I guess things could be worse...

49ers fans and haters had a lot to say.

:  laiyongcai92 @ 16.5.2019, 11:00
"No one was surprised that the 49ers took Nick Bosa when he was available. But draft twitter still had a lot of opinions. Mostly good.Hall of Fame personnel man Gil Brandt approves Womens Aaron Burbridge Jersey , with an interesting note about the domino effect that Bosa will have for this defense. If fans were somewhat quiet about the expected pick, Bosas new teammates were all over it.The only controversy was reaction to Bosas controversial right-wing (and arguably racist) tweets.Lynch seemed to hem and haw a bit in his response:SoCaliSteph had a more optimistic take.Frankly, the Bosa pick was so expected that the Twitter takes were a bit underwhelming. On the other hand, everybody had a lot of fun roasting the Giants for the Daniel Jones pick.Enjoy!First, an Eagles writer whos really enjoying that choice.And another!Speaking of faint praise Womens Trent Taylor Jersey , I dont think this isnt a positive, either.To be more specific....Before the draft, they had a bizarre promotion where some fan won Super Bowl tickets for 100 years. And a Giants fan won.Last word goes to Fooch: Seattle getting worse on the day of the Draft? Never happens."Oh, draft week. We are going to hear so much noise over the next few days. What actually ends up sticking will be interesting. One thing that has been too loud to ignore is the potential of the Seattle Seahawks trading defensive end Frank Clark. Over the weekend, it was reported that Seattle is holding out for a first round pick to deal Clark.The New York Jets are reportedly interested in dealing for Clark Jimmie Ward Jersey , but they dont want to part ways with the No. 3 pick. The Jets dont have a second round pick, so thats going to be tough. A lot of people around the league believe that a deal will be worked out with the Kansas City Chiefs. The other team that is reportedly interested in Clark is the Indianapolis Colts. We know about Clark and his issues off of the field. Trading a first round pickeven for an established player like Clarkonly to hand them a contract that is going to sniff $100 million seems backwards. This would be great for the San Francisco 49ers, obviously. Clark is one of the three best players on that defense, if not team. You arent going to replace what he brings on the field. With the Seahawks getting rid of Clark, the 49ers have a good chance to become the second best team in the division Womens Richard Sherman Jersey , and potentially slide into a wildcard spot.

For the second time this season

:  laiyongcai92 @ 16.5.2019, 10:26
the Seahawks are having to find an option at weakside linebacker with K.J. Wright is sidelined due to injury.Wright has missed seven of Seattle's 10 games played this season due to a knee injury that surfaced during pregame warmups of the team's preseason game in Minnesota in August. Wright had surgery shortly after and missed the first six weeks of the season as setbacks in his recovery slowed his return to the field.The knee issue again sidelined Wright during the team's loss to the Los Angeles Rams and kept him out of the Thursday night victory over the Green Bay Packers."He's still working to get back Barkevious Mingo Jersey ," head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday.Barkevious Mingo started in place of Wright against the Packers before being replaced after just one defensive series by Austin Calitro. Calitro also replaced rookie Shaquem Griffin in the team's opener against Denver.Mychal Kendricks was then signed and started the next three games for Seattle before the league imposed an eight-game suspension for a guilty plea in an insider-trading case. While Kendricks returned to practice Tuesday, he's ineligible to play for another two weeks while serving the final stretch of his suspension.Meanwhile, it's uncertain whether just rest and rehab will be enough to get Wright back on the field in the coming weeks."We're going to find out. We don't know," Carroll said.The Seahawks are going with Calitro this week for their matchup against the Carolina Panthers. The undrafted rookie has started three of 10 games played for Seattle this year in relief of Wright, with 22 tackles, a pass defended and a half sack of Aaron Rodgers last Thursday against the Packers."We're gaining experience as we go," Carroll said. "Austin has done a nice job when he's had his chances. He's still a young player so there's stuff to learn and all but he's done a nice job, particularly in the physical side of hitting and tackling and all."Calitro will likely keep the gig until either Wright or Kendricks are able to return."We just have to understand it's kind of a next man up," middle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. "Everybody kind of knows I trust everybody that's been in the position. Austin is in it right now. We have a lot of confidence in him."Kendricks is eligible to play against the Minnesota Vikings on Dec. 10."It's great for Mychal in particular;" Carroll said of having Kendricks back at practice. "He needs to get going and doing some stuff that's positive and all of that. He had a really good experience with us before. We loved him playing for us."Notes: RB J.D. McKissic was designated to return from injured reserve and returned to practice Tuesday. McKissic injured his foot in the preseason and was placed on injured reserve following roster cuts in early September.

DALLAS (AP) Michael Hutchinson

:  laiyongcai92 @ 15.5.2019, 6:39
wasnt concerned when Dallas Tyler Pitlick scored in the first 10 seconds of the Winnipeg goalies first game in 25 days.The first goals not that important Joel Eriksson Ek Jersey , Hutchinson said. We have 59 minutes and 50 seconds to come back and get another one. We were able to battle back.The Jets didnt need that much time on Saturday night. They scored five goals in the second period and went on to beat the Stars 5-3.Patrik Laine scored two goals and Dustin Byfuglien had three assists in the period.I thought Dustin Byfuglien was the best player on the ice tonight, Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said. He knocked some pucks down, broke up so many plays and then the offensive part of his game is the best hockey Ive ever seen him play.Winnipeg moved into a tie with Nashville atop the Central Division. The Jets have outscored opponents 29-12 in winning five of their last six.Hutchinson, who has won both of his NHL starts this season, finished with 33 saves.He made some really good saves, Maurice said. He gave us a chance to win the game tonight with his play. Thats what you ask from those guys.Byfuglien assisted on the first three goals, by Nikolaj Ehlers, Toby Enstrom and Mark Scheifele. On the fourth, assists went to Ehlers and the goalkeeper. It was the first assist of Hutchinsons 101-game career.Ehlers started Winnipegs scoring and finished it with assists on Laines goals. In eight career games against Dallas, Laine has 16 points (12 goals, 4 assists).His shot is pretty unique, Ehlers said. He can put it in pretty much from anywhere, so hes playing well against these guys.The second-year player had a chance for another goal early in the second, but his penalty shot went wide.Most times Patty doesnt score Authentic Marcus Johansson Jersey , you still think he could have had three or four, Maurice said. Didnt miss on the penalty shot by much.Dallas Kari Lehtonen made 17 saves on 21 shots. Ben Bishop replaced Lehtonen after the fourth goal with 8:01 left in the second and stopped five of six shots.Tyler Seguin scored for the Stars late in the second. Alexander Radulov added a goal with 47 seconds to play. They each assisted on the others goal.The Stars lead for the first wild card in the Western Conference dropped to one point over Calgary.We were in a position to take a big step, Stars coach Ken Hitchcock said. We didnt take it. They made us pay for every mistake.Dallas took a quick lead after Radek Faksa won a faceoff, and the puck went back to Pitlick in the left faceoff circle. He unloaded a snap shot past Hutchinson into the upper right corner of the net.Laine reached 30 goals for the second straight season with a snap shot from the right circle and added number 31 from the slot at with 1:13 left in the period.NOTES: Six of Scheifeles 19 goals this season have come in three games against Dallas. Winnipeg has won the first three games of the season series by a combined score of 14-6. Pitlicks goal was his career-high 12th of the season. It was the earliest goal off a faceoff in Stars history. Hutchinson has spent most of this season with Manitoba of the AHL. Enstrom has 54 career goals but had not scored in 87 games since his 53rd on Nov. 3, 2016. Dallas is 1 for 18 on the power play in its last eight games. Winnipeg D Tyler Myers skated gingerly off the ice late in the third period after blocking a shot. Maurice said he believed Myers was OK.UP NEXTJets: Return home to face Nashville on Tuesday.Stars: Play the second in a five-game homestand on Tuesday vs. Calgary. GLENDALE, Ariz. The Arizona Coyotes were coming off lopsided home-ice losses to Calgary (6-1) and Colorado (5-1) when general manager John Chayka, unable to wait any longer for more offense, went out and traded for forward Nick Schmaltz.One game later, with the Coyotes down 3-1 to the Minnesota Wild going into the third period on the road, goaltender Antti Raanta left with a lower-body injury. With backup Darcy Kuemper already injured, coach Rick Tocchet was forced to insert the teams AHL goalie, Adin Hill.Remarkably, the Coyotes on the verge of playing themselves out of contention only 10 days ago havent lost since.Article continues below ...Arizona will take a four-game winning streak, some momentum and some growing confidence into its Thursday night game against the Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals Michael Hutchinson Jersey Womens , who, only a few days ago, had all of the above and more.But the Capitals have lost their last two following a seven-game winning streak and, in a 5-3 loss at the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday, may have lost top-line right wing Tom Wilson for a while with a head injury. Wilson, arguably the NHLs most notorious hitter, was leveled by a blindside hit from Vegas forward Ryan Reaves so hard that it knocked Wilsons helmet off.The Capitals (15-9-3) didnt practice Thursday in advance of the second game of a three-game road trip, a day off that gave them time to think about all they didnt like about the loss in Las Vegas. Namely, losing Wilson and allowing two goals by former Washington defenseman Nate Schmidt in the final two minutes of the game.Reaves targeted him (Wilson) the entire game, Capitals coach Todd Rierden said. You could hear it on every faceoff, you could hear the things that were being said. And its a blindside hit where an unsuspecting player hits his head on the ice. So thats disappointing. You can put two and two together, but he targeted him the entire game.Washington already is without forward T.J. Oshie, who sustained the fifth concussion of his career against the Winnipeg Jets three weeks ago.Hill, one of the NHLs unlikeliest success stories this season http://www.officialdevils.com/authentic-ad...les-wood-jersey , will make his fourth consecutive start on Thursday at Gila River Arena. He is 2-0 with an 0.56 goals-against average following the Coyotes 2-1 win at the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday, when more than a handful of his 25 saves were difficult ones.The Coyotes special teams produced both goals. Schmaltz scored his fourth of the season on the power play and forward Lawson Crouse scored the teams league-leading 11th short-handed goal.But its Hill thats been truly special. And coach Rick Tocchet isnt about to sit down a goaltender who has made 85 saves on 87 shots.Hes unflappable right now, Tocchet said. Hes feeling it, and its a nice story. Hes come in and hes put the plug in for us and hes holding the fort. Well just keep going from there.The Coyotes thought Raanta might be ready by now, but he didnt practice Wednesday and Tocchet said Hill would start again.Its nice to know the staff here in Arizona has confidence in me, and I want to give them no reason not to, Hill said.Schmaltz, acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks, has given the Coyotes top line a much different look since Tocchet put him at center between Alex Galchenyuk and Clayton Keller before a 3-0 win at Nashville on Nov. 29. In the three games since, Keller and Schmaltz have two goals and three assists apiece and Galchenyuk has an assist.Theyve got some chemistry going, Tocchet said. And theyre going to get better. Theres another level between those guys.The Capitals and Coyotes split their two games last season, with each winning in overtime on their home ice. The Coyotes (13-11-2) already have won 13 games; they didnt win their 13th game last season until Feb. 8.

Boston Bruins

:  laiyongcai92 @ 15.5.2019, 6:26
(42-18-9 Florida Panthers Hats Authentic , second in the Eastern Conference) vs. Columbus Blue Jackets (38-28-3, eighth in the Eastern Conference)Columbus, Ohio; Tuesday, 7 p.m. EDTBOTTOM LINE: Columbus hosts Boston in Eastern Conference action.The Blue Jackets are 24-18-1 in Eastern Conference games. Columbus has scored 29 power-play goals, converting on 14.9 percent of chances.The Bruins are 23-14-4 against conference opponents. Boston averages 9.8 penalty minutes per game, the second-most in the Eastern Conference. Brad Marchand leads the team serving 90 total minutes. The matchup Tuesday is the first meeting of the season between the two teams.TOP PERFORMERS: Artemi Panarin has recorded 73 total points while scoring 25 goals and collecting 48 assists for the Blue Jackets. Cam Atkinson has recorded 8 points over the last 10 games for Columbus with six goals and two assists.LAST 10 GAMES: Bruins: 8-1-1, averaging 8.7 points, 3.1 goals, 5.6 assists, 4.4 penalties and 10.6 penalty minutes while giving up 2.1 goals per game with a .924 save percentage.Blue Jackets: 5-5-0 Custom Florida Panthers Jerseys , averaging 5.6 points, two goals, 3.6 assists, three penalties and 6.8 penalty minutes while giving up two goals per game with a .924 save percentage.Blue Jackets Injuries: Boone Jenner: day to day (illness).Bruins Injuries: Marcus Johansson: out (upper body), Kevan Miller: out (upper body), Jake DeBrusk: day to day (lower body), Matt Grzelcyk: day to day (arm). When the Maple Leafs sent a first-round pick and two prospects to the Kings for Jake Muzzin, it didnt exactly open the flood gates a month before the trade deadline.Thats because the standings are slowing everything down.With less than three weeks until the Feb. 25 deadline, there are eight teams within five points of a playoff berth behind the 16 currently holding a slot. The NHL appears to be in wait-and-see mode, even though some big-name players are out there in the trade market. There are far more buyers than sellers right now as general managers wait to see what unfolds and how close they can get to contending.Well know better by Feb. 25 where were at www.officialkings.com , said Florida GM Dale Tallon, whose team is 11 points out. Well go game by game and week by week and then well decide before the deadline what were going to do. Performance will dictate what we do.The Panthers already made one move, acquiring picks and pending free agents Derick Brassard and Riley Sheahan from the Penguins for Jared McCann and Nick Bjugstad. Of course, they could still try to acquire pending free agent winger Artemi Panarin and/or goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky from Columbus.Panarin and Bobrovsky are two of the hottest commodities who could be available, along with Ottawa forwards Matt Duchene and Mark Stone, Philadelphia winger Wayne Simmonds and Carolina winger Micheal Ferland. Need a goalie and dont want to pay for a two-time Vezina Trophy winner like Bobrovsky? Edmontons Cam Talbot or Detroits Jimmy Howard are possibilities.A lack of true sellers could drive up the prices and delay the falling dominoes.Sometimes it drags out a little bit, Washington GM Brian MacLellan said. I think people get frustrated with it, but people are trying to get full value for things they perceive need to be getting full value (for), and it takes it to the end to figure out what is the actual value.MacLellan said the defending Stanley Cup champion Capitals are active in trade talks. Their championship window is wide open now. For teams like the Flyers, the window isnt yet open without some changes.We could both buy and sell Los Angeles Kings T-Shirts Authentic , Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher said. Every decision we make, if were going to try to improve our team going forward and we can get that player now, great. . To be better next year, we may have to try to get better this year.Plenty of calls should be going to Los Angeles GM Rob Blake, who acknowledged the Kings are at the bottom of the league. They have a potential rental in forward Carl Hagelin and some older players with years left on their deals like Jeff Carter and Alec Martinez. It is a team in transition after winning the Cup in 2012 and 2014.Were looking at a lot of different options, Blake said. I dont want to get into specifics of players, but we are actively looking at making moves for the future of the organization.MATTHEWS CASHES INToronto agreed to terms with franchise center Auston Matthews on a $58.17 million, five-year extension. Matthews will make much of his money in signing bonuses during the length of the contract that counts $11.634 million against the salary cap through 2023-24. Matthews and the Maple Leafs agreed on something shorter than the eight years Connor McDavid got in Edmonton to keep his salary under $12 million. It remains to be seen what that means for teammate Mitch Marner and Winnipeg winger Patrik Laine in upcoming contract negotiations, both on cap-strapped teams wanting to win now where perhaps a shorter contract is better.GAME OF THE WEEKThe San Jose Sharks visit the Calgary Flames on Thursday in a matchup of the top two teams in the Pacific Division.LEADERSGoals: Alex Ovechkin (Washington), 37; Assists: Nikita Kucherov (Tampa Bay) Los Angeles Kings Hoodies Authentic , 59; Points: Kucherov, 81; Ice time: Ryan Suter (Minnesota), 26:45; Wins: Marc-Andre Fleury (Vegas), 27; Goals-against average: Robin Lehner (N.Y.

LOS ANGELES (AP) Joc Pederson let his fist bump with a fan in the front row show just how good he was feeling Monday night.The outfielder launched two home runs and tracked down a pair of potential extra-base hits on defense as Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Los Angeles Dodgers jumped back into first place in the NL West with an 8-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies.Were playing well right now Jose Ramirez Jersey , said Pederson, who exchanged pleasantries with a fan after running down Drew Buteras drive in the left-field corner. Its just a good day I guess, you know? Were back in first place. Ryu threw unbelievable and we scored a lot of runs.It was a rough night all-around for the Rockies, who lost slugger Trevor Story to a right elbow injury. The All-Star shortstop tweaked his elbow on a throw in the first inning and aggravated it on a swing in the fourth. He will have tests Tuesday to determine the severity.Colorado not only dropped a half-game behind the Dodgers in the division, the Rockies also fell a half-game behind the Cardinals for the second NL wild card.Story was checked by manager Bud Black and a trainer before leaving the game. Already this season, Story has become the first shortstop in major league history with at least 40 doubles, 30 home runs and 25 steals.We havent learned anything yet, Story said. I just kind of felt something on a throw when I dove for the ball and then my elbow was a little tight. I just tried to play through it and when I swung through that pitch, kind of extended my arm, I felt it a little more. Just being cautious and well find out more (Tuesday).Max Muncy added a three-run homer and Ryu (5-3) pitched seven scoreless innings for the Dodgers, throwing 93 pitches to match a season high. He struck out five and didnt walk a batter as he lowered his ERA to 2.21 over seven starts since returning from a strained left groin.Hes always been a big-game pitcher, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. For him to be healthy and set the tone for this series, he was in complete command tonight. His stuff was really good and we fed off of him.The Rockies entered this showdown series with a half-game lead on Los Angeles, but the teams switched places as the Dodgers unleashed the high-powered offense that helped them win three of four last weekend in St. Louis.Pederson gave a sign of what was ahead when he led off the game for the Dodgers with a home run to the opposite field in left. It was his sixth leadoff homer this season and the ninth of his career. Muncy also scored in the first inning on a wild pitch by Jon Gray (11-8).The Dodgers chased Gray in the third as the first five hitters reached base against the right-hander. Manny Machado had an RBI single that was followed by Muncys three-run drive, his 33rd homer of the season. Yasiel Puigs single ended Grays night.Gray went two-plus innings Ronald Acuna Jr. Jersey , giving up six runs, seven hits and two walks. He hasnt pitched more than four innings in three consecutive starts.I think most of it is mechanical adjustments, but the thing for me is not thinking about the mechanical stuff when Im competing, Gray said. That can get in the way. It got in the way a lot tonight. That happened to me too many times already and Im just sick of it right now.Pederson hit his second homer of the night in the fourth. His two-run shot into the seats in right field off reliever Harrison Musgrave was his 23rd of the season, and moved him within three of matching his career best set in his rookie year of 2015.The Rockies broke through for their first run in the eighth against left-hander Alex Wood on an RBI single from DJ LeMahieu. Wood, charged with two runs in the inning, was removed from the rotation last week.PUIG ROLLS ONPuig had two more hits to give him 25 multihit games this season. Just selected the National League player of the week, primarily for his exploits last weekend in St. Louis, Puig has been a major catalyst for the Dodgers seven victories in their past 11 games.Going back to the start of the teams recent 10-game road trip on Sept. 7, Puig is batting .433 (13 for 30) with a 1.067 OPS. He has six home runs and 11 RBIs in that stretch.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: RHP Seunghwan Oh (tight left hamstring) was available out of the bullpen after not pitching since Sept. 9.Dodgers: 3B Justin Turner was in the starting lineup, with Roberts saying he remains sore in the wrist after Turner was hit by a pitch Saturday at St. Louis. RHP John Axford (broken right leg) was activated from the disabled list along with LHP Tony Cingrani (left shoulder strain). RHP Daniel Hudson (right forearm tightness) was transferred to the 60-day DL.UP NEXTThe Rockies will send LHP Kyle Freeland (15-7, 2.96 ERA) to the mound Tuesday. He is 6-0 with a 2.96 ERA over his last eight starts. The Dodgers will have LHP Clayton Kershaw (8-5, 2.51) on the mound. The longtime ace is 5-1 with a 2.26 ERA in 10 second-half starts. SAN DIEGO (AP) Using an opener for an inning ahead of a traditional starter worked so well for the Texas Rangers on Friday night that theyll do it again on Saturday night.Yohander Mendez followed opener and fellow rookie Connor Sadzeck by scattering three hits in five relief innings and Jurickson Profar had a two-run home run among his three hits to lead the Rangers to a 4-0 victory against the San Diego Padres.Having Sadzeck pitch the first inning allowed the 23-year-old Mendez to pitch into the sixth, when he struck out Eric Hosmer with runners on first and second to end the inning.I thought Mendez did a great job tonight, manager Jeff Banister said. It was a huge moment in the sixth Sean Newcomb Jersey , the at-bat against Hosmer. Really it was one of those grow-up moments for a young pitcher that felt like it was an opportunity for him to put a foot down and make some pitches.Mendez was facing Hosmer for the third time and got him to swing at a change-up for strike three.I say, Thats going to my last hitter. Going to be best opportunity to strike him out or get a ground ball,' Mendez said. For me its great For me its better, my third time that I did like I did. I feel good.Mendez (2-1) struck out five, walked three and was backed by two double plays. Four Rangers pitchers combined to five-hit San Diego.The 23-year-old left-hander originally had been penciled in to make his third start since being recalled on Sept. 2 for his third big league stint this year, but the team then decided to have him follow Sadzeck, a 26-year-old rookie who made his first start.Sadzeck walked leadoff batter Francisco Mejia, a rookie playing for the first time at Petco Park, before getting Wil Myers to ground into a double play and Hunter Renfroe to ground out to end the inning.It flips the lineup, Banister said. That secondary guy comes in and its a little more of an extended look in a sense, deeper into the game.Sadzeck said it was definitely different but that he stuck to his normal routine he uses when relieving, including throwing only 10 to 15 warmup pitches in the bullpen.I approached it just as I would relieving, he said. My job is to get us to the next inning, whether its coming in in the middle of an inning or getting us to the sixth, getting us to the seventh. Thats all I thought about was getting us to the second inning.Banister said left-hander Alex Claudio will be the opener for right-hander Arial Jurado on Saturday night.After hitting singles in his first two at-bats Preston Tucker Jersey , Profar drove the first pitch he saw from Phil Maton into the seats in right with one out in the seventh, his 17th. He drove in two runs and scored twice in the matchup of last-plac ...

Dal Colle, the fifth overall pick from the 2014 draft had struggled to produce in his 10-game NHL stint this season, recording only one assist before Thursday night.Its awesome, Lee said of Dal Colles first goal. You could see the smile on his face right away. The bench was going nuts. Its a special moment for him.Eberle extended his points streak to three games when he converted on the power play at 15:12 of the first period. He patiently waited at the faceoff circle to the left of Blackwood until an opening presented itself. Eberle has five points in the last seven games since returning to the lineup.Greene tipped Damon Seversons shot at 7:07 of the third period to spoil Lehners shutout bid. Jesper Bratt also assisted on the play.We didnt have enough bite. We didnt have close to enough bite, Devils coach John Hynes said after the team lost for the fifth time in a seven-game span.

TORONTO (AP) Tampa Bays stirring September

:  liny195 @ 7.5.2019, 6:20
run took a sudden sour turn in Toronto.Justin Smoak homered with two outs in the ninth inning to give the Blue Jays a 9-8 victory over the Rays on Thursday night Paul Molitor Jersey , dealing a blow to Tampa Bays wild-card playoff hopes.This one definitely puts us in a very difficult position, Rays infielder Matt Duffy said. Were going to bounce back, were going to do what we can. Mathematically were still in it so were going to keep going until this thing is over.The Rays entered having won five straight and a major league-high 14 games in September, a surge that had brought them within 5 1-2 games of Oakland in the race for the ALs second wild card.Especially when the team is rolling like this, its tough to let these guys down, Rays right-hander Jamie Schultz said after allowing four runs in the ninth.Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash was playing down his teams postseason chances after a dispiriting defeat that saw his team concede three home runs in a seven-run bottom of the ninth.In reality, were much farther than people are wanting to recognize, Cash said. We need a lot of things to go in our favor. Losses like this dont help.Smoak won it with his team-leading 25th homer of the season and third career walk-off blast. Sergio Romo (3-4) blew his eighth save in 30 opportunities.Romo, hes got a good slider, Smoak said. I was just trying to get a pitch up and out over the plate. I felt like all night I was kinda pulling off everything so I just tried to stay on it. I was able to put a good swing on it finally.Right-hander David Paulino (1-0) pitched an inning for the victory as Toronto won for the fourth time in its past five.Trailing 8-2 to begin the ninth, the Blue Jays roared back. Rowdy Tellez hit an RBI double and Danny Jansen chased Schultz with a three-run homer. Romo came on and struck out Richard Urena, but pinch hitter Kendrys Morales reached on a bloop single and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. tied it with a two-run homer to left.Smoak followed with a first pitch drive to right, Torontos fourth homer of the game. It marked the eighth time this season the Blue Jays have hit back-to-back home runs.Anytime youre up 8-2 and find a way to lose the game, thats tough, Cash said.C.J. Cron had three RBI for the Rays, who dropped 6 1/2 games behind Oakland. The Athletics routed the Los Angeles Angels 21-3 on Thursday.Oakland has nine games remaining while the Rays have 10 http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authenti...anderson-jersey , including six more with Toronto. Tampa Bay is 9-4 against the Blue Jays this season.I think this game tonight is definitely more of an outlier than anything, Duffy said. Unfortunately, the timing of it is not great.Tellez opened the scoring with a two-run homer off Rays right-hander Ryne Stanek in the second, his second. The Rays answered against right-hander Sam Gaviglio in the fourth, when Pham hit an RBI triple and Wendle followed with a double.Adames hit for Brandon Lowe with one out and runners at first and second in the sixth. Right-hander Jake Petricka replaced lefty Jose Fernandez (0-1), but Adames put the Rays in front with a ground ball single up the middle, his first career pinch-hit RBI. Kevin Kiermaier walked to load the bases but Tim Mayza came on and struck out pinch hitters Cron and Carlos Gomez.Stanek made his 27th start as the Rays used an opener for the 50th time this season. Yonny Chirinos (5-5) replaced Stanek after the first three batters reached safely in the second and pitched 4 2-3 innings.Tampa Bay looked to have broken it open with a five-run, 10-batter seventh. Cron had the big hit, a two-out, bases-loaded bloop single that dropped in front of sliding left fielder Billy McKinney, allowing Kiermaier to score from first.EXTRA, EXTRA!Tellez has 10 extra base hits in his first 40 plate appearances. According to STATS, that ties Taylor Teagarden (2008) for the most since 1913.STAYING GROUNDEDGaviglio retired the first six batters in order on ground balls, four of them comebackers to the mound.SWIPE RIGHTThe Rays set a season-high with four stolen bases.TRAINERS ROOMRays: Tampa Bay recalled OF Austin Meadows, LHP Hoby Milner, RHP Austin Pruitt and RHP Chih-Wei Hu from Triple-A Durham. The Rays have 35 players on the roster.UP NEXTRays RHP Diego Castillo will start Friday against Blue Jays RHP Sean Reid-Foley (2-3 Justin Smoak Jersey , 5.54).
