Why would the Western Bulldogs pick a giant ruckman in the first round of the AFL draft when everybody knows Luke Beveridge prefers mobile rucks who can play multiple roles?And why would they select a skinny, 205cm prospect when clubs are generally moving away from spending precious first-round picks on project ruckmen?Because Tim English isnt a traditional ruckman. Mitchell Trubisky Youth Jersey .The West Australian played most of his junior football as a midfielder before a growth spurt forced a positional change.That should help English adjust to Beveridges different approach to the role of the ruckman.With less of a premium placed on winning the tap, the Dogs ranked 16th for hitouts in their premiership season and Jordan Roughead, their first-choice ruck, was a key-position player before Beveridge arrived at Whitten Oval.English says hes up for the challenge.(The coach) does like mobile ruckmen and its a huge honour that the (clubs) list management have the faith in me to be able to play that role, English said.At South Fremantle, that was my role so hopefully its similar here.Mobility is one of my strengths, so maybe Im not (a traditional ruckman).Such is Englishs ability to cover the ground and win his own ball, hes been favourably compared to West Coast great Dean Cox.I cant really control what peoples opinions are ... Id be stoked if I could be half as good as Dean Cox, he said.Obviously its a huge comparison, Im pretty humbled by that, but I havent really achieved anything yet.Weighing just 92kg, English has significant work to do to get his body up to AFL standard and will likely spend 2017 in the gym and learning his craft at VFL level.English and fellow draftees Patrick Lipinski, Lewis Young and Fergus Greene joined the Bulldogs first-to-fourth-year players on Tuesday at Whitten Oval.The 2016 premiership party will be over for the rest of the playing group when full pre-season training begins next week.

NEW YORK -- Almost everybody in Madison Square Garden was impressed with the game Amile Jefferson had for No. Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey . 5 Duke.Nobody appreciated it more than Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski.Jefferson set career highs with 24 points and 15 rebounds to lead Duke to an 84-74 victory over No. 21 Florida on Tuesday night in the Jimmy V Classic.Amile played one of the great games, Krzyzewski said. God bless him. He was fantastic.Luke Kennard scored 29 points and freshman Jayson Tatum added 22 for the Blue Devils (9-1), whose only loss was to Kansas on this same court in the Champions Classic in November.Krzyzewski also praised Kennard, who established his career high for points in the previous game against Maine.Lukes played fantastic, Krzyzewski said. When you get 29 points on 16 shots -- what hed have, 35 against Maine? Really efficient. Hes come through for us beautifully. Hes starting to put it together a little bit.Twice in the final 8 minutes the Gators (7-2) got within seven points but both times Kennard scored to hold off Florida, once with a 3-pointer and again with a long layup off a steal.Down the stretch in that second half, every time they made a play, we did a great job of coming back and taking the air out of the ball, using 20 seconds and then getting up a good shot, Jefferson said. Whether it was Luke, whether it was Jayson, whether it was G (Grayson Allen) penetrating and finding somebody, our guys did an amazing job of never splintering.The 6-foot-9 Jefferson, who also blocked four shots, was 11 for 14 from the field. Kennard went 11 of 16, including 5 for 7 from 3-point range.Kevaughn Allen led Florida with 21 points, and John Egbunu had nine points and 12 rebounds.They were a better team tonight, Florida coach Mike White said. I thought our guys were really jacked up for the opportunity. I thought Amile Jefferson was amazing, just absolutely amazing.Duke closed the first half with an 8-2 run -- Jefferson and Tatum had four points each -- for a 41-31 lead.Allen, Dukes preseason All-America, had an off night shooting (2 for 10, including 1 for 5 on 3s) but he had eight assists to go with his six points.I thought Jayson came out tonight and did an amazing job of just letting it all out, Jefferson said. Luke is the smoothest player in the country. So playing with these guys has been so much fun so far.BIG PICTUREFlorida: In the first eight games of the season, six different players led the Gators in scoring. ... White was 3 years old when Krzyzewski started coaching at Duke. ... Because of renovations at the OConnell Center on the Florida campus, the Gators wont play their first home game until Dec. 21 against Arkansas-Little Rock. All their games are either on the road or at neutral sites until then.Duke: Krzyzewski is 29-10 at Madison Square Garden as Duke coach. ... The Blue Devils lead the all-time series with Florida 13-4. ... Jefferson was coming off a career-high 20 points against Maine. He had 14 rebounds four times. ... Duke had five double-figure scorers in seven of its nine games coming in. The Blue Devils had three against Florida, all over 20 points.I think were really close if were not there, Kennard said. I think we really, really shared the ball well tonight on the offensive end because we have a lot of scorers. We have a lot of playmakers and a lot of scorers and the way we can share the ball, its pretty special. Not a lot of teams have that many scorers on a team and when we share the ball and get open shots, we can be really dangerous on the offensive end.JIMMY VThroughout both games, videos were shown during timeouts featuring cancer survivors or those whose life has been affected by the disease. The Garden also showed Jim Valvanos speech at the ESPYs when he announced the formation of the V Foundation for Cancer Research. The crowd of 15,294 broke into a prolonged round of applause when it ended with Valvanos now famous Dont give up. Dont ever give up.I miss him, Krzyzewski said of Valvano. Im glad he had the vision to get this thing started.GOOD DBoth teams played solid man-to-man defense and it was such a halfcourt game that there were only 18 fast-break points, 10 for Florida.FAMILY TIESKevin White, the athletic director at Duke, is the father of Florida coach Mike White.UP NEXTFlorida: The Gators head for a real rivalry game, Sunday at Florida State.Duke: On Saturday the Blue Devils travel to Las Vegas to meet UNLV. Reuben Foster Youth Jersey . Fellow centre Pavel Datsyuk remains out because of a concussion. Zetterberg has 11 goals and 19 assists for a team-high 30 points, and Datsyuk has a team-high 12 goals and 11 assists. Solomon Thomas 49ers Jersey .

If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. The NRLs new hard-line stance on off-field issues has the backing of the games elite players, according to Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga.Andrew Fifita and Semi Radradra were ruled ineligible by the NRL for selection on Australias Four Nations tour due to their off-field issues.NRL boss Todd Greenberg said it was an indication of what players had to lose if they did not uphold the values and behaviour expected of them.It is a sentiment that those who were selected in the 24-man Australian squad agree with, as does Meninga himself.I support it, Meninga said.I believe in all honesty the Kangaroos jersey should be held in high esteem and all the players should be great role models on and off the field.I spoke with the players about it in Newcastle (in the lead-up to the mid-season Test, Meningas first in charge of the Kangaroos) and they are of the same view. Solomon Thomas Jersey. Former NRL bad boys Josh Dugan and Blake Ferguson are part of Meningas squad for the Four Nations in Britain.Meninga said the pair were an example to troubled players of what can happen if you do turn your lives around away from football.There are some players there in the squad with some great stories because they have turned things around, Meninga said.The Australians play New Zealand in a one-off Test in Perth on October 15.Meninga said he would pick his best side for that match at nib Stadium.It is a Test match, we will pick our strongest 17, he said.Australia open their Four Nations campaign against Scotland Hull on October 28.

HOUSTON -- The playoffs are starting early for the Houston Texans. Delano Hill Jersey .At least thats what coach Bill OBrien and players are telling themselves after three straight losses capped by Sundays 21-13 defeat at Green Bay has erased their lead in the AFC South.Moving forward, every game is a playoff game, starting next week in Indianapolis, quarterback Brock Osweiler said. We know how important every single week is.The Texans (6-6) have led their division all season, but their first three-game skid since October 2014 has them with the same record as Tennessee.And a win by Indianapolis on Monday night against the New York Jets would leave the Colts at 6-6, too.Despite the matching records, Houston holds the tiebreaker with a 3-0 division mark.Despite that, Houston knows it has to get back on track quickly if it hopes to secure its second consecutive AFC South title.Three of the Texans last four games are within the division with their trip to Indianapolis followed by games against the Jaguars and Bengals before the regular-season finale at Tennessee.We know the type of team that we have in this locker room, receiver DeAndre Hopkins said. We know our goals are still in front of us and we havent accomplished our goals, so we have to put these three losses behind us and move forward.Though the offense stalled at times on Sunday in a game where snow was falling throughout, Osweiler looked better than he did the previous week.He threw two touchdown passes and did not have a turnover after throwing three interceptions in a loss to San Diego.His performance on Sunday gave him 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions this season, his first in Houston after joining the Texans from Denver in the offseason.The Texans rank 28th in total offense in large part because of a passing game that is the third-worst in the NFL by averaging just 194.9 yards a game.I feel like were very close to exploding as an offense and Ive been saying that all season long, Osweiler said.But its true we are three, four plays away from changing multiple football games. Because of that, I dont think we can get discouraged. You cant. Theres no time to get discouraged.An encouraging development from Sundays game was Osweiler connecting with Hopkins for a touchdown pass.Many of Osweilers interceptions this season have come when hes tried to force the ball to his star receiver despite him facing near-constant double teams. It was his first touchdown reception since Oct. 9.Hopkins was asked why the offense has struggled this season.I cant pinpoint it, he said. I am just out there doing my job and trying to help this team however I can.Of course the offense wasnt the only problem on Sunday. Houstons pass rush took a hit with 2014 top overall pick Jadeveon Clowney missing his first game this season because of a wrist injury.Its unclear if hell be able to return this week after taking a beating in his first year playing defensive end with J.J. Watt out for the season after back surgery.The secondary also had trouble against the Packers when veteran cornerback Johnathan Joseph injured his ribs in the fourth quarter and was replaced by Charles James.James, who normally plays mostly on special teams, fell on the slippery field allowing Jordy Nelson to get past him on a 32-yard touchdown catch that gave Green Bay the lead for good.Also injured on Sunday was rookie receiver Braxton Miller, who will be day to day this week with a shoulder injury and running back Lamar Miller. OBrien said Miller is dealing with injuries to four different areas of his body.He has been on the injury report with shoulder, ankle and rib injuries, but it is unclear what other problem he has.OBrien said he spoke to the team on Monday about the importance of everyone, including the coaching staff, stepping up to turn things around.Got to do a better job and ... if we dont then were not going to be where we want to be, OBrien said. But if we do well have a shot to win these games.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Ethan Pocic Jersey . With his new coach and six-time Grand Slam singles champion Boris Becker watching him during an official match for the first time, Djokovic appeared tentative early against the Slovakian player, who often appeared content to keep the ball in play.

Thats not a comment on the suspension that banished the Portland Winterhawks general manager and coach from his Western Hockey League teams bench for most of the 2012-13 season. http://www.seahawksfansofficial.com/shaquill-griffin-jersey/ . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. MORAGA, Calif. -- Jock Landale credits his teammates for finding him at all the right moments in all the right places to make his shots at a remarkably reliable rate. Opposing coach Dave Wojcik praises Landale for the ease with which he scores through double-teams.Landale is shooting at a 75-percent clip this season, and the emerging big man is the biggest reason No. 15 Saint Marys is on a roll. His balanced supporting cast sure helps, too.The 6-foot-11 center scored 24 points and didnt miss a shot until 6:49 remained, and the Gaels beat Bay Area neighbor San Jose State 81-64 on Tuesday night.When asked if he knew what Landale was shooting, fellow Australian Emmett Naar responded: Probably pretty bad, I imagine. Hes not very good.Twelve percent, Landale said, chuckling.Landale has made 36 of 48 field goal attempts over his first four games for Saint Marys (4-0), which followed up a 61-57 victory Saturday at Dayton with another impressive win. He went 9 for 10 and also had seven rebounds, three assists and two blocked shots.Landale has emerged as a force in the low post as senior starting forward Dane Pineau deals with lower back issues that have limited him so far.Weve got to throw him the ball; hes a beast in there, said Naar, who added 16 points.Calvin Hermanson also scored 16 for Saint Marys.With coach Randy Bennett remaining cautious, Pineau didnt play at all for the first time in four games after his back flared up again before tipoff.Joe Rahon contributed eight points, seven assists, five rebounds and three blocks for Saint Marys, which holds its highest ranking in the AP poll since it also was 15th in 1959. The program is ranked in the preseason poll for the first time.Ryan Welage scored 17 points and Jaycee Hillsman had 16 for San Jose State (1-3), which hung tough with the West Coast Conference favorite for most of the game but couldnt avoid a third straight defeat.Its a good measuring stick for us, Wojcik said. Nobody in the country thought we would win the game. I just told them, `We believe and youve got to prove yourself.Saint Marys shot 60.7 percent in the first half but led only 43-40 at the break as San Jose State toook advantage of 10 Saint Marys fouls and converted 10 of 11 free throws. Malik McDowell Seahawks Jersey. I didnt think our starters came out and played as well as we need to defensively, Bennett said. We dont give up 40 points in a half very often. The problem was never offensively. Our deal is were going to have to be consistent defensively.COSTLY TECHNICALSan Jose States Brandon Clarke was whistled for his third foul with 14:01 left and it turned into a costly four-point swing that produced a 58-51 Saint Marys lead after he picked up a technical for swearing after the initial call.The Gaels used that play to start an 18-2 run and build a 72-53 lead.Clarke apologized to his teammates for his second career technical.That kind of spun the game around, he said. I just pretty much told them sorry. I just felt like that was a turning point and I let them down with that play. Its stuff I can learn from.Wojcik liked the emotion, the coach just wished his sophomore forward had kept it to himself.BIG PICTURESan Jose State: The Spartans last victory against a Top 25 team was 60-59 in overtime against No. 19 Alabama on Dec. 27, 1996. ... The Spartans havent beaten Saint Marys since Nov. 26, 2000, in Moraga, and this was the first matchup between the teams since Nov. 20, 2009.Saint Marys: The Gaels matched their longest winning streak in the series at six. ...

Everton boss Roberto Martinez hailed his sides complete performance following their 3-0 victory at Stoke. Wayne Gallman Jersey . Martinezs side raced into a three-goal lead before the break in Saturdays Premier League clash at the Britannia Stadium thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku, Seamus Coleman and Aaron Lennon as they moved above their opponents and back into the top half of the Premier League. And Martinez was pleased with the way Everton coped with the lead after seeing his team lose advantages a number of times this season.It was complete performance, Martinez told Sky Sports. You come to the Britannia Stadium and you know you will face a Stoke side that can compete in every aspect of their performance.Theyve got really good individual players. We defended really well but the way we created opportunities was very pleasing. Roberto Martinez hailed Evertons performance following their 3-0 win at Stoke There have been many times this season where we have started games well, he added. We get good chances and score goals and then from that moment on, we havent been able to take advantage of those leads.Against Stoke, it was very similar to what we did against Newcastle and in the FA Cup fourth round. Weve been able to start these games well with a lot of concentration but once we had that lead, we were able to use it to our advantage and create even more clear-cut opportunities in the second half.The way we kept our concentration for the 90 minutes was very pleasing. Aaron Lennon scored his third goal in three games as Everton ran out 3-0 winners away to Stoke City Lukaku scored his 20th goal of the season in the win at Stoke, becoming the first Everton player to score 20 or more goals in consecutive seasons since Graeme Sharp achieved the feat in the 1984-85 and 1985-86 seasons.Martinez was full of praise for the Belgium international, who was a doubt with a back injury before the game at the Britannia Stadium.Ive seen it many times, Martinez said. He will do anything to make himself available and at times, hes not 100 per cent but he wants to be out there and be a focal point.Hes not a player you are going to keep away easily. Everton celebrate Romelu Lukakus early opener Everton are now up to seventh in the Premier League after Saturdays victory and Martinez could not hide his delight at his sides performance.He added: I thought we had a really good mix and we were a really balanced side. We look like a really hungry team and with the quality we have thats very pleasing.Its a really important moment in our season and we needed to get a positive result against Newcastle.We knew today was a real opportunity to show our intent and I couldnt be happier with the manner of the performance.

Clippards deal Monday means all eight Nationals players who filed for arbitration wound up settling before a hearing. BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Suddenly, No. 17 Michigan State finds itself in a heap of trouble.The Spartans blew a 14-point lead in the final 16 minutes Saturday night, losing the Old Brass Spittoon to Indiana for the first time in a decade. Theyve lost back-to-back games for the first time since November 2012, and now the defending Big Ten champs must find a way to dig themselves out of this midseason mess.Players are competitors, you hope theyre competitors and if not then we recruited the wrong guys, coach Mark Dantonio said after Saturdays 24-21 overtime loss at Indiana. Theres a lot of football teams that dont go to the playoffs or win a Big Ten championship, you keep playing and you play yourself into situations on where you want to go.Its been a long time since the Spartans (2-2, 0-2 Big Ten) have faced such a predicament.Over the past three-plus seasons, Michigan State is 38-7, and the Spartans have played in three of the first five conference championship games. Getting back will be tough.No. 2 Ohio State (4-0, 1-0) and No. 4 Michigan (5-0, 1-0) already have two fewer losses. Maryland (4-0, 1-0) and Indiana (3-1, 1-0) also are unbeaten in conference play, and, incredibly, the Spartans are tied with Rutgers in the division basement.The standings are only part of the problem.Quarterback Tyler OConnor was a solid 21-of-35 passing for 263 yards and three TDs on Saturday but wound up getting sacked on Michigan States last two plays in overtime. The result: Usually reliable kicker Michael Geiger missed a 49-yard field goal to the left. He also had a makeable field goal blocked in the first quarter.Defensively, injuries have taken a toll. Michigan State started Saturdays game without starting linebackers Riley Bullough or Jon Reschhke, and a parade of defensive players left during the game. Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey. While most returned, cornerback Darian Hicks did not after appearing to his hip. Dantonio did not provide a postgame update on the diagnosis.Thats still not all.The officials called 11 penalties against Michigan State, including a targeting call that led to the ejection of nose tackle Malik McDowell on a touchdown pass, and the leaping penalty on cornerback Drake Martinez that gave the Hoosiers a second chance at the winning score.It was frustrating for Dantonio to watch again.Too many mistakes by us, too many penalties, too many plays we didnt make that would have been great plays, some of them, he said.Dantonio told reporters that if there is going to be a turnaround, it will start with what he does.But there was plenty of blame to go around.Receiver Donnie Corley had a defender beaten by two steps for what would have been a 97-yard TD pass early in the third quarter -- if the ball hadnt slipped through his hands.OConnor wasnt exactly thrilled with his performance, either.We took some shots and some were good throws, some werent as on the money as wed like them to be, OConnor said. But there were definitely plays to be made down there and we have to make them.Especially now, with no more margin for error.This ones going to sting until we watch it tomorrow, OConnor said. Thats our job as leaders, to get everyone kind of back and remind everybody what this program is and not to get used to this and this isnt what were about. Everything that happened, was on us.---Online:AP college football coverage at www.collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- In unfamiliar territory in November, Minnesota has a piece of the lead in the Big Ten West and faces tough opponents in the final stretch. Patrick Mahomes II Youth Jersey .Tied with Nebraska and Wisconsin atop the division at 4-2, Minnesota closes out the regular season on the road against the No. 21 Cornhuskers, hosts Northwestern and travels to the No. 7 Badgers.Minnesota is 7-2 overall and has won four straight, with the losses coming against Penn State and Iowa. The Gophers have yet to play a ranked team. Still, win out and theyll be in the Big Ten Championship game for the first time.The Gophers havent even won a share of the Big Ten since 1967. They got close in 2014 when they went into the final game with a chance to go to the championship game, but were denied by Wisconsin.Weve got a great group of seniors, and we felt like if we played well we could get to November and be in that discussion still, Minnesota coach Tracy Claeys said Tuesday on the Big Ten coaches teleconference.It makes it exciting to get into November and you still have a chance, he said. I figured with the West teams playing five road games that the winner was probably going to have two losses. We burnt ours up right away in those first two, but our kids have responded and just kept fighting and winning each week.BANGED UPNorthwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald noted how the road gets tougher in November when players are getting banged up and worn down. The Wildcats (4-5, 3-3 Big Ten) dropped a 21-7 game against Wisconsin last Saturday, one week after taking Ohio State down to the final drive before losing 24-20.Everybody goes to November beat up mentally and physically, and it comes down to which team shows up physically, mentally and executes in November, Fitzgerald said. Its not a sexy time of the year, man, this is grind it out, get it done, and obviously were off to a slow start losing our last two.He said November is where depth often gets tested because of injuries.I think some schools have a few more bullets than maybe other schools, and you have to find a way just to get one more play and find a way to win, he said.BADGERS TWEETWisconsin coach Paul Chryst said he was proud of the players who took to Twitter on Monday to post a statement about racial injustices on campus. That message came after the game on Oct. 29 Wisconsin when a fan donned a Halloween costume depicting President Barack Obama with a noose around his neck.The statement was shared by several black players on the team along with other black student-athletes. In part, it read: This incident was yet another blow and reminder that there are people in this community that may not value diverse populations.Weve got smart student-athletes and I applaud them for expressing themselves, and the way they did it, Chryst said. And I think a lot of thought went into it, and its out of love and respect for this university. They want to make it better, and I admire them. Its not easy, right? They could just sit back and say, `Its not my job, its not my responsibility.ARMSTRONGS STATUSNebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr.s status for Saturdays game against Minnesota is questionable after apparently suffering a concussion last week against Ohio State.Armstrong was knocked out briefly during the second quarter after his head bounced off the turf while being tackled by Ohio State safety Malik Hooker. He was strapped to a backboard and taken to a hospital. He returned to the sidelines in street clothes in the third quarter.Tommys doing well, but as we all know he will go through that whole protocol (for) a head injury, and we dont know what that means yet as far as being available for the weekend, Nebraska coach Mike Riley said. It goes through the process, and well go day by day with it.So far, its pretty well on track.

Wardo stood tall. But we still need to find a way to score. We need to get different results offensively.It was Carolinas sixth straight home victory and snapped a three-game skid versus Tampa Bay. The Hurricanes have won just two of their last 10 games against the Lightning.And it was Carolinas first overtime win in six tries this season.When I got sent down (to Charlotte of the AHL on Nov. 11) the team got going, and when I came back (on Nov. 27) we were still playing well, Di Giuseppe said. We havent been getting many breaks, but tonight we did and thats nice. We played hard all 60 minutes, limited them to few Grade-A chances and Wardo made the big saves when he needed to and came out with a `W.Lightning coach Jon Cooper thought the winner should have been waved off because Stalberg bumped goalie Ben Bishops stick while Di Giuseppe shot.It was 100 percent goalie interference, Cooper said. The rule is in place for goalies to be able to make a save. Intention has nothing to do with it. (Bishops) stick was kicked and he was unable to make a save. Im blown away. Im mystified. I dont get it.Tampa Bay, without injured star Steven Stamkos, lost for the fifth time in six games. Its last regulation win was over Philadelphia on Nov. 23.Ward had 30 saves in his 25th career shutout. Tanoh Kpassagnon Chiefs Jersey. Bishop stopped 29 shots.It was one of those games when it was only going to take one, said Ward, who in his eighth season has the longest tenure of any of the current Hurricanes. We played smart and didnt press. We didnt take too many chances and waited for our opportunities. Our penalty kill has been a difference for us all season, and we contained them tonight. At the end of the day its about winning hockey games, and this team really wants to win.The Hurricanes, who have been the NHLs best penalty killers this season, dodged a bullet late in the third period when they killed off consecutive minors, including 22 seconds of 5-on-3.Its a good feeling to be winning like this at home, alternate captain Jeff Skinner said. You want to be able to establish an identity early in the year of being a tough team to play against at home. Weve done a good job over the last couple of weeks at home. Now our job is to try and take care of things on the road.Game notes Hurricanes C Elias Lindholm (lower body) missed his second straight game, while D Klas Dahlbeck and D Ryan Murphy were healthy scratches. ... Lightning D Jason Garrison (lower body) missed his second straight game and RW Ryan Callahan (lower body) his fourth. LW Jonathan Drouin missed the game with an undisclosed issue, while D Nikita Nesterov was a healthy extra. ... The teams will meet three times this season, with the other two contests at Tampa Bay on Dec. 31 and March 1.UP NEXTLightning: Host Vancouver on Wednesday night in the first of a two-game homestand.Hurricanes: Visit Anaheim on Tuesday night in the first of their three-game California road trip.

The Los Angeles Angels placed closer Huston Street on the 15-day disabled list because of inflammation in his right knee two days after he blew a three-run lead in the ninth. DeShone Kizer Browns Jersey .Street surrendered five runs, including a three-run homer to Bostons Dustin Pedroia,?in a 5-3 loss on Sunday.The right-handed Street has converted only nine of 12 save opportunities this season.To take Streets place on the roster, the Angels recalled right-handed reliever Mike Morin from Triple-A Salt Lake City.Manager Mike Scioscia said that in Streets absence, the Angels are prepared to use a committee of pitchers in the ninth inning. David Njoku Youth Jersey . The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. Zane Gonzalez Jersey . The team says the Spain international has a muscle pull in his right leg. Barcelona hosts third-division side Cartagena in the return leg of their round-of-32 tie after winning their first meeting 4-1. http://www.authenticbrownsnflfansmall.com/c-78-browns-larry-ogunjobi-jersey.aspx . Olli Jokinen, Mark Scheifele, and Bryan Little each had a goal and an assist as Winnipeg won 5-2, handing Calgary its record-setting seventh consecutive loss on home ice. HOUSTON -- The Astros had established such a comfort in the reliability of their high-leverage relievers that little could prepare them for what unfolded on Friday night against the Angels.Right-handers Luke Gregerson and Ken Giles, half of the Astros quartet of rock-solid relief pitchers (a group that also includes right-handers Chris Devenski and Will Harris) combined to cough up a three-run lead in a 10-6 loss that severely damaged the Astros playoff aspirations. Gregerson allowed a run on two hits in the eighth inning; Giles blew his fifth save by coming apart at the seams in the ninth.Giles surrendered six earned runs on three hits and three walks, inflating his ERA from 3.47 to 4.31 in the process. With eight games remaining in their season and their deficit for the second American League wild card now 21/2 games behind the Tigers, the Astros were left floored by the development involving Giles in particular.Toughest inning of the year, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. For a lot of reasons.Added Giles: I didnt do my job. Didnt make my pitches. Thats all I can say. I just didnt do it.The Astros (81-73) have lost twice as many games to the Angels (68-86) over the first two games of this series than they did in the first 12 meetings between the teams this season. At best, they can salvage a split of the four-game set with victories on Saturday night and Sunday.Right-hander Brad Peacock (0-0, 2.866 ERA) will make his fourth start for the Astros in the third game of the series. Howard Wilson Youth Jersey. Peacock, who has filled in admirably for injured left-hander Dallas Keuchel (left shoulder inflammation), is 3-0 with a 4.50 ERA in five career games (three starts) against the Angels. He has not pitched against Los Angeles this season.Angels right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (4-6, 5.26 ERA) will make his 33rd appearance and 21st start of the season. Chacin is 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA in five career games (four starts) against the Astros, including 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in two games this season.Chacin, who will make his 16th start for the Angels, has toggled between the rotation and bullpen for the Angels, rejoining the rotation on Sept. 14 against the Mariners after making four appearances out of the bullpen between Aug. 27 and Sept. 10. In his last four starts for the Angels, Chacin has pitched to a 0.87 ERA.I think Jhoulys has the ability to do both, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. Hes done very well out of our pen and recently with some adjustments that hes made hes been very effective as a starter. I think his upside is still as a major league starter and I know thats what he wants to do and I think he can be effective doing that but if not hes shown he can throw out of our bullpen.

NEW YORK -- Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebows performance with Mets farmhands in the instructional league was strong enough to warrant him continuing his development in the Arizona Fall League. Mike Williams Jersey .Tebow will report Sunday to the Scottsdale Scorpions.The AFL season begins Oct. 11, with Tebows squad opening at Glendale at 3:35 p.m. ET.?Mets farmhands will be paired with prospects from the Diamondbacks, Yankees, Phillies and Giants on the Scottsdale team. Mets first base/outfield coach Tom Goodwin?is expected to manage the Scorpions once New Yorks playoff run is complete.Tebow hit .286 (4-for-14) with one home run, two RBIs and two walks in three instructional league games. The long ball came on the first pitch he faced in an organized game since his junior year of high school. He logged five innings in left field in each game.Originally, the instructional league was scheduled to run through the remainder of this week. However, it was cut short because of the impending arrival of Hurricane Matthew, which has prompted Florida Gov. Rick Scott to declare a state of emergency.When the Mets signed Tebow to a minor-league deal, they indicated they would wait to see his instructional league performance before deciding whether to send him to the AFL or a winter league, or whether providing him individual instruction this offseason would be more beneficial.We want Tim to play in more games to continue developing his skills on the field while facing advanced competition, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said in a statement.Said Tebow: Working in the instructional league has been a lot of fun and productive. We worked hard and I was able to see a lot of pitches and work on different things. There was great coaching and I tried to improve every day. I plan to use the Fall League as an opportunity to improve. Its a blessing and a great opportunity. Mike Williams Youth Jersey .

Lam was the inspiration behind Connachts charge to the Guinness PRO12 title last term and leaves big shoes to fill at the province.This has been one of the most difficult decisions Ive had to make in my life as Connacht and Galway is such a special place for myself and my family, Lam said. The friendships, support and memories we all have experienced throughout our time in the West of Ireland is truly heartfelt and will never be forgotten.I feel extremely blessed to have been given an opportunity four years ago to build on the excellent work of Eric Elwood. Im very proud that I can now pass on the baton with the knowledge that Connacht Rugby is truly seen as one of four strong provinces of Irish rugby.And on his move to Bristol, Lam said: Im excited about the opportunity to coach and lead Bristol Rugby -- a proud club with history, tradition and a bright future ahead.
