In their season-opening games Winnipeg Jets Hats Authentic , the Pittsburgh Penguins won in overtime but thought there was a fair amount of room for improvement and the Montreal Canadiens lost in overtime but were encouraged by what they thought was a strong performance.That sets an interesting stage for the matchup on Saturday at PPG Paints Arena.“I’m disappointed in the loss — you always think you could have, should have won the game — but I’m not disappointed in the effort we put out,” Montreal coach Claude Julien said of a 3-2 loss to Toronto.Article continues below ...“If we keep putting out the same effort and improve in certain areas where we didn’t do as well, there’s no doubt that if we play as well as we did, we’re going to give ourselves a chance every night.”Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan put his club’s chances a little lower in a similar scenario after a last-one-out-turn-off-the-lights 7-6 win over defending Stanley Cup champion Washington.“We were pleased with the results of the game, but if we played that game 10 times over, we’d win five and lose five,” Sullivan said of trading chances at a rapid rate. “That’s not a formula for success.”Pittsburgh swept all three games against the Canadiens last season, scoring five goals in each game.While the Penguins retain a core of players and a high-paced philosophy that helped them win the Stanley Cup in 2016 and ’17 Custom Winnipeg Jets Jerseys , the Canadiens are looking for a new direction.Against the Maple Leafs, the Canadiens made veterans Tomas Plekanec and Carl Alzner healthy scratches in favor of a younger, speedy lineup. That included Jesperi Kotkaniemi, an 18-year-old center who made his NHL debut and played 15 minutes.“I don’t think he looked out of place,” Julien said of Kotkaniemi. “If you want to win hockey games, you have to put players on the ice who are capable of making plays, and he’s one of them.”Not to mention players with wheels.“We used that speed, especially on the forecheck, to take time and speed away from (Toronto) www.officialknightsproshop.com ,” Canadiens goaltender Carey Price said, according to the Montreal Gazette.Pittsburgh is expecting more of the same from the Canadiens.“They’re going to be a young, fast team, and those are teams that you can get trapped with,” Penguins defenseman Brian Dumoulin said. “You can take them lightly and get into a track meet and they can end up beating you. They’re definitely a team we’re not taking lightly. They had a great game against Toronto.“It’s a speed game right now. If you can’t adapt to that style, you’re going to have a tough time playing (against them). You’ve always got to be aware of speed.”The Penguins should know. That’s the style they play, and it could be argued they started the trend that a lot of teams are following.They find themselves trying the same tactics — taking away shooting lanes, playing in opponents’ faces — that teams have been trying to use against them.“We see it, too Vegas Golden Knights T-Shirts Authentic , and it’s frustrating,” Dumoulin said. “But I think a lot of teams are going with that style.” NEW YORK (AP) — Harry Howell, the Hall of Fame defenseman who played the most games in New York Rangers‘ history, has died. He was 86.Howell died Saturday night. He had been living at an assisted care facility near his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario.A seven-time All-Star, Howell played 1,160 games for the Rangers from 1952-69 and had his No. 3 retired by the team.“One of the most iconic players in franchise history, Harry’s Hall of Fame accomplishments on the ice were exceeded only by the tremendous gentleman he was off the ice,” Rangers President Glen Sather said in a statement. “I was privileged to have worked with Harry for over a decade in both Edmonton and New York and treasure our memories together.”Howell also played in the NHL for the Oakland/California Golden Seals and Los Angeles before finishing in the World Hockey Association with single seasons with New York/New Jersey Vegas Golden Knights Hoodies Authentic , San Diego and Calgary.Known for his smart, steady play, “Harry the Horse” won the Norris Trophy as the league’s top defenseman in 1966-67.

He had seven goals and 36 assists in 170 games in the WHA.Howell was a player-coach with New York-New Jersey and San Diego in the WHA and had an 11-game stint behind the bench in the NHL with the Minnesota North Stars. He also scouted for Edmonton.“The National Hockey League mourns the passing of legendary defenseman, consummate professional, and Hockey Hall of Famer Harry Howell,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement.Howell helped the Guelph Biltmores wins the 1952 Memorial Cup junior championship.The NHL said Howell’s wife, Marilyn, died last month.
GLENDALE www.officialcapitals.com , Ariz. (AP) — Brad Richardson didn’t take his normal pregame nap Thursday — and he might consider passing up the extra shut-eye moving forward.Richardson scored four goals to lead Arizona to a 5-2 victory over the Vancouver, when the Coyotes won their fifth straight while completing a four-game season sweep of the Canucks, further tightening the Western Conference playoff race.“I was (angry) when I got here because I hadn’t napped, but maybe I’ll keep that trend going,” Richardson said. “I got punched in the face the last game and I can’t breathe out of my nose, so I think it was something with that.”Richardson scored twice in the first period, recorded his hat trick in the second period and finished the scoring late in the third after the Canucks closed to 4-2.Vinnie Hinostroza and Richard Panik had three assists apiece — all on goals by Richardson — and Oliver Ekman-Larsson had two assists.Richardson has a single-season career-high 16 goals.“He had a great game,” Arizona coach Rick Tocchet said. “Since I took the job here, he’s been probably the guy I can rely on, on and off the ice.

He had 14 goals with Colorado in 2006-07, his first full season and had 12 goals in 47 games with the Coyotes last season.“It’s a long time coming in between,” Richardson said. “You want to score. It was just one of those nights where I felt we had the puck all the time and our line was kind of clicking and we were in the right spot at the right time.“They made some great plays for me.”Tanner Pearson and Antoine Roussel scored for the Canucks Washington Capitals T-Shirts Authentic , who have lost five of six.Pearson’s goal was 10th this season, and his first for the Canucks since being acquired in from Los Angeles on Feb. 14.Arizona’s Darcy Kuemper made 37 saves while starting for the 10th time in the last 11 games.

He tipped in a pass from Hinostroza for his final goal at 8:03 of the third period.“I thought we showed a little immaturity in our game tonight,” Vancouver coach Travis Green said. “We weren’t smart enough with our effort and gave them a couple of goals that you can’t give up at this time of the year.”STEPAN INJUREDCoyotes forward Derek Stepan was helped off the ice with an apparent left leg injury at 17:29 of the third period after colliding with a Vancouver player. He will be re-evaluated Friday, Tocchet said.“We’ve been trying to stay positive all year,” Tocchet said. “Hopefully (we’ll) get some good news. We can’t really speculate. We’ll know a little more tomorrow. We’ll deal with it tomorrow.”Stepan is third on the team with 13 goals and also is considered one of the team leaders.NOTES: Forward Conor Garland played his first game since signing a two-year, $1.55 million contract extension Wednesday that will keep him with the Coyotes through the 2020-21 season. Garland has 12 goals and three assists in 37 games. … The Canucks completed the eighth of their 11 back-to-back sets this season.

I’m embarrassed and disappointed by my actions. It was clearly not my finest moment and I’m sorry.”Mickelson was struggling in the third round when he reached the 13th green. His bogey putt from above the hole ran by the cup and was headed down a slope when he trotted over and swatted it back toward the hole with the ball still in motion.

WASHINGTON — The Washington Capitals open a five-game homestand Saturday night when they host the Dallas Stars at Capital One Arena.The Capitals (5-4-2) began a stretch of 15 games in 30 days with a 6-4 loss on Thursday night in Montreal Custom Ottawa Senators Jerseys , capping a 2-2 road trip.Dallas (7-5-0) is 2-1 on its six-game road trip after a 2-1 win on Thursday night in Toronto and is 4-1 in its last five games.Article continues below ...Anton Khudobin made 30 saves in his first start since Oct. 16, Jamie Benn and Devin Shore scored, and Tyler Seguin had two assists for the Stars.Shore has goals in back-to-back games and points in five of his last six games (2-6-8).“He’s just a smart hockey player,” Dallas coach Jim Montgomery told NHL.com. “I like the way he possesses pucks and the poise he has with the puck. He’s starting to get a lot of confidence and with that he’s skating harder and winning more one-on-one battles. He’s a guy that I’m going to continue to move around because I think he can get other players going.”After playing on the fourth earlier in the week against Montreal — and getting a goal and two assists — Shore played on the wing with Seguin and Mattias Janmar against Toronto.“He’s fun to play with,” Seguin said. “He’s making a lot of things happen. If it wasn’t for him in Montreal, we don’t win that game. He’s really coming into his own and maturing and playing good hockey.”On Friday, the Starts announced that defenseman Dillon Heatherington, 23 www.officialflyersproshop.com , would be recalled from the Texas Stars with Connor Carrick heading to injured reserve. Carrick did not play against Toronto after blocking a shot in the team’s loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday afternoon.The Capitals appeared to have fashioned a great ending to their road trip before the Canadiens scored three goals in the final 3:04 Thursday night.“Obviously it’s frustrating in the situation,” goalie Braden Holtby told NHL.com. “I think we had a chance to steal one there and just came up short. Luck seemed to be on our side for most of the third, and then it turned. We didn’t do enough to push the other way.”Alex Ovechkin and Lars Eller each scored twice, and Holtby made 38 saves for the Capitals. It was Ovechkin’s first two-goal game of the season.Washington will be without 38-year-old defenseman Brooks Orpik against Dallas. He’ll miss his second straight game Saturday night because of an undisclosed lower-body injury.Christian Djoos, 24, and Madison Bowey, 23, formed the team’s third defensive pairing against Montreal.“I thought they did some good things Philadelphia Flyers T-Shirts Authentic ,” Capitals coach Todd Reirden told the Washington Post. “I think Madison in particular was able to show us his skating. I thought he made some plays offensively, just a couple chances against for them. But for the most part, they limited it.”Holtby is 2-4 with a 4.06 goals-against average and .865 save percentage against Dallas. Ben Bishop of the Stars is 2-6-2 with a 3.46 GAA and an .888 save percentage against Washington.The Stars went 0-1-1 against the Capitals last season but have won six of their last seven games in Washington. The NHL announcedonFridaythe final four players to be selected for the 2019 NHL All-Star Game.Colorado Avalanche forward Gabriel Landeskog, Buffalo Sabres forward Jeff Skinner, Edmonton Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl and Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang were all voted in by the fans.The initial rosters were revealed on Jan. 3, but a final vote was held to add one player to each team.The 2019 NHL All-Star Game will include four teams, with each representing a division. The teams will compete in a tournament featuring three-on-three play to highlight the skill of those involved.Landeskog, 26 Philadelphia Flyers Hoodies Authentic , will make his first All-Star Game appearance in his eighth NHL season.The Avalanche captain is enjoying a career year, with 27 goals and 24 assists for 51 points through 44 games. He will be joined on the Central team by Avs teammates Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen.Skinner was chosen for the Atlantic team amid a red-hot start that has seen him record 29 goals and 13 assists for 42 points in 43 games.He is tied with Toronto Maple Leafs center John Tavares for second in the NHL in goals behind only the 32 scored by Washington Capitals winger Alex Ovechkin.Skinner is now a two-time All-Star, and he will skate alongside Sabres teammate Jack Eichel.Draisaitl has 23 goals and 31 assists for 54 points through 44 games, making him the choice for the Pacific team.The 23-year-old native of Germany will make his All-Star Game debut and join forces with Oilers teammate Connor McDavid.Letang rounds out the field with his fifth All-Star nod at the age of 31.He has been one of the NHL's top offensive defensemen this season, with 10 goals and 27 assists for 37 points in 41 games.Letang is the second Penguins player to be chosen for the Metropolitan team along with center Sidney Crosby.The 2019 NHL All-Star Game will take place at the SAP Center in San Jose, California, on Jan. 26.
LAS VEGAS (AP) The Washington Capitals will play for a Stanley Cup championship Thursday night for the first time in 43 NHL seasons. Alex Ovechkin is one win away from carving his name into history at the peak of his incredible hockey career.With a 3-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Final and a city thousands of miles away thirsting for its first championship in a generation Josh Morrissey Jersey , the Vegas stakes are awfully high for the Caps in Game 5.Ovi still wants his teammates thinking about the Golden Knights, not that silver trophy.”To be honest, I think most of us have never been in this position,” said Ovechkin, who could become the first Russian captain to raise the Cup. ”For me personally, I don’t try to think about it too much what’s going on and just try focusing on different things. But it’s hard.”Exactly what could distract an athlete of Ovechkin’s magnitude from the imminent chance to validate his place in his sport?”Whatever. Cars. Hotels. You know, Vegas.”Indeed, this desert is a strange place to end a drought. But with three chances to get one win, Ovechkin and his teammates want to seize their very first opportunity for the clincher on the Las Vegas ice.With one more victory, Ovechkin would finally have team success to complement his formidable individual accomplishments. The vaunted goal-scorer can also succeed where a generation of Washington athletes have fallen short by leading the Capitals to their first title and the city’s first major pro sports championship in a quarter-century.With his 33rd birthday looming in the fall, Ovechkin understands the opportunity before him and the magnitude of the situation for everyone who has ever worn the Capitals’ jersey.It’s enough to tighten anybody’s grip on the stick, but the Caps didn’t appear overly tight during their workout or in the dressing room afterward.”It’s a great time,” Ovechkin said Wednesday. ”Probably the best time in my life, hockey-wise. We just enjoy it together, this moment. It’s fun.”Even with a commanding series lead, the Caps all spoke of the importance of consistency and seizing the moment after their light workout. Washington has a shockingly lengthy franchise history of playoff collapses http://www.officialhockeyjetsshop.com/authentic-adidas-kyle-connor-jersey , but these Caps promptly won all three potential closeout games in their first three playoff series this spring.”Maybe because we’ve talked about it so much,” Caps defenseman John Carlson said. ”Guys are sick of hearing about it from the meetings. Sick of not getting it done. They all kind of blend together, but I think we have come out with great efforts every closing-out game, and we’re going to need a big one. This is a good team at home. It’s going to take a really good effort to get it done.”The Caps don’t have the luxury of thinking about the minor disappointment of not being at home to secure Washington’s first championship in a major pro sport since the Redskins’ Super Bowl victory in January 1992. Back home in D.C., fans will be cheering on their team at Capital One Arena in a watch party that sold out in about 20 minutes.”I think the history of the organization is definitely an important thing, but we’re focused on this group,” Washington’s Tom Wilson said. ”We’re focused on this year, and obviously once all is said and done or whatever happens, you can look back on it. We want to do it for the city. We want to do it for ourselves.”So far in this series, the Caps have done just about everything well. Washington has scored 16 goals in four games against the reeling Golden Knights, whose charmed expansion season has run short of magic in three consecutive losses.While the Caps focused on changing nothing from their last three efforts, the Golden Knights also don’t believe they need a wholesale change. Coach Gerard Gallant’s team is banking on the resilience of a group that hasn’t lost four consecutive games at any point in their utterly charmed inaugural season.”It’s not the first adversity we’ve faced this year,” forward Jonathan Marchessault said. ”You’d rather have the odds in your favor, but I’m thinking about (Game 5). If you start thinking that we have to win three games, sometimes it gets demoralizing. We’re just focused on the next one. … They’re in a better situation than us, that’s for sure. Stuff we’ve done this year has never been done Mark Scheifele Jersey , so I think that’s what we’re thinking about.”—More Stanley Cup coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/StanleyCupFinals BOSTON (AP) — Patrice Bergeron missed the entire exhibition season and most of training camp recovering from back spasms that followed offseason groin surgery.It doesn’t seem to have slowed him down.The Bruins forward had his fourth career hat trick, scoring his first goal just 30 seconds into the game, and Tuukka Rask stopped 28 shots for his first win of the season to help Boston beat the Ottawa Senators 6-3 in its home opener on Monday.Two games after the Bruins lost the season opener to the Stanley Cup champion Capitals 7-0, allowing a goal just 24 seconds in, Bergeron opened their home season in similar fashion.“He’s impressive. He’s a competitor,” said linemate Brad Marchand, who had three assists for a league-leading seven through just three games this season. “He wants to be the best player on the ice every night.”Bergeron also had an assist, David Pastrnak had two goals and two assists and defenseman Charlie McAvoy had his first career three-assist game for Boston. Chris Wagner also scored for the Bruins, who beat Ottawa for the fifth straight time and won their second straight this year since losing to the Capitals the night they raised their championship banner.Mike Condon made 24 saves and Ryan Dzingel scored twice for the Senators, who picked up a 5-on-3 power play with about 12 minutes left but failed to score.“Those are momentum builders,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. “That makes a difference, if they get a goal get back into it.”The 2014 Vezina Trophy winner, Rask was pulled from the opener against Washington after allowing five goals on 19 shots in less than 28 minutes. Backup Jaroslav Halak replaced him and also started the second game, a 4-0 win over Buffalo on Thursday.“Well, I finished the game,” Rask said with a smirk. “I guess that qualifies as a lot better.”Rask was spotted a 2-0 lead in Monday’s matinee Mathieu Perreault Jersey , thanks to Bergeron’s goal off a rebound in the crease in the first minute. The Bruins forward also scored on a power play from the right faceoff circle with three minutes left in the first.“You’re trying to have a good, strong start,” Bergeron said. “It’s not always going to be a goal.”It was 3-2 after two periods when Bergeron scored off Ottawa defenseman Cody Ceci’s knee 4:38 into the third, sending a shower of caps onto the ice. Pastrnak made it 5-2 with 3½ minutes left, but Bobby Ryan cut the deficit back to two goals just 30 seconds later.Pastrnak added an empty-netter from mid-ice.Boston fans broke into a couple of “Yankees Suck!” chants in the third period, a few hours before the Red Sox played New York in Game 3 of the AL Division Series.“I agree with that chant, by the way. I’m all for it. I’m excited for the Red Sox,” Cassidy said. “Let’s face it, when you have four teams that are in the mix — (it would) suck to be like Cleveland. Although they’re turning the corner, I shouldn’t say that. They’ve got a quarterback now, but I think we’re spoiled here.”NOTES: The Bruins had lost six straight to Ottawa before sweeping the Senators last season 4-0-0. … Ottawa did not have a captain in uniform with the offseason trade of Erik Karlsson to San Jose. Matt Duchene, Mark Stone and Zack Smith served as alternates.UP NEXTSenators: Host Flyers on Wednesday night.Bruins: Host Edmonton on Thursday night.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — between the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates Brian Goodwin Jersey , The Associated Press reported erroneously that the Cubs matched San Francisco in 1969 and the Philadelphia Athletics in 1942 by turning seven double plays in a nine-inning game. The Cubs matched Houston’s defense in 1969 and the New York Yankees in 1942.A corrected version of the story is below:Turn! Turn! Turn! Cubs match double-play record vs BucsThe Chicago Cubs tied a major league record by turning seven double plays, including a game-ending effort by rookie third baseman David Bote on a grounder by David Freese to finish off a 1-0 win over the Pittsburgh PiratesBy JOHN PERROTTOAssociated PressPITTSBURGH (AP) — Cubs starter Cole Hamels didn’t have his best stuff Friday night. Luckily, he had a few buddies on hand to help him out.“The double play is a pitcher’s best friend,” he said with a smile.A friend in need, indeed.Chicago tied a major league record by turning seven double plays, including a game-ending effort by rookie third baseman David Bote on a grounder by David Freese to finish off a 1-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.The Cubs got six double plays on grounders — five with Hamels pitching — and one on a line drive. The Elias Sports Bureau said the Cubs became the third team in big league history to turn seven DPs in a nine-inning game. It was previously done by Houston’s defense in 1969 (against San Francisco) and the New York Yankees in 1942 (against the Philadelphia Athletics).“Crazy,” Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist said. “A lot of it is the pitcher doing a great job of getting groundballs and little of it is luck with (the hitters) rolling over on some pitches. It’s also good quality defense and good focus throughout the game.”Pittsburgh had runners on first and second in the ninth before Jesse Chavez got Freese to ground to Bote. Having hit a game-ending grand slam last Sunday night to beat Washington 4-3, Bote again was in the right place to cap off a win. He stepped on third and threw to first to end it.“We were in a good spot all the time,” Chicago manager Joe Maddon said. “We made some really good plays and absolutely turned the ones we were supposed to turn. We never gave them extra outs, so that was the pertinent part.”Hamels (8-9) pitched seven solid innings. Kyle Schwarber hit a home run in the second off Trevor Williams (10-9). Chavez got his second save as the Pirates lost their fifth in a row.“(The infielders) were great with how they stayed with it and pulled them off, especially to end innings in a tight game when you can’t afford one mistake http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-adams-jersey ,” Hamels said. “It was outstanding to see. There are always going to be days where you not sharp, but it’s nine guys trying to win a game.”Freese also hit into the first double play in the first inning. Third baseman Javier Baez fielded his grounder, stepped on the bag and threw to first baseman Anthony Rizzo to end the inning.In the second, Josh Bell hit into an around-the-horn DP, Baez to Zobrist to Rizzo.Corey Dickerson ended the third inning by grounding to Zobrist, who threw to shortstop Addison Russell at second. Russell’s relay to first was in time to get Dickerson.Gregory Polanco hit into a 4-6-3 double play in the sixth. An inning later, Bell grounded into a 6-4-3, the last of five DPs turned behind Hamels.Chicago had a disputed double play to end the eighth. With one out and Jorge De La Rosa pitching, pinch-hitter Adam Frazier lined to Zobrist, who threw to first to double up pinch-runner Kevin Newman. The Pirates challenged the call, but the play stood following a video review.The Pirates put runners on first and second with one out in the ninth Brandon Kintzler Jersey , but Chavez induced Freeze to hit into the final double play.“Got them a lot of different ways,” Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said of the double plays. “There were some balls that were struck really hard. Down in the zone, we would clip the top of them. Handful of other balls hit hard and lined out. So, we couldn’t find dirt, grass. They made plays and got good defense. They’ve had a good defense all year in the infield. Just goes to show you the benefit of a well-executed pitch in a certain situation.”Hamels allowed five hits, struck out three and walked two as he improved to 3-0 with a 0.72 ERA in four starts since being acquired from the Texas Rangers in a trade.Schwarber hit a drive down the right-field line in the second inning for his 21st home run, sending the NL Central-leading Cubs to their third straight win and increasing their lead to four games over Milwaukee.The Cubs beat the Pirates by a 1-0 score for the second straight game. On Thursday night, Ian Happ’s homer accounted for the only run.Williams gave up four hits in seven innings. He has surrendered just three runs in 36 innings over his last six starts.The start of the game was delayed 1 hour, 47 minutes by rain.TRAINER’S ROOMCubs: LHP Mike Montgomery (left shoulder inflammation) was placed on the 10-day DL and RHP Tyler Chatwood will move from the bullpen to start in his place Saturday night. LHP Randy Rosario was recalled from Triple-A Iowa to take Montgomery’s roster spot. … RHP Yu Darvish (right triceps tendinitis/right shoulder impingement) will make a rehab start Sunday for Class A South Bend. He last pitched for Chicago on May 20. … 3B Kris Bryant (left shoulder inflammation) has started soft tosses but there is no timetable for his return.Pirates: RHP Chad Kuhl (right forearm strain) played catch for the first time since being injured June 26 in a start against the Mets at New York.UP NEXTCubs: Chatwood (4-5, 5.06 ERA) made 19 starts before being shifted to relief in early August. He has issued a major league-high 90 walks in 99 2/3 innings.Pirates: RHP Joe Musgrove (4-7, 3.49) is 3-1 with a 2.33 ERA in four starts since the All-Star break. A look at what’s happening around the majors today:M-V-P! M-V-P!Christian Yelich has picked up right where he left off last season. The 2018 NL MVP hit his fourth homer Sunday and then a two-run double in the ninth inning that gave Milwaukee a dramatic 5-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. He has homered in the first four games of the season to match a major league record and can break the mark by going deep when the Brewers visit Cincinnati.“What we’re witnessing is greatness Tanner Roark Jersey ,” teammate Ryan Braun said. “I’ve never seen anyone this good at baseball for this long.”Yelich batted .326 with 36 homers and 110 RBIs last year, leading Milwaukee to the NL Central title. He is 6 for 12 with six walks and eight RBIs already this season.“Candidly, I can’t recall a series like that,” Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said. “I’ve had some guys that are smoking hot against us, but I’ve never seen that kind of damage over four days.”WELCOME HOMEThe Indians, Pirates and Braves are set to play their home openers. Cleveland right-hander Mike Clevinger gets the ball following a breakout 2018 season. He’ll face Ivan Nova, making his first start for the Chicago White Sox after an offseason trade from Pittsburgh. The Pirates will start Chris Archer against St. Louis’ Adam Wainwright, and Atlanta (0-3) is calling on Sean Newcomb against Kyle Hendricks and the Chicago Cubs.MONEY FOR NOTHINGTwo of baseball’s biggest spenders are off to slow starts. Heading into the first full week of the season, the Yankees (1-2) and World Series champion Red Sox (1-3) are at the bottom of the AL East standings after both teams won 100 games last year. New York dropped two of three at home to a Baltimore team that went a major league-worst 47-115 last season. Next up, the Yankees welcome another rebuilding club to the Bronx in the Detroit Tigers. After losing three of four at Seattle, the Red Sox send October star David Price to the mound in Oakland for his first start of the season.LONG ROAD BACKDrew Smyly is set to make his Texas debut and his first major league start since September 2016 when the Rangers host Jose Altuve and the Houston Astros. Smyly Khris Davis Jersey , acquired from the Chicago Cubs in November, had Tommy John surgery in July 2017. The 29-year-old lefty is 31-27 with a 3.74 ERA in five big league seasons with Detroit and Tampa Bay.KING OF THE CASTLEFor years, Felix Hernandez was a shutdown ace for Seattle, and the Mariners couldn’t score enough runs to back him. Times have changed. After being passed over for opening day for the first time in a decade, the 32-year-old Hernandez will make his first start this season against the Angels. King Felix had a 15.95 ERA in spring training a year after going 8-14 with a 5.55 ERA during a miserable regular season. The good news? With the way Seattle is swinging the bats, he might not need to be great. The Mariners took three of four from Boston last weekend, averaging 8.5 runs per game. They’ve hit 15 homers, at least one in every game during a 5-1 start.
acks head into this offseason with the intention of listening to offers for any and all players on their roster Bryce Harper Jersey , including first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and pitcher Zack Greinke, according to Jon Heyman of Fancred.Goldschmidt has just one year remaining on his current contractafter the club picked up his option last month and is owed $14.5 million in 2019. Meanwhile, Greinke still has three years left on the six-year, $206.5 million megadeal he signed in 2015.Heyman notes that a rival believes the chances of a Goldschmidt deal are "remote." On the other hand, a Greinke trade may be a possibility if the Diamondbacks are willing to pay down some of his remaining contract. The 35-year-old is owed $31.5 million next season and $32 million in each 2020 and 2021, perSpotrac.Goldschmidt, 31, is coming off another strong season Stephen Strasburg Jersey , hitting .290/.389/.533 with 33 home runs, 35 doubles, five triples and 83 RBI. The veteran first baseman has earned six consecutive All-Star selections and has won won three Gold Gloves and three Silver Sluggers. Not only that, but he has finished top-three in National League MVP voting three times since 2013.Greinke had another quality season as well. The right-hander went 15-11 with a 3.21 ERA and a 1.079 WHIP in 33 starts, striking out 199 batters in 207.2 innings. He is 45-25 with a 3.53 ERA in three seasons with Arizona.Despite having two of the best players at their respective positions on the roster, the Diamondbacks have not had the sort of success they had hoped for after giving Greinke a nine-figure megadeal. After winning just 69 games during Greinke's first season in the desert, they responded by winning 93 games as well as the NL Wild Card Game last year, ultimately losing to NL West rival Los Angeles Dodgers.Arizona was 71-56 http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-adams-jersey , a season-best 15 games over .500, on Aug. 22 but went just 11-24 down the stretch to fall out of contention and finish the year at 82-80.Now, the Diamondbacks face a critical time for the organization's future. They will explore the trade market to see what is out there, but unless they get an offer too good to refuse, they do nothaveto deal either Goldschmidt or Greinke. ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Nelson Cruz has enjoyed plenty of success over the years against the Los Angeles Angels.This season has been the best yet.The veteran slugger hit a three-run homer, Mike Leake pitched seven strong innings and the Seattle Mariners started a 10-game road trip with an 8-2 victory over the Angels on Thursday night.Cruz’s shot to center field off Neal Ramirez in the fourth was his eighth homer this season versus the Angels, the most by one player in a single year against the franchise Anthony Rendon Jersey , according to Baseball-Reference.“That ball was in the air forever,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said. “Nelson has always swung the bat good against them, for whatever reason. He sees the ball good in this ballpark. There’s really no ballpark that can hold him, but he sees real good pitches here.”The home run was also Cruz’s 50th against the Angels, which gave him the second-most for any player against the team. Alex Rodriguez hit 70.“I play a lot against them,” Cruz said. “So maybe that’s why.”Cruz, Mitch Haniger, Robinson Cano and Kyle Seager each had two of Seattle’s 12 hits.Los Angeles was eliminated from playoff contention.Leake (10-9) threw a season-high 114 pitches (80 strikes) Daniel Murphy Jersey , allowing one run and four hits with a walk and five strikeouts. His only costly mistake came in the seventh when Justin Upton homered to left.After going 0-5 in July and August, Leake has won two straight starts for the first time since June 12. It was also the ninth time in 29 starts this season that the right-hander has gone seven innings or more.“It’s kind of nice to see. I had to work to get down in the zone a little bit more,” Leake said.Angels starter Odrisamer Despaigne (0-3) went only one-plus inning, allowing three runs and four hits while facing eight batters. He promptly gave up two runs in the first as the first three batters reached base. Haniger led off the game with a double and was driven in two batters later when Cano singled. A sacrifice fly by Ryon Healy scored Denard Span.“When you have a negative ball-strike ratio, you know things aren’t going your way,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.Haniger’s sacrifice fly with the bases loaded in the second scored Ben Gamel and extended the lead to 3-0.The Mariners added two runs in the ninth. Seager’s single scored Cano, and Cruz came home on a bases-loaded walk.Upton had two hits and Mike Trout added a pair of doubles for the Angels.Los Angeles got a run in the ninth when Trout scored on Jose Fernandez’s fielder’s choice with the bases loaded.ANOTHER MILESTONETrout became the fifth player in major league history and the second in the American League with seven seasons of 60 extra-base hits or more by his age 26 season. He joined Rodriguez, Orlando Cepeda http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-adams-jersey , Frank Robinson and Mel Ott. Trout is batting .375 (18 for 48) over his last 15 games with three home runs and eight RBIs.BULLPEN GAMESIt was the second time in three games that the Angels essentially resorted to a bullpen game. Tuesday’s was planned as eight pitchers combined on a two-hitter to beat Texas 1-0. Scioscia said Thursday that it’s likely he will have to go with another bullpen game next week.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: SS Jean Segura missed his third straight game with a flu-like illness, according to Servais. Segura did take part in batting practice and could return to the lineup sometime this weekend. Left fielder Cameron Maybin was also out of the lineup for the second straight day due to illness.Angels: Tyler Skaggs threw a 48-pitch simulated game in Arizona. The left-hander has been on the disabled list since Aug. 12 due to a groin strain. Scioscia said Skaggs will return to Anaheim to determine his next step.UP NEXTMariners: With lefty James Paxton scratched due to pneumonia, Seattle had not announced a starter for Friday. Servais said it will be a bullpen game.Angels: Matt Shoemaker (2-0, 3.45 ERA) will make his first start at home since June 14, 2017. The right-hander has missed most of the season after injuring his right forearm on March 31 against Oakland.
SCOTTSDALE http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-moore-jersey , Ariz. (AP) — irst major league camp, especially when the San Francisco Giants catcher sends a misguided pitch soaring over the centerfield fence.The same with White Sox shortstop Nick Madrigal every time he makes a spinning stab deep in the hole, or Tigers pitcher Casey Mize when he leaves an unsuspecting batter befuddled, or the four young arms the Royals selected among the first 40 picks of last year’s amateur draft.All have a couple things in common: They played college baseball rather than turning pro out of high school, and they are all expected to help their clubs sooner than later.Whether it’s the beginning of a trend toward selecting less risky, more advanced college prospects over raw, high-ceiling high school stars remains to be seen. But there are undeniable benefits to stocking a farm system with college players as opposed to an 18-year-old fresh off the prom, including the chance to provide more immediate help — not unlike what is expected of NBA and NFL picks.“Yeah, that’s all high school players versus college players. The risk is lower,” explained J.J. Piccolo, the Royals’ assistant general manager in charge of scouting and player development.“Some would make the case the reward is greater with a toolsy high school player,” Picollo said, “but that’s a case-by-case basis. You have a track record, three years playing against college competition. They’re playing against more advanced players Prince Fielder Jersey , and the predictiveness of what they may do falls in line a little better. You know what to expect.”None of which is necessarily new. Baseball scouts have been mining the college and prep ranks with equal fervor for years, and the maturity gap — physically and mentally — has always existed.Some things have changed, though.Some baseball officials believe kids chosen right out of high school are more inclined to pass up a modest signing bonus in favor of a few years in college these days, gaining not only an education and experience but also the opportunity to be drafted higher down the road.Others believe patience has grown short in this modern, fast-paced world. Investing five years developing a first-round pick out of high school is no longer as palatable for ownership and fans alike. They’d rather see their first-round picks slipping on a big league jersey and playing in front of thousands of fans than toiling away in some baseball backwater.“Everybody develops at their own pace. It’s hard to put a date on when that’s going to be,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “We didn’t know when (Alcides) Escobar or Salvador Perez were going to develop and become All-Stars. We just knew they would. I wanted to take Salvy out of A-ball, because I knew he was going to be a great player. I wanted to get him going in the big leagues.”Perhaps as a result, the first five picks of last year’s first-year player draft came from out of the college ranks. There were only 10 college kids picked in the first round in 2016, but there were 15 the following year and 13 first-round selections last summer.One of them is Madrigal, the pint-sized second baseman picked fourth overall by the White Sox out of Oregon State. He rocketed through three minor league levels last summer and wowed scouts in big league camp before getting assigned to the minor league camp this week.Even though that’s where he will begin the season, Madrigal may not be there long.“They drafted me for a reason,” he said. “I’m going to show up every day and give everything I can to this organization. When you’re wearing this uniform, you can’t take that lightly.”So far, two selections from the 2014 draft have developed into All-Stars: Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola and Mets outfielder Michael Conforto Adrian Beltre Jersey , both chosen out of college.The only All-Star from the 2015 draft is Astros shortstop Alex Bregman, a product of LSU.Bart, the No. 2 overall pick out of Georgia Tech last year, joined the Giants in big league camp th and has been pounding Cactus League pitching. Mize, the Auburn hurler picked first overall by Detroit, left manager Ron Gardenhire gushing when he was reassigned to minor league camp.“The ball, he can make it do a lot of things,” Gardenhire said. “Some guys you would say when you go down there, ‘Don’t big league it,’ you know, the whole package. You don’t have to say that to that guy. He’s going to work. He’ll get after it. He’ll get it done.”In other words, Mize is mature enough to handle pro ball after his time in the SEC.The same with the quartet of pitchers the Royals selected among the first 40 picks in last year’s draft. Brady Singer and Jackson Kowar pitched in the College World Series for Florida, Daniel Lynch was the star of Virginia’s rotation, and Kris Bubic dazzled during his Stanford career.Now Nolan Ryan Jersey , even though all four are likely to begin this season at Class A Lexington, there is a good chance they will reach Triple-A Omaha later in the year — one step from the big leagues.“We know their maturity level is good enough to deal with adversity,” Picollo said. “If they’re performing well, you’re not as reluctant to move them quickly. But we also don’t want to set a timeline for them to meet. The most important thing is they’re prepared to pitch in the big leagues — and pitch well — whenever they get here.” CHICAGO (AP) — A little rain cut short Michael Kopech’s anticipated big league debut Tuesday night. Couldn’t damper his spirits, though.Eddie Rosario led the Minnesota Twins to a 5-2 victory, but not before Kopech pitched two scoreless innings in a rain-shortened start and gave Chicago a glimpse of a potentially promising future.“It was a dream come true,” Kopech said. “It was everything I thought about since I was a little kid. I was pumped.”The game was tied at 2 before Minnesota pushed across three runs in the ninth. Jake Cave was thrown out when he tried to score from second on Mitch Garver’s pinch-hit single, but Dylan Covey (4-11) issued an intentional walk to Joe Mauer before Rosario greeted Jace Fry with a tiebreaking RBI single into center field.Jorge Polanco tacked on a two-run single as Minnesota won for the sixth time in eight games. Trevor May (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the victory, and Taylor Rogers got three outs for his second save.The 22-year-old Kopech, one of baseball’s top pitching prospects, struck out four of the 10 batters he faced before a 52-minute rain delay. Luis Avilan came in for the White Sox when the game resumed.“I’m a little bummed out,” Kopech said. “I wanted to go a little deeper in the game. I didn’t realize my pitch count (52) was as high as it was.”Kopech figures to have plenty of chances in the future.“It wasn’t a tough decision. You worry more about the individual and the length of his career,” said bench coach Joe McEwing, who filled in for manager Rick Renteria the second straight night. “It was nothing but positives for Michael Kopech tonight.”Leaning heavily on his blazing fastball Rougned Odor Jersey , Kopech allowed three hits, hit a batter and walked none. The right-hander was acquired in the December 2016 trade that sent ace left-hander Chris Sale to the Boston Red Sox, and the White Sox are counting on him to be a prominent figure in their rebuilding project.Nicky Delmonico and Yoan Moncada homered for Chicago.Minnesota grabbed a 2-1 lead in the fourth. Logan Forsythe and Jake Cave singled off Avilan with one out. After Robbie Grossman’s RBI single against Jeanmar Gomez, Cave scored during a rundown on which Grossman was tagged out on a steal attempt.Moncada tied it at 2 with a solo drive off Gabriel Moya in the seventh.Twins right-hander Jose Berrios allowed one run and four hits in five innings. He is winless in his last three starts.“There was a lot of energy here,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said. “The Sox fans are very well aware of (Kopech) and the future. I thought he handled it pretty well.”MORE TESTS FOR RENTERIARenteria will return to Chicago on Wednesday and undergo further testing, according to the team. The 56-year-old Renteria experienced lightheadedness and was hospitalized before Monday night’s 8-5 victory over the Twins in Minnesota.“He sounds good,” said McEwing, who spoke with Renteria before Tuesday’s game. “He’s a very tough individual.”AUSTIN IS SORRYTwins first baseman Tyler Austin apologized for his father’s recent “embarrassing” tweets criticizing New York Yankees first baseman Greg Bird. The Yankees opted to keep Bird instead of Austin, who was traded for pitcher Lance Lynn on July 30.TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: RHP Ervin Santana (sore right middle finger) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, but Molitor said “it’s becoming less likely he’s going to play the rest of the season.” The organization has a $1 million buyout option on his $14 million contract for next season.White Sox: INF Jose Abreu underwent outpatient surgery on his lower abdomen after complaining of discomfort upon his arrival to the ballpark. He could resume baseball-related activities in two weeks. … OF Leury Garcia will be sidelined for three to six weeks after an MRI showed a Grade 2 strain of his left hamstring. OF Ryan LaMarre was recalled from Charlotte and RHP Tyler Danish was sent to the Triple-A club.UP NEXTTwins: RHP Kyle Gibson (7-9, 3.51 ERA) will take a career 6-3 record and 2.77 ERA against the White Sox into Wednesday’s game.White Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon has been on a roll of late – 3-0 record, 1.41 ERA and .148 opponent batting average over his last six starts.
eir home stadium Monday night for a reboot of ”Mannywood http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-j.j.-hardy-jersey ,” and then the Milwaukee Brewers stepped in to spoil the party.Eric Thames hit a three-run home run and Christian Yelich extended his hitting streak to 14 games as the Milwaukee Brewers overcame a brief power outage delay and beat Los Angeles 5-2.Manny Machado homered in the ninth inning in his first home game with the Dodgers, going 1 for 3 with two walks. He delivered his 26th home run of the season to center field off Brewers reliever Corey Knebel. He also struck out in the fourth inning with two runners in scoring position.”It wasn’t a good situation,” Machado said, when asked about the home run. ”I should have hit that a couple of innings before. … It was a little late for that one. We’re here to win games and when you come out with a loss like that, it’s not fun.”There was an intensity among the crowd 44,933 that was reminiscent of 2008 when the Dodgers acquired Manny Ramirez for the stretch drive. Ramirez did his part that year by crushing 17 home runs over the season’s final two months, helping push the Dodgers into the National League Championship Series.On Monday, a group of 12 fans in left-center field all wore a blue T-shirt with a single white character, spelling out ”MANNYWOOD 2.0” when they stood shoulder-to-shoulder.”That was pretty cool, I’m not going to lie,” Machado said.However Caleb Joseph Jersey , the night belonged to the Brewers, who grabbed the momentum quickly, before a power outage caused a 23-minute delay between the first and second innings. The Dodgers said the outage was due to ”a disruption in the city’s power feed to the facility.”The Brewers had a 1-0 lead at the time of the delay. Milwaukee loaded the bases three batters into the game – started by a leadoff double by Yelich that extended his streak – against Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda before getting an RBI single from Travis Shaw. Maeda prevented more damage by getting a strikeout, popup and fly ball to end the threat.Thames capped a two-out rally in the third inning with his 14th home run of the season. Shaw, who had three hits, worked a two-out walk before Ryan Braun singled. Thames then drilled a 0-1 pitch off Maeda into the bleachers in left-center to make it 3-0.”It felt good to get the hit to give us some distance from the Dodgers because the way they line up,” Thames said. ”This is a huge series. … This might be a postseason matchup, you never know. It’s a playoff preview for us.”Josh Hader (4-0) had three strikeouts over two scoreless innings of relief as the Brewers won for the seventh time in 10 games to follow a seven-game losing streak that ended July 21.”That’s just a tough baseball game,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. ”It’s a good team over there and we outlasted them pitching and did a nice job.”Maeda (7-6) lasted just 4 2/3 innings, throwing 102 pitches. He gave up four runs and seven hits with four strikeouts and three walks.Brewers starter Freddy Peralta went four innings, giving up one run and three hits with four walks and six strikeouts. He threw 98 pitches.Joakim Soria pitched a scoreless seventh inning in his second appearance with Milwaukee after being acquired last week in a trade from the Chicago White Sox.The Dodgers have lost consecutive games after starting the second half with six wins in nine games. They have just seven hits in their last two games after they nearly were no-hit at Atlanta on Sunday by Sean Newcomb.TRAINER’S ROOMBrewers: RHP Jimmy Nelson and C Stephen Vogt Roberto Alomar Jersey , both on the 60-day disabled list following shoulder surgery, were with the team in Los Angeles to get further examinations as they each continue their road to recovery.Dodgers: RHP Ross Stripling was placed on the disabled list with inflammation in the big toe of his right foot, with manager Dave Roberts saying it could take 10-12 days to heal. … Justin Turner (right groin strain) took live batting practice Monday and ran the bases, three days before he is eligible to return from the 10-day disabled list.STAR POWERDallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett was on field at Dodger Stadium pregame Monday, watching batting practice for both the Dodgers and Brewers. Garrett held a lengthy conversation on the field with Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw, a Dallas-area native.The Cowboys are in training camp in nearby Oxnard, approximately 60 miles west of Los Angeles.UP NEXTBrewers: LHP Wade Miley (1-1, 2.01 ERA) figures to feel right at home at Dodger Stadium, where he is 3-0 with a 2.41 ERA over six career starts.Dodgers: RHP Walker Buehler (4-3, 3.92) will make his third start since returning from the DL because of a rib microfracture, coming off an outing at Philadelphia where he gave up five earned runs to match a season high.— GLENDALE Nick Markakis Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — With Corey Seager’s expected return by opening day and the acquisition of right-handed hitting center fielder A.J. Pollock, the Los Angeles Dodgers are not expected to be platooning.Seager was limited to 26 games last season and did not play after April 29. He had Tommy John surgery on May 4 to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament and had arthroscopic surgery on his left hip on Aug. 7.“There is a certain narrative on us platooning last year, and I think that was kind of for survival,” manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday during his first spring training availability.The two-time NL champions traded Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp to the Cincinnati Reds and allowed Manny Machado and Yasmani Grandal to leave as free agents. The Dodgers’ major addition was to sign Pollock as a free agent.“I think that we’re not as susceptible against left-handed pitching,” Roberts said. “Offensively, we’re much more balanced, one through eight. Whoever those eight might be on a particular night will conduct consistently better at-bats. And I think the bullpen depth is better than it was last year.”The recovery of Seager, the 2016 NL Rookie of the Year, is critical.“He looks really good,” Roberts said.Roberts hopes his shortstop, who is throwing at 90 feet Babe Ruth Jersey , can get 50 to 60 at-bats during spring training.Beginning his fourth season as manager, Roberts said left-hander Clayton Kershaw would like to regain some velocity. Kershaw’s average fastball velocity dropped from 93 mph in 2017 to 91 mph last season, when he dealt with a back injury.“He feels strong,” Roberts said.Closer Kenley Jansen is expected to have a more aggressive spring training routine following surgery Nov. 26 to correct an irregular heartbeat.“I think with Kenley, it will be more towards ’17 spring, and I say that where we were a little bit more active,” Roberts said. “Last year with the workload . we kind of slow-played him and he had a couple little hiccups with the body and it kind of put him back a little bit. He’s in great shape right now.”Roberts also says he expects reacquired catcher Russell Martin and Austin Barnes will compete for time behind the plate.“To get a guy like Russell Martin, whose been in the postseason 10, 11 years in his big year career, he’s a winning player,” Roberts said. “He’s been a Dodger http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-markakis-jersey , he couldn’t be happier to come back home, so to kind of pair with Austin I think is a very good duo. And I think that time will tell. So they are going to split time, and we’ll see who gets the lion’s share.”The revamped roster, minus Puig and Matt Kemp who were traded to the Cincinnati Reds, and subtracting free agents Manny Machado and Yasmani Grandal, is more balanced, said Roberts.
Adam Ottavino will be part of a loaded bullpen for the New York Yankees next season.Per The Athletic's Robert Murray and Ken Rosenthal http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-jersey , Ottavino and the Yankees are closing in on a three-year deal.ESPN's Jeff Passan reported the two sides agreed to terms. Fancred Sports' Jon Heymanadded Ottavino will receive $27 million over three years.Ottavino, 33, had his best season as an MLB player in 2018, finishing with a 6-4 record and six saves in 75 appearances for the Colorado Rockies. He posted a 2.43 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 112 strikeouts in 77.2 innings, helping fuel Colorado's 91-win regular season.His strikeout total in the 2018 season set a Rockies record for a reliever, a mark he told The Athletic's Nick Groke he had in his crosshairs:"I always felt I was capable of doing it. There are elite guys who do that. And I felt like I had the ability to get strikeouts at that rate. I just had to get off to a good start with it. That way I could get the innings to do it."It's silly to set a results goal Russell Martin Jersey , but that one made the most sense for me because if I'm trying to strike guys out, it keeps me on the attack and makes me throw more strikes. And everything else falls into place when I'm aggressive like that."InOttavino, Wade Davis, Scott Oberg and Seungwhan Oh, the Rockies had a formidable late-game foursome in their bullpen.Now, however, New York will benefit from the addition ofOttavino Josh Donaldson Jersey , who may be one of the sneakier additions in free agency this winter and should improve the bullpen significantly.The Yankees lost some of their reliever depth earlier this offseason when David Robertson signed with the Philadelphia Phillies. Ottavino will slot into his role late in games for manager Aaron Boone as the team looks to overtake the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox in the American League East. ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Mike Scioscia says he would like to keep managing next year.The longtime skipper of the Los Angeles Angels has been widely expected to step down after the regular season concludes this week. His comments to KLAA-AM radio Monday night suggested he is open to returning for a 20th season in the Angels’ dugout, or perhaps a managing job elsewhere in baseball.When asked directly if he wanted to keep managing, Scioscia said: “I’d like to.”“We’ll continue to evaluate things this week,” Scioscia added. “I’ll speak with (Angels owner) Arte (Moreno) and speak with (general manager) Billy (Eppler), and kind of come to a decision. But I think that if you love something, you want to continue to keep doing it. If you can http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-jersey , great. And if it doesn’t happen, so be it. But I love the dugout.”Scioscia, who will turn 60 in November, is the longest-tenured manager in the majors by seven seasons, and he earned his 1,600th career victory earlier this year. Since taking over the team for the 2000 season, he has led the Angels to six AL West titles and their only World Series championship back in 2002.“I love managing J.A. Happ Jersey ,” Scioscia said. “I love the dugout. I love the challenge of getting the team and getting them going in the right direction. That’s something I thoroughly enjoy.”But Scioscia’s lucrative 10-year contract ends this season, and the Angels have made the playoffs just once in the last nine years despite annual high-priced rosters.
