ST. Nike Epic React Flyknit White . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays, three days removed from an 11-game losing streak, bounced back by taking two of three games from the Boston Red Sox, but, starting Thursday, they will face another surging team in a four-game series against the Detroit Tigers, who open an 11-game road trip that goes right up to the All-Star break.Especially against teams that were familiar with, we should go in with a lot of confidence, Tigers outfielder Cameron Maybin said after Wednesdays 10-3 win over the Marlins. The biggest thing is, going into the break, we want to bring as much energy and effort as we can, not take any day too lightly and make sure we finish strong going into the break.Detroit (40-38) is coming off a 6-3 homestand, one that included a three-game sweep at the hands of the Indians, but they will get another shot at them immediately after the Rays series. The Tigers had 15 hits in Wednesdays win, and home runs from Miguel Cabrera, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and 24-year-old Steven Moya, who has four home runs in his last six games.Moya, huge at 6-foot-7 and 260 pounds, has always had power potential -- he has 10 extra-base hits in 63 at-bats this season -- but manager Brad Ausmus said his key is lowering the swing-and-miss factor and keeping control of his at-bats.Detroit took two of three games from the Rays in May, and Thursdays starter is Jordan Zimmermann, who won one of those games, holding the Rays to two runs in 5 2/3 innings. He is now 9-4 with a 3.81 ERA, and will face the Rays Jake Odorizzi, who has a comparable ERA at 3.93 ERA but a hard-luck 3-3 record.Odorizzi has pitched well in his career against the Tigers, with a 2-1 record and 1.93 career ERA. He hopes to build off a strong start Wednesday by Tampa Bays Matt Moore, who threw seven shutout innings and took a no-hitter into the sixth. Its the kind of starting pitching the Rays expected going into 2016, but havent seen much of in a disappointing first half of the season. Moore outpitched former Rays ace David Price to pick up the win against Boston.I think everybody in this building has admiration for David Price and what he means to the organization, Rays manager Kevin Cash said Wednesday. Any time you get to compete against him, it is special. Matt Moore was a young pitcher when he was here. They follow him, they listen to him and to go toe-to-toe with that guy has to be special for Matt. He was outstanding.While Detroit has a week and a half on the road, the Rays are in the middle of an 11-game homestand, needing more consistent success at Tropicana Field as they try to scrap their way back to .500.

45 (34 balls, 7 fours) whil

WACO, Texas -- Johnathan Motley and the Baylor Bears got quite an early-season confidence boost -- their first-ever non-conference home win over a top-five opponent. Adidas Gazelle Mujer Baratas .And it counts even though fourth-ranked Oregon was without preseason All-America forward Dillon Brooks, their 6-foot-7 junior who was their leading scorer last season but is still recovering from offseason foot surgery.An eager Motley, who was suspended for the opener, scored 17 points in his season debut as Baylor beat the Ducks 66-49 on Tuesday.It gives us confidence knowing we can go out there and beat a good team like Oregon and maybe keep things going, Motley said. I was pretty fired up. Its really hard watching your teammates play.Motley missed the season opener for Baylor (2-0) after violating an NCAA rule by playing in an improper summer league game.Trailing by 10 at the break, Oregon (1-1) got within 33-32 on Chris Bouchers dunk to cap a second half-opening 9-0 run. The Ducks had the ball again with the chance to go ahead after Dylan Ennis steal, but then turned it over.That led to Ishmail Wainrights layup from Matt Lecomtes ally-oop pass, and Baylor started to stretch the lead again.Lecomte had 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting that included four 3-pointers. Jo Lual-Acuil grabbed 14 rebounds and had seven blocked shots for Baylor.Ennis led Oregon with 16 points, and Boucher finished with 12. Jordan Bell had 11 rebounds.The Ducks quickly led 3-0 when Boucher hit from long range on the games first shot, before they then missed six in a row. Motley made his first shot of the season and Manu Lecomte a buzzer-beating 3-pointer, and Baylor never trailed again.Didnt play very well, and didnt make plays for each other, so weve got a tremendous amount of work to do, Oregon coach Dana Altman said. Its difficult (without Brooks), but thats the way it goes. ... Theres no doubt hes a good player, but weve got some other good players that didnt play very well.BIG PICTUREOregon: While the Ducks were able to get past Army in their opener without Brooks, they clearly could have used their standout forward against the Bears, who dominated inside. Oregon struggled shooting at 33 percent (19 of 58) from the field and got outrebounded 41-30. Dillons a good rebounder but hes not going to make that difference up, said Altman, who wouldnt say when Brooks might return.Baylor: The Bears are 4-7 in their last 11 games against top-five teams. Maybe this will get the notice of poll voters. The Bears, picked to finish in the middle of the tough Big 12, havent been getting any votes so far this season.ZONE FACTORAsked about the difficulty of facing Baylors zone defense, Altman responded, Well, we did pretty good last year, we just didnt do good this year. Oregon beat Baylor 74-67 at home last November.BIG FACTORBaylors lead was only one midway through the first half when the 7-foot Lual-Acuil blocked a shot and was pumping his arms near midcourt after making a pass to Wendell Mitchell for a layup. Lual-Acuil made the next basket when he posted right under the goal, and got an inbound pass from Lecomte. I was trying to be a factor somehow, Lual-Acuil said. I knew my shots werent falling so I just tried to figure out different way of helping the team.HE SAID ITA lot of times, you play in big games and you play out of character, youre too nervous, youre too excited, Drew said. Weve played against a lot of good Big 12 teams in the top five that have beaten us. And I think we did a good job of staying poisedUP NEXTOregon played the first of five games in nine days. The Ducks are home Thursday night to play Valparaiso, where Drew was previously a head coach -- after his father and before his brother.Baylor is home for its third consecutive game to start the season, against Florida Gulf Coast on Friday night. Florida Gulf Coasts run to the NCAA Sweet 16 was in 2013, the season that Baylor was NIT champion.---More AP college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org Adidas Gazelle Rojas Baratas . -- Jimmy Walkers first PGA Tour trophy came with a special gift tucked inside.

Oaklands loss to Seattle clinched the ALs best record for the Red Sox with one day to spare in the regular season. "I think everybody was kind of watching," catcher David Ross said. "Demp (Ryan Dempster) came out before he went to the bullpen and was just yelling that they lost. Surrey 154 for 4 (Sibley 40, Roy 36) beat Sussex 153 for 6 (Cachopa 45, Nash 39) by six wicketsScorecard Surrey kept their hopes of reaching the last eight of the NatWest T20 Blast alive with a comfortable six-wicket win over Sussex Sharks in front of a 22,601 crowd at The Kia Oval.Having restricted Sussex to 153 for 6 on a slow pitch, Surrey paced their response perfectly and won the game with ten balls to spare when Chris Morris swung Mustafizur Rahman over midwicket for six.It was Surreys sixth win in the ultra-competitive South Group and they join Sussex on 12 points, but the Sharks only have one game left - at home to second-placed Glamorgan next Wednesday - and their chances of making the quarter-finals appear remote.Surrey had been given a strong start by England opener Jason Roy, who made 36 off 25 balls, hitting six fours and a six.Roy looked in the mood but was becalmed by slow left-armer Danny Briggs who came on in the powerplay and bowled Roy in his second over as the batsman slogged across the line. A clearly frustrated Roy angrily swished his bat at the stumps as he departed, an act which may earn him a rebuke from umpires David Millns and Alex Wharf.Roys opening partner Aaron Finch had gone in the third over, caught at backward point off a huge top-edge to give Jofra Archer, the Barbados-born fast bowler playing only his third game in the competition, the first of two wickets.But Dominic Sibley and Rory Burns were determined not to squander Surreys good start. The third-wicket pair added 42 in 27 balls and although Burns (13) wass superbly caught at long leg by the diving Rahman, Sibley made a composed 40 off 31 deliveries with three sixes and a four to put his side in control. Adidas Gazelle Blancas Hombre. He was athletically caught by Sussex captain Luke Wright at extra cover in the 15th over, but Surrey required just 38 runs at that stage and Morris (20) and Ben Foakes (22) eased them to their sixth win of the group stage.Sussex, who had been put in, were 15-20 runs short in the end. With four overs to go they were 135 for 3 but Jade Dernbach and Tom Curran bowled superbly at the death, taking three wickets as Sussex cobbled together just 18 more runs.Craig Cachopa and Matt Machan had put on 51 in 31 balls for the fourth wicket but they fell off successive Dernbach deliveries in the 19th over. Machan (18) top-edged a pull and Cachopa was held at long on for 45 (34 balls, 7 fours) while Chris Jordan gave Curran a deserved wicket when he holed out to deep mid-wicket in the final over.Sussex were without fast bowler Tymal Mills because of ankle trouble and their leading scorer in this seasons Blast Ross Taylor, who has joined up with New Zealand for their tour of South Africa.In Taylors absence they needed experienced openers Chris Nash and Wright to perform and although Nash played well for his 39 from 34 balls, Sussex captain Wright was out for just 7.Surreys seamers showed good control with Dernbach taking 2 for 25, Morris 2 for 21 and Tom Curran 1 for 20.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Manuel Akanji Trikot . -- Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell says he was doing his homework on Greg Hardy when he brought in the polarizing defensive end for a two-day workout and interview session last week.Caldwell said he has no imminent plans to sign Hardy, a free agent who spent last season in Dallas. He added that the Jaguars are going to turn over every rock, but not at any price.We want to take calculated risks and well take chances, but were not going to do this at any cost, either, Caldwell said.Hardy had a tumultuous season with the Cowboys, one that started with a four-game suspension stemming from his domestic violence case in North Carolina. It also was marked by several disruptions including a physical confrontation with an assistant coach. Dallas opted not to re-sign him.It was an opportunity for us -- heres a guy that was a franchise defensive end two years ago sitting out on the street -- to bring him in, work him out and try to find out the facts where hes at, the truth behind everything that surrounds him and just do our homework, Caldwell said. We brought him and he did a workout.Its not often you get your chance to put your hands on a player of that caliber to work him out. So well just see where its at. We have no imminent plans of signing him at this point. But it was good to get him in here and find out about him.The Jaguars could use some veteran pass-rushing help after parting ways with Chris Clemons and Andre Branch and failing to sign Olivier Vernon and Robert Ayers in free agency.They have Dante Fowler, the third overall pick in the 2015 draft, coming off knee surgery but have little quality depth behind him. His backups include linebacker Dan Skuta, former first-round pick Bjoern Werner, third-year pro Chris Smith and rookies Yannick Ngakoue and Tyrone Holmes.Adding Hardy to the mix likely would only happen if the Jaguars deal with injuries or inconsistency during training camp, which begins Thursday.And Hardy, one of the biggest names, remaining on the free-agent market.It was really to find out more about him so we dont have any questions going into the season, Caldwell said. There are no what-ifs for us right now. There could have been a what-if Week 3, Week 4 or into the preseason, but we kind of have our questions answered as our game plan for him.Hardy was suspended for the first four games of last season for violating the NFLs personal conduct policy. He was accused in 2014 of throwing his then-girlfriend into a bathtub and then on a futon covered with guns and trying to choke her. A judge found him guilty on domestic violence charges.Hardy denied the charges and said his ex was under the influence of alcohol and was angry because he told her to leave his home. He appealed the conviction, and the case was dismissed in February 2015 after prosecutors said they were unable to locate the woman. Prosecutors said the woman had reached a settlement with Hardy.Domestic violence is a serious issue, Caldwell said. Theres no place for it in the world, let alone the NFL. But I think for us, were going to do whats best for our team. We have players that want to win. We have a coaching staff that wants to win as much as our fan base. Were going to turn over every rock, but not at any price.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Marwin Hitz Trikot .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner.

The Brazilian goalkeeper signed a loan deal with the Major League Soccer club on Friday as he looks to get playing time ahead of this summers World Cup in his home country. http://www.cheaptigersjerseyschina.com/miguel-cabrera-jersey/ . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. By nearly all accounts, the LPGA had its best season to date and there are certainly plenty of points to be praised, but also some areas for improvement. So as weve done for the past three years, lets take a look at the good, the bad and the ugly of one of the longest running womens professional sports associations in the world.The Good1. Yearlong competition. At Thursday nights annual awards dinner, the only major competitive award decided was the Louise Suggs Rookie of the Year award, won in convincing style by Koreas In Gee Chun. Still in play were the Player of the Year and Vare Trophy, awarded to the player with the lowest stroke average.Player of the Year was not locked up until the 15th hole of the final round of the final tournament when Thailands Ariya Jutanugarn holed a bomb for birdie, eliminating any chance Lydia Ko, the world No. 1, could win the tournament and capture the year-end title.Even closer was the race for the scoring title, which came down to Ko and Chun. The two golfers played a total of 11,552 shots in 2016 and Chun birdied the last three holes to win by .001 strokes. Thanks for our ace golf researcher, Zach Jones, we had these numbers updated by the minute, stroke-by-stroke throughout the final round telecast. Chun also joined LPGA and World Golf Hall of Fame member Nancy Lopez as the only player to win Rookie of the Year and the Vare trophy in the same year (1978).2. Youth is served. There were 24 wins by players 24 or younger, including 20-year-old Charley Hulls first LPGA title at the season finale. There wasnt a winner who could rent a car -- the age minimum is usually 25 -- until Anna Nordqvist won the ShopRite LPGA Classic in June. The oldest champion was a whopping 30 years old when Brittany Lang captured the U.S. Womens Open.3. Rio Olympics. You can make the argument that it was more important for the womens competition to be successful in Rio than for the mens simply because of the worldwide audience exposure that they do not have on a regular basis.Inbee Parks gold medal performance, when many in her own country urged her to give up her spot on the team due to a chronic thumb/wrist injury, was absolutely phenomenal. Ko took home the silver and Shanshan Feng won bronze, knowing she was bringing the game to millions in her homeland of China and the importance of that exposure. No LPGA-generated television deal can come close to having the impact that week did on an international level.4. Solheim Cup returns to U.S. soil in 2017. Des Moines Golf and CC hosted arguably the most successful and well-attended U.S. Senior Open in 1999 and will host the biennial matches next summer. Juli Inkster will again captain the American squad as they look for back-to-back wins. Strong ticket sales, corporate sales and volunteer signups are all signs pointing to a terrific week, one that is vitally important to both the LPGA and Ladies European Tour.Early momentum points to the Euros being favorites with wins by Nordqvist, Hull and two late victories by Spains Carlota Ciganda this year. The American players, despite a team win in the UL International Crown, accounted for only two individual wins all year.5. Venue change. The KPMG Womens PGA Championships move from Westchester CC in suburban New York to Sahalee CC outside Seattle was brilliant. The anemic support by the New York club and the golf fans in the area made the 2015 event feel like it was on life support when in fact both the LPGA, PGA of America and KPMG had poured enormous resources into the championship. Sahalee and the Northwest supported the event in the manner deserved for the LPGAs second-longest running event and when the championship goes to Olympia Fields near Chicago next year, expect more of the same.6. Expanding horizons. The LPGA has been loosely involved in retail sales through its online pro shop for some time, but it has recently opened its first retail store in Seoul. There are plans to have 100 more in South Korea by 2018 when the UL International Crown will be played at Jack Nicklaus GC in Incheon, site of the 2015 Presidents Cup and the most recent Asia Pacific Amateur Championship. The superstars of South Korea have changed the landscape of the LPGA and its business where nearly half of its tournaments have ties to Asian companies. What an opportunity to grow your retail operations with fans who are enamored with womens golf and the LPGA.7. The 2017 schedule. Well use this topic to transition from good to bad because there are a lot of positive things going on with next years schedule, which will be rolled out in the next couple of weeks. Officials say the gain will likely be a net increase of one event above the 33 in 2016 and a gain of 11 since 2011.New domestic events added to the schedule will be in Indianapolis and Green Bay. The Ladies Scottish Open will be added as a co-sanctioned event with the LET, creating back-to-back weeks in Scotland as the Womens British Open will be at Kingsbarns. The second international addition will be the New Zealand Open near the beginning of the LPGAs fall swing.There will likely be a loss of three domestic events: Ocala, Florida; Prattville, Alabama; and suburban San Francisco. There is also open dialogue between the LPGA and the PGA Tour as officials try to work out the details of bringing back the very popular mixed-team event, an exciting benefit of the organizations new alliance.The Bad1. Addition and subtraction. The new international events are not really new but rather acquisitions, and the domestic growth is not keeping up with international expansion. Commissioner Mike Whan fully expects the loss in Ocala to be replaced by another Florida event in 2018.While the LPGAs schedule reflects its international membership, it is still an American-based association. Televising many of those international events in the middle of the night for what amounts to nearly three moonths of the total schedule really hurts the momentum that is built up during the bulk of the year. Authentic Tigers Jerseys. .The LPGA left North America for seven events beginning in mid-September, not returning until the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in early November, an event that was not even televised.2. American performance (or lack thereof). Only two Americans won official events in 2016, Lexi Thompson and Brittany Lang. This cannot make the growth prospects of Whans business as commissioner any easier. I am repeatedly asked why the American output is so much below expectation and my opinion remains that U.S. players are out-motivated, out-focused and outdriven by their foreign counterparts, particularly those from the Asia where competition is one thing, but winning is really all that is rewarded.The discipline of those players is jaw-dropping, even to someone who reached the pinnacle as I did. I watch many of the LPGA players on social media and the number of posts of Americans vs. others really is astounding. Everyone has their best way to prepare and connect, but efficiency and focus for U.S. golfers seems to be compromised.Chan-Goog Yang, head pro at Seouls Sky 72 club recently said no matter what form of competition, you are either a champion or nothing. It may seem harsh, but that is the stark reality of this successful mindset. No participation medals. You must win.This isnt the only reason for the American drought and this certainly is not the first time there has been a significant dry spell. In 2011 Americans accounted for just four wins. In 2009 there were just five and only six in 2002. Those entities invested in the growth and excellence of the game in the U.S., while each believing they were helping people fall in love and stick with the game, have diluted each others efforts by not communicating, being extremely territorial and not really acknowledging that the rest of the world was not only catching up, but passing us.Finally we are seeing cooperation between the LPGA, USGA, PGA of America, Augusta National, the AJGA and others that is driving participation numbers, especially among young girls. The PGA Junior League, modeled on Little League baseball, is open to both boys and girls and is playing its national finals this week.A total of 36,000 kids participated this year, up from 9,000 just four years ago. Six years ago there were 5,000 girls in LPGA-USGA Girls Golf programs. Today there are nearly 60,000. There is certainly no guarantee these initiatives will churn out champions, but at least now the conversation has begun to create an American developmental model such as Canada, South Korea, Australia and others have had for many years.Drive, Chip and Putt has been a gigantic success as a partnership between the Masters, USGA and PGA of America and has already produced a significant champion since its formation in 2013 when Lucy Li, a 2014 age group winner, became the 2016 Junior Girls PGA Champion.Operating in silos, regardless of good intention, can only take American development so far. Time to keep talking and doing -- together -- to make American junior golf and, hopefully, female professional golf, rise in a big way again.The Ugly1. Hands off, players. Only one and this one came to my attention last week in Naples, Florida, while walking the course on Friday morning and questioning an LPGA official about why the par-5 17th hole was only 485 yards.Watching the telecast the day prior, I had noticed nearly every player had been able to reach the green in two shots and Jutanugarn even reached it with just two irons. The officials explanation was this: they are trying to create some drama toward the end of the round, but there is also a committee of players who have passed along the directive that at least one par-5 be reachable for everyone each day.I totally get the drama part, but the latter? Really? Players dictating setup philosophy? Now while the CME is not a major championship, it is clearly one of the most important events on the LPGA schedule and the players are telling the officials how to set up the course?While I applaud the players for taking ownership of their tour, what do they really know about set up and bringing architectural features (plus strategy into play on various holes two of which were virtually eliminated on this particular hole) or the setup of an equitable competition? Many dont even know the rules!Further exacerbating Saturdays setup where the par-5 sixth hole was reachable by most, in addition to No. 17, was the par-4 13th being moved up from 350 yards to 212. (No, that was not a typo.) The golf course overall played at less than 6,300 yards for the third round. As best as TV could tell, only one player even used a driver on the 13th!Imagine other sports doing this: Were going to use a shorter rim in the NBA Finals for the shorter team if they are trailing in the final minutes; the ninth player in the lineup in the World Series gets to use an aluminum bat; the final row of Indianapolis 500 qualifiers get to use a bigger engine; if a player is trailing after two sets at Wimbledon, they get to use the margins of both the singles and doubles court.This was more like a made-for-TV celebrity ski competition or a net handicap tournament. The LPGA has terrific officials. Hand off this particular wheel, players, and let them do their jobs.Ah, one last good -- even great in closing.A real offseason for the LPGA.Unlike the PGA Tours wraparound schedule, just about two months will pass before another official shot is struck, giving everyone a chance to rest, rehab, enjoy the holidays and have a true reset before the new season starts. ?I look forward to those two months off before the start of a new year that promises to be even better than the last.

Australias 4x100m freestyle relay team claimed Rio Olympic gold on Saturday night in a world record time. Satchel Paige Jersey .The team of Emma McKeon, Brittany Elmslie, Bronte and sister Cate Campbell ensured Australia defended its Olympic title.They clocked three minutes 30.65 seconds, bettering Australias previous world-best mark of 3:30.98 set at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.Earlier, Australias Mack Horton secured the nations first gold medal at Rio, winning the 400m freestyle.The 20-year-old is the first Australian since Ian Thorpe in 2004 to win the Olympic 400m freestyle crown.Horton clocked three minutes, 41.55 seconds to claim the stirring win ahead of defending champion Sun Yang (3:41.68) of China.While earlier Sunday morning Australias archers won the nations first medal of the Games, taking a surprise bronze in the teams event.Taylor Worth, Ryan Tyack and Alec Potts beat China in the bronze medal match to put Australia on the medal table early at the Sambodromo on the opening day of competition.But cycling hope Richie Portes Games are over after he crashed out in the road race.After finishing fifth in the Tour de France last month, Porte arrived in Rio as a medal chance in both the road race and time trial.The Tasmanian is now out of Wednesdays time trial after breaking his collar bone when he crashed on the second of three descents from the steep Vista Chinese climb, injuring his right shoulder.He was well placed with less than 40km left in the brutal 237.5km race, sitting in the main peloton as it chased a leading group of five riders.No Australians featured among the top finishers, with Belgian Greg van Avermaet claiming the gold.Conditions were also tough for the rowers, while Australia had an unlikely pair of Olympic history makers in John Millman and Melissa Tapper and the team sports made solid starts.The rowing regatta opened in high winds and choppy waters at Lagoa Stadium, with Australias gold medal favourite Kim Brennan describing the course as unrowable.Brennan lost her first single scull race in two years when she finished third in her heat but is through to Tuesdays quarter finals.Theyve never raced us in these sort of conditions before, its unprecedented to race a race in cross white cap conditions, said Brennan.Normally this would be deemed unrowable.Teammate Rhys Grant also reached the quarters of the mens single scull, while mens pair Spencer Turrin and Alex Lloyd won their heat.Andrew Bogut led Australias basketballers?to an 87-66 thrashing of France, while the womens side came from behind to open their Olympics with a win over hosts Brazil.The mens hockey side scraped home with a 2-1 win over New Zealand, but the womens side were left disappointed as they fell 2-1 short against great Britain in a tough hit out.Australias womens rugby team dominated in their opening day, defeating Columbia 53-0 in the biggest victory of the day, while they also outclassed Fiji 36-0 in a six-try rout.World No.75 Millman recorded the first double bagel in Olympic tennis history, thrashing hapless Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis 6-0 6-0 in the first round. But Thanasi Kokkinakis and Jordan Thompson lost their opening matches.And although Tapper crashed out in the first round of the table tennis, the Victorian, who was born with nerve damage in her right arm, became the first Australian to compete at both an Olympics and Paralympics. Yan Gomes Jersey . -- James Young couldnt wait to apply those tweaks to his jump shot, and the first one he made against UT Arlington told him it could be a good night. Authentic Indians Jerseys . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. http://www.cheapindiansjerseyschina.com/manny-ramirez-jersey/ .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. Value over replacement player (VORP) is a valuable tool when trying to compare the apples and oranges of positions in fantasy hockey. Most rankings are happy to say, Whatever, they are both fruits. Close enough. This approach lumps everyone together for a look at their value. Thats fine and definitely a justifiable approach to your season, but when we break down the apples and oranges for closer comparison, things change quickly.For this exercise, we are using ESPN.coms fantasy hockey projections for the 2016-17 season and the associated ESPN Player Rater value of those projections. Remember, this uses our seven standard offensive categories (goals, assists, shots, plus/minus, penalty minutes, power-play points and average time on ice) and three goalie categories (wins, save percentage, goals-against average).Run the projections through the ESPN Player Rater and you get a fairly standard ranking that should be generally accepted by most fantasy hockey owners. Jamie Benn is at the top, followed by Sidney Crosby, Patrick Kane, Braden Holtby, Carey Price, Alex Ovechkin, Jonathan Quick, Connor McDavid, Joe Pavelski and Erik Karlsson to round out the top 10. Maybe Quick is a little high, but certainly nothing you wouldnt expect here.Its key to remember that the rankings are not tailored to any league. These are rankings of which player produces the most fantasy value in a vacuum. It doesnt account for which player can actually contribute those points based on the roster setup in your league and position eligibility. For that, we need to turn to value over replacement player.When we have a tool like the ESPN Player Rater, value over replacement player is very simple to calculate. In a 12-team league that starts two centers, you can take the ESPN Player Rater value of the 25th-best center and subtract it from the value of the 24 centers ahead of him who deserve a starting roster spot. Done. The number you are left with is -- quite literally -- that players value over the replacement player that doesnt qualify for a roster spot based on projections.In a shallower 12-team league with specific position requirements, you might be starting two centers, two left wingers, two right wingers, four defensemen and two goalies, for a total of 12 active players. This will be our example for a shallow league.That league would be starting 24 centers, so Dylan Larkin is our replacement player. His projected ESPN Player Rater value trails 24 other centers in the league who should be starting ahead of him. Your first thought might be, But Dylan Larkin is pretty good, isnt he? That thought is exactly the point we are trying to make. Based on the ESPN Player Rater in a vacuum, Larkin is the 77th-best player projected for the coming season. You might think that would easily be high enough to be considered in a 12-team league, which would feature 144 active fantasy roster spots. But its possible, if not probable, that you can draft two centers with more value than Larkin, which means he would be sitting on your bench all season, unless you have an injury or he gains different eligibility during the season.Furthermore, because Larkins value as a replacement is so high, he impacts the rest of the centers when you consider them for their value over replacement player. Crosby might be the projected second-most valuable player this season in a vacuum, but when accounting for position and value over replacement player, he falls to No. 15. Why? He has less value over the 25th-best center (Larkin) than other positions have over their equivalent replacement player.Our new top-10 fantasy players based on value over replacement player looks like this: Holtby, Price, Quick, Martin Jones, Ben Bishop, Benn, Karlsson, Kane, Brent Burns and Cory Schneider. You can see that both goaltenders and defensemen are more prized when you start to consider who you can replace them with. Karlsson and Burns are so much better than the 49th-best defenseman (or replacement defenseman), that they leap up the rankings. The elite goaltenders are valued even more, based on what you might get if you are stuck with the 25th-ranked goaltender.But this type of player evaluation is extremely specific to your league setup and depth. Tweak our example to a deeper pool of players, and the top 10 looks different again. Heres how the value-over-replacement rankings would start for a 12-team league starting three centers, three left wingers, three right wingers, six defensemen and two goalies: Holtby, Karlsson, Price, Burns, Kane, Benn, Quick, Jones, Bishop and Dustin Byfuglien. As you can see, deepening the pool of active skaters pushes our elite defensemen even higher and, interestingly, switches the order of Kane and Benn from our shallower pool.Positional scarcity takeawaysLeft wing is weak: In our shallow pool example, Phil Kessel is the No. 8 right winger and ranks 37th in value over replacement player. Wayne Simmonds is the No. 3 left winger and ranks 40th. As you can infer, the value over replacement player puts an onus on getting a right winger early and waiting on the port side. That bears out when we chart the value.Click here to expand this chart.Click here to expand this chart.Looking at the ESPN Player Rater value of our top 24 right and left wingers separately, you can see the right wing value drops in a steady decline, whereas the left wing slope is sharp, before leveling out somewhat. That means if you arent grabbing Benn or Johnny Gaudreau, theres a strong argument for waiting.. Jim Thome Jersey. ou can wait on center, too: Before Crosby appears as our No. 1 center for value over replacement player in the shallow league example, there are nine goalies, two defensemen, two right wingers and one left winger ahead of him. McDavid is the No. 2 center, with 14 goalies, eight defensemen, four right wingers, two left wingers and Crosby ahead of him. The other positions all clearly break out ahead of center and left wing for overall value.Once again, a chart can illustrate it. Below is the sum of all 120 roster-worthy skaters based on their value over replacement player. The total defensemen value has been adjusted to reflect the same sample size as the forward positions.Click here to expand this chart.As with our premise with Larkin to introduce this concept, its clear you can also wait a bit on your center this season and not make out too badly. If you wanted to tier them, Crosby, McDavid and Pavelski are at the top. There is a bit of a drop off then to John Tavares, Artemi Panarin, Tyler Seguin, Nicklas Backstrom, Patrice Bergeron and Evgeni Malkin. The next group starts with Steven Stamkos and follows a fairly steady decline from there. Heres another handy chart with the left wing value-over-replacement player line included for scale.Click here to expand this chart.Take goaltender value with a grain of salt: Goaltenders finish atop the ESPN Player Rater every season, and the best ones easily outperform most skaters for fantasy value. So why do we tend to rank them lower every season? Volatility and injury.How many goaltenders in the top 10 for save percentage last season were also in the top 10 in 2014-15? Three. Of those three, were any in the top 10 for 2013-14? No. Of the top 10 from 2014-15, how many were in the top 10 from 2013-14? Two.As you can see, there is a lot of turnover every season from poor performance, changes in team system, slumps, playing time, competition and injury. While goaltenders shine when projecting value over replacement player, the projections we use wont pan out with quite as much confidence as we have in the skaters. If you really, really think a goaltender is a lock for a great year, they would instantly soar up your personal fantasy rankings, but things happen. Ask Price owners from last season.When tiering your goaltenders, there is a pretty clear duo at the top in Holtby and Price, followed by Quick, Jones and Bishop. Then there is another gap to Schneider, Corey Crawford, Henrik Lundqvist and Pekka Rinne. Those top nine should arguably be your targets for including a No. 1 fantasy goaltender.The next couplet is Tuukka Rask and Jake Allen, followed by Roberto Luongo, Marc-Andre Fleury and John Gibson, then there is another gap until we can group Brian Elliott and Petr Mrazek. If you manage to get one goaltender from the first group and another from this second group, you should be leading the way at the end of the season.Of course, as we mentioned, take these goaltender rankings and projections with a grain of salt, as they fluctuate more than the other positions. We might debate a few of the projections too. For example, Devan Dubnyk on a Bruce Boudreau-coached Minnesota Wild team feels like he would be better than the 18th-best goaltender.Dont worry too much about tiering defensemen: The slope for the value-over-replacement player chart for defensemen starts a little steeper but very quickly becomes a nice gentle ride down. That is to say, Karlsson and Burns are your elite; Byfuglien, Oliver Ekman-Larsson and P.K. Subban are your next class; and everybody else, more or less, falls in line from there.Its easier to see with a bar chart this time, starting at the top and working our way down through all 48 active defensemen from our shallow-pool example.Click here to expand this chart.The key takeaway with defensemen, however, is that they tend to be ranked too low, compared to their forward counterparts, because their overall Player Rater value is lower. But as we discussed already, it doesnt matter as much that Larkins overall Player Rater value is better than 36 of the defensemen on the chart above if you cant get Larkin into your lineup because you play in a league with just two centers. Defensemen as a group take the largest leap up the rankings when we move from a straight Player Rater ranking to a value-over-replacement player ranking. Victor Hedman is No. 101 on the Player Rater projections, but No. 56 for value over replacement player.Again, these type of rankings would have to be based on your leagues active-roster settings, maximum-games-played rules and number of teams. But the bottom line is that we tend to undervalue defensemen, assuming the ratio of forwards to defensemen in your league is somewhere in the usual ballpark of 3:2 (i.e., six forwards and four defensemen or nine forwards and six defensemen).Bottom lineOnce more, a reminder that even the slightest nuance to a fantasy hockey league skews value-over-replacement-player rankings in a different direction. That is to say, you should use these thoughts as a general guide only.But generally speaking:Left wing is weaker than right wing, which means you go big or wait.Center is full of great players, which means you can wait a little more.There are only about 10 No. 1 fantasy goaltenders -- even for a 12-team league.Defensemen, as a group, are being undervalued in most leagues.

Worcester suffered a miserable night in south Wales as their European Challenge Cup quarterfinal hopes were dented by Newport Gwent Dragons at Rodney Parade.

WASHINGTON -- Al-Jazeera America is asking a judge to dismiss defamation lawsuits filed by two Major League Baseball players over statements made in the broadcasters documentary about performance-enhancing drugs in sports. Discount Diamondbacks Jerseys .Lawyers for the news organization and for Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals and Ryan Howard of the Philadelphia Phillies appeared Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Washington. The suits, which were consolidated into one Tuesday, refer to the documentary The Dark Side: Secrets of Sports Doping, broadcast by Al-Jazeera America in December 2015.The suit alleges a pharmacist who appeared in the documentary made false statements when he said Zimmerman and Howard took banned performance-enhancing drugs.Major League Baseball investigated the allegations and said it found no violations of its drug agreement.After more than two hours of arguments Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson said she would issue a written ruling on whether the case should be dismissed. But she did not say when she would rule. Jorge De La Rosa Jersey . Thousands of Southern California fans enveloped the Trojans to celebrate an improbable win secured by an interim coach, an inconsistent kicker and a thin defence that wouldnt break. Youth Diamondbacks Jerseys . - Levi Browns tenure at left tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers is over before it even began. http://www.cheapdiamondbacksjerseyschina.com/jarrod-dyson-jersey/ . -- Jaye Marie Green shot a 4-under 68 on Thursday to increase her lead to five strokes after the second round of the LPGA Tours qualifying tournament. ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- No. 4 Michigan had its weakest passing performance in 15 years. Playing without Wilton Speight was quite a challenge.Fortunately for the Wolverines, senior running back DeVeon Smith had the best game of his career.Smith ran for two touchdowns in a 3:33 span late in the third quarter and finished with a career-high 158 yards rushing, helping Michigan shake off Indiana for a 20-10 win Saturday.John OKorn made his first start for the Wolverines (10-1, 7-1, No. 3 CFP), replacing their injured starting quarterback, and the redshirt junior struggled to lead an offense that was averaging 45 points and 232 yards passing.Luckily, our run game and our O-line had my back, OKorn said.Indeed.OKorn was 7 of 16 yards for just 59 yards, the fewest yards passing for Michigan since John Navarre threw for 58 in a win over Wisconsin on Nov. 17, 2001.Im not real pleased with the way I threw the ball, but thats part of the battling the elements, OKorn said on a blustery day that left the field covered in snow in the fourth quarter.OKorns best play was a 30-yard run, escaping a collapsed pocket on third down to set up Smiths shifty, 34-yard run on the next snap that put the Wolverines up 13-10 with 4:02 left in the third. Smiths 39-yard run later in the quarter made it 20-10.That was huge, Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said. We were struggling, making third-down conversions. And there was not just one, but two defenders pressuring John.For two-plus quarters, it looked as if the Hoosiers (5-6, 3-5) might earn one of the most significant wins in school history. Indiana has beaten only one top-five team, No. 3 Purdue in 1967, the last year it won at Michigan Stadium, in school history. The Hoosiers havent knocked off a top-10 team since beating No. 9 Ohio State in 1987.Indianas Richard Lagow was 14 of 29 for 191 yards and Devine Redding was held to 50 yards rushing on 22 carries a week after running for 108 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to then-No. 12 Penn State.Offense did some things they needed to against a great defense, Indiana coachh Kevin Wilson said. Randy Johnson Jersey. Just wasnt good enough.THE TAKEAWAYIndiana: The Hoosiers have been good enough to be competitive with ranked teams this season. Thats a sign of improvement, but theyre not celebrating keeping it close.We just got to find a way to finish, linebacker Tegray Scales said. We came out second half, didnt have the same juice we had at the beginning of the game.If Indiana avoids getting upset by rival Purdue at home, it will earn consecutive bowl bids for the first time since 1990 and 1991.Michigan: The Wolverines desperately need to get Speight healthy enough to play at No. 2 Ohio State next weekend. He beat out OKorn for the job this season behind closed doors at practice. In public, it was easy to see why Harbaugh chose Speight ahead of OKorn. The Houston transfer missed open receivers when he had time and looked flustered when his offensive line didnt do its job in pass protection.He did a lot of good things, Harbaugh insisted.POLL IMPLICATIONSDespite the relatively lackluster win, Michigan may stay where they are in The Associated Press college football poll and College Football Playoff rankings.MICHIGAN MANFormer LSU coach Les Miles , who played at Michigan and was a Bo Schembechler assistant, attended the game and reiterated his interest in coaching again.UP NEXTIndiana: The Boilermakers will have a shot to spoil the Hoosiers shot to become bowl eligible.Michigan: The Buckeyes are waiting, aiming for their fifth straight win in the series and 12th in 13 years. If the Wolverines pull off the upset, they will advance to the Big Ten title game with a chance to win their first Big Ten title since 2004 and earn a spot in the playoff.This one is for the all the marbles, Jabrill Peppers said.

g tournament. DAVIE, Fla. --

NATIONAL HARBOR, Maryland -- The Los Angeles Dodgers wasted little time making news at the baseball winter meetings, using the first day of the annual gathering of agents, team officials and media to announce the expected three-year deal for free-agent pitcher Rich Hill. Bob Gibson Jersey .The deal, which was agreed to this past weekend but not announced, is worth $48 million, sources told ESPNs Buster Olney.Its just the fan base thats there in L.A. and the passion that they have; the intensity to win, thats something that we wanted and something that we wanted to come back to, Hill said, referencing his family. We want to be a part of that; we want to bring a championship to L.A.Hill, 36, was a boon to the Dodgers down the stretch in 2016 after he was acquired via trade from the Oakland Athletics at the non-waiver trade deadline on Aug. 1, along with outfielder Josh Reddick. The Dodgers gave up minor league pitchers Jharel Cotton, Frankie Montas and Grant Holmes to make the swap.Hill eventually made six starts for the Dodgers after recovering from blister issues on his left hand, posting a 1.83 ERA in 43? innings. He was not scored upon in his first three starts in a Dodgers uniform, even pitching seven perfect innings at Miami on Sept. 10, in a game he eventually left after 89 pitches as a precaution because of his blister issue.In three postseason starts, Hill went 1-1 with a 3.46 ERA, pitching in the deciding Game 5 of the National League Division Series at Washington, and beating the Chicago Cubs in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series.I think anytime in free agency there are risks that you take, but so much of our confidence comes from knowing him, president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said. No matter how much work you do on a guy, its different once you experience it firsthand and be around it and see it. So having that chance and that opportunity for those three months is what gave us the confidence to bet on him in terms of the type of person he is, what kind of competitor, the work ethic, seeing that up close.Hill is expected to be the Dodgers No. 2 starter, behind staff ace Clayton Kershaw, putting a pair of left-handers atop the rotation.Rich is awesome; Im excited to have Rich Hill back, said Kershaw, who paid a brief visit to the winter meetings. He is so much fun to watch pitch with his competitiveness and fire. He cares and he wants to win and he wants to pitch well, and that is awesome to have. You really cant take that for granted. The guy he is off the field, in the clubhouse, I enjoy talking to him. Hes a fun guy. I consider him a friend, so were excited to have him back, for sure.Hill said working alongside Kershaw has been an inspiration and is one of the main reasons he wanted to return to the Dodgers.Being around the likes of Clayton Kershaw, watching the way the guy works, I bring him up specifically because of his intensity and his passion, Hill said. When he goes out there and pitches, its something that is contagious. Guys feed off that, and thats what you want. Thats what I hope every time that I go out there -- thats what I bring and hope that guys feed off of that.Hill was one of the three top in-house free agents the Dodgers were interested in retaining. He was considered one of the best starting pitchers available on the open market. The club continues to negotiate with the agents for third baseman Justin Turner and closer Kenley Jansen.
