NEW ORLEANS -- Theres no question which was the bigger shocker on opening night: the Golden State Warriors losing their home opener by 29 points to the San Antonio Spurs or the New Orleans Pelicans wasting a superhuman, 50-point, 16-rebound, seven-steal, four-block performance by Anthony Davis in a 107-102 home loss to Denver. Cheap Air Max 97 Blue China .The Warriors won that bar bet -- or actually lost it -- hands down.The new-look Warriors, with the gaudy addition of All-Star forward Kevin Durant, were not supposed to be 0-1 after going 39-2 on their home court last year en route to an NBA-record 73 regular-season victories.The Pelicans, with Davis as their only bankable star, were supposed to find creative ways to lose, and they came through with a whopper, squandering a stat line unique in NBA history.The two 0-1 teams will face each other Friday night at the Smoothie King Center, and they will be searching for early-season redemption.It was a slap in the face, Durant said after scoring 27 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in the loss to San Antonio. Woke us up a bit.Davis said after his 50-point opener -- only the third 50-point performance in an NBA season opener since 1963-64 -- that he expects to play as many minutes as Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry needs him to play, but he added he was due for a massage.Carrying the load of a lightweight roster may get pretty heavy, but Davis said no one is shedding tears for him. And, now, the wounded Warriors await.After what happened a few nights ago, we know that theyre going to come in hungry for a win, Davis said. Weve just got to come out prepared knowing those guys are going to take some bad shots and make them go in. Weve got to stay composed and not let that kill our spirit and let the momentum go to them.Gentry saw the Pelicans give up 60 first-half points against Denver before settling in and being more physical in the second half. He knows Golden State, for whom he coached as an assistant in 2014-15, will be looking to push the ball.Transition defense is going to be the key, Gentry said. Youve got to keep those guys out of the paint. The drive and kick is what they live on, spotting up at the 3-point line. People have to help on drives, and then they kick the ball and hit 3-point shots.This is the first of a three-game road trip for Golden State. The Warriors -- like the Pelicans -- were embarrassed on the boards in their opener, losing the battle to San Antonio 55-35, including a 21-8 edge on the offensive glass. In six of their nine regular-season losses last year, the Warriors were outrebounded. That was the case in seven of their nine postseason losses last year.Golden State also pushed the pace against San Antonio but committed 16 turnovers, which led to 17 Spurs points.For all their talent in one locker room, the Warriors still need continuity. They are breaking in six new players, including two new starters, Durant and center Zaza Pachulia.People dont value continuity enough, Golden State GM Bob Myers said. Its just so important -- experience together, continuity together. We will get there, but were not there now. People may rear back at that kind of comment, but its OK not to be a finished product in October.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - After starting Southeastern Conference play with a win over Georgia on Wednesday night, the Kentucky volleyball team made it two in a row by beating Mississippi State 3-1 (25-21, 22-25, 25-14, 26-24) on Sunday afternoon in Memorial Coliseum. The win is the sixth-consecutive overall for the Wildcats.Kentucky (9-4, 2-0 SEC) had 10 service aces in a match for the first time since 2013, with four different Wildcats recording an ace in the match. Sophomore setter Olivia Dailey accounted for four of those aces, while senior Anni Thomasson had three.It (the win) really started with our serving, UK coach Craig Skinner said. We got a lot more aggressive with our serving in that set (third), and it really gave us opportunities to score and get kills in transition. So, our serving pressure was certainly a difference after the break.Freshman Leah Edmond led the Wildcats with 14 kills, while junior Kaz Brown had 12 and sophomore Brooke Morgan added 10, matching her season high. Junior Emily Franklin posted nine and added a team-best five blocks.Dailey had 47 assists in the match, her second-highest total of the season. Dailey added four digs and four block assists in the match as well.Junior Ashley Dusek led the defensive charge for the Wildcats behind a season-best 27 digs. Thomasson added nine, while Edmond chipped in with eight. Sophomore McKenzie Watson contributed five on the afternoon. Kentucky has now limited six-straight opponents to a .162 attacking clip or lower as the Bulldogs managed just a .140 percentage in todays match.The thing that means most to me is we have a level of defense and serving that we can play and aspire to thats pretty high, Skinner said. Mississippi State throws a little bit of lightning speed at you, and youve got to be ready to make plays and anticipate. We responded when they played it to us in game two and Im proud of our players responding when we needed them to.Kentucky returns to action on Wednesday night, when the Wildcats travel to Gainesville, Florida, to face the sixth-ranked Florida Gators. The match is set to begin at 7 p.m. ET and can be seen on the SEC Network.SET RECAPSSet 1Kentucky jumped out to a quick 5-1 lead, with Edmond and Morgan both registering two kills early.

WASHINGTON -- T. Wholesale Shoes Black Friday .J. Rivera will not forget his first major league home run anytime soon.The rookie second baseman belted an 0-2 pitch off Mark Melancon into the left-field seats with one out in the 10th inning to lift the New York Mets to a 4-3 victory over the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.All I could do was go up there and try to have a good at-bat, Rivera said. He left something up and luckily I was able to put the barrel on it. That was pretty much my whole concept, my whole idea for that at-bat was really just compete because Id never faced him before.The Mets pulled within nine games of Washington in the NL East and remained a half-game ahead of St. Louis in the NL wild-card race. New York has won eight of its last 10 and is 17-6 since Aug. 20, gaining 3 1/2 games on Washington in that stretch.Jeurys Familia (3-3) earned the victory despite surrendering two runs in the ninth to blow his fourth save of the season. Left-hander Jerry Blevins struck out Daniel Murphy for the final out to earn his first save since 2012.I was trying to put it into play, said Murphy, who earlier had two hits and has hit safely against the Mets in 18 consecutive games this season. I was unsuccessful.Rivera, who won the Pacific Coast League batting title this season and entered the night with 41 career at-bats in the majors, probably would not have played if Wilmer Flores wasnt dealing with a stiff neck. Manager Terry Collins gave Rivera the start, and the move paid off even before the home run.Rivera had an RBI single in the third and a sacrifice fly in the fifth, then took Melancon (2-2) deep after the Nationals rallied to force extra innings.Somebody has to surprise you, Collins said. Somebody you dont expect has to come through, and tonight it was T.J.Washington mustered only four hits in the first eight innings, but quickly got to Familia in the ninth. Murphy led off with an infield single, and third baseman Jose Reyes threw Bryce Harpers grounder into the seats. Anthony Rendon and Wilson Ramos then delivered consecutive singles to tie it.Familia then got Ryan Zimmerman to line out and pinch-hitter Clint Robinson to hit a soft liner to second that fooled pinch-runner Wilmer Difo, who was doubled off first.We have arguably the best closer in the game and they hit four groundballs and three of them didnt get out of the infield and the games tied, Collins said. He was frustrated by it and we certainly understand it, but we wouldnt be sitting where we are without him.After Jayson Werths two-out single off Fernando Salas in the 10th brought the winning run to the plate, Collins called on Blevins. He got two strikes on Murphy, who then worked a full count before missing a curveball to end it.Hes so good and an MVP candidate for a reason, Blevins said. You try to take advantage of some aggressiveness and get him to swing at your pitch.Noah Syndergaard struck out 10 over seven innings for the Mets, yielding just one run and four hits.When you run probably your best pitcher out, you have to win that game, Collins said. You have to win this game tonight with Noah on the mound. He pitched great.Nationals starter A.J. Cole allowed three runs and nine hits in five innings.SYNDERGAARDS MILESTONESyndergaards 10-strikeout outing of the season gave him 205 for the season. The 24-year-old is the fifth Met to record 200 strikeouts at that age or younger, joining Tom Seaver (1968 and 1969), Jon Matlack (1973), Dwight Gooden (1984-86) and Sid Fernandez (1986).ZEROES FOR RZEPCZYNSKIWashington reliever Marc Rzepczynski retired the lone Met he faced and has not allowed an earned run in nine appearances since being acquired from Oakland on Aug. 25. Rzepczynski has yielded four hits and three walks in 8 1/3 innings since joining the Nationals.TRAINERS ROOMMets: INF Flores (stiff neck) remained out of the lineup and was going to try to hit in the batting cage before the game. Flores has not played since Saturday. ... OF Justin Ruggiano, on the DL since Aug. 27, underwent left shoulder surgery. He hit .350 with two homers in 20 at-bats this season.Nationals: 1B Zimmerman, who did not start the last two times Syndergaard pitched against Washington, was in the lineup against the right-hander. Zimmerman entered the night 1 for 8 lifetime against Syndergaard and went 1 for 3 against him.UP NEXTMets: RHP Robert Gsellman (2-1, 3.92) faces Washington for the second time this month. The rookie allowed one run in six innings to earn the victory against the Nationals on Sept. 3.Nationals: RHP Tanner Roark (14-8, 2.85), who has quality starts in seven of his last nine outings, starts the finale of the three-game series for Washington.

"I think its a good thing. CINCINNATI -- Something about the Bengals doesnt add up.The defending AFC North champions were among the leagues best in the first half of last season, when they won their first eight games.In what amounts to a full season since, theyve gone 7-9-1 -- including a playoff loss to Pittsburgh -- and no longer have the look of a contender.They entered their bye this week at 3-4-1 following a 27-27 tie with Washington in London. A team that has reached the playoffs five consecutive seasons -- and lost in the first round each time -- is in danger of not even making it that far.Weve got the guys in the locker room to do it, we just havent done it, running back Jeremy Hill said. So we can talk about it all we want, but until we go out there and do it, it doesnt mean a thing.The Bengals have a losing record even though theyve been one of the most fortunate teams in the league with injuries. Theyre basically at full strength now that tight end Tyler Eifert has returned from ankle surgery.I feel like we should be leading the division right now, cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. Its not a long season (left), but we have a lot of games to make up for the early bumps in the road.There might be some changes in the second half, particularly on the defense.The Bengals returned the nucleus of a unit that gave up the second-fewest points in the league last season. It ranks only 21st this season and is on pace to give up nearly 100 more points than last season.The stars of the defense are having subpar years. Linemen Geno Atkins, Carlos Dunlap, Domata Peko and Michael Johnson combined for 34+ sacks last season; theyre on pace for 19 combined this season.Atkins, a two-time All-Pro tackle, had 11 sacks last season; he has only 3+ this season. Dunlap is down from a career-high 13+ to five.Its not only on the line. The linebackers and defensive backs have struggled, too.Defensive coordinator Paul Guenther is using the bye week to evaluate each players performance and decide whether a younger player might deserve more time at their position.Some of the guys that have been here, that have been fixtures here, for some reason orr another, whether its age or whatever it is, they are not playing at a high level, Guenther said. Discount Shoes Black Friday. And Ive got to figure out where I can inject some other guys that can do it better or at least try to.The Bengals thought that the defense would improve when linebacker Vontaze Burfict returned from a three-game suspension for illegal hits. He is third on the team in tackles and has one sack, but hasnt made much of an overall difference.Cincinnati has given up 400 yards in three of the past four games. The only exception was a win over Cleveland in which the winless Browns rushed for 180 yards. Last season, the Bengals allowed 400 total yards only once.The offense is starting to look more formidable with Eifert back. He set a club record for a tight end with 13 touchdown catches last season.The offense was among the worst in the league at scoring inside the opponents 20-yard line while he was recovering from ankle surgery. In his first extended playing time, he caught nine passes for 102 yards and a touchdown against Washington.The running game also has improved lately after struggling through the first part of the season. The Bengals scored a season high in points during a 31-17 win over Cleveland, followed by the 27-point performance against Washington.We havent scored enough points we need for us to win games, and we all know that, Hill said. We know we have the talent in the locker room, especially with Tyler back. We saw what he can do. No reasons and excuses, we have to go out there and do it.With so many starters back from last seasons team that ran off eight straight wins, the Bengals figure theyve got a chance to have a strong second half. They play Baltimore twice, host the first-place Steelers and play at Cleveland, so the division title is still a possibility.We did it last year, Kirkpatrick said. I dont see any reason why we cant do it this year. Same guys.But so far, different results.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '

Subscribe today!Minnesota VikingsOverall: 50 Title track: 74 Ownership: 41 Coaching: 12 Players: 35 Fan relations: 60 Affordability: 83 Stadium experience: 24 Bang for the buck: 35 Change from last year: +36A 36-spot jump in these rankings is no small feat, but even more impressive: a 71-spot jump in stadium experience (the Vikings trailed only the Packers in the NFL in votes on a great stadium). And thanks to an 11-5 2015 record and a playoff berth, the Vikes saw a 45-spot increase in bang for the buck. All things considered, the Vikings are on their way up -- in these standings and, perhaps, the NFC North.Whats goodLast year, Mike Zimmer became the first coach in NFL history to lead a team to a division title while playing in a temporary stadium. The Vikings response? Giving Zimmer, originally on contract through 2017, an extension that adds a reported two years to his deal. Vikings fans, too, showed their love: Zimmer jumped 15 spots in these rankings, all the way to 15th overall. Fans have swooned over Zimmers blunt, candid style, and under his leadership the Vikings jumped from 32nd to fifth in points against. The Vikings bowed out of the playoffs after one round last season, and if Zimmer patches together another playoff team after injuries to running back Adrian Peterson, left tackle Matt Kalil and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, he may make believers out of the few remaining holdouts.Whats badNew stadiums are expensive, and as many teams have, the Vikings asked fans to shoulder a large chunk of the cost. Ticket prices remain around the NFL average, at $85, but its one of just two areas in these rankings in which fans placed the Vikings in the bottom half. The team did roll out a personal seat license program to cover $125 million of U.S. Bank Stadiums $1.1 billion cost, but the prices of concessions (though the Vikings still have the NFLs cheapest hot dog, at $3.00) and many of the stadiums better seats have jumped.Whats newFor perhaps the first time in their history (unless you accept the theory that the Metrodome was cutting-edge for a few years in the early 1980s), the Vikings have a state-of-the-art stadium to call their own. Thats no small feat to Minnesota fans, who bumped up the teams Stadium Experience an astonishing 71 spots. U.S. Bank Stadium opened with some logistical hiccups, but offers striking views of downtown Minneapolis and plenty of natural light through the clear roof on the stadiums south side. The stadium also offers the closest seats to the field in the NFL, and some unique high-end seating areas -- like the fantasy sports lounge with couch seating and table service.Next: Atlanta Falcons?| Full rankings Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping .

HOUSTON -- As the No. Fake College Jerseys . 9 Texas A&M Aggies take a break from the rigors of Southeastern Conference to host New Mexico State on Saturday, they are far more worried about improving than they are about their opponent.And thats not simply because theyre 48 1/2-point favorites.Our identity as a team this year is playing the next week, quarterback Trevor Knight said. Its about us and a nameless, faceless opponent. And thats no disrespect to who were playing, but we want to worry about us and play as best we can.The Aggies are looking to rebound after taking their first loss of the season last week in a 33-14 defeat at top-ranked Alabama . Linebacker Justin Evans said its easier to move on from that game since a single loss to the No. 1 team could still give them an outside chance at the College Football Playoff.We know with just one loss we can still do a lot, Evans said. We dont want to look too far ahead, but in the back of our mind we know that were still playing for something so its going to be there.Texas A&M returns to SEC play next week with a trip to Mississippi State before hosting Mississippi on Nov. 12.But first theyll meet New Mexico State for the first time. New Mexico State has had a tough time this season with just two wins and is coming off a 22-19 loss to Georgia Southern.New Mexico State coach Doug Martin knows things will be tough for his offense on Saturday in facing a defense led by Myles Garrett and Daeshon Hall . New Mexico State is tied for 111th in the nation after allowing 21 sacks this season. Texas A&M has piled up 23 sacks, which ranks 12th in the country. Garrett leads the Aggies with four sacks and Hall and Jarrett Johnson have 3 1/2 each. Garrett and Hall have also combined for 18 quarterback hurries.The two defensive ends are first round draft picks so its going to be a real challenge for our offense to move the football, Martin said. But were a pretty good offensive football team so looking forward to that challenge.Some other things to know about the game:RUNNING WILDTexas A&M ranks third in the nation by averaging 251.4 yards rushing a game. The Aggies success has come from splitting carries between freshman Trayveon Williams and Keith Ford and with quite a bit of help from Knight. Williams leads the team with 727 yards rushing and Ford has added 304 yards rushing. Knight has 526 yards rushing and leads the team with nine rushing scores.Ford, who has missed time with an injury this season, impressed coach Kevin Sumlin by leading the team with 62 yards rushing against Alabama.At beginning of year I said wed need all the backs, Sumlin said. All provide change of pace for difference defenses. That was more of a Keith Ford-style of football game and I think you saw that. His experience in those situations showed. Way he runs showed. Physical, tough guy in that situation, a different back than Trayveon.TEAM STRENGTHNew Mexico State has seven different players who have at least 150 yards receiving this season, giving quarterback Tyler Rogers plenty of targets each week. The group is led by Gregory Hogan, who has 26 receptions for 335 yards and three touchdowns and Tyrian Taylor with 304 yards receiving.Our offensive kids have a lot of confidence, Martin said. We have a really good group of wide receivers that can really compete against anybody and it kind of gives us an edge.WE HAVE GOOD RECEIVERS, TOONew Mexico State isnt the only one with a solid group of receivers as the Aggies receivers might be the strength of A&Ms offense. Josh Reynolds has 515 yards receiving and five scores and Christian Kirk also has five touchdowns and has added 410 yards receiving. Ricky Seals-Jones missed two games with an injury before returning last week against Alabama and has 200 yards receiving.I still say thats the best receiving corps in the country, Knight said of A&Ms receivers. And theyve proven that time and time again, and its just getting the ball in their hands and being more consistent.PILING `EM UPNew Mexico State linebacker Rodney Butler leads the nation with 102 tackles. Butler had a season-high 24 tackles against New Mexico on Sept. 10 and has had at least 12 tackles in all but one game this year.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Wholesale NCAA Jerseys .C.

A letter drafted by U.S. and Canadian anti-doping leaders urging Russias removal from the upcoming Olympics is circulating days before the public release of a report expected to detail a state-sponsored doping system that corrupted the countrys entire sports program.The letter, drafted last week and obtained by The Associated Press, is being prepared to possibly be sent to the International Olympic Committees president and executive board after the Monday release of a report by investigator Richard McLaren.The letter, which U.S. Anti-Doping Agency officials say would only be sent if the report details widespread, state-sponsored doping in Russia, calls for the IOC to act by July 26 to ensure that Russias Olympic Committee and sports federations will not be allowed in Rio de Janeiro, where the games are set to start on Aug. 5.The letter encourages exceptions for Russia-born athletes who can prove they were subject to strong anti-doping systems in other countries.A statement from Pat Hickey, the president of the European Olympic Committee, said the letter undermined the integrity and therefore the credibility of this important report.My concern is that there seems to have been an attempt to agree (on) an outcome before any evidence has been presented, Hickey said.USADA CEO Travis Tygart said the letter, which has backing from anti-doping agencies in at least six countries and athlete groups from around the world, was drafted with no intent for it to become public unless the McLaren report contains evidence of a major state-sponsored doping program.Of course, we want and hope for universal inclusion, but were not blind to the evidence already out there, Tygart said. And if were not preparing for all potential outcomes, then we are not fulfilling our promise to clean athletes.The McLaren report was sparked by a New York Times story accusing the Russian government of helping to manipulate tests at the Sochi Games to ensure cheaters wouldnt get caught.Preliminary findings from the report, released last month, found mandatory state-directed manipulation of laboratory analyytical results operating within the Moscow anti-doping lab from at least 2011 through the summer of 2013.

Those findings also said Russias Ministry of Sport advised the laboratory which of its adverse findings it could report to WADA, and which it had to cover up.Based in part on that information, the letter to the IOC anticipates that the McLaren report will show the Russian government helped organize a systematic undermining of the drug testing of Russian athletes for many years in a successful effort to cheat to win.The AP also obtained a letter written by Beckie Scott, head of the athlete committee of the World Anti-Doping Agency, urging athletes to sign onto the U.S.-Canada letter. Scott informs athletes that, in addition to support from Tygart and Canadas anti-doping head, Paul Melia, the letter also has backing from anti-doping agencies in Germany, New Zealand, Japan, France, Denmark and Norway.Last week, IOC President Thomas Bach said it was important to strike the right balance between collective responsibility and individual justice in dealing with results from the McLaren report.It is obvious that you cannot sanction or punish a badminton player for infringement of rules or manipulation by an official or lab director in the Winter Games, Bach said.Already, tracks governing body, the IAAF, has suspended Russias track team from the Olympics after a separate investigation turned up evidence of a state-sponsored doping system used to benefit that team. The Court of Arbitration for Sport is expected to rule July 21 on the eligibility of 68 Russian athletes who have appealed to compete in Rio.McLaren was given permission to look into all Russian sports, and the letter being drafted for the IOC is written in case the report shows many of them have been corrupted.We agree and believe a full suspension is the only available and appropriate result having regard to the findings and conclusions set out in the report, it said.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. China Jerseys Online . -- Linebacker Jerrell Freeman on Monday became the second Chicago Bears player suspended for violating the leagues performance-enhancing drug policy in as many weeks.Freeman was suspended for four weeks and is eligible to return to practice before the Dec. 24 home game against the Washington Redskins. Freeman, in his first year in Chicago after signing as a free agent, leads the Bears with 69 tackles and with 22 assists.He apologized and said he took full responsibility for a mistake with my prescription medication. Last week, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was suspended four games for the same violation and will be eligible to return for the Dec. 18 game against Green Bay.Obviously it puts us in a tough spot, coach John Fox said a day after his team lost 22-16 to the New York Giants . Thats why you usually see apologies, I think they understand that and its obviously a mistake and one they typically regret.These guys understand all the parameters of the drug testing involved in our league, Fox added. But much like Alshon, we move on and well move on without Jerrell.Despite the pair of suspension in such a short time, Fox said he didnt think it was a problem specific to Chicago.Its an issue everywhere in the league, he said. Thats why we have drug testing in any professional sport or even Olympic sports. It happens, unfortunately.Without Freeman, the Bears will turn to either John Timu or Nick Kwiatkoski alongside Danny Trevathan at inside linebacker.For me, I know what type of person Jerrell is, Bears tackle Charles Leno Jr. said. He made a mistake, he owned up to it and I forgive him. Its a loss that were going to have on the defensive side of the ball, but that gives opportunities for guys like Nick to step up, so Im excited to see Nick play this week if he gets the opportunity, and John Timu.The suspensions come at a poor time for the Bears, who lost tight end Zach Miller to a broken right foot against the Giants as they dropped to 2-8. They also lost several other players in the game, including rookie linebacker Leonard Floyd to a scary neck injury. Floyd was put on a stretcher and taken to a hospital.Fox said the teams top draft choice was feeling better and made it to the team charter for the return to Chicago on Sunday night. Fox said its too early to tell whether Floyd could play Sunday at Soldier Field against Tennessee.I think hes got some neck soreness, hes in the concussion protocol, Fox said. The real serious stuff is behind him.Fox also said star right guard Kyle Long will have surgery on his right ankle next Monday. The three-time Pro Bowl lineman was hurt in last weeks loss at Tampa Bay and placed on injured reserve.Fox said Long will have surgery to repair a left shoulder injury he has been dealing with since the preseason in the distant future.Game notes G Josh Sitton (ankle) and CB CreVon LeBlanc (concussion) also were injured Sunday, and Fox had no further news on the severity of their injuries. ... The Bears waived DL Jimmy Staten. In his third season, Staten has not appeared in a regular-season game with the Kansas City Chiefs (2015-16), New England Patriots (2015), New York Giants (2015), Seattle Seahawks (2014-15) and Chicago Bears (2016).---More AP NFL coverage: http://pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap China Jerseys .4 million title.

They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer doesnt want the Green Bay Packers to know who his starting quarterback will be. Hes committed enough to that goal that the Vikings players might not know who their starting quarterback is before Sunday night.Zimmer said again Wednesday he wont reveal whether Shaun Hill or Sam Bradford will start against the Packers, as the team continues its shell game with the two quarterbacks for another week.The Vikings started Hill in their season-opening win over the Tennessee Titans, eight days after they traded for Bradford following Teddy Bridgewaters season-ending knee injury. Zimmer told players last Thursday that Hill would start. Word leaked of the decision on Friday, and Zimmer said he was irked enough that hes considering keeping the information from his players so it doesnt get out again.Typically I do [tell the players], Zimmer said in a conference call with Green Bay media on Wednesday. I did last week. I dont know if I will this week or not because it started leaking. Usually I like to inform the team of everything thats going on here and what Im thinking, but I was a little disappointed that some of the things go out. Well just see hhow it goes. NFL China Jerseys. I may talk to them. I dont know. Maybe I will.Packers coach Mike McCarthy said its his understanding that Bradford will start, adding that the subterfuge amounts to little more than a nuisance in the preparation process.It lengthens it some, but its still part of your process, McCarthy said. Its no different than if one was starting and the backup came in because the starter was sick right before the game. You have to be prepared for everybody that you anticipate being on their 46-man roster -- and Im not trying to just throw water on it, either. The quarterback position is the most important position in football, so it just lengthens your process. Weve got to make sure were ready for Sam, and make sure were ready for Shaun.Hill threw for 236 yards in the Vikings win over the Titans, and Bradford was active as the second-string quarterback.The team gave up its 2017 first-round pick and a conditional 2018 fourth-rounder for Bradford after Bridgewater tore multiple ligaments in his knee in a noncontact play during the Vikings Aug. 30 practice.

ST. Vapormax Plus Moins Cher . LOUIS -- To hear Kendrys Morales tell it, luck is finally on his side.But the Kansas City Royals designated hitter/outfielder has been more than just lucky the past week.Morales homered and recorded his sixth straight multi-hit game on Thursday to lead the Royals to a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.Kansas City won for the fourth time in five games and took the two-city, four-game series three games to one.Things are falling for me, Morales said.Indeed.Brandon Moss and Jhonny Peralta homered for the Cardinals who have lost their last seven home games -- their longest losing streak since Aug. 2-15, 1983.Wade Davis recorded his 19th save in 21 opportunities.Morales, a designated hitter playing right field for the second straight night, doubled in the sixth inning off Mike Leake (5-6) to push the lead to 3-1. Morales, who went 3 for 4, has 16 hits in 24 at-bats over the six-game run. He went 12 for 16 in the series and started in the outfield for the first time since 2008.Since going 1 for 15 in a four-game set with Cleveland on June 2-5, Morales has been on fire. He was hitting .191 on June 5, but has gone 32 of 69 since to push his average to .262.I felt like before, I was making good contact, Morales said. It was just a combination of bad luck that played into it as well.His six-game multi-hit streak ties him for the longest this season along with J.D.

Hes been getting great at-bats.Morales is 25 of 53 (.472) lifetime against the Cardinals with five homers and 13 RBI. His 456-foot drive in the eighth inning off Tyler Lyons ties him for the longest home run by a visiting player at Busch Stadium III, which opened in 2006.Kansas City reliever Dillon Gee (3-2) picked up the win allowing one run in two innings.Moss ripped his 17th homer of the season off Royals starter Chris Young, who gave up one run and one hit over four innings, but walked six.The drive, which went 477 feet according to the Cardinals, is the longest in the history of Busch Stadium. It is the second-longest this season behind Giancarlo Stantons 490-foot blast for Miami on May 6, in a 6-4 win over Philadelphia.I hit it hard, Moss said. I know Im strong and I know how far I can hit it when I get a hold of one.Leake gave up three runs, two earned, in seven innings. He struck out four and walked one.There were a couple of pitches Id like to take back, Leake said.Kansas City pushed across an unearned run in the first before Jarrod Dyson doubled in Alcides Escobar in the second.Gees victory gives the Royals bullpen a 16-5 (.762) mark, the highest percentage in the majors.

Everyone can exhale -- the weekend is here. This Saturdays slate isnt the most stacked one weve seen, but with a pair of bona fide aces on top and a decent number of intriguing options in the middle and lower tiers, theres still plenty to like. Lets get started with the guy who figures to anchor most cash-game lineups.PitchingEliteMax Scherzer is the days top cash game play, and its really not close. Since June 1, the right-hander holds a 2.10 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 11.6 K/9. With a road matchup against the Braves, who have the worst offense in baseball against right-handed pitching, Scherzer is sitting pretty and should be locked into cash lineups. The only drawback is that the Braves arent a big strikeout team. Then again, with the second-best whiff rate in the majors, Scherzer carries double-digit strikeout upside into every matchup regardless of opponent.Chris Sale also finds himself in an enticing spot, facing off against an As team thats below average versus lefty pitching. However, he plays second fiddle to Scherzer on Saturday. The southpaw is still whiffing nearly a batter per inning this season (8.8 K/9), but thats a far cry from the elite whiff rates he has posted in previous years. Like the Braves, the As make a lot of contact, so while Sale will provide plenty of value in terms of run prevention, the strikeout upside is lagging behind what Scherzer brings to the table.SolidIts true that Felix Hernandez is no longer a fantasy ace. His strikeout rate has collapsed this season (7.7 K/9), and his 4.0 BB/9 walk is by far a career worst. That said, the right-hander been pitching better of late, as Felixs last four starts have seen him put up a 3.04 ERA with 30 Ks in 26 2/3 innings. Theres plenty to like here against a Brewers team that doesnt hit right-handed pitching well (86 wRC+) and whiffs at a bloated 26 percent clip.Its not often that youll see Robbie Ray highlighted as one of the days more intriguing options, but hey, thats what a matchup against the Padres will do. Ray has quietly been one of the games best strikeout pitchers this season, as his 10.9 K/9 ranks top-five in baseball. Pair that with a Padres team that strikes out 25 percent of the time against lefties, and youve got yourself a very appealing tournament play. Keep in mind, though, that while the Padres are one of the worst teams in baseball against right-handed pitching (82 wRC+), theyve actually hit lefties pretty hard this year (109 wRC+), so theres risk here in cash.After struggling in his first few starts with his new team, Drew Pomeranz has settled in with the Red Sox, posting a 2.37 ERA over his last three outings. In his last start, he gave up only two runs over 7 2/3 innings against the Indians, a team thats hard on left-handed pitchers. Still, its hard to feel great about Pomeranz matching up against the Tigers, who are above average against southpaws and have plenty of guys who can hit the ball out of the park. If youre considering Pomeranz as a tournament play, its worth nothing that, despite his 9.8 K/9, he hasnt whiffed more than seven in a game since May.Matt Moore owned a 7.5 K/9 with Tampa Bay before being traded, but he has whiffed 19 batters in 18 innings since joining the Giants. On Saturday, he gets a home date with a middle-of the-road Mets offense that whiffs 22 percent of the time versus lefties. Moore makes for a solid SP2 if youre paying up for your first hurler.Jake Odorizzi is on a nice little run. Over his last six starts, he has posted a 1.66 ERA and 1.05 WHIP, which includes three straight starts in late July and early August in which he didnt give up a single run. With the Rangers coming to town, Odorizzi gets a Texas team thats below average against righties (93 wRC+) and has really struggled offensively in August (85 wRC+). Hes in the cash game discussion.Aaron Sanchez draws a tough road matchup against an Indians team that doesnt go easy on righties (108 wRC+) and has been crushing in the second half (120 wRC+). So theres certainly no shame in simply avoiding Sanchez on Saturday. Of course, Sanchez has been matchup proof over the last few months. Over his last 10 starts, he has given up more than two runs only once, and that includes eight innings of one-run ball against the Rockies in Coors Field. He remains cash viable Saturday.StreamersDavid Phelps has made only three starts since joining Miamis rotation, but he has been impressive in limited action. While he hasnt pitched more than 5 1/3 innings in any outing, he has given up only three runs in 14 2/3 innings (1.84 ERA) and racked up 17 Ks. On Saturday, Phelps and the Marlins head to Pittsburgh to face a hot Pirates team that has won nine of its last 12 games. That said, the Pirates lineup has been middle-of-the-road versus righties this season and has actually been well below average since the All-Star break (88 wRC+), so this is a decent spot for the Marlins right-hander. Vapormax 2020. Phelps is ripe for the picking in 83 percent of ESPN.com leagues.A free agent in more than half of leagues, Ian Kennedy draws a home date with the Twins. The righty has been dealing of late, as he has given up only three combined runs over his last four starts. Hes also striking out nearly a batter per inning (8.9 K/9). The Twins offense has really been clicking in the second half (110 wRC+), but Minnesota has still been merely average against right-handers this season (99 wRC+). I like Kennedy as a streaming option and also think he has appeal as an SP2 in DFS.The big league debut for Luke Weaver was a bit of a mixed bag, as he lasted only four innings and struggled with his control. Granted, he was facing a Cubs lineup thats one of the toughest in baseball. The rookie will have some smoother sledding Saturday, as he lines up against the Phillies, who cant hit righties (82 wRC+) and are whiffing 23 percent of the time so far in the second half. Weaver still likely wont pitch deep into the game, but he should find success in this favorable matchup.AvoidA decent game score of 55 might draw some attention, but theres little reason to consider Hector Santiago on Saturday. While its true that the Royals offense hasnt been anything special against lefties this year, Santiago has been too much of a liability lately. He has failed to register a quality start in six straight outings, and the Royals are actually the team that roughed him up his last time out (7 ER in 4 IP). A struggling hurler with walk and homer issues is not someone in whom you want to invest.Despite posting Triple-A peripherals eerily close to what Jon Gray has done in the majors this season, its best to take the wait-and-see approach with Jeff Hoffman, as he makes his big league debut in Coors Field. Perhaps if he were facing someone other than the Chicago Cubs, the message would be different.HittingWith A.J. Griffin taking the mound for the Rangers on Saturday, its a good time to get some exposure to left-handed Tampa bats. Griffin has been torched by lefty hitters this season, giving up a .403 wOBA and 13 homers in 41 innings. Brad Miller, who has hit 23 of his 25 homers off righties, is the top play, and?Kevin Kiermaier, Logan Morrison and Corey Dickerson are options, too.Youll also want some exposure to Nationals hitters, who are squaring off against Tyrell Jenkins. The righty has put up a 5.06 ERA since the break, he has walked more than he has struck out, and both right- (.366 wOBA) and left-handed batters (.356) have hit him hard. Dont discriminate against Washington hitters without the platoon advantage: Theyre all in play here.Its not difficult to see the appeal in targeting hitters against Wily Peralta. After all, the right-hander owns a 6.00 ERA and 1.74 WHIP in 15 starts this season, and he has been clobbered by left- and right-handed hitters alike (.393 wOBA and .404 wOBA, respectively). Seth Smith, Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager are all intriguing options in this one. Take your pick.The usual small sample size caveats apply, but through six starts, Chad Kuhl has done a splendid job suppressing right-handed bats (.226 wOBA), but lefty swingers have consistently gotten the better of him (.374 wOBA). Well have to wait and see whether the trend continues long term, but its something to take advantage of for the time being. With the Marlins in town, take a look at Dee Gordon, Christian Yelich and Derek Dietrich.Brett Anderson made his season debut on Sunday after missing the first four and half months of the season as he recovered from back surgery. His return didnt go well, as he gave up five runs in only one inning before leaving the game because of a sprained left wrist. Anderson has been cleared to return to the mound Saturday in Cincinnati, but theres a good chance he still has some rust to knock off. As a result, I like right-handed bats Zack Cozart, Adam Duvall, Brandon Phillips and Eugenio Suarez in this matchup.Most likely to go yard: Brad MillerMiller has been scorching hot of late, batting .327 with 11 bombs in only 30 second-half games. Look for him to continue his home run onslaught Saturday against Griffin, who has been punished by lefties this year.Most likely to swipe a bag: Dexter FowlerRockies catcher Nick Hundley has been an easy target behind the plate this year, as hes thrown out just six of 46 potential basestealers. With the Cubs coming to town, the leadoff hitting Fowler is the most likely to pilfer a bag. ' ' '
EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Atlanta Braves Store .J. -- New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski left Sundays 22-17 win over the New York Jets late in the first quarter with a back injury, and early in the third quarter it was announced he would not return.Up to that point, Gronkowski had been charted on the field for seven of a possible 12 snaps.It was unclear what play might have led to the injury, although Gronkowski was the intended receiver on two long incomplete passes in the first quarter. On one of them, a third-and-7 play with 9 minutes, 4 seconds remaining, Gronkowski landed hard on the ground.He was back on the field for the following series, however, playing four of five snaps. On the final play, on third-and-7, Gronkowski was the intended receiver up the right sideline on a play in which Jets cornerback Darryl Roberts was in coverage. Roberts might have been fortunate to avoid being called for pass interference, as he appeared to have a hold of Gronkowskis arm; the pass was incomplete, with Gronkowski unable to come up with a one-handed catch.That was Gronkowskis last play before heading to the locker room.Gronkowski had been returning to action after missing last Sundays victory over the San Francisco 49ers with a chest injury.

General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff says the rest of the coaching staff will also be offered some job security as well. "You deal with whats right in front of you and the coaching staff now has got an extension to move forward beyond this season and thats something that we all feel comfortable with," Cheveldayoff said Monday. Noel is entering his third season with the team and the one-year extension will take him to the end of the 2014-15 NHL season. Cheveldayoff and Noel said the fact that it was only a one-year extension wasnt that big a deal. "The term really doesnt determine how you do that job. For me the extension is great," said Noel. "Would you rather have a longer term? I think this is fine." Noel led the Jets to a 24-21-3 record last season as Winnipeg finished ninth in the Eastern Conference, four points behind the New York Islanders for the final playoff spot. He coached the Jets to a 37-35-10 record in 2011-12, the clubs first season in Winnipeg after relocating from Atlanta, also missing the playoffs. The former Thrashers havent seen the playoffs since the 2006-07 season, when they were swept in the quarter-finals by the New York Rangers. "I clearly see that we have to make the playoffs but its not easy to make the playoffs," the coach said Monday on a conference call. Prior to the Jets arrival, Noel coached the American Hockey Leagues Manitoba Moose to the second round of the Calder Cup playoffs in 2010-11. Before moving to Winnipeg, he spent four seasons in Columbus as an assistant coach and was head coach for the final 24 games of the 2009-10 seasson after Ken Hitchcock was fired. Braves Jerseys China. The Blue Jackets went 10-8-6 over that span but Noels contract was not renewed. Cheveldayoff also talked about the upcoming NHL draft and his dealings with both restricted and unrestricted free agents. He says the team would like to move up from their current 13th pick in the entry draft but there are also teams lower down that would like to move up as well. There is the potential for deals either way. He has started talks with all the teams restricted free agents and is looking to get them signed. As for unrestricted free agents, they have had some discussions with defenceman Grant Clitsome and goaltender Al Montoya about returning. As for the others, such as defenceman Ron Hainsey, Cheveldayoff said he expects they may try the market but he didnt rule out some returning. He still wants to add depth at forward but with the 13th pick, says its difficult to know who might be available. They will take the best player they can get. Centre Mark Scheifele, their top 2011 draft pick, is expected to join the team this season after playing the last two seasons with his junior squad in Barrie. With so many players able to move, exactly what Noel will have to work with this season is up in the air. "Were not quire sure where our roster is right now but that will be determined through time." He says they still have to work on being more consistent and improving their goals for and against average, but he sees lots of room for growth. "I like our team. I like our players. I like a lot of what they bring to the table," he said. Next season the Jets also move to the Western Conference. "It will be a fun time for us and a big challenge," said Noel. ' ' '

Pence singled in the winning run with no outs in the ninth inning to give the Giants a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals had a decision to make before hosting the Cincinnati Reds in the series finale on Sunday at Nationals Park.And the Nationals were in the situation of having to choose between using unbeaten pitcher Stephen Strasburg (10-0, 2.90) or top pitching prospect Lucas Giolito (0-0, 0.00) to start against the last-place Reds.That is a choice that many teams wish they had to make.Its not up to me, its up to how Strasburg feels, manager Dusty Baker before Saturdays game. Right now hes feeling pretty good, but the decision will probably be made tomorrow. It might be a gametime decision.After the game, Baker said: Were getting one of our main men Stras back tomorrow. He can put us back in sync for the remainder of the first half.Strasburg, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 draft, went on the disabled list June 26, retroactive to June 16, with an upper back strain. If he comes off the DL to pitch Sunday, the Nationals will have to make a roster move.His place in the rotation was filled on Tuesday by Giolito, another former first-round pick who went four innings and allowed just one hit against the New York Mets in a rain-shortened outing.It was the first big league appearance for Giolito, considered the top pitching prospect in the minors this year.The big right-hander from Los Angeles had never pitched above Double-A Harrisburg before he was called up to start against the Mets.
