double-play relay Antworten

WINNIPEG -- For veteran receiver Terrence Edwards, a season like the one the Winnipeg Blue Bombers just ended is about as depressing as it gets. Edwards and his teammates cleared out their lockers Sunday after finishing 3-15, tied for the teams worst ever record in the 18-game CFL, capped with a crushing 37-7 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Looking up from the CFL cellar isnt where a receiver who has spent nine seasons in the league -- seven with the Bombers -- wants to be at the age of 34. "It hurts," said the softspoken native of Tennille, Ga. "Could it be my last season? . . . Im planning on returning next year but you never know what will happen, this is professional sports. "It would be a sad thing if I left Winnipeg with this taste in my mouth." Despite injuries that limited his playing time, Edwards finished second on the Winnipeg receiving yards list in 2013 with 549. Its a far cry from his three previous 1,000-yard plus seasons but this year the team also had a revolving door at quarterback, as they tried to find some consistency. They dumped Buck Pierce, struggled behind a series of backups, and landing a legitimate starter is job one for whoever is leading the Bombers into next season. With five head coaches in nine years, plus changes at other key spots, consistency throughout the organization seems lacking. General manager Joe Mack and sophomore president Garth Buchko paid with their jobs for the teams struggles. Coach Tim Burke doesnt know what the future will hold for him. This was his first full season after taking over mid-2012 from Paul LaPolice. But he agrees stability and success seem to go together in the CFL. "I think if you look at the teams that are most successful, theyre the most stable," he said in what, for now at least, was his last scheduled meeting with reporters. "If you look at Calgary, I think theyre very stable outfit. B.C., very stable. Through the years Montreal has been very stable. It usually starts at the very top." The very top right now isnt all that stable either. Team president Wade Miller, a former player, and general manager Kyle Walters both have "acting" in front of their titles. And they not only need to add new talent, theyll have a struggle hanging on to some of the best now wearing a Bomber jersey. Receiver Chris Matthews, the CFLs outstanding rookie in 2012, spent this season on the injury list. But as a free agent hell be trying his luck in the NFL before he thinks about returning to the CFL. Henoc Muamba, the teams most outstanding defensive player and a Canadian to boot, has yet to commit to returning. "Its still too soon. Negotiations are still in process, my agent is taking care of that, and were taking it one day at a time," he said Sunday. A lot of fingers have been pointed at the self-perpetuating board of the community-owned team for not making better decisions. They werent confined to whos running the team. The new $200-million stadium the Bombers finally opened a year late this season also came with more headaches. An open-air pressbox at Investors Group Field, for example, needs a $400,000 refit before the CFL will approve a Grey Cup for the city, which the team would like to land in 2015 or 2016. A lack of planning saw many fans tied up in traffic for hours as they tried to make their way through the few congested roads that allow access to the stadium site, the campus of the University of Manitoba. Those fans would have been a lot happier about the cracked concrete they stepped over when they finally did get to their seats if they had a team capable of winning more than one home game. If there is a bright side to the disaster this season brought, it may be that major change is unavoidable. And that the stars are aligned to make it easier. "Sometimes it does take something like this to create change," says veteran offensive lineman Glenn January, who, like Edwards, doesnt want to end his career on such a low note. "I think there is going to be change across the league with the expansion draft. Well have to wait and see." The Bombers could learn a little from other teams, suggests Edwards. "I just think some of the philosophies that weve had the last years havent worked," he says. "Kyle Walters, if hes the new GM, and Wade need to look at the models some of the other CFL teams have ... and try to emulate some of those things they have done. "Apparently it works for them. What we did, didnt." Scarpe Nike Outlet .

NEW YORK -- John Ryan Murphy spent a while in the minors catching Dellin Betances, hoping they could someday contribute on a higher level. On Saturday, they teamed up in a major way. Murphy hit his first big league homer and drove in three runs, Betances earned his first win in the majors and the New York Yankees bounced back to beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-3 Saturday. "I dont think it can get any better," Murphy said. David Robertson posted his first save since coming off the disabled list. Mike Trout singled with one out and stole second, setting up a nervy ninth inning. Albert Pujols followed with a foul pop, and first baseman Mark Teixeira drifted near the stands. But when he reached into the seats trying to catch it, two Yankees fans reached up and deflected it away. "I understand it. People want baseballs," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Its not what you want to see at your home ballpark." But Robertson regrouped to retire Pujols on a routine fly and struck out Howie Kendrick to end it. A day after the Angels homered four times in a 13-1 romp, they started strong when Trout hit a solo shot on the seventh pitch of the afternoon. Murphy lined a two-out, two-run single in the second that gave the Yankees a 3-1 lead. The backup catcher homered on the first pitch in the fifth, tagging Hector Santiago (0-4) for a 4-3 lead. "We had reports on him," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "He did a good job on a changeup with guys on second and third early. It was up and he just stayed with it to right field. And he got a first-pitch fastball over the middle of the plate and he hit it out of the park. So, those are two mistakes." Murphy made his big league debut last season and began the day 6 for 36 with one RBI in his career. He played two weeks shy of his 23rd birthday while All-Star Brian McCann got a day off. "The more time youre out there, the easier it becomes," Murphy said. Last year, Murphy enjoyed a special moment, catching the final pitches of Mariano Riveras career. Called up this month when Francisco Cervelli was hurt, Murphy made his own memory on this day. "Hell never forget it," Girardi said. Especially because the ffan in left field who wound up with Murphys home-run ball gave it back to him.dddddddddddd Murphy said the souvenir was going to his mom. "Im so happy for him," Betances said. Betances said he hadnt yet tracked down any mementoes from the game. No problem, the 26-year-old righty left with something more memorable. "It was good to get the first win," he said. Betances (1-0) took over in the fifth for shaky starter Vidal Nuno and pitched two scoreless innings. The 6-foot-8 reliever struck out three, and has fanned 19 in 11 2-3 innings this season. "Happy for the kid, hes been through a lot," Girardi said. "Hes had to change roles, he had to fight to get here." Said Murphy: "When hes in the strike zone, hes unhittable." Reliever Shawn Kelley got Pujols in a key spot in the seventh and Matt Thornton got pinch-hitter Raul Ibanez on a lineout with two runners on to finish the eighth. Robertson got his third save. He was activated from the DL on Tuesday after being out because of a strained left groin. Both teams started a 26-year-old lefty, and each lasted only 4 1-3 innings. Nuno pitched in place of Ivan Nova, whos set for Tommy John surgery next week. Trout hit his sixth home run, sending a solo shot into the right-centre field seats. The New Jersey native got a cheer from his parents in the stands. The Yankees loaded the bases in the second, and a balk scored the tying run before Murphy singled. A clean, hard slide by Kendrick helped the Angels make it 3-all in the fourth. He knocked down Yankees second baseman Brian Roberts, whose throw on a potential double-play relay sailed into the dugout and let a run score. Chris Iannetta added a tying double. Yankees centre fielder Jacoby Ellsbury made a diving catch with runners at the corners to end the inning. NOTES: Yankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka (3-0, 2.15) starts against RHP Garrett Richards (2-0, 2.52) on Sunday night. ... Santiagos teams have lost the last nine times hes started. He pitched for the White Sox last year. ... Yankees LF Brett Gardner was hit in the left foot by a pitch from Ernesto Frieri in the eighth. Gardner was examined by a trainer, hobbled to first and stayed in the game. ' ' '
