J.J.Watt Jersey Porter among fans of Interleague Play

DUNEDIN, Fla. — This year marks the 40th anniversary of the designated hitter in the American League, and Astros manager Bo Porter — whose team will make its AL debut March 31 — is a fan of having a different set of rules in both leagues.J.J.Watt NCAA College Football Jersey

“I think it’s good for baseball,” J.J.Watt Jersey Porter said. “It kind of gives baseball a little different brand. If I were a fan, I would live for Interleague.”

When it comes to the DH, Houston Texans J.J.Watt 10th Anniversary JerseyPorter says AL teams can be at a disadvantage when they play in National League parks because the DH, which is often the team’s best offensive player, is forced to play the field, which is not always ideal.

That is why J.J.Watt Jersey  Porter says it is vital to have a DH who can also play the field adequately. The Astros have that in Carlos Pena, who has a good glove at first base.

“I think it puts you in a position where, if that guy can’t go play a position, you’re stuck with him just being your DH, and you can never give one of your other regulars just a day where they don’t have to play the field,” Porter said. “Let’s say Jose Altuve goes 4-for-4 with two triples and two stolen bases and scores five runs and he runs all over the place. I don’t want to take his bat out of the lineup, but I’ll say, ‘I’m going to get you at DH [the following game],’ and whatever position your DH plays, you put him in the field. You still have the DH in the lineup.”J.J.Watt Black Lights Out Jersey

Green Bay Packers to meet with Johnny Bench Jersey Jolly on return

Johnny Benc Johnny h Throwback Jersey;Defensive tackle Johnny Bench Jersey Jolly has been out of football for three seasons as he battled legal problems and drug abuse. The Green Bay Packers aren’t ready to give up on him.

Coach Mike McCarthy and general manager Ted Thompson both spoke about Jolly on Sunday from the NFL Annual Meeting in Phoenix. The team recently restructured Jolly’s deal, reducing his base salary. That shows a clear willingness to work with Jolly again. But they have to meet with him first.

Offseason Forecast: Packers

With the offseason under way, Around The League examines what’s next for all 32 teams. Gregg Rosenthal hits the Packers. More …

“He has to come to Green Bay, and there’s going to be some meeting,” McCarthy said via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “As with any player, you go through a medical process. We’ll go through all that. I think it’s important to go through all that before we get into how we feel.

 Bench 1976 Jersey;”JohnnyBench Jersey Jolly, I’ve always considered him one of our guys, and everybody knows what he’s been through. It would be great if this opportunity works out. But as an organization, we have a responsibility to go through the process.”

It sounds like that process will result in Jolly getting another chance at the NFL if he’s got the right mindset. He would have to work out the terms with a judge in Houston because he would be leaving the state while on probation for several drug-related offenses.

After a slow start,Johnny Bench Jersey Tavares is showing why the New York Islanders were so eager to take him with the first pick in the 2009 Entry Draft.

The second-year center continued his scoring surge, scoring a natural hat trick in just 5:46 of the second period to lead the Islanders to a 5-3 victory against the Buffalo Sabres at the Nassau Coliseum.

“Getting a natural hat trick is always nice,” Tavares said. “We did a lot of things right.”

No one has been doing more things right than Tavares, who has 10 goals and 19 points in New York’s last 15 games — a stretch in while the Islanders are 9-4-2 after suffering through 20 losses in a span of 21 games.

 Tyler Ennis fired a rebound off the end boards behind DiPietro at 5:45 of the third period for a power-play goal that made it 4-2, and the Sabres dominated play for most of the rest of the game. They had a chance to get closer when Josh Bailey was called for hooking with 4:41 remaining, only to allow Michael Grabner’s shorthanded goal on a wrister from near the left faceoff dot with 3:08 left.

DiPietro allowed a late goal by Jochen Hecht but looked sharp after missing 12 days with the injury.

“He was good. He saw the puck well. He controlled his rebounds,” Capuano said of DiPietro. “I thought his lateral movement was really good. They ramped it up in the third, we couldn’t handle it, and Ricky came up big for us.”

Jackson healthy, but Johnny Bench Jersey on bench vs. right-handers

 

ST. PETERSBURG — Conor Jackson Johnny Bench Jersey is finally healthy, but he has had to deal with sitting through the three-game series vs. the Rays because he is normally used against left-handed pitchers.

Jackson, who was acquired in a trade with the Athletics on Aug. 31, hasn’t been able to contribute much to the Red Sox due to a bruised right knee he suffered in his second start with Boston.

“It’s one thing to get injured on a team you’ve been playing for the whole season and another to get hurt in the second game with the team you get traded to that’s in a pennant race,” said Jackson, who is battling through an 0-for-25 slump. “I haven’t been playing great and I need every opportunity I can, and for me to miss opportunities it’s not a good thing now, so I’m trying to get back as quick as I can.”

The Rays have started right-handers Wade Davis, Jeremy Hellickson and James Shields over the three-game set. Jackson said he is available to play if the correct situation arises.Johnny Bench Jersey Sale

“I talked to [manager Terry Francona] yesterday and he knows I’m not 100 percent, but I don’t have the time to sit out and wait until I’m 100 percent,” Jackson Johnny Bench Jersey said. “But you have to be out there if you want to produce. You have to be out there. … I feel like I’ve had some good at-bats, but when you’re playing every day, it’s easier to come out of this.”Bench 1976 Jersey .

Jackson batted .249 with 17 doubles, a triple and four home runs with the A’s before the trade. The hitless streak is the longest of his seven-year career.

Aviles gets start at hot corner in series finale ,Johnny Benc Johnny h Throwback Jersey

ST. PETERSBURG — Manager Terry Francona decided to start Mike Aviles on Sunday at third base in place of Jed Lowrie, who is 1-for-9 in his career against Rays starter James Shields.

“Jed’s struggled against Shields, and since we’ve played him a few days in a row, we can give him two days off,” Francona said. “It will be really good for him.”

Lowrie is 0-for-12 on the current road trip, which began six games ago in Toronto.

Aviles is 1-for-5 against Shields for his career.

Worth noting

Jacoby Ellsbury, who turned 28 on Sunday, has hit safely in his last 15 games. He is 23-for-65 (.354) during the streak with 10 doubles, a triple, three homers and 10 RBIs. Johnny Bench Cincinnati Reds Jersey He has hit .333 in 85 career games in September, the best batting average by a Red Sox in the month since Wade Boggs batted .349 with Boston from 1982-92.

BOSTON – Nathan Horton Johnny Bench Jersey scored with 7:33 left in Game 7, sending the Boston Bruins to the StanleyCup finals for the first time in more than two decades with a 1-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference finals on Friday night.Johnny Bench Cincinnati Reds Jersey,

The right-winger on Boston’s top line beat goalie Dwayne Roloson by deflecting a pass through the slot from David Krejci. That set off a loud celebration among Bruins fans, who have waited a long time for a trip to the finals.

Tim Thomas made 24 saves in his third career playoff shutout and second this season.

Boston will open the Stanley Cup finals in Vancouver against the Western Conference champion Canucks on Wednesday.

The Bruins won their most recent championship in 1972 and hadn’t reached the finals since 1990, when they lost to the Edmonton Oilers.

Both goalies were outstanding behind teammates playing energetic, impressive defence in a hard-hitting game without a single penalty.

“I think a lot of people thought I was over the hill,'” said the 37-year-old Thomas, a Vezina Trophy finalist who was sidelined throughout last year’s playoffs. “I knew it wasn’t true. I put in a lot of work over the summer and I’ve had an unbelievable year. I’ve been blessed.”

The Bruins improved to 2-3 in Game 7s under coach Claude Julien but have won the last two. The previous victory came in the opening round this season, 4-3 in overtime over the Montreal Canadiens. Horton also scored the winning goal in that one.
