PHOENIX -- Maybe Jake Lamb deserved more write-in votes as one of five NL players in the Final Vote lineup for the All-Star Game. Discount Blue Jays Jerseys .The Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman finished fourth in the voting, but won the battle Saturday against an actual All-Star, Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen.Lamb later delivered another key hit that helped the Diamondbacks beat the Dodgers 2-1 in 12 innings Saturday night.Brandon Drurys single drove in Lamb with the winning run in the bottom of the 12th after Lamb had sent the game into extra innings with a tying double off Jansen in the ninth. Lamb then opened the 12th with a triple into the right field corner.Im not afraid to fail, Lamb said after a three-hit night. He (Jansen) has dominated me. I dont think Ive ever gotten a hit off him.Lamb got the triple off Dodgers reliever and losing pitcher Casey Fien (1-1).I hit it hard enough to get through. I just put it in the right spot. So that was nice, he said.After two intentional walks to load the bases, Drury laced a single through the drawn-in infield off Fien, ending the Diamondbacks five-game losing streak. It was Drurys first career game-ending hit.I was just trying to stay inside the ball, Drury said. I have really learned to focus just on the ball and not on the situation.The Dodgers had the bases loaded with two outs in the top of the 12th, but Randall Delgado (2-1) retired Yasiel Puig on a groundout to end the threat. The Dodgers stranded 15 runners on base.They still were in position to win with Jansen on the mound and a 1-0 lead with two outs in the ninth. But Lamb lined a two-strike double to drive in Michael Bourn, who had singled and stole second base.Of Lambs 63 runs batted in this season, 11 have come in the ninth inning.Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy struck out eight in six scoreless innings. McCarthy, a former Diamondbacks pitcher making his third start since returning from major elbow surgery that cost him most of last season, held Arizona to three hits in his longest outing of 2016.Diamondbacks starter Archie Bradley allowed a run on six hits, walked three and struck out three.The Dodgers bullpen, which entered Saturday with the lowest ERA in the majors, got scoreless innings from Adam Liberatore and Joe Blanton before Jansen blew his fourth save chance of the season. Jansen had not allowed a run in 14 previous games.Diamondbacks relievers held the Dodgers scoreless for six innings. Well before that, Justin Turner drove in the games first run with a soft single in the third inning, driving in Chase Utley, whod led off with a double.The Dodgers lost a chance to add to the lead in the seventh when Howie Kendrick, who was 3 for 3 up to that point, struck out against reliever Jake Barrett with the bases loaded.The offense, we had opportunities. We just couldnt get that big hit tonight but we had been doing a lot of good things offensively going into the break and (Friday) night, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. It was just one of those nights where those guys made pitches and hung in there.Jake Lamb is a great ballplayer and he got a big hit against one of the best closers, Roberts added. We expect Kenley to be perfect. Its not going to happen.INJURED UMPIREHome plate umpire Dale Scott left the game in the bottom of the first inning after taking a foul ball to his chin. The umpiring crew went to three men, with Lance Barrett moving behind the plate from first base after about a 12-minute delay.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: LHPs Clayton Kershaw and Alex Wood threw to live hitters for the first time in their rehabilitations from injuries Saturday at Dodger Stadium, Kershaw throwing 60 pitches. Wood threw 30 to 40 pitches, Roberts said. If Kershaw feels fine on Sunday he could pitch as soon as next week at Washington or St. Louis. Kershaw (back) has been on the DL since July 1 and Wood (elbow) on the 60-day DL since May 31. ... OF Trayce Thompson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with lower back irritation and OF-IF Zach Walters was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City. ... OF Joc Pederson (sprained AC joint) got a hit and walked twice in four at-bats Friday night in a rehab game for Oklahoma City. Hes been on the disabled list since June 29.Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Greinke is still dealing with oblique tightness and may not be ready to make a start this month. ... C-OF Chris Herrmann (hamstring) had an MRI Saturday morning but appeared as a pinch-hitter in the 10th inning.UP NEXTDodgers: RHP Kenta Maeda (7-6) is the scheduled starter against the Diamondbacks. Maeda has a win in two starts against Arizona this season.Diamondbacks: Sunday starter Robbie Ray (4-8) is 2-2 with a 2.40 ERA in five career starts against the Dodgers. Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys .ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013. Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. Youth Blue Jays Jerseys . Nine days before the opening ceremony, organizing committee chief Dmitry Chernyshenko said Wednesday that Sochi is "fully ready" and will deliver safe, friendly and well-run games that defy the grim reports that have overshadowed preparations. . The 28-year-old from Calgary matched his career best after missing just one shot in his two rounds of shooting in the mens 10-kilometre sprint competition. Smith finished in 23 minutes 15. Rafael Nadal and Mark Lopez clinched a 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4, 6-4 win over Leander Paes and Saketh Myneni?in three hours and 22 minutes to give Spain an unassailable 3-0 lead against India in the Davis Cup. The win assured Spain of a place in the World Group for next year.The Spanish duo, who won Gold at the Rio Olympics, got off to a good start as Nadal held serve to love in the first game. Saketh, who had lost in straight sets on Friday to David Ferrer, also held to love in the second game.?However, Nadal and Lopez, who have won four doubles titles on the ATP tour, struck the first blow when they broke Paes serve in the fourth game to race to a 3-1 lead, with Saketh netting a volley on break point.Lopez, who won the French Open doubles title this year with Feliciano Lopez, was then broken in the seventh game when he hit a forehand wide after Saketh drilled a return right back at him. Paes, who was seeking to overtake Nicola Pietrangelis record for most doubles wins in the Davis Cup (42), faced a break point in the eighth game, but managed to stave it off as the Indians leveled the scores at 4-4.Nadal and Lopez were only playing together for the second time in the Davis Cup and their inexperience showed as Nadal was broken in the ninth game, giving India a 5-4 lead. The 28 year-old Saketh, who was pairing with the 43 year-old Paes for the first time in the Davis Cup, then closed out the first set as he held serve to win 6-4 in 42 minutes.The start oof the second set was identical to the first, as Nadal and Saketh held serve in their opening games without dropping a single point. Wholesale Blue Jays Jerseys. India then had the first break when they broke Lopezs serve in the third game as Saketh hit a couple of powerful forehands down the line.There were no more breaks in the second set and it was Saketh again who served for the set. However, he was broken as the Spanish team leveled the scores at 5-5. The second set went to a tie break, where the Spaniards raced to a 5-0 lead before winning the set 7-6(2) in 62 minutes.Nadal and Lopez broke Paes in the third game of the third set as Saketh committed three unforced errors at the net to hand Spain a 2-1 lead. The set was played out on serve for the next six games before Nadal produced a solid service game to win the set 6-4 in 47 minutes.The Indians raced to a 2-0 lead in the fourth set as Nadal committed an uncharacteristic double fault on break point in the second game to lose his serve for the second time in the match. The Indians couldnt capitalise though, as Saketh was broken in the seventh game, allowing Spain to narrow the deficit to 3-4.?The Spanish team then broke Paes in the ninth game as Nadal belted a forehand on break point. Nadal then sealed the match with a nerveless service game to win the fourth set in 50 minutes. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
Cant believe the editors here at ESPN. Hornets Jerseys From China .com want a Chase for the Sprint Cup outlook. Are they setting me up to fail?Who could predict that the last driver to make it out of the 2015 quarterfinal round -- Kyle Busch -- would win the title? He wouldnt have advanced if his teammate Matt Kenseth had won at Kansas Speedway (and therefore earned an automatic bid into the next round) instead of getting roughed up by Joey Logano.We all know how that ended up.So take these outlooks with a grain of salt. In these three-race rounds where race winners and best in points advance while eliminating four drivers, anything can happen culminating with the best-finisher-at-Homestead among the four finalists being crowned the champion.From fist bumps to fists thrown, the Chase is, by the nature of the rules and for better or for worse, unpredictable.Kyle BuschTeam: Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 ToyotaCrew chief: Adam Stevens2016 regular season points finish: 6th2016 wins: 4Previous Chase appearances: 8Championships: 2015Why he will win: He knows he can win a championship by running well enough to get by and capitalizing at the end. Hes the No. 1 seed because he has four wins and his three runner-up finishes are two more than Brad Keselowski has, not because he has been the best car all year. That being said, he has led more laps than any other driver this season.Why he wont: He has little momentum. He was sixth in the regular-season standings and has led more than five laps only once in the last six races and in only four of the last 15 races. And being the No.1 seed isnt good for Busch -- he has finished 10th (2008) and 12th (2011) in the years where he was the No. 1 seed.Brad Keselowski????????Team: Team Penske No. 2 FordCrew chief: Paul Wolfe2016 regular season points finish: 2nd2016 wins: 4Previous Chase appearances: 4Championships: 2012Why he will win: Keselowskis 12 top-5 finishes rank him just behind regular-season champ Kevin Harvick and that type of consistency can get him to Homestead, where anything can happen.Why he wont: The 2012 champion doesnt have the speed of some of his competitors. He will have to make something happen to get the finishes he needs, and at some point be forced to overdrive the car.Denny HamlinTeam: Joe Gibbs Racing No. 11 ToyotaCrew chief: Mike Wheeler2016 regular season points finish: 4th2016 wins: 3Previous Chase appearances: 9Championships: NoneWhy he will win: Hamlin knows how to rise to the occasion. He bookended the regular season with emotional victories -- a Daytona 500 win and then a win at his home track at Richmond. The inconsistency this year can be blamed on that Daytona 500 win and little incentive to race well each week.Why he wont: Because there are pit-road timing lines on pit road, and Hamlin has had a lead foot this season with more pit-road speeding penalties than trophies. The idea that the Daytona 500 win allowed this team to experiment and cruise through the rest of the year could be a smokescreen of bigger issues. His 29 career victories are more than any other active driver without a championship.Kevin HarvickTeam: Stewart-Haas Racing No. 4 ChevroletCrew chief: Rodney Childers2016 regular season points finish: 1st2016 wins: 2ndPrevious Chase appearances: 9Championships: 2014Why he will win: He has finished in the top 10 in 21 of 26 races this year, and top-10 finishes gets a driver at least into the semifinal round. He has owned Phoenix -- the last race of that semifinal round -- in recent years. His five top-5s in past six races shows hes ready for the Chase.Why he wont: His pit crew will crack under the pressure he has put on them. And they will be under pressure because there will be races where the Toyotas will just flat out be better.Carl EdwardsTeam: Joe Gibbs Racing No. 19 ToyotaCrew chief: Dave Rogers2016 regular season points finish: 7th2016 wins: 2Previous Chase appearances: 9Championships: NoneWhy he will win: Its his turn. Actually, its their turn. Both Edwards and crew chief Rogers have proved themselves as championship-caliber talents. They have all the tools they need to win one.Why he wont: After leading laps in six of the first nine races, Edwards has led laps in only six of the last 17 races. And maybe a driver who loses the championship on a tiebreaker one year and then fails to advance to the final round because of rain at Phoenix in another is destined to never win a title.Martin Truex Jr.Team: Furniture Row Racing No. 78 ToyotaCrew chief: Cole Pearn2016 regular season points finish: 8th2016 wins: 2Previous Chase appearances: 3Championships: NoneWhy he will win: Nobody has led more miles this year than Truex, who has paced the field for 1,664 miles (16.7 percent). He advanced to the final round last year, so he knows how to deal with the pressure.Why he wont: He has already won twice this year and Truex isnt known for stockpiling wins in a season -- this is the first time he has won more than one race in a year. His season has been a year of coulda, shoulda, woulda and those types of seasons only get a driver to the final round, they dont win championships.Matt KensethTeam: Joe Gibbs Racing No. 20 ToyotaCrew chief: Jason Ratcliff2016 regular season points finish: 13th2016 wins: 2Previous Chase appearances: 11Championships: 2003Why he will win: Hes still ticked off about losing the chance to win the title last year and the suspension for wrecking Joey Logano. Its time for him to show it.Why he wont: He has not performed as well as his Toyota brethren in 2016. He was 13th in points. Yes, he has had four DNFs this year -- and teammates Busch and Edwards have had five and still outpointed him by more than 80 during the regular season.Jimmie JohnsonTeam: Hendrick Motorsports No. 48 ChevroletCrew chief: Chad Knaus2016 regular season points finish: 9th2016 wins: 2Previous Chase appearances: 12Championships: 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013Why he will win: Hes Jimmie Johnson. He knows how to win championships.Why he wont: Because its 2016, and Johnson has finished in the top 10 in just 10 races. He has never had a season where he has had fewer than 20 top-10s. He also has failed to advance to the final round of the elimination-style Chase implemented in 2014.Joey LoganoTeam: Team Penske No. 22 FordCrew chief: Todd Gordon2016 regular season points finish: 3rd2016 wins: 1Previous Chase appearances: 3Championships: NoneWhy he will win: Just when you think Logano wont be a factor or has seemed to have found a rut, he breaks out with strong performances. He has quietly had a quite consistently strong season, finishing third in regular-season points despite having just one win. The elimination-style Chase is all about consistency and being great in the last four races.Why he wont: As much as Keselowski and Logano have tried, they just have not matched the Toyotas and Harvick lap for lap for lap. That doesnt turn around from race No. 26 to No. 27.Kyle LarsonTeam: Chip Ganassi Racing No. 42 ChevroletCrew chief: Chad Johnston2016 regular season points finish: 14th2016 wins: 1Previous Chase appearances: NoneChampionships: NoneWhy he will win: No driver is as hot as Larson at the moment, as he has had three consecutive top-three finishes. Drivers talk about the pressure in the Chase, and no driver seems to have more ice in his veins than Larson.Why he wont: When it takes a driver 99 races to earn his first win, it will take more than three years to earn his first championship.Tony StewartTeam: Stewart-Haas Racing No. 14 ChevroletCrew chief: Mike Bugarewicz2016 regular season points finish: 27th2016 wins: 1Previous Chase appearances: 8Championships: 2002, 2005, 2011Why he will win: The racing gods work in mysterious ways, and Stewart winning a title in his final Sprint Cup season would be the ultimate storyline, thrilling many and angering some.Why he wont: While he turned a mediocre 2011 season into a title, the brain says no way that can happen again. He has finished outside the top 20 in each of the last four races.Kurt BuschTeam: Stewart-Haas Racing No. 41 ChevroletCrew chief: Tony Gibson2016 regular season points finish: 5th2016 wins: 1Previous Chase appearances: 9Championships: 2004Why he will win: Much like Logano, Busch has quietly put together a solid year. He had 17 top-10s in the regular season. Who needs top-5s (he has only six this year) in this style of Chase? Just have that great day at Homestead.Why he wont: He has no momentum. Since the win at Pocono, he has had just two finishes better than 10th in the last 12 races.Chris BuescherTeam: Front Row Motorsports No. 34 FordCrew chief: Bob Osborne2016 regular season points finish: 29th2016 wins: 1Previous Chase appearances: NoneChampionships: NoneWhy he will win: LOL.Why he wont: Hes already won. Hes in the Chase. When you dont have enough fingers and toes to calculate your average finish, its one of those great-to-be-here kind of things.Chase ElliottTeam: Hendrick Motorsports No. 24 ChevroletCrew chief: Alan Gustafson2016 regular season points finish: 10th2016 wins: 0Previous Chase appearances: NoneChampionships: NoneWhy he will win: He has a championship-caliber team, and Elliott finishes races -- he has just one DNF all year.Why he wont: Rookies dont win championships. Elliott is still learning how to go from very good to great.Austin DillonTeam:?Richard Childress Racing No. 3 ChevroletCrew chief: Richard Slugger Labbe2016 regular season points finish: 11th2016 wins: 0Previous Chase appearances: NoneChampionships: NoneWhy he will win: He drives the 3, and sometimes things are hard to explain.Why he wont: RCR hasnt won a race in nearly three years.Jamie McMurrayTeam: Chip Ganassi Racing No. 1 ChevroletCrew chief: Matt McCall2016 regular season points finish: 12th2016 wins: 0Previous Chase appearances: 1Championships: NoneWhy he will win: Because nice guys finish first?Why he wont: NASCAR likes to compare this elimination format to the NCAA mens basketball tournament. The No. 16 seed has yet to beat a No. 1. That, and the fact that McMurray has yet to lead a lap. All year. Wholesale Hornets Jerseys . LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. Youth Hornets Jerseys .

After slipping from the summit during the week, the Gunners overcame struggling Crystal Palace 2-0 on Sunday thanks to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlains second-half brace.Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha believes defenders double up on him in a bid to nullify his threat, especially in the absence of Yannick Bolasie. After an impressive start to this campaign, Alan Pardews men have fallen away in recent weeks, and are without a league win in seven games, stretching back to mid-December.Goals have been in short supply, with the Eagles having found the net just twice in that seven-game winless run. Zaha finds the net against Stoke in the FA Cup Bolasies injury lay-off has been detrimental to their plight and, in an interview with Soccer Saturday, Zaha believes that Bolasies absence has meant opponents have been able to focus on just him, rather than the potent pair.Me and Yannick [Bolasie] give teams a hard time on both wings, Zaha said. But now, teams tend to double up just on me, because I am the only outball sometimes - the only one who will take people on - so it has been hard without him. Hell be back soon, so well be back to doing what we do.The manager has not changed my game. He has just added to it with the defensive side really, and showed me how important it is.

Adebayor has come in, and he has got goals in him, Zaha said. I am not scared about anything, and I am sure we will start scoring goals soon enough. We just need to keep faith really.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The NHL has fined the Vancouver Canucks $50,000 for tampering after general manager Jim Benning mentioned specific players the team might be interested in. Wholesale Suns Jerseys Free Shipping .Benning noted the Canucks interest in Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban and Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos last week during a radio interview before the NHL draft in Buffalo, New York.NHL rules bar teams from discussing their interest in players who are under contract. The one exception is during a window of opportunity that opened on Saturday, when all teams are allowed to contact pending free agents, but not allowed to sign them until July 1.Benning spoke two days before that window opened.Last week I was trying to be candid with our fans and media about our efforts to improve our team but said too much about players on other teams, Benning said Tuesday. I have spoken personally to the NHL and the general managers involved to apologize and I accept the leagues ruling.Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin told reporters that Benning crossed the line in divulging trade conversations involving Subban, who is signed through the 2021-22 season.I spoke with Jim and accept his representation that he intended no harm with his comments and that he will handle similar questions from the media differently in the future, NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said.Cheap Stitched Suns Jerseys .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. Suns Jerseys China .

NEW YORK -- The US Open used its new, $150 million retractable roof atop Arthur Ashe Stadium during a match for the first time on Wednesday night.The shutting of the cover resulted in a suspension of play of less than 7? minutes at 3-all in the second set of Rafael Nadals 6-0, 7-5, 6-1 victory against Andreas Seppi in the second round.Nadal had the distinction of hitting the first practice and match ball under the closed roof.?I feel that the conditions are pretty similar when the roof is closed or open, Nadal said afterward.The most noticeable difference was the amount of ambient noise -- chatter from spectators, mainly -- that could be heard during points.U.S. Tennis Association executive director Gordon Smith said tournament organizers will look into that.This is New York. And yes, theres crowd noise. And yes, we want the crowds to come, we want them to be excited. We want them to cheer. And we think that over time, the fans will adjust and the players will adjust, he said. Its obvious theres going to be more noise in a trapped environment than in an open environment.Even before the roof was closed, chair umpire Cedric Mourier repeatedly implored spectators to keep quiet during points. Both Nadal and Seppi were surprised by just how many interruptions there were from fans, either moving around in the stands or simply being loud.The people, I think, are used to going to baseball [games] and keep talking, Seppi said. There really was a lot of noise.After dealing with rain delays and postponed finals for years, the USTA finally built a movable roof over its main stadium. It was available for this years tournament, which started Monday, but the first two days were dry.It took well over 10 years to come up with a solution to do this that was affordable, was architecturally imaginative, that was cost-effective, that waas efficient. Wholesale Suns Jerseys. But we did it, Smith said. To see it work flawlessly was really incredible.A light rain began to fall while Nadal and Seppi were playing. Tournament referee Brian Earley was monitoring the weather from off to the side of the playing surface and eventually walked over to chair umpire Cedric Mourier and the two players to let them know he wanted to shut the roof.This might take very few minutes, Mourier announced to the spectators. Thank you very much for your patience.Some fans applauded or cheered. Others pulled out their cellphones to shoot photos of the structure as it moved. Even Nadal took a glance overhead to sneak a peek.ESPN tennis analyst Chris Evert took to Twitter to share her feelings on seeing the new roof in action.In an interview with ESPN during its broadcast of the match, tournament director David Brewer said: This is why we built the roof in the first place.Asked what he thought of how things went Wednesday, Brewer replied: Pretty sweet from my point of view.The USTA has said that, based on pretournament testing, the expectation is there will be little difference in playing conditions, regardless of whether the roof is open or closed.The only use of the roof until Nadals match came when it was shut at the start of the tournaments opening ceremony on Monday night, then opened while Phil Collins sang In the Air Tonight.The US Open mens final was postponed in five consecutive years because of wet weather from 2008 to 2012.?For a good show, for the comfort of the fans and for the fans in general [watching on] television, Nadal said about the new roof, its just an unbelievable improvement.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
Ferrari have been taking a bit of stick recently over the late pit stop contributing to Kimi R?ikk?nens loss of a podium place in Singapore. Womens Rangers Jerseys . Its easy to be wise after the event when not faced with making an instant decision. Even simpler when you dont have half of Italy ready to trot out previous tactical failures in the event of what quickly becomes another very public disappointment.You may think that nothing has changed at Ferrari, but a recent book* makes it clear that the current difficulties at Maranello do not have the added stress of the team principal himself cranking up the tension. For all of Maurizio Arrivabenes perceived faults, at least he is thinking only of the good of the Scuderia rather than settling a personal score with one of his drivers.The 1983 season is mainly remembered for the championship battle between Renaults Alain Prost and the ultimate winner, Nelson Piquet in his Brabham-BMW. It is easy to forget that Patrick Tambay was in the mix until political and mechanical circumstances removed the Ferrari driver from contention and led to the Frenchman being dropped for 1984 before the season was done. It was a typically unfortunate end to a comparatively brief but frequently poignant journey.His F1 future seemingly on the rocks courtesy of uncompetitive cars from McLaren, Theodore and Ligier, Tambay got the career-reviving call from Maranello following the loss of his friend Gilles Villeneuve at Zolder in May 1982. As if that wasnt enough emotion, Tambay had to lift the team once again a couple of months later when Didier Pironi, the apparent shoo-in for the title, was seriously injured during Saturday morning practice at Hockenheim. You can imagine the outpouring of passion and gratitude a day later when Tambay scored his first Grand Prix win.But the feeling of personal sentiment would be even greater the following year when Tambay, starting from the same grid position used by Villeneuve for his last race, went on to win the San Marino Grand Prix for Gilles. There was hardly a dry eye in the house.You might be forgiven for thinking that all of this would elevate Tambay into a position of deity as Ferrari ran strongly for the 1983 championship. In fact, it would have the reverse effect within one significant corner of the teams infrastructure.Marco Piccinini was the team manager; a man who not only had the devout appearance a priest built but also acted like one during his divine daily communication as the link between Enzo Ferrari and what was going within the commendatores team. Tambay, for all his multi-lingual natural charm -- or, perhaps, because of it -- did not enjoy a close relationship with Piccinini; a fault line that would become a chasm in Detroit when Tambay made a serious misjudgement.Tiring of a familiar lecture on etiquette -- You will not fight against one another. You will not touch each other. You will follow team orders on the pit board -- Tambay chose to miss the pre-race briefing in preference for watching fellow-countryman Yannick Noah play in the French Open tennis final. I felt I could skip the briefing but I forgot to ask Piccinini for the authorisation to go to my hotel room [overlooking the track], says Tambay. It was a case of my disrespect of his authority. It was a big mistake and he was going to make me pay for it.While Tambay never did discover how the news of his disobedience was relayed to the Old Man, he got a sense of it when Piccinini overruled a decision on tyre choice made by Tambay and his engineer, Tommaso Carletti, who then overheard his driver telling Piccinini to get lost. Or words to that effect.Even allowing for R?ikk?nens renowned insouciance, this is not likely to be a conversation heard in the Ferrari garage these days thanks to Arrivabenes self-confessed awareness of his technical limitations. But in 1983, Tambay was not happy about his bosss false assumption of expert competence.He [Piccinini] wasnt a real specialist, says Tambay. He didnt fit the suit. I think he wanted to have more respect and consideration. But, for me, the important team management came from the technical staff: Mauro [Forghieri - the talented and hugely respected technical director] and Tommaso.Despite starting from the front row eight times in 1983, Tambay would win just once, his season peppered with technical failures, one particular engine blow-up being caused -- in Tambays view -- by being forced to race irascible teammate René Arnoux rather than preserving an easy one-two finish.The ultimate irony would be Ferrari choosing to keep Arnoux for 1984 and replacing Tambay with Michele Alboreto. Tambay received the bad news by telephone from a journalist [Piccinini claiming the line had been busy when he tried to call some hours before].Much as the team would grow to love Alboreto, they were as disturbed by Tambays dismissal as much as the manner of its delivery. At the final race in South Africa, Tambay gave his mechanics the $3000 prize for pole position. Deeply touched by the recognition more than the amount, the boys passed on the money to an Italian charity supporting muscular dystrophy, a cause personally supported by Enzo Ferrari after his son, Dino, had succumbed to the disease in 1956.The final paradox is that Tambay, now 67, is continuing a cheerful active life as best he can while coping with Parkinsons Disease. But none of this will detract from a career that, in his view, was more blessed than blighted. There can be no doubt about that when you read this detailed and extremely revealing story.* 27 Patrick Tambay - The Ferrari Years by Massimo Burbi (Evro Publishing) Youth Rangers Jerseys .ca NFL Power Rankings, overtaking the Denver Broncos and remaining ahead of NFC competition San Francisco, Carolina and New Orleans. Discount Rangers Jerseys .  Aside from the trilogy main event title fight, there are a number of intriguing matchups in the heavyweight, welterweight and lightweight divisions. . Its an influence in football and a big part of the game. (STATS) -- Last season was the year for the FCS wide receiver. This season might be the year of the FCS wide receiver.Eastern Washington senior Cooper Kupp led the way on the STATS FCS Preseason All-America Team, announced Monday. Hes been named a first-team All-American for three consecutive seasons, and last year he became only the second wide receiver to earn the national offensive player of the year award.South Dakota State junior Jake Wieneke rejoined Kupp as the other the preseason wide receiver after also being selected to the STATS All-America first team last season.The preseason squad is 99 players deep spread across three teams. All 13 conferences and 63 schools had selections, and they included seven wide receivers who earned a form of All-America honors last year. Its such a big season of top wide receivers that 11 of the 14 who surpassed 1,000 receiving yards last year, as well as the next three on the final national receiving chart, are back to damage defenses again.The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Kupp caught 114 passes for 1,642 yards and 19 touchdowns as a junior -- leading the nation in each category. On pace to hold all the major receiving records in FCS history, he already owns 18 school, eight Big Sky Conference and seven NCAA records.Id be shocked if you could show me a better receiver at any level in the country, Eastern Washington coach Beau Baldwin said.The 6-4, 210-pound Wieneke was second nationally in receiving yards (1,472), a total he grabbed off 72 receptions with 11 touchdowns. His 20.4 yards per catch ranked fourth in the nation.Kupp and Wieneke were two of 13 returning first-team All-Americans named to the preseason squad. Every conference had at least one first-team selection, and overall 46 players who gained STATS All-America honors in December return this season.Also returning to the first-team offense were Jacksonville State quarterback Eli Jenkins, running backs Chase Edmonds from Fordham and Kade Harrington of Lamar, The Citadel fullback Tyler Renew and Chattanooga offensive linemen Corey Levin.Harrington led the FCS in rushing yards (2,092) and Edmonds paced in touchdowns (25), while Jenkins fueled Jacksonville State to the national championship game. They finished second, fourth and sixth, respectively, behind Kupp in voting for STATS offensive player of the year.Duquesne linebacker Christian Kuntz and The Citadel cornerback Dee Delaney returned to the first-team defense -- they were 11th and 16th in voting for the STATS defensive player of the year.William & Mary place-kicker Nick Dorka, Indiana State long snapper Joshua Appel, Southern kick returner Willie Quinn and North Carolina A&T punt returner Khris Gardin were named to the first-team special teams again.The rest of the preseason first-team offense consisted of Drake tight end Eric Saubert and offensive linemen Erik Austell of Charleston Southern, Julien Davenport of Bucknell, Casey Dunn of Jacksonville State and Zach Johnson of North Dakota State.Also on the first-team defense were defensive linemen Keionta Davis of Chattanooga, P.J. Hall of Sam Houston State, Derek Rivers of Youngstown State and Karter Schult of Northern Iowa; linebackers Andrew Ankrah of James Madison, Dylan Cole of Missouri State and Nick DeLuca of North Dakota State; and defensive backs Casey DeAndrade of New Hampshire, David Jones of Richmond and Donald Payne of Stetson.Completing the first-team special teams were Cornell punter Chris Fraser and all-purpose back John Santiago of North Dakota.North Dakota State, which has won the last five FCS national championships, was one of four teams to boast four preseason All-Americans. The others were Charleston Southern, Chattanooga and Jacksonville State.Among FCS conferences, the Missouri Valley had the most All-America selections with 16. CAA Football (13) and the Southern Conference (11) also reached double figures.They were followed by the Big Sky with nine, Ohio Valley with eight, Southland with seven, Big South and Patriot League with six each, Mid-Eastern Athletic with five, Ivy League, Northeast and Southwestern Athletic with four each, and Pioneer League with three.

On Saturday, coach Rex Ryan said the Bills were bringing in a number of linebackers for tryouts to shore up a thin position.Rookie Reggie Ragland, a projected starter, hurt his left knee on Friday, and his status remains uncertain.

OTTAWA, Ontario -- Star Canadian pole vaulter Shawn Barber tested positive for cocaine before the Rio Olympics following a tryst with a woman he met on Craigslist. Youth Tigers Jerseys .The 2015 world champion was permitted to compete in Brazil after it was determined he inadvertently ingested trace amounts of the banned substance through kissing. Barber called the positive test a complete shock.The Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada made its decision Aug. 11, four days before Barber competed in Rio de Janeiro, where he finished 10th. The report wasnt released until Thursday.It was quite an ordeal going into the Olympics, but everything worked out the way it was supposed to, Barber said during a conference call.The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport proposed a four-year competition ban. Barber wasnt suspended but was stripped of his 2016 national title.This has been a learning experience for Shawn, Athletics Canada, the nations governing track and field body, said in a statement. He is a young athlete learning how to compete on the field of play, and prepare away from it.According to the report, Barber used cocaine July 8, the night before he won the Canadian title in Edmonton, Alberta. He had posted in the casual encounter section of Craigslist for a professional person to engage in a sexual rendezvous as a way to relieve stress. He specified he wanted a woman who was drug- and disease-free, the report said.The woman, referred to as W in the report, testified that she consumed cocaine before she met Barber and then again in the bathroom of his hotel room. She said at his hearing he could not have known shed used the drug, and she felt horrible about what happened.The woman also said she had consumed a 26-ounce bottle of vodka that night and had four or five drinks before meeting Barber. She said he declined her offer of a drink. The two did not exchange money, the report said.Arbitrator Ross Dumoulin wrote in his decision that the encounter was a pre-meditated effort by Barber to have a sex with a stranger in a hotel room. Exercising utmost caution would require him to have made inquiries to satisfy himself that there was no cocaine involved, he added.Barber was a strong hope for a medal at the Rio Olympics after winning the 2015 world title in Beijing. But he struggled in the rainy conditions in Rio.Last fall, Barbers father, George, was banned by Athletics Canada. George Barber had acted as Shawns coach until the governing body learned of his 2007 criminal conviction on charges of having sex with a student while employed at a U.S. high school. Discount Tigers Jerseys . -- Nate Robinson has played for seven teams, so beating one of them is no longer a rare occurrence. Womens Tigers Jerseys .ca NBA Power Rankings, ahead of the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. .

LOUIS -- The moment that many St. Louis Cardinals fans clamored for since Alex Reyes callup from Triple-A Memphis on Aug. 9 will arrive Saturday night.With veteran right-hander Mike Leake coming down with shingles, Reyes will step in and make his first major league start at Busch Stadium against the Oakland Athletics.Regarded by many as the top pitching prospect in the minors before his promotion, Reyes has justified the hype in his first five big league appearances. In 9 1/3 innings, Reyes has allowed no runs and just five hits and four walks, striking out 13 with a fastball clocked as high as 101 mph.He also picked up a win in his second outing against the Chicago Cubs as well as a save against Philadelphia, giving a boost to a bullpen that struggled over most of the previous two months.Hes a top of the rotation talent, Cincinnati manager Bryan Price said of Reyes after he worked a 1-2-3 ninth in his major league debut on Aug. 9. It looks like they have another good one.The contrast between Saturday nights starters couldnt be more glaring. While Reyes relies on strikeouts, Oakland right-hander Zach Neal is your classic pitch to contact guy.Of all major leaguers who have pitched at least 25 innings, Neal (2-3, 5.49 ERA) has the lowest walks-per-nine innings and strikeouts-per-nine innings, issuing just two walks and fanning only 14 in 39 innings.Neals issue has been keeping the ball from leaving the ballpark. He has yielded 47 hits, including seven homers, in 39 1/3 innings. It will be his fiftth big league start after 10 relief appearances. Wholesale Tigers Jerseys.

In his first 38 MLB games, Healy is hitting .281 with six homers and 17 RBI.Hes seeing every type of pitcher and hes making the adjustments, Oakland manager Bob Melvin said of Healy. Hes not scared at all. Hes very respectful of his teammates and the game, but hes very tenacious.St. Louis won Friday nights series opener 3-1, playing one of its cleanest games of the year a night after a sloppy 10-6 loss to the New York Mets. The Cardinals didnt commit an error and even manufactured an insurance run with smart baserunning, a feature they havent often employed this year.In upping its record to 68-59, St. Louis looked more like a playoff team -- it leads Miami by 1 1/2 games for the National Leagues second wild-card spot -- and less like a team simply trying to outslug everyone.It was a good, clean win, St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said.
