He is 4-0 with a 0.67 ERA

KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Usain Bolt is now a movie star. Wholesale Titans Jerseys . He refuses to say hes an actor.Such a distinction is important for the Jamaican sprinting great and nine-time Olympic champion. Until his competitive career ends next year, Bolt will continue playing only one role -- that of the worlds fastest man, someone who beat the odds to acquire immense fame and fortune on his way to becoming one of the biggest stars in global sport.As such, its not a made-for-Hollywood version of himself that takes center stage in the documentary I Am Bolt, which was released Monday. As the title wants viewers to believe, the Bolt who is in the film is the very same one that his friends, family and other members of his close-knit inner sanctum have seen for as long as theyve known him.I wasnt an actor, Bolt said. I wasnt trying to push a different person forward.This is Bolt, a behind-the-scenes view of the superstar that took about two years to make and has him holding the camera at times. The idea in large part surrounds Bolts quest for the so-called triple-triple -- three gold medals in three events at three consecutive Olympics, something no sprinter in the history of the sport had ever accomplished.He pulled it off, to little surprise, at the Rio Games.And then he could finally exhale, knowing this film would have the perfect ending.Oh my God, you have no idea the pressure that I was under, Bolt said in a recent interview with The Associated Press, as the production was winding down. But I live for these moments. I love the pressure. And I have all the confidence in myself and my coach and the team I have that it would come true for me. The pressure was there, but the confidence was always there -- which made it much easier.Bolt agreed to make this film after realizing that he would be able to convince both his fans and his detractors that what they see on the track -- a free-spirited showman who tries to be stoic and serious only when absolutely necessary -- is what they would get if they tagged along with him on a typical day.He shows off some of the spoils of his life, whether its the party scene or traveling or enjoying luxury. He also shows how all that is possible, with 5:30 a.m. workouts that he groaned through and the rigors of whats needed to keep an elite athlete in top physical condition.I live a simple life, you know what I mean? Bolt said. One of the things that made me really want to do this was people always saying: Aw, this is not really who he is. Hes not always laughing. Its not always fun for him. This is who I am. I really wanted to show people this is who I am. I like to have fun. I like to chill. I like to go out. Thats just a part of me. The part that people dont see, thats the part I want to show people behind the scenes, the hard work.There are also some moments where that megawatt smile isnt present. Yes, even Usain Bolt can have a tough day.You have to ask yourself, why am I doing this? Ive done everything. Ive done it many times, Bolt said. I have nothing else to prove.Not now, he doesnt.The triple-triple was the capper to a storied Olympic career. Hes the world-record-holder in the 100- and 200-meter dashes, and anchored the fastest 4x100-meter relay in world history as well. But without those three golds from Rio de Janeiro, Bolt would have felt somewhat unfulfilled.I wanted to be one of the greatest, Bolt said. I wanted to be among the greats. Without this Olympics, I would be great, yes. But I dont think I would be in the bracket of Muhammad Ali, Pele and the great footballers. Thats what I want.Bolts plan is for the world championships next year in London to be his final meet.From there, who knows.Hes already well set-up as a businessman, with endorsement deals around the globe and other investments -- such as a restaurant not far from Jamaicas National Stadium in Kingston, an eatery where a two-lane track is stenciled on the floor around the bar. Hell consider dabbling with other sports, and he has a clear desire to play soccer. He might coach. He will not be a politician.And hes already been approached about acting. For the record, Bolt says the actor who could play him best is Denzel Washington, and he counts 2 Guns as one of his favorite movies.People always say it was Training Day, Bolt said. But I loved 2 Guns because it was different.He wanted this movie to be different as well.I tried to talk about what Im feeling, what Im thinking, Bolt said. Thats what I really try to portray. I never try to be unoriginal. Cheap Titans Jerseys Authentic . PETERSBURG, Fla. Cheap DeMarco Murray Jersey . PAUL, Minn. http:///...derrick-henry-jersey . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes.

CLEVELAND -- Carlos Carrasco wasnt about to let a bug in his eye get in the way of winning a game.Carrasco overcame the bug -- followed by a home run one batter later -- and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Houston Astros 6-5 on Wednesday night.The game-time temperature was 87 degrees, causing swarms of midges to journey from Lake Erie to the muggy ballpark. A bug flew into Carrascos left eye as he threw a pitch to Yuli Gurriel in the fourth inning.That was weird, he said. I tried to throw a curveball and maybe threw it 20 feet.Carrasco bent over and a trainer made a brief visit to the mound. Gurriel singled on the next pitch and Colby Rasmus hit the first pitch into the seats in right field, giving Houston a 3-2 lead.It doesnt feel good, Carrasco said of the bug attack. Thats the first time this has happened to me but I had to come back and get people out.Carrasco (11-7) regrouped after the homer, allowing four runs in 7 1/3 innings.Players in the field and batters box spent the night slapping away the bugs.They were everywhere, Indians manager Terry Francona said. In the dugout its hard to sense it but when you get on the field, man, they were all over the place.Mike Napolis two-run homer off Doug Fister (12-11) gave Cleveland a 4-3 lead in the fifth. Pinch-hitter Brandon Guyer added a two-run double in the inning and the Indians extended their lead over Detroit to 5 1/2 games in the AL Central.Cody Allen gave up a leadoff single in the ninth, but struck out the next three batters, including Jose Altuve -- the ALs leading hitter -- to earn his 25th save.Those are situations you dont like them all the time but in hindsight you enjoy them, Allen said. Its competition at its best -- game on the line. Hes one of the best hitters in the game.The loss cost Houston a chance to gain ground in the AL wild card race. Cheap Tennessee Titans Jerseys.

Napoli hit his 31st homer -- a 433-foot blast three-quarters of the way up the bleachers in left field.Guyer, batting for Tyler Naquin, doubled in two more runs off Kevin Chapman.The whole fifth inning was a problem for us, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. We needed some guys to get some outs, but I didnt have a lot of guys available (out of the bullpen).Gurriel hit his first major league home run -- a two-run blast off Andrew Miller in the eighth.Lindor was 3 for 4 for his 23rd three-hit game, a major league high. Lonnie Chisenhall had three hits and an RBI for Cleveland.FIFTH SPOT UPDATEMike Clevinger will start for the Indians in Minnesota on Saturday.
