Just for a moment, say this with your best impression of that deep-throated movie trailer guy:Hes won two races down the famous Flemington straight six including the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap. Tony Dorsett Cowboys Jersey . Hell be there from the half way line and beyond. He is .... The Quarterback.Whether that really worked for you or not, The Quarterback will have to be the most popular name (if you pick your horses like that) with that growing number of younger punters who like their NFL.The Quarterbacks sire is the American stallion Street Boss. Before he even hit the track and got the name with which he bursts through packs today, creative minds quickly got to work on the stars and stripes connection.His stable name as a young horse was always Bruce because of the boss Bruce Springsteen; he got that name in his very early days when they were breaking him in, The Quarterbacks trainer, Robbie Griffiths, recalled in reference to the period when young horses are in the first stages of their education.From that, The Quarterback name eventually came along to go with all of the other USA connections.Rated the $5.50 second favourite with UBET for the Group 1 Darley Classic at Flemington on Saturday, The Quarterback takes on smart opposition including five-time Group 1 winner Lankan Rupee and last-start Group 2 Caulfield Sprint winner Our Boy Malachi, the $4.60 favourite.Im really happy with him, Griffiths told ESPN from his training base in Cranbourne, an hour east of Melbourne. Hes always been a horse that weve been able to peak him on a particular day, and we did that on Oaks Day last year for the 1000 metre race, which he won.Then we planned to have him at his best in the Newmarket [in March] -- not knowing whether hed be good enough -- but he still gave us his best performance and won. Were hoping to achieve that same goal [on Saturday].Everything is falling into place to this point; it is just a question of whether he is good enough again. Its a crackerjack race and no Group 1 race is easy to win. This race has got a lot of depth to it especially with Lankan Rupee returning to racing in good order. But our horse is ready to go and were hoping weve got the right one.While good form always plays a major part in being competitive in these races, The Quarterback has delivered especially when not expected to.His first up run was just brilliant in the Gilgai [Stakes at Flemington on 3 September] and then his run at Moonee Valley was fantastic [third in Manikato Stakes on Oct. 23] so hopefully we can be in the right place at the right time here. Fingers and toes, and everything, crossed.With nine wins and eight placings in 29 starts, including two wins over the straight Flemington 1200 metre course, The Quarterback has become somewhat of an all-American hero for his connections, particularly for Griffiths as the gelding provided him with his first Group 1 win as a trainer in the 2016 Newmarket Handicap in March.Most significantly, it was a special moment for a long-lasting friendship as highly respected form analyst Deane Lester is a part of The Quarterbacks ownership.From their initial meeting at morning trackwork at Cranbourne in 1982, when Griffiths was a budding apprentice jockey and Lester a horse strapper, they shared the thrill of winning at the highest level for the first time -- albeit a little later than Lesters initial prediction.We knocked on the door in 1994 when Id just turned 25; we had our first runner in a Group 1 race and ran third in the Toorak Handicap, Griffiths said of his stables first close encounter.Deane said if you got that close at your first attempt then a win is just around the corner. It was the ultimate early crow because it was 21 years before that win finally came.It is what it is and we really appreciated getting our first one but hopefully theres many more to come.The Darley Classic will be the final Group 1 race of the 2016 Spring Carnival. Charles Haley Cowboys Jersey .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. Deion Sanders Womens Jersey . 10 Texas Rangers jersey for one last time. Young formally announced his retirement Friday after returning to Rangers Ballpark, his baseball home for all but the last of his 13 major league seasons. http://www.cowboysfootballgearshop.com/cole-beasley-jersey/ . Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards. Forward Eduardo gave Ajaccio the lead in the sixth minute after being set up by right winger Benjamin Andre, and the Corsican side looked comfortable in the first half, with the lively Johan Cavalli causing problems with his probing runs from midfield.England one-day opener Jason Roy has gone from surf to turf. Growing up in South Africa, the now 25-year-old spent much of his time boarding on the waves but he will return to his birth country as an electrifying top-order batsman hoping to help England build on an ODI series win over Pakistan and the recent Test triumph over the Proteas.Roy, speaking on behalf of Slazenger cricket, told Sky Sports about his early years in Africa, how golf has kept him in nick over the winter, and THAT Ben Stokes innings in Cape Town.Plus, the swashbuckling Surrey star revealed why he will have plenty of support for the five ODIs and two T20Is against South Africa, games you can watch exclusively live on Sky Sports...Did you play much cricket as a kid?JASON ROY: Not much at all. I used to spend a lot of time down at the beach surfing, as well as playing rugby and messing about on my grandparents farm. Cricket only really became a big thing for me when I came over to England at around the age of nine.Who were your early cricketing heroes?JR: Definitely Brian Lara, Jacques Kallis and Ricky Ponting, while among the current generation, I looked up to Hashim Amla, Kevin Pietersen and Kumar Sangakkara, all of whom Ive been lucky enough to share a dressing room with at Surrey. Its been great to learn from those guys. I didnt really understand cricket as a kid and just tried to hit every ball out of the park. You could argue whats changed?, but I would like to think I am a little bit more controlled these days! Jason Roy You scored your first ODI hundred for England in the UAE before Christmas. How have you kept in nick since?JR: I had a few weeks off afterwards relaxing with friends and family, which was really nice as my first overseas tour with England was really intense. Since then, it has been pretty much every day training with Surrey, netting for a half a day and gyming it the rest of the time.Judging by your Twitter and Instagram, youve also been dusting off the golf clubs…JR: Ive squeezed in a couple of rounds! I absolutely love it, Ive got the bug and it gives me such a buzz. My mates reckon I have the potential to be really good, but I try not to think about technical aspects too much and just try to whack it. I dont think Im as good as KP yet, though, as he plays so much. Jason Roy and Kevin Pietersen (pictured) are occasional golfing buddies Are there any crossover skills between cricket and golf?JR: Obviously watching the ball is key in both sports but I sometimes find it easier hitting a moving cricket ball than a static golf ball. I suppose golf hopes me transfer my weight through the ball in cricket and vice versa.How much are you looking forward to getting back in the England camp, especially after the successful Test series against South Africa?JR: Being involved with England over the last year or so, you get a real appreciation of how hard the guys work, how much time and effort they have put into their games individually. It is great to see people like Rooty [Joe Root], a class act wherever he goes, and Stokesy [Ben Stokes] reaping the benefits of that. Watch Ben Stokes score the second fastest double century in history on day two of the second Test against South Africa What did you make of Stokes 258 in Cape Town? Did you see it?JR: It was amazing. Bill Bates Cowboys Jersey. I woke up to hear about it on Twitter and thought: He hasnt, has he? He just went berserk and impressed the world with his skill and power. Id seen him do it before, though, when he hit 15 sixes in a score of 151 not out for England Lions against South Africa A in a one-day game last year. I got 67, but he outdid me!It seems from the outside that there is a no-fear culture in the England dressing room. Is that how you see it?JR: There is a huge sense of freedom, with the way everyone chats to each other and the team talks we have. Its such a comfortable dressing room to be part of, and its like we have been working with each other for 20 years. I think that shows with some of the innings and shots we produce on the cricket field. When he does talk to you, he is extremely constructive but if he has nothing to say, hell keep quiet. Jason Roy on Trevor Bayliss What is Trevor Bayliss like to work with?JR: He is brilliantly honest. When he does talk to you, he is extremely constructive but if he has nothing to say, hell keep quiet. Him and Farby [Paul Farbrace] work so well together - theyll offer advice if you make a mistake in the nets but tell you that its up to you when you are out in the middle. They love the work hard ethos and players trying to make themselves better.Finally, will the Roy clan be out in force during the ODIs and T20Is?JR: My old man lives in England but he is flying out and will be coming to pretty much all the games. My mother will as well, as she lives in South Africa now. My aunt lives in Johannesburg and Ive got relatives in Durban so Im sure theyll make a pit-stop for one or two games.Jason Roy will be using the Slazenger V800 bat in the upcoming ODI and T20I series against South Africa, available to pre-order in March.

LAKEWOOD, N. Melvin Gordon Youth Jersey .J. -- A minor league baseball team in New Jersey affiliated with the Philadelphia Phillies is so confident that furballs and fly balls go together that they are inviting fans to bring their cats to this weekends game.Saturday is CATurday when the BlueClaws play the West Virginia Power in Lakewood.The players will wear special jerseys that feature dozens of orange, black and gray cat faces. The jerseys will be auctioned for the teams charity, which supports over 35 local nonprofit organizations, group sales director Kevin Fenstermacher said.The special jerseys are popular with teams, said Jeff Lantz, senior director of communications with Minor League Baseball. He said the El Paso (Texas) Chihuahuas did a jersey with a dog face on the front, and the Eugene (Oregon) Emeralds did a Portlandia jersey for the hit comedy TV series filmed in Portland, Oregon.But this is the first cat jersey I can recall, Lantz said.This isnt the first animal-themed game for the BlueClaws, whose logo is typically a blue crab.Media relations director Greg Giombarrese said their Bark in the Park event for dogs was successful, so they wanted to give cats some love, too.Fans can bring their cats, which are admitted with a $2 Paw Pass. But to prevent any catastrophes, fans must sign a waiver, and the felines must be in carriers or on leashes. The fans should also consider whether their pets can stand the noise and the crowd.An animal rescue group will be on hand to accept donations and to offer cats and kittens for adoption.Fans can have their cats displayed on the ballparks giant video screen, and the BlueClaws will feature special songs such as Take MEOW Out to the Ballgame. But some traditional baseball fans might not like singing, Buy me some cat nip and Cracker Jack. Lance Alworth Youth Jersey . SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. Joey Bosa Chargers Jersey . Reigning world champion Eve Muirhead of Scotland opened with a 12-2 rout of Winnipegs Jennifer Jones in a battle of teams bound for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. http://www.prochargersteamstore.com/Youth-Tyrell-Williams-Elite-Jersey/ . 8 Kansas to a 64-63 win over Texas Tech on Tuesday night. The freshman from Vaughan, Ont. NEW ORLEANS -- It may not be time just yet for the New Orleans Pelicans to press the panic button -- it will take a few more losses before fans demand the black box with the nuclear codes -- but their 0-3 start is as bad as it gets right now in the NBA, especially since theyve squandered monster numbers by All-Star Anthony Davis in two of the three losses.Unfortunately, Pelicans fans have seen this before. Last season, injury-riddled New Orleans fell prostrate at the starting gate, losing 11 of its first 12 games to dig a hole from which it never recovered during a 30-52 season.So, when the Pelicans host the 1-2 Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night at the Smoothie King Center, coach Alvin Gentry, despite his calm demeanor after practice on Monday, knows he needs a victory, and he needs it now.I think we need a win, obviously, Gentry said. If you win a game, it takes the pressure off. We have to establish something at home and be able to know that if we play our best basketball, we can win a game and not just play close.Davis is playing the role of solid soldier. He became the second player in NBA history (other than Michael Jordan) to score 50 points in a season opener since 1963-64 when he scored 50 (with 16 rebounds, seven steals, five assists and four blocks) in a 107-102 home loss to the Denver Nuggets, and he followed that up with 45 points in a 122-114 loss to the Golden State Warriors last Friday night.In a 98-79 road loss in San Antonio on Saturday, Davis was limited to just 18 points, lowering his scoring average to 37.7 points. Point guard Tim Frazier (13.7) and shooting guard ETwauun Moore (10. Dan Fouts Youth Jersey. .7) are the only other Pelicans scoring in double figures, and New Orleans ranks last in the league in 3-point percentage (.190) on 12-of-63 shooting.At some point, you have to make shots, Davis said. You have to start knocking them down. Were not shooting the ball well, and we have to find another way to win. And, its not just one guy. Its a couple of guys -- (rookie guard) Buddy (Hield), Solomon (Hill), Langston (Galloway). We have to find a way to make shots.Perhaps the Bucks will be the magic elixir that gives the Pelicans their first victory of the season. Milwaukees only win came on a buzzer-beating tip-in by John Henson that beat the Brooklyn Nets 110-108 on Saturday night.Coach Jason Kidd is toying with his lineup, trying to figure out the best bench rotations. Like the Pelicans, the Bucks are struggling from the outside, going 7 of 33 from long range in their two losses to Charlotte and Detroit.The Bucks, who are still figuring each other out, shot just 39 percent from the field against the Pistons.I dont think we can use that as an excuse, said guard Matthew Dellavedova, the Bucks free-agent pickup during the offseason. I think we need to get better.Kidd said he believes Dellavedova is very capable of running the point full time.I thought Delly had a great summer, being the point guard for Australia (in the Olympics), Kidd said. He ran the show, he and Patty Mills in the backcourt. Delly is a great complement to everybody.

Coming off a Thursday that was filled with multiple elite options and high-end hurlers in the middle tier, Friday feels like a bit of a letdown. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping . Sure, theres a bona fide ace at the top (Scherzer) and some high-upside names in the middle (Velasquez, Matz), but some less-than-ideal matchups mean there arent necessarily any no-brainer cash options this time around. Theres still enough depth available to offer plenty of lineup options; itll just take some work. With that in mind, lets get to it.PitchingEliteNot surprisingly, Max Scherzer draws the top Game Score of the day with a road start at San Francisco. That said, the Giants present a pretty unappealing matchup. Not only are the Giants above average offensively against right-handed pitching, they strike out just 17 percent of the time, which is the lowest rate in the National League. Armed with an 11.5 K/9 that ranks second best in baseball behind only Jose Fernandez, Scherzer carries high strikeout potential into every start. Still, youll want to keep expectations in check given the Giants ability to make contact. Scherzer still carries a safe floor for cash games, but the upside is lower than usual.Its rare that Kenta Maeda joins the elite tier, but thats where he finds himself on Thursday with a home matchup against Arizona. The Diamondbacks have been unimpressive versus righty pitching this season, putting up an 89 wRC+ and 23 percent strikeout rate, so its obviously a much friendlier spot than what Scherzer is matching up against. Then again, in his last six outings, Maeda has whiffed more than six batters just once and has just two quality starts, so hes not as safe, either.SolidOne of the days most appealing matchups belongs to Steven Matz, who is set to square off against the Rockies at Citi Field. In addition to being helpless against left-handed pitching this season, evidenced by an 86 wRC+ and 23 percent whiff rate, the Rox offense goes dormant whenever it leaves Coors Field (80 wRC+, 23 percent strikeout rate). After a rough June (5.74 ERA), Matz has settled down in July (3.24 ERA), and this is a matchup he should exploit. I like him in both cash games and tournaments on Friday.Just missing the elite tier is Vince Velasquez, who gets a road start against Atlanta. Its a terrific matchup. Although the Braves arent a big strikeout team, they have the worst offense in baseball against right-handed pitching (75 wRC+). For his part, Velasquez has high-end whiff potential (10.1 K/9) and owns a 2.70 ERA since returning from the DL in late June. However, his cash appeal is somewhat limited by the fact that hes pitched past the sixth inning just twice in 17 starts this season and has not fared well on the road (4.89 ERA).Over his last seven starts, Jon Lester owns a 5.89 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. He also sports a 4.7 walk rate with 10 homers allowed in those seven outings. Needless to say, Lester seems to be in a bit of a funk. With a decent home matchup against Seattle on tap, the southpaw is worth some GPP consideration given that hes likely to be underowned. However, his recent performance is making me steer clear in cash for now. Granted, with the days only afternoon start time, his DFS availability will be limited anyway.After a brilliant June (2.01 ERA), Trevor Bauer has stumbled a bit so far in July (5.66 ERA). However, Fridays matchup against Oakland might be what needs to get back on track. The As have been the worst team in the American League against righties this season (88 wRC+), and things havent been any better in July (87 wRC+). If youre looking to save cap space, hes worth consideration as an SP2 on multi-pitcher sites.Jose Quintana continues to make sense as a solid cash-game play if you dont want to pay top dollar for one of the elite arms. He offers great start-to-start stability from a run prevention standpoint and still misses enough bats to matter. With the Twins on the schedule, Quintana gets an offense thats slightly above average against lefties but also strikes out at a healthy 23 percent clip. Maybe hes a little boring, but boring is OK in cash games.StreamersJake Odorizzi is coming off his best start of the season, as he tossed eight shutout innings against Oakland last Friday. Hes in another spot to thrive this Friday with the Yankees coming to town. New York has put up an 88 wRC+ versus righties this season, which is something Odorizzi should be able to exploit. Hes still a free agent in more than half of ESPN leagues.Colin McHughs ESPN.com ownership is just 42 percent, but its no surprise that that number is on the rise. After all, the right-hander has posted a 2.49 ERA and 9.0 K/9 over his last seven starts. Detroit may have a lineup that can do some damage, but the Tigers have been struggling offensively in July (86 wRC+) and strike out 22 percent of the time versus right-handed pitching.Available in 57 percent of ESPN.com leagues, Mike Leake carries some streaming appeal against a Marlins team thats below average against right-handed pitching. The Cardinals righty has been a bit up-and-down of late, but hes in a decent spot if you need innings or are chasing wins.Tyler Chatwood doesnt get much attention in fantasy due to being a Colorado Rockies pitcher, but he becomes interesting when hes away from Coors Field. In eight road starts this season, the right-hander owns a pristine 1.30 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. Traveling to Citi Field to take on a Mets team thats below average versus righties and strikes out a lot puts Chatwood in a very nice spot on Friday.AvoidBrandon Finnegan has struggled mightily this season but a start against the lowly Padres would at least make him a decent streaming option, right? Wrong. While the Padres lineup is one of the worst in baseball against right-handed pitching (82 wRC+), it might surprise you to learn that its actually been the best in baseball against lefty pitching (119 wRC+). Keep the Reds lefty on the waiver wire.HittingTim Lincecum is the worst-ranked starter of the day. He has been hammered by both left- (.377 wOBA) and right-handed (.584 wOBA) bats. The Red Sox, meanwhile, have been the most lethal team in baseball versus right-handed pitching this season. This one could get ugly in a hurry, so youll definitely want some exposure to the Boston bats. Mookie Betts, Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts, David Ortiz, Hanley Ramirez and Jackie Bradley Jr. are all top-tier plays here. Go nuts.We already discussed avoiding Finnegan against the Padres, who hammer left-handed pitching, so it stands to reason that theyll have some bats worth targeting. Youll want to focus on righty swingers, with Wil Myers and Matt Kemp being the most desirable targets.Edwin Jackson has made only two starts this season, and he holds a 2.92 ERA in those two starts. That said, hes also walked more than hes struck out in 23 innings this season and owns a 6.24 xFIP, which hasnt caught up to his 4.30 ERA just yet. Take a look at lefty sluggers Jay Bruce and Joey Votto in this one.The Cardinals lineup has been the best in the NL this season against right-handed pitching (113 wRC+), and that could spell trouble for Jose Urena on Friday. The Dodgers righty owns a 5.28 ERA in 38 career appearances (11 starts) to go along with an ugly 4.7 K/9. There are plenty of Cardinals bats worth considering here regardless of platoon advantage, making this a good time to stack.Most likely to go yard: Chris CarterOriginally this call was made when Jeff Locke was scheduled, but hes since been replaced by Steven Brault.

Coming off a Thursday that was filled with multiple elite options and high-end hurlers in the middle tier, Friday feels like a bit of a letdown. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping . Sure, theres a bona fide ace at the top (Scherzer) and some high-upside names in the middle (Velasquez, Matz), but some less-than-ideal matchups mean there arent necessarily any no-brainer cash options this time around. Theres still enough depth available to offer plenty of lineup options; itll just take some work. With that in mind, lets get to it.PitchingEliteNot surprisingly, Max Scherzer draws the top Game Score of the day with a road start at San Francisco. That said, the Giants present a pretty unappealing matchup. Not only are the Giants above average offensively against right-handed pitching, they strike out just 17 percent of the time, which is the lowest rate in the National League. Armed with an 11.5 K/9 that ranks second best in baseball behind only Jose Fernandez, Scherzer carries high strikeout potential into every start. Still, youll want to keep expectations in check given the Giants ability to make contact. Scherzer still carries a safe floor for cash games, but the upside is lower than usual.Its rare that Kenta Maeda joins the elite tier, but thats where he finds himself on Thursday with a home matchup against Arizona. The Diamondbacks have been unimpressive versus righty pitching this season, putting up an 89 wRC+ and 23 percent strikeout rate, so its obviously a much friendlier spot than what Scherzer is matching up against. Then again, in his last six outings, Maeda has whiffed more than six batters just once and has just two quality starts, so hes not as safe, either.SolidOne of the days most appealing matchups belongs to Steven Matz, who is set to square off against the Rockies at Citi Field. In addition to being helpless against left-handed pitching this season, evidenced by an 86 wRC+ and 23 percent whiff rate, the Rox offense goes dormant whenever it leaves Coors Field (80 wRC+, 23 percent strikeout rate). After a rough June (5.74 ERA), Matz has settled down in July (3.24 ERA), and this is a matchup he should exploit. I like him in both cash games and tournaments on Friday.Just missing the elite tier is Vince Velasquez, who gets a road start against Atlanta. Its a terrific matchup. Although the Braves arent a big strikeout team, they have the worst offense in baseball against right-handed pitching (75 wRC+). For his part, Velasquez has high-end whiff potential (10.1 K/9) and owns a 2.70 ERA since returning from the DL in late June. However, his cash appeal is somewhat limited by the fact that hes pitched past the sixth inning just twice in 17 starts this season and has not fared well on the road (4.89 ERA).Over his last seven starts, Jon Lester owns a 5.89 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. He also sports a 4.7 walk rate with 10 homers allowed in those seven outings. Needless to say, Lester seems to be in a bit of a funk. With a decent home matchup against Seattle on tap, the southpaw is worth some GPP consideration given that hes likely to be underowned. However, his recent performance is making me steer clear in cash for now. Granted, with the days only afternoon start time, his DFS availability will be limited anyway.After a brilliant June (2.01 ERA), Trevor Bauer has stumbled a bit so far in July (5.66 ERA). However, Fridays matchup against Oakland might be what needs to get back on track. The As have been the worst team in the American League against righties this season (88 wRC+), and things havent been any better in July (87 wRC+). If youre looking to save cap space, hes worth consideration as an SP2 on multi-pitcher sites.Jose Quintana continues to make sense as a solid cash-game play if you dont want to pay top dollar for one of the elite arms. He offers great start-to-start stability from a run prevention standpoint and still misses enough bats to matter. With the Twins on the schedule, Quintana gets an offense thats slightly above average against lefties but also strikes out at a healthy 23 percent clip. Maybe hes a little boring, but boring is OK in cash games.StreamersJake Odorizzi is coming off his best start of the season, as he tossed eight shutout innings against Oakland last Friday. Hes in another spot to thrive this Friday with the Yankees coming to town. New York has put up an 88 wRC+ versus righties this season, which is something Odorizzi should be able to exploit. Hes still a free agent in more than half of ESPN leagues.Colin McHughs ESPN.com ownership is just 42 percent, but its no surprise that that number is on the rise. After all, the right-hander has posted a 2.49 ERA and 9.0 K/9 over his last seven starts. Detroit may have a lineup that can do some damage, but the Tigers have been struggling offensively in July (86 wRC+) and strike out 22 percent of the time versus right-handed pitching.Available in 57 percent of ESPN.com leagues, Mike Leake carries some streaming appeal against a Marlins team thats below average against right-handed pitching. The Cardinals righty has been a bit up-and-down of late, but hes in a decent spot if you need innings or are chasing wins.Tyler Chatwood doesnt get much attention in fantasy due to being a Colorado Rockies pitcher, but he becomes interesting when hes away from Coors Field. In eight road starts this season, the right-hander owns a pristine 1.30 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. Traveling to Citi Field to take on a Mets team thats below average versus righties and strikes out a lot puts Chatwood in a very nice spot on Friday.AvoidBrandon Finnegan has struggled mightily this season but a start against the lowly Padres would at least make him a decent streaming option, right? Wrong. While the Padres lineup is one of the worst in baseball against right-handed pitching (82 wRC+), it might surprise you to learn that its actually been the best in baseball against lefty pitching (119 wRC+). Keep the Reds lefty on the waiver wire.HittingTim Lincecum is the worst-ranked starter of the day. He has been hammered by both left- (.377 wOBA) and right-handed (.584 wOBA) bats. The Red Sox, meanwhile, have been the most lethal team in baseball versus right-handed pitching this season. This one could get ugly in a hurry, so youll definitely want some exposure to the Boston bats. Mookie Betts, Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts, David Ortiz, Hanley Ramirez and Jackie Bradley Jr. are all top-tier plays here. Go nuts.We already discussed avoiding Finnegan against the Padres, who hammer left-handed pitching, so it stands to reason that theyll have some bats worth targeting. Youll want to focus on righty swingers, with Wil Myers and Matt Kemp being the most desirable targets.Edwin Jackson has made only two starts this season, and he holds a 2.92 ERA in those two starts. That said, hes also walked more than hes struck out in 23 innings this season and owns a 6.24 xFIP, which hasnt caught up to his 4.30 ERA just yet. Take a look at lefty sluggers Jay Bruce and Joey Votto in this one.The Cardinals lineup has been the best in the NL this season against right-handed pitching (113 wRC+), and that could spell trouble for Jose Urena on Friday. The Dodgers righty owns a 5.28 ERA in 38 career appearances (11 starts) to go along with an ugly 4.7 K/9. There are plenty of Cardinals bats worth considering here regardless of platoon advantage, making this a good time to stack.Most likely to go yard: Chris CarterOriginally this call was made when Jeff Locke was scheduled, but hes since been replaced by Steven Brault. Brault is also a lefty and Miller Park greatly inflates right-handed power. Still sounds like a great time for Carter to muscle up.Most likely to swipe a bag: Mookie BettsIm high on Matz on Friday, but the fact remains that hes allowed 15 stolen bases this season, the third most in baseball.

Although the Braves arent a big strikeout team, they have the worst offense in baseball against right-handed pitching (75 wRC+). For his part, Velasquez has high-end whiff potential (10.1 K/9) and owns a 2.70 ERA since returning from the DL in late June. However, his cash appeal is somewhat limited by the fact that hes pitched past the sixth inning just twice in 17 starts this season and has not fared well on the road (4.89 ERA).Over his last seven starts, Jon Lester owns a 5.89 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. He also sports a 4.7 walk rate with 10 homers allowed in those seven outings. Needless to say, Lester seems to be in a bit of a funk. With a decent home matchup against Seattle on tap, the southpaw is worth some GPP consideration given that hes likely to be underowned. However, his recent performance is making me steer clear in cash for now. Granted, with the days only afternoon start time, his DFS availability will be limited anyway.After a brilliant June (2.01 ERA), Trevor Bauer has stumbled a bit so far in July (5.66 ERA). However, Fridays matchup against Oakland might be what needs to get back on track. The As have been the worst team in the American League against righties this season (88 wRC+), and things havent been any better in July (87 wRC+). If youre looking to save cap space, hes worth consideration as an SP2 on multi-pitcher sites.Jose Quintana continues to make sense as a solid cash-game play if you dont want to pay top dollar for one of the elite arms. He offers great start-to-start stability from a run prevention standpoint and still misses enough bats to matter. With the Twins on the schedule, Quintana gets an offense thats slightly above average against lefties but also strikes out at a healthy 23 percent clip. Maybe hes a little boring, but boring is OK in cash games.StreamersJake Odorizzi is coming off his best start of the season, as he tossed eight shutout innings against Oakland last Friday. Hes in another spot to thrive this Friday with the Yankees coming to town. New York has put up an 88 wRC+ versus righties this season, which is something Odorizzi should be able to exploit. Hes still a free agent in more than half of ESPN leagues.Colin McHughs ESPN.com ownership is just 42 percent, but its no surprise that that number is on the rise. After all, the right-hander has posted a 2.49 ERA and 9.0 K/9 over his last seven starts. Detroit may have a lineup that can do some damage, but the Tigers have been struggling offensively in July (86 wRC+) and strike out 22 percent of the time versus right-handed pitching.Available in 57 percent of ESPN.com leagues, Mike Leake carries some streaming appeal against a Marlins team thats below average against right-handed pitching. The Cardinals righty has been a bit up-and-down of late, but hes in a decent spot if you need innings or are chasing wins.Tyler Chatwood doesnt get much attention in fantasy due to being a Colorado Rockies pitcher, but he becomes interesting when hes away from Coors Field. In eight road starts this season, the right-hander owns a pristine 1.30 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. Traveling to Citi Field to take on a Mets team thats below average versus righties and strikes out a lot puts Chatwood in a very nice spot on Friday.AvoidBrandon Finnegan has struggled mightily this season but a start against the lowly Padres would at least make him a decent streaming option, right? Wrong. While the Padres lineup is one of the worst in baseball against right-handed pitching (82 wRC+), it might surprise you to learn that its actually been the best in baseball against lefty pitching (119 wRC+). Keep the Reds lefty on the waiver wire.HittingTim Lincecum is the worst-ranked starter of the day. He has been hammered by both left- (.377 wOBA) and right-handed (.584 wOBA) bats. The Red Sox, meanwhile, have been the most lethal team in baseball versus right-handed pitching this season. This one could get ugly in a hurry, so youll definitely want some exposure to the Boston bats. Mookie Betts, Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts, David Ortiz, Hanley Ramirez and Jackie Bradley Jr. are all top-tier plays here. Go nuts.We already discussed avoiding Finnegan against the Padres, who hammer left-handed pitching, so it stands to reason that theyll have some bats worth targeting. Youll want to focus on righty swingers, with Wil Myers and Matt Kemp being the most desirable targets.Edwin Jackson has made only two starts this season, and he holds a 2.92 ERA in those two starts. That said, hes also walked more than hes struck out in 23 innings this season and owns a 6.24 xFIP, which hasnt caught up to his 4.30 ERA just yet. Take a look at lefty sluggers Jay Bruce and Joey Votto in this one.The Cardinals lineup has been the best in the NL this season against right-handed pitching (113 wRC+), and that could spell trouble for Jose Urena on Friday. The Dodgers righty owns a 5.28 ERA in 38 career appearances (11 starts) to go along with an ugly 4.7 K/9. There are plenty of Cardinals bats worth considering here regardless of platoon advantage, making this a good time to stack.Most likely to go yard: Chris CarterOriginally this call was made when Jeff Locke was scheduled, but hes since been replaced by Steven Brault. Brault is also a lefty and Miller Park greatly inflates right-handed power. Still sounds like a great time for Carter to muscle up.Most likely to swipe a bag: Mookie BettsIm high on Matz on Friday, but the fact remains that hes allowed 15 stolen bases this season, the third most in baseball. With the Rockies in town, Charlie Blackmon will be off to the races if he reaches first base. China Jerseys Authentic . -- Yogi Ferrell orchestrates pretty much everything in Indianas offence.

According to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the 6-foot-8 power forward will ink a two-year deal worth $19 million when contracts can officially be signed on July 10.

Coming off a Thursday that was filled with multiple elite options and high-end hurlers in the middle tier, Friday feels like a bit of a letdown. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping . Sure, theres a bona fide ace at the top (Scherzer) and some high-upside names in the middle (Velasquez, Matz), but some less-than-ideal matchups mean there arent necessarily any no-brainer cash options this time around. Theres still enough depth available to offer plenty of lineup options; itll just take some work. With that in mind, lets get to it.PitchingEliteNot surprisingly, Max Scherzer draws the top Game Score of the day with a road start at San Francisco. That said, the Giants present a pretty unappealing matchup. Not only are the Giants above average offensively against right-handed pitching, they strike out just 17 percent of the time, which is the lowest rate in the National League. Armed with an 11.5 K/9 that ranks second best in baseball behind only Jose Fernandez, Scherzer carries high strikeout potential into every start. Still, youll want to keep expectations in check given the Giants ability to make contact. Scherzer still carries a safe floor for cash games, but the upside is lower than usual.Its rare that Kenta Maeda joins the elite tier, but thats where he finds himself on Thursday with a home matchup against Arizona. The Diamondbacks have been unimpressive versus righty pitching this season, putting up an 89 wRC+ and 23 percent strikeout rate, so its obviously a much friendlier spot than what Scherzer is matching up against. Then again, in his last six outings, Maeda has whiffed more than six batters just once and has just two quality starts, so hes not as safe, either.SolidOne of the days most appealing matchups belongs to Steven Matz, who is set to square off against the Rockies at Citi Field. In addition to being helpless against left-handed pitching this season, evidenced by an 86 wRC+ and 23 percent whiff rate, the Rox offense goes dormant whenever it leaves Coors Field (80 wRC+, 23 percent strikeout rate). After a rough June (5.74 ERA), Matz has settled down in July (3.24 ERA), and this is a matchup he should exploit. I like him in both cash games and tournaments on Friday.Just missing the elite tier is Vince Velasquez, who gets a road start against Atlanta. Its a terrific matchup.

BERKELEY, Calif. Wholesale Ravens Jerseys . -- The 7,500 mile trip, 17-hour time difference, and all the hoopla surrounding the first college football game played in Australia in three decades was easy.The hard part for the Cal Bears was coming home.We felt great there, the real problem was getting back here, senior quarterback Davis Webb said.Fortunately for the Bears, they had a bye week to regroup from their globe-trotting, and by all accounts theyve recovered from the jetlag and hangover from a trip that was punctuated with a 51-32 victory over Hawaii at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on Aug. 26.And now its all business for Cal as it prepares for Saturdays matchup with San Diego State.We feel good now, weve adjusted, Webb said. Now were ready for San Diego State.The Bears practiced in full pads twice and had two light practice days during their bye week, Cal coach Sonny Dykes said.We probably needed an open week coming off of that long trip to Australia and the travel and our guys getting rolling back academically, Dykes said. It was good to have a little bit of time to get back in the flow last week and get back and get our feet under us.Getting back in the flow was especially important because the Bears missed some practices in Sydney due to bad weather and stadium issues. Dykes said hes determined to make up for that lost time he believes was a factor in his team playing a less physical game than he expected.I felt that coming out of fall camp that we were a really physical football team, and then we got to Australia and we had some field issues and I felt like in some ways we lost that physical edge that we had had in camp, Dykes said. It felt like we needed to get it back last week.Senior offensive lineman Chris Borrayo might have been the only player that didnt need to get it back. He never adjusted to the Australian time change in the first place.The funny thing is, coming back from Australia, I was never accustomed to the jetlag from there, so every night Id be waking up around 5 oclock or 6 oclock, just trying get some more rest, he said. When I got back here it took me about a day adjusted back to the time.Cal players took in some of the culture along with the football.Sophomore defensive end Cameron Saffle visited Sydneys iconic Harbour Bridge and Opera House. He and sophomore nickelback Trey Turner learned about indigenous culture during a meeting with aboriginal Australians.A lot of our team had never been out of the country so it was pretty awesome, he said. The trip was an amazing experience. It gave our team a lot of perspective.

The World Anti-Doping Agency provisionally suspended the Moscow Antidoping Center on Sunday, saying its operations must improve or a six-month ban on the facilitys accreditation will be imposed. NEW YORK -- WNBA players arent the only ones who cant understand why their social activism has resulted in fines by the league.New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony has their backs, too.The Indiana Fever, New York Liberty and Phoenix Mercury and their players were fined by the WNBA for wearing black warm-up shirts in the wake of recent shootings by and against police officers.All three teams were fined $5,000 and each player was fined $500, as the shirts violated the leagues uniform policy. While the black shirts were the Adidas brand -- the official outfitter of the league -- WNBA rules state that uniforms may not be altered in any way.Whats most upsetting is the way it was handled, Indiana Fever player rep Briann January said. You have a league that is 90 -- if not above 90 -- percent African-American and you have an issue that is directly affecting them and the people they know, and you have a league that isnt willing to side with them.Its not a race issue, not an anti-police issue, not a black or white issue. Its a right or wrong issue.?Anthony, among those trying to get athletes to take a more active role in social issues, agrees with January and her fellow players that the fines are misguided.I dont see no reason to fine them. If anything, you should want to support them, Anthony said Thursday. I dont know details, but dont see a reason to fine them.?A bunch of teams did it and individuals did it. Everybody has their own freedom of speech. If they decide to use the platforms to do that, I dont see any reasons for anybody to get fined. We did it. The NBA did it two years ago. The NBA was very supportive. I dont see why it would be different this time. ?WNBA president Lisa Borders said Wednesday night in a statement to The Associated Press that the fines were not about the players speaking out on a social issue.We are proud of WNBA players engagement and passionate advocacy for non-violent solutions to difficult social issues but expect them to comply with the leagues uniform guidelines, Borders said.?Nonetheless, Fever All-Star Tamika Catchings, who is retiring at the end of the season and is the president of the players union, expressed disappointment in the WNBAs actions.Instead of the league taking a stance with us, where they tell us they appreciate our expressing our concerns like they did for Orlando, were fighting against each other, she said, referencing the Orlando nightclub shooting that resulted in 49 deaths.The league was quick to give every team shirts in the wake of the Orlando tragedy in June, and the players wore them.We were OK with that, we wanted to support that, but also they cant pick and choose what initiatives to support and what not to support just because it doesnt push their agenda, Liberty guard Tanisha Wright said. This is important to us.Typical WNBA fines for technical fouls or such are about half the $500 amount the players were fined for wearing the black shirts. WNBA rookies like New Yorks Adut Bulgak make roughly $40,000, so the fine is about 1/80th of a first-year players salary.?The Liberty have worn the plain black shirts four times, including Wednesday morning against Washington. They didnt wear them on Thursday in their matinee game against the Fever, opting for their normal black shirts with the Liberty logo. Tina Charles did wear her warm-up shirt inside out.After seeing the African-American male shot three times after heelping an autistic person out this morning in Florida, I knew I couldnt be silent, Charles said after the Liberty lost to the Fever. Cheap Joe Flacco Jersey. Knowing the player I am representing this organization, if anybody was going to wear it, it had to be me. I have no problem wearing this shirt inside out for the rest of the season until we are able to have the WNBA support us.In a show of solidarity, the Liberty and Fever chose to speak after the game only about social awareness, politely declining any questions about Thursdays contest.Charles is looking forward to discussing future actions at the Olympics, where shell have a chance to talk with her teammates on the womens national team and NBA players on the U.S. mens team.Being able to see how they feel and what they want to do, coming collectively together, Charles said. Seeing the other 11 WNBA teams, how we basically just did a media blackout, if they are up for doing the same thing.The Washington Mystics followed the Liberty and Fevers lead after playing the Los Angeles Sparks on Friday night.We definitely wanted to show our support for those teams that did get fined for wearing just plain black Adidas shirts, Mystics guard Natasha Cloud said, according to USA Today. Were allowed to wear whatever we want to the games, to and from the games, so if theyre going to take away our right and our voice to advocate for something so important to 70 percent of the league which is African-American, well find other ways to do it, and other ways to do it is to wear our shirts to and from the game and use the media to [express ourselves].NBA players previously have taken a stand in support of victims of police brutality without being fined. LeBron James and Derrick Rose wore I Cant Breathe shirts in honor of a Staten Island man who died after police placed him a choke hold in 2014. NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement after the players wore the shirts that he supported the players for expressing their personal views but preferred they adhere to on-court attire rules.No NBA players wore the I Cant Breathe shirts after Silvers statements.The WNBA fined players after they ignored a league memo earlier this week to the teams reminding them of the uniform policy. The memo was sent out after Minnesota, New York and Dallas players wore shirts in remembrance of two men who were shot by police and the five Dallas police officers who were killed in an attack on July 7.The Lynx wore their shirts only once and said they will shift their focus to addressing the issue in other ways. After wearing shirts with #BlackLivesMatter and #Dallas5 for one game, the Liberty reached what the players said was a compromise, wearing plain black shirts bearing only the Adidas logo. For now they are back to wearing their normal warm-ups.The league will go on a monthlong Olympic hiatus beginning Saturday, but January said players will continue to actively engage in the social discussion.I think theres a lot of people in our league who are very passionate about it. As a player rep we are going to continue having these conversations, she said. The timing of them releasing the statement and giving us the papers was very timely on their part.Information from ESPNs Ian Begley and The Associated Press was used in this report.
