SEATTLE -- Getting Wade Miley back from the disabled list might not be the ticket to the Seattle Mariners getting back into the pennant race, but its a step in the right direction for a rotation thats had a rough June. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping .The veteran left-hander is scheduled to be back on the mound when the Mariners host Pittsburgh on Wednesday night, the final game of a two-game series with the Pirates (37-41).Miley (6-3) was eligible to come off the disabled list Tuesday night and is listed as the Mariners probable starter for Wednesdays game. Shoulder soreness landed him on the DL, costing the Mariners one of their veteran starters during a month when three of them -- Miley, Felix Hernandez and Taijuan Walker -- missed starts because of injury.Miley and Walker are expected back in the rotation this week, while Hernandez threw 15 pitches off a mound Tuesday and looks on track to be back in the rotation by early- to mid-July. Getting all the arms back, combined with the successful start of newcomer Wade LeBlanc last week, left the Mariners (39-38) with a tough decision to make -- and manager Scott Servais did just that when he announced veteran starter Nathan Karns would work out of the bullpen.Our club certainly welcomes the arm down there, Servais told reporters before Tuesdays game. But more importantly, get him a breather, get him back on track.Pittsburghs rotation has had its share of issues as well this season, and the Pirates are hoping that touted prospect Jameson Taillon can help provide some stability. The 24-year-old right-hander is scheduled to make his fifth career start Wednesday night, having struggled his last two times out.With veterans Gerrit Cole and Ryan Vogelsong ailing, and the rest of the rotation falling on hard times, the Pirates look to Taillon and fellow rookie Chad Kuhl to make an immediate impact. Kuhls next start -- his MLB debut came over the weekend -- is scheduled to come Saturday at Oakland.The Pirates could use a shot of youth in a rotation that has been struggling as of late. Jonathon Niese was the latest starter to have an off night as he allowed nine hits and five runs (four earned) over 4 2/3 innings in Tuesday nights 5-2 loss at Seattle.In the fifth inning, Niese said, it just unraveled.That phrase also applies to both teams seasons because in large part to starting pitching. Neither rotation is hitting on all cylinders right now.The Mariners are hoping that some healthy arms might get them back on track. Getting Hernandez back on the mound is of particular importance, so his brief bullpen session was a step toward resolving that issue.His arm looks great, Servais said. Obviously, its fresh. NFL Jerseys Outlet Store . It is a cliché dragged out by fans and pundits regularly when discussions take place around which teams are better than others. Discount Jerseys .

OAKVILLE, Ont. Nike Air Max Plus Cheap . -- Brandt Snedeker has the clubhouse lead through 54 holes at the RBC Canadian Open. The 32-year-old American shot 63 on Saturday and sits 14 under after three rounds at Glen Abbey Golf Club.

At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014. WASHINGTON -- Shortly after Jesse Owens returned home from his snubbing by Adolph Hitler at the 1936 Olympics, he and Americas 17 other black Olympians found a less-than-welcoming reception from their own government, as well.On Thursday, relatives of those 1936 African-American Olympians will be welcomed to the White House and will get to shake the presidents hand -- an honor Owens and the others didnt receive, the way some of their white counterparts did, after they returned home from Berlin 80 years ago.U.S. Olympic Committee CEO Scott Blackmun announced the visit Wednesday night at a Team USA Awards ceremony.That is why Im here 80 years later, to recognize the senselessness (of not inviting them to the White House), and to pay tribute to all the progress that has come since, Blackmun said.The announcement came on the same night the USOC invited Tommie Smith and John Carlos, who were booted from the 1968 Olympics for their gloved-fist protest on the medals stand, to be part of the awards show. Smith and Carlos hadnt been involved in an official USOC event since being sent home from Mexico City. The gold- and bronze-medal-winning sprinters will be at the White House on Thursday, as well.At the 1936 Olympics , Owens won four gold medals, but it was the messsage Owens victories sent by winning in Nazi Germany and undercutting Hitlers white-supremacy dogma that stood as the lasting memory of those games. Wholesale Nike Air Max Plus. .Owens returned to a segregated America where he had trouble finding steady work and where, according to his interviews in later years, the president, Franklin Roosevelt, never sent him any words of congratulations or an invitation to the White House.Decades later, Owens was acknowledged and honored at the White House. In 1976, President Gerald Ford presented him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.The stories of the other 17 blacks on that team were less-widely known. Thursdays event was meant to give a long-overdue White House recognition to those athletes, who accounted for 14 of Americas 56 medals in Berlin.Owens daughter, Marlene Owens-Rankin, will be among the relatives at the White House.To be able to go to the White House 80 years later with Barack Obama as president and also with the other 1936 Olympians that really didnt get the exposure that my grandfather did, for various reasons, I think it would make him so happy, said Owens granddaughter, Marlene Dortch.

Slaven Bilic blamed a flat performance and a very cheap goal as West Ham were held to a 1-1 draw by Stoke in east London. Nike Air Max 95 Outlet Uk . The Hammers struggled to get going before half-time but took the lead moments after a Bilic reshuffle as Michail Antonios header deflected in off Glenn Whelan.But Adrian gifted Stoke substitute Bojan an equaliser as he rushed from his goal and was beaten to a long ball by Jon Walters. The error denied West Ham a third straight win in front of their own supporters, and Bilic told Sky Sports: It was a mistake. Mistakes happen, and unfortunately he made one because he misjudged the timing.It was very cheap at a crucial moment of the game when youre 1-0 up and playing good. We knew theyd throw bodies up front and hit long balls but still...very cheap goal. Highlights of West Ham 1-1 Stoke The Hammers boss was at a loss to explain his sides lack of threat, remedied only when he made a double change in the second half and sent Antonio and Ashley Fletcher to play as a two-man strikeforce.We looked sharp in training and in the last few games, and there was really no reason. We didnt have a midweek game. It was just...flat.A point is a point and its a fair result but we were looking for three. It wasnt a good game of football and no team deserved to win.Our first half was flat - we didnt start on our front foot. In the second half we improved a lot. We changed it a little bit and we scored the goal.Until they equalised we played good and created some good moments but then we conceded - from our point of view - a very cheap goal and it cost us the result.

SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Jeff Fisher thought receiver Brian Quick got both feet down on a sideline catch in the third quarter, but the Los Angeles Rams coach couldnt find the red challenge flag in the bulky parka he was wearing on a chilly day in New England.Digging through his pockets with no success , Fisher eventually just told the sideline referee he wanted a replay review.

The San Francisco 49ers and Colin Kaepernick have signed a restructuring of the quarterbacks contract, wiping out the final four years and turning it into a two-year deal with a player option for the second year, sources told ESPN. Wholesale Puma Shoes Free Shipping .The monetary value of the deal for this year remains the same, with the second year, should Kaepernick choose to stay, carrying a $16.5 million salary but no money guaranteed.The 49ers confirmed that they had reworked the quarterbacks contract but did not announce any additional details.?Sources told ESPN that Kaepernick can void the deal after this season, before the new league year begins in March, allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent if he chooses. The 49ers will not be allowed to use their franchise tag on him.Given that whether Kaepernick is on the roster is ultimately up to him, his 46-man roster bonuses are converted into guaranteed salary. A playing-time bonus and insurance policy are also part of the restructured deal.Because the contract was altered this season, the 49ers are not eligible to receive a compensatory pick if Kaepernick signs elsewhere after the season.The two sides had spent months trying to rework the contract -- dating back to San Franciscos trade conversations with the Denver Broncos in the spring -- but the talks heated up over the past four weeks.Asked Tuesday if he felt any pressure to have a reworked contract before he started Sundays game, Kaepernick said, No, I feel no pressure. But he did acknowledge, We have had discussions.Should Kaepernick elect to opt out after the season, his $16.5 million in base salary for 2017 will come off San Franciscos books.Last season, the Washington Redskins would not play Robert Griffin III for fear that he could get hurt and the team would be on the hook for his contract the next year. The 49ers had been unwilling to play Kaepernick so far this season for a variety of reasons; coach Chip Kelly, who named Kaepernick as his starting quarterback Tuesday, has denied that the quarterbacks contract entered into his decision.But a reworked contract gives the 49ers more flexibility and security and offers Kaepernick the ability to depart San Francisco after this season, so it would appear to be a win-win for both sides.Information from ESPN staff writer Nick Wagoner was used in this report. Cheap Puma Shoes Free Shipping .

NEW YORK -- No matter how good Jose Fernandez is, the Miami Marlins arent going anywhere this season if they dont start scoring.Yoenis Cespedes homered with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the New York Mets a 2-1 victory over Miami in the first game of a pivotal series between National League playoff contenders Monday night.It was the latest offensive flop for the slumping Marlins, who have totaled two runs while losing three straight games. Theyve dropped five of seven overall and mustered only 20 runs in their last nine.Weve got to keep moving. I thought our guys had good energy today. They were in the game. There wasnt a dragging of the heads or anything like that, manager Don Mattingly said. Were going to come out of that and put some runs on the board.Jose Reyes dashed home to score the tying run in the eighth on a dangerous collision at the plate, and the Mets pulled even with Miami for second place in the NL East. Both teams are 2 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the leagues second wild card.We know how close we are, and we know what we can accomplish, and were giving everything on the field, Fernandez said after his first scoreless outing on the road this year. Its just unfortunate that its not happening for us right now.Chasing their first postseason berth since 2003, the Marlins havent homered in seven games -- their longest drought since April 2013.Injuries to sluggers Giancarlo Stanton and Justin Bour havent helped, but thats not all of it, Mattingly explained.Even before those guys got hurt, it wasnt exactly a juggernaut, he said before the game.In the opener of a four-game set, the Mets appeared overmatched on the mound. New York was shut out for six innings by Fernandez, but Rafael Montero also put up zeros in his first major league start since April 2015.Recalled from Double-A Binghamton before the game, Montero gave up two hits in five innings and worked around a career-high six walks -- most by a Mets starter since May 2014. Still, the Marlins failed to capitalize.It was one of those games that you dont expect to go win, Mets manager Terry Collins said.Rookie left-hander Josh Smoker (1-0) struck out two in a perfect inning against the meat of Miamis struggling lineup for his first major league win.Cespedes, who sat out Sundays loss to Philadelphia after his nagging quadriceps flared up, launched a no-doubt drive to left-center on a 1-1 pitch from Nick Wittgren (4-3).They say one bad pitch can change anything, and it happened, Wittgren said. Puma Shoes Uk Online. I completely messed up on that pitch and put it right down the middle for him.Miami broke a scoreless tie in the eighth when Ichiro Suzuki and Xavier Scruggs hit consecutive two-out doubles off Addison Reed.Reyes opened the bottom half with a double that scooted by a sliding Suzuki in right field as he tried to cut the ball off. Reyes went to third on a long flyout, then raced to the plate after A.J. Ramos wild pitch.With the count 0-2 on Cespedes, Ramos threw a high fastball that glanced off the mitt of catcher J.T. Realmuto and went to the screen. The speedy Reyes scored with a headfirst dive as Ramos crashed into him while going down to his knees and reaching for Realmutos throw.Reyes rolled around in discomfort for several seconds but stayed in the game.KIDS IN THE HALLThe 42-year-old Suzuki had two hits, increasing his career total to 3,011 and passing Hall of Famer Wade Boggs for 27th place in major league history.TRAINERS ROOMMarlins: RHP Andrew Cashner (finger blister) is scheduled to start Friday at Cleveland after he was scratched Sunday. If he cant go, Cashner would likely be put on the disabled list and replaced again by LHP Justin Nicolino, Mattingly said. ... 2B Derek Dietrich (bruised right knee), on a rehab assignment at Double-A Jacksonville, is expected to come off the DL in Cleveland on Saturday, the first day hes eligible. ... Miami still hopes Stanton (strained left groin) can return in some capacity during the final week of the regular season, Mattingly said.Mets: 2B Neil Walker missed his second consecutive game with a stiff back.

However, I fully realize that wins and losses fall on my shoulder, Fisher said after the Rams lost for the seventh time in eight games.

The deal for Fisher was first reported by the NFL Network, which said it was a two-year extension through 2018.Both Fisher and Snead were in the final month of their deals.Fisher, who fell to 31-44-1 on Sunday, said he wasnt sure why the deal leaked out on Sunday.

Fisher has also complained that the teams travel schedule -- an NFL-high in miles traveled, including a trip to London -- has been a burden.I was very appreciative, with respect to Stan, knowing what we were going through, Fisher said. We had a lot going on this offseason.Fisher also shepherded the Oilers from Houston to Nashville in 1997, his fourth season there; by 1999, the Titans were AFC champions -- losing in the Super Bowl, coincidentally, to the Rams.

Saban says Jackson shouldnt have any problems in the future and had overcome a similar but unrelated injury early in his career with No. 1 Alabama.The senior was injured on a punt return early in the fourth quarter against Texas A&M last Saturday. Jackson had 24 tackles and returned two punts and an interception for a touchdown this season.The Tide is off this week, and looking for the right combination to replace him. Cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick worked some at safety in Tuesdays practice.The Southeastern Conferences last unbeaten team, Alabama plays at No. 19 LSU next weekend. DALLAS -- The Indianapolis Colts played mostly without Andrew Luck when they missed the playoffs in 2015 after winning their division a year earlier.The star quarterback returns, and so do postseason expectations for a team that has made the playoffs 14 of the past 17 seasons.And maybe this is the year for the Oakland Raiders, who havent had a winning season or made the playoffs since losing the Super Bowl after the 2002 season.Luck missed nine games with an assortment of injuries and struggled with turnovers when he was playing. Protecting the fifth-year star is also a priority, with heavy investment in the offensive line and Lucks offseason effort to refine his sliding technique to avoid big hits.The Raiders have bigger hopes after a six-win improvement under coach Jack Del Rio to 7-9, with a promising young quarterback in Derek Carr and a potential superstar receiver in Amari Cooper. The defense has a proven pass rusher in All-Pro Khalil Mack, who had 15 sacks.Besides the Colts, Dallas, Detroit and Baltimore were the other 2014 playoff qualifiers to miss a year later. The Cowboys are without Tony Romo again after he broke a bone in his back in a preseason game, the Lions are trying to move on after receiver Calvin Johnsons retirement, and the Ravens are stuck in a tough division.With all that in mind, heres a glance at four potential playoff qualifiers that didnt make it a year ago, and four prospects for missing out a year after getting in:COULD GET BACK INColts: Coach Chuck Pagano overhauled his staff after going 8-8 following 11-5 records in his first three seasons. First-round pick Ryan Kelly is a walk-in starter at center, and former Miami coach Joe Philbin is in charge of the blockers. Frank Gore believes he can end Indys eight-year stretch without a 1,000-yard rusher. Linebacker Robert Mathis should be motivated to help improve a struggling run defense in the final year of the 35-year-olds contract.Giants: New York spent big to re-sign Jason Pierre-Paul and lure fellow pass rusher Olivier Vernon and other free agents after missing the playoffs four straight years since winning the 2011 championship. Ben McAdoo replaced longtime coach Tom Coughlin. Eli Manning and top receiver Odell Beckham Jr. always give the Giants a chance to have an elite offense in the potentially weak NFC East.Raiders: Carr took a step forward in his second season, throwing for 32 touchdowns and 3,987 yards. Cooper has a proven partner in Michael Crabtree. Latavius Murray was a 1,000-yard back. Oakland lost a lot of leadership with the retirements of safety Charles Woodson and defensive end Justin Tuck. Butt the Raiders hope to fill the void with four free agents: guard Kelechi Osemele, cornerback Sean Smith, linebacker Bruce Irvin, and safety Reggie Nelson.ddddddddddddJets: Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick missed the offseason in a contract dispute but has been around long enough that it shouldnt matter much. Versatile running back Matt Forte is joining an offense with receivers Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, who combined for more than 2,500 yards and 26 touchdowns. The question is whether they can survive a schedule that includes six road games in the first nine weeks, and five of those opponents made the playoffs last year.MIGHT NOT BE BACKRedskins: Kirk Cousins had never won more than one game or started more than six before leading Washington to nine wins and the playoffs last season. He will have to match his NFL-best 70 percent completion rate if the Redskins cant improve on a 28th-ranked defense. Cornerback Josh Norman and safety David Bruton Jr. were brought in as free agents to try to boost that unit.Texans: Houston made the playoffs in the weak AFC South, then proved it didnt belong with a 30-0 loss to Kansas City. The Texans are banking on Brock Osweiler proving he can be the playoff winner after he didnt get a chance to show that behind Peyton Manning in Denver. Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt is coming off back surgery that kept him out for the start of training camp.Broncos: No Manning after he retired. No Osweiler after he spurned the Super Bowl champs to sign with Houston. And now free agent pickup Mark Sanchez was beaten out by 2015 seventh-round pick Trevor Siemian of Northwestern. Rookie first-rounder Paxton Lynch will have to wait for his chance. The uncertainty at quarterback makes Denver vulnerable, but one of the best defenses in the league is spearheaded by superstar linebacker Von Miller.Steelers: Is it crazy to bet against Ben Roethlisberger, especially after he threw for 148 yards and two touchdowns in what are likely his only two series of the preseason? Perhaps. So how about this? The Steelers have never made the playoffs three straight seasons under the 13th-year quarterback, and they are coming off their fourth set of back-to-back appearances with him. Plus, running back LeVeon Bell will be suspended the first three games and hasnt been able to stay healthy the past two years.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow AP Sports Writer Schuyler Dixon on Twitter: http://twitter.com/apschuyler ' ' 'team this year.
