SEATTLE -- ??? For roughly six hours last April, Mike Neighbors twisted in the realm of the unknown over questions about his star player and her future at Washington.It was the day after Washington lost to Syracuse in the national semifinals, concluding one of the most remarkable NCAA Tournament runs in recent memory. Neighbors was sticking around Indianapolis for a coaches convention while the rest of his team was on a plane back to Seattle.Thats when Neighbors phone rang. It was Renee Brown, then the WNBA chief of basketball operations, telling Neighbors that rumors were quickly spreading that Plum had changed her mind and was going to declare early for the WNBA.It was a story that spun out of control, Neighbors recalled.What followed were hours of unanswered text messages, emails and phone calls from Neighbors to anyone and everyone associated with the Washington program trying to confirm one way or another whether Plum was going to declare.After more than six hours, with the team finally back in Seattle and Plums phone charged enough to make a call, Neighbors heard from his star.I thought Id mess with him a little bit, Plum said. I was like you know what coach, I just want to say I really appreciate everything youve done. Its been a great three years and Im just grateful for the opportunity youve given me and the future. And he was dead silent.And then I was like Come on, Im coming back. I think I got him a little bit.That story is a peek inside the relationship that has helped put No. 17 Washington back on the national landscape of womens college basketball. Plum is the star scorer who will likely rewrite the Pac-12 record books by the conclusion of her senior season. Neighbors is the coach who has found the right mix of sarcasm, support and constructive criticism to allow Plum to thrive.There was never a doubt Plum would return to Washington for her senior season, in her mind. There was too much left to accomplish, even if shes already left a legacy by getting Washington to its first Final Four a season ago as a No. 7 seed and pulling off thrree consecutive upsets before losing to Syracuse in the national semifinals. Maillot Edinson Cavani Psg/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. That wasnt enough. Not having an opportunity to play for a national title left Plum feeling hollow. Its why shes so adamant that last season is just that and should not linger into this year. And thats directed at more than just her teammates. Plum has already told Neighbors she doesnt want to see him wearing his Final Four ring around practice.Who am I to take that away from him? Plum said. But I think someone has to bring him back down to earth. If thats me, Ill be the bad guy.If Plum is going to be the bad guy its only in her rabid determination to make sure Washingtons reemergence as a contender in the Pac-12 lasts for more than the four years she was on campus. Sure, her legacy will remain in statistics, honors and hitting 145 straight free throws in practice last month that required Neighbors to get part of the Washington drumline to distract Plum and finally force her to miss.Plum became the first player in Washington history to be named a preseason AP All-American. She needs just 319 points to tie a Pac-12 record for scoring and is 975 points shy of tying the NCAA scoring record. The first is almost certain to fall and the second record is obtainable if she remains healthy and the Huskies can make another deep postseason run.Thats where the drive comes from for Plum. She cant enjoy -- wont enjoy -- what Washington accomplished last season because it wasnt satisfying. Her Final Four ring is still in its box. And it will likely remain there until the conclusion of her college career.One of the things coach has tried to help me to work on -- and its a continuing struggle -- is to enjoy that, Plum said. I think they scientifically say that if you dont recognize and pat yourself on the back it almost is like a counter effect. ... I do struggle with that. I think you definitely have to look back and enjoy it and have a wow moment. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">' ' '

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Al Attles made all eight of his field-goal tries for 17 points for the Philadelphia Warriors during Wilt Chamberlains 100-point game on March 2, 1962. Attles coached Rick Barry the day he scored 64 against Portland on March 26, 1974.He watched with a smile high above the Oracle Arena floor on Monday night as Klay Thompson scored an NBA season-high and career-best 60 points in three quarters for the Golden State Warriors in a 142-106 win against Indiana -- the highest Warriors scoring performance since Barrys.Not that you will ever find Attles playing favorites when it comes to special games by individual players. Dont even try. He coached the Warriors to their first championship since moving West in 1975, then Golden State won again 40 years later in 2015.Ive seen a 100-point game, Attles said from his seat during a late timeout. Rick was such a great player and he cared about winning. In order to score the number of points he scored you have to have help from your teammates. I try to look at them individually because once you start comparing, someone is always going to be No. 2. Lets give him his credit.Attles joked he passed to Chamberlain for all those points. He actually had six assiists, while Guy Rodgers had 20 of the teams 39 overall in the 169-147 win against the Knicks at Hershey, Pennsylvania. Adidas Zach Parise Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">.

Thats all that matters.While Attles -- who is in his 57th year with the Warriors and recently celebrated his 80th birthday with extra-large cupcakes at Oracle -- was close with Chamberlain, when people ask about the 100-point performance, he still keeps it separate from other sensational showings like the onslaught by Thompson in just 29 minutes and three quarters against the Pacers.Because I played with Wilt, people always ask, `What do you think about Wilt scoring 100 points? I say, `Give him credit for what he did then, said Attles, now a community ambassador for the franchise in regular attendance at games.Its like apples and oranges. Theyre both good fruit. Its a matter of what you like. I was very close to Wilt, but you have to enjoy what they did that night. I enjoy any great performance.

Kerry, Two nights after the Scott-Eriksson incident in Buffalo, the Bruins returned home to play San Jose. In that game, Zdeno Chara put a check on Tommy Wingels that clearly targeted his head. Each week of the NFL season we sift through the deeper options at each position with an eye on identifying streaming fantasy commodities with valuable matchups to consider. If youve made the playoffs but find yourself short a starter, well provide lower-owned options to consider picking up and plugging into your lineup.Running backKenneth Dixon, Baltimore RavensThe takeover of the Ravens running game hasnt exactly materialized for Dixon, as Terrance West continues to consume meaningful and rewarding touches for Baltimore. That said, Dixon has produced at least 72 yards from scrimmage in three of four games and is proving elusive in open space on film. With an uptick in rushing production in five straight weeks and complementary yardage in the passing game, Dixon can prove helpful for those seeking a high-floor flex. As road underdogs in a game with a respectable point total, per the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, the Ravens game script could trend pass-happy, a reality that could bolster this gifted receivers fantasy numbers -- Dixon led all draft-eligible backs in yards per route run last season.In that same game, I can envision some upside for the New England Patriots Dion Lewis, as the Pitt product looks shifty and speedy again on film and is an upside play for those chasing big-play production.Matt Asiata, Minnesota VikingsThe ceiling is clearly compromised, but we are here for his floor, as Asiata has produced at least seven fantasy points in seven of nine games in ESPN standard scoring since the start of Week 4. Its all about meaningful goal-to-go work for Asiata, and with the Vikings favored on the road and listed as the second-highest win probability of all road teams this week, per FiveThirtyEight, its possible we see Asiata earn another seven-point special.Wide receiverBrandon LaFell, Cincinnati BengalsTied with Tyler Boyd since the start of Week 11 with 21.1 percent of the teams targets over this sample, LaFell has the edge over the rookie given his average target has traveled 10.4 yards compared with the rookies rate of 8.4, the highest of the top eight targets on the team over the past three games. The Browns have yielded the fifth-most fantasy points to wideouts, while LaFell delivered a touchdown and solid yardage against Cleveland earlier this season. With Dalton playing well in a clean pocket -- the Cleveland Browns rank 28th in pressuring passers -- LaFell could enjoy a nice downfield showing this Sunday.Malcolm Mitchell, New England PatriotsIts difficult to trust an upstart rookie in the fantasy playoffs, but Mitchells rise appears sustainable. The adaptive New England offense is now peppering its wideouts with targets, as Mitchell is second only to Julian Edelman with 16.9 percent of the teams target market over the past three games. Mitchells rapport with Tom Brady is impressive, as he has hauled in 77.3 percent of his targets and produced 43 percent of the teams receiving scores over the past three games. The Ravens have ceded the ninth-most fantasy points to receivers, supporting a nice outcome spectrum for Mitchell.Tight endLadarius Green, Pittsburgh SteelersThe hype for Green this offseason was tied to the premise the big-play tight end would finally see rewarding exposure in routes and targets and get out of the shadow of Antonio Gates. Lingering and mysterious injury issues kept Green off the field for the first half of the season, but were finally seeing Ben Roethlisberger thrive with his new downfield weapon. Big Ben has completed five passes at least 15 yards past the line of scrimmage to Green in the past two games. Roethlisberger has four such completions to other tight ends over the past two years. Greens 24.6 percent share of the teams targets over the past two games leads the team, as does his rich target-per-route rate of 40 percent, signaling hes a top read for Roethlisberger. The Buffalo Bills, meanwhile, have surrendered nearly 14 yards per catch to tight ends this season, the highest rate in the league. From the waiver to starting lineups, Green could be a key component to championship runs.Cameron Brate, Tampa Bay BuccaneersThis Harvard product has been an inclusion in this column several times this season, but is still available in nearly half of ESPN leagues and has a start rate of 30.7 percent. As a key red zone target on an offense with inviting scoring upside, Brate is a top streaming option at this fickle fantasy position.Jermaine Gresham, Arizona CardinalsWith at least four receptions or a touchdown in four straight, Gresham is fourth on the Cardinals with 13.6 percent of the teams targets over the past four games. A catch rate around 70 percent and a role as a key dump-off valve, Gresham could return value against a Miami Dolphins defense that has surrendered the sixth-most fantasy points to tight ends this season.QuarterbackEmbarking in the fantasy pllayoffs in most leagues, its not exactly an inviting week to stream quarterbacks. Puma Fur Slide Rose/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Although, we can passionately endorse the Buccaneers Jameis Winston given a start rate of 29 percent in ESPN standard leagues, Winston is admittedly already widely owned (rostered in 70 percent of ESPN leagues) and the crowd will surely identify this inviting matchup against the New Orleans Saints.Andy Dalton of the Bengals could be of interest against a Browns defense that has allowed a touchdown on a third of opposing drives since the start of Week 4, the highest rate in the league over this sample. Started in just 7.8 percent of leagues, Dalton enjoyed awesome downfield success against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 13, completing five of his six attempts at least 20 yards downfield with a touchdown, per Pro Football Focus.Some of us play in deeper and multi-quarterback formats, if thats the case, Alex Smith of the Kansas City Chiefs is available in a majority of ESPN leagues. Smiths team is favored in a game with a healthy enough implied point total, per the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. With some simple math, we deduce the Chiefs team total is hovering around 25 points for this pivotal division matchup. This indicates multiple touchdowns from the Chiefs, an inviting sign against an Oakland Raiders defense that has ceded a touchdown on nearly 24 percent of opposing drives since the start of Week 4, the seventh-highest rate in the league and above the league average allowance of 21.5 percent.D/STTennessee TitansDick LeBeaus aggressive defense has the fifth-highest blitz rate in the league and has surrendered the seventh-lowest completion rate to opposing passers this season. The Titans will face either an ailing Trevor Siemian, who just got out of a protective boot for a sprained foot, or green rookie Paxton Lynch, who completed half of his passes for 4.04 yards per dropback this past week. Widely available, streaming this group in a game with a total hovering around 43 points, per the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, could prove rewarding.Pittsburgh SteelersThe Steelers had one of the weakest pass rushes for much of the season, but since the start of Week 8, they claim the third-highest blitz rate, sending added pressure on nearly 40 percent of opposing dropbacks. The Steelers have the ninth-highest pressure rate over the past six weeks and have compiled an impressive 13 sacks over the past three games. The Bills have just three passing touchdowns since the start of Week 7 and rely heavily on their ground game, an element that could shift if the Steelers elite offense can build an early lead. With Tyrod Taylor melting under the persistent pressure the Raiders brought in Week 13, there is a template for the Steelers to thrive this week.Washington RedskinsGoing deep into fantasy free agency, this promotion angle for the Redskins is facing a regressing Carson Wentz on a depleted and inept Philly offense. Since the start of Week 5, when right tackle Lane Johnson first left the team because of suspension, the Eagles have turned over the ball on 16 percent of their drives, most in the NFC and just behind the Chargers for the dubious league lead in this metric. The Eagles are just 24th in points per drive over this span, suggesting Washington could thrive in this meeting with a limping division foe.Individual defensive playersLinebackerNick Kwiatkoski, Chicago BearsA gem in Scrabble leagues, this fourth-round rookie out of West Virginia has played on all but four defensive snaps for the Bears over the past two games and tallied a career-high nine tackles in Week 13. Available in virtually all ESPN leagues, its safe to assume you stream this rising rookie.For another name, the San Diego Chargers Korey Toomer continues to enjoy every-down exposure and has at least nine tackles in four straight.Defensive backMichael Griffin, Carolina PanthersWith Kurt Coleman ailing, Griffin played on all 71 of the teams defensive snaps in Week 13 and tallied 14 tackles in the process. Facing a busy San Diego offense that feeds its ground game with a bevy of touches, Griffin could again tally a nice day in the tackle department.Back from an enduring injury absence, Jahleel Addae has played on all but four of the Chargers defensive snaps over the past two games and has 18 tackles to show for his exposure rate.Defensive lineShea McClellin, New England PatriotsEarning exposure at outside linebacker for the Patriots, McClellin has seen increased snaps over the past two weeks. With 12 tackles over the past two games, this position eligibility loophole could prove rewarding in deeper leagues.Denvers Derek Wolfe has 14 tackles over the past two games and has been a valuable edge setter when healthy this season. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '

/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">Since its brief heyday, when fighters like Christy Martin and Laila Ali captivated national audiences, womens boxing has largely been absent from the spotlight -- few appearances on major cards, and almost nonexistent on television. 

Puma Heart Patent Blanca/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . The few promoters who decide to buy in to the greatly underestimated sport face an uphill climb when selling television networks on showcasing their fights.Yet, on the day when amateur middleweight boxer Claressa Shields made history as the first American boxer (male or female) to win gold medals in back-to-back Olympics, professional fighters Heather Hardy and Shelly Vincent also made history as the first women to be featured on Premier Boxing Champions first nationally televised female undercard.And they did not disappoint.With the exception of their prematch undefeated records, the two fighters could not seem to be more different. Vincent, an openly gay fighter from New London, Connecticut, is an in-your-face brawler who dons short, tricolored hair and has her upper body covered in tattoos. Hardy, a single mother from Gerritsen Beach in Brooklyn, is an agile and relentless volume puncher who sports blond hair and braids. But upon taking a closer look at both fighters stories, the two women share many similarities that their mutual dislike of one another would probably not allow them to accept.On Sunday, both took to the center ring and fought to elevate the sport of womens boxing, doing their best to showcase the sports marketability with an electrifying fight.Shelly and I both worked really hard to get to this spot here on television. Were both fighting to put on a show, Hardy says. Were fighting to make our claim to a spot on TV so people go, I want to see girls again.I dont think this fight is really for me or for Heather, its for womens boxing as a whole, Vincent says. Its finally a step in the right direction towards where it was. We didnt think we were ever going to get on television.On Sundays card, which featured a main event knockout and multiple knockdowns, Hardy and Vincent stole the show in what was a closely contended, back-and-forth dogfight. In the Ford Amphitheater, the two fighters went the distance in a gutsy 10-round match for the WBC international featherweight title against the backdrop of the Coney Island pier.Heather Hardy, with boyfriend and trainer Devon Cormack, takes her bags back to her apartment from the historic Gleasons Boxing Gym in Brooklyns Dumbo neighborhood, where she trains. Hardy is a single mother to a 12-year-old daughter, Annie. Hardy moved from her hometown of Gerritsen Beach, another neighborhood in Brooklyn, after constant commuting kept her from her away from her family.Sara Naomi Lewkowicz for ESPNShelly Vincent, right, rests with her fiancee, fellow boxer Jennifer The Bolivian Queen Salinas, at their hotel in Queens the day of the fight.

She is a winner, regardless of this outcome today.Cassandra Giraldo for ESPNFrom the first time I got in the ring when I was 28, it was like there was nothing else on the planet that I was meant to do. I was meant to fight, I was meant to box, Hardy says. Theres so many times in your life when you fight as hard as you can, but you cant win.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- With Marshall Newhouses status uncertain because of a calf injury, Bobby Hart and Will Beatty will have a competition this week to determine the New York Giants starting right tackle against the Washington Redskins.Newhouse was hurt in the fourth quarter of Sundays 16-13 win over the New Orleans Saints and Hart replaced him.Coach Ben McAdoo said that Newhouse probably wont be able to practice in the early part of the week, and his status for the game is up in the air. Newhouse had a walking boot on Tuesday.A second-year pro, Hart has started one game for the Giants (2-0), playing right tackle against the Jets in December.Beatty is far more experienced, but he also is just getting into game shape. The Giants second-round draft pick in 2009 was released in February after missing the 2015 season with injuries and he was not re-signed until Aug. 30.While he has 63 starts at tackle, he did not see any preseason action and has been inactive in the first two games of the season.Hart would appear to be the likely starter. He played in all the preseason games, was active for the first two games. He also is the so-called sixth man on the line in that he is the main backup at both tackle and guard positions.Still, Hart is looking forward to competing for a starting job. He and Newhouse were in a competition for the job in training camp, but he had to move to left guard when Justin Pugh was limited by a shoulder injury.Now the competition will be against BeattyIts definitely a good challenge, Hart said Tuesday. I look forward to it. In preseason, I was in a battle for it (right tackle), but then I played guard for most of the rest of the preseason. Its just good to get back at tackle and compete.Hart said he was standing on the sideline waatching the Saints defense when Newhouse was hurt. Puma Kylie Jenner Comprar/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. The next thing he heard was line coach Mike Solari say: Bobby go.Hart didnt get a lot of plays, but he felt he did all right.Beatty also intends to be ready if needed against NFC East rival Washington (0-2).I have been ready, he said Tuesday. I have been doing this for a long time, so its making sure that if the coaches call you up and give you the opportunity to get on the field, you give them every reason to keep you on the field. The only way you do that is by preparing and being ready when you are called.Beatty downplayed his lack of any game action since the 2014 season.I have put a lot of snaps behind my belt, said Beatty, who has appeared in 82 regular-season games and was the starting left tackle on the Giants 2011 Super Bowl championship team.Game notes Starting running back Rashad Jennings had a cast that covered his left hand on Tuesday.

/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">At first glance, Dinesh Kumars loss to Virendra Singh of Himachal Pradesh in the semifinals of the heavyweight division at the Boxing National Championships on Monday must seem an upset. 

Adidas Cam Atkinson Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . While Virendra is a relative newcomer, Dinesh has plenty of boxing pedigree. He is an Olympian and an Asian Games silver medalist after all. After the 2-3 split decision loss, Dinesh will have to be satisfied with a bronze medal, which he won by knocking out two opponents in the earlier rounds.But for those in the boxing fraternity, the result for the 27-year old - even if only a minor medal -- is nothing less than astounding. A thick ugly scar running down Dineshs right arm - from his shoulder to his elbow gives a clue to the reason for their surprise. Indeed it wasnt very long ago that it seemed Kumars boxing career was over.In May 2014, soon after winning the trials to select the Indian team for the Commonwealth Games, Dinesh was severely injured in a car accident. We were supposed to travel to Germany for a training camp soon after the trials. I had gone home to my village in Bhiwani because I expected to then travel to Delhi, he recalls. The training stint was cancelled however and Kumar was called back to the national camp in Patiala. Driving back, the vehicle he was driving collided with a truck. The car was a wreck. Dineshs right arm was mangled and his fist shattered. He was hospitalized and doctors screwed in his broken bones with metal plates.Dinesh had had comprehensive wins over his opponents in the Patiala trials and he says he often thinks about what could have been. I wonder how my life would have been different if I had been on that flight to Germany. I was in the best form of my career. I know I would have won a medal in Scotland. But I guess God had other plans for me, he says.This wasnt the first time that Dinesh had suffered an unexpected setback. In 2012, he was the frontrunner for the Indian team ahead of the Olympics. However just before the trials, he was attacked by unknown persons in the national camp. Sumit Sangwan would take his place and earn an Olympic quota. He had once been advised to conduct a religious ceremony for the bad luck he was plagued with. After his accident in 2014 though, he has stopped attending any religious function altogether. Ive given up on all of that. Ive realized, if something is written in your destiny, its going to happen whether you like it or not, he says.Despite the magnitude of the injury, Dinesh says it was his destiny to box again. Man me ek lalach tha. (There was a greed in my mind). There were boxers who said that I would not return. A couple of coaches told me to give up. But there was a fire from inside, that I will come back one day, he says.Dinesh remembers how determined he was right from the moment he woke up from surgery. About 18 days after the accident, I tried to start practicing again. I was desperate to compete in the Commonwealth Games. But, of course, I didnt make the team, he says. But his body started to respond. The doctor was stunned at my progress. He was expecting at least a couple of months for my stitches to come off but my arm began healing a lot faster, he says.?But despite his best hopes, recovery was indeed slow. It took 18 months, Dinesh says. In a bit of twisted logic, Dinesh reckons it helped that there were no tournaments during his layoff. It would have been difficult to watch others compete when I couldnt, he says.In the meantime, he threw himself into his Haryana Police job. Posted in Sirsa district, he began coaching youngsters in the district. I would go running just to maintain my fitness and I would notice these kids running behind me. Sirsa has a drug problem and it doesnt have a boxing culture so when one of my colleagues opened up a boxing academy in her village, I helped out over there, he says. Dinesh adds that training the youngsters helped him as much as them. They look up to me. It is a huge motivation to do well, he says. Dinesh also found inspiration in other sportpersons - Paralympian high jumper Mariyappan Thangavelu. He didnt have a leg and yet he was able to win a high jump gold. Even if my arm was damaged, surely that should not stop me, he says.When the dates for the senior boxing nationals were announced three months ago, Dinesh says he knew he would have to take part. He spoke to his family, who supported his decision to return to the ring. He took the opinion of doctors who said he could fight again. Ive trained for three months straight. Ive not taken any rest days or attended any family functions or visited my friends. I just boxed, he says.While there was sympathy for him, Dinesh didnt get any special favours. He had to take part in the All India Police trials on December 4th in Madhuban, Haryana. It was his first serious competition in over two years. There, he beat the previous years champion to book his spot.While it would be heartening to hear that Dinesh is as good as he was, it is clear that the injury has taken a toll. In contrast to the sharply sculpted left arm, his right is noticeably less muscular. My right arm has about 15 percent less strength than what it used to have, he says. Indeed, in his quarterfinal bout, Dineshs opponent kept trying to left hook over his right arm that would often drop. Unfortunately for his opponent, Dinesh is a southpaw. He would be dropped with a vicious uppercut to the body. Perhaps the only bit of luck I had is that my left is my power hand. That was not damaged. In the past, everyone would be afraid of my uppercut and that is still the case today, he says.While he is glad that he has made a comeback, Dinesh isnt satisfied with winning a bronze. Gold ke saath ana alag baat hoti (Winning the Gold medal is a different feeling), he says. Still he will know that by virtue of his bronze he will be included in the national camp. If I get another two or three months, my body will respond even better than now, he says. Dinesh says his target is clearly defined. I must compete in the 2017 Asian and Commonwealth Games. Jis chez ke karan mera accident hua tha, woh cheez pura kar ke khelunga. Bilkul zid si hai. (I got injured because I was going to train for the Commonwealth Games. Now, I have to complete that task. It is something I insist on doing), says Dinesh.Adidas Anton Forsberg Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. Adidas Alexander Wennberg Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Offerte/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . The long ball is back.There were 5,610 home runs during the regular season, second only behind the Steroids Era high of 5,693 in 2000.And Mark Teixeira thinks he knows why.I think the balls are harder. Definitely. I can just feel it. I can hear it off the bat, the retiring New York Yankees first baseman said.Already in the young playoffs, Torontos Edwin Encarnacion homered to win the AL wild-card game, San Franciscos Conor Gillaspie had a go-ahead, ninth-inning drive in the NL game and the Cubs Javier Baez hit a decisive eighth-inning shot to win an NL Division Series opener.Cubs pitcher Travis Wood became the first reliever to hit a home run in the postseason since 1924. And on Sunday, Dodgers rookie Corey Seager homered in the first inning for the second straight game against Washington.Home runs had dropped from 4,661 in 2013 to 4,186 the following season. The rise began last year, when the total increased to 4,909.And this year nearly set a record.We have tested the baseball. We are absolutely convinced that this issue is not driven by a difference in the baseball, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said. My own view is that the spike is related to the way that the game is being played now, the way that we are training hitters from a very young age, and we have not been able to find any external cause that explains the spike in home runs.A record 111 players hit 20 or more home runs this season, up from 64 last year, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. And forget the days of the weak-hitting, slick-gloved middle infielder. Thirty-five of those players started at least 100 games combined at second base, third or shortstop.Players with 30 or more homers nearly doubled, from 20 to 38.Home runs create a buzz at the ballpark -- especially in the dugouts. Clevelands Roberto Perez, Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor all homered in a single inning of the Indians AL Division Series opener against Boston.After the first one, it was exciting. After mine, it was even kind of getting nuts in there, Kipnis said. And the third one, our dugout was kind of losing it.A day later, the Blue Jays connected three times in an inning at Texas.Increasingly, hitters take nothing-or-all swings. Strikeouts set a record for the ninth straight year at 38,982, an average of 8.02 per team per game. Whiffs are up 27 percent from the 6.30 average in 2007.Offense has been redefined.Sometimes a guy working the count and getting to 3-0 and hitting a home run at Yankee Stadium like (Matt) Wieters is small ball, to work the count like that and get a hittable pitch, said Baltimore manager Buck Showalter, whose Orioles led the major leagues with 253 long balls.Teixeiras evidence goes beyond homers. The average velocity of balls off bats this increased from 88.5 mph in 2015 to 89.1 mph this year, according to Major League Baseballs Statcast.All of a sudden, did we get that much better? That much stronger? he said.Big league baseballs are manufactured by Rawlings in Costa Rica, and balls must weight 5-5 1/4 ounces, have a circumference of 9 to 9 1/4 inches and a diameter of 2 7/8 to 3 inches. The company and MLB insist nothing has changed this year.Were not seeing anything outside our normal tolerance range and specification level, Rawlings spokeswoman Kathy Stephens said, adding the company conducts its own tests.In a statement, MLB said: We direct UMass-Lowells Baseball Research Center to conduct periodic testing of baseballs throughout the regular season.Among the balls that are randomly tested are a sampling from the supplies of clubs. Balls are tested for weight, circumference, coefficient of restitution and other factors. Measurements are made to ensure compliance with our rules and are also compared to previous results. These reviews have found no differences to the ball that would have resulted in a change to its performance, MLB said.Texas manager Jeff Banister had anticipated a decrease in home runs during the postseason because of better pitching. Didnt turn out the way.Youre facing the No. 1s and No. 2s and 3s, he said, and those guys dont generally give up the long ball a lot.Didnt turn out the way. Toronto went deep six times in the first two games of the AL Division Series, hitting four home runs off Yu Darvish.With San Francisco playing postseason games at Chicagos Wrigley Field, former Cub Jeff Samardzija knows the weather in the Windy City can impact how the ball travels.

Still, its a step in the right direction for the former All-Star first baseman.Butler hit a tiebreaking home run off Erasmo Ramirez with one out in the eighth inning and the As held on to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 on Sunday.Ive shown it my career, I can come through in those situations day in and day out, Butler said after helping the As complete a 7-3 homestand. Its one of those things where I really havent had any opportunities to be frustrated. I just havent had my number called a lot. Coming through in those situations, maybe Ill get my number called more.Oakland lost the first game of this series then won the next two on walkoff hits. The As led 2-0 in the finale until Logan Forsythes tying two-run homer in the top of the eighth.Ramirez (7-8) retired Khris Davis on a fly ball before Butler hammered an 0-1 pitch over the wall in center. Its Butlers third home run of the season and first since June 7.Butler also had an RBI single in the first, giving him 18 RBI over his last 35 games.Its tough for a guy that plays every day to try to get himself into a rhythm if hes not, but thats a big hit today, As manager Bob Melvin said. Hes staying positive . but this has been a tough year for him, based on the fact hes asked to do something hes not used to doing.Davis added two hits while Jake Smolinski doubled twice and scored for the As.Ryan Dull (4-2) retired two batters for the win despite giving up Forsythes home run. Ryan Madson pitched the ninth for his 21st save.Home runs have beat us up a lot this year, Rays manager Kevin Cash said. Obviously when you give up that many, theyre coming at the wrong time.Forsythes home run in the eighth ruined an otherwise stellar day for As starter Jesse Hahn.Called up from the minors before the game, Hahn faced just two over the minimum through six innings and allowed only one runner to reach second base before lleaving with a 2-0 lead with two outs in the eighth. Zach Collins Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">.

He struck out four and walked two.THIN BENCHWith only one fully healthy player (Matt McBride) available off the bench Melvin was asked if he had any pitchers hed consider using as positional players if the need arose. Ive got a couple of guys that would like to do it, Melvin said, specifically mentioning Sonny Gray and Kendall Graveman. I hope I dont get to that point. Position players always think they can pitch . and pitchers who are athletic always think they can play positions.TRAINERS ROOMRays: Desmond Jennings (strained left hamstring) ran the bases and took batting practice without a setback during a minor league rehab appearance. ...
