The Group One Doomben 10,000 appears likely to remain at Doomben but at an earlier date. Evgeni Malkin Jersey .There has been much discussion in Queensland after it was suggested the 10,000 be moved from Doomben to Eagle Farm on May 27.The move was one of two proposals regarding the 10,000 put to the Queensland Thoroughbred Advisory Panel at a meeting in Brisbane on Wednesday night.The panel was set up by the state government as a sounding board for Racing Queensland on major issues.It is made up of representatives from breeders, trainers, race clubs, jockeys and betting agencies.The proposals were aimed at having three race meetings at Eagle Farm during the winter and two at Doomben.Currently there are three at Doomben and two at Eagle Farm.Racing Queensland chief executive Elliott Forbes confirmed two proposals were among the 16 matters discussed.He said RQ had taken what was said on board.It is understood the second proposal would mean the Doomben 10,000 would stay at Doomben but be run earlier on May 13 and shortened to 1200m, the original distance of the race.A rich stakes sprint race - either new or the current BRC Sprint - would then be run at Eagle Farm on May 27 as the first of three days at Eagle Farm.

The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos. LONDON -- In the end, Andy Murrays victory over Milos Raonic in the Wimbledon mens final was a one-sided affair as the British No. 1 lifted his second title at SW19 in straight sets.However, after many had predicted a closer encounter on Centre Court, we round up the thoughts of those in the know to find out how Murray nullified the Raonic threat.Richard Krajicek1996 Wimbledon champion and now Stan Wawrinkas coaching consultant:The thing that impressed me most about Andys performance was his focus. He didnt lose his concentration. He was so committed. It was that focus and determination that allowed him to return so well.Maybe some will say that Raonic didnt serve that well. I dont think he served that badly, it was just that the ball keep coming back the whole time. So Raonic started to go for more and he started to make some mistakes.I was so impressed with Andys attitude -- he showed such desire and will to win. The emotions were very different from three years ago. In 2013, Andy was going for his first Wimbledon title and he was also playing against Novak Djokovic and you really thought he could lose that one. Until the end, you werent sure that he would close it out, and there was always a chance that something could go wrong.Today it was different. The whole time you had the feeling that he was going to do it. He had done before and Raonic didnt have the previous experience.Boris Becker1985, 1986, and 1989 Wimbledon champion, and Novak Djokovics coach:Andy was solid. You could see during the match that he had more experience. Milos was knocking on the door but not loud enough. Andys 29, at the peak of his career, so Im sure hes going to be up for aa few more Grand Slams. Mark Recchi Jersey. Grass is his most natural surface, and hes always going to be a big threat at Wimbledon. Hard court is a great surface for him, too. Hell be winning a couple more.Stefan Edberg1988 and 1990 Wimbledon champion, and Roger Federers former coach:Andy Murray was in control from the very beginning. In finals, the first set is always crucial. Once he was ahead he never looked back. Milos never really had a chance until into the third set. At 29, Im sure Murray is going to win more slams, there is no question. There are a lot of good guys around but hes going to have a few good years ahead of him.Lleyton Hewitt2002 Wimbledon champion:Andy was like a brick wall. He played a fabulous match. In tiebreakers, against a big server, those could be nervy times, but Andy dominated. He couldnt have played any better.The former British No. 1s viewTim Henman, four-time Wimbledon semifinalist:I dont think he could have played any better. He delivered with every aspect of his game.And some words from the familyShirley Erskine, Murrays grandmother:It was fantastic. I wasnt here three years ago when Andy won and I didnt want to miss this final as well. It wasnt as emotional as three years ago, but Im thrilled.Judy Murray, his mother and first coach:He was so solid off the ground, he was really strong on serve and I just felt confident that he was going to get the job done. Its great. I could tell he was very emotional at the end and the way he was holding the trophy, it was like, youre not taking that away from me.

Leading up to the NHL Trade Deadline in early April, Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis said he was in the market for a veteran goaltender to help out his young tandem of James Reimer and Ben Scrivens. Wholesale Predators Jerseys . Some of the names that were mentioned in speculation were Roberto Luongo and Miikka Kiprusoff. "Both our (current) goalies are aware of it, its not that we dont think that we have NHL-calibre goaltenders, or goalies with the ability to become very good starting goaltenders," Nonis said on TSN Drive with Dave Naylor on TSN Radio 1050 Toronto in February. "But if we could add someone to help them along, a veteran that would help them grow, then we would do it." But nothing could be worked out so Reimer was the man for the playoff stretch drive. Reimer finished the regular season with a record of 19-8-5 and helped the Leafs make the playoffs for the first time in nine years. Then, he came within a whisker of backstopping the Leafs to a Game 7 win over the Boston Bruins in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series. He had a 2.88 goals-against-average and a save percentage of .923 in the series. So some would assume that Reimer had won enough trust of the Leafs organization to be named the starter next season. That is, until the team gave up Scrivens, forward Matt Frattin and a second round pick to acquire Jonathan Bernier from the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday. The battle lines have now been drawn for the starting position. Or have they in your eyes? Is Jonathan Bernier an upgrade in net for the Leafs? The careers of the two goalies have a lot in common. Both were standouts in junior, both were drafted in 2006, both spent some time in the minors and now both are fighting for the starting job in Toronto. Reimer was drafted from the Red Deer Rebels in the fourth round, 99th overall and came up from the Toronto Marlies in 2010-11 after Jonas Gustavsson and Jean-Sebastien Giguere faltered. He jumped on the opportunity, going 20-10-5 with a 2.60 GAA and .921 save percentage. Last season, he missed 24 games due to injury and never really got on track. This season, he showed he can be a No. 1 goalie, albeit in a lockout-shortened 48-game season. Bernier comes to Toronto with a great deal of promise. Drafted 11th overall by the Kings, the Lewiston MAINEiacs product was expected to be the starter for many years to come. In 2009-10, he posted eye-popping numbers with the AHLs Manchester Monarchs, including a 2.03 GAA and a save percentage of 0.936. It would be his last season in the minors. Unfortunately for Bernier, Jonathan Quick was just emerging as an NHL standout at the same time, leaving the junior phenom on the bench in a backup role. While his talents are unquestioned, his experience remains lacking. The 24-year-old Bernier has played in 62 games as a backup over parts of four seasons while the 25-year-old Reimer has played in 104 games and one playoff series over his three years in the league, mostly as the starter. During his conference call on Sunday, Nonis made it clear that the starters role is up for grabs. "Nothing is being guaranteed to anybody," said Nonis. "If Jonathan Bernier becomes a No. 1 goaltender because he plays better and stronger and Randy [Carlyle] feels more comfortable, then thats what happens. If James wont give up that net and hes the guy whos our starter, then thats fantastic, too." Guests on The Mike Richards In The Morning Show on TSN Radio 1050 Toronto offered up their thoughts on Bernier. "Just go let him battle it out with James Reimer, make it a fair fight, see whos the starter but Ive got to think that Bernier is going to beat out Reimer," said Pierre McGuire of NBC Sports Network. "I think the Leafs paid a very fair, if under-priced value for what potentially could be a star goalie," said Steve Simmons of Sun Media. Theyve had their say, so now we want yours. Is Reimer still the Leafs starting goaltender? Or is Bernier the upgrade in net the Leafs have been looking for? Its Your! Call. Mattias Ekholm Jersey . But what about the officials?

The 26-year-old Ireland striker, who has four goals this season, has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with his new club. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Kevin Durant looks ready to lead a new group of Americans to the gold-medal podium.Durant picked up right where he left off in the 2012 Olympics with 25 points, and the U.S. mens basketball team routed China 119-62 on Saturday night in its opening game.The new Golden State Warriors star scored 30 points four years ago in the gold-medal game, when the Americans held off Spain for the championship. Only he and Carmelo Anthony returned from that team, but the new guys were plenty ready for their Olympic moment.We just wanted to send a statement to the rest of the world, Anthony said. Come out this first game and let everybody know that were focused, were locked in and were about business on this trip.DeMarcus Cousins added 17 points and Paul George 15 for the U.S., which is a heavy favorite to win a third straight gold and wont change any opinions after this performance.LeBron James and Chris Paul passed on searching for more gold with Durant and Anthony, and plenty more top players who would have been on this roster also declined. But coach Mike Krzyzewski said this squad has already bonded as much as any of the three U.S. teams he has led in the Olympics.Just because they arent here today, weve got another batch of guys thats walking around on the streets saying they want to win a gold medal and we all have something in common, Durant said. Its cool to have a fraternity of guys who have won a gold medal. Its rare.Durant was 10 of 14 from the field and made five 3-pointers.When you get hot, you want to see your bench get excited for you, Durant said. Thats better than making the shot, to be honest with you. When I saw my teammates get excited for me, that kept me going.Tougher competition might come later, but it should be an easy start for the Americans. They play again Monday against Venezuela, another team they beat easily in exhibition play.Anthony finished withh nine points and made by history becoming the first U. Ryan Ellis Jersey. S. male to play basketball in four Olympics. He will become the first three-time gold medalist on the mens side if the U.S. wins.The 32-year-old veteran tied LeBron James and David Robinson by playing in his 24th game in the Olympics.The Americans beat the Chinese twice in exhibition play by scores of 106-57 and 107-57, and this one was even less competitive.Former NBA lottery pick Yi Jianlian had 25 points to open his fourth Olympics. No other players were in double figures for the Asian champions.As a matter of fact the result of this game was already kind of expected before the game even started, China coach Luming Gong said through an interpreter.Durant, Anthony, Cousins, Kyrie Irving and Klay Thompson started the game for the Americans, and all 12 players scored. They had 31 assists on their 38 baskets.The Chinese got on the board first with a pair of free throws, and it was tied at 4 after a basket by Yi. Then it was nine straight points for the Americans, who closed the first quarter with a 26-6 burst to lead 30-10.DeAndre Jordan shook the backboards inside Carioca Arena 1 with some of his powerful dunks, DeMar DeRozan had a couple, and in case the dunks were too easy, Irving knocked in four 3-pointers in the second half for his 12 points.There were flags waving and fans singing, the festive scene in the stands more interesting to watch than the game that wasnt competitive after the first few minutes.The U.S. was favored by about 50 points, so it wasnt supposed to be close.If the Americans keep playing like this, the Olympic competition may not, either.---AP Sports Writer Tom Withers contributed to this report.---Follow Brian Mahoney on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/Briancmahoney China Jerseys WholesaleWholesale NFL White JerseysJerseys NFL ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticCheap NFL Jerseys CamoCheap Nike NFL JerseysStitched Jerseys ' ' '

ANDERSON, Ind. Cheap Omari Spellman Jersey . -- Ahmad Bradshaw is finally eligible to practice. He still may not play for a while. On Tuesday, coach Chuck Pagano said Indianapolis had activated the former Giants running back and linebacker Pat Angerer from the physically unable to perform list. The Colts wasted no time in putting Angerer on the field, sending him in halfway through the morning walkthrough. The timing of Bradshaws actual return isnt as clear. "He feels great, and if it was left up to him, he would go today," Pagano said. "But were going to protect him from himself. Hes going to be day-to-day." The Colts had about a dozen players sit out of Tuesdays practice in pads, including the latest addition -- Coby Fleener, who has a concussion. Bradshaw has not practiced since opening training camp on the PUP list, barring him from practice. After he participated in a walkthrough last week, the Colts and league officials began talking about whether Bradshaw, who is recovering from off-season surgery on his right foot, should be activated. "We had discussions with the league concerning Ahmads status and decided it was time to bring him off the list," Pagano said. Bradshaw is now eligible to play in Sunday nights preseason game against his former team, but that isnt going to happen. The former New York star told reporters he did not expect to play. Bradshaw was cut by the Giants on Feb. 6 and didnt sign with Indy until June 11. In six seasons in New York, Bradshaw had 921 carries for 4,232 yards, 32 TDs and three 1,000-yard seasons. He also won two Super Bowl rings and will be best remembered for scoring the go-ahead touchdown against New England in the 2012 Super Bowl, which was played in Indianapolis. Its the only time a Super Bowl was won with a rushing touchdown in the final minute. He left New York ranked sixth all-time in yards rushing, seventh all-time in carries and ninth all-time in TD runs. When fully healthy, Bradshaw is expected to compete with Vick Ballard and Donald Brown for the Colts starting job. "Were going to take it slow. I feel great right now, but its a process," Bradshaw said. "The most exciting part is that I see a lot of potential for this offence." Angerer also has been recovering from off-season surgery on his right foot. Indy took Angerer in the second round of the 2010 draft, and he wound up starting 11 games and making 50 tackles as a rookie. In 2011, Angerer led the Colts and finished fourth in the NFL in tackles (146). Last season, though, Angerer was slowed by a foot injury and finished with 57 tackles, started only three times and missed five games. The absence of Fleener leaves Indy thin at tight end. Dwayne Allen, who was expected to work with Fleener in double tight-end formations, is already out with an injured right foot. Allen was on crutches for practice. The only other tight ends on the roster are Dominique Jones, who caught one pass last season, and Justice Cunningham, the last overall pick in this years draft. Pagano said Fleener was going through the concussion protocol but it means he will probably be out at least a couple of days. Indy also signed cornerback Johnny Adams and linebacker Monte Simmons, and waived injured linebackers Justin Hickman (foot) and Quinton Spears (hamstring). If Hickman and Spears clear waivers, they will go on injured reserve. Cheap NBA Jerseys .

After the whistle, Thornton skated the length of the ice, pulled Orpik to the ice from behind and punched him in the face several times. The England coach Trevor Bayliss admitted his team had been totally outplayed by India on the fourth day in Chennai as they conceded the largest total in their history.And Bayliss, who leaves the tour on Monday night to return to Australia for a hernia operation, conceded such a chastening day might influence Alastair Cook as he reflects on whether he wants to continue as England captain.Criticising Englands bowling and catching, Bayliss, who has supervised the fielding training for the last 18 months in the absence of a specialist fielding coach, also suggested there was a lack of captaincy experience in the squad should Cook decide to step down but agreed that Joe Root was the leading candidate.We got totally outplayed today, for sure, Bayliss said. We just werent in the game today.Youve got to give credit to the Indian batters, who played extremely well. But at times we struggled to bowl to the fields that the captain had set. That just makes it very difficult.Our catching is still below par - I think the last three catches weve dropped have only cost us 500 - and thats disappointing and something weve got to keep working on. Theres no short cut to that - weve just got to do a lot of it. Were a team that probably havent got a lot of natural athletes. Weve got some very good cricketers but we havent got a lot of slippers. Weve just got to get better. Its as simple as that.Asked whether such a tough day could have a bearing on Cooks decision, Bayliss said possibly but stated that he would not attempt to persuade him eitheer way. Cheap Hawks Jerseys China. Thats a decision only he will know the answer to, he said. Hes done it for so long, whether I say yes or no, it wont change his mind whether he keeps going or stops. Im not big on the technology, but Im sure well speak on the phone at some stage over Christmas.If he keeps going, fantastic; if he stops, thats up to him, and Ive got no problems with that either. I wont actually sit down to have a chat with him. Weve got six or seven months till our next Test match, so theres plenty of time for him to have a think about it.I dont think theres too many of our players whove actually captained too many teams, or any of their county teams.Joe Root has done a few games on tour, when Cookies had a bit of time off or when hes off the ground. Joe is obviously our number one bat, and is highly-respected by the players. Hes one of those guys who leads by example, and I cant see that being any different when and if he takes over … if he takes over, I suppose, because we havent actually made that decision either.That will come next if Cookie does step down. But he seems like hes the leading candidate at this stage.If it seems odd that Bayliss is leaving the tour slightly early - it was unclear why he could not wait the extra day - it is in part because he wishes to return for the limited-overs leg having made a full recovery. He is scheduled to miss the Caribbean tour in February and March.

Formula One is still in preliminary discussions over whether to implement a new penalty system that would in essence punish drivers for each infringement until they total too many points and get hit with a race ban. Dougie Hamilton Jersey . Motor sports governing body, FIA, has not presented an official format describing how the system would work. Drivers, however, already have some opinions on the issue. "I dont like it. I dont know, maybe Im a little bit too old fashioned," three-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel said during the Spanish Grand Prix recently. "I think from a drivers point of view, weve been pushing for penalties and right now we are probably in a situation where we have more penalties than we would like, so its a little bit of a vicious circle." Last season, French driver Romain Grosjean was given a one-race ban for causing a crash at the Spa GP that sent Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Sergio Perez off the track at the first corner. The Lotus driver was involved in several crashes by driving too aggressively into the first corner, earning him a reputation as a reckless driver. Grosjean, who has contained his aggression this season, is wary about the plan coming into fruition. "For the time being its only been a supposition. Well have to see how its put into place and what the possibilities are," Grosjean said. "You cant lose points for driving too fast in the pit lane or things like that. So the catalogue (of rules), if it were to happen, would need to be properly established." Drivers remain somewhat in the dark about the proposals. A race ban could happen, for example, if a driver accumulated 12 penalty points. "Until they come up with a proper system and we understand how its going to work, its hard to really know if its going to be a good or bad thing," Toro Rosso driver Daniel Ricciardo said. "In some respects it would be nice to know what a penalty is. Instead of: Will I get a drive-through? Will I get a 10-place grid penalty for doing something wrong?" There were other incidents of dangerous driving last season with Hamilton and Felipe Massa right on the limit when they drove against each other. But defining what is punishable confuses drivers. "I think you have the potential of (penalty) points for some things that are not entirely in our hands and at the end of the day the consequence could be very big," Vettel said. "I dont know if thats the idea. If you want to adapt a system that everybody uses on the road, there might be some logic behind it, but at the end of the day we are not driving on the road, we are racing." At this seasons Bahrain Grand Prix, McLaren driver Sergio Perez twice bumped into teammate Jenson Button as they scrapped for points. In theory, Perez would have received a penalty point under the proposed new rules. Three-time former champion Niki Lauda agrees with Vettel and is aghast at the idea of the system. "There has to be some kind of penalties for mistakes but I think its completely wrong for Formula One (to) use the same kind of penalties we have on the road, which I think is ridiculous," Lauda told The Associated Press at the Spanish GP. Penalizing drivers too much will lessen the thrill of the sport which is naturally shrouded in danger. "Its sort of like giving the guys -- whoevers controlling it -- an excuse to hand out more penalties," Ricciardo said. "I think weve got to be careful not to .. you know, we still want to see racing. We still want to see cars get close and race hard. We dont want to see old ladies driving, we still want to see young, aggressive kids." Ricciardo said he fears the system could lead to excessive scrutiny. "Sometimes you have to say: Its a pure racing incident and not investigate all the time," Ricciardo said. "Its going to be very complex because then youve got things like an unsafe pit release (which has) got nothing to do with the driver." Dishing out penalty points could decide races and even championships, opening the door to endless sanctions and appeals. "I dont know whose idea it was. Its ridiculous, I think," Lauda said. "Racing is racing." Troy Brouwer Jersey . Laudrup revealed Thursday he was notified of his dismissal in "the briefest of letters which gave no reasons why such hasty and final action was deemed necessary. Miikka Kiprusoff Jersey . Nine days before the opening ceremony, organizing committee chief Dmitry Chernyshenko said Wednesday that Sochi is "fully ready" and will deliver safe, friendly and well-run games that defy the grim reports that have overshadowed preparations. http://www.cheapflamesjerseyschina.com/ . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book.FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Matt Ryan said Tuesday his focus is on his new teammates and a new season and hes not fretting about the status of his new contract. Cornerback Desmond Trufant, the Falcons first-round pick, made his off-season training activities debut Tuesday after completing his classes at the University of Washington. Ryan said Trufant made a good first impression. Ryan said another newcomer, three-time Pro Bowl running back Steven Jackson, has shown he is a leader in his first off-season with the Falcons. Predictably, Ryan said little about his contract status. General manager Thomas Dimitroff said recently he hopes to have a new deal with Ryan before the season. The quarterbacks six-year, $66 million contract expires after the 2013 season. Ryan said hes confident Dimitroff and his agent, Tom Condon, will reach an agreement. "You know what, I leave that to my agents and the front office," Ryan said. "Those guys will get that stuff done." Condon could not be reached for comment. Ryan is expected join the list of quarterbacks signing milestone long-term deals. Drew Brees, Tony Romo and Joe Flacco have recently signed five- or six-year deals worth at least $100 million. Ryan set career highs with 32 touchdown passes and 4,719 yards passing as he led the Falcons to a 13-3 record in 2012. Atlanta beat Seattle for Ryans first post-season win. The Falcons lost to San Francisco in the NFC championship game. The Falcons hopes of making another run at a Super Bowl berth were boosted by the teams addition of Jackson and the decision by tight end Tony Gonzalez to postpone his retirement plans another year. Jackson leads all active players with 10,135 yards rushing. "Steven Jackson has come in and hes a leader," Ryan said. "Hes fun to play with and fun to work with and hes a guy who really cares. I think thats been good, too. "I think for him its taken a little time to get adjusted, but when he knows what to do hes a really, really good player and hes really smart, too. Hes picked up a lot of stuff really quick. Hes dedicated. Hes one of the few guys who has called me when hes not here and picked my brain about certain stuff that were doing and I think that says a lot about him." Trufants arrival was delayed untill he completed his academic work at Washington. Jarome Iginla Jersey. Coach Mike Smith said another draft pick, tight end Levine Toilolo, is expected to complete his spring semester at Stanford on Tuesday and join the Falcons OTAs on Wednesday. Trufant could start as a rookie. "Hes an athletic kid, thats for sure," Ryan said. "He moves pretty well. That was the thing I noticed most of all during one-on-ones." Smith said he has given Trufant and other rookies an overload of information. "Im sure his head is spinning," Smith said. "We want to try to bombard their brains through the off-season. ... Thats always how weve done it. Lets see how they handle all of it at first and not bring them along slowly." Jackson and Trufant are important additions, but Ryan remains the face of the franchise. After five seasons he trails only Steve Bartkowski on the Falcons career lists for yards passing and touchdowns. Bartkowski threw 154 touchdown passes from 1975 to 1985. Ryan, who has 127, could pass the mark in 2013. "Certainly its great to be in the company with Bart," Ryan said. "He obviously was an awesome player in his time, probably the premier quarterback to ever play here in Atlanta. But hes also a great guy and Ive gotten to know him well and hes been very helpful to me in my career thus far. "Its great to be mentioned in that breath but at the same time its not something that you worry about or think about. For me, Im constantly focused on trying to do my job the best I can and if youre constantly worried about statistics and records and all of that it takes away from being able to do the job the best you can." NOTES: Vanderbilt coach James Franklin and his defensive assistants visited Tuesdays practice. Franklin said college and NFL schemes are not as different as in past eras so he can learn from watching the Falcons work under defensive co-ordinator Mike Nolan. ... Among veteran players not attending were Gonzalez, receiver Roddy White and cornerback Asante Samuel. ... The Falcons have mandatory minicamp on June 18-20. Smith said he expects linebackers Sean Weatherspoon and Stephen Nicholas, who have worked on the side with a trainer during OTAs while recovering from injuries, to be cleared for the minicamp.

The Orlando Magic will be looking to break their slump when they visit the well-rested Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night. Barry Ashbee Jersey .The Magic fell to 7-12 with their fifth loss in six games Thursday night, a 95-94 defeat to the Memphis Grizzlies in which Orlando frittered away a 13-point lead in the final 6:12.Memphis center Marc Gasol drained the go-ahead free throws with 12.2 seconds left, and Elfrid Payton turned the ball over on Orlandos final possession. In all, the Grizzlies outscored the Magic 24-10 down the stretch to erase an 84-71 deficit.Everything about this loss is disappointing, coach Frank Vogel told the Orlando Sentinel.The Magic dropped four straight, three of those at home to sub-.500 teams, before winning Tuesday night in San Antonio. They were, however, unable to capitalize on that momentum against a Memphis team that just lost its best player, guard Mike Conley, to a back injury.It hurts, man, Magic guard/forward Evan Fournier told the Sentinel. Hurts bad. They just played more aggressive than us the last five minutes. Thats how they got back into the game.The Sixers (4-14) have been off since losing Monday in Toronto. Wednesdays scheduled home game against Sacramento was postponed because of moisture on the Wells Fargo Center floor.Before the postponement, the Sixers (4-14) announced that rookie center Joel Embiids minutes restriction was being increased from 24 to 28 per game. Embiid, the third overall pick in the 2014 draft, missed two seasons while recovering from a pair of foot surgeries. He will still not play both games in a back-to-back set, however.It was announced Thursday that he will be available Friday against the Magic, meaning he will not see the court when the Boston Celtics visit on Saturday.Embiid, named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month on Thursday, leads the Sixers (and all NBA rookies) in scoring (18.2), rebounding (7.8), blocked shots (2.4) and 3-point percentage (.500).He said the minutes bump came after a CT scan Monday showed his right foot is holding up well to the rigors of NBA play.Im happy that those (medical) guys trust me and Im able to play more minutes, he said, and Im going to make the most out of it.Philadelphia coach Brett Brown pronounced himself giddy with the change in Embiids availability. The team previously said it would not reevaluate Embiids minutes restriction until Christmas.There is constant evaluation of him, Brown said. The most recent one of him (Tuesday) showed that everything is good.Nerlens Noel, who has yet to play this season following minor knee surgery in October, practiced on Wednesday with the Delaware 87ers, Philadelphias NBA Development League team, then went through drills with the Sixers on Thursday.He told Calkins Media he is close to returning to action, but Brown told the same outlet Noel is a ways away from a return.Veteran guard Jerryd Bayless has also missed the last two games with a sore left wrist.

"It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. HOUSTON -- Houston manager A.J. Hinch politely answered question after question Monday about what went wrong this season before he was finally asked how he was dealing with his team missing the postseason a year after reaching the playoffs for the first time since 2005.Im not handling it very well at all, the Astros second-year manager said. I hate losing ... I dont like being here and having this meeting when I know a game is being played tomorrow. But Im proud of the fact that 84 wins isnt good enough.The Astros took a step back this season after a surprising trip to the ALDS in 2015, forced to play catch up after going 7-17 in April. They remained in the wild-card hunt until the last weekend of the season, but injuries to key members of the rotation and several role players became too much to overcome.Houston has one of baseballs best middle infields with second baseman Jose Altuve and shortstop Carlos Correa, but its seeking upgrades at first base and in the outfield.I think were well positioned for next year, general manager Jeff Luhnow said. There are very few organizations of the 30 that have quite as exciting a young core to build around. Thats our job this offseason, is to put in some complementary pieces to add to the guys that we have that were excited about.The Astros went 84-78 a year after finishing 86-76, giving them consecutive winning seasons for the first time since 2005-06. Of course, after years or rebuilding, over .500 isnt the target anymore.Our goal next year is to win the division and do some serious damage in the playoffs, Luhnow said. Theres nothing short of that thats going to satisfy us.Some things to know as the Astros wrap the 2016 season.AWESOME ALTUVE: Altuve had another MVP-caliber season in 2016. He won the AL batting title for the second time in three seasons by hitting .338 and got his third straight 200-hit season with an AL-leading 216. He hit 42 doubles and stole 30 bases, and his five triples, 24 homers and 96 RBI were all career highs.The 26-year-old Altuve is the first second baseman to win multiple battiing titles since Rod Carew won five from 1969-75. White Flyers Jerseys. I just wonder how he can get any better, Luhnow said. Hes really done an unbelievable job of setting goals for himself and improving his game in every way that he possibly could. Hes one of the best players in the American League, the best players in the game and were just happy to have him here.KEUCHEL STRUGGLES: Ace Dallas Keuchel had a tough season a year after winning the AL Cy Young Award. The left-hander went 9-12 with a 4.55 ERA after finishing 2015 a career-best 20-8 with a 2.48 ERA. He looked sharper in August but was shut down after a start on Aug. 27 because of shoulder inflammation and didnt pitch again. Luhnow said he isnt worried about Keuchel and expects him to bounce back next season.CORREAS GROWTH: The top overall pick in the 2012 draft had a solid sophomore campaign after winning AL Rookie of the Year in 2015. He hit .274 with 20 homers and 96 RBI despite playing the last weeks of the season with a shoulder injury.Correa turned 22 in September, and the Astros are pleased with his development this season.Correa, though, is disappointed he failed to do more in 2016.Carlos Correa will probably never live up to his own expectations, Hinch said. Im not sure youre ever going to live up to the hype, but when the dust settles and we look back at this season, well look back at it as a growth season for him, as a productive season and a step in the right direction.RASMUS DONE IN HOUSTON? OF Colby Rasmus was Houstons highest-paid player this season, making $15.8 million, but batted just .206 in 107 games while dealing with various injuries. Rasmus is eligible for free agency, and although Luhnow wouldnt say definitively, he suggested Houston was unlikely to retain the 30-year-old.He still has value to major league teams and Im sure hell have an opportunity to sign somewhere, Luhnow said. But Im not sure how, or if, he fits into our plans at this point.

ST. Cheap Charlotte Hornets Jerseys . LOUIS -- Steven Brault has been compared by some to Mark Buehrle, and if he has anywhere near the major league career Buehrle enjoyed, the Pittsburgh Pirates will be better for it.With Tuesday nights probable starter, Jameson Taillon (right shoulder fatigue), hitting the 15-day disabled list after Pittsburghs 4-2 win Monday over the St. Louis Cardinals, Brault is expected to be called up from Triple-A Indianapolis to make his first big league start when the teams continue their four-game series.Described as a pitch to contact guy by one scouting report, Brault is 2/3 with a 3.00 earned run average over nine minor league starts this year, eight at Indianapolis. Although his fastball tops out at 91 mph, Brault has fanned 49 hitters in 39 innings.Brault fits the profile of the kind of pitcher that has given St. Louis fits at times the last three-plus years -- a crafty left-hander who changes speeds and spins, keeping the opposition off-balance.Jonathon Niese certainly did that Monday, limiting the Cardinals (43-39) to seven hits and a run in 5 2/3 innings as he earned the win. It was the third time on St. Louis nine-game homestand that a starting pitcher with an ERA over 5.00 had limited the club to a run or less while on the bump.I dont know what to make of that, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. Any guy in this league has the potential to put something together. I think we treat them all with the same respect.As Taillon, who was 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA in his first five MLB starts, goes on the shelf, the Pirates (42-41) might be on the verge of welcoming their top starting pitcher back to the fold.Right-hander Gerrit Cole (5-4, 2.77), who went on the 15-day DL June 14 with a right triceps strain, is scheduled to make his first rehab start Tuesday night for Indianapolis. Cole is expected to throw three innings or 50 pitches, according to manager Clint Hurdle.Whats more, Pittsburgh right-hander Ryan Vogelsong (facial fractures), who is on the 60-day DL after being beaned May 23, will pitch a simulated game Tuesday. His battery mate will be none other than catcher Francisco Cervelli (broken left hamate bone), whos been on the 15-day DL since June 11.Even with all the injuries, the Pirates have won five straight and are over .500 for the first time since June 15. One major reason has been the bullpen, which worked an MLB-best 34 straight scoreless innings before giving up a run in the ninth inning Monday.The roll theyre on now is kind of crazy, Hurdle said. But these guys have had success before. Theyre in a good place right now. Theyre going to continue to work and feed off one another.Pittsburgh faces a historically tough matchup Tuesday night when St. Louis sends Mike Leake (5-6, 4.13) to the bump. Leake, whos coming off a 4-2 loss Thursday night against Kansas City, is 9-4 with a 3.13 ERA in 26 career starts against the Pirates, winning eight of his last nine decisions against them.
