Salazar arent on the ALCS roster, and Bauers problem left Fr from 123's blog

NSW Rugby League boss Dave Trodden has hit out at Laurie Daleys critics, scotching suggestions the Blues coachs job was ever in jeopardy. Vin Baker Jersey .It was speculated that Daley was under pressure after Queensland wrapped up this years series inside two games and having overseen three series losses in four years.However NSWRL chief executive Trodden said that was never the case and that Daley, who is contracted until 2017, was never threatened with the axe.The reality of the situation is that Laurie has always been contracted until the end of next year, Trodden said.Our chairman Dr George Peponis has made comments confirming his support for Laurie and any speculation to the contrary doesnt come from anybody in NSWRL.Its just a bit of speculation.The Blues were criticised for their inability to score points in the opening two games before claiming a four-point win in the finale.They dominated the Maroons in Wednesdays game three dead rubber, controlling 58 per cent of possession and running for nearly 500 metres more than their opposition.They also had 51 tackles in their oppositions 20-metre zone to Queenslands 17 and won the penalty count 12-3, yet only scored three tries.While the Blues and Daley have had their knockers, he said he never felt under threat.No I didnt. Without going into it, I had received a lot of phone calls from people that told me I had their support, Daley said.Im just so happy for the guys, all through the series I think weve competed really well against a really good team.Twelve changes - if you think about it, if Queensland made 12 changes to their team and had to debut eight guys this year, would they be the same team? I dont know. Paul Silas Jersey . The Australian is competing in his final season in Formula One and still looking for his first win this year. He will look to end Vettels run of six straight race wins on Sunday. Webber, who is fifth in the championship, earned his second pole from the past three races and 13th of his career. Derrick McKey Jersey . The quest begins with what is supposed to be an easy one, although Germany has traditionally been a stubborn opponent to Canadian teams at international tournaments. . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. TORONTO -- Trevor Bauer and his injured finger couldnt make it through the first inning Monday night. That means Corey Kluber is expected back on the mound for Cleveland a day earlier than planned.Bauer was removed from Game 3 of the AL Championship Series on Monday night after blood began dripping from his right pinkie. The right-hander had been pushed back two days to Game 3 because he cut the finger on a drone last week. He received stitches, but with two on and two out in the first inning against Toronto, there was already blood on his hand and coming out of his finger.Bauer shook his head in disappointment while being tended to on the mound, and he was replaced by Dan Otero after 21 pitches.Bauers early exit meant Kluber is expected to pitch Game 4 on short rest for Cleveland. Manager Terry Francona had said that was his plan if Bauers finger acted up.Francona said before Mondays game that rookie left-hander Ryan Merritt would start Game 4 if everything went OK with Bauer. Then the Indians would keep the rest of their pitchers on normal rest, with Bauer in line for a potential Game 7.But Francona also left open the possibility that Bauers finger wouldnt hold up.If something happens with Bauer and we have a little bit of a malfunction in his finger ... then we would bring Kluber baack (Tuesday), and then Merritt would pitch the next day, Francona said. Shawn Kemp Jersey. Then that would allow Kluber to pitch a Game 7 if need be.Kluber pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings in Game 1 on Friday.Cleveland entered with a 2-0 series lead, but the Indians have been battling rotation injuries. Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar arent on the ALCS roster, and Bauers problem left Francona in another tough spot.Merritts major league resume consists of 11 innings in the regular season this year. He made one start, holding Kansas City to a run and three hits in five innings Sept. 30.Its awesome that they trust me, the 24-year-old Merritt said. Im just going to go out there and have fun, enjoy it, and try to give my team the best chance to win.Salazar, who is not on the ALCS roster because of forearm issues, threw to hitters on the field at the end of Clevelands workout Sunday.Were not ready to activate him but he is doing much, much better, Francona said. Like we said before, the first goal was to get him completely healthy, and then when that happens well see where and if it leads to him helping us in a game.---Follow Noah Trister at ' ' '
