As we kick off another NFL season, Im again trotting out predictions for rookies who will perform well. Cheap Carlos Zambrano Jersey . Just remember: This is NOT just a talent survey. Its all about opportunity. For example, going into Week 1, I dont think Cowboys starting quarterback Dak Prescott?is the best rookie QB, but where opportunity meets talent, rookies thrive.So here are my predictions for the 2016 All-Rookie Team.Note: There are more than 11 players on each side; I added a spot or two because of how teams set up their lineups -- there is no base look anymore.OFFENSEQuarterbackDak Prescott, DallasHes penciled in behind arguably the best offensive line in football, with the chance to throw (and run) with plenty of favorable down-and-distance situations. Will it be 3-4 weeks, or 9-10? Thats the question. Just keep an eye on Philly. Theres at least a possibility that Carson Wentz will get more starts than Prescott. Cheap Greg Maddux Jersey .

I never really think about hits but when you have no hits, its nice to get that first one, said Pollock, who hit .315 with 20 home runs, 39 steals and 192 hits last season. I still feel like the games a little fast, but its natural. Im sure it will get better.I was trying to impact the game as many ways as I can, he added.Yasmany Tomas homered, Welington Castillo drove in four runs and Archie Bradley earned his first win in more than a month for Arizona, which totaled 18 hits and rebounded from a blowout loss the previous day.Castillo had two hits, a run-scoring single in the fifth and an RBI double in the eighth, and knocked in runs with a fielders choice grounder and a sacrifice fly.We all know that this team can hit like that, so its just about time, Castillo said.

For Schebler, it was his third homer in two games.Pollocks two steals and Castillos sacrifice fly gave the Diamondbacks a 5-2 lead in the third.LEADOFF MANPhil Gosselin hit leadoff for Arizona on Sunday, giving star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt a day off.

ANAHEIM, Calif. Shoes Ireland Online . -- Rick Porcello gave the Boston Red Sox just what they needed.Porcello pitched a five-hitter for his first complete game since 2014, Xander Bogaerts homered and drove in three runs, and the Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Angels 6-2 on Friday night, snapping a four-game losing streak.Twenty-four hours ago, we were probably in a much different place mentally, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Hes our stopper.Porcello (14-2) struck out three while winning his sixth straight start -- also for the first time since 2014 -- and eighth consecutive decision. He became the majors fourth 14-game winner, joining Baltimores Chris Tillman, the Chicago White Soxs Chris Sale, and Washingtons Stephen Strasburg.He had just very good command the entire night, Farrell said. He stayed ahead in the count, pitched to all quadrants of the strike zone, he used his four-seamer in to some powerful right hitters in that lineup. ... He just continued to pitch at a very good pace throughout the game tonight and a very strong effort on his part.Porcello hasnt lost since May 17 and hes pitched five or more innings in 29 straight starts dating back to last Aug. 26. His timing and command have allowed him to establish consistency this season.Its what Ive been trying to do, Porcello said. I think getting ahead of hitters has been the biggest thing and tonight, that was probably one of my better games of establishing strike one and going from there. Limiting baserunners and not giving free passes is huge and thats what I have to do to give us a chance.Jackie Bradley Jr. also homered for the 17th time this season.Tim Lincecum (3-4) continued to struggle in his comeback attempt, giving up four earned runs and five hits with four walks. He was removed after giving up Bradleys homer -- his 16th -- leading off the sixth.The first 30 pitches Tim threw, I thought it was pretty obvious he had problems with his delivery and his release point, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. He couldnt get his fastball into the zone. Then he went through some stretches when his fastball was in sync and he threw some much better pitches.Lincecum has surrendered four or more runs in five of eight starts this season but the Angels will continue to give him a chance to fix what ails him as Scioscia said his spot in the rotation is safe.He knows what he needs to do, Scioscia said. Hes working hard to get there. Hopefully, we start to see some steps forward here.Jhoulys Chacin relieved Lincecum and gave up two earned runs through four innings as the Angels snapped a season-high seven-game home winning streak.The Angels took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second but after getting one out in the top of the third, Lincecum allowed the next five batters to reach. David Ortiz tied the game with a single to left that scored Bogaerts.Lincecum then loaded the bases in the fourth and Aaron Hill scored on Mookie Betts sacrifice fly to give Boston a lead. Bradleys 16th home run made it 4-2.Its just not there, Lincecum said. I felt like I battled myself every inning. Im trying to find that fifth or sixth gear that I can make good pitches with. I dont know. I keep battling myself and making it really hard to get outs.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: RHP Craig Kimbrel will make a rehab appearance for Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday. Hell go one inning and the team will check in with him on Sunday to determine the next course of action. Kimbrel was placed on the 15-day disabled list on July 9 with a medial meniscus tear in his left knee.Angels: RHP Garrett Richards will undergo an examination on Wednesday to determine how successful stem cell treatments have been on his torn ulnar collateral ligament. ...

He really bailed us out.Saros was one of the five players recalled from Milwaukee to fill in for several Predators players still suffering from food poisoning. The problem has been attributed by team officials to chicken soup as part of the pregame meal in Detroit on Friday night.We were much less sick for this game, Laviolette said.

Marc-Andre Fleury gave up the five goals on 23 shots through the first two periods before being replaced by Mike Condon, who stopped all seven shots he faced in the third.We have to become a more difficult team to play against, Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said.

You have to continue to keep playing.It was great to get my first NHL victory. It was an amazing thing. It was even better to get it against Pittsburgh since Fleury was one of my early idols. I have spent a lot of time watching his highlights.Saros credited his teammates with making his job a little easier by keeping the area in front of the net clear.I give a lot of credit to the guys in front of me particularly on rebounds, Saros said. They kept guys out of the front of the net so I could see the puck well. It was a lot of fun to play behind those guys.Pekka Rinne, Mike Fisher, Craig Smith and Colton Sissons were all sidelined dealing by the illness.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Elvis Andrus refuses to be defined by what happened last October, and those two errors the Texas Rangers shortstop made on routine plays. Sneakers Clearance Canada .There was the misplayed grounder in that disastrous seventh inning of the ALDS-deciding fifth game at Toronto. Later came a dropped throw on what would have been a sure force out in the inning punctuated by Jose Bautistas go-ahead homer and emphatic bat flip .Tears flowed from Andrus eyes after that loss, a gut-punch finish likely just short of the feeling the Rangers had in 2011 after twice coming within a strike of winning their first World Series.But out of that also came a fresh determination and drive for Andrus, who at 28 and in his eighth season is the teams longest-tenured position player.I put it on my shoulder, and Im built for that. I knew it was going to be a challenging year for me, Andrus said. But at the same time I was excited, I was excited to actually how see what I was made of, and the regular season is the first step. I think that Im way more ready for the postseason this year.The AL West champion Rangers, in the playoffs for the fifth time in seven years, clinched home-field advantage for the entire postseason. They host Game 1 of the AL Division Series on Thursday against the Blue Jays, who beat Baltimore 5-2 in an 11-inning AL wild-card game Tuesday night.With a career-best .302 batting average in the regular season, Andrus had his first .300 season. He also had career highs with eight home runs , 69 RBI and 46 extra-base hits, and his 70 strikeouts were the fewest in his career.Andrus views and treats third baseman Adrian Beltre like a big brother -- Im the one being annoying, Andrus said with a smile, a reference to some of their often entertaining interactions on the field and in the dugout.Beltre knows what happened to Andrus in Toronto last year could have happened to anybody.We talked about it after that happened, and that kind of pushed him to learn from that mistake and have more motivation to come this year and do what he did, Beltre said. This year has been really good for him, and it was nice to see that instead of breaking him, it kind of made him stronger. Elvis has a really good mentality.General manager Jon Daniels said it still stands out to him, seeing an emotional and accountable Andrus at his locker after that season-ending loss, answering every question candidly. He said his shortstop immediately embraced the idea that he wanted to work to get better.Daniels also spoke this week about Andrus taking more of a leadership role this season with younger players on the team, like Beltre and former teammate and current Rangers special assistant Michael Young have with the shortstop.Elvis works hard every offseason, so that part isnt new, Daniels said. Elvis has been to the postseason a lot. ... Since hes been here, hes only been on winning teams, and I think he understands how hard it is, and not to take it for granted. Thats what I saw this winter, was him kind of taking that realization and putting it into action.Andrus has seen the replays of those ALDS errors and that seventh inning a few times, and said it doesnt affect him. Those clips are sure to be shown quite a few times this postseason, as long as the Rangers keep playing.I would like to see that quite a few times, especially before every game, Andrus said. See what it did to me. ... I have no problem with that.More October baseball just makes for a better Elvis comeback. Cheap Sneakers Canada Online .

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Vikings placed safety Michael Griffin on injured reserve Saturday afternoon, ending the two-time Pro Bowlers bid to start next to Harrison Smith.Griffin, who was on crutches in the teams locker room Sunday after his back seized up against the San Diego Chargers, did not play in the teams final preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday night.On Saturday afternoon, he posted a message on Instagram that suggested hed been released: Just want to thank the @vikings organization for the opportunity and want to wish them the best this season. Thanks for memories and friendships that will never be broken. #skolvikesThe safety said he wasnt sure at the time if the Vikings would release him or put him on injured reserve, but when he was playing on a one-year deal at age 31, he figured the net effect of the move was the same.It was more likely I wasnt going to be able to play next week, Griffin said. I felt like the writing was on the wall. Youre not going to keep a guy whos going to be injured, and you dont know how long he was going to be out. I got an epidural shot on Monday; its getting better, but I dont know when Ill be able to be fully 100 [percent].Griffin said he plans to get a second opinion on his back, whhich he first injured several days before the Vikings-Chargers game. Sneakers Canada Cheap. We didnt know exactly what it was. I thought I could play, but a couple plays into the game, it just locked up, he said. I was trying to make the team. When youre an older guy, and youre not playing, its not going to help.Griffin had man-to-man coverage on a Chargers tight end when Melvin Gordon broke through the line, forcing Griffin to make a quick change of direction in pursuit of the running back. Gordon sprinted away for a 39-yard touchdown, which was the first in U.S. Bank Stadium history.The Vikings signed Griffin to a one-year, $2.5 million deal in March, hoping he could turn into the kind of dynamic safety theyve sought next to Smith. Griffin, though, lost out on the starting job to Andrew Sendejo while fighting through his back injury.Minnesota will keep seventh-round pick Jayron Kearse after an impressive preseason in which the Clemson product intercepted two passes and forced a fumble. Anthony Harris, who started two games in 2015 after the Vikings signed the safety as an undrafted free agent, also made the Vikings final roster. ' ' '

METAIRIE, La. Cheap Gary Carter Jersey . -- James Laurinaitis expects to be released from the New Orleans Saints injured reserve list soon, which will free him to sign with other teams, a league source confirmed.The news was first reported by NFL Networks Mike Garafolo.Laurinaitis, 29, was placed on IR two weeks ago with a quad injury -- which is not expected to be a long-term issue. The move was at least partly performance-related, since the Saints promoted veteran Craig Robertson into the starting middle linebacker spot while Laurinaitis was still playing through the injury.Laurinaitis had not missed a game -- and barely missed a snap -- during his first seven seasons with the St. Louis Rams, where he became the franchises all-time leading tackler with 852 before being released in February.He then signed a three-year deal with the Saints but started just three games with 17 tackles before suffering the quad injury in Week 3.Its definitely frustrating, Laurinaitis said last week after being placed on IR. You want to be out there and contribute with the guys any way possible. But I think my mindset now is just mentally staying engaged and just helping in any way, shape or form in the locker room.When asked if he thinks the IR move was partly performance-related, Laurinaitis said, Im probably the wrong person to ask. I think its probably a little bit of both.I know with the injuries that weve already had at linebacker they made a decision they thought the team needed to make, so you cant fault them for that, Laurinaitis said. And I dont know what their big picture of kind of the map of the squad is, but they did what was best for the team.Laurinaitis deal was worth $8.25 million, plus incentives. But nothing was guaranteed beyond this years $3.25 million in salary and bonuses.The Saints were hoping he would be a quarterback for their defense, which struggled last year with assignment and alignment errors. And he was a strong voice in the locker room who was voted as a team captain before the season.But Robertson, who began his career with the Cleveland Browns, has proved to be more effective in that role on the field. And the Saints have spent the majority of their time in three-safety, two-linebacker packages in recent weeks. Cheap MLB Jerseys . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual.

Nico Rosberg set the pace in Practice Two for Mercedes, but Ferraris Kimi Raikkonen was in close proximity at the top of the times. Stan Smith Canada Sale . The gap between the pair was just 0.254 seconds, a significant reduction of four tenths from the gap between the two teams in the corresponding session at the previous race in Russia. Raikkonens time was posted on used soft tyres, further underlining the pace the Finn demonstrated. I dont get the feeling that Mercedes looks anywhere as dominant as it normally does when I am out here on a Friday, said Sky Sports F1s Martin Brundle from trackside. In the sister cars neither Lewis Hamilton nor Sebastian Vettel managed clean flying laps due to a mixture of traffic and driving errors. The world champion was third quickest, seven tenths down on Rosberg, with the Ferrari driver fourth, a further four tenths back. It is definitely tighter in Barcelona because of all the testing the teams know the set up, said Mercedes boss Toto Wolff. But it is tricky, you could see that Lewis wasnt really happy with his car, so we havent found the sweet spot yet.On home soil Carlos Sainz was a remarkable fifth for Toro Rosso as he once again demonstrated his pace. The Spaniard may have seen his former team-mate Max Verstappen promoted to the senior team ahead of this weekend, but emerged top of all four Red Bull backed drivers in the session. Sainz was a massive 1.2 seconds quicker than Daniil Kvyat in the sister Toro Rosso. Who has the best line-up? Vote on whether Mercedes, Ferrari, Red Bull or McLaren have the driver best line-up Daniel Ricciardo was sixth, two tenths ahead of Verstappen, with the new team-mates split by Fernando Alonso in a heavily revised McLaren.The Woking team have new front and rear wings in Barcelona, as well as brake duct and floor changes on the MP4-31.

More heavy rain at the U.S. Open flooded a bunker by the 11th green and filled fairways with large puddles and tiny stream. The course was closed for four hours during the first full day of practice, and then shut down for good later in the afternoon. Brandt Jobe played three holes when he heard a horn to stop play. Jim Herman managed to play one hole. Practice rounds are important because only a dozen or so players have ever seen this 100-year-old course, which has not hosted a U.S. Open in 32 years. Workers were busy running squeegees across the greens and fairways during the afternoon before another downpour arrived. "After the rain this morning, its going to be very sloppy now," Ernie Els said. "Youre not going to see a firm U.S. Open this year, Im sorry. I dont care if they get helicopters flying over the fairways, its not going to dry up. Were going to have a soft golf course this week -- all week." The forecast was for mostly dry conditions Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by a 40 per cent chance of rain on Thursday for the opening round. Merion received more than 3 inches of rain on Friday, and Mondays downpours -- three of them -- didnt help. The low point on the East course is the 11th hole, and a bunker was filled with water from an overflowing stream. Course superintendent Matt Shaffer said the base sand was left alone. Workers removed the silt and put about three tons of new sand in the bunker, tamped it down and "we were ready to go." For now, officials were hopeful. Shaffer said Merion has had two big rains, and both times 11th green has stayed above water. And while there were tiny streams running through fairways and large pools of water on sections of the greens, the water appeared to drain quickly. "This golf course is not built on sand, so its got the heavier soils," USGA executive director Mike Davis said. Stan Smith Canada Outlet. "But it is maybe the best draining golf course I have ever seen. If you walk this course, you know theres hardly any flat lies at Merion." Merion is 6,996 yards on the scorecard, the shortest U.S. Open course since Shinnecock Hills in 2004. The rough is thicker than usual compared with most recent U.S. Opens, though soft greens are a recipe for low scoring no matter the golf course. Congressional was softened significantly by rain, and Rory McIlroy shattered the scoring record at 16-under 268 for an eight-shot win. As for the week, it rained so much at Bethpage Black in 2002 that the tournament barely finished 72 holes on Monday, with Lucas Glover winning. Els mentioned the firm fairways because thats what can make Merion tricky. Tiger Woods, Adam Scott and Rory McIlroy were among those who came to Merion early, and they all spoke about the experience necessary to find the right angle off the tee to keep the ball in the fairway. Geoff Ogilvy played Sunday for the first time and mentioned the best driver would fare well -- but not necessarily the straightest driver. With soft fairways, it becomes more of a target. "Obviously with it being a little soft, it becomes a little more simple than what it was," Scott said. "The ball is just going to stop where it lands." Davis said the USGA would try to move the hole locations to some of the higher spots on the greens to avoid standing water if it rains on Thursday. As for the fairways, even with standing water, the U.S. Open could be played as long as players could move the ball to a dry spot that didnt add significant distance to their shots. The next two days could be crucial. "We just need a little bit of sunshine," Shaffer said. ' ' '
