#1 rom Hamilton set up Mouldings tap for a d von lebaobei123 09.03.2019 03:45

White Sox rookie first baseman Jose Abreu came to major league baseball with some hype, as many Cubans do, but there wasnt any expectation for the kind of first month that hes enjoying. 27-years-old with a power-hitters build (listed at 6-foot-3, 255 pounds), Abreu has roared into the majors, with 10 home runs, 31 RBI, a .262 batting average and .962 OPS in his first 26 games. As with any one-month sample, these numbers arent sustainable, but what is fair to expect from Abreu? For one thing, his batting average on balls in play is .246, which is well below average, so it would be fair to expect his batting average to go up as a few more balls fall in, but hes also had a major-league best 33.3% of his flyballs leave the park, which isnt going to hold. Over the past five seasons, there have been two seasons in which a player finished with more than 27% of his flyballs turning into home runs -- Adam Dunn in 2012 (29.3%) and Chris Davis in 2013 (29.6%) -- so Abreu is most likely to fall off his current 62-home run pace. No, seriously. What will bear watching with Abreu is how pitchers adjust to him as he makes his way through the league. He swings at a lot of pitches out of the strike zone and hes already seeing among thelowest percentage of strikes when hes at the plate, so pitchers are learning. Its also interesting to note that, thus far, while Abreu destroys fastballs and sliders, hes struggled with change-ups. If thats the scouting report, surely hell start seeing more change-ups, if just to affect his timing. At this point, 14.5% of the pitches Abreu has faced have been change-ups; it will be interesting to see if that number increases over the next month or more. None of this anticipated regression should come as a surprise, merely as a caution. Baseball tends to catch up to sluggers, especially ones that are willing to expand their strike zone by swinging freely. GOOD ADDS (available in at least 40% of TSN leagues) Nick Castellanos, 3B, Detroit - 3 HR, 13 RBI, .258 AVG, 7 R, 66 AB (Available: 71.6%) Dioner Navarro, C, Toronto - 1 HR, 14 RBI, .309 AVG, 11 R, 81 AB (Available: 89.6%) Alberto Callaspo, 3B/2B, Oakland - 3 HR, 13 RBI, .272 AVG, 9 R, 81 AB (Available: 74.6%) Casey McGehee, 3B, Miami - 0 HR, 16 RBI, .287 AVG, 5 R, 94 AB (Available: 75.8%) Dillon Gee, RHP, N.Y. Mets - 2-1, 2.88 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 27 K, 40 2/3 IP (Available: 65.7%) Ian Kennedy, RHP, San Diego - 2-3, 3.16 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 37 K, 37 IP (Available: 76.2%) CLOSER NOTES The Angels have demoted Ernesto Frieri, leaving side-arming veteran Joe Smith for the role. Smith, 30, recorded the first three saves of his career last season for Cleveland. While hes not the classic fire-balling closer, Smith has managed to miss bats this year, striking out 11 in 10 innings, the best rate of his career. Pirates closer Jason Grilli is on the DL with a strained oblique. Mark Melancon, who has 37 career saves, takes over. Melancon has been really good for the Pirates over the past couple seasons, posting a 1.41 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 84 games, striking out 79 in 83 innings. If the Pirates are in position to win games, Melancon is qualified to close them out.

Pressley missed all of last season with Cincinnati because of a knee injury, but the 5-foot-10, 249-pounder had been expected to fill a need on Clevelands roster.OTTAWA, Ont. -- Darren Moulding came into the Rideau Curling Club in Ottawa with a bad memory on his mind, but he left it with a much better one. Moulding and his Alberta rink from Coaldale and Airdrie captured the 2014 Canadian mixed curling championship with an 8-5 win over defending champion Cory Heggestad of Ontario, ten years after he fell short to Saskatchewans Steve Laycock at the Rideau Club in the final of the Canadian junior mens championship. "I thought about it. Its even the same sheet of ice," Moulding said with a chuckle. "Its something thats bothered me for 10 years. "Just two years ago, somebody was talking to me about it and asked me about the double I missed in seven (against Laycock) and I damn near started to cry. So, yeah, it puts a bit of a lid on that for me. It was something that always chafed me a little bit." Mouldings rink of Anna-Marie Moulding, Heather Jensen, and Brent Hamilton claimed Albertas 10th title at the Canadian Mixed, and first since Calgarys Dean Ross prevailed in 2008. Alberta, 9-2 and first place after the round robin, had a slow start, giving up a steal of one to an Ontario team that won three times on Friday to reach the final. But Moulding came back strong the next two ends, tapping for a deuce in the second and stealing one in the third whhen Heggestad attempted a double-takeout.dddddddddddd But Heggestad tied it with single points in the next two ends, and forced Moulding to a single in the sixth before taking his first lead of the game with a great double-takeout in the seventh to score two. A runback double-takeout from Hamilton set up Mouldings tap for a deuce to retake the lead. In the ninth, two Ontario picks left Heggestad with only a tough in-off to score; he would miss it, and Moulding would steal two to put the game and the national championship away. "It was a crazy game," said Moulding. "We had our chances. We almost broke it open in five when I had a shot for five or six. After missing that it felt like somebody kicking me in the gut. But then you go, OK, were tied with the hammer. Someone tells us were tied with hammer with five ends to go to win a Canadian championship, you take it, right? With the win, Moulding gets two entries (two two-person teams) into the 2014 Canadian Mixed Doubles trials, slated for March 19-23, also in Ottawa. The winner of the 32-team competition will then represent Canada at the World Mixed Doubles in Scotland in April. The 2015 Canadian Mixed Championship is scheduled for Nov. 8-15, with the pre-qualifier to take place Nov. 6 and 7 at the Granite Club, in North Bay, Ont. ' ' '
