LUCERNE, Switzerland—Two more Canadian boats advanced to the Samsung World
Rowing Cup medal round Saturday as the mens pair and lightweight mens double
rowed strong semifinal races. Michael Oher Womens Jersey . Scott Frandsen
of Kelowna, B.C., and Victorias David Calder won their mens pair semifinal in a
time of six minutes 21.51 seconds. Britain was second in 6:23.08 and Italy third
in 6:27.52. All three teams qualified for the final. “Todays race was a good one
for Scott and I, we wanted to get out and test ourselves against the Italians,”
Calder said. “The last time we raced them, they won a bronze medal at the Worlds
and we were fifth, so it was a big step for us. “We felt like we built on the
heat yesterday, and we hope to build even more for tomorrows final.” Mens team
alternates Spencer Crowley of Lantzville, B.C., and Will Dean of Kelowna, rowed
in the other mens pair semifinal and missed out on the third A final berth with
a time of in 6:28.19. Just The lightweight mens double of Doug Vandor of
Dewittville, Que., and Winnipegs Morgan Jarvis finished second in their
semifinal and advanced. Vandor and Jarvis finished in 6:16.08 behind New Zealand
(6:15.74). Great Britain also advanced in 6:21.46. “We are here as a first test
to see how we compare,” Jarvis said. “We were in a semi with some of the best
boats, and we knew we wanted to be in there competing with them. So today we
managed to do that—head in, working together and focused on our race. It
turned out pretty well. Its a positive first step to keep going forward and do
more work in our training.” The mens four was fourth in the repechage in
5:54.41, and must now row in the B final for places seven to 12. The lightweight
womens double of Tracy Cameron of Shubenacadie, N.S., and Victorias Lindsay
Jennerich also missed out on an A final berth, placing third in the repechage.
The mens double team finished sixth in its semifinal, while the womens pair team
was fifth in its semi. Neither boat advanced to the A final. Marshal Yanda Jersey . Peliwo is off to his

. Anderson and Trent Guy each scored two touchdowns as the Alouettes took the
battle for first place in the CFL East Division in an unexpectedly easy 31-10
win on Sunday afternoon. Montreal (8-4) leads the Argonauts (6-6) by four points
with six regular season games left for both clubs. Ed Reed Jersey . Kim Smith of Mission, B.C.,
led the Canadian team in scoring with 10 points. The game marked Canadas final
warmup prior to the FIBA World Olympic qualifying tournament, which begins later
this month in Turkey. Anthony Allen Jersey . Although, in truth,
the Montreal middleweight never left. While Cote last fought in the Octagon in
October 2010 at UFC 121, he has been a constant on all UFC broadcasts in his
role as the organizations French-language commentator.With the second half of
the Major League Baseball season resuming on Friday, the Toronto Blue Jays find
themselves only 2.5 games behind both Wild Card spots, despite suffering a rash
of injuries to their pitching staff. All-Star right fielder Jose Bautista told
the media on Monday that he believes the club should add to their pitching
staff, which is currently missing starters Brandon Morrow, Kyle Drabek and
Drew Hutchison. “If thats what it takes … it has to be done,” Bautista told
the Toronto Sun. “I know its wishful thinking, maybe we can add one and win.
Maybe people like Brett Cecil and other guys take advantage of the opportunity.
Given an opportunity in crucial situations brings out the best sometimes.” While
general manager Alex Anthopoulos has remained tight-lipped as to what the Jays
are trying do before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, Bautista revealed
that the club is in fact shopping for arms. “They know what they have to
address, its a matter of getting it done and I know theyre actively trying to
make our club better,” explained Bautista. “Hopefully they come through and are
able to make a good move.” The two-time Major League home run champion has made
his thoughts crystal clear on the issue, but it might not be that cut and dry.
Tyrod Taylor Jersey. Under Anthopoulos, the
Blue Jays have turned around a once-barren farm system and now boast a
considerable number of prospects, including Justin Nicolino, Noah Syndergaard,
Anthony Gose and Travis dArnaud.  While the club is close to a Wild Card spot,
there are six other teams within 2.5 games of the current wild card holders, the
Angels and Orioles. If the Jays do decide that they need to add an arm or two,
there would likely be a fairly high acquisition cost to pick up what they need,
and management might not be prepared to pay that price. Along those lines, the
Jays have lost seven pitchers to various injuries from their roster thus far
this season, and with their young guns in development in the minors, patience
might be the best course of action so the club can be more competitive in
seasons going forward. Now well ask you. Do you think the Jays should take
advantage of being close to the Wild Card and make a trade to make a run this
season? Or should they stay the course and continue to build for the future? As
always, its Your! Call. ’ ’ ’
