LONDON, Ont. Vick Ballard Jersey . —Dale Hunter is
returning to his old head coaching job with the London Knights. The Ontario
Hockey League club announced Tuesday that Hunter will resume his role effective
immediately and that his brother Mark will continue his duties as general
manager. Hunter had served as Knights head coach since 2001 before leaving the
team last November to accept a head coaching job with the Washington Capitals.
He resigned from that position in May. Mark Hunter handled general manager and
coaching duties when his brother left for the NHL. He guided the Knights to the
second OHL championship in team history last month. London made it to the final
of the MasterCard Memorial Cup but dropped a 2-1 overtime decision to the Quebec
Major Junior Hockey Leagues Shawinigan Cataractes. In 688 career games as
Knights head coach, Dale Hunter has a 451-189-23-25 record. Robert Mathis Jersey .J. —On the surface,
it would appear the New Jersey Devils notched a split of their two playoff games
with the Florida Panthers by playing two periods. Anthony Castonzo Jersey .S. Open,

The New York Mets first baseman responded Tuesday to an ESPNNewYork.com report
that said, citing an anonymous baseball source, the team will consider trading
him this off-season in part because of concerns that hes resistant to coaching
and stays out too late. “I dont really have an answer for that because its never
been an issue. Ive never done anything wrong,” Davis told reporters. “I show up
to the field ready to play every day. I really dont even know where its coming
from and its not really true.” Davis said hes never had a meeting with the Mets
about his nightlife, and the criticism came “out of the blue.” “Its hard to
answer questions when no one can say who it was or why they even said it,” Davis
explained. “I dont know if its a cheap shot. Its falsely accused, I guess. But
it just comes out of nowhere and it happens to athletes like this. A rumour, or
something said, and its blown out of proportion, so you really cant do anything
about it.” Mets manager Terry Collins defended Davis, saying theres no way he
could have played 141 games already this season if he was partying too hard all
the time. Collins hinted that such behaviour was more common in baseball 20
years ago—before there was testing for amphetamines—but now players cant
simply “fix it” if theyre tired or have a hangover. “Theres not a coach in that
office, not the manager, the front office, that has ever brought up a problem
with Ike Davis,” Collins said. “So that is as far from the truth as anything Ive
ever read. “I just want to make sure everybody understands—were behind
Ike Davis 100 per cent. I dont want this to ever be a defamation on his
character. Hes a stand-up guy. Matter of fact, speaks the truth above and beyond
the need for it,” he added. Davis, who played only 36 games last season because
of an ankle injury, was confounded by the whole thing. “I dont know what late is
because when you leave the ballpark at 12, you get back to your place at 12:30,
you watch a movie, its 2:30. Is that late?” he said. “Its up to everyone to
decide what late is. If I had a job where I had to wake up at 6 in the morning
it might be late, but its not. So our lifestyle is a little different.” Davis
was penciled in to bat cleanup Tuesday night before New Yorks game against the
Philadelphia Phillies was postponed because of inclement weather. The game was
called about three hours before it was supposed to start and will be made up at
7:10 p.m. on Thursday, originally a day off for both clubs. The surging Phillies
beggan the day trailing St. Reggie Wayne Jersey. Louis by 3 1/2 games for
the second NL wild-card spot with 14 to play, though other teams were in their
path. “For me, Id just as soon play today. I dont know sometimes if sitting
helps you or not,” Philadelphia manager Charlie Manuel said. Light rain was
falling on a blustery evening at Citi Field, with a howling wind whipping
through the ballpark under overcast skies. The forecast called for thunderstorms
throughout the night. Across town, the game between the Toronto Blue Jays and
New York Yankees also was postponed. Cole Hamels will pitch Wednesday night for
Philadelphia against Mets rookie Matt Harvey, slated to make his final start of
the season. The Phillies bumped Tyler Cloyd from Tuesday to Thursday, when he
will face fellow rookie Jeremy Hefner. Davis got off to a horrendous start this
season and the Mets considered sending him to the minors to work through his
struggles. Supportive teammates, however, expressed to the club their desire
that he stay with them in the big leagues—and Davis rebounded. He is hitting
only .223 but leads the Mets (66-81) with 27 home runs and is tied with
David Wright for tops on the team in RBIs (81). “If youve seen my stances this
year, weve tried a lot of things,” Davis said. “Ive done everything the coaches
have asked me.” After seeing the report, he said he asked New Yorks coaches if
they had any issue with him and they said no. “It doesnt even really make
sense,” Davis said. “Youd think that would have come out when I was hitting .100
with no home runs and no RBIs. But since that, Ive done better. Now its coming
out. Its kind of weird.” The 25-year-old Davis, in his third big league season,
is one of the few Mets position players who might draw aggressive interest from
other teams. If he was traded for much-needed help in other areas, New York
could go with Lucas Duda at first base, his natural position. Duda has showed
power potential but he struggled to adapt to the outfield this season and was
demoted to the minors for a month. “Now, as far as a possible trade, theres not
a guy in that clubhouse who cant get traded. Not a guy,” Collins said. “Ike was
upset today, he came to see me and I said, Look, unfortunately, how some things
work, perception is reality in baseball, as we know. If youre accused of not
playing hard, the only way to change it—play really, really, really hard
every day. And you fight that. So I told Ike, You know what? You fight it.
Finish strong and then give them something to write about. Give them something
really positive to write about.” ’ ’ ’
