PHILADELPHIA - Roy Halladay is making progress in his recovery from a back
injury and the Philadelphia Phillies ace could throw off a bullpen mound next
week. Eddie Royal Jersey . Halladay, a two-time Cy
Young Award winner, has been out since May 29 because of a strained latissimus
dorsi muscle on the right side of his back. He began a throwing program 12 days
ago and assistant general manager Scott Proefrock says its going well. Halladay
is 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA in 11 starts. He has pitched at least 220 innings in each
of the past six seasons, and four times led the league in innings. He was tied
for the NL lead with 72 1-3 innings this year before he went on the disabled
list. Chase Utley returned to the Phillies lineup Wednesday, and Ryan Howard
will begin a rehab stint Thursday night. Robert Meachem Jersey .C. —So much for Tajh
Boyds late-season slump. Melvin Ingram Jersey . The 38-year-old, a
two-time All-Star, had been relegated to part-time duty and was batting .208 in
24 at-bats for the last-place Angels (6-14). http://www.shopthesandiegochargers.com/antoine-cason-jerseys
. Stanton hit his 12th home run in May to tie the franchise record for a single
month and the Marlins completed a three-game sweep of the first-place Washington
Nationals with a 5-3 win Wednesday night. Malcom Floyd Jersey . However, the
25-year-old burner is an intriguing sleeper candidate for fantasy football as he
joins a team needing an upgrade at wideout. Behind five-time Pro Bowler
Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell (74 catches over two seasons) is the most proven
receiver on the Carolina roster, so Murphy has an opportunity to not only earn
playing time but, because of his deep speed, has a chance to make big
significant plays in the offence. Malcom Floyd Womens Jersey . Ciampini, 18,
made the announcement on his Twitter account @lucaciampini on Tuesday. The
Montreal native was taken second overall by the Mooseheads in the 2010 QMJHL
draft and was not taken at the NHL draft in June.Six of the eight quarterfinal
places have now been filled at UEFA Euro 2012, with the final two spots set to
be decided on Tuesday. As Group C came to a conclusion on Monday, Spain and
Italy advanced but both teams found a determined challenger in their way. Here
are five thoughts from the final round of group matches at UEFA EURO 2012:
Spains Cutting Edge It certainly wasnt a classic performance from Spain, but if
youre going to be a champion you have to find a way to get the job done. Thats
exactly what Spain did against Croatia. They were nowhere near their best, but
Jesus Navas made an impact coming on as a substitute and scored the goal that
won the match with just two minutes remaining. The question for Spain is whether
they have enough to be able to break teams down. Croatia defended well and kept
many players behind the ball, forcing Spain to try and find a way through. In
the end they got the breakthrough, but for long periods of the match it looked
as though the reigning World and European Champions would fail to find a goal.
Spain advance to the quarterfinals as the winners of Group C and will now play
the runner-up of Group D on Saturday in Donetsk, but they will have to find more
of a cutting edge when they come up against the most stubborn defences in Europe
if they are to create history and win a third straight major tournament.
Italians March On Cesare Prandelli changed his formation for Italys final group
match against a Republic of Ireland side that had already had their chances of
progressing ended. Prandelli switched to a back four after playing with three at
the back during their opening two matches. Whichever formation the Italians use,
they have looked calm and composed in defence for most of the tournament so far.
Mario Balotelli had picked up a knee injury in training but there was talk
leading up to the match that he wouldnt have been included in the side anyway.
Prandelli left the Manchester City forward on the bench, but he came on with a
point to prove and gave Italy the insurance goal in the 90th minute. Balotelli
wont be happy about being left out. He isnt known for his calm response to
situations and it will be interesting to see how he reacts if Prandelli doesnt
include him in the eleven for the Quarter Final. Its a big decision for the
Italian coach who needs to keep Balotelli on side. Louis Vasquez Jersey. Ronaldo Shines
Cristiano Ronaldo has received much criticism for his performances in a Portugal
shirt but he answered his critics in Portugals 2-1 win over the Netherlands on
Sunday to book their place in the quarterfinals. He has made more of an
attacking impact with each game of this tournament. Against Germany he had to
play a more defensive role, while in the game against Denmark he was given more
of a free reign to attack. In that match he missed a few good chances, but he
wasnt going to suffer the same fate against the Dutch. Ronaldo kept his cool to
finish well on both goals, and the way in which he stepped inside the defender
to score his second was a classy move. It also speaks well about Ronaldos
mentality. He didnt let the pressure get to him and let his ability shine
through. Group A Surprises Hands up all those who successfully predicted that
the Czech Republic and Greece would make it out of Group A? I certainly didnt.
In fact, I couldnt have been more wrong predicting Russia and Poland would
qualify for the quarterfinals. A group that was dubbed the weakest in the
tournament produced some really entertaining matches and its fair share of
surprises. Greece are never going to be pretty to watch, but they found a way to
win and thats all that matters. They arent playing to satisfy the football
purists. Their sole goal is to go as far in the tournament as they can, and
credit to them for finding a way to progress. Unfortunately for Greece, they now
come up against a German team that is looking like a well oiled machine. Dutch
Disaster The Netherlands go home with their heads held low. Its crazy that a
side filled with that much quality has failed to make it out of the group stage.
But thats what happens when you get a squad that plays as individuals rather
than as a team. They started with a shock defeat against Denmark and couldnt
find a way to get back on track. For a squad that included 10 of the 11 players
that started the World Cup Final two years ago to lose all three of its matches
in this tournament is inconceivable. The position of Netherlands coach Bert Van
Marwick has to come under question moving forward. What a letdown. ’ ’ ’
