The Blue Jays are still very much in the American League East race as well as
the Wild Card picture. Ray Rice Authentic Jersey . Theyre also in a
bit of a rut, having gone 14-14 over their last 28 games. Dont hold your breath
waiting for a trade though, not unless you can go without breathing until
mid-July. The earliest the Jays pulled off a deal in-season during the last two
years was July 14, 2010, when they acquired Yunel Escobar in a five-player swap
with Atlanta. The last two seasons, there have been no major swaps by any club
in the month of June. The first major trade last season occurred right after the
All-Star Game when the Mets dealt their former closer Francisco Rodriguez
(K-Rod) to Milwaukee. The Jays pulled off that three-way deal with St. Louis and
the White Sox that landed Colby Rasmus on July 27 and the Kelly Johnson swap
with Arizona for Aaron Hill and John MacDonald on August 23. Even if the Blue
Jays are pushing hard for the Cubs Matt Garza or maybe even Ryan Dempster, dont
expect anything to happen overnight. Positives and Negatives The Jays dropped
two out of three at Atlanta over the weekend to fall to 3-3 in inter-league
play. There were some positives, such as the hitting of Brett Lawrie and
Colby Rasmus out of the top two spots in the order and the experiment of putting
Edwin Encarnacion in left field on Sunday. He fielded two chances without a
problem and rapped out another three hits. Ricky Romero continues to be a
puzzler. He only lasted 69 pitches, in the shortest outing of his Major League
career by pitch count. Ricky didnt get the loss because of the way his teammates
exploded from the fifth inning on, once he was out of the game. He may be 7-1,
but this Ricky hasnt pitched nearly as well as the All-Star version of last
year. Adam Lind is hitting .405 at Las Vegas, but there is no indication hes
going to be rejoining the big club anytime soon. A bit of a set-back for
Vladimir Guerrero as well. He was hit on the hand by a pitch Saturday and had to
come out of the 51s game early. Vlady didnt play Sunday either and is listed as
day-to-day. Hes only hitting .214 at Vegas with no homers and two runs batted
in. Upcoming Games The Jays are back home now for a six-game inter-league
homestand against Washington and Philadelphia. The Nationals, with a Major
League-leading staff ERA of 2.97 are coming off a three-game sweep at Fenway
where they had never beaten the Red Sox before and lead the N.L East by two
games on Atlanta. It will be the first chance Blue Jays fans get to see
19-year-old budding outfield star Bryce Harper and the ace of the Nats staff
Stephen Strasburg, who struck out 13 at Fenway on Friday night in just six
innings. Strasburg will be pitching the series finale on Wednesday afternoon
against Kyle Drabek. The Phillies, minus the injured Roy Halladay, hit town
Friday night. The Phils are five and a half games back of the Giants and the
second Wild Card slot. Theyre going to be sellers at the deadline if they dont
get back on track the rest of this month. Its unfathomable that Phils lefty
Cliff Lee has a 3.18 era through 10 starts and still hasnt won yet. Ray Rice White Jersey . —Luke Hochevar was
taken aback when he walked into the managers office one day and manager Ned Yost
and the Royals coaches started trying to convince him to make a change. Ray Lewis Jersey . The quarterback, however,
also knows he cant start calling Haley out when things dont go as planned, no
matter how bothered the Steelers captain may get by the playcalling Its why
Roethlisberger apologized to Haley, coach Mike Tomlin and owner Art Rooney II
after making pointed remarks about the direction of the offence following a
27-24 overtime loss to Dallas on Sunday. http://www.ravenssuperbowl47proshop.com/torrey-smith-jerseys
. – Like a kid eyeing his presents, Jay Cutler could hardly contain his
excitement. Anquan Boldin Elite Jersey . The Minnesota
Twins signed Josh Willingham to be their hammer in situations just like this,
and the struggling slugger delivered in a big way against the Oakland Athletics
on Tuesday night. Terrell Suggs Womens Jersey . It was the
first time the slugger really didnt know what to do. Already with two homers in
the first game back since a four-homer performance on the road earlier this
week, Hamilton no longer could suppress a smile.METAIRIE, La. —The New Orleans
Saints have claimed cornerback Jerome Murphy off of waivers from the St. Louis
Rams and have released cornerback Elbert Mack. Murphy, whose acquisition was
announced Sunday, was selected by the Rams out of South Florida in the third
round of the 2010 draft. He played in 14 games as a rookie before missing all of
2011 with a broken ankle. In his rookie season, Murphy was credited with 30
total tackles and an interception, along with seven special teams tackles and a
fumble recovery. Ed Reed Womens Jersey. He sought to come back
this season with the Rams, who cut him at the end of the preseason. Mack is a
fifth-year cornerback signed by New Orleans during the past off-season. He
played the past four seasons with Tampa Bay. ’ ’ ’
