Wednesday at a Calgary mall theatre

New York, NY - Its back to the business of baseball, as World Series hero Pablo Sandoval and former Cy Young winner Max Scherzer headline this years crop of 121 free agents. Adidas Superstar 2 Dames Wit . The Major League Baseball Players Association released the list on Thursday, just a day after the San Francisco Giants captured their third World Series title in five years. Sandoval, the 2012 World Series MVP who had a record 26 hits this postseason, is the top Giant available and could command a hefty payday after his recent heroics. Also on the list is Michael Morse, who had the go-ahead RBI single in San Franciscos 3-2 victory over Kansas City in Game 7 on Wednesday. Starting pitchers Jake Peavy and Ryan Vogelsong are also eligible, as is reliever Sergio Romo. Scherzer may be the No. 1 starting pitcher on the market. He turned down a long-term offer from the Detroit Tigers in March after signing a one-year deal worth $15.25 million to avoid arbitration. The right-hander won the 2013 Cy Young Award after a 21-3 campaign and this past season was 18-5 with a 3.15 ERA and a career-high 252 strikeouts. A couple of other top pitchers available are James Shields, who helped the Royals to the American League title, and Jon Lester, who was dealt from Boston to Oakland in the biggest trade at the July 31 deadline. Other American League stars on the market include Baltimore slugger Nelson Cruz, who led the majors with 40 home runs during his lone season with the Orioles on the heels of his suspension for ties to the Biogenesis scandal, Red Sox closer Koji Uehara, Tigers veterans Torii Hunter and Victor Martinez, Yankees closer David Robertson and Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera. National League stars available include Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez, Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez, Nationals shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera and a trio of Pittsburgh Pirates -- catcher Russell Martin and pitchers Francisco Liriano and Edinson Volquez. Also part of the list are retired players Derek Jeter, Paul Konerko and Bobby Abreu. Another 32 players may become eligible pending option provisions in their contracts. Free agents can begin negotiations with any club starting Nov. 4 at 12:01 a.m. ET. Adidas ZX Flux Weave .com) - Alabama State football has had plenty of success, but the Southwestern Athletic Conference program is hoping new football coach Brian Jenkins can do for it what he did at Bethune-Cookman. Adidas Stan Smith Rood . Louis Cardinals open the season on top of the TSN.CALGARY -- Unlike her two previous Olympic Games, Mellisa Hollingsworth heads to Sochi, Russia, less of a favourite and more an underdog. Shes fine with that. Hollingsworth, from Eckville, Alta., joined Sarah Reid and John Fairbairn of Calgary and Eric Neilson of Kelowna, B.C., as the first skeleton racers named to Canadas 2014 Olympic team Wednesday. Another man and woman may be added to the skeleton team in January. Reid, Fairbairn and Neilson are Olympic rookies. The 33-year-old Hollingsworth says her third Winter Games will be her last and she does not intend to bow out quietly. "Im definitely ready to step up to the plate," she declared. "Im still striving. Im not there to participate, Ill tell you that." Hollingsworth owns over 30 world championship and World Cup medals. The last time many Canadians saw her, Hollingsworth was tearfully apologizing on national television for finishing fifth in the 2010 Winter Olympics. Hollingsworth won a bronze medal in 2006, so the pressure to win a medal at home was enormous. Heading to Sochi, shes felt empowered by Canadians reactions to her public despair almost four years ago. "I feel a lot stronger from that experience," she said. "A lot of that has come from Canadas support of people not throwing me under the bus for not winning a medal at those Olympics. "That was a big eye-opener to know people are still behind you because of your character and not necessarily your result. Thats my definition of success right there." Hollingsworth was informed Sunday by head coach Duff Gibson, the 2006 Olympic mens champion, that she was going to Sochi. She won silver at the 2012 world championship, but felt short of the criteria for automatic nomination to the 2014 Olympic team. Reid and Neilson both met the standard of four top-six World Cup results last season and in the first half of this season. Fairbairn earned Canadas second male spot because he is currently Canadas top-ranked male in the spot. Hollingsworth ranked No. 2 among Canadian women behind Reid to earn the second female berth. "Sure, its not the way I came in every other Olympic year kind of on fire and leading the World Cup standings, but then again at those Olympics Games I didnt achieve what we thought I could," Hoollingsworth explained. Adidas Zx 750 g96719. . "I won an Olympic medal in Torino, but I was expected to win gold. Same thing in Vancouver." Canada had to rank among the top two countries in womens skeleton and in the top three in mens skeleton on Jan. 19 in order to qualify a third sled for both sexes. Defending Olympic mens champion Jon Montgomery was not among the group introduced Wednesday at a Calgary mall theatre. The Russell, Man., slider faces an uphill climb to claim the third mens berth should Canada get it. Montgomery took the 2011-12 season off from racing to build a new sled from scratch, but has yet to adjust to it and his results have suffered. Cassie Hawrysh of Brandon, Man., and Robynne Thompson of Calgary are in the running for the possible third position on the womens team. Reid, a bronze medallist at the 2013 world championship, and the experienced Hollingsworth are Canadas best chances to continue the countrys run of Olympic medals in the sport. Hollingsworth also tried a new sled this season that did not work for her. She didnt qualify at fall selection trials for Canadas World Cup team and opened the season on the secondary Intercontinental Cup circuit. When she had the opportunity to race a recent World Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., Hollingsworth got back on the sled shed been on for a decade and a half and finished eighth. "I was doing everything possible to get on some new equipment and get onto that state of flow on a new sled and it just did not work for me," she explained. "I spent 15 years of my life learning the ins and outs of that sled that its become an appendage, another part of my body. I went to Lake Placid and felt like me again. This is the first time since the world championships in 2012 that Ive been this confident or this comfortable on my sled." For that reason, shes hoping to build momentum in the four World Cup races before the Sochi Games in February. "Im the strongest and the fastest Ive ever been," Hollingsworth said. "Im pushing a sled very, very well and now Im confident in my sled that I have, the old sled and knowing it can still go fast. "Ive got four more opportunities to see where things can go result-wise, but it really doesnt matter. What matters is Sochi." Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
