The latest step Doug Baldwin had dealt

By Rose

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider checked off the top Patrick Sharp Kids Jersey item on his to-do list Tuesday, inking wide receiver Doug Baldwin to a four-year contract extension. Baldwin had a monster season in 2015, catching 78 balls for 1,069 yards and a league-high-tying 14 touchdowns. According to ESPN Stats & Information's charting, Baldwin became the only wide receiver since targets were first tracked (1992) to post a 1,000-yard season and catch at least 80 percent of his targets. He did most of his damage (1,007 yards) from the slot. Only three other wide http://www.officialblackhawkssite.com/Womens_Youth_Kris_Versteeg_Jersey receivers in the past five years have reached the 1,000-yard mark when lined up in the slot: Wes Welker, Randall Cobb and Victor Cruz. Baldwin has had a fascinating journey to reach this point in his career. He butted heads with Jim Harbaugh while at Stanford and nearly left school before his junior year. He's grown frustrated at times with how the Seahawks' offense has operated and the lack of opportunities for wide receivers. But, by all accounts, the arrow is pointing up. The Seahawks finished Matt Beleskey Red Jersey last season with the most efficient offense in the NFL, according to Football Outsiders' DVOA rankings. Russell Wilson is only 27 years old, and the team returns its top four pass-catchers from 2015. Overall, Wilson, Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, Jermaine Kearse and Thomas Rawls are all signed through 2018 The Seahawks believe they have a great opportunity to reach the Super Bowl for the third time in four seasons, and with Baldwin signed through 2020, they will now have one fewer issue to deal with when training camp begins next month. After last year's divisional round loss http://www.baseballofficialshop.com/jeff-samardzija-jersey-c-3_534_560.html to the Carolina Panthers, cornerback Richard Sherman maintained that the team's window for another Super Bowl was wide open. Keeping Baldwin is another step towards keeping the core intact.

David Ortiz will miss the Home Run Derby

By Rose

If David Ortiz wanted to compete Canadiens Bob Gainey Jerseyin one last Home Run Derby on the eve of the All-Star Game, the Boston Red Sox wouldn't stand in his way. All things considered, though, the Sox are thrilled the retiring slugger wants to sit it out. Ortiz hasn't swung http://www.authenticoilersshop.com/authentic-21-andrew-ference-jersey.html for the fences in the annual home run-hitting contest since 2010, when he won it in Anaheim, California. Entering play Wednesday, he led the majors with a 1.108 OPS and the Red Sox with 18 homers. His 521 career homers are the third most among active players, trailing only Alex Rodriguez (695)and Albert Pujols (574). But while Ortiz would be a big attraction in the Derby, the Red Sox would prefer that he kick up his aching feet as much as possible. The 40-year-old designated hitter has started 66 of 78 games despite dealing with pain and soreness in his heels and ankles. In particular, Ortiz's feet flare up when he takes two bases at a time, and he leads the majors with 31 doubles. "The one thing is, we've charted the total bases to date and particularly it's the doubles, the two-base running Blue Jackets David Savard Youth Jersey that really taxes him," Farrell said. "It's usually that fourth or fifth at-bat where it's starting to rear its head a little bit, so we try to get him off his feet when we can at that point. We know this will be an ongoing maintenance situation." "If it turns out he doesn't participate in the Home Run Derby, I think that's probably music to all of our ears," manager John Farrell said Wednesday after Ortiz told WEEI radio that he doesn't intend Taylor Hall Limited Jersey to take part in the contest. "But at the same time, he's earned the right to enjoy and experience that opportunity in San Diego as much as anyone."

Jose Altuve, a novelty act has evolved into an MVP candidate

By Rose

At first, Jose Altuve was a novelty act, a little guy who could spray http://www.redskinsfootballproshop.com/Robert-Griffin-Iii-Jersey line drives all over the place and steal some bases.Then he became an All-Star. Then he got better. Then he became an MVP candidate Altuve went 4-for-5 in the Houston Astros' 10-4 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday. It was his second four-hit game in five days. He has reached base in 32 straight games, and with the Astros off Thursday, he finishes June with a .420 average and 42 hits in 26 games. He's hitting .357/.432/.572, has 39 extra-base hits and has 21 stolen bases in 24 attempts. Entering Wednesday, he trailed only Mike Trout in WAR, 4.7 to 4.4. Considering Trout's Angels are well below .500, while the Astros have won 10 of their past 11 to climb back to within a half-game of a wild-card spot, that makes Altuve a leading MVP candidate in the American League and maybe the leading MVP candidate. Altuve's improvement he has already walked more times than he did in all of 2015, and he is two home runs shy of last year's career high of 15 has been documented http://www.texansonlineofficialstore.com/Arian-Foster-Jersey. He has been more patient, and that has led not just to more walks but also to his swinging at more pitches that he can drive with power. He has such quick hands that he is able to make contact even while chasing pitches out of the zone. He paid the price for that aggressiveness, however, by hitting just .217 on pitches out of the zone last year. His chase rate in 2016 has declined from 34.1 percent each of the past two seasons to 27.6 percent this season. These aren't necessarily the 10 best seasons. Joe Morgan's 1972 and 1973 seasons would rank fourth and fifth on the list behind Craig Biggio's 1997. Morgan, of course, is comparable to Altuve in one fashion: He stood 5-foot-7, which gives him a couple inches on Altuve. Morgan put up big numbers for his era, especially compared to other second basemen. He led the majors in OBP and OPS in both of his MVP seasons. He wasn't just a good hitter for a second baseman; he was the best hitter at any position while swiping 60-plus bags and playing good defense. There's a Chuck Knoblauch season from 1996 that I didn't include http://www.nflraidersofficialonline.com/RAIDERS-MARIO-EDWARDS-JR-JERSEY here that was valued at 8.6 WAR. He was a very similar player to Altuve: short, quick stroke, surprising power for his size, good speed and high energy. It seems to me that second basemen are often underrated in the excitement factor. Maybe they don't play the glamour position of shortstop, so their athleticism gets overlooked. They run more than third basemen and first basemen and most corner outfielders while playing a demanding defensive position. They make turning a double play look easy when it isn't. Yet since 1969, a first baseman has won MVP honors 19 times and a second baseman just five times. What impresses Luke Kuechly elite Jersey me is how these top guys were such amazing all-around players, and Altuve fits right in. He contributes in all areas, and a big bonus this year is that he has cut down on his baserunning mistakes.

Indians had shut out Braves to continue winning streak

By Rose

Cleveland swept its fourth straight series to extend http://www.nfleaglesofficial.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_KIKO_ALONSO_JERSEY.html the majors' longest winning streak this season. The Indians began the day leading second-place Kansas City by six games in the AL Central. Danny Salazar threw seven innings, Lonnie Chisenhall hit his second homer of the series and the Cleveland Indians stretched their winning streak to 12 games by beating the Atlanta Braves 3-0 on Wednesday night. The Indians need one more win to match the longest winning streaks in franchise http://www.officialauthenticlions.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_DARIUS_SLAY_JERSEY.html history. They won 13 straight in 1942 and 1951. They had another 12-game streak in 1922. The Indians' first glimpse of De La Cruz came a day before the game. Manager Terry Francona said he saw the right-hander after De La Cruz, carrying Braves luggage, checked in at the Indians' hotel on Wednesday night. Asked if he knew anything about De La Cruz, Francona said "Well, I rode the elevator with him last night. I was going to my room and I saw this kid with a bag. I said, `You must be De La Cruz.' He laughed. We haven't seen him pitch. But I've shaken his hand." Salazar (10-3) was dominant, allowing Jordan Phillips Womens Jersey five hits with no walks and eight strikeouts. He lowered the AL's second-best ERA to 2.22 and won his sixth straight start. Cody Allen gave up a leadoff single to Nick Markakis in the ninth and walked Erick Aybar with two outs before ending the game on Emilio Bonifacio's grounder to second for his 16th save. Braves right-hander Joel De La Cruz (0-1), recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett for his major league debut, allowed three runs in six innings. De La Cruz opened with four scoreless innings before allowing the two-run single to Kipnis with two outs in the fifth. De La Cruz found more two-out trouble in the sixth when Chisenhall's high homer landed midway up the lower level of the seats in right. The Braves signed De La Cruz, 27, as a minor league free agent after he played in the Yankees' organization in 2015. Right-hander Brian Shaw struck http://www.officialnfltitansprostore.com/Marcus-Mariota-Jersey out Freddie Freeman to close the eighth with runners on first and second. It was the third strikeout of the game for Freeman, who shattered his bat as he slammed it to the ground in frustration. Freeman also bounced his helmet off ground. Atlanta's Jace Peterson had two doubles and has a career-best 10-game hitting streak.

Who can more than Sam Presti about the great vision on a draft?

By Rose

Sam Presti's acting is the best general manager in today's NBA draft vision. Rockets general manager daryl morey said good at taobao in the draft, but morey is basically in the second round of tinkering Jaguars Denard Robinson Jersey around the edges, Presti often choose the high quality players in the first round, apparently more show his power. The Spurs series product were remarkable, Presti worked in SAN Antonio for seven years, from popovich and R.C. buford, learned a lot. As general manager after the thunder, Presti after durant, westbrook and harden, the barca, Adams and other star players, he single-handedly makes thunder league super giants. , however, the Presti has always been people think smart, also has been criticized, his barca contract with Iraq in 2012, but would not satisfy harden's appetite, eventually the harden traded to the rockets. Give up harden Presti's career, general manager of one of the most regret things. Selected three little thunder, who can than draft vision? "Because I don't think Presti has built this thunder team now and get enough praise. He adopted league team mentality, most managers envisaged by budget Darrelle Revis Authentic Jersey deal, draft, and let the young people at the top and the team mixed veterans will just inherited a bad team together." Mike brown said of colleagues who worked together in the SAN Antonio Spurs. Presti's eye is really very good, he choose to negotiators for the thunder high quality young players, let the team from a buoyant thoroughly remould oneself become a good team... Presti, in a supersonic in his first year with the second sign the pick Kevin durant. This choice is simpler, because Kevin durant was always, as two seats before locking and oden early. In 2007, durant joined supersonic (thunder). In 2008, the Presti on the fourth line to select less, line to pick the barca, 24, fully shows the Presti of the eye. Westbrook less now is one of the best point guard in the league, barca in Iraq has become a good big man. In 2009, the Presti with no sign, chose harden, this is the draft in the history of a shrewd move. In 2011 first-round pick 21, Presti for the thunder to reggie Jackson. Draft in 2013 first-round pick 12 selected Steven Adams, the first round of the no. 26 Andrew Robertson. Presti of first-round pick players yield is very high. Had a great eye is also praised the draft, the rockets general manager daryl morey is mainly embodied in the second-round pick many bright spots, but the first show is often wasted. Presti, choose the first round of the show, by contrast, a foothold in the NBA, even become a star player, this ability is difficult compared to other team general manager. Why the Presti's look so prospective? Is really all Presti one's inspection? The answer is not the case. Presti has created an excellent team, team vice President and general manager assistant Troy weaver's highly recommended, so the Presti she was picked http://www.nflbillsofficialshop.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_ANDRE_REED_JERSEY.html out the Westbrook. Basketball, director of research and analysis about the data gold, thunder signed morrow. The thunder's management includes all kinds of people, such as Presti, trust and respect to them, and the members are to its respect. "You need to obey leadership, Sam is a leader, we have to obey his leadership." Team chief operating officer Paul doc rivers said. Weaver said, "look at Sam what brings to this team, I don't think he's got enough praise. Everyone here is outstanding, every time I came into the office, you will get on very well with these people." Presti for the thunder's contribution, not only is to help the team get some big-name players, but under his leadership, the team set up a better team culture. All of these help the thunder from a buoyant gradually became league super giants. "Bao yi barca harden, his guts of remorse, Presti has been hailed as a draft and the man of god, but he also has been questioned, it is the summer of 2012, Presti, choose the priority and the barca contract, didn't meet the contract requirements, harden left his team in order to prevent harden become a free agent, he will harden before 2012-13 season start traded to the rockets. Presti after finish the deal, once declared http://www.nflbillsofficialauthentic.com/Nike-Lesean-Mccoy-Jersey.html himself doing the right thing. "I feel very strange thing happened in professional sports, is that people always stubbornly try to repeat once. I don't think we are. We try to analyse the question from another Angle. There is no doubt that harden is a talented player, negligence or Martin, lamb and so many picks. However, I think our team has done a good job, in the next, they will have different types of players combined into a whole, and find a place for them." Presti said. And if in the Presti of the position, many people will choose to give up harden, confirmed the barca. Thunder is a small market team, Presti must control the payroll. The thunder outside have Kevin durant and Russell westbrook scored two points, then inside general of the barca effect seems to be more important than harden. So he set the priority to renew the barca's strategy was not wrong. The crux of the problem is that the thunder if meet the requirements of harden, then the thunder will start to pay the luxury tax, and the team's salary cap space so the lock. This is thunder owner Clayton Bennett - don't want to see. So, the Presti must choose. As you can see Presti, after leaving the SAN Antonio Spurs, no doubt, is also a winner, no prostitute Spurs system rests!

The biggest victory of Rex Ryan, his father?

By Rose

It wasn't the biggest victory of his New York Jets' coaching career, not even close, but it was one of the most emotional. It was Dec. 14, 2014, and Rex Ryan had just won an ugly http://www.officialmlbgiantshop.com/authentic-35-brandon-crawford-jersey.html game against the woeful Tennessee Titans. It was the Jets' third win in a four-win season, and everybody knew he'd be fired in a couple of weeks. Ryan, still beloved by his players despite the miserable year, was presented the game ball in the locker room. It wasn't his for long. A few minutes later, he walked into a private hallway -- away from cameras and reporters -- and approached a sickly old man in a wheelchair. Ryan leaned over and gave the ball to his father, Buddy, completing the best handoff of the Jets' season. Family members watched with sad smiles. Rex didn't have much time left in his dream job, and Buddy, his body filled with cancer, didn't have much time left, period. There was an air of finality in the room. "I've got a lot of these," Buddy said of the game ball, summoning a blast of his legendary bluster. Rex laughed through the tears. "I learned Nelson Cruz Mariners Elite Jersey more football from him than anyone else," he once said of his father, who died Tuesday at the age of 85 He often hailed his dad as the greatest defensive coach in NFL history, noting how he became the first coordinator to be carried off the field by his players after a Super Bowl victory. That, of course, occurred with the iconic 1985 Chicago Bears, who turned Buddy's vaunted 46 defense into a revolutionary scheme. It was an incredible team and an incredible season, but what moved Rex more than anything was how Buddy was hoisted on the shoulders of his players. Rex inherited the same trait -- the desire to be loved by his players -- and it might have contributed to his demise with the Jets. He so badly wanted to win a Super Bowl in New York, in part because of his father's connection to the team On the day he was introduced http://www.officialpadresshop.com/authentic-justin-upton-jersey.html as head coach in 2009, Rex received the gift of a lifetime. The equipment staff dug up Buddy's old warmup jacket from the '68 season, and it was presented to Rex. On the inside, it had "RYAN" written in black marker. Rex was moved by the gesture. A few months later, Buddy showed up for minicamp, walked into the media room and did his thing, entertaining reporters with his bravado. "I think you can near guarantee yourself a Super Bowl if they stay healthy," Buddy said boldly, unwittingly turning up the heat on his son. Rex was a young defensive coordinator for Morehead State in 1993, when his father earned http://www.officialpiratesstore.com/authentic-25-gregory-polanco-jersey.html a place in NFL infamy by punching fellow Houston Oilers assistant Kevin Gilbride in the face during a game against the Jets. Rex was horrified as he watched on TV. Years later he made light of the incident, saying he feared he and Rob would be blackballed from the NFL because of Buddy's actions on the sideline.

The influential Buddy Ryan has how Influential NFL's life

By Rose

Ryan,Former NFL head coach and influential defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan died Tuesday. He was 85. who was outspoken http://www.officialauthenticcowboysstore.com/Nike-Dan-Bailey-Jersey.html and coached in the NFL for 26 seasons, was known for building some of football's top defenses with a relentlessness that focused on creating havoc on the field. "He was many things to many people -- outstanding coach, mentor, fierce competitor, father figure, faithful friend and the list goes on," his son, Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan, said Tuesday in a statement. "But to me and my brothers Rob and Jim, he was so much more. He was everything you want in a dad -- tough when he had to be, compassionate when you didn't necessarily expect it, and a loving teacher and confidant who cherished his family. He truly was our hero." James Solano, Buddy Ryan's agent, said he died in Kentucky, where he lived on a ranch http://www.raidersnflofficialonline.com/Nike-Charles-Woodson-Jersey.html in Shelbyville, but did not give a cause. Funeral services are scheduled for Friday in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Buddy Ryan's first job as a defensive coordinator came in 1976 with the Minnesota Vikings under Bud Grant, like Ewbank a Hall of Fame coach. He spent two years there before moving to the rival Bears, where he concocted the 46 defense that overwhelmed the league with its aggressiveness and unpredictability. With the Bears, Ryan's renown skyrocketed. The 46 defense was founded on sending more blitzing players than an offense could block. And in 1984, the Bears tallied 72 sacks, a record that still stands. The '85 Bears capped their Super Bowl title with seven sacks. Ryan's defenders, featuring Corbin Bryant Nike Jersey such Hall of Famers as linebacker Mike Singletary and ends Dan Hampton and Richard Dent, came from all angles and were nearly impossible to budge on the ground -- not that teams had more success in the air, either. "Some say the 46 is just an eight-man front," said Buddy Ryan, who named the scheme after safety Doug Plank, who wore that number. "That's like saying Marilyn Monroe is just a girl." "Buddy Ryan was arguably one of the greatest defensive masterminds in NFL history and forever left his mark on the Eagles organization and the city of Philadelphia," Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said in a statement. Arizona hired Ryan as head coach in 1994, and the Cardinals went 12-20 in his two years there. He never coached again, letting twin sons Rex and Rob carry on the family legacy. "While today is a tough day for all of us in the Ryan family, we are consoled in knowing how much dad was loved by so many and the love he gave back in return. Though we will miss him dearly, we take comfort in knowing that his memory will live on through all of us." Buddy Ryan, suffering from the aftermath of a devastating stroke and battling cancer and confined to a wheelchair, attended a Bills game last season. He began his 33-year coaching career in 1961 as a defensive line coach with the University of Buffalo. "Buddy Ryan was the architect Authentic Jonathan Stewart Jersey of the greatest defense our league has seen," Bears chairman George H. McCaskey said in a statement. "He was brilliant when it came to the X's and O's of the game, but what made him special was his ability to create an unwavering confidence in the players he coached.

The hottest team Indians is enjoying longest winning streak

By Rose

The Indians are big news as the hottest team in the majors.Carlos Santana hit David Desharnais Youth Jersey a tie-breaking single in Cleveland's three-run ninth inning, Kluber allowed only three hits in eight innings and the Indians beat the Atlanta Braves 5-3 on Tuesday night for their 11th straight win. The winning streak is the longest in the majors this season and also Cleveland's longest since it won 11 straight from May 23-June 4, 1982.Kluber didn't sound impressed. "No one is really talking about the winning streak," he said. "We realize Dave Cash Kids Jersey we are playing well right now. We're just trying to keep that going. Ultimately, an 11-game game winning streak doesn't mean much if you don't continue to build the momentum that you have." The Indians won 12 straight in 1922. The longest streaks in franchise history were 13 games in 1942 and 1951. Kluber (8-7) didn't allow a hit through five innings. He allowed two runs on three hits and one walk with seven strikeouts. Cleveland increased Mikael Granlund Limited Jersey its AL Central lead to six games over second-place Kansas City, which lost 8-4 to St. Louis. Arodys Vizcaino (1-3) walked Tyler Naquin to open the ninth and then walked Juan Uribe on four pitches. With pinch-runner Rajai Davis at first base, and one out, Santana's single to right field drove in Naquin. Braves shortstop Erick Aybar mishandled Francisco Lindor's grounder for an error, allowing Davis to score. Jose Ramirez added a run-scoring single up the middle. Atlanta's Jace Peterson hit a homer off Cody Allen in the ninth, giving him a nine-game hitting streak. Freddie Freeman added a triple off the center-field http://www.bearsfootballprostore.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_DICK_BUTKUS_JERSEY.html wall before Allen ended the game on Nick Markakis' fly ball to left field for his 15th save. "Cody didn't get rattled, and he got the out," Indians manager Terry Francona said.

A massive spot!the prime-time debut of Lucas Giolito

By Rose

It’s a massive spot, but the Washington Nationals' equally Ryan Quigley Jets Jersey massive right-hander -- who stands 6-foot-6, weighs 255 pounds, and is considered the No. 1 pitching prospect in baseball -- is just the guy for the job. When Lucas Giolito makes his big-league debut on Tuesday night, he’ll do so against Matt Harvey and the New York Mets in the middle of a key three-game series between NL East rivals And it has absolutely nothing to do with his tantalizingly http://www.officialjetsnflproshop.com/AUTHENTIC+TOMMY+BOHANON+JERSEY talented arm. Well, maybe it has a little bit to do with the cannon. But mostly it’s about the cool. "He’s a confident kid," GM Mike Rizzo said prior to Monday’s series opener in D.C. "I think he’ll handle the pressure of his major league debut against a really good team like the New York Mets in stride and give us a chance to win the baseball game." Despite what Giolito’s done on the bump, it’s how he’s acted on flat ground that’s been most impressive. The son of actress Lindsay Frost and nephew of “Twin Peaks” creator Mark Frost, the 21-year-old righty is clearly comfortable in front of the bright lights and hot mics. At his first big-league spring training this past February, Giolito wowed reporters with his clubhouse composure. Despite having thrown just 47 innings above Class-A, he vowed that his goal was to make his major league debut this season. Four months later, after going 5-3 with a 3.17 ERA in 14 starts at Double-A Harrisburg, that’s exactly what’s happening. Just call him Cool Hand Lucas. Who cares if he’s bypassing Mike Wallace Authentic Jersey Triple-A completely? Certainly not the fearless Giolito, whose earliest memory is splashing water into a bush that contained a beehive and getting stung 20 times. "Amazingly," he said back in spring training, "I’m not afraid of bees." Being under the microscope is nothing new for Giolito. A stud prospect coming out of Harvard-Westlake High School in Los Angeles, his stock dropped because of an elbow injury during his senior year. Giolito’s stuff was so good that even though the Nationals knew he was planning on having Tommy John surgery shortly after the 2012 draft, they still took him with the 16th overall pick. Had it not been for the elbow issues, he no doubt would’ve gone earlier -- like 15 spots earlier, give or take. When it comes to teams rolling http://www.officialauthenticvikingsstore.com/AUTHENTIC+JEFF+LOCKE+JERSEY the dice on prep pitchers with preexisting injuries, Giolito was pretty much the test case. It’s a gig that comes with plenty of pressure, but he hasn’t let it get to him.

Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to leave the team's current road trip

By Rose

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershawhad his second-worst outing of the season Sunday night against the Pirates, giving http://www.nflcardinalsofficialstore.com/AUTHENTIC+DJ+HUMPHRIES+JERSEY up four runs on nine hits. A day later, as the Dodgers finished a four-game series at Pittsburgh, he was being examined for what was then labeled as minor back discomfort. Manager Dave Roberts said he remains hopeful that Kershaw can make his next scheduled start Friday at home against the Colorado Rockies. The Dodgers begin a three-game set against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday. Kershaw has made at least 30 starts in six of the past seven seasons. Kershaw's ailment Demarcus Lawrence Cowboys Jersey is the latest in a string of back issues plaguing Dodgers players. Carl Crawford and Scott Van Slyke went on the disabled list early in the season with back problems, and rookie Trayce Thompson has dealt with a sore lower back the past three weeks that has slowed his hot start. Injuries to starting pitchers as a whole have affected the Dodgers this year. It started in spring training, when Brett Anderson went down with a back problem that required surgery. Mike Bolsinger went down with an oblique strain. By that time, pitching prospect Frankie Montas was out after rib resection surgery. In May, Alex Wood was placed on the DL with an elbow injury. "He's not pitching here in Milwaukee, so as we looked at his Friday start, to get him a couple of days back home makes sense," Roberts said. "He will consult with the doctors when he gets back to L.A., and we'll see where it goes from there." Kershaw, a three-time Cy Young Award winner, was not in the Dodgers' clubhouse http://www.falconsnflofficialproshop.com/AUTHENTIC+TYSON+JACKSON+JERSEY and was thus unavailable for comment during the media's open access time Tuesday, although he was expected to be at Miller Park for the game against the Brewers. Dodgers back specialist Robert Watkins will oversee the examination on Kershaw. "With who Kershaw is, and with any of our players, you want to be prudent," Roberts said. "It was the training staff and him conferring and feeling like returning to Los Angeles was the best thing for Clayton." Roberts originally told ESPN.com on Monday that the back issue Richard Rodgers Packers Jersey had been an "off-and-on issue" for Kershaw. It obviously had not bothered him to the extent it did after his start against the Pirates, although he did do at least part of his post-start workout Monday morning. "It's been a few weeks where it has been in and out and it has felt good, then it started barking a little bit," Roberts said. "Right now we want to get some answers." That is why Roberts stared straight ahead and did not blink when asked what the team would do Friday if Kershaw is unavailable. Said Roberts, "We're not thinking about that."
