ST. Johan Franzen Red Wings Jersey . LOUIS -- Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright says his elbow injury is not serious. He could miss a start to allow the tendinitis to calm down. "Im OK, I really am," Wainwright said Friday. "I know that in this business when the word elbow gets thrown around people think the worst, but in actuality and in all honest to goodness truth, the only reason we did an MRI at all was to see how to treat it better, to see exactly which spot was dinged up." General manager John Mozeliak said the team would have a better idea of its next move after Wainwright plays catch on Saturday. The right-hander was a 19-game winner last year and won 20 games in 2010. "I think the best way to think about this now is its a long season and certainly you dont want to put the season in jeopardy for one start," Mozeliak said. "I certainly know where were leaning, but Id like to see how he responds tomorrow." Wainwright is tied for the National League lead in wins at 9-3 with a 2.15 ERA. He had an injection on Wednesday after an MRI exam pinpointed the trouble area in the back of his elbow. "If I have to miss a start once every three years without going on the DL, I think thats an OK thing," Wainwright said. "I could pitch through this, theres no doubt, without seeing doctors, without getting a shot. Thats not the smart play, lets get this treated, lets get this knocked out." Wainwright, who missed the 2011 season after undergoing elbow reconstruction surgery, said the sole reason for the MRI was to aid in rehab efforts. Wainwright sought to calm fans, saying the elbow was fine and the tendon was "thick as an oak tree and strong as can be." Both the team and pitcher kept open the possibility Wainwright could stay on his turn and pitch Monday against the Mets, but all agreed a little rest would be beneficial. Wainwright was second in the NL with 100 1-3 innings. He said the elbow began bothering him the last two starts. Chris Chelios Red Wings Jersey Authentic . Some members of the U.S. Congress arent so sure. They say Russia isnt doing enough to assure that athletes will be protected at the Feb. 7-23 games, happening not far from an Islamic insurgency that Russias huge security apparatus has struggled for two decades to quell. Russia may run greater risks in towns outside the tightly controlled Olympic zone. Suicide bombs last month a few hundred kilometres (miles) away have increased concerns, and an Islamic warlord has urged his followers to attack the Sochi Olympics, Russian President Vladimir Putins pet project.

The star receiver certainly isnt celebrating it with the Texans mired in a franchise-record 13-game skid. http://www.redwingshockeyauthentic.com/terry-sawchuk-jersey/ . "He came up to me and said, I want to train," said Toronto coach Ryan Nelsen. The 26-year-old midfielder is expected to play Saturday night when Toronto hosts D.C. United, returning to his Major League Soccer squad with mixed feelings about the Americans World Cup run -- sad that it ended when it did but proud of his teams performance. Its looking like a rough season ahead for the Calgary Flames and, not surprisingly for a team in need of a full rebuild, there arent a lot of great fantasy options on the roster. Top Picks: LW Mike Cammalleri, D Dennis Wideman Among the unprovens in Calgary, veteran LW Michael Cammalleri stands out, a two-time 80-point scorer, but 2008-2009 was the last time he finished with more than 50 points in a season. Hes had trouble staying healthy, missing at least 15 games in three straight seasons, prior to playing 44 of 48 games in 2013. Those considerations, along with the potential for a minus playing big minutes in Calgary, makes Cammalleri a No. 4 fantasy left winger. Since 2009-2010, Dennis Wideman is minus-50, tied for third-worst among defencemen, which tends to undermine the 138 points hes scored in that same time, ranking 20th. He played 25 minutes per game last season, so hell get plenty of opportunities, but lots of ice time on a bad team only increases the risk of a minus rating. Factored together, that leaves Wideman as a No. 4, or even No. 5 fantasy defenceman in any formats that count plus-minus, whereas hes a viable No. 2 or No. 3 for straight points. Value Plays: Curtis Glencross, Lee Stempniak, Jiri Hudler, Mark Giordano There are a few Flames players that have modest value in deep leagues, but lack the upside to be considered otherwise. Curtis Glencross, for example, has scored 65 goals over the last three seasons, tied with Loui Eriksson and Taylor Hall for 44th in the league, but his shooting percentage in that time (18.5%) is best among all players with at least 50 goals. Never mind improving on that rate, how much longer can he keep up that lofty percentage? RW Lee Stempniak works the other end of the spectrum, generating lots of shots, but with a lower shooting percentage (9.5% over the last three seasons). Stempniak scored a career-best 0.68 points per game last season, but his limited upside most likely makes him a late-round or waiver wire selection. Winger Jiri Hudler played a career-high 17:10 per game last season and is a two-time 20-goal scorer, but his lack of peripheral stats, and minus risk, makes him less appealing in fantasy circles. For the last three seasons, D Mark Giordano has played more than 23 minutes per game, but his point production has fallen off after he scored 43 points in 2010-2011. Mike Green Red Wings Jersey. If Giordano is going to be part of the long-term plan in Calgary, maybe he gets a little more time on the PP and boosts his scoring numbers, which would make him deserving of consideration in deep leagues. Sleepers/Breakthrough: Karri Ramo, Mikael Backlund, T.J. Brodie Banking on a 27-year-old goalie based on his KHL track record seems like a high-risk approach, but it could pay off for fantasy owners. If youre willing to take the plunge on Karri Ramo, and his .895 save percentage in 48 career NHL games, you could get a goaltender that starts 65 games and has a .926 save percentage over the last three seasons in the KHL. If he somehow managed to be an average starter, that would figure to be an opportunity to get significant value. The centre crop is so thin in Calgary that Mikael Backlund, a 24-year-old who has never scored more than 25 points in an NHL season, is effectively their No. 1 option. He did have 13 points in his last 25 games last season, so there is some reasonable upside projecting that out over a full season, but really only for the deepest of leagues. Same goes for D T.J. Brodie, a 23-year-old who has 28 points in 104 career games. For the final month last season, he played more than 23 minutes per game, contributing six points in 15 games. If he continues at that rate, he would have fantasy appeal because of upside due to a young player taking on a bigger role. Rookies: Sven Baertschi While sixth overall pick Sean Monahan will have some chance to contribute, hes not likely to have a fantasy impact at centre, a position deep enough to have many more proven options available. On the other hand, LW Sven Baertschi has displayed the skill to be a scorer, putting up 13 points in 25 NHL games over the past two seasons, along with 26 points in 32 AHL games as a rookie pro last year. Baertschi finished last season with nine points in the last 10 games, playing 15:48 per game in April and if hes going to get quality ice time, his offensive potential will make him worthwhile in deep leagues.
