TORONTO – The Blue Jays wrapped up a nine-game homestand with a 7-4 win over Milwaukee on Wednesday afternoon and afterward, boarded a plane for the long flight to Californias Bay Area. Todd Davis Jersey . It will be in Oakland, on Thursday night, where the club begins a 10-game, pre-All-Star Break road trip which will be a grind, both in terms of miles logged and quality of opponents. After four with the Athletics, the Jays travel down the pacific coast for three with the Angels and then across the southern part of the continent, concluding with three against the Rays in St. Petersburg. Then comes the Midsummer Classic in Minneapolis, where general manager Alex Anthopoulos expects trade discussions will begin to heat up. “We still have a month. A lot can change,” said Anthopoulos. “We started out June 5-0 and obviously we did play well down the stretch. I think you reassess at the All-Star Break and this trip will be part of it. As long as youre in the hunt is probably an important way to look at it. Knock on wood; unless we go on a long streak where we dont win some games and our competition goes on a streak, as long as youre still within reach, then its going to be a battle.” The Blue Jays approach the break in a unique position, legitimate contenders for a playoff spot for the first time in a generation. The lineup is veteran laden, built to win now. Jose Bautista is 33 years old, turning 34 in October. Edwin Encarnacion 31 and so is Adam Lind. Yet, theres understandable hesitancy to part with pieces viewed as part of the future core, including star pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez, whos now toiling at Triple-A Buffalo. Anthopoulos wades into unfamiliar territory but he approaches this deadline no different than those previous, willing to make any trade to improve his ballclub. There are no untouchables. He wont divulge priority areas so as to not create a competitive disadvantage in trade talks. The bullpen and an additional infielder, be it a second or a third baseman (Brett Lawrie can play the other spot), should be points of emphasis. He would be willing to acquire a third baseman. “Lets say theres an all-star calibre player, a great player, there, I think wed be open to doing that,” said Anthopoulos. “That makes the team better. But I dont want to make that a story. Thats not the plan. Were not close to doing that. Were not actively pursuing that. Bretts our third baseman. Hes got the positional flexibility to play all over the place.” The starting rotation has been a pleasant surprise this season. Mark Buehrles 10 wins and 2.50 ERA have led the way. J.A. Happ, with seven more effective innings on Wednesday, has solidified himself after missing the start of the year injured and returning out of the bullpen. Drew Hutchison has run hot and cold but is a promising young pitcher. Marcus Stroman has fit in well and R.A. Dickey is logging innings even though the results have been mixed. The organization believes Sanchez, 23, has turned a corner with the Bisons after struggling for parts of this season with his command. Hes changed his arm slot slightly, staying better on top of the ball as a result. Anthopoulos didnt deny Sanchez could contribute to the Blue Jays down the stretch. “To me, if he can do it again, Im convinced that they got him right on track and hell be ready if we have a need,” said Anthopoulos. HOFFMAN AND PENTECOST SIGN The Blue Jays locked in their two first-round picks from last months amateur draft. General manager Alex Anthopoulos confirmed that Jeff Hoffman (ninth overall), a 21-year-old right-handed pitcher out of East Carolina University and Max Pentecost (11th overall), a 21-year-old catcher who attended Kennesaw State University, signed for their bonus slot. Hoffman cashes in slightly more than $3-million; Pentecost comes in just shy of $2.9-million. Hoffman underwent Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery in May. Its club policy that no pitcher appear in a competitive game until at least one year after the procedure was completed. Hoffman is in Florida, in the early stages of his rehabilitation. Pentecost is in Dunedin, getting back into baseball shape after his college season ended about a month ago. Pentecost is waiting for his passport and when it arrives, hell report to the Blue Jays short season affiliate in Vancouver. Riley Dixon Jersey .28 mph. Logano will start on the front row next to Penske Ford teammate Brad Keselowski, who came in second Friday at 193.099. The Penske drivers swept the top two spots for the second straight race, reversing their qualifying finish in Phoenix a week ago. Von Miller Jersey . -- Jose Bautista never worries about hitting homers during the regular season. http://www.thebroncosstoreonline.com/Youth-Shannon-Sharpe-Broncos-Jerseys/ .Those stars, most notably the top line of James van Riemsdyk, Tyler Bozak and Phil Kessel, struggled against the Montreal Canadiens and must be better as the Leafs look ahead to facing the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers this weekend.HOUSTON - Super Bowl or bust has turned into bust for the Houston Texans. Six games into the season, the year has quickly soured for a supposed championship contender. The Texans have lost four in a row and the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs await. Houstons biggest problem has been turnovers. The Texans are allowing the fewest yards in the NFL (252.Cool, and are gaining the seventh most (395.7). But they have 12 more turnovers than their opponents, second most in the NFL. "Turnovers get you beat in this league and theyre getting us beat on a consistent basis," coach Gary Kubiak said. And the status of quarterback Matt Schaub — battered by criticism — is unclear because of an injury he sustained on a sack in the third quarter Sunday. "Obviously hes very sore and beat up on the leg, ankle — everywhere," Kubiak said. "So obviously well have to see where hes at — probably got a little bit lucky there." Kubiak said Schaub was receiving injections for his injury Monday afternoon. Schaub left after Sundays game before talking to reporters so he could have tests done. Schaub didnt have a turnover Sunday after throwing six interceptions, three of them returned for touchdowns in the past three games. "I thought he stepped up and improved," Kubiak said. "You can always play better, but I thought he was doing things much better." Kubiak said hell prepare both T.J. Yates and Case Keenum this week in case Schaub cant play. Fans have been clamouring for Schaub to be benched in favour of Yates as he struggled. But when Yates got a chance to play Sunday, things didnt go well. He threw two interceptions, the first of which was returned 98 yards for a touchdown. Whoever is at quarterbacck for Houston on Sunday will face a Kansas City defence allowing the NFLs fewest points a game at just 10. Bradley Roby Jersey. 8. The Chiefs also lead the NFL in sacks with 31 this season. "Theyre exceptional and even better at home with the crowd and what theyve got going there," Kubiak said of the Chiefs. "Theyve been pretty special." The Texans have already lost the same number of games as in the entire 2012 regular season, which has some wondering if Kubiaks job is in jeopardy. He said he has plenty of other things to concern himself with and isnt thinking about that. "I think Ive probably been asked that a few times in my eight years," he said. "Ive got a lot of people to worry about, a lot of players, a lot of coaches. I think it would be very selfish if I worried about myself, so no, I do not." Another problem for Houston has been penalties. The Texans had 95 yards of penalties on Sunday and have 46 penalties for 459 yards this season. Kubiak is trying everything to get the Texans to clean up their play. "Youve just got to emphasize in every possible way what you can on the practice field, in the meeting room," he said. "Thats about all you can do. Just paying as much attention to it as you possibly can." Also injured in Sundays loss to St. Louis was safety Danieal Manning, who Kubiak said has a "significant knee injury." He said they are still evaluating the injury. Shiloh Keo will fill in for Manning. Keo was a fifth-round draft pick in 2011 who spent time on the practice squad that year before appearing in 14 games last season. Kubiak also said cornerback Brandon Harris could move to safety if they need more help. ___ AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
