NFL is back

NFL is back on. The training camps are for the Giants will be at the The New Meadowlands ant the Jets at the UAlbany. I don’t know how the owners and players agreed on the contract but it really doesn’t matter all that matter’s is we get to see Football and the team that we all love. Now thier is free agency so lets see if you geet the player that you like on the team that you love.

After months trying to aggree on what they all should get in a year they were asking for 9 billion a year they made that a deal then they said ” Football is back”. Rodger Goodwell (NFL Cominisioner) DeMaurice Smith (NFL Player Association) they both signed an ageement for a 10 year deal to end the lock out that began in March.

Lastly thier are no more waiting and hoping that we see Football this year. Also that we can now sit back and watch the sport that some people enjoy. I think that the players should have gotten a better deal cause while they are out thier gettin knocked really hard and taking the pain while hte owners are just watching they should get more money and longer years. But hey that thier job and thats why the get paid. If they agree I dont have to agree.

Derek Jeter 3,000 hit

Derek Jeter was Drafted in the first round by the New York Yankees but other teams didn’t think that he was going to be as good he is now. Derek Jeter is Hall of Famer and would always be rembered for life. Derek Jeter hit his 3,oooth hit with a homer and the guy that caught the ball gave the ball back to Derek Jeter for free. If that was me i would of took the money that wasn’t a smart move by that guy he could of been rich. But seasonal tickets is preety good.

Roy Owsawlt

Roy Oswalt rushed to return the first time his balky back put him on the disabled list.

Oswalt

He won’t make that mistake again.

He can’t — a mild bulging disk means it’s unlikely he’ll return before August.

The Philadelphia Phillies right-hander, who shot down retirement rumors Saturday, has battled back trouble all season. He went on the DL in May because of what the Phillies called lower-back inflammation. He lasted just two innings in the Phillies’ 12-2 loss to St. Louis on Thursday night and was put on the disabled list the next day.

The three-time All-Star is 4-6 with a 3.79 ERA in 13 games and 1-5 with a 4.06 ERA over his last eight starts.

“I was just worried because (the pain) was going a little bit farther down my leg,” he said. “The symptoms I had in the past, it’s always just been in my hip. For the last two or three weeks, it’s gotten lower and lower down toward the knee.”

Oswalt believes he can return for the final two months of the season.

Team doctor Michael Ciccotti says Oswalt, who does not have a herniated disc, will get a second opinion from a specialist in Dallas and then receive a treatment plan that could include rest, medication or injections.

Oswalt says doctors told him he eventually will need back surgery, but he’s hoping to put it off. The disk has kept Oswalt from working out like he normally does, and he spent more time in his last two starts worrying about blowing out his back than his pitching.

“I was trying to get through each start,” he said. “Instead of going to the seventh, eighth inning, I was trying to make it through five or six innings.”

When Oswalt was finished after two in St. Louis, he knew there was serious trouble.

Oswalt and Joe Blanton (elbow) are both on the DL, leaving Vance Worley and Kyle Kendrick to fill their spots in the rotation. Thanks to Cole Hamels, Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee, the Phillies have the best record in baseball entering Saturday’s game against Oakland, leaving little reason for Oswalt to hurry back to the mound.

“I’m not going to come back and try and pitch through it like I did last time,” he said. “I’m not helping the team too much.”

Ciccotti gave updates on a few other injured Phillies.

At least CC sabathia was honest

At least CC Sabathia was honest.

The big left-hander tossed eight stingy innings against the Colorado Rockies on Saturday, leading the New York Yankees to a resounding 8-3 victory and becoming the first big league pitcher to reach the 10-win plateau this season.I wish I could say it meant something, but it don’t,” he said with a shrug and a sly smile. “We’re here to win championships. That’s what we’re trying to do.”

The way he’s been pitching, the Yankees should have a pretty good chance.

A dozen pitchers began the day with nine wins, but Sabathia (10-4) won the race to double digits. The former Cy Young winner allowed one run while striking out nine, improving to 19-7 all-time in interleague play. That win total makes him baseball’s active leader.

Sabathia has lost once since May 14, pitching into the seventh inning every time.

“He’s the same guy every day,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “He just goes out and pitches and wins ballgames. That’s what he does.”

Sabathia threw just 103 pitches Saturday, but Girardi decided against letting him finish the game. Buddy Carlyle promptly gave up Ty Wigginton’s two-run homer in the ninth.

Seth Smith drove in the Rockies’ only other run with a pinch-hit single in the eighth.

“CC shone tonight. He was good,” the Rockies’ Jason Giambi said. “He had a great tilt on his slider. I had a hard time picking up betweeen slider and fastball. He hid the ball really well, and he was lights-out tonight, and that’s what he normally does. He’s their big ace.”

Alex Rodriguez drove in three runs, Mark Teixeira added a two-run homer for New York, Jorge Posada had three hits and the Yankees pounded out 15 total. Everybody in their starting lineup had a hit off starter Aaron Cook (0-3) except Robinson Cano, who went 0-for-4 for the second straight game.

“Those guys scoring runs makes it smooth,” Sabathia said. “I felt like I needed to put my foot on the gas today, go out and be aggressive and throw strikes.”

The Yankees lost the series opener 4-2 on Friday night, and together with a series sweep four years ago at Coors Field, had lost four straight to the Rockies.

They didn’t waste any time jumping ahead Saturday.

Brett Gardner laid down a perfect bunt toward third on Cook’s first pitch and Wigginton didn’t even bother making a throw to first. Gardner swiped second base with ease, then sped home when Curtis Granderson dribbled a single through the right side of the infield.

Outfielder Eric Young bobbled the ball and Granderson wound up at second. The error proved costly moments later when A-Rod’s base hit gave New York a 2-0 lead.

Granderson and Rodriguez helped add three more runs in the third.

New York’s hot-hitting outfielder started off with a blooper to left, and Teixeira followed with a rocket to center that put runners on second and third. A-Rod then went opposite field for a two-run double, and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Nick Swisher, sliding headfirst to beat the throw from Ryan Spilborghs at the plate.

“For a right-handed thrower, that’s a tough throw,” Rodriguez said, “so I took a chance.”

Back-to-back doubles by Swisher and Posada made it 6-0 in the sixth.

Most of that offense was unnecessary with Sabathia on the mound, though that’s been the norm this season. His run-support average is the highest in the major leagues.

It helped that Rockies manager Jim Tracy seemed to concede defeat.

He took star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki out in the seventh inning, and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and leading hitter Todd Helton left the game in the eighth.

By then, the Rockies had squandered their best scoring opportunities.

Spilborghs led off the fifth with a double and reached third base before Sabathia wiggled out of trouble. In the sixth, Young and Helton opened with consecutive singles before Tulowitzki grounded into a double play and Giambi went down swinging.

“When you’re facing a guy the magnitude of CC Sabathia, you can’t give them a four- or five-run head start,” Tracy said. “That’s just a very difficult chore to come back from.”

Ben Roethlisberger: Surgery an option

A broken foot that slowed Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger through much of the end of last season — and into the playoffs and Super Bowl — may need an operation to correct the injury.

Roethlisberger, speaking to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Friday, said his right foot bothered him so much last season “there were times during practice and games where I didn’t feel like I’d be able to walk.”

 

Roethlisberger It would have been a really nasty process because of where the break was. It was better off trying not to do anything. It’s going to be something where we’re just going to have to, in essence, play it by ear.

— Ben Roethlisberger

 

But the lockout, Roethlisberger told the newspaper, has given him time to rest. And as a result the foot has nearly fully healed.

“I could have had surgery, but according to the doctors it would have been a really nasty process because of where the break was,” Roethlisberger said. “It was better off trying not to do anything. It’s going to be something where we’re just going to have to, in essence, play it by ear.

“If it continues to be as painful as it was at the end of last year, then I’m going to probably have to have the surgery.”

But as the lockout continues — Saturday marked the standoff’s 102nd day — Roethlisberger has taken advantage of the downtime.

“It’s doing really good. It’s healed up,” he said. “Obviously, it helps when I’m not cutting and planting and doing all of these different activities. It’s really come a long way. I haven’t had too many problems with it recently.”

Roethlisberger overcame the injury to lead the Steelers to the Super Bowl, where they lost 31-25 to the Green Bay Packers.

A metal-reinforced cleat helped him though the injury, starting with a Dec. 5 game at Baltimore and throughout the rest of the season and playoffs — eight games, all told.

After his fourth-game suspension to start the season, Roethlisberger returned to throw for 3,200 yards with 17 touchdowns and five interceptions.

But the loss to the Packer still burns, he said.

“I don’t know if it will ever really go away,” he said, “unless you can get back and win one.”

Johnson, 68, will manage the team for the rest of the season and next season, subject to league approval.

 

Johnson, who is a special assistant with the Nationals, last managed in the big leagues in 2000 for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He won a World Series in 1986 as the manager of the New York Mets.

Johnson’s first game as manager will be Sunday, a source told ESPNChicago.com’s Bruce Levine.

Bench coach John McLaren was named interim manager Thursday night following the stunning resignation of Jim Riggleman.

McLaren’s duties began Friday when he led the Nationals to a 14-inning win against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field. McClaren was ejected in the eighth inning.

The Nationals made no announcement about Johnson after the game.

“I think Davey is a great baseball guy,” said Ryan Zimmerman, who capped the 14th with a two-run double. “A lot of us were around him in spring training. We’ve got a good team here. We’ve got a great group of guys and whoever is the manager, whether it’s Davey or whoever it is, they’re going to be real happy with what we have here.”

The Nationals had won 11 of 12 before Riggleman quit after a 1-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday, saying he felt the franchise wasn’t committed to him over the long term.   

Riggleman wanted the Nationals to pick up his contract option for next year and said the reluctance of Rizzo to have a meeting on the subject reinforced his feeling that he was merely a placeholder until the team could find someone better.

“I’ve never considered myself a quitter,” Riggleman said Friday on ESPN 1000 in Chicago. “I think if I had stayed on and it would have been festering with me, and I would have been able to manage the nine innings, the distraction before and after the game with my attitude about it and not being able to have the same energy and upbeat attitude it takes to run a ballclub, before and after the game, that would have been a distraction to the ballclub.

Lastest in Hockey

The Blackhawks announced the deal late Friday night. Campbell, who had to agree to waive his no-trade clause, has five years left on his contract paying him $7.14 million a season.

Olesz has three more years on his deal with a cap hit of $3.125 million.

Campbell had refused to waive the no-trade clause as recently as Thursday night, a source told ESPNChicago.com’s Jesse Rogers earlier on Friday.

Campbell was a Blackhawks-best plus-28 this past season, which placed him eleventh in the league in that category. Campbell had five goals and 22 assists in 65 games in 2011-11.

Olesz had six goals and 11 assists in 44 games for the Panthers last season.
