MINNEAPOLIS - J. [url=]Paul Coffey Oilers Jersey[/url] .A. Happ returned to t Antworten

MINNEAPOLIS - J. Paul Coffey Oilers Jersey .A. Happ returned to the Blue Jays in time for the clubs three-game series against the Twins. Hell be a long reliever for the foreseeable future, something with which hes not thrilled. "Its not necessarily what I prepared to do but if the phone rings and its me Im going to try and get guys out and take it from there," said Happ. "Other than that, I dont have a lot to say about the bullpen role." Happ entered spring training with a spot in the starting rotation. He pitched his way out of it, posting a 20.57 ERA in four appearances, battling inflammation in his back through most of March. After two poor outings, Happ was away from the club for two days, March 7-8, on what the Blue Jays termed "doctors orders" to remain off his feet. Happ returned and was no better in final two starts. The back issues, deemed to be a non-issue after Happs final appearance in a 22-5 loss to the Pirates on March 25, were the cause of his being placed on the disabled list the very next day. Happ made two rehab starts, one for Single-A Dunedin, the other for Triple-A Buffalo. With the Bisons, Happ struck out six hitters in 4 2/3 innings. The arrival of Happ, coupled with the optioning of catcher Erik Kratz to the Bisons, puts the Blue Jays back into an eight-man bullpen, three-man bench scenario. Another pitching decision is on the horizon with the impending return of closer Casey Janssen. Neil Wagner, Esmil Rogers, Todd Redmond and Happ are the four who could be realistically considered on the bubble. Both Rogers and Redmond are out of options. On merit, Redmonds earned the right to remain with the club. Happ has an option remaining but because he has more than five years of major league service time, he has the right to refuse assignment to the minor leagues. Rogers has given up four home runs in 8 1/3 innings of predominantly low leverage relief. However, he carries a $1.85-million ticket and is, indirectly, the asset the Blue Jays have from the John Farrell "trade" to Boston. Rogers was acquired from Cleveland for Mike Aviles, whom the Jays got from the Red Sox for Farrell, and Yan Gomes. Gomes, by the way, just signed a six-year extension with the Indians for $23-million. Or, the Blue Jays could simply option Neil Wagner back to Triple-A Buffalo, although that would fly in the face of any claim to stick with the best 25-man active roster. Manager John Gibbons trusts Wagner in high leverage, late-game situations but when Janssen is back, right-handers Steve Delabar and Sergio Santos will fill that role. The bullpen is, once again, a crowded place, and now includes a member who doesnt want to be there. "I see myself as a starter," said Happ. "I dont think thats any secret. I want to be a starter in the major leagues. Thats that." RASMUS PROGNOSIS GOOD Colby Rasmus wasnt in Tuesdays starting lineup, resting his left hamstring, which he tweaked in the fifth inning of Sundays win in Baltimore. "Im hoping to be in there (Wednesday,)" said Rasmus. "Come in (Wednesday) and see how it is. Got some good treatment in today and just going to go from there." The timing is unfortunate considering Rasmus recent offensive production. He hit home runs in both Saturdays and Sundays games and went 4-12 with three runs scored in the series with the Orioles. "I definitely feel much better today," said Rasmus. "I feel good about it. I dont feel like its something thats going to carry over. Just one day to get it right and hopefully (Wednesday) it will be good." REYES AND JANSSEN PLAY FOR DUNEDIN Jose Reyes and Casey Janssen made their first appearances for Single-A Dunedin on Tuesday night, the next step in their respective rehabilitation assignments. Reyes, coming back from a strained left hamstring, went hitless in four plate appearances but drew a walk, scored a run and drove in a run. He will play for Dunedin, again, on Wednesday and is expected to return to the Blue Jays on Friday, in time for a three-game weekend series in Cleveland. Janssen pitched the first inning, allowing a hit and striking out one batter. Theres no timetable set for Janssens return from an abdominal strain. Hell have at least one more appearance for Dunedin; then, maybe another. The Blue Jays are waiting to see how the injured area responds before determining how to proceed. WEATHER PROBLEMS Minnesotans are bracing for a rain-snow mix on Wednesday, which could threaten the second game of the series. Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey is scheduled to pitch for the Blue Jays. The Twins are to send right-hander Mike Pelfrey to the mound. Thursdays getaway day game is scheduled for 1:10 eastern time. This is the Jays only scheduled visit to Minnesota this season so if Wednesdays game is postponed it stands to reason the teams would play a doubleheader on Thursday. Kyle Brodziak Jersey . Hoefl-Rieschs exit — from the downhill course into safety nets, then airlifted from the slope by helicopter — left Anna Fenninger of Austria favourite to win her first giant crystal trophy one month after becoming an Olympic champion. Matt Benning Oilers Jersey . They probably ruined Tim Duncans hopes of a career change, though. Duncan wants to be a point guard, coach Gregg Popovich revealed Saturday, a wish that wont be granted. . But sometimes the way you lose takes precedence over the final score. And how the Jets lost the 5-4 game to the New York Islanders on Thursday is what had Coach Claude Noel hot after the game.This week, Martin Tylers stats and facts column looks at which players have the most successful Premier League penalty record, as well as the fixtures that have produced the most goals. How to send your questions to Martin:Tweet @SkyFootball using the hashtag #TylersTeasers. Martins Starting StatSunderland enjoyed their fifth consecutive win in the Tyne-Wear derby on Sunday afternoon and they are now seven unbeaten against Newcastle, which equals their best ever run against them. The five wins in a row equals the Newcastle’s feat from February 2002 to April 2006, while September 1957 to October 1963 is the last time Sunderland went seven unbeaten against Newcastle. The most astonishing statistic is perhaps the second-game syndrome. Paolo Di Canio, Gus Poyet and Dick Advocaat all lost their first game in charge of Sunderland and all won their second game in charge - which was against Newcastle.Advocaat became the fourth different Sunderland boss in the last four home games against Newcastle; Steve Bruce (August 2011); Martin O’Neill (October 2012); Gus Poyet (October 2013) and Advocaat (April 2015).John OShea has now made 19 career appearances against Newcastle without defeat.Jermain Defoe, who was playing in his first Tyne-Wear derby, scored a memorable goal. In 18 North London derbies he only scored once. It was his seventh goal in 19 appearances against Newcastle and his 127th Premier League goal, which puts him joint 11th with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink – with more to come you would suspect.In 140 league derbies, Sunderland have now won 46. Newcastle have won 51 and there have been 43 draws. Overall there have been 154 derbies and Sunderland are now level with Newcastle on 53 wins with 48 draws.In the Premier League there have been 26 derbies, Sunderland have won eight, Newcastle have won nine and there have been nine draws.On the spot Eden Hazard scored Chelseas 100th successful Premier League penalty against Stoke I read that Chelsea scored their 100th Premier League penalty against Stoke. Have they scored the most penalties in Premier League history? (James, Glasgow) MARTIN SAYS: Thats right, Eden Hazards spot-kick on Saturday was Chelseas 100th Premier League penalty goal, but theyre not quite top of the all-time list. Jose Mourinhos side are second, but it is Liverpool who top the charts with 102 Premier League penalty goals.Chelsea are fourth on the all-time list of penalties awarded (114), but have a remarkable scoring rate, putting away 100 of their spot-kicks. Liverpool (133), Arsenal (125) and Manchester United (117) have won more, but only Liverpool have converted more.The Reds have put away 102 of their 133 penalties, two more than Chelsea, with Arsenal (94 goals from their 125) and Manchester United (89 goals from their 117) lagging behind. All-time Premier League penalties (scored and awarded)1. Liverpool (102 goals from 133 awards)2. Chelsea (100 goals from 114 awards)3. Arsenal (94 goals from 125 awards)4. Manchester United (89 goals from 117 awards)5. Newcastle (89 goals from 111 awards)6. Everton (79 goals from 102 awards)7. Tottenham (71 goals from 100 awards)8. Aston Villa (64 goals from 95 awards)Eden perfect Dimitar Berbatov has scored all nine of his Premier League penalties Eden Hazard has scored nine out of nine Premier League penalties.Which other Premier League players have never missed? (Ben, Surrey)MARTIN SAYS: Eden Hazard’s spot-kick against Stoke, as mentioned earlier, was memorable for the fact it was Chelsea’s 100th successful penalty in Premier League history, but on a personal level he also moved joint-top of the 100 per cent record charts.Hazard and Dimitar Berbatov have both scored nine from nine, the highest number of penalties taken while still retaining a 100 per cent record, while Manchester City’s Yaya Toure has scored all eight of his. Liverpool legend Jan Molby only managed seven Premier League penalties in the back-end of his Anfield career, but he scored all of them.There are eight players who have taken six penalties and scored every one: Elano, Stephen Hunt, Craig Gardner, Graham Alexander, Garry Parker, Rickie Lambert, Santi Cazorla and Clive Wilson.Honourable mentions must go to Wilfried Bony, Mario Balotelli and Shola Ameobi, all still playing, who have all scored five from five, and could still make the list if they step up to take another.It’s worth mentioning Leighton Baines, who was top of thiss list earlier this season after scoring 14 consecutive penalties – before David de Gea saved his 15th kick. Mark Messier Oilers Jersey. Super subs Victor Anichebe pulls one back for West Brom to make it 3-1 against Queens Park Rangers Victor Anichebe scored another goal from the bench on Saturday. Has any player scored more times as a sub than when they started? (Malcolm, Kidderminster)MARTIN SAYS: Victor Anichebe’s record is remarkable, and he does indeed have the highest percentage of substitute goals in Premier League history.We asked our friends at Opta to look at those players who have scored a minimum of 20 goals in the top flight and tell us who has the highest percentage from the bench. The West Brom striker is the only man with a percentage above 50 per cent (59.1), scoring 13 of his 22 career Premier League goals as a substitute.Second on the list is Roman Pavlyuchenko, who spent four years at Tottenham between 2008 and 2012; he scored 45 per cent of his Premier League goals off the bench (nine of 20).Ex-Aston Villa, Swansea and West Brom man Luke Moore, who is now plying his trade with Toronto in MLS, comes in at third with 40 per cent (eight from his 20), while Szilard Nemeth, the former Middlesbrough man, is fourth with 39.1 per cent (nine from 23).The one name you’d perhaps expect to make the list, such was his impact from the bench for Manchester United, is Javier Hernandez. He scored a memorable 37 goals in the Premier League, and 14 of them (37.8 per cent) came when he started as a substitute.Games with most goals Mario Balotelli scores his first Premier League goal for Liverpool against Tottenham In the mid-nineties Liverpool v Newcastle produced classic after classic… but which Premier League fixture has produced the most goals in history? (Geraint, Cornwall)MARTIN SAYS: You’re right, I can remember some fantastic battles between Liverpool and Newcastle in the past, but it is not the fixture with the most goals in Premier League history.That title goes to Liverpool v Tottenham, a fixture that has produced a magnificent eight goals just this season. Mario Balotelli scored his first Premier League goal for Liverpool at Anfield in February, as Brendan Rodgers’ side ran out 3-2 winners, while the Reds’ 3-0 win at White Hart Lane in August was also full of goals.That fixture has produced 134 goals since the inception of the Premier League in 1992, three more than the second-placed fixture: the north London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham (131 goals).The aforementioned Liverpool v Newcastle battle is third on the list of fixtures with the most goals (130), alongside Chelsea v Tottenham with the same amount. However, it’s worth pointing out that Newcastle and Liverpool have met fewer times than the other fixtures mentioned (Newcastle have sent two seasons outside the Premier League).I am often asked about the greatest game I’ve ever commentated and the 1996 version of Liverpool 4-3 Newcastle is the answer I always give. I’m looking forward to commentating on Monday night’s game for the Premier League, which can be heard if you’re not viewing in the UK.Not Roo again! Wayne Rooney of Manchester United celebrates after scoring against Aston Villa Wayne Rooney netted his 13th goal against Aston Villa at the weekend, more than he’s scored against any other side. But which Premier League player has scored the most goals against one team? (John, Stockport)MARTIN SAYS: Alan Shearer is far and away the Premier League’s all-time top goalscorer, so it is perhaps unsurprising that has scored the most goals against one team.The Newcastle United legend scored a remarkable 20 goals against Leeds United in the Premier League era.Shearer also scored 16 against Everton – a tally matched by Les Ferdinand, who also scored 16 against Everton in his career.Shearer has also scored 14 against Southampton, Coventry and Tottenham.Rooney’s 13th goal against Aston Villa puts him next on the list of most goals against one opponent, alongside Frank Lampard (13 against Aston Villa), Michael Owen (13 against West Ham and Newcastle) and that man Shearer again (13 against Sheffield Wednesday).Watch the Manchester derby, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool on NOW TV with a Sky Sports Week Pass.
