SEATTLE - With diapers in one arm and his young son in the other, Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager got the phone call Antworten

SEATTLE - With diapers in one arm and his young son in the other, Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager got the phone call Monday he was hoping to get a day earlier. Nike Shoes Cheap Wholesale . Seager was selected to replace injured Toronto first baseman Edwin Encarnacion on the American Leagues roster for next weeks All-Star game. Encarnacion, who has 26 home runs and 70 RBIs, was put on the 15-day disabled list Monday because of a strained right quadriceps. Encarnacion was injured in Saturdays game against Oakland. Seager said he was just walking out of Babies"RUs with his wife and son when he noticed manager Lloyd McClendon calling. "I put the diapers down and answered the phone," Seager said. "It worked out pretty good." Seager becomes the third Seattle player selected for the July 15 game at Target Field in Minneapolis. The 26-year-old Seager, a first-time All-Star, entered Monday with a .274 average, 13 homers, 59 RBIs and 21 doubles. But those numbers came after a miserable first three weeks of the season that had Seager sitting at .156 with no homers and four RBIs through the first 19 games. In the 66 games since, Seager is hitting .304 with 57 RBIs and a .914 on base plus slugging. "The validation is just playing better and helping the team win. This stuff right here this is just ... its hard to describe," Seager said. "Its just something thats pretty cool and Im really, really happy about, obviously." McClendon wasnt worried about Seagers early struggles, knowing eventually the production would arrive. "The book says hes a good player and having talked with him and learning his personality, I knew that he was going to be OK, so I wasnt really worried about him," McClendon said. Seager will join teammates Felix Hernandez and second baseman Robinson Cano playing for the American League. Its the second time since 2004 Seattle has seen more than two players get selected for the All-Star game. Seagers brother, Corey, was also selected for Sundays All-Star Futures Game, a showcase for minor league talent. "Ive played with Felix a couple of years now and gotten to know Cano pretty good here. To go with a couple of guys that you know will be good," Seager said. Nike Shoes Cheap China . He still wanted out. "It just seemed like the direction they were going didnt fit what I thought my career was going to be," Kesler said.

Radulov scored the lone goal in the shootout, and the Predators edged the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Tuesday night to reach 100 points for the second time in three seasons and fourth in seven. http://www.nikeshoescheapchina.com/ . The Maple Leafs handed their embattled head coach a two-year contract extension on Thursday, while at the same time announcing that assistants Dave Farrish, Greg Cronin and Scott Gordon will not be back.ALAMEDA, Calif. - Rookie Derek Carrs first NFL start as Oakland Raiders quarterback was a learning experience. He saw new defences, exotic blitzes and got to see firsthand what playing in the NFL is like after years of watching big brother David do it. Perhaps the most important thing Carr learned was that he belonged on that big stage already at the start of his rookie season even if the end result against the New York Jets wasnt quite what he hoped with a 19-14 loss last Sunday. "I can do this," Carr said Wednesday. "I was able to go out there and play against a great defence. ... To play against them for your first game, I was fired up because you want to see as much as you can, as early as you can in your career." Carr had an up-and-down performance that would be expected from a rookie making his first career start going up against a Rex Ryan defence. He threw an early touchdown pass to Rod Streater and avoided any turnovers or egregious mistakes. But he also struggled to get the ball downfield, relying mostly on screens and quick passes. Carr completed 20 of 32 passes for 151 yards. Only three of those completions travelled at least 10 yards downfield, including a 30-yard touchdown pass to James Jones in the closing minutes. Carr said the lack of downfield throws was more about situations and the defence than a cautious game plan looking to protect a rookie. "They were called, theres no doubt they were called," Carr said of the deep passes. "It we went down there and out of the 30-something throws, we threw it down the field 28 times, it would probably have been even worse than it looked. It doesnt always work out the way you want to. But they were called and theyll continue to be called." Carrs first start at MetLife Stadium came in the same building that his brother threw his final NFL pass as a backup for the New York Giants in 2012. Derek Carrs first hoome start with the Raiders comes against the Houston Texans, the team that drafted David first overall in 2002 to be the face of the expansion franchise. Clearance Shoes Nike. That did not work out as planned as David Carr struggled at the start on an overmatched team, getting sacked an NFL-record 76 times as a rookie. Those beatings took a toll on David Carr that he was never able to overcome and left an impression on young Derek. "All I knew is I grew up a Cowboys and Raiders fan and I never saw those quarterbacks get hit that much," he said. "Just being honest. Thats what my thought was as a kid. Being older and going back and watching those games, I understand what was going on." While Derek Carr joined a team that hadnt posted a winning record for 11 straight seasons, it is not anything like an expansion team. But even with a veteran offensive line, Carr was pressured on 47.1 per cent of his drop backs, according to Pro Football Focus, third most in the league last week. Making matters worse is the team that generated the most pressure is the Texans with star end J.J. Watt leading the charge. But coach Dennis Allen said he expects to see a step forward this week from Carr and the line. "I thought he handled himself well in the game last week," Allen said. "I think well see improvement. Just like you see from season one to season two, you always see improvement, the most improvement you see during the season is from Week 1 to Week 2. Im excited about watching him play." NOTES: RB Maurice Jones-Drew missed practice with a hand injury and his status is day to day. ... LB Nick Roach practiced after missing the opener because of a concussion sustained in the third exhibition game but has still not been cleared to play. ... CB Chimdi Chekwa was back at practice on a limited basis after being sidelined during the preseason with a knee injury. ' ' '
