“I’m smiling like a fool now, but it’s a great day,” Davis said.

Baltimore Ravens will open 2013 season on road.Joe Montana Jersey

A league source told the Baltimore Ravens official website early in the week that opening the 2013 NFL season on the road is the “least desirable” option in the team’s Sept. 5 scheduling conflict with the Baltimore Orioles.

That undesirable option is now reality.

The Ravens announced Friday that they will open the 2013 season on the road in a Thursday night game.Joe Montana Throwback Jersey Mitchell and Ness.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had raised the possibility of a Baltimore double-header for that day. Joe Montana Jersey . While the Orioles were willing to compromise on their game time, the NFL and the Ravens ultimately decided that logistical issues would be a nightmare under the double-header scenario.Joe Montana Lights Out Black Jersey.

“After thorough discussions among the Orioles, the NFL and the Ravens,” Ravens president Dick Cass explained in a statement, “it became clear that holding both an Orioles’ game and the Ravens’ regular-season opener on the same day would create logistical situations (that) would cause serious issues for the city of Baltimore, and fans for both teams.”

Cass went on to cite anticipated problems with parking, rush-hour traffic, plus crowd and car congestion around Oriole Park at Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium.

 

NFL senior vice president of communications Greg Aiello released a statement expressing his disappointment for the fans in Baltimore. The NFL still is exploring other avenues for Baltimore fans to celebrate the 2013 NFL Kickoff Game, including a pre-game concert.

The opponent for the Ravens’ Week 1 game has yet to be determined. The NFL already has announced home and road opponents for this season, meaning the Ravens could open the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions or the Denver Broncos.1989 Joe Montana Jersey.

Bullpen Joe Montana Jersey jobs available for new-look relief corps

Bullpens are vital to the success of a baseball team, and with a large amount of offseason turnover, the Texas Rangers are not quite sure what to expect from their bullpen in 2013.

“There are still guys fighting for jobs,” manager Ron Washington said. “We haven’t decided what our pen is going to look like except for Joe Nathan.”

A season ago, the Rangers Bullpen Joe Montana Jersey, mainly Nathan, converted 83 percent of its save opportunities, 11 percent above the Major League average. The Texas relievers were also credited with 116 holds.

However, Mike Adams (3.27 ERA in 61 games), Mark Lowe (3.43 ERA in 36 games) and Koji Uehara (1.75 ERA in 37 games) were all part of that bullpen, and none will be with the team in 2013.

The Rangers Joe Montana Jersey will also attempt to replace Alexi Ogando, who is being moved to the starting rotation. Ogando appeared in 58 games last year, posted an ERA of 3.27 and was second on the team in holds (behind Adams).

“This year we brought up a couple of our young kids that we feel can fill some of those spots, but they have to perform,” Washington said. “They have the ability. They have potential, but they have to get it done.

Washington specifically named Michael Kirkman and Tanner Scheppers as young players who need to step up. Scheppers has been battling a strained left hamstring and scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday. Kirkman has pitched four scoreless inning this spring.Joe Montana Throwback Jersey Mitchell and Ness

To solidify the relief corps, the Rangers also signed Jason Frasor and Joakim Soria over the offseason.

“You like to have your bullpen set, but you do what you have to do,” Washington said. “Sometimes it falls in place, sometimes you are maneuvering pieces throughout the year.”

Entering the season with question marks is not ideal, but Washington will have plenty of choices when constructing his opening day bullpen.

“Of course we have options,” Washington said. “We have a lot of arms, but we certainly haven’t started identifying ‘You’re going to do this’ and ‘You’re going to do that’ because [the pitchers] are competing for jobs.”1989 Joe Montana Jersey.

• Right-handed reliever Joakim Soria is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Monday. Joe Montana Lights Out Black Jersey.Colby Lewis’ next session is scheduled for Wednesday.

• Lance Berkman is in the starting lineup on Sunday, marking the first time he will have played back-to-back games this spring.

• Adrian Beltre is expected to play on Monday, according to assistant general manager Thad Levine — something Washington would neither confirm nor deny.

Kirkman Joe Montana Jersey hoping solid start leads to roster spot

With 28 days remaining until Texas opens the season against the in-state and divisional foe Houston, it may be a bit early to set specific individual goals. However, Michael Kirkman Joe Montana Jersey currently has one goal in mind, and it has been driving him this spring.

“My goal is to be on the roster March 31 in Houston,” Kirkman said. “If I make the team then I might start looking ahead, but right now [my focus] is to be on this roster.”

Kirkman Joe Montana Jersey, who has been a part of the Rangers organization since he was drafted in 2005, is coming off of a 2012 season in which he appeared in 28 games and posted a 3.82 ERA.

Joe Montana Lights Out Black Jersey. It remains early in Spring Training, but the left-hander is building off of last season and has appeared in two games, pitched four scoreless innings and allowed just two hits.

“I feel like I’ve had a solid start,” Kirkman said. “I still have a lot of room to work with. There is a lot of time left in camp, but I’m headed in a good direction right now.”

When discussing his bullpen Saturday, manager Ron Washington said the younger players in the bullpen need to step up in 2013. The 26-year-old Kirkman Joe Montana Throwback Jersey Mitchell and Ness was mentioned specifically.

Kirkman, who is working on pounding the strike zone and smoothing out his mechanics this spring, embraces the challenge.1989 Joe Montana Jersey .

However, Kirkman knows that although he has Washington’s attention, nothing about the projected bullpen is secure because there is plenty of talent and depth to go around.

“There are a lot of guys with really good arms here,” Kirkman said. “[The bullpen] is going to be pretty dang good.”

Joe Montana Jersey Nathan, E. Beltre primed for spring action

Rangers Joe Montana Jersey and Engel Beltre both made their Spring Training debuts on Sunday against the Mariners.

Nathan had been healthy but did not previously pitch in a game because the Rangers simply opted to take it slow, and when the closer finally got his chance, he pitched a scoreless third inning in the game.

Beltre, who has been limited by a sore left shoulder, contributed an RBI triple after starting in right field.

Joe Montana Jersey Nathan posted a 2.80 ERA last year while recording 37 saves in his first season with Texas, and manager Ron Washington saw no need to get Nathan work earlier in spring camp.

“I expect Joe to be Joe,” Washington said before the game. “Throw the ball over the plate, use the pitches he needs to work on, get his inning in and get out healthy.”

While some players get excited to make their debuts and hit the field for the first time following a long offseason, Nathan downplayed the significance of returning.Joe Montana Lights Out Black Jersey.

“It’s just a Spring Training game,” the right-hander said before his outing. “I’ll just go out there and get my work in. It’s just another day to get prepared for Opening Day.”

The 38-year-old Nathan may not be putting much stock in his debut, but how Beltre feels may affect his plans for the World Baseball Classic.Joe Montana Throwback Jersey Mitchell and Ness,

Originally, Beltre, who is planning to play for Spain in the Classic, expected to leave the Rangers on Sunday.

However, Beltre’s shoulder has slowed his progress thus far, and the Rangers worked out an agreement with the Spanish team, allowing Beltre to report late.

Before Beltre leaves for the Classic, the Rangers want him to play in two games, one of which he will play at least five innings.

Ideally for the Spanish team, Beltre will play on Monday after Sunday’s appearance because the Rangers have an off-day Tuesday.

It’s about us coming together as a team and jelling and having that chemistry and going out and competing together. We hope at the end of the day we have a chance to go to the postseason.”

Reliever Joakim Soria Joe Montana Jersey, who was signed by the Rangers as a free agent during the Winter Meetings, said so far his rehabilitation program has gone “perfect” as he continues his recovery from Tommy John surgery.

Soria, who was a two-time All-Star closer during his six years with the Royals, underwent surgery on April 3, 2012, and he’s hoping to be available by the end of May or early June. He is currently throwing long toss and probably won’t go off a mound until the end of February.Joe Montana Lights Out Black Jersey.

“So far it has been perfect, every step has been perfect,” said Soria Joe Montana Jersey, who also missed the entire 2003 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery for the first time. “I know what to expect this time.

Darvish Joe Montana Jersey feels more relaxed after ‘so-so’ season

Yu Darvish Joe Montana Jersey was 16-9 with a 3.90 ERA and 221 strikeouts in 29 starts for the Rangers last season. He didn’t sound particularly thrilled about his season.

“There were some rough times, some good times as well,” Darvish said. “Overall, just so-so.”1989 Joe Montana Jersey.

 The Rangers might take “so-so” from Darvish every year, especially since he’s not sure if he can do better than that.

“Every year is different,” Darvish Joe Montana Throwback Jersey Mitchell and Ness said on Friday night before the Rangers’ annual awards banquet. “Physically I’m different, my body is different, the whole year is different. This year, I’ll adjust to the way I feel physically and attack the season as if it were a new season.”

Darvish Joe Montana Jersey, who accepted his Rangers Rookie of the Year Award on Friday, is a month away from beginning his second season in the Majors. It was one year ago that Texas officially announced his signing, and he did admit that he feels more relaxed this offseason. That has helped his preparation, and Darvish doesn’t feel as frantically rushed as he did last season.

“Compared to last year, I feel so much more at ease,” Darvish said. “After my first year, getting to know the players, the coaches and the front office, I really feel a part of the team. That how I feel right now. It’s a totally different feeling.”

Nathan among Joe Montana Jersey Rangers considering Classic

Joe Montana Jersey Rangers closer Joe Nathan said he has been asked to pitch in the World Baseball Classic. Nathan was contacted by Joe Torre, who will manage the United States team this spring.

“Joe Torre called and said they had interest,” Nathan said. “I asked if I could give him an answer in a couple of weeks, and he said that wouldn’t be a problem. I’ll talk to the Rangers about it. We’re looking to see if that’s the best plan going into the season. If we don’t think it will affect me too bad, it would be an honor to play in it.”

Joe Montana Jersey  Nathan was on the United States team in the inaugural tournament in 2006 while with the Twins, but he decided against playing in ’09.

Third baseman Adrian Beltre and Nelson Cruz said they are planning to play for the Dominican Republic. Like Nathan, Beltre played in 2006, but did not play in ’09.

“You get to play for your country, it’s good competition and the fans like it,” Beltre said. “I’m looking forward to playing for my country and winning. The fans in our country take a lot of pride in how we do over here. We’re not happy how the last [tournaments] ended up, not even going to the finals. We want to show we’re better than that. I want to be a part of it and beat Japan.”Joe Montana Lights Out Black Jersey.

Houston Texans J.J.Watt Camouflage Jersey owner: Ed Reed adds missing ball skills

Ed Reed texted NFL.com’s Albert Breer on Wednesday to say that barring a last-second change, he will sign with the Houston Texans.J.J.Watt Camo Fashion Jersey.

Not long afterward, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport caught up with Texans owner Bob McNair after the NFL Annual Meeting closed in Phoenix and discussed the probable Hall of Fame safety’s future in Houston Texans J.J.Watt Camouflage Jersey.

“Ed Reed is a terrific fit for us because we’ve got some DBs who are really good at playing the run, good at covering,” McNair said. “We don’t have the ball skills that I’d like for us to have. We play all of the top quarterbacks in the league, and we needed a free safety back there that had some outstanding ball skills.

“Obviously, J.J.Watt Camouflage Jersey. does, so I think it complements what we’ve already got. I think he’ll offer some great leadership. That’s extremely important.”

Reed leads all active players with 61 career interceptions. J.J.Watt Jersey Truthfully, Reed became more of a priority after the Detroit Lions signed Glover Quin, so the Texans needed to replace that talent on the back end.

So much for Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti’s gut feeling that Reed would be back in Baltimore.
