GOODYEAR, Ariz. [url=]J.J. Watt Womens Jersey[/url] . - Bryan Pric Antworten

GOODYEAR, Ariz. J.J. Watt Womens Jersey . - Bryan Price sat down in the cushy chair. In front of him was a desk. Behind him, two lockers of his very own. The first-time Cincinnati Reds manager felt a little out of place in his own office. Time to start getting used to it. The Reds open spring training on Friday when pitchers and catchers report and have their first workout. Price will be front-and-centre, a new role for the former pitching coach who took over when Dusty Baker was fired after another playoff disappointment. "I told the guys in our (staff) meeting, You better make sure you come in here and keep me company," Price said on Thursday afternoon. "Im not used to being in a room by myself, unless Im in the doghouse. Been there a few times." And he will be again once the games begin and one of his moves backfires. Ask Baker about that one. Baker got fired after leading the Reds to the playoffs for the third time in four years. They lost to Pittsburgh in the wild card game, the third time they were knocked out in the opening round. The post-season fizzle cost Baker his job and gave Price the chance to manage a team with plenty of talent to contend. He knows the team will be judged not on whether it reaches the playoffs, but whether it wins when it gets there. Just like the Bengals, who have lost their opening playoff game each of the last three seasons, the Reds arent going to get a final grade until well after the regular season has ended. Price isnt going to dwell on it with his players. "For me, the references — if any — will be very short in discussing the past," he said. "Theres nothing we can do about it. Ive inherited a phenomenal group of guys that really want to play this game beyond where weve been." The Reds are in good shape as they get started. The pitching staff is mostly healthy. Reliever Jonathan Broxton had surgery to repair a tear in his forearm last August and has been making good progress in his throwing program during the off-season. Hes the only one who may not be fully ready for opening day. "Hes stayed constant in his throwing progress, which is terrific," Price said. "And we definitely anticipate him being on the mound this month. If thats enough time to get him ready for the season, well see. Well probably have a lot better answer when we get into those last 10 days of March." Right-hander Johnny Cueto has fully recovered from strained muscles in his right side that bothered him most of last season. Cueto wound up on the disabled list three times, limiting him to 11 starts. "That being said, youre talking about a guy who ended the season healthy and there shouldnt be any impediments to his spring training based on last year," Price said. "We can hit the ground running without any inhibitions." Left-hander Tony Cingrani has recovered from back spasms that limited him during his rookie season. Cingrani moves into the spot that opened when Bronson Arroyo left as a free agent, signing with Arizona. The Reds keep in touch with players in the off-season to monitor their health. So far, the reports on all of them are encouraging, although the club will know for sure when they take physicals on Friday before the first workout. "So its probably an easier question to answer once we get through physicals tomorrow, but Im optimistic well be in good health," Price said. NOTES: Price is curious whether the bad weather on the East Coast will interfere with players travel. He said four club officials who were expected for a staff meeting on Thursday couldnt make it because their flights were cancelled. ... The position players report next Wednesday for physicals and the first full-squad workout. The Reds open their spring training schedule against the Indians on Feb. 26. Justin Reid Youth Jersey . The Extreme Heat Policy was enacted at Melbourne Park just before 2 p.m. Thursday, suspending all matches on outer courts until the early evening and requiring the closure of the retractable roofs at Rod Laver and Hisense arenas before play could continue on the show courts. Tytus Howard Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. . - Kevin Labanc and Joseph Blandisi were a potent combination for the Barrie Colts on Friday night.Fort Worth, TX ( - With three races to go in the 2014 Camping World Truck Series season, three drivers are in a tight battle for the championship. Matt Crafton, the defending series champion, holds an 18-point lead over Ryan Blaney and a 22-point advantage over Darrell Wallace Jr. Johnny Sauter, who is Craftons teammate at ThorSport Racing, is a now a long shot for the title, as he trails by 40 points. No driver has won back-to-back championships in the 20-year history of this series. The series is racing at Texas Motor Speedway on Friday night and then competing one week later at Phoenix International Raceway before wrapping up the season on Nov. 14 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In June, Crafton won at Texas for the first time in 27 truck races there. The series has been competing at this 1.5-mile track twice each season since 1999. Crafton put on a dominating performance in the most recent truck event there, leading 118 of 167 laps, but had to conserve his fuel in the closing stages after last pitting with 61 laps to go. Getting a win at Texas was really cool, Crafton said. In June, the track is hot and slippery but this weekend, there will be cooler temps and a lot of grip, so itll be faster. This race is 20 laps shorter, so well have to see how the race plays out, but I feel confident we can pull off a sweep. Crafton claimed his second win of the season at Texas but has not been into victory lane since. He has finished sixth or better in seven of the last eight races, including a third-place run last Saturday at Martinsville Speedway. Blaney led a total of 45 laps in the June race at Texas but ended up finishing fourth. We had a great Ford F--150 in the first race at Texas, Blaney said. Kahale Warring Jersey. . We had a good shot at winning, and it was just kind of a fuel strategy deal that put us back to fourth. Blaney has one win this season, which occurred in August at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. He has finished 10th or better in the last four races. Wallace claimed his third victory of the season at Martinsville. He also finished second at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway before placing ninth at Talladega Superspeedway. We have the momentum on our side from the win at Martinsville, and our mile- and-a-half program has really improved this season, Wallace said. We have been fast on mile-and-a-half tracks, including Texas earlier this season. Since we were last at Texas, I think we have improved even more, and at our last mile-and-a-half race (Sept. 27 at Las Vegas), we ran up front, led laps and came up just short of a win. Wallace has finished 6th, 7th and 10th in his three truck races at Texas. I think we have what it takes to make that a top five this weekend and even contend for the win, he added. Kyle Busch, who is Wallaces teammate and team owner, is competing in this race. Busch has two truck victories at Texas (the fall events in 2009 and 10). He has the most wins in the series this season with six. Thirty-two teams are on the entry list for the WinStar World Casino 350. Series: NASCAR Camping World. Date: Friday, Oct. 31.
