Theres no question theyre in the middle of our lineup

Chael Sonnens ongoing problems with the California State Athletic Commission have left UFC president Dana White fuming. Nike Air Max 2013 Schuhe Herren Weiß . “I think what happen to Chael Sonnen is absolutely insane,” a grim White said. “Its unjust, its unfair.” The middleweight contender flunked a drug test after his loss to Anderson Silva at UFC 117 but his one-year ban was halved after a hearing. The commission subsequently held another meeting to review Sonnens behaviour and that resulted in an indefinite suspension. Sonnen cannot reapply for his license to fight until June 2012. “If youre dumb enough to do something to get in trouble, youve got to face the consequences,” White said. “And youve got to man up and take your punishment. This guys did some dumb stuff, he manned up and he was punished. And he took it on the chin and he did it. “Once that sentence is over, its over, man. Its over.” That has derailed the UFCs plan to have him and Michael Bisping serve as coaches of “The Ultimate Fighter.” White argues that the longer punishment means Sonnen is being cheated of “life-changing money.” Sonnen, a former U.S. Olympic wrestling team alternate, tested positive for elevated testosterone. The 34-year-old has had other problems recently. A realtor as well as a fighter, he pleaded guilty in U.S. federal court in January to one count of money laundering. In April, he was sentenced to two years probation and fined US$10,000. He also forfeited his state real estate license as part of the plea agreement. White said Sonnens fighting ban is so confusing he doesnt even know when he would be eligible to return. “It stinks.” Nike Air Max 90 & 2009 Schuhe Damen Weiß Rosa Grau . — Steven Lenhart scored two goals, including the tying score in second-half stoppage time as the San Jose Earthquakes rallied for a 3-3 draw with FC Dallas on Saturday night.

A ponderous field-position struggle resulted in only three field goals going into the fourth quarter.BALTIMORE – Adam Linds streak of reaching base ended, at nine consecutive plate appearances, in the seventh inning of Mondays 2-1 loss to the Orioles. That stretch, which included three singles and six walks, has earned him a more prominent role in Tuesdays lineup. Lind batted second in the order for the 22nd time in his career and for the first time since 2007. Melky Cabrera moved in to the five hole, behind Edwin Encarnacion. “Were just basically looking to change something up,” said manager John Gibbons prior to Tuesdays game. “Hes been getting on base a lot lately; theres nothing scientific about it, maybe just a little look and that will change something.” The Blue Jays are looking for runs; theyve scored only 31 in the 10 games since leadoff hitter extraordinaire Jose Reyes went down long-term with an ankle injury. Lind, whos taken good-natured ribbing of late – hes the Blue Jays “OBP Machine” – is looking forward to getting an increased number of hitter-friendly pitches batting in front of sluggers Jose Bautista and Encarnacion. “Hopefully I get more fastballs,” said Lind. “Thats the goal to get myself in hitters counts but the way people throw is usually when theyre ahead in the count thats when you get all of the off-speed pitches.” All talk about the lack of offence, plate discipline and the approach to hitting will be quelled if Bautista and EEncarnacion get going. Nike Air Max 2009 Schuhe Kinder Weiß Rot Schwarz. The two have gone a combined 4-31 with a home run (Bautista) and four RBI since Bautista returned last Friday from a four-game absence with back spasms. “The good teams, youve got everybody doing something,” said Gibbons. “Theres no question theyre in the middle of our lineup, theyre our big guys and they will, I mean theyll get it going. You look up and down our lineup, there have been a number of guys whove been hit or miss, theyve been kind of cold. We feel good that once it happens weve got a pretty good team.” Since starting the season 0-for-14 with a walk in his first 15 plate appearances, Lind has responded by going 9-for-25 (.360) with nine walks. He benefited from a recent stretch on the bench – he didnt start four consecutive games and appeared in only the last – when he was able to watch pitchers trends and pick the brains of respected coaches and teammates. “I just havent been too stubborn this year and Ive made adjustments with what pitchers have done,” said Lind. “Sitting on the bench for those four days in a row, you get caught up in the moment when youre playing and you dont have time to sit back. As odd as that may sound with all of the down time you dont have time to sit back and realize what pitchers are trying to do. Then you sit there, talk to (hitting coach Chad Mottola,) DeRosa and it simplifies things a little bit.” ‘ ‘ ‘
