earned an increase in his base sa

The most interesting game in Week 17 was Montreals dominate 36-5 win over Hamilton. I wondered when the Montreal Alouettes were going to find a new bright light at quarterback, our games most important position. Well, after watching Troy Smith play, going 17-35 for 247 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions, you wonder if that bright light is beginning to shine. Now, both Josh Neiswander and Tanner Marsh are good quarterbacks, but that is the problem; they are good and not necessarily great. Neiswander, from Angelo State, and Marsh, from Arkansas Tech, have each had their opportunities to perform. Smith is from Ohio State and already was a proven performer. Football is a tough sport and one of the toughest aspects of the sport are getting chances; you have very few. Most get just one, a minority get two and if you do not overwhelm ASAP you will not get a third. Smith did not overwhelm but he did look good. He impressed enough for a second chance to be the transition from greatness in Anthony Calvillo to hopefully more greatness for the Alouettes. The next question is where does that leave Calvillo? The truth is we wont know until as late as March or April. You cant dismiss the 20 years of CFL football, 16 with Montreal. You cant dismiss the 455 touchdown passes or the 79,816 passing yards as those accomplishments have extreme value. But you cant dismiss age either, Calvillos being 42. The hardest thing for Calvillo to do is leave the game under the circumstances he did: being assisted off the field due to head trauma rather than walking off, head held high. And lets not rationalize it, a concussion is head trauma. Its just not the way you want to go out and if so, it will grind inside of you for a long time. I speak from experience here. I would not be surprised if AC tried to play one more year, not only for the closure but to keep the “what if” demons away. Very slowly but in logical fashion GM and head coach Jim Popp is making the Alouettes a winner again. Smith, Duron Carter, Tyrell Sutton and others are being filtered into the roster, being evaluated in the games remaining, and will inevitably improve the team in the future. On the opposite side with Edmonton and Winnipeg, the 2014 season starts now. Its terrible to say as I am sure if you are a fan of either of those teams you didnt want to hear that but as teams out of the playoffs, it is a unique opportunity to see what you have for the future. If both Winnipeg and Edmonton won the last two games, so what? If they found a couple of gems at specific positions, that would be extremely beneficial. There may not be a more negative or even depressing atmosphere than a pro football locker room without playoff goals. It is very subtle but you can feel its insecurity. Both Edmonton and Winnipeg should pay the price for future success right now. In Toronto and Hamilton, it is time to rededicate. Toronto did not look good in their 26-20 win over the Blue Bombers and after two good performances, the Tiger-Cats did not have the focus and concentration needed to be respected on Sunday. Having said that, I would not be surprised if both team won in dominate fashion this week. Both Scott Milanovich and Kent Austin have been exceptional hires for each organization. To me, theyre more similar than different. Theyre demanding, have excellent attention to detail, and are confronting. Both teams will play with greater execution this week because of those two coaches. In Calgary only two words come to mind: complete team. In Saskatchewan, it is still up in the air; a Grey Cup game at home is out there for the taking. Thats an experience that, if accomplished, no one will forget. Forcing eight turnovers against the BC Lions was special. The best game of Week 18 is easy: Saskatchewan at Calgary on Saturday night. Which leads me to BC; it looks like they will have to do it the hard way: two road games in the playoffs to make it to Regina. Most impressive aspect of Lions football right now is Stefan Logan. They found a running back from the past to help in the present and future. Logan and Andrew Harris, and maybe even Tim Brown too, that could be very effective. The Lions are dangerous because their back is against the wall. Mario Hezonja Jersey . Each day, TSN.ca provides the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NHL beat.

Darvish had been set to be the Rangers starter in Mondays opener against Philadelphia before having neck stiffness during camp. He last pitched in a game two weeks ago and didnt resume throwing until consecutive sessions this weekend. Texas also put left-hander Matt Harrison, last years opening-day starter, on the 15-day disabled list while setting its 25-man roster for the start of the season. Harrison, who made only two starts last season before twice having surgery on a herniated disk in his back, had a setback early in spring training, when he felt neck and back stiffness. He could return to the rotation before the end of April. Darvishs move to the disabled list was retroactive to March 21, meaning he could be eligible to return next weekend. Harrisons move was retroactive to March 29. Left-hander Derek Holland was already on the 60-day disabled list and not expected back until at least June after surgery on his left knee, injured during the off-season when he was tripped by his dog on stairs in his home. Texas said Darvish reported feeling strong after his bullpen session with pitching coach Mike Maddux on Sunday, a day after 30 throws off flat ground. Darvish, who last season led the majors with 277 strikeouts and finished second in the AL Cy Young Award voting, will get a day off from his throwing program before resuuming Tuesday.dddddddddddd Texas also selected the contract of infielder Josh Wilson from Triple-A Round Rock, and he could start at second base. Infielder Adam Rosales was designated for assignment, giving the Rangers 10 days to trade him, release him or send him outright him to the minor leagues. Second baseman Jurickson Profar (muscle tear in right shoulder) and catcher Geovany Soto (torn meniscus cartilage in right knee) are both expected to be out up to three months. Profar was put on the 15-day disabled list, and Soto on the 60-day list. The opening 25-man roster includes only four starting pitchers: Tanner Scheppers, Martin Perez, Robbie Ross and Joe Saunders, the left-hander signed after camp opened and who earned an increase in his base salary from $500,000 to $1.5 million by being on the active roster for one day. The Rangers dont need a fifth starter until the second week of the season, and will make a move then. Texas will start the season with seven relief pitchers and three catchers: J.P. Arencibia will start and be backed up by Robinson Chrinois and Chris Gimenez. The six outfielders include Mitch Moreland, who also is a first baseman and designated hitter. Wilson likely will split time at second base with Donnie Murphy, claimed off waivers last week from the Chicago Cubs. The only other listed infielders are first baseman Prince Fielder, shortstop Elvis Andrus and third baseman Adrian Beltre.
