  The LG V10 add some valuable changes and interesting design compared with the former version of the smartphone. Do you know the light bleeding on its second screen? This topic may sound compelling. Today, I’d like to introduce the LG V10 to you in details. If you haven’t noticed this phenomenon, you can check it in this way. Bring your LG V10 to the dark room and take a look at the edges of your second screen when the main screen is off.

 

The LG V10 has two screens, one of which is an enormous, high-resolution beauty we can’t stop staring at, and the other isn’t. The 5.7-inch main panel is a larger version of the G4’s Quad HD display, and it’s stunning. Bring the brightness down to about 50-percent, choose a dark wallpaper with splashes of color, and revel in its gorgeousness. Play some video, and it’s even better, with strong contrast, incredibly bright colors, and lively tones.

 

  There is a multitude of changes. The first one I’ll address is the size. The V10 is significantly larger than the G4, and well in the phabletcategory. It is also larger than the Note5 despite having the same 5.7screen size. But the reason for that isn’t bezel, it’s because LG has a couple extra hardware features above the main display dual front cameras and a 2.1secondary screen.

 

  From a quality perspective, the displays are neck-and-neck. You have to nitpick on the details to pull away from the differences. And it ultimately comes down to the advantages/disadvantages between LCD and OLED panels. Blacks are surprisingly deep on the V10, for an LCD. But a fine-tuned eye will notice the backlight. I don’t mean light bleeding, I mean the faint hue of the backlight when black is displayed on the screen. When you come from an OLED panel (where only lit pixels show light), the non-true blackness is more apparent. Another difference is in color richness/vibrancy. Relative to the Note5, colors on the LG panel look flat/dull. Mind you, this isn’t a bad thing, it’s more a matter of user preference. Some folks may like a more natural look to images. The V10’s panel would then your cup of tea. When Samsung fires up the brightness in situations like this, the color accuracy degrades – Samsung figures that at this point you’ll care about seeing what’s on the screen than accurate colors. To me, the V10 is the winner outdoors. One of the V10’s stapled features is the additional strip of the screen above the main display, which provides quick launch shortcuts (more on that soon). From what I can see, it is a continuation of the main Quantum display, so the quality is fortunately consistent (the resolution PPI is also maintained). However, being that it is butted up against the cutout for the front cameras, you can see a light-bleeding effect at the border.

 

  It’s less visible during the day, but at night it may be bothersome to some people (especially being that the second screen is always on). Using an AMOLED panel would be advantageous in a case like this. There really isn’t much you can do about this. A lot of people have suggested that there are differences between models based on manufacturing, but others claim that every LG V10 has this issue because of the separate backlight for the second screen (which should only come on when the main screen is off). Sometimes the light bleed is really noticeable, sometimes it isn’t, and it might be in the top left corner or on the right. For that reason, you might get an LG V10 handset with less bleed if you exchange it, but there’s obviously no guarantee.

 

 If you own a LG V10, that means you have a powerful camera at your hand. It has the dual camera, which is impressive. Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Note 5 both boast 120-degree front-facing camera sensors. It’s great for bringing in a bunch of friends or family members for a group selfie. But it’s absolutely unnecessary when you’re just trying to take a picture on your own. While, The V10’s dual front-facing cameras let you switch between 120- and 80-degrees, so you can switch between the individual and the group selfie. If you prefer owning this wonderful camera, this smartphone is really a nice option you can choose.

 

 

  The dual camera, displays, and impressive design make this smartphone more attractive. But the light bleeding issue is significant, too. We need to pay more emphasize on this tough problem. It is indeed a small defection. We have theGrade O+ LG V10 LCD display assemblyprepared. If your screen met some problems, you can do it by yourself or replace it. Because we have screen digitizer replacement as well as a set of free tool. If you have any further problems, we will give you the money back warranty as the alternative in 180 days.

Every championship season has a turning point. http://www.jordan1uk.com/402297-001-air-jordan-1-ko-2012-black-varsity-red-white-a01016.html . For the 1986 New York Giants it happened in Minnesota. It happened when a quarterback found his confidence. It happened when a crack-addicted wide receiver made a catch and converted a late-game fourth down and forever. From his new book, Big Blue Wrecking Crew: Smashmouth Football, A Little Bit of Crazy, and the 86 Super Bowl Champs, Jerry Barca tells the story of the men of this moment.On an autumn Sunday night in northern New Jersey, Phil Simms sat at his kitchen table and didnt say anything. His wife had made a big meal. She always cooked after games. The Giants had beaten the Cowboys 17-14 that day, but the couple sat in silence.The Dallas game was as bad as it ever got. We won the game, but, my God. I was shot. Just shot. I couldnt concentrate on the plays because I couldnt trust the players. I didnt trust the receivers.Simms had posted a 22.2 quarterback rating. It was -- and always would be -- the worst rating in his 164-game career.The Giants beat the Eagles 17-14 in Philadelphia the next week. Simms didnt fare much better than the week before. Receivers dropped fives of his passes. He threw two interceptions and posted a 29.6 passer rating, completing 8 of 18 attempts for 130 yards.Even though we won and were 8-2, I couldnt have cared less. It felt like we were 2-8.Giants head coach Bill Parcells could see Simmss confidence was shaken. Parcells called the quarterback into his office. Youve got your team in first place, he said. I just want you to go out there and be aggressive. Take chances, and lets try to win this thing.Late in the day, when only a few people were still at the Giants facility, Bill Belichick, the teams defensive coordinator, went out of his way to stop Simms in the hallway outside the locker room. Belichick told Simms he saw the quarterback putting work in every day. Youre a really good player. I have great faith in you. Just do your job.The Giants headed to Minnesota to play a 6-4 Vikings team that was eyeing a playoff berth.From the Giants first possession of the game, Simms looked different. He moved with fluidity in the pocket. Stepping up in the face of pressure, he took hits and delivered passes. He completed 11 of 15 throws in the first half for 173 yards. He even rushed for 16 yards on two carries.Up 9-6 with 55 seconds left in the half and the ball at their own 22-yard line, the Giants and Simms stayed aggressive. Simms completed three straight passes and pushed the hurry-up offense, running up to the Vikings 37-yard line. Same play! Same play! he yelled amid the din of the Metrodome.Left tackle Brad Benson took this to mean the ball would be snapped on the second sound, just as it had been on the play before. As Simms came to the line of scrimmage, he yelled, Same play! again and Benson moved, drawing a false start penalty.When the refs marched off the penalty, Parcells started screaming at Benson, F--- you. And Benson gave it back to him. The penalty forced kicker Raul Allegre into a 60-yard field goal attempt, which he missed as time ran out in the half.Parcells and Benson had to be separated at halftime. Benson stood in the showers, away from the head coach and out of the offensive meeting.Down 20-19 with 1:12 to play, Simms took a sack on third down and eight. The Giants called timeout to discuss their options on 4th and 17 from their own 48-yard line. They picked: Half Right W-Motion 74 X In.I was just supposed to run like a clear out, said wide receiver Bobby Johnson. I actually wasnt in the play.As the offense broke the huddle, Simms told Johnson to be alert. He might have to throw to him late.The crowd noise forced Simms under center. Simms dropped back. He looked left. Nothing. He scanned the middle of the field. Nothing. The Vikings rushed three, running a stunt with nose tackle Mike Stensrud looping outside on a bull-rush. Stensrud hit Simms just as the quarterback released the ball to the right.The ball spiraled toward the sideline. Twenty-two yards down field, Johnson had found an open spot and made the catch at the Vikings 30-yard line.The Metrodome fell quiet. Johnson didnt offer any big celebration. He clapped his hands together as he jogged back to the huddle.By now, Johnson, a third-year undrafted free agent out of Kansas, had become a full-fledged crack addict.Sometime early in the offseason, Johnson had a teammate and couple of women to his apartment in Hackensack, N.J. One of the women brought some cocaine.She combined it with water and baking soda and boiled the mixture in a spoon. Rocks emerged. She had made crack cocaine. You have to try this, she said, looking at Johnson. She lit the pipe, and Johnson took a hit.It was just overwhelmingly good, he said.He thought he was mentally strong enough. He thought hed do this a couple of times and be done with it. But it dont work like that.By the time the season started, it had gotten to the point where crack was the first thing he needed after practice and the last thing he needed to do before he went to sleep.A few plays after Johnsons fourth-down catch, Allegre hit a 33-yard field goal with 12 seconds to play. The Giants won 22-20.We wouldnt say it aloud. We wouldnt say it in public, but it was almost like divine intervention from that point on. We knew that we were destined to win, said defensive end George Martin.After the game, in a whooping and cheering locker room, Parcells touted his quarterback to the media. He even kissed Simms on the cheek.It was like the only endorsement he gave me in his whole career. He never did that, Simms said.Simms finished the day with 310 yards passing, connecting on 25 of 38 attempts. He threw two interceptions in the game, but he didnt let the miscues dull his confidence. Lets go out there and fight them again. It was a very physical game. I took some hellacious hits in the game, and its just the way I wanted to play. Thats who I wanted to be every week.Later that season, Simms completed 22 of 25 passes in Super Bowl XXI. He won the games MVP and he still holds the Super Bowl record for completion percentage, but the game at Minnesota ranks higher for him.Its my favorite game in my career, not because of the fourth and 17, but because I played the way I really wanted to play.While boarding the plane from Minnesota back to New Jersey, Brad Benson and Parcells exchanged glares. Benson sat in the back, drinking a beer with Simms. A trainer interrupted them to let Benson know Parcells wanted to see him. Simms offered Benson some luck as the left tackle walked up to the front.Parcells greeted Benson with, Sit down. Want a drink?No. Im all right, said Benson, thinking he didnt want to stay that long.Listen, I was a little rough today. Im willing to say Im sorry, Parcells said.Well, Im sorry, too.You know youre one of my guys. Youre one of my lunch pail guys.They spoke for 10 minutes. Benson did take a seat. He felt like it was a great pep talk from his coach.Were okay, right? Parcells asked, closing up the chat.Were okay.Benson stood up to leave. Parcells took his hand. Oh, one more thing. You ever jump offsides like that in a crucial situation, Ill cut your ass.As time ran out in the Giants 39-20 Super Bowl XXI win over the Denver Broncos, Bobby Johnson cried. He knew his time was up with the Giants. No one had said anything to him, but they didnt need to. He knew his drug-fueled behavior would no longer be tolerated. Johnson never played another down in the NFL.After football ended, his drug use worsened. He became homeless. He slept on park benches. In June 1994, the man who caught the most important pass in the Giants 1986 season lost three fingers on his right hand in a work accident at a pencil factory. A couple of years after that, he walked into his mothers home in Smyrna, Tennessee. Son, you look terrible. You look terrible, she said, and she started crying.Johnson never went to rehab, but he ended his drug use after that visit. He has been sober since. He doesnt look back at his time in the NFL with any bitterness. He loves the Giants and Parcells. He calls it a happy ending because Im alive.http://www.jordan1uk.com/555088-123-air-jordan-1-retro-high-og-white-black-carmine.html .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N. http://www.jordan1uk.com/air-retro-jordan-3s-qs-joker-a03018-black-green.html . -- Cam Newton pranced into the end zone, placed his hands over his chest and did his familiar Superman pose. http://www.jordan1uk.com/310810-001-air-jordan-13-low-black-yellow.html .

Barcelona announced Tuesday that the Argentine coach would take over for Vilanova, who stepped down last week to proceed with a cancer treatment that was "incompatible" with his coaching duties. The 50-year-old Martino has never coached in Europe before, and after five trophy-laden seasons with coaches who had come up through the clubs youth programs, his signing represents a break from the line of selecting in-house managers. Martino said that he would tweak the team he has inherited, looking to improve on something that was already working well. "I will try to combine both things, keeping with the style of the club and the style the players are comfortable playing in, but logically while trying to add my own part to make a more complete team," Martino said. "There are excellent players here and if we can go back to the ideas of the great moments of Barcelona we will do well." Martino will travel later Friday to Oslo, where Barcelona is getting ready to play a friendly against Valerenga on Saturday. The Spanish league is set to begin on Aug. 17-18. He will have a tough act to follow. Vilanova led Barcelona to the Spanish league title last season and helped Guardiola guide it to an unprecedented 14 of a possible 19 titles as his assistant from 2008-12. In his favour, Martino will receive a star-studded squad with Lionel Messi, several Spanish internationals such as Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez and Cesc Fabregas, and the clubs latest major signing, Brazil striker Neymar. But his chances for success may largely depend on how well he can convince this diverse collection of players used to winning, and winning in the Barcelona way of attacking football, that he is the right man to carry the team through this unexpected ttransition. http://www.jordan1uk.com/136085-140-air-jordan-retro-1-white-carolina-blue-patent-leather-white-university-blue-a01007.html. While Barcelona won its fourth Spanish league title in five years last season, it lost its place as Europes best team after Bayern Munich crushed it 7-0 over two legs of the Champions League semifinals. Martino thinks he can put Barcelona back on top. "Even for a club like Barcelona that has reached such a high level of excellence, it can also get better and needs to in order to sustain a high level of winning," Martino said. "Above all, we want to recover Barcelonas ability to pressure high up the pitch. We want a Barcelona comfortable in attack and defending far from its own area." While not going into many details about a group of players he has yet to meet, Martino said that he plans to keep using Messi as Barcelonas central forward, "where he has exploded in recent years." Martino considered it "normal" that he was relatively unknown in Europe. His greatest coaching achievements are leading Newells Old Boys to the Argentine league title last season and Paraguay to the quarterfinals of the World Cup in 2010. He has already received the backing of Messi. "He (is) a great coach and his record speaks for itself. He showed he could do things well both at Newells and with Paraguay," Messi said. "I am convinced he will do well at Barca." Messi played for Newells in his home town of Rosario as a young boy before his move to Spain to join Barcelonas "La Masia" training academy. The four-time world player of the year has been Martinos most vocal supporter so far, even though they dont know each other personally. Martino, who has the nickname "Tata," led Newells to its first league title in nine years last in June, achieving a remarkable turnaround for a side that had fought off relegation the season before. He coached Paraguay from 2007-11. As a player, Martino was a midfielder from 1980-1996, including a short spell in 1991 at Spanish club Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

HOUSTON -- The Astros have exercised catcher/designated hitter Evan Gattis $5. Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Pink Blush .2 million option for 2017.Gattis gets a $2 million raise. Houston could have paid a $100,000 buyout, which would have made Gattis eligible for salary arbitration.Gattis hit .251 with a career-high and team-leading 32 homers with 72 RBI in his second season in Houston after spending the first two years of his career with the Atlanta Braves. He started 136 games as the teams designated hitter in 2015 before the Astros transitioned him into their backup catcher this season. He started 49 games at catcher in 2016 and appeared in 71 games as designated hitter.Also on Friday, the Astros traded reliever Pat Neshek to the Philadelphia Phillies for a player to be named. Neshek went 5-8 with a 3.36 ERA in 126 appearances over two seasons for Houston.Philadelphia exercised a $6.5 million on Neshek, which could have been bought out for $500,000. Air Max 97 2018 . Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. Air Max 97 Womens Sale .com) - The women will also have a new champion at the Australian Open. http://www.cheapairmax97uk.org/air-max-97-valentines-day.html . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05 scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p. Formula One is on the verge of a multi-billion dollar takeover by John Malones Liberty Group, with a two-stage $8.5 billion deal expected to get underway on Tuesday.While Liberty and Malone have been linked with the purchase of an F1 stake -- controlling or otherwise -- since February 2014, on-going talks have reached a satisfactory conclusion, according to F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone.Speaking to reporters in the Monza paddock, the 85-year-old F1 czar was confident that the sports new owners would not affect his own position. I will do what I have always done, Auto Motor und Sport quoted Ecclestone as saying. What role I play is my decision.In the immediate future, there is no reason to expect much change in direction for F1. But the paddock rumour mill suggests that any guarantees of Ecclestones position remain in place for only the first tranche of the $8.5 billion handover; once the deal has been completed in full it is entirely possible that the man who turned Formula One into a billion-dollar business will find himself in a role more sinecure than senior.So what does the future hold for Formula One under its new owners?First and foremost, expect to see better marketing of F1 in the United States, home to Malones businesses and fortune. As the owner of a multimedia group that includes cable services provision, internet access, and direct-to-consumer sales, Malone is in a unique position when it comes to exploiting his existing businesses to maximise the value of his latest investment.And America is not the only market in which Malones companies hold sway: Liberty Media may be headquartered in Colorado, but through sister company Liberty Global and a 29 per cent stake in Discovery Communications, Malone is also a key media influencer on an international level.Historically, Malones purchases have increased in value after his acquisitions; the American businessman has targeted businesses with unrealised potential and added value before off-loading his stake for a profit. But Malone is no short-term operator: in the early 1990s he spotted the opportunities in digital cable services, and over the course of the following decade his businesses expanded into content creation as well as service delivery.While any $8.5 billion deal has to be seen as something of a gamble given the sums involved -- not forgetting that F1 has no guaranteed longevity beyond the 2020 expiry of the current round of Memoranda of Understanding that replaced the Concorde Agreement -- Malone would not be on the verge of doing the F1 deal had he not spotted opportunities for growth and profit within the sport.Perhaps the most obvious area for expansion is that of general marketing and promotion. The Formula One Group lacks a centralised marketing department, and the bulk of event promotion is done by individual host circuits as thhey attempt to drum up ticket sales in an attempt to claw back the cost of hosting a race. Air Max 97/1 Sean. There is no centralised cohesive effort to ensure that Formula One remains in the public imagination long after the F1 circus has left town, and little is done to create public anticipation in the run-up. Where such promotional events do take place, it is largely at the behest of individual teams and sponsors: Shell held a Sebastian Vettel fan event before the German Grand Prix in Hockenheim, while Petronas traditionally make the Mercedes drivers sing for their suppers at the twin towers in downtown Kuala Lumpur.If F1s new stakeholders want to get a return on their investment, they have to make the sport more profitable. The most obvious way to do so is to increase the size of the sports fanbase, both those watching at home and those attending grands prix in person.Bringing the sport back to terrestrial television is one way to improve the home audience, but as Malone is a man who made his millions off the back of the subscription TV explosion, it is unlikely that we will see the sport back on free-to-air channels at his behest. Instead it is in his interests to improve the general promotion of the sport so that those not currently interested in Formula One choose to pay their hard-earned cash to check it out, either in person or by subscribing to a service that airs it (preferably one owned by Malone, naturally).In America there is a fine tradition of selling both sport and show as separate entities. Millions of people with little-to-no interest in American football will tune into the Super Bowl for the infamous half-time show. Even high school sports use the lure of cheerleaders to entice the uninterested into the bleachers.This year the Circuit of the Americas provided a perfect example of using the show to boost the sport: COTA secured Taylor Swifts only concert of the year for their Saturday night post-qualifying entertainment, meaning that any tween within reach of Texas who wants to see her play live will need to fork out for a three-day race ticket whether or not they know what F1 is. It may not lead to packed grandstands once the tweens have left on Sunday, but the strong ticket sales have provided a boost to COTAs hopes of a long-term future.Expect to see similar -- and centralised -- efforts to promote the sport when Liberty Media take over. Drivers will be expected to do their part to drum up interest, with high-profile TV appearances in target markets, showcar stunts straight out of the Red Bull Guide to Self-Promotion, and a calendar designed in such a way that it becomes physically and geographically possible to use the sports stars to sell the spectacle. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

PISCATAWAY, N. Asics Gel Kayano 21 .J. -- No. 9 Penn State is a win away from getting a piece of its first conference title since 2011, the year Joe Paterno was fired.Tyler Davis kicked a career-high four field goals and the Nittany Lions stayed in the hunt for a berth in the Big Ten Conference title game with a 39-0 victory over Rutgers on Saturday night.The win kept Penn State tied for first place in the Big Ten East with Ohio State and Michigan, who face each other in Columbus, Ohio. If the Buckeyes win and the Nittany Lions take their home finale against Michigan State, Penn State goes to the title game, having beaten the Buckeyes in the regular season.When I was a freshman, I never thought with the sanctions that we would ever be in this type of position, and to be here with nine wins -- this is our first nine-win season since Ive been on the team. Im just really proud of it, fifth-year senior defensive end Evan Schwan said after Penn State (9-2, 7-1) won its seventh straight game, its longest streak since 11, the year the child sex abuse scandal broke involving one of Paternos former coaches.Penn State was never threatened in this one, which finished with rain and then sleet falling.Saquon Barkley and Andre Robinson scored on short third-quarter runs and the Nittany Lions defense limited Rutgers (2-9, 0-8) to 87 yards in total offense.Tight end Mike Gesicki said the team has not talked much about the postseason implications in recent weeks.We control our own destiny on Saturdays when we play whoever were playing and thats all we can control and thats all we care about, Gesicki said.Trace McSorley (17-of-33 for 210 yards) added a 27-yard scoring pass to Mark Allen and backup quarterback Tommy Stevens scored on a 12-yard run in the fourth quarter, when the Nittany Lions had 216 of their 549 yards in total offense.The loss was the eighth straight for Rutgers and rookie head coach Chris Ash, and the shutout was the fourth of the season. The last time Rutgers was shut out four times in a season was 1936, when it was blanked six straight games in a 1-6-1 season.This one hurt because it was Senior Day for the Scarlet Knights and they wanted to give their seniors a final win at home.Just want to thank our seniors, Ash said. Disappointing that Senior Night didnt end on a positive. Didnt give them an opportunity to leave their legacy in this football program and this university the way that we wanted.Penn State led 9-0 at the half and the story was Davis and the Nittany Lions defense.Davis hit from 32, 34 and 40 yards, the first two into a stiff wind. He added a 32-yarder early in the second half to push the lead to 19-0.The defense set the tone for the game after Penn State return man Miles Sanders muffed the opening kickoff and Rutgers recovered at the 19. Three plays lost seven yards and David Bonagura was wide right on a 45-yard field goal attempt.The defense has been better every week, Penn State linebacker Jason Cadinda said. We pitched a shutout, 80-something yards. Every week the confidence just builds and builds. We know what were capable of. Its as simple as that.Rutgers averaged less than two yards a play on its 50 offensive plays, finishing 1 of 14 on third-down attempts.Look at the stats, were not even one dimensional, Ash said.THE TAKEAWAYPenn State: While the Nittany Lions defense was outstanding, the offense did not do much until late. There also has to be concern because Barkley (16 carries for 92 yards) was dinged in the third quarter on a run inside the 10 and he did not return. Michigan State showed Saturday that it still had something in the tank despite a dreadful season and Penn State needs a healthy Barkley.Rutgers: The Scarlet Knights will get a chance to play spoiler again and give Ash his first Big Ten win. All they need to do is end Marylands bid for bowl eligibility.DUBIOUS RECORD: Rutgers Michael Cintron averaged 37.3 yards on 11 punts, including one that was blocked. He now has punted 89 times this season, a single-season record for a punter in the conference.UP NEXTPenn State: The Nittany Lions close out the conference regular season at home against Michigan State.Rutgers: The Scarlet Knights play at Maryland on Saturday.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Asics Aaron .

PHILADELPHIA -- Ryan Howard isnt the slugger he once was. He can still clear the fences, though.Howard homered and Maikel Franco singled home the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-2 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday night.Howard put Philadelphia in front 1-0 by leading off the second with a 428-foot drive to right-center off Mets starter Logan Verrett. It was the 13th homer of the season and the 370th of his career for Howard, who moved into a tie with Gil Hodges for 77th on the all-time list.Obviously, in the moment, youre playing a game, but when I get time to sit back and reflect on it, its actually pretty cool, some of the names that Im there with, Howard said. Ive still got some work to do, but Im going to enjoy this one today.Carlos Ruiz doubled and had two hits for the fourth-place Phillies, who have won 11 of 15. Philadelphia also silenced a large contingent of Mets fans, who sometimes made Citizens Bank Park sound more like Citi Field for the second straight night.It was a good win, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. I didnt want to hear the Mets fans.Jose Reyes and Travis dArnaud drove in the runs for the Mets, who have dropped four of five since All-Star slugger Yoenis Cespedes was injured.Were not taking care of opportunities, manager Terry Collins said. Weve got to take advantage of all those opportunities. We had a chance to add on and we didnt get it done.New York failed to homer for just the second time in the last 14 games. The Mets entered having hit 14 homers in four games at Citizens Bank Park this season and 33 long balls over the last two years at Philadelphias home park.The Mets appeared primed to take the lead in the top of the seventh, but pinch-hitter Kelly Johnson flied out to short left field with runners on second and third and one out before left fielder Cody Asche made an excellent sliding catch for the final out on Asdrubal Cabreras sinking liner with the bases loaded.Cespedes was available as a pinch-hitter, but Collins said he went with Johnson because Cespedes couldnt run the bases in the event of a walk.Philadelphia capitalized on Cabreras throwing error at shortstoop in the bottom half for the go-ahead run. Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Clearance. Cabrera threw wide of first baseman James Loney, allowing speedy Peter Bourjos to reach with one out. Bourjos went to second on Asches walk against Jerry Blevins (3-1) and scored on Francos single to left.I had all the time, said Cabrera, who has four errors this season. It happens.The Phillies tacked on a run in the eighth when Ruiz led off with a double, went to third on a groundout and scored on Erik Goeddels wild pitch.Edubray Ramos (1-0) worked a hitless inning for his first major league win. Jeanmar Gomez pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 25th save in 27 chances.The Mets tied it in the third on Reyes sacrifice fly that scored Juan Lagares.New York took a 2-1 lead in the fourth on dArnauds sacrifice fly before the Phillies tied it in the fifth on Asches groundout that scored pitcher Jerad Eickhoff.PHILLIES STARTING REPORTEickhoff allowed two runs and five hits with three strikeouts and one walk in six-plus innings. The right-hander singled and doubled to help his own cause.He really wasnt that sharp, but he pitched well enough to win, Mackanin said. Too many baserunners for my liking, but he got us into the seventh inning, so he did a good job that way.METS STARTING REPORTVerrett, making his seventh start in 25 appearances this season, gave up two runs and eight hits with four strikeouts and one walk in six innings. The right-hander is 1-4 with a 5.20 ERA as a starter this season. He took Matt Harveys spot in the rotation this month when the former ace was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome.I felt good, Verrett said. I felt like I threw the ball well and kept us in the ballgame.TRAINERS ROOMCespedes missed his fourth straight game due to a strained right quadriceps. Collins said the outfielder will undergo testing Sunday morning to determine if he is able to play.UP NEXTThe teams wrap up their three-game series Sunday when Mets RHP Jacob deGrom (5-4, 2.61 ERA) opposes RHP Zach Eflin (2-2, 4.08).

DENVER -- Starter Jon Gray pretended he was closing out the first inning. Tyeler Davison Jersey .Anything to avoid a pattern of early game hiccups.That particular approach served him well, too, with Gray pitching six scoreless innings to help the Colorado Rockies beat the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers 8-1 on a gusty Monday night.Gray (9-6) surrendered four hits and struck out eight in a crisp performance for his first win since Aug. 2.I feel like sometimes you can out-aggressive people. I like to do that, Gray said. Bring a little intensity and cruise from there.Gray started strong, which hasnt always been the case this season. Of the 72 runs he has allowed, 34 have been scored in the opening two innings.In this game, not even a third-inning downpour could interrupt his concentration.Gray ran into trouble in the fifth with two on and one out. Adrian Gonzalez sent a sinking liner to center that Charlie Blackmon hauled in as he slid on the slick grass. Gray pointed his glove toward the centerfielder in appreciation.That was awesome, Gray said. That really helped me out a lot.DJ LeMahieu had a two-run double in a five-run seventh that turned a pitching duel into a rout.Kenta Maeda (13-8) was electric once again at Coors Field -- except for a hanging slider that Nick Hundley hit for a two-run homer in the fourth. The right-hander with the quirky delivery allowed four hits over five innings. Maeda has a 2.12 ERA in three starts at the hitter friendly park.Overall, I thought I pitched pretty well, Maeda said through a translator. It was that one pitch which was a slider inside that was definitely a mistake pitch.The Dodgers had a momentary scare when All-Star rookie shortstop Corey Seager was hit in the left hand by a pitch from Chris Rusin in the seventh. He appeared to be in quite a bit of pain as he made his way to first base, but remained in the game. Seager was hit earlier in the game. The team said X-rays were negative.Seager wont play Tuesday, but that was already planned.It always hurts when you get hit, said Seager, whose team finished with five hits. Youre glad its not broken and you move on.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: LHP Clayton Kershaw (mild disk irritation) will face hitters in a simulated game on Tuesday in Los Angeles. A minor-league start may be the next step in his rehabilitation. We have a couple different scenarios. So, depending on how he comes out of it, well make a decision, manager Dave Roberts explained.Rockies: INF Mark Reynolds (broken bone in left hand) could return before the end of the season. Theres a lot still out in front of him that he has to be able to do before he gets into a game, manager Walt Weiss said.FANTASY DRAFTRoberts has a new player on his team -- Julio Jones, the game-changing receiver of the Atlanta Falcons. Jones may not help the Dodgers win the NL West, but could lift Roberts and his team to a fantasy football title.The Dodgers held their league draft in Denver on Sunday. Roberts is the silent partner on a squad co-owned by Justin Turner and Brandon McCarthy. They took Jones with the No. 2 overall pick.THIS & THATLast week, Maeda was optioned to the Arizona League Dodgers to free up roster space. He was recalled Monday and the team optioned right-handed pitcher Brock Stewart to Double-A Tulsa. ... Weiss said there wont be any conversations about a new contract until after the season. The fourth-year manager is in the final year of his deal. ...

DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers designated reliever Jose Valverde for assignment Friday, less than two months after bringing the veteran right-hander back to the major leagues for another chance to be the teams closer. Cheap Air Max 90 China . Valverde went 0-1 with a 5.59 ERA, converting nine saves in 12 chances. The Tigers will likely use Joaquin Benoit in most save situations for the time being. Detroit has 10 days to trade, release or send Valverde outright to the minors. "We have asked him if he would go to Triple-A for us, and try to work with him there, try to get him straightened out," general manager Dave Dombrowski said. "He did not give us an answer on that. It really doesnt make a difference at this point, since we would still have to get waivers at some time. He was open-minded to it. He didnt say no to it, but he needed some time." The Tigers recalled right-hander Al Alburquerque from Triple-A Toledo to replace Valverde in the bullpen. They also put outfielder Matt Tuiasosopo on the disabled list with a strained left ribcage and recalled outfielder Avisail Garcia from Toledo. The 35-year-old Valverde faltered during the 2012 post-season, and the Tigers were prepared to let him leave via free agency. But he didnt sign anywhere else, and Detroit eventually brought him back on a minor league deal. He was called up to the majors in late April and allowed only one run through his first 12 appearances, but has not looked good at all lately. "We think we have a guy that can still close games for us, if we get him fixed," Dombrowski said. "His velocitys been fine. Of course, he hasnt had his (split-fingered fastball) and hes had command problems. The last couple weeks havent been good. Before that, he threw the ball fine, and thats what were hoping that we can get back. We figure we have nothing to lose to try." Detroit entered the season without much stability at closer when hard-throwing rookie Bruce Rondon failed to win the job during spring training. Benoit is 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA and four saves, and Drew Smyly has also pitched well out of the bullpen. "Benoit, when available, healthy and ready to go and rested, will get most of the closing opportunities," manager Jim Leyland said. "And anything else, well mix and match." Octavio Dotel has hardly pitched this year because of right elbow inflammation. Alburquerque was sent down because of control problems, but he has 26 strikeouts in 14 1-3 innings for Detroit, and the Tigers hope he can give the bullpen a lift now. Dombrowski didnt want to look ahead to the possibility of a trade for help. "Were comfortable with this group right now," he said. The Tigers arent the only team that could use some help in relief. In fact, Detroit won Thursday nights game on a ninth-inning homer by Jhonny Peralta off Bostons Andrew Bailey. The Red Sox are now giving Bailey a break from closing. Manager John Farrell said Koji Uehara would be the choice Friday night if a closer were needed. "If you look out there right now, there are not a lot of shut-down, lock-down closers out there -- anywhere," Dombrowski said. "A lot of people have struggled with the back end of their bullpens." Leyland said he hopes Valverde decides to stay in the organization, but he wasnt about to pressure him publicly. "Whichever way he wants to go, I would respect," Leyland said. White Air Max 90 Shoes . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. Wholesale Air Max 90 2018 .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. http://www.cheapairmax90sale.com/ . Q: Team Canada announces their Olympic roster three weeks from today. Who is general manager Steve Yzerman watching? LeBrun: Over the last 48 hours, hes taken in the home-and-home between the Dallas Stars and Colorado Avalanche with Jamie Benn and Matt Duchene being the obvious targets. Sydney FC have locked in the first of several off-contract players, re-signing talented young midfielder Brandon ONeill for a further two A-League seasons.ONeill opted to remain with the Sky Blues until the end of the 2018-19 campaign, despite form thats believed to have attracted interest from other clubs including former side Perth.My game has developed so much in my first 18 months with the club and thats thanks to the help and support of the people here as well as my teammates, the 22-year-old said.Im looking forward to spending the next two years of my career here and winning some silverware.Table-topping Sydney will look to tie down another dozen players off contract, as talks continue over a new deal for coach Graham Arnold.Arnold said ONeill had all the attributes to become a top-class midfielder, as evidenced through his successful partnership with this season Josh Brillante.He is a role model for any young and aspiring player out there and Im certain he will see further success and recognition in his career, Arnold said.In less positive news, striker Matt Simon will miss Saturdays away clash with Perth after being hit with a one-matcch ban for serious unsporting conduct against Melbourne Citys Michael Jakobsen. Red Air Max 90 2018. Simon appeared to throw his shoulder into Jakobsens head during one of several fiery confrontations with the Danish defender late in Friday nights 1-1 draw at ANZ Stadium.Referee Kris Griffiths-Jones did not sanction the 30-year-old forward during the game but the match review panel found enough reason to issue him a show-cause notice on Monday.While the Sky Blues lodged a submission on his behalf, the panel ruled Simons behaviour constituted serious unsporting conduct and warranted a one-match suspension.Sydney chief executive Tony Pignata said the outcome was disappointing.We felt he didnt have a case to answer, Pignata said.But we accept the decision and we move on.With Simon being a regular substitute for Sydney FC, it means David Carney or George Blackwood are set to move to the bench for the Glory match.Sydney will also be missing Brillante, sent off during the City game, and likely to be replaced by Milos Dimitrijevic. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
