batting for starting pitcher Freddy Garcia from miao1234's blog

The next morning pulling up to the world famous Metropolis was as exciting as it was the very first time we played there! This venue holds so many memories for the band and so many pillars within our career that it keeps a special place in our heart. Nike Air Force 1 Baratas España . Its very difficult to explain what Montreal means to the band - for many years it was home to both of JM, and to Stuart… Subsequently making it a second home for me, as I was traveling up there every week to work on material, especially during the Transmission, and Triptych years. I was literally bouncing off the bus walls… I made my way inside as I usually do when we first arrive at a venue to scope it out when it is empty. I imagined all of the crazy friends and fans losing it to the show later that night.Later we headed off to CHOM FM for a quick video chat, then into see one of the most respected on air personalities of our time, Mr. TooTall! Its always good to get a blessing from the rock n roll doctor himself… Feel better TooTall!The show that night did not miss a single step… From sound, to lights, to the band, to the fan reaction, it was truly outstanding! For me this show fell in the top five of all time… There, yes, I said it… Of all time! Simply unbelievable…Following the show is also a great moment in Montreal because of the smoked meat sandwiches we bring in for our technical crew and band. God bless Schwartz!I tell you, I really dont like having to go to sleep at 2 AM, only to be woken up at 4 AM to clear immigration to get into the US. But, in all honesty it wasnt bad at all… As a matter of fact, it was the easiest border crossing with the band I have ever, ever completed. When you live in a border town next to Detroit, any other border crossing seems like a cakewalk. I understand that they have a very serious job to do, but sometimes it is so over-the-top with the questions when youre literally going to a hockey or baseball game with tickets in hand. Our tour manager was ready for all the questions and had all of our papers and passports in order, so we were literally the only people in the Watertown area border crossing and it flew through in around 20 minutes. Back to bed!What a sleep!… I dont know what happened there, but I got an extra six or seven hours all the way to Buffalo! This is some kind of weird record for OL JB...I was very happy to see the streets of Buffalo look almost completely bare of snow… What a crazy week this poor community has had! We had some friends down at our sound check at The Town Ballroom. I dont know if my eyes are deceiving me, but this club does not look like it can hold 1000+ people...this is going to be absolutely ridiculous tonight!Once again, the band killed it live… I hope I really dont come off sounding like Im boasting, because Im not… We are just simply killing it lately. We are back, we are definitely back. After the show I went directly back onto the bus to dry off. Some of our friends came on and I decided to crank up the tunes and have a front lounge dance party… No kidding...dance party. No, I cant dance, but I sure look funny trying. No, there are no pictures of me trying! ;)Once loadout was complete in Buffalo, the bus had to roll so we got dropped off at our hotel as the band was going to fly to Winnipeg the next day. After one and a half hours sleep, we headed to the Buffalo airport to fly to Winnipeg.Ill come back with more details of our days off and press day in Winnipeg in a few days. Until then be safe, be cool, and do something nice for someone.L.A.M.F.JB Comprar Nike Roshe Run Mujer Baratas . Notable pairings include Weyburn, Saskatchewans Graham DeLaet with Trevor Immelman and Oliver Goss at 12:31pm et on Thursday, and 2003 Masters champion Mike Weir of Brights Grove, Ontario with Matt Every and Roberto Castro at 9:02am et. Nike Air Max 90 Hombre Baratas . -- The first full day at the Masters turned out to be a short one Monday.LOS ANGELES -- As the celebration raged around them, Sandy Koufax sought out Clayton Kershaw in the hazy mist of the clubhouse for a hug. Koufax, whose blazing fastball dominated baseball in the mid-1960s, removed the protective goggles from his eyes and rested his arms on Kershaws broad shoulders. From the franchises old left-handed ace to its current young southpaw, a smiling Koufax looked Kershaw in the eyes and bestowed his congratulations. The Dodgers had advanced to their 10th National League championship series with a 4-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday night. "To get a hug and get a good job from a guy like that, from a guy thats been there, from a guy thats done this before and was the best at it for a long time is pretty special," Kershaw said. "He genuinely cares about not only this team but kind of our well-being. He cares about us. Thats awesome." The NL West champions open the next round Friday against St. Louis or Pittsburgh. The Cardinals host the wild-card Pirates in a winner-take-all Game 5 on Wednesday. "Weve moved one step closer," said Don Mattingly, managing in the playoffs for the first time. Juan Uribe hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning after Kershaw started on short rest for the Dodgers, who reached the NLCS for the first time since 2009. "It was a special night to get to do it here in L.A.," said Kershaw, his hair slick from the spray of beer and champagne. "We havent won anything yet, but it definitely feels good to get to celebrate. You never want to pass those moments up." Carl Crawford homered his first two times up and the Dodgers won the best-of-five playoff 3-1. "This does not get old. I love the champagne. I love the burning sensation in my eyes," centre fielder Skip Schumaker said. "A lot of these guys have never experienced the moving on to the next round and Im happy for them." Yasiel Puig doubled down the right-field line leading off the eighth against losing pitcher David Carpenter. The rookie charged into second base and pumped his right fist in the air. Fans were on their feet chanting "Lets go Dodgers!" when Uribe fouled off two bunt attempts. Then he sent a hanging 2-2 breaking ball into the Dodgers bullpen in left field to put them in front for the second time. Uribe knew it was gone as soon as he connected. He dropped his bat and threw both arms in the air at home plate. "This moment today Ill never forget," he said. "I think a lot of people feel like that." Meanwhile, it was the latest October flop for Atlanta, which hasnt won a post-season series since 2001. During that stretch, the Braves have lost seven straight playoff series and the 2012 NL wild-card game. "To end the way it did tonight, its going to hurt. Its going to be a long way back," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "But tip your hat to the Dodgers and congratulate Donnie and his staff. The sad thing is there are no more games, you know?" Brian Wilson pitched a scoreless eighth to get the victory. Kenley Jansen struck out all three batters in the ninth for a save, fanning Justin Upton to end it. That set off a raucous celebration on the field by the Dodgers, who rushed toward the mound in a mob. They tore jerseys off eachh other in unbridled excitement and doused Uribe with a bright-colored sports drink. Nike Free Run 2 España. "This team has a lot of fun. We dont think about being the team to beat and all that stuff. We just go out there and play and try to have fun," Crawford said. Jansen and catcher A.J. Ellis leaped into each others arms, and a burst of fireworks lit the sky in centre field as blue and silver streamers cascaded from an upper level of the stadium. The Dodgers lined up exchanging hugs in the infield, and co-owners Mark Walter and Magic Johnson grinned watching the revelry among the team they purchased last year. Kershaw, Puig, Wilson and other players jogged around the warning track exchanging high-fives and hand slaps with delirious fans. "They were loud," Kershaw said. "They want it just as much as we do." The Dodgers were criticized for jumping into the ballpark pool in Arizona when they clinched the NL West crown last month. This time, they got to party at home. The Braves took a 3-2 lead in the seventh on pinch-hitter Jose Constanzas RBI single off reliever Ronald Belisario. Needing a win to avoid elimination, Gonzalez never got the ball to lights-out closer Craig Kimbrel. "You dont want it to ever end the way we ended today. But we had the right guy out there. Carp has been good for us," Gonzalez said. "There is nothing to be ashamed of." The Dodgers gambled in bringing back Kershaw on three days rest for the first time in his career. But with a chance to close out the series, they opted for their ace over scheduled starter Ricky Nolasco. The move paid off when the 2011 Cy Young Award winner tossed six solid innings before turning it over to the bullpen. "This is the post-season," Kershaw said. "You just go. Its a one-month sprint and Im looking forward to the next couple games." Kershaw wasted a 2-0 lead, giving up two unearned runs and three hits. He struck out six and walked one on 91 pitches. With one out in the seventh, Elliot Johnson tripled into the right-field corner, sending Puig sliding into the dirt chasing the ball as it caromed off the wall. Constanza, batting for starting pitcher Freddy Garcia, singled into centre to put the NL East champions ahead for the first time. Garcia allowed two runs and eight hits in six innings. He struck out six and walked two. The Braves tied it 2-all in the fourth. Crawfords second homer of the game came in the third, landing deep in the lower right-field seats for a 2-0 lead. Crawford led off the first with a towering home run to the right-field pavilion, smiling broadly as the Dodgers took a 1-0 lead. "The smile on his face when he hit that homer is priceless," Mattingly said. NOTES: The Dodgers lost in five games to Philadelphia four years ago in the NLCS. ...
