so they could afford to push Chacins throwing session back from wxy1123's blog

VAL ST. Authentic John Wall Jersey . COME, Que. -- Alex Bilodeau is afraid of where all this momentum could be taking him. Bilodeau won his third straight World Cup moguls event Sunday, edging out teammate and rival Mikael Kingsbury. A showdown at next months Winter Games between Bilodeau, the reigning Olympic champion, and Kingsbury, the defending world champion, has the Rosemere, Que., native worried about when the intensity peaks in Sochi, Russia. "I need to admit Im a bit afraid of where were heading towards," said Bilodeau. "Every race were pushing the limit, were pushing and pushing. ... "If we continue to push before the Olympics its going to be a nice show because I dont know where its going." Canada finished Sundays competition with four medals after Chloe Dufour-Lapointe and her sister Justine took first and second place, respectively, in the womens event. Bilodeau won with a score of 26.49, while Kingsbury, from Deux-Montagnes, Que., followed at 25.66. Bradley Wilson of the United States was third. Bilodeau, now four years removed from being the first Canadian to win gold on home soil, said he doesnt take the pairs success for granted with the Olympics so close. "If we continue to push each other theres a myriad of scenarios that could come down. We could both do big mistakes also and come to the back of the field but hopefully it wont come to that point," he said. "But were two pretty constant skiers and we should make it down with no mistakes, and Mikael is a very consistent skier without doing any mistakes here or there, so I need to be on top of my game." Chloe Dufour-Lapointe meanwhile maintained shes the picture of calm after the Montreal natives latest win. She took gold with a score of 23.79, while Justine Dufour-Lapointe followed at 22.51 ahead of Japans Junko Hoshino. Chloe Dufour-Lapointe is heading to her second Olympics after finishing ninth in 2010. With nothing to compete for between now and the Winter Games, she said she wont be losing sleep during the wait. "Im not nervous at all," she said. "Yeah, for sure, its the Olympics, its going to be big, but Im expecting this for my second time on the Olympics team. Every single event that I did this year I was working on the process and to be able to go to Sochi and get the best that I can do." Markieff Morris Jersey .J. -- The New York Giants placed starting centre David Baas on injured reserve Wednesday after he sustained his third injury this season. Authentic Juwan Howard Jersey . After going 10-6 in 2012, the Vikings regressed this year, done in by a leaky defence and an ongoing inability to find stability at quarterback. Frazier finished 21-33-1 in three-plus seasons. DENVER -- The San Diego Padres restored their offensive pop with the help of a little pregame pep talk. Meeting as an offensive unit, the Padres hatched a simple plan of attack: If theyre going to mess up at the plate, at least mess up being aggressive. The new approach worked wonders as the Padres pounded out a season-high 14 hits to snap a four-game skid with a 7-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night. Chase Headley tied a team record with three doubles, and Nick Hundley drove in three runs. Up and down the lineup, the Padres were knocking the ball all over the yard, smacking seven doubles. All this from the worst-hitting team in the NL -- at least for now. "We just talked a little bit about relaxing and understanding that you play a 162-game season," Headley said. "While it looks really, really ugly right at the moment, theres a long ways to go. "But it was nice to have some breathing room." Cory Luebke (1-1) provided that, throwing seven efficient innings as he breezed through the Rockies lineup on a brisk night. He allowed just six hits and one run. "Offence did a good job setting the tone early," Luebke said. "They just went out and took a little pressure off." Jeremy Guthrie (1-1) was feeling under the weather, but gave it a go despite a sore throat. With the bullpen taxed from so much recent work, Guthrie really had no choice but to hang in there as long as possible. The righty allowed six runs and nine hits before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the seventh. "That was one of the focuses -- getting deep and trying to compete and giving the team a chance to win," Guthrie explained. "I wasnt able to do that, but I was able to get deep. Thats important at this point." Gold Glove shortstop Troy Tulowitzki remains in a fielding funk for the Rockies as he committed his fourth error of the season on a hard grounder by Luebke, which led to a run. He had only six miscues all of last season. Not that manager Jim Tracy seemed all that concerned about his typically reliable infielder. "Its just one of those things in the early part of the season that you have to let the ebb and flow take place and let him get into a groove," Tracy said. "Tulos one of the guys whos searching to find some things and you have to allow that situation to happen. Michael Jordan Wizards Jersey. Thats all." Colorado scored in the second when Tyler Colvin singled in Michael Cuddyer. That would be all the damage Luebke allowed. The lefty was even permitted to work his way out of a jam in his last inning. With two on and two out, Luebke got pinch-hitter Jason Giambi to ground out to end the threat. "Those types of at bats are stepping stones for young pitchers," manager Bud Black said. "It was a great hitter against a good young pitcher. He won the battle." Headley had a solid game against the team he grew up idolizing. Hes from nearby Fountain, Colo., and always seems to hit well at Coors Field. Then again, he hits well at all stops on the road -- hitting .304 away from home. "To be honest with you, Ive been feeling pretty good for the last three or four days," Headley said. "I finally got a few pitches to hit today and was able to square them up." Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez missed a third straight game with strep throat. He said his strength is steadily returning, maybe even enough to play on Tuesday night. "I dont feel 100 per cent yet, but getting better each day," he said before the game. With their bullpen stretched thin, the Rockies needed Guthrie to go deep into the game. The relievers have already thrown 36 innings this season. Guthrie took one for the team, throwing 103 pitches. Just in case, Tracy held off on starter Jhoulys Chacins bullpen session Monday, preferring to wait to see if he might be needed in an emergency. The Rockies have a day off later in the week, so they could afford to push Chacins throwing session back. Before the game, San Diego activated utility player Mark Kotsay from the 15-day disabled list. The 36-year-old signed with the Padres last November, but missed the opening 10 games of the season due to a strained right calf muscle. NOTES: To make room on the roster for Kotsay, the Padres optioned RHP Brad Brach to Triple-A Tucson on Monday. ... Rockies LHP Jorge De La Rosa tossed 60 pitches a four-inning simulated game on Monday. Hes still mending from elbow surgery that sidelined him last season. ... The Rockies broke ground over the weekend on a baseball academy in the Dominican Republic. The academy will cost around $6 million.
