Stanford has a lot at stake in t from mary123's blog

CHICAGO -- Dale Sveum doesnt know if hell be coming back for a third season as manager of the Chicago Cubs. Sveum is under contract to return for 2014. But team president Theo Epstein has said all jobs will be evaluated after another losing season. "Im not going to sit here and lie that youre not wondering whats going to happen in four to five days from now. Thats just human nature," Sveum said Wednesday before the Cubs game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. "Theres nothing you can do about it, or control those decisions. You just keep plugging away. Theres nothing you can do about it." Sveum was hired by Epstein before the 2012 season as the Cubs started a major rebuilding project. Though Chicagos minor-league system has improved, the major league team has struggled as the club has shed long-term contracts and gone with younger players. Sveum expects to hear about his future shortly after the season ends Sunday. "Thats part of the gig," Sveum said, "is knowing the day after the season." This season, Cubs have dealt veteran pitchers Matt Garza and Scott Feldman and longtime left fielder Alfonso Soriano, among others. With those experienced players gone, the Cubs were looking to some of their youngsters to take a step forward, but that hasnt happened. Starlin Castro has slumped to a .243 average, Anthony Rizzo is hitting .230 and Jeff Samardzija has an 8-12 record. On Tuesday, the Cubs fell to 65-93, clinched their first last-place finish since 2006, and lost a team-record 50th game at home. In two years, Sveum has a 126-194 record. Sveum seemed to know what he was signing on for in fall 2011. "We needed to get our minor league system much healthier and hit the jackpot on some free agents that we sign and things like that," Sveum said. "So nothings really changed that I was told or anything like that. Youre never promised anything." He might not be in Chicago anymore when touted prospects like Javier Baez and Kris Bryant make it to Wrigley. "Thats why you take these jobs when you know things are not going to be all that good at the beginning, and the development part. You hope youre around for when things turn around. Theres no question," Sveum said. "Thats what we do this for -- to win and be here when were getting ready to be very competitive." <a href="">Asics Gel Saga</a>. With his new coach and six-time Grand Slam singles champion Boris Becker watching him during an official match for the first time, Djokovic appeared tentative early against the Slovakian player, who often appeared content to keep the ball in play. <a href="">Asics Gel Lyte III Rosse</a>. That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. <a href=""></a>. PAUL, Minn. <a href="">Asics Gel Lyte III Nere</a>. -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. <a href="">Asics Gel Lyte V Nere</a>. Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance.Fans of blowouts rejoice, Week 4 of the NCAA football schedule is going to be full of them. Several top teams are taking on FCS opponents, leading to a thin schedule and several large spreads. No. 7 Louisville and No. 13 UCLA are each laying 40+ points in their matchups. Basically its a great weekend for Heisman candidates to pad their stats. But amongst the carnage that is the Week 4 schedule there is one matchup that could be worth keeping a close eye on. The Arizona State Sun Devils jumped into the Top 25 with a win over Wisconsin and their “make or break” stretch of the schedule continues against the fifth-ranked Stanford Cardinal. Beating Wisconsin is one thing, and upcoming games against USC and Notre Dame could be winnable too, meaning the Sun Devils have a chance to spend some weeks in the Top 25, but Stanford is a differennt beast, and should halt Arizona States momentum before it gains too much traction.dddddddddddd After a less than dominant win over Army last week, Stanford has a lot at stake in this game too. With No. 3 Clemson looking ordinary in their win over North Carolina State on Thursday, the Cardinal could make a jump in the rankings with a big win over the Sun Devils. Action on TSN 2 – Purdue at No. 24 Wisconsin, Saturday at 3:30pm et/12:30pm pt Its a Big 10 showdown as the Purdue Boilermakers travel to the No. 24 Wisconsin Badgers. The Badgers were lucky to stick in the Top 25 after their loss last week to the aforementioned Sun Devils, but should have an easier road this week opening conference play against Purdue. Wisconsin opened the year with two shutout wins and with a spread in the mid-20s, could make it three of four. <a href="">Wholesale Jerseys</a>  <a href="">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="">Authentic Jerseys From China</a> <a href="">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> ' ' '
