I think the Fantasy owners who are willing to gamble on first baseman  on Draft Day will be rewarded in 2013.

He homered for the second time in as many games Sunday, running his spring total to three in 13 games. He also has 11 RBI and is batting .282 (11 for 39). And let’s not forget what he did in his limited time with Team Canada in the World Baseball Classic. Morneau hit .636 (7 for 11) with three doubles, three RBI and four runs in three games.

Durability issues have been a problem for Morneau since 2009 and have hurt his Fantasy appeal. Though, you have to be encouraged with the way Morneau is playing this spring after his strong finish to the 2012 season. Morneau hit .296 with a .356 OBP and .800 OPS in his last 78 games. The only thing lacking was his power numbers (nine home runs and 14 doublg world-class talent, says the Football Association’s Kelly Simmons, reports BBC Sport.English top-flight sides are currently permitted to spend 40% of their turnover on wages, under FA rules.The USA’s NWSL has upped its salary cap by nearly 20% to $es in that span), which is obviously a key category for FantasBury, it has been revealed.Kenwright offered £1million of his own money to help save the doomed League One club.The out-of-the-blue offer from the 74-year-old was made over a phone call between Kenwright and English Football League boss Debbie Jevany f has denied suggestions the winter break has affected their form after a scratchy win over West Ham.With a narrow victory over rock-bottom Norwich City and defeat to Atletico Madrid having preceded last night’s result, Liverpool have struggled to reairst basemen. 

It’s tough to put Morneau up there with the elite Fantasy options because of his health concerns and the numbers of burgeoning options at first base, but I think Fantasy owners will be happy with Morneau’s production in 2013, if he can stay healthy.

There’s no denying first baseman  has had his struggles against left-handed pitchers the last two seasons. He hit .163 against lefties in 2011 and .174 off lefties last season, but it hasn’t always been that way for the 25-year-old slugger.

Phillies’ Amaro has faith in Delmon Young: ‘He’s not an anti Semite’

took nearly a 90 percent pay cut in guaranteed dollars after a year in which he hit 18 home runs and 74 RBI at age 26, had a 1.000-plus OPS in both the ALCS and World Series and won the ALCS MVP.

And he may be lucky to get what he got.

No, it’s not mostly because he is disliked by the statistics crowd for his extremely low 0.6 lifetime WAR (and worse -1.2 this past season). The real issue is an incident in New York early last season that led to him pleading guilty to aggravated assault in a hate crime.

general manager Ruben Amaro agreed to sign Young to a $750,000 guaranteed deal (down from the $6.75 millon he made with the last year), but not until after many interviews regarding Young’s character, Amaro said in a phone interview with CBSSports. Amaro Lampard has shrugged off claims from Jason Cundy.Former Chelsea player and now radio presenter Cundy said every team bar Manchester City and Liverpool would want to be Chelsea at the moment, with an icon as manager, good results and lots of young taladmitted that the incident was a “big part” of the consideration as he weighed whether to gamble on Young.

Amaro said he talked to rabbis from Philadelphia and Detroit (the Detroit rabbi knows Young well, according to Amaro), the Philadelphia Anti Defamation League and Young himself before giving the player a chance.

“I certainly feel comfortable with the due diSouthampton have secured a raft of young players to new deals.Nathan Tella, Dan N’Lundulu, Oludare Olufunwa and Kieran Freeman have all put pen to paper on fresh terms at the club.Forward pairing Tella and N’Lundulu have signed one-year contract exteligence we put together. But it’s really up to Delmon to prove us right,” Amaro said.

Amaro was a particularly interesting GM to make this decision, given his own background.

“I’m part Jewish, so it’s a concern to me,” said Amaro, a 2009 inductee into the Philadelphia Jewish Hall of Fame whose mother is Jewish.

Ultimately, Amaro concluded that Young shouldn’t be kept from employment with them based on one incident, no matter how ugly. Young was said by police to have uttered an anti-Semitic slur while rles says they should’ve pushed harder for Totteham ace Christian Eriksen.United legend Scholes admits he would have loved the Dane to join his former club.”I was quite excited when Christian Eriksen got mentioned,” Scholes told Robbie Savage’s Premieoughing up a tourist (who turned out not to be Jewish) in Manhattan on April 27, 2012. Young, who had no prior arrests, was sentenced to 10 days of community service and suspended seven days by .

“He’s not an anti-Semite. He made a mistake,” Amaro said. “Hopefully, he can move on from that.”

Amaro pointed out that Young’s two agents, Arn Tellem and Joel Wolfe, are Jewish. But the key for Amaro was a meeting with Young a few weeks back. Amaro said it was a “very long” meeting.

“I got a good feel for the player,” Amaro said.

The Phillies have looked at several corner outfielders this winter, including , who signed with the , , who is still a free agent, and trade targets Alfonso Soriano and . Young gives them a proven run producer at the right price (he reportedly can make $3.5 million if he hits his incentives).

Young allows the Phillies to stay under the luxury tax threshold (they finished last year a few hundred thousand below that limit). While they may have a few dollars left, Amaro indicated he’s not uncomfortable going with the seven outfielders he now has for three spots, with trade acquisition set in center field, Young favored to take right field, and youngsters Jr., , and others vying for playing time.

Amaro said their reports suggest Young will do better in right field than left, where he struggled mightily the past two years with Detroit, contributing to his awful WAR numbers. The Phillies see Young improving since there’s no DH option for them.

“We’re hopeful he can come back and be much better defensively than he was the last couple years,” Amaro said.

Young also had an ankle procedure that should help his range, though Amaro admitted it may mean he won’t be ready for Opening Day.

“We’re not going to rush him,” Amaro said.

The expectation, though, is that Young will do enough to be the team’s right fielder, and there’s hope he could even fill the spot of the righthanded-hitting No. 5 hitter they’ve been seeking. Amaro pointed out he filled such a role for the AL champion Tigers. Young, still only 27, had 112 RBI in 2010 for the .

Young filled his role best in the postseason, and three more postseason homers made it a Tigers career record eight for him. He had 1.186 OPS in the ALCS to win the MVP award, then a 1.043 OPS in the World Series.

Amaro see the Phillies marriage as one that can be “mutually beneficial.”

In more ways than one, Young certainly has a lot to prove.

The pain of another World Series loss could linger long for the Tigers

“It’s a raging fire now,” the best pitcher in baseball said, a little while after the finished proving that Verlander’s still aren’t the best team in baseball.It’s a funny thing about this game, maybe about any game. The further you go, the better you do, the bigger the disappointment if you don’t take it all the way.Thes he wants to be playing regular Champions League football.He told Goal: “We always want to level up and all players dream of playing in the Champions League. It’s a big competition and it’s good to have been followed by these kind of clubs. These ar Tigers aren’t losers, and their season didn’t end in disarray. But sometimes the disappointment of falling just short can be worse than the disappointment of not coming close at all.”Anytime you’re close to the goal you want and you don’t get it, it hurts more,” said.The Tigers’ season ended with no excuses. They didn’t lose because of bad luck or a long layoff. They lost because when it counted, their big guys didn’t hit, and for the most part their little guys didn’t, either.They lost because Verlander gave up two big home runs to in the first three innings of Game 1, and the Tigers never recovered. They never led a game until the third inning of Game 4, and even that lead only held up for three innings.They put up about the same amount of fight as the put up against them in the ALCS, the only difference being the lack of any real drama, -style.”There was nothing fluky about it,” manager Jim Leyland said. “We got our ass kicked. We got to the heavyweight fight, and we got knocked out.”Leyland spoke for a while about how the Tiger culture has changed in the seven years since he arrived. He took over a team that had gone 13 years without a winning season, and in seven years since has been to three American League Championship Series and two World Series.”It’s been great,” he said. “It’s been fun.”He never said it would continue. He never spoke about the future.In fact, if there was any sense of finality about this World Series loss, it was that it ended with more uncertainty than ever that the 67-year-old Leyland will return for another year.With him or without him, the Tigers could well be back. Their key players are signed or under control, and Victor Martinez will be back after missing all of this season after knee surgery.As always, they’ll have owner Mike Ilitch’s money available, and they’ll have the drive that comes with having an 83-year-old owner who badly wants a World Series ring.”The same team’s going to be here — with more,” Fielder said. “That’s a plus.”It was back in January, when the Tigers signed Fielder, that people seriously began talking about the Tigers as a team that could win the World Series — or as a team that should win the World Series.They went on to spend most of the season chasing the and/or the in the weak American League Central, and never seemed able to relax until they finally did make it to the playoffs.The no-doubt high point arrived 10 days ago, with the four-game sweep of the Yankees, but it was followed quickly by five days without a game and then by the four straight losses to the Giants.We’ll never know for sure whether the layoff had anything to do with the Tigers’ lack of hitting against the Giants (or with Verlander’s out-of-sync, out-of-character bad outing in Game 1). , who played on the 2006 team that lost the World Series after a long layoff, stood in the Tiger clubhouse late Sunday night and lamented the similarities.Whether it was that or whether it was simply the Giants’ strong pitching, the Tigers ended the World Series feeling that the world hadn’t seen them at close to their best.”They played perfectly,” catcher said. “We just couldn’t keep up.”The big focus will be on Fielder, whose Game 1 single was his only hit in 14 World Series at-bats, and on , the Triple Crown winner whose two-run home run in the third inning Sunday was his only real World Series moment.But just as in 2006, when the Tigers hit .199 and scored just 11 runs in a five-game World Series loss to the , this was a team failure, with a .159 team batting average and just six runs in four games.The Tigers’ pitching was good enough that when they briefly took a 2-1 lead in Game 4, they began to dream of a miracle comeback. Verlander was set to pitch in a Game 5, and (who carried a shutout through six innings of Game 2) was ready to return in a Game 6.”There wasn’t a doubt in my mind,” Verlander said.Not a doubt, even though no team had ever recovered from a three games to one World Series hole, even though the record now shows that 21 of the 24 teams that have fallen behind three games to none haven’t even made it to Game 5.”We had a good chance to win it all,” Verlander said — and yes, he was talking about winning it all after losing the first three.At 29, Verlander has accomplished plenty, from Rookie of the Year to Most Valuable Player and Cy Young Award winner in the same season. He’s been an All-Star starting pitcher (although it didn’t go well), and he has twice started Game 1 of the World Series (which hasn’t gone well, either).What he hasn’t done is what the Tigers haven’t done since 1984.He knows it. He feels it.”Absolutely,” he said. “There’s definit after completing a switch to Inter Milan.The Italian side paid £74m to get the deal over the line.Following the deadline day announcement, Lukaku tweeted a thank you message to everyone involved with the Red Devils.To everyone involved with Manchesely a burning fire to win it all. The only thing that takes that away is to win it.”And the only United great Ryan Giggs believes Marcus Rashford would’ve loved to have played alongside Eric Cantona.Cantona helped Giggs reach his potential when they were teammates at United.And the Wales coach told Bleacher Report: “He was just different. You sthing that makes it worse is to come all this way, and then lose it.Months from now, perhaps even days from now, the Tigers will look back on 2012 as a good year. There’s no other way to see it, when you win a pennant, when you’re one of the final two teams standing.”It would be very tough to look back at this year as a negative,” Verlander said. But it will oh so easy to look back and feel the pain of watching the Giants rush the field at Comerica Park when it ended.”That’s something that’s going to be etched in my mind,” Avila said. “The thing is, we do have the team to get back here.”They have no choice now. They have no choice but to find a way back.As every other team that loses a World Series would tell you — as Verlander would tell you about 2006 — the pain of losing won’t go away quickly.It may never leave, unless or until they win.
