longest out-of-conference trips this team will make include New York for a Thanksgiving week tournament and a December trip to M Antworten

WASHINGTON -- Bryce Harper is out of the Washington Nationals lineup for the second consecutive game because of a stiff neck.Harper has not played since leaving the Nationals game Saturday against the San Francisco Giants. Chris Heisey was in right field Tuesday night against the Cleveland Indians.Manager Dusty Baker said Harper was dealing with the same problem, which the reigning National League MVP said mightve come as a result of sleeping wrong.We were hoping that these couple days (would help), Baker said. A stiff neck, hes been getting worked on and stuff. Anybody thats had a stiff neck realizes how tough that is, especially to swing.Other than saying Harper was day-to-day, Baker didnt have any other details on the injury. The Nationals appear to be playing it safe given their sizeable lead atop the NL East and Harpers value in the short and long term.We suggested he shut it down because he could be making it worse, said Baker, who believes the stiffness is on the left side of Harpers neck. Just have to wait to see. I dont have any more to tell you. I know its big news, but I dont want to just make up something.The 23-year-old is hitting .233 with 20 home runs, 57 RBI and a league-leading 82 walks this season. Custom Allen Iverson Jersey . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010. The match was similar to Isners quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of serve. Cheap Custom Grizzlies Jersey .Y. -- Injured Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno did not practice with the team Monday and head coach Ron Rolston said its unlikely hell play in Wednesdays season opener in Detroit. . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue. Wholesale Custom Grizzlies Shirts . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in. Custom Grizzlies Jerseys . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. AUSTIN, Texas -- Shaka Smarts first season at Texas pumped new life into the Longhorns program. It also ended with another quick departure from the NCAA Tournament.For year two, the mission is to keep the Longhorns on the upward trend, and keep them playing much deeper in the postseason, even with no returning starters and seven newcomers to the lineup .Thats asking a lot in a league like the Big 12.It was a fun transition, and continues to be a transition because were certainly far from having our program all the way established to where we wanted it to be, Smart said. We lost a lot of guys. Had five seniors graduate, had a junior leave.Also gone are the exhausting early-season trips to China and the Bahamas that made it tough for Smart to build early consistency in his first season. But newly arrived on campus is 6-foot-11 forward Jarrett Allen, an Austin product who spurned an offer from national powerhouse Kansas to stay close to home.Texas has been a regular in the NCAA Tournament, making it 16 of the last 17 years. Smart was hired in large part because the problem was getting past the first weekend, which the Longhorns havent done since 2008.Smart has had his own postseason woes. Since leading Virginia Commonwealth to the Final Four in 2011, his teams havent made it past the tournaments opening weekend, including three straight first-round losses. Last season, Texas lost to Northern Iowa on a half-court shot at the buzzer.Some things to look for in Smarts second season at Texas:BIG THINGS FROM THE BIG MANMuch will be expected from Allen from the start. As one of the highest-rated recruits in the country, hell be asked not just to score but help patch up an interior defense thhat lost Prince Ibeh, last seasons Big 12 defensive player of the year.dddddddddddd Hes going to make a big impact right away. Were going to play him at multiple positions, Smart said.FREQUENT FLIER MILESTexas wont rack up as many of those. Unlike last seasons globe-trotting schedule that had the Longhorns jet-lagged for a month, the longest out-of-conference trips this team will make include New York for a Thanksgiving week tournament and a December trip to Michigan. They should be well rested for the start of Big 12 play.GO-TO GUARDTexas needs a go-to ball handler and passer after Isaiah Taylor turned pro after last season. That looks like it could be sophomore Kerwin Roach, whose athleticism produced some rim-rattling dunks last season. But Smart plans to get the ball in a lot of hands. Defenses knew everything ran through Taylor last season.I think its definitely a more versatile group, Smart said. Were going to have to play point guard by committee, and that will be interesting to follow.BIG SHOT DAVISWhoever becomes the distributor, guard Eric Davis will get a lot of looks. He started just two games last season but made 42 3-pointers, shooting 38 percent and returns as the Longhorns top outside threat.YOUTH MOVEMENTSmarts first team was dominated by seniors. It will be freshmen and sophomores leading the way this time. Of all the players who attended preseason Big 12 media days, Roach and Davis were the only sophomores. Other freshmen who will be expected to contribute immediately will be guards Andrew Jones and Jacob Young and forward James Banks. ' ' '
