WINNIPEG -- For veteran receiver Terrence Edwards, a season like the one the Winnipeg Blue Bombers just ended is about as depressing as it gets. Authentic John Tavares Jersey . Edwards and his teammates cleared out their lockers Sunday after finishing 3-15, tied for the teams worst ever record in the 18-game CFL, capped with a crushing 37-7 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Looking up from the CFL cellar isnt where a receiver who has spent nine seasons in the league -- seven with the Bombers -- wants to be at the age of 34. "It hurts," said the softspoken native of Tennille, Ga. "Could it be my last season? . . . Im planning on returning next year but you never know what will happen, this is professional sports. "It would be a sad thing if I left Winnipeg with this taste in my mouth." Despite injuries that limited his playing time, Edwards finished second on the Winnipeg receiving yards list in 2013 with 549. Its a far cry from his three previous 1,000-yard plus seasons but this year the team also had a revolving door at quarterback, as they tried to find some consistency. They dumped Buck Pierce, struggled behind a series of backups, and landing a legitimate starter is job one for whoever is leading the Bombers into next season. With five head coaches in nine years, plus changes at other key spots, consistency throughout the organization seems lacking. General manager Joe Mack and sophomore president Garth Buchko paid with their jobs for the teams struggles. Coach Tim Burke doesnt know what the future will hold for him. This was his first full season after taking over mid-2012 from Paul LaPolice. But he agrees stability and success seem to go together in the CFL. "I think if you look at the teams that are most successful, theyre the most stable," he said in what, for now at least, was his last scheduled meeting with reporters. "If you look at Calgary, I think theyre very stable outfit. B.C., very stable. Through the years Montreal has been very stable. It usually starts at the very top." The very top right now isnt all that stable either. Team president Wade Miller, a former player, and general manager Kyle Walters both have "acting" in front of their titles. And they not only need to add new talent, theyll have a struggle hanging on to some of the best now wearing a Bomber jersey. Receiver Chris Matthews, the CFLs outstanding rookie in 2012, spent this season on the injury list. But as a free agent hell be trying his luck in the NFL before he thinks about returning to the CFL. Henoc Muamba, the teams most outstanding defensive player and a Canadian to boot, has yet to commit to returning. "Its still too soon. Negotiations are still in process, my agent is taking care of that, and were taking it one day at a time," he said Sunday. A lot of fingers have been pointed at the self-perpetuating board of the community-owned team for not making better decisions. They werent confined to whos running the team. The new $200-million stadium the Bombers finally opened a year late this season also came with more headaches. An open-air pressbox at Investors Group Field, for example, needs a $400,000 refit before the CFL will approve a Grey Cup for the city, which the team would like to land in 2015 or 2016. A lack of planning saw many fans tied up in traffic for hours as they tried to make their way through the few congested roads that allow access to the stadium site, the campus of the University of Manitoba. Those fans would have been a lot happier about the cracked concrete they stepped over when they finally did get to their seats if they had a team capable of winning more than one home game. If there is a bright side to the disaster this season brought, it may be that major change is unavoidable. And that the stars are aligned to make it easier. "Sometimes it does take something like this to create change," says veteran offensive lineman Glenn January, who, like Edwards, doesnt want to end his career on such a low note. "I think there is going to be change across the league with the expansion draft. Well have to wait and see." The Bombers could learn a little from other teams, suggests Edwards. "I just think some of the philosophies that weve had the last years havent worked," he says. "Kyle Walters, if hes the new GM, and Wade need to look at the models some of the other CFL teams have ... and try to emulate some of those things they have done. "Apparently it works for them. What we did, didnt." Authentic Johnny Boychuk Jersey .com) - Jeff Teague finished with a game-high 26 points and eight assists as the Atlanta Hawks held off the Utah Jazz, 98-92, on Friday.

Ellis have avoided arbitration, agreeing to a one-year contract. PHOENIX -- Red and blue lights flashed in the darkness as rap music blared and smoke filled the Washington Nationals clubhouse. The party ended at the door of the managers office. Inside it, Matt Williams, the one person who should have been celebrating, was subdued, calmly talking about his teams latest comeback win. With his teams recent struggles, he was just happy to get a win -- no matter where it was. Pinch-hitter Kevin Frandsen and Danny Espinosa each hit solo homers in the ninth inning, helping the Nationals rally for a 6-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night in Williams return to the desert. "Its good win for us," Williams said. "We needed that." Williams was a fixture in Arizona before becoming Washingtons manager this off-season. His new team scored four runs early, shut down for four innings, and tied it when Espinosa hit the second pitch of the ninth by Addison Reed (1-3) just over the wall in right. Frandsen put the Nationals up by lining his second career pinch-hit homer to left and Rafael Soriano stranded a runner at second in the ninth for his eighth save. Tyler Clippard (3-2) pitched a scoreless inning, Ian Desmond hit a two-run homer and Tyler Moore added a solo shot for Washington, which followed a three-game sweep by Oakland with its 11th comeback victory. "We needed that win," Espinosa said. "Coming off the series we just had, we really needed this. Its a good win." The Diamondbacks thought they had it. Arizona had 13 hits -- three by Aaron Hill -- and went up 5-4 when A.J. Pollock hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning. The bullpen did its job for three innings until it got to the ninth, where Reed struggled for his second blown save and Arizonas first loss when leading after eight innings (11-1). "There is not controversy here. He is our closer," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "He has done a (heck of a) job for us. Lets not forget that. It didnt work out tonight." Williams played for Arizona from 1996-2003 and was on the coaching staff from 2010-13 before getting his first shot at managing. He received a nice ovation when he was recognized and a video tribute played on the video board after the first inning. Williams current team limped into the desert for a three-game series against his old one. The NNationals have lost five of their eight position players from opening day to the disabled list, the latest first baseman Adam LaRoche, who went out Sunday with a strained right quad. Authentic Bob Nystrom Jersey. The Diamondbacks have been headed in the opposite direction since getting off to the worst start in franchise history. Ten games under .500 after 18 games, Arizona has started to show signs of life, winning three straight series during a 6-3 road trip that ended Sunday. Both teams knocked the ball around the ballpark most of the night. Moore, LaRoches replacement, went 0-for-3 after being called up on Sunday, but had a quick impact in Mondays game, hitting a solo homer to left off Josh Collmenter in the second inning to put Washington up 2-0. Collmenter hit his first career double in the third inning and scored on Martin Prados ground-rule double to end Jordan Zimmermanns scoreless streak at 12 innings. Paul Goldschmidt followed with another run-scoring double and Miguel Montero drove him in with a single to put Arizona up 3-2. The lead didnt last long; Desmond lined a two-run homer to left in the fourth to put Washington back up 4-3. Collmenter allowed four runs on four hits in five innings. Pollock put Arizona on top again in the sixth inning, dropping a two-run homer onto the pool deck in right. Zimmermann allowed five runs on 10 hits in 5 2-3 innings. Randall Delgado, Evan Marshall and Brad Ziegler each pitched a scoreless inning of relief for Arizona, but Reed gave up two homers that cleared by a few feet each in the ninth to give Williams bragging rights over his former team for at least one night. "I just have to keep the ball down and throw the ball where I am trying to throw it," Reed said. "Location is everything in pitching and right now I am leaving it over the middle of the plate." NOTES: Phoenix Mercury centre Brittney Griner threw out the ceremonial first pitch. ... Frandsens other pinch-hit homer was June 22, 2013, against the Mets... Ziegler stretched his scoreless streak to 18 1-3 innings with a perfect eighth. ... Arizona RHP Bronson Arroyo, who will start the second game against Washington on Tuesday, is 2-0 and has not allowed an earned run in 14 1-3 innings his past two starts.
