DUNEDIN, Florida - Kevin Pillar and Ryan Goins made their respective major league debuts nine days apart last August and with just days until spring training play gets underway, the two late-season Toronto Blue Jays call ups find themselves in different situations vis-à-vis the 2014 squad. Lakers Jerseys 2019 . Goins is the early favourite to win the starting job at second base. Pillar is an outsider to secure a role off the bench, which becomes an even more difficult spot to win if the number of back up jobs is reduced by one. That happens if the Blue Jays decide to start the season with an eight man bullpen. Praised last week by general manager Alex Anthopoulos as the best defensive second baseman the club has had since Orlando Hudson and as "gold glove caliber," Goins hopes an offensive adjustment he made in mid-September helps to round out his game. Goins moved his hands down in his batting stance. Then, during an offseason visit to new hitting coach Kevin Seitzer in Kansas City, Goins went one step further, starting his hands closer to his body. "I have more time to see the ball," he said. "My timing is a little different than having so much movement, having to get going so much earlier, so now its a little better to see the ball and hopefully it will lead to better plate discipline, hitting the ball harder and more consistent." A safe bet to be the nine-hole hitter if he makes the team, Goins is eager to improve upon the .609 OPS he posted in 121 plate appearances over 34 games with the Blue Jays last season. His .679 OPS in 111 Triple-A games last season feeds into the all defense-not much offense narrative but Anthopoulos is more concerned with run prevention this season after watching his infield struggle with injuries and range last year. "He needs to be able to hold is own (offensively,)" said manager John Gibbons. Seitzer, during his first scrum with the Toronto media in January, said he saw Goins as a potential .275-.280 hitter. Their Kansas City rendezvous had already happened so Seitzer was speaking as someone whod watched Goins up close. "I see myself as a hitter," said Goins. "I think I can put together productive at-bats for a season and help the team win. Whatever they need me to do. If its situational hitting, hit and runs, bunting guys over. Whatever is called upon me, wherever Im hitting in the lineup, is what Im going to go out there and do everyday." Pillar, who made his debut on August 14 and went 0-17 before getting his first big league hit at Yankee Stadium, struggled to a .206/.250/.333 line over 110 plate appearances. He got away from his strength as an offensive player, an up-the-middle approach, becoming pull happy and unable to lay off down-and-away breaking pitches. Not one to mope, Pillar went home to Southern California and went to work. "I went home, took about two weeks off in the offseason and Ive been hitting three to four hours everyday just trying to get back," said Pillar. "People say, Why dont you just go back to what you did? Once its gone its gone. Like a lot of things in life, once you forget how to do it or how you felt in the box youve got to recreate that feeling." Pillar insists he isnt exaggerating his three-to-four hours a day hitting routine. His only break wasnt a break. He went to play winter ball in the Dominican Republic and had 66 at-bats, his attempt to get back in his groove. Lawrie thrilled for Team Canada Brett Lawrie, the lone Blue Jay whos Canadian born and raised, was happy to lord Canadas Olympic hockey gold medals over his teammates. After all, Lawrie is badly outnumbered in the clubhouse. "When youre the underdog youve got to keep quiet because theres too many of them," said Lawrie. "I just waited for my turn and then obviously I got my opportunities." Lawrie did his best to keep an eye on Sundays win, working around media responsibilities and warm up Sunday morning at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium. Kawasaki follow up One day after predicting Canada would beat Sweden 2-1 in the mens hockey gold medal game, Munenori Kawasaki was pleased with himself. "I say Canada win," Kawasaki said.

Mike Tobey had 15 points and 10 rebounds, as the No. 6 ranked team dominated Harvard, 76-27, at John Paul Jones Arena. Malcolm Brogdon also scored 15 for Virginia (11-0), which is off to its best start since the 1992-93 season. Harvard is a lot better than they showed, Virginia coach Tony Bennett said. Mike Tobey got us off to great start offensively, and defensively we were ready. We prepared well this week in practice and had great respect for Harvard, but you could see they were sluggish and had one of their poorer games. The Cavaliers entered the day ranked second in the nation in scoring defense (47.9 ppg), behind only Kentucky (47.7 ppg). Virginia has held opponents under 70 points in a nation-leading 17 consecutive contests. It was also the second time this season the Cavaliers held an opponent under 30 points. They beat Rutgers, 45-26, on Nov. 29. Corbin Miller scored eight for Harvard (7-2), which shot 16 percent (8-of-50) from the field in its first game since a 12-day layoff for final exams. The Crimson had a six-game winning streak snapped. Harvard went 1-of-20 from the floor in the first half. That ties an NCAA record with Northern Illinois for fewest field goals in a half. The Huskies were 1-of-31 against Eastern Michigan on Jan. 26, 2013. Wesley Saunders, who came into the game at an impressive 20.1 ppg to pace the Ivy League, was held to four on 0-for-7 shooting. We were hopeful that we could break through and come away from a few possessions without hanging our head, Harvard coach Tommy Amaker said. Sometimes, its hard to get that energy on the other end when you start to sulk and hang your head a little bit. Thats normal human nature, especially when our best offensive player had a very tough afternoon. The Cavaliers opened a 7-0 lead, and Tobey accountedd for UVAs first nine points. Los Angeles Lakers Pro Shop. The Crimson had a difficult time getting off clean looks at the basket, and had a stretch of nearly 20 minutes without a field goal. Zena Edosomwans layup with 16:31 remaining put Harvard on the board, but the Crimson didnt hit another shot the rest of the half and faced a 39-8 deficit at the break. Tobey led the way by making all six of his field-goal attempts and compiled all of his points by the break. Virginia, which went 16-of-26 from the floor in the first 20 minutes, scored 14 in a row for a 30-4 cushion. Brogdons jumper capped the burst. Harvards first-half performance was being compared to UCLAs 3-of-37 effort in the opening 20 minutes of an 83-44 loss to No. 1 Kentucky on Saturday. The Bruins were behind 41-7 at the break in that contest. The eight points in a half ties the fewest by an opponent in the history of John Paul Jones Arena, which opened in time for the 2006-07 season. Harvards second field goal didnt come until 16:38 left in the game, when Steve Moundou-Missi converted a layup and was fouled by Justin Anderson. That ended a stretch of 20 straight misses. Moundou-Missi made the free throw for a 45-12 margin. The Cavaliers widened the gap to 56-15 with 12:09 left following a Marial Shayok layup. Defensively, this has to be our standard now, Tobey said. We did a great job executing our defensive game plan. Harvard is a great team, preseason top-25 and very talented, but I think we did a good job holding them.
