Gary Carter Jersey
SURPRISE http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-...ier-jersey , Ariz. (AP) — Brad Boxberger made it to Royals, 13 years later than Kansas City first envisioned.Kansas City selected the right-hander in the 20th round of the 2006 amateur draft from Foothill High School in North Tustin, California. He opted to go to Southern Cal, and Cincinnati took him three years later with the 43rd overall pick.After seven seasons in the major leagues with San Diego, Tampa Bay and Arizona, the 30-year-old agreed this month to a $2.2 million, one-year contract with the Royals.“Just the great opportunity I’d have here,” Boxberger explained.Kansas City’s bullpen was a strength when the Royals won the 2015 World Series, a group that included Wade Davis, Greg Holland and Kelvin Herrera. Boxberger was an All-Star that year with the Rays, leading the AL with 41 saves.He joins a bullpen that was among the worst in the major leagues last year David Wright Jersey , compiling a 5.04 ERA and blowing 24 of 57 save chances.Boxberger will compete for the closer’s job in spring training with Wily Peralta, who had 14 saves in as many opportunities last year after Herrera was traded to Washington.“I don’t determine roles right now,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “They determine themselves. It’s not hard for me to determine.They work themselves out. As we get into spring training, the competition will determine who earns the most high leverage roles. It always has and it always will.”Boxberger had 24 saves and a 3.06 ERA with 49 strikeouts in 35 2/3 innings the first half of last season with the Diamondbacks, then a 7.00 ERA during the second half while walking 14 and striking out 22 in 18 innings. He had an 11.37 ERA in September.“I think it was just being a little tired,” Boxberger said. “It was my first full season after being hurt for a couple of years. Just being able to get in full season under my belt last year is definitely going to help me coming into this season.He had adductor surgery in 2016, did not pitch in the major leagues until May 31, when he left with a muscle strain in his left side during a game at Kansas City. He did not return to the big leagues until July 31.In 2017, a right flexor strain set back Boxberger, who made his first big league appearance on June 30.Kansas City went 58-104 last season, its poorest record since 2005. After starting the season 1-12 at home http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-...ler-jersey , they won 15 of their final 20 games at Kauffman Stadium.“We lost 104 games last year and I couldn’t be more excited coming into spring training because of where we ended up,” Yost said. “That doesn’t mean we’re going to pick up where we left off. You start at square one. We’ve got to continue to work hard to make improvements and get better, but these guys are willing to put in the work and willing to do everything it takes to achieve their dreams and goals.”NOTES: The Royals signed LHP Jake Diekman to a $2.75 million, one-year deal. Diekman will get $2.25 million this season, plus a $500,000 option buyout for 2020. The 32-year-old went 1-2 with a 4.73 ERA in 71 games for Texas and Arizona last season. Kansas City placed RHP Jesse Hahn on the 60-day injured list in a corresponding move. Hahn is recovering from Tommy John surgery. It's time for a parade again in Boston.This time, it's the Boston Red Sox, who finished off the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games and earned their fourth World Series title since 2004.The franchise that broke an 86-year World Series drought with a four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals in 2004 has become quite adept at winning titles. In many ways, it is similar to the dominance the Red Sox demonstrated at the beginning of the 20th century when they won five titles between 1903 and 1918.The city has seen all its sports teams win titles in the 21st century, and Boston has become the city of champions.This could be a special year for the city's sports teams, as the New England Patriots are almost always in contention for a Super Bowl Mookie Wilson Jersey , the Boston Celtics may have the best chance of any NBA team of challenging the powerful Golden State Warriors and the Boston Bruins have a chance to play with the elite teams in the NHL and regain Stanley Cup glory.But Wednesday belongs to the 2018 Red Sox, a team that won 108 regular-season games, beat the New York Yankees in the American League Division Series, took down the defending World Series titlist Houston Astros in the ALCS before dispatching the Dodgers in the Fall Classic.The Boston Globe BostonGlobeThe #RedSox championship parade begins tomorrow at 11 a.m. Here鈥檚 a look at the route: ixo7ybzP9VThe parade route is fairly familiar to Bostonians, with an alteration to the starting point.Appropriately, the parade will commence at Fenway Park, the green cathedral of baseball. The champions will proceeddown Lansdowne Street, take a right on Ipswich Street and then a left on Boylston Street toTremont Street at Boston Common, per Boston.com. The parade then makes its way to Cambridge Street and will finish at New Sudbury Street. The parade gets underway at 11 a.m. ET.Red Sox fans are always emotional, and as the team established itself as the winningest in Red Sox history, comparisons with the greatest teams in baseball history have started.Whether they belong in a conversation with teams like the 1927 Yankees http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-...tra-jersey , the '39 Yankees, the '61 Yankees, the '75 Reds and the '98 Yankees is up for debate, but the 2018 Red Sox will be treated like heroes to those along the parade route.Fans are likely to show their appreciation for World Series heroes Steve Pearce, David Price and Nathan Eovaldi.Pearce earned the World Series MVP award as he hammered three home runs in Games 4 and 5, while Price transformed from a career postseason question mark to a legitimate stud as he beat the Astros once and the Dodgers twice in his starts. He also took the ball in relief on a couple of occasions.Eovaldi, who was acquired from the Tampa Bay Rays during the summer, was remarkable during the postseason. He started two games for the Red Sox and pitched in four others in relief. He had a 1.61 earned-run average in 22.1 innings, striking out 16 hitters and walking just three while holding opposing batters to a .185 batting average.Included in Eovaldi's effort was a 6.0-plus effort in the 18-inning third game. Eovaldi ultimately took the loss when he gave up a home run to Max Muncy, but he calmly handled the pressure of holding off the Dodgers for inning after inning.Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez, the two biggest stars on the team throughout the season Gary Carter Jersey , will also get warm welcomes, and so should Jackie Bradley Jr., the ALCS MVP.Boston left-hander Chris Sale, the ace of the pitching staff, rallied his team in Game 4 with a fiery speech in the dugout. It would not be a surprise if the emotional Sale did the same at the parade to pump up the fans in attendance.The team that met and exceeded all expectations will get a lifetime's worth of memories as the city of Boston celebrates its latest champions.
