Following the MLB Winter Meetings, rumors began to surface once again regarding New York Mets trade for Troy Tulowitzki, the Colorado Rockies shortstop. Renewed hope from the Mets fans that their team could actually buy the All-Star shortstop notwithstanding, reports suggest that the possibility of such a deal is not likely and it shouldn’t. For starters, Tulowitzki’s asking price is way too high, and unless the price comes down, Mets shouldn’t consider a deal with the Rockies.
The only reason explaining the possibility of a Mets-Rockies deal is that Mets have what Rockies covet most, which is pitching. Mets have been busy attempting to release at least a top pitcher in the close season. On the other hand, the Rockies hope to consolidate their rotation. However, it has been reported that Colorado have insisted on a deal that includes either Jacob deGrom or Zack Wheeler, plus Noah Syndergaard, Mets highly rated prospect, in order for them to send their star player to New York. As if that is not enough, the Rockies may also ask for one or two prospect, plus a shortstop to be Tulowitzki replacement.
Given that cost, there is just no way the Mets would sanction a Tulowitzki trade. While Tulowitzki could be worth that price on the market, it would represent a risk too big for Tulowitzki to pay such a steep price. In the recent years, Tulowitzki has been quite injury prone and nothing suggests that this could change in the near future, given that he is over 30 years old.
With 6 years still to run in his contract, and there being no signs from Colorado that they can meet the huge $114 million needed to buy out his contract, the Mets would be ill-advised to shell that huge amount of money on a player so injury-prone. However, there’s no doubt that this would significantly boost the New York Mets tickets sales.
In case the Rockies drop their demand for DeGrom or Wheeler and instead make Syndergaard the focus of the trade, it would be possible to reach some kind of agreement between the two teams. Other than Syndergaard, the Mets could choose to include either Jon Niese or Dillon Gee in the deal, giving Colorado rotation that they are looking for. Also, the Mets might include 2 or 3 of their highly rated prospects, plus Flores, assuming that he is wanted by Colorado.
Although the Mets have financial backing to enable them push a deal for Tulowitzki, they shouldn’t make a trade that parts pitchers like deGrom and Wheeler, the two players that they are hoping will lead them to their 2015 rotation.
Any deal of an impact shortstop by the Mets has to include Syndergaard in either way. There is just no way they can be unable to package a deal involving him that will be acceptable to the Rockies. However, unless Colorado tones down on their asking price, the Mets need not budge. Sandy Alderson, the Mets general manager, has previously maintained a similar position. He has brilliantly played them by waiting to be approached by the market, which has enabled to get some best deals. For us, we can only wait and see how things unfold. Meanwhile, you can continue to enjoy your game by buying the tickets to Mets games (for example here).
ICC has finally announced the name of Cricket World Cup 2015 ambassadors who will be bearing the torch of the coming tournament. With 92 days left for the World Cup 2015 Schedule to start this is a big revelation from the board.
The name of ambassadors includes Aussie fast-bowler Mitchell Johnson and Shane Watson, Indian teams Virat Kohli, Kiwi skipper Brendon McCullum and former Sri Lanka skipper Kumar Sangakkara. These people will be participating in the build-up of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 profile as well as event promotion and ICC Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmed.
Showing his pleasure to be part of the ambassador team’s Mitchell Johnson said, “As Australia and New Zealand gear up to host ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, I am extremely proud and delighted to be associated with the competition as an ambassador. I look forward to helping promote what is set to be a fascinating tournament with some outstanding teams gearing up to claim cricket’s most coveted prize.
“I have been fortunate to participate in two World Cups to date and the Australia team is working hard to head into this tournament with some form and momentum. The tournament is going to really capture the imagination of the Australian and New Zealand public and there’s a real buzz about it. I’m sure all lovers of the game will relish it as much as the players.”
For India’s shining player Kohli it’s a moment of victory. He quoted, “It is a matter of pride to be selected as the ambassador of ICC. I thank ICC for bestowing this honour upon me. As a cricketer, I wish to spread the passion of cricket to grassroot levels and I look at this as an opportunity to unify global initiatives for cricket throughout the world.”
While there was a comment from Brendon McCullum, “With the World Cup just months away, no doubt all countries will be actively plotting and planning their campaigns. In 1992 our sport captivated the nations of both New Zealand and Australia, and I have no doubt the 2015 edition will do just the same.
“I am confident the tournament will again inspire a generation of Kiwis and Aussies to fall in love with this great summer game. After representing NZ at three previous Cricket World Cups, It is very humbling to be presented the opportunity to be an ambassador of this edition of the tournament and also the ICC during World Cup year. May the best team win! He added.”
Lankan Kumar Sangakkara, said: “I am honoured to have been appointed an ambassador for the forthcoming ICC World Cup in Australia next year alongside some great players.
“The ICC World Cup is the showpiece event in the global game for both players and fans – a festival of cricket that invariably provides compelling entertainment. Like many, I can’t wait for the start of the 2015 tournament in Australia and New Zealand, which I am sure will be a huge success. As an event ambassador I hope to assist the ICC in promoting the values and excitement of the World Cup, as well as supporting the ICC’s significant community programmes off the field that have become an important part of this great event.”
Last but not least the Australian all-rounder spoke what he feels at the moment. He said, “I am very honoured and thrilled to be an ambassador for the ICC and the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Having played in the 2007 and 2011 World Cup campaigns, it truly is a special occasion and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play a World Cup at home against the best teams in the world.
“I am sure cricket fans from Australia, New Zealand and around the world will be captivated by this wonderful event and will witness plenty of fantastic cricket. It is an exciting time to be part of the Australia team.”
These players are definitely the stars studding the ICC ambassador team.
When you visit Northbet’s Twitter account, you’ll get information and links in handy, small doses. For the top seniors in college football, production can’t come in small amounts. It has to be such an emotional time in a young man’s life, confronted with the reality that he is about to play his last season for the Alabama Crimson Tide or the Oklahoma Sooners, a team he probably wanted to play for since he was a little boy. Senior seasons have to carry a lot of impact, at least if you’re a starter. Which players are the most likely to turn their senior seasons into great ones?
Ramik Wilson, a linebacker for Georgia, belongs on this short list. If you look at the information that’s available on him, you’re going to be convinced about his ability to be not just good, but great. Leading the SEC in tackles is something that ordinary or merely above-average players don’t do. You have to be great to be that statistically prolific and that active on a field. It’s true that Georgia got involved in a lot of high-scoring games last season, as the SEC went from a league known for defense to a league that was dominated by great quarterbacks and passing games. Still, Wilson was all over the field making plays. That sort of thing simply can’t be overlooked or denied when you’re evaluating top seniors.
Rakeem Cato of Marshall has stuffed the stat sheet with gleaming numbers, the kinds that get the attention of NFL scouts. Cato is the Football Bowl Subidivision’s active leader in career passing yards, with more than 10,000 of them. The actual total is 10,176. Last season, he threw for just under 4,000 yards with 39 touchdowns and only nine interceptions, enabling the Thundering Herd to make and win the Military Bowl over Maryland. Cato has already done so much in his career, and he obviously felt that he needed to make one more statement for himself and his teammates this season instead of chasing the NFL dream early. He should be a foremost senior standout throughout the season. He’s a legitimate star player who would have a bigger national profile if he played in a more powerful conference than the one Marshall inhabits.
Nick Marshall of Auburn is a top senior not because of what he might do for his NFL career, or because of the raw numbers he might put up. Marshall is an example of a senior who is likely to be great because he’s going to be the heart of his team and his offense. Marshall took quickly to coach Gus Malzahn’s offense at Auburn, enough to lead the Tigers to the final BCS National Championship Game before the team barely lost to Florida State. Marshall is a gifted runner, and his ability to read defenses is what puts him ahead of the curve. He can still grow as a passer, but he’s already shown that he can be a leader on a championship-contending team.
B this time, you all would have come across the information that the upcoming 2014 world cup is going to be help at Brazil and the arrangement for which has seriously been undertaken by the authoritative committee.

One of the greatest all time cricket player Jacques Kallis says that he need to play the world cup which is to be held in Australia as well as New Zealand in the year 2015. The 38 year old player from South Africa has decided that he is to retire from the tests after the second test match against India which is to be held in Durban. He is one of the most famous all rounder where he has achieved various milestones in both batting as well as bowling. Jacques Kallis has played 325 one day international matches and he has scored 8680 runs and he has taken 273 wickets in the one day internationals. He has said that he will be looking forward for playing the 2015 world cup because he is hunger to push his team for the purpose of winning the cup. It is common that most of the cricketers in the late thirties always prefer to prolong their test career than avoiding the stressful shorter format of this game.
But in case of Kallis he has done it in reverse because he has quitted his test career rather than the shorter game formats such as the one day and twenty twenties. Thus his current test form is pale rather than the other stressful shorter formats of the game where he is considered as one of the most valuable all rounder in ODI as well as in T20. Thus it is the reason why Kallis has quitted his test career rather than the one days and the T20 where the sudden retirement of Kallis has made the world to surprise. Thus his retirement will lead the world top test team to a certain struggle where many never saw this will be coming. Thus his retirement will be considered as one of the most important drawback for the South African team. He made his valuable contribution to his team for number of years. Thus his speak about his idea to play in the world cup 2015 has made his fans to overcome the sorrow of his test retirement.
