9ers-Jersey/]C. J. Beathard Youth Jersey[/url]. St. Louis is expected

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey . -- The Royals bolstered their offence Monday by acquiring outfielder Josh Willingham from the Minnesota Twins, a move the long-suffering franchise hopes will help them end a playoff drought that stretches back nearly three decades. Kansas City had won seven straight games entering its series opener against Oakland, climbing into the second wild-card spot and a half-game back of AL Central-leading Detroit. The Royals have not been to the post-season since 1985, when they beat St. Louis to win the World Series. "Obviously the goal was to win with the Twins," Willingham said from Houston, where the Twins were preparing to play the Astros. "Unfortunately, we werent. Now I have a chance to go help another club and hopefully make the playoffs." Willingham is expected to arrive in Kansas City in time for Tuesday nights game. The Twins picked up minor league pitcher Jason Adam in the trade, while the Royals agreed to take on the remainder of Willinghams contract -- about $1.8 million of the $7 million that he was making in the final year of his three-year deal. Willingham was hitting just .210 for the Twins this season, but his 12 homers in limited at-bats were appealing for a Royals club that has struggled to find power. The 35-year-old Willingham hit a career-best 35 homers with 110 RBIs two years ago. "We see his presence in the middle of our lineup somewhere, and being that presence that can get some big hits for us," Royals general manager Dayton Moore said. "He had a big hit yesterday actually against Oakland. Hes a professional. Hes a winner. We feel very strong that hes going to help our team. Hes the type of player and presence that you add at this time of year." Moore said that Willingham is more likely to serve as a designated hitter than play in the outfield, where there is already a logjam of players. Billy Butler, the clubs normal DH, has been forced to play first base while Eric Hosmer is on the disabled list with a right hand injury. "I think hell be in the lineup most days as we set up right now," Moore said. The Royals cleared space for Willingham on the 40-man roster by requesting unconditional release waivers on right-hander Wilking Rodriguez. They will still have to make a move to add Willingham to the 25-man roster when he reports to Kansas City. "It doesnt soak in immediately," Willingham said. "Its one of those things you dont know what your mind is processing. You know its going on but you have mixed emotions. Any time youre saying goodbye to really good friends, its tough, but at the same time -- the other side of it, the baseball side of it -- theyre winning over there. From a business side, its good for me." The 23-year-old Adam, who grew up in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park, was 5-9 with a 4.67 ERA with Double-A Northwest Arkansas and Triple-A Omaha this season. And while the Royals had toyed with making him a reliever, the Twins intend to convert him back to a starter. He will be assigned to the clubs Double-A affiliate in New Britain. "His stuff is pretty impressive," Twins GM Terry Ryan said. "You look at his bio, his numbers arent eye-popping, but you see him play, a number of our people have put in good reports on him. Were going to slow him down a bit and see if we cant get some of that under control." Ahkello Witherspoon Womens Jersey . -- Raiders wide receiver Jacoby Ford made it through a third straight practice without any setbacks and expects to play in Oaklands regular-season finale against San Diego. Joe Williams Jersey . Louis Blues and Buffalo Sabres came to an agreement on a big trade that may only offer incremental improvement to the Blues in their quest for a Stanley Cup. http://www.thesf49ersshoponline.com/Ahk … rs-Jersey/ .C. -- After turning Tobacco Road into "Raleigh Top," Tennessee is headed to the round of 16. BOSTON -- Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said he will probably start Jake Peavy in Game 3 of the World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals, followed by Clay Buchholz in Game 4. Farrell said after Bostons 8-1 victory in Game 1 on Wednesday night that he will likely give Buchholz another day of rest. "Well probably look to give him every extra day we can," Farrell said, "and that would point to Sunday, being Game 4." Buchholz gave up five runs in eight innings and two runs in five innings in his AL championship series starts against Detroit; Peavy gave up seven runs in three innings in his only ALCS start. Asked before the World Series opener whether Buchholz had an injury, Farrell said, "Not to the point of keeping him out of starting." Farrell said he wanted to see the Cardinals in the first two games; his decision also could be influenced by whether it looks as if the Red Sox would need their Game 3 starter to come back for a potential seventh game. Jon Lester started against St. Louis Adam Wainwright in Game 1, with John Lackey scheduled to go for Boston against Michael Wacha in Game 2 on Thursday night at FFenway Park. C. J. Beathard Youth Jersey. St. Louis is expected to start Joe Kelly and Lance Lynn in Games 3 and 4. Wacha, a rookie whom the Cardinals obtained with a compensatory draft pick when Albert Pujols signed with the Angels, was 4-1 with a 2.78 ERA in the regular season, spending part of the year with Triple-A Memphis. He is 3-0 with a 0.43 ERA in the post-season. "I want the ball in big situations. Theres none bigger than the World Series," Wacha said. "And so Im excited about getting it and I think every guy on our team wants the ball in these kinds of situations." When he found out he would be starting Game 2 at Fenway Park -- his first time pitching in the ballpark -- it created a whole bunch of new things to be excited -- and worried -- about. "This is kind of a tricky little ballpark with the dimensions and that kind of stuff. One pitch can really kind of change a game," Wacha said. "You try not to think too much about it, just try to approach it just like any other game, any other stadium. And thats just making pitches down in the zone and try not to give them too much of a chance to lift it."
