ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Lance Berkman is expected to miss eight to 10 weeks following surgery Friday on his injured right knee. Thats unexpected good news for a player who thought he might miss the rest of the season and perhaps be forced into retirement. The team said the arthroscopic surgery found a partial tear in the medial meniscus, which was removed. Doctors also found a cartilage tear that was debrided, but judged the ligament sound. "Great news, as good news as we could get from this," said manager Mike Matheny, who spoke with Berkman after the operation. "The conversation was Im going to be back. He thought it was probably worse. The doctors were extremely optimistic with what they saw." General manager John Mozeliak was encouraged, yet guarded at the prospect of plugging Berkman back into the lineup in late July or early August. "I think in fairness to everything, we should just be patient and see how things unfold over the next couple weeks," Mozeliak said. "But we are optimistic that hell play again for us this season, and were hopeful its sooner rather than later." The Cardinals could get pitcher Chris Carpenter back sometime after the All-Star break, too, although theres no timetable yet because the right-hander hasnt been cleared to throw. Carpenter has a nerve issue in his shoulder. "We are still hopeful," Mozeliak said. "There is a level of optimism given the strength hes gained and where hes at in his current rehab program." Allen Craig is expected to take over for Berkman at first base when he comes off the 15-day disabled list early next month from a hamstring injury, and centre fielder Jon Jay is progressing from a shoulder injury. Mozeliak thought Craig would be ready when hes eligible to play June 1 and estimated Jay, who took batting practice Friday without issues, might be just a few days behind. The 36-year-old Berkman had feared possible damage to the anterior cruciate ligament. Matheny said Berkman sounded surprised when he explained the state of the knee to the manager. "He tried to explain it to me but it was like using a diagram over the phone and it wasnt working," Matheny said. "Good thing hes not the doctor," Mozeliak added. Berkman has played just 13 games this season, also missing significant time with a pulled left calf muscle. The knee injury occurred on May 19. He was a key part of the teams championship run in 2011, hitting .301 with 31 homers and 94 RBIs in 145 games, and batted either fourth or fifth in his games this season. Berkman will begin his recovery and rehabilitation in Houston, where he spent most of his career and where he had the surgery. wholesale nfl jerseys . The city announced Friday that the promoter of the event, Octane Motorsports of Montreal, has told city officials it will not produce the race in July 2013 as planned. wholesale jerseys from china . It could be one heck of a match-up but it will be hard to surpass last years overtime thriller between these teams. I guess expecting another overtime game is expecting too much. I believe its nice that the two top-rated teams in Canada meet in the CIS final. http://www.chinawholesalejerseysnfl.com/ . So did manager Terry Collins. The Mets were roughing up on one of their fiercest rivals and a boisterous crowd at Citi Field was enjoying every minute. cheap nfl jerseys . That was more than Peyton Manning could say.

J.J. Hardy homered twice, doubled and drove in five runs, and the Orioles defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 9-2 Tuesday night to move into a tie for the AL East lead.Less than twenty-four hours after the Winnipeg Jets final game of the season, players met the media for one final time. All agreed their first year in Winnipeg was one they will never forget and were disappointed they did not meet their goal of making the playoffs. To their credit they did not offer excuses, even though they could have. So, we will touch on some areas that played a part in their season win-loss record. Winnipeg is not geographically positioned to play in the Southeast division with Tampa, Carolina, Washington and Florida. Its not the length of the trips, but the practice days that were missed because of the travel. Practice days that with another new coach would have been very valuable. At the start of camp when becoming a "team" was critical, the team was playing split-squad games. While half the team was at home playing Columbus in their first preseason game, the other half was in Columbus. Then as part of the group went to Nashville and St. Johns, another group was in Charlotte playing Carolina. And on it went. For the most part the Jets played Atlantas schedule, with a few alterations. Twelve of the first seventeen games were on the road. They got off to a bad start with a poor road record from which they would never recover. Even though it appears they will again play in the Southeast in 2012-13 (the NHLPA rejected a new alignment that would have made for an easier schedule) the Jets will have more say in next years schedule. With strong play at home through December the Jets got themselves back in the race. But three wins in twelve games to start 2012 again got them in trouble. They battled until game 79 when they were officially eliminated from the the playoff race.dddddddddddd Coach Claude Noel Sunday said "things have to change. The attitude needs to be better. We have to expect to be in the playoffs next year. I will push harder and expect more. I saw growth and that needs to continue. I saw more inner accountability." This was Noels first full season behind an NHL bench. "I learned a lot," he said. "I was patient, more patient than I thought I would be. I will be less patient next year. I just felt they needed some room, wanted them to accept some responsibility and they did. There are areas I need to push more." Noel mentioned Blake Wheeler and Kyle Wellwood as pleasant surprises, and commended Captain Andrew Ladd for his leadership. "Hes what we need to be," he said. "We will lean on him but he needs help." Noel added that as for personnel changes going forward he will give his opinion but final decisions are not his. "I think we have a good thing going here. Its a great place to play, players will want to come here." Some changes are expected with Tanner Glass, Jim Slater, Chris Mason and Kyle Wellwood are among the list of UFAs. While Evander Kane and Ondrej Pavelec are two RFAs that need to be resigned. General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff will be a special guest on TSN 1290, the Winnipeg radio home of the Jets, for a two hour special from 6 pm to 8 pm ct Monday and Rick Ralph will moderate a two hour "year in review" special Tuesday from 6 pm to 8 pm on TSN 1290. A number of players will be off to the World Championships including Ladd and Kane, who will be joining Team Canada. ' ' '

 No es que el reloj hubiera desaparecido de la Replicas Relojes colección, pero Omega lo había ido actualizando y llegó Replicas de Relojes un momento en que se deshizo de uno sus rasgos más característicos: Replica Relojes la decoración con forma de olas. El modelo fue separando poco a poco su destino del de Bond para tomar entidad propia y aumentar así sus posibilidades de venta, porque ya no dependía de los seguidores de la saga.
