LAS VEGAS (AP) — Before the weekend there probably wasn’t a bookie in this gambling town who would offer any kind of odds on Harold Baines making the baseball Hall of Fame.Way too much of a long shot after not even being remotely considered by the writers who get first crack at the voting. They dismissed Baines year after year until he fell so far off the Hall of Fame ballot that his name was removed.Yet there Baines was at a podium Monday inside the Mandalay Bay resort <a title="http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-scott-kingery-jersey" href="http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-scott-kingery-jersey">http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-scott-kingery-jersey</a> , standing in front of many of those same writers with a big grin on his face. There he was choking up when thinking about his father and how proud he would be that his son was a member of the most hallowed of all the halls in all the sports.And in front of him were a lot of people wondering — at least quietly — why Baines is going into the Hall of Fame after being considered not worthy for so many years.“Well, they can’t take it away from me now,” Baines said later, “even if they don’t think I should be there.”No they can’t, even if Baines took a back door into the Hall that seemed to be unlocked when no one was looking.His numbers alone — both traditional and new-age — don’t make a case that Baines is a Hall of Famer. Neither does the fact he was a DH most of his career, and in 22 years never finished in the top eight vote getters for MVP consideration.But he played a lot of games and had a lot of hits, though he didn’t reach the 3,000-hit mark that is considered a Hall of Fame measure.And, after a long career he had some influential friends on his side.“You look at his record and it can’t be denied,” said Tony La Russa, who managed Baines in Chicago and in Oakland. “He was in the top four or five of every offensive category for 20 years <a title="Odubel Herrera Jersey" href="http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-odubel-herrera-jersey">Odubel Herrera Jersey</a> , he was just a little too quiet.”La Russa was part of a 16-member, Hall-picked committee put together to make sure no deserving player gets left behind. Those members took a big swing and voted for Baines and Lee Smith to join others the Baseball Writers’ Association of America will vote next month to induct in next summer’s ceremonies.Yet while Smith was a unanimous pick of the committee, Baines got the minimum of 12 votes to join him in the Hall. And he was as surprised as anyone to get the call he was joining a rarified club.“I wasn’t sitting around thinking about it, to be honest,” the 59-year-old said.That Baines was mostly ignored by baseball writers during the time he was eligible — his biggest vote total was 6.1 percent when 75 percent is needed for induction — was partly because his candidacy was hurt by an inherent bias against the DH position by many writers. Smith also was hurt in voting because relief pitchers traditionally didn’t get the votes starters did.Baines didn’t play defense, didn’t hit well against lefties, and never had 200 hits or 30 home runs in a season. His new-age metrics weren’t that good, either, with a career 38.7 Wins Above Replacement by baseballreference.com that is behind other players who haven’t been voted in by the writers, and his 2,866 hits in 22 seasons qualify more for a longevity award than anything.But the committee of second chances — formally called Today’s Game Era Committee — had La Russa and Joe Torre as members advocating on his behalf. The committee also had Jerry Reinsdorf <a title="http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-jorge-alfaro-jersey" href="http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-jorge-alfaro-jersey">http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-jorge-alfaro-jersey</a> , the White Sox owner who a decade ago had a statue of Baines unveiled outside the team’s ballpark, as a member.“In my mind with the game on the line that’s who you wanted up,” Reinsdorf said.Reinsdorf was among those pushing for Baines and it’s hard to blame him. Baines was a good player for a long time, and a nice guy without any hint of controversy.Indeed, baseball could use more players — and more people — like Harold Baines.But to be in the Hall of Fame requires even better credentials. And baseball writers carefully studied those credentials over the years, only to find Baines lacking.Now that he’s in, the debate begins anew over his qualifications.And the biggest one, perhaps, was that he had good friends in high places.____Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press. Write to him at firstname.lastname@example.org or http://twitter.com/timdahlberg BOSTON — A report surfaced Saturday that had Nathan Eovaldi emerging as the Boston Red Sox’s fourth starter in their upcoming American League Division Series.The news, from Ken Rosenthal of the The Athletic, had Eovaldi jumping ahead of the struggling Eduardo Rodriguez to start Game 4 of the American League Division Series — because of his success against the New York Yankees.“We saw what happened this week <a title="Josh Bell Jersey" href="http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-josh-bell-jersey">Josh Bell Jersey</a> ,” said manager Alex Cora. “We have a pretty good idea who matches well with the Yankees.”Article continues below ...Last week, Eovaldi, picked up in July from the Tampa Bay Rays, pitched six shutout innings against the Yankees in the Bronx, which would be the site of a potential Game 4 of the first round. Rodriguez had a poor start in that same series.The Red Sox, of course, are also scouting the Oakland A’s, who will play the Yankees in a wild-card game.“(Rodriguez) likely is out of the division series rotation with Nathan Eovaldi opening the series in the bullpen and then being able to start Game 4 if necessary,” Rosenthal said.Meanwhile, Eovaldi, who faces the Baltimore Orioles — and Dylan Bundy — in the opener of a three-game series and the start of the regular season-ending seven-game homestand Monday night <a title="http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-sean-rodriguez-jersey" href="http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-sean-rodriguez-jersey">http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-sean-rodriguez-jersey</a> , hasn’t won in his last eight starts, going 0-3. He started his stay with the Red Sox with a pair of no-run outings, but has been sporadic since.The right-hander is 5-7 with a 3.98 ERA overall this season, 2-3 with a 3.64 ERA in nine starts with Boston.Eovaldi is 2-0 with a 5.16 ERA in six career starts against the Orioles.The Red Sox equaled the franchise record of 105 wins with a victory in Cleveland Friday night — a night after celebrating winning the American League East in New York — but then lost Saturday and Sunday nights. They fell to the Indians in 11 innings Sunday night.Bundy, like most of the Orioles, is suffering through a miserable season, coming in at 8-15 with a 5.37 ERA. He is 1-6 in his last nine starts and is 0-2 in four starts against the Red Sox this season.The Red Sox are 14-2 against the Orioles this season, 6-1 at Fenway Park — after Baltimore went 6-3 against the Sox at Fenway each of the last two seasons.Caleb Joseph is 5-for-9 (.556) with a home run, Adam Jones 6-for-17 (.353) and Chris Davis 4-for-13 (.308) with two homers against Eovaldi.The Red Sox have some strong numbers against Bundy.Brock Holt, who has been so vital for his team down the stretch, is 8-for-13 (.615) <a title="Felipe Vazquez Jersey" href="http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-felipe-vazquez-jersey">Felipe Vazquez Jersey</a> , Steve Pearce 3-for-8 (.375), Sandy Leon 4-for-12 (.333) with a homer, Xander Bogaerts 9-for-29 (.310) with two homers and Andrew Benintendi 8-for-26 (.308) with a home run.Mookie Betts is at just .258 (8-for-31) but has three home runs against Eovaldi, while Eduardo Nunez is 1-for-8 (.125), Mitch Moreland 4-for-24 (.167) and J.D. Martinez 2-for-11 (.182).With the Red Sox concentrating on getting through the final week while setting up their postseason pitching and trying to prevent injuries, there’s no telling what kind of lineup Cora might put out onto the field in this series.Bogaerts left Sunday night’s game during an at-bat with left shoulder soreness, the move announced as precautionary. Eduardo Nunez remained out with a sore knee but is expected to return early in the week.Mike Wright came on during the first Yankee at-bat of the game after Alex Cobb suffered a recurrence of his blister trouble. Wright walked the bases loaded (finishing the opening walk) and allowed three runs in that first inning but that was all for the Yankees for the day.“I mean usually you’re kind of aware whether or not you’re the long guy for the day,” Wright said. “Obviously Alex had issues with his fingers before, so we were kind of on high alert. Once I saw somebody go out I was pretty much ready to go in the game.”
The affair is, It's kinda awe-inspiring to whining that The Division 2 seems in actuality like the aboriginal one because I could kinda accept that because it's a bout collection. It's like accusatory about all Assassins canon looks in actuality the aforementioned but the affair is, Assassins canon accept batty appearance affects, Story, Missions, Movements etc etc..

There is a great video summary of our 2017 Provincial Pain Summit on YouTube. Watch it and let us know what you think!
Daily movement is vital to improving the quality of life for people living with pain. However, many of us have limitations and can't participate in a typical 5km run or walk style fundraiser. That's why, for the 2nd year, we're inviting you to participate in our fun, inclusive, health-focused MOVEment Day on June 11, 2017.
If You Live With Chronic Pain, Pledge to MOVE!
Any physical activity - as long as it's safe and approved by your medical team - can be highly beneficial for chronic pain. You can pledge to go for a gentle walk, play a game with a friend, do some light gardening, go for a swim, or even host a pyjama dance party, like participants did last year!
There is no cost to making your pledge; you're simply signing up to participate.

And what about flavored vaping? Are you heard about Stig pods?
Hi @Jess87, thanks for sharing your story so honestly. We're so sorry to hear about your accident and please don't feel alone—there is a community of people across BC who can support you and, as @KarenH has said, understand what you are going through.
The first thing we always ask people on Live Plan Be is: Have you seen a pain specialist? If you live in the Lower Mainland there are chronic pain clinics in Vancouver and Surrey. There can be a wait list but seeing a specialist for your pain is a good place to go if you are finding yourself at a wall.
It seems like you are already seeing a lot of specialists—that's great! If you are looking for some more support for the day to day, we have a list of support groups on our website. Our Facebook page is really active, and of course, please keep posting here on the Forum.
And thank you, @karenh, for sharing your insights and some tips on what has worked for you. Great idea about the lacrosse ball! We have heard that a tennis ball works too. Take care, both of you, and let us know if we can provide any more resources or tips for you.
Hi @JakeTheElephant and @Victoria66, We hear you! Living in poverty makes living with pain so much harder. There are a number of anti-poverty organizations that are working on advocacy to try to raise welfare and disability benefit rates in BC.
You can also contact our Connect for Health program to ensure you are getting access to all the financial supports you are eligible for, or contact the Disability Alliance of BC which has some helpful fact sheets on this topic.
