ST. Cheap Jerseys From China . PETERSBURG, Florida - The business of baseball is raw. It is unemotional. It creates space for feel good stories, some with lengthy enough time spans to reel in a fan base, but if the subject of said narrative doesnt fit with the broader plan he will find himself back on the outside. Todays subject: Munenori Kawasaki, who is packing his bags for a flight to Atlanta and a drive to nearby Lawrenceville. There, he will meet his Buffalo teammates, the Bisons, in the midst of a series against the Braves Triple-A affiliate in Gwinnett County, Georgia. Its the business of baseball. Jose Reyes is ready to return. Kawasaki has options, meaning he can be demoted without passing through waivers. Its the obvious move and the right move. Its also a bold move; surely general manager Alex Anthopoulos knows many Blue Jays fans wont be happy. Neither are Kawasakis teammates. Not to say they disagree with the decision. Its just that Kawasaki left a unique impression. "This is the part of the game that sucks," said Mark Buehrle. "Between the fans and the guys in here I think everybodys fallen in love with this guy. Come up here and done everything everybodys asked for him to do and probably plus more. This is the part, I think every guy in baseball, not what you do on the field but the business side of it, thats what sucks about it." Buehrle went on to add, "I love the guy." Buehrles sentiment is the majority view in the clubhouse. Kawasaki commanded a large presence, one which belied his relatively diminutive stature. He mingled in broken English with those who speak English. He spoke in broken Spanish with the clubs Latin contingent. On the field, Kawasaki will be remembered for his two out, two-run, game-winning double which capped a four-run ninth inning in a 6-5 win over Baltimore on May 26. Weeks later, on June 21, Kawasaki would hit an improbable two-run home run in the seventh to pull the Blue Jays into a 6-6 tie with those same Orioles. Toronto would win the game 7-6 and climb to .500 for the first time this season. Manager John Gibbons, his finger on the pulse of his team, knew this was a delicate situation. He called an impromptu, brief team meeting after Tuesday nights 5-1 loss to the Rays to inform the players of the roster move. Thats atypical. "Its tough to do," said Gibbons. "But the way it sets up, you know we want to keep our pitching intact. In that spot he wouldnt be playing much at all but its tough. You feel for the kid, he did a tremendous job for us, but hell be back." Truth is Anthopoulos had few alternatives. Reliever Juan Perez, 34, is out of options. Were he to be designated for assignment, he assuredly would have been claimed on waivers. Perez has been effective, has experience and is making the major league minimum salary. Its unlikely, due to the money hes owed, Dustin McGowan would have been scooped up had he been waived but, because of service time, McGowan has the right to refuse an assignment to the minor leagues. Given he can still throw a fastball 95 miles per hour after multiple shoulder surgeries, the Jays are eager to see if McGowans a salvageable asset. Neil Wagner was a non-starter. Hes now a fixture in Gibbons bullpen. Its a credit to Kawasaki that on the day of Reyes return to the Blue Jays, an important moment in this rollercoaster of a season, its his demotion that has people talking. Upon learning of the move, Kawasaki addressed the media with a message for his fans. There was nothing broken about the English. "I love you guys," Kawasaki said. The feeling is mutual.

Cote helped running back Jon Cornish run for a league-high 1,813 rushing yards en route to being named the leagues most outstanding player. SAN FRANCISCO -- Miami manager Mike Redmond got immediate results from his decision to put Justin Ruggiano in the leadoff spot. Ruggiano started the game with a home run in his third career start in the leadoff spot and added a two-run shot in the ninth that broke it open for the Marlins, who beat the Giants 7-2 Sunday for their 10th win in their last 11 games in San Francisco. "This guys got a lot of power," Redmond said. "We talked about our offence and trying to get guys in situations. We just led him off in hopes hed put together some good at-bats and it happened, he hit a couple of big home runs. It was great. He had a great day and was a huge part of the win today." Nathan Eovaldi (1-0) held the Giants in check into the seventh inning and Marcell Ozuna hit an RBI double and solo homer as the Marlins bested Matt Cain (5-4) and a struggling San Francisco bullpen to wrap up their first winning road trip of the season. The Marlins went 4-3 in Arizona and San Francisco after taking two of three at home against St. Louis as they try to put a rough 16-44 start to the season in the past. "Awesome road trip," Ruggiano said. "We played some tough teams. To come out with a winning record, first time this year, you can see things turn around a little bit. Its exciting to come to the ballpark. Were having fun." The defending World Series champion Giants dropped three of four at home to the team with the worst record in the National League, scoring just eight runs in the four games. The Giants went 3-4 on the homestand that started with three games against San Diego, marking their first losing homestand since going 3-7 from July 23-Aug. 2 last summer. San Fracisco had won or split the last 10 homestands. "You can try to make excuses but really we didnt get the job done," Cain said. "We didnt get some guys in when we needed to and we didnt throw the ball like we needed to. We had some games where we had the lead and we didnt finish it off. You have to kind of just say its over with and move on now." The Giants did end a 90-inning home run drought when Hunter Pence led off the seventh against Eovaldi with a drive over the left field fence for his 12th of the season to cut Miamis led to 3-2. It was San Franciscos first homer since a leadoff shot by Gregor Blanco on June 14 in Atlanta. The eight homerless games coincided with an injury to third baseman Pablo Sandoval, who has been out since June 8 with a left foot strain. Sandoval homered the past two ddays on a rehab assignment with Class A San Jose and will be activated Monday for the series opener in Los Angeles. Wholesale NFL Jerseys China. "We need a lift right now," manager Bruce Bochy said. "Hes a big bat, presence in the lineup. Hopefully hell take a little pressure off the other guys trying to do too much. Any time youre missing a guy thats hitting in the heart of the order it does make it a little tougher. Hopefully he will spark this lineup." But Sandoval could only watch against Eovaldi and the Marlins. Eovaldi allowed just two hits in the first five innings -- a line drive that went in and out of the glove of sliding right fielder Giancarlo Stanton in the first inning and an infield hit between the pitchers mound and first base by Blanco in the fourth. Eovaldi was finally touched for a run in the sixth when pinch-hitter Tony Abreu tripled and scored on a groundout by Marco Scutaro. Eovaldis day ended when he walked Brandon Belt following Pences homer in the seventh. He allowed two runs and four hits in six-plus innings. Ryan Webb preserved the lead when he got pinch-hitter Joaquin Arias to hit into a 1-6-3 double play with runners on first and third to end the seventh. "Its really just a reaction play," Webb said. "As soon as I caught it, I just made sure I had the grip on it. Thankfully we were able to turn it." Chad Qualls pitched a scoreless eighth with help. Scutaro made the second out at second base when he tried to advance after Stanton threw to third following a single. The Marlins broke the game open with a four-run ninth against Jean Machi that featured homers by Ozuna and Ruggiano. It was Ruggianos second career multihomer game. Cain pitched fairly well after the leadoff homer by Ruggiano on the second pitch of the game. Cain struck out eight batters and walked none in six innings. The Marlins scored single runs in the fourth on an RBI double by Ozuna and sixth when first baseman Belt couldnt handle a hot shot by Logan Morrison for a run-scoring error that made it 3-0.
