    Surrey 252 (Burns 50, Patel 4-58) and 390 (Sangakkara 88, S Curran 62, Wright 4-75) beat Warwickshire 247 (Barker 62, S Curran 5-44) and 169 by 227 runsScorecardIan Bells accession to the Warwickshire captaincy was not meant to turn out like this. Mike White Jersey . Instead of an anticipated title challenge, he is now haunted by vague fears of relegation, unthinkable in April. Instead of an inspired return to the England side, he has made no immediate comeback to a deeply unimpressive England middle order and is so consumed by the job he has taken on late in his career that the runs are not coming easily.The Warwickshire captaincy was a childhood dream for Bell ever since he sprinted onto the outfield at Lords to celebrate the countys 1993 NatWest Trophy win under the individualistic captaincy of Dermot Reeve. For a proven England player to return to the county ranks with ambitions so sharp, and good years still ahead, was something for Warwickshire to relish, but the job is proving an onerous one.Bell challenged Warwickshire to bat out the final day against Surrey - to chase 396 for victory, from 2 for 1 overnight, felt out of the question - but the day he called the biggest of the season fell Surreys way by 227 runs with 20 overs to spare. Surrey have passed Warwickshire in the table and have the look of an improving side with much to commend them. If either of the bottom two stir it is now Warwickshire and Durham who have most to fear.At least Bell conceded his own wicket in most honourable fashion during a compelling duel with Gareth Batty, finally unpicked at short leg after making 32 in two-and-a-quarter stubborn hours, survival his only undertaking. He managed a couple of peaceful off-side drives, but the overriding image was of Bell under attack from an angry seagull as Batty squawked, flapped and smiled his way through his overs, finding substantial bounce and turn from a wearing final-day surface. This was surely the best 2 for 27 of the season, earned by 21 antagonistic overs. This has also been another excellent Edgbaston pitch.Surreys spin pair, Batty and Zafar Ansari, are both being monitored as potential England tourists in India and Bangladesh and they make a contrasting pair, not just because of offspin and slow left arm but in personality. Ansari has a stately stroll and flick back of floppy hair that smacks of old-time pedigree whereas Batty is waspish and combative, every grin - and he grins often when he is on top - the possible precursor to something more quarrelsome.Suggestions that a spinner fast heading towards his 39th birthday should add to his seven Tests, the last of them 11 years ago, naturally invite suspicion, but contenders are conspicuous by their absence and, if England opt for a specialist finger spinner then on this evidence Batty is better than anybody. That he would relish the challenge could be taken for granted.For the first 40 minutes of the morning, Bells call to arms was answered, but the loss of three wickets in six overs then told of a laborious day ahead. The nightwatchman Chris Wright backed up too far and Batty threw him out from mid-on with a celebratory speech of triumph. Varun Chopra, Bells predecessor, whose move to Essex has already been confirmed, edged Mark Footitts sixth ball of the innings to wicketkeeper Steven Davies. To lose Jonathan Trott, alongside whom Bell stood firm so often for England, was the biggest jolt of all, Stuart Meaker producing a good one to have him caught at the wicket.Three more wickets fell in the afternoon session, not just Bell, but Laurie Evans, who was forced back by Ansari and had his off-stump knocked out by one that turned. Rikki Clarke fell in the final over before tea, bowled as he offered no shot to Sam Curran. The tail succumbed easily enough after tea, the victory suitably confirmed by Batty when he had Oliver Hannon-Dalby lbw for nought, six Surrey bowlers taking wickets in a strong team display. Bell was omitted by England after averaging barely 20 in his last 23 Test innings, nine of them single figures. The Warwickshire captaincy seemed a perfect challenge and he has thrown himself into it with gusto. He could have taken quite a narrow role, concentrating on making runs, changing fields and preserving energy to keep his England ambitions alive. Instead, his authority is strikingly wide for a captain. For a player who has not skippered since age-group cricket - apart from a stand-in appearance or two - it must be particularly burdensome.He is taking a central role in recruitment and was influential in the signing of Olly Stone from Northants, a bowler who - if he stays fit - can bring new verve to their attack. Warwickshires academy, too, must surely be something that troubles him because he came that way himself, but it has not produced a player of substance for Warwickshire since Chris Woakes a decade or so ago. To lose Woakes regularly now to England - a consummate professional who would naturally buy into his ideas - has been a deserved career progression for Woakes, but ill-timed for Bell as he seeks to implant his beliefs on a squad that is arguably too unwieldy and too set in its ways to respond in the way he wishes. Robert Newhouse Jersey . Once again, DeLaet finished tied for second at a PGA Tour stop on the weekend, this time at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The pride of Weyburn, Sask. Adam Redmond Jersey . Philadelphia is 2-0 against the Senators this season and scored five goals in each victory. The Flyers recorded a 5-0 win in Ottawa on Nov. 12 and then earned a 5-2 home decision on Nov. 19. The Flyers have claimed three straight and four of the last five encounters with the Sens overall and Philly has won two in a row and three of its past four tests in Canadas capital city. . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. Its pretty much the same story at the top of the rankings, with the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals remaining No. 1 and No. 2 for the sixth straight week. The remainder of the top five continues to be dominated by the American League, with the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays switching spots at No. 3 and No. 4 and the Cleveland Indians remaining at No. 5.Elsewhere in the rankings, the Houston Astros and Kansas City Royals both moved up three spots after strong weeks that saw them climb back into the wild-card race in the American League. Is the top 10 next for either of them?This weeks voters are Jim Bowden of ESPN Insider, Eric Karabell of ESPN Fantasy, Tim Kurkjian of ESPN, David Schoenfield of the SweetSpot Blog Network/ and Jayson Stark of Most of the team comments come courtesy of the SweetSpot Blog Network.Past rankings: Week 20 |?Week 19 |?Week 18 |?Week 17 |?Week 16 |?Week 15 |?Week 14 |?Week 13 |?Week 12 |?Week 11 |?Week 10 | ?Week 9 |?Week 8 |?Week 7 |?Week 6 |?Week 5 |?Week 4 | Week 3 | Week 2 | Week 1 | Preseason1. Chicago CubsRecord: 82-47 Week 20 ranking: No. 1The Cubs finished the week with a 4-2 record and head into the upcoming week with a series against the Pirates and the Giants and a chance to reinforce that they are the team to beat. --?Joe Aiello (@VFTB), View from the Bleachers2. Washington NationalsRecord: 75-55 Week 20 ranking: No. 2After scoring just 4.32 runs per game in July, the Nationals are racking up 5.92 per game in August. Nearly everyone is contributing, but you can credit Bryce Harper (.621 OPS in July, 1.004 in August) and Trea Turner (.738 OPS in July, .931 in August), the latter of whom is really coming into his own, with 16 hits in his past six games. -- Ryan P. Morrison?(@ryanpmorrison), Inside the Zona3. Texas RangersRecord: 77-54 Week 20 ranking: No. 4Texas enters this week with an 8? game lead in the AL West over the Mariners and Astros and the best record in the AL by 2? games. If the Rangers play .500 baseball the rest of the way, theyll finish with at least 92 wins. In order for Houston or Seattle to match that, each would need to go 24-8 the rest of the way, while playing one another six more times. --?Brandon Land (@onestrikeaway), One Strike Away4. Toronto Blue JaysRecord: 74-56 Week 20 ranking: No. 3Dioner Navarro was reacquired on Friday. He provides additional flexibility as a switch-hitter off the bench. Navarro served as Marco Estradas personal catcher during his first stint with the team. Trade acquisitions Jason Grilli (setup) and Joaquin Benoit (seventh inning) have solidified the bullpen.?-- Diane Firstman (@dianagram), Value Over Replacement Grit5. Cleveland IndiansRecord: 73-56 Week 20 ranking: No. 5The Indians scored 16 runs during their seven-game road trip through Oakland and Texas, where they went 2-5. Twelve of those runs were scored in just one game -- Friday night in Texas. ?--?Stephanie Liscio (@stephanieliscio), Its Pronounced Lajaway6. Los Angeles DodgersRecord: 73-57 Week 20 ranking: No. 7Clayton Kershaw will take the next step in his recovery from a herniated disk in his lower back on Tuesday, facing hitters in a simulated game setting. Los Angeles has already used 14 different starting pitchers. (The team record is 19, set in 1944.) --?Diane Firstman (@dianagram), Value Over Replacement Grit7. Boston Red SoxRecord: 72-58 Week 20 ranking: No. 6At the end of July, Drew Pomeranz had done little to impress with his new team, with 12 earned runs in 14.1 innings. But Pomeranz has rattled off five strong starts in August, yielding eight earned runs in 30 innings (2.40 ERA) and racking up 31 strikeouts in the process. -- Ryan P. Morrison (@ryanpmorrison), Inside the Zona8. San Francisco GiantsRecord: 71-59 Week 20 ranking: No. 8In a critical midweek series, the Giants couldnt keep pace with the Dodgers, who now have a two-game lead in the National League West. Brandon Belt will miss some time with neck stiffness, and Jake Peavy hit the DL with a lower back strain, putting more stress on San Francisco.?-- Jeff Wiser (@OutfieldGrass24), Inside the Zona9. Baltimore OriolesRecord: 71-59 Week 20 ranking: No. 9Last week, the Orioles took four of seven combined games from the Nationals and Yankees. But they also had three straight ugly losses between their third and fourth wins. The Orioles are treading water without Chris Tillman in the rotation and will send?Wade Miley, Ubaldo Jimenez, and Yovani Gallardo?to the mound as the scheduled starters for their upcoming three-game series with the Blue Jays.?--?Matt Kremnitzer (@mattkremnitzer), Camden Depot10. St. Louis CardinalsRecord: 68-61 Week 20 ranking: No. 11With a 1.75 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 86 strikeouts in 67 innings, reliever?Seung Hwan Oh?might be the teams?second-most valuable pitcher (2.5 bWAR) after Carlos Martinez (4.0 bWAR). Luke Weaver has held his own while filling in for Michael Wacha, but the Cardinals lead for the second wild-card spot has shrunk to half a game. -- Ryan P. Morrison?(@ryanpmorrison), Inside the Zona11. Detroit TigersRecord: 69-61 Week 20 ranking: No. 12The Tigers have six players with at least 17 home runs, which ties for the AL lead with the Red Sox. Alas, my quest to use an arbitrary cutoff point to find something that the Tigers excel at that their playoff rivals dont continues.?--?Richard Bergstrom (@rbergstromjr), Rockies Zingers12. Houston AstrosRecord: 68-62 Week 20 ranking: No. 15The arrival of Yulieski Gurriel created a discussion of who will play third base with Alex Bregman on the roster, but the pair continued to ease concerns on Saturday night, combining to go 4-8 with two doubles, a homer and five runs batted in. Gurriel DHd again, while Bregman manned the hot corner.?Jeff Wiser (@OutfieldGrass24), Inside the Zona13. Seattle MarinersRecord: 68-62 Week 20 ranking: No. 10Seattle surrendered some ground this week after re-emerging as a wild-card threat. The Mariners lost two of three against the Yankees at home, then dropped three of four while visiting the White Sox in Chicago. -- Jeff Wiser (@OutfieldGrass24), Inside the Zona14. Miami MarlinsRecord: 67-63 Week 20 ranking: No. 14Miami has suffered 10 shutout losses this season, three of them by 1-0, including two in the past week. There has been a shuffle in the bullpen, with Fernando Rodney taking over the closer role and A.J. Ramos sliding into a setup spot.?-- Diane Firstman (@dianagram), Value Over Replacement Grit15. Kansas City RoyalsRecord: 68-62 Week 20 rankking: No. Damien Wilson Jersey. 18The Royals were six games under .500 to start August, but with the help of 12 wins in 14, they charged to six games over .500. Alex Gordon has also flipped the script in what was shaping up as an underwhelming season, hitting seven homers in August to raise his OPS this month to .907 -- after marks of .654 or lower in each of the seasons first four months. --?Ryan P. Morrison?(@ryanpmorrison), Inside the Zona16. New York YankeesRecord: 67-62 Week 20 ranking: No. 16It was a solid week for the Yankees, as they took two of three from both the Mariners and Orioles. The rotation is holding up its end for the time being, and Gary Sanchez has paced the offense with the best 20-plus-game start to an MLB career in a very, very long time. His at-bats have become must-see TV, even if hes being intentionally walked, and the team as a whole continues to be much more entertaining than it was a month ago.?--?Brad Vietrogoski,?Its About the Money17. Pittsburgh PiratesRecord: 67-61 Week 20 ranking: No. 13Sweeping the Brewers in a four-game series over the weekend, the Pirates are 67-61 and just a half-game behind the Cardinals for the NLs second wild-card spot. The team is matched up with the Cardinals six more times this year. Eighteen of the Pirates final 34 games are against the Brewers, Reds and Phillies. -- Ryan P. Morrison (@ryanpmorrison), Inside the Zona18. New York MetsRecord: 66-64 Week 20 ranking: No. 17Since returning from the DL on Aug. 19, Asdrubal Cabrera is 15-for-33 (.454) with four doubles, three homers and nine RBIs, and Yoenis Cespedes is batting .355 with four homers and eight RBIs. Since July 27, Neil Walker is batting .440 with a .490 OBP, seven homers, 15 RBIs and 19 runs. All three players are day-to-day this week with nagging injuries.?-- Joe Janish, (@metstoday), MetsToday.com19. Chicago White SoxRecord: 63-66 Week 20 ranking: No. 20The White Sox have had their issues in 2016, but dont blame Chris Sale and Jose Quintana. The pair were at it again this week, as Sale pitched a complete game with 14 Ks in a loss to Seattle on Thursday, while Quintana got revenge with 7? innings of two-run ball in a win over the Ms on Friday.?--?Jeff Wiser?(@OutfieldGrass24), Inside the Zona20. Colorado RockiesRecord: 62-68 Week 20 ranking: No. 19With Mark Reynolds?gone for the season, Daniel Descalso becomes the Rockies best first baseman. Thats incompatible with the idea that the Rockies are a winning organization. The last Rockies first baseman to log more than 130 games was Todd Helton back in 2009. That was also the last year the Rockies made the playoffs. Signing or developing a reliable first baseman shouldnt be this hard.?--?Richard Bergstrom (@rbergstromjr), Rockies Zingers21. Philadelphia PhilliesRecord: 60-70 Week 20 ranking: No. 21If you checked the stats with your coffee on Sunday morning, you might have noticed the only two Phillies comfortably above the .322 OBP of an Average Joe National Leaguer were?Odubel Herrera?(.360)?and Cesar Hernandez (.354). Maybe their cup of joe makes them jittery, though. Theyve been caught stealing 16 times in 49 attempts, a 32.7 percent rate thats just a sip worse than the 30.4 percent posted by their NL brethren.?--?Richard Bergstrom (@rbergstromjr), Rockies Zingers22. Milwaukee BrewersRecord: 56-74 Week 20 ranking:?No. 23In a time of rebuild, the Brewers have discovered multiple diamonds in the rough, one being utility man Hernan Perez. The 25-year-old has exhibited surprising power, with 13 homers and 47 RBIs, including his first career multihomer game on Saturday night against the Pirates.?-- Gabe Stoltz (@Stoltzy3), Disciples of Uecker23. Oakland AthleticsRecord: 57-73 Week 20 ranking: No. 22The As had an up-and-down week but managed to take a series from the AL Central-leading Indians. After a tough loss on Monday, when Andrew Triggs pitched very well, the bats came alive as Oakland took the next two by 5-1 and 9-1 margins. -- Jeff Wiser (@OutfieldGrass24), Inside the Zona24. Cincinnati RedsRecord: 55-74 Week 20 ranking: No. 28Joey Votto continues to do things that mere mortals simply cannot. He has been on base in 39 of his past 41 starts and is batting .431 in the second half. Votto is on pace to be the first player to hit .400+ in consecutive months since 2010. --?Chad Dotson (@dotsonc), Redleg Nation25. Tampa Bay RaysRecord: 55-74 Week 20 ranking: No. 26It hasnt been a great season for Chris Archer, but since the All-Star break Tampas ace has a 2.94 ERA in eight starts with 62 strikeouts in 54 innings. For the season Archer leads the AL in strikeouts with 202.-- ESPN.com26. Los Angeles AngelsRecord: 56-74 Week 20ranking: No. 25The Halos received some effective starting pitching this week, but all eyes were on Albert Pujols, as he hit his 584th career home run in Wednesdays win over Toronto. The historic blast pushed him past Mark McGwire and into sole possession of 10th on the all-time home run list.?Jeff Wiser (@OutfieldGrass24), Inside the Zona27. San Diego PadresRecord: 55-75 Week 20 ranking: No. 24San Diego claimed Oswaldo Arcia off waivers, making this the fourth major league team for Arcia this season.

Arizona DiamondbacksRecord: 55-76 Week 20 ranking: No. 27Has Yasmany Tomas finally learned to bring his power into games? In 76 games during the seasons first half, Tomas hit 13 home runs, with a .442 slugging percentage. In 34 games since the All-Star break, he has 13 home runs, with a .659 slugging percentage. --?Ryan P. Morrison?(@ryanpmorrison), Inside the Zona29. Minnesota TwinsRecord: 49-81 Week 20 ranking: No. 29That the Twins were swept in Toronto over the weekend, despite scoring 21 runs in three games, speaks to the truly embarrassing state of their pitching staff. The rotations youngest members, Tyler Duffey and Jose Berrios, were both shipped to the minors last week. -- Nick Nelson (@NickNelsonMN), Twins Daily30. Atlanta BravesRecord: 48-83 Week 20 ranking:?No. 30The Braves have a chance to make August their best month of 2016. That coincides with the arrival of Matt Kemp, which has gone well so far, especially for Freddie Freeman, who his hitting .315/.456/.719 with eight home runs since Kemps arrival. -- Martin Gandy (@gondeee), Chop County Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
