Portland, OR - A crucial clash in the Western Conference playoff race takes place at Providence Park on Saturday as Cascadia Cup rivals Vancouver Whitecaps FC and the Portland Timbers square off. You can catch all of the action live on TSN 1, 3, 4, and 5 at 5pm et/2pm pt. Not only is the game a battle between two rivals, but the teams are separated by just one point in the race for the final playoff spot in the West, currently held by Vancouver. With six games to play, these two figure to battle it out for the final spot, and Saturdays game will be the final meeting of the teams. The Whitecaps come into the game having won once in the last six games after a 2-1 defeat to FC Dallas last time out. Erik Hurtado equalized for the Caps in the 67th, but Blas Perez netted the winner for FCD 11 minutes later, spoiling a good performance from Carl Robinsons men. "I thought we done a lot of very good things within the game, but games turn on very fine moments," said Robinson. "The game is about both boxes. It doesnt really matter what you do in the middle of the field. Its about being precise and being detailed in the two boxes. We could have created a little bit more. We played well in patches, we dug deep. Third game in a week, which was always going to be difficult." Vancouver has had one week to regroup and prepare for Saturdays clash, while Portland was busy with the CONCACAF Champions League on Tuesday, dispatching Olimpia, 4-2. Portland has drawn its last two games in league play, and the club came from a goal down against Colorado last time out to snatch a 2-2 draw as substitute Gaston Fernandez leveled the proceedings in the 76th minute. "I think it says a lot about the attitude of our entire team, that we get guys that come into the game and they do a job even though they didnt start the game," said Portland head coach Caleb Porter. "That makes my job tough, because obviously we get goals off guys coming in off the bench, and then theyre motivating you to play in the next game, which Im fine with." Portland may be outside the playoff picture at the moment, but Porters team has the chance to collect some points in the coming weeks with a match at struggling Toronto FC before back-to-back games against second-from-the-bottom San Jose. A win on Saturday could be the start of a playoff push for the Timbers, but a loss would put added pressure on Portland over the final five games. Nike Air Max 270 Damen Günstig Kaufen .

Nike Air Max 270 Schweiz Günstig . A-Rod is also disqualified from any post-season play. So at the tender age of 38, he will miss all of next season. As a result of missing the coming season, hes also out $25 million (which coincidentally is my hourly rate).The Toronto Blue Jays moved out a player who has been part of the organization since being drafted in 2004, getting a pitcher, and some roster flexibility, in return. Numbers Game breaks down the deal sending Adam Lind to Milwaukee. The Brewers Get: 1B/LF Adam Lind. Lind, 31, has been a productive power hitter, slugging more than 20 home runs four times in his career, but is coming off a season in which he was hitting for doubles power, hitting just six home runs in 96 games, yet hitting a career-high .321, with an .860 OPS that was his highest since 2009. Hes a crusher against right-handed pitching, hitting .293 with an .860 OPS for his career, but not nearly as capable when facing southpaws (.212 average, .588 OPS). That split does suggest that Lind is best suited as a platoon player, but the Brewers had Mark Reynolds and Lyle Overbay at first base last year and neither is under contract for 2015, so there is room for Lind in the Milwaukee lineup. That Lind is a subpar fielder is all the more reason for the Brewers to have another option available to support Lind at first. Linds contract has team options for $7.5-million in 2015 and $8-million for 2016, entirely reasonable for a productive offensive player, even if hes not ideally suited to a full-time role. Platooning against right-handers is still good for about three-quarters of the at-bats. The Blue Jays Get: RHP Marco Estrada. Estrada is a 31-year-old who surrendered a major-league leading 29 home runs last season, leaving him with a 4.88 ERA despite a 1.20 WHIP in 150 2/3 innings. He finished the year in the bullpen, and was lights-out in that role in September, not allowing a run and only six base-runners in 16 1/3 innings. That small--sample bullpen success might indicate a role in which Estrada can be effective for the Blue Jays, but his career numbers as a starter (4.dddddddddddd20 ERA, 1.17 WHIP in 71 starts) are better than his career relief stats (4.29 ERA, 1.25 WHIP in 83 relief appearances), which probably leaves Estrada as something of a swingman for the Toronto pitching staff. Maybe sixth or seventh on the starter depth chart, capable of making spot starts if necessary, but likely not the ideal solution to any teams starting pitching woes. Estrada has lost some velocity and his average fastball is clocked at 89.0 MPH (per Fan Graphs), which poses problems -- thats the pitch that gets hit. He has increased the use of his change-up, which has been very effective the past couple seasons, but hell have to get his fastball back if hes going to be a contributor. Estrada earned $3,325,000 in 2014 and is arbitration eligible, so that price will likely go up but its likely to present a cost savings to the Blue Jays after they shed Linds salary. The Blue Jays will need to fill Linds at-bats, mostly at designated hitter, but that could allow 1B Edwin Encarnacion to get more rest and there is likely some hope that Toronto might be able to salvage value out of their recent waiver addition, 1B Justin Smoak, a 27-year-old switch-hitter who hasnt lived up to advance billing, hitting .224 with a .689 OPS in 566 career games. Verdict: Hard to imagine that Estrada, a homer-prone pitcher going to a hitter-friendly park, will provide more value for Toronto than Lind will in Milwaukee, but maybe added salary flexibility can come into play for Toronto in other offseason deals.
