Jays. Does that make him the greatest Bl Antworten

ORLANDO, Fla. - Last week, the Orlando Magic left the Boston Celtics home court having just received one of their most demoralizing losses of the season.The Magic returned the favour, but the Celtics made them work for it.Tobias Harris scored 19 points and the Magic hung on to beat the Celtics 100-95 on Tuesday night. Nik Vucevic and Kyle OQuinn each added 18 points as Orlando ended a four-game losing streak.Orlando looked to be in control in the second half and led by as many as 27 points. But that advantage was trimmed all the way down to three points in the closing minutes. The Magic were outscored 35-15 in the fourth quarter, but never trailed.We just got away from what we were doing throughout the whole game, and they capitalized off that, Harris said. But we got it together toward the end of the game and came out with the victory.Tyler Zeller led the Celtics with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Avery Bradley added 20 points, and Kelly Olynyk 14.Boston looked sluggish offensively for most of the night, connecting on just 38 per cent of its field goal attempts.Orlando was up 25 entering the final period, but fell apart in the closing minutes, relying on outside shots and turning the ball over five times.The Celtics, who couldnt find the basket in the first half, scored from all over the court in the final 12 minutes.Olynyks 3-pointer got Boston within 90-87 with just 2:34 to play, but the Magic were able to cobble together enough free throws in the final 2 minutes to preserve the win.Obviously in the fourth quarter they got on their heels a little bit, but its a lot easier to be a team coming back than the team with the lead, Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.The Magic were the beneficiaries of an inept first-quarter shooting performance by the Celtics. Boston connected on only one of its first 17 field goal attempts in period, and finished the quarter 2 for 22.Well continue to improve, Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said. What I do love about this group is we lost multiple games in a row and we kept a team to 30 points in the first half. So while you can definitely look at some negative, well pull some positive out of this also.___TIP-INSCeltics: The Celtics set new season lows for points in a quarter (9), and points in a half (30) on Tuesday night.Magic: Reserve G Willie Green, who was inactive Sunday against the 76ers with flu-like symptoms, was activated Tuesday night.NELSONS RETURNCeltics G Jameer Nelson received a noticeable ovation from Magic fans when he was introduced in the pregame. Nelson later acknowledged them with a wave while a video tribute played on the scoreboard during a timeout. Nelson played with Orlando from 2004 to 2014, before being waived this past summer. He left second in regular-season games played for Orlando at 651, behind only Nick Anderson (692).MAGIC BIG GIVEAs part of the NBA Cares Season of Giving initiative, the Magic and Walt Disney World surprised David Duppins, his wife and four children with gifts including Ringling Brothers Circus tickets, Disney theme park passes and a vacation to Hawaii.

Part of the reason, of course, is the reluctance that teams have in parting with first-round draft picks as compensation for signing certain players, who come with that price tag attached. That made me wonder how valuable first-round picks really actually are. I took a look at three teams, one top dog, the New York Yankees, one middle-of-the-road club in the Toronto Blue Jays and one team generally at the back of the pack, the Chicago Cubs. Since the amateur draft began in 1965, the Yankees have chosen 51 players in the first-round, including supplemental picks. Twenty-seven of those spent some time in the Bigs and 24 didnt make it. The success rate is 52 per cent and this is a team that usually picks in the back end of the first round. The Yankees best first-rounder, without question, is Derek Jeter, taken at number six overall in 1992. The Yankees have done alright with compensation picks for losing free agents, as well. In 1996, they got a quality lefty in Eric Milton for losing infielder Randy Velarde. In 2004, they chose right-hander Phil Hughes when Andy Petitte jumped ship to the Astros before ultimately returning to the Yankees where he finished his career. In 2006, they chose righties Ian Kennedy and Joba Chamberlain upon losing curveball specialist Tom "Flash" Gordon. You might think the Cubs would have far great success with firsts than the Yanks because they miss the playoffs so often. However, the gap is only five per cent on the success scale. The Cubs have drafted 61 players in the first round since 1965 with 35 making it to the Majors. In other words, a percentage of 57 versus the Yankees 52 per cent. The Cubs top picks over the years have included Joe Carter in 1981, Rafael Palmeiro in 1985 and the flame-throwing Kerry Wood in 1995. In 2007, the Cubs used a supplemental first-round pick to take Josh Donaldson, who has since blossomed into a very good player with the Oakland Athletics. The only other supplemental pick of note made by the Cubs was Palmeiro, whom they were able to select for losing reliever Tim Stoddard to free agency. The Cubs made, without a doubt, the worst decision in the history of free agency when they allowed Hall of Famer Greg Maddux to walk away to the Atlanta Braves after the 1992 season. The Cubbies got two draft picks in return, which they used the following June to take pitcher Jon Ratliff and infielder Kevin Orie. In the following three seasons, Maddux won three Cy Young Awards and helped the Braves to a World Series title in 1995. Ratliff and Orie quickly faded into obscuritty.dddddddddddd Where do the Blue Jays fit in? Well, since they came in the American League in 1977, they have made 64 first-round picks and 36 have seen time in the Majors, good for a 56 per cent success rate. The Blue Jays have had pretty good success with first-rounders over the years, including Lloyd Moseby (1978,) Ed Sprague (1988,) Shawn Green (1991,) Shannon Stewart (1992,) Chris Carpenter (1993,) Roy Halladay (1995,) Billy Koch (1996,) Ricky Romero (2005,) Brett Cecil (2007) and J.P Arencibia in 2007...oh, well on that one. Righty Dustin McGowan (2000,) whos battled through a myriad of injuries, is still around as well. The Blue Jays have greatly utilized their supplemental picks and, well, you really couldnt do much better than they have. When lefty Bud Black, now the manager of the San Diego Padres, signed with the San Francisco Giants, the Jays used the pick they received to take Green. When knuckleballer Tom Candiotti left for the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Jays wound up with Stewart and when the "Terminator" Tom Henke returned to the Texas Rangers after the 92 World Series triumph, the Blue Jays used their pick to select future Cy Young winner, Carpenter. Of course, there a few in the not-so-good category, too. When Hall of Famer Roberto Alomar left for the Baltimore Orioles, the payback was Joe Lawrence. I guess the bottom line is that there are no sure things, but if you have a top-notch scouting staff and good development staff, you can risk losing those good, but not great free agents. But the ones you target as stars, you can never let walk away. - ESPN came out with its annual top 100 list of All-time Major League greats. Roy Halladay and Dave Winfield fell within the top 125 and received honorable mentions. Five players, though, who wore the Blue Jays uniform (albeit, briefly in some cases) cracked the top 100. Knuckleballer Phil Niekro was number 100, Paul Molitor came in at 78, Roberto Alomar at 74, "The Big Hurt" Frank Thomas at 70 and Rickey Henderson at number 14. Of the seven in total, Halladay was the only one drafted and developed by the Jays. Does that make him the greatest Blue Jay of all-time? Its a great argument, but my vote is still with Alomar, even though he only spent five seasons in Toronto, and my top Blue Jays pitcher, though just by a hair, is Dave Stieb. - Its great to see former Blue Jays fan favourite John McDonald signing a minor league deal with the Los Angeles Angels with an invitation to spring training, but sad to see Vernon Wells get released by the Yankees after being designated for assignment.
