SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Air Max 97 España . -- Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander and slugger Miguel Cabrera could be available for the right price. The Chicago White Sox might be prepared to deal Chris Sale, too.Not even a week has passed since the Chicago Cubs won their first World Series title in more than a century, and teams already are involved in trade talk as they position themselves for 2017 and beyond.The conversations this year with GMs started earlier and had more substance to them than I recall in the past, Philadelphia general manager Matt Klentak said Tuesday on the first full day of the GMs annual meeting.A weak free-agent market at many positions has driven deal dialogue. Frustrated they have not won the World Series since 1984 despite a payroll that is among baseballs highest, the Tigers sound ready to embark on a rebuild.We have an open mind to listen on any player on our roster, general manager Al Avila said. Were going to try to make this organization good for the long run, not the short run. Were looking at it as all-in for the long haul. And so the transition, that first step, might be a little bit tough here.A six-time All-Star right-hander who turns 34 in February, Verlander went 16-9 with a 3.04 ERA this year in his best season since 2012. He is owed $28 million in each of the next three seasons.Cabrera, an 11-time All-Star who plays mostly first base these days, turns 34 in April. He will be paid $28 million next year, $30 million in each of the following four seasons and $32 million annually in 2022 and `23.Detroits payroll was about $199 million this year, trailing only the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees and Boston, and the Tigers likely will pay a luxury tax of just under $4 million. An 86-75 record, eight games behind AL Central champion Cleveland, prompted Detroit to reconsider its methods.If anybody thinks that you just can continue to add and add, where does the payroll get to? Avila said.On the South Side of Chicago, the White Sox sprinted to a 23-10 start, creating visions of a Windy City World Series against the Cubs, then sank to a 78-84 record. After winning the 2005 title, the White Sox have not even reached the playoffs since 2008.Sale, a left-hander who turns 27 in March, was an All-Star in each of the last five seasons and has a contract that pays him $12 million next year and includes club options at $12.5 million for 2018 and $15 million for 2019.White Sox GM Rick Hahn said other teams ask him about Sale, but Hahn also discusses the future with owner Jerry Reinsdorf and executive vice president Kenny Williams.I think our goal is to put ourselves in a position to win on a sustainable basis, Hahn said. Weve been focused on a short-term benefit. Weve gotten to the point when we have had our conversations internally with Jerry and Kenny where we realize a better position for the long term is a more prudent path.Given the tendency of baseball executives to follow the leader, they seek to mimic the Cubs. Seeking its first title since 1908, Chicago hired Theo Epstein as president of baseball operations and Jed Hoyer as GM after the team went 71-91 in 2011.As they overhauled the roster, the Cubs lost 101 games the following year, 96 in 2013 and 89 in 2014. As top draft picks reached the major league team, the Cubs added free agents during the past two offseasons and won 97 games in 2015 and a big league-high 103 this year, when they beat Cleveland in a seven-game World Series.Any time youre trading away really good veterans like that, youre setting yourself up for some really long summers, Hoyer cautioned. The messaging in your clubhouse is really difficult. The messaging to your fan base is really difficult. Fans grow to like players on their team, and when you trade away the guy whose jersey they just got for Christmas or you trade away a guys friend and mentor in the clubhouse, whoever that might be, thats hard messaging.Going young, building a core group and then adding veterans in order to peak with a title is the goal. But making the right decisions on draft picks and swaps is the hard part.The idea that you rip the Band-Aid off, be bad for a couple of years, make some trades and always end up on the positive side, I dont think thats realistic, Hoyer said.Avila, who took over as Detroits GM when Dave Dombrowski was fired in August 2015, remembered when he was the Marlins director of Latin American operations under Dombrowski. After winning the 1997 World Series, Florida jettisoned veterans such as Kevin Brown, Al Leiter and Moises Alou under the orders of owner H. Wayne Huizenga, who was in the process of selling the franchise.That was a fire sale, Avila said. This is not a fire sale. This is a change of philosophy.---AP Sports Writer Bob Baum contributed to this report. Air Max Plus 97 . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. Air Max 97 Mercadolibre . The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70. . Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey last Sunday. The fine is the fourth this season for Goldson. He was fined $30,000 for a hit on the New York Jets Jeff Cumberland in Week 1. Coaches always say they remember the losses more than the wins. So we decided to ask coaches about the worst losses of their careers. (Sorry, guys.) Not surprisingly, most instantly had one that stood out and they could recall with precise detail what went wrong. Some were years ago at lower-level schools, while in the case of Clemsons Dabo Swinney, it was the most recent game he played.Heres a sampling of the worst losses from Power 5 coaches careers:Gus Malzahn, Auburn:?Two HS state championships + Florida State 34, Auburn 31, 2014 The worst coaching loss of my career, theres a couple that stand out -- two when I was in high school. Our two state championship games we lost, one was in double overtime. The other one was at the very end, and then probably the Florida State game from 2013. Those three really stick with me. I think about those once a week. One, 1994, that was the first place I coached, and we lost 17-13 at the very end. The other one, when Rhett Lashlee was my quarterback and we lost in double overtime to a team that we probably shouldve beat. And of course the Florida State (national championship) game when they threw a touchdown toward the very end. Those were the three. It motivates you. The only time I think about the championship (we won) is when somebody brings it up, but once a week I think about [those losses] and it just motivates you as a coach.David Cutcliffe, Duke: Miami 30, Duke 27, 2015 Miami, 2015. Our team did an incredible job of getting a win and then Ive never experienced anything like that. Hopefully never will again. Thats without a doubt, no hesitation. Theres not a close second.Bobby Petrino, Louisville:?Rutgers 28, Louisville 25, 2006 Rutgers, 2006. We win that game, we have an opportunity to probably play for the national championship. We were in control of the game and they came back in the second half. They kicked a last-second field goal, which he missed. We jumped offsides. They got to kick it again. It was one of those things that was devastating to our team at the time, but very proud about how we came back and didnt lose another game that year.Dave Clawson, Wake Forest: Youngstown State 37, Villanova 34, 1997 1997, Villanova. We were 12-0 and the No. 1 team in the country and we played Youngstown State that year in the second round of the playoffs. We had a punt blocked. We got sacked and they picked it up and returned it for a touchdown and we lost a heartbreaking game to Youngstown, who went on to win a national championship. Even 20 years later, that one still stings. That was probably a team that was good enough to win a national championship and we beat oursselves against a very well-coached team. Cr7 Air Max 97. Dabo Swinney, Clemson: Alabama 45, Clemson 40, 2016 January 11. That one is still with me.Mark Richt, Miami: Oklahoma 13, Florida State 2, 2001 The last game I coached at Florida State as the offensive coordinator playing in the national championship game against Oklahoma. We scored a whopping zero points. Our defense scored two. I didnt coach well. We didnt play well. It was a chance to be right there to win a third national championship for Coach Bowden. In the last game there it would have been a nice way to finish.Kliff Kingsbury, Texas Tech:?Southern Miss 49, Houston 28, 2011 I was at the University of Houston in 2011, we were 12-0, we were going to go to the Sugar Bowl and we lost in the Conference USA championship game at home to Southern Miss. We were really good. We shouldve went undefeated and we kinda choked. That one still haunts me, yeah.Bill Snyder, Kansas State: Texas A&M 36, Kansas State 33, 1998 You have enough losses that all of them are painful. My guesstimate right now without thinking about it is probably the conference championship game in the 98 season ... where we were the No. 1 team in the nation and played in the conference championship game, had a 16-point lead or something like that going into the fourth quarter and lost the ballgame. That was pretty disappointing.Kirby Smart, Georgia: Auburn 10, LSU 9, 2004 Its hard because you remember the losses so vividly. I guess from being at Alabama for nine years, you certainly remember a lot of the losses, but I guess that being my first year as a full-time SEC coach (at LSU). So I go from being a GA to being a -- because they had just won the national title, so my expectation was were going to win another one at LSU. We had a lot of the players back, and this first really, really big game, in Jordan-Hare, and we had the game won. Everything had to happen exactly right for [Auburn] to win and there was like four or five plays in a row that were really crazy freaky plays. If that game comes back up on ESPN Classic, Ill see it, and Im like, That is amazing that those four things happened for the outcome to be what it did. They went on to an undefeated season. I guess if they had lost four or five games it wouldnt have been as big of a loss, but its a fact that they went on to win them all. Ill be honest with you, when I say it haunts me, its one of the ones that sticks out the most, because I thought we couldve won it.?As told to Heather Dinich and Jared Shanker Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
