CINCINNATI -- Its been about managing expectations this season for the Chicago Cubs. Ben Gedeon Jersey . After a historic start, manager Joe Maddons club has stumbled a bit, losing six of 11.But in a run of fortune the ever-optimistic Maddon can appreciate, the rest of the crowd of National League Central contenders is sliding at precisely the same time.When you stub your toe, its good that everybody else is stubbing their toe at the same time, Maddon said. Its a long year, man.The Cubs (50-26) conclude a three-game series in Cincinnati on Wednesday afternoon. They then will travel to New York to face the Mets, who emphatically ended their dreams of a World Series appearance in last years NLCS.Maddon has kept his club on even-footing for much of this season. The key for any manager, he says, is maintaining a consistent approach himself.Anytime a group sees their leader walk in the same regardless of the circumstances, it lends itself to stability, he says.Following Tuesday nights eventful 7-2, 15-inning win over the Reds, the Cubs lead the second-place St. Louis Cardinals by 10 games in the Central.Kyle Hendricks takes the mound for the Cubs in Wednesdays series finale.Hes coming off a most unusual outing on Friday at Miami when he allowed just one hit through five innings, but that hit was a grand slam.According to Elias, Hendricks was the only pitcher since 1900 to complete at least five innings while allowing a grand slam as his only hit.Hendricks is 1-1 with a 4.34 ERA in five career starts against the Reds.Hell be in familiar territory on Wednesday. Hendricks made his major league debut at Great American Ball Park in 2014.Cincinnati (29-49) will counter with rookie left-hander Cody Reed wholl be making his third career start since debuting on June 18 at Houston. Reed who was acquired last July from the Kansas City Royals in the Johnny Cueto trade, is among the key elements of the Reds rebuilding project.Reed will be making his second start in front of the home crowd on Wednesday. He admitted to being a little nervous first time around on June 24.I threw a lot of pitches and I wasnt getting ahead in the count, said Reed, who also balked in a run. Maybe it was nerves. Usually, my slider works off my fastball, but I didnt have that good command. It was just an off night.The Cubs have had a few of those lately. But, with their fourth straight series win over Cincinnati assured, theyre looking to build some momentum after losing six of seven coming in.Thats why you cant get too frustrated when things dont go your way, Maddon said. For anyone to expect things to always go your way, is totally unrealistic. We talked in spring training about getting off to a good start so that when you do have a hard time, you have something to absorb that moment. Its always more difficult to catch somebody. So, Im pleased with where were at. Andrew Sendejo Jersey . Now, correct me if Im wrong but I saw one official distinctly pointing at the net indicating a good goal but after an inconclusive review they overturned the goal.  Shouldnt the ruling on the ice (good goal) stand after an inconclusive review?  Why was this overturned?  James Veaudry Pembroke, ON --  Hey Kerry, Youll get a lot of these, but why was the Montreal goal against Nashville Saturday night overturned? Eller puts the puck on net and the on ice ruling from the ref behind the net is a Montreal goal. Kendall Wright Jersey . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . . - Levi Browns tenure at left tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers is over before it even began. The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association has decided to launch its own franchise-based Twenty20 competition to tap into talent from the districts and make up for the absence of high-profile matches in Chennai.The Tamil Nadu Premier League, which is likely to be an eight-team event, has been tentatively scheduled from end of August to mid-September this year. It will feature players registered with the state association.We are not having [any matches] so we thought, okay, let us do this for our boys. T20 has become the order of the day, whether you like it or not. So we wanted to jump into the bandwagon, Kasi Viswanathan, the TNCA secretary, told ESPNcricinfo. The details [of tender process] will be finalised by the end of April, and the matches will be played in two venues - Chennai and Dindigul. It will be a great opportunity to improve infrastructure within the districts.N Srinivasan, the TNCA president, is understood to have shot down a proposal for such a league three years ago. It is believed his green signal for the league, which will be modeled on the Karnataka Premier League, could be a small step towards making himself more relevant in the larger context.TNCA officials have murmured privately about how the current BCCI dispensation has been vindictive towards Srinivasan, the former board pressident and ICC chairman, by allotting four non-televised Womens World T20 matches to Chennai. Everson Griffen Jersey. . With Chennai Super Kings also serving a two-year suspension from the IPL, the MA Chidambaram Stadium hasnt had any top-flight cricket in recent times.L Balaji, Tamil Nadu bowling coach-cum-player, said such a league would be a boon for players from outside Chennai. Most of the time they [cricketers from the districts] dont have much exposure before they play at the state level. A professional league such as this would bridge the gap, he said. This would also give the selectors access to talent that may not always be spotted.The state association has also introduced a T20 tournament for Chennais competitive first-division league teams in May. It is a good sign for Tamil Nadu cricket; cricketers of other state have been benefiting from these kind of leagues, Balaji said. We have passionate corporate support for the last 50-60 years and our cricket history is much stronger compared to many other states, so we definitely deserve a league. We dont always play a lot of T20 matches in Chennai. Such leagues will help us in preparing better for domestic T20 competitions. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys CanadaCheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
