NEW YORK -- Mets manager Terry Collins said he thinks he knows who his National League starting pitcher will be in next months All-Star Game, even though the favorite for the job, Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, is headed to the disabled list. Grant Fuhr Jersey .Chicago Cubs righty and Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta might have just moved up the list.There is going to be a lot of consideration, Collins said before the Mets faced the Cubs on Thursday. There are five legitimate names that deserve to start the game. Clayton [was] one of those names. I can tell you Jake was right near the top of the list. I kind of like my guy [Noah Syndergaard] a little bit too. [Johnny] Cueto has great numbers. [Madison] Bumgarner probably deserves a shot.The race for starter is wide open now that Kershaw is out of the mix because of a herniated disk. Arrieta boasts a league-leading 12 wins and 2.10 ERA. Bumgarner is the only starter other than Kershaw with a sub-2.00 ERA, and Cueto is second in the league with 11 wins.It would be great, Arrieta said after hearing what Collins said. It would be an honor, obviously. Most important to me is my start Saturday and four days after that.Collins will get an in-person look at Arrieta when the ace takes the mound against the Mets on Saturday. Collins then can watch his own candidate Sunday, when Syndergaard pitches. Sundays starter for the Cubs, Jon Lester, should be in the mix as well, though Collins didnt mention him.Arrieta was asked whether getting the start would have special meaning, considering his struggles to become established in the big leagues.Im kind of over that, Arrieta said. Ive kind of addressed where Ive come to this point. Its a long way from where I used to be. I do understand that, but as the same time, Ive put most of that behind me.Arrieta has struggled a little recently and has seen his ERA rise above 2.00 for the first time this season. Citi Field was the scene of his worst start in the second half last season, when arm fatigue got the best of him, and the Mets took advantage.Yeah, it stunk, Arrieta said. Ran into a really hot team. New year, different team, different circumstances. Well probably relive some memories that werent very exciting, but nonetheless, that was the NLCS, and someone has to come out ahead.The Mets beat Arrieta and swept the Cubs in the NL Championship Series, so perhaps an All-Star start from their manager would help heal the wound. Collins knows whom he wants to pitch that night; he just isnt telling.I kind of feel like I know whos going to start the game, he said. Cheap Oilers Jerseys China .

LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. BALTIMORE -- Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker O.J. Brigance will take his personal fight against ALS to the baseball diamond on the 77th anniversary of Lou Gehrigs farewell speech at Yankee Stadium.Brigance has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrigs disease. Soon after Brigance was diagnosed in 2007, he and his wife, Chanda, launched a campaign to help other people with ALS.Gehrig died two years after declaring himself the luckiest man on the face of the earth in his 1939 speech. Brigance will honor the former Yankees first baseman by participating in the traditional first-pitch ceremony Monday night at the home of the Class A Aberdeen IronBirds.Lou Gehrigs words still echo loudly the courage, humility and tenacity that he displayed on the baseball field, as well as in his fight against ALS, Brigance said. His ability to stand unflappable in the face of his toughest opponent ever serves as an inspiration to me, and I am sure to many others in the ALS community. I, too, am one of the most blessed men on the earth. Ryan Strome Jersey. Brigance is the only player to win a Canadian Football League title and a Super Bowl for a team in the same city, Baltimore. He was a special teams contributor for the Ravens in 2000, when the squad earned a wild-card berth in the playoffs and went on to beat the New York Giants to become NFL champions.He now serves in the front office for the Ravens. Brigance, who uses a wheelchair and a communication device that translates his thoughts, is an inspiring figure within the organization and to many battling ALS.The Brigance Brigade Foundation has raised millions of dollars toward providing encouragement and equipment to people living with ALS. Some of the money is also used to find a cure.The ALS community has come a long way since Lou Gehrigs speech at Yankee Stadium, Chanda Brigance said, but there is still so far to go. Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
