Patrick Chan will know exactly where he stands when he takes to the ice for the mens free skate Friday evening at the Iceberg Skating Palace, although he may want to block out the crowd reaction. Thats because the Toronto native will once again follow Japanese dynamo Yuzuru Hanyu, who leads after the short program in Sochi. The 23-year-old Canadian will skate fourth, immediately follow Hanyu. In the short program, Chan competed two skaters after his 19-year-old rival. Chan will skate to The Four Seasons by Vivaldi in the hopes of making up a deficit of 3.93 points. Javier Fernandez of Spain, currently sitting in third place, will be the first skater to hit the ice in the final group of six. Like Hanyu, Fernandez is coached by Canadian Brian Orser, the 1988 Olympic silver medallist. Fernandez is followed by Daisuke Takahashi. The former world champion and 2010 Olympic bronze medallist from Japan is in fourth place. The random draw in the Olympic setup has resulted in the regrettable result that the fifth- and sixth-place skaters end the show. Those competitors are Peter Liebers of Germany and Jason Brown of the United States. While they have a chance at reaching the podium, its highly unlikely they could make up enough ground to win the competition. Many figure skating observers believed veteran Brian Joubert should have been in the final grouping on the basis of a strong short program, but the Frenchman will instead be near the beginning of the penultimate group. Kevin Reynolds of Coquitlam, B.C. will be up 12th in the free skate, which gets underway at 10 a.m. ET. Reynolds gamely persevered after hitting the deck twice in the short, leading to a 17th-place showing. Demar Dotson Buccaneers Jersey .Y. -- Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Wednesday that J. Tom Crabtree Buccaneers Jersey . 2 pair Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares 4-6, 6-4, 10-8 on Sunday.

With the transfer window open, hundreds of accounts rack up their followers alleging to know of an impending transfer. Michael Koenen Buccaneers Jersey . Pinizzotto, 29, has recorded seven points (six goals, one assist) and 67 penalty minutes in 21 games this season with the American Hockey Leagues San Antonio Rampage. Combs, 25, has 21 points (12 goals, nine assists) and 20 penalty minutes in 37 games over two seasons with Rampage. Lavonte David Buccaneers Jersey . The announcement was made Tuesday. Auto racing returned to Detroit in 2012 following a four-year absence thanks in part to a three-year deal with Chevy.OAKLAND, Calif. -- Terry Francona asked crew chief Mike Winters to review a collision at the plate, and the umpire obliged. The call was confirmed, denying Cleveland the go-ahead run, but the Indians manager appreciated how smoothly the new replay process went. The Indians later delivered on their chances in the ninth, with Nyjer Morgan hitting a go-ahead sacrifice fly against new Athletics closer Jim Johnson as Cleveland sent Oakland to its major league-record 10th straight opening loss with a 2-0 victory Monday night. Nick Swisher added an RBI single against Johnson (0-1), who was then pulled from his As debut to boos from the sellout crowd. "I would have booed me, too. I (stunk) today, Ill admit it," Johnson said. "Thats fine. I deserved it. I expect that. The next time theyre probably going to be cheering." In the sixth, Winters became the first umpire to initiate a review under the expanded replay system, making the call after a collision at home plate. "Basically with the new rule I just wanted to confirm what I saw that the catcher did not block the plate unnecessarily," Winters said. "He was in fair territory, he gave the runner plenty of plate to go to. I just wanted to be sure." The call was confirmed in 59 seconds and the game remained scoreless. Winters wanted to see if As catcher John Jaso had illegally blocked the plate under baseballs new rule regarding home plate collisions. With Michael Brantley on third and one out, Asdrubal Cabrera hit a comebacker that ricocheted off pitcher Sonny Grays foot. Gray quickly retrieved the ball and fired home to Jaso, who tagged a sliding Brantley. Francona came out to discuss the play. "I just wanted to check and see if Jaso had blocked the plate. Weve all discussed the new rulings and what youre allowed to do and what you arent," Francona said. "I just asked him if hed look because I thought maybe he had gotten there a little too early. ... I appreciated him checking." Oaklands Josh Donaldson hit a single off the top of the wall near the 400-foot sign in centre in the eighth, but Daric Barton held up at second waiting to tag in case the ball was caught, and the As failed to score the go-ahead run. "That was interesting," Francona said.dddddddddddd Cody Allen (1-0) then struck out Jed Lowrie and retired Brandon Moss on a grounder to first. Justin Masterson, in his third straight opening day outing, and Gray dueled before the bullpens took over to decide it. Masterson allowed three hits, struck out four and walked one in seven scoreless innings, lowering his ERA on opening day to 0.86. The game began just four minutes behind schedule under blue skies, a best-case scenario considering the downpour a couple of hours earlier. Grey walked the first two batters of the game but quickly settled to throw six scoreless innings with seven strikeouts and three walks in a 105-pitch opener. The right-hander, who dueled with Detroit ace Justin Verlander in Game 2 of last falls division series, earned the start after Jarrod Parker was lost to season-ending Tommy John surgery. Yan Gomes went 1 for 3 only hours after finalizing a new $23 million, six-year contract with the Indians. He was plunked in the left elbow in the ninth. John Axford finished for Cleveland, striking out Nick Punto to end it with runners on first and second. A couple dozen grounds crew workers carried large brooms to sweep water off the tarp all afternoon. The Indians briefly came out to right field to go through some warmups during a break in the rain some three hours before first pitch. The two-time reigning AL West champion As took the field 90 minutes before first pitch under the lights when the rain finally slowed -- some even in short sleeves. It started pouring again shortly after the game ended. NOTES: Cleveland CF Michael Bourn, on the DL to start the year with a left hamstring strain, ran down a ball and hit a pair of doubles in a minor league game. He was set to go to Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, and Francona expected a meeting when the team returns home to face Minnesota on Thursday. ... Gray was Oaklands ninth different opening day starter in nine years. ... Masterson was the first Indians pitcher to start three straight openers since CC Sabathia from 2006-08. Ex-As RHP Bartolo Colon did it for Cleveland in 2000-02. ... Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson threw out the ceremonial first pitch. ' ' '
