ST. Tyrone Crawford Cowboys Jersey . PETERSBURG, Florida – Drew Hutchison meant business when he arrived in Dunedin for spring training. He had a point to prove: hes back, and hes not worried about his surgically repaired elbow, as he enters what he hopes will be his first full season in the major leagues. "I expected make the team and now Im ready to go perform," said Hutchison after his final Grapefruit League start on March 27. Manager John Gibbons and pitching coach Pete Walker rave about Hutchisons poise. They love his mound presence. Theyve been thrilled with his bounce back from Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery dating back to his appearances in the Arizona Fall League. Hutchison, a command and control pitcher, routinely pumped his fastball to the plate at 92-94 miles per hour, painting the corners along the way. "We like him," said manager John Gibbons. "Hes got a chance to be a real good one. Ever since he had the Tommy John hes thrown better than he was." Results in spring training often dont matter. With Hutchison, they did. He was competing for a roster spot. He needed to show the Blue Jays he was healthy and could be consistently effective. As a young player, just 23 years old, with options, he needed to drastically outperform veterans who were out of options. He accomplished all that with a 1.80 ERA and 0.800 WHIP in four Grapefruit League starts, and gets the nod in Tuesday nights second game of the season-opening series in Tampa Bay. Not that it surprises him. "I thought Id come into camp and do exactly what I did," said Hutchison. "Thats my expectation level and thats what I feel I would be able to do." Hutchison often repeats variations of the word "expect." He has high expectations of himself, he expects to succeed; hes expecting a long and healthy career. He speaks with supreme confidence but without a hint of arrogance. Its all matter of fact. "I dont understand, at least from my perspective thats just the way Ive approached things and thats the way Ive always been," said Hutchison. "I expect that out of myself and now its time, spring trainings over and its time to go perform and win because thats what its all about." Whether Hutchisons approach translates into a successful season will be known only with the passage of time. Gibbons and Walker are looking for someone on which they can rely. The club has a reasonable idea of what to expect from R.A. Dickey and Mark Buehrle. It isnt clear what the Blue Jays will get from Hutchison and Brandon Morrow, both because of their respective injury histories and because neither has shown the ability, yet, to be a front-line starter over the course of a full season. "Hes a pitcher," said Gibbons. "It takes effort for him but hes kind of an effortless type guy. I think hes going to have a big, big year for us. I really do." Surely Hutchison must have had his doubts during the laborious rehab of his elbow? He insists he didnt. "Thats just the way Ive always been," said Hutchison. "I just expect a lot out of myself and I expect a high level from myself. Thats not to try to be, you know, thats just how I am." Chuck Howley Jersey . According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the Leafs remain interested in re-signing Raymond, but several other teams have reached out to the former 25-goal scorer. Lance Dunbar Cowboys Jersey .com) - The Vancouver Canucks hope an upcoming stretch of home games will be enough to get the club into the postseason. http://www.footballcowboysstore.us/authentic-robert-newhouse-cowboys-jersey/ .com) - Andy Murray is back in the Australian Open final.CHICAGO - Paul Maholm sees no reason the Chicago Cubs cant win, even though they havent done much of that lately. The Cubs agreed to a one-year contract that guarantees the left-hander US$4.75 million and should add depth to their starting rotation. The deal announced Tuesday includes a $4.25 million salary for this year and $6.5 million club option for 2013 and $500,000 buyout. "The guys that are there have the ability to win," Maholm said. "For whatever reason, it wasnt happening." He says theres no clear-cut favourite in the NL Central and that the Cubs have a chance as long as "everybody just has their normal years." The 29-year-old Maholm made 26 starts for Pittsburgh last season, going 6-14 despite a 3.66 ERA, before shutting it down because of a left shoulder strain. He was 53-73 over seven seasons with the Pirates. Maholm said the shoulder shouldnt be an issue. Hes been long tossing and plans to start bullpen sessions next week. "It was a pulled muscle," Maholm said. "It wasnt anything huge. More or less the timing of when it happened is the reason I missed the end of the season. I just wanted to make sure that it was healthy and I didnt do anything further to my shoulder." In Chicago, he joins Matt Garza, Ryan Dempster of Gibsons, B.C., and newcomer Chris Volstad in the rotation, along with Randy Wells and possibly Jeff Samardzija. The Cubs have been listening to offers for Garza and would like top prospects, but general manager Jed Hoyer insisted they werent setting themselves up to make another move by signing Maholm. Kyle Wilber Jersey. "Im not going to comment on trade rumours, but it is important to know that this isnt a precursor deal," Hoyer said. Meanwhile, reliever Kerry Wood remains unsigned. Hoyer said management still would like to get a deal completed and retain the popular veteran. "We continue to want Kerry back in Chicago, and weve offered him a substantial raise and we certainly hope it gets done," he said. As for Maholm, Hoyer said, "His won-loss record really doesnt reflect his ability. Hes pitched on some teams in Pittsburgh that have struggled, but hes been a guy that takes the ball, eats a lot of innings and has really kept his team in games." Maholm allowed two earned runs or fewer in 14 of his 26 starts last season but got the win in only six of those outings. His run support average of 3.38 was the fifth-lowest in the National League. Maholm said he preferred to stay in the NL, particularly in the Central now that slugger Albert Pujols is gone and Prince Fielder is possibly on his way out. Another draw in Chicago was playing for new Cubs manager Dale Sveum, who managed in the Pittsburgh system before Maholm arrived. "A lot of guys that I played with in Pittsburgh played for him and loved him," Maholm said. "Hes very knowledgeable, (has a) passion for the game, works hard. I got the chance to talk to him a little after Christmas, and Im looking forward to getting to pick his mind."
