HOUSTON - Colby Rasmus never really took to living in Toronto in the 3 1/2 seasons he played for the Blue Jays. http://www.uachaussuresoldes-fr.fr/pas-cher-air-max-tn.html .Born in Georgia and raised in Alabama, Rasmus has returned from Canada to play for the Houston Astros and couldnt be more excited about the change.Wearing a pullover with camouflage details and speaking with his syrupy Alabama drawl, Rasmus raved about the move.Everythings bigger in Texas and Ive always heard great things about it, he said. Ive got a couple of big trucks so my big trucks will fit in the big city. In Toronto youve got a little-bitty garage and I had to leave my big trucks at home. So that will definitely be fun for me.The free agent outfielder was introduced Wednesday, a day after he finalized an $8 million, one-year contract with the Astros. The deal followed Houstons decision to trade last years starting centre fielder, Dexter Fowler, to the Chicago Cubs.Rasmus has hit at least 18 homers in each of his last three seasons, including tying a career-best with 23 in 2012. The lefty batter hit .225 with 40 RBIs and 21 doubles in 104 games for the Blue Jays last year.The signing reunites him with Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow, who selected him in the first round of the 2005 amateur draft for the St. Louis Cardinals.As scouting director, he was my first-ever selection, so we were sort of tied together in the St. Louis media throughout his rise through the minor leagues, Luhnow said. It was a good opportunity for us to reunite. Its always nice when you have some pre-existing relationship with a player and you know a little bit about them.Luhnow believes Rasmus will be a nice addition to a lineup already laced with power hitters including Chris Carter, George Springer and Evan Gattis.Hes got speed, Luhnow said. Hes got power. Hes a good defender. I think hes really going to add something to our lineup and be a really complementary piece to what were putting together.Rasmus played for the Cardinals from 2009 until he was traded to the Blue Jays in July 2011. Hes looking forward to working with Luhnow again.We always got along and had a good rapport with each other when I got drafted and throughout the minor leagues, Rasmus said. To be back with him I knew it would be a good place for me because we understand each other and hes known me for a long time and knows how I work and things that make me tick.The 28-year-old said Houston was where he wanted to be since he became a free agent. He had been interested in the Astros for years, since discussing what its like to play here with former Astros star Lance Berkman.I played with Lance Berkman with the Cardinals and he loved playing here, Rasmus said. To hear him talk about it, I thought it would be a good place for me.Rasmus started 80 games in centre field last season and has played both right and left field in his six-year big league career. Hes most comfortable in centre field but is open to playing wherever new manager A.J. Hinch decides to put him.Ill be ready to do anything that the team needs, Rasmus said. Weve got a couple of other guys that can play some good centre field. So moving around and doing some things that A.J. might think will help us do that — Im game in with that. I just want to come in and win and winning is going to be the key for us.The majority of Houstons outfielders are versatile enough to play all three positions. Jake Marisnick, who was acquired in a trade with the Marlins last season, is the most likely alternative in centre if Rasmus doesnt get the job.My goal this spring was to provide A.J. and his staff with as many options as possible and backups to those options, Luhnow said when asked if Ramus would start in centre. Hes got options and if one doesnt work he can always move to another. We know that we signed Colby to be in our lineup. He certainly will be facing probably all the righties and a decent amount of lefties. Nike Air Max Tn 2016 .

A Liverpool native, the 31-year-old Orr will be cheering on both his beloved Reds and 21-year-old nephew Jon Flanagan who is turning heads with his play at fullback for Liverpool. "Its no doubt the biggest game of young Jonathans career," said Orr, who has been exchanging texts with Flanagan this week. "Being a big Liverpool fan myself Ill definitely be watching it. So hhopefully he plays really well, gets all the plaudits and Liverpool come good and win and set themselves up to take the Premier League title. http://www.uachaussuresoldes-fr.fr/pas-cher-under-armour-outlet-france/pas-cher-ua-phenom-proto.html. " The Anfield faithful have dubbed Flanagan the Red Cafu, a tribute to former Brazilian star fullback Cafu. Even Cafu has taken notice of Flanagan. "Good to see the RedCafu is playing well! Liverpool amazing to watch!," the Brazilian tweeted last month. Orr and TFC captain Steven Caldwell, with their sons in tow, took in a recent Reds game at a local pub that serves as home to Canadian Liverpool supporters.
