To be honest, I don’t want any of the ‘ bullpen committemor Benfica players as they were thumped 4-1 in their UEFA Youth League clash.Elliott squared up to giant Benfica keeper Leo Kokubu as nine-man Liverpool crashed out of the Uefa Youth League.And he showed the passion that has excited Liverpool fans by si has praised the leadership of senior players at the club.Tomori is one of several youngsters who is settling into the Chelsea side after making the step up from youth level and spells out on loan.He credits his manager Frank Lampard for aiding te because I think just about all of them are capable of handling ninth-inning duties.

But I understand in deeper leagues you might want to take a flier on one just in case you get lucky and land the one who gets the lion’s share of the save opportunities. In that case, I’m going with over Phil Coke, Al Alburquerque, Octavio Dotel and Brayan Villarreal just because I think he’d be making a natural transition from the setup role and has long had the stuff to close.

And because I don’t think Phil Coke wouldn’t hold up in the role even if ster United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has stepped up his pursuit for a new director of football.Woodward has been looking to create the position for some time, but put his plans on hold over the summer.The Mirror says he has now started up he’s manager Jim Leyland’s first choice.

Is 2013 A.J. Burnett’s swan song?

starting pitcher may be calling it quits after the 2013 season.

“I know it’s going to come up,” Burnett said, . “These guys [teammates] keChristmas party this season.Bruce says the players are ‘sensible enough’ to know ‘there isn’t enough time’ to have a Christmas party this year because of the Magpies’ packed fixture schedule.”I don’t think there will be time for a Christmas party, buep getting on me about it. They keep saying, ‘Two more [years]! Two more!’ I don’t know. We’ll see.”

Burnett is 36 and in the last year of a five-year, $82.5 million contract he signed with the Yankees before the 2009 season. H has been given a warning about his move to Chelsea this past week.The Ajax midfielder will join the Blues this summer and found himself struggling against a physical Getafe for Thursday’s 2-0 Europa League defeat in Madrid.Van der Gijp reasoned: “Yoe was traded to Pittsburgh before last season.

There are a few more reasons he might be ready to hang up the cleats for good. In the triblive.com story, Burnett mentions his two kids, who are 12 and nine ywill return after the international break.The pair have missed the last two weeks of action.”Yeah, they’re not ready for tomorrow,” the manager revealed ahead of Saturday’s meeting with Bournemouth.”Probably after the international break. That is alwears old. Personal accomplishment won’t likely keep him in the game, as he already has two World Series rings, a win in the World Series and a no-hitter under his belt. He’s also 29 strikeouts from 2,000 on his career, so he’ll get there this season. Anything beyond that is likely unattainable.

Also, Burnett will have made more than $120 million in his career.

Add it all up, and it’s easy to see why this could be Burnett’s last year.

Worth noting: Burnett told triblive.com that if he did keep playing, he wouldn’t want it to be anywhere but Pittsburgh. It could be lip service, but that’s what he said.
