Starting pitching is one of the areas where the Toronto Blue Jays need improvement and after rumours of the Jays interest in Chicago Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija surfaced on Saturday, general manager Alex Anthopoulos joined MLB Network Radio to discuss his off-season progress. Justin Abdelkader Jersey . "I wont comment on specific rumours, but I will say were definitely exploring starters with teams," Anthopoulos told MLB Network Radio on Sunday. "We have not made an offer to anybody with respect to a starter. If there is something out there, that we have made an offer, that is not accurate. That doesnt mean we are not inquiring." As far as direction goes, upgrading the rotation remains a priority for the Jays. "Were going to earmark most of our money for starting pitching," said Anthopoulos. When asked about interest in free agent pitchers Matt Garza and Bronson Arroyo, and catchers Jarrod Saltalamacchia and A.J. Pierzynski, Anthopoulos said the Jays have been checking out the market on many players. "Weve probably talked about all of those guys; definitely all of the starters. (We) definitely made calls on all of those guys trying to get a sense on what the price might be," said Anthopoulos. "Whether its guys like Garza and so on, those guys are clear cut; they would be upgrades to any team. I think any team would have interest in guys like that." Anthopoulos also stated that dealing either of their sluggers has not yet entered into the equation. "We havent entertained the idea of trading either Bautista or Encarnacion," said Anthopoulos. Earlier this month, Howard Eskin of FOX Philadelphia and WIP Radio reported that the Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies were in serious talks on a deal that would see four-time All Star and two-time home run champion Jose Bautista return to the National League and the Phillies. Danny DeKeyser Jersey . The Brazilian-born strikers brace drew him level with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo as the leagues leading scorers with 17 goals apiece through 16 rounds. "The important thing is to help the team win, not the goals," Diego Costa said. After a first half dominated by defence, Atletico pressed Valencia into its area and Diego Costa did the rest. Brett Hull Jersey . -- Kael Mouillierat scored three times and set up one more as the St. http://www.redwingshockeyauthentic.com/alex-delvecchio-jersey/ . A last-minute leveler ensured the two-time defending champion remained nine points ahead of Roma, which drew 0-0 at bitter rival Lazio in the capital derby.ST. PETERSBURG, Florida Its been almost seven years since the Blue Jays last won a series at Tropicana Field. Theyll have to capture both Wednesday and Thursday nights games to break the unbelievable skid, which has reached 19 consecutive series either lost or tied. Manager John Gibbons, who was in his first tenure as Blue Jays manager the last time the club took a series from the Rays in St. Petersburg, from April 6-8, 2007, has taken to calling the barren stadium his teams "House of Horrors." "Weve seen some crazy things happen here," said Gibbons. "They open the door. I dont know what it is. Its something and they expect it over on the other side. Theyve done it so many times, they expect it." The Blue Jays were waxed, 9-2, on Opening Day Monday, a game in which Murphys Law applied. Everything that could go wrong did, from R.A. Dickeys unimpressive outing to Jose Reyes pulling up lame with a recurrence of the hamstring inflammation that plagued him late in spring training. Even Tuesdays 4-2 victory, a game in which Toronto led 4-0 heading to the bottom of the eighth, was a nail-biter at the end. The Rays had the tying run in scoring position with two out in the ninth and the winning run at the plate. "You know its tough to win here and it usually takes nine tough innings," said Gibbons. While it may sound like an obvious, generalized comment, first baseman-designated hitter Adam Lind believes its important to play with the lead against the Rays and the sooner, the better. "Its hard to come from behind against Tampa," said Lind. "When youre in the lead, theyre out of their comfort zone and when youre running out of innings or wherever they want to be with their pitching staff where they can just tack on a run here or a run there. Its paramount to get a lead against these guys because even when its 1-0, theyre definitely in the drivers seat." There are teams that are harder to prepare for than others. There are teams that are harder to play against than others. "Its tough, man," said Lind. "You just tell by how they pitch, (pitching coach) Jim Hickey, its like we play them every game how they pitch us. They get excellent execution from their pitching staff and their whole defensive side of the ball is probably the best in the game." Challenges with the challenge Adam Lind offered the line of the season so far on the topic of managers challenges and the ramifications of the new rule. "Weell, I know Bud Seligs worked his whole career to get the pace of play up and now were just back to square one," said Lind. Steve Yzerman Jersey. "I enjoy that theyre going to have the calls right but I dont think anyone saw the whole, are we going to do it or not going to do it?" The issue is the stalling. Both John Gibbons and Joe Maddon have emerged from their dugouts to politely dispute a call thats another problem, the intensity of the manager-umpire argument is all but taken away while their video coaches review the footage. Theyre waiting for a signal from the dugout on whether to challenge. "I think thats just the way the game is going to go now," said Lind. "I guess the higher ups didnt think about that before the whole walk-out but youre going to do whatever you can to get outs or get people safe. Just like (Tuesday) with Gibby, if you still have a challenge left, you might as well use it." Happ throws a bullpen J.A. Happ, on the disabled list with a back injury, threw a bullpen session on Wednesday at Tropicana Field. "Hes feeling much better, definitely feeling good, played catch (Tuesday), threw a light side today and really feels no ill-effects from the issues with the back right now and hell progress accordingly," said pitching coach Pete Walker. "Well discuss now what the next step is, if its to get him in a game, when that will be, and progress him from there." Santos survives ninth Sergio Santos got the save in Tuesdays 4-2 win but not before the Rays put a scare into the Blue Jays. Tampa Bay brought the winning run to the plate with two out, in the person of Yunel Escobar, and had the tying run on second base after a double steal on the first pitch of the Escobar at-bat. Santos didnt bother with the base runners. Why? It all goes back to a conversation he had with Yankees legendary closer Mariano Rivera in 2011. "My whole thinking is Escobars the only guy that can hurt me," said Santos. "Whether there are runners on first and second or second and third, to me, in that situation is irrelevant because I know if I get my job done, which is getting the hitter out, it doesnt matter what base theyre on. "That was one of the things that Mo had stressed was not to be so preoccupied with whos on the bases and what theyre doing because the second you give some of your attention on the base runner and youre not fully with the hitter, thats when bad things can happen."
