CHICAGO -- The San Francisco Giants put Eduardo Nunez on their roster for the NL Division Series against the Chicago Cubs after the third baseman had been sidelined with a strained right hamstring. George Brett Jersey .Nunez, an AL All-Star this season with Minnesota, hasnt played since Sept. 25. Conor Gillaspie replaced him for the wild-card game Wednesday night and hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning of San Franciscos 3-0 win against the New York Mets.Right-hander Jason Hammel was left off the Cubs roster after he had a career-best 15 wins this year. Hammel didnt make the postseason rotation and was hampered by right elbow tightness at the end of the year.The Cubs went with 11 pitchers and 14 position players. Rookie outfielder Albert Almora Jr. made the cut while veteran Matt Szczur was left off the list despite a team-high 12 pinch hits.Almora, a first-round pick in the 2012 draft, made his major league debut in June and batted .277 in 47 games with the Cubs.When youre going to add a guy thats that inexperienced, that young, you really want to validate the character component of the personality, Chicago manager Joe Maddon said before Game 1 on Friday night. We feel really strongly about him. So I have no problem with him playing in any of these games.The Giants had 12 pitchers and 13 position players. Rookie left-hander Ty Blach, who went 1-0 with a 1.06 ERA in four games late in the season, was active for the NLDS after he was left off the wild-card roster. Wade Davis Royals Jersey . -- The goal posts lying flat on the field, Arizonas fans lingered on the field, congregating around the locker room entrance nearly 30 minutes after rushing out of the stands. Frank White Royals Jersey .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. http://www.baseballroyalsofficial.com/kendrys-morales-jersey-c-13/ . According the Toronto Star, a knee injury will keep Sundin out of the lineup, which includes former teammates Gary Roberts, Darcy Tucker, Tie Domi and Curtis Joseph. RIO DE JANEIRO -- The confident talk around the British team before these Olympics was that they would return home with their best ever away-Games medal haul. It was even suggested claiming 48 podium places or more would unite a divided nation.But Adam Peatys spectacular performances in the pool apart, the first few days havent quite lived up to expectations.By teatime in Brazil on Tuesday, after 50 events, only four British entrants had finished in the top three in their disciplines and Team GB were level with Kazakhstan and Thailand in the medal count.Early hopes for Chris Froome and Lizzie Armitstead faded and there have been a series of sorry slips, with David Florence in the C1 canoe slalom final the latest among them on Tuesday.He had won silver in the event in Beijing and finished second in the pairs version of it, the C2, in London. In Rio, pretty much everything that could have gone wrong in the final did as he finished last in a field of 10, nearly 15 seconds behind French winner Denis Chanut Gargaud.Florence claimed the mistakes he made were catastrophic. Four years of preparations and unfortunately that makes it all seem like a little bit of a waste of time, he said.It certainly wasnt the best way to celebrate his 34th birthday, which was on Monday, but at least the world champion in both C1 and C2 disciplines was in good company within Team GB.Geraint Thomas, who crashed in the mens cycling road race, could probably sympathise, and so could Louis Smith, who fell off the pommel horse as Britains men failed to meet expectations in the team gymnastics event.William Fox-Pitt, the main man in the British equestrian squad, also disappointed, taking the blame as the nation missed out on a team eventing medal for the first time since 1996.There is plenty of time for a team full of talented athletes to get things back on track, of course, and the successes of Olympic 100 metre breaststroke champion Peaty and Tom Daley, who took bronze with Dan Goodfellow in the 10m platform synchronised diving on Monday, have been rightly celebrated.Some of those who havent yet tasted success still have chances to come, too, and Florence will have an opportunity to mmake amends in the C2 event, which starts on Thursday. Ian Kennedy Jersey. I can pick myself up, it will be easy -- I have done it loads of times, said Florence, whose wife and parents were among a large and loud group of supporters here. I am more used to disappointment than success.London was very disappointing [when he failed to make the C1 final], today was very disappointing. Hopefully, in a couple of days it wont be as disappointing.The margins are tiny, it comes down to one run. I have no problems for the C2 and will be able to give it my all.Florences attempt to negotiate gates 8, 9 and 10 were where it went wrong for him and he said it was unrecoverable from there.He didnt look for excuses, but if he had a lack of preparation couldnt have been one. The journey to Rio for the Games was the canoeists sixth trip to Brazil, and the British spent a great deal of time and money ensuring their athletes were familiar with the Whitewater Stadium course in Deodoro.Before the Games, Team GB coaches boasted about the comprehensive nature of their approach compared to other nations, and Florence must hope that all that work pays off for him when he competes with partner Richard Hounslow.Florence obviously felt keenly disappointed about his C1 performance but he was reasonably philosophical. The experience of competing in Canoe slalom probably makes all its athletes a little bit like that, given it is as much about not making mistakes as it is about going fast.Hes a pretty logical guy, too, if his mathematical physics degree and previous application to become an astronaut are anything to go by.But what about the people around him: Hounslow and his family and friends? They [my supporters] will be disappointed. Hopefully they have had a good time anyway. They will be here in a couple of days to cheer for the C2 and for the other guys in Team GB.Its up to me really [to pick myself up]. Richard will be there and ready to paddle. I hope he knows I will be ready to give it my all. Hopefully well put in a good run, get to the final, and who knows.
