assuming Rodgers
MESA, Ariz. Paul Krause Jersey . -- Jeff Samardzija isnt sure where hell be by the end of the season. Hes a good candidate to be traded by the Chicago Cubs given his one-year contract and hes determined to pitch well whether he stays put or gets dealt. "I know if I do my part and do what I expect of myself and what the team expects of me, then everything else is clear about what the future holds," Samardzija said. "All I can do is increase my value as much as possible, and I think in the end, its going to help the organization no matter what. Either it helps the organization by keeping me here and proving that Im that guy, or I increase my value and help them get prospects in return." For now a cloud hovers over him. As pitchers and catchers worked out for the first time on Friday, Samardzija stared at an uncertain future. Failed attempts at a long-term contract led to trade talks and, ultimately, a one-year agreement worth $5,345,000 to avoid arbitration on Saturday -- two days before his scheduled hearing. Samardzija wouldnt reveal how wide the gap is for a longer contract. "If there wasnt a gap we would have already signed," he said. "But both sides are justified. Its not like anyones asking for some outlandish concept. I understand where theyre coming from. They understand where Im coming from. Thats really all there is to say." Are they still discussing a multi-year deal? "Were not really going to talk about that," he said. "Were about this season. Were looking to get ready to compete and win some ballgames. We dont want any distractions whether its with that or the trade talks or this or that. To me, its a no-comment. Im out there getting ready to do my thing and, like I said before, put no doubt in anybodys minds about who I am or what I can be for this team or this organization." The 29-year-old Samardzija is coming off an unremarkable season that saw him go 8-13 with a 4.34 ERA, but he was one of only 10 pitchers with at least 200 innings and 200 strikeouts. Hes also not eligible for free agency until 2015, an added plus for potential suitors. And with the Cubs in a rebuilding mode, his days in Chicago could be winding down. "You address it because its going to be talked about," new manager Rick Renteria said. "What were going to try to do is make him understand that the only thing that is significantly important to him is what he does between the lines." Cris Carter Jersey . -- Rodney Stuckey scored 15 of his 21 points in the second half, and the Detroit Pistons beat the New York Knicks for the first time in eight meetings, 92-86 on Tuesday night. Pat Elflein Jersey . Others describe it as taking the parrot for a walk. . Fourteen players were suspended last summer by Major League Baseball as part of the Biogenesis drug scandal, ranging from All-Stars to also-rans.GREEN BAY, Wis. - The Packers locker room was noticeably quiet Monday, other than the ruckus caused by a couple dozen players scrambling in following a meeting, then scooting out the door for a few days off.Its just the way they wanted to start the post-season, a day after a rousing victory over the Detroit Lions secured a fourth straight NFC North title and first-round bye. Practice resumes Friday.This is a time, obviously, to step away from it, just enjoy what you accomplished ... Youll know we have the holiday here, coach Mike McCarthy said.So hydration testing on Friday morning will be the first thing we do, he added with a sly smile.Holiday cheer, indeed.Some players may be taking it a little easier, notably limping quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The two-touchdown performance in the 30-20 victory over Detroit is still drawing raves from teammates and coaches after Rodgers fought through a lingering left calf injury.McCarthy spoke to Rodgers on Monday morning. His quarterback had some tests but feels good, he said. A rehab plan is in place for this week, though its apparently not arduous enough that it would force Rodgers to stay in town during the time off.Weve got a good plan for him, McCarthy said. Frankly, Im not sure if he is staying.The Packers (12-4) earned the time off after piecing together perhaps two of their most complete games of the season to finish with two straight wins following a loss at Buffalo.Sure, Green Bays passing game might be shifted down a gear with Rodgers calf injury. It has limited his mobility the last two weeks.But an injured Rodgers might be better than most healthy quarterbacks. From the press box, offensive co-ordinator Tom Clements said he didnt even know that Rodgers was thinking about coming back into the Lions game in the middle of the third quarter after being carted into the locker rooom late in the second. Datone Jones Jersey. The defence got just as much of a lift from Rodgers return as the offence.If you cant find anything to play for, play for No. 12, play for the offence, defensive end Datone Jones said. He was pressuring Matthew Stafford when the quarterback was whistled for intentional grounding while in the end zone, which gave the Packers a safety late in the game.Theyve backed us up so much, there are times when weve got to back them up, Jones said.Actually, the defence had been playing well even before Rodgers got hurt. Coordinator Dom Capers crew has tightened up against the run since the middle of the season, in part because the Packers are using Clay Matthews and Sam Barrington more at inside linebacker to add athleticism.Receiver Calvin Johnson scored two touchdowns, though Capers proudly noted Monday that the Packers were able to limit Johnson and fellow playmaking receiver Golden Tate to a combined seven catches for 84 yards.Rookie Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and second-year player Micah Hyde are a big improvement at free safety over last season, while strong safety Morgan Burnett is having one of his best seasons, especially against the run. The steady Burnett is so respected that he was chosen a playoff captain, along with linebacker-end Julius Peppers.Just keep an even-keeled mindset, Burnett said when asked about the defensive performance the last three weeks. You cant dwell on the past. ... Just keep pushing forward and find ways to get better.The last three games, in particular, the Packers have held opponents to 21 points or less. If the defence can keep it up when Green Bay plays its first post-season game on Jan. 11, it will be more than enough cushion for the potent offence — assuming Rodgers doesnt have a major setback.__AP NFL website: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
