DUNEDIN, Florida – General manager Alex Anthopulos was expected to return on Tuesday from a business trip to the Dominican Republic. While he was away, it was the division-rival Baltimore Orioles conducting a little business of their own, scooping up Ubaldo Jimenez on Monday evening to a reported four-year, $50-million contract. Jimenezs signing leaves only one remaining marquee starting pitcher on the market. That would be Ervin Santana, with whom the Jays have been linked for what feels like an eternity. Santana is coming off a strong year for the Royals, in which he authored a 3.24 ERA and a 1.142 WHIP over 211 innings. Hes exceeded the 200-inning plateau in four of the last six seasons, which reflects positively on his durability but would give a club pause when considering how much, and how long, to invest in a 31-year-old. "Some things could still change but were going forward with what we have unless something happens," said manager John Gibbons. "We like this group. Thats not my department. You know, Alex is working hard. Hes been doing it all winter, half of last season, looking at some different options." Its anyones guess who will fill out the back end of the Jays rotation. Esmil Rogers (4-7, 4.89, 1.434 WHIP in 106 2/3 innings as a starter last season) and Todd Redmond (4-2, 4.41, 1.240 WHIP in 69 1/3 innings as a starter last season) appear to have the inside track, if only because both are out of options. Whoever doesnt win the starting job, if he isnt sent to the bullpen, could be lost on waivers if an attempt is made to send him to the minors. There appears to be a preference for starting Drew Hutchison and Kyle Drabek, both of whom had Tommy John elbow surgery during the 2012 season but who have returned to full health, at Triple-A Buffalo. Marcus Stroman, a top prospect, doesnt expect to crack the opening day roster but hopes to prove in spring training he can compete with big league talent. Lefthander Sean Nolin, shelled in his one-off debut against the Orioles last May, could be a factor. Chad Jenkins, who is effective more often than not when called upon, should be afforded consideration. Ricky Romero would have to show significant signs of improvement this spring to have a chance at cracking the roster. Hutchison and Drabek come from similar backgrounds in that theyve both had regular turns in the rotation, only to go down with injury. Now theyre trying to work their way back to Toronto – this time for good – knowing the odds, at least initially, are stacked against them. Drabek pays his predicament no mind. "You just kind of have to go into it thinking its your job," said Drabek. "Ive won a job before and, you know, thats kind of how I prepare for it. Thats how my Dad wanted me to. Just go in there, do every thing you can right and really not think about it." "You obviously have to earn it," said Hutchison. "You got there once so you obviously know youre capable of it and you believe in yourself and you know what you can do. Its really about just coming out here and competing and getting the job done." If Santana eludes them or the term and money prove to be too much of a gamble for Anthopoulos, the Jays will need one of their young pitchers to emerge a pleasant surprise. Its not the situation a team built to win now wants but after a quiet offseason, its the scenario which seems most favourable at the moment. Clearance Shoes . PAUL, Minn. Black Friday Shoes .

Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge won the game for the away side in the first half, with Josh King scoring a consolation for the Cherries in first-half stoppage time.[Its] disappointment from our perspective overall on the performance levels, Howe told Sky Sports. Especially first half I think we were very good today, credit to Liverpool but we didnt cause them enough problems and we didnt work their back line enough.Second half was a lot better, last half an hour we came strong and if we got the goal earlier it could have been different.We felt we ended the game very strongly, I liked the look of our side at the end of the half, but too little too late from our perspective.Howe also reserved praise for goalscorer King, but felt his goal came too late for his side. Joshua King of Bournemouth celebrates after scoring his teams consolation goal Josh King played very well today, he scored a great goal, said Howe.dddddddddddd But overall the feeling is we lost it in the first half.There was nothing in the game until their first goal, which came out of the blue really. But overall I just dont think we got enough ball in their half, we didnt really threaten and for the home team that wasnt enough.Bournemouth may be virtually assured of safety on 41 points, but Howe insists his side will be motivated to fight for as many points as they can until the end of the season.The motivation has to be very strong, said Howe. We take that momentum from this season into next, so its very important that we try and win as many games as we can.
