SAN DIEGO -- In sports, wreaking havoc is a term more reserved for outside linebackers who crush running backs and sack quarterbacks.But Padres manager Andy Green recently said wreaking havoc is exactly what 185-pound center fielder Travis Jankowski is doing these days.Travis is dynamic right now, Green continued in his assessment of the very fast, 25-year-old Jankowski after his three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers.Jankowski was 6-for-11 against the Brewers with four infield hits and a double. He also drew three walks. And Jankowski was just getting started when he reached base. He stole five bases in the three games, including a steal of home, and made two exception catches in center.Since getting a chance to start every day with the arm fracture that sidelined Jon Jay on June 28 and the July 24 trade that dispatched Melvin Upton Jr. to Toronto, Jankowski has become a force as the Padres lead-off hitter.Padres fans, who have seen many of the clubs leading players move on, have become enamored with the 6-foot-2 speedster with the flowing golden locks and perpetually dirty uniform.Hes making the most of his chance to play, Green said. Hes jump-started us with the excitement he brings to the top of the order. Hell do anything he can to get on base. And once on base, hes an instant threat to be on second or third.Jankowski will again be at the top of order Friday night as the Padres face Phillies right-hander Jeremy Hellickson of the Philadelphia Phillies in the opener of a three-game series at Petco Park.Yes, Hellickson is still with the Phillies.For weeks before the trading deadline, rumors swirled that the 29-year-old right-hander would be traded -- even though a hand injury in the days leading up to the deadline clouded the issue.But the Phillies decided to hold onto Hellickson, who is 8-7 with a 3.70 ERA in 22 starts entering Friday nights matchup with Padres left-hander Christian Friedrich (4-6, 4.72 ERA).Phillies general manager Matt Klentak decided having a veteran on a young staff was better than acquiring another prospect.Theres a huge value in having a veteran starter who can give us six and seven innings every start on a staff of young pitchers, said Klentak of Hellicksons value as the trading deadline passed Monday.Im glad to still be with the Phillies, Hellickson said. I want to stay a part of this.Friedrich, meanwhile, is coming off his best start since the All-Star break. He held the Cincinnati Reds to one run on five hits and a walk over six innings Saturday night at Petco Park. In his previous seven starts, Friedrich was 1-5 with a 7.86 ERA while pitching into the sixth inning only twice.The secret for me is to put the ball where I need to put it, Friedrich said after Saturdays outing against the Reds.I like Friedrich, Green said. Hes an extremely competitive person. He knows what he has to do to get people out. And when he struggles, he doesnt panic. He remains focused.

"It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium. http://www.cheapseahawksjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-michael-dickson-jersey . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. Wholesale Seahawks Jerseys . The Canadian squad, skipped by Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg, got on the board first with two in the second end, and followed that with two more apiece in the fourth and sixth ends. Authentic Jamarco Jones Jersey . Oyama had six birdies and two bogeys at Kintetsu Kashikojima in the event also sanctioned by the Japan LPGA Tour. "I have been having this neck ache thats been affecting my golf recently," Oyama said.Matt Brocklebank runs the rule over the Cheltenham Gold Cup, with Don Cossack fancied to justify favouritism. Don Cossack heads the betting for the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup and has been given the vote of confidence from jockey Bryan Cooper, who prefers the Gordon Elliott-trained nine-year-old over Willie Mullins Don Poli. Racing legend Sir Anthony McCoy tells Sky Sports just what it takes to win the Gold Cup at Cheltenham Will it be the right choice by the jockey, or can Cue Card complete an illustrious treble and bring up the £1million bonus? Heres our A-Z guide to the field for the 3m2f70y Grade 1 contest. CARLINGFORD LOUGH (Jockey: Barry Geraghty)Recent form: 19-461 Carlingford Lough (left) beat Road to Riches to the Irish Gold Cup Dual winner of the Irish Gold Cup at Leopardstown, where he slammed Road To Riches by 12 lengths, but has come up short on two previous visits to the Cheltenham, including when a well-held ninth to Coneygree in this race. This years renewal looks a shade stronger if anything and a place probably his best hope.Rating: 6/10CUE CARD (Paddy Brennan)Recent form: 2-4111 Remarkable campaigner who romped to victory in the Champion Bumper here as a four-year-old and hes had a distinguished hurdling and chasing career since then. Right back to his very best this season and hes bidding to complete a £1m bonus treble having won the Betfair Chase and King George on his last two starts. Won the Ryanair Chase in 2013 on his last Festival visit and surely one of the most popular winners of the week should he prevail.Rating: 9/10DJAKADAM (Ruby Walsh)Recent form: 12-21F Djakadams jockey Ruby Walsh and trainer Willie Mullins in the parade ring after winning in the John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase Possibly the forgotten horse of the race having fallen when odds-on favourite here in January but certainly worth remembering it was he who chased home Coneygree in the big one 12 months ago. Looked as good, if not better, than ever when thrashing Valseur Lido in the John Durkan on his seasonal debut and at the age of seven theres every reason to believe he could have much more to offer.Rating: 7/10DON COSSACK (Bryan Cooper)Recent form: 111F1 Ended last season as the highest-rated chaser in training and this years form gives us no reason to doubt his talent. One blip was a late fall when appearing to be mounting a strong challenge in the King George at Kempton and although not particularly impressive in his prep at Thurles in January, that came over an inadequate trip and on ground softer than he cares for. Some have questioned his Cheltenham record but had excuses when he was third in last years Ryanair and hes the one they all have to beat with Cooper opting to ride him over Don Poli.Rating: 10/10DON POLI (Davy Russell)Recent form: 11-511 Bryan Cooper and Willie Mullins (right) with Don Poli Hugely talented seven-year-old who doesnt do anything flashy but gets the job done more often than not, winning five of his six chase starts to date.dddddddddddd Most of his form is on soft going but did win the RSA Chase here on good 12 months ago and hes bound to be staying on strongly up the hill. But will he be quick enough to maintain his place when the tempo increases?Rating: 8/10IRISH CAVALIER (Paul Townend)Recent form: 42155P Irish Cavalier ridden by Paul Townend (left) jumps the last ahead of Annacotty ridden by Ian Popham (right) Won the novices handicap chase at the meeting last year and added to his tally at Newton Abbot in October. Found life tough since, though, and pulled up when last seen on heavy ground here in January. Loads to prove in Grade One company and yet to fully convince over a staying trip so plenty of reasons to look elsewhere.Rating: 2/10OFAOLAINS BOY (Noel Fehily)Recent form: 5/P1P8 Noel Fehily riding OFaolains Boy to win The David Martin Graduation Steeple Chase at Newbury Had a long time off after enjoying a good 2013/14 campaign, when he beat Smad Place narrowly to claim RSA Chase glory at the Festival. Very in-and-out since returning and while his wide-margin win at Newbury in December suggested he was back on an upward trajectory, two flops since, including over hurdles last time, temper enthusiasm. Hard to see him being good enough to contest the finish.Rating: 2/10ON HIS OWN (Patrick Mullins)Recent form: 97U482 Davy Russell on Lord Windermere (R) won from David Casey on On His Own (centre) in the 2014 Gold Cup Grand old servant to the Mullins yard and his finest hour came here when beaten a short-head by Lord Windermere in the 2014 renewal of the Gold Cup. Hes being aimed at the Grand National and looked on good terms with himself when second behind Boston Bob at Fairyhouse recently but hell need others in this line-up to seriously disappoint if hes to lift the top prize here.Rating: 3/10ROAD TO RICHES (TBC)Recent form: 13-312 BJ Cooper on Road To Riches (left), eventual winner Ruby Walsh on Vautour and Richard Johnson on Village Vic clear a jump in the Ryanair Chase Third in the Gold cup last season and has kept up a very strong level of form this term but he ran in the Ryanair Chase on Thursday and doesnt look likely to take part.Rating: 5/10SMAD PLACE (Wayne Hutchinson)Recent form: 4-1141 Popular grey who went close at the Festival in the World Hurdle a couple of times before pushing OFaolains Boy close in the 2014 RSA Chase. Wasnt anything like his best throughout most of the last campaign but returned to action with a Kempton win in November and followed up in the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury. Only fourth when different tactics were adopted in the King George at Kempton but back to peak form with a thrilling front-running win over this course and distance in January. Looks a strong pace angle here but drying ground and stronger opposition the slight nagging doubts over his claims.Rating: 7/10VERDICT: Few would rule out Cue Card winning the £1million bonus after the season hes had already and the reception Sprinter Sacre received on Wednesday could even be matched should Colin Tizzards popular chaser do the business in Fridays feature. But Don Cossack looked like he could have taken his measure in the King George before falling two fences from home and the drying ground has come good for Gordon Elliotts highly-regarded charge. Hes the pick of Bryan Cooper and is strongly fancied to open his Cheltenham Festival account at the third time of asking. Also See: Bet now at Cheltenham!
