A look at whats happening all around the majors Sunday:---BELEAGUERED BULLPENThe Mets hope to get some innings out of rookie Robert Gsellman (2-2, 3.13) as they wrap a four-game series against the Phillies. New York used 16 pitchers during the first two games of the series, then had to pull starter Sean Gilmartin after just two outs and five runs Saturday. Gsellman will be making his sixth career start and has never logged more than six innings, though he has done a commendable job slotting into the depleted New York rotation.LESTER IN THE LIMELIGHTNL Cy Young Award candidate Jon Lester (18-4, 2.36) can impress voters with a prime-time start against the rival Cardinals. The Cubs left-hander has never finished higher than fourth in Cy Young balloting and could be in line for his highest career finish thanks to a 1.15 ERA since Aug. 1. Chicago is 11-1 in Lesters starts since the All-Star break.NO-BAT BOMBERSThe Yankees dormant offense seeks a spark against Toronto after suffering through three consecutive shutouts. New York hasnt scored since Donovan Solanos two-run homer in the ninth inning of Wednesdays win at Tampa Bay, going 0 for 16 with runners in scoring position while stranding 20 over the last three games. Manager Joe Girardi insists effort isnt an issue for the youthful Yanks, who seek a turnaround against Blue Jays right-hander Marco Estrada (9-9, 3.62).BIG IN THE BAY AREARangers right-hander Colby Lewis (6-3, 3.40 ERA) seeks his first win in three starts since coming off a two-month stint on the disabled list with a back strain. Lewis, projected the No. 3 playoff starter, has won four straight starts at the Oakland Coliseum since June 2014 and is 7-2 with a 2.65 ERA in 12 outings in Oakland since returning to the U.S. from Japan in 2010.BOUNCING BACKA day after a ninth-inning collapse cost Detroit ground in the AL wild-card race, Matt Boyd (6-4, 4.16) tries to give the Tigers a boost against Kansas City. Boyd held Minnesota to a run and three hits over eight innings in his last outing and has been a big key to the Tigers late-season push for a postseason spot. The Royals send out Edinson Volquez (10-11, 5.25). Wholesale Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys .C. United of Major League Soccer. United chose the defender in the second round of the 2013 MLS re-entry draft. Authentic Avonte Maddox Jersey .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. Authentic Dallas Goedert Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Authentic Matt Pryor Jersey . Goals from Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Thomas Mueller extended Bayerns unbeaten run to a record 37 matches. "This record is incredible," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said. Former Mumbai Ranji Trophy player Vasu Paranjpe may have not had the opportunity of playing for his country but he has followed cricket more intimately than most - from 1948-49 - when he watched his first Test at the Brabourne Stadium.Apart from being an early mentor to Sunil Gavaskar (it was Paranjpe who nicknamed him Sunny), Paranjpe has been highly instrumental in the growth of several Mumbai players.He advised players to be practical and never to be afraid. Before Sandeep Patil left for his maiden tour of Australia, he told him, You watch Dennis Lillee for the first half an hour and for the next five and a half hours, hell be watching you.As captain of Dadar Union Sporting Club where he led players like Gavaskar, Dilip Vengsarkar and Sanjay Manjrekar, Paranjpe was an adventurous captain who loved the Australian way of playing cricket.He is a devotee of Sir Don Bradman but adored Sir Frank Worrell too. If God gave me a chance to play cricket again, I would play like Worrell. He always kept the game alive while Bradman murdered bowlers. Worrell played cricket the way it should be played, he says.Right from his early visits to the Brabourne Stadium, Paranjpe has never been coy to express an opinion even in the presence of more illustrious cricketers. Paranjpe happened to be at the Wankhede Stadium press box when the scorer announced double centurion Sunil Gavaskars involvement in a huge partnership with a batsman in the 1978-79 Test against the West Indies, Paranjpe is believed to have exclaimed, this is not a partnership, but a sole proprietorship.Barring the 1969-70 India vs. Australia Test, in which he missed the last couple of days, till the mid-1980s, Paranjpe did not miss a ball. He was never a minute later than 30 minutes before the start and preferred to watch over second slip. You know exactly whats happening when you watch over second slip, he says.When television coverage got better in India, he preferred to watch on television from his Matunga living room. From a coachs point of view, replays are important. I dont miss going to the cricket. Back then, people came to matches to appreciate cricket and not to heckle.His best memories from the stands of the Brabourne Stadium is the buzz Lala Amarnaths 39 created in 1948-49, an innings which set up Indias victory bid against the West Indies and Polly Umrigar hitting a six at the pavilion end to reach his century in 1952. Himself being a fine fielder, Paranjpe reckons Graham Dowlings 1969-70 New Zealand team was the finest fielding team to tour India. Their fielding and catching was a delight to watch. Fielding is the only aspect that can bring crowds to see you. In batting and bowling there is a break. In fielding you are watched every ball. The best fielder in my time was Polly Umrigar. He was a giant in any position but if you are referring to only short leg, it has to be Eknath Solkar, he says.Here he reminisces about a few of his fondest memories:On the first match he watched:The first Test match that I watched was the fifth Test between India vs West Indies at the Brabourne Stadium in February 1949. One cricketer stood out for me in that Test which India nearly won - Lala Amarnath. The India captain scored a scintillating 39 aided with six fours. He created a buzz around the ground as India were chasing 361 for victory. We fell six runs short. Amarnath was bowled by Denis Atkinson and only the leg stump bail fell. Everyone was talking about that innings and I was only listening to them. Amarnath really impressed me and I remember him keeping wickets because P Sen got injured and Lala kept brilliantly.On his favourite team:The Australians gave me the most pleasure. I watched them first in the 1956-57 Brabourne Test where Peter?Burke?and Neil Harvey got hundreds. GS Ramchand got a terrific hundred against an attack of Ray Lindwall, Pat Crawford, Alan Davidson and Richie Benaud. Crawford wreaked havoc. I have never seen anyone bowl so fast. He sent back Pankaj Roy, Umrigar and JM Ghorpade in quick succession and it was not only pace. He was very accurate too. Harvey was a treat to watch, always stepping out and driving. I remember the first ball he faced off Subhash Gupte which was square driven. What a beautiful shot it was! Gupte bowled a lot to Harvey.On Hanif Mohammad:Hanif Mohammads 160 in 1960 was the one of the best hundreds I have watched in my life. He was unstoppable. Hanifs defence could be heard even in the stands.dddddddddddd It was a perfect hundred. I remember him being run out from a throw by Vijay Manjrekar from third man for 160. Hanif showed people how to bat!On the most thrilling game he watched:The India vs Australia 1964-65 Test was the most thrilling game I watched. Chandu Borde and KS Inderjitsinhji saw India through but I also remember Bob Simpson dropping a few catches and Vijay Manjrekar, who scored a half century in the first innings and hooked Alan Connolly into the east end. I havent seen a hook as ferocious as Manjrekars. Manjrekar was my hero. He was everything to me as a batsman. But he didnt play too many good innings at CCI and that disappointed me. I expected India to win because Tiger was leading us and his leadership always made a difference. We never got bogged down despite the strength of the opposition.On the one time he missed a Test:I watched only a bit of the India vs Australia Test of 1969 at the Brabourne Stadium. MAK Pataudi and Ashok Mankad put on 146 runs but Ashok was miserable against Graham McKenzie, a truly great fast bowler. He claimed five wickets and bowled an inspired spell with the old ball. Bowling with the old ball at the CCI was nothing short of punishment. I was not there when the riot took place. It was rare for me to leave before the end of play.On the best fielding side he watched:Graham Dowlings New Zealand team was the best fielding side I saw on Indian soil. Their fielding and catching was a delight to watch. Fielding is the only aspect that can bring crowds to see you. In batting and bowling, there is a break but you are seen every delivery while fielding. The best fielder according to me was Polly Umrigar - a giant in any position, but if you are speaking only about short leg, it has to be Ekki (Eknath Solkar).On the invincible West Indies team:The match at Wankhede in 1974-75 was totally dominated by Clive Lloyd 242. No one remembers that Roy Fredericks too played a good, attacking innings of 104 and Alvin Kallicharran was dismissed two short of a hundred. Lloyd just murdered the bowling. Bedi missed a caught and bowled chance. He got his hands to it else it would have gone through his neck. For me though, Sunny played the best for India. His 86 on the third day was a fine exhibition of strokeplay.He thrilled me with that knock and I have always said he should bat like that. In our little arguments, I used to say, if you do it once, you can do it again. His reply invariably was, Its not so easy, Vasu and I was forced to say, I have nothing to say on that. Ekki scored the only Test of his career in this Test and I remember the torture he endured from going from 90 to 100. Vishys 95 was superb and he continued his form in the series. The best knock anybody has played for any team was his 97 at Madras in the same series.I dont think anyone has played a more timely knock than him and Indias victory in that Test was caused by Pataudis positive captaincy. Only a captain like Pataudi could win it. I loved his captaincy. He was always positive and never worried about being defeated and that to me, is the only way to play this game.The next time West Indies came to India was in 1978-79. I assisted Bapu Nadkarni in preparing the Wankhede Stadium wicket for the opening Test. The wicket was slightly soft and when Alvin Kallicharran won the toss and put India in, my heart was in my mouth. I wondered how the pitch would play but Sunny played superbly, especially against Sylvester Clarke, and got a double hundred. It was a very fine innings against a bowler who had been written about a lot. After Sunnys 205, the next best score was 52 by Chetan Chauhan and Vishy. Kallicharran scored 187 and perished to a shocking leg before decision off Kapil Dev. It was a horrible decision because the ball hit Kalli very high.On the Jubilee Test:The 1980 Golden Jubilee Test was extraordinary. The ball moved from Day One to Day Four when England won by 10 wickets. Ian Botham bowled splendidly for his 13 wickets - the more wickets you get, the better you bowl and he proved that during this Test. Of course, the Jubilee Test will be remembered for Vishy recalling Bob Taylor. I didnt agree with his decision. It was a great gesture but I wonder if it was worth it. I wouldnt have done that at a crucial juncture in the game.?
