Central and 2 1/2 back in the wild card standin

ASHBURN, Va. http://www.airmax2017australia.com/nike-air-max-2015-australia/air-max-2015-white.html . - Brian Orakpo is frustrated. Not just by Washingtons 1-3 record, but by his lack of production.The outside linebacker, a three-time Pro Bowl pick, has just a half sack this season. It came against Jacksonville when Washington tied a franchise record with 10. The Redskins managed just one sack during their past two losses, the last one a 45-14 rout by the visiting New York Giants. Super Bowl champion Seattle comes to Washington on Monday.Its frustrating that I have only half a sack right now, but they will come, said Orakpo, who averaged 9.5 sacks during his first four full seasons. We want to get sacks. We want to create things that can change the flow of the game. . We just cant get frustrated, just keep doing what were doing. At times, I get frustrated. Everybody gets frustrated. Were on the sideline: What we can do? We feel like were not doing anything in this game. Coach Jay Gruden would like to see more from Orakpo.We expect more production, but hes had some plays where hes forced the issue and other guys have gotten sacks because of him, Gruden said. I dont really care about how many sacks he gets, but I do want him around the quarterback. . I think he can improve in that department and hell tell you the same thing.Orakpo, whom Washington franchised in March rather than award a long-term contract, is not signed beyond this season.Theres a lot of pressure . coming back thinking youre going to have your contract and then you have to do it again, Orakpo said. Its frustrating. Thats one thing Ive got to get out of my head because I cant add any more pressure finishing up these 12 games. . Youre basically playing for a contract again.Orakpo averaged 2.5 sacks during the first quarters of his four previous healthy seasons. He missed the rest of Washingtons 2012 NFC East championship season after tearing a pectoral muscle in Week 2. So he hasnt been a regular on a team that has finished better than 6-10.Its very disappointing where were at right now, 1-3, but well be fine. ... We get a second chance Monday night against the defending champs. You cant ask for a better story . to prove yourself once again, he said. Itd be a perfect scenario if we do what we have to do and get this W.Notes: Cornerback Tracy Porter, who re-injured his hamstring against the Giants, didnt practice again on Friday. Tight end Niles Paul (concussion) and inside linebacker Akeem Jordan (knee) took full practice after being limited on Thursday. Left tackle Trent Williams (knee) and left guard Shawn Lauavo (knee) remained limited. http://www.airmax2017australia.com/nike-roshe-one-australia/nike-roshe-one-black.html . - Henrik Samuelsson and Curtis Lazar each had two goals and two assists as the Edmonton Oil Kings secured top spot in the Eastern Conference by defeating the host Red Deer Rebels 7-4 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action. http://www.airmax2017australia.com/nike-roshe-one-australia/nike-roshe-one-mens.html . Ontario Superior Court Case Management Master Ronald Dash released the decision on Monday, saying John McCaw Jr. must testify in front of a jury by live video conference. Moores lawyer, Tim Danson, asked the court to compel McCaw - who is based in Seattle - to testify in the case back on February 27.MINNEAPOLIS -- After three consecutive years of 90-plus losses, Minnesota Twins general manager Terry Ryan is hoping a rare in-season, free-agent signing will keep his team in contention the rest of the summer. Minnesota signed first baseman/designated hitter Kendrys Morales to a one-year, prorated, $12 million contract on Sunday. The Cuban-born slugger, who hit .277 with 23 homers and 80 RBIs in 156 games with the Seattle Mariners last season, has been in Miami working out while waiting to sign. "Why not the Twins?" Ryan asked during a press conference announcing the signing. "I read there were probably a handful of clubs that were chasing Kendrys. We were ahead of many of those clubs in the standings." The Twins have lost 291 games the last three seasons, but are 29-31 this year, five games back in the AL Central and 2 1/2 back in the wild card standings. Morales, who turns 31 on June 20, had been unsigned because teams were hesitant to surrender a compensatory first-round pick to sign him. Since the Twins signed him after the MLB draft, they do not have to give up a coveted pick. The prorated portion of Morales contract will total slightly more than $7.4 million. "It just made sense," said Ryan, who is back in the GM chair after stepping away during spring training to battle skin cancer. For Morales, the deal gives him an opportunity to provide some power to an inconsistent Twins offence in desperate need of a full-time designated hitter. "It wasnt easy for a baseball player to watch baseball games when he knows he can pllay," Morales said through an interpreter. http://www.airmax2017australia.com/nike-air-max-2015-australia/air-max-2015-mens.html. "But you have to be mentally tough and be prepared so when this opportunity does come around, youre ready to do what you gotta do." In 620 career games, Morales has 102 home runs and 345 RBIs. He also missed 1 1/2 years after breaking his leg celebrating a game-ending home run on May 29, 2010, when he was with the Los Angeles Angels. Since Morales is out of options and not injured, the Twins cant send him to the minors to shake off the rust from missing the seasons first 60 games. Hell work out with the team and take the field when hes ready. "Its a day to day thing, Ill be working out and talking to (manager Ron Gardenhire) and the coaching staff," Morales said. "When Im ready, Ill be in there. We just want to do it the right way." Morales greeted his new teammates in the clubhouse before Sundays game against the Houston Astros and spent some time with Tony Oliva, Minnesotas most famous Cuban-born player. Since the Twins arent known for making splashy moves, especially during the season, players viewed the signing as a signal from management that theyre serious about contending. "Its a good signing. A lot of us are real excited right now," Joe Mauer said. "It tells you how close this division is and us adding is definitely a great thing." To make room on the 25-man roster, Minnesota released Jason Kubel, who appeared in 798 games over parts of eight seasons with the Twins. He was hitting .224 this year, but just .158 since April.
