Juventus says Pirlo underwent

  • 17 May
    导出博客文章England fly-half Owen Farrell has said the World Cup failure left him with a
    point to prove and has driven the team to its current 100 percent record under
    Eddie Jones.Farrell said that while the memory of being eliminated from their
    home tournament at the group stages remains, it was used in a positive way to
    drive the team forward.I can only talk from my experience but I went into that
    [next] season feeling I had something to prove, he told The Times. I could not
    wait to get going and rip into it. It was not about putting it behind me because
    its still happened, it doesnt go away, but there was so much bad press -- and
    everybody and his dog had an opinion -- that you just wanted to show what youre
    about.I dont dwell on it, but you can use it to go forward. Dont sit on it and
    let it be something that drags you down, but use it the right way and let it
    take you forward. A lot of the lads did that.Another help has been Jonny
    Wilkinson, Englands 2003 World Cup winning fly-half, who Jones has brought in as
    part of his back-room team. It seemed to have worked as Farrell converted 23 of
    26 kicks in their summer whitewash of Australia, but the Saracens star admits,
    its not all about kicking.A lot of it is not to do with kicking and skills but
    about the way you think and the way you are, added Farrell says. (His) knowledge
    is such that he explains things to you in different ways and takes you to a new
    place.Even just sitting there and talking to him you feel you are getting better
    and gaining more control of what you do. Im passionate about improvement.

    . Pirlo limped out of Sundays 1-0 win over Udinese after just 13
    minutes. Juventus says Pirlo underwent tests on Monday which revealed he has "a
    second-degree lesion to the collateral medial ligament in his right knee. Of the
    30 teams in the major leagues, 18 are either in playoff position or within 3 1/2
    games of a spot.Thats enough to give a lot of fans hope down the stretch -- but
    theres a catch.The more contenders there are in a postseason race, the harder it
    is for any one team to emerge. Take a look at the American Leagues second wild
    card, for example: Right now, Baltimore leads that race and Detroit is only two
    games back, but according to the playoff probabilities at Fangraphs.com , the
    Orioles have only a 43 percent chance to reach the postseason, and the Tigers
    are at 36 percent.Thats partly because there are so many other teams (the
    Astros, Mariners, Royals and even the Yankees) still within striking distance.
    Aside from the clear division leaders like the Cubs, Nationals and Rangers,
    nobody should feel all that great about their situation right now.Its easy for
    teams to stay optimistic if they arent that far from a playoff spot, but the
    games-back column can be a bit of an illusion. The New York Mets are only 2 1/2
    games behind St. Louis for the second wild card in the National League -- hardly
    a daunting deficit with over a month to play. But the Marlins and Pirates are in
    between, meaning New York also has to worry about outperforming those other
    teams over these next few weeks.Fangraphs gives the Mets a 19-percent chance to
    make it. That 2 1/2-game margin is certainly surmountable, but a lot will have
    to go right for New York to return to the postseason.Here are a few other
    developments from around baseball:ON A TEARYankees rookie Gary Sanchez is
    hitting .405 with 11 homers in 222 games this season.dddddddddddd. Sanchez
    entered Sundays game already leading his teams position players in wins above
    replacement (WAR) on the year, according to Baseball-Reference.com.Over half (19
    of 34) of Sanchezs hits have gone for extra bases this season. After the Yankees
    were sellers at the non-waiver trade deadline, Sanchez is just what they needed
    to hold New Yorks attention for at least a little while longer.ON A TEAR, PART
    IIBostons Dustin Pedroia had hits in 11 straight at-bats, coming within one of
    the major league record. He grounded into a double play in his final at-bat
    Saturday night.It takes a lot for a full-time player to move the needle on his
    batting average at this stage in the season, but Pedroias went up from .306 to
    .320 over his past three games. Hes hitting .398 in August, albeit with no
    homers.FANTASY FOCUSWith September call-ups looming, keep an eye on top prospect
    Yoan Moncada of Boston. If he gets a chance to play with the Red Sox, his speed
    could be an immediate fantasy asset.LINE OF THE WEEKMatt Moore of San Francisco
    came within one out of a no-hitter before giving up a single to Corey Seager of
    the Dodgers in the ninth inning Thursday night. He was pulled immediately after
    that hit, but his 133-pitch effort was still a highlight this past
    week.Honorable mention goes to Torontos Josh Donaldson, whose three-homer game
    Sunday had fans throwing hats onto the field.---Follow Noah Trister at
