    Raiders in Las Vegas vowed to zero in on two potential sites within the next
    month as they face a tight timeline to lock in a real estate deal, government
    approvals and the NFLs blessing.Representatives from Majestic Realty and the Las
    Vegas Sands casino company told an oversight committee Thursday that they want
    to get their plan in order by January, when NFL owners who must approve any team
    relocation by a three-quarters vote are scheduled to meet.I think the hardest
    part will be getting to the finish line on the land, said Sands President Rob
    Goldstein. Please be advised that were on it day in and day out.The Raiders are
    mulling a move to Las Vegas as Oakland hasnt made significant progress toward
    building them a new stadium. Los Angeles is another potential home for the
    Raiders if the San Diego Chargers pass on an opportunity to move there.
    Residents in San Diego will vote in November on the Chargers proposal to raise
    local hotel taxes for a new downtown stadium. The Chargers would likely look
    north if that fails.Raiders owner Mark Davis has said hed prefer to move the
    Raiders to Las Vegas -- a position reiterated by team President Marc Badain on
    Thursday.I know there are some people that question our commitment, Badain told
    Las Vegas-area business and government leaders. I hope they dont.Stadium
    proponents want to tap into $750 million in hotel tax revenue to pay for a venue
    they estimate will cost $1.7 billion to $2.1 billion, depending on land
    acquisition costs that havent been finalized. They narrowed a list of nine
    potential sites to four priority locations within the past two weeks.Those
    include the Bali Hai Golf Club and the UNLV campus near McCarran International
    Airport, the Wild Wild West casino and a site just to the west of Interstate 15
    where the highway runs parallel to the Las Vegas Strip. Developers want to place
    the stadium as close as possible to the Strip and secure at least 60 acres for
    their project, if not 100.Proponents must clear several government hurdles to
    build the proposed 65,000-seat stadium. They need approval from the Nevada
    Legislature to raise the hotel tax, and need the Federal Aviation Administration
    to ensure a tall stadium doesnt interfere with plane traffic at the airport,
    which is close to the Strip.Developers expect there will still be loose ends
    when they present their two favorite options to the oversight panel, the
    Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee.I just caution, by August 25,
    we wont know much from the FAA, said Craig Cavileer of Majestic Realty.Las Vegas
    had long been passed over by major professional sports leagues uncomfortable
    with the citys robust gambling industry. The National Hockey League became the
    first major league to move into Las Vegas, announcing last month that the city

    quarterback hopes to stay involved in football after officially calling it quits
    Tuesday. "Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce said in
    an interview from his Winnipeg eatery. TORONTO -- Josh Johnson didnt need to
    think too hard about how to describe his performance Monday. "I was pitiful,"
    said the Toronto Blue Jays right-hander. "Its the only way I could put it." It
    was difficult to disagree. The Blue Jays losing skid hit five games after they
    made five errors in their 14-5 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, who were led by
    catcher A.J. Elliss career-best five RBIs. Johnson (1-6) allowed seven hits and
    five runs in two-plus innings to drop his fourth consecutive decision. "I didnt
    even battle them," Johnson said. "Everything was in the middle of the plate. So
    theres nothing else I can do but take it. Yeah, that was a pretty poor
    performance." Ellis had four hits including a two-run homer as the Dodgers
    extended their winning streak to four games. "Hes been pretty good all year,
    really," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "For me, hes just consistent. He
    gives you good at-bats all the time. Its not always hits but youre always going
    to get a quality at-bat from A.J. Hes a guy who knows what hes doing up there."
    Skip Schumaker also drove in three runs with a home run for the Dodgers (51-47)
    while the Blue Jays (45-53) were outhit only 16-13. South Korean left-hander
    Hyun-Jin Ryu (8-3) allowed four runs in 5 1/3 innings to pick up his second win
    in his past three starts. Cheered on by a large contingent of fans in the stands
    along the right-field line, he gave up nine hits and two walks while striking
    out three. "That was definitely more than I expected here in Toronto," Ryu said
    of his cheering section. "I was very appreciative of that, it was a big help for
    me." Blue Jays manager John Gibbons was less appreciative and more selective in
    his words. "I probably cant say it right there," he said. "It wasnt a very good
    game. We got whipped all the way around. Josh, they took it to him. Even our
    bullpen tonight everybody gave a little up. We were sloppy defensively, it was
    just a crappy game, it really was." Andre Ethier doubled with one out in the
    second and A.J. Ellis hit his fifth homer of the season to give the Dodgers a
    2-0 lead. Johnson hit Juan Uribe with a pitch with two out and Mark Ellis
    singled. Carl Crawford singled in a run and Ellis took third on a throwing error
    by centre-fielder Colby Rasmus. Yasiel Puig singled in the fourth run. The
    Dodgers chased Johnson in the third. Ethier led off with a double and scored on
    a single by A.J. Ellis to make the score 5-0. A wild pitch and a catchers
    interference put runners at first and second with none out before left-hander
    Aaron Loup replaced Johnson. Johnson was at a loss to explain what has gone
    wrong for him this season as his earned-run average sits at 5.66. "I dont know,"
    he said. "The ball is in the middle of the plate and its pretty easy to see why
    they hiit it all over the place.dddddddddddd. One day itll be really good and
    then the next day it will be back to square one. Its been really inconsistent. I
    dont know. "Sometimes I feel like I make a pretty good pitch -- not today -- but
    in past games I make a pretty good pitch and all of a sudden you get base hits,
    bloopers fall and balls get through. But today I didnt make a good pitch."
    Gibbons said theres no plans to change the rotation, and that Johnson isnt going
    anywhere. "What Ive seen of Josh hes just scattering too much," Gibbons said.
    "Hes inconsistent in the zone making his pitches. He has a tendency to yank it
    to his glove side where he gets in trouble. You feel for the guy because hes
    competing but it just hasnt happened. Its not for a lack of effort but basically
    it comes down to locating the ball and hes had trouble doing that." The Blue
    Jays tried to get back into the game. They scored twice in the third started by
    Edwin Encarnacions two-out infield single. Adam Lind walked and Melky Cabrera
    singled in a run. Mark DeRosa had an RBI single to right when Schumaker could
    not hold his sinking drive to cut the lead to 5-2. The Dodgers scored once in
    the fourth. Adrian Gonzalez led off with a walk, took third on a single by
    Hanley Ramirez and came home when Ethier grounded into a double play. The
    Dodgers added four in the sixth against Dustin McGowan and Brett Cecil. After a
    walk and the second error of the game by Lind, A.J. Ellis picked up his fourth
    RBI of the game with a single. Uribes groundout to shortstop scored another run.
    Mark Ellis hit a sacrifice fly and Crawford had an RBI single to make the score
    10-2. The Blue Jays scored twice in the sixth. After two singles, a fielders
    choice grounder by Brett Lawrie of Langley, B.C., scored one. A wild pitch by
    reliever Jose Dominguez scored the other. The Dodgers scored four against
    reliever Steve Delabar in the seventh, three on Schumakers first homer of the
    season that followed a single by A.J. Ellis that gave him his fifth RBI. "RBIs
    are a product of guys getting on base in front of me and I had three guys who I
    felt like were on base every time I came up with Adrian, Hanley and Andre,"
    Ellis said. The Blue Jays scored once in the eighth on DeRosas double and Rasmus
    single. NOTES: Attendance at Rogers Centre was 34,515. ... Blue Jays left-hander
