TORONTO - The Toronto Blue Jays acquired right-hander Liam Hendriks from the Kansas City Royals on Thursday in exchange for catcher Santiago Nessy.Hendriks, 25, began the regular season in the Blue Jays organization before being dealt to the Royals on July 28. Catcher Erik Kratz was also moved to Kansas City in the deal in exchange for infielder Danny Valencia.Hendriks had a 1-2 record and 5.23 earned-run average in nine games for Toronto and Kansas City this past season. He was 8-1 with a 2.33 ERA in 18 games at triple-A Buffalo.Nessy, 21, was signed by the Blue Jays in 2009 and played at the Class-A minor-league level this year. Grant Hill Jersey . CEO Steve Koonin on Tuesday told the Hawks flagship radio station that he made the decision to discipline Ferry but allowed him to keep his job managing the team. He did not say what the punishment was, but noted that he relied on a law firms three-month investigation of Ferry and him describing Deng as someone who has a little African in him. Shaquille ONeal Jersey . On Thursday, they signed former Browns linebacker DQwell Jackson. Terms of the deal were not immediately available. ... ns-jersey/. The move is retroactive to Aug. 1. Hosmer was originally hit on the hand in the first inning of a July 20 loss to Boston. He has played most of the time since, but missed a few contests due to the injury, then departed Thursdays win over the Twins and had tests that revealed the fracture. Kevin Johnson Jersey . Saskatchewans Darian Durant is expected to miss the rest of the Roughriders season with a torn tendon in his right elbow. The 32-year-old, who will undergo surgery in the next couple days to repair the injury, was added to the teams six-game injury list Tuesday. Ryan Anderson Jersey . 22. Wade averaged 26.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.0 steals while leading the Heat to a 3-0 record. The 31-year-old shot 60 percent from the field and 50 percent from 3-point range en route to his 17th weekly honor.Were a little over two months until the start of 109th World Series, so its as good a time as any to think about some of the match-ups wed like to see. For starters, how about the Red Sox and Dodgers? This would be the perfect match-up in the wake of last years massive nine-player deal that brought L.A. the likes of Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford and saved the retooling Red Sox $250 million in salaries. The Dodgers, after a terrible start, now lead the NL West and are the hottest team in baseball. And after dropping all that payroll, the BoSox were able to overhaul themselves in the offseason - bringing in John Farrell as manager and adding players such as Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew, Jonny Gomes, Ryan Dempster and Shane Victorino. These teams havent met in the World Series since 1915, when the Sox beat the olf Brooklyn Dodgers. How about Pittsburgh and Detroit? The Pirates have gone from a 20-year playoff drought to having the best record in baseball. The Tigers, meanwhile, havent won the World series since 1984 and have dropped their last two appearances - in 2006 to St. Louis and 2012 to the Giants. It would also be a full circle World Series for Tigers skipper Jim Leyland who managed the Pirates in 1992 - the last time they made the playoffs. Atlanta and Boston would have some great historical overtones. Before Atlanta and before Milwaukee, the Braves were based in Boston. In fact, they came within a game of meeting Boston in the 1948 World Series. Trouble was, Cleveland knocked off the Sox in a one-game sudden death playoff for the American League title. Then Cleveland went on to beat the Boston Braves in the World Series, the last time the Indians won the "Fall Classic." Texas against St. Louis could be special. It would be a re-match of their epic seven-game duel just two years ago. Texas was twice within a strike of winning its first World Series, only to have the red birds rally to pull it out. The As and the Dodgers? Why not? Its the 25th anniversary of Kirk Gibsons iconic home run off Dennis Eckersley that propelled the Dodgers to that 1988 World Series victory. A meeting this time around would also feature the two Cuban sensations, The Dodgers Yasiel Puig and Oaklands Yoenis Cespedes. Why not Arizona vs. Tampa Bay? It might already bee too late for the D-Backs, but if nothing else youd have the novelty of the last two expansion teams playing each other.dddddddddddd Arizona won its only Fall Classic in 2001 over the Yankees in that emotional series in the wake of 9-11. The Rays made it to the World Series in 2008, but lost to the Phillies. The Reds vs. the Red Sox would feature a rematch of one of the greatest World Series of all time - the 1975 classic of 38 years ago. The Reds - one of the greatest teams ever - won the series in seven, but it will forever be remembered for Carlton Fisks home run down the left field line in Game 6. Cleveland and Cincinnati would feature an all-Ohio matchup, while Cleveland and Pittsburgh would feature two teams on long futility streaks. If Washington wasnt so far out, it would be great to see the Nationals play Baltimore, because the two cities are so close and their fans have such a rivalry. At the start of the season, I predicted a Detroit-Washington World Series. Then as recently as a couple of weeks ago, I did a reset and picked the Dodgers and the Rays, But after watching L.A. take Tampa apart over the weekend, Im hoping that doesnt happen. So I can go back to my pick at the top of the column - the Dodgers and the Red Sox. Watching John Farrell win a World Series in his first year in Boston might be a little too tough for Blue Jays fans to take. So it must be the Dodgers to win, with skipper Don Mattingly finally getting his due after nearly getting fired earlier this year. If you didnt catch it live or on the net, Ken Griffey Jr. gave an incredibly heart-felt speech when he was inducted into the Mariners Hall of Fame on Saturday Night. He spoke for 25 minutes and the entire ceremony went on for about an hour. One line in particular caught my attention. Griffey noted how proud his was, that one man, the Mariners late great play by play voice Dave Niehaus called his very first home run and his last. That is a team milestone that would seem unlikely ever to be touched. Another milestone of note - the Yankees Alfonso Soriano came up with his 2,000th hit on Sunday. It was a home run off the Tigers Justin Verlander. Soriano is th 274th player in history to get 2,000 hits. The man immediately ahead of him now is former Blue Jay Shawn Green at 2,003.
