TORONTO – Jose Bautista returned to the Blue Jays starting lineup, as the designated

TORONTO – Jose Bautista returned to the Blue Jays starting lineup, as the designated hitter, on Tuesday afternoon. Santiago Arias Colombia Jersey . He made his presence felt at first opportunity, hitting a home run to left-centre field in the first inning. The homer was Bautistas first since June 6, a span of 17 games. The slugger wasnt yet ready to resume playing defence. "I think the decision was made by Gibby to give me one or two days to kind of ease back into it," said Bautista. "Depending on how I feel tomorrow, possibly playing right field. If not, definitely in Oakland sometime." Bautistas bat is a welcome sight. However, because he couldnt play right field, manager John Gibbons was forced to send Adam Lind to the bench. The Blue Jays usually employ a first base-designated hitter combination of Lind and Edwin Encarnacion when an opponent starts a right-handed pitcher. Encarnacion started at first base on Tuesday. Baseballs leader with 59 walks and a .432 on-base percentage, Bautista did not take issue with Gibbons decision to keep him out of right field for at least one more day. "I want to play today and Im consciously not going to fight my manager because what hes doing I think is reasonable," said Bautista. "Same thing tomorrow. But if I feel well then theres no restrictions. Its not if I want to play and Im going to make it worse; I think Im old enough and disciplined enough to not risk making it worse by playing defence too soon." The Blue Jays went 3-4 in Bautistas absence from the starting lineup, including three-straight losses to the Chicago White Sox in games started by a left-handed pitcher. Toronto is scheduled to face three left-handers during its four-game set in Oakland, which starts on Thursday evening. The club could face two more southpaws next week in its three-game series in Anaheim. Jefferson Lerma Colombia Jersey . Particularly when speaking in the stadium of Tuesdays opponent: Manchester City. "Maybe they dont fear us as before," Pique said on Monday, "because in the last two years we didnt win the Champions League. Custom Colombia Jerseys .com) - Graeme McDowell opened up with a first- round, 5-under 67 on Thursday and he holds a 2-shot lead at the WGC - HSBC Champions. http://www.nationalcolombiafootball.com/...ia-jersey/ . Despite Arsenals financial firepower, the 31-year-old midfielder was the only arrival in the January transfer window. Signed until the end of the season as injury cover, Kallstrom might not be fit until mid-March after arriving Friday at Arsenal having injured his back earlier in the week while training with Spartak Moscow.OAKLAND, Calif. - Sammy Watkins has been in Buffalo less than a year and is already tired of all the talk about the Bills 14-season playoff drought.Thats the stigma with Buffalo, Watkins said. Thats all you hear. They never talk about the four Super Bowls that they went to. All you hear about is the 14 years that they didnt go to the playoffs. Its bad and we know that as a team and an organization. Were going to fix it.It wont be easy. The Bills (8-6) likely need to win their final two games starting Sunday in Oakland against the Raiders (2-12) and then get lots of help.Because of tiebreaking formulas, Buffalo ranks ninth out of the conferences nine teams with eight or more wins. Even with a win in Oakland, the Bills could be eliminated this week if Pittsburgh and Baltimore both win on Sunday and Cincinnati defeats Denver at home Monday night.But even being in contention this late in the season is an accomplishment for a team that has not made the post-season since 1999 and not finished with a winning record since 2004.This marks the first time since 2006 that the Bills are still alive heading into Week 16. They squandered a fourth-quarter lead in a 30-29 loss to Tennessee that year and missed the playoffs.They want to avoid a similar fate this week.We know the situation that were in right now, cornerback Corey Graham said. Pretty much if we dont win the game, we dont give ourselves a chance. Its pretty simple. You cant have a letdown when its a must win for you.Oakland has the second-longest active post-season drought in the NFL, this being the 12th straight season without a playoff bid.The Raiders are relegated to the role of spoiler, something they have done well at home the past few weeks. Oakland dealt a blow to Kansas Citys playoff hopes with a 24-20 win last month and helped lead to San Francisco missing out on the post-season with a 24-13 victory two weeks ago.Now the Raiders want to do it to Buffalo.Its the last opportunity to play at home in front of our fans right now, interim coach Tony Sparano said. We want to go out there, we want to play well. We want to win a football game against a good team out here.Some other things to watch when the Bills visit the Raiders:Big GrinOMINANT D: The Bills bring one of the NFLs stingiest defences led by a trio of pass rushers in Mario Williams, Marcell Dareus and Jerry Hughes. Jose Fernando Cuadrado Jersey. Buffalo has allowed 50 points in winning three of the past four games. The last two weeks against Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers have been particularly impressive. The two star quarterbacks combined to complete 31 of 62 passes for 358 yards, no touchdowns and four interceptions the past two weeks.ORDINARY O: Offense has been a different story for the Bills, who have scored only seven offensive touchdowns the past four weeks. Quarterback Kyle Orton has tailed off after providing a spark when he replaced EJ Manuel, and the running game has struggled for much of the season. The Bills could get a boost if running back C.J. Spiller can return from a broken collarbone.MIGHTY MACK: The Bills are quite familiar with Raiders rookie linebacker Khalil Mack, who played college ball at the University of Buffalo and was on the Bills radar at the draft. Buffalo traded up to No. 4 to draft Watkins, and the Raiders got Mack with the next pick. Both teams are happy with the results. Watkins has 59 catches for 850 yards. Mack leads the NFL with 11 tackles at or behind the line in the run game.He looks as advertised, Bills centre Eric Wood said. Quick, strong, explosive and just a good player on their defence for sure.HOME SWEET HOME: Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr has been a much different player at home. Carr has completed 61.2 per cent of his passes at the Coliseum, with 11 TDs, five interceptions and an 86.5 passer rating. That compares to a 57.8 completion percentage, seven TDs, six interceptions and a 70.3 rating in seven road games, plus a home game in London.RELIABLE RIVERA: Second-year tight end Mychal Rivera has turned into one of Oaklands most dependable receivers and one of the leagues most prolific tight ends. Since the start of Week 7, Rivera has 42 catches for 402 yards and four touchdowns. Only New Englands Rob Gronkowski has more catches since then among all NFL tight ends.___AP Sports Writer John Wawrow contributed to this report.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL China Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL T-shirts Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '
