SEATTLE -- Jack Zduriencik does not see the Seattle Mariners making another splash signing before the start of spring training after an off-season of big moves highlighted by the signing of second baseman Robinson Cano. Beattie Feathers Jersey . What he would like to acquire is another veteran pitcher to add to a starting rotation that has a pair of aces at the top and then a handful of promising prospects behind them without much major league experience. "I dont suspect well make a major move but we hopefully will do a couple of things that will be tweaks that help the club certainly for this year," Zduriencik said Thursday. How the rotation gets filled out will be one of the major questions when Seattle reports for spring training in the middle of February. Pitchers and catchers will be on the field Feb. 13 and the first full squad workout is Feb. 18. Seattle has the top of its rotation settled with former AL Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwkuama forming a formidable combo. But the bridge between that pair and some of the youngsters Seattle would like to see take the final spots in the rotation is the question. Asked if he was comfortable with how his rotation sits, Zduriencik said, "not tremendously." "I think there is certainly potential there. There are some things that have to come together. When youre placing a lot of faith and trust in young kids that have very short windows of success, thats risky," Zduriencik said. "I will say that theyre talented but how quickly they become legitimate major leaguers, is yet to be seen. There may be opportunities for us in the next period of time, few days or so, maybe well be able to add something to it." Manager Lloyd McClendon said he would be disappointed if top prospect Taijuan Walker didnt make the rotation out of spring training, but hes expected to contend with James Paxton, Erasmo Ramirez and Brandon Maurer for one of those final spots. There is not a higher-regarded prospect in the Mariners system than Walker. He was described by Zduriencik as the best athlete in the entire organization and he called his brief call-up at the end of last season "short and impressive." Walker made three starts for Seattle last season, going 1-0 with a 3.40 ERA. He struck out 12 batters in 15 innings pitched in his major league debut. "Hes young, hes talented, hes got a ton of ability. He has to acclimate himself to being a big league starting pitcher," Zduriencik said. "How quickly that comes, I dont know. Everybody is different." Aside from the rotation, Seattle also has significant questions about how its outfield will shake out, specifically centre field. The Mariners are hopeful that newly acquired outfielders Logan Morrison and Corey Hart are healthy enough to be regulars at the corner outfield spots. That leaves centre field jumbled with Dustin Ackley, Michael Saunders and Franklin Gutierrez as options. "As we roll into spring training its all up to them," Zduriencik said. "I cant tell you who the centre fielder is going to be. I can tell you who the candidates are. I cant tell you who the left fielder is going to be. I can tell you who the candidates are. ... If were going to be a really good ball club, lets see what happens in spring training. Its up to them." Kevin Butler Jersey . Showing more spark after not taking enough challenging shots on goal in their 1-0 loss Friday night, the Bruins had 18 shots in the first period after managing just 25 in the entire opener. Luke Glendening cut Bostons lead to 2-1 at 13:20 of the second period before Milan Lucic scored late in the second and Zdeno Chara added a power-play goal early in the third. Ken Margerum Jersey . Chris Heisey connected for his first grand slam and Devin Mesoraco homered and drove in a career high-tying four runs as Cincinnati took advantage of Tampa Bays depleted pitching staff for a 12-4 victory on Sunday. http://www.custombearsjersey.com/custom-willie-galimore-jersey-large-2156t.html .500 were once common achievements for the Dallas Mavericks. Now, both are season highs as Dallas slowly works its way back into playoff contention in the Western Conference.MILAN, Italy -- Juventus eased to a comfortable 3-1 win over bitter rival Inter Milan in the Italian league on Sunday to extend its lead at the top of the table to nine points. Stephan Lichtsteiner, Giorgio Chiellini and Arturo Vidal scored for Juventus before Rolando grabbed a consolation for Inter in the match known as the derby dItalia -- Italys derby. Antonio Contes team extended its lead over second-place Roma, which saw its match against Parma abandoned after eight minutes due to a waterlogged pitch. Juventus also moved 15 points ahead of Napoli, which fell to a surprise 3-0 loss at Atalanta as German Denis struck twice against his former club. "We had three or four good counterattacks and then we made a mistake," Napoli coach Rafa Benitez said. "Then we had another chance but then we again made a mistake, and then there was another mistake. In summary, we gifted them three goals. "Teams put a lot of men behind the ball against us so its difficult to find space, but when we have chances we have to score. It wasnt my team selection which made the difference today, but mistakes." At the other end of the table, Catania drew 3-3 at home to Livorno in a tense relegation battle between the two bottom clubs in Serie A. Sassuolo also remained in the relegation zone after a 2-1 defeat at home to Hellas Verona, which snapped a run of three successive defeats. Lazio continued its resurgence under Edy Reja as it comfortably beat Chievo Verona 2-0. Juventus almost took the lead with less than three minutes on the clock but Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic pulled off a fantastic double save to deny Carlos Tevez from point-blank range. The home side did go in front in the 16th minute when Lichtsteiner was left unmarked to send a diving header into the bottom left corner following a great ball from Andrea Pirlo. Inter should have reduced the deficit shortly before halftime with its first real chance of the night but Rodrigo Palacio fired narrowly over the bar. Juventus doubled its lead two minutes after the break when Chiellini -- who was wearing the captains armband in place of the suspended Gianluigi Buffon -- capitalized on Paul Pogbas persistence to bundle the ball into the back of the net. Vidal sealed the match eight minutes later, slotting home the rebound after Handanovic had saved Pogbas effort. Roland fired into the far bottom corner, through a crowd of bodies to reduce the deficit in the 71st. Kyle Orton Jersey. Mirko Vucinic came off the bench for Juventus four minutes from time and he almost scored against the club he nearly joined, but saw his effort deflected off the left upright. Napoli instigated its own downfall in Bergamo as a series of defensive howlers led to a crushing defeat. Atalanta broke the deadlock less than two minutes after halftime. Blerim Dzemaili gave the ball away in midfield and Denis powerful drive from outside the area bounced under the diving Napoli goalkeeper Pepe Reina. Denis -- who spent four years at Napoli -- doubled his tally in the 65th minute when he latched on to a poor attempted clearance from Gokhan Inler and fired across into the bottom left corner. Maxi Moralez sealed the result five minutes later following another error from Federico Fernandez. Romas match against Parma was abandoned after only eight minutes play, with the score at 0-0. Bottom club Catania remained two points behind Livorno after an entertaining draw, which helps neither club in the relegation battle. Catania fought back from a goal down three times as Innocent Emeghara scored twice for Livorno, which also had a penalty converted by Paulinho. Gonzalo Bergessio and Pablo Barrientos scored for Catania, and the home side levelled for the third time in the final minute when substitute Sergio Almiron was left unmarked at the far post to control and fire in a cross. Livorno moved level on points with Sassuolo after new coach Alberto Malesanis debut ended in defeat against his former club. Verona broke the deadlock five minutes into the second half when Tomas Manfredini turned Emil Hallfredssons cross into his own net at full stretch as he attempted to prevent the ball reaching Luca Toni. Toni all but sealed the match three minutes from time when he beat the offside trap and chipped the onrushing goalkeeper Gianluca Pegolo. Antonio Floro Flores headed home Domenico Berardis free kick in stoppage time for a consolation goal for Sassuolo. Lazio has not lost since Reja replaced Vladimir Petkovic. It took six minutes for the capital side to take the lead against lowly Chievo as Antonio Candreva fired in Keita Baldes cross. The 18-year-old Balde capped an impressive performance by scoring Lazios second, when his effort was deflected into the near corner. ' ' '
