GLENDALE, Ariz. Air Jordan 13 Online Shop NZ . -- The Arizona Coyotes have named former Buffalo Sabres general manager Darcy Regier as senior vice-president and assistant general manager. He replaces Brad Treliving, who became the Calgary Flames general manager in April, and will work under Coyotes GM Don Maloney. Regier spent 17 years as Buffalos general manager, the longest tenure in the franchises 44-year history. He helped lead the Sabres to the 1999 Stanley Cup final and the Eastern Conference final four times. The 58-year-old oversaw all aspects of Buffalos hockey operations and for the franchises AHL affiliate, the Rochester Americans. Air Jordan 13 NZ . Toronto has lost six of its last eight games but is coming off Thursdays 7-3 victory at Kansas City. Juan Francisco and Colby Rasmus both went deep for the Blue Jays, who are second in the American League with 34 home runs on the season. Air Jordan 13 For Sale NZ .com) - On a night the Bulls played without Derrick Rose, it was time for Pau Gasol to take charge. . Azarenka needed exactly one hour in a 6-1, 6-0 rout of Austrian Yvonne Meusburger to start the night session at Laver Arena. Sharapova had a much easier time earlier in the day with cooler conditions and took full advantage in 6-1, 7-6 (8-6) win over Frenchwoman Alize Cornet, while Radwanska had to rally for a 5-7, 6-2, 6-2 victory over Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.DENVER - New Colorado Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich is a Harvard graduate who looks at baseball from more of an analytical angle.He was promoted from within the organization after a fourth consecutive losing season and counts as his protege longtime GM Dan ODowd, who resigned Wednesday after a mostly unsuccessful tenure.A fresh start or more of the same? That was debate around the Mile High City soon after the Rockies announced their decision.ODowds wasnt exactly a rousing success, with his time at Coors Field reading like this: 15 years, four winning seasons, two post-season appearances, including a four-game World Series loss to Boston in 2007.He wasnt the only team executive to resign Wednesday. Senior vice-president Bill Geivett followed him out the front office door.Bridich understands the skepticism from fans, given his ties to ODowd. He insisted this wont be more of the same.Four straight years of losing baseball? If you ask anybody in this organization, its unacceptable and its tiring, said Bridich, who was promoted from senior director of player development. Its certainly not what people want and expect inside and outside the organization.While introducing Bridich, owner Dick Monfort said he was excited about a fresh start. Also at the gathering was manager Walt Weiss, who said a clean slate is the way we have to look at it. ... Its time to turn this thing around and bring playoff baseball back here.The last time Colorado made the post-season was five years ago.The highlight of ODowds stint came in 2007, when the Rockies rode the wave of winning 21 of 22 games all the way to the World Series.But ODowds power began to dwindle in recent years with the rise of Geivett, who was promoted to senior vice-president of baseball operations in August 2012.Geivett was given an office in the clubhouse, which at times made things a little uncomfortable for players and coaches. Geivett began focusing on roster management, particularly as it related to the pitchers, and evaluating the coaching staff and the rest of the players.That played a role in manager Jim Tracys resignation after the 2012 season, with a roughly $1.4 million deal still on the table. It opened the door for Weiss to manage the team he once helped on the field.And while having Geivett in such close quarters was an unconventional way by baseball standards, Weiss said he didnt have a problem with it. Air Jordan 13 Retro NZ. Contrary to popular belief, we got along just fine, Weiss said. Weve got to perform. Its time to do that.Through all the losses, Monfort remained fiercely loyal to ODowd and his staff. He thanked them on their way out.They have been friends and colleagues, and their families have been a part of the Rockies family, for a very long time, Monfort said.The call for some sort of change grew louder and louder from fans this season. Monfort even received emails from angry patrons; he responded by saying that if the fans werent happy with the bad baseball they were witnessing, maybe they shouldnt come to Coors Field. And that perhaps the city wasnt deserving of a major league team anymore. He later softened his stance.It was Monfort himself who raised expectations by predicting a 90-win season in the spring.Instead, the Rockies finished 66-96 and 28 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.Bridich takes over a team for which two of its biggest stars — Troy Tulowitzki (hip) and Carlos Gonzalez (knee) — missed chunks of the season with injuries. Tulowitzki has longed maintained he wants to play for a winner.I wouldnt limit that to Troy and CarGo. Id be surprised if any player said, I dont want to play for a winner, Bridich said. Im not going to sit here and tell you I have all the answers scripted in my supposedly analytical head right now and its going to work out perfectly. Thats going to be a process.The few bright spots in 2014 included Justin Morneau capturing the NL batting title and left-hander Jorge De La Rosas steady performance on the mound, especially at hitter-friendly Coors Field.We didnt perform to the expectations we had on ourselves, outfielder Michael Cuddyer said.An impending free agent, Cuddyer said before the Rockies last road trip that he would be open to a return.I believe in the guys that we broke out of spring training with, Cuddyer said. I believe in that team. Unfortunately, we werent able to put that team on the field very often.Whether Im here or not — the off-season is going to dictate that — but if I am, its because I believe in this team.
