The World Series is almost upon us. Its ironic that two of the oldest and most iconic teams have been taken to the Fall Classic by two men who are there for the first time in their careers and both of whom are relatively light in Major League managerial experience. St. Louis Cardinals skipper Mike Matheny is in his second year with St. Louis after succeeding Tony LaRussa after the Cardinals won the 2011 World Series. This was Mathenys first managerial job, period. John Farrell managed the Toronto Blue Jays for two years before getting "traded" to the Boston Red Sox this past off-season and this is only his third year managing in the Bigs. Only four rookie managers have ever won a World Series, while six more won in their first full-season at the helm of a team. The last rookie to turn the trick was former Blue Jays catcher Bob Brenly in 2001 when the Arizona Diamondbacks won their first and only World Series in that classic match-up with the New York Yankees. The other are "the Major," Ralph Houk, who led the 1961 Yankees to a Series win over the Cincinatti Reds, Eddie Dyer, who was at the helm of the 1946 Cardinals when they beat the Red Sox in seven games and Bucky Harris, who lead the 1924 Washington Senators to their one and only World Series title. Harris was only 27-years-old when he took over as player manager that season and won two more pennants over his 29 years as an MLB skipper and led the Yankees to a title in 1947. Of those four, Harris was the only one to make it into the Hall of Fame at Cooperstown. The group of six who won in their first full season as a skipper includes four Hall of Famers and one that in my mind should be. In 1920, Tris Speaker led the Cleveland Indians to their first World Series crown as a player-manager. Rogers Hornsby did the same for St. Louis in 1926, also as a player-manager. Legendary slugger Bill Terry, the last National Leaguer to hit .400, won as a player-manager with the New York Giants. Frankie Frisch also won as a player-manager with St. Louis in 1934. These four men refute the old argument that great players have a tough time becoming coaches or managers. The other two on that list are Dallas Green of the 1980 Phillies, who was really more regarded over the years as a general manager. The final name is that of Tom Kelly, who won two World Series with the Twins in 1987 and 1991. Why he isnt in the Hall of Fame is beyond me. This is the fourth meeting between the Cardinals and Red Sox in the World Series. In 1946 and again in 1967 (the Red Sox Impossible Dream Season,) St. Louis won in 7. But all of that was erased from memory by Red Sox fans when the BoSox ended their 86 year-long World Series drought by sweeping the Cardinals in 2004. This is the Cardinals fourth World Series appearance in 10 seasons (they own a 2-1 record in the previous three) and the Red Soxs third in the same decade (they won their previous two.) So essentially, this is for the bragging rights for best team since the start of the new millennium. Bob Elliot of the Toronto Sun has word that the Blue Jays are on the lookout for a catching upgrade are aiming for either Chris Iannetta or Hank Conger of the Los Angeles Angels in a trade. Clearly, since theyre not going to get into a bidding war for the likes of free agent-to-be Brian McCann, it shouldnt be any surprise that the Blue Jays would go back to the Mike Scioscia school of Catcher-nomics. Over the past six or seven years, the Blue Jays have employed, or at least briefly owned, four other Angels catchers who learned at the knee of Scoscia. Benji and Jose Molina were with the Angels when they beat the Giants in the 2002 World Series. Mike Napoli was acquired in the Vernon Wells trade and then was swapped four days later to the Texas Rangers for reliever Frank Francisco and cash and Jeff Mathis, who the Jays traded to Miami as part of that massive trade with the Marlins. Iannetta and Conger wouldnt hit for any more power than J.P Arencibia, but both are considered superior defensively.

Cheap NBA Jerseys . -- Jack Del Rio only wanted to talk about the Cowboys, not the Trojans.The Baltimore Ravens looked to Canada on the final day of the NFL draft. The Ravens selected Virginia defensive lineman Brent Urban, a six-foot-seven, 295-pound native of Mississauga, Ont., in the fourth round, No. 134 overall, Saturday. Then in the fifth round, Baltimore took Winnipeg native John Urschel, an offensive lineman at Penn State, at No. 175 overall. A third Canadian, Notre Dame receiver T.J. Jones -- another Winnipeg native -- was taken in the sixth round, No, 189 overall, by the Detroit Lions. Defence was Baltimores emphasis early in the draft, taking Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley in the first round Thursday night before selecting Florida State defensive lineman Timmy Jernigan in the second round Friday night. And on Saturday, the Ravens opted for Florida State safety Terrence Brooks with their first third-round pick before selecting Colorado State tight end Crockett Gillmore with their second pick in the third. Ravens coach John Harbaugh was surprised that Urban was still available in the fourth round. "Hes a guy when I first watched him thought second round at the latest," Harbaugh told the NFL Network. "Hes had a couple of injuries and things like that but you talk to this young man and hes a great guy. "Hes a hard worker, big, strong. He fits our defence. This guy is a guy who fits our scheme perfectly, a big, strong guy who fell to us so we couldnt be more happy with him." NFL draft guru Mike Mayock agreed. "Not only do I like the pick but he fits exactly what they do," he said. "The five technique is probably his best position, a 3-4 defensive end in a 3-4 defence. "I think hes a big, strong kid. Hes stout. In addition to playing that five technique, he could probably move inside also. So I like him and I think theres some significant upside there." Urban, 23, started eight games at defensive tackle with Virginia last year before suffering a severe high ankle sprain but still led all NCAA Division 1 defensive linemen with nine pass knockdowns. He was invited to the Senior Bowl but couldnt play in the game due to injury. Not surprisingly, Urban has been compared to Houston Texans star J.J. Watt, one of the NFLs top defensive lineman, and came into the draft projected as a defensive end in a 3-4 scheme -- three defensive linemen, four linebackers. Urban was selected in the second round of last years CFL draft by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats but elected to return to school. This marks the second straight year the Ticats have lost a highly touted defensive lineman to the NFL. Hamilton took Calgary Dinos defensive lineman Linden Gaydosh first overall in the 2013 CFL draft but the native of Peace River, Alta., signed wiith the Carolina Panthers as a free agent and spent all of last season on injured reserve after undergoing back surgery.dddddddddddd A converted hockey player -- he played AAA as a bantam in Mississauga -- Urban took up football his first year of high school at Lorne Park Secondary School before deciding to concentrate full-time on the sport. After high school, he attended Virginia and redshirted as a freshman. He served as a backup defensive end for two seasons before starting at tackle in 2012. Last season, Urban recorded 13 solo tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss and a sack. He was invited to this years Senior Bowl but was limited to just two practices because of his right ankle sprain. The major knock against Urban heading into the draft has been injuries. Urban underwent surgery in February and didnt participate in the NFL combine, where the top draft prospects undergo testing under the watchful eye of league coaches, GMs and scouts. Urban expects to be ready to participate in training camp come July. After being redshirted, Urban suffered a torn left ACL that limited him to just three games in 2010. He appeared in all 13 games in 2011, recording 15 tackles and 2.5 tackles for a loss but did undergo wrist surgery after the season. Urban started all 12 games at defensive end in 12, registering 20 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss and two sacks with a fumble return for a TD. The six-foot-three, 313-pound Urschel was born in Manitoba but played football at Canisuis High School in Buffalo, N.Y. He was a team captain at Penn State and earned all-Big 10 honours his final two seasons there and was one of 15 offensive guards invited to the 14 NFL combine but could also play centre as a pro. But he is much more than just a football player. He earned a masters degree in math and received the Campbell Trophy as U.S. college footballs top football scholar athlete. The six-foot, 195-pound Jones had his most productive season at Notre Dame in 2013 with 70 receptions for 1,108 yards and nine touchdowns. And he heads to the NFL with a definite pro pedigree. Jones late father, Andre, was a defensive end at Notre Dame who also played for the CFLs Winnipeg Blue Bombers while his uncle, Philip Daniels, is a former former NFL defensive lineman who played for Seattle, Chicago and Washington over 14 NFL seasons whos currently Washingtons director of player development. Also, his godfather is former Notre Dame flanker Raghib (Rocket) Ismail, who helped the Toronto Argonauts win the Grey Cup in 1991. Jones was born in Winnipeg before moving to Georgia, where he attended high school. As a true freshman in 2010, he started seven of 12 games with Notre Dame and had 23 catches for 306 yards and three TDs. ' ' '
