TORONTO – The first-place Blue Jays hit the halfway mark of the season with 45 wins and a two-game lead on Baltimore in the American League East, territory unfamiliar to a franchise still waiting for its first playoff game since October 23, 1993, the night Joe Carter walked off Mitch Williams into World Series lore. "Im proud of the way the guys played," said manager John Gibbons. "It was kind of a so-so start and we kicked it in there in the month of May and put ourselves in a good position. Now, you know, we just need to do that again in the second half or even improve on that but Im very, very happy with the effort and the way the guys have been playing baseball. Its that simple." You wont find a Mission Accomplished banner hanging in the clubhouse. The expectation is much greater. "Has it met it yet? No," said Casey Janssen. "Our expectation is to make the playoffs and win the World Series and were not there yet. Weve got a long way to go. I think everyone believed we could be this type of team but were not throwing a party yet, we know that. We know theres a ton of talent here and its the AL East so anything can happen." Despite a recent downturn in offensive production, through 81 games Toronto continues to sit in the top seven of most major categories. The club sits first in the majors with 104 home runs. Its fourth with a .262 batting average and .331 on-base percentage. The on-base plus slugging percentage of .767 ranks third and its 272 walks are seventh. The most pleasant surprise and biggest disappointment reside on the same spot: the pitchers mound. The pleasant surprise: Blue Jays starters lead the American League with 35 wins (a number not reached until the 135th game last season) and the staff ERA of 3.87 is best in the AL East. The biggest disappointment: the bullpen, the ray of sunshine in a stormy 2013 season, has compiled baseballs fourth-worst ERA (4.4Cool. Its a target for improvement. "I think there are some times when weve got to be better in the bullpen," said Gibbons. "Weve got to shore that up a little bit. Its like anything, consistency over the whole pitching staff and hopefully you stay healthy enough." The Blue Jays have been fortunate to remain relatively healthy, dealing with injuries theyve been able to cover. Maicer Izturis was a backup infielder. Brandon Morrow wasnt pitching well when he got hurt. Colby Rasmus missed 33 games with a hamstring strain and the Jays got by with an Anthony Gose-Kevin Pillar platoon in centerfield. The medical staff is now doing the dance with Jose Bautista as he deals with a hamstring problem, which could be made worse if rushed. Bautista will run sprints on Saturday morning and depending on how he feels, could be available to at least pinch hit on the weekend. QUIET TIME FOR JANSSEN Wondering where closer Casey Janssen has been these days? Hes around. He just hasnt pitched much due to a lack of save opportunities. Since notching his 12th save of the season on June 15 in Baltimore, Janssen has appeared twice. He mopped up the epic, 14-9 comeback win on June 20 in Cincinnati. He threw the ninth inning of a 6-6 game against the Yankees on June 24 and got the win when the Blue Jays walked off. It can be difficult for relievers when they go through a period without consistent work. "I feel like saves come in bunches at times," said Janssen. "You get opportunities to pitch maybe in a lopsided game one way or another if it gets to be too long. Sometimes there are times when you dont get in but you get up. Im one of those guys that always has relied on my command and I guess it comes a little more natural to me than others." Janssen has 12 saves in 14 opportunities this season. "Sometimes the rest is good, knowing that the tough stretch is going to come at some point," said Janssen. Expect Janssen to get into a game before the weekend is over, regardless of whether Toronto has a lead of three or less. Janssen speaks to pitching coach Pete Walker about his schedule, who relays the message to manager John Gibbons. If Janssen goes four or five days without action his arms reaction to its diminished workload becomes less predictable. "You wonder if your arms going to be a little cranky or if its going to be super fresh," said Janssen. "Sometimes you feel great when you get the rest and sometimes youre kind of knocking the dust off a little bit." Remember that Janssen had an abbreviated spring training thanks to stiffness in the back of his pitching shoulder. He didnt appear in a Grapefruit League game until the final week of March. Then, in Montreal, he strained his left oblique and didnt make his season debut until May 12. Its been a build for Janssen, who anticipates being able to pitch on three consecutive days, if needed, as the importance of each game ramps up. "I feel like Id love to do it and Id love to have the opportunity to do it," said Janssen. "I think a lot of those three in a rows depend on how the first two went and the stress level of those innings. My goal is to be able to pitch in every opportunity possible, especially as the season gets further along and as this division and the race gets tight and everything like that."

Zapatillas Mujer Baratas . The mixed zone is not a place to make friends.DURHAM, N.C. -- Dukes shooting cooled as the game wore on while its defence had trouble consistently slowing down Gardner-Webbs hot shooting. Then again, Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski said, it was an OK performance for a team coming off such a long break. Freshman Jabari Parker scored 21 points to help No. 8 Duke beat Gardner-Webb 85-66 on Monday night in its first game in nearly two weeks. Andre Dawkins added a season-high 18 points for the Blue Devils (8-2), who hadnt played since beating Michigan on Dec. 3 in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. That break, which included final exams, came after a tough stretch of four games in 10 days that included a loss to top-ranked Arizona in the NIT Season Tip-Off championship and a one-point home win over Vermont just before Thanksgiving. "You dont stop playing for two weeks and not have some slippage," Krzyzewski said. "But overall I was pleased with our team." Duke wont have to wait nearly as long to get back on the court. The Blue Devils face UCLA on Thursday in New York in their last game before the Christmas holiday. Duke had its good and bad moments in this one, though it led by a comfortable margin all game. The offence roared to a fast start with accurate shooting and unselfish basketball, though things slowed down after halftime. The defence didnt do much to slow the Runnin Bulldogs (6-6) in the first half, but Krzyzewski said the Blue Devils played better on that end in the second half. Duke led by 14 points at halftime and by 23 in the second half on the way to earning its 108th straight home nonconference victory. Parker said the Blue Devils had a "a little bit of a setback" when it came to talking to each other on the defensive end. "For the Michigan game we were really awake and aware of their players," Parker said. "But this game we kind of let them go to their tendencies and we saw it played out well for them." Quinn Cook, who had 16 points and nine assists for Duke, noticed something else as the Blue Devils couldnt miss on the offensive end through the first 14 1/2 minutes.dddddddddddd "I think when we get it going offensively like that, we kind of get lazy on defence," Cook said. "We had it going early so we got lazy. But at some point, weve got to just get it out of our system." Duke made 17 of its first 23 shots (74 per cent) with 14 assists on those baskets before finishing the half at nearly 59 per cent. The Blue Devils shot just 8 for 22 (36 per cent) after halftime and finished the game at 50 per cent, though they hit nine 3-pointers and converted 15 offensive rebounds into 13 second-chance points. Jerome Hill scored a career-high 22 points on 9-for-10 shooting to go with nine rebounds to lead Gardner-Webb, which shot nearly 63 per cent in the opening half before finishing at 54 per cent for the game. "We played pretty good offensively the entire first half," Gardner-Webb coach Tim Craft said. "Unfortunately we couldnt get any stops on the other end." Parker finished 7 of 12 from the field with six rebounds in 26 minutes. Dawkins, a fifth-year senior guard who sat out last season while he dealt with his sisters death during his freshman year, finished 6 of 10 from the field, including 4-for-8 shooting from 3-point range. He knocked down his first four shots to help Duke to its fast start, which included a 7-0 burst in the span of a minute. Tyler Thornton knocked down a 3 off an inbounds pass and Parker following with a jumper in the lane and a dunk on an alley-oop feed from Cook to make it 46-25 with 5 1/2 minutes left in the first half. The only problem for Duke? Gardner-Webb didnt miss much, either. Gardner-Webb got as close as 56-44 on Hills layup with 17:07 left, but Rodney Hood (15 points) answered with a three-point play to turn away what amounted to Gardner-Webbs closest push. Dawkins followed with a 3 a minute later for a 62-46 lead, and Duke led by at least 16 the rest of the night. The Blue Devils took their largest lead at 74-51 on Parkers free throws with 10:42 left.
