SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- In his first public comments since a domestic violence complaint was filed against New York Mets closer Jeurys Familia, general manager Sandy Alderson said the team already was likely to seek bullpen help before the legal problem surfaced last week.A complaint in municipal court in Fort Lee, New Jersey, dated Oct. 31 alleged the All-Star pitcher caused bodily injury to another. A hearing is scheduled for Nov. 14.Obviously, we were extremely disappointed and frankly shocked at the allegations, Alderson said Monday at the major league general managers meeting. Of course, he hasnt had a hearing yet and so the facts are to be determined.Alderson termed it not just an unfortunate situation, but a sad one for him and his family.The 27-year-old Familia led the majors with a franchise-record 51 saves this year and has 94 over the past two seasons for the Mets.I dont think that its fully sunk in yet as to what impact it will have simply because its not clear what exactly happened and how that will impact his availability, Alderson said. I think we were inclined to look at some additional late-inning help before this incident occurred.Under baseballs new domestic violence policy, Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman was suspended for the first 29 games of the 2016 season and Colorado shortstop Jose Reyes for 59 days. Reyes was released by the Rockies and signed with the Mets, his original big league team.As the meeting began, the Mets made $17.2 million qualifying offers to a pair of free agents, outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and second baseman Neil Walker. They have until next Monday to accept.Acquired from Detroit at the July 31 trade deadline in 2015, Cespedes had 17 home runs and 44 RBI in 57 games with the Mets down the stretch that year, helping them reach the World Series for the first time since 2000.After finding a slow market for his services in a free-agent class that also included outfielders Jason Heyward, Alex Gordon and Justin Upton, Cespedes made a surprise return to the Mets when New York agreed in January to a $75 million, three-year contract that allowed him to opt out after one season and $27.5 million.Cespedes had 31 homers and 86 RBI in 132 games this year, slowed after injuring his right quadriceps on July 8. He terminated the deal Saturday.We expected him to opt out. We did have one meeting with his agent, about a week, 10 days ago, Alderson said, adding he will meet with the agent again this week. I would say there was some interest on their part in perhaps doing something sooner rather than later. But I think this particular situation is going to have to work itself out. That doesnt mean that were looking for the same sort of late offseason resolution that we had last year.Walker, who had season-ending back surgery on Sept. 8, wants to remain with the Mets, and New York would like to keep him. While Alderson said a long-term contract is possible, he also said Walker might accept the qualifying offer.In a 30-minute assessment of his teams status, Alderson said he expects a return to health for the Mets starting rotation.Matt Harvey had surgery July 18 for thoracic outlet syndrome, Jacob deGrom had a September operation on the ulnar nerve in his right elbow and left-hander Steven Matz had bone spurs removed from his left elbow and a platelet-rich plasma injection in his left shoulder.Right-hander Noah Syndergaard also was slowed by bone spurs but did not have surgery, and right-hander Zack Wheeler hasnt returned to the major leagues from Tommy John surgery in March 2015.In spite of the bumps and bruises and things, people have expressed interest, Alderson said. Because of all these little -- these nicks and other things, I think its unlikely wed trade any of that pitching, in part because it is our strength and in part because right now it might be discounted a little bit in value.With the emergence of Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman, Alderson said the Mets could employ a six-man rotation at times or skip starts to keep guys fresh. He hopes to re-sign Bartolo Colon, who turns 44 in May.Were eight or nine deep, depending, the GM said. Am I confident theyre all going to be 100 percent? Well that would be probably unrealistic to believe, but I do think were going to be in a much better position with our starting pitching coming out of spring training next year than we have been.Alderson said the Mets will offer a 2017 contract to first baseman Lucas Duda, limited to 47 games because of a stress fracture in his lower back. He expects improved offense at catcher; starter Travis dArnaud had 15 RBI in 75 games, limited by a strained rotator cuff.You cant go into National League season with your eight hitter hitting essentially what your nine hitter is hitting, Alderson said. But we think we have the potential for improvement there.Captain David Wright, who lost weight after surgery June 16 to repair a herniated disk in his neck, is back to 215-218 pounds, according to Alderson. The GM also said he hopes to finalize the coaching staff in the next week but wouldnt say whether there would be changes. John Gibson Jersey Scott Niedermayer Jersey .

The nine-time Big 12 champion Jayhawks are positioning themselves for another title, as they have run out to a flawless 6-0 mark in conference play thus far. http://www.authenticduckspro.com/Cam-fowler-ducks-jersey/ . -- Yogi Ferrell orchestrates pretty much everything in Indianas offence. Nick Ritchie Ducks Jersey . McPhee said that Ovechkins father Mikhail is in stable condition after having the surgery this week and is no longer in intensive care. "Weve told him to stay as long as necessary with your dad," he said. Ovechkin and his Russian national team were eliminated from the mens hockey tournament in Sochi on Wednesday with a 3-1 quarter-final loss to Finland. Josh Manson Ducks Jersey . -- Timbers coach Caleb Porter didnt stray from his business-like approach to the season even after Portland downed the two-time defending league champion Los Angeles Galaxy to gain crucial playoff position. TUCSON, Ariz. -- Sefo Liufau has his groove back, and so does Colorados offense.It came at just the right time for the Buffaloes with a season-defining stretch up next.Liufau passed for three touchdowns and ran for another, helping No. 16 Colorado roll over Arizona 49-24 on Saturday night for the Buffaloes first four-game winning streak in 14 years.The victory keeps Colorado (8-2, 7-1 Pac-12, No. 12 CFP) atop the Pac-12 South with games against No. 23 Washington State and No. 13 Utah coming up to close out the regular season.Were right where we want to be, Lifau said.Liufau was sharp after being banged up against UCLA, hitting 19 of 27 passes for 213 yards, including two touchdowns to Shay Fields. Liufau also ran for a 2-yard score.Phillip Lindsay ran for 119 yards and three touchdowns, helping the Buffaloes to their best start since opening the 2001 season 8-2.It felt great, especially with the passing game; it has not been there, Fields said. Its something we stressed before this game.While Colorado is on course for the Pac-12 South title, Arizona (2-8, 0-7) is in the midst of its first seven-game losing streak since 2004.The Wildcats moved the ball well on offense but failed to capitalize on some early chances to allow Colorado to pull away.It hasnt been a great season, but were still going to come out and play, Arizona quarterback Brandon Dawkins said. Were not going to hand any teams any wins.Samajie Grant ran for 113 yards and two touchdowns and the Wildcats outgained Colorado 417-388 in total yards. Arizona also had 13 penalties for 143 yards and three drives that ended with missed field goals by Josh Pollack.Those are killers, Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said of the penalties. Its hard for us to stop somebody and we finally stop them, to give them a first down on a penalty with poor technique. Youre not a good football team when you do those tthings and you dont give yourself a chance to beat anybody.ddddddddddddHE TAKEAWAYColorado: The Buffaloes played the way they were supposed to against a downtrodden opponent to remain a game ahead of No. 13 Utah in the Pac-12 South.Arizona: The Wildcats defense was picked apart yet again and their offense was unable to capitalize on numerous chances. Arizona has two games left to avoid going winless in the Pac-12.LIUFAU-FIELDS CONNECTIONLiufau and Fields had a good thing going against one of the nations worst passing defenses.In the second quarter, Liufau hit Fields on a 47-yard pass, setting up Lindsay for a 4-yard touchdown run. Liufau followed that with a perfectly-placed pass to Fields for a 15-yard score that put the Buffaloes up 21-10.Fields added another score in the third quarter, a 27-yard catch that included a double move to get open and a broken tackle to get into the end zone.Fields finished with six catches for 108 yards.WILDCAT QUARTERBACKSArizona had both its top quarterbacks healthy again and they split time.Dawkins threw for 107 yards on 9-of-19 passing and ran for 81 yards before coming out late in the third quarter. Anu Solomon was 3 of 7 for 48 yards passing and ran for 11 yards before being replaced by Khalil Tate in the final three minutes.Brandon has run the ball well. Hes throwing the ball well, albeit the protection was breaking down, Rodriguez said. I think Anu went in there and did some good stuff. I may start him this week, but its better to watch the film so I can truly judge his performance.UP NEXTColorado hosts No. 23 Washington State next Saturday before its showdown against the Utes on Nov 26.Arizona plays at Oregon State next Saturday, then closes out the season against rival Arizona State.
