The Colorado Rapids can move closer to an MLS playoff bid while the Vancouver Whitecaps look to keep their faint postseason hopes alive when they meet Saturday at BC Place in Vancouver, British Columbia. Adidas NMD Aanbieding .Colorado (12-5-11) is third in the Western Conference with 47 points, one point behind the second-place Los Angeles Galaxy and three points ahead of fourth-place Real Salt Lake. The Rapids can likely clinch a postseason berth with wins over the Whitecaps and the Portland Timbers.Vancouver (9-14-7) is tied with the San Jose Earthquakes for eighth in the Western Conference with 34 points, one point behind the seventh-place Seattle Sounders and six points behind sixth-place Sporting KC. The Whitecaps would likely have to win their four remaining matches to make the playoffs.Until its mathematically impossible, we wont be giving in, Vancouver coach Carl Robinson said.These teams were in much different positions a year ago. Vancouver finished second in the Western Conference with 16 wins and 53 points before losing in the conference finals. Colorado finished last in the Western Conference with 37 points last season.Theyve managed to instill a little bit of hunger with the team, a never-say-die attitude, Robinson said. We need to get back to that as well. Weve done it at times this season as well, but not enough.Colorado is led by Shkelzen Gashi, who has five goals and four assists this season. Kevin Doyle has four goals. Marco Pappa has four assists.Pedro Morales has a team-high six goals for Vancouver. Christian Bolanos and Kekuta Manneh have scored five goals apiece, but Manneh has been sidelined since early July with a broken foot.This will be the third and final meeting this season. They played to a 2-2 draw in July after Axel Sjoberg scored a stoppage-time equalizer. The Rapids rolled to a 2-0 victory last month in Colorado. Adidas NMD R1 Goedkoop .J. -- Marshawn Lynch said Thursday it will be good to get back to football after the Seattle quiet talking running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week. Adidas Stan Smith Goedkoop . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. . DAmigo scored twice in regulation and added the shootout winner as the Toronto Marlies edged the San Antonio Rampage 5-4 in American Hockey League action. BOSTON -- Today, tomorrow, for years and decades to come, the debate will rage over the greatest Boston Red Sox player ever. One generation will argue for Ted Williams, another will offer a compelling case for Carl Yastrzemski or Jim Rice or Pedro Martinez.Its indisputable, though, that David Ortiz is the most prolific winner in the franchises 115-year history.And so, on the occasion of Ortizs final regular-season game, the Red Sox showered their iconic designated hitter with gifts, brought back 24 of his former teammates from the 2004, 2007 and 2013 World Series-winning teams and announced they will retire his No. 34 early next season, making him the first player to have his uniform number taken out of circulation by the Red Sox before he is elected to the Hall of Fame.Ortiz was feted in an emotional 40-minute pregame ceremony at Fenway Park that included Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and even Dominican Republic President Danilo Medina and concluded with Big Papi going down on one knee and doffing his cap to salute the fans.Before the festivities, Red Sox manager John Farrell said, there may be no more important player ever in this organization, and Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred called Ortiz transformational, noting that he changed the course of this franchise and changed the city, a reference to the sluggers impassioned and expletive-laced speech in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013.We have great memories and theres still great memories to be made in the next few weeks, but hes a legend and hes going to be missed by all of us, Walsh said. What hes done off the field is almost as big as the accomplishments on the field. What hes done with his foundation and really lifting the city up following the Marathon bombing, everyone climbed on his back and he just got the city back on track.As much as anything -- including his 540 career home runs -- that will be Ortizs legacy in Boston. He represents the only common denominator between the 2004, 2007 and 2013 World Series champions, but more than that, he came to symbolize the city since his arrival in 2003.Ortiz was given a haul of gifts that included the creation of a fellowship program to promote diversity in front offices across MLB. Baker presented him with a sign for the David Ortiz Bridge, a renamed span of Brookline Avenue that crosses over the Massachusetts Turnpike, while Walsh gave him a street sign for David Ortiz Drive, a newly named section of road near Fenway Park.Later, a parade of former teammates, including Manny Ramirez, poured onto the field, with Martinez, Mike Lowell and Jonny Gomes holding the 2004, 2007 and 2013 WWorld Series trophies, respectively. Adidas Superstar Goedkoop. We had a lot of, I would say, elite players, and I think David is one of the catalysts to that, Lowell said. The fact that he is someone from another country that endeared himself to learning English and being able to express himself, I think he was able to really bridge a gap. He already had that relationship with the Latin players, but I think it really extended to guys from everywhere. When youre that good and you still make other people feel important, I think thats a pretty special quality.And it wasnt only with his fellow teammates. The Red Sox Foundation and team ownership pledged to donate a total of $1 million to the David Ortiz Childrens Fund, a charity that has provided life-saving surgeries for more than 500 children in New England and the Dominican Republic.He can have a conversation with the CEO of a Fortune 500 company or a transplant recipient whos 8 years old and feel like everybody is engaged and be on the same level with everyone in between -- all the while in a second language, Farrell said. Hes truly a remarkable person.Manfred addressed the complex part of Ortizs legacy.In 2009, Ortizs name was leaked to The New York Times as one of the players who tested positive for PEDs in 2003 survey testing, which led to MLBs current drug-testing policy. Manfred noted there were several results that were scientifically indisputable at the time, but could not say whether Ortiz was among them because MLB agreed to keep results confidential and the results were subsequently destroyed.I do know that hes never been a positive at any point under our program [implemented in 2004], said Manfred, who indicated he will meet with Ortiz in the Dominican Republic this winter to discuss a potential role as an ambassador for the league. I think that the feeling was, at the time that name was leaked, that it was important to make people understand that even if your name was on that list that it was entirely possible that you were not a positive.But this was a day to celebrate Ortiz, who completed one of the best farewell seasons in baseball history and will now have one last postseason with the Red Sox to add a fourth title to his résumé.?With no disrespect to the greats who have worn this uniform, I think what weve seen over the past 14-15 years, the way this franchise has elevated itself, there may be no more important player ever in this organization, Farrell said. Just the visibility, the magnitude, in combination with the winning, David Ortiz is right in the hub of that. ' ' '
