TORONTO -- Hes been snubbed a final time by the Baseball Writers Association of America, but Roberto Alomar believes theres a spot in Cooperstown for Jack Morris. Morris was denied induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday, his 15th and final year on the writers ballot. The veteran right-hander was named on 61.5 per cent of BWAA votes, well short of the 75 per cent minimum requirement. "You feel disappointed but on the other hand its something I cant vote for," Alomar, currently a special advisor with the Blue Jays, said Thursday. "He has my vote. "I would love to see him in the Hall of Fame already." Alomar, 45, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2011. The 12-time all-star second baseman and Morris were Toronto teammates in 1992 and 1993 when the Blue Jays captured consecutive World Series titles. Morris won 259 games over 18 seasons with Detroit, Minnesota, Toronto and Cleveland. Morris claimed more victories in the 1980s than any other pitcher and threw a dramatic complete-game, 10-inning shutout to win Game 7 of the 91 World Series for the Twins. But Morriss critics point to his lofty earned-run average (3.90) and failure to capture a Cy Young award -- given annually to the top pitchers in the American and National Leagues -- as reasons against his induction into Cooperstown. After leading Minnesota to its World Series crown, Morris signed as a free agent with Toronto and won 21 games -- tops in the majors -- with a 4.04 ERA in 92. Although he struggled in the playoffs, Morris was the Jays opening-day starter the following year. However, after posting a 7-12 record with a 6.19 ERA, Morris failed to see any playoff action in 93. The five-time all-star later signed with Cleveland but was released in early August with 10-6 record and 5.60 ERA. Morriss Hall of Fame quest isnt necessarily over. He could still be nominated by the Veterans Committee, which reconsiders the careers of retired players bypassed by baseball writers. However, Morris must now wait three years to become eligible for consideration. But Alomar is confident it will be well worth it. "No, its not over," Alomar said. "I think eventually hell be inducted into the Hall of Fame. "Sometimes its takes longer for others but as long as you get in, thats all that matters." Alomar was back on the Rogers Centre turf Thursday participating in the clubs winter training day in support of the Jays Care Foundation. Participants fundraised a minimum of $500 -- with proceeds supporting the Blue Jays Baseball Academy Rookie League national program -- to receive on-field instruction from Alomar and fellow former Jays Jesse Barfield, Pat Tabler, Lloyd Moseby and Homer Bush. Alomar said theres no question in his mind Morris deserves a Hall of Fame nod. "He was a good teammate," Alomar said. "I always said if you wanted a guy pitching on the mound in the seventh game of the World Series, it should be Jack Morris. "Thats the guy Id vote for." There will be a Toronto flavour during this years induction ceremony. Among those in this years Hall of Fame class are manager Bobby Cox and slugger Frank Thomas, both former Blue Jays. Cox managed in Toronto from 1982 to 85, then led the Atlanta Braves into the 92 World Series against his former club. "Bobby Cox had a great career," Alomar said. "I never played for him, I played against Bobby. "He was a great manager, he had a lot of players talk real highly of him. He had a great winning percentage and its well deserved that he was voted into the Hall of Fame." Cox, who guided Atlanta to the 95 World Series title, isnt the only big-name former manager heading into the Hall of Fame. Joining him will be Tony La Russa and Joe Torre, both multiple World Series champions who like Cox also won more than 2,000 career games over their stellar major-league careers. "Unbelievable," Alomar said. "The only sad thing is I didnt get the chance to play for any of them. "But Im a big fan of theirs, I have a lot of respect for them. Im honoured to be part of that day with them and I cant wait until that day comes when I can congratulate them personally." Thomas was twice named the American League MVP over his 19-year career and was regarded as one of the games top hitters. He spent the 07 season and 16 games of the 08 campaign with Toronto, and was a Blue Jay when he belted his 500th career homer June 28, 2007 versus Minnesota. JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey .

Matt Feiler Jersey .com) - Mike Miller scored a season-high 21 points in a rare start and the Cleveland Cavaliers bounced back from their worst loss of the season with a 95-91 win over the Brooklyn Nets. Franco Harris Jersey . Miralem Pjanic dribbled through the defence to score an extraordinary goal in the 43rd minute at the Stadio Olimpico and Gervinho added another from a rebound in the 65th for Romas ninth straight victory — ending Milans five-match winning streak.OTTAWA -- Craig Anderson credited a couple bounces among his 40 saves in the Ottawa Senators latest win. His play was the bright spot in a drab 2-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday. "When called upon youve got to be there for them," said Anderson, who earned his ninth win of the season. "(Thursday) was one of those nights where everything kind of went my way. I got the bounces. We did the little things that pay off and end up winning you the game as opposed to looking good on the scoresheet." Like the Senators, Anderson has had his share of struggles this season, but has looked better as of late. "Our goaltender obviously made a conscious decision that he was going to be competitive and gave us a chance to win," said Senators coach Paul MacLean. MacLean has been looking for a more consistent effort from his team and with points in their last four games the Senators are finally showing signs of it. "Weve had a good week, but we cant be satisfied with that," said Anderson. "This week means nothing if we dont continue with the progress for the next game." Bobby Ryan and Zack Smith scored for the Senators (13-14-6), who will look to extend their point streak Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings. Tyler Ennis scored the lone goal for the Sabres (7-23-2). Ryan Miller faced 32 shots. This was the second of back-to-back games between the two teams with the Sabres winning Tuesday 2-1 in a shootout. Anderson was solid in the third with the Senators holding a 2-1 lead. He made a big save on Mark Pysyk early in the period and another on Drew Stafford late in the period to preserve the lead. He was called upon yet again in the final two minutes as Milan Michalek took a holding penalty. "I think Anderson played well," said Ennis. "Scoring goals is hard." These two teams have a history of playing a less than exciting style of hockey against one another, which could be the reason for the second smallest crowd of the season with just 15,578 on hand. Smith realized that Thursdays game may not have been the most exciting from a fans standpoint, but hoped that the win more than makes up for it. "Weve struggled to put wins together so when you get four games andd points in all of them its pretty huge," said Smith.dddddddddddd "Its good to get going and get the confidence up." The second period was a struggle for both teams. Ottawa continued to have trouble in their own end, but were fortunate as the Buffalo offence had its own problems. Anderson was also able to make up for any glaring mistakes. Smiths second-period goal at the six-minute mark held up as the winner. Kyle Turris made a nice pass and Smith was the benefactor as the puck bounced off a skate to his stick and he swept it past Miller. Ottawa nearly gave up the first goal -- yet again -- but caught a break when John Scott was called for goaltender interference early in the game. The Senators managed to make the most of the opportunity and scored first as Ryan picked up his 15th of the season midway through the period. Turris made a cross-ice pass to Ryan, who was left all alone in front. Sabres head coach Ted Nolan admitted both goals were just a matter of players breaking down for a couple of seconds. "If you dont turn for one split second its in the net, and thats what happened." The Sabres made it 1-1 on a power-play wraparound goal by Ennis late in the first. "They gave me a lot of time to walk it and take it in front," said Ennis. "I just tried to throw it in and I got a good bounce." It was a special night for Ottawa native Cody Ceci, who was an emergency recall, and made his NHL debut Thursday. Ceci ended up plus-2, played 20:40 and was on the ice in the final minutes as the Senators killed a penalty. "It was definitely a special experience," said Ceci. "Its always nice when the coach shows confidence in you and puts you out in the last minute. For him to pick me was pretty special so I tried to make the most of it and do my best not to let them score." Notes: D Joe Corvo played in his 700th NHL game and D Jared Cowen sat out the first of his two-game suspension. The Senators also recalled C Jean-Gabriel Pageau. D Marc Methot was out with the flu and LW Matt Kassian was a healthy scratch for the Senators. a The Sabres were without top-scoring C Cody Hodgson, who has an undisclosed injury. D Brayden McNabb was a healthy scratch.
