DETROIT - Detroit Tigers All-Star shortstop Jhonny Peralta said he shouldnt be on the list of players linked to the Biogenesis case. "Its wrong," Peralta said Wednesday after hitting a double in Detroits 11-1 win over the Washington Nationals. "But whatever happens, I need to fight and try to move on." Before and after the game, which might end up being his last one for a while, Peralta insisted he didnt not know whether Major League Baseball planned to suspend him. "I dont hear nothing yet," he said. Detroit doesnt have a game scheduled Thursday. While discipline had been expected to be announced Friday, it now appears the probe wont be wrapped up until at least the weekend. "I dont feel nervous," Peralta said. "But yeah, I worry a little bit because I want to play every day here, and I love to be here in Detroit." If Peralta is suspended 50 games for first offence under baseballs drug program, he would lose $1,639,344 of his $6 million salary. Tigers manager Jim Leyland wouldnt even let a reporter finish a question about Peraltas possible suspension, which would likely make it difficult for him to get into playing shape toward the end of the regular season for a possible post-season run. "Im not going to talk about that at all," Leyland bristled. Peralta is batting .307 with 10 homers, 53 RBIs and a team-high 29 RBIs in 101 of the teams 106 games. "Hes very important to this team," Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander said. "Hes obviously had an All-Star- calibre season, and hes gone out there and played just about every game at shortstop. "You lose a guy like that, thats tough. But I cant comment on how it would go to lose him because I dont know what the possibilities are." Even though Peralta said he needed to "fight," he declined to say whether he would appeal a suspension. Peralta would acknowledged being disheartened if he is forced to miss nearly one-third of the season. "Its going to be disappointing, but theres nothing that I can do," he said. The AL Central-leading Tigers are trying to finish first in three straight seasons for the first time since 1907-09. They havent won the World Series since 1984. Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said the team protected itself against a suspension by acquiring slick-fielding infielder Jose Iglesias from Boston in a three-team trade Tuesday night. "If it were a 15-day thing, like a typical injury, I think we could have comfortably dealt with it with the players we already have," Dombrowski said. "But when you start to talk about 50 days and a possible playoff run, we feel better going ahead with Jose." Even though there has been speculation for months that Peralta would be suspended, the 31-year-old native of Dominican Republic said he has attempted to not pay attention. "I try to play baseball every day and try to come in ready to play every day and dont try to worry," he said. MLB has told the union which players it intends to suspend, and the sides are trying to reach as many agreements as possible that would avoid grievance hearings, two people familiar with the talks told The Associated Press. Baseball hopes to announce the penalties for all players involved at the same time, both people said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcements were authorized. Under baseballs Joint Drug Agreement, suspensions for violations not caused by a positive test are effective on the third business day after the discipline is issued -- another sign pointing to a Friday announcement. Peralta said he hasnt talked to anybody about the evidence against him as part of the investigation. "I dont talk to nobody," he said. Cheap NFL Black Jerseys .

We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check. LAS VEGAS -- Not one player in Dukes basketball program was born when the 1991 Blue Devils pulled off one of the biggest upsets in Final Four history.So, Thursday, on a five-hour flight to Las Vegas, coach Mike Krzyzewski made his players watch footage from 25 years ago, when Duke beat UNLV 79-77 an epic upset in the national semifinals. It was revenge for the year prior, when UNLV throttled Duke 103-73 in the national championship.It was the perfect motivation that set the tone for the fifth-ranked Blue Devils, who got a career-high 34 points from Grayson Allen en route to a 94-45 victory over UNLV on Saturday in the first college basketball game ever at T Mobile Arena.(We wanted) to let them know that theyre going into a game where were playing against a very proud opponent that has accomplished a lot, Krzyzewski said. Thats why we watched (the 1991 game). Those games were moments. Moments in history in the game of basketball. So its an honor to come here today.Allen embraced the honor, and rose to the occasion by shooting 75 percent from the field -- including a perfect 7 of 7 in the second half. It was easily the junior guards most complete game of the season, as he appeared to be healthy after battling through leg and toe injuries since mid-November.He was making the athletic plays that he can make, but couldnt make from being injured, Krzyzewski said. That was a big plus for us. The guys responded really well.Once he knocked down the first of his six 3-pointers, three minutes into the game, Allen led an offensive charge that saw four Blue Devils score in double figures.Luke Kennard had 16 points and five rebounds for Duke (10-1), while Jayson Tatum had 13 points and five rebounds, and Amile Jefferson contributed with 10 points and 12 rebounds.Jalen Poyser had 16 points for UNLV.We ran into, if not the best, one of the top (teams). Thats a Final Four team, UNLV first-year coach Marvin Menzies said. I am disappointed we werent able to put our best foot forward. I know I have better players than that. This is one game. It is what it is. We will be fine.The Rebels (5-4) tried to make a couple of runs to challenge Duke, getting as close as 38-26 late in the first half after an 8-0 spurt..dddddddddddd. The Blue Devils answered with their defensive prowess and proved to be too much for an outmatched UNLV team that committed 13 turnovers a little more than 14 minutes into the game, and shot just 34 percent (10 of 29) in the first half.Though UNLV was competitive on the glass, outrebounding the Blue Devils 20-17 in the first half, Duke outscored the Rebels 26-10 in the paint while opening a 42-26 halftime lead.We prepared well, Krzyzewski said. We prepared to try to beat a really good team, and we did.The standing-room only crowd of 19,107 was the highest attendance for a basketball game in Las Vegas since, ironically 1991, during UNLVs back-to-back Final Four run under the late-Jerry Tarkanian. The previous largest crowd was 19,147, at UNLVs home, the Thomas & Mack Center, on Feb. 14, 1991, against Cal Santa Barbara.BIG PICTUREDuke: In his last four games, Amile Jefferson is averaging 17.7 points and 12.2 rebounds, while shooting 69.7 percent (30 of 43) from the floor. Jefferson came into Saturdays game leading the ACC in field goal percentage, converting at a rate of 67 percent for the season. He is a career 63 percent shooter from the field.UNLV: After opening the season 5-2, the Runnin Rebels have lost their last two after allowing an average of 95.5 points per game. UNLV lost at Arizona State 97-73 last Saturday.BET YA DIDNT KNOWWhen Duke and UNLV met in 1990 and `91, Nevada sports books were banned from posting point spreads on teams from the Silver State. That also meant whenever UNLV or Nevada made the NCAA Tournament, future odds on teams winning the title couldnt be posted until either the Runnin Rebels or Wolf Pack were eliminated. Gaming Regulation 22.120(b) went into effect in 2001, and ever since, both schools are included on the regular sports betting rotation. Jay Kornegay, who runs the Westgate Superbook, said he opened Duke as a 15.5-point favorite eight weeks before the game. The Blue Devils closed as a 24.5-point favorite at tip-off on Saturday.UP NEXTDuke: hosts Tennessee State on Dec. 19UNLV: hosts Incarnate Word on Wednesday Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Cheap NFL Black Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Outlet Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Throwback Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
