TORONTO -- MVP: Most Versatile Pitcher.The humble workhorse in a wipeout bullpen, Andrew Miller was selected AL Championship Series MVP after his latest spotless outing sent the Cleveland Indians to their first pennant since 1997.Miller tossed 2 2/3 innings in a 3-0 victory Wednesday over Toronto, capping a five-game series in which the lanky left-hander overpowered the dangerous Blue Jays.He had one strikeout in Game 5 and finished the series with 14 -- an ALCS record for a reliever. Miller gave up three hits in 7 2/3 shutout innings against Toronto and earned a four-out save in Game 3.At this point of the year, you just find a way. Thats all that matters. Its about winning, Miller said . I would have given up 100 runs if we won 101-100. Thats all that matters is were going to the World Series, and thats a special experience and I cant wait.After capturing their sixth pennant, thanks in large part to Miller, the Indians are four wins from their first championship since 1948.Miller was acquired from the New York Yankees for a package of prospects in a July 31 trade, and Cleveland had an interesting idea of how to feature him. Rather than restricting him to a closer role or using him only in the eighth inning, the Indians have been flexible with Miller -- especially in the postseason.Its so fun to be a part of this team, he said. I really enjoyed my time with the Yankees. Its tough when you leave a comfort zone and a place that you like and people that you like. But I knew I was coming to a team that had won a lot and had expectations to win more.Now, whenever the Indians have a lead in the middle innings, the 6-foot-7 lefty begins looming large in the bullpen -- and Miller time is near.With that nasty slider and a sizzling fastball he spots to both sides of the plate, he struck out 21 of 41 batters during the AL playoffs. He has allowed a mere six hits over 20 scoreless innings in his postseason career.Drafted sixth overall by Detroit out of North Carolina in 2006, Miller was part of the blockbuster deal that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers after the 2007 season. Miller made 66 starts in the majors but never fulfilled his promise until switching to the bullpen. His first full season as a reliever (with Boston in 2012) provided a hint of what was possible.Miller posted a 3.35 ERA in 53 appearances that year, and the following season he dominated hitters with 48 strikeouts in 30 2/3 innings.After stops with Baltimore and the Yankees, Miller ended up in Cleveland, and the Indians had an unorthodox plan for his usage.When they were upstairs in their meetings about the trade talks and they were talking about Andrew, they were actually talking -- and I was in there listening and doing some talking -- just about how he would fit into a bullpen and how you could leverage him, just like we are now, manager Terry Francona said recently. So the thought was alive before we got him. We envisioned using him like we are.There are plenty of other important contributors in the Cleveland bullpen, particularly closer Cody Allen, who had 32 saves during the regular season and hasnt allowed a run in the postseason.In fact, Indians relievers racked up 22 innings in the ALCS -- the same amount as their starters.But its Miller who strikes the most fear in opposing hitters after he whiffed a whopping 14.9 per nine innings this season while going 10-1 with a 1.45 ERA and 12 saves.In the playoff opener against Boston, Miller entered in the fifth inning and pitched into the seventh. That set the tone for an October in which Miller could be available pretty much any time the Indians need him.Miller has tossed 11 2/3 shutout innings in six postseason appearances. Its a workload that might not be sustainable in the regular season, but with off days built into the playoff schedule, this approach has served the Indians well.All that matters are outs. All that matters are wins. It honestly does not matter how we get there, Miller said. And I think top to bottom, this team believes in that.---Follow Noah Trister at www.Twitter.com/noahtrister Cheap Nike Flex Shoes .

Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. http://www.cheapnikeflex.com/ . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. Discount Nike Flex . The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling "puts an end to my dreams of being a top player," the 27-year-old Troicki said in a statement.

Bradwell was scheduled to become a free agent Tuesday. Born and raised in Toronto, Bradwell is entering his sixth CFL season, with all six played for his hometown Argonauts. Perth A-League coach Kenny Lowe admits hes partly to blame for the horror show that has cost Dino Djulbic a spot in the side.Djulbic hasnt played since costing his side a goal in embarrassing fashion in a 4-1 loss a fortnight ago to Sydney FC.The 33-year-old was forced into the unfamiliar right-back role for that game to cover the absence of Socceroo Josh Risdon.Djulbic had played every game this season up until that point, but was dropped the next week after struggling against Sydney.The central defender will again be absent from the match-day squad for Thursday nights away clash with Central Coast.Rhys Williams and Alexander Grant are set to retain their central defensive partnership, with Shane Lowry providing cover on the bench as he builds up his form and fitness following off-season hip surgery.Djulbic faces a fight to win back his spot in the side this season, but Lowe has praised the former Socceroos defender for how he has handled the situation.Hes a professional. He just trains how he normally trains. Hes a top guy, Lowe said on Wednesday.That was probably my fault - not Dinos fault (with what happened against Sydney).At the endd of the day, I chose him to play there.ddddddddddddIn hindsight, I probably made it difficult for him. Its probably me that bears the brunt more than Dino, to be truthful.The Glory enter the match full of confidence following last weeks 3-1 trouncing of Adelaide.Striker Adam Taggart played 15 minutes against Adelaide in his first match back from a calf injury, and was set to earn more game time against the struggling Mariners.The Glory coughed up a 3-0 lead in their 3-3 draw to the Mariners in round one.But Lowe said that result was irrelevant heading into this weeks re-match, joking that he couldnt even remember the score from that first encounter.Fourth-placed Glory have conceded eight goals in three away matches this season, but Lowe says he isnt overly worried about the statistic.Were the second-top scorers. So one thing you can say about us is were entertaining, Lowe said.As long as we score one more goal than these guys this week. Im not bothered if its 7-6 or 9-8. Im not bothered. We just want to win.
