New York, NY ( - Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera was named the 2013 Player of the Year as voted by the Major League Baseball Players Association. Cabrera also captured the honor last year and was again selected as the American Leagues Outstanding Player. He won the American League Triple Crown last year and this season again led the league in batting at .348 while hitting 44 homers with 137 runs batted in. Only Baltimores Chris Davis had more homers and RBI. The National Leagues Outstanding Player was Pittsburghs Andrew McCutchen for the second straight season. He helped the Pirates to the playoffs for the first time since 1992 after batting .317 with 21 homers and 84 RBI. The top pitchers were Detroits Max Scherzer and Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers. Scherzer was the lone pitcher to reach 20 wins this season, finishing 21-3 with a 2.90 ERA and 240 strikeouts, while Kershaw led the majors with a 1.83 ERA and was 16-9 with 232 strikeouts. Tampa Bay outfielder Wil Myers was named the top rookie in the American League and Miami pitcher Jose Fernandez picked up the National League honor. Myers hit .293 with 13 homers and 53 RBI, while Fernandez was 12-6 with a 2.19 ERA. Reilly Smith Jersey . Tyrell appeared in seven games with the Lightning this year, he had no points in those appearances. The 24-year-old has seven goals and 17 assists in 132 career NHL games, all coming with the Lightning. He was selected in the second round, 47th overall, of the 2007 draft. Vadim Shipachyov Jersey . With one week left in the regular season, Cornish - voted The Toughest Player To Bring Down - is a leading candidate for the CFLs Most Outstanding Player award. He has rushed for 1,799 yards and could break Willie Burdens club record for rushing yards in a single season with a 98-yard performance against the B. The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side. Weber had a goal and two assists, and Roman Josi scored the shootout winner to lift the Predators to a 4-3 win over the Flyers on Thursday night. Tomas Nosek Jersey .J. -- The NHL reduced its penalty against the New Jersey Devils on Thursday for signing Ilya Kovalchuk in 2010. Teemu Pulkkinen Jersey . Beanballs were the theme Friday night as the Red Sox and Rays had another AL East rumble, with Boston earning a 3-2 victory on A.Joe Hart is not worried by the lack of numbers in Englands defence ahead of Euro 2016 and feels the unit boasts plenty of quality. Roy Hodgson opted to take seven defenders - only three of them specialist centre-halves - to France, coming in for criticism by pundits and former internationals.But Hart is sure the defensive players Hodgson has picked, plus midfielder Eric Dier if needed, will be enough to sustain a long run in the tournament. England fly to Marseille on Friday ahead of their opening game against Russia on Saturday evening, and Hart says the defensive group working hard in training is ready for action.I feel its very balanced and very comfortable, the Manchester City goalkeeper said when asked about the criticism of Hodgsons selection. Chris Smalling is one of only three specialist centre-backs in Englands 23-man squad Maybe the numbers arent there, but the seven potential defenders picked that are in the squad, and obviously with Eric as well able to slot in, are really high-level players.With England, you usually only get a couple of days together, but we are now here for a couple of weeks and we feel really together and comfortable with each other - we definitely do. Hart believes Wayne Rooney is playing a key role within the England squad for Euro 2016. There is a good link between the midfield and the defence and we feel strong.I dont really know what criticism you are referring to, but thats always going to happen. Someones going to get scrutinised, something is going to be scrutinised. What formation will Roy Hodgson plump for? The important thing to me is that the coaching staff and players, we believe in the players that are here.dddddddddddd We feel confident and comfortable as a unit and we are ready.England have been preparing for the Russians for around three weeks and Hart says there is clarity within the squad about their opening task even though Hodgson has a number of possible formations to choose from, and is keeping his cards close to his chest. Hart thinks England have to start being on the right end of key moments if theyre to make it to the later stages of Euro 2016 We are very clear of all the different ways that we play, he added. When we want to bring them in and when we dont want to bring them in.Under small instruction from Roy, we can chop and change in a game. We work together as a unit and we are definitely ready for Saturday. Englands players have been working with renowned sports psychologist Steve Peters And Hart has been enjoying working alongside sports psychiatrist Dr Steve Peters, who is renowned for his work with Olympic athletes.He is a good addition, a fresh addition and he is there if you need him, Hart said.I am open, but it is more of a group thing. We sit down as a group, work together and with all the meetings we do, try to get the best out of each other.
