TORONTO -- It appears the writing is officially on the wall for Toronto FC fullback Richard Eckersley. Bob Griese Jersey . There is no problem with his play. Far from it. A product of Manchester Uniteds youth system, the 24-year-old English defender is a quality defender who can push up the flank. An afternoon playing against the hard-nosed redhead will likely leave a mark. But Eckersley is simply too expensive under the confines of the MLS salary cap. His salary was listed at US$390,000 last year and $310,000 this season. The actual number was probably higher, with the club using allocation money to buy it down. In 2014, it will be even bigger. Suffice to say that the current TFC regime did not sign him to the deal. The underachieving MLS team has shed salary this season in a bid to pave the way for new talent. Eckersley is seen as one of the last dominos to fall. On Tuesday, manager Ryan Nelsen offered his bluntest assessment when asked about the fullbacks future with the club. "This is not anything to do with Richard, because Richards a fantastic player. Hes a really good player in this league," said Nelsen. "But if you got Dani Alves (of Barcelona), Glen Johnson (of Liverpool), Ashley Cole (of Chelsea) and put them on $5(00,000), $6(00,000), $700,000 contracts here, you wouldnt do it. It makes absolutely no sense to put a left or a right back on that amount of money because it just destroys your salary cap. "So its not the players fault that theyre on this type of contracts. Its just obviously youve got to balance your salary cap to proportion where you want the most amount of money on the field and where it can have the biggest amount of impact. "Thats why I kind of feel really bad for Richard, because hes kind of in that situation where his agent did a really good job for him -- but probably too good of a job." Nelsen said Eckersleys deal was so big -- second only to designated player Danny Koevermans US$1.66 million on Torontos salary list this season -- that renegotiation was out of the question. Koevermans actual hit against the $2.95-million cap is only $368,750 as a designated player. The fact that Eckersley missed 14 games -- almost 100 days -- earlier this season after injuring his hamstring celebrating teammate Darel Russells tying goal March 6 against FC Dallas must have made Torontos bean-counters grind their teeth. Eckersley has not played the last two games. He missed the Sept. 14 defeat in New York with a knock and sat out last Saturdays home loss to Sporting Kansas City as Nelsen rewarded Mark Bloom ($46,500) with another start. Eckersley said diplomatically Tuesday that he was "happy to share the load." And that Bloom deserved the Kansas City start because he "did brilliant" against New York, he added. "When Im recalled and when he (Nelsen) wants me to play again, Im ready," he said. Its the kind of model citizen he has been at the club. But he knows he is a square peg in a round hole, salary-wise in the MLS. "Fullbacks in this league dont get paid a lot of money. But Im not some ordinary fullback," he said matter-of-factly. "But its the clubs decision. Im happy to go with whatever they decide. My futures in their hands, isnt it." His 72 career TFC games (70 starts) are second only to Stefan Freis 81 (81 starts) among active club players. Frei, another faithful servant of the Reds, is also headed towards the exit sign, his $200,000 contract expiring at the end of the season and his job usurped by Joe Bendik. With Eckersley under contract next season, Toronto (4-15-11) has limited options considering his price tag. The team could come to a settlement with him, but the severance cost would go against the salary cap. And a trade or loan within MLS is unlikely under his current terms. There is also the option of an international transfer. The most likely exit strategy is Toronto using its one permitted off-season buyout. The club can use its own funds to negotiate a settlement, which would not count against the salary cap. An MLS official said such a buyout usually leads to the player exiting the league. Asked if he expects to be back with Toronto next season, Eckersley laughed and said: "I dont know. If you ask me that in a months time, I might give you an answer. "But because theres three, four games to go, Ill just say Im going to keep working for now." Julius Thomas Jersey .5 million, two-year contract that runs through 2015. Venable, the son of former big leaguer Max Venable, will make $4. Jermon Bushrod Jersey . The Brazilian-born strikers brace drew him level with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo as the leagues leading scorers with 17 goals apiece through 16 rounds. "The important thing is to help the team win, not the goals," Diego Costa said. After a first half dominated by defence, Atletico pressed Valencia into its area and Diego Costa did the rest. http://www.shopdolphinsauthenticnfl.com/Youth-Chase-Allen-Elite-Jersey/ . The Jays responded to the three-spot Detroit placed on Casey Janssen the evening before with an attack on the Tigers Achilles Heel, its bullpen, tying the game in the ninth and winning the game in the 10th. The result absolved Marcus Stroman, brilliant once again, of a tough luck loss while at the same time robbing Max Scherzer, brilliant once again, of a deserved win.The Chicago Bulls will try to knot up their series with the Washington Wizards Tuesday night as the two sides meet again at the United Center. The Wizards upset the Bulls, 102-93, Sunday night in Chicago. "After yesterdays practice I knew these guys were focused like they havent been before and thats a good sign," said Wizards coach Randy Wittman. Nene scored 24 points and the Wizards had big contributions from all five starters in their first playoff game in six years. They overcame a 13-point deficit and claimed home-court advantage from their much more-experienced foes. "Its always a game of runs," said Wittman. "I always tell our guys, Stay in the moment. When we got down 13, we stayed in the moment." The Bulls remained in the lead following a 14-4 run in second quarter until Trevor Arizas free throws with 4:17 remaining put the Wizards in front. The shots were part of a 14-3 run that gave the Wizards an eight-point lead with 25 seconds left. Nene rattled in a shot during the spurt but the biggest points might have been Marcin Gortats baseline jumper after he rebounded a John Wall miss, pushing Washingtons lead to six with 34.2 seconds remaining. Gortat totaled 15 points and 13 rebounds, Ariza had 18 points, Wall scored 16 with six reebounds and six assists and Bradley Beal had 13 points and seven assists for fifth-seeded Washington. Kenny Stills Jersey. The Wizards also got a huge boost from veteran Andre Miller. He scored 10 off the bench and played brilliantly in the fourth quarter. The fourth-seeded Bulls, in the playoffs for the second straight year without injured star Derrick Rose, were led by 16 points apiece from Kirk Hinrich and D.J. Augustin. Joakim Noah added 10 points and 10 rebounds and Jimmy Butler scored 15. "Our defense wasnt very good; 102 points, 48 percent (shooting), outrebounded. Its hard to win like that," said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. Maybe the Bulls can garner some momentum from Mondays announcement that Noah was named Defensive Player of the Year. "This award is a team award," he said after accepting the trophy. The Bulls led the NBA in opponents scoring and finished second in opponents field-goal percentage. The defense should improve, but the offense remains a concern for the Bulls. Chicago was held to 39 points in the second half, where a pure scorer, which the Bulls dont have, could take over a game. Chicago also shot 42 percent from the field and 25 percent from long range. Washington will host Game 3 on Friday night.
