A lengthy vacation during the NHLs Olympic break next month isnt sitting well with Bobby Ryan. David Andrews Jersey . The Ottawa Senators forward didnt hold back his feelings on Thursday after being left off the U.S. Olympic mens hockey team for the Games in Sochi, calling out director of player personnel Brian Burke and USA Hockey for the way the process was publicized. "It was kinda gutless," Ryan told a scrum of reporters at the teams morning skate. "I almost feel degraded when it comes out like that. It is what it is - thats their decision and thats how they feel about me." What made things worse for the young winger was a feature posted Wednesday by ESPN.coms Scott Burnside chronicling a five-month process in which Burke, Team USA GM David Poile and the rest of the selection committee deliberated Ryans status along with other. "Hes (Ryan) a passive guy," Burke was quoted saying in the feature. "He is not intense. That word is not in his vocabulary. Its never going to be in his vocabulary. He cant spell intense." But Burke also praised Ryans ability as a game-breaker, saying that while candidates Max Pacioretty and Brandon Saad were both better 60-minute players, "neither can do what Bobby can do." The feature added that another selection committee member called Ryan a sleepy skater and when Poile asked his group to raise their hand if they were worried about Ryan, a lot of members did just that. "They were direct quotes," said Ryan. "Its unfortunate they feel that way. Theyve got to form a team. I guess to a certain degree you have to respect it. You dont have to agree with it, right? I certainly dont. They could have just cut me." He added that Burke tried contact him on Wednesday, but Ryan hasnt called back. The 26-year-old has 18 goals and 36 points in 42 games with the Senators this season. Malcom Brown Jersey . -- James Jones wouldnt be denied a Lambeau leap after a long touchdown catch.

LOUIS - Allen Craig was sore a day after his base-running adventure to end Game 3 of the World Series, but the Cardinals expect him to be available.(Sports Network) - Brandon Morrow will try to continue his winning ways tonight when the Toronto Blue Jays get an interleague visit from the high-flying Washington Nationals. Toronto halted a three-game slide in a big way on Sunday, erasing an early four-run deficit with a 12-4 win. Colby Rasmus highlighted the Blue Jays season-high 18-hit attack with a 3-for-6 effort at the plate. Rasmus drilled a solo homer, had three RBI and scored twice. Toronto had been held to just eight hits over its three-game slide. "Hitting always has been (contagious)," noted Torontos Kelly Johnson, who contributed an RBI triple in the win. "You just have to bring it everyday and be as consistent as possible with that." Brett Lawrie had a two-run homer and drove in three runs, while Edwin Encarnacion added an RBI double among his three hits in the triumph. Morrow, who faces the Nationals for the first time, held the White Sox to a pair of hits and two walks while striking out five on Wednesday. The 27-year-old moved to 7-3 with a 2.90 ERA in 12 outings this season and has only given up three earned runs in his seven wins. Morrow said executing his fastball is key to his success. "When I have fastball command down to both sides of the plate, thats when Ive been at my best," said Morrow. "I had that tonight." The Nationals have won just two of their nine trips to Toronto since moving from Montreal to Washington prior to the 2005 season, dropping two of three during their last trip there in 2007. The Blue Jays have won nine of 15 overall since the start of the 2005 season. Thiss doesnt figure to be the same Nationals team of years past as the current edition of the club comes into this set with a two-game lead for first place in the National League East and 12 games over . Drew Bledsoe Jersey. 00 (32-23) for the first time since July of 2005. Washington visited Boston for three games this past weekend and picked up three victories, finishing off the sweep with Sundays 4-3 triumph thanks to a late, clutch hit from Roger Bernadina. Pinch-hitter Bryce Harper, who did not start due to lower back tightness, drew a walk in the top of the ninth and later raced home with the go-ahead run on Bernadinas double down the right-field line. Tyler Clippard then worked around a one-out walk in the bottom of the ninth for his eighth save of the year and Washingtons fifth victory in six games. Getting the call in this opener will be Edwin Jackson, who won for the first time in nine starts in the Nationals victory over the Mets on Wednesday. Jackson snapped a two-game and three-decision slide, picking up his first win since April 14 when he held New York to three runs -- two earned -- on three hits and four walks over seven innings while striking out six. Despite allowing three earned runs or less for the ninth time in 11 starts, he is just 2-3 with a 3.11 earned run average this year. "He was exceptional for us tonight," said Washington manager Davey Johnson about Jackson. "Seven strong innings and he probably had a little bit left in the tank." The 28-year-old righty has faced the Blue Jays 14 times in his career, including 13 starts, and is 3-3 with a 4.34 ERA.
