Giants manager Bruce Bochy has removed struggling Santiago Casilla as the teams closer, saying that Hunter Strickland and Derek Law will be in line for save opportunities as San Francisco enters a crucial series against the rival Dodgers.Bochy announced his bullpen shakeup one day after Casilla recorded his ninth blown save of the season -- tied for most in the majors -- in Saturdays 3-2 loss to the Cardinals.Bochy declined to appoint either Strickland or Law as a designated closer, but acknowledged that the Giants ninth-inning situation needed to be changed.Its time to tweak it a little bit, Bochy told reporters before Sundays game. Im not saying Law is the closer, but Strickland and Law will be more in the mix in the ninth.San Francisco (79-70) did not face a save situation in Sundays 3-0 loss to St. Louis (78-71), which moved one game behind the Giants for the National Leagues second wild card. The Giants enter Mondays series opener in Los Angeles five games behind the first-place Dodgers (84-65) in the NL West.The hard-throwing Strickland has a 3.24 ERA and three saves in 68 appearances this season. Law, a 26-year-old rookie, has a 1.90 ERA and one save in 55 games.Casilla, 36, has served as the Giants primary closer since midway through the 2014 season and has converted 31-of-40 save opportunities this season. His nine blown saves are tied with White Sox right-hander Nate Jones for most in the majors. Its also the most blown saves by a Giants reliever since Robb Nenn had nine in 1999.Im having bad luck, Casilla said Saturday. I was looking for a double play, but we lose the game. I try to do my best. Im not going to be sad or kill myself. Its a game.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report. Authentic Cubs Jerseys . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. Womens Cubs Jerseys .ca. Hey Kerry, big fan of yours, just finished reading your book. I think that we all saw the Canucks/Flames line brawl just after puck drop. It was obvious that something was about to happen, even to the referees because the fourth lines were on to start. http://www.cheapcubsjerseyschina.com/ . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Youth Cubs Jerseys . Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short. Cubs Jerseys From China . -- New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis is retiring after a 16-year career to become the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy. Are we sure this guy is even a rookie, Riot Games? All right, well, if hes on the list of eligible candidates for the award, I guess we have a winner!When Bora YellOwStaR Kim left Team SoloMid last offseason to return to his old club Fnatic in Europe, there was a definite impact on the seven-time North American League of Legends Championship Series finalists. TSM had lost its last two finals to longtime rival Counter Logic Gaming, and then YellOwStaR, one of the best supports the game had ever seen, decided to depart instead of sticking it out for another split. With a majority of the bigger support names already signed to yearlong deals, the pool of available support talent left a lot to be desired.Who could live up to YellOwStaRs legacy? Promising young talent Lee IgNar Dong-geun from South Korea? Netherlands Glenn Hybrid Doornenbal, perhaps?When the dust settled, TSM picked an unsexy choice, Vincent Biofrost Wang. Not an import. Not an unknown player out of nowhere. Biofrost, for all intents and purposes, was a solid minor league player who had bounced around different teams in the Challenger scene before finally getting his chance with TSM.Although he had good experience, the new teammate was a steep drop-off from a support player who had gone to every previous World Championship.YellOwStaR was, well, a star. Biofrost was seemingly putting on shoes five sizes too big for him.As the heat picks up in Southern California with the beginning of August, we now know the truth: You could bring Biofrost the shoes of Shaquille ONeal and theyd still fit him.Beyond his stellar play and partnership with my MVP choice, Yiliang Doublelift Peng, its Biofrosts demeanor that separates him from noteworthy rookies before him. We saw the maniacal play of future MVP winner Lee Rush Yoon-jae when he was a newcomer, but the South Korean jungler was unrefined in his first split. Usually when an elite rookie makes his appearance known, hes a strong player in most categories but lacks in certain areas. Hes either too aggressive or hes too passive. It generally takes upward of a year for a rookie to finally start finding a balance between the two and become an all-around player.Biofrost is already at that point after just a single split in the NA LCS. From his interviews to his movements in-game, it doesnt feel like this is Biofrosts first season. If you covered up his ID during games while hes on his trademark Bard, youd think you were watching one of the better, more experienced supports in League of Legends Champions Korea. There have been times when he has faltered, and it hasnt affected him in the slightest. He doesnt shy away from making a big play even after failing the first time, and Doublelift, the best AD carry North America has ever produced, shows enough confidence in the rookie to follow his lead at times.ddddddddddddIts not only that Biofrost is a great player, which he most certainly is, but its also how he plays the game that makes him one of the best Rookie of the Split winners weve seen in the history of the LCS. Its easy to say his success solely comes from playing alongside an exceptionally talented core of players on TSM, but you dont make it to a 17-1 record in a best-of-three format with a substandard player in the support role.If the same issues that plagued TSM last year were still prevalent on the team, Immortals would have finished first in North America and TSM would have settled around the same area where Team Liquid and CLG currently sit heading into the playoffs. On a team with four mature players who knew what it takes to make it through an LCS season, Biofrost didnt feel out of place once; sometimes he actually became the factor that won TSM games through his pivotal Bard ultimates or Karma sped-up engages.Playoffs could be an entirely different story. With the heat on him to win a championship and the matches transitioning into a best-of-five, we might see Biofrost sweat, or maybe even slip up for the first time. Until that happens, though, Biofrost is as cool as you can be in the bottom lane, ready to prove that ice truly flows in his veins.Honorable mentionsRami Inori Charagh: In a world where visa issues hadnt plagued Phoenix1, Inori might have won this award. Its sad that a Rookie of the Split runoff for the ages was nullified due to Inori only being able to play a little over half the season. Inoris play since joining P1 has been phenomenal, and he was the ace of a team that would have been a playoff side if it had had its starting five from the beginning of the split.Jovani Fabbbyyy Guillen: Fabbbyyy had a good split as a rookie for playoff squad Team Liquid, but he unluckily was a rookie in a season where Biofrost and Inori stole all the Rookie of the Split headlines. Well see if he can have a breakout performance in the quarterfinals for TL as they go up against back-to-back defending champions CLG.Jeon Ray Ji-won: Glass cannon is the best way to describe Apexs carry-oriented rookie top laner. It looked like Ray would be a top contender for Rookie of the Split in the early weeks of the season, but his kills shrank and his deaths skyrocketed as the season went along.Derek Zig Shao: Maybe lagging a bit behind the other four rookies mentioned, Zig had a solid season after his almost-five-year odyssey to make it into the NA LCS. If Phoenix1 can requalify for the LCS, Zig should have a better season next time in a full split alongside Inori.
