Toronto, ON - For the second time in five days, the Toronto Argonauts will take to the field as they play host to the BC Lions this evening. Rusney Castillo Jersey . You can catch all of the action live on TSN and TSN 1050 at 7:30 pm et/4:30 pm pt. The Argos, who were idle last week, have made up for lost time, as they opened Week 8 play in the CFL this past Tuesday by upending the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, 38-21. In the process, the Boatmen avenged an earlier loss to Winnipeg and moved to 3-4 overall, increasing their lead atop the Eastern Division standings. Despite having a better overall record at 4-3, British Columbia sits in last place in the Western Division standings. However, the Lions enter with a bit of momentum, as they have posted consecutive wins over Calgary (25-24) and most recently, Hamilton (36-29). The Argonauts scored all of their points in bunches on Tuesday, with 21 points in the second quarter and 17 unanswered points in the fourth frame to blow by the Blue Bombers. Strong offensive play is nothing new for Toronto, which leads the league in total offense at a hefty 405.9 yards per game. Toronto quarterback Ricky Ray kept that going and had a huge game against Winnipeg, torching the Blue Bombers for 297 yards and four TD passes, on 26- of-33 passing on Tuesday. Ray spread the ball around to 10 different receivers, four of which hauled in the TD strikes. Running back Curtis Steele provided some balance with his work out of the backfield, amassing 92 yards and one major on just 10 carries, while adding another score via the pass. Defensively, the team kept the pressure on Winnipeg, recording five sacks. Defensive back Dwight Anderson had a big game, leading the team with eight total tackles, including a pair of sacks. In a game that featured several momentum swings, it was the Lions that prevailed last week, holding on for a 36-29 shootout win over Hamilton at BC Place. British Columbia, which trailed 17-3 at the half, rallied, thanks to the play of quarterback Kevin Glenn, who went 22-of-36 passing, for 407 yards and one TD, while rushing for another score. For his efforts, Glenn was named the Offensive Player of the Week. The Lions had two receivers eclipse the 100-yard mark in the win, with Shawn Gore hauling in five balls, for 117 yards and Emmanuel Arceneaux grabbing four balls, for 103 yards and a score. Defensive back Ronnie Yell led the team with eight tackles in the win, while half of defensive tackle Alex Bazzies four stops where sacks. In his first season in the league, Bazzie has already recorded six sacks, ranking second in the league in that category. On the season, BC ranks second in the league in total defense, yielding just 316.4 yards per game and has been particularly stout against the pass, allowing a mere 206.7 yards per outing (second in the CFL). J. D. Martinez Red Sox Jersey . Garcia had eight birdies overall to go with a lone bogey on the fourth to move to an 18-under total of 198 at the Asian Tour event. "I was able to hit some really nice shots and then was able to roll two or three really good putts in and it was nice to be able to finish birdie, birdie on this difficult finishing stretch," Garcia said. Johnny Pesky Red Sox Jersey . The deal will pay Hainsey $3 million for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons and $2.5 million in 2016-17. http://www.officialredsoxfanstore.com/authentic-jd-martinez-red-sox-jersey/ . J.J. Hardy drove in a run for the Orioles, who bounced back from an 8-4 loss in the series opener on Friday. Fresh off the 15-day disabled list, Derrek Lee went 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Jake Arrieta (7-3) gave up three runs on five hits over six innings to pick up the win."I dont believe in building through free agency." Argos general manager Jim Barker uttered those words during an interview with TSN 1050 radio just prior to the CFLs annual free agent frenzy. If you turn back the clock Barker is true to his word. Last February the only free agent the team added was LB/DE James Yurichuk. He proved his worth as a situational player who excelled on special teams, but it was far from being the kind of deal that captured the attention of more than just the die-hard fan. This may be a similar season in terms of who the Argos bring in according to Barker. "I do believe in plugging holes (via free agency) and trying to find that right guy thats going to bring our club up a notch," Barker noted. The bigger question may be what the club does about three specific players who may opt to not return to Toronto, Pat Watkins, Robert McCune and Swayze Waters. Watkins, a league all-star at cornerback last year, would be the toughest to replace. Hes also been the hardest to find. "Honestly we have not been able to get in touch with him. He doesnt return our calls, which is a bad thing," chuckled Barker. "If a guy doesnt want to be in Toronto then god bless him and good luck. Were persistent. Were sending players to his house, doing all those kind of things to try and run him down. But Pat is one of those guys who is very elusive. Its not a shocking development for us. Its possible hes just involved in something and not worried about it." Swayze Waters led the CFL in punting average and was virtually automatic on field goals down the stretch and is looking at returning to the states. "Hes tried out for a couple of NFL teams," Barker told TSN 1050. "Every indication hes given us is that hes coming back to Toronto if he comes back to the CFL." The Argos are preparing for the scenario where Waters makes an NFL team, and last week signed LSU grad Josh Jasper. Robert McCunes worth was evident in the teams loss to Hamilton in the Eastern Final. The middle linebacker, who was third in the league with 99 tackles, missed the game with a shoulder injury. It seemed every time Henry Burris scrambled, he ran right where McCune would have been. "With Robert were kind of waiting," said the GM. "Obviously Robert had a great year for us. Hes 34 years old. Thats a decision that were in the process of making, to which direction were going to go with him." If the Argos and McCune were to part ways it would leave the team down a couple of middle linebackers, as Jason Pottinger was selected by Ottawa in the expansion draft. Barker has a replacement all picked out, someone who may not be thought of as an MLB. "Shane Horton. Thats his natural position." Barker said, tthen may have tipped his hand about McCunes future. Babe Ruth Red Sox Jersey. "(Horton) played out of position playing rush end last year. Hes going to be a very, very good middle linebacker." Barker added he feels that at 215 pounds, Horton is big enough to play in the middle. Herve Tonye-Tonye, a non-import who just completed his rookie season, can also play the inside. As far as non-imports are concerned, it may be an interesting free agency period because of the recent expansion draft. Stocking the Ottawa RedBlacks took its toll on the existing teams rosters, so there will be a desire to restock the shelves with fresh talent. Barker commented on a few of the Canadians on the Argos that are on the verge of free agency. Chad Rempel, long snapper: "Chad worked out with Tampa Bay (NFL). He wants to give that a chance until thats exhausted." Zander Robinson, tight end/fullback: "Zander loves being in Toronto and loves how weve used him in the offence. Hes a valuable guy for us, but hes also exploring NFL opportunities." David Lee, defensive end: "Is a guy that had a real good year for us. I think he wants to try the free-agent market. Its his first time going through that and I think hes a guy that wants to go out and see what the market is all about." Mike Bradwell, wide receiver. "I think were really close. He loves being in Toronto." Coaching Moves/Tryout Camp: The Boatmen lost several coaches in the off-season. Special teams coordinator Mike OShea left to become the head coach of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, while defensive coordinator Chris Jones took over the head coaching job with the Edmonton Eskimos. Jones also took a handful of assistant coaches with him. Barker says there will be announcement about the new-look staff in the immediate future. "Were excited about what our staff is going to look like" said Barker. "Scott (head coach Milanovich) will be announcing those (soon). Hes come up with a couple of guys who have great CFL experience.” Barker spoke to TSN 1050 from Atlanta, where the Argos were hosting a tryout camp. Over 60 players were in attendance and Barker was happy with what they found. "There were two players that were going to attempt to sign" said the GM. "Were pretty excited." If those players head north in June theyll attend training camp. Where that will be is still anyones guess. The team will not be back at the University of Torontos Erindale campus and at present are homeless. Where are they heading? "Those are questions for (Executive Chairman and CEO) Chris Rudge. "I know that theres some different things going on with York University," said Barker. "Other than that, Im not privy to those things.” ' ' '
