trio that has won three championships
The Winnipeg Goldeyes signed right-handed pitcher Jason Jarvis to a contract for the 2014 season on Wednesday. Jarvis, 26, was acquired from the Sioux City Explorers late last season for three players to be named later, who turned out to be left-handed pitcher Edgar Osuna and infielders Kevin Moesquit and Nate Samson. In four starts with the Goldeyes, Jarvis went 2-1 with a 2.19 ERA. He threw a complete-game shutout August 22 at St. Paul. Three of his four starts were quality starts. "In the short period of time he spent with us, he was very impressive," said Goldeyes manager Rick Forney. "Hes what you look for in a starting pitcher in indepent baseball. He is a durable innings-eater. He really gave us an opportunity at the end of the season to stay relevant in the playoff race. Although we came up short, hes one of the many pieces I feel that can help us achieve a title in 2014." Overall last season, Jarvis, who makes his off-season home in Sioux City, went 7-11 with a 3.92 ERA in 22 starts with the Goldeyes and Explorers. He tossed three complete games, including a pair of complete-game shutouts. Jarvis was originally drafted by the Los Angeles Angels in the 25th round of the 2006 MLB amateur draft, but elected to attend Arizona State University. After leaving Arizona State early in their 2008 season, he joined the Lincoln Saltdogs, where he went 4-6 with a 2.98 ERA in 23 games. He was then selected by the San Francisco Giants in the 23rd round of the 2008 MLB amateur draft and played the rest of the 2008 season in their system, as well as the 2009 and 2010 campaigns. He joined the Joliet Slammers of the Frontier League to begin the 2011 season before landing in Sioux City midway through that season. In 84 games at the independent level, including 67 starts, Jarvis holds a 24-32 record and 4.22 ERA. Jarvis is the first player to sign a contract with the Goldeyes for the 2014 season.

Authentic Tyler Toffoli Jersey . -- A year ago, Flavia Pennetta was close to retiring from tennis.In a franchise that has no time for spotlights, with a roster that has no interest in headlines, R.C. Buford may be the very embodiment of the all-for-one San Antonio Spurs. For more than two decades he has toiled in the shadows, happy to let the attention fall on coach Gregg Popovich and the team that Buford has played such a pivotal role in assembling. He quietly -- happily -- lives in the back channels and has built a reputation as one of the most respected executives in the NBA. Yet for all his impressive work over the previous 11 years as a general manager and architect of the most enduring success story in modern American sports, Buford had never been honoured by his peers as the leagues executive of the year. Until now. Buford won the award Wednesday, and as is the custom in the Alamo City, did as much as he could to downplay his significant contributions to a team that posted the best record in the NBA. "I think its not why we do what we do," Buford said. "I think its a great honour for the group of people that have been here and have been through here that have built and an ownership group thats allowed a continuity to build a program that were proud of so to be recognized as a program that people respect by your peers, thats rewarding." That Buford had never won the award before while helping to put together a team that won four championships and has posted a staggering 15 straight 50-win seasons has been one of the great mysteries in league annals. Hes helped put the Spurs at the forefront of the international invasion, implemented a system that demands commitment and humility over recognition and individual achievement, and has been partly responsible for so many teams pilfering his staff to run front offices or teams across the league. Yet he may have finally earned the award in his 12th season as GM because of what he didnt do. In the wake of a devastating loss to Miami in the NBA Finals last season, Buford didnt panic. He didnt give up on an aging Manu Ginobili. He didnt let Tiago Splitter get lured away by big money elsewhere. He followed the Spurs creed: Stay the course. Believe in the system. Never give in to outside influence. While other teams chased huge stars and made big splashes, Buford quietly re-signed Ginobili and Splitter and added second-tier free agent Marco Belinelli. The moves werent flashy, but were exactly what the Spurs, who enter Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals on Friday night leadding Portland 1-0, needed to recover from that bitter defeat.dddddddddddd. "Its pretty cool," Popovich said. "Were all excited for him; long overdue. Hes done a great job for a very long time. Were giving him the requisite amount of you-know-what all over the offices. He walks down the halls we hit the walls we hit the sides to make room for him." Buford received nine first-place votes and 58 total points to win the award. Phoenixs Ryan McDonough (47) finished second for his superb job in turning the Suns from an afterthought into a 48-win team that just missed the playoffs. Neil Olshey, who added Robin Lopez, Dorell Wright and Thomas Robinson to bolster the Trail Blazers depth and get them into the playoffs, finished third in the voting with 34 points. Torontos Masai Ujiri and Miamis Pat Riley rounded out the top five. Popovich and Buford have made the Spurs the envy of the league, assembling one of the most uniquely stable systems in professional sports built around Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Ginobili, a trio that has won three championships together and keep coming back for more. "Weve been working with each other for a long time," Popovich said. "We participate in everything. Its been a great relationship in that regard. We share everything its benefited both of us and the organization without a doubt. Just having that ability to communicate and having an owner that allows us to do that." Popovich gets more of the credit for making the Spurs machine go, and thats just fine with Buford. But most around the league, and certainly everyone in San Antonio, recognizes what a big role Buford has played in helping the Spurs avoid the teardowns that almost every franchise has endured since he and Pop took over. "You recognize how difficult that is and how fortunate weve been that an ownership group has allowed us to stay together and have the opportunity to survive through the growing pains," Buford said. "To have a group of players that have wanted to be a part of what this community of San Antonio and what our fans mean to them. To have wanted to stay with an ownership group the sacrifices that theyve made to make this a unique environment and then how theyve handled themselves that presents a platform that other players want to come join. "Again, were not in this to win an award. Were in this to try to win a championship. Thats the reward were all hoping for."
