The A-League signings of Tim Cahill and, potentially, Michael Essien have cost Football Federation Australia almost a million dollars but chief David Gallop is delighted to spend the cash.Theres growing optimism at head office that season 12 of the A-League, which kicks off on October 7, will be a box office success.The arrival of Cahill, who gathers attention like no other A-League player, at Melbourne City is the primary reason.His crossover appeal delights league chiefs, as shown by his recent engagements with the fashion world or AFL club the Western Bulldogs.A further marketing spend - which was non-existent last year - will follow from FFA next month after the AFL and NRL grand finals.It will ask half-committed fans to find a team, pitching squarely at young families to fill seats at A-League matches.Gallop is also delighted at the growing list of high-profile Australian names that have signed up for the season ahead: Brett Holman, James Troisi, Rhys Williams and Bernie Ibini among them.Hed delight in Essien confirming his guest-player move to Melbourne Victory.Weve come to an arrangement with Victory - if they come to an arrangement with him - that were comfortable with, Gallop said.Its understood Essien is overseas considering the deal.If he agrees, Victory will put him through his paces in Melbourne before signing him to ensure his fitness for the A-League campaign.Gallop said Essien brought star power.A player like Essien can add to the halo around Tim because its another big global player that football fans will be excited about, he said.When you add that to the players that are coming back from overseas, then it starts to build the thesis that Ange (Postecoglou) has been espousing loudly lately.He watches a lot of football and he sees a lot of football that is not as good as the A-League.Should Essien sign, the $1 million pot of guest-player funding will be almost dry.But should Cahill and Essiens impact be felt as widely as FFA believes - including on important broadcast rights negotiations - the league could grow the pot next year.(An increase would be) hard for season 12 but were certainly going to look at it again for season 13, he said.Therell be a small amount (left over) but were open to discussions with other clubs.Its obviously pleasing that we allocated an amount of money and were getting to use it. Minnesota Twins Jerseys . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. Kirby Puckett Jersey . After taking two big hits this week -- losing at home and dropping back-to-back games for the first time all season -- Indiana struck back by playing its most complete game of the year. http://www.baseballtwinsprostore.com/twins-miguel-sano-jersey/ . JOHNS, N. Max Kepler Jersey . Newcastle dominated in the early stages but City weathered the storm and then raised its game in extra time. Negredo broke the deadlock from close range after a simple move in the 99th minute before Dzeko took the ball round goalkeeper Tim Krul to seal the victory in the 105th. Byron Buxton Jersey . Badenhop was 2-3 with a 3.47 ERA in 63 relief appearances for Milwaukee this season. He is 18-20 in his career with three saves and a 3. CHICAGO -- Chris Sale raced out as the majors first 14-game winner and was the AL starter in the All-Star game. Then the White Sox ace hit a rut and drew attention not for his pitching, but his jersey-shredding tirade.After a masterful eight scoreless innings that produced his first victory in 49 days, Sale acknowledged the importance of what he called getting over the hump.Sale allowed three hits and threw a season-high 120 pitches, Jose Abreu homered and Chicago beat the Oakland Athletics 6-2 on Saturday night.My last few times out I havent been as good as Ive wanted to be or as good as Ive needed to be, the lefty said.Sale (15-6) had gone 0-4 in his previous six starts, interrupted by a five-day suspension for slicing up throwback uniforms he didnt want to wear.He looked like his dominant early season self, retiring the last seven batters, five by strikeout, and working in sync with catcher Dioner Navarro.Hes calling two-seams and four-seams on both sides of the plate. Front-door, back-door breaking balls and stuff like that, Sale said.The White Sox scored four runs with two outs, including Abreus solo shot that just cleared the eight-foot wall and Brett Eibners glove in right in the first inning. Melky Cabrera added an RBI double in the second and a run-scoring single in the fourth off Ross Detwiler (1-2).But the White Sox made it interesting late.With baseball, the tying run usually comes on deck. We do it whether its 2-1 or 6-0, manager Robin Ventura said.Oaklands Danny Valencia homered in a two-run ninth off Nate Jones. David Robertson came in with two on and got the final two outs for his 31st save when Chad Pinder, playing in his first major league game, flied deep to center.I thought it was easily getting over (Adam Eatons) head, As manager Bob Melvin said. From the sound of it and I know his power, you felt like it had a chance to be a home run.Detwiler allowed six runs and 10 hits in four innings in his third start for the banged-up As, who have dropped six of seven.Carlos Sanchez and Tim Anderson added two-out RBI singles for the White Soox a night after they were held to two singles.ddddddddddddThe White Sox snapped a two-game skid and won for the fourth time in 14 games.Abreu, who has hit safely in 15 of 17 games, also doubled and scored in the third and walked in the fourth.Sale got Khris Davis to hit into a double play with two on in the first. Sale walked three but got stronger as the game went on. He retired 15 of the last 16 batters and hit 96 mph while striking out the side in the seventh. He struck out eight and lowered his ERA to 3.15.Theres a lot of movement on the baseball and his breaking ball does two different things depending on which side of the plate he throws it, Melvin said. Even if you guess right, theres so much movement on it, its tough to square up.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: RHP Jesse Hahn (shoulder) was supposed to come off the disabled list and start Sunday, but he suffered what he called minor discomfort in a bullpen session. Hell have at least another rehab game, but Im not sure when, Melvin said. ... DH Billy Butler, a .378 career hitter against Sale, was out with a stomach illness.White Sox: 2B Tyler Saladino (back) sat out a second straight game. He could play. Its just better that he gets a little time off, Ventura said. ... OF Avisail Garcia (knee) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte. ...
