Lattimore also returned after sitting

GLENDALE, Ariz. Brayden McNabb Golden Knights Jersey . -- It wouldnt bother Zack Greinke if he didnt have to travel for the Los Angeles Dodgers opener against Arizona in Australia. "I would say there is absolutely zero excitement about it," Greinke was quoted as saying in a story by ESPNLosAngeles.com last weekend. "There just isnt any excitement to it. I cant think of one reason to be excited for it." The Sydney Morning Herald reported that organizers of the series at the Sydney Cricket Ground on March 22-23 demanded an explanation from the Dodgers and Major League Baseball. Officials from the club and MLB assured them Monday that Greinke was speaking for only himself and not the entire team, according to the newspaper. Greinke hasnt talked to other media about the comments. He told ESPNLosAngeles he understood the reason for the trip. "Its a baseball thing," he was quoted as saying. "Its an ownership thing, spreading stuff around. Thats what its for, and its for the greater good of baseball." Dodgers President Stan Kasten said Greinkes comments were rooted in his detailed approach to spring training and his meticulous adherence to routine. Both habits, Kasten said, make him a good pitcher and great teammate. Greinkes teammates say they are looking forward to the trip. "Itll be fun to see what Sydney has to offer," first baseman Adrian Gonzalez said. The trip is scheduled to start with a flight of about 16 hours from Phoenix after an exhibition against Colorado on March 16. The Dodgers are scheduled to return to Los Angeles on March 23 and play three exhibition games against the Los Angeles Angels before playing in MLBs North American opener at San Diego on March 30. "Its a long trip for us," said projected starter Dan Haren, who has a dressing stall next to Greinkes in the Dodgers spring training clubhouse. "But we have to think of the game. The actual trip will be a lot to handle, especially for the starting pitchers." Arizona and the Dodgers opened their training camps about a week before the other 28 big league clubs. "This is not a normal spring for us," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday. Because of the trip, the Dodgers are scheduled for about half of their usual total of spring training games. And they may alter their rotation. While two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw and Greinke are their top two starters, Mattingly might not want them to get that many innings early with starts in both Australia and San Diego. Kershaw in theory could line up to start the season opener, the North American opener and the Dodgers home opener against San Francisco on April 4. Mattingly said he wont start Kershaw in all three. "Ill pitch when they tell me to," said Kershaw, who is scheduled to start Wednesdays exhibition opener against Arizona in Scottsdale. Mattingly said 10 days ago he will monitor the workload of Kershaw, who agreed last month to a $215 million, seven-year contract, the largest deal for a pitcher. Kershaw pitched a career-high 259 1-3 innings last season, including the playoffs Mattingly does say Josh Beckett wont make the trip. Beckett is fighting to re-claim his spot in the starting rotation after surgery in July to alleviate a nerve problem that affected his right hand. He had a rib and muscle tissue removed. "Im hoping were going to feel a sense of urgency, make sure our minds are right," Mattingly said. "Its not like were starting tomorrow and we have 37 spring games to play. "Weve got 19 games and then a game that counts."

Freddie Roach said if the Rios fight "does not go well, we will seriously talk about his retirement," but that Pacquiao was training as well as ever for the Nov.GREEN BAY, Wis. - With four NFC North titles and a Super Bowl victory in the past decade, Ted Thompson has had quite a run as Packers general manager. Thompson sees no reason to stop now, even as retirement age nears. The team announced after practice Wednesday the signing of Thompson to a multiyear contract extension. "The more you think about it, the more you think how nuts are you that youd walk away from something like this," Thompson said. "To get a chance to continue to do that after you put all the chips on the table, theres very little choice there. I want to be here." Terms of the deal were not announced. Thompson didnt comment on the specifics, either. "No. Im not a very specific guy," he said when asked if could be more specific about his contract, drawing laughs from reporters. Extending coach Mike McCarthys contract appears to be the next decision. Both the general manager and coach last signed extensions in 2011, within about a month after the Packers won the Super Bowl. "Big priority. Its been the plan the whole time," Thompson said about an extension for McCarthy. "The way the organization is set up ... its the way its always been done here. The general manager kind of gets put away and then you do the head coach." Thompson, 61, took over in 2005; McCarthy was hired in January 2006. "We anticipate each others thoughts often, which might drive both of us crazy sometimes, but I think its working well and has worked well," Thompson said. Thompson missed the NFL meetings in March for a personal matter. He appeared energized last week in addressing the annual Packers shareholders meeting. He might make a few more short trips home to go see family in his home state of Texas, though Thompson had no plans to delegate authority. He professed a continued love for scouting. Thompson doesnt have a timeline for how much longer he wants to work. "His outstanding work has been the key factor in the success that weve enjoyed in reccent years," team president Mark Murphy. Jon Merrill Jersey. Thompsons deal is the second high-profile extension announced by the club in the opening week of camp, following the deal signed by top receiver Jordy Nelson on Saturday. They are among the highlights of what has been a smooth start to camp so far — though both McCarthy and Thompson bristled slightly when asked about the lack of distractions. "Thats me knocking on wood because you said something like that, jinxing it," said Thompson after knocking on the podium. "You never talk about your good fortunes." Also: IN AND OUT: Starting safety Morgan Burnett sat out some of practice Wednesday with what McCarthy called a "tweaked" ankle, though the injury didnt appear serious. Burnett remained on the sideline while Micah Hyde and first-round draft pick Ha Ha Clinton-Dix got a few looks with the first team as the safety duo in red zone drills. Linebacker-defensive end Mike Neal practiced for the first time after watching the first few days with an abdominal injury. Inside linebacker Jamari Lattimore also returned after sitting out a few days because of illness. Guard T.J. Lang (shoulder) took part in position drills. IN THE HOUSE: McCarthy singled out fourth-year cornerback Davon Houses start to camp. He is part of what is looking like a deep position group in the secondary, especially with Casey Hayward at full speed from a hamstring injury that limited him last season. Sam Shields and Tramon Williams are the starting corners. RED ZONE: Nelson caught a couple of touchdowns during two-minute drill practice, including one from a scrambling Aaron Rodgers around the right edge that had the pass rushing Julius Peppers yell out in frustration. "The biggest thing when you get out there in two minutes is that youre a little ahead of the game because weve been going no-huddle since Day 1, so a lot the mechanics" carry over, McCarthy said.
