NEW YORK -- For the first time in nearly 13 years, the New York Yankees will play a game without Alex Rodriguez somewhere in their organization. Dion Waiters Jersey .A day after Rodriguezs run in New York concluded, the Yankees continue a three-game series with the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday afternoon.Im going to miss him, Im going to miss this guy, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. This guy did a lot of great things.While throngs of media including CNN descended upon Yankee Stadium for Rodriguezs exit from the Yankees, the team will have another noteworthy event Saturday. The Yankees are honoring the 1996 championship team, which began the dynasty they were never able to recapture during the 41-year-olds eventful stint in New York.Rodriguez played with a few of those members in Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte in New York as well as Jeff Nelson and Tino Martinez in Seattle.Once the ceremonies end, the Yankees play their first game since Sept. 28, 2003 against Baltimore with Rodriguez not on the active roster, the restricted list or disabled list.Then the Yankees will try to win their fourth straight game, which would be their second such streak since the All-Star break. New York won four straight July 17-20 but lost 10 of its next 18 games.After Starlin Castro drove in four runs and Rodriguez had an RBI double in Fridays 6-3 victory, the Yankees (59-56) have a chance to equal a season high by getting four games over .500 while Rodriguez apparently prepares for life as an advisor to managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner.I have a lot of faith in our group, Rodriguez said. Give those guys a lot of credit. Weve played hard down the stretch. A lot of things have happened, but I think Hal has set the tone for us. He said were still in this race and I believe him.That comment probably wouldnt have been a realistic comment 10 years ago but the way baseball is today, crazier things have happened. There is a lot of talent in that clubhouse.While Rodriguez will be relaxing away from Yankee Stadium, the Yankees have not announced who will replace him on the roster. Reports from Scranton said Tyler Austin is expected to join the Yankees after he batted .323 in 53 games there this season.Masahiro Tanaka takes the mound on five days rest Saturday because of Mondays off day and numbers show he is better with longer rest. In 12 starts on extended rest, Tanaka is 6-1 with a 2.56 ERA.Tanaka started on four days rest Sunday and produced one of his best outings of the season, allowing one run and six hits over six-plus innings during a 3-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians. It marked the 15th time he allowed two earned runs or fewer.The right-hander is 3-0 with a 2.12 ERA in five starts against Tampa Bay.The Rays swept the Yankees two weekends ago at home but have dropped seven of 11 since. Evan Longoria drove in two runs and hit his 15th home run at Yankee Stadium but the Rays struck out 12 times Friday.Being the opponent for the 1996 celebration is nothing new for the Rays. Besides this weekend, Tampa Bay has been the visiting team when Mariano Rivera appeared in his final game in 2013 and when Derek Jeter had his 3,000th hit in 2011.Matt Andriese makes his 11th start for the Rays on Saturday afternoon against the Yankees and looks to break a three-game losing streak. He started 6-0 but despite allowing three runs or fewer in seven straight starts, Andriese has been unable to get a win.He last pitched Sunday against Minnesota when he allowed three runs and six hits in 4 2/3 innings. He is 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA in three career appearances against the Yankees. Derrick Jones Jersey . The team says the Spain international has a muscle pull in his right leg. Barcelona hosts third-division side Cartagena in the return leg of their round-of-32 tie after winning their first meeting 4-1. Jimmy Butler Jersey . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. https://www.heatlockerroom.com/Jeremiah-...Edition-Jersey/ . If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. It seems like Joshua Dobbs has been at Tennessee forever. Dobbs will tell you that, for him, the past four years have passed in the blink of an eye.On Saturday Dobbs will run through the T formed by the Pride of the Southland Band for the final time when the Volunteers take on Missouri.It feels like Ive been here a while, said Dobbs, who will be starting his 33rd game at quarterback for Tennessee. But it also feels like it has flown by in some instances.But the urgency of the task at hand doesnt allow much time for reflection for Dobbs and his fellow 12 seniors. No. 19 Tennessee (7-3, 3-3 SEC) still has a chance to get to the SEC championship game. If the Volunteers can win their final two games with Missouri and Vanderbilt - and if Florida loses to LSU on Saturday - then Tennessee would go to Atlanta for the first time since 2007.And the Volunteers are going to need Dobbs to carry them. A week ago Kentucky ran for 443 yards against Tennessee, but Dobbs would not let his team lose. He threw for 223 yards and ran for 147 more, including a 45-yard touchdown run, as Tennessee won 49-36.Dobbs needs 329 total yards to become No. 3 on the Tennessee career yardage list behind Peyton Manning and Casey Clausen. He already holds the career rushing touchdown record for a quarterback with 26.And he has done it all as one of the best students in college football, majoring in Aerospace Engineering.Hes special, said Tennessee coach Butch Jones. He is everything you want a student-athlete to be.Here are some other key storylines for Saturday: No. 23 Florida (7-2, 5-2) can win the SEC East for the second straight year if the Gators can find a way to beat No. 16 LSU (6-3, 4-2) in Baton Rouge. Youll remember that this game was originally scheduled for Oct. 8 in Gainesville but was rescheduled and relocated due to Hurricane Matthew. LSU, under interim head coach Ed Orgeron, still has a chance at the Sugar Bowl if it can win its final two games with Florida and Texas A&M. Its been a tough season for Mississippi State (4-6, 2-4) but the Bulldogs still have a shot at their seventh straight bowl trip if they can beat Arkansas (6-4, 2-4). The Bulldogs, who have beaten Arkansas in each of the past four seasons, struggled last week against Alabama (51-3) as quarterback Nick Fitzgerald was held to only 15 yards rushing.Look for Fitzgerald to fare better against an Arkansas defense (12th in the SEC in rushing) that has struggled against good running teams like Auburn and LSU. There was not a better storybook ending last Saturday than that of Shea Patterson, the freshman quarterback from Ole Misss. Justise Winslow Jersey. .After the Rebels lost senior quarterback Chad Kelly to an injury, coach Hugh Freeze had a tough decision to make: To just play out the season with Kellys backup, Jason Pellerin, or to take the redshirt off Shea Patterson, one of the nations top high school quarterbacks and the star of the 2016 recruiting class. After consulting with the family, Patterson played and led the Rebels to a stunning 29-28 victory at Texas A&M.Now Patterson gets his second career start when the Rebels (5-5, 2-4) travel to Vanderbilt (4-6, 1-5). A win would put Ole Miss into a bowl for the fifth straight year.Here are a few more quick storylines:Georgia (6-4, 4-4) is done in conference play. The Bulldogs host Louisiana-Lafayette (4-5) on Saturday and close out the season with Georgia Tech. Eight wins in Kirby Smarts first season, with a chance for a ninth in a bowl, would not be bad.South Carolina (5-5, 3-5) can clinch a bowl bid in Will Muschamps first season as coach with a win over Western Carolina (2-8).No. 25 Texas A&M (7-3, 4-3) plays Texas-San Antonio (5-5) and needs to have an uncomplicated day as the Aggies face LSU on Thanksgiving Day in College Station.After starting 0-2 Kentucky (5-5, 4-4) looked like a long shot for a bowl. But the Wildcats will clinch a spot in the postseason for the first time since 2010 by beating Austin Peay (0-10) at Commonwealth Stadium.No. 19 Auburn (7-3, 5-2) got its heart broken last week with a 13-7 loss at Georgia. That kept the Tigers from playing for the SEC West championship on Nov. 26 against Alabama. But the Tigers need to take care of business against Alabama A&M (4-6) and start getting ready to play for pride against the No. 1 team in the nation. Running back Kamryn Pettway will not play for Auburn for the second straight week and quarterback Sean White is out with a shoulder injury. Jeremy Johnson will start at quarterback, with John Franklin III also getting playing time, according to Auburn coach Gus Malzahn.No. 1 Alabama (10-0, 7-0) has the SEC West and a trip to Atlanta already locked up. So look for the Crimson Tide to get their starters out early against Chattanooga (8-2) in order to get ready for next weeks Iron Bowl with Auburn. A historical note: This will be Coach Nick Sabans 46th game with his team ranked No. 1. That breaks the record he shared with Woody Hayes and Bobby Bowden. Saban should get his 41st win as the No. 1 team, which also breaks the record he shared with Hayes and Bowden. ' ' '
