TORONTO -- It appears the writing is officially on the wall for Toronto FC fullback Richard Eckersley. LeVeon Bell Jersey . There is no problem with his play. Far from it. A product of Manchester Uniteds youth system, the 24-year-old English defender is a quality defender who can push up the flank. An afternoon playing against the hard-nosed redhead will likely leave a mark. But Eckersley is simply too expensive under the confines of the MLS salary cap. His salary was listed at US$390,000 last year and $310,000 this season. The actual number was probably higher, with the club using allocation money to buy it down. In 2014, it will be even bigger. Suffice to say that the current TFC regime did not sign him to the deal. The underachieving MLS team has shed salary this season in a bid to pave the way for new talent. Eckersley is seen as one of the last dominos to fall. On Tuesday, manager Ryan Nelsen offered his bluntest assessment when asked about the fullbacks future with the club. "This is not anything to do with Richard, because Richards a fantastic player. Hes a really good player in this league," said Nelsen. "But if you got Dani Alves (of Barcelona), Glen Johnson (of Liverpool), Ashley Cole (of Chelsea) and put them on $5(00,000), $6(00,000), $700,000 contracts here, you wouldnt do it. It makes absolutely no sense to put a left or a right back on that amount of money because it just destroys your salary cap. "So its not the players fault that theyre on this type of contracts. Its just obviously youve got to balance your salary cap to proportion where you want the most amount of money on the field and where it can have the biggest amount of impact. "Thats why I kind of feel really bad for Richard, because hes kind of in that situation where his agent did a really good job for him -- but probably too good of a job." Nelsen said Eckersleys deal was so big -- second only to designated player Danny Koevermans US$1.66 million on Torontos salary list this season -- that renegotiation was out of the question. Koevermans actual hit against the $2.95-million cap is only $368,750 as a designated player. The fact that Eckersley missed 14 games -- almost 100 days -- earlier this season after injuring his hamstring celebrating teammate Darel Russells tying goal March 6 against FC Dallas must have made Torontos bean-counters grind their teeth. Eckersley has not played the last two games. He missed the Sept. 14 defeat in New York with a knock and sat out last Saturdays home loss to Sporting Kansas City as Nelsen rewarded Mark Bloom ($46,500) with another start. Eckersley said diplomatically Tuesday that he was "happy to share the load." And that Bloom deserved the Kansas City start because he "did brilliant" against New York, he added. "When Im recalled and when he (Nelsen) wants me to play again, Im ready," he said. Its the kind of model citizen he has been at the club. But he knows he is a square peg in a round hole, salary-wise in the MLS. "Fullbacks in this league dont get paid a lot of money. But Im not some ordinary fullback," he said matter-of-factly. "But its the clubs decision. Im happy to go with whatever they decide. My futures in their hands, isnt it." His 72 career TFC games (70 starts) are second only to Stefan Freis 81 (81 starts) among active club players. Frei, another faithful servant of the Reds, is also headed towards the exit sign, his $200,000 contract expiring at the end of the season and his job usurped by Joe Bendik. With Eckersley under contract next season, Toronto (4-15-11) has limited options considering his price tag. The team could come to a settlement with him, but the severance cost would go against the salary cap. And a trade or loan within MLS is unlikely under his current terms. There is also the option of an international transfer. The most likely exit strategy is Toronto using its one permitted off-season buyout. The club can use its own funds to negotiate a settlement, which would not count against the salary cap. An MLS official said such a buyout usually leads to the player exiting the league. Asked if he expects to be back with Toronto next season, Eckersley laughed and said: "I dont know. If you ask me that in a months time, I might give you an answer. "But because theres three, four games to go, Ill just say Im going to keep working for now." Joe Namath Jersey . Wawrinka, who is seeded fourth, is in the top half of the draw with Serbian Novak Djokovic. The Swiss star outlasted Djokovic in a five-set quarterfinal thriller last year and stunned Spaniard Rafael Nadal in the final to capture his first-ever Grand Slam title. Mark Gastineau Jersey . -- The Minnesota Twins have granted relief pitcher Matt Guerrier his unconditional release, making the 35-year-old right-hander a free agent. http://www.authenticnyjetspro.com/Wesley-walker-jets-jersey/ .

Now that the organization is shrouded in uncertainty surrounding the long-term future of star forward Kevin Love, Saunders is returning to the bench to try revive a franchise that hasnt made the playoffs in 10 years. With the teams coaching search complicated by Loves status, the Timberwolves decided the best course of action was to have Saunders, who was hired last season as president of basketball operations, step in for a second stint as coach until the situation stabilized, two people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Thursday. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not officially announced the move. A news conference was scheduled for Friday. Saunders previously coached the Timberwolves from 1995-2005. He won 411 games in 10 1/2 seasons in Minnesota and guided the Wolves to the only eight playoff appearances in franchise history, including the Western Conference finals in 2004. He has a career record of 638-526 in 16 seasons as an NBA head coach, a career that also includes stops in Detroit and Washington. Saunders is joining a short list in the NBA of coaches that also have final-say executive authority, one that includes newly hired Stan Van Gundy in Detroit, Doc Rivers with the Los Angeles Clippers and, to a certain extent, Gregg Popovich in San Antonio. Saunders will continue to work closely with GM Milt Newton in the front office while handling coaching duties. When Rick Adelman retired at the end of the regular season, he did so in part to try to help the Timberwolves move forward with a plan to show Love, a three-time All-Star who can opt out of his contract next summer, that there was a long-term plan in place for success. But Loves tenuous situation didnt help the search process, with trade rumours serving as a caution sign for several high-profile candidates. Saunders was in the market for a coach with extensive head coaching experience, either in the NBA or at a major college program, one that could command the respect of a young locker room and also handle the media scrutiny that comes with the questions surrouunding Love. Joe Klecko Jersey. Names like Tom Izzo, Billy Donovan and Fred Hoiberg came and went without any traction. The Wolves hosted Memphis coach Dave Joerger for an interview two weekends ago, but Grizzlies owner Robert Pera sweetened his contract to keep him around. Sam Mitchell, Lionel Hollins, Scott Skiles and several others received consideration as well. Unable to find what they felt was the right fit for a delicate job, Saunders and owner Glen Taylor met this week to reassess the situation. Taylor said when he brought Saunders back as team president that he would not put him back on the bench. He fired Saunders as coach once before, in 2005 when Latrell Sprewell and Sam Cassell, unhappy with their contracts, submarined the follow-up to the teams stirring run to the Western Conference finals. Saunders was also hopeful that he could find someone other than himself to take over the team. But with Loves status preventing them from pursuing the coaches they felt would fit best, the two decided that Saunders should take over for at least this season if not longer. The Timberwolves have not given up on convincing Love to play out this season in Minnesota and re-sign next summer to a contract that can pay him and extra year and about $26.5 million more than any other team. It was not immediately clear what the appointment of Saunders would do for Loves desires to stay or go. Love has yet to make the playoffs in his six seasons in the league and is believed to be growing impatient with the Wolves, who finished 40-42 and in 10th place in the West this year. Love created a stir when he spent last weekend in Boston, where the Celtics are rumoured to be making a run at trading for the 25-year-old power forward before the June 26 draft. Just how long Saunders will coach remains to be seen. There is the possibility that Saunders will add assistants to his staff who could be groomed to eventually take over. The Wolves were expected to reach out to Mitchell, a former Timberwolves player and Raptors head coach, and David Blatt, who has spearheaded Russias return to Olympic relevance and coaches in Israel, to gauge their interest in joining his staff.
