Felix Hernandez hopes to take something positive into the offseason.Hernandez Bruce Bochy Jersey , 32, the longtime Seattle ace who has been sidelined since Sept. 8 with a strained right hamstring, is scheduled to start for the Mariners on Wednesday night in the finale of a three-game series against the playoff-bound Oakland Athletics.“I feel good. No problems. It’s 100 percent,” Hernandez told MLB.com of his injury. “I just want to finish strong and show them I can still pitch. It wasn’t a big injury. They just wanted to give me some rest.”Article continues below ...This season has, for the most part, been one to forget for Hernandez (8-13, 5.46 ERA), a six-time All-Star and former American League Cy Young Award winner who also has a perfect game to his credit.The right-hander hasn’t won since June 30, going 0-7 with a 6.14 ERA in his past 10 games, including the first relief appearance of his career after briefly being banished to the bullpen.Hernandez said he’s looking forward to one last start to work on some changes he’s made on his mechanics in recent weeks.Mariners manager Scott Servais said it’s important to give Hernandez another start, especially for his mental outlook.“One, he really wants to and that’s good,” Servais said. “No. 2, it is important to just go into the offseason with peace of mind. You want good results obviously and go out throw the ball well and give us a chance to win the ballgame. But also, so he feels good about where he’s at physically. Then you can gear up and figure out what your offseason program is going to be and how you’re going to get ready for next year.”Hernandez has enjoyed plenty of success against Oakland in his career http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-willie-mays-jersey , going 26-13 with a 2.78 ERA in 51 career games — including that lone relief appearance.Oakland (95-63), which is 2 1/2 games behind the New York Yankees in the race for the top wild-card berth and a chance to host the one-game playoff, is scheduled to start right-hander Edwin Jackson (6-3, 3.18 ERA) on Wednesday.Jackson is 5-0 with a 1.30 ERA in five career starts against Seattle.The Mariners twice rallied from three-run deficits to defeat Oakland 10-8 Tuesday on pinch-hitter Chris Herrmann’s two-run homer in the 11th inning. That helped the Mariners (86-71) clinch the season series with Oakland, giving them a 10-8 edge with one game left.The Athletics, who led 8-5 after seven innings, dropped to 68-1 this season when leading entering the eighth, the last major league team to suffer a defeat in such situations.A’s manager Bob Melvin admitted he was shocked by the result, which gave the Houston Astros the American League West title.“Yes, because of the way things have gone for us this year, but I don’t know how many times that happened,” Melvin said. “Not in many seasons I’ve managed. If it happened once, it happened once. It’s certainly a pretty good track record up to this point.” NEW YORK (AP) At 13, Charlie Fish in Cincinnati has just been given the parental go-ahead to use social media for the first time. He’s also a competitive golfer, avid ”SportsCenter” watcher and well aware of the attention received by offensive tweets posted years ago by some Major League Baseball players Will Clark Jersey , some when they were teenagers themselves.But is he old enough and mature enough to put all of those things together?Some parents have seized on posts by Milwaukee Brewer Josh Hader, Atlanta Brave Sean Newcomb and Washington National Trea Turner as teaching moments about how living life online means your posts may never go away. They’re just not sure whether their young, uber-sharers are listening.Charlie’s dad, Bill Fish, is hopeful that Charlie gets it. He’ll hope the same for his 9-year-old son when he, too, reaches the magical Fish family age of 13 and is allowed on Snapchat, Instagram or whatever the stream du jour will be.”Charlie came to me about the story and how dumb the players were to be racist on Twitter,” said the senior Fish, who once captained the Xavier University baseball team. ”I tried to convey that while only your buddies may see what you put online at this point, you never know when something could come back to bite you.”Fish uses a shorthand with his kids that’s popular among parents, one that seems old fashioned: ”My stance is to never put out anything you wouldn’t want your grandmother to read.” Those words are easy, but as a former head of a company focused on reputation management, Fish knows a thing or two about how old social media posts can rear later in life.”You wouldn’t believe how many parents came to us after colleges dug up things their children posted online while going through the application process,” he said. ”For these baseball players to be raked over the coals for something they said six or seven years ago seems a little unfair Barry Bonds Jersey , but at the same time a great lesson to talk about what should and what shouldn’t be put on social media.”What grandma may not know, along with youthful social media natives, is at the heart of the baseball controversy, along with why someone would make racist, sexist or anti-gay statements to begin with. Deleted tweets, private messages – just about anything – can be unearthed these days . For kids, the potential dangers of that are endless, from college admissions to rookie job interviews, both rites of passage likely not on the mind yet for 13-year-old Charlie.”Last year, there was a widely reported case of 10 students who had been accepted to Harvard who had those acceptance rescinded because of racist social media posts. The posts were supposedly in a private chat,” said psychologist Shane Owens, who treats adolescents, college students and young adults in Commack, New York. ”Most kids are not able to appreciate the long-term consequences of their actions.”Josef Blumenfeld in Natick, Massachusetts http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-madison-bumgarner-jersey , outside Boston, is a communications expert serving educational technology companies. He’s also the father of two girls, 15 and 17. His oldest is on Twitter and posts a lot about makeup, youth activism and mental health, and the Boston Bruins.”We talk about their social media activity all the time,” he said. ”We often point to something `not smart’ that someone they know did on social media. They roll their eyes, but we keep doing it.”The recent baseball tweets gone viral have not surfaced in their chats, but the subject of old posts resurfacing certainly has.”Even disappearing photos on Instagram are discoverable,” Blumenfeld said.The challenge for parents is to recognize that their kids may not consider social media a form of speech, said Ari Yares, a psychologist, parenting coach and father of four in suburban Washington, D.C.”We keep talking to our kids about how, just like the spoken word, you can’t take back what you say online. It’s always out there Juan Marichal Jersey ,” he said. ”The challenge in having these conversations with kids is that from a developmental perspective they don’t always see the impact that their actions can have.”Another important lesson of the ball player tweets is helping young people understand ”even their idols have done bad things that they regret,” said Dr. Gail Saltz, an associate professor of psychiatry at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill-Cornell Medical College. ”No one, including them, is immune to the negative consequences of making impulsive choices that did not take into account possible bad outcomes in the future.”But are the regrets sincere, asks Maureen Paschal, who has four kids ranging from 14 to 24. She, too, has brought up the baseball tweets with some in her brood.”My kids and I agreed that those players would have seemed more sincere in their apologies if they had cleaned up their social media accounts when they matured enough to see how awful those tweets were,” said Paschal, in Charlotte, North Carolina. ”Cleaning up after they were caught isn’t a very convincing argument for their change of heart.”
