(SportsNetwork.com) - Houston righty Brad Peacock drew the ire of manager Bo Porter his last time out. Now, he'll try to lead the Astros to a series win over the Oakland Athletics at O.co Coliseum. Peacock faced only five batters on Sunday and recorded just one out before Porter yanked him. He surrendered a leadoff home run in that one and then allowed a walk, struck out a batter and hit a batter before getting pulled. "I only went a third of an inning, but I'm feeling good now. I have had plenty of rest," Peacock said. "I've been feeling great in my bullpens and I'm ready to take ...

By Knup It's a topic that often times seems to get thrown around, but doesn't happen much. The idea is that players who head to college basketball have a pretty good reason to argue that they should be paid in some form or fashion. Regardless of whether or not you agree with this, there is another option for them, but it's an option that they typically don't choose to do. This other choice is to go play overseas, make some money for a year, and then enter your name into the NBA Draft the next season. While this may hurt a few of the major

Columbus Blue Jackets (22-41-7) at Vancouver Canucks (42-20-8), 10 p.m. (ET)
(Sports Network) - The Vancouver Canucks will shoot for just their third win in nine games when they host the lowly Columbus Blue Jackets tonight at Rogers Arena.
Vancouver has compiled a 2-4-2 mark over its last eight contests, but is still holding a comfortable 11-point lead over Colorado in the race for the Northwest Division title.
Although the slide has not done significant damage to Vancouver's division title hopes so far, the Canucks would like to get back on the winning track tonight before heading out a four-game road trip. The Canucks are 2-4 on their current seven-game homestand, dropping them to 20-10-4 as the host this season.
Tonight's opponent offers Vancouver a good opportunity to get its confidence back, as the Blue Jackets enter tonight on a three-game slide and are still dead last in the NHL with 51 points. The Canucks had won nine in a row against Columbus before the Blue Jackets notched a 2-1 shootout win in Ohio on Dec. 13.
The Canucks still own a four-game home winning streak over the Blue Jackets, who haven't won in Vancouver since Oct. 5, 2009.
After dropping a 4-1 decision to Montreal last Saturday, Vancouver had three days off to prepare for the Coyotes, but still dropped a 5-4 regulation decision to Phoenix on Wednesday. Vancouver held a 2-0 lead in the first period, but the Coyotes scored five of the game's next six goals to take control of the contest.
Alexandre Burrows posted a goal and an assist for the Canucks, while Roberto Luongo was tagged for all five goals on 33 shots.
"Sometimes it's just a matter of how good you play," Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa said. "[The Coyotes] are a good team and they're playing well lately, obviously, and they got one more than us tonight."
Henrik Sedin posted two assists in Wednesday's loss, ending an eight-game point drought that fell one game shy of tying the longest pointless streak of his career.
Luongo's struggles continued, however, as the netminder surrendered three or more goals for the seventh time in eight starts. Cory Schneider will get the start in net tonight and the backup has allowed two goals or less in each of his last seven appearances, going 5-1-1 over that stretch.
After winning four straight to begin March, the Blue Jackets have been outscored by a combined 9-2 margin during their three-game slide. Columbus was shut out Wednesday night in Edmonton, as Devan Dubnyk made 22 saves to lead the Oilers to a 3-0 decision.
Curtis Sanford gave up two goals on 26 shots in defeat for the Blue Jackets.
"Tonight was as bad as we've played all season, I'm really disappointed with the way we played tonight," Blue Jackets interim head coach Todd Richards said. "Many of the things we've done in the past to win games were really nonexistent tonight."
Columbus is playing the middle part of a three-game road trip and is just 9-22-4 as the guest this year.
