TORONTO - Seattle striker Clint Dempsey is the highest-paid player in Major League Soccer, according to the latest figures from the MLS Players Union. [url=http://www.wholesaleairjordan.us/]Wholesale Retro Jordans Shoes[/url] . The former New England Revolution, Fulham and Tottenham forward is making US$5,038,566.50 with the Sounders this season. There are eight other millionaire-plus players in the league including three forwards with Canadian teams: Marco Di Vaio of the Montreal Impact ($1,937,508), Toronto FCs Danny Koevermans ($1,663,323.33), and Kenny Miller ($1,124,992) of the Vancouver Whitecaps. Other big-ticket players are Thierry Henry ($4,350,000) and Tim Cahill ($3,625,000) of the New York Red Bulls, Robbie Keane ($4,333,333.33) and Landon Donovan ($2,500,000) of the Los Angeles Galaxy and Obafemi Martins ($1,725,000) of the Seattle Sounders. Donovan signed a contract extension last month that is believed to put him in the Dempsey salary range from next season on. The top Canadian earner is attacking midfielder Dwayne de Rosario, whose salary at D.C. United is listed at $645,333.33. Canadian defender Dejan Jakovic makes $303,341.33 at D.C. United. Canadian international Will Johnson earns $243,750 as captain of the Portland Timbers. Spanish winger Alvaro Rey is on $204,450 with Toronto FC while captain Steven Caldwell is a bargain at $89,999,98. Mike Magee of the Chicago Fire is also great value at $191,666.67. With 16 goals, he stands tied for second in league scoring with Vancouvers Camilo Sanvezzo ($247,500) behind Di Vaio (18 goals). The salary figures do not tell the whole story since teams can use allocation money to "buy down" the cost of a player against the salary cap. NOTES — Midfielder Kyle Bekker scored in a losing cause Wednesday as the Toronto FC reserves (3-3-1) lost 3-1 at the FC Dallas reserves (4-6-1, 13 points). The Toronto lineup included Quillan Roberts, Ryan Richter, Michael Thomas, Jonas Elmer, Reggie Lambe and Emery Welshman ... At 18,610 a game this season, Torontos average attendance stands 10th in the 19-team league. Seattle leads at 43,180 followed by Los Angeles (22,156) and Montreal (20,823). Vancouver is sixth at 19,954 ... Toronto FCs next league victory will be its 50th. The teams current overall record in MLS play is 49-103-66 in seven seasons.

He has played most of the time since, but missed a few contests due to the injury, then departed Thursdays win over the Twins and had tests that revealed the fracture.

Fabio Fognini pulled off a surprise 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 victory over two-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray to level the best-of-five quarterfinal at 2-2 before Andreas Seppi defeated James Ward 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 in the decisive match.

Kelly, who plays No. 8 at the back of the scrum, is captain of the Canadian womens team.TORONTO -- If the Toronto Raptors have a preferable post-season opponent, theyre not saying. The Raptors wrap up their record-breaking regular season Wednesday night at New York, and wont know until post-game wholl theyll face in the playoffs. And they insist they dont care. "Were just worried about ourselves," Amir Johnson said after Mondays victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. "We just want to clean up on our mistakes. Whoevers in front of us, were going to play the same way weve been playing all season." The Raptors, who set a franchise record with their 48th win of the season Monday night, will face either the Brooklyn Nets, Washington Wizards or Charlotte Bobcats when the opening round begins this weekend. The Raptors are tied with the Chicago Bulls for third in the Eastern Conference, but control their own destiny. Theyll clinch the No. 3 seed if they either beat the Knicks on Wednesday, or the Bulls lose at Charlotte. Theyll finish fourth if they lose and Chicago wins. "We havent thought about it or talked about it," guard Kyle Lowry said, about the ramifications of Wednesdays schedule. "Were just going to go out there and play our game." Raptors coach Dwane Casey has been resting his starters -- all-star DeMar DeRozan got the night off Monday. Casey said he would consider resting DeRozan again Wednesday, despite what outcome that might have on the game, and their conference seeding. "Im more worried about us moreso than who we play. Its about us. About our health,, rest, whatever we decide to do in that situation. [url=http://www.wholesaleairjordan.us/]Cheap Authentic Jordans[/url]. If we play Brooklyn, we play Brooklyn, if we play Washington, we play Washington, theres no easy teams left in the playoffs right now, all the teams are very capable," Casey said. "Brooklyn is probably more playoff-ready, but we cant control that and were not going into this game trying to control that. Im more worried about our guys health -- rest if we rest them -- and our rhythm. And its a fine line between the two." While the players might not have a stated preference, fans certainly do, and general consensus is Washington. The Raptors won the season series against the Wizards three games to one. The Raptors lost all three of their games to Charlotte this season, although only by a combined nine points. They split their four games with Brooklyn, but the Nets have that invaluable playoff experience. Five Nets players alone -- Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Deron Williams, Andrei Kirilenko and Joe Johnson -- have 432 playoff appearances combined. The Toronto Raptors: 147. Raptors starters DeRozan, Jonas Valanciunas and Terrence Ross: Zero. The Raptors are making their first playoff appearance since 2007-08. They were beaten in five games by the Orlando Magic. This is the sixth time in the teams 19-year history theyve made the playoffs. Their only series win was in 2000-01 when they beat the New York Knicks three games to two, before losing to the Philadelphia 76ers in seven games in the second round.
