Which players have most affected this years pennant races? Here are some of the top surprises and disappointments that help explain where we are as we head into September.SURPRISESBoston Red Sox: Rick PorcelloThe right-handers first season in Boston was a huge disappointment as he went 9-15 with a 4.92 ERA. This year, hes 17-3 with a 3.23 ERA. Yes, win-loss record is dependent on run support, but six games below .500 to 14 games over .500 is a 20-game swing. That obviously overstates his actual value. But in the same number of innings as last year, Porcello has allowed 34 fewer runs, even though offense has gone up leaguewide, and that has been worth 3-4 additional wins for the Red Sox.Todd Frazier Jersey . -- Ty Montgomery had 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and fifth-ranked Stanford held on to beat No. Zack Wheeler Jersey . -- Aaron Murray threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns, ran for another score, and led No. http://www.metssale.com/mets-keon-broxton-jersey/ . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when their ragged power play continued to struggle. Pete Alonso Jersey . Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat. Tim Tebow Jersey . -- Five former Kansas City Chiefs players who were on the team between 1987 and 1993 filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the team hid and even lied about the risks of head injuries during that time period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL.While many of her contemporaries have reached the elite level as three-year-olds, Faraway Towns trainer Matthew Smith believes it is only a matter of time before she joins them.Faraway Town is nominated for the $2 million Magic Millions Guineas on the Gold Coast on January 14.The Group One-placed filly is set to trial at Randwick on Tuesday as Smith determines his team for Australias richest race day.Well make a decision on whether she runs on the 31st of December, which is most likely, but Ill wait and see what happens, Smith said.Faraway Town finished sixth in the Classic as a two-year-old and was the first horse over the line with all-female owners, earning a $325,000 bonus.She ran third behind Yankee Rose and Telperion in the Group One ATC Sires Produce Stakes at Randwick on April 2 and chased home subsequent Group One winners Prized Icon and Divine Prophet when fourth in the Champagne Stakes one week later.Shes a nice filly, Smith said.Shes going to win a good race sooner or later.Shes got the ability, its just a matter of things falling into place a little bit.After an encouraging first-up third inn the Listed Brian Crowley Stakes, Faraway Town went to Melbourne where she finished ninth in Listed company on Melbourne Cup Day and fourth in the Group Two Sandown Guineas on November 12.ddddddddddddIn Melbourne things just didnt go our way but that happens, Smith said.Weve just got to keep producing her fit and well and Im sure itll fall into place for her.Stable newcomer Heart Testa is also down to trial on Tuesday along with Frill Seeking as Smith fine tunes them to travel north.Ill have my three big guns trialling, Smith said.Heart Testa, formerly trained by Chris Waller, is yet to make his competitive race debut for Smith who will be aiming to return the seven-year-old to the form which gave him victory in the Group Three Southern Cross Stakes in February last year.Hell most likely go and run on the 31st of December at Eagle Farm or on the same day at Randwick, Smith said.Frill Seeking will be at Eagle Farm on New Years Eve to run in the Listed Nudgee Handicap (1200m).
