MONTREAL -- With all the changes the Montreal Alouettes have made recently, Anthony Calvillo still wasnt sure Wednesday who hed hear calling the teams offensive plays against the Toronto Argonauts. Montreal GM Jim Popp, the Alouettes interim head coach, made it clear former CFL head coach Doug Berry will be sending plays into Calvillo although he wasnt exactly sure where from. "Were determining whether we want that direct combination of Doug and Anthony looking at each other coming off the sideline or do we keep it the same (from upstairs coachs box)," Popp said. "All of a sudden if we flip theres another change so we havent decided that." Popp will begin his third coaching stint with the Alouettes (2-3) when they host the defending Grey Cup champions Thursday night at Percival Molson Stadium. Popp replaces Dan Hawkins, who was fired after five games despite signing a three-year contract in the off-season with the club. Berry was hired as a special advisor to Hawkins when he unveiled his new coaching staff Feb. 19. Now Montreals struggling offence is in the hands of Berry, a former Alouettes offensive co-ordinator and Winnipeg head coach. Be it from the coachs box or the sidelines, Berry will be in constant communication with Calvillo against Toronto. Mike Miller, who served as Hawkins offensive co-ordinator, will have a more focused role working with Calvillo. "Theyre still discussing whats best and well have that all ready to go (Thursday) but if theres a switch itll be one for one," Popp said. "Mike will go to the box and Doug will come down, or well leave it exactly the same. "Either way, Doug is calling the play." Montreal and Toronto split their season series last year before the Argos defeated the Alouettes in the East Division final en route to winning the 100th Grey Cup. After a 1-2 start this season, the Double Blue is atop the conference with a 3-2 record. "They play well together," said Alouettes receiver Arland Bruce III, a former Argo. "You know, they talk, they communicate well and we just have to take advantage of the holes that they leave open for us and just keeping chipping away, chipping away. "I think we have a good package in for that and well see what happens." Toronto head coach Scott Milanovich served as Montreals offensive co-ordinator when the club won consecutive Grey Cups in 2009 and 2010 under Marc Trestman. Trestman is now the head coach with the NFLs Chicago Bears. Chris Jones, Torontos assistant head coach and defensive co-ordinator, also won the first of his Grey Cup rings in 2002 as Montreals defensive line coach. The two teams will meet three times over the next five weeks, including a home-and-home series five days apart in early September. "Weve been preparing for Toronto," Calvillo said. "We know theyre a great team. "We know coach Jones is very creative in what he is able to do with the defence with all the different looks but weve had a great week of preparation. Things have been different for us in terms of we were able to get the game plan a lot earlier this week." Calvillo said despite the coaching change, Montreals offence has been able to get a lot of work done. "We were able to rep a lot of plays," he said. "I mean, that first day was almost 50 plays, the second day was almost 40 plays and then (Tuesday) was about 20 plays. "It went very fast and the good thing is we executed at a high level so I think overall were headed in the right direction." Montreal wont have veteran receiver Jamel Richardson as the two-time all-star suffered a season-ending knee injury earlier this week in practice. Richardson cracked the 1,000-yard receiving plateau for the fifth time last year and had 18 catches for 197 yards this season. "What youll see the rest of the season is receivers moving into different positions," Popp said. "They wont all just be a wide receiver or a slot receiver." Running back Brandon Whitaker (shoulder) wont play Thursday. Thats a big blow as Whitaker ran for 162 yards in Montreals 32-27 win over Edmonton on July 25 before being injured. Whitaker hopes to return for next weeks road game at Saskatchewan. Defensive tackle Moton Hopkins replaces Scooter Berry, who suffered a season-ending knee injury against Edmonton. Hopkins missed all of last season after a blood clot was discovered in his lung. Hopkins had a Greenfield Filter inserted into a vein in his chest to prevent another clot from reaching his lung. "Its been a long, long time," he said. "And then watching on the sidelines while being here was tough, too. "But I understand the situation and Im just really excited to get an opportunity. I hate that it had to come with Scoot getting hurt because I love the dude to death, but Im really happy to get a chance to play again."

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians and Miami Marlins will play game two of their three-game series at Progressive Field Saturday night, and it will be interesting to see how the umpiring crew reacts to some pointed post-game remarks by Marlins manager Don Mattingly, following Clevelands 6-2 win Friday night.Mattingly was livid with the umpires, following a first inning incident that appeared to be a strikeem-out-throw-em-out double play in the Marlins favor. Instead, it was ruled ball four, not strike three.With Carlos Santana at first, Jason Kipnis the batter, and a 3-2 count, Kipnis attempted to check his swing on a pitch from Andrew Cashner. Santana was running on the pitch. It appeared to be strike three, and the throw to second by catcher J.T. Realmuto was in time to complete what appeared to be a double play.But after some confusion, home plate umpire Nic Lentz ruled that Kipnis had checked his swing, and it was ball four. So instead of two outs and nobody on base the Indians had runners at first and second and nobody out. That led to a three-run rally, and an unhappy Marlins manager.It made me sick to my stomach, Mattingly said. Kipnis is walking back to the dugout. It was sickening. How can you miss that call? I dont know that it was miss-able. He (Lentz) obviously wasnt watching. Were a young team trying to win every game in a pennant race, but I guess these games matter only to us. They dont matter to them. Its sickening. That call changed the whole game.If nothing else, the home-plate meeeting with the umpires prior to Saturdays game should be interesting.ddddddddddddSaturdays pitching matchup will be Clevelands Trevor Bauer (9-6, 3.73) vs. Miamis Jose Fernandez (13-7, 2.79 ERA). Fernandez comes into the game having not allowed a run over his last 14 innings. He will be making his second career start vs. Cleveland. His first one came as a rookie in 2013, and was memorable.In a 10-0 victory over the Indians on Aug. 2, 2013, Fernandez pitched eight scoreless innings on three hits with 14 strikeouts and one walk.Bauer will be making his 23rd start of the season. In his last start, Bauer pitched six scoreless innings against Minnesota but didnt factor into the decision in a 1-0 Indians win in 10 innings. Bauer will be making his first career start against the Marlins.Outfielder Coco Crisp, the newest Indian, could make his debut Saturday night. Crisp was acquired from Oakland in a trade on Thursday. He originally broke into the big leagues with the Indians in 2002. Now, at age 36, hes back.He played here when he first came to the majors, and I was his manager for three years in Boston. I think this should be an easy transition for him, manager Terry Francona said.I thought it was going to be a little weird since this is the first time Ive been involved in a midseason trade, but coming back here brings back old memories, good memories. Im excited, Crisp said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
