THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- Troy Hill is getting a second chance with the Los Angeles Rams, and he claims he wont waste it.The Rams re-signed the second-year cornerback to their practice squad Wednesday, one day after waiving him in the wake of his arrest last weekend. Hill participated in practice while the Rams (4-6) prepared for their trip to New Orleans.Hill had carved out a regular role on the Rams defense after just nine games in his second NFL season, only to lose it by crashing his car and getting arrested last Saturday morning. But coach Jeff Fisher said he believes in second chances, and Hill got one immediately after clearing waivers.Its a humbling experience, and Im thankful for these coaches, Hill said. I let them down, and they gave me this second opportunity. I just want to do everything I can to show them that I can be trusted and work my way back.Los Angeles waived Hill on Tuesday, three days after he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. He was involved in a crash on a freeway near Encino early Saturday morning, and the Rams deactivated him for Sundays game against Miami.Hill declined to go into details about the accident or his arrest, but the Ventura County product acknowledged that he figured he had blown it with the team.I really did, he said. I know I let this team down.Hills 38 tackles are still fourth on the roster, and he has started four games for the Rams, filling in for injured starting cornerbacks Trumaine Johnson and E.J. Gaines at different times. Hill felt the most embarrassment when he wasnt with his teammates for their 14-10 loss to the Dolphins.I just let them know that I let yall boys down, Hill said. I should have been out there with yall on Sunday. It hurt me more than anything, trying to watch the game from a TV screen and Im not out there. Just that guilt that I let them down, regardless of whatever the situation was.The Rams claimed Hill off waivers from New England on Dec. 31 after the undrafted Oregon product spent most of his rookie season with the Cincinnati Bengals. Los Angeles liked Hills coverage skills and grasp of their defensive scheme.I think people deserve second chances in life, Fisher said Tuesday before the decision to re-sign Hill. I think he learned from it, but I was just disappointed in his choices.The Rams also re-signed cornerback Steve Williams, who joins rookie Michael Jordan on the active roster in their restocked defensive secondary. Los Angeles signed and released Williams earlier this season, and the San Diego Chargers re-signed him in early October before releasing him two weeks ago.The Rams are shuffling their defense before they face Drew Brees and the NFLs most productive offense, but Fisher is also thinking about changes to his offense after its latest impotent performance. Fisher refused to say whether hell make changes on his offensive line before visiting the Saints.But Fisher is happy with his biggest change of all: No. 1 pick Jared Goff has built on his solid effort against the Dolphins with strong work in practice, calling him lights-out during drills on Wednesday.Hes got a really good feel for it, Fisher said of Goff. This week, so far after two days of practice, hes putting it down the field and doing some good things. Hes in complete control of what were doing, so its really good to see.QUOTABLEIf things arent going well, whether youre in sales and youre not making sales, or youre coaching and youre not scoring touchdowns, its frustrating. -- Rams offensive coordinator Rob Boras on his units strugglesNOTESDE William Hayes missed practice to attend to a family illness, Fisher said. Hayes will be with the Rams on Sunday. ... C Tim Barnes skipped practice Wednesday to rest his injured foot, while DE Ethan Westbrooks rested a thigh injury.

Wholesale Authentic Jerseys . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. Of the 30 teams in the major leagues, 18 are either in playoff position or within 3 1/2 games of a spot.Thats enough to give a lot of fans hope down the stretch -- but theres a catch.The more contenders there are in a postseason race, the harder it is for any one team to emerge. Take a look at the American Leagues second wild card, for example: Right now, Baltimore leads that race and Detroit is only two games back, but according to the playoff probabilities at Fangraphs.com , the Orioles have only a 43 percent chance to reach the postseason, and the Tigers are at 36 percent.Thats partly because there are so many other teams (the Astros, Mariners, Royals and even the Yankees) still within striking distance. Aside from the clear division leaders like the Cubs, Nationals and Rangers, nobody should feel all that great about their situation right now.Its easy for teams to stay optimistic if they arent that far from a playoff spot, but the games-back column can be a bit of an illusion. The New York Mets are only 2 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the second wild card in the National League -- hardly a daunting deficit with over a month to play. But the Marlins and Pirates are in between, meaning New York also has to worry about outperforming those other teams over these next few weeks.Fangraphs gives the Mets a 19-percent chance to make it. That 2 1/2-game margin is certainly surmountable, but a lot will have to go right for New York to return to the postseason.Here are a few other developments from around baseball:ON A TEARYankees rookie Gary Sanchez is hitting .405 with 11 homers in 222 games this season.dddddddddddd. Sanchez entered Sundays game already leading his teams position players in wins above replacement (WAR) on the year, according to Baseball-Reference.com.Over half (19 of 34) of Sanchezs hits have gone for extra bases this season. After the Yankees were sellers at the non-waiver trade deadline, Sanchez is just what they needed to hold New Yorks attention for at least a little while longer.ON A TEAR, PART IIBostons Dustin Pedroia had hits in 11 straight at-bats, coming within one of the major league record. He grounded into a double play in his final at-bat Saturday night.It takes a lot for a full-time player to move the needle on his batting average at this stage in the season, but Pedroias went up from .306 to .320 over his past three games. Hes hitting .398 in August, albeit with no homers.FANTASY FOCUSWith September call-ups looming, keep an eye on top prospect Yoan Moncada of Boston. If he gets a chance to play with the Red Sox, his speed could be an immediate fantasy asset.LINE OF THE WEEKMatt Moore of San Francisco came within one out of a no-hitter before giving up a single to Corey Seager of the Dodgers in the ninth inning Thursday night. He was pulled immediately after that hit, but his 133-pitch effort was still a highlight this past week.Honorable mention goes to Torontos Josh Donaldson, whose three-homer game Sunday had fans throwing hats onto the field.---Follow Noah Trister at www.Twitter.com/noahtrister ' ' '
