Just as the late season perfect storm takes shape for the Impact, Marco Di Vaios possible departure at seasons end casts a foreboding shadow down Stade Saputo way. Ibraheim Campbell Jersey . It was back in July that Di Vaio disclosed to TSN.ca he would wait until the season had run its course before sitting down with his family to consider the option of continuing to play football in a city he, his wife and children were very comfortable living in. Not long afterwards the current MLS player of the week was given permission to return to Italy for personal reasons. Now we know, following his midweek disclosure, the comfortable Di Vaio family life has been shattered. Di Vaio is now living alone in Montreal, while his wife and two young children remain in Italy due to a family illness. There appears to be no timeline for their return. The leagues top scorer told media Wednesday that he wants to be with his family and if they are not able to re-join him in Montreal, he will not extend his career with the Impact. In early January this year, Di Vaio returned to Montreal a few weeks ahead of training camp with one clear objective in mind. He felt, after a disappointing debut season, he owed a debt of gratitude to Joey Saputo and Impact supporters. So, he promised himself that in return he would do something special for the upcoming season. Now, with the club on the cusp of the playoffs Di Vaio has certainly kept his side of the bargain. With the immense promise there is much more to come. Meanwhile, Brazilian-born Felipe, a player instrumental in so many of Di Vaios goals this season and also the Impacts second leading scorer, shone a beacon of light in the direction of a woefully underperforming Canadian mens national team the day after they were humbled by Mauritania. However, his midweek tweet was hardly an impulsive thing, with the Impact midfielder disclosing to TSN 690 the thought of playing for Canada has been on his mind for quite some time. "I told my coach Mauro Biello last year I want to stay here in Montreal, I love playing on the Impact, I love this city so I want to stay here and play and if I have opportunity to play on the Canadian team – why not," explained Felipe. Adding, "Well see what happens, you never know what can happen but if I have the opportunity to stay here and play for the national team that would be nice." With his star certainly on the rise Felipe surprisingly does not retain the services of an agent. Nor has he let the CSA know of his feelings towards perhaps one day trotting out in a jersey emblazoned with the maple leaf. "For now I didnt talk with nobody but well see what is going to happen and I hope I have opportunity to play for them," he said. Back in July, Camilo also revealed his intentions towards the mens national team. To date Felipe has not spoken with his fellow Brazilian. "I havent had opportunity to speak with him about that. But I think like me he would like to play for the Canadian national team if he has an opportunity." Felipe will be eligible to apply for permanent resident status next year and, if he is successful, a further wait would be required to comply with the FIFA international rule book. Making Montreal seem more like home Felipe also revealed that unlike in his first season where he lived alone, his girlfriend has now joined up with him in la belle ville. With a pair of midweek CONCACAF Champions League games mushroomed between two straight home league games, Saturday afternoons home date with Columbus is the start of a four games in 10 days stretch for the Impact. The team is currently on a season best four-game unbeaten streak in MLS play, matching their perfect start to the season. Against Columbus, Montreal is up against a club desperate for three points as the Crew look to put their spluttering playoff campaign back on track. The last time Columbus was in town on April 13, a freak snowstorm led to the game being pushed back 24 hours. Di Vaio was on the score sheet that day in a game that ended with the spoils shared. With Di Vaios disclosures as a back drop and the expectation of yet another sold out stadium, you can be sure the Impact faithful will do all they can to ensure the leagues top marksman feels right at home. For all the noise that comes out of the Pacific North West, there will be no greater moment across the MLS landscape than if Di Vaio bangs in his 18th Saturday afternoon. His instinctive goal celebration - a kiss of his wedding band finger - would be a moment for the MLS MVP-in-waiting to bridge that immense void felt for those three people who have been ever present at Saputo Stadium - his wife and two young children. Like Gianfronco Zola, who upon re-signing an additional year option with Chelsea back in 2002 told the supporters it shouldnt be him they should be celebrating but instead Mrs. Zola, before him. If it wasnt for Mrs. Di Vaios willingness to uproot her family from their comfortable life at home in summer 2012, the Impact supporters would never have had the chance to enjoy their 2013 MLS MVP. Over to you Impact faithful. Montreal Impact Vs Columbus Crew Saturday at 1:45pm Listen Live - CJAD.com You can reach and follow Noel Butler at:Noel.Butler@BellMedia.ca@TheSoccerNoel Britton Colquitt Jersey . -- First baseman Carlos Pena and outfielder Brennan Boesch have signed minor league deals with the Los Angeles Angels. Jamie Collins Jersey . "This doesnt end anything," he said. "Weve got 10-1 in our last 11 games, and were going home in first place. We just have to keep playing the way we are right now. http://www.brownsauthenticproshop.com/Youth-Nate-Orchard-Browns-Jersey/ . Beanballs were the theme Friday night as the Red Sox and Rays had another AL East rumble, with Boston earning a 3-2 victory on A.ANAHEIM – Erik Kratz is back with the Blue Jays for a third time, recalled on Wednesday when the club placed outfielder Cole Gillespie on the disabled list with an abdominal strain. Now 34 years old and with approximately a year-and-a-half of major league service time under his belt, Kratz is veteran enough to understand the ins and outs of baseballs business. "At different points in your career, you figure out how to deal with certain things and you figure out that baseball moves need to be made," said Kratz. "But Ill be honest. I was disappointed to be down there. I wasnt happy-go-lucky but I wasnt going to allow that to affect my play." Kratz worked with R.A. Dickey throughout spring training, catching each of his Grapefruit League appearances in an attempt to become comfortable receiving the knuckleball. He made sense as the second catcher behind Dioner Navarro, a right-handed bat with some pop. He lost out to Josh Thole, Dickeys personal catcher dating back to their days in New York. Kratz acknowledged his disappointment. "The first time I got sent down this year, I let it affect my play," said Kratz. Manager John Gibbons is a vocal supporter of Kratzs. The catchers most recent option to Buffalo, on June 23, wasnt a reflection of his performance. The Jays had just lost Brett Lawrie to a fractured finger and Jose Bautista to hamstring tightness. Carrying three catchers on the roster was no longer viable. He followed his teammates struggles from a distance, hitting .405 for the Bisons dating back to June 29, and wished he could help. "It was frustrating knowing I could be up here helping the team," said Kratz. "Everybody thinks they should be up here but when you get sent down, its all about how you respond mentally so that when they do call you back up, youre ready to play." Kratz describes a positive attitude in Buffalo. Like any Triple-A club, its mixed with young hopefuls whove tasted the big leagues, Anthony Gose and Kevin Pillar come to mind, and veterans like Dan Johnson, who are hoping for another opportunity. "If your attitude in Triple-A is I shouldnt be here, well, take a number," Thats something that can happen a lot in Triple A. That mentality can infect a clubhouse, that mentality of I should be up there. Spencer Drango Jersey. Oh, really? Should you really? How good did you do the last time up there? If you were 10-for-your-last-10, Im sure they wouldnt have sent you down." Offence Coming Around? Hitting coach Kevin Seitzer is seeing progress. After his charges were held to four runs in a four-game sweep at the hands of the Athletics, Seitzer is hopeful the Jays bats have turned a corner in Anaheim, reflected in a four-run, 14-hit performance on Tuesday evening. "I felt like our at-bats the first night here were better too and then (Tuesday) night they were really, really good," said Seitzer. "I mean we played a very solid, well-rounded game of baseball. Offence, defence, pitching, the whole deal came together (Tuesday) night." "The message that I really tried to drive home in our advanced meeting is weve got to focus on getting our singles," said Seitzer. "Thats what got us going in May was trying to single teams to death and stay in the middle of the field and take what the pitcher gives you and try and beat shifts and have team at-bats and really just focus on getting our base hits." Jays Miss Lawrie Anyone who doubted Brett Lawries importance to the Blue Jays lineup has been silenced by his absence. The club misses his gold-glove caliber third base and his ability to move to second base seamlessly, to say nothing of his bat behind the middle of the order. Lawries hit a career-high 12 home runs and was slugging .419 at the time of his injury. With Lawrie and Edwin Encarnacion both on the disabled list and no suitable replacements to be found, the established players who remain in the lineup are pressing and its part of the reason the offence is slumping. "I think thats been a big part of it right there," said hitting coach Kevin Seitzer. "With Brett Lawries intensity and passion and the energy that he brings not only to the lineup but to the dugout and the defence throughout the game, you know, we lost that. That was a big hit for us just from an energy standpoint. The guy plays with more heart or passion probably than anyone Ive ever been around." Lawrie suffered a fractured right index finger when he was hit by a Johnny Cueto pitch on June 22 in Cincinnati. His injury requires a healing period of three to six weeks.
