Lee Westwood may have been firing a warning shot or playing mind games as he talked about the prospects of the U.S. and Europe in the Ryder Cup.As he prepared to make his 10th appearance in the competition at Hazeltine next week, he made it clear that he has not been entirely convinced by the selection and leadership of Davis Love III or vice-captain Tiger Woods.His [Loves] captaincy at Chicago was great for a couple of days, Westwood said, remembering how Love presided over his countrys rise and fall in 2012 at Medinah, when the team let a 10-6 lead slip in the singles on the final day.I dont know if something went wrong on the Sunday, or the team didnt play very well for some reason, but that will be in the back of their minds.Love was not the favorite to be named Americas captain before his role was confirmed, with Fred Couples fancied by many and the disunity that was obvious under Tom Watsons leadership at Gleneagles in 2014 still front of mind.Once the bulk of his team was named, however, the narrative quickly moved on. In terms of the balance of power, the Europeans, for whom the possibility of a rookie horror show has been raised, have been asked a lot by their local media about tackling what has been seen as a strong opposition line up.Love can boast players such as Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson and, while Europe has Rory McIlroy and Westwood, captain Darren Clarke will be heading to Minnesota with six players making their debuts.Westwood will be one of the experienced players in the team on hand to help rookies such as Chris Wood, Thomas Pieters and Matt Fitzpatrick adjust to the unique Ryder Cup atmosphere, but he hinted the U.S. team might have some teething troubles of its own.There seem to have been issues about team spirit and chemistry, Westwood told ESPN. Loves has not picked Bubba Watson and I dont know what that does for team spirit -- he was first outside the points qualification and is No.7 in the world.The captain is obviously building them up a lot and making a few interesting decisions. They have have got a strong side and probably are favorites but they havent won it for a while and they are playing in front of a home crowd -- there is a lot of pressure on them.That is going to keep building in the next week or so and by the time the Ryder Cup comes around it is going to be pretty intense for them, the week in Minnesota.They have got this task force in place, they are obviously being very serious and doing as much as they can to win the Cup back. There is a lot of pressure on them.The role of the teams vice-captains -- one which many thought Westwood would have been given for Europe had Clarke not made him one of his three picks -- is to help players deal with outside influences and issues, keep the team in top form.But having Woods, a seven-time player with a 13-17-3 record, on the U.S. roster will bring extra attention, even if Love has claimed the 14-time major winners strength will be in his contribution to strategy.I dont know what impact there will be from having Tiger around, Westwood said. They [the U.S. team] have always struggled to find a partner for Tiger thats been successful.He could have an adverse effect in the team room. People have always seemed to try to do too much when they have partnered him. It might be different if hes one of the vice-captains -- you dont know.

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers hope to spring some youthful exuberance on the Washington Nationals in the National League Division Series.The Dodgers plan on carrying seven rookies into the playoffs, along with 10 players who have spent at least some time in the minor leagues this year when roster turnover seemed to be a daily occurrence.The Dodgers put 28 players on the disabled list this season, the most by one team in at least 30 years, providing opportunities aplenty for players in the organization.When the season ended, the Dodgers were carrying the full allotment of 40 players, and whittling it down to the necessary 25 proved to be challenging.It was probably the most challenging roster construction for the playoffs that I have ever been a part of, said Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman. I think its a testament to the depth that we have and just a number of different guys who contributed throughout the year.We feel like the group we put together is a group that matches up really well with Washington, and were excited to get going.When the NLDS starts in the nations capital Friday, Corey Seager will not only be the signature rookie on the Dodgers roster, he will be one of the teams key performers. Seager is expected to win the NL Rookie of the Year award. But he is far from the only first-year player.Other Dodgers rookies on the NLDS roster include Andrew Toles, Austin Barnes, Julio Urias, Ross Stripling, Kenta Maeda and Grant Dayton. In addition, non-rookies who spent some time in the minor leagues include Luis Avilan, Charlie Culberson, Josh Fields, Pedro Baez and Yasiel Puig.It will be a tall order for such a young Dodgers roster, but if the club showed a distinct trait this year, it is to accept and overcome challenges, especially with having to overcome injuries. If they are to beat the Nationals, they will have to do it without home-field advantage.With October baseball, its more of teams that execute that have a tendency to win more, manager Dave Roberts said. Pitching drives the postseason, but there is also that execution componnent, that focus component.dddddddddddd With our guys, all year long, weve talked about playing every pitch and staying focused, and thats why, with this series coming up, I like our chances. Weve shown we can execute when we need to and focus pitch to pitch.Its not as if the Dodgers will be without veterans. Clayton Kershaw and Rich Hill will lead the pitching staff. Chase Utley, Adrian Gonzalez and Justin Turner will lead the offense. The Dodgers know a combination of steady veterans and up-and-coming youngsters is a healthy balance, but ultimately, the roster is not only about who is playing well now, but who is best capable of giving the Nationals problems.I think the environment that [Roberts] and the coaches have created, that our veteran players have created, has allowed these guys to come up from the minor leagues and be incredibly comfortable, Friedman said. That is something we expect to carry on.Roberts did not make his NLDS roster official, but he gave enough clues Tuesday to make an educated guess as to how it will look. Here is the roster that is expected to be available Friday:Starting pitchers (4): Kershaw, Hill, Maeda, Urias.Relief pitchers (7): Kenley Jansen, Joe Blanton, Baez, Stripling, Avilan, Dayton, Fields.Catchers (3): Yasmani Grandal, Carlos Ruiz, Barnes.Outfielders (6): Howie Kendrick, Joc Pederson, Josh Reddick, Puig, Toles, Andre Ethier.Infielders (5): Gonzalez, Utley, Seager, Turner, Culberson.Players who will travel with the team, but not be available to play, include Alex Wood, Rob Segedin and J.P. Howell. In the past three postseasons, Howell has been in the Dodgers bullpen, but he did not make the cut this time.Hes been a big part of what we have done this year, not just between the lines, but he has been a huge part of the success of our bullpen, with the mentorship, Friedman said of Howell. Obviously he will be with us, but he, as everybody would expect, was a total pro. But still, it was not easy. ' ' '
