Former NHL enforcer Georges Laraque may be headed into the political arena after a three-year absence from hockey, but it hasnt stopped him from voicing his opinion on matters around the league - namely that of his former club the Montreal Canadiens. Laraque - who confirmed Tuesday that he will vie for a seat in the House of Commons for the Green Party - criticized the Habs acquisition of tough guy George Parros to a Montreal newspaper, saying he wasnt intimidating enough in a competitive division. "I know him and hes a good guy - he will defend his teammates," Laraque told La Presse. "Im sure that when the Canadiens signed Parros, the Bruins and Shawn Thornton were relieved. In Ottawa and Toronto, they were relieved." Montreal acquired Parros from the Florida Panthers last week in exchange for forward Philippe Lefebvre and a seventh-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft. The 33-year-old had nine fighting majors in 39 games last season while averaging just over six minutes of ice time. "Hes a good guy, but in the NHL you have to intimidate," Laraque continued. "He has a good technique, but hes more like a wrestler than a finisher...Florida wouldnt let Parros go if he was doing the job. "The Canadiens division is the most tough - Im sure theyre better with him," added Laraque. "But knowing the Montreal market, people will begin to wonder why they got this guy after two or three beatings." The Canadiens signed Laraque as a free agent in 2008, looking to add toughness to a squad that had been manhandled by Boston in the playoffs. But Laraque rarely dropped the gloves. In two seasons with the Canadiens, he had one goal and four assists in 61 games. The Canadiens announced would buy him out a year-and-a-half later when they banished him from the team, apparently because he had become a distraction. He stayed on the 23-man roster for the rest of the season but was not seen at games or practices. "Some will say Im jealous and frustrated, but Im not," he told La Presse. "I know the guy - I know them all. But those who dont believe me will see for themselves." Cheap John Riggins Jersey .

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Shin-Soo Choo got the Cincinnati Reds started with a home run on the first pitch of the game Saturday night. Devin Mesoracos two-run homer in the 11th inning gave the Reds a 6-4 victory over the AL West-leading Texas Rangers. The Reds can forget about that defensive debacle in between, three errors in the third inning that led to three unearned runs for Texas and likely took a victory away from starter Mike Leake. "We made a bunch of mistakes, but they kept fighting and fighting, and thats all that matters that we got a win," manager Dusty Baker said. "I looked up there and they had one hit and three runs -- thats rare to see that. Usually Joey (Votto) doesnt make errors, Zack (Cozart) doesnt make errors. Its one of those nights." The Reds and Rangers both played their 81st game, reaching the midpoint of the regular season. Texas (47-34) has a half-game lead over Oakland while Cincinnati (46-35) is is in third place in the NL Central, a season-high 4 1/2 games behind division-leading Pittsburgh. J.J. Hoover (1-5) got the last two outs in the 10th, even after a walk and a hit. Aroldis Chapman worked the 11th for his 20th save in 23 chances. With runners at first and third for Texas in the 10th, Adrian Beltre had an inning-ending foul pop caught by catcher Mesoraco. A.J. Pierzynski drew a leadoff walk in the 11th, but Mitch Moreland -- whose deep flyball leading off the bottom of the ninth was caught by right fielder Jay Bruce against the wall -- then grounded into a double play. Cincinnati had lost six of seven games overall and was coming off consecutive shutout losses before Choos fifth leadoff homer this season, and 12th overall. The Reds had also lost five consecutive interleague games. "Every streak starts with one. You got to get one before you get 10, six or whatever it is," Baker said. "I think one game can get you going. And the way you win it gets you going sometimes too." Mesoraco was 0 for 4 with three strikeouts before his 380-foot homer into the left-field seats off Kyle McClellan (0-1), which came right after Todd Frazier was hit by a pitch to start the 11th. "Baseballs a crazy game. I think sometimes when youre struggling you try harder, but in reality you try less just because if youre going up there and youre grinding and youre trying to get a hit, most of the time youre not going to do it," Mesoraco said. "I think its just a matter of going up there, relaxing and staying within yourself." Leake allowed only three hits and one earnned run in seven innings.dddddddddddd But Cincinnati had three errors in the third when Texas scored three unearned runs. "Hes thrown the ball as well as anybody in the league and he really deserved better than what he got," Mesoraco said. The Rangers had only one hit before consecutive doubles by Elvis Andrus and Nelson Cruz to start the sixth for a 4-all tie. "We had one hit for a long time and three runs, so they kind of gave us three runs," Pierzynski said. "Their pitcher did a great job keeping us off balance and we had a couple of chances we didnt cash in. We did cash in a couple that we shouldnt have, so it evens out." Two of Cincinnatis three errors came on fielders choice plays that produced runs as Texas went ahead 3-2 in the third. All-Star first baseman Votto made two errors, the first when he was unable to pick up the ball after a grounder hit off the heel of his glove. Leonys Martin, the No. 9 hitter, followed with a single to extend his hitting streak to 13 games before consecutive fielders choice plays. Votto made a nifty backhanded stop of Ian Kinslers grounder, but he threw wide of home unsuccessful trying to get a runner. The throwing error allowed other runners to advance to second and third before Andrus hit a RBI grounder to shortstop Cozart. With Kinsler also running, Cozarts wide throw forced third baseman Jack Hannahan to reach away from the bag for the third Cincinnati error in four batters. Kinsler stopped momentarily before jumping onto the bag and avoiding the tag. Cruz then had a sacrifice fly. After going 1 for 19 his previous six games, Choo hit the first pitch into the visitors bullpen in left-centre field. That snapped a stretch of 20 consecutive scoreless innings by Texas pitchers that included a 4-0 victory in the series opener Friday night. Choo walked twice and had three hits, including a leadoff single in the ninth before he was caught stealing to end that inning. Texas rookie right-hander Nick Tepesch struck out seven, but was gone after allowing three consecutive hits to start the fifth. NOTES: The Reds got an unearned run in the top of the third when Derrick Robinson reached on an error by second baseman Jurickson Profar and scored on a bloop single by Brandon Phillips. ... Votto has 10 errors in 80 games this season. He had six in 109 games last year. ... Tepesch is winless in eight starts since his last win May 12 at Houston. He won his major league debut April 9 against Tampa Bay, but is winless in seven starts at Rangers Ballpark since.
