CALGARY -- The dream scenario for the host city of a Grey Cup is having the home team in it. Custom Washington Nationals Jerseys . The Saskatchewan Roughriders made the Regina organizing committee and their fans happy Sunday with a 35-13 upset of the Calgary Stampeders in the West Division final. Chants of "Henry, Henry" rang out in the visitors locker room at McMahon Stadium. Saskatchewan will face the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and quarterback Henry Burris in next Sundays Grey Cup at Mosaic Stadium. The Roughriders will attempt to become the third host team in a row to win the CFLs championship trophy. The Argonauts beat Calgary in Toronto last year to take the Cup and the B.C. Lions won it in Vancouver in 2011. "Thats another part of the storyline, but for us, its about having a Grey Cup at home," Roughrider quarterback Darian Durant said. "We know how hard it is to come to Mosaic for opposing teams. To have forty or forty-five thousand Rider fans, its going to be great." The Ticats punched their ticket to this years championship game with a 36-24 win over the Argonauts in the East Division final earlier Sunday. This years Grey Cup features teams that finished second in their respective divisions and needed to win division semifinals and finals to get there. "We know Rider Nation is fired up," Durant said. "They deserve it and its going to be a fun week." Saskatchewan last played in the Grey Cup in 2009 and 2010 and lost to the Montreal Alouettes in both games. Calgary boasted the best regular-season record in the CFL at 14-4, but could not hang onto the ball Sunday. The No. 1 offence in the regular season turned the football over seven times and had possession of it for just eight minutes and 43 seconds in the first half. "Its hard to explain," Calgary head coach John Hufnagel said. "Obviously were a little bit in shock the way the game unfolded. Having that many turnovers to ruin the game (and) to have that type of tackling by our team, its hard to explain." Trailing 22-6 at halftime, Hufnagel replaced starting quarterback Kevin Glenn with Drew Tate, but the Stampeders managed just one touchdown in the second. Durant completed 24-of-30 passes for 280 yards with touchdown passes to Rob Bagg, Weston Dressler and Chris Getzlaf. Running back Kory Sheets scored on a one-yard touchdown plunge. Kicker Chris Milo made two field goals in the fourth quarter after his first of the game was blocked. Calgarys Rene Paredes made both of his field-goal attempts. Tate threw a touchdown pass to Joe West. Glenn completed 7-of-13 passes for 180 yards and was intercepted twice. Tate was 5 for 11 for 90 yards. Calgary was minus-4 in rushing yards in the first half. Stampeder running back Jon Cornish, the CFLs leading rusher this season, mustered 67 yards in the game. Sheets finished second in rushing to Cornish, but romped for 177 yards Sunday. "Tonight was just about the team winning and team goals," Sheets said. "There was nothing individual, nothing personal." Calgary was without starting defensive tackles Micah Johnson and Demonte Bolden because of knee injuries suffered in the final game of the regular season. The Roughriders keyed on replacements Junior Turner and Freddie Bishop III. "They were missing their two big plugs inside and we knew that going in," Durant said. "We wanted to exploit that, especially with two guys that havent played all year. We knew they werent in the type of shape they needed to be to stop the run." The Roughriders lost both games at McMahon during the regular season, but their most recent Oct. 26 was by just four points. "The games where we played them earlier this season, we felt like we gave them the games," Durant said. "All along, we felt like we were the better team." Calgary had set a franchise record for the fewest turnovers in a season with 27, which was also the second-lowest in league history. But receivers Mo Price, Jeff Fuller and Brad Sinopoli each fumbled after the catch and turned the ball over. With just over four minutes remaining in the game, returner Larry Taylor lost control of a Roughrider punt. Paul Woldu knocked it out of bounds to give the visitors the ball on Calgarys 32-yard line and Saskatchewan converted the turnover to a field goal. Glenn was intercepted twice and also had an attempted touchdown throw to the end zone knocked down in the first half. Calgary also turned the ball over on downs once. "You go from the highest high to the lowest low," Glenn said. "Right now, its pretty low. Saskatchewan had a banner season in takeways with 53 --their second-highest in 17 seasons -- and they made the most of Calgarys errors. Roughrider defensive back Dwight Anderson, who screamed "Calgary sucks" into media microphones after the loss Oct. 26, thought that Stampeders receiver shouldnt have worn long sleeves. "It was a cold-weather game. The ball was going to be slippery," Anderson said. "Guys were wearing sleeves out there so the ball wont sit well on the sleeves. We just had to go after the ball." Kickoff was under a sunny sky and a temperature of minus-8 with an announced 33,174 in the stadium. A light south wind made it feel more like minus-14 and the temperatures dropped as the sun lowered. Saskatchewan beat the Lions in a cold division semifinal at Mosaic last week. Durant felt that battle-hardened his team well for the West final. "I heard the weather was nice here for the past couple weeks and they werent used to playing in this weather," Durant said. "Going out there and practising in Regina and playing against B.C. in basically minus-20, we were ready for this. "We think the weather played a factor in their ball security."

Speaking to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Boras, the man who represents the likes of Texas Rangers slugger Prince Fielder, 2013 AL Cy Young winner Max Scherzer of the Detroit Tigers and Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper, places the blame on general manager Alex Anthopouloss failure to dip into the free agent market on the shoulders of Jays ownership, a group Boras deems "a successful and committed ownership that needs to give their baseball people financial flexibility." "There is no one who has the asset base of Rogers," Boras said to Rosenthal. "[Torontos] a premium city. Its a premium owner with equity. And its a very, very good team that with additional premium talent could become a contending team." Outside of catcher Dioner Navarro, the Jays, tipped to be after free agent pitching and a second baseman, have remained entirely inactive while the likes of Ubaldo Jimenez, A.J. Burnett and Masahiro Tanaka found new clubs. Because the team has two protected first-round picks, the Jays seemingly would have leverage when it comes to compensation-eligible free agents. Anthopoulos, for his part, defended ownership on being informed of Borass remarks. "Our ownership has been outstanding and given us all the resources we need," said Anthopoulos. The Blue Jays and Boras have traditionally had a frosty relationship. Borass very first major contract showdown was between the Jays and reliever Bill Caudill in 1984. After acquiring the pitcher from the Oakland As, Boras negotiated a five-year extension for his client at $1.5 million a season that made him the highest paid player on the team. Caudill flamed out due to injury and was released in 1986 after pitching only jjust over 105 innings for the team. Bryce Harper Jersey. The acrimony from the deal lingered. In 2009, the Jays drafted lefty starter James Paxton of Ladner, BC. The Jays could not come to an agreement with Paxton, who was being advised by Boras at the time, and he chose to head back to the University of Kentucky to play for its baseball team. Blue Jays president Paul Beeston called into question the actual nature of Paxtons relationship with Boras. "Because it was Scott, the way you deal, you deal through him," Beeston told the Globe and Mail at the time. "You dont deal through the family." The NCAA allows its athletes to have "family advisers," but forbids them from having agents, as it would compromise their amateur status. Due to Beestons comments, the NCAA launched an investigation into Paxtons arrangement with Boras. Paxton did not participate with the investigation out of fear of being suspended by the school. Kentucky, fearing that the school would face sanctions if it allowed Paxton to play whilst under investigation, filed a motion that allowed Paxton to keep his scholarship and remain part of the team, but did not let him actually play in any games. Part of that filing included the suggestion that Paxton breached the "no agent" rule. Paxton, now a member of the Seattle Mariners, was eventually declared ineligible and left the school for a Texas team in the independent league. Boras currently represents two of the last three compensation free agents on the market (with starter Ervin Santana the other) in Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales. The Jays dont appear to have any interest in Morales, but could explore the possibility of slotting Drew in at second base. The 30-year-old former Red Sox shortstop has never played a game at second in his career. The Blue Jays open their exhibition schedule on Wednesday against the Philadelphia Phillies in Dunedin, Florida.
