Finals or no finals, Mitchell Pearce says he owes it to his Sydney Roosters teammates to spend the remainder of the NRL season rebuilding the clubs winning culture.The Roosters fall from grace has been nothing short of dramatic this year and after three successive minor premierships including the 2013 title, the club is near certain to miss the playoffs for the first time under coach Trent Robinson.Due to injury, and suspension over his Australia Day antics Pearce has only played four games this year. In his return from a month out with a calf injury, he earned man-of-the-match honours despite the Tricolours 24-20 loss to Canterbury on Thursday night and has declared he will keep fighting.I want to keep firing for the boys because Ive let them down this year, Pearce said.Sitting out from footy at the start of the season gave me an opportunity to watch plenty of footy.Ive also gone through a lot of maturity off the field. A lot of self-development.So, now Im trying to take my game to another level, trying to take this team to another level.Im 27 and hopefully coming into my best footy.Thats my focus, to be the best I can be, hopefully that influences my teammates as well.Pearce said it had been difficult to watch the demise of the Roosters from the sidelines this year.Were winners here, were a proud club and proud players. (But) the culture has definitely dropped off this year, he said.There have been plenty of things happen. A few obvious ones and some struggles. Weve come off three big years where we won three minor premierships and a competition.So, as a club, were looking at this as a little down period ... you can roll over or you can keep fighting.The second-last placed Roosters need to win all of their last nine games to qualify for the finals, a feat Pearce hasnt give up on.The goal is to make the finals, he said.I know that sounds ridiculous when were right down at the bottom of the ladder. But weve got to keep our standards high.Yes, we have to win nearly every game. But if were selling ourselves short on that theres no point turning up at all.Were here to make the finals. Johnny Bench Jersey . Dusautoir, the former World Player of the Year, sustained a torn bicep playing for Toulouse in the Heineken Cup on Saturday. The flanker, who has played 65 times for France, is expected to be out for up to four months. Brandon Finnegan Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. . -- The goal posts lying flat on the field, Arizonas fans lingered on the field, congregating around the locker room entrance nearly 30 minutes after rushing out of the stands. Barry Larkin Jersey . -- Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg. Homer Bailey Jersey . The mixed zone is not a place to make friends. MIAMI -- Sunday at Marlins Park wouldve been a great pitching matchup ... and it still might be, just without the marquee billing.The originally scheduled duel between the Miami Marlins and the Chicago White Sox called for a pair of All-Stars -- right-hander Jose Fernandez for the home team and left-hander Chris Sale for the visitors.But when the Marlins decided to rest Fernandez -- skipping him until next Friday to afford him more rest -- the marquee was trashed.Fernandez, who is 26-2 with a 1.62 ERA at Marlins Park, would have been a tough matchup for Sale. But Fernandez, who is on pace for 185 innings in this his first full year after elbow surgery, was held back. The goal is to keep him at about 180 innings this year.Instead of Fernandez, Sale will match pitches with Marlins right-hander Tom Koehler, who has been dominant in his past four starts, going 3-0 with a 0.67 ERA.Hes been our best starter the past month, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said of Koehler.The White Sox (56-60) will go for a three-game sweep over the Marlins (60-56) on Sunday. With Saturdays loss, the Marlins moved a half-game behind the St. Louis Cardinals in the race for the second and final NL wild-card playoff berth.Making matters tougher for the Marlins will be Sale, who will be making his fourth start since his behavior cost him a five-day suspension.On July 23, while the rest of the team was taking batting practice, Sale used a knife to cut up several of his teams throw-back unifforms.ddddddddddddSince coming back, Sale is 0-2 with a 3.00 ERA.He is better than that, historically, in terms of winning games, posting a career record of 71-45 with a 2.95 ERA.It will be interesting to see how he does in his first game at Marlins Park. Sale is a native Floridian, and his hometown of Lakeland is a four-hour car-ride away.Sale, 27, still has nasty stuff. At 6 feet 6, 180 pounds, his fastball gets on hitters in a hurry, which is why he was a first-round pick -- No. 13 overall -- in 2010.He made it to the majors that same year and started a dominant run in 2012. Since that season, he is a five-time All-Star. He has also finished in the top 10 in the American League in ERA and strikeouts four years in a row. This year, he could extend both streaks.The White Sox are confident that Sale can turn things around.We have a good clubhouse right now, White Sox catcher Dioner Navarro said after Saturdays 8-7 victory over Miami. Were confident in Chris. Were confident in all our guys.Sales job Sunday could be made easier because of an apparent groin injury suffered by Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who had three hits -- including a homer -- and three RBI on Saturday.Stanton pulled up lame on the final out of the game, grabbing his left side.Theyre looking at something in his groin area, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said.
