NEW YORK, N. http://www.officialraidersgear.com/Raiders-Ej-Manuel-Draft-Jersey/ .Y. - Eager to go on a long-overdue playoff run, the New York Mets realized they owed their pitching staff — and fans — a proven hitter.On Monday, they got one.The Mets made baseballs first splash of the off-season, agreeing with two-time All-Star outfielder Michael Cuddyer on a two-year deal worth $21 million.Michael is a tremendous addition to the middle of our lineup, general manager Sandy Alderson said in a statement.The 2013 NL batting champion became the first top free agent to switch teams since the World Series. Cuddyer, who turns 36 in March, had until later in the day to decide whether to accept a $15.3 million qualifying offer from Colorado.Sandy has talked about were looking to turn the corner here and start to compete in 2015, Mets assistant general manager John Ricco told reporters at the GM meetings in Arizona.I think this is a message that were going to be aggressive. Right out of the box we had a guy we liked, and we went and got him, he said.When hes healthy, Cuddyer hits. Even when hes hurt, he still swings a serious bat.Cuddyer batted .332 with 10 home runs and 31 RBIs this year in a season interrupted by injuries.He was limited to 49 games and was on the disabled list three times because of a strained left shoulder and a strained left hamstring. From mid-April to early September, he spent of a part of each month on the DL.He took a physical today. Weve looked at all the injuries and there was nothing there that we were too concerned about, Ricco said. And the age is the age. Certainly theres risk associated with any signing.The Mets went 79-83 last season, their sixth straight losing year since moving into Citi Field. They are hoping to contend for their first playoff spot since 2006, boosted by a strong rotation helped by the return of ace Matt Harvey from Tommy John surgery.Hours after Cuddyer joined the Mets, Jacob deGrom won the NL Rookie of the Year award.Im really looking forward to next year, with Harvey returning and just being a part of that staff. And then signing a bat like that, l think next year is going to be exciting, deGrom said.New York hit .239 last year, 28th in the majors, and wanted to add a hitter or two this off-season. Their fans pointed to another stat — playing in a major market, they finished the regular season 21st in payroll at under $93 million — and hoped the team would spend what it took to improve.Cuddyer made 35 starts in right field last year, along with 11 at first base and two at third.He joins a lineup where Daniel Murphy was the leading hitter at .289. All-Star third baseman David Wright had a down season and finished with an injured shoulder, while first baseman Lucas Duda provided pop with 30 home runs.Wright and Cuddyer are friends from the same region of Virginia, and have spent offseasons working out together and playing racquetball.In the Mets outfield, Juan Lagares won a Gold Glove last week in centre. Curtis Granderson hit .227 with 20 homers while mostly playing right and Chris Young, Eric Young Jr. and several others shared left.Cuddyer hit .331 with the Rockies in 2013, along with 20 home runs and 84 RBIs. He was the NLs starting designated hitter in the All-Star game that year at Citi Field.The Mets are moving in the fences in right field at Citi Field for next season. A right-handed hitter, Cuddyer has sprayed the ball around over the years.Cuddyer is a .279 hitter with a .347 on-base percentage in 14 seasons with Colorado and Minnesota. He hit a career-high 32 homers in 2009 with the Twins.In his three years with the Rockies, he batted .329 at hitter-friendly Coors Field and .286 on the road.This is a guy who is a professional hitter, Ricco said. Hes been in both leagues and had success everywhere.Cuddyer played in the post-season in six years with Minnesota, hitting .338 in 22 playoff games.He will get $8.5 million next season and $12.5 million in 2016.By signing Cuddyer, the Mets lose their first-round draft pick in June, the 15th choice overall.Colorado gets an extra pick between the first and second round.The Rockies lost 96 games last season, second-most in the majors to Arizonas 98, with Carlos Gonzalez, Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson in the outfield along with Cuddyer. http://www.officialraidersgear.com/Raiders-Amari-Cooper-Draft-Jersey/ .ca. Mr. Fraser, It looks like Martin Brodeur is coming back to play for the Blues. I was wondering if you have any great stories or fond memories of your time on the ice with Brodeur - in the NHL, or maybe even the Olympics. Jack Tatum Jersey .J. -- Having Ondrej Pavelec earn his 100th NHL win and seeing Mark Scheifele and Evander Kane break goal droughts were nice highlights for the Winnipeg Jets. http://www.officialraidersgear.com/Raiders-Howie-Long-Draft-Jersey/ .5 million, two-year contract with the San Francisco Giants on Thursday, a deal that covers his final two arbitration seasons. MINNEAPOLIS -- Hours after trading Vidal Nuno to Arizona for Brandon McCarthy and cutting outfielder Alfonso Soriano, the New York Yankees took a nine-run lead by the fourth inning and seemed set for a laugher at Target Field. The game ended with the potential go-ahead run at the plate. Jacoby Ellsbury homered, doubled and drove in four runs as Yankees beat the Minnesota Twins 9-7 Sunday after their roster shakeup and moved back above .500 at 44-43. "Sometimes you cant really pinpoint it, but we like where were at right now," Ellsbury said. "Hopefully keep it rolling." Derek Jeter and Ichiro Suzuki each had three hits for the Yankees, who have won 14 of 18 overall at Target Field. Jeters ninth-inning single made him the eighth player to reach 3,400 hits. "We pay a little bit of attention, but I dont think he pays too close attention to it," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Obviously, hes going to end up way up there in record books. He pays more attention to wins, and thats what we worry about." New York took three of four from the Twins after losing nine of its previous 11. The 38-year-old Soriano is in the final year of a $136 million, eight-year contract he signed with the Chicago Cubs, who traded him last summer to the Yankees, where he began his big league career. He was hitting .221 this season with six homers and 23 RBIs in 67 games. New York has 10 days to trade Soriano or place him on unconditional waivers. "Hes a guy thats used to playing every day," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Wasnt every day for him. Maybe it was harder for him to get going, not sure. Im sure hes extremely disappointed." New York catcher Brian McCann returned to the lineup after missing two games because of a sore foot and doubled home Jeter in the first. Ellsburys three-run homer off Ricky Nolasco (5-7) capped a four-run burst in the second that made it 6-0. Hiroki Kuroda (6-6) allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 2-3 innings, his poorest outing since mid-June. Minnesotta closed with four runs in the fourth, and one in each of the last three innings. Marshawn Lynch Jersey. After Oswaldo Arcias two-out RBI single pulled the Twins within two runs and left runners at the corners, David Robertson got Kurt Suzuki to hit a grounder to shortstop, where Jeter threw to second baseman Brian Roberts for the final out. Robertson got his 21st save in 23 chances. Jeter drove in two runs in his last scheduled game at Minnesota, although hes expected back later this month for the All-Star game. Nolasco lasted a season-low two innings as Minnesota lost for the 10th time in 13 games. "They hit everything he threw up there," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "We got to go better than that. He did nothing for us today. He didnt give us a chance." Trevor Plouffe had an RBI double in the fourth and Chris Colabello followed with a two-run homer, his second home run in three games since his recall from the minors. Plouffe added a solo home run in the eighth. "Cant keep getting behind like this. It just gets back to that," Gardenhire said. "Its the starting pitching. Its not about anything other than that. Weve been struggling scoring runs. We finally put some on the board. But you start a game 6-0, thats no way to play baseball." NOTES: Twins OF Byron Buxton, among the top prospects in the minors, played his first game with Class A Fort Myers after being sidelined with a sprained left wrist. Minnesota GM Terry Ryan said Buxton will play centre field and get two or three at-bats as he works his way back. ... RHP Bruce Billings, recalled Sunday from from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, appears set to start Monday at Cleveland in place of Nuno.
