Game Mens Wilt Chamberlain Jersey The Tampa Bay Rays have agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with outfielder Carlos Gomez, MLB.com reported Wednesday.
Gomez, who turned 32 in December, appeared in 105 games for Texas last season and was the primary center fielder after All-Star Ian Desmond left in free agency. Gomez is expected to play right field in Tampa.
The Orange’s thin roster accurately reflects its NCAA profile. A Feb. 5 win at Louisville is currently Syracuse’s only Group 1 victory and a pair of sub-100 losses to Wake Forest and Georgia Tech look like serious missed opportunities in mid-February. The Womens Tyler Ennis Jersey same applies to Wednesday’s home loss to N.C. State, which featured a late Orange rally before they simply ran out of gas. Hope remains in the form of four Group 1 games the rest of the way, with two at home (North Carolina and Clemson). Starting the closing stretch by topping inconsistent Miami in Coral Gables on Saturday would be quite helpful for Jim Boeheim’s crew.
Time is running out on the 14 teams above. Like Boise State, Colorado (falling at Washington State on Thursday), Mississippi State (stunned at Vanderbilt Wednesday), Oregon (also beaten at the buzzer at USC), SMU (losers of four in a row) and Maryland (whose bubble might have been popped by Nebraska on Tuesday) did themselves no favors this week. On the flip side, the Cornhuskers keep on winning, which they must continue to do with their weak schedule, while Georgia’s win at Florida put the Bulldogs back in the hunt.
Sam Miller: The premise we’re going with today is that we will see him sometime, but man is it hard to see it: Tim Tebow is miles and miles away from being good enough to play in the majors; he will almost certainly never get good enough to make the majors; if he played in the majors, it would be nothing more than a stunt, and Sandy Alderson, his general manager, is not a general manager known for treating official major league baseball games like a stunt.
We can’t know why Alderson said he thinks Tebow will make the majors — note that he used a lot of hedge words: think, guess, hope — but a reasonable explanation is the Mets want to make a lot of money by having Tebow in big league spring training, and the more seriously they persuade fans to take this, the more money they probably make.
