SAN DIEGO - The New York Yankees never made an offer to re-sign closer David Robertson, preferring to add Andrew Miller and get an extra draft pick next June. [url=http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Josh-Sweat-Jersey/]Josh Sweat Jersey[/url] .Robertson agreed late Monday to a $46 million, four-year contract with the Chicago White Sox, a person familiar with the negotiations said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.Yankees general manager Brian Cashman revealed Tuesday he had no interest in retaining Robertson once New York agreed Friday to a $36 million, four-year deal with Miller.The Miller acquisition with the draft pick was the best route we think and I think of moving forward, regardless of how great Robertson has been as a setup man and a closer this past year, Cashman said. It might not be the popular decision but I think its the best one.When the Yankees announced Millers agreement Friday, Cashman didnt rule out keeping Robertson.I wanted him to maximize his free-agent value, to be honest, not that he needs any help from me, Cashman said, but I felt it was in his interest to get out the Yankees still (being) in it.Cashman met Monday with Robertsons agent, Scott Leventhal.Is there a Yankee price you want me to consider? Cashman recalled asking. And he just said, If youre interested, make me an offer.They never made me an offer, Cashman added. I never made them one.Robertson, a right-hander who turns 30, had spent his seven-year big league career with the Yankees. He took over from Mariano Rivera as New Yorks closer last season and saved 39 games in 44 chances.Im happy for him, because I feel like relievers get one shot usually at a long-term contract, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.New Yorks remaining bullpen options include Miller, Dellin Betances, Shawn Kelley, Adam Warren and Justin Wilson. None has been a regular closer.We feel that our bullpen is going to be very strong again, Girardi said. Trying to iron out a closer, thats something well have to do. Im not really worried about that because of the arms that we have down there.Robertsons exit follows Robinson Canos departure last off-season for Seattle, which gave him a $240 million, 10-year deal. With the retirements of Rivera after the 2013 season and Derek Jeter this year, outfielder Brett Gardner becomes the Yankees senior homegrown player.I would think the fan base is connected to the pinstripes and hopefully the winning teams that we always intend to put on the field, Cashman said.

[url=http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Haloti-Ngata-Jersey/]Haloti Ngata Eagles Jersey[/url] . The Boston Celtics hadnt played since the All-Star break. So the Suns 100-94 victory over Boston Wednesday night was an uphill affair, with Phoenix relying on balance rather than its trademark high energy. [url=http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Haloti-Ngata-Jersey/]http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Haloti-Ngata-Jersey/[/url] . The Italian side scored twice in a four-minute span in the second half to defeat former stars from S.Awesome NCAA Tournament so far! Cant wait for the final six days of coverage on TSN. Enjoy! I know Im loving it. Tyler Ennis and Andrew Wiggins are out yet other Canadian players are having a big impact on their respective teams appearance in the Sweet Sixteen. Lets take a quick look at these impact guys. 1. NIK STAUSKAS (Michigan): Has made seven three-pointers so far and is averaging 16 points with a really sweet eight assists vs. Texas in the Round of 32. Love how hes playing. Wonderful shooter who can get his game off the bounce going as well. Nifty passer with a real keen sense of how to play. Much improved from 12 months ago. Plays with great enthusiasm and energy. 2. DYSHAWN PIERRE (Dayton): Averaging 13 ppg and 7 rpg with major plays in both the Ohio State and Syracuse upsets. Hes explosive off the bounce, can shoot the three, gets after it on the glass and guards. Plays with terrific poise. Huge FTs in both games. Love his presence on the floor and plays within himself making the right plays. Really impressed me. 3. DWIGHT POWELL and STEFAN NASTIC (Stanford): Have averaged between them 19 ppg and 10 rpg. Both play with lots of bounce in their step and love the energy. Their size and athleticism really frustrated Kansas on SSunday. [url=http://www.eaglesrookiestore.com/Eagles-Avonte-Maddox-Jersey/]Avonte Maddox Eagles Jersey[/url]. Hard-nosed defenders who battle for you every possession. Physical on the glass and set hard screens. Both are seniors and play a smart/polished game. 4. KENNY CHERRY & BRADY HESLIP (Baylor): The Canadian backcourt combined for 31 points and six assists in their upset win over Creighton. They also made nine three-point shots! Heslip was 10-for-10 on FTs in their opening round game as well. Both upperclassmen play at a nice pace and can hurt you in the transition game as well as in the half-court game. They play off of each other quite well and completely understand their roles and set up teammates beautifully. Nothing like having veteran players at your guard spots. 5. MELVIN EJIM and NAZ LONG (Iowa State): Ejim has been a significant guy for the Cyclones all year and he hasnt disappointed one bit in the NCAAs. Averaging 18ppg and 6 rpg and just refuses to lose. Major competitor with great athleticism and toughness. Makes whatever plays you need. Long was clutch against North Carolina making four threes and has deep range. With George Niang (16.2 ppg and 4.3 rpg) out for the remainder of the Tournament theyve needed everyone to play really well and these two havent let their team down one bit.
