    SAN FRANCISCO - After losing to the San Francisco Giants in the World Series, Nori Aoki joined them.The free agent outfielder agreed Friday to a $4.7 million, one-year contract with San Francisco, a person with knowledge of the agreement said.The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.Aoki gives the Giants a proven outfielder to join regular centre fielder Angel Pagan and right fielder Hunter Pence om the defending World Series champions. He also has the speed to bat leadoff if Pagan, who has battled injury the past two years, needs a break. He could share time in left field with Gregor Blanco.Aoki, who sought to join a contender where he could play regularly and liked the Bay Area culture and geographical location to his native Japan, gets a $4 million base salary this year, and the Giants have a $5.5 million option for 2016 with a $700,000 buyout. The option can become mutual, and the deal includes performance bonuses.Aoki, 33, hit .285 with a home run, six triples, 22 doubles and 43 RBIs over 132 games in his lone season with the Royals after two in Milwaukee. He also stole 17 bases.In addition, right-hander Yusmeiro Petit agreed to a $2.1 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration. Petit earned $845,000 last season.Manager Bruce Bochy has said Petit — a talented starter and dominant long man — might remain in the bullpen to begin next season because of his versatility. Petit set a major league record last season by retiring 46 consecutive batters over eight appearances from July 22 to Aug. 28.Petit entered in the 12th inning of a 2-1, 18-inning win at Washington in Game 2 of the NL Division Series and threw six shutout innings, allowing one hit and striking out seven for the win.He went 3-0 with a 1.42 ERA in four appearances while pitching in his first post-season. The Venezuelan star became the first relief pitcher to win three games in one post-season while going at least three innings in each appearance and not allowing a run. Victor Oladipo Jersey . Future Hall of Famer Ricky Ray is in his prime and back for a third season in double blue. The 34-year old was magnificent in 2013, throwing for just under 2,900 yards despite missing eight games, tossing an impressive 21 touchdowns against just two interceptions, completing 66 per cent of his passes in the process. Cory Joseph Jersey . -- On any given day here at his companys Silicon Valley headquarters, Vivek Ranadive is ready to compete against any employee who wants to challenge him to any contest. http://www.authenticbasketballshoppa...pacers-jersey/ . The Redblacks host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (7-9) Friday night in their last home game of the year and as of Thursday afternoon, the team was anticipating a ninth consecutive sellout. You can watch all the action on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, and TSN5 beginning at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. Joe Young Jersey . -- Atlanta Braves pitcher Tommy Hanson is being checked for a possible concussion after blowing a tire on his way to the first workout of spring training. T. J. Leaf Jersey . The 10-year deal the league and players agreed to that ended the 2011 lockout gave either side the right to opt out after six years. With the league projecting financial growth, there has been speculation that players will take that option in three years, especially since a new national TV contract will be in place by then.CINCINNATI - The AFC North race, just like so many Bengals games, is far from finished. Cincinnati has lost back-to-back games in overtime, wasting a chance to take a commanding lead in their division. Now the Bengals (6-4) are only one game ahead of the Ravens (4-5) and the Browns (4-5) in the loss column. Stirring comebacks have led to hollow endings in each of the past two games. And now, first place is no longer such a secure place. The Browns come to town on Sunday with a chance to sweep their season series and elbow their way into the front of the pack. "We pushed things forward very positively, now weve dug a little bit of a hole and weve got to climb out and play better this week against the Browns," coach Marvin Lewis said on Monday. Theyve become good at digging themselves out of holes, only to fall back in during overtime. They overcame a 17-3 deficit in the second half at Miami before losing 22-20 in overtime when Andy Dalton was sacked in the end zone for a safety. They overcame a 17-0 halftime deficit on Sunday at Baltimore, tying the game on A.J. Greens tipped catch with no time left in regulation. It wasnt enough as the Ravens won 20-17. Two strange endings. Rare ones, too. The Bengals are only the 16th team in NFL history to lose back-to-back games in overtime, according to STATS LLC. Miami was the last team to do it, dropping two in a row in OT last season. Cincinnati has played three overtime games this season, all on the road. The Bengals won in Buffalo 27-24, leaving them 1-2 in OT games. The NFL record for overtime games in a season is five by the 1983 Packers. Most overtime losses in a season? Three, by six different teams: 1983 Packers (2-3), 1983 Buccaneers (0-3), 1983 Oilers (0-3), 1997 Cardinals (1-3), 2010 Bills (0-3) and 2012 Jaguars (0-3). Theyre getting a lot of practice at it. "You cant simulate overtime," safety George Iloka said on Monday. "Weve had three overtime games this year, so that will come in handy later in the year with the P word, if were in that." He meant the playoffs. And Cincinnati is still in good position to get there. The Bengals have four of theirr last six games at home, where theyre 4-0.dddddddddddd They also have a bye week coming. Only one of the last six teams they play has a winning record — Indianapolis, which has to play at Paul Brown Stadium. "We know what we have in front of us," cornerback Terence Newman said. "We just have to win some football games." One of the common themes in the two has been the offences horrible start. The Bengals managed only three points total in the first half against Miami and Baltimore. Dalton has followed the best three-game stretch of his career with two subpar games. Dalton has completed only 54 per cent of his passes in the past two games with two touchdowns, four interceptions and 10 sacks. His combined passer rating for the two games is 64.9, well below average. He repeatedly sailed passes on Sunday and took a sack in the closing seconds, forcing the Bengals to make a desperation throw. The pass was swatted around before it deflected directly to Green, who was to the side of the scrum for a 51-yard touchdown catch that sent it to overtime. Dalton was 24 of 51 for 274 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions on Sunday. Lewis defended his quarterback, saying he made a "brilliant" play to spike the ball with 2 seconds left after taking a sack with no timeouts left. Lewis said his receivers dropped five passes that made things much tougher. He noted that rookie tight end Tyler Eifert couldnt make a diving catch in the end zone while getting hit, forcing the Bengals to settle for a field goal on the opening drive of the second half. "But the great location of the ball by Andy, just where it needs to be against a defence he saw — again, another great play by Andy," Lewis said. "Weve got to help him out and finish the deal." Notes: The Bengals signed DE Aston Whiteside, a first-year player from Abilene Christian who spent most of last season on Chicagos practice squad and was released by the Bears on Oct. 8. The Bengals released DE DeQuin Evans, who has spent part of the past three seasons on their practice squad. ___ AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
