Im glad we came out on top

SAN FRANCISCO -- Tim Lincecum is staying put with the San Francisco Giants just as he hoped, reaching agreement Tuesday on a $35 million, two-year contract through the 2015 season. Nike Air Max 90 Nettbutikk . The deal is pending a physical, which had yet to be scheduled. Lincecum has a full no-trade clause in the new deal. General manager Brian Sabean said when the season ended that among his top priorities was bringing back the two-time NL Cy Young Award winner, who also indicated he cherishes familiarity and wanted stay with the only club he has known. He pitched the Game 5 clincher in the 2010 World Series at Texas, then shifted to the bullpen and became a reliable reliever during the Giants 2012 run to their second title in three years. He pitched a no-hitter July 13 at San Diego. Sabean wanted to lock up Lincecums deal before he hit the open market in free agency. The 29-year-old Lincecum just completed a $40.5 million, two-year contract that paid him $22 million this past season. The Giants, who missed the playoffs at 76-86, already took care of their first order of business by signing right fielder Hunter Pence to a $90 million, five-year contract before the season ended. He played every game this year. Lincecum, the 10th overall draft pick by San Francisco in 2006 out of Washington, has had losing records in each of the past three seasons but manager Bruce Bochy has expressed encouragement with the pitchers progress to make changes to not only his delivery and mechanics but also his between-start routine and fitness. After his final start of the season Sept. 26 against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers, the four-time All-Star reflected on the idea of a possible departure. Many thought he might listen to his hometown Seattle Mariners if they came calling. The Giants didnt let that happen, knowing someone would sign Lincecum in a hurry despite all the ups and downs. "Ive just been one of the most fortunate pitchers in this organization just to be a part of so many things," said Lincecum, who won the Cy Young in 2008 and 09. "To have the guys around me, Barry Bonds, Randy Johnson, big names, Buster Posey coming up, Pablo Sandoval. The names just dont end. To be here to witness all the things theyve done, and be there for also the team things, its been pretty special for me." Lincecum went 10-14 with a 4.37 ERA and 193 strikeouts in 32 starts this season. The right-hander joined Hall of Famers Juan Marichal and Gaylord Perry and also Kirk Rueter as the only Giants in San Francisco history to win at least 10 games in six straight seasons. Nicknamed The Freak, Lincecum is 89-70 with a 3.46 ERA over seven major league seasons. With fans unsure whether he would return beyond 2013, his supporters held signs during his last start such as, "Timmy Dont Leave" and "SF Loves You!" He tipped his cap -- a rare gesture for him. "It was pretty special," Lincecum said at the time. "Just to be in that kind of like situation today, you kind of really see whats going on and the emotions that are tied with it. Im still trying to figure out how to handle it." New Balance 574 Sko . Catch the game live on TSN2 at 9pm et/6pm pt.

But Salt Lake head coach Jason Kreis thinks the quick turnaround will benefit his team. Nike Free 5.0 Herre Sort . A person familiar with the agreement told The Associated Press on Saturday that Cruz will earn about $8.5 million, and can make more in performance bonuses. FRISCO, Texas -- Canadian womens head coach John Herdmann says hes tired of seeing his team lose to the United States. Winless against its arch rival since 2001, Canada dropped its latest contest -- a friendly between the two nations on Friday night -- 1-0 on a goal by Canadian-born Sydney Leroux. "Were disappointed because were sick of saying good try, well done, and we battled hard," Herdmann said. "At some point weve got to beat this team and if its not now, then when? And hopefully its (at the Womens World Cup) in 2015." Leroux, who is a U.S. citizen, scored in the 78th minute to break a scoreless tie against Canada and give the U.S. the victory in both teams 2014 opener. It was Lerouxs fourth goal in the past three games, with two of them coming against the country of her birth. "I love to watch her," Herdmann said. "Shes a phenomenal player and shes great to watch ... and she scores against us. Ive just told her (after the game) to stop doing that, man. You do it against anyone else but not us." The game looked as if it was going to be a scoreless draw before Lerouxs late offence, largely thanks to strong play by Canadian goalkeeper Erin McLeod and no clear goal chances for the U.S. "I always hope that were going to get one," said Leroux, who was stopped several times in the first half. "Thats kind of how we play, and we push to the very last second. Im just happy that we came out on top of the game 1-0. It was a good game. It was physical and Im glad we came out on top." The Americans sent plenty of chances into the zone, but McLeod calmly caught and parried several crosses. But in the 78th minute, a bit of nifty footwork gave the U.S. the lead. Becky Sauerbrunn started a run with the ball outside the 18-yard box, fed the ball to substitute Christen Press and then immediately got it back, going towward the right post. New Balance 574 Norge. Press then weaved a pass through McLeod and defenders Kadeisha Buchanan and Sura Yekka to find Leroux waiting all alone 3 yards. Leroux one-timed the ball with the inside of her left foot for the game-winner. The Americans extended their home unbeaten streak to 78 games (68-0-10). The U.S., ranked No. 1 in the world, also remains undefeated under second-year coach Tom Sermanni (14-0-3), and is a perfect 11-0 all time when playing in Texas. The win marks a strong start to a World Cup qualifying year for the Americans. CONCACAF qualifying is at the end of the year, and the U.S. should be favourites to emerge out of the region. Canada, the hosts the 2015 Womens World Cup, automatically qualifies for the tournament. The 20,862 fans at FC Dallas home stadium were the largest crowd since 2003. "I was a bit anxious about this game because we havent played a game for a long time," said Sermanni, whose team hadnt played since a 4-1 victory against Brazil. "The players have had time off. Canada has played some international recently." The Americans thought they took the lead in the 38th minute when defender Whitney Engen popped in a headed pass, but she was called offside by about 6 yards. Canadian midfielder Josee Belanger took possession at the top of the U.S. zone moments after Engens offside and dinked the ball through two American defenders to Diana Matheson. U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo cut down the angle and Mathesons cross-body chip from about 6 yards trickled past the far post to preserve the scoreless half. It was Solos only test of the first half, and she didnt have to make a save until diving to her right in the 87th minute to stop Jonelle Filigno and preserve the shutout. "You know theyre going to score," Herdmann said. "Ive never known a game where the U.S. doesnt score." wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap soccer jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys china ' ' '
