KANSAS CITY, Mo. Nike Roshe Run NM BR . -- All-Star closer Greg Holland agreed Wednesday with the Royals to a one-year contract worth $4,675,000, the final player to reach a deal among Kansas Citys players in arbitration. Holland had asked for $5.2 million in arbitration last month and the Royals had offered $4.1 million. They settled just over the midpoint rather than allow a three-person panel to pick one figure or the other, something that has never happened since general manager Dayton Moore took over the Royals baseball operations in 2006. Holland, who went 2-1 with a 1.21 ERA and a franchise-record 47 saves last season, will also earn a $50,000 bonus if hes selected for his second All-Star game. Moore said Monday that he was confident a deal would get done with Holland, who was eligible for arbitration for the first time, but that he wasnt against going to a hearing. "We havent experienced that since weve been here, but its not by design," Moore said. Moore also considered it a good sign the Royals had numerous players eligible for arbitration this year. They had previously reached one-year deals with first baseman Eric Hosmer, outfielder Justin Maxwell, catcher Brett Hayes and relief pitchers Tim Collins, Luke Hochevar and Aaron Crow. They also agreed to a deal with Emilio Bonifacio, who has since been waived. "I think its a reflection of a player, what theyve accomplished at this stage of their career, what kind of leverage they have," Moore said. "Getting a deal prior to a hearing is going to be more challenging going forward as long as we have players excelling and doing well." Pitchers and catchers are due to report to Surprise, Ariz., on Friday. The Royals first full-squad workout is Feb. 20 with their exhibition opener against Texas on Feb. 27. Holland assumed the closers role in Kansas City late in 2012, and he flourished last season, unleashing an overpowering fastball on an unsuspecting AL Central. He finished third in the majors in saves, and his strikeout rate of 13.84 per nine innings was among the best in baseball. While hes under club control through arbitration for two more years, Holland said during a recent interview that he would be open to discussing a long-term deal with Kansas City. "I love the town. I love the fans," he said. "Id really take a lot of pride in being here when we took the next step, making the playoffs and eventually winning a championship." Holland should once again serve as the bookend to one of the most dominant bullpens in the American League this season. Most of the key pieces are back from a group that went 33-24 with an AL-best 2.55 ERA and held opponents to a .217 batting average last season. "Greg is obviously one of the best closers in all of baseball," Crow said. "Whatever we have to do to get the ball to him in the ninth inning, well do. Doesnt matter whether you pitch the second inning or the eighth inning. We just want to give Greg an opportunity to get a save." Nike Roshe Run Breeze . Aside from the trilogy main event title fight, there are a number of intriguing matchups in the heavyweight, welterweight and lightweight divisions. Nike Roshe Run Noir Pas Cher . The win gives the Jets 66 points, same as Dallas and Vancouver. All three teams tied for the final playoff spot in the west. Phoenix is one point back, Nashville now four back of the Jets. http://www.airmax-2016.ca/nike-roshe-run-canada-sale.html . Watch the game live on TSN and TSN GO at 9pm et/6pm pt. The Thunder earned their first win of the set with Sundays 106-97 victory and Ibaka played a big role. After suffering a left calf strain against the Los Angeles Clippers in the previous round, Ibaka was ruled out for the remainder of the postseason. LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. 6 Louisvilles victory over Western Kentucky was his teammates assistance in overcoming the absence of starting point guard Chris Jones. Just as important was the timing of those contributions that put away the Hilltoppers. Smith had 14 points and 10 assists and Louisville shot 69 per cent from the field in the second half to pull away to a 79-63 victory on Saturday. With Jones sidelined at least a game with a sprained right wrist, the Cardinals (9-1) got numerous backcourt contributions to beat their in-state rival for the fifth straight time. Smith, Louisvilles leading scorer who has tried to involve teammates more this season, set the tone in both areas with five assists and nine points in the second half to finish with his second double-double in three games. Louisvilles bench outscored WKUs 33-20. "My job is just to perform on a daily basis and get my teammates involved," Smith said. "If shots arent falling, I have to find my teammates, play some great defence and help Louisville win some games." Freshman Terry Rozier grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds starting in Jones place while little-used senior reserve Tim Henderson -- whose consecutive 3-pointers helped Louisville rally past Wichita State in last springs national semifinal -- added career highs of 12 points on four 3-pointers and four assists in 22 minutes. "Im kind of used to that role, Ive had it for four years now," the walk-on said. "We have such a great group of people, a great group of guards who can all play well. "Its whatever Coach (Rick Pitino) feels like is going to work that game and how you match up with them. I guess he felt like I matched up well with this team and with Chris out." Their efforts helped Louisville pad a 31-28 halftime lead as the Cardinals made 13 of their first 21 attempts from the field after the break to build a 63-44 lead with 6:02 left. They shot 18 of 26 in the second half. Louisville held the Hilltoppers (5-4) scoreless for nearly 6 minutes. Mangok Mathiang added a career-high 13 points and Chane Behanan had 11 points and seven rebounds for Louisville, which shot 30 of 59 overall (51 per cent) after hitting just 36 per cent in the first half. Nike Air Max 2016 Solde. Wayne Blackshear added 12 points while senior forward Stephan Van Treese had five points with four rebounds, providing a presence for the Cardinals with Mathiang hampered by three fouls. Pitino praised Smith, his senior tri-captain, for being the catalyst. "Until you knock the young man off of his throne, hes the premier player in college basketball," Pitino said. "(Its a) biased opinion by me, but I think he is because he has made every change. "Two years ago, I needed him to carry the team on his back, he did. Now, I need him to pass the basketball and take good shots, he does." T.J. Prices 22 points led WKU, which shot just 36 per cent and was outscored 36-14 inside. Brandon Harris, coming off a career-high 30-point game at Southern Illinois, finished with four points. Louisville improved to 38-39 all-time against WKU in a series that both coaches want to continue even though its programs are headed to new leagues next season. The Cardinals will leave the American Athletic Conference to join the Atlantic Coast Conference while the Hilltoppers will move from the Sun Belt to Conference USA. The Cardinals collective effort beat back a Western Kentucky team that came in a little deeper after transfers Trency Jackson and Chris Harrison-Docks became eligible on Friday. WKU coach Ray Harper promised to play both extensively and even started Jackson at guard in a strong lineup featuring leading scorer Price (15.6 points) and George Fant (13.9). Harrison-Docks finished with 10 points and Jackson had six. Star players were mostly secondary in a tight first half featuring four ties and eight lead changes before Louisville rallied twice from four-point deficits for its narrow edge at the break. Blackshear scored the Cardinals final eight points of the half including consecutive 3-pointers. Louisville opened the second half with a 14-5 run for a 45-33 lead that eventually reached 21. "I thought the first half we did good job of keeping the pace a little slower," Harper said. "Second half, I thought they dictated pace, got out and got some easy baskets." cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
