time to cap the scoring.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. [b]Jared Cook Jersey[/b] . - The Royals have been so busy this off-season they gave out two No. 15 jerseys in one week.The latest player to don that number is Alex Rios, who signed an $11 million, one-year deal Friday that includes a mutual option for the 2016 season. Rios will take over right field for Nori Aoki, who departed in free agency, and should give the Royals a big boost of power.His signing comes days after designated hitter Kendrys Morales signed a $17 million, two-year deal. Morales had also slipped on a white No. 15 jersey, though apparently some back-room brokering took place so that Rios will be able to wear his first big league number again.He didnt ask for anything, Rios said with a smile, but Ill use my imagination.Rios, who is coming off an injury plagued season in Texas, will make $9.5 million this season. His deal includes $12.5 million the following year with a $1.5 million buyout.Ive been coming here for quite a long time, Rios said during a news conference Friday at Kauffman Stadium. I see this is a young group of guys moving forward in the right direction. I think it was the right fit for me at this time.Rios, who turns 34 in February, had been with Texas since August 2013 and hit .280 this year with four homers and 54 RBIs. He set career highs with the White Sox in 2012 with 25 homers and 91 RBIs.Selected by Toronto with the 19th overall pick in the 1999 amateur draft, Rios has a .278 average in 11 big league seasons. But more importantly to Kansas City, which hit a major league-low 95 homers last season, Rios has pounded 165 home runs over the course of his career.Alex fits our ballpark, our style of play, Royals general manager Dayton Moore said. Hes going to be able to range well for us in the outfield. I believe hes capable of hitting 40-plus doubles in this ballpark and no doubt his home run totals will improve.The two-time All-Star has been linked to the Royals in the past, but their ability to get him on the open market on a one-year deal allows them flexibility in the future. It also gives them a bit of protection if Rios is unable to come back from injuries that curtailed last season.I played through the second half of the season with two injuries, actually. I had a bad ankle and my thumb was swollen up and I had to get surgery, Rios said. I believe it did affect me a little bit. I didnt want to use it as an excuse, but I really believe it affected my performance during the second half. I believe if I was health, I could have done better.Rios insists hes healthy now. The Royals are banking on it, too.Kansas City has been busy since ending a 29-year playoff drought by taking the San Francisco Giants to Game 7 of the World Series. Along with signing Rios and Morales to pump up the offence, the Royals have signed right-hander Kris Medlen and are nearing a deal with right-hander Edinson Volquez.Medlen, who signed an $8.5 million, two-year deal Thursday, is coming off his second Tommy John surgery. The Royals hope he will be able to contribute during the second half of the season.Volquez is close to signing a $20 million, two-year deal to fill the spot in the Royals rotation that staff ace James Shields had occupied. Shields is expected to sign elsewhere as a free agent.The Royals announced a couple of other minor moves on Friday, waiving outfielder Carlos Peguero to carve out roster space for Rios and trading second baseman Johnny Giavotella to the Angels for the rights to right-handed reliever Brian Broderick.Giavotella had been designated for assignment on Thursday.We know full well well have to continue to make adjustments on our roster. Its not a push-button club, it never was, Moore said. But right now, we feel like were in a good position to start spring training and to start the season. [b]Gareon Conley Jersey[/b] . Nat Borchers headed in the sole goal in the 54th minute, getting on the end of a Kyle Beckerman free kick. The defeat cost Sporting top spot in the Eastern Conference. Even a draw would have moved the Kansas City club above Columbus. [b]Brandon LaFell Jersey[/b] . The Kings paraded the Stanley Cup through downtown Los Angeles on Monday to celebrate their second NHL title in three seasons.East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Ben Roethlisberger carved up the Indianapolis Colts secondary last week. Eli Manning didnt have as much luck. Andrew Luck tossed three of his four touchdown passes in the third quarter, Manning completed just 12 of his first 29 throws and the Colts cruised to a 40-24 win over the New York Giants on Monday night. The Colts struggled mightily once Vontae Davis exited last Sundays game with a knee injury, surrendering 522 yards and six touchdowns to Big Ben en route to a 51-34 defeat. With the physical corner back in the lineup, however, Manning struggled to find open targets. Manning finished 27-of-52 with most of his 359 yards coming with the game already decided in the fourth quarter. Both of his TD passes came in the final frame. We tried to take a couple of shots down the field. We just didnt connect on any, Manning said. Luck added to his NFL-leading passing yardage total and tallied his franchise-record seventh straight 300-yard game with 354 on 25-of-46 efficiency for Indianapolis (6-3), which has won six of its last seven games since an 0-2 start. T.Y. Hilton hauled in three passes for 71 yards and a touchdown, Reggie Wayne posted four receptions for 70 yards and a score and Dwayne Allen had four catches for 48 yards and a score in the triumph. First-round rookie Odell Beckham tallied eight receptions for 156 yards for the Giants (3-5), who have dropped three in a row on the heels of a three-game winning streak. The Colts led 16-3 at the break, but put the game out of reach in the third. Hilton came down with a jump ball in the right part of the end zone against Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the Colts opening touch of the frame to make it 23-3. Rodgers-Cromartie high pointed the pass, but Hilton wrestled it away from him as the two were cooming down to the ground to complete the 31-yard TD reception. [b]Marshawn Lynch Jersey[/b]. Beckhams 59-yard catch and run led to an Andre Williams 1-yard TD plunge on New Yorks ensuing touch, but the Colts closed the frame with two more touchdowns. Wayne hauled in a post corner along the left sideline and broke free from Giants cornerback Jayron Hosley en route to a 40-yard touchdown. After Colts safety Sergio Brown recovered a Manning fumble forced by linebacker Jonathan Newsome, Luck flipped a 2-yard TD pass to Allen two plays later to make it 37-10. Adam Vinatieri booted a 43-yard field goal early in the fourth before Larry Donnell and Corey Washington caught TD passes in garbage time to cap the scoring. Earlier, former Giant Hakeem Nicks hauled in a 22-yard completion on a deep cross, which led to a Vinatieri 48-yard field goal to open the scoring midway through the first, and consecutive receptions by Coby Fleener made it 10-0. Fleener caught a pass along the left sideline for 21 yards and following a quick snap -- it appeared Fleener may have been bobbling the catch -- he was left free along the right sideline and strolled in for an easy 32-yard score. Josh Brown and Vinatieri traded field goals of 38 and 31 yards, respectively, late in the second, and another Vinatieri boot right before the half, this one from 48 yards, staked Indy to its 16-3 halftime advantage. Game Notes Luck leads the NFL with 3,085 passing yards ... Another former Giant, Ahmad Bradshaw, carried the ball seven times for 50 yards ... The Colts were 5-of-15 on third down, while New York finished 4-of-16 ... Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara exited the game with a torn biceps ... Giants Hall of Famer Michael Strahan was honored at halftime ... Vinatieri is 20-for-20 on field-goal attempts this year.
