The Columbus Blue Jackets signed three players to two-way contracts to fill out their depth charts.

The three are defenseman Grant Clitsome and forwards Tom Sestito and Chad Kolarik.

The two-way contracts simply mean that a player will make a certain figure when they’re in the NHL and for less money when they’re playing with Springfield in the minors.

The 25-year-old Clitsome made his NHL debut in 2009-2010, playing 11 games for the Blue Jackets at the end of the season. He had one goal, two assists and an even rating ans six penalty minutes.

Kolarik, who was acquired in an early March trade with Phoenix, also made his NHL debut in 2009-2010. He played in two games without gaining any points.

The 22-year-old Sestito, spent most his season in Syracuse, and was saddled with numerous injuries for the second straight season. He played three games with Columbus and garnered seven penalty minutes.

Amare Stoudemire agrees to sign with the Knicks; hopes to persuade others

compiled from staff and wire reports

Amare Stoudemire has left the Valley of the Sun for the glitz, glamour, ballyhoo and the Island of Manhattan, New York and the Knickerbockers basketball team.

The Knicks management said on Monday that they intend to sign Stoudemire to a contract this week when the free agent moratorium period ends. Amare’s agent, Happy Walters, said the deal is for the maximum allowed, which would be as much as $100 million over five years.

Stoudemire, wearing a New York Knicks hat, said he is looking forward to rebuilding the long-time downtrodden franchise and helping to bring the team back to the top by helping to persuade Chris Bosh, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade to the team.

The agreement has Stoudemire reuniting with his former Phoenix coach Mike D’Antoni.

Stoudemire’s deal cant’ be signed until Thursday, after next season’s cap is set.

The signing of at least one big-name free agent was needed by New York, who spent two seasons clearing enough cap space to afford two top players.

Rumor has it that Wade, James and Bosh don’t plan on signing with the Knicks.

Pacific 10 Conference extends invitation and Utah accepts without hesitation

compiled from staff and wire reports

Utah’s road to the BCS  has just received a helping hand and a big boost.

As the Pac-10′s newest member, the utes will be playing for a guarenteed spot in one of college football’s elite bowl games rather than hoping and relying on upsets to get in as an at-large team playing in the Mountain West Conference.

Utah officially joined the Pacific 10 Conference on Thursday, leaving behind the Mountain West Conference for the more lucrative opportunities of a league that has access to the Heisman Trophy, Final Four and national titles are all possible instead of dreams.

The Pacific 10 offered Utah to join the league on Wednesday and University President Michael Young officially signed the agreement in front of a crowd of boosters on Thursday.

After playing one final season in the Mountain West this coming fall, Utah will join the Pac-10 in 2011.

The announcement by Utah was held at Rice-Eccles Stadium, where the Utes have enjoyed two undefeated seasons in the past six years. The utes received invitations to the Bowl Championship Series in 2004 and 2008, but they were at-large berths.

Michael Young reminded the media and fans that the Utes are 7-3 against the Pac-10 in the last 10 meetings, including wins over Arizona in 2004 and Oregon State four years ago during Utah’s two unbeaten runs to the BCS.

The gigantic leap by Utah takes them from the Mountain West, where national television are rare, to the major markets of the Pacific-10, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Phoenix.

Utah was the only unbeaten team in 2008, and didn’t even get a chance to play in the BCS title game. A rout of Alabama in the Sugar Bowl helped Utah’s claims of being more than worthy. The Utes ended up finishing number 2 in the final AP poll, the school’s highest finish ever.

Reds beat Royals 11-5 as Gomes belts two three-run homers


CINCINNATI, OHIO — Reds left fielder Jonny Gomes who is starting to become popular with the fans, cracked two, long three-run homers in his first two at bats for a career-high six RBI’s, leading the slugging Cincinnati Reds to an 11-5 win over the pesky Kansas City Royals Saturday night on Scott Rolen bobblehead night.

The Reds now lead the NL Central by 1 1/2 games due to Arizona defeating the St. Louis Cardinals, 7-2 out in the Valley of the sun, Phoenix.

Jonny Gomes had angered some fans by misjudging a three-run double off the bat of David DeJesus in the second inning which allowed the Royals to go up 5-4 briefly.

Hot-hitting Brandon Phillips had three hits, including his eighth homer of the season, to extend his hitting streak to 15 games-Cincinnati’s longest of the season and the longest current streak in the majors.

The Reds overcame and survived another shaky start by Johnny Cueto to snap a four-game losing streak against Kansas City. But Cueto took the win extending his winning streak to 6 games, covering 9 games to go to 6-1.

Right-hander Brian Bannister (6-4) was pounded by the NL’s number offense for 11 runs-10 earned- on 10 hits with two walks and two strikeouts while throwing 77 pitches, 45 for strikes. He saw his personal five-start winning streak come to an end.

By allowing 3 home runs last night, Bannister has allowed 14 home runs this season tying him for 2nd in the American League with Rich Harden of Texas. He has allowed at least 1 homer in 11 of his 13 starts this season.

Bannister said that he made a big mistake of trying to pitch in the humid, 86-degree weather on an empty stomach.

The Reds opened the scoring with four runs in the first inning, with Phillips hitting his eighth homer of the season and Gomes hitting his eighth homer.

The Royals, always a pesky team who can definitely hit the ball, bounced up off the mat with five runs in the second inning, one on Bannister’s double to right-center field and three on David DeJesus’ bases-loaded double to left field that lined over the head of Gomes after he made the initial mistake of taking a step toward the infield and then had to retreat backwards and leap for the ball.

Gomes put the Reds back on top at 7-5 in the third with his second homer of the game and 12th of his career against the Royals, more than he has hit against any other team. The eighth multihomer game of his career prompted the crowd to cheer for a curtain call, which he obliged.

Gomes leads the Reds with 47 RBI’s, four short of the 51 he drove in all of last year abd 12 shy of tying the career high of 59 he set with Tampa Bay in 2006.
