FORT MYERS, Fla. Cheap Nike Vapormax Off White . -- Big Papi is staying put. David Ortiz and the Red Sox agreed to a 2015 contract Sunday with options for the following two years, a move that means the popular slugger will probably finish his career in Boston. Ortiz, the World Series MVP last season, has led the Red Sox to three championships in the past 10 years. He batted .309 with 30 home runs and 103 RBIs in 137 games last season after missing all of spring training while rehabbing a strained Achilles tendon. The 38-year-old designated hitter has 431 major league homers and has made nine All-Star teams in 11 years with Boston. The Red Sox announced the deal Sunday night. It includes a club or vesting option for 2016, and a club option for 2017. "With this agreement, we have near certainty that David Ortiz will finish his career in a Red Sox uniform, which is something we have all wanted and that we are all proud of," owner John Henry said in a statement. "It is difficult to describe Davids contributions to our city both on the field and off the field, and we are so proud to have this ambassador of our game with us as he continues on this road to Cooperstown." Multiple media outlets reported earlier that the sides had reached an agreement that guarantees Ortiz $16 million in 2015. He is set to earn $15 million this season as part of a two-year contract he signed in November 2012. The team said Ortiz, manager John Farrell and general manager Ben Cherington would be available to the media Monday in Sarasota before the Red Sox play the Baltimore Orioles. Big Papi batted .353 with five home runs and 13 RBIs in the 2013 post-season. He hit a clutch grand slam that swung the AL championship series against Detroit, then punctuated his performance with a dominant World Series against St. Louis. He went 11 for 16 (.688) with two homers, six RBIs and eight walks to leave him with the best World Series batting average (.455), on-base percentage (.576) and slugging percentage (.795) among players with at least 50 plate appearances. Ortiz ranked third in the majors with a .564 slugging percentage last season, and his .972 OPS over the past three years trails only Miguel Cabrera (1.036). Ortiz is a .287 career hitter with 520 doubles and 1,429 RBIs in 17 big league seasons with the Twins and Red Sox. He was voted MVP of the 2004 AL championship series, leading Bostons unprecedented comeback from a 3-0 deficit against the rival New York Yankees. By then, Red Sox fans had fallen in love with Big Papi. By now, hes joined the pantheon of Bostons most-beloved sports stars, a group that includes the likes of Bobby Orr, Larry Bird, Bill Russell, Tom Brady and Ted Williams. Since arriving in Boston in 2003, Ortiz ranks second among major league hitters in slugging percentage (.572) to Albert Pujols (.601). Big Papi also has 11 career game-ending homers in the regular season, more than any other active player. Air Jordan 1 Retro High Og Cheap .

PAUL, -- Kevin Dineen is still looking for his first win as head coach of Canadas womens team, but after nearly completing a comeback victory over the United States on Saturday, he says hes comfortable with the ability of his new squad. Canada rallied with third-period goals from Marie-Philip Poulin and Meghan Agosta-Marciano to tie the game and force overtime before American Hilary Knight scored the winner in a shootout to lift the U.S. over Canada 3-2, and take a third straight victory in their pre-Olympic exhibition series. Dineen, who replaced Dan Church as the womens coach after Church stepped down unexpectedly two weeks ago, was behind the bench for Canadas 4-1 loss to the U.S. in Grand Forks, N.D., last week. "We set a standard today for how we have to play. I thought we had a good tempo to our game, and were just looking for our baseline," Dineen said. "I was not impressed with our game in North Dakota. I think we were totally outworked and outplayed and certainly outcoached. "Tonight we had a lot better symmetry, chemistry, but we had more than that. There was a good intensity that gave us an opportunity to win the game." Kelli Stack and Alex Carpenter scored for the Americans and goaltender Jessie Vetter stopped 37 shots in regulation time and overtime. Agosta-Marciano opened the scoring for Canada off a pass from Hayley Wickenheiser at 8:36 of the third period, and Poulin made it 2-2 less than two minutes later on the power play. Poulin, who scored both of Canadas goals in a 2-0 win over the U.S. in the 2010 Olympic final, made her first appearance of the exhibition series after spraining her ankle in September. Cheap Vapormax China. . "It felt pretty good to put that jersey on and go out there with my teammates, but its not the result that we wanted," Poulin said. "It was a good comeback in the third, but a tough loss in the shootout. "The last two games they came at us pretty hard and it was two tough losses. Today we wanted to go out there and play our game as hard as we could and thats what we did in the third." Dineen says he was happy to have Poulin back out on the ice. "She showed the skill set that makes her the special player that she is and with her in the lineup I think were a stronger team," he said. "It was good to get her and Hayley Wickenheiser back." Canadas Charline Labonte stopped 27 shots, including a spectacular save that kept the game tied with under three minutes to go. Labonte robbed Brianna Decker by sliding across the crease to kick the puck away with her right leg. Though Canadas Olympic roster is set, Labonte is fighting for the starting goalie job along with Shannon Szabados and Genevieve Lacasse. "(Labonte) was unbelievable tonight," Dineen said. "Theres still a little dispute in net as to how thats going to all figure out but I think theyre doing a good job of making the statement that they want to be in the mix come February." Canada plays the U.S. in the final game of the exhibition series at Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Monday. ' ' '

BELEK, Turkey -- Tiger Woods shot a 9-under 63 Friday to trim a six-shot deficit to one after the second round of the Turkish Open. Yeezy 700 Outlet . Woods completed seven holes of his rain-delayed first round for a 70 on Friday morning. After an hour lunch break, the 14-time major winner didnt drop a shot and had nine birdies in the second round. It left Woods in fifth place on 11 under, just a shot behind the leading foursome of Swedens Henrik Stenson (68), Englands Ian Poulter (66), Frenchman Victor Dubuisson (65) and South African Justin Walters (66). "I played a little better certainly this afternoon and made some putts, so that was fine," Wood said. "It was a round that could have been really special. But I am right there, and I am only one back." Woods, who last won on the European Tour at the co-sanctioned 2009 Australian Masters, said he missed four or five putts within 10 feet for birdie. "Its a bunched leaderboard, so we are going to have to continue to go low over the weekend given the way the golf course is playing and how soft it is," he said. "It is so receptive and slow and it lends itself to a lot of birdies." Woods revealed he had been awake since around 3:30 a.m. local time watching TV coverage of his alma mater Stanford beating Oregon 26-20. The game went on so long that Woods became worried about getting in some practice at Maxx Royal before his 8 a.m. restart. "Unfortunately, I had to stay longer watching the game than I wanted to," he said. "It was one of those games where it looked like we (Stanford) were going up 29-7. But the next thing you know, Oregon comes back at us. "Im thinking I have to go warm up for this tournament. So Im saying, come on guys, cant you just run the clock out and they finally did." Stenson, the European Tour money leader, had nine straight pars before picking up four birdies over his last nine.
