Winnipeg Goldeyes manager Rick Forney announced today the signing of catcher Luis Alen to a contract for the 2014 season. Alen, 28, hit .315 with five home runs, 59 RBI and a career-high nine stolen bases for the Goldeyes last season. He is the longest serving catcher in Goldeyes history, having already spent five seasons with the organization. Alen is poised to become one of four players in franchise history to play six or more seasons with Winnipeg. “Obviously, Luis is one of my most favourite players that weve ever had wear a Goldeyes uniform,” Forney said. “In my opinion, hes the best duel-threat catcher there is in independent baseball. Offensively, hes a very consistent .300-hitting catcher that has the ability to drive in a lot of runs and produce a great on-base percentage. He doesnt swing and miss very much. Behind the plate, hes super at receiving and does a great job of calling games. He has a real understanding of what works and what doesnt work in this league.” Hailing from San Francisco, Venezuela, Alen has a career .315 batting average with Winnipeg, which sits third in franchise history for Goldeyes players with a minimum of 750 career at-bats. Hes hit 29 home runs and added 261 RBI in 465 career games, which trails only Max Poulins 676 games played for the most by a Goldeyes player. Among other career Goldeyes records Alen is chasing, he needs 11 doubles to pass Fehlandt Lentini, 59 RBI to pass Harry Berrios and 95 hits to pass Poulin. Alen was signed as a free agent by the Florida Marlins in 2003 and played three seasons in their system. After playing in Italy in 2006, he joined the Goldeyes for the 2007 campaign. He was then signed by the New York Mets and played from 2008-2009 in their organization. Alen came back to Winnipeg in 2010 and has played the last four seasons with the Goldeyes. The Goldeyes now have 14 players signed for the 2014 season, including seven pitchers and seven position players. Darren Woodson Womens Jersey

.com) - Its fair to call Mike McCarthy one of the best coaches in the NFL but its also more than objective to point out that the veteran mentor bookended the Green Bay Packers season with two, truly awful game plans in Seattle.NEW YORK -- Nearly two years after Timothy Bradley defeated Manny Pacquiao in a disputed split decision, promoters announced Saturday the two will fight again on April 12. Pacquiaos loss to Bradley on June 9, 2012, broke a 15-fight winning streak during which he was recognized as one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world along with Floyd Mayweather. Later that year, Juan Manuel Marquez knocked out Pacquiao, making many think that Pacquiaos age and outside-the-ring activities-- hes a congressman in the Philippines, does extensive charity work and moonlights as an actor and singer -- had hurt his ability to box at a high level. In November, Pacquiao, 35, defeated Brandon Rios in a comeback fight in Macau. Bradley, 30, defended his welterweight championship twice since beating Pacquiao: a brutal brawl with Ruslan Provodnikov annd a close decision over Marquez.dddddddddddd Bradley abandoned his defensive style against Provodnikov and left the ring swollen and with a concussion. Bradley said he slurred his speech for two months after the fight. Against Marquez, Bradley used his boxing skills to avoid the power that had caught Pacquiao, and won another close decision. Promoters Bob Arum and Todd duBoef of Top Rank and Michael Koncz of MP Promotions announced the fight, which will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and will be distributed by HBO Pay-Per-View. Pacquiao is 55-5-2 with 38 knockouts. He has been lobbying for a fight with the undefeated Mayweather, but Mayweather says he will fight someone else -- likely Britains Amir Khan or Argentinas Marcos Maidana -- in May. Bradley, from Palm Springs, Calif., is 31-0 with 12 KOs.
