HOUSTON - The Chicago Cubs hope Dexter Fowler will provide outfield strength and spark at the top of the batting order.He does control the strike zone really well, Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said Monday after acquiring Fowler from the Houston Astros for infielder Luis Valbuena and right-hander Dan Straily.Fowler, 28, hit .276 with eight homers and 35 RBIs last year in his only season with the Astros, who obtained him from Colorado for outfielder Brandon Barnes and right-hander Jordan Lyles.Fowler, who has a .271 career average, asked last week for $10.8 million in arbitration and was offered $8.5 million. He is eligible for free agency after the season.He can potentially lead off for us. I wont sit here and make the lineup card out for Joe (Maddon), but he certainly fits well in that role, Hoyer said. It really gives us much needed depth in centre field and in the outfield. We felt like we were a little bit imbalanced as far as our depth, that we were certainly a deeper team in the infield than we were in the outfield.The 29-year-old Valbuena played third base primarily last year but also saw time at second. He hit .249 with 33 doubles, 16 homers and 51 RBIs. Valbuena agreed Friday to a $4.2 million, one-year contract and can become a free agent after the 2016 World Series.Straily, 26, was 1-3 with a 6.75 ERA last season in eight starts and six relief appearances for Oakland and the Cubs, who acquired him as part of the trade that sent Jeff Samardzija to the Athletics. He was 10-8 for the As in 2013.The arrival of Fowler puts Arismendy Alcantara in more of a utility role. The departure of Valbuena creates an opening at third, although Hoyer insisted it will not accelerate prized prospect Kris Bryants arrival in the majors.He said Mike Olt, Tommy La Stella and Alcantara will compete for time until Bryant is ready.When Kris is ready, when we think hes ready to come up to the big leagues, well make that decision, Hoyer said. But certainly trading Valbuena is not gonna speed that clock up at all. Its all dependent on Kris.Chicago also agreed to a minor league contract with right-hander Daniel Bard, who has not pitched in the major leagues since 2013 with Boston. Bard had surgery in January 2014 for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, then agreed to a minor league deal with Texas. He made four appearances in June for the Hickory Crawdads of the Class A South Atlantic League and allowed 13 runs in two-thirds of an innings, a 175.50 ERA. Jean Segura Jersey . The victory strengthened Liverpools position in the top four after Tottenham lost 1-0 at Norwich in the days late kickoff, cutting the north London club six points adrift of fourth place and the final Champions League slot for next season. Ken Griffey Jersey . -- During a players meeting following the All-Star break, Jermaine ONeal promised his teammates to play the rest of the regular season like he would never play again -- because he very well might not. http://www.baseballmarinersofficial.com/felix-hernandez-jersey-c-5/. The Toronto Maple Leafs were holding a news conference, so they got curious. It didnt take long for them to find out via social media that coach Randy Carlyle was coming back — with a two-year extension — and assistants Greg Cronin, Scott Gordon and Dave Farrish were being let go. Kyle Seager Jersey . Every once in awhile, it seems like life lets dreams become real - and that is a gift. Jarrod Dyson Jersey .com) - Australian Open champion Li Na, former Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova and former world No.ATLANTA -- Andre Iguodala was delighted to help Golden State sneak out of Atlanta with a last-second victory over the Hawks on Friday night. Iguodala hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer, David Lee scored 23 points and the Warriors won their eighth straight game with a 101-100 victory over the Hawks. "Every part of that play worked because everybody ran like they were going to get the ball," Iguodala said. "The defence had to stay honest and pick their poison." Stephen Curry added 22 points with nine assists and Klay Thompson had 21 points for Golden State, which recovered from a 15-point deficit in the fourth quarter to get back in the game and extend its road winning streak to five straight. Pero Antic finished with a career-high 16 points and Shelvin Mack had 15 for the Hawks. Atlanta had won three of four and six of eight. Iguodala was inbounding the ball with 2.8 seconds left near the Hawks bench and had 6-foot-11 centre Antic defending him when he passed the ball to Curry near the halfcourt line. Mack was guarding Curry closely enough that Iguodala moved a few feet inside and was open when Antic moved up to help Mack close space on Curry. Iguodala took Currys bounce pass, squared up and hit the game-winner as Jeff Teague made a frantic attempt to disrupt the shot. "We defended the initial action pretty well," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. "Steph Curry demands a lot of attention. We got the ball out of his hands, and then they made a tough shot. Its a credit to Iguodala, a credit to Curry for making the pass." The Warriors were just 6 for 27 on 3-point attempts, including a 1 for 7 night from Curry that was a far cry from his previous performance. In a stirring 123-114 victory at two-time defending NBA champion Miami on Thursday, Golden State matched a season high by hitting 15 3s, including eight from Curry, its top playmaker. Golden State called timeout after Iguodala grabbed Paul Millsaps missed jumper with 2.8 seconds remaining, and coach Mark Jacksson drew up the options for a winning play.dddddddddddd "I was a decoy at first and then it became my play once we didnt have our first option," Curry said. "Once I got the ball in my hands, they jumped off (Iguodala) and he jumped in. A clutch, clutch, clutch shot by him." Antic said it was his decision, not Budenholzers plan, for him to double-team Curry. "Even if I score 16 points, a career high, at the end I make a mistake," Antic said. "We lose the game, so I feel bad." Teague finished with 14 points and seven assists while Millsap had 12 points and 11 rebounds for Atlanta. Curry hit his lone 3 with 5:05 remaining, cutting the lead to 93-87, but committed turnovers on three of Golden States next four possessions and was upset enough to throw his mouthpiece away in frustration on the Atlanta baseline after getting called for a discontinued dribble. Even so, the Warriors kept the pace frantic with tight defence to fuel their fast break and go on a 20-4 run that ended with 2:21 remaining on Currys runner. Golden State led 96-95. "We had been bad for the majority of the night," Jackson said. "Stepped up the defence, stepped up the offence, began to make plays. We made multiple-effort plays on the defensive end. This is an incredible win for us, especially the way things had been going." Notes: Golden States last eight-game winning streak was March 25-April 8, 2005. ... Hawks G Kyle Korver extended his NBA record with a 3 in his 102nd straight game. ... DeMarre Carroll missed the past two games with a sprained right thumb, but returned to Atlantas starting lineup to finish with 12 points. ... After beginning their road trip 4-0, the Warriors will visit Washington on Sunday and finish up next week at Milwaukee and Brooklyn. ... Atlanta has lost four straight to the Warriors. ... Golden State C Andrew Bogut had six points and nine rebounds despite playing with a strained right calf that forced him to leave the Miami win in the second half and not return.
