NEW YORK -- Jay Z, the new agent for Robinson Cano, had dinner Monday night with top officials of the New York Mets. Nike Air Max Thea Mujer Baratas . Chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon and general manager Sandy Alderson were among those there. The get-together also included sports agent Brodie Van Wagenen, but not Cano. A five-time All-Star second baseman, Cano is a free agent. He is seeking a 10-year contract for more than $300 million from the Yankees. Alderson said last week he doubted the Mets would offer any nine-figure contracts. "They requested a meeting," Alderson said Tuesday. "We talked generally and that was it. As I said, we were approached. Having said last week that I didnt foresee contracts in the $100 million range for the Mets this season, I think that statement still pertains. On the other hand, we are committed to improving the team and we will explore whatever possibilities arise, however remote and eventual outcome." Alderson called it "a very preliminary meeting" and said it included a PowerPoint, books and pamphlets. "We certainly have a high regard for Robinson Cano as a player," he said. "It was my sense the presentation was a little bit overdone." Jay Zs Roc Nation Sports formed a partnership this year with Van Wagenens CAA Baseball. "We felt it would be useful enough for us to meet Jay Z and Brodie, whether its in connection with Robinson Cano or some future client that they may have," Alderson said. While the Mets have more money to spend after getting large contracts for Johan Santana and Jason Bay off their books, Alderson says free-agent prices have been high. He said he didnt teams payroll would be below its 2013 level of about $95 million. "We have to be realistic about the market and not sort of deny the inevitable. If the market is as robust as it seems to be, then we have to acknowledge that," he said, adding: "It may not be manifest yet to the average fan, the average person, but I think we are more active than we were last year." NOTES: The Mets signed 1B Brandon Allen to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. The 27-year-old Allen, who last played in the majors for Oakland and Tampa Bay in 2012, is a .203 career hitter with 12 homers and 41 RBIs in 116 big league games. He spent last season in San Diegos system, batting .267 with 17 home runs and 76 RBIs for Triple-A Tucson. Nike Cortez Nylon Comprar . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. Nike Air Max 90 Mujer Baratas . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. http://www.zapatillasrebajas-es.com/nike-cortez-nylon-leather.html . James, who turned 29 on Monday, injured his groin Friday during the Heats overtime loss at Sacramento. He sat out the following game, a 108-107 win Saturday in Portland, before coming back to help send the Nuggets to their seventh consecutive loss.With training camp just three weeks away, John Tortorella has kept the lines of communication open with his No. 1 goaltender and knows hes ready to report. In an interview with The Vancouver Sun on Wednesday, the Vancouver Canucks head coach said hes been in constant contact with Roberto Luongo and added that the veteran netminder just wants to focus on what has to be done on the ice. "I dont want to get into specifics, but I have talked to Roberto four times," he told the paper. "In fact, I just talked to him yesterday. Ill tell you, from talking with him he has told me he is working very hard as far as conditioning and getting ready for this season. "He knows there is a lot of talk and probably a lot of questions coming his way with how it all unfolded here. I think hes prepared for that and the bottom line is he told me I just want to play." The Canucks raised plenty of eyebrows at the NHL Draft when general manager Mike Gillis dealt away presumed No. 1 goaltender Cory Schneider instead of Luonggo. Nike Blazer Low Hombre. The deal - done with the New Jersey Devils - netted the Canucks the ninth overall pick (Bo Horvat) and handed the net firmly back over to Luongo for the foreseeable future. Since the trade was made, Luongo has kept quiet regarding his relationship with the Canucks. He did however, hire Pat Brisson of CAA Sports, who told TSN last month that Luongo would report to training camp. "I think that is the most important thing, if there is some conflict or you are unhappy about certain things, the bottom line is and he understands it, is that he is playing for his teammates," added Tortorella. "Those are the most important people. "I have done a lot of talking to people who have coached him and know him and there is just tremendous support for what kind of pro he is. You dont have to be happy about a lot of different things. You can be really happy about this, unhappy about that, as long as you are ready to play. I think he gets that. So I am really excited about where he is mentally." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
