N.Y. Mets Extend Contract of GM Sandy Alderson

iStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- The New York Mets and general manager Sandy Alderson have agreed to a contract extension through the 2017 season, the team announced on Tuesday. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We are excited about the direction the team is headed and look forward to Sandy continuing his efforts to build the Mets into a postseason contender,” said Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon in a statement. “Sandy and his staff have built our minor league system into one of the best in baseball, and will continue to balance player development along with making key additions that will help us reach our goals.”

Alderson has been at the helm since Oct. 29, 2010. During that time, the Mets have failed to make the postseason.

“I deeply appreciate the opportunity to continue what we have started,” said Alderson in a statement. “There have been positives this season, but there is still a lot of work to do.”

The Mets also have announced that manager Terry Collins will return for the 2015 season.

Linebacker James Harrison Ends Retirement, Returns to Steelers

NFL via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Less than three weeks after holding a retirement ceremony in Pittsburgh, veteran linebacker James Harrison has decided to come back and return to the Steelers.

"It's really family here, and I wanted to come back and finish it off where it started," Harrison said earlier this month.

The Steelers recently lost two of their starting linebackers as Jarvis Jones and Ryan Shazier were both injured Sunday night against the Carolina Panthers. Facing a shortage of linebackers, the team decided to go back in time to bring back one of their long-time leaders.

The 36-year-old Harrison spent the first nine of his ten-year career with the Steelers and won two Super Bowls during his time in Pittsburgh. He played one season with the Cincinnati Bengals and decided that 2013 would be his last season in the NFL, before returning.

Pirates Will Do All They Can to Keep Catch Russell Martin

Tony Firriolo/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- In the midst of a career-year, the Pittsburgh Pirates have acknowledged that they will make a strong push to bring back catcher Russell Martin, who is set to hit the free agent market.

Martin has helped lead the Pirates to become one of the top teams in the National League again this season. The  team will most likely make the playoffs.

In line for a big pay day, Pirates' general manager Neil Huntington knows the risk and reward involved with negotiations.

"We are going to try to do everything we can to keep Russ. We’d love nothing more than to have (Martin) in a Pirates uniform," Huntington told the Pittsburgh Tribune. "(Martin) is a unique circumstance where we got beat up for signing him and if he does (leave), we are going to get highly criticized."

Now 31 years old and in his ninth season in Major League Baseball, Martin is hitting .297 with 11 home runs, 67 RBIs, and a .409 OBP. It is the first time he's hit over .250 in a season since back in 2008 when he was a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Rangers' Guilder Rodriguez, 31, Gets First Major League Hit

Tom Szcaerbowski/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Tex.) -- In what has been a lost season for the Texas Rangers, Monday night was a bright spot as career minor leauger Guilder Rodriguez played a big part in the team's 4-3 win over the Houston Astros.

Rodriguez has spent the vast majority of his baseball career in the minor leagues before getting called up by the Rangers -- 13 seasons and 1,095 games to be exact.

In his second-career start, Rodriguez belted his first Major League hit with members of his family in attendance. As if that wasn't a big enough moment for him, in the seventh inning he hit a two-out single to drive in outfielder Jake Smolinski for what proved to be the game-winning RBI.

"This is my second-best moment after seeing my two daughters born," Rodriguez said. "It's unbelievable. I feel great. My first big league hit, my first RBI, my father in the stands, my wife."

After the game, Rodriguez received a Gotorade shower from teammate Elvis Andrus.

Pitta Out for Season After Undergoing Hip Surgery

Al Bello/Getty Images(OWINGS MILLS, Md.) -- Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta had season-ending hip surgery on Monday.

It's the second time in a year that Pitta has undergone hip surgery, leaving his NFL future in doubt.

“I don’t know the ramifications of that long-term,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. “The specialists, they’ll have to give us information on that. I really don’t know. I’m going to be really hopeful for Dennis’ return, and I’m sure we will learn about that as we go.”

Pitta was hurt during the team's win over the Cleveland Browns Sunday after catching a pass. He turned to make the catch, and when he twisted back around, he couldn't put all of his weight on his right leg and fell to the ground.

The 29-year-old Pitta, who during the off-season received a five-year, $32.5 million contract, had 16 catches for 125 yards in three games this season.

With Pitta out, the Ravens will have to depend upon Owen Daniels and Kyle Juszczyk to handle the team's tight end duties.

Lions LB Tulloch Done for Season

Darrin Klimek/Thinkstock(ALLEN PARK, Mich.) -- Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch will miss the remainder of the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee Sunday in the Lions win over the Green Bay Packers.

The injury occurred while Tulloch was celebrating a sack of quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter.

Tulloch stayed in the game for one more play before leaving the field for good.

“Obviously he’s disappointed,” Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said. “He’s been one of our fine team leaders, but obviously he’ll still be around helping our guys with a little instruction and things of that nature."

The 29-year-old Tulloch has never missed a game since being drafted in 2006.

Tulloch had 135 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and an interception last season for the Lions.

ESPN: Steelers Lose LB Jarvis Jones at Least 8 Weeks

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, linebacker James Harrison, who retired less than three weeks ago, is expected to join the Steelers.

Bears Thwart Jets Late Rally, Win 27-19

Nick Laham/Getty Images(EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.) -- Down by eight with 3:18 left in the game, quarterback Geno Smith led the New York Jets 71 yards before his fourth down pass to Jeremy Kerley was caught out of bounds, sealing the Chicago Bears a 27-19 win Monday night.

The Bears (2-1) started their scoring early when safety Ryan Mundy returned an interception 45 yards on the second offensive play of the game.

Jay Cutler completed 23 of 38 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns -- both to tight end Martellus Bennett -- in the win.

"Right now I feel I'm very intelligent on the field," Bennett said. "The game is getting a lot easier. I know the offense better. I know what Jay wants."

The Jets (1-2) had problems on offense, turning the ball over three times and losing receiver Eric Decker to a hamstring injury in the first half.

Alshon Jeffrey had eight receptions for 105 yards in the win.
