NEW YORK, N. Vapormax Flyknit 3 Goedkoop .Y. - The Los Angeles Dodgers have ended the New York Yankees 15-year streak as Major League Baseballs biggest spenders and owe more than $26.6 million in luxury tax.The Dodgers finished with a record payroll of $257,283,410, according to final calculations made by Major League Baseball on Friday and obtained by The Associated Press. That is more than $20 million above the previous high, set by the Yankees last year.For the first time since the current luxury tax began in 2003, the Yankees wont be paying the most. The luxury tax was put in place as a slowdown on spending by high-revenue teams, and teams pay based on the amount they are over the $189 million threshold.The Dodgers owe $26,621,125 based on a $277.7 million payroll for purposes of the tax, which calculates payroll based on the average annual value of contracts for players on the 40-man roster and includes benefits. That raises the teams two-year total to $38 million.Los Angeles, which flopped out of this years playoffs in the division round and is seeking its first World Series title since 1988, pays the tax at a 30 per cent rate because it has gone over the threshold for the second straight year. The Dodgers rate would increase to 40 per cent if they go over in 2015, which is likely.The Yankees cut their payroll and owe $18.3 million in tax, down from $28.1 million for 2013. New York originally hoped to get under the threshold but wound up more than $36 million over. The Yankees have gone over every year, totalling nearly $271 million. New York pays at a 50 per cent rate, the highest called for in baseballs collective bargaining agreement.Checks to the commissioners office are due by Jan. 21. Tax money is used to fund player benefits and MLBs Industry Growth Fund.Four teams wound up less than $10 million under the threshold: Detroit ($187 million), Philadelphia and Boston ($186 million each), and the Los Angeles Angels and World Series champion San Francisco ($180 million apiece).Three of baseballs five-biggest spenders missed the playoffs this year, with the Yankees joined by Philadelphia and Boston. Among the 10 playoff teams, three were in the bottom half by payroll: AL champion Kansas City was 19th, Oakland 23rd and Pittsburgh 27th.The Mets regular payroll of $92.9 million was the teams lowest since $93.1 million in 2001 and $82.2 million in 2000.MLB calculated the average salary at $3,692,123, up 11 per cent from 2013 for the steepest increase since 2001.

San Joses Brent Burns committed a high-sticking infraction in the final 67 seconds of regulation, and Antti Niemi made a lunging glove stop on Kesler with 23.8 on the clock to help get his team beyond regulation. Niemi was powerless to stop Keslers second chance, an overpowering slapshot from the left circle which rippled the net under the crossbar on the far side. He stopped me at the far post a few times. Third time is a charm, Kesler deadpanned. Rickard Rakell netted his first NHL regular-season goal and Cam Fowler also lit the lamp for the Ducks, who were coming off a 6-2 loss in Ottawa which concluded a five-game road trip. Frederik Andersen came up with 30 saves for the win. Joe Pavelski and Melker Karlsson supplied offense for the Sharks, whose five- game win streak came to a halt. Niemi stopped 29 pucks in the loss. Rackells milestone occurred at the 7:20 mark of the second period, when he popped a loose puck over Niemi from atop the crease. The young Swede was only allowed near the rebound because Niemi mishandled a dump-in from the right corner by Emerson Etem which crept up his stick. Vapormax Plus Goedkoop. It feels good.

Fowler then moved up from his point position and scored on a nifty backhander in close off a Ryan Getzlaf dish for a 2-2 game with 4:16 to play.
