Melky Cabrera appears to be headed to Chicago. Chicago radio reporter Bruce Levine of WSCR AM 670 reported that Cabrera had reached a deal with the White Sox early Sunday morning. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported the two sides reached a three-year deal worth $42 million. While neither Cabreras representatives nor the White Sox immediately confirmed the deal, Cabrera himself may have provided legitimacy to the report. White Sox centre fielder Adam Eaton took to Twitter to celebrate the news, writing: The Melk Man!!! Welcome fella!! @TheMelkman53 #NewTeammates #SouthSide. The 30-year-old Cabrera re-tweeted Eatons message shortly thereafter. Coming off a two-year, $16 million deal with the Toronto Blue Jays, Cabrera enjoyed a solid 2014 campaign, hitting .301 with 16 home runs and 71 runs batted-in. The Blue Jays signed Cabrera on a relatively discounted deal after he had his 2012 campaign cut short due to a 50-game performance-enhancing drugs suspension. Cabrera was an All-Star in 2012, hitting .346 over 113 games with the San Francisco Giants. He has appeared in 1211 career games over 10 MLB seasons with the Giants, Blue Jays, New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves and Kansas City Royals. Fake Vans Website .

Everton Preview West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has been around the game long enough to not get too high when things are going well and not get too low when they arent.RALEIGH, N.C. -- Ron Francis wasted little time putting his stamp on the Carolina Hurricanes. One week into his new job as general manager, Francis fired coach Kirk Muller and most of his staff. Now leading a franchise that has made the playoffs just once in eight years, Francis cited the need for a "fresh start" and warned that nobody on the roster -- from the marquee names, to the grinders at the end of the bench -- is untouchable. "I dont think changing the coaches lets the players off the hook," Francis said. "I think there has to be a lot of responsibility on their shoulders as well to turn this thing around. Hopefully we can do that going forward." Francis, a Hall of Fame player and former captain and assistant coach with the Hurricanes, took control of the team last week when Jim Rutherford stepped aside after a two-decade run as its GM. As part of his first big housecleaning move, assistants John MacLean and Dave Lewis also were fired and goaltending coach Greg Stefan was reassigned back to the teams pro scouting department. Rod BrindAmour, a third-year assistant who was the captain of Carolinas only Stanley Cup-winning team in 2006, was retained because Francis said "Roddy really didnt have, in my estimation, a prominent role on this staff." Francis says its "an open search at this point," is looking for "a guy whos a teacher" with strong communication and leadership qualities and ideally would like to hire his new coach before the June 27-28 draft. "I dont really have anybody in mind," he said. "Well start (with) a few names were putting on the list, and well go forward looking at that list and see who is the best fit for our team going forward." Muller was 80-80-27 in three seasons with the Hurricanes, who havent made the playoffs since 2009, the llongest active drought in the Eastern Conference.dddddddddddd Carolina finished 13th in the 16-team East this season. "The biggest thing was our inconsistency," Francis said. "Some nights we looked like a great team and other nights, we really struggled, looked like we didnt know how to play the game at times." Muller, 48, made six All-Star teams during a 19-year career with six clubs, most notably New Jersey and Montreal. He had never been a head coach in the NHL and was in his first season coaching the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL when he was hired during the 2011-12 season to replace the fired Paul Maurice. The relentlessly positive Muller spent the past month in limbo, saying in mid-April that upper management had not told him anything about his job status and that he was going about his business as if he would remain the coach. While owner Peter Karmanos Jr. said late in the season that he liked the coaching staff, he added last week that it would be entirely Francis call whether to retain Muller. During his formal introduction as GM, Francis said his impending decision on Mullers status "needs due process." Mullers final year was plagued by subpar years from the four highest-paid players on the roster -- forwards Alexander Semin and Eric and Jordan Staal, and goalie Cam Ward. When Ward was asked during his exit interview if it was tough for Muller to get his message across in the dressing room, the goalie said "for me, obviously, Im going to avoid that one." Francis said he didnt sense much friction between Muller and the players. "You look at our team, theres guys who didnt play well. They were told that by us in the exit meetings," the GM said. "Theres always going to be situations where, as a player, if you dont like the coach, youve still got to perform." ' ' '
