TAMPA, Fla. Leonard Floyd Jersey . -- Two-time AL Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana agreed Tuesday to a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles as he tries to come back from the second major operation on his left shoulder. Santana would get a $3 million, one-year deal if added to the 40-man roster and would have the chance to earn an additional $5.05 million in roster and performance bonuses. He would receive the full amount for 120 days and 25 starts. The 34-year-old left-hander became a free agent after completing a $137.5 million, six-year contract with the New York Mets, who declined a $25 million option and paid a $5.5 million buyout. Santana, 139-78 with a 3.20 ERA in 12 seasons with Minnesota and the Mets, missed the 2011 season following shoulder surgery on Sept. 14, 2010, returned to pitch the Mets first no-hitter on June 1, 2012, then missed last season after an operation on April 2. The deal announced Tuesday follows Baltimores recent agreements with right-handers Ubaldo Jimenez and Suk-min Yoon, and outfielder Nelson Cruz. "I think its great," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Tuesday nights game against the New York Yankees. "Im not going to say no risk, as far as, Im not the owner, but its another thing that Peter (Angelos) allowed us to do that puts us in position to get kind of lucky. Im not going to say its a no lose proposition. There are things you lose, but it makes a risk worth taking. I think its exciting, the possibility down the road." Santana is expected to report Wednesday. The Orioles are hopeful that he might be ready to pitch in the majors around June 1. Santana can earn $2.1 million in bonuses based on days on the active 25-man roster: $250,000 for 30, $350,000 for 60, $500,000 for 90 and $1 million for 120. He can make $2.95 million based on starts: $250,000 for five, $350,000 for 10, $500,000 for 15, $750,000 for 20, $150,000 each for 21 and 22, $200,000 apiece for 23 and 24, and $400,000 for 25. He has additional award bonuses for All-Star selection, and winning a Gold Glove and the Comeback Player of the Year and league championship series and World Series MVP awards. Santana would get $100,000 if he is released before March 25. He would be able to opt out of the deal if he isnt added to the major league roster by May 30. Mike Singletary Jersey .C. -- Martin Kaymer set a U. Dion Sims Jersey . According to a release sent by the league, the Saskatchewan Roughriders were the only team to exceed the cap. Their total salary expenditure of $4,417,975 was $17,975 over the salary cap of $4.Lets put it to a vote across Canada. With B.C., Edmonton and Calgary all winning, the competitive balance between the two divisions does not exist. Would it not be more interesting and easy to follow if there was a single group of nine teams? Im a traditionalist, as I do enjoy the East/West rivalries if both divisions are good at the top. But at 2-4, the East-leading Argonauts are the sixth best team in the CFL and the league standings should reflect that. If the playoffs were to start today, Hamilton, Ottawa and Montreal - all at 1-5 - would be out. The five West teams would all be in with one East team. Good! If two West teams are in the Grey Cup, I have no issues with that as long as theyve earned it through the regular season and through the playoffs. For me, one division of nine teams is more visually attractive and easier to follow. Yes, the bottom three will have concerns over ever being able to catch a playoff spot and theres a chance that by early October, a team or two would be out of the playoffs completely. Well, welcome to big boy football - where if you dont win, you lose your job. Its no different than any other chosen profession of pressure and performance. One division of nine teams gives exceptional clarity of who is good and who is not with a quick glance of the sports page. I like it! And if youre a Roughriders fan, you have to like your team coming off a road win in Ottawa and a road win in Winnipeg. I didnt think they could continue the turnovers for a third game in a row. Next up is a home game against Montreal and 5-2 is quite realistic. Two players stand out in Regina. John Chick is having a heck of a year. It is the combination of physical ability, polished technique and excellent effort that makes him excel. What will happen as were closing in on midseason is that teams will design packages of protection to make sure he keeps his distance from quarterbacks. Thats when you know youre good - when a tackle gets help from a running back or when a tight end is lined up beside the tackle. I look for Richie Hall to move Chick around pre-snap so what a team plans can be seen as the game progresses. The other is Jerome Messam. With over 100 yards rushing in one half of football, he is a true power back with a unique level of elusiveness. And the time to shine is now. And this is the team to do it with because George Cortez will never abandon the run. From Anthony Allen to Hugh Charles, from Will Ford to Messam, theres a job dangling with the RRiders for someone to take. Kyle Long Jersey. . With Canadian citizenship, ratio-buster Messam has the inside lane in a sprint to be the No. 1 guy. In Montreal, it was Edmonton that controlled everything in their game. With three plays, 54 yards and a touchdown, the Eskies were ready to play - especially when you add 191 yards rushing. On the other side, Troy Smith ran 65 plays so the contingency of coaches and advisors have a lot of good video to work with. Smith only completed 44 per cent of his passes but I counted five dropped passes which would have taken him over 50 per cent. And I could have found another five catchable footballs to take him to 60 per cent. I still think Smith can lead, perform, and most importantly improve this year and still make it a good year in Montreal. That late touchdown was so important to end the talk of going 52 offensive possessions without a touchdown. When that is embedded in your mind you press to get it out of the mind. With Hamilton, the challenge is to keep confident at 1-5 and that can be tough to do. The Ticats have now lost four games they could have won and you use it that to learn and move on. With a home game against Calgary on Saturday afternoon, it does not get easier. But with a win, perception changes. In Vancouver, the Lions have won two close games and Kevin Glen threw for 400 yards. Many will want Travis Lulay back ASAP, but I would wait until Sept. 5 in Ottawa. It would become a nice 10-game season for Lulay and that little extra week or two helps him get back and be more productive. In the second half of the season, B.C. could be a very good team. Which brings me to a not so good team in Ottawa. The 38-17 loss on Saturday night was pure logic in real time. The battles are threefold in the nations capital. First, beat the opponent every week. Second, dont beat yourself every week - which is as difficult to master as beating any opponent. And third, finding new talent to inject and perform for the team. The other eight teams have players that have been around a while and are dependable and consistent. The Redblacks have not played enough games to make that type of conclusion with the present roster, so they must continue to evaluate until the coaches confidence builds up. They dont think they have an 18-game starter on their roster. They know it. Its a tough challenge because it can take two years to find 12 on offence and 12 on defence you really are solid in every way. No one said this was going to be easy.
