ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves are getting older in their starting rotation next season. Authentic Air Jordan 4 Cheap .A lot, lot older.Not content to add one 40-something starter, the Braves made it two by agreeing to terms with 43-year-old Bartolo Colon, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Friday.The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement is expected from the Braves until next week on the reported $12.5 million, one-year deal with Colon.The agreement is subject to a physical and comes one day after the Braves said they had an agreement with 42-year-old knuckleballer R.A. first reported the Colon deal, which includes a team option for 2018.Colon went 15-8 with a 3.43 ERA for the New York Mets this season. He was picked for the All-Star Game and memorably became the oldest player in baseball history to hit his first career homer when he went deep at San Diego on May 7.While having two 40-year-old starters is not unprecedented -- the 1990 Texas Rangers featured 43-year-old Nolan Ryan and 42-year-old Charlie Hough -- its extremely rare.Still, Colon and Dickey both fit what the Braves were hoping to add as they prepare to move into SunTrust Park: experienced starters who could eat up innings and not require the sort of long-term contracts that would hamper payroll flexibility and stymie the growth of the organizations plethora of promising young pitchers.Colon and Dickey will bolster a shaky rotation that didnt produce anyone with double-figure wins this past season but does feature two-time All-Star Julio Teheran and hard-throwing Mike Foltynewicz, who led the team with a 9-5 record.Colon had 44 wins for the Mets over the last three seasons, and before that was an 18-game winner for Oakland at age 40. Hes also one of the games most popular players, which should make a good fit in the clubhouse.The Braves also have re-signed Josh Collmenter, who will likely join young pitchers Matt Wisler, Aaron Blair and Tyrell Jenkins in competing for the fifth starter spot.Atlanta is coming off a last-place finish in the NL East but showed promise down the stretch after acquiring slugger Matt Kemp from the Padres. Kemp teamed with first baseman Freddie Freeman to provide a 1-2 punch in the middle of the batting order.The Braves went 50-47 after an 18-46 start, including 12 wins in their final 14 games. General manager John Coppolella made it clear he expects to be a playoff contender next season when the team moves from Turner Field to its new $622 million stadium in suburban Cobb County.Atlanta is still hoping to add another catcher -- former Braves star Brian McCann, now with the New York Yankees, is among those mentioned -- and perhaps pick up another versatile player to help off the bench.Otherwise, the Braves appear to be largely set for 2017.And much, much older.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at . His work can be found at . Cheap Jordan 4 Retro .Y. - Free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday night. Cheap Air Jordan 4 Clearance . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year. . During the athletes parade, the 23-strong Ukrainian team was represented by a lone flagbearer in an apparent protest at the presence of Russian troops in Ukraines Crimean peninsula. When the first Week 11 inactives were released Sunday, the smattering of defensive players and lineman were a heartening set of names, at least for fantasy purposes, relatively free of impact pass-catchers and running backs.In retrospect, things were a little too quiet.Week 11 ended with fantasy teams tattered and torn, after injuries to A.J. Green, T.J. Yeldon, C.J. Prosise, LeSean McCoy, Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles, Robert Woods, Giovani Bernard and Zach Miller. Throw in a concussion to Mark Ingram on Thursday night and the fantasy landscape is now what experts like to call a mess.A VERY EARLY LOOK AT THE WAIVER WIREGreens injury leaves the door open for rookie Tyler Boyd and veteran Brandon LaFell to assume larger roles in the offense. Boyd tied a career high with eight targets Sunday after Greens first-quarter exit. He also caught his first career touchdown pass. LaFell, meanwhile, has four touchdowns on the season but just two games with more than 75 receiving yards. While there isnt a clear-cut choice here, Boyd has intriguing upside and the Bengals -- with just three wins -- may want to see what their first-round pick is capable of.As far as running backs go, theres a bit of a disappointing trend for the fantasy owner looking to make waiver wire moves -- many of the injured backs were mired in time shares. Chris Ivory, Thomas Rawls, and Jeremy Hill are going to see big jumps in value, but theyre owned in most leagues.And while LeSean McCoy had thumb surgery, he could still play in Week 12.A fantasy players most attractive option in sifting through the replacement backs is probably Wendell Smallwood (owned in 9 percent of leagues), who would need both Mathews and Sproles to miss significant time to have an impact -- a gamble worth taking with fantasy seasons on the line. According to Pro Football Focus Nathan Jahnke, Smallwood out-snapped fellow running back Kenjon Barner, 38-18, on Sunday.THEO RIDDICK: FANTASY STUD?Theo Riddick (eight receptions for 70 yards in Week 11) has already set career highs in touchdowns (four), rushing yards (310), and rushing attempts (79). Barring injury, hell likely surpass highs in targets, receptions, receiving yards, and total yards by seasons end.Riddick has at least 775 total yards in his last three games And in point-per-reception formats, his 24 targets and 17 receptions make him an even more valuable piece of a fantasy backfield. Jordan 4 For Sale Cheap. Riddicks next two games -- against Minnesota and New Orleans -- should yield more of the same, as both teams give up 45 receiving yards or more per game to opposing backs (both falling in the bottom 10 in the NFL for that stat).One thing to look out for, however -- Riddick hurt a hand in the first half of the game Sunday. With a traditional Thanksgiving game on deck, a short week for an injured Riddick could make Dwayne Washington a decent speculative pickup.MISCELLANEOUS- With Bills receiver Robert Woods going down, theres a small chance his replacement could be ... Sammy Watkins, who will have a CT scan on his foot Tuesday. The Bills may be cautious rushing Watkins back (after the McCoy debacle earlier this season), but if hes healthy and good to go, it might be worth checking waiver wires for availability.- He carries an incredible amount of risk, but Percy Harvin had the second-most targets (four) and played the second-most snaps (46) among Bills receivers on Sunday.- At this point int he season, backup running backs must be rostered to combat injuries. One name to consider: newly-minted backup Denard Robinson, the No. 2 in Jacksonville, behind an oft-injured Chris Ivory in an offense that has featured both backs in the game plan since Nathaniel Hackett took over as offensive coordinator. Robinson averaged 4.2 yards per carry in 2014-2015, with 44 receptions on 61 targets over two seasons as the sometimes-starter for the Jags.-Tajae Sharpe has a pair of 68 yard, one-touchdown games in his last two. He also has a wild matchup schedule coming up, with games against the Bears (third-most yards allowed to wide receivers), Broncos (fewest), and Chiefs (most).- This years Thanksgiving games are: Minnesota at Detroit, 12:30 p.m. Eastern; Washington at Dallas, 4:30 p.m. Eastern; Pittsburgh at Indianapolis, 8:30 p.m. Eastern.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
