ST. Eric Ebron Jersey . LOUIS - St. Louis city officials said Wednesday that the owner of the Rams isnt returning their calls, so they plan to work directly with the NFL on efforts to keep a team — any team — in St. Louis amid speculation the Rams are headed back to Los Angeles.Billionaire owner Stan Kroenke is part of a joint venture that announced plans Monday for an 80,000-seat stadium in the Los Angeles suburbs, a move that could soon return the NFL to the nations second-largest market and the home of the Rams from 1946 until they moved to St. Louis in 1995. The move would have to wait at least a year — the NFL has said no team moves would be allowed in 2015.Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon isnt giving up on the Rams.St. Louis is an NFL city, Nixon said Wednesday. I dont think its too late to keep the Rams.But city leaders are hedging their bets, saying the plan now is to work directly with the NFL — not the Rams. The change in philosophy is due in part to the fact that Kroenke wont take calls from Mayor Francis Slay or other city leaders, said Maggie Crane, Slays spokeswoman.He hasnt responded, he hasnt called back, he hasnt done anything, Crane said of Kroenke.After a while you sort of get the hint, said Jeff Rainford, the mayors chief of staff.Messages left Wednesday at Kroenkes office were not returned.General manager Les Snead didnt think the relocation issue would hurt the Rams in free agency, that the top two issues for players are money and coaching.But he added, Ill bet you theyre not buying a house. Now, what youll probably find with an NFL player is theyre used to being a transient.Lets say they have an off-season home where player A plays in Green Bay, and they just say Lets keep our kids in school here.Rainford said St. Louis can make a compelling argument to remain an NFL city: It is the nations 20th-largest market, with a loyal fan base that sold out every game at the Edward Jones Dome from the teams arrival until a long run of bad play — the Rams havent had a winning record since 2003.The NFL can make money in St. Louis, Rainford said. It may end up being the Rams with this owner, the Rams with a different owner, a different team with a different owner.If not the Rams, it isnt clear which team St. Louis might pursue. The San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders play in aging stadiums and have been mentioned as potential Los Angeles transplants, but it isnt clear if either would consider a move to the Midwest. There is no talk of expansion.St. Louis has been through this before. The Chicago Cardinals moved here in 1960 and stayed until 1987. Unhappy with sharing Busch Stadium with the baseball Cardinals, owner Bill Bidwill moved the team to Arizona.By the early 1990s, a domed stadium was being built with taxpayer money. St. Louis missed out on an expansion team in 1993 when the league awarded franchises to Jacksonville and Carolina. But in 1995, Rams owner Georgia Frontiere took the Rams back to her hometown. Kroenke bought in as minority owner.Frontiere died and, in 2010, Kroenke bought the team. Meanwhile, the dome — small and outdated by NFL standards — became a point of contention. Negotiations about improvements have gone nowhere.With the threat of the Rams departure looming, Nixon in November appointed former Anheuser-Busch executive David Peacock and veteran attorney Robert Blitz to lead an effort looking at a new stadium. They are expected to deliver a report to Nixon by Friday. One plan would call for a new stadium near the Mississippi River, not far from the Gateway Arch.Paying for it is the next hurdle.The dome was built 20 years ago with 30-year bonds. The state of Missouri pays $12 million annually toward the debt; the city and St. Louis County pay $6 million each.There appears to be no appetite for new public funding. Missouri Senate Majority Leader Ron Richard, a Republican, said it was doubtful that lawmakers would approve new spending for a football team when the state has so many other needs.Nixon and Rainford said no new taxes or fees would be used for the new stadium, but Nixon has hinted that the bonds for the dome could be extended.Anheuser-Busch is one of the NFLs largest advertisers and Peacock worked directly with the league on advertising and marketing while with the brewing giant. He is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame advisory board. Blitz was part of the legal team that helped bring the Rams to St. Louis and is legal counsel to the St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority.___AP Sports Writer R.B. Fallstrom and AP writers Summer Ballentine and David A. Lieb contributed to this report. Michael Roberts Jersey .Y. -- Sore nose and all, Sidney Crosby had a goal and three assists to help Pittsburgh beat Buffalo 5-3 on Friday night, snapping the Penguins mini-slump and slowing the Sabres late-season surge. Greg Robinson Jersey . Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers (5) - Simply put, Lundqvist was brilliant. http://www.authenticnfllionslockroom.com/Youth-Barry-Sanders-Elite-Jersey/ . - San Diego Padres centre fielder Cameron Maybin is going to be out two to three months after rupturing his left biceps tendon during a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.NEW YORK -- The New York Mets traded slumping first baseman Ike Davis to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night, parting ways with a power hitter who proved to be too inconsistent at the plate. Pittsburgh sent minor league right-hander Zack Thornton and a player to be named to New York for the 27-year-old Davis. The Mets announced the deal just minutes before a 6-0 loss to Atlanta. Davis was on the field during batting practice earlier in the day. The Pirates had searched all winter for a first baseman, without success in the trade and free-agent markets. "Ultimately, we found the right fit," Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said. "Hopefully this is a move that solves our first base needs for years to come," he said. The lefty-swinging Davis hit 32 homers for the Mets in 2012, but fell off sharply last year. "Obviously, I didnt play as well as I should have," he said. Davis was hitting .208 with one home run and five RBIs in 24 at-bats. He lost his starting job to Lucas Duda and was relegated to a part-time role with the Mets, who also have Josh Satin at first base. "You cant play a major league season with three first basemen, so one of us had to go," Davis said outside the Mets clubhouse after the game started. "Obviously its an emotional time, but we arent there bawling our eyes out," he said. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said the team decided several months ago to trade Davis. "We are happy for Ike and it was a situation we needed to resolve," Alderson said. "I would not say that we lost patience with Ike. At some point you have to make a decision about players on the roster, so we simply had to make a choice." Said Mets star David Wright: "It happened late so I dont think a lot of guys knew, but Ike will be missed. Through thick and thin, Ike was the best teammate Ive ever had." The Mets filled Davis roster spot by activating outfielder Chris Young from the 15-day disabled list. He started in centre field. "Happy to be back," Young said before the game. "Seems like its been forever, for some reason." Young had been out with an injured right quadriceps. He played one inning in the field for the Mets during the opening week and was pulled before he came to bat. Davis, the son of formmer big league pitcher Ron Davis, was a promising prospect when he hit 19 homers with 71 RBIs while batting . Jarrad Davis Jersey. 64 as a rookie in 2010. He got off to a strong start the following year, hitting .302 with seven homers and 25 RBIs in 36 games, but missed most of the season with an ankle injury. Still, he seemed primed for a fine career. Davis power numbers peaked in 2012 -- he was tied for fifth in the NL homer race -- even while he hit just .227. But he got off to a second consecutive miserable start last year and was demoted to the minors for nearly a month. He batted .205 with nine home runs and 33 RBIs, missing the final month with a side strain. "Obviously, its a little weird. Ive been with the Mets for a long time. Ive got really good friends here," Davis said. "Ive had a blast in New York. Its where I made my childhood dreams come true." As for joining the Pirates a year after they ended a long playoff drought, "in different scenery it will be better," Davis said. Since no cash was involved, the Mets save $3,117,486 of Davis $3.5 million salary. The Pirates didnt bring back first baseman Garrett Jones after the season and went searching for a lefty-hitting complement to Gaby Sanchez. But no major moves developed and the Pirates went into spring training with only prospect Andrew Lambo and non-roster invitee Travis Ishikawa at the position. Lambo didnt hit much in exhibition play and Ishikawa got off to a quick start during the regular season before dipping. Manager Clint Hurdle has reverted back to playing Sanchez -- a player who has drastic right/left splits -- against righties. "Ikes done a really nice job against right-handed pitchers in his career. Hes had two big seasons and two injury-plagued seasons and were betting that our guys can get him back on the right track. Were betting that he was a better fit in this ballpark than he was in what used to be spacious Citi Field," Huntington said. Young went 8 for 12 with two homers in a three-game rehabilitation stint at Triple-A Las Vegas. Young hit 27 homers with 91 RBIs and 28 steals for Arizona in 2010. He hasnt been able to duplicate those numbers since then. The 25-year-old Thornton was 2-0 with a 1.23 ERA in four relief appearances at Triple-A Indianapolis. He will report to Las Vegas.
