SAN DIEGO - As players and teams waited for Jon Lester to make a decision and start defining the high-end pitching market, baseballs winter meetings opened Monday with Oakland jettisoning yet another All-Star and the Chicago White Sox adding a closer. Cheap Nike Free Wholesale .In the first swap of the four-day session, the Athletics sent first baseman-outfielder Brandon Moss to Cleveland for minor league infielder Joey Wendle. That followed Oaklands trade last month of third baseman Josh Donaldson to Toronto.The White Sox agreed to a $46 million, four-year contract with David Robertson, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the deal had not yet been announced.Chicago also acquired right-handers Jeff Samardzija and Michael Ynoa from Oakland on Tuesday for right-hander Chris Bassitt, catcher Josh Phegley, first baseman Rangel Ravelo and infielder Marcus Semien. Samardzija had pitched for the crosstown Cubs before he was traded to the Athletics in July.Big-name moves among free-agent starting pitchers are taking more time to percolate. Traded from Boston to Oakland last summer, Lester was sought by the Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs.Athletics general manager Billy Beane is watching the bidding without getting personally involved from his position with the low-payroll As.That ones more just for my industry curiosity as much as anything, he said. Like Arthur Miller being married briefly to Marilyn Monroe — thats who we are. Were the Arthur Miller in Lesters career.Max Scherzer and James Shields appeared content to wait for Lester to reach a deal first. And trade talks for top pitchers seemed secondary.Almost any move thats made has some kind of domino effect, some more pronounced than others, said Andrew Friedman, the Dodgers new president of baseball operations. But obviously when youre talking about the bigger guys coming off the board, theres a more pronounced trickle-down effect.Lester helped Boston go from worst to first and win the 2013 World Series, and then was part of a purge as the Red Sox again dropped to last in the AL East.Were still optimistic that hell be in a Red Sox uniform. Theres a lot of history between the Red Sox and Jon, Boston manager John Farrell said. We obviously have a strong desire to bring him back. And yet, hopefully, this is coming to a little bit of a head here.The perennially woeful Cubs got a player back at the less pricey level, agreeing to a $20 million, two-year contract with right-hander Jason Hammel — a pitcher Chicago traded to the As last summer. That deal was confirmed by a person familiar with those talks, who also spoke on condition of anonymity to the AP because the deal had not been announced.Arizona completed its $68.5 million, six-year contract with Yasmany Tomas, a 24-year-old Cuban defector the Diamondbacks may move from the outfield to third base.Initially, youve got to believe that thats a lot of money to be passing out on any player, new Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said. And in this day and time when a player has not played here, hes not proven yet here, that makes it even a little bit uncomfortably. But once you get the right information and youve checked the right sources, it makes it a lot easier to make the move.Cleveland obtained the 31-year-old Moss, who hit .234 with 25 homers and 81 RBIs in 2014. He batted .268 with 21 homers in the first half of the season to earn his first All-Star selection, but a nagging hip problem cut into his production over the final months.On Oct. 21, Moss had a hip operation. Moss said Dr. Thomas Byrd was prepared to perform microfracture surgery, but all he needed was a labrum repair and cartilage cleanup.Its a really difficult market to acquire offence, whether thats in free agency or the free-agent market, but we thought the deal for Brandon made sense because we felt we were getting one of the better power hitters in the game, Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said.As the meetings began, the doors to baseballs Hall of Fame remained shut to this years Golden Era committee candidates.Nine players and one executive whose primary contributions were from 1947-72 all failed to receive the 75 per cent of the vote needed for election.Dick Allen and Tony Oliva came closest, each receiving 11 of 16 votes, one shy of the 75 per cent needed for election. Jim Kaat appeared on 10 ballots, Maury Wills nine and Minnie Minoso eight.Ken Boyer, Gil Hodges, Billy Pierce and Luis Tiant each received three or fewer votes, as did the late Cincinnati Reds general manager Bob Howsam.The results today are a reminder that election to the Hall of Fame is incredibly difficult and the highest honour an individual can receive in baseball, Hall of Fame chairman Jane Forbes Clark said.___AP Sports Writers Howie Rumberg and Bernie Wilson contributed to this report.

Then again, he really was at his home away from home. "It was nice to sleep in my own bed last night," Shields said after pitching Kansas City past the San Diego Padres 8-0 Wednesday.MOSCOW -- Canadas Brianne Theisen is fourth after the first four events of the heptathlon at the world track and field championships. The native of Humboldt, Sask., has 3,810 points to trail leader Ganna Melnichenko of Ukraine by just 102 points. Shes only 26 points behind American Sharon Day, who is third. Briesen was second after the first two events -- 100-metre hurdles and high jump. She won the 100 with a time of 13.17 second and was sixth in the high jump with a leap of 1.83 metres. Briesen fell to fourth overall after registering 732 points with a 13.07-metre effort in the shot put but accumulated 963 points after finishing the 200 in 24.18 seconds. Dafne Schippers of the Netherlands is second overall with 3,837 points. The final three events -- long jump, javelin and 800 -- are scheduled for Tuesday. The two-day event is considered wide open since Olympic champion Jessica Ennis-Hill and defending champion Tatyana Chernova are both out injured.

Canadians Matt Hughes and Alex Genest advanced to the mens 3,000-metre steeplechase. Meanwhile, the U.S.-Jamaica sprint rivalry is turning into a rout. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce rubbed it in Monday with a winning margin of Bolt-esque proportions in the womens 100 metres.

And in Moscow she gave Jamaica a 2-0 lead over the Americans in the sprint duel, showing the Caribbean island produces the fastest runners on the planet. The United States got its part of the glory, too, when David Oliver led a 1-2 finish in the 110 hurdles. It would have been an American sweep had defending champion Jason Richardson not stumbled near the end. In the womens 400, Christine Ohuruogu set a British record to regain the world title she first won in 2007, dipping at the line to cap a great comeback and beat defending champion Amantle Montsho of Botswana by .004 seconds. "When I finished I didnt know if Id won it, I didnt want to get over-excited until my name came up," Ohuruogu said. "I heard everyone screaming and I looked up and Im just so happy." Through three days of competition, the United States leads the medals standings with three gold and six overall. Germany is second with four medals overall after Raphael Holzdeppe upset Olympic champion Renaud Lavillenie of France on a countback to win the pole vault. In the shot put, Valerie Adams became the first woman to win four straight individual world titles. ' ' '
