NEW YORK -- Curtis Granderson is heading across town, where the New York Mets hope his home run swing wont suffer at Citi Field. Tom Phoebus Jersey . The free-agent outfielder agreed to a $60 million, four-year contract with the Mets, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal was pending a physical and no announcement had been made. Granderson, who turns 33 in March, comes over from the crosstown Yankees and gives the Mets much-needed power in their punchless outfield. He batted .229 with seven homers and 15 RBIs this year, when wrist and hand injuries limited him to 61 games. But he surpassed 40 homers in each of his previous two seasons in pinstripes. The move marks general manager Sandy Aldersons most expensive free-agent signing -- by far -- after three years of bargain shopping as the Mets rebuilt. A three-time All-Star, Granderson provides proven thump from the left side of the plate to complement right-handed hitter David Wright in a lineup that managed only 130 home runs last season -- tied for 25th among 30 major league teams. New York also signed free-agent outfielder Chris Young to a $7.25 million, one-year contract this off-season. Granderson has played centre field most of his career but spent time in both left and right last season. He figures to fill a corner spot with the Mets, who plan to use defensive whiz Juan Lagares or Young in centre. New Yorks outfield combined to hit .238 this year (29th in the majors) with 50 homers (tied for 24th) and 209 RBIs (16th), according to STATS. The group also includes speedy left fielder Eric Young Jr., the NL stolen base leader. Granderson turned down a $14.1 million qualifying offer from the Yankees to test the open market. The Mets, however, would not have to forfeit their first-round draft pick to sign him because they own the 10th overall selection. The top 10 picks are protected. Granderson hit 41 home runs in 2011, when he led the American League in runs (136) and RBIs (119) and finished fourth in MVP voting. He had 43 homers and 106 RBIs in 2012, taking advantage of the short right-field porch at Yankee Stadium. The Mets hope his power will translate to spacious Citi Field, where its more difficult to clear the fences. Grandersons numbers have declined the past two years, down to a .317 on-base percentage and .407 slugging mark last season. He also is prone to strikeouts -- whiffing 364 times from 2011-2012 -- and joins a Mets lineup that fanned 1,384 times this year, tied with Atlanta for most in the NL. But his bat is a significant upgrade for the Mets, starved for offence following their fifth straight losing season since moving into Citi Field. Now, the club can focus on other areas of need -- shortstop, first base, the pitching staff -- heading into baseballs winter meetings next week. Granderson was on the disabled list twice last season after getting hit by pitches. He missed the first 38 games after breaking his right wrist when he was plunked by Toronto left-hander J.A. Happ in his first spring training plate appearance on Feb. 24. Not long after he returned, Granderson broke a knuckle on his left pinkie when he was hit at Tampa Bay on May 24. That kept him out until August, making Granderson one of several Yankees stars to be sidelined much of the season. New York was unable to overcome all the injuries, missing the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years. Grandersons agreement with the Mets was first reported by the New York Post.

It was a day that saw England slump off a World Cup field once again battered and bruised. This time there was no red card to wonder about, no goalkeeping error or individual mistake. They were thoroughly beaten by something they have nothing of genuine world class ability.Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Andrew Luck threw for 370 yards with five touchdowns, leading the Indianapolis Colts to a 49-27 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. It was supposed to be a matchup of the top two picks in the 2012 NFL Draft, but only Luck, the No. 1 selection, played. And he played very well. Luck completed 19-of-27 throws, two of which went for scores of more than 70 yards. Coby Fleener hauled in TD passes of 30 and 73 yards, while Donte Moncrief had scoring receptions of 48 and 79 yards. Robert Griffin III, the second overall choice in 2012, was benched earlier this week by Redskins coach Jay Gruden after three straight losing efforts. Colt McCoy, the winning quarterback in Washingtons last two victories, threw for 392 yards with three touchdowns, but the Redskins defense could not stop Luck. The Colts (8-4) racked up 487 yards on just 49 plays, an average of 9.9 yards per play. Dan Herron added to the outburst with 88 yards on just eight carries, including a 49-yard touchdown run, as Indianapolis notched its second straight win. Washington (3-9) has lost four in a row since McCoy guided the team to an overtime win at Dallas on Oct. 27. The Redskins were productive with 425 yards of offense after mustering just 213 last week in a loss to San Francisco. The Colts turned the ball over on each of their first two possessions, but Washington managed to convert only one mistake into points. Luck fumbled on the first play from scrimmage to give Washington possession at the Indianapolis 15, but it led only to a 25-yard Kai Forbath field goal. Luck then had a pass deflected four plays into the ensuing series and Ryan Clark came down with the interception near midfield, but again the Redskins failed to move and were forced to punt. There were no mistakes on Indys third series. Luck connected on each of his four passes, including a 30-yard scoring strike to a wide open Fleener along the left sideline. The Collts extended their lead to 21-3 on consecutive possessions in second quarter, as Herron broke free for a 49-yard touchdown run and Luck found T. Pat Gillick Jersey. . Hilton with a 3-yard TD pass. Washington then finally put together a solid offensive series, marching 84 yards on nine plays for a score. McCoy capped it with a 21-yard TD pass to Roy Helu Jr. The Redskins got one more chance after Herron fumbled near midfield on the next series, but an incomplete pass and a sack eventually forced a punt in the final minute of the half. McCoy pulled Washington within 21-17 on the first series of the second half, throwing a 16-yard touchdown pass to Logan Paulsen, but the Colts answered just three plays after the kickoff when Luck hit Moncrief with a 48-yard scoring pass. The Redskins were moving again with their next possession, but McCoy was sacked again and lost the ball. DQwell Jackson recovered and raced 35 yards for a touchdown to give the Colts a 35-17 advantage. McCoy and Luck then traded long scoring passes. McCoy hit DeSean Jackson with a 42-yard touchdown and Luck answered just 27 seconds later with a 73-yarder to Fleener. Forbath kicked a 29-yard field goal three minutes into the fourth quarter to get Washington within two scores, but once again Luck had a quick response with a 79-yard TD pass to Moncrief just three plays later and Washington had no answer. Game Notes The Colts scored a touchdown in the first quarter for the first time since Week 6 against Houston ... Luck set a franchise record with his 10th 300-yard passing game of the season, eclipsing Peyton Mannings mark of nine set in 2009 ... Fleener had four catches for 127 yards, while Moncrief amassed 134 yards on just three receptions ... Jackson caught five passes for 84 yards in defeat, while tight end Jordan Reed hauled in nine balls for 123 yards ...
