NEW YORK -- Jose Fernandez arrived early. Shea McClellin Jersey . Wil Myers made it big after a blockbuster trade. Neither one needed much time to create a splash, and together they brought both Rookie of the Year awards back to Florida. Fernandez stood out in a very deep National League class this season, and the precocious Miami Marlins pitcher received 26 of 30 first-place votes from a Baseball Writers Association of America panel in results announced Monday. Myers won the American League prize after the Tampa Bay slugger put up impressive offensive numbers in barely half a season. The right fielder was chosen first on 23 of 30 ballots, beating out Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias and Rays teammate Chris Archer. "Honestly, when I was called up that didnt even cross my mind. As the season went on I could see I would have a chance," Myers said on a conference call from his North Carolina home. "To be able to win is just a huge honour and Im very excited about it." The two announcements marked the beginning of awards week in baseball. NL and AL Manager of the Year will be revealed Tuesday, with the Cy Young winners Wednesday and MVPs on Thursday. Myers became the third Tampa Bay player in six years to be selected Rookie of the Year, joining Jeremy Hellickson (2011) and Evan Longoria (2008). Seated next to each other, Myers and Archer smiled and shook hands when the winner was revealed on MLB Network. Fernandez easily topped runner-up Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers as Cuban players ran 1-2 in the NL race. The only previous Rookie of the Year winners from Cuba came in the AL: Jose Canseco in 1986 and Tony Oliva in 1964. "It means a lot just to be compared to those guys," Fernandez said. "Im not sure I was even born when those guys were playing. But for sure I heard the names before. ... All the kids in Cuba play baseball." Puig received the other four first-place votes and amassed 95 points to 142 for Fernandez, who made the All-Star team at age 20. He went 12-6 with a 2.19 ERA and 187 strikeouts for a last-place club that finished 62-100. Fernandez was shut down in September after 172 2-3 innings to protect his precious arm. Still, his debut season was so superb that hes one of three finalists for the NL Cy Young Award -- though Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is a heavy favourite. Fernandez already has one big prize, however, and he hugged his mother and grandmother when he won. He came to the United States by boat as a Cuban refugee in 2008, apparently rescuing his mom along the way. Drafted 14th overall in 2011 out of high school in Tampa, Fla., he had never pitched above Class A before this season. Fernandez was ticketed for Double-A Jacksonville at the end of spring training when injuries left two holes in Miamis rotation. Fernandez became an unexpected addition to the roster, making him the youngest pitcher on a major league team on opening day. "I wasnt planning on being in the big leagues," he said. The surprises havent stopped -- on and off the mound. One day before winning the rookie award, a shocked Fernandez was reunited with his grandmother in Florida with help from his lawyer. "Out of nowhere," the pitcher said. "I have no idea how it happened." Now, she can visit for a few years and see him play in the majors. "Pretty excited about that," Fernandez said. After the Marlins dumped nearly all their high-priced stars last winter, Fernandez was a rare bright spot this season. The right-hander became the fourth Marlins player in 11 years to win Rookie of the Year, following Chris Coghlan (2009), Hanley Ramirez (2006) and Dontrelle Willis (2003). "Im very happy that he won," Puig told MLB.com in comments circulated by the Dodgers. "He worked really hard to achieve this and he pitched extremely well with Miami and he deserved this just as we deserved to be nominated. I am happy for him, that a Cuban won. Im happy his grandmother arrived and I hope he enjoys his time with his grandmother and enjoys the prize he won." The 22-year-old Myers batted .293 with 13 home runs and 53 RBIs in only 88 games after he was called up from the minors June 18. He immediately added much-needed power to the middle of the Rays lineup, helping them reach the playoffs as an AL wild card. Myers was rated one of baseballs best hitting prospects when he was traded from Kansas City to Tampa Bay last December in a seven-player deal that sent pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis to the Royals. "There were some mixed feelings in leaving Kansas City," Myers acknowledged. "I dont want to say they gave up on me. They made a move they thought would better their team and it did." Worked out well for Tampa Bay, too. The Rays were 36-33 before Myers arrived this season and went 56-38 the rest of the way. They won a tiebreaker at Texas for the final AL playoff berth and beat Cleveland in the wild-card game before getting eliminated by World Series champion Boston in the division series. Myers finished with 131 points in the balloting to 80 for the slick-fielding Iglesias, traded from the Red Sox to the Tigers just before the deadline in late July. Both teams ended up in the AL championship series. Iglesias was listed first on five ballots. Archer and fellow pitcher Dan Straily of the Oakland Athletics each got one first-place vote. David Andrews Jersey . The time off didnt slow them down. Tyler Zeller scored a season-high 18 points and grabbed a career-best 15 rebounds, Kyrie Irving added 14 points and the Cavaliers pushed their winning streak to five games Tuesday night with a 114-85 victory over the skidding Philadelphia 76ers. Derek Rivers Jersey . Howard had 17 points and a career-high-tying 26 rebounds in his Houston debut, James Harden added 21 points and the Rockets cruised to a 96-83 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night. http://www.patriotsjerseysauthentic.com ... wl-Jersey/ . -- The Minnesota Twins have granted relief pitcher Matt Guerrier his unconditional release, making the 35-year-old right-hander a free agent.BALTIMORE - Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps registered .14 per cent on a blood-alcohol test after he was stopped on a speeding violation, according to charging documents released Wednesday.The legal limit for intoxication in Maryland is .08.Phelps, 29, was charged Tuesday with driving under the influence, excessive speed and crossing double lane lines in the Fort McHenry Tunnel on Interstate 95 in his native Baltimore, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority Police. His trial is scheduled for Nov. 19.The statement of probable cause also states that Phelps eyes were red, bloodshot, and his speech was mush mouth.An officer administered field sobriety tests to Phelps, according to the statement. Asked to do a one-leg stand, the statement says, the operator stated thats not happening.The arresting officer wrote that after he placed Phelps in custody, the swimmer appeared disoriented, argumentative.An officer stopped Phelps, who was driving 84 miles per hour in a 45-mph zone, at roughly 1:40 a.m. on Tuesday after the Olympian cleared the tunnel toll plaza, according to charging documents. The officer also observed Phelps drift out of his lane while driving toward the tunnel.According to the documents the officer smelled alcohol in the car, and when he asked Phelps how much hed had to drink, the swimmer said 3 or 4 drinks, adding that his last drink was two hours prior and that he drank a glass of water before leaving the Horseshoe Casino in downtown Baltimore.When the officer asked Phelps to get out of the car, the officer said he smelled alcohol on Phelps breath, and administered three field sobriety tests, including a walk and turn test. Phelps broke heel to toe stance several times throughout the examination and at one point began counting out loud. Phelps completed the test whille having difficulty with his balance while walking, the officer wrote. Steve Grogan Jersey. .Phelps was placed under arrest after initially refusing to take the one leg stand test. Shortly afterward, the officer wrote, Phelps asked to take the test by the side of the road, but appeared disoriented, argumentative and did not attempt the test.He did, however, end up taking the one leg stand test at the transit police station, but was swaying slightly and did not look at his elevated foot as instructed, the officer wrote.This is Phelps second time facing DUI charges. Phelps was arrested and charged with drunken driving as a 19-year-old, fresh out of his second Olympic games where he won six gold medals.Phelps pleaded guilty to the charges, but as a young first-time offender Phelps avoided conviction. A Wicomico district court judge granted him probation before judgment, imposing 18 months probation and a fine but waiving the conviction, which means Phelps faces the same penalties a first-time offender would.If convicted of the latest charges, Phelps faces up to one year in jail, a $1,000 fine and the loss of his drivers license for six months. However, according to Baltimore-based attorney Andy Alperstein, who has represented other professional athletes facing DUI charges, if Phelps sentencing is on or after Dec. 29, 2014 a€” exactly 10 years since his last sentencing a€” a judge could potentially grant Phelps probation before conviction for a second time.Some attorneys say either way, Phelps is unlikely to serve any jail time.Hes more likely to be eaten by a polar bear than go to jail for a year, said attorney Lenoard Shapiro, a former prosecutor with the Baltimore County States Attorney who specializes in drunken driving cases. If incarcerated at all, itll likely be for a weekend. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
