HOUSTON -- Lance Berkman and Roy Oswalt signed one-day contracts and officially retired as Astros on Saturday. Berkman and Oswalt were drafted by the Astros a year apart and came up through the minors together before Berkman made his major league debut in 1999 and Oswalt followed less than two years later. "Its an honour to come back here and retire as an Astro," Oswalt said. "Lance and I both came up through the organization about the same time. We got to play together for a long time. The best thing about Houston was that it was always home. I know Im speaking for myself, but I went to Philadelphia, Texas and Colorado afterwards, but Houston has always been home." Berkman said it was special to play for an organization that had the tradition the Astros did. "We all kind of felt like we were all part of the Astros family," Berkman said. "Thats what made this, in my opinion, a special place to be. They made a conscious effort to draft guys, develop them and keep them here for a long time." As part of the pregame ceremony to celebrate the two players, a video played with comments from Nolan Ryan, Jake Peavy, Tony La Russa and Albert Pujols and former teammates Brad Ausmus, Andy Pettitte, Craig Biggio and Adam Everett. Both players were given multiple standing ovations by the crowd at Minute Maid Park and presented with their framed 2005 World Series jerseys along with personalized rocking chairs and Stetson hats. It was also announced that the two Texas flags flying at the State Capital in Austin on Saturday would be framed and given to the two players. Oswalt, the MVP of the 2005 NLCS, ranks second in wins and strikeouts in franchise history. Oswalt went 2-0 mark with a 1.29 ERA in the Astros six-game series win over St. Louis and was the starter and winner of the Astros Game Six series-clinching win at Busch Stadium. Berkman spent 12 of his 15 seasons in the majors with the Astros after being Houstons first pick in the 1997 draft out of Rice. For his career, he hit .293 in 1,879 games with 366 home runs and 1,234 RBIs with a .406 on-base percentage and a .537 slugging percentage. Oswalt finished his 13-season career with a 163-102 record in 365 appearances -- 341 starts -- with a 3.36 ERA. Oswalt, a three-time All Star, reached 20 wins in 2004 and 2005 and was a 19-game winner in 2002. After being selected by the Astros in the 23rd round of the 1996 draft, Oswalt was called up to the majors in 2001, finishing that season with a 14-3 record in 28 appearances -- 20 starts -- with a 2.73 ERA. "You always wonder when it will be your last year," Oswalt said. "My goal when I first started was to play 10 years. I felt that if you play 10 solid years in the big leagues, you have had a solid year, and I got to play 13. I feel like some days I can still play. I didnt want to walk away that way where you cant play anymore. Thats pretty special." Ben Woodburn Jersey . -- Hal Steinbrenner says Alex Rodriguez is "a great player" and "obviously an asset," but the New York Yankees managing general partner wouldnt discuss the third basemans possible return to the team following a season-long suspension. Trent Alexander-Arnold Liverpool Jersey . Needing to bulk up on both sides of the line, the Falcons agreed to terms with guard Jon Asamoah, defensive end Tyson Jackson and defensive tackle Paul Soliai. Asamoah and Jackson played last season with Kansas City, where Asamoah lost his starting job. http://www.soccerliverpoolproshop.com/c-...-fc-jersey.aspx. With the Pirates in the thick of the race in the NL Central, the timing couldnt be better. Liriano struck out a season-high 11 in seven innings to win consecutive starts for the first time this season and Pittsburgh beat the San Francisco Giants 3-1 on Tuesday night. Dominic Solanke Jersey .Two San Francisco radio stations say they wont play the song during the duration of the World Series. A Kansas City, Missouri, station responded with plans to play the Grammy-winning track every hour from 7 a. Simon Mignolet Liverpool Jersey . -- The Chicago Bears have agreed to a one-year contract with cornerback Kelvin Hayden.The San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos meet tonight for the first time since a London game nearly four years ago, when the teams werent the NFL powerhouses they have become. Now it is a potential Super Bowl preview. Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning needs three touchdown passes to break Brett Favres league record of 508. Hes averaging three a game this season. Manning said he wants only to have more points than the 49ers do when its all over at Mile High Stadium. You can watch the game live on TSN and TSN GO at 8:15pm et/5:15 pt. Thats what Ive concentrated on, trying to do whatever it takes to win, he said. Manning added he wouldnt mind seeing Ronnie Hillman run for four touchdowns against San Francisco. That would be a shocker, though, because the Broncos have just two running touchdowns this season to go with Mannings 15 touchdown passes. The 49ers started 1-2, but have begun to play some impressive football, too. They understand the chore ahead in trying to stop Manning. Whenever he takes the field, hes just great all the time and that speaks volumes for the player that he is and continues to be, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said. Just keeps doing it and doing it and doing it. Great. Great with a capital G at the highest level. Coming off the first tie in team history, the Carolina Panthers are showing a better passing offence than anticipated. Quarterback Cam Newton looks healthy and strong and has found a comfort zone with tight end Greg Olson and rookie wideout Kelvin Benjamin, who leads all NFL rookies wiith 416 yards receiving.dddddddddddd The defence hasnt been as stout as expected, though, and that never bodes well when facing Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, which the Panthers are visiting for the first time since 2008. Rodgers has 10 touchdown passes without throwing an interception in Green Bays three-game winning streak. There could be long-term playoff ramifications when the Cincinnati Bengals meet the Colts in Indianapolis. It is the only game in Week 7 between teams that have sole possession of their division lead, giving the winner the inside track to potential playoff positioning. The Bengals are reeling and the Colts are rolling. Cincinnati comes off a blowout loss at New England and then a tie against Carolina. The Bengals have stuck by kicker Mike Nugent, who has been streaky this year and missed a 36-yard field goal at the end of overtime last week. Colts passer Andrew Luck leads the league with 1,987 yards passing and 17 touchdowns. T.Y. Hilton comes off a career game with 223 yards on nine catches. Theres also Kansas City at San Diego, the New York Giants at Dallas, Arizona at Oakland, Seattle at St. Louis, Atlanta at Baltimore, Miami at Chicago, New Orleans at Detroit, Cleveland at Jacksonville, Tennessee at Washington, and Minnesota at Buffalo. The action began on Thursday when New England beat the New York Jets 27-25. Tom Brady threw for three touchdowns in a sixth straight loss for New York after an opening win. On Monday, its Houston at Pittsburgh.
