Delgado accepts $52 million deal with Marlins

MIAMI — Carlos Delgado wanted to play for a contender, and the Florida Marlins look like one now.

Delgado agreed Tuesday to a $52 million, four-year contract. The deal, which includes an option year making it potentially worth $64 million over five seasons, is contingent on the Delgado passing a physical Wednesday.

With the addition of the free-agent first baseman, Florida becomes perhaps the team to beat in the NL East.

''It's a spectacular day for the franchise,'' owner Jeffrey Loria said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. ''I'm going to spring training tomorrow. I'm not waiting.''

The Marlins won the World Series in 1997 and 2003 but still are seeking their first division title. They also want to win support for a new ballpark.

''We're about trying to be a very competitive ballclub, and the stadium will take of itself in due time,'' Loria said. ''But Carlos certainly is not going to hurt that effort.''

The Marlins landed the most formidable left-handed power hitter in their 12-season history, and it took the franchise's richest per-season deal to do it. Florida won out over the New York Mets, Texas and Baltimore.

Owens' doctor won't clear Eagles receiver to play in Super Bowl

PHILADELPHIA— Terrell Owens' doctor said Tuesday he will not give the All-Pro receiver clearance to play in the Super Bowl.

Owens saw his doctor Tuesday, one day after telling reporters he would play against the New England Patriots on Feb. 6.

Dr. Mark Myerson said he's pleased with Owens' recuperation, but maintains the surgery requires a recovery period of eight to 10 weeks. Myerson said in a statement Tuesday night that any attempt to accelerate the rehabilitation process poses the same risk for injury.
