NEW YORK -- Amare Stoudemire isnt done yet.After retiring from the NBA on July 26, Stoudemire signed a two-year contract Monday to play for Israeli team Hapoel Jerusalem.Stoudemire said the decision was very emotional for him and his family. The six-time NBA All-Star has visited Jerusalem on multiple occasions, but said getting the opportunity to play in Jerusalem will be a spiritual journey.Shortly after signing a five-year, $100 million contract with the New York Knicks in the summer of 2010, Stoudemire traveled to Israel to explore what he believed might be Hebrew roots through his mother, Carrie.

After returning to their Florida home for a week, the family will make the move to Jerusalem in late August for training camp -- the same time when school will start back up as well.My wife and I always talked about living abroad and experiencing different cultures, and what better culture to experience for us than living in Jerusalem?

As part of his new contract with Hapoel Jerusalem, he will sell his shares to majority owner Ori Allon.Jerusalem is a very special city as you guys know and Amare is a very special person, other than the fact that he is a very good basketball player, Allon said.

I look at it as graduation because the NBA is a fraternity. Its like a school.Stoudemire is a 14-year NBA veteran who was the No. 9 pick in the 2002 draft by the Suns and averaged 21.4 points.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs got another strong performance from Scott Feldman on Saturday, and Matt Garza is set to return to the mound on Tuesday. One of the worst teams in the NL Central has one of the leagues best rotations. Feldman pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning and drove in two runs with a big two-out double, helping the Cubs to an 8-2 victory over the New York Mets. The Cubs have won five of seven and can win three straight series for the first time with a victory on Sunday. Anthony Rizzo had two hits and his first home run since signing a seven-year contract on Monday. Chicago announced before the game that Garza will come off the disabled list to pitch Tuesday in Pittsburgh, with Carlos Villanueva shuffling to the bullpen. Garza, who had 15 wins with Tampa Bay in 2010, has been out all season with a strained lat muscle. "If these guys keep throwing the ball the way they have the first six weeks and with Garza coming back, you dont expect a whole lot right away," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "But once he gets settled in, its got a chance to be pretty nice, if not one of the top rotations in the league right now." The Cubs (18-24) were going for their first shutout since a victory over Colorado on Aug. 26, but Rick Ankiel broke it up with a two-run homer off Hector Rondon with one out in the ninth. Feldman (4-3) allowed seven hits, struck out six and walked one in 6 2-3 innings. The right-hander improved to 4-0 with a 1.27 ERA in five games since he lost each of his first three starts in his first year with the Cubs. "I feel healthy, my arm feels good. Mechanically everything feels a lot better than it did in spring training," Feldman said. "Just keep working on that stuff and try and keep it that way for the rest of the season here." Feldman lifted the Cubs to 26 quality starts, tied with Washington for third in the NL. Chicagos starters also have held opponents to a .226 average, which actually went up a point Saturday. Besides Feldman, Travis Wood has opened the season with eight consecutive quality starts and Jeff Samardzija has 64 strikeouts through nine starts. "Its awesome, its a good feeling. We got Garza coming back and hopefully he just fits right in and gels like the rest of the staff," Rizzo said. "We know if we go and score some runs, were going to be in the game and have a chance to win." Mets starter Jeremy Hefner lost his fifth straight decision to start the season. Hefner (0-5) was charged with four runs and five hits in four innings in his shortest start since he pitched four innings against Washington on April 20.dddddddddddd "I wouldnt say its weighing on me," Hefner said of his winless start. "I want to win, I want the team to win and obviously we didnt do that today. Got to make some adjustments and be better in the next one." New York, which was trying to win three straight games for the second time this season, squandered a couple of chances to get off to a fast start. The Mets put runners on the corners in the first when Ike Davis flied out for the second out. David Wright then stole second, but David DeJesus hauled in Lucas Dudas fly ball to deep left-centre at the wall to end the inning. New York had runners on second and third again in the second, but Mike Baxter popped out to shortstop to end the inning. Chicago then scored four times in the fourth inning. Luis Valbuena had a sacrifice fly and Welington Castillo singled in Alfonso Soriano. After Darwin Barney flied out for the second out, Feldman came up with a two-run double to give the Cubs a 4-0 lead. Rizzo tacked on his 10th homer in the fifth and Nate Schierholtz went deep in Chicagos three-run eighth inning. "Whenever you get an opportunity to get runs, you gotta seize those opportunities," Rizzo said. "It was good to get the big inning there, then towards the end with the insurance runs. Thats what we need to do." Daniel Murphy went 2 for 4 for New York and is batting .500 (14 for 28) in his last seven games. But Davis continued to struggle, going 0 for 4 to fall to 4 for 39 over his last 11 games. Davis said he spoke to general manager Sandy Alderson, who told him he wasnt getting sent down in the near future. "As long as I keep cool, start having good at-bats and start performing better it wont happen," Davis said. NOTES: Saturday was the 700th game between the Mets and Cubs.
