White Sox Give Manager Ventura Extension
Huffington Post - about 4 years
CHICAGO (AP) — As their win total plummeted last season, one thing remained steady for the Chicago White Sox — their faith in Robin Ventura. The White Sox rewarded their manager with a multi-year contract extension Friday, announcing the move hours before their annual fan convention opened. The terms were not disclosed. The extension comes after the White Sox dropped from second in the AL Central in Ventura's first season to last with 99 losses in his second year. "You lose 99 games, there are going to be questions like that, about where this organization's headed and why they think the people in charge are the right people to get them through their end goal," general manager Rick Hahn said. "I would say we saw in 2012 and 2013 two extremes in terms of being a first-place club and being a club that was a disappointed in terms of performance. Throughout each of those extremes, Robin's leadership was unwavering." Ventura's contract was set to expire after this year. He turned dow...

Jake Peavy Bought Duck Boat After Red Sox Victory Parade Through Boston (PHOTOS)
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
Jake Peavy loved his trip aboard a duck boat during the Red Sox "rolling rally" through Boston on Saturday that he bought himself one of the amphibious vehicles. The Red Sox official Twitter account first reported that the 32-year-old right-handed pitcher had purchased one of the WWII-style landing vehicles that the team used during its victory parade that traveled through the streets of Boston as well as in the Charles River. So @JakePeavy_44 is fired up because he bought this boat. Yup, the whole thing. This is our Ducking City! http://t.co/EQqhwpiDcE — Boston Red Sox (@RedSox) November 2, 2013 A short while later, both Peavy and Boston Duck Tours confirmed the big purchase.

World Series Umpires Should Be Applauded For Making The Right Obstruction Call In Game 3
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
Let us get one thing straight: Intent does not matter in MLB obstruction. In the first ever playoff game in MLB history to be decided by obstruction, the umpires actually got the call correct. The Boston Red Sox complained after their 5-4 loss, but the truth was they deserved to lose Game 3. Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia made a ridiculous decision to throw the ball down the line. That was one mistake. Another mistake? Red Sox manager John Farrell electing not to double-switch and take out Brandon Workman -- a reliever who had not only never had an at-bat, but who was already finished pitching. Let us also not forget about Farrell pitching to Jon Jay instead of walking him to create a force-out for the struggling Pete Kozma. Farrell, to be sure, has been brilliant during his one season in Boston, taking a sluggish team with seemingly aging stars to a pennant. And yet, these are all the little things that really add up. Maybe Farrell going to a National League stadium is an excuse, but...

St. Louis Cardinals Top Boston Red Sox 4-2 In World Series Game 2 (VIDEO/PHOTOS)
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
BOSTON -- BOSTON (AP) — Michael Wacha won again in October and the St. Louis Cardinals got just enough help from Boston, beating the Red Sox 4-2 Thursday night to tie the World Series at 1-all. Down 2-1 after David Ortiz hit a two-run homer in the sixth, the Cardinals rallied for three runs in the seventh to end Boston's nine-game winning streak in the World Series that started with a sweep of St. Louis in 2004. Matt Carpenter's tying sacrifice fly set off a chain of Red Sox misplays. Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia let the wide throw home skip off his glove, then pitcher Craig Breslow made a wild toss that wound up in the Fenway Park seats. Carlos Beltran followed with an RBI single. Wacha improved to 4-0 this month, pretty impressive for any pitcher, let alone a 22-year-old rookie. Trevor Rosenthal struck out the side in the ninth for a save. John Lackey took the loss. Game 3 is Saturday night at Busch Stadium. Jake Peavy is set to start for Boston against Joe Kelly. Wacha ha...

American League Playoff Game Capsule
Fox News - over 4 years
Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - One team's offense broke out in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series and the other's stayed dormant despite a slew of scoring opportunities. Detroit erupted for five runs in the second inning, knocked Jake Peavy out in the fourth and let Doug Fister and the bullpen do the rest as the Tigers evened the best-of-seven series against the Boston Red Sox with a convincing 7-3 victory at Comerica Park. Jim Leyland shuffled Detroit's lineup after his club combined for six runs over the first three games of the ALCS, and the moves paid dividends. Torii Hunter replaced Austin Jackson in the leadoff spot and contributed a two-run double, while Jackson, perhaps motivated by the demotion to the No. 8 spot in the order, went 2-for-2 with two walks, two RBI and a run scored. Miguel Cabrera, batting second instead of third, also had two hits, knocked in a pair and even ...

Gomes finds place of strength with the Red Sox
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Gomes is the half-crazed, half-clutch spiritual leader of the Boston Red Sox as they take on the Tigers in the American League Championship Series. The A's loved his infectious energy and outrageous commentary last year, but he was locked in a strict platoon setup - and with the Tigers throwing all right-handed starters, Gomes got exactly one at-bat during the five-game 2012 ALDS: pinch-hitting against Justin Verlander in the eighth inning of the final game with the Tigers leading 6-0 (the final score). The Red Sox were in Cleveland that day, and as the players came together, it was Gomes' idea to design a jersey that read "Boston Strong 617" (the city's area code). Back in Boston four days later, during a tribute at Fenway Park, veteran David Ortiz took the microphone and shouted, "This is our f-ing city, and nobody is going to take away our freedom!" Fans in the ancient ballpark roared their approval - for once, an obscenity was fully tolerated. Facial hair has become a runaway ...

Brian Wilson didn't help himself with angry stunt
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Call up "Wilson Father's Day" on YouTube to watch a clean-shaven Wilson addressing the subject at length with Amy Gutierrez in 2008. Whatever persona he projected on the mound, Wilson was a beacon of good sense in the Giants' clubhouse in those days, always a source of perspective and well-meaning humor. The right wayThough the Giants had no idea how to properly handle a farewell start for Barry Zito, the Yankees honored Mariano Rivera's final home appearance in a manner beyond anyone's imagination. With one out to go in the ninth inning, nobody on, longtime teammates Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte came out to make a pitching change, and a sobbing Rivera hugged both men. As he made his final walk to the dugout in tears, it became one of the most endearing moments in baseball history ... For decades now, MLB has made the idiotic mistake of rejecting an official award for relief pitchers. Naming it after Rivera, and forever eliminating the awkward possibility of a reliever stealing...
