Don Mincher Passes Away Don Mincher, a longtime major league player has died after a long illness at 73 years of age. He spent 13 seasons in the major leagues, made the AL All- Star team twice and played on the 1972 World Series champion Oakland Athletics• He also played with the Min- nesota Twins, California Angels, Texas Rangers Se- attle Pilots and the Washing- ton Senators• Mincher was the owner of the Double A Huntsville Stars in the Southern League and recently stepped down last October as presi- dent of the Southern League after 12 years. The Return of Oz Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith is back in the fold with the St. Louis Cardinals down in Jupiter, Florida for Spring Training as an instructor for the first time. A rift with former manager Tony La Russa over the way Smith ended his career led to a lengthy estrangement fol- lowing his retirement back in 1996. New manager Mike Matheny welcomed the Hall of Famer back. Smith said, "It was aniron curtain, but you know what, it's behind us now." Varitek Hangs it Up Jason Varitek has retired after playing 15 seasons with the Red Sox, including the past seven as captain. He will turn 40 years old next month and set the record by playing 1,488 games as a catcher• A three-time All- Star and two-time World Se- ries champ.

Meanwhile, KC Royals catcher Salvador Perez agreed to a 5 year, $7 million contract• Baseball Trivia In 1939 on September 8, Joe DiMaggio was batting .409 and had a tempera- ture of 102. Manager Joe McCarthy suggested he play and not back into .400. Results he finished at .381. Did you know, in 1941, Ted Williams only had 453 at bats and was short at bats to qualify for the batting title. That year MLB allowed his plate appearances {walks, hit batsman) to count. He finished with only 185 hits. DiMaggio finished 1941 with 193 hits. Finally, did you know Joltin' Joe had a higher batting aver- age at Fenway than Teddy Baseball? Kuroda in Starting Rotation The NY Yankees' manager Joe Girardi has announced that Hiroki Kuroda will join CC Sabathia in the five-man rotation. Michael Pineda, Ivan Nova, Phil Hughes and Freddy Garcia are in the mix for the other three spots. Kuroda has signed a 810 million, one-year con- tract. The 37 year old was 13- 16 with a 3.07 ERA for the LA Dodgers last season. Jaekie Jensen in Right Field Back in the day when I was a kid, Fenway Park was cheap. My favorite seats were in the right field grand stands and down low to get a good look at the pitchers running into the visitor bullpen. I also liked the view of the game because balls were often pulled down the right field line. I remember watching Jackie Jensen cover the area quite well. He played great defense and also hit for power at the plate. In 1958, he won the American League MVP Award. His ca- reer was shortened when baseball expanded to the West Coast with LA Angels. Jensen couldn't fly he just couldn't and you couldn't take a bus or train to play the Angeles or the Twins in Min- nesota either. I heard he tried it a couple of times and looked like he was dying of fright. Too bad, his career could have continued on for several more seasons add- ing to his stats. He could have been in the Hall of Fame but for airplanes. Franeona Could Have Been the Best Up until the September Collapse last season, folks were calling Terry Francona, the best Red Sox manager in history. Some still think Tito was but was he really? The collapse of the Sox didn't start in September; it was a slow ride over the past few seasons when players seem to take advantage of Francona's leadership style. He expected players to have his playing mentality. Most didn't. Francona over his first four seasons was sim- ply the best but when he went on cruise control, my thinking of his leadership skills took a big nose dive. Managers have to manage. You lead, they follow. He for- got seemingly how to lead; they ended up drinking beer in the clubhouse. The fall falls on him. He expected something and they wouldn't give it to him. Seemed like in the end he just gave up. Sounds harsh but the truth can hurt. The Wayward Wings of The Baltimore Orioles What happened to the once baseball powerhouse down in Baltimore. They used' to be tough birds whose mission was to win every game they played. Their mission was their goal to make it to the World Series and final vic- tory. They were composed of great sluggers, fielders and great pitching. However, that was then and this is now. Over the past six seasons, these birds have gone daffy. The year 2006, they posted their best season at 70-92. Since then, they only can win sixty-something. Pretty bad[ Their lowest team ERA has been 4.59 in 2010. Their worse was 5.35 in 2006. In 2008, no starter finished better than a 500 win-loss record. Their starters seem like all losers. 1 wish I could name names but who knows the Orioles starting rotation or even wants to know? Back in the old days, the teams were winners. In 1971, they had four 20 game winners. In 1972, all four starters had ERAs under 3.00. In 1970, they had two 24 game winners. In 1968, they had a team ERA of 2.66 and Dave McNally went 22- 10 with a 1.95 ERA. In 1969, Jim Palmer was 16-4 with a 2.34 ERA. In 1971 when they won the pennant with a 101- 57 record, the team ERA was 3.00. These great stats just went on and on. The Orioles back then were a bunch of Angry Birds out to win. The team posted 18 straight winning seasons (1968-85) under the skilled Earl Weaver who motivated his players into a winning mentality. He emphasized pitching, defense and home runs but their last winning season was 1997. Their glory days are now ancient history. Good luck to former Red Sox General Manager Dan Duquette down in Baltimore where his first priority will have to be pitching. Opening Day at Jetblue Park The Boston Red Sox started Spring Training against the Minnesota Twins at the brand new JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Florida on Sun- day, March 4. The Sox won their first game since last October by an 8-3 score. On hand for the opening of this new ballpark were Red Sox legends Carl Yastrzemsil, Luis Tiant, Dwight Evans and Mike Greenberg.
