I BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 6, 2012 Page15 EXTRA innings % by Sal Giarratani The Great Mel Parnell Has Left Us Mel Parnell, a great left- handed pitcher who spent his entire 10 year career as a member of the Boston Red Sox during the '40s and '50s died recently after a battle with cancer. He was 89 years old. No lefty did better pitch- ing at Fenway than Parnell. Lefties always hated the Green Monster at only 310 feet down the left field line. He had a career 123-75 win- loss record but was 70-30 at Fenway Park. He still holds the team record for a lefty in games started, innings pitch- ed and victories. Back in 2005, Parnell said, "The Green Monster never both: ered me. It was the lack of foul room that bothered me. A foul ball would go into the stands, letting the batter stay LEGAL NOTICE MICHAEL SORRENTINO (AGENT) 95 CRESCENT AVE., SUITE 107 REVERE, MA 02151 (617) 347-9104 FAX (781) 286-8402 TO THE OWNER OR OWNERS THE FOLLOWING VEHICLES WILL BE SOLD IF NOT CLAIMED IN 21 DAYS.

I always thought I could manage the Monster. I couldn't manage the lack of foul territory." His best season was 1949 when he went 25-7, the most wins that year in the AL, he also had the lowest E.R.A. at 2.77, and he completed 27 games and threw 295.1 in- nings. Parnell didn't really like the system for current pitchers, pitch counts and all kinds of specialty relievers. In his career, he threw 113 complete games and had 20 shutouts including a no-hit- ter in 1956. In his great 1949 season, he started 35 games and completed 27 of them. I remember the role he played during the 1967 Im- possible Dream season when he did color along with Quincy sports legend Ken Coleman. He's a pitcher I wish I could say I saw pitch but I was just a bit too young to have seen him on the mound. As a left-hander my- self, I always knew his career stats. By the way, one of the American League's best left- handed pitchers, Whitey Ford from the NY Yankees rarely pitched at Fenway Park because he stunk there, Indians Alter Hernandez Contract or is That Carmona ' s Contract? The Cleveland Indians still don't know what to do with Roberto Hernandez, a/k/a Fausto Carmona and his role on the team, if any. The club is awaiting the outcome to this messy situation.

Hernandez was recently cleared of false iden- tity charges in the Domini- can Republic. This season he is scheduled to make $2.5 million. He had been sched- uled for $7 million this sea- son but the two-named pitcher lost $5 million in this legal mess of his. Next sea- son he was going to get a $9 million option but that is now dropped to $6 million. How do you say, "You just lost $7.5 million" in another lan- guage? OUCH!

WITNESSI HON. JOAN P ARMSTRONG First Justice of this Court. Date: March 15, 2012 Sandra Giovannucci, Register of Probate Run date: 4/6/12 He is almost 40 years old with a series of injuries slow- ing him down, announced he will retire after this season. Said Jones surrounded by his family, "I have fulfilled every- thing. There is nothing left for me to do." He praised the Atlanta Braves organization and called Bobby Cox, "The greatest manager any of us will ever know. I've been thinking about this and the reason I stayed around is you guys. I played on teams where clubhouse cohesion wasn't there. That never hap- pened with you guys." Jones won the MVP award in 1999 and the NL batting crown in 2008. He played on seven All-Star teams and surely will make it into Cooperstown in the not so distant future. He carries a career .304 batting average with 454 home runs and 1,561 RBI. Beckett Starts Home Opener While Jon Lester opens the season on the road, it is Josh Beckett who gets to pitch the home opener. On paper, Beckett had a better 2011 season but paper isn't always what it seems. Mid-way. through the season, Beckett did his Usual shutdown. He started off like gangbusters .but finished apparently with chicken and beer in the club: house. I still consider lefty Jon Lester the team's ace and think Beckett,needs to have a good season from start to finish or does not belong in the starting rotation in Boston anymore. Lots of money but the return on the money always seems lacking from him. Speaking of Lackey, John needs to show something this year except bad games and a killer high E.R.A. Francona Still Seems 8&^^%$, Doesn't He? Terry Francona still seems pretty angry with the way his last days in Fenway Park went. Most of us remember those last days that amounted to an agonizing month of bad baseball. Francona said he hasn't been invited to the 100 h anniver- sary celebration of Fenway Park this April and probably wouldn't even go if invited. Prior to the 7-20 September Meltdown, Francona was talked about as the best Red Sox manger ever but after September that kind of talk stopped pretty quickly. His first four seasons were tops. Two World Series champion- ships in his first four season as manager but his last four years were pretty much the reliving off the glory of the first four seasons. I still think Dick Williams (1967-69) was the best manager of the Sox in my lifetime. I was glad the Sox signed up Bobby Valentine since he's just the kind of no-non- sense manager the Red Sox need at this junction in the team's history. Bobby V. looks like a mix between Francona and Dick Williams. Here's to hoping the Sox go all the way this year.
