GLYNN CEO AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 11/9/12 Yankees Hold on to Cane and Granderson The NY Yankees have de- cided to keep second base- man Robinson Cano and out- fielder Curtis Granderson for next season. Cano hit .313 with 33 homers and 94 RBIs in 012. This past season Granc,erson hit 43 homers with 106 RBIs but only hit .232. The New York Yankees were swept by the Tigers in the Championship series with both Cano and Granderson horrible in those games. One Good Sweep Deserves Another The Tigers swept the Yan- kees in the ALeS but were then themselves swept by the San Francisco Giants in the World Series. Mean- while, Venezuelan fans were celebrating the selection of the Giants' slugger Pablo Sandoval as the first Ven- ezuelan Most Valuable Player in a World Series. Hall of Famer Luis Aparicio, who finished off his great baseball career with the Red Sox, congratulated Pablo for his great performance in the World Series. By the way, it appears no one was watch- ing the World Series this year as these games set a record low for TV ratings. Lincecum for Ellsbury It seems when Jacoby Ellsbury isn't having a MVP- like season, he's injured as he was in 2012 and 2010. He was great in 2011 without getting banged up. Is it worth considering a deal with the Giants for former 2-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum? This past season was his worst in his career when he went 10-15 with a 5.18 ERA in 186 innings with 190 strikeouts in 33 starts. In his previous four seasons, he averaged 16-9 with a 2.81 ERA and 244 Ks in 220 ST. JUDE AND ST. ANTHONY NOVENA May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world now and for- ever. Sacred Heart of Jesus pray for us. St. Jude, worker of miracles, pray for us. St. Jude, help of the hopeless, pray for us. St. Anthony, most loving protector and wonder worker, pray for us. Say this prayer 9 times a day and by the 8th day your prayer will be answered. It has never been known to fail. Publication must be promised. My prayers have been answered. Favor received. D.A. EXTRA Innings by Sal Giarratani innings. The Sox need an- other good starter and Lincecum over his career minus 2012 could fit the bill if he snaps back into his pre- vious stats. Ortiz Re-signs for" Two More Seasons The Red Sox and Dave Ortiz have agreed, on a 2- year deal worth $26 million plus $4 million more in in- centives. Ortiz made $14.57 million last season on a one-year deal. He only played in 90 games in 2012 and only one after July 16. He however did bat .314 with 23 home runs and 63 RBIs. We shall see if this big gamble pays off for the Sox. What About Napoli at First Base? The Red Sox at the mo- ment are looking at older first basemen as a short term fix. There are some younger first basemen out there too who could be a short term answer while the Sox put their act together. According to Mike Fine, a fine sports writer for the Pa- triots Ledger, Mike Napoli might be a very good pick up by the Sox. He has hit at least 20 homers in five straight seasons. Last sea- son, he only batted .227 with the Rangers. He can play both first base and be a backup catcher too. Soupds interesting. A's Bring Back Suspended Colon Suspended pitcher Bartolo Colon will be brought back to the Oakland Athletics agree- ing on a one-year deal worth $3 million. The 39-year-61d pitcher was suspended last season for 50 games because he tested positive for juicing himself up.

WITNESS, Hon. Joan P. Armstrong, First Justice of this Court. Date: October 19, 2012 Sandra Giovannucci, Register of Probate Run date: 11t2 Young winner was sus- pended on August 22 and went 10-9 with a 3.43 ERA in 24 starts in 2012. Colon won the Cy back in 2005 af- ter going 21-8 for the Angels. This year will be his 16 th season in the majors. Per- sonally, I think the A's should have done a colonos- copy with him in Oakland. My opinion. Rivera Wants to Return in 2013 All time saves leader Mariano Rivera wants to re- turn next season for his NY Yankees. He turns 43 next month. Rivera has 608 life- time saves. If Rivera returns and with his old form, that will be big news in the Bronx. Meanwhile, Rafael Soriano who earned 42 saves for the Yankees this past season opted out of the final season of his 3-year contract and will likely turn to free agency. I would try and keep him on the Yankees if I were the Yankees unless they know Rivera is ready to go full steam again. Soriano filled in quite well in New York this year taking the team to first place in the AL East. Chicago Isn't Youk's Kind of Town, Chicago Isn't! Sounds like an old Frank Sinatra song, doesn't it? The White Sox declined his 813 million option so Kevin Youkilis will apparently be looking for another team to land on, in what appears to be the twilight of his career. In 2012, Youk hit .236 with 15 homers in 80 games in Chicago. Meanwhile, Chicago Did Keep ... The Chicago White Sox has signed up Jake Peavy for a new 2-year deal worth $29 million. The Cy Young Award winner back in 2007 was 11-12 with a 3.37 ERA in 32 starts this past season. His three previous seasons were injury riddled. He helped Chicago finish sec- ond in the AL Central and apparently is seen as a big part of the 2013 starting rotation. Good for him.
