BOSTO N P O STG AZ ETT E.COM > La Russa Goes Out on Top Tony La Russa walked away from major league baseball retiring on his own terms days after managing the St. Louis Cardinals to a World Series title. La Russa told reporters, "I think this just feels like it's time to end it. It's just time to do some- thing else." He spent a total of 33 seasons as a big league manager, totaling 2,728 wins. That is the third most wins of all time behind only Connie Mack and John McGraw. He was best known for changing the way man- agers used their bullpen. He established the role of the closer and was among the first to use right and left handed specialists. Before managing, he played for the Atlletics, Braves and Cubs in the '60s and '70s and batted .199 in six seasons. His first yea r as manager was with the White Sox in 1979 and he spent eight years in Chicago before leaving for Oakland where he took them to three World Series and won it all in 1989. In 1996, he moved on to St. Louis and in-2006 took a team that finished the regular season only two games over five hundred all the way to a World Series title. He won the Manager of the Year Award four times. Tony La Russa is now on his way to Cooperstown and the Hall of F.ame as one of the best managers in base- ball history. EXTRA Innings by Sal Giarratani Sabathia Agrees to New NY Yankees Deal CC Sabathia has decided to continue pitching for the NY Yankees rather than test the free agent market, agreeing to an additional $30 million and one more season giving him a new package that pays $122 mil- lion over the next five years. Said Sabathia, "It was just more time. That's all it was. It was never a question about .money or anything like that. I just want to end my career here." Derek Lowe Returns to AL After toiling a number of years for both the LA Dodgers and Atlanta Braves, lefty Lowe, one of the best sink- ers in the game is leaving the NL for the Cleveland In- dians which acquired him for a minor league pitching prospect. Last year Lowe had a tough season in Atlanta after several 15-16 game winning seasons. The Indi- ans are hoping he will come back in 2012. Ortiz Files for Free Agency It appears Big Papi is look- ing for a three-year deal. He did put up good numbers in 2011, hitting 29 homers, 96 RBI,s and a .309 batting average. Ortiz reportedly is looking in the $10 million range per season. He is also the winner of the Roberto Clemente Award for 2011. Few NL teams seem inter- ested because it is very questionable if Ortiz could actually play first base again since there is no DH in the National League. Keep an eye on Ortiz. He may go or he may stay. Remembering Wilbur Wood Pitcher Wilbur Wood's first three seasons with the Red Sox after graduating from Belmont High in 1960, he went 0-5 with a 4.01 ERA. Not until going to the White Sox in 1967 and learning how to throw a knuckleball from Hall of Famer Hoyt Wilhelm did Wood come into his own. He led the league in appear- ances three straight sea- sons as a relief pitcher. In 1971 at age 29, he joined the starting rotation and was an ironhorse between 1971-75 and led the league in starts over those years. He had a couple of 20 game seasons and in one season actually was both a 20 game winner and a 20 game loser. He was starting over 40 games and throwing over 300 innings with ease. Of course after that stretch of four years, he eventually ruined his left arm and left baseball. Dura- bility had its side effects but while he was good, he was great. Scutaro Returning in "12 The Sox picked up Marco Scutaro's $6 million con- tract. The Sox have the shortstop of the future in Jose Iglesias with the Paw Sox, who isn't ready for prime time yet. This past season he batted .299, the second highest average for all shortstops in baseball. He'll stick around until Iglesias is ready for Fenway.

News should be put at the service of profits and the quicker the better, they thought. Soon the answer to every problem was to water down the product with brutal staff cuts, domestic and for- eign bureau closures, and the pursuit of trivial, celeb- rity-oriented stories.
