DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 12/28/12 Run date: 12/28/12 Youk Wearing Pinstripes Now Former Boston Red Sox player Kevin Youkilis has now signed up to play for the Evil Empire. The dreaded NY Yankees agreed to a one- year, $12 million deal. On Opening Da~ he will be in the lineup at ~hird base as Alex Rodriguez is expected to sit out the first half of the 2013 following hip surgery. Terry Francona's Indians were giving him a good look over and an expected $18 million, two year deal until the Tribe signed Mark Reynolds. Playing for Bobby Valentine last season, Youk was hitting only .233 before getting traded to the White Sox where he hit 15 home runs. He had been an 8th round pick by the Cin- cinnati Reds back in 2001. He was on three All-Star teams and won a Gold Glove with the Sox at first base in 2007. DiSarcina New Paw Sox Manager The Red Sox have named Billerica native and ex- Angels shortstop Gary DiSarcina as their manager at Triple A Pawtucket. From 2007-2009, he served as manager of another Boston minor league affiliate, the Lowell Spinners. After a short tenure back in Cali- fornia with the Angels' front office, he is now the PawSox manager in 2013. DiSarcina was a 6th round draft of the Angels out of UMass back in 1988. He had a 12- year career in the majors as a defensive shortstop and made the All-Star game back in 1995. Pedro Still Longs' for Boston Former Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez, according to a Bos- ton Globe report, would like to rejoin the Sox upstairs in the front office. Said Pedro, "That's what I want to do, I want to be there ... and see if I like the office or if I like it more on the field." He says he doesn't wish to coach fulltime but likes the idea of being a special assistant to the general manager like Jason Varitek is now with Ben Cherington. Boston fans remember Pedro quite well as a three-time Cy Young winner with a 2.93 ERA over LEGAL NOTICE MICHAEL SORRENTINO (AGENT) 95 CRESCENT AVE., SUITE 107 REVERE, MA 02151 (617)347-9104 (781) 286-8402 (fax) TO OWNER OR OWNERS OF THE FOLLOWING VEHICLES, IF YOU COULD SHOW PROOF OF OWNERSHIP, PLEASE CONTACT THE ABOVE NUMBERS, VEHICLES NOT CLAIMED IN 21 DAYS WILL BE SOLD AT PRIVATE SALE. 2000 HONDA CIVIC VI N #1HG EM1150YL123142 2007 RANGE ROVER VIN #SALSK25467A118464 2004 MAZDA HATCH VIN #1YVFP84D745N72123 SUBMITTED BY MICHAEL SORRENTINO (AGENT) Run dates: 12/14, 12/21, 12/28,2012 by Sal Giarratani 18 seasons and 3,154 strike- outs. During his time with the Sox, he was 117- 37 with a 2.52 ERA in those great seven years in Boston. Pedro is hoping that he can help the Sox bounce back quickly from its current bad times. Let's hope this all comes to pass for the Sox and Pedro too. Angels Deal Morales The Los Angeles Angels picked up some needed pitching depth and the Seattle Mariners picked up some power. These two AL West foes found a way to help one another. The Angels tradecb switch-hitting slugger Kendrys Morales to the Mariners for left-handed pitcher Jason Vargas. Suzuki Signs Up Again The NY Yankees and Ichiro Suzuki now have a new $13 million, two-year deal that keeps 10-time All-Star in New York. The 39-year-old will make $6.5 million for the next two seasons. He was obtained from the Mariners this past July 23rd. His bat- ting average jumped from .261 in Seattle to .322 with the Yankees with 5 homers, 27 RBIs and 14 stolen bases. He is a 10-time Gold Glove outfielder and now has 2,606 hits in his 12 big league seasons. The Dodgers, Mucho Money and Greinke When the LA Dodgers picked up Zack Greinke, 29, with a $147 million, 6-year deal, it represented about $24.5 million per season, the highest annual salary ever for a pitcher on a multi- year deal, surpassing C.C. Sabathia's annual salary with the NY Yankees. Greinke was the AL Cy Young winner for the K.C. Royals back in 2009. Since then, he has pitched for both Brewers and the LA Angels. He won 16 games with the Brewers in 2011 helping them win their first division title in 29 years. Last sea- son, he was 15-5 with a 3.48 ERA between Milwau- kee and Los Angeles. Last year the Dodgers emerged from bankruptcy and are now a member of the top three spenders in baseball. Their opening day payroll in 2012 was $105 million. Right now, their payroll is about $200 million. Did you know that the top three payrolls are all out west with the LA Dodgers, LA Angels and San Francisco Giants all leading the way in all of baseball? A-Rod Wants to Return to the Bronx Alex Rodriguez, 37, had surgery on his right hip in 2009, missed the first month of the season and still finished with 30 homers and 100 RBIs. However, now he needs surgery on his left hip which will take place next month. This operation is said to be more complex. A- Rod will now be making his sixth trip to the D.L. in six seasons and could be side- lined until the 2013 All-Star is fully committed to a very hard road back. He would like to forget last season. In the post-season, he batted .120 with no RBIs. He finished the 2012 season batting .272 with 18 homers and 57 RBIs. Back over the last month of the season and into the playoffs, he stunk big time to the point of getting too many "Bronx Salutes" from NY Yankees fans. llanrahan Could be Coming Soon to Sox Bullpen The Red Sox are looking to shore up their bullpen:tand are looking at Pirates.~ser Joel, i, Hater ah ari,~ oh~aafi se the Boston Red Sox brass seems to like him. The right-hander's 2012 season wasn't as good as 2011 but not really that bad. In 2011 he earned 40 saves with a 1.83 ERA. This past season, he had 36 saves and a 2.72 ERA. Closer material in my book. Right now the Sox and Dodgers seem to be in the hunt for his services. Pitts- burgh is looking for a good starting pitcher and the Sox reportedly seem inter- ested in giving up either Frankie Morales or Alfredo Acev.es. If the Pirates want Felix Doubront it could be a deal-breaker for us and Hanra-han could end-up wearing Dodger blue. Cubs Get Jackson and Meanwhile ... The Chicago Cubs have agreed to a 4-year, $52 mil- lion deal with right-handed pitcher Edwin Jackson. The 29 year old went 10-11 with a 4.03 ERA with the Wash- ington Nationals last sea- son. Meanwhile, the Texas Rangers have come to terns with catcher A.J. Pierzyn~ki on a one-year contract. -Ie hit .278 with 27 home rms and 77 RBIs for the Whte Sox this past season and ~he Philadelphia Phillies seerr~ed to have gotten Jonathan Papelbon a new set-up guy in Mike Adams who just signed a 2-year, $12 million deal. The 34-year-old was 5-3 with 3.27 ERA last year for the Rangers.

During he tail-end of last season in Texas, he posted a 5.09 E~Jk in 12 starts. His best season in his career was back in 2008 when he went 17-6 with a 2.96 ERA.
