Ticket Prices to Increase for Rockies PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Sunday, 08 October 2006 12:00

RockiesFor the first time since 2000, the Colorado Rockies plan to raise ticket prices next season. While the team finished last in the NL West, club president Keli McGregor cited the Rockies' nine-win jump from 2005 and 35 days spent in first place in the division as positive signs of improvement. The club sees that as signs of progress and the "nominal price increase in most areas" will allow the club to continue to grow.

As reported:

Tickets will rise as much as 10 percent, with an infield box seat, for instance, going from $27 per game to $30.

The question on most fans' minds Monday was whether the additional money would be infused into the team's payroll. Owner Dick Monfort said recently that the payroll would go up from last season's $42 million. A final figure, however, won't be determined until budget meetings next week, according to McGregor.

"I don't see why over a period of time we can't keep this core group of players together and we want to improve on  that," McGregor said from his office Monday.

Torre to be Fired as Yankees Manager? PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Sunday, 08 October 2006 02:46

Joe TorreIs Joe Torre's time with the NY Yankees over? The NY Daily News is reporting that Torre will be most likely let go after 11 years with the club. The article also cites that Alex Rodriguez "figures to be shopped on the trade market," as well.

The actions may come after, what many saw as the greatest offensive team ever, fall to the Detroit Tigers in the ALDS. The Yankees won Game 1 of the series but lost the next three.

As reported:

Afterward, Torre choked up on the interview room podium before composing himself. Like others, he seemed stunned. Critics wondered why he did not play Melky Cabrera earlier in the series or how he could use a neophyte first baseman such as Gary Sheffield in the playoffs, but the overriding fact was that the $200 million Yankees were overflowing with talent and it still wasn't even close to enough.

"I'm stunned," GM Brian Cashman said. "This team fooled me, to some degree."

That could be taken as a sign that changes are imminent, but Cashman gave no sign that Torre's situation was tenuous and the Yankee skipper did not offer any indication that he was concerned about his fate.

"What can the manager do? It is not his job to play the game for us," Mariano Rivera said. "It is the players who play."

Dick Wagner Dead at 78 PDF Print E-mail

Our condolences to the Wagner family... 

Dick Wagner, the former GM and President of the Cincinnati Reds and Astros has died from complications due to a car accident in 1999. Wagner was 78.

Wagner joined the Reds in 1967 as Assistant GM, a position he held till 1978 (official titles during this time were: Assistant to Executive Vice President ('67-'73) Assistant to President (1974), Vice President, Administrative ('75-'76), Executive Vice President and General Manager (1977)).

On February 2, 1978, Wagner became GM of the Reds, a position he held under different titles until he left the club in 1983 (official title during this time was President and Chief Executive Officer). Wagner was hired on September 13, 1985 by the Astros, where he was the GM (official title President and General Manager). He resigned from the club on October 23, 1987.

As reported:

"Dick Wagner dedicated his life to the game of baseball," Commissioner Bud Selig said in a statement released on Friday evening. "He played an integral role with the Cincinnati Reds during the heyday of the 'Big Red Machine', serving as general manager and later president of the club during the late-1970s and early '80s. After a term as the president of the Houston Astros in the early '90s, at my request, he oversaw our New York offices and helped build our organization to what it is today.

"All of us in baseball will miss him. My sympathies and condolences go out to his wife, Gloria, and to his family and friends. Baseball has lost another of its true gentlemen."

The Reds won consecutive World Series championships in 1975-76 with Wagner and general manager Bob Howsam as the architects. When Howsam stepped aside following the 1977 season, Wagner assumed control of the Reds' baseball operations.

An opponent of the free agent movement, Wagner tried to stem the rising tide of expensive player salaries and was part of one of the more difficult eras in the club's history. Big Red Machine stalwarts Pete Rose, George Foster and Don Gullett left the club and popular manager Sparky Anderson was dismissed.

Terry Pendleton to Inverview with Nats PDF Print E-mail

Friday, 06 October 2006 12:00

Terry PendletonTerry Pendleton will interview this coming week with the Washington Nationals. The Nationals fired Frank Robinson on September 30th and plan to interview Lou Pinella and Joe Girardi, as well, for the vacancy.

As reported:

The Nationals received permission from Braves general manager John Schuerholz to talk to Pendleton, 46, a former National League MVP who has served five seasons as Atlanta's hitting coach. He's scheduled to meet next week with Nationals general manager Jim Bowden, who will come to Atlanta for the interview.

A person familiar with the situation said Pendleton, who has three children ages 5, 14 and 16, would have to be "blown away" by any offer before he'd consider leaving Atlanta, where his family lives year-round.

The Los Angeles native was a leading candidate for the Dodgers' managerial post last year, but Pendleton pulled out before the final interview, citing his desire to be with his family in Atlanta during the season.

Written by Press Release   
Friday, 06 October 2006 06:31
RedsCincinnati Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky yesterday named Scott Nethery assistant GM, senior director of professional scouting.

In 1986 and 1987 he served as an assistant coach at Duke University before joining the professional scouting ranks.
 
DRays to Continue Free Parking in '07 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Press Release   
Friday, 06 October 2006 05:14
Devil RaysRays Principal Owner Stuart Sternberg announced on Thursday that the Tampa Bay Devil Rays will once again provide free parking for the 2007 season.

One year ago, upon assuming control of the organization, Mr. Sternberg eliminated the $10.00 per vehicle parking fee on team-controlled parking lots at Tropicana Field for all home games during the 2006 season. Today, he extended free parking for a second and final season.

"For one more season, we are foregoing parking revenue. This is an investment in our future. Free parking enhances the accessibility of our home games. It compels fans to come visit Tropicana Field, where they will have a fantastic experience," Sternberg said.

"I am very encouraged by the region's response to all of our initiatives. It has only solidified my confidence in our collective ability to build and sustain a franchise of which we can all be proud."
 
Judge Releases Anderson PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Thursday, 05 October 2006 06:10

 Barry Bonds' personal trainer, Greg Anderson, was released from prison today due to what U.S. District Judge William Alsup deemed a "snafu" regarding the courts findings prior.

"This snafu has arisen by an apparent failure by the court to be clear of its findings," Alsup said.

As reported:

Anderson, who served three months in prison and three months of home detention for his conviction, has appealed his contempt jailing on several fronts, including that his plea deal prevented him from having to cooperate with authorities.

Alsup has dismissed his claims, but the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal sent Anderson's appeal back to the judge to clarify the original contempt order, which might have averted Anderson's release.

Anderson, 40, could be returned to prison when the appeals court affirms the Aug. 28 contempt citation.
