A 10-year stint in the Angels organization, including the last two as a big league reserve, came to an abrupt end for Bobby Wilson on Monday when the catcher was claimed off waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays, a move that clears the way for Hank Conger to be the Angels' No. 2 catcher. "I wasn't expecting the phone call, and I don't know what to think of it, but it's time to move forward," said Wilson, a solid defensive player who batted .211 in 75 games last season. As a player entering his first year of arbitration, Wilson, who made $487,500 last season, would have cost the Angels a little more than they will pay Conger, a first-round pick in 2006, next season.

Knowing the system and being relatively cheap, I thought it was a good situation for me.” As a player entering his first year of arbitration, Wilson, who made $487,500 last season, would have cost the Angels a little more than they will pay Conger, a first-round pick in 2006, next season.

The Boston Red Sox thought Bobby Valentine would restore order to a coddled clubhouse that disintegrated during the 2011 pennant race. Instead, he only caused more problems. The brash manager was fired on Thursday, the day after the finale of a season beset with internal sniping and far too many losses. Valentine went 69-93 in his only year in Boston, the ballclub's worst season in almost 50 years. :: Sandy Alomar Jr. , who guided Cleveland in its final six games after Manny Acta was fired last week, interviewed to become the Indians' full-time manager.

Bobby Valentine was fired by the Boston Red Sox on Thursday after going 69-93 in his only season as the team's manager. Valentine, who led the New York Mets to the National League pennant in 2000, was brought in during the off-season after former manager Terry Francona lost control of the clubhouse as the Red Sox fell out of the playoff race down the stretch last season. But the 62-year-old baseball veteran wasn't able to right the ship. “Our 2012 season was disappointing for many reasons,” General Manager Ben Cherington said.

It just has not been a great year for Bobby Valentine. Not only is he heavily rumored to be on his way out as Boston Red Sox manager after one of the most disappointing seasons in the team's history, he can't seem to ride his bike safely. On Tuesday, Valentine was riding his bike in Central Park in New York, where the Red Sox were playing the Yankees, when he got a text message from Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia. Figuring he could ride and read at the same time, Valentine started reading the message while continuing to pedal.

Though it's mostly one-sided and sometimes plays like a commercial for the alternative medical community, "Doctored" makes a cogent case for real cooperation between Western medicine and less traditional protocols. Writer-director Bobby Sheehan (he also produced and shot the documentary) begins by exploring chiropractic care and presents a case that, despite mainstream medicine's longtime crusade to brand it "quackery," it is a highly viable, at times superior alternative to standard surgery and prescription therapy.

Bobby Green's new bar, Sassafras, is south of Hollywood Boulevard, near Fountain. But it might as well be south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Step inside and you'll see an actual Savannah, Ga., town house that was disassembled, trucked to Hollywood and reassembled inside the bar. The resulting ambience in the 3,500-square-foot room proves you can take the house out of the South, but you can't take the South out of the house. "Nothing here is bought from a store," says Green of his latest, most ambitious project, which took nearly two years to complete and is also his first bar to host live music - Southern roots, brass and jazz.

Bobby Wilson has been Twitter-free for a month now. His daily utterances have regularly exceeded 140 characters, but he has remained strong. No rehab has been necessary and a relapse is not likely. Wilson is the Angels reserve catcher. He is a blue-collar guy with a wife and 9-month-old daughter. He is grateful to be in the major leagues and understands that if he ends up in Cooperstown, it will not be in any hall. As a matter of fact, that was exactly what he expressed on Aug. 9, when he said he was kicking the habit, that he was closing down his Twitter account.
