BOSTON - The link between Boston Red Sox Manager John Farrell and former boss Terry Francona remains strong, although there has been less dialogue between them during the World Series. "We talked more probably in the division and Championship Series," Farrell said Wednesday night before Game 6 against the St. Louis Cardinals. "We already reach out to one another, either in a brief text [message] or an occasional phone call when you have a chance to ask him some questions.

In four minor-league seasons, John Farrell lost 41 of 65 decisions. But the right-hander's six-week stint with the Cleveland Indians at the end of last season has the team convinced he can become a mainstay of the pitching rotation. Farrell, called up to the Indians on Aug. 18 after going 6-12 in 25 games with Buffalo of the American Association, pitched an inning of relief that night and was the winner in a 9-8 decision over Milwaukee.

Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis will be offering his analysis throughout the World Series. Ellis, 32, recently completed his second full season as a starter for the Dodgers by batting .333 in a National League division series against the Atlanta Braves and .316 in the NL Championship Series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Ellis is familiar with the Boston Red Sox, a team the Dodgers faced during the regular season. The final play of the game came in an inning that will be analyzed and second-guessed for what Red Sox Manager John Farrell should have done.

One of the most dubious practices of the business world is making people pay to pay - charging customers money so they can give the company money. Want to pay by credit card? That'll cost you. Want to pay by phone? That'll cost you. Want to pay using a fully automated, no-human-being-anywhere-in-sight computer system? That'll cost you. And then there's the wireless company MetroPCS, which takes things to a whole other level by charging customers a $3 fee to pay their bill in person at a MetroPCS store, even in cash.

Former Cleveland pitcher John Farrell was back in the majors Friday--or back in a major league clubhouse, at least. Farrell, 30, hasn't pitched in the majors since 1990 and is recovering from two elbow surgeries. The Angels signed him in February as a long-term project. Now, after a summer of rehabilitating in Mesa, Ariz., he is in Anaheim to continue his work and pitch in simulated games, where the Angel staff can evaluate him. He is scheduled to go to Instructional League this fall.

John Farrell sat slumped in front of his locker, his voice flat and lifeless. He has spent the last three years trying to save his baseball career, despite two reconstructive elbow surgeries. He began pitching in mid-December to prepare himself for spring training, knowing it would be the most critical camp of his career, that he would be judged solely on performance and results. That is why his outing in the Angels' 11-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers was so traumatic for him Tuesday.

BOSTONĀ  - Jake Peavy hasn't forgotten the first words Jonny Gomes said to him on his first day in the Fenway Park home clubhouse after his trade from the Chicago White Sox. "I asked how Jonny was doing, and his quote to me was, 'Just a day closer to the parade, Jake. Doing well. Just check this one off the list.' "It took me a minute to realize what that meant," Peavy said Monday. "I said, 'Oh my God. He's talking about the World Series parade.' This is the last day of July.

Vicente Padilla took a no-hitter into the seventh inning at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday night. That was not a big story, not this year. In April, Ubaldo Jimenez pitched the first no-hitter in the history of the Colorado Rockies. On July 26, Matt Garza pitched the first no-hitter in the history of the Tampa Bay Rays, the fifth in the first four months of the season. The outbreak of no-hitters reflects a larger change in the national pastime. After an era in which the home run was celebrated above all, pitchers have gained the upper hand.

John Farrell's toughest task this spring isn't striking out batters, it is convincing the Angels that he is a viable candidate for a spot in their starting rotation. A two-year absence from the game to recover from reconstructive arm surgery is certain to cast doubts in the minds of many, and Farrell, who last pitched in the majors on Sept. 27, 1990, knows that well. "I'm sure it's always in the back of other people's minds," said Farrell, a starter for the Cleveland Indians from 1987 to 1990.

John Farrell stood on the Anaheim Stadium mound Thursday, carrying a great weight on his shoulders. There was a lot riding on this performance, perhaps more than any Angel start this season. He knew that, but he also believed he wasn't the same pitcher he was the last time he pitched here. He still had to prove it to Angel management and the 20,595 fans. If Farrell fared poorly in his first major league start since Sept.

Angel officials met Monday to discuss the team's poor pitching but decided to make no decisions for the time being. "Right now, we're going to stay where we are," Manager Buck Rodgers said. "We're re-evaluating, trying to decide if what we've got here is going to be better or what we have (in the minors) is going to be better." Rodgers is reluctant to call up John Farrell or Russ Springer--the two most obvious candidates for a spot in the rotation--from triple-A Vancouver.
