General Manager Omar Minaya and Manager Jerry Manuel will not be retained by the New York Mets, according to multiple media reports Friday. "It sounds like everybody's got me written off, but nobody's told me I'm written off," Manuel told MLB.com. He said he had not discussed his status with his superiors. The search for a new manager figures to take a while since the Mets are expected to first hire a general manager, who then will have input into the decision on a new manager.

CHICAGO - When the Angels got Josh Hamilton following the Dodgers' signing of Zack Greinke , owner Arte Moreno emerged from hiding, took a bow and told everyone: "Think about how much fun it's going to be.

"Play ball!" Major League umpires won't shout those magical words in the Southland for nearly two more months. Can't wait that long? Then plan a jaunt to Arizona, where the Angels and 11 other teams will play in the Cactus League. In late March, they'll be joined by the Dodgers, who are moving their spring training from Florida to Arizona. It's all just a short flight -- or an easy drive -- from L.A.

Rocktober has swept Colorado, but more than 50,000 tickets remain unsold for the three World Series games that could be played between the Rockies and Boston Red Sox at Coors Field.
