Albert Pujols' agent, Dan Lozano , is expected to talk contract extension with Cardinals Chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. and GM John Mozeliak during the winter meetings. Pujols is due $16 million in 2011, the last year of his deal, but is likely to seek $25 million or more per year for eight-plus years in a new deal, with Alex Rodriguez's 10-year, $275 million deal with the Yankees the standard. … The A's may turn their attention toward Hideki Matsui after being rejected by Lance Berkman and Adrian Beltre.

One year after trying, unsuccessfully, to lure Japanese slugger Hideki Matsui to Baltimore, the Orioles are considering making a push for the player known as "Little Matsui." Kazuo Matsui, a switch-hitting shortstop for the Seibu Lions of the Japanese Pacific League, declared his intention to test the major league free-agent market on Thursday, and the Orioles could be one of his heaviest pursuers. The Orioles are a logical choice because they have the money to spend this offseason, and they have a need at shortstop.

Trembley ejected: : Orioles manager Dave Trembley was ejected after the second inning, arguing a reversal of a call that originally had Melvin Mora on second base rather than striking out. Mora had swung through a pitch that appeared to hit the dirt before bouncing into catcher Ivan Rodriguez's glove. Rodriguez didn't tag Mora, who eventually started running. But crew chief Joe West ruled that Mora had abandoned his chance to get on base by walking toward the dugout. The defense rests: : Jeremy Guthrie should have gotten out of the first without giving up a run. Juan Castro's relay throw beat Johnny Damon, who was trying to score from first on Alex Rodriguez's two-out double, to home by a large margin, but catcher Ramon Hernandez didn't block the plate.

Kazuo Matsui was talking to the Japanese press last week about possibly leaving the country to play Major League Baseball, when a reporter asked him if he had given any thought to playing for the Baltimore Orioles. Matsui, a seven-time all-star and four-time gold glove-winning shortstop in Japan, said he didn't know much about Baltimore, the city. But he knew plenty about a certain guy who used to play shortstop for the Orioles: Cal Ripken. In November 1996, Matsui was invited to play in the annual series between some of the top players from North America and Japan.

NEW YORK - Rather than continue to be manipulated by a supposed curse, the kind that can torment a franchise for 85 years and be used to explain away every failure, the Boston Red Sox appear determined to pound it into submission. They took a few more swings last night, raising some welts and the expectations of their loyal following. Unwilling to yield to an unfavorable pitching matchup, a weakened lineup and constant reminders of their postseason glitches, the Red Sox hit three home runs off Mike Mussina and seized early control of the American League Championship Series with a 5-2 victory over the New York Yankees in Game 1 at Yankee Stadium.

BOSTON - As if this rivalry hasn't been cruel enough for the Boston Red Sox, as if they hadn't given their fans enough reason for heartbreak, Game 3 of the American League Championship Series sent them spinning to new emotional lows. In a game that history said they had to win, the Red Sox spent three innings absorbing the New York Yankees' punches, coming back with some haymakers of their own. Heading into the fourth inning last night, this one was tied at six runs apiece. But then, with the same cold, calculating precision that has defined their team for the past decade - this time personified by the likes of Alex Rodriguez, Gary Sheffield and Hideki Matsui - the Yankees reeled off 11 consecutive runs and rolled to a 19-8 victory before 35,126 at Fenway Park.

The lump in Lee Mazzilli's throat last night didn't come from being sentimental in his third game managing against the New York Yankees. This series was just too much for one man to swallow. Trying to make a statement about their legitimacy as contenders, the Orioles were reminded how far they have to go, and how unabashed the Yankees are when it comes to flaunting their superiority -- even against their former first base coach. Subdued for four innings, the Yankees burst for eight runs in the fifth while chasing Sidney Ponson, batted around twice, and completed their sweep with an 18-5 victory at Camden Yards that left their opponent bruised and embarrassed.
