He didn't get job done Juan C. Rodriguez Sun Sentinel Somebody has to wear it, and for lack of a better alternative, it should have been Terry Francona. General manager Theo Epstein said Francona would not be branded the scapegoat. Teams don't lose nine-game September leads and not have a scapegoat. Are others more deserving? Probably, but what are the Red Sox to do? Release John Lackey and eat the remaining $45.75 million on his deal? Admit Carl Crawford was a bust and make a request that he proves worthy of the $122 million owed him?

Each morning, Monday through Friday, I'll hook you up with reading material to skim through as you slug down coffee and slack off at the start of your workday -- that way I'll have an excuse to do the same at the start of mine.   Running it back: Robert Andino hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the Red Sox on Wednesday night. Fewer than five minutes later, down in St. Petersburg, Evan Longoria hit a walk-off home run to officially knock Boston out of the playoffs.

Good morning --Theo Epstein -- Your decision to leave the Red Sox was personal? Like in The Godfather? QUESTION OF THE DAY Was the Ravens defense more enjoyable to watch without Ray Lewis on the field? No! I need my weekly fix of Ray smashing running backs and pointing to his biceps. His intensity was sorely missed on the final defensive stand Monday night. Rob LaHart Glen Burnie Yes! While Ray danced, speed and youth danced on the field. The game has changed. The pass now sets up the run. Change is good and more enjoyable to watch.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he doesn't remember specifically criticizing New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter or Boston Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein, but said he likely did. The comments were part of a profile of the Orioles manager in the April edition of Men's Journal, months after Showalter was interviewed by the magazine during a lunch meeting in Dallas. "We were sitting down at a table laughing about different stuff, and three or four months later, somebody brings it up as a quote and it's newsworthy," Showalter said.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter called his Red Sox counterpart , Terry Francona , before Sunday's game between the teams to address his recently published comments about Boston general manager Theo Epstein . "I just felt like I owed him a call. I know Terry, and I like him a lot. I have a lot of respect for him," Showalter said. He didn't provide details as to the nature of the call. The issue arose after Francona was again asked about Showalter's recent comments in a Men's Journal article before the Orioles' 4-3 victory Sunday over Boston.

BOSTON - Theo Epstein got his start in baseball as a summer intern with the Orioles in 1992, and as he stood amid the celebration in the Boston Red Sox clubhouse last night, it was clear this kid had come a long way. This wasn't some ordinary 29-year-old, drenched in champagne. In his first year as Red Sox general manager, Epstein has assembled the most devastating lineup in baseball, and it went into full flex mode as Boston clinched its first playoff berth in four years with a 14-3 drubbing of the Orioles at Fenway Park.

The offseason is off to a pretty good start for the Orioles, for what that's worth. The Boston Red Sox apparently have lost boy wonder general manager Theo Epstein - an unmistakable blow to one of the Orioles' chief rivals. Former Orioles GM Pat Gillick - the best in the business, in my opinion - was looking for a job but didn't sign with the Red Sox or New York Yankees, instead taking on the task of turning the Philadelphia Phillies into a playoff team. (He will.) The Los Angeles Dodgers first fired their manager and then fired their general manager in the middle of his search for a new manager, proving that the Orioles, even after eight straight losing seasons, don't own the copyright on organizational dysfunction.

AL EAST Yankees Starting point: 103-59, 1st (beat Twins in first round, Angels in ALCS and Phillies in World Series). Project manager: Brian Cashman. General contractor: Joe Girardi. Bones: The free agent spending binge of 2009 contributed to the Yankees winning their first championship since 2000, but the team wasn't as deep as its record suggests. Girardi used only three starting pitchers in the playoffs. New materials: CF/leadoff Curtis Granderson, RHP Javier Vazquez, DH-1B Nick Johnson, OF Randy Winn, OF Marcus Thames, LHP Boone Logan.

Theo Epstein Boston general manager, on the Red Sox's image "Even the most well-stocked hardware store runs out of duct tape and baling wire every so often, and that might be the case for the heretofore resourceful Patriots." Len Pasquarelli Of ESPN.com "I've got to give Melo the `best summer' award. He's been in the gym with our coaches as much as anybody. He's listened."
