CHICAGO - Former all-star third baseman Robin Ventura is replacing the fiery Ozzie Guillen as manager of the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox said that Ventura agreed to a multiyear deal Thursday. A longtime star with the White Sox, Ventura was hired by the club last June as a special adviser to director of player development Buddy Bell. Guillen was released from his contract with one year remaining after eight seasons with the White Sox and immediately was hired by the Florida Marlins as their manager.

The Phillies' outfield situation is muddled, and not necessarily with an array of players who are certain to figure into their future. Here's a look at other outfielders in the minors who could see time with the Phillies this season or in the future. Domonic Brown: The Phillies don't seem in any rush to recall Brown, who before his spring training injury was penciled in as their everyday rightfielder. He entered the weekend hitting only .222 in triple A. Brian Bogusevic: The 31-year-old Bogusevic has hit well at triple A. He entered the weekend hitting.

Chris Widger, the 1989 Pennsville graduate who was a catcher on the Chicago White Sox' 2005 World Series championship team, has been named the new manager of the Camden Riversharks of the independent Atlantic League. Widger, who remains a Pennsville resident, served as the Riversharks pitching coach the previous two years.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Many questioned his judgment, Terry Francona said. After one year off following a successful eight-year run as manager in Boston that included two World Series titles, Francona took over as manager of the Cleveland Indians this season. The job appeared almost as bleak as when he earned his first managerial position with the Phillies in 1997. "A lot of people were saying, 'What are you doing?' " Francona said Tuesday before his Indians won a crucial 5-3 game against the host Kansas City Royals in a playoff-like atmosphere for two teams contending for a wild-card berth.

RYAN ZIMMERMAN delivered a two-run double after Bryce Harper was intentionally walked in the fourth inning, and the Washington Nationals beat the visiting Chicago White Sox, 7-4, on a windy Thursday night to cap a three-game sweep. Dan Haren (1-1) got the win despite allowing 10 hits in five innings. With the score tied at three in the fourth, Haren helped himself by doubling off Dylan Axelrod (0-1) and eventually scoring on a wild pitch with two outs. Chicago then put Harper on base on purpose, but the move didn't work: Cleanup hitter Zimmerman lined a double to right on Axelrod's 103rd - and final - pitch of the evening.

Six seasons ago, Josh Fields was a 24-year-old rookie third baseman who mashed 23 home runs in 100 games and was seen as a future cornerstone of the Chicago White Sox. You know, the kind of guy the Phillies currently dream of to fill a gaping hole. He has played in 106 major-league games since 2007, been labeled as a first-round bust, and is now the property of the Phillies as he attempts to revive a career that has taken him from Arkansas to Japan to Albuquerque. Fields is the Phillies' first minor-league free agent signing, as reported by Baseball America.

The Boston Red Sox brought John Farrell back to Fenway Park on Sunday. The Red Sox hired Farrell to be their new manager after pursuing him for more than a year, agreeing to trade infielder Mike Aviles to the Blue Jays to pry their former pitching coach out of the manager's chair in Toronto. Farrell had been the Toronto manager the last two seasons, posting a 154-170 record with two fourth-place finishes. He had one year remaining on his contract with the Blue Jays, allowing them to demand compensation from Boston.

BALTIMORE - I still cannot answer the question about the tree falling with no one around, but one would think a wooden bat connecting with a 95-mph fastball sounds the same in a major league stadium with no fans as one with 20,000, 30,000 or 40,000 fans. It's that distinctive "Crack!" I've heard it hundreds of thousands of times in my life as a baseball fan and my career as a sports journalist. Yesterday in Orioles Park at Camden Yards, however, the crack sounded a little different to me. This time, when a player for the Baltimore Orioles or the Chicago White Sox hit the ball, that "Crack" had a tinge of sadness sprinkled with a bit of anger.

BALTIMORE - Everything was so clear and sharp: the crack of the bat, the thwock of the ball into the catcher's mitt, the clip-clop of cleats against a dugout's concrete steps and floor. Every noise had an easily identifiable source. You could hear a photographer's camera click and know exactly where he was positioned. You could hear an infielder call for a pop-up and feel as if you, too, should peel off and let him take it. You could see a home run cut through the sky, clear the right-field bleachers, land on a city street . . . and hear nothing in the aftermath.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The list of guest instructors the Phillies have invited to spring training in recent years includes Hall of Famers (Mike Schmidt), Wall of Famers (Charlie Manuel) and World Series heroes (Brad Lidge). Many others are Phillies-lifer types, like Larry Andersen and Dave Hollins. But during Alumni Weekend last August, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. reached out to a former Phillies player who spent just two seasons with the team. Aaron Rowand accepted the invitation and arrived at camp on Sunday.

Los Angeles Dodgers righthander Josh Beckett bucked the conventional baseball superstition by talking about a no-hitter as early as the fourth inning Sunday. While pitchers usually sit alone in the dugout, Beckett was chatty, making jokes about his no-hitter until the extraordinary feat was finally accomplished. Beckett finished it off by getting Chase Utley on a called third strike, earning his first career no-hitter in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
