METS PITCHING coach Dan Warthen said yesterday that he meant no harm when he lobbed an Asian slur at Jeff Cutler, who serves as a translator for Japanese-born righthander Daisuke Matsuzaka. "I issued the statement, I put out the apology, I am sticking by the statement," said Warthen, who pitched three games for the Phillies in 1977. "I've already made the apologies to all the appropriate people . . . I made a mistake, I owned up to it, it will not happen again. " The Wall Street Journal's Stu Woo reported that he was present when Warthen approached Cutler in the locker room Monday and used the slur.

1 Red Sox righthander Daisuke Matsuzaka. The Red Sox like their chances when Josh Beckett is on the mound, even though the Rockies knocked him around (six runs on 10 hits, including two home runs in five innings) during interleague play at Fenway Park on June 14. And they'll like their chances when Curt Schilling has the ball; his 10-2 postseason record speaks for itself. The crucial Game 3 matchup, expected to be Matsuzaka against Josh Fogg, could be pivotal. Especially since it could come up twice.

No-no always on his mind Unlike many pitchers, New York's Phil Hughes said he absolutely was aware he was working on a no-hitter on Wednesday. (All pitchers are aware of no-hitters, they just won't admit it.) "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't," the Yankees righthander said. "Obviously I knew I hadn't given up a hit. To have it end that way is kind of a bummer, but it's the game and I'm happy to get out of here with a win. " Hughes pitched seven innings of no-hit ball against the Oakland A's in a 3-1 victory Wednesday.

Baseball commissioner Bud Selig says he will step down in 3 years when his contract ends, content that the sport is in good health, Reuters reported. "I plan to retire," Selig, the former Milwaukee Brewers owner, said yesterday. "Other than Kenesaw Mountain Landis, I think I would be the longest-serving commissioner," added Selig, who became "interim commissioner" in 1992 and took the job permanently 6 years later. "My contract runs for the next 3-plus years. I'll be 75 years of age and I want to teach and write a book and do some other things," he said.

The Atlanta Braves agreed to a minor-league contract with righthander Freddy Garcia and invited him to their big-league spring-training camp. A 37-year-old righthander, Garcia went 1-2 with a 1.65 in six games for the Braves, including three starts, after he was acquired from Baltimore last year. He also pitched six solid innings in Game 4 of the division series against the Dodgers. Atlanta wanted a veteran to bolster a talented but young group of starters, especially after Tim Hudson signed with San Francisco.

I KNOW WHAT some fans are thinking - the Phillies are in one of the top five media markets in the country, Citizens Bank Park has been filled to near-capacity since it opened; the team just signed a new 25-year, $2.5 billion television rights deal with Comcast. So if the Yankees can sign Japanese pitching sensation Masahiro Tanaka to a 7-year, $155 million contract after giving the Rakuten Golden Eagles a $20 million posting fee just for the rights to negotiate, why couldn't the Phillies have jumped in on that action?

The Phillies have many moves to make in order to field a competitive team in 2014, but one area that needs no fixing is the top of the rotation with Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee. During the second half of the season, Hamels has reverted to his all-star form, and even Friday's hiccup against the New York Mets shouldn't lower expectations for next season. After 10 straight quality starts (six or more innings, three or fewer earned runs), Hamels wasn't sharp during Friday's 6-4 loss to the Mets at Citizens Bank Park.

NEW YORK - An arms shortage brought Daisuke Matsuzaka to Citi Field, where he enchanted the home fans Wednesday night. "Throw the ball!" one yelled in the third inning of a 6-2 Phillies victory. Boston once paid $51 million merely for the right to negotiate with Matsuzaka. Now he is 32 and a slow-motion disaster on the mound for the Mets. This is what happens when the games lose meaning. Someone must continue the unnatural act of throwing a baseball hundreds of times. For almost two hours, Matsuzaka lumbered until the Phillies cracked him. One flawed team outlasted another.

The team and its franchise player had talked about a framework of a deal that would pay $175 million over the next seven seasons. But as of Sunday afternoon, sources said, the Mariners and Hernandez were not close to finishing an extension, because there are issues that the two sides were sorting through.

PITTSBURGH - John Kruk recently had a thought about streamlining the season. "Can we just end this quick and put the Phillies and the Red Sox in the World Series and get this thing over with so we can have a nice summer vacation?" the ESPN analyst, and former Phillies first baseman, asked facetiously. Doesn't work that way. Still, that won't prevent some from looking at the three-game series that begins tonight at Citizens Bank Park as a possible preview of the Fall Classic. There are plenty of mountains to climb, rivers to cross and ambushes to avoid for both teams between now and then.

The $103 million investment the Boston Red Sox made in Daisuke Matsuzaka took another hit yesterday when manager Terry Francona said the righthander probably will need elbow surgery. The team transferred Matsuzaka from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list amid reports he has decided to have reconstructive surgery that could sideline him for at least 12 months. "It's looking more and more that he's going to need to have the surgery," Francona said before last night's game against the Oakland A's. "He is very driven to come back and help us next year.

Alexei Ramirez tied his career high with four hits, and Philip Humber stymied Boston for seven innings last night to lead the visiting Chicago White Sox to a 10-7 victory over the Red Sox. It was Chicago's sixth straight win at Fenway Park, its longest streak there since the "Go Go" Sox era of 1958-59. Humber (4-3) scattered six hits in the first seven innings before giving up three more in the eighth as Boston cut the deficit to 10-5. In all, Humber was charged with four runs while walking one and striking out five in 7 innings - the first time in seven starts he has allowed more than three runs.
