When he left the Boston Red Sox, Terry Francona said the players needed to hear from a new voice. ESPN thinks Francona's voice will be an excellent fit for its baseball coverage. The network hired Francona to replace analyst Bobby Valentine , who is Boston's new manager. Francona described the switch as a win-win situation for the team and the network. He also said he'll probably sleep better than Valentine.   Cubs and Pujols Cubs president Theo Epstein and Dan Lozano , Albert Pujols ' agent, met Monday at the winter meetings in Dallas.

The Phillies had hoped to sign shortstop Jimmy Rollins for the long term this off-season, but eventually agreed to a one-year, $3.85 million contract. But the team has continued serious talks with Rollins' agent, Dan Lozano, for the last two months, and general manager Ed Wade said he hoped to have a deal finalized in the near future. "I think we're making progress," Wade said. "Hopefully, we're getting close to the finish line. " That would be big for the Phillies, who consider Rollins the best all-round shortstop in the National League.

A day after being booed before and during the Los Angeles Dodgers' home opener, all-star catcher Mike Piazza broke off contract negotiations with the team. Piazza's agent turned down an $80 million contract offer from the Dodgers earlier in the week that would have been the richest in baseball history. "I have instructed my agent, Dan Lozano, to shut down contract negotiations with the Dodgers," Piazza said. "I let the talks become a distraction, and for that I apologize to my teammates and our fans.

Could a mystery team be emerging as a possibility to land free-agent shortstop Jimmy Rollins? Rollins' agent, Dan Lozano, has told the Phillies that he is talking to another team, according to ESPN.com. Other teams think it is the Detroit Tigers. Lozano and the Phillies continue to talk about Rollins returning, but the sticking point seems to remain the length of the contract. Rollins is seeking a 5-year deal; the Phillies are thought to have offered 3 years. It is unclear how aggressively the Tigers are pursuing Rollins.

One week after the approval of the sale from Peter O'Malley to Fox, the Los Angeles Dodgers still have not spoken to the agent for catcher Mike Piazza. Piazza, of Norristown, who is seeking the richest contract in baseball history, a seven-year deal worth $105 million, has said he does not want to negotiate during the season, which begins Tuesday in St. Louis. All winter, the Dodgers said they would not begin negotiations until after the sale was approved. Piazza, who will earn $8 million this year, is eligible for free agency after the season.

Mike Piazza, who has been out of baseball this season, has decided to start "a new chapter" in his life. Piazza, a graduate of Phoenixville High School who was drafted in the 62d round by the Los Angeles Dodgers, is retiring from baseball after a 19-season career in which he became one of the top-hitting catchers in history. The 39-year-old Piazza, who was born in Norristown, became a free agent at the end of last season after batting .275 with eight home runs and 44 RBIs for the Oakland Athletics, but he did not sign with any team this season.

The phone buzzed Friday morning after Pilates class; the voice on the other end was Dodgers executive Andrew Friedman welcoming Jimmy Rollins to his next baseball life. Rollins had told the Phillies he would play for either them or Los Angeles, and here was the call he expected nine days earlier, a call so unimaginable before. "It just means, really, my time there is up," Rollins said hours later. He spoke Friday, the day he was officially dealt to Los Angeles for two minor-league pitchers, without a hint of nostalgia.

Those reports about Mike Piazza signing with the Phillies and playing for the team he followed as a kid? Forget about it. The 12-time All-Star, who grew up in Phoenixville, agreed to a $2 million, 1-year contract with the San Diego Padres yesterday, giving the defending NL West champions a marquee player they think still can contribute. Piazza, 37, had been interested in signing a free-agent deal with an AL team to become a designated hitter. Instead, he'll stay in the NL and return to the West Coast for the first time since the Dodgers traded him to Florida in 1998.

Shortstop Jimmy Rollins, as represented by agent Dan Lozano, and the Phillies, as represented by general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., have done the traditional dance of a free agent and his team when both know closing time is approaching and no better partners are out there. Not too close, not too distant, but there's no sense peering surreptitiously over the other's shoulder to scan the dance floor for an upgrade, either. They'll be going home together and that's that. Signing a new contract with the Phils is the way it should go for Rollins, and if he wants a reasonable amount of drama before doing so, befitting his veteran status and accomplishments, he's probably entitled to that.

DALLAS - The Phillies might not have to worry about Albert Pujols playing in the NL East, but they do have to wonder whether his departure from the Cardinals will complicate their negotiations with free-agent Jimmy Rollins. Pujols spurned the Cards to sign a reported 10-year, $254 million deal with the Angels, leaving St. Louis with a huge offensive void to fill, and, presumably, plenty of money at their disposal to fill it. Whether Rollins factors into their plans remains to be seen.

DALLAS - The best news for the Phillies at these winter meetings really had little to do with them. When general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. awoke Thursday morning, the biggest news of this baseball offseason was breaking: Albert Pujols had agreed to a 10-year deal worth between $250 and $260 million with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The impact was not lost on Amaro. "If that's the case, I'm glad he's out of our league," the Phillies general manager said. Only two general managers in the National League would disagree with that sentiment.

DALLAS - The Los Angeles Angels made perhaps the biggest one-day free-agent splash in baseball history and transformed themselves into legitimate World Series contenders, spending about $331 million Thursday to acquire the game's most feared slugger and one of its top pitchers. Within a span of two frenzied, early-morning hours at the winter meetings, the Angels reached agreements in principle with first baseman Albert Pujols on a 10-year, $254 million deal and lefthander C.J. Wilson on a five-year, $77.5 million deal.

DALLAS - The Phillies contingent left these frenetic winter meetings with Laynce Nix and a cash prize of $86,000 for losing four players in the Rule 5 draft. As general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. described his methodical pursuit of Jimmy Rollins outside a ballroom Thursday at the Hilton Anatole, news broke that Albert Pujols had agreed to a megadeal with the Los Angeles Angels. Amaro's task was not nearly as groundbreaking. But with Pujols landed, it could accelerate the Phillies' negotiations with their longtime shortstop, who just so happens to be represented by the same agent as Pujols.
