The coolest, bluest moose in town is, on this particular hot afternoon, just about on the verge of melting. Or is that molting? "Whew, it's hot," says John Farrell, from Downingtown, the man who is sweating it up in the moose suit. "I'm soaked. And it's not even summer yet. " But Farrell smiles as he complains about the heat. Farrell is always smiling. And he tries to bring as much merriment as he can to his new job, that of Rocky Bluewinkle, the mascot of the Wilmington Blue Rocks, a minor-league baseball team in the single-A Carolina League.

Boston pitching coach John Farrell, who served as Indians farm director before taking the Red Sox job after the 2006 season, is among names mentioned as a possible successor.

Third baseman Matt Whitney, a first-round pick by the Cleveland Indians last June, broke a leg while retrieving a basketball and could miss the 2003 season. Whitney and two minor leaguers were awaiting another player to go to dinner Sunday when they began shooting a basketball, according to John Farrell, the Indians' director of player development. The ball got away, Whitney jogged to retrieve it and turned his ankle when he stepped on a box that covered a sprinkler head. Whitney had surgery yesterday at Celebration Hospital in Orlando, Fla., to repair fractures to his left tibia and fibula.

Chester High School has, in effect, lost its wrestling program because it did not replace its coach for the 1987-88 season, according to the former coach. John Farrell, who quit as wrestling coach in May, said Tuesday that the school's athletic department simply did not take him seriously when he announced his resignation. "Because of the work I do and the hours I keep, I was unable to continue coaching," said Farrell, who is in the food-services industry. "But when I spoke to then-athletic director Joe Carroll and said I was leaving, he and everyone else just assumed that I would be back.

THE BOSTON Red Sox are hoping that two big trades will help them get back to the playoffs after missing out 3 years in a row. The first was a genuine blockbuster that sent Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Nick Punto and Josh Beckett to the Los Angeles Dodgers and freed up more than $250 million in future salaries. The second was the deal that 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.

BOSTON - After a disastrous 69-93 season, the Boston Red Sox are back among the elite in the American League, winning and earning admiration for their scrappy play. The Sox, who lead the American League with 82 wins, are comparable to a team that captivated the Philadelphia region for a five-year period. "This team reminds me of our teams in Philly, grinding it out, never giving up," said Sox rightfielder Shane Victorino, who appeared in all 46 of the Phillies' games during their five straight postseason appearances from 2007 to 2011.

JIMMY ROLLINS will most likely not return to the lineup on the current homestand, but he should return sooner rather than later, according to manager Ryne Sandberg. Sandberg said yesterday afternoon that tests on Rollins' left hamstring revealed a mild strain. The manager said his veteran shortstop was simply "day-to-day. " "A little bit better than it looked [Monday] night," said Sandberg, who had to replace Rollins before the fifth inning, a half inning after the 35-year-old infielder legged out his fourth triple of the season.

Camden Catholic's Jonathan George has grown up with baseball. He has played catch with Cal Ripken Jr., sat in minor-league dugouts, and shagged fly balls with professional players. The game has always been a big part of the 6-foot-4, 210-pound senior's life. His father, Rowland, is a former minor-league player and major-league scout. His uncle, Will George, used to room with Ripken in the minor leagues when both were in the Baltimore Orioles' system. Will George is now a professional scout for the Colorado Rockies.
