Paul Hagen: Red Sox in seven: There are plenty of reasons to believe the Rockies can win, but Boston gets the slightest of nods here. The guess is that it will take Colorado a while to shake off its long layoff, and the overall inexperience of its roster could also be a factor. While anything can happen in a short series, there is no doubt that the American League has the better teams. And as hot as the Rockies were at the end of the season, the Red Sox are also on a roll, after rallying to beat the Indians.

While the Boston Red Sox celebrated at Coors Field after their second World Series sweep in 4 years, general manager Theo Epstein was serenaded with two pieces of advice. "Re-sign Lowell!" the sizable contingent of Boston fans yelled from behind the visitor's dugout. Then they broke into a chant of, "Don't sign A-Rod!" Among the potential free agents are third baseman Mike Lowell, the World Series MVP, and Curt Schilling, a star of the team's 2004 title. Other players eligible for free agency include pitcher Tim Wakefield, and spare outfielders Eric Hinske and Bobby Kielty.

A thumb injury is holding up a trade that would send third baseman Mike Lowell from the Boston Red Sox to Texas Rangers, the Boston Globe reported. The teams had reached preliminary agreement last week that would send minor league catcher Max Ramirez to Boston, with the Red Sox picking up $9 million of Lowell's $12 million salary for next season. The Globe reported the Rangers had signed off on the condition of Lowell's surgically repaired right hip but were continuing to examine his right thumb.

The proposed trade that would send third baseman Mike Lowell from Boston to Texas is being held up by the Rangers' concern over the slugger's right thumb, the Boston Globe reported yesterday. The teams reached agreement Wednesday to send minor-league catcher Max Ramirez to Boston, with the Sox picking up $9 million of Lowell's $12 million salary for next season. The Globe reported that Texas was not concerned about Lowell's surgically repaired right hip but was continuing to examine his right thumb, which he injured near the end of the season.

Montreal Expos outfielder Rob Ducey ruptured his right Achilles tendon in the first inning yesterday and will miss the rest of the season. Ducey had to be helped off the field in the first inning after falling awkwardly against the outfield wall in a failed attempt to rob Atlanta's Brian Jordan of a three-run homer. Ducey, 36, a former Phillie, will likely be sidelined for seven months. Texas catcher Ivan Rodriguez hit his 20th homer of the season as the Rangers lost to Tampa Bay, 7-4. The shot to deep left-center, estimated at 472 feet, was the longest ever by an opponent at Tropicana Field.

How much longer does Big Papi have in Boston? You have to wonder how long the Red Sox can go with David Ortiz. The former slugger, hitting .146 with 17 strikeouts in his last 11 games, did not play Wednesday night when Boston met Texas in Fenway Park. Before the game, manager Terry Francona told Boston radio station WEEI that he wasn't comfortable saying more about Ortiz's situation and any possible future scenarios. Francona said that despite Ortiz's obvious disappointment at being pulled for pinch-hitter Mike Lowell on Tuesday, he believed that Ortiz handled the situation like a professional.

Pitcher Kyle Lohse and the St. Louis Cardinals agreed yesterday to a $41 million, 4-year contract. Lohse was 15-6 with a 3.78 ERA this season. He agreed to a $4.25 million, 1-year contract on March 14, after failing to agree on a deal with the Phillies, who acquired him at the trade deadline in 2007. His new deal contract calls for a $1.25 million signing bonus and salaries of $7,125,000 next year, $8,875,000 in 2009 and $11,875,000 in each of the final two seasons. He also gets a full no-trade clause.

After two innings, Jamie Moyer had thrown 57 pitches, walked four batters and fired over to first base nine times. He trailed the Boston Red Sox by only 2-0 at the time. And that was the same score when Moyer left the game, after having thrown five laborious innings well enough to keep the Phillies alive. But the lefthander was not satisfied at all. "That was the worst command I've had in a long time," Moyer said after a 3-0 loss last night. "I started to come back a little bit in the fourth and fifth innings.

The Boston Red Sox brushed aside the 100-win Angels in four games, dismissing their best-in-baseball regular season as last month's news. When it turns to October, no one dominates like Boston. Moments after the Angels botched a suicide squeeze, Jason Bay slid headfirst into home plate to score on rookie Jed Lowrie's two-out single in the ninth inning. The defending World Series champions beat Los Angeles last night, 3-2, in Game 4 of their first-round playoff series and advanced to play for the AL pennant for the fourth time in six seasons.

Beantown never gives up Don't count out the Red Sox yet. Boston was already decimated by injuries before first baseman Kevin Youkilis went out for the season Tuesday. But like the Terminator steadily reassembling itself from mercurial silver bubbles of liquid metal, the Red Sox refuse to accept defeat. Now with Tampa Bay slipping - two games behind the Yankees going into Sunday night after losing five straight - the time could be ripe for Boston to try to make its move in the AL East.

Fans were given the right to vote for the players they'd most like to see in the All-Star Home Run Derby this year. Only trouble was, none of top three finishers in each league chose to participate. Yankees manager Joe Girardi called the contest "one of the most exciting things in sports. " He also admitted he had advised his own second baseman, Robinson Cano, to refrain from competing because of a sore lower back. There's more dead time than live action, allowing ESPN to sell 3 hours worth of ads. And yet, the Home Run Derby remains a wildly popular television offering.

BOSTON - By the middle of it, the fans at Fenway Park turned their attention to more pressing matters, joining together in loud chants of "Beat L-A!" Presumably, they were cheering on the hometown Celtics, who are deadlocked with the Lakers in the NBA Finals, although could have been harkening back to May 1982, when Phillies broadcaster Larry Andersen made the one and only start of his major league career here against the Red Sox. Either way, they weren't paying much attention to the game on the field, mostly because, after the second inning, it wasn't much of a game.

At some point, usually around the seventh inning, the official paid attendance for that game is announced in the press box. For the Phillies lately, that's followed by a brief addendum. Last night, for example, it would have been something like: "That's the 71st consecutive sellout at Citizens Bank Park. " And isn't that what all pro sports franchises aspire to? It's a good thing, right? Well, mostly. But, believe it or not, there can be some drawbacks to being so wildly popular that every game plays to a full house.

Outside on Tuesday afternoon, a cold, pelting rain provided depressing accompaniment to a series of personnel plagues that even by Red Sox standards seemed biblical in scope. "Right now," conceded manager Terry Francona, the team's bald, bespectacled Job, "we're being tested a lot. " Sixteen hours earlier, two ninth-inning home runs off closer Jonathan Papelbon had turned a gutsy comeback into Boston's eighth straight loss at new Yankee Stadium, fast becoming this team's personal ring of hell.

NEW YORK - Outside the Red Sox clubhouse, the weather was dark and foreboding. Which, come to think of it, pretty much reflected the atmosphere inside the room as well. Veteran third baseman Mike Lowell sat at his locker and talked calmly but openly about his lack of playing time. "It's painfully evident I don't really have a role on the team . . . I think sometimes you feel like the team would be better off if you're not on it . . . There are a lot of things we've got to fix . . . Have I given [asking to be released]

Jeremy Hermida hit a two-run double in the ninth inning to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 7-6 win over the host New York Yankees in a game that lasted 4 hours, 9 minutes because of a rain delay. Hermida's double came one inning after the Red Sox scored four runs to tie the game at 5-5. The Yankees are protesting the game because they said there was no indication of an injury to Red Sox starter Josh Beckett when he left in the fifth inning. Relief pitcher Manny Delcarmen was given all the time he needed to warm up after Beckett was removed.
