Forced to choose between friendship and pinstripes, Leo Mazzone went with his heart. After being wooed by the New York Yankees, the esteemed pitching coach agreed to terms on a 3-year deal with the Baltimore Orioles, the team managed by his best friend, Sam Perlozzo. "The reason I'm coming to Baltimore is because Sam Perlozzo is the manager," Mazzone said in a conference call yesterday to introduce him as the new pitching coach. Mazzone, 57, leaves Atlanta, where he had six Cy Young Award winners and nine 20-game winners during a 15 1/2-year run with the Braves.

Jim Beattie won't return in 2006 as executive vice president of the Baltimore Orioles, a move that could signify the beginning of wide-ranging shakeup in the wake of the team's eighth consecutive losing season. Beattie told people yesterday at a charity golf outing in the Baltimore area that he would not be back. His contract expires at the end of this month. There was no word on the status of vice president Mike Flanagan, who worked with Beattie in the Orioles' front office.

As a reward for guiding the Baltimore Orioles through the most tumultuous 2-month stretch in franchise history, Sam Perlozzo had the "interim" label removed from his job title yesterday and signed a 3-year contract as manager. Perlozzo takes control of a team that has suffered through eight straight losing seasons, the longest such run since the Orioles moved from St. Louis in 1954. Perlozzo was promoted from bench coach to interim manager on Aug. 4, taking over for Lee Mazzilli after the Orioles lost 16 of 18 to sink into fourth place in the AL East.

Details of the Pete Rose gambling investigation will be made available to the public - but not for several years. John Dowd, the lawyer who headed the probe that led to Rose's lifetime ban from baseball in 1989, has donated boxes of materials on Rose to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. "It is some neat stuff," Jim Gates, library director of the Hall of Fame, said yesterday. "We're looking at several years before they are properly indexed, put in proper boxes and files and made available to researchers," Gates said.

Phillies hitting coach Hal McRae has been interviewed by the Baltimore Orioles, who are looking for a manager to replace Ray Miller. Early signs are it was little more than a cursory look, however. It is thought McRae was one of four candidates who went through an assembly-line process yesterday. The others: Cincinnati Reds coach Ken Griffey, Boston Red Sox coach Grady Little and Orioles first base coach Marv Foley. Former Cleveland Indians manager Mike Hargrove and ex-Chicago Cubs manager Jim Riggleman, former Orioles catcher Rick Dempsey and current Baltimore third base coach Sam Perlozzo were interviewed previously.

WASHINGTON - When a team built to win the World Series can't even finish its season with a winning record, changes are bound to happen. The Phillies made three after their season ended with a 5-1 defeat to Washington on Wednesday afternoon. First base coach Sam Perlozzo, bench coach Pete Mackanin and hitting coach Greg Gross were all informed that their contracts would not be renewed for the 2013 season. Perlozzo and Mackanin both joined the staff in November of 2008, a few weeks after the Phillies won the World Series.

Curt Schilling is out through at least the all-star break because of a sore right shoulder, and the righthander still doesn't know when he can begin throwing again. The Boston Red Sox yesterday slowed their already deliberate determination on when their 40-year-old ace can resume pitching. Manager Terry Francona confirmed that Schilling, who is eligible to come off the disabled list on July 4, won't be back until at least after the break ends July 11. For now, the Red Sox can afford to wait - they entered yesterday with a 10-game lead in the American League East.

Hammerin' Hamilton Josh Hamilton is one of the feel-good stories of the 2008 season. The Texas Rangers outfielder has rebounded from a lengthy battle with drug addiction to become one of the top hitters in the major leagues. Hamilton entered yesterday leading the majors with 49 RBIs. He went 5 for 5 on Friday night with two home runs, five RBIs and 13 total bases in a win over Houston. "He's incredible," Rangers outfielder David Murphy told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Phillies infield coach Sam Perlozzo does not believe that Chase Utley is injured, and worked with the second baseman on throwing mechanics during Tuesday's optional workout. Utley famously tossed two balls into the dugout in the first two games of the National League Championship Series. The second error was a pivotal moment in Game 2. Rumors and speculation swirled in subsequent days that Utley might be injured, but Perlozzo did not believe so. "Do I think he's hurt? No," Perlozzo said yesterday.

WASHINGTON - The crowd in the clubhouse could not disperse fast enough Wednesday when Sam Perlozzo shook Jimmy Rollins' hand. All around them, Phillies players said their goodbyes with hugs or an exchange of phone numbers. Rollins smiled when Perlozzo approached him. Then the first-base coach told him: Minutes earlier, he had lost his job. Rollins' face turned grim. "I'll see you," Perlozzo said. A winter of change commenced at 4:07 p.m. when Michael Martinez flied out to left to seal a 5-1 defeat to Washington at Nationals Park, and these Phillies ended where they began 181 days earlier.

HOUSTON - Rod Nichols flipped a ball to Ryne Sandberg, who smashed it down the third-base line. Chase Utley shifted to his right, backhanded it, and pantomimed a throw to first. "Woo!" Sandberg shouted, loud enough to reverberate through empty Minute Maid Park. The education of Utley at third proceeded in earnest Friday. Instead of hitting with a fungo, Sandberg used a real bat to closer simulate the speed of the ball. Utley ranged from side to side and fielded bunches of challenging balls for nearly 15 minutes.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Two weeks ago, Sam Perlozzo was raving about his next big idea. He'd call it "Sam's Stool" and market it to baseball teams at every level. The blue step stool he used to keep Chase Utley active in the field last spring was so helpful that the first thing Perlozzo, the Phillies' first-base coach, did upon arriving in Florida was to make sure no one had stolen it. Now, "Sam's Stool" will require modifications. Ideally, it could fold. Maybe it'll have wheels, or perhaps a bucket seat to make its user more comfortable.

LAKELAND, Fla. - Sam Perlozzo is waiting for Chase Utley. But the Phillies are deferring to their second baseman, saying he knows his body best. When he is ready to test his chronically injured right knee with regular activity, he will inform everyone. But right now, there are no secret drills on back fields with Utley and Perlozzo, the team's first-base coach and infield coordinator. Utley has mostly stayed off his feet, but all parties involved say this is by design. "He's not a guy you go bug," Perlozzo said.

TAMPA, Fla. - When Jimmy Rollins signed a four-year deal to secure his hold on shortstop for the Phillies, Freddy Galvis was in Venezuela playing winter ball. "It was something you could see coming," Galvis said. Galvis, 22, was touted by some in the organization as a possible successor to Rollins because of his defensive acumen. He won the 2011 Paul Owens Award as the top position player in the Phillies' system. He showed impressive development offensively. Now, his path to the majors is firmly blocked.

Antonio Bastardo's fleeting anger was displayed Sunday in the form of a wardrobe change. His red socks, always pulled high above his ankles, were hidden. Something had to change after a miserable Saturday, when the ball failed to go where Bastardo wanted it - a foreign concept to the 25-year-old lefty during this banner season. But there he was, asked to close Sunday's 5-3 victory less than 24 hours after imploding in the eighth inning Saturday. Seventeen pitches yielded familiar success and his eighth save of 2011.
