Iowa’s Parker set to call it quits after bowl game

Sports

December 16th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Norm Parker has been the defensive coordinator at Iowa so long that it’s tough to remember who preceded him. But at age 70, Parker maintained Friday that it’s time to move on. Parker – better known as “Norm” to the Hawkeyes- will call it quits after the Insight Bowl against Oklahoma on Dec. 30th.

Parker’s unassuming persona and rock-solid defenses, which ranked in the top 10 in scoring defense in 2008 to 2010, have been a hallmark of the Hawkeyes program. He’ll be remembered fondly by his players and coach Kirk Ferentz.  But Parker says he feels it is time for him to step aside and let someone else have a crack at his job.

ISU FB Coach Paul Rhoads Agrees to 10-Year/$20M Contract

Sports

December 16th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State football Coach Paul Rhoads has repeatedly said that he is proud to be a Cyclone and Friday he added an exclamation point to that sentence by agreeing to a 10-year contract.

“To say that I’m appreciative and humbled is a huge understatement,” Rhoads said. “So many people have contributed to what has been achieved in our program the first three years. I want to thank President Geoffroy and Jamie Pollard, who personally met with me to begin contract talks after the Kansas game in early November. The support of everyone in Cyclone Nation has been fantastic. It’s great to be a Cyclone.”

Rhoads is taking his 2011 team to the Pinstripe Bowl in New York’s Yankee Stadium later this month, the school’s second bowl appearance in three years. During his tenure, Rhoads has quickly ignited a fan base, which broke a nearly three-decade old attendance mark this fall. His teams have authored several of the biggest wins in school history, including the nationally televised upset of second-ranked Oklahoma State in overtime.

“Today is a great day for Iowa State University,” Pollard said. “Paul Rhoads and Iowa State are a perfect match for one another and we could not be happier that he is going to be our football coach for the long term.”

Iowa State has confirmed that the total value of Coach Paul Rhoads’ 10-year contract is $20 million. Full terms of the contract will be released at a later date.

St. Louis Cardinals, GM John Mozeliak Honored

Sports

December 16th, 2011 by Jim Field

ST. LOUIS, Mo., December 16, 2011 – Following their 2011 World
Championship season, the St. Louis Cardinals have continued to receive
several special honors, earning selection by Baseball America as its
2011 “Organization of the Year”.  In addition, Cardinals Senior Vice
President & General Manager John Mozeliak was voted the recipient of the
MLB.com GIBBY (Greatness in Baseball Yearly) award as “MLB Executive of
the Year.”

While the Cardinals 11th World Championship title and the team’s storied
comeback to reach the postseason were crowning achievements, Baseball
America also saluted the Cardinals organization for its overall success,
including championship seasons for both Quad Cities (Midwest League-A)
and Johnson City (Appalachian League-Rookie).

The Cardinals minor league system ranked 4th overall in the majors with
a .530 winning pct. (401-355) and Springfield (AA) first baseman Matt
Adams was named Texas League Player of the Year.  Adams and pitcher
Shelby Miller were named the Cardinals Minor League Player and Pitcher
of the Year respectively for 2011.

The Cardinals’ “Organization of the Year” selection by Baseball America
was their first ever.  The nationally recognized baseball trade
publication has been honoring baseball’s top organizations since 1982.

Mozeliak’s selection was part of the 10th annual GIBBYs and was based on
millions of votes in a comprehensive process that included fans who
voted at MLB.com; media members; front-office personnel; and MLB alumni.

Cardinals Sign Left Reliever J.C. Romero to One Year Deal

Sports

December 15th, 2011 by Jim Field

ST. LOUIS, Mo., December 15, 2011 – The St. Louis Cardinals announced
today that they have signed left-handed relief pitcher J.C. Romero to a
one-year contract for the upcoming 2012 season.  The 35-year-old
free-agent has 11-plus years of service in the majors with five Major
League clubs.

“Romero is a proven lefty specialist, who has been a valuable bullpen
piece for winning teams throughout his career” said Cardinals’ Senior
Vice President John Mozeliak.  “We felt that it was important to
maintain versatility and depth within our bullpen and we feel that J.C
will be a solid addition.”

During his big-league career, Romero has compiled a 34-28 won-loss mark
with seven saves in 664 games and a 4.07 ERA.  He leads Major League
lefthanders in games pitched from 2002-2011 with 633, while his 517.0
innings pitched during that time span ranks 2nd among lefty relievers.
His .208 opp. BA (177-for-852) against left-handed batters is the lowest
among all Major League lefties (min. 800 AB’s) since 2002, as are his 11
home runs allowed.

Two of Romero’s top seasons came in 2007 and 2008.  With Boston and
Philadelphia in 2007 he pitched a combined 74 games, allowing just 12 ER
over 56.1 IP (1.92 ERA).  In 2008 he pitched in a career high 81 games
for the World Champion Phillies and surrendered just 18 runs over 59.0
IP for a 2.75 ERA.

Romero has made six career postseason appearances, three with the
Minnesota Twins and three with Philadelphia, and he pitched for Puerto
Rico in both the 2006 and 2009 World Baseball Classics.

Romero ended the 2011 season with Colorado after beginning the year with
Philadelphia.  He also saw action in the Washington Nationals and New
York Yankees minor league systems last season.
