Ex-Brave Linebrink recalls last season’s collapse

Sports

February 21st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Arriving for the first time at the St. Louis Cardinals’ spring training clubhouse, Scott Linebrink plopped down an Atlanta Braves equipment bag in front of his locker stall. It was a vivid reminder of the front row seat the relief pitcher had during the collapse that helped the Cardinals make their improbable World Series title drive last fall. The Braves were 9-18 in September, and the 35-year-old right-hander took the loss in a 13-inning setback to the Phillies on the final day that gave St. Louis the NL wild card. Linebrink’s description of the downward spiral: A three-week car wreck that slid past in slow motion. The Cardinals signed Linebrink to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

AP source: Chiefs, Routt reach 3-yr, $19.6M deal

Sports

February 21st, 2012 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that the Kansas City Chiefs and cornerback Stanford Routt have agreed to terms on a $19.6 million, three-year deal. The person, speaking on condition of anonymity Monday because the team had not announced the deal, said the agreement includes a $4 million signing bonus and $6 million the first season. Routt is still owed $5 million next month from the Raiders, who released him after the first year of a $54.4 million, five-year deal. Routt chose the Chiefs over competing offers from Buffalo, Cincinnati, Houston, New Orleans, Minnesota and Tennessee. Routt will likely take over for Brandon Carr, who will become a free agent. Signing Routt means the Chiefs are more likely to use the franchise tag on wide receiver Dwayne Bowe instead of Carr.

DENTON, Texas (AP) — North Texas football coach Dan McCarney is out of the hospital following a stroke last week. McCarney felt his left side go numb Feb. 12 and was taken to an area hospital. Doctors later confirmed he had a stroke. A university spokesman says McCarney was released last Thursday and has returned to the office for about an hour each day. McCarney has said he expects to lead the Mean Green through spring drills, which begin on March 28. The 58-year-old McCarney was hired to coach the Mean Green in November 2010. He went 5-7 in his first season last year. Previously, he coached at Iowa State from 1995 to 2006 and has worked as an assistant at Florida, South Florida, Wisconsin and Iowa.

Sports

February 20th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) – Albert Pujols’ departure from the St. Louis Cardinals after 11 seasons drove home the point to his closest friend on the team. At the end of the day, it’s a hard, cold business. Four-time Gold Glove catcher Yadier Molina enters spring training this year a lifetime Cardinal seeking a long-term extension, just like Pujols a year ago. Molina is heading into the final year of his contract and he would like to stay in St. Louis. But he emphasizes it’s a two-way street.  
Molina said he thinks of Pujols as a big brother and said Pujols’ exit definitely hurt. But he also said he’s happy in St. Louis and downplayed absences at the team’s White House photo op and Winter Warmup, He said he simply had other commitments.
