Extractions: CHICAGO - The Chicago White Sox have agreed to terms on minor-league contracts with pitchers Gil Heredia, Esteban Loaiza and Brian Cooper, infielder/outfielder Brian Daubach, catchers Jamie Burke and Steven Morales and outfielder Clifford Brumbaugh. All have been invited to the club's spring training camp in Tucson, Ariz., as non-roster players. The non-roster invitees consist of seven pitchers, five outfielders, three catchers and two infielders. One name on that list should be familiar to Charlotte fans, Brian Daubach. Daubach, 30, batted .266 (118-444) with 20 home runs and 78 RBI in 137 games for the Boston Red Sox in 2002. The left-handed hitter is just the fifth player in Red Sox history to hit 20-plus home runs in each of his first four major-league seasons. He has played in 521 career games with Florida (1998) and Boston (1999-2002), batting .266 (463-1,742) with 84 home runs and 301 RBI. Daubach is a native of Belleville, Ill.and played with the Charlotte Knights in 1997 and 1998. White Sox pitchers and catchers report on Sunday, February 16, with
Extractions: We knew it would happen. We just didnt know it would be this bad. I'm not surprised that the Red Sox wont win the World Series this year. After all, its been that way for 83 years. Theyve lost before, and theyve lost badly. But what we have now is a complete and utter meltdown. From the top down, the entire organization is in complete shambles at the end of what could have, and should have been a season that lasted well into the playoffs. How did it all go bad? There are mistakes, there are bad relationships, bad closers, bad personalities and bad luck. And the Red Sox have all of them. Funny, how it all started with good things Hideo Nomo pitched a no-hitter at Camden Yards in his first appearance in a Red Sox uniform and the teams first win. His no-no seemed to answer a huge question about the depth of the Sox rotation after Pedro Martinez. Then, in Manny Ramirezs first appearance at Fenway Park, he blasted the first pitch he saw well over the Monster, prompting the beginning of his worship by Boston fans as an RBI god. There were plenty of things to be happy about. Even with Nomar, Pedro, Everett and Jason Varitek all doing their respective stints on the DL, focusing on guys like Brian Daubach, Trot Nixon and Lou Merloni allowed us to pretend for a little while that our team wasnt centered around and led by selfish millionaires.

Extractions: Go Sox. So it's repetetive. I'll get a good quote to head off the page soon. Last updated: 24 May, 2000. I'm not in the big leagues just because I'm cute. - Pedro Martinez Man, I hate them Yankees, I hate them with a passion. - Paxton Crawford But I've seen the error of my ways. My blood is red. - Rick Riccobono, on facing lefties I'm just Pedro, man. I'm just a player here. I don't want to be Michael Jordan. I want to be a normal human being. When I'm on the field, I'm just Pedro Martinez, in uniform and ready to work. An employee here. That's all I want. I don't want more fame, more cameras. I wish I could sneak by. Just go away. - Pedro Martinez No, it's because he has big toes. The name explains it. Have you ever seen his toes? - Pedro Martinez
