Cora gets new deal from Red Sox through 2021 season

By Kyle Hightower, Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — Alex Cora brought a new voice and culture to the Boston Red Sox that helped propel them to their latest World Series title. The Red Sox rewarded him for bringing home a championship in his first year with the team by giving him a new contract with an additional guaranteed year through the 2021 season. The deal containing the extension was announced Wednesday by Boston also includes a club option for 2022. In his rookie season as a major league manager, Cora guided the Red Sox to a franchise-record 108 victories and the team’s fourth championship in 15 seasons. He finished second in the AL Manager of the Year voting announced Tuesday. “We have consistently been impressed by Alex at every turn,” Red Sox chairman Tom Werner said in a statement. “His knowledge of the game, ability to connect with our players, and his incredible instincts and decisiveness led us to an historic championship season. We know we are in good hands and could not be more pleased to know he will be with us for the foreseeable future.” Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski was in search of new direction for the club when he fired former manager John Farrell after back-to-back Al Division Series losses in 2016 and 2017. After the historic regular season, Cora then steered Boston past the 100-win Yankees and Astros in the AL playoffs before downing the Dodgers in the World Series. “For me, 2018 was not only historic, but it was special as well, both on and off the field,” Cora said in a statement. “We have a great appreciation for our accomplishments this past year, but now our focus moves forward to the season ahead and defending our World Series title.” During Boston’s run Cora got the best out his young talent, led by AL MVP favorite Mookie Betts. They shined in player-centric approach in which Cora encouraged an aggressive hitting mentality, lots of hit-and-runs and active running of the bases. Cora also the most out of his pitching staff, which included clutch performances in the postseason by Chris Sale and David Price. Neither pitcher had logged a playoff victory as a starter prior to this season. Price had a tough time acclimating to Boston’s rugged sports environment during his first two seasons of the seven-year, $217 million deal he signed in 2015. He’s found a groove late in the season, pitching the clinching Game 5 of the ALCS to help the Red Sox advance. “Just his demeanor. It doesn’t change,” Price said last month. “I know it’s easy to not change when your team wins 108 games in the regular season. But he hasn’t changed one bit.” A member of the Red Sox’s 2007 World Series title team as a player, Cora was the bench coach on Houston’s 2017 championship team. He learned from manager A.J. Hinch that being close to players would be beneficial. “Talking to players is not bad, having a relationship with players is not bad,” Cora said in describing his managerial philosophy. “Doing that, you’re going to get the best out of them. People may think that crossing that line is not helpful, but I see it the other way around, and I lived it.” Cora became the first manager from Puerto to guide a team to a championship. It came more than a year after Hurricane Maria devastated island, prompting Cora during initial contract negotiations last October to ask the Red Sox to help his people with relief efforts. Ownership responded by sending a chartered plane full of supplies. Days after winning the World Series, they again obliged Cora’s request to take the trophy to his hometown of Caguas, Puerto Rico......»»

UAAP: JLC learned to shoot like that from an NU legend

John Lloyd Clemente was white hot for National University all throughout their matchup against Far Eastern University on Sunday. “Actually, start of the game pa lang, nararadaman ko nang mainit ako e,” he told reporters after he dropped 38 points, the highest output from a player this season, in a losing effort. “Then start ng second half, ayun, hindi na ako nagmimintis. Nagulat na nga lang ako sa mga tira ko, lahat pumapasok e.” Along with a morale-boosting win for the already-eliminated Bulldogs, Clemente actually had a more personal goal in mind. “Last game kasi, first half pa lang, nakalimang three points na ako so sabi ko kay coach Jeff, ibe-break ko record mo. Ganun din ngayon,” he shared. The first-year player was referring to Jeff Napa, his former coach in Nazareth School of NU and who now serves as consultant for the school’s Seniors squad. Before being a coach, Napa once set a milestone, scoring 43 points built on a league record-tying 10 triples back in 2002. Fast forward 16 years and his milestone was put under siege in back-to-back games by Clemente. Last Wednesday, the scoring swingman had 19 points, 15 coming from five triples in the first half, and five days later, he dropped 38 points while scattering five triples. Safe to say, Clemente wasn’t able to match Napa’s firepower in a single game. “Kaya lang, ‘di ko na-break e. Yun talaga yung target ko sana e kaso ‘di ko magawa,” he said through chuckles. Interestingly, the man whose record Clemente is trying to break is the same man who has been his long-time mentor. “Si coach Jeff, parang tatay ko na rin yan. Siya talaga yung mentor ko,” he said, talking about their relationship which led to one championship in their time together with the Bullpups. And as it turns out, it’s actually Napa who has been overseeing Clemente’s transformation from a master of the midrange to a deep-range marksman. “Siya nagturo sa akin paano mag-shoot. Pagdating ko sa NU, ang pangit talaga ng shooting form ko tapos siya, nakita ko, ang ganda ng pitik niya,” the latter said. He then continued, “Tinanong ko teammates ko kung player ba siya dati tapos sabi nga nila na mag record nga raw siya. Mula pa noon, talagang tinuturuan na niya ako paano mag-shoot.” For being his mentor from then until now, Clemente is nothing but thankful for Napa. As he put it, “Si coach Jeff naman, alam kong gusto rin niya akong maging successful in the future.” That doesn’t mean, however, that Napa’s record is already safe. “May four years pa ako. Kaya pa yan,” Clemente said, restressing that he intends to go for the same milestone his mentor has. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
