Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was released from his contract Monday night to pursue other opportunities. Guillen met with owner Jerry Reinsdorf for about 30 minutes earlier in the day. Guillen said he told Reinsdorf he would like to return, but only for a contract extension for more money. He had one year remaining on his current deal. “We certainly cannot thank Ozzie enough for all he has done during his eight seasons as manager of the Chicago White Sox, highlighted by an unforgettable 2005 World Series championship,” Reinsdorf said in a release issued by the team following its 4-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. The White Sox said in the release they retain the right to compensation should Guillen accept a managerial position with another major league team for the 2012 season. – AP
SEATTLE – There were a couple of minutes left in the first half when Courtney Vandersloot gathered in a long outlet pass and took off for the opposite end of the court at KeyArena. But as she neared the 3-point line Seattle Storm star Sue Bird swooped in and stole the ball, setting up a Swin Cash basket on the other end. Chicago quickly called a timeout and as the Sky players went to the bench, coach Pokey Chatman put her arm around Vandersloot and quietly spoke in her ear. It was the last game of the former Gonzaga star’s rookie season in the WNBA and the lessons continued to the end. And it actually looked familiar. Vandersloot had many such moments with Kelly Graves, who was sitting in the front row at center court with the governor and Storm owner, as she made NCAA history while taking Gonzaga to unprecedented success.
Take a deep breath and get ready for a dizzying recap. It was only 12 months ago that Courtney Vandersloot was enjoying the idyllic life of a college senior, savoring the sun on a cross-campus walk as her final year at Gonzaga got under way.
