Francona misses out on Cardinals job

According to multiple reports, Mike Matheny will be named the new manager for the St. Louis Cardinals in a press conference Monday. It was a position former Red Sox manager Terry Francona had been a finalist for, having interviewed with the Cardinals Tuesday.

The 41-year-old Matheny, who had been a minor league instructor for the Cardinals, has no managerial experience. He takes over for Tony LaRussa, who retired after St. Louis' world championship 2011 season. Matheny caught from 2000-04 for the Cardinals, winning three Gold Gloves. He becomes the second major league manager hired this offseason without any previous managing experience, joining the White Sox' Robin Ventura.

The Cardinals were the only team Francona interviewed with since parting ways with the Red Sox following the '11 season. Other men to interview for Cardinals' job were Ryne Sandberg, Chris Maloney, Joe McEwing, and Jose Oquendo.

Chung among 7 Patriots inactives

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- After testing out his sore foot two hours before kickoff, Patrick Chung was ruled out for Sunday night against the Jets. Chung's absence leaves a void at safety. 

Also inactive are linebackers Brandon Spikes (knee), Dane Fletcher (thumb), Taylor Price (hamstring) Ryan Mallett, Donald Thomas and Shane Vereen. Meanwhile, linebacker Jermaine Cunningham and offensive lineman Nate Solder (concussion) are active and eligible to play. 

This is the second time Chung has missed a game with an injury, as he was inactive for the Week 3 loss to the Bills with a thumb injury.

Cashman: Yanks unlikely to pursue Ortiz

RANDOLPH, Vermont — The Yankees finished second in the American League in 2011 in runs scored with 5.35 per game. Only the Sox, at 5.40 runs per game, scored more.

That being the case, the offseason priority for Yankees GM Brian Cashman is clear.

“I’m interested in shoring up our starting rotation,” Cashman said at the Batting for Vermont event. “We have a great team on the offensive side. I don’t feel there is a need to make any changes there.

“Our biggest priority now is pitching,” he reiterated. “We’ll see how the rest of the winter goes, how our conversations shake out with other clubs, trade stuff, but as of right now, our focus is on pitching.”

That, in turn, suggests that the Yankees are unlikely to get involved in the bidding for DH David Ortiz. Cashman did not rule out the possibility of pursuing the longtime Red Sox slugger, who is a free agent for the first...

Report: Iverson interested in joining Celtics

Finally willing to accept a spot on an NBA bench, Allen Iverson is interested in joining the already veteran Celtics once the lockout ends, his agent Gary Moore told The Globe.

"I have already spoken to Allen about that and many other opportunities," said Moore, "and of course he would be interested in anywhere in the NBA but Boston is particularly attractive to him, because of Danny Ainge, the organization, and one of the most respected coaches he knows in the business in Doc Rivers."

The league's 1996-97 Rookie of the Year, 2000-01 Most Valuable Player and two-time All-Star Game MVP, Iverson ended his NBA career in 2009-10 after playing for four teams (Nuggets, Pistons, Grizzlies, 76ers) in his final two seasons -- unwilling to accept a reserve role on any club.

"I think that is so overplayed," Moore told The Globe. "He said it on more than one occasion. And I've always...
