 SCOREBOARD
Sunday, Oct. 28
Boston at Colorado (8:29 p.m. EDT). Jon Lester is set to start against Aaron Cook in Game 4.

PLUNDERED
Three former Pittsburgh Pirates coaches have found jobs with different organizations. Third-base coach Jeff Cox has taken the same job on Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen's staff. Former Pirates bullpen coach Bobby Cuellar will manage the Minnesota Twins' Double-A New Britain Rock Cats club and Rusty Kuntz, who split the season as a coach between Pittsburgh and Triple-A Indianapolis, was hired as new Kansas City Royals manager Trey Hillman's first-base coach.

WAIVED
San Diego waived second baseman Marcus Giles, the younger brother of right fielder Brian Giles, on Friday. The Padres owe Marcus a $500,000 buyout of his $4 million option. Giles hit .229 with four home runs and 39 RBIs.

ROSTER MOVES
The Chicago White Sox reinstated third baseman Joe Crede from the 60-day disabled list Friday after he missed most of the season with a back injury. Coming off a career year in 2006, Crede batted .216 with four home runs and 22 RBIs in 47 games this season. He was placed on the disabled list June 6 with lower back inflammation and underwent surgery on June 12. The White Sox also reinstated infielder Pablo Ozuna from the 60-day DL and outrighted right-handed reliever Ryan Bukvich to Triple-A Charlotte.

A-MEETING?
The New York Yankees are trying to set up a meeting with Alex Rodriguez while they work on picking a manager. Rodriguez has until the 10th day following the World Series to decide whether to opt out of his record $252 million, 10-year contract and become a free agent. The Yankees plan to offer him an extension and say they would drop out of talks if A-Rod opts out.

SPEAKING
``I just know that it works. I've played here enough to know the balls were flying out of here (before). I've watched MythBusters. They proved it works. You know, Discovery Channel?'' - Red Sox outfielder J.D. Drew on Friday on the humidor at Coors Field. The steel-walled room behind the Rockies clubhouse is always 70 degrees with 50 percent humidity in order to keep game balls from shrinking in Denver's dry, thin air.

SEASONS
Oct. 28
