Extra Innings: 9/30/11

Extra Innings is a link dump that will run every weekday evening that features news stories that The Asylum didn't get to that day, or just posts throughout the White Sox blogosphere that are worth your attention.

- The White Sox announced on Friday that they'd agreed to a contract extension with Sergio Santos. It's for three years and $8.25 million with club options from 2015-17. Which is a pretty damn good deal for the White Sox. If the magic of the last two seasons wears off on Sergio, then it's really not costing the team all that much. [White Sox]

- Let the speculation begin for real: Terry Francona is no longer the manager of the Boston Red Sox. As I said in my post this morning, I think Francona is too expensive for the White Sox to really consider him, but that's not gonna stop a million people from writing about it over the next week. [Hardball Talk]

- This would be a lot more fun if there was an option under Alex Rios that just said "DIE." [ESPN Chicago]

- I was amazed that Stankevitz admitted that he didn't hate Coors Light in this post, but then when I saw all the different types of Goose Island that he drinks, I realized he just doesn't have taste buds. [Beerleaguer]

- Since he's gone, I'm going to severely cut back the amount of attention paid to Ozzie here, but even though this is a few days old, it's still pretty damned wonderful. [With Leather]
