CHICAGO -- Robin Ventura will possibly manage his final game for the White Sox -- and Chris Sale will audition one last time for the American League Cy Young Award -- on Sunday afternoon against the Minnesota Twins. .The White Sox are expected to replace Ventura with bench coach and former Chicago Cubs manager Rick Renteria, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Saturday night.Ventura has a record of 375-434 in five seasons and is in the final year of his contract. The White Sox are 78-83 this season, fourth in the AL Central.Ill talk at the end of the year, Ventura said after his team lost 6-0 to the Twins on Saturday. There can be whatever (report) out there.Meanwhile, Sale could set a career high for victories in a season with his 18th. The left-hander picked up his 17th victory Tuesday, when he struck out seven and held Tampa Bay to three runs in seven innings.Were not doing it for numbers or anything, but he wants to throw, Ventura said. I think thats part of his commitment to being a teammate and all that stuff. So well have a pretty good lineup out there.In the league, Sale is tied for third in strikeouts (227), tied for fourth in victories, fourth in opponents average (.225) and ninth for ERA (3.21). He leads the majors with six complete games.It would be very easy for him to just say hes had enough and not pitch, Ventura said. I think thats a good testament to finishing out the year and doing it right.Sale has finished in the top six in AL Cy Young voting every season from 2012-15. He also reached 17 victories in 2012 during his first season as a starter.I feel as good now as I ever have on a baseball field, physically, Sale said after his last start. This year was the best overall in terms of feeling strong at the end and still having more in the tank.Sale is 8-5 with a 4.05 ERA in 23 games (15 starts) against the Twins.Other candidates for the AL Cy Young include Bostons Rick Porcello, Clevelands Corey Kluber, Baltimores Zach Britton, Torontos J.A.Happ and Detroits Justin Verlander.The White Sox and Twins are closing out disappointing seasons. Chicago went 55-73 after beginning the season 23-10 -- the second-best mark in the majors on May 9. The White Sox are posting their fourth straight losing season.You look throughout sports, not only baseball, when teams that are supposed to do well dont do well, changes are made, not only with coaching staffs and personnel off the field but on the field as well, White Sox catcher Alex Avila said. Thats business as usual.The White Sox lead the season series against Minnesota 12-6.On Friday, the Twins (58-103) set a franchise record for losses in a season since the team moved to Minnesota in 1960. The franchise most recently lost 104 when the Washington Senators went 50-104 in 1949.Rookie right-hander Jose Berrios (2-7, 8.61 ERA) is expected to start for Minnesota. He has yet to pitch against the White Sox.Brian Dozier is expected to miss the game after he experienced right oblique soreness Saturday. He needs one RBI for 100 and two home runs to tie a major league record for second basemen.I hope the guys go out there and try to have a little bit of fun, manager Paul Molitor said. Given all the circumstances, tough to do, but youre still playing. . William Carrier opened the scoring for Cape Breton (6-4-2), but Andrew Ryan tied the game and Brent Andrews put the Mooseheads (8-6-0) in front for good with a short-handed goal at 13:49 of the second period. . Pirlo limped out of Sundays 1-0 win over Udinese after just 13 minutes. Juventus says Pirlo underwent tests on Monday which revealed he has "a second-degree lesion to the collateral medial ligament in his right knee. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. A ticketing frenzy has engulfed Saturdays AFL preliminary final, as Greater Western Sydney and Western Bulldogs fans fight to snap up fast-disappearing seats already being legally scalped for up to $400.A reported 18,000 tickets had already been sold on Monday morning for the 24,000-capacity venue to members of both clubs and ANZ Stadium.The venue for the clash has been a contentious point after the AFL stuck with historical modelling and scheduled the match at the Giants home ground rather than the much larger ANZ Stadium.The leagues decision, made on the basis that a maximum of 8000 people usually travel to watch their clubs play finals footy interstate, sparked fears the Bulldogs 40,000-strong member base would be left disappointed.The Giants have a membership of around 16,000.Die-hard Dogs fans camped out at Footscray overnight to secure their tickets while others encountered problems attempting to buy them online.Hours before the leftovers were due to be made available to the general public on Monday afternoon, tickets had already been advertised for re-sale on Ticketmaster at prices significantly higher than those set by the AFL.Category 1 seats initially on sale for $179 were up for re-sale at up to $401.The AFL FFans Association described the practice as legalised scalping and called on the league to address the issue. This is taking advantage of desperate fans, president Gerry Eeman said.It is legalised scalping which facilitates blatant profiteering.The AFL will need to do something about this in the off-season.The re-sale rip-off has been happening for each final.Playing the game at a small stadium like Spotless means tickets are already scarce, which means supporters are even more vulnerable than usual.It is also wrong that these resellers have had access to up to eight tickets each.Wed like to know how this can happen for such a high-demand game with extremely limited ticket availability.Giants captain Callan Ward still believed the AFL had made the correct decision in granting his team their right to host.I think it is (the right call), Ward said.All our boys love playing at Spotless.When the fans get out there its a really good feeling.Its a great ground to watch the game at, I think it was voted No.1 in Australia.Its a great ground to watch the game and the players love being there. Wholesale Jerseys From China China Jerseys WholesaleWholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China China NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Gear Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys From China Discount NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
