Whole Foods opens to delight, dismay NICOLAUS CZARNECKI/METRO

‘Zombies’ rush the Federal building The Fed goes into lockdown as protesters stage ‘die-in’ at entrances Student zombies march in solidarity with Occupy throughout city NICOLAUS CZARNECKI/METRO

Workers inside Boston’s Federal Reserve Bank watched from their windows as a small army of zombies lurched toward the entrance of the building in protest, waving flags, their faces dripping with fake blood. The student-run Halloween rally marked what protesters called “The Death of the American Dream,” in solidarity with the Occupy Boston movement. The zombie infestation led to the bank going into lockdown mode while occupiers staged a “die-in” at two separate doorways. Officials inside the bank scrambled to close the entrances to keep protesters out as students flopped to the ground, playing dead and moaning. Occupy Boston protester Casey Herz read a “vigil” as people lay lifeless along the walkway leading to the building. “This is for the lost life of democracy and the death of long lost minds, bodies and souls,” he said. “We are victims of a system that continues to work against the 99 percent.” During the march, occupiers also played dead at Northeastern University President Joseph Aoun’s house on Beacon Hill as well as the State House steps, and staged a sit-in at

’Tis the season for some Metro Magic The holiday season is upon us and Metro launches our inaugural toy drive today Buy toys through Toys R Us and they are shipped directly to Metro’s Congress Street office US Marines will come to our office in December to pick up and distribute the gifts to children EMILY ANNE EPSTEIN/METRO

Metro is thrilled to announce the launch of our 2011 Metro Magic giving campaign and, as the giftgiving season begins, we are asking our daily readers to give back to needy children in Boston. We first launched Metro Magic last year at our sister paper in New York City and were so overwhelmed by the generosity of Metro readers that, this year, we decided to bring the toy drive to Boston and Philadelphia as well. We are again partnering with Toys for Tots, the nonprofit run by the U.S. Marines, who will come to our Boston office to pick up the toys and distribute them to hundreds of different charities. In addition to Toys for Tots, Metro Boston is also partnering with The Home for Little Wanderers,

which delivers services to thousands of children and families each year through a system of residential, community-based and prevention programs, direct care services and advocacy. “We are excited to be partnering with the Metro this year for The Home for Little Wanderers’ Big Wishes Gift Drive,” said Jason Etheridge, The Home’s senior corporate relations manager. “Thanks to the generosity of Metro readers, we’ll be able to make the holiday wishes of thousands of children who are living in at-risk circumstances come true.” Starting today, and running through December, keep an eye out for the Metro Magic logo daily. This season, we hope you will remember that one gift can make a big difference. METRO

What is Toys for Tots?

BOSTON. Toys for Tots

started in 1947, when a group of U.S. Marine reservists got together and cleaned up small toys and gave them away to needy families. Now it’s one of the biggest nonprofits in the nation. Toys for Tots works by giving away the toys they collect to other nonprofits. Through the generosity, assistance and goodwill of Boston’s citizens, the Greater Boston Toys for Tots program has been one of the most successful in the country and has gained national notoriety in past years. METRO

How to take part

What to give?

1: Log on to

www.metro.us and look for this Metro Magic logo:

Toys took over our NYC office last year!

2: One click on the logo will take you to a “Wish List” we have set up via a secure link on ToysRUs.com. Once there, you can see all the toys we’ve already requested for kids and more are being added daily. Simply select the toys you want and purchase them. That’s it!

Marines will pick up toys at Metro’s office.

Selecting only the toys on our wish list ensures that all the gifts will be shipped to our offices and then picked up by the Marines. If you donate, e-mail us at charity@metro.us letting us know what you gave and we’ll shout out a “thank-you” in the paper! METRO

One of the hundreds of children we were able to help last year unwraps a gift donated by a Metro reader.

BOSTON. Metro is collecting new, unwrapped gifts, not clothes. Things like action figures, dolls, board games, and sports toys like a football are always good. And don’t forget about older children, ages 11 and up. An older child would love to receive an MP3 player, a makeup kit or a poster from their favorite “Twilight” movie this year. And you don’t have to give much. Spending $10 or $20 on a toy or two for a needy child can make a big difference. METRO

Expert says MJ gave self a fatal dose Michael Jackson likely injected himself with a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol after popping an extra eight sedatives without his doctor’s knowledge, a Los Angeles court has heard. Dr. Paul White, the last defense witness in the involuntary manslaughter trial of the singer’s physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, said that self-administration best explains sedative levels found in Jackson’s system after his death. White said that based on the amount of propofol found in Jackson’s urine, he believed the pop star gave himself a further injection of propofol about one hour

But the FBI said no classified information was stolen. The FBI released 10 videos, including some of Chapman wandering

An hour later she bought a new cell phone under a fake name and the next day she failed to show up at another meeting with the undercover agent.

THE WORD

Metro’s Monica Weymouth shares her take on the world of gossip

Kim Kardashian files for divorce

A

whole 72 days after walking down the aisle with NBA player Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce yesterday morning. The unhappy couple is not seeking an annulment, and Kim checked off the usual “irreconcilable differences,” asking the court to deny spousal support to Humphries.

IN HER WORDS Kim’s explanation to E! Online contains all the hallmark phrases of an expensive, publicist-kissed divorce statement, with the notable exception of “utmost respect”: “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.”

It’s the second divorce for Kim — who split with music producer Damon Thomas in 2004 after four years of marriage — and the first for Humphries, who was blindsided by the filing, according to TMZ, and is “bummed.” As it’s all but impossible to remember, they very loosely tied the knot on Aug. 20 at a ceremony that was estimated to cost

around $10 million. (You somehow missed that? A re-run of the two-part, fourhour “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event” is scheduled to air from 8 a.m.-noon on E! today.) We’re not saying we’re perfect over here, but we would have the decency to fake it for 18 months or so. Seriously, we’ve committed to packs of gum for longer than 72 days.

By the numbers We do the math on Kim’s marriage:

3 reasons it didn’t work Why didn’t it work between a career reality show star and an unemployed NBA player who stood to gain millions by wedding in front of cameras? Even we refuse to dignify that one with an answer. Instead, let’s speculate as to why it ended faster than we can send back a Netflix DVD.

Salma Hayek reunites with Antonio Banderas in the animated ‘Puss in Boots’ She hopes it introduces her to a whole new generation ‘Or else I die,’ she says

S

alma Hayek knew she had one major problem coming her way after taking on a role in “Puss in Boots,” given its appeal to children: explaining to her 4-year-old daughter, Valentina, that cartoon characters are actually voiced by human actors. “I was worried about that because it’s like the Santa thing in a way,” Hayek explains. “I thought I had some time, but I took her to see a movie and in the previews I see ‘Puss in Boots,’” the actress remembers. “I had two seconds to break it to her.

Before I could saying anything, my character came on screen and she said, ‘Oh my gosh Mommy, that cat sounds just like you.’ I said, ‘It is me.’ I had to explain to her that it’s not real. It’s drawings. I think she was a little upset, maybe a little confused. Now, she loves it. She’s so proud of me.” In the film, Hayek voices Kitty Softpaws, both a romantic interest and professional rival for Antonio

Banderas’ titular feline. But Hayek didn’t have a lot of time to get into character as Kitty, even if she was expecting some. “Chris never showed me the script,” she says of director Chris Miller. “I just showed up blind.” Instead of presenting concept drawings or script pages, Miller would explain the scenes and stories to Hayek, helping her conceptualize the felinefueled adventure. “It reminded me of my grandmother, who would tell me the most amazing tales and you had to imag-

Hayek says she is happy to have taken the leap into animation, particularly because it brings her all new fans — or at least that’s the aim. “I sure hope so because I’m too old,” she says with a laugh. “The ones who have followed me are getting older with me and they don’t want to go to the movies anymore. So, I need a new generation or else I die.” NED EHRBAR

The name Sandra Bernhard is synonymous with outrageous. The self-described “provocateur” has made a long, impressive career out of pushing the limits whether on stage, film or television. Probably most well-known for her groundbreaking turn as the lesbian best friend on the sitcom, “Roseanne” and her numerous wildly entertaining appearances on “Letterman,” the comic/singer is bringing her latest stage show “I Love Being Me, Don’t You?” to Boston this week. The critically acclaimed show is vintage Bernhard.

“I definitely want to stir up people and make them look at things. I don’t purposefully try to offend people but I do elicit some very strong reactions. If I’m pushing some button, they’re hiding something.”

“It kind of reflects the global, the political, the emotional, absurd, fun and sexy. It’s sort of introspective, wrapped around different musical elements,” she says. “I definitely want to stir up people and make them look at things. I don’t purposefully try to offend people but I do elicit some very strong reactions. If I’m pushing some button, they’re hiding something.” She says the show is not just for diehard fans, but those people will have an easier time adjusting. “Die-hard fans who get me on all the levels of irony and camp are there to go on the crazy ride. Everyone else sort of tiptoes into it, not really knowing what I do. I don’t think it could possibly turn anyone off. I have great compassion for everyone. I just try to say, ‘Hey, look at this!’ Everybody needs to be called out. I call myself out all the time.” Though Bernhard loves being the freewheeling, in-your-face diva on stage, she’s quick to point out that’s not who she is offstage. “It’s a persona, she’s definitely way up there in a place nobody could possibly live,” she says. “I’m a pretty solid citizen. I’m not a drinker, have never been into drugs. I take my daughter to school, I’m a strict disciplinarian. I like doing laundry and washing dishes. But that’s not sexy.” Sandra Bernhard

Have a novel November

Sam’s goals WEEK 1:

Want to crank out a bestseller in 30 days? NaNoWriMo can help Our reporter is up to the challenge How’s this for a novel concept? Write a novel in a month, starting today. That’s exactly what a quarter of a million people will do as part of National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo began with 21 writers in the summer of 1999, and each year, the participants grew exponentially, from 5,000 in 2001 to the 250,000 reportedly registered on www.nanowrimo.org for this year. Headquartered in San Francisco, NaNoWriMo is all about “quantity not quality.” In other words, they want you to write without thinking.

Sam writes a novel SAMANTHA SWEENEY TWITTER: @SAMWRITESANOVEL

At the end, you’ll have 170 pages of material you can edit. It’s also a chance for those who have always wanted to write but constantly put it off, to be motivated by the looming Nov. 30 midnight deadline. Since the first month in 1999, more than 140,000

Without NaNoWriMo, this photo would probably never exist.

novels have been written, with more than 100 of those getting published. Sara Gruen wrote the No. 1 New York Times best-seller, “Water For Elephants” as a NaNoWriMo novel. So without the NaNoWriMo site, the world might have never seen Robert Pattinson paired with Reese Witherspoon in the major motion picture adaptation. Though donations are encouraged, there is no fee to participate in the project, and in December, visitors to the site can read the work of writers who met the minimum 50,000 word count.

The writer’s process It is possible to write a novel in one month. The question I should be asking is, is it possible for me to do it? I have an idea in my head of some of the characters, but other than that, I have absolutely no idea where this story will go. However, the idea of writing without a plan excites me. If I don’t have an outline of a story, I should at least have an outline of the next four weeks:

Write at least 1,700 words or more a day to get off on the right, inspired foot. Concentrate on writing without thinking and get out of the habit of going over every sentence. Wake up early and write, as opposed to waiting until nighttime. Develop definite characters with solid backgrounds.

WEEK 2: By the beginning of Week 2, I should have already figured out my conflict and have begun to lead the characters to it. NaNoWriMo suggests 22,000 words by the weekend, but I’ll aim for 25,000. Start to think about the fu-

FOLLOW SAM’S PROGRESS ON TWITTER @SAMWRITESANOVEL

ture of the story: Where will these characters go and how should it affect their actions in this point of the novel?

WEEK 3: A conflict should be developed and actions should be leading up to this point. Try to stay positive: It’s half over, and my sleep pattern will be normal again soon! Main goal: Write as much as I can as the last week (and Thanksgiving!) approaches.

WEEK 4: One week left means my characters will most likely be at or going through the climax of the novel. The next question on my mind will be: How will this end? My (hopefully tiny) bit of procrastination will probably show through at the end of this week, so I’ll aim for 2,000- to 5,000- word days. Hit 50,000 words and submit my novel to the website by midnight on Nov. 30. Get book deal, fame ensues!

Inside the mind of Jason Voorhees Halloween might be over, but scaring people is a full-time job for ‘Friday the 13th’ villain Kane Hodder In his memoir, the actor spills his (not others’) guts Thanks to Kane Hodder, you may never view a hockey mask as a mere sports shield. The 56-year-old actor-stuntman has made a living inspiring fright in others — he played Jason Voorhees in four “Friday the 13th” films — and in his new book, “Unmasked,” he offers a peek into his world. You look terrifying on the cover.

That’s my friendly look. I was trying to be as happy as I could.

KANE HODDER

Q&A

Believability. That was my biggest thing I always did with the Jason stuff — whatever I did I wanted it to look natural. There are so many villains I watch that look, to me, not that convincing.

Are people scared to meet you? At times. For the most part, people are excited. It’s a cool deal, especially considering I went into this business to be a stuntman. I never in a million years thought I’d be in a position of signing autographs, for God’s sake.

Like who?

Oh no, of course not, I love all kinds of animals. Not heights, not claustrophobic.

I hate to name names (laughs) but some of the other Jasons I don’t think looked too convincing. One that really convinced me in the last couple years is a movie called “Red Hill.” The villain is played by a guy named Tom E. Lewis. He was so convincing as that character that I think that that made the whole movie.

Public speaking?

Did he scare you?

Oh no, I do that all the time.

No. I liked his performance. (Laughs)

Well, if that’s happy, then I don’t want to see you mad.

I wouldn’t recommend it. Do you prefer being behind the scenes as a stuntman or out in front as the villain?

I do like playing a main character in a film, there’s no doubt about that. If that character still has a lot of stunt work to perform that’s the perfect situation.

Occupy: Where do you stand?

“mob of lazy bums.” I mistakenly saw what I thought were normal everyday working people and even many from a station in life higher than yours. Thanks again for sparing me from watching FOX news and getting this same misinformation.

RE: “SPEAKING OF GREEDY BUMS”: The letters

ED HERMAN, CHELSEA

complain that OWS are freeloaders because they are demonstrating instead of working. But we need someone calling for change! The Tea Party gets much more funding from the right-wing billionaires and corporations, so they are bigger freeloaders. Plus, OWS is telling the truth about the Wall Street/GOP alliance.

Put the letters by Lavelle, Carrieri, Xue, and Bovinski together and you’ve got 202 words of childish ranting and not a single argument against why OWS exists in the first place. I hope all four were well compensated for writing such drivel.

HARRY THORN, VIA E-MAIL

JOSEPH CONNELL, VIA E-MAIL

BARB MILUSKI, VIA E-MAIL

It’s obvious your coverage of the Occupy Wall Street movement is very biased against the people looking out for the best of interests of the poor and middle class in this country (i.e. the 99 percent). Reading your letters in yesterday’s publication, you have one promovement correspondence and four that are against the move-

Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22. This could be one of those rare days when, without even trying, an abundance of good ideas pop in your head. Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21. Lucky you, because there is a good chance that something profitable will develop that will be engineered by a good friend working on your behalf. Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19. Ignore people who try to tell you that your expectations are unduly optimistic and infeasible. They’re wrong. Don’t accept a word they are saying, and follow your own instincts. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 19. Many times we are more effective when we keep our intentions to ourselves, and this may be one of those days. Don’t discuss anything with others until the cat has departed the bag. Pisces Feb. 20-March 20. Although you aren’t likely to be expecting it, you could learn two valuable lessons about yourself from your past experiences. What you discover will be put to good use. Aries March 21-April 19. This is one day when it really would behoove you to set goals and then go after them. Everything in your chart will be cooperating with whatever it is you plan.

I am nowhere near the 1 percent, which makes me part of the 99 percent, and I am 100 percent against what OWS stands for, as are many thousands of other Americans that are not mega-rich. OWS needs to adjust that 99 percent to 33 percent or 66 percent depending on which poll you believe. God bless our great nation.

ment. Where is the balance? The polls show that more people support the movement than are against it, so why are you posting all these negative letters? In addition, the letters you are publishing often have the word “bum” in them. Is your paper written for elementary school kids, or is your publication targeted at educated adults? D. PERRY, VIA E-MAIL

I hope that Mr. Lavelle, Mr. Carrieri, and Ms. Tina Xue realize that certain people in Egypt said the same things about the demonstrations earlier this year in Cairo’s Tahrir Square.

Keep them as brief as possible, preferably under 100 words. Metro reserves the right to edit all letters. Please include your name and contact information.

REX BRYANT SR., VIA E-MAIL

Taurus April 20-May 20. You should discuss certain complicated issues that have been dumped in your lap with those whose thinking you respect. Gemini May 21-June 20. You may not be able to do the same for yourself, but you are likely to possess a special knack for helping others sort out their financial dilemmas. Cancer June 21-July 22. You have an innate sense of understanding that people, not things, make the world go around. You can use this knowledge to your and everybody else’s benefit. Leo July 23-Aug. 22. Being able to select exactly what tasks or assignments you wish to perform will work in your favor, allowing you to pick a job that actually gives you a sense of accomplishment. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22. If you have a choice, be selective regarding with whom you choose to socialize. If you don’t pick people who think as you do, the day could end up being a humdinger of a bummer. Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 23. This could be a perfect day to go bargain hunting, especially if you are looking for a big-ticket item that is pertinent to your family’s needs. You may find it at a price you can afford.

Trop: AC hot spot The Tropicana has emerged as a real nightlife destination of its own, thanks to the bars and restaurants of The Quarter. The Trop’s premier in-house dining option, Fin, specializes in great seafood and prime oceanfront views. Feel like kicking back with a more casual scene? There’s also a Hooters, an Irish pub, a sports bar and another dozen options to suit your taste. But with 12 casino hotels to choose from, it shouldn’t be hard to find a spot to fit all your needs.

Atlantic City golf: A sure bet Known best for casinos and beaches, AC certainly stacks up as a stellar golf destination With more than a dozen courses and lots of lodging options, build a trip to suit any group

T

hink “golf destination” and a few locales come to mind. Atlantic City might not be the first off your tongue, but golfers in the Northeast (and beyond) need to keep the casino destination in the mix for any future golf getaways. Right off the bat is Atlantic City’s convenience, but if the golf stinks, then what’s the point? There’s no problem there, as AC offers more than a dozen golf courses within a 20-minute drive in all ranges of cost and quality, offering the perfect mix for a completely customized itinerary. The highlight of the AC region is the top-rated public golf course in New Jersey, Atlantic City Country Club, a true destination course. Built in the 1800s, a round on this seaside gem brings to mind Boardwalk Empire and the early days of Atlantic City as a vacation hot spot. Midseason rates of $225 are at the top of the charts for New Jersey, but it’s during the shoulder season that bargains abound (midweek rounds well below $100 is one of the great deals in golf). Doubling the benefit, golf courses in the Northeast are always in better shape in October and November than they are in July and August. A charming Old World locker room adds to the experience, as does authentic Atlantic City history. The 18th hole is named for the bell once used to warn golfers that the final trolly was headed back to town (about a 15-minute drive from the casinos today). RON VARRIAL

travel guide City breaks

Hotel hookup

You can capture the beauty of Toronto without spending too much cash.

Tour Toronto like a celebrity (but on a budget) How you can afford Canada’s largest — and most glamorous! — city if you follow these tips Find your people: For the best chance of spotting a star, be sure to explore upscale Yorkville, or the trendy Ossington strip. You just may find celebs shopping for diamonds at Royal De Versailles or primping at the Hazelton Hotel. Upgrade your accommodations: Toronto is a town swimming with high-end hotels. Check out the Gladstone Hotel, a grand Victorian on West Queen West. While rooms here are small, each is a commissioned work of art. Playful options include the Faux Naturelle, a riff on cheeky pastorals, or the Model Citizen, sporting a peacock theme (light-up tail feathers, anyone?).

Indulge in the little things: Ogling the goods at Chanel or Cartier is a fun diversion, but not many people can afford to leave with a shopping bag in hand. Why not shop somewhere you can afford to buy? Confections at SOMA chocolatemaker are just as gorgeous as any Bloor Street bauble. The fair-trade, organic sweets here have been winning awards for their smooth and unexpected flavors like gianduja laced with Pop Rocks (don’t worry, more traditional pairings exist, too). Find nourishments at haute bar restaurants. Dining in the Ritz-Carlton’s TOCA restaurant — complete with a glass cheese cave holding $1,100 wheels of Gouda — will set you back plenty. But who says you need a dinner table to

do dinner? Belly up to the TOCA bar and make a meal of their Latin-inspired small plates, like pulled pork tortillas. While you eat, you can also enjoy some of the best cocktails in town. Mixologists here combine molecular gastronomy with fine spirits to concoct delicious potions; try the Minted Cucumber Collins. Travel in style: Let the stars keep their limos — streetcars are the best way to get to know the city. Like San Francisco’s cable cars, they give the city a dash of personality, and jumping on a cheery red car as it rolls downtown is a cinematic moment no visitor should miss. DOROTHY ROBINSON

dorothy.robinson@metro.us

If you’re visiting a new city — or just want to see a different side of your own — the navigators at Renaissance Hotels want to make sure you can access all that it has to offer, on your own terms. As part of this navigation program, you fill out a questionnaire that asks your food, drink, shopping and activity preferences for a night on the town.

And from there, leave it up to the experts. They’ll curate a night based on your interests. No need to worry about how you’ll ever get into that trendy restaurant or buzzedabout walking tour that they recommend — the hotel hooks you up with reservations and transportation. Can’t make it to the hotel? Download the Renaissance’s iTunes app ($4.99) to unlock hidden hot spots in your city. MEREDITH ENGEL

Patriots secondary up to its old tricks After solid performances, passing defense reverts to poor Belichick blames torching on adjustments coming late — and simple ineffectiveness

The Patriots offensive attack Sunday was skewed wildly toward the pass, with Tom Brady attempting 35 throws to just 12 total runs. It was ineffective. But before you worry about seeing more of the same, know that wasn’t the plan. “A lot of plays that are in the fourth quarter, we were down by 13 points, 10 points,” coach Bill Belichick said. “There’s going to be more passes ... than there are going to be runs when you’re in that situation.” METRO

The Patriots could do little to slow down the Steelers’ attack Sunday.

They are who we thought they were! The Patriots secondary, that is. After consecutive games of above-average pass defense, the much-maligned unit took another nosedive Sunday at Pittsburgh. Let’s recap the weekend’s events:

On Friday, the Pats released veteran cornerback Leigh Bodden. On Saturday, they placed secondround pick Ras-I Dowling on IR. On Sunday, they gave up 365 yards through the air and 23 passing first downs, and allowed the Steelers to convert 10 of 16 third-down tries.

Yeah, about that ... “There are things they did that obviously caused some problems,” coach Bill Belichick said. “We either didn’t make adjustments to it quick enough or, in some cases, we tried to adjust to it but we just couldn’t get it done the way we needed to get it done.” Three of Steelers’ 10 longest plays came on third-and-11 or longer, all of which were converted into first downs. Six third-down plays ended in double-digit passing yardage for Ben Roethlisberger, and two thirddown plays resulted in

“We stopped them a couple times, held them to a couple field goals, but sometimes you have to hold them to zero.” PATRICK CHUNG

Patriots coach Bill Belichick yesterday didn’t find fault with Kevin Faulk’s first outing of the season. No worries there — he was pretty solid, all told. What’s nice for Pats fans is that Belichick expects

passing touchdowns. “It was communication, a little bit of lack of focus on our part,” safety James Ihedigbo said. “I’ll put it on myself and the secondary, and Pat [Chung] I’m sure will put it on himself as well. But those are things we’re going to rectify and correct. “I mean, 10-for-16 on third down, you have to correct that in this league to win. So like I said, we’ll wear it, but we’ll have a chip on our shoulder this week and be ready to go.” JIMMY TOSCANO sports@metro.us

La Russa calls it quits after one last crown Around baseball It was an active day around Major League Baseball. The Braves traded former Red Sox RHP Derek Lowe to the Indians for Class-A LHP Chris Jones. Lowe, who’s scheduled to make $15 million in 2012, had a 5.05 ERA this year. The Red Sox declined 2012 options on RHPs Scott Atchison and Dan Wheeler, making them free agents. The Cubs exercised their $16 million option on Aramis Ramirez, but the 3B used his contractural right to void the deal. He forfeits his $2 million buyout, but enters a potentially lucrative FA market.

His 2,728 wins rank third all-time He changed the way managers use bullpens Won three World Series Tony La Russa walked away from baseball yesterday, retiring on his own terms just days after managing the St. Louis Cardinals to the World Series title. “I think this just feels like it's time to end it,” the 67-year-old told reporters at a news conference. La Russa, who said he made the decision to retire two months ago, spent 33 years as a big league manger, totaling 2,728 wins. That’s the third-most all time (behind Hall of Famers Connie Mack and John McGraw), and the most by a skipper who didn’t start his career in

the 19th century. But he’s perhaps best known for changing the way managers use their bullpens. He helped estab-

lish the role of a closer, and was among the first — and certainly the most frequent — users of right- and left-handed specialists. La Russa played for the A’s, Braves and Cubs in the 1960s and ’70s, and started his managerial career with the White Sox in 1979. He stayed in Chicago until 1986, before moving to Oakland for nine years. He won the 1989 World Series there. La Russa came to St. Louis in 1996, and guided the Cardinals to world titles in 2006 and this year. He’s a four-time Manager of the Year. METRO

It’s still Tebow Time in Denver

GETTY IMAGES

Despite a terrible showing Sunday, Tim Tebow is still the Broncos’ starting QB. For now. Coach John Fox said yesterday he’ll start Tebow against the Raiders this weekend, but cautioned that the former first-round pick must improve to keep

his job. “I think at the end of the day, we have to see if he can improve and get better in the passing game,” Fox said. Tebow had two turnovers returned for TDs in a 45-10 loss to the Lions on Sunday. METRO
