SCOTTSDALE http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-verlander-jersey , Ariz. (AP) — Bruce Bochy has always managed with his gut. Those same instincts told him it’s nearly time to retire.Bochy announced Monday this will be his last season managing the San Francisco Giants, his 25th in all as a big league manager.He told the team before Monday’s spring training workout at Scottsdale Stadium.“In my mind it’s time,” he said.Bochy, who turns 64 on April 16, had offseason hip replacement surgery that has him moving more swiftly and he insists “the health’s great” and didn’t factor into the choice.He begins his 13th season with the Giants. He led the club to World Series championships in 2010, ’12 and ’14.“I’ve managed with my gut. I came up here in 2007 on my gut. So it’s a gut feeling it’s time,” Bochy said. “It’s been an unbelievable ride. There’s so much in there to be grateful for, with the players, the city, the fans, my ride here. It’s time. I’ll stay in baseball and do something. … I’m not going too far, trust me. I love this game. It’s been in my blood, so sure I’ll be doing something in another capacity and I look forward to it.”Bochy came to San Francisco from the San Diego Padres before the 2007 season, in time to watch Barry Bonds break Hank Aaron’s career home run record that August. He managed Matt Cain’s perfect game in 2012 and a pair of no-hitters by Tim Lincecum against the Padres in July 2013 and June ’14.“This will give me time to go back and reflect and even watch some games and think about some of these great achievements and milestones these players have reached,” Bochy said. “I’ve always had a deep appreciation for the gifts and talents of these players. I consider myself fortunate to have managed players like a Bonds and Lincecum.”Every other manager with three or more titles has been inducted into the Hall of Fame.“I haven’t even thought about that Yuli Gurriel Jersey ,” Bochy said.Giants CEO Larry Baer already envisions a place in Cooperstown for Bochy,“Words cannot adequately express the amount of admiration, gratitude and respect the Giants family has for Bruce Bochy,” Baer said in a statement. “His honesty, integrity, passion and brilliance led to the most successful period of Giants baseball in the history of our franchise. He will always be a Giant and we look forward to honoring him and all of his achievements throughout his final season in San Francisco and inevitably in Cooperstown.”Giants Gold Glove shortstop Brandon Crawford considers himself fortunate to have played for the same manager his entire career.“That’s definitely special. I don’t think many guys have one manager throughout their entire career,” Crawford said. “Obviously we have this year to take care of first. Hopefully we make it a memorable one for him. A part of what’s made him such a good manager over the years is just being able to work with the players he has, whether that’s the bullpen or the bench, he always seemed to plug the right pieces at the right times.”Bochy has faced daily questions about his future, and he wanted to address his plans now and avoid distractions later in the season when he hopes to have a contender again following two years out of the playoffs. He intends to stay in baseball.“It’s something I put a lot of thought in it,” Bochy said. “There’s a lot of things that I look forward to doing, but right now my head’s at this moment, hey, I’m going to focus on getting this team ready. I look forward to one more shot, trust me Jake Marisnick Jersey , and us having a big year. I’m all in.”He spent his first 12 seasons as a manager with the Padres from 1995-2006, guiding San Diego to the NL pennant in 1998.Bochy came to the decision over the winter, but had all but realized this would be his last year at the end of the 2018 season. He discussed it with family and the front office.Executive Brian Sabean was hardly surprised by his dear friend’s decision, saying “that’s a pretty elite and, as we all know, fast treadmill to now do this for 25 years.”“Two different organizations, four trips to the World Series, you win three, that’s pretty elite company,” Sabean said.Once he’s through, Bochy will stick to his simple life of fishing excursions and family.“I’m not going anywhere. I don’t have any cruises planned, trust me, I don’t plan on going up Mount Everest. Baseball, that’s my life. I’ll be around,” Bochy said. “I don’t have a bucket list. There’s no hidden agenda in all this Joe Jimenez Jersey , trust me.” In the middle of a playoff race, the Philadelphia Phillies want Aaron Nola to pitch as much as possible.That’s why manager Gabe Kapler moved up the Phillies’ ace to start in Sunday’s series finale against the Chicago Cubs. Jon Lester takes the ball for the Cubs, who are trying to win the three-game series. The Phillies are looking for their first series win in four weeks. The Cubs have won nine of their last 11 games.Article continues below ...Nola (15-3, 2.10 ERA), a first time All-Star in 2018, is in the thick of the Cy Young race, outpitching Washington’s Max Scherzer in his last two starts.Nola, whose 2.10 ERA ranks second in the National League behind Jacob deGrom, finished August on one of the best stretches of his season.Nola has a 0.64 ERA in his last four starts, giving up two earned runs and 16 hits in 28 innings. The 25-year-old has 33 strikeouts and seven walks during that span.The Phillies are three games behind the Atlanta Braves in the NL East after their loss Saturday. The team is 19-8 in Nola’s 27 starts in 2018, and Kapler was quick to move him up in the rotation.“Mostly because Nola is awesome,” Kapler said to MLB.com, explaining the decision. ” … Nola has been tremendous and we wanted him starting sooner than later.”Nola will be on usual rest because of the Phillies’ off day Thursday. It also gives Nola an extra start at Citizens Bank Park, where he is 9-0 with a 1.94 ERA in 13 starts this season.Nola is 1-0 with a 4.61 ERA in two career starts against the Cubs.Lester (14-5, 3.67) has been dominant against the Phillies in his career. He is 7-0 with a 1.64 ERA http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , 0.978 WHIP and .204 batting average in nine starts against Philadelphia. The 34-year-old has not faced the Phillies this season, but also owns a 1.29 ERA in four starts at Citizens Bank Park.In Lester’s last outing, he gave up three runs, five hits and three walks in six innings against the New York Mets. He also knocked in a two-run single off Noah Syndergaard in a 7-4 victory.The Cubs have won in each of Lester’s last three starts, and he has a 2.04 ERA during that stretch.Chicago saw the return of third baseman Kris Bryant on Saturday. Bryant was playing for the Cubs for the first time since July 23, coming back after missing time with left shoulder inflammation.Bryant, the 2016 MVP, went 2-for-4 with a double in his return, and is batting .279 with an .858 OPS this season.“My shoulder is fine,” Bryant told MLB.com before rejoining the Cubs’ lineup. “My shoulder feels good, strong. I’ve taken all the precautions to make sure it does feel good, which is taking a month off and tweaking some things here and there.“I don’t know if he’s going to give me a day off because of the shoulder or because of feeling physically tired, but my shoulder feels good.”Sunday marks the final regular-season meeting. Chicago has taken three of the first five games against Philadelphia.
