Los  Angeles Lakers owner  Jerry Buss died Monday at the age of 80. The Lakers

said only that Buss died early Monday morning after a long illness, but it had

been  reported last week that Buss had been hospitalized because of cancer and

wasn't expected to live much longer. Buss purchased the Lakers, as well as the

NHL's  Kings  and the Forum, in  1979 from Jack  Kent Cooke for a reported $67

million.  The  Lakers  have  won  10  of  their  16  NBA  titles  under  Buss'



For  the  first time  since  the  process began  in  1974,  there will  be  no

arbitration  hearings  in Major League  Baseball. Baltimore and pitcher Darren

O'Day officially agreed to a deal on Monday. The Orioles right-hander had been

the last of 133 players that filed for arbitration to work out a new contract.

The  previous record low for arbitration hearings had been three, first set in

2005 and matched in 2009 and 2011.

The  Pittsburgh  Pirates are reportedly set  to extend the contract of manager

Clint  Hurdle,  who is  entering the  final season  of his original three-year

deal.  According to  a Pittsburgh  newspaper, the  team will  likely make  the

announcement  later  this week,  possibly  Wednesday  when club  chairman  Bob

Nutting  is in  Bradenton for an event  at spring training. The paper said the

extension  will  take Hurdle  through the  2014 season with  a club option for

2015.  Hurdle was  hired in November 2010 after the Pirates suffered through a

57-105  season.  The team  has improved dramatically  under Hurdle, winning 72

games  in 2011 and  79 last year, although both seasons ended with late swoons

after the club had been in playoff contention through July.

Milwaukee  Brewers  infielder Mat Gamel will  miss the 2013 season with a torn

anterior  cruciate ligament  in his right knee. Gamel, who was limited to just

21  games last  season  after tearing  the  same ACL  in  May, aggravated  his

surgically repaired right knee in the team's first full-squad workout over the

weekend.  The  27-year-old infielder was  expected to fill  in as a starter at

first  base for Corey Hart, who will be sidelined for at least the first month

of  the season  after undergoing offseason knee surgery. Gamel has appeared in

106  games  over parts of five  seasons with the  Brewers and is a career .229

hitter with six home runs and 29 RBI.
