Tampa, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Tampa Bay Rays finalized their coaching staff for the 2015 season on Friday, naming Tom Foley as bench coach for new manager Kevin Cash. Foley had spent the past 13 seasons as the Rays third base coach. Charlie Montoyo will take over as third base coach and former Rays star Rocco Baldelli will be the clubs new first base coach. George Hendrick, who had been the first base coach, has accepted a role as the special advisor to baseball operations. The remainder of the coaching staff will remain intact, as Jim Hickey returns for a ninth season as pitching coach and Derek Shelton enters his sixth year as hitting coach. Stan Boroski will remain the bullpen coach and Jamie Nelson will stay on as major league coach. I feel very fortunate to have inherited a staff that is both respected throughout baseball and knowledgeable of our players and the culture, said Cash in a statement Friday. I am thrilled to have Tom as our bench coach. I have great respect for the role he has played in the organization from its inception and will lean on him for his experience and judgment. In adding Charlie and Rocco, we have two men who combined have more than 30 years invested in this organization at many different levels and have great familiarity with our players. Both have meant a great deal to the Rays, and I am grateful they will be joining Jim, Derek, Jamie and Stan for what I feel is a great team. Cash was named the Rays new manager earlier this month, replacing Joe Maddon, who stepped down in October after baseball operations head Andrew Friedman also left. Friedman went to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Maddon quickly found a home as the skipper of the Chicago Cubs. Mateus Uribe Colombia Jersey . -- At the beginning of training camp, Andrew Bogut set a goal to play all 82 regular-season games and regain his place among the NBAs best centres. Jose Fernando Cuadrado Jersey . For the Miami Heat, that was outstanding news. LeBron James scored the last of his 32 points on a layup that put Miami up for good with 11. http://www.nationalcolombiafootball.com/...olombia-jersey/. But its also a smart game. Theres more to the Kings than banging bodies. They take a toll mentally on their opponents. Radamel Falcao Jersey . Pillar is batting .305 with 17 extra-base hits, 19 RBI and five stolen bases in 34 games for Buffalo this season. The right-handed hitter had an International League high, 18-game hitting streak this season and currently owns an IL high 26-game on base streak. Santiago Arias Jersey . -- Two out of three aint bad. SAN FRANCISCO -- Anger, frustration and calls for action echoed around the NBA on Saturday after an audio recording surfaced of a man identified as Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling telling his girlfriend not to bring black people to games. Everybody except for the embattled Clippers owner, who has a decades-long history of alleged discrimination and offensive behaviour, seemed to have a response. The league said it was investigating the recording posted on TMZs website, calling the comments "disturbing and offensive." President Barack Obama, asked to respond at a news conference with Malaysias prime minister during Obamas visit to the country Sunday, called the reported remarks "incredibly offensive racist statements." "I dont think I have to interpret those statements for you, they kind of speak for themselves," Obama said. "When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you dont really have to do anything. You just let them talk. And thats what happened here." Obama also expressed confidence the NBA would address the situation, and said the United States still wrestles with "the legacy of race and slavery and segregation." "Obviously, the NBA is a league that is beloved by fans all across the country," Obama said. "Its got an awful lot of African-American players. Its steeped in African-American culture. And, I suspect that the NBA is going to be deeply concerned in resolving this." Lakers Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, a target of Sterlings remarks, said he wouldnt attend Clippers games as long as Sterling was the owner. Miami Heat star LeBron James asked new NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to take aggressive measures, saying "there is no room for Donald Sterling in our league." "Obviously, if the reports are true, its unacceptable in our league," James said. "It doesnt matter, white, black or Hispanic -- all across the races its unacceptable. As the commissioner of our league, they have to make a stand. They have to be very aggressive with it. I dont know what it will be, but we cant have that in our league." Silver spoke Saturday night in Memphis, Tenn., before the Grizzlies game against Oklahoma City, repeating that the league finds the audio tape "disturbing and offensive" and that Sterling agreed to not attend the Clippers game Sunday at Golden State. "All members of the NBA family should be afforded due process and a fair opportunity to present their side of any controversy, which is why Im not yet prepared to discuss any potential sanctions against Donald Sterling," Silver said. "We will, however, move extraordinarily quickly in our investigation." Silver said the NBA needs to confirm authenticity of the audio tape and interview both Sterling and the woman in the recording. The Clippers will be back in Los Angeles for Game 5 on Tuesday night. "We do hope to have this wrapped up in the next few days," Silver said. Clippers coach Doc Rivers said players discussed boycotting Game 4 of their first-round playoff series during a 45-minute team meeting but quickly decided against it. "I think the biggest statement we can make as men, not as black men, as men, is to stick together and show how strong we are as a group," Rivers said. "Not splinter. Not walk. Its easy to protest. The protest will be in our play." Clippers President Andy Roeser said in a statement that the team did not know if the tape is legitimate or has been altered. He said the woman on the tape, identified by TMZ as V. Stiviano, "is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would get even." Roeser also said the recording does not reflect Sterlings beliefs. He added that Sterling is "upset and apologizes for sentiments attributed to him" about Johnson, whom he called Sterlings friend. In the recording posted on TMZ, the man questionns his girlfriends association with minorities.dddddddddddd TMZ reported Stiviano, who is of black and Mexican descent, posted a picture of herself with Johnson on Instagram -- which has since been removed. The man asked Stiviano not to broadcast her association with black people or bring black people to games. The man specifically mentioned Johnson on the recording, saying "dont bring him to my games, OK?" "I will never go to a Clippers game again as long as Donald Sterling is the owner," Johnson responded on Twitter. He also said the alleged comments are "a black eye for the NBA" and said he felt bad that friends such as Rivers and Clippers point guard Chris Paul had to work for Sterling. Paul released a statement through the players union that said "this is a very serious issue which we will address aggressively." He also said Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson, a former NBA All-Star guard who is the chairman of a search committee to find a new director for the union, would take a leading role to help players address the matter. Paul and Clippers All-Star forward Blake Griffin declined further comment on the issue after the teams practice at the University of San Francisco. Other players were not made available as Rivers said he would speak for the team. "A lot of guys voiced their opinions. None of them were happy about it," Rivers said. "This was a situation where were trying to go after something very important for us, something that weve all dreamed about all our childhoods. Donald or anyone else had nothing to do with that dream, and were not going to let anything get in the way of those dreams." On TNTs halftime studio show Saturday, host Charles Barkley said "this is the first test of Adam Silver." He said Silver had to "suspend him and fine him immediately." In Dallas, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said "I have plenty of opinions, just not going to share them. He fended off several inquiries before saying: "Obviously, if any business or entrepreneur says or does things that arent congruent with what the organization is trying to convey, thats a problem. But its not my problem." Warriors coach Mark Jackson, who played for the Clippers from 1992-94, said of Sterlings comments: "My feeling would be the same, no matter if I was coaching, playing or a fan. Theres no place for it." Jacky Johnson, a spokeswoman for the Rev. Al Sharptons National Action Network, said the organization planned a protest outside Game 5 of the Clippers-Warriors series Tuesday night in Los Angeles. Sterling, a real estate owner, bought the Clippers in 1981. He is the longest-tenured owner in the NBA since Lakers owner Jerry Buss died last year. Sterling has been frequently criticized for his frugal operation of the Clippers, although in recent years he has spent heavily to add stars such as Paul and Rivers, who is in his first year as coach. Sterling also has been involved in several lawsuits over the years, including ones with accusations of discrimination. In November 2009, Sterling agreed to pay $2.73 million to settle allegations by the government that he refused to rent apartments to Hispanics and blacks and to families with children. The Justice Department sued Sterling in August 2006 for allegations of housing discrimination in the Koreatown area of Los Angeles. In March 2011, Sterling won a lawsuit against former Clippers general manager Elgin Baylor when a jury rejected the Hall of Famers claim of age discrimination and harassment. Baylor, who was 76 at the time, had sought about $2 million after claiming he was forced out of the job he had held for 22 years. The team said Baylor left on his own and a jury awarded him nothing. Sterling is a courtside fixture at Clippers home games. But he rarely visits the teams locker room at Staples Center, although he made an appearance in December 2012 after the Clippers won their 11th straight game, when he led an awkward locker room cheer.
