Troy Brown voted into Pats Hall of Fame

The Patriots announced Monday that wide receiver and return man Troy Brown has been voted by fans as the 18th player and 19th member to enter the Patriots Hall of Fame. Brown beat out fellow finalists Fred Marion and Bill Parcells for the honor.

According to the team, Brown earned the highest percentage of votes for any candidate, breaking last year’s record set by Drew Bledsoe. Brown joins Bledsoe as the second player to be selected by the fans into the Patriots Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility.

“Troy Brown will always be special to me, as he was my sweetheart’s favorite player during his career,” said Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft. “Clearly, a lot of Patriots fans shared her sentiment and I am proud that we will honor Troy with his induction into the Patriots Hall of Fame this fall.

“To me, Troy was the consummate Patriot who always put team goals ahead of...

Agent: Contract not part of Thomas' decision
By: DJ Bean

Speaking to the Boston Globe Monday, Tim Thomas' agent said that the veteran goaltender's decision to not play next season is not a ploy to get a contract extension or to be traded to another team. 

Thomas, 38, has one season remaining on his four-year, $20 million deal, but indicated via Facebook that he will spend the next season focusing on "friends, family and faith."

“It didn’t have anything to do with a contract or trade,” agent Bill Zito told Fluto Shinzawa. “It did not.”

Rivers on D&C: 'I've liked us in this series'

Doc Rivers joined Dennis & Callahan Monday morning, hours after the Celtics' 93-91 overtime victory over the Heat in Game 4 evened the Eastern Conference finals at two games apiece.

Rivers said the series is shaping up as he expected following a predictably slow start from the Celtics.

"I didn't feel great going into Game 1, mainly because of the seventh game in Philly, that series. But after that I felt very good about this series and about us," he said. "We knew it was going to be a hard series. We knew it was going to be a physical series. But I actually think that's who we are, so that's why I've liked us in this series."

The Celtics got off to an impressive start offensively Sunday night, scoring 61 points in the first half, but then they squandered an 18-point lead in the second half.

"I thought the second half we were looking to take quick and, in my estimation, bad jump shots," Rivers said....

Mashup: Jim Duquette set to donate kidney

Former Mets general manager Jim Duquette is scheduled to donate a kidney to his 10-year-old daughter Monday at a Baltimore hospital. Lindsey Duquette suffers from a rare kidney disease called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and has undergone dialysis treatments for 14 hours a day for over a year since going into end-stage renal failure in May 2011, when her kidneys had to be removed.

The father, a Western Massachusetts native and a cousin of Orioles executive Dan Duquette, now hosts a radio show on Sirius XM's MLB Metwork Radio and has served as a fill-in analyst on Mets radio broadcasts this season.

Doctors have said there is only a 50 percent chance Lindsey's body will accept the new kidney, but the family is taking a positive approach.

"This has been a tough road, so we're realistic," Jim Duquette told The Baltimore Sun. "But we're hoping this will finally be the time life gets better for our little girl."...
