Remy on D&C: Aceves can handle closing

NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy made his first weekly appearance of the 2012 season Wednesday morning on Dennis & Callahan, one day before the Sox open the regular season with a game against the Tigers in Detroit.

The big news this week is the thumb injury to Andrew Bailey that will require surgery and knock the closer out of action for 3-4 months. It's expected that the Sox will go with Alfredo Aceves or Mark Melancon to finish games, although they have converted setup man Daniel Bard in the rotation.

"I've got a feeling [Aceves] can get the job done," Remy said. "Last year, to me, was probably the most valuable pitcher on the team. I think he's got the stuff to be able to get the job done. He certainly has the mentality to get the job done. The problem is the catchers do have to catch him. They never know what he's going to throw. He throws whatever he wants. So, that could be an issue, too, come late in the game. I have...

Lester: Not being included in elite 'frustrating'

Jon Lester, who on Thursday is scheduled to make his second straight Opening Day start for the Red Sox, talked to WEEI.com about his frustration regarding how he is perceived among the elite pitchers in the game.

Lester is one of three pitchers who has won 15 or more games in each of the past four seasons, joining CC Sabathia and Roy Halladay. Yet in some ways, the pitcher feels that such consistent performances have been viewed as unsatisfactory.

“I think people expect me every year to go out and win 20 games, and if I don’t do that, it’s a bad season. I don’t think that I get a lot of the credit of the seasons that I have put together,” Lester said. “It’s obviously a nice expectation to have, but at the same time, when people talk about the elite pitchers in the game,...

Mashup: Milbury sorry for blasting Crosby

NBC hockey analyst Mike Milbury apologized Tuesday for calling Penguins star Sidney Crosby "a punk" and making a sarcastic reference to his concussion problems during an interview on a Philadelphia radio station Monday and. Milbury had criticized Crosby for instigating a late-game brawl in the Penguins' loss to the Flyers on Sunday.

"In hindsight, I realize what I said was inappropriate and wrong, and I want to apologize to the Penguins organization and their fans," Milbury said.

Crosby took issue with Milbury's accusation that he started the ill will Sunday by cross checking Brayden Schenn, who retaliated a few seconds later with a cross check to the back.

"I don't really know what he's looking for -- if he's looking for attention or what. I don't know what it is," Crosby said Tuesday before leading his team past the Bruins, 5-3. "I don't have much to say there. I don't where that came from, and you can...

Julien: 'Fingers crossed' for Boychuk

Bruins coach Claude Julien said the team will have to wait until at least Wednesday to have a better idea of the left leg injury sustained by Johnny Boychuk in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins at TD Garden. 

With 13 minutes remaining in the third, Boychuk was in the offensive zone when he made a move down from the right point. He was met by Pittsburgh's Aaron Asham and their knees appeared to collide. Boychuk slumped immediately to the ice and didn't move for about two minutes while training and medical personnel tended to the Bruins defenseman. Boychuk needed assistance from teammates Chris Kelly and Brian Rolston to make it off the ice. 

"Those kind of injuries you have to let the night go by," Bruins coach Claude Julien said afterward. "Keeping our fingers crossed that it's not bad news. It's really all we can hope for." 

Boychuk limped out of the Garden under his own power. 

"He got...

Overpowered: Crosby (2g), Pens beat B's

James Neal and Sidney Crosby scored power-play goals 48 seconds apart late in the second period to lift the Penguins to a 5-3 win over the Bruins Tuesday night at TD Garden. The game itself meant little to the Bruins, who already clinched the Northeast Division title and the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference for the upcoming playoffs. 

The Bruins started backup Marty Turco in net and dressed Anton Khudobin as a backup for the first time. Tim Thomas did not dress for the first time this season. While the game meant little to the Bruins, the game was huge for the Penguins (104 points), who moved three points ahead of the Flyers for fourth place and the final home ice spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs.  

The biggest loss for the Bruins came when defenseman Johnny Boychuk's left knee collided with Aaron Asham's knee with 13 minutes left in the third. Boychuk had to be helped off the ice by teammates Chris Kelly and Brian Rolston and...
