Thomas: Hockey not important right now
By: WEEI

Bruins goalie Tim Thomas published two posts on his Facebook wall Saturday night, both linking to predicted world economic downturns. The first, which was re-posted after initially being removed, led into the link by saying, "See why hockey's just not that important right now?" 

The first post, which was originally put up at 7:59 p.m., deleted and then re-posted at approximately 30 minutes later, linked to an article in 'The Blaze,' entitled, "Former Hedge Funder’s Fearful Forecast: We're Looking at 'The Biggest Economic Shock the World Has Ever Seen' & There's Nothing We Can Do to Stop It." (To see the article, click here.)

Thomas' second post,...

Doc: 'There's a better game in us'

WALTHAM -- Despite winning Game 3 against the Heat Friday night decisively, 101-91, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Saturday that he feels his team can and needs to raise their level of play for Game 4 and the rest of the series if they're to beat LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Heat. 

Rivers was not pleased that his team allowed James to score 16 points in the first quarter, one in which Miami finished with 28 points. The Celtics also allowed the Heat to score 28 points in the fourth quarter as the Heat outscored Boston, 28-16, in making a late charge that fell short. 

"In the first quarter I thought we were poor defensively," Rivers said. "In the fourth quarter, we were poor, defensively. That's the point I'm making. We played well but there's a better game in us. And we know it, we'll see it on film [in Sunday shootaround before Game 4] and we have to do it."

Rivers and the Celtics players were mandated by...

Punto, Doubront lead Sox out of last-place

The Red Sox climbed out of last-place for the first time this season, improving to three games above .500 with a 7-4 win over the Blue Jays Saturday at Rogers Centre in Toronto.

Leading the charge for the Sox was Nick Punto, whose three hits were one more than he had in the entire month of May. Included in Punto's offensive production was the visitors' only home run of the game, a solo shot in the ninth that punctuated the final score.

Earning the win was Red Sox' starter Felix Doubront, whose ERA stands at 3.75 after allowing three runs over 6 1/3 innings. The left finished throwing 101 pitches (68 strikes), giving up seven hits (including two home runs), while striking out seven and walking one. Doubront was staked to an early lead thanks to the Red Sox' four-run second inning.

Matt Albers, Andrew Miller, Vicente Padilla and Alfredo Aceves came on in relief to finish off the win for the Sox. Aceves pitched a perfect ninth for his 14th save...

Pedroia tests thumb with batting practice

Dustin Pedroia took batting practice for the first time since being sidelined with a slightly torn muscle in the adductor muscle in his right thumb, Saturday at Rogers Centre in Toronto. 

The plan is to evaluate how much swelling occurs after Saturday's batting practice session, and if the thumb is deemed OK Pedroia will conduct another round of BP Sunday. 

The hope since an MRI showed the tear was for Pedroia to be in position to re-evaluated during Monday's off-day, with the chance of the second baseman returning to the Red Sox' lineup Tuesday against Baltimore.

While swing a bat Pedroia will wear a brace molded for his hand in the position it forms to when grabbing a bat. It also possesses a strip of foam material on the inside to cushion impact.

Pedroia initially injured the thumb on May 2 while fouling off a Ryan Cook pitch. X-rays after that game against Oakland showed no damage, but the subsequent MRI almost three...

Youkilis: 'A lot of people hate'

Talking to MLB.com prior to the Red Sox' series-opening game against the Blue Jays, Red Sox infielder Kevin Youkilis said he is unfazed by the recent rumors suggesting he may be traded.

"You could get traded at any time," Youkilis said. "You're not better than the game. If you were better than the game, you would never be able to be traded. It's part of the business."

Youkilis appeared upset regarding the reaction of some toward him this season, while also going out of his way to praise the Red Sox fans.

"You can't worry about it. A lot of people hate and said some things around here. What are you going to do?" Youkilis said. "People have been hating here for a long time. And it's not fans. It's other people that hate all the time. What are you going to do? One day you're...
