Sox call up Iglesias, option Tazawa

With Kevin Youkilis out for a third straight game due to a stiff back, the Red Sox called up shortstop Jose Iglesias from Triple-A Pawtucket. He will be activated for Tuesday's game. In order to create a spot for him on the big league roster, right-hander Junichi Tazawa will be optioned back to the PawSox.

Iglesias is hitting .200 with a .274 OBP, .212 slugging mark and one double in 85 at-bats. However, Sox officials suggest that his performance at the plate has reflected some of the progress he showed during spring training, foremost better pitch recognition and an improved ability to drive the ball, and suggest that he has endured some bad luck that have skewed his April numbers.

Will Middlebrooks (hitting .348 with a .396 OBP, .708 slugging mark and nine homers in 23 games) might have been considered for a call-up, but he tweaked his thumb slightly on a swing over the weekend. The 23-year-old had Monday off, and his health will be re-evaluated...

Harbaugh: 'Patriots earned every victory'
By: DJ Bean

Ravens coach John Harbaugh issued the following statement Tuesday to explain his comments about the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick.  

“While on the 98 Rock show this morning to talk about the run to honor O.J. Brigance and raise funds for ALS research, I answered a question about playing within the rules and referred to the perception that the Super Bowl championships won by the Patriots and Saints have a stain. My reference was to the perception out there that came as the result of the league’s actions. 

“I could have been more clear that I was referring to those viewpoints. I totally believe that the Patriot and Saint coaches and players earned those championships. Bill (Belichick) and Sean (Payton) both know that. 

“There has been some distortion about what I said. 

“The original tweet indicated I pointed the finger at Bill Belichick and mentioned Bill’s name. I did not. I...

Harbaugh clarifies comments on BB, Pats

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has backtracked from comments he made Tuesday morning regarding the Patriots and possibly bending the rules. In an interview with a Baltimore radio station on Tuesday morning, Harbaugh sounded like he was taking a shot at New England.

“In the end everything is brought before the light of day when it’s all said and done. ... So what happens is, even the thing in New England and the thing ... No matter whether those things had any impact on whether they won their championships or not, they got asterisks now. It’s been stained. So to me it’s never worth it.

“You’ve got to figure out ways to use the rules to your advantage, you’ve got to figure out ways to make the most of everything, we’ve got new work rules here as far as what we can do and what we can’t do with our players, we’re going to make the most of it and what we’re finding is, man, in a...

BC's top rusher Harris dismissed from team

Boston College running back Montel Harris, who was trying to fight back from a knee injury after being granted another year of eligibility, was dismissed from the team, the school announced Tuesday.

"Montel Harris has been permanently dismissed from our football team due to a repeated violation of team rules," coach Frank Spaziani said in a statement. "We are grateful for his contributions the past four seasons and will support him in completing his degree requirements and in his future pursuits."

Harris is BC’s all-time rushing leader, with 3,735 yards on 787 carries. He also has scored 27 touchdowns. He was the preseason ACC Player of the Year last year but missed the first three games of the season following knee surgery and then re-injured the knee in his second game back.

Smith: Hawks plan to pressure Bradley

ATLANTA -- There's no mystery what the Hawks will try to do to Avery Bradley in Game 2 with Rajon Rondo serving his one-game suspension.

"Do what he does to us," Hawks' forward Josh Smith said. "He’s one of the great defenders in this league at a young age. Just see if he likes it a little bit, picking him up fullcourt, turning him a little bit and making it hard for him to initiate their offense."

The Celtics have anticipated that and plan to use Paul Pierce to help relieve pressure in the backcourt. There's no doubt that not having Rondo alters the dynamic for the Celtics. 

"It changes a lot for them," Smith said. "He’s the distributor on their team. He gets them in a lot of their sets. Without him, he’s the head of the snake. We’re going to try and take advantage of that tonight. Knowing they’re still a capable team without him, but their chances of winning are at a...
