Appearing with Dennis & Callahan on Wednesday morning, the morning after the Red Sox moved over .500 for the first time this season, team president and CEO Larry Lucchino talked about the club's recent improvement, Bobby Valentine's coaching approach, and why the team elected not to sign Roy Oswalt.
Lucchino also extended an invitation to Dennis & Callahan's own Jon Meterparel to handle Fenway Park PA announcer duties Thursday and become a candidate to replace the late Carl Beane.
Boston, which has been struggling throughout the young season, is last in the AL East with a 25-24 record. But after beating Detroit on Tuesday night, the Red Sox are over .500 and only 3 1/2 games of first place.
"To finally get over .500 is something we should celebrate," he said. "I'm really pleased with the way the team is coming together."
Lucchino said the Red Sox might still encounter some difficulties as...
Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee responded Tuesday to criticism from Curt Schilling, who claimed the governor's comments about the struggles of Schilling's video game company contributed to its demise.
Schilling claimed that an investor pulled out upon hearing Chafee say that the state was working to keep 38 Studios afloat.
"The governor is not operating in the best interest of the company by any stretch, or the taxpayer, or the state," Schilling said in a Providence Journal story that appeared Monday. "We're trying to save this company and we're working 24/7. The public commentary has been as big a piece of what's happening to us as anything out there."
Chafee fired back at a Tuesday press conference at the State House.
"An investor's not going to be scared away by some governor's comments," he said. "It just defies logic."
Chafee also insisted that the problems at 38 Studios were...
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady checked in with Dennis & Callahan on Wednesday morning and talked about the healing process after the team's devastating loss to the Giants in the Super Bowl.
"I think that's the fun part about starting the OTA process is you really start looking forward at that point," said Brady, who will take part in the Best Buddies Challenge charity bike ride this weekend. "For all of us, you suffer tough ends to seasons. Unless you win it all, it's a tough end to the season. You've got those months in there where really what you do is you think about the past and you think about what you can do better in your training. Once you start practicing, it's a different team. We've got a different group of guys, a different mix of talents, and we've got to see what we can put on the field.
"It's fun getting back to...
Terrell Owens had hopes of returning to the NFL, but now the 38-year-old wide receiver is not even playing in the Indoor Football League following his release from the Allen (Texas) Wranglers. Owens, who caught 35 passes for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns in eight games this season, told the Wranglers he would not play in two upcoming away games and then missed an appearance at a children's hospital, the team said. That led to his departure from the squad, as both a player and part-owner.
"It is impossible to maintain a player when even our fans notice and comment on a player's lack of effort both on and off the field," Wranglers owner Jon Frankel said in a statement on the team's website. "We need to do what is best for this team, our fans and this community."
Added team president and co-owner Tommy Benizio: "It is difficult to look other players on this team in the eyes and tell them that being a team player is...
Dustin Pedroia said after the Red Sox' 6-3 win over the Tigers Tuesday night at Fenway Park that he has been diagnosed with having a slight tear in the adductor muscle in his right thumb. The second baseman explained the injury first occurred while hitting three weeks ago, and was aggravated during Monday's game.
The most recent diagnosis came after Dr. Donald Sheridan, whom performed surgery on Pedroia's hamate bone following the 2007 season, viewed an MRI of the thumb after the team and player sought a second opinion.
Pedroia and the Red Sox will wait until Wednesday to determine if a trip to the 15-day disabled list is needed, with the 28-year-old saying the plan was for him to see how much the swelling went down and then gauging if he could hit with a specially-made brace. Pedroia surmised that if he wasn't able to play, or if it was decided that continued activity would risk further damage, the recovery time would be between 3-4 weeks....
