BC's Kuechly an AP All-American

Boston College sophomore linebacker Luke Kuechly was named to The Associated Press All-America first team on Tuesday. Kuechly is the 10th consensus first-team All-American (FWAA, AFCA, Walter Camp and AP) in BC history and the first since defensive back Jamie Silva in 2007.

Stark: Ellsbury trade a 'possibility'

Jayson Stark of ESPN called into the Dale and Holley show on Tuesday to discuss the Phillies' signing of Cliff Lee and what that means for the Yankees and the Red Sox. 

 

With Lee now heading to Philadelphia with a five-year, $120 million deal the Phillies have an abundance of starting pitching at a high price. Sports Illustrated reported on Tuesday that the Red Sox and Phillies had a deal in place for Joe Blanton. Stark was asked if Blanton would make sense for the Red Sox.

 

"Not particularly," said Stark of Blanton, who has two years and $17 million left on his contract. "I think the Red Sox were willing yesterday to do anything to help the Phillies make this [Lee] deal happen. They would have been a very accommodating trade partner. Joe Blanton doesn't fit for them. Think about the last time Joe Blanton set foot in Fenway Park. Daniel Nava can tell you all about it. I don't see Joe Blanton as an AL...

Sox pursued Martin as insurance option

According to a source familiar with the discussions, the Red Sox had shown interest in free agent catcher Russell Martin, but only on a deal that featured a low guaranteed salary. The club saw the two-time All-Star -- whose batting average and OPS have declined in each of the last three seasons -- as a potential insurance option at catcher in case either Jarrod Saltalamacchia or Jason Varitek was injured.

 

Martin, who hit .248/.347/.322/.669 last year, agreed to a one-year deal with the Yankees on Tuesday. He became a free agent earlier this month when the Dodgers declined to tender the catcher a contract.

Shaq on calf: 'Juices getting back up there'

WALTHAM -- Shaquille O'Neal said before Tuesday's practice that his sore right calf is "getting better" and is optimistic that he will be ready for Wednesday night's game at Madison Square Garden against Amare Stoudemire and the New York Knicks. 

 

"I'm doing better," said O'Neal, who worked out on the side and in the weight room Tuesday but did not practice. "My calf juices are getting back up there. I'll be alright."

 

Doc Rivers said that he would see how O'Neal comes through Tuesday's practice before making a determination on whether to play him Wednesday night against a revitalized Knicks team that has won eight straight and stands just four games behind the 19-4 Celtics in the Atlantic Division. O'Neal has missed the last two games with the calf injury.
