Revs' Twellman retires from concussion

FOXBORO — New England Revolution star forward Taylor Twellman announced his retirement Wednesday afternoon at Gillette Stadium due to lingering effects from a serious concussion and neck injury in August 2008.

 

"Today is hard," the 30-year-old Twellman said. "It's unfortunate to lose your career to injury." 

 

Twellman was injured on Aug. 30, 2008, in a game against the Los Angeles Galaxy and was limited to just two games in 2009 and did not play this past season. 

 

"I hate the fact that my career has ended because of a brain injury but I have the chance to educate parents and children on concussions," Twellman said. 

 

Twellman, with 109 goals in eight seasons, retires as the leading goal-scorer in Revolution history and was a team leader on a club that made four MLS Cup title games, losing all four. Twellman, a U.S. soccer icon,...

Beltre declines $10 million option

As he suggested would be the case during the 2010 season, Adrian Beltre has declined his $10 million player option for '11 with the Red Sox, instead electing free agency. The 31-year-old Beltre, who hit .321 with 28 home runs, 102 RBI and a career-high 49 doubles, saw his option bump up from $5 million to $10 million in his last game of the season, having eclipsed the 640 plate appearances that kicked in the option's increase. 

 

Regarding the opportunity to double the player option, Beltre told WEEI.com that he didn't view it as a big deal. “That number was set because I had done it before I had been close to that number for a lot of years. Since the season started I never thought about numbers. I never really thought about it,” he said on Sept. 21. “It shows I wasn’t hurt,...

Milbury on D&H: Rask could help in long run

NESN and NBC Sports hockey analyst Mike Milbury made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday to talk about the Bruins and league news.

 

Most of the discussion focused on the Bruins' goaltending situation, with Tim Thomas handling the bulk of duties while promising youngster Tuukka Rask sits. Said Milbury: "It's a happy problem, but you wonder what goes on in the mind of Tuukka Rask under these circumstances. I was talking to Kelly Hrudey last week, the Hockey Night in Canada analyst with me, and he said, 'He may not know it, but this could be the best thing to happen to Rask. He's got to earn that right to be called the No. 1. It's not always easy and it's not always a given.' And he's right. I'm sure Tuukka Rask doesn't really look at it that way, but in some ways, it's not a bad thought. Rask has to continue to compete. It keeps him sharp. The question is, When does he get the chance to go again?"

Report: Jets pass on Moss, deny meeting

According to a New York Daily News report, the Jets will not put in a claim for Randy Moss by Wednesday's 4 p.m. deadline. Gary Myers writes that a league source indicated the team will not attempt to claim Moss nor Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman.

 

Earlier Wednesday, the team denied a radio report of a meeting between Moss and the Jets in New Jersey. "There has been no contact with Moss or his agent," a team spokesman said. "Zero."

 

It would be tampering for a team to contact Moss while he is on waivers.
