Red Sox outfielder Ryan Kalish, in a series of entries on his twitter feed, acknowledged that he is “feeling pretty down” about the right shoulder surgery that he will undergo next week in California, which is expected to keep him out for at least spring training and the beginning months of the 2013 season.
The procedure will be the third surgery that Kalish has required in the span of roughly 16 months, following surgery to repair a bulging disc in his neck in Sept. 2011 and surgery on a torn labrum in his left (throwing) shoulder in Dec. 2011. Those two injuries caused Kalish to miss almost all of the 2011 season before his year-ending procedures, and the recovery and rehab process left him feeling as if he was a shell of himself in 2012 (in part...
The Celtics blew a 27-point first-half lead, eventually dropping a double-overtime, 123-111 loss to the Hawks in Atlanta. It was the Celts’ sixth-straight defeat.
According to Celtics’ play-by-play announcer Sean Grande the C’s had won 153 straight games when leading by more than 19 points, having last blown a lead as much as 27 points on Dec. 5, 2003 in Phoenix.
The Celts, who had jumped out to a 29-10 lead after one quarter, finally succumbed to the affects of playing back-to-back games, being out-scored, 16-4, in the second overtime. The visitors were also outscored 21-2 to start the third quarter.
“I thought it changed once we put the starters in with about five minutes left in the second quarter,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters after the game, adding, “I told our guys you can’t win without humility. … We started breaking rules you can’t break in grade school.”
Both Kevin Garnett and Jared Sullinger fouled...

Tuukka Rask has started all four games and stopped 24 of 26 shots on the night to record his third win.

According to a major league source, the Red Sox have reached an agreement on a minor league deal with outfielder Ryan Sweeney. Sweeney, who turns 28 next month, spent 2012 with the Red Sox after being acquired from the A’s in a trade along with right-hander Andrew Bailey for outfielder Josh Reddick and minor leaguers Miles Head and Raul Alcantara.
Sweeney hit .260 with a .303 OBP, .373 slugging mark and .675 OPS in 63 games, with his season coming to a sudden halt on July 30 when he broke his hand (requiring season-ending surgery) by punching a clubhouse door at Fenway Park.. However, his production diminished considerably after he suffered a...
According to the NFL, Ravens safety Bernard Pollard has been fined $15,250 for his third-quarter hit on Patriots’ wide receiver Wes Welker during Baltimore’s win over the Pats in the AFC Championship Game.
Earlier in the day, Pollard had told reporters he wasn’t fined for any of the hits he delivered in last Sunday’s AFC title game against the Patriots.
The controversial defensive back, who has been responsible for tackles that have injured quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski in the past, delivered a nasty shot to the head of New England running back Stevan Ridley in the fourth quarter, one that sidelined Ridley for the rest of the game.
After the game, Pollard explained the hit on Ridley, saying it was just part of the game.
“He got loose and for me as a safety, and for us as safeties, our job is...
