Scutaro: 'Feel good', ready to be starting SS

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Marco Scutaro arrived Friday morning in the Red Sox clubhouse and pronounced himself healthy and ready to assume the starting shortstop job that manager Terry Francona said was his in January. Scutaro battled through neck, elbow and shoulder injuries in 2010 — his first season in Boston. 

 

"It took a while till my shoulder felt better, after three weeks probably," said Scutaro, who added he was able to avoid surgery. "I had to get all the muscles around the rotator cuff. It feels good. I can move it now." 

 

Scutaro said he rehabbed his left elbow, he battled through the right shoulder and rotator cuff injury for the second half of 2010. Even with all the injuries, Scutaro managed to hit .275 in 150 games, with 11 homers and 56 RBIs. Scutaro also said he was in Miami and was watching TV when Francona called to inform him he was the starting shortstop for 2011....

Mashup: Bama fan arrested in tree poisoning

A University of Alabama fan was arrested early Thursday for the poisoning of trees where Auburn fans celebrate big wins. Harvey Updyke Jr., 62, was charged with one count of criminal mischief after making two phone calls — including one to a local sports radio talk show — claiming responsibility. However, he told police he did not actually commit the crime.

 

According to a report in the Mobile (Ala.) Press-Register, Updyke's family said the suspect's grandchildren had to be pulled out of school because they are receiving death threats.

 

Elsewhere, a high school wrestler in Iowa defaulted in his opening-round match of the state tournament rather than face a girl, saying it was "a matter of conscience and faith" to pass on the 112-pound match.

Bruins blow past Islanders to snap skid
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins broke a three-game losing streak by turning on the offense against a pair of Islanders goaltenders in a 6-3 victory at Nassau Coliseum on Thursday night. 

 

Tyler Seguin had his third multi-point game of the season, as he set up Blake Wheeler's goal to open the scoring 55 seconds into the contest and added his 10th goal of the season in the second period. Wheeler and David Krejci also had multi-point nights with a goal and an assist apiece. Mark Recchi, Gregory Campbell, and Milan Lucic also scored for the Bruins. Lucic now has 24 goals on the season, which leads the team. 

 

After the Bruins jumped out to a 4-0 lead, New York's John Tavares scored the first of his two goals on the game in a back-and-forth second period. Josh Bailey scored the other Islanders goal. 

 

Islanders starter Nathan Lawson was pulled after Seguin's goal made it 5-1, and Al Montoya made 13 saves on 14...
