Remy on D&C: Sox not sellers at deadline

NESN Red Sox analyst and former second baseman Jerry Remy joined Dennis & Callahan on Wednesday morning to address the team's mindset heading into the trade deadline.

"They're letting things play out here in these next few weeks before the deadline to see where they are," Remy said. "I don't expect them to be sellers. With the second wild card they have a chance, and I think, if anything, they may try to improve the ballclub. I think they've been waiting all this time to get guys back to see how this team produces with everybody that they've got. I think they believe that they can make a move. I honestly believe they can do it.

"You can't just keep having guys like [David] Ortiz go on the DL, [Dustin] Pedroia go on the DL and expect to be consistent. That's been the problem. I have not heard about any big deals. Obviously Ben [Cherington] is working behind the scenes to improve the ballclub, but sellers? I don't think they'...

Kapler on D&C: Lester will return to form

Former Red Sox outfielder Gabe Kapler joined Dennis & Callahan on Wednesday morning and took an optimist's approach toward the first-half struggles of starting pitchers Josh Beckett and Jon Lester.

"There's no way around it. It's not a pretty picture," Kapler said. "That performance in the first half of the season if you ask Jon, you ask Josh, they're not going to be comfortable with their performance. They're not going to be proud of what [was] going on in the first half of the season.

"It probably bodes well because, like I said, you always go back to track record. If the guy is struggling for that long a period of time, he's got a consistent track record and he hasn't lost his stuff, which neither one of those guys have, the expectation is that there's a lot of success right around the corner. You just try to be as patient as you can. You keep running them out there. Those guys are quality starters. You...

Mashup: Pete Rose gets reality show on TLC

Major League Baseball career hits leader Pete Rose is filming a reality show for TLC. The show will focus on the 71-year-old Rose and his fiancee, a model who is about half his age. According to Entertainment Weekly, the show has a working title of "Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family Project."

"It's not going to be classless," Rose insisted. "It seems like a lot of reality shows aren't really reality, but our reality show is going to be funny, entertaining and real."

Rose, banned from baseball after gambling on games when he served as manager of the Reds, remains out of the Hall of Fame, but he hopes his call will come some day.

“If the commissioner [Bud Selig] ever finds it in its heart to give me a second chance, I’m sure that we’ll address that,” Rose said. “But if I ever make the Hall of Fame, I’ll be the happiest guy in the world because I understand what it means. But I...

C's will use mid-level exception on Terry

LAS VEGAS -- The Celtics tried to work a sign-and-trade deal for free agent guard Jason Terry, but they will instead use the mid-level exception to sign Terry, team president Danny Ainge said. A deal should be announced soon, possibly as early as Wednesday.

The Mavericks forced the C's hand with the signing of O.J. Mayo, but pulling off a deal became a daunting task when the Mavs elected to use their cap space on a number of free agents including Chris Kaman and Elton Brand. The Celtics tried to get a third team involved to facilitate the deal but couldn't find a taker.

With Terry accepting the mid-level, the capped-out C's will have to swing a sign-and-trade for another guard, such as Courtney Lee. That may prove even more difficult as the Celtics have few assets for such a maneuver. The Rockets landed Jeremy Lin on Tuesday night and will likely extend an offer sheet to restricted free agent center Omer Asik by the end of the week.

Celts continue to roll with win over Bulls

LAS VEGAS -- The Celtics summer league team continued its winning ways, holding off a late Chicago rally with a 79-74 win over the Bulls on Tuesday night. E'Twaun Moore led the way with 25 points, including 14 in the first half when the C's went on a 21-2 run to take control of the game.

Dionte Christmas also continued to impress with 18 points, and Jamar Smith heated up with 11 points in the first half. Both players have drawn praise from members of the team's hierarchy throughout summer league.

Jared Sullinger was matched up against former Celtic Leon Powe. Despite shooting 3-for-15 and scoring just seven points, Sullinger grabbed 13 rebounds, including five on the offensive glass. JaJuan Johnson also had a big night on the glass with 12 rebounds.

Second-round pick Kris Joseph hyperextended his left knee in the first half and did not return for the second. Sean Williams (ankle) also didn't play.
