Tito on Papelbon: 'His stuff is not down'

CHICAGO -- Speaking before his team's series-opening game against the White Sox, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that there is nothing wrong with closer Jonathan Papelbon's stuff, and that the team will continue to search for answers why the pitcher continues to have uneven results.

 

“It’s a really good question. It’s something that, I think, we’ll probably certainly spend some time trying to have a really good answer for that. I don’t right now besides the obvious," said Francona when asked what might be leading to performances from Papelbon like the one he suffered through Sunday night at Yankee Stadium when he allowed two runs in the ninth inning.

 

"Some nights he’s given up runs. I don’t think there’s been a game all year where he hasn’t been available, which is good. I just think there’s been times where he hasn’t pitched to the same...

Julien: Seguin, Wheeler could fill for Savard
By: DJ Bean

Speaking in Thursday's conference call with the media, Bruins coach Claude Julien spoke about the current hole at center for the team's third line. With Marc Savard out with post-concussion syndrome symptoms, it is expected that David Krejci will become the first line's pivot, with Patrice Bergeron centering the second line.

 

"We've got a couple of different options here," Julien said. "I think one of the things we want to see is that maybe Tyler Seguin needs to be looked at as a center as well. We can't put him out of the equation. He's a natural centerman and was drafted as that. He's one of the guys we can look at."

 

Julien also mentioned former first-rounders Zach Hamill and Joe Colborne, as well as Ryan Spooner, all of whom remain in camp with the team.

 

"To be honest with you, I'd still like to see Tyler Seguin [at center] again, seeing now that he's got a few games under...
