Beckett: 'All that time I missed, that hurt us'

BALTIMORE -- Speaking prior to the Red Sox' game with the Orioles at Camden Yards Wednesday night, Josh Beckett said that his absence absolutely contributed to where the Sox find themselves in the standings. "Absolutely," the pitcher said. "All that time I missed, that hurt us."

 

Beckett also explained why he didn't speak to the media following the Red Sox' 5-2 loss to Baltimore Tuesday night, marking the first time in his Sox' career that he hasn't answered questions following a start. "I had stuff to do. Stuff to take care of," he said. "I couldn't put it into words."

 

Beckett said he felt like he made "progress" with his seven-inning outing Tuesday night, in which he allowed three runs (2 earned), and seven hits while striking out five and walking one. He did, however, say the situation with the team's playoff hopes and his up and down performances are "...

Lineups: Scutaro remains at shortstop

BALTIMORE -- One day after he committed a game-changing throwing error that some teammates felt was influenced by the state of his injured rotator cuff, Marco Scutaro remains in the Red Sox lineup as the leadoff hitter and shortstop. Ryan Kalish, who had Tuesday off against left-hander Brian Matusz, will return to the lineup and bat ninth against Orioles starter Jake Arrieta.

 

Jon Lester, who is 12-0 with a 2.00 ERA in 15 career starts against the Orioles, will look to snap the Red Sox' three-game losing streak. For matchup information, click here. For complete team coverage, visit WEEI.com/redsox.

Delonte West to return to Celtics

The Celtics have announced they have agreed to terms with free agent guard Deltone West have agreed to a contract. Terms of the deal are not yet known.

 

The 24th overall pick of the 2004 draft, West played three seasons for the Celtics before being shipped to Seattle as part of the Ray Allen deal. West spent half of the 2007-08 season with Seattle before being traded to the Cavaliers, where he spent two and a half seasons. He was dealt to the Timberwolves for a draft pick in July and was waived by the club a week later.

 

West will be suspended for the first 10 games of the 2010-11 season for pleading guilty to a gun charge. 

 

The Boston Herald was first to report the agreement.

Ochocinco calling his shot vs. Pats?

Chad Ochocinco has never been the shy, retiring type, and what he says he has planned for the regular-season opener against the Patriots is no exception.

Ochocinco said Tuesday on Twitter that if he scores a touchdown against the Patriots on Sept. 12 at Gillette Stadium, he's going to take one of the muskets from the Minutemen — who traditionally stand in the end zone each game and fire their muskets after each New England touchdown — and fire it, "as they do when the [Patriots] score" he wrote.

Ochocinco has traditionally engaged in some offbeat end zone celebrations, including jumping into the stands at Lambeau Field, "proposing" to a cheerleader and giving CPR to the football after a touchdown.

Herzlich aims to play in BC opener

Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich is back practicing as he tries to battle back from his broken foot, and it's possible the senior standout could see some action in Saturday afternoon's season-opener vs. Weber State at Alumni Stadium.

 

"He has decided he's going to push on with it," BC coach Frank Spaziani said Wednesday on the weekly ACC Football Coaches Teleconference. "He just started out there [practicing] Saturday for the first time, and Sunday a little bit. Of course, we were off Monday. Yesterday he was out there, did a little bit more. As you could imagine, not having played football in I don't know how many days … and coming back from the cancer and the broken bone, he's — rusty is not the right adjective — he's behind a little bit. But he's working hard.

 

"Never put anything past him. Hopefully, we can get him in the game this week."

The Dana-Farber Genetics and Prevention Program offers advanced genetic tests to determine whether individuals are at risk for inherited forms of cancer. Dr. Garber says, “A visit to the Cancer Genetics and Prevention Clinic usually includes time with both a physician and a genetic counselor, both of whom have expertise in all forms of inherited cancer syndromes. We educate patients about cancer risk and its implications for them and their family members. Working with referring physicians, we design individualized programs to monitor for the earliest signs of cancer — diagnosing if it occurs, and, in many cases, preventing it from arising.”
