NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning, following the Sox' 18-3 loss to the Rangers on Tuesday night at Fenway Park.
"This Texas lineup is as good as you're going to see," Remy said. "We saw the Tigers early in the season and they were very tough, but this Texas lineup, there are absolutely no holes in it at all. They showed you last night, if you don't bring your 'A' game to the mound you're going to be in big, big trouble."
Kevin Youkilis struck out in all four of his at-bats Tuesday, in his first game since manager Bobby Valentine made some controversial comments about the third baseman before apologizing. Valentine had questioned Youkilis' mental and physical commitment.
"My take is it was a bad choice of words. I think that Valentine now realizes that," Remy said. "The guy's been away from it a long time, and you've got a learning...
According to a report from Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski Wednesday morning, the Celtics had made a deal at the trade deadline last month to send Ray Allen to the Grizzlies for O.J. Mayo and a draft pick, and Doc Rivers called Allen to let him know he was traded. After about 20 minutes, Rivers called back to say the deal was off.
The report also revealed that there were discussions on a deal to send Paul Pierce to the Nets for Mehmet Okur's expiring contract and a lottery pick, but those talks did not lead to an agreement.
The story, which credits league sources for the information, also indicated Allen isn't thrilled with his new role off the bench but will handle the situation as a professional.
Allen missed Tuesday night's loss to the Knicks with a sore right ankle. It was the fifth...
Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen returned Tuesday from a five-game team suspension for his comments praising Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and he remained apologetic.
"I put myself on probation … me, nobody else," Guillen said. "It's probation about growing up and being better, and be careful to not trust too many people. That was my problem."
There were no demonstrations against Guillen prior to the Marlins' 5-2 victory over the Cubs, which drew a season-low 24,544 to Marlins Park in Miami.
There was one noticeable heckler during the game, but Guillen said he heard only supportive comments.
"Everything was pretty nice," he said. "It made my day a little easier. I appreciate the way people were, not just with me but with the team."

Reliever Mark Melancon failed to retire any of the six batters he faced and allowed three home runs in the process, becoming just the eighth pitcher since 1918 to give up three home runs without recording an out in a game. He has allowed runs in all four games he's pitched for the Sox, becoming the first reliever in team history to give up runs in each of his first four contests (each of one inning or less) with the club.
With Melancon's ERA sitting at 49.50, manager Bobby Valentine said that the team could not dismiss the possibility of sending the right-hander -- acquired in a trade with the Astros this offseason -- to the minors. Melancon does have an option left.
“At this time, you have to consider everything,” Valentine said. “He’s really concerned. I’m very concerned, obviously. He’s not getting the swing and miss. It seems like he’s a little –– he’s searching right now and so are we...
