RJ's daughter recovering from accident
By: DJ Bean

Bridget Johnson, the 10-year-old daughter of Red Sox first base coach Ron Johnson, is currently recovering from a near-death experience last Sunday. Bridget's leg was severed when she was hit by a car while horseback riding in the family's home town of Nashville, Tenn. She remained in intensive care for five days before being moved into a private room at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, where the family has stayed.

 

Though the knee was severed at the knee immediately, a local came to Bridget's aid and saved her from bleeding out. The leg was stitched back to her body and doctors are awaiting whether her body can handle it. According to NewsChannel 5 in Tennessee, to whom Johnson spoke of the horrific accident, doctors did detect a pulse following the re-attachment but are unsure of whether or not it will adhere to the body.

Morrow falls one out shy of no-no
By: DJ Bean

Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow became the second pitcher this season to have a no-hit bid broken up with two men out in the ninth inning Sunday when Rays third baseman Evan Longoria reached on an infield single. Morrow came back to strike out Dan Johnson to end the game, capping an electrifying 17-strikeout performance in a 1-0 Blue Jays win.

 

Morrow, who improved to 9-6 with the victory, threw 137 pitches on the day and walked two batters. It was the first complete game of the 26-year-old's career. Prior to Sunday, the deepest Morrow had pitched into a game this season was eight innings, a feat accomplished in a 5-0 victory over the Cardinals on June 24.

 

The one-hitter was the 19th in Blue Jays history. There have been five no-hitters in the majors this season, including two perfect games. In coming one out shy, Morrow joins Tigers starter Armando Galarraga as the only pitchers to do so this season. Galarraga was...

Delgado: I didn't sign to 'embarrass myself'
By: DJ Bean

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- Newly signed first baseman Carlos Delgado wrapped up his first workout as a member of the Red Sox organization Sunday. After stretching out along the third baseline, Delgado and Red Sox first base prospect Lars Anderson took ground balls at first base. Delgado then fielded some more ground balls from his knees, followed by questions from onlooking reporters.

 

Coming off two hip surgeries, the 38-year-old Delgado signed a minor league deal on Saturday and will eventually join a Red Sox team that has been bitten quite badly by the injury bug. Anticipated to split time with Mike Lowell at first base, Delgado stressed that he himself feels healthy enough to make a difference down the stretch.

 

"I'm not going to come here to embarrass myself," Delgado said. "I wasn't going to call anybody and say I'm ready to work out if I couldn't run, if I couldn't run the bases, if I couldn't change...

Report: Pats have 'strong' interest in Schobel

The Patriots have "strong" interest in pass rusher Aaron Schobel, but the former Bill is seeking "big" money, according to Comast's Mike Giardi. (Giardi quotes a source as saying Schobel's situation isn't like that of Junior Seau, who a contract that was below market value to come out of retirement and play for New England.) Schobel, who became available last week when he was released by Buffalo, is one of the best pass rushers currently available — the 32-year-old had 78 sacks over the last nine years with the Bills.
