Lineup: Sox get ready for struggling Noesi

The Red Sox will look to rebound from their Thursday night shutout loss against the Mariners and Felix Hernandez. The team faces struggling Seattle right-hander Hector Noesi, who is 2-9 with a 5.55 ERA. The Sox have little experience against Noesi, who was acquired from the Yankees this offseason.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia will clean up and be behind the plate for Aaron Cook, who claimed his first Red Sox win on Sunday against the Braves. For complete batter vs. pitcher histories, click here. For comprehensive team coverage, visit weei.com/redsox.

Hornets pick Davis first overall in NBA draft

As expected, Kentucky forward Anthony Davis was the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft on Thursday night, going first overall to the New Orleans Hornets. The 6-foot-10, 220-pound Davis, who won a national championship in his only year at Kentucky, topped Division I with 4.7 blocks per game, and also led the Wildcats with 14.2 points per game. He also was among the national leaders in rebounding (10.4) and double-doubles (20).

Bard: Can't worry about returning to Red Sox

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- Speaking before the Pawtucket Red Sox' game against the Charlotte Knights Thursday night at McCoy stadium, reliever Daniel Bard admitted that he had initially been distracted by the rush to return to the major leagues in his initial Triple-A outings.

"That's been my main focus, to take my focus off of trying to get back to Boston because that's pretty counterproductive," he said. "If I go out there every time I pitch and all I'm thinking is, 'OK, pitch good so I can be back with the big league team,' that's not going to work. I think that's actually what happened in some of my not-so-good outings. I've realized my focus has to be to get better every day and be the best pitcher for this team, right now, in Pawtucket, that I can be. If I can take care of that, the rest will take care of itself."

Bard is coming off of perhaps his best outing since joining the PawSox, pitching a flawless inning against the Knights...

Report: B's give Rask one-year deal
By: DJ Bean

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie (via twitter), the Bruins and goaltender Tuukka Rask have agreed to terms on a one-year, $3.5 million deal. Rask was set to become a restricted free agent on Sunday, the opening of free agency. 

Last season, Rask was limited to 22 starts due to an abdomen/groin injury suffered in March. He posted an 11-8-3 record with a 2.05 goals-against average and .929 save percentage. He is expected to be the team's No. 1 goalie next season, with Anton Khudobin serving as the backup. 

In order to be an unrestricted free agent, a player must be either 27 years of age or have played seven years in the league. Rask, 25, will not have met either of those benchmarks, so he will be a restricted free agent again following the coming season.

Kraft: I think we need an NFL team in London

Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft said he believes it’s time for the NFL to have a team overseas.

“I personally think we should have a franchise in London, and that is something I am going to push for,” said Kraft, speaking as part of a promotional tour in advance of the Patriots-Rams game in England on Oct. 28. “I think I said that the last time we were over here in 2009 and before this next decade is out, I hope we have a team here. I think that would be right for the NFL, and this fan base has proven they deserve it.”

In the same interview, conducted with SkySports.com, Kraft said he would welcome the idea of the Patriots -- who will be playing their second game overseas in four years this fall -- playing a game in England on an annual basis.

“We lobbied hard to come back after having such a good experience in 2009,” Kraft said. “We would love to be the permanent visiting...
