Maddon: 'Don't have [show] in Tampa Bay'

 

Speaking prior to his team's game against the Red Sox Friday afternoon at Fenway Park, Rays manager Joe Maddon laughed when asked if he could imagine having a weekly radio show in another city other than the one his team plays in. "I don't even have one in our own city," he said. "I don't have one in Tampa Bay."

The question was asked due to the controversy surrounding Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine's weekly appearance on a New York sports radio station. 

Maddon said if he was to start a radio show, it would most likely be in his hometown of Hazleton, Penn. "I could have one on WAZL, the mighty 1490," he said. "That's the place I would do it."

Maddon also addressed the notion that former Rays' catcher Kelly Shoppach might give the Red Sox advantage, carrying knowledge of his old team. It was one of the reasons Valentine said Shoppach got the nod in the starting lineup Friday.

Krejci misses practice, will play Game 2
By: DJ Bean

Bruins center David Krejci did not practice Friday, a day after he was hit in the back with a pane of glass following Chris Kelly's game-winning goal in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. Krejci said he was not tested for a concussion, and that he will play in Game 2 Saturday despite some neck pain. 

"I've got a little sore neck, but other than that I'm good and I'll play tomorrow," he said.

Krejci, who led all players with 12 goals and 23 points last postseason, was celebrating with his teammates in the Washington zone when the glass fell on him. 

"I guess fans got kind of carried away from the Kels goal, and it just happened," he said. "Glass fell." 

Added Krejci: "I looked, like 'What happened?' because I didn't expect that, so I looked at what happened. Then I got up, skated away, and that's about it."

Bruins coach Claude Julien said after the practice that...

Lucchino on M&M: 'Foolish' to panic over Sox

Red Sox president and CEO Larry Lucchino stopped by for a visit with Mut & Merloni Friday before the Red Sox' home opener and said it's important to put the team's 1-5 start in perspective.

"Perspective, by the way, should be the key word for what we talk about today," he said. "Six games, my gracious. We've been around the game long enough, all of us here, to know better. It's hard to control your emotions and to control your emotional reactions to tough losses, and some of them have been tough losses. But we should be smart enough, we should be experienced enough to know what a small sample we have and how foolish it would be to extrapolate too far, too much from that.

Added Lucchino: "It's unfortunate that it happens right out of the gate. Everyone wants a better start than that. But let's cool our jets a little until we get a little more data and a little more meaningful results."

Lucchino acknowledged that...

Valentine: 'Holding my breath' on Beckett

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, asked about the challenges presented by a 13-man pitching staff, suggested that the team might reconsider its roster balance after Friday's game if starting pitcher Josh Beckett's right thumb is healthy. That said, Valentine made it sound as if he is not taking such an outcome for granted.

"After today’s game, [the 13-man pitching staff] could be more of a resolvable situation, but I’m still holding my breath making sure Josh is fine," said Valentine. "I was happy one time through the rotation, I was happy with the health and the ability of the starting staff. The extra pitcher was really protection against that situation."

That said, asked whether that meant that the thumb is an active cause of concern, Valentine tried to downplay the notion that the pitcher's health is in concern.

"It’s a moot point, but it’s a situation that was out there, right? He has...

Crawford: 'A little setback' with elbow

Carl Crawford said Friday that he suffered a setback with his left (throwing) elbow that has pushed back his timetable for returning to spring training games. An MRI in Boston this week revealed a strained left elbow. 

"I just had to come up here and get my elbow checked I think it was best to be up here with the doctors for the next few days," Crawford said before Friday's home opener. "I'm not sure when I'm going back to Fort Myers but I should be heading back pretty soon. 

"This was the week I was scheduled to play games so it's just a little setback but hopefully I'll catch up. Just strained it a little bit and had to work on it a little bit. I was supposed to playing games this week so I guess I'll be playing next week, hopefully." 

Crawford said the latest setback was particularly frustrating since he had been making progress from arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist in January.
