The Celtics built a 101-73 lead after three quarters, but the Raptors outscored the C's reserves, 39-16 in the fourth quarter.

Gammons: Sox could go hard after Crawford

Appearing on The Big Show, MLB.com and NESN baseball analyst Peter Gammons talked about the perception the public will have regarding the Red Sox spending money this offseason after their investment in the Liverpool F.C. soccer team. Regarding the purchase of the team, Gammons said, "I'm told it's a one billion dollar business they bought for about 400 million," also noting that the investment might actually help the Sox over a 10-year period.

 

Within the conversation about the Red Sox' approach in the offseason, Gammons suggested that Tampa Bay outfielder Carl Crawford will be the Sox' chief target. "My guess is that they will go really hard after Carl Crawford." The Hall of Fame journalist noted that Crawford might warrant the kind of long-term contract he will be looking for because "he doesn't want to be the guy stealing 70 bases," and is content in becoming more than just a basestealer heading into his 30's...
