Stark on M&M: Bobby V can't help himself

ESPN baseball write Jayson Stark joined Mut & Merloni Wednesday afternoon and weighed in on Bobby Valentine's first spring training with the Red Sox.

"Just talking to Bobby, I felt like his approach going in it sounded like was going to be to try to take a step back and get to know everybody and learn everything there was to know and get a feel for everybody on his roster, and then start to make his feelings known," Stark said. "But as we found out, Bobby Valentine is just not wired that way."

Following Curt Schilling's critical comments about Valentine Tuesday, Stark said there's another way to look at the situation.

"I think his read to some extent is right, but we've got to remember something: This isn't what they've been used to," Stark said. "The fundamental rule of managerial hirings and firings...

Verducci on D&C: Valentine right fit for Sox

Sports Illustrated's Tom Verducci joined Dennis & Callahan Wednesday morning to discuss the Red Sox and news from around Major League Baseball.

While Verducci was speaking, the Mariners finished a 3-1 victory over the Athletics in 11 innings in the MLB regular-season opener in Japan.

"It seemed to sneak up on a lot of people," Verducci said, acknowledging that the game was not presented well for the American public.

"From our perspective, I get it, it seems like it's not worth the trouble," he said. "But from their perspective [in Japan], it's really a thrill."

Turning his attention to the Red Sox, Verducci was asked his opinion of new manager Bobby Valentine. Former Red Sox pitcher and current ESPN analyst Curt Schilling had harsh criticism for Valentine during an appearance on Mut & Merloni...

Judge forces Foxboro to let Kraft rep speak

On the same day a U.S. District Court judge ruled the town of Foxboro must allow representatives of the Kraft Group to speak at a selectman's meeting, town officials on Tuesday withdrew a Town Meeting measure that would have taken land on Route 1 to acquire a pair of billboards owned by the Kraft Group.

Selectmen voted unanimously to withdraw the article, shortly after Kraft Group director of project development Ted Fire spoke at Tuesday night's meeting and criticized Town Manager Kevin Paicos for previously refusing company officials to speak.

"It is truly shameful that Mr. Paicos and at least one member of this board took the steps they did to deny our constitutional right to be heard," Fire said.

Despite speculation to the contrary, Fire said he doesn't believe there is a connection between this controversy and a proposal for a resort casino complex on Kraft-owned land near the stadium.

"This has nothing to do with...

Mashup: Yanks' Joba explains bizarre injury

Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain met the media Tuesday for the first time since suffering an open dislocation of the subtalar join in the heel area in a trampoline accident last week. Chamberlain claimed the injury was not as bad as reported, and he said he plans to return later this season.

"One of those things that bothered me, people calling me asking me if it was life-threatening and that I was going to lose my foot," Chamberlain said. "There was no bone out of my ankle. It bothered me to have my family go through that. I broke no bones. I didn’t dislocate my ankle. Nothing was out of the skin. I didn’t lose a lot of blood, contrary to what people wrote. It wasn’t life-threatening and I wasn’t planning on losing my foot. Basically, when you rolled your ankle the skin just went."

Chamberlain, who has been rehabbing after Tommy John surgery last year, was jumping on trampolines at a facility with his 5-...

The group that includes Lakers legend Magic Johnson agreed Tuesday night to buy the Dodgers for a record $2 billion. Mark Walter, chief executive officer of the financial services firm Guggenheim Partners, willl become the controlling owner.

Frank McCourt, the previous owner, will acquire land surrounding Dodger Stadium, including its parking lots, for $150 million.

"I am thrilled to be part of the historic Dodger franchise and intend to build on the fantastic foundation laid by Frank McCourt as we drive the Dodgers back to the front page of the sports section in our wonderful community of Los Angeles," Johnson said in a statement.

McCourt purchased the team along with Dodger Stadium and land around the park in 2004 for $430 million, but his tenure was marked by controversy. Following a divorce settlement with his wife, Jamie, and a dispute with Major League Baseball, McCourt filed for bankruptcy. The team's sale must be approved...
