Reds look to '04 Red Sox for 'some action'

CINCINNATI -- Less than 24 hours after his team committed four errors in a 7-4 meltdown at Citizens Bank Park – booting away a realistic chance of beating the powerhouse Phillies in the NLDS – Reds manager Dusty Baker summoned the words and the spirit of Terry Francona from 2004. 

 

Orlando Cabrera and Bronson Arroyo, who reportedly will have his $11 million option exercised by the Reds for 2011, are the members of the Reds who were on that 2004 Red Sox team. 

 

"Arroyo was in Boston when they were down 3-0 in a best-of-7, and they came back and won four,” Baker recalled. “The hardest thing is to win one. And you win one, and you got yourself some action. And we’ve got our backs up against the wall, but this club performs well with our backs up against the wall. That’s the kind of club we have. I wish we didn’t always have our backs against the wall, but, you know, we...

Tony Gwynn diagnosed with cancer

Hall of Fame outfielder Tony Gywnn told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he has been diagnosed with cancer of a salivary gland. The 50-year-old Gwynn told the paper he suspects chewing tobacco was the cause for the condition, which will now lead to two months of radiation treatments (5 times a week), and chemotherapy once a week. "They say this is a slow-moving but aggressive form of cancer," Gwynn told the Union-Tribune from his Poway home. "I'm going to be aggressive and not slow-moving in treating this." For more on Gwynn, click here.

Doc on Miami rumors: 'I'm not going there'

There has been speculation that Doc Rivers would be Pat Riley's first choice if he were to make a coaching change at some point with his new South Beach juggernaut. Rivers downplayed that Saturday. "I’m not getting into that," Rivers said. "The only guy on [Riley's] list is Erik [Spoelstra] and that’s the only guy that should be there. I’m not going there."  

 

As for his own future, Rivers reiterated that he is taking it one step at a time. "I’m year to year," Rivers said. "That’s how I am. The question asked was where else would you rather go? And I don’t think there’s a better place than here. It’s a great set-up and it is phenomenal."

Shaq sits, Jermaine O'Neal practices

The Celtics welcomed back Jermaine O'Neal to practice Saturday, but they were without Shaquille O'Neal who was resting his hip. "That will be an issue on and off at times," Doc Rivers said of Shaq. "We’re prepared for that." 

 

Jermaine O'Neal, however, went through the whole two-hour practice after sitting out the previous week with a sore left hamstring. "It felt good to be back out there, just knocking the rust off, getting your timing and conditioning back up," O'Neal said. "You got to start somewhere." As for Sunday's exhibition game at the Garden, "Right now, I’m planning on playing," O'Neal said. Rivers said it would be a game-time decision.

 

Delonte West who has been bothered by back spasms also practiced Saturday.

Bruins lackluster in season-opening loss
By: DJ Bean

PRAGUE -- The Bruins entered the 2010-11 season as one of the NHL's elite teams on paper. They did everything they could for the first two periods of Saturday's season-opener to suggest otherwise, and the glimpses of promise they did show in the third period proved to be too little, too late. The team showed all sorts of offensive and defensive weaknesses as they dropped the opener in Prague, 5-2, to the Coyotes.

 

Though he did allow four goals in the game, Tuukka Rask didn't exactly struggle, as one of Phoenix' goals came on the flukiest of plays and another came on a breakaway caused by a Daniel Paille gaffe. 

 

Nathan Horton scored both of the Bruins' goals in the third period, twice beating Ilya Bryzgalov from the hashmarks with wrist shots. Rookie center Tyler Seguin, playing in his first NHL after being the second overall pick in June's NHL draft, finished the game with four shots on goal and a minus-two rating....
