One who knows: Why Clay Buchholz (sort of) feels Stephen Strasburg's pain

Stephen Strasburg could only watch as the Nationals' season came to a crashing halt. (AP)Five years ago, the Red Sox nearly confronted the same horrible two-word counterfactual inquiry that will haunt the 2012 Washington Nationals all offseason: What if?

What if the Nationals hadn’t shut down Stephen Strasburg? What if the dominating right-hander had been the Game 1 and Game 5 starter (relegating Gio Gonzalez to a Game 2 outing)? Or, even if on a restricted workload, could he have come in and impacted the end of a game as David Price did in 2008, when, as a rookie, he closed out the Rays’ Game 7 win in the ALCS against the Sox?

Would Washington have won its first playoff series since 1924? Would Strasburg have avoided the meltdown that Gonzalez endured in a 36-pitch fifth inning on Friday that set in motion the Cardinals...

Bass: 'Doc will make best decision for team'

WALTHAM -- With all the talk of different starting lineups for the Celtics this season, the reality is that Doc Rivers has eight or nine players who could fit that role depending on the situation. The obvious parallel to that is four players who could start will have to come off the bench. 

Rookie Jared Sullinger has emerged as a potential starter, which would ultimately put Brandon Bass with the second unit. Bass said he had no comment about any of the lineup maneuvering, and added, "We have to get better as a team. I think Doc will make the best decision for the team." 

Pressed further he said, "I've got to keep getting better, everybody’s got to keep getting better." The Celtics next preseason game is Saturday night in Hartford when they play the Knicks.

Farrell: 'Happy as manager of Blue Jays'

Blue Jays manager John Farrell, in an interview on MLB Network Radio, said that he was unaware if there had been any contact from the Red Sox to the Jays. At a time when Farrell is viewed widely as the first choice of the Red Sox to fill their managerial vacancy, the Toronto manager -- who has one year left on the three-year contract he signed to become the Jays manager after the 2010 season, following a four-year stint as Red Sox pitching coach -- he also described himself as both "challenged" and "happy" in his current job. 

“Well, I'm the manager of the Toronto Blue Jays. That's where I've been the last two years. That's where I currently am," said Farrell. "This speculation started to rear its head again, oh, probably the final two months of the season. I can tell you this -- in my conversations with Alex [Anthopoulos] it hasn't distracted me from my job and what the commitment there is. I'm extremely...

King on M&M: 'Fired up' Seahawks have edge

Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports made his weekly Patriots Friday appearance on Mut & Merloni to preview Sunday's Patriots-Seahawks game. King is predicting a Seattle victory, and he touched on his reasons why.

"I think the biggest factor in this game, at least early on, is whether [Tom] Brady can take the crowd out of the game and take the speed of the Seattle defense out of the game," King said. "It's something that Aaron Rodgers couldn't do early on [in the Packers' loss on Sept. 24]. … [The Seahawks] ended up totally manhandling and had the eight sacks in the first half. The way I look at this game is I think it's going to be the same thing. I think the Seahawks are going try to use the fact that, my guess is the Patriots are going to have to go silent snap count for a lot of this game. The crowd will be in it early. And I think the way the Patriots will try to neutralize it is keeping substitutions off the...
