The proposed plan to move in the right field fence at Fenway Park still has to clear some hurdles before being enacted. While the plan -- which would expand the bullpens from their current width of 21 feet to at least 27 feet -- was approved by the Boston Landmarks Commission, it still has to be given the green light by the Massachusetts Historical Commission, the National Parks Service, and Major League Baseball before being put in motion. The increased width of the bullpens was recommended by Major League Baseball, which offers the guideline of 27 feet for all MLB stadiums.

Favre said that his experience fighting through injuries in the past is another reason to be optimistic regarding his chances of playing on Sunday.
"I've always had a knack for healing I think quicker than most people," Favre said. "I know I've been able to play with different types of injuries that most people probably wouldn't have attempted. That kind of gives me a little hope...
WILMINGTON -- Tyler Seguin knows that the strides he makes in his career will be forever compared to those of Phil Kessel, given that the Bruins selected Seguin with a pick sent their way in a deal for Kessel last year. The 18-year-old rookie has impressed so far with the B's so far, picking up three points in his first six games, but as Kessel and the Leafs come to town Thursday, he doesn't want fans to expect him to replace his production immediately.
"I think it is a little bit too early right now to just do that," Seguin said Wednesday. "Phil's much older. He's already on the top line. He's already earned his stripes, and I'm just a guy who's what, six games into my career? It's a little bit different."
