Clemens on Big Show: We'll have our say

Speaking publicly for the first time since being indicted on charges that he lied to Congress in 2008 about being injected with human growth hormone and steroids, former Red Sox pitcher Roger Clemens joined WEEI's The Big Show with Glenn Ordway and Lou Merloni during the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Telethon.

 

Ordway began the interview by saying that it might be unfair to ask Clemens how he was doing due to the recent circumstances, to which Clemens responded, "Well, I can't really control that. But you can ask me how I am. I'm doing fine."

 

Clemens talked extensively about his introduction to the Jimmy Fund — which he was first made aware of in 1984 — before talking about his indictment.

 

"I'm not going to get into details. All I'm going to say is that I learned a lot. My eyes were opened by some of the things that happened and did not happen," Clemens said. "We're...

West gets 10-game ban for gun incident

Guard Delonte West has been suspended without pay for 10 games after pleading guilty to carrying a concealed weapon and wearing, carrying and transporting a handgun, in violation of the law of the State of Maryland, the NBA announced Friday. West, who played last season for the Cavaliers, is currently a free agent. If West — who played with the Celtics from 2004 through 2007 — signs a contract to play again in the NBA, West’s suspension will begin with the first game of the NBA regular season for which he is eligible and physically able to play.

Perk: I'm cool with acquisition of Shaq

In his first public comments since the Celtics acquired Shaquille O’Neal, Kendrick Perkins said Friday that Boston’s pickup of O’Neal was a “great” acquisition, and added that he was “glad” the team made the move.

Speaking to the Boston Globe, Perkins, who suffered a knee injury in the NBA finals against the Lakers, said he isn’t intimidated by the thought of having to win his job back from O’Neal after missing the first few months of the season.

“I thought [Shaq] was a great pickup for what we got him for,” said Perkins, who is hoping for a late January return. “Shaq is a Hall of Famer. He can always help us. I think it was a great pickup. I am glad that he is on the team. We just got one goal, and that’s just trying to win the ring.

“I don’t see it threatening me at all,” he added. “I’ve got to work hard. I know I...

Pedroia placed on DL due to foot

The Red Sox have placed second baseman Dustin Pedroia on the 15-day disabled list due to continued soreness in his left foot, calling up Yamaico Navarro. Pedroia played in just two games since coming off the DL after recovering from a broken navicular bone in his foot, suffered on June 25 on a foul ball in San Francisco. Pedroia had played in two rehab games with Triple A Pawtucket over the weekend, showing no ill-effects after playing in the field on Saturday and serving as the PawSox' designated hitter Sunday. He noted, however, that after Wednesday night's game he experienced significant pain, not being able to get to sleep until 4 a.m.

 

"Today it's hurting when I walk," Pedroia noted. "So I guess the best thing to do is not do anything and let it heal ... After the second day it was pretty much impossible to keep playing. I have to let it heal. It's not fun."

Pedroia was urged to be upfront with the Red Sox...
