New Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal has been known to dabble in acting. In fact, he has quite the resume of roles on the big and small screeen.

Knicks owner James Dolan’s decision to re-hire Isiah Thomas as a consultant did not go over well in New York. The team has been taking an absolute beating in the local papers, with reporters finding the move offensive and insulting.

With the loss, the Sox fall seven games in back of the first-place Yanks, while remaining 4 1/2 behind Tampa Bay in the Wild Card race.

Pedroia, who has now been out of action for more than six weeks after breaking his foot, will take Monday off before attempting to continue his running program Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
"I hit, then I ran around the bases a couple of times. Jogged around the bases. I felt OK. Every day, it's getting better," said Pedroia, who still doesn't know if he is going to have to participate in a rehab assignment. "Three days ago, I thought I was out for the year. Now I feel like I can play soon. Every day's getting better."

How can teams acquire players who are entering their primes without having to live through the potentially massive transition of prospects coming from the minors to the big leagues? The Red Sox have two such case studies. The signing of Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo represents one effort to acquire a player for his prime years for whom the transition to big league-caliber competition might not be turbulent. Red Sox assistant director of player personnel discusses the scouting process involved with landing Castillo. The episode also features Brock Holt, the one rookie who played at a consistently high level for the Red Sox this year. Holt explores some of the distinctions that might help to explain why he did not experience some of the struggles that characterized the seasons of Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr.
