Red Sox pitching coach search underway

According to a baseball source, the Red Sox have begun the process of conducting interviews to find the replacement for John Farrell, the team's former pitching coach whose hiring as Blue Jays manager was announced on Monday. The team has already interviewed multiple candidates from outside the organization, with former Oakland pitching coach Curt Young having been the most impressive of the external candidates to date. Later this week, the Sox will interview a pair of internal candidates: roving minor league pitching instructor Ralph Treuel and advance scout Mike Cather.

Red Sox announced 2011 ticket prices

Red Sox ticket prices will feature an average increase of 2 percent in the 2011 season, with the majority of ticket prices remaining unchanged, the team announced in a press release. While 17 different ticket categories will remain unaltered, the team will feature markups of no more than $5 per ticket to 30 percent of its seats.

 

The increase, the team said, is the second smallest in the last 16 years, behind only the decision heading into the 2009 season to freeze all ticket prices.

 

"The Boston Red Sox fans are the most loyal in all of Major League Baseball, and we are constantly mindful of this as we make decisions that will have an impact on the Club, Fenway Park, and our fans. After considerable evaluation, we decided to implement a small increase on a limited number of prime tickets for the 2011 season – the second lowest percentage increase over the past 16 seasons," Sam Kennedy, team Executive...

Broussard on D&H: LeBron surprised at vitriol

ESPN's Chris Broussard joined the Dale & Holley show Tuesday afternoon to talk about Tuesday's Celtics-Heat season-opener at TD Garden. Broussard talked about the fallout from the LeBron James decision and how the people of Cleveland remain angry at their former hero.

 

"The people, they're not forgiving LeBron, and I don't know when they will," Broussard said. "I think, especially if the Cavaliers struggle, it's going to be a long time before they're ready to forgive LeBron. … Most people are heartbroken, and that heartbrokenness has turned into anger and depression. They really are still very angry."

 

Broussard said this is not a racial issue. "It's across racial lines," he said, adding: "In Cleveland, it's universal that they are down on him. In the 'hood, in the suburbs, everywhere, black, white, Hispanic, whatever. They're down on LeBron all throughout Cleveland."...

BB on Childress: Focus is on Sunday

Patriots coach Bill Belichick isn’t going to get drawn into a war of words with Vikings coach Brad Childress.

Childress, who has jabbed at the Patriots several times in recent years, said Monday the Patriots were “some of the all-time great signal stealers,” and referenced a 2006 Monday Night game between the two teams at Minnesota’s Metrodome. Asked about the comments on a Tuesday conference call, Belichick said the focus right now is on Sunday.

“Right now, we’re just trying to focus on the Vikings, to go and get ready to play them,” he said. “[We’re] not really worried about any other games that have happened in the past or any ones that are coming up on the schedule. Right now, just getting ready for Minnesota. And that will consume a lot of energy and time right there. That’s plenty to work on.”

Childress has taken several shots at Belichick over the...
