Youkilis back in as Sox look for ninth straight

Kevin Youkilis returns to the lineup for the Red Sox on Sunday as the club looks for its ninth straight win -- and third consecutive three-game series sweep -- on Sunday vs. the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre.

Youkilis missed Saturday's 16-4 win over the Blue Jays. Terry Francona said he thought it was a "good day" to give the third baseman a day off, as Saturday was a day game following a night game on Friday. 

The Sox (38-26) have a two-game lead over the Yankees in the AL East (the teams have the top two records in the American League) and a win today coupled with a Phillies loss would give Boston the best record in baseball.

Jon Lester (8-2, 3.98) takes the hill for the Sox, looking to become the first AL pitcher to reach nine wins this season. He'll be opposed by rookie Kyle Drabek (4-4, 4.98).

Vote: Who is Canucks' biggest villain?
By: admin

This is no longer just a hockey series.

The series between the Bruins and Canucks is quickly taking a turn towards the ugly and personal, with accusations of dirty hits, bites and shoddy goalie play. The two teams don't seem to like each other much, and certainly, Bruins fans think that any number of Vancouver players deserves to appear in a police lineup.

Five games into the Stanley Cup finals, which Canucks player do you consider the biggest villain of the series? Click here to take part in the Big Bad Blog's vote.

McGinest: I'd like to retire as a Patriot

Forner Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest spent some time working out with the Detriot Lions recently and dropped some hints about a possible comeback, but the 39-year-old said there was only one he would return to the game. In a statement issued via his publicist on Saturday, McGinest spelled everything out.

“Even though I looked as good as I did, this number 55 has been retired for three years and plans to stay retired. The only thing that will bring me back is a one day contract with New England to retire as a Patriot.”

McGinest won three Super Bowls with the Patriots, and played in New England from 1994 through 2005. He then spent three seasons with Cleveland.

Luongo adds to his comments about Thomas

Roberto Luongo, who created some controversy after saying that he would have made the save on the Max Lapierre shot allowed by Bruins' goalie Tim Thomas in the B's 1-0 Game 5 loss to Vancouver, didn't back off his analysis when talking just prior to his team leaving for Boston Saturday.

"I said he might make some saves that I don't. I was just saying, on that particular play, I would have played it different. That's the difference between me and him," the Canucks goalie told reporters. "I have been pumping his tires ever since the series started. I haven't heard one nice thing he had to say about me. That's the way it is."

Luongo, whose team holds a 3-2 advantage over the Bruins in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup finals, articulated following the Canucks win at Rogers Arena that because of the two goalies' styles -- with Thomas being more aggressive, and Luongo typically remaining closer to the net -- it was his opinion that he...

Julien says Luongo entitled to his opinion

Asked about the comments made by Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo following his the Canucks' Game 5 Stanley Cup finals win over the Bruins, stating that he would have made the save on the Max Lapierre goal given up by B's goalie Tim Thomas, Bruins coach Claude Julien downplayed the controversy during Saturday's media session.

"To be honest with you, this series has been a lot about that, and I know you guys are probably loving it, but we're down to the wire here and have to fosu on our game and what it means, a lot more than what is being said," said Julien, whose team is facing elimination, down 3-2 with Game 6 to be played at TD Garden Monday night.

"Everybody is entitled to their opinion. Anybody can say what they want. Right now my focus is on getting this team back in this series. The last time we came back here we were down two games and we got ourselves back into it and I see no reason at all why we can't do that with the one...
