Goodell on D&C: No room for illegal hits

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell joined the Dennis & Callahan Show Thursday morning to discuss a variety of topics, most notably the league’s approach toward disciplining players for illegal hits. Goodell was in Boston Wednesday night to be honored by the Sports Legacy Institute, and is in the midst of a week where the NFL has fined three players (including Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather) a total of $175,000 for illegal hits levied during last weekend’s games. (To hear the entire interview, click here).

 

The main topic Goodell addressed was how the NFL is approaching the disciplining of players going forward in regard to illegal hits/contact. The commissioner stated that he doesn't believe there will be any other dramatic alterations in terms of what fans will see on the field in regard to discipline, and that the NFL has a policy in...

Suggs: I'll get last laugh on Brady

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs fired back at Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on Wednesday, saying Brady “whines” a lot. Suggs also promised to get the “last laugh” on Brady, and poked fun about the protection the quarterback has received in the wake of the creation of the “Brady Rule.”

“For a guy that whines a lot, at least I didn’t have any rules put in for me,” Suggs told Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post. “I don’t care. I’m over it. It was last week. He can have the last word, but I’ll have the last laugh, I promise you.”

Suggs comments came in the wake of the Patriots 23-20 win over Baltimore. The day after the game, Brady said Suggs and the Ravens “talk a lot of beating us once in nine years.”

Suggs and Brady got into an argument during the game.

“He was trying to tell me how to bag a Hollywood...

Mashup: Call for hockey to ban head hits

At a Mayo Clinic conference on concussions in ice hockey, a panel recommended banning hits to the head at every level of the game — from youth to the NHL — and eliminating bodychecking under the age of 13. "The clock is ticking," said conference co-organizer Dr. Michael J. Stuart, the chief medical officer for USA Hockey and the father of three sons who have played in the NHL (including Bruins defenseman Mark Stuart). "If we say we need additional long-term injury research to validate any kind of recommendation, there will be a lot of athletes who'll suffer." Read more about that story, plus check out other stories, videos, trivia and more, at Thursday's Morning Mashup.

A's tab PawSox hitting coach Perry

Gerald Perry, who spent the 2010 season as the hitting coach for the Red Sox' Triple-A affiliate, was named the Oakland A's hitting coach on Wednesday. Perry has spent 10 years as a big league hitting coach, serving in that capacity for the Mariners from 2000-02, the Pirates from 2003-05, the A's in 2006 and the Cubs from 2007-09.

 

The 2010 PawSox finished second-to-last in the International League in runs scored, though a number of Red Sox position prospects enjoyed strong developmental years at the level. Ryan Kalish, Lars Anderson, Josh Reddick and Daniel Nava headlined the notable prospects who worked with Perry while in Pawtucket this year.

Giants walkoff within a game of World Series

Giants shortstop Juan Uribe's ninth-inning sacrifice fly against Roy Oswalt of the Phillies capped a wild Game 4 of the National league Championship Series, giving San Francisco a 6-5 walkoff win. With the victory, the Giants assumed a commanding 3-to-1 lead in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series. They will have the opportunity to clinch a World Series berth at home on Thursday in Game 5.

 

The game saw plenty of drama. The Giants claimed an early 2-0 lead on a pair of run-scoring hits (a single and a double) from catcher Buster Posey in the first and third innings. But the Phillies came roaring back with four runs in the top of the fifth inning in a rally that featured a run-scoring single from Shane Victorino, a two-run double by Placido Polanco and a run-scoring wild pitch.

 

The Giants, however, pushed back for one run in the fifth and then plated two in the sixth on a double by Pablo Sandoval that put...
