Remy on D&C: 'Not happening' for Ortiz

NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning. With David Ortiz having another miserable game Tuesday night, Remy said Ortiz may have reached a new low. "People are pulling him, but it's just not happening," Remy said. "I personally felt bad for him last night after he grounded out. Because you could tell that was his spot, that's what he wanted. He wanted to thrive in that spot, but it just didn't happen for him."

 

Ortiz appears frustrated with the constant questions about his struggles, but Remy said the media is not being unreasonable. "Do I think it's unfair? No, it's not unfair. It's what people talk about all the time."

 

Remy said Wednesday night will tell us a lot about Ortiz' future -- especially if the slugger is not in the lineup. "I have a sense [Terry Francona] will go back to Ortiz, although I can't be 100...

Ainge's towel toss under league review

When he played, Celtics general manager Danny Ainge was known as a guy who would do anything to win. Apparently, he hasn't lost that edge. During Monday night's game in Cleveland, Ainge, sitting just to the side of the basket, threw a towel in the air in an attempt to distract J.J. Hickson, who was shooting a free throw. An NBA spokesman said "The situation is under review." Check the Green Street blog for more.

Red Sox recap: Fenway grass was a problem

According to Red Sox shortstop Marco Scutaro, part of his early defensive problems could be traced to the inconsistencies of the Fenway Park infield grass. Scutaro, who hasn't made an error since April 17, said, however, that since the team has returned home the Fenway turf has been cut shorter, resulting in truer hops. “It’s just trying to get used to [the field] and make adjustments," he said. "I think the grass was what was messing up the ground balls up. The dirt, it’s not that bad. But the grass was thick and ground balls would go all over the place. It feels better.”

Recchi on D&C: Flyers woke 'sleeping giant'

Bruins forward Mark Recchi joined the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to talk about the B's playoff run. Asked about advice the 42-year-old veteran gave to the team's younger players, Recchi said: "This is a great time of year right now. Enjoy it. Embrace it. Don't let the pressure grab you. If you do that, you're going to really have a good time with this and we're going to be a better team for it."

 

The Flyers have been trying to get under the Bruins' skin in the first two games, but Recchi said all they've done is "wake the sleeping giant." Said Recchi: "When we get involved in these games, we seem to really get the emotion and are able to play a better hockey game."

 

Recchi said the key reason for the Bruins' late-season turnaround was the team sticking together. "We believed in ourselves in the dressing room, and what we were trying to do," he said. "We knew we...
