Sox PA silent Thursday to honor Beane

The Red Sox announced that the PA microphone will be silent during the series opener between the Sox and Indians on Thursday in honor of Carl Beane, who died Wednesday in a single-car crash. Beane, 59, had been the PA announcer at Fenway since 2003. The Sox also announced that they will have a tribute to Beane before the game on Thursday night.

Lineup: Sox call up Nava, put him in left

The Red Sox called up outfielder Daniel Nava for Thursday's game against the Indians. After a slow start, Nava has been among the hottest hitters in Triple-A over roughly the past three weeks.

In his last 16 games, he leads the International League with a .429 average, ranks second with a .484 OBP, third with a .696 slugging mark and third with a 1.181 OPS. In that span, he is 24-for-56 with two homers, seven doubles and a triple.

Though Nava was used primarily against left-handed pitchers when with the Sox in 2010, this year, he's hitting well against pitchers of both handedness. Against righties, he has a line of .328/.418/.552/.970, with marks of .286/.429/.393/.821 against southpaws.

The team optioned right-hander Clayton Mortensen, who has allowed just one run in 9 1/3 innings spanning three appearances while striking out 12 and walking none, to Triple-A. Justin Thomas was removed from the 40-man roster to clear a spot for Nava.

Revis calls Belichick 'disrespectful'

Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis fired another shot at the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick on Thursday, standing by the fact that he called him a “jerk” earlier this offseason and adding that some of the things Belichick has said about the Jets over the years have been “disrespectful.”
 
“I gave my honest opinion,” Revis told reporters when asked about his comments on Belichick earlier this offseason. “You guys know me very well. This isn’t the first time me speaking what I need to speak about something. I talked about the Randy Moss stuff… It’s just how I felt. That’s how I feel.”
 
Revis said he does respect Belichick, but seemed to hint that the coach’s on-field comments after beating...

Olney: Sox need answers from Beckett
By: DJ Bean

Buster Olney of ESPN joined Mut & Merloni Thursday to discuss the Red Sox and their current woes. On the subject of Josh Beckett, Olney said the team needs to determine whether the pitcher, who reportedly went golfing last Thursday after being scratched for Saturday's start with a lat injury, has any intention of returning to his 2007 form, when he finished second in American League Cy Young voting and led the Sox to a World Series title. 

"You try to figure out a way to sort of get past this stuff. I think you could hear it in Bobby [Valentine]'s answers yesterday when he was sort of struggling for answers and trying to get a grip around it," Olney said of Beckett's behavior. "I'm sure that today, presumably after the game, they're going to be looking for answers from him as well. I'm sure that they're just looking for some sign that he wants to get back to doing what he was doing in 2007, that he wants t be the leader of the...

MacMullan: C's series has B's-Caps feel
By: DJ Bean

ESPN columnist Jackie MacMullan joined Mut & Merloni Thursday to discuss the Celtics and Thursday night's Game 6 against the Hawks. The Celtics lead the series, 3-2, and have the opportunity to advance to the second round with a Game 6 victory. 

"I expect them to win the game tonight, but here's what gives me pause: This has the same feel to it, to me, as Game 7 of the Bruins-Capitals," MacMullan said. "Everybody's like, 'Yeah, they never should have gotten to this point, but it's OK, they're home, they're going to take care of it.' Well, it just doesn't magically happen. 

"Of course, and you don't think Doc [Rivers] is going to bring this up? The Celtics have never lost a series that they've been ahead 3-1. Never. You think these guys want to be the first ones to do that? I don't think so."

MacMullan noted that the Celtics have "everything they can handle" with center Al Horford back in the...
