Cliff Lee dominant as Rangers crush Yankees

Rangers ace Cliff Lee added to his dominant postseason resume, setting a new personal playoff high by striking out 13 Yankees to lead Texas to an 8-0 victory. With the win, the Rangers are now up 2-to-1 in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series.

 

Lee dissected the Yankees over the course of eight innings, retiring the first 11 batters and, after issuing a two-out walk (his first in three starts this postseason) in the fourth, carrying a no-hitter through 4 2/3 innings. Though the left-hander's bid for the second no-hitter of this postseason faded with Jorge Posada's broken-bat bloop single to right, Lee dominated New York, allowing just two hits in his night of work.

 

The Yankees advanced just one runner past first base against Lee, when Brett Gardner singled, stole second and advanced to third on a groundout in the sixth. But Mark Teixeira grounded out to end New York's only real threat of the night.

Seau says he wasn't attempting suicide
By: DJ Bean

According to a report from TMZ, former Patriots linebacker Junior Seau told law enforcement that he was not trying to kill himself when he drove his Cadillac Escalade off a cliff in Carlsbad, Calif., on Monday morning. 

 

Seau was arrested on Monday for allegedly assaulting his 25-year-old girlfriend, and claims that when his SUV went off a cliff hours later, it was as a result of him falling asleep behind the wheel. TMZ notes that there was no evidence of Seau, a 12-time Pro Bowl selection, being under the influence of alcohol or drugs, though the former linebacker's blood was drawn, with results being expected within the next six weeks.

Report: Savard passes exertion test
By: DJ Bean

It appears that Marc Savard can start down the road of getting into playing shape for this season, as Peter Chiarelli recently told Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe that the center has passed the exertion test that he failed on the first day of training camp back on September 17.

 

Savard has been dealing with post-concussion syndrome symptoms since late in the summer, when the effects of the March 7 Matt Cooke hit prevented him from continuing his training.

 

Since he is on long-term injury reserve, Savard must miss the season's first 10 games and 24 days, though Shinzawa writes that Savard has skated since passing the test. The test clears Savard for more physically demanding activity, including weight lifting more intense cardio work.

BB on Big Show: Don't expect Mankins trade
By: DJ Bean

Patriots coach Bill Belichick made his weekly appearance on The Big Show on Monday, discussing the team's overtime victory over the Ravens, the return of Deion Branch, and Brandon Meriweather's head-to-head hit on Baltimore tight end Todd Heap. 

 

Regarding Meriweather, who is expected to be fined for the hit in which he led with his helmet, Belichick said the safety needs to stay aggressive without crossing any lines.

 

"If those plays are illegal, then you can't do it. That's what the rule is and we have to play about the rules," Belichick said. "We coach that, and the players understand it. It's a split-second decision. It's no different than hitting the quarterback below the knees or above the shoulders, but again, it's the responsibility of the defender or the pass-rusher to make that contact in a legal manner, so we have to do it.

 

"You keep the aggressiveness. It's...

Rivers has 'minor throat surgery'

Celtics coach Doc Rivers had what the team called "minor throat surgery" Sunday morning at Mass General Hospital. Assistant coach Lawrence Frank said the procedure was planned, and was "in and out." Rivers missed practice on Monday and was at his home in Boston resting his voice. A team spokesman said the surgery was designed to relieve pressure on Rivers' vocal chords. 

 

"He came through," Frank said. "He feels good, but right now the doctor just doesn’t want him using his voice. So he’s day to day, but everything looks good and we look forward to getting him back." Frank said that Rivers left the coaches with a practice plan, and while there is no definitive timetable for Rivers to return to the team, he is day to day.
