Gammons: Sox could go hard after Crawford

Appearing on The Big Show, MLB.com and NESN baseball analyst Peter Gammons talked about the perception the public will have regarding the Red Sox spending money this offseason after their investment in the Liverpool F.C. soccer team. Regarding the purchase of the team, Gammons said, "I'm told it's a one billion dollar business they bought for about 400 million," also noting that the investment might actually help the Sox over a 10-year period.

 

Within the conversation about the Red Sox' approach in the offseason, Gammons suggested that Tampa Bay outfielder Carl Crawford will be the Sox' chief target. "My guess is that they will go really hard after Carl Crawford." The Hall of Fame journalist noted that Crawford might warrant the kind of long-term contract he will be looking for because "he doesn't want to be the guy stealing 70 bases," and is content in becoming more than just a basestealer heading into his 30's...

Julien: Too early to judge special teams

The team had the third-best penalty kill in the league in 2009-10, but allowing a power play goal on one of three opportunities the Coyotes had places them 28th in the league in the category. Bruins coach Claude Julien spoke about special teams on Friday and preached patience. 

 

"I think we had 19 shots on the power play. We came out with one goal," Julien said. "I know we had some opportunities, and we maybe didn't quite finish. … I wouldn't jump all over the power play and say it hasn't been good more than it hasn't had the results. 

 

"You get two more goals and you're in the top five. That's how close it is. It's two games in. It's just like our penalty kill. We gave...
