Lowell: 'A privilege to be in this uniform'

BALTIMORE - With the Aug. 31 deadline for waiver trades having come and gone with Mike Lowell not having been dealt, the 36-year-old said that he was excited that he would be playing what are almost certainly his final weeks as a major leaguer in a Red Sox uniform.

 

While a lack of playing time had led Lowell to hope for a trade for much of the season, the fact that he is now getting an opportunity to play with the Sox has offered him contentment in Boston. In the end, he was glad that the deadline passed without him moving to another club.

 

“Obviously, at different points in the season, if it was going to a place where I would have played, I would have been happy with it,” said Lowell. “But the fact that I’m here with these guys, I feel like I have a great chance – whatever happens – to finish my career in this uniform. That’s a really good thing.

Jaworkski: Patriots offense can be 'dynamic'

Joining Dale Arnold and Christopher Price on the Dale & Holley Show Thursday afternoon was ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski, who said he was very optimistic regarding the Patriots' offense. The former NFL quarterback cited the Pats' drafting of tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez as big reasons for his analysis, saying the presence of more tight end targets for quarterback Tom Brady between the hash marks will open up the entire field.

 

"I think this offense can be as dynamic as any offense in the NFL," Jaworski said. 

 

Jaworski went on to say that he believes, "If Chad Henne has a big year, the Dolphins could come up as one of the sleeper teams this year." He surmised that it was going to take a while for Seattle head coach Pete Carroll to turn the Seahawks around.

 

Jaworksi touched on the most publicized rule change for the new year, moving the umpire. The analyst wasn'...

Agent: Lawsuit if Savard deal is voided
By: DJ Bean

Larry Kelly, the agent for Marc Savard, made the most notable noise from the Savard camp Thursday since news broke this month that the center’s contract with the Bruins was being investigated.

 

 

Savard signed a seven-year, $28.5 million extension with the Bruins in December, but its front-loaded nature has led to its investigation. The NHL is willing to grandfather such deals if the NHLPA agrees to a new way of calculating salary cap hits, but if the players association declines the terms, Savard’s deal could be voided.

 

“You can imagine the lawsuit that would ensue,” Kelly, who said the league had already given the deal its stamp of approval before opening the investigation.

 

A lawsuit could be warranted by the fact that not many teams have cap space to sign Savard, who would be a free agent if the deal is nixed. Savard is set to earn $4.007 million this season, but...

Manny flying in personal barber to Boston

Manny Ramirez told ESPN.com that he will be flying in his personal barber, Angel Pena (also known as 'LMontro'), when he comes to Boston for the White Sox' three-game series at Fenway Park, which starts Friday. Ramirez needs Pena to cut his hair due to the appearance standards upheld by the White Sox ever since owner Jerry Reinsdorf had A.J. Pierzynski and Joe Crede cut their hair in 2006.

 

"It seems like everywhere I go, people worry about my hair," Ramirez told ESPN.com after going 1-for-3 for the White Sox Wednesday. "I just want to go out there and play the game."

 

Pena, who routinely joined Ramirez on the road with the Red Sox while the slugger was playing with the Sox, cuts the hair of many major league players and personalities, including David Ortiz and White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen. Ramirez told ESPN.com that Pena was in Minnesota at the Twins-Tigers series, but would be in Boston by Friday...
