Maddon: A lot of respect for Red Sox players

Speaking before his team's game against the Red Sox Saturday night, Rays manager Joe Maddon emphasized that he has admiration for the Red Sox players, but would not mention the Sox' coaching staff or respond to Bobby Valentine's comments regarding the aggressiveness of Tampa Bay's coaches during the teams' bench-clearing altercation Friday night.

"I covered everything about that I wanted to last night," Maddon said. "The thing I would like to cover today if I may is how much respect I have for the Red Sox players. I've been doing this now for seven or eight years in the American League East and I've had a strong feeling for the professionalism of the Red Sox players that entire time. Guys like [David] Ortiz, [Dustin] Pedroia, [Kevin] Youkilis, [Josh] Beckett's pitching tonight. My respect goes out to them. As we move this thing forward I think we have the same kind of thing here. With the Rays players we come here to play baseball. We like...

Source: Bradley surgery on both shoulders

WALTHAM -- As the Celtics prepare for Game 7 Saturday night at TD Garden against the Sixers, Avery Bradley is resting after surgery Friday on both shoulders, a source with direct knowledge of the situation tells 

The source confirms that Bradley had surgery on Friday and is expecting a summer-long rehab program that could last up to four months. If all goes as expected, Bradley should be ready for training camp in October. 

Bradley initially injured the rotator cuff in his left shoulder but after playing with the injury, he also injured the right shoulder to the point where it needed to be repaired as well. Bradley had the left shoulder pop out in the third quarter of Game 4 against the Sixers and missed Games 5 and 6 before deciding to have surgery on Friday, performed by team doctor Brian McKeon, so that he could be ready for training camp in October. 

Ray Allen started in place of Bradley and will start again...

Maddon tweets Sox actions 'idiotic, cowardly'

After the Rays 7-4 win over the Red Sox Friday night at Fenway Park, in a game both benches cleared following Tampa Bay DH Luke Scott being hit by a pitch from Sox reliever Franklin Morales, Rays manager Joe Maddon took to Twitter to express more of his feelings on the matter.

@RaysJoeMaddon wrote: "Very proud of our effort 2nite. What occurred in the 9th reeked of intent. Was ridiculous, absurd, idiotic, incompetent, cowardly behavior."

The comment followed Maddon's postgame analysis of the incident, in which he told reporters something similar to the early-morning tweet.


"By the way their players reacted to the entire situation, I knew it did not come from them," Maddon said. "It’s kind of...

Bobby V: 'Ghost of Fenway' sent ball at Scott
By: DJ Bean

Bobby Valentine said that "boys will be boys" when asked to describe what happened in the ninth inning of the Red Sox' 7-4 loss to the Rays at Fenway Park Friday night. Franklin Morales drilled Tampa designated hitter Luke Scott with a pitch in the top of the ninth after nearly missing him earlier in the at-bat, causing both benches to clear.

Valentine also mentioned Luke's past words about Fenway and the Red Sox fans. Scott referred to Fenway as a "dump" in April and earlier blasted Red Sox fans for their "arrogance." 

"Maybe it was the Ghost of Fenway Past remembering he bad-mouthed all our fans and our stadium, directing the ball at his leg," Valentine said.

Morales said following the game that he did not intend to hit Scott. 

"I tried to make my pitch inside and I missed it and I'm sorry," Morales said. "I don't try to hit any players."

Sox lose to Rays as benches empty

The Red Sox dropped a 7-4 decision to the Rays Friday night at Fenway Park in a game that was highlighted by a bench-clearing altercation in the ninth inning.

Taking the loss for the Red Sox was starting pitcher Jon Lester, who gave up a grand slam to Matt Joyce in the third inning, along with two more home runs, from Eliot Johnson and Carlos Pena, one inning later. Lester finished his outing allowing seven runs on six hits, walking three while throwing 81 pitches over four innings.

Rays starter Alex Cobb allowed just two runs on three hits over five innings, with the Sox getting their pair of runs against the starter via a Kevin Youkilis first-inning RBI single, and Adrian Gonzalez' run-scoring double in the fifth inning.

The impetus for the ninth-inning confrontation came when Franklin Morales hit Luke Scott in the right knee after throwing behind the DH the previous pitch. Scott first yelled out at Morales, and then squared off with Sox...
