Beckett: 'I had lapses in judgment'

FORT MYERS -- Starter Josh Beckett, in his first extended conversation about the Red Sox' September collapse and his role in it, discussed the disappointment of missing the playoffs and acknowledged that he had "lapses in judgment" in terms of his clubhouse conduct. At the same time, while acknowledging that he did gain weight over the course of last season, he said that physical conditioning was not an issue for him last year, and that he "was ready to pitch every time" he took the mound, including a September stretch in which he went 1-2 with a 5.48 ERA in four starts (he missed two due to injury).

"Nobody was more disappointed than the players were. I didn’t pitch well. That was the bottom line. My last two starts against Baltimore, they weren’t good," said Beckett. "I’m not saying we didn’t make mistakes because we did make mistakes in the clubhouse. But the biggest mistake we made was -- the...

Lester: Last year will 'make us better'

FORT MYERS -- Jon Lester acknowledged Sunday morning - on reporting day for Red Sox pitchers and catchers - that he regrets not being as supportive as possible for his teammates last September when the team failed to make the playoffs. Lester - criticized for eating fried chicken during games - said he plans on making more of an effort on being in the dugout late in games he doesn't pitch.

"I think the biggest thing is I'm ready to move on from it," Lester said. "I've learned from it. It's something I'm not proud of. The biggest thing is you learn from your mistakes. And I'm looking forward to starting new this year and being [a] leader. Just being a better teammate, being on the bench. The starting pitchers do have a lot of stuff to do during the games because the position players take priority.

"We stunk, I stunk and Tampa Bay was better and that's basically how it was. You put that in your filing bank."

Bobby V on Beckett, Lester: Fantastic attitude

FORT MYERS -- On the first day of pitchers and catchers working out, new Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said he's been very impressed with the work ethic of Josh Beckett and Jon Lester, two central figures in last year's clubhouse controversy. Valentine said both pitchers have shown him early on that they can be leaders, capable of putting 2011 behind them.

"I tell you what, if they lead by example as much as they've by example in the last few days, that's enough," Valentine said. "What I've seen right now is plenty. If they don't pull back on the throttle any in what they're doing, I wouldn't ask for anything more.

"I'm still looking forward to seeing it. Up close and personal, it's been a great start. Just my observation, I don't want to say they've met expectation, but my observation has been a very pleasant observation. I like what I've seen."

Most importantly to Valentine, he said the leadership from Beckett...

Bobby V: 'I'm concerned about the attitude'

FORT MYERS -- In a press conference that lasted over 27 minutes, Bobby Valentine opened spring training by acknowledging the major questions he faces about his team in 2012, his first as Red Sox manager. 

"At the start of the season, you have all questions," Valentine said. "You have questions about how the team will come together, how the pitching staff will work with the catchers and how the lineup will look and work together. I'd say we have all questions, and questions of good health, too."

"As far as positions, we have a vacancy at shortstop, we have a vacancy in right field, right now Carl's health is of question for maybe opening day, and opening day of spring training, so we'll deal with left field. A couple of spots in our starting rotation and a couple of spots in our bullpen have open spots also. Personnel, those are the questions that need answers and the general idea of all the things coming together need...

Curry paces Harvard in win over Yale

Brandyn Curry scored 18 points and Harvard completed a season sweep of Yale with a 66-51 victory Saturday night at Lavietes Pavilion.

Keith Wright contributed 10 points and eight rebounds for the Crimson (23-3, 9-1 Ivy League), who won their 27th consecutive home game -- the second-longest streak in the nation.

Greg Mangano, who leads the league in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots, had 22 points and 11 rebounds for Yale (17-7, 7-3).

The last time these teams met, Feb. 27 in New Haven, Harvard cruised to a 30-point victory. So when Mangano started the game by stuffing Keith Wright and then hitting a jumper at the other end, the Bulldogs were fired up.

However, Harvard quickly responded, taking a 14-point lead midway through the period helped by eight points from McNally. A baseline runner by Curry with four minutes left in the half pushed the lead to 20 at 35-15. Yale then closed the period on an 11-0 run, capped by...
