Buchholz on D&C: 'Do my job'

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz called in from spring training in Fort Myers, Fla., to talk with Dennis & Callahan on Wednesday morning. Buchholz discussed fighting for a spot in the Sox' rotation, saying: "If I go out and do my job and do what I can to make this team better ... I think that everything will take care of itself."

 

Buchholz was asked about being on a good team and how that has limited his opportunities to pitch in the majors. Said Buchholz: "I have two years in the big leagues, I probably could have four or five, really, if the Red Sox weren't who they were. From a money standpoint, it's a little hard. But playing for the team, and the atmosphere you get every time you play in a Red Sox uniform, I don't think there's anything like it. So, there's a tradeoff there. But I definitely felt like it has crossed my mind before."

 

Buchholz talked about switching from No. 61 to 11 for...

Mashup: Did McNabb throw up?

Lowell likely to stay with Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Despite the fact the Rangers will again have a scout in attendance to watch Mike Lowell at the Red Sox' spring training game against the Orioles in Sarasota Wednesday, sources familiar with the situation indicate that any interest Texas may have in acquiring Lowell is tempered by their reluctance to allocate any substantial amount of money to a player who would be filling a reserve role.

 

Whereas Texas viewed it worth the $3 million and a young player (Max Ramirez) to occupy a designated hitter/first base spot on its roster before the Sox' infielder failed the Rangers' physical, the acquisition of Vladimir Guerrero negated that dynamic. What would be left for Lowell if acquired by the Rangers is a back-up role, which would include insurance/mentoring for young first baseman Chris Davis, leading to the Rangers to ask the Red Sox to potentially pick up almost all of the 36-year-old's $12.5 million this season. According to a...

URI comes up short in NIT semis

The University of Rhode Island's NIT run came to an end Tuesday night with a 68-67 overtime loss to North Carolina in the semifinals at Madison Square Garden. Deon Thompson had 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Tar Heels, who will play Dayton in Thursday's championship game. Keith Cothran had a game-high 23 points for the Rams (26-10).

 

The game ended with a little controversy, as URI's Lamonte Ulmer grabbed a rebound with five seconds left and started heading upcourt for a final shot. But he fell after a Carolina player rolled into his legs, and the ball rolled harmlessly away as time expired. Both coaches said they felt a foul should have been called.

Holy Cross also seeks new coach

Boston College isn't the only area team looking for a new basketball coach. Holy Cross fired Sean Kearney on Tuesday after just one season at the Worcester school. Kearney, who took over after Ralph Willard departed to become an assistant under Rick Pitino at Louisville, guided the Crusaders to a disappointing 9-22 record, setting a school record for losses in a season. Holy Cross finished seventh in the Patriot League with a 5-9 record.

 

“This was a very difficult decision,” Holy Cross athletic director Dick Regan said in a release. “This is also an affirmation of how important basketball is at Holy Cross. At the end of the day, after assessing the results and evaluating what our prospects were for the future, we felt this was a move we had to make. We have an obligation to our student-athletes to deliver the best possible experience for them while they are at Holy Cross.”

 

Kearney came to Holy...
