Mashup: Jordan questions LeBron

The latest big name to express concern about LeBron James' strategy is NBA legend Michael Jordan. Said Jordan on Sunday: "There's no way, with hindsight, I would've ever called up Larry [Bird], called up Magic [Johnson] and said, 'Hey, look, let's get together and play on one team,' " Jordan said. "But that's ... things are different. I can't say that's a bad thing. It's an opportunity these kids have today. In all honesty, I was trying to beat those guys." Also in the news, one columnist calls out Seahawks coach Pete Carroll as a "shameless" liar, and Tim McCarver compares the Yankees to "despotic leaders in World War II" because of the way they've treated Joe Torre. Check out those stories, along with videos, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

Faxon on D&C: Tiger will 'take a while'

PGA Tour veteran Brad Faxon joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about Louis Oosthuizen's victory at the British Open and Tiger Woods' disappointing performance there. "I think we're going to have some peaks and valleys with Tiger's play," Faxon said of Woods' comeback. "I don't think he's anywhere where he's going to get to. I just think it's going to take a while."

 

Asked if Woods will win a tournament in 2010, Faxon said: "If you would have asked me a few months ago, I would have said yes. Now I'm thinking, I don't know if he's going to win this year."

 

While this past weekend's event did not create a great deal of interest, Faxon noted that having other players step to the forefront might not be the worst thing for the sport. "I don't think it's terrible for golf if Tiger's not the lead man all the time," he said.

Martinez plays catch for first time since injury

Victor Martinez took another step in the right direction, Sunday, playing catch for the first time since going on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left thumb May 29.

 

While it was just a very light game of toss, just the fact the catcher was able to wear a glove offered a good deal of optimism.

 

"It was a good step," Martinez said. "Obviously I was playing catch very carefully, but it's still sore. But at least I was able to put my hand in the glove, so that was a big thing."

 

Martinez, who will be making the 10-game West Coast trip with the team, still wouldn't put any timetable on his return. He has swung a bat, although taking swings from the right side continues to be somewhat uncomfortable.

 

"We'll see how it feels tomorrow. We're taking it day by day now," Martinez said. "It's definitely a lot better. That's a good thing, that it's a...

Sox plan: Beckett back Friday to face Seattle

If an extended side session goes well on Tuesday, Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced following his team's 4-2 loss to the Rangers that Josh Beckett would return to the rotation on Friday in Seattle against the Mariners. Beckett made two rehab starts for Triple-A Pawtucket and had made just eight starts this season for Boston before being put on the disabled list on May 19 with a strained lower back.

 

"As far as I’m concerned, yeah, I’m ready to start on Friday, but it’s not the end-all, be-all," said Beckett, who gave up three runs in his second rehab start on Saturday in Syracuse. 

 

Francona also announced that John Lackey would start the Mariners series on Thursday, while Jon Lester will go on Saturday.
