Neely: Expect Seguin 'to make team' in 2010

Boston Bruins president Cam Neely was a guest of the Dale & Holley show Monday and talked about a variety of topics, including the selection of center Tyler Seguin with the second overall pick of the 2010 NHL Draft. Neely was asked if he expected Seguin to be the roster for Boston when the 2010 season begins.

 

"I'd be surprised if he doesn't," said Neely. "We are certainly counting on him to make our team, based on everything that I've been hearing from scouts. He should be able to make our lineup next year and it's a matter of what kind of impact he's going to have. But he should be able to make our lineup."

 

The Bruins made a trade just a few days prior to last Friday's draft, moving the 15th overall pick and veteran defenseman Dennis Wideman to the Florida Panthers in exchange for forwards Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell. Neely feels that Horton, five times a 20-goal scorer, will be a good fit...

Mashup: A-Rod finally talks to Torre

After two days of ignoring the Dodgers manager, Alex Rodriguez decided to try to make things better with Joe Torre, so he approached the former Yankees skipper before Sunday night’s game in Los Angeles and shared a brief conversation. Said A-Rod: “I thought it was important for me to go over there. I thought it was the mature thing to do. I felt in my heart it was important to not let things linger, to build on what I’ve tried to build here the last two years.” Responded Torre: “I was glad we got a chance to shake hands.” Meanwhile, in Tampa, teammates Evan Longoria and B.J. Upton did not have quite as pleasant an exchange when Longoria blasted Upton for coasting after a ball in the outfield. Read about those stories, plus the controversy with the Cubs and the Tigers getting hurt by another bad call, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

LEEInks: 10 key Boston sports injuries

The Red Sox have suffered some costly injuries this season — over the weekend, second baseman Dustin Pedroia, pitcher Clay Buchholz and catcher Victor Martinez joined the current slew of Sox players who are sidelined. While the amount of time these players will sit still is in question, their efforts surely will be missed no matter how long they are out. Those three were costly injuries, but they probably won't crack our compilation of 10 key injuries in Boston sports history. Check the LEEInks blog for the complete list.

Victor Martinez breaks left thumb

Red Sox catcher Victor Martinez broke his left thumb in Sunday's win over the Red Sox, the third injury to a high-profile player for Boston in as many days.

 

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia broke his left foot Friday night and starting pitcher Clay Buchholz left his start saturday after just one inning with a hyperextended left knee.

 

Martinez took a pair of foul tips off his thumb Sunday, and was replaced by Jason Varitek in the fourth inning. An X-ray was taken and the fracture was revealed.

 

Terry Francona said after the game that "it's not a given" that the All-Star catcher would go on the disabled list. Martinez told the media that he did not think he would end up on the DL.

 

Martinez will be re-examined on Monday.

Lester goes the distance in win

In a battle of aces Jon Lester came on top, leading the Red Sox to a 5-1 win over the Giants in the teams series finale, Sunday at AT&T Park in San Francisco. With the Sox' bullpen having been taxed the night before, Lester went the distance, notching his second complete game of the season (and sixth for his career). The lefty allowed just one, first-inning run, striking out nine while limiting the Giants to five hits. He retired 17 of the last 18 San Francisco hitters.

 

San Francisco starter Tim Lincecum went just three innings -- tying his career low -- allowing four runs on five hits while walking three and striking out four in a 79-pitch outing. David Ortiz got things off on the right foot against last season's National League starter in the All-Star Game, launching a solo home run into McCovey Cove beyond the right field wall. It was just the sixth home run allowed by Lincecum this season.
