Papelbon: 'I don't trust radar guns'

When asked about the 105 mph fastball reportedly thrown by Reds rookie Aroldis Chapman last Friday, Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon said during his team's recent series against the Rays, "I've seen it," citing the time he clocked then-Detroit minor-leaguer Joel Zumaya throwing 104 mph during a Florida State League game in 2004. "I used to always calibrate our gun just to make sure," Papelbon explained. "I started and Lester started so I always had Lester's velocity as well. Zumaya was consistently 101 to 104." Chapman was clocked at close to 104 mph Wednesday night.

 

Papelbon then went on to explain that radar gun readings shouldn't be the be-all and end-all when analyzing fastballs, saying that he has a more accurate idea of how hard he is throwing than any radar run reading taken in a stadium.

 

 

"I can tell you exactly, within an a mile an hour what that fastball is...

Billick: No downside doing 'Hard Knocks'

Former Baltimore Ravens head coach, and current Fox Sports analyst, Brian Billick weighed in on the latest edition of HBO's 'Hard Knocks' featuring the New York Jets, saying, "I don't think there is a big downside for them." Billick's Ravens team was the first to participate in the network's show, which follows one NFL team each season through the preseason. (For a running diary of the latest episode of 'Hard Knocks' click here.)

 

Billick also touched on how what the Patriots' mind-set might be heading into their final preseason game, Thursday night against the Giants.

Varitek: 'I'm ready to go'

BALTIMORE — Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek, following an examination of his left foot by Dr. George Theodore on Wednesday, said that he expects that he will be cleared to play following a CT scan on Friday. Barring an unexpected development, Varitek — who has been out since a foul ball broke the appendage on June 30 — believes he will be green-lighted for rehab games this weekend, following a return to the Red Sox.

 

“Honestly, I don’t really have much of a doubt right now. I’m ready to go,” said Varitek. “I wouldn’t feel the way I feel and be able to do what I’ve been able to do if I wasn’t. … I’ve just got to pass the CT scan, and then they give me the go-ahead and let me go. I’m ready.”

 

Varitek had been enjoying a strong first half at the time of his injury. He was hitting .263 with a .324 OBP, .547 slugging mark and .871...
