Cop who offended Crawford could be fired

The Leominster police officer who directed a racial slur at Red Sox outfielder Carl Crawford before a minor league game in Manchester, N.H., should be fired, the Leominster police chief recommended at a hearing Wednesday.

Police chief Robert Healey said John Perreault has made other racially charged "repugnant comments" on at least two occasions and repeatedly violated department standards.

"What I uncovered is a disturbing pattern of behavior by Officer Perreault," Healey said, according to WCVB-TV. "Termination is appropriate discipline."

Perreault, who has been on paid leave, will learn his fate within 48 hours, as that's the time frame the city's mayor has to make a decision.

A internal investigation determined that...

Olney on M&M: Sox will 'stay pat' at deadline

ESPN MLB analyst Buster Olney joined Mut & Merloni for his weekly appearance on Wednesday afternoon, saying the Red Sox will not make a move before July 31.

"I'm sure they're making their calls and seeing what the value with some of these deals are," Olney said. "As long as they're in the no-man's land they're going to sit and stay pat."

Added Olney: "We talked a couple weeks ago about [Matt] Garza, well he's not really an option at this point. And Josh Johnson might be out there with the Marlins, they would ask for something significant in return, but part of the big reason for getting Josh Johnson is you can control him for this year and try to win this year as well to have him next year. It doesn't make any sense where the Red Sox are to do that. The guys that they have now have to play better before anybody who comes in would actually help."

Two of the players who aren't performing well are Jon Lester...

Sox explored trading for, flipping Hanley

According to a major league source, the Red Sox did have some conversations in recent days with the Marlins about acquiring infielder Hanley Ramirez, but the team's interest was chiefly in the possibility of shipping the 28-year-old elsewhere in order to address areas of need.

The Sox did feel that the former NL batting champion, Rookie of the Year and MVP runner-up could benefit from a change of scenery. However, given that Ramirez is no longer viewed as a viable defensive shortstop and that the Sox have committed to Will Middlebrooks at third base, the one-time Sox prospect (traded in 2005 as the centerpiece of the package that netted Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell) represented what the source deemed an "awkward fit" for the Red Sox right now, thus limiting their interest in him to the possibility of acquiring him and sending him elsewhere.

Ramirez is hitting .246 with a .322 OBP, a .430 slugging mark, a .752 OPS, 14 homers and 14...

Ortiz receives clearance to remove boot

In a text message to WEEI.com, Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz wrote that he received clearance to remove the protective boot from his right foot Tuesday and will have his strained Achilles tendon re-evaluated Friday with the hope of swinging a bat this weekend.

Ortiz, who injured his Achilles July 16 while running home on Adrian Gonzalez' home run, is eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list Aug. 1. He did not accompany the team to Texas but will join the Sox when they play the Yankees in New York starting Friday.

During the stretch Ortiz has been out, the Red Sox are 24th in the major leagues in OPS (.669).
