Gammons: A lot decided next eight weeks

Making his weekly appearance on The Big Show, Peter Gammons said that he believes "a lot will be decided in the next eight weeks" regarding the Red Sox, Yankees, and Rays. Gammons suggested that all three teams have issues that could derail them, with the Yankees' age, the Rays' youth, and the Sox' designated hitter conundrum all serving as possible obstacles. "All three teams have a lot of questions to be answered between now and the end of July," the Hall of Famer said. Gammons said that there is an argument to be made that Yankees' outfielder Brett Gardner is comparable with Jacoby Ellsbury of the Red Sox, and that the Sox showed interest in acquiring pitcher Javier Vazquez from Atlanta prior to the Yankees scooping him up last offseason.

 

Gammons noted that after talking with some with the Yankees it is believed that Mariano Rivera might be able to pitch in the three-game series at Fenway Park, although it is unlikely...

Tito: Cameron 'doing well'

Terry Francona said on Friday that center fielder Mike Cameron, out since April 18 with an abdominal tear, could be ready to begin a rehab assignment next week.

 

 

“Cam is doing well," said Francona. "He’ll go out there today and go through his progressions again, the hitting and the group and everything. He will sit tonight with the medical people – [Dr.] Tom Gill will be here – it's probably getting to the point where we are talking about going to play some games on rehab, possibly at the beginning of the week.”

Lackey: Criticism of Ortiz 'eye-opening'

Red Sox pitcher John Lackey called in to The Big Show Friday afternoon and talked about beating his former team in his last outing. "You want to beat your boys about as much as anything," he said of Wednesday's win over the Angels.

 

Asked why the Angels did not meet the Red Sox' offer when Lackey was a free agent, he said the team did make "a run" at retaining him. "The money was around the same, honestly," he said. "It was more so I might have gotten an extra year over here. I was in a situation where I had two great options. And I chose to come out here. My wife -- it was kind of a family decision. We wanted a new challenge, to move on and check something new out."

 

Lackey said Boston fans have lived up to their reputation since he's been here. "We were talking about it in the clubhouse the other night," he said. "It's a different vibe every night. Over there, people...

Dr. Garber says, “A visit to the Cancer Genetics and Prevention Clinic usually includes time with both a physician and a genetic counselor, both of whom have expertise in all forms of inherited cancer syndromes. We educate patients about cancer risk and its implications for them and their family members. Working with referring physicians, we design individualized programs to monitor for the earliest signs of cancer — diagnosing if it occurs, and, in many cases, preventing it from arising.”
