Bruins vice president Cam Neely called in to The Big Show on Monday afternoon to to talk about the Bruins' collapse in the Eastern Conference semifinals and discuss the future of the club with offseason personnel decisions looming. "We’re going to look top to bottom," Neely said. "Obviously, when you don’t win the last game of the hockey season, you have to improve your club, so we’re looking at all ways at doing what we need to do to improve the club."
Added Neely: "I think over the course of this next week, we’re going to sit down as a group and really just evaluate the whole season. I don’t think we should just look at it in this one little snapshot because the year as a whole didn’t go quite the way we had planned or expected."
Neely said he's still reeling from the Game 7 disaster. "Oh, it hit hard," he said. "It hit...
NEW YORK -- Speaking before his team's game with the Yankees at Yankee Stadium, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that outfielder Mike Cameron is still experiencing some "tenderness" in his abdominal region, although not in the same spot that forced the 37-year-old on to the disabled list. Because of Cameron's condition he won't be activated to the Sox' 25-man roster and will most likely make another rehab appearance, at Double A Portland Wednesday.
"There was certainly some thought about bringing him here today, possibly even getting him on our roster," Francona said. "I don't think we think he's quite ready, and I think he agrees with that. He's tender a little bit in his abdominal region, not where he got hurt, just kind of tender. He's done a lot of work and I think we just want to make sure when we bring him off he's ready. We're not quite there yet."
As for the Red Sox other...

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury started a minor league rehab assignment by hitting leadoff and serving as the designated hitter for the Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox on Monday. After a pair of three-pitch groundouts (one to second, one to short) in his first two plate appearances, Ellsbury delivered an RBI single on the first pitch of his third at-bat to drive in a run in the bottom of the sixth inning. Ellsbury advanced to third on an error by Syracuse left fielder Leonard Davis, then scored on a sac fly.
Each of Ellsbury's first three at-bats came against right-handed Chiefs starter J.D. Martin. Syracuse summoned left-handed reliever Atahualpa Severino to face Ellsbury in the seventh inning. Ellsbury took all six pitches that Severino threw en route to a full-pitch walk. He then raced around from first on a two-run triple by teammate Josh Reddick (who was thrown out at the plate, trying to stretch his hit to an inside-the-park homer)....

How can teams acquire players who are entering their primes without having to live through the potentially massive transition of prospects coming from the minors to the big leagues? The Red Sox have two such case studies. The signing of Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo represents one effort to acquire a player for his prime years for whom the transition to big league-caliber competition might not be turbulent. Red Sox assistant director of player personnel discusses the scouting process involved with landing Castillo. The episode also features Brock Holt, the one rookie who played at a consistently high level for the Red Sox this year. Holt explores some of the distinctions that might help to explain why he did not experience some of the struggles that characterized the seasons of Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr.
