Millar on M&M: Boston 'greatest place to play'

MLB Network analyst Kevin Millar joined Mut & Merloni on Friday morning and weighed in on the latest Red Sox controversy.

"This whole story, this whole stuff, this whole season's growing tiresome. It really is," the former Sox first baseman said. "There's a story every single week about something coming out."

Added Millar: "It's tiresome. I'm so sick of addressing Red Sox drama. I would love to see these men take the field with some passion and some love and some pride, and get their heads out of their you-know-what and fight for this playoff run. This season's not over, but the problem is we're so concerned about the next stupid story, the next guy that's walking in the clubhouse with a beer. Who cares? Somebody need to toe it up, though, and man up and cowboy up and get in the batter's box and drive a two-run double with two outs tonight. That's what's important, is this group finding a way to get back on track. But...

Fan dies after collapsing during Jays game

A fan collapsed and died during Thursday night's game between the Blue Jays and White Sox in Toronto. White Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis alerted umpires upon seeing a commotion in the stands, and the game was stopped for four minutes in the bottom of the seventh inning while the fan -- identified by the Toronto Star as a 60-year-old man -- received CPR and was taken out on a stretcher.

"It was not a good sight. It was bad. I could see the guy pumping on him, doing something where I just knew it was happening too long," Youkilis told reporters. "I said something to [umpire Mark Wegner] and finally I was like, 'We’ve got to stop this thing.'

"It puts it in perspective, you know? This is a game, it’s not life or death."

The game was halted and the fan was carted off through the left-...

Mashup: Sanchez takes control of huddle

Much of the chatter from Jets camp is how Mark Sanchez is coming into his own. This makes sense, of course, Sanchez is entering his fourth season as a quarterback and has ample playoff experience to go along with it. What irks me is that many of these columns don't address those factors. Instead, most look at habits I'd expect my starting quarterback to have before Year 4. For example, last week we read about how Sanchez has improved his offseason work ethic as if it was this huge accomplishment. Friday, word is Sanchez is finally comfortable holding others accountable. 

Writes Rich Cimini of ESPN New York:

Sanchez called this "probably my most consistent camp," noting he has dramatically reduced his turnovers -- a bugaboo from last season. He also has demonstrated a take-charge attitude, claiming he's more comfortable as a vocal leader, especially with the young wide receivers.

"When you come in the huddle,...

Lucchino: Sox brand has 'taken a few hits'

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox CEO and president Larry Lucchino, speaking at Camden Yards prior to Thursday night's Red Sox win over the Orioles, acknowledged that the "brand" of the Red Sox franchise has suffered in recent years, owing in no small part to the fact that the team has failed to make the playoffs since 2009. However, he vowed that the Sox would repair their image.

"Every franchise, every brand goes through roguh times. No one is immune to the hills and valleys. We’ve had a long run of success. We’ve created very high expectations for the franchise. Sometimes those high expectations are not met, and the result is a reduction, a hit to the brand and to the team and to the fan base. If it’s broke, we’ll fix it," said Lucchino, who was joined by principal owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner in Baltimore after flying from the owners meetings in Denver. "So much of the brand is a reflection of the...

Buchholz continues hot streak, beats O's

BALTIMORE -- The Red Sox avoided a Camden Yards sweep, beating the Orioles, 6-3, in the teams' series finale Thursday night.

Key the Red Sox' win were an offense that pounded out 13 hits -- led by Cody Ross' three-hit night -- and another stellar pitching performance from starter Clay Buchholz. The righty went eight innings, giving up three runs on eight hits, striking out seven and walking three.

The outing brought Buchholz' ERA down to 1.53 over his last six starts, and 4.19 for the season. 

While Baltimore was able to jump out to a 3-1 lead after two innings, thanks in part to Mark Reynolds' solo home run in the second, the Red Sox bounced back to two runs in the fifth and three in the sixth. Besides Ross, others helping pace the Red Sox' attack were the team's No. 2, 3 and 4 hitters, Carl Crawford, Dustin Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez, who all had two hits apiece.

Also coming away with a multiple-hit game for the Red Sox -- who...
