Doubront to start for Sox on Friday

Red Sox manager Terry Francona confirmed that his team plans to call up left-hander Felix Doubront on Friday from Triple-A Pawtucket to make his major league debut against the Dodgers. Doubront has a 2.11 ERA in the minors this year, having split time between Double-A Portland and Pawtucket.

 

The left-hander is already well known to the Sox. Since being added to the 40-man roster following the 2008 season, he has been in big league camp in each of the last two years, and was particularly impressive in delivering seven shutout innings this year in Grapefruit League action. He has also taken part in the Rookie Development Program in both 2009 and 2010, and he has made a formidable impression on Sox officials.

 

"He's not a finished product. He's still developing his secondary pitches. But he's got some finish on that fastball and he's not afraid to throw it," said Francona. "We've got a young kid coming...

Perkins out of Game 7 with 2 torn ligaments

LOS ANGELES -- Kendrick Perkins tore his MCL and suffered a partial tear of another ligament in his right knee in Game 6 and will not play in Game 7 Thursday.

 

"Physically, I'm in pain," Perkins announced. "I hurt my knee pretty badly. I'm out for [Thursday]. There's nothing I can do about it. A torn MCL and a torn PCL and I have to watch from the sidelines. I'd be lying if I told you if it didn't hurt but it hurt. I'll probably never get the opportunity again to get back to the finals. Physically, I'm doing better than I am mentally."

 

Perkins, who said he had yet to have an MRI on the knee, made the announcement himself as he met with the media on Wednesday afternoon at Staples Center. 

 

Perkins injured his right knee in a collision with Andrew Bynum under the Lakers basket midway through the first quarter. For more on this story as it develops, visit the ...

Neely introduced as Bruins President
By: DJ Bean

As was expected, the Bruins promoted vice president Cam Neely to president of the organization on Wednesday. Former president Harry Sinden, general manager Peter Chiarelli, and both Jeremy and Charlie Jacobs were on hand for the announcement. 

 

"There are a lot of things we want to accomplish," Neely said of the team's direction with him in charge. "First and foremost s winning the Stanley Cup and I can tell you without question that our ownership is strongly committed to bringing the Stanley Cup back to Boston."

 

Neely had 590 points in 10 seasons with the Bruins after being acquired by Sinden in 1986. 

 

"Being a player gives me another perspective," Neely said of his playing career and how it will relate to his new role. "I am a big fan of communication from coaches to players, from GMs to players, and quite frankly, ownership to players. As a player you...

Chiarelli: Bruins will not trade No. 2
By: DJ Bean

BOSTON -- Speaking at Cam Neely's introductory press conference on Wednesday, general manager Peter Chiarelli made assurances that the team will not trade down from the No. 2 spot in next Friday's NHL draft in Los Angeles and will select either Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin. 

 

 

“I’m not moving it,” Chiarelli said of the second pick, one of two first-round selections received in the Phil Kessel trade. “We’re going to take one of those two forwards." 

 
 
Believed to have the best offensive 1-2 punch since Ilya Kovalchuk and Jason Spezza led the '01 draft, Neely said he will be thrilled with whomever the Edmonton Oilers, who pick first, ultimately pass on. 
 
 
“I’ve said this to Peter,” Neely said. “We’re in a good position. I think it’s a tougher call for Edmonton...
