SI's Banks on D&C: Saints went too far

Sports Illustrated NFL writer Don Banks joined Dennis & Callahan Monday morning to talk about the bounty scandal that has gripped the league. Former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has admitted to organizing a program in which players were rewarded for inflicting game-ending injuries on key opponents.

"I was not stunned or shocked, [but] I thought the width and breadth of this was surprising," Banks said. "And I though the fact that it went on as long as it did, it was so established, and a coach would be as brazen as Gregg Williams was in the Saints' Saturday night defensive meetings. Because there's so much player movement in the league these days, all it takes is one guy to end up on a team that's an opponent and talk. That's what surprised me, that it would be so organized. I thought a lot of teams probably had something loosely based on this idea. But the Saints went further."

Banks said he wouldn't be...

Mashup: Sox sexual abuse scandal widens

Eight more men have come forward to join the group that has accused former Red Sox clubhouse manager Donald J. Fitzpatrick of sexual abuse. Fitzpatrick, who died in 2005 at age 76 while serving a 10-year suspended sentence for attempting to sexually assault youths at spring training in Florida, has been accused by more than 20 men of sexually abusing them between the 1960s and '90s.

A Boston Globe report indicates the eight recent accusers are seeking $5 million each from the Red Sox. Two of the accusers are former Orioles batboys who also are suing the Orioles for allegedly failing to prevent the abuse at the park in Baltimore.

"The evidence indicates Donald Fitzpatrick sexually abused children in Massachusetts, Maryland, and Florida," said Boston lawyer Mitchell Garabedian, who represents 10 recent accusers. "The question arises, where else? We believe this is the tip of the iceberg."

The Red Sox released the...

Miller stands out in Sox' win over Twins

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Andrew Miller threw two impressive innings and Lars Anderson launched a seventh-inning grand slam as the Red Sox claimed an 8-3 win over the Twins Saturday in the teams' Grapefruit League opener before 8,886 at JetBlue Park.

Miller followed up starter Josh Beckett's two innings (1 hit, 2 walks, 36 pitches) by striking out three and not allowing a hit over a pair of frames. The big lefty, who is in the running for the final spot in the rotation, has been working on not throwing across his body as much as years past, while also starting from a different position on the pitching rubber.

"A lot of people had been tinkering and I thought at the beginning of the spring we needed to have one voice getting into his head, and [pitching coach] Bob [McClure] has done a very good job of getting a consensus, which we got from the first day we looked at him, and staying with it," Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said of Miller.

Electric: C's win OT classic over Knicks

Rajon Rondo finished with an amazing 18 points, 20 assists and 17 rebounds to lead the Celtics to a thrilling 115-111 overtime win against the Knicks Sunday afternoon at TD Garden. Paul Pierce's off-balance 3-pointer with 4.9 seconds left in regulation forced overtime, capping an electric final three minutes in regulation that featured several lead changes, Jeremy Lin coming alive after a rough first three quarters, and a classic mano-a-mano matchup between Pierce and Carmelo Anthony. 

With all the hype over Lin, it was Rondo who stole the show through three quarters, as he recorded his 17th career triple-double. Pierce added 34 and Kevin Garnett had 18 points and 10 rebounds in a season-high 42 minutes for the Celtics. Boston won its fourth straight out of the All-Star break, improved to 19-17, and built its lead to 1.5 games over the Knicks for seventh place in the Eastern Conference.
