Lester, Sox continue to pound O's

After belting two homers on Friday, J.D. Drew had three more hits and Kevin Youkilis drilled a long two-run homer and drove in three runs as the Red Sox beat the Orioles, 9-3, at Fenway Park. David Ortiz also had three hits and an RBI in the victory, Boston's 12th in their last 16 games. 

 

The run support was more than enough for Jon Lester [10-3], who joined Clay Buchholz as a 10-game winner on the Red Sox staff. Lester, who allowed just one run and five hits over seven innings, improved to a perfect 12-0 in 15 career starts against the hapless Orioles. 

 

The Red Sox improved to a season-best 17 games over .500 at 49-32 as they reached the halfway mark of the season. Since starting the season 4-9, the Red Sox are 45-23, the best mark in the majors. They remain a half-game behind the Yankees in the American League East.

Polian on issues facing Brady, Manning talks

Speaking on the Fenway Park field prior to the Red Sox' game against the Orioles Saturday night, Bill Polian, the president of the Indianapolis Colts, spoke on what might await teams such as the Colts and Patriots when it comes to the challenges that will come with attempting to re-sign their superstar quarterbacks.

 

Polian noted having to commit a significant amount of financial resources to a top tier quarterback -- such as Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, both of whom are heading into the final years of their respective contracts -- will inevitably have some bearing on teams' the ability to construct a team. But Polian also points out that the level of impact won't be entirely known until a new collective bargaining agreement is put in place.

 

"It's bound to have some affect," Polian told WEEI.com. "What we don't know is what the system is going forward. It makes it really difficult working out a deal that...

Delcarmen after good news: 'I can sleep now'

The Red Sox received good news Saturday on the right forearm of Manny Delcarmen when an MRI showed no structural damage. 

 

"Structurally, it came out really good," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. "Even the amount of swelling is not as much as they expected so it's strictly musculature. We'll keep him down for a few days and then we'll start maybe [have him] throw a couple of bullpens maybe Friday and Sunday before the break and hopefully, that'll do the trick." 

 

Delcarmen was placed on the disabled list on Friday and will not be active until after the All-Star break. He said he expects to throw from 60 and 90 feet Tuesday, eyeing a side session Saturday or Sunday. The reliever then hopes to execute one more bullpen after the All-Star break before returning to action. It is a timetable Delcarmen accepts with open arms, especially after having to experience the agony of rehabbing from...

Sox unsure of next start for Buchholz

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said the team plans to run more tests on Clay Buchholz before allowing him to make his next scheduled start, either Monday or Tuesday, against Tampa Bay. Buchholz strained his left hamstring while running the bases last weekend against San Francisco. 

 

On Saturday at Fenway, Buchholz threw 90 feet on flat ground in hopes of being ready to make his next start. Francona indicated he doesn't need to throw off a mound to be cleared to start but needs to be able to field his position. 

 

"What we've kind of come to is that if he pitches on Monday he's going to have to be as close to 100 percent as he can be," Francona said. "We're going to run him through some more stuff and ... we're not going to pitch him if we're not completely sure so we'll see. The pitching part has actually been the easiest for him. I think the moving around and fielding his position is where we...
