Gammons: Sox should spend on pen
By: DJ Bean

Hall of Fame baseball analyst Peter Gammons joined the Big Show on Friday and shed some light on what the future may hold for the Red Sox. 

 

Gammons pointed to the organization's young outfielders as one of its brightest spots and a big reason as to why the Sox might not have to spend much at the position come free agency.

 

"I don't believe for a second that they're going to sign Carl Crawford," Gammons said, adding that he felt the Rays outfielder is likely destined for the Yankees or the Angels.

 

On the subject of pitching, Gammons cited the stability in the rotation as a reason to open up the check book on relievers. Though he didn't think it would have been wise for the team to trade a sizable package for Blue Jays reliever Scott Downs, he did say that in the offseason they can spend on the bullpen given that they are paying below market value for two of the game's best starters in...

Light: Teams will be 'gunning for' Jets
By: DJ Bean

Making his weekly appearance on The Big Show, Patriots tackle Matt Light admitted that he has seen very little of "Hard Knocks," the popular NFL Films show documenting the Jets that airs Wednesdays on HBO. 

 

Light said that he caught his first glimpse of the show on Friday, when he saw a re-run of the most recent episode, which featured the Jets negotiating with quarterback Kellen Clemens over whether or not to release the player. 

 

"I really don't like watching that," Light said of watching players getting cut or asked to take paycuts. "We see it enough in our world."

 

Asked what impact the show will have on the season, Light gave the Patriots' AFC East rivals credit for making it to the conference championship last season, but suggested a target could be placed on the Jets for all of their preseason attention. 

 

They're definitely going...

Pedroia has surgery
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox have announced that second baseman Dustin Pedroia had season-ending surgery on Friday, a procedure that consisted of having a pin inserted in his injured left foot. Dr. George Theodore and Dr. Tom Gill at Massachusetts General Hospital performed the operation. 

 

Pedroia fractured the navicular bone in his left foot on a foul ball June 25 against the Giants. He has had two stints on the DL as a result, with his return last month consisting of just two games at Fenway vs. the Angels.
