Valentine: Pedroia to DL, Ortiz 'real deal'
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine joined Pete Sheppard and Steve Buckley on The Big Show Friday to discuss Dustin Pedroia's injury and the rest of the team. 

The Red Sox are set to place Dustin Pedroia on the disabled list with a right injury, which Valentine confirmed. The Sox will call up infielder Pedro Ciriaco from Triple-A Pawtucket. 

"We've had a hand issue with Dustin, and it's revolved around the thumb for the good part of the month. This is not related to the other injury, but it's a disabling situation so he's going to take the 15 days -- and four of those days thankfully are All-Star break days -- to try to get better and come back to us healthy and ready to go."

The team made room for Ciriaco on the 40-man roster by moving Rich Hill to the 60-day disabled list. 

Valentine was asked about David Ortiz' comments in the media over the last few weeks, as he criticized the media and atmosphere around the...

Agent optimistic Green stays with Celtics

Agent David Falk expressed optimism that he would reach a deal with the Celtics regarding his client, Jeff Green.

"Jeff has always had a goal to return to Boston," said Falk, who added that he was "optimistic" a new deal would be reached, although probably not until next week. Contracts can't be officially signed until Wednesday, July 11.

Green missed all of last season after having surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm. Before his condition was detected, he had reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Celtics that would have paid him $9 million. Sports Illustrated reported that a new deal could be "in the neighborhood" of $40 million over four years.

Schilling denies company stonewalled audit

Curt Schilling defended himself Friday following reports that Rhode Island officials were concerned that the former Red Sox pitcher was not cooperating with the state's attempts to get more information about financial problems at Schilling's failed video game company, 38 Studios, before the company filed for bankruptcy in June.

Earlier this week, Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee said 38 Studios was "stonewalling" after it missed a loan payment in May.

"It was so hard to get information from them," Chafee told The Associated Press. "Nothing was forthcoming. There were so many mixed messages. Everything kept changing."

Schilling, accusing Rhode Island's Economic Development Corp. of trying to "bully and intimidate," wrote Friday on Facebook: "We were working 24/7 for over 6 weeks to resolve issues that never should have arisen, meeting with deaf and dumb silence, intentional by the way, at every...

Mashup: Youk shines again, Papelbon falters

A couple of former Red Sox players are in the news for opposite results from Thursday night. In Chicago, Kevin Youkilis continued to deliver key hits for the first-place White Sox, while in New York, Jonathan Papelbon said, "This one's on me," after blowing a save for the last-place Phillies.

Youkilis completed a memorable first homestand at U.S. Cellular Field as a member of the White Sox, as he hit a game-winning home run in the sixth inning for a 2-1 victory and series sweep of the Rangers.

Youkilis is batting .307 with two home runs and 10 RBIs in his 10 games with the White Sox, even though he claims he hasn't found his comfort zone in his new home.

"I haven't gotten too good of a feel for [U.S. Cellular Field] yet, but hopefully the ball keeps jumping," he said.

Papelbon, who left Boston as a free agent after last season, entered his team's game in the ninth inning with a 5-4 lead but allowed two runs as the...
