Marlins' Ramirez: No apology planned

Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez, benched for loafing after a ball Monday night, said he has no plans to apologize to his teammates. "We got a lot of people dogging it after ground balls," Ramirez told the press. "They don't apologize."

 

Florida manager Fredi Gonzalez held Ramirez out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's afternoon game against the visiting Diamondbacks, telling reporters: "I think he needs to talk to his teammates a little bit. Whatever feelings he has for me are fine and dandy. We don't have to get along, but I think he needs to get along with the 24 other guys on his team, and when that happens we'll run him back in there. If he sets his ego aside, I think it will be good."

 

Ramirez, a former Red Sox farmhand who went on to become one of the best players in the National League, fouled a ball off his ankle in the first inning Monday night. While in the field in the second...

Chiarelli: 'We will make some changes'

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli held a press conference on Tuesday morning at the Bruins breakdown day and said that Boston will be making some roster changes during the summer after evaluating the season with the team's professional scouts as well as coach Claude Julien and his staff. Chiarelli said that the Bruins probably would not be big players in the unrestricted free agent market come July and that the focus instead will be to infuse the roster with as much youth as possible, considering the pipeline of first-round picks coming up through the minor leagues who will get looks from the staff coming training camp in September.

 

"There were more ups and downs this year than I remember through the course of many years. That happens in this business, and as a general manager you try to keep an even keel and take away some positive things and take a look at the negative things and move forward," Chiarelli said. "I did...

Aaron Ward on D&H: B's future bright

Former Bruin Aaron Ward, who is serving as an analyst for NHL coverage on Versus, joined the Dale & Holley show Tuesday to talk about the Stanley Cup playoffs. Ward said the Bruins were in a difficult situation in their series vs. the Flyers. "It's tough to overcome the loss of your two top scorers in Marco Sturm and David Krejci. And then couple that with Philadelphia getting back Simon Gagne. That's a tough one to deal with," said Ward, who finished this season with the Anaheim Ducks.

 

Ward said Bruins fans can take solace in the fact that the future is bright for this team. "Boston's on the upswing. They've got a great situation now with the draft, they've got a great situation where they have a lot of key, young guys that have that experience in the playoffs, regular season, that familiarity with the city. And it means a lot to a team to where you can start forming some sort of consistency and looking toward becoming a...

B's Thomas: 'Too early' to dwell on offseason

Bruins goaltender and reigning Vezina Trophy winner Tim Thomas spoke about his upcoming role on the team after having been usurped for the No. 1 spot in the crease by rookie Tuukka Rask in the second half of the 2009-10 season. Thomas signed a four-year $20 million contract extension last summer and has a no-trade clause in his contract though the speculation is that general manager Peter Chiarelli will have no choice but to try and move Thomas's contract. Thomas said on Tuesday morning that there are questions that he needs to answer but it is still "too early" to start coming to any conclusions.

 

"Too early. Those kind of thoughts are something that need to be thought over carefully and over a longer period of time and I haven't had the luxury of doing that yet," Thomas said. "Even if you are not playing at the end of the year you are still practicing with the team, you are still trying to get yourself in a position...
