Clemens to pitch to son in HR derby

Roger Clemens is expected to pitch to his son, Koby, on Wednesday in the Home Run Derby before the Texas League All-Star Game in Midland. 

 

Clemens last pitched in the major leagues for the Yankees in 2007. The seven-time Cy Young award winner has been the center of a steroid controversy and is currently being investigated by a federal grand jury for perjury pertaining to his testimony during a February 2008 congressional hearing. 

 

Koby Clemens, a first baseman for the Houston Astros' Double-A club in Corpus Christi, is second in the Texas League with 16 HR and 53 RBI.

Remy on D&C: Beltre 'An All-Star' this season

NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning. Remy talked about the injury to Dustin Pedroia, who is expected to be out up to six weeks with a broken left foot.

 

"He's the guy that's out there grinding away every day, and on top of that he's a great player," Remy said. "You can't go six weeks without him without missing him. They are going to miss him."

 

Pedroia is just one of several key members of the Red Sox to miss time with injuries. Remy was asked about the number of players that have been forced to the sideline.

 

"It's been a disaster," said Remy. "One after another since the beginning of the season. It's been amazing to me, watching this team, how they have been able to fill in the gaps and get the job done and be a game behind the Yankees as we head into July. Guys have really stepped it up and...

Ortiz: '(Sox) going to be fine? I don't know'

David Ortiz, whose three-run homer in the fifth inning helped propel the Red Sox to an 8-5 win over Tampa Bay Tuesday night at Fenway Park, issued a warning regarding the absence of Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, and Victor Martinez."I'm not saying we're going to be OK because you're talking about two players [Pedroia, Martinez] who are everyday players and two guys who are going to be hard to replace ... Hopefully we're fine without them, but you know replacing Pedey is going to be a bitch. I'm not going to lie to you about that. Replacing Victor, that's not an easy thing to do. No question about it. Are we going to be fine? I don't know. Hopefully. Hopefully. You're talking about two of our best hitters. You've got the top of the lineup … out!"

 

Following the game, Ortiz reminded reporters that he will remain optimistic as the Red Sox' key players come back from their respective injuries. "Should I be negative?...

Chiarelli: B's could make 'a couple' of trades

Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli was a guest on the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning and touched on several topics, including the upcoming free agent season, which begins at noon on Thursday. Chiarelli was asked if the Bruins were looking to add another big-name player via free agency.

 

"I don't know if you'll see us go after any premier, well in fact I do, we won't go after any premier guys," said Chiarelli. "We feel that we've added two premier players in Nathan Horton and Tyler Seguin in the last week or so. What you might see from us is another trade or two. These trades are around free agency period and happen because teams are deciding how to spend their money. I've had a couple of conversations with teams. You might see a couple of trades on our part."

 

Tyler Seguin, the second overall pick of the 2010 NHL Draft, comes to Boston with huge expectations. Chiarelli did...
