Schefter on D&C: Colts not best ever

ESPN's Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about the Super Bowl. Schefter said injured Colts defensive lineman Dwight Freeney might line up Sunday, but he's not going to be close to full strength. "Dwight Freeney as we know Dwight Freeney is not playing," Schefter said. "If Dwight Freeney is effective in any significant way on Sunday, I will be stunned."

 

Schefter predicted an Indianapolis victory but said the Colts should not be considered as one of the greatest teams of all-time due to the way they handled the end of the regular season. Said Schefter: "They had the chance to be in that discussion, if not lead that discussion, and they opted not be a part of it. That was their decision, not anybody else's. When they pulled their players when they could have gotten to 15-0 in a game [vs. the Jets] they were winning 15-10 when they had the ball, they waved...

Nightmare 9th: B's lose again in OT

Brian Gionta scored the clinching goal of the shootout as the Bruins were handed their ninth straight loss, 3-2 in overtime, to the Montreal Canadiens at TD Garden. The nine-game skid is just two shy of the team's all-time record from Dec. 3, 1924-Jan. 5, 1925. It also was the eighth straight home loss for the Bruins, three shy of the franchise mark also set in the 1924-25 season. The Bruins had a 4-on-3 power play for two full minutes in overtime but still couldn't score and nearly allowed a short-handed goal. The Bruins outshot the Canadiens 42-21 through three periods, and 47-25 for the game.  

 

Mark Recchi and Blake Wheeler had staked the Bruins to a 2-0 lead with goals in the first and second period, respectively. But that two-goal lead disappeared in the span of 39 seconds late in the second period. Former Bruin Glen Metropolit scored on the power play and Roman Hamrlik wristed a shot through a screen from the left circle and...

Minor Details Ep. 98: Youth without the transition - Rusney Castillo and Brock Holt

How can teams acquire players who are entering their primes without having to live through the potentially massive transition of prospects coming from the minors to the big leagues? The Red Sox have two such case studies. The signing of Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo represents one effort to acquire a player for his prime years for whom the transition to big league-caliber competition might not be turbulent. Red Sox assistant director of player personnel discusses the scouting process involved with landing Castillo. The episode also features Brock Holt, the one rookie who played at a consistently high level for the Red Sox this year. Holt explores some of the distinctions that might help to explain why he did not experience some of the struggles that characterized the seasons of Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr.
