Thomas on departure: 'I was so mad'

For the sixth time this season, Tim Thomas was pulled from the game on Monday night after giving up three goals on 14 shots in Boston's 3-2 loss to Buffalo. Afterward, Thomas said he wasn't aware of the boos as he left the ice or the significance of the reaction from the fans. "I didn't hear it," Thomas said. "I was so mad. I don't know if they were booing me or booing the fact I was leaving the game." Bruins coach Claude Julien said he didn't feel the need to justify starting Thomas."I don't think I have to justify everything here," Julien said. "Hindsight is 20/20 so you live with the consequences." For more, including audio from Thomas and video from Thomas' Olympic teammate Ryan Miller, visit the Big Bad Blog

Beckett still not talking contract

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Following his six-inning outing against the Rays Monday night at City of Palms Park, in which he surrendered three runs (2 earned), Josh Beckett refused to address any contract-related items. 'No, I don't have anything right now," he said when asked if the pitcher wanted to address anything regarding his contract talks with six days left until Opening Day. An ESPN.com report stated Sunday that the Red Sox were unwilling to go beyond four years when talking extension with Beckett, whose contract with the Red Sox runs out at the end of the 2010 season.

 

Pitching in his final spring training game before making the Opening Day start for the Red Sox, Sunday, Beckett threw 94 pitches, striking out eight and walking one while allowing six hits. The righty allowed two home runs, to Evan Longoria and Nevin Ashley,...

Stab in the back: Sabres beat B's

Tim Thomas allowed three goals on just 14 shots and the Bruins could score just twice in 42 against Team USA's Ryan Miller as the Sabres prevailed, 3-2, on Monday night at TD Garden. David Krejci scored his 17th of the season in the first to put the Bruins up, 1-0. But the Sabres ralled behind goals from Tyler Myers, Paul Gaustad and Tim Kennedy, with the Myers and Gaustad goals both deflecting off defenseman Dennis Wideman past Thomas, who was pulled for the sixth time this season. Tuukka Rask relieved Thomas and played the remainder of the game. Rask assisted on Dennis Seidenberg's goal with just over five minutes left in the third to cut the deficit to one. The Bruins remain in the eighth and final playoff spot in the East with 80 points, two points behind Philadelphia and Montreal.

Farrell talks timeline of Tazawa injury

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell explained the timeline of the problem with Junichi Tazawa's elbow that ultimately led him to be examined by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. Monday. 

 

"He's been dealing with some discomfort, some tightness, in the second half of last year," Farrell explained. "He went through a normal offseason, didn't have any issues, came into spring training, went through every outlined throwing session that we had and there were varying degrees of tightness or discomfort at different points this spring. And then in games his velocity was not quite where it was in the past and his breaking stuff was not as sharp. And even in his last bullpen he felt there was a little bit of tightness. I wouldn't say it was further, or getting worse, but precautionary we wanted to send him to see Andrews and get that evaluation."

 

The Red Sox hadn't heard any reports...

Tazawa visits Andrews about elbow

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox pitcher Junichi Tazawa is in Birmingham, Ala. visiting with Dr. James Andrews regarding his right elbow. There were no further details released by the team at this time. Tazawa last pitched March 22 against Tampa Bay when he allowed four runs on four hits over one inning. The 23-year-old had appeared in five games this spring, giving up eight runs on 10 hits over seven innings.

 

Tazawa had impressed the Red Sox early on in camp after showing a remarkable amount of poise when called up to the big league club last August. The righty pitcher, who came to the Sox from a Japanese industrial league team, appeared in six games with the Red Sox in '09, making four starts and finishing with a 2-3 mark and a 7.46 ERA. His first major league outing came on Aug. 7 when was called upon to pitch the 14th inning against New York at Yankee Stadium.
