Red Sox ink Shealy to minor league deal

The Red Sox have signed veteran first baseman Ryan Shealy to a minor league contract. Shealy, 30, had been granted his release from the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, exercising a June 15 opt-out. Shealy, a right-handed hitter, last played in the major leagues in 2008 while with the Kansas City Royals. The former University of Florida product spent three seasons with the Royals after coming over to KC in a trade from Colorado in '06, never playing more than 52 games. In 164 major league games he has hit 19 homers with a .271 batting average and .957 OPS. The Red Sox have tried trading for Shealy in the past when he was with Colorado. FoxSports.com was first to report the transaction.

 

With Tampa Bay's Triple A team in Durham Shealy hit .238 with 10 homers and a .866 OPS. He was 8 for 40 against left-handers, although half of those...

Faxon on D&C: Tiger can contend at Open
By: Matt West

PGA Tour golfer and NBC golf analyst Brad Faxon joined the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about this weekend's U.S.Open at Pebble Beach. Faxon is optimistic about Tiger Woods' chances in the tournament. "I think he's got a real shot to contend because this course has the smallest greens in any tournament we play all year long," Faxon said. "They're so firm that a lot of guys who can't stop the ball on these greens are really going to have a hard time. He's one of the few guys that really, really can spin any shot and stop it on any green here."

 

Faxon was asked if he thought Woods might go back to his old swing, which he used to win the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach in 2000. "I'm sure he's very comfortable here," Faxon said. "He's played well here, he's won this tournament, at the U.S. Open. … He grew up in California, that fact that he's not going to have to hit 10 drivers...

Mashburn on D&C: 'This is Rondo's team'
By: Matt West

ESPN NBA analyst Jamal Mashburn joined the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to discuss Game 7 of the NBA finals. Mashburn was asked about what the Celtics can expect from Rasheed Wallace. "Rasheed has experience and he comes to play, it seems like when he wants to play, when the moment shines the brightest," Mashburn said. "Obviously, what they need from him is rebounding and defense and for him to knock down a couple of those long 3-point shots to stake the defense. ... Rasheed has to stay out of foul trouble, and he's done a pretty good job of keeping his cool even though does continue to do his antics — it looks like he never gets whistled for a foul in his life."

 

Asked if the Celtics might bring Nate Robinson off the bench early in the game, Mashburn said it's possible, but expect to see Rajon Rondo on the court when the game is on the line. "In Game 7 situations Doc [Rivers] is going to go...
