Ex-Patriot Tatupu dead at 54

Former Patriots running back Mosi Tatupu, a popular player during his tenure in New England from 1978-90, died Tuesday at his Massachusetts home at the age of 54. According to a report in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, Tatupu had been dealing with high-blood pressure and other problems. "He had some health issues," family friend Barry Markowitz told the newspaper. Markowitz said he had been informed of the death by Tatupu's ex-wife, Linnea.

 

Tatupu, who was born in Samoa and raised in Hawaii, was named to the Patriots 50th Anniversary Team last year as a special teams player. Tatupu had been coaching running backs coach at Curry College and previously had served as head coach of King Philip High School in Wrentham, where he coached his son, Lofa, who now is a linebacker for the Seahawks.

Francona on D&C: Give it time

Red Sox manager Terry Francona made an appearance with Dennis & Callahan from spring training Wednesday morning in Fort Myers, Fla. Francona addressed the Mike Lowell situation, saying the third baseman isn't hitting yet, and that delays any decision about his future, be it in Boston or elsewhere. "It's not an ideal situation for Mike. We recognize that," Francona said. "But we're going to move forward, we're going to get him healthy. ... He has to get healthy. We've got to get him in games. Then we'll see where that leads."

 

Francona talked about the team's starting pitching, with six players hoping for a spot in the team's five-man rotation. "I do think that we need to let these guys get ready," Francona said. "[Tim Wakefield] is coming off of surgery. Daisuke [Matsuzaka] has been slow with the back — which again I don't think that's anything major. But again, things happen. A couple of years ago...

Ray of hope: C's edge Knicks

Ray Allen had 24 points and a key block in the final minute of the game as the Celtics held on for a 110-106 win over the New York Knicks at TD Garden. Playing before the home crowd for the first time since completing a 3-1 road trip, the Celtics (36-19) built a 14-point lead in the first quarter only to see the Knicks come back and make it a one-possession game for most of the second half. Nate Robinson made his Celtics debut wearing No. 4 with 49.6 seconds remaining in the first quarter. He finished with four points on 2-of-7 shooting in 16 minutes. Eddie House received a standing ovation and a video tribute and scored four points, while Bill Walker added seven points as they returned along with the injured J.R. Giddens with the Knicks for the first time since last week's trade that netted Robinson and Marcus Landry. For complete coverage, visit the Green Street blog.
