Francona: '[Roberts] can outrun anything'

Red Sox manager Terry Francona first heard whispers of a diagnosis of cancer for Dave Roberts last week. Though he has not yet been in direct contact with his former outfielder, Francona did sound a note of optimism about the 37-year-old's prospects in his recovery from Hodgkins lymphoma.

 

"I expect Davey can outrun anything," said Francona. "He’s got a lot of people here pulling for him. I think he probably feels that everywhere. Everywhere he’s been, I would think he’s got people pulling for him."

Francona: Losing feels like 'end of the world'

Prior to Monday's game against the Angels, Red Sox manager Terry Francona discussed his team's struggles and the difficulty of handling his team's 11-14 start out of the gate. The manager suggested that it is natural for players to press, especially given that a slow start tends to magnify attention on a team's poor performance. "I think it magnifies things. You know what though, I don’t know that I’ve ever been here and felt like losing wasn’t the end of the world," said Francona. "That’s difficult when it’s your job, but also, that’s part of what makes this place special. You show up here, and every game means something. And it means something to us too. And I don’t want that to go away. We have a lot of responsibility here. We have great fans. There’s a lot of attention from the media. Maybe losing’s easier when there’s two media members here, or no fans. That’s not what we...

Dave Roberts being treated for lymphoma

Dave Roberts, the owner of the most famous stolen base in Red Sox history, is under treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma. 

 

Roberts, 37 years old and a special assistant for the San Diego Padres, was diagnosed in March and says that his prognosis is "good." The 10-year MLB veteran has undergone two rounds of chemotherapy.

 

The outfielder played just 45 regular season games with the Red Sox in his one season with the club (2004), but it was his stolen base and run scored in the ninth inning of Game 4 of the ALCS that many count as the starting point to the now-legendary comeback vs. the Yankees.

Cavs coach disputes Shaq's hard foul

CLEVELAND — There has been a lot made of the hard foul that Shaquille O’Neal administered to Rajon Rondo late in Game 1 that sent Rondo careening to the floor. One overheated Cleveland media member asked Cavs coach Mike Brown if it was the hardest playoff foul he’s ever seen. Obviously it wasn’t, but Brown raised some eyebrows when he said he asked the NBA for clarification over whether it actually was even a foul. Brown’s contention is that Rondo initiated the contact. Read the full post on Green Street.
