Pedroia on Lee: 'Hope he's not in pinstripes'

Dustin Pedroia called into The Big Show on Wednesday to announce that he will join the program each Wednesday during the offseason. The 2007 AL MVP was asked how his level of progression following the September 3 surgery on his fractured left foot.

 

"I should be 100 percent 12 weeks after surgery," said Pedroia. "I'll be out of the boot in three weeks, so we'll see how it goes ... I can't wait to get to spring training and get going."

 

Pedroia was asked about the possibility of Cliff Lee signing as a free agent with the Yankees in the offseason. Lee is 3-0 in the 2010 postseason and has never lost in eight career playoff starts.

 

"I don't think about that," Pedroia said. "We faced Cliff a lot, he's pretty darn good. He pounds the zone with a 91, 92 MPH fastball and it looks like it's about 100 MPH ... He's pretty special. I hope he's not over there in pinstripes....

Report: Pats work out two running backs

The Patriots had two running backs, James Johnson and Javarris Williams, in for workouts although neither player was signed, ESPN.com reported. The Pats are thin at running back with Fred Taylor still battling a toe injury, leaving BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Danny Woodhead and Sammy Morris at the position.

 

Williams has made the rounds in recent weeks. He was with the Seahawks, but was released on Oct. 11 and before that he was on the Redskins practice squad. Johnson was on the Packers practice squad.

Giants pummel Lee, Rangers in Game 1 win

Entering the first World Series game in Rangers history, Texas' starter, Cliff Lee, had allowed a total of nine earned runs in eight postseason starts spanning 64 1/3 innings. He had thrown at least seven innings in each of those starts.

 

But in the fifth inning of Game 1 of the World Series, the Giants knocked Lee out of the game with a six-run rally that included four hits and a walk against the Rangers ace. Lee -- who was pitching on eight days' rest -- lasted just 4 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs (six earned) as San Francisco romped to an 11-7 win to open the best-of-seven series. Lee suffered his first career postseason loss, slipping to 7-1 in October.

 

Former Red Sox prospect Freddy Sanchez, now the Giants second baseman, delivered a huge performance. He went 4-for-5 with three doubles, two of the run-scoring variety against Lee, in the process becoming the first player since Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury in 2007...

Celtics let it slip away against Cavs

One night after playing the most hyped opener in NBA history, the Celtics got caught on the back end of a back-to-back on the road in a 95-87 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs trailed by five entering the fourth quarter but rallied to take an 89-84 lead with 1:33 remaining. The Celtics had a chance to tie the game, but Ray Allen missed a 3-pointer. Allen went 0-for-5 from 3-point range.

 

The Celtics turned it over 19 times and the bench outside of Glen Davis and Marquis Daniels shot 2-for-8. The Cavs big run came with the starters off the floor, but that's the tradeoff for playing Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett major minutes the night before. It was also a rough night for Jermaine O'Neal who fouled out after playing just 12 minutes and registering three turnovers.

 

There were a handful of bright spots for the Celtics, however. Garnett had 15 rebounds in just 30 minutes of action and Rajon Rondo had 18 points...

Childress: Moss has delivered intel on Pats

The possible impact of Randy Moss on the Vikings has been discussed plenty in recent days, but no matter what he does on the field Sunday, he’s already had a chance to help the Vikings offense and defense prepare for their game with the Patriots. According to coach Brad Childress, Moss spent his off-day huddling with both offensive and defensive in hopes of getting them up to speed on New England.

“He’s very articulate,” Childress said of Moss. “He spent time with our coaches [Tuesday] and did a great job with both our offense and defensive coaches.”

Childress said he did “a good job” when it comes to providing background on the Patriots.

“You never know what you’re going to get and how they have to play him,” Childress said. “He at least had some insightfulness on both sides.”
