Jets' Revis clears air with Ryan

Jets coach Rex Ryan met with disgruntled star cornerback Darrelle Revis Tuesday night, and the coach told ESPN Wednesday morning that the two have worked out any problems. Revis created a controversy when he asked out of a drill at minicamp on Monday because he didn't feel well, then later told reporters it was a statement about his concern over contract negotiations. Ryan said Wednesday that Revis now insists he did feel "lightheaded" during practice. Added Ryan: "The great thing is, he never has to apologize to me. Just go out, be yourself and that will be good enough for me."

Remy on D&C: Manny's 'going to get booed'
By: Jay Asser

NESN Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy joined the Dennis & Callahan show on Wednesday morning for his weekly discussion about the Red Sox. He talked about Boston's recent success, interleague play, and Manny Ramirez' return to Fenway Park this weekend as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

 

"I think he's going to get booed," Remy said of Ramirez. "He quit on them, and it's too bad. I thought a lot about that, and you think of how much people loved Manny when he was here, but the way it ended was not pretty, and I think fans remember that."

 

Remy also touched on the Celtics' blowout loss in Game 6 and what their mindset might be heading into Game 7.

 

"You feel bad you couldn't close things out, obviously, but the fact is you know you have one more game to play and you gear up for that," Remy said. "It reminds me of the year the Red...

Mashup: Another celebration injury

The latest celebration injury occurred in Los Angeles, as UCLA second baseman Tyler Rahmatulla, one of the Bruins’ top hitters, will miss the College World Series after breaking his wrist during a pile-up celebration after the team's regional title.

Baby: C's got '[butts] kicked, pure and simple

LOS ANGELES -- Following a 22-point loss in a potential championship-clinching game, the Celtics reacted with embarrassment after Tuesday's Game 6 defeat to the Lakers at Staples Center. 

 

"We got our ass kicked, point-blank, simple," Glen Davis said. "They came out there and hit us hard. They beat us mentally, physically." 

 

That was particularly evident on the glass, where the Celtics were outrebounded 30-13 in the first half and fell behind 71-51 at halftime. Others pointed the energy that was lost when their starting center Kendrick Perkins went down with what NBA officials are calling a sprained right knee. 

 

"We have no choice," Kevin Garnett said of the change in approach for Game 7 Thursday. "We come out [in Game 7] with the energy we had tonight, we'll get blown out, embarrassed."

Ortiz says Manny and he not that close
By: DJ Bean

With Manny Ramirez making his return to Fenway Park Friday when the Dodgers roll into town, many are wondering how both the fans and his former teammates will treat him. David Ortiz, perceived to be one of Ramirez' closest friends in the world, has set the record straight that though the teammates enjoyed each other while both members of the Red Sox, the two have barely had any communication since July 31, 2008. 

 

"Since Manny was traded, to tell you the truth, if I had talked to Manny four times, that’s a lot," Ortiz explained. "That’s him, though. I’ll bet that when he sees me he’s going to be jumping all over me, this and that, and wanting to do things, but that’s him, though, and I understand that. People believe that me and Manny were really together. It was so hard for me to reach out to Manny when we were playing together. Manny would call you and tell you, 'I’ll meet you in a...
