Remy on D&C: A change at DH 'possible'

Jerry Remy, NESN's Red Sox analyst, called in to the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning. He weighed in on a number of topics, including the struggles of David Ortiz.

 

With Ortiz batting just .136 and Mike Lowell and Jeremy Hermida on the bench, Remy said that there could be a change at the DH spot sometime in the next week. "That's possible, you almost saw a different one on Monday," Remy said. "It's the first time I've heard Francona come out and say in his pregame meeting that he was legitimately thinking about having somebody else DH. The Ellsbury injury caused him not to do that. So is it today? I don't know. Is it sometime in the next week? Depends on how things go with him."

 

Remy said that a big concern of Terry Francona is the possibility of 'losing' Ortiz if he does make a change at the DH position. "That's the problem right now, that's what Francona is facing right now. A week...

Patriots announce Hall of Fame finalists

The New England Patriots have announced that center Jon Morris (1964-74), defensive tackle Houston Antwine (1961-71) and running back Sam Cunningham (1973-79, 81-82) are the three finalists for the 2010 Patriots Hall of Fame class. 

 

Morris was a seven-time American Football League All-Star, a total that ranks second only to John Hannah's nine in franchise history. The center is a member of the Patriots 50th Anniversary Team and the 1960s All-Decade Team.

 

Antwine paced the Patriots in sacks in three straight seasons from 1967-69 and his 39.0 career sacks with the club rank tied for 10th in franchise annals. A six-time member of the AFL All-Star Team, the defensive tackle is also a member of the Patriots 50th Anniversary Team and the 1960s All-Decade Team.

 

Cunningham, the Patriots career rushing leader with 5,453 yards on the ground, finished his tenure in New England with 49 overall...

Report: Doc could leave Celtics after season

Sources have told the Boston Herald that Celtics coach Doc Rivers is leaning toward not coming back next season. 

 

"Part of it is true," Rivers told the Herald on Tuesday. "Every year I sit down in the middle of the summer and I have a family discussion. We talk about what we want to do. That's nothing new, but every year it gets stronger and stronger. And I think people are making common sense reads. I've got three seniors next year, two in college and one in high school. That's important to me."

 

Rivers' son, Jeremiah, plays on Indiana University's basketball team. His other son, Austin, will be a high school senior and is acknowledged as one of the top prep basketball players in the country. Rivers' daughter, Callie, is a volleyball standout at the University of Florida.
