Report: Celtics eyeing Barbosa, Fernandez

According to a report in the Boston Herald, the Celtics are looking at trades that could bring them either Phoenix' Leandro Barbosa or Rudy Fernandez of Portland. The report states that the Celts would most likely use Rasheed Wallace's contract to secure Barbosa, a 27-year-old swingman who will make $7.1 million in 2010-11 after averaging 9.5 points in 17.9 minutes per game for the Suns last season. Fernandez is a 6-foot-6 shooter who averaged 8.1 minutes and 1.0 assists in 23.2 minutes for the Trail Blazers in '09-10. He is due to make $1,246,680 in the coming season, and has a team option of $2,180,443 for '11-12. For more see the Celtics team page by going to weei.com/celtics.

Pap on All-Star nod: 'I've given myself a shot'

When asked after the Red Sox' 9-3 win over the Orioles Saturday night if he felt like he had a first half worthy of a selection to the American League All-Star team, Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon said, "I do. I feel like that if you're on a winning team and you're up at the top of saves -- and that's what I have to do is go out and get saves -- I've given myself a shot."

 

Papelbon has made the All-Star team in each of his first full seasons in the major leagues, and is in position to earn another berth when the teams are announced noon on Sunday. The reliever is second in the AL in saves with 19, trailing Texas' Neftali Feliz and Joakim Soria of Kansas City, both of whom have 21. Tampa Bay's Rafael Soriano also has 19 saves, but with just one blown save compared to Papelbon's three.

 

A potential roadblock for Papelbon is his ERA, which stands at 3.71 in large part to back-to-back blown saves in Colorado where he...

Lester, Sox continue to pound O's

After belting two homers on Friday, J.D. Drew had three more hits and Kevin Youkilis drilled a long two-run homer and drove in three runs as the Red Sox beat the Orioles, 9-3, at Fenway Park. David Ortiz also had three hits and an RBI in the victory, Boston's 12th in their last 16 games. 

 

The run support was more than enough for Jon Lester [10-3], who joined Clay Buchholz as a 10-game winner on the Red Sox staff. Lester, who allowed just one run and five hits over seven innings, improved to a perfect 12-0 in 15 career starts against the hapless Orioles. 

 

The Red Sox improved to a season-best 17 games over .500 at 49-32 as they reached the halfway mark of the season. Since starting the season 4-9, the Red Sox are 45-23, the best mark in the majors. They remain a half-game behind the Yankees in the American League East.

Polian on issues facing Brady, Manning talks

Speaking on the Fenway Park field prior to the Red Sox' game against the Orioles Saturday night, Bill Polian, the president of the Indianapolis Colts, spoke on what might await teams such as the Colts and Patriots when it comes to the challenges that will come with attempting to re-sign their superstar quarterbacks.

 

Polian noted having to commit a significant amount of financial resources to a top tier quarterback -- such as Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, both of whom are heading into the final years of their respective contracts -- will inevitably have some bearing on teams' the ability to construct a team. But Polian also points out that the level of impact won't be entirely known until a new collective bargaining agreement is put in place.

 

"It's bound to have some affect," Polian told WEEI.com. "What we don't know is what the system is going forward. It makes it really difficult working out a deal that...

Delcarmen after good news: 'I can sleep now'

The Red Sox received good news Saturday on the right forearm of Manny Delcarmen when an MRI showed no structural damage. 

 

"Structurally, it came out really good," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. "Even the amount of swelling is not as much as they expected so it's strictly musculature. We'll keep him down for a few days and then we'll start maybe [have him] throw a couple of bullpens maybe Friday and Sunday before the break and hopefully, that'll do the trick." 

 

Delcarmen was placed on the disabled list on Friday and will not be active until after the All-Star break. He said he expects to throw from 60 and 90 feet Tuesday, eyeing a side session Saturday or Sunday. The reliever then hopes to execute one more bullpen after the All-Star break before returning to action. It is a timetable Delcarmen accepts with open arms, especially after having to experience the agony of rehabbing from...
