Gammons: Iannetta deal unlikely for now

In his weekly appearance on The Big Show, Hall of Fame journalist and current NESN analyst Peter Gammons said that the Red Sox had investigated the availability of Rockies catcher Chris Iannetta (currently in the minors) earlier in the year, but that with the resurgence of designated hitter David Ortiz, it makes less sense to pursue him in the short term, since the Sox wouldn't be looking to move Victor Martinez from catching to the DH role. 

 

 

"They tried to get him two years ago. They’ve been looking at him, but now that Ortiz is hitting, I think it lessens the need for him. Now, I wouldn’t be surprised if they went out and got him at the end of the year. But I just don’t know if they can go out right now and expend what Colorado would want to get," said Gammons. "Chris is a much better player than what he’s done this year. The Red Sox do really love him. Maybe...

Pats will work out with Falcons this August

The Falcons announced Friday afternoon that the Patriots will visit for a couple of days of practices in Georgia before the preseason game between the two teams Aug. 19 at the Georgia Dome.

Francona: Ortiz didn't leave park mid-game

Meeting with reporters in Philadelphia prior to Friday's game against the Phillies, Red Sox manager Terry Francona disputed a report that David Ortiz left the Rogers Centre in Toronto during a game on April 27 due to his disappointment after being pulled in favor of pinch-hitter Mike Lowell. The report, which was part of an extensive feature on Ortiz on ESPN.com, said that the DH left the park after he "temporarily ignored Francona's order and kept walking to the plate" after being called back to the dugout for Lowell."

 

While Francona did not comment on the incident for the ESPN.com story, he told reporters on Friday that the portrayal was inaccurate.

 

"Somebody's reporting something that's not true," Francona told reporters. "I shouldn't have to deal with that. ... Whether...

Pierce, Celtics expecting 'feisty' Magic

WALTHAM -- Paul Pierce, Kendrick Perkins and head coach Doc Rivers all said on Friday they are expecting a feisty Orlando Magic team for Game 3 Saturday night at TD Garden. The Celtics lead the Eastern Conference finals 2-0 and can take an overwhelming 3-0 lead with a win, a deficit no team has ever overcome in NBA playoff history.

 

"It could get feisty in there. You have to expect it," said Pierce, who was still bearing a pair of scratch marks on his forehead above his left eye after being decked by Dwight Howard in the second quarter of Game 2 on Tuesday night. 

 

"Doc always say the bigger man walks away," added big man Kendrick Perkins, who will once again be assigned to Howard. "You just have to go out there and play, play Celtics basketball."
