Remy on D&C: Too early to pull Ortiz

Jerry Remy, NESN's Red Sox analyst, called in to the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning and talked about the David Ortiz situation. Remy said he agreed with manager Terry Francona's decision to not have Mike Lowell pinch hit for Ortiz in the eighth inning of Tuesday night's loss to the Yankees. Said Remy: "I think it's early to make the move because that would just wreck the confidence of Ortiz."

 

With the Sox facing left-hander Andy Pettitte on Wednesday night before a batch of righties, Remy said there's a chance we Lowell could make his first appearance of the season. "I didn't expect it last night, it didn't happen, and I don't know what to expect tonight," Remy said. "It's quite possible [Francona] could give Lowell his first start of the season tonight."

 

Remy said he wasn't surprised Ortiz was impatient with the media following Tuesday night's game. "He's probably getting...

Sobel on D&C: Tiger 'still the best player'

ESPN golf writer Jason Sobel made an appearance on Wednesday's Dennis & Callahan show from Augusta National to talk about Tiger Woods' comeback. "He's ready to go," Sobel said. "He's going to be much closer to winning this tournament than missing the cut. ... He's still the best player."

 

Sobel confirmed a report that a security guard approached a woman watching Woods practice and asked her if she was "the stripper" who had an affair with the golfer, comparing her with photos of Woods' alleged mistresses that were distributed to security personnel. "This thing has gotten so much bigger than the game of golf, so you can't be too careful," Sobel noted.

 

Sobel said there have been no instances of people heckling Woods yet, and he doubts that will be a problem over the weekend. "It hasn't happened over the first two practice rounds, so let's hope that that continues," he...

Mashup: No help for Durant this time

You may recall Kevin Garnett’s comments last week about Thunder star Kevin Durant getting foul calls like he was “Michael [expletive] Jordan” in Oklahoma City’s win over the Celtics. On Tuesday night, Durant did not get the benefit of the doubt on a 3-point attempt at the buzzer in a memorable 140-139 overtime loss at Utah, and he was none too pleased. We've got video of that, plus a clip of Raptors star Chris Bosh getting hit with an elbow that broke a bone in his face. And we look at the fuss over CBS' NCAA tournament "One Shining Moment" Monday night and one person's attempt to remedy the situation by dubbing in Luther Vandross for Jennifer Hudson. It's all at Wednesday's Morning Mashup.

Vote: Should Sox have pinch-hit for Ortiz?
By: admin

With the tying run on second and no outs in the bottom of the eighth inning on Tuesday, the Yankees summoned lefty specialist Damaso Marte to face David Ortiz. Ortiz was 2-for-14 with three walks (including one on Sunday) against Marte. Ortiz stayed in to hit against Marte, and his fly to center was too shallow to advance the runner.

 

Should Ortiz have been left in to face the left-handed Marte, or should the Sox have turned to the right-handed Mike Lowell to pinch-hit for him? To vote, click here.
