Francona: Daisuke to get surgery next week

Red Sox manager Terry Francona confirmed after Friday's game against Oakland that starting pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka will have ligament replacement surgery on his right elbow within the next week. The decision to go ahead with the surgery was made after a consultatation between Red Sox team doctor Thomas Gill and orthopedic specialist Dr. Lewis Yocum during Friday's game, with Matsuzaka's input. 

"It looks like Dr. Yocum is going to peform a surgery on Daisuke, probably some time next week," Francona said. "That's still to be determined but it looks like it'll be next week."

Matsuzaka will miss the remainder of the 2011 season, his fifth year of a six-year, $52 million deal with the Red Sox, signed before the 2007 season. Matsuzaka was 3-3 with a 5.30 ERA this season in eight games, seven starts. He is likely to miss part of the 2012 season as well as he recovers and rehabilitates his right elbow. 

Matsuzaka...

Losing skid A-Goner: A-Gon leads Sox to win

Adrian Gonzalez had three more hits to raise his average to .335 and started the go-ahead rally in the seventh with a double as the Red Sox beat the A's, 8-6, Friday night at Fenway to snap a four-game losing streak. Jarrod Saltalamacchia added a solo homer in the eighth - his fifth - for insurance and David Ortiz collected two hits and drove in a pair as the Red Sox sent the A's to their fourth straight loss.  

The Red Sox had to fight their way out of an early four-run deficit when Clay Buchholz was tagged for four runs and five hits in the first inning, with the big blow coming from Mark Elllis, who singled home two runs with two outs. The Red Sox began to chip away in the bottom of first against A's starter Josh Outman, as Gonzalez drove in a run with a ground out as part of a two-run inning. The Sox added one in the second and two more in the third to hand Buchholz a 5-4 lead heading into the fourth. 

But Buchholz gave the lead...

Brady 'confident' labor deal can be reached

Speaking on Friday night, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said he was “confident” that a new labor deal between the owners and players can get done sooner rather than later. Talking with reporters at halftime of his charity football game at Harvard Stadium for Best Buddies, Brady said he's not sure when the lockout would end, but he certainly sounded encouraged by the recent developments.

“There has been a lot of positive news from both sides. Everyone is working hard for a great outcome. I’m confident that a lot of reasonable people will come to a very reasonable agreement,” he said. “Everyone is just dealing with it — the players are dealing with it as best we know how and the owners are. Like I said, hopefully there is a great outcome. I’m relatively confident that there will be.”

Brady was also asked about having his name on the lawsuit the players are bringing against the league...

Lucic: Media not giving B's a chance
By: DJ Bean

VANCOUVER -- Speaking after the team's practice at the University of British Columbia, Bruins left wing Milan Lucic said that he feels the Bruins have not been given their due respect when it comes to the media in the Stanley Cup finals. With the team down, 1-0, in the series to the Canucks, Lucic noted that the way the team is being perceived may be inaccurate. 

"You know, it's clear that you guys aren't giving us much of a chance," Lucic said. "We've just got to do whatever we can to prove people wrong."

Due to concerts at Rogers Arena, the home of the Canucks, the teams have had to deal with a two-day gap between Games 1 and 2. Lucic noted that he's blocked out any chatter in that time and is focused on giving the media something positive to talk about after Saturday's Game 2. 

"Obviously we can't control what you guys say," Lucic said. "That's why we try not to watch or read too much of what...
