Scutaro gets three hits in last rehab game

Marco Scutaro wrapped up a scheduled three-game rehab assignment by going 3-for-4 with a double and two runs for Triple-A Pawtucket. Scutaro was 5-for-11 with a walk and the double during his first games since landing on the disabled list in early May due to a strained oblique. He served as the designated hitter on Monday, following games at short and second.

Scutaro is expected to rejoin the Sox and be activated on Tuesday in New York. He is hitting .235 with a .316 OBP and .309 slugging mark in 23 games this year for the Red Sox.

In the same game against Tampa Bay's Triple-A affiliate in Durham, veteran Kevin Millwood -- signed by the Sox as a minor league free agent after Daisuke Matsuzaka landed on the DL -- pitched his best game of the year. Millwood tossed 6 2/3 innings, allowing one run on five hits while walking none and striking out four. According to PawSox broadcaster Dan Hoard, his fastball velocity was 87-89 mph.

Ferraro on M&M: Put in Thornton for Paille

Former NHL forward Ray Ferraro, who now has a radio show in Vancouver and provides game analysis for Canadian television, joined the Mut & Merloni show Monday and offered a small dose of optimism for Bruins fans.

"I think the Bruins can get back in the series tonight," said Ferraro, who retired in 2002 after 18 NHL seasons and 898 points (408 goals). "I think if you played 100 games, I think the Canucks would win more. I really do. I think the Canucks are a deeper, better team. But that doesn't mean that they're going to win this series. What it means is tonight is absolutely imperative to the Bruins. They lose, they don't have a chance. They win, then they've got a chance. They give themselves a chance in Game 4 to even this series.

"I think the Bruins can win tonight. But they'd better be letter perfect, because the Canucks are a good road team."

Ferraro said it's important for the B's to get off to a good...

Kluzak on D&C: Get Chara away from net
By: admin

NESN Bruins analyst and former defenseman Gord Kluzak called in to the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to discuss the Stanley Cup finals.

Kluzak said that the Bruins could have won either of the first two games had they played slightly better.

“I think they have had breakdowns at times that have really hurt,” Kluzak said. “I think if they get back to what they can do — and the model is Game 7 vs. Tampa Bay — this thing is very winnable. I'm much more optimistic than I hear you guys were this morning.

"I don't think Vancouver is as good as advertised. I've never been overly impressed with the Sedins. I think [Ryan] Kessler may be hurt, the way that [Johnny] Boychuk hit happened early on in Game 2. I didn't think Kessler was the same player, and I think if you're the Bruins you're trying to be as physical as you can with him because he is the key, in my opinion. I think this is still very winnable....

Green Men on D&C: 'We have no dignity'

Vancouver's Green Men, Force and Sully, stopped by the WEEI studio for a visit with Dennis & Callahan Monday morning while in Boston for Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup finals.

The two Canucks fans clad in spandex bodysuits made a name for themselves by annoying opposing players in the penalty box at Rogers Arena, but the NHL restricted their behavior after they became cult favorites.

"The NHL directly told us: 'No more handstands, you can't touch the glass.' We were told we were not allowed to agitate the players," Force explained. "So, we just have to step up our game and be more creative. It seems to be working. We're getting under a few people's skin."

Diminutive Bruins forward Brad Marchand engaged in a feud with the pair last week. "Marchand gave us a couple of chirps, I got doused with some water," Sully said. "You get that when you ask if he's sitting on phone books."

Mashup: Struggling Bay benched by Mets

Struggling outfielder Jason Bay, whose average is down to .216 (with two home runs and 10 RBIs) after going hitless in his last 17 at-bats, was benched Sunday by Mets manager Terry Collins. "Judging by my results lately, I couldn't say no," the former Red Sox slugger said. "Obviously, I want to play. I like playing. But ... I don't think it could hurt."

Bay has looked impressive in batting practice but has been unable to carry it over into games. "In batting practice, I'm still that guy," he said of his success with the Red Sox and Pirates. "I need to find a way to get that translated to the game."

Since leaving the Sox to sign a big free agent contract with the Mets before the 2010 season, Bay has batted .247 with eight home runs and 57 RBIs in and had stints on the disabled list with concussion and rib cage issues.
