Pierce on D&H: Ignore trash talk

Paul Pierce appeared on Dale & Holley this afternoon and talked about the Celtics' fast start. He also addressed Sunday's Rajon Rondo-Chris Paul incident, defending his teammate and nothing that players need to be able to play through the trash-talking on the court.


"Hey, it's up to you to be able to just concentrate and focus on the game and not get caught up in that, because people are going to say things some nights, and if it throws you off your game and gives us an advantage, so be it."

Theo: Hermida 'may still have' promise
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein, speaking with reporters in a conference call, explained the team's decision to trade to for Marlins outfielder Jeremy Hermida Thursday. Here are some of the highlights:


"[Hermida] was very young for each level he was at and performed extremely well, especially at Double A, and things just never came together for him in the big leagues," Epstein said. "That's not uncommon for young players. He's about to turn 26 [and] move into his prime years. Sometimes talented young players who have struggled in the big league level put it all together and sometimes they don't. When you have a chance to acquire one for what we deem to be a very reasonable cost, we think that's the type of move that makes sense."


"When you acquire a player, sometimes you acquire them because you think there's a chance that with a change of scenery they might grow into their potential and...

Red Sox trade for Marlins' Hermida

With the champagne from Yankees' World Series celebration barely dry, the Red Sox made their first move in an attempt to catch New York next season. Boston traded left-handed pitchers Hunter Jones and Jose Alvarez to the Marlins for 25-year-old outfielder Jeremy Hermida.


Hermida, a left-handed hitter, batted .259 with 13 home runs, 47 RBI and a career-high 56 walks in 129 games this season. Splitting time between left field and right field, Hermida made just one error in 205 total chances for a .995 fielding percentage, sixth among National League outfielders. He appeared in just three games after Aug. 31 due to an intercostal strain on his right side.

Gammons on Jason Bay: 'I don't think the Yankees will become major players'

ESPN's Peter Gammons joined the Big Show on Thursday afternoon to discuss the Yankees' World Series win and the Red Sox' offseason priorities. Here are some of the points Gammons made during his appearance:

  • On the atmosphere in Yankee Stadium: "There really wasn't that wild feeling that there was in years' past."
  • When asked about the biggest impact on the Yankees' success: "I think it was the pitching ... [CC Sabathia] made a huge difference."
  • On the Yankees' offseason moves: "I think they sign [Hideki] Matsui and let [Johnny] Damon go. ... I get the impression from Hal Steinbrenner that the payroll is not going up."
  • On the possibility of the Yankees pursuing Jason Bay: "I don't think the Yankees will become major players."
  • On Josh Beckett's contract status: "I think Texas is a team in the free agent market that would go spend."...

On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
