NBA commissioner David Stern suspended Wizards guards Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton without pay for the remainder of the 2009-10 season, the league announced on Wednesday. According to a statement issued by the NBA:

Gammons noted that the Mets were the only team that aggressively pursued Bay in a long-term deal, suggesting that such a conservative approach could be attributed to other teams' concerns about the outfielder's health.

 

"The Mets were the only team that were in on Jason," Gammons said. "There were serious physical concerns that were there. [Red Sox team physician] Dr. [Thomas] Gill thought it was a tremendous risk to be giving him a four-year contract."
