Sox' Lin fulfills military obligation

Red Sox outfield prospect Che-Hsuan Lin fulfilled his Taiwanese military requirement in December, according to farm director Mike Hazen. While Taiwan has a one-year military service requirement for all male citizens, Taiwan - like South Korea - has made exceptions or accommodations for professional baseball players, particularly those who have played for the country's National Team.

 

Lin is currently taking part in the Red Sox Rookie Development Program. For more on the outfielder, click here.

Doc on D&C: 'I just don't get' fine

Celtics coach Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning. Rivers was asked how the league came up with $25,000 as the amount to fine him for his actions toward the referees Monday night. "I don't know how we got to that number, but it's there," Rivers said, adding that he still doesn't understand why he was fined so much when the league basically admitted the call he was arguing was incorrect. "In this one, I just don't get it, but we move on. You know how it is."

 

Rivers said he wasn't surprised his team looked tired in Thursday night's loss to the Bulls. "It's tough to get mad," he said. "Before the game, I was concerned about that game. It was the last game of the four in five [nights], short bench ... To put on top of that the Bulls had been sitting in town for two days waiting. You knew it would be a tough game."

 

Rivers said he isn't...

Schefter: 'Changes in Foxboro'

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show and discussed the Patriots' offseason strategy. "I think you're going to see some changes in Foxboro this offseason," Schefter said, with one of the first items on the team's list to hire a new defensive coordinator. "It's time to groom new young people like the Matt Patricias of the world — who wouldn't surprise me if he was the new defensive coordinator," Schefter said. "That always is a logical route to follow in these situations."

 

As for the uncertainty regarding the collective bargaining agreement, Schefter said: "We're heading toward an uncapped year and teams are being very careful about how they're spending money." But Schefter said the uncertainty shouldn't affect the Patriots' dealings with underachieving players such as Adalius Thomas. Said Schefter: "In this league, you produce, you...

Kraft on D&C: Pats out of synch

Patriots president Jonathan Kraft was a guest on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning and discussed the team's disappointing finish as well as the league's collective bargaining issues and how they will affect the Patriots. "We're not happy with how the season came out [but] we won our division, so we accomplished one of the goals we set out," Kraft said. "The season did not end up the way we wanted." Added Kraft: "It never felt for long stretches of time we were completely in synch like we were in the past. I think a lot of that has to do with the change on the defensive side of the ball."

 

Kraft implied that the Patriots will stay in house to replace defensive coordinator Dean Pees, noting that bringing in outsiders is risky as they may not adapt quickly enough to Belichick's style. "Clearly, we've had huge amounts of turnover here [in the past few years]," Kraft said. "I think Bill's...
