Report: Pedro wants to pitch for Sox

In an interview with the New York Times, three-time Cy Young winner Pedro Martinez said that he remains open to returning to baseball in order to join a team with World Series ambitions. The right-hander, who pitched for the Red Sox from 1998-2004, said that he could be ready to face major league hitters in a month to a month and a half if a team called him, and if approached by the Phillies (with whom he pitched in the 2009 World Series), Yankees and Red Sox, he would want to return to the team with whom he enjoyed his greatest success.

"I’d probably have to say the Red Sox," Martinez said when asked for which of those three teams he would most like to pitch. "I would like to win a World Series in the National League, so the Phillies are in there, too. But for the time I’m going to be playing, I...

Pedroia: 'We've got to pitch better'

After the Red Sox absorbed a 9-4 beating at the hands of the Yankees in which they gave up four home runs, second baseman Dustin Pedroia suggested that the team will need a dramatic improvement from its pitchers.

"We’ve got to pitch better, man. They have a great offense, but we can’t give up a lot of runs. It’s tough to score 10, you know what I mean?" said Pedroia. "We’ll come out tomorrow and keep playing. That’s what we’ve got to do. There’s really nothing you can say. Just got to play better. That’s it."

The sox have now given up 19 homers through eight games, most by any pitching staff in the majors. Starter Clay Buchholz has now given up five of those, or more than half as many (in 10 innings) as the nine he allowed in 173 2/3 innings in 2010.

Thomas: Hasek was a 'hero of mine'
By: DJ Bean

After making his final start of the regular season Saturday, Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas reflected on breaking Dominik Hasek's single-season save percentage record. 

"That number is a testament to the team in front of me and the way that they battled for me all year long, defensemen and forwards,” Thomas said. “It also reflects probably one of the best, if not the best defenseman in our world out there in front of me that I think should be getting a little bit more Norris talk than at least I’ve heard. Maybe he is, I don’t know. I don’t hear that much. He’s been stellar for us all year playing against the top players on every team, night in and night our and just doing a great job. So that number is the team number.”

Thomas said he remembered looking up to Hasek when he was in college, as both goaltenders have been known for a smilier reckless style of play. 

“I certainly...

Bombs away: Yanks smack 4 HRs, mash Sox

Russell Martin belted two homers to the Monster seats in left and Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano added two roundtrippers apiece as the Yankees blasted the Red Sox, 9-4, Saturday at Fenway Park. After snapping a six-game, season-opening skid, the Red Sox reverted to more ugliness Saturday as the pitching staff was touched for 13 hits

Red Sox pitchers have yielded a major league-leading 19 homers in eight games in falling to 1-7 on the season. Entering Saturday, no MLB team had allowed more than 13. The Yankees, who were paced by three hits apiece from Cano and Eric Chavez, built a 5-1 lead off Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz (0-2). The Red Sox starter allowed five runs - four earned - and eight hits in lasting just 3 2/3 innings. His ERA stands at 7.20.

The Red Sox appeared to get themselves back in the game when they scored three off Yankees' starter Ivan Nova in the fourth, thanks to a Cano bobble on what appeared to be a certain inning-ending...

Thomas breaks Hasek's record, B's win
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins held fan appreciation day at the Garden Saturday and made sure they delivered a win to the home crowd, beating the Senators, 3-1. 

Daniel Paille, Nathan Horton and Rich Peverley provided the goals for the B's, though it was the goaltender who ultimately end up being the biggest story. 

Claude Julien said following the game that Tuukka Rask would start Sunday, meaning the book is closed on Tim Thomas' regular season and that he has set the NHL record for save percentage in a single season. By finishing the game with a .9381 mark, he surpassed Dominik Hasek's .9366 save percentage in 1998-99.  The stat first began being recorded in the 1982-83 season.  

Marlborough native Bobby Butler scored the Senators' only goal, beating Thomas at 18:27 of the first period. 

With the win Saturday, the B's are still alive to potentially take the second seed in the Eastern Conference, though they will need a...
