Verducci on D&H: Rays will edge Sox

Sports Illustrated baseball writer Tom Verducci checked in with Dale & Holley on Thursday afternoon to talk about the Red Sox. Regarding the Sox' move toward improving pitching and defense, Verducci said it will pay dividends, even if it wasn't the team's original plan. "I like what they've done defensively. I think the pitching staff will be better. I still question whether they have enough offense," he said. "But I think from the run-prevention angle of it, you'll see the results. I don't think there's any doubt about it: This team can go get the ball with anybody."

 

Verducci predicts the Yankees and Rays will beat out the Red Sox for spots in the playoffs, and he says the Rays should not be overlooked. "The two best teams I saw in Florida were the Atlanta Braves and Tampa Bay Rays," he said. "To me, the Rays, they would just kept coming at teams in spring training. You look at spring training won-loss...

Pierce on D&H: C's built for playoffs

Celtics swingman Paul Pierce joined the Dale & Holley show Thursday afternoon and talked about Wednesday night's tough loss to the Thunder. The Celtics were visibly upset about some of the officials' calls that benefited Thunder star Kevin Durant, but Pierce said the team can't afford to dwell on it. "That's the way the game goes sometimes," he said. "You've just got to move on from it. You can't let it bother you, even though it hurts. Those type of games hurt. I was really frustrated after the game, with how things went. But there's nothing you can really do. You've just got to move on."

 

Asked why he doesn't seem to get the benefit of the calls from the officials that his contemporaries do, Pierce said it's part of the whole package. "I've always been the Rodney Dangerfield of the game -- no respect. Even from Day 1, when I got drafted," he said. "It something I've just got to play through. I can...

Epstein: Lowell important to team

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Speaking prior to the Red Sox' spring training game against the Twins, Thursday afternoon at City of Palms Park, Sox general manager Theo Epstein reiterated that he still sees Mike Lowell as an important part of the team heading into Opening Day.

 

“The same exact thing I told you guys early in camp – that from the day the Texas thing fell through in December, I anticipated him being an important part of this club, albeit with a role that’s less than what he’s used to," Epstein said. "I still see it that way. There hasn’t been much trade activity, if at all, with him this spring. He’s swinging the bat well of late, looking healthier every day and I anticipate him being an important bench guy for us. No one wishes injury on anyone but strange things happen in this game and it’s a good feeling to have him be able to step in if needed.”

Hoyer on Tebow: 'Bring him. Let's go'

FOXBORO — Like everyone else around New England, current Patriots backup quarterback Brian Hoyer has heard the rumors the franchise is interested in drafting much-ballyhooed Florida quarterback Tim Tebow. Hoyer, who said he had a chance to meet Tebow the other day when the ex-Gator came to Foxboro for a visit, doesn’t seem fazed about the prospect of competing with the former Heisman Trophy winner for a job.

“Wherever you go, there’s going to be competition,” he said Thursday during a break at Gillette Stadium. “I’ll never forget, when I was being recruited at Michigan State, I was like, ‘Well, you guys have a bunch of quarterbacks here,’ and one of the coaches was ‘There’s always going to be quarterbacks wherever you go. You’re always going to have to compete.’

“Bring him. Let’s go. I mean, he’s a great player. He’s one of the...
