Beckett: Back injury blown out of proportion

Speaking after throwing a bullpen session, Tuesday at Angels Stadium, Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett said the back spasms which led him to getting three cortisone shots while also missing a start were never a serious concern and that the entire situation was "blown out of proportion". “I just had those two days where I had the back spasms. I don’t think I even needed the shots, I just wanted the pain to go away that day,” the pitcher said. “All they were where back spasms. I don’t know who ended up blowing it up into this big situation. It really wasn’t that big a deal. It was trigger point injection with cortisone and all it was was tight muscles. It really wasn’t anything. I really didn’t do anything to my back. I just woke up that day and my back was stiff.” For more...

Schilling: Assigned umpires a concern

Writing on his blog, 38 Pitches, Curt Schilling says that the group of umpires assigned to the American League Division Series between the Red Sox and Angels should be of some concern. "To be honest one of my biggest fears is the umpiring crew," wrote Schilling. "This is about as bad a crew as I have ever seen assembled. Joe West for all his pomp and circumstance can ump a game. C.B. Buckner? Greg Gibson? Not so much. I’m blown away that A) they made the postseason and B) they are umping what I think will be the most watched series. If I HAD to put them on the postseason roster, I’d try and hide them on the outfield foul lines of Colorado. Look for BOTH to have game impact in this series."...

Report: Seau auditioned for Pats Tuesday

According to the National Football Post, linebacker Junior Seau took another step in a return to the game on Tuesday when he worked out for the Patriots. The story, which quoted a league source, indicated that New England put the veteran linebacker through a tryout. Things appear to falling into place for Seau's return to the Patriots: WEEI.com reported Sunday that the 40-year-old Seau will sign a deal to return to the Patriots very soon, possibly as early as this week. ESPNBoston reported that Seau took a physical for the team last weekend. And Seau has stated several times in the past if he did return, it would only be with New England. The linebacker, a 12-time Pro Bowler, has come out of retirement twice to join the Patriots, and has played parts of the last three seasons in New...

Lowrie On Roster - ALDS Notes

Red Sox infielder Jed Lowrie will be on the roster for the American League Division Series against the Angels, manager Terry Francona said. Lowrie has missed much of the season with wrist and hand problems, and said after launching a grand slam on Sunday that his left hand still hurts on his follow-through when swinging left-handed.

 

Other notes from Anaheim:

 

Jon Lester on his Game 1 assignment, "I was surprised to be in this position . . . I was thankful to be considered for it." He also gave his thoughts on the Angels offense in 2009, "I don't think they're any different as far as attacking them . . . What makes them so difficult is the way they run the bases."

 

Outfielder Rocco Baldelli is steall dealing with a strained hip, and may not be be able to play in the ALDS. "It is still pretty tender," said Francona. "I don't know if it will work or not."...
