Sox' Drew explains his surgery

Speaking to WEEI.com from his home in Georgia, Red Sox outfielder J.D. Drew explained that the surgery he had in Boston last Thursday was a procedure that cut away some bone spurs that were irritating his acromioclavicular (AC) joint in the outfielder's left shoulder. The ailment, which had led to two cortisone shots during the 2009 season, had gotten appreciably worse as the offseason unfolded, according to Drew, leading to the operation.

 

"I got to the point a couple of times where it was really painful during the season but got the shot and it took the edge off," Drew explained. "When you're doing baseball every day I think your body is loosened up and more accepting to those motions you do.

Report: Sox shopping Lowell

According to FoxSports.com, the Red Sox are offering Mike Lowell to other clubs and offering to pick up $6 million of his $12 million salary in 2010. Even so, the report cited a rival executive who suggested that other teams would not be inclined to pick up that much of the third baseman's salary for next year.
 
Lowell is entering the final season of a three-year, $37.5 million deal he signed after the 2007 World Series. The 35-year-old hit .290 with a .337 OBP, .474 slugging percentage and .811 OPS in 2009 while hitting 17 homers and driving in 75 runs. He was limited to 119 games in his first season following surgery on his right hip labrum after the 2008 campaign.

Northeastern drops football program

Northeastern University announced through a press release on Sunday night that the school has dropped its football program.

 

"The decision was made by a panel consisting of senior administrators, trustees, faculty, alumni, donors and students. The Athletics Review Panel has met since 2007 to discuss the direction of the Athletic Department. Peter Roby, director of athletics and recreation, headed this panel and made the initial recommendation to discontinue football, which the panel accepted."

 

Northeastern finished this season, 3-8, including 3-5 in the Colonial Athletic Association. Roby said the benchmark for defining a program’s success is not wins and losses, but creating a positive student-athlete experience. "The primary motivation for this decision was based on the significant obstacles to...
