Burress agrees to two-year prison term
By: admin

Former New York Giant Plaxico Burress pleaded guilty Thursday to a weapons charge and agreed to a two-year prison term for accidentally shooting himself at a Manhattan nightclub. The ex-wide receiver pleaded guilty to one count of attempted criminal possession of a weapon, a lesser charge than he initially faced. Under a plea agreement, he agreed to a two-year prison sentence and two years of supervised release.

Buchholz Helps Red Sox Reclaim Wild Card Lead

Clay Buchholz (2-3) allowed one run in six innings against the Blue Jays, outpitching Roy Halladay as the Red Sox claimed a 6-1 win in Toronto. Halladay gave up five runs in five innings, the fewest innings and most runs that he's allowed in a start against the Sox since 2007.

 

The Red Sox offense was led by three homers, one each from David Ortiz (19), Jason Bay (27) and Victor Martinez (19). Ortiz had his third homer in as many games and fourth in five contests, while Bay went deep for the seventh time in August.

 

That was plenty of support for Buchholz, for whom the Sox had not scored in either of his prior two outings. Buchholz turned in his third straight quality start, and has a 1.89 ERA in that span.

 

The Sox win, coupled with the Rangers' 5-4 loss, gave Boston a one-game lead over Texas in the wild-card race.

 

For the full recap of the Red Sox win,...

Remy Report: Remy to return to the booth on Friday

According to a post in The Remy Report, announcer Jerry Remy will return to the NESN broadcast booth on Friday, Aug. 21, to broadcast the game between the Red Sox and the Yankees at Fenway Park. Remy said that he would be "easing back into things," and that he might wait before going on roadtrips. All the same, Remy announced himself "excited" about getting back into the booth.
 
"You think I would miss another series with the Yankees!?" Remy asked.
 
Remy visited Fenway on Aug. 12 (for details on the visit, click here), and said at the time that he had a date in mind for a return, but did not disclose it because he had not met two prior goals for moving back into the booth. But, apparently, Remy has had a change of heart, and so...
