Gonzalez passes Teixeira in All-Star vote

Once teammates with the Texas Rangers, Adrian Gonzalez and Mark Teixeira now loom as division rivals with the Red Sox and Yankees, respectively. But they also are rivals for the title of top first baseman in their division and league, a fact that is being reflected in All-Star voting.

Gonzalez, who has never started an All-Star game but has been named to the NL squad three times, has moved past Teixeira and into first place in fan voting for the American League's starting first baseman. Gonzalez leads the American League with a .341 average, and he leads the majors with 60 RBI and 22 doubles. The Red Sox slugger also has a .392 OBP, .584 slugging percentage and .977 OPS.

Teixeira, who now trails Gonzalez by just over 250,000 votes, is hitting .250 with a .368 OBP, .534 slugging percentage and .902 OPS. The two-time starting first baseman for the AL has 19 homers, compared to 13 for Gonzalez.

Raymond (vertebrae) out 3-4 months
By: DJ Bean

The Canucks announced Tuesday that forward Mason Raymond sustained a vertebrae compression fracture in his first-period collision with Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals and will be out for three to four months.

Raymond remained on his stomach after the play and was taken to the hospital. He had no points and was a minus-3 in the finals vs. Boston and finished the playoffs with two goals and six assists for eight points and a minus-1 rating. 

With Raymond out, forward Jeff Tambellini should return to the lineup after sitting the last three games in favor of Tanner Glass.

Kluzak on M&M: Marchand is X-factor

NESN hockey analyst Gord Kluzak talked to the Mut & Merloni show Tuesday at noon following the Bruins 5-2 win over the Canucks in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals. But of course, that big win means there will be a Game 7 Wednesday night, and that has been and will be the big topic on everyone's mind until the scoreboard finally reads 0:00 on the hockey season. The biggest key for the Bruins, according to Kluzak, will be their ability to stay aggressive against the Canucks despite playing in Vancouver.

"Some of it's Vancouver and how much differently they play at home, but I think the Bruins need to be more aggressive. They need to really have that killer instinct right away in Vancouver the way they have in the Garden. Clearly, the fans are pumped up, they're pumped up when they're playing at the Garden. ... I just think they need to do the same thing in Vancouver. They need to pretend they're on Causeway Street and go right after the Canucks....
