Lugo on boos: 'I wasn't surprised'

Julio Lugo was not surprised when he was booed in his return to Fenway Park on Friday night as a member of the Baltimore Orioles. He said it was the same reaction he had received before he was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals last season.

“You hear some people clap and some people express whatever they’re feeling, but it doesn’t surprise me,” he told WEEI.com prior to Saturday’s game. “That’s what I was getting in the end when I was here at the end, people started saying stuff about me. But it didn’t surprise me. I was ready for it.”

On Friday, Lugo struck swinging to end the game, a 4-3 Red Sox win. Even though he is out of the lineup on Saturday, he does not anticipate a different response from the crowd in his next game (he expects to play on Sunday). He just expects a different result at the plate.

“I’m going to expect the same thing, especially...

Patriots wrap up draft
By: DJ Bean

FOXBORO — In the seventh and final round of the NFL draft, the Patriots chose Alabama defensive tackle Brandon Deaderick, Georgia defensive tackle Kade Weston,and Oklahoma State quarterback Zac Robinson. The 6-foot-3 7/8, 314-pound Deaderick had 83 tackles in four years at Alabama but an off-field scare in 2009 was more headline-grabbing than his stats.

Deaderick was shot in the arm prior five days before the 2009 season by an attempted robber outside an apartment complex. Deaderick was not seriously hurt and went on to play the entire...

Pierce: It's a must win

MIAMI – The Celtics elected not to hold practice Saturday afternoon after taking Game 3 from Miami on a dramatic buzzer-beater by Paul Pierce to take a 3-0 lead in their series, but don’t mistake that for over-confidence.

“I’m looking at it like it’s a 3-3 tie,” Pierce said. “It’s a must game for us. We want to be desperate for this win. We don’t want them coming back to Boston with any kind of confidence. You never know what can happen in this league. They’ve got a great player in [Dwyane] Wade and a team that played well down the stretch." Read the full post on Green Street.

Red Sox trade for Van Every, demote Reddick

The Red Sox have traded for outfielder Jonathan Van Every, who was playing with Pittsburgh's Triple A affiliate in Indianapolis. The Pirates will receive a player to be named later. To make room on the 25-man roster the Sox sent outfielder Josh Reddick to Triple A Pawtucket. The Red Sox also designated minor league pitcher Santo Luis for assignment. 

 

The 30-year-old Van Every, who does have one option remaining, was hitting .314 with two homers with Indianapolis. He received word of the deal while in Indy at midnight Friday night. The outfielder spent parts of two seasons in 2008-09 with the Red Sox, going 4-for-11 with a triple, homer and eight RBI in 18 major league games with Boston.

 

Red Sox manager Terry Francona emphasized the importance of giving Reddick an opportunity to play more. The 23-year-old had made two starts in center field for the Sox, going 1-for-6.
