Newly named Mets special assistant to general manager J.P. Ricciardi appeared on The Big Show on Wednesday. Ricciardi was asked about a tweet from Peter Gammons that indicated he worked a day in the Red Sox front office before the Mets made a job offer.
"I had the shortest tenure of any Red Sox employee ever, it was 24 hours," said Ricciardi. "I had a standing offer from the Red Sox to go over there at any time and I had gone over there to help with a project that they were doing, which was at the end of last week. And the next day [Mets general manager] Sandy Alderson had called and asked permission to talk to me. Theo [Epstein] and the ownership group were absolutely outstanding, they allowed Sandy the opportunity to talk to me and it ended up working out really well for me."
Ricciardi was then asked what would have happened had the Mets not come in with an offer.
FOXBORO — New England Revolution star forward Taylor Twellman announced his retirement Wednesday afternoon at Gillette Stadium due to lingering effects from a serious concussion and neck injury in August 2008.
"Today is hard," the 30-year-old Twellman said. "It's unfortunate to lose your career to injury."
Twellman was injured on Aug. 30, 2008, in a game against the Los Angeles Galaxy and was limited to just two games in 2009 and did not play this past season.
"I hate the fact that my career has ended because of a brain injury but I have the chance to educate parents and children on concussions," Twellman said.
Twellman, with 109 goals in eight seasons, retires as the leading goal-scorer in Revolution history and was a team leader on a club that made four MLS Cup title games, losing all four. Twellman, a U.S. soccer icon,...
As he suggested would be the case during the 2010 season, Adrian Beltre has declined his $10 million player option for '11 with the Red Sox, instead electing free agency. The 31-year-old Beltre, who hit .321 with 28 home runs, 102 RBI and a career-high 49 doubles, saw his option bump up from $5 million to $10 million in his last game of the season, having eclipsed the 640 plate appearances that kicked in the option's increase.
Regarding the opportunity to double the player option, Beltre told WEEI.com that he didn't view it as a big deal. “That number was set because I had done it before I had been close to that number for a lot of years. Since the season started I never thought about numbers. I never really thought about it,” he said on Sept. 21. “It shows I wasn’t hurt,...
