Youkilis on D&H: 'We just want to win'

Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis joined the Dale & Holley show Wednesday from Tampa and talked about his chances of making the All-Star team. Youkilis is one of five American League players whose fate will be decided by fan balloting for the final roster spot this week.

 

Youkilis passed on a chance to campaign, saying: "You guys know me, I'm not really interested in self-promotion." However, he did stress how nice it would be to return to the All-Star Game. "It's a great honor," he said. "You never work to be an All-Star, but when you get named to be an All-Star it's a great thing."

 

The Red Sox partnered with the Reds to promote Youkilis and Reds first baseman Joey Votto, and the Sox star said he appreciated his hometown team's cooperation in pushing for him. "Cincinnati means a lot to me, it always has," he said. "I love the town."

Rivers: Sheed helps C's by waiting

Recent reports indicated that Rasheed Wallace might be reconsidering his decision to retire. Celtics coach Doc Rivers, however, said Monday from the Summer League in Orlando that Wallace is helping the team by delaying an official decision.

 

"He's trying to help us out by waiting, which is good,'' Rivers said in a story at AOL FanHouse. "He's still our property so we can use that in a trade or something. He's doing a great thing for us."

 

Rivers said the chances that Wallace will return are "very little or none."

 

Wallace is scheduled to make $6.32 next season and $6.79 million in 2011-12.

Beckett: I should have spoken up

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Speaking prior to the Red Sox' series-opening game against the Rays, Josh Beckett said that he regretted not telling the Red Sox that he shouldn't have pitched in the May 18 game in New York due to the weather, and that the Sox and Yankees shouldn't have played that night. 

 

"I would have been fine if it didn't rain the whole game in New York," said Beckett of the night that included nearly an hour rain delay prior ot the game. "I was well enough to get through that start. I wasn't 100 percent, but if I could have gotten through that start without re-injuring my back and then get five more days, things would have been different.

 

"It just pisses me off because I feel like we could have controlled it. We shouldn't have played that game. It's unfortunate that we played that game and I just happened to line up to pitch that day. But start, stop, start, stop doesn't bother you...
