Thanks to the good folks at Mohegan Sun for a fun weekend away. The rest and recharge was greatly appreciated by Mrs. Matty, myself, Jeff, Mr. Sparky Joe and their respective families!
The Red Sox used a partially closed roof to their advantage, riding a solid peformance from Dice-K to a 3-2 win over the Blue Jays.
Josh Beckett looked good in a rehab outing in Pawtucket.
The Red Sox are America's 2nd favorite baseball team. (guess who's number one?)
On April 17th, 1951, the Boston Red Sox played the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. It was the PA announcer's first day, and players included Ted Williams, Joe Dimaggio, and Mickey Mantle. On Sunday, that PA Announcer, Bob Sheppard, passed away at the age of 99.
Adrian Beltre strained a hamstring in the 7th inning, yesterday.
Jacoby Ellsbury and the Sox need to move forward quickly.
Remember those reports late last week that Tony Allen was close to a deal to return to Boston? Not so much. Chris Wallace strikes again, signing TA to a 3 year, 9.7 million dollar deal. So, the back-up for Ray Allen and Paul Pierce is going to be who?
Luke Harangody played very well in the Orlando Summer League.
The Celtics have interest in Josh Howard, but would have to get creative to get him.
Great fan turnout for the Bruins development camp.
Vegas over/unders on the 2010 Patriots.
The National Football Post takes a look at Leigh Bodden and his contract.
Portland knocked off New Britain.
