June 14, 2013

– Dustin Pedroia (256 at-bats in 66 Double-A games. Reached Pawtucket at age 22).
– Will Middlebrooks (37 at-bats in 96 Double-A games. Reached Pawtucket at age 22).

Are jurors influenced by social media?

June 14, 2013

Reputed Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger is an 83-year-old man federal prosecutors say was responsible for 19 murders before he went on the lam in 1994.
Jodi Arias is a 32-year-old ex-waitress from Arizona who’s facing the death penalty in the grisly killing of her lover, stabbed 27 times, his throat slashed and shot in the face.
As criminal types, they have about as much in common as rocks and birds. But here’s something that may help them both: In the age of social media, it’s easier than ever for the jurors sitting in their cases to screw up.

'X' marks the spot: Bogaerts lands in Pawtucket

June 13, 2013

PAWTUCKET – The worst-case scenario that Xander Bogaerts envisioned never came to pass.
Initially, Bogaerts thought he was being summoned to the manager’s office because he didn’t protest a strike three call that came with the count full. Portland’s Kevin Boles felt the decision that went against the highly-touted prospect was egregious. Protesting balls and strikes usually results in a swift ejection, which Boles eventually received after attempting to stick up for his shortstop.

LINCOLN – A senior from the high school was reported hurt Thursday afternoon when the car he was driving struck a utility pole and rolled over onto its roof.
Police Chief Brian Sullivan said Devin Lambert, 18, of Main Street in Albion, had been heading south on Anna Sayles Road after leaving the school and struck the pole near the small rotary at Great Road.
