PawSox win opener over Rochester, 2-1

April 7, 2011

PAWTUCKET – It had all the pageantry of Opening Day, from the introduction to the teams to the unfurling of an American flag in center field and a cannon salute that sounded off at the conclusion of the national anthem.

Aceves could be heading to Boston

April 7, 2011

PAWTUCKET – All appeared to be fine in Alfredo Aceves’ universe when he walked into the home clubhouse shortly after 4 o’clock on Thursday afternoon. The righthander chatted briefly with a reporter before going through the necessary preparations for that night’s start against Rochester.
Those plans were officially scrapped 15 minutes prior to first pitch, as Scott Atchison took Aceves’ spot. It’s believed that the Red Sox will place reliever Matt Albers on the disabled list on Friday and call up Aceves in time for Boston’s home opener against the New York Yankees.

McGair: Boston may need some PawSox relief

April 7, 2011

The Red Sox have certainly provided plenty of grist for the mill. That’s what happens when you begin the season with unprecedented expectations (World Series or bust) only to stumble out of the gate with six straight losses. Agony doesn’t even begin to describe the early-season travails with your Boston baseball club.
We’re not about to declare that hope is lost, especially when you subtract six from 162 and end up with 156, which is how many games the Red Sox have left. Time is on their side.

Lauzon arrested for embezzlement

April 7, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The other shoe dropped for embattled undertaker Todd W. Lauzon as the State Police arrested him for embezzling over $27,000 clients had given him for “pre-need” funeral contracts.
The charges come nearly five months after the director of the now-defunct T. Lauzon Funeral Home had his license suspended by the state Department of Health — allegedly for cremating a body and burying the ashes in a cemetery without obtaining the necessary permits.

MSC softball team wins opener with Cumberland

April 6, 2011

WOONSOCKET — Cumberland High coach Marty Crowley believes he has a strong enough team to contend for a state title come mid-June.
But in his eyes, and perhaps most in Division I, the squad that everyone in the league should be concerned about is last year’s state runner-up Mount St. Charles Academy.
“Absolutely,” he said. “They went to the finals last year. They (basically) got everybody back. They should be the favorites to win the whole thing. They’re good.”

Bill Lee: At his core, he's still a pitcher

April 6, 2011

LINCOLN – At the core of Bill Lee’s multi-faceted personality is a baseball pitcher who remains fascinated -- even at the age of 64 -- by the process of getting batters out.
Lee came here on Wednesday to serve as keynote speaker at the annual “Welcome Home, PawSox” luncheon hosted by the Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce. He walked into Kirkbrae Country Club’s dining area a few minutes before noon, dressed like a cowboy, his still-athletic frame topped off by a wide-brimmed hat that identified the former Red Sox pitcher as a man of great presence.
