Van Pelt, Stricker repeat as CVS Caremark Charity Classic champions

June 24, 2014

BARRINGTON — If PGA stalwarts Steve Stricker and Bo Van Pelt had their way, they'd return to the CVS Caremark Charity Classic every summer.
The only problem? Given the duo's remarkable success at Rhode Island Country Club over the past two years, tournament co-hosts and local favorites Brad Faxon and Billy Andrade joked about their possible return after a wildly-entertaining finish early Tuesday afternoon.
When asked if there was anything he would change about the event, Faxon grinned, “I wouldn't invite Stricker back. He's too good.”

Even with newfound attention, PawSox's Betts remains as cool as ever

June 24, 2014

PAWTUCKET — It wasn’t Mookie Betts’ intention to create a firestorm. Thanks to his strong play since joining the PawSox three weeks ago coupled with Red Sox manager John Farrell’s impromptu “I know Mookie Betts is swinging the bat well” remark last weekend, the 21-year-old wunderkind is being seen in a different light.

In response to the attention that goes with the territory of being the flavor of the moment, Betts sought out Kevin Boles. The last thing Betts wanted to do was to make the life of the PawSox manager even more chaotic.

Victorino hopes to play nine innings with PawSox before heading back to Boston

June 24, 2014

PAWTUCKET — In the world of target dates and timetables, Shane Victorino’s bid to rejoin the Red Sox during the team’s current West Coast sojourn came up well short.

With Wednesday marking the final game of a three-game set in Seattle, the best that Victorino can hope for is a return this weekend in New York. In order reach the point where the Red Sox feel comfortable enough to activate him, it’s safe to say that the outfielder will have to withstand the challenge of playing nine innings.
