PAWTUCKET – In an ideal world, the Triple-A starting rotation is a cross between veterans and youngsters whose ceiling has yet to be officially defined.
PAWTUCKET – Pictured from left, pitcher Keith Couch, manager Kevin Boles, director of player development Ben Crockett, assistant director of player development Brian Abraham, hitting coach Rich Gedman and pitcher Robby Scott, pose for a photo with the Governors’ Cup on Friday at the media portion of the PawSox' annual Hot Stove event.
The team brought the cup home to McCoy last year as champions of the International League, for the second time in three years.
WOONSOCKET – Mount St. Charles mentor Ray Leveille couldn’t have more blunt after his club stole a thrilling yet nail-biting, come-from-behind 40-38 triumph over Tolman High on Thursday night.
“We didn’t deserve to win that game,” he explained after his Mounties improved to 14-3 overall and 11-2 in Division III-North. “We missed too many free throws, we had too many turnovers; Tolman is a difficult matchup for us because of its size. It has a daunting front line, and that forces you to take outside jumpers.
PAWTUCKET – Talk to Rich Gedman and it’s clear that the PawSox have a new, passionate hitting coach who is invested in the game.
Tom Brady is the best ever. Bill Belichick is the best ever. Super Bowl XLIX was the best (and most-watched) ever. New England sports fans are the most blessed in the nation. Let’s get those declarations out of the way.
Legacies aside, though, the Patriots’ history-making championship season was also a triumph for some of the oldest of old-school virtues.
Patience. Preparedness. Professionalism.
BURRILLVILLE – Isaiah DeSilva is a man of few words, but his elation was obvious after he became one of the newest members of the University of Rhode Island football family on Wednesday afternoon.
PROVIDENCE – It’s becoming a regular habit, that of seeing a Providence College player receive Big East Player of the Week honors.
This time, it was Kris Dunn’s turn to take a bow after the conference bestowed its top weekly honor upon him on Monday. Dunn is the second straight Friar to receive the award as Henton took home the laurel last week. Dunn also received the same honor back on Jan. 12.
KINGSTON – Rhode Island freshman Jared Terrell has produced the top three scoring performances of his young career in the URI’s last three games. The easy explanation for Terrell’s recent run of success is that leading scorer E.C. Matthews missed last week’s game against St. Bonaventure and was limited in the last two games because of a left toe injury.
The next time a professional athlete emphatically states that he/she turns down the volume whenever the media dials up the criticism, do yourself a favor and cue up Julian Edelman’s post-Super Bowl XLIX press conference.
Edelman seized the moment and reminded the world that ESPN football analyst Trent Dilfer had written off New England following its Week 4 blowout loss at Kansas City.
