Holt's durability isn't lost on PawSox

June 25, 2014

PAWTUCKET — There have been three editions to Paul Dickson’s handy and comprehensive “The Dickson Baseball Dictionary,” though no revised version has graced bookstore shelves in the past five years.

If and when Dickson gets around to updating the game’s vernacular – 952 pages of words and phrases suggests that the author has covered all the bases (no pun intended) – he should make it a point to insert the full name of the Red Sox’ current version of a Swiss Army knife: Brock Holt.

Mayor: Time to relocate Registry

June 24, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Where’s the best location for the new registry of motor vehicles in the city?

It doesn’t matter who you talk to – from the chief of the state Division of Motor Vehicles to the mayor and the guy on the street – everyone seems to come up with the same answer: Put it in one of the hollowed-out retail plazas on Diamond Hill Road.

“I’m promoting it from an economic development standpoint,” said Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt. “We’re all concerned about the exodus we’ve seen up there and we need to regenerate an area that’s been deflated.”

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.
