McGair: Ryan Kalish leaves game

April 21, 2011

PAWTUCKET -- Ryan Kalish's all-out style resulted in the outfielder leaving Thursday's game with an apparent elbow injury. Playing center field, Kalish dove to take a base hit away from Syracuse's Michael Aubrey in the top of the second inning. The injury seemed to occur when Kalish's right elbow hit the turf just as he made the catch.
Kalish stayed on the ground for several seconds as every PawSox player ran out to the outfield to see what the extent of the injury was. He walked off the field under the assistance of PawSox trainer Jon Jochim, holding his elbow.

McGair: Albers aces final test

April 19, 2011

PAWTUCKET -- Matt Albers tossed two scoreless innings in relief for the PawSox Tuesday night, tossing 27 pitches (17 for strikes). The reliever pitched the sixth and seventh innings, allowing one hit while striking out one. He topped out at 94 miles per hour.
Albers, currently on the DL with a strained lat muscle, is expected to be reinstated by Boston on Thursday, which is the first day he's eligible to come off the disabled list.

McGair: Albers passes first relief test with PawSox

April 17, 2011

PAWTUCKET - Matt Albers looked sharp in the first of two scheduled relief appearances Sunday for the Pawtucket Red Sox. The righthander pitched a 1-2-3 sixth inning, needing just 11 pitches (eight) strikes to set down the heart of the Buffalo Bisons' offense.
Albers threw exclusively fastballs that generally resided in the 93 miles per hour range, according to the McCoy Stadium radar gun. He topped out at 94 mph. His outs came via groundout to third, a fly to center that Ryan Kalish made a nice diving play coming in and a swinging strikeout on a changeup.

McGair: Kris Johnson, Tony Pena Jr. join Pawtucket's pitching staff

April 8, 2011

PAWTUCKET – The Boston Red Sox weren’t the only affiliate to shake up its pitching staff on Friday. The PawSox made two moves, activating Kris Johnson and Tony Pena Jr. Both pitchers were in extended spring training.
Johnson will be placed in Pawtucket’s starting rotation and is expected to make his first start next Tuesday in Buffalo. Johnson (9-26 in two seasons with Pawtucket) takes the spot of Alfredo Aceves, who was summoned to Boston on Friday. Pena Jr. takes the place of reliever Randy Williams, who Pawtucket placed on the disabled list with shoulder soreness.

McGair: Could Larry Brown be the answer to PC's coaching situation?

March 16, 2011

As we finish filling out our brackets – thankfully there are some pools that have chosen to ignore the “First Four” – we do so keeping an eye on Providence College’s ongoing search for the next men’s basketball coach. Some names make sense; others leave a lot to be desired.
With rumor mill in full regale, we present the case for one Larry Brown. No, this isn’t as far-fetched as it may seem.

TN's Tidbits: Iggles vs. Puritans in the Super Bowl?

December 19, 2010

Let's see. The Eagles beat the Giants 38-31 today after trailing 31-10 in the third quarter. DeSean Jackson did his Muhammad Ali impersonation, begging the Giants' punter to keep the ball in-bounds with 14 seconds left, and then he ran 65 yards for the winning touchdown. He is the greatest (kick returner).

Jackson is a very modern player with enormous talent. Nobody makes more big plays in the open field than this guy. He was a bit of a troubled student-athlete in college at California and fell to the second round, where the Eagles took a chance on him.

McGair: Wheeler 'excited' to be pitching for Red Sox

December 18, 2010

There are Christmas presents, and then there's the one Warwick native Dan Wheeler gave to his family Saturday. The veteran relief pitcher has signed a one-year deal with the Boston Red Sox with a vesting option for 2012. Wheeler said he has taken his physical, meaning the deal is complete.
"I've always loved the teams I've played on," said Wheeler Saturday afternoon, "but there's a little part of me that's always wanted to put on the Red Sox uniform. I'm pretty excited about that."
