Red Sox' Kalish continues to stay positive on comeback trail; St. Raphael alum Chris Iannetta reflects on catching Jered Weaver's no-hitter

May 4, 2012

In the year-plus quest that has taken Ryan Kalish to the far reaches of dealing with injuries and back again, the Red Sox outfield prospect has learned that it’s best to not get his spirits up too much or sink too low. On the subject of looking ahead, i.e. placing a definitive date on when he might return to game action, Kalish prefers to stay in the moment.
When team officials inform Kalish that he’s passed every single checkpoint, only then will he be allowed to vacate the Fort Myers, Fla. premise that’s served as his holding cell for some time now.

Mounties rally to top Lions

May 4, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Two teams heading in opposite directions met up Friday with Mount St. Charles maintaining its winning ways courtesy of a come-from-behind 5-3 triumph at Lincoln High’s expense.
Now winners of three of its last four, MSC hung on a four-spot on visiting Lincoln in the home portion of the sixth, erasing what was a 3-1 deficit. The inning began innocently enough with Taylor Sutherland reaching on an error with Dan Glod singling to make it first and second.

Error-prone MSC softball team falls to N.K., 7-5

May 3, 2012

WOONSOCKET --- Mount St. Charles got a ‘D’ for its defense on Thursday afternoon.
The Mounties committed a half dozen errors in its Division I crossover showdown with North Kingstown, and while those miscues led to only two unearned runs, that turned out to be the difference in the visiting Skippers’ 7-5 victory that gave the Division I-South leaders their sixth straight win.
This game was a neat back-and-forth affair until the Skippers (8-1) rallied for three runs in the top of the fifth inning to claim their two-run lead.

WEB ONLY: Agent talks about Aaron Cook getting his shot with Boston and Youkilis landing on the disabled list

May 2, 2012

Call it a case of all’s well that ends well as Aaron Cook is officially a member of the Boston Red Sox.
Reached Wednesday night, Joe Bick, Cook’s agent, says he went ahead and filed the necessary “opt-out notification” paperwork shortly after the clock struck midnight and the calendar read May 2, one day following the May 1 opt-out clause that the veteran pitcher had written into the minor-league deal he signed back in January.

Rainville, Lawrence lead Novans past Northmen

May 2, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Skipper John Marsella refused to let junior Brandon Rainville step into the batter’s box after he suffered an injury to his right pinkie finger earlier in the season.
The hiatus: Two weeks, and Rainville was just itching to get back into the lineup.
“He took some swings (Tuesday) and he looked OK; he said he felt OK, so we let him hit (Wednesday),” Marsella stated. “Still, we batted him ninth (in the order) because we didn’t want him to have too many at-bats.”

Reached Monday night, Joe Bick, the agent for Cook, spelled out a step-by-step process that included all involved parties.

BOSTON – The sight of Josh Reddick sporting a green and gold Oakland A’s uniform inside Fenway Park Monday night only further augments the idea that not every drafted-and-developed Red Sox type has a seat waiting for him at the parent club’s table.

April 29, 2012

The checklist of what to keep tabs on during college basketball’s offseason used to be simple and straightforward. You would look at the pool of underclassmen declaring to take their game to the next level by applying for the NBA Draft, which in turn sparks debate as to whether the decision made is foolhardy or correct.
