October 14, 2011

PROVIDENCE — To get a better feel of the Providence College players he was inheriting, Ed Cooley made it a point to watch every Friar game from last season “four or five times.”

McGair: Red Sox in news for wrong reasons

October 13, 2011

Maybe in some perverse way, the Red Sox are enjoying all this attention.
Bad P.R.? Perish the thought. The bottoming out and subsequent fallout of the 2011 season has everyone still chirping even though two weeks have passed since left fielder Carl Crawford acted like a fish out of water in Baltimore, a snapshot that says it all with regards to the club’s sad regular-season finish.

Cumberland tennis coach believes team doesn't belong in state's top division

October 12, 2011

CUMBERLAND — After a little more than an hour on Wednesday afternoon, Cumberland High coach John Jasionowski watched his squad suffer a quick 7-0 loss to Division I power Mount St. Charles Academy.
While most of their matches haven’t been quite as quick, the end result has been status quo for the winless Clippers this fall, owners of an 0-10 mark and last place in I-North. Last year, Cumberland had a similar record in its first season in the state’s toughest division, finishing 2-11 overall.
