Actually a pretty light day

Actually a pretty light day for pro links. That’s ok, there’s plenty of stuff from the weekend to read on this site. I’m still irate over that monstrosity of an article in the Globe Magazine…

The Celtics got a win on National TV last night with a 89-65 pasting of the 76ers at the FleetCenter. The Green is now a 1/2 game up on Cleveland for the eight playoff spot in the East and two games behind Miami for the sixth seed, with two games against Miami remaining. Links are over at Fox Sports Net.

Gordon Edes looks at Derek Lowe chartering a plane for a 19-minute flight. Oh yeah, he also looked strong in throwing 88 pitches against the Marlins. Tony Massarotti says Lowe had the sinker in top form yesterday. David Borges looks at Frank Castillo, back in the Red Sox organization. Jeff Horrigan says that Pokey Reese is hoping that his next stint as an opening day shortstop goes better than his last one. Edes’ notebook says that Jack McKeon is a big fan of Reese from their days with the Reds.

Steve Conroy says that large FleetCenter crowds have been giving the Bruins a boost down the stretch run. Ron Idrisano looks at something new for the Bruins…scoring from the blue line.

Kevin Mannix says that the NFL owners meetings will be low on drama.

David Scott wraps up the NCAA tournament coverage, Sunday night shows and tons of other stuff in Scott’s Shots.
