Monday Wrap – 06.18.07

Probably won’t have a morning post tomorrow as I’ve got to be at Logan at 6:30 to pick up a family member.

My “headline dashboards” for each of the four major Boston pro teams are now finished, and you can use them at any time to check out the latest headlines from the local papers, national sites and fan blogs on the local teams.

This morning on WEEI, right after the “headlines” segment, and after the show had been sent o commercial, the following apology was run, read by John Dennis:

On February 16th 2007, we discussed the criminal case of Patrick Doyle who had recently been sentenced in Essex Superior Court. During the show, we made statements suggesting that members of the Doyle family, including a District court judge, a retired district court judge, and an assistant district attorney had made phone calls to the sentencing judge or otherwise had influenced the outcome of Mr Doyle’s sentence. We want to make it clear to the public that we did not mean to claim that any member of the Doyle family had actually done anything improper and that we did not have any information to support those statements. We apologize to the Doyle family and to the public for any confusion our statements may have caused.

If you’re wondering, this is the case to which that apology is referring to. I’m personally not too worked up over the insinuations made by D&C.

Speaking of the WEEI morning show, it’s been great to hear Bob Neumeier in the mornings. I wouldn’t mind a full time return to the station for Neumy.

From Chad Ford on ESPN Insider today, regarding possible destinations from Kevin Garnett:

If KG’s not going to Chicago, where could he go? From what I’m hearing — and at this point it’s just a hot rumor — the Wolves and Boston Celtics are talking about a Garnett deal.

In this scenario, Boston would send Al Jefferson, Gerald Green, Sebastian Telfair, Theo Ratliff, and change to Minnesota along with the No. 5 pick in the upcoming draft. In exchange, the Celtics would get Garnett.

Jefferson AND Green AND the No. 5 pick? No thanks.

Apparently it was just another day in the NFL. Pacman Jones is in trouble again, another Bengal was arrested, and another NFL player (LaVar Arrington) was involved in a motorcycle accident.

Tony Massarotti says that Bud Selig and Tony LaRussa have a tough decision on whether to add Barry Bonds to the National League roster for the All Star game which is being held in San Francisco this year.

Dan Guttenplan says that it is clear the Bonds didn’t get the message this weekend. He also seems to suggest that baseball had the Giants made the Red Sox “natural rivals” this season and did that just so that Bonds could face the adverse conditions of Boston this season, while chasing the home run record. Neither is true of course, as the interleague rotation is set up years in advance.

Mike Fine looks at the bats returning to action for the Red Sox yesterday. Alan Greenwood and Bob Stern have more coverage from yesterday’s game.
