Red Sox 12, Phillies 2: Early show at Fenway - Eric Avidon wonders if social services should be called for what the Red Sox did to the 47-year-old Moyer.

Upon further review, the Red Sox offense has been just fine - Ron Chimelis notes that for all the talk prior to the season about the Red Sox offense being the weak link, it actually has been a strength.

Last hurrah for Lowell as a Red Sox? - Alex Speier wonders if last night’s home run was the last highlight we’ll see from Mike Lowell as a member of the Red Sox.

Humbling time for Moyer, Nelson - Joe McDonald notes that last night for humbling for two pitchers, each for different reasons.

Celtics

Putting Finals pieces together - Dan Shaughnessy with a number of items and thoughts on the finals. Not bad, though I did shudder that he somehow managed to work a “Spygate” reference in there.

Game 5 could be Allen’s last in Boston - Chris Forsberg looks at what could be the end of the line for Ray Allen in Boston.

Brought to its knee by injury - Steve Bulpett says that without Andrew Bynum, it looked a lot like 2008 out on the court. The Lakers ARE a different team without him.

I’m not sure why though, the Lakers rely so much on Bynum. His talent is undeniable, but he just can’t stay on the court. He’s played in 82 games in a season just once, and the most other than that was 65 this year. In his five seasons in the NBA, he’s played in 46,82, 35,50 and 65 games. That fact that he’s hurt now shouldn’t be a surprise.

Game 5 offshoot four-gone conclusion - Gary Washburn says that tomorrow night has to be the Celtics night if they have any hopes of a title.

Celtics full of fight - Dan Duggan says that it is the resiliency of this Celtics team that really stands out.

      If you like scoring then you must love cricket – they usually score more than 300 points. I don't know why people complain about the scoring or does it bring back painful memories of not scoring when they were in college?
