Late Night With Mike Napoli

The Red Sox and Yankees played until almost 1:00 am last night, going back and forth until Mike Napoli won the game in the bottom of the 11th inning with a solo home run for the 8-7 win.

Napoli’s 11th-inning home run gives Sox 8-7 win – Sean McAdam has a look at an up and down night for the first baseman, who had two home runs, but also two strikeouts and killing a rally by grounding into a double-play with the bases loaded in the eighth.

Red Sox keep good times rolling – Gordon Edes has Napoli ending an “exhausting, exhilarating, maddening, compelling, interminable, sloppy, surprising and dramatic” game with his homer.

Talented Rays a big test for the Red Sox – Nick Cafardo has the red-hot Rays coming into Fenway looking for some payback.

Extension rumors show Red Sox, Pedey meant to last – Michael Silverman looks at what the possible long-term extension means.

Clay Buchholz to meet Dr. James Andrews – Pete Abraham’s notebook has the Sox pitcher going to see the specialist. Buchholz, the faker, is likely looking to see if a burning desire to win can be surgically implanted into himself.

Things to watch at Patriots camp – With New England starting training camp at the end of this week, Mike Reiss takes a look at some things to look out for.

Counting out the Pats after a tumultuous offseason? You might want to rethink that – The new Peter King website, themmqb.com launched today, and former Globe NFL writer Greg A Bedard has his first piece up this morning, a look at the Patriots ability to and history of blocking out distractions.

    I’m not sure I get Bruce’s comment ” Buchholz, the faker, is likely looking to see if a burning desire to win can be surgically implanted into himself.”. Is that sarcasm on his part or is he being critical of Clay. After reading the article, it sort of has me scratching my head as to why he is out.

    Bruce, no problem with your column, however, one small criticism. You forgot to mention that the Red Sox are 13 1/2 games out of last place. I am sure that was an oversight.

    Did D+C piss Howard Stern off? Stern went off on them this morning.

    (Warning: There is a ton of profanity in here.)

      not a big Stern fan (no reason, just never really bothered to listen)…but that was great hearing him rip into D&C

    Tanguay and Minihane go at it on CSNNE’s ST last night.

    Minihane doesn’t get a chance to say anything and wins by Tanguay giving himself a technical knockout.
