Jim Rice Has Last Chance to Join the Hall

Posted by Ace Staff on January 12th, 2009

On Monday,  January 12th, 2009, the results of Jim Rice’s last chance to join the Baseball Hall of Fame will be announced. On the ballot for the 15th time, this is the last chance Rice will have. Last year Rice had 73% of the vote, just 16 votes short of enshrinement.  “I just don’t think about it,” Rice told the AP. “The ballots are in. There’s nothing you can do about it. So you can’t change anything, so why worry about it.” Left fielder Rickey Henderson will be on his first ballot, a nearly unanimous shoo-in for the hall. Andre Dawson and Bert Blyleven, both short in their previous years on the list, will try to hit the required 75% again. Boston Red Sox tickets are available now!

Celtics Look to Bounce Back vs Cavs

Posted by Ace Staff on January 9th, 2009

The Boston Celtics have been on a 2-6 skid since having their winning streak derailed by the Los Angeles Lakers. Amid speculation of acquiring Knick Stephon Marbury and the rapidly approaching trade deadline, the C’s need to either right the ship or figure out what they need. The Cavaliers, looking for revenge for being knocked out of the playoffs last year and an opening night loss this year, have usurped the C’s as top team in the NBA in most power rankings. Tip-off is at 8:00pm at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. 2009 Boston Celtics tickets are available now!

Sox to Sign Smoltz, Baldelli, Kotsay

Posted by Ace Staff on January 9th, 2009

The Boston Red Sox have continued to make low-risk, high reward signings this offseason. Career-long Atlanta Brave pitcher John Smoltz will sign a $5 million guaranteed contract with up to $5 million in performance-based incentives.  Rocco Baldelli will have a $500k base salary with $1.75 million in roster bonuses and $5.25 million in performance bonuses. Kotsay’s deal is for $1.5 plus performance incentives. These signings plus Brad Penny’s $5 million contract give the Sox some cheap depth, and a chance to get numbers like their 2007 seasons for a fraction of the cost.

Bruins Snap Losing Streak, Top Ottawa

Posted by Ace Staff on January 9th, 2009

Despite goaltender Manny Fernandez only stopping 26 of 30 shots, the Boston Bruins topped the Ottawa Senators at home on Thursday night. With the game knotted up at the start of the third period, Boston center David Krejci would give Boston the lead with an unassisted goal in the 10th minute. Marc Savard and P.J. Axelsson would each contribute another goal to put the game out of reach. The Bruins still have a 10 point lead over the Montreal Canadiens in the division, and will host them at the Garden on Tuesday, January 13th. Boston Bruins Tickets are available now!

Blazers in Trouble if Miles Signs

Posted by Ace Staff on January 9th, 2009

The Portland Trail Blazers will be in trouble if Darius Miles plays two more games this season. Drafted by the Blazers in 2000, Miles underwent microfracture surgery in 2006 and had his salary taken off the books under a classification of “career ending injury”. After 6 preseason games with Boston, and two regular season games with the Grizzlies, Miles is just two games away from going back on the books for Portland. If his salary is reinstated, the Trailblazers will not only go over the salary cap, but they will also have less money at their disposal for signing new free agents next year. While the Blazers have e-mailed GM’s asking for them to not play Miles, all teams stand to earn $250,000 in revenue sharing if Portland goes over the cap (versus the $28,000 it would cost to play Miles for two games). Portland Trailblazers tickets are available now!

Sox Made Biggest Offer To Teixeira

Posted by Ace Staff on January 7th, 2009

The New York Yankees may have won the Mark Teixeira sweepstakes, but they did not have the biggest offer on the table. The Sox had a 10-year $212 million deal on the table that included two vested option years. Yahoo Sports’ Gordon Edes reports that Boras balked at the option year conditions, and pressed Boston for a contract with an average yearly salary exceeding $23mm. The best per-year offer was still from the Yankees, who Teixeira says were his preferred team all along. Boston Red Sox tickets are available now!

Sox Catcher Situation Still Uncertain

Posted by Ace Staff on January 6th, 2009

Pitchers and catchers report to Red Sox training camp on Feb. 12. Currently, Red Sox fans are not sure who will be the starter among those in attendance. One-time Sox backup Josh Bard was recently signed by the Sox, and prospects Dusty Brown and George Kottaras look to make impacts in the future, but there is still a void in the lineup. Team captain Jason Varitek has yet to re-sign with the team, and his future seems to be up in the air. The speculation is that Varitek’s agent (Scott Boras) wants a deal similar to Jorge Posada’s, something around 4-years $52.4 million. With offseason spending relatively low, a shallow pool of free agents, and some reluctance to trade prospects, Varitek may end up back with the Sox before catchers report.

Source: Celtics and Marbury Closer To A Deal

Posted by Ace Staff on January 6th, 2009

ESPN’s Marc Stein is reporting that Stephon Marbury’s falling out with the New York Knicks could lead to him playing for the Green. With the losses of James Posey and PJ Brown, and the free agent pool quickly dwindling; Marbury could be a low-cost veteran precence off of the bench. Despite recent failures in buyout discussions with the Knicks, Stein’s source says that “it will happen” in due time.  “I didn’t want to be a distraction for the team first and me second” Marbury wrote on his New York Post Blog. “I honestly came to help the team win. Real talk. I was willing to put in the work necessary to earn my starting spot and humble enough to accept coming off of the bench.” The Knicks beat the Celtics 100 to 88 on Saturday in New York.  Boston shot just 29.5% in the second half, and failed to capitalize on late chances to take the game back.
