PawSox scorekeeper talks about his job

August 8, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Bruce Guindon would like to set the record straight regarding his role as the Pawtucket Red Sox official scorer.
First off, the International League, not the PawSox, employs Guindon. Translation: He is not in the home team’s back pocket. The Pawtucket native and registered Interscholastic League football and hockey official is empowered and instructed to make the correct call, the right one.

Millwood is granted release by Red Sox; uncertain of future

August 7, 2011

PAWTUCKET — Kevin Millwood’s tenure with the Pawtucket Red Sox has come to an end. Now the 36-year-old will have to weigh whether to seek out another opportunity or bow out gracefully, a decision that could be complicated based on the right-handed pitcher’s belief that he still has something to give.
For now, though, Millwood plans on visiting family he has based up and down the East Coast and squeeze in as many rounds of golf as possible. That sounds like someone who isn’t optimistic he’ll be on a mound again this season.

PROVIDENCE — His hair soaking wet and his feet inside some soggy pair of racing flats that just endured more than an hour’s worth of rainfall, Patrick Moulton sized up the weather for the inaugural Rock ‘n’ Roll Providence Half Marathon on Sunday morning with a glass-half-full approach.
“It got tough, but at least it wasn’t hot,” he said. “It got gusty a few times, but for August you can’t complain. It could have been 100 degrees out there.”

August 5, 2011

PAWTUCKET – Brett Carroll wasted no time fitting in with the Pawtucket Red Sox
Carroll blooped a two-out, two-run single to give the PawSox their third walk-off win of the week, this one a 6-5 triumph against Buffalo Friday night.

Erik Bedard's college coach defends Red Sox pitcher

August 5, 2011

As the associate head coach at Norwalk (Conn.) Community College, Patrick Vigilio enjoyed a front row seat to see Erik Bedard go from an unknown with tried-and-true Canadian roots to a bona fide staff ace.
“Erik was a hockey player for the most part. Most kids in Canada are because they don’t have high school baseball up there,” recalled Vigilio in a telephone interview Friday. “He was throwing in the mid 80s when he started out, but through hard work he was able to take his game to the next level, obviously.”

Brady appreciates rookies' plight

August 5, 2011

FOXBORO – Tom Brady is especially glad he’s not a rookie this year – for a couple of reasons.
“Not only because their salaries got cut in half,” said the New England Patriots quarterback, referencing the NFL’s newly ratified collective bargaining agreement.
Rookies are also tasked with an accelerated acclimation to NFL life because of the league’s 4 1/2-month lockout.
A week into his 12th training camp with the Patriots, Brady acknowledges that this one is unique.
