Not going to be real extensive today. I had written a long opening, with some BC hoop links and then erased it all by mistake. At this point, just want to bang out some stories and move on.
The Eagles lost for the fourth time in eight games and while there were talks of a No. 1 seed just two weeks, BC could easily be looking at a No. 3 come Sunday. Game stories come from Michael Vega, Mike Shalin and Matt Eagan.
Bob Ryan was also at Madison Square Garden yesterday and debates whether the Eagles were a fraud this season.
Vega also files a notebook.
Rick Klein has word from Washington D.C. on Congress becoming involved with Major League Baseball’s problems with steroid.
There are also several notebooks, with each mainly talking about Bronson Arroyo’s likely move to the bullpen when Wade Miller returns. Not sure why this is such a hot topic since no one has a clue when Miller will be returning. The Red Sox say a month, but recall last year, when Nomar Garciaparra was going to miss a few days of spring training and Trot Nixon was expected back for Opening Day. How did those turn out?
There’s a nice feature in the Globe by Kevin Paul Dupont on Christopher Bourque, who is also known as Ray Bourque’s son who plays at Boston University and Christopher L. Gasper has an update on Peabody’s Jeff Allison. It’s beginning to look like this kid isn’t going to make it and that’s nothing short of tragic.
Finally, Bill Griffith has a look at Dave Jageler leaving WWZN (1510 The Zone) and Eddie Andelman to take over as the play-by-play man for the Pawtucket Red Sox.
There might not be a luckier man in the business. To leave the most miserable, irritating, bitter person in the New England sports media for the ultra-first class PawSox and the great Steve Hyder, Jageler’s new partner, life doesn’t get much better.
