An extremely brief update today as hopefully people are out enjoying the day today. The Globe has a reprint of a 1991 Father’s Day column by
Jerome Solomon compares and contrasts the contract situations of Richard Seymour and Terrell Owens in a “Tale of Two Cities” style. I’ll have to give credit to Solomon for attempting to use a little imagination for a column that has become too predictable when it is written by others. Mike Reiss looks at the friendship of Scott Pioli with Indians GM Mark Shapiro. The Red Sox and Indians play a series starting tomorrow.
Gordon Edes’ Baseball Notes start off with a look at first round pick Craig Hansen, who is eager to jump into the Red Sox/Yankees rivalry. He also includes a Red Sox alumni report later on in the piece. Tony Massarotti is Covering all the Bases in his Sunday column, leading off with the vastly improved Indians, who are still in the race. He ends the piece with “Fastballs and Curves” a section of quick hit oneliners.
Peter May’s NBA Notes continues on the theme May has pursued the last few weeks…Larry Brown and Gregg Popovich. He’s got a few draft items, but nothing terribly interesting. Mark Murphy’s NBA notes looks at the return of Phil Jackson.
Kevin Paul Dupont has Pro Hockey Notes.
Bob Ryan’s post from the US Open focuses on darkhorse underdog Jason Gore.
