With the Patriots playing on Thanksgiving they were on a mini-bye week this past weekend, the Celtics were off Monday and won’t be on the court again until Wednesday, and the Red Sox haven’t made any big splashes during the Hot Stove season. All of this put together equals a few slow days in the Boston sports media.
The only two notable news stories coming out of Monday were Jermaine Cunningham being suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances, and then a report from Kansas City stating the Red Sox have spoken to the Royals regarding a trade of Jon Lester for prospect Wil Myers — although the deal will in all likelihood never happen.
Here are a few of the notable links from this morning:
