The Red Sox may be without the services of catcher Christian Vazquez for the 2015 season, who is rumored to undergo Tommy John surgery after getting a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday. How bad does this injury hurt the Red Sox chances? Will recently-acquired Sandy Leon be a factor?
Zolak & Bertrand started Monday's show talking Celtics. This team has been fun to watch down the stretch, but seeing as how this team will be without the majority of its current players when they finally get good again, what would be better for the team in the long term? Making or missing the postseason? Zolak & Bertrand discuss.
Abraham: Vazquez Likely To Undergo Tommy John Surgery
Toucher & Rich talked to the Boston Globe's Pete Abraham Monday morning about Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez, among other topics. Vazquez is meeting with Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday to get a second opinion on his throwing elbow. Meanwhile, the Red Sox have traded for a catcher in Sandy Leon, all but indicating that Vazquez will need Tommy John surgery to repair those damaged ligaments.
Toucher & Rich talked to NESN's Billy Jaffe Monday morning about the Bruins improving their playoff chances by getting two big wins over the weekend. Also, since returning from injury David Krejci has been playing right wing on the team's second line alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. Krejci looks out of sorts playing on the wing, and Billy Jaffe thinks head coach Claude Julien will experiment with some different combinations.
Jon Wallach's fantasy baseball draft lasted 9 hours on Sunday. The Boston Globe's Adam Himmelsbach called in to talk some NCAA Tournament. Did Tuukka Rask have dehydration or diarrhea? Fred thinks it's the latter.
Rich is out sick today. The Bruins got 5 out of 6 points over the last three games, and also got some help last night from Jaromir Jagr helping to defeat Ottawa. The Celtics got crushed by the Clippers. DeAndre Jordan is the worst free throw shooter in the NBA. Tuukka Rask left Saturday's game with "dehydration," which really means diarrhea.
