I know this was a boston clip but Ken Coleman's call of Yastrzemski's 9th inning catch to preserve (for one out) Billy Rohr's no hit bid in Yankee Stadium was one of the best calls I've ever heard. Keep in mind the reaction of the crowd... it was a road game but it sounds like a Fenway.

Who's this broad Amy K. Nelson on Rome?

She's cute but someone should tell her logo Tees with a blazer looks bad on guys, let alone girls.

Elizabeth Moreau was in Gainesville to cover a University of Florida volleyball match. According to the Gainesville Police Department, Moreau was staying at the Hilton Garden Inn at 4075 S.W. 33rd Place when she got a call in her room at 12:20 a.m.

According to a report by Officer Thomas Hayes-Morrison, the caller told Moreau the hotel was on fire and that she should block the door to her room with towels. The guest complied with the request. Then the caller told Moreau to remove the porcelain lid from the toilet tank and use it to break a window. After complying with the caller's instructions, Moreau told Hayes-Morrison, she became suspicious because the caller made some rude comments to her.

Moreau also told police she had been stalked in the past by a prison inmate.

Capt. Ed Book said the incident remains under investigation.

Nice job by the Greenwich Sports Guy in answering this question. Short, rational response buried by a useless talk about his EPL fandom. I just hope he goes more in-depth if Theo and crew sit idle this winter.

Q: Can you explain how John Henry can afford to pay $476 million for a soccer team but couldn't afford Mark Teixeira?"
-- @davidcaprio (via Twitter)

SG: I can't. By the way, what should I do here? My baseball team (the Red Sox) just bought an English Premier League team (Liverpool), only I already picked an EPL team (Tottenham Hotspur). Do I have to switch? I've only been seriously following Tottenham for 15 months. I've never been to a game at White Hart Lane. I've never worn a jersey. It's not like I have any real ties to them -- it's just a team I randomly picked to follow. If the Red Sox play up the Liverpool connection, play exhibition games in Fenway, make special jerseys and hats that tie both teams together ... I mean, it's going to be tough for me to root for a different team than what will basically be The Red Sox If They Played Soccer In England And Had Even Crazier Fans.

Cablevision, locked in a dispute with Fox that blacked out the first game of the World Series for millions of subscribers, brought out some relief.

The cable company sent an email to its customers Wednesday, saying it would reimburse them the fee if they sign up for a live Internet feed to watch the Texas Rangers play the San Francisco Giants.

Customers who purchase the MLB.com package and forward their purchase confirmation to Cablevision will have a $10 credit applied to their monthly bill within two billing cycles.

MLB charges a $9.95 fee.

The offer came as Fox yesterday rejected a last-minute effort from Cablevision to pay more for its TV stations.


Cablevision still sucks

Nothing; just have Comcast SportNet on and he does a B's segment.

Just commenting that he's kind of a dump.

It's kind of sad that the Comcast station covers the Bs more than NESN does. I stil forget it exists.

Who are these two jokers with Fauria on Pats All Access?

Steve Burton's a nice guy and all but he ought to carry pom-poms when he's around that team. It's embarrassing for a so-called journalist.
