    Boston Red Sox retired the uniform number 14 of Jim Rice, just two days after he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
    The Boston Red Sox retired the uniform number 14 of Jim Rice, just two days after he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

    The ceremony took place prior to Tuesday’s 9-8 setback in 11 innings against the Oakland Athletics.

    Rice is the seventh Red Sox player to have his number retired, joining Bobby Doerr (1), Joe Cronin (4), Johnny Pesky (6), Carl Yastrzemski (8), Ted Williams (9), and Carlton Fisk (27).

    Over 16 seasons from 1974-89, Rice batted .298 with 382 home runs and 1,451 RBI in 2,089 games, earning eight All-Star selections and the 1978 AL MVP award along the way.

    Wow! It just keeps coming. First a big steroid scandal and now an affair with (what reportedly was) a minor? According to a report in the New York Daily News,  Roger Clemens had a decade-long affair with country star Mindy McCready. Allegedly this “romance” started when Clemens was still a member of the Boston Red Sox baseball team and the “young” Miss McCready was only 15-years old trying to get into the music business.

    “He flatly denies having had any kind of an inappropriate relationship with her,” lawyer Rusty Hardin said. “He’s considered her a close family friend. … He has never had a sexual relationship with her.”

    Clemens, under investigation for perjury, filed a  lawsuit against his former trainer Brian McNamee stating his reputation has been damaged. If the allegations about a romantic link to the country singer McCready do come to light, that could mean big points for Brian McNamee’s legal team in the legal battle currently waging.

    Will the Rocket be grounded? I say, if he is retiring, let him retire in peace.

    Talk about some silly shit! In sports news last week, construction workers building the new Yankee Stadium revealed that another worker who is a big Red Sox fan hoped to put a “jinx” on the Red Sox Nation’s number one enemy by secretly burying a Red Sox jersey in the concrete foundation of the new stadium.

    The Yankees didn’t appear very concerned. Basically stating there is no truth to the rumor. In a statement released Friday, they called it a 10 day late April Fool’s joke.

    Saturday it appeared as if their tune had changed. After about five hours of drilling, they finally located the shirt under 2 feet of concrete. Sunday, they pulled the jackhammered No. 34 David Ortiz Red Sox jersey in shreds from the battered hole in the foundation.

    Two days ago it was a joke to the Yankee organization. Now they are destroying the concrete foundation of their new
    $ 1.3 Billion structure? There has even been talk with the district attorney’s office about possible criminal charges against Gino Castignoli, the worker who allegedly buried the jersey in cement.

    I guess with all the money the Steinbrenner family has and can throw around, a few days off schedule and a few more dollars to repair the foundation of their new home, what’s the harm. Right?

    I think the thing the Yankees need to be more concerned about is not a so-called “jinx” but the safety of their fans and members of all the visiting teams. I’m no structural engineer, but I do know I wouldn’t feel safe knowing some paranoid people went drilling, digging and jackhammering just for a small piece of fabric that would have no effect on the structural integrity of the new stadium.
