Here is a recap of Boston Sports Friday:
The Red Sox lost to the Twins, 5-0. Jon Lester got roughed up in the first inning, but Tim Wakefield looked good. Ryan Kalish and Jose Iglesias got starts.
The Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers, 96-86. Kevin Garnett led the team with 22 points, and Rajon Rondo scored 16 in the second half.
The Rays beat the Yankees 12-7. Joba Chamberlain struggled in his 1 1/3 innings, while David Price gave up two hits and a walk.
The Cavaleirs beat the Pistons 99-92. Scary moment as Rodeny Stucky collapsed on the bench and was rushed to the hospital. The Pistons say he is OK.

Ok, the NFL season is now over for many teams. But not the Patriots, or 11 others. The playoffs begin with Wild Card weekend next week, and here are some playoff matchups.
Saturday 1:00 pm: Jets at Bengals- Bengals trump the Jets. Period. Sanchez will not get it done. And the Bengals did not give away any stradegy Sunday night. I think they will win by at least a touchdown. But don’t tell Rex Ryan, beacuse according to him there “Is a new dynasty in NY”
Saturday 8:00 pm: Eagles at Cowboys- I have a tough time saying that the ‘Boys will beat the Eagles again. But this QB matchup is so confusing. McNabb and Romo can blow it any time. But I think the Cowboys defense is better and they win a tight one.
Sunday 1:00 pm: Ravens at Patriots- It’s gonna be tough without Welker. But I think the Pats can still be dangerous. Edelman looked good Sunday. But this defense is a tough one. Without Welker now, the Ravens defense has it easier. I still think the Pats win a close game without much scoring.
Sunday 4:40 pm: Packers at Cardinals- This matchup intrigues me the most. Either of these teams can win the Super Bowl. I say the Packers pull it out though. Aaron Rodgers has impressed me.
