Sports Illustrated's Tom Verducci joined Dennis & Callahan Wednesday morning to discuss the Red Sox and news from around Major League Baseball.
While Verducci was speaking, the Mariners finished a 3-1 victory over the Athletics in 11 innings in the MLB regular-season opener in Japan.
"It seemed to sneak up on a lot of people," Verducci said, acknowledging that the game was not presented well for the American public.
He has a longtime girlfriend, a toddler son and another little one on the way. But that didn?t stop Scott Disick from ditching Kourtney Kardashian just before St. Patrick?s Day and jetting across the country to his favorite party destination: New York.
Scott was seen drinking heavily at the Standard hotel?s beer garden. ?Girls were coming up to say hi,? an eyewitness says. ?He was definitely loving the attention."
Shockingly, In Touch has learned Scott is still in touch with Kim?s ex, even though Kris Humphries is currently feuding with the family. ?He texted Kris to see what he was doing,? a source says, ?and they talked about meeting up!?

"Sometimes you are saying lines on camera that you?ve never even heard or seen written down before," he tells THR. "They are just shouting them at you. It?s kind of like a peanut gallery."

With the Moto2 and Moto3 trucks all departed from the paddock, the Jerez circuit is now the domain of the MotoGP teams for the final test ahead of the season opener at Qatar. Thursday, the eve of the test, saw a massive amount of pit lane activity, but mainly among the photographers as they chased up and down the track shooting the riders in their full season livery for publicity shoots and the official MotoGP.com website.
Jerez is the first time that all of the bikes, both the CRTs which have tested in Spain and the factory prototypes which have tested in Sepang, hit the track at the same time. The difference was immediately obvious, from a mosey up pit lane with a camera. At the CRT end of pit lane, garages were open, and mechanics were working on their bikes in full public display. I strolled past bare chassis with engines standing separately waiting to be fitted, bikes in various stages of undress, and stood taking photographs as mechanics worked on their bikes, undisturbed by my presence.

While they might have been overshadowed by Marc Marquez' impressive debut in Moto2, Spanish rookies Pol Espargaro and Tito Rabat are ready now to take on 2012 in the Moto2 team of former 250 world champion Sito Pons, with technical support from Kalex. Espargaro and Rabat will share a garage with Axel Pons, making the team the largest in Moto2 for the 2012 season. The Pons Racing team had their official team launch today at the "40 Café" restaurant, located in the city center of Madrid. They head to Jerez next week for the final Moto2 test of the preseason, where all of the Moto2 teams will be working with GEO Tech engines for the first time.
Since Espargaro and Rabat joined Axel Pons at the Kalex Pons team at the end of 2011 season, Pol has consistently been the fastest of the three riders at every test session held so far. Espargaro switched from Speed Up to Kalex and immediately felt comfortable on the Kalex, the German machine that won in 2011 in the hands of Moto2 world champ Stefan Bradl: "I really want to start racing", Espargaro told Motomatters.com. "I now have more experience and that makes me feel much more confident. I think we have more chances to do well in 2012".
