A year ago BC right guard Chris Lindstrom was a 265-pound freshman who missed a block that resulted in a season ending injury for his QB. This year, Lindstrom is up to 305 and one of the reasons Steve Addazio thinks his O-line can make a big stride. "He's going to be a first-rounder in a few years," Addazio said.

Mookie Betts had fluid drained from his knee two days ago, leading to diminished swelling and less discomfort when he tested it by running earlier today. But manager John Farrell said the Red Sox "don't fully expect [the fluid] to vanish," a sign that Betts might need a few days off during a brutal August in which team makes two 11-game road trips and has one off-day.
