Baseball Beanpot, latest on Raji and other links
No luck with anything Beanpot related for BC. The baseball team lost to struggling UMass in the opener of the Beanpot. They allowed the Minutemen to score three runs in the final two innings. BC plays Harvard in the consolation game next week.
The Raji parents have now come to B.J.'s defense on the drug test issue. In the Globe Reiss tries to get to the bottom of it all. The confusing part for me is that Raji's agents are now on the offensive saying they haven't heard from the NFL and using the NFL's silence as confirmation that test story was bogus. Yet I've read in a couple of places that the NFL doesn't release the test info to teams until April 20. So they are going around claiming innocence and there is a chance that they could still be burned by an NFL report. I think it is best that they all just take a wait and see and B.J. focuses on his team interviews.
