Now that the MLB All-Star Game is in the past, it’s time to focus on more pressing issues in Boston sports besides the outrageous snubbing of Kevin Youkilis.
Here are some numbers that will make your head spin.
101: Number of days since Josh Beckett’s last win with the Red Sox, his only win of the 2010 season. Beckett has been sidelined since May 19 with a strained back and will make his return to the Red Sox on Friday when he takes the mound in Seattle.
$43,334,400: Combined 2010 salaries of the eight Red Sox players — Josh Beckett, Clay Buchholz, Jacoby Ellsbury, Jeremy Hermida, Mike Lowell, Victor Martinez, Dustin Pedroia and Jason Varitek — who are currently on the disabled list. Buchholz comes off the DL on Wednesday, removing a mere $443,000 from the total.
$32,500: Amount of money that Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka has donated to the Red Sox Foundation in 2010 as part of "Dice-K’s Strikeouts for Kids." The Japanese-born right-hander donates $500 per strikeout to the foundation, and has struck out 65 batters so far in 2010.
$41,700,000: Amount of guaranteed money that Detroit Lions quarterback and No. 1 overall pick Matthew Stafford received in his record-breaking contract in 2009. Former Oklahoma University quarterback and St. Louis Rams first overall pick Sam Bradford is looking to break that record this week, as his contract is expected to be in the $45 million to $50 million range.
72: Amount of points that Bruins rookie Joe Colborne registered in 79 career games for the University of Denver from 2008-10. Colborne shares his experience of Bruins development camp each day this week on NESN.com.
3,003: Distance in miles between Boston, Mass., and Newport Coast, Calif., where Celtics forward Paul Pierce married his fiancee, Julie Landrum, in an oceanfront ceremony.
