The Red Sox have the best record in baseball (who'd a thunk it?), the Bruins could knock the Leafs out of the playoffs tonight, and the greatest living soccer coach calls it quits.

Toronto Globe and Mail "When one line couldn’t score, another would step up and fill the void, so much so that the lowest 10-game segment the Leafs had all year was the 25 goals they scored in the first 10 games of the year."

Boston Globe "Third baseman Will Middlebrooks caught it, but catcher David Ross slid into him, forcing his back to hit the wall. Ross left later in the fifth with a left thigh contusion and Middlebrooks was replaced by Ciriaco to start the seventh because of pain in his right side."

BBC "Ferguson praised the people he felt helped him build the club from a team that had not won a title for 26 years into one of the biggest in the world. "I must pay tribute to my family, their love and support has been essential," he added. "My wife, Cathy, has been the key figure throughout my career, providing a bedrock of both stability and encouragement. Words are not enough to express what this has meant to me."

This segment aired on May 8, 2013.
