Kevin J. Gibbons, MD, of University at Buffalo Neurosurgery (UBNS) performed the surgery, decompressing Robitaille’s spinal cord and stabilizing his spine.

Jason PridieThe New York Mets announced that they claimed outfielder Jason Pridie off waivers from the Minnesota Twins. To make room on the 40-man roster, the team designated righthanded pitcher Jack Egbert for assignment.

Pridie, 26, appeared in one game for Minnesota last season, entering as a pinch-runner on June 20. He spent the rest of the season playing with the Rochester Red Wings, hitting .265 (136-513) with nine home runs and 53 RBI in 121 games.

Pridie was especially tough against the Bisons, hitting .377 (23-61) with four home runs and 12RBI in 14 games against the Herd.

Medaille takes out Nazareth in men’s volleyball

  • Posted on February 10, 2010 at 10:32 am

Medaille VolleyballThe 14th ranked Medaille College men’s volleyball team wouldn’t need a five set marathon performance to upend NECVA Divisional foe and 15th ranked Nazareth College this time.  The Mavs traveled to Rochester to take on the Golden Flyers on their home court and left town with a convincing straight set win (3-0); (30-28, 30-19, 30-28) to keep them perfect in NECVA Western Division play at (4-0) and (8-2) overall.

The story of the match would be the play of the Mavs trio of Ryan’s.  First was junior setter Ryan Maxwell who directed the Mavs attack with (31) assists while pitching in with (4) blocks and a service ace.  Second saw senior middle hitter Ryan Murdie who matched a team high with (14) kills while hitting at a (.435) clip. Rounding out the trio was senior outside hitter Ryan Metz who also contributed (14) kills in the victory.

Bills Roster Review: Rush Linebackers

  • Posted on February 10, 2010 at 8:16 am

aaron maybinThey say that the lifeblood of the 3-4 defense is a gap-plugging nose tackle and athletic playmakers at the pass-rushing outside linebacker positions. Unfortunately for the Buffalo Bills, the team is lacking just as severely in the pass rusher department as they are in the nose tackle department.

Well, it’s not that bad, I suppose. The Bills actually have solid options here, and if things fall right this off-season, will have two guys that can at least take the field as starters. But the pass rush has long been an issue in Buffalo, and the team’s inability to find athletic young players at the position in the draft now has a negative effect on their transition to the new scheme.

After the jump, we’ll talk about the four players currently on Buffalo’s roster that fit the mold of a 3-4 pass-rushing outside linebacker. Unfortunately for the Bills, only two of those players are natural fits; the other two names on the list probably don’t belong at all. Add this to the needs list, folks!

Timon gets revenge; NT beats the Falls again

  • Posted on February 10, 2010 at 12:20 am

Buffalo Sports DailyWhenever St. Francis and Bishop Timon get together for a boy’s Monsignor Martin Association high school basketball game, there’s only one conclusion you can always draw from.

Neither team nor its fans like each other.

Last month St. Francis held serve on their home floor.  Tuesday night the Tigers returned the favor.  Mike Scarcello’s game-high 22 points led Timon to a 58-54 that was quite spirited both on the floor and in the stands.

Sabres drop fifth in a row with loss to Bruins

  • Posted on February 10, 2010 at 12:19 am

BuffaloSabresThe Buffalo Sabres started poorly against the Boston Bruins Tuesday night and ultimately it cost them a valuable point in the standings.  The Sabres fell into a 2-0 hole in the first period before battling back to tie and force overtime, but the Bruins prevailed in a shootout and the Sabres have now left the ice five straight games without getting two points.

With Ottawa winning against Calgary, they’ve now overtaken Buffalo for first place in the Northeast division.  Each have 72 points but the Senators have more wins to put them on top.

BSD Briefs: February 10

  • Posted on February 10, 2010 at 12:19 am

Buffalo Sports DailyThe Buffalo Sabres fought hard last night, literally, but still couldn’t come away with a victory against the Boston Bruins.  The 2-1 shootout loss was the team’s third straight against an opponent currently on the outside of the playoff race.

But unlike the previous four losses, this was a much grittier Sabres team.  Adam Mair and Craig Rivet dropped the gloves in a pair of brutal fights, while Paul Gaustad unsuccessfully tried to get the gloves off Boston big man Zdeno Chara.  At least the Sabres get a passing grade for effort, which is contrast to last weekend when you’d be hard pressed to believe they cared with their performances.
