WINNING! USA TODAY’s Michael Hiestand noted actor Charlie Sheen will be alongside Fox’ Tim McCarver and Joe Buck for the net's broadcast of Yankees-Mets on Saturday. Sheen will “plug his sitcom, ‘Anger Management,’ which premieres June 28” (USA TODAY, 6/22). In California, Jim Carlisle writes the interview “figures to be more entertaining than the game” (VENTURA COUNTY STAR, 6/22).
MIC CHECK: In Boston, Chad Finn cites sources as saying that Gil Santos is “expected to be behind the microphone for his 36th season as the radio play-by-play voice of the Patriots.” His return is “an extraordinary development given his health problems over the winter.” Still to be determined is “whether Santos will work a full schedule,” and whether Santos’s longtime partner Gino Cappelletti “will return as well" (BOSTON GLOBE, 6/22).
NO SLEEP 'TIL BROOKLYN: NEWSDAY is launching a Nets blog, and Roderick Boone wrote it will seek to be a "one-stop shop for everything Nets related.” With the Nets’ move to Brooklyn complete, "they're once again in play for us and it's time to get back into the game” (NEWSDAY.com, 6/21).
