MULDOON HONORED BY COACHES

As far as we know, the Mass. Football Coaches Association has never been to The Eagle-Tribune’s sports archive -- aka the house Michael Muldoon built, maintained and continues to watch over. If they did, it would never taken them as long as they did to honor our colleague Muldoon with the annual media award for his diligent service to the student-athletes of Massachusetts for nearly three decades now.

Muldoon accepted the award this weekend at the coaches annual banquet.

“Mike and I go back a long, long way, back to the days both of us were first starting out,” said president Jim Pugh of Masconomet Regional. “He’s done so much for high school sports, the athletes and specifically football.”

Congratulations to Muldoon for continuing on a distinguished career and for a job well done.

EASE UP, YAZ

If Mike Yastrzemski doesn’t ease up, he may ruin the Longos’ planned summer vacation and get promoted from the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds. We’ve got tickets to see Yaz, Lawrence’s Dennis Torres and the Shorebirds at Hagerstown in late June, then absorb some American history at the Antietam and Gettysburg battle sites.

But the way Yaz is going, he may be gone by then. The St. John’s Prep and Vanderbilt product from Andover has bumped the batting average up to .293.

Torres, who pitched at UMass, has taken a regular turn out of the Shorebirds’ bullpen. The righty is 0-3 with a 4.15 ERA, but that number is bloated by one bad early outing. In his last five appearances, Torres owns a 1.45 ERA.

TRYING TO LOSE WITH LESTER?

Consider me a conspiracy theorist to the max, but can I ask you about that lineup John Farrell threw behind John Lester yesterday as the Red Sox dropped Game three of the series in Toronto.
