Sweeney: B's unlikely to make deadline trade

Things have changed drastically and somehow stayed the same all at once for the Bruins under interim head coach Bruce Cassidy.

The Bruins have wins in five of their last six games, and although they are also just four points out of first place in the Atlantic Division, they are currently still on the outside looking in of the playoff picture.

But there is a noticeable jump to the B’s game under Cassidy, who has focused his energy on creating a more balanced four-line attack than the Bruins had under Claude Julien at any point this season. And their defense — and I include the stingiest defense-first defenders like Adam McQuaid and Kevan Miller, who have frequently jumped into rushes in the attacking zone in this group — has activated on a consistent basis and their production is at a season high. It’s a small sample,...

David Price: MLB has to loosen rules on cleats

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Rule changes. Improved time of game. All of it has been surfaced as necessities in order to drop the average age of baseball fans.

But David Price has hope.

“I remember looking at the Yankees a couple of years ago. I was like, ‘Man, there are 15 guys on this team with 10-plus years in the big leagues.’ I don’t know how many they have now, but it’s not double digits. It’s probably nowhere near,” Price told WEEI.com. “When the Yankees are getting younger, you know baseball is getting younger. That’s for sure.”

He might be on to something.

Neither the Yankees and Red Sox have a player born in the 1970’s. And in the majors, there’s not a single participant over 38 years old, with John Lackey currently serving as the game’s elder statesman.

Sure, the pace of baseball might not play to the attention span of the younger demographics...

Brady won't have role in upcoming movie/book

Last week it was learned Tom Brady will have a movie and book come out about him centered around his life post-Deflategate and Super Bowl LI.

Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, the writers behind Disney’s “The Finest Hours” and who were nominated for an Oscar for “The Fighter”, along with New York Times bestselling author Casey Sherman, are the ones heading the project.

Dave Wedge, who was Sherman’s co-author with “Boston Strong” will also be part of the book.

After the report was released, many wondered if Brady himself would be part of it, and the answer to that is no.

“We wish the people involved the best of luck on this project, but we are not involved,” Brady’s agent Don Yee...

Farrell: Castillo held accountable after miscue

FORT MYERS, Fla. — As the 2013 spring training unfolded, one of the unique elements of the Red Sox clubhouse became how accountable the players were to each other.

Jonny Gomes. David Ross. There were a bunch of them who set the tone that year. Do something wrong, you were going to hear about it.

Thursday, this Red Sox team got their first test when it comes making sure there are some sort of checks and balances when Rusney Castillo forgot how many outs there were, didn’t run out a ground ball and ultimately fell victim to a 6-4-3 double play.

“I’m confident in saying that same mutual accountability exists, even though that was a more veteran team,” said Red Sox manager John Farrell Friday morning. “This is a young group that, in that instance yesterday, there was a collective acknowledgement that that’s not the way we play the game. Whether it’s conversation in the dugout or after the game, that gives me that...

Gronk: Goodell couldn't get to Gillette Stadium

Everyone knows by now Roger Goodell hasn’t been to Gillette Stadium since Deflategate.

During Super Bowl week the Kraft family made sure to let Goodell know he is welcome at the stadium if he would like to attend a game, but according to Rob Gronkowski, Patriots fans wouldn’t let the commissioner even near the stadium.

“To tell you the truth, I really don’t think so,” Gronkowski said in an interview with ESPN’s Cari Champion. “The fans are nuts, they’re wild, and they have the Patriots’ back no matter what. They have Tom [Brady]’s back. I’m telling you, [he] wouldn’t get through the highway if our fans saw him. So I don’t think he can even land in the airport in...
