Sox acquire Andrew Miller from Marlins

The Red Sox announced that they have acquired lefthanded pitcher Andrew Miller from the Marlins in exchange for Dustin Richardson. Miller was at one time a highly-regarded prospect, who was drafted sixth overall by the Tigers out of the University of North Carolina in 2006. He was later traded to the Marlins with Cameron Maybin for Miguel Cabrera.

 

The 6-foot-7 Miller made his big league debut a few months after being drafted, but he has struggled to stay in the majors. He appeared in only nine games last season with the Marlins, making seven starts, and posted an 8.54 ERA. Richardson pitched in 26 games out of the bullpen for the Sox, but  walked 14 batters in 13 innings.

J. O'Neal returns to Boston, out Saturday

The Celtics announced via Twitter that center Jermaine O'Neal has returned to Boston, rather than travel to Memphis for the last game on the Celtics four-game road trip. O'Neal sat out Thursday's game against the Heat with a left knee injury and he sought a second opinion in Miami while the team was there.

 

There was little hope that he would be able to play Saturday against the Grizzlies, and that leaves the Celtics with 11 healthy players while Delonte West sits out the final game of his 10-game suspension. O'Neal has been hampered by a number of injuries -- hamstring, wrist -- but the knee injury seems like a more significant concern.

Light on Big Show: 'Great test' for offense

Patriots left tackle joined The Big Show to talk about this week's matchup with the Steelers and also take one last look back at what went wrong against the Browns. Light called the Steelers "a great test for our offense," and noted that Troy Polamalu, particularly stands out.

 

"Troy Polamalu is a dynamic player at his position and the things he does in that defense," Light said. "He's fun to watch. You hope you don't watch him make too many big plays when you're playing against him. They've got a lot of good players. Hats off to them and their style and how they play it. It's a great test for out offense." 

 

Light said there isn't any great mystery when it comes to playing the Steelers. "It's not like the Steelers have 30 different packages that they throw out there on the field," he said. "They pretty much play their defense. For the most part you're going to see a 3-4...
