Mashup: Jeter laughs off owner's criticism

Yankees star Derek Jeter and owner Hank Steinbrenner downplayed Steinbrenner’s comments from Monday that some players weren’t focused enough last season after the World Series title in 2009. Steinbrenner referenced unnamed players “building mansions and other things, not concentrating on winning.” Jeter has been building a 30,000-square-foot home in the Tampa area for the past three years.

 

Steinbrenner reportedly got word to Jeter on Tuesday that the captain was not the target of his ire, and Jeter laughed off the comment. “I have no problem with Hank — he didn’t say it to me. I don’t think my name came out of his mouth,” Jeter said. “Don’t make it out that I have a problem.”

Rondo helps Celtics break Warriors hex

Rajon Rondo turned 25 on Tuesday and he capped his day with a 19-point, 15-assist performance as the Celtics snapped their Golden State jinx with a 115-93 win over the Warriors. The last time the Celtics won in Oakland, Jiri Welsch started alongside Paul Pierce and Mark Blount and Ricky Davis scored double figures. That was December of 2003.

 

This Celtics-Warriors game followed a familar script for a time. The Celtics opened up a big early lead but looked tired and slow as Golden State ran up and down the floor. But the Celtics recovered to tie the game at halftime and then put the defensive hammer down in the second half, allowing just 33 points. Kevin Garnett added 24 points and 12 rebounds, Paul Pierce scored 23 and Ray Allen chipped in with 18. Glen Davis added a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Delonte West and Semih Erden also returned to the lineup but combined to miss five shots and neither scored in 26 minutes....

Lucic, Thomas lead Bruins past Flames

Milan Lucic had a pair of goals and Tim Thomas made 28 saves to lift the Bruins to a 3-1 win over the Flames Tuesday night in Calgary. Boston, which went to 3-0 on its six-game road swing, never trailed on the night, as Lucic scored the only goal of the first two periods when he connected with his 25th of the season 59 seconds into the game to give the Bruins an early lead. Brad Marchand made it 2-0 5:55 into the third period. Calgary's Curtis Glencross cut the lead to one with a power-play tally with just over two minutes left, but Lucic potted an empty-net tally to finish the scoring.

Report: Sox to extend Francona thru 2013

FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Red Sox "intend to" exercise the two-year option on manager Terry Francona's contract at the end of this season, according to Jon Heyman of SI.com on his twitter page. The option is worth $4.5 million per season and would extend Francona's contract through 2013, if picked up. 

 

"I know nothing about their decision," Francona told Heyman, who was in Fort Myers on assignment Tuesday. 

 

Francona guided the Red Sox to their first World Series title in 86 years in 2004, his rookie season as a Red Sox skipper. He also led the team to another title in 2007, and has let the Red Sox to the playoffs in five of his seven years as manager.
