New B's Rolston, Mottau in, Zanon out
By: DJ Bean

 Bruins coach Claude Julien said after Tuesday's morning skate that he expects additions Brian Rolston and Mike Mottau to be in the lineup when the B's take on the Senators Tuesday night. Greg Zanon just arrived in Boston and did not take part in the morning skate and will not play Tuesday. 

Julien added that forward Shawn Thornton, who has been sick recently, is expected to be in the lineup. Thornton was present for Tuesday's morning skate. 

Rolston, who was acquired with Mottau from the Islanders Monday, centered Benoit Pouliot and Jordan Caron in the morning skate. 

Julien said he was "really happy with the moves, which provide the B's with depth for the stretch run. 

"Depth doesn't mean they don't belong in our lineup," Julien said, "it means we have a lot more options now."

Pedroia on D&C: Crawford can hit second

Dustin Pedroia was a guest of Dennis & Callahan at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers on Tuesday morning. The second baseman was asked for his thoughts on Josh Beckett's comments to WEEI.com's Rob Bradford regarding "snitches" in the Red Sox clubhouse last September.

Beckett told Bradford "somebody made stuff up, just like somebody made up that we were doing stuff … This is stupid. I don't understand what the big deal is. Somebody was trying to save their own ass, and it probably cost a lot of people their asses. The snitching [expletive], that's [expletive]. It's not good."

"I've thought about this and talked about it before," Pedroia told Dennis & Callahan on Tuesday. "What Josh said, I'm 100 percent with him. Whatever goes on in our clubhouse, that stays in there. It's...

Mashup: Jets LB Scott can seek trade?

Just when it appeared the Jets were ready to move on from all the controversy of the past two months, linebacker Bart Scott reportedly has been given permission to seek a trade after the 31-year-old became frustrated with his diminishing role in the team's defense.

When we last heard from Scott, who has three years left on a $48 million deal, he was giving the middle finger to a reporter in the Jets locker room on departure day in January. That followed a season in which Scott was routinely taken off the field on third down and played fewer snaps than his first two seasons in New York since coming over from the Ravens to be reunited with Rex Ryan.

Now, Scott's agent reportedly told the team that it was "destroying him" to be given a lesser role on the squad.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- According to a major league source, catcher Jason Varitek will announce his retirement on Thursday. The 15-year veteran will accept a role in the Red Sox organization, according to the Boston Globe, which first reported the news of his retirement.

Catherine Varitek, the wife of the catcher, wrote (via twitter): "I could not be more proud of my husband! What a truly remarkable 14 years with the Boston Red Sox. You are a true Champion!"

Varitek, 39, played in 1,546 games with the Sox, including a team record 1,488 as catcher. He hit .256 with a .341 OBP, .435 slugging percentage and .776 OPS, hitting 193 homers and driving in 757 runs. A three-time All-Star, Varitek was also the recipient of a Gold Glove award in 2005.

Chiarelli: Boychuk has mild concussion
By: DJ Bean

 Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Monday at TD Garden that defenseman Johnny Boychuk has a mild concussion after taking a hard hit from Senators forward Chris Neil Saturday. 

The Bruins added two defenseman at Monday's trade deadline in Greg Zanon and Mike Mottau, and when Boychuk is healthy, the B's will have eight blueliners. 

As for Nathan Horton, who is still out with a concussion, Chiarelli said that he expects the forward back before the end of the regular season, but that he isn't certain.

"I expect him back, but with these things, I don't know," he said.
