CHANDLER, Ariz. -- New Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks was thrown into controversy earlier this offseason, shortly after leaving the White Sox. The pitcher told MLB.com that he was "looking forward to playing for a manager who knows how to run a bullpen," inspiring a series of profane tweets from Oney Guillen, with the son of White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen taking several personal shots at the former Chicago closer.
On Thursday, while taking a break from working out with Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia (and other major leaguers), Jenks shrugged off Oney Guillen's comments.
"I'm not really disappointed because there was no one who was affiliated with the team that was talking crap," he said. "This was coming from the manager's son, who gave his own opinion. I did an interview as heartfelt as I could, all the things about leaving the team. Of course I was upset. I had been there for so...
Yankees legend Reggie Jackson ripped Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie on Thursday, telling him: “Shut up and play football.”
The slugger, a guest on ESPN 1050 in New York, didn’t hold back when it came to talking about Cromartie, who called Patriots quarterback Tom Brady an “ass----.”
“What are you talking about? What are you doing? Shut up, play football,” Jackson said. “What are you talking about [Patriots coach] Bill Belichick and these people for? Spend your time looking at film, spend your time knocking down a pass. What are you doing? You’re not affecting Brady; you’re wasting time.”
Jackson said Cromartie didn’t have the resume to be calling out Brady.
“Go look at the hardware, dude. Walk through the lobby up there and look at the stuff that’s there,” Jackson said. “You don’t have that, you don’t...

Gregory Campbell scored an empty-net goal with 6.8 seconds left to seal the win.
Patrice Bergeron scored a go-ahead goal early in the second period to put Boston up, 2-1. It was his sixth goal in his last four games and gave him 18 points in his last 14 games.
The Bruins took a 4-3 lead within the first two minutes of the third period on goals by Mark Recchi and Michael Ryder. The Flyers responded with goals by Danny Briere and former Bruin Sean O'Donnell to take a 5-4 lead with 12 minutes left. With Danny Briere coming out of the penalty box for cross-checking Marc Savard in front of the Bruins bench, Brad Marchand beat Brian Boucher between the circles to tie teh...

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Jets special teams coach Mike Westhoff met with the media following practice on Thursday and was asked to predict the reaction he would receive from the crowd at Foxboro on Sunday. On December 12, the same day that the Jets suspended strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi indefinitely after the team learned that Alosi instructed five players to stand in a wall before he tripped Dolphins player Nolan Carroll, Westhoff suggested to a Chicago radio station that the Patriots engage in many of the same tactics.
"That was an allusion anyway," Westhoff said Thursday of his comments. "I don't really care, I don't have any comments on it. That stuff is over, to me it's over. The whole thing was sad that took place. I've moved on from it. They'll throw snowballs at me. Don't stand too close. I don't care. I certainly feel accountable for anything I alluded to, and I'm accountable for everything I do. I'll...
