Werner: Sox wanted to 'blow up that bridge'

Speaking on the Dennis & Callahan Show, Red Sox chairman Tom Werner addressed the prediction he made back on Nov. 17 (click here to hear the interview on The Big Show) that the Sox were going to both sign a big-name free-agent, and make a substantial trade. Since then, of course, the team dealt for first baseman Adrian Gonzalez while also inking outfielder Carl Crawford to seven-year pact.

Pedroia tests foot thanks to airport chaos

Appearing on The Big Show Wednesday afternoon, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia explained how an airport mix-up allowed him to sprint on his surgically-repaired left foot for the first time since the operation.

 

Traveling back from vacation with his family, along with the family of Dodgers' outfielder Andre Ethier, Pedroia was having a difficult time getting his entire group through customs, making it difficult to make its flight on time.

 

"They wanted me, who just got cleared to jog, to sprint to the gate, which is on the other side of the airport, to hold the plane up," Pedroia said. "So I'm sprinting, testing out my foot with my shoelaces untied, holding my 30-pound son -- by the way, my foot felt phenomenal -- sprinting through the airport, and I get to the gate, and I'm like, 'Ma'am, did the flight leave?' She said, 'I'm going to give you three minutes.' I'm like, 'There's no way.' Andre's kid is a...

Mashup: LeBron 'not about saving' Knicks

With the Knicks losing another game to the Celtics but claiming they've earned respect, New York moves on to prepare for Friday night's arrival from LeBron James and go back to complaining about how the superstar spurned New York to sign with the Heat in the summer. James explained yesterday some of his thinking about choosing a more established team over a struggling franchise. "Winning appeals to me. And it's all about winning. I'm not about saving franchises or saving this or that," he said. Meanwhile, Knicks president Donnie Walsh now says he knew James wasn't going to take his talents to Times Square after meeting with him.

Stafford hat trick, Boston penalties sink Bruins
By: DJ Bean

Drew Stafford provided all the offense for Buffalo as the Sabres beat the Bruins, 3-2, on Wednesday.

 

The Bruins relinquished the lead twice in the game, as they went up in first and third periods, respectively, on goals from David Krejci and Michael Ryder.

 

Gregory Campbell, Shawn Thornton and Brad Marchand, who make up the popular “Merlot line” tied one another for the team lead with four shots apiece on reigning Vezina winner Ryan Miller.

 

Tuukka Rask made 32 saves on 35 shots and fell to 2-7-1 on the season. The B’s were forced to finish the game shorthanded due to a Milan Lucic unsportsmanlike conduct penalty at 18:22, though they applied significant pressure, including a great opportunity from Patrice Bergeron with Miller down. A brawl broke out following the final horn after Miller took a shot at B’s captain Zdeno Chara in front of the net.

Rondo: 'I expect to play' Thursday

NEW YORK -- Another day, another injury for Rajon Rondo, who sprained his left ankle early in the fourth quarter Wednesday against the Knicks. Rondo rolled his ankle when he tried to plant his foot on a cut. He limped off the court, but returned later in the game. In the locker room after the Celtics 118-116 victory, Rondo was clearly in pain, but he said he would play against the Hawks Thursday. "I expect to play," he said.

 

It likely won't be his choice. Rondo said that he would get the ankle evaluated when the team returned to Boston and go from there. "It’s a little bit of everything," he said with a sigh. "Something new every game."
