Defenseless: C's no show against Kings

The lowly Kings scored 41 points in the third quarter while Marcus Thornton poured in a game-high 36 points helping Sacramento embarrass the Celtics, 120-95, Friday night at Arco Arena. The news got worse as Paul Pierce suffered an injured right ankle late in the fourth quarter, leaving with what the team termed a "mild right ankle sprain" with 6:24 left.  

Ray Allen led the Celtics with 26 points and Pierce added 19 but Rajon Rondo was off his game, scoring just four points while dishing out 12 assists. He and the Celtics were unable to handle the Kings backcourt, which got out in transition early and often.

The Celtics went on a 9-2 run to end the second quarter to close within one, 52-51, highlighted by Allen's 3-pointer. But Sacramento came out on an 18-1 run to start the third and outscored the Celtics, 41-23 in the third quarter. The 41 points is the most points allowed by Boston in any quarter this season. Thanks to 21 points...

Red Sox agree to terms with Mercedes

According to a major league source, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with 20-year-old right-handed Dominican pitcher Simon Mercedes. Mercedes would receive a signing bonus of $800,000. Ben Badler of Baseball America was first to report the agreement. 

The deal is contingent on MLB's investigation into Mercedes' age, identity and visa status. Mercedes originally agreed to a deal worth $400,000 with the San Francisco Giants last offseason, but the agreement was voided when the pitcher portrayed himself as being two years younger than his February 17, 1992 birthdate. The ban preventing Mercedes from signing with a major league team expired Wednesday.

The 6-foot-4 hurler's fastball ranges from 92-96 mph.

For more on Mercedes and why his signing represents a shift in Red Sox organizational philosophy,...

Senators win, pushing Bruins to seventh
By: DJ Bean

The slumping Bruins fell to seventh place in the Eastern Conference as the Senators defeated the Canadiens in overtime Friday in Ottawa. 

The Senators now lead the Northeast Division with 84 points, though they have played 72 games to the Bruins' 70. The B's, who currently have 83 points on the season, will have a chance to move back into first in the division Saturday with a win over the Flyers. 

The Bruins had a nine-point lead in the division in late December, but their struggles since January have allowed the Senators to catch them despite Ottawa's lack of success (10-10-3 in the last 23 games). The Bruins have lost four games in a row, their longest losing streak since January of 2010.

Bobby V: Pettitte won't be the same

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, asked about the return of left-hander Andy Pettitte to the Yankees, suggested that the 39-year-old represented a nice addition for New York, but that he will be a different pitcher than the one who walked away from the game after the 2010 season.

"I don’t think he’s coming back to where he was. Call it a hunch," Valentine told reporters. "But he’s a good pitcher. I always respected Andy. I always thought he was a borderline Hall of Famer. You add someone to your staff, you’re doing good. ... They had too much pitching before. Now, what do they have? Too, too, too much pitching? He’s pretty good. Is he going to be a starter or just come in to pick people off?"

Pettitte, who signed a minor league deal, owns a career 240-138 record with a 3.88 ERA. He last pitched in 2010 for the Yankees, going 11-3 with a 3.28 ERA while being limited to 21 starts and 129 innings by...
